A young man and his grand-
mother died early yesterday
morning as a result of a fire at
an Elizabeth Estates home.
Police patrolling Antigua
Street at 4.05am yesterday dis-
covered the fire at the white
and tan trimmed home.
A fire truck responded from
Elizabeth Street station, which
was later joined by two others
from police headquarters,
according to Supt Jeffrey Dele-
veaux, head of the fire branch.
Firefighters had to break
down the door to gain entry.
There was extensive damage
to a south-eastern bedroom and
smoke damage throughout the


house. However, there was min-
imal fire damage to the struc-
ture, noted Mr Deleveaux.
Fire officers did not release
identities of the victims pend-
ing notification of a relative.
However, a family member told
The Tribune that the grand-
mother was Ms Zerlene
Emmanuel, who was in her 70s


Police still seeking

man for questioning

on Harl Taylor murder.
THE man wanted for questioning in the murder of handbag
designer Harl Taylor is still at large 24 hours after police released
a poster showing his face.
At press time last night, police were still searching for 21-year-old
Troyniko McNeil, who was last known to be living in the Kennedy
sub-division.
Speaking with The Tribune yesterday, Chief Supt Glenn Miller
said police have no new leads in the case, but that more people have
come forward with information after the release, of McNeil's pho-
tograph.
It's been seven months since Mr Taylor was found stabbed to
death in his Mountbatten House home in West Hill Street and no-
one has yet been arrested for his murder.
Police are asking for anyone with information about McNeil's
whereabouts to call the emergency telephone numbers 919 or 911,
the control room at 322-3333, Crimestoppers at 328-8477, or to con-
tact their nearest police station.
The search is also still continuing for two persons wanted for
questioning in the case of gay murder victim Marvin Wilson.
Police last week released two sketches of persons of interest in
connection with the case.

AN American teenager
hanged'himself in a bathroom
following an argument with
his parents at the Atlantis
hotel, police revealed last
night.
Chief Supt Glenn Miller
said Mitchell Morgan, 17, of
Cincinnati, Ohio, was staying
with his parents at the Par-
adise Island resort when the
tragedy occurred.
Reportedly the teen was
involved in an argument with
his parents shortly before
10pm on Thursday. Following
the argument, Mr Miller said
the teen locked himself in the
hotel bathroom.
After some time had
elapsed without the teen
emerging, his parents sought
help from security officials to
open the door. When they did
so, they discovered the
teenager hanging from the
shower rod.
Mitchell was rushed to Doc-
tors Hospital where he was
pronounced dead at 3.45am.
Comments from Atlantis
regarding the incident were
not available up to press time
last night.
This latest death follows
another suspicious matter ear-
lier this week when police
believe that 39-year-old Gre-
gory Moxey committed sui-
cide in front of his girlfriend's
home.
According to Inspector
Christopher Wright of the
homicide division of the Roy-
al Bahamas Police Force Mox-
ey, 39, of Skyline Lakes, was
found in the driver's seat of a
GMC Yukon jeep with a sin-
gle gunshot wound to the
chest. Next to Moxey was a
12-gauge shotgun and one
spent cartridge.
"We do know, after speak-
ing with a female resident here
that the deceased is known to
her," Inspector Wright said.
"She had indicated that they
had a relationship which had
discontinued. The deceased
came by that evening trying
to reconcile that relationship.
There was some degree of
rejection and he left. Around
2am he returned and that is
when this discovery was
made," Inspector Wright said.
According to Inspector
Wright, Moxey and the
woman have a son who is
about seven years old. How-


ever, Inspector Wright point-
ed out that Moxey also has a
number of other children.
Police have not officially clas-
sified Moxey's death as a sui-
cide.


Union


staff


to be


paid

STAFF at the Bahamas
Hotel Catering and Allied
Workers Union are finally
being paid regularly after a
Supreme Court order com-
pelled all executives, includ-
ing trustees, to ensure the
payroll is produced.
Justice Neville Adderley
ordered union executives to
prepare the regular payroll
so that workers could be
paid.
Trustees had refused to
sign cheques due to a dis-
pute over whether some
people on the list should be
there.
Justice Adderley's ruling
on May 22 had stated that
the secretary general, trea-
surer and a trustee had to
sign union cheques. How-
ever, the secretary general
and treasurer are on one
side of the in-fighting at the
union, while the trustee is
on the other.
Last week, Mr Colebrook
personally paid the salaries
of the 70 union employees,
amounting to more than
$14,000. Workers were not
paid for nearly three weeks,
causing upset at the union.
Mr Colebrook placed
blame for this on the
trustees yesterday at a press
conference at Workers
House.
He said it was good the
role of trustees had been
clarified and that they knew
their job was to sign rather
than scrutinise. Mr Cole-
brook added that the
trustees were acting irre-
sponsibly during the prob-
lem.

president of the union -

Brilanders without





power '80%0 of time'

By MEGAN REYNOLDS D el costs make generators cost provide commercial power to the islan
Tribune Staff Reporter Diesel costs make generators cost by May 2009.


