investigation at NIB'


IT EMERGED last night
that a sitting Member of Par-
liament before the'last gener-
al election intervened on
behalf of a woman who is now
under investigation at the
National Insurance Board.
According to sources at
National Insurance, the
woman was promoted shortly
before the last general elec-
tion despite what they claim
was her lack of qualifications
for the post.
Reportedly the woman in
question falsified her qualifi-
cations by claiming to have
various academic degrees
when in fact she had none.
Since her appointment,
sources allege. she has been
accused of writing letters for
businesses to show that their
National Insurance contribu-


tions were up to date when in
fact they were not.
These letters, said the
source, are required for the
Business Licence department
to prove that these businesses
are in compliance with the
law. It is alleged that she was
being paid "quite handsome-
ly" for her efforts.
In addition to this, the
woman has also reportedly
been charging Haitians $1,000
each for copies of payment
receipts for national insurance
that would be needed to
renew their work permits.
As of press time last night,
government sources still could
not identify how much money
the woman might have made
from her job at NIB.

AS THE country's tourism

the work week of some
employees within the hospi-

as short as two days.
While Bahamians struggle
to pay their electricity bills and

only two out of five days and

crash simulation
AMBULANCES from the
Princess Margaret Hospital and
Doctors Hospital took 20 and 35
minutes respectively to arrive at
the airport after they were called
as part of a plane crash simula-
tion yesterday.
Five minutes after the ambu-
lance from PMH arrived on the
tarmac, a second turned up from
the Defence Force' s Coral Har-
bour base.
The simulation conducted
by Nassau Airport Development
company (NAD) officials along
with Defence Force, police, and
medical teams from both the
Princess Margaret and Doctor's
Hospitals lasted roughly 90
minutes.
It took place on runway Juliet
at LPIA.
Police recruits donned make-
up and were made to look as if
they were suffering from bums of
varying degrees as well as other
injuries associated with a crash.
Some lay on the tarmac, pre-
tending to be dead, others wailed
and screamed as medical teams
scampered over them to attend
to their fictitious wounds.

1 By ALEX MISSICK
RESIDENTS of North Andros say they are
furious after having to deal with load shedding for
the past week due to the BEC plant having diffi-
culties with its generators.
According to an inside source on the island,
BEC's North Andros station was allowed to run
out of fuel, resulting in load shedding and damage
to the generators.
The source said that, deprived of fuel, the
engines sucked up dirt and caught fire, almost
burning down.
Of the five generators at the plant, three have
already blown, leaving only two 4p and running to
service the entire northern district.
The storage fuel tank was also empty for seven
days as the fuel barge went to South Andros
instead, the source said.
According to residents, the power has been
going out for the past two weeks, three times a day
and sometimes more.
The people in North Andros said they are fed
up and angry at the corporation for these black-
outs.
A local beauty salon owner said she cannot
operate her business because of the outages, which
force her to send away customers.
"In the middle of salon services such as relaxers,
hot curling or pressing, the power goes out. I can-
not do anything in my business. I had to go across
the street carrying buckets of water to take chem-
icals off of my clients," she said.
And in many homes, the outages are causing
appliances to malfunction.


"My refrigerator is leaking, meat is spoiling,
bread is going stale, yet the bill is still outra-
geous," the salon owner said.
With a convention going on in Conch Sound,
North Andros, another resident says the outages
are absolutely ridiculous.
"I am having a convention and it was very
embarrassing to have the power go off while we
were in church. It's ridiculous how BEC juggles
what settlements get power and when they get
power," she said.
General manager of BEC, Kevin-Basden,
admitted that the power situation in North Andros
has not been fully resolved.
"There were some challenges with some of the
generating units as a few of them developed faults
in North Andros. We did have a subsequentfail-
ure on a generator yesterday morning. We have
sent technicians down there from New Provi-
dence to assist and hopefully we can get another
unit back on by today," Mr Basden said.
However, he denied the claims about fuel short-
ages for the plant in North Andros.
"The recent hurricanes and tropical storms
have affected the shipping lanes so this caused
scheduled shipping to be delayed.
"There was a delay in terms of the fuel barge,
but we transported some fuel from the Central
Andros station by truck. This was used to keep
them going until the barge arrived on Saturday,"
Mr Basden said.
Mr Basden said the corporation sends its apolo-
gies to the residents of North Andros, adding
that there will be ohe generator sent to the island
to give some relief to the community.

A magistrate has recused

Govt seeking 'equitable


distribution of ownership'



of planned Arawak Cay port


* By ALISON LOWE
Tribune Staff Reporter
alowe@tribunemedia.net
THE government is pursuing
the ideal of having "equitable dis-
tribution of the ownership" of the
proposed Arawak Cay port
spread between "all players;
Bahamian and non-Bahamian,"
Minister of State for Finance
Zhivargo Laing said.
This comes after the Arawak
Cay Port Development Company
the Bahamian group of Nassau-
based shipping and shipping relat-
ed companies who wish to be con-
sidered for the Arawak Cay port
project said they were told the
government would like to see at
least 60 per cent Bahamian own-
ership of the new port.
Mike Maura, deputy chairman
of the ACPDC, said the company
was formed on the basis that the
prime minister had expressed a
desire to see majority Bahamian
ownership, but with no individ-
ual shareholder having more than
' a 15 per cent stake.
Asked yesterday whether this is
in fact Prime Minister Ingraham's


A CALL has gone out to all
religious leaders in the Haitian
community to hold special col-
lections during church services
for those suffering from the
impact of several storms.
Hundreds were-killed and
thousands affected when Tropical
Storm Fay and hurricanes Gus-
tav, Hanna and Ike passed over
Haiti.
"The loss of human life .iid
piop'erty as well as danmaec to
infrastructure has been tremein-
dous." said a release from their
Haitian Embassy. "'No gilt is too
small if it cones from a genuine
nce.d to help those less fortunate".
The Haitian Permanent Emer-
gency 'Relief Coriimittic.
(HPERC) w-is formed to work
closely with the Haitian Embass\
in Nassau to manage emeigcncy
relief and assistance. Its oblcc-
lives are to collect funds neces-
sary to bring relief to the tlou-
sands of families in need in the
North West, and particularly the
area of Gonaives.
The committee is managed by:
president Mary Reckly; vice pres-
idents Ernsy Charles and Matre
Franqois; secretary/treasurer Julie
George Smith, and assistant trea-
surer Claude Joseph.
An emergency relief fund has
also been opened at the Royal
Bank of Canada's main branch
under the name "Embassy of
Haiti Emergency Relief Fund".
The account number is 289-295-8.
The HPERC is requesting that
donations be made to this account
from any Royal Bank branch in
the Bahamas before October 15
so that aid is sent by the end of
October at the latest.
The committee also hopes to
create a permanent fund that may
be called upon in the future in
the event of emergcncies/disais-
ters arising in the Haitian com-
munity here or in Haiti.


favoured plan for the port, Mr
Laing said: "It is always desirable
for us that Bahamians can have
an interest in, an increased and
expanded interest in, any enter-
prise but that always matters to
the dynamics of the enterprise.
"What I do know is that the
principle is always that there is
no single dominant controlling
interest in this port relocation
effort, I always knew that. And I
think that is a principle that is
being pursued as these discus-
sions take place."
On Tuesday anti-free trade
advocate and PLP deputy lead-
ership contender Paul Moss
alleged that his "information" on
the status of government's con-
sideration of bids was that it is
"siding" with the port proposal
from the Mediterranean Shipping
Company.
MSC, like other foreign owned
shipping companies such as Trop-
ical and Seaboard, has been oper-
ating in the Bahamas for some
time.
"We ask the government not to
consider MSC or any foreign
developer for this site. It ought
to be 100 per cent Bahamian and


the prime minister must pledge
to give his support for those
Bahamians that have put in a bid
to build this port," said Mr Moss.
But Mr Moss's claim was
rebuffed by Minister of the Envi-
ronment Earl Deveaux who
accused him of scaremongeringg"
and said the prime minister "long,
long ago" expressed his intention
to see the project go to a Bahami-
an company.
Mr Laing also alleged that Mr
Moss is seeking to "breed fear" -
this time for making comments
linking MSC's involvement in the
port relocation to the govern-
ment's decision to sign the Eco-
nomic Partnership Agreement
with Europe.
The government determined
last year that it would likely have
the port relocated to Arawak Cay
rather than southwest New Prov-
idence as the former PLP gov-
ernment had advocated.
The move will play a major
part in what the government
hopes will be the revitalisation of
downtown Nassau, taking the
shipping facilities, and the noise
and congestion they-create, away
from the tourist hub.

Union members face punishment


over industrial action, says Laing


* By ALISON LOWE
Tribune Staff Reporter
alowe@tribunemedia.net
THE management of BTC is
"actively working on" enforcing
punishments of some kind on
unionised workers who partici-
pated in disruptive industrial
action, said Minister of State
Zhivargo Laing.
This comes after Bahamas
Communication and Public Offi-
cers Union president Robert Far-
quharson told The Tribune earli-
er yesterday that he had yet to
see any sanctioning of union
members in the wake of the two
day protest over the union's role
in privatization talks.
The protests took place a
month and a half ago, on August
11 and 12.


Around 600 BTC employees,
represented by the BCPOU and
the managerial union, the BCP-
MU, took to the streets, block-.
ing Bay Street for over an hour
during their lunchtime and later
causing similar disturbances in
Freeport.
With BTC vehicles stopped
throughout Nassau's downtown
thoroughfare, Mr Farquharson
alleged they had experienced
simultaneous "mechanical diffi-
culties".
The action also led to the clo-
sure of BTC's public offices and
disruption of scheduled repairs,
according to BTC management.
A week later, the company's
chairman Julian Francis .said the
workers "would have to be sanc-
tioned" for their behaviour, sug-
gesting suspensions or pay cuts

Tribune Staff Reporter
A BAHAMAS National Drug Agency official has dispelled
concerns that products listed on an FDA contamination alert
may be being sold in the Bahamas.
Deputy Director of the BNDA Dr Marvin Smith told The Tri-
bune, that none of the products placed on the alert are imported
into the country.
Dr Smith did disclose however: "We do have a number of
products bought from that company. We buy silver, and sulfur
diocin cream 'used as burn medication'."
He emphasised however that these products are not on the list
of products that have been placed on the product alert."
More than.a week ago, the United States Federal Drug Admin-
istration (FDA) officially banned imports, of some 38 pharma-
ceutical products which are made by generic drug manufacturing
giant Ranbaxy Laboratories.
The company, which is based in India, was informed by the US
agency that certain drugs and ingredients manufactured at its
plants in Dewas and Paonta Sahib including the Batamandi unit
- were put on an import alert due to inconsistencies at the two
plants.
Products placed on the FDA import alert range from: antibi-
otics, anti-virals, high cholesterol and diabetes medicines, and also
include allergy and acne products.
Most notably, the company is also the main supplier for AIDS
medication to countries under US President George Bush's
Emergency Plan for AIDS Relief (PEPFAR) such as Africa.
Douglas Throckmorton, a physician with the FDA's Centre for
Drug Evaluation and Research, said there was "no evidence of
harm to consumers" from drugs made at the Dewas and Paonta
Sahib plants. He called the import ban "a preventive action."
According to an official announcement from the FDA: "The
problems at these two Ranbaxy plants relate to deficiencies in the
company's drug manufacturing processes." '


could be in order. Meanwhile,
Deputy Prime Minister Brnt
Symonette said that "appropri-
ate action" would be taken.
Their comments caused Mr
Farquharson and National Con-
gress of Trade Unions President
John Pinder to declare that l:hey
would not take such a couniter-
move lightly.
Mr Farquharson said the
BCPOU would "respond aggres-
sively" to any punishment, pos-
sibly striking again, while Mr Pin-
der suggested the NCTU o'n the


whole would support them in
such a response.
Opposition MP and former
minister of labour Shane Gibson
stood by the workers, saying gov-
ernment would be wrong to sanc-
tion them for having "reacted to
an injustice."
But other stakeholders and
irate members of the public have
suggested that there are too many
"illegal strikes" that do not elicit
any penalty, resulting in a grow-
ing "culture". of irresponsible
labour action.

New book release on Bahamian firsts


* BY ALEX MISSICK
ABOUT two years ago when Vylima
Thompson-Curling began writing her
life story, she got the idea that it would
be wise to record a few firsts. This idea
blossomed into a full-length book
which has just been released.
In the book, Great Bataniatins-Wlho
were first in the niodern Bahamas 1967-
2007, Mrs Thompson Curling wanted
to include persons who were first in
certain things specific to the develop-
ment of the Bahamas.
She also wanted to vary the persons
she chose to include in the book to get


"I want young
people to appreciate
what we have by
knowing where we
came from."

Vylma Thompson- Curling
as much of a diverse group as possible.
"I was inspired to write this book
because we find that there are so many
of us who have been active in the


social, educational, financial and polit-
ical aspect of our country and this
information is not there. I wanted to
highlight Bahamians who established
'firsts' and contributed in their own
way to the development of the
Bahamas," Mrs Thompson-Curling
said. "By recording this information, it
allows readers to reflect, analyse, exam-
ine and appreciate the past as well as
celebrate and realise the potential of
the Bahamas," she said.
An educator for 28 years, Mrs
Thompson-Curling said she wants her
book to reach the high school students
and primary school students, in a way


thiat teaches them about persons they
did not know about who contributed to
Bahamian society.
"1 want young people to appreciate
what we have by knowing where we
came from," she said.
The book covers the first premiers
and prime ministers of the Bahamas,
the first presidents of the senate, as
well as 91 other great Bahamians who
were first in their professions.
Mrs Thompson-Curling added a sec-
tion that lists important 'first' events
from 1947 to 2007, which covers every-
thing from the Burma Road Riots to
the ascension of Free National Move-


ment leader Hubert Ingraham to the
office of prime minister for the third
non-consecutive term.
Mrs Thompson Curling achieved
many 'firsts' of her own. She was one
of the first vice principals of a sec-
ondary school in the Bahamas, the first
female education officer and senior
education officer, and the first assis-
tant director in charge of planning.
She also named an Officer of the
Order of the British Empire (OBE)
by Queen Elizabeth II in 1999 for her
contribution to the development of the
Bahamas through education and pub-
lic service.

