Improvement

in BGCSE

examination

results
SBy LLOYD ALLEN
tTHERE has been a minor
S improvement in the country's
national grade average of stu-
dents sitting the Bahamas Gen-
eral Certificate of Secondary
Education (BGCSE) examina-
tions, as the average rose from
last year's 'D' to a 'D+', Minis-
ter of Education Carl Bethel said
yesterday.
Mr Bethel announced yester-
day that the 2008 national average
for both the Bahamas Junior Cer-
tificate (BJC) and the BGCSE
examinations have risen.
According to Minister Bethel,
"In expressing pleasure at the
improvements in student achieve-
ment this year over the last year,
particularly in the BJC, but also in
the BGCSE, it must be acknowl7
edged that we are not yet at the
level that we need and earnestly
desire to attain."
Also commenting on the
results was Philip Simon, Execu-
tive Director at The Chamber of
Commerce. Simon says, "An
upward trend is good news."
However he adds, "Education
remains one of the top priorities
and business issues for the nation.
The better educated the poten-
tial work force, the better we are
to compete competetively."

Political party seniors shocked after

SENIOR members of a

the party has endured some

wildfire yesterday.
According to well-placed
party sources, the parlia-
mentarian was said to have
leadership aspirations -
despite his noticeable lack
of charisma and perceived
drive for the job.
However, as sources indi-
cate, this latest travesty has
undoubtedly scuttled any
future political dreams the
parliamentarian might have
had.
"He is finished," said one
source. "Where can he go
in the party now? Whenev-
er he opens his mouth they
will say, 'is this the guy
who got caught in front of
the whore house?' Come
on, he is finished."
Another political contact
added, that "there is no
coming back from this.
"It seems as if these guys
can't help from getting
themselves into trouble. If
anything, this clears the
way for anyone else who
one day wants to lead this
party," he said.

Claim that BPSU president made


'last-ditch effort to swing polls'


HELT INI


* By ALISON LOWE
Tribune Staff Reporter
alowe@tribunemedia.net
WITH the Bahamas Public Ser-
vice Union (BPSU) elections
looming, some of those opposing
current president John Pinder
claim he has made a "last-ditch
effort to swing" the September
polls by belatedly announcing
major upgrades to the BPSU hall
site.
The plans were announced at a
July ceremony to rename the hall
after PLP stalwart Clement T May-
nard a move which itself was
denounced as a smokescreenn"
tactic on the part on Mr Pinder to
hide his "love affair" with the
FNM, which is alleged to be com-
promising his ability to serve the
membership.
Taking the tone of their cam-
paign up a notch, candidates
Michael Stubbs, Sloane Smith,
Derrick Ferguson and Rudolph
Stubbs said: "We feel and our
members continue to express that
our president is basically in bed
with the government. This is evi-
dent by his deafening silence on
outstanding issues concerning our
members."
They added: "The fact that he
has secured architects drawing of
the new BPSU hall less than two
months before elections is seen by
us and our members at Ministry
of Works as just another political
ploy.".
Mr Stubbs, Mr Smith and Mr
Ferguson announced their inten-
tions in early July to run for Presi-
dent, Vice President and Secre-
tary-General of the country's sec-
ond largest union.
Rudolph Stubbs joined
the group who have dubbed
themselves the "Eagle Team" -
shortly afterwards, and also
will be running for Vice
President.
Their platform calls for greater
transparency, consultation and fis-
cal prudence in union business,
and they aim to fix the union's mal-
functioning medical plan which is
allegedly not accepted at Doctor's
Hospital and by numerous private-

doctors in light of financial prob-

Mr Smith told The Tribune it is
irresponsible of Mr Pinder to have
announced that a new BPSU hall
will be built at significant cost to
the union while the member's
medical plan has not been proper-
ly underwritten.
"It is amazing that a president
should come at this time with that,"
said Mr Smith.
"Why would we invest millions
in this and not try to secure the
people's medical fund first?"
The team-is also upset about an
alleged lack of consulatfibfnoh the
part of the incumbent president
about the renovation proposals.

Project

"Whom did he consult and did
he consult our members on the
largest possible scale? He must not
forget we are the ones who have to
pay for this project so we should
have been made aware of this from
at least three years ago."
Mr Pinder said in July that ren-
ovations would focus on turning
the site into a commercial-type
property which will include prop-
erty rentals, "a 24-hour day care
centre, a wellness centre, a state-of-
the-art training centre, a much larg-


er and improved meeting hall, and
will house the administration of
the union and the medical plan."
Construction, he said, would
begin within a few months, and
costs are projected to reach $4.5
million.
He attributed the decision to
name the hall in Mr Maynard's
honour4o his commitment to the
development and education of
public workers, and the fact that he
initially purchased the property
where the building now stands.
According to its website, the
BPSU represents around 5,000
public service workers, although
the Eagle Team claim member-
ship has fallen as a result of dis-
gruntlement with Mr Pinder's lead-
ership.
Among those represented are
employees located throughout gov-
ernment ministries, corporations
and boards.
The opposing group again
stressed their own independence
from "political alliance with or
commitment to any political party"
yesterday.
This follows an earlier rebuttal
in the wake of claims by Mr Pinder
that he was "hearing that the oppo-
sition is helping to finance some
of his opponents'" campaigns. A
message left for Mr Pinder was not
returned yesterday.

Bethel hails exam results improvement


* BY LLOYD ALLEN
THIS year's Bahamas Junior
Certificate (BJC) and Bahamas
General Certificate of Secondary
Education (BGCSE) results are
being hailed as a well-earned
improvement over last year by Edu-
cation Minister Carl Bethel and
senior officers at the Ministry of
Education.
Out of the 6,294 candidates who
took the BGCSE examination, 826
succeeded in passing five or more
subjects with a 'C' or a higher
grade.
In 2007, out of 6,397 candidates


only 788 students received grades of
'C' or higher in five or more sub-
jects. BGCSE results for 2008
revealed that eight local schools
showed improvements in their
overall performances. They include
CR Walker, CV Bethel, CC Sweet-
ing High, Government High, St
Andrews, Westminster, Mount
Carmel Preparatory, and South
Haven Christian School.
"A 'D' average is a true average
of attainment and that it is an
acceptable average from the point
of view of the department. There is
a disconnect between that view and
the expectations of the public,"

* By NATARIO McKENZIE


A WOMAN was fined $200 by a magistrate yes-
terday after admitting that she spanked a six-month-
old infant she was baby-sitting in an effort to quiet
him.
Pearline Hart, 54, of Elizabeth Estates, was
charged with child cruelty and was arraigned before
Magistrate Renee McKay at Court 6, Parliament
Street, yesterday morning.
According to court dockets, Hart, between Friday,
June 13, and Sunday, June 15, "ill-treated" the six-
month-old male infant who was in her care at the
time. Sergeant Alexander Bannister told the court
that Hart was caught on videotape hitting the infant
on more than one occasion.
According to the prosecutor, the videotape
showed that on June 13, Hart hit the infant on the
back of his legs three times with her hand.
Mr Bannister told the court that the video also
showed Hart on June 15, grabbing the infant up by
his arms and legs and hitting him on the upper part


of his body with the back of her hand. The infant's
mother reported the matter to police after seeing the
incident on video. Hart admitted that she had hit the
child, although she denied that she had used the
back of her hand. She claimed that her actions were
not excessive and were merely in an effort to quiet
the infant who was crying and screaming.
Hart's attorney Shaka Serville pushed for,the
prosecution to provide the videotapes. He told the
court that child discipline differs widely, and what
one might consider child cruelty is merely a disci-
plinary method to another.
Magistrate McKay said that she was concerned
about the degree of the spanking.
However, the prosecution was not in a position to
provide the court with the videotape of the inci-
dent. Sergeant Bannister admitted that while the
videotape would further assist the court, the accused
had already pleaded guilty to the charge and had
crossed the line by hitting the infant. Magistrate
McKay ordered Hart to pay a $200-fine or spend a
month in jail.


Minister Bethel said. According to
the examination and assessment
division of the Ministry of Educa-
tion, a grade of A, B, or C indicates
an above average mark, while a
grade: of 'D' is considered average,
and ai n E. F, or G indicates a below
average score.
According to the minister, there
Were ) B(10 'SE subjects which
show, ed record improvements when
compilIrcd to 2007.
Tlhey included art and design,
auto' mechanics, biology, book-
keeping and accounts, English lan-
guage, French, literature, office pro-
cedures and geography.


Minister Bethel noted that many
Family Schools also showed
improvements in their BJC results.
Those schools included St Francis
de Sales, Forest Heights, Moore's
Island All-Age School and Smith's
Memorial in Abaco; South Andros
High: Gateway Christian in Bimini;
Arthur's Town High in Cat Island:
Acklins High: NGM Major. North
Long Island High in Long Island;
Inagua All-Age School, and L N
Coakley in Exuma, among others.
Some of the New Providence
schools that recorded BJC improve-
ments were DW Davis, HO Nash,
LW Young and SC McPherson.

US also has its ballot paper problems


SAN DIEGO (AP) Come November,
more Americans might cast their ballots on
paper than in any other election in U.S. histo-
ry.
That wasn't supposed to happen. If every-
thing had gone according to the government's
$3 billion plan to upgrade voting technology
after the hanging-chad fiasco in Florida in 2000,
that sentence would read "electronic machines"
instead of paper.
Instead, thousands of touchscreen devices
are collecting dust in warehouses from Cali-
fornia to Florida, where officials worried about
hackers and fed up with technical glitches have
replaced the equipment with scanners that will
read paper ballots.
An Associated Press Election Research sur-
vey has found that 57-per cent of the United
States' registered voters live in counties that will
be relying on paper ballots this fall.
The number of registered voters in jurisdic-
tions that will rely mainly on electronic voting
machines has fallen from a high of 44 per cent
during the 2006 mid-term elections to 36 per
cent. Much of the rest of the electorate consists
of voters in New York state, who will be using
old-fashioned pull-lever machines.
In fact, because of growth in the electorate
over the past decade, expansion of absentee
voting rules, and expectations of high turnout
for the contest between Barack Obama and
John McCain, some experts are predicting a
record number of Americans will cast ballots on
paper this year.
"More people will be using computer-read
paper ballots than at any other time in the
. nation's history," said Kimball Brace, head of
Election Data Services, a consulting firm. "As
you get more registered voters and more peo-
ple in the pool, it exacerbates this bigger issues
of paper."
In 2000, about 97 million registered voters
lived in counties that relied on some form of
paper ballot, Brace said. That figure is expect-
ed to top 100 million this fall, according to the
AP data.
The return to paper creates extra stress on an
already-strapped election system. Cash-poor
counties will have to spend tens of millions of
dollars printing ballots. Voters, many of them
first-timers, may wind up confused by the bal-
lot formats and frustrated by long lines of peo-
ple waiting to use the scanners. And counting
all the paper could hold up the results of the
election.
"After 2000, there was a widespread revul-
sion about paper everyone had the mental
image of the guy cross-eyed looking at the
punch-card ballot," said Doug Chapin, director
of the watchdog organization Electionline. "But
there's no silver bullet. You're trading one set.
of problems for another."
All states but Idaho have junked the punch-
card ballots that caused so much trouble in
Florida. But many plan to use paper ballots
that require voters to fill in ovals with a pen.
The ballots are then read by digital scanners.
Unlike touchscreens, paper can't malfunc-
tion or be hacked into. But it has to be printed,

