Pepsi-Cola Bahamas






is shutting down


75


local

will lose

their jobs

E By KARIN HERIG
Tribune Staff Reporter

A MAJOR international com-
pany has announced that it is
shutting down its operations in
the Bahamas and letting 75 local
employees go.
Pepsi-Cola Bahamas yester-
day said it is closing the company
due to "ongoing profitability chal-
lenges."
The company yesterday noti-
fied the Ministry of Labour that
effective from November 14, the
company will cease manufactur-
ing operations and on December
5 it will close its sales and distrib-
ution operations in the Bahamas.
Rick Wooten, senior vice-pres-
ident of Caribbean operations for
PepsiAmericas, said in a state-
ment that the decision to cease
production and sales in the
Bahamas was not a reflection of
the quality or service provided by
the employees there, but instead,
that the overall business lacks
scale to support continuation of
local manufacturing.
Despite continued investments
in both physical and human capi-
tal, the business has not met
expectations for profitability, the
company said.
"Probably the most difficult
decision a company can make is
to close an operation," Mr
Wooten said.
"We understand the impact
such a decision has on egnploy-
ees and on the island of the
Bahamas, and we're committed
to providing severance assistance
to help those individuals as they
find alternate employment."

AMIDST an economic downturn and low occu-
pancy rates, Bahamar and Wyndham are contin-
uing their improvement and expansions plans.
Speaking with The Tribune yesterday, Robert
Sands, Senior Vice President of Administration
and External Affairs for Bahamar, said though
there have been cuts in this increasingly stagnat-
ing market, they are moving forward with devel-
opments that will be financially viable in the very
near future.
"Being visionaries we have to find those nich-
es to grow sales," he said.
"Focusing on niche marketing, a market that is
growing, we felt like we were deficient in having
the right type of facilities to adequately cater to it,


MINISTER of National
Security TommN Tuinque~t
said he is concerned ith the
number ot persons accusedd <(t
,erious offences out on bail and
the backlog in the court sys.
tem.
The constitution of the
Bahamas stipulates that a per-
son charged with a crime must
have their day in court in a rea-
sonable period of time.
Mr Turnquest acknowl-
edged a Supreme Court deci-


hence this investment and this initiative here."
Workers pushed themselves to complete a 500
ft boardwalk behind the Wyndham resort to host
a wedding in a grand gazebo, 30ft in diameter,
which anchors the east end of the new addition.
The wedding party comprised 40 cruise ship
passengers and took place around 1.30 pm yes-
terday.
When the boardwalk is completed sometime in
the next two weeks the western side of the resort
will house a daiquiri stand and improvements
will begin to the resort's pools and restaurants,
said Food and Beverage and Entertainment Man-
ager Mark Hawken.
Guests can look forward to a bandstand tow-
ering above the pool in the rocks adjacent to the

sion that an amendment to the
bail act is not the right Way to
address the problem, but said
he, the attorney general, the
RBPF and the department of


prosecutions are in consulta-
tion to determine what a "rea-
sonable amount of time" is.

Two held in


connection


with murder


of woman


* By TANEKA THOMPSON
Tribune Staff Reporter
tthompson@tribunemedia.net
POLICE have two men in
custody in connection with the
brutal murder of Sheanda
Lewis, whose body was found
in bushes off Charles Saunders
Highway last week.
Although police are "still
working to put the pieces
together" they say they are fol-
lowing significant leads.
"We are seeing some very
positive and encouraging signs.
However, while we have been
questioning several persons, we
are not at the point yet to place
anyone before the courts," Act-
ing -Assistant Commissioner
Hulan Hanna said.


On Saturday, the body of
Lewis, a 19-year-old resident of
Blue Hill Road, was found clad
only in red underwear. Her
throat appeared to have been
slit.'Police said there were signs
that she struggled with her
killer.
A motive has yet to be estab-
lished, Chief Supt Glenn Miller
told The Tribune yesterday..
Police have also said it was
too early to tell if there was any
sexual trauma to the victim,
although the circumstances sur-
rounding her death indicate
there may have been.
. CSP Miller said one man is in
custody and another was picked
up yesterday.
Both are helping police in
their investigations.

FREEPORT A Nassau man was charged
with murder in the Freeport Magistrate's Court on Friday in connec-
tion with the shooting at the Pepper Pot Restaurant.

It is alleged that on October 4, the accused intentionally caused
the death of Cooper by means of unlawful harm.
Moss was not required to enter a plea to murder. He was not rep-
resented by counsel.
Magistrate Jones adjourned the matter to March 11. 2009. for pre-
liminary inquiry. Moss was denied bail and remanded to Her Majesty's
Prison, Fox Hill. '

Ministry officials trying to
resolve health issues at school


* By DENISE MAYCOCK
Tribune Freeport
Reporter
dmaycock@tribunemedia.net
FREEPORT Ministry of
Education officials in Freeport
are trying to quickly resolve
major health issues at the Eight
Mile Rock High School, tem-
porarily closed for more than
week.
Over 800 students, teachers,
and administration staff were
sent home last Tuesday after
almost half of the 40 classrooms
were declared unsafe and unfit
for occupation for various
health reasons.
School Superintendent
Hezekiah lean, Eight Mile
Rock Principal Benjamin
Stubbs, and members of the
Parents Teachers Association
at Eight Mile Rock were at the
school on Friday lo further


assess the situation, and to
determine a suitable rotation
schedule for the return of stu-
dents and teachers at the school.
Troy Garvey, PTA president.
said 18 classrooms, including
the Nutrition and Home Eco-
nomics classes, have been iden-
tified as a health risk because
of the serious rodent, bat, and
pigeon infestation problems
there.
He said that the unpleasant
odour and fecal droppings in
the classrooms were -making
students and teachers sick.
In addition to the infestation
problem, Mr Dean said that
major sewage back-ups and
plumbing problems exist at the
school.
"We have contracted three
companies who are now work-
ing to correct lihc,c problems,

in food crisis, Cuba limits sales so all can eat
* HAVANA
CUBA is limiting how much basic fruits and vegetables people can
buy at farmers' market's irritating some customers but ensuring'!
there's enough barely to go around, according to Associated
Pi ess.
The lines are long and some foods are scarce, but because the
government has maintained and even increased rations in some
areas, Cubans who initially worried about getting enough to eat now
seem confident they won't go hungry despite the destruction of 30 per-
cent of the island's crops by hurricanes Gustav and Ike last month.
"Of the little there is, there is some for everyone," 65-year-old Mer-
cedes Grimau said as queued up behind more than 50 people to
buy lettuce, limited to two pounds per person.
"I'm not afraid that I will be left without food, but it's a pain to
think about all the work we are going to have to go through," Grimau
added. "Two or three months ago the farmers markets were well-
stocked."

MP criticises government


'for not coming to the


assistance of Bahamians'


* By PAUL G
TURNQUEST
Tribune Staff Reporter
pturnquest@tribunemedia.net
CONSIDERING the eco-
nomic conditions facing the
country, Obie Wilchcombe,
PLP MP for West End and
Bimini, questioned govern-
ment' judgment in allowing
78 screeners at Lynden Pin-
dling International Airport to
be fired by the end of the
month.
He pointed out.that eco-
nomic conditions in the
Bahamas have fallen to such
a deplorable state that a num-
ber of unemployed women in
Grand Bahama have resorted
to dancing at two of the
island's local strip clubs. Mr
Wilchcombe cried shame on
government for not coming
to the assistance of Bahami-
ans in such difficult times.
"I want one of the FNMs
to tell me tonight why at this
rough time is the government
deciding to enforce the policy
that the PLP allowed to lay
dormant for several years that
requires police domiciled in
Freeport to remove them-
selves and their families into
private dwellings out of the
police facilities. They have
told them that at the end of
the month they have to be
out.
"Where is our love? Where
is our compassion? And
where is our sensitivity?" he
asked.
Mr Wilchcombe added that
in Grand Bahama over 2,000
people have had to resort to
social service assistance, with
families having to take their
children out of private
schools and put them in pub-
lic schools. As a result, he
said, the public school system
in Grand Bahama is bursting
-,,a*the seams, with most being


"Where Is our love? Where is
our compassion? And where is
our sensitivity?"

