Police veteran dies; at

least two reportedly

rescued from water -


* By BRENT DEAN
Tribune Staff Reporter
bdean,''inbunemedia net
A THIRTEEN-year veteran of
the Royal Bahamas Police Force
drowned yesterday afternoon
when a firearms training exercise
went wrong at Goodman's Bay,
and ambulances took 30 minutes
to arrive at the scene of the acci-
dent.
Corporal 2453 Desmond Bur-
rows, an officer with the criminal
records office, was pronounced
dead at the Princess Margaret
Hospital yesterday, after he and


ercise


several officers in a group of 31
had difficulty completing the exer-
cise. The accident occurred
around 3pm.
Eyewitnesses who described
the training exercise as poorly
structured and ill-advised told
The Tribune that the group was in
the water towards the eastern end
of the beach when the accident
occurred.
The men and women were
weighted down with weapons
belts, military boots and full dress
in the water, in temperatures

Closing arguments

in Darold Miller trial
* By NATARIO McKENZIE
CLOSING arguments were presented yesterday in the sexual harass-
ment trial of popular media personality Darold Miller after he called his final
defence witness to the stand.
Mr Miller is accused of soliciting sexual favours from a female GEMS
105.9FM employee between February 2 and March 22 last year, while he
served as the company's Chief Operating Officer.
Yesterday Mr Miller called social activist and Worker's Party Leader Rod-
ney Moncur as his final defence witness. At the time Mr Moncur took the wit-
ness stand shortly after 11 am yesterday, none of Mr Miller's lawyers was pre-
sent and so he indicated to the court that he was prepared to question Mr
Moncur himself as well as make his closing submissions.
Mr Moncur told the court he had known the defendant from the time Mr'

Haitian-Bahamian in US prison wants
deportation to the Bahamas denied


* By KARIN HERIG
Tribune Staff Reporter
kherig@tribunemedia.net
A HAITIAN-Bahamian
man currently imprisoned in
a United States federal
prison, is pleading with the
Bahamas government to
deny the deportation of all
those with Bahamian citi-
zenship who were convicted
by an American court, but


wish to remain in the US
once they have served their
time.
Carol Joseph, 41, said that
persons who, like himself,
left the Bahamas in their
childhood only to be deport-
ed back to the country as
convicted criminals years lat-
er, are a burden on Bahami-
an society.
Joseph, who was born in
Marsh Harbour, Abaco, to
Haitian parents, is currently
serving a six-year prison sen-
tence for re-entering the US
after he was deported to the

ASA BETHEL, 52, was
charged in Magistrate's Court
yesterday with murdering his
wife less than 24 hours after
she was found stabbed to
death in an apartment off East
Street south.
Mr Bethel was led to Court
1, Bank Lane, by officers of
the Central Detective Unit
shackled at the feet and hand-
cuffed. Upon arrival at the
court of Chief Magistrate
Roger Gomez, three relatives
and friends came over to the
accused and hugged him as he
sat alone in the prisoner's
dock awaiting the magistrate.
The accused is charged with
killing his wife, Bloneva
Bethel, 41, who was stabbed
multiple times about the body,
sometime around 11pm at
their Cox Way residence.
Neighbours reportedly heard
Mrs Williams shouting: "I
rebuke you" and screaming
for help, during a loud argu-
ment. She reportedly died at.
the scene.

Forum boosts

UK-Caribbean

relationship

Chairman of CARICOM and
co-chair of the sixth UK-
Caribbean Forum Baldwin
Spencer told the closing ceremo-
ny of the forum that he felt cer-
tain that what had been discussed
over the past two days would
serve to enhance the already
strong relationship between the
two sides. The two-day meeting.
between the foreign ministers of
the CARICOM and the United
Kingdom's foreign secretary end-
ed at Lancaster House, London
on Wednesday, with both sides
expressing satisfaction of the out-
come. Mr Spencer, who is prime
minister of Antigua and Barbuda,
.aid the meeting conducted in a
veiy cordial and friendly atmos-
phere "even if we have agreed to
disagree on some issues."
"It is that same spirit that has
pervaded our relations and which
we expect to be continued as we
move forward to implement those
matters on which there has been
agreement," he added.
The communique issued after
the meeting set out the areas in
which the partnership between
the two parties would be strength-
ened, including climate change,
youth development, education
and training and security.
The UK agreed to fund capac-
ity building initiatives in the
Caribbean to facilitate a better
understanding by policy-makers
of climate change issues, and con-
firmed its commitment to sup-
porting the development of a
CARICOM strategy on climate
change and an economic impact

Govt officials






face charges


* By NATARIO McKENZIE
TWO former island adminis-
trators, a police officer, an ex-
NEMA official and an employ-
ee in the Office of the Prime
Minister all faced charges in the
Magistrate's Court yesterday.
Neil Sebastian Campbell, 34,
and his wife, Lisa Rolle-Camp-
bell, 35, both of the Bluff, South
Andros, were arraigned before
Magistrate Carolita Bethel at
Court 8 in Bank Lane, charged
with fraud by false pretences.
It is alleged that on October
11, 2005 while at Marsh Har-
bour, Abaco, and being con-
cerned together and with oth-
ers, the couple obtained from
the Ministry of-Finance an
exemption from Customs duties
in the amount of $9,183.02.
According to their attorney
Alfred Gray, Lisa Campbell is a
police officer and her husband
was a family island administra-
tor-for Abaco.
Magistrate Bethel informed
the accused that she was in pos-
session of a fiat from the Attor-
ney General directing the pros-
ecution to proceed with the case
by way of information.
The two were not called upon
to plead to the charge and were
each granted bail in the sum of

An FNM government has yet
again been caught slopingg at
the wheel" failing to enact
laws to protect the reputation
of the financial services industry
in a timely manner, former
attorney general Alfred Sears
claimed yesterday.
He declared that a bill pro-
posed yesterday in the House
of Assembly by government to
bring the Bahamas' laws relat-
ing to anti-terrorism financing
ioto compliance with interna-
tional standards would do no
such thing.
Minister of Education Carl
Bethel introduced the Bill for
An Act to Amend the Anti-
Terrorism Act yesterday morn-
ing, claiming that the govern-
ment was now seeking to recti-
fy the "flawed" Act, passed
under the PLP in light of a crit-
ical evaluation by a regional
body.
Mr Bethel noted that a
November 2007 report by the
Caribbean Financial Action
Taskforce (CFATF) said the
Act was deficient in a number
of ways.
However, Mr Sears pointed
out that even if yesterday's
amendment were passed, the
Act would still not be fully com-
pliant with international stan-
dards in seven out of the eight
"critical" areas flagged up by
the taskforce after their 2006
visit to this country.
He said the situation recalled
the episode when the Bahamas
was put on the Financial Action
Task Force's blacklist in 2000
because its anti-money laun-
dering measures were deemed
insufficient.
The amendment moved yes-
terday was proposed to remove
the requirement in the 2004 Act
that makes reciprocity a pre-
condition for the Bahamas to
give assistance to other states
seeking the freezing of assets
belonging to alleged terrorists
and also to clarify the way in
which a state should go about
requesting a freezing order.
The reciprocity issue was one
of five areas noted by the
CFATF's third Mutual Evalua-
tion report, which said that the
Bahamas was only "partially
compliant" with global anti-
money laundering and terror-
ism financing standards. There
were two other points on which
the Bahamas was found to be


F z n

Pest Contrl~
TppcllExep inaop


"largely" but not fully compli-
ant.
"If the goal of this amend-
ment is to make the Bahamas
compliant with the combating
of terrorist financing, why has
the government failed to
address all of the deficiencies
identified in the Anti-Terror-
ism Act?" asked Mr Sears.
The MP complained that
despite receiving the CFATF's
report in November 2007, the
Government has only just
sought to move on any of its
recommendations alleging
furthermore that he had
"embarrassed" them into doing
so at a point when they had sig-
nalled an intention to take their
summer recess.


Some arraigned on fraud allegations,

while others are accused of stealing


$10,000 with two sureties. Their
case has been adjourned to Sep-
tember 15 for a report in rela-
tion to a Voluntary Bill of
Indictment with which prose-
cutors say they will move for-
ward.
Kirkland Lopez, 55, of Blue
Hill Road, was arraigned before
Magistrate Bethel on a charge
of stealing by reason of employ-
ment. Lopez, a former National
Emergency Management
Agency (NEMA) employee,
has already been charged with
one count of conspiracy to com-
mit fraud and one count of
fraud. He was arraigned on
those charges in May.
It is now also alleged that on
April 11, 2005 while at Cat
Island, Lopez stole $9,500 from
NEMA. Lopez was not called
upon to plead to the charge and,
as in the Campbells' case, Mag-
istrate Bethel indicated that she
was in possession of a fiat from
the Attorney General.
Lopez remains on $25,000
bail and his case has also been
adjourned to September 15.


Former Cat Island adminis-
trator Joseph Ferguson, 52, of
Carmichael Road and Patrick
Evans, 60, of Malcolm Allot-
'ment, were arraigned on
charges of conspiracy to com-
mit fraud and fraud by false pre-
tences. It is alleged that the two
conspired to commit fraud
between November 12, 2004
and December 10, 2004 while
at Cat Island.
It is further alleged that on
December 10, 2004, the men
obtained $6,500 cash from the
Bahamas government by means
of false pretences.
Evans reportedly worked as a
consultant operating out of the
Prime Minister's Office at the
time the alleged offences took
place.
The men were not required
to enter pleas to the charges.
Ferguson remains on $25,000
bail, which he was granted after
he was arraigned on similar
charges back in May. At the
time Evans was granted $10,000
bail. Their case also has been
adjourned to Septemnber 15.

WE ARE pleased that at last a businessman,
who has personally experienced the "frustra-
tions" business people suffer with the Immi-
gration Department, is now in charge.
At last there is someone at the top who
speaks our language and understands our needs.
Mr Branville McCartney has set out to clean up
the department's backlog of permit applica-
tions.
Working from 10am to 8.30pm on Monday
Immigration staff reviewed 400 applications.
Mr McCartney has no idea how many more
remain for his attention. -
Mr McCartney said that the cost of process-
ing a permit application at the department has
been increased from $25 to $100. He justifies
this by the fact that there has been no increase
in Immigration's processing fee for a "long
time." Nor, we can add, has there been in that
"long time" any indication of improved service
to justify such an increase. The service busi-
ness firms receive from that department of
course, there are a few exceptional staff is
not worth the $25 processing fee.
Mr McCartney said he has sought to find out
why it is that some applications have taken
months to come before the board for a decision.
We can give him at least one reason for the
foot dragging. Immigration staff have no appre-
ciation of the needs of business persons, nor
do they understand that in the closing of an
applicant's contract with the company time is of
the essence. Some of them also have personal
prejudices and presume to decide which staff
business persons should or should not promote
in their own businesses businesses for which
the immigration staff are totally ignorant. We
have had personal experience with this, but it is
a story that for the time being we shall keep to
ourselves.
Most immigration staff again there are
exceptions to this statement don't seem to'
understand that a business that has found a
specialist to fill a certain position has to have an
answer from Immigration to conclude a con-
tract.
No applicant is going to wait indefinitely for
the Immigration Board to make up its mind as
to whether the applicant can be employed.
Immigration's lack of response not only puts a
business person in a difficult position, but it
makes him look an indecisive fool.
Another attitude at Immigration that strikes
us as strange is the department's insistence that
the work permit fee starts running from the
day the permit has been granted, not from the
day the applicant starts working with the firm.
When we made inquiries about this several
years ago, we were told not by anyone from


Immigration that the department assumes
that the firm already has the applicant on staff
and the application process is just a formality.
This would be presumptuous for any business
person to do this. But if this is the attitude at
Immigration, then it is encouraging the public
sector to break the law.
The Tribune never employs any foreigner
until the work permit is physically on our desk.
When it arrives at our office the applicant is
informed that he can now give notice to his
employers. The notice usually required is three
months.
By the time the new employee is free to join
our staff at least four months of our permit has
already expired. Immigration expects us to pay
a full year's fee for a permit that is used for
only eight months. We can't blame other busi-
ness persons if they go over the head of Immi-
gration and put people to work while they await
Immigration to drag its feet with the permit.
It was suggested that all the application forms
be sent in to Immigration together, not piece-
meal to avoid the loss of documents. If Mr
McCartney were to check he would probably
discover that the only document missing from
some of the applications is the Labour Depart-
ment form. This is a form for which a firm has to
pay another $25 to be told that there is no
Bahamian to fill the position for which a for-
eigner is needed information that the firm
already knows. Here again is a department for
which time has no meaning. Often The Tribune
has to send Immigration its application with all
its forms, except Labour's.
If Mr McCartney wants his department to
work smoothly, then this is another department
that he will have to take under his wing.
We can assure anyone who might think oth-
erwise that if The Tribune, for example, had
Bahamians to fill positions now being filled by
foreigners we would never go near Immigra-
tion.
As for the department not answering its tele-
phones, we suggest that Mr McCartney check
the telephone book to discover whether the
numbers listed are correct.
Several years ago we were told that they
were wrong numbers, so we set out to get the
private numbers to the desks of several of the
department's officers, thus bypassing the switch-
board.
We have not checked since to discover
whether this has been corrected, but we suggest
that Mr McCartney make inquiries.
We consider the Immigration Department
one of the.greatest frustrations to doing business
in the Bahamas. We wish Mr McCartney success
where others have failed.

