Young woman ,,,

reportedly found

hanging from tree -

'may have tried

to slit wrists' .


* By TANEKA THOMPSON
Tribune Staff Reporter
tthompson@tribunemedia.net
A' MOTHER of seven was
taken to hospital yesterday after
a passing neighbour thwarted
what is believed to be her.
attempt to commit suicide. The
neighbour saw the woman
"hanging from a tree" in the'
bushes near her mother's home
on Pitt Road.
According to reports from
residents of the area, the neigh-
bour was walking along a dirt:
path in the bushy area yesterday,
morning when he spotted the
victim trying to end her life.,
After rescuing her, neighbours
called police. Unconfirmed
reports from residents of the
area state the victim may have
tried to slit her wrists before she
tried to hang herself. .
The Tribune spoke with the
victim's mother, Princess
Knowles, outside her home. Ms
Knowles said she was asleep
when her 28-year-old daughter,


who she said has long-standing
drug abuse issues,:came to her
home to see her.
Ms Knowles said she was
tired from a long work-shift the
night before and told her
daughter to come back in an
hour for breakfast. Minutes lat-
er, Ms Knowles said she was
wakened by the shocking news
of what is believed to be her
daughter's attempt to end her
life.
f"I didn't really see it because
where I worked last night I was
sleepy, but my neighbour called
me and she tell me (my daugh-
ter) tried to kill herself and I
tell them to call the police."
She said the news stunned
her: "I was very surprised. I did-
n't (think) she would do some-
thing like that. I didn't know it
was that bad. When she (came
here) I tell her, 'Wait 'lil while,
let me get another hour sleep
man', so I thought she went to
sit out under the tree 'til I wake

FORTY-TWO employees of the Casino at the
Emerald Bay Resort, Exuma, have been issued letters
of termination and are demanding their severance
packages before the casino closes.
Yesterday, staff of the Pinnacle Entertainment casi-
no spoke out against the actions of the company,
claiming that Pinnacle was attempting to "hoodwink"
some of them into accepting "temporary employ-
ment" through January 2009 instead of their severance
packages.
It is understood that the casino at Emerald Bay
would cease all table games, and utilize only a skele-

New drive against


Bahamas breast


cancer 'epidemic

Local health group teams up with US Embassy and other partners


* By LLOYD ALLEN
IN an effort to assist in the
research and treatment of
breast cancer throughout the
Bahamas, the Cancer Society
yesterday announced the launch
of the Bahamas Breast Cancer
Initiative in conjunction with
the United States Embassy and
other partners.
US Ambassador Ned Siegel,
along with his wife Stephanie
Siegel, formally announced the
launch of the new initiative.
Ambassador Siegel said in his
presentation that recent reports
have revealed that more than
40 per cent of Bahamian
women who are diagnosed with
breast cancer, and subsequent-
ly die of the disease, are under
the age of 50.
"Even if we cannot eradicate
this disease, through our efforts
we can certainly improve the
odds for so many Bahamian
women through early detection,
proper education, and excellent
care," said Ambassador Siegel.
The ambassador explained
that the main function of the
BBCI is to facilitate collabora-
tion between Bahamian and
American medical profession-
als in ,an united effort to
improve research and preven-
tion methods.
He said that increased efforts
by BBCI and others is the only,
answer to the breast cancer
"epidemic,"
BBCI has also partnered with
the Susan G Komen foundation
in its effort to improve breast
cancer education, awareness,
treatment and prevention in the
Bahamas.
President of the foundation
Hala Moddelinog said that so
far, the Susan G Komen group
has invested more than $100
million in research, treatment,
public policy-and.eduk.atjon

Christian Council. a R P


American-based foundation has
pledged to spend an additional
$2 billion on these efforts, not
just in the US, but also coun-
tries like the Bahamas.
She said she knows that many
women spend a great deal of
their time taking care of f.mies.s
and loved,ones, but urged those
diagnosed with breast cancer to
take the time to ensure they


receive proper treatment, which
could ultimately save their lives.
BBCI along with the Komen
group will be hosting a walk-a-
thon on November 8 to further
spread the word on breast can-
cer awareness and to encour-
age more women to become
proactive in seeking testing and
treatment should they be diag-
nosed.

Haitian migrants in



Mud, Pigeon Pea 'will


not be repatriated



indiscriminately


* By MEGAN REYNOLDS
Tribune Staff Reporter
HAITIAN migrants living
in the Mud and Pigeon Pea
slums in the centre of Marsh
Harbour, Abaco, will not be
repatriated indiscriminately,
Minister df .Immigration
Branville McCartney said yes-
terday..
A Tribune visit to the com-
munity of up, to 5,000 people
living in dangerous and unsan-
itary conditions on govern-
ment and private land opposite
the Abaco Immigration office
raised concerns about how the
mix of legal and illegal
migrants and their Baharmian
descendants will be ordered.

Flights
; A routine "round-up" by
Immigration officers in Marsh
Harbour on Tuesday identi-
fied 20 suspected illegal immi-
grants in Peas and the Mud
who are now in the Abaco
detention centre awaiting
Bahamasair flights to Haiti.
Mr McCartney said there
are regular patrols of the Peas
and the Mud, but the migrant
Haitian community estab-
lished around 30 years ago is a
complicated problem.
He said: "It is not straight-
forward because we have per-
sons who are there legitimate-
ly, so we have to be very care-
ful about how we approach it.
"We do not want to do any-
thing contrary to the law.


Cancer survivor. is

'a symbol of hope'


* By LLOYD ALLEN
A BREAST cancer survivor
who lost her father, sister and
daughter to different types of
cancer, has become a symbol
of hope for a new breast can-
cer awareness initiative in the
Bahamas.
Toni Lewis, 37, is a recent
survivor of breast cancer and is
the subject of a painting that is
recognized by the Bahamas
Breast Cancer Initiative
(BBCI) as its "image of hope".
The BBCI is a new initiative
by the Bahamas Cancer Soci-
ety, in conjunction with United
States Embassy and other
partners, to assist in the
research and treatment of
breast cancer.
Mrs Lewis, speaking yester-
day at the launch of the initia-
tive, said that she was faced
with many challenges on her -
road to recovery.
Her father died from liver
cancer at the age of 30, and
her sister died at the age of 20
from cancer, which was discov-
ered after she had a tooth
removed.
Mrs Lewis was diagnosed
with-breast cancer in Novem-
ber 2006.
Just five months after her
diagnosis, her eight-year-old
daughter Treasure died as a
result of bone cancer.
Mrs Lewis said that through
it all she has learned that a
cancer diagnosis is not the end.
For her, she said, it was only
the beginning and added that
she is proud to be part of the
BBCI's efforts.
Mrs Lewis said she hopes
that more Bahamian women
make the effort to become
educated about breast cancer.
Medical researchers have
noted that there is an unusual-
ly high rate of cancer among
Bahamians, particularly young
Bahamians.
They also fearBthat an alarm-
ing number of Bahamian
women may carry a gene that
significantly increases the
chances of developing breast
cancer.
Local doctors say everyone
should become more educated'
Pbout the disease and have
regular scree' -'s fe-

MINISTER OF IMMIGRATION
Branville McCartney

"We have to make sure
what we do, we do profession-
ally.
"We don't want to infringe
on anybody's rights, we want
to make sure we do it the right
way, and we are keeping our
eye on it."
The main concern for
Amnesty International, said
local spokesman R E Barnes,
is that refugees seeking politi-
cal asylum will not be repatri-
ated in the same way as eco-
nomic migrants.
Mr Barnes said: "It is a sad
situation that people in the
Peas and the Mud are living


like that, and we hope some-
thing can be done about it, but
our main concern generally is
that Haitians who arrive in the
country are dealt with in terms
of international law, as in the
past we don't think the gov-
ernment has done enough to
investigate Haitians with
refugee status."
However, Mr McCartney,
who has taken an aggressive
approach to the repatriation
of Haitian migrants since he
came to office in June, said
care is being taken to distin-
guish genuine refugees escap-
ing political violence in Haiti
which has put their lives in
danger.
He said: "Our .officers do
make a distinction between
Haitians who are refugees and
migrants who are here for eco-
nomic reasons."
The Bahamas has agreed to
protocols under the office of
the United Nations High Com-
missioner for Refugees which
protects and supports refugees
and assists in their return or
resettlement.
Director of Immigration
Vernon Burrows has said:
"Some people think the most
popular thing to do would be
to take drastic measures, but
of course we cannot do that.
We have got to work within
the framework we have signed
up to."
Around $2 million has been
allocated to the Department
of Immigration for repatria-
tion exercises this fiscal
year.

Consumer paying for BEC inefficiency?


MANY BAHAMIANS now want to know
if BEC is passing on its full fuel costs to the
consumer. The reason for the question is that
citizens know that between its oil spills, and .
gas guzzling turbines, BEC is not. the most
efficient corporation in trying to keep down
its fuel costs.
Bahamians resent the thought which is
now a conviction that in addition to high-
er fuel costs, taxpayers are also paying for
this corporation's built-in inefficiency.
They want to know if government should
not take this inefficiency into consideration
and shoulder some of the cost.
Of course, in the end it all comes back to
the taxpayer, but at least what's shaved off
the gas bill can be put somewhere else where
the average citizen will have at least a choice
as to whether he needs the commodity or
can bypass it because he can't afford it. With
BEC the consumer has no choice.
Unless he wants to go back to the cave
and live in darkness, he has no choice over his
fuel supply. If he wants light, he has to trade
with BEC.
Someone was telling us this week of a'
businessman who ran his generator to reduce
his light bill. After a time,'he discovered that
it was cheaper for him to provide fuel for his
generator to keep his lights burning than to
face BEC's quarterly rates. ..
Apparently, according to our informant, an
inspector, presumably from BEC, caught on
to what was happening. The businessman
was told he was breaking the law. To be using
his generator when BEC's electricity was
available was not permitted, he was told.
"It's not that I could go down the road
and select a cheaper company to do business
with," he said. He resented the fact that he
was forced to trade with a government-owned
corporation he believed was making no effort
to protect his interests by trying to operate a
cheaper, more efficient plant, and now that he
had decided to assist himself, he was to be
prosecuted.
And so the complaints have persisted, dai-
ly getting louder.
Jerome Elliott, head of BEC's internal
renewable energy committee, says the cor- -.
portion has received a lot of interest from
Bahamas-based and international sources on
its Renewable Energy Power Generation
Tender, which closes September 12.
He said the tender invited proposals from
established renewable energy providers in


solar, wind, hydrokinetic (wave and ocean)
and biomass. "As far as the Bahamas is con-
cerned," said Mr Elliott, "the world is moving
on towards renewable energy. We have to
be a player, no matter how minimal it is. If
there is a shift away from traditional forms of
generation, we can't be the last person in
line. We have to be a player in that regard."
The world is desperate to be free of Mid-
dle East oil and unstable oil-producing
nations, headed by volatile dictators who can
hold nations to ransom for an expensive oil
barrel.
Even the once feared nuclear plant is com-
ing into its own. France produces 80 per cent
of its energy needs from nuclear plants and
more Americans are asking: "If France can
safely do it why can't we?"
Oil companies are drilling for oil in our
waters. We think we would prefer a natural
gas storage plant on Ocean Cay than ugly
oil rigs marring our marine landscape.
There is even a marijuana group that
explains that the reason it wants to legalize
"hemp has little to do with getting high, but a
great deal to do with fighting oil giants like
the once-powerful Saddam Hussein, Exxon
and Iran."
The marijuana lobby claims that hemp is
such a versatile raw material that its "products
not only compete with petroleum, but with
coal, natural gas, nuclear energy, pharma-
ceutical, timber and textile companies." This,
group has estimated that "methane and
methanol production alone from hemp grown
as bio-mass could replace 90 per cent of the
world's energy needs."
We can by-pass that suggestion.
On August 12, Russell Miller, Bahamas
Hotel Association president, wrote to Prime
Minister Hubert Ingraham, admitting that
the association hadn't the resources or exper-
tise to ascertain the environmental impact
of the AES LNG (natural gas) proposal, but
if it passed government's due diligence tests,.
then it is "clear that the conversion to natur-
al gas by BEC will significantly reduce our
present level of carbon emissions.
"We are confident," he told the Prime
Minister, "that any environmental concerns
with this proposal can be adequately
addressed and that the benefits to businesses
and residents far outweigh any potential lim-
ited impact. Prime Minister, we should note
that outside of payroll costs, energy costs are
the largest expenses to hotel operators."

nose.
In fact she had become
quite pale whilst in our care;
all the reason why we consid-
ered our case an extreme,
emergency.
Upon our arrival, we fol-
lowed the regular routine and
registered my niece which also
entailed informing the nurse
at the front desk about her
symptoms.
To my disbelief, she told us
to return the following day_
because there was not a pae-
diatrician on duty at that time,
and there was not going to be
one scheduled for that day.
Unbelievable!
Do they believe that babies
become ill only when paedia-
tricians are scheduled to
work?
After gathering my
thoughts, I then ask if another
doctor or nurse could at least
see the baby as there is an
antenatal ward in the hospi-
tal.
More than likely someone
who also is a trained profes-
sional can assist, even if he/she
was an intern.


The nurse's response was
"you will have to wait five to
six hours and that doctor can't
help you because you will still
peed to see a paediatrician.".
This nurse did not seem sym-
pathetic to any degree.
With disbelief and dismay
we then had to take the sick
child home and prayed to God
that she did not worsen during
the night.
The following morning, she
looked even worse and we
rushed her back to the hospi-
tal.
After seeing her condition,
they immediately gave her
oxygen.and authorised a few
other tests including x-rays.
The results proved that my
niece had pneumonia, an
internal fever and sinus.
. Although it is no secret that
most ,of the staff at the
Princess Margaret Hospital,
are disgruntled or fed up with
the procedures of health care,
why must-they pass this on to
the patients?
Also what about the doc-
tors the "trained profession-
als" aren't they there to bring
some relief to sick patients?
Whether or not it's their field,
they should have the mindset
and take the initiative to assist


any patient.
They chose a career that
encompasses care, sympathy,
and a general interest in ones
health.
If they cannot exude a bet-
ter attitude, they should not
be the ambassadors for such
an organisation.
Isn't the Princess Margaret
Hospital theoretically to be
the Heath Care Facility for
the people?
- Howdo they-provide health
Care if Doctors are not on
duty?
How do they provide
Health care if nurses and front
line staff address distressed
persons with such a pitiable
attitude towards your loved
one?
Something must be done
because this is not the way a
law-abiding Bahamian, who
has to pay taxes, should be
treated in his/her own coun-
try.
God forbid, a tourist would
have to go there some day.
It's so sad to know that in
the Bahamas most citizens
rely on the Public Health care
facilities and most of us can
only afford minimum life
insurance coverage.
. That means the lower class
Bahamians are suffering and
in fear of losing a loved one.

EDITOR, The Tribune.
THE time has long since
come and gone when the gov-
ernment should have pulled
the plug on the Cable Beach
saga involving Bahamar.
It is obvious that the princi-
pals of that company are
"challenged" with many
issues, apparently, such as:
financing, employee morale;
no vision; no credible casino
operator and, of course, pos-
sibly inept Bahamian and for-
eign managers.
The "deal", made originally
under the defunct PLP admin-
istration was a badone to start
with. Too much Crown land

was "given away" for pittance
money, ab initio (from the
beginning), was an apparent
"problem".
With the closure of the Nas-
sau Beach Hotel, the "kiss of
death", loomed on this fiasco.
The recent dismissal of scores
of long time, hard working
employees, including my
eldest child, Tamicka Bodie
Johnson (a sous chef with over
10 years experience) was the
straw that broke the camel's


back. Bahamar in my view, is
not a good deal for the
Bahamas and should be ter-
minated at the earliest oppor-
turnity.
When will-the Chinese enter

in all things be the glory.

Police 'will take action' if officers



are acting in 'substandard' manner


* By ALISON LOWE
Tribune Staff Reporter
alowe@tribunemedia.net
POLICE will take appropri-
ate action wherever it is deter-
mined that officers are con-
ducting themselves in a "sub-
standard" manner or doing
things that they should not be,
Acting Commissioner of Police
Reginald Ferguson said yester-
day.
According to the commis-
sioner, the fact that a proposed
transfer of numerous officers
from the Central Police Station
in the wake of corruption
claims has yet to go ahead does
not mean that it is not going to.
And in the meantime, an
investigation is underway
despite the fact that the offi-
cers remain, said Mr Ferguson.
The officers were accused
three weeks ago of smuggling
alcohol and drugs into the sta-
tion for inmates detained there,
as well as facilitating visits from
their wives and girlfriends with
whom they were allowed to
have sex at the station.
Jamaican suspect Omar
Smith, wanted in connection
with a drug case, was also able
to escape from the station on
July 21 allegedly with the help
of certain officers there.
On Tuesday, officer jn charge
of Central, Chief Superinten-
dent Bernis Pinder said that the
group of officers had not been
moved in the week and a half
since it was announced they
- would be because their replace-
ments "have not arrived".
He previously indicated the
transfer should be finalised by
the end of last week.
Since then, more damaging
claims have emerged about offi-
cers at the station, with it being
suggested an inmate suffered a
broken arm on Monday after
being "beaten" in a cell at the
station by some officers.
The offending officers includ-
ed some of those who were set
to be transferred because of the
corruption claims, the daily
reported.,
S' Mr Ferguson, yesterday told'- -


low up on any such claims.
"We are trying to implement
best practices," he added.


