THE PLP has accepted
the results of the last elec-
tion, but the party maintains
its right to pursue justice for
any irregularities that may
have occurred during the
process, according to Oppo-
sition Leader Perry Christie.
Mr Christie spoke to The
Tribune on the eve of the
historic filing of four or five
election court challenges
that have the potential to
shift the balance of political
power in the Bahamas.
The former prime minis-
ter told The Tribune that he
thinks the process of the
SEE page 10

the Tribune yesterday.
"There were applications
heard for leave to issue peti-
tions in Pinewood and Marco
City and both applications were
granted and there is now leave
to issue those two petitions. The
other three will be dealt with
on Monday," Mr Munroe
The applications were heard
yesterday in closed court before
Supreme Court justice Cheryl
Albury, he said. On Monday,
the PLP's legal team is expected
to return to court to file appli-
cations in relation to the Blue
Hills, Sea Breeze and Golden
Isles seats, Mr Munroe said.
The PLP's Pleasant Bridge-
water, who has been appointed
to the Senate, lost to the FNM's
Zhivargo Laing now Minis-
ter of State for Finance by 47
votes, according to results of
the May 2 general election.
The Sea Breeze, Blue Hills
and Golden Isles seats were all
secured by the FNM by fewer
than 70 votes. The FNM won
the Sea Breeze constituency by
64 votes; Blue Hills by 47; Gold-
en Isles by 62 and Marco City
by 47.
The PLP had 21 days after
the opening of parliament on
May 23 to file its applications,
meaning that, excluding Sun-
days and public holidays, the
deadline to do so would fall on
Monday, June 18.
Mr Munroe explained that,
in order to file an election court
petition, one first needed the
permission of a Supreme Court
"Once the judge gives you
permission you can file it. After
you get permission to file the
petition you have to do certain
things like enter a recognisance
with sureties, serve the petition
and certain other documents.
"Then, after that point, the
other party responds and,
depending how they respond,
that will determine how the
matter progresses from there,"
he said.
Mr Munroe said that the
election court process did not
necessarily have to be a lengthy
"It could take time but we
are all lawyers and we have an
obligation to proceed with the
case as expeditiously as possi-
ble," he said.
"The only reason for anyone
to try and drag this on is if they
are afraid of the consequences,"
Mr Munroc suggested yester-
In an earlier interview. Mr
Munroe stated that he believes
it is possible that thousands, if
not tens of thousands, of non-
citizens may have voted in the
May 2 general election.

Students lacking

leaving diplomas

Tribune Staff Reporter
THE Ministry of Education will be looking
into re-instituting some form of "leaving school
diploma" after disturbing figures revealed that a
large number of students graduating from gov-
ernment high schools are not receiving a diploma.
C V Bethel High School recently held its grad-
uation exercise and, as Mr Bethel revealed, few-
er than half of the 400 students graduated with a
The same could be said for L W Young, it was
claimed, where out of the 400 graduates, fewer
than 100 received their diplomas this year.
Noting that C V Bethel was one of the higher

performing schools in the BGCSE exercises, Mr
Bethel said that there must be a concerted effort
to look at re-evaluating the current curriculum,
citing the recent graduation exercise.
"There are a number of things, and one of
them we will be looking at is re-instituting some
form of school leaving certificate that would indi-
cate that, notwithstanding their failure to get
these diplomas or BGCSEs or the like, that they
have completed the course and achieved certain
standards, so that people will not be leaving
schools with nothing in their hands, no record of
them having passed through the public educa-
tion system.

THE FNM has not yet assembled a legal team
to represent its interests in the election court
challenges the PLP has and will continue to file,
The Tribune was told by the party's vice-chair-
man, Senator Johnley Ferguson.
"If they (the PLP) proceed to file as they said
they will do. we will then do what we need to
do," Mr Ferguson explained in an interview yes-
The FNM vice-chairman confidently said that
his party has no fear of the election court chal-
lenges the PLP has instigated.
"There's no fear. The government organised an
election, went to an election, and turned out the
opposition, and then they're crying foul. That's
their right," he said.
Mr Ferguson added that the filing of these

challenges demonstrated that the PLP is desper-
ate in the wake of the FNM's victory, and their
decision to challenge the election results vali-
dates his party's claim that the PLP mishandled
the organisation of the election process as, for
example, was witnessed by the late report of the
constituency's commission.
The PLP was so sure that it would win the elec-
tion, that they did not heed the advice of critics
who argued that the then government had, in
some ways, mishandled the process, Mr Ferguson
He also said that, if the PLP had won, there
would not be any complaint about the validity of
the May 2 results.
"So they will continue to find ways to make the
public believe that they should have been the

