breaking and entering a South
Bahamia home while con-
cerned with Dale Scottie
Pierre, 18, of 16B Pinetree
Close, Seahorse Village, who
has already been charged in

dies in a suspected

choking incident

A THREE-YEAR-OLD girl has died in
Governor's Harbour, Eleuthera after eating
turkey souse, in what police suspect is a chok-
ing incident
Jayden Bain ate the souse some time around
8pm, according to Acting Assistant Commis-
sioner Hulan Hanna, and some hours later,
she began having difficulty breathing.
Her mother took Jayden to the local clinic for

Mr Hanna said that foul play is not suspect-

Car crashes

into wall
A DRIVER escaped unscathed
when he crashed his car into a wall
while driving in Shirley Street at
around 2pm yesterday.
The man driving the now-totalled
vehicle claims he was hit by a white
Honda Civic as the driver tried to
move from the right lane into the left,
causing him to lose control.
As his car crashed into the wall it
brought down part of the concrete
structure, ripping the bumper and
side panel from the vehicle, and
smashing the windscreen.
However the driver and his pas-
senger were unharmed.
The driver of the white Honda
Civic drove away before police
arrived at the scene.
Witnesses are urged to call police
on 322-4444.

of the Albany development were held up at
gunpoint on Wednesday by two masked
The robbery occurred at 4pm on the site of

their getaway.
Mr Hanna said that at this stage of the inves-
tigation, police are still not sure how the men
None of the workers was injured in the inci-
dent, police report.

KINGDOM Glory Records,
the label of Mount Tabor Full
Gospel Baptist Church, is mak-
ing its mark internationally.
KGR officially released a
new CD and DVD package,
"Wave of Glory," on June 24
to Wal-Mart stores across the
United States and Canada.
Selling for $16.98, the pack-
age has received "rave reviews"
according to Mount Tabor, and
is experiencing a steady increase
in sales and recognition for
longest airplay on the radio.
This novice KGR project is
"holding its own" against some
of the biggest names in gospel
music whose CDs debuted the
same time, Mount Tabor
According to Jerry Parries,
president of Tehillah Records
Music Group, Orlando Florida,
the "Wave of Glory" CD/DVD
is popular in the United States.
"The project entered the Bill-
board Gospel music charts at
number 10, and for a new artist
with no history that is excel-
lent," Mr Parries said.
Emphasizing that Wal-Mart

is the number one retailer for
Gospel Music in the US he
added, "as president of Tehillah
Music Group, it is my role to
position the Wave of Glory pro-
ject for the best possible chance
to win and be widely exposed in
a saturated US market."
Nehemiah Hield, managing
director of Kingdom Glory
Records, marked the accom-
plishment as "a wonderful
thing for KGR."
The former lead singer of
Baha Men said, "We are a rela-
tively new company, so to have
this kind of response to our first
release speaks volumes of the
hard work that went into the
project. I have high expecta-
tions that Wave of Glory will

not only impact America and
Canada, but the entire world."
Congratulating the KGR
team on their efforts, Bishop
Neil Ellis, pastor of Mount
Tabor Full Gospel Baptist
Church, said that he sees the
international release of the
CD/DVD as a major part of his
"latest assignment from God,
to become a carrier of his glory
around the world."

Corruption report on Turks and Caicos

WHILE reporting the findings of a House
of Commons foreign affairs committee of a
"palpable climate of fear" in need of investi-
gation in the Turks and Caicos Islands, The
Sunday Telegraph of London also observed
that "thanks to the tourist business, the econ-
omy's growth rate (in the Turks-Caicos) since
2000 has been one of the highest in the
"The islands," said The Sunday Telegraph,
"have become one of the most glamorous
destinations in the Caribbean." World-class
hotels, reported the London newspaper, have
proliferated and "most tourists are from
Canada and the United States, but the islands
are also popular with British holidaymak-
It has been a long time since such a glow-
ing report has been written about the
However, the Turks and Caicos with its
35,000 inhabitants, has its problems, which if
reports are to be believed, could do a great
deal of damage to its international image.
According to The Telegraph, "behind the
sleek image, the Commons foreign affairs
committee discovered an alarming picture
akin to a Graham Greene novel."
Unlike the Bahamas, the Turks and
Caicos, still a British overseas territory under
Foreign Office supervision, is subject to inves- ...
tigation for any hint of corruption. One can
imagine the field day such a committee could
have had in the Bahamas over the past 35
years if these islands still had colonial sta-
tus. The UK committee made its discovery
when it was carrying out a routine survey of
Britain's 14 remaining overseas territories.
During the inquiry the British MPs received
more than 50 letters from islanders com-
plaining of "rampant" corruption in the gov-
ernment, political interference with the judi-
ciary and the suppression of freedom of
The House of Commons Foreign Affairs
Committee has urged officials to call an
inquiry into the administration of the islands.
The MPs said they were given a DVD of a
meeting of Premier Michael Misick's party
when he denounced the opposition as "trai-
tors". Maybe we should send them a Hansard
transcript of the House of Assembly when
former MP Bradley Roberts denounced The
Tribune publisher as a terrorist likening her
writings to a "terrorist throwing a bomb into

occasion when Prime Minister Hubert Ingra-
ham (in the days when he was still in the
Opposition) was accused of treason by the
Pindling government alleging that he had
given information to a U.S. agency about
drug dealers who came and went in these
islands seemingly with a great deal of free-
dom. It appeared that the document on which
the allegation was based might have been a
When the UK MPs visited the Turks and
Caicos to investigate the allegations, their
report said that "alarmingly for a British
overseas territory, many individuals expressed
great concern about being seen to be talking
to British parliamentarians, and some indi-
viduals declined to meet us altogether for
this reason."
It urged the British government to estab-
lish a commission of inquiry with full pro-
tection for witnesses who come forward.
"We witnessed this climate of fear for our-
selves when we visited the Turks and Caicos
Islands," the report said.
According to the Associated Press, "many
of the claims centred on Turks and Caicos
Premier Michael Misick, who is alleged to
have built up a multimillion dollar fortune
since he was elected in 2003." When elected,
Mr Misick declared assets of only $50,000.
"Tourism is the islands' main industry,"
reported the AP, "and the economy has
grown rapidly since 2000. The legislators said
they had received claims that Premier Misick
and other government ministers had enriched
themselves by selling off government-owned
land to property developers."
Mr Misick has denied corruption and said
the House of Commons Foreign Affairs
Committee had presented an "unbalanced
view" of his government. He claimed that
the report relied "primarily on allegations
made by political operatives of the PDM
(Opposition party) whose performance con-
tinues to demonstrate that their agenda is
largely influenced and driven by an unhealthy
desire for power and selfish ambition," Mr
Misick said.
The fact-finding UK mission condemned
the failure of the Foreign Office or the
island's governor, Richard Tauwhare, to take

Wilchcombe's tirade unbelievable!

EDITOR, The Tribune.
I COULD not believe the
tirade spewing from Mr Obie Wil-
chombe as he castigated the Min-
ister of Tourism.
I think the opposition needs a
gentle reminder that you should
only compare apples with apples.
When Obie became Minister
of Tourism there were some
things that he inherited amongst
which the rich legacy left by Mr
Vincent Vanderpool Wallace, the
former Director General.
There were also items over
which the PLP had no control
(this may surprise them)- the
World stock markets in 2002 were
testing new psychological bound-
aries, there was no perceived or
real credit crisis and no subprime

Our tourism product was buoyant
due, in part, to all of this.
It seems that to whom much is
given much is required; whenever
the present Government assumes
power there is usually some cata-
strophe to hound it, Hurricane
Andrew springs to mind.
I am not sure that the Opposi-
tion is aware that not all Bahami-
ans suffer from short or conve-
nient memory lapses neither
do we all suffer from ignorance! I

call on them to be better behaved
and stop insulting the intelligence

Fashion designer Peter

Nygard receives lifetime

achievement award

designer and philanthropist Peter
Nygard received a lifetime
achievement award for his con-
tribution to the country.
The award Was presented at a
fashion show held during the 12th
annual Bahamas Fashion Week.
During the show, at the Rain-
forest Theatre at the Whyndam
Crystal Palace Resort, Mr Nygard
was heralded as an inspiration to
emerging designers by Kevin
Strakan, owner of Fifth Avenue
Marketing and Modeling Agency
and organiser of the event.
"This particular event certainly
touches my heart, this place
touches my heart," said Mr
Nygard, a permanent resident in
the Bahamas for the past 25 years.
"It's nice to support the fashion

industry in the Bahamas. I

Fourth CARICOM/Spain Summit
taking place in Madrid today

THE fourth CARICOM/Spain
Summit takes place at the Mon-
cloa Palace in Madrid today.
It is being held against the
backdrop of the celebration of
CARICOM Day at the World's
Fair in Zaragoza, Spain.
CARICOM chairman Baldwin
Spencer, prime minister of
Antigua and Barbuda and Jose
Luis Zapatero, the prime minister
of Spain, will jointly preside over
the summit, to be held at the
palace housing the offices of the
Spanish prime minister.
The fourth summit follows the
first in Port of Spain, Trinidad
and Tobago in 1999 and the oth-
er two in Madrid in 2002 and
Spain has emerged as the major
destination for CARICOM's
exports to Europe, accounting for
30 per cent of the export trade in
2006, while Spain for its part is
the main European exporter to
the region with exports account-
ing for 20 per cent of the Euro-
pean total in 2006.
Spain has indicated a strong
interest in becoming a member
of the Caribbean Development
Bank (CDB) and in making a