shipped and securely stored before and after
Election Day. Counties already paying to ware-
house electronic machines will have to buy
reams of card stock, print extras in multiple
languages, pay for delivery and eventually
destroy the unused ballots.
In counties, that are on their third system in
three presidential contests, officials are retrain-
ing workers in how to use the equipment and
demonstrate it to voters. Broward County, Fla.,
which was caught in the punch-card maelstrom
in 2000, has produced guides showing voters
how to feed their paper ballots into the scan-
ners.
Other counties making the switch, including
some of California's largest, are planning to
collect ballots at polling places and pay workers
overtime to feed them into industrial-size scan-
ners at central offices.
None of that is likely to prevent voters from
making other sports of mistakes, such as filling in
the wrong oval or using the wrong colour pen.
"A lot of officials are in damage-control
mode because they're going to try to limit the
problems of switching to paper," said Mike
Alvarez, an expert in voting technology at Cal-
tech in Pasadena. "You will have ballots not
showing up, being printed wrong, the litany of
mistakes voters make with these ballots, and
then there's incredible pressure in a crowded
polling place for people who are trying to make
their decision."
As Brace put it: "Paper is traditionally the
device that the public is really good at screwing
up."
In 2000, about 61 per cent of registered vot-
ers lived in counties that relied on some form of
paper ballot, whether punch-cards or fill-in-
the-oval forms, according to Election Data Sys-
tems. Only 13 per cent of voters lived in coun-
ties that used touchscreens or other e-voting
devices; the rest used pull-lever machines.
With fewer than 100 days until November 4,
the first concern for many election officials is
making sure they will be able to get all their bal-
lots printed bet ween the time the national,
state and local slates have been selected and
Election Day.
California, the nation's biggest electoral
prize, with more than 16 million people regis-
tered to vote, abruptly outlawed most elec-
tronic machines last summer, creating a poten-
tial crunch in the highly specialized ballot-print-
ing industry. Sa n Diego contracted with a
Washington state company after local busi-
nesses said they couldn't produce the 3.5 million
extra ballots in the two-month window.
Many paper ballots may wind up in the
shredder.
Last week, Ohio's secretary of state ordered
all 53 counties using electronic machines to
print paper ballots to accommodate voters in
November who opt out of e-voting. A similar
order during the primary resulted in the pulp-
ing of more than a million unused ballots after
only 14,484 voters, asked for them.

Legislation to



protect beaches,



coastlines, reefs



and wetlands


EDITOR, The Tribune.
PLEASE publish this open
letter to Prime Minister Hubert
Ingraham requesting legislation
to protect Bahamian beaches,
coastlines, reefs and wetlands.
The Rt Hon Hubert A Ingra-
ham, MP
Prime Minister and Minister
of Finance
Office of the Prime Minister
Nassau, The Bahamas
Dear Mr Ingraham:
Over the years, the Bahamian
Government has stated that
coastal ecosystems, including
wetlands, beaches and coral reefs,
are among the country's most
valuable assets.
The Government demon-
strated its commitment to pro-
tecting these assets by ratifying
the Convention on Biological
Diversity, the Ramsar Conven-
tion and by passing the Conser-
vation and Protection of
the Physical Landscape Act
1997.
However, in spite of interna-
tional agreements, national leg-
islation and frequently stated
proclamations, the Bahamian
Government continues to allow
developers to undertake projects
that destroy beaches, coastlines
and, in some cases, even entire
islands and reef systems. %
The Bahamas First State of
the Environment Report 2005
(GEO Bahamas 2005) reconfirms
this position when it states:
"Varying degrees of erosion
can be observed on many of the
beaches in The Bahamas. The
major causes are construction on
the sand dunes, removal of sand
dunes for development and
building in the active beach zone,
inappropriately siting structures
on the coastline in the active
beach zone, and ill-planned
coastal development."
In fact, over the past 20 years,
much of the most permanent
damage to beaches and coastlines
has resulted from development
on or too close to the shoreline.
In keeping with The Bahamas'
obligations and commitments, in
principle and in law, and in the
best interests of preserving the
natural assets of The Bahamas
for future generations, I urge the
Government of The Bahamas to:
Issue a public statement con-
firming that it supports the pro-
tection of Bahamian beaches apd
coastlines;
Stop immediately the con-
struction of channels, canals
and/or construction on or
through beaches;
Enact appropriate legislation
to establish minimum setbacks
for construction near the coasts

BEC bills and


fuel surcharge

EDITOR, The Tribune.

BEC bills and fuel surcharge are on the lips of most people
today more than the sip-sip of that personality or another as
certainly we cannot continue to be forced to pay these prices for
such a basic commodity.
In Budget 2008-09 it was announced that BEC will no longer,
for two years, pay anyCustom Duty or Stamp Tax on their fuel
Bunker C and Diesel it might be too early to see whether
this will have positive effect but certainly our last bills indicated
that even with a reduced consumption of units your bill more than
doubled.
If the truth was told during the Budget Debate surely it should
have been told that actually Government does not pay any elec-
tricity bill, per se, as they offset their bill against what BEC's liability
to Customs Duty and Stamp Tax is.
Minister of State responsible for Utilities indicates that BEC has
a serious cash-flow problem I can understand that if Govern-
ment has the luxury of not actually paying their bills and unless
they are now paying them, how can BEC have any cash as the fuel
cost even without Duty, etc, have gone up substantially.
Can the Minister of State confirm that BEC is now being paid
for utilities used by Government and its agencies and how much
is their monthly billings?
It is total madness, I suggest Editor, that the Ministry of
Finance cannot perceive and understand by leaving the Duty
on Diesel, this is having an enormous negative impact on the econ-
omy why increase jitney fares which will hurt hundreds of those
in the lower economic group whilst a simple adjustment of the
Duty will resolve what the Jitney operators need?
Gas Station operators guys you have to be kidding if you
really mean what you are saying your margins have not been
changed so what you made at $3.00 a gallon is the same today,
however we appreciate possibly your costs for operating have
increased, as BEC has gone up so much and your pumps run on
electricity.

EPA and its effect

on the Bahamas

EDITOR,
The Tribune.
Can someone tell me how many manufacturers in Europe will stop
selling product to The Bahamas or how many investors will stop
investing here if we do not sign on to the EPA?
Conversely, with the EU threatening to add an 8 per cent import duty
on crawfish imports from The Bahamas if we don't sign on, will this pre-
vent Bahamian crawfish exporters from selling to Europe, or will they
simply discount their price or find other buyers?
These actions of buyers and sellers are better known as the free mar-
ket. They transact business every day now without government involve-
ment.
Outside of government mechanisms already in place, like prevention
of fraud and misrepresentation between buyers and sellers, why do we
need an EPA to complicate the issue?

prime tourist spot


CAB-DRIVERS were furious
yesterday after a generator "the
size of a house" was left blocking
the entrance to one of Nassau's
prime tourist spots.
The huge box-like contraption
and its trailer stopped taxis gain-
ing access to Fort Charlotte,
where visitors get an insight into
18th century Nassau military life.
"The generator was apparent-
ly used at a weekend event and
was just left there," said Robert
Johnson, known to cab-driving
colleagues as "The Reconciler".
But a supervisor at the Antiq-
uities and Monuments Corpora-
tion yesterday said Mr Johnson's
complaints were unreasonable
as the generator only blocked
access for around five hours
between 5am and 10am on Tues-
day.
And he suggested that, before
complaining, people like Mr
Johnson should look at the big-
ger picture.
The supervisor said events like
the one over the weekend were
necessary for funding the upkeep
of the fort.
"Antiquities and Monuments
is not one of the major govern-
ment corporations, so you can
imagine our budget is substan-
tially smaller. The generator was
a part of a function that we had
rented the grounds out for over
the weekend it ended at five in
the morning," said the official.
He said that within 20 minutes
of a complaint reaching the cor-
poration about the generator still


being in place, the equipment
was being unwired, and moved.
"It is my fault that no 'detour'
sign was put in place," he admit-
ted, adding that Mr Johnson had
blown the situation out of pro-
portion.
"It's not something that hap-
pens every day."
But the taxi-driver was
adamant the affair was "just
slackness on the part of some-
body."
"The generator was left in the
moat where cab-drivers get
access to the fort entrance. This
was an impediment to tourism.
Passengers were complaining
and wondering why anyone
would do that."
Mr Johnson and other drivers
were incensed that a major
tourist spot should be obstructed
at a time when business is down.
"It is the 'don't care' attitude
that's so annoying," he told The
Tribune, "Tourism is down and
most cab-drivers are hurting.

While the economic situation in
the US is part of the problem, it
is also due to bad attitudes and
poor service."
At a time when Bahamians
were struggling for business, it
was unacceptable that the. fort
should be blocked off, he added.
"Business is getting so tight
that some drivers are sleeping all
night near the surrey parking lot
in downtown Nassau in the hope
of getting an early tour.
"Competition among drivers
is growing so fierce that some-
times it's downright nasty," he
said:

Diver almost killed




by a speedboat


* By DENISE MAYCOCK
Tribune Freeport Reporter
dmaycock@tribunemedia.net
FREEPORT A diver was almost run
over and killed by a speedboat at Taino
Beach during the Emancipation Day holi-
day, a senior police official reported on
Tuesday.
Christopher Pratt, 42, was out on a rubber
raft about 100 yards from the shore when
the incident occurred at around 6.45pm.
He was able to jump off the raft, barely
escaping serious injury and possible death.
Chief Superintendent Basil Rahming said
that Mr Pratt, a manager at the Grand


Bahama Shipyard, was using his rubber
raft for diving when he saw the speedboat
heading directly towards him at full
throttle.
"He just managed to dive overboard and
barely get out of the way before the boat
crashed into the raft and went hurling over
it," said Mr Rahming.
He said Mr Pratt escaped unhurt, how-
ever, the raft was badly damaged.
Investigations continue.
Police are also investigating a traffic acci-
dent which occurred on the August Monday
holiday.
A 36-year-old man walked away with
only minor injuries after his vehicle over-


turned on the West End Highway on Mon-
day.
According to police, George Duncombe
was driving his Nissan Altima along the
highway around 1.40am on Monday when
he lost control of the vehicle in the vicinity
of Bahama Beach.
Chief Supt Basil Rahming said Mr Dun-
combe was allegedly speeding and failed
to properly negotiate a curve. The vehicle
skidded off the road and overturned sever-
al times before coming to rest several hun-
dred feet in the bushes.
Mr Duncombe sustained only minor lac-
erations to his neck and refused medical
attention.


Energy independence


T HERE are petrole-
um deposits being
exploited off the northern
coast of Cuba. There are
petroleum deposits off the
Florida coast.
It therefore seems that it is
only a matter of time before
petroleum will be found
below the waters of The
Bahamas.
In fact it is surprising that
the companies that have been
granted exploration Licenses

since 1991 have not had suc-
cess as yet. I have to wonder
whether this is a result of
geology or apathy.
Maybe we should invite the
Chinese oil companies to
come and have a go.
That said, I am sure most
would agree that renewable
energy would be the more
desirable route to energy
independence.
Given the geography of
The Bahamas, which has


resulted in numerous small
population centres on sepa-
rate islands, wind power
appears to be an attractive
option.
In light of the plans to
divest the BEC, the time may


be right to ensure that what-
ever franchise is sold with the
company does not preclude
private power generation by
companies and individuals
who could sell any surplus
generated to their neigh-
bours.
It may also be timely for
the appropriate government
department to examine all
the options available to move
the nation down the road
towards energy indepen-
dence.
The technology is moving
rapidly in most areas of alter-
native and renewable energy,
so it would therefore appear
to be beneficial to constantly
monitor developments in
order to identify those which
could be of benefit to us.
Hopefully one day solar
energy will be affordable.
Then we could again say it's
better in The Bahamas.