Tropical system which hit Puerto Rico

'should not directly affect the Bahamas'


* By CHESTER ROBARDS
Tribune Staff Reporter

THE TROPICAL distur-
bance that dumped feet of
rain on Puerto Rico should
not directly affect the
Bahamas, according to Chief
Meteorologist Basil Dean.
The system, which lingered
over Puerto Rico killing four
people, is forecast to begin
moving in the direction of the
Bahamas as early as today.
"The projected movement
is toward the north eventually,
so by this afternoon it should
start pushing off towards the
north and it should move par-
allel to the chain of islands,"
said Mr Dean.
He said the Bahamas could
receive some moderate rain,
but nothing catastrophic.
"The southeast Bahamas
could get some showers from
it but nothing much to really
talk about," he said.
"Once it gets over open
water the probability of it
becoming a tropical depres-
sion increases, but even that
should not pose too much of a
threat to the Bahamas unless
it decides to move west; then
we should be concerned, but
as long as it moves north ward
we're fine."
The National Emergency
Management Agency
(NEMA) is on standby and
says it is ready to deal with
the storm should it affect the

Warning about economic impact of chronic diseases


* By TANEKA THOMPSON
Tribune Staff Reporter
tthompson@tribunemedia.net
SAN DIEGO, California By
the year 2030, chronic diseases
like diabetes and cancer will
become major economic prob-
lems, crippling health-care ss-
tems in Latin America and the
Caribbean unless regional lead-
ers invest huge resources in pre-
ventative measures, according to
an advisor for the Pan American
Health Organisation.
For instance, if governments
fail to step up efforts in preven-
tative methods for type II dia-
betes (a disease which affects
about 20 million in the region and
around 10 per cent of the
Bahamian population) regional
leaders will spend about 30 per
cent of thier total health expen-


diture in treating the disease,
according to Dr Gerado de Cosi,
epidemiologist and advisor for
PAHO.
Persons who are overweight,
obese and/or smokers have anl
increased risk for both diseases, as
well as hypertension, chronic res-
piratory illnesses and a host of
other preventable ailments, Dr
de Cosi said during the 6th annu-
al health workshop for the
Caribbean and Latin
America, hosted by Merck Sharp
& Dohme and the Institute of the
Americas. And while tabacco is
mainly associated with lung can-
cer risks, Dr Cosi revealed that
smoking can increase a person's
risk for all cancers by 40 per cent.
While there are many regional
efforts in place to develop pro-
grammes to prevent chronic dis-
eases, a common challenge is


College launches Research Journal online
THE College of the Bahamas has announced the launch of its
Research Journal online in an open access format, as a method of
giving the research conducted by its faculty and students greater expo-
sure.
In transforming into a university, the college said it expects the
Research Journal to increasingly become a forum for discussion,
debate, analysis and critique of public policy issues since the role of aca-
demic research in informing public debate and public policy is "of
critical importance".
The administration said it expects the College/University of the
Bahamas to lead and inform such debates in its research agenda. At a
press conference in the Michael Eldon Complex to announce the
launch, college president Janyne Hodder said: "Over the years, the arti-
cles written by our faculty in College Forum reflected a broad range of
research interests and scholarly pursuits. These articles, however, nev-
er had the kind of visibility and distribution potential that we are pro-
viding today's scholars at the college with the launch of "the College of
the Bahamas' Research Journal online."
The articles selected for this volume, referred to by president Hod-
der as "proof of the diversity of research interests of our faculty as well
as a demonstration of the extent to which the research of our faculty is
driven by national concerns", are from varied disciplines: political sci-
ence, law, education and psychology, and all address important public
policy issues that impact the Bahamas. College student Cassandra
Adderley studied neighbourhood noise and nuisances; Professor
Michael Stevenson analysed legal and constitutional issues surround-
ing censorship; Mr William Fielding set out standard definitions of ani-
mal ownership and levels of care that can inform the Animal Control
Act; Dr Janet Collie-Patterson identified and discussed factors that con-

reversing the public mindset and

"There are many efforts specifi-

specific programmes on chronic
diseases. The issue, the focus -

most difficult but once you

make the switch. The problem is
how do you do it? The proposed
solutions are very simple: increase
your physical activity, eat more
fruits and vegetables, and increase
your consumption of fibres but
can (the public) do it?"
If chronic diseases didn't exist,
researchers believe life expectan-
cy would increase by seven years.
The abscence of chronic diseases


would also relieve strains on the
health-care system, like over-
crowded emergency rooms due
to mismanagement of diabetes
and hypertension.
Small dietary changes like eat-
ing five servings of fruit of veg-
etables daily, combined with 30
minutes of physical activity a day
can significantly lower a person's
risk for these diseases.

Govt urged to ensure Canada-bound

students avoid registration woes


FORMER foreign affairs min-
ister Fred Mitchell is urging gov-
ernment to take steps to avoid
registration problems for students
travelling to Canada next year.
The call follows what Mr
Mitchell said were "frantic"
enquiries from parents whose
children had not yet been granted
visas to travel to Canada and
begin their studies this year.
"In one case, the processing of
visas resulted in the student hav-
ing to give up his place in school
for this term and enter instead in
January 2009," he said.
Mr Mitchell said officials
should lobby the Canadian gov-
ernment to dedicate more
resources to visa issuing for
Bahamians. '
"Further, Bahamian parents
and students would do well to
understand that the deadlines are
in fact six to eight weeks before
departure; that Canada is not the
Bahamas, where if you know
someone, you can fix a missed
deadline. Also, students and their
parents should not travel to Cana-
da if they do not have a valid stu-


dent visa or travel permission
from the Canadian High Com-
mission or they will be turned
back at the border," Mr Mitchell
said. He said there needs to be a
systemic approach to solving such
problems, "not reliance on indi-
vidual contacts and solutions".
Mr Mitchell noted that the
problem is complicated by the
fact that there is no Canadian
High Commission in the
Bahamas. "Relations between
Canada and the Bahamas in my
view remain very good. This issue
seems an unnecessary irritant in
the relationship," he said.


"As you know most embassies
and high commissions serve the
Bahamas from Kingston, Jamaica.
The processing time for visas is
approximately six to eight weeks.
The matter is further complicated
by the need for a medical exami-
nation of the visa applicant,
including a requirement for chest
. x ray because the Bahamas is list-
ed as a tuberculosis country. The
medical processing takes place in
Trinidad and then is sent to
Jamaica. All of this leads to delay.
"In a number of cases brought
directly to my attention, I have
been in contact with the Ministry
of Foreign Affairs with a view to
getting the individual cases
resolved. The Canadian High
Commission has been most help-
ful in resolving most of the issues.
"Lastly, the Canadians should
revisit the requirement for chest
X-rays. Tuberculosis is no more a
problem in this country than it is
in the United States and so the
requirement seems an onerous
and unnecessary one given the
realities on th'e ground," Mr
Mitchell said.

BPSU members in Bahama,


Bimini and Abaco 'feel


under-represented'


Bahamas Public Service
Union members in Grand
Bahama, Bimini and Abaco feel
under-represented, a union
election candidate has claimed.
Grand Bahainu Customs offi-
cer Larry Bodie who is running
to represent the northern
region, said: "' have travelled
to Bimini and Abaco and mem-
bers there hive told me that
they have notseen anyone from
the union's executivee team in
three years. So one of the things
I would liketo do if elected is to
ensure proper representation of
members i the north."
Mr Bocie is part of Team
Restoraton, led by veteran
unionist Alexander Burrows,
who is inning for president
against tie incumbent John Pin-
der.
Civi' servant Sherman
Stevers, another Restoration
candichte, said he believes that
Mr Burrows who has served
as ara vice president of the


"I have been a
member of the
BPSU for 27
years, and for
the last six years
I have not been
happy with the
union's
representation."

Jacqueline Lewis
BPSU northern region in
Freeport would make a better
union president.
"People are aching for
change and the betterment of
the entire public service. For
too long things have not been


happening fast enough and
there has been favouritism
among union members, but we
intend to be fair to all mem-
bers," he said.
Union secretary Jacqueline
Lewis, a civil servant in the
Judicial Department in Nassau,
and Hilton Solomon, Field
Supervisor of the Department
of Health, have also thrown
their support behind Mr Bur-
rows and are running with him
in the upcoming election.
"The union has taken its
members for granted and now
that the tenure is nearing an
end they (union executives) are
now trying to do things for
members," claimed Ms Lewis.
"I have been a member of the
B.PSLJ for 27 years, and for the
last six years I have not been
happy with the union's repre-
sentation.
"Civil servants are hurting
and we believe we are the bet-
ter choice," she said.

The Bahamas and the New World

(Trade) order: Who said we could

still do whatever we wanted?


* BY IAN BETHEL-BENNETT
Apparently, Minister Laing
seems to hint that the Bahamas
can leave the 'P-A whenever it
feels like, as it can with the WTO.
This is an extremely simplistic
way of explaining binding agree-
ments. Surely, one cannot sim-
ply, the day after signing onto an
international agreement, decide,
'oh well, I want to change my
mind,' particularly when the ini-
tial signing means that your coun-
try's system has to change. Why
else would they be biding agree-
ments?
Some issues that have been
hugely overlooked are two foun-
dational premises in trade liber-
alisation: Most Favoured Nation
Status (MFN), and National
Treatment. The former states that
whatever preferences are offered-
to the most favoured trading part-
ner must in turn be offered to all
members of the World Trade
Organisation or the Economic
Partnership agreement. You
CANNOT discriminate because
one is your cousin, neigbour,
friend. Simplistically put, pre-
ferred treatment between the EU
and its former colonies ceased to
exist. That is one reason why Bac-
ardi is on its way out of the
Bahamas. The company no
longer stands to gain anything
from being based here. All coun-
tries must now be given the same
treatment as the Bahamas was
given under the Lom6 agreement,
that enabled us to be somewhat
competitive with other, larger
countries and made it beneficial
for Bacardi to operate here.
These preferences are now his-
tory.
The second, National Treat-
ment, means that Bahamians can-
not be treated preferentially in
their own country over foreign
companies. If a Bahamian com-
pany must adhere to particular
regulations, then a foreign com-
pany cannot be required to
adhere to these regulations plus
other that are uniquely designed
to benefit Bahamian companies
and control foreign entities.
True, foreigners will still need
work permits to work in the
Bahamas but in theory we can-
not ask more of foreign nationals
than we require from Bahamians.
Further, if the Bank of the
Bahamas/Bahamas Development
Bank seeks to support Bahamian


companies, it, again in theory, is
required.to extend equal treat-
ment, no less preferential treat-
ment, to foreign companies.
So, for example, -if the bank
decides to give someone from
Kemp Road a loan to build a five-
room hotel at seven per cent
interest for the life of the loan,
they would have to make the
same offer to any foreign concern
that wants to build a similar five-


room hotel. Who said that
Bahamians would receive special
treatment once we sign onto the
EPAiWTO? This type of treat-
ment is now outdated. Whatever
the government gives one it must
give everyone. And, we cannot
sign and un-sign international l
agreements as we change our
underclothes. The ramifications
of such thinking/behaviour are
dread.

Some in hospitality sector have


work week cut as short as two days


IRONM page one
thlt 'both lie hotels on the
t';Ibk' l)L'lach Strip and New
l'ro\ lc'ii .''s premier resort,
.\il:nllis. :re expCriencing low
occup.acy levels.
Roiirti Sands, senior vice-
prc[iidc'nl for administration
ind external affairs at the
('able Beach Resorts. told The
i'ribticu' \esterdaiy that
lBahA.iminar is experiencing a
"chall.'ning" period as
ieCgartds occupancy.


As the company struggles
through the Fall season, the
work weeks of staff have had
to be cut shorter than in pre-
vious years.
The Sheraton Nassau Beach
Resort occupancy is currently
only at 35 per cent of the
hotel's capacity, Mr Sands said.
The Wyndham Nassau
Resort and Crystal Palace
Casino, Mr Sands said, is for-
tunate to have several group
bookings for the upcoming
weekends.
Benefitting from the group


travellers, the Wyndham's
occupancy rate is therefore
currently at 55 to 60 per cent,
he said.
This occupancy rate is high-
er than that of New Provi-
dence's number one property,
Atlantis.
Ed Fields, senior vice-presi-
dent of public affairs at Kerzn-
er International, said that
Atlantis' occupancy is just
under 40 per cent right now,
but is expected to climb higher
during the weekend.
Mr Sands explained that the


hotels have been hit by a
"triple whammy" the ongo-
ing soft economy, the finan-
cial crisis in the United States
and the recent passage of
Tropical Storm Hanna and
Hurricane Ike.
Although New Providence
experienced only minor effects
from Ike, Mr Sands said that
the passage of a hurricane
through the Bahamas is always
detrimental to business.
In addition to this, Mr Sands
said it is his opinion that the
high cost of travel has been


deterring people from taking
vacations to such destinations
as the Bahamas.
Consequently, the Cable
Beach Resorts have had to cut
short the work week of
employees.
Mr Sands said in some cases
staff are now only working two
to three days a week.
He conceded that the hotels
have had to cut work hours by
more than they have had to
do in previous years.
At Atlantis, Mr Fields said
that "work hours are adjusted


on an ongoing basis, based'on
occupancy as per the industri-
al agreement."
As it concerns the near
future, Mr Sands said that
Bahamar is currently "re-fore-
casting" its occupancy levels
and will have new projections
by next week.
However, Mr Sands said
that Bahamar hopes to slowly
build on the occupancy num-
bers in the coming months.
He noted that occupancy
levels can always change
"overnight."

This man, it is reported, is required to sign these falsified

"These acts defrauded the government of thousands of
dollars and interfered with the system. National Insurance is
trying to keep this quiet, but Bahamians must know about
this 'highway robbery'," said another source.

Laing hits back over




Arawak Cay port claims


FROM page one
Responding aggressively to
comments made by Mr Moss
in a press conference a day ear-
lier, Minister of State Laing said
he was "spreading misinforma-
tion" and seeking to "breed
fear" wheh he made a connec-
tion between the involvement
of the Mediterranean Shipping
Company (MSC) in the port
relocation project and the EPA.
Calling Mr Moss' statements
"absolutely ridiculous," Mr
Laing said: "Our determina-
tions about the EPA has
absolutely nothing to do with
MSC or any company whatso-
ever, but I am not surprised
that Paul Moss has taken this
route, because after having
tried to convince straw vendors
that Europeans would compete
against them (if, an EPA were
signed) and having had that
buffeted, this new bogeyman
has now got to be pushed for-
ward.
"It is most regrettable that
Mr Moss finds himself having
to go to this place to try to sell
an argument which he is having
difficulty selling," he added.
Anti-free trade attorney and
contender for the PLP deputy
leadership, Mr Moss, spoke out
on Tuesday against what he
alleged is Government's deci-


sion to "side" with MSC's pro-
posal to develop the port over a
Bahamian one, saying it offered
a "snapshot of the future"
under an EPA.
He questioned what connec-
tion there may already be
between the alleged port move
and Government's favouring
of the EPA and urged the
Prime Minister to throw his
support behind the Bahamian

group that has also put in a bid
to develop the port, saying they
are capable and should be
offered the opportunity.
Under the EPA, which Gov-
ernment says it will sign in
October, European and
Caribbean countries will be
able to trade more freely in
goods and services with the
Bahamas and other CARI-
COM countries.
Government has submitted
its offer to Europe as to what
extent it is willing to further
open up certain service sectors
in the Bahamian economy to
European and Caribbean par-
ticipation and those which it
would wish to keep for Bahami-
ans only.
In some instances, this will
involve European or Caribbean
companies being able to bid for
contracts or "set up shop" in
the Bahamas to offer services
that they would previously have
been more restricted from
offering.
Mr Moss is against the EPA
in its totality, while Mr Laing
sees it as benefitting the
Bahamas overall.
However, Mr Laing said, "it
is fictious to believe that MSC
or any other international play-


er is coming.to the Bahamas
doing anything in relation to
the port because of an EPA."
He said that MSC has not
just recently arrived in the
country, but has been operating
here for eight years, while oth-
er international shipping com-
panies like Tropical and
Seaboard have been doing so
for decades, permitted as they
are according to the country's
investment policy,
The Minister added that he
finds it "interesting...that we try
to make foreigners bogeymen
when, so much of our
professional and our
collective income comes from
foreigners." *
He said the Bahamas is a
whole enjoys "a marvelous
standard of living" thanks to
the contributions of foreigners.
"And yet some of them
would use these same foreign-
ers as bogeymen, to scare
Bahamians into believing things
that are simply not true that
I ask Bahamians to look at very
carefully.
"I am reminded of a scrip-
ture that says 'fear is bondage.'
Any man who plays on your
fears does not respect your
freedom," said Mr Laing.

