THE Bahamas Christian
Council is demanding that
every musical act that comes
to the Bahamas must be
screened by them before they
are allowed to perform at any
venue in the country.
This comes after the protest
by Bahamas Against Crime
against the headlining perfor-

artist Mavado at this year's
Millennium Countdown con-
cert, scheduled to begin today.
President of the Bahamas
Christian Council, Rev Patrick


Paul, at press conference x es-

concern for Christian virtues,
should not be given free access
into the Bahamian communi-

TENSION continues at the Straw Mar-

have returned to work and that a govern-

Stall owners upset over the return of the
Haitians accused Minister of National Secu-

vendors to bring back their Haitian workers,
contrary to Minister of Immigration
Branville McCartney's efforts to get them
out.

armed robbery

investigation,

say police

POLICE are appealing to the
public to assist them in the
investigation of an armed rob-
bery of the Shell Service Station
on Wulff and Marathon Roads.
Shortly after 8pm on Tues-
day, a masked gunman entered
the service station and robbed
an employee of cash.
The robber then escaped in a
waiting, heavily tinted, Honda
Accord with the registration
number 196319.
Police are now searching for
the gunman and the vehicle.
Anyone who has seen this
vehicle is asked to contact the
police at 919, 502-9991, 328-

Residents voice

anger over

Eastern Road

project
Several residents living in the
eastern part of New Providence
yesterday expressed irritation
upon seeing workers "re-paving
Eastern Road and immediately
afterwards, digging it up again."
Water and Sewerage began
digging trenches in the road to
replace old pipes in the area
before the start of the school
year.
One angry San Souci resident
yesterday told The Tribune: "At
this moment in time they are
paving back up what supposedly
was finished and Water and
Sewerage has a digger digging it
up right behind them.
"It's pathetic. Never in my
life have I seen a project take
this long. We've had enough!"
A message left for general
manager of Water and Sewage,
Godfrey Sherman, was not
returned up to press time.

In an article published in
The Tribune on Wednesday, it
was stated that former prime
minister Perry Christie accept-
ed an offer from the Chinese
government in 2004 to give the
Bahamas $30 million to build a
national stadium. According to
Minister of Youth and Sports
Desmond Bannister, this is a
"common misconception." The
truth of the matter is that the
Chinese government offered
to build a stadium, which,
when completed, would be val-
ued at $30 million.
It was also suggested that
when completed the new
national stadium will provide a
venue for softball and baseball,
after the stadia formerly used
for these sports were demol-
ished to make way for the new
national stadium in 2006.
Instead, said Mr Bannister, a
$1 million allocation was made
in this year's budget to build
separate venues where those
games can be played.


Obama goes

prime time
MIAMI
Democratic presidential candi-
date Barack Obama plunked
down $4 million for a campaign-
closing television ad last night,
summoning voters to "choose
hope over fear and unity over
division" in Tuesday's election,
according to the Associated Press.
Republican John McCain derided
the event as a "gauzy, feel-good
commercial," paid for with bro-
ken promises.
"America, the time for change
has come," Qbama said in the
final moments of the unusual ad,
a blend of videotaped moments
and a live appearance before
thousands in Sunrise, Florida.
"In six days we can choose an
economy that rewards work and
creates jobs and fuels prosperity
starting with the middle class,"
Obama said.
The 30-minute ad, aired on
CBS, NBC, Fox and several cable


networks, came just days from
the end of a race in which Obama
holds the lead in polls nationally
as well as in most key battle-
ground states as he bids to
become the first black president.
Republicans and even some
Democrats said the race was
tightening as it neared the end.

COURT OF APPEAL: Angelo 'Nasty' Brennen


Convicted murderer's life sentence upheld


* By NATARIO McKENZIE'

THE Court of Appeal has
upheld the life sentence of a
man convicted of the October
2004 daytime slaying of a moth-
er and the attempted murder of
her daughter.
The Crown had appealed the
life sentence of Angelo 'Nasty'
Brennen on the ground that it is
unduly lenient. Brennen was
initially sentenced to death in
November 2005 for the murder
of Ruthmae Pinder, which took
place on October 29, 2004. Ms
Pinder was shot and killed at a
bus stop on Farrington Road,
while standing. with two of her
daughters Calvonya Grant
and Amy Pinder. Ms Pinder
was shot twice that day, one
bullet puncturing her lung and
the other her left side. Ms
Grant, her daughter, was also.
shot during the incident.
According to evidence adduced
at the trial, Brennen and the Ms
Pinder had been in a relation-
ship for about two years. Ms
Pinder had attempted to end

homes in the Dignity II Sub-
division while they stand
largely completed, but with
homeowners locked out, a
frustrated buyer claimed yes-
terday.
The woman buyer, who
wished to remain anonymous,
said her house was finished a
year and a half ago in April,
2007, but the Ministry of
Housing has yet to offer those
who put down deposits for the
homes a date to move in.
Now, with,l.,h1g mortgage
payments due to start at the
beginning,of November, the
concerned buyer is worried
about how she will be able to
meet that $932 per month
obligation while still paying
$650 rent on her current
accommodation. The woman
claims she was told by Leslie
Dean, chief housing officer at
the Ministry of Housing, that
the delay came about because
infrastructure to deliver elec-
tricity and water to the homes
has yet to be completed. In
her opinion, the ministry is
"dragging its feet".
Yesterday, Minister of
Housing Kenneth Russell
denied this was the case, blam-
ing the delay on the former
government instead.
Confirming that there was
no infrastructure installed for
the homes when his party
came to office in May, 2007,
he said the hold-up in moving
ahead with installation of
water, sewerage and electrici-
ty all came down to the former
government leaving the Ingra-

of Ms Grant. In light of the
Privy Council's 2006 decision in
the appeals of Forrester Bowe
and Trono Davis which ren-
dered the mandatory death sen-
tence for murder invalid, Bren-
nen was re-sentenced in June
2007 to a term of life imprison-
ment. Crown prosecutors how-
ever contended that the trial
judge had failed to attach suffi-
cient weight to the facts and cir-
cumstances of the case and that
the sentence was unduly lenient.
In their ruling however, the
judges of the Court of Appeal
stated: "There is in our view,
clear evidence to suggest that
the motive for the murder was
rooted in his jealously and prob-
ably despair, at the probability
of losing the affection of the
object of his preoccupation or
obsession. It is basic humanity
that the courts are enjoined to


examine in determining
whether the appropriate and
proportionate punishment
should be less than death."
The ruling went on to state:
"In the final analysis the judge


foundthat there were mitigating
factors present and that the
offence did not fall within the
worst case category to justify
the imposition of the death
penalty. We cannot say that his
conclusion fell beyond the
ambit of disagreement or that
he was so plainly wrong that the
only legitimate conclusion is
that he erred in the exercise of
Jhis discretion."

"There was nothing we
could do if we had no money.
But the infrastructure is now
in place and we are now mov-
ing expeditiously to get all the
houses repaired so that the
people can move into the
houses," said Mr Russell.
He added: "The electricity
was completed about a week
ago, the sewerage system was
completed about a month ago,
and the water was completed
about a month and a half ago.
"We hope that we can get
those people in there by
Christmas at least," said the
minister.

ALTHOUGH what she said was politically
incorrect, it was true. It was something that
should have been said a long time ago. It is a
truth that needs no debate, but calls for imme-
diate action if our tourist-based economy is to be
saved.
If Tourism Director General Vernice
Walkine had her way she would open employ-
ment in the tourism industry to foreigners. This
would give the industry a larger pool from which
to draw. There would also be freedom to fire
those who did not measure up.
In her view the service industry was suffering
because too many of its workers were not meet-
ing international standards. However, if the
industry had a larger employment pool from
which to draw "those people who are Bahami-
an citizens who are employed, would know that
if they didn't buckle up and do what they are
supposed to do, they would be fired right'away,
because they can be replaced immediately."
She agreed with her radio talk show host
that visitors didn't really care who served them.
They were only interested in receiving the ser-
vice for whiich they had saved to afford their
vacation.
This is what has always held the Bahamas
back the slackness of a work force that knows
no matter how badly its members perform, they
cannot be replaced.
And they cannot be replaced because no one
is available to replace them.
It is this protection of mediocrity that has
always held this country back. Businesses can
only progress as far and as fast as their workers
permit.
And if they refuse to improve or exert them-
selves there is little that employers can do -
other than fire them and do the job themselves.
Politicians are wasting their breath talking
about improving the civil service without hold-
ing them to performance standards, which, if not
met would cost them their jobs. Instead these
people perpetuate their incompetence as they
are moved from one ministry to another. This
cradle to the grave crutch, never made an hon-
ourable, productive citizen of anyone. Why
should anyone make an effort, if the state
ensures a comfortable job from which they can-
not be fired?
No wonder it's the ambition of many
Bahamians to be a civil servant.
,"Honestly," said Ms Walkine, referring only
to the slackness in tourism, "there are some I
would really get rid of, but you know, it's not
that easy. We don't have the ability in this coun-
try. We can't fire our citizens." This is true, so
what does the country expect?
All this goes back a very long way. The late