THE TRIBUNE








THE 1 RIBUN~ I hUl-ibIJAY, AUGUS I 1, 2008, HAUL /


SEARS ROAD


Safe, tight-knit, a community


that makes us feel proud


* By CAPUCINE DAYEN

JUST a few feet away from
the hustle and bustle of
downtown Nassau, members of
the Sears Road community still
enjoy a bit of quiet.
Elva and Padderson Sweeting
have lived in the same old colo-
nial home on Sears Road for the
past 42 years.
The couple told The Tribune
yesterday that they feel safe in
the area and are proud of the
tight-knit community which exists
in their neighbourhood.
A small group of the area's
residents work together to make
the small park that they all share
as lively as possible.
Twice a month, the whole
neighbourhood comes together
in the park to share their stories
over some hot-dogs and sodas.
On Christmas and Columbus
Day, the Sweetings and their
neighbours manage to get almost
300 people together to celebrate
the holidays.
Gatherings and functions which
take place throughout year in the
neighbourhood allow the com-
munity to raise funds to maintain
the park they all have grown to
cherish.
However, not everything is
perfect for the Sweetings and
their neighbours.
Traffic has had a damaging
effect on the small neighbour-
hood.
There is not much traffic in the
morning, but in the afternoon
people coming off the Paradise
Island Bridge cross over Shirley
Street and then drive through
Sears Road, the Sweetings said.
The jitney buses also use the
road as a short-cut.
The noise the vehicles produce,
the Sweetings said, is very irritat-
ing for the community, which is
mostly made up of retirees.
The Sweeting's neighbour
Eugene Higgs moved from Har-
bour Island to the Sears Road
community 25 years ago.
He has kept his home authentic
and appreciates the fact that he
can count on his neighbours for
assistance.
Like the Sweetings, Mr Higgs
said that traffic in the area has
become a nuisance.
"The traffic has changed dras-
tically," he said.
When he first moved to the
area there was hardly any traffic
at all. Even though the traffic has
more than doubled in the last
couple of years, Mr Higgs said
that the government has done
nothing to minimize the negative
impact on the residents.

Scotiabank reaches out


to inner-city children


INNER-CITY children were
inspired to participate in after
school activities such as basket-
ball and were given new school
bags during this year's annual
Southern Recreational Grounds
Summer Youth Camp.
Now into it's 16th consecutive
year, the camp is spearheaded
by Perry Pratt and a group of
former outstanding athletes from
the area who are committed to
giving back to the community
that once helped to shape them
as young boys.
Among the group, Kingsley
"Boy" Moxey, Courtney "Old
Gal" Strachan, Benny Cooper
as well as others who grew up
around the "government
grounds" basketball courts.
During the summer camp,
which is sponsored by Scotia-
bank Bahamas, sessions were
held Monday through Friday
with complete basic fundamental
drills and pep talks about the
game, friendship and the lessons
of life.
"This was the kind of stuff
that got my attention and
attracted Scotiabank to the
group," said Michael Munnings,
Scotiabank's senior manager of
marketing and public relations.
"What Perry Pratt and his fel-
low instructors have been doing
for the past many years for the
inner-city kids is really what our
bank's social outreach pro-
gramme, called the 'Bright
Futures Programme', is all
about.
"We make it our business to
find outstanding services like
this worthwhile summer camp
to partner with and assist those
in our communities who really
need the help," he said.
Mr Pratt, now in his early for-
ties, said he was inspired to start
the camp 16 years ago when he
got a "burning desire" to do
something for the many young
people who were just "hanging
around" with nothing to do.
"I prayed about it and then
asked myself what could I do to
make a difference. Understand-
ing my limitations, I knew that I
liked basketball and really want-
ed to help the kids, so why not
teach them the little I knew
about the game, and here I am
16 years later still at it," he said.
"My group of instructors who
do this year in and year out, do it
for the love of the game and to

make a difference in our com-
munity. This is our way of trying
to stop crime and better the
mindset of our young people.
These are good kids, but they
need nurturing and love. They
need discipline and a helping
hand, that is why I am thankful
and most appreciative that Sco-
tiabank has taken the time out to
do what they do for the camp,"


Mr Pratt said.
This year, Scotiabank through
it's Bright Futures Programme,
journeyed to the Southern
Recreational Grounds to inspire
the children there.
Scotiabank then treated the
children to a lunch of pizzas,
chicken and soft drinks. They
also donated fully loaded school
bags to the children.


The Mercedes M-Class.

Beauty, brains and brawn.


When you think of the average SUV on
the road today, you think of road-
hogging, air-polluting gas guzzlers
that wouldn't know the meaning of
high precision and fuel efficiency if it
were emblazoned on their windshields.
But there is an alternative. The refined
M-Class from Mercedes-Benz.


With its superior German styling utilsing
only high-grade materials, its robust
engine power delivering exemplary
turn-on-a-dime performance whilst still
being frugal on fuel and its handling of
pot-holed roads and 1.5 ft. flooded
streets, the Mercedes-Benz M-Class is
clearly the best choice in SUVs.

teachers and administrators
'throughout the nation's
'schools, who he says, have
worked tirelessly, and in some

tions at times in an effort to
provide a quality education to
many students.
"Many administrators in the
public schools took up the chal-
lange at the beginning of the
2007/2008 academic year and
'included as one of their objec-
'tives for the academic year, the
"initiation of programmes which
Would result in improving the
performance of students on
national examinations," he
said.

FROM page one

A copy of the report is available inside 1,000 copies
of today's Tribime. Additional copies of the blueprint
can be downloaded at www.blueprintbahamas.com.
Mr Rigby said the booklet is "not political" but
addresses the myriad "vexing" issues successive gov-
ernments lost in "political tribalism" have not been
able to fix.
"I believe that we have to somehow move the
politics out of a national conversation (to) how do we
ensure that we build a country where all Bahamians
can be prosperous. Where our children could be
guaranteed of a sound, quality education. Where we
don't have to be having these empty discussions (on)
how do we fix our health-care system...How do we go
about protecting our borders?"
"Somehow, no matter which political party is in
office, election after election we have not been
able to fix these small, vexing problems and in the
mainstream what's happening in'my view is that the
greatest that we ought to be boasting about in our
country is being lost, because we are being labelled by
this political tribalism that exists."
The 31-page booklet, "A Blueprint for the Future",
outlines Mr Rigby's opinions on educational reform,
the justice system, the role of youth, Bahamian fam-
ilies, social advancement, protecting our democratic
principles and institutions, and other topics.
In chapter one of the report, Mr Rigby argues
that the country is facing an economic crisis due to
poor fiscal planning and lack of vision. He claims
the country's national economic priority is attracting
foreign investments for tourism developments,


ATLANTIS

instead of encouraging Bahamian ownership of the
economy.
"Bahamians must be the primary beneficiaries of
a growing economy...A new economic model must be
created which will build on the success already
achieved in the tourism and financial services sector,"
he suggests.
The model should include a 30-year national eco-
nomic development plan that addresses in part
Bahamian entrepreneurs, tourism development, the
establishment of a mayor for the city of Nassau,
manufacturing and industrial development, a new
tax regime and public sector reform.
At a press briefing yesterday to launch the book-
let, Mr Rigby said the publication "is not intended to
have all of the answers for our present and future
challenges" but should facilitate talks for a "struc-
tured framework for change."
"This document, too, was born out of a call for a
clear vision for The Bahamas. There remains the
perception that this nation is devoid of ideas and a
clear and progressive agenda. The Bahamian people
are quickly losing faith in our politics and are tired of
the political tribalism that exists in our country...1
have heard these sentiments and I want to be among
the future leaders of this country who accept the
mandate to inspire our people to dream of a better
Bahamas," Mr Rigby said.
Mr Rigby, an attorney at Gibson, Rigby and Co,
served as PLP chairman from 2002 to early 2008,
when he resigned from the post.

not a bank loan, it is a non-recourse loan; it's
about private investors who made private
investment in it," he said on Wednesday.
Mr Ginn flew to Grand Bahama to reaffirm
his company's commitment at West End, where
development of key elements of the projects
are beginning to take shape on the southern
ocean shore properties.
He explained that the loan was made on
about 668 of the 868 lots on three tracts of
land situated on the southern shore proper-


ties.
"Two hundred of those lots are sold and
released and they are in the hands of the own-
ers, so the loan is only on 668, and so that
property has an escrow account. We don't get
paid back for the escrow, part of the per cent of
the proceeds belong to payoff so... this loan is
going to be fine.
"They (CS) don't have any cost to finish up
those lots and they get 100 per cent of the pro-
ceeds on those lots, so... they are going to be
fine," Mr Ginn said.
Mr Ginn said that Credit Suisse approached
Ginn and made the loan offer for private
investors.
'" He stated that $134 million of the money
was put in a bankruptcy protected escrow
account for the sole purpose of completing the
development in the area. He said $36 million
alone was put in escrow for completion of the
first golf course.
t.^. i... He explained that Ginn's core property and
all north shore property in Old Bahama Bay,
which represents $200 million worth of invest-
ment, fall outside of the credit.
"There is no loan on it and there is no other


loan on it and that is where all core property
will go.
"All the money to develop all the facilities is
in place in an escrow account you can't get
it any safer than that, said Mr Ginn.
"It is a protected and completion on that
property and everything else associated .with
operation facilities. We own both golf courses
and all the land outside the facility, including
the harbour basin outside the facility, hotel,
restaurant, and club houses all of things it
takes to run that property, and OBB has no
debt on it and all funded by our equity and it
will continue to stay that way," he said.
Mr Ginn is confident that the Ginn will suc-
ceed in Grand Bahama. He also noted that
two of the three Ginn resorts are completed in
the US.
He said the economy and the housing market
is at an all time low in the US.
"I have been in the business for 40 years and
I have never seen one that got as much pro-
tection for customers that are buying, and much
commitment as our company has put up to
assure that we do what we say we are going to
do.
"Business is business and there are tough
times and the naysayers are going say what
they are gonna say, but at the end of day we are
going to be in the Bahamas for many genera-
tions to come and there is virtually nothing
that I can think now that can stop us from
making that goal become a reality," he said.
The Ginn project at West End sits on 1,975
acres of property that will consist of 4,400 con-
do and hotel units and 2,800 lots. A 20-storey
tower, mega yacht harbour, casino, and marina,
and two championship golf courses are some of
the key elements of the resort project.

According to reports,

of the now infamous
Mayfair Hotel on West

1.30am.
riteria: The MP, whose identity
is being withheld, was
plesaid to be seated in the

prostitute in the passen-

approached the car.
igh The Jamaican, sources
indicate, got out of the
car as the MP informed
officers that he was there
1g: simply to meet his
"friend". When asked if
the MP was her friend,
the prostitute is said to
have answered "yes".
As there was no proof
that the MP was engaged
in any affair with the

go without incident.

Bahamian men


post nude pictures ber World


on gay social


networking website kI AI AI l I -


FROM page one

The site is an online social
networking site for gay men,
where thousands of men from
around the world create pro-
files of themselves hoping to
meet other men interested in
some sort of relationship.
There is an entire section
dedicated to Bahamians on
the site as there is for other
countries. Men post pictures
of themselves, often nude,
along with other information
intended to entice potential
viewers to either begin a
friendship or set up a sexual
rend zvous.
Surprisingly, many of the
pictures show the faces of the
men, as the Bahamas is an
extremely homophobic coun-
try, and being identified as a
homosexual can lead to job
loss, ridicule and harassment.
Interesting categories are
used by the men to describe
themselves to potential view-
ers.
Along with traditional infor-
mation such as height, weight
and occupation, the profiles
often state what type of sex is
desired by the man group or
one-on-one in addition to
his HIV status.
Genital size and the man's
preferred sexual position in
the relationship is also a part
of the descriptions.
The site is very similar to
other social networking sites
such as Facebook and hi5
except that it has many sexu-
ally explicit pictures and it is
specifically geared for gay
men.
Men on the site claim to be
chefs, bankers, businessmen,
nurses and many other pro-
fessions.
"I think that as technology
becomes more widely avail-
able, more and more Bahami-
ans are meeting in virtual
spaces," said Erin Green, a
local gay, lesbian, bi-sexual


and transgendered (GLBT)
activist yesterday.
The Internet is allowing
Bahamians to experience
globalisation of their "social
lives" said Ms Greene, refer-
ring to the wider phenome-
non of social networking sites
homosexuals participate in a
similar fashion to heterosex-
uals.
Ms Greene said that she
does not believe that these
dating or networking sites are
inherently "unhealthy" or
"bad".
"Any new space for us to
socialise in and interact with
each other is a good thing,"
she said.
The fact that gay people are
barred from, or refuse to enter
traditional real spaces,
she explained, "makes a vir-
tual space even more appeal-
ing."
Ms Greene, however,
acknowledged that there are
predators on social network-
ing sites who are looking for
illegal sexual experiences.
These include paedophiles
and misguided minors seek-
ing attention and affection.
"This is a vexing problem
for the Bahamas as we are just
really entering the age of com-
puters," she said, noting that
the country has not yet creat-
ed the necessary infrastruc-
ture to facilitate the safe use of
the Internet.
"So we have a case of
underage boys assuming an
adult persona and initiating
relationships with grown men.
And grown men actively seek-
ing underage and young
boys...on the sites," she said.
It should not be assumed,
however, that most or many
of the men on the site are sex-
ual deviants.
One man who claims to be
Bahamian said on his profile
that he is merely a "sweet guy
looking for someone who
knows how to treat a real
Bahamian guy."