Obie Wilchcombe, PLP MP for West End


turned away as there is no
more space available.
"Men and women
employed at the Sheraton
and Lucaya in Grand
Bahama are living lives of
uncertainty. Many are work-
ing only one day, and if you
are lucky, two days, but only
four hours in any of those
days. They have little or noth-
ing to take home. I asked one
lady how is she making it?
And she told me, 'I am not. I
am not paying any of my
bills'," he said.
Himself a former Minister
of Tourism, Mr Wilchcombe
said he hoped Tourism Min-
ister Vincent Vanderpool-
Wallace would find a solution
to the "vexing issues" that
hinder the growth and devel-
opment of the tourism indus-
try.
"He is seeking to place the
country back on course with a
plan that envelopes those
things that were there before
Neko Grant came on the
scene the worst tourism
minister in the history of the
Commonwealth of the
Bahamas. And I want Minis-
ter Vanderpool-Wallace to
succeed because he must suc-
ceed. But we must all appre-


Fetlzr. Fniie

Pet onro


ciate that even if we get
Tourism to rebound the prob-
lems will still be with us," Mr
Wilchcombe said.

Missed opportunities to show some class


THE Republicans are right. Character does
count.
But my guess is that the American people
won't make ultimate judgments on those hop-
ing to lead our country based on where
they've attended church or based on horrific
innuendoes about the patriotism and past
crimes of casual acquaintances.
In fact, John McCain's and Sarah Palin's
McCarthyite zeal to slime Barack Obama in
that manner may have made them miss gold-
en opportunities that could have paid politi-
cal dividends.
If each of them had slowed things down
and uttered an appropriate rebuke when peo-
ple in the audiences had shouted hateful epi-
thets, it might have provided exactly the kind
of game-changing occurrence they've been so
desperately seeking the past two weeks.
Even Obama supporters would have taken
notice, and it would have scored valour
points. Especially, that is, if both Republi-
cans had just had that reaction as an unscript-
ed instinct.
Would that have meant a couple of points
bump in the polls? A tiny blip? No impact at
all? I don't know.
But I'm fairly certain that TV pundits
would still be talking about it. At minimum,
it would have countered, and shared airtime
with, endless chatter about polls that show
McCain lost yet another debate, and others
that show his support slipping in once-red
battleground states.
More important, it would have said some-
thing to impressionable Americans about
McCain's and Palin's personal decency, char-
acter and mettle.
Similar hate speech has been shouted else-
where, including a joint McCain-Palin rally in
Pennsylvania. But so far, the campaign's only
response is a lame statement that it does not
condone "inappropriate rhetoric which dis-
tracts."
McCain apparently missed a similar teach-
ing moment last November when someone,
referring to then-Democratic front-runner
Hilary Clinton, asked, "How do we beat the
bitch?"
McCain chuckled and guffawed with the
crowd before saying, as laughter subsided, it
was "an excellent question." Much later, he
added, "I respect Senator Clinton."
There were later some expressions of regret
by the campaign or McCain himself. Too bad

that regret did not include a resolve to handle
similar situations differently.
Politicians don't get it. But American vot-
ers can respond positively to decency, mag-
nanimity and class, even if cable news pundits
and Internet bloggers get more worked up
over crass attacks and mudslinging.
Far be it from me to tell McCain he should-
n't go for broke in the waning days of this
campaign.
I know he wants to win, and I suspect that
in his sincerest moments of personal reflec-
tion he genuinely feels the country will be
better off if he does.
At 72, McCain, unlike Obama, doesn't
have the luxury of entertaining fallback
notions about viability in 2012 if things don't
work out this time.
If the brightest minds on his strategy team
are telling him he has absolutely no way of
winning without demonizing Obama's tenu-.
ous connections to William Ayers and Rev.
Jeremiah Wright, while also trying to raise
some legitimate doubts about him as well, I
guess I understand. Perhaps, I should keep
my criticism of that campaign strategy some-
what muted.
But where is the old John McCain, who
just months ago, vowed a clean campaign
based on issues and a clear articulation of
his vision for the country?
The old John McCain the highly princi-
pled one might have reacted differently to
this week's ugly incidents.
Anyone with the audacity, bad manners
and bad taste to shout epithets might have
heard a stern denunciation. McCain most
certainly would not be stirring up the furore
that encourages such inappropriate over exu-
berance.
The old McCain that people of every polit-
ical stripe once admired might be vetoing
negative ads that pass neither the truth nor
fairness test not debuting new ones day in
and day out.
The new John McCain may very well over-
come all of his political obstacles and become
the 44th president of the United States. But
the sad irony, I suspect, is that the old John
McCain would now be in a much better posi-
tion.

Grand Bahama and



Martin Marietta's



Bahama Rock


EDITOR, The Tribune.

I FELT a strong need to
write this letter and express my
feelings on paper. I believe that
the residents of Grand Bahama
are still very much unaware of
the damaging effects of Martin
Marietta's Bahama Rock
(MMBR). Recently Bahama
Rock has hosted two commu-
nity town meetings and in all
honesty I must admit that the
meetings were very disappoint-
ing. The second of the two
meetings was especially disap-
pointing'in that the many ques-
tions and concerns that were
presented to the panelists rep-
resenting Martin Marietta's
Bahama Rock (MMBR) were
either not adequately answered
or not answered at all!
Presently the residents of
Eight Mile Rock have been
experiencing damage to their
homes. Many of the wells in
which residents were able to
pump fresh water have been
contaminated, the pine forests
which depend on fresh water
to grow are drying up, man-
grove swamps where most of
our marine life depend upon
for proliferation are being
destroyed and finally the
ruinous flooding that we have
experienced are in my opinion
all due to the dredging and
blasting by MMBR. The Envi-
ronmental Impactment Assess-
ment (EIA) is yet to be accessi-
ble to the public after numerous
requests for it. Also, I suggest
that the government should
recruit a neutral group of seis-
mologists and environmental
scientists to assess the possible
damage and potential damage
to homes in Eight Mile Rock
rather than accepting the data
from scientists on the MMBR
pay roll.
It is very surprising to me that
MMBR is seeking approval for
expansion to their next phase
(which is expanding west of the
Warren J Levarity Highway)
when they were contracted to
be in operation for a limited
time. They are presently seek-
ing this approval from the Gov-
ernment and the Grand
Bahama Port Authority and no
representatives from either par-
ty were present at the first
meeting.
Mrs Vernae Grant (MP for
the Eight Mile Rock con-
stituency) is to be congratulated
for her attendance to the 2nd
Bahama Rock meeting and also
the last town meeting which
was held by the Grand Bahama
Committee for Concerned Res-
idents. It was during this meet-
ing that Mrs Grant made a
promise to residents that she
will correspond with the Minis-