Sir Lynden Pindling in his climb to power made
many pie-in-the-sky promises that were never
kept. Bahamians were encouraged to believe
that to be hewers of wood, and bearers of water
was beneath them didn't you know that that's
"Haitian work?" As a Bahamian recently
remarked, if it weren't for Haitian labour, this
country would collapse.
When the PLP came to power in 1967, they
were too anxious to dismiss those foreign civil
servants who, if their services had been retained,
could have trained Bahamians to replace them.
Instead unqualified Bahamians were catapulted
into jobs for which they were not prepared. It
has been a downhill slide ever since.
Over time there were those in the PLP who
seemed to believe that a darker skin gave them
a better chance of landing a lucrative job.
We vividly recall the day that a highly
respected Over-the-Hill businessman, then in his
senior years, came to see Sir Etienne Dupuch at
The Tribune. They had been friends for many
years. The fact that he had joined the PLP, had
not interfered with this friendship.
On this particular day Sir Etienne's friend
was visibly shaken.
We do not remember the details of his story,
but recall that he was at a PLP meeting where
persons were running for office. Sir Etienne's
friend had been nominated. A quarrel then
broke out when a young, loud mouth jumped up
and announced that he was more qualified for
the position. As far as anyone knew all this
young man had going for him was bumptious
youth, whereas the older gentleman had quali-
fications that could have benefited the young,
inexperienced party.'
The younger man ordered the older man to
roll up his sleeve and hold out his arm. The.
younger man did the same. The two arms were
held side by side. One was a deep chocolate
brown. The other was ebony black. The young
man offered nothing more as qualifications than
his blackness merit never entered into it.
Over the years this country has suffered
from the mediocrity that had become
entrenched in this party.
No matter how qualified a Bahamian, his
qualifications were not recognized or rewarded
unless he were a card-carrying PLP.
And if the.attitude of the young man who
had so upset Sir Etienne's friend were in fact
embraced by the party, then obviously the wor-
thiness of a PLP was also measured by the shade
of his skin.
If this country is to climb out of its Third
World morass, Bahamians are going to have to
demand that only persons of ability and integri-
ty lead them forward.

Mediocrity holding country back


EDITOR, The Tribune.
I recently attended the Glob-
alisation Conference that was
held at the Sheraton Nassau
Beach. This conference was
sponsored by the Bahamas
Chamber of Commerce and
other business organizations.
The special guest at the session
I attended was the Minister of
State for Finance the Hon.
Zhivargo Laing.
As I sat and listened to the
young minister I could not help
but reflect on the disastrous
state of our economy and how
successive governments since
1967 have brought this cata-
strophe on our country. In his
ramblings, the young minister
attempted to explain the gov-
ernment's response to the coun-
try's economic crisis. In doing so
he alluded to the fact that Cuba
was coming back and would be
a threat to our Tourism product.
It amazes me that every time
an official in our country men-
tions our tourism industry they
always find a way to bring Cuba
into the picture. Cuba is always
talked about as though we in
the Bahamas did not have a
tourism product of our own.
Unfortunately, the people
who are in Government today
and those who have governed
since 1967 have forgotten their
motivation and have lost their
way.
This is especially the case
with this present administration,
since they are now able to asso-
ciate with people who would
not have talked with them
before.
These hungry belly full are
like the messenger who stayed
too long at the King's table, not
only did he (the messenger) for-
get his message but he also for-
got his way. '
Of course, I hold no disap-
proval of a messenger who
becomes weary and finds it nec-
essary to replenish himself
because he is hungry and tired.
However, he should not allow
his belly to cause him to lose
his way and forget his message.
There was a time in the
Bahamas when every Ameri,
can visitor was allowed to bring
back to their country, the USA,
5qts of liquor or alcoholic bev-
erage, regardless of age, gen-
der, or race.
As a veteran in the Hospital-
ity Industry, it is good when one
is able to retain and is able to
recognize the facts as they once
were.
Another of these facts is a
story about Adam Clayton
Powell. At the time he was a
senior and a very powerful
influential member of Congress.
Mr Powell introduced a bill in
the American Legislature which
raised concerns about the
American liquor industry.

FNM should -stick to Hubert

Ingraham, a proven winner!
EDITOR, The Tribune.
During my traveling throughout New Providence, I've heard
"mild" conversations about whether or not the Prime Minister
will lead the FNM into the next general elections in 2012, or who
will lead the FNM, or who has the ability to lead the FNM.
I've already scrutinised the sitting Members of Parliament and
Cabinet Ministers and concluded that neither has what it takes "at
this time" to win the next general election for the FNM. Prime Min-
ister Ingraham is a winner. And he is a politician in a class all by
himself. In 2007, he delivered the knockout blow to the PLP. And
in 2012 he will be needed to put the dagger in the heart of the PLP.
Recent alleged events and many more are evidence why the PLP
needs to stay in opposition for at least another twenty years.
The leadership of Prime Minister Ingraham is needed badly to
protect us from the greedy and selfish PLPs who continue to
destroy the good name of this country. Those selfish PLPs among
them who act as if the public treasury is their personal bank account
need to stay in opposition.
The PLP is bad for this country. The PLP is bad for the next and
future generations of this country.
A word of advice to the hierarchy in the FNM, only Prime Min-
ister Ingraham can beat former Prime Minister Christie.

Row sparked by towing exercise goes on


* By LLOYD ALLEN
Tribune Staff Reporter
WHAT started as a claim of
police favouritism in a car towing
exercise has evolved into a row
over the enforcement of parking
zone guidelines.
Earlier this month, several
motorists who had parked long


Dowdeswell Street were surprised
to discover that the police had
towed more than a dozen vehicles.
The officers, from the Tourism
Police Station, claimed that the
cars were parked illegally and were
causing an obstruction to traffic.
Those whose cars were towed.
expressed anger that one car -
belonging to Baillou Hills MP Sid-


ney Collie was not removed.
They claimed the police were dis-
playing favouritism.
Information received by The
Tribune yesterday revealed that
Mr Collie's vehicle was actually
legally parked, in the one section of
Dowdeswell Street designated for
vehicle parking.
However, several other car own-


If you have an OLD CLUNKER
and want to get rid of it!


ir


iT


ers are now claiming they were
also parked in this very area, but
were nevertheless towed and had
to pay to recover their vehicles.
Sidney Cleare, senior superin-
tendent of the Road and Sign
Department, confirmed yesterday
that Mr Collie's vehicle was in fact
parked in an approved parking
zone.
Mr Cleare said no parking is
allowed on Dowdeswell Street
between Burnside Lane and
Church Street on the northern
curb, and between Burnside Lane
and Victoria Avenue on both
sides.
Parking is however allowed on
the southern curb of Dowdeswell
Street from Burnside Lane to
Church Street where Mr Collie's
family law firm is located.


When confronted with the
claims that other cars were parked
in the approved zone but unlike
Mr Collie's car were towed,
police said the owners should con-
sult the Police Traffic Division.
At the time of the towing exer-
cise, officers were verbally attacked
by on-lookers for not removing
Mr Collie's car.
The officers reportedly replied
that the law did not permit them to
remove a car with government
plates.
However, Police Superintendent
Charles Walkine from the Central
Division said: "You can't impede
an MP from moving to or from
the House of Assembly, but oth-
erwise there is nothing in the law
that says they can't be towed by
police."