Kermit returns as iguana

ARDASTRA Gardens has
adopted a new green iguana
by the name of Kermit.
The young iguana was found
wandering over the lawns of
Atlantis on Paradise Island.
Since green iguanas are not
native to the Bahamas, it is
assumed that he was brought
into the country and then was
either released or escaped.
He is the fourth green igua-
na to be adopted by Ardastra
under these sad circumstances.
If he or the others had
remained in the environment
and flourished, they then
would have become part of a
problem that is even more seri-
ous. They would have become
an "introduced species."
Introduced species is a term
used for non-native plants or
animals brought in to a partic-
ular region by people. With-
out proper management and
foresight, they can have a dev-
astating effect on the natural
environment into which they
are transferred.
These non-native animals
often turn feral and can prey
on the native animals, compete
with them for food and shel-
ter, and bing with them a host

of diseases.
The green iguana is normal-
ly found in the tropical and
subtropical regions from north-
ern Mexico to central South
The word Iguana comes
from the Spanish version of
the Carib word "iwana".
The iguana family includes
about 30 different species.
Green iguanas have short,
powerful limbs equipped with
strong, sharp claws (for climb-
ing and digging), and a long,
strong tail.
They can reach lengths of
6'6" feet.
A large flap of skin hangs
from the throat and helps reg-
ulate body temperature.
Vision, hearing and the
sense of smell are acute. Green
iguanas are somewhat clumsy,
but accomplished tree
They tend to bask by day on
tree branches and are com-
monly found near water and
are excellent swimmers. When
threatened or cornered, igua-
nas can defend themselves with
astonishingly quick, whip-like
lashes of their tails and with
their laws and jaws.

The survival of turtles
across the Caribbean region
is being threatened by over-
exploitation of the creatures
in legal fisheries.and through
illegal harvest and trade,
according to a new report.
TRAFFIC, a wildlife trade
monitoring network, say
Caribbean nations need to
improve their co-operation
to manage and conserve the
region's turtles.
Thd reptiles are under-
siege thanks to the demand
for their shells, meat and
eggs with the first of these
commonly ending up as per-
sonal items purchased by
tourists in some Caribbean
nations, the report said.
Others indirectly fall prey
to nets put down for other
sealife, often drowning in the

patchy turtles may be
adequately protected in
some waters, but then travel
into areas where they are at
risk from unmanaged or ille-
gal take," said Steven Broad,

Turtle eggs generally
enjoy greater protection
than the animals themselves.
It is against the law to take
turtle eggs in the Bahamas.
However, in Guatemala, vir-
tually every egg laid is
picked up for human con-
sumption, the report states.
The report recommends
the establishment of scien-
tifically-based limits on the
exploitation of marine tur-
tles, comprehensive surveys

20 year-old's murder

Much work

to be done

on COB's


status bid
Minister of Education
Carl Bethel told MPs dur-
ing the budget debate that
much remains to be done at
the College of the Bahamas
before "any credible transi-
tion" to university status can
be made.
COB will continue to
receive "strong financial
support" from this admin-
istration, he said.
Of the $6.7 million
increase in its government
provided recurrent budget,
about 56 per cent, or $3.8
million, is provided to satis-
fy personal emoluments.
"The remaining $3 mil-
lion will be used to improve
the college's capital assets,
which will be necessary if
that institution is to make
the complete transition to
the level of a full-fledged
university," he said.
The government will also
contribute $1 million to the
construction of a new
library for the college.
Mr Bethel maintained
that much remains to be
done before any credible
transition to university sta-
tus can be made.
"The proposed new
library must be built, and
critical decisions have to be
made as to the location and
building of the new science
labs," Mr Bethel said.
While great improve-
ments had been made in
increasing the number of
lecturers who had obtained
doctorate degrees, he said,
greater effort was still
required to encourage and
assist even more Bahami-
ans to achieve doctoral
"Additionally, greater
exposure and training of lec-
turers through the facilita-
tion of academic sabbaticals
to other more established
institutions of higher learn-
ing are necessary to broaden
and deepen the academic
experience of lecturers," he
The minister told parlia-
mentarians that the govern-
ment will work closely with
the COB council to assist in
securing financing for the
new Harry Moore Library,

