Retailers 'are
finding it more
difficult to keep
doors open' due
to escalating costs
* By PAUL G TURNQUEST
Tribune Staff Reporter
pturnquest@tribunemedia.net
DUE to escalating operational
costs, almost 75 per cent of local
gas station retailers throughout
New Providence are near the
point of shutting down their loca-
tions.
During a press conference at
the Wyndham Nassau Resort yes-
terday, members of the'Bahamas
Petroleum Retailers Association
(BPRA) dismissed the notion
that local retailers were experi-
encing "windfall profits" as a
result of increased oil.prices on
the international market.
In fact, according to chairman
Charles Johnson, retailers are
finding it more and more diffi-
cult to simply keep their doors
open.
"As you are aware, the cost of
petroleum products have
increased significantly over the
past few years and there is a per-
ception that the local retailers are
making higher markups as a
result. The fact is that the high
prices at the pumps are having
an adverse affect on Petroleum
Retailers as our margins are fixed
at 44 cents per gallon on gaso-
line, and 19 cents per gallon on

PRESIDENT OF COB Janyne Hodder shakes hands with Prime Minister Hubert Ingraham who was
present at the ceremony yesterday.


* By REUBEN SHEARER
THE Freedom Foundation has donated
$10 million to the College of the Bahamas
toward the creation of its Small Island Sus-
tainability (SIS) programme, the first under-
graduate programme of its kind in the world.
President of the College Janyne Hodder
made the historic announcement yesterday at
a ceremony at the college attended by Prime'
Minister Ingraham, Minister of Education
Carl Bethel, representatives from the Free-
dom Foundation, and COB faculty.
"With partners like the Freedom Founda-
tion, we will provide the best, achieve the pos-
sible, and build the nation through educa-

tion," said Mrs Hodder. "While contributing
to the nation's talent pbol is important, the uni-
versity's contributions are so much more.
That's why tdday's investment is so critical."
The donation, presented by trustee of the
Freedom Foundation Lowell Mortimer, is the
single largest contribution to education, in the
history of The Bahamas and the Caribbean
region.
SHowever, the College's relationship with
the Freedom Foundation was sparked with
an initial donation three years ago, which cre-

Bill introduced to create legislatively
based plea bargaining system


* By BRENT DEAN
Tribune Staff Reporter
bdean@tribunemedia.net
PRIME Minister Hubert
Ingraham has introduced a
landmark bill in the House of
Assembly to create a legisla-
tively based plea bargaining sys-
tem in the Bahamas for the first
time.
This new law was one of
three significant crime bills
introduced by Mr Ingraham to
invite the opinion of the oppo-
sition before final passage into


legislation. He also tabled a
bundle of reforms to various
crime laws and a new anti-
human trafficking bill.
Ad hoc or informal plea bar-
gaining does exist in the coun-
try. However, a legislatively
based system will create rules
and protections around the
process for defendants and
prosecutors. This is likely to
lead to more matters being set-
tled without the need for
lengthy trials, potentially less-

POLICE have been inundat-

A "whole lot of" reports had
been coming in from members
of the public yesterday and the
information given is being
analysed, according Chief
Superintendent Glenn Miller,
officer in charge of the Central
Detective Unit.
As to whether the tips would
result in any new arrests, the
senior officer said: "We'll see."
On Monday Police released
a composite sketch of the man
suspected of murdering
Jamaican Marvin Wilson earlier
this month. He was depicted as
having had a shaved eyebrow
and earrings in both ears, being
around five foot eight inches
tall, weighing around 130 to
140 pounds, and being between
19 and 20 years old.
The sketch was composed
based on a description given by
an eyewitness who saw the man
running bare chested, and
apparently bleeding, down
Collin's Avenue and into
McCullough Corner on the
morning of June 3.

Crime crackdown planned


First-time sex offenders could be jailed for life


* By BRENT DEAN
Tribune Staff Reporter
bdean@tribunemedia.net
SEX offenders could get up to life in
prison for a first conviction under sweeping
new laws proposed by the government.
New child pornography laws and amend-
ments to the Sexual Violence and Domes-
tic Violence Act are designed to curb the
upsurge in crime.
And human traffickers have also been
targeted in a package of hard-hitting legis-
lation.
Prime Minister Hubert Ingraham moved
for the first reading of the bill to amend a
miscellany of acts relating to criminal law
yesterday in the House of Assembly, while
also tabling a new anti-human trafficking
bill and new plea bargaining legislation.
The current sexual offences and domes-
tic violence act has what some have
described as weak sentencing guidelines.
On a first conviction for rape, for example,
an offender is subject to a sentence of sev-
en years in prison and on a second or sub-
sequent conviction, the offender is subject
to a term of fourteen years in jail, accord-
ing to the law.
The new amendment to this act will sub-
ject offenders on conviction to a sentence
of up to life for rape; procurement for


unlawful sexual intercourse; unlawful sex-
ual intercourse with a minor under 14 years
of age; unlawful sexual intercourse with
minors between 14 and 16; unlawful sexu-
al intercourse with a person suffering from
a mental disorder; and unlawful sexual
intercourse with a dependent child.
These sentencing changes also pertain
to those convicted of attempts\to commit
these crimes.
The potential change in the. law gives


Human traffickers targeted


judges the discretion to issue either
stronger, or more lenient, sentences to
those before them convicted of these sex
crimes.
Last year, reported rapes increased by 86
per cent in the Bahamas, while attempted
rapes rose by 52 per cent and unlawful sex-
ual intercourse spiked by 15 per cent.
The bill states that the change in the law
is designed in response to the increase in
reported cases of sexual violence, with the
aim of empowering the court to.use its dis-
cretion to level appropriate sanctions based
on the matter before it, whether this is an
increased or decreased sentence from the
previous guidelines.
The child pornography provisions state
that any person who produces, whether
for the purpose of publication or not, any
child porn, is guilty of an offence and liable
to a prison term of up to life in jail.
Any.person who receives or dissemi-
nates child porn, possesses child porn or
intentionally involves a person under 18
years in pornography is subject to impris-
onment for a term of 20 years.
Child pornography is defined as a pho-
tographic, film, video or other visual rep-
resentation, whether or not it was made
or transmitted by electronic or mechanical
means, that shows a person who is, or is
being depicted as being, under 18 years in

explicit sexual activity. Additionally, it is
defined as where the dominant character-
istic of a depiction is that of a sexual organ
or the anal region of a person under 18, or
any written material or visual representa-
tion that advocates sexual activity with a
person under 18.
The new bill states that it is no defence
to assert that a person did not know the
child depicted in child porn is under 18.
However, there is a defence clause if the
material is being used for educational, sci-
entific or medical purposes.
The new laws related to sex crimes also
remove the twenty-year term of imprison-
ment for homosexuals convicted of hav-
ing sex with minors, or having gay sex in
public, and it states that such a person
would be liable to imprisonment for life.
Regarding the crime of unlawful sexual
intercourse with a minor between 14 and
16, the new bill states that it would be a suf-
ficient defence if it is made to appear to a
court or jury, that a person not over 18
not previously convicted of this offence,
believed that the victim was at or over 16.
Those convicted of indecent assault also
would be subject to 15 years in jail under
the new bill.
The prime minister tabled the bills with
the intention of receiving the input of the
opposition before they are passed.

'Extra 81.3m

to be paid to

some laid-off

Royal Oasis
aUIannbenlemn,


* By ALISON LOWE
Tribune Staff Reporter
alowe@tribunemedia.net

An additional $1.3 million will
be paid to some of the workers
laid off from the Royal Oasis
resort in Freeport, the Prime Min-
ister Ingraham said yesterday.
The government paid around
$3.5 million to workers in Decem-
ber of last year, out of a total of
$4 million it got approval from
parliament to disburse for that
purpose.
However, since that time a sig-
nificant number of ex-hotel work-
ers came forward to complain
that the money they were given -
over three years after the hotel
closed because of damage sus-
tained during Hurricane Francis -
was not adequate in light of a
number of issues.
Yesterday, the government
included a request for an addi-
tional $810,000 to meet the fur-
ther demands of these workers
as it moved three supplementary
appropriations Acts in the House
of Assembly. Minister of State
for Finance and MP for Marco
City Zhivargo Laing, told the
House of Assembly that, when
totalled, the claims of the more
than 200 people who said they
were not paid what they were
owed added up to just under $1.3
million. With only slightly over
$526,000 remaining of the $4 mil-
lion the government had appro-
priated to pay the workers, Mr
Laing said that the matter was
one that was "proving extremely
difficult" to resolve.
'If,we were going to do any-
thing within the budgeted amount
that was remaining, we were
looking at various ways of doing
it. (We) could do a percentage
for each claim (but it) proved
extremely difficult. With the
determination being made with
regard to the fact that we were
talking about maybe $810,000
over and above what it was that
we had agreed to spend that per-
haps the easiest thing to do was to
settle those claims in their entire-
ty and really to move on and close
the matter."
Mr Ingrahai suggested that it
was the fact that the Lehmann
brothers, financiers of the Drift-
wood company which owned the
Royal Oasis, followed through on
an agreement to pay government
certain funds, which has put the
government "in a position to con-
sider the requests" of the dissat-
isfied ex-employees.

COB president
hails 'innovative'
programme
* By LISA LAWLOR
Tribune Junior Reporter
COB president Janyne Hod-
der yesterday described the new
small island sustainability (SIS)
undergraduate programme, which
is expected to start in September
2009, as an "innovative pro-
gramme" that will help "make
our Bahamas an even better place
to live".
Under SIS, students will have
the option to pursue one of two
bachelor of art degrees: eco-
tourism and development, or pol-
icy studies; as well as two bache-
lor of science degrees: environ-
ment and ecosystem manage-
ment, or integrated development
planning. Graduates of the pro-
gramme will be able to pursue
careers in environmental policy,
agricultural sciences, compliance
monitoring, wholesale/retail
tfade, food production, urban/rur-
al planning, construction, devel-
opment, ecotourism, manufac-
turing, technology, conservation
and more, she said.
There are 200 available spots
on the programme, which aims
.to promote sustainability through
both theoretical and practical
training. The launch of SIS was
announced at a press conference
at COB's Chapter One Book-
store on Thompson Boulevard to
show appreciation for the $10 mil-
lion grant from the Freedom
Foundation to the college, which
made the programme possible.
Prim6 Minister Hubert Ingra-
ham addressed the press confer-
ence, saying he has long believed
that "quality of life is not simply
measured by the accumulation of
things but very much also by the
quality of our environment".

Four murdered

Grand Bahama

boys finally to

be laid to rest
By DENISE MAYCOCK
Tribune Freeport
Reporter
dmaycock@tribunemedia.net
FREEPORT The bod-
ies of four murdered boys
who disappeared in Grand
Bahama five years ago will
finally be laid to rest.
Funeral and burial
arrangements are now
being finalised by the fami-
lies, it was learned yester-
day.
A combined funeral is
expected to be held next
month for Mackinson
Colas, 11; Junior Reme, 11;
DeAngelo McKenzie, 13;
and Desmond Rolle, 14,
whose remains were
released last week.
Rev Glenroy Bethel,
founder of Families for Jus-
tice, assisted the families in
getting the boys' remains
released by the Attorney
General's Office, which had
held the remains for five
years.
"We, along with the fami-
lies and their pastors are
Meeting on Thursday to
finalise arrangements and
decide on a date and place
for the funeral," he told The
Tribune yesterday.
The Grand Bahama Port
Authority has offered to
take care of all the costs for
the funeral and burial of the
four boys.
May 9, 2003, the first of
the five schoolboys went
missing. Although the
remains of the four boys
were found, the body of 12-
year-old Jake Grant, the
first boy to disappear, has
never surfaced.
Cordell Farrington has
been charged with the mur-
ders of the four boys.
The four minors original-
ly charged with manslaugh-
ter in the death of Jake
Grant were discharged due
to insufficient evidence.

Memorial
Community activist Dud-
ley Seide is calling for a per-
manent public memorial in
Grand Bahama dedicated
to the five missing boys.
"My special appeal to the
government of the Bahamas
and the community at large
is that the five missing boys
should not be a forgotten
story.
"We need to find either a
park with the pictures of all
the boys, or it should be a
part of the history lessons in
the schools. We should nev-
er forget the lesson the five
missing boys did for the
Bahamas or Grand
Bahama," said Mr Seide.
Marilyn Davis, maternal
grandmother of DeAngelo
McKenzie, said while they
are happy to have received
the remains, it brings back a
lot of pain.
"It is hard and I thank
God for Rev Bethel
because if it wasn't for him
we would still be at square
one," she .said.
Claudette Mitchell, the
mother of Mackinson Colas,
was also relieved to finally
be burying her son.
"I feel much better now
because I have my child's
remains. I thank God we
getting some closure and I
thank the people out there
who was grieving with us
* and supporting us," she
said.
Charlene Smith, the
mother of Desmond Rolle,
was also appreciative to all
who have supported her
and her family during the
ordeal.
Mr Seide said the com-
munity must continue to
pray for the families as they
prepare to lay their sons to
rest.
"This is only a part of the
healing process and they
.had five hard long years to
grieve," he said. "I met with
the families and I saw the


pain in their eyes and I told
them that I will find a way
to find help for them.
"I met with Rev Bethel
and asked him if he could
please help the families. I
played a very small part in
connecting Rev Bethel with
the families, and I thank
him for what he has done,"
said Mr Seide.

Officers in court




in connection




with beating


a By NATARIO McKENZIE
TWO police officers charged
in connection with the beating
of a father of six who died ear-
lier this year after spending sev-
eral months in a coma, were for-
mally arraigned in the Supreme
Court yesterday morning.
Appearing before Acting Jus-
tice Elliot Lockhart on a Vol-
untary Bill of Indictment, Cor-
poral Donavon Gardiner, 35, of
Flamingo Gardens, who is
charged with manslaughter; and
Constable Tavares Bowleg, 31,,
of Garden Hills who is charged
with abetment to manslaugh-
ter, both entered a plea of not
guilty.
It is alleged that on Saturday,
January 19, by means of unlaw-
ful harm, Gardiner intentional-
ly and unlawfully caused the
death of Desmond Key.
It was further alleged that on
the same day, Bowleg aided and
abetted in the offence of


manslaughter.
Key, a father-of-six, was
reportedly beaten while
detained at The Grove police
station in June last year.
Key, 28, died at Princess Mar-
garet Hospital in January, hav-
ing never recovered from a
coma.
Attorneys Wayne Munroe
and Alex Morley of the law firm
Lockhart and Munroe appeared
for Gardiner and also held brief
for attorney Willie Moss, who is
representing officer Bowleg but
was not present at yesterday's
proceedings.
Attorney Godfrey "Pro" Pin-
der held a watching brief for


the family of the deceased.
Attorney Ambrose Brown from
the Attorney General's Office
appeared for the Crown.
According to Mr Munroe, the
position of the two officers is
that they were nowhere near
Desmond Key on January 19
when he died.
The officers, who had been
granted $10,000 bail with two
sureties in Magistrate's Court,
were granted bail in the same
sum with the same, terms by
Acting Justice Lockhart yester-
day.
The matter has' been
adjourned for a date to be
fixed.

PERSONS engaging in the
human trafficking trade may soon
face stiffer penalties and longer
prison terms if a new law is passed
by parliament.
Despite the fact that the
Bahamas has for many years been
described as a transit country for
human trafficking, up until now
there have been no specific laws,in
place to deal with the problem and
to punish culprits.
Prime Minister Hubert Ingra-
ham yesterday tabled the Traf-
ficking in Persons (Prevention and
Suppression) Act, 2008, in the
House of Assembly after it was
read for the first time.
The Act is being introduced to
"facilitate the Bahamas fulfilling PRIME MINISTEF
obligations under the United tabled te T
National protocol respecting the tabled the Traffici
trafficking in persons and to pro-
vide comprehensive measures to combat that activ-
ity."
Mr Ingraham explained that he wants to give the
opposition the opportunity to review the Act during
the summer break before it is a read a second time.
The prime minister added that he also wants a
committee comprised of government and opposition
members to meet during the break to look at this
and two other Acts which were tabled yesterday.
The Bahamas has long been criticised for not rat-
ifying the protocol, although it signed the document.
in 2001.
Two weeks ago, the US State Department for a
third consecutive year described the Bahamas as a
"special case" in its annual Trafficking in Persons
Report.
Although the US commended the Bahamian gov-
ernment for its collaboration with the International
Organisation for Migration, the State Department
recommended, among other anti-trafficking mea-
sures, that the Bahamas enact specific legislation
to address the problem.
According to the Trafficking in Persons Act, any


IHi
kin


person who engages in, or con-
spires to engage in, attempts to
engage in or assists or facilitates
another person to engage in
human trafficking, will, on sum-
mary conviction which is heard
before the lower courts be sen-
tenced to not less than three years
and not more than five years
imprisonment.
In cases of human trafficking
which are heard before a jury in
the higher court, persons can be
sentenced to life imprisonment or
to a term not less than five years.
SThe Act will also make punish-
!able by law "the.unlawful with-
holding of identification papers"
and the "transporting of a person
for the purpose of exploiting such
person's prostitution."
"Persons convicted of the crime
of transporting a person for the
rt Inpraham purpose of exploiting that person-
Subert sngrahac 's prostitution shall be liable on
g in Persons Act summary conviction to a fine of
$15,000 and to'imprisonment for
three years," the proposed Act states.
Other factors, including the transport of two or
more persons; the infliction of permanent or life-
threatening bodily injury to a victim; or the transport
of one or more children, can result in longer prison
sentences.
Further, according to the Act, if a person is con-
victed of trafficking in persons, "the court
shall order the defendant to pay restitution to the
victim."
The Act also covers the subject of the protection
for the safety of the victims of the trafficking trade.
"All law enforcement agencies and other appro-
priate authorities shall take all steps necessary to
identify victims of trafficking.
"When victims are identified, these authorities
shall provide reasonable protection to them to pre-
vent their recapture by the traffickers and their
associates," the Act states.
The Act names the Minister of National Securi-
ty as the person responsible for securing the victim
and the victim's family, if they reside in the Bahamas,
from threats.