ters of Environmental Health
and the Minister of Housing to
ensure that they become aware
of the strong opposition
expressed by the majority of
Eight Mile Rock residents in
regards to the expansion of
Bahama Rock west of the War-
ren J Levarity Highway.
Mr Walter Reed, General
Manager of Bahama Rock has
communicated to the residents
of Grand Bahama over and
repeatedly that the expansion
of MMBR will provide thou-
sands of jobs for Grand
Bahama but we have yet to be
told what type of jobs will be
available and their job descrip-
tions? Moreover, the expected
date these jobs will be avail-
able. This would be more ben-
eficial to us rather than import-
ing hundreds of foreign
employees to do the work, if
the government gives approval
but I am hoping they don't. A
trait that is typical of most for-
eign investors.
Mr Walter Reed stated in the
MMBR's first town meeting
that the GBPA has issued a
written statement that they
have no interest in the remain-
ing fresh water lenses in west
Grand Bahama. If anyone read-
ing this article was on the island
of Grand Bahama after hurri-
cane Frances in 2004 you will
recall that there was no power
on the island for weeks and
many of us had to revert to
those old water wells to pump
water because the Grand
Bahama Port Authority could
not supply water to the island.
Therefore, their alleged state-
ment to Mr Reed that they
have no need for these fresh
water lenses does not mean that
we have no need for them! We
would much rather have it and
not need it, than to need it and
not have it!
Should the government and
the GBPA approve this expan-
sion of MMBR west of the
Warren J Levarity Highway;
the following provisions should
be incorporated as to aid the
many Bahamians who will be
affected by this action.
A dowry should be provided
by MMBR for young Bahami-
ans who are willing to study
Marine Biology and Environ-
mental Sciences so that they
can help prevent further dam-
aging effects. We need the gov-
ernment to make MMBR
accountable for proper dispos-
al of waste products.
The MMBR must also devel-
op solar powered reverse osmo-
sis plants that will aid in the
restoration of our precious nat-
ural resources such as our fresh
water systems, pine forests and
mangroves.
No less than 15 to 20 per cent
of their earnings should be
going to the government to
invest in two of our most crucial
and unfortunately most neglect-
edissues, education and health-
care. At a minimum, 15 per
cent of earnings should be
invested into programmes to
help relocate, rebuild and aid
in any health related issue of
the resident within a 25-30 mile
radius deemed to be directly
related to or affected by the
actions of the company. This


proposal will be effective from
the first date of the first action
within the radius with no time
limited or ending period as it
is still uncertain the direct neg-
ative result that will come from
the company's actions.
We all know that the GBPA
will grant approval of the next
phase of blasting for MMBR
(they receive millions of dol-
lars from MMBR annually);
however, the real question is:
Will our government leaders
grant the approval for this
expansion as well? As it stands,
they have allowed MMBR to
continue blasting and dredging
as usual after a cease and desist
order was issued by the former
government. Dr Marcus Bethel
permitted a brief blasting exer-
cise for investigative purposes
only. Is the investigation com-
plete? Who gave Bahama'Rock
permission to continue blasting
and dredging! Moreover, in
these extremely difficult eco-
nomic times; the government
has increased the duty rate
from 35 per cent to 45 per cent
and added duty to items that
previously were duty free. (For
example, baby items and school
supplies). Through my research.
I found information stating
explosives and dynamite are
now duty free. If this is not true
will someone please inform the
public because inquiring minds
want to know. How are they
gaining approval from our gov-
ernment? We have to question
the ethics of all those involved
as history has taught us that
many times in our country
money is the underlining fac-
tor of many for the creation of
our unfortunate circumstances.
Therefore, I.sincerely hope this
is not a case of history repeating
itself. How can the government
grant approval knowing the
detrimental affects it will have
on the island and also knowing
that the majority of the resi-
dents in Eight Mile Rock are
in strong opposition to this
expansion?
How will we be able to
answer the people whose
homes were affected by the
blasting and our children and
their children when the ques-
tion is presented to us to how
we were able to sit back pas-
sively and allow their God-giv-
en natural resources to be
destroyed!
We need the Prime Minister,
the Minister of Environmental
Health, the Minister of
Tourism, the Minister of Hous-
ing and the six MPs for Grand
Bahama to meet with the resi-
dents of Grantl Bahama and
tell us why they are willing to
aid in the disastrous destruc-
tion of our natural resources in
which there is absolutely no
benefit for the Bahamian peo-
ple. Let's not forget that these
natural resources are the rea-
son Tourism is our No. 1 indus-
try. Please do not allow Grand
Bahama, which has the second
largest marine nursery system
in the Bahamas, to end up like
Bimini Bay or Exuma that can
no longer go and fish for snap-
pers and get fresh water out of
their back yards but now have
to purchase it!

(near me) built an illegal permanent concrete
garbage enclosure outside of his wall and all the
garbage an' pampers an' tings tumbling out all over
and rolling down an' all our clean and well kept
verges.
"The empty lot next door even full up with the
garbage. He mussey ain't know it aint' legal to
build on the road or he mussey know somebody."

"I still vex because dese bus drivers actin' like
they rule the road and it seem like there is no one -
and I mean dese lazy police who is there to stop
them.
"I was driving along Collins Avenue yesterday
and I saw this bus run the red light, not once, but
twice!
"He drive right past the nice, shiny neighbour-
hood police van and you think they stop him?
"When is this lawlessness going to end? I tired of
people getting away with dese kind of things with no
consequence. No wonder we in the state we in now

"I vex because the world markets are collaps-
ing, more and more people are losing their jobs,
food and gas keeps going up and still US politicians
have time to run a smear campaign instead of focus-

turmoil hits the states also affects us, I am worried
that if a Republican gets back in the White House


we might be in for an
even rockier ride.

why the American
people can't see what
we overseas see -
things wasn't work-
ing for the past eight
years with Republi-

time for a change."

"I vex because there are too many bossy, back-
stabbing, two-faced people on my job. I mean I try
to give people the benefit of the doubt, but I can't
look the other way when it is so obvious people try-
ing to steal your spot or inch in on your position.
There is this one woman who just start at my job
and she is always asking me what I working on or
snooping around my desk.
"And to make it worse, she brings up my ideas in
meetings. I am not a confrontational person but
this woman boiling my blood and hardly no one
else likes her anyway because I am ready to let her
know what time it is.
"I wish people would realise there are ways to get
ahead without being a snake and walking all over
other people. Whatever is meant for you, is meant

Guardian for the lies they
spin about the PLP," Mr
Mitchell exclaimed.
"All I want you to do is
simply stand strong, believe
in the PLP, and uphold its
values," he said.
Mr Mitchell was respond-
ing to a front page article,
featured exclusively in The
Tribune, which rebutted
widespread reports that.
police had in custody a sit-
ting MP who was believed to
have been embezzling funds
from a local corporation.
The argument, sources
said, was that the politician
has been under the "watchful
eye" of investigators for
some time and was finally
being questioned by authori-
ties.
However, as Acting Assis-
tant Commissioner of Police
Hulan Hanna reported that
neither the politician who's
name is being withheld or
any other sitting MP was or
had been in police custody.
Mr Mitchell reminded the
crowd that the PLP is the
oldest political party in the
country, celebrating its 55th
year in existence. As such, he
encouraged the party faith-
ful to continue to "stand
strong" and celebrate the
great history that is the PLP.