POWER cuts are occurring on a daily
basis for residents of Harbour Island
who maintain they spend 80 per cent of
the time without electricity.
The outages are affecting around half
of the community, particularly those, liv-
ing in the middle and on the south side of
the island, one resident said.
She bought a generator six weeks ago
on the advice of Bahamas Electricity
Corporation (BEC) maintenance
employees who warned her the continu-
ous power cuts on the island were set to
continue, she said.
In the last six weeks, the resident, who
does not want to be named, has used
her $8,000 diesel generator on almost a


prohibitive on Harbour Island


daily basis.
She said she had to run it for 14 hours
between Wednesday and Friday, includ-
ing power cut between 4pm and 12.30
am on Thursday.
"It's one thing to have a generator for
emergencies but at $7 a gallon for diesel
who can afford it?" she said.
"Harbour Island makes $22 million a
year, it alone supports the Bahamas, so
why are we living in the dark ages? This
is the 21st century."
.When the resident tried to call BEC to
ask about the power cuts, she said she


was passed from one office to another
and given no opportunity to leave a mes-
sage.
BEC general manager of BEC Kevin
Basden said: "There have been a few
instances where faults developed in the
generators resulting in periods of short-
fall.
"We are doing repairs on a number
of units and are shipping two additional
units to Eleuthera."
Mr Basden said the long-term solu-
tion is a new power plant at Hatchett
Bay, Eleuthera, which is expected to

the dispute suggested that the
trustees were previously ham-
pered in carrying out their func-
tions to be able to sign the
cheques.
He added: "Well, in fact, my
majority eight persons that
stand behind myself and the


trustees have no difficulties with
carrying on the members' busi-
ness. You know as long as it's
done in decency and order and
in keeping with the constitution,
we have no issues with carry-
ing on the members' business."
After the Thursday court
order, the executives on Mr
Wilson's side of the debate that
were not being paid were placed


back on the payroll.
However, the issue of back-
pay still exists for these people
and will be resolved when the
substantive union case is heard
in August.
Three officers in Grand
Bahama were off the payroll for
17 weeks and five in Nassau
were off lists for 13 weeks,
'claimed Mr Wilson.


Powerful earthquake hits islands


NEW DELHI (AP)- A 6.7-
magnitude earthquake struck
off India's Andaman Islands on
Friday, but there were no
immediate reports of damage
or injuries, officials and police

Blair, caused panic among resi-
dents but no damage or injuries,
said Ranjit Narayan, the direc-
tor general of police in the
Andamans.
The Indian Meteorological
Department said the quake,
which they described as mod-
erate, struck at 5:40 p.m. at a
depth of 6 miles.
The Japan Meteorological
Agency issued a bulletin saying
there was "a very small possi-


ability of a destructive local
tsunami in the Indian Ocean."
However, Narayan said no
local tsunami warning had been
issued.
The remote islands off the
east coast of India were among
the many areas devastated by
the 2004 Indian Ocean tsuna-
mi. The official death toll across
India was 10,749. Another 5,640
people are listed as missing, pre-
sumed dead.

He added: "We are aware ot the resi-
dents' concerns, and will continue to do
as much as we can in the short term to
minimise disruption."
His response was of little consolation
to Harbour Island residents who main-
tain they are becoming accustomed to
empty promises and little action.
The anonymous resident said: "They
say there are big plans but it's all 'gonna,
gonna, gonna'
"I am just so disillusioned with this
country, it is becoming unacceptable to
live here.
"You can't expect to live a comfort-
able life because there is just no infra-
structure. It's really bad, and I'm afraid
it's going to get worse."

CONTROVERSY is
brewing in the Bahamas
Commercial Stores, Super-
markets and Warehouse
Union (BCSSWWU) over
the question of leadership.
Elgin Douglas, who has
led the union for 20 years,
said yesterday that he is
being threatened by a group
within the union who, he
claims, plan to unseat him
at all costs.
Mr Douglas said a list of
names of union members
who are allegedly in favour
of an early re-election of the
union president was recent-
ly presented to Registrar of
Trade Unions Harcourt
Brown.
However, Mr Douglas
claimed this list was fraud-'
ulent.
With the intention of
"setting the record" straight
and addressing "some false
allegations", Mr Douglas
yesterday addressed shop
stewards from the Coca
Cola factory, City Market
and other stores in New
Providence.
"Our members have stat-
ed they had never seen the
document and were con-
cerned as to how their
names appeared on the doc-
ument. There were a num-
ber of duplicated names on
the document.
"There were persons who
had retired for some time
and no longer members of
the union whose names
were listed," Mr Douglas
said.
He claimed that the list
was "fabricated" by persons
wishing to unseat him.
Mr Douglas said, as pres-
ident, he had improved the
lot of the union's members,
including negotiating indus-
trial agreements, working
with.employers to provide
"birthday pay and bonus-
es", pension, group insur-
ance as welLaps.many other
benefits.
He said the union's tri-
annual meeting and nomi-
nation of officers will be
held on August 20, 2008,
with the election of officers
being held on September 17
in New Providence and
Grand Bahama.
Mr Douglas said he wants
to make sure that union
members are no longer
"confused" about the date
for the election as it had
been changed many times.
He said he believed that
"they are eager to cast their
votes to re-elect me and my
slate of officers to serve
another three-year term."

FREEPORT A 36-year-
old New Providence man
was arraigned in the Marsh
Harbour Magistrate Court
for stealing a $200,000 luxu-
ry vessel in Abaco.
Trevor Watson, a resident
of Pinewood Gardens,
appeared before Magistrate
Crawford McGee on
Wednesday.
He pleaded not guilty to
charges of stealing and
receiving the vessel.
It is alleged that on June
21 and June 23, Watson stole
a 27-ft green Contender go-
fast boat with twin Yamaha
engines from the private
dock of David Roland of
Guana Cay, Abaco.
Magistrate McGee
adjourned the matter to the
August 20.
Watson was granted
$25,000 bail with two
sureties, however, he was
unable to meet the bail and
was remanded to Her
Majesty's Prison, Fox Hill,
until August 20.