THERE WAS much posturing, and time
wasting in the House of Assembly yesterday
- really playing to a television audience-
especially when Thomas More MP Frank Smith
accused the Prime Minister of "misleading the
House" in his Budget presentation. Considering
that the Budget was passed by both sides of
the House, it is rather late in the day for an
Opposition member to suddenly discover that
the tax proposals will not bring down the cost of
living as he claimed the Prime Minister had
said they would.
Nowhere did the Prime Minister promise
that his budget would lower the cost of living,
but the fact that all taxes have been removed
from 160 essential items on the food list means
that those items.- regardless of how high the'
prices rise at source will be lower than if the
taxes were still on. Government has no control
over the price at which the manufacturer or
producer will sell'his goods, nor has the importer
any control over the cost of transporting those
goods to market. And so while prices might
continue to climb on the 160 items from which
tax has been removed, and these goods might
even be more expensive than what the con-
sumer was paying last year, they will not be as
high as they would be if government taxes were
still on.
In the Budget which was clear for all to
see some items will be more expensive, some
will be less when the new Excise Tax comes
into effect next,week. But it is rather foolish to
suggest that the'Prime Minister misled anyone
when everything was clearly set out and the
Opposition including Mr Smith --voted
their agreement. Although the Speaker even-
tually got Mr Smith to withdraw his "mislead-
ing" charge against the Prime Minister, Mr
Smith did. not seem convinced. He thought he
had a good point, and he seemed determined to
stick with it.
All his performance suggested to us was that
Mr Smith voted before he had studied what he
was voting for.
We suggest that members, who have not
already done so, read their Mays Parliamen-
tary Practice to discover that to accuse a mem-
ber of "misleading the House" is one of the
most serious accusations that can be made. In
the British parliament it often leads to the res-
ignation of that member if the charge is proved.
However, despite government being accused
of not treating crime seriously, the bill tabled in
the House yesterday by the Prime Minister
shows that a lot of time and serious thought
has been put into assisting the police and judi-
ciary in getting crime under control.
The Prime Minister has tabled a bill; amend-
ing several acts relating to criminal law. He has

done so at this time just before the House
adjourns for its summer recess -- to give the
Opposition ample lime to study the amend-
ments and come back with meaningful sugges-
tions.
We hope the Opposition will take this task
seriously. This is a non-partisan matter that
affects every man, woman and child in the
nation, and the public will expect both sides to
give the matter serious consideration. No one is
going to accept any one of them playing to the
cameras. The public wants government and
opposition to take crime by the horns and wres-
tle it to the ground.
What went on in the House yesterday will
not be tolerated.
The bill deals with plea bargaining, elec-
tronic monitoring of convicted offenders and
those on bail, a suggestion of a life sentence for
sex offenders and child abusers, and long prison
terms for those convicted as accessories after the
fact to various crimes. There are suggestions
for degrees of murder, which introduces
manslaughter as an alternative to a murder
charge on which a jury would be unlikely to
convict. All this is to try to reduce court time.
Very strict rules have been laid down for
plea bargaining, which will be officially intro-
duced into our system.
Mr Ingraham explained.that the bills in their
present state have not been fully considered by
government, but he was tabling them because he
wanted a full discussion with the Opposition
on the legislation. He has given members the
summer to collect their thoughts and come up
with meaningful suggestions.
Parliamentarians now have to make certain
that the controls in place to try to avoid abuse
are sufficiently strict that the criminal justice
system.- as happened in England in April is
not castigated for its sloppy and "nonchalant"
approach, which contributed to the fatal stab-
bing of an innocent man on a London bus by a
criminal on bail. A culture of "apparent accep-
tance" to the breaching of bail conditions by
officials was blamed for this man's death.
A damning report by four criminal justice
watchdogs condemned a lax attitude among
officials in the English courts, probation and
police to enforcing bail conditions, as well as to
the committing of offences on bail.
"What we have found," said the report, "is
what may best be described as a lackadaisical or
nonchalant approach within the criminal jus-
tice system to many routine aspects of the han-
dling of cases."
Maybe our legislators should include in our
laws penalties for such administrative breeches.
This will certainly keep everyone at peak per-
formance.

EDITOR, The Tribune.
THE unexpected defeat of
the proposed approval of The
Lisbon Treaty by the voters
of.The Irish Republic on
Thursday via a public and,hot-
ly contested referendum may
have grave implications for
the success or failure of the
approval by our parliament
for the Economic Partnership
Agreement.
Hitherto, the other 27
nations of Europe had, by par-
liamentary manoeuvres, had
all approved the draft consti-
tution for European political
and economic hegemony.
That is, up until 2005 when
the draft was decisively reject-
ed by French and Dutch vot-
ers. By a complex set of rules
and regulations, all of the pro-
posed members of this union
must approve the draft.
The draft was defeated by
a comfortable margin and the
framers of the proposed EU
constitution are constrained
to go back to the drawing
board. The draft was defeated
despite it being supported by
all of the major political par-
ties in the Republic of Ireland;
a large segment of big busi-
ness and, of course, the British
Government of Gordon
Brown.
The Treaty of Lisbon, like


the proposed Economic Part-
nership Agreement, is a volu-
minous document of several
hundreds of pages in arcane
language which few in Ireland,
much less The Bahamas, are
able to comprehend and
understand.
What is remarkable about
this whole constitutional exer-
cise is the fact that the gov-
ernment of Ireland put the
approval or rejection of The
Lisbon Treaty to a public ref-
erendum. In fact, Ireland is
the only European nation, so
far, to respect it's citizens'
political maturity.
By contrast, not a single
Caricom country, inclusive, of
The Bahamas, appears to have
the political guts to trust it's
electorate with such a funda-
mental and far reaching vote.
Why? Is there something
which they are trying to hide
or conceal from us?
The Bahamas' nearest and
most supportive trading part-
ner is the USA. Yet, we seek
to offer favoured nation status
to the Europeans who are
more than 5,000 miles away?
What sort of cock-eyed logic is
this or is it some sick joke


which is being played out?
The so-called Bahamians
Against the Referendum on
Trade (BARF), while making
a lot of noise and public pos-
turing, has been just as inef-
fectual as the government
in selling it's position to an
ignorant and suspicious
Bahamas. More information
is urgently needed and some-
one must finance a public
campaign on this vital trade
agreement before we execute
the same.
The Prime Minister, the Rt
Hon Hubert A Ingraham, MP,
PC, has already stated that
under his watch, this time
around, that there will be no
referendum or referenda on
any issues.
This cannot be right, but, as
leader of the government, it
is his call to make, even if we,
the people of.The Bahamas
feel differently. Our collective
views do not appear to
amount to a hill of flatulent
baked beans. Let the people
decide on the way forward.
Do we really need the Euro-
peans as our major trading
partner? I have grave and seri-
ous doubts.
To God then, in all things,
be the glory.

to the usual 'lost souls'
sprawled about the covered
sections of public buildings
and sobering up for the next
"bout"; we have, over the past
few years, seen a great
increase in the number of
homeless on our streets and
these seem to be mentally
impaired and truly incapable
of even begging.
Something has to be done
for these people.
It makes no sense to build
pretty Bus Stop shelters,
redesign Bay Street, make lots
of new attractions and spend
millions of dollars to keep the
tourists coming to the very
beautiful Bahamas if they are
going to be subjected to the
harassment, dirty mouth and
filth of the "staple" group in
various "territories" and hav-
ing to note the very pathetic
humans with nowhere to go.
About 95 per cent of the
vagrants are men....why so?
To make an effort to fix this


(realising it is not an easy task
but I have every confidence
that government will do some-
thing) and here is one sugges-
tion which came up in the ear-
ly 80's where a number of us
were pleading for "mandatory
rehabilitation" of the then
drug zombies on the streets.
Do we have an area (or
island) where these people can
be housed and taught a trade
(boat building, farming, craft,
etc...etc...) and hopefully
redeem enough self respect to
come back and look for a job
or start a small business?
While on the subject of
plights hitting sensitive nerves
of visitors we want to impress,
let's not forget the great
impact also of the stray and
sick animal situation in this
beautiful Bahamas.

gold chalice

off Key West
* KEY WEST, Fla.
SHIPWRECK salvagers
have recovered a gold chal-
ice while searching for the
wreckage of a Spanish
galleon off the Florida
Keys, according to Associ-
ated Press.
The ornate two-handled
chalice stands on a gold
base and is adorned with
etched scrollwork on the
upper portion. It was locat-
ed by Blue Water Ventures
diver Michael DeMar
beneath about a foot of
sand in 18 feet of water
approximately 30 miles
west of Key West.
The late Key West trea-
sure hunter Mel Fisher
began the search for arti-
facts from the Santa Mar-
garita, which sank in 1622,
more than a quarter-centu-
ry ago.
The chalice is slated to
arrive at a Key West labo-
ratory Wednesday morn-
ing. Experts hope cleaning
it will reveal more details of
a crest etched inside the
bottom of the piece.

Election


* By BRENT DEAN
Tribune Staff Reporter
bdean@tribunemedia.net
ZHIVARGO LAING has
rested his case in the Election
Court, making way for the par-
ties to make final submissions,
and the court a ruling, to decide
who is the lawful winner of the
Marco City constituency in the
2007 election.
Justice Jon Isaacs began yes-
terday's brief session, ruling that
Philip Davis, Pleasant Bridgewa-
ter's attorney, would not be
allowed to call three additional
witnesses after having already
rested his client's case.
The witnesses Mr Davis intend-
ed to call were all being chal-
lenged by Mr Laing.
In the case of Diana Swann, a
former ZNS broadcaster, Mr
Davis said that she wanted to
come before the court to tell her
side of the story about her resi-
dence before the election.
Ms Swann, who is being chal-
lenged by Mr Laing, was present
outside the court yesterday but
could not testify because of the
ruling.
After Justice Isaacs announced
the ruling, Fred Smith, Mr Laing's
attorney, surprised most of those
present and rested his case.
"With that I can say the first
respondent closes its case," he


U -


said. "We have no more evidence
to call."
Mr Smith had said on Tuesday
that his side has three witnesses
left to call.
On August 14, both sides
agreed to exchange final written
submissions and provide them to
the court. August 21 and 22 have
been set aside for final oral sub-
missions.
The parties also agreed to
inform the court of the final num-
ber of people being challenged
on the lists of both Ms Bridge-
water and Mr Laing. As of the
last count, Ms Bridgewater is

challenging 80 voters and Mr
Laing 22.
Senior Justice Anita Allen
thanked both attorneys for their
assistance and behaviour during
the proceedings. She said that the
"case ran extremely well."
Mr Davis responded express-
ing his gratitude to the court. He
said that "its always a pleasure
appearing before the both of
you."
Mr Smith echoed the pleas-
antries expressed by Justice Allen
and Mr Davis. He too said it was
a "pleasure" appearing before the
court and working with Mr Davis,

described as "swimming in a

Once the final submissions are
completed the justices will have to

they determine that more votes

victory (47) are to be disallowed,
then.a scrutiny or recount will be
ordered to determine the true

Man arrested in connection with


suspected illegal drug transaction


* By DENISE MAYCOCK
Tribune Freeport Reporter
dmaycock@tribunemedia.net
FREEPORT A Bimini man has
been arrested in connection with a sus-
pected illegal drug transaction.
According to police, around the time
of his arrest at the Grand Bahama Inter-
national Airport, they also confiscated
more than $50,000 in US currency,
which was found is some baggage.


According to the police reports, the
arrest was made at the Regional Air
Terminal shortly after the man arrived
in Freeport onboard a flight from Bimi-
ni at around 5.35pm on Monday.

Investigations
Chief Superintendent Basil Rahming
said the 47-year-old male resident of
Bailey Town, Bimini, is assisting police
with their investigations.


Acting on a tip, Grand Bahama Drug
Enforcement Unit officers, along with
Airport Division officers, conducted a
surveillance operation around the
Regional Airline Terminal at the air-
port on Monday afternoon.
They confronted the man as he dis-
embarked from the Bimini flight.
The police say they suspect that the
$50,000 they confiscated at the airport
may be the proceeds of criminal activi-
ty.

Upgrading of UWI's medicine



programme hailed as 'an



investment in Bahamians'


* By Llonella Gilbert
THE upgrading and continu-
ation of the University of the
West Indies' clinical medicine
programme and its expansion
to include research is yet anoth-
er investment in the future of
the Bahamian people, Minister
of Education Carl Bethel said.
Mr Bethel said that it will
touch and bring healing to many
lives and reap immeasurable
benefits to the Bahamas.
He added that the investment
should also serve to foster a
spirit of regionalism.
Mr Bethel was addressing the
UWI School of Clinical Medi-
cine and Research induction
and award ceremony for the
graduating class this week.
"I understand that, to date,
over 150 professionals have
graduated from this programme
since its establishment in 1997
and that this year's cohort
includes a graduate from as far
away as Botswana, Africa," he
said.
"I believe that this is signifi-
cant as it speaks to the interna-
tionalisation of education.
"Of significance too is that I
am informed that this year,
Bahamians in this graduating
class have earned the highest
number of distinctions and hon-
ours in comparison with other
programmes in our region, par-
ticularly in obstetrics and gynae-
cology."
The minister noted that the
country is moving towards the
implementation of the National
Pharmaceutical Drug Assis-
tance Programme and the
National Catastrophic Health
Insurance system.
He said: "no system of
national catastrophic health
insurance can be sustained with-

E-passports processing backlog should

be resolved by August, says Minister


* By LISA LAWLOR
THE massive backlog in the
processing of the new electron-
ic passports is expected to be
resolved by August, Foreign
Affairs Minister Brent Symon-
ette said.
Mr Symonette told The Tri-
bune that he recognizes that
there is a backlog, but insisted
that this problem is just a "sum-
mer issue", which will be
resolved in the next two
months.
Mr Symonette's statements
come days after Fox Hill MP
Fred Mitchell called on him to
make "desperately needed"
changes to the passport issuance
system.
Mr Symonette explained that
the passport office is currently
seeking to increase the number
of staff in the department and is
hoping to extend the office's
working day by two hours.
The passport office is also
considering to open on week-
ends, he added.
However, the minister said
that these changes all depend
on the ability to find more
employees.
The desks at the passport
office cannot all be attended at
present because of a "burn-out
in staff," caused by the amount
Sof work and pressure the per-
sonnel are under, Mr Symon-
ette said.
Passport officers now suggest
that all applicants, children and
infants included, wait outside
the office starting at 5am to
begin the new e-passport appli-
cation process.
The office is open 9am to
4pm, and although children
under 14 are not required to
give their fingerprints, they still
need to "account for (their)
existence as your son or daugh-
ter," a passport officer
explained.
Parents are therefore obliged
to pull their children out of
school for this process.
Mr Symonette explained that
they have had fraudulent docu-
ment requests for children that
were "no longer alive or were
not real people.".
The passport officer who
spoke to The Tribune, also sug-
gested that applicants from the
Family Islands should be pre-
pared to stay in Nassau for six
weeks while their new passports
are processed.
It is possible to make an
appointment, but no dates are
available until the end of Sep-
tember.
"The e-passport will allow for
heightened security features and
will combat illegal immigra-


tion," Mr Symonette said.
The requirements for obtain-
ing the new e-passport have
made it particularly difficult for
Bahamians to follow through
with their travel plans this sum-
mer, one applicant told The Tri-
bune.
The passport applicant, who
did not wished to be named,
said she gave the passport office
more than the suggested time
to process her documents so she
could travel on July 5.
After waiting for hours in a
long queue, the applicant said
she was finally able to apply for
her new e-passport on May 28.
She was then told to come
back in two weeks to pick up
her new e-passport.
When she returned to the
office on the given date, she was
told to come bick in another
two weeks.


She has now visited the pass-
port for a third time and her
travel documents are still not
ready.
"To me it's just ridiculous,"
she said.
"I might not be able to travel
for this holiday that I already
have the tickets for."
She said she also heard about
the difficulties of other appli-
cants while she was standing in
line at the passport office.
One man, she said, was
turned away at the closing time
of 4pm with no passport, unable
to travel the next day for his
doctor's appointment in Florida.
She said that mothers with
three or four children, all under
the age of 10, had difficulty
cramming their families into the
small office to receive one of
the 80 service numbers avail-
able that day.

After three failed attempts
of being considered the best all
around athlete in the Royal
Bahamas Defence Force, Lead-
ing Seaman Marvin Darville
finally captured the prestigious
Ironman title for the first time
in the event's nine-year histo-
ry.
Woman Marine Tamika
Thompson successfully recap-
tured her crown in the open
female category for an unprece-
dented fourth time.
The annual competition fea-
tures the fittest male and female
officers and marines the force
has to offer, and gives its win-
ners coveted bragging rights for
one full year.
Male participants must com-
plete a 500 metre swim, cycle
eight miles and run a three-mile
road race. Their female coun-
terparts are required to com-


.on


LEADING SEAMAN Marvin Darville

plete a shortened circuit.
Men's defending champion,
Sub Lieutenant Ricardo Barry
watched from the sidelines -
due to insufficient time to pre-
pare for the event as Officer
Darville dethroned him in a
time of 59:38. Sub Lieutenant
Derrick Ferguson's 1:15.16 and
Able Seaman Edney Russell's
1:11.45 brought them second
and third, respectively.
"The victory was great, but
the competition was not as stiff
as I expected", Officer Darville
said. "Maybe if either Sub
Lieutenant Barry or Greg Bur-
rows was in the race, I believe
they would have given me a bet-
ter push".
As the lone female competi-
tor in her category, Able
Woman Marine Thompson
completed a shortened female's
version of the grueling circuit
in 55:28. "I really didn't have
much time to prepare for this
event, but I am pleased with my
time", she said. "With the
amount of females on the force,
I personally felt that there
should have been more com-
petitors in my division".
In the team segment of the
competition, the male team of
Philip Farrington, Ramon Storr
and Chadwick Aneas prevailed
in the time of 1:01.51, and the
female team of Tina Schroeter,
Apryl Moultrie and Tanya
Rolle completed the course in
51:54.