THE electricity, gas, water
and communications industry
pay the highest average annual
wage out of all the industries in
New Providence, the new Occu-
pational Wage Survey reveals.
The industry, which includes
media communications as well
as electricians, water and sew-
erage professionals, pays an
average annual wage of $62,000
to employees in Nassau.
In Grand Bahama, the health
and social work industry pays
the highest average annual
wage of around $44,000, fol-
lowed by electricity, gas, water
and communications paying
$41,000 a year on average, while
the transport and storage indus-
try pays the third highest aver-
age annual income of $32,000.
The second highest paying
industry in New Providence is
the financial industry, paying
an average annual wage of
$40,000, followed by health and
social work, an industry paying
an average annual wage of
$30,000.
Kelsie Dorsett, acting direc-
tor of the government Depart-
ment of Statistics, said: "Our
data is telling you that every-
one in the lighting, electricity
and communication including
how many new radio stations,
it is a lot of agencies within that
category so we don't want to
leave you thinking that we have
identified any one agency
because we don't do that."
The survey, carried out every


and beginning of 2008, record-
ing feedback from employers
grouped into various categories.
Basic statistics on the earn-
ings of men and women show
the Bahamas is in line with
global trends as men continue
to earn more than women,
drawing an average annual
wage of $28,497 while women
earn an average $25,000 per
year.
The survey also shows how
men work an average of 39
hours a week, while women
work around 38.
Statistics show how Bahami-
an workers earn more than non-
Bahamians with an average
weekly wage of $530 compared
to non-Bahamians average
weekly wage of $490.
And the highest number of
vacancies in New Providence
and Grand Bahama are those
for clerks required for data
entry, secretarial duties,
accounting and general office
duties, followed by technicians,
service workers and profession-
als including statisticians and
erigineers.

were personally informed of
the decision by Mr Wooten.
Although these 75 persons
are now coming into a market
with reduced employment
opportunities, the news may
not be all bad for the soon-to-
be former Pepsi-Cola workers.
Walter Wells, head of
Caribbean Bottling which
holds the local franchise for
Coca-Cola said that his com-
pany is willing to absorb as
many of the 75 persons as pos-
sible.
Mr Wells said he is more
than happy to help out the for-
mer Pepsi-Cola employees by
offering them jobs at his com-
pany.
Although Pepsi-Cola is
ceasing its production opera-
tions in the Bahamas, the com-
pany will continue to service
Pepsi customers using a local
distributor to deliver, sell and
service its customers.
The closure of this major
beverage production company
follows just month's after the
country's largest liquor pro-
ducer, Bacardi and Company,
announced its plans to pull out
of the Bahamas.
In August of this year, Bac-
ardi announced that it will
move its Bahamian operations
to Puerto Rico by 2009.
Some 114 Bahamians at
Bacardi were affected by this
decision.
Pepsi-Cola Bahamas is a
majority-owned subsidiary of
PepsiAmericas, which is the
second-largest Pepsi bottler
with operations in 19 states,
Central and Eastern Europe,
including Ukraine, Romania,
Poland, Hungary, the Czech
Republic, and Republic of Slo-
vakia, and the Caribbean.

Turnquest concerned over



the number of persons accused



of serious offences on bail


FROM page one

Said Minister Turnquest: "We're still
very concerned at the delays at getting
these persons to trial and there's no
blame to be put on any one agency, so we
all have to take responsibility for it and as
a government we have to ensure that it
happens. We are also concerned about
the number of persons who have com-
mitted serious offences who are out on
bail.
' "We've determined, or the Supreme
Court has determined, that amending
the bail act is not,the answer. The con-
stitution indicates that someone accused
must be tried in a reasonable period of
time we have to determine what that


reasonable period of time (is). Obvious-
ly you can't do it in six to eight weeks,
that's difficult to do. But we should be
able to do it within a 24-month period.
"We ought to be able to get those cas-
es through the system, we ought to deter-
mine which cases are able to be dealt
with quickly, which ones are not, and
move them through the process. And so
the attorney general, myself, the police
force, the prosecutor's department, we're
looking at ways to do it. And so the attor-
ney general obviously, because of the
separation of powers between the judi-
ciary and the executive, will have dia-
logue with the chief justice."
When asked what initiatives his min-
istry had on stream to address crime -
particularly the rising number of mur-


ders Mr Turnquest said he was focus-
ing on breaking up drug cartels and elim-
inating the transshipment of narcotics.
"The actual numbers are not our focus
because really last year we could have
had many more murders if some of (the
victims) who were stabbed or shot did
not survive. What we have to do is reduce-
the level of violence within our commu-
nities a large number are related to the
criminal element, the drug trade in par-
ticular and so our focus is dealing with
that," Mr Turnquest said at the Whyn-
dam Resort before a ceremony celebrat-
ing the end of Public Service Week.
He added that his ministry will con-
tinue carrying out its mandate in terms of
stepping up community policing, police
training, and emphasis on anti-corrup-


tion measures, and acquisition of addi-
tional vessels for the RBDF and reha-
bilitation efforts at Her Majesty's Prison.
When asked what his response was to
recommendations by the Advisory Com-
mittee on Crime, headed by Bishop
Simeon Hall, Mr Turnquest said despite
published reports in another daily a copy
of the final report has not yet crossed his
desk.
Mr Turnquest, who recently returned
from a conference for Public Safety Min-
isters of the Americas in Mexico City,
said while, he had seen a "draft" copy a
few weeks ago, he was "pleased with the
level of work" the committee has done.
He expects the committee's recom-
mendations to reconfirm what his min-
istry is doing.

and so we are hoping that by
Monday the work could be
completed," he said.
Mr Dean said that the sewage'
blockage and odour in the Hos-
pitality Lab is being addressed
by a local plumbing company.
He said the affected class-
rooms are being sanitised and
sprayed, and pressure cleaning
is being conducted in the sci-


ence labs where the bats and
pigeon problem exists.
Mr Garvey said that the min-
istry has been aware of the
problems for the past two years,
but have been dragging its feet.
"These problems have existed
for some time and there were
two reports issued from the
Department Health over the
past two or three years and
nothing was done to address the
problem," he said.
Mr Garvey commended Prin-
cipal Stubbs for his decision to
close the school.
"We can't keep ignoring the
problem.. We have some 860


students who have been out
since Tuesday.
"The teachers want to come
to work, but they need to know
that the environment is safe,"
he said.
Mr Garvey said the PTA has
agreed to alternate students at
the school, using the remaining
22 classrooms, as well as the
auditorium/gymnasium.
"We feel the 18 affected class-
rooms should be condemned
and rebuilt because cleaning
them will not resolve the prob-
lem," he added.

NEMA director

commends public

for response to

relief effort
COMMANDER Stephen
Russell, director of the National
Emergency Management
Agency, commended the public
on its response to the hurricane
relief effort for residents of
Inagua.
He was addressing the Rotary
Club of East Nassau on
NEMA's response in the after-
math of the category four Hur-
ricane Ike, which struck the
island on September 7.
The Rotar-' Club also pre-
sented Commander Russell with
a cheque for $10,000 towards the
hurricane relief effort.
"I must say how grateful we
are for the generous support we
have seen for residents of
Inagua, from school kids, from
communities throughout the
Bahamas, as well as corporate
Bahamas, as well as regional and
international friends and part-
ners," Commander Russell said.
He told Rotarians at the
Yacht Club that he was also
pleased with the performance of
persons of the emergency sup-
port function groups who took
part in the disaster exercise at
NEMA's emergency operations
centre.
Reporting on the status of
Inagua, he said as of Friday,
October 3, water and power
were fully restored to the island;
telecommunications were fully
restored on Monday, October 6,
and 27 of the 49 homes of senior
citizens and disabled persons
-have been repaired and the
school has reopened.
A third shipment of building
materials was expected to arrive
in Mathew Town on Monday.
The materials will be used to
complete the repairs of the
remaining homes of senior citi-
zens, the disabled, single par-
ents, then on the homes of the
general public.