EDITOR, The Tribune.
I have watched these last
weeks with growing conster-
nation as straw vendors voice
their opposition to the FNM
administration's plans to
develop the Bay Street site
where the landmark Straw
Market once stood into a
downtown ."green space."
Under the announced plan a
permanent site for a new
Straw Market will be set up.
in another location.
While I wholeheartedly sup-
port a Government mandat-
ed and led initiative to
upgrade, beautify and enhance
Bay Street, I also sympathise
with vendors who have spent
six years under a sweltering
tent, lacking adequate light-
ing and, quite honestly, ade-
quate space for their wares.
They quite correctly are
reminding the government of
the day that in the aftermath
of the Bay Street fire certain
promises were made with
respect to rebuilding.
In light of this history, it is
appropriate for them to feel
on some level betrayed by the
sudden announcement that


the Straw Market will not be
reconstructed on its old site
which has been a long held
assumption for all Bahamians.
However, while vendors
have the right to voice their
grievance it is my belief that
complaints and agitation alone
will not put the Straw Market
back where they want it.
I offer a practical suggestion
to vendors: form a Straw Ven-
dors Cooperative Union and
purchase the site you want for
the Straw Market.
A Cooperative made up of
vendors, their spouses, chil-
dren and grandchildren and
other partners can secure
financing and purchase the old
site on Bay Street and erect a
suitable structure in coopera-
tion with the Government of
the Bahamas.
Vendors will then own, con-
trol, maintain and operate
their own site.
They will no longer be sub-


ject to the changing priorities
and initiates of successive gov-
ernments their destiny will
be in their own hands.
I call upon vendors to con-
sider working hand in hand
with the Hon Larry
Cartwright, Minister of Agri-
culture and Maritime Affairs
and the public officers of the
Bahamas Cooperative Devel-
opment Department to
expand the present Straw
Vendors Association into an
organisation that in short
order might be able to pur-
chase, construct and operate a
new New Providence Straw
Market that will be a credit to
themselves and to all Bahami-
ans.
In this Independence sea-
son, where national pride is at
its peak, I ask is there a better
way for Bahamian Straw Ven-
dors to commemorate our
national sovereignty than by
taking a significant step to
assert their own independence
and self-reliance?
,For what it's worth.

Raising taxes in the Bahamas


EDITOR, The Tribunmie.
Mr. Laing, Minister of State
for Finance deserves credit for
at least trying to rename the
country's Duty and Stamp Tax
regime Excise Tax in order to
comply with EU and WTO
requirements.
Whether it will work or not
is another question, but it's
worth a try. However, as part
of this process, there are
numerous anomalies with the
changes made to the import
rates arising out of the recent
budget presented to Parlia-
ment.
As we know, the govern-
ment was given kudos for such
a great budget as it was going
to go a long way with helping
the so-called small man with
the ever increasing cost of liv-
ing.
However, with the passing
of time, it is evident, after a
cursory review of the new
schedules, that the import


duty rates, now known as
Excise Tax, onthe,pmajority
of items were "rounded up"
by at least 3 per cent.
The curious one for the
auto industry, besides increas-
ing the price of all cars and
parts, is engine or motor oil.
Engine oil previously gar-
nered a combined Duty and
Stamp Tax of 27 per cent, but
under the new Excise Tax
regime it attracts a 45 per cent
rate.
While this represents an
increase of the rate of 18 per
cent, the actual increase is
66.67 per cent.
An astronomical jump in a
commodity that is increasing
in leaps and bounds with the
price of oil.
When questioned about,
this on behalf of the BMDA
Mr. Laing pointed out that in
rationalising the difference
between the rates charged on
engine and transmission oils,
and as he put it "the massive


relief given and the uncertain
economic times" they thought
-it prudent to raise the rate of
.engine oil to that of transmis-
sion fluid. :, g
Funny, when business peo-
ple have to increase prices by
less than 66.67 per cent they
are accused of price gouging.
When government does it,
society is simply supposed to
accept it.
We can't go to another sup-
plier (government) the next
day as we can when we think a
shopkeeper is stiffing us.
It's a pity, that once in gov-
ernment, many politicians do
not see the merits of
decreased government spend-
ing and downsizing the
bureaucracy and national debt
any longer.
Maybe one day?

"UNBEARABLE" working
conditions at the government clin-
ic on Harbour Island prompted
some nurses to walk off the job
yesterday, The Tribune learned.
While the clinic remained open
after the walk-out, the remaining
staff reportedly only saw emer-
gency cases.
The clinic's staff have worked
without a functioning air condi-
tioning system since May and
made a number of complaints to
Ministry of Health officials about
the situation to no avail, a resi-
dent said.
Yesterday's walk-out came
after one of the two nurses on call
"fainted" because of the intense

heat inside the building, a source
close to the clinic told The Tri-
bune.
One nurse who spoke on the
condition of anonymity said: "We
(didn't work yesterday) morning,
we didn't do anything and if'it's
not fixed we will do it again
tomorrow".
Two of the four nurses usually
on c1ll reportedly sat outside the
clinic in protest of the working
conditions.
Harbour Island Chief Council-
lor Daryll Johnson said he was
not aware of the walk-out, but
confirmed the clinic's air condi-
tioning unit was out of order.
"I'm aware that the unit was
down from May or early June and
the conditions are extremely dif-
ficult to work under. It needs to
be fixed I was there yesterday

and the day before and it's not a
proper environment to be work-
ing in."
When he visited the clinic yes-
terday morning around 11 am
"there seemed to be a full com-
plement of staff", he said.
"They were doing what they
can, what is humanly possible and
taking emergency cases only," Mr
Johnson said, adding that it is the
Ministry of Health's responsibili-
ty to maintain equipment at the
clinic.
The Tribune attempted to con-
tact the permanent secretary and
chief medical officer at the Min-
istry of Health for comment, but
the calls were not returned up to
press time.

THE newest Bahamas bound cruise ship, The
Norwegian Sky, will reportedly inject more than
$17 million into the nation's economy this year.
Hyacinth Pratt, permanent secretary in the
Ministry of Tourism and Aviation, said the pro-
jected increase in the number of cruise passengers
to visit the Bahamas 192,000 per year will
provide "a real opportunity" for tour operators,
merchants, taxi drivers, hair braiders and straw
vendors.
The Norwegian Sky has just undergone
"Freestyle 2.0" enhancements, which include
improvements to the overall guest experience in
areas such as dining and the stateroom experi-
ence.
The ship has seven new restaurants and 240
balcony staterooms, more than on any other boat,
as well as a wider range of onboard activities.
There is something for everyone, from gyms,
pools, and golf, to an art gallery, casino, sports bar
and coffee bar, making this ship what Ms Pratt
called "one of the best values in the short cruise
market from South Florida".
Captain Sverre Sovdsnes, himself a Norwe-
gian, told The Tribune that they are "booked sol-
id" over the next year, and that business will be
very good for a long time.
The Norwegian Sky will be giving exposure to
some parts of the Bahamas which are little known
to tourists, such as the Berry Islands. As the
cruise visits Great Stirrup Cay the company's
privately owned island locals will have cus-

least five officers were said to
have been in particular distress,
with at least two being rescued
from under water.
Samuel Johnson, businessman
in the Carmichael Road area, saw
the officers in the water while he
was jogging. "There was some
screaming in the water, but I
thought it was just kids playing,"
he said. As he got closer to the
scene, Mr Johnson said, he saw a


police officer on a motorbike
stop and enter the water.
Mr Johnson added: "I quickly
jogged to the site and they were
retrieving persons from the
water. I later learned that it was a
police training exercise going on
and somehow they encountered
some area that brought some
challenges for some of the offi-
cers and they all were together
in one bunch rendering what
assistance was possible to shore."

ing techniques had to be admin-
istered to several officers on the
beach, he said. A defence force
craft also responded to the scene,
but Mr Johnson said that there
was no oxygen on the boat to
assist in resuscitating the injured
officers.
"I would think that with all of
this summer exercise going on -
and all of the many persons out
at sea it would be a good thing
for the force to look at fitting,
particularly those small craft,
with oxygen because the ambu-
lance took quite a bit of time
before it reached here. And if
there (was) more oxygen avail-
able, better care could have been
given in resuscitating the other
appeared drowned officer."
Witness after witness told The
Tribune that ambulances did not
arrive until between 20 to 30 min-
utes after the incident.
Mr Hanna said that at least
five officers fell into what was
believed to be a sink hole and
one female officer had to be
revived. The other officers
remain at the Princess Margaret
Hospital. It was unclear up to
press time how many officers
were hospitalized. Estimates


range from four to six officers,
and the overall group of 31
included reservists and full-time
officers.
In the wake of the tragedy, Mr
Hanna yesterday expressed con-
dolences to the family of the fall-
en officer on behalf of the RBPF.
"On behalf of the Commis-
sioner of Police Mr Reginald Fer-
guson, and the entire Royal
Bahamas Police Force, we wish
.to extend our condolences to his
family. Our prayers are with
them, and we want to thank them
for allowing their son to serve
this country and this force in the
manner in which he did," he said.
Mr Hanna said that there are
physical components to firearms
training courses intended to
develop the stamina of officers.
Being in the water was a routine
part of the training, he explained.
However, anytime accidents such
as this occur, he continued, it is
necessary to review procedures.
Any decision to alter the pro-
cedures involved in such courses,
said Mr Hanna, would only be
made after the commissioner and
his top team meet to assess the
information surrounding the acci-
dent.


Haitian-Bahamian
in US prison wants
deportation to the
Bahamas denied
FROM page one

Bahamas in 2000 due to a
prior conviction for cocaine
possession.
In a letter to the Ministry
of Foreign Affairs, Joseph
asked the Bahamas govern-
ment to deny his deporta-
tion back to the Bahamas
when he is released from
jail.
"I am one Haitian-
Bahamian who does not
wish to return to the island.
I left the island an innocent
child and am now returning
a drug-dealing criminal," he
said.
"I have no family, no
money, nowhere to live
when I get back to (the
Bahamas). I would only be a
burden to your country. I
just want to stay here (in the
US) with my family," he
said.
Joseph, who since the age
of 16 has been arrested mul-
tiple times and served sev-
eral years in prison in the
US, said that being deported
back to the Bahamas was
"one of the worst things that
has ever happened to me in
my life."
"I was born in the
Bahamas, but left as a child.
When I arrived in the
Bahamas in 2000, I had no
place to live, no money, the
only thing I had was a bag,"
he said.
Joseph explained that a
month after his arrival in the
Bahamas he found a cruise
ship employee who was will-
ing to assist him in his return
to the US.
"He got me on the ship
where I stayed in his cabin
until we got to Florida and I
went back to my family. I
was arrested and sentenced
to six years and four months
for coming back home to my
family.
"I do not know the
Bahamas and would like
you to read this letter, and
:,fsee where I ampi R'Og from
and for you to make the
right decision by letting me
be with my family," he
wrote to the Ministry of For-
eign Affairs.
It has been suggested by
experts that recent crime
troubles in the Caribbean
region could be directly tied
to the activities of deportees
who have learned criminal
behaviour in developed
countries like the US.
Between 1998 and 2004,
the US deported more than
31,000 convicted criminals
to the Caribbean.

