Daylight

hold-up

of bank

is foiled

* By PAUL G TURNQUEST
Tribune Staff Reporter
pturnquest@tribunemedia.net
TWO would-be robbers were
shot by police when their brazen
daylight hold-uppf Scotiabank
on East Street South was foiled
yesterday.
According to eyewitnesses, two
men were seen running towards
the bank wearing masks, one
armed with a shotgun and the
other a handgun shortly after
12.15pm.
The on duty security officer,
upon seeing the men, locked the
bank's door and jumped over the
counter to seek shelter along with
the handful of customers who
were in the bank at the time.
Locking the door however
proved to be only a minor nui-
sance for the burglars who
opened fire on the glass, shatter-
ing it.
The burglars then entered the
bank, and began to take an unde-

the teller's draws. It was during
this time that a squad car with
two women officers in it received
a report of the incident from the
police control room and respond-
ed immediately.

Racial exclusion 'still

an issue in Bahamas'
* By LISA LAWLOR
RACIAL exclusion is'still an issue 35 years after independence
- and according to one academic, white Bahamians must begin to
take a more active part in national life if this is to change.
Associate professor Michael Stevenson told the first lecture in this
year's Distinguished Lecture Series at the College of the Bahamas
that in the traditional view, "the struggle for affirmation within black
racial consciousness and identity resists and represses the pro-
gressive movement towards the construction of racially inclusive
society."
However, he contends that, contrary to this, it is precisely the
"various struggles for the empowerment of black people" which
lead towards "perfect union" in Caribbean countries.

OUTRAGED residents of
Marsh Harbour claim local gov-
eminment officials are responding
too slowly to complaints of
explicit anti-Semitic graffiti
found on a 40-foot container
near the entrance of the corn-
munity.
The container, which is
defaced with the anti-Semitic
phrase "Arbeith Machtfrei,"
meaning "work brings free-
dom" has historical ties to the
infamous concentration camps .
in Dachau; the phrase was
coined as a message to push
Jews to work harder.
Other symbols on the con-
tainer include a swastika, a ref-
erence to Hitler, the words "Bin
Laden," and an image of what
appears to be a person per- RESIDENTS have complained about
forming a sexual act on a sheep. the graffiti on the container
It is estimated that at least 500 people frequent the area daily on
their way from the Marsh Harbour ferry dock. And with summer
vacations in full swing, residents fear that many visitors to the
island who are of Jewish descent may have already seen the taste-
less graffiti on the container.
Sources close to the situation claim that photographs of the
findings were hand delivered last week to Don Cornish, office man-

TOP officials are remaining
quiet on the future of Acting
Deputy Commissioner Christo-
pher McCoy as speculation con-
tinucs il-ggeting that he may
take a top public service job.
lt has been rumoured that Mr
McCoy may soon be named as
the new head of the Road Traf-

Mr Jack Thompson.


When asked in the foyer of
the House of Assembly by The
Tribune yesterday if this will
occur, Mr Tommy Turnquest,
minister of national security,
said he is "unable to confirm"
the rumours.
Mr Thompson, when con-
tacted yesterday at his office,
declined to comment on the
issue after questions were put
to him about his future.

Local government election



process 'an embarrassment'


IF government had run a gen-
eral election the way they pro-
posed to conduct the recent
local government polls, the
Bahamas would have been "the
laughing stock of the world,"
tnglerston MP and PLP chair-
person Glenys Hanna-Martian
said.
She was speaking in the
House of Assembly during her
contribution to the debate on
the Local Government Modifi-
cation of Provisions Act.
The Bill aims, according to
government, to bring to an end
all uncertainty surrounding the*
local government election.
Last week, a court ruled that
the proper process was not fol-
lowed in the run-up to the local
government elections. This led
to elections not going ahead in
nine areas.
"I go so far as to say the
recent local government elec-
tion process has been an embar-
rassment to our people and to
our country," Mrs Hanna-Mar-
tin said.
On June 1, Mrs Hanna-Mar-
tin said she wrote former Min-
ister for Local Government Sid-
ney Collie advising him of the
concerns and urging him not to

act contrary to the law.
The letter was copied to
Prime Minister Hubert Ingra-
ham and the Preliminary Com-
missioner Errol Bethel.
She said that the opposition
tried very hard to make the gov-
ernment understand that what
was being done was 'not only
"unlawful but morally wrong".
"In addition to my aforesaid


letter, I spoke to the minister
several times. I personally alert-
ed the prime minister that there
was a problem brewing," Mrs
Hanna-Martin said.
The Englerston MP said that
the government continued "full
speed ahead" publishing more
and more notices, and showing
an intention to act in an "unlaw-
ful manner".
"Fundamental .changes were
made without due notice to the
electorate and without lawful
basis. The concept of notice is
fundamental to fairness and the
rule of law. I think my summa-
ry of the facts will bear out that
the government has put this
country in this position. If this
had been a general election, we
have been the laughing stock of
the world," Mrs Hanna-Martin
said.
She continued: "And yet
today this honourable house,
the parliament, is now being
required to rectify errors which
I think were quite clear to the


government before the electoral
process ever took place on June
26. This proposed legislation is
yet again an embarrassing chap-
ter in our democratic system.
"We believe this legislation
will in and of itself invite litiga-
tion separate and apart from
any claim voters may have rel-
ative to the conduct of the elec-
tions.
"Even if we concede that this
bill does not contravene any
protection under the law, and
we do not so concede, it is nev-
ertheless unfortunate that the
government has sought to use
the device of refractivity to
thwart the process of democra-
cy. We will now have the
specter in our country, a specter
which our forefathers would
have thought long gone where
parliament is being used to
manipulate the electoral system.
"This will no doubt under-
mine public confidence in the
security of the Local Govern-
ment Act; it may further under-
mine confidence in our machin-
ery of democracy and I believe
taints the process and tramples
upon the rights and exceptions
of our citizens as it relates to
local government," she said.

Mr. Christiaan Sawyer
Managing, Director -of Sunryse Shreddcling Services


Lawyer Leandra Esfakis is taking her battle for government
transparency and accountability a step further by launching an
online petition in the hope of obtaining justice in the death of her 42
year old brother.
Christopher Esfakis died at Doctor's Hospital in 2002, three days
after being admitted for burns from a household accident.
Earlier this year a Coroner's Inquest delivered the verdict that Mr
Esfakis' death was caused by "natural causes with substantive and
significant contribution of medical neglect."
Evidence showed that Christopher received in excess of 60 litres
of fluid over 66 hours and that when he died he. weighed 60 pounds
more than he had when he was admitted.
The Coroner's Court confirmed that Mr Esfakis had an over-90
per cent chance of survival when he was first admitted into the
hospital for treatment. :
A complaint was made to the Hospital and,Healthcare Facilities
Licensing Board, which licenses private medical facilities.
Despite being called upon to investigate Mr Esfakis' death as the
Act which created the board states it is obligated to do the board
has launched no investigation. -
"According to the Act, the object of the board is to ensure the
delivery of quality healthcare to the Bahamian public. In fulfill-
ment of this obligation the board has a duty to investigate fatalities
at the hospitals and clinics which it licenses," reads the petition.
Addressed to Prime minister Hubert Ingraham and health minister
Dr Hubert Minnis, it claims that the government-appointed board
has "wilfully ignored" the complaint against Doctor's Hospital and
now wants private clinics to be "totally deregulated."
It calls on the government to "ensure accountability under the law
for citizens accessing the healthcare sector."
Noting that "every human being has a right to life" the petition
urges.the government to "ensure that healthcare regulations are
enforced to improve'palieint survival rates."'
"The board's legal and professional obligations must be carried out
so that the right to life of Bahamian citizens can be protected," it
says.
"Alternatively, we advocate the establishment of a National
Healthcare Commission with the power to investigate complaints
from the private or public healthcare sectors, and to implement
measures to address failings in the delivery of healthcare," it says.
And in order that the public interest is protected, and "indepen-
dence and impartiality" are preserved in the board's workings, the
petition asks that a member of this proposed commission "be
appointed from an internationally recognized medical accredita-
tion organisation."
So far, 10 people have signed up to the petition, which appears at:

Reports:

Permanent

secretaries

to be shuffled
REPORTS reaching The Tri-
bune yesterday suggested that a
number of permanent secretaries
stationed throughout the public
service are about to be shuffled
by Prime Minister Hubert Ingra-
ham.
Amongst those to be moved
are the current Permanent Sec-
retary of Tourism and Aviation,
Archie Nairn, who is expected to
be moved to the Ministry of
Youth, Sports and Culture; and
Camille Johnson, the permanent
secretary in the Ministry of Hous-
ing, who is said to be moving to
the Ministry of Health.
Hyacinth Pratt is also
rumoured to be moving from the
Public Service Ministry to the
Ministry of Tourism.
The PS of Lands and Local
Government Harrison Thomp-
son is also reportedly scheduled
to be moved, but his ultimate
posting is still unknown.
It was also whispered that Ani-
ta Bernard will be called out of
retirement to take up the post of
PS at the Ministry of Works.

Support for

'Brave' Davis

joining the

PLP deputy

leader race
* By TANEKA THOMPSON
Tribune Staff Reporter
tthompson@tribunemedia.net
POTENTIAL candidate for
deputy leader of the Progressive
Liberal Party Obie Wilchcombe
welcomed the possible,addition
of Philip 'Brave' Davis to the race
yesterday. During an interview
with The Tribune, the MP for
West End and Bimini reaffirmed
his intention to vie for the post
once current deputy leader Cyn-
thia 'Mother' Pratt steps down at
the next party convention.
The former journalist also
spoke highly of his possible con-
tender and said while they may
have different visions for the PLP,
both parliamentarians have the
best interest of the party at heart.
"Brave is a senior member of
our party having been in parlia-
ment for a while and he is an out-
standing lawyer. We spoke just
recently; we talk every time we
have an opportunity because we
share the same objectives: to
make our organisation much
stronger and the fact that we are
both strong PLP supporters
means we want to work towards
becoming the next government
of the Bahamas and to do that
you're going to need all the good
hands on deck working together.
"And he is, I think, a very com-
petent individual; I may have a
different approach to how we
ought to restructure and a vision
for the future than he does."
Mr Wilchcombe's intent to run
for the post of second-in-com-
mand of the PLP has stirred spec-
ulation about whether he wants to
someday lead the party.
"Not necessarily so," he said,
when asked if being deputy leader
was a natural step towards assum-
ing the PLP's reigns. "It doesn't
mean that at all. Firstly you must
prove to be a good team player;
you must be supportive of the
organisation and bring something
to the leadership that will qualify
you for that next step. That does-
n't mean it's going to happen -
becoming deputy is not a natural
progression. You have to earn
that along the way, some individ-
uals never move from being
deputies. But while you're there,
you have an opportunity to put
on display your abilities, your tal- .
ents, you have an ability to go
and win support and if you do
then I think the party supporters
will give you an opportunity to
make that next step, but its not
natural.

Collie resignation sets



new 'standard of conduct'



in the Bahamas, says PM


* By KARIN HERIG
Tribune Staff Reporter
kherig@tribunemedia.net

THE resignation of Sidney
Collie over the errors made in
this year's local government
election process has set a new
standard of conduct in the
Bahamas, Prime Minister
Hubert Ingraham said in the
House of Assembly yesterday.
Mr Ingraham made these
comments shortly before par-
liament passed an Act which
seeks to remedy the mistakes
made in this year's local gov-
ernment elections and to restore
certainty to the process.
He explained that the Act,
which modifies the provisions
of the Local Government Act
for this year, will facilitate the
holding of local government
elections in the nine Family
Island Districts where they were
not held on June 26.
Mr Ingraham said that he
believes that the amendments
will restore "certainty" to the
local government elections. He
added that he does not believe
that elections in the nine
remaining districts can go ahead
without the amendments.
"There must not be uncer-
tainty about an election and its
results," and all steps should be
taken to ensure this, he said.
The Act now permits elec-
tions in the remaining nine dis-
tricts to be held by August 31,
2008.
It will also permit the period
to be extended to December 31,
2008 in case of a natural disas-
ter.
Further, the Act allows for
government officials elected in
2005, in those districts where
no election was held, to contin-
ue in office until a new slate is
elected.
The term of office of persons
elected or appointed on or
before August 31 will end in
June 2011, as will the term of


office of every other local gov-
ernment district councillor,
town committee member or
board member elected or
appointed to office on June 26,
he said.
The Act provides for all nom-
inations of persons in those nine
districts to be preserved, while
also allowing for new nomina-
tions.
Mr Ingraham said that local
government elections were not
held in nine districts on the
scheduled date due to one or
more of the following reasons:
"Failure to publish the notice
of election in the gazette as the
law requires; failure to publish
other notices required by law
in a timely manner; failure to
take account of polling division
changes made in 2007; changes
made in Bimini and Hope
Town districts and in others for
similar reasons."
Mr Ingraham said that Mr
Collie, the MP for Baillou Hills
and former Minister of Local
Government, accepted ministe-
rial responsibility for these fail-


ONE of Abaco's most outspoken local politi-
cians has quit, claiming that underhand meth-
ods were used to turn Haitian voters against
her.
Mrs Yvonne Key resigned from local politics
shortly after being sworn in as a member of the
Marsh Harbour-Spring City town committee
this week. She told The Tribune that she dis-
approved of the way party politics had been
introduced into the local government process.
"I am out of it for good," she added, "This is
not an idle gesture. I have made my stand and
I will live by that."
Mrs Key, a vocal opponent of Abaco's Hait-
ian shanty communities, has been a local coun-
cillor for 12 years.
She has been widely praised for unparal-
leled contributions to her community, including
beautification projects and improved public
facilities.
A supporter said: "She has done more than
anyone else to make this town better. She was
behind the Goombay Park, the Memorial Park,


ures and resigned from office.
The prime minister said that
for this action he commends Mr
Collie and thanks him.
The Baillou Hills MP, he
added, has now set a new stan-
dard in the Bahamas which will
guide members of the current
government and future ones.
Mr Ingraham said that his
government now wishes to
cause elections to be held in the
affected nine districts in as short
a time as is possible.
"(The Act) also seeks to cor-
rect the mistakes and problems
caused by the failure to publish
in a timely manner due notice
of the election and other notices
required by law in certain dis-
tricts and town areas in the
gazette of the date for the hold-
ing of local government elec-
tions," he said.
The Act further preserves all
contracts and payments made
by district councils, town com-
mittees, boards, family island
administrators or agencies or
departments of government in
districts and town areas in which
elections were not conducted
on June 26 during the interim
period.
"If these amendments are not
passed into law, what would be
the basis and legal authority for
the exercise of the powers
entrusted by law to local gov-
ernment? I suspect none," he
said.
Mr Ingraham emphasised
that the Act is not intended to >
repeal the existing law as to the
time within which local govern-
ment elections must be held.
The Act only applies to elec-
tions for the year 2008, he said.
The nine districts in which
local government elections are
yet to be held, are:
West Grand Bahama, Bimini,
Hope Town, Mangrove Cay,
Central Andros, Exuma, Ack-
lins, Crooked Island and Long
Cay, and Mayaguana.


the community library and much, much more.
"She worked tirelessly for the good of the
people and we have much to thank her for."
Mrs Key served eight years as chairman of
the Marsh Harbour town committee.
"Certain people want to run local govern-
ment like national politics, but that's not the
way it should be done," said Mrs Key.
"It's not about the PLP and FNM. It is a
group that gets together to work for their town-
ship."
She said underhand methods had been used
to turn the Haitian vote against her. But she
said her opposition to the slum communities
was based on her desire for Haitian immigrants
to blend with Bahamian society, rather than
live in sub-standard conditions.
Mrs Key has campaigned for years against
the spread of both The Mud and Pigeon Pea
shanty communities in Marsh Harbour.
She said they worked against the interests of
Bahamian residents of the area, and kept the
immigrants themselves in a state of squalor.