The Tribune that he "didn't
know that to be the case" when
queried as to whether the inci-
dent did involve those officers
who are set to be transferred.
However,.he expressed con-
fidence that the officers will yet
be moved, adding that the
investigation into the original
claims is ongoing despite the
fact that they remain at Cen-
tral.
Mr Ferguson said "it would
seem wise" to have the officers
"removed from that same place
while the investigation is being

desalinated


THE residents of Snug Cor-
ner, Mason's Bay in Central
Acklins and Salina Point in
South Acklins, are enjoying
high quality desalinated water
for the first time in the history
of the island as a result of recent
works completed by the Water
and Sewerage Corporation.
Both communities have
brand new distribution piping
systems supplied by new desali-
nation plants.
Over 100 customers are
already connected and more are
being processed daily accord-
ing to Corporation officials.
"The Corporation is very
appreciative of the support pro-
vided and understanding dis-
played by the communities dur-.
ing the project and it is hoped
that a formal commissioning
ceremony will be scheduled in
the near future to formally
mark this achievement," said
Robert Deal, assistant general.


manager of the Family Islands
and marine operations for the
Water and Sewerage Corpora-
tion. The Acklins project includ-
ed approximately 23,000 feet of
new mains in Snug Corner,
Mason's Bay, and another
12,000 feet of new water mains
in Salina Point. In addition to
the new water.supply, an oper-
ations centre for Corporation
customers was completed in
Snug Corner which will serve
as a commercial centre for Cor-
poration customers on the
island and as a staff facility.
Total 'project expenditure was
well over $1 million.
This project follows on the
heels of the Long Cay desali-
nation plant project that was
completed in August 2007 and
the Sweetings Cay desalination
plant project that was complet-
ed in March 2008.
Next 6n the Corporation's
agenda is a small desalination


plant and distribution system
for Current Island, Eleuthera.
The Corporation has award-
ed a contract to Watermakers
Incorporated for the supply and
operation of the desalination
plant and bidding is now in
progress for the installation of
the distribution system.
It is hoped that this new
desalinated water supply could
be operational and ready for
this Christmas.
Meanwhile in Little Exuma,
the Corporation is preparing to.
extend distribution and trans-
mission mains from Rolletown
to Williams Town at a cost of
over $2 million. The tender
process for these works should
commence shortly. The Corpo-
ration has also received the gov-
ernment's approval to proceed
with a $3.6 million project to
serve all of Green Turtle Cay,
Abaco, via an underwater main
from mainland Abaco. The pro-


ject will consist of approxi-
mately 15,000 feet of underwa-
ter mains and another 26,000
feet of transmission and distri-
bution mains on the island serv-
ing all potential customers.
This will be a complex pro-
ject due to its many components
and it is projected that the initial
supplies will commence during
the summer of 2009.
"The Corporation will con-
tinue to work with the govern-
ment of the Bahamas as we
seek to bring potable water to
each and every resident of the
Bahamas at the earliest oppor-
tunity while appreciating that
due to the archipelagic nature of
the Bahamas and the inherent
logistical challenges and neces-
sary duplications of key systems,
this will require substantial
investment," said Godfrey Sher-
man, general manager at the
Water and Sewerage Corpora-
tion.

Bahamas conference to showcase


opportunities in maritime industry


NASSAU-BASED Ship-
ping companies are intensi-
fying their efforts to attract
more Bahamians to careers
in the maritime industry.
"There are a lot of oppor-
tunities there," said John
Moyell, vice president of
the Clipper Group, as they
prepared for the first
Bahamas International Mar-
itime Conference and Trade
Show slated for Freeport,
Grand Bahama. "Great
careers can be established.
"We work very closely
with the Bahamas Maritime
Cadet Corp 'to spread the
word around for young
Bahamians to be more
interested' in seagoing
Careers.
"We have young Bahami-
an cadets' on some. of our
ships, but we sure do not
have enough."
: Beginning November 19
at the Westin at Our Lucaya


Resort, the three-day con-
ference and trade show will
showcase the multiple facets
of the Bahamas' maritime
industry, particularly as they
relate to transshipment,
trade, ship ownership, reg-
istry services, ship repair
and other things. The theme
is 'Opportunities in Trade
and Maritime Services'.
Address
The conference will be
opened by Prime Minister
Hubert Ingraham and Inter-,
national Maritime Organi-
sation secretary general
Efthimios E Mitropoulos
will deliver the keynote
address.
"This will put the
Bahamas on the map as a
leading maritime country,,"
said Mr Moyell. "It is
important that we have


more activities relating to
the maritime world taking
place here."
Kamanna Valluri, manag-
ing director and president
of Dockendale Shipping
said they are "look forward
to playing an even greater
role in promoting Bahamian
maritime cadets and engi-
neers.
"There is a demand for
them, and the Bahamas,
having the third largest ship
registry in the world, should
be taking more advantage
of these opportunities.".
Minister of the Environ-
ment Earl DeVeaux said the
conference and trade show
"is extremely good news for
the Bahamas. It is a time
when stakeholders come
together to discuss issues
facing the industry."
He met with Nassau-,
based shippers on Monday.
"There is great interest in


growing the maritime indus-
try and we have an early
indication that people in the
industry are prepared to
substantially support an ini-
tiative to develop the mar-
itime industry in the
Bahamas," he said.
Amendment
"Incredible opportuni-
ties" await qualified
Bahamians, and with the
proposed amendment to the
Boat Registration Act "we
can encourage more
Bahamians to get involved
in the maritime industry,"
said Mr Deveaux.
"There is also a huge and
growing market for large
yachts and we want to
expand our registry in that
direction which could open
more opportunities for
Bahamians."

CONSTRUCTION will
begin on the interim campus
of Ross University on August
25, only four weeks after the
public announcement of the
Bahamas campus.
The works to be carried out
consist of the fitting out of
around 30,000 square feet of
space in the Seahorse Shop-
ping Centre in Freeport, con-
struction of administration
and faculty spaces as well as
classrooms.
Other support areas such as
restrooms, storage and. IT
spaces will make up the total
scope of the work.
The cost of this work will
be around $2 million. Com-
pletion is slated for Decem-
ber 31.
According to Bruce
LaFleur, Ross University's
architect and construction
manager, emphasis was placed
from the start on, hiring local
Grand Bahama firms for the
construction improvements to
the interim Ross campus.
"I was instructed to identify
all of the local firms that had
the resources to complete such
a large project in such a short
time period. All of the firms I
identified were provided with
the same information, and
were invited to submit sealed
construction bids," explained


"All Bahamas
Construction Ltd.
is pleased to have
this opportunity
to work with
Ross University
on this important
project."

Wolfgang Geiger
LaFleur.
/In keeping with Ross poli-
cies regarding an open and fair
bidding process, all bidders
were asked to be present at
the meeting on August 20
when sealed bids were first
presented to Ross, and
opened in front of all bidders.
Each bid was read publicly
and verified for completeness
by. Ross officials and Bruce
LaFleur and Associates. Once
this process was completed the
bid was awarded to the lowest
bidder, which was All.
Bahamas Construction Co Ltd
(ABC).
"We had two goals for this
process," said Sandi Cutler,
Ross vice president for plan-
ning and business develop-


SNew classes ire forming now. Call Success for registration


ment, who is overseeing the
Bahamas project. "The first
was to select a local firm capa-
ble of completing this c6m-
plex project. The second was
to begin to establish a local
reputation for fair and honest
business dealings. We plan to
build a number of additional
structures over the next few
years and want the local build-
ing industry to know that
every company will have
equal access to our business.
We plan to use a similar pub-
lic process for future con-
struction projects."
President of ABC Wolfgang
Geiger said: "All Bahamas
Construction Ltd. is pleased
to have this opportunity to
work with Ross University on
this important project, and we
will work diligently and effec-
tively to complete the interim
campus for their January 2009
opening."
Classes for the first semester
of the Bahamas Ross Univer-
sity interim campus are set to
commence in January 2009
with around 250 students and
50 faculty and staff.
The hiring of staff and fac-'
ulty is already underway. The
university will use this cam-
pus until the official campus
is completed and opened in.

Women receive gifts and certificates of
appreciation from Tourism officials


OFFICIALS from the Min-
istry of Tourism recently
expressed appreciation for two
long-time visitors to the
Bahamas.
New .Yorker Victoria Sim-
mons first visited the Bahamas
in 1973, the year the country
achieved Independence.
Thirty-five years later, she
is still visiting annually with
her friend, Sharon Moss, who
has also been vacationing in
the Bahamas for more than
30 years.
Hyacinth Pratt, permanent
secretary in the Ministry of
Tourism and Aviation, met
with the women recently to
thank them for their lifelong
relationship with the islands


of the Bahamas. She present-
ed them with authentically
Bahamian gifts and certificates
of appreciation.
The women, who both teach
in the New York school sys-
tem, have visited the Bahamas
at least once each year for
more than 30 years.
For several years, they vis-
ited three times in one year.
"It used to be every time we
were on break, we were here,"
said Ms Simmons.
"When we weren't in
school, we were here in Nas-
sau."
The women made their lat-
est trip to Nassau this August
on a 10-day stay at the British
Colonial Hilton.

IN honour of Independence Day, and in an effort to promote
domestic tourism, Furniture Plus decided to send two customers,
plus one guest each, to the' country's "Pineapple Capital" for a
weekend of exploration and enjoyment.
First class Furniture Plus promotion winners Denise Feast of Nas-
sau and Nicole Holbert of Grand Bahama each won an all-expense
paid getaway for two to the Valentine's Resort in Harbour Island,
Eleuthera, with round-trip transportation provided by Regional Air
and Sky Bahamas, along with Bahamas Fast Ferries.
Customers who made a minimum purchase of $250 during the
month of July were eligible to enter the competition.
Coming out on top were Ms Feast and Ms Holbert.
"These ladies demonstrated their super sense of style and nation-
al pride by accentuating their respective homes with tasteful selec-
tions from Furniture Plus," the furniture store said in a press
release.
"Promotion sponsors Bahamas Fast Ferries, along with Region-
al Air and Sky Bahamas, will ensure that Denise, Nicole and their
guests are transported in total comfort and style to the pristine, pink
shores of Harbour Island. Upon arrival they will be welcomed at
Valentine's, the island's premier vacation resort, where they'll
experience the finest accommodations and highest level of ser-
vice provided at this world renowned yachter's paradise," Furniture
Plus said.
This year's "Eleuthera getaway" is the second installment in
the Furniture Plus "Island Hop Series", where lucky patrons enter
to win weekend getaways to locations across the Bahamas.
It is a continuing effort on the company's part to boost domestic
tourism and give more Bahamians a first-hand opportunity to
experience the beauty and bounty of the islands, Furniture Plus said.
There are several more island getaways planned exclusively for.
Furniture Plus customers for the remainder of the year. These
include trips to some of the tourism industry's "best kept secret"
island destinations.
' Furniture Plus was founded in December of 1988 by the late Paul
Patrick Tyrone d'Arville and his son, Troy T d'Arville.
Over the past 20 years, Furniture Plus has grown into one of the
Bahamas' leading furniture stores with a wide selection of furniture
that includes kitchen, bedroom, dining, and living room, as well as
home office furnishings and accessories.

PAIR FILL POSTS OF SECONDARY SCHOOL COORDINATOR AND MIDDLE SCHOOL COORDINATOR


Lucaya International School promotes two


Grand Bahama teachers to key positions


AS all schools prepare for
the new year, Lucaya Inter-
national School (LIS) will
open this Thursday with two
i well-known Grand Bahama
teachers promoted to key
positions.
Nigel Kirkby and Catherine
Hindley, who have both
taught in Grand Bahama for
many years, will now take on
the responsibilities of sec-
ondary school coordinator and
middle school coordinator
respectively.
Mr Kirkby began his
Bahamian teaching career at
St Andrew's International
School in Nassau in 1990,
L where he was a physical edu-
cation teacher until leaving
the island and moving to
Grand Bahama in 1996.
He transferred to the gov-
ernment system at Walter
Parker Primary for five years.
Mr Kirkby then went on to
teach at the Discovery School,
now renamed Bishop Michael
i Eldon, for two years until he
A joined the Lucaya Interna-
i1 tional School staff in 2004 as
11 the physical education teacher
and CAS coordinator.
"I am very pleased to have
been given this opportunity to
help continue the develop-
ment of the high school pro-
gramme," he said.
"I look forward to helping
provide and improve our first
class international education
with a Bahamian flavour."
Mr Kirkby will continue to


"I know that with the cooperation
and support of colleagues and
parents alike, the middle school
years at LIS will be rewarding as
we develop the curriculum and
provide new challenges for the
students in preparation for the
IGCSE and IB years in the high
school."

Catherine Hindley


teach physical education and
hopes to improve his school's
participation in the local
school sports programme,
which has so far netted the
school senior and junior soc-
cer championships and pri-
mary school runners up in
softball and soccer last year.
Mrs Hindley, who is well
known to many former stu-
dents in Grand Bahama will
now become the LIS middle
school coordinator.
She began her Bahamian
teaching career in the govern-
ment education system in 1984
at the West End All Age
School and then at the Eight
Mile Rock.High School where
she worked until 1995.
After three years at home
with her young children, Mrs
Hindley then joined the
Lucaya International School
as a founding member of staff


and has been part of the rapid
development of the school
over the years.
"I am looking forward to
the challenge of this new posi-
tion," said Mrs Hindley.
"I know that with the coop-
eration and support of col-
leagues and parents alike, the
middle school years at LIS will
be rewarding as we develop
the curriculum and provide
neW challenges for the stu-
dents in preparation fdr the
IGCSE and IB years in the
high school."
Mrs Hindley will be respon-
sible for the middle school
curriculum, assessment and
pastoral care for the students.
She will also coordinate after-
school clubs and CAS up to
year 11, which is an integral
part of the International Bac-
calaureate system.

ford noted "Mrs Hindley's in-

dents in her care will be a real.
asset in creating a supportive
environment for the students."
Lucaya International School
is coming off a very successful
year with 90 per cent of the
2008 IB class awarded the
prestigious IB Diploma.
This is an exceptional
achievement for a small school
and surpasses the average
international pass rate, which
was at 78 per cent.
The school is now concen-,
trating on the opening of the
International Baccalaureate


Study Centre. This 5,700-
square foot building will give
the school an additional six
classrooms, a study room, and
teacher's office, all on land
adjacent to the school.
"We are very excited about
this new school year," said Mr
Gifford.
"With both Mr Kirkby and
Mrs Hindley being able to
make a greater contribution
to the school and the success
of our IGCSE results we look
.forward to our school's
increasing growth in the high
school and IB levels."

Arctic sea ice drops
to the second lowest
level on record
* WASHINGTON
MORE ominous signs Wednes-
day have scientists saying that a
global warming "tipping point"
in the Arctic seems to ibe hap-
pening before their eyes: Sea ice
in the Arctic Ocean is at,its sec-
ond lowest level in about 30 years,
according to Associated Press.
The National Snow and Ice
Data Center reported that sea ice
in the Arctic now covers about
2.03 million square miles. The
lowest point since satellite mea-
surements began in 1979 was 1.65
million square miles set last Sep-
tember.
With about three weeks left in
the Arctic summer, this year
could wind up breaking that pre-
vious record, scientists said.
Arctic ice always melts in sum-
mer and refreezes in winter. But
over the years, more of the ice is
lost to the sea with less of it recov-
ered in winter. While ice reflects
the sun's heat, the open ocean
absorbs more heat and the melt-
ing accelerates warming in other
parts of the world.
Sea ice also serves as primary
habitat for threatened polar
bears.
"We could very well be in that
quick slide downward in terms of
passing a tipping point," said
senior scientist Mark Serreze at
the data center in Boulder, Colo.
"It's tipping now. We're seeing it
happen now."
Within "five to less than'10
years," the Arctic could be free of
sea ice in the summer, said
NASA ice scientist Jay Zwally.
"It also means that climate
warming is also coming larger and
faster than the models are pre-
dicting and nobody's really taken
into account that change yet," he
said.
Five climate scientists, four of
them specialists on the Arctic,
told The Associated Press that it
is fair to call what is happening in
the Arctic a "tipping point."
NASA scientist James Hansen,
who sounded the. alarm about
global warming 20 years ago
before Congress, said the sea ice
melt "is the best current exam-
ple" of that.
Last year was an unusual year
when wind currents and other
weather conditions coincided with
global warming to worsen sea ice
melt, Serreze said. Scientists won-
dered if.lasi year w.s an-unusual
evem or the starttf a new add
disturbing trend.