$100,000 renovations at Rand


Memorial Hospital pharmacy


* By DENISE MAYCOCK
Tribune Freeport
Reporter .
dmaycock@tribunemedia.net
FREEPORT The Rand
Memorial Hospital pharmacy
has undergone over $100,000
worth of renovations to
improve efficiency, customer
service and working conditions.
Hospital administrator
Sharon Williams and acting
deputy chief pharmacist
Leonard Stirrup took the media
on tour of the newly improved
facility yesterday.
The facility has a new waiting
area, an expanded prescription
drugs section, and a counselling
area for patients.
"We have been working on
improving our facilities over the
last year or so and it is the cul-
mination of the second phase
of a series of improvements for
Grand Bahama Health Ser-
vices," said Ms Williams.
She said renovations at the
pharmacy began in February.
Ms Williams said the
improvements became neces-
sary due to the increase in
patients at the facility.
"One of our challenges was
seating the numerous clients
and serving them on a timely
basis. We have 80-plus clients
at the pharmacy on a daily basis
and now they carn wait in 'a nice
air-co'WMi6hW'd facility, *he
said.
"We also have a counselling
area now so that we can ensure
that patients get the proper
training and education about
their prescription in private."
In addition to renovations,
the pharmacy has also increased
the number of qualified phar-
macists on staff from three to
seven.
Ms Williams said they are
looking to hire two additional
pharmacists for the Eight Mile
Rock and Hawksbill clinics.
Leonard Stirrup said: "The
old pharmacy was very small
and staff had no elbow room.
The working conditions were
very cramped and it was quite a
challenge for us. There was only
one route in and out and bring-
ing in stock was a challenge -
we had to move patients," he
said.
Mr Stirrup said the new facil-
ity has ample space for staff and
gives more comfortable and
efficient service for patients.
In addition to counselling, the
pharmacy is offering a new ser-
vice called total parental nutri-


tion (TPN), which Mr Stirrup
explained, provides intravenous
nutrition to patients.
John Curtis, area vice presi-
dent for the Bahamas Public
Services Union (BPSU), said
the union is pleased with the
improvements.
"The key to any organisation
is the environment and the envi-
ronment the staff was working
in two years ago Was very
cramped and there was no
space for staff and storage for


P: O


supplies.
"I also believe that patients
are pleased with new waiting
area and no longer have to wait
in the hallway and Ms Williams
and her team ought to be con-
gratulated for expanding the
facility," he said.
Mr Williams stated that addi-
tional improvements are on the
drawing board for the hospital.
She said the next phase is sched-
uled for the emergency room
section.

ASSOCIATES OF the Wyndham NassaO Resort who have given 20 years of service to the company were awarded for their contribution to
the resort's team during Baha Mar's third annual Diamond Awards.


BAHA Mar Resorts, in its
commitment to award and
recognize its employees, held
the third annual Diamond
Awards on Wednesday, June
25.
Long-serving employees
were honoured for their ded-
ication to the company and
the hospitality and tourism
industry.
Some 296 employees from


the Wyndham Nassau Resort
and Crystal Palace Casino
and the Sheraton Cable
Beach Resort were honoured
for 20, 25 and 30-plus years
of service. For their commit-
ment to the organisation,
these team members were
awarded with a diamond-
shaped plaque, and a long
service award pin.
During the event, awards


were also given out for the
2007 "Associate of the
Year", "'Supervisor of the
Year", and "Manager of the
Year".
Andrew Sturrup, a shift

sau Resort was named Asso-
ciate of the Year. The Super-

* NEW YORK
OIL prices tumbled Wednesday, putting prices
on track for a dizzying drop of more than $10 in
just two days of frenzied trading, according to
Associated Press.
Light, sweet crude for August delivery was down
$4.27 at $134.47 a barrel shortly before floor trad-
ing closed on the New York Mercantile Exchange,
after earlier sinking as low as $132. Prices fell
$6.44 Tuesday in the biggest one-day drop in dol-
lar terms since the Gulf War.
"This is where the real fighting is. If the bears
-can break support down in low $130s ... that could
be the sign of even further weakness," said Stephen
Schork, an analyst and trader in Villanova, Pa.


The two-day slide marks a dramatic turnaround
in crude prices, which as recently as Friday traded
at record highs above $147 a barrel. But even with
this week's sell-off, prices remain about 80 percent
above where they were a year ago and up about 40
percent from the start of the year.
Perhaps just as significant as the declines was the
sudden increase in volatility. Prices whipsawed
by more than $10 Tuesday and $7 Wednesday
ahead of the expiration of options contracts this
week.
"I think anyone you talk to would have tp be
surprised by the magnitude of these huge price
swings. This is extreme price volatility that no one
can predict," said Jim Ritterbusch, president of
energy consultancy Ritterbusch and Associates.


Resort, as is the Manager of
the Year, Cyprianna Major.
In congratulating the Dia-
mond Awards recipients,
Don Robinson, president of
Baha Mar Resorts, said:
"The most valuable asset
of any organisation is its
human resources, its team,
and I feel privileged to lead
this team of outstanding and
dedicated associates."
Those honoured and guests
were entertained'with
singing, dancing and celebri-
ty impersonations. Yodephy
Dance and Modeling Acade-
my performed two dance
routines. The Falcon Band
serenaded the audience with
R&B music and got atten-
dees dancing to popular
Bahamian favourites. Antho-
ny Edwards, star of the show
'Celebrities on Stage' thrilled
the audience with imperson-
ations of singers from Tina
Turner to Stevie Wonder.

Worker crushed in

Miami recycling plant
MIAMI
A MAN working at a Miami recycling plant is dead after
being run over by a 40,000-pound front-end loader, according to
Associated Press.
The accident happened Wednesday morning at Downtown
Concrete Recycling. A Miami-Dade Fire Rescue says the loader
was moving piles of concrete and dirt when the worker was
crushed to death.
He was killed instantly.
Authorities didn't release his name, but the man's family
showed up at the plant and identified him as 55-year-old Pedro
Garcia.
The Federal Occupational Safety and Health Administra-
..tion and Miami-Dade Pol-7 are investigating.

Ndller ,worked a' ai reporter at The Nassau Guardian. where he began his jour-
naham career. Mr Moncur recalled appeanng on Nir Miller's talk show to dis-
cuss domestic violence against females. Mr Moncur explained that his party
had accused the Progressive Liberal Party of introducing the Domestic Vio-
lence and Sexual Offences Act which he said was "immoral." According to
Mr Moncur, the Bill allows a married woman's sweetheart to evict her hus-
band from their home while the husband still has to pay the bills. Mr Mon-
cur said that there also appeared to be a lesbian agenda behind the intro-
duction of the bill.
As Mr Miller sought to question Mr Moncur further on this issue, Mag-
istrate Renee McKay raised objections to several questions that Mr Miller
attempted to ask. The Magistrate suggested to Mr Miller that he speak with
his attorney Willie Moss who was present at that point.
Mr Moncur went on to testify that after his statements, the show was
ended abruptly by GEMS CEO Cyprianna McWeeney.
During cross-examination Mr Moncur was asked by lead prosecutor
Calvin Seymour on whether he had been his "normal self"' at the time he
appeared on Mr Miller's show. Mr Moncur asked Mr Seymour what he
meant by normal.
"Do you mean if I was drunk?" Mr Moncur asked. "I never drink rum, I
never smoke dope, never in my life," Mr Moncur said. He then asked the pros-
ecutor to apologise for impugning his character. Mr Seymour apologised and
upon further questioning, MrMoncur said that he had not been asked to leave
the GEMS radio station after Milvliller's show was abruptly ended. Mr
Moncur also told the court that he has never in his life seen Mr Miller do any-
thing sexually proper or improper. When asked whether he had ever witnessed
any sexual impropriety between Mr Miller and the virtual complainant, Mr
Moncur questioned who the virtual complainant in the case is.
In his closing statements Mr Seymour told the court that the defence's case
was full of holes and that the Crown had made out its case against Mr Miller.
As Mr Moncur was the last defence witness to take the stand Mr Seymour first
sought to review his evidence. He pointed out that Mrs McWeeney had
gone to Mr Miller's talk show to tell Mr Miller and Mr Moncur that they were
too loud. Mr Seymour pointed out that it was the defence's contention that
Mr Miller had been fired from GEMS for political reasons, however, Mr Sey-
mour questioned Mr Miller's political affiliation. He pointed out that Michael
Pintard, who was hired by GEMS to take over Mr Miller's talk show, once ran
for the Free National Movement against former Prime Minister Perry
Christie. Mr Seymour called the defence's political conspiracy theory non-
sense. He also dismissed the lesbianism conspiracy submitting that all of the
witnesses have denied there being such a conspiracy against Mr Miller. Mr
Seymour told the court that the main issue is sexual harassment and whether
Mr Miller committed the offence. Mr Seymour went on to point to incon-
sistencies in Mr Miller's evidence claiming that all Mr Miller had done was
commit slander. Mr Seymour told the court that Michael Bethel and Judy
Hamilton, who Mr Miller had called as witnesses in his defence, had been
biased towards Mr Miller.
In his closing statements Mr Moss told the court that the evidence of the
virtual complainant was contradictory and noted that Mr Miller had in fact
denied the allegations against him despite the prosecution's assertions. He sub-
mitted that the prosecution had not proved its case beyond a reasonable doubt
and said that in light of this the court should find his client not guilty. The case
was adjourned to July 23 at 2.30 pm.

Growers want FDA


to clear Florida's


whole tomato crop


* ORLANDO, Fla.
FLORIDA TOMATO
growers have asked the U.S.
Food and Drug Administra-
tion to declare there is no sal-
monella in the state's tomato
crops, according to Associated
Press.
The salmonella outbreak
began in Aplril, sickening
more than 1,000 people in the
United States, but the FDA
has yet to prove a tomato link.
The agency has since expand-
ed its investigation to fresh
cilantro, jalapenos and Serra-
no peppers.
The state Tomato Growers
Exchange sent the FDA a let-
ter Wednesday requesting that
all Florida tomatoes be listed
on the FDA's cleared list.
Regulators have approved


tomatoes from 19 Florida
counties, but that excludes a
third of the major growing
areas for the nation's largest
producer of the bedeviled
fruit.
"These counties have now
been out of production for
well over two months," wrote
Reggie Brown, head of the
Florida Tomato Growers
Exchange. "It is virtually
impossible for tomatoes from
those counties to be associated
with illnesses reported in June
or July."
FDA spokeswoman
Stephanie Kwisnek said she
had not seen the letter, but
the agency hasn't ruled out
tomatoes as a suspect.
"The FDA is a regulatory
agency," she wrote in an e-
mail. "As such, its responsi-


ability is to assure the safety
and wholesomeness of the
foods Americans eat."
Growers in Florida, which
produces nearly half the coun-
try's fresh tomato supply, now
face a tough decision over
whether to replant next sea-
son's crops, Brown said.
Even worse, he said, is a
lasting image problem caused
by the fruit's rapid expulsion
from menus and grocery store
shelves.
"The real injury to the
tomato industry is much,
much broader than the pro-
duction income losses here in
Florida," Brown said.
Officials were still trying
to estimate losses for the
$600 million to $700 million
annual Florida industry, he
said.

'A stunning example of heritage tourism'


* By NEIL HARTNELL
Tribun3 Business Editor
A proposal to create
a $29.28 million
National Museum
of the Bahamas at
the former Ministry of Educa-
tion Building on Collins
Avenue/Shirley Street has been
submitted to the Government,
its proponents arguing that the
scheme will create "a stunning
example of heritage tourism"
and act as "an immediate cata-
lyst to the renaissance" of
downtown Nassau.
The project proposal, which
has been submitted by Rhode
Island-based architectural firm,
Newport Collaborative Archi-
tects, a firm well-known in that
US state for its historical preser-
vation work, said the six-acre
property and historic villa
"would collect, interpret and
present the natural, historic and
cultural resources of the
Bahamian people".
Newport Collaborative


* $29m proposal to create National Museum of the Bahamas at former Ministry of Education building in Centreville
Plan projects $357,500 in per annum operating income assuming just 1% of total tourists to Bahamas visit
Go-ahead would provide 'an immediate catalyst to the renaissance' of downtown New Providence


Architects estimated that Cen-
treville National Museum of
the Bahamas would cost $29.28
million to fit-out, upgrade and
construct.
The first phase, which would
focus on preserving and reha-
bilitating the existing building,
was estimated to cost just under
$10 million, with a further $2
million to be spent on restor-
ing the grounds as a public park.
The proposal added: "After
Phase I, there will be significant
opportunities to generate rev-
enues for both the building and
the part. Phase two proposed
to fit-out the building as a muse-
um, complete with exhibits and
programme support facilities,
at an estimated cost of $6 mil-
lion.
"Phase three would include


the addition of a new building at
the rear of the site, with a spe-
cialised repository and conser-
vation laboratories. The cost of
a new building is contingent on
the development of a final pro-
gramme. Presently, it is recom-
mended that $5 million be bud-
geted for this future building."
The project proposal, a copy
of which has been seen by Tri-
bune Business, estimated that
Centreville National Museum
of the Bahamas would gener-
ate $357,500 in annual operating
income, something a source
said was "an extremely conser-
vative" forecast.
Assuming that it would
attract just 1 per cent of the 4.6
million tourists who visit the
Bahamas annually, the Centre-
ville National Museum of the


Bahamas proposal said this
would still translate into 23,000
visitors. With tickets prices at
$8 for adults and $6 for chil-
dren, taking a $7 average price,
this would generate $161,000 in
admissions fees alone.
Other revenue sources are
pegged as $28,000 per annum
from the museum store; $30,000
from. memberships; and funds