contribution to the CARICOM
Development Fund.
Negotiations are underway in
respect of a proposed Spanish
contribution to the Special Devel-
opment Fund of the CDB.
The Caribbean heads of gov-
ernment will seek to bring their
Spanish counterpart up to date
with respect to: the CARICOM
Single Market and Economy;
heavily indebted emerging mar-
ket countries, of which seven of
the top 10 are CARICOM mem-
ber states; the Caribbean Sea Ini-
tiative which seeks to have the
Caribbean Sea internationally
recognized as a special area in the
context of sustainable develop-
ment; and trade and investment
in the region.
Spain is interested in discussing
the Alliance of Civilisations which
was established in 2005 by Spain
and Turkey to create global polit-
ical space to combat a lack of
mutual understanding and com-
munication between the western
world and the Arab-Islamic
world. A conference on this ini-
tiative was held in Saint Lucia in

company (worth $800,000) to a
$1 billion. Forty years I've been in
this industry and people ask me
about what it takes ... When you
throw your heart into it, the rest
follows," said Mr Nygard, whose
2008 summer collection closed last
night's show.
Bahamian designers Raphael
Munnings, Nicky Hasting and
Kristen Douglas also displayed
their new collections at the event.
Bahamas Fashion Week runs until
July 12.

COB's SIS initiative

is applauded by


THE College of the
Bahamas' Small Island Sustain-
ability Programme, created in
response to the many environ-
mental issues facing the world
today, is the first of its kind any-
Backed by a $10 million
donation by the Freedom Foun-
dation and the allocation of 10
acres of land by the Bahamian
government, it demonstrates
that COB has taken a proactive
stance in light of the growing
global concern about proper
management of natural
"We need to find solutions to
the complex challenges we face
as a small island developing
state," explained Janyne Hod-
der, president of the college.
"To improve the quality of life,
to create sustainable prosperity:
we need problem solvers,
researchers, innovators, inven-
tors, designers, policy makers,
writers, developers and entre-
preneurs. The programme will
produce such change agents."
"This is a unique opportunity
for countries like the Bahamas
to focus on issues that affect us
specifically," said Eric Carey,
executive director of the
Bahamas National Trust.
"We have 25 national parks,
spanning 700,000 acres of land
in our country. Programmes
such as SIS will bring more
awareness to the importance of
these types of natural
Mr Carey also explained that


t I

the programme is significant
from an economic perspective,
as it presents many opportuni-
ties in areas such as agriculture
and ecotourism.
"Persons with large proper-
ties on the family islands will
now have an opportunity to
develop those properties as eco-
lodges and other types of
ecofriendly projects."
He added that his organisa-
tion, with funding provided by
the European Union, is working
on an ecotourism project in
"We will be looking to devel-
op linkages with COB to assist
us to develop our programmes."
Many environmentalists, like
Eleanor Philips, director of the
Nature Conservancy, have
expressed their delight over the
donation by the Freedom Foun-
"It is a fantastic initiative and
I'd like to commend the college
for bringing this to the Bahami-
an people," she said.
Jinny McKinney, founder of
Cans 4 Kids, said: "This is an
excellent idea and I believe that
it is a wonderful opportunity for
our country.
"As long as the college focus-
es its attention on finding solu-
tions that are applicable to us -
bearing in mind mind-set, belief
systems and ways of operation -

"We need to find
solutions to the
challenges we
face as a small
developing state."
Janyne Hodder

this has the making of magnifi-
cent programme."
The SIS undergraduate pro-
gramme will focus on four inno-
vative areas, including two
bachelor of science degrees: one
in environmental and ecosys-
tems management and one in
integrated development plan-
The other two will be bache-
lor of arts degrees: one in eco-
tourism and development and
one in policy studies.
The new complex will include
a main building with conference
rooms, exhibition space, a
library, a plant tissues lab, a
plant soil and water analysis lab,
an animal science lab, and ento-
mology lab, a plant pathology
lab, a food chemistry lab, a food
sensory facility, classrooms, and
faculty and administration
A farm house, a green house
and a chemical storage facility
will also be introduced.
Graduates of the programme
will be able to pursue careers
in environmental policy, agri-
culture sciences, compli-
wholesale/retail trade, food pro-
duction, urban/rural planning,
construction, development, eco-
tqurism, manufacturing, tech-
nology, and conservation
among others.

THE elegant and sophisti-
cated seventh annual Legacy
Ball was the setting for the
presentation of the Sir Lyn-
den Pindling Foundation's
gift of $300,000 to The Col-
lege of The Bahamas. This
sum is the result of fund
raising started seven years
ago, and is allocated to sup-
port the Harry C Moore
Library at The College of
The Bahamas. Benefactors
to the Lyford Cay Founda-
tion, College faculty and
staff and other loyal donors
have generously supported
the Library project over the
years and the Sir Lynden
Pindling Foundation joins
this donor group with this
contribution. A spokesman
said the College was delight-
ed to be the prime benefi-
ciary df, the foundation's

generosity aimed at honour-
ing Sir Lynden and support-
ing the vision to create the
University of The Bahamas,
a vision he wholeheartedly
Monique Pindling-John-
son, co-Chairperson of the
Sir Lynden Pindling Foun-
dation, said, "We at the
foundation are very pleased
to make this donation to
The College and are espe-
cially happy that my father's
achievements will be
remembered in the new
library. We made a pledge
to President Hodder that we
would give $300,000 this
year and now we are deter-
mined to raise another
$200,000 to ensure the Lyn-
den Pindling room in the
library will be built."
The new Harry C Moore

Library is now under con-
struction on the corner of
Tucker Road and Thomp-

new library do, indeed,
include the creation of a
dedicated section within the
archives, commemorating
the impact and legacy of Sir
Lynden with documents,
special collections and mem-
orabilia illustrating his life.
College Librarian, Willa-
mae Johnson, was delighted
with the donation saying,
"Our new library'will be
more than a university
library; it will be a commu-
nity library that will serve
the information needs of the
nation. As such, it will be
accessible to all and we are
very grateful to the Sir Lyn-"

Paul Moss and Fayne
Thompson, attorneys and
EPA critics, claim there are
legal precedents that show
that a certain provision of the
agreement cannot be enacted
without a referendum being
put to the Bahamian people.
He claimed on Tuesday that
for this reason the Bahamian
constitution will "save" the
Bahamas from the EPA by
forcing the government to
offer citizens the right to vote
on the trade agreement when
it has otherwise indicated that
it does not intend to do so.
Article 227 of the EPA calls
for the institution of a "joint
which shall "supervise the
implementation" of the EPA.
The council will be formed
of members of the Council of
the European Union, of the
European commission and
representatives of CARIFO-
RUM states.
The council "shall have the
power to take decisions in
respect of all matters covered
by this agreement. The deci-
sions taken shall be binding
on the parties and the signa-
tory CARIFORUM states,"
it reads.
Mr Moss claimed that gov-
ernment's intention to sign
the agreement'in light of this

"It runs counter to our
Constitution where our courts
have inherent jurisdiction."

Attorney Paul Moss on government's
intention to sign the agreement in light of
Article 227 on EPA

provision amounts to an
unconstitutional "attempted
usurpation of (the) authori-
ty" of the Bahamian courts.
"It runs counter to our
Constitution where our courts
have inherent jurisdiction,"
he told The Tribune.
Mr Moss and his colleague
Mr Thompson both represent
Bahamians Agitating for a
Referendum on Free Trade
(BARF), an organisation
which was originally formed
in opposition to the Free
Trade Agreement of the
Americas, and later opposed
CARICOM's Common Sin-
gle Market and Economy
before turning to the EPA.
They have both called for
government to allow a refer-
endum on the EPA but Min-
ister of State for Finance
Zhivargo Laing has previous-
ly indicated that government
is not disposed to such an
option at this stage.
Mr Thompson was a panel-
list at a town meeting on the
EPA held on Tuesday
evening by the Bahamas
Association of Compliance
Officers with Mr Laing and
Chamber of Commerce trade
consultant, Hank Ferguson -
while Mr Moss spoke when
he stood to ask a question of
the panellists after their pre-
Mr Thompson said that a
Jamaican case sets a prece-
dent for the process the
Bahamas would have to fol-
low if it wanted to institute
the agreement given the pro-
vision for the formation of the
decision-making council.
In 2004 the Privy Council
ruled that any attempt by the
Jamaican government to
switch its final court of appeal
from the Privy Council to the

"-- U--

Caribbean Court of Justice
could only be done if
Jamaican citizens chose to do
so in a referendum as it would
otherwise be unconstitutional.
According to the two attor-
neys, the case reflects the
challenge that would face the
Bahamas if it goes ahead with
signing the EPA.
"Whenever the government
comes to bring this agreement
to parliament (to enact the
enabling legislation) it must
be challenged on the basis
that our constitution provides
that the Supreme Court of the
Bahamas has inherent juris-
diction to deal with any mat-
ter touching and concerning
members of the Bahamian
public or those who are in
this jurisdiction," said Mr
"The government may have
its way on signing on to this
'always delayed' agreement,