Nassau committee



raising regatta funds


Event will

be held in

honour of

late David

Romer

THE grounds at Morgan's
Bluff, North Andros, are
being pruned to perfection,
the stalls are being renovated
and painted in readiness for
15th Annual All Andros and
the Berry Islands Regatta to
be held on Independence
weekend, July 10 to July 12.
And while the regatta site
upgrade is going on in Andros,
the Nassau committee, headed
by accountant Danny Fergu-
son, is actively engaged in
gathering the funds for the
event.
The committee's major
fundraiser is a boat cruise on
the vessel East Wind on Sat-
urday, June 28. Funds are also
being solicited via advertising
in the committee's souvenir
booklet.
This year's event is in hon-
our of the late David Romer -
a leading businessman and a
founder of the regatta.
The David Romer Cup race
is one of several cup races to
be staged.
A host of on-shore activi-
ties are planned, including
entertainment by the Spank
Band and Andros' own Elon
.Moxey.
Regular races are scheduled
in four classes with entrants
from the three Nassau sailing
clubs. Top finishers in classes


DAVID ROMER, the late founder
of the Annual All Andros and
the Berry Islands Regatta.

A and B will receive $2,4000
and $1,4000, respectively.
Mr Ferguson said that he
predicts that this year's event
will "bigger and better" than
the regattas of previous years..
"This is our committee's
second year of planning the
regatta. We are much better at
it this year than in our rookie
year," he said.
"We are expecting to stage
a bigger and better event and
invite especially all
Androsians, people from (the)
Berry Islands, indeed all
Bahamians to support the
regatta which means so much
to the economic well-being of
those communities."
The regatta, which provides
a significant economic boost
to the North Andros commu-
nities, started in Conch Sound
in 1986 and was relocated to
Morgan's Bluff in 1993.

HOPEDALE Centre is
exactly that a guiding light
for children traditionally not
accepted by society and
mainstream schools.
Christian Ferguson, previ-
ously rejected by three other
schools, has become a con-
noisseur and craftsman of
intricate and detailed jew-
ellery.
He is one of several 18-
year-olds who have discov-
ered a newfound level of
pride and dignity through
this art form.
Christian has been hired in
two wedding ceremonies so
far to fashion matching jew-
ellery for the bridal dresses,
and has also exhibited at an
Arawak Cay crafts fair for
the last two years.
His mother Shirley calls
him the "gentle giant", and
describes him as helpful and
calm. "Christian is able to
sweep, mop, make the bed,
he can do everything!" she
told The Tribune.
Some of Christian's fellow
students are autistic, some
have language problems,
Down's syndrome, or are
mildly retarded.
But, the point emphasised
every day by Hopedale's
founder and director Arlene
Davis is that "you can't con-
centrate on what you can't
do, but what you can".
Christian will continue the
craft he has perfected, one
that his mother also now par-
takes in.
They are .a mother and son

other, selling matching ear-
ring and necklace sets, as
well as other bead and shell
creations such as conch
lamps, brooches, and hair


barrettes. rewarding road to travel in
These can all be made to life. "I don't want him to be
order within a matter of locked up in the house, as
hours or days, depending on the common stereotype dic-
the quantity desired. states she said.
Shirley stressed the impor- Mrs Davis said that pro-
tance of those not gifted aca- gramming is essential, and

ening the backlog of cases in

The plea discussions, as set
oul in the bill, will be between
the accused and the prosecu-
tor involved. Accused people
can only enter in plea discus-
sion under the new law if they
are represented by an attor-
ney. This provision can only
be waived if an accused per-
son waives their right to an
attorney in writing.
Once a deal is reached, it
is to be set out in a form and
signed by the accused and the
prosecutor before it is filed
in the registry of the court.
The matter would then been
set down for hearing before
the court.
In the next phase of the
process, the matter would be
heard by the court in cham-
bers in the presence of the
attorney for the accused or
the accused if he has no attor-
ney and the prosecutor. The
substance of and the reasons
for the agreement are here
disclosed to the court, along
with the disclosure of whether
or not the agreement is before
another judge or magistrate.
When the deal is taken to
open court, the judge or mag-
istrate shall before accepting
the deal, determine that no

Bill introduced to

create legislatively based

plea bargaining system


whether the accused person
understands the agreement;
and that the offence to which
the agreement relates, ade-
quately reflects the gravity of
the "provable conduct of the
accused," unless in excep-
tional circumstances the
agreement is justifiable in
terms of the benefits to the
administration of justice or
the protection of society.
The role of victims in this
process is also addressed in
the new law. Prosecutors
"may" obtain the views of the
victim or relative of the victim
before concluding plea dis-
cussions, however, this is not
obligatory. Once the discus-
sions are concluded and a
deal arrived at, the prosecutor
can also inform the victim of
the substance of the


agreement.
In the open court phase of
the process, a judge or magis-
trate may seek the views of
the victim or a relative of the
victim before the recording of
the terms of the agreement or
the passing of sentence.
An accused person can
withdraw from the plea deal
at any time up to the passing
of sentence. In cases where
accused people enter into
deals to give testimony
against others, and then
refuse to do so breaking the
deal, the plea bargain is null
and void.
Prosecutors are not allowed
to appeal against sentences
given by judges or magistrates
once the sentence is within
the range anticipated by the
plea deal, unless the prosecu-


tor can show that during the
negotiations they were wil-
fully misled by the accused;
or if the court, in passing sen-
tence was wilfully misled.
"We would like to engage
members opposite in discus-
sions on these bills prior to
moving forward for final pas-
sage. When we take the sum-
mer adjournment, unless we
would have read them for the
first time, we would not have
a means by which we could
move for the second reading
inclusive of any amendments,
when we return," said the
prime minister yesterday.
Mr Ingraham explained
that the "bills have not been
fully considered by the gov-
ernment." However, he said
that he has tabled them to
cause a discussion with the
opposition on the legislation.
He said that he desires for a
committee of both sides to
meet over the summer to dis-
cuss the legislation in order
for the input of both sides to
be a part of the process as
much as that is possible.

Last year, an interdisciplinary group of Col-
lege faculty, led by Dean of the Faculty of Pure
and Applied Sciences, Dr. Brendamae Cleare,
presented their new vision of the SIS programme
to the Freedom Foundation for funding consid-
eration, due to the lack of capital to execute
plans.
From the $10 million gift, four new facilities
named after the Freedom Foundation's founder,
the late GTR Campbell, will be constructed to
house the SIS.programme.
The facilities featuring a library, laboratories,
classrooms, exhibition space, faculty and admin-
istrative offices; a greenhouse; and a farm build-
ing, will be built at the Gladstone Road Agricul-
ture Centre (GRAC), where the college has
received commitment for a transfer of an addi-
tional 10 acres of land from the Ministry of Agri-
culture.
Describing the announcement as a "signifi-
cant step of the College's transition to Universi-
ty status," Prime Minister Ingraham said that the
donation will assist the country, "in a very tangi-
ble way of realising its development goals, par-
ticularly in agriculture and food production."
Mr Ingraham explained that the training
offered in the,SIS programme will help the


Bahamas to maximize its potential, and become
less reliant upon food imports that can be easily
produced at home.
"The introduction of the Small Island Sus-
tainability Programme will assist us in building our
national capacity to support the building and
strengthening of a diversified, sustainable econ-
omy," he said.
Mr Ingraham who saluted the collective efforts
of President Hodder and the Freedom Founda-
tion, reaffirmed government's support of COB's
university ambitions.
According to Dr Brendamae Cleare, SIS pro-
gramme director, the programme will consist of
four innovative concentrations: two Bachelor of
Science degrees, one in Environmental and
Ecosystems Management, and one in Integrated
Development Planning; two Bachelor-of Arts
degrees, one in Ecotourism and Development,
and one in Policy Studies.
Graduates of the programme will be able to
pursue careers in environmental policy, agricul-
tural sciences, compliance/monitoring, whole-
sale/retail trade, food production, urban/rural
planning, construction, development, ecotourism,
manufacturing, technology, conservation and
more.
Construction is expected to commence later
this year, Mrs Hodder said.,Students will be able
to enrol in the Small Island Sustainability pro-
gramme for the Fall semester of 2009.

o In brief

Suspects
shot by police
had fake gun,
no gun

* JACKSONVILLE, Fla.
OF THE two men shot by
Jacksonville police in sepa-
rate incidents earlier this
week, one had no gun and the
other had a fake gun, accord-
ing to Associated Press.
Police say an officer shot
and killed Artavious Edmond
Debose on Monday. He and
several other men had robbed
a video game store. Police say
at least one of the other men
involved in the robbery had a
gun, but Debose did not.
Earlier that day, police say
James Martin Imbrani tried
to rob a bank with a BB gun.
After leading officers on a
vehicle chase, police say
Imbrani got out of his car and
pointed the fake weapon at
officers. They shot him sev-
eral times, leaving him in crit-
ical condition.
Florida law says officers
can use force if they believe
fleeing felons pose a threat
to the officer or others.

ZIMBABWE OPPOSITION leader and presidential hopeful Morgan
Tsvangirai speaks at a news conference in Harare, Zimbabwe, Tuesday
June 10, 2008. (AP Photo)
* HARARE, Zimbabwe
ZIMBABWE'S opposition leader has left the Dutch Embassy for
the first time since fleeing there over the weekend, according to
Associated Press.
Morgan Tsvangirai addressed reporters at his home after leaving
the embassy Wednesday. He looked relaxed as he repeated his
rejection of a presidential runoff set for Friday.
Tsvangirai pulled out of the runoff against President Robert
Mugabe, saying attacks on his supporters by police, soldiers and mil-
itant Mugabe party members made a free and fair vote impossible.
Tsvangirai sought refuge at the embassy following after getting
a tip soldiers were headed to his home.

FROM page one
government elections be held today. The
claimants complained that Minister Collie
and Mr Bethel had failed to comply in
material respects with the provisions of the
Local Government Act and Parliamentary
Elections Act.
The ruling by Justice Jon Isaacs yesterday
declared that the minister's order to hold
the elections, in part was "null and void."
The ruling was made after the attorneys
for Minister Collie and Parliamentary Com-
missioner Bethel, the respondents, had
conceded that the order had not been
gazetted and tabled as required by the
Interpretations and General Clauses Act.
"The effect of this is that in the case of
West End, Bimini and Exuma for sure the
local government elections cannot proceed
because those elections are dependent on
the validity of the ministerial orders which
have been declared void," Mr Gomez, who
represented the claimants in the applica-
tion for judicial review said yesterday.
"There may be other constituencies and


Local govt elections
districts which are also similarly affected.
While I have not had instructions from per-
sons in other districts, it appears as though
South Andros is also affected, it also
appears that Eight Mile Rock and the city
of Freeport are affected. So, a huge por-
tion of the local government elections are
adversely affected by these proceedings,"
Mr Gomez said.
Mr Gomez said that a new order should
be made for the holding of elections in
those districts. "There must be conformity
with the Local Government Act which
requires that the local government coun-
cillors and representatives are elected peri-
odically," Mr Gomez said.
Mr Gomez said that elections in areas
not directly affected by yesterday's ruling
will be affected by what has happened with
regard to the notification process.
"If people have not been notified in a
fashion that gives them an opportunity to
nominate within the prescribed time set

ter Hubert Ingraham. It
introduces this law and sanc-
tion, while also creating new
provisions for the electronic
monitoring of convicted
offenders and those on bail.
An accessory after the fact
to the commission of an
offence under the new bill is
a person who, knowing that
another has been a party to
an offence, receives, comforts
or assists that person for the
purpose of enabling that per-
son to avoid the "due process
of the law."
Evidence of the conviction
of the perpetrator to the
offence is admissible, accord-
ing to the new bill, in the con-
viction of the accessory.
And, in the absence of evi-
dence to the contrary, is
proof that the offence was
committed.
Those convicted of being
accessories after the fact to
crimes other than murder


and treason are liable to a
term in prison not exceeding
15 years.
Those imprisoned for a
period of three years or
upwards, on sentencing, can
be subjected to police super-
vision for a period not
exceeding five years.
On applications by the per-
son and with the consent of
the Crown, that person,
instead of any part of the
term of imprisonment deter-
mined by the court, can be
subjected to electronic mon-
itoring.
When a person is convicted
of an offence and sentenced
to less than three years in jail,
the court can instead of
ordering imprisonment, order
that the person be subject to
electronic monitoring for all
or a part of the sentence.
A person can be subject to
electronic monitoring while
on bail for an offence that
carries a sentence of three
years or more, according to
the new bill.


Those subjected to
supervision, but not i.
will also be ordered to r
on specific times to
officer in charge ol
police station neare
them.
If they are convicted
sexual offence, that pe
will have to notify the
cer of his place of world
of any educational, spo
civic or other activity
which he is involved.
SThe minister of nat
security is responsible
making and carrying
rules under this section
proposed law.
Additionally, no dr
licenses will be issue

standing fine notwiths

out in the Parliamentary Elections Act, that
is a deficiency that can be taken up at the
end of the process," Mr Gomez said.
Chairman of the Progressive Liberal Par-
ty Glenys Hanna-Martin commended the
three individuals (from Bimini, Exuma and
Grand Bahama) who had challenged the
ministerial order.
"This is an important day because what
was at stake was a very fundamental issue.
It's an issue of democracy in this country,"
she said.
"The stakes are very high in terms of
what it means to these communities," she
said. Mrs Hanna-Martin said that the local
government elections are to be conducted in
accordance with the Parliamentary Elec-
tions Act, the same process by which gen-
eral elections are held.
One of the claimants, Woodrow Jones
of Bimini said that yesterday's ruling was a
victory "for all people throughout the
Bahamas."
At press time last night it was still unclear
if any of the Local Government elections
will go ahead today.

* WASHINGTON
DESPITE persistently high oil
prices, global energy demand will
grow by 50 percent over the next
two decades with continued
heavy reliance on environmen-
tally troublesome fossil fuels,
especially coal and oil, the gov-
ernment predicted Wednesday.
The projections by the Energy
Department's statistical agency
said that without mandatory
actions to address global warm-
ing, the amount of heat-trapping
carbon dioxide flowing into the
atmosphere each year from ener-
gy use will be 51 percent greater
in 2030 than it was three years
ago. "Fossil fuels ... are expected
to continue supplying much of
the energy used worldwide," the
Energy Information Administra-
tion report predicts, in spite of
the growth of renewable energy
sources, especial wind and bio-
fuels.
"Global energy demand grows
despite the sustained high world
oil prices that are project to per-
sist over the long term," said the
report. Oil could cost as little as
$113 a barrel or as much as $186
a barrel in 2030, the analysis con-
cluded.
The report provided both high
and low price scenarios because
of the uncertainties of projecting
future long-term energy prices.
Given current oil prices, the
report says world oil prices
appear on a path that more close-
ly resembles the higher price sce-
nario of $183 a barrel oil in 22
years.
Still, the report predicted con-
tinued growth of petroleum use
in transportation and heavy coal
use to produce electricity.
The report assumes in its
analysis no additional measures
to curtail carbon dioxide emis-
sions to address climate change.
The expected growth in energy
demand is especially dramatic in'
developing countries, led by Chi-
na, that are expected to have con-
tinued strong economic growth
over the next two decades.
For example, the use of coal
worldwide is expected to increase
at a rate of 2 percent a year. Chi-
na alone will account for nearly
three-fourths of that increase, the
report said.

Four Americans, six Iraqis killed in




Baghdad blast at council building


* US troops capture suspect


U Shiite extremists blamed for attack


By SINAN SALAHEDDIN
BAGHDAD
A bomb struck a municipal
council building yesterday in
Baghdad's Shiite Sadr City dis-
trict, killing four Americans,
including two soldiers and two
U.S. government civilian
employees, U.S. officials said.
At least six Iraqi civilians also
died, according to the Associat-
ed Press.
U.S. troops captured a sus-.
pect who tested positive for
explosive residue after fleeing
the scene, the military said. It
blamed Shiite extremists for the
attack.
The blast occurred at 9:30
a.m., about half an hour before
a scheduled meeting to elect a
chairman of the local council in
the Shiite militia stronghold, an
Iraqi official said, speaking on
condition of anonymity for
security reasons.
The bomb exploded in the
office where the meeting was
to have occurred, the official
said, adding that at least three
council members were serious-
ly wounded.
The district council office is in
a southern section of Sadr City
that is largely controlled by U.S.
and Iraqi troops following
weeks of fighting in the area.
A U.S. military statement
said one U.S. soldier was
wounded in addition to the two
soldier fatalities. U.S. Embassy
spokeswoman Mirembe Nan-
tongo said the American civil-
ians included one State Depart-
ment and one Defense Depart-
ment employee.
U.S. Secretary of State Con-
doleezza Rice, in Berlin for a
conference on Palestinian secu-
rity, was informed of the attack
\ shortly after it occurred and
spoke with U.S. Ambassador to
Iraq Ryan Crocker about the
incident, according to State
) Department spokesman Sean
McCormack.
U.S. troops sealed off the
building and the area.