Officials

examine

damage to

walkway at

Long Wharf

PUBLIC Works and
Transport Minister Neko
Grant, accompanied by
Nicole Campbell, under-sec-
retary in the Ministry, and
George Hutchinson, deputy
director of Public Works,
inspected damage to the
walkway at Long Wharf
caused by recent waves
crashing against the seawall.
Mr Hutchinson said the
ministry's first approach is to
lift the compromised side-
walk and excavate it with the
view of possibly replacing it
or making some modifica-
tion to prevent further
undermining.
"We are going to try to
save the face and if we see
that we cannot, the whole
thing will have to be
removed, redesigned, or
modified. The depth of the
excavation will be deter-
mined following an assess-
ment of the drawings. We
are having someone give us a
price to lift the slab in order
to do the estimation for an
inspection," he said.
Additionally, Mr Hutchin-
son said it is hoped that in a
day or two, a team from the
ministry will return to deter-
mine the extent of the dam-
age and put together a pro-
posal for repairs to begin as
soon as' possible.

yesterday.
The woman, Lerizia Bien-
Aime, 48, was one of a few
Haitians who was not escorted
out of the big 'market tent
when it was raided by immi-
.gration officers a few weeks
ago.
She was checked three
times by immigration officers
that day, but was finally left
alone because she held a work

Mrs Curry said Ms Bien-
Aime was hired because her
mother is unable to perform
many tasks at her Straw Mar-
ket stall.
Mr McCartney said though
the word 'handywoman' has
a wide scope of meaning, if
the individual is in possession
of the permit they should be
allowed to work.
"I don't see any difficulty
with that she has a right to be
there by all means," he said.
However, he admitted, the
language in the permit appli-
cation would have to be
reviewed to better understand
the worker's position.

coupled with the length of his
sentence for burglary, it was
open to the trial judge not to
impose the additional sentence
of flogging.
"In the result, we dismiss the
appellant's appeal against his
sentence for the burglary,
though while we consider it
severe, we do not consider it so
severe that we should interfere
with the Court of Appeal's rul-
ing, also stated, that the execu-
tion of the sentence of corporal
punishment be stayed for 21
days."
According to evidence at
Newbold's trial, Newbold broke
into the elderly woman's home
and attempted to rape her. The
incident took place on Cat
Island in July, 2004.
As he attempted to rape the
woman, however, she squeezed
his testicles to compel him to
desist. According to the evi-
dence, Newbold bit the wom-
an's arm in order to escape the
pain she was causing him. The
bite he inflicted on the elderly
woman was the basis of the
causing harm charge.
Supreme Court Justice Jon
Isaacs sentenced Newbold to 16
years imprisonment for burglary
- four years short of the maxi-
mum term of imprisonment that
can be imposed for the offence.

MINISTER OF Education Carl Bethel speaks to students at the National Careers Day, on October 28, 2008, at
the Kendal Isaacs Gymnasium.


Bahamas is 'in desperate


need of skilled labourers'


* By ERIC ROSE
Bahamas Information Services


THE Bahamas is in desperate need of skilled labour-
ers, especially medical technicians, engineers, plumbers
and electricians, Minister of Education Carl Bethel
said.
Speaking at the opening of National Careers Day on
Tuesday, Mr Bethel said the country needs more than
just doctors and lawyers. .
"We have a terrible need, a critical need, for actuaries
- those who study actuarial science. We need more
engineers. We need more allied health professionals -
persons working in medical technology, doing the lab
work. We need plumbers.
"We need electricians. We need people who can do
carpentry," he said.
Minister Bethel said that if Bahamian students are
not trained and given the opportunity to see "the dig-
nity that there is in the technical side of education",
there could be dire consequences for some, including
young Bahamian men.
"No, that is not the Bahamas that we want. That is
not the Bahamas we desire. That is not the vision we see
for our young men. We want you to come here today
and be exposed to the dignity of hard work," he said.
National Careers Day, the minister said, is the result
of the commitment of the public and private sectors and
is a valuable educational opportunity for Bahamian
youth.
"Today is the culmination of a very worthy initiative,


the National Careers Awareness Month, which was
embarked upon by the Department of Education for
the month of October," Minister Bethel said at the
National Careers Day opening ceremony at the Kehdal
Isaacs Gymnasium.
"Under the direction of the guidance counselling
unit of the special services section, the Department of
Education partnered with other government agencies,
corporate and civic organisati6ns to help to alleviate
some of the challenges facing our students who are
facing the work force."
SMr Bethel said in order for the Bahamas to remain
globally competitive, Bahamians must prepare their
youth with all the skills that will be necessary for them
to play a-" meaningfull role" in the emerging and devel-
oping economy.
The educating of students, he added, is important to
the further development of the country.
"If we do not do a good job in equipping you with the
skills, the tools, the aptitude, the attitude necessary to
be productive citizens in this democratic society, then
our society would be going on the wrong track," he said
to the students present.
"So it is important to give you what you need to be
successful."
The minister told the students that the National
Careers Day will enable them to have access to cutting-
edge information regarding many professions, and will
allow them to speak with professionals in various fields
and share ideas and network with peers and stake-
holders.

FROM page one
Paul said.
Mr Paul reflected on the late
1970s visit of the late Bob Marley
to the Bahamas, saying that -the
country has never been the same
since.
"These artists have a great
influence over our vulnerable
young people in particular. Lead-
ers and especially Christian lead-
ers must therefore be vigilant that
we only encourage those virtues
that will build our nation and not
those that undermine the very
essence of what we seek to
accomplish," Mr Paul said.
The Christian council said they
are also concerned with the
deceptive nature of the theme
being used for this year's Millen-
nium countdown concert: Unity
Through Music, God Above All.
"Therefore we must question
the promotion of a theme which
states 'Unity through music, God
above all' but showcases artists
whose presentations are directly
opposed to everything godly., and
decent.


"The brochures promoting the
event feature scantily-clad women
in very seductive poses and are
engulfed in overtones that incite
sexual connotations," Mr Paul
said ..
The Christian council indicated
that international reports have
revealed the Bahamas is the
world leader in reported crimes of
assault and rape against women.
I "We do not need anything that
remotely threatens to detract
from the respect and honour that
we should show to our Bahamian
women, our mothers, sisters and
daughters, who deserve better.
Our women need to be respected
and protected and not exposed
to further exploitation," the coun-
cil explained.
Mr Frank Forbes, rfanaging
director and proprietor of Sigma
Management, indicated that he
feels the root cause of crime in
the Bahamas is economic.
"We have about 4-5000
Bahamians that are directly
impacted by this concert and
directly receive financial benefit.
If I were not to have this concert


they would be banging on the
doors of the government for some
job or something else," Mr
Forbes said.
Mr Forbes explained that
: Mavadq has never been convicted
of any crime and may have some
language in a few of his songs that
persons may not approve of.
"I want the Bahamas to be a
safe place, too. If they had just
come to me and said they had a
problem with certain songs then I
would have said I won't allow him
to perform those songs," Mr
Forbes said.
Mr Paul made it clear that the
Christian council does wish for
the concert to go forward, but
would prefer if Mavado and
Bounty Killer were not allowed to
perform because of the position
we are now in as a country.
"As a nation we are currently
struggling to keep our young peo-
ple focused, to embrace moral
values that promote community,
decency and respect. In light of
this we call on the government to
not allow these artists to perform
in our country," Mr Paul said.

A FAMILY Island hotel is
bucking the current downward
trend in tourism by recording
its best season ever.
Glowing visitor reports on
tripadvisor.com helped Grand
Isle Resort and Spa in Emerald
Bay, Exuma, record its best
October ever.
The 78-villa luxury resort,
consistently ranked number
one in Exuma, is now ranked
number two overall in the
Bahamas according to the pop-
ular travel website.
Occupancy at the hotel is up
by more than 50 per cent over
last year this time, and the
hotel is set to open its newest
addition, a full-service spa, in
just a few weeks.
"The results surprised us a
bit too, given what we keep
hearing in the marketplace,"
said James Clabaugh, president
of EGI Limited, the developers
of the Exuma condo hotel.
"I am not sure what to
attribute it to except word of
mouth and people appreciat-
ing quality. The tougher the
times, the more discerning
those who can spend become."
Located just a few steps from
the beach and the Greg Nor-
man Golf Course in Emerald
Bay, Grand Isle's rates are not
for the "faint of pocket."
Rates start at nearly $500 a
night for a one-bedroom villa
and climb to almost $4,800 for
a 5,400-square foot, four-bed-
room penthouse.
Grand Isle hotel executives
are now worried that there will
not be enough seats on enoughh
planes to deliver guests who
want to book during the height
of the holiday season through
Spring, when the newly
expanded wedding packages
are expected to lure more
guests with families and
friends.
"We also have a new web-
site which we have received a
lot of compliments on, and
recently, we have had several
guests check in saying they
chose Grand Isle after reading
the reviews on
tripadvisor.com," said Mr
Clabaugh.
Tripadvisor.com is a popu-
lar website, which those in the
industry say can "make you or
break you" by its posting of
frank visitor reviews, which are
frequently more negative than
glowing.
However, reviews of Grand
Isle have been so positive that,
for the past few years, the


resort has consistently ranked
number one in Exuma. Recent-
ly, it moved up to number two
overall in the Bahamas, rank-
ing second only to Rock
House, a nine-room boutique
inn in Harbour Island.
Despite Grand Isle's success,
operating the resort in a tight
leisure travel market is a con-
stant balancing act between
cost containment and deliver-
ing quality.
"Operating a condo hotel
where revenue is split with unit
owners and satisfying the
requirements of a high-end
resort means constant vigi-
lance, particularly in this mar-
ket where fuel costs are unpre-


dictable and where resorts are
vulnerable to other forces dri-
ving demand," said Shervin
Penn, assistant manager.
"We have done some re-
structuring, outsourcing some
areas of operations to Exuma
businesses, and we continue to
look for ways to control
expenses while maintaining the
highest level of service. Service
is our top priority so we con-
stantly engage in training.
That's one area where you can-
not trim costs. It is ongoing and
essential. Looking ahead, we
would like to think our biggest
problem next year will be per-
suading airlines to increase air-
lift," she said.