sidered needs for the fur-

Billy Graham's soul mate dies

MONTREAT, N.C. (AP) On a recent vis-
it to Ruth and Billy Graham's beloved home in
the western North Carolina mountains, her local
pastor recalled, the world's most renowned evan-
gelist fumbled the words to the 23rd Psalm -
one of his wife's favourites.
As she had so many times before, Ruth Gra-
ham quickly corrected her husband.
It was yet another little reminder of the role
Ruth Graham played as her husband's closest
confidant, the Rev. Richard White said. The first
lady of evangelical Protestantism, she undoubt-
edly was an equal partner in a ministry that Bil-
ly Graham carried to presidents and peasants
alike during a spectacular global career that
placed him in the pulpit before mtore than 210
million people.
"She had the ability to move among presi-
dents and leaders, but then turn right around
and clean the oven of a widow," White said.
Former President George H.WV. Bush remem-
bered her as "a wonderful, kind and wise woman
who brightened all our lives."
Nancy Reagan described her as a friend to
her and late President Reagan and an extraor-
dinarily caring woman who was devoted to her
family. "I admired the fact that she also found the
time to care about other children and those less
fortunate through her work as an author, poet
and philanthropist," she said. "I know Billy's
heart will be broken with this loss."
A daughter of Presbyterian missionaries who
surrendered dreams of such work in Tibet after
meeting Billy Graham, Ruth Graham died
Thursday at her home, surroUnded by her hus-
band and their five children. Shewas 87.
"Ruth was my life partner, and we were called
by God as a tea!'," Billy Graham said in a state-
ment. "No one else could have borne the load
that she carried. She was a vital and integral part
of our ministry, and my work through the years
would have been impossible without her encour-
agement and support.
"I am so grateful to the Lord that he gave me
Ruth, and especially for these last few years
we've had in the mot. stains together. We've
rekindled the romance of our youth, and my
love for her continued to grow deeper every day.
I will miss her terribly, and look forward even
more to the day I can join her in Heaven."
Ruth Graham had been bedridden for months
with degenerative osteoarthritis of the back and
neck the result of a serious fall from a tree in
1974 while fixing a swing for grandchildren. She
underwent treatment for pneumonia two weeks
ago. At her request, and in consultation with

her family, she had stopped receiving nutrients
through a feeding tube for the last few days, said
family spokesman Larry Ross.
The family has planned a public memorial ser-
vice for 2 p.m. today at the Montreat Conference
Centre. A private interment service will be held
the next day in Charlotte.
Ruth Graham grew up in China, where her
father, L. Nelson Bell, headed the Presbyterian
hospital in Qingjiang. She spent three high school
years in what's now North Korea.
She met Billy Graham at Wheaton College in
Illinois, where he managed to coax her away
from the foreign missions calling and into mar-
riage after they graduated in 1943. In 1945, after
a brief stint pastoring a suburban Chicago con-
gregation, he became a roving speaker for the
fledgling Youth for Christ organization.
Ruth Graham moved the couple into her par-
ents' home in Montreat, where they had relo-
cated after fleeing wartime China, and they lat-
er bought their own home across the street
before moving into Little Piney Cove. It was a
comfortably rustic mountainside home she
designed using logs from abandoned cabins, and
became Billy's retreat between evangelistic for-
"My father would not have been what he is
today if it wasn't for my mother," said her son
Franklin, who now heads the Billy Graham
Evangelist Association.
"She stood strong for what was biblically cor-
rect and accurate. She would help my father pre-
pare his messages, listening with an attentive
ear, and if she saw something that wasn't right or
heard something that she felt wasn't as strong as
it could be, she was a voice to strengthen this or
eliminate that. Every person needs that kind of
input in their life, and she was that to my father."
Though the wife of a famous Baptist minister,
Ruth Graham declined to undergo baptism by
immersion and remained a lifelong Presbyter-
ian. When in Montreat, a town built around a
Presbyterian conference centre, Billy Graham
would attend the Presbyterian church where his
wife often taught the college-age Sunday School
Due to her husband's travels, she bore major
responsibility for raising the couple's five chil-
dren: Franklin (William Franklin III), Nelson,
Virginia, Anne and Ruth. Sne endured her hus-
band's frequent absences, but once remarked,
"I'd rather have a little of Bill than a lot of any
other man."