Exuma a modern

docking facility and

trans-shipment centre

Former MP and
Cabinet minister

E xuma has over the
years evolved as one
of the most important centres
in all the Family Islands, behind
only Grand Bahama and Aba-
co. But quite obviously espe-
cially since the development at
Emerald Bay it is destined to
be second only to New Provi-
Mindful of this vision, seri-
ous thought, attention, and
planning must now be given to
enhancing every facility in Exu-
ma that can play an important
part in its orderly development.
Most grievously needed in that
regard is a modern docking
facility, which would accommo-
date increased cargo shipping
requirements, and which sensi-
bly ought to be located away
from George Town with its pre-
dominantly touristic outlook
and activities.
New Providence is experi-
encing problems because of the
present location of its docking
facilities and the authorities are
seeking a solution. It would be
wise to use foresight for Exu-
ma. In planning a modern
docking facility for Exuma, con-
sideration should be given to
the following facts:
It should be constructed at a
location that could be used as a
trans-shipment point to all of
the islands to the south i.e.
Ragged Island, Long Island,
Acklins, Crooked Island, Long
Cay, Mayaguana, Inagua and
possibly the Turks and Caicos
It should be located at a
point that would not necessi-
tate vessels having to enter Exu-
ma Sound in bad weather and
from the Sound into Elizabeth
It 9Hi.utd b' located where "
it would not cause heavy ground
transportation through George
Town and other touristic
The former naval base site,
which is now under active con-
sideration, has serious flaws. It
is a shallow area that needs and
will continue to need constant
dredging both up to and at the
docking facility. It is in the heav-
ily populated touristic part of

Great Exuma. For trans-ship-
ment purposes, when leaving
George Town to go to the
Southern Islands, one would
have to go east around the
northern tip of Long Island into
the Atlantic Ocean. This is
impossible in bad weather con-
ditions. There is no passage
between Exuma and Long
Island. This circuitous route
necessitates going into the
rough Atlantic or back up to
the northwestern tip of
Baraterre around Pudding Point.
and then south to the other
Islands thereby back tracking
many miles.
It should be obvious that the
anchorage at Pudding Point on
the northwest tip of Baraterre is
the ideal location for the port.
The Pudding Point site meets
all of the following require-
It is protected from the
northwest, north, northeast,
east, southeast and south. The
prevailing winds of any conse-
quence come from those direc-.
It has high land right to the
deep water in the protected
It has two major deep water
channels from both the north-
west bank (which will minimise
the necessity of entering Exuma
Sound) and the other entrance
from Exuma Sound during
good weather
The site is just over two
miles from Baraterre and the
continuing road system through
Exuma. Little -or .no dredging
would have to be done either
initially or on an ongoing basis
This location would not
require an unreasonable expen-
diture of funds and would yield
many benefits
A facility at Pudding Point
would infuse economic activity
in the general area inclusive of
the southern Exuma Cays and
contribute to the sustainability
of the area
The need for and prof-
itability of a container terminal

at the facility would become
obvious This project could be
commenced now on an experi-
mental basis by building a gov-
ernment dock inside Pudding
Point harbour and a road to
Baraterre. The mail boat could
stop there initiating service to
Baraterre, Stuart Manor,
Rolleville, Steventon and south-
eastward to Farmers Hill includ-
ing Emerald Bay. This could be
done at a nominal cost.
It would be remembered that
in years past, mail boats would
stop at Rolleville and Rokers'
Point weather permitting, on
their way to George Town. The
dock at pudding Point would
greatly reduce the vehicular
traffic to George Town and the
mail boat could continue to
George Town if desired.

The Naval Base
As an adjunct to the above,
the Naval Base site is in an
unattractive state and it should
be beautified. The vendors at
the Fish Fry should be encour-
aged and financially supported
in improving their businesses.
The site ought to be used for
cultural and civic events, always
mindful that various resort
properties, the primary school
and the mini-hospital, which are
being built, are all in the imme-
diate vicinity. Good judgement
in this matter is imperative.

Elizabeth Harbour should be
re-named the Rolly Gray Har-
bour, it should be cleaned up,
enhanced and promoted as the
Cruising Capital of the south-
ern Bahamas and the home of
sloop sailing in the country.
In consideration of all the
above, I would be privileged to
assist in any way possible which
would cause the projects to

Practical or Luxury?

You may ask the question: Is it practical
to own a Mercedes-Benz or is it a luxury?
Well, Mercedes-Benz would like to ask
you a question. Are excellent gas
mileage, top safety standards and
superior driving technology considered a
luxury? Mercedes-Benz doesn't think so
and you shouldn't either. You deserve to
get the most out of your gas dollar.

You and your family deserve to be safe
and comfortable when maneuvering
through our nation's less-than-perfect
roadways. That's why these features and

Laing moves to

reassure on EPA

FROM page one
Bahamas, Mr Laiag explained
that there is a section in the

agreement called the "tempo-
rary entry of workers for busi-
ness purposes" clause which
allows certain types of skilled


workers to enter the country for
a limited period of time.
He said: "What (the clause)
does.is it defines very specifical-
ly what arrangements would
exist for about four categories
of people.
"(The first category), we call
them 'Key personnel'. So if you
are an investor and you estab-
lish an investment in the
Bahamas the opportunity exists
for you to have your key per-
sonnel, CEOs (Chief Executive
Officers), CFOs (Chief Finan-
cial Officers), come and work in
your operation for up to three
"Graduate trainees" are a sec-
ondcategory of workers for
whom the process by which they
can enter the Bahamas to work
is defined in the agreement.
"So for instance if you have
an operation in Germany and a
subsidiary in the Bahamas and
you have a college graduate who
is a trainee there and you want
to give them some exposure in
your operation in the Bahamas
you would be able to provide
some opportunity for them to
be able to do so up to I think 18
months or so."
Meanwhile, he added, there
are also provisions for workers
called "sales persons."
These are people who "for a
90-day period can come and
market a product they might
have to a Bahamian market," he
The minister of state
explained that under the
Bahamas' current immigration
policy there are already
"arrangements for each of
those" kinds of workers to enter
the Bahamas to work.
"The only thing that this
agreement does is define those
in the agreement for the rela-
tionship that exists between
Europe and the Cariforum com-
munity but it doesn't require you
to do anything beyond what you
now do other than stipulate in
the context of that relationship
how those people would be
He said: "That does not mean,
for instance, that people will
show up at the Lynden Pindling
International Airport and say
well we are now all signed on to

John Pinder hasn't

ruled out seeking

political office

FROM page one
"You know something, I have now come to the realisation
that too many people go into politics and they really don't in
particular understand the national issues or certainly they
don't understand the public service.
"I believe certainly I have a contribution I probably can
make at another level but I have to wait on God's calling for
that because I don't see myself having the finances to get in
involved in frontline politics but if it's God's will I'll go for
"But I certainly would like to make a contribution on a
higher level, where I could cause some influence to be made on
some policy."
An issue he would like to see addressed is the creation of a
national pension scheme that would allow civil servants to
transfer their pension plan if they decide to relocate to the pri-
vate sector.
"I keep pushing this issue of (introducing) a national pension
scheme for the entire Bahamas to ensure that every worker in
this country has a pension plan in place so that if he or she
wishes to change a job, they can still take their pension bene-
fits with them.
"That's one of the things that's clogging up the public service
there are a number of civil servants who wish to go private or
move on, but the thing that keeps them in the public service is
that they have this pension they are looking forward to. If
that was a pension that could be transferred to another gov-
ernment corporation or a private agency, I believe a lot of them
would move on," he said.
Despite any aspirations to seek political office, Mr Pinder
contended that he has always remained bi-partisan when deal-
ing with union affairs:
"I stayed out of the general elections, I never campaigned for
(any) political party and I didn't campaign for any candidate.
I stayed out of it simply because I always want to have a neu-
tral and an independent position on anything I have to address
concerning a government decision that is not favourable to
workers in our country and particularly in the public service."

': Man dies suddenly on

crabbing expedition

TRAGEDY struck at Eight
Mile Rock early on the Inde-
pendence Day holiday, when a
man died suddenly while on a
crabbing expedition in West
Grand Bahama.
Donald Pinder, 42, of
Pinedale, Eight Mile Rock, was
in a bushy area around Bootle
Bay, along with his wife and oth-
er family members, catching
crabs, when he suddenly col-
lapsed at around 9hm.
Other persons crabbing in the
vicinity were alerted to the inci-
dent and rushed to the family's
assistance. They help transport
Mr Pinder to the West End Clin-
ic, where he was pronounced
dead upon arrival.

The Central Detective Unit
and West End Police officers
' examined the body and saw no
signs of physical injury.
Foul play is not suspected in
this matter at this time. However,
an autopsy will be performed at
the Rand Memorial Hospital in
order to determine the exact
cause of death.
A 19-year-old man from
Bimini is recuperating from a
stab wound to his back, which
he received early on Indepen-
dence Day during an altercation
with another man at a night club.