TWO MEN

ARRESTED IN

ABACO FOR

FISHERIES

ACT BREACH

TWO men were arrested
in Abaco for breaching the
Fisheries Act when they
were discovered using a pro-
hibited apparatus while div-
ing for conch.
According to police
reports, a team of Fisheries
Department inspectors were
on routine marine patrol in
the Northern Bahamas
around 11.45am on Wednes-
day when they spotted two
men aboard a white 17 foot
Boston Whaler engaged in
diving conch with the use of
a red air compressor in the
vicinity of Stranger's Cay in
the Abacos.
As the inspectors
approached the vessel, one
of the men picked up the
compressor, which had two
breathing-hoses attached to
it, and threw it overboard.
The officers boarded the
Boston Whaler and placed
the two men a 50-year-old
resident of Crown Haven,
Abaco, and 50-year-old res-
ident of Coral Reef Estates,
Freeport, under arrest.
One of the inspectors then
dove overboard and
retrieved the air compressor.
The two suspects, along
with their catch of 300 lbs of
conch meat, were transport-
ed to Grand Cay and handed
over to the police.
The men are expected to
be formally charged with
breaching the Fisheries


Resources Jurisdiction and
Conservation Act at the next
sitting of the Cooper's Town
Magistrate Court.

Bomb scare at




Doctors Hospital


* By MEGAN REYNOLDS
Tribune Staff Reporter
A BOMB scare at Doctors Hospital
sparked an emergency evacuation of
more than 50 staff members and visi-
tors while nurses tended to critically ill
patients inside the building.
Evacuation began at around 8.30pm
on Thursday when an anonymous
caller stated there was a bomb in the
building.
Michelle Rassin, vice president of
operations at Doctor's Hospital in
Collins Avenue, Nassau, said the
emergency procedures do not require
evacuating patients before the bomb
squad determines a real threat.
Police and firefighters stood by,
while staff waited outside the hospital
with patients' friends and family mem-
bers, as the bomb squad searched the
building before dismissing the threat
at 10.30pm.


Over 50 staff members

and visitors evacuated


Ms Rassin said: "They did a thor-
ough clean sweep of the building, with
the help of sniffer dogs, and it was
deemed safe and secure two hours lat-
er."
Doctor's Hospital's executive team
and board of directors was called in to
communicate with emergency ser-
vices, staff and frantic visitors con-
cerned for patients' welfare.
Ms Rassin said: "The patients are
our priority, and if it had been an actu-
al disaster we have an emergency
evacuation plan in place which we
would have implemented.

trained the situation before moving the
patients, because moving a critically ill
patient is not something we would do
in haste."
Emergency evacuation plans at
Doctor's Hospital are in line with the
Ministry of Health and the Public
Hospitals Authority, Ms Rassin said.
"These kind of incidents are good
for us because it lets us practice in
case a real emergency comes," she
added.
"But for somebody to be playing a
malicious joke with a healthcare facil-
ity that has critically ill patients is
incomprehensible."


* By NATARIO McKENZIE
A 24-year-old man was arraigned in
Magistrate's Court yesterday on a charge
of attempted murder.
It is alleged that Lavardo Forbes of
Graham Drive, on Wednesday, June 18,
being concerned with others, attempted
to cause the death of Mark Beckford.
Forbes, who appeared before Magis-
trate Linda Virgill at Court Nine, Nassau
Street, was not required to plead to the
attempted murder charge.
Police prosecutor, Inspector Clifford
Daxon, objected to Forbes being granted
bail. Inspector Daxon told the court that
the offence for which Forbes was charged
falls under Part B of the Bail Act.
He said that the victim Beckford -
was still in critical condition in intensive
care. He also claimed there is a contin-
uing dispute between the complainant
and Forbes and said that Forbes had
threatened to kill Beckford.
Inspector Daxon said that, if released
on bail, the accused might carry out that
threat.
Forbes' attorney Roger Gomez Jr sub-
mitted, however, that police had not been
charged with making threats of death
and that Forbes was a man of good char-
acter with no previous convictions.
He submitted that the onus was on the
prosecution to show that Forbes would
interfere with witnesses in the case.
Mr Gomez further submitted that his
client does not know the victim in the
case and said that his client was willing to
comply with any bail conditions the court
imposed.
Inspector Daxon said it was alleged
that the accused shot Beckford and that
the firearm alleged to have been used
has not been recovered.
Mr Gomez said, however, that that
only helped his client's case as he ques-
tioned how police intended to prove that
his client shot Beckford without produc-
ing the firearm.
Magistrate Virgill granted Forbes
$50,000 bail with two sureties. The case
has been adjourned to November 18 and
19. A status hearing is set for July 3.

Mugabe's sham election in Zimbabwe


Zimbabwe's one-candidate presiden-
tial runoff got off to a slow start yesterday,
with just 10 voters waiting at Harare's
main polling station when it opened.
During the first round in March, hun-
dreds of people were at polling stations by
the time they opened at 7 in the morn-
ing. Friday morning, 10 people were at
the main polling station in the capital and
even fewer were seen at other stations.
Opposition leader Morgan Tsvangirai
withdrew because of violence unleashed
on his supporters during the campaign.
That left longtime President Robert
Mugabe the only candidate, though Tsvan-
girai's name remained on the ballot.
Tsvangirai won the first round. But the
official tally said he did not gain the votes
necessary to avoid a runoff against
Mugabe.
Mugabe's information minister on
Thursday dismissed criticism of Zimbab-
we's leader from anti-apartheid icon Nel-
son Mandela,,the day before the.interna-
tionally condemned runoff election, was
to take place.
information Minister SikhanisoNdilovu
said Mandela was only bowing to Western
pressure when he referred to a "tragic
failure of leadership" in Zimbabwe.
Mandela made his comments Wednes-
day in London before an audience at a
fundraiser to celebrate his 90th birthday
that included Prime Minister Gordon
Brown and former President Bill Clinton.
But Ndlovu nonetheless called Mandela
a statesman, and said he condemned the
West for pressuring African leaders, not
Mandela.
Although out of office for nearly a
decade, Mandela remains a commanding
and respected figure. He uses his influ-
ence sparingly, and it is particularly rare
for him to publicly differ with South
Africa's current president, Thabo Mbeki.
South Africans and other Africans have
been increasingly questioning Mbeki's