Mugabe urges West to lift sanctions


* By EDITH M. LEDERER
UNITED NATIONS
Zimbabwe's president hopes that a power-
sharing agreement with rivals will lead the
West to ease sanctions on his country, accord-
ing to the Associated Press.
In an interview with The Associated Press on
Wednesday, Robert Mugabe said he is close to
carrying out a political pact with opposition
leader Morgan Tsvangirai.


Mugabe said the last stages of talks are over
four Cabinet posts, but he added that there
are no serious obstacles that could scuttle the
deal.
Mugabe said the West should now begin
removing sanctions, including travel bans and
economic pressures that were tightened after
elections this spring that Mugabe is widely
accused of rigging.
The Zimbabwean president is scheduled to
speak Thursday to the U.N. General Assembly.

next door to him. Mr Munroe said that he had some three to four
conversations with the two men pertaining to the sale of the car. He
also testified that the brothers came to his residence inquiring
about the car on Friday, June 21, the day before prosecutors say
Mario Miller was killed.
Mr Munroe told the court that an agreement was made to sell the
car for a brick of cocaine. He told the court that he did not sell the
car until Sunday, June 23, which is when Ricardo Miller gave him.
the brick of cocaine. Mr Munroe told the court that at that time he
noticed a cut on Ricardo Miller's hand.
During cross-examination by Ryan Miller's lawyer, Romona
Farquharson, Mr Munroe told the court that he did not have time
to turn the vehicle over in Tainar Lee's name. However, after
being directed by Ms Farquharson to a statement he gave police on
July 2, 2002 he admitted that he had told police that he went to his
insurance company and turned the car over in the name of Tamar
Lee.
The trial, which is before Justice Stephen Isaacs, was adjourned
to Monday.
Following Mr Munroe's testimony Deputy Director of Public
Prosecutions Cheryl Grant-Bethel told the court that the Crown
intends to call three remaining witnesses before closing its case. She
noted that there were legal arguments to be made on points of law
in the absence of the jury.
Subpoenas were also issued yesterday for Donald Rolle and
Daryl Bartlett to appear before the court on Monday.
Brothers Ryan Miller and Ricardo Miller, alias Tamar Lee, are
accused of Mario Miller's murder. Miller, 28, was killed on June 22,
2002. His stabbed body was found in bushes near the Super Value
Food Store in Winton. Lawyer Romona Farquharson represents
Ryan Miller and Ricardo Miller is represented by lawyer Romauld
Ferreira. Deputy Director of Public Prosecutions Cheryl Grant-
Bethel, with Neil Brathwaite and Sean Adderley of the Attorney
General's Office appear for the Crown.

However a short time later,
she said, the caller flew into a
rage, and it was here she said,
that she felt it was .in her'best
interest to report the matter to
the police.
"He basically said it is all his
money, and between God, and
himself he would insure that I
have a vicious death," said Ms
Bartlett.
On the advice of her lawyer,
Ms Bartlett has taken precau-
tionary measures to protect her-
self and has gone to the extent
of "adjusting her day-to-day
movements."
Beyond this, however, she
had no further comment.
"But yes, I have had to take
precautionary measures," she
said.
According to high level police
sources, the report was made at
the Wulff Road Police
Station and is actively


being investigated.
Mr Miller was recently
acquitted of sexual harassment
charges that were brought
against him by a former female
employee of GEM's 105.9FM.
Calling the charges a complete
fabrication, Mr Miller said that
the charges had more to do with
moneys that were owed to him
and a position he took against
"sissyism" in the Bahamas.
"This exercise was like a
witch hunt and it ain't had noth-
ing to do with sexual harass-
ment. Absolutely nothing. It
had to do with moneys that
were owed to me that they
refused to pay.
"GEMS owes me a lot of
money and God knows I need
it. I ain't work in 18 months, get
my money ready, I coming, Mr
Miller said at a press conference
earlier this month.
GEM's 105.9FM vill hold a
press conference today at 2pm
to make a statement on the mat-
ter.

* TAESUNGDONG,
South Korea
INSIDE the barbed-wire walls
of Korea's Demilitarized Zone,
schoolchildren in the hamlet
known as "Freedom Village"
competed Tuesday in foot races
and showed off their traditional
drumming skills, according to the
Associated Press.
Taesungdong Elementary
School opened up its schoolyard
to guests on Sports Day, offering
outsiders a rare glimpse intolife
inside the world's most heavily
armed Demilitarized Zone.
Just 1 1/2 miles away, across a
field of rice paddies, North Kore-
.a's DMZ village of Kijongdong
was quiet, with few signs of life in
apartment blocks as empty as an
abandoned movie set.
The Demilitarized Zone
bisecting the Korean peninsula
was created in 1953 when the
three-year conflict between north
and south a bloody, protract-
ed war that claimed millions of
lives ended in an armistice.
Running from coast to coast, the
buffer zone is 250 miles long and
just 2 1/2 miles wide.
Each side was allowed to keep
a showcase town. Villagers from
the farming community of Tae-
sungdong stayed put, under strict
conditions: Soldiers carry out a
daily head count and residents
must be home by 11 p.m. But
there are perks. The men are
exempt from South Korea's mil-
itary service and Taesungdong
families don't pay rent or tax.
Today, the town has just 198
inhabitants, all pre-Korean War
residents and their descendants.
The only outsiders allowed to
stay are the % i\i e of Taesung-
dong men. Daughters who mar-
ry outsiders must leave, Mayor
Kim Dong-hyun said.
The verdant, yellow-green rice
paddies look like those that dot
the countryside across South
Korea but with a backdrop of
barbed wire. The village has a
church, an elementary school,
restaurants and a few dozen


Soldiers guard and teach

students at school in DMZ


homes. But its most famous fea-
ture is the 330-foot-tall flagpole
overlooking the schoolyard, built
in the 1980s.
Not to be outdone, North'
Korea built an even bigger one.
At 525 feet high, the flagpole is
one of the world's tallest.
Viewed through a telescope,
Kijongdong known in the
North as "Peace Village" and in
the South as "Propaganda Vil-
lage" appeared nearly lifeless
Tuesday. The rows of two- and
three-story concrete apartment
blocks with their sky-blue roofs
looked empty.
Two people were spotted sit-
ting by the fields, another riding
a bicycle, but there was no sign of
farmers.
On the southern side, Tae-
sungdong's farmers grow prized
organic ric ne.reens beans and
chili peppers in the shadow of
the military and North Korea's


towering flagpole. Villagers are
well aware they are in a danger
zone.
"They feel it. They can see
it," said Lt. Col. John Rhodes,
the American commander of
the United Nations Command
Security Battalion-Joint Secu-
rity Area. "They can see KPA
(Korean People's Army) sol-
diers (from North Korea) when
they're out in the fields farm-
ing."
Recent speculation about the
health of North Korea's Stalin-
ist leader, Kim Jong II, has
trained even more eyes on the
border. The 66-year-old leader
has not been seen in public in
more than a month, and South
Korean and U.S. officials say
he suffered a stroke. Some fear
if Kim dies with no named suc-
cessor, the regime could col-
lapjse, sending-hordes of North
Koreans fleeing.

SPAIN'S MISSING


...L,,, ,.


a ,./* e^Ba^ -


A WORKER measures a human skeleton in a mass grave in San Rafael cemetery in Malaga, Spain, Sunday, Sept. 21, 2008. At the start of the
1936-39 war, Malaga became one of many execution grounds for perceived opponents of Francisco Franco, the army general who unleashed the
conflict by rising up against the elected, leftist Republican government. One of them was perhaps the war's most famous victim, Federico Garcia
Lorca, widely considered Spain's best 20th century poet and playwright. Garcia Lorca, was shot along with a school teacher named Dioscoro
Galindo Gonzalez and two labor union activists Francisco Galadi and Juan Arcolla on Aug. 18, 1936 in nearby Viznar. For years, the poet's
descendants blocked requests by the Galindo and Galadi families to open up the grave. Tired of waiting, Galindo and Galadi relatives took their
case to crusading investigative magistrate Baltasar Garzon, who had recently begun a probe into what are essentially Spain's missing ones.


Sun's wind and output on


extended dimmer switch


* WASHINGTON


THE SUN has dialed back its
furnace to the lowest levels seen
in the space age, new measure-
ments from a space probe show,
according to the Associated
Press.
But don't worry it's too
small a difference to change life
on Earth, scientists said Tues-
day. In fact, it means satellites
can stay in orbit a little longer.
The solar wind a stream of
charged particles ejected from
the sun's upper atmosphere at
1 million miles per hour is
significantly weaker, cooler and
less dense than it has been in 50
years, according to new data
from the NASA-European solar
probe Ulysses.
And for the first time in about
a century, the sun went for two
months this summer without
sunspots, said NASA solar


physicist David IHathaway. That
record was broken Monday
when a cluster of eight sunspots
surfaced. Sunspots are tempo-
rary regions of high magnetic
activity that from Earth appear
to be black splotches.
The cause for the sun's slight
weakening seems to be a change
in its magnetic flux, said Dave
McComas of the Southwest
Research Institute. Why it's hap-
pening is a mystery, but it has
fluctuated like this in the past.
Weaker solar winds mean less
drag on satellites so they can stay
in orbit a bit longer. While that's
good for satellites, it also means
more space junk.
Normally the sun goes
through an 11-year cycle of
more, then fewer, sunspots and a
similar cycle when it comes to
solar wind strength. But scien-
tists said Tuesday the sun is in "a
very prolonged minimum."

Student arsenal


* NOIRRISTOWN, Pa.
A WOMAN admitted she
helped her troubled, bullied 14-
year-old son build a weapons
cache by buying a rifle and gun-
powder, but investigators still
don't know if she was aware her
son was planning a deadly school
attack, according to the Associ-
ated Press.
Michele Cossey, 46, pleaded
guilty Tuesday in Montgomery
County Court to one count of
child endangerment. She admit-
ted that she gave her son access
to a rifle with a laser scope and
gunpowder, which investigators
said he was using to build
grenades.
Prosecutors said her son, Dil-
lon, came to idolize the
Columbine High School shoot-
ers and was planning an attack
last year on Plymouth
Whitemarsh High School, which
some former schoolmates
attended: -
mmmmmamammum ar.


Pa. mom admits helping

son build weapons cache


Cossey, bullied over his
weight, had left public school in
seventh grade and was being
home-schooled. Over time, vio-
lent Internet sites fueled his
revenge fantasies, his defense
lawyer said after his juvenile
court plea.
Montgomery County Assis-
tant District Attorney Christo-
pher Parisi said he thought pur-
chasing the weapons was "an
attempt to boost his self-esteem,
and in some way help the child,
as misplaced as those thoughts
may have been."
Michelle Cossey's sentencing
won't occur for at least three
months until a psychiatric eval-
uation is completed. The maxi-
naum possible.prison tefm is 3
1/2 to 7-years, but her defense


attorney she could get less than a
year or even just probation
- under sentencing guidelines.
Parisi said he doesn't know if
Cossey knew about her son's
attack plans, but that he hopes to
learn that before sentencing.
"If it were to come out that
she knew he was planning an
attack ... that would certainly
increase the severity of the
crime." he said.
The judge who sentenced Dil-
lon Cossey to a juvenile treat-
ment facility, where he could
remain until his 21st birthday,
said that Michele Cossey had
fostered a "me-and-mom-
against-the-world" attitude in
her only child.
Authorities did not think the
school attack was imminent, but


the boy did amass an arsenal -
knives, swords, BB guns, the
rifle and partly assembled home-
made grenades in his bed-
room at his Plymouth Township
home. Police learned of the
planned attack when Cossey
invited a friend to join him. The
friend went to police last fall.
The boy's father, Frank, sat
beside his wife as she entered
the plea. He had tried to buy
their son a rifle in 2005, but was
stymied by a prior felony con-
viction, which he failed to note
on the application. The omis-
sion led to a house arrest sen-
tence fdr lying about his criminal
record.
Michelle Cossey has had
twice-a-month supervised visits
with her son, is missing him and
wants him back home, defense
lawyer Tim Woodward said.
"Her ultimate goal is to be
reunited with her son," the
attorney said. "She does admit.
that she made some mistakes."

' U MILAN, Italy
MIUCCIA PRADA is often a step ahead of
'- the pack, so it was no wonder that her latest col-
o election had little to do with what has been going
on the Milan runway: easy dressing in light and
airy styles, according to the Associated Press.
Her collection shown Tuesday was indeed
light she's into flesh-baring these days -
but certainly not easy to wear or walk in.
Several models tottered and fell on the fish-
decorated runway, as they slipped out of their
ultrahigh-heeled platform sandals strapped at
the ankle. Many finished their catwalk shoes
in hand.
The latest Prada collection is divided into
categories from bra tops to dresses in python
and fish prints, to variations of the old-fash-
i' oned night gown, to gilded evening wear. To
underline the potpourri feel, all the models
walked up and down the runway at the same
.'Z time, creating the effect of a fashion kaleido-
'.* scope.
S" Prada topped a long list of shows on the sec-
ond day of the Milan fashion week that runs
,- through Friday, including Jil Sander, Bottega
Veneta, and Moschind.

PRADA
The only "easy" item in the new Prada collec-
tion is the latest Prada bag a simple leather
clutch.
The bra top, an item that could never have
shown up at Prada a decade ago, is worn with an
off-the-shoulder jacket and below-the-knee skirt
with lingerie velvet detailing, all in shimmering
silk. The favorite style for the silk reptile and
.' *- seashore prints is an overly loose sheath. The
T. nightie dresses come in various fabrics and are
S.strictly off-white, like clothes stashed away in a
trunk.
A series of wooly tops worn over a flared
miniskirt brings the collection back to our days,
-. ; only to lose it to the future in cosmic gilded gowns.

?; ',, JIL SANDER
Raf Simons for Jil Sander stripped minimalist
of its stiffness and livened up the staid Jil Sander
label with soft contours and fringes.
The Belgian-born designer who took over at
Jil Sander in 2005 managed to create floating,
airy styles while maintaining the strict contours
and conservative shades of minimalist fashion.
Some examples: the back of a classic jacket is
elegantly draped or cut out. Sleeves are slit
open to turn into free-flowirrg panels, and ver-
tical slashes on coats result in decorative loop
panels.
The biggest news is that Simons managed to
take the frill out of fringe and uplift the silky
strand to minimalist fashion heights. Each strand
was embroidered separately onto a dress, coat
or even a hand bag. The yesteryear lampshade
effect worked especially well for inserts in dress-

es and jackets, lending extra softness.