PROGRESSIVE
Liberal Party member
and political activist
Omar Archer is calling
on the government to
establish an ethanol
production field in
Andros and a new min-
istry to deal directly
with energy and technology in
the Bahamas.
Mr Archer said the govern-
ment should invest heavily in
wind and solar energy and the
production of ethanol.
"I think that Andros is the
perfect location to begin, and to
refine ethanol to ship to the
North American market, in par-
ticular to Florida," he said.
Mr Archer explained that the
fields should be established in
Andros as that island has
enough unused land to sustain
the large cornfields that are nec-
essary for the production of
ethanol.
Ethanol is also known as eth-
yl or grain alcohol. It is a clear,
colorless liquid, and when used
to power vehicles, is a high per-
formance fuel that produces.
clean burning exhaust emissions.
For decades, people have
known how to make ethanol
from fermenting and distilling
starch and sugar crops such as
corn wheat, saw dust, compost,
cornstalks, fruit and vegetable
peelings, sugar cane, and pota-
toes.
However, education officer at
the Bahamas National Trust,
Shelly Cant, although not a sup-
porter of ethanol and bio-diesel,
considers ethanol a good 'quick
fix'. She said if we want to be
completely environmentally
friendly, we should lean towards
completely renewable resources


and get rid of tradi-
tional ideas about fuel
entirely.
"Andros is one of
the last sanctuaries for
a lot of biodiversity in
the Bahamas so if we
are going completely
convert that to produce
ethanol, there are con-
sequences that we have
to seriously reconsider," Ms
Cant said.
She pointed out that while
Bahamians must focus on the
immediate economic situation,
they must also look to the
future.
Andros is one of the largest
fishing nurseries in the region
and there are vast amounts of
wildlife on the island. It is also
the source of potable water for
New Providence. "I think if we
are going to spend money, let's
spend it on mass solar power
research," Ms Cant said.
Mr Archer said a new min-
istry to deal with technology and
energy should be created to
address the urgent need for an
effective alternative energy pol-
icy.
"A policy has been promised
but in my opinion it has not been
delivered to the Bahamian peo-
ple. We need' a government who
is proactive in its thinking and its


actions. We are tired ot meet- scholarships in tne fields 01 geol- Lmrw.e COLCf

time for action," Mr Archer said.
He also suggested that the
government provide full paid


"Every 40 years, in my opin-
ion, represents a new genera-
tion. So we today must begin to
prepare for the challenges of


pand
that


they can think beyond their
trained and moulded perception
of life, and there in lies the chal-
lenge," Mr Archer said.

British American Financial Breast Cancer Tip

Treating Breast Cancer with Chemotherapy

Often the side effects of chemotherapy include hair loss, malaise, nausea and vomiting, changes to the sense of smell an-
taste, and oftentimes, complete halt to normal life. While these side effects are common, chemotherapy treatment affect'
different people in different ways. Most people who are on chemotherapy for breast cancer can continue to work and car
on with the functions of daily life.
You can survive breast cancer. Early detection through regular breast self-exams and a regular program (o
mammogram and physical exams are crucial steps that every wcomaun should employ.

The bidding:
South West North East
44 Pass Pass Pass
Opening lead three of clubs.
This hand was played in the
European championships in a match
between Switzerland and Italy.
At both tables, the final contract
was four spades, and at both tables,
the three of clubs was led. The play
varied after the first trick, but in each
case South went down one.
Thle Swiss declarer took the ace of
clubs and led the ace and another dia-
mond, planning to nlffa diamond in
dummy at his first opportunity. East
\von the diamond with the queen and
returned a trump to dummy's king.
At this point, declarer decided to
discard a heart on the king of clubs
before returning to his hand to ruff a


diamond. But West ruffed the king
and-returned a trump. That spelled
the end of the road for South, since
he still had two diamonds to lose, so
he finished with only nine tricks.
The Italian declarer fared just as
badly. He won the club lead with the
ace and promptly crossed to dummy
with a spade in order to discard a
heart on the king of clubs.
He got the discard all right, but
West ruffTed the club and returned a
trump. This left South with three dia-
mond losers, so he also went down
one.
Thus the hand wound up as a tic.
the bad play of each declare being
offset by his counterpart's equally
bad play. Both should have made the
contract, of course, but they went
down trying for an unimportant over-
trick.
The safest way to play the hand is
to lead the ace and another diamond
after winning the first trick. Against
the normal trump return, declare
ruils a low club with tile eight and
trumps a diamond in dummy. South
is then on safe ground. lie rulls a
club with the nine, draws trumps and
winds up with 10 tricks consisting of
seven spades, the two minor-suit
aces and a diamond ruff in dummy.
It is odd that two well-known
international stars, playing in an
important event, each managed to go
down on a basically simple hand.
They both forgot that making the
contract is the primary consideration.


Tomorrow: Test your play.

Browns'

Winslow in

hospital

* By TOM WITHERS
AP Sports Writer
BEREA, Ohio (AP) -
Cleveland Browns tight end
Kellen Winslow was hospital-
ized with an undisclosed ill-
ness and could miss Monday
night's game against the New
York Giants.
Coach Romeo Crennel said
Friday that Winslow was kept
overnight at the Cleveland
Clinic. Winslow practiced
Monday but had been feeling
ill for several days. The team
sent him to the doctor Thurs-
day for further tests and eval-
uation.
Crennel expects the 25-
year-old player to be dis-
charged later in the day, but
said Winslow could be kept
longer. Citing patient privacy
laws, Crennel did not provide
specifics on Winslow's illness.
"His arms and legs aren't
falling off or anything like
that," said Crennel, adding the
Pro Bowler was questionable
for Monday's game.
Crennel said he has spoken
with Winslow, who has had to
play through pain throughout
most of his four-year NFL
career.
"He's a competitive play-
er," Crennel said. "We all
know he has. had some
injuries that he has had to deal
with and he's played through
them, and at times we've had
to manage him so that he can
play through them. We know
that he'll be out there (Mon-
day) if at all possible. If it's
possible that he can be there,
he'll be there."
If Winslow can't play, Steve
Heiden most likely will start
and backup Darnell Dinkins
will get more playing time.
Winslow has had four oper-
ations on his right knee, and
following one of them needed
surgery after he got a staph
infection. He missed the 2005
season because of a near-fatal
motorcycle crash.
Last season, Winslow had
82 receptions for 1,106 yards.


Dementieva set to face




Jankovic in semifinals

ELENA DEMENTIEVA serves to Nadia Petrova yesterday at Kremlin Cup
in Moscow...