Alexiou takes helm

at Colinalmperial


* By NEIL HARTNELL
Tribune Business Editor
MONTY Braithwaite, Coli-
nalmperial Insurance Compa-
ny's president, yesterday con-
firmed to Tribune Business that
is stepping down from his post
as his contract is expiring, and
he had not been fired as some
reports were suggesting.
Mr Braithwaite, a former
Deloitte & Touche (Bahamas)
accountant, and partner, said he
was "going to complete what I
was asked to do" before he
stepped down and took on a
consultancy role to assist Coli-
nalmperial Insurance Compa-
ny with specific projects.
In his stead, Emanuel Alex-
iou, one of the two principals
in Colinalmperial's majority
shareholder, took the post of
executive vice-chairman and
chief executive with effect from
yesterday.
Mr Braithwaite said he had
been brought in to bring "cohe-
sion and stability" to the BISX-
listed insurance conglomerate
following its acquisition of three
rival life and health insurers in
rapid succession.
Subsequent to its purchases


Braithwaite steps
down as president

of Global (Bahamas), Canada
Life and Imperial Life, and their
amalgamation with the then-
Colina Insurance Company,
Colinalmperial was also rocked
by the departure of former pres-
identJimmy.Campbell follow-.
ing a bitter public dispute with-
in its majority shareholder.
Mr Braithwaite dismissed
rumours of a. rift between him-
self and Colinalmperial's major-
ity shareholder, A.F. Holdings,
the former Colina Financial
Group (CFG). Its principals are
Mr Alexiou and Anthony Fer-
guson, who both sit on the
Board of the insurance compa-
ny's parent, BISX-listed Coli-
na Holdings (Bahamas).
"My terms of reference to
stabilise the company would be
complete," Mr Braithwaite said
of his impending departure.
"There's no animosity. I'm
still here. I'm going to complete
what I was asked to do as a con-

The average higher occupan-

That is not bad at all," she

DESPITE the current eco-
nomic climate and fears that the
Bahamian tourism industry
could suffer a severe decline in
the next few months, Kerzner
International and the RIU
Resort are both expecting that
they will generate satisfactory
occupancy levels in the remain-
ing summer months.
Ed Fields, senior vice-presi-
dent of public affairs at Kerzner
International, said yesterday
that while there has been some
impact from the global eco-
nomic downturn, the company
was pleased with the business
levels they were experiencing.
"The Cove is doing very well
this year. We have seen a slight
impact from the economy, but
The Cove is performing very


close to initial projections, which
we attribute to the popularity
and positioning of the product
offered," he said.
Month
Earlier this month, George
Markantonis, Kerzner Interna-
tional (Bahamas) president and
managing director noted that
like many other resorts around
the Bahamas, Atlantis and the
One & Only Ocean Club were
seeing tNe bookingwindows for
reservations shortened, making
it difficult for some to make
occupancy forecasts.
However, he said that this was
not an issue for Kerzner's prop-
erties.
"Bookings have been very
strong over the last couple
months for summer travel. We
anticipate strong occupancy at
out budgeted levels," Mr
Markantonis pointed out.

MSC to expand Nassau shipping


MEDITERRANEAN Shipping
Company (MSC) is looking into
expanding its.Port Everglades-Nassau
route from two to three times a week,
and said it had already begun increas-
ing its Nassau staff in preparation.
The MSC Bahamas sails to Nassau
on Monday's and Thursday's, having


begun its services to Grand Bahama in
2001.
The company added that its pres-
ence in the shipping market means
Nassau retailers and businesses can
connect via its vessels with more than
270 ports worldwide under one Bill
of Lading, saving consumers trans-


shipment costs.
"For Bahamians this means they
have greater buying power with
greater access to cheaper markets,"
said MSC Bahamas general manager,
Manuel Ruiz. He added that "consol-
idating the shipping means less cost
for buyers".


MSC Bahamas began its services
in Freeport, Grand Bahama, with a
staff of only three, offering six service
options through the Freeport Con-
tainer Port, with an annual volume of
less than 700,000 shipments.
Today, MSC Bahamas offers over
14 services through Freeport, with a
'


volume of over 1.4 million twenty-
foot equipment (TEU) moves a year.
Due to the company's continued suc-
cess in Grand Bahama and the
demand of the Nassau companies for
their service, MSC Geneva opted to
expand its route to Nassau in late
2007.


Trade unions wary on



EPA labour 'movement'


* By CARA BRENNEN-
BETHEL
Business Reporter
THE National Congress of
Trade Unions (NCTU) will
likely present its formal posi-
tion on the country's proposed
services offer to the European
Union on the Economic Part-
nership Agreement (EPA)
before the end of the week.
Theresa Mortimer, who sits
on the umbrella organisation's
trade commission, told persons
attending a trade union lun-
cheon meeting on the EPA yes-
terday that the position will also
include specific recommenda-
tions that Bahamian workers
feel will be necessary for the
successful implementation of


the trade agreement.
She said there was some
uneasiness regarding the degree
to which the movement of
labour around countries will be
permitted in the EPA.
Therefore, Ms Mortimer said
the NCTU looks forward to
outlining their recommenda-
tions and working with the Gov-
ernment.
Yesterday's meeting was
hosted by the Ministry of
Finance, and was held to give
an outline of the EPA to labour
unions and employer bodies
such as the Bahamas Confed-
eration of Employers.
The minister of state for
finance, Zhivargo Laing, said
the Cabinet was still reviewing
the final portion of the services


offer before it can be made pub-
lic. He added that there was one
aspect of the document which
required further review and
amending, which should be
completed fairly soon.
Mr Laing reminded the trade
unions that the Government
was not signing a document that
would allow unrestricted move-
ment of labour. Rather, he said
the EPA agreement would out-
line specific, pre-determined
rights of access that will in effect
be very similar to what is cur-
rently allowed.
The minister noted that the
Bahamas stands to gain from
the signing of the agreement,
particularly given the very
strong performance of the Euro
in recent times and the favor-
able regard which many nations
have for the European Union.
He also pointed out that
while the Bahamas may not be
major traders with the EU,
trade currently involving only
lobsters and Polymers, there is
no telling what the future will
hold.
"It is better that we have it
in place and don't need it, than
to not have it in place and
realise that we do need it," Mr
Laing said.

'A stunning example of heritage tourism'


R ROM page 1B


Io m activities such as food services,
WUp tours, facility rental, sponsor-
"!'il '- and Board gifts.
If the project proceeded, it would
,n lk c at least six Bahamian firms and
i;dl iduals in the planning, construc-
t ,; and engineering. These are Ali-
ti ()xlcv as the architect of record;
( ibbcan Civil Group as the civil
' .iLcer; Graphite Engineering as the
in ,haniical, plumbing and fire protec-
lioi engineer; Construction Cost Engi-
...ring (Bahamas) as quantity sur-
-,, )I1 George V. Cox & Co as struc-


tural engineers; and Pyramid Indus-
tries as the electrical engineer.
The Centreville National Museum
of the Bahamas proposal, which has
been submitted to Charles Maynard,
minister of state for culture, and senior
executives at the Antiquities, Monu-
ments and Museums Corporation,
appears to have considerable merit.
The Centreville House site, as the
proposal makes clear, is "the largest
open space in downtown Nassau", and
its size and location make it conve-
nient when dealing with transporta-
tion/parking issues.
It also close enough to attract cruise
ship passengers, being only a short sur-
rey/taxi ride away, and is also relative-


ly near to Paradise Island, giving it a
shot at attracting tourists staying there
who are anxious to experience Bahami-
an history and culture.
The Centreville National Museum
of the Bahamas plan would also enable
the Bahamas to diversify its tourism
product, and allow it to make inroads
into heritage tourism an expanding
market.
The facility would likely also attract
numerous Bahamian and resident vis-
itors eager to gain an insight into this
nation's history and culture, plus
ensure there was no chance that anoth-
er historic downtown property could
fall into disrepair.
Newport Collaborative Architects,


in its proposal, said that the proper-
ty's restoration as the National Muse-
um of the Bahamas would "provide
an immediate catalyst to the renais-
sance of the greater historic district of
old Nassau", "preserve the largest pub-
lic open space remaining in old Nas-
sau", and "create and deliver a stun-
ning example of heritage tourism".
The project plan added that Centre-
ville National Museum of the
Bahamas could also become a "hub"
for localised resource centres through-
out the Family Islands, and "develop
and maintain the best practices of his-
tot ic preservation collections and prop-
erty".
Environmentally-friendly principles


would be adopted for the 40,000 square
foot property's restoration. It current-
ly houses the Antiquities, Monuments
and Museums Corporation offices.
The Centreville National Museum
of the Bahamas proposal resulted from
the close links forged between institu-
tions in the Bahamas and Rhode
Island, and reciprocal visits to both
locations.
The visits resulted in a Memoran-
dum of Understanding being signed
by the Bahamas Chamber of Com-
merce and Bahamas Development
Bank on one side, and their Rhode
Island counterparts on the other,
including the Rhode Island Economic
Development Corporation.

mortgage giant funding


* By MARTIN
CRUTSINGER
AP Economics Writer
WASHINGTON (AP) -
Treasury Secretary Henry Paul-
son said Tuesday the Bush
administration has no immedi-
ate plans to extend emergency
loans to mortgage giants Fan-
nie Mae and Freddie Mac or to
purchase the stock of the two
companies.
Paulson told the Senate
Banking Committee that the
assistance plan put together by
the administration and the Fed-
eral Reserve over the weekend
was intended to serve as a back-
up if needed.
He said that if the govern-
ment extends any-financial


backing to the two institutions it
will be done "under terms and
conditions that protect the US
taxpayer."
Appearance
Before Paulson's appearance,
Senator Jim Bunning, R-Ky.,
told Federal Reserve Chairman
Ben Bernanke that he was very
upset with the rescue package
for Fannie and Freddie that had
been unveiled on Sunday.
"The Treasury secretary is
asking for a blank check to buy
as much Fannie and Freddie
debt as he wants for this
unprecedented intervention in
our free markets," Bunning
said, questioning whether the
government had gotten any


assurances from the two mort-
gage giants that the problems
they are facing will not be
repeated.
Other senators, in their open-
ing remarks, also expressed
questions about what the
administration was proposing.
The administration is hoping
that Congress will quickly pass
legislation needed to put parts
of its rescue proposal into effect.
Paulson in his remarks sought
to assure lawmakers that what
the administration is proposing
will not put taxpayers at undue
risk. He said the plan was nec-
essary to help the nation's bat-
tered housing market get back
on its feet and relieve stresses in
financial markets where
investors are worried about a


rising tide of bad mortgage
loans.
"Our plan is aimed at sup-
porting the stability of financial
markets, not just these two
enterprises," Paulson said,
referring to Fannie and Fred-
die.
"This is consistent with Trea-
sury's mission to promote the
market stability, orderliness and
liquidity necessary to support
our economy."
Essential
Paulson said that it was essen-
tial for the government to put
together a backup assistance
package, given the important
role the two companies play in
supporting the housing market.

Florida approves two




nuclear power plants


* By BRENT KALLESTAD
Associated Press Writer
TALLAHASSEE, Fla. (AP)
- Central Florida's largest
power provider, Progress Ener-
gy, won approval Tuesday from
a state regulatory agency to
build two new nuclear power
plants.
Service
It was the second time in four
months the Public Service Com-
mission has approved nuclear
expansion in Florida.
The PSC approved Progress
Energy's request for new reac-
tors inJLevy County near the


Gulf of Mexico, about 10 miles
north of Crystal River and eight
miles inland from the gulf.
"They're encouraging nuclear
as part of Florida's energy
future which we think is a good
thing," Progress spokesman
Vincent Dolan said. "Nuclear
will provide a stable energy
source for the future."
Progress must still get
approval from environmental
regulators and the federal
Nuclear Regulatory Commis-
sion.
Florida's largest electric util-
ity, Florida Power & Light, was
given the OK in March to go
ahead with plans for two new
nuclear generators at its Turkey


Point facility in South Florida.
Progress serves about 1.7 mil-
lion customers in Florida, most-
ly in the Tampa Bay area, the
Orlando suburbs and the Big
Bend region stretching along
the Gulf of Mexico.
Provide
The new plants will provide
energy for another 1.3 million
average residential homes using
1,200 kilowatt hours monthly
and meet Progress' energy
needs through 2023, the PSC
said.
Progress will begin collecting
roughly $7.50 a month per 1,000
kilowatt hours from its existing


customer base in January 2009
to begin recovering its costs for
building the new units, Dolan
said. "It's a very bad idea," said
Jim Walker, a citizen protest-
ing the PSC's decision Tuesday.
"They're expensive. They're
unreliable. They produce dead-
ly toxic waste and they do pro-
duce greenhouse gas emissions
contrary to what the industry is
saying now."
The company projects that
construction and associated
costs will be about $17 billion
before the new plants go online
in 2016 and 2017 respectively.
They will be the first new'
nuclear generating plants built
in Florida since 1983.