"They killed
four people
today in one
cowardly act to
halt progress,
but it will only
harden the
determination
of this council,
the citizens of
Sadr City, the
Iraqi Army and
Coalition
Forces."


John Digiambatista

An official of the Iraqi Inte-
rior Ministry said six Iraqi civil-
ians were killed and 10 others
wounded. He spoke on condi-
tion of anonymity because he
wasn't authorized to release the
information.
The explosion occurred a day
after a gunman opened fire on
U.S. soldiers attending a munic-
ipal council meeting southeast
of Baghdad, killing two of them
and wounding three soldiers.
An interpreter was also killed.
U.S. military officers have
been working vigorously to
restore and promote local.
administrations amid a sharp
drop in attacks over the past
year, with the goal of preventing
areas from falling back under
the control of rival Sunni and
Shiite extremists.
Their increased presence in
local communities has made
them more vulnerable to
attacks, but Americarni:om-
manders have cited it as a nec-
essary factor in a strategy that
has helped drive down the lev-
els of violence to the lowest


point in more than four years.

cials said. At least six Iraqi civilians also died.


The U.S. military blamed
"special groups criminals," a
term it uses for Shiite militia-
men refusing to follow a cease-
fire order by anti-U.S. cleric
Muqtada al-Sadr.
"This was the fourth meeting
of this district council, led by
hardworking Iraqis determined
to make a difference and set
Sadr City off on the right path.

"They killed four people

The attack also targeted
Americans who were attending
a municipal council meeting in
Madain, also known as Salman
Pak, about 14 miles southeast
of Baghdad.
The assailant was believed to
be a former Sunni member of
the municipal council. He died
in a hail of gunfire after the
attack, which occurred in an
area with a history of Sunni-
Shiite tension.

Conflict with farmers takes toll on Argentina


By ALEXEI
BARRIONUEVO
ROSARIO, ARGENTINA
Country roads and highways
swelled with trucks bearing grains
and gasoline over the weekend, as
Argentina's farmers cleared the
highways after lifting their fourth
strike in three months, reports the
New York Times News Service.
While hope sprang eternal here
in Santa Fe province that food
rationing and gasoline shortages
would finally ease, the latest chap-
ter in the political drama began
playing out in Buenos Aires,
where the embattled president,
Cristina Fernandez de Kirchner,
met with farm leaders late Mon-
day.
Argentina's Congress is expect-
ed to begin a thorny debate this
week on an export tax, which
touched off the farmers' revolt
more than three months ago. In a
long-awaited concession, Kirch-
ner, her popularity plummeting
in opinion polls,,agreed last week
to let Congress approve or reject
the system of sliding taxes that
she imposed on farmers in March.
Yet even if Congress can
resolve the export tax dispute, the
conflict has already struck a deep
blow to Argentina's economy, its
international reputation as a
major food supplier and to the
psyche of its 40 million people.
"In just 100 days this has
become like another country,"
said Cristian Zarate, a farmer in
Armstrong, a town about an hour
from Rosario, Santa Fe's capital.
"Whatever happens now the
damage has already been done."
Argentines struggled last week
with mounting food shortages in
the provinces and with rationing
in Buenos Aires. Despite
attempts to block only trucks
hauling grains for export, truck-
ers, concerned about lost incoine,
mounted their own strikes earlier
this month, causing many mar-
kets to run low on food, widening
the political conflict.
"We are sick and tired of this,"
Mercedes Alzogaray said in dis-
gust last Thursday as she shopped
at a supermarket in Abasto, a
working-class Buenos Aires
neighborhood. "We can buy so
little meat, there is nothing, no
food these days."
Government signs in Buenos
Aires shops warned of "maxi-
Smum" quantities of food shop-
pers could purchase. The restric-
tions allowed Alzogaray to buy
only two packages of meat for


"In just 100
days this has
become like
another
country.
Whatever
happens now
the damage
has already
been done."

Cristian Zarate

her family, when she would nor-
mally buy six or seven, she said.
Food prices have shot up since
the farm strikes began, doubling
in some places, causing con-
sumers to react skittishly. At the
sprawling Central Market outside
of Buenos Aires where many of
the country's fruits and vegeta-
bles are distributed, food mar-
keter Javier Frazzetto, 30, said
business was down by half since
March. "People have a lot of
uncertainties about eating, about
spending on food," he said.
For many Argentines, the farm
crisis has stirred nightmarish
memories of the crushing eco-
nomic crisis of 2001, when the
value of the country's currency
plummeted in days, causing many
to go hungry.
Many Argentines, like Alzoga-
ray, believe that inflation is spin-
ning out of control.
"This has caused a vicious
cycle," said Dante Sica, director
of abeceb.com, an economic con-
sultancy in Buenos Aires. "Infla-
tionary expectations have risen
with a lot of people, and con-
sumption is slowing, especially in
the provinces."
Sica estimated that food prices
had risen 30 percent nationally
since last year, while overall infla-
tion was about 20 percent -
twice what the government has
claimed. h
In provinces like Santa Fe and
Cordoba, home to much of
Argentina's agricultural produc-
tion, grocery store shelves went
bare and factories slowed pro-
duction, a orders dried up.

TENTS set up by pro-government activists in support the government's export duty policies sit outside Congress in Buenos Aires at dawn, Tuesday,
June 24, 2008. Congress began debating the new grain export tax hike which led to over 100 days of conflict between farmers and the government.
Argentina's President Cristina Fernandez increased export taxes in early March by presidential decree. The sign at center reads in Spanish "Evita Move-
ment" referring to Maria Eva Duarte de Peron, wife of Argentina's former President Juan Domingo Peron, and the sign at right reads in Spanish "Per-
onist Youth."


An economy that grew annu-
ally by about 8 percent since 2003
is expected to cool now. Sica said
he was forecasting no more than
6.5 percent growth in 2008 and
even less in 2009. Some interna-
tional banks, among them Bar-
clays and JPMorgan Chase, have
also downgraded their growth
expectations for the country this
year.
Argentina also faces the chal-
lenge of convincing buyers of its
grains, especially in Asia, that it is
a reliable supplier. Nearly 60 ships
were waiting at Argentine ports
on Monday to finally receive soy-
beans and grains. Many had been
waiting to load for many days,
with delays costing as much as
$60,000 a day.
"Argentina is quickly losing its
appeal as a reliable supplier," said
Daniel W. Basse, the president
of AgResources, an agricultural
consultancy in Chicago.
Major international grain com-
panies like Cargill and Bunge


tried to stockpile grain after the
first strike, but they underesti-
mated the intensity of the con-
flict, Basse said. There have been
four strikes since fate March. The
volume of grains delivered by
trucks to ports in Santa Fe
Province in the past three months
is down 42 percent from last year,
said Patricia Bergero, the assis-
tant director of economic studies
at the Rosario Board of Trade.
Kirchner's approach to resolv-
ing the crisis has often been to
fan the flames of conflict. Last
week, just two days after tens of
thousands of people held antigov-
ernment protests throughout the
country, she attacked the leaders
of the four major farmer associa-
tions at her own rally in Buenos
Aires, dismissing them as "four
people whom nobody voted for."
She has previously referred to
them as "coup plotters."
The president made no refer-
ence to the owners of thousands
of small and medium-size farms

who have been at the heart of the
conflict over taxes that the farm-
ers claim have squeezed their
profit margins amid rising costs
for fertilizer and other supplies.
Kirchner met with farm lead-
ers late on Monday. In televised
remarks, Alberto Fernandez, the
cabinet chief, described the 90-
minute meeting as "positive" but
said the president declined to dis-
cuss the floating-rate export tax-
es, saying they were "in the hands
of Congress."


Farm leaders asked that the
taxes, which move with interna-
tional commodity prices, be tem-
porarily suspended while Con-
gress tackles the issue.
The president and her husband,
former President Nestor Kirchn-
er, who now heads the Front for
Victory wing of the Peronist par-
ty, have insisted that the export
taxes, or retenciones movies, are
necessary to help fund social pro-
grams for the poor and to help
stem inflation.

IENT Robert Mugabe greets people during his campaign rally in Banket, about 100 kilometres west of Harare, Tuesday, June 24,
opposition leader Morgan Tsvangirai was fleeing soldiers when he took refuge at the Dutch Embassy in Harare, an aide said Tues
of the first details on the latest twist in this southern African's country's political crisis.


* By NEIL MacFARQUHAR
and CELIA W. DUGGER
UNITED NATIONS

With Zimbabwe's opposition
under siege and its leader taking
refuge at the Dutch embassy,
the Security Council on Mon-
day issued its first sweeping con-
demnation of the violence grip-
ping the nation, saying it would
be "impossible for a free and
fair election to take place."
Zimbabwe has been reeling
from a widening campaign of
violence and intimidation ever
since Robert Mugabe, Zimbab-
we's president for nearly 30
years, came in second in the ini-
tial round of voting on March
29, reports the New York Times
News Service. On Sunday, only
five days before a runoff, Mor-
gan Tsvangirai, the opposition
standard-bearer, pulled out of
the race, citing the extensive
violence against his supporters.
Taking its first action on the
crisis, the long-divided Security
Council issued a one-page state-
Sment calling on the government
of Zimbabwe to allow opposi-
tion rallies, which had been rou-
tinely blocked or canceled, and
to free political prisoners.
"The Security Council regrets
that the campaign of violence
and the restrictions on the polit-
ical opposition have made it
impossible for a free and fair
election to take place on 27
June," said the statement.
Earlier in the day, the U.N.
secretary-general, Ban Ki-
moon, sharply condemned the
violence seizing the impover-
ished nation and took the
unusual step of calling for the
runoff to be postponed, saying a
vote under the current condi-
tions "would lack all legitima-
cy."
"It will only deepen divisions
within the country and produce
a result that cannot be credi-
ble," Ban said of the runoff,
adding that he had spoken with
"a number of African leaders"
and found a consensus that it
would be wrong to proceed with
one. "There has been too much
violence, too much intimida-
tion," he said.
As if to underscore the point,
Tsvangirai, who has survived
three assassination attempts,
sought safety, though not polit-
ical asylum, at the Dutch
embassy in Harare, Zimbabwe's
capital, on Sunday evening and
remained there on Monday,
Dutch officials said.
Tsvangirai's closest aide,
George Sibotshiwe, fled the
country in fear for his life on
Monday, and the police raided
the opposition party headquar-
ters, rounding up dozens of peo-
ple, including women, children
and those injured in the recent
political violence. Sibotshiwe
arrived in Johannesburg, and in
an interview shortly afterward,
he said he saw four men armed
with pistols approaching the
front door of his safe house on
Sunday morning and only nar-
rowly escaped capture.
The statement from the Secu-
rity Council went through sev-
eral drafts before it won the
required unanimous acceptance
of all 15 members. Britain led
an effort, dominated by the
West, to include the toughest
language, while South Africa
and allies including China and
Russia pushed to dilute it some-
what.
Mugabe, however, has shown
disdain for international criti-
cism, so it remained unclear
whether the Security Council's
statement would carry more
weight in prompting his gov-
ernment to relax its oppressive
measures than any previous
condemnations from foreign
leaders. Boniface G.


Chidyausiku, the U.N. ambas-
sador from Zimbabwe, said that
neither the statement from the
Security Council nor the call by
Ban to postpone the vote would
affect the timing of the el6c-
tions.
"The Security Council can-
not micromanage elections in
any particular country,"
Chidyausiku told reporters. "As
far as we are concerned, the
date has been set."
He accused Britain and its
allies of pushing for "regime
change" and said Tsvangirai's.
decision to drop out of the elec-
tion was a ploy to attract inter-
national sympathy. He also said
the opposition in.Zimbabwe
was exaggerating'the violence.
"These are MDC tricks that
should be seen for what they
are," he said in a speech, refer-
ring to the Movement for
Democratic Change. "The
British government's hidden
hand in all these political devel-
opments is evident and clearly
visible."
Sir John Sawers, the British
ambassador to the United
Nations, expressed astonish-
ment that Zimbabwe could so
readily dismiss the opinion of
the Security Council. "I find
that incredible," he told
reporters. "The actions of this
regime are unpredictable, and
they will pursue only those
courses of action which are in
their own self-serving interests."
Mugabe may also face
increasing pressure from his fel-
low heads of state in southern
Africa. Foreign ministers from a
regional bloc of 14 nations
known as the Southern African
Development Community met
on Monday in Angola to dis-
cuss the crisis.
* But the nations in the region
have long been divided on the
matter, and it is far from clear
they will find sufficient common
ground to act decisively. The
president of South Africa,
Thabo Mbeki, chosen by the 14-
nation bloc as mediator in the
Zimbabwean crisis, has main-
tained a strategy of quiet diplo-
macy, pushing for negotiations
between Zimbabwe's opposi-
tion and ruling parties, without
criticizing Mugabe publicly.


Mi .

*-' .
AN ELDERLY Zimbabwean woman reads President Robert Mugabe's
campaign material, at his rally in Banket about 100 kilometres west of
Harare, Tuesday, June 24,2008. Mugabe said that the run off election would
go ahead despite Morgan Tsvangirai's withdrawal ahead of an election on
the 27th of June.


In contrast, Botswana, Tan-
zania and Zambia have harshly
condemned the repeated deten-
tion of Zimbabwean opposition
leaders during the campaign, as
well as the violence against
opposition supporters.
Zambia's president, Levy
Patrick Mwanawasa, who heads
the bloc of nations that picked
Mbeki to mediate, complained
at a news conference on Sun-
day that his calls to Mbeki had
not been returned, and that he
did not know what Mbeki and
Mugabe were discussing.
"On Saturday, I tried to con-
tact Mr. Mbeki on phone, but
my efforts were futile because
South African authorities did
not ring me back as promised,"
the state-owned Zambian news-


paper, The Zambia Daily Mail,
quoted him as saying.
South Africa had resisted
efforts to bring Zimbabwe's
political woes before the Secu-
rity Council, contending that
they were a domestic matter,
not an international one.
On Monday, the wrangling
over the Council statement took
most of the day. Opponents of a
tougher stance by the Council
succeeded in quashing an
attempt to say that without a
second round of elections, Zim-
babwe should rely on the results
of the first round in March. In
that election, Tsvangirai won
more votes than Mugabe, but,
according to the official gov-
ernment count, less than the
majority needed to avoid a


runoff. The back-and-forth at
the Security Council reflected
the continuing debate over
whether electoral crises consti-
tute a threat to international
peace and security, the main
requirement for them to be tak-
en up by the Security Council.
The United States and others,
including Ban, hold that they
do, not least because of the
humanitarian crisis caused by
Zimbabwean government's
decision to bar aid organizations
from working in the country.
A paragraph expressing con-
cern on the "grave" humanitar-
ian situation and calling on Zim-
babwe to let them back in sailed
through all the drafts
unchanged.
Tsvangirai told a South
African radio station that his
party was prepared to negoti-
ate with ZANU-PF, Mugabe's
governing party, but said that
first the violence must stop.
Jendayi E. Frazer, the Amer-
ican assistant secretary of state
for African affairs, said in an
interview on Monday that
adding a mediator whom Tsvan-
girai trusts would be helpful,
but she noted that Mugabe has
voiced no interest in talks at this
point.
"It's going to require an inter-
national push to prevent a civil
war," she said.
Many opposition officials and
civic leaders in Zimbabwe fear
that the violence may well get
worse in coming days. The
country's only daily newspaper,
The Herald, a state-owned
mouthpiece for Mugabe, did
not even report on Monday that
Tsvangirai had withdrawn from
the contest.
Instead, it quoted Constan-
tine Chiwenga, the commander
of Zimbabwe's Defense Forces,
and who governing party insid-
ers say is a key actor in the cam-
paign of terror against the oppo-
sition, boasting that Mugabe
would romp to victory over
Tsvangirai, routinely depicted
in the state press as a lackey to
the British.
Both senior opposition party
officials and grass-roots workers
interviewed on Monday said
they believed they were on hit
lists, and many were on the run.


"I saw these guys coming for
me," said Sibotshiwe. the oppo-
sition official who fled to South
Africa.
He fled out the hack door
and kept running for more th;a
a mile before he took out his
cell phone to call for help.
Officials at the opposition's
headquarters in Harare said
they had received a tip thlt
there would be a raid on Mon-
day morning and most of the
1,500 people who had sought
refuge there from the violence
ran away. By the time a bus-
load of more than 30 riot police
officers arrived, only a few
dozen of the most helpless peo-
ple, many of them wounded.
were left. They were hustled
onto a bus and taken away.
opposition security officials said.
Police spokesman Wayne
Bvudzijena said 39 people had
been taken away only because
of unhygienic conditions.
explaining, according to the
South African Press Associa-
tion, "We are interested in the
health of these people."
But the police action
appeared more sinister to the
opposition. "T ias outside the
building," said a security offi-
cial who spoke anonymously
because of fears he would be
apprehended. "They're also
after my head. As I speak to
you, I'm planning to leave the
country tonight."

* By PAUL ALEXANDER
MANILA, Philippines
Divers wriggled into an
upside-down ferry yesterday
and found bodies but no sur-
vivors three days after the vessel
capsized during a powerful
typhoon with more than 800
people aboard, officials said,
according to the Associated
Press.
The bodies included what
appeared to be one of the ship's
officers still clutching a radio,
coast guard Commodore Luis
Tuason said, adding that two
bodies had been retrieved.
Hundreds of people are
feared to have been trapped
when the ship suddenly tilted
and went belly up Saturday at
the height of the powerful storm
that left 163 people dead in
flooded communities in the cen-
tral Philippines.
Philippines Navy spokesman
Lt. Col. Edgard Arevalo would
not speculate on whether any-
one might be found alive but
indicated the amount of time
passed made it unlikely. He said
the ship's interior was too dark
to determine how many bodies
were there and lighting was
being brought in.
"Most of the bodies were
floating inside. They were
trapped when the seven-storey
ship suddenly tilted and cap-
sized," he told dzBB radio.
Arevalo said it was possible
some passengers could have
survived initially, but the roiling
seas from Typhoon Fengshen
had kept rescuers at bay too
long and suffocation may have
claimed some lives.
He said some of the bodies
had life vests but many passen-
gers apparently hesitated to
jump into the "turbulent
waters" before the ship capsized


"If there are survivors, they
could only be found in the
forward portion, because if the
vessel is no longer watertight,
water would enter all its
spaces that are submerged."