'Amigo's Fund' established

to honour beloved potcake


THE Humane Society of Grand
Bahama (HSGB) and its hon-
ourary chairperson Frances Singer-
Hayward have announced the
establishment of the 'Amigo's
Fund'- a charitable trust in hon-
our of the late potcake star Amigo.
The fund will benefit the ani-
mals of Grand Bahama and the
entire Bahamas, and ultimately, it is
hoped, of other countries as well.
The HSGB said that Amigo's
Fund was established "to give sec-
ond chances to animals like Amigo,
who because of abuse and neglect
require extensive medical rehabil-
itative care at a cost that is not
always an option given the high
volume of homeless animals
brought to the Humane Society of
Grand Bahama and Humane Soci-
eties throughout the Bahamas."
This situation is exemplified by
the story of Amigo himself, a for-
mer stray potcake found in the


most pitiful condition who, rescued
and rehabilitated, went on to
become a poster dog for the HSGB
and all of its programmes.
Amigo also became a 'superstar'
in the Bahamas and Ambassador
of Hope on behalf of homeless and
challenged animals.
"It is hoped that Amigo's Fund
wlill thus enable HSGB and other
like-minded organizations to be
able to save the lives of many more
deserving animals who normally
would face an uncertain future due
to lack of funds to pay for dealing
with their tragic condition," the
HSGB said.
In addition, the fund will help
to support spay and neuter initia-
,tives "of which Amigo was such a
compelling and inspiring represen-
tative during his lifetime."
The fund will also serve to help
charitable efforts into the broader
areas of animal welfare through-


out the Bahamas and elsewhere.
"I am so thrilled for Amigo, as
this is the ultimate fulfillment of
his mission that of making the
world a better place for potcakes
and all animals," said Mrs Singer-
Hayward.
"It is so incredibly touching to
me that Amigo and his story
touched so many hearts, and that
wherever I go, people speak to me
of him.
"Amigo's Fund honours
Amigo's legacy and his wonderful
contribution to the betterment of
animal life, as their endearing and
charismatic 'rep,' raising awareness
to the tragic plight of so many ani-
mals in the Bahamas and the world
over, and I can only hope and pray
that there will be many more Ami-
gos' who are saved and given the
love and care that they so deserve
as a result of his and our efforts."
Managing director of the
Humane Society of Grand Bahama
Tip Burrows said, "On behalf of
. the Humane Society of Grand
' Bahama,we ae very excited about
the establishment of Amigo's Fund,
which is a wonderful tribute to
Amigo's memory.
"Hopefully this fund will allow
us to save many more animals, like
Amigo, who come to us in such
switched and yet treatable condi-
tion if we were only to have the
-reources-toJhelp them. We hope
the public will support Xlis initia-
tive, which will provide a tangible
means of helping the neediest of
animals," she said.

'doubles'

C& able Bahamas yesterday said sub-
scriber churn, and customer dis-
connections, "doubled" in the 2008
third quarter compared to levels
experienced in the first half and,
year-end 2007, indicating Bahamian consumers
are "feeling the pinch" and "some challenging
times" lie ahead.
Barry Williams, the company's vice-president of
finance, told Tribune Business yesterday that the
8.3 per cent revenue growth the BISX-listed firm
had enjoyed for the first nine months in 2008 had
largely been driven by growth in the Internet
and data segments of its business.
"On the cable side, we have been seeing some
drop-off in the basic as well as premium ser-
vices," Mr Williams told Tribune Business.
S"We've seen some drop when comparing the
Lt and second quarters to the third quarter.
ues from those two quarters were higher

respectively for first nine

than in the third quarter. I attribute that to what's
been happening in the economy. It's been a con-
tinuing drop in the last couple of months on the
cable side, and indicates some challenging times
ahead."
Some Cable Bahamas customers, such as those
at Pepsi-Cola, will have lost their jobs, while oth-
ers in the hotel industry will have been placed on
reduced work weeks. That, coupled with reduced

THE Government is aiming
to bring to the House of Assem-
bly, "hopefully even by the end
of the year", some "six or sev-

vices legislation designed to
chiefly clarify concerns raised
by the Caribbean Financial

Zhivargo Laing, minister of

it took office in May 2007 it had
been assessing the CFATF
report arid "moving towards
implementing those recom-
mendations which we believed
were reasonable and doable".
Such a proactive approach,
he added, would ensure the
Bahamas remained in line with
international best practices and
regulatory standards, helping to

A NEW $150 million exclu-
sive residential development on
Paradise Island is expected to
generate $13.5 million in stamp
tax revenues for the Govern-
ment, it was said yesterday, as
well as an additional annual $1.5
million in real property taxes
once completed.
Ocean Place on the Harbour,


the high-end development that
has been the subject of much
controversy, will consist of 79
luxury condominiums that are
currently under construction. It
is expected to be completed by
next summer.
Prices for residences in the
nine-storey complex range
between $1.4 million for a
ground floor two-bedroom unit
to upwards of $3 million for a
ninth floor two-storey pent-
house.
Some 200 Bahamian workers


have been employed in various
stages of the project's construc-
tion, which picked up in earnest
last year. Developers Peace
Holdings Ltd then had to peti-
tion the Supreme Court in Sep-
tember this year to remove a
'stop work' injunction secured
by one of its neighbours. That
matter was yesterday said to
have been settled.

Customs to need

THE Economic Partnership
.Agreement (EPA) will provide
the impetus for "meaningful
'reform" of Bahamas Customs, a
government minister telling Tri-
bune Business yesterday that
this would usher in greater
accountability and transparency
in the department's processes.
Zhivargo Laing, minister of
state for finance, said the Cus-

the Bahamas' obligations under
the trade agreement with the
European Union (EU) would
benefit this nation regardless of
whether the EPA existed or
not.

requiring most change, Mr
Laing said, given t-he import
duty-based nature of the
Bahamian tax system and gov-
ernment's reliance on Customs
to generate 60 per cent of its
annual revenues.
He was, though, unable to
give a date for when the
Bahamas would take the first
step to implement the EPA
agreement it signed'on Octo-

BEC:


'No objection' to


fuel surcharge review


THE Bahamas Electricity
Corporation's (BEC) chairman
yesterday said the Corporation
had "no objection" to an inde-
pendent body reviewing its fuel
surcharge calculations and how
they were arrived at.
Responding to comments
made by Dionisio D'Aguilar,
the Bahamas Chamber of Com-
merce's president, in Tribune
Business on Wednesday, Octo-
ber 22, 2008, Frederik Gottlieb


said in a statement that he was
surprised at the suggestion of a
lack of transparency on BEC's
part when it came to calculating
fuel surcharges on consumer
bills.
"BEC has no objection to an
independent body, possibly
under the auspices of the Cham-
ber of Commerce, reviewing the
relevant information regarding
the calculation of the fuel sur-
charge as the Corporation has


nothing to hide and is willing
to assist the public as best it
can," Mr Gottlieb said.
BEC's general manager,
Kevin 'Basden, added: "Elec-
tricity generation, and the
mechanics and finances of
obtaining an oil supply in the
international marketplace, are
subjects not easily understood
by persons who are not in the
energy business.
"For this reason, BEC con-

The Tribune apologizes for the incorrect information put in yesterdays paper concerning this ad!