Government


plans to invest


in all-Bahamian


craft centre

Minister says there is 'a real

market in artistic creations'


* By KATHRYN
CAMPBELL
Bahamas Information
Services
GOVERNMENT is plan-
ning to invest in an all-Bahami-
an craft centre to be located
in the former Bahamas Cus-
toms Department building.
Minister of Education Carl
Bethel said that this centre will
allow Bahamians to have a
market to sell arts and crafts


to tourists.
Addressing the high school
students enrolled in the Min-
istry of Education and RBC
Finco's summer arts workshop
at the Mall at Marathon, Min-
ister Bethel said that there is "a
real market in artistic cre-
ations."
"Artists can make good
money. It's not only for pret-
ty," he said.

Pinnacle will 'discontinue'



Exuma casino in '08 Q3


* By CARA BRENNEN-
BETHEL
Business Reporter
Pinnacle Entertain-
ment Inc., parent
company of the
Casino on Emer-
ald Bay in Exurma,
reported that beginning in the
third quarter of 2008, they "will
reflect the business as a dis-
continued operation" since a
decision was made last month
to cease operations there.


Pinnacle yesterday reported
its financial results for the sec-
ond quarter and six months
ended June 30, 2008, posting
revenues of $267 million and
consolidated adjusted EBIT-
DA(1) of $37.6 million.
This was up from the second
quarter results of 2007, where
revenues were $233 million
and consolidated adjusted
EBITDA was $46 million.
It also reiterated that in July,
the company had decided to
sell or otherwise discontinue


operations of The'Casino at
Emerald Bay.
"This small casino is distant
from Pinnacle's other opera-
tions and its success is heavily
reliant on the neighboring
Four Seasons hotel. The own-
er of such hotel is currently in
receivership. Consequently,
beginning in the third quarter
of 2008, the company will
reflect the business as a dis-
continued operation and
record the appropriate asset
impairment charges," Pinnan-


cle said in a release.
Pinnacle's International seg-
ment's results, also posted yes-
terday, included figures for
Casino Magic Argentina and
The Casino a4 Emerald Bay.
"Revenues for the 2008 sec-
ond quarter increased to $10.2
million from $9.3 million in last
year's quarter due to a higher

Fitness centre to mark successful year


MEMBERSHIP at the fitness centre "has been

. By CARA BRENNEN-
BETHEL
Business Reporter
AS Bahamians seek to prioritise their
finances and expenses, one area feeling the
pinch is local gyms, as summer travel and back-
to-school preparations place membership on
the backburner.
Despite the economic downturn, one local
fitness centre has carved out its own niche and
is working to remain lucrative.
Women's Intuition's Fitness, located on
Rosetta Street, Palmdale, caters only to women
and is about to celebrate a successful first year
anniversary in a market that has proven most
profitable.
"I opened the gym about a year ago after
Curves closed downed because there really
remained a market for a circuit training centre
for women. A lot of women want to go to a
gym where it is comfortable and where you
don't have men cat-calling them, so this is in
response to that
need. SEE

Hotel Association's


educator internship

programme all set


IN an effort to expose young
persons to myriad job options in
the tourism sector, this month
over 200 of the nation's educa-
tors will spend a week in the
industry learning the best way
to prepare young people to take
advantage of those opportuni-
ties.
' The experience is part of the
Bahamas Hotel Association's
fifth Annual Summer Educator
Internship Program, beginning
August 18 in collaboration with
The Ministry of Education and
The Ministry of Tourism and
Aviation.
Public and private school
teachers, principals, counsellors,
and MOE subject specialists
from 31 subject areas and all
grade levels will align with local
business partners to get a hands-
on "snapshot" of the industry.
"We are thrilled to be able
to once again create this oppor-
tunity to strengthen and build
on the relationship we have
with the Ministry of Education
and educators throughout The
Bahamas. While tourism is the
lifeblood of our economy,,
teachers are its soul which
touches and influences our
potential employees in pro-
found ways.
"We welcome them into our
world to discover our unique-
ness and amazing array of chal-
lenges and opportunities to
build a world-class destination
of choice for us and our cus-
tomers," said Beverly Saunders,
a member of the BHA execu-
tive committee and vice-presi-
dent of training for Kerzner


International, and the volunteer
chairperson for BHA's work-
force development initiatives.
With more than 1,000 classi-
fications of jobs within the
tourism industry in The
Bahamas, the internship pro-
gramme presents a powerful
professional development
opportunity for educators to
enhance their understanding of
the industry and the opportu-
nities it presents to young peo-
ple.
According to programme
organizers, it is stimulating edu-
cators to explore new and inno-
vative teaching strategies to
bring tourism into the class-
room.
"We're encouraged by the
overwhelming response from
educators this year, from both
the public and private schools,
and from Grand Bahama and
the Family Islands as well," said
Ms Saunders.
For the first time this year,
the internship programme will
also be held on Grand Bahama
concurrent with the New Prov-
idence programme. Over 45
educators have signed up for
the programme on Grand
Bahama and 155 have regis-
tered from New Providence
and the Family Islands.
"Teachers lead by example
and not by telling. The 2008
Teachers Industry Internship
highlights the role educators
play in showing their students
what to do rather than telling

Economists: Fed stance may prevail into


'09


* By MARTIN CRUTSINGER
AP Economics Writer
WASHINGTON (AP) For a
second straight meeting, the Federal
Reserve has decided to remain on the
sidelines and leave interest rates
alone. In the opinion of many econo-
mists, that stance may prevail not only
for the rest of this year but well into
2009.
The thinking is that the Fed doesn't
want to cut interest rates further
because of concerns about inflation.
However, at the same time, the
majority of Fed officials don't want to
start raising interest rates because the
economy is still hobbled by mounting
job losses, a prolonged housing slump
and a severe credit crisis.
'The Fed cited both worries about
inflation and weak economic activity
in the statement it released after
Tuesday's meeting explaining its deci-
sion to leave its target for the federal
funds rate, the interest that banks
charge each other, unchanged at two
per cent.


The Fed may not have moved inter-
est rates on Tuesday but it certainly
moved Wall Street. Stocks, already
soaring, extended their advance, with
the Dow Jones industrial average fin-
ishing the day up 331.42 points, or
2.87 per cent. It was the biggest one-
day gain for the Dow since April 1.
Investors were cheered not only by
relief that the central bank did not
signal that rate hikes were imminent
but also by a continued drop in crude
oil prices, which fell as low as $118 a
barrel during the day and are now
down $28 from levels seen on July
11.
The lower oil prices not only help
motorists when they fill up gasoline
has fallen as well in recent weeks -
but also help the Fed by relieving
inflation pressures.
In a brief statement explaining
Tuesday's decision, Fed Chairman
Ben Bernanke and his colleagues said
the central bank is still concerned
about the weak economy and the dan-
gers posed by inflation.
"Although downside risks to

growth remain, the upside risks to
inflation are also of significant con-
cern to the committee," the Fed said,
splitting the difference between the
two opposing forces battering the
economy.
Analysts said the bottom line mes-
sage from the statement is that the
Fed doesn't plan to make any changes
in rates any time soon.
"Unless something really weird
happens, I don't see the Fed moving
before the November election," said
David Wyss, chief economist at Stan-
dard & Poor's in New York.
Many economist'; believe that the
overall economy, as measured by the
gross domestic product, will post mod-
erate growth of around two per cent
in the current July-September quar-
ter, helped by consumers continuing
to spend the rebate checks sent to
130 million households. But activity is
expected to plunge significantly in the
final three months of this year and
early in 2009 as the impact of the
rebate checks wears off.
Wyss said he is looking for GDP


to actually shrink in both the fourth
quarter and the first quarter of next
year, fulfilling the standard definition
of a recession as back-to-back quar-
ters of negative GDP.
However, Wyss looks for growth
to start rebounding next spring as the
problems related to housing begin to
lessen. It is then that he believes the
Fed will start raising interest rates as
it turns its attention to making sure a
rebounding economy doesn't ignite
inflation.
The November presidential elec-
tion is another reason many econo-
mists believe the Fed will prefer to
keep rates unchanged at its next two
meetings on September 16 and Octo-
ber 28-29.
"The Fed doesn't like to be in the
spotlight during the heat of a presi-
dential campaign," said David Jones,
chief economist at DMJ Advisors. "I
think they will prefer waiting now
until they can get a beater view of
how the economy is unfolding and
see if financial markets become less
fragile."

decline d 28 per cent to 2.9 bil-
lion CurIs ($4.5 billion),
according to Bertelsmann's
anInual report.
('ost cutting, including a five
per cent staff cut between 2006
and 2007. helped boost earn-
ings slightly from a year earlier,
even as physical media sales
slumped and the company sold
off its 1BMG Music Publishing
unit, the report said.
Pali Research analyst
Richard Greenfield said the
acquisition valued Sony BMG,
to be renamed Sony Music
Entertainment Inc., at $1.8 bil-
lion, just more than four times
its annual earnings power.
"It's already a pretty low val-
uation," Greenfield said. "It
shows you how the music busi-
ncs remains a very question-
;,ile business over the next
couple of years."
Sonv has made moves
recently to merge its content

In June, the company said it
would deliver movies and TV
shows to Bravia TVs via the
Internet before the content is
:Cleased on DVD, starting with
'Hancock" from Sony Pic-
I 1.1 'C'S.
The company also launched
a digital download service for
its PlayStation 3 game console
last month, and has previously
sold the console with a free
Blu-ray copy of the James
Bond movie, "Casino Royale."
It has a further opportunity
to leverage its music proper-

petitive karaoke game on the


PlayStation 3. Other compa-
nies have profited handsomely
from such breakaway music
games as ":Guitar Hero" and
"Rock Band."
Soleil-Hudson Square

said an attempt to use its music
properties in the high-margin
games business was a step in
the right direction.
"That's the future," he said,
adding it was unclear if the

was formed in August 2004.
Music lawyer Gary Stiffel-
man, whose Los Angeles-
based firm Ziffren, Brittenham
represents Sony BMG artists
Justin Timberlake, Alicia Keys,
Celine Dion and Yo-Yo Ma,
said he feared lesser known
artists might be hurt.
"At the top we don't feel the
artists are much affected," he
said. "The artists that are like-
ly to suffer are going to be the
ones on the margin."
Once the deal, which is sub-
ject to regulatory approvals, is
complete, Sony Music Enter-
tainment Inc. will be comprised
of several music labels, includ-
ing Arista Records, Columbia
Records, Epic Records, J
Records, Jive Records, RCA
Records and Zomba.
Its artists will include Celine
Dion, Bruce Springsteen,
Justin Timberlake and Usher,
among others.
The deal is not subject to
approval by Sony sharehold-
ers and is expected to close
before the end of the year.
Bertelsmann will take over a
limited amount of selected
European music catalog assets
from Sony BMG, which rep-
resents about $20 million, or
less than one per cent of Sony
BMG's revenue last year.
Sony BMG is the second-
largest music company in the
United States with a roughly
25 per cent share of the mar-
ket, according to Nielsen
SoundScan, which tracks sales
of albums, singles and digital
downloads.
Universal Music Group, a
unit of Vivendi SA, is No. 1
with 31 per cent, while Warner