Lt. Col. Edgard Arevalo


because "it happened too sud-
den." Survivors said the ship
listed and went down in a half-
hour or less.
"If there are survivors, they
could only be found in the for-
ward portion, because if the ves-
sel is no longer watertight, water
would enter all its spaces that
are submerged," Arevalo said.
Coast guard chief Adm. Wil-
fredo Tamayo said about 20
coast guard and navy divers
were at the scene and that the
U.S. Navy ship Stoqkham had
arrived with frogmen and
search-and-rescue helicopters.
He said the divers had bro-
ken windows and used every
other gap they could find to slip
inside the 23,824-ton Princess
of Stars, which has only one end
jutting from the water off
Sibuyan island.
Arevalo said the priority now
is how to extricate the bodies.
He said options include attach-
ing weights to them and then
pulling them out, or cutting the
hull a prospect complicated
by a cargo of bunker oil that
could leak and turn the human
disaster into an environmental
one. On Sunday, divers heard
no response when they ham-
mered on the hull, but officials
had refused to give up. Only


about three dozen ferry sur-
vivors have been found, includ-
ing 28 who drifted at sea for
more than 24 hours, first in a
life raft, then in life jackets,
before they were found Sunday
about 80 miles to the north in
eastern Quezon province. Offi-
cials inhiallyreported 747 pas-
sengers and crew were aboard
the ferry, but said Monday that
it was carrying about 100 more.
Six bodies, including those of
a man and woman who had
bound themselves together,
have washed ashore, along with
children's slippers and life jack-
ets.
While some relatives tearful-
ly waited for news, others angri-
ly questioned why the ship was
allowed to leave Manila late Fri-
day for a 20-hour trip to Cebu
with a typhoon approaching.
Sulpicio Lines said it sailed
with coast guard approval. The
government ordered the com-
pany to suspend services pend-
ing an investigation and a check
of its other ships' seaworthiness.
Debate also began anew on
safe-sailing rules in a country
prone to storms Fengshen
was the seventh typhoon this
year and dependent on fer-
ries to get around the sprawl-
ing archipelago.

A PARTNERSHIP


FOR THE FUTURE


OF THE BAHAMAS.



,' i ; /, The vision is to revitalize Cable
Beach by creating a world-class resort destination.

From the renovations to the Wyndham Nassau
Resort and the Sheraton Cable Beach Resort
to the development of Baha Mar, local culture
and the natural landscapes are the inspiration.
Preservation of these indigenous resources remains
paramount. It is, after all, this beauty that makes
visiting the islands of The Bahamas a dream for so
many around the world.

Baha Mar will attract travelers from around the world
who will explore and discover why Bahamians are so
proud to call these islands home. And they'll bring
with them a.desire for adventure and the steady
source of tax and tourism revenue which sustains
and grows the Bahamian economy.

To ensure an exciting and bright future for generations
to come, let us work together to continue the
transformation of Cable Beach and realize the
Baha Mar vision.

BAHA MAR. GOOD FOR THE BAHAMAS.
EVEN BETTER FOR BAHAMIANS.

IN A TUESDAY, April 1, 2008 file photo, the new U.S.-Mexico
border fence, right, stands near the old fence on the outskirts
Nogales, Mexico. The Supreme Court on Monday, June 23,
2008, turned down a plea by environmental groups to rein in
the Bush administration's powerto waive laws and regulations
to speed construction of a fence along the U.S.-Mexican border.


* McALLEN, Texas
A U.S. Supreme Court deci-
sion paving the way for a 670-
mile federal fence along the
U.S.-Mexico border drew swift
criticism from environmental-
ists, who promised to make
another legal stand in Texas,
according to the Associated
Press.
The justices' turned:down a
plea Monday to hear a lawsuit
opposing a two-mile section of
the fence in Arizona brought
by the Sierra Club and Defend-
ers of Wildlife.
The section of fence in ques-
tion in that case has already
been built and even if the court
had taken the case, oral argu-
ments would not have been
heard until October.
But Monday's decision could
have the most immediate impli-
cations for Texas, where oppo-
sition has been most wide-
spread and fence construction
is expected to begin.next
month.
The Audubon Society has
already said that if the fence is
built as planned in South Texas


it would have to close its 557-
acre Sabal Palm Audubon
Center near Brownsville. The
center would be left entirely in
the no man's land behind the
fence north of the Rio Grande.
The Nature Conservancy's
Lennox Foundation Southmost
Preserve also would be affect-
ed, as would portions of the
90,000-acre Lower Rio Grande
Valley National Wildlife
Refuge, assembled over
decades along the river to pro-
tect one of the most biologi-
cally diverse ecosystems in the
country.
"We were all pinning a.lot
of hope on something happen-
ing atithe Supreme Court lev-
el," said Merriewood Fergu-
son, a Brownsville environ-
mentalist who has spent 25
years working to protect habi-
tat near the river. "We're not
giving up hope, there's just too
much at stake."
The case rejected by. the high
court Monday involved a two-
mile section of fence in the San
Pedro Riparian National Con-
servation Area near Naco,
Ariz.

Trial In alleged
member of a
swingers club
is postponed
* DALLAS
THE THIRD trial of an
alleged member of a swingers
club accused of forcing chil-
dren into sbx shows was post-
poned Monday amid allega-
tions that the foster father to
the young victims molested
other children, according to
the Associated Press.
Prosecutors said the Cali-
fornia child sex charges against
John Cantrell, who has cus-
tody of three siblings who
allegedly performed inside the
club, has nothing to do with
their case in Texas.
Cantrell, 64, was charged
last week with sexually assault-
ing two of his foster children in
1990. His wife has denied the
allegations.
Margie Cantrell first told
authorities in 2005 about what
the children now ages 12,
10, and 7 revealed to her
about having being forced into
sex at the former daycare.
"What does the fact that he
was investigated 18 years ago,
when the victims in our case
were not even alive, have to
do with the guilt or innocence
of these defendants on trial
today?" Smith County District
Attorney Matt Bingham said.
State District Judge Jack
Skeen Jr. pushed back the
start of the trial of Patrick Kel-
ly until June 30, granting a
request by Kelly's attorneys
to allow tinm to investigate
the charges against John
Cantrell.
Texas Child Protective Ser-
vices has temporarily forbid-
den the foster parent to see
the children. Cantrell is await-
ing extradition.
Kelly, 41, is the third alleged
member of the so-called
"Mineola Swingers Club" to
stand trial. He and five others
are accused of teaching chil-
dren as young as 5 to have sex
with each other and dance
provocatively for crowds.as
large as 100 people.

ABACOMRETS

Chairman's Report Q1, 2008

Report to Shareholders
We are pleased to report on our results and sales-building initiatives of the first quarter of 2008. As yon will
note in the accompanying financial, our sales growth continues with an increase of 7% for the first quarter over
the prior year. Our first quarter results, however, also reflect the difficult challenges of rising costs facing all
businesses today. Utilities alone increased $261k over the sane period the prior year along with many other
related costs. In addition, we faced isolated challenges with shrink which also negatively impacted our results.
In anticipation of the economic challenges and in addressing the shrink issues, we have focused our strategic
profitability plan on group sales, cost reduction measures and a comprehensive shrink reduction programme.
While our Company faces price increases in products, labour and services, we consider it our responsibility to
minimize that impact of these increases on our customers as much as possible and, as a result, we are address-
ing every measure we can influence particularly in our buying and with our controllable costs. We have real-
located capital expenditures to energy conservation measures and have implemented an energy conservation
programme among staff to manage the energy challenges and the rising utility costs. Finally, as a part of our
strategic profitability plan to address the shrink challenges, we have appointed a Vice President of Loss
Prevention and Asset Protection to focus entirely on shrink reduction. We are confident that these measures will
allow us to more effectively manage our inventory in the short tern.
While the increased costs and shrink negatively impacted our first quarter results, both the sales increase and
sales-building initiatives of the first quarter are driving our profitability plan. During the quarter, we opened our
9th Domino's location on Carnichael Road with positive results and work for our 10th Domino's location in Sea
Grape's Shopping Plaza, Nassau, has begun. In addition, the Company finalised the purchase of the building
now used by Solomon's Freeport which will be financed by a Royal Bank of Canada loan. The purchase, val-
ued at $3m to $3.25m for the building and property, allows for a revaluation surplus and provides for an increase
in equity of $600k for the group.
We are very pleased with the confidence demonstrated by the bank as these initiatives add to our platform for
growth. Our strategic profitability plan allows us to focus on the opportunities ahead while managing the chal-
lenges that we expect to face over the coming months due to the current economic conditions. While we expect
improvement in the second quarter, we still expect to see it lag behind the prior year due tothe external factors
we are up against. However, we are confident that we are in the right place at the right time to implement the
appropriate measures to both weather these challenges and provide our customers with quality value options
they can count on.
We look forward to keeping you posted on our progress and we thank you for your support.

o In brief

Britain

removes Iran

opposition

group from

terror list

LONDON
BRITISH lawmakers for-
mally removed an Iranian
opposition group from the
U.K.'s list of banned terror
groups on Monday, after a
seven-year campaign by the
organization, according to the
Associated Press.
Legislators approved the
decision of the Court of
Appeal, which ruled in May
that the People's Mujahedeen
of Iran should no longer be
listed as a proscribed group.
The decision gives the
group more freedom to orga-
nize and raise money in
Britain.
"After so many years of
waiting, so many years of
campaigning, so many set-
backs and frustrations, at
last our government has
seen the light," said
Baroness Angela Harris, a
House of Lords peer who
backed the move.
The PMOI is considered
a terrorist organization in
the U.S. and European
Union. The group's British
backers say it no longer
engages in any kind of
armed struggle
Leaders of the group have
been fighting to shed its ter-
rorist tag after a series of
bloody anti-Western attacks
in the 1970s and nearly
30 years of violent struggle
against the Iranian theo-
cratic regime.
The group moved to Iraq
in the early 1980s and it
fought Iran's Islamic rulers
from there until the United
S States invaded in 2003.
American troops have.since
disarmed thousands of
PMOI members.
British Home Office min-
ister Tony McNulty said on
Monday that the govern-
ment had unsuccessfully
appealed against the Court
of Appeal's decision because
of the group's violent past.

A QUICK-MOVING wildfire sends plumes of smoke into the air in Santa Cruz County, Calif. on Wednesday, June 11, 2008. The fire is expected to expand forcing hundreds to evac-
uate areas in the Santa Cruz Mountains. A second day of hot, dry winds kicked up new fires across the Bay Area and Northern California.

Sold IIncu


* SAN FRANCISCO

MORE THAN 840 wild-
fires sparked by an "unprece-
dented" lightning storm are
burning across Northern Cal-
ifornia, alarming the governor
and requiring the help of fire-
fighters from Nevada and
Oregon, according to the
Associated Press.
Gov. Arnold Schwarzeneg-
ger said he was told late Sun-
day evening that the state had
520 fires, and he found it
"quite shocking" that by Mon-
day morning the number had
risen above 700.
Moments later, a top state
fire official standing at
Schwarzenegger's side offered
a grim update. The figure was
actually 842 fires, said Del
Walters, assistant regional
chief of the California Depart-
ment of Forestry and Fire Pro-
tection. All but a couple were
in the northern part of the
state.
"This is an unprecedented
lightning storm in California,
that it lasted as long as it did,
5,000 to 6,000 lightning
strikes," Walters said. "We are
finding fires all the time."

Charred

Two of the state's biggest
fires had each charred nearly 6
square miles. One in Napa
County quickly moved into
Solano County, and threat-
ened about 250 homes about
40 miles southwest of Sacra-
mento, said Kevin Colburn, a
spokesman for the California
Department of Forestry and
Fire Protection. It was 60 per-
cent contained.
The other, in the Shasta-
Trinity National Forest about
160 miles north of Sacramen-
to, threatened about 1,200
homes.
Out-of-state assistance,
mostly firefighting aircraft,
arrived from Nevada and Ore-
gon in response to weekend
requests. Schwarzenegger said
he had enlisted the help
"because you can never pre-


pare for 500 or 700 or 800 fires
all at the same time."
Part of the reason for the
swelling number of wildfires
was that local and state offi-
cials were still counting after
fierce thunderstorms Friday
night touched off the blazes.
"We didn't get real lucky
with this lighting storm," Wal-
ters said.
"It wasn't predicted -
which often happens with
these storms that come in off
the Pacific, there's no history
of the weather as it approach-
es the shore and so we got
hammered."
In Mendocino County alone
there were 110 fires, with just
17 contained.
Along the coast in Los
Padres National Forest, a
2,000-acre. wildfire burning
south of Big Sur since Satur-
day forced the evacuations of
75 homes and businesses,
destroyed one house and
threatened hundreds of oth-
ers.
It also led to an emergency
airlift Sunday of eight endan-
gered California condors. U.S.
Coast Guard helicopters trans-
ported the seven juveniles and
one adult bird from a wildlife
center to the Monterey Air-
port.
A second fire in Los Padres
burned more than 57,000 acres
and has injured nine firefight-
ers.
In New Mexico, crews
dropped 11,500 chemical balls
injected with antifreeze to try
to ignite unburned vegetation
and halt a blaze that has
charred more than 49,000
acres, largely on grazing allot-
ments on federal land.
Lightning sparked the fire
Tuesday in the Lincoln
National Forest about 20 miles
southwest of Hope.
It was not threatening any
structures.
"The ranchers have already
moved a lot of the cattle that
were out there," U.S. Forest
Service fire information officer
Deanna Younger said. The
grazing areas "will be the main
loss," she said.

Sudoku Puzzle
Sudoku is a number-placing puzzle based on a 9x9 grid with
several given numbers. The object is to place the numbers 1 to
9 in the empty squares so the each row, each column and each
3x3 box contains the same number only once. The difficulty
level of the Conceptis Sudoku increases from Monday to
Sunday


Difficulty Level * 6/26


Kakuro Puzzle


Best described as a number crossword, the task in Kakuro is to
fill all of the empty squares, using numbers 1 to 9, so the sum of
each horizontal block equals the number to its left, and the sum
of each vertical block equals the number on its top. No number
may be used in the same block more than once. The difficulty
level of the Conceptis Kakuro increases from Monday to Sunday.

each suit. He does not know where
the king of spades and queen of dia-
monds are located, but he is aware
that if East has either of these cards,
the contract can be made via a suc-
cessful finesse in either suit.
But there is no urgency about tak-
ing either finesse, so at trick three
South leads a low club to the king.
When this loses to the ace, declarer
obtains vital information not previ-
ously available. East's possession of
the ace of clubs vastly increases the
chance that West who opened the
bidding has both missing key
cards. The spade and diamond
finesses, if attempted, are therefore
very likely to lose.
East returns the queen of hearts
at trick four and South ruffs. Acting
on the information he has gained,
declare cashes the ace of trumps,
spurning the finesse, and continues
with the queen of clubs and a club
ruiT. He then plays a trump, saddling
West with the lead.
West has no safe return. A heart
lead yields a ruff-and-discard, while
a diamond lead goes into declarer's
A-J, so the contract is home.
Note that if South attempts either
finesse, he goes down. The'bidding
and the early play tell him that a
finesse is the wrong weapon to use in
this deal, and he adapts his play'
accordingly.

The finesse is an extremely valu-

The aim of a finesse is to gain a trick

* WINFIELD, Mo.
AS TOWNS upriver watched
the Mississippi River slowly
begin to recede, a few farther
south focused on holding on for
a few more days furiously fill-
ing sandbags and keeping watch
over saturated levees struggling
to hold back the flooded river,
according to Associated Press.
SBut there's an end within
sight: Forecasters expect the last
stretch of the bloated river to
crest later this week.
* "The spirits are tired, but they
are still there and still solid,"
said Jo Anne Smiley, mayor of
Clarksville, where makeshift
sandbag levees are keeping the
city's small downtown dry. "This
is a community that will rise
above this."
Smiley toured her town Mon-
day with Gen. Robert Van
Antwerp, the U.S. Army Corps
of Engineers' chief of engineers.
He said he was most concerned
about agricultural levees up and
down the river.
"I think what they have is hold-
ing well," Van Antwerp said.
"Now,.it's'a matter of getting the
water off of it."
Elsewhere, however, the water
was too much for yet another lev-
ee early Tuesday. Two gaps
opened up in the saturated Elm
Point levee at St. Charles, Mo.,
about 30 miles north of St. Louis,
allowing water to flood hundreds
of acres of agricultural land. A
mobile home park where about
700 people live had already been
evacuated.
The constant pressure of the
river 'remains the primary con-
cern in Lincoln County, where
officials asked for volunteers
Monday to help fill 50,000 sand-
bags to fortify the 2 1/2-mile-long
Pin Oak levee, an earthen berm
that was so waterlogged that it
was like "walking on a waterbed,"


said county emergency manage-
ment spokesman Andy Binder.
Federal officials said they
couldn't be sure it would sur-
vive through the river's crest at
Winfield later in the week.
"They have a serious condi-
tion on their hands," said Travis
Tutka, the Army Corps' chief of
dam safety. "This will be quite a
test of that levee."
If it breaches, the river will
swamp 100 homes in east Win-
field, as well as 3,000 acres of
farm fields, several businesses
and a city ballpark. A muskrat
that burrowed a hole in the soft
ground released a geyser of
water, and officials said it took
nearly six hours Monday to
choke off the leak.
"There is no guarantee of per-
formance, but we're fighting the
good fight," Tutka said.
Only a handful of residents
remained in east Winfield on
Monday, after emergency workers
went door to door urging them to
evacuate.
Among the holdouts was Sher-
man Jones, 56, who was all alone
in his house except for his dogs,
Mugsy and Junior.
"There is no place to go but the
high school. I am not going to
leave 'til.my feet are wet," Jones
said. "It's been a rough year, but
we'll get through it."
In Foley, north of .Winfield,
floodwaters late Monday were fill-
ing the higher part of town. The.
east side of Foley was already sub-
merged.
Not far from the Iowa state
line, the river was down a few
inches at Canton after cresting
Sunday at 27.feet less than ad-
foot short of the record set during
the Great Flood of 1993. Jeff
McReynolds, the city's emergency
management director, said a vol-
untary evacuation request
remained in place in the town of
roughly 2,500.