unwillingness to publicly criticise Mugabe,
so Mandela's brief but sharp comments
will have particular resonance.
However, Friday's election went ahead
despite being denounced by the interna-
tional community as a "sham."
Amnesty, which has called on the
African Union and SADC (Southern
African Development Community) to
apply the "necessary pressure" on
Mugabe, said "that these elections have
been held in an environment where there
had been serious human rights violations
where there have been murders, tor-
ture, arbitrary arrest and detention.
There's always random beating and
destruction of property targeteS at people,
who are perceived to be supporters of the
opposition party."
Morgan Tsvangirai spoke to journal-
ists shortly after the polls closed yesterday,
commenting that what had taken place in
Zimbabwe was "not an election but an
:, exercise of intimidation." .. -
......' After casting his vote, Mugabe was
asked by the press how he felt; He replied
that he was "upbeat and hungry." His
"hunger" was interpreted as hungry for
power. With so few voters showing up at
the polls in Harare there was speculation
as to what voting was like in outlying dis-
tricts.
Mugabe the only contestant in the
election- now presents an embarrassing
dilemma for the African Union meeting in
Egypt this weekend.
Mugabe was scheduled to travel today
to a Sinai Peninsula resort by the Red Sea
where the African foreign ministers are
meeting.
It will be interesting to see whether this
group will have the courage to censor one
of its own. All eyes are now on Africa as
the democratic world wonders whether
Africans are mature enough to take a
stand against an obvious evil against
humanity.


EPA's threat




to our assets


EDITOR, The Tribune.
IS the EPA (or "Economic
Partnership Agreement" as it
is formally known) a siphon for
the European Union (EU) to
subtly withdraw funds and
assets from partner nations into
Europe? A Trojan horse quiet-
ly allowing the opening of our
assets to our competitors?
If so, you wouldn't know it if
you listened to the government.
It happily trumpets the same
"Act Now Think Later" rea-
soning that led to the erosion
of our banking sector; a sector
which would have been better
served had we thought more
about what we really wanted
and needed and bargained to
get before we acted with finan-
cial legislation.
While the public discusses the
pros and cons of allowing for-
eign persons to have unrestrict-
ed access to various employ-
ment and business sectors in
Bahamian society, the most
important aspect of the treaty
has received scant if any atten-
tion at all. Under the treaty and
enacting legislation, Bahamians
will have to go to Europe to
enforce their rights. This cre-
ates a problem because the
European Union's courts are
not like those in the Bahamas
and the UK. EU courts do not
require the losing side to pay
the winner's costs. This means
that whether you win or lose
you will inject funds into the
EU through its legal system. It
also means that any monies you
take out of your economy to
put into their legal process, stays
there; and there is no reciproc-
ity on this. Europe will not use
its foreign reserves to inject cap-
ital into the Bahamas through
the trial process; we will be
injecting capital into theirs how-
ever and as we do, we risk
devaluing our currency.
What happens then when our
foreign reserves are too low (as
it might be after national crisis
like a hurricane) for govern-
ment to allow us the foreign
exchange necessary to defend
or prosecute our claims? In the
case of you being a Plaintiff
under the agreement you will
simply have to let the claim go
for the time being; but in the
case of you being a defendant, it
turns on whether the other side
can get a default judgment
against you. If that judgme It is
for a sum greater than the value
of your company you may have
to put the company into liqui-
dation and sell the assets to pay
the judgment creditor, in this
case, the individual out of
Europe who has sued you. This,
of course, makes for an excel-
lent vehicle to remove promis-
ing Bahamian companies from
the market and so allow foreign
owned concerns to take over.
Slowly but surely this will mean
that the most profitable mar-
kets will be controlled by for-


eign companies which are better
positioned to litigate.
But our problems do not end
if the Central Bank approves
the foreign exchange. If, for
instance the Central Bank
grants you the foreign currency
needed to litigate in Europe,
businesses (small and medium
sized especially) will have to
count the cost of litigating. At
the town hall meeting in
Freeport it was pointed out that
one country had set aside some
two million ($2m) dollars for
litigation in Europe. If the cost
of the litigation is greater than
the sums you are going to win it
would make no sense to sue as
even if you win you will be pay-
ing more in costs. Small and
medium sized firms will then be
forced to forego claims less than
litigation costs and could be
nickel and dimed out of busi-
ness.
At present the American dol-
lar is about one dollar and fifty
four cents or so to the Euro but
with the price of oil increasing
steadily and more countries
looking to decouple from the
dollar, the demand for the dol-
lar is wading. If demand falls
significantly then the dollar's
value would decline.against oth-
er currencies like the Euro and
European courts would become
out of reach to all but the most
wealthy of businesses assuming
we are still pegged to the dollar.
Even frivolous and vexatious
claims would have to be settled
with resulting loss to the
Bahamian economy. Those that
do not would face default judg-
ments. Any business valued at
less than the cost of litigation
would be forced into insolvency.
A new form of economic
colonisation, the Treaty will
allow Europe to acquire the
assets of signatory nations while'
wiping out their small and medi-
um sized businesses. Now a well
meaning government would not
sign such a Treaty until it had
crafted a level playing field for
its people; it would certainly
refuse to sign unless there was a
common currency. Why hasn't
ours done so? It's their plan to
assess the Treaty's pros and
cons after they have signed it.
Of course had they more care-
fully considered the issues they
would have seen that the
Hawksbill Creek Agreement
(the "HCA") presents a special
challenge which demands a
studied position on the Treaty
to be taken before it is signed,
not after.
In 1955 the Bahamian gov-
ernment gave the Grand
Bahama Port Authority Ltd.
executive control over the Port
area allowing the Port to grant
licences and the like in Freeport


