Appoints senator Three cars involved in collision


over objections

of Opposition .


leader ... .


* By BRENT DEAN
Tribune Staff Reporter
MICHAEL Halkitis and
Tanya Wright have been
appoink'd to two of the three
remaining Senate seats.
Prime Minister Hubert Ingra-
ham overruled Opposition
Leader Perry Christie in the
naming of Mrs Wright, possi-
bly setting the stage for a con-
stitutional showdown between
the two political leaders, only
weeks after the election.
The announcement came late
yesterday evening in a press
release from the Cabinet Office.
"The appointments have
been made in accordance with
article 39(4) of the constitution
which provided for three Sena-
tors to be appointed by the
Governor-general acting in
accordance with the advice of
the prime minister after consul-
tation with the leader of the
opposition," the statement said.
"As there was no agreement
on the appointment of Mrs
Wright by the Leader of the
Opposition when consulted, the
Governor-general was moved
to act in accordance with Article
79(5) of the constitution," the
statement continued.
Article 79(5) sets out what is
to occur in matterswhen the
prime minister is required to
consult the leader of the oppo-
sition. And it also-states what is
to occur when there is dis-


agreement between the two. ,
Specifically, sections (c) and
(d) of this article give authority
to the prime minister to over-
ride the leader of the opposi-
tion when there is disagree-
ment.
"c: If the leader of the oppo-
sition does not concur in the
recommendation, the Gover-
nor-general shall so inform the
prime minister and refer the
recommendation back to him.
"d: The prime minister shall
then advise the Governor-gen-
eral and the Governor-general
shall act in accordance with that
advice," the constitution states.
Though this article gives the
Prime Minister the authority to
make the appointment, even if
the leader of the opposition dis-
agrees, article 40 requires the
make-up of the Senate to reflect
that of the House.
Therefore, if the prime min-
ister's authorised appointment
is not a PLP, then he is in com-
pliance with article 79(5) of the
constitution, but might not be
with article 40, due to the close
make-up of the House.
.In the press statement, the
prime minister said that he was
satisfied that both appointees
were individuals of proven com-
petence and experience, and he
anticipates that both will make
significant contributions to the
Senate.

Foulkes attempts

to settle Morton
Salt disagreement

N By ALISON LOWE
Tribune Staff Reporter
LABOUR and Maritime Affairs Minister
Dion Foulkes met for the first time yesterday
with all parties involved in the Morton Salt
industrial dispute in an attempt to resolve the
long standing disagreement.
Mr Foulkes, along with the ministry's per-
manent secretary, senior officials from the
Labour Departnlent, Obie Ferguson, legal
counsel for the Bahamas Industrial Manu-
facturers and! Allied Work Union
(BIMAWU), and company representatives
met to discuss the contentious matter in a
7.30am meeting.
While, according to Mr Ferguson, no agree-
ment was reached, he was positive about the
direction the meeting took, and said he feels
that the minister's involvement will speed up
the process.
"Hopefully with the atmosphere being what
it is, at the end of the day the parties will be able
to use him (the minister) to come to an amica-
ble agreement," said Ferguson.

* AROUND noon on Friday the driver of a Hyundai Accent was driving east on Independence
Highway. He came up behind a cement truck, and not being able to brake fast enough, swerved to
avoid hitting the truck. The Hyundai then hit a Nissan Sentra, which jumped the median into
oncoming traffic and hit a Dodge truck. Two of the drivers were unhurt, but the driver of the
Hyundai Accent left the scene in an ambulance wearing a neck brace. The accident caused major
traffic back-ups for more than an hour.

COB policy for

non-Bahamians

to be reviewed
By ALISON LOWE
Tribune Staff Reporter
THE policy that a Bahamian-born youth
who does not yet have citizenship must pay
higher tuition fees at the College of the
Bahamas is to be reviewed.
The announcement was made yesterday by
Education Minister Carl Bethel yesterday.
The tuition differential was brought to light
when a young man, born in the Bahamas to
Haitian parents, condemned the policy. He
pointed out that if the Bahamas is to progress
as a nation "barriers" such as the charging of
higher fees to those born in the Bahamas to
non-Bahamian parents must be abolished.
Lucien Emmanuel has called on govern-
ment to end the policy. He says it is discrimi-
natory and detrimental to the advancement
of Bahamian society.
Minister Bethel said that government, in
conjunction with officials from the College of
the Bahamas, will review the policy.
"The government, together with officials from
the College of the Bahamas is reviewing the

M By DENISE MAYCOCK
Tribune Freeport Reporter
FREEPORT Save the
Bahamas, a non-governmental
organisation, has criticised the
FNM for not making environ-
mental issues a priority in their
recent cabinet and ministerial
appointments.
Freeport attorney Fred
Smith, a member of Save the
Bahamas, was shocked that
there was no mention of the
environment in any of the cab-
inet and ministerial portfolios,
or even an appointment of a
minister of state dedicated to
the environment.
"We are extremely concerned
that the FNM administration
has not made environmental
issues one of their priority mat-
ters," he told The Tribune.
"It was part of their mani-
festo. In fact, they dedicated a
couple of pages in their mani-
festo and on page 27 the FNM
speaks to the environment and
sustainable development and


we would have thought that
there would have at least been a
minister of state dedicated to
environmental matters," he
said.
Mr Smith stressed that there
is an urgent need for the imme-
diate passing of an Environ-
mental Protection Act in the
Bahamas.