tinues its efforts to explain the
oil situation which makes the
fuel surcharge necessary, and
to explain the fairness of the
calculation of the surcharge."
However, explaining how
BEC's fuel surcharge worked,
Mr Basden said: "BEC wishes
to confirm that the cost of the
fuel is calculated on a five-day
bill of lading (the average of
two days before, the day of, and
two days after) based on the
international postings at that
time.
"Therefore, the price shown
today will not necessarily be
consistent with the price at the
time of the bill of lading, as
there is a delay between the
time the oil is loaded on a ship
and when it is used by BEC.
Corporation policy is 'first in,
first out', which is standard and


necessary business practice. This
means that existing inventory
is used first and the fuel sur-
charge is billed according to
what was paid for the oil that
generated the electricity reflect-
ed in a particular billing."
Mr Gottlieb added: "Like
countries great and small across
the globe, the Bahamas is con-
fronting very challenging eco-
nomic times. Corporations
worldwide, including BEC, are
also feeling the financial blow.
Few, if any, are exempt.
"The Bahamas Electricity
Corporation believes that our
situation is best served by trans-
parency, reliable information
and cooperation from all sec-
tors of the economy to find
viable solutions.
"Unfounded statements can
only delay our joining together


to map out the way ahead. I
reiterate that BEC, its Board
and management are open and
ready to provide information,
and to forge partnerships to
strengthen our service to our
customers and this country's
economic base."
Mr Basden added: "The way
ahead definitely involves a revi-
sion of the way Bahamians
think about and use energy. We
must be conscious of the elec-
trical appliances we buy and the
amount of energy they con-
sume. We must all be concerned
to reduce energy waste.
"The more people we get on
board with electricity conserva-
tion, the more we improve our
chances for lower oil consump-
tion in generating electricity
and, as a result, for lower fuel
surcharges for customers."

Family Island hotel





arrivals at 'standstill'


19 J..-..


* By CARA BRENNEN-
BETHEL
Tribune Business
Reporter
TOURISM arrivals on the
Family Islands have dwindled
almost to a "standstill", during
what is already the slowest part
of the hotel year, leaving resorts
reeling from the pinch of the
current economic climate .
Margot Cleare, owner of the
16-room Orange Creek Inn,
told Tribune Business yester-
day that Cat Island was oper-
ating on two speeds: 'go slow'
and 'full stop'.
I have a 16-room inn and I
do not have a single gues4 right
now. If it was not for the fact
that I also have a small food
store, I do not know how I
would make it. The food store
has to carry the weight and even
with that, I have to be careful
with how much I order and look
at expiration dates," Ms Cleare
said.
Property
She added that even though
the property was not earning
any revenue income, she still
has to ensure it is maintained,
which is costing money.


"1 have still have to keep the
rooms up, and keep one girl on
to help with the hotel. The rest
of the time, she is in the store,
and even with the food store
people are only buying necessi-
ties," Ms Cleare said.
Resorts
She added that two of Cat
Island's resorts, Fernander Bay
and Sammy T's, had closed for
the season.
"I do know that there is noth-
ing happening in Cat Island
right now, and Continental is
not up and running yet," Ms
Cleare said.
She added that if business
was to pick up, it will likely be
after the Thanksgiving holiday
and once things settle down fol-
lowing the US presidential elec-
tion next week.
"I think we have to hope that
the US has a bad winter,
because when the weather is
bad, Americans travel," Ms
Cleare said. She added that the
biggest challenge right now was
the escalating cost of oil, which
has driven tip all prices tremen-
dously.
"I saw the electricity bill for a
pensioner on Cat Island, who
lives in a one-bedroom home -


just a small little house.," she
said. "The bill was $35.70 and
the surcharge was $55.60, mak-
ing his bill $91.30. How is a pen-
sioner receiving $200 a month
supposed to be able to survive,
if his bill is half of his income.
The Government has ,to do
something more than what it is
doing."
According to an employee
at the Lighthouse Yacht Club
and Marina in Andros, while
September, October and early
December were always slow,
things have reached new lows.
"It is always slow this time,
but right now it is beyond slow.
It has never been this bad.
Right now it is almost like
things are at a standstill," she
said.
Employee
The employee added that
very few guests were staying at
the resort, and there were very
few boats in the marina.
She further said that like their
counterparts in Nassau and oth-
ei islands, the resort is likely to
see their days scaled back to
about two days a week.
"I do not know how Christ-
mas will look. but we are hoping
that we will see a strong sea-
son," she said.
F, niil, Island resorts have
partiLcilauy been impacted by
the rise ii operating costs and
the do\ nuii n in arrivals due to
the skyrocketing costs of oil.

'Six or seven' new financial laws to come by year's end


FROM page 1B

against efforts in Europe to revive the
OECD's 'harmful tax practices' initia-
tive and European Union (EU) Sav-
ings Tax Directive.
Mr Laing said yesterday that in
response to the CFATF's report on
the Bahamas' anti-money laundering
and anti-terror financing defences, the
Government had moved parliamen-
tary legislation to ratify the Palermo
Agreement, which is the United
Nations (UN) Convention Against
Transnational Organised Crime.
The Palermo Agreement was a com-
mon "thread" running through the
CFATF's report on the Bahamas and
the recommendations it made, Mr
Laing said.
In addition, recent reforms to the
Central Bank of the Bahamas Act, and
bringing Bahamas-based money trans-
fer businesses under the Central Bank's
regulation, were also responses to the
CFATF's recommendations.
The lack of oversight for money
transfer businesses had been among


the most serious deficiencies the
CFATF, the regional affiliate of the
Paris-based Financial Action Task
Force (FATI which blacklist, ihe
Bahamas in 2, ';0, had identified.
"You will see us moving on some-
additional pieces of legislation with a
view to responding to some of the
things" in the CFATF report, Mr Laing
told Tribune Business. "There are at
least six or seven other pieces of legis-
lation."
The minister said the forthcoming
Bills were "not major", being designed
to clarify areass where the CFATF felt
Bahamian law was not clear. Mr Laing
said in these cases, the regional watch-
dog felt this nation's laws did not do or
provide for certain things, whereas the
Government felt it did.
"There is no harm in ourselves mak-
ing clear that the law does that," Mr
Laing added. When asked when the
planned legislation would be brought
to the House of Assembly and the Sen-
ate, he said: "Soon, hopefully even by
the end of the year. We're really only
waiting to get some additional feed-


back from the industry.
"Some of the amendments we are
seeking to make arc emerging from
the industry also. They have some
improvements they wish to make."
- Among the legislation being w6r!k'd
on is the Securities Industries Act and
its accompanying regulations, which
the Securities Commission wants to go
out for consultation by year-end.
Meanwhile, Mr Laing said it was
"not a surprise" that European nations
were seeking to use the current global
financial crisis as an excuse to renew
their attack on international financial
centres, saying it appeared that the
Bahamas got "roped" into this regard-
less of the reality.
'He was responding to Eric Woerth,
France's minister for budget, public
accounts and the civil service, who sin-
gled the Bahamas out for special atten-
tion at a recent EU meeting in Paris,
naming it alongside the Cayman
Islands, St Kitts and Nevis and Samoa
as state that had not implemented
its so-called transparency and tax infor-
mation exchange commitments given


to the OECD over its 'harmful tax
practices' initiative.
Mr Woerth, though, ignored the fact
that the EU appeared to be abandon-
ing ithi .'level.playing field'concept-that--
was agreed in relation to the OECD
initiative, instead accusing the
Bahamas of being a nation that "offers
zones of opacity that facilitate fraud".
In relation to the French minister's
comments, Mr Laing said: "We cer-
tainly take note of it, because as far as
we're concerned we have done and
have made great progress in respect
of what our regulatory standards used
to be compared to what they are now.
"We did benchmarking, and in some
instances our standards exceed those of
many OECD countries. But we under-
stand the environment we are in.
"Whether the reality exists or not, it
is felt there is a necessity to rope the
Bahamas in because it is one of the
major financial centres in the world."
On the EU's attempts to revive the
stalled OECD initiative, Mr Laing
added: "It is not surprising to us that
this is happening. We fully recognized


that could arise from this situation,
notwithstanding that this crisis had its
genesis in a developed country's finan-
cial system.
- -"We expected iipetts to be given to
an assessment of the global financial
system and a new look taken at off-
shore financial centres. That did not
surprise us at all.
"From our point of view, we have
been, since 200, doing a number of
things to provide for a higher level of
regulation in our jurisdiction.
"We've continued to examine the
CFATF report, and are pursuing those
recommendations we can pursue with-
out compromising our competitive
edge, trying to maintain that very chal-
lenging balancing act.
. "We're not ceasing to look at our-
selves and ensure our standards are in
keeping with international regulatory
standards. Quite frankly, it seems we
are a little bit ahead of the curve in
that regard. Certainly, under our
regime, we'd done some thing neces-
sary to elevate regulatory standards
and put ourselves ahead of the game."