BOTTEGA VENETA
Whatever the season or the mood, Thomas
Meier, the German designer at Bottega Veneta
offers chic styles with a modern touch.
Picking up on next summer's easy-to-wear
fashion, his collection includes ultra-soft leather
wear, jersey skirts and tops, striped linen
pantsuits, and delicately patterned silk shirt
dresses. Sure to be a summer hit is the wide
basket skirt worn with a simple sleeveless blouse
reminiscent of the look favored by Audrey Hep-
burn in the classic film 'Roman Holiday.'

* ELDORADO, Texas
A WEST Texas grand jury
investigating allegations that
members of a polygamist sect
sexually abused girls indicted
three more people Tuesday,
raising the number of defen-
dants in the case to nine, accord-
ing to thi Associatdl Press.
Each of the sect members
indicted Tuesday by the Schle-
icher County grand jury was
charged with sexual assault of a
child, and two face an addition-
al charge of bigamy, state Attor-
ney General Greg Abbott said
in a statement. Abbott's office
has taken over prosecution of
the case from local authorities in
the tiny county.
The names of those charged
were not immediately released,
but none had been charged pre-
viously. The grand jury earlier
had indicted six other members
of the Fundamentalist Church
of Jesus Christ of Latter Day
Saints, including jailed sect
leader Warren Jeffs.
The grand jury has now met
three times to consider evidence
against residents of the Yearn-
ing For Zion Ranch. which is
run bv the FLDS, a breakaway
Mormon sect.
All but one of those indicted
has been charged with sexual
abuse of a child, and some also
have been charged with bigamy.
The sect's doctor has been
charged only with three misde-
meanor counts of failure to


report child abuse.
Authorities raided the YFZ
Ranch in-April looking for evi-
dence of underage marriages
and abuse involving sect girls.
Texas child welfare authorities
initially put all 440 children at
the ranch in foster care but were
forced to return them by a
Texas Supreme Court ruling
that found evidence showed
abuse in only a handful of cases.
Grand jury proceedings are
secret, but numerous docu-
ments and photos disclosed as
part of a separate child custody
case show girls, some as young
as 12, purportedly married to
middle-aged men.
Generally under Texas law,
no one younger than 17 can
consent to sex with an adult.
The state's bigamy statute
includes prohibitions against
legally marrying or even pur-
porting to marry more than one
person. Many of the FLDS
unions are so-called "spiritual"
marriages. unions blessed by the
church but with no legal record.
The FLDS believes polygamy
brings glorification in heaven.
The Mormon church, the
Church of Jesus Christ of Lat-
ter-day Saints, renounced
polygamy more than a century
ago.
Jeffs, convicted in Utah last
year as an accomplice to rape
ior the marriage of a 14-year-
old girl t'o her older cousin.
awaits trial in Arizona on simi-
lar charges.

US soldiers

accidentally

kill Sunni

leader in Iraq

* BAGHDAD

AMERICAN soldiers acci-
dentally shot and killed the
leader of a local U.S.-allied
Sunni group Tuesday after
coming under attack in a
volatile area north of Bagh-
dad, the military said, accord-
ing to the Associated Press.
The shooting comes a week
before the Shiite-led Iraqi
government begins to assume
authority over the Sunni
groups known as the Sons of
Iraq, or Awakening Councils.
The military has credited the
Sunni revolt against al-Qaida
in Iraq as a key factor in the
sharp decline in violence over
the past year.
The head of the group in
Siniyah, Jassim al-Garrout,
was killed after he rushed to
the site of an ambush against
U.S. forces in the area, which
lies between the northern oil-
hub of Beiji and Saddam Hus-
sein's hometown of Tikrit,
according to witnesses and
police.
One of al-Garrout's com-
rades said the group would
demand an apology from the
Americans.
"The Awakening Councils
have become targets of al-
Qaida, the government and
sometimes even the U.S.
forces. We do not know our
fate and we are feeling lost,"
Farooq Sami said.
"We are undertaking the
task of combating terrorists,
yet we are left sometimes
unpaid and without money.
We have participated in main-
taining peace and security in
our area, yet we sometimes
do not get our salaries."
Lt. Gen. Lloyd Austin, the
No. 2 U.S. commander in
Iraq, said Monday that the
Iraqi government will begin
next week paying the salaries
of about 54,000 of the mostly
Sunni fighters in the province
surrounding Baghdad.
In Tuesday's incident, the
U.S. soldiers were hunting for
insurgents and weapons after
they were hit by a roadside
bomb and small-arms fire
near Siniyah, 110 miles north-
west of Baghdad, according
to an e-mailed military state-
ment.
The troops then came
under fire while searching a
house and "shot a Sons of
Iraq leader who was mistaken
for the enemy when he
entered the house," said Navy
Lt. Cmdr. David Russell, a
U.S. military spokesman in
Baghdad. Medical aid was
administered, the military
said, but the troops were
unable to save al-Garrout.
Russell said the U.S. sol-
diers had warned their Sunni
allies to identify themselves
and to stay clear of the house.
Separately, an American
soldier was shot to death
Tuesday in an attack about 15
miles southeast of Baghdad,
the military said.


Hebrew University in Jerusalem/AP Photo
IN THIS undated photo made available by the Hebrew University in Jerusalem on Monday, Sept. 22, 2008, an unidentified man adjust a telescope
that once belonged to Albert Einstein, at the Givat Ram campus of the Hebrew University in Jerusalem. Students and visitors at the Hebrew Uni-
versity in Jerusalem will be able to look at the stars through Albert Einstein's long lost telescope starting Thursday university officials said, after it
was retrieved from a storage shed and renovated.



Long-lost Einstein telescope


* JERUSALEM

ALBERT EINSTEIN'S long-
lost telescope, forgotten for
decades in a Jerusalem storage
shed, goes on display this week
after three years and $10,000 spent
restoring the relic, according to the
Associated Press.
The old reflecting telescope is
cumbersome by modern stan-
dards, but a demonstration for
The Associated Press showed it
still works well enough to see five
of Jupiter's moons and stripes on
the surface of the huge planet.
The legendary physicist who
famously theorized relations
among energy, speed and mass
received the telescope in 1954, tihe
year before he died. It was a gift
from a friend named Zvi Gizeri,
who probably made it himself,
said officials at the Hebrew Uni-
versity in Jerusalem where the
public will be able to view the tele-
scope starting Thursday.
Einstein, who was a co-founder
of the Hebrew University, willed
his records to the school. There
were rumors through the years
that he also left a telescope, but it
took modern sleuthing and some
luck to find it.
The long black tube about eight
inches in diameter and 6 feet long
stands on a base experts say may


Forgotten telescope was sitting

in a Jerusalem storage shed


have been taken from the German
army. It was this unique base, rec-
ognizable in a picture of Einstein
with the telescope, and a signature
from Gizeri on one of its miniors.,
that confirmed its authenticity in
2004. when a biologist named
Eshel Ophir made the connection.
The forgotten telescope was first
discovered in a storage shed in the
late 1990s by a computer specialist
at the Hebrew University. But he
did not recognize it as Einstein's,
and left it in the shed.
Ophir made the connection by
accident, initially mistaking anoth-
er forgotten telescope for the
famous physicist's. After searching
through the archives and photos,
Ophir realized the real Einstein
telescope was actually the one his
colleague, had found unceremoni-
ously years earlier.
Ophir said he immediately took
the telescope to the university's
Meyerhoff Youth Center, where
he was serving as director, to pro-
tect and clean it.
With the exception of a new
eyepiece, the rest of the device,
from lenses to optics, is original.
It is unlikely, though, that a the-


oretician like Einstein, who won a
Nobel Prize in 1921 for his theory
of relativity, would have had
much use for a telescope in his
work.
"I don't think anybody investi-
gated Einstein's star-gazing
habits," said Dvora Lang, the cur-
rent director of the Meyerhoff
Youth Center. "But it was for his
pleasure, not for his work."
The telescope goes on display
Thursday at the Meyerhoff center
in conjunction with Researchers
Day, when schools across Europe
and Israel will open their labora-
tory doors to the public.
iThe newly unveiled telescope
will not be housed with the rest of
Einstein's documents at the Jew-
ish National and University
Library but will remain in the
Meyerhoff center for use by stu-
dents.
Lang said she hoped by looking
into the telescope of one of the
greatest scientists of the 20th cen-
tury, a new generation of Israeli
children would be inspired to
learn more about science.
"This is setting them on fire."
she said.

o In brief


Winter,

repairs stall

atom smasher

until spring
* GENEVA
SCIENTISTS will have to
wait until spring to use the
world's biggest particle col-
lider for groundbreaking
research because repairs to
damage will run into the lab-
oratory's normal winter shut-
down, the operators said
Tuesday, according to the
Associated Press.
The European Organiza-
tion for Nuclear Research
earlier said'an electrical fail-
ure Friday, nine days after
the collider was first started,
released a large amount of
liquid helium into the tun-
nel.
Experts have gone into the
17-mile circular tunnel hous-
ing the Large Hadron Col-
lider to check on damage
caused when an electrical
connection between two
magnets apparently melted,
said James Gillies,
spokesman for the organiza-
tion, which is known as
CERN.
But they have to wait sev-
eral weiks before the tem-
perature can he raised from
near absolute zero so they
can actually go inside the
equipment and fully assess
the damage, Gillies said.
"They're going to have to
open up and really investi-
gate what went on there," he
said. "So that's going to be
two'or three weeks before we
can put out something that
we're sure of."
But he added it is clear at
least two months will be
needed for the whole proce-
dure, including the rechilling
of equipment to obtain the
"superconducting" properties
needed to send subatomic
particles streaming through
the collider in beams that can
be collided for studies.
That would go past the
shutdown already scheduled
for CERN's facility to begin
its winter break. It usually.
shuts in mid-November and
resumes at the end of March
or early April. to avoid its
heavy use of electricity dur-
ing the winter months when
Europe has high demand for
power.
"We are not going to be
done Nwith this before the
winter shutdown, so there
will be no more beam in the
LHC this year." Gillies told
The Associated Press. "The
winter shutdown will go
according to schedule, which
means that r we start up the
accelerator complex in the
spring months."
The Large Hadron Collid-
er was built to enable physi-
cists to crash beams of pro-
tons into each other to study
the tiniest subatomic parti-
cles that were first created
after the "big bang." which
many theorize was the mas-
sive explosion that formed all
matter.

Kakuro Puzzle


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

HAGAR THE HORRIBLE


Chess


R 10




A I C D E C H


Ivan Radulov v Bent Soderborg,
Bulgaria v Sweden, world students
olympiad, Helsinki 1961. White (to
move) has built up an impressive
attack with queen, rook, both
bishops and the h4 pawn within
range of Black's castled king.
The special point to note for
when you start your own attacks
is that the rook has joined the
action via h3, instead of a routine


central placement. White's attack
is overwhelming, and a precise
three-move sequence forced Black
to resign in the face of immediate
checkmate, Experienced solvers will
probably find the first two choices
quite easily, but the third requires
visual imagination. Can you spot
White's winning series?
Otes 8679; 1 Rxg7 Kxg7 2 Qg4*+ K98 and now 3 Qg5?
Rg is unclear but eiher 3 hS! or 3 Qe4I exposing
b6ck's pinned knight, wins at once.

Tuesday to crack down on a milk-gathering system that was "out of control", after tainted baby formula
sickened nearly 53,000 Chinese infants and left four dead.

THE Bahamas Electricity
Corporation (BEC) has
reduced non-technical loss-
es, including electricity
'theft', to around 5-6 per
cent of its annual revenues
and "maybe even legs than
that", its general manager
told Tribune Business yes-
terday, adding that they
were "nowhere near" the
level projected by a former
chairman.
Kevin Basden, disputing
non-technical loss figures
given to Tribune Business
by former Corporation
chairman Al Jarrett, said
that'during the'2002- 005
period when the latter held
his post, it was estimated
that losses relating to theft
were in the $5-$8 million
range annually.
However, Mr Jarrett was
yesterday sticking to his
guns in response to a Min-
istry of Environment/BEC
press release that criticized
his figures on non-technical
losses as "misleading".
The former chairman told
Tribune Business yesterday
that Caribbean electricity
provider standards showed
that non-technical losses in
the region averaged 8-10 per
cent of revenues per annum,
with Jamaica the worst.
While Mr Jarrett said
BEC was better than the
Caribbean average during
his tenure, losing between
6.5 per cent to 7.5 per cent
of its per annum revenues
to non-technical losses, this
still amounted to "anywhere
from $14 million to $20 mil-
lion-plus "depending on
how revenue the Corpora-

.inouncing who those persons are. I'm talking
to two very significant groups."
Mr Stein said some $175 million in capi-
talised investment had been put into the South
Ocean redevelopment to date, adding: "We're
spending money every day, and lots of it. I still
love the Bahamas and want to be part of it for
a long time.
"We have 60 Bahamians employed on a
full-time basis, and are doing infrastructure
work on site. We have done a whole bunch of


beach surveys and studies that have just been
completed, because we intend to fix the beach.
"We're doing a tree relocation programme,
so that we can preserve all the natural vege-
tation and save. We're about to demolish the
existing hotel buildings, are doing site clear-
ance and have fenced in the site. We're estab-
lishing our office presence, and it should be
open in the next 30 days.

SOUTH OCEAN'S developer yesterday
told Tribune Business he was still fully com-
mitted to the project with $175 million invest-
ed in it to date, although the credit crunch
and Wall Street meltdown meant progress
was "cautious" and the development "may
be structured a little dittlerLl ".
Roger Stein, managing director of RHS
Ventures, the lead developer of the south-
western New Providence project, said: "We're
proceeding cautiously in consideration of what
is going on in the world. It's more of a cautious
progress.
"The project may be structured a little dif-
ferently from the way we planned, but Imn
fully committed to continuing with this. We
still had 10 written proposals for luxury hotel
operators. We've whittled that down to a cou-
ple of people, and are willing close to


'Insular' focus hits Bahamas

firms' ability to compete


* By NEIL HARTNELL
Tribune Business Editor
A "PROTECTIONIST
MINDSET" and the exchange
control regime have acted as
barriers preventing Bahami-
an companies from expand-
ing into the Caribbean, a
Bahamas-based financial exec-
utive told Tribune Business
yesterday, a development that
has placed them at a compet-
itive disadvantage.
Recalling a presentation he
gave on the issue to the
Bahamas Institute of Char-
tered Accountants (BICA)
conference last year, David
Slatter, a KPMG Corporate
Finance (Bahamas) executive.
said the exchange control
regime was "a big part" of the
reason why few Bahamians
firms had looked to expand
regionally.
The relative ease with which
Caribbean companies have
been able to enter the
Bahamian market through
strategic acquisitions, com-
pared to the few Bahamas-
based firms that have expand-
ed into the region, was again
exposed last week when the
Destinations travel agency was
purchased by the Barbados-
based Caribbean World Trav-
el Services group.
"It is a lot easier for a firm
in Barbados, Trinidad to get
access to global capital that
allows them to expand," Mr
Slatter explained. "It's a lot
more difficult, and in some
cases not possible, to do it in
the Bahamas. Exchange con-
trol is a key factor."
According to the Central
Bank's website, a 12.5 per cent
premium has to be paid on
foreign currency being
acquired for investment pur-
poses abroad, with a 10 per
cent premium charged on cur-
rency being repatriated.
Meanwhile, Mr Slatter said
that Barbadian, Trinidadian
and other Caribbean compa-
nies had a greater tendency to
look outwards when it came
to seeking growth opportuni-
ties, whereas Bahamian firms
often looked inwards.
"We've always had this pro-
tectionist mindset and policies
to protect our industries," Mr
Slatter said, adding that there
was "this fear of competition
with the external world".
It would be incorrect to say
Bahamas-domiciled compa-
nies have not expanded
beyond this nation's borders.
Bank of the Bahamas Inter-
national has opened a Miami
branch and is looking at part-


nerships with two other
Caribbean financial institu-
tions:. Fidelity Bank & Tfust
International has branches in
the C:iymain Islands, Turks)&
Caicos and Barbados (the lat-
ter following the acquisition
of a Royal Bank unit as part
of a wider transaction); and
Colinalmperial Insurance
Company inherited a Cayman
book of insurance policies fol-
l, ini; its Canada Life pur-
chase.