'Chest' get


these signs

off island

EDITOR, The Tribune.

I SHALL be grateful if you
would publish this letter in your
paper in order to bring the sub-
ject matter to the attention of
the proper Government author-
ity. The 2007 general elections
are now history and I am
pleased to see that many of the
election posters have come
down. This letter is not directed
at election posters.
It has always been my under-
standing that to put up a sign
on government or private prop-
erty (you may correct me if I
am wrong) requires permission
from the relevant department
of the Ministry of Works. Even
putting up a sign in front of your
business establishment requires
such permission (I am not refer-
ring to, for example, a "For
Sale" or "For Rent" sign in
front of the subject property).
New Providence has been
covered with all kinds of signs
advertising the sale of land,
goods and services. Some one in
particular has littered the island
with signs that read "Open

House Exclusive Waterfront
Condos and Marina call----".
What are these people doing?
Instead of advertising in a dig-
nified way, eg in newspapers,
brochures, TV and radio or
through realtors, they have put
up a great number of these signs
on trees, walls, utility poles, at
roundabouts, at hotel exits, at
the top of the hill, at the bottom
of the hill, and around the bend.
They have even put one sign up
that covers a traffic sign that
reads "Dual Carriageway" at
the western end of the Sandy-
Port Bridge...wow! Pretty bold!
These people may not realise
it but these signs are having a
negative affect on many people
who have to look at them every
time they drive the main roads.
Then there are signs that read if
you "want you house or Apt
paint call --------", and "Sanco
car rentals call---", and "Time-

less Tools rentals call---", and
"Generators for sale call --------
-", and "Justice of the Peace
and Marriage Officer call -------
-", and on and on. The new sign
going up all over the Island
reads "Supply Contractors
Direct call -------", a USA
These signs plastered all over
the place take away from the
natural beauty of our Island. It
seems to be a free-for-all and
out of control. If one wants to
advertise simply produce a cou-
ple hundred signs and inundate
the landscape. Perhaps the rel-
evant Government authority
will look into this situation and
if indeed these signs are unau-
thorised and unapproved they
can be taken down and any
offenders fined since a phone
contact has been provided.
Many thanks for the opportu-
I have now got this off my

May, 2007.

some positive action from the

me to write this letter and ask:

many of the sites of new resorts
which will define our landscape.
In numerous cases there is an
absolute disregard for building
in our traditional island-style.
There are some notable excep-
tions such as the French Leave
Resort in Governor's Harbour,
Eleuthera, the Chub Cay devel-
opment in the Berry islands and
February Point in Exuma to
name a few which do reflect our
Bahamian style.
I recently attended a "focus
group" which examined the
plans of the Ritz Carlton devel-
opment on Rose island. I was
shocked as the plans were
unveiled showing a 7-storey rec-
tangular box which was touted
as "contemporary and forward
thinking which answered the
call of today's buyers."
I applaud Ritz Carlton for
hosting this focus group and
hope that they re-think their
plans to build a decidedly un-
Bahamian hotel and residential
community on a gem of a very
Bahamian island.
When one travels to Nan-
tucket or Martha's Vineyard

you expect to see Salt Box
architecture with weathered
cedar shingled buildings, in
Indonesia one expects to see
shaggy-thatched island
dwellings. When one travels to
the Bahamas what does the
traveller expect to find?
What do we want to see as
Bahamians ?
Our traditional architecture
while defining our Bahamian-
ism also just makes sense, as it
provides shade with large over-
hangs, wrap around verandahs
with large openings to take
advantage of cooling breezes.
Why are the communities of
Harbour island and Hope Town
booming? ....because of their
island charm!
Contemporary designs
become dated our island style
will always be classic.

The reasons for

the PLP's defeat

EDITOR, The Tribune.