SECTOR, from 1B


cial centres.
And he urged the Bahamas
to abandon its existing business
model, which was focused pri-
marily on 'no income taxes' and
enabling private wealth man-
agement clients to avoid home


country taxes, and instead go
down the double taxation treaty
route.
"I see the gathering of a
storm coming right now," Mr
Moss told Tribune Business.
"The prediction I have is,
because our leaders have done


nothing over the last 10-15 years
with regard to financial services,
we are likely to lose the finan-
cial services industry within the
next five years.
"It is because they [ succes-
sive governments] have done
nothing. They have down on
the beach with their heads in
the sand, not understanding the
seagulls and vultures are cir-
cling financial services."
Mr Obama has made no
secret of his intention to reclaim
tax revenues he alleges are
being lost, due to US compa-
nies and individuals moving
wealth into so-called offshore
centres, having co-sponsored
the Stop Tax Haven Abuse Bill
while in the Senate. That Bill is
still alive on the Senate floor,
and likely to gather pace if
Democrats control both houses
of Congress and the White
House.
Meanwhile, the European
Union (EU) and its member
nations have made no secret of
their plans to exploit the cur-
rent global financial system cri-
sis to revive the OECD's 'harm-
ful tax practices' initiative and
EU Savings Tax Directive,
-launching a full-frontal assault
on international financial cen-
tres.
Mr Moss described this to


Tribune Business as "the per-
fect storm", and added that
both the US and EU were
"going to come" after this
nation "if they believe the
Bahamas has what they say it
has. They're going to come and
get it. Everyone's looking for
taxes to insure against what's
going on in the world".
And he added: "The' Bahamni-
an financial services industry is
finished. It's on life support
now .... We can expect to be like
Jamaica, where crime is out of
control, and like Haiti, which is
a basket case, because the
tourism product is failing.
"Our leaders have done noth-
ing to change the boundaries,
and we will pay dearly for it.,
and pay dearly for it very soon.
"The financial services indus-
try is on life support right now,
because those that tended to
the care of the system did not
pay attention to it. They did not
pay attention to the patient, and
now we're required to put it to
rest, unless we adopt radical
surgery and cut away the notion
of a 'no tax' jurisdiction.
"The antidote right now
would be for the Government
to call in players in the financial
services industry who under-
stand what's going on, because
we cannot continue to be called


a 'tax haven' or even identified
as such."
Mr Moss's views on the
Bahamian financial services
industry's future are likely to
be controversial, and many will
disagree with him.
To secure the sector's future
as the second most-important
contributor to the Bahamas' per
annum gross domestic product
(GDP), Mr Moss recommended
altering its model to one based
upon double taxation treaties.
Not only would this give the
Bahamas respectability in the
eyes of an Obama-led adminis-
tration and the EU, but Mr
Moss said it would remove the
'tax haven' branding stigma and
potentially allow this nation to
attract strong capital inflows
linked to foreign direct invest-
ment.
Double taxation treaties
ensure that assets/funds are
taxed in only one jurisdiction,
rather than two. If the Bahamas
had such a treaty, assets domi-
ciled here would be taxed at a
lower rate in comparison to, say,
the EU, and not taxed when
they were repatriated to
Europe. .
"We have to start negotiat-
ing double taxation treaties with
other nations. We have to be
proactive now and go with this


thing," Mr Moss told Tribune
Business.
"I can predict this. If the Gov-
ernment does what I'm sug-
gesting, instead of seen an exo-
dus from this jurisdiction, they
will see an increase in people
coming here because people
feel better about paying their
taxes."
The key, Mr Moss said, was
for the Bahamas to adopt a rel-
atively low income tax rate so
foreign companies, individuals
and assets here could be taxed
at a lower rate than in their
home countries, then legally
avoid tax when funds were
repatriated.
Most clients, he added, want-
ed to be tax compliant and pay
taxes, as long as the rates were
not "exorbitant".
This approach, Mr Moss sug-
gested, would remove the
Bahamas from the Obama and
EU hit-lists, and "provide the
resources this country desper-
ately needs".
To date, he added that most
investors coming into the
Bahamas had been realtorss",
selling land in exchange for
Bahartmian jobs. The double tax
route, he added, could see real
capital inflows coming into this
nation for investment and infra-
structure purposes.

Tightened credit terms could hurt credit scores


* By CANDICE CHOI
AP Business Writer.
NEW YORK (AP) Don't
throw out that letter from your
credit card company. It may be
notifying you of a reeled in
credit line, interest rate hike or
even an account closure.
In this recessionary climate,
credit card companies across
the board are tightening the
reins on card holders to mini-
mize their exposure to risk.
Such actions could hurt your
credit score and, in turn, your
ability to get an auto loan, mort-
gage or even another credit
card. So heading into the holi-
day shopping season, make sure
you're aware of any changes to
your credit card terms.
In coming weeks, for
instance, American Express is
instituting a broad-based inter-
est rate hike of two to three per-
centage points on card holders.
The hikes are the result of an
expected rise in charge-offs, or
balances written off as not being
paid, the company said earlier
this month.
Across the industry, credit
card charge-off rates rose to 6.8
per cent in August, a 48 per cent
jump from the same period last
year. According to Moody's
Investors Service, it was the
20th consecutive year-over-year
increase.
Moody's expects charge-offs
across the industry to continue
rising into next year, eventually
surpassing peak rates seen dur-


ing past recessions.
Further pressuring credit card
companies are new industry
regulations set to be adopted
by the Federal Reserve later
this year. One proposed regu-'
lation, for instance, would ban
credit card companies from rais-
ing interest rates on existing bal-
ances.
"The new regulations are
going to hamstring (card com-
panies') ability to manage
accounts the way they have in
the past," said John Ulzheimer,
president of consumer educa-
tion for Credit.com.
To protect your credit score
through these times, keep these
points in mind.
WHAT TRIGGERS
A CHANGE
Even if you're not doing any-
thing differently, lenders may
be clamping down on your
account. That's because credit
card companies are re-evaluat-
ing their criteria, said Carol
Kaplan, a spokeswoman for the
American Bankers Association,
an industry group.
In a robust economy, for
instance, a $15,000 balance may
not have triggered any alarms.
Today, it may be reason for a
higher rate or a lower credit
line, Kaplan said.
Other reasons lenders may
tweak terms include late pay-
ments, partial payments,
exceeding credit limits even
if such behavior didn't provoke
changes before.


Not using your card often
enough could also be cause for
a change or even prompt the
,company to close the account.
"The bottom line is, card
issuers are looking for a reason
to say no. They're going on
defense and minimizing their
exposure to risk," said Greg
McBride, senior analyst at
Bankrate.com.
NEW REGULATIONS
COMING
Credit card companies may
also be changing terms to gird
for new regulations set to be
adopted by year's end.
The Federal Reserve is still
ironing out the details, but one'
proposal would ban companies
from raising rates on existing
balances; hikes could only be
applie 1 to future purchases.
"In some cases, we think
lenders are taking the opportu-
nity to raise rates now," said
Ruth Susswein, deputy director
of national priorities for the
advocacy group Consumer
Action.
Another proposed regulation
would prevent companies from
punishing card holders for rea-
sons unrelated to their account.
Right now, companies can raise
rates or lower limits based on
information that shows up on
credit reports, such as taking
out new loans or defaults on
other cards whether or not
such activity had an impact on
your credit score.
Some credit card companies


.have already stopped engaging
in such practices. This year, for
instance, Chase stopped auto-
matically raising customers'
interest rates when their credit
scores declined. The company
says the move wasn't related to
the upcoming regulations.
HOW TO PREVENT A
CHANGE
One way to guard against
toughened terms is to keep
more than one credit card. That
will give you the option to trans-
fer balances or use other cards if
one issuer takes action against
you, said Ulzheimer of Cred-
it.com.Checking your credit
score periodically to make sure
it's clean can also help fend off
unwanted changes. It's also
important to monitor to pre-
vent identity theft.
On Citigroup Inc.'s financial
literacy Web site for consumers
(www.usecreditwisely.com), the
company also suggests immedi-
ately notifying companies when-
ever you move so bills aren't
late. Other measures you can
take are obvious: Pay your bills
on time and whittle down debt
as much as possible.
NEGOTIATING BETTER
TERMS
The first step is to read any
mail from your credit card com-
pany. Notification of new terms
may also be included in your
monthly statement.
If your bank hits you with a
higher interest rate, call and ask

dent of the Bahamas, said that
even with the worldwide eco-
nomic slowdown, there was sig-
nificant sales activity.
Robert Rose, Ocean Place's
executive director of market-
ing, said that of the 79 units,
some 49 have been either sold
or are under contract, proving
that the Bahamas remains a
destination considered as a
haven for safe investment.
Mr Rose explained that the
development was unique in that
each resident has two designat-
ed parking spaces, and direct


access to their homes via ele-
vator without a common lobby.
Through the work of a
Bahamian company, Residen-
tial Automation, residents will
be able to access valet parking,
reserve golf and spa time, and
make reservations for restau-
rants on Paradise Island from
a central system located in their
homes. Each unit has expansive
views overlooking Nassau Har-
bour, the Paradise Island golf
course or the city of Nassau.
Owners can also control their
interior ambiance, lighting,
media and music remotely via
high speed Internet.