Bay was at the Elk's Bar in Alice
Town, Bimini, at around mid-

Astronauts handling

explosives on spacewalk
TWO space station astronauts took a daring spacewalk Thursday to
cut into the insulation of their descent capsule and remove an explo-
sive bolt with firecracker force enough to blow off their hands,
according to Associated Press.
Flight controllers in Moscow assured Sergei Volkov and Oleg
Kononenko, both Russians, that the bolt would not detonate and
that the unprecedented job would help ensure their safe return to
Earth in the Soyuz capsule this fall. Nonetheless, Mission Control
repeatedly urged the men to be careful as they worked near the
NASA said its own engineers were convinced the spacemen would
be in no danger, and that it would be all right for them to put the explo-
sive bolt in a blast-proof canister and take it into the space station for
eventual return to Earth.
The past two Soyuz descents have been steep, off-course and bone-
jarring, and the Russian Space Agency wants to avoid the problem
when Volkov and Kononenko fly home in October. The capsule cur-
rently docked at the. space station ferried up the two Russians in
Kononenko used a serrated knife to cut away the thick shiny insu-
lation surrounding the bolt a tool normally shunned by space-
walkers because of the possibility of piercing their pressurized suits or
gloves. It was a messy job, with shreds of the multilayer insulation float-
ing every which way.
As the spacewalk hit the three-hour mark, the spacewalkers began
installing devices to eliminate static electricity.
They had a wrench for removing the 3-inch pyrotechnic bolt, one of
10 used to separate two parts of the module during re-entry.
During Soyuz descents this past April and in October 2007, these
two sections did not separate properly, leading to so-called ballistic
entries that submitted the crews to far higher gravity forces than nor-
Russian engineers suspect some of the explosive bolts did not fire.
By disabling the bolts in this suspect location, there should be no'
mechanical hang-up during the October descent, officials said.

Environmentalists voice concerns despite UN

world heritage site status for butterfly reserve


fear the decision to list Mex-
ico's wintering grounds of the
Monarch butterfly as a U.N.
world heritage site may do
little to halt deforestation that
threatens the butterflies.
according to Associated Press.,
UNESCO bestowed the
global landmark distinction
Monday on the Monarch
reserve, a series of mountain
forests west of Mexico City
where the butterflies spend
the winter after migrating
thousands of miles (kilome-
ters) from the United States
and Canada.
"The listing isn't going to
produce results unless there is
an integral plan for the
reserve," Mexican environ-
mentalist Ivan Restrepo said
Tuesday. "I hope this serves
as a wake-up call and doesn't

just serve as an advertise-
The Mexican government
says it has turned the corner
in defending the dense fir
forests that shelter the Mon-
archs from the winter cold.
Ernesto Enkerlin, Mexico's
commissioner of natural pro-
tected areas, said the defor-
estation problem today is
confined to a few small farm-
ing communities that account
for about 6 percent of the
139,000-acre (56,259 hectare)


It is mostly in those areas
that the reserve continues to
lose about 100 hectares (247
acres) of trees per year.
He acknowledged "it's a
disaster" in the problem com-
munities where much of the
land is clear-cut, but said

trees are starting to grow
back in the rest of the
reserve, where local residents
are cooperating.
"We are entering into a
new phase of the Monarch
butterfly reserve, one of
recovery," Enkerlin said.
Boundary disputes, indige-
nous issues and local rivalries
are also making it difficult for
authorities to work in those
areas, he said.
Enkerlin acknowledged
that illegal logging was so bad
at the reserve three years ago
that if authorities had pro-
posed it World Heritage sta-
tus, "we would have gotten
absolutely nowhere."
Environmentalist Homero
Aridjis, Mexico's representa-
tive to UNESCO, said the
current government is mak-
ing greater efforts to protect
the butterflies, and that the
UNESCO listing may help by

boosting the flow of tourists
to the reserve, providing
financial incentives for
It also may help change the
attitude of local farmers
whose land constitutes much
of the reserve.'

Amid oil boom, indlation

makes Saudis fee' poorer

Associated Press Writer

RIYADH, Saudi Arabia -
Sultan al-Mazeen recently
stopped at a gas station to fill
up his SUV, paying 45 cents a
gallon about one-tenth
what Americans pay these
But the Saudi technician
says Americans shouldn't be
jealous. Inflation that has hit
30-year highs on everything
el,.e in the kingdom is making
Saudis feel poorer despite the
flush of oil money.
"I tell the Americans, don't
feel envious because gas is
cheaper here," said al-
Mazeen, 36. "We're worse off
than before."
While Saudis don't feel the
pain at the pump, they feel it
everywhere else, paying more
at grocery. stores and restau-
rants and for rent and con-
struction material. While the
country is getting richer selling
oil at prices that climbed to a
record $145 per barrel last
week, inflation has reached
almost 11 percent, breaking
double-digits for the first time
since the late 1970s.
"Gas prices are low here, so
what?" said Muhammad
Abdullah, a 60-year-old
retiree. "What can I do with
gas? Drink it? Take it with me
to the supermarket?"
Al-Mazeen says his month-
ly grocery bill has doubled -
to $215 compared to last
year, when oil was at around
$70 a barrel: During that time
period, the price of rice has
doubled to about 72 cents a
pound, and a pound of beef
has gone up more than a third
to about $4..,'
Moreover, Saudis are grap-'7
piling with unemployment --
estimated at 30 percent among
young people aged 16 to 26
- and a stock market that is
down 10 percent since the
beginning of the year.
Many Saudis are realizing

"I tell the
don't feel
because gas
is cheaper
here. We're
worse off
than before."

Sultan al-Mazeen

that this oil boom will n
have the same impact as e
one in the 1970s, which reed
Saudis from rags to riles
This time, the wealtfhs"t
trickling down as fast cm the
same quantities.
One reason is the pigdom's
growing populatioprays John
Sfakianakis, chie1conormist
at the Saudi Briph Bank. In
the 1970s, the population of
Saudi Arabia Vis 9.5 million.
Today, it's 27.mnillion, includ-
ing 22 million Saudi citizens.
That meas the state, which
controls nearly all oil income,
has to spread the wealth
among rpre people. Besides a
genero.S social welfare sys-
tem tht includes free educa-
tion fom pre-school through
university and other benefits
for-itizens, the public sector
enploys some 2 million peo-
p and 65 percent of the bud-
fet goes to salaries.
"The state, yes, is wealthier,
but the state has close to three
times the amount of people it
has to cater for," said
Sfakianakis. "Even if Saudi
Arabia had lower inflation (in
the 1970s), the country and
the needs of the country are
bigger than what they used to

So the governn"t has less
room to raise 4es to help
people deal witigher prices.
The United pb Emirates
recently hike public sector
wages by 70d.rcent but if
the Saudidid the same,
theywoulavebeen hit by
budget elicits, Sfakianakis
addOthedGulf nations have

tion.. the UAE, inflation is

ftrrill Lynch report earlier
.is year.
But those nations have
much smaller populations and
so can spread their oil, gas and
financial riches faster and in
bigger quantities to ease thf
pain. As a result contra'
to their image in the Weste-
Saudis are far from le
wealthiest people in the alf.
The kingdom's per rpita
income is $20,700 -com-
pared with $67,000 fQ-)atar,
which has a popu].ion of
around a half milliouitizens.
In a recent inteiew with
Kuwait's Al-Siyawc- newspa-
per, King Abdull said "offi-
cials have suital' solutions"
and plans to figinflation.
"The government can use
its money to cet the soaring
prices of ba' commodities.
The kingdowrill also use its
financial reves to combat
inflation arbring everything
back to r'mal," the king
asserted, thout elaborating
on how.
Econ',ists say the main
source. inflation is higher

Saudi inflatio/,is als exac-
erbated by tht weakdollar,
because their ryal is rgged to
the U.S. currency, creasing
the cost of import-and the
kingdom impor' most of its
essential good' .
The influx ( oil money into
the econow also is a factor,

but it is nras major a cause
of inflatic as the other issues,
said Sfanakis and other
In rign that inflation will
not ssipate any time soon,
theaudi Cabinet decided on
Mch. 31 to reduce customs
(ies on 180 major foodstuffs,
Jnsumer goods and con-
,truction materials for at least
three years, according to a
report Sfakianakis wrote for
the Saudi British Bank.
Still, the kingdom is set to
enjoy a large budget surplus
because of high oil prices this
year. Oil export revenue is
expected to reach $260 billion
this year, according to a report
last month by Jadwa Invest-
ment, a private Saudi firm.
This compares with an aver-
age of just $43 billion per, year
throughout the 1990s, the
report said.
It forecast the budget sur-
plus will be $69 billion in 2008
compared to $47.6 billion in
But Saudi Arabia puts much
of its oil income into invest-
ments and assets abroad, in
part as a hedge in case oil
prices drop in the future,
squeezing the budget.
Sheik Abdul-Aziz Al
Sheikh, the kingdom's grand
mufti and top religious author-
ity, has urged the government
to fix prices on essential com-
"Every effort should be
made to contain rising prices
of goods all over the king-
dom," the mufti said during a
sermon in Riyadh in Febru-
ary, according to the Arab
News daily.