Service sector



contracts as new




orders decrease


* By ELLEN SIMON
AP Business Writer

NEW YORK (AP) The
United States service sector
contracted in July as new
orders decreased and prices
rose, stifling growth for truck-


ers, retailers and insurers. Still,
the reading was better than
expected and stocks rose on
the news.
The Institute for Supply
Management, a trade group of
purchasing executives, said
Tuesday its reading of the ser-


vice sector was 49.5 in July, up
from 48.2 in June. It beat econ-
omists' prediction of a reading
of 49.0, according to the con-
sensus estimate of Wall Street
economists surveyed by Thom-
son/IFR.
A reading below 50 signals
contraction, while a reading
above 50 indicates growth.
In morning trading, the Dow
Jones industrial average rose
161.53 to 11,445.68. The Nas-
daq composite rose 31.01 to
2,316.57 and the Standard &
Poor's 500 rose 16.80 to
1,265.81.
The industries that grew
include entertainment, recre-
ation, scientific and technical
services, utilities, hotels and
restaurants.
The survey showed that
prices continued to rise, but at
a slower rate than in June.
In a good sign, companies'
order backlogs grew in July.
New export orders fell, how-
ever.
David Noah, president of
InterMart Inc., an eight-person
import-export software com-
pany, said sales are flat and
"it's taking longer for compa-
nies to pull the trigger on a pur-
chase."


News Corp

4Q profit

jumps 27

per cent

NEW YORK (AP) News
Corporation's fiscal fourth-
quarter earnings jumped 27 per
cent on profit from the sale of
assets and higher operating
earnings in its film, cable net-
works and newspaper units.
The New York-based media
conglomerate, which also owns
Twentieth Century Fox, Fox
News Channel and Dow Jones
& Co., publisher of The Wall
Street Journal, said net income
in the quarter ended June 30
rose to $1.13 billion, or 43 cents
per share, from $890 million, or
28 cents per share, a year ago.

them," said Oily Knowles, assis-
tant director of education and
programme participant.
Response from teachers and
educational professionals who
have participated in the shad-
owing programme in 2007 has
shown positive outcomes.
Many felt the experience
assisted them in being better
prepared for the delivery of
career interest and inventory
assessment tools with an
emphasis on helping students
take greater responsibility for
their careers in the hotel and
tourism related industry in the
future.


The private sector is partici-
pating at several levels, con-
ducting workshops following an
opening ceremony on the
changing workplace, and a 'con-
versation with industry leaders'
on the final day.
More than 35 hotels and
tourism-related businesses will
operate as placement and train-
ing sites for interns during the
targeted summer week of field
study in Nassau and Grand
Bahama.
Commenting on the fifth
anniversary of the highly suc-
cessful programme, BHA work-
force development manager
Bridget Murray stated: "We are


delighted to be celebrating our
fifth year of internships for our
educators. Having worked with
our educators over the years,
we are assured, from their com-
ments and commitment to the
programme, that they have ben-
efited tremendously from the
exposure. "The programme has
evolved over the years to
include more properties and
allied businesses, as well as
teachers participating in the
one-week immersion. We are
indebted to our host properties
and take this opportunity to
encourage others to join us in
hosting our esteemed educa-
tors!"

PINNACLE from 1B

Neuquen, Argentina. Adjusted
EBITDA was flat at $2.0 mil-
lion for the second 'quarter of
2008, reflecting inflation and ris-
ing costs," the company said.
Pinnacle also reported of its
international holdings: "As of
June 30, 2008, the net book val-
ue of the company's casino
related assets was approxi-
mately $3.4 million. For the
three months ended June 30,
2008 and 2007, the adjusted
EBITDA loss was $746,000 and
$452,000 respectively, and for
the six months ended June 30,
2008 and 2007, adjusted EBIT-
DA loss was $1.2 million and
$936,000, respectively. For the
12 months ended December 31,
2007, the adjusted EBITDA
loss was $1.6 million."

ship has been very good," Sab-
rina Ingraham told Tribune
Business in an interview yes-
terday. "We have women
come in from 13-80 and it is
ideal for them because it is
only 30 minutes a day for three
days a week. It is also afford-
able."
Ms Ingraham said that, like
other businesses, her gym is
experiencing the effects of the
economy, particular as
Bahamians seek to prioritise
and stretch their money. "We
have seen a slight decline, par-
ticulary in the summer months.
That is understandable though
because people's routine
changes in the summer, so
gyms all over see a drop. The
kids are out of school, people
are away, so membership to a


gym may be last on the list."'
She added that the business
is also feeling the cost of just
operating. "The cost of every-
thing is going up, just to main-
tain the machines is an added
expense."
In particular, said Ms Ingra-.
ham, "right now BEC is my
biggest challenge, because of
the high fuel surcharge I have
to run my air conditioning
from 5am to 8pmri each day -
that is essential so my bills are
huge."
The gym focuses on half-
hour training sessions which
allow women to use several
machines to work various parts
of the body and then do
stretches with a trainer.
They also do figure analysis,
weight, height and body fat
measurements.


Dear Shareholders,

Our overall sales in the 3rd quarter ended May 31, 2008 are down 15c compared to our 3rd
quarter sales last fiscal year ($3,396k compared to $3,997k). Sales in the concrete division for
this 3rd quarter are down over 32% on the same period last fiscal year ( $895k compared to
$1,323k) with the Home Centre's sales down 6.46% ($2.501k compared to $2,674k). Our oper-
ating expenses are 10% less in this 3rd quarter compared to the snme period last year ($916k
compared to $1,018k)

Our 9 months consolidated statement of operations show sales down 11.23% versus the same
9 months last fiscal ( $10,635k compared to $11,981k).

Similar to our 2nd quarter we are managing to reduce and contain our operating expenses.
However, despite reducing our operating expenses by a further 13.29% for the 9 months this
year, compared to the same 9 months last fiscal year, this has not been enough to offset the
decrease in gross profit as a result of the $1.3 million drop in revenue. With similar sales rev-
enues for the 9 months this year as to the same period last year, the company would have been
profitable.

Inventory is the single biggest challenge at the Home Centre. We have the potential sales but
because we have no additional new financing we rely solely on our daily sales to generate suf-
ficient cash to purchase more inventory.

We are now watching concrete at our new location inside the Bahama Rock facility in Freeport
and over the next several weeks we will dismantle, recondition, transport and re-assemble our
other batch plant, so that by August 31, 2008 we will have two batch plants operational at the
new site. Once this is completed we will have a first class concrete batch plant capable of pro-
ducing up to 140 cu yds of concrete per hour if required. We anticipate that with our new con-
crete batch site fully operational we will be an accredited concrete provider for both local and
foreign contractors bidding on any major projects on this island.

As we move into the last quarter of this fiscal year, should the present trends continue, we fore-
cast that the 4th quarter will be similar to the 3rd quarter and as such the company will report
a loss for the 12 months ending August 31, 2008.

profit jumps


33 percent
) CINCINNATI (AP) The Procter & Gamble Company
.; reported a 33 per cent jump in fourth-quarter profit Tuesday as
,_ the consumer products maker battles soaring energy and com-
0 modity costs with higher prices and product improvements.
nj P&G said results were also helped by good growth in devel-
_-: oping markets such as China and Russia, the weaker dollar, and
cost-cutting efforts. The maker of Tide detergent, Olay skin care
and Pampers diapers said it earned $3.02 billion, or 92 cents per
share, up from $2.27 billion, or 67 cents per share, a year earlier.

its third-quarter net income
dropped more than 30 per cent
due largely to costs associated
with its acquisition of Wild
Oats and a tough economy
that hurt consumer spending.
Its shares sank in after-hours
trading as the company also
drastically lowered its outlook
for 2009, suspended its divi-
dend and said it would open
fewer stores next year.

several given numbers. The object is to place the numbers 1 to

Kakuro Puzzle


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

Chess


Isaac Boleslavsky v Georgy
Lisitsyn, Leningrad 1956.
Boleslavsky got within one
game of a world title match and
was a creative chess thinker, yet
proved too good-natured and
easy going to stay at the top. At
Budapest 1950 he led by a point
with two games left in the
contest to decide Mikhail
Botvinnik's challenger, but drew
quickly twice to enable his
friend David Bronstein to catch
up. Boleslavsky again missed
chances to clinch the
subsequent play-off before
losing the final game. Some said
he sacrificed himself because
Bronstein could handle
Botvinnik better. Yet it was
Boleslavsky who changed chess
openings with two brilliant
ideas: Black's early e7-e5 in the
Sicilian against 1 e4 and the

Olympics come as



investments fall


short in China


* By TIM PARADISE
AP Business Writer
NEW YORK (AP) The
Olympics are bringing fresh
attention and money to China
at a time when some investors
might prefer to forget about
it.
Stocks in the country have
fallen sharply since last fall,
offering a painful reminder
that hard times can come to a
nation where "up" once
seemed like the only direction
for the economy and stocks.
The declines are raising ques-
tions about whether the much-
heralded economic expansion
of the world's most populous
country is simply on hiatus or
in for a more pronounced pull-
back.
Frederick Jiang, manager of
the Ivy Pacific Opportunities
Fund, contends the downturn
in stocks could benefit savvy
investors.
"I think it's going to be a
great opportunity to buy Chi-
nese shares because the long-
term growth will be there. Chi-
na is going to grow probably
three times as fast as theglob-
al average," he said.
"It's a very strong valuation
case," Jiang said of the decline
that has left stocks down more
than 40 per cent and those
shares restricted to Chinese
investors down more than 50
per cent from their highs last
fall.
Even investors in diversified
vehicles like mutual funds have
taken a hit. China region
mutual funds showed a nega-
tive return of 26.7 per cent this
year through the end of July,
according to fund tracker Lip-
per Inc.
Still, long-term investors
have seen hefty returns. China


region funds are showing a
five-year annualized return of
21.7 per cent as of the end of
July and a 10-year annualized
return of 16.8 per cent.
But while the drop in stocks
has meant investors could be
getting a better deal when they
buy, it doesn't mean the risks
have disappeared.
Jiang blames a scarcity of
resources from oil to raw
materials like iron ore with
squeezing economic growth.
"In the short-term there are a
lot of headwinds."
He doesn't think that an
economy running at a stead-
ier pace rather than a sprint is
a bad thing. The double-digit
growth seen in the past five
years is too much, he contends.
"I don't think China should
go back to the 11 to 12 per
cent rate. That's overheated."
He contends it should be clos-
er to nine to 10 per cent.
A moderate pullback in the
economy could actually bene-
fit longer-term investors, Jiang
contends.
"This slowdown should help
China to sustain growth for the
longer term," he said. "When
growth slows down the
demand for energy and the
demand for metal will come
down. That may bring down
the inflation."
Andrew Foster, acting chief
investment officer of Matthews
Asian Funds, also contends
that China has grown too
quickly but is encouraged that
more of its economic expan-
sion in recent .years has come
from domestic demand, not
simply from exports to the US
and other countries. This sig-
nifies an economy that is
maturing, he said.
That's not to say that the
world's factory wouldn't be hit


by a weakening global econo-
my.
"A slowdown in the US and
especially a global slowdown
will hit China," Foster said.
"Growth hasn't fallen off a
cliff. It's holding up reasonably
well*but moderating. That's
true in corporate earnings as
well as the macro economy,"
he said.
While Foster thinks the drop
in stocks in response to the
cooling economy has been
somewhat overwrought, he
remains concerned about ris-
ing prices because of their
effect on the economy and for
any disruptions they could
bring to economic reforms of
the past decade.
"Every major political tran-
sition in China has had infla-
tion at either the backdrop or
at the forefront," he said, high-
lighting the importance of
keeping prices in check.
But Foster hopes the gov-
ernment won't react hastily as
it tries to control inflation.
"Does an increase in the
inflation rate cause govern-
ment officials to clamp down
on the kinds of reforms that
have so benefited China's
economy?"
Ultimately, though, regard-
less of how bullish investors
might be on the country's
prospects it's not wise to invest
too heavily there, Foster
warned. Instead, as with any
investment, a measured
approach is best.
"I do think investors should
have some part of their port-
folio dedicated to these emerg-
ing growth stories in Asia. I
would question whether most
investors are well-served to
have dedicated exposure to a
single country. It's just too
volatile."