Heritage

He said that as the govern-
ment moves to create new jobs,
promote business and develop
the economy in the Bahamas,
it must be vigilant in terms of
protecting the environment, the
country's heritage and the
uniqueness of Family Island cul-
tures.
"We are startled that the
FNM has not made the envi-
ronment a priority. It is not
enough to just speak about pro-
tecting the environment, like
the PLP did it is important to
actually come through with
your promises.
"The FNM government was
voted in on a ticket of trust, and
the Bahamian people expect the
FNM to live up to their word.
We do not expect the FNM to
be just like the PLP a bag of


wind," he said.
Mr Smith said Save the
Bahamas is an organisation
committed to protect the
environment, with promoting
the passing of an environment
protection act a priority.
The organisation has a num-
ber of affiliates in San Salvador,
Bimini, Grand Bahama, New
Providence and Guana Cay.
"All of these satellite local
communities have banded
together to 'save the Bahamas'
and have a say in the environ-
ment, and the protection of our
culture, heritage and environ-
ment, while the Bahamas is con-
tinuing to be developed," he
explained.
Mr Smith noted that local
communities have a right to
know what environmental
permits are issued, or not
issued, pertaining to develop-
ments in their areas, as well
as details of heads of agree-
ment.
"The FNM was the govern-
ment that brought in local gov-
ernment in 1996, and local com-
munities in the Family Islands
do not want to be dictated to,
and have the heavy hand of dis-
tant central government tell
them what to do in their com-
munities.

Tribune Freeport Reporter
FREEPORT Lawyer Fred
Smith is calling on the FNM
government to make public all
permits, approvals, and conces-
sions relating to the Baker's Bay
development at Guana Cay.
Mr Smith is the lawyer of
Save Guana Cay Association,
which is opposed to the multi-
million dollar development on
that island.
He is concerned about the
impact to the environment as a
result of the construction ef the
mega resort project that is being
undertaken by the developers,
and is pushing for the imple-
mentation of an environmental
protection act,
Mr Smith said that the
promise to preserve Crown
Land for Bahamians, and make
the details of developments
public, were touted by the FNM
during the election.
"I have written to the prime
minister (Hubert Ingraham),
Zhivargo Laing (Minister of
State in the Ministry of
Finance), Neko Grant (Minister
of Tourism), Sidney Collie
(Minister of Lands and Local
Government), and Claire Hep-
burn (Attorney General and
Minister of Legal Affairs),
putting them on notice, and ask-
ing them to provide the people
of Guana Cay copies of all the
permits, approvals and conces-
sions that may have been given
secretly by the PLP govern-
ment," he said.
Mr Smith stressed that he is
not against development, but
rather an advocate of sustain-
able development in the Family

Islands.
As a member of Save the
Bahamas, Mr Smith said that
they are committed to protect-
ing the environment, and as a
priority, promoting the passing
of an environment protection
act.
"We (The Bahamas) have
become the most attractive off-
shore Caribbean nation to
develop in right now, and there
were recent reports on it.
"One of the things that have
attracted millions of boaters and
tourists is our beautiful pristine
sun, sand and sea our envi-
ronment our gorgeous beaches
and in the hunt for the almighty
dollar we cannot sell the
Bahamas short," he said.
Mr Smith expressed concerns
about the dangers of global
warming, and the death of thou-
sands of square miles of coral
reefs all over the Caribbean. He
was also concerned about the
oil spill in Nassau, and dredging
of marsh lands and mangrove
for real estate development.
"This is not something that will
take time. While they were pow-
er, they have already drafted an
environmental protection act;
they have developed regulations
under it, developed an environ-
mental department the ministry
of environment, and the BEST
commission has been function-
ing almost as an environmental
department for 15 years now.
"So, all the pieces are in place
for immediate action," he said.
The Save the Guana Cay
Reef Association has been
fighting against the $500-mil-
lion development for over two
years now.
The Association believes that
the development which is
expected to include an 18-hole
golf course, 180-slip marina, 75-
room luxury hotel, and 350 res-
idential lots will cause
irreparable damage to the small
island.
The SGCRA is currently
awaiting the ruling of the Court
of Appeal on the request to
have an injunction granted to
halt work on the Baker's Bay
project.

Police hold
two men
after finding
shotgun
TWO men were taken into
custody early yesterday after
police found an unlicensed
shotgun at their home.
Police said officers from
the Elizabeth Estates police
station executed a search
warrant at a home in Key
West Street around 2am yes-
terday.
Police reportedly found an
unlicensed shotgun in the
bathroom ceiling. Two men,
aged 21 and 23, were arrested.

Castro makes
personal
statement to
Cuban people

* HAVANA
HE'S off IVs, maintaining
a steady weight and getting
better, but Fidel Castro
grumbles about having to cut
his hair and trim his beard
for official photos, according
to Associated Press.
The 80-year-old has not
been seen in public for near-
ly 10 months, but in a signed
essay published by state
media Thursday, he finally
got personal, telling Cuba
and the world about how he's
feeling and revealing just how
sick he was undergoing not
one, but several emergency
surgeries, the first of which
did not go well.
Castro gave no indication
how long it will take him to
get back to full health or
whether he will resume the
presidential duties he handed
to his 75-year-old brother
Raul on July 31.
"For now, I'm doing what
I'm supposed to be doing,
reflecting and writing about
questions that I judge of cer-
tain importance and tran-
scendence," Castro wrote in a
statement carried on the
front pages of Cuba's official
newspapers and read on state
radio and television. "I have
a lot more material to go."