"June's results will be a little
bit better than the first quar-

"We're moving in the right
direction. Everything's on the
right keel."
While some attributed sinister
motives to Mr Braithwaite's
departure, it is understood this
is not the case. All companies,
especially large ones, undergo
management changes and
shake-ups from time to time as
they evolve, and it is understood
there may be some other
changes to come as well as Mr
Braithwaite's.
Several sources suggested to
Tribune Business yesterday that
by assuming operational con-
trol, Mr Alexiou's track record
as a successful businessman
would benefit Colinalmperial,
given that he would likely bring
even more focus and direction
to the company.
But another interpretation
being offered by some was that
Mr Alexiou becoming chief
executive showed that both he
and Mr Ferguson plus the
Board felt Colinalmperial, and
by extension, Colina Holdings

ing better.

of work. He's one of those
dreaded repo men.
He spends his days scanning
megayachts, sailboats and fish-
ing skiffs as he steers his dinghy
through a marina west of the
city's skyscrapers, looking for a
piece of the American dream.
This particular piece is a
gleaming white, 65-foot Hat-
teras with two master bed-
rooms, two full bathrooms and
a full galley kitchen with glossy
teak cabinets. The owner is
$35,000 past due on his $1.5 mil-
lion boat loan.
Hedrick is an agent with
National Liquidators, consid-
ered by industry experts to be
the world's largest marine repo
company. The Fort Lauderdale-
based company has tripled its
business in the past three years,
and now takes possession of


about 200 boats a month in
Florida, Ohio and California.
The company's competitors also
say they've seen similar increas-
es in business.
"They're going to hang on to
the car, they're going to hang
on to the house. But they're
going to give up on the boat,"
said Hedrick, whose employer
has doubled its staff in two
years to 85 repo agents so they
can meet demand from the
banks and lenders.
It's not just boats: Repo
agents say banks and lenders
have been asking them to
reclaim all-terrain vehicles,
motorcycles, small planes, snow-
mobiles, semi-trucks and, of,
course, cars. Vehicle reposses-
sions were up 10 per cent in
2007 over the previous year,
said Tom Webb, an analyst for
Atlanta-based Manheim, the
largest car auction company in
the nation.
One boat dealer, whose com-
pany also does recovery for
banks and lenders, says those
facing boat repossession were
typically involved in the housing
boom either as a real estate


agent, construction worker or
mortgage broker.
"A lot of this is self-inflicted.
It's somebody who three years
ago made $50,000 to $60,000
and didn't save a penny," said
Ray Jones, the owner of Long
Beach Yacht Sales in Califor-
nia. "They thought the income
would never end. But the
income stopped and the toys
went away."
Rising gas prices have also
made it harder for owners to
make room in their budgets for
boat trips. Marine diesel fuel
costs more than $5 a gallon in
some places, which means a
five-hour jaunt on the water can
easily cost $250 for some gas-
guzzling yachts. Last year's
marine diesel cost about $3.40 a
gallon.
"For about a year now, it's
been good for the repo guy,"
says Don Mashak, the owner of
First National Repossession in
Minneapolis.
Overall, the marine industry
is hurting. Bankers say new boat
loans are declining. MarineMax,
the nation's largest boat retailer
based in Clearwater, reported

in April that sales fell 28 per
cent for its second quarter.
Because prices for used boats
are falling, buyers can buy
repossessed boats under 60 feet
for as low as 40 per cent of what
the boat would cost new, said
Robert Toney, National Liq-
uidators' president. Boats larg-
: er than that are less likely to be
repossessed because their
wealthy owners are in a better
position to weather a slowing
economy, Toney said.
Sometimes, owners turn the
boats in to the repo agencies
when they realize they can no
longer pay. But other times,
they hide or vandalize the boats
before they can be seized, said
Megan McQuaide, the owner
of Repo Yacht Sales in San
Diego. She's boarded boats with
oil splashed around the cabin,
engines intentionally overheat-
ed and feces on the deck.
"Sometimes it's really mali-
cious stuff," she said.
On a recent June afternoon,
Hedrick finds no such surprises
aboard the 65-foot Hatteras. He
and his assistant board the yacht
to take photos and catalog any
personal items. There aren't
many aboard, and the boat is
unusually clean, save for a six-
pack of Diet Coke and a chil-
dren's video in one of the
VCRs.
Occasionally, he finds the
remnants of parties: bikinis,
champagne bottles and even
drugs. He calls police if he
comes across anything illegal.
Most of all, he tries to avoid
confrontations. He carries a
sharp knife on his belt to swift-
ly cut dock lines and a company
credit card in his wallet in case
he needs to pay past-due dock
fees. If the owner shows up,
Hedrick will politely leave and
let lawyers, lenders and the boat
owner sort it out.
"I'm not 'Dog the Bounty
Hunter,"' says Hedrick. "'We
,get paid not to have trouble'
But does it bother me some-

investing part in stocks and
stashing the rest into a savings
account.
But as the current credit and
mortgage crises demonstrate,
not everyone is as financially
prudent as this 14-year-old from
Tuscaloosa many people are
in over their heads with debt
and have too little in the way
of savings. A major part of the
financial distress of many
Americans, experts say, is that
they never had good lessons on
saving and spending when the-
FXere growing up.
There are signs that the cur-
rent generation of young people
may have a better education.
Although a personal finance
class was a requirement for high
school graduation in only seven
states last year, according to the
National Council of Economic
Education, alternatives such as
camps, interactive Web sites


and investment programmes
targeting children are emerging
to help fill the gaps.
Still, classes and other activi-
ties can only do so much. For
good financial practices to real-
ly take hold, parents should lead
by example and include their
children in household money
matters early on, according to
those active in finance and
financial education pro-
grammes.
"Kids need to get involved
with money and they need to
handle it," said Bob Nusbaum, a
financial planner in Pittsburgh,
who said exposure can start as
early as age 4 or 5. "Parents
need to involve their kids in
financial decisions as soon as
they are old enough to grasp
it."
Jan Brakefield, an assistant
professor at the University of
Alabama, ran Camp Cash at the

school for the first time this
summer and hopes it will
become an annual program.
Nicholas Sella, who owns stock
in Deere & Co., Altria Corp.
and McDonald's Corp., was one
of 18 middle schoolers who
attended the two-week money
management camp.
"I just believe that at this age
it's more likely to stick with
them for life," Brakefield said.
Once kids hit high school, she
said, they are more interested in
spending money on dating and
trendy clothes and gadgets. She
said good financial instincts -
saving, delayed gratification,
investing need to be instilled
before that point.
Brakefield tried to incorpo-
rate as many tangible examples
as possible to keep her students'
interest. On the first day of
camp, she gave each student $5
and took them to a store to buy
something to write with while
at camp. She said they could
spend as much of the money as
they wanted and pocket the
rest. Students then had to
explain their choices, and the
group discussed the different
strategies.
Through in-school and after-
school classes, special events,
camps, rallies and conferences,
a Florida-based company called
YoungBiz teaches teenagers
about business, entrepreneur-
ship and personal finance.
"It's all about empowerment,
whether it's entrepreneurship
or financial literacy," said Bon-
nie Drew, the company's senior
executive vice president. "When
you believe that you are smart
enough and capable of making
decisions about your employ-
ment and your finances, you will
make better decisions."
The Web site of the company,
based in Siesta Key, Fla., cele-
brates teen-run businesses to
encourage other teens to start
their own businesses and give
them pointers on how to pro-
ceed.
Monetta Financial Services'
Young Investor Fund is a mutu-










INSIGHT.


al fund designed to help kids
save money for college or other
big purchases and to teach them
financial literacy. About half
the fund's assets are in funds
that seek'to track the S&P 500
Index and return a good profit,
while the other half is invested
in large companies kids know
- like McDonald's, Walt Dis-
ney Co., Apple Inc. and Coca-
Cola Co.
Bob Bacarella, president and
portfolio manager for the
Wheaton, Ill.-based company,
said the fund gives young peo-
ple a feeling of ownership over
companies they are familiar
with, which keeps them inter-
ested.
Monetta sends its young
investors age-appropriate mate-
rials and has a Web site with
educational games.
"I seriously believe that the
only way kids learn about finan-
cial literacy, which is a pretty
dry topic, is to get them direct-
ly and actively involved,"
Bacarella said.
That is the key to all these
approaches they use fun
methods to teach useful skills.
Unlike consumer science class-
es of the past, where teachers
lectured on mortgage payments
and balancing a checkbook to
bored students who didn't see
immediate applications in their
own lives, kids can get excited
about following the stock prices
of their favorite companies or
touching and spending small
amounts of money to learn
about purchasing decisions.
While all these tools are use-
ful to get kids thinking about
money management, parental
responsibility plays a huge role
because young people tend to
mimic their parents' financial
behavior, said Paul Golden,
spokesman for the National
Endowment for Financial Edu-
cation.
NEFE, based in Greenwood
Village, Colo., has a seven-unit
curriculum geared toward high
school students that is free to
schools. But Golden said many
schools don't teach personal
finance because they don't have
time or because teachers them-
selves aren't sure how to broach
the subject.
"It's really a hard topic to
break," Golden said. "It's not
the sexiest topic, and people
don't tend to talk about money
because there is a taboo about
it."
He said parents need to get
past that taboo and include kids
in financial decisions and show
them how money flows through
the household but they also
need to be strong financial role
models so their kids don't pick
up bad habits.

THE TRIBUNE


THURSDAY, JULY 17, 2008, PAGE 17B


* By NEIL HARTNELL
Tribune Business Editor

THE Bahamas Bar Associa-
tion's president yesterday con-
firmed to Tribune Business that
the closing of some real estate
transactions had been delayed
by the parties involved wanting
to take advantage of the 2008-
2009 Budget's tax exemptions.
Wayne Munroe, an attorney
and partner in Lockhart &
Munroe, said it was "not unrea-
sonable" for persons involved
in real estate deals to want to
delay completion of their trans-
actions to exploit the new tax
regime, given that, for example,
they could save a collective
$50,000 in Stamp Duty on the
sale of a $500,000 property.
"It's happened in transactions
I'm involved in, where I've had
clients come to me and say they
do not want to close yet, espe-
cially if they could get the ben-
efits of the new regime. They


say that if we proceed to close, I
will have to pay all the Stamp
Duty," Mr Munroe joked.
"Persons on the other side of
transactions have told me that,
in one case, a person preferred
to lose their deposit rather than
close in the time permitted."
Mr Munroe said it was "not
unusual" for persons to delay
closing real estate transactions if
they could exploit the new tax
exemptions and save potential-
ly thousands of dollars.
"People want to get the ben-
efits of saving thousands of dol-
lars, and not to have to pay tax-
es unnecessarily," the Bar Asso-
ciation president said.
"Clients may wish to take
advantage of these changes, so
people may not want to have
these transactions close until
they're going to get the bene-
fits of these proposals.
"I can understand people
wanting matters to close at a
time when they don't have to


pay thousands of dollars in tax-
es."
William Wong, the Bahamas
Real Estate Association's
(BREA) president, previously
told Tribune Business that many
of his members had told him the
closing of real estate transac-
tions had been delayed by the
wait for the 2008-2009 Budget
tax breaks to become law
through their Gazzetting some-
thing that is now understood to
have happened.
All first-time home buyers,
according to the Budget, are to
now be exempt from paying
Stamp Tax on properties worth
up to $500,000 for a five-year
period, provided the property
is used as a primary residence.
The threshold at which first-
time buyers will be exempt from
paying real property tax for the
first five years was increased
from $250,000 to $500,000, again
provided the property is the
main place of residence.