until 2054. While Government
has unquestioned authority to
sign a treaty enabling persons
to set up business and work
throughout most of the
Bahamas it is questionable
whether it can enter an eco-
nomic treaty over all of the
Bahamas while it is in an exclu-
sive economic contract with the
Port Authority. Legislation enti-
tling persons to do business and
work in and throughout the
Bahamas would nullify the
Port's powers. Even a mere
Treaty to that effect could
amount to an anticipatory
breach of the HCA entitling the
Port to countless sums in dam-
ages. If the Government signs
the Treaty next month as it says
it will then we shall have to wait
and see if the Port sues imme-
diately for an anticipatory
breach or if it waits for legisla-
tion giving the treaty legal effect
and allowing the Port to sue for
derogation from grant. The lat-
ter allows for damages on a
much grander scale.
In the end, whether the gov-
ernment signs the Treaty or not
may be irrelevant save foi (the
Port and) determining whether
the Ingraham administration is
serving the Bahamian people
or other interests. Article 20(8)
of the constitution obliges the
government to create impartial
and independent tribunals for
the hearing of disputes. If gov-
ernment vests us with rights and
obligations, it becomes consti-
tutionally bound to ensure that
we have access to its courts for
adjudicating such rights. Since
the EU's court is not under our
constitution, a referendum to
amend the constitution will like-
ly be needed.
Thanks to the foresight of our
Constitutional draftsmen, even
if government signs the treaty
we will likely have a referen-
dum on whether we partner
with EJufpe or pt, 'pS 19obad4)
these constitutional heroes, are
not so well known. After EPA
they should be.-

Reginald Ferguson will be
addressing business owners
in the Carmichael Road
area on Monday during a
business and crime preven-
tion strategy town meeting.
The meeting, which will
take place at the Super Val-
ue Training Centre in the
Golden Gates Shopping
Centre from 10am to 12pm,
is a joint initiative by the
Carmichael Road Police
Station and the organisation
Kingdom Women in Busi-
ness.
KWIB Founder Melisa
Hall and KWIB executive
member Charlene Paul will
also be providing expertise
on the legal and financial
side of business, respective-
ly.
Representatives from the
Royal Bahamas Police
Force will be in attendance
including officer in charge
of the Carmichael Road Sta-
tion, Superintendent Wayne
Miller. Chief Superinten-
dent Glenn Miller of the
Central Detective Unit will
discuss crime prevention
techniques while Inspector
Sandra Miller is expected to
provide insight into coun-
terfeit money.
Rupert Roberts, CEO of
Super Value Food Stores
will focus on best practices
for hiring and an attorney
from Yeshua International,
who is also a respected
financier, will tackle busi-
ness systems and control.
"In this day and age it is
essential for business own-
ers to be very savvy in ways
to protect themselves and
their employees," said Ms
Hall, who will be discussing
landlord and tenant Issues.
"With so many businesses
being in the Carmichael
Road area, we felt they
deserved to have the oppor-
tunity to speak directly with
leading officers and consid-
er applying some of the
items we plan to discuss in
our presentations"


many factors of the environ-
ment thus allowing us to pro-
duce vegetables more efficient-
S ly and more per square foot,"
said Mr Hauber.
Lucavan's system does not
use soil. Vegetables are grown
in a substrate. Nutrients are pro-
ivded in the water.
T "This is one way of respond-
ing to poor soil conditions in
the Bahamas going to hydro-
ponics." Mr Hauber said.
"Here. we can quadruple what
S an average farmer can do."
A justifiede" concern of buy-
ers, he said, has been the incon-
* sistencN in the supply of local
produce.
'"I am game to buy local pro-
duce," he explained, "but once


I buy from you for about three
or four weeks, it just disappears.
That doesn't do me any good. I
have a hundred people coming
for dinner, I need tomatoes
every night.
"So. that has been a struggle
on the Bahamian agricultural
scene. A greenhouse would
allow you to be more consis-
tent. It's not a miracle cure but
it's one more tool %we can use
here."
Farmers Association presi-
dent Mr Gaitor found the tour
"'very exciting". "It showed us
that with a greenhouse opera-
tion we can increase our yield
and we can extend the season
on certain crops that can easily
Sbe grown in. North Andros.!'..