PLP attacked for




'misinformation'


THE PLP came under fire
last night for allegedly promot-
ing the belief that the party won
more votes than the FNM dur-
ing the May 2 general election.
The attack came on the eve
of a "thank you" rally this
weekend, when the PLP is
expected to dispense what one
source described as "inaccurate
information" about the votes
tally.
"They insist on saying they
won the popular vote when, in
fact, they didn't," said a political
source. "They are saying there
are more of them than there are
FNMs and that simply isn't
true."
The official count, according
to the source, was 68,624 for the
FNM against 64,648 for the
PLP, with the now governing
party easily ahead in both New
Providence and the Family
Islands. -
"In no category did the PLP
pull more votes than the FNM,"
the source added, "How can

they promote this kind of infor-
mation knowing how feelings
are running in the country?
There must be a national
response to it because of the
volatility being shown in some
quarters."
Former Prime Minister Perry
Christie was also strongly criti-
cised for allowing misinforma-
tion to flourish after the election.
"At no time did the votes or
seat count change during that
post-election period and Mr


Christie was aware of it at all
material times.
"Secondly, the display of par-
tisanship at the opening of par-
liament was uncalled for and
unprecedented in Bahamian
history."
Mr Christie, the source said,
allowed the situation to fester.
"The lack of leadership pro-
vides more evidence every day
of why he was rejected in the
election," it was claimed.
Other political sources have
attacked the former govern-
ment's inability to live with their
defeat.
Mr Christie's stated intention
to challenge certain.results
through the courts will achieve
nothing, said one analyst.
"They are shell-shocked,"
said a businessman, "Yet they
did nothing to justify a second
term. They were out of their
depth. They didn't know what
they were doing. It was hopeless
trying to do business with
them."

-AGE 4. SATURDAY, MAY 26, 2007


3 *k LETE S T HEEITOR


IN THIS tradition-bound nation of Alge-
ria scarred by a brutal Islamist-led civil war
that killed more than 100,000, a quiet revo-
lution is under way: women are emerging as
an economic and political force unheard of in
the rest of the Arab world.
Women make up 70 per cent of Algeria's
lawyers and 60 per cent of its judges. Women
dominate medicine. Increasingly, women con-
tribute more to household income than men.
Sixty per cent of university students are
women, university researchers say.
In a region where women have a decided-
ly low public profile, Algerian women are
visible everywhere. They are starting to drive
buses and taxicabs. They pump gas and wait
on tables.
Although men still hold all of the formal
levers of power and women still make up
only 20 per cent of the work force, that is
more than twice their share a generation ago,
and they seem to be taking over the machin-
ery of state as well.
"If such a trend continues," said Daho
Djerbal, editor and publisher of Naqd, a mag-
azine of social criticism and analysis, "we will
see a new phenomenon where our public
administration will also be controlled by
women."
The change seems to have sneaked up on
Algerians who for years have focused more
on the struggle between a governing party
trying to stay in power and Islamists trying to
take that power.
Those who study the region say they are
taken aback by the data but suggest that an
explanation may lie in the educational system
and the labour market.
University studies are no longer viewed as
a credible route toward a career or econom-
ic well-being, so men may well opt out and try
to find work or to simply leave the country,
suggested Hugh Roberts, a historian and the
North Africa project director of the Inter-
national Crisis Group.
But for women, he added, university stud-
ies get them out of the house and allow them
to position themselves better in society. "The
dividend may be social rather than in terms of
career," he said.
This generation of Algerian women has
navigated a path between the secular state
and the pull of extremist Islam, the two poles
of the national crisis of recent years.
The women are more religious than in pre-
vious generations, and more modern, Alger-
ian sociologists said. Women cover their
heads and drape their bodies with tradition-
al Islamic coverings. They pray. They go to
the mosque and they work, often alongside
men, once considered taboo.
Sociologists and many working women say
that by adopting religion and wearing the
Islamic head covering called the hijab, women
here have in effect freed themselves from
moral judgments and restrictions imposed

by men. Uncovered women are rarely seen
on the street late at night, but covered women
can be seen strolling the city after attending
the evening prayer at a mosque.
"They never criticise me, especially when
they see I am wearing the hijab," said Denni
Fatiha, 44, the first woman to drive a large
city bus through the narrow, winding roads of
Algiers.
The impact has been far-reaching and pro-
found.
In some neighborhoods, for example,
birth rates appear to have fallen and class
sizes in elementary schools have dropped by
nearly half. It appears that women are delay-
ing marriage to complete their studies, though
delayed marriage is also a function of high
unemployment. In the past, women typically
married at 17 or 18 but they now marry on
average at 29, sociologists said.
And when they marry, it is often to men
who are far less educated, creating an awk-
ward social reality for many women.
Khalida Rahman is a lawyer. She is 33 and
has been married to a night watchman for
five months. Her husband was a friend of
her brothers who showed up one day and
proposed. She immediately said yes.
She describes her life this way: "Whenever
I leave him, it is just as if I am a man. But
when I get home I become a woman."
Algeria's young men reject school and try
. earn money as traders in the informal sec-
tor, selling goods on the street, or they focus
on leaving the country or just hanging out.
There is a whole class of young men referred
to as hittistes, the word is a combination of
French and Arabic for people who hold up
walls.
Increasingly, Algerians have lost faith in
their government, which draws its legitimacy
from a revolution now more than five decades
old, many political and social analysts said. In
recent parliamentary elections, turnout was
low and there were 970,000 protest votes -
cast by people who intentionally destroyed
their ballots nearly as many as the 1.3 mil-
lion votes cast in support of the governing
party.
There are regular protests, and riots, all
over the country, with people complaining
about corruption, lack of services and eco-
nomic disparities. There are violent attacks,
too: bombings aimed at the police, officials
and foreigners. A triple suicide bombing on
April 11 against the prime minister's office
and the police left more than 30 people dead.
In that context, women may have emerged
as Algeria's most potent force for social
c' inge, with their presence in the bureau-
c acy and on the street having a potentially
moderating and modernizing influence on
society.