US economy facing 'numerous


* By JEANNINE AVERSA
AP Economics Writer
WASHINGTON (AP) -
Federal Reserve Chairman Ben
Bernanke told Congress the
fragile United States economy is
facing "numerous difficulties"


despite the Fed's aggressive
interest rate reductions and oth-
er fortifying steps.
At the same time, Bernanke,
testifying before the Senate
Banking Committee, sounded
another warning that rising
prices for energy and food are


elevating inflation risks. This
problem looms even as officials
try to cope with persistent
strains in financial markets, ris-
ing joblessness and housing
problems.
The situation, he said, poses
"significant challenges" for Fed


BRITISH AMERICAN'S




Annual 'Night School


policymakers as they try to
chart the best course for keep-
ing the economy growing, while
making sure inflation doesn't
dangerously flare up. All the
economy's problems includ-
ing slumping home values,
which threaten to make people
feel less wealthy and less
inclined to spend in the months
ahead represent "significant
downside risks" to economic
growth.
Over the rest of this year, the
economy will grow "apprecia-
bly below its trend rate" mostly
because of continued weakness
in housing markets, high energy
prices and tight credit condi-
tions.
On Wall Street, stocks
slumped. The Dow Jones indus-
trials were down around 50
points, after suffering steeper
losses earlier in the morning.
Bernanke's testimony comes
just two days after the Fed and
the Treasury Department came
to the rescue of mortgage giants
Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac,
offering to throw them a finan-
cial lifeline.
The Fed chief was later
joined by Treasury Secretary
Henry Paulson and Securities
and Exchange Commission
Chairman Chris Cox, who were
summoned to detail the rescue
plan.
The two companies hold or
guarantee more than $5 trillion
in mortgages almost half of
the nation's total. The Bush
administration is asking Con-
gress to temporarily increase
lines of credit to Fannie and
Freddie and to let the govern-
ment buy their stock. The Fed
has offered to let the compa-
nies draw emergency loans.
The pledges of aid have
raised concerns about the gov-
ernment's role in such financial
problems and the risk to tax-
payers.
Senator Christopher J Dodd,
D-Conn., the Banking Com-
mittee chairman, called the plan
"unprecedented."
Dodd said the rescue raises
serious questions "about the
nature of the economic crisis
facing our nation, about the
ability of these proposals to
address this crisis effectively,
and about the burden that the
American taxpayer potentially
is being asked to carry." .'
Paulson said that if the gov-
ernment extends any financial
backing to the two institutions it
will be done "under terms and
conditions that protect the US
taxpayer." He didn't provide
details. "This is a backup facili-
ty that hopefully it will never
be used," Paulson said. The
Treasury chief said he hoped
that the pledge itself would help
to boost eroding investor confi-
dence in the companies.
Senator Richard C Shelby of
Alabama, the panel's senior
Republican, cautioned, "I fear
that we're sitting on a financial

Volkswagon

picks

\ Tennessee

) for new US

auto plant

FRANKFURT, Germany
VOLKSWAGEN AG
has picked Chattanooga,
Tenn., over sites in two
other states for its new
U.S. auto plant, Europe's
biggest automaker said
Tuesday, according to the
Associated Press.
Sites in Alabama and
Michigan were also con-
I sidered for the plant,
which is part of Volkswa-
gen's strategy to increase
its presence in America.
The company closed its
last U.S. production facili-
ty in 1988 in western Penn-
sylvania.
Christian Wulff, the gov-
ernor of Lower Saxony
and a member of VW's
supervisory board, told
The Associated Press that
Volkswagen picked Chat-
tanooga after the board
debated the merits of the
location and its benefits.
Volkswagen said in a lat-
er statement that it
approved up to $991.4 mil-
lion to build the facility,
with the plant aiming for a
capacity of 150,000 cars a
year. It plans to employ
2,000 workers when it
starts production in 2011.
"The USA market is an
important part of our vol-
ume strategy and we are
; now very resolutely access-
ing that market," chief
executive Martin Win-
terkorn said in the state-
ment. "Volkswagen will be
extremely active there."
The company holds only
a 2 percent share of the
U.S. market. VW officials
have said the company
intend e eth"'tr.p :
its T#.sales to 1 million "'
by 2018.
The German state of
Lower Saxony owns more
than 20 percent of Volk-
swagen.
Wulff said the new plant
in the U.S., in addition to
: its factories in India and
*' Russia, is part of the com-
pany's strategy to become
the world's No. 2
automaker.
The automaker has said
the surging euro has
pushed along plans for a
new production facility.
The 15-nation currency hit
a record high of $1.6038
on Tuesday, making goods
exported from Germany
more expensive in the
United States.
Shares of Volkswagen,
whose brands include VW,
Audi, Skoda, Bentley,
Bugatti and Seat, were
steady at 169.78 euros
41 ($271.48) after the deci-
sion.

* AWASH MELKASA,
Ethiopia
HUSSEIN IBRAHIM
walked solemnly past tidy
rows of bright green cabbages,
vines bursting with tomatoes
and trees weighed down with
plump avocados, according to
the Associated Press.
This modern, thriving farm
- a rarity in drought-ravaged
Ethiopia filled Hussein
with envy. Like so. many other
farmers across the Horn of
Africa, he has no hope for his
own crops this year.,
"We are behind all the oth-
er people in the world," said
Hussein, who tends his land in
southern Ethiopia the way his
ancestors did hundreds of
years ago with rain, if it
comes; and oxen, as long as
they're healthy.
BREAKING THE CYCLE
To break out of endless
cycles of drought, poverty and
hunger, experts say, Africa
desperately needs to modern-
ize its age-old farming tech-
niques. But the vast sums in
foreign aid to Africa go toward
feeding the hungry, and very
little is left for improving farm-
ing so that Africans will cease
to depend on handouts.
It isn't impossible. A decade
ago, a "green revolution"
helped millions of farmers in
Asia and Latin America
emerge from poverty with
basic innovations such as fertil-
izer, improved irrigation and
hybrid seeds.
But Africa's farms, which
employ more than half the
labor force, remain one-fourth
as productive as their counter-
parts around the world.
Ethiopia drew international
ff8tteioien ini'fi984 'wa'b ---'
famine compounded by com-
munist policies killed 1 million
people. It is now gripped by
drought that has left 4.6 million
.people in need of emergency
food shipments.
Drought is especially bad for
Ethiopia because farming
employs more than 80 percent
of Ethiopians and accounts for
half of all domestic production
and 85 percent of exports.
Yet it's not that Ethiopia is
incapable of growing food, as
this experimental farm 100
miles southwest of Addis Aba-
ba demonstrates. It. just needs
the right tools.
The farm, part of a govern-
ment-run research center, beats
the drought with smart irriga-
tion systems, higher-yielding
seeds, and fertilizer and pesti-
cides correctly applied.
Hussein and dozens of other
farmers were invited to the
farm in late June to learn about
modern agricultural tech-
niques.
The 640-acre center employs
nearly 350 workers, nearly 60
of whom hold advanced

degrees in agriculture. It was
set up in 1969 in the dying days
of Ethiopia's monarchy, sur-
vived a decade of Marxist dicta-
torship, famine and wars, and
continues to point the way to
food independence.
But all it can do is point. It
costs the Ethiopian govern-
ment about $1.1 million a year
to run the farm. The average
Ethiopian works two acres, has
little education and earns about
$800 a year.
Also on the visit to the center
was Mitike Abebe, who farms
wheat, barley, lentils and other
crops in southern Ethiopia. She
depends entirely on rainfall,
sturdy oxen, and her over-
worked soil.
"We don't want food aid,"
she said. "We need tractors, we
need seeds, we need farm
machinery."
There's aid aplenty -
Ethiopia alone got $1.95 billion

than 5 percent of it goes
toward the sort of things
Mitike needs.

Monday, July 7, 2008. With no other job prospects in this impoverished, remote northern village, roughly half the men of fighting age have enlisted in the army, navy, police or other security branches. After
a quarter century of civil war between government forces and ethnic Tamil rebels, fighting is so entrenched in this Indian Ocean island it has become a career for tens of thousands seeking a path out of the

War is only job available

in Sri Lankan village


* IYATHIGEWEWA, Sri Lanka
IYATHIGEWEWA is a
classic company town. But the
youth don't head off to work
in the local mine or factory -
they go to war, according to
the Associated Press.
With no other job prospects
in this impoverished, remote
northern village about 27
miles south of the front lines,
roughly half the men of fight-
ing age have enlisted in the
army, navy, police or other
security branches.
"When we want to find a
job, the easiest thing is to join
the security forces," said Sisira
Senaratna, 38, a 16-year police
veteran who has two brothers
who enlisted in the army and
another in the police force.
After a quarter century of
civil war between government
forces and ethnic Tamil rebels,
fighting is so entrenched in
this Indian Ocean island it has
become a career for tens of
thousands seeking a path out
of rural Sri Lanka's brutal
poverty.
TAMIL TIGER REBELS
For their part, the Tamil
Tiger rebels have been
accused of filling their ranks
by forcibly recruiting at least
one member of each family in
their de facto state in the
north.
With the military promising
to crush the rebels in the com-
ing months, its appetite for
more recruits is huge. Two
weeks ago, the defense min-
istry sent a nationwide text
message calling on "Young
Patriots come join with our
armed forces (army navy or
air force) and be a part of a
winning team."
Kadirage Leelawathi's
entire family had already
answered the call.
Her husband joined the
army 20 years ago after failing
to scrape a living from his tiny
farm. The family lived in a
clay hut with a floor made of
cow dung and used kerosene
lamps for light, she said. They
could only afford to eat meat
once a week.
"We couldn't make ends
meet with three children," she
said. "With the little money he
earned from farming, we had a
hard time even sending the


kids to school."
With his army salary, they
built a two bedroom concrete
house with electricity, running
water, a telephone, a 21-inch
color TV and a 20-foot anten-
na piercing the sky.
Her oldest son dreamed of
becoming a Buddhist monk,
but grew disillusioned with the
clergy and joined the navy five
years ago. Her next son, see-
ing his father and brother
serving, enlisted in the army
two years ago. Seven months
ago, her youngest son joined
the paramilitary home guard,
which protects villages in the
north from rebel infiltration.
With the fighting escalating,
Leelawathi said she is worried
about her family: "But there's
no option. What can we do?"
"If there were any other job
opportunities, they wouldn't
go," said her sister-in-law,
Kiriyage Kamalawatee.
The economic situation was
not always so bad.
THE FARMLAND
In 1952, lyathigewewa's 430
acres of farmland were enough
for its 30 to 40 families. But
many parents had 10 or more
children, and the population
explosion soon overwhelmed
the village.
Parents divided their modest
farms among their offspring,
who subdivided them among
their own children. Many of the
375 families living here now are
left with slivers of land far too
small to support a family.
Without the option of push-
ing plowshares, the youth of
lyathigewewa picked up
swords.
The village's first recruit
joined the army in the late
1970s. A trickle of youth fol-
lowed, eventually becoming a
flood.
Now, 175 of lyathigewewa's
1,161 residents are in the secu-
rity forces, where many earn a
solid living of $230 to $280 a
month. That money has
brought relative prosperity to
the village.
Its small shacks have been
replaced by modest cement
houses filled with kitchen appli-
ances. Motorcycles and shiny,
red three-wheeled vehicles pur-
chased with army salaries shoot
down the only paved road.

Video of interrogation



of Canadian Gitmo



prisoner released


* TORONTO
LAWYERS for a Canadian
prisoner at Guantanamo Bay
released excerpts of video-
taped interrogations Tuesday,
providing, a first-ever glimpse
into the secretive world of
questioning enemy combatants
at the isolated U.S. prison in
Cuba, according to the Asso-
ciated Press.'
The 10 minutes of video -
selected by Omar Khadr's
Canadian lawyers from' more
than seven hours of footage
recorded by a camera hidden
in a vent shows a 16-year-
old Khadr weeping, his face
buried in his hands, during the
2003 interrogation that took
place over four days.
The video, created by U.S.
government agents and origi-
nally marked as secret, pro-
vides insight into the effects of
prolonged interrogation and
detention on the Guantanamo
prisoner.
A Canadian Security Intelli-
gence Services agent in the
video grills Khadr about events
leading up to his capture as an

enemy combatant when he was
15. Khadr, a Canadian citizen,
is accused of throwing a
grenade that killed a U.S. sol-
dier during a 2002 firefight in
Afghanistan. He was arrested
after he was found in the rub-
ble of a bombed-out com-
pound badly wounded and
near death.
At one point in the interro-
gation, Khadr pulls off his
orange prisoner shirt and
shows the wounds he sustained
in the firefight. He complains
he can't move his arms and
says he had requested, but
hadn't received, proper med-
ical attention.
"They look like they're heal-
ing well to me," the agent says
of the injuries.
"No, I'm not. You're not
here (at Guantanamo),"
Khadr says.
The agent later accuses
Khadr of using his injuries and
emotional state to avoid the
interrogation.
"No, you don't care about
me," Khadr says.
Khadr also tells his inter-
rogator that he was tortured

while at the U.S. military
detention center at the Bagram
air base in Afghanistan, where
he was first detained after his
arrest in 2002.
Later on in the tape, a dis-
traught Khadr is seen rocking,
his face in his hands.
"Help me," he sobs repeat-
edly in despair.
On the final day, the agent
tells Khadr that he was "very
disappointed" in how Khadr
had behaved, and tries to
impress upon him that he
should cooperate.
Khadr says he wants to go
back to Canada.
"There's not anything I car
do about that," the agent says.
The video is believed to be
the first footage shown of the
Canadian Security Intelligence
Service in action during its 24-
year history, offering an
unprecedented glimpse into its
interrogation strategies. The
video was made by U.S.
authorities and turned over to
Khadr's defense team, accord-
ing to a Pentagon spokesman,
Navy Cmdr. J.D. Gordon. The
tapes are U.S. property.

along Sydney Harbor Tuesday,
waving flags of their home coun-
tries and singing as they awaited
a Mass opening the World Youth
Day festival, according to the
A associated Press..
Pope Benedict XVI arrived
Sunday, and was resting at a
secluded retreat on the outskirts
of Sydney until Thursday, when
he starts a busy round of meet-
ings, takes a cruise on Sydney
Harbor and addresses the pil-.
grims. The festival culminates
with a papal Mass on Sunday.
Aboriginal Australians in tra-
ditional clothing and white body
paint danced and chanted to the
unique strains of a didgeridoo in
a welcoming ceremony at
Barangaroo, along the harbor.