CHILDREN from the
Grant's Town and St Thomas
Moore areas now have the
chance to improve their read-
ing and math skills thanks to a
donation to the Salvation Army.
The Citi Foundation and the
Lyford Cay Foundation recent-
ly donated a pair of grants
totalling nearly $50,000 to the
Army to establish a new edu-
cational programme aimed at
improving children's literary
and mathematical skills. $25,000
was donated by Citi for the pur-
chase of new and upgraded
computer equipment and
$22,000 was donated by the
Lyford Cay Foundation for the
purchase of, and training in,
AutoSkill Reading and Math
software.
Designed to raise a child's lit-
erary or math proficiency by
two grade levels in only 25
hours of training, the software
has been a huge hit with local
communities, the Army said.
Comprised of a variety of
vibrant.graphical literary and
math exercises, the software
allows the children to have fun
and immerse themselves into
the software's world while
simultaneously learning. Exer-
cises include sound and symbol
associations, fill-in-the-blanks
and equations. If the child is
unable to read the instructions
or understand the meaning of
a word, an oral description can


assist them.
Grade five student Jakota
Johnson said she loves the pro-
gramme, and is having so much
fun with that he seems to forget
he is learning at the same time.
"We have great respect for
the work The Salvation Army
does in our community," said
Margaret Butler, Citi Country
Officer for the Bahamas and
the Cayman Islands. "There is
such a need for programmes
like this to enhance reading and
math skills that are the corner-
stone of learning. We are
delighted to support a pro-
gramme that fills the gap for
children in our country who
require assistance in mastering
these skills. We applaud the
Army's efforts in this commu-
nity based programme".
Suzy Robinson, chairman of
gifts and grants with the Lyford
Cay Foundation, offered a sim-
ilar sentiment: "Education is so
important to the development
of the country. Helping these
children raise their reading and
math skills to their respective
grade level will help them
achieve so much. We're proud
of the Salvation Army for
undertaking this programme."
The AutoSkill programme is
available through the After-
school Programme at both the
Mackey Street and Grant's
Town Salvation Army locations.
The software automatically


scales itself to an appropriate
skill level regardless of the age
of the student, enabling anyone
to increase their literacy or
mathematical capability.
After-school program admin-
istrator at the Salvation Army,
Damon Bradshaw, personally
visited the local communities to
recruit students for the pro-
gramme, and says the response
has been tremendous. "Parents
have been extremely willing to
have their children participate,
and have been very enthusiastic
about this programme. We've
had to turn students away
because of space requirements,
but I doubt we'll have any trou-
ble filling the next session."
"We are so, so grateful to
both Citi and the Lyford Cay
Foundation for their support of
this programme," said Major
Lester Ferguson, divisional
commander of the Salvation
Army in the Bahamas. "They
understand how important pro-
grammes like this are to our
youth. We're not just teaching
the children math and reading,
but also educating them for the
future in all aspects of life."


IL-if


Competing in the decidedly non-glamorous world of the entry-
level subcompact, the Kia Rio isn't the penalty box one might
first assume. Although the first-generation Rio had little in its
favor other than a long warranty, last year's rebirth of that model
produced a car miles ahead of its forebear in terms of
performance, driving dynamics, comfort and cabin refinement.
With the new Rio, Kia's engineers and designers produced a
small car that's pleasant to drive as well as loaded with features,
especially those of the safety ilk.

"I want to see more a rela-
tionship between the Bahamas
and Australia and of course, the
Chamber of Commerce is just
one element of what we are try-
ing to achieve in improving the
links and contact between the
peoples."
Chamber of Commerce pres-
ident Dionisio D'Aguilar led
the discussions.
Mr D'Aguilar said that there
are a number of significant
areas in which the Bahamas can
benefit from Australia, chief
among which is tourism. "Aus-
tralia is a very successful nation
with a population of 22 million
people.
"I think its important to note
that Australia, as a country has
really devised a unique formula
for making people, especially
those from the Asia market feel
comfortable in their country,
and I think that there is a lot
which the Bahamas as a tourism
destination can learn from this,"
Mr D'Aguilar. .
Khaalis Rolle, first vice-pres-
ident of the Chamber of Com-


merce, pointed out that quite a
number of Bahamians are
investing in Australia.
"Bahamians are interested in
Australia, just as Australia is
interested in the Bahamas," he
said.
Gershan Major, the Cham-
ber's second vice-president, surg-
gested a possible further deep-
ening of relations between the
two countries through a student
exchange programme at the ter-
tiary level.
"I see a tremendous poten-
tial for Australia to possibly
work with the tertiary level
institutions here in the
Bahamas," he said.
Also in attendance were
Philip Simon, executive direc-
tor, along with the Chamber's
Board of Directors Carolyn
Mbncur, Odley Aritis and
Osbourne Stuart.
The portfolio of High Com-
missioner Designate Kentwell,
who is based in Trinidad and

* By LINDSAY THOMPSON

MEMBERS of Parliament,
Senators and other government
officials this week participated

European Union.

Oil soars above $142 per barrel


* By DAVID MCHUGH
AP Business Writer

LONDON (AP) Oil prices climbed to a
record above $142 a barrel Friday as the U.S.
dollar's protracted slump and falling stock mar-
kets prompted investors to take refuge in oil.
Prices were also lifted Thursday after OPEC's
president said crude prices could rise well above
$150 a barrel this year and Libya said it may cut
oil production.
Light, sweet crude for August delivery rose as
high as $142.26 a barrel before pulling back to
$141.40, up $1.76 in electronic trading on the
New York Mercantile Exchange by early after-
noon European time. The contract Thursday rose
$5.09 to settle at a record $139.64.
The previous trading record for a front-month
contract was $139.89, set on June 16.
The rise follows a sharp fall in U.S. stocks on
Thursday and in Asia on Friday. "We need to
observe that financial flows were leaving the equi-
ty markets as those markets are breaking below
their support levels," said analysts at Petromatrix


in Switzerland. "When money has nowhere to
go, it is parked in commodities as it is one of the
few investment instruments that actually rises
the more money you pour into it."
The dollar also slipped against key currencies,
as U.S. data showed sluggish economic growth
and pointed to a struggling labor market. Oil is
priced in U.S. dollars, and some investors buy
oil contracts to protect the value of their assets
against accelerating inflation when the dollar
falls.
"The dollar movements caused the surge ii oil
pricing and the bullish trend remains intact," said
Victor Shum, an energy analyst with Purvin &
Gertz in Singapore. "The oil market is subject to
further spikes in the coming weeks."
On Friday, the dollar was unchanged in early
afternoon European trading, with a euro buying
$1.5782.
Also driving crude futures higher were remarks
by Chakib Khelil, president of the Organization
of the Petroleum Exporting Countries, who said
Thursday he believes oil prices could rise to
between $150 and $170 a barrel this summer.