PMH morgue and

walk off the job


FROM page one

Union (BPSU) to resolve the
litany of complaints by Rand
Lab' employees.
Waving placards reading
- "Three months later,
Da' morgue not paid",
"Police cases done, Money
for morgue staff none" and
"Hazardous work deserves
hazardous pay" outside_
Princess Margaret Hospi-
tal's administration block
yesterday morning, the
frustrated morgue employ-
ees claimed they were wor-
ried about their health
because of mould growth,
poot ventilation and a leak-
ing roof in the Rand Lab.
They are also agitating for
the hospital administration
to approve a career path
proposal that was submit-
ted last year to allow job
advancement and salary
increases for qualified
workers.
"We need the money,
yes, but we need a better
working environment. How
can they expect us to do
these cases when the freez-
er (is too) small, the dis-
secting area is not big
enough for the number, of
cases we have and then the
environment itself, the air
is not clean. We need a new
building, we need to be
somewhere where we have
the space and ventilation
that is for our safety," a
morgue employee told The
Tribune.
John Pinder, head of the
Bahamas Public Service
Union (BPSU), which rep-
resents workers in both.
departments, said the
morgue staff feel "used"
and "misled" after broken
promises from hospital offi-
cials.,
"They felt as though
t they've been used and mis-
led, and as a result they're


now taking action. They've
been promised some com-
pensation for working in a
hazardous environment,
they were expecting it in
July and it didn't happen,
again in August when they
received their pay and they
didn't see that happening,"
Mr Pinder said outside
Princess Margaret Hospital
yesterday.
"In relation to the laun-
dry department, there is a
whole list of concerns that
were sent to PMH and to
the union to assist with
having some equipment
that needed to be repaired
to actually make the work-
ing environment more con-
ducive to productivity.
We're saddened that it
takes this kind of action for
them to immediately take
steps. They had installed
some equipment that was
necessary to run the laun-
dry department, but they
were not operational."
Mr Pinder said the dis-
gruntled staff would con-
tinue to strike until next
week if, need be.
"We will stay out here
until we are satisfied until
the matter has been prop+
early addressed. It could be
all day today, could be all
day tomorrow, it could be
next week. Sometime you
got to make sacrifices to
get the matters resolved.
Once the working environ-
ment is conducive to pro-.
ductivity, we will ask our
workers to return to work."
Mr Pinder said yester-
day's protest spurred hos-
pital staff to install some of
the equipment the laundry
department needs to per-
form their duties.
Public Health Authority
officials are expected to
meet on September 2 to
address outstanding staff
issues at the Rand Memor-
ial Lab. .

FROM page one
pany has reportedly offered some of the
staff the option of staying on until January
2009. However, some of the employees
that The Tribune stoke to yesterday were
hesitant to accept the company's offer,
claiming that there was "no guarantee"
that the casino would be open a month
from now let alone January of next
year.
Furthermore, this temporary employ-
ment, employees claimed, could be used
against them when the company finally
shuts down its casino operations as they
would theh not be required to pay them
their full severance packages.
"What we are saying is, why don't you


pay me my four per cent, give me my pack-
age, and let me cut ties with you. Then
you can hire me and pay me a weekly
salary for as long.as you intend to stay,"
said Mr Carrangton. Ennerman,-a-two --
year employee at the casino.
On Tuesday, staff at the casino were
given termination letters informing them
that their services would no longer be
required as of August 31, 2008.
The letter read: "In accordance with
your applicable provision of the Employ-
ment Act 2001, in addition to your final
pay cheque, the company will issue a sev-
erance cheque to you which will include
any monies fore-earned, unused vacation
time, an amount equal to one month
notice and one month basic pay for each
year you have been with the company.

Mother of seven


'attempts suicide'

FROM page one
up (to) get her breakfast for her."
She said her daughter was visibly distraught when the police
----arrived-and had to be-ripped from her arms to be-taken to-hospital:
The neighbour, who saved her daughter's life, had left the area for
work by the time a Tribune reporter arrived.
Ms Knowles said her daughter's children, ages five to 14, are all
in the care of the Department of Social Services with the exception
of the oldest who is incarcerated. Her daughter's last visit to see her
children brought the young mother to tears, Ms Knowles said.
The mother said that she and her daughter have a close rela-
tionship, and she continues to pray for a child who she feels fell in
with bad company.
"(Our relationship) is very, yery good. I used to send her to
Miami just about every year but she get in with (bad company) and
get on drugs. I pray for her all the time, she tellme pray for her and
I pray for her, and she still ain' change. She gone change after
today, I guess."
The Tribune attempted to obtain police confirmation of the inci-
dent, but Press Liaison Officer Assistant Supt Walter Evans said he
was not aware of the attempted suicide.
Up to press time last night, the condition of the victim was
unknown. This suicide attempt comes a week after 11-year-old
Devante McPhee of East Street was found by his grandmother
hanging from a clothesline with a rusty chair next to him.
His death prompted speculation that the young boy may have
been playing some sort of "hanging game" with two other boys.
So far, police have classified his death as accidental.

Ross University

lull speed ahead'
THE PORT Group Limit-.
ed (PGL) said that it is
delighted to see the progress
that Ross University has
made.
Ross University has, with-
in only a few weeks, been
able to obtain prices from
local Bahamian contractors
and has actually awarded the
contract for preparing their
facilities in order to receive
students beginning January
2009.
"The bidding method was
transparent and it is of course
to be appreciated that the
contractors invited were all
Bahamian. No doubt this will
be the beginning of .the
tremendous impact that the
establishment of Ross Uni-
: versity will have on the econ-
iomy of Grand Bahama
Island, and bodes well for the
future of our island," the
PGL said in a statement.
E Christiansen, chairman
of PGL said, "It has only
been a month since the
announcement of the Ross
University Bahamas Campus,
and so we are pleased to see
. that Ross is working aggres-
sively to complete its tempo-
rary campus for January
2009, and has drawn on the
pool of local Bahamian tal-
ent for this endeavour."

Dead Sea Scrolls to be displayed on Internet


* JERUSALEM
SCIENTISTS using American
space technology have started a
huge project to digitally photo-
graph the Dead Sea Scrolls, the
oldest known version of the
Hebrew Bible, and post it on the
Internet for all to see, Israeli
authorities said Wednesday,
according to Associated Press.
High-tech cameras using
infrared photography are being
used to uncover sections of the
2,000-year-old scrolls that have
faded over the centuries and
become indecipherable, the
Israeli Antiquities Authority said.
The project is expected to take
about five years and the goal is to
make the scrolls accessible to sci-
entists and the general public,
Antiquities Authority official
Pnina Shor said.
"Now for the first time the
scrolls will be a computer click


away," said Shor, who heads the
authority's department responsi-
ble for the conservation of arti-
facts. "This will ensure that the
scrolls are preserved for another
2,000 years."
Experts have complained for
years that only a small number
of scholars have been allowed
access to the scrolls and the thou-
sands of fragments that were
found in caves near the Dead Sea
in the late 1940s. In recent years,
steps have been taken to widen
access, but many of the findings
are still not properly identified
and categorized.
To protect the scrolls, Shor
said, the new imaging will be
done in a setting that minimizes
exposure to light.
A pilot project started
Wednesday and when it is fin-
ished, it will be possible to deter-
mine how long it will take to dig-
itize the thousands of fragments


from about 900 separate docu-
ments, Shor said, estimating five
years..
The American space connec-
tion came through Greg Bear-
man, who recently retired as prin-
cipal scientist for the NASA Jet
.Propulsion Laboratory. He
offered the space-age imaging
equipment.
"I am an archaeology buff," he


told The Associated Press, and
he brought imaging technology
used in space to the Dead Sea
Scrolls project. "This equipment
is used to study planets," he said.
"NASA uses the technology. for
imaging in space, and it works
here."
Infrared technology was used
to photograph all the findings in
1950, the Antiquities Authority


said, but technology has
advanced considerably since
then.(
The first scrolls were discov-
ered by accident in 1947 by a
young Bedouin shepherd who
was chasing a runaway sheep.
They were buried in a cave in
Qumran, just above the Dead
Sea one of the most barren
areas in the world.

A AlTri
Russi says--. '. "f


Georgian

attack negated

UN resolutions
* UNITED NATIONS
RUSSIA'S U.N. ambas-
sador said Tuesday he does-
n't think Russia's recogni-
tion of two separatist regions
in Georgia will lead to a new
Cold War though he predict-
ed a difficult period ahead
in relations with the West,
according to Associated
Press.
Vitaly Churkin said Geor-
gian President Mikhail
Saakashvili's attack on South
Ossetia created a "new real-
ity" that negated U.N. reso-
lutions guaranteeing the ter-
ritorial integrity of Georgia.
Moscow's announcement
earlier Tuesday that it was
recognizing the indepen-
dence of South Ossetia and
Abkhazia drew strong criti-
cism from Georgia, the Unit-
ed States and the European
Union. But Churkin said he
didn't think it would revive
the Cold War between the
former communist-controlled
Soviet Union and the capi-
talist West.
"I don't see it going that
way," Churkin said. "I'm
sure there's going to be a
rather difficult period in our
discussions."
"If it goes in the direction
of aggravating relations, it's
not going to be our choice,"
he said. "I want to remind
you that Cold War was a
completely different beast
when we were really at each
other's throats in a big way
internationally, and this is
not going to happen under
any circumstances."
Georgia's U.N. Ambas-
sador Irakli Alasania
accused Russia of engaging
in "territorial expansionist
policies" and ethnic cleans-
ing and said the recognition
"has no international legal
consequence."
"It will create new pres-
sures on the regional level
throughout the Caucasus and
further complicates interna-
tional affairs among the pow-
ers of the world," Alasania
said.
.. Moscow's recognition was
a stark demonstration of the
Kremlin's determination to
hold sway in lands where its
clout is jeopardized by
NATO expansion and grow-
ing Western influence.
Churkin opened a news
conference by reading a
statement from Russia's For-
eign Ministry explaining
President Dmitry Medvede-
v's decision to recognize the
independence of the two
provinces.
Asked later by a reporter
how Russia's recognition
squared with U.N. Security
Council resolutions reaf-
firming the territorial integri-
ty of Georgia, Churkin said:
"Their use of force against
South Ossetia clearly dashed
all of those previous resolu-
tions and created a com-
pletely new reality."
France's deputy U.N.
Ambassador Jean-Pierre
Lacroix countered that
"there is no way you can
dash or cancel or ... termi-
nate a resolution of the Secu-
rity Council by force."
Britain's U.N. Ambas-
sador John Sawers called
Russia's action "completely
unjustifiable" and a breach
of Moscow's commitments in
successive Security Council
resolutions and the six-point
European Union-brokered
'cease-fire, which calls for
political talks on South Osse-
tia.

POPPY CULTIVATION 'HAS DROPPED 19 PER CENT SINCE


2007'


UN says Afghanistan's opium




crop shrinks after record high


* By CARLOTTA GALL
c.2008 New York Times
News Service
KABUL, Afghanistan -
Afghanistan's opium harvest
has dropped from last year's
record high, the United.
Nations announced Tuesday,
contending that the tide of
opium that engulfed
Afghanistan, in ever rising
harvests since 2001 was final-
ly showing signs of ebbing.
"The opium floodwaters in
Afghanistan have started to
recede," Antonio Maria Cos-
ta, the executive director of
the U.N. Office on Drugs and
Crime, wrote in the foreword
to the 2008 edition of the
annual opium survey, pub-
lished Tuesday. "Afghan soci-
ety, has started to make
progress in'its fight against
opium," Costa added.
Poppy cultivation has
dropped by 19 percent since
2007, and has fallen beneath
2006 levels as well, the report,
said. The harvest is also
down, although by a lesser
margin because of greater
yields, dropping by 6 percent
to an estimated 8,500 tons.
More than half of
Afghanistan's provinces have
now been declared poppy
free that is, 18 of 34
provinces grow few or no
poppies, up from 13 poppy-
free provinces last year.-
The results, gathered by
the United Nations through
satellite imagery and checks
on the ground, are a success
for the Afghan government's
strategy of weaning farmers
from the illicit crop through
persuasion, incentives and
local leadership. A drought
in northern Afghanistan also
helped bring numbers' down,
although it has also increased
the hardship for farmers.
The report underscores a


ANTONIO MARIA COSTA, Executive Director of the United Nations Office on Drug and Crime (UNODC)., gestures to a map of Afghanistan during a joint
press conferencefwith Afghan minister of counter narcotics, Gen.I Khodaidad, unseen, in Kabul, Afghanistan, Tuesday, Aug 26, 2008. Afghan farm-
ers cultivated 19 percent fewer hectares of opium poppies this year than in 2007, a rare piece of good news fueled by successful anti-poppy campaigns

trend, first seen last year, in
which the stabler, better-
adrministered' provinces are
succeeding in curbing illicit
drug. production, according to
diplomats and government
officials. A swath of blue on a
U.N. map of Afghanistan,
stretching from the northeast
to the northwest, now
denotes a decrease in poppy
cultivation or, an absence of
it.
Two provinces that have
been large-scale poppy-pro-
ducing regions in the past,
Badakhshan in the northeast
and Nangarhar in the east,
have been declared poppy


free this year, a consequence
of effective local leadership
and the support of religious
leaders, elders and local
council members, Costa said,
at a news briefing in Kabul
on Tuesday evening.
Nevertheless, Afghanistan's
poppy crop still remains the
world's largest, a'nd now 98
percent of the crop is grown
in the lawless southern and
southwestern regions that are
in the grip of a virulent insur-
gency. Two-thirds of all opi-
um in Afghanistan in 2008
was grown in Helmand
Province, where the Taliban
control whole districts. Eight


thousand British troops work-
ing with government soldiers
have failed to make much
headway in curbing either
Taliban activities or the drug
industry.
"If Helmand were a couh-
try, it would once again be
.tAe world's biggest producer
of illicit drugs," Costa wrote.
The fact that poppy and
opium production is thriving
in areas where:the insurgency
is strongest shows the link
between drugs and conflict,
he said, contending that both
need to be dealt with at the
same time. The Taliban were
making up to $70 million a


year taxing poppy farmers,
and were collecting their
share of the estimated $3 bil-
lion made yearly by the drug
traffickers in Afghanistan, he
said.
Costa called on NATO, the
United States and the Afghan
military to destroy drug lab-
oratories, opium markets and
traffickers' convoys, without
harming the livelihoods of
struggling farmers. Poor
Afghans risk severe hunger
this year after bad harvests
and price increases, he said,
and should be assisted before
they are tempted to return to
poppy cultivation.

Clooney, Pitt arrive in



Venice for film festival


VENICE, Italy
GEORGE CLOONEY host-
ed a charity event Tuesday night
to raise money for victims in Dar-
fur.
Clooney, who's in Venice for
the premiere Wednesday at the
Venice Film Festival of the Coen
brothers' film "Burn After Read-
ing," swept past reporters as he
arrived for the fundraiser for his
Not On Our Watch charity,
i according to Associated Press.
The event was expected to
raise $2 million, said Manuele
Malenotti, the executive director
of the Italian clothing company
Belstaff, which sponsored the
event.
Not On Our Watch has raised
more than $7 million to help vic-
tims both of the humanitarian cri-
sis in the Darfur region of Sudan
and the cyclone in Myanmar,
according to executive director
klex Wagner.
The charity, which was started
ist year by Clooney, Brad Pitt
and some of their "Ocean's Thir-
teen" colleagues, uses their
celebrity appeal to bring atten-
tion to human rights abuses, but it
isn't so easy to get even two of
the founders together because of
filming and family demands,
Wagner conceded.
Pitt, who arrived in Venice ear-
lier with sons Maddox and Pax,
was expected at the event, but
hadn't arrived by the time cock-
tail hour was over.
He also appear in the Coen
brothers' film.
"Scheduling is very difficult.
Two of them happened to be in
Venice at the same time because
of the 'Burn After Reading' pre-
miere ... so there was a brain-
storming session," Wagner said
of the planned joint appearance.
Inside, Clooney was discussing
the issues and where the charity
puts its money at the fundraising
dinner on Venice's Giudecca
island, where 200 industry insiders

dren, Maddox, left, and Pax, right, in Venice, Italy for the 65th Venice
Film Festival, Tuesday Aug. 26 2008.


and Italian VIPs were slated to'
attend, Wagner said.
One recent grant by the group
was $500,000 in March to keep
helicopters and airplanes flying
aid into Darfur region of Sudan
- topping off a $1 million dona-
tion a year earlier for the same
program.
"We sent out a press release
one day saying we were on the
verge of closing it down and the
next day we had $500,000," said
Bettina Luescher, a spokes-
woman for the World Food Pro-
gram at U.N. headquarters in
New York. "They shine the light
on the real emergencies and step
up where we really need help."
Without that money, Luescher
said, the World Food Program
had been on the verge of shut-
ting down the air service to Dar-
fur, which brings 3,000 aid work-,


ers a month to the stricken region.
The U.N. food charity fed 3.3 mil-
lion people there last month.
The air service is critical given
deteriorating security, which
makes road convoys vulnerable.
Nearly 100 World Food Program
food trucks have been hijacked
this year.
Clooney has spoken for sever-
al years about the crisis in Darfur,
where more than 200,000 people
have been killed and about -2.5
million people displaced in three
years of fighting between African
rebels and government troops
allied with Arab militia known as
the janjaweed.
He went on a U.N. technical
mission including Darfur and
neighboring Chad in January,
sharing his impressions with
reporters upon his return to draw
attention to the crisis.