BTC's G$M roaming service is the simplest way to stay in touch when
travelling abroad. What's more with GPRS roaming you will have even more
ways to keep in touch. Remember you will be charged when you make and
receive calls when roaming.


Roaming Tips
Before you travel, always remember to check:
Your account status before you travel, and settle all outstanding balances.
The list of BTC roaming partners, paying special attention to their network frequency.
The frequency capabilities or your in. ,bl phone, t",ivnI.t, on the frequency of the
8TC roaming partner, you may require a phone which is:
1. Dual 6F m t -. Dual band refers to the c apj.itb;' of GSM network infrastructure and
handsets to operate across two frequency bands. E.g. SK'-. "", MHz.
2. Tri Band A tri-band mobile phone will operate on three different frequencies,
depending on tie aj..:,,lbil network. E.g, 850/1800/1900 MHz.
3. Q .ild tn.iid A quad-band mobile phone is operational on any of the four GSM
frequencies- e.g. 850/900/1g00/1900 MHz. This is inch.r' c he. >'ve or ,-.'
phone.
Check that your phone battery is fully charged before you travel, and be sure to take
along a power charger. For some countries you may require a power converter to
change from 1 0V to 220V.


Will my handset work when oamin'7?
It depends on your destination and type of handset.
A GSM dual band phone works in the USA, Canada and most C..' .. ., countries.
However, you will need a tri-band phone when you travel to Trinidad, Martinique,
Guadeloupe, Europe and the UK Quad-band phone works anywhere-in the world
provided we have a roaming agreement in that country.
GSM runs on different frequency bands for different regions: Asia Pacific 1800 MH-, North
America 850,S 9(i00 MHz andr Europe Y90 MHz.


Chooshwg a Roaming, Pr t.rn r
Once you have arrived at your destination, turn your mobile on, so that it can select a BTC
partner network. Once the phone has been. registered to a specific network, the name of
-.he mobile ser.'iice pro-.ider v. ii be displayed on the screen r .:,,.ur ph- i.c If your rl -rie
does not automatically select a network, you will need to do a manual selection. Using the
menu options on your phone, go ,to Network (or System) Selection and choose Manual.
Then select the BTC Roaming partner.

7Archaeologists uncover ancient city in Afghanistan


CHESHM-E-SHAFA,
Afghanistan
CENTURIES-OLD shards
of pottery mingle with spent
ammunition rounds on a wind-
swept mountainside in north-
, etn Afghanistan where French
archaeologists believe they have
,..dund a vast ancient city.
For years, villagers have dug
the baked earth on the heights
of Cheshm-e-Shafa for pottery
and coins to sell to antique
smugglers. Tracts of the site that
locals call the "City of Infidels"
look like a battleground, scarred


hb craters.
But now tribesmen dig angu-
lar trenches and preserve fragile
walls, working as laborers on
mn excavation atop a promon-
tory. To the north and east lies
an undulating landscape of bar-
ren red-tinted rock that was
once the ancient kingdom of
Bacteria: to the south a still-ver-
dant valley that leads to the
famed Buddhist ruins at
Bamiivan.
Roland Besenval, director of
the French Archaeological Del-
egation in Afghanistan.and
leading the excavation, is san-


guine about his helpers' previ-
ous harvesting of the site. "Gen-
erally the old looters make the
best diggers," he said with a
shrug.
A trip around the northern
province of Balkh is like an
odyssey through the centuries,
spanning the ancient Persian
empire, the conquests of
Alexander the Great and the
arrival of Islam. The French
mission has mapped some 135
sites of archaeological interest
in the region, best known for
the ancient trove found by a
Soviet archaeologist in the


Bacteria


1970s.
The Bactrian Hoard consisted
of exquisite gold jewelry and
ornaments from graves of
wealthy nomads, dated to the
1st century A.D. It was con-
cealed by its keepers in the
vaults of the presidential palace
in Kabul from the Taliban
regime and finally unlocked
after the militia's ouster.
The treasure, currently on
exhibition in the United States,
demonstrates the rich culture
that once thrived here, blending
influences from the web of trails
and trading routes known as the
Silk Road, that spread from
Rome and Greece to the Far
East and India.
But deeper historical under-
standing of ancient Bactria has
been stymied by the recent
decades of war and isolation
that severely restricted visits by
archaeologists.
"It's a huge task because we
are still facing the problem of
looting," said Besenval, who
first excavated in Afghanistan
36 years ago and speaks the
local language of Dari fluently.


"We know that objects are
going to Pakistan and on to the
international market. It's very
urgent work. If we don't do
something now, it will be too
late."
Looting was rife during the
civil war of the early 1990s when
Afghanistan lurched into law-
lessness. Locals say it subsided
under the Taliban's hardline
rule, but the Islamists' funda-
mentalism took its own toll on
Afghanistan's cultural history.
They destroyed the towering
Buddha statues of Bamiyan
chiseled more than 1,500 years
ago, and smashed hundreds of
statues in the national museum
simply because they portrayed
the human form.
The opening up of
Afghanistan did little to curb
the treasure hunters. British
author Rory Stewart, who made
an extraordinary solo hike
across the country in 2002,
wrote how poor tribesmen were
systematically pillaging the
remains of a lost ancient city
dating back to 12th century
around the towering minaret of

Jam in western Afghanistan.
State control is a little more
pervasive in Balkh but still
patchy. The provincial culture
authority says it has just 50
guards to protect historical sites
across an area nearly the size
of New Jersey.
Saleh Mohammad Khalecq,
a local poet and historian serv-
ing as the chief of the province's
cultural department, said the
guards ward off looters, but
concedes the only way to safe-
guard Afghanistan's rich her-
itage is through public educa-
tion.
"People are so poor. They are
just looking for ways to buy
bread. We need to open their
minds as they don't know the
value of their history. We have
to give them that knowledge
and then they will protect it."
he said.
Villagers hired as laborers at
Cheshm-e-Shafa recall how they
too used to be among hundreds
of locals who would scavenge
the site they are now paid 230
afghanis (US$4.60) a day to
excavate.

IN THIS PHOTO provided by the Wildlife Conservation Society, a western lowland gorilla silverback is seen among members of a group in the Republic of Congo Thursday,
July 31, 2008. A new census conducted by WCS and the government of the Republic of Congo tallied more than 125,000 western lowland gorillas in the northern part of the
country. Previous estimates from the 1980s placed the entire population of western lowland gorillas, which occur in seven Central African nations, at less than 100,000.




Scientists cheer gorilla





find, but warn of threats


* EDINBURGH, Scotland

CAN there be more lurking
in the mist? Despite a startling
find announced Tuesday that
*doubled the estimated number
of western lowland gorillas in
central Africa, scientists warned
that hundreds of primate species
remain in danger of extinction,
according to the Associated Press.
A census by the Wildlife Con-
servation Society raised the esti-
mate for gorillas in the Congo
jungle from between 50,000 and
100,000 to around 200,000, sub-
stantially changing the picture of
a great ape population thought
devastated by the Ebola virus,
hunting and deforestation.

Warning
While the news was well
received, scientists gathered at
the 22nd International Primato-
logical Society Congress in Edin-
burgh warned against celebrating
too soon.
"If verified, the discovery of
these new populations of gorilla
are hugely significant for our
work as conservationists, but we
must not be distracted from the


very real and present danger
these gorillas are in from man
and Ebola," said John Oates,
emeritus professor of primatol-
ogy at Hunter College in New
York. -
Oates saa that while the news
was good for the iconic great
apes made famous by Dian Fos-
sey in "Gorillas in the Mist,"
many lesser known primates are
in deepening peril.

Threatened
A report released Tuesday by
the International Union for Con-
servation of Nature and other
groups warned that nearly half
of the world's 634 species and
subspecies of primates are threat-
ened with extinction due to
human activity.
The figures were particularly
grim in Asia, where more than 70
percent of primates were on the
union's "Red List" of vulnera-
ble or endangered species.
"There is a danger that we
concentrate on the more famous
species," Oates said. "What
about the other species that
we've identified as in danger?
There are so many that are on


the brink of extinction."
Among them is the highland
gibbon, which counts just 19
known individuals. The review
warned it will be tough battle to
save that Asian primate from
extinction.
Simon Stuart, with Conserva-
tion International, which pro-
vided data for the review, said
primate populations are shrink-
ing in Asia due to hunting and
habitat destruction some
linked to the booming biofuel
industry.
"In Malaysia, Sumatra and
Borneo the big problem is
destruction of forests to make
way for palm oil and biofuels.
Ironically, with biofuels, some-
thing that is nominally associated
with helping the environment
can have harmful unintentional
consequences," Stuart said.
Scientists working in the
region described an uphill strug-
gle to save endangered animals.
Vicky Melfi, from the British-
based Whitley Wildlife Conser-
vation Trust, said the macaque
population had plummeted on
the Indonesian island of Sulawe-
si, where she spent three months


as part of a population count.
"In 1980 the population den-
sity (of macaques) was as much
as 300 individuals per square
kilometer. In 10 years this had
decreased to between 60 to 20
individuals per square kilome-
ter," she said.
"Imagine the human popula-
tion of the world reduced to that
of one small town. That's what
we are talking about here," Melfi
added.

A unique find
Oates, the New York-based
primatologist, said-scientists often
stumble on new species, but he
played down the probability of
finding large new hidden primate
populations such as the one iden-
tified in Congo by the Wildlife
Conservation Society, which is
based at the Bronx Zoo in New
York.
"The habitats in which they
live are largely impenetrable and
we constantly find new species,"
Oates said. "Having said that,
this (the western lowland goril-
las) remains a unique find. I
don't know if we'll ever find
something on this scale again."

New fears

about Olympic

press freedoms

* BEIJING

THE BEATING of two
Japanese journalists by police
in western China drew an
official apology Tuesday, but
Beijing also set new obstacles
for news outlets wanting to
report from Tiananmen
Square in the latest sign of
trouble for reporters cover-
ing the Olympics.
The International Olympic
Committee, which last week
only partially succeeded in
getting China to unblock
some Internet sites after jour-
nalists raised a furor, said it
would look into the new rules
that require reporters to
make appointments to do
reports at Tiananmen.
The Japanese government
and the Foreign Correspon-
dents Club of China con-
demned the roughing up of
the Japanese newsmen who
were covering an attack by
alleged Muslim separatists on
police in Xinjiang province.
The separate incidents
added to the impression that
China is not living up to
promises that foreign media
would have unrestricted
access during the games and
has reverted to the tight con-
trols that the communist govw
ernment keeps over the press
in normal times.
In the latest restriction, the
Beijing city government said'
on its Web site that Chinese
and foreign journalists who
want to report and filtn in
Tiananmen "are advised to
make advanced appointments
by phone." It said that will
help ensure orderly news-
gathering amid what are
expected to be large crowds
in the square on each day of
the games, which start Friday.
The notice did not specify
when the rule takes effect,
nor did it say what would
happen to news crews if they
tried to report from the
square without an appoint--.
nmen.Phone c,A ll Tuesday,
nigfhtAo the Beijing-govPrn-.
ment spokesman's office
seeking clarification rang
unanswered.
IOC spokeswoman Giselle
Davies said the new arrange-
ment did not match the com-
mittee's understanding of
access to Tiananmen and
promised to look into the sit-
uation.
"It wouldn't be how we
understand the operation
functioning.
"No doubt we can clear up
the matter quickly," Davies
said.
Surrounded by Beijing's
top landmarks, the square is
iconic'for its symbolism as
the seat of the communist
government. But the expanse
was also the focus of pro-
democracy demonstrations in
1989 that were violently
crushed by security forces,
arnd officials keep a close
watch on it.