IN THIS PHOTO released by Nasser Azam's agent, Azam poses with his
paintings in his studio in London, on Friday, July 4, 2008, just before
going to Moscow's Star City cosmonaut training center. Azam was
among the three British artists who travelled Tuesday aboard a Russian
aircraft used for cosmonaut

Three artists get creative

in zero gravity; two fall ill

EVEN the black cat got queasy.
Three British artists tried this week to make art in zero gravity one
used the cat and a mouse for a performance piece aboard an aircraft
used to train cosmonauts, but only one completed his work. The oth-
er two artists felt ill, according to Associated Press.
The plane made 10 parabola-shaped flights before landing at
Moscow's Star City cosmonaut training center.
The artists experienced zero gravity in 23-second intervals during the
flight, a series of steep climbs and sharp drops that simulate weight-
While on board, artist Lyn Hagan filmed the predator-prey reactions
of the cat and mouse in zero-gravity conditions.
Both the cat and Hagan became sick after about three loops of the
plane, which cut.the piece short, said Nasser Azam, one of the artists
to ride the plane, nicknamed a "vomit comet." He said he did not feel
"What we found out was that the cat turned into a mouse," Azam
said. "The cat was a lot more scared than the mouse."
Neither animal was injured during the flight, Azam said.
Luke Jerram, the third artist on board, became ill and his project was
cut short.
A free-floating Azam, meanwhile, finished pre-prepared paintings
of disembodied figures inspired by the artist Francis Bacon. Azam
said he wanted to pay homage to Bacon's paintings.
"Quite frankly it was euphoric," Azam said after the flight. "There
were instances when I was painting upside down."
The former Merrill Lynch chief operating officer began his canvas-
es in London using paint and finished them on board using oil pastels.
Paint would have floated in zero-gravity conditions, he said.
Hagan conceived of the "Life In Space" project in 2004 and subse-
quently contacted the Russian Space Agency, which according to
Azam offered the flight free of charge.
Azain is now the artist-in-residence at London's County Hall Gallery,
which covered the project's remaining expenses.
The results of the trip will be on show at the County Hall Gallery in

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

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.

Dear Mr. Becker: I have been a

years and have followed with interest
your recounting of the exploits of
some of the most prominent players

matter, any other kind of champi-

least equal recognition as one of the

world's foremost players.
The only catch is that all my mar-
velous bids and plays take place
while I'm asleep, and I must confess
that there is an enormous difference
between the way I play when I'm
awake and the way I play when I'm
asleep. In case you don't believe me,
just ask my partners how I play when
I'm not in the land of Nod.
Here is a typical example of my
prowess. I played the hand just last
night while asleep, of course. I
was West and led the nine of spades.
My wife, Sapphira, won the trick
with the king and continued with the
ace and another spade.
I'm sure everybody would think
that South must now make the con-
tract, since his only losers, as the
cards lie, appear to be two diamond
tricks. But, as I stated earlier, these
players are totally unaware of the
brilliance of my play when I am in
the arms of Morpheus.
On Sapphira's ace of spades I
discarded the king of diamonds, and
on the third round of spades I dis-
carded the ace of diamonds! As a
result of these two plays, there was
nothing South could do to avoid
going down two.
Cordially yours, Ford E. Winx.

'Mix of players'
changes in
buyer group

Tribune Business
THE $320 million Four
Seasons Emerald Bay
Resort's receiver has told
The Tribune he is hoping the
hotel's potential buyer will
submit a revised proposal to
the Government in "the next
two to three weeks", its
investor mix having changed.
Russell Downs, a London-
based PricewaterhouseC-
oopers (PwC) partner, said a
completed purchase of Exu-
ma's 'anchor resort' proper-
ty was "a little way away",
given the need for Govern-
ment approval and the trans-
action's complexity,
although he hoped it would
close "soon".
"The next sort of two to
three weeks is the window
we are looking at," Mr
Downs said, when asked
about when the Four Sea-
sons Emerald Bay Resort's
proposed buyer would sub-
mit a revised bid to the Gov-
ernment, the first one having
been rejected by the Ingra-
ham administration.
He added: "We're in that
critical stage where my stat-
ed aim is to achieve a sale
of the resort, and hopefully
we will have constructive
news on that pretty soon."
Mr Downs indirectly con-
firmed Tribune Business's
previous revelation that the
Government rejected the
initial $125 million offer by
Ambrose Holdings
(Bahamas) due to concerns
over whether the group had
the financial wherewithal
and ability to take the Four
Seasons Emerald Bay
Resort forward and com-
plete its full build-out.
When this sequence of
events was put to Mr
Downs, he replied: "That's
neatly put." He also con-
firmed that "the mix of play-
ers has changed" in the buy-
ing group, indicating that
Ambrose Holdings
(Bahamas) may no longer
be playing the lead role and
that other investors, with
greater equity capital and
resort industry expertise,
may have been brought in
to convince the Government
that the deal should be

Legal action


on 'retroactive' tax move

Tribune Business Editor
IT IS "highly likely" that the Government
and Customs Department will face legal action
over attempts to "retroactively" apply the
higher 2008-2009 Budget tax rates to 'post
paid' bonded good sales that occurred dur-
ing the previous Budget year, a former Grand
Bahama Chamber of Commerce president
told Tribune Business.
Christopher Lowe, operations manager at
Kelly's (Freeport), who is consulting an attor-
ney on his legal options after the company's
submission of taxes collected in June on 'post
paid' over-the-counter bonded goods sales
was rejected, suggested there were four poten-
tial avenues for seeking legal recourse.
The first, he said, was to seek a Supreme
Court injunction preventing Bahamas Cus-
toms from applying the new and often high-

er Tariff and Excise Act duty rates con-
tained in the 2008-2009 Budget to 'post paid'
sales that took place in May and June 2008,
the final months of the previous fiscal year.
Given that the new Tariff and Excise Act
tax rates had yet to be properly Gazzetted by
publishing them in a national newspaper,
something required to make them law, Mr
Lowe suggested that Grand Bahama Port
Authority (GBPA) licensees ask the courts to
determine whether the new duty rates and

Concern expressed about work
permit fees being made retroactive

Tribune Business Editor
THE Bahamas Real Estate
Association's (BREA) presi-
dent has told Tribune Busi-
ness he is receiving calls from
the group's members express-
ing concern that "many" prop-
erty transactions are being
held up by the wait for the
2008-2009 Budget tax breaks
to become law.
The Budget introduced
numerous real estate and con-
struction industry-related tax
breaks, particularly on the
Stamp Tax and Real Property
Tax, but William Wong said
BREA members and their
clients were still waiting for
these changes to be Gazzetted
and thus become law, so they
could take advantage of them.
"That is an issue, and we're
waiting for this thing to
become legal," Mr Wong told
Tribune Business. "It can't
happen until the Budget is
"Right now, that's holding
up a lot of closings and sales,
because this thing with the
Gazette is not happening.
We've been told it's immi-
Although he did not have
numbers, Mr Wong said the
failure to Gazette and bring
into law the tax incentives
designed to stimulate the real
estate industry, especially the
first-time homebuyer market,
had delayed "many sales"
based on the calls he was
receiving from BREA-
licensed realtors.
"In know this is affecting
some of my members," Mr
Wong said. "I did get calls
from a number of my mem-
bers that there is a hold-up
because this thing has not
been made law yet."
Christopher Lowe, opera-
tions manager at Kelly's
(Freeport), told Tribune Busi-
ness that attorneys had
informed him that they were
experiencing difficulty in clos-
ing real estate transactions,
too, due to the failure to pub-
lish and Gazette in the news-

headings could also be enforced for July.
"Customs has rejected our [Kelly's
Freeport] duty paid entry of June," Mr Lowe
told Tribune Business.
Customs had done so, he explained, on the
grounds that the new Tariff and Excise Act
rates were now in force and applied retroac-
tively to post-paid over-the-counter bonded
goods sales in May and June.

EPA compliance

costs may be no

more than $2m

Tribune Business Reporter
THE costs associated with the Bahamas
implementing its.Economic Partnership Agree-
ment obligations (EPA) with the European
Union will possibly be no more than $2 million,
although the minister of state for finance,
Zhivargo Laing, said that he was hesitant to put
an exact figure out.
Speaking at a Bahamas Association of Com-
pliance Officers (BACO) seminar on the EPA,
Mr Laing said much of that expense will go
towards the upgrading of operational systems
such as the Customs Department's computer
banks, and creating a Standards Bureau and
competition policies. These bodies will have
to be created, plus there is the actual cost
involved in creating EPA legislation and pass-
ing it into law.
However, he pointed out that many of the
changes or upgrades that will be made are ones
that have already been provided for, or ones
that the Government would have had to make

Mr Laing said the Bahamas also had most of
the necessary human resource capital already in
place, and had hired other personnel already.
Hank Ferguson, the trade advisor to the
Bahamas Chamber of Chamber, added that
some of the cost involved will be borne by the
EU through the contributions it makes not
only on a regional basis, but to individual coun-
tries as well.
He also indicated that the Bahamas would
receive some level of compensation for signing
on to the agreement.
Mr Ferguson indicated that two major factors
to be dealt with will be the competition aspect

EPA services offer further

scrutinised by industries

Tribune Business Reporter

THE Bahamas' services offer over
the Economic Partnership (EPA)
agreement with the European Union
(EU) has yet to be submitted, a gov-
ernment minister saying it went back
to certain industries for further consu-
lation and had just been returned to
the Cabinet Office for further vetting.
The minister of state for finance,
Zhivargo Laing, told persons attending
a Bahamas Association of Compliance .
Officers (BACO) seminar on the EPA
that the Cabinet had harboured con-
cerns about a several issues in the initial services
offer it reviewed.
It was then decided to send the services offer
back to the industries involved for additional
consultation. The document is now back with the
Cabinet, and when they are finished reviewing it,
the services offer will be submitted in its entirety
to the public.
Mr Laing said there were certain protocols in
place that meant the services offer cannot be giv-
en to the public until it has been signed off on by
the Cabinet. He was responding to concerns that
the services offer had not yet been made public.