Energy experts puzzled over oil prices


MADRID, Spain (AP) As crude soared-
to a new record, the head of the Internation-
al Energy Agency declared that the world
was in the grip of an "oil shock," and the
president of OPEC acknowledged he could
not say whether prices would flatten out or
continue to soar.
The comments by IEA chief Nobuko Tana-
ka, OPEC chief and Algerian Energy minis-
ter'Chakib Khelil and other industry lead-
ers at the 19th World Petroleum conference
reflected the concern surrounding record oil
prices that seem ready to spike higher.
An IEA report released at the conference
confirmed what most consumers fear: that
supplies of oil will remain tight, whether for
cooking fires in the poorest countries or pow-
ering cars and cooling or heating homes in the
richest. And that's despite record prices and
reduced demand as costly crude dampens
the world's oil hunger.
Reflecting the world's oil price doldrums,
light, sweet crude for August delivery rose 97
cents to settle at a new high of $140.97 a bar-
rel on the New York Mercantile Exchange.
Prices at one point rose as high as $143.33,
just 34 cents shy of Monday's trading record.
"We are clearly in the third oil price
shock," declared Tanaka, comparing the
effects to periods of soaring prices in the
1970s and 1980s.
But he suggested there is less of a likeli-
hood of a quick fix this time.
"Those price peaks forced consumers into
saving oil" and oil companies to look for new
wells, said Tanaka, but now "the biggest ener-
gy savings have been made (and) ... the easy
oil outside (of) a few countries has been
found."
His agency's report said the world's esti-
mated daily oil needs would rise from 86.87
million barrels this year to 94.14 million bar-
rels in 2013 less than anticipated in its
2007 report because of skyrocketing prices.
The energy agency predicted producers
would be able to meet world needs but
noted that supply will exceed projected
demand only by. a daily 2 million barrels, a
relatively thin cushion.
. Tanaka said that tight supplies despite a
price surge that would normally lead to
increased availability came as a "shock."
His comments reflected the high-level
bedevilment at the meeting about what is
causing prices to sizzle.

. In Jeddah, Saudi Arabia, earlier this month,
the kingdom said it would add 200,000 barrels
per day in July to a 300,000 barrel per day
production increase it first announced in May,
raising total daily output to 9.7 million barrels.
Production increases normally check prices,
but the market has shrugged off the Saudi
gesture and set several new records since.
Khelil, the OPEC president, offered no
solace to consumers.
"We are very uncertain about the oil prices
since it's highly volatile and we don't really
know whether it is going to be stabilizing or
going to lower levels," he told delegates. "But
everybody agrees that oil prices are too high."
"There is a lot of uncertainty about
demand," Khelil said. "Consequently there is
a lot of uncertainty about the decision of
investing" the tens ot billions of dollars need-
ed to make additional crude and refined sup-
plies available.
He identified the main driver of prices as
the weak U.S. dollar and the linked subprime
crisis in America; geopolitical tensions, and
increased emphasis on U.S. bioethanol pro-
duction which he suggested diverted pro-
duction of diesel and led to shortages.
Urging the world to brace for a "really big
reshuffle" in energy expectations, Christophe
de Margerie, CEO of French energy giant
Total SA, said he expected oil production to
plateau in just 12 years at 94 million barrels a
day less then 10 million barrels more than
available now. And he warned the forecast
was optimistic.
"We will have to fight against the natural
decline of (present) oil fields," he told the
same forum Khelil attended. "It will not go
smoothly."
Producers and refiners in the Spanish cap-
ital are also looking to find answers not only
on how to ensure stable supply, but also on
doing it in a way that minimizes emissions of
the greenhouse gases believed to cause glob-
al warming. Still the primary concern at the
meeting was over availability and prices that
have been bouncing from record to record
over the past few months a worry echoed
by de Margerie.
Consumers worldwide "expect a better
environment," he said. "But they expect first
access to energy."

Answers needed



to questions over



local government



election process


EDITOR, The Tribune.
PLEASE find below my
perspective on the recent
events. I'd like to see this pub-
lished in your daily.
Glenys Hanna-Martin,
Chairman of the Progressive
Liberal Party, in a bi-partisan
initiative alerted the Minister
for Local Government by
echoing the concerns of com-
munity members in the family
islands around the legality and
fairness of the last minute
amendments governing the
local government elections.
In this ongoing exchange,
the Minister at no point enter-
tained the possible validity of
her position and the sound
perspective of those locals.
In overseeing and manag-
ing matters of this nature, the
Minister by practice and
requirement seeks legal con-
sultation from either the
Attorney General or legal
experts who serve as consul-
tants to the Government.
As we have seen in recent
days, it has been made clear as
evidenced in public court doc-
uments, His Lordship along
with the Attorney General
confirmed that the Minister
acted in haste and abused the
, authority of his office relying
on a clause in the legislation
that was misinterpreted and
exploited to support his
stance.


When I reflect on the events
as they unfolded and continue
to unfold, several questions
come to mind:
Why was the Minister so
unwilling to conduct a thor-
ough review of complainants'
position?
What was the rush and why
would the Minister consider
honouring the timing of the
elections a more significant
priority over and against
ensuring smooth, fair and legal
elections?
In a governing party that
strives to build its reputation
on transparency, why would
the Minister oppose in a
democracy the right to 'Due
Process' in light of the chal-
lenges?
How is it with all the legal
resources at his disposal did
he come to a conclusion that
reinforced his willingness to
take such action that later
proved completely bogus?
Why would the Minister
allow this to escalate to the
courts after being warned fail-
ure to respond and consider
the positions of those con-
cerned that this would be their
last measure for recourse?
Is the Minister blinded by
his apparent arrogance to the


point he might possibly com-
mit such acts only to embar-
rass his political party and gov-
ernment of which he is an
integral part?
Above all, this nags at me
most, even if the Minister,
according to his flawed inter-
pretation of the law, was
proven to be acting within the
scope of his authority and
rightfully according to the leg-
islation, as a government min-
ister, elected by the people to
act in the best interest of the
people, what did he see him-
self doing in that vein?
How would these last
minute amendments serve the
best interests of the people
who are directly impacted by
his decisions?
Honourable Minister, the
constituents of Marathon and
every citizen impacted by this
front to democracy would
love to hear from you!

The gall of some Opposition members!


EDITOR, The Tribune.
WHAT unmitigated gall
some of these people in the
Opposition have! They have
no sense of shame that the last
General Elections were the
worst of any which have taken
place in The Bahamas.
The Elections were delayed
until the last minute.
There were boundary
changes in several constituen-
cies and hardly anyone knew
where one constituency began
or ended.
Normally, the boundary
plan would have been pub-
lished in the Gazette, so that
people knew ahead of voting
which constituency they were
being placed.

No charges yet in connection




with Chinese Embassy robbery


Police say matter under active investigation


ACTING COMMISSIONER of
Police Reginald Ferguson


* By TANEKA
THOMPSON
Tribune Staff Reporter
tthompson@tribunemedia.net
ALTHOUGH a suspect has
been questioned by police in con-
nection with last month's robbery
of thousands of dollars from the
Chinese Embassy on Village
Road, no one has been charged.
However, top police officials
said the matter is still under active
investigation.
"A suspect was interviewed,
questioned and we will continue
our investigations until it is
resolved (but) no one has been


FNM: Cabinet shuffle


charged at this time," Acting
Assistant Commissioner of Crime
Raymond Gibson. told The Tri-
bune.
Acting Commissioner of Police
Reginald Ferguson also said that
while a suspect had yet to be
charged the "investigation is still
being carried out."
The Tribune was first to report
last month that more than $4,000
was stolen from the embassy in
mid-June while a Defence Force
officer was standing guard.
The Tribune understands the
officer is the brother of a parlia-
mentarian.
. The daring robbery reported-
ly captured on the embassy's secu-
rity cameras prompted the Min-
istry of National Security to
review all RBDF security proto-
cols.
Retired Defence Force officer
Harold Bosfield said the RBDF
has sufficient security measures
in place, but argued that they are
ineffective without diligent offi-
cers.
"'There is sufficient security in
place right now I would think, but
the ministry is saying that it is try-
ing to review the security mea-
sures. To me that's ironic because
it's just like putting the rat to look
after the cheese.
"As a former Defence Force
officer who was in charge of the
Detention Centre and other out-
posts, I know we have the securi-
ty measures in place but it's just
up to the individual (officer) to
follow through and do his or her
job."
Mr Bosfield, who last served as
chief regulator/prosecutor in the
Administration Department of
the RBDF, thinks the matter
should be left up to internal pros-
ecution.
"The public has this perception
that in the Defence Force, when
an officer or personnel do things,
they get away with it and being a
former prosecutor in the admin-
istration of the. RBDF and also
like I said a regulator you know,
that's not the case. And if the gov-


ernment lets the system work, let
the commodore and his team
work, we will see results.
"But you got to let the com-


modore do his job," said Mr
Bosfield, who retired after serving
more than 27 years with the
RBDF,

restoring trust in govt

THE Cabinet shuffle by Prime Minister Hubert Ingraham is
a sign of the Free National Movement's dedication to restoring
trust in government, the FNM party maintains.
Senator Anthony Musgrove, deputy chairman of the FNM,
said the re-allocation of ministerial positions compliments the
experiences, qualifications and skills of each minister to the
greatest effect as it has been implemented just one year into the
government's five year term.

Confidence
He said: "It is unquestionable that the prime minister con-
tinues to demonstrate the highest degree of confidence in each
of his cabinet colleagues and Bahamians could be assured that
the FNM administration remains focused on building a Bahamas
that will positively impact this and future generations of Bahami-
ans."
The PM's objectives to improve the delivery of'public services,
promote Bahamian heritage and guard the environment, alle-
viate poverty, improve education and public security and make.
affordable health insurance available will all be assisted by the,
reshuffle, Senator Musgrove maintains.
He said: "The FNM clearly understands the concept and:
implementation of governmental and ministerial responsibilities
and we applaud the Rt Hon Hubert Ingraham in showing what
decisive and result-orientated leadership is all about."

praise for capturing the men.
The police recovered three
weapons from the burglars, one
shotgun and two handguns,
along with a bag of money that is
believed to be the property of
Scotiabank. However, reports
that the burglars were wearing
bulletproof vests at the time of
the robbery remained unsub-
stantiated up to press time.
Speaking with members of the
media at the scene yesterday,
AAC Hanna saluted the officers
for their "stellar performance."
"It sends a clear message of
the Royal Bahamas Police Force
(RBPF), our training, our
courage, our loyalty, our integri-
ty, that we are ready to police
our country, and it also sends a
strong signal to persons of the
criminal underclass in this com-
munity, that if you (break) the
laws, we are coming after you
with all the might that the law
gives us," he said.
Mr Hanna said that the
prayers of the RBPF are with
the staff members and customers
of Scotiabank who had to be
taken away due to the shock and
trauma of the incident.


"But essentially this has been
a very good day for law enforce-
ment and I want people in this
country to know that we are
committed to policing this coun-
try with everything that it takes
to make sure that the few misfits
who create problems in this
country will be dealt with, with
the harsh reality that the law
will prevail in this country," he
said.
Managing Director of Scotia-
bank Bahamas Limited, Barry
Malcolm said that they have
ordered counsellors to meet with
staff at the East Street and Sol-
dier Road branch to help the
staff work through what must
have been a "very, very trau-
matic experience".
"It is the normal procedure,
in fact the police let me into the
branch a short time ago so I
could speak with the manager
and the staff, and they are pret-
ty badly shaken up. But thank
God, none of them has been
hurt and they will be okay with
counselling and some help," he
said.
The bank is expected to open
tomorrow as usual.


Police 'arrange for
Troyniko McNeil to
speak with them'
FROM page one
been in the United States since
around December last year.
"She went in and explained
the situation, and they agreed
that he would come in and his
lawyer was going to come in
with him," he said.
The source said that in light
of this he does not know why
police are now alleging that
they are still searching for Mr
McNeil, who was last week
identified by police as a "person
of interest" in the November,
2007, murder of Harl Taylor.
In the wake of Mr Taylor's
death, the police have been
focusing a lot of attention on
the McNeil family as Troyniko's
father, Troy, was a "business
partner" of the fashion design-
er, the source alleged.
"I think there are some peo-
ple who are pushing it in that
direction," said the source.
"Anybody close to (McNeil
Snr) they called them in. It's
ridiculous. I think they have a
good idea who did it but they
don't want to touch it," he said.
According to the source,
when Troyniko speaks with
police it will be in order to
"clear the air."
A photograph of Troyniko
was released by police last
Thursday in a "wanted" bulletin
which described him as armed
and dangerous and called for
anyone with knowledge of his
whereabouts to contact police.
On Tuesday Acting Assistant
Commissioner Hulan Hanna
told The Tribune that police had
not received any claims of sight-
ings of Mr McNeil, who was last
known to be a resident of the
Kennedy sub-division.
He encouraged anyone with
information regarding the
young man's whereabouts to
come forward to the police.
Mr Taylor was found dead in
his Mountbatten House home
on West Hill Street on Sunday,
November 18. He had suffered
multiple stab wounds.
Raymond Gibson, Acting
Assistant Commissioner of
Police in charge of crime, told
The Tribune yesterday that
he had no comment on the
claims.