Nuns' beauty
pageant
canceled by
Italian priest
* ROME
AN ITALIAN priest
backtracked from his idea
to organize an online beauty
pageant for nuns, saying
Tuesday he had been mis-
understood and incurred the
protests of the faithful and
local religious authorities,
according to the Associated
Press.
The Rev. Antonio Rungi
had thought of the beauty
contest to give nuns more
visibility within the Catholic'
Church and to fight the
stereotype that they are all
old and dour. The "Miss Sis-
ter 2008" contest was sup-
posed to start in September
on a blog run by the priest,
who is a theologian.and
schoolteacher from the
Naples area.
But he changed his mind
after seeing reports that sug-
gested nuns would be
metaphorically put on a cat-
walk. He said what he had in
mind was not just external
beauty but what he called
"overall beauty."
"I wanted to make a blog
on vocations, one where
everybody could bring their
own experiences," Rungi
said by telephone from his
town of Mondragone, about
35 miles north of Naples. "I
wanted to create a showcase
for the pastoral experience
of nuns."
"Inste'ad, they made it
look like it was a catwalk a
la Miss Italy," he said. "I
have been misunderstood."
The reverend said attacks
against him, phone calls and
e-mails prompted him to
cancel the plan, as well as
reported unease of his reli-
gious superiors over the
idea.
Still, Rungi said he hopes
the idea can be revived in
the future, if he can bring
on board local religious
authorities.


Egypt septuplets stir




debate on fertility drugs


* ALEXANDRIA, Egypt
THE 27-YEAR-OLD woman and her
husband already had three children -
all girls. They badly wanted a boy, and
she had not conceived in five years, so
doctors gave her hormones, according to
the Associated Press.
The startling result was healthy sep-
tuplets four boys and three girls -
heralded by Egyptian doctors as a mir-
acle. But debate persists about the ethics
of fertility treatment in a nation where
medical oversight is lax, incubators and
neonatal respirators are rare, and many
families face pressure to have a son. '
In addition, Egypt faces concerns
about overpopulation and cheap fertil-
ity drugs could lead to a wave of multi-
ple births. President Hosni Mubarak
warned in June that growth is hindering
Egypt's economy, saying Egypt's popu-
lation of 79 million mostly crammed
into the 3 percent of the country's area
around the Nile River will double by
2050.
For the mother, Ghazala Khamis, the
most pressing question now is how her
impoverished family is going to get by.
"I'm really scared," she said, lying in
her hospital bed in this Mediterranean
coastal city. "We live in a mud hut with
only two rooms. I don't know how we're
going to afford 10 children now."
Khamis' husband Farag Mohammed
Ali, a 31-year-old farm laborer, can find
work only a few days a week, she said.
"I'm really worried about what the
future looks like."
Much about the Aug. 16 birth, by
Caesarean section, was stunning. The
babies are large for a multiple birth,
weighing between 3 pounds 3 ounces
and 4 pounds 10 ounces each. The dura-
tion of. the pregnancy was also the
longest ever for septuplets 34 weeks.
By contrast, the world's first surviving
septuplets, born to the McCaughey fam-
ily in Iowa in 1997, came at 31 weeks
and the biggest baby weighed about the
same as Khamis' smallest. There are
two other sets of surviving septuplets,
both born to Saudi women.
. Khamis' doctors waited so lohg to
deliver the babies because Egypt has
only a fewrrespifators for newborns, and
none were available. So for weeks, doc-
tors kept Khamis in Alexandria's Shat-

by Maternity University Hospital, let-
ting the fetuses develop enough that
their lungs could function on their own
after birth. But the wait also increased
the risk to the mother.
"We were simply blessed by God that
no complication happened ... If there
had been a complication, Ghazala would
have died," Dr. Mahmoud Meleis, who
performed the Caesarean section, told
The Associated Press.
After their birth, images on television
showed the boys Mohammad,
Kareem, Bilal and Yassin and girls -
Israa, Habiba and Do'a lying side-
by-side in two makeshift incubators, oxy-
gen hoods covering their heads. Four
were then whisked by ambulance to two
other hospitals because there were not
enough incubators at Shatby.
Except for the television images,
Khamis has not yet seen all her babies;
she has been able to hold and breast-
feed only the three at Shatby. Though
she was ready to leave days after the
birth, she remains hospitalized because
she has nowhere to stay in Alexandria, a
four-hour drive from her farming vil-
lage of Ezbat Emara.
Last week, baby girl Habiba and boys
Yassin and Mohammed were resting in
incubators at Shatby, tiny caps on their
heads red for the boys and lime green
. for the girl. All were breathing on their
own, though Habiba and Yassin wore
protective eye patches.
Some Western medical ethicists have
questioned the use of fertility drugs by a
young woman who already has three
children, considering the risk of multiple
births.
"This is a medical failure," said Guido
Pennings, a professor of fertility ethics at
the University of Ghent in Belgium.
"You cannot take this risk because of
the complications to the mother and the
babies."
Pennings, who was not involved in the
case, said Khamis' doctors should have
been more careful in prescribing fertili-
ty drugs to a woman who had already
demonstrated she was capable of con-
ceiving.
"Twenty-seven with three children:
That woman is fertile," he said. "Even if
she had a period of infertility, that's an
indication that you should be careful
when you stimulate" ov.ulation.

OBSTACLE



Hurricane recovery

confronts low literacy rate


* NEW ORLEANS

Marsha Williams had always
hesitated when mail arrived
from the government. After
Hurricane Katrina, she began
to fear the letters, according to
the Associated Press.
One warned that her apart-
ment building could be shut
down because of unrepaired
storm damage. There were legal
notices and forms. What did
they all mean? At age 51,
Williams was embarrassed she
could not read much more than
her own name and address.
Three years after Katrina,
residents of New Orleans are
still buried in a blizzard of gov-
ernment paperwork. But for
thousands of storm victims
seeking federal aid, the chal-
lengefis made more difficult by
a little-known obstacle: More
than 40 percent of the city's
adults lack the literacy skills to
comprehend basic government
forms. And recovery programs
have done little to ease the bur-
den.
"I didn't get a lot of school
when I was a child. I guess they
didn't have enough to go
around," said Williams, who is
learning to read in a YMCA
adult-education course.
Rachel B. Nicolosi, program
director for the Literacy
Alliance of Greater New
Orleans, estimates that as many
as 100,000 people from New
Orleans may have had assis-
tance delayed, or they never
applied for help at all, because
they could not read the docu-
ments.
"It's a paramount issue. The
rules are almost indecipherable
for everyone," said Davida Fin-
ger, a staff attorney for Loyola
University's New Orleans Col-
lege of Law, which has helped
1,000 people seek rebuilding
aid, nearly all of whom had
trouble understanding the

cratic failures and

a backstory to New

ery rooted in a broken
school system and the
legacy of segregation:

ninth-grade level and
over 40 percent cannot
comprehend basic
government forms.


forms.
Katrina destroyed 27 adult
literacy programs when it came
ashore in 2005. Only 13 pro-
grams survived, so Nicolosi and
others have asked for govern-
ment rebuilding agencies to
write aid forrrs in a "plain lan-
guage" format that is already
used for some federal health
and safety documents.
But some government offi-
cials say too much plain lan-
guage can leave out vital infor-
mation.
"I concede the point that
those who are functionally illit-
erate, they would have chal-
lenges with any form," said Bri-
an Sullivan, a spokesman for
the Department of Housing and
Urban Development. He said
the agency has trained all of its
37 staff members in New
Orleans to help "those with lit-
eracy disabilities."
The National Adult Literacy
Survey indicates that 25 percent
of U.S. adults read at the lowest
functional level, meaning, for
example, that they can locate
an expiration date on a driver's
license but cannot fill out most
motor-vehicle forms.
In New Orleans, that figure is
44 percent, according to the sur-
vey, which is performed every
decade and was last conducted
in 2003.
The cornerstone of neigh-
borhood rebuilding efforts is
the $10.3 billion Road Home
program, which asks partici-
pants to review dozens of doc-
uments and sign 18 final legal
papers before aid is approved.
One paragraph reads:
"Homeowner(s) agrees) to the
filing of certain covenants to
run with the land on the prop-
erty for which this Grant is
awarded requiring generally as
follows: flood insurance to be

Adirondack museum looks at legacy of opera soprano


* BOLTON LANDING, N.Y.

SHE HAD the voice of an
angel and used it to negotiate
fast notes with the skill of a
trained gymnast.
After retiring officially from
the opera world, legendary
soprano Marcella Sembrich
taught music lessons on her
lakefront property tucked away
among towering white pines in
the foothills of New York's
Adirondack Mountains.
Students came to her from
the Curtis Institute in Philadel-
phia and The Juilliard School.
Her teaching studio, a small
pink stucco house with huge
windows- overlooking Lake
,George, is now home to a
museum established by her
daughter-in-law, Juliette de
Coppet Stengel, two years after
she died in 1935.
It is one of only a handful of
museums in the U.S. dedicat-
ed to opera and doubles as a
venue for intimate music per-

formances. This year, which
marks Sembrich's 150th birth-
day and the 100th anniversary
of her farewell performance at
the New York Metropolitan
Opera, the Marcella Sembrich
Memorial Association will host
concerts, lectures and film
showings in her honor.
Recordings of Sembrich's
voice waft through the rooms of
the 1,400-square-foot teaching
cottage. Photographs and opera
programs combine to create a
sort of time capsule for visitors.
On display is the costume from
when she played Mimi in "La
Boheme," along with letters
between Sembrich and such
luminaries as Mark Twain,
Thomas Edison and Teddy
Roosevelt.
"It's a picture of the golden
age of song," said Richard War-
go, the museum's artistic direc-
tor and composer-in-residence.
Sembrich was born Prakse-
da Marcelina Kochanska in a
small Polish village in 1858. As


a child, she began studying
voice, piano and violin. She
took lessons with William Sten-
gel whom she ended up mar-
rying.
At 19, using a modified ver-
sion of her mother's maiden
name as her stage name, she
made her debut in Italian
opera in Athens, Greece,
singing "I Puritani."
Although she was an accom-
plished pianist and violinist,
she was renowned for her
voice.
When Sembrich performed
for Franz Liszt, singing and
playing the violin and piano,
the composer is said to have
told her, "Sing, sing for the
world. You have the voice of
an angel."
The museum sits on 4.5
acres of winding trails, offer-
ing scenic views of the Adiron-
dacks from its yearly opening
in June to its closing in Sep-
tember. As a performance
venme, it provides 'a small


chamber setting that seats
between 50 and 70 people.
Guest musicians perform on
Sembrich's original 1905 Stein-
way piano.
Sembrich came to the
upstate New York village after
the start of World War 1 pre-
vented her from.returning to
her summer home in the Swiss
Alps. She first bought a home
farther up in the Adirondacks
in Lake Placid.
In Bolton Landing some
years later, she helped estab-
lish somewhat of an artists
colony for singers. The home
of Flonzaley quartet founder
Edward J. de Coppet, daugh-
ter-in-law Juliette's father, was
nearby, and fellow opera
singer Louise Homer owned a
summer home in the neigh-
boring village of Lake George.
Sembrich's estate, Bay View,
once occupied a sprawling 14
acres but the house is now
gone and. only the studios
remain.

Israel to disi


dead sea


scrolls on the internet


* By ETHAN BRONNER
JERUSALEM
In a crowded laboratory
painted in gray and cooled like
a cave, half a dozen specialists
embarked this week on a his-
toric undertaking: digitally pho-
tographing every one of the
thousands of fragments of the
Dead Sea Srolls with the aim
of making i ihe entire file -
among the most sought-after
ald examined documents on
Earth available to all on the
Internet, reports the New York
Times News Service.
Equipped with high-powered
cameras with resolution and
clarity many times greater than
those of conventional models,
and with lights that emit nei-
ther heat nor. ultraviolet rays,
the scientists and technicians
are uncovering previously illeg-
ible sections and letters of the
scrolls, discoveries that could
have significant scholarly
impact.
The 2,000-year-old scrolls,
found in the late 1940s in caves
near the Dead Sea east of
Jerusalem, contain the earliest
known copies of every book of
the Hebrew Bible (missing only
the Book of Esther), as well as
apocryphal texts and descrip-
tions of rituals of a Jewish sect
at the time of Jesus. The texts,
most of them on parchment but
some on papyrus, date from the
third century B.C. to the first
century A.D.
Only a handful of the scrolls
exist in large pieces, with sever-


"The project began as a
conservation necessity. We wanted
to monitor the deterioration of the
scrolls and realized we needed to
take precise photographs to watch
the process."


Pnina Shor


al on permanent exhibit at the
Israel Museum here in its dimly
lighted Shrine of the Book.
Most of what was found is sep-
arated into 15,000 fragments
that make up about 900 docu-
ments, fueling a longstanding
debate on how to order the
fragments as well as the origin,
and meaning of what is written
on them.
The scrolls' contemporary
.history has been something of a
tortured one because they are
among the most important
sources of information on Jew-
ish and early Christian life.
After their initial discovery they
were tightly held by a small cir-
cle of scholars. In the last 20
years, access has improved sig-
nificantly, and in 2001 they were
published in their entirety. But
debate over them seems only
to grow.
Scholars continually ask the
Israel Antiquities Authority, the
custodian of the scrolls, for
access to them, and museums

around the world seek to dis-
play them. Next month,the Jew-
ish Museum of New York will
begin an exhibition of six of the
scrolls.
The keepers of the scrolls,
people like Pnina Shor, head of
the conservation department of
the antiquities authority, are
delighted by the intense interest
but say that each time a scroll is
exposed to light, humidity and
heat, it deteriorates. She says
even without such exposure
there is deterioration because
of the ink used on some of the
scrolls as well as the residue
from the Scotch tape used by
the 1950s scholars in piecing
together fragments.
The entire collection was *
photographed only once before
- in the 1950s using infrared
- and those photographs are
stored in a climate-controlled
room because they show things
already lost from some of the
scrolls. The old infrared pictures
will also be scanned in the new
digital effort.
"The project began as a con-
servation necessity," Shor
explained.
"We wanted to monitor the
deterioration of the scrolls and
realized we needed to take pre-
cise photographs to watch the
process. -
"That's when we decided to
do a comprehensive set of pho-
tos, both in color and infrared,
to monitor selectively what is
happening. We realized then r
that we could make the entire >
set of pictures available online
to everyone, meaning that any-
one will be able to see the
scrolls in the kind of detail that
no one has until now."
The process will probably ''
take one to two years more
before it is available online -
and is being led by Greg Bear-
man, who retired from the Jet
Propulsion Laboratory. Data
collection is directed by Simon
Tanner of Kings College Lon-
don. '
Jonathan Ben-Dov, a profes-
sor of biblical studies at the Uni-
versity of Haifa, is taking part in
the digitalization project.
Watching the technicians gin-
gerly move'a fragment into
place for a photograph, he said
that it had long been very 0liffi-
cult for senior scholars to get
access.
Once this project is complet-
ed, he said with wonder, "every
undergraduate will be able to
have a detailed look at them
from numerous angles."