BFSB launches top


COB student search


THE Bahamas Financial
Services Board (BFSB) has
launched the process to
recognize an outstanding
2008 graduate from within
the School of Business, Col-
lege of the Bahamas (COB).
The selection criterion was
based on academic perfor-
mance as demonstrated by


GPA. Additional criteria
include COB and communi-
ty involvement, special inter-
ests, further education and
work/other experience.
This initiative has been a
joint venture between BFSB,
COB and the Central Bank
of the Bahamas since 2002,
with the co-ordinating and
selection committees featur-
ing representatives from the
three sponsoring agencies
plus the Professional Indus-
try Association Working
Group (PIAWG) a repre-
sentative body for the vari-
ous financial services asso-
ciations here in the
Bahamas.
The Student Award pro-


gramme is an integral com-
ponent of BFSB's ongoing
Financial Centre Focus
(FCF) programme, which
addresses issues such as chal-
lenges impacting the sus-
tained growth and develop-
ment of the industry;
improvements to the level of
service; and attracting and
retaining qualified profes-
sionals.
The Selection Committee
has just completed its final
interview with the students,
with five finalists to be
announced shortly. The 'Stu-
dent of the Year' will be
recognized at BFSB's annu-
al FSI Excellence Awards
Banquet on October 25.

THE TRIBUNE


Thursday closures to




become a 'Tradition'


* By CARA
BRENNEN-BETHEL
Tribune Business
Reporter
TRADITIONS furniture
store has made the "conve-
nient and practical" deci-
sion to close on Thursdays
in an effort to save electric-
ity and operating costs by
ensuring the entire staff
take the same day off.
The store's owner, Jimmy
Klonaris, told Tribune Busi-
ness .that because Thursdays
were the slowest days for
sales and staff with just
himself and two employees
manning the store it was
practical and convenient to
give all the employees the
day off and close.
"This way we can save on
the electricity and expenses.
We aren't losing any mon-
ey, because that is a slow
day anyway, so customers
can come in on Friday or
Wednesday," he explained.
Mr Klonaris said he, like
other businessmen being
impacted by increasing
BEC fuel surcharges, oper-
ational costs and slower
sales, had to come up with
creative measures to ensure
he did not have to close his
doors.
"This is just something
that I have to do. Some
people are closing stores. I
don't want to do that, so
this is something that I can
do,that is not that big of a
deal, but will make a dif-
ference. It is not intended
to be permanent, it is just
until the economy
improves," Mr Klonaris
said.
The decision comes on
the heels of the massive
roadworks which were tak-
ing place in the Hawkins


Hill area last month, which
Mr Klonaris said "crippled"
his business. The roadworks
caused the road to be
closed and hampered cus-
tomers getting to the store.
As a result, Mr Klonaris
said he was forced to let
three employees go. His
weekday sales dropped
between 30-50 per cent, he
had trouble meeting his
interest payments and BEC
was about to shut him off.
Further, he said that during
the period, he had six con-
secutive Saturdays where he


failed to make a single sale,
he told Tribune Business at
the time
"Theyare done the road
works now, but are still lin-
gering on the final clean-
up," he said.
In an effort to further
recover from that economic
challenge, the store will for
the first time be having a
60 per cent off storewide
sale at the weekend.
"Th;s is something big.
I've never done this before,
but I have bills I need to
pay," Mr Klonaris said.

tion earned in a year.
I however, Mr Basden told
Tribune Business that the
Automatic Meter Reading
(AMR) inilialive imple-
niented for residential cus-
tomers by 3BEC, coupled with
the creation of teams to
check on commercial
accounts, had stemmed non-
technical losses.
"There's been an improve-
ment in the area of non-tech-
nical losses," Mr Basden told
Tribune Business. "We do
have a substantive pro-
gramme in place to deal with
non-technical issues, and
we've been able to substan-
tially reduce that [losses].
"We've been able to
reduce it to around the 5-6
per cent mark, maybe even
less than that. We're review-
ing that right now, as we
review it periodically."
When asked about Mr Jar-
rett's estimates, Mr Basden
said the figure for non-tech-
nical losses was "nowhere in
that range". He described the
$14-$20 million-pilus estimate
as "an inflated figure".
"At that time [of Mr Jar-
rett's chairmanship], we'd
estimated it to be in the vicin-
ity of $5-$6 million," Mr Bas-
den said of non-technical
losses. To be in a more accu-
rate range, it was probably
$5-$8 million, and we've been
able to substantially reduce
that."


BEC electrical \

'theft' losses just

5-6% of revenues


The BEC general manag-
er said that "substantially one
customer was the single
biggest perpetrator" of non-
technical losses, namely the
one who owed the Corpora-
tion some $3 million for 'free
electricity'.
Mr Basden confirmed that
the matter had been dealt
with, and BEC had recovered
almost all the sums owed to
it. As a result, the Corpora-
tion had implemented pro-
grammes to periodically
check large commercial
accounts, an initiative Mr Jar-
rett yesterday said was begun
under his chairmanship.
Mr Basden said BE( was
"beefing up" its initiatives to
combat electricity theft, and
would soon embark on
another round o0.f meter
resealing to ensure customers
could not tamper with their
meters in such a way as to
under-report their energy
usage.
When it came to technical
losses, Mr Basden said BEC('
again compared favourably
against international stan-
dards. The Corporation aver-
aged between 8-10 per cent
of revenues per annum in

"We are building more of a presence. not less of a presence. We will
persevere through this crisis, and come out of this as winners on the oth-
er side."
Mr Stein said demolition of the former South Ocean Golf & Beach
Resort should take place either before the end of this year or shortly
after the 2009 New Year.
"A number of things have to be moved before we do the demolition,"
Mr Stein said. chief among them all the trees, which would be replant-
ed in a new nursery. In addition, beach surveyors were currently doing
work to assess the impact oh the beach from demolishing the former
South Ocean timeshare properties that now line it.
This would determine "how far down we go and cut relative to the
demolition", Mr Stein explained.
The global credit/liquidity crunch had made it "more challenging" for
real estate projects such as South Ocean to obtain debt financing either
at all or on the right terms and interest rate.
The uncertainty caused by the Wall Street meltdown had exacerbated
the situation, Mr Stein said. as while "there's a ton of equity eashI
floating around, a lot of equity funds are sitting on the fence not
knowing what to do".
While equity investors were plentiful. the difficulty projects w\\ere ha\-
ing in obtaining debt financing was making them reluctant to commit
funds themselves, as they did not want to tie down capital in invest-
ments that did not progress and deliver the anticipated rate of return.
"Hopefully for all of us we come out of this sooner rather than lat-
er," Mr Stein said of the latest economic cycle. "I still love the island
and the opportunity to be in the Bahamas.
"I've put up a significant amount of equity myself. I have many
millions of dollars invested in this. I's not a fee developer, who puts up
$2-$3 million and looks elsewhere for funding."
The South Ocean redevelopment was originally scheduled to include
a 140-room five-star resort: 400-room four-star resort: a 40,000 sqIuare
foot casino: fractional villas: 180 timeshare units: second homes: a;
convention centre; marina: tennis facilities and spa.
The draft economic impact study for the South Ocean project pro-
jected that it would create 1,358 full-time jobs when fully open. plus
1,200 construction jobs.

technical losses, and for 2008
was likely to better this with
a 7 per cent rating.
These figures were again
substantially below those
advanced by Mr Jarrett, who
said that in 2000, BEC lost a
sum equivalent to 14.5 per
cent of its revenues in tech-
nical losses.
The former BEC chairman
said yesterday that according
to the records which he had
kept, in 2001 this percentage
increased to 15.1 per cent; in
2002 it was 14.9 per cent; in
2003, 13.8 per cent; in 2004,
14.4 per cent; and in 2005
14.3 per cent.


Mr Jarrett's figures were
far higher than those pre-
sented by Mr Basden, who
said: "We are well within tie
standards in terms of [tech-
nical losses]. Here in New
Providence, we're pretty
good at that."
However, technical losses
which occur in all electrical
generation and distribution
systems, when transformers
and cables are energised and
power is relayed from the
power station to customers -
were higher in the Family
Islands because BEC's trans-
mission lines were longer to
take power to remote settle-
ments.
Amid his concerns, Mr Jar-
rett said he had "great
respect" for Dr Earl
Deveaux, minister of the
environment, who has ulti-
mate responsibility for BEC,
who had "a hard job to
do".

Sarah Palin: another Great
Depression could be in store
* NEW YORK
Associated Press
REPUBLICAN vice presidential candidate Sarah Palin said
Wednesday that the United States could be headed for another
Great Depression if Congress doesn't act on the financial crisis.
Palin made the comment in an interview with CBS evening
news anchor Katie Couric while visiting New York to meet for-
eign leaders for the first time in her political career. As Palin
sought to establish her credentials in world affairs, first lady
Laura Bush said that Palin lacked sufficient foreign policy expe-
rience but was "a quick study."
Recent surveys have shown that Palin's popularity, while still
strong, has begun to fade.
Earlier this month, an Associated Press-Yahoo News poll
showed more people viewing Palin favorably than unfavorably,
47 percent to 28 percent. But an ABC News-Washington Post
poll released Wednesday showed that in a two-week period, the
number seeing Palin positively dropped 6 percentage points
while 10 points more see her unfavorably. On Monday, a CNN-
Opinion Research Corp. poll said her favorable rating dropped
4 points and her unfavorable rating rose 8 points over two
weeks.
Palin has been in New York this week for a series of meetings
with foreign leaders, part of an effort by Republican John
McCain's presidential campaign to counter criticism that the
former small-town mayor lacks the experience to be vice presi-
dent, let alone president in an emergency.
The CBS interview was just her third major interview in near-
ly four weeks on the GOP presidential ticket. Asked whether
there's a risk of another Great Depression if Congress doesn't
approve a $700 billion bailout package, Palin said, "Unfortu-
nately, that is the road that America may find itself on."
Palin said the answer to the financial crisis doesn't necessarily
have to be the bailout plan that the Bush administration has
proposed, but that it should be some form of bipartisan action
to reform Wall Street.

Review of downtown


masterplan rescheduled


* By NEIL HARTNELL
Tribune Business
Editor
A CABINET meeting that
was last week due to approve
the Masterplan for the rede-
velopment of the core city of
Nassau was postponed due to
the need to deal with Hurri-
cane Ike's impact on Inagua,
Tribune Business has learned.
Charles Klonaris, the Nas-
sau Tourism and Develop-
ment Board's (NTDB), con-
firmed that the committee
charged with Bay Street's
revitalisation wanted the plan
by architect Jackson Burnside
to be fully approved by the
Government.


He added that a city man-
ager for downtown Nassau
had also been recruited.
"We have someone who is
not just going to manage, but
will be in charge of the
authority and making sure
short-term and long-term
projects are moving," Mr
Klonaris told Tribune Busi-
ness.
"It's getting to the point
where we need a chief execu-
tive to run the city on a day-
to-day basis."
Dr Earl Deveaux, minister
of the environment, yester-
day confirmed the Cabinet
meeting to review Mr Burn-
side's masterplan had been
rescheduled.

While engineering, feasibili-

to pave the way for Nassau

ongoing, Dr Deveaux said it
was possible that the actual

"It is still the expectation

Deveaux explained to Tribune

He added: "We have indi-

pletion. So let the work drive
the deadline, rather than the
deadline drive the work."
The possible New Year
dredging start, and eight-month
timescale for completion,
means that the attempt to
accommodate the world's
largest cruise ships by autumn
2009 is already 'facing an
extremely tight schedule.
The Government's insistence
that it will not allow the needs
of major cruise lines such as
Royal Caribbean and Carnival
to dictate the Nassau Harbour
dredging schedule may also not
please Bay Street merchants,
plus tour and excursion
providers, taxis and surrey dri-
vers, and the hotels, who all
rely heavily on cruise tourism
for a substantial part of their
revenues and business.
Meanwhile, Dr Deveaux said
the Government had
"approved the amendments to
the harbour dredging contract"
to allow the project's consul-
tant engineers, Cox & Shal, to
make additional core borings


that will investigate the struc-
ture of the harbour bottom.
The minister explained that
the Government wanted to use
the fill extracted from the har-
bour dredge to expand Wood-
es Rogers Wharf eastwards to
Armstrong Street, and expand
the western end of Arawak
Cay to accommodate the new
port.
At Arawak Cay, studies
were being effected to moni-
tor the tidal impact, and effects
on the beach and flow of water,
but on the potential eastwards
expansion, the engineers were
particularly interested in assess-
ing a bar that ran westwards
from Potter's Cay to the
Bahamas Agricultural and
Industrial (BAIC) building on
Bay Street.
The core borings would
determine how the bar and
seabed were structured, Dr
Deveaux explained. Whether
it was sand or rock -would
impact the dredging and its
cost, he said, and the findings
would dictate whether sheet
pilings and other reinforce-
ments were needed.
Mailboat access into Potter's
Cay was another factor, Dr
Deveaux explained, adding:
"The consulting firm has to tell
the dredging firm where, and
how, to dispose of the fill."

'Insular' focus hits Bahamas



firms' ability to compete


FROM page one

Yet Mr Slatter said: "If you
look at the actual amount
that flows out, it pales in com-
parison with what flows in.
"I think that if you look at
the relationships between
those markets, particularly
Barbados and Trinidad,
they've now got a history of
co-operation and competition
between each other. They
tend to have more of a
regional outlook, and we tend
to have a more insular,
inward view.
"They're definitely ahead
of us as far as being willing
to look beyond their borders
and the opportunities coming
out of that.


"If our competitors oper-
ate in multiple jurisdictions,
with larger client bases and a
better understanding of to
compete globally as well as
regionally, it definitely puts
us at a disadvantage."
Growing internationally
allows companies to achieve
greater economies of scale,
building up balance sheets
and cash positions for future
acquisitions.
Mr Slatter told Tribune
Business he had seen
research indicating that with-
in several years, Trinidad &
Tobago could surpass the
Bahamas as the third wealth-
iest nation in the Caribbean
as measured in terms of GDP
per capital.