EDITOR, The Tribune
IN 1962 when women were
first given the right to vote, the
Progressive Liberal Party was
expected to return as the winner
in that election, but again the
United Bahamian Party would
returned as the winner.
It was suggested that the
UBP had an advantage because
of the property vote, and the
way the boundary was cut; but it
was the voters themselves who
had the power as was demon-
strated by the people of Andros
and certain parts of New Prov-
idence.
In 1967 certain individuals
who were afraid to run for
office in fear of losing their
good job, were elevated to lofty
positions after the victory.
That election was a cliff hang-
er. Victory was brought about I
believe, by divine intervention.
The election of 1968 after the
death of Uriah McPhee was a
decisive victory for the Pro-
gressive Liberal Party, but soon
there would be a problem, it
became apparent that power
sharing was not an option, as
far as the leader was concerned.
When it became apparent


that someone else on the ship of
state had ambitions to challenge
the leader, a warning was sent
out loud and clear that the cap-
tain's quarters was off limits:
but those with ambitions, can
fish, cut bait, or get the hell out
of the boat.
The insult was so obscene, it
forced an able navigator to
abandon ship with seven able
crew members, and become
captain of a ship of his own.
With Mr Whitfield gone,
there was no one with enough
nerve to challenge the maxi-
mum leader so he would go
unchallenged for 34 years until
he was defeated in 1992 by his
most valued prodigy; even then,
they were afraid to challenge;
it was not until after the second
defeat in 1997, that the leader-
ship changed hands for the first
time after a bitter battle that
caused a split in the party.
It is amazing how the present
leader of the opposition in being
referred to as maximum leader


when after two terms he
stepped aside and gave others
the opportunity to lead. If they
have any sense of history, they
would remember that the for-
mer leader of the Progressive
Liberal Party took over that
position from its founding
father Henry Milton Taylor in
1963 and guarded that position
jealously for their four years,
because since Mr Whitfield
back in 1970, no one ever dared
challenge the leader because
they knew that would be the
end of their career.
Mr Ingraham voluntarily
stepped aside and gave others a
chance to offer for leader
through the ballot box, after the
devastating defeat in 2002, he
was invited back to lead, ancy
that was achieved through the
ballot.
The present chairman of the
Progressive Liberal Party needs
to take a course in Bahamian
history, or consult some of the
older persons before he speaks
on certain matters.

Mrs Christie and her ivory tower


EDITOR, The Tribune
IT NEVER ceases to amaze
me at how selfish and clueless
people can sometimes be. I read
your exclusive article on May
16th in which Mrs Christie goes
on to ask how can shooting hap-
pen in our beautiful country in
2007. This entire article reeked
of someone who has spent the
past five years living in an
"Ivory Tower".
What happened Mrs,
Christie, did you not realise that
crime has been on the rise for
the past five years? Have you
not read the newspapers where
people have actually been mur-
dered? I love the fact that only
when it hits home does safety
become a priority, and an
immediate cry for extra police
protection... What about hav-
ing protection for an entire
country?
Under the watch of her hus-
band the former Prime Minister
Perry Christie crime escalated
in our country to levels that
have been more than shocking.


Under the watch of her hus-
band we have had some 31 mur-
ders for the year, and please tell
me how many of those have
been a priority to Mr and Mrs
Christie to solve, what about
those families? Are we to now
look forward to Mrs Christie
actually devoting some time,
energy and effort into raising
public awareness against crime
in her beautiful Bahamas?
There is no mystery why her
husband lost the election... just
as Mrs Christie was an ostrich
for the past five years with her
head buried in the ground when
it came to any issues that were
not superficial or glamorous...
She and her husband now have
another five years to be on the
other side of the fence to feel
how thousands of ordinary tax
paying Bahamian citizens feel
when they experience far more
than a bullet in plaster.
Perhaps Mrs Christie also has
selective memory as the same
shooting incident happened in
2002, shortly after her husband
was made Prime Minister. Five


years later we still have no
resolve, so please tell me why
now there is a huge urgency?
Something is not adding up,
does loss of power automatical-
ly equate to fear?
Bashing the current adminis-
tration does not solve any prob-
lems or trying to put blame
where it cannot go. We are all%.-
Bahamians living here on an :'
island, and we all experience
unpleasant things at some point,
and as Mrs Christie was once
quoted as saying...... "you have
to suck it up and move on!"
As for her feeling neither that
she nor her husband have any
enemies what bliss.... A man
who Promised the world to sev-
eral hundred thousand of
Bahamians and has yet to deliv-
er on those promises... and she
says she can't figure out where
it may have come
from?...Hmmm...let's see
where do we start to look?

Police




regi


By Bahamas Information
Services
BAHAMIAN Police Com-
missioner Paul Farquharson
urged officials of regional and
international law enforcement
and private security agencies to
aim for greater co-operation
and collaboration to meet the
"realities and challenges" fac-
ing their countries.
Mr Farquharson said such
collaboration and co-operation
would play a lead role in the
effort to provide an efficient
and effective service "to our
various constituents".
He was addressing the 22nd
annual general meeting and
conference of the Association
of Caribbean Commissioners of
Police (ACCP), which opened
on Wednesday at the Wynd-
ham Nassau Resort.
Commissioner Farquharson
said the world had become a
global village and that criminals
had embarked on a unification
scheme which allowed for the
swift movement of notorious
activities and their associated
proceeds.
"We must strive to reach
beyond the boundaries of our
sovereign nations and our indi-
vidual organizations to form
alliances against the criminal
networks that plague our soci-