Lifting the veil on AIDS



in a Mexican prison


* By MARC LACEY
MEXICO CITY
Officially, there is no sex
among the male inmates at the
overcrowded Oriente prison on
the outskirts of the Mexican
capital, according to the New
York Times News Service. The
only sexual relations in the male
portion of the facility, adminis-
trators say, occur in the special
rooms set aside for male-female
conjugal visits.
But talk to the prisoners, a
group of 11,300 convicted rob-
bers, murderers and others who
have run afoul of the law, and
another reality emerges.
"We are a population of men,
and it's normal for men to have
sex with whoever is around,"
said Guillermo, 32, a prisoner
and peer educator who has
HIV, the virus that causes
AIDS. "There are some who
don't want to see it."
Even though scientific sur-
veys of AIDS rates in Mexican
prisons do not exist, the myths
associated with the epidemic
are pronounced among prison-
ers, and the sex that takes place
is frequently unsafe, advocates
say. The risk is significant
enough that an American orga-
nization, Population Services
International, has set up an
AIDS awareness program
inside this and four other Mex-
ican lockups. Facts about the
disease are so scarce, said Ricar-
do Roman Vergara, who helps
run the training sessions, that
some inmates think HIV is
spread by mosquitoes, kisses or
shared toothbrushes.
Just getting access to the pris-
ons was no easy feat, since
prison authorities are hesitant
to acknowledge a problem.
Official figures put the number
of HIV-positive inmates in the
capital's prisons at 62, six of
them women and the rest men.
But no widespread testing of
the tens of thousands of inmates
takes place, so the figure is con-
sidered by experts to substan-
tially understate the danger.
In the case of the Reclusorio
Preventive Oriente, a rough
place that is one of the largest


"We are a
population of
men, and it's
normal for men
to have sex with
whoever is
around."

Guillermo
prisons in Latin America, the
warden, Ruben Fernandez
Lima, allowed the awareness
sessions here despite playing
down the extent of infections.
"I don't know the level of
HIV in this prison," he said dur-
ing a tour that coincided with
the 17th International AIDS
Conference, which was held in
Mexico City in early August. "I
think it's minimal. It's almost
nothing."
.But the chances of acquiring
the virus inside prison walls are
many, as a group of prisoners,
all dressed in khaki, learned this
month during an education ses-
sion in a community room here.
There are the syringes used
to inject drugs, another activity
that prison authorities play
down. There are the needles
that prison tattoo artists employ
to mark up the inmates or
pierce their bodies. Then there
is sex that occurs in and out of
the designated visita intima"
areas, some of it with prosti-
tutes, both male and female,
who ply their trade within the
prison walls. V
Indeed, all sorts of supposed-
ly banned activities take place in
Mexico's prisons, much of it,
experts say, the result of bribes
being slipped to underpaid
guards. During the tour, a pris-
oner was observed talking on a
cell phone, which is banned in
penitentiaries nationwide
because of a history of crime
bosses continuing their illegal
activities while in detention.
Oriente frequently finds itself
on the front pages of Mexico's
newspapers. It was where Jose
Luis Calva Zepeda, a presumed


serial killer who ate his victims
and then wrote poems about
them, was sent last year. The
so-called Cannibal Poet was lat-
er found hanged in his cell. The
suspicious circumstances of the
death prompted a shakeup in
the prison leadership.
Then in July, a notorious drug
trafficker managed to slip out
of the prison, spurring an inves-
tigation into whether prison
authorities, including the war-
den, might have given him priv-
ileges that aided his escape.
The trafficker, Luis Gonzaga
Castro Flores, was apparently
allowed to have several women
pay him conjugal visits. He used
one such liaison to change
clothes in the visitors' area and.
make his escape, authorities say.
The tightest ship appeared to
be run in a part of the prison
set aside for drug addicts. To
wean them off their addictions,
mostly to crack cocaine, prison
officials require the addicts to
engage in military-style march-
es and ban them from having
outside visitors, who are some-
times of the source of contra-
band. Visitors to the prison are
told not to wear khaki, so as not
to be mistaken for a prisoner.
Upon entering, visitors are giv-
en a quick body search, and a.
special ink is put on their hands
to differentiate them from
inmates.
Guillermo, a convicted rob-
ber who for his safety asked that
his last name not be published,
said most of those he counsels
in the prison are hesitant to dis-
cuss their sexual partners when
he first approaches them. But
because he is open about the
fact that he is bisexual, he said
prisoners soon begin talking.
"In a place like this, the vul-
nerability of getting HIV is very
high," he said. One of those
who praised the outreach effort
was Hector, 32, who was
halfway through a six-year sen-
tence for robbery. He has a wife
and children on the outside and
male sexual partners on the
inside. "I don't know if I have it
or not," he said of the virus. "I
do it withoutt condoms, but I'm
learning now that I shouldn't."

Unionist: 'Let

chips fall where

they may' over

illegal actions
N By NEIL HARTNELL,
Tribune Business
Editor'
A LEADING trade
unionist has urged that pub-
lic sector unions "be held to
the same standard" as their
private sector counterparts
when it came to illegal indus-
trial actions, adding: "Let the
chips fall where they may".
Huedley Moss, the chief
negotiator/adviser to the
Bahamas Beverage and
Water Distributors Union,
told Tribune Business that
there appeared to be a dou-
ble standard in play when it
came to punishing union
members for engaging in ille-
gal industrial actions, with
public sector unions seem-
ingly getting off 'scot free'
unlike their private sector
counterparts.
Advocating that "there
must be consequences for
illegal industrial actions", Mr
Moss argued that the
Bahamas did not need any
new laws to deal with such
situations, but rather must
"enforce the laws that are
there".
Acknowledging that in his
opinion the recent actions by
the two Bahamas Telecom-
munications Company
(BTC) unions were an illegal
industrial strike, Mr Moss
said: "Successive govern-
ments seem impotent to do
anything about public sector
unions not being held to the
3ame high standards as pri-
vate sector unions.
"The laws that we have on
the books in the Industrial
Relations Act, the laws con-
tained in the Employment
Act, aren't just for one cate-
gory of workers. They are
for all workers in both the
public sector and the private
sector."
Mr Moss added: "One of
the weaknesses we have in
the system in this country is
that over the years it seems
to me that politicians were
reluctant to chastise unions
that engaged in illegal indus-
trial actions.
"They have done that for
selfish reasons, mainly that
they were looking out for
their own political careers.
They have a duty to be con-
cerned about the needs of all
Bahamians, not just one cat-
egory of Bahamians.
"The same standards that
apply to private sector
unions must be applied to

Tribune Business Editor
BAHAMAS Supermarkets
chief executive yesterday said
he was targeting 2010 as the
year in which the company
would surpass previous annual
profit records of $7-$8 million,
with "failure not an option" in
efforts to get the 12-store
supermarket chain "back on
track".
Stephen Boyle told Tribune
Business that the City Markets
chain was "not completely out
of the woods" on the cash flow
problems that have plagued
the company over its past two
financial years, but it was now
focused on fiscal 2009 and
"working on delivery of a very
detailed business plan".
He explained that while City
.Markets was generating posi-
tive cash flow from its opera-
tions, much of this was being
eaten up by costs associated
with completing the fiscal 2007
and 2008 audits, and rebuilding
the chain's back office and
accounting systems.
"Are we completely out of
the woods [on cash flow]? No.
Are we generating cash flow
from operations? Yes," Mr
Boyle told Tribune Business.
"Unfortunately, the remedi-
ation we had to undertake to
bring 2007 to a close and get
2008 up to date is expensive.
"The cash generated from
operations is being invested on
getting reporting back on track,
and getting the finance and
accounting, departments back
on track. You can't run a busi-
ness without numbers, which
is why it's an investment, not
an expense. This is why it's
consuming all our cash."
Analysts and shareholders
largely reacted with disap-
pointment to the publication
of Bahamas Supermarkets'
long-awaited 2007 financial,
which were reported by Tri-
bune Business yesterday.

lier this week more than a year

retailers were grouping togeth-
er to write a letter to the Gov-
ernment, Mrs Thompson told


Tribune Business: "It has been
the case that the Bahamas is
not competitive in many areas
of the retail business.
"All we have to do is look at
how many people go to Flori-
da to shop. They go there for
price, but also for variety and
choice. The fact we are not
competitive has been the case
for quite some time, and is
related to escalating costs
across the board."

Attorney seeking




US action against




shipping owners


* By CARA
BRENNEN-BETHEL
Tribune Business
Reporter
THE attorney representing
former Pioneer Shipping
employees has applied to the
Supreme Court for permission
to file an action against the
company's owners in the US,
after it allegedly dissolved and
liquidated its Bahamian assets.
Obie Ferguson, who repre-
sents the terminated employ-
ees, told Tribune Business he
had made an application for
leave to the Bahamian
Supreme Court so that that he
could file a writ of summons
outside the jurisdiction in this
case, in Florida.
This essentially means that
Mr Ferguson will be going
after the company's US assets,
since all the Bahamian assets
have allegedly been taken out
of the jurisdiction.
Mr Ferguson said in asking
for leave, he will argue about
the need for urgency in reach-
ing a settlement, given that
many of his clients have been


unable to find replacement
jobs. Some have what he
termed "catastrophic" medical
conditions, and no longer
have medical insurance cover-
age.
Mr Ferguson explained that
the Supreme Court applica-
tion process will take several
weeks. If it is successful, he
will then file the necessary
documents in Florida, and Pio-
neer executives could be
ordered to appear in Nassau
because the events complained
of occurred in this jurisdiction.
Pioneer Shipping's business
was taken over by a partner-
ship between Laser Interna-
tional Freight Transport and
the Nassau-based Mailboat
Company earlier this summer.
The employees are upset at
the way their termination Was
handled, given the fact that
they were not. given any sev-
erance packages and lost much
needed medical coverage.
The employees said that
they had been given letters.
from Pioneer Shipping presi-
dent, Arthur Thompson, stat-
ing that they were owed two
weeks salary and two weeks'
vacation pay for each year of
service.
However, they claimed that
the letter was not legally bind-
ing and made no commitment
as to when the money will be
paid.
The employees said they
were told that payments would
begin when the company's
dockyard and other properties
on Bay Street were sold. The
four-acre site has been given a
$22 million appraisal value.

School surge

By CARA BRENNEN-BETHEL
Tribune Business Reporter
WITH just one week left before students return to
school, Bahamian retailers are reporting a surge in busi-
ness as parents move to ensure their children have every-
thing they need.
Despite what has been a slow retail season, school sup-
pliers told Tribune. -Business that back-to-school items are
a necessity and will always sell.
Susan Glinton, a buyer for Kelly's Home Centre, said
sales were going very well with their back-to-school
items.
She said business appears comparable to last year's
back-to-school rush, although she added that she had not
seen all the figures as yet. Ms Glinton said sales were
likely to continue as the final week of summer comes to
an end.
"Our sales have been steady" she said.
Arnelle Cooper, the spokeswoman for Solomon's
SuperCentre said: Sales have been going very well. We
are aware of what has been going on in the economy, and
the fact that a number of persons have lost their jobs and
are financially challenged. We have tried to accommo-
date them by securing items at the best prices and quality
that are affordable."

Sales
She said that while sales appear to be on track to match
last year, the determine factor will be this weekend, in
the final push before school starts.
"This weekend will be probably be our biggest week-
end, and then we will be able to determine exactly where
we stand in relation to last year's sales," Ms Cooper said.
According to Crystal Barry, an employee at Shayne's,
business has been "sky high."
"We have been very busy. We are selling everything
from underwear and socks to school bags and pencil cas-
es;" she said.
One employee at another book store, who did not want
to be named, added. "We are always busy this time of'
year. Even if people go off to buy things, they still don't
always get everything and so they have to shop here.
School things are a necessity."
Ms Demeritte, at the Shoe Depot, noted that sales are
going well.
"One thing that we are actually seeing is that children
are wanting to spend more. They want the name brands.
like Clark's, and so that is what they are getting. I would
say that business has basically been very good and seems
to be the same as last year."

own Association


* By CARA
BRENNEN-BETHEL
Tribune Business Reporter
BAHAMIAN landscaping
companies are planning to organ-
ise themselves into a Bahamian
Landscape Association (BLA),
Tribune Business was told yes--
terday, in an effort to raise service
standards and increase career
opportunities.
Landscaping companies and
professionals have been invited
to participate in an information
session on the benefits of estab-
lishing such an association on
September 4, at the Atlantis Con-
vention Centre.
The association organizers said
in a letter to industry profession-
als that they will be seeking to.
align themselves with the Florida
Nursery. Growers & Landscape
Association (FNGLA), in what


will be an industry milestone.
"It was determined that the
FNGLA was more appropriate
for the BLA, because its respon-
sibility covers the Florida region,
which has many similarities with
the region of the Bahamas," the
letter said.
"Understanding our quest to
raise the standard of professional
services in the Bahamas, the
FNGLA has fully supported and
ratified the BLA as an official
Allied Member, with future con-
siderations to upgrade its status as
a chapter. Thus all of the
resources that were once only
obtainable in Florida will be avail-
able here in the Bahamas to all
those who choose to become a
member of the BLA."
The organisets further indicat-
ed that once the BLA is official-
ly established, with assistance
from the FNGLA and other

FNGLA-approved industry part-
ners, certification courses will be
offered to all interested parties.
"All certification courses
offered by the BLA will continu-
ally be available here in the
Bahamas. The establishment of
the BLA with internationally
recognized certification will be a
mile stone in our industry," the
letter said.
It further maintained that cer-
tification and continued educa-
tional units (CEU) will strength-
en the ongoing dedication the
BLA membership had in contin-
ued education, and stand as a tes-
tament to the individuals and
businesses that attain certifica-
tion.
"Individuals and businesses
alike may boast and advertise
these accomplishments across the
Bahamas, Caribbean and the
USA," the letter added.
Over the years, the letter said
the industry had exploded, with
new landscape companies offer-
.ing a variety of services to cus-
tomers ranging from landscape
installation. maintenance, pest
management, irrigation services,
arboriculture and nurseries.
"For many years we have all
at some point endeavored to
improve our business and profes-
siorial status. Many of us have
explored and pursued avenues to
achieve this by way of attending
seminars, short courses in our
individual fields and trying to
align ourselves with organizations
or associations that have the
resources to help us achieve our
goals," the letter said.
"As professionals in the indus-
try, we will all be a part of this
historic international project that
will afford us the ability to raise
the standards of the industry, and
cause our customers to develop a
greater sense of trust in our abil-
ity to offer professional and qual-
ity services."
The letter added that the asso-
ciation can begin to strengthen
the integrity of the,industry and
create a means to attract well-
educated high school graduates,
secondary school graduates and
other interested parties to ensure


the growth of the industry.
"This will also provide alterna-
tive career options and will create
a pool of talent for businesses to
choose from," it said.
The letter also explained that
the Bahamas Technical and
Vocational Institute (BTVI) and
the Daytona Beach Community
College have agreed to support
the move, facilitating the train-
ing of existing professionals and
all new interested parties by way
of the BTVI training facility, long-
term instructors and marketing.
The BTVI & Ministry of Edu-
cation have agreed to support the
BLA, and are exploring ways to
provide continued education'to
students who may wish to go on
to COB or other colleges to pur-
sue higher levels of education in
the green industry, like a BA in
Landscape Design or a Masters in
Horticulture.
Initial training for certifications
will be done in conjunction with
FNGLA -ertified instructors and
professionals from the Bahamas,
who will also become certified
instructors.

Rolle (Kerzner International);

scaping); Earl Deveaux (Ministry

Mrs Thompson pointed to
the fact that electricity in the

$0.45 per kilowatt hour, a cost

Vancouver, where energy cost

The 2008-2009 Budget tax
increases could not have come

enue, and a rise in costs asso-
ciated with purchasing Euro-
pean brands.
The latter phenomenon has
occurred because of the euro's
relative strength against the
US dollar, as Bahamian retail-
ers have to pay for European-
made brands with euros. The
appreciating euro means these
prices have increased.
Mrs Thompson said: "We're


trying to adjust our operations,
and are taking all the steps we
can. Our margins are down
below what is likely to make a
profit.
"We have to cut overheads
to a minimum and operate in a
very conservative way, giving
good value for money. If your
sales and prices don't give you
the margins you need, you'll
go out of business. When sales
drop, so do margins."
Mrs Thompson said the 5
per cent duty increase on all
leather goods imported into
the Bahamas was not levied
just on the price of the prod-
uct, but also on the freight
costs adding to thealready
high cost of shipping.
Many Bay Street retailers
are worried that the Budget
tax increases, a portion of
which they are likely to pass
on to consumers, will make
them even more uncompeti-
tive when compared to rival
retailers in Florida, the
Caribbean and on the cruise
ships. Many rely on the tourist
trade for 80 per cent and
upwards of their sales.