The attraction of the
Bahamas for Caribbean com-
panies, he explained, was that
it was perceived as a US dol-
lar economy due to the
exchange control peg, while
its relatively high GDP per
capital base represented a fur-
ther quality for firms looking
to grow beyond their saturat-
ed home markets.
Apart from the largest
stake in City Markets' major-
ity shareholder that is held

prove a major weight on U.S. busi-
ness growth and pledged to "act as
needed" to brace the wobbly econ-
omy.
Bernanke and his Fed associates
are fighting the biggest financial
debacle since the Great Depres-
sion. On Wednesday, the Fed chief
faced a second straight day of tough
questioning on Capitol Hill about
the Bush administration's proposed
$700 billion bailout plan.
Lawmakers have voiced skepti-
cism about the plan aimed at
shoring up troubled financial insti-
tutions and markets.
Bernanke has been trying to
reassure the country that the Fed
will do what it can to provide relief.
Some analysts think interest rates
might be lowered again soon.
Bernanke appeared much more
concerned about the stumbling
economy right now, than about the
prospects of inflation getting out
of control. The slowing economy
should cause inflation to moder-
ate later this year and next, he said.
In testimony to Congress' Joint
Economic Committee, Bernanke
repeated his warning of dire eco-
nomic consequences if the bailout

stress in recent weeks, which will
make lenders still more cautious
about extending credit to house-
holds and business, could prove a
significant drag on growth,"
Bernanke said. "The downside
risks to the outlook thus remain a
significant concern."
All told, the economy is likely
to turn in a subpar performance in
the second half of this year,
Bernanke said. Consumers are
expected to rein in their spending
as unemployment rises, paychecks
shrink and the energizing impact
of the government's tax rebates
disappears. Slowdowns overseas
aren't helping, Bernanke said, not-
ing that they'll cause American
export growth to recede.
"Economic activity appears to
have decelerated broadly,"
Bernanke said.
If credit stresses drag on, he
warned lawmakers Tuesday, the
economy could actually shrink,
more jobs will be lost and foreclo-
sures already at record highs -
will rise even more.
Although Bernanke welcomed
the recent retreat in oil prices from

the all-time high of $147.27 a barrel
reached in mid July, he said the
central bank must remain vigilant
because the situation can turn
quickly. Oil prices are up about
$15 in the past week. Such fluctua-
tions in oil prices in the past few
days illustrate the difficulty of pre-
dicting the future course of prices,
Bernanke said.
Last week, the Fed decided to
hold its key interest rate steady at 2
percent for the third straight meet-
ing. However, it struck a more
bearish tone on the economy, hint-
ing that rates could go lower if con-
ditions seriously deteriorate. Earlier
this year, the Fed had halted its
most aggressive rate-cutting cam-
paign in decades out of fear that
the low rates were aggravating
inflation. Financial turmoil, how-
ever, has now overwhelmed those
concerns.
"Stabilization of our financial
system is an essential precondition
for economic recovery." Bernanke
told lawmakers on Wednesday.
To that end, the Fed chief urged
Congress to act quickly on the
administration's bailout plan.
The administration's plan would
allow the government to buy bad
mortgages and other rotten assets
held by troubled banks and finan-
cial institutions. Getting those debts
off their books should bolster those
companies' balance sheets, mak-
ing them more inclined to lend and
easing one of the biggest choke
points in the credit crisis. If the plan
works, it should help lift a major
weight off a national economy
already crumbling under the bur-
den of instability.
However, both Democrats and
Republicans said that big changes
are needed in the bailout plan. And
that presages a difficult road ahead
for the measure on Capitol Hill,
with the election-year break bear-
ing down on lawmakers.
So far this year. a dozen federal-
ly insured banks and thrifts have
failed, compared with three last
year. The country's largest thrift,
Washington Mutual Inc.. is falter-
ing.
The U.S. has taken extraordi-
nary measures in recent weeks to
prevent a financial calamity, which
would have devastating implica-
tions for the broader economy. It
has. among other things., taken con-
trol of mortgage giants Fannie Mae
and Freddie Mac. provided an $85
billion emergency loan to insur-
ance colossus American Interna-
tional Group Inc. and temporarily
banned short selling of hundreds
of financial stocks.

"It will have an impact on
what we do in that there will be
a reduction in the number of
persons utilising cheques, so it
will reduce the amount of busi-
ness that we presently do. It will
reduce our business," Mr Bly-
den said.
To compensate for the
decline in that area, Mr Blyden
said Chekard was looking at
ways to introduce new products
and services, and expand exist-
ing ones.
"At present, we offer emboss-
ing card services, for clients like
insurance companies, and busi-
ness cards We produce those
on plastic cards, and electronic
imprinting of cards for compa-
nies who want to use some dis-
cretion and don't want to actu-
ally take care of that service
themselves. We do that and we
do collections, so there are areas
that we can expand on," he
added.
While the BACH will even-
tually also reduce the need for
cash, as cheques did, Mr Bly-
den said some Bahamians were
still unwilling to move away
from cash. He said the concept

tinued to be pushed.

at this stage of the game to first
go and get those technologies.
There are still a number of
businesses out there that do
not take credit cards or don't
have a facility to take credit
cards or debit cards, so this will
probably force a lot of them to
come up to the stage where
they can accept them," Mr But-

However, he added that the
clients of those businesses often
do not have debit or credit
cards anyway.
"Some of these stores are not

are pretty big food stores that
really do not take any kind of

"I think the real impact will

the bank doesn't hold your

Mr Butler said that would

out that it also has a reverse

He added that the imple-

Stocks fluctuate





after Buffett and





Goldman deal


NEW YORK
Associated Press
FINANCIAL markets
were tense Wednesday, with
stocks fluctuating following
investor Warren Buffett's
decision to invest $5 billion
in Goldman Sachs Group
Inc. The credit markets
showed added strain as
investors await news about
.the government's plan to
rescue banks from crippling
debt.
Buffett's Berkshire Hath-
away Inc. said Tuesday it
was investing at least $5 bil-
lion in Goldman a move
Wall Street took as a sign of
support for the independent
investment bank model.
Besides buying $5 billion in
preferred stock, Berkshire
also got warrants to buy
another $5 billion in Gold-
man's common stock.

Approval
Goldman Sachs also said
it will sell $5 billion worth
of common stock to the pub-
lic; the company and Mor-
gan Stanley earlier this week
were granted approval to
become bank holding com-
panies, which would help
them strengthen their bal-
ance sheets.
Though Buffett's move
appeared to soothe some
investors, it didn't alleviate
concerns about the effec-
tiveness of any government
bailout and about the health
S of the broader economy. It
T could also lead to new ques-
tions from lawmakers for
Treasury Secretary Henry
Paulson, a former co-,CEO
of Goldman Sachs. He and
Federal Reserve Chairman
Ben Bernanke are appear-
ing before Congress for a
second day Wednesday to
brief lawmakers on a $700
billion bailout measure for
financial services firms.


Their appearance on Capi-
tol Hill Tuesday unnerved
investors, who questioned
whether lawmakers were
beginning to doubt the
necessity and form of the
government bailout.
The waiting was clearly
wearing on the credit mar-
kets, raising concern again
about liquidity.
Demand for short-term
government Treasuries
increased as investors again
sought safe places to keep
cash. The yield on the 3-
month Treasury bill, consid-
ered the safest short-term
financial asset, was at 0.49
percent Wednesday after-
noon, down from 0.79 per-
cent late Tuesday. Last
week, demand spiked so
high that the yield briefly
dipped into negative territo-
ry; investors were so focused
on putting their money in
safe assets that they have
been willing to accept very
little or even negative
returns.
In other Treasury trading,
the yield on the benchmark
10-year Treasury note was
unchanged at 3.80 percent
from late Tuesday.
"I think you're seeing a lot
of tough talk from politicians
who don't want to seem like
they're rolling over for Wall
Street and normally, people
would see that for what it is.
But right now investors are
exceptionally nervous," said
Stephen Massocca, co-chief
executive of Pacific Growth
Equities in San Francisco.
In midafternoon trading,
the Dow Jones industrial
average fell 9.00, or 0.08 per-
cent, to 10,845.17 after mov-
ing in and out of positive ter-
ritory. The Dow is down
more than 500 points, or
about 4.7 percent, for the
week.
Broader stock indicators
rose. The Standard & Poor's
500 index advanced 1.64, or
0.14 percent, to 1,189.86, and


the Nasdaq composite index
rose 16.24, or 0.75 percent,
to 2,169.57.
The dollar, whose strug-
gles earlier this week con-
tributed to extreme.volatili-
ty in other markets, was
mixed. Meanwhile, gold
prices rose.
Light, sweet crude for
November delivery fell 95
cents to $105.66 a barrel on
the New York Mercantile
Exchange.
"The market essentially is
break-even today and we're
starting to see these trou-
bling spreads in short-term
interest rates again and I
think it's doubts creeping in
about what is coming out in
this legislation," Massocca
said.

Focus
Investors appeared
unfazed by a larger-than-
expected drop in sales of
existing homes in August;
their focus remained on the
bailout. The National Asso-
ciation of Realtors said sales
fell by 2.2 percent; sales had
been expected to fall by 1.6
percent, according to econo-
mists surveyed by Thom-
son/IFR.
The number of unsold
homes on the market
dropped by 7 percent from a
record set in July. It marked
the steepest drop in inven-
tory since December 2006.
Declining issues outnum-
bered advancers by about 3
to 2 on the New York Stock
Exchange, where volume
came to 645.6 million shares.
The Russell 2000 index of
smaller companies fell 4.59,
or 0.65 percent, to 704.60.
Overseas, Japan's Nikkei
stock average rose 0.20 per-
cent. Britain's FTSE 100 fell
0.79 percent, Germany's
DAX index fell 0.26 percent,
and France's CAC-40 fell
0.61 percent.


* WASHINGTON
Associated Press
EXECUTIVES whose
companies get a piece of the
$700 billion government
bailout will have their pay
packages strictly limited
under proposals that are
broadly supported by both
Republicans and Democrats
in Congress.
The Bush administration
was resisting the move as it
scrambled to overcome wide-
spread migiL ingi on Capitol
Hill and swiftly push through
its plan to rescue tottering
financial firms by buying up
their rotten assets.
Lawmakers in both parties
are demanding changes to
the administration's rescue
proposal despite dire warn-
ings from top economic offi-
cials of recessions, layoffs
and lost homes if Congress
doesn't approve it quickly.
Both parties' presidential
candidates also insist on
alterations to the drastic pre-
scription.
"We have got to look at
some alternatives," said Sen.
Richard Shelby of Alabama,


the top Republican on the
Senate Banking Committee.
Sen. Chris Dodd, D-Conn.,
the panel's chairman, said
the Bush administration's
position was "not accept-
able."
Meanwhile, world stock
markets were mixed Wednes-
day amid reports of a plan by
Warren Buffett to invest at
least $5 billion in the embat-
tled Wall Street firm Gold-
man Sachs. That develop-
ment helped allay some fears
about the world's troubled
financial sector, but uncer-
tainty in many quarters inter-
nationally about the massive
U.S. economic rescue plan
persisted.
Congressional leaders say
they are working to approve
the rescue by week's end, but
the chances of a quick deal
were dwindling.
"Just because God created
the world in seven days does-
n't mean we have to pass this
bill in seven days." said Rep.
Joe Barton, R-Texs.-.
In New York where he is
concluding a series of meet-
ings relating to the U.N.
General Assembly session,


President Bush said, "I am
confident when it's all said
and done, that there will be a
robust plan." The president
spoke Wednesday before a
meeting to discuss free trade
with leaders of other West-
ern Hemisphere nations.
Rep. Barney Frank, D-
Mass., the House Financial
Services Committee chair-
man, was in intense negotia-
tions with Treasury Secretary
Henry Paulson on key ele-
ments of the plan.
"As long as it looks as if
we are seriously engaged, it's
not too late" to act, Frank
said.
Sen. Charles Sc', .-.r. told
CNN Wednesday. e pro-
posed some kind of FDIC for
all financial services compa-
nies. They would pay a fee
every month and that would
go into helping pay for this
plan. It won't pay for all of
it."
Law enforcement officials,
meanwhile, said Tuesday that
the FBI was investigating'
four major U.S. financial
institutions whose collapse
helped trigger the bailout
plan.

When it comes to faith,


h hd gt to


W By LISA LAWLOR


j AT should a parent's response be
1 when their child begins exploring dif-
ferent faiths? For some men and
women of faith a child's interest in pursuing a dif-
ferent path to God is a move that should be sup-
ported. For other's however, such a pursuit that
is considering a different faith, or. no faith at all -
should be resisted, cast down and condemned.


Guillaume God6t, a member of St
Matthew's Anglican Episcopal
Church, believes that as long as a
child is following the Christian faith
the child -will still be saved. "God
made everything and we own noth-
ing. He is who you must honour and
live for."
For Mr God6t, the matter hits
close to home.. His son, who has
studied for a Master degree in theol-
ogy, and is in the process of studying
for a PhD, has chosen to follow the
Presbyterian faith which his father
.is fine with. "As long as he is still
worshipping God, why be upset?"
Mr God6t said.
But what ifliisson.had'chosen ib


be agnostic or atheist, what then?
Mr God6t response: he would have
to pray his son would change and
never stop praying.
Reverend Charles E Rolle of
Mount Nebo Union Baptist Church
similarly said that there is always
hope. "After children go off to pur-
sue a higher degree they sometimes
change their t aliefs. My own chil-
dren, who grew up with the Baptist
faith, came home with more liberal
views although they still follow the
Baptist faith," he said.
"I try to show my daughter what
the Bible says, and I advise [that fol-
lowing another religion] is not the
proper" thing -to do, but she is Lmy

child, even if her faith is different."
Rev Rolle said that he would not
accept his children following anoth-
er faith, but he would have to toler-
ate it because you can't just throw
them away. Acceptance and tolera-
tion is not the same thing, he
explained, because "acceptance
would be agreeing, toleration would
only be telling them that I don't
agree but still want to see them
because they're my children and I
love them."
He would also advise that his chil-
dren read up on religions and be
well-versed, that is fully informed as
to their decision.
"In Christianity we follow by faith
in that we don't see but we believe
that Jesus came to this world,
walked on the dust road and went
up to Mount Cavalry where he gave
his life for us. In other religions they
have a completely different concept,
such as Muslims who say their
leader is Elijah Mohammed who
walked and lived just like you and
me. They claim to have seen him,
and it is a more factual belief sys-
tem," he said. The Bible and the
Koran are just totally different, he
added.