Baseball Hall

of Famer Hank

Aaron to address

Bahamian youth
MAJOR League Baseball hall
of famer Henry "Hank" Aaron
is in Nassau this weekend as a
special guest of US Ambassador
Ned Siegel and his wife
Stephanie Siegel.
While here, Mr Aaron will be
the guest of honour at the US
Embassy's 4th of July celebra-
tions. Mr Aaron will also take
time out of his schedule to talk
to young Bahamians as well as
the up and coming baseball play-
ers on Saturday, July 5 at the
Kendal Isaacs Gymnasium
beginning at 9.30am.
Since his retirement from pro-
fessional baseball, Hank Aaron
has given back to society for
more than 30 years. His Chasing
the Dream Foundation was
established to help children
between the ages of 9 and 12
realise their dreams, as he
realized his. The foundation pro-
vides grants to children to enable
them to pursue advanced study
in music, art, writing, dance and
sports.
Hank Aaron is the greatest
home run hitter of all time, and
was elected to baseball's Hall of
Fame in January, 1982 and he
holds more Major League bat-
ting records than any other play-
er in the game's history. In 2007,
Barry Bonds broke Aaron's
record for most home runs 755.
The US Embassy is inviting
parents to bring their children
to the gymnasium to meet Hank
Aaron on Saturday, July 5. All
children are asked to be seated
no later than 9am "to be a part
of this once in a lifetime experi-
ence and hear words of wisdom
and encouragement from one of
the greatest Major League Base-
ball players of all time," an
embassy spokesperson said.


A MARRIED man who has
been seeking a divorce from
his wife for nearly four years
says he is fighting with the
courts to obtain his freedom.
Lloyd Bowleg, 63, of Clar-
idge Road, Nassau, first filed
for divorce from his second
wife in July 2006 on a number
of grounds.
-.However, 53-year-old
Lynette Bowleg rejected his
grounds claiming they had a
loving marriage, and without
enough evidence to satisfy the
judge, Mr Bowleg's case was
dismissed.
Unhappy with the way in
which the case was handled,
and with his legal representa-
tive, Mr Bowleg lodged anoth-
er application with his brother
Harry Alphonso Bowleg as his
representative.

Law
The petitioner, a retired con-
tractor at the Bahamas Elec-
tricity Corporation (BEC),
maintains he has now lived
apart from his wife for five
years and the law stipulates a
separation of just two years will
allow for a "decree nisi".
Mr Bowleg has not howev-
er, received any response from
the, Supreme Court registrar
despite applying for court dates
on numerous occasions, and he
has had no explanation.
He said: "This is really frus-
trating because I really want to
move on with my life. This has
been going on since 2004 and
we haven't once tried reconcil-
iation.
"It seems like the court does-
n't want to hear me and I don't
see why because I have been a
law-abiding citizen of this
country all my life.
"All I am seeking is my
decree nisi.
"I think it is important to
take a turn in my life when the
law stipulates that I can do
what I like."
A spokeswoman from the
Supreme Court registrar's
office maintains Mr Bowleg's
case has not been heard
because he needs a certified
attorney to lodge the appeal
l


and represent him in court.
However, the petitioner
maintains he was never
informed of this and chose his
brother because he has not
found a legal attorney he can
trust.


Although Mr Bowleg's
brother claims to be "an attor-
ney of fact", he is not a mem-

He didn't belong here in the
first place. Nevertheless, 11
years ago, Ali Baba and 14 oth-
er baby male alligators were
flown in to Freeport by Parrot
Jungle, then lessee of the Gar-
den of the Groves.
"In a misguided and ill-fat-
ed attempt to enhance the
property's attraction value by
offering zoo-like exhibits of live
animals, the alligators were
brought in without much appar-
ent thought for their well-being
as they grew and matured,"
according to the Humane Soci-
ety of Grand Bahama.
After the hurricanes of 2004
devastated the garden along
with much of Grand Bahama,
and then Wilma in 2005 added
the finishing touches, Parrot
Jungle "completely abandoned
their responsibility for the sur-
viving animals in the summer
of 2006," the society said in a
statement.
That summer, the Humane
Society and Grand Bahama
Nature Tours became aware of
the plight of the few remaining
animals at the garden,, and
assisted in rescuing and re-hom-
ing a number of animals,
including peacocks, ducks, and
the surviving pigs and goats that
had been featured in the "pet-


ting zoo". Ali Baba was the sole
surviving alligator.
"Fifteen mature alligators
could not live in the small
enclosure originally built for
them; some had died prior to
the hurricanes and the rest soon
after," the statement said.
For the past two years,
Sameir Wildgoose, field ser-
vices officer for the Humane
Society, visited the garden twice
a week with raw chicken and
turkey meals for Ali Baba.
Grand Bahama Nature Tours
enlisted the help of UNEXSO
who provided raw fish for Ali's
weekend meals.
All the while, HSGB and
GBNT were working with
David Hitzig, executive director
of the Busch Wildlife Sanctuary
in Jupiter, Florida in an attempt
to re-export Ali Baba to his
country of origin. Because he
was captive bred in Florida, and
because alligators are recog-
nised as threatened species by
the CITES treaties, of which
both the Bahamas and the US
are signatories, the red tape and
delays were extensive.
Finally, David Hitzig, Dea-
nia Hitzig and Shannon Wiyda
from the Busch Wildlife Sanc-
tuary flew in to Freeport and

vised the safe capture and crat-
ing of Ali Baba, who is now 11
years old and well over 10 feet
long.
"The whole process went
very smoothly and Ali Baba
was handled humanely and
gently. Bob Clutter of GB
Express flew in first thing Sat-
urday morning to pick up Ali
Baba and Mr Hitzig for the
flight to Miami and after clear-
ing Customs there, flew them to
Jupiter," the statement said.
Mr Hitzig reported by e-mail
late Saturday that "Ali made
the trip just fine. Bob Clutter

point along the way and took
extra time to make sure we had

ager at the Abaco Tourist
office, and requested that the
issue be addressed.
To date, there has been no
action taken in the matter, but
according to the source, Belin-
da Mcintosh at Road Traffic
claimed that police officials
were investigating the matter.
It has been confirmed that
the container belongs to a local
resident. It is alleged that for
security reasons he was given
permission to leave his con-
tainer on property owned by
Ray Purcell.
"This is an eye. sore that
sticks right out to the road for
everyone to see the racial slurs
and symbols," a local realtor
who requested anonymity said.
"We have a good number of
visitors that come here of Jew-
ish descent, so this does not
portray the Bahamas or Abaco
in particular in a good light to
see this hate graffiti."
The findings have residents
questioning its motives. It has
left many asking why. Histor-
ically, Nazi signs have been
used to refer to hostility
towards Jews, yet in this day
and age symbols of this kind
could be directed against per-
sons of any extended culture
and ethnicity.
A Tribune staff member said
that this observation raises
questions as to whether cur-
rent tensions in the growing
Haitian community on the
island sparked this hate act. A
resident of the island, who
asked to have her name with-
held for fear of retaliation,
questioned this suggestion.
She told The Tribune that
the situation runs deep, and
said that residents have been
agitating since last year,
against a local development
called "The Crossing," a gated
community with condominium
units.
She believes that the hate
messages might have been
directed at the project manag-
er, Niels Wiethuechter, who is
of German descent. It is
alleged'that on June 20, just
hours before an open house at
the development, the contain-
er defaced with hate mes-
sages was put on Mr Pur-
cell's vacant property, which
is yards away from the project.

obscure that anti-Semitic mes-
sages would be used to offend

resident believes that the mes-
sages are a part of a "reverse
psychology" method to remind
Mr Wiethuechter of his histo-
ry.
According to her, Marsh
Harbour residents have been
"vehemently" opposed to 'The
Crossing' project from the
start, claiming that because the
area was residential, it would
take away from the normal
pace of the area.
Arousing the dynamics of
the situation, last year, the


Town Planning committee val-
idated plans for 'The Cross-
ing,' leaving residents outraged
that their concerns were over-
looked and claiming they were
not informed of the commit-
tee's decision.
"The process for appeals
began from there," she said. In
fact, the initial decision from
the Town Planning committee
was overturned by former
Abaco local government MP
Sidney Collie, who got
approval from government to
continue the project.


Racial exclusion 'still an issue in Bahamas'
FROM page one

He discussed a statement put forth by Rev CB Moss a few years
ago, which said that the country was "plagued by the non-involve-
ment of white Bahamians in national affairs."
Rev Moss lamented the lack of participation by white Bahami-
ans in national events.
Mr Stevenson also discussed the response by Norman Solomon
"a great Bahamian" who asked: "What has my love of country and
loyalty to my country got to do with ... my appearance at Clifford
Park?"
He said he asked himself the same thing, which led him to an
even more "fundamental" question: "Why would black Bahamians
'want' or, indeed as suggested by Rev Moss 'need' the involve-
ment of white Bahamians in the national life of the country?"
Mr Stevenson said he came up with the answer that within the
popular imagination, both majority rule and independence are
regarded as achievements of the majority black population. As
such, he said, there is a "yearning deep within the black Bahami-
an psyche to succeed where once white minority rule had failed -
to create an inclusive society." He said that Rev Moss' statement is
an expression of this.
He said that while independence and national majority rule will
continue to be seen as achievements, there will always be an under-
lying doubt as to their effectiveness unless they lead to "the removal
of barriers that resist the inclusion of various groups, classes and
marginalised voices..."
Mr Stevenson said that he knows why "my appearance on Inde-
pendence Day, at that place on the hill where I once saw the
Union Jack lowered, has everything to do with my love of country"
and supports others thinking and acting similarly.

Independence Day:



A day for change


* By DESHON FOX

INDEPENDENCE
Day is one of the few
days of the year when
Bahamians come
together in a show of national
solidarity On this day we cel-
ebrate our common heritage.
Sadly, the feeling of cama-
raderie amongst the general
population fades in the days
following the festivities as old
divisions and uncaring atti-
tudes resurface.
In essence, we forget what it
was we celebrated only a few
days earlier: the idea of a pros-
perous, united Bahamas.
This year can be different,
Independence Day is an
opportunity for the Bahamas
to begin a process of unifica-
tion a process that requires
no less than a fundamental
change in our perceptions
about religious thought and
politics.
Our national discourse on
issues of moral and social
import is generally closed to
perspectives from non-Christ-
ian sources. This should
change.
Christianity is indeed the
predominant religion in the
Bahamas, but in a Bahamas
that is becoming more ethni-
cally and religiously diverse
our national discourse must
become more inclusive.
Our country would stand to
benefit from a co-operative,
more consultative approach
to religious and political dia-
logue.
Our politics is not only pet-
ty, it is unproductive.
Each election period politi-
cians get into their respective
camps and hurl insults and
accusations at the members of
the other party.
Do the Bahamian people
benefit from this behaviour?
Is our discourse elevated by
partisan attacks?


"What the Bahamas needs is a
new kind of politics, a politics
that is less about winning
elections or scoring political
points and more about tending
to the needs of the Bahamian
people."


What the Bahamas needs is
a new kind of politics, a poli-
tics that is less about winning
elections or scoring political
points and more about tend-
ing to the needs of the
Bahamian people.
For this kind of politics to
prevail in our society, we must
elect political leaders who
exhibit a genuine concern for
the Bahamian people.
A different type of leader-
ship, more visionary and self-
less, is needed in the years to
come.
Our country will turn 35 on
July 10, 2008.
No doubt many of us will
reflect on the courageous


efforts of men and women like
Sir Lynden Pindling, Sir Milo
Butler, and Dame Doris John-
son who argued passionately,
both locally and at Colonial
Office in London, for a sov-
ereign Bahamas.
Their efforts, and the efforts
of many other patriots, led to
the formation of a country
that has the potential to
become a symbol of progress
in this region of the world.
We will not realise our
potential if we continue along
our current path.
The path we are on is
wrought with violence, cor-
ruption and disillusionment.
It is not easy to redirect the
trajectory of a nation, and yet
if we truly value our country
and each other, we can suc-
ceed by working together.
We can create a prosperous,
united Bahamas.
This Independence Day let
us not focus on how far we
have come as a country, but
rather on how much more we
could achieve if we were less
divided.
Let us make this Indepen-
dence Day a turning point in
our nation's history.