"I don't know the dollar.
effect, but if you add this 5 per
cent on to the Cost of Import-
ed Freight (CIF) the duty,
the freight and the insurance -
we cannot compete on price."
This was placing Bahamian
retailers at a disadvantage
when competing for the tourist
business, Mrs Thompson said,
using her own Fendi store as
an example. She explained
that American customers were
extremely savvy, and com-
pared her prices to those avail-.
able on the Internet and at
Fendi stores.in the US.
She pointed out, though,


that while the Bahamian taxa-
tion system had been around
for many years, it was
"unique" in basing its tariff
rates on the CIF bill, rather
than just the product price.
"Every retailer right now on
Bay Street is trying to figure
out how to maintain their
property and what they
can sell to tourists," Mrs
Thompson told Tribune Busi-
ness.
"The price advantage is
gone, and Bay Street is not a
shopping experience. Things
have changed slowly over
time. The recent Budget is a
double whammy in an already
tough market."

Unionist: 'Let chips

over illegal actions

FROM page one

public sector unions, and the powers that be need to stop turning
a deaf ear and stop pandering to union leaders."
BTC union leaders have defended their actions, and those of
their members, and said they were not participating in an illegal
industrial action.
Yet Mr Moss said of the BTC strike's impact: "I think it is
awful, it is hurting the country and let the chips fall where they
may.
"There must be consequences for illegal industrial actions.
They walk off the job, shut things down and there are no conse-
quences. The powers that be don't have the wherewithal to take
action.
"The private sector union leaders know there are consequences
for these types of things. It is hurting the country, sending the
wrong example to kids and sending the wrong message to current
and future investors."
Mr Moss said that under existing Bahamian law, if a
union engaged in illegal industrial action, an employer was
free to treat all union members that participated "as they see
fit".
For example, under the Employment Act's provisions, an
employer could summarily dismiss workers for taking part in
an illegal industrial action. If they were summarily dismissed, the
workers would not be entitled to receive severance pay.
Such laws, Mr Moss suggested, could be used to "send a good
message" that, if transmitted often enough, would deter workers
from engaging in illegal industrial actions.
"We don't need any new laws," he told Tribune Business, dis-
agreeing with the Bahamas Employers Confederation's (BECon)
president, Brian Nutt, on that issue.
"We have laws on the books, and all we have to do is enforce
the laws that are there. If all unions are not held to the same stan-
dard, the Bahamas can expect many more illegal industrial
actions."
Mr Moss also disagreed with Mr Nutt over the recent industrial
action taken by members of the Bahamas Manufacturing and
Allied Workers Union (BIMAWU), arguing that it was legal as
defined by Chapter 321 of the Industrial Relations Act.
He added that this was because the union had filed its dispute
with the Department of Labour, and the minister responsible had
supervised a strike vote by the union's members.

BEC targets 10%

renewable power

generation goals


FROM page one

proposals from established
renewable energy providers in
four key fields solar, wind,
hydrokinetic (wave and ocean)
and biomass.
"The RFP document says
we're going to look at a maxi-
mum of 10 per cent of genera-
tion capacity on any island"
coming from renewable ener-
gy sources, Mr Elliott told Tri-
bune Business.
"We've got a whole lot of
interest, both locally and inter-
nationally. We think we're
going to get a lot of responses
in that regard. We look forward
to receiving the responses by
September 12 and evaluating
them."
Mr Elliott said the Bahamas
could not afford to get left
behind as the world moved
towards renewable energy and
away from more traditional
forms of electricity generation,
such as coal, oil and nuclear.
"As far as the Bahamas is
concerned, the world is mov-
ing on towards renewable ener-
gy," Mr Elliott said. "We have
to be a player, no matter how
minimal it is.
"If there is a shift away from
traditional forms of generation,
we can't be the last person in
line. We have to be a player in
that regard."
He added that it was "very
important" that the Bahamas.
embrace the shift towards
renewable energy, especially
given the impact soaring oil'
prices were having on BEC's
fuel costs and financial position
and, in turn, the fuel surcharge
and electricity bills faced by
business and.residential con-
sumers.
Both BEC's chairman, Fred
Gottlieb, and general manag-
er, Kevin Basden, were fully
behind the shift towards sus-
tainable power generation, Mr
Elliott said.
"Our chairman and general
manager are extremely com-
mitted to the process. They are
both very interested in seeing it
go, and expect within the next
year to see some real move-
ment on it," Mr Elliott said.
Tribune Business under-
stands that at least two biomass


ited impact.
"Prime Minister, we should
note that outside of payroll
costs, energy costs are the
largest expense to hotel opera-
tors."
Mr Miller added: "The AES


LNG project must be viewed
as part of a broader strategy by
the Bahamas aimed at making
us more energy efficient, chang-
ing our consurhption habits and
aggressively pursuing alterna-
tive renewable energy sources.
Only then will we realise sig-
nificant savings."
AES previously told Tribune
Business that BEC could save
' between $1.4 billion to $4 bil-,
lion in fuel costs, or between
$80 million-$210 million per
annum, depending on future oil
prices.


proposals, involving the gener-
ation of energy from waste, are
likely to be submitted in
response to the BEC RFP,
along with submissions on solar,
wind and hydrokinetic genera-
tion.
Meanwhile, the Bahamas
Hotel Association (BHA) has
thrown its backing behind the
AES Corporation proposal to
supply BEC with liquefied nat-
ural gas (LNG) from its Ocean
Cay terminal, believing this
could result in a 15-30 per cent
reduction in fuel surcharge
costs for business and residen-
tial customers.
In an August 1,2008, letter to
Prime Minister Hubert Ingra-
ham, the BHA president, Rus-
sell Miller, said that based upon
the presentation given by AES,
"we understand that this
arrangement could result in the
range of a 15 per cent to 30 per
cent reduction in fuel surcharge
costs to BEC customers on
New Providence, based upon
current market conditions. The
savings would be considerable".
Given that "the escalation of
energy costs has created
tremendous economic pres-
sures on businesses and resi-
dents", Mr Miller said the BHA
endorsed the AES project "in
principle".-
While the BHA was unable
to determine the environmental
impact of the.proposed AES
project, Mr Miller pointed out
that responsibility in this area
lay with the Government and
developer.
"However, it is clear that the
conversion to natural gas by
BEC will significantly reduce
our present level of carbon
emissions," Mr Miller said.
"We are confident that any
environmental concerns with
this proposal can be adequate-
ly addressed, and that the ben-
efits to businesses and residents
far outweigh any potential lim-

City Markets chief targets



2010 for record profits


FROM page one

far from smooth, with City
Markets suffering an $8 mil-
lion-plus swing into the red and
a $189,130 loss. There was zero
cash on the company's balance
sheet at 2007 year-end.
The 2006 year-end had seen
$9.234 million left in cash on
the balance sheet, but Mr
Boyle said the last two finan-
cial years had seen some $18
million in cash flow out of
Bahamas Supermarkets.
That figure included some
$5.8 million in dividends until
those payments were suspend-
ed by the Bahamas Supermar-
kets Board.
"The total across the two
years of cash going out of the
business is $18 million," Mr
Boyle said. "There was an
awful lot spend on capital
expenditure, leasehold
improvements, dividends and
the Cable Beach store. There
was an awful lot of outflow."
Looking to put the past
behind City Markets and focus
on the future, Mr Boyle said:
"What I have agreed as chief
executive is to complete the
first quarter [2009], and based
on the first quarter results,
reforecast for the year. That's
what I'll be held accountable
for.
"I'm positive the work done
in the last part of 2008 and cur-
rently will be very good for tl4e
future. I'm certainly looking
during my tenure to pass pre-
vious levels of profitability.
"My initial tenure is for two
years, so that tells you by 2010


we'll hopefully have passed the
levels achieved in the past."
Several analysts and capital
markets sources yesterday
questioned the sale and lease-
back agreement, involving $3
million worth of store improve-
ments and equipment, that
Bahamas Supermarkets had
signed with its employees' pen-
sion plan.
A number questioned
whether this was effectively
using employee pension assets
to provide the supermarket
chain with working capital,
something several said was not
done in countries with effec-
tive pension legislation unlike
the Bahamas.
However, Mr Boyle said:
"The bottom line is this. The
pension fund was earning 3 per
cent on those funds. It's now
earning 9 per cent. We've
tripled the rate of return for
the pension fund.
"While there may be some
individuals who are concerned,
there is nothing to be con-
cerned about. We are going to
generate additional funds for
the pension fund, and as the
stakeholders are all our
employees, they will benefit,
too./
"The [pension fund's] cash
has not been utilised properly
in the past. We believe we have
done a good thing, and the
right thing, for the employees
and their future.
"Our head office is owned
by the plan. It isn't uncommon,
its is custom and practice, for
,the company to lease assets
from it."

At year-end 2007, Bahamas
Supermarkets saw a more than
doubling in accounts payables
to $13.654 million a 133.7 per
cent increase compared to
$5.841 million at the previous
year end. Inventories, too, had
risen to $14.256 million com-
pared to $12.927 million the
year before.
Mr Boyle said City Markets
was focused on better manag-
ing its inventory, using prac-.
tices such as shipping from the
US crates containing six weeks'
worth of product for two items,
rather than one crate contain-
ing 12 weeks' worth of one
product.
"Our.inventory turns at
year-end 20o8 were as good as,
or better, than international
standards," Mr Boyle said.
"One of the first exercises I
did after becoming chief exec-
utive in May 2008 was to actu-
ally look at our inventory lev-
els, put some international
benchmarks against them and
work to reduce the level we
have. Our accounts payable is
back to where it should be."
Mr Boyle said the fiscal 2008
audit of Bahamas Superrmar-
kets was currently underway,
and the company intended to
meet the statutory reporting
deadline of October 23.
"While there has to be learn-
ing from the past, my job is to
focus on the future and ensure
fiscal 2009 is where it needs to
be," Mr Boyle said. "All of my
planning has been for 2009.
"The 2008 audit is underway.
It's been all-consuming. If you
can imagine the amount of


effort from May, when I took
over, to close 2007 and get
2008 to the point where it can
be audited, the effort has been
all-consuming.
"We've very focused on clos-
ing 2008, how it is, what the
results are and getting the com-
pany back to where it needs to
be.
"Failure is not an option, and
we are proceeding against a
very detailed business plan that
we have put in place. We are
working on delivery."
As revealed previously by
Tribune Business, the main
factor behind the 2007 audit
delay was that KPMG was.
forced to manually verify hun-
dreds of point-of-sale transac-
tions after no replacement
accounting systems were
installed to replace those pro-
vided by Winn-Dixie, whose
Transition Services Agreement
was ended early.
The problems at Bahamas
Supermarkets led Royal Bank
of Canada, which provided $24
million in debt financing to
finance BSL Holdings' $54 mil-
lion purchase of a majority 78
per cent stake in the compa-
ny, to work more closely with
the borrower in sorting out the
company's problems.
The delay in publishing
Bahamas Supermarkets' annu-
al results put BSL Holdings in
breach of one of its banking
covenants.
A trouble-shooting team of
accountants has since gone into
Bahamas Supermarkets to
work' through the accounts
payable and inventory issues.

Tensions rising



between Port



chair and St



George estate


FROM page one

Port Group Ltd and the
GBPA are basing their case
on the grounds that Mr Smith
acted as their outside coun-
sel for 23 years, and there-
fore has an alleged "conflict
of interest".
Both companies are seek-
ing an order that Mr Smith
or any Callerider's & Co
attorney be barred from act-
ing as the St George estate's
attorney.
In response, attorneys for
Mr Smith and Callender's &
Co have filed separate sum-
monses asking for the action
to be struck out, on the
grounds that it "discloses no
reasonable cause of action",
"is scandalous, frivalous and
vexatious", and could inter-
fere with a fair trial.
Mr Smith is being repre-
sented by Bostwick & Bost-
wick, and Callender's & Co
by Harry B Sands, Lobosky
& Company.
Carey Leonard, the GBPA
and Port Group Ltd general
counsel, in an affidavit in sup-
port of the Port's action,
alleged: "In the course of its
engagement [as GBPA and
Port Group Ltd], the defen-
dant would have been privy
to all sorts of general and
specific information in rela-
tion to the inner workings of
the plaintiffs and their deal-
ings with third parties, so as
to properly carry out its advi-
sory functions as well as its
participation in litigation on
the plaintiffs' behalf."
As a result, Mr Leonard
alleged that Mr Smith and
Callender's & Co were likely
to have received information
"capable of being used to the
detriment" of the GBPA and
Port Group Ltd in the own-
ership dispute, in which they
had been named as defen-
dants by the St George
estate.
Mr Leonard alleged that
the ownership litigation ini-
tiated by the St George estate
.was filed two days after Mr
Smith and Callender's & Co
resigned as outside counsel,
something he described as
creating a "conflict".


The resumption of the
GBPA and Port Group Ltd's
legal action to have Mr Smith
removed from the litigation
is understood to have further
exacerbated tensions between
the St George estate and Mr
Christiansen.'
Sources close to the situa-
tion have told Tribune Busi-
ness that the St George estate
initially thought Mr Chris-
tiansen would safeguard their
interests, but since his
appointment they perceive
him as acting in the interests
of the-Hayward side and
Roddie Fleming.
The latter is attempting to
acquire the GBPA and Port
Group Ltd, and has an option
to acquire the Hayward fam-
ily trust's interest in the two.


companies for $100 million.
The St George estate, though,
is adamant that it will not sell
to Fleming.
Among the issues that have
particularly vexed the St
George estate has been Mr
Christiansen's.decision to pay
between $23-$24 million to a
combination of the Freeport
Harbour Company and
Hutchison Whampoa, with
about $16 million of the pro-
ceeds being used to settle a
debt related to the Grand
Bahama Airport Company.
The St George estate
believes this may have
deprived it of dividend
income, which is the
sole source of funding it
depends on-to finance the lit-
igation.

Retirees worry on


financial futures


* By DAVE CARPENTER
AP Business Writer
CHICAGO (AP) -Today's
' retirees live in what may be the
waning days of retirement's
golden age, enjoying the full
benefits of Social Security and
company pensions in many cas-
es.
But their concerns are grow-
ing, and not just because of
advancing age. Living on a fixed
income has gotten much
tougher in a turbulent econo-
my, health insurance premiums
are rising and the value of many
of their homes is falling.
Retired teacher Rosie Eng-
man, a delegate to the Democ-
ratic National Convention, is
addressing the challenges.in a
way that mirrors the strategy of
many Americans: Living more
frugally. She and her husband
Larry grow their own vegeta-
bles, combine errands to save
on gas and only eat dinners out
on special occasions.
"You have to budget careful-
ly," said the 69-year-old resi-
dent of'Silver Spring, Md.
"Prices are ridiculous."
The Associated 'Press inter-
viewed a handful of retiree del-
egates to get some insight into
the economic issues that mat-
ter most to them.
The past several decades
have been a good time to be
retired in America, historically
speaking. Medicare was intro-
duced in 1965, Social Security
was expanded in the 1970s to
provide ample retirement ben-
efits, and pension programs that
began proliferating after World
War II have provided reliably
for many.
Just over 9 percent of the 65-
and-over population was living
in poverty in 2006, according to
U.S. Census data the lowest
in the more than four decades
of tabulating the category. By
contrast, the figure was between
20 percent and 30 percent in the
late 1960s and early '70s.
"Those 65 or older have long
been the poor population, and
that really has changed for a
very short window 30 or at
the most 40 years," said Steven


Sass, research director at the
Center for Retirement
Research at Boston College.
"Now we're seeing a contrac-
tion of those income support
systems that supported the
elderly namely Social Secu-
rity and worker pensions."
Retirees in future years may
be in for a rough ride if they
don't adapt, he said.
Many current retirees, includ-
ing some chosen for the con-
vention, feel like they're already
scrambling to live well on limit-
ed resources.
Just as she has worried about
the war in Iraq and the envi-
ronment, Engman now frets
about the economy and its
impact on her family and others.
"I worry about the huge
national debt that will affect all
of us and the poor economic
outlook," the Obama delegate
said. "I have five grandchildren
and I wonder, what kind of
world will their grandchildren
have?"