Khelil also said prices will decline later in the
year, and aren't likely to reach $200 a barrel.
Khelil joined a long list of forecasters who have
made predictions of sharply higher prices this
year. Each new forecast such as Goldman
Sachs' recent prediction that prices could rise as
high as $200 causes a jump in prices as specu-
lative buyers are drawn into the market.
Meanwhile, the head of Libya's national oil
company said the country may cut crude pro-
duction because the oil market is well supplied,
according to news reports.
Addison Armstrong, director of market
research at Tradition Energy in Stamford, Con-
necticut, said in a research note that Shokri
Ghanem, the nation's top oil official, has declined
to say when a decision would be made on whether
to lower production, or give any indication of
the size of the cut under consideration.
But analysts expressed skepticism over the
comments out of Libya, saying the current level of
oil prices provides an incentive for producers not
to cut output.
"I doubt that any real effort in cutting output


would be forthcoming, considering that pricing
continues to hit new records," Shum said.
"There's no economic reason to cut output at
this time so it's just talk."
Oil prices have more than doubled over the
past year on concerns about rising demand in
fast-growing economies such as China and India,
and supply disruptions in the Middle East and
Nigeria.
Analysts have also attributed oil's rapid climb
to speculative buying, with traders jumping into
the market purely on the expectation that futures
will continue to rise.
"Even though we have continued to see weak-
ening demand in the U.S., other markets in the
developing world still show growth," Shum said.
"The tight market has empowered speculators
to invest in oil and the oil market is subject to fur-
ther spikes in the coming weeks."
In other Nymex trading, heating oil futures
rose 6.55 cents to $3.9489 a gallon (3.8 liters)
while gasoline prices rose 4.62 cents to $3.5575 a
gallon. Natural gas futures rose 12.4 cents to
$13.372 per 1,000 cubic feet.


Fear dominates Zimbabwe's



'sham' presidential election


* By ANGUS SHAW
AP Wrtiter

HARARE, Zimbabwe (AP)
Marshals led voters to
polling stations and bands of
government supporters
harassed people in the street
Friday as Zimbabwe held an
internationally discredited, one-
candidate presidential runoff
marked by intimidation.
Opposition leader Morgan
Tsvangirai, who withdrew from
the runoff citing a campaign of
state-sponsored violence, said
the results of the election would
"reflect only the fear of the peo-
*ple of Zimbabwe."
Dozens of opposition sup-
porters have been killed and
thousands of people injured pri-
or to Friday's vote.
In contrast to the excitement
and hope for change that
marked the first round of voting
in March, this time a defiant
President Robert Mugabe is the
only candidate. The election is
expected only to deepen the
nation's political and economic
crisis.
"The whole election is a
farce," opposition party trea-


surer Roy Bennett told Asso-
ciated Press Television News
from exile in neighboring South
Africa.
Tsvangirai's name remained
on the ballot because electoral
officials say his withdrawal Sun-
day came too late.
Mugabe supporters appeared
to be using intimidation to
orchestrate a massive turnout
in hopes of making his victory
appear credible.
About 20 paramilitary police
in riot gear deployed in a cen-
tral Harare park Friday, then
began patrolling the city in a
truck. Militant Mugabe sup-
porters roamed the streets,
singing revolutionary songs,
heckling people and asking why
they were not voting.
"I've got no option but to go
and vote so that I can be safe,"
explained a young woman sell-
ing tomatoes.
Mugabe appeared jovial as
he voted Friday in Harare.
When a reporter asked'how the
84-year-old president was feel-
ing, he replied "very fit, very
optimistic, upbeat and hungry."
Turnout appeared to vary
widely. In the capital's densely
populated Mbare suburb, lines


built up at polling stations as
voters arrived in groups, led by
apparent party marshals carry-
ing books filled with names. In
one side street, names were'
being called and ticked off as
people headed into a polling
station.
Up to 300 people waited at
one station in Mbare. But else-
where, the two or three voters
were outnumbered by an intim-
idating police presence.
"The people are reluctant to
talk," Pan African Parliament
spokesman Khalid A. Dahab
told The Associated Press.
"Some of them are saying 'We
were told to come here.' It's just
not normal. There's a lot of ten-
sion."
State radio acknowledged
that voters were only "trickling"
into stations in the countryside,
attributing the low turnout to
chilly weather. And in High-
field, a densely populated
Harare suburb, fewer than a
dozen voters waited outside
polling stations where hundreds
had lined up for the first round.
Assistant Police Commis-
sioner Wayne Bvudzijena told
state radio that the number of
police at polling stations had
been doubled to "guarantee
peace and security." He had no
reports of violence by mid-
morning, but said any violence
would be met with "the full
force of the law."
In -an e-mail voting day mes-
sage, Tsvangirai said he expect-
ed voters to be threatened, to
be told to record their ballot
numbers and to be filmed as
they voted. He advised them
not to resist.