Daniel and Nebuchadnezzar's
Dream
Text: Daniel Chapter 2:1-49
Nebuchadnezzar became angry and gave orders
to put every wise man in Babylon to death.
According to the text, his advisors argued, 'What
^you are demanding is impossible! It can't be done,
S' except by the gods, and they don't live on earth.
Arioch told Daniel what happened: Daniel rushed
Pastor Ben Bailey to the king, and asked for some time, promising
The Prophetic Voice to explain the dream. He told his three friends; pray
P. 0. Box N-9518 that God would be merciful and explain the mystery.
Nassau, Bahamas When faced with the sentence of a certain death;
Tpv.inc@coralwave.com the thought of playing it safe must be cast to the
wind, and bold action employed to buy some time,
and come up with solutions to problems, and live. God showed Daniel
the dream and its meaning in a night vision; Daniel's grateful response was
to bow down and praise God.
Daniel told Arioch, take me to the king; the king asked Daniel, can you tell
me my dream and its meaning? Daniel answered, not even the smartest
person throughout the known world can perform what you are demanding.
God alone, who rules from heaven, explains mysteries; Daniel explained
this interpretation could not result from the power of a man's intellect; God
was seeking the heart of the king, and desired him to know what was in
the dream. The whole matter concerned itself with two competing kingdoms;
the image represented the successive Gentile nations [World powers], and
God's Deliverance of His People through Messiah.
Kingdom of the World: What you saw standing in front of you was a huge
and terrifying statue, shining brightly. Its head was made of gold, its chest
and arms were silver, and from its waist down to its knees, it was bronze.
From there to its ankles it was iron, and its feet were a mixture of iron and
clay. That was the dream, and now I'll tell you what it means. You are the
greatest of kings, and God has highly honoured you with power over all
humans, animals, and birds (These words describe an absolute ruler). The
head made of gold represented Babylon under Nebuchadnezzar; you are
the head of gold. The silver chest and arms represented a weaker divided
kingdom destined to rule after Nebuchadnezzar's death. This theme of the
message switches from king to kingdom; one arm representing Media, and
the other representing Mede-Persia under Darius. "From its waist to its
knees, it was bronze: Then it will be followed by a kingdom of bronze that
will rule the whole world," representing Greece under Alexander the Great,
further weakened by his four generals' divisions. "From its ankles it was
iron: Next, a kingdom of iron will come to power, crushing and shattering
everything." This kingdom of iron from its thighs to its ankles was the Roman
Empire; the two legs represented the Eastern and Western Empire. History
points to this Roman division under Diocletian, Messiah is born under
Caesar Augustus, when both kingdoms appear together for the first time.
"Its feet were a mixture of iron and clay: This fourth kingdom will be divided;
it will be both strong and brittle, just as you saw that the feet and toes were
a mixture of iron and clay." This kingdom will be the result of a marriage
between kingdoms, but it will crumble, just as iron and clay don't stick
together. This mixed marriage represented the New World Order; and is
presently hailed as United Europe, European Union, or Revived Roman
Empire, whose leader is presently unknown, the divided kingdoms appear
together again, and Messiah returns.
Kingdom of the Word: "As you watched, a Stbne was cut from a Mountain
(Rock); but not by human hands. The Stone struck the feet, completely
shattering the iron and clay. Then the iron, the clay, the bronze, the silver,
and the gold were crushed and blown away without a trace, like husks of
wheat at threshing time. But the Stone became a Tremendous Mountain
that covered the entire earth." "During the time of those kings, the God
who rules from Heaven will set up an Eternal Kingdom [Kingdom of Messiah]
that will never fall. It will be like the Stone that was cut from the Mountain,
the Stone that crushed the iron, bronze, c'Tay, silver, and gold, but not by
human hands."
"King Nebuchadnezzar bowed low to the ground and worshiped Daniel.
Then he gave orders for incense to be burned and a sacrifice of grain to
be offered in honour of Daniel. The king said, now, I know that your God is
above all other gods and kings, because he gave you the power to explain
this mystery."

When the community prays


OVER the next months, The North
Eastern Alliance of Churches will be
hosting a number of prayer events to
cover our area with prayer. Within
the general boundaries of Bay Street,
Robinson Road, Village Road and
Collins Avenue, the churches have
united to ask for healing and deliver-
ance beginning with a walk along
Kemp Road, stopping at three church
grounds to pray together.
The following are sample .prayers
that you may use as if you wish to pray
for; yourself, your neighbourhood
churches, and your community:
Almighty God, You are worthy of all
honour, glory and praise. You gave
your only Son, Jesus Christ, to be our
Saviour and Lord. You sent your Holy
Spirit to be with us and to lead us into


REV. ANGELA
PALCIOI is


all truth, making us holy. We re-dedi-
cate ourselves to you (or we commit
ourselves to you for the first time). We
want to leave our sinful ways and be
made new. Help us to pray daily, wor-
ship regularly and to be faithful mem-
bers of a church family so that we mayn
use our God-given gifts to build this
community. Bless our hearts and our
homes we pray this day in Jesus name.
Amen.


0 Lord, we praise you and thank
Vou for the blessing of fellowship as
ntemihers of'vour htoiy Church. We ask
for a f'rcsi o0tp11oingli of your Holyv
Spirit on all who worship ill this coinm-
munitY, that we ianu till take seriously
your call to ininistry to and with your
people, and to prayer. We pray in the
precious name of Jesus Christ Our
Lord. Amen.


Heavenly Father, we acknowledge
our need for healing as a people broken
in body, mind and spirit. We pray for all
of our neighbours especially our chil-
dren and elderly persons, the disabled
and disadvantaged, the sick and sorrow-
ing. Deliver us from crime, domestic
violence, incest, iunmoralitv, addictions
and all sin that destroys friendship and
family life. Bind us together with your


love we pray in Jesus name. Amen.
In Andrew Murray's book 'Waiting
on God', he points out the way to be
prepared for prayer to be powerful:
"Before you pray, bow quietly before
God, just to remember and realise who
He is, how near He is, how certainly
He can and will help. Just be still
before Him, and allow His Holy Spirit
to waken and stir in your soul the
childlike disposition of absolute
dependence and confident expecta-
tion. Wait to upon God as a Living
Being, as the living God, who notices
you. He is a just God longing to fill you
with His salvation. Wait on God -until
you know that you have met Him;
prayer will then become so different."
May we all take seriously'the respon-
sibility and privilege of praying for one
another.

In part one of this three-part series, I
described the expression, "status quo"
as a state of affairs or a set of condi-
tions which exist now. or exist at a par-
ticular period of time. When I speak of
the status quo here. 1 am talking about
the existing state of affairs within a
church organisation both formally
and informally its structure. polity,
practices, politics and overall culture.
Nickname it the system or something
else if you like, but within this organi-
sation, people are elevated to positions
which gi\e them complete or partial
oe rsi ght o\ 'r the status quo.
Iheir lob is to see that the s\steml
continues to be iaintainedIM in its pres-
ient forlln. or is it \\ ais before, although
ino onle is i iast a,1 little polishing here
and there a new\ programmnle or addi-
lions and inconsequential subtractions
from the programme which, by the
waV. often legitimizes the existence of a
news position holder or appointee in a
particular position. Overall, though,
the status quo must remain as is that
is why leaders always talk about bring-
ing in people with their heart or who
feel their passion, etc. Such leaders can
depend on these people to keep things
just as they -are and accelerate efforts
toward sustaining more of the same.
In part two, I want to discuss some
principles of Transformational
Leadership as I see it, from my own
background and experience.
What is transformational
leadership?
There are, in my view, some essential
evidences of the existence of transfor-
mational leadership. I derive the first
from the Latin root of the term, "trans-
formare" (trans, plus fomare which
means to form). So "transfomare" is to


Mr DR ALBERT S


change the form.
'Transformation at its core and in its
essence means, and involves change.
By comparison, the status quo means.
involves and' denotes remaining the
same, and more of thlie same. It's all
about ne\\\ I appoii tedI elected leaders

(:ias the expression goes).
Fransforlmation. and/or change, on
the other hand. may be minimal, incre-
mental or substantial. which means, a
major break from the old ways.
Change mav involve organisational
change or what corporations call, "re-
engineering", where processes are
examined with a view to eliminating all
that do not conform to the current
business plan and corporate focus.
The transformational leader's blood
is overloaded with "change platelets" -
he/she looks at his/her environment
with a mindset of change not for
change sake, but with a resolute desire
to break with old, inefficient, growth-
retarding and initiative-stifling ways of
the past, and as a change-agent, lead
the organisation (or church) into the
"greener pastures" of value-added,
progress-oriented, visionary and intel-
lect-stimulating leadership.
Right off the top, then, one views the
transformational leader as one who

Stand still and see!


Ye shall not need to fight in this bat-
tle: set yourselves, stand ye still, and
see the salvation of the Lord with you,
0 Judah and Jerusalem: fear not, nor
be dismayed; tomorrow go out
against them: for the Lord will be with
you.
II Chronicles 20:17
FOR to long the body of Christ has
been groping around in darkness -
ignorance when it comes to the sim-
plicity of God's word: hence the
scripture tells us in Hosea 4:6, My
people are destroyed for lack of
knowledge.
Many years ago as a young, newly
converted Christian during several
evangelistic drives throughout the
communities of Nassau, I remember
going into many homes, on street cor-
ners and on a few basketball courts
asking persons, "if they wanted to
receive salvation" you know how we
said it "Do you want to get saved?"
Needless to say, being the religious
nation that we are everybody, even
the drunkest of the drunks, are able
to quote a scripture verse in defence
or to justify his condition.
I later discovered that my evangel-
istic quest to invite others to salvation
was not incorrect, but rather was
incomplete.
Now, if you want to be honest
many of you have done it the way I
was doing it, and most are still doing
it the same way which drove some
folks away especially the younger
generation rather than winning
them for the kingdom of God.
During my time of being
church/religious minded I was always
of the view that the word salvation
had to do with going to heaven. So,
being ignorant in my religious, evan-
gelistic mode and talking about salva-
tion, here's what was always said,
"My brother/sister if you get saved
right now and die tonight, you would
be in heaven with God".
The truth is "nobody likes the idea
of dying" especially young people,
and it was this level of ignorance of


PASTOR




the word salvation that drove them
away.
Let's look at the opening scripture
II Chronicles 20:17, Stand still and see,
the salvation of the Lord. King
Jehoshaphat received the word of
God from the priest Jahaziel as Judah
was being besieged by other nations
and a portion of that word was "stand
still and see the salvation of the lord".
The word salvation in the Hebrew
is: veshuw'ah.,yesh-oo'-aw: which has
several meanings:
1) something saved
2) deliverance
3) aid
4) victory
5) prosperity
6) deliverance
7) health
8) help
9) welfare
Take note of the meanings of the
word salvation (yeshuw'ah, yesh-oo'-
aw:) the same as our Lord and Savior
Yeshuw'ah Messiah.
Unlike the religious Christians of
today who equate the word salvation
primarily with going to heaven. King
Jehoshaphat and the children of
Judah were in a fight for their lives
and understood the word salvation
and being fully persuaded that
Yahweh, the God of Israel, was about
to deliver them in the battle they were
facing.
As a pastor that is a man'of God, I
am also fully persuaded that the same
Holy Spirit that came upon the priests
and prophets of old now abides with-
in me. Therefore I can confidently
declare unto you; that you don't have
to remain in the situation that you're
now in or die from whatever sickness
or disease you may have been diag-

Like King Jehoshaphat was told, so
say I unto you, "stand still and
see/receive the salvation of the Lord".
. As you read this article the enemy
will immediately try to play with your
mind and tell you that the context of
this message was only applicable to
those of the Old Testament..
Therefore, for the purpose of that
negative, lying, spirit, let's also go to
the New Testament and look at the
same word salvation and its mean-
ings.
Luke 19:9 says. And Jesus said unto
him. This day is salvation come to this
house, forsomuch as he also is a son of
Abraham.
In studying this scripture one would
see that Yeshuwa Messiah was deal-
ing with a crooked government man -
a customer officer named Zacchaeus.
After meeting and speaking with
Yeshuwa. Zacchaeus repented of his
wicked/crooked ways, and as a result
Yeshuwa made the statement, "This
day is salvation come to this house.
forsomuch as he also is a son of
Abraham".
Obviously, Yeshuwa was not talking
about Zacchaeus' house going to
heaven. In the Greek the same word

salvation is: soteria, so-tay-ree'-ah;
which also has several meanings:
1) rescue or safety [physically or
morally]
2) deliver
3) health
So there you see, God's salvation
plan has not changed from day one
concerning you: don't allow the
enemy to hold you hostage or in
bondage any longer. Here's what the
scripture says about you, if you would
receive and believe the word: John
8:36.-If the Son therefore shall make
you free, ye shall be free indeed.
I thank you for taking the time
from your busy schedule to read this

a blessingto you one.way or another.

Let the church be the church


FOR while one saith, I am of Paul; and
another, I am of Apollos; are ye not car-
nal? Who then is Paul, and who is
Apollos, but ministers by whom ye
believed, even as the Lord gave to every
man? I have planted, Apollos watered;
but God gave the increase.
1 Corinthians 3:4-6


AS we look at the Church today,
what is of great concern is that
Christians sit back and pass judgment
on the people of the world, especially
those in the political arena, when in
reality if we would check ourselves we
will find that there is much to be
desired in the attitudes and actions of
many among us which should not be
because we claim to have a relation-
ship with Jesus Christ, our Redeemer
and this should make a difference.
Last year we experienced another
general election and as usual support-
ers displayed their allegiance for the
party of their choice by attending ral-
lies and adorning themselves in appro-
priate coloured T-shirts for their spe-
cific party, putting party emblems and
slogans on their vehicles and houses.
At rallies they waved pom-poms,
shouted and cheered their party on at
the top of their voices.
During these rallies speeches were
made with promises that for the most
part were unreasonable or beyond the
candidate's or his party's ability to ful-
fill. However, because these supporters
were caught up in the frenzy of the
moment or what we call, 'election
fever' the supporters seem not to be
able to think clearly or think at all.
Even though you would expect per-
sons to make mature decisions and
think rationally, these things are
accepted as part of the election or
political protocol. My brothers and sis-


S -- R) RO\VENA



ters we cannot afford to be caught up
in partiality in the church.
Saints, there must be a difference
between the scene in the church and
the one at the political rally. It matters
not what great campaign platform the
electoral candidate comes up with but
because it does not come from 'your
party' it will not move vou. Individuals
who- are sold out to party politics are
blinded to the good of the other party
and are reluctant or unwilling to give
credit to any good done by the opposi-
tion whoever is not your party.
We sit back and criticize parliamen-
tarians for their behaviour in parlia-
ment as is viewed on the parliamentary
channel, but we need to begin to take a
look at ourselves. We do not want it to
be said that the behaviour displayed by
some church folks is no different from
those of the parliamentarians. What an
indictment that would be for us.
There are Christian folks, yes.
Christian folks who are so ingrained
with the "I am of Paul" and "I am of
Apollos" syndrome or mentality that
they can only attend an event or serv-
ice depending on who is in charge or
who is speaking. They would find
every excuse why they cannot attend a
particular event, but with a little effort
they will soon realise that it is not all
that difficult. Brethren, let us get our
priorities right. We need to be more
kingdom focused than earthly focused.
Many church folks spend long, long
hours preparing for life here on earth,
but fail to make proper preparation for


~~fl5.tVXk~i~\ \4~\ N" X N"


Let love win....