Skill
She and her husband are role
models for thrifty living a
skill many retirees lear-n by
necessity to master. She hangs
out their clothes to dry, to save
money as well as be ecological-
ly conscious. Their two cars are
10 years old. They shop at a
farmer's market every week.
And besides the tomatoes,
cucumbers and peppers they
grow in their yard, they try to
buy only fruits and vegetables
that are in season and other
items that are on sale.
Creating rnore jobs for man-
ufacturing workers out of work
in their nativeOhio and else-
where needs to be a priority,
she said. "We understand how
badly the people are hurting
there because we knew tons of
people who worked at those
factories."
Times are similarly tight for
Eileen Gallagher of Oceanside,
N.Y., who was elected a Barack
Obama delegate: She is focused
on the economy that has dealt
her a double blow this year.
First she had to sell her home


of 33 years because of fast-rising
bills that last year included
$7,000 in real estate taxes and
$3,000 in oil bills.'1 hen she had
to scrap her trip to the I)Democ-
ratic convention in Denver due
to the heavy out-ol pocket
costs, replaced byIw n alteinllte
delegate.
"With plane late. hotel, and
extra expenses it would have
been way over $1,000) and I'm
on a very fixed income," said
the 76-year-old retired librarian.
Gallagher says she's strug-
gling some as she goes through
every penny of her $2,600
monthly income, which cones
from Social Security and her
and her late husband's pensions.
Most goes for utilities, main-
tenance and real estate taxes on
the senior coop apartment she
bought last year. T' he lest goes
for food, gas, phone, 'IV, com-
puter and credit cat d payments.
She also treats herself.to New
York theater outings, takes
classes in writing and acting and
travels occasionally to Balti-
more to see her son and his
wife.
She has some money in a
bank CD, so the stock market's .
gyrations haven't bothered her.
Gallagher worked for years
as a secretary before getting a
graduate degree in library sci-
ence at age 52. Now she now
wonders whether it's possible
for hard-working labor ers to be
able to buy a decent home, as
her Irish immigrant grandpar-
ents did.'"
"It's too bad the days are
gone when hard-working immi-
grants could become part of the
middle class. "And my heart
goes out to people trying to
keep or buy a house nowadays
since taxes, heating, and other
rising costs are making this less
possible."
Sidelined from the conven-
tion by costs, she will still be
cheering him on fiom afar and
retaining her characteristic
feistiness on Democratic issues.
"This' Republican trickle-
down idea ---it evaporates
before it gets down to anybody
else," she scolfed. "Real

Support builds for US





offshore drilling end


* By DINA CAPPIELLO
Associated Press
Writer

WASHINGTON (AP) -
Six more senators on Tues-
day joined a bipartisan
group of 10 senators back-
ing a bill they say will
break the stalemate over
offshore drilling in Con-
gress.
Three Democrats and
three Republicans joined


Six more senators



join bipartisan group


the so-called Gang of 10,
making it the Gang of 16.
The group supports a bill
that would lift a ban on oil
and natural gas drilling in


the eastern Gulf of Mexico
and off the southeastern
U.S. coast, invest $20 bil-
lion in the development of
petroleum-free motor vehi-


cles and extend tax credits
for renewable energy.
Among the new converts
are two Republican sena-
tors facing tough re-elec-
tion bids this fall, under-
scoring the role high ener-
gy prices are playing on the
campaign trail. By signing
on with the group, Sens.
Norm Coleiman of Min-
nesota and John Sununu of
New Hampshire have bro-
ken with the majority of
their party, which like
President Bush, would like
to see the moratorium on
drilling lifted along the
entire Atlantic and Pacific
coasts.
Sununu said Tuesday
that while he favors lifting
the moratorium entirely,
the bipartisan bill opens up
new areas and has a chance
of being passed this year.
The other senators
rounding out the Gang of
16 on Tuesday .were
Republican John Warner
of Virginia and Democrats
Tim Johnson of South
Dakota, Tom Carper of
Delaware and Ken Salazar
of Colorado.


Leadership

The coalition, under the
leadership of Sens. Saxby
Chambliss, R-Ga., and
Kent Conrad, D-N.D.,
assembled in early August.
The other, four original
Republican members are
John Thune of South
Dakota, Lindsey Graham
of South Carolina, Johnny
Isakson of Georgia and
Bob Corker of Tennessee.
They were joined by
Democrats Blanche Lin-
coln and Mark Pryor of
Arkansas, Mary Landrieu
of Louisiana and Ben Nel-
son of Nebraska.
Congress broke for its
August recess without find-
ing agreement on how big a
role expanded domestic oil
and gas production
should have in a broader
energy bill. Lawmakers
return Sept. 8 for a
three-week session before
leaving again to campaign
for the November elec-
tions.
When Congress recon-
venes, Republican leaders
want an up-and-down vote
on a bill that would allow
more extensive offshore
drilling. Senate Majority
Leader Harry Reid, D-
Nev., and House Speaker
Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif.,
have indicated in recent
weeks that any bill includ-
ing drilling would be pack-
aged with other measures
opposed.by Republicans,
such as selling oil from
the country's emergency
stockpile and raising roy-
alties paid by oil compa-
nies.

Cox News Service.

WASHINGTON -- In a late-
summer U.S. Capitol where
even tourists were in short sup-
ply, a handful of Republican
House members were once
again at their protest posts
Tuesday.
As they have for 18 straight
weekdays now, the GOP law-
makers held forth in the cham-
ber of the recessed House,
demanding that the-Democrat-
ic majority return to allow an
up-or-down vote on an energy
bill that includes more drilling
for oil and gas, including
along the U.S. outer continental
shelf.
Rep. Tom Price of Roswell, a
Georgian who has played a
leading role in the congression-
al "speak-in," was back in town
to chide the platform the
Democrats produced at their
presidential nominating con-
vention in Denver." Price said it
"did not mention increasing the
supply of gasoline," which he
called "the number one issue of
the day."
Other Republicans expressed
concern that Democrats in Den-
ver might draw up a new energy
strategy that would go only part
way toward the GOP position.
Rep. Mac Thornberry of
Texas warned against a "cyni-
cal" political move coming "just


Commonwealth of the Bahamas
IN THE SUPREME COURT
COMMERCIAL DIVISION


because we've turned up the
heat."
The Republicans are insist-
ing on a vote on a bill that pro-
vides for maximum production
of American fuels as well as
promoting new energy sources
and energy conservation. Amid
soaring gasoline prices, they
hold that a bipartisan majority
of House members would
agree.
House Speaker Nancy Pelosi,
D-Calif., has refused to allow a
vote on the Republican pro-
posal. She and many Democra-
tic leaders counter that drilling
for more oil would damage the
environment and provide little
price relief at the gas pumps,
while prolonging dependence
on fossil fuels.
As part of the energy con-
frontation, the Republican law-
makers also seek an end to the
congressional ban on offshore
drilling. The ban is set to expire
Sept. 30. The GOP pledged to
resist-any extension, even if it is
inserted into annual spending
legislation needed to run the
federal government.
Asked if the Republicans
would try to shut down the gov-
ernment over the drilling issue,
Price held that "80 percent ol
the American people" favor the
Republican energy proposals
and added, "If push comes to
shove, that's (the Democrats')
decision to make."

of ea6h 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.

poverty holds steady


despite uninsured drop


* By RICARDO
ALONSO-ZALDIVAR
Associated Press
Writer
WASHINGTON (AP) -
The number of people
without health insurance
fell by more than 1 million
in 2007, the first annual
decline since the Bush
administration took office,
the Census Bureau report-

scorecard on President
Bush's stewardship of the
economy at the kitchen-
table level. But they only
went as far as the end of
last year, before the cur-
rent economic downturn
started gathering force.
Although there were some
bright spots, it was a mixed
picture.
While the overall poverty
rate held steady at 12.5
percent, poverty did rise
among some groups. Lati-
nos, children and the for-
eign-born demographic
categories that overlap
considerably experi-
enced significant increas-
es.

Covered
And while the number of
uninsured dropped to 45.7
million, down from 47 mil-
lion in 2006, it was largely
because more people were
covered through govern-
ment programs.
For the-middle class, the
median or midpoint -
household income rose to
$50,233, a modest increase
of $665 from the previous
year, although it was the
third consecutive annual
rise.

"The gains that occurred
last year were welcome,
but unfortunately, they are
too little, too late," said
Jared Bernstein, a senior
economist with, the liberal
Economic Policy Institute
in Washington. "The medi-
an household is no better
off now than they were
back in 2000, despite their
deep contribution to the
nation's economic growth
during this period."
For example, after
adjusting for inflation, last
year's median household
income of $50,233 was.not
significantly different from
the figure for 2000, which.
was $50,557. "The Ameri-
can work force is baking a
bigger economic pie, but
the slices haven't grown at
all," Bernstein said.
But White House
spokesman Tony Fratto
said the household income
and health insurance num-
bers are definitely good
news.
"It's clear that the long
period of strong economic
growth we were in had a
positive impact for most
Americans," Fratto said.
"Obviously today we're
dealing with higher energy
prices and the downturn in
housing, but the economy
is showing enough
resilience to keep growing
in spite of those chial-
lenges."
Republican candidate
John McCain distanced
himself from the White
House response, saying in a
statement, "Too many of
our neighbors are living in
poverty, too many can't
find a job, and too many
are living without health
insurance." The Arizona
senator pledged tax cuts
and policy changes to make
health care more afford-
able.
Some analysts said that
global trends, not just
administration policies, are
shaping the economic for-


tunes of individual Ameri-
cans.
"Presidents like to take
credit when things go-well,
and therefore they should
get the blame when things
don't go well, but there are
lots of things driving this,
not all of which are home
grown," said Douglas
Besharov, an expert on
poverty-at the business-ori-
ented American Enterprise
Institute. "The oil shocks
are not. And globalization,
which on balance is good
for the country, leaves win-
ners and losers."
The Census report was
immediately swept up into
presidential politics.
Democratic presidential
candidate Barack Obama's
campaign fired off a state-
ment blasting what it called
the "failed record" of
Bush's economic policies
and promising "bottom up
economic growth" if the
Illinois senator is elected.

Census
Overall, the Census
found 37.3 million people
living in poverty in 2007,.
of which 13.3 million were
children. The poverty level
for a four-person family in
2007 was $21,203. Among
age groups, seniors had the
lowest poverty rate at 9.7
percent, while, children had
the highest at 18 percent.
The poverty rate for 2006
was 12.3 percent, but the
change in 2007 was not sta-
tistically significant.
The welcome news on
health insurance coverage
was tempered by the con-
tinued erosion of private
coverage paid for by
employers and individuals.
Government programs -
such as Medicaid for the
poor picked up the
slack, resulting in the over-
all reduction in people
without health insurance.
The uninsured rate also
fell to 15.3 percent, down


from 15.,8 percent.in 2006.i
"Private insurance has
been falling (and) public
insurance definitely went
up," said David Johnson,
who oversees the Census
division that produced the
statistics. The number of
uninsured children also fell
in 2007, after an increase
in 2006 that had interrupt-
ed years of progress in get-
ting more kids covered.,
But seen over a longer
period of time, the health
insurance numbers are not
reassuring. The number o|
uninsured and the rate
- are higher today than
they were at the outset of
the Bush administration in
2001. That year, 39.8 miles
lion people, or 14.1 per-
cent, were uninsured.
"The number of unin-
sured is considerably high-
er than when the president
took office, and in each
year since then, employer-
sponsored insurance has
continued to diminish,"
said Ron Pollack, executive
director of Families USA,
liberal group advocating
coverage for all.
Stuart Butler, a to]
health policy expert at th4
conservative Heritagi
Foundation, said employ
ers are scaling back on pro
viding health care coverage
because costs keep rising
"I think it's more like w
are seeing a tide that
don't think anybody ca:
easily.fix, particularly i
the small-business-sector,
said Butler.
The Census report also
underscored the growing
role of women in the work-
place, finding the gap
between the earnings of
women and men -has
shrunk to an aH-timne.low.
In 2007, women working
full-time, year-round aver-
aged 78 percent of what
men earned. But the gen-
der gap varied considerably
depending on the indus-
tries and, types of jobs
involved. And the good
news for women may not
necessarily be a positive
for family incomes. The
Census found that a major
reason the gap is shrinking
is that men's earnings have
been fairly flat.

THE TRIBUNE OBITUARIES


REMEWBERING YOL


Mauriceo Laturner Davis
January 5th, 1975- August 17, 2005


Your time on earth seemed all too brief because we wanted you in our lives forever.
And although we really miss you
In our hearts we know that you a re at peace.
Still, countless times throughout the day
We find ourselves remembering you.
Although we cannot see or hear you,
We know that you are with us.
We will feel you in the warmth of the summer sun
We will see you in the brilliance of autumn leaves
You'll be beside us in the peacefulness of a gentle breeze
And rejoice with us at the emergence
Of the first flower of spring.
We are thankful for the times we shared
And the priceless memories too;
For those memories are a comfort now when we'll lovingly
Remember You
With Love

A Mighty Fortress!
Text: Psalm 46: The Reformer's Psalm: Theme:
God is our refuge:
The unshakable confidence with which the Psalm
leaves the believer prompted Martin Luther to pen one
of the great hymns of all time, "A Mighty Fortress Is
Our God. Martin'Luther wrote the song in 1529; and
Professor Frederick H. Hedge, of Harvard University
translated the song from German to English in 1853.
This hymn was sung at the funeral of American
President Dwight Eisenhower at the National Cathedral
in Washington, DC, March 1969.


Tpv.inc@coralwave.com This Psalm encourages us to hope and trust in God,
and His Power, Providence, and Gracious Presence
with His Church in the worst of times, and directs us
to give Him the glory of what He has done for us and what He will do: It is said
of Luther that, when he heard any discouraging news, he would say, Come let
us sing the forty-sixth Psalm. This Psalm is "To the chief Musician for the sons
of Korah, A Song upon Alamoth." The word is used in Isaiah 7:14 which says,
"Therefore the Lord himself shall give you a sign; Behold, a virgin shall conceive,
and bear a son, and shall call His Name Immanuel." Evidently the word means
"sung with virgins" and in this instance speaks of maidens' voices.
It is important to see this Psalm in its proper setting. It belongs after Psalm 45
and with Psalms 47 and 48. To consider these Psalms apart from each other is
like the little boy who was asked to give a definition of a lie. In his explanation
the little fellow put together two Scripture verses that were totally unrelated.
He said, "A lie is an abomination unto the Lord, but a very present help in time
of trouble." He misinterpreted the Scripture: We smile at the little boy, but we
do the same thing by taking this Psalm out of context. Psalm 46 is a wonderful
soprano solo, in which we see the Sufficiency of God, the Security of God, and
the Supremacy of God.
The Sufficiency of God: God is our refuge and strength, a very present
help in trouble: God is our Strength, to bear us up under our burdens, to outfit
us for all our services and sufferings; He will by His Grace put strength in us,
The Psalmist couches his language in reason. Though the earth is removed, and
the mountains are carried into the midst of the sea, nevertheless, Israel [Church]
remains calm. The metaphors of these verses are designed to encompass whatever
violent disturbances Israel (Church) may encounter. What a powerful thought:
Most people think they are the only ones who have ever had trouble. Everyone
has trouble, but God's People find God Sufficient in times of trouble.
The Security of God: There is a river, the streams whereof shall make glad
the City of God: This must be understood spiritually; God's Word and Ordinances
are rivers and streams with which God makes His Saints glad during cloudy
and dark days. Ever since the Garden of Eden, God has always had a river to
bring Peace to His Own; it is the River of God's Grace. The psalmist is so
certain of God's Grace in bringing about victory that he exclaims; God shall
help her, and that right early. Some expositors consider this river symbolic. I
believe the River is a reality that speaks of the Supply and the Refreshment that
God gives even today, and that River is the Word of God: example:
Psalm 1: "The blessed man planted by the rivers of water; which is the Word
of God;"
Ezekiel 47: "A river that flows out from the House of God."
Revelation 22:1: John saw, "A pure river of the 'Water of Life', clear as crystal,
proceeding out of the Throne of God."
If God be for us, if God be with us, we need not be moved at the most violent
attempts made against us. If God lives in our hearts, in the midst of us, with
His Word dwelling richly in us, we shall be established, we shall be helped; let
us therefore trust and not be afraid; all is well, and will end well.
The Supremacy of God: Be still, and know that I am God: It is good for us,
on occasion, just to stand still and watch intently the Mighty Hand of God at
work. He tells us to be calm in the time of storm. Christ, you remember, was
in a storm with His Disciples, and He went to sleep. When they roused Him
from His Sleep, He had more trouble calming the disciples than He had calming
the storm.
I invite you today, whenever any discouraging news arises, "Come let us sing
the forty-sixth Psalm."

What can I do?


When we think of what God has
done for us we have to marvel.
Consider God's wonderful act of cre-
ation and the beauty of our country
which is world famous.
Look up in the night sky when you
are in a dark place such as Adelaide
and gaze at the stars. I was blessed to
listen to Dr David Sands offer a fas-
cinating talk on the nature of the uni-
verse and the Bahamian night sky at
his Astronomy Club meeting, Friday
past. He made the point that we
could bemin astro-tourism on our
Family Islands as there are so few
places that are not flooded with elec-
tricity on the east coast of North
America.
Reflect on the gift of human rela-
tionships and our ability to love and
care for each other. Consider our
intellectual acumen and the human


fl


'I


REV. ANGELA
PALACIOUS


brain's capacity to think and imagine.
Ponder our musical, artistic and ath-
letic qualities and the benefits of
everyone being gifted differently and
capable of advancing our world in
incredible ways.
Meditate on the grace of God
offering the free gift of salvation
through the death of God's Son,
Jesus Christ on the cross, and the
indwelling companionship of the
Holy Spirit. Then, contemplate the
promise of eternal life in the pres-
ence of God Almighty forever. God
has done so much for us, what can we


do for God?
I would say that each one of us is
called to love, worship and serve God,
seeking to be holy by the grace of God
and to live a life that brings glory and
honour to God. Psalm 119:9-16 (NIV)
lists some possible responses) to the
question: "How do we keep ourselves
pure in this sin-ridden world?"
9) How can a young man keep his
way pure?
By living according to your word.