Busines



Island j

A SEVEN-MEMBER busi-
ness development delegation
from Rhode Island visited Nas-
sau under the auspices of the
Rhode Island National Guard
State Partnership Programme
with the Bahamas.
The United States Embassy
. .. teamed up with the Rhode
.Island Economic Development
Corporation, The Bahamas
Chamber of Commerce and thd
Bahamas Development Bank
to bring the Rhode Island dele-
gation together with members
of the Bahamian business com-
munity and government offi-
cials.
Delegation members and
their local counterparts dis-
cussed potential business oppor-
tunities and ways to promote
and develop enduring business
relationships between The
Bahamas and Rhode Island.
The visit marked the second by
a Rhode Island delegation this
year.
The Rhode Island National
Guard State Partnership with
the Bahamas was launched in
December, 2005, and has gen-
erated a series of co-operative
initiatives ranging from disas-
ter preparedness to business co-
operation and university part-

eties," he said.
"It has also been our experi-
ence that the private security
sector has continued to play a
vital role in supporting the
activities and operations of the
law enforcement community.
They must therefore become
more integrated as an equal
partner in the law enforcement
and security community," he


added.
Mr Farquharson, who serves
as president of the ACCP, said
he had "no doubt" that the
acquaintances formed during
the conference would develop
into lasting relationships which
would serve the best interests
of law enforcement and securi-
ty communities within the
region.
He referred to an exchange
agreement between the Royal
Bahamas Police Force and the
United States Virgin Islands
Police Department in which two
officers from the RBPF were
sent to the USVI and two offi-
cers from the USVI visited The
Bahamas, as an ideal model for
countries within the ACCP to
emulate.
The agreement between Mr
Farquharson and then Com-
missioner Elton Lewis came
about as a result of a decision
made by the ACCP to promote
exchange programmes within
the region.
"That experience was most
rewarding, not only for the offi-
cers themselves, but the two
countries that participated," Mr
Farquharson said. "We want to
encourage that kind of
exchange programme."
He said commissioners of the
ACCP had "embraced the chal-
lenges" of policing this global


village and that, as a result, the
2007 conference had tran-
scended all previous bound-
aries.
He said the ACCP had part-
nered with international polic-
ing organizations to "better pre-
pare us for policing today."
Commissioner Farquharson
said the key objectives of the
meeting and conference were
to engage law enforcement and
private security executives in
discussions on a probing, func-
tional co-operation and collab-
oration initiative; to create
strategic partnerships between
and among law enforcement
and security agencies for more
effective performance and to
develop strategies for the
enhancement of co-operation
and collaboration among
national, regional and interna-
tional law enforcement and
security agencies.
He said the meeting and con-
ference would also seek to
emphasise the importance of
the responsibility of law
enforcement officials and secu-
rity professionals for the gen-
eral well-being and develop-
ment of "our individual soci-
eties."
Nineteen commissioners from
throughout the region are in
New Providence for the confer-
ence.


s delegation from Rhode



pays visit to the Bahamas


nerships.
State partnership co-opera-
tion in 2006 provided training
for Bahamian prison guards,
police investigators, and fire-
fighters and co-operation in dis-
aster preparedness and emer-
gency management.
And in February, 2007. The
College of The Bahamas cofii
cluded a memorandum- of
understanding with the Univer-
sity of Rhode Island that has
led to student and faculty
exchanges.
This year's July 4 celebration
of American independence at
Liberty Overlook will feature
fine Rhode Island foods and
wines provided by some of the
companies that have participat-
ed in the State partnership pro-
gramme.
The Rhode Island business
delegation consisted of repre-
sentatives from two engineer-
ing and architectural firms, two
food and wine companies, a
major Rhode Island university
and a business reporter.
Natalie Meyers, a reporter
from Providence Business
News, accompanied the group
to report on their meetings to
the broader Rhode Island busi-
ness community. She also met


with local media representa-
tives.
Rhode Island and The
Bahamas share commonalities -
financial services, maritime
trade, a well-established tourism
industry, and distinctive cultur-
al heritage that foster a natur-
al collaborative relationship.
The Rhode Island delegation


















lam


came away from the visit with a
belief that the Bahamas offers
tremendous potential for trade,
investment, and business col-
laboration. They were pleased
by the warm welcome of the
Bahamas business sector and
the potential opportunities to
establish co-operative business
relationships.

Carl Bethel gets



to grips with new



ministry position
J p 1 AM'


MAY has been busy for Min-
-ister of Education, Youth,
Sports and Culture Carl Bethel.
Having won his seat in the
"House of Assembly for
Seabreeze in the general elec-
tion, Mr Bethel hit the ground
running, familiarising himself
with staff and all other stake-
holders in the ministry.
On Friday, May 11, he met
all staff at the Ministry of Edu-
cation's headquarters on
Thompson Boulevard, high-
lighting his willingness to work
-with all members of staff, and
'his willingness to consult with
and listen to all educational
stakeholders.
A few days later, Mr Bethel
announced the new theme of
the Ministry of Education,
Youth, Sports and Culture,
-"Achieving Your Dreams
-,through Education".
He said changes in education
will be achieved through "incre-
mental steps and not a quan-
tum leap."
"The way forward in educa-
tion must be 'Education for All'
and a commitment to the intel-
lectual, social, physical and
moral development of students
and a fostering a love for learn-


ing", he added.
Mr Bethel spoke about the
role that education must play
as the means by which young
people achieve their dreams.
He said that self-worth, self-
respect, respect for authority
and character are the desired
outcomes of a comprehensive
education and said education
must also transmit the culture of
The Bahamas.
Culture, he said, was not
confined to Junkanoo and
defined the way we, as Bahami-
ans, live and students should
be taught to appreciate the
opportunities for employment
and entrepreneurship that cul-
ture will offer.
During the press conference,
Mr Bethel also introduced Min-
ister of State for Youth and
Sports Byran Woodside and
Minister of State for Culture
Charles Maynard.
He said both ministers of
state will have full control of
the development of policies for
their respective portfolios. He
also explained that, while his
primary focus will be on edu-
cation, he would support the
Ministers of State in execution
of their duties.

Mr Bethel also announced
plans to repair schools in prepa-
ration for the new school term
beginning in September.
Mr Bethel has continued to
hold meetings with the Primary
Principals Association, officials
from The College of The
Bahamas and The Bahamas
Union of Teachers, Adminis-
trators and staff of the Ministry
of Education, Youth, Sports
and Culture in Freeport, Grand
Bahama, and is plans to meet
with parents, teachers and
stakeholders in education.