THE TRIBUNE


FROM page one

session, Mr Wilchcombe
decried the mistakes made in
this year's local government
election process, and the gov-
ernment's attempts to correct
the errors, as "crimes against
democracy."
Mr Collie last week resigned
from his Cabinet post as the
Minister of Lands and Local
Government after a ruling by
the Supreme Court resulted in
the suspension of elections in
nine Family Island districts.
During the second reading of
an Act to modify the provisions
of the Local Government Act
for the year 2008 in the House
yesterday, Prime Minister
Hubert Ingraham said that fail-
ure to publish notices of elec-
tion as required by law and fail-
ure to take account of polling
division changes made in 2007,
among other reasons, led to the
elections not being held in the
nine districts.
Announcing his resignation
last week, Mr Collie said that
he takes sole responsibility for
the errors and failures made
during the election process.
However, Mr Wilchcombe
said yesterday that in his opin-
ion there was no question that
Mr Collie is the "fall guy" in
this situation and that every
Cabinet minister should share
in the responsibility.
He said Mr Collie did not
make decisions regarding the
elections in isolation.
"They knew. The Cabinet of
the Bahamas knew, no single
minister. This was not some-
thing that was done in the pri-
vacy of a ministerial office," he
said.
Mr Wilchcombe said that
many weeks before the June 26
election date, the Opposition
made Mr Collie aware of their
concerns that he was proceed-
ing with the elections in a way
that was not in accordance with
the law.
Written communications out-
lining their concerns, he said,
were also sent to the prime min-
ister and the registrar general.
"(The prime minister) was
aware at all times about this
issue, he could have corrected it,
the Cabinet could have correct-
ed it," he said.
In addition to Mr Collie, the
Attorney General's Office, the
parliamentary registrar and by
extension the Minister of
National Security, "and of
course the: prime minister,"


Obie Wilchcombe


should all be made responsible
for the mistakes made, Mr
Wilchcombe said.
The Local Government Mod-
ification of Provisions Act, 2008
- which seeks to remedy errors
made during the local govern-
ment election process was
passed yesterday.
Members of the Opposition
voted against it.
Mr Wilchcombe said he could
not support the Act and that
asking the Opposition to pass
it is akin to asking them to
become "co-conspirators of a
crime against democracy."
"This is an abuse of parlia-
ment.
"I think some other people
should be gone, I think some
other people should be tender-
ing their resignations. I don't
believe Blue Hills even knew
what he was doing, every sin-
gle minister is responsible for
the errors," he said.
Mr Wilchcombe also raised
concerns about local govern-
ment elections that went ahead
in the Family Islands' 23 other
districts.
"We're not playing around
with a simple issue, this is
democracy. If the parliamen-
tary registrar was doing his job,


if the government was doing its
job, shouldn't someone have
raised the fact that the voter
registration list has been conta-
minated," he said.
The recent Pinewood elec-
tion court case and the ongo-
ing Marco City case have shown
that the registration list is
contaminated and that the
whole election process needs to
be reviewed, Mr Wilchcombe
said.
The MP asked how any elec-
tions can go ahead in the
Freeport district while voters in
the Marco City constituency
are still being challenged in
court.
Blue Hills MP Mr Collie told
parliament yesterday that he is
the only Cabinet minister in the
history of the Bahamas to have
tendered his resignation "with-
out any prodding, without
grand-standing, without any
ducking and diving."
He emphasised that there was
never a cover-up of the errors
made in the election process.
"I'm a stand-up man, I face
this parliament and the Bahami-
an people took the responsibil-
ity for the errors made and
resigned my position as a Cabi-
net minister," he said.


Officials tight-lipped on future

of Acting-Deputy Commissioner

FROM page one

nald Ferguson, when asked if he is aware of the impending depar-
ture of Mr McCoy to Road Traffic, said that he is not "privy to any
such knowledge on anything of that nature."
The structure of the Royal Bahamas Police Force is in an unset-
tled state, as there are ten combined assistant and acting assistant
commissioners, along with an acting deputy commissioner and
acting commissioner.
What further compounds the glut at the top of the Force is that
the three top young officers who will run the Force in the near
future are soon to return to assume elevated posts.
Both Marvin Dames and Ellison Greenslade are in training in
Canada, while Quinn McCartney is in England. The trio should be
back in the Bahamas either late this year or early in the new year.
An FNM insider recently confirmed.to The Tribune that Marvin
Dames is likely to be the next commissioner of police rather than
Mr Greenslade. Mr Greenslade is senior to Mr Dames in rank
and experience, however.
If this occurs, and Mr McCartney is named deputy commission-
er as is expected by Force insiders, it is unlikely that Mr Greenslade
will remain in the Force subordinate to two officers he once out-
ranked.
Mr Greenslade would then be faced with the options of either
departing form the Force, or accepting another top public service
post, if it is offered by government.
Calls placed to Mr McCoy were not returned up to press time.

Report: Portuguese police ending inquiry

into missing British girl Madeleine McCann


* By BARRY HATTON
LISBON, Portugal
Portuguese police are dropping their investigation
into the disappearance of toddler Madeleine
McCann due to a lack of evidence, media reported
Tuesday.
Three Portuguese newspapers said the Public
Prosecutor's office would call off its search for the
British girl before Aug. 15, when the customary
official secrecy period covering the investigation
ends.
Closing the case would mean that official sus-
pects, including Madeleine's parents, would no
longer be under formal investigation.
Police could reopen the case if new evidence were
to emerge, the newspapers said.
The three Correio da Manha, Jornal de Noti-
cias and Expresso cited unidentified police
sources saying the 14-month investigation had
reached a dead end.
The police media office in Lisbon said there was
no official comment on the reports.
Madeleine McCann went missing in Portugal's
southern Algarve region during a family vacation in
May 2007, a few days before her fourth birthday.
Detectives named her parents, Kate and Gerry, and
local man Robert Murat as formal suspects in the
case. All denied involvement in Madeleine's disap-
peatance. The Portuguese lawyers for the suspects
could not immediately be reached by telephone.


The McCanns, who have waged an international
campaign to find their daughter, returned home to
central England with Madeleine's younger sister
and brother last September, a few days after they
were named as suspects.
Clarence Mitchell, the parents' spokesman, said
they were trying to confirm Tuesday's media reports
but said he expected the search for Madeleine to
continue.
"The information in their files surely cannot sit on
the shelf gathering dust. KAte and Gerry will never
give up searching for their daughter," Mitchell said.
He said that if Portuguese police end their inquiry
they should hand their files over to the McCanns'
private investigators.
"The police themselves must continue looking
for Madeleine. We are concerned that if they are to
simply shelve the case then what will happen to all
of the information in their files? They must be made
available to our investigators, who are working
extremely hard to find Madeleine," Mitchell said.
The case has drawn global interest. A few weeks
after Madeleine vanished, Pope Benedict XVI
blessed the McCanns and a photo of their daughter
during his weekly general audience at the Vatican.
Numerous reported sightings of the blonde-haired
girl proved to be false.
British and Portuguese police have cooperated
in the investigation. Sophisticated forensic tests on
evidence gathered at the resort where the girl dis-
appeared were carried out in Britain.

China resists



US push for



UN to punish



Zimbabwe


E By MATTHEW LEE
BEIJING
A U.S.-led push to punish
Zimbabwe ran into resistance
Sunday from China, which can
veto U.N. penalties sought
against its African ally over
President Robert Mugabe's
claim to re-election, according
,tp the Associated Press.
After talks with Secretary of
State Condoleezza Rice that
Salso covered Taiwan, Tibet and
;-North Korea, China's foreign
minister said Beijing favors
negotiations between Mugabe,
who was sworn in for a new
term Sunday, and the opposi-
tion. "The most pressing path
'is. to stabilize the situation in
-Zimbabwe," Yang Jiechi told
.reporters at a news conference
with Rice. "We hope the par-
ties concerned can engage in
serious dialogue to find a prop-
er solution."
"China hopes the interna-
Uional community, African
countries in particular, can a
pL\ a more constructive role
in this regard," he said. "China
.,as a responsible country will
Also play a constructive role in
,this process."
Yang stuck to a position that
China, one of Zimbabwe's chief


friends and trading partners,
long has held. But his comments
came just after Rice had spent a
significant amount of time mak-
ing the case for the Bush admin-
istration's new push to pressure
Mugabe, officials said. ,
Not much later, in Zimbab-
we's capital, Mugabe was sworn
in for a sixth term. Hours
before, electoral officials said
he had won a discredited runoff.
Leaders in Africa and else-
where had condemned Friday's
runoff, in which Mugabe was
the sole candidate. Opposition
candidate Morgan Tsvangirai
had withdrawn because of the
violence. Human rights groups
have said opposition support-
ers were the targets of brutal
state-sponsored violence dur-
ing the campaign, leaving more
than 80 dead and forcing some
200,000 to flee their homes.
Before travelling to Beijing,
Rice was in China's earthquake-
devastated southwest, visiting
some of the tens of thousands of
people left displaced by last
month's temblor. Rice praised
China's disaster recovery effort,
saying it contrasted with Myan-
mar's reluctance to allow in for-
eign aid after a devastating
cyclone. She was the highest-
ranking American to inspect the

ZIMBABWE PRESIDENT Robert Mugabe, right, greets the crowd at his final rally in Chitungwiza, Thursday, June 26, 2008. Zimbabwe is set to hold

damage in the mountainous
Sichuan province where almost
70,000 people have died, includ-
ing thousands of schoolchildren
killed when their classrooms
crumbled.
President Bush said Saturday
the U.S. was working on ways
to further punish Mugabe and
his allies. That could mean steps
against his government as well
as additional restrictions on the
travel and financial activities of
Mugabe supporters. The U.S.
has financial and travel penal-
ties in place against more than
170 citizens and entities with
ties to Mugabe, the White
House says. Bush also wants the
U.N. Security Council to
impose an arms embargo on
Zimbabwe as well as travel bans
on Zimbabwe government offi-
cials. Mugabe leads an "illegiti-
mate government" that retained
power only through a fraudu-
lent election, Bush said after
the runoff.
"The Mugabe regime held a
sham election that ignored the
will of the people of Zimbab-
we."
Rice has said the U.S. plans
to introduce a resolution in the
council this coming week. The
United States holds the coun-
cil's presidency until July 1, but
appears to face an uphill battle

members to agree to any penal-
ties. In addition to China, both
Russia, also a permanent veto-
wielding council member, and
elected member South Africa
have opposed action on Zim-
babwe, saying the situation is
an internal matter.
Although Yang indicated that
Beijing's stance had not
changed, Rice said the U.S.
would pursue the matter. She
said that conditions in Zimbab-
we had "deteriorated to a grave
level" and that "the sham elec-

tion there is likely to bring more
violence."
"We believe that it's time for
the international community to
act more strongly," Rice said.
"Frankly, it makes sense to
deny the government of Zim-
babwe the means to use vio-
lence against its own people."
At present, there is no inter-
national arms embargo against
Zimbabwe. China is one of its
main suppliers of weapons and
ammunition, although Yang
said a recent shipment had been
returned "at the request of the
receiving party." That shipment
made headlines this spring
when some African countries
refused to allow the freighter
to dock at their ports, partly at
the urging of the United States
and others. Rice and Yang both
expressed hope for the success
of the effort get North Korea
to abandon its nuclear weapons.
On Thursday, North Korea
submitted a long-delayed
accounting of its atomic activi-
ties. Bush announced the U.S.
intended to ease some penal-
ties against the communist
country and North Korea

at its Yongbyon reactor com-
plex.

Israel seals Gaza crossings after rocket attack


* By AMY TEIBEL
JERUSALEM

Isiael closed its cargo cross-
ings with the Gaza Strip on
Tuesday after accusing Pales-
tinian militants of firing a rock-
et at southern Israel in viola-
tion of a shaky truce, according
to the Associated Press.
Gaza's Hamas rulers denied a-
rocket was fired on Monday
evening, and accused Israel of
looking for excuses to shirk its
commitment under the cease-
fire agreement to ease its block-
ade of impoverished Gaza.
"'The closing of the border
today is unjustified and another
indication that the Israeli occu-
pation is maneuvering and try-
ing to dodge the conditions of
the calm understanding,"
Hamas spokesman Sami Abu
Zuhri said.
The Israeli military said its
radar detected a rocket
launched from Gaza that struck
near the communal farm of
Mefalsim. But it said actual
rocket fragments were not.
located, and local security offi-
cials were searching for them
Tuesday morning.
It was not clear how Hamas
would know definitively
whether a rocket was fired. Sev-
eral militant factions operate
inside Gaza.
' No injuries or damages were
reported Monday, but Israel has
taken a zero-tolerance approach
to any violation of the ceast-
fire. Since the truce went into


effect on June 19, the crossings
have been closed for five days
because of rocket and mortar
attacks.
None of them has caused seri-
ous injuries or damage.
Israeli Prime Minister Ehud
Olmert declared Tuesday that
nothing would stop Israel's
"struggle to bring calm and
security to the residents of the
south."
"Israel is backtracking on the
calm," declared Gaza's Hamas
prime minister, Ismail Haniyeh.
Abu Zuhri also accused the
military on Tuesday of shoot-
ing a 65-year-old Palestinian
woman who lives near Israel-
Gaza border in what he called
"a grave violation of the calm
understanding."
The military said its prelimi-
nary investigation indicated it
was not involved.
In its initial stage, the Egypt-
ian-brokered truce aims to bring
an end to fighting that has killed
seven Israelis and more than
400 Palestinians many of
them civilians since the
Islamic militant group Hamas
wrested control of Gaza a year
ago. It also obligates Israel to
ease its bruising blockade of the
coastal strip, home to 1.4 million
people.
The sanctions were designed
to piessure Palestinian militants
to halt their assaults on south-
ern Israel, but ,aey have driven
ordinary Gazans even deeper
into destitution and confined
them to their tiny seaside terri-

passages with Gaza have been
sealed to everything but human-
itarian aid and fuel supplies.
Israel had committed under the
truce to allow in larger ship-


ments of sbme-supplies, but
deliveries have not increased
because of the attacks.
Egypt, too, sealed its border
with Gaza after the Hamas
takeover, opening it only occa-

On Tuesday, Egypt again
opened the Rafah crossing -
Gaza's main gateway to the out-
side world for two days to
allow hundreds of people
stranded on both sides to cross.
Palestinian diplomat Nabil
Amr told reporters in Cairo on
Monday that Palestinians need-
ing medical treatment and those
with residency permits in Egypt
or other countries abroad would
be allowed into Egypt.
Fifty Gazans with medical
conditions were to be the first
allowed out, traveling across the
border in ambulances.
Although Rafah lies on the
Gaza-Egypt border, Israel has
had the power to halt the cross-
ing's operations because Euro-
peans monitoring the passage

has ntit been given since the
Hamas takeover, and Israel has
insisted that Rafah would not
"return to normal business"
until Hamas releases an Israeli
soldier captured two years ago.
But the emphasis on "normal
business" indicated that Israel
would agree to occasional open-
ings of Rafah.
In January, Hamas blew up
the border wall between Egypt
and Gaza, allowing hundreds of
thousands of people to move in
and out of Egypt for nearly two
weeks before it was resealed.