The second stage of the pro-
ject expected to begin within 60
days is the 50-slip marina, which
will have 30 to 80-foot boat
slips. It is being designed and
built by Heavy Marine Foun-
dations, owned by Dwight and
Dwayne Pratt.
Other partners in the project
include Brent Neymour, as pro-
ject manager; Ken Meadows,
who owns an air-conditioning
business; Lovell Ferguson, a
business owner who ran crews
for the plumbing of Atlantis;
and Tom Wrinkle, owner of an
elevator company.
A number of Bahamian com-


panies benefited from the pro-
ject, including We Care Presi-
dential Services, Bahamas
Waste, Ultimate Doors and
Cornerstone Renovations, led
by Loretta Moss.

it to reconsider if you think the
change is undeserved. Ask the
customer service representative
if he has the authority to make
changes to your terms. If not,
ask to speak to a supervisor
who does, said the ABA's
Kaplan. "Tell them how long
you've been a customer for and
explain what went wrong. You
can achieve a lot just by calling
and being reasonable," she said.
If you're not satisfied, you
can always get rid of the card.
Banks typically let customers


pay off balances at their old
rates, so long as they shut down
the account.
If your account is being
closed, think carefully before
asking the issuer to re-evaluate
the decision. That technically
counts as an application for new
credit and may end up hurting
your credit score. For those with
great credit and low balances,
remember that credit card com-
panies are fighting to hold onto
you so it may pay to shop
around.

Laing said most work would

regard to developing a Rules of

Given that the Bahamas

where the private sector inter-
acts significantly with the state,
so improvements there are of
great benefit to the society."
That will be music to the ears
of many Bahamas-based busi-
nesses, given that many have
encountered substantial prob-
lems and delays in clearing and
paying for imported goods ship-
ments.
The Customs Department
featured prominently in the
Vexing Business Issues report
submitted to the Government
earlier this year by the Bahamas
Chamber of Commerce, which
said there were too few. Cus-
toms officers to deal with the
volume of business the depart-
ment handled, inevitably lead-
ing to inefficient and delayed
service.
The report also noted the ten-
dency of companies to deal with
'who they know' within Cus-
toms in a bid to speed the
process up, something that the
Chamber report warned could
lead to corruption.
Meanwhile, Mr Laing said
that while an EPA implemen-
tation timetable was already
built into the agreement, the
Ministry of Finance had pre-
pared a draft road map itself
for the Bahamas.
"I think that there will be
some work needed to be done

erty rights provisions of it [the
EPA], the competition policy
provisions of it, but in terms of
weight the two would be equal
and less demanding than the
Customs area," Mr Laing said.

'doubles'




for Cable




during Q3


FROM page 1B

disposable incomes from loss of
tips, plus high energy and fuel
prices, has seen Bahamians con-
sumers cut back on a wide
range of spending, and cable
TV has not been immune.
When asked whether there
had been an increase in the
number of Cable Bahamas'
cable subscribers who had not
been able to pay, or were late in
paying, their bills, Mr Williams
confirmed that cable subscriber
churn had "doubled" in the
2008 third quarter when com-
pared to the first half.
"The churn has to do with
customer disconnections, and
the churn has doubled," Mr
Williams said. "That is a big
indication to us that the eco-
nomic times are affecting our
subscribers and affecting what
they keep in terms of services.
We normally give customers
between 45-60 days [to pay]
before we disconnect, and those
numbers have been increasing
over the last couple of months."
Blaming subscriber churn as
the key reason for the relative-
ly minimal year-on-year growth
in Cable Bahamas' cable TV
revenues, Mr Williams added:
"In some cases people have
dropped premium services alto-
gether, and some people have
disconnected some of what they
had, meaning they subscribe to


fewer packages from us."
Still, Cable Bahamas has
managed, to maintain top-line
growth in its core cable televi-
sion business, with revenues up
2 per cent year-over-year com-
pared to the 2007 third quarter.
Year-to-date, cable TV rev-
enues are 4 per cent ahead of
2007 comparatives for the first
nine months.
The good news for Cable
Bahamas has come from its
Internet and data business seg-
ments, showing the value of
having diversified revenue
streams. For both the first nine
months in 2008 and this year's
third quarter, Internet revenues
were up 11 per cent over 2007.
For the 2008 third quarter,
data revenues were ahead of
prior year comparatives by 22
per cent, Mr Williams added,
compared to 20 per cent growth
for the first three quarters.
"The growth is mostly on the
commercial side of the busi-
ness," Mr Williams said of the
Internet and data businesses.
"Internet is a requirement for
many, many businesses, espe-
cially the financial services
industry, which is a significant
part of our customer base on
the data side."
On the cable TV front, Mr
Williams said the "momentum"
Cable Bahamas built up in the
2007 second half and into the
early part of this year had
helped to carry it through and


minimise the impact from the
early stages of the economic
downturn.
He explained that "a lot of
sales" were achieved during the
2007 second half, meaning that
while the revenues generated
only showed up in one or two
quarters last year, they had
been a factor right through 2008
to-date, helping to boost the
company's top line.
Mr Williams said the 9.3 per
cent operating expenses growth
in the three months to Septem-
ber 30, 2008, from $9.7 million
to $10.062 million year-over-
year, was largely due to a "dou-
bling" in electricity costs plus
fuel cost rises.
"We've also had some
increases in fees for a number of
the channels we carry, and
that's also led to the increase,"
Mr Williams said. "We have
seen a bit of an increase in bad
debt expense over the last cou-
ple of months, and that's direct-
ly related to subscriber churn."
Mr Williams said Cable
Bahamas invested $2.5 million
in capital expenditure during
the 2008 third quarter, the lion's
share going on the expansion
of its Robinson Road facility -
which is now 95 per cent com-
plete and its new Freeport
offices.
For the first nine months in
2008, Cable Bahamas has
invested $18 million in capital
expenditure.

Another rate cut expected from Fed


* By MARTIN
CRUTSINGER
AP Economics Writer
WASHINGTON (AP) -
The worst financial crisis in 70
years has forced the Federal-
Reserve to employ all the
weapons in its arsenal includ-
ing cutting interest rates to near
historic lows to try to keep
the country from plunging into
a deep recession.
Fed policymakers are expect-
ed to slash a key interest rate by
a half-point, pushing the feder-
al funds rate down to one per
cent, as they wrap up a two-day
meeting Wednesday.
That would put the Fed's tar-
get for the interest banks charge
each other on overnight lows
down at level last seen during a
12-month period from June
2003 to June 2004. Before that
period, the funds rate had not-
been that tdWin45 yeais,since
Dwight Eisenhower was presi-
dent.
Economists believe the Fed


is prepared to cut rates that low
because of the rising fears that
the financial turmoil of the past
two months is raising the
specter of a deep and prolonged
recession.
"The Fed is going to send a
very strong signal that they will
do whatever it takes to restore
stability to the economy," pre-
dicted Mark Zandi, chief econ-
omist at Moody's
Economy.com.
The prospect of another siz-
able rate cut, coming just three
weeks a half-point move that
was coordinate with'a number
of countries, sent the stock mar-
ket soaring on Tuesday, pushing
the Dow Jones industrial aver-
age up by 889.35 points, its sec-
ond-biggest point gain in histo-
ry. I
Even if the Fed does fulfill
the desires of investors with its
,action-Wednesday, it is not like-
ly to end the turbulence on Wall
Street. Analysts are cautioning
to be prepared for more stom-
ach-churning days ahead as

PUBLIC NOTICE

The Ministry of Agriculture & Marine
Resources advises the public of the discovery
of food products originating from the Peoples
Republic of China containing milk and milk
by products. Similar food products have been
found to contain contaminants that have
resulted in illness and death of infants in the
Peoples Republic of China.

The public is advised to be vigilant and to
avoid all food products originating from the
Peoples Republic of China containing milk,
powdered milk, or milk byproducts until further
notice.