. By LEONID CHIZHOV
Associated Press Writer
MOSCOW (AP) Top-
ranked Jelena Jankovic defeat-
ed Flavia Pennetta 7-6 (6), 6-3
Friday to advance to the semi-
finals of the Kremlin Cup.
"It was a tough match for me
today and I didn't play the way
I wanted to," Jankovic said. "I
felt a bit tired and was strug-
gling."
The,23-year-old Serb will
face defending champion Elena
Dementieva, who beat Nadia
Petrova 6-4, 4-6, 7-6 (6).
"She is the strongest player
in the world," Dementieva said
of Jankovic. "She's playing ter-
rific tennis and has just won
back-to-back titles on differ-
ent surfaces. It won't be an
easy match."
Jankovic took the top rank-
ing from Serena Williams on
Monday after winning back-to-
back titles at the China Open
and Porsche Grand Prix in
Stuttgart, Germany. Jankovic
will retain her top ranking next
week regardless of the results
in Moscow because Williams,
the runner-up in Moscow last
year, pulled out because of
injury.
After trading serves two
times in the first set, Jankovic
broke, Pennetta for a 6-5 lead
but the Italian broke back to
force a tiebreaker. Pennetta
was 3-0 up, then 5-3 down, but
evened it 6-6 before returning
wide on the next two points.
The 18th-ranked Italian, 3-2
up after breaking Jankovic in
the opening game of the sec-
ond set, saved five break points
in the sixth game before
Jankovic finally broken her on
the 12th deuce to even it 3-3.
The Serb won three more con-
secutive games to close the
match.
Petrova went 4-3 up in the
all-Russian match with a break

set, but Dementieva won three

consecutive games to take the
set. Dementieva was leading 4-

came back strongly and won
five consecutive games to level
the match at one set each.
In the third, Dementieva
again took a 4-1 lead but Petro-
va rallied back to 4-4 and both
players held their serves to

France, Portugal already



lagging in Cup qualifying


* By ROBERT MILLWARD
AP Soccer Writer
LONDON (AP) France
coach Raymond Domenech is
in danger of losing his job only
two games into World Cup
qualifying. Carlos Queiroz is
under pressure barely two
months after taking the Por-
tugal job.
The two teams are fourth in
their qualifying groups, fully
knowing that only those
nations finishing atop each
group are sure to go to South
Africa for the 2010 tourna-
ment.
While World Cup holder
Italy, European champion
Spain, Germany and England
are in strong positions even
this early in the qualifying
stage, France and Portugal
have fallen behind and face
tough away games Saturday.
France goes to Romania and
Portugal visits Sweden.
Defeats will put more pressure
on the two coaches.
While Queiroz is new to the
job and almost certainly will
get more time to get things
right, Domenech already is
barely hanging onto his posi-
tion after France's dismal first-
round elimination at Euro
2008.
The French federation
warned that Domenech could
be out if the team does not get
a good start to World Cup
qualifying. After a 3-1 loss to
Austria, France rallied with a
2-1 victory over Serbia, but a
defeat in Bucharest on Satur-
day will send the team down to
fifth in Group 7, with only the
Faeroe Islands below.
While France faces the
Romanians without defender
William Gallas and midfielder
Lassana Diarra, Portugal
coach Queiroz has four key
players missing because of
injury.
Ricardo Carvalho, Deco,
Maniche and Simao Sabrosa
will all miss the game in Swe-
den. But Cristiano Ronaldo
returns after a long layoff with
an ankle injury. He missed the
4-0 win at Malta and the 3-2


loss at home to Denmark,
when Portugal conceded two
goals in the last minute.
Real Madrid central defend-
er Pepe says Portugal can't
afford to fall too far behind.
"We don't want to end up
depending on the results of
other teams," he said. "It's
going to be difficult (against
Sweden), but if we play like


we did in our best periods in
the last two qualifiers we'll be
able to win."
Italy goes to Bulgaria lead-
ing Group 8 but with half its
regular lineup injured, includ-
ing goalkeeper Gianluigi Buf-
fon and playmaker Andrea
Pirlo.
Marcello Lippi, who
coached Italy to the 2006


world title and returned to the
job after Euros, has a group
of untried youngsters and is
looking forward to seeing
them blend with the experi-
enced players.
"That's the consequence of
the enthusiasm I see in these
guys. We've had an excellent
week of preparation," he said.
"The older players are mixing


together perfectly with the
newer players. I'm going to
Sofia with a lot of confidence."
Spain has a two-point lead
at the top of Group 5 and has
gone 25 matches without
defeat. Vicente del Bosque
takes his team to Estonia on
Saturday and then to Belgium.
After failing to reach Euro
2008, England rallied with an
impressive 4-1 victory at Croa-
tia and now has matches
against Kazakhstan at Wem-
bley on Saturday and at
Belarus on Wednesday.
Germany hosts Russia in a
meeting of the Euro 2008 run-
ner-up and a semifinalist. The
Germans top Group 4 with
four points and the Russians
are a point behind, tied with
Wales.
With.seven players side-
lined, Group 9 leader Nether-
lands has called goalkeeper
Edwin van der Sar out of
international retirement for
games against Iceland and
Norway.


Former Olympic track star



sentenced to five years in



prison for dealing heroin


* By STEVE SZKOTAK
Associated Press Writer
NORFOLK, Va. (AP) -
Disgraced former Olympic
track star Tim Montgomery,
once dubbed "the world's
fastest man," was sentenced
Friday to five years in. prison
for dealing heroin to an infor-
mant.
"I was blind I never had a
job in my life," Montgomery
told U.S. District Judge Jerome
B. Friedman. "I did the wrong
thing."
Montgomery, 33, will serve
the five-year sentence after he
completes a 46-month prison
term for an unrelated convic-
tion in New York.
Under an agreement with
the government, he pleaded
guilty in July to possession and
distribution of more than 100
grams of heroin. He received
the minimum term under fed-
eral sentencing guidelines.
A prosecutor described
Montgomery's athletic skills as
"super-human," but said he
had squandered his talent and
the acclaim and the money that
came with it. Montgomery won
an Olympic gold medal in the
400-meter relay at the 2000
games and a silver in the same
event four years earlier. A dop-
ing scandal wiped his achieve-
ments from the books.
In a nearly empty court-
room, Montgomery accepted
his sentence accompanied only
by his lawyer, James Brocco-
letti. His parents and siblings
traveled in a van from South
Carolina for the sentencing, but
did not arrive before the 20-
minute hearing ended, Broc-
coletti said.
"What we find here is some-
one who has wrecked his life,"
the prosecutor, Eric M. Hurt,
told the court.
He noted that Montgomery's
heroin arrest came as he await-
ed sentencing on a check-kiting
scheme that ultimately sent

him to prison.
"He has chosen to ignore
every benefit given to him,"
Hurt said.
Montgomery, hands clasped
behind his back, softly
addressed Friedman.
"I just want to say I've very
sorry for what I've done," he
told the judge. "I'm sorry to
my community and my fami-
ly."
Friedman ordered five years


of supervised release and drug
t Eating after Montgomery
serves his heroin sentence. He
also called Montgomery "total-
ly irresponsible" for fathering
four children with four differ-
ent women, including fellow
disgraced Olympian Marion
Jones.
Montgomery's heroin prose-
cution is based on four drug
sales he made in 2007 and 2008
in Norfolk and Virginia Beach.
A Drug Enforcement Agency
informant made buys that were
either electronically video-
taped, tape-recorded or wit-
nessed by agents, according to
court records.
Montgomery's Olympic
medals and his world-record
9.78-second performance in the
100-meter dash were wiped
clean after he was linked to the
investigation of BALCO, the
West Coast lab at the center
of the steroid scandal in sports.
He also was banned from track
for two years.
While he never tested posi-
tive for drugs, he retired in
December 2005 after the ban
was imposed.
Last year, he admitted help-
ing his former coach, Olympic
champion Steve Riddick, and
others cash $1.7 million in
stolen and counterfeit checks.
Riddick is serving a five-year
prison term. Montgomery's for-
m, r companion, Jones, is serv-
ing a six-month prison sentence
for lying to investigators about
the check-fraud scam and using
steroids.