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 7/03


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.

you can place your queen and took

addition White has a useful pawn

while the black queen is stranded
on the other flank unable to
influence events. I guess many

Opening lead king of diamonds.
Occasionally, a player has a
chance to win by deception what
might be lost by straightforward
play. Today's deal pro\ ides an inter-
esting example, both from the olTen-
site and defense e points of vicw\.
South %on West's king of dia-
lmonds with lthe ace and saw lie could
make his slam if either tihe spade or
club 1inCesCs succeeded. Since both
finesses had anl eCqual chance ofVwiln-
ning. he decided to Iforgo the club
finesse because the queen i ight lill


on the first, second or third round of
the suit.
So, after drawing two rounds of
trump, he cashed the A-K of clubs
and ruffed a club. When the queen
did not drop, the slam appeared to
depend on the location of the spade
king.
However, declarer was still not
inclined to pin all his hopes on a suc-
cessful spade finesse. Instead, he led
a trump to dummy, ruffed the jack of
clubs and then led the jack of dia-
monds!
West won with the queen and
found it hard to believe that South
would waste the jack of diamonds if
lie had a los diamond left to lead
toward dummy's ten. So, to avoid
presenting declare with a ruff-and-
discard, he shifted to a low spade,
handing South the slam.
While we have nothing but admi-
ration for South's clever ploy, West
should necertheless have found the
winning counter play. At the point
where West won the diamond,
declare had shown up with precisely
six hearts, two diamonds and two
clubs.
If South actually started with
only a doubleton diamond, he had to
have three spades. So even if a dia-
mond return yielded a ruff-and-
discard, it would still leave declarer
swith a spade loser, assuring that the
slam would go down one.

Contractors chief
fears that banks
might tighten
lending criteria as
non-performing
loans rise, negating
Stamp and Real
Property Tax
incentives designed
to stimulate
construction,
real estate

* By NEIL HARTNELL
Tribune Business
Editor
THE full stimulus to the
Bahamian construction and
real estate industries from
the tax exemptions
announced in the 2008-2009
Budget may not be felt if the
commercial banking sector
tightens lending conditions
in response to rising non-per-
forming loans, the Bahami-
an Contractors Association's
(BCA) president warned yes-
terday.
Stephen Wrinkle said the
credit policies and criteria
used by commercial banks
when it came to extending
mortgage loans would be
"crucial" to the success of the
Stamp Tax and Real Proper-
ty Tax exemptions that were
chiefly designed to stimulate
the first-time homebuying
market.
"The lending criteria to
going to be crucial to the suc-
cess of the incentives," Mr
Wrinkle told Tribune Busi-
ness yesterday.
"If the lending institutions
partner to work with their
clients, we could see an
upswing in the housing mar-
ket and home construction."
According to the Central
Bank of the Bahamas' report
on monthly economic and
financial developments for
April 2008, non-performing

'Impossible to make



profit' in LPG sector

Tribune Business
Reporter
BAHAMIAN liquefied
petroleum gas (LPG) whole-
salers are currently being forced
to sell at prices some $0.40
below the product's landed
costs, industry executives yes-
terday telling The Tribune that
it was another sector where
inflexible price controls will
force many companies out of
business because it was impos-
sible to be profitable.
The industry, which supplies
cooking gas to most Bahami-
ans, is one of many on the point
of possible collapse because it is
unable to raise its consumer
prices rapidly enough to cover
ever-rising operating costs, due
to the controlled margins and
prices set by the Government.
Since the industry is regulat-
ed by price controls, dealers are
limited in the mark-ups they can
charge, even if operating costs
outweigh profit margins.
Caribbean Gas part-owner
Tennyson Wells, the former MP
and Cabinet Minister, told Tri-
bune Business yesterday that
the situation was so bad that it
was surprising companies can
still operate, given the fact that
the approved selling price for
many was less than the LPG
landed cost.
He pointed out that the LPG
industry has not been granted
permission to increase prices
for several years, and while the
approved selling price for LPG
gas was $2.25 for wholesalers,


Grand Bahama

casino suffers

$826,000 loss
* By NEIL HARTNELL
Tribune Business Editor
ISLE of Capri's Grand
Bahama-based casino posted
an $826,000 operating loss dur-
ing its last fiscal year, despite
an improved fourth quarter
that saw the Our Lucaya facil-
ity product $299,000 in profits.
Year-on-year comparatives
were always going to be tough
for the Isle-Our Lucaya casi-
no, as its financial performance
for the year to April 29, 2007,
was boosted by tax write-backs
and other one-off gains result-
ing from a new agreement
reached with the former PLP
administration to keep Isle of
Capri on Grand Bahama.
As a result, the $826,000
operating loss for the 12
months to April 27, 2008, look
far worse than they are com-
pared to the $7.492 million fig-
ure generated by the previous
year's one-off gains.
For the 2008 fourth quarter,
covering the three months to
April 27,2008, Isle-Our Lucaya
saw net revenues fall by 8.5 per
cent year-over-year, dropping
from $5.198 million to $4.758
million.
Over the same period, oper-
ating income dropped to
$299,000 compared to the
$11.638 million recorded for
the 2007 fourth quarter. Of
course, that figure was bloat-
ed by Isle-Our Lucaya's one-
time gains.
Over the full-year period,
Isle-Our Lucaya's net revenues
fell by 7.3 per cent to $15.548
million in 2007.

the landed cost was $2.65 -
meaning they were selling at
$0.40 below the break-even

"It is impossible for them to

He explained that while white
gases such as gasoline also
faced similar price controls and


fixed margins, LPG bears addi-
tional costs.
This is because, by law, it
must be delivered to its cus-
tomers, whether it is sold whole-

ORGANIZERS of a Bahamas-
based fashion show are set to
announce the featured designers lat-
er this month, after yesterday
announcing that NOIR.Illuminati II
of Denmark will lead the list of
international guest designers.
Mode Iles, organiser of Islands of
the World Fashion Week, scheduled
to be held from 5-8 November, 2008,
at the British Colonial Hilton, Nas-
sau, and Atlantis Resort, Paradise
Island, said Peter Ingwersen, design-
er at NOIR, was known for his
attention to detail and focus on envi-
ronmentally-friendly materials and
processes.
Previously head of design for Lev- ,O n
i's Nordic Region, global brand
director for Levi's Vintage Clothing and Levi's
RED, and a Member of the Levi's Brand Manage-
ment Leadership Team, Mr Ingwersen established
NOIR.Illuminati II in March 2005.
Owen Bethel, President of Mode Iles, and
founder of Islands of the World Fashion Week,
said: "It is a pleasure to have the calibre of design
and the message projected by NOIR grace the cat-
walk of this premiere event. Through their unified
presentation of elegant fashion, Mr Ingwersen and
NOIR represent the global concerns of the envi-
ronment, labour and human rights, and initiatives in


respect of poverty alleviation, all
relevant to the issues to be high-
lighted by Islands of the World
Fashion Week, and at the core of
the themes of the United Nations
Educational, Scientific and Cultural
Organization (UNESCO), which has
endorsed the event. NOIR will take
center stage at the Opening Recep-
tion."
Mr Bethel added: "NOIR is one
of several non-island designers cho-
sen to participate for their contri-
butions to the fashion industry in
one form or another. These are the
international guest designers. The
event is intended, primarily, to
showcase the collections of estab-
lished and new designers from
islands around the world.
"To date, we have designers registered from Bar-
bados, Cuba, Dominican Republic, Fiji, Indonesia,
Jamaica, St Lucia, St Vincent, Trinidad and Toba-
go, and the Bahamas. Interest has also been
expressed by designers from Grenada, Guadeloupe,
Madagascar, Martinique, Mauritius, and Puerto
Rico. We will announce the names of those design-
ers selected from the islands in late July and early
August, as the deadline for submission of applica-
tions is the end of July and the Screening Commit-
tee is still processing these applications."

Troubled 50m



fund ordered



into complete



liquidation


* By NEIL HARTNELL
Tribune Business
Editor
THE Supreme Court has
-ordered the full winding-up
of a troubled $50 million
Bahamas-domiciled invest-
ment fund, whose provision-
al liquidators have so far
only been able to recover
some $800,000 in investor
funds.
Justice Neville Adderley
ruled on June 13, 2008, that
Bahamian accountant Maria
Ferrere, of FT Consulting,
and Jean Robillard, a Cana-
dian, be appointed full joint
official liquidators of Ivest
Fund Ltd, following the
winding-up petition present-
ed by the Securities
Commission of the
Bahamas.
In a January 2008 affidavit
sworn to support Ivest's
winding-up, Hillary
Deveaux, the Securities
Commission's executive
director, said the fund's con-
tinued operation "would be
detrimental to the public
interest and to the interests
of Ivest's investors".
At the time, the Securities
Commission had expressed
concern that Ivest was oper-
ating without a licensed
Bahamian fund administra-
tor, in breach of the Invest-
ment Funds Act 2003, after
its previous administrator,
Genesis Fund Services,
resigned in. September 2007,
There js nothing to suggest
Genesis has done anything


wrong in relation to the Ivest
episode.
In its application for the
provisional liquidators to be
appointed, the Securities
Commission added that it
had been forced to take
action because the fund had
no officers or directors,
while its Canadian princi-
pals, Mario Bright and
Themistoklis Papadopoulos,
could not be traced.
"The accounts in the
Bahamas related to Ivest
have been closed, and
monies therein are in jeop-
ardy of being irretrievably
lost," the Securities Com-
mission alleged.
"Therefore, its investors
are being prejudiced."
To date, as provisional liq-
uidators, Ms Ferrere and Mr
Robillard have found that
Ivest's last audited financial
statements showed it had


$51 million in assets under
management. These includ-
ed $27 million in cash, some
$22 million (40 per cent of
its assets) were invested in
an affiliated Cayman-domi-
ciled investment fund, Focus,
and a further $1.8 million
was loaned to related enti-
ties.
Some $30 million was
invested in Focus by Ivest
over a four-year period
between 2004-2007.
Ivest's auditors, Gomez
Partners & Co, had qualified
the Bahamian fund's 2006
audited financial statements,
due to the fact that no audit-
ed financial had been made
available for Focus, and
therefore they were unable
to properly value the
investment in the Cayman
fund.
As at September 30, 2007,
Ivest had more than 101
investors who had paid in
$47.7 million, with the size
of the investments varying
between $40,000 and $10
million.
Ivest's net assets under
management had increased
from $18 million in 2003,
according to the 2005 finan-
cial statements, to $25 mil-
lion in 2004, $45 million in
2005, and to $48 million by
2007.
However, almost all Ivest's
available funds were wiped
out in 2007 by investment
losses that totalled more
than $16 million. This was
caused by "aggressive posi-
tions on futures contracts".

US contradicts itself over its own ID theft advice


* WASHINGTON
Associated Press
WHEN it comes to the risks
of identity theft, the U.S. gov-
ernment isn't taking its own
advice.
The nation's Medicare agency
and the Pentagon compel at least
52 million Americans to carry
their Social Security numbers in
their wallets, contrary to warn-
ings bv the Federal Trade Com-
mission that people should avoid
doing so.
At least 44 million Medicare
insurance cards include the ben-
eficiary's full Social Security
number.
Social Security numbers also
appear on 8 million Defense
Department identity cards used
by active duty and reserve forces
and their dependents, and on
identification cards issued to mil-
itary retirees. The Pentagon
plans to remove the numbers but
won't complete the effort until
2014.
And the Internal Revenue
Service still tells taxpayers to
write their Social Security num-
ber on checks used to make pay-
ments, a potential problem for
those using the mail rather than
filing electronically.
All this contradicts advice
from the Federal Trade Com-
mission, the lead federal agency
for deterring identity theft.

Pamphlet

"Protect your Social Security
number. Don't carry your Social
Security card in your wallet or
write your Social Security num-
ber on a check," the FTC warned
in a pamphlet sent months ago. to
every mailing address in the
United States. The'Social Secu-
rity Administration offers similar
advice.
Carrying a Medicare card with
the full Social Security number is
more of a problem than the
Social Security card. People usu-
ally need the insurance card to
visit a medical provider but can
memorize their number and
always leave their Social Securi-
ty card at home.
The Centers for Medicare and
Medicaid said it would be too
expensive for the agency, and for
medical providers linked to
Medicare, to change their sys-
tems with new numbers.
Medicare officials also.said they
know of no cases in which iden-
tity theft was traced directly to a
lost or stolen Medicare card.
Charlene Frizzera, chief oper-
ating officer of the nation's
Medicare agency, said it would
cost half a billion dollars to make
the change for the government
alone. Medicare's budget is
$466.1 billion for the current
financial year.
"Our advice is, don't carry it
with you unless you know you're
going to need'it," Frizzera said of
the government insurance card.
But that advice contradicts the
message on the back of the card:
"Carry your card with you when
you are away from home."
The president's Identity Theft
Task Force recommended last


year that U.S. agencies reduce
the unnecessary use of Social
Security numbers, which it called
"the most valuable commodity
for an identity thief."'
Arnold Werner, 84, a retired
chemical engineer from Scott
Depot, W.Va., was so upset over
his Medicare card that he
blacked out the two middle num-
bers of his Social Security num-
ber. His physician's office said
he needed to write the number
back so it could copy it for billing
purposes.
Werner gave up his attempt
to change the system. By the
time he needed the card for a
hospital visit, he had obtained a
new card with his full Social
Security number printed on it.
"The government doesn't
know what it's doing," he said. "I
don't think they do anything
right these days."
Military forces, their depen-
dents and retirees must carry
their ID cards for a range of ser-
vices and benefits. Army officials
at Fort Bragg, N.C., mistakenly
issued to an identity thief a mili-
tary ID card in July 2001 in the
name of retired .Army Capt..
John Harrison with Harrison's
Social Security number.
The thief, Jerry Wayne
Phillips, was later convicted and
sentenced to 41 months in prison
after running up more than
$260,000 in charges, including
two trucks and a $25,000 Harley
Davidson motorcycle. Harrison
has testified to Congress about
the need for tougher identity
theft laws.
Combined with other person-
al information such as a vic-
tim's full name, birth date and
home address a Social Secu-
rity number can be used to open
fraudulent credit accounts using
a victim's identity. With just a
Social Security number, a clever
thief can fraudulently obtain a
victim's credit report for as little
as $50, an important step toward
ultimately impersonating a vic-
tim.
"The underground is using dif-


ferent pieces of information to
put together a picture of you,
and a key piece of the puzzle is
your Social Security number,"
said Dan Clements, president of
CardCops, which sells services
that monitor consumer accounts
for identity theft.
Medicare has no plans to
change or revise its insurance
cards.
The Pentagon will begin elim-
inating the Social Security num-
ber in stages starting at the end
of this year.
The IRS said in a statement it
would not return a check that
was missing the Social Security
number, but it has no plans to
change its instructions.