"Some say there is no place
for faith in the 21st century. I say
they are wrong," Prime Minis-
ter Kevin Rudd said, to cheers
from the pilgrims, most dressed
in World Youth Day's bright yel-
low and red colors.
"You are welcome guests in
our land. May each of you be
enriched by your time here
among us in Australia, just as
you enrich Australia by your
time here with us," he said.
Rudd welcomed the legions in
various languages, including
Korean, Tagalog and Bahasa
Indonesian.
Cardinal George Pell, the
archbishop of Sydney, urged the
pilgrims to keep and spread the
faith through self-discipline and


prayer in a homily before thou-
sands. He also referred to the
distance they had traveled.
"Many of you have traveled
such a long way that you may
believe that you have arrived,
indeed at the ends of the Earth,"
Pell said, the sun setting behind
him. "If so, that's good, for our
Lord told his first Apostles that
they would be his witnesses in
Jerusalem and to the ends of the
Earth."
Nearly 250,000 people have
registered for World Youth Day,
more than half of them from
overseas. Thousands of young
people were staying in churches
and school houses or in volun-
teers' homes, and were visible
throughout the city, hoisting their

Every evening during the
event, a light show of 20 images
of the pope and the Australian

Bridge in celebration of World

at 10:45 a.m. EDT. As of about 11 p.m. EDT Wednesday, the
center of the storm was about 590 miles southeast of Bermuda.


* HAMILTON, Bermuda
White-capped storm surf
thundered against beaches and
high winds knocked out power
to thousands of Bermudians on
Monday as Tropical Storm
Bertha swept over the Atlantic
tourist island before heading
back out over open ocean,
according to the Associated
Press.
Bermuda's weather service
canceled a hurricane watch for
the island late Monday as
Bertha's center moved away
from the British territory. It
said a tropical storm watch
remained in effect, however.
The storm also whipped up
dangerous rip currents along
the U.S. East Coast from the
Carolinas through southern
New England, contributing to
at least one drowning Saturday
along a New Jersey beach,. offi-
cials said.
The streets of Bermuda's
capital, Hamilton, were empty
and all ferries and flights were
canceled. Bertha's heavy rains
flooded roads and its winds
felled utility poles, leaving up
to 4,000) without electricity.
There were no reports of
injuries.
Ron Smith, a carpenter who


moved to Bermuda about a
year ago from the English city
of Stoke-on-Trent, described
the broad storm's passage as
"harrowing."
"You could see the waves
just crashing down and the
winds were ferocious, still are,"
said Smith, one of dozens who
rode out the storm in The Pick-
led Onion pub and restaurant
in Hamilton.
Retiree Barbara Richardson
hunkered down in her home in
the southern parish of War-
wick, where electricity was
knocked out for about an hour.
"The wind was howling pret-
ty bad there for a while, but
now it's calming down,"
Richardson said. "We've seen
worse here."
Early Tuesday, Bertha was
centered about 140 miles (225
kilometers) north-northeast of
Bermuda with sustained winds
near 70 mph (110 kph), the
U.S. National Hurricane Cen-
ter said. The storm was swirling
north at 9 mph (15 kph).
Bertha became the Atlantic
season's first hurricane on July
7, but later weakened into a
tropical storm. It is expected
to re-strengthen into a hurri-
cane on Tuesday, the center
said.

White mates in two moves,
against any black defence. Today's ,
problem isn't really that difficult,
but it caused havoc in the 1998 s
solving world championship at St 4
Petersburg. Finland's seven-time 2
world champion Paul) Perkonoja was 1
beaten by a two-mover for the first
time ever in a solving contest, while
Britain's number one, grandmaster
Jonathan Mestel, also failed. When
the answer was revealed, there was
shocked controversy and claims of
unfairness. Can you crack the puzzle

The bidding:
North East South West
14 2 9 3 + Pass

Opening lead nine of hearts.
Assume you get to six clubs on
the bidding shown and West leads a
heart. Common sense tells you the
slam is in danger because East over-
called with two hearts and there is a
very good chance the bid was based
on a six-card suit.
If so, West's lead is a singleton,
raising the possibility he may be able
to ruffla heart if you lead a trump at
trick two.
So you naturally start wondering
what can be done about this threat.
After you stew a while as all care-
lul declarers do you come up with
what looks like a promising solution.


You win the heart with the king,
cash the ace of spades and lead a dia-
mond to the king. Your plan is to dis-
card the 7-4 of hearts on the K-Q of
spades and then lead a trump.
You do get to discard a heart on
the spade king, but when you next
lead the queen, it turns out that East
has no more spades. However, this
does you no harm at all, since East
has the singleton ace of clubs. What-
ever East does whether hlie rulTs
with the ace or discards on the spade
queen you dispose of your last
heart. Either way, you make the
slam.
While East's holding the single-
ton club ace may appear to be a
stroke of good luck, the fact is that
this method of play would succeed
even if East had the A-x or A-x-x of
clubs. In either case, after East ruffed
low, you would overruff and simply
concede a club to the ace to make the
slam. You'd lose a trump trick but
nothing else.
Observe what would have
occurred, however, had you incor-
rectly led a trump at trick two. Down
the chute you'd go!
It's no doubt true that many
declarers would tackle trumps imme-
diately, hoping East had overcalled
on only a live-card suit or that West
was dealt only one trump. Those who
did would have to pay a heavy price
on the actual deal for having failed to
take the maximum precautionary
measures.

WITH just a few weeks
left before the reigning
Miss Gospel Bahamas
Anya McKenzie hands over her
crown to a new queen the 13th
Annual Miss Gospel Bahamas
Pageant is scheduled to be held
at the Rainforest Theatre of the
Wyndham Nassau Resort, August
10 at 7pm pre-pageant activi-
ties, including the preliminary
rounds, are already in full swing.


Perhaps one of
the more exiting
pageant activities,
and coming up next
for the young ladies.
is a float parade
through the streets
of Nassau that will
feature each contest-
ant depicting a bibli-
cal character of their
choice. The parade.
scheduled for
Saturday, July 19,
leaves the Great CONTESTANT Sharlene
Commission Thurston passionately
Ministries head presents her points during
office at 3:30pm the speech competition.
(Great Commission
Ministries founded the pageant).
In the run up to the pageant, and as part of
their mission to serve the community, contest-


ants in the Miss Gospel Bahamas pageant visited
the Elizabeth Estates Children Home and
served lunch to residents there. The contestants
also taught at the "Save the Children Club". an
outreach programme to inner-city children and
teenagers of Great Commission Ministries
International.
One of the highlights of the pageant's activi-
ties thus far, has been a weekend retreat for the
contestants on Paradise Island. This was a time
of transformation, encouragement and ministry
for the contestants.
"The focus of this pageant is the spiritual. So
we're looking at developing inner beauty. The dif-
ference with our pageant is ministry. Throughout
the year our reigning queen works with her plat-
form. She also focuses on reaching out to young
people through outreach activities. So though all
of the girls are beautiful, it's all about developing
them inwardly. It's about spiritual development

Standing alone


IN the midst of a crowd,
we are each still an individual.
The Commonwealth of the
Bahamas is an independent
country made up of individu-
als capable of making person-
ally responsible choices. The
strength of a country is in the
character of its people.

In I Cor 13:4-7 (NIV), we are
reminded that; love is patient and
kind. Love is not jealous or boast-
ful or proud or rude. Love does not
demand its own way. Love is not
irritable, and it keeps no record of
when it has been wronged. It is
never glad about injustice but
rejoices whenever the truth wins
out. Love never gives up, never
loses faith, is always hopeful, and
endures through every
circumstance.

REV. ANGELA


PALACIOUS


When you love God, you wor-
ship, serve and obey God. When
you love yourself, you strive to be
a person of integrity exercising
self-discipline in all situations.
When you love others you give of
yourself, your resources, your
thoughts, your words of encourage-
ment, and your deeds of kindness.
Let us look at these considerations
as we reflect on nation building.
For me, integrity means: to be a
person of your word, truthful and
trustworthy, dependable and inten-
tional, principled and passionate
about what is good, conscious
about allocated tasks, courteous in
dealings with others, faithful in
duties and commitments, especially


.marriage and family.
It is a matter of making the
choice to be, like solid gold and not
counterfeit, like precious gems and
not costume jewellery, recognizing
one's worth and value to God and
living out that reality.
Self-discipline often entails:
standing alone in the face of oppo-
sition; learning to say 'no' when
others say .'let's go'; resisting the
temptation to be immoral or to do
what is illegal; and raising the bar
to the highest standards and keep-
ing it there, no matter what.
Generosity is the giving of self in
self-less service as well as sharing
resources in an act of hospitality.
Even to speak words of blessing,
encouragement, praise, forgive-
ness, healing to whom ever, when-
ever, however, is to be generous
and gracious.
Holiness operates with a sense of
wisdom, justice, wholeness and
humour when appropriate. It is to
want to be like God and to allow


the Holy Spirit to cause that to
happen gradually, one day at a
time. Never perfect but seeking
greater goodness in a prayerful
attitude commends us to God and
to each other.
The paradox of human existence
is this pull between the need to be
alone and stand alone as a unique
individual responding to God's per-
sonal call, and being created to
also live in community and find joy
and love in relationships. The
strength of character we each pos-
sess, along with-the differing gifts
we are expected to share, form the
basis for a society that is growing
in grace and spiritual maturity.
Are you wrapped up in your own
world with efforts to survive keep-
ing you isolated from others? Are
you so consumed with helping oth-
ers that you neglect your quiet
time with the Lord or absent your-
self from family activities? Find
where God wants you to be and be
at peace.


Thank you!


HOW do you say
thanks? Modern day
Christians, with their passion
for material things fueled by
the emotional prosperity
gospel, have a strange way
of saying and being thankful.

Ninety-five per cent of the confer-
ences, seminars, workshops, etc, that
are held in our churches are doing a
very good job of satisfying their follow-
er's appetite through high spirited,
emotionally selective messages on
God's blessings.
The message of the religious church
today has changed drastically; there
was a time when the church preached
and taught on holiness and the wages
of sin. This is certainly not the case
today whereas the message is more
"prosperity" centred and encourages
the people to get all that they can; and
can all that they get.
The churches of the Bahamas have
adopted the concepts and practices of
American churches in that every year
they hold or host various conferences
that primarily focus on getting some
form of blessings from God.
What does it really mean to be
thankful or. to say thanks to God?
As people, -with all that we've got


going for us here in the Bahamas,
we're constantly complaining about
what we don't have rather than thank-
ing God for that which we do have. As
a religious people, we are so twisted in
our thinking and envious of others to
the point that we totally ignore the fact
that Yahweh is faithfully fulfilling
Matthew 6:10; Give us this day our
daily bread.
Our atmosphere is filled to the over-
flowing with lies from the religious
leaders and their many (cash cow) con-
ferences, etc, that play on the emotions
of itchy ears followers who look for-
ward to hearing from their "pimps/pas-
tors" how God said that "He's going to
bless somebody in the service today".
Have you ever heard this before? "I
don't know who it is I'm talking too;
but God told me to tell you that this is
your day."
Here is something I do know. Any
man or woman who is suppose to be a
representative of the kingdom of heav-
en and an ambassador o[ Yahweh, that
gets up and says. "I don't know who


I'm talking to, but God told me to tell
you this or that"; such a person is a liar
and has not been sent from Yahweh.
In just a brief study of the word of
God, nowhere in the scriptures can you
find where Yahweh sends a message to
an unknown address. What the enemy
has done is that he has crept into the
church through man's religion and
denominations, and satisfied the carnal
nature of many within the church; and
the foolish religious leader calls it a
move of God.
In seeing what's going on in our
country I can only ask our hundreds of
bishops, apostles, doctors, pastors, etc,
that which the Apostle Paul asked the
churches in Galatia, "0 foolish
Galatians (Bahamians) who hath
bewitched you?"
At what point are we going to truly
give God thanks for providing our
daily bread rather than just looking to
the selfish (money hawks) religious
leaders to prophet-lie about what God
told them.
I serve notice on the religious com-
munity that the time is coming or has
come when various governments
worldwide will be forced to step in and
bring some order and.regulation to the
criminal acts that are being carried out
in the church, supposedly in Jesus'
name.
Religiously, we've been trained to


blame the devil for anything that seems
to come against the church and some of
its wicked practices. But I want to
assure .ju that are reading this article
- don't be so quick to blame the devil -
because God has a way of cleaning up
and exposing anything that doesn't line
up with His word.
I want to say to the church leaders
that name the name of Christ that
"during this time of famine and hard-
ship instead of investing money in the
refurbishing of the church building;
invest that same amount or even more
into the lives of the many hurting fam-
ilies within the church".
And then to you, my brothers and
sisters in Christ, stop allowing your-
selves to be taken by this twisted pros-
perity gospel and begin to give God
thanks for your daily bread.