Mr Laing also responded to concerns
raised by attorney Paul Moss and others
over whether the EPA would be incom-
patible with the Bahamian constitution,
particularly when it came to bringing
Bahamians Agitating for a
Referendum on Free Trade (BARF),
the group Mr Moss co-chairs, has main-
tained that an Act of Parliament giv-
ing the EPA legal standing in Bahami-
an law can never be passed, given that it
is a violation of the Bahamian consti-
Mr Moss also raised concerns about
who would bear the costs of any litiga-
tion stemming from the EPA whether
it would be companies or individuals with a griev-
ance, or the Bahamas on their behalf.
Mr Laing responded that the EPA's terms
and conditions would be well set-out in the hor-
izontal and vertical components of the
arrangement, which would assist in settling any
He pointed out that before the EPA proceed-
ed and was passed into law by Parliament, it
would need to be looked over very careful by
the Attorney's General Office and vetted. It was
unlikely that the Government would pass a law in
violation of the country's constitution.

Referendum urged

before EPA signing

Tribune Business
THE Government should
not commit the Bahamas to
signing the Economic Part-
nership Agreement (EPA)
with the European Union
(EU) before the Bahamian
people vote on it in a refer-
endum, an attorney said,
arguing that regional experts
believe the treaty may not
assist the national develop-
ment of individual Caribbean
Fayne Thompson, co-chair
of Bahamians Agitating for a
Referendum orl Free Trade
(BARF), the group that has

been very vocal in its oppo-
sition to the EPA, said: "The
Government does not have
the right to make such an
important decision behind
close doors, taken by 40 peo-
ple and maybe a few bureau-

Addressing a Bahamas
Association of Compliance
Officers (BACO) seminar on
the Economic Partnership
Agreement, Mr Thompson
stressed the whole question
of whether this nation should
sign the trade agreement
with the EU should be put
to the people in a referen-

Instead, under the current
process, the Government will
first decide whether the
Bahamas will sign the EPA -
the signing ceremony having
been pushed back to Sep-
tember 2008 before coming
to Parliament to present a
Bill to ratify and give effect
to the treaty's obligations in
Bahamian law.
Mr Thompson accused the
Government of not being as
forthcoming as it should
have been in providing infor-
mation on the EPA to the
Bahamian public, leading to
much confusion on the goods
and services offers the coun-
try is making.
For example, he said that
until that evening [Wednes-
day], he had been unaware
of just how the EPA's
requirements for the move-
ment of labour would be
Mr Thompson argued that
in his view it was irresponsi-
ble to have the Bahamas sign
on to such an agreement,
which various regional
experts have determined is
not one that may significant-
ly aid the Caribbean's devel-
He added out that in the
general scheme of things, the
exports the Bahamas sup-
plied to the EU seafoods
and Polymers accounted for
less than 0.1 per cent of the

EU's total imports each year.
Those Bahamian exports are
currently allowed into the
European Union duty and
quota free.
Zhivargo Laing, minister
of state for finance, who was
also a seminar panellist,
countered that whole Family
Island communities were
dependent on supplying lob-
sters (crawfish) to Bahami-
an wholesalers for onward
supply to the EU.

They needed that revenue
income to survive, and he
said no responsible govern-
ment could fail to protect the
rights of that sector of soci-
ety by losing duty-free access
to Europe.
Mr Laing also countered
that information on the EPA
was provided on his min-
istry's website, as this was
the best medium in which to
make it public, given the
sheer size of the agreement
The two men were joined
by the Bahamas Chamber of
Commerce's advisor on
trade, Hank Ferguson, at the
Town Meeting, which was
well attended.
Both panellists and audi-
ence members were very
vocal and passionate.

colm, Managing Director, Scotiabank
(Bahamas). "Customers can use their
new cards to pay for a wide variety of

"We are also very excited about the
new opportunities that our card will give

mail or by phone. The ScotiaCard is the

only card customers need for an easy,
fast and safe way to pay."
Customers can continue using their
ScotiaCard to access their bank accounts
at any Scotiabank branch or at automat-
ed teller machines (ATMs) across the
Bahamas. Now they will also have access
to over 900,000 Visa/Plus branded bank
machines worldwide.

has the added benefit of ScotiaCard Pro-
tect. This benefit that will be provided

aCard with Visa Debit, will insure items
bought with the ScotiaCard against theft

Mr Ingraham said during the Budget debate: "The amend-
ment to the Real Property Tax Act removes the cap of $35,000
as the maximum tax payable on real property valued over
$3.75 million, and provides for a reduced tax of 3/4 of 1 per cent
(reduced from 1 per cent) for homes valued at $5 million or
"These revenue measures will have a significant impact.
We expect the extensive changes to Stamp Tax and to the Real
Property Tax Act to enable middle class home owners to
enter into the housing market, to shop around for the most
inexpensive mortgages, and to assist them to develop their own
principal residence."
Meanwhile, Mr Lowe said the business community was also
upset with the way the increased work permit fees had been
He added that work permits approved before July 1, 2008,
and carrying an approval stamp dated before then, but not
received before July 1, were being charged the new, higher fees
and not the rate quoted on the approval letter.
Mr Lowe said that like Customs, it appeared that Immigra-
tion was applying the new work permit fees retroactively,
while an increase in the application fee from $25 to $100 had
also incensed some.

the extensive investment in infra-
structure, the company's cash
flow position decreased, with the
result that the Board deemed it
advisable not to declare a divi-
dend," Mr Sands wrote.
"This was a painful decision
but a prudent one, as the infor-
mation was not readily available.
We are hopeful, however, that
we can resume paying quarterly
dividends as soon as the 2008
financial statements are avail-
The Bahamas Supermarkets'
chairman's comments also con-
firmed Tribune Business's report
that cash flow had been impacted
by a "too aggressive" role-out of
the company's $4 million in-store
IT upgrades.
His letter also confirmed
another aspect of this newspa-
per's June 30, 2008, report, name-
ly that the 12-store City Markets
chain operator had suffered an
"invoice backlog", forcing it to
work its way through a mountain
of inventory and accounts
payables records that have now
been brought up to date.
Although Mr Sands' letter did
not confirm this, sources had also
previously told Tribune Business
that the cash flow issues had
impacted Bahamas Supermar-
kets' ability to buy bulk product
shipments from its main US-
based wholesale supplier, Super-
value International. As a result,
the company had been increas-
ingly sourcing product through
Bahamas-based wholesalers in
smaller purchases.
Describing Bahamas Super-
markets' problems as "tempo-
rary", and the company as "fun-
damentally sound", Mr Sands
added: "We fully expect to
restore its financial health in the
ensuing months."
As for the 2007 financial state-
ments, Mr Sands said the external
auditor, KPMG, had advised that
all "material aspects of their field-
work" had been completed. Pro-
vided Bahamas Supermarkets
was able to "satisfactorily
respond" to any queries raised
over the audit, the company was
"optimistic" that it could issue
the 2007 audited financial
statements by end-July 2008,
some 13 months after the year
Mr Sands also confirmed Tri-
bune Business's exclusive reve-
lation that the main factor behind
the 2007 audit delay was that
KMPG was forced to manually
verify hundreds of point-of-sale
transactions, after no replace-
ment accounting systems were
implemented to replace those
removed b\ former majiorit\

Cash flow woes

confirmed by

City Markets
owner Winn-Dixie when its Tran-
sition Services Agreement was
Mr Sands explained that after
the BSL Holdings consortium
acquired the majority 78 per cent
stake in Bahamas Supermarkets
from Winn-Dixie for $54 million
in summer 2006, the US-based
grocery chain agreed to continue
providing support services for
one year under a Transition Ser-
vices Agreement.
In return, Bahamas Supermar-
kets would pay Winn-Dixie a flat
$1 million fee, plus a 5 per cent
mark-up on all products the US
grocer supplied it with. Deter-
mined to exit that agreement ear-
ly, Bahamas Supermarkets did
so in January 2007, producing
what Mr Sands said was an esti-
mated $400,000 saving.
That, though, may pale against
the extra audit costs incurred.
The Bahamas Supermarkets
chairman said the Board and its
operating partner, Barbados
Shipping & Trading, "moved
swiftly to separate Bahamas
Supermarkets' operations from
dependence on Win-Dixie ser-
"New inventory control sys-
tems were installed, new prod-
ucts sourced to replace Winn-
Dixie's private brands, and addi-
tional management recruited to
provide ongoing operational sup-
port.... Scanning was introduced
in all locations."
Yet Mr Sands said "certain
crucial aspects of such a complex
transition in systems and process-
es were not effectively managed,
due to various factors", although
he did not detail what the
"crucial aspects", "systems
and processes", and "factors"
The result was that "the relia-
bility of the books and records
of the company was compro-
mised", and KPMG had to rely
on manual verification as
Bahamas Supermarkets could
not provide it with computer-gen-
erated data for audit purposes.
Management was further "bur-
dened" by KPMG expanding its
audit procedures because of the
change in systems.
Following the departures of
Ken Burns and Bryan Knowles
as chief executive and chief finan-
cial officer respectively, and their
replacement by Stephen Boyle
and Vangy Rahming, the com-
pany hasrhired outside account-
ing consultants These persons