MARK KNOWLES (left) and Mahesh Bhupathi picked up their second victory and are now into the quarterfinal of the men's doubles at the Bank
Austria Tennis Trophy Tournament...



Knowles, Bhupathi reach quarters


* By BRENT STUBBS
Senior Sports Reporter

MARK Knowles and
Mahesh Bhupathi picked up'
their second victory and are
now into the quarterfinal of
the men's doubles at the Bank
Austria Tennis Trophy Tour-
nament.
The Bahamiar-Indian duo,
the number two seeds in the
week-long tournament in
Vienna, Austria, had to go
right down the wire before
they prevailed with identical
set scores of 7-6, 7-6 over the
unseeded team of Martin
Damm and Pavel Vizner.


Knowles and Bhupathi will
play the No.4 seeded team of
Max Mirnyi and Andy Ram
in the round of eight when the
tournament continues today
at Stadhalle.
If they win, they will face
one of the two unlikely teams
they expected to survive on
the other half of the draw.
Top seeds Daniel Nestor
and his partner Nenad
Zimonjic were ousted by the
team of Philipp Petzschner'
and'Alexander Peya 6-4, 3-6,
10-6 in their second round
match.
And Feliciano Lopez and
Fernando Verdasco got a
walk-over against the team of


Jurgen Melzer and Tommy
Roberto after they eliminated
the No.3 team of Mariusz
Fyrstenberg and Marcin
Matkowski.
It's the first tournament for
Knowles and Bhupathi since
they played in the US Open in
Flushing Meadows, New York
in August where Knowles suf-
fered a slight knee injury.
Knowles and Bhupathi are
looking for their first tourna-
ment win since they clinched
back-to-back titles in Mem-
phis, Tennessee and Dubai in
February and March.
They are also hoping to
become the fourth team to
clinch their berth in the year-


ending Tennis Masters Cup
Doubles in Shanghai, China
in November. After Vienna,
Knowles and Bhupathi will
travel to Madrid, Spain for the
Mutua Madrilena Masters,
starting on October 12, fol-
lowed by the Basel, Switzer-
land from October 20 and
then Paris, France from Octo-
ber 26. The Tennis Masters
Cup start on November 10 in
Shanghai.
At the completion of the
tour, Knowles is expected to
gear up for his annual Mark
Knowles Celebrity Tennis
Tournament that will be
staged at Atlantis in Decem-
ber.


Stage set for Catholic Diocesan Primary Schools basketball tourney


* By BRENT STUBBS
Senior Sports Reporter.
bstubbs@tribunemedia.net
THE stage has been set for the rising
young stars to strut their stuff in the
annual Catholic Diocesan Primary
Schools basketball tournament.
The popular tournament that show-
cases six competitive teams from the
Catholic Primary Schools will get
underway on Monday, October 20.
Last year, the St Thomas Sparks,
coached by Nkomo Ferguson, turned
the tables on St Bede's Crushers when
it counted the most to win the title in
the best-of-three championship series.


St Bede's, coached by Donnie Cul-
mer, and Freemantle posted a 5-0 win-
loss record to finish in the top spot at
the end of the regular season. St
Thomas More suffered their only defeat
at the hands of St Bede's.
This year, the two championship
teams won't square off in the season
opener. Instead, St Thomas More will
play host to Xaviers, coached by Nelson
"Mandella" Joseph.
Larry Wilson, former vice president
of the Bahamas Basketball Federation
and now treasurer of the Bahamas
Olympic Association, will deliver the
keynote address during the brief cere-
monies to kick off the season.


League co-ordinator Patricia Coakley
said this should be another competi-,
tive season to watch.
"1I know the teams have been prac-
ticing a lot. I haven't seen any of them,"
she stated. "I'm sure it's going to be
competitive because all of the teams
want to win."
There is one new addition to the
league with Our Lady's Blue Flames
acquiring the services of Rohan Parks,
who came over from St Vincent De
Paul in Grand Bahama.
"I don't know what their team look
like, but I know they have been work-
ing very hard and they are eager to play
under coach Parks," Coakley noted.


This summer, Coakley said a lot of
the coaches encouraged their players
to participate in some of the basket-
ball camps that were held and they have
indicated that they are quite enthused
about their level of play since they
returned to school.
One of the schools to watch is St
Cecilia's Strikers, whose coach Leo
Delaney has not settled in after getting
his feet wet last year when he was trans-
ferred from St Thomas More in a swipe
with Ferguson.
Delaney has had an impressive
record at St Thomas, who along with St
Bede's, has won more titles than any of
the other schools in the league.


Mexico


expects


tougher


match


against


Jamaica


* By ANTHONY FOSTER
Associated Press Writer
KINGSTON, Jamaica
(AP) As expected, Mexi-
co is on the verge of clinch-
ing a place in the last round
of CONCACAF World Cup
qualifying.
A win at Jamaica on Sat-
urday would put Mexico into
the next round.
The Mexicans came away
3-0 winners in a home match
with Jamaica, but anticipate
a harder test this time
around.
"It is very difficult to
understand how Jamaica will
play," Mexico coach Sven-
Goran Erikssofi said. "The
truth is, it is complicated."
After three matches, Mex-
ico leads the four-team
Group 2 with nine points,
three ahead of Honduras.
Canada and Jamaica drew 1-
1 and have one point each.
Since losing to Mexico,
Jamaica has made several
changes, included firing
Rene Simoes as head coach
and replacing him with inter-
im coach Theodore Whit-
more.
"We know that he (Whit-
more) has called new players
who were not a part of the
first set of games; therefore
they are a rival we know
very little about," Eriksson
said.
Giovani dos Santos, Car-
los Vela and Rafael Mar-
quez will lead Mexico's bid
for victory. "I think we wil
secure qualification against
Jamaica," the Swede Wdded.
"After that I think the game
against Canada wi.I be very
easy, although al'23 players
are in consideration for the
games.
Whitmore believes his
squad, led by Jamal Ryce-
Campbell, Ricardo Fuller,
Luton Shelton and Damion
Stewart, is capable of beat-
ing Mexico. "We're gunning
for those three points and
nothing less," Whitmore
said. "Nothing less will be
tolerated come Saturday,
and I think the players have
given me the encouragement
that they can take these
three valuable points."

RB( opens new branch in


ABACO

THE Royal Bank of Canada this week
unveiled a $1.1 million investment in Abaco
with the opening of its newest branch office.
RBC has had a presence in Abaco since
1988 and has been serving people in the
Bahamas for the past 100 years.
The first branch in Marsh Harbour was
around 2,400 square feet, but RBC's new
home is nearly three times this size and
demonstrates the bank's growth in that com-
munity.
Construction for the new banking centre
began in early 2007 and was completed in
September, 2008.
Vice-president and country head of RBC
Nathaniel Beneby said this branch opening
represents yet another historic event in the
long partnership between RBC and the
Bahamas, in particular the community of
Abaco.
"This year will make a century since we
began serving clients in the Bahamas," he 1
said.
"We opened our first office in Abaco
exactly 20 years ago, so it is fitting that today
we are relocating our main Abaco branch to
a new and grander facility.
"We are proud to have become a fixture in
this community and to continue serving
clients in this vital community."
Head of Caribbean Banking for RBC
Ross McDonald added: "RBC's recent
acquisition of RBTT makes RBC Royal
Bank of Canada one of the largest financial
institutions in the Caribbean. "But more
than size, our goal is to be number one in
client service and satisfaction. As part of this
community, we will continue invest in and
give back to Abaco and the people who live
and work here," he said.
In keeping with RBC's commitment to
assist the communities where the bank does.
business, a number of special presentations
were made.
Cheques were presented to two organisa-
tions in Abaco. The first donation was made
to Every Child Counts, the Abaco-based
school that supports the learning of children
with special needs.
The second was presented to support the
ongoing needs at Central Abaco Primary
School.
"With this new and expanded office RBC
has the capacity to continue its long and
prosperous partnership with the Abaco com-
munity and RBC's continued growth in the
Bahangas," said Joyce Riviere, RBC's area
manager for Family Islands.