If members of the public have purchased
processed food products originating from the
Peoples Republic of China labeled as
containing milk, powdered milk or milk
byproducts, these items should be returned to
the place of purchase, or rendered unusable
and discarded, and reported to the Department
of Agriculture for collection and proper
disposal.

investors struggle to deal with a
severe credit crisis and what
could be the, worst recession in
at least two decades.
A half-point rate cut on
Wednesday would push bor-
rowing costs lower for millions
of consumer and business loans
with banks moving quickly to
match the Fed's action by low-
ering their benchmark prime
lending rate from 4.5 per cent,
where it has been for the past
three weeks, down to four per
cent.
The Fed is hoping that the
sharply lower rates will help
boost economic growth going
* forward. The government will
release its first look at econom-
ic activity in the July-Septem-
ber quarter on Thursday and
that is expected to show that
the gross domestic product
shrank at a rate of 0.5 per cent
inthe third quarter.
Many analysts believe the
GDP'- the measure of the val-
ue of all the goods and services
produced in the country is


falling further in the current
quarter and will also fall in the
first three months of next year.
That pattern would meet the
classic definition of a recession
as at least two consecutive quar-
ters of declining GDP. Many
economists think that when the
National Bureau of Economic
Research, the official arbiter of
when recessions begin and end
in this country, makes its deci-
sion, it will date this downturn
to the beginning of 2008, when
the labor market started shed-
ding jobs.
The country has lost jobs
every month this year and the
unemployment rate now stands
at 6.1 per cent. Economists fore-
cast that it could hit eight per
cent by the spring of next year
due to the severity of the shut-
down of bank lending, a credit
crisis triggered by billions of
dollars of losses in mortgage
lending as defaults soared to
record levels.
That has jolted banks, result-
ed in government takeovers of

the nation's two biggest mort-
gage companies and the biggest
shakeup on Wall Street since
the Great Depression. Banks
have become fearful about
making new loans, a develop-
ment that has had ripple effects
on American businesses trying
to get loans for normal opera-
tions, and on American con-
sumers, who are having trouble
getting car loans and home
loans.
"The credit squeeze has
moved from Wall Street to
Main Street and it is seriously
affecting the real economy and
now it has gone global," said
Sung Won Sohn, an economist
at the Smith School of Business
at California State University,
Channel Islands.
Many analysts believe a rate
cut in the United States will be
followed by cuts in other major
economies as central banks
around the world try to inject
confidence into a badly shaken
financial system.
Analysts are split, however,
on whether a Fed rate. move this
week will be followed by anoth-
er rate cut at the central bank's
last meeting of the year on
December 16.
Some analysts think the Fed
could drive the funds rate as
low as 0.5 per cent and might
even go to zero, which the Bank
of Japandid in an' effort to com-
bat a decade-long bout of
malaise in the 1990s caused by a


real estate bust in that country.
Other analysts believe thp
Fed will be content to lower the
funds rate to one per cent and
leave it there, partly because
pushing it any lower would
remove any cushion to cut the
rate further should the economy
fail to respond and the down-
turn worsen.
These analysts believe the
Fed will depend on its other
efforts to battle the credit crisis,
which involve supplying mas-
sive resources to the banking
system.
David Jones, chief economist
at DMJ Advisors, said that Fed
officials will probably decide
that all the global efforts to fight
the credit squeeze, including a
$700 billion rescue fund in this
country, should be given time
to work.
But Jones, who thinks the
economy will remain in a reces-
sion until the middle of next
year, said he believes that the
Fed will signal that it is pre-
pared to leave the funds rate at
one per cent for some time to
come.
When the Fed under former
Chairman Alan Greenspan "cut
the funds rate to one per cent
and left it there for a year, they
kept saying rates would remain
low for a considerable period
of time," Jones said.
"I think this time rates will
stay at one per cent for a longer
period."

AP Economics Writer

WASHINGTON (AP) -
Orders to US factories for big-
ticket manufactured goods post-
ed an unexpectedly strong
showing in Sptember the
Largest gain in three months -
on a surge in demand for air-
planes and autos, government
data showed Wednesday.
The Commerce Department
reported Wednesday that
orders for durable goods rose
by 0.8 per cent, surprising econ-
omists who had expected a
decline. Orders had fallen by
5.5 per cent in August, which
was the biggest setback in near-
ly two years.
The September increase was
the largest gain since a 1.4 per
cent rise in June, but all the
strength came in the trans-
portation sector. Demand for
commercial aircraft, an
extremely volatile category, shot
up by 29.7 per cent and orders
for motor vehicles rose by three
per cent, the biggest gain in
more than a year.
The big increase in orders for
motor vehicles probably reflect-
ed the use of incentive pack-
ages by automakers trying to
spur lagging demand during a
generally dismal sales year.
Orders for motor vehicles and
parts had fallen by a sharp 8.8
per cent in August.
Demand is expected to
remain weak, reflecting the
.bard economic times, rising
unemployment and sagging
consumer confidence.
: Outside of transportation,
orders fell by 1.1 per cent fol-
lowing an even bigger 4.1 per
;cent drop in August. The back-
to-back declines in these areas
indicated the pressures facing
'manufacturing now as the US
economy appears to be falling
into a recession.
The government will release
its first look at overall econom-
ic activity in the July-Septem-
ber period on Thursday. Many
economists believe that report
:will show the gross domestic
,product was falling at an annu-


al rate of 0.5 per cent in the
third quarter.
Analysts expect the GDP to
decline in the current quarter
and the first three months of
next year, too.
The classic definition of a
recession is two consecutive
decreases in GDP. Economists
believe that the worst financial
crisis in seven decades, which
erupted with force in Septem-
ber, has pushed the country into
what could be a much more
pronounced downturn than the
past two relatively mild reces-
sions in 2001 and 1990-91.
Analysts said the current
downturn is being led by con-
sumers who are cutting spend-
ing because of rising unem-
ployment and difficulty in get-
ting credit.
"The industrial sector is
merely reacting to the down-
turn. It is not leading the reces-
sion," said Daniel Meckstroth,
chief economist at the Manu-
facturers Alliance/MAPI.
Michael Gregory, an econo-
mist at BMO Capital Markets,
predicted further declines in
durable goods orders in the
mouths ahead.
"The deepening US reces-
sion, a still-encumbered credit
creation process and slowing
export sales owing to the global
economic downturn point to a
much weaker trend for duable
goods orders," he said.
The 0.8 per cent overall
increase last month left orders
for durable goods, products
expected to last at least three
years, totaling $207.8 billion.
Outside of transportation, the
weakness reflected declines in
such areas as primary metals
such as steel, where demand fell
by 4.5 per cent, and computers,
where demand was down 1.4
per cent.
Orders for non-defense capi-
tal goods, considered a good
barometer of business invest-
ment plans, fell by 1.4 per cent
in September, the second
monthly decline. Business are
cutting back on their plans to
expand and modernize in the
face of spreading economic
weakness.

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
1- level of the Conceptis Kakuro increases from Monday to Sunday.

The bidding:

Pass 7 74 Pass
Pass 7 NT(!) Dble-
Opening lead ace of spades.
On the International Match
Point scale used to score most team
contests, the largest swing a team can
earn is 24 IMPs -- the equivalent of
4.000 or more points. Needless to
say, such a swing is extremely rare.
This is not surprising, since for such
a disparity to occur, one or both pairs
on a team must have a calamitous
result of gargantuan proportions.
Certainly, a swing of this magni-
tude would not be expected to hap-
pen in an event of any major impor-
tance. And that is what makes
today's deal so remarkable, since it


occurred in the 1997 Grand National
Teams playoffs.
After East opened with a weak
two-bid and South doubled, West,
Chris Compton, muddied the waters
by leaping to four spades. North,
convinced there was a slam in the
offing, cuebid five spades to ask his
partner to choose a suit.
South judged that he had a much
better hand than he might have had,
so he leaped to seven diamonds.
Compton then sacrificed at seven
spades. When North passed invit-
ing his partner to bid on South
could not conceive that his partner
also held a void in spades, so he cred-
ited North with the spade ace and bid
seven notrump!
Compton gleefully doubled and
led the spade ace, and when the
smoke cleared, South was down
seven 2,000 points!
At the second table, the bidding
went:
East South West North
34 5* 64 7*
Dble (!) Pass Pass Pass
East's double was apparently
intended to show that he did not have
first-round diamond control, and
West left the double in. Seven dia-
monds doubled was worth 2,330
points, which, together with the
2,000 gained at the other table, came
to a tidy 4,330 points more than
enough to cam the top score on the
IMP scale.