"God knows what is in your
heart. Don't risk your lives,"
the opposition leader wrote
from the Dutch Embassy,
where he has sought refuge.
In middle-class Greendale
suburb, Eunice Maboreke came
out of a polling station but
would not reveal her choice.
"My vote is my secret," she
told a reporter.
One resident, Livingstone
Gwaze, said he voted for
Mugabe.
"Things, will get better. There
is darkness before light," he
said.
Kubatana, a Web site forum
for independent Zimbabwean
human rights groups, said
Mugabe supporters were man-
ning illegal roadblocks Friday
on main streets and highways
where police were not present.
The move aimed to crush any
attempted election boycott and
to stage-manage a high election
turnout.
\ Riot police and regular offi-
:cers kept up their roadblocks
on approaches to the South
African Embassy in Harare,
apparently to keep any more
opposition members from flee-
ing there to escape election-
related violence. At least 200
people were already at the
embassy, many camping with
blankets and bundles of belong-
ings in the embassy parking lot.
World leaders have dismissed
the runoff as a sham. Nigeria
became the latest African
nation to call for its postpone-
ment. Italy said Friday it will
urge the European Union to
withdraw its ambassadors from
Zimbabwe.

YONGBYON, North
Korea (AP) North Korea
destroyed the most visible
symbol of its nuclear weapons
program Friday, blasting
apart the cooling tower at its
main atomic reactor in a sign
of its commitment to stop
making plutonium for atomic
bombs.
An explosion at the base of
the cylindrical structure sent
the tower collapsing into a'
cloud of white and gray
smoke that billowed into blue
skies as international journal-
ists and diplomats looked on,
according to video footage
filmed by international video
news agency Associated Press
Television News.
The demolition of the 60-
foot-tall cooling tower at the
North's main reactor complex
is a response to U.S. conces-
sions after the North deliv-
ered a declaration Thursday
of its nuclear programs to be
dismantled
"This is a very important
step in the disablement
process and I think it puts us
in a good position to move
into the next phase," said
Sung Kim, the U.S. State
Department's top expert on
the Koreas who attended the
demolition.
Kim shook hands with a
North Korean official follow-
ing the tower's tumble to the
ground.
In its first reaction to the
developments this week,
North Korea's Foreign Min-
istry welcomed Washington's
decision to take the country
off the U.S. trade and sanc-
tions blacklists.
"The U.S. measure should
lead to a complete and all-out
withdrawal of its hostile poli-
cy toward (the North) so that
the denuclearization process
can proceed smoothly," the
ministry said in a statement
carried by the official Korean
Central News Agency.


The symbolic tower explo-
sion came just 20 months after
Pyongyang shocked the world
by detonating a nuclear bomb
in an underground test to con-
firm its status as an atomic
power. The nuclear blast
spurred an about-face in the
U.S. hard-line policy against
Pyongyang, leading to the
North's first steps to scale
back its nuclear weapons
development since the reac-
tor became operational in
1986.
Last year, the North
switched off the reactor at
Yongbyon, some 60 miles
north of the capital of
Pyongyang, and it already has
begun disabling the facility
under the watch of U.S.
experts so that it cannot easi-
ly be restarted.
The destruction of the cool-
ing tower, which carries off
waste heat to the atmosphere,
is another step forward but
not the most technically sig-
nificant, because it is a sim-
ple piece of equipment that
would be easy to rebuild.
Still, the demolition offers
the most photogenic moment
yet in the disarmament nego-
tiations that have dragged on
for more than five years and
suffered repeated deadlocks
and delays.
Secretary of State Con-
doleezza Rice said the tow-
er's destruction would mark
a step toward disablement,
something that has been
ongoing for many months to
prevent the North from mak-
ing more plutonium for
bombs.
North Korea's nuclear dec-
laration, which was delivered
six months later than the
country promised and has not
yet been released publicly, is
said to only give the overall
figure for how much plutoni-
um was produced at Yongby-
on but no details of bombs
that may have been made.

turf.
"There's always a special feel-
ing about competing in your
own home waters and, of
course, winning a national
championship is a terrific hon-
our. But to win five of six races
against that level of competi-
tion with people like Jimmy
Lowe, Robert Dunkley and


George Damianos was even
more satisfying. Jimmy is the
2008 Snipe champion and he's
always a tough competitor," he
said.
Mr Martinborough won with
five first place finishes and a
third in the fourth race.
Mr Lowe finished second
with one first place finish, a sec-
ond, two thirds and a fourth.
Mr Damianos came in third,
with two seconds, two thirds
and a fifth place finish and Mr
Dunkley finished fourth with a
second place, a fourth and three
fifth place finishes.
Twenty-six boats sailed in the
fleet with competitors coming


from Abaco and Governor's
Harbour, Eleuthera.
It was the ninth time that Mr
Martinborough sailed away with
the championship and one of
the few times weather cooper-
ated fully, allowing all six races
to be sailed.
"We had a great turn-out but
we could not have done it with-
out the cooperation of every-
one, including the Nassau Yacht
Club which hosted the event,
Francisco deCardenas from the
Royal Nassau Sailing Club who
chaired the Race Committee
and the support of the BSA
(Bahamas Sailing Associa-
tion)," said Mr Martinborough.


Bahamas Realty donated all the
trophies.
The little boats, just under 15
feet in length, often spotted in
the harbour with a single
colourful sail, sometimes serve
as training boats for big boat
skijIpers,' including those like
former Arnerica's Cup champi-
on Ted Turnei. e