Ansbacher for sale


* By NEIL HARTNELL
Tribune Business Editor
ANSBACHER (Bahamas),
the major Nassau-based finan-
cial institution, is up for sale
with buyers, actively being
sought, multiple financial ser-
vices industry sources confirmed
to Tribune Business yesterday.
.One source familiar with the
situation told this newspaper
yesterday: "Ansbacher
(Bahamas) is definitely on the


market. The sale is pending.
"But we don't know if it is
just the Bahamian operation
that is for sale, whether the
whole Ansbacher entity world-
wide is on the market, or
whether they are preparing to
sell-off different units to indi-
vidual buyers."
It is unclear how far advanced
attempts to sell Ansbacher
(Bahamas) are, whether a buy-.
er has been selected, and the
identity of any buyer.

.One source suggested that
Ansbacher (Bahamas) senior
executives were looking to put
together a management buy-out
of the longstanding Nassau
institution, although this could
not be confirmed before press
time.
Tribune Business was told
that Michael Mayhew-Arnold,
Ansbacher (Bahamas) manag-
ing director, was out of office
when it called seeking comment
on the sale yesterday afternoon.
However, a staff member in
his office, when told by Tribune
Business that the call was relat-
ed to this newspaper's under-
standing that Ansbacher
(Bahamas) was up for sale, con-
firmed: "Yes, it is."
Other Bahamian financial
services industry sources also
confirmed that Ansbacher
(Bahamas) was up for sale
when contacted by Tribune
Business yesterday,.suggesting
that the situation was becom-
ing something of an open secret
in the sector.
SThe wider Ansbacher group,
which specialises in providing
private wealth management,


estate planning and securities
services for high-net worth
Clients, has already undergone
one acquisition within the last
five years.
The group, including the
Bahamas unit, was acquired
from its former South African
parent, First Rand, by Qatar
National Bank (QNB) in 2004
for an undisclosed sum.
It is uncertain why the
Qataris would want to exit at
least part of their investment so
rapidly within four years -
although some have suggested
that they want to exit the
Bahamas and Caribbean region,
At the time of the QNB
acquisition, Ansbacher had
offices in the Bahamas, Cayman
Islands, Monaco, the Channel
Islands, Switzerland and the
UK.
Ansbacher (Bahamas) Has
been based in the Bahamas
since 1957, having undergone
several name changes since, and
currently employs between 50-
60 persons. It is one of the
major brand names and play-
ers in this nation's financial ser-
vices industry.

LNG plan to save BEC



$80-120m per annum


* By NEIL HARTNELL
Tribune Business Editor
THE company proposing to
construct a liquefied natural
gas (LNG) terminal in the
Bahamas said yesterday it
would save the Bahamas Elec-
tricity Corporation (BEC)
between $80 million-$210 mil-
lion per year by building a
pipeline to New Providence to
supply it with its product.
Aaroq Samson, AES Cor-
poration's LNG managing
director, and project manager
for its Ocean Cay project in
the Bahamas, said the compa-
ny would "displace 100 per
cent of the diesel fuel" that
BEC currently uses to drive its


AES plans Nassau
pipeline to 'displace'
100% of diesel oil used
for electric generation,
with supply scheme
to cost 50% less

New Providence turbines and
power stations.
Paying for AES's LNG, Mr
Samson added, would cost
BEC 50 per cent of what the
Corporation pays for its diesel
fuel today, a saving that could

idential and business cus-

tomers.
"In response to the current
energy situation, the Govern-
ment has pushed AES to find
direct energy benefits for
Bahamians.," Mr Samson said.
"Advancements in sub-sea
pipeline technology have now
allowed AES to commit to
build a natural gas pipeline to
New Providence to displace
100 per cent of the diesel.fuel
BEC consumes on New Provi-
dence.
"The BEC combustion tur-


bines at the Blue Hills Power
Station can easily be converted
to burn either natural gas or
diesel and, when burning nat-
ural gas, their reliability will
increase and the maintenance
costs will be less. The NOx and
sulfur emissions will be
reduced dramatically, along
With at least a 25 per cent
decrease in greenhouse gas
emissions. Less maintenance,
more reliable with less envi-
ronmental impact and, at cur-
rent market prices, LNG will
cost BEC.only 50 per cent of
what they pay for diesel fuel
today."
Mr Samson said the AES
initiative "will save BEC
between $80 and $210 million
per year, while improving the
reliability of their generation
equipment and improving the
environment.
"This would mean a major
savings to all BEC consumers,
cutting costs for homeowners,
businesses, manufacturing and
the tourist industry. Addi-
tionally, this moves the
Bahamas forward in the world
of clean energy generation,
reducing its global carbon foot-
print significantly."

The insurer is currently
inputting data into both sys-
tems to ensure they are "bal-
anced", with matching premi-
ums and accounts on both sys-
tems. The IT system is due to
go live by year-end.
"It allows a more seamless
data transfer between the
agencies and ourselves," Mr
Watson said o' the new IT sys-
tem.
He added that if RoyalStar's
agents chose to use the new
system, there would be less
paperwork for them to do in
relation to client policies, with
the transfer of data between
the agencies and the carrier
also speeded up.
Mr Watson said the Novem-
ber 14, 2007, decision by Roy-
alStar's Board to authorise an
increase in.the company's


share capital by $5 million,
from $8 million to $13 million,
was designed to give the insur-
er financial flexibility should
it need to "respond very quick-
ly" to future events. .
RoyalStar's directors autho-
rised the creation of an extra
500,000 preference shares, with
a $10 per share par value, but
Mr Watson said the company
had no intention of issuing
these to raise capital immi-
nently.
Flexible
"It was only done as a way
to make us more flexible," Mr
Watson told The Tribune.
"We've no intention of using
that in the foreseeable future.
It was done to give us an
opportunity to respond in the
future if we need to.
"If there was a need for it,
and something came along,

like we wanted to do an acqui-
sition, it gives us the opportu-
nity to respond very quickly."
He pointed out that further
increasing RoyalStar's share
capital would make it harder
for the firm to match 2007's 27
per cent return on equity.
Mr Watson added that Roy-
alStar was likely to be at least
12-18 months away from mov-
ing into its potential new head-
quarters, the former Caribbean
Bottling Company (Coca-Cola
franchise) Warehouse on JFK
Drive. A joint venture between
itself and an affiliate, Sunshine
Holdings, had agreed the prop-
erty's $3 million purchase with
BISX-listed Premier Real
Estate Investment Corpora-
tion.
Among the main challenges
facing the Bahamian general
insurance industry in 2008 was


the overall economy's condi-
tion, Mr Watson, which could
impact people's ability to pay
their insurance premiums and
also lead to a rise in accounts
receivables.
Price
In addition, given the down-
turn and price corrections
experienced in the Bahamian
equities market thus far in
2008, the bumper investment
income year that insurance
companies enjoyed in 2007 was
unlikely to be repeated.
Although generating an
underwriting profit'is key,
investment income allows
Bahamian general insurers to
mitigate the risk in their main
business, smoothing out earn-
ings volatility, especially in hur-
ricane years.

Abaco Markets profitsB.tAirl




1 hi '0f (om7 rnmnar'ti17P


Abaco Markets, the BISX-
listed retail group, yesterday
announced 2008 first quarter
profits that were less than one
quarter of the prior year's earn-
ings from continuing operations,
as a 7 per cent sales increase
was overshadowed by a
$261,000 year-on-year utility bill
rise.
The Solomon's SuperCentre,
Cost Right and Domino's Pizza
operator said net profits for the
three months to April 30, 2008,
dropped to $82,000, compared
to the $353,000 earned from
continuing operations in the
2007 first quarter.
Abaco Markets added that
the 2007 comparative period's


net income of
$766,000 had
been boosted
by a $150,000
gain on the :
sale of its 10 o
per cent stake
in BSL Hold-
ings, the
majority own-
er of Bahamas
Supermarkets,
and $387,000
in write-backs
achieved from the sale of Cost
Right's Turks & Caicos outlet.
The BISX-listed retail group's
sales rbse by 7 per cent year-
on-year, but the utility bill
increase coupled with an


I -, B ~ 18~kl l& s s
(I I i~llsB~r st a re 11


increase in shrinkage at the per-
ishables department in its
Solomon's SuperCentre store
in Nassau negatively impacted
its expenses and gross margins.
Gross margins decreased
from 29.5 per cent in the 2007
first quarter to 29.1 per cent this
time around, while expenses as
a percentage of sales increased
from 27.2 per cent to 28 per cent
year-over-year.
Gavin Watchorn, Abaco
Markets president, said: "Our
first quarter results reflect the
difficult challenges of rising
costs facing all businesses today.
Utilities alone increased
$261,000 over the same period
the prior year, along with many
other related costs. In addition,
we also faced challenges with
shrink in our perishables
department at Solomon's
SuperCenter in Nassau during
the first quarter, which also neg-
atively impacted our results."
To cope with rising costs and
shrinkage issues, Abaco Mar-
kets said it was focusing on
group sales, cost reduction mea-
sures and a shrinkage reduction
programme.
"We are pleased with the
confidence our increased sales
reflect, as we continue the focus
on maintaining our position in
providing our customers with a
real, every day value they can
count on particularly during
these times," said Mr Watchorn.
"Certainly, we all know that
prices are increasing every-
where. We have seen dramatic
increases across the board,
which will inevitably affect our
consumers. However, we con-
sider it our responsibility to
minimise that impact as much as
possible and, as a result, we are
addressing every measure we
can influence particularly in
our buying and with our con-
trollable costs."
Abaco Markets also
announced it had finalised the
purchase of the Solomon's
SuperCentre building in


Freeport for $2.2 million, with
total costs of $2.4 million. Some
$2 million of the purchase price
will be financed by a Royal
Bank of Canada loan repayable
over five years.
The purchase, valued at
between $3-$3.25 million for the
building and property, will
increase Abaco Markets' equity
by $600,000 and allows for a
revaluation surplus.
"We are moving ahead with
our sales-building programmes
to maintain our stability and
improve our profitability as we
manage the internal, local and
global economic challenges,"
said Mr Watchorn.
Craig Symonette, Abaco
Markets chairman and chief
executive, said: "While we
expect improvement.in the sec-
ond quarter, we still.expect to
see it lag behind the prior year
due to the external factors we
are up against."

profit on diesel decreased from
11.66 per cent to 3.1 per cent,
while the business license fees
increased by 276.07 per. cent,"
the Association said.
At the moment, the Govern-
ment fixes retail margins at
$0.44 per gallon on unleaded
gasoline, and $0.19 per gallon
on diesel. The $0.44 mark up is
the same as it was when fuel
was $2.80 per gallon in 2002,
and the Association said oper-
ating costs especially electric-
ity costs have skyrocketed by
anywhere from 30 per cent to
100 per cent.


Meda .l

A gri


The Association's members
said they were ignored in the
2008-2009 Budget as it related
to tax breaks, despite the fact
they provide what is really "a
bread basket item for Bahami-
ans.
"We want some relief. We
need relief, and we need the
Government to extend an olive
branch," Charles Johnson, the
Association's chairman, said.
According to the Association,
the recent surge in fuel prices,
coupled with the unchanging
margins, has forced gas station
operators into a situation where
it was virtually impossible for
them to survive.
Its members said that almost
75 per cent of gas stations are


operating at close to unprof-
itable levels, saved only by the
sales they make in their conve-
nience stores. The situation is
so bad that many said that even
if they were offered the chance
to buy their service stations
from the oil companies, they
would not because there is no
way to be profitable.
Several Association mem-
bers told Tribune Business they
wanted the Government to pro-
vide some tax relief from the
burdens they face from fixed
margins, increased operating
costs and the skyrocketing busi-
ness license fees.
They said that just as the
Government offered BEC a
tax holiday to help it ride out
the global oil price storm, and
offered other concessions to
stimulate the economy, the
Government needed to assist
them with being able to operate
with their heads above water.
"Changing the diesel margins
and changing the business
license fees are two things they
could do tomorrow that would
help us. It would help us sup-
port our employees" they said.
According to member Fred-
die Russell, at least one gas sta-
tion owner, who owned a sta-
tion at the corner of Blue Hill
Road and Harrold Road, has
recentlyclosed down, leaving
more than 30 employees job-
less.
"You have to look at it like
this. When a gas station has to
close, that is people without a
job, and the retailer has no
money to give them their bene-
fits and he has vendors he owes
that he cannot afford to pay.
That has a major effect on the
overall economy," Mr Russell
said.

'undermines' Bahamas US trade


This was because the Most
Favoured Nation (MFN) pro-
visions of any free trade agree-
ment automatically required
the Bahamas to offer to one
country the same benefits and
preferences it had given to
another,.
With the EPA now poten-
tially forming the 'baseline' for
all other trade agreements the
Bahamas will negotiate, this
country will be compelled to
offer the same trade benefits to
the US as it has done the EU.
This means, Mr Moree said,
that the Bahamas will have to
offer the US at least the same
terms on services, investments,
e-commerce, competition pol-
icy and government procure-
ment and intellectual property
rights as has given the Euro-

peans when, if it had signed a
'goods only' EPA, all these
areas could have been left 'off
the table' in negotiations with
Washington.
In doing so, this would have
reduced the amount of legisla-
tive, policy and economic
reform the Bahamas will be
required to undertake.
"Do you think, when the
Americans negotiate with us,
that they will accept a position
where they gave us a one-way
street to access their market,
while we give the EU a two-
way street by signing a full
EPA," Mr Moree asked.
"To a large extent, the mar-
ket access aspects [of the EPA]
are fully reciprocal, access to
the EU markets, and their
access to our markets.'
"What this means is that
CBI is over. It's difficult to see
how CBI can be maintained
for any length of time. We are
now handcuffing our negotia-
tors as we go into these [CBI]
negotiations over the next few


years."
The McKinney, Bancroft &
Hughes senior partner pointed
out that Stephen Lande, a US
trade consultant who previ-
ously had responsibility for the
CBI when at the US Trade
Representative's Office, had
publicly warned that CARI-
COM and the Bahamas could
sacrifice their existing one-way
preferential access to the US
market by signing the EPA
with the EU.
Mr Moree, arguing that the
Bahamas should have first
focused on cementing its trade
relationship with the US, as its
main trading partner, and
accession to full WTO mem-
bership, rather than the EPA,
said some 30,000 Americans
lived in the Bahamas.
Some 110 US-based compa-
nies operated in the Bahamas,
and 85 per cent of our annual
visitors came from the US.
Turning to trade statistics to
highlight' what he suggested
was the wrong order in which

to negotiate these trade agree-
ments, Mr Moree said that in
2006 some 67 per cent of
$452.8 million in total Bahami-
an exports chiefly rum, craw-
fish, salt and styrofoam prod-
ucts went to the US.
This compared to just the
18.3 per cent of exports that
went to the EU, and 5.1 per
cent to Canada. On the import
side, the Bahamas in 2005
sourced 84.7 per cent of its
total $2.52 billion in imports
from the US, compared to just
the 1.2 per cent sourced from
the EU.
On the EPA, Mr Moree
added: "It will make it impos-
sible for us to continue the uni-
lateral preferences with the
US.
"From our point of view, the
EPA is a pretty generous base-
line. We didn't have to go into
any of these areas. If the idea
was that we were going to give
the US EPA-plus, that's what
we're going to give them.
"We want to square away


our most important trading
relationship first. That we have
failed to do, and I think that is
unfortunately going to preju-
dice us."
For 2006, some $93.609 mil-
lion worth of Bahamian
exports entered the US duty-
free under the CBI initiative,
an amount that increased to
$100.97 million in the first nine
months of 2007.
The CBI is itself coming
under pressure at the WTO for
being a one-way preference
regime that offers benefits to
Caribbean countries, but no
others, thus making it discrim-
inatory.
The WTO waiver for the
CBI expires in September
2008. While Congressman
Charles Rangel, appears likely
to get the US Congress to
extend the programme for two
years until 2010,.it remains to
be seen whether opposition at
.the WTO from the likes of
Paraguay will prevent a waiver
extension.

Pearl Death Notice


For

Mr. David Paul
Kupsak, 68
of #16450 Tia Court Brookfield, Wisconsin
passed from his earthly to eternal travels at
the Blue Water Resort, Cable Beach Nassau
N. P. Bahamas on Sunday, June 22, 2008.
He was born at Milwaukee, Wisconsin on
Monday, June 17, 1940.