Expectations run high


for Andros Crab Fest


MINISTRY of Tourism offi-
pials expect this year's annual
Andros Crab Fest to be an
event to remember.
The official opening in Cen-
tral Andros will take place on
Friday, June 8, at 8pm.
The new Minister of Tourism
t and Aviation, Neko Grant will
perform the honours. Crab Fest
will run from June 7 to 9.
Crab Fest is a cultural and
heritagee festival established in
;<997 in Fresh Creek, Central
.,%ndros as a collaborative
,-ffort between the Andros
.'Tourist Office, the Central
'Andros Local Government


Authority and community vol-
unteers.
"Crab Fest has evolved from
very humble beginnings into a
mammoth tourist attraction and
signature event, attracting more
than 10,000 domestic and inter-
national visitors annually to
Andros Island," said the Min-
istry of Tourism in a statement
yesterday.
The event is hosted in
Queen's Park, Fresh Creek the
first and second week of June.
"This year there will be over
40 stalls serving an almost end-
less array of mouth-watering
crab dishes with endless enter-


tainment and social interaction.
There will be entertainment by
Avvy, Royal Bahamas Defence
Force Band, Rush with Pratt
Brothers, Ancient Man, Soul-
ful Groovers, KB, Eugene
Davis and Elon Moxey just to
name a few," the statement
said.
Andros is noted for the
colourful batik fabric, Androsia,
and two legendary creatures -
the Lusca, a monstrous octo-
pus-like creature found in blue
holes, and the three-toed, red-
eyed, bird-bodied Chickcharnie,
which nests where two pine
trees meet.

the Mexican city on the Mayan
Gold Coast seems to offer facili-
ties that the Bahamas cannot
match at this time. The destina-
tion, therefore, is gaining quickly
on the Bahamas' tourist industry.
Both the lack of hotel rooms,
particularly in Grand Bahama,
and the conditions at Lynden Pin-
dling International Airport have
been cited as the greatest weak-
nesses in the Bahamas' tourist
industry.
Cancun's increasing success as
a preferred tourism destination
for US travellers comes as con-
cerns are raised about the
Bahamas losing its competitive
edge.
The Central Bank reported last
month that hotel revenues fell by
1.6 per cent to $68.2 million in

the 2006 fourth quarter, com-
pared to a 17.4 per cent increase
in 2005.
Total visitor arrivals to the
Bahamas for the first 10 months
of 2006 fell by 4.7 per cent com-
pared to 2005.
Last week, leading online trav-
el companies Orbitz and Trave-
locity released their reviews on
future air bookings and have
named Cancun as the top inter-
national destination for summer
travel with the Bahamas trailing
some distance behind.
In its second annual "Insider

that they haven't reached the age

This means not only as it
relates to children born to
Haitians, or other foreign parents
in the Bahamas, but also to chil-
dren born to Bahamian women
whose husbands are foreign.
Under Bahamian law, any child

Efforts towards the creation of
this type of national institute
began last year with the creation
of a national research policy fel-

groups, can work with faculty
members on investigations into
any number of topics of interest.

born to parents who are both

to a Bahamian mother and a non-
Bahamian father automatically

being held back from going on to

this September.
"We need to encourage peo-
ple who want to participate to

Some of the participants in the
conference include, representa-

Along with discussing matters
pertaining to Canada-Caribbean

the last election to Charles May-

Mrs Wright, president of the

Though Mr Halkitis' political

not.
Mr Ingraham added that he is
satisfied that the appointments

odds over the controversy.
"My position is clear, I think
the prime minister's position is

he said.

gested that the third Senate
appointment will go to Leslie

While this policy is still in place,
said the aspiring lawyer, state-
ments made by the College of the
Bahamas indicating its commit-
ment to increasing enrolment are
meaningless.
"Are we being realistic or are
we just paying lip service?" Mr
Emmanuel asked.
Mr Emmanuel said the coun-
try, already drawing from a small
talent pool, is denying itself of
more potential "great thinkers"
and is, in the process, creating a
class of ostracised, dejected
youths who feel unwanted and
denied opportunities to progress

including both students and fac-
ulty, in the Bahamas on key chal-
lenges and solutions for the future
of the region and Canada's
engagement with it.
Hosting the conference in the
Bahamas at COB is considered an
accomplishment for the institu-
tion's president, Janyne Hodder.
Mr Clarke was elected to
Canada's House of Commons
eight times and served 25 years in
parliament. He is currently pres-

discussions.
These include, building self-
sufficiency and problem-solving
capacity within communities of
the Caribbean; a focus on the
linkages between tourism and
other sectors of the economy; an
exploration of the evolving role of
higher education institutions in
Caribbean countries, and a dis-
cussion on the important role and
history that the church has played
throughout the region.


Senator


informed The Tribune on Thurs-
day, that he has not been
approached to join the upper
chamber.
"I know nothing officially of
what these people are talking
about. I have not been notified
by anyone," he said.
PLP insiders have told The
Tribune that the party plans a
vigorous legal challenge if the
remaining three Senators are
not PLPs. Further, they declared
that the party also is of the opin-
ion that the leader of the oppo-
sition should choose the three
PLPs.
The press statement from the
cabinet office concluded by stat-
ing that "the Governor-general
will be advised by the prime min-
ister on the third and final
appointment to the Senate fol-
lowing the prime minister's fur-
ther consultation with the leader
of the opposition."

should make a proclamation that

will desist right now," he said.
The economy and the crime

current and former Canadian and
Caribbean officials, senior politi-
cians and analysts met at the
Canadian Embassy in Washing-

The lawyer noted that he
expects Mr Foulkes to do "what
he has to do in the interest of
the country and the parties
involved."
He described the meeting as
"productive" but declined to dis-
close any further details, other
than he was expecting a call to
arrange another meeting shortly.
Officers from the union are in