ALLOW me to congratulate
the voters of the Bahamas for a
job well done and on the level
of maturity and intelligence in
the recent elections.
I am so proud of my people.
However there's some concern
for the voters of Golden Gates,
Fox Hill, Kennedy and North
What does this say about
most of the voters in these
Permit me to give my views
on why the PLP lost.
1) Spitefulness, victimisation,
2) Unfair practices towards
the FNM and their supporters,
eg, ZNS and venues for their
rallies, eg, the circus and R M
Bailey Park.
3) Bold-face, brazen lies,
honestly, these people are unbe-
4) Algernon Allen, Ten-
nyson Wells, Cargill, Rolle,

Dupuch ad nauseum, etc.
5) Immature and infantile
6) They were too secretive
with the people's business.
7) Only PLPs benefited
from the "robust economy?" or
anything else.
8) Steve McKinney and
Phillipa Russell of ZNS.
9) Tried to insult the peo-
ple's intelligence, but it back-
10) Their arrogance and dis-
11) The many scandals they
subjected the country to and
saw nothing wrong with it.
Don't seem to understand right
from wrong.
12) Christie's shuffle, kind of
like "while Nero fiddled, Rome
They shot themselves in foot,
ie, when they weren't putting it
in their mouth.

Korean war veteran

urges end to Alcatraz

escape 'persecution'

A KOREAN War veteran in
his late seventies yesterday
called for an end to speculation
which, he claimed, was casting
suspicion on him as the infa-
mous Alcatraz escapee,
Clarence Anglin.
He urged Nassau artist Fred-
die Pinder Jr to stop his "cam-
paign of persecution", adding:
"This is causing me a whole
bunch of trouble."
American Mr Bob Thornton,
77, who lives in eastern Grand
Bahama, said Mr Pinder's wide-
ly proclaimed theories about
the Alcatraz prison escape of
1962 had led to police knock-
ing on'his door several times.
And on every occasion, he
said, they had dismissed Mr Pin-
der's suspicions that he was
somehow linked to the daring
escape plot from the notorious
island fortress in San Francisco
"Believe it or not, I can't even
swim," Mr Thornton told The
Tribune yesterday. "I've never
even met this guy Pinder. I
don't know what his gimmickry
is all about, but he is insulting
everybody and making out I'm
a murderer."
In fact, none of The Tribune's
stories relating to Mr Pinder's
theories has named anyone as
the man Mr Pinder believes is
Clarence Anglin. But Mr
Thornton known affection-
ately as 'Daddy Bob' to friends
- says other media outlets have
been more explicit, and he is
the one who has fallen under
"That guy John Walsh of
America's Most Wanted even
had the police on to me one
time," said Mr Thornton. "But
all these stories about me are
In fact, he said, he first
arrived in the Bahamas in 1957
and bought seven acres of

waterfront land on Grand
Bahama in 1960.
In 1962, when the Alcatraz
prison breakout occurred, he
was employed at AUTEC in
Andros, having quit the US Air
Force two years before.
He said he could prove his
identity through his fingerprints,
which were on file in Washing-
ton, DC, because at one time
he had top secret security clear-
ance through his work for the
American government.
He said Mr Pinder's claims
were causing him problems
because people were "kind of
edgy" when he referred to
Clarence Anglin having mur-
dered his two co-escapees in
"People are talking because
they feel I fit. Everyone knows
me up here. But I was here in
1960 (two years before the
Alcatraz escape) and was work-
ing for the US Navy at AUTEC
at the time.
"After I left AUTEC in 1973,
I worked for the Bahamas gov-
ernment as a civil servant until
1992. By making these claims,
Mr Pinder is insulting every-
body the US embassy, the
Bahamas government, the
police who he says have been
taking bribes from me for years,
and everybody else associated
with me."
Referring to Mr Pinder's
claims that Anglin had financed
his life in the Bahamas with
spoils from his days as a bank
robber, he said: "I am not a
wealthy man. I have a Bahamas

government pension and a few
investments. I am not a multi-
"I own this property and I
own a house in Nassau which
is at Oakes Field. My wife is a
Bahamian from Long Island. I
ain't no escapee from Alcatraz."

"That guy
John Walsh
even had the
police on to
me one time."