Port Howe residents make


preparation for the island's


independence celebration


NEWLY elected local
government represen-
tative for Port Howe
Miss Daisymae Hunter demon-
strated for her contemporaries
and fellow islanders the quali-
ties of a great leader and one
who is called to serve.
It is evident that Ms Hunter truly
means business after recently being
elected to the honourable office of
local government representative on
June 26. She is saddled with the
formidable task of beautifying the
unkempt township of Port Howe,
located in the deep south of Cat
Island.
Days before our nation's 35th
Independence anniversary, Ms
Hunter gathered her fellow resi-
dents of Port Howe to assist with
beautifying the historic Arthur T
BaiiMroundaeout,1the only oneo .!:-
found on the island. u .* ;i


PORT HOWE residents involve
themselves in the beautification of
their settlement.


After the demise of Mr Arthur
Bain, the beauty of the roundabout
was allowed to deteriorate, but NiMs
Hunter felt it necessary to redeem
the beauty of the roundabout,
which stands as a gateway to Port
Howe, Devil's Point and
McQueen's.
When Father Chester Burton
traversed the square that afternoon
he was much impressed with the
number of able and willing partici-
pants who felt this project was a
worthy cause.
Fr Burton recognized the abili-
ties of Daisymae Hunter, whose
mother is a catechist in St Mark's
Anglican Church in Port Howe.
Daisymae, he noted, has displayed
the attributes of one who is called
to serve at any cost in any capaci-
ty, because of her drive and un% a-
vering determination.
Port Howe is indeed blessed with
a representative as ambitious and. .
v./vibrant as:Daisymnae Hunter.- i :i

Cat Island celebrates country's


35th anniversary of independence


) IN the picturesque
settlement of
Knowles, Cat Island,
in the courtyard of the
Ministry of Education Media
Centre Complex, residents
assembled in large numbers
to celebrate their nation's
35th anniversary.
In an ecumenical service second to
none, pastors and clergy from the vari-
ous. depom nations brought greetings
on this auspicious occasion.


Also in attendance were the island's
Senior Administrator Charles
'Dommie' King; newly elected first
woman chief councilor of the island Ms
Valderine Seymour, and Deputy Chief
Councilor Mr Alfred Daniels.
Father Chester Burton, in his
address, reminded residents that they
need not look far for their independ-
ence inspirational insight, but to direct
their attention to the motto found on
the coat of arms, which states,
"Forward, Upward, Onward
Together."
He further admonished his listeners
to reflect on the past, accept the pres-
ent, and prepare 'o'; th6 future as a


nation of believers never forgetting
their God who was with them then and
still is with them now.
At minutes to midnight Inspector
Philip Rolle paraded his cadre of offi-
cers down the main thoroughfare
which leads to the media centre.
Inspector Rolle drilled his officers
under the watchful eyes of the specta-
tors.
The onlookers were mesmerized as
the flag officers hoisted the Bahamian
flag, in a scene reminiscent of the his-
toric July 10, 1973 celebrations on Fort
Charlotte in New Providence.
After the mini tattoo there was a fire-
works displaythat lasted 15 minutes.

Miss Gospel

Bahamas Pageant

for their destiny and purpose to come
forth," Minalee Hanchell, administrator
of the Miss Gospel Bahamas Pageant,
told Tribune Religion.
In preparation for their big night, the
contestants have been training in personal-
grooming, etiquette, speech delivery, and
other areas over the past few months.
With the belief that true beauty comes
from within, the Miss Gospel Bahamas
contestants have also focused on spiritual
enlightenment, realizing their purpose,
and helping others.
Mrs Hanchell noted that the contest-
ants will be judged based on talent, gener-
al deportment and intelligence. They will
also be interviewed by a panel of judges.
Among the other activities that the con-
testants have participated in are a cour-
tesy call to Government House and a
speech competition. According to mem-
bers of the pageant committee, the audi-
ence was captivated by the encouraging
words of the contestants and the confi-
dence displayed as each young lady
relayed a powerful message, utilizing the
pageant's theme, 'A New Beginning'.
Ms Hanchell told Tribune Religion that
the theme is timely.
"With our theme, 'A New Beginning',
we're believing that this will be a new
beginning in the lives of those who
entered the pageant. And we believe that
for those who attended the pageant, God
will do something special in their lives,"
she explained.
On Sunday past, the contestants of the
Miss Gospel Bahamas Pageant joined the
congregation of Calvary Deliverance
Church in worship. The time of fellowship
was followed by a luncheon at
SuperClubs Breezes.
After the luncheon, the contestants
were guests on the "Women of Influence"
show, hosted by Minister Colamae
Collymore on 94.9 MORE FM.
By all appearances, participation in this
pageant has benefited the contestants. In
October, the committee held a reunion for
former contestants, all of whom expressed
gratitude for this pageant.
"It really was encouraging to hear the
contestants say how their lives have been
impacted or changed through this pag-
eant. Even the persons who didn't win
have had doors opened to them because
of this pageant," Mrs Hanchell told
Tribune Religion.
Through their scholarship prizes, the
winners have been able to complete terti-
ary-level studies. Other contestants have
had opportunities to minister in the
United States after someone saw their tal-
ent on display at the pageant.
Tickets for the 13th Annual Miss
Gospel Bahamas Pageant are available at
Great Commission Ministries, #16 Wulff
Road and Quality Fabrics, Mount Royal
Avenue. For more information call 328-

Passing through the




VALLEY OF THE

shadow- of


Today, I .would like to
encourage anyone facing or
dealing with death that if we
trust in Jesus today when
death comes knocking on our
door we will be able to say, "I
will fear nothing not even
death because God is with me
and He has the power to give
eternal life". /


AST week
while I was at
the hospital I
.m dealt with
Psalm 139, this week in the
same place, I would like to
deal with the 23rd Psalm.
Early on the morning of
Tuesday, July 15, cries were
heard throughout the north
wing of the Princess Margaret
Hospital (PMH) as children
and grandchildren moaned
the loss of their beloved
father. About an hour later
more cries were heard as chil-
dren moaned their caring
mother: "Mommy, why you
gone leave me so soon". As I
heard this I began to think
about the fate of my own
brother, and how I would
react if he was to die before
me. In light of this, I went
back to my custom and turned
to the scriptures, this week I
searched the 23rd Psalm.
Surely goodness and mercy shall fol-
low me all the days of my life: and I
will dwell in the house of the LORD
for ever.
Yea, though I walk in death's dark
vale,
Yet will I fear no ill:
For thou art with me, and thy rod
and staff my comfort still.
While looking at this Psalm, I
remembered when the late Ronald
Reagan was sworn in as president of
the United States. He said he hoped
for a "kinder and gentler America".
We need that type of world today
more than ever before. I would like to
invite you to allow me to take you to a
time and place where life was a little
kinder and a little gentler, simpler
than it is today.
Simpler yes: but just as difficult as it
is now to hold on to one's faith in God.
David was a man of faith, but he,-was


By CLEMEN

JOHNSON


still having some faith issues. But then
he remembered something, no I think
he remembered someone who had
been with him when he faced
Golgotha.
He remembered the God of his
father, and his father's father. So he
said even "though I walk though the
Valley of the Shadow of death, I will
fear no evil" because you were with
me then and I am sure you are with me
now.
So while I am dealing with a gamut
of emotions I have faith enough to
know that we serve a constant God,
who never changes. Mother or father
.might change, brothers and sisters
might disown you, friends might turn
their back on you, however God is still
the same today as he was yesterday.
His staff is still guiding you. While I
sat there hearing cries of anguish and
grief I reflected on verse 24.
Yea, though I walk through the val-
ley of the shadow of death, I will fear
no evil: for thou art with me; thy rod
and thy staff they comfort me. Psalms
23:4
Most of us are not aware that in
Israel there is a real Valley of the
Shadow of Death. It's deep. It's steep.
It's a very narrow canyon. The sun
only hits the floor of the valley at high
noon. The rest of the time the valley is
dark.
In reflecting on this fact of death, I
was cognizant of, three quick facts
ab6b6t"th&` valle' of "he ''shadbow 'ff


dehth that was passing over me:
I.The valley of death is
'Unavoidable'.
The valley of death is going to hap-
pen you can count on it. The Bible
tells us; "People, die once, and after
that they are judged." Hebrews 9:27
(GW)
God and man reconcile, not man
and man, so let's not say who is going
where today.
The Bible makes it plain that it is
appointed for all people to die we
don't live forever in this world. Death
is a fact of our existence no matter
how much we struggle against this fact
- it is unavoidable.


Fact number two is:
2.The valley of
'Unpredictable'.


death is


You can't plan your time of death,
who- would have thought. The time of
death is unpredictable, we just don't
know when our life will end. So it is
important that we get ready.
Fact three:
3.The valley of death is 'Impartial'.
No one is immune. No one escapes
death in this life. Death does not take
into account how much money you
have. Death does not take into
account what gender you are. Death
does not take into account how much
education you have. Death does not
even take into account how healthy
you are death will eventually come to
your door.
Facts about death seem somewhat
depressing but they are facts just the
same. But here is the good news. Here
is the reason we can have hope even
at the time of death:
A. I don't have to be afraid of the
valley of death.
Why? Because if I have a relation-
ship with God He has promised that
He will walk with me through that val-
ley. God has promised to walk with me
'His presence. God coes' not leave me


alone. "He walks with me." "He
guides me." That's what verse four
tells us:
Yea, though I walk through the val-
ley of the shadow of death, I will fear
no evil: for thou art with me; thy rod
anti thy staff they comfort me. Psalms
23:4 (KJV)
Let me give you another reason we
can have hope:
B. Jesus died, but He conquered
death.
Jesus stopped breathing. Jesus'
heart stopped beating. Jesus died but
He came back to life. That is what the
celebration of Easter is all about,
Jesus, who was dead, is alive again.
God brought Him back to life. The
grave of Jesus is empty no body lies
there. He is risen, he is now sitting at
the right hand of the father waiting on
us.
Here is another reason to have
hope:
C. If we put our trust in Jesus if we
build a relationship with Him He has
promised to give us eternal life. He
not only walks with us through the
Valley of the Shadow of Death "He
gives us eternal life". The best known
verse of the Bible confirms this fact.
John 3:16 says:
For God so loved the world that He
gave His only begotten Son, that who-
ever believes in Him should not perish
but have everlasting life. John 3:16
(NKJV)
If we trust in Jesus, death does not
go away.
It is UNAVOIDABLE
It is still UNPREDICTABLE
And it is still IMPARTIAL
But Jesus has promised to not only
walk with you through the Valley of
the Shadow of Death He will also
give you eternal life.
Today, I would like to encourage
anyone facing or dealing with death
that if we trust in Jesus today when
death comes knocking on our door we
will be able to say, "I will fear nothing
- not even death because God is with
me and He has the powerto give-eter-
nal life". Z1.. : t: ) r ,) qik ur adi w,

Government High School Class of 1978 celebrates in a worship

service at the Church of God of Prophecy East Street Tabernacle


T HIRTY years ago, a group of young peo-
ple, proud of their alma mater and proud
of their blue and white uniforms, marched for the
final time as students of the Government. High
School (GHS). They would collect their diploma,
exit the grounds of GHS and made their entrance
into the 'real world' only to discover that things are
not always as they appear to be.
There was much to be accomplished, but it was
going to take sleepless nights and hard work. With
a determination to succeed however, these alumni
rolled up their sleeves and began their life's work.
Most of them have excelled in their individual pur--
suits and are holding leading positions in various
professions in our nation.


PICTURED is Mr Anthony Cartwright, who brought
Remarks during the service, and who expressed his
appreciation for the opportunity to be a part of the
worship experience.
In honour of the time they spent together more
than 30 years ago, members of the class of GHS
1978 came together last month in a time of celebra-
tion and praise to God for his goodness in their lives
since their graduation in 1978. Look where God has
brought them from!


Speaker for the occasion was Bishop Woodley C
Thompson, who spoke on the topic, 'God Will See
You Through'. Bringing remarks during the service
was Mr Anthony Cartwright, who expressed his
appreciation for the opportunity to be a part of this
worship experience.
He further acknowledged that many of the mem-
bers of the GHS Class of 1978, in addition to their
achievements in the world, are born again believers
for which he is grateful, realizing that this is most
important.
Among those in attendance were members of the
planning committee: Timothy Treco, Doreth Dean
Campbell. Jessica Swann Rymer, Anthony
Cartwright, Calverna Small, Carolyn Humes Nairn
and Pamela Bullard.