Morton Salt workers have been
without an industrial agreement
since September 2005. In April,
around 100 workers protested
when it was proposed that their
working week be cut to three
days.
Managing Director Glen Ban-
nister blamed low salt produc-
tion, but union members called
it unfair, and tantamount to union
busting tactics as the reduction
only applied to line staff, not non-
unionised managerial and super-
visory staff.
The union which claims to

staff as members is demanding

and how it might be revived.
The result was a strong agree- -
ment on the principle of renewal,
and a general consensus on some
specific initiatives that might be
considered, including a "modem"
trade agreement, Canadian lead-
ership in donor co-ordination in
the region, and Canadian support
for research on high priority
Caribbean issues, by way of a
public policy institute and other
initiatives.

a 5 to 6 per cent basic salary raise
for the years 2007 to 2009.
Morton Salt's last offer was
an increase of 3.75 per cent, in
addition to a 40-hour week
productivity bonus, which
roughly equates to another 2
.per cent.
Such a productivity bonus"
would only kick in if workers
achieve a certain harvested salt
tonnage.
Workers would like to see the -
increases attached to their basic
salary, whereas the company,
which employs roughly 60 per -I
cent of Inagua's population, have i
previously indicated that they -
would prefer a smaller salary
increase in combination with the -
condition of increased productiv-
ity.
With such a large proportion '
of the island's population "
employed by Morton Salt, if the
disagreement drags on for much
longer there is potential for the
island's economy to suffer signif-
icant disruption.

number one international city
destination lor the summer, with
the Bahamas' Paradise Island
corning in tenth behind other
Mexican and European cities.
Travelocity also places Cancun
at the top of its list for the most
popular international beach des-
tination for this Memorial Day
weekend ahead of Los Cabos,
the Bahamas and the Dominican
Republic, among other beach des-
tinations.
Speaking with The Tribune
yesterday, Tourism Director Gen-
eral Vernice Walkine confirmed
that Cancun has long been on
the radar of the Ministry of
Tourism as a very real competi-
tion to the Bahamas.
Mrs Walkine explained that
Cancun has advantages that the
Bahamas does not have, in terms
of labour force, funds and natur-


al resources.
"The cost at which they can
offer their product is a lot lower
than ours. They can more attrac-
tively price themselves, it's a
much bigger tourism destination
in terms of the population base to
service the industry," she said.
Mrs Walkine said that Cancun
also has access to a lot more mon-
ey to spend on promotion.
"By all reports, they have
somewhere in the neighbourhood
of $100 million they have been
spending on advertisements
alone. It is impossible for us to
compete with that," she said.
Due to a large labour pool, the
Mexican city has also been able to
build many new hotels on the
beach.
Mrs Walkine said that Cancun
has been "on a roll" since recov-
ering from the hurricanes of 2005.


However, the tourism direc-
tor general pointed out that there
are still some clear differences
between Cancun's primary
tourism market and the one the
Bahamas is targeting.
Mrs Walkine explained that
the Bahamas still does very well
in attracting the affluent family,
while Cancun is a great success
with the Spring Break crowds.
She added that in going after
the affluent, discriminating trav-
eller the Bahamas has as its com-
petition many destinations
around the globe including
Dubai, which has been making
significant inroads into the Amer-
ican market.
Mrs Walkine said she still
believes that developing the oth-
er islands in the Bahamas will
give the country a major advan-
tage over its competitors in the


tourism market.
"It is my considered opinion-
that to the degree to which we
can develop those islands unique- 1
ly, we will have a story to tell that -
no one else can tell and that is a',
whole menu of island options for' I
the consumer to pick and choose
from," she said.
Cancun has steadily been
increasing its efforts to further
strengthen its positioning on the,
Mayan Gold Coast.
The Cancun Convention and
Visitors Bureau (CVB) recently,
announced that eight new and,
recently reopened hotels are
ready for the summer season.
In addition to new and upscale
hotels, Cancun offers tourists a
16-mile stretch of beach, proxim-
ity to historic Mayan archeologi-
cal sites and the world's second
largest coral reef.

1. Three notrump. A sound bidder
constantly tries to choose the bid that
will best reflect the strength and
character of his hand. The aim is to
make it easy for partner to select the
right contract after you've told him
what you have.
Consequently, it would be
improper to bid only two notrump
here. Partner already knows you
have an opening hand with spades
and diamonds, but he doesn't know
you have 17 high-card points
(instead of perhaps 13 or 14) and 5-
4-2-2 distribution (instead of, say, 5-
5-2-1 or 6-5-1-1). The jump to three
notrump is intended to clear up that
mystery.
2. Three clubs. Here you're faced
with a different type of hand, so you

send a different type of message.
Tia't, you have a minimum opening
bid, so you don't jump the bidding.
Second, you have as-yet undisclosed
support for clubs, your partner's
first-bid suit, plus a singleton heart,
so you don't bid notrump. Three
clubs pinpoints the shortage in
hearts, since you've now bid three
suits. From here on, the rest is up to
partner.
3. Three spades. Here is still
another type of hand. This time you
can't support clubs, because you
haven't any, and you can't support
hearts, because you have only three
of them and partner apparently has a
four-card suit.
Your spades are almost self-
sufficient, even opposite a singleton
or a void, and you have 16 high-card
points, so the three-spade bid is fully
justified. If you were to bid only two
spades, partner might think you had
only 13 or 14 points.
4. Three diamonds. This is the
most illuminating call possible. By
bidding three diamonds you show
five of them, and you've already
shown at least five spades. The three-,
diatond bid puts partner in position
to place the final contract, whether it
be a game or a slam in a-suit.or,
notrump.