10) I seek you with all my heart;
do not let me stray from your
commands.

11) I have hidden your word in my
heart that I might not sin against you.

12) Praise be to you, 0 LORD;
teach me your decrees.


13) With my lips I recount all the
laws that come from your mouth.

14) I rejoice in following your
statutes as one rejoices in great riches.

15) I meditate on your precepts
and consider your ways.
16) I delight in your decrees;
I will not neglect your word.
When we seek God with all of our
heart, we place ourselves in a posi-
tion to be in intimate communion
with our Maker, Redeemer and
Sanctifier. We focus on what God
considers as essential, we want to
help others to enjoy the same gifts of
grace, and we prioritize on what has
eternal merit. What will you permit
God to do in and through you?


Family must forgive


The family is the strongest unit in
any society. When that deteriorates
we have a dilemma on our hands.
Family is a hard relationship.
That's biological or otherwise. I say
that because whenever there is a mis-
understanding or disagreement those
people for whatever reason are the
hardest to forgive. I know that
shouldn't be but unfortunately that's
the way it goes a lot of the time.
When you attend funerals, families
may not be speaking to each other
because arrangements were not made
to their liking or some item didn't get
left for them. So you end up being
mad with dead people.
Most of the time we allow pride to
get in the way, which makes it more
difficult to apologise. I'm of the firm
belief that we do what the Bible says
(for those who believe in it) in not let-
ting the sun go down on our wrath.
We think that is only for married cou-
ples and that's not so. I think it is the
case for whomever you happen to be
with. I also believe in leaving a gift at
the altar for a brother if he offends
you. This is humbling and says a lot
for a person's character.
We would live better with each
other if we actually did these thifigs.
The sad thing is we do the complete
opposite. We let the sun go down on
our wrath and instead of confronting
a person in love who offended us, we
leave situations-. in a, negatiive~.atate
and hold this in our hearts for years.
Families die without conversation or


LLI, S(.ON
MILLER


reconciliation, ever happening; and
that not only tragic but sad.
Family comes first which is hon-
ourable in the sight of God, the Bible
tells us. Again people are under the
impression that is for married people
only, not so. What if you never get
married? You wouldn't put the family
that you already have first?
If we don't do all that we can to
preserve the relationship of family we
fail ourselves and our country. I know
this is a process but the step has to be
made. I had a misunderstanding with
one of my sisters and when the whole
thing was over I thought about it and
felt horrible. There was an unsettling
within myself. So I picked up the
phone, called her and apologised.
Believe it or not I felt so much better.
Do you know what it would be like if
we were left alone in a room if we
hadn't repented?
We would have gone on with our
lives without speaking to each other
and that would not be good. What
would the excuse be for such bad
behaviour? We have the same parents
and grew up in the same house.
Regardless what happened, I'm glad
it was resolved.


FAMILY members need to do all that they can to preserve the relationship of fam-
ily or they will fail ourselves and their country.

St. Andrews Presbyterian

Kirk takes on a new

permanent minister

* By JEFFARAH GIBSON
AFTER many years of unsuccessful
searching, St Andrew's Presbyterian Kirk
will finally embrace a permanent minister
on August 26. Rev John Macleod, 36,
became a communicate member of the
Church of Scotland in Scaricta Manish
Congregation in April 11, 1991.
He holds a Master of Arts degree in
Gaelic Studies from Aberdeen University,
Scotland (1992-1995). .
He also received a Bachelor of Divinity
Honours degree in 1995-1998.
He covered subjects in church history
such as the Old and New Testament studies
and practical systematic studies.
Described as a dedicated family man,
Rev Macleod is married to Carol and has
two children, Andrew and Bethany. Not
only is he dedicated to his family, but he
has dedicated himself to a number of out-
reach programmes.
As he is a very spiritual person, members
of St Andrew's Presbyterian Kirk are very
confident that he will have an impact on
the church community.
Dr Davidson Hepburn, an elder at St
Andrew's Presbyterian Kirk, said he is
looking forward to his arrival. "We have
had an interim of ministers before we
found a permanent minister," he said.
Members at St Andrew Presbyterian
Kirk are also anticipating his arrival. Dr
Hepburn said members pester him about
the arrival of the new minister. He said they
would always'ask: "When is the new minis-
ter coming?"
While his arrival is very good for the
church, the elder stressed that the new min-
ister by himself cannot make any changes,
but members must also make an effort to
help.
Rev Macleod sees his* move from
Scotland to the Bahamas as excellent
opportunity for growth.
Dr Hepburn wants the public to come
and hear him speak. His first sermon is on
September 7.

SCORS o Ca isandrs aidther lst rspets o vtern CtecistJoh


SCORES of Cat islanders paid their last respects to veteran Catechist John




Cat Island Catechist



laid to rest at



Christ the King N.P.


Scores of Cat Islanders residing in
Nassau converged on Christ the King
Anglican Church grounds in
Ridgeland Park on Saturday to pay
their last fond farewells to veteran
Catechist John Armbrister.
Catechist Armbrister started his
ministry at an early age. Since being a
Cat Islander he would travel from St.
Luke's Anglican Church, Smith's Bay
and far north as St. Agnes in Orange
Creek.
During the Eucharistic Funeral cele-
bration presided over by Co-Adjutor
Bishop Laish Boyd, Fr. Chester
Burton, priest in charge of Cat Island,
received Catechist Armbrister's
remains from the foyer of the Church.
Afterwards, Christ the King Senior
Choir serenaded the mourners.
Also in attendance at the funeral
mass were a number of clergy Fr.
Rodney Burrows (Priest in Charge of
Christ the King), Fr. Ivan 'Timmy'
Eldon, Deacon Bradley Miller, Canon
Warren Rolle (native of Cat Island
whose father was a catechist also) and
Archdeacon I. Ranfurly Brovwn
(Archdeacon for the East Central
Archdeaconry of which Cat Island is
under his jurisdiction.)
In his sermon Archdeacon Brown
took his text from Matthew's gospel
which states that the greatest among
the disciples should be the servant of


all. Brown saluted Catechist
Armbrister for the yeoman service he
delivered to ,the Anglican -Church in
Cat Island and to our diocese.
He reflected that in the 1970s when
they went to Cat Island to replace St.
Andrew's Anglican Church roof in
Arthur's Town it was -Catechist
Armbrister who was at the forefront of
the work relief to assist the residents.
Archdeacon Brown acknowledged the
task was Herculean but he was always
accompanied by his wife Avis
Armbrister who was with him until the
very end and offered him spiritual and
moral support. Catechist was laid to
rest in Woodlawn Gardens Cemetery.
On Sunday morning Fr. Burton told
the Anglican Communion in the
Northern area of Cat Island who were
unable to attend the funeral service
what transpired.
Fr. Burton informed the members
of both St. Agnes Orange Creek and
St. Andrew's Arthur's Town where
Catechist Armbrister served for many
years that after the singing of the
recessional hymn there would be a
minute of silence for our fallen war-
rior. The bell would then toll for a
minute for the legacy that Catechist
Armbrister left behind; if it weren't for
catechists back in the earlier days,
many church doors would remain
closed.

The Papa John Family


FROM page 18

The production is about a family
whose name is "The Papa John
Family", and the mother and father of
the family are celebrating their 45th
anniversary. They have two daughters,
August and Monday. Monday is the
obese daughter that struggles with her
weight while August is the daughter
blessed with a beautiful voice who is
working on her singing career. Henry is
the father and Gloria is the mother.
Donald is the husband of August and
they have a daughter by the name of
Juju. Both Donald and August are
having their own family problems
which August chooses to neglect.
Donald on the other hand wants to
solve the family disputes and continue
with the happy life that he and August
held. Mavis is considered the friend of
the family. The youth department
Final Hour Ministries all take on the


roles of those characters.
Heath Fowler, writer and producer
of the production, says that the youth
department of the church have been
working very diligently to learn their
-lines. He also notes that they are very
versatile. "They are very good at
improvising, if they forget theirlines in
practice you probably wouldn't notice
it. They work very hard to learn their
lines and bring out the characters that
they play."
The entire-church is looking forward
to watching the play and they also
anticipate it will be a great success.
"We do believe that the play will be
a success. Networking has also been
playing to our advantage since people
on various websites like Facebook and
Hi5 have already confirmed that they
will be present at the show."
Along with the production Final
Hour Minstries also have a sitcom that
airs on ZNS and Cable 12. The name is
also The Papa John Family but is


slightly different from the Production.
The sitcom will be aired on ZNS on
Friday at 8pm.
This is about the last testament of
man by the name of Papa John, who
dies and somehow his family was not
aware of the fact that before he died he
owed people money. Now the family is
in total chaos since everyone is fighting
over the estate of the man. This story
carries the moral of teaching people
not to be solely interested in the riches
of the world. Heath Fowler said: "The
play basically show money being the
root to all evil and it is sending out the
message that friends come and go but
your family remain forever."
The Final Hour Ministries have been
implementing many activities in an
attempt to keep the young people in
the church active. They have encour-
aged the youth to participate in music
and theatre. "The purpose of all these
activities is to revive the youth and
keep them in a positive light."


Service to honour former President of the


Bahamas Conference of the Methodist Church


* By JEFFARAH GIBSON_

MRS. KENRIS CAREY'S time as
President of the Bahamas Conference
of the Methodist Church has expired
and she will be honoured at a service
on September 6, 2008.
Mrs. Carey, a native of Staniard
Creek, Andros and a veteran of World
Methodism, was elected as the first
Vice President of the Conference. She
served in this position for six years, the
longest term allowed for a Conference
Officer to serve in an elected position.
Mrs. Carey was later elected as
President of the Conference at the
Annual Conference in May 2002 when
the General Conference met in James'
Cistern, Eleuthera.. She succeeded
Rev. Charles Sweeting who served as
the second President. Mrs. Carey has


served the maximum term as President
and retires from the presidency on
August 31, 2008.
She made history when she was
appointed to the highest position in
the BCMC. She was the first woman
and the first lay person elected into
leadership of the Methodist Church.
The BCMC Constitution allows for

Minnesota prosperity gospel preacher blasts IRS inquiry


* BROOKLYN PARK, Minn.

THE PASTOR of one of Minnesota's
largest churches said an IRS investigation
into his ministry's finances is "politically
motivated."
The Rev. Mac Hammond is recogniza-
ble to- a wide audience through Sunday
morning TV broadcasts of his services-at
Living Word Christian Center in Brooklyn
Park.


Hammond wrote in a letter to congre-
gants that "enemies of the gospel" are
behind the inquiry. He preaches the pros-
perity gospel, which says that God wants
his faithful mllowers to be rewarded spiri-
tually and financially.
In March, the church declined to com-
ply with an IRS summons, arguing that the
law states the request must come from a
"high-ranking official" of the IRS. The
IRS has filed a petition in U.S. District


Court to force the church to answer a
demand for detailed financial information.
A court hearing is set for Oct. 2.
In his letter, Hammond said the agency's
actions are part of "a very clear effort, on
a national scale, to discredit, defame and
intimidate" prosperity gospel preachers.
Iowa Sen. Chuck Grassley, the ranking
Republican on the Senate Finance
Committee, is seeking the financial
records of six ministries that follow the
same theology to see if they comply with
IRS rules on nonprofit spending and com-
pensation.


Rev Paulette Maria Cartwright,
Assistant Curate at St. Paul's
Anglican Church, Long Island, and
Rev Marie Antoinette Roach,
Assistant Curate at St. Gregory's
Anglican Church, Carmichael Road,
were ordained to the Sacred
Priesthood on Monday, August 25th,
The Feast of St. Bartholomew, The
Apostle, at Christ Church Cathedral.
Chief Celebrant at the history-
making Ordination Service was The
Most Reverend Drexel Gomez,
Archbishop of The Province of The
West Indies and Bishop of The
Diocese of The Bahamas and The
Turks & Caicos Islands.
Concelebrants were The Right
Reverend Laish Boyd, Bishop
Coadjutor and The Right Reverend
Gilbert Thompson, Assistant
Bishop. The sermon was preached
by The Very Reverend Patrick
Adderley, Vicar General and Dean
of Christ Church Cathedral. Music
was provided by the choirs of St.
Ambrose, St. Gregory's and Mr.
Adrian Archer.
Among the hundreds attending the
service were The Governor General,
Arthur Hanna, and Mrs. Hanna, and
Commissioner of Police, Mr.
Reginald Ferguson and Mrs.
Ferguson.
With the ordinations of Rev
Cartwight and Rev Roach, the num-
ber of female Priests in the Anglican
Diocese has increased to six. The
ordinations were also history-making
moments for the Diocese, with Rev
Marie joining her father, Canon Neil
Roach, as the first father/daughter
priest combination. Rev Cartwright
is the first female Priest from Long
Island.
Both Rev Cartwright and Rev
Roach celebrated their first mass on
Tuesday evening: Rev Cartwright at
St. George's Parish, and Rev Roach
at St. Gregory's.

Godly






gimmick.




Churches offer free gas

N VALLEY CITY, N.D.

CAROL UMSTED got more than the word of
God during services this summer at the
Congregational United Church of Christ of Valley
City, according to the Associated Press.
She also got $50 worth of free gas. For the local
farmer, it was a nice side benefit, at a time when gas
was more than $4 a gallon.


Churches nationwide are making sim-
ilar offers, ranging from gas card raffles
to 99 cent gas sales at local stations, to
boost attendance during the vacation
season and attract new members.
But some Christians question whether
a financial incentive should be used to
draw people into church.
Robert Kruschwitz, director of The
Center for Christian Ethics at Baylor
University, called the promotions
"unseemly" and "misguided."
Umstead, a church official, said a cou-
ple of Valley City congregants stopped
attending because they considered it "a
bribe." But the Rev. Carl Borden, pastor
of the congregation, said the overriding
goal is to have a little fun and remind
people that the church is there.
"It's a method of marketing for the
church," he said. "For a $200 investment
we've made, we got featured in the local
newspaper once, twice on TV, and it's the
buzz around town. I can't get a quarter-
page ad for $200."
Church leaders have debated for years
whether modern marketing techniques
cheapen the faith or are an effective -
and necessary means of evangelizing.
Even those Christians who believe some
marketing is helpful disagree about how
far they should take the approach.
David T. Olson, director of the
American Church Research Project and
head of church planting for the
Evangelical Covenant Church, said inde-
pendent, Pentecostal and Baptist
churches with nontraditional ways of
attracting new members are more likely
to use promotions like the gas raffles.
But he said there are other more effec-
tive ways of drawing newcomers.
"I personally would encourage them
thajyha ing people from their. cuTerth,
.banmld relationships with their 'friends
who do not attend church, and invite


them as their friend, would be a much
better strategy," Olson said.
Nathan White, an Atlanta-area
Baptist, was troubled by a church gas
card raffle he learned about at a Baptist
church in Snellville, Ga. The corporate
executive, who plans to become a pastor,
thinks, gas giveaways are shameful finan-
cial gimmicks that undermine the
Gospel.
"They are appealing to the natural
corruptions in unbelieving people ....
The Bible warns very explicitly about
the dangers of greed, the love of money
being the root of all evil," said White.
"Appealing to the selfish motives of
people is not Christianity."
The nondenominational Liquid
Church in Morristown, N.J., took its gas
promotion outside of the church.
Members went to a local service station
in August, bought $10,000 worth of fuel
and sold it for 99 cents a gallon.
"We canceled services that day, and
said our service to the community will
be our service," said the Rev. Tim
Lucas.
"This wasn't a gimmick, 'Hey, come to
our church.' There was no bait-and- -
switch. We didn't try to convert people.
We just wanted to show we care," he..
said.
He noted that the church also pro- "_
vides money to drill wells in African
countries.
There, "water is the most precious liq-
uid," Lucas said. "In New Jersey, it's
gas."
Michael Cromartie, vice president of
the Ethics and Public Policy Center, a
Washington, D.C., think tank, said there
is a fine line between advertising a Jeff Roberson/AP Photo
church and using what he called "huck-
ster" means to entice outsiders. -. CHUL HE. all over the US are offering its attendees the chance to win free gas as a