I IDave was from the United States, but he may
___ well as been a native Bahamian. He loved the
Bahamas like a native. He came here first in
1961, and was hooked. Since then he and his entire family have been coming
back to the island, at least once a year with each year adding more grand
children.
Some of the events enjoyed by the family have been an engagement, a baby's
conception here and one grand sons wedding on the beach!
The Ministry of Tourism featured the family in two of the local papers, and did
a story with photos on the wedding. Dave came at least three times a year, and
served on the board of Guanahani Village, now {Blue Water Resort} for many
years, with almost daily phone calls and emails to the Bahamas as a part of his
life. He diligently followed the local papers, and loved this Island ashis home.
He died here in the land of his heart.
Nassau will not be the same for us, but we hope to honor his
memory with future trips, and remember the precious memories
here that he helped us create. He will be greatly missed.
He is preceded in death by his parents Mr. Paul and Mrs. Elizabeth Kupsak
{nee Braun}.
The Radiance of this "Pearl ofA Gem"will always glow in the hearts of his:
Darling Wife of Forty Nine Years: Mrs. Doris Elaine Kupsak {nee Trexell};
Two Daughters: Valerie Kupsak-Schmidt and Lisa Kupsak-Primrose;

A


ONE THING!
The Apostle Paul wrote at Philippians 3:13-14,
"Brethren, I count not myself to have apprehended:
but this 'One Thing' I do, forgetting those things
which are behind, and reaching forth unto those
things which are before, I press toward the mark for
the prize of the High Calling of God in Christ Jesus."


s I_ Paul took inventory of his life and determined that
Pastor Ben Bailey the pleasant things of this life was fading fast, growing
The Prophetic Voice strangely dim, and only what was done for Christ
P. O. Box N-9518 would last. Therefore, he counted acclamations
Nassau, Bahamas gained through scholastic achievements, the prestige
Tpv.inc@coralwave.com associated with his pedigree relative to birth as a
Roman Citizen and Jewish Biblical Scholar, together
with promotions within national political and religious
affiliations, in retrospect, nothing but a complete waste. Once rid of the clutter
in his life, he discarded all but that 'One Thing' he considered necessary;
his focus became single, and his whole purpose for being alive was flooded
with God's Light. God made life simple for the Apostle Paul; who pointed us
to 'The High Call of God' as being that 'One Thing.'
Paul declared at Philippians 1:21: "For to me to live is Christ, and to die is
gain." This statement summed up his mindset on the upward 'Call of God'
compelling him to glorify God as his single purpose; Paul refused to waste
energy on anything else, and spent the rest of his life in the fulfilment of this
'One Thing.'
The Patriarch Job affirmed at Job 27:3-6, "As long as my breath is in me,
and the Breath of God in my nostrils, my lips will not speak wickedness, nor
my tongue utter deceit. Till I die I will not put away my integrity from me. My
righteousness I hold fast, and will not let it go; my heart shall not reproach
me as long as I live."
An Arab proverb states: "There are no pockets in a burial shroud." Job lost
his family, wealth, health, and despite the accusations of his friends,-maintained
his integrity to the very end, because that was all he had left, after being
stripped of his material possessions. God will evaluate our lives, relative to
Character, and Obedience to doing what His Word Commands. We are
relegated to depend solely on 'One Thing;' Material possessions will fail us
when we stand in the Presence of God.
Job penned these words at Job 19:25-27 in summation to the thought, "I
know that my redeemer liveth, and that he shall stand at the latter day upon
the earth: Though after my skin worms destroy this body, yet in my flesh
shall I see God: Whom I shall see for myself, and mine eyes shall behold,
and not another; though my reins be consumed within me."
The expression "My witness is in Heaven, and my record is on High;"
concretizes Job's complete confidence in God; 'despite affliction by diseases,
loss of all property, miserable comforters as friends, and persecution by
foes': My Living Redeemer gives me Peace. Job believed the worms would
eventually cause his physical death; despite this, the human body covered
with skin though turned to dust would be revived; he would appear in God's
Presence, not by the Proxy provided by Christ's Redemption, through the
experience of faith, but in personal attendance to be fully vindicated by his
God. This expression provides clear evidence of the Old Testament belief in
the resurrection of the human body after death. Job climbs out of great
despair and ascends the heights of faith; he is fully convinced of God's
Justice in the world, and sees God's Righteousness rising to fight his cause,
even at the end of time. Previously, Job only saw God's Witness evidenced
in heavenly realms, but now, he sees God's Vindication on the earth."
Furthermore, this is the answer to the crucial question, "If a man dies, shall
he live again?"
King David sang at Psalm 27:4, "One thing I have desired of the Lord, that
will I seek: That I may dwell in the House of the Lord all the days of my life,
to behold the Beauty of the Lord, and to inquire in His Temple."
Picture David fleeing from his son Absalom; his flight moves him away from
the Temple in Jerusalem, the place of his anointing; where David experienced
great favour and happiness from God, whilst connected to God's Presence
and Service. The king expressed a yearning to return to God's House; to
enlighten his mind in God's Righteous Ways according to the Beauty of God's
Divine Character, which removed his anxieties, David acknowledged his
complete confidence and trust in God's Preservation from his enemies.
Finally, David concluded that the only proper attitude for him; was to wait
patiently for God to act on his behalf, and restore his fortunes.

FOR the past"
20 years, Rev Dr
Cherelus Exante
has been pastoring the
150-member congrega-
tion at the New Haitian
Mission Baptist Church
on Palm Beach Street.
The services are con-
ducted entirely in
Creole.


ACCORDING to Minister Dereck
Roberts of Bahamas Christian
Fellowship Centre on Carmichael Road,
the 'language barrier' is no longer an
excuse for believers when it comes to
ministering to persons in the Haitian
community.
Here, he provides some tips to get
your evangelical efforts going:


brother's


Saer...

)ut what if he's a


Haitian?


And based on Dr Exante count,
there are nearly 15 Haitian church-
es in New Providence, many of
which are smaller and may go
unnoticed.
Notwithstanding their presence
however, it is widely regarded that
English-speaking Bahamian
churches have a responsibility to
reach out to the Haitian communi-
ty with alms, and the message of
Christ. Whether lack of resources
or a prevailing prejudice is to
blame however, it would seem that
the Haitian community is the last
thing on the agenda (if at all) in the
majority of Bahamian churches.
Speaking of the evangelistic
efforts he has observed over the
years, Dr Exante, who is also a
Haitian, said that only a few


English-speaking churches look
into the Haitian community -
though some of them are located
very near to areas that are popu-
lated by Haitians.
"I don't see a big number of
English-speaking churches taking
notice of Haitians. But I think that
if they have a heart to look for
Haitian communities they will...
"I think it is time, as black peo-
ple and as Christians also, that we
look first of all at our Haitian
brothers as black people, and sec-
ondly to look at the Haitian as a
Christian because both of us have
the responsibility as blacks and
Christians to encourage each
other," he told Tribune Religion.
SEE page 27


These persons can use their native lan-
guage and knowledge of their heritage
as a worship tool for God.
On Sunday night for example, BCFC
members who are of Haitian origin and
speak fluent Creole will conduct a praise
and worship segment during the serv-
ice. The speaker on that night will be
presenting the word in English, while a
Haitian translates in Creole.

"I think that the success of the min-
istry is being able to meet people where
they are. So, if you want to minister to
these people you have to meet them
where they are. Jesus wanted to minis-
ter to Peter, James and John, so he went
to the seaside to where they were. You
have to meet people on their common
ground," Minister Roberts said.
SDon't go empty handed.
Minister Roberts noted that the
church can give out tracks in Creole
when they go ministering. They can also

RELIGION


Thursday, June 26, 2008 PG 23


0 THIS graduation theme is appropriate for persons of all ages to
consider. Before reading this article, why not pause to ponder what
your answer would be if someone put the question to you concern-
ing the responsible choices to which you are committed?


Committed


to making


responsible


choices


The word committed means to put
your weight behind your words. It says
that this person is serious, sincere,
motivated and desirous of being asso-
ciated with a particular philosophy, the-
ology, principle or course of action.
Responsible choices are ones which
are socially acceptable in a just society,
and which protect the general well-
being of other persons. It is usually a
well-intentioned position which is
arrived at after serious thought initially,
but which becomes a matter of habit if
practiced regularly.
The process includes considering
consequences while seeking to deter-
mine what is right and what is wrong
about a position. Abnegating responsi-
bility by allowing someone else to
make the decision is to leave oneself at
the mercy of the other person's conclu-
sion.
For a student, the dilemma could
centre around leaving the school prem-
ises during class-time to accompany a
best friend on a short rendezvous. The
decision-making process needs to
involve the following considerations:
What are the school rules? What are


silence?
Do I act in a belligerent manner or
do I seek to resolve differences calmly?
a Do I permit myself to be suspended
from school or fired from the job?
Do I drive in a manner that is dan-
gerous to the public or do I obey the
law?
Do I pay my bills or shirk my finan-
cial responsibilities?
Do I give God and the things of
God priority or do I act as if there is no
God at all?
If we are committed to making
responsible choices we will decide:
1. To seek to excel in whatever we
attempt to do.
2. To be a leader among our peers
helping them to make responsible
choices and not be a follower of their
irresponsible choices.
3. To offer respect and conduct our-
selves in a manner that helps others to
respect us in return.
4. To seek the Lord with all of our
soul, mind and strength to avoid selfish-
ness.
Are you committed to making
responsible choices? I hope your
answer is "yes".


Can you handle the truth



of the Bahamian coin?


) There are two things that Bahamians hold close to their
hearts their politics and religion and it's these two phe-
nomenons that make up the Bahamian coin.
These are the two most influential and divisive tools that
the enemy has in his arsenal. And I am likening our make-
up as a country to that of a coin which has two sides.


POLITICS
On one side of this coin we've got
politics of which the grassroots
Bahamians can't seem to function
without. Whenever politics is men-
tioned especially around election
time the majority of Bahamians go
back into their closets of yesteryear
and pull out their history of racism,
which will always keep this country
divided and stagnant.
The grassroots have yet to under-
stand or accept the fact that both the
PLP and FNM are one and the same.
The fight between these two par-
ties is riot so much for the empower-
ment of future generations, but
rather to see which one of them will
gain possession of the gun power and
control. Would it be the rabbit or the
farmer?
What the political side of the
Bahamian coin has to its advantage is


the ignorance of the grassroots who
are selling or have already sold their
birthright for a bowl of instant
potage.
These political junkies want a
quick fix to their problems and know
very little of sacrificing for the gener-
ation of tomorrow. They don't have
the ability to see a Bahamas 40/50
years from now.

RELIGION
On the other side of this Bahamian
coin is religion. This is the subtle,
influential and divisive tool that the
enemy uses to lead a person into a
faith belief or system which has a
form of Godliness, but is void of His
power.
The politicians are fully aware that
religious leaders have a sphere of
influence over a great percentage of
the people and therefore use their


political positions to win religious
leaders.
If one would listen carefully at
times when some of the religious
leaders speak on national issues they
sound just like the politician; and
when the politicians speak, he or she
also sounds like the religious leader.
Like politics, religion is of man's
origin and is a power play or power
move to influence and gain control
over their followers. If religion was of
Father Yahweh, the one true God of
Israel, then there would be no need
for the many different religious
denominational churches that are
competing with one another in Jesus'
name.
Revelations 2:7,2:11, 2:17, 2:29, 3:6,
3:13 and 3:22. He that hath an ear, let
him hear what the Spirit saith unto
the churches.
We are all crying about the deterio-
ration of our nation, but yet nobody
wants to honestly confront and deal
with the key elements that are con-
tributing heavily to our destruction.
The Bahamas of today is a gold
mind for the parliamentarians and
the religious leaders as they've got
their generation whom they're able to
manipulate and control, but this is
not the case with the generation of


tomorrow.
The enemy, himself is aware and
afraid of the next generation and this
is why he's unleashed a violent
assault against the youth of our
nation in the killing and the incarcer-
ation of as many as he can.
Our greatest problem as a nation is
that our present day leaders are so
selfcentred and are making no provi-
sion to pass the leadership baton onto
future generations.
As you read this article, I want you
to know that despite all of the rheto-
ric coming from our religious and
political leaders many of them will
not experience God's true bless
ings/promises for this Bahama land.
Let me also remind you that there
was a segment of the nation of Israel
that didn't go into the Promised Land
with the Joshua generation.

Does a best friend agree to anything
out of loyalty? Is the friend being

defiance of authority? Am I being

What kind of friend implicates me in
wrong-doing?
For an adult, the dilemma could be
to cloak a friend in an affair by lying to
the spouse when he or she calls the

Looking


unto


Jesus


* A FEW years ago I heard the story about a Christia
minister and a group of students from Canada who wei
Kenya for a summer field study programme. They had
jeep to enable them travel deep into the rugged hinterl


On one of their travels the vehicle
broke down and they had to employ the
services of the village mechanic. The
mechanic saw the problem, travelled to
the city and bought spare parts, came
back and fixed the car. He spent three
full days working on the car. The cler-
gyman who told this story said that he
was afraid that the mechanic's service
charges would be too high.
In order to force the mechanic to set-
tle for less, he went into the washroom,
removed much of the money from his
wallet and hid it in his socks; The idea
was that when the mechanic tells him
the cost he would open his wallet and
say, "Look, this is all I have." So he

are ready to leave. He says
mechanic, "So now, what do yoi
for your workmanship?" The n
looks at him and says, "You ar
of God.., I do it for God. God
me. For you it is free of charge.
The clergyman concluded h
with the observation that the m
through his faith in God, has o0
the fear of poverty and attach


money, which he, in his relative afflu-
ence, was not able to do.
Last week's gospel was about Jesus
giving instructions to the 12 apostles as
he sent them out to go and proclaim the
Good News of the kingdom of God.
The values of the kingdom are differ-
ent from the values of the world, so
much so that people tend to reject the
message and turn against the messen-
gers. Tradition has it that almost all the
apostles died the violent death of mar-
tyrdom. Some of them ended up being
crucified on the cross, like Peter and
Andrew; beheaded, like James and
Paul; flayed alive, like Bartholomew; or
n thrown into a cauldron of boiling oil,
nt to like John. It was natural, therefore, for
the apostles to fear as Jesus sends them
a out to evangelize a hostile world.
and. Yielding to this fear however, would
make them abandon the dangerous mis-
sion in order to save their skin. Jesus
instructed them on how to overcome
fear. The key is for us to look unto Jesus
as our hero and model. As Jesus said
earlier in this discourse "A disciple is
not above the teacher, nor a slave above
nd they the master" (Matthew 10:24).
to the The gospel identifies two fears that
u charge the apostles had:
mechanic fear of false accusation and convic-
e a man tion
will pay and fear of bodily harm and death.
In either case Jesus teaches them that
is story the way to overcome the fear is by
echanic, keeping one's mind focused not on the
iercome here-and-now but on the coming king-
ment to dom of God. "So have no fear of them;


for nothing is covered up that will not
be uncovered, and nothing secret that
will not become known" (verse 26).
The authorities that persecuted Jesus
and his followers had their strategies for
covering up the truth. They knew how
to tamper with evidence, produce false
witnesses and convict the innocent.
They would cover up the truth and cel-
ebrate a lie. Many of the apostles, like
their master Jesus, would be falsely
accused and unjustly condemned to
shameful treatment and death. The way
to overcoming this fear is to look up to
Jesus who has demonstrated by his ris-
ing from the dead that in the end every
lie will be exposed, the truth will come
to light and justice will again be just.
By looking to Jesus we see that the
trials and sufferings of this life, especial-
ly those that we face as we try to live out
and share our faith with others are
short-lived. We should, therefore, not
give in to fear of contradiction, knowing
that in the end truth with triumph over
untruth, justice over injustice, and eter-
nal life over death, as we see already in
the life, death and resurrection of our
master, Jesus Christ.
As we continue to travel on this road
of life we must always look to Jesus, In
good times and in bad we must look to
Jesus. When others forsake us we must
look to Jesus. In life and death we must
look to Jesus. So as you continue to
enjoy the rest of your day today, let us
keep in mind him he died, but lives for
us.


Golden Gates Assembly awards Strachan as 'Father of the Year'


ASSISTANT Pastor Alan Strachan receives his plaque from Bishop Ros
Davis.


ALAN STRACHAN, assistant pastor at
Golden Gates Assembly World Outreach
Ministries, has been selected as the church's
Father of the Year 2008-2009.
Bishop Ros Davis is the senior pastor of the
church.
The Father of the Year programme is a newly
implemented initiative of the Men's Ministry
Department.
Members of the church at large were invited
to vote, by secret ballot, for an individual of
their choice to be Father of the Year, using spec-
ified criteria. The focus of this year's criteria was
that the father should be active in his church, in
the wider society and a leader of his family. A
Alan Strachan won the contest handsomely.
Reverend Strachan is licensed as a minister of
religion by the Assemblies of God in the
Bahamas. He has been a member of Golden
Gates Assembly World Outreach Ministries for
over 30 years, having been elected to the post of
assistant pastor at the church on March 15, 1989,
a position in which he presently serves, 19 years
later.
Pastor Strachan is well loved and respected
within the church, and elsewhere, as a no-non-
sense man of integrity and character who can be
counted on to do and say what is right, just and
fair at all times. He is very uncomfortable with
mediocrity. He is an active preacher, teacher
and encouragerr', who has held leadership roles
in almost all of the church's ministries over the
years.
A career public servant, Pastor Strachan's
journey to his present post as under secretary in


the Ministry of Health and Social Development
began over 30 years ago.
In 1977 he began with the Department of
Immigration, where he rose to the rank of acting
director of Immigration in 1997. He served as
deputy permanent secretary in the Ministry of
Labour, Immigration and Training until June
2000, then moved to the Ministry of Social
Services and Community Development where
he was appointed undersecretary in 2002.
He has been serving as undersecretary in the
Ministry of Health and Social Development
since 2007.
He. holds a bachelors degree in business
administration, an advanced diploma in public
administration and policy management, an
advanced certification in management and

numerous to mention.
A proud son of the island of Exuma, Pastor
Strachan and his wife Ginger have three chil-
dren, two girls and one boy, Twyla, Angel and

gratulating Rev Strachan on receiving this pres-
tigious, well-earned award.
This Father of the Year stands as a shining

with God's grace, fathers everywhere can suc-
ceed eminently in fulfilling their God-ordained

St Matthew's honours 11, as church


celebrates 205 years with'Great Ball'


AS historic St Matthew's Anglican
Church celebrates 205 years of
Christian witness to the Bahamian
community, parish honourees paid a
courtesy call on Governor General
Arthur Hanna at Government House.
Celebrating its 205th year in grand
style, the parish will honour eleven of
its members at a 'Great Ball' planned
for Friday, June 27, in the Crystal
Palace ballroom of the Wyndham
Nassau Resort. The ball promises to
present a stellar "Oscar" event, with
entertainment from renowned
Bahamian performers and a fantastic
menu.
A documentary presentation of the
honourees will be featured, highlight-
ing their contributions. While the
Royal Bahamas Defence Force Band
fills the ballroom with music.