There is no denying that a certain
Amount of guesswork is inevitable in
bridge. However, it is also true that
some guesses are self-inflicted and
can be avoided with correct play. In
these cases, a player has only himself
to blame if he subjects himself to a
guess and then goes wrong.
Consider this deal where West led
the ten of clubs against three
notrump. The jack was covered by
the king and ace, and declarer, after
cashing four diamonds, then had to
decide whether to tackle hearts or
spades.


When he led a low spade from
dummy, East alertly rose with the ace
and returned a cliib. Declarer
allowed West's eight to hold the
trick, but another club drove out the
queen. South now had only eight
tricks, and when he tried for a ninth
by leading a heart, West took the ace
and cashed two clubs for down one.
Had declarer guessed to attack
hearts first, he would have made his
contract, since this would have
removed West's entry before the
clubs became established.
However, the outcome was due not
so much to an unlucky guess as it
was to declarer's play. Had he
ducked East's king of clubs at trick
one, he would have avoided subse-
quent guesswork entirely.
The practical danger is that West
has five clubs and a side ace. By
ducking the opening trick, declarer
can disrupt the opposing communi-
cations.
Assuming East returns a club,
South wins and can attack either
spades or hearts and make his con-
tract. If spades are chosen, East can
win but has no club to return, giving
declarer time to develop a heart trick.
Alternatively, if South tries hearts
first, West can win, but he loses the
entry to his clubs in the process, after
which spades can be safely broached.
No guessworjk, is really necessa',
, at all. ,

Opening lead king of diamonds.
Special circumstances sometimes
force declarer to abandon the normal
way to play a suit. One of the most
important reasons for this is to try to
prevent a particular defender from
gaining the lead.
Examine this case where West
leads the diamond king against four
hearts. When dummy comes down,
South sees there are two possible los-
ers in spades, two more in trumps
and another in diamonds. If he loses
all of them, he goes down two.
On the more positive side, how-


)|


Calvin & Hobbes


ever, declarer notes that he is far
more likely to lose one trump trick
than two. Furthermore, if everything
goes well, he may also be able to dis-
card a loser or two on dummy's
clubs.
The problein for South from the
start is to try to keep the defenders
from scoring four tricks before he
can take 10. To this end, he must find
a way to stop East from gaining the
lead and returning a spade through
the king.
Accordingly, declarer ducks
West's king of diamonds at trick one
to prevent him from later putting
East on lead with a diamond. After
West exits with a diamond to
dummy's ace, South's next concern
is how to tackle the trumps.
Ordinarily, with this trump com-
bination, declarer might play the ace
and another heart. But here, given the
circumstances, there is too much
danger that East might gain the lead
with the king. At trick three, there-
fore, declarer leads dummy's trump
seven and lets it ride after East plays
low.
West wins with the jack but is
helpless. Whatever he returns, South
picks up East's king on the next
trump lead and easily makes the con-
tract. In fact, if West does not cash
his ace of spades after scoring the
trump jack, declarer finishes with an
overtrick.

TUESDAY,
MAY 29

ARIES Mar 21/Apr 20
You'll be forced to make a bigdeci
sion by Thursday, Aries. Better:spen
some time mulling over all the facts so
you're not caught off guard. Leo can
lend a helping hand.
TAURUS Apr 21/May 21
All signs point toward an easy'week
for you, Taurus. However, you ,know
how quickly things can change.'Better
keep your guard up so nothing sneaks
up behind you.
GEMINI May 22/Jun 21
Take a few minutes to think before
you act, Gemini. Rash decisions some-
times work out, but more often than
not they le-d to errors that later have to
be corrected.
CANCER Jun 22/Jul 22
You're in a rocky stretch with your
romantic partner, Cancer. You're
playing a game of "he said, she said."
A wise idea is to retire to your sepa-
rate comers and let things cool off.
LEO Jul 23/Aug 23
Big changes are in store this week,
Leo. See if you can muster the
energy to keep up .with all of the
excitement that will take place.
Pisces plays a key role.
VIRGO Aug 24/Sep 22
With warm spring weather here, take
advantage and spend as much time
as you can outdoors. This could be
the ideal time to visit the park with
your pooch.
LIBRA Sep 23/Oct 23'
More responsibilities at work are on
the horizon for you, Libra. Maybe
you're not sure if you're ready to
take them on. Rest assured that you
have the skills and the smarts.
SCORPIO Oct 24/Nov 22
For once, your schedule isn't jam-
packed with responsibilities, Scorpio.
Enjoy the breather by focusing some
attention on yourself. Visit a spa for
some pampering or curl up with a book.
SAGITTARIUS Nov 23/Dec 21
A hot temper will not solve the diffi-
culty you've been having at work,
Sagittarius. As hard as it may .e,
you must keep your wits abotutyou
to find a solution. .
CAPRICORN Dec 22/Jan 20
It's time to put your family "first,
Capricorn. They've been doing much
to help you out lately, and you need
to reciprocate. Cook dinner, or treat
everyone to something nice.
AQUARIUS Jan 21/Feb 18
A financial investment seems like a
sure thing, Aquarius, but uilder-
neath, it's a money pit. Think twtoe
before you leap into this venture, or
else there will be consequences.
PISCES Feb 19/Mar 20
Your frustration levels are elevated,
Pisces. That's because you're feel-
ing the time crunch for work and
home projects. Slow down.


S -OSObyeo arB.


Hendrique Mecking v Tan Lian
Ann, Petropolis 1973. Material is
level, and although White's
queen, rook and bishop are all
well placed for attack, the
problem is that his own king is
exposed. The obvious play 1
Rxc7 Qel + 2 Kg2 allows Black
to draw by Qe2 + when the
black queen delivers perpetual
check to the white king. But
Brazil's Mecking, then the
number-one grandmaster in
South America, knew the
technique which experts call
"the skewer" and took just two
turns to induce his Indonesian
opponent to resign. What
happened?