Too young to

Calls for end to Saudi child marriages


* RIYADH, Saudi Arabia

AN 11-year-old boy gave out
invitations to his classmates for
a big event his family was plan-
ning this summer and it was-
n't his birthday party.
It was his wedding to a 10-
year-old cousin.
Muhammad al-Rashidi's mar-
riage was eventually put on
hold, his father said, after pres-
sure from the governor of the
northern province of Hail, who
considered the elementary
school student too young to
marry.
The case is among a recent
spate of marriages involving the
very young reported in the
media and by Saudi human
rights groups. They have been
widely denounced by activists,
clerics and others who say such
unioditta& haiftful to thfid 'fl-
dren and trivialize the institu-
tion of marriage.
Saudi Arabia is already
rocked by a high divorce rate
that has jumped from 25 per-
cent to 60 percent over the past
20 years, according to Noura al-
Shamlan, head of the research
department at the Center of
University Studies for Girls.
"We are studying this issue
so we can put an end to this
phenomenon," said Zuhair al-
Harithi, board member of the
Human Rights Commission, a
Saudi government-run rights
group. "These marriages vio-
late international agreements
the kingdom has signed."
Al-Harithi's group recently
succeeded in delaying the con-
summation of the marriage of a
10-year-old girl after getting
reports from medical centers in


Hail that she and a man in his
60s had showed up for the
mandatory prenuptial medical
tests.
He said the commission
wrote to the province's gover-
nor and head of Islamic courts
urging them to stop the mar-
riage.
But there are other marriages
involving children that have
gone ahead.
One involved a 15-year-old
girl whose father, Muhammad
Ali al-Zahrani, a death-row
inmate, married her off to a cell
mate who also was sentenced
to death. The father's sentence
was carried out July 21, when
he was beheaded for killing
another man.
Pictures of the wedding, held
in the prison in Taif for the
men, appeared in several news-
papers. Media reports said
inmates recited poems and
delivered speeches in the pres-
ence of prison officials. The
teenage bride and other
women, as is the custom here,
held a separate reception out-
side the jail.
The groom, Awad al-Harbi,
and his bride were allowed to
spend two nights together in a
special prison quarters after the
wedding, according to Al-
Watan. Al-Harbi told another
newspaper, Al-Madina, recent-
ly that his wife was pregnant.
There are no laws in Saudi
Arabia defining the minimum
age for marriage. Though a
woman's consent is legally
required, some marriage offi-
cials do not seek it. For exam-
ple, a father can marry off a 1-
year-old girl as long as sex is
delayed until she reaches puber-


ty, said one marriage official,
Ahmad al-Muabi.
Known as "ma'thoons," these
officials have legal authority to
preside over marriage contract
ceremonies. They ask the
groom and the woman's
guardian if they approve of the
marriage and then give them
the marriage papers to sign.
There are no statistics to
show how many marriages
involving children are per-
formed every year. And it's also
not clear whether these unions
are on the rise or whether peo-
ple are hearing about them
more now because of the preva-
lence of media outlets and easy
access to the Internet.
But the phenomenon is not
new, said Sheik Muhammad al-
Nujaimi, a strong opponent of
the marriages. He and other
clerics, activists and writers have
urged the government to pass
legislation setting the minimum
age for marriage and to resolve
differences among the king-
dom's religious authorities over
the issue.
"There are different (reli-
gious) opinions regarding the
marriages which is why we need
the government to settle the
issue through legislation," said
al-Nujaimi.
Such marriages occur not
only in Saudi Arabia. In April,
an 8-year-old Yemeni girl
sought out a judge to file for
divorce from a man nearly four
times her age. Her lawyer said
she was one of thousands of
underaged girls who have been
forced into marriages in Yemen,
an impoverished tribal country
at the southern tip of the Ara-
bian Peninsula.


S Korean firm delivers


commercial dog clones


* SEOUL, South Korea

BOOGER is back.
An American woman
received five puppies Tuesday
that were cloned from her
beloved late pitbull, becoming
the inaugural customer of a
South Korean company that says
it is the world's first successful
commercial canine cloning ser-
vice.
Seoul-based RNL Bio said the
clones of Bemarna McKinney's
dog Booger were born last week
after being cloned in coopera-
tion with a team of Seoul
National University scientists
who created the world's first
cloned dog in 2005.
"It's a miracle!" McKinney
repeatedly shouted Tuesday
when she saw the cloned
Boogers for which she paid
$50,000.
"Yes, I know you! You know
me, too!" McKinney said joyful-
ly, hugging the puppies, which
were sleeping with one of their
two surrogate mothers, both
Korean mixed breed dogs.
The team of scientists working
for RNL Bio is headed by Lee
Byeong-chun, a former col-
league of disgraced scientist
Hwang Woo-suk, who scandal-
ized the international scientific
community when his purported
breakthroughs in cloned stem
cells were revealed as fake in


2005.
Independent tests confirmed
the 2005 dog cloning was gen-
uine, and Lee's team has since
cloned more than 20 canines.
But RNL Bio said that its
cloning was the first successful
commercial cloning of a canine.
"RNL Bio is commencing its
worldwide services with Booger
as its first successful clone," the
company said in a statement.
McKinney contacted Lee after
Booger died of cancer in April
2006. She had earlier asked U.S.-
based Genetics Savings and
Clone to clone her dog but the
company shut down due to lack
of demand in late 2006 after only

producing a handful of cloned
cats and failing to produce any
dog clones.
The Korean scientists brought
the dog's frozen cells to Seoul
in March and nurtured them
before launching formal cloning
work in late May, according to
RNL Bio.
Lee's team have identified the
puppies as Booger's genuine
clones, and his university's foren-
sic medicine team is currently
conducting reconfirmation tests.
McKinney said she was espe-
cially attached to Booger
because he saved her life when
she was attacked by another dog
three times his size.

UK couple wed

strapped

to wings of

2 airplanes
* LONDON

IT WAS Katie and Dar-
ren's wedding day and they
were in the clouds -
strapped to the top of
biplanes reciting vows 1.000
feet above the carth, accord-
ing to the Associat'ld Press.
Katie Hodgson, 23, took
to the skies Tuesday in a full
bridal gown on the hop wing
of red-and-while plane oper-
ated by Team Guinot, a
group of stunt pilots. (;room
Darren McWalters, 24, flew
by her side on an identical
plane, while Rev. George
Bringhanm flying ahead of
the couple -- arrived them
over an airborne communi-
cations system.
Sky News television
footage of the ceremony
showed the bride's dressed
fluttering wildly in foul
weather as the three shouted
to make themselves heard
over the din of the aircraft.
"I ask you therefore. will
you love her, honor and
keep her and be faithful to
her so long as you both shall
live?" Bringham yelled.
"I will!" McWalteis yelled
back.
The airplanes sent out
trails of white smoke as the
couple belted out their vows
about 1,000 feet above the
ground. Special microphones
relayed the ceremony to
Rendcomb Airfield near the
English city of C'irencester
- 90 miles west of London
- where the wedding guests
were waiting. \Wind and rain
eventually cut the flight
short, but the couple said
they had a blast.
Hodgson said that as a girl
she never would have imag-
ined she would wed on the
wing of an airplane.

What's wrong with the Church?


Upon this rock I will build my
church; and the gates of hell shall not
prevail against it. MATTHEW 16:18B

IN the Hebrew the word church is:
ekkle_sia or ek-klay-see'-ah, which
means a chosen or called-out assembly.
As a people, we've been religiously
trained to equate the word church with
someTfrm of building structure where
folks gather on their set day/days of
worship to perform religious rituals.
What's wrong with this? I'm glad you
asked.
There is nothing wrong with believers
having a place where they can come
together and collectively worship (el-o-
heem') in spirit and in truth. But what
we've got today are thousands of reli-
gious entertainment houses which we
call churches where folks gather to per-
form .and be entertained with good
music.
In many of these settings if the
music/praise does not meet the enter-
taining expectations of the religious
mind-set, it will only be a matter of time
before they leave in search of another
place where their emotional needs can
be met.
The church of old/yesterday may not
have had all of the instruments and
equipment as the church of today, but
what they did have was much more of
God' anointing. The church today is
filled with religious folks who may have
received Jesus the Christ (Yeshuwa
Messiah) as their Saviour, but they've
not surrendered their lives to Him as
Lord.
The ekkle_sia ek-klay-see'-ah, the
church that Yeshuwa spoke of in
Matthew 16:18, is a called-out assembly;
those who have been cleansed by the
washing of the word (cf. John 15:3); and
not by music.
The gates of hell are prevailing


PASTOR

ALLEN


against many religious church goers,
marriages and families because of their
shallowness in the word of God for
which they've substituted music and
dance.
There are some folks who only go to
church for the praise and worship seg-
ment, and in some cases they are either
playing a musical instrument or singing
on a praise team; after they would have
performed the word of God is of little
value to them. The only difference
between this type of Christian and the
person in the night club/disco is the
serving of the alcohol beverage.
The question that is often asked is
"Where is the greater works that Jesus
said that the church would do?"
Well! The greater works will never be
seen among this emotional, entertain-
ment seeking generation but rather
among true worshippers. There is little
difference between the religious
church's praise and worship and the
ladies night or happy hour at the Crystal
Pistol Disco; whereas some of the same
musicians that are playing/serving in the
disco on Saturday nights are also play-
ing/serving in their churches on Sunday
mornings (Matt 6:24).
Any and.everybody can have a good,
emotional and entertaining time prais-
ing God; but the true worshippers are
the ones who will worship Him in spirit
and in truth.
The reverence/fear of God has long
left the religious church whereas
preachers and so-called worship leaders
can live any kind of life and boldly elt

back into the pulpit and perform their
duties. The religious church js nothing
more than a song and dance act to the
enemy; the divorce rate, adultery,
homosexuality, domestic- abuse, gam-
bling and fornication in the church is
just as high as or even higher than that
of the world.
What's wrong with the church?
If this question is being asked about
the church of Matt 16:18, the answer is
nothing is wrong with Yeshuwa's
church: for the gates of hell shall never
prevail against her. Now, as it relates to
the religious church, despite all of the
conferences, seminars, books that have
been written, tapes, CD's, etc, they are
powerless against the enemy.
The enemy has effectively deceived
the religious church in the area of praise
and worship to the point that they've
placed music and entertainment above


the word of God. If there is no praise
and worship most folks would boldly let
it be known that church is dead, that
ought to let you know where they are
spiritually. It's time to take the flesh and
entertainment out of the church and
restore true spiritual praise and worship
through clean, sanctified vessels of the
Most High God.