Recognition
"At the surface level, they're
working at cross-purposes.
There's a reason for that," said
Joel Winston, the Federal Trade
Commission's director of the
division of privacy and identity
protection. "They've historically
used this as an identifier because
it works very well. But there's a
widespread recognition that it's
not a good idea anymore."
The Defense Department said
it doesn't have the money, peo-
ple, equipment and work stations
to replace the cards all at once.
By 2014, the number will not
be printed on any of the Defense
Department cards except those
for retirees who fail to request
new IDs. There is no expiration
for retiree ID cards used for
access to base facilities and ser-
vices such as the library, gym,
bowling alley and golf course.
The Veterans Affairs Depart-
ment, state governments, private
companies and educational insti-
tutions already have acted to
eliminate visible Social Security
numbers:
-Private insurers covering
roughly 200 million people issued
new cards in recent years that
replaced Social Security num-
bers with different identifiers. "I
don't know of private insurers

who use a Social Security num-
ber on the card," said Susan
Pisano, spokeswoman for Amer-
ica's Health Insurance Plans.
"Industry practice is, where
Social Security numbers are used
at all, they are used internally."
Byron Hollis, national anti- raud
director for the BlueCross
BlueShield Association, said the
39 independent companies in the
trade group spent about four
years replacing insurance cards
for more than 90 million cus-
tomers by the start of 2006.,


-The VA spent roughly $6
million to replace about 4 mil-
lion benefit cards to remove the
Social Security number and birth
date and placed all sensitive
information on a bar code and
magnetic strip. The only visible
information on the new VA
health cards is a color photo and
identification of a special status,
such as a Purple Heart recipient
or former prisoner of war.
-Most universities have elim-
inated use of Social Security
numbers.


-Forty-seven states have
enacted laws to prevent identity
theft, although their scope varies
widely. In many instances, the
laws ban use of the number for
driver's licenses and other official
state documents, student ID
cards and cards issued by private
health insurers. "States have
really forged out ahead," said
Richard Hamp, an assistant
attorney general in Utah. "I'm
disappointed that the federal
government isn't more on top of
it."

Tougher credit policies


FROM page one

ous four months.
Anwer Sunderji, the Clearing
Banks Association's chairman,
told The Tribune earlier this
week that if non-performing
loans moved significantly fur-
ther north of the 5 per cent
mark, the situation may become
a little more difficult for the
banking industry, which was
already employing more strin-
gent collections and credit poli-
cies.
"The banks are close to the 5
per cent threshold for non-per-
forming loans, and are probably
going to be a bit more stringent
on credit," Mr Wrinkle said yes-
terday.
"The banks are going to raise
that criteria for lending, so we
may not realise the benefit of
those incentives given the cur-
rent economic conditions. We
may not be able to generate the
effect we first thought."
Among the incentives
announced in the 2008-2009
Budget were Stamp Tax exemp-
tions for first-time homebuyers
on all properties valued at
$500,000 and below; the expan-
sion of the Real Property Tax


exemption from properties val-
ued at $250,000 and below to
$500,000 and below for the first
five years after they are acquired
by a first-time homebuyer; and
the elimination of Stamp Tax on
mortgage transfers between one
institution and another.
Mr Wrinkle said Bahamian
contractors were hoping that the
domestic home construction
market, aided by the exemp-
tions, would begin to grow again.
While commercial construc-
tion opportunities were pre-
senting themselves in the case
of Bahamian companies who
had outgrown their existing
premises and wanted to expand,
the BCA president said: "There
appears to be a lot of commer-
cial vacancies in Nassau for
office space, so I don't see an
upswing in commercial con-
struction there."
Mr Wrinkle said that while
most Bahamian contractors were
employed, it was largely on work
involving renovations and
upgrades to existing properties,
rather than new construction,
which was where the real rev-
enues and profits came from.

'Impossible to make


profit' in LPG sector


FROM page one
and other administration expenses, particularly
when faced by soaring gasoline prices, makes
it vital for them to be able to price LPG accord-
ingly.
Mr Wells suggested that if the Government
wanted to retain its fixed margins, $0.90 per gal-,
lon would be satisfactory and allow LPG compa-
9nies to at least make some profit. Other than
that, he claimed that price controls should be
abolished and competition and open market con-
ditions drive the price.
"I think that in this case, the Government is
reacting rather than being proactive," Mr Wells
said.
He pointed out that on average, Bahamians
use about 1.5 million gallons of LPG per month,
compared to the 20 million gallons per month of
gasoline they consume.
Other industry sources told Tribune Business
that some companies have stopped selling LPG
wholesale because it does not make financial
8f9 sense, and it may be possible that a situation
occurs similar to that with the gas stations, where
increased operating expenses prices and dimin-


ished profits caused some station 'owners to not
purchase gas and, ultimately, shut down.
They said they were interested in taking their
concerns to the Government.
Mr Wells said it was a ridiculous situation for
LPG dealers to be in, adding that if they go broke
and are not able to supply cooking gas, the.entire
Bahamas will suffer.
"It will cause a whole new slew of problems,"
he said.
Mr Wells told The Tribune a month ago that if
the LPG situation remained as it was, choking gas
would run out within two weeks. "Many in the
propane industry may stop importing the gas and
close up shop," he said at the time.
Yesterday, Mr Wells said he suspected that
given how much prices can fluctuate, in a month's
time, the situation would be even worse.
In 2005, propane prices were increased from
$65 to $70' for 10011 cylinder delivery in New
Providence and Grand Bahama, and from $73
to $79 for 1001b cylinder delivery in the Family
Islands.
Effective 2005, bulk delivery in New Provi-
dence and Freeport was $2.25 a gallon for whole-
sale suppliers and $3.26 a gallon for distributors.

"It's just that the scope of
works is very small. People are
doing work that is not 'Class A'
work," Mr Wrinkle said. "It's
renovations, patching. There's
not a lot of new vertical con-
struction."
Stimulating the construction
industry, which is thought to
account for as much as 11 per
cent of.Bahamian per annum
gross domestic product (GDP),
is seen as key to reducing unem-
ployment levels because it picks
up much of the unskilled and
semi-skilled workforce.
Mortgage commitments and
mortgage releases fell by 22.9
per cent and 33.4 per cent
respectively in 2007,
highlighting the construction
slowdown.
Mr Wrinkle told The Tribune
yesterday: "Construction affects
every other facet of the econo-
my. Everyone gets a piece of the
construction pie once you get
the ball rolling.
"But it's going to be a strug-
gle.
"We're not immune from
global conditions, and we have
to weather the storm."

"It is all beyond our con-
trol," he said. "Everyone
doing business is impacted."
Gavin Collins, of Asa H
Pritchard, said that while
consumers will be impacted,
the extent may vary accord-
ing to the product involved.
"So it may be half a per
cent for something and 1
per cent for something else,"
Mr Collins said of potential
price increases.
He added that in another
cases, Asa H Pritchard may
wait to enforce price
increases until au entire
product line is affected, or
in the hope that prices will
stabilise for a particular
product.
In any event, Mr Colloins
said consumers prices will
reflect the profit margin the


company is trying to make.
"Tropical Shipping has
been experiencing a dra-
matic increase in the cost of
the inland transportation of
cargo over the last few
months. To recover these
inland fuel expenses, Tropi-
cal Shipping will implement
an increase to the inland
fuel surcharge, for the fol-
lowing locations," a letter
issued by the shipping com-
pany to its clients read.
Among the affected loca-
tions is the Bahamas, with
the changes due to take
effect from July 27, 2008.
The changes are applica-
ble to all open tariff and
contract rates, and will be
calculated based on zones,
the company said in a fax to
customers seen by the Tri-
bune.
According to Tropical, the
current surcharge for local


dryage from points in Zone
1- Broward, Dade, Indian
River, Martin Okeechobee,
Palm Beach St Lucie coun-
tries, Tampa City Limits,
Houston, New Orleans a,
Mobile and Jacksonville city
limits will all remain
unchanged.
Costs in zone 2, which
includes: all other Florida
points, will increase by $85
from $260 $345.
Zone 3 prices, which
includes the states of Alaba-
ma, Georgia and South Car-
oling, will increase from
$470 to $610, and zone 4
prices Mississippi, North
Carolina, Louisiana and
Tennessee will see a $180
increase to $775 from $595.
Additionally, the company
noted that the prices for
shipment in zone 5 will
increase by $225, zone 6,
$270, and zone 7, $370.

'ready to go'


FROM page one
secretary and the Attorney
General's Office. The minister
was then going to take it to
Cabinet, with a view to putting
it on the legislative agenda for
the fall session of the House.
That is the intention and our
understanding."
Since then, Prime Minister
Hubert Ingraham has reshuf-
fled his Cabinet, and the result-
ing change in ministerial
responsibilities has seen Dr
Deveaux reassigned as minis-
ter of the environment. He will
be replaced at the Ministry of
Works and Transport by for-
mer tourism minister, Neko
Grant.
Mr Wrinkle said it was
unknown whether Mr Grant
would have the same priorities
as Dr Deveaux, and the BCA
hoped to meet with the new
minister shortly after the July
10 Independence celebrations.
The BCA president added
that the Attorney General's
Office had tried to incorporate
all the private sector suggestions
it had received, not only from
the construction industry but
the engineering profession and
others, into the draft Bill.
Adding that "everything from
our side is tidied up", Mr Wrin-
kle said the Bill was the only
device available to provide for a
proper system of licensing and
registering Bahamian contrac-
tors, and protect consumers.
"It's the only protection being
offered to consumers of any
kind, and allows some form of
comfort for individuals to be


in fall 2008


put in place," the BCA presi-
dent said.
"It's a comprehensive Bill. It
does licence and regulate the
industry, and gives consumers
protection and recourse against
shoddy contractors and work-
manship. It also gives us a level
playing field against foreign
contractors who come into the
Bahamas to do work."
Among the recommendations
made, as previously reported
by Tribune Business, were that
an arbitration clause be insert-
ed, so that disputes between
clients and contractors go to
arbitration before they went to
court.
Numerous contractors had
also suggested that a 'Prime'
category be created for the
largest contractors, such as Cav-
alier Construction, Osprey
Developers, Sunco and CGT
Construction, the qualifying cri-
teria for inclusion being
whether they had 100 employ-
ees or more.
Initial drafts of the Contrac-
tors Bill provided for the licens-
ing of contractors according to
the size of projects they were
able to do, based on past per-
formance.
The Bill provided for Build-
ing Contractor Level One, Lev-
el Two and Level Three, effec-
tively small, medium and large
construction companies, but
some contractors had argued
that those capable of building
'Level One' residential proper-
ties should also be considered
capable of constructing com-
mercial buildings in that cate-
gory.

Microsoft, Yahoo rise


on deal talks report


* NEW YORK*

SHARES of Yahoo Inc.
and Microsoft Corp. rose
in premarket trading
Wednesday as the Wall
Street Journal reported
Microsoft has talked to
other media companies
about teaming up to buy
Yahoo's search business,
according to Associated
Press.
The paper reported
Microsoft has spoken to
News Corp., Time Warner
Inc. and others about a way
to complete the proposed
deal, which was first
announced on Feb. 1.
Microsoft ultimately with-
drew a $47.4 billion bid for
Yahoo in May.
The Journal suggested
that Microsoft would buy
Yahoo's Internet search


business, and the rest of
the company would be
combined with another
outlet, like News Corp.'s
MySpace or Time Warner's
AOL.
The talks were described
as preliminary, and citing
sources familiar with the
talks, the Journal indicat-
ed Microsoft may be hav-
ing difficulty finding a part-
ner.
In premarket trading,
shares of Yahoo climbed
$1.89, or 9.4 percent, to
$22.09.
The stock finished at
$20.20 Monday, and is
trading at its lowest levels
since late January.
Microsoft shares gained 17
cents to $27.04.
Calls to both Microsoft
and Yahoo were not imme-
diately returned.

IRS is cleared


to serve UBS in




widening offshore




tax investigation


* By CURT ANDERSON
AP Legal Affairs Writer

MIAMI (AP) A federal
judge agreed Tuesday to
allow the IRS to serve legal
papers on Swiss banking giant
UBS AG in an expanding
investigation into U.S. tax-
payers who may have used
overseas accounts to hide
assets and avoid taxes.
The order from U.S. Dis-
trict Judge Joan Lenard came
one day after the Justice
Department requested
authority for the IRS to issue
"John Doe" summons to
UBS. The summons are used
in IRS tax fraud investiga-
tions when the identity of the
people involved isn't known.
Lenard said in a two-para-
graph order that based on the
government court filings,
"there is a reasonable basis
for believing such a group or
class of persons may fail or
may have failed to comply"
with U.S. tax laws.
The summons will allow
the IRS to obtain informa-
tion about American taxpay-
ers who have UBS accounts
but did not file required
forms detailing their taxable
income.