ONE of the things that bothers me in
this country is how we as Bahamians
make everything political.
You go to church there's talk of
politics, walking on the street there's
talk of politics, recreation time -
again, talk of politics. That's okay as
long as the conversation does not end
up in a brawl or in offence.
During the last general election I
was appalled at the behaviour of some
of my Bahamian brothers and-sisters.
It was amazing how we treated each
other. Their were persons who got
mad at other because of their political
preference. We have been afforded
the privilege to choose who we want


ALLISON
\ i 1[ 1 FR


to run this country in reference to
political parties. It does not matter if
you are PLP, FNM or BDM God
could care less.
What matters to Him are pure
hearts, clean hands, love for one
another, being each other's keeper,
raising our children in the fear and
admonition of Him, husbands loving
their wives, wives respecting their
husbands and children obeying their
parents to name a few. Not politics.
regardless of what our political prefer-
ence is we're still neighbours. Our


the life hereafter. Matthew 6:19-20
says, Lay not up for yourselves treas-
ures upon earth, where moth and rust
doth corrupt, and where thieves break
through and steal: But lay up for your-
self treasures in heaven, where neither
moth nor rust doth corrupt, and where
thieves do not break through and steal.
.My friends, this passage of scripture
presents a sobering thought worth
pondering. Where are you laying up
your treasure? In the natural if you do
not deposit monies on your account,
then it would be impossible to go to the
bank expecting to withdraw what you
did not deposit.
Preachers, praise team leaders and
other ministry directors should be the
greatest supporters of each other, not
only because they are in a particular
position, but simply because they
understand what leadership is all
about.
Ministers/leaders, remember when
the preacher is preaching, you are not
exempted. Do not display the attitude
that the preacher is preaching to the
other members of the congregation.
You will be surprised at the kind of
message you are relaying to onlookers
whether they are in the congregation
or watching on TV. Encourage the
preacher! Be a good team player!
As a Church we must stand up and
let our light shine before men so that
they may see our good works and glo-
rify our Father in heaven. We must set
examples for others to follow and
remember the world is watching. And
we dare not stand in the way of sinners.
I admonish all believers in Christ,
especially preachers to stand up and
make a difference do not take the lib-
erty to use the sacred podium for our
personal agendas. When you stand
behind the sacred podium, remember
that you are God's representative and
you should be offering solace, healing

children still go to the same schools
and sit next to each other in church.
When Jesus died, He died for all -
not just for PLPs, FNMs or BDMs.
"We all have sinned and come short of
the glory of God." It's fine to have
harmless political discussions because
we all talk about what's going on in
the country and how it effects our
individual lives and that's cool. We
can't take it to the extreme however,
where we are actually mad at each
other and not speaking to one another
because my decision is different from
yours.
Wa must always let love be the foun-
dation of all our debates, but especial-
ly controversial and highly heated
ones. We all have witnessed them get
out of hand many times. On my way to
work one morning a lady asked a man
how he was doing. His response to her


and consolation.
We are living in critical times, there-
fore we should refrain from using the
pulpit to vent our personal frustrations
or vendettas. As Christians we must
endeavour to make a difference in the
world one song writer says, 'Let the
world in you the Saviour see'.
Moses is a wonderful example.
Looking at the situation from a human
point of view, we would say that Moses
had every reason to be angry with the
children of Israel for their continuous
murmuring, complaining and outright
disobedience, even God got tired of
them.
God was ready to destroy the whole
nation, but Moses pleaded for mercy
and God spared them. Moses could
have easily asked God what took him
so long, but instead he was willing to
forgive them and asked God to also
forgive them. He told God that if God
did not forgive their sins, blot me, I
pray thee out of thy book which.thou
hast written.
Therefore leaders, the next time you
are tempted to condemn your flock for
their wrong doings, reflect on the story
of Moses Exodus 32 and allow the
spirit of forgiveness to have its way.

Let the church be the church!

know the government is for the peo-

however, there are things that the peo-

I don't know how many people
realise that those same politicians are
godparents for each other's children.
They are in business together and
sometimes after those heated debates
in the House of Assembly they have
lunch together. So if they don't allow

The history of religion in the Bahamas


THE history of religion in the Bahamas
has deep roots in the schism caused in
the early 16th Century by King Henry
VIII, when he broke away from the
Roman Catholic Church and formed the
Church of England.
Just as in the early days of the
Christian religion, sects grew to threaten
the established worship and doctrine. By
the time of King Charles I, there was a
challenge from dissenting groups called
Puritans, whose aim was to purify the
Anglican Church from elaborate rituals
and ceremonies in stately cathedrals. Of
course the dissent also had political
motives. The king and the Anglican
nobles of his parliament were bitterly
opposed over taxation and economic
policy by the rich London merchants,
who embraced the Puritan doctrines.
Colonial policy, formed by the king
and his Royalist parliament at that time
stated that "Settlers were to be English
citizen's living abroad rather than agents
of London Merchants or Financiers".
Under English law, all territory
belonged to the Crown...and colonists
were to profess the true religion. With
this in mind King Charles acceded pro-
prietary rights to the Bahamas to Sir
Robert Heath, the attorney general of
England, in 1729. Heath never followed
through and so the Bahamas lay unin-
habited and considered worthless.
So what was the final impetus for
resettlement of the Bahama Islands, for
so many years uninhabited, for so many
years deemed unworthy, lacking in
intrinsic value, for so many years disre-
garded and regarded as the ugly duck-
ling of new found territories in the
Americas and the Caribbean?
Storm clouds of political and religious

controversy, originating in the mother
country, had swept across the Atlantic
and hung low over the English colony of
Bermuda.
Puritanism had taken root in
Bermuda by the 1640s and the conflict
between the royalist majority, support-
ers of King Charles I and the Anglican
Church, and the independent minority,
agitators for reforms of Anglican
dogma, mirrored the turmoil that had
beset England for more than a century.
The Bermuda Government and
church, aware of the schisms tearing
England apart and the ensuing chaos
and civil war, imposed a systematic pro-
gramme of repressive measures to
encourage conformity to the Anglican
church, and Independents who refused
to adhere to the Anglican authority
were imprisoned.
The bitterness between the Royalist
and Independent factions was height-
ened in 1644, when the Reverends
Nathaniel White, Patrick Copeland and
William Golding publicly renounced
their Anglican orders and organized an
Independent church. Thereafter
increased harassment of the
Independent Puritans by the Bermuda
Government and Church led them to
considerations of leaving the colony.
Such was their determination to hold
services and preach the gospel as they
saw fit, completely free of the forms and
tenets of the established church, that the
choice of exile over conformity was an
easy one.


The Independents were fortunate to
have captured the attention of a very
influential Bermudian, Captain William
Sayle, a former governor and sheriff of
the colony. Sayle was not active in the
Puritan movement but he was sympa-
thetic to its cause. Since he was in dis-
favour with the Government at the time,
he welcomed the chance to throw in his
lot with the zealous puritans and lead
them to a new land where they would be
free to worship as they wished.
And the puritans could not have
enlisted a more ideal person to lay the
groundwork and prepare for their voy-
age of exile, as Sayle was a natural
leader and an experienced navigator.
Sayle's navigation was no match for
the Devil's Backbone, a wicked reef off
the coast of Segatoo, which was
renamed Eleuthera (freedom). As they
were about to enter the harbour of the
island where they planned to establish
the new puritan colony, their ship was
wrecked on a reef. They suffered only
one loss of life but all their provisions
and goods were lost. And so these
stout-hearted puritan adventurers, who
had given up the security of their
Bermuda homeland for their religious
convictions, began life anew on this
island under extremely hard conditions.
The Bermuda company in London
was advised, '...letters from thence
(Eleutheria) certified that the little
island they are upon, is a most barren
rock, shallow earth, not hopeful to pro-
duce food for the inhabitants...' Yet so
strong was their faith that they
expressed their gratitude to the Lord
for "gathering ourselves together a
people indivisable...providing a table
for us in the wilderness".
It is clear that in those early years
the colony never flourished and the
plight of the puritans at Governor's


Bay evoked considerable sympathy
and goodwill from the neighboring
colonies and England; their moral and
material support contributed to the
survival of the puritan colony.
With the departure of some of the
principal puritans in the 1650s, includ-
ing William Sayle and Nathaniel
White, there is a tendency to look on
this puritan colony at Governor's Bay
as a failure. It is true that in the face of
adversities the republic as outlined in
the articles was never established; it is
true that despite their zeal for freedom
of worship, many gave up and returned
to Bermuda; it is true that the new
colony never thrived. But we must not
forget the unshakable determination
and unwavering faith in God that
drove these pioneer colonists to
Eleutheria. in pursuit of religious free-
-dom.
Tribute should be paid "to the fine
qualities which the first colonists must
have possessed to have enabled them
to endure the hardships of primitive
existence on undeveloped Bahamian
islands". The arrival of the Eleutheran
Adventurers 350 years ago signaled
the rebirth of human life in the
Bahamas.


Jim Lawlor first came to the Bahamas
from England 40 years ago and has
taught many subjects including Religion
and Philosophy. Now retired, he spends
his time between substitute teaching and
researching and writing Bahamian History.

Historical Society and recently co-

Whether by life or by death


IF someone asked you to express your
expectation and hope as a Christian,
what would you say? A few weeks ago
in most Christian Churches, from the let-
ter to the Philippians, Paul answers this
question for himself.
In the opening statement of the pas-
sage, Paul expresses his expectation
and hope. First, he expresses it nega-
tively: It is my eager expectation and
hope that I will not be put to shame in
any way. Then he clarifies it positively,
but that by my speaking with all bold-
ness, Christ will be exalted now as
always in my body, whether by life or
by death (Phil 1:20).
When we reaJise that Paul is writing
this from a Roman maximum security
prison, awaiting trial for a charge of
treason that would probably end in his
public execution, then we can all the


By CLEMENT
JOHNSON


more appreciate the heroic faith that
Paul expresses in this letter.
By hoping that he would not be put
to shame, Paul is not hoping that he
will be delivered from death. His hope
rather is that he would be able to
endure the tortures of interrogation
and not deny Christ in any way. We
know this from the second part..of the
statement where he says more clearly
that he hopes that by speaking with all
boldness to his interrogators, he will
give glory to Christ in his body, even if
his body is lacerated by lashes or
demolished in death. This is a far cry


from the hope of modern day prosper-
ity believers who think that the only
way to give glory to God is to be visibly
vindicated in this life. Paul tells us that
Christ can and should be glorified in
the body and life of a true believer,
whether by life or by death
When we search the scriptures one
major difference between the Old
Testament and the New Testament
faith is the New Testament experience
of the death and resurrection of Christ,
which shows that God can be glorified
both in the life and the death of His
loved ones.
For the Christian believer, therefore,
death, suffering or hardship is no
longer what it used to be, an indication
that God has abandoned His people, as
the Old Testament faith seems to sug-
gest. For us as Christians, death has
lost its sting. Death is no longer real, it
is only a shadow. That is why Paul
couldn't care less whether he was sen-
tenced to death or not. Either way,
whether by his life or by his death, he


would still achieve his life purpose of
giving glory to the Lord. For to me, liv-
ing is Christ and dying is gain. If I am to
live in the flesh, that means fruitful
labour for me; and I do not know which
I prefer (Phil 1:21-22).
I am hard pressed between the two:
my desire is to depart and be with
Christ, for that is far better; but to
remain in the flesh is more necessary for
you (Phil 1:21-22).
Someone has observed that this
verse is the high-water mark of New
Testament faith. Compare this with the
high-water mark of the Old Testament,
Psalm 23:4 which I wrote about a few
weeks ago and you will notice an
interesting pattern.
In Psalm 23, David says, Even
though I walk through the valley of the
shadow of death. I fear no evil; for thou
art with me; thy rod and thy staff, they
comfort me. In other words, David, the
heroic believer of the Old Testament,

FROM page 26

was prepared to die, though he really
wanted to go on living. Paul, the heroic
believer of the New Testament, on the
other hand, was prepared to go on liv-
ing, though he really wanted to die and
be with Christ.
Paul's heroic expectation and hope is
made possible by his belief that physi-
cal death for the believer means not a
separation but a union with Christ.
There are Christians today who still
hold on the Old Testament belief that
death ushers the soul into a sleepy and
shadowy existence of separation from
and waiting for union with the Lortl.
Paul himself, in his earlier days,
seemed to entertain a similar belief.
Basing themselves on I Thessalonians
4:16-17, some Christians believe that
dead believers will sleep in death until
they are raptured on the Last Day.
Then only will they be with the Lord.


But Paul is explicit in the chapter that
follows t! 1t1fher we are awake or
asleep c r li e with the Lord" (1
Thess 5: 0).
The fear of death is the mother of
materialism and worldliness. For Paul,
to live is Christ and to die is gain. If you
substitute any other word for "Christ"
in the first phrase and say, "For me to
live is wealth, pleasure, popularity,
power then you must change the sec-
ond phrase to:' "To die is loss".
As we continue our journey we must
realise that God must be first, middle
and last in our lives, meaning as one
scripture writer puts it he is the author
and finisher of our life.
So for those who are dealing with
death we say press on, for those dealing
with difficult situations in life we say
press on, financial difficulties we say
press on, family crisis we say press on:
because we belong to a God who is
Creator and is able to do all things.


Transformational leaders

needed in the Bahamian cl


FROM page 22

"thinks outside the box", one who is an
open-minded, forward thinking strate-
gist. He/she is also an implementer -
he/she understands how various people
react and respond to change efforts so
he /she is able to "lead the change
effort" in a manner acceptable to the
community. Then they can help all
stakeholders to acclimatize to change
with minimum disruptions.
Unlike the status quo leader (or so-
called "transactional leader"), the
transformational leader does not wear
"organizational blinders" often status
quo leaders are galloping ahead, with
great velocity, in the direction only
allowed by their organisational blind-
ers, and all of this activity is called
"progress that exceeds last year's
efforts".
On the other hand, transformational
leaders break with the status quo com-
pletely. That is why they are bound to
stand out, and be criticized and even
maligned. Sometimes, they just don't
fit into all of the religious cliques,
"associations" and reciprocations
(such as "you scratch my back, and
I'll scratch yours you preach for me
and I'll treat you well, then I'll preach
for you. and you'll treat me well", and
so on and. on...). This is why one

"you'h -etter si .


other preachers will start to hate you -
and not invite you to their church!"
Transformational leaders want
change and so many things need to be
changed. That is the supreme motiva-
tion for their work and service. When
the efforts of transformational leade i
produce change, this is like a "fill-ul
at a gas station for them. They are r
energized to perform. This is why a
transformational leader will be so
supremely frustrated in "status-quo
maintenance environments" whether
religious or secular.
Secondly, transformational leaders
are adaptable, flexible and tolerant of
the views and ideas of others. The
mark of an intelligent person is his or
her tolerance of the views of others,
especially when those views differ
from their own. Such is a natural result
of exposure to tertiary-level, (higher)
education, which is claimed by many
church leaders these days. Yet, it seems
to an outsider that some church
leaders are the most closed-minded or
narrow-minded individuals around,
who suffer from tunnel vision. They
display inflexibility and intolerance
with anyone, anything or any view-
point which does not line up with the
status quo.

would even tolerate a child who
rejected all religion although this is
a rejection of what I believe and it

He would definitely need to make