HISTORY IN THE MAKING
On April 8, 1802 the House of
Assembly passed an Act establishing
the eastern district of New Providence
as a separate and distinct parish from
the parish of Christ Church to be
"called and distinguished by the name
of St Matthew's Parish forever here-
after and by no other name." And on
July 18, 1802 the country's oldest edi-
fice was dedicated.

Tickets for the great ball are available
at the St Matthew's Church office (Tel:
323-8220 or 322-3259). All proceeds are
in aid of the new youth and day care cen-
tre for the parish.

Can two walk together, unless they are in agreement?


Can two walk together,
except they be agreed?
Amos 3:3 (KJV)

IF you must "leave your mind in the
car" when you go to church, you would
be well advised to find another church
or faith community in which to wor-
ship!
In past times, the pastor of a local
assembly was the most intellectually
advanced. He usually did not have a
college degree or even a high school
education, but was abundantly
endowed with great wisdom from a far
superior source the omniscient God.
In fact, in the past, most Bahamian
pastors, particularly in the Pentecostal
denominations, openly despised higher
education and severely criticized those
who sought it. Yet, the intellectual
prowess and wisdom of yesteryear's
spiritual forefathers still leave many of


DR ALBERT S.
, j : .


us in awe.
By and large, today's pastors cater to
diverse congregations of highly intel-
lectual people who have certain expec-
tations and tolerances.
When views, practices and private
interpretations of scripture grate upon
the minds of intelligent people, and
when it seems that "shifting one's brain
into 'park' is advisable during worship
services, that is a pretty good indica-
tion that it is time to find another
Church where, at the very least, you can
have your brain idling in "neutral" dur-
ing the services.
During the 2008 campaign to deter-


mine a democratic candidate for the
US presidential race, Senator Barak
Obama faced widespread criticism for
the remarks, philosophies and sermon
content of his Pastor, Rev Jeremiah
Wright, from whom he eventually dis-
tanced himself.
The question repeatedly asked was,
'How could a person sit under the
philosophies and views of a pastor,
year after year, and not intellectually
support such views?' In fact, many
reasoned that Sen Barak Obama must
have agreed with his pastor. If he had
strongly objected over time, he would
have left that faith community, many
reasoned. On the other hand, Sen
Obama's pastor said that the only rea-
son he was being rejected was due to
political expediency.
I believe that many people sympa-
thize with Sen Obama because, upon
personal self-examination, they too
have been "found wanting."
A lot of preachers come up with a lot


of strange philosophies in their pulpits!
Some of this results, I would imagine,
from TV, the books they have read or
perhaps, from the personal visions
given to the so-called "set man" or
"woman" (the term 'set' was extracted
from the KJV's rendering of I
Corinthians 12:28a). Such are expected
to be followed without question,
notwithstanding II Peter 1:20, (KJV),
which reads,
Knowing this first, that no prophecy
of the scripture is of any private inter-
pretation.
And Colossians 2:8 which instructs
believers to;
Beware lest any man spoil you
through philosophy and vain deceit,
after the tradition of men, after the rudi-
ments of the world, and not after Christ.
So we come face to face with this
immortal question of Amos 3:3, "Can
two walk together, except they be

IN keeping with the church's man-
date to "empower all believers to live
spiritually, financially and physically
balanced lives", Pastor Joseph Cox and
the members of El-Shaddai Ministries
International have teamed up with
Spirit Gospel Splash 92.5 FM Radio
Station and Bally Total Fitness Gym to
host their first annual health fair and
four mile fun/run/walk-a-thon.
The health fair, set for Saturday,
June 28, is part of the church's commit-
ment to the area of New Providence,
Pastor Cox said. It will follow the
fun/run/walk which starts at 6am, com-
mencing from the church grounds.
Several trained professionals and
doctors will be on hand from 10am to
4pm to conduct free tests for blood
pressure, glucose and diabetes, as well
as free medical consultations, massages
and diabetic wound care.
On site will also be medical, health
foods, pharmaceutical and insurance
exhibitions, along with the mobile
blood bank of the Princess Margaret
Hospital.
"Since we are located in the Fire
Trail area, we want to utilize this
opportunity to reach out to all mem-
bers of the community and those who


might be afraid to go into the govern-
ment and private clinics because of
their status in the country," Pastor Cox
said. "We want to educate the public
on various ways to prevent the spread
of diseases and premature deaths due
to lifestyle related illnesses such as
hypertension and obesity to name a
few."
Education will come in the form of a
lively panel discussion on Friday, June
27, addressing issues facing men and
women such as prostate, colon, cervical
and breast cancer.

SECOND CHANCES
The pastor's quest for educating and
encouraging healthy living came about
after his own near fatal experience, a
consequence of his poor eating and
lifestyle habits.
"About five years ago, I was in a
pretty bad condition being hospitalized
some four or five times a year due to
hypertension, and the early stages of
diabetes" he recalled. "I suffered vari-
ous ailments including temporary
blindness, fainting spells, heart palpita-
tions, irritable bowel syndrome, and
other stress related problems. Later, it
was discovered by Cardiologist Dr


Patrick Cargill that I had a pin size
hole in my heart contributing to the
irregular heartbeat.
"That's when I realized that I had to
make a conscious effort, by faith in
God, to fight back and reverse these
conditions and regain my health. I
knew the devil meant it for bad, but
God made it my testimony for good. I
thank God for His guidance through
the Holy Spirit in restoring my body -
not knowing that He was preparing me
to undertake the responsibility of lead-
ing a ministry such as I am today."

A QUEST FOR HEALTH
Living in a country where obesity is
accepted and unhealthy foods are
revered, Pastor Cox says he and his
congregation are passionate about
changing this mind-set, and by God's
grace, save some through healthy
lifestyles.
"With God's guidance I was directed
to Dr Norman Gay's anti-aging clinic,
and adopted a whole new regiment
involving naturally produced supple-
ments," he said of his new, healthier
life. "This, combined with a regular
work-out routine at Bally Total Fitness
Gym was the key factor in maintaining


a balanced physical existence.
"I began about three or four years
ago weighing 220 pounds with a 5'6"
frame and all of the aforementioned
conditions. With timely and consistent
aerobics and strength training classes
assisted by instructors like Don's
Cycling Session, Kombi Junkanoo
Dance and Jeff's Stepping Classes.
"Today, I am still the same height,
completely off all pharmaceutical med-
ication, with a well controlled blood
pressure and a stable weight of 1601bs.
It is my wish, along with my member-
ship, for all Bahamians and persons
around the world to prosper and be in
good health, even as their souls pros-
per."
Pastor Cox said he also hopes all
pastors and church groups will get
involved and encourage healthy
lifestyles which will reduce the amount
of unnecessary deaths related to poor
eating, drinking and other kinds of
unhealthy living practices in the
Bahamas.

Am I my brother's keeper...



but what if he's a Haitian?


FROM page 22

Dr Exante is pleased however, to
know that some churches are developing
programmes that cater to the Haitian
community. He said that some
Bahamian pastors are also going to Haiti
in order to organise evangelistic efforts
there:
Pastor Paul Butler, at the Bahamas
Christian Fellowship Centre (BCFC) on
Carmichael Road, is one of them. He
travelled to Haiti last year where he con-
ducted a national revival, ministering on
a daily basis to up to 70,000 Haitians in
one meeting.

MISSION BAHAMAS 2008
Now, BCFC is reaching out to the
Haitian community again during its inau-
gural "Mission Bahamas 2008", a nation-
al campaign which will deal with several
topics in the Bahamian community.
On Sunday night (to culminate the
mission which began on Wednesday),
organizers have decided to create an
English/Creole service to attract the
Haitian community, Without fear of con-
tradiction, Dereck Roberts, a minister at
BCFC, told Tribune Religion that nearly
50,000 (out of some 180,000) residents in
New Providence are Haitians whether
legal or not. And with such a large popu-
lation to be reached, Minister Roberts
believes that it is important for all
churches to reach out to that community.
Minister Roberts suspects, however,
that many churches do not reach out to
the Haitian community because they see
the difference in language as a major bar-
rier. But that is easily surmountable.
When he ministered in Mexico, Minister
Roberts said that it may have taken a
while for him to get used to having an
interpreter, but in the end, communica-
tion was still effective.
"Once we are able to bypass the lan-
guage barrier, we can do much," he
added. (See suggestions in sidebar)
While the language barrier is an obvi-
ous concern, one cannot avoid the view
that prejudice and disdain, and in some
cases sheer nonchalance, for the Haitian


community may be part of the reason
why church folk do not go into Haitian
communities to minister.
While Minister Roberts hopes that
there is no discrimination against
Haitians in the church, Dr Exante told
Tribune Religion that it is a reality,
though an unfortunate one.
"It is unfortunate that even in the
church you will find black Bahamians
who are against their Haitian brothers.
"There is prejudice, and people who
will try to manipulate in the church. But
as Christians we're supposed to work
together in unity. It's time to end this
prejudice because we are living in the last
days. I am of the position that if I read
clearly my Bible and you read clearly
your Bible, you are supposed to know
how you are to act. We are supposed to
come together to prepare each other in
this time for Christ's return," Dr Exante
said.
And according to Minister Roberts,
the believer should be sensitive to the
Haitian's plight; many of them have
come to the Bahamas seeking economic
and/or political refuge. He said that the
Christian should not seek to be among
the 'goats' at Jesus' left hand on the last
day. (Read Matthew 25: 41 46)
"One of the mandates of the church is
to feed the hungry, give drink to the
thirsty and give clothes to the naked. If
that was the commission, we can't dis-
criminate against anybody. So whether
these people come here illegally or legal-
ly the first place fhese people should
receive assistance from is the church," he
said.

BITTER EXPERIENCES
At New Covenant Baptist Church on
Independence Drive, Bishop Simeon
Hall has been reaching out to the
Haitian community for the past 15 years.
While he does agree that the church's
responsibility is to affirm the humanity
of all person's as made in God's image,
he has had some "bitter experiences"
with persons in the Haitian community.
And, he said, they are proving to be
"rather awkward to work with".
"I don't think that we recognize that


we are dealing with two completely dif-
ferent mindsets and cultures...Some of
them, and I emphasize some of them, are
blanketed with a spirit of ungratefulness.
You never seem to do enough for them,
and what you do, they turn around and
make it look like they have a right to
these things. And I think it is that spirit
that the Bahamian community is finding
and cannot entertain or face..," Bishop
Hall told Tribune Religion. (It should be
noted that Bishop Hall is referring to
Haitians who are here illegally.)
"On its widest form, I think that we're
dealing with two cultures that are almost
juxtaposed to each other. And we're in
for a major conflict...," he cautioned.

CALL TO THE HAITIAN COMMUNITY
Bishop Hall told Tribune Religion that
he has learned that some Haitians who
worked for Papa Doc are here in the
Bahamas creating mischief. He calls on
Haitian pastors to do something about it.
"And I call on the pastors in the
Haitian community to do more to get
their people to work within the law, and
secondly to get them to recognize that
the Bahamas has'laws," he said.
Over the years, New Covenant has
worked closely with several Haitian
churches in its circuit, Bishop Hall said.
Where possibly, the church has also
helped Haitians with legitimate claims to
status. There have also been cases where
the church sponsored Haitians to do
work, if there was no Bahamian found to
do a particular job, Bishop Hall added.
"I know we're not unique; many
churches are doing work in the Haitian
community...See, if the people come
here in a boat, we should do whatever
we can in a humane way. And part of
that help may be to help them get
home...," Bishop Hall suggested.
"I don't want to seem like I'm a pastor
who just doesn't care, but what I'm say-
ing is that [some Haitians] are awkward
and just a handful.
"And at the same time, what can you
do to show the humane? And as a
church, what can you do to show the face
of Christ to these people? And that's
what I've been wrestling with," he said.


Language barrier! What language barrier?


Can two walk


together, unless


they are in


agreement?

SEE page 25

agreed?" (KJV)
When it comes to the church, the
answers can be very complicated.
Church people "walk together" for a
variety of reasons some of them are
purely emotional while others defy
logic and intellectual reasoning.
You hear people when they make
statements like, "I was born a
Baptist!" (Substitute any denomina-
tion or church's name here) .... is my
church!" They are communicating to
us that they consider a certain faith
community as their "home", especial-
ly for the purposes of christenings,
marriages, and funerals, etc.
Some attend a particular church
simply because they have done so for
years and, for whatever reason, will
not leave. Some feel that since they
have been socialized in a particular
place, that is where they should be;
some feel a "vested interest" in their
church while others attend because a
close relative served there in a signifi-
cant position, and the list goes on and
on.
The reason the "two are walking
together" is very complicated indeed -
yet it would seem that on some level,
whether conscious or sub-conscious,
that there must exist some level of
"agreement". There is a lot to think
about here...
Amos 3:3 and the example cited in
this discourse suggests that, among
other things, people can be judged by
their associations and that includes the
church they attend and the pastor
under whose ministry they sit or oth-
erwise associate.
Today, Amos 3:3 continues to speak,
directly and personally, to individuals.

"I say that all of our churches need to

noted.

The secular world is doing it now; radio
ads and signs at gas stations tell of specials
in Creole, so why not the church?
"If you have a church that is in a predom-
inantly Haitian populated area of our com-
munity, then the way you also advertise
your church in English, you should also put
that advertisement up in Creole," Minister
Roberts said.
"lihe' people, who are doing the secular


concerts are advertising them also in Creole
now because they realize that we do have
that large segment of Haitians in our popu-
lation, And they are very much involved in
what is going on in our community," he

GRADUATES








S t Saviour's Parish, Cat Island, held its first ever Bash
and Recognition Service for graduating seniors.
Chosen for the outstanding honour were seven parish
members who graduated from Arthur's Town High School,
and who had shown themselves as leaders in both the spiri-
tual and academic arenas.
The cadre of graduates never missed a Sunday school class
or Sunday morning Eucharist service.
They were also credited with having given yeoman service
to the various ministries which they were involved; some
were acolytes who served around the altar for many years.
Selected for this special honour were Dwanesha Dean,
Delano Johnson, Dornella Newbold, Shantavious Newbold,
Colette Pratt, Mandrea Rolle and Jamie Webb.
Earlier this year, it was Father Chester Burton, priest in
charge of Cat Island, who suggested that there should be a
day set aside to salute and honour graduates who had made
an indelible mark in the hallowed halls of Arthur's Towd
High School and had lifted the Anglican Church's name to
where it has never been before.
The committee chose Sunday, June 15 to salute the gradu-
ates, and although it coincided with Father's Day, St
Andrew's Church was filled to capacity. Father Edward
Seymour celebrated and preached. He admonished gradu-
ates to stay focused and to continue to stay connected to'the
source, Jesus Christ.
He further stated that every Anglican graduate should rec-
ognize that Sunday is a day of worship and they should never
forget where they have come from these many years.
The graduates were presented with plaques and taken on a
motorcade through the streets of Arthur's Town which ended
at Sammy T's in Bennett's Harbour where they feasted on a
scrumptious meal to end their day of celebration.

N an act of overwhelming propor-
tions, principal Marvin 0
Duncombe, teachers and support staff of
Preston H Albury visited the pristine
shores of Cat Island on a one-day excur-
sion tour from the Rock Sound Eleuthera
High School.
Many residents were baffled when they
saw the MV Clipper, the charter boat
responsible for transporting tourists from
the cruise ships to Half Moon Cay, berth at
Bennett's Harbour Dock. As many as 30
faculty and staff accompanied the princi-
pal. A first in the history books for Preston
Albury and St Saviour's Parish, the special
visit was the brain child of Mrs Syblilene
Taylor, social and event organiser for the
Preston Albury High School.
Father Chester Burton, Anglican priest
in charge of Cat Island, formerly served as


the school's senior master and Religious
Studies teacher. After leaving Rock
Sound, Fr Burton took up residence on
Cat Island. On the first leg of the tour the
group met the principal and staff of the
Arthur's Town High School where Fr
Burton is now a part time teacher.
Starting in North Cat Island, the teach-
ers visited the Ministry of Education
Media Centre, the district' superinten-
dent's office and the newly opened Bank
of the Bahamas Complex. The group then
trekked to the summit of Mount Alvemia
to bask in the radiance of the picturesque
scenery and shore line. After that the bus
tour went into Port Howe for lunch.
The group ended their maiden tour of
Cat Island at Pompey Rock Villas in
Bennett's Harbour and waited patiently on
the return of the MV Clipper to transport
them back to the Eleuthera main land.