Order comes one day after the

Justice Department requested

authority for the IRS to issue

'John Doe' summons


"The order clears the way
for the IRS to take the next
steps against wealthy individ-
uals who don't pay their tax-
es," said IRS Commissioner
Doug Shulman in a written
statement. "People with hid-
den foreign accounts can no
longer rest easy."
UBS has said it is cooper-
ating with Swiss and U.S.
investigations and will dis-
close records involving U.S.
clients who might have bro-
ken tax laws.
"As we have noted, UBS
takes this matter very seri-
ously and is working diligent-
ly with both Swiss and U.S.
government authorities, con-
sistent with Swiss law and the
legal frameworks for inter-
governmental cooperation
and assistance," UBS said in a
statement Tuesday.
U.S. taxpayers are required
to report all foreign financial
accounts if their total value


exceeds $10,000 at any point
during a given year, prosecu-
tors said. Failure to report the
accounts can result in a penal-
ty of up to 50 percent of the
amount in the accounts.
The Justice Department
requested the summons after
former UBS private banker
Bradley Birkenfeld, 43,
pleaded guilty in a Florida
federal court to defrauding
the IRS. Birkenfeld, who is
cooperating with investiga-
tors, said in court that UBS
has about $20 billion in assets
in undeclared accounts for
U.S. taxpayers.
Prosecutors said Birkenfeld
and others helped California
billionaire Igor Olenicoff hide
$200 million in assets over-
seas.
Olenicoff, who controls a
real estate empire, pleaded
guilty last year to tax charges
and agreed to pay the IRS
more than $52 million.

domestic product increasing 5
percent a year, from now to

cent annually for the decade
after.
But many companies and
economists, including some
inside the government, say the
dearth of highly skilled labor,
particularly engineers and
tradesmen, will jeopardize
those goals, and Brazil's eco-
nomic and political rise.
"The lack of availability of
technical ability may be a con-
straint on growth, no doubt

about it," Jose Sergio Gabriel-
li, president of Petrobras, the
state-run oil company, said in
an interview.
"It is a big challenge for the
country."
The engineering shortage
here is spreading across indus-
tries. The lack of civil and con-
struction engineers threatens
infrastructure projects; areas
like banking, aircraft manufac-
ture, petrochemicals and metals
are all competing for the same
top graduates. In the booming
oil and gas industries, compa-
nies are turning to foreign labor
because there are not enough
qualified Brazilians to go
around.
"Some of our big clients in
the oil and gas sector have 40 to
50 job openings and they can't
fill them," said Paulo Pontes,
managing director of Michael
Page International, a leading
headhunting firm.
"When we asked companies
what the careers of the future
were, seven out of 10 of them
were in engineering. That
shows the reality of what is hap-
pening today."
A study by the National
Confederation of Industry last


September found that more
than half the 1,715 industrial
firms polled could not find the
skilled workers they needed.
Of those, 69 percent said the
lack of a qualified work force
resulted in inefficiency; 36 per-
cent said it led to lower quality
goods; and 25 percent said it
made acquiring or assimilating
new technologies more diffi-
cult.
That reality is leading thou-
sands of Brazilian companies
into the education business.
Some teach basic literacy and
arithmetic to janitors and man-
ual workers. Other more
advanced courses help factory
and production line workers
better understand math, sci-
ence and composition. And
major companies are increas-
ing the amount of on-the-job
training they give to engineers
and professionals.
"We are planning to invest
$11 billion this year and $60
billion over the next five years
just in organic growth projects,"
said Maria Gurgel, director of
human resources planning and
compensation at Vale, one of
the world's largest mining com-
panies.

Stocks trade mixed after


Sl hl l faictorn nr ders


* By DAVID JOLLY
c.2008 New York Times
News Service
PARIS BP, the British oil
company, appeared to be in danger
of losing control of its Russian joint
venture Tuesday after learning that
the Moscow authorities had
refused to issue work permits to
critical expatriates on its staff.
BP, formerly British Petroleum,
has not received promised work
permits for 71 employees at its
TNK-BP joint venture, a BP
spokesman in London, Toby
Odone, said.
Those include permits for
Robert Dudley, chief executive of
the venture, and its chief financial
officer, James Owen. Without the
documents, it would be impossi-
ble for them to extend their visas,
which expire at the end of the
month. That would leave the Russ-
ian partners in operational control.
"It will be damaging," Odone
said. "It's clearly not a good thing
to have senior managers not able
to do their work." Nonetheless,
production at the venture is
"absolutely" normal for now, he
said, and discussions to resolve the
issue "are ongoing."
In a statement Monday to
Reuters, Dudley said that BP had
"been given no grounds to believe
these issues will be resolved before
senior international staff and their
families will have to leave Russia.
Unfortunately, this now appears
very likely."
'BP owns 50 percent of the ven-
ture, with the remainder held by
four Russian billionaires. TNK-BP
reported annual revenue for 2007
of $24.9 billion and net profit of


$5.7 billion.
Since the venture was formed
in 2003, BP has come under
increasing pressure from its bil-
lionaire partners and the Russian
government to reduce its equity
stake to a minority position.
Odone said the problem result-
ed from an internal struggle
between BP and two of the bil-
lionaire shareholders German
Khan, the executive director, and
Viktor Vekselberg and not the
Russian authorities. Mikhail Frid-
man and Len Blavatnik are the
other main shareholders.
According to Odone, Dudley
asked Khan to apply for 150 work
visas in April. But Khan, who is
trying to reduce BP's role in the
venture, sought only 63. Learning
of this, Dudley applied separately
for the full 150 slots that BP said
were necessary to ensure it could
do its business. The Moscow
authorities, receiving conflicting
requests held a hearing and chose
71 as a "compromise figure," Khan
did not immediately reply to a call
seeking comment.
Yevgeny Chernetsov, deputy
head of the Moscow Committee
for Interregional Relations and
National Policy, told Bloomberg
News.
In a statement Tuesday, BP said:
"We're surprised and disappointed
that management's properly autho-
rized request has been denied and
that a process that the company
has gone through without prob-
lems in previous years has been
interfered with by two shareholders
in the company's management act-
ing without authority and with dis-
regard of agreed and established
internal processes."

the Nasdaq composite index
slipped 0.89, or 0.04 percent,
to 2,304.08.
Declining issues narrowly
outpaced advancers on the
New York Stock Exchange,
where volume came to 273.7
million shares.
Bond prices rose. The yield
on the benchmark 10-year'
Treasury note, which moves
opposite its price, fell to 3.97

Tuesday. The dollar slipped
versus other major currencies,
while gold prices fell.
In corporate news,
Microsoft Corp.. has
approached other media com-
panies about a bid to acquire
Yahoo Inc., according to a
report in The Wall Street
Journal. Yahoo rose $1.51, or
7.5 percent, to $21.71, while
Microsoft fell 11 cents to
$26.77.
Starbucks Corp. rose 13
cents to $15.75 after announc-
ing late Tuesday it will close
600 company-operated stores
in the next year because of the
faltering U.S. economy. The
company said 70 percent of
those slated for closure
opened after the start of 2006.
And Blockbuster Inc. said it
is withdrawing its proposal to
buy Circuit City Stores Inc.


Blockbuster said the proposed
deal, at a price of more than
$1 billion, didn't make sense
because of market conditions.
Blockbuster jumped 31 cents,
or 12 percent, to $2.82, while
Circuit City fell 35 cents, or
14 percent, to $2.20.
Health insurer United-
Health Group Inc. lowered its
2008 profit forecast, citing
reduced commercial business
and higher-than-expected
Medicare-related costs. Sepa-
rately, the company also said it
agreed to pay $895 million to
settle a class-action lawsuit

Associated Press
STOCKS traded mixed
Wednesday after factory
orders showed their the weak-
est performance in three
months in May.
The Commerce Departmen-
t's report that orders rose by
0.6 percent in line with a
consensus of Wall Street econ-
omists surveyed by Thomson
Financial offered investors
little incentive to make big
moves either way. The
increase follows a gain of 1.3
percent for April and showed
weakening demand for autos,
heavy machinery and steel.
The data offer further evi-
dence that higher energy
prices are causing some busi-
nesses and consumers to pare
their spending.
Oil ticked higher. A barrel
of light sweet crude rose 16

Cox News Service
DESTIN, Fla. Taina
Sanchez is feeling the pinch of
high gas prices in her job as a
waitress at an open-air seafood
restaurant overlooking Destin's
picturesque harbor.
"The tourists are still coming,
but they aren't tipping like last
year," said Sanchez, 25, who
works at the Lucky Snapper.
"Last year I'd make $80 to $100
a day and this year it's $40. Peo-
ple are short on cash."
High gasoline prices and a
sour economy are taking a toll
on family budgets, and that
means business owners in vaca-
tion destinations like Florida
are sweating over whether the
summering hordes will come
their way this year.
The summer season is
nowhere more important than
Florida's Panhandle, where a
stretch of sugar-white sand
beaches from Pensacola to just
south of Tallahassee draws huge
numbers of visitors from across
the Southeast.
Tourism officials remain
upbeat and say bookings are
strong, but reports from indi-
vidual businesses are spotty.


over summer


"We've never
seen the amount
of cancellations
we're having this
summer. Some of
them tell us it's the
high gas prices
and they just can't
afford to come.
The spring was
really slow, but
now it's picking
up. We're 90 per
cent full, so we're
doing well

Diane Dickey,
manager of the Sea
Oats Motel in Destin
"We've never seen the
amount of cancellations we're
having this summer," said
Diane Dickey, manager of the
Sea Oats Motel in Destin.

can't afford to come. The spring
was really slow, but now it's
picking up. We're 90 percent
full, so we're doing well."
Tourism officials from Des-
tin and Panama City Beach
have responded to high gas
prices with marketing cam-
paigns highlighting discounts
and freebies like gas cirds in
hopes of luring families worried
about their pocketbooks.
"We're trying very hard to
put out the word that we're
close to home and offer great
vacation value," said Dan
Rowe, president of the Pana-
ma City Beach Convention and
Visitors Bureau. "Through
April, bed tax collections year-
to-date are up 4.8 percent, so
we're doing well. But gas prices
are having an affect. Everybody
is talking about them."
The numbers are similar in
nearby Destin and Okaloosa
County, said Darrel Jones, pres-
ident of the Emerald Coast
Convention and Visitors
Bureau.
"March was up but April was
down, probably because Easter
fell early this year," he said.
"People are looking at their
budgets, but we think that helps
us because we're close to cities
like Atlanta, Birmingham and
Nashville."
Vickie Warner, Marketing
Director for ResortQuest,
which manages 3,000 condo and
hotel units in Northwest Flori-
da, said bookings are actually
20 percent higher than last year.
"We're having a very good
season," she said. "We're offer-
ing a $50 gas card if they stay
three nights, $75 for four nights
and $100 for seven nights or
more. We know families have
budget issues, so we're being
very customer-friendly."
Smaller, mom-and-pop oper-
ations without deep pockets and
big marketing budgets seem to
be feeling the pinch, however.
"We're off about 30 percent,"
said Jerry Haynes, manager of
the 20-room Aqua View Motel
in Panama City Beach.
"They're not booking as many
days and they are price-shop-
ping real hard. Last year they'd
come in and ask if we had
rooms, and this summer they're
asking what our prices are.


Some of them drive away look-
ing for something cheaper."
Tammy Sullivan, office man-
ager for the Village Inn in Des-
tin, said it isn't just families that
are being hurt by high gas
prices.
"We have a lot of corporate
customers who bring vendors
and customers to go deep-sea
fishing and some of them aren't
coming," she said. "We're down
about 25 to 30 percent."
Charter boat operators are
feeling the squeeze more than
most because their own fuel
costs have skyrocketed.
"Normally in January we're
booked solid for the summer
but now it's day-to-day," said
Diana McGowan, whose hus-
band Shawn captains the :shing
boat Maggi from the pier next
to Capt. Anderson's Seafood
restaurant in Panama City
Beach. "It's fear. People are
afraid to make a commitment."
McGowan said diesel prices
have leaped by more than $1.50
a gallon over last summer, but
her family can't raise their rates
more than $5 or $10 a trip
because competition with other
boats is fierce. "We're down 30
to 40 percent," she said.
Cheryl Adams, who runs the
Sea Dragon Pirate Cruise in
Panama City Beach has cut
back the number of cruises
to make sure each trip is
packed.
"The beginning of the sum-
mer was really slow, but now it
has picked up," she said. "The
only thing I can relate it to is
gas prices. Families are still
coming, but they are staying
fewer days and spending less on
activities."
High gas prices have even
prompted some customers at
California Cycles, which rents
scooters and electric carts in
Panama City Beach, to ask how
much it costs to fill a scooter
tank.
"They only hold a gallon and
a half and they get 90 miles to
the gallon, but gas prices are a
big topic on everybody's mind,"*
said manager Linda Bolden.
"We're down about 30 percent
over last year.
"But we are seeing more
locals come in to buy our scoot-
ers and electric carts."

Precious Memories
How they linger
Teran Gerald Jennings
:2October 27th 1981 July 2nd 200oo4



-11


It has beenv fo-ur yenalrs now
Silent tears still flow
No one would ever know
How much I miss you so.

If tears could build a stairway,
and memories a lane
I'd walk right up to heaven and
bring you home again.
No farewell words were spoken,
no time to say goodbye,
You were gone before we knew it,
and only God knows why.

Precious memories would forever
linger in the hearts of his son
Deontai, mother Carmell
Jennings, brothers, sisters, family
and friends especially those in
Yellow Elder Gardens.

TEACHERS' DREAMS
Teachers dream that students will be
receptive and responsive, listening and
learning, giving their best to each sub-
ject and activity. They want their
pupils to strive for excellence, to make
the effort to shine in any and all areas
of giftedness, and to be motivated to
aim for some measure of success in the

that will benefit from the teacher's

Holding fast to dreams involves the
ability to choose friends carefully and
to resist temptation to break moral
and social rules. Good behaviour
means no cursing, fighting, rebellious-
ness that courts suspension or expul-
sion. It demands that laziness be over-
come, and discouragement defeated.
Comprehending the relationship
between sacrifices today for tomor-
row's victories compels us to be
patient with the process.
Let your morning pep-talk include
the following thoughts: "I am going to
hold fast to my dreams. One day at a

and determination, I can succeed. By
God's help, yesterday's dream will

Giving and



receiving love


I would like to share a
story I heard about sometime
ago: Hudson Taylor was direc-
tor of the China Inland
Mission.
Once he was interviewing candi-
dates for the mission field. "Why-do
you wish to go to a foreign mis-
sion?" he asked them one after
another. "I want to go because
Christ has commanded us to go into
the entire world and preach the
gospel to every creature," said one.
Another said, "I want to go because
millions are perishing without
Christ." Others gave different
answers. Then Hudson Taylor said,
"All of these motives, however
good, will fail you in times of test-
ings, trials, tribulations, and possi-
ble death. There is but one motive
that will sustain you in trial and
testing; namely, the love of Christ."
In our society today we wonder
what motives us as Christians to do


By CLEMENT
JOHNSON

what we do, because many of us
seem to have moved away from the
core message of Jesus: that is love.
In our country when we look at the
number of killings whether through
murders or abortions it shows a lack
of respect for human life. We seem
not to be connected to the Message
of Christ, nor the Messenger Christ.
The core message in the gospel is
one of love; Jesus teaches those
whom he is sending out as messen-
gers of the gospel that they must be
driven by the love they bear for him,
and sustained by the love they
receive from others. In other words,
preaching the gospel is not just a
question of being a channel of God's
love, for a channel flows only in one
direction. It is more like being an
electrical conduit which receives


current only to give it out, and gives
out current only to receive again.
The high rate of physical fatigue,
mental exhaustion and spiritual dry-
ness among church members is more
prevalent today than ever before.
Most Christians only see the
Minister as the one who has to
preach and teach and live the mes-
sage. Jesus tells us that it is a ques-
tion of loving and being loved, of
giving and receiving.
In Matthew 10 Jesus gives his dis-
ciples an extended teaching on mis-
sion or ministry. In the first part of
the reading, Jesus paints a portrait
of the 'missionary or minister who is
worthy of the name "Christian."
Whoever loves father or mother
more than me is not worthy of me;
and whoever loves son or daugh-
ter more than me is not worthy of
me;
and whoever does not take up the
cross and follow me is not worthy of
me. (Verses 37-38)
In other words, the messenger of
Christ must be someone who is in
love with Christ in such a way that
love of parents and children (and
implicitly, love of spouse) assumes a
secondary importance. Not only
love of family but love of oneself
becomes secondary as well. To take
up one's cross and follow Jesus is to
sign one's death warrant because the
way of the cross ends up on the


Calvary of crucifixion. The only
credible ("worthy") messenger of
Christ is the person who has found a
reason to live and a reason to die,
and that reason is Jesus Christ him-
self. That is why the first part of the
reading concludes with the general
principle: "Those who find their life
will lose it, and those who lose their
life for my sake will find it." (verse
39)
We as Christian messenger must
be the ones who not only dispense
love, but as one who receives, the
love and hospitality of the people.
"Whoever welcomes you welcomes
me, and whoever welcomes me wel-
comes the one who sent me" (verse
40).
We as Christians must open not
only our pockets books, but our
hearts to others; we must be the con-
duits where the love of Jesus flows
to others. Violence must not be not
be seen as the norm, prejudice and
hatred must gradually become emo-
tions of the past. Love must be the
order of the day; this can only be
accomplished when we allow the
message and messenger to become
Lord of our lives. We would like to
thank the many people who offered
prayers and continue to call about
our brother. He is gradually gaining
strength; the road to recovery will
be a slow one; but he believes in a
God who is able.