WENDY Craigg, governor for the Central
Bank of the Bahamas, cuts the ribbon at the
opening of RBC's new branch in Marsh Har-
bour, Abaco, as Ross McDonald, head of
Caribbean Banking; Nathaniel Beneby, vice-
president and country head, Bahamas, Royal
Bank of Canada; Antonio Eyma, Royal Bank
of Canada branch manager, Marsh Harbour,
Abaco; Joyce Coleby-Riviere, area manager
for Family Islands, Royal Bank of Canada and
Mr Cephas Cooper, senior island administra-
tor, Central Abaco, looks on.

Sandals Royal Bahamian
launches new wedding gazebo


Sandals Royal Bahamian, one of
the Caribbean's leading wedding
destinations, enhanced its creden-
tials with the unveiling of a new

ing the resort's current wedding locations.
Mr Keesler said: "We are delighted to
open up this beautiful setting to both the
people of the Bahamas and our visiting

Stapledon School

holds special

assembly to

honour parents

UNDER the theme "Parents and Teach-
ers as Partners", the Stapledon School held
a special assembly in honour of parents.
The goal of the assembly was to encour-
age parents to become more involved in
the lives of their children by taking an active
interest in what they do at school.
Bringing remarks on behalf of Minister of
Education Carl Bethel was director of high-
er education and lifelong learning, Dr Leon
Higgs.
Dr Higgs said that students win when
the home, school and church come togeth-
er.
He commended the staff for taking time
to express gratitude to parents, and indi-
cated that the partnership was beneficial to
the students and the school.
Dr Higgs explained the value of forming
partnerships, indicating that the Ministry of
Education in collaboration with the Nation-
al Commission on Special Education
(NCOSE), and the Inter-American Devel-
opment Bank (IDB), is working to interest
the public in providing better opportunities
for persons with disabilities, and raising
the quality of special education pro-
grammes.
In conclusion, Dr Higgs thanked the prin-
cipal Angela Butler, along with the Staple-
don family, and asked them to continue to
collaborate with parents so that every child
may have the opportunity to learn.


Bahamians who have a similar kind of potential
need to realise that there is no viable culture that is
monolithic.
They need to know that their callings are very
individualistic and pursue them.
What this nation needs to do is bring out more of
the younger and receptive minds.

The organ recital of

DP Sean Jackson
T HE organ recital of Dr Sean Jackson on Sep-
tember 28 begun punctually at 8pm. He per-
formed to full capacity at the parish church of the
Most Holy Trinity to an eager and appreciative audi-
ence.
To set the atmosphere, the audience sung "When
in Our Music God is Glorified."
Dr Jackson began his recital with delightful com-
mentaries that were reminiscent of Leonard Bern-
stein in his musical features.
Immediately, when he sat down, he was quite
composed and his performance was stable and
devoid of tension.
The first piece was a robust execution of "Now
Thanks We all Our God" by Johnson Sebastian
Bach.
It was in this vork that he demonstrated his obvi-
ous flare for organ playing.
The tune was prominently heard over the back-
ground of intricate and clearly articulated passage
work.
The melody was interestingly interspersed with
episodes.
It showed the flamboyant side of its arranger Vir-
gil Fox, the virtuoso organist.
The acoustics in the church were ideal and none of
the clarity of the articulation was lost.
This polished delivery set the pace for the rest of
the performance.
Following this, was a fitting contrast, the "Adagio"
from the "Toccata, Adagio and Fugue in C major"
also by the same composer.
After a brief dissertation about the work and
establishing a rapport with the audience, Dr Jackson
performed this piece.
This is a melancholic work that typified others
like Bach's "Air on a G string."
Again it was proficient in execution and accurate,
but I thought this piece could have been a little
more flowing like the aforementioned work.
Dr Jackson's gift for human relations was in evi-
dence when he invited the audience to participate by
clapping to the rhythms of the of the "Fugue a la
Gigue" by Bach.
We were able to recognize the melody as it reoc-
curred, becoming grander and grander with each
successive hearing.
His precise playing and the acoustics made it eas-
ier to delineate the fugal voices.
In the "Carillon de Westminster" by Louis Vierne,
everybody was able to recognize the London chimes'
melody played over the fast-moving notes.
The audience enjoyed the different sound tex-
tures that he was able to get with the playing of the
popular tune.
The second section was virtuostic in the co-ordi-
nation of both'the hands and the feet. *
The following piece, the "Fantasie in E-flat" which
he played just before the interval, was aptly-placed,
It is typical of many of Saint Saens's works. He is
playful, light, humorous and whimsical, especially in
his solo piano works and piano concert. This work
is quite pretty and the organist brought out the com-
poser's nature. The second part was more rousing in
contrast.
After the interval, the "Tuba Tune in D major" by
C S Lang begun with a burst of energy.
Dr Jackson went from manual to manual, demon-
strating the different shades and colours of the work.
In the "Final in B flat major" by CUsar Frank, a
solemn melody begun in the pedals and was inter-
woven through the piece.
He did a good job in switching from the melody in
the pedals to the manuals without breaking the con-
tinuity at any point.
This work was quite involved musically and tech-
nically and in both aspects the performer proved
himself worthy.
Next, we had a reprieve with "Entry of Tore-
adors" from "Carmen" by George Bizet which was
more popular and lighter.
The performer executed this with very crisp stac-
catos in the left hand and a delightful melody in the
right hand capturing the festive mood of the event.
I think that the audience readily took to this work
because of its familiarity and its immediate appeal.
He ended the programme with "Sortie or Organ
in E-flat major" by Louis J A Lefebure-Wely.
This composer was arguably the most celebrated
organist of his time and gave the audience what
they wanted to hear dazzling improvisations
according tb the fashionable style of that time.
One can see why Dr Jackson wanted to leave this
impressive display of fireworks for the final piece in
the programme.
He had enough energy to bring the message
across.
The encore. "The Winder Toccata from the 5th
Symphony" was a veritable tour de force and not
once did the stamina of the performer seem to dimin-
ish. This toccata is a festive work usually played at
weddings or at Easter time. celebrating the resur-
rection of Jesus Christ.
Dr Jackson certainly captured the joyous mood of
the event with a very pretty tune which we kept
hearing in different guises amidst a rapid moving.
clear background with arpeggios. There was also a
continuous three note rhythmic motive which also
sustained interest.
This show-stopper came to a conclusion with sev-
eral grand and stately chords.
I am sure that this recital proved a gratifying expe-
rience for the entire audience.
There was not one person that was not satisfied.
What was very impressive about Dr Jackson was
the way he effortlessly executed the challenguing
pieces in the second half of the programme and at the
end of the evening was unfazed by it all.
His physical and mental stamina are commend-
able.
It is hoped that Bahamians will observe that the
islands in the region like Barbados, Trinidad and
Jamaica are not content to produce just enough to
cope, but are going to the extreme limits of their
potential.
They are examples of what can be done in the
realm of classical music regardless of ethnicity,