Avoiding 'burnout' among church

workers and volunteers Part 1


VERY simply put, burn-out is an
ailment (or as they would say in the
church, an 'affliction') which renders a
worker indifferent to the job, intensely
bored, highly irritable and basically
interested in three things: lunch hour,
'knock-off' time and pay day.
Please note carefully that at the outset,
burnout is not the same thing as fatigue,
laziness or discouragement. An employ-.
ee suffering from fatigue who takes a
nice, long vacation, will feel renewed
upon his/her return to the job. A church
worker or volunteer suffering from
fatigue or discouragement may feel like a
new person after a fiery and inspirational
sermon and he/she has had a good
'shout', a good cry or otherwise experi-
ence some other emotional discharge as a
result of "going forward to the altar for
prayer".
However, a good, long vacation or a
fiery, inspirational sermon will do noth-
ing for a person experiencing burnout
because, essentially, the crux of the mat-
ter is that such a person has the percep-
tion that he or she is giving (out) more
than he/she is receiving.
That perception is, for the person
involved, a firm reality, which brings
much of the person's available eneiies,
inner drive/motivation and overall inter-
est to a near standstill.
Church workers and other volunteers
can get 'burnt-out' when they are:
over-utilized, that is, made to func-
tion every Sunday /Sabbath, during the
week and on special occasions
given, and /or allowed to constantly
take on too many tasks
performing the same routine or
repetitive tasks, everyday or at every
worship event, for a long time
constantly performing in high-stress
areas
convinced that no one can do the job
better than they can, so delegation or
being a team player is out of the ques-
tion, and
given little opportunity to exercise
creativity on the job
Obviously, the antidote to burnout is to
effectively re-motivate the church worker
or the employee. On a secular job, the
manager's job of motivating an employee
is never done; it is an on-going task. In the
church, in most instances, the leader sees
his job of motivating church workers as
completed soon after the person is
appointed or assigned to an area. Therein
is the problem!
One of the best ways to motivate
church workers is by communicating your
respect and admiration for them as indi-
viduals, demonstrating that you value and
appreciate their work (especially if they
are unpaid volunteers), and providing a
caring environment in which they can
work. Once this happens, a lot of unrelat-
ed things begin to "fall into place" or to
be re-aligned, (Let me add parenthetical-
ly here something I cannot stress enough
as a leadership trainer, and that is that
every person designated as a leader in the
church, whether formally or 'informally',


DR ALBERT S


is making a contribution to the ministry
by virtue of this designation as leader or
people's informal acceptance of such a
leader).
At all times, that leader has a leader-
ship influence, whether positive or nega-
tive. So even a leader without a portfolio,
who is exerting a positive leadership
influence within the ministry community,
should be a target for motivation by the
ministry's chief leader because any posi-
tive behaviour which is not encouraged,
affirmed or (as'the social scientists say,
'reinforced'), soon ceases, and that posi-
tive behaviour will, in fact, soon become'
just the opposite (that's a law!).
Once a leader senses or observes signs
of burnout, I would suggest the following
.eight possible amelioration strategies,
based on the knowledge I have gained in
my secular corporate management career
when dealing with 'burnt-out' employees:
1. Broaden the employee's/church
worker's planning responsibilities
2. Involve the employee/church work-
er in departmental problem-solving
3. Broaden the employee's/church
worker's learning base through training
or by providing training opportunities
4. Reward the employee's/church
worker's contributions through recogni-
tion
5. Increase the employee's/church
worker's contact with peers and 'higher-
ups'
6. Give the employee/church worker
space and time to develop innovative
ideas
7. Communicate regularly and tangibly
your respect for these people as individu-
als
8. Make the working environment as
stimulating and stress-free as possible.
Now, having spent my entire life
around churches, at home and abroad, I
can easily come up with twice as many
Ways to de-motivate church workers and
volunteers and hasten their journey
toward becoming 'burnt-out'.
That's the entire substance of my next
exhortation, which I have entitled, "A
dozen and more easy ways to de-moti-
vate workers in the local church", which
is a continuation of this subject-matter.
Watch for it!

Cat Islanders celebrate 52 years



of Home Coming activities


DESCENDANTS of Cat Island
from all walks of life converged on
the pristine, tranquil shores of their
island home in anticipation of 52
years of regatta excellence.
In what is seen as the only home
coming activity of such mammoth
proportions, many Nassau residents
and descendants of Cat Island made
the annual pilgrimage back to their
birthplace.
Vernis Storr, pastor of Mount Sinai
Baptist Church, Douds, New Bight,
Cat Island, and members of her
church opened their doors on
Thursday to host a special service
that would invoke God's blessings
and presence on another Cat Island
regatta.
While Pastor Storr moderated the
event, many of the Nassau-based
committee members who were
responsible for organising the activi-
ties were not in attendance.
Pastor Harrison King said the
opening prayer, and Mrs Grace
Dorsett got the congregation into
the mood of the service with a praise
and worship segment. Catechist
Cedric Wilson, who also serves as
president of the Sailing Club, gave
the welcome address.
Remarks were also given by visit-
ing pastors and clergy, including
Father Chester Burton who brought
greeting from the entire Anglican
communion on the island. Next up
was Ms Valderine Seymour, chief
councilor and member of Mount
Sinai, and lastly Mr Charles D King,
senior island administrator for Cat
Island, who brought greetings.
Bishop Philemon Wilson gave the
charge. His text came from Genesis
4:9 "I do not know; am I my broth-


er s keepers". Bishop Wilson spoke
of the time in which he grew up as a
little boy when the plans were just in
the making to establish this long
held tradition of home coming.
He admonished the congregation
that we should never stray away
from old traditions that meant so
much to us. And to always realize
the importance of fellowship and
community, and looking out for the
interests of family, friends and neigh-
bours.
Also in attendance was Inspector
Philip Rolle, officer in charge of the
island.


MEMBERS of Mount Sinai Baptist Church in Cat Island enjoy the special
service in honour of the 2008 Home Coming activities.

THE Anglican community in the
Bahamas and the Turks and Caicos
will add to its ordained clergy when
Archbishop Drexel Gomez presides
over the ordination of Mr Bradley
Miller to the order of the diaconate.
Mr Miller was born in the quiet set-
lement of Green Castle, Eleuthera
and was baptized and confirmed in the
| Anglican Church of St Michael and.


All Angels Church.
He received his early education at
Green Castle Primary and the Rock
Sound Senior High School. He is a for-
mer police and prison officer, and has
worked in a number of firms as a'
member of their security team, includ-
ing the Broadcasting Corporation of
the Bahamas, Sun International and
the College of the Bahamas.
Upon the successful completion of
the Associate Degree programme in
Religious Studies at the College of the
Bahamas in 2006, Mr Miller left the
Bahamas to test his vocation to the
sacred priesthood. He travelled to
Barbados where he enrolled in
Codrington Theological College St


Johns, Barbados.
While in Barbados, Mr Miller
actively participated in seminary life,
serving in a number of capacities
around the college and taking assign-
ments in parishes around the island. In
May 2008 he graduated from
Codrington with a diploma in theolo-
gy and pastoral studies.
Mr Miller and his family are active
members of St George's Anglican
Church, where he has served as a lay
leader for many years. Upon his
return to the Bahamas he was

Follow the money

Archdeacon Palacious' office for
review.
In regard to salaries, under diocesan
regulations, priests are paid according
to seniority and not according to
church size, and the parish is restricted
in giving further financial compensa-
tion. So in the end a new priest, though
he heads a large parish, does not make
more money than a senior priest with a
smaller congregation. This is apart
from the Easter offering (given to the
priest), and the Pentecost or Whit
Sunday offering (given to the assistant
priest) each year.
This structure has been put in place
to ensure accountability on all levels,
and to remove all doubt over whether
or not funds are being misappropriat-
ed.
"Leaders have to be accountable.
And not only that, but they have to do
things transparently. You might not be
ripping off the church, but if you are,
for example, the sole signatory for
church cheques it can be suspicious,"
Archdeacon Palacious said.
While a church receives funds from a
variety of sources including through
public fundraising activities and
donors, tithes and offerings usually
account for the bulk of a church's earn-
ings.
Archdeacon Palacious said that for-
mulating an annual budget is a great
place for each church to start when it
comes to financial stewardship. This
budget, he added, should detail specific
dollar estimates for utilities, charitable


offerings, building costs, etc, that the
church anticipates. The budget is
agreed on by the financial board, and
half of the church's concerns are
already taken care of.
"You ought to have a budget because
it helps to curb some of the abuses that
could occur. Also, it allows you to see
how you performed in the previous
year.
"For example, if the budget was
$200,000 and you see at the end that
you spent $250,000, and the extra
$50,000 is placed in 'miscellaneous', it
raises some concerns," Archdeacon
Palacious -explained.
Having a 'miscellaneous' category in
the church's budget can be a trap for
even the well-meaning pastor or leader.
For this reason, Archdeacon Palacious
recommends that pastors place each
cost in a specific category and not sim-
ply stick it into 'miscellaneous'.
"Say the church allocates money for
charitable donations. The pastor ought
to be accountable there too. You don't
just don't say, oh Mary needs rent
money and take $800 without making a
notation. That's where people get into
problems. Then the books can't be
properly audited because there is no
documentation," he noted.
But how many churches have profes-
sional audits?
Though he has never been involved
with helping a church manage its
finances, Owen Bethel, president of
Montaque Corporate Partners in
Centreville (a financial consultancy
firm), suspects that most churches have
their own members who do the finan-


cial advising.
Mr Bethel believes that it is an excel-
lent idea for churches regardless of
size to have an independent audit that
will deal with the issues of accountabil-
ity, not only to parishioners, but will
help to maintain the church's credibili-
ty in the eyes of external donors who
wish to give funds.
While smaller churches may feel that
securing independent auditing services
is beyond their financial reach, Mr
Bethel said that they need only shop
around for an auditor who is willing to
work with them. They may be surprised
to find that auditors are flexible.
"There are always ways for a church
to succeed here. To a degree, a church
is considered a charitable organisation,
so it isn't always that brokers are look-
ing at remuneration; it could be done
pro bono or the audit can simply be
done on the basis of what the returns
are on the investments that are given to
[the auditor] to manage. So payments
can be given to him out of the proceeds
of those investments," Mr Bethel said.
For charitable organizations like a
church, however, Mr Bethel advises
that you find an investment advisor
who will be compensated on a perform-
ance basis, not a consultancy fee.
"This way, the advisor will be obli-
gated to prove themselves before any
payment is made. Finding a financial
advisor, as with most things, you have
to shop around and find out what fits
best and who is prepared to take on
your services to fit your budget," he
added.
When it comes to money matters in
any church, Mr Bethel believes that it is
"literally imperative" that the pastors
not have the only say as to how the
church funds are used. For example, it
is widely accepted that when withdraw-


ing funds from the church the pastor
cannot be the only signature. The
church, he said, is perceived not to be
the domain of one man particularly
when it comes to the financial
resources and assets of the church.
"One road to avoid is to create a
committee of members chosen because
they don't ask questions.
"You need a committee that truly is
independent in thought and can ask the
right questions and demand the neces-
sary answers because at the end of the
day they should all be held accountable
for the use or misuse of the church's
funds," Mr Bethel suggests.
For Archdeacon Palacious, it boils
down to preserving the integrity of the
church which may in fact be lost in the
public's eye. A growing number of crit-
ics, within and outside of the church,
believe that churches have become
nothing more than big businesses led
by misers rather than ministers.
In fairness to some pastors though,
Archdeacon Palacious pointed out,
many of them have either started these
churches or currently fund these
churches with their own money and
resources derived from jobs that they
hold (or held) in the secular world.
"They use their own money to lend
and give to the church. That's why
some of them believe that they own the
church and can do whatever they want
with the funds... "But the church is
God's church, and the people's church,"
he added.
Pastors should be aware that putting
systems in place for proper fund han-
dling is by no means a reflection of any
guilt on their part. It is, instead, a
means of maintaining the reputation of
the ~istor "and leaders, and a way to
remove unnecessary suspicion of finan-
cial mismanagement and mistrust.