include Alison Treco from FT
Consulting, plus personnel from
Deloitte & Touche (Bahamas).
Bahamas Supermarkets has
also hired "a well-known super-
market advisor from the US to
assist us in re-engineering and re-
tooling the company".
As a result, Mr Sands said the
year-end 2008 audit would be
"more timely" in publication.
Investors will be eager to see
whether Bahamas Supermarkets
has remained profitable, given
that its BSL Holdings majority
owner is reliant on dividends
upstreamed from the company
to service the $5 million prefer-
ence shares and $24 million Roy-
al Bank of Canada debt it took
on to finance the acquisition.
Many observers in the super-
market and financial communi-
ties believe that BSL Holdings
massively overpaid for Winn-
Dixie's 78 per cent stake, possibly
by as much as $15-$20 million.
In the run-up to the summer
2006 purchase, a number of
sources told Tribune Business
that Bahamas Supermarkets was
valued, at most, at $30-$35 mil-
lion, as the company did not own
any of its stores or head office.
They argued that the company's
thinly-traded shares on the over-
the-counter market were over-
valued, and not a true reflection
of the company's worth.
BSL Holdings' investors
include Barbados Shipping &
Trading, Fidelity's private equity
arm, the hotel industry pension
funds and well-known Bahami-
an wholesaler and businessman,
Franklyn Butler.
Sources close to BSL Holdings
said the $24 million Royal Bank
loan that helped to finance the
company's purchase from Winn-
Dixie was not secured on
Bahamas Supermarkets or the
operating company's assets.
Instead, it was pegged at the BSL
Holdings level, meaning it could
not move to take over the oper-
ating company.
The delay in publishing not just
the 2007 full-year audited finan-
cial statements, but also numbers
for the first three quarters in
2008, is understood to have cre-
ated problems for BSL Holdings
because it put the buyout group
technically in breach of one of
its banking covenants with Royal
This particular covenant
required BSL Holdings to pro-
vide financial reporting updates
to Royal Bank within a certain
time period after each quarter
This it was unable to do
because of the issues at Bahamas
Supermarkets, leading Royal
Bank to work more closely with
ts lerndini counterpart.

Real Estate Association's
(BREA) president, to
numerous leading Bahami-
an realtors, warned "our
entire membership to be on
the lookout for Mr Rudy
King, also known as
Rudolph Kermit King.
"The company he is using
or trading as is called Lord
and Christies, and Loving
Life Foundation Inc. Mem-
bers are advised to use
extreme caution with any
dealings with this person."
Mr Wong told Tribune
Business: "I had gotten a
call from one of my mem-
bers that he [Mr King] was
attempting to lease a
premises under different

Realtors told: 'Use extreme caution'

in dealings with businessman

"I just wanted to give our
members a warning to be
careful and watch the dif-
ferent names this man
Mr King could be reached
for comment before the July
10 Independence celebra-
tions. He is also said to use
the name Tropical Airways.
The colourful Mr King,
who is also known as Dr
Rudolph King or Rudolph
King-Laroda, is no stranger
to controversy.
Chairman of the self-
styled non-profit King

Humanitarian and Global
Organisation, Mr King was
last year indicted by a US
federal grand jury for
allegedly filing a false claim
with the Internal Revenue
Service (IRS) for a $2.7 mil-
lion tax refund.
The alleged offence,
which Mr King has denied,
took place in the northern
judicial district of Califor-
nia, and involved him -
using the name Klever Ros-
ales presenting a tax
refund claim that he
allegedly knew was false.
The US attorney's office

for the northern district of
California alleged: "The
false claim asserted that
Rosales is the president of
Salute Greatness, Inc., a
company located in Beverly
Hills, California.
"On or about July 26,
2007, Mr King, using the
name Klever Rosales, sub-
mitted a fraudulent interna-
tional money order payment
to the IRS in the amount of
$2.7 millioft.
"Mr King, again using the
name Klever Rosales, con-
tacted the Taxpayer Advo-
cate Service (TAS) and
requested an expedited
refund for $2.7 million. He
claimed the payment was
made in error and wanted
the funds returned as soon

as possible. On September
20, 2007, he faxed a fraudu-
lent claim to the TAS in the
amount of $2.7 million,
along with additional docu-
ments which appeared to be
fraudulent, in order to sub-
stantiate his false claim."
Mr King was arrested in
Los Angeles on November
16, 2007, but was able to
post bail and return to the
Fresh legal battles were
not far away, though, as Mr
King and his attorney,
Wayne Munroe, appealed
to the Court of Appeal in
May-June 2008 to set aside
a,2006 verdict by Supreme
Court Justice John Lyons
that declared him bankrupt.
That bankruptcy declara-

tion resulted from a legal
action brought by Cavalier
Construction, which alleged
that Mr King owed them an
$824,938 unpaid debt for
work done on his home.
Mr King had previously
been involved in a separate
2004 Nassau court case, in
which the American
Express credit card compa-
ny alleged he owed it a
$400,000 debt.
And in 2006, controversy
arose over an awards cere-
mony Dr King was staging
in Bermuda, after media in
that country claimed agents
for stars such as Will Smith
and Halle Berry denied
their clients knew about the
event or would be attend-
ing contrary to his claims.

Patronal Festival or feast day as it is

Father Chester Burton, in his wel-

the congregation that it was 25 years

charge of Cat Island. He further saluted
Fr Knowles for the yeoman service he
had rendered, because at that time in
Cat Island there was no electricity, run-

Fr Knowles, in his sermon, admon-

like St Peter and St Paul who were
never afraid and did not compromise

Can't Get Right!

S A movie was made
>> A a few years ago
by the name of "Life",
which stared Eddie
Murphy, Martin Lawrence and a host
of other actors th it were prison
inmates. In this movie was also a
young, deaf and dumb inmate who was
known as "Can't Get Right". This
young man had some amazing talents
as a baseball player; his talents afford-
ed him the opportunity of an early
release from prison to play baseball.
Life! What does it mean to us as a
people who claim to be a Christian
nation, but yet refuses to or just 'Can't
Get Right'?
No, in most cases we choose not to
get it right by blatantly disobeying
God's word. In studying the word of
God I've discovered that there is a
great spiritual parallel between the city
of Corinth and the Bahamas.
Corinth was a wicked, wealthy, com-
mercial centre that was known for its
cosmopolitan culture and luxurious
temples. Likewise, despite all the talks
about the Bahamas being a Christian
nation, nothing could be farther from
the truth. The Bahamas is also a
wicked, wealthy, commercial centre
that is bent on culture; our leaders
(political, religious and civic) spare no
expense in building their luxurious
temples of worship, and palaces to live

We do a good job in displaying our
religious Christianity on Sundays or at
various church events and in front of
the crowd, but at the end of the day we
aren't right.
I'm wondering if we, as a people, are
aware of how we've allowed the law of
deterioration to eat away the very core
values of this country; whereas integri-
ty, justice and respect for each other is
a thing of the past.
There was a time throughout the
length and breadth of the Bahamas that
a man's word was as good as gold;
today, not only are the words of some
leaders worthless, but also their signa-
tures. What's sad about all of this is
that our people seem to enjoy and wel-
come this sort of character defect in our
leadership pool straight across the

1. The politicians that are filled with
empty promises and can tell the best
lies are often the ones that the people
choose to represent them.

2. The religious leaders that are con-
stantly lying in God's name and operat-
ing with their ulterior motives are often
the ones that the people look up too
and seek to emulate.
3. The business man that is known to
be crooked in his dealings and that
may or may not have a close affiliation
with either of the above mentioned -
will always be the community's first
choice to do business with, rather than
an honest businessman who is going to
ask questions.

What does that say about us as a peo-
ple? It literally says that we are a cor-
rupt and wicked people that hide under
the umbrella of Christianity and some
other religions.
The thought and the process of get-
ting things right is a painful one that
would require us to change our wicked
ways and begin to walk in love and
operate in integrity. This can only hap-
pen as a result of a personal encounter
with and submission to the word of
Yahweh and the teachings of His Son,
Yeshuwa Messiah.
Let's look at a corrupt political/reli-
gious leader who had a life changing
encounter with Yeshuwa Messiah.

Luke 19:5 And when Jesus came to
the place, He looked up and saw him,
and said unto him, Zaccheus, make
haste, and come down: for today I must

abide at thy house.
Vs 8: And Zaccheus stood, and said
unto the Lord; Behold, Lord the half of
my goods I give to the poor; and if I
have taken any thing from any man by
false accusation, I restore him fourfold.
One encounter with the Lord can
revolutionize the worst of the worst; it
can also cause a man to humble himself
and do the right thing. With this in
mind, and all the negatives we're expe-
riencing as a nation, it's only fair to ask
the question; How many of our leaders
(especially religious and political) have
truly had an encounter with the Lord?
The answer to that question is rather
simple not many of them.
For if they did, restoration would be
the order of the day throughout the
Bahamas instead of corruption and

HE parish family of St Agnes will celebrate its 'Feast of
Dedication', beginning this Friday, July 11 to Sunday, July 13.
The Feast of Dedication recognizes the rich heritage, and history of min-
istry and witness in the Grant's Town area and all the other surrounding
communities. St Agnes was established in 1841 at the corner of Market and Cockburn
Streets. It later moved to its present location of Blue Hill Road and Cockburn Street,
when it was dedicated on July 12, 1845.
This year the festival will be enriched by the observance and celebration of the life of
Archdeacon William Thompson (pictured) with an established Feast Day of July 11. It
will be called the Feast of William of Grant's Town. This observance begins the cele-
bration for St Agnes this weekend.