Religious honouringg' events are now money makers


We moved from a period
where churches and organiza-
tions seldom took the time to
honour people, to the other end
of the spectrum, where 'hon-
ouring' services are planned,
financially lucrative endeavours
This means that the focus is on
meeting a certain level of
profitability, with revenues
calculated to exceed total
expenses by a desired
and pre-determined amount.

THE FOLLOWING ARE KEY ISSUES ON
WHICH THE SPOTLIGHT SHINES:
SIThe reality is you cannot honour
and obligate a person at the same e!
Obligation is not an honour, espe ally
the stressful obligations now associat-
ed with so-called honour endeavours.
If you want to honour a person, then
by all means, do so!. Honour, don't
obligate! Don't place a figurative
noose around their necks so that while.
giving them public visibility, you are
squeezing their necks and choking
them....

A friend telephoned me to inform
me that she had received a letter that
some entity wanted to honour her.
She called friends to help her to fill a
table of ten (10) as ten tickets had
accompanied her offer letter. The cost
of each ticket was $150.00. (Hovwever,
tickets in the $75 to $100 per person
range are more common). A! a;,\
rate, in this case, she nddded, tiivt' Lp4i)
port of acquaintances to attend '.150


DR ALBERT S.

': ; '. g -.. -..:'" !" . -_- .' ;:

per seat, 'honour' event, and with a
spouse, that became $300.00.

It is now typical and becoming com-
monplace for an "honour" to come
with strings attached--
a) the person must sell a certain
number of booklet ads
b) the person must sell a certain-
number of banquet seats, or
c) the person must respond positive-
ly to other conditions when the 'hon-
ouring' event is not a banquet.

If you ever received an honour'let-
ter, then.you know exactly what I am
talking about. Moreover, the obliga-
tion often does not stop at the 'hon-
ouring' service; it sometimes has a life
of its own as it often continues into the
future. Further, any gift which has
'strings attached' begins to feel like
manipulation. Gifts ought to be
freewill contributions by virtue of their
very nature. But it soon becomes
clear that the honour offered entails
more than what meets the eye,
although that is not always the case.

d You cannot honour me when you
don't even know me! I recall once
being 'honoured' by several politicians
in the southern constituencies of town.
My name had been submitted but I
did not even live in their constituen-
cies. They presented me with a certifi-
cate on that occasion. Alongside me
were all kinds of people, all presuim-
ably worthy of.honour 1i, t00 of
tliem .;:J ;:.0 r -' : '*, !0 fg; 1


Can you honour a person you know
nothing about? Is it not true that peo-
ple value their honour by their assess-
ment of the others being honoured on
that occasion? Then, is it not so that
some people assess the honour being
given by their evaluation of the per-
son/s issuing the honour? One is often
left to wonder, in these 'honour'
events, exactly who is being honoured
(the most)--the person receiving the
certificate or the person who decided
to (publicly and ostentatiously) give
the certificate?

fl What does it mean to honour a per-
son and what are the elements that make
an 'honour' episode meaningful?
To me, this is a case of putting "first
things first"! Consider the following,
which is a 'short list' of ten (10) 'hon-
ouring' principles:.
It should be outlined exactly why
the person is being honoured.
The person should be honoured in
the presence of the people who can
verify or are familiar with the reasons
behind the honour.
If the honour is going to be signifi-
cant, only a few persons must be hon-
oured at any given time. So the ques-
tion is this--Should the word "honour"
be used for events involving 100 moth-
ers, 100 fathers, 100 supporters, etc?
The community should know via the
press that the honouringg' event is tak-
ing place and the press should be pres-
ent to record the event. Of course,
there should be a paid professional
photographer!
Persons should be individually
extolled for their virtues, at the 'hon-
ouring' event, and not have their hon-
our 'conferred' en masse, as in a grad-
uation ceremony. People should be
made to feel honoured.
Persons don't need a banquet event
to be honored: Usually, it is the -.
organization which needs to make
some money.


Honouring me should cost you, not
me!
Let's forget about the piece of
paper, i.e., the certificate. Make the
honour memento significant!
At a later date, providing each hon-
ouree with a copy of the photograph
taken while receiving the award makes
the honour complete.
Placing the photos of the honourees
in picture frames in the church so that
they can be viewed all year long, for
one year, makes the honour truly
meaningful.

Don't get me wrong, an honouringg'
event is a wonderful way to applaud
the achievements of deserving individ-
uals. Let's continue to give honour
,where it is due! But let's be genuine
about it and not use it to create wealth
or to more firmly establish our own
public relations image in the eyes of
the community!

This presentation is not meant to
foster n spirit of ungratefulness,
whdtlf on behalf of the author or
other individuals and entities. It is
also not meant to offend anyone. The
objective is to encourage, to raise the
bar a notch, to get it right, to make it
better as we pursue excellence in what
we do in the religious arena. It is
wonderful when religious and commu-
nity organizations honour their own
constituents. It is great to be hon-
oured by your own people! Let's do
more of it!

has a soul, (3) he lives in a
body; then there are the three
elements (1) Earth, (2) Wind,
(3) and Fire, and then most
importantly we've got (1) The
Father, (2) The Son, (3) and
The Holy Spirit.
The enemy (Satan) has been and will
forever be doing his very best to distort
and try to discredit the truth and power
of the Holy Trinity through many false
religions and doctrines. With this in
mind I want to talk to you about the
power of The Three W's and how the
enemy has been gaining the advantage
over many of the saints of God through
their ignorance.
The 1st W: is the WORD of God
(Yeshuwa Messiah); and without a gen-
uine personal relationship with Him
and the consistent studying and obedi-
ence of the Logos the written word of
God, the abundant life of John.10:10
will never be a reality to the religious
mind-set.
The 2nd W: is the Warrior (the
archangel Michael) who is forever
ready to do battle on behalf of the
uncompromisingly righteous that rightly
divides and skillfully apply the word of
God. (NLU7 Dan.10: 12. Then he said,
"Don't be afraid Daniel Since the


first day you began to pray for under-
standing and to humble yourself before
your God, your request has been heard
in heaven. I have come in answer to
your prayer.
: 13. But for twenty-one days the
spirit prince of the kingdom of Persia
blocked my way. Then Michael, one of
the archangels, came to help me, and I
left him there with the spirit prince of
the kingdom of Persia.
The 3rd W: are the Worshippers
(John.4: 23. But the hour cometh, and
now is, when the true worshippers shall
worship the Father in spirit and in
truth. for the Father seeketh such to
worship him.
This W: are the worshippers that the
enemy fights against with all of his
might because he understands full well
the purpose and power of worship.
Satan, before being kicked out of heav-
en was the chief of worship; everything
about him consisted of worship; he was
built with musical pipes and instru-
ments, all of his movements were an act
of worship unto God. After being fired /
kicked out of heaven, Satan lost his
place and position of worship; therefore


worship is one area in a believer's life
and in every congregation that will
always come under constant attack
from the enemy.
No matter how good a preacher can
preach or how big the church building
may be, the enemy knows that if he can
contaminate the worship; the life of the
preacher or ministry will be stagnant.
The two key persons that the enemy
goes after right away is (1) the worship
leader who through God's anointing is
able to lead the congregation and make
the atmosphere conducive for a move
of God, and (2) the preacher that is
bringing forth the anointed word of
God that is able to remove burdens and
destroy yokes.
The religious church today with all of
its pomp and pageantry has yet to
understand the true essence of worship.
As they've allowed the enemy to per-
vert and contaminate their time of wor-
ship by various forms of sexual promis-
cuities and other works of the flesh.
Watch this! Here are a few strong-
holds that the enemy is using to hinder
the move of God within many congre-
gations.
Homosexuals / lesbians worship lead-
ers, choir members and musicians.
Fornicators and adulterers worship
leaders, choir members and musicians.
The church has forgotten that we're
supposed to be offering worship unto a
Holy God, this is why they've settled
for just about anybody with talents to
lead their congregation into worship;
rather than demanding Holy life style


from those who seek to lead worship,
choir members or musicians.
The religious woman in Jqhn.4:
sounds just like many within the four
walls of the church today as she debat-
ed with Yeshuwa about worship.
What would Yeshuwa say about your
acts of worship? Would He say the
same as He did to the woman?
(John.4: 23. But the hour cometh, and
now is, when the true worshippers shall
worship the Father in spirit and in
truth. for the Father seeketh such to
worship him.)
Religion, tradition and perverted /
contaminated worship will always keep
believers out of God's kingdom. There
are many dynamics that the church
have ignorantly overlooked as it relates
to true worship because we've learned
how to settle for sloppy services with
the notion that because God is love, He
will accept that which is being offered
even in a dirty / contaminated vessel,
despite the fact that He is a Holy God.

THE REATBALL

Kenneth Adderley tells readers how to 'Take the City'


FROM page 23
ment, and stir up the passion which
once drove their lives.

God creates a new season in the place
of an old season. It is God's interruption
in our lives that provokes us to move to
the next level. He launches us out into
the deep away from our place of com-
fort. He is repositioning us for greatness
to Take Over the City. Taking Over the
City, pg 27.

A first time author, Pastor Adderley
said he wrote 'Taking Over the City'
because he saw a lot of young people
and adults just living, "with no purpose,
no vision, no dreams, they are just here,
and I know, according to the scripture,
God never designed us to be that way".
There is something in each of us,
Pastor Adderley said, that the world
needs and God has placed that special
something in each one of us to bring
that forth.
He explained that there are four gen-
erations waiting for every individual on
earth waiting for us to fulfill the call on
our lives. "So everything we say, every-
thing we do will affect not only us, but
everybody around us, so that's why it's
so important for us to take the city that
God has given to us to control."
Pastor Adderley said further that a
lot of young people that are in prison
today have told him that they don't
know why they were placed on this
earth, and what their purpose is. And
that's why, he told Tribune Religion,
many young men do things without care
or concern for the consequences.


"So the Lord impressed upon me to
write a book that helps people, that
gives them the keys to their assignment
that God has placed on their life."
As a result of this urging from the
Lord, Pastor Adderley said that over a
year and a half ago, he started abstract-
ing information from messages that he
had accumulated during his time as a
pastor. In the end, it took about a year
for him to put all the information
together.

LOOKING FOR ANSWERS
'Taking the City', Pastor Kenneth
said, answers the basic questions why
was I created and what was I created to
do.
"There is an assignment that God
has placed upon each of our lives to ful-
fill in our lifetime. You'd never be com-
fortable in this life if 'you don't fulfill
that assignment that is why you find a
lot of people they are tired, bored, quit-
ting, giving up, don't see a way out -
because they have not found that
assignment that God has placed upon
their life to fulfill."

You must begin to understand your
assignment: the responsibilities God has
given to you. You have the answer for
the city. Your city will be occupied with
people who are hurting, angry, messed
up, tired, want to quit or give up on life;
people on drugs, prostitutes, homosexu-
als; people who have been molested,
abused, victims of incest and rape; peo-
ple who don't see any way out of their
current circumstances and act out their
anger and hurt. Your assignment is to
help these people transform what is cur-


rent reality in their lives into God's pur-
pose for their lives. City of God, pg 61

Through 'City of God', readers learn
that there is a unique environment that
God has given them to live in. That city
could be an individual's family, a per-
son's marriage, their job, he said, or it
could be men or women, youth, the
homeless or even a person's ministry.
"It could be anything it is where your
passion lies," Pastor Adderley told
Tribune Religion.
"This book tells you how to live in
this city that God has given to you to
take over. First you must understand
that you need to know what your city is
and where your city is because you can-
not control something you don't
know," he said.
Once a person has identified their
city and those who occupy it, then they
must understand that their passions
will direct them toward their life's
assignment.
Outlining how a person's passions
are created, Pastor Adderley said that
passion comes from three words: love,
hate and grieve.
Love is a passion you develop to do
things that no one has to push you or
excite you to do.
Hate: You have a passion for things
you hate that you always want to fix
them.
Grieve: You have a passion for the
things that make you grieve. You
always want to heal them.

"We know that passion is what drives
the world," Pastor Adderley said.
"Great men and great women do things
though their passion."


Now that he has broken through with
his first literary effort, Pastor Adderley
said that he has more books to write. "I
already have the topics for the next
eight, I just haven't put them together
yet. They are messages that I've
preached. This is what God has called
me to do, so I'd better show them how
to take the city that God has placed in
their life. The next book is called 'The
Missing Link'," he said.

'Taking the City: The Key to Your Life's
Assignment' is available at 100% Bible
Bookstore, Christian Bookstore, Temple of
the Word Ministries in Pinewood Garden
and Evangelistic Temple Bookstore.