On Friday the Feast of William of Grant's Town, there will be sung mass at 6am.

In the evening there will be a presentation on the life of Archdeacon Thompson,
presented by Sir Arlington Butler. The public is invited to attend.

The Festival will conclude on Sunday afternoon with solemn evensong, sermon,
outdoor procession and benediction.
The Guest Preacher will be Canon Richard Barry rector of St Agnes in Miami.

The public is invited to attend all of the events.

We respond to God as an individual
and as a people.
Standing together has to mean more
than standing up for our beautiful
national anthem. It implies that we
understand the importance of respect
for traditions, symbols and sacred
covenants, giving honour where hon-
our is due, conforming to group deci-
sions, and obeying certain rules, while
looking out for the welfare of the many
as well as for ourselves.
It has to mean more than acknowl-
edging the existence of our national
flower, tree, bird, fish and flag.
Standing together speaks to our grati-
tude for the gift of creation (ourselves
included) which includes conserving

and preserving the blessings we have
received in the form of natural
resources, even as we refuse to com-
promise our children's future by selling
body and soul to make a fast buck.
Together we search for solutions for
our problems, find innovative and cre-
ative ways to face and overcome our
challenges, while protecting our chil-
dren from drug use, pre-marital sex,
incest and domestic violence.
As a people this is our time to make
responsible choices about global issues
that affect us all.
We are called to stand together with
other nation states to make decisions
that consider the good of the planet, to
share our goods and services, to
exchange our best ideas, to help each
other in difficulties, and to find a way
to live in peace and harmony as inhab-
itants of this world.
In I Corinthians 12:12 we read that,
the body is a unit, though all its parts
are many, they form one body (NIV).
This image captures the essence of the
Christian faith as it describes the rela-
tionship of our Lord and Saviour Jesus

Christ as the head of the Church and
the many members of the church as
functioning parts of His Body.
It can also speak to our international
connectedness with those of other
countries and cultures, and may be
applied to our archipelagic structure as
a country of many islands, and also
highlights our roles as unique individu-
als wvho form a society.
This image of the body points to
such abstract concepts as;
harmony (the blending of individu-
ality with a celebration of plurality)
peace (the settling of differences in
a manner that is quick, quiet and effi-
love ( progress and prosperity to be
available to all and the offer of emo-
tional, spiritual, financial and other
support to those in need).
Together we stand and divided we
fall is as true for the family as it is for a
nation. Our unity is a vital ingredient
in our survival. Let us face the future

one, along the road that leads to God.


Income to Israel

FROM page 17
is central to the Christian and Jewish
In a country reportedly plagued by
terrorism, daily bombings and constant
events of unrest, the travellers to the
Feast of Pentecost Kingdom Summit
2008, walked peacefully throughout the
streets of Israel untouched by any acts
of violence or hostility.
Paving a way of peace between Jew
and Gentile, Dr Munroe led a team
comprised of some 30 Bahamians,
including pastors and church leaders
from Nassau; Jamaicans, Americans,
Europeans, Canadians, and other
nationalities, on a nine-day journey last
month to experience the virtue of Israel
that is not often expressed by the inter-
national media.
Even near to the time when many
Jews and residents of Israel are headed
into Tisha B'av in July and August,
which is described as a time of mourn-
ing because of the destruction of the
temple of Jerusalem, Mayor Katz was
able to share with Dr Munroe and the
team his hope of the nation being
rebuilt. "I hope to have in my future
peace between Israel and Lebanon,"
Mayor Katz said, "peace for the next
generation of my children, the children
of Metula, and the generation of the
children of Lebanon".
Dr Munroe and summit attendees
visited Metula, the city directly on the
Lebanese border, on their fourth day of
travel around Israel. In his meeting

with Mayor Katz, Dr Munroe
expressed his sentiments about the
region and the ongoing Israeli crisis.
"For the past 23 years we have been
bringing groups to Israel. We brought
up to 850 in one group at a time, but we
haven't been here for about five years.
That is when some of the difficulties
happened here in Israel, and the people
became very afraid to travel," Dr
Munroe said.
"This place (Metula) I think is an
important place for us because this is
the northern most part, and it is also
the part that is the most sensitive.
Standing in a spot where we can see
both sides of Lebanon and Israel in the
middle is the greatest testimony
because in the midst of what you call
enemies, there is safety."
Mayor Katz told Dr Munroe that
positive community growth in Israel
would continue because he felt that his
government could not continue to put
money into tanks and airplanes, but
would instead invest in the well-being
of the Israeli people.
"I am deeply moved and pleased that
you, Dr Munroe, and Dr Roni Wexler
and your international team, have
defied the image painted by the media
throughout the West and come to this
land that belongs to all people of faith
to encourage us as a people. My gov-
ernment is grateful and will always
have open arms to you," he said.
From Tel Aviv to Nazareth, and from
Jerusalem to Metula, the group visited
famous sites such as the Wailing Wall,

the Garden of Gethsemane, a baptism
service in the Jordan River, Masada,
the Dead Sea, Sea of Galilee, the home
town of Apostle Peter, James and John
- Capernaum, and the assumed place of
the empty tomb of Jesus Christ.
Apostle Leon Wallace, senior pastor
of the Voice of Deliverance Disciple
Centre Temple, who was a first-time
visitor to Israel, described his time on
the Sea of Galilee as "a dream come
"It was almost unbelievable. It was a
dream .come true. My entire trip with
Dr Myles Munroe and the Feast of
Pentecost to Israel was very spirit-filled
and enlightening. I certainly enjoyed
myself to the utmost. Every pastor in
the Bahamas should make it a necessi-
ty to visit this land as it makes your
message come alive," he said.
Pastor Arlington Rahming of
Christian Discipleship Ministries called
the trip "life-transforming" and was
thankful to Dr Munroe for making it
possible. "I will never be the same and
look forward to returning next year
with all the leaders I can bring," Pastor
Rahming said.
During the visit, individuals were
able to see former bunkers and hide-
outs of the Hezbollah. In the midst of
the peace and joy described by many
team members, a solemn time experi-
enced was during the visit to the memo-
rial for the soldiers killed by an explo-
sive enemy attack. Team members
were able to touch the shrapnel left by
the explosion and see the photos of the

soldiers who died from the unexpected
assault."The most moving experience I
had was our visit to the Holocaust
Museum where the horror of the death
of six million Jews during the Hitler
years of World War II was brought to
life," said Bahamian minister and musi-
cian Charles Wallace.
On the eighth day of the tour the trip
culminated with a celebration of
Shavuot, the Feast of Pentecost. Team
members visited the fields of Judea to
pick wheat to bring back to the Temple
Mount. They shared in a time of
singing and remembrance in a well-
known tradition of the historic faith.
While some members, including
Bahamians, travelled back home after
the ninth day of the Holy Land experi-
ence, some stayed yet another day in
Jerusalem. Bahamian traveller Nicole
Miller shared said of the uniqueness of
the tour experience of Kingdom
Summit Feast of Pentecost, "I enjoyed
the way they presented it because as we
went along Pastor Myles went back to
the Bible," Ms Miller said. "Also, the
tour guide was very detailed, she gives
you the history. That's what is good
about this trip you get the history and
the Bible teaching also."
Dr Roni Wexler, trip coordinator and
president/CEO of the Ten
Commandments Commission, con-
firmed the international significance of
the Feast of Pentecost trip as a sign of
unity and reconciliation of ethnic dif-
ferences, just as it is a way to declare
that God is one.

in the waiting room of the

word about my brother who The Psalmist writes,

When one of the nurses came out I
was fearful of the news because of what
they might have been told, however it
was discovered that my brother was too
weak to under go the procedure.
He was admitted eventually. But while
sitting there I remembered the last time I
sat in the same place waiting while he was
in theatre. I reflected on the time he had
the first operation; when I asked myself
the question; "where does your help
come from?"
That question was answered by the
Psalmist, so again I looked to the Psalms
for answers, this time it was Psalms 139.
I don't know about you, but when I am
having a difficult day or having a rocky
start to my day or when I'm wondering
where God's presence is in my life, I turn
to the Psalms. When I want to be com-
forted, I open up the Psalms. After all,
this collection of writings reminds us that
we are God's children, and Psalm 139
tells us that we are fearfully and wonder-
fully made.
But on Tuesday I looked at Psalm 139
through a different lens. Rather than lis-
tening for what the Psalm had to say
about us, I search for what it says about
God and how God relates to us. I would
like for us to look at three distinct ways
God relates to us:
God knows us intimately
God created us with a purpose
God never leaves us.
All three are given freely out of love
and generosity, in other words, we did
nothing to encourage them and we can do
nothing to deserve them. God knows us
intimately, God created us with a pur-
pose, and God never leaves us all by
God's own initiative. So let's look at
these in turn.
1. First, God knows us intimately -
knows us better than a parent, a spouse,
and even ourselves. For emphasis, the
word "know" is used seven times in this
Psalm. God knows our words before they
are on our tongues; he knows all our
thoughts and actions. Now; is it-just me or
is that a bit unsettling?
If God knows us that well, that means