Both Mr Thornton and his
friend, Clarence Billot, a pho-
tolab owner in Grand Bahama,
think Mr Pinder has ulterior
motives for his claims which
centre on former Pinder land.
Mr Thornton said he bought
his Grand Bahama property
from a man called Saul Pinder
nearly half a century ago. His
deeds were recorded in the reg-
istry and handled by a lawyer.
He believes Mr Pinder's cam-
paign is somehow linked with
his ownership of former Pinder
Mr Bellot agreed. "But now
it's time to leave him alone.
They have already called in the
police and FBI. He is almost 80
now and hobbles around. To
him, it's a big joke, and he pre-

tends it doesn't bother him. But
enough is enough. Bob is defi-
nitely not their man I would
put my head on the block for
He also dismissed Mr Pin-
der's claim that Clarence Anglin
shot his two fellow fugitives, his
brother John Anglin and escape
plot leader Frank Morris, after
they had been living on Grand
Bahama for seven years.
Mr Pinder claimed Angliin
strapped the bodies in a jeep
and tugged it into the centre of
a muddy creek,,where it was
washed up after Hurricane
Floyd 30 years later.
"But those creeks are so shal-
low, it would be impossible to
hide a jeep in there," he said.
"The story, 1 agree, has Hol-
lywood written all over it, but
my issue is that the Pinders con-
tinue to call into talk shows and
various other media proclaim-
ing that Clarence Anglin still
lives in the East End. As a
result of their ratings, they
have had the police fingerprint
and harass a man who is very
dear to me.
"I myself have been doing
business here in Grand Bahama
for the last 21 years and I have a
problem with these fairy tales.
They are causing Daddy Bob
and his wife much inconve-
nience in their retirement
Mr Pinder's theories about
the Alcatraz breakout were dis-
cussed in last Monday's

Mr Taylor is pictured being installed as a member of the student
government by the deputy principal Professor Kochhar at the St
Augustine University of the West Indies.

Ex-COB student

head in UWI first

MACHALE Taylor, former College of the Bahamas Union
of Students (COBUS) president and 2005 'youth in parlia-
ment' speaker, became the first Bahamian student to serve as
an executive for the student government at the St Augustine
University of the West Indies.
Mr Taylor is currently going into his second year of medical
school at the University of the West Indies in Trinidad.
He was elected guild secretary, making him the third most
influential student in the university which consists of over
15,000 students.
Elections were held in April and he received 866 votes. He is
also the first, first-year student to win the position.
In September 2007, Mr Taylor transferred to the St Augus-
tine campus from the Cave Hill campus after completing the
pre-medical programme with honours.
Continuing his push to give students a voice, Mr Taylor was
elected as the student representative for first-year medical stu-
dents, a position that saw him representing 400 medical students.
Shortly after he was elected deputy hall chair of the Joyce
Gibson Innis Hall, the medical student's hall of residence.

Helping the Bahamas

dance to a new tune

MR ALEX Zybine began his
tenure in the Bahamas through
an invitation from Mr Hubert
Farrington, director of the Nas-
sau Civic Ballet.
In 1970, he was offered a
teaching position by the Min-
istry of Education to teach
dance at the C C Sweeting
Senior High School where he
worked for two years.
It was here that Mr Zybine
met and taught many of his stu-
dents. Meanwhile, Lady Nancy
Oakes, Baroness Von Hoynin-
gen Huene, offered the use of
the abandoned residence on
West Hill Street known as the
'Villa Doyle' as a centre for
artistic and cultural activities.
Mr Zybine invited the late
Kayla Lockhart Edwards and
Mr Cedrick Scott to use adja-
cent rooms as a base for musical
and drama rehearsal projects.
The ballroom was then reno-
vated by Mrs Violelt Zybine for
dance classes. At this time, a
non-profit organisation was
formed and the core group of
dancers brainstormed until the
late Claxton McPhee came up
with the name "The New Breed
Dancers Ltd." This group
brought credence to the
Bahamas in the dance arena.
Classes were given by Mr
Zybine daily and free of charge,
the aim being to promote the
art of dance within the Bahami-
an Community.
This group drew all of its
financial support through per-
formances, engagements and
tours. In 1974, the group num-
bered close to 75 participants.
At this time, the Minister of
Education was the late Liv-
ingston Coakley, who made a
major impact in the lives of the
core group of dancers that rep-
resented the Bahamas both
nationally and internationally,

The talented Bahamian Mr
Clement Bethel (deceased) also
played a major role in the lives
of most of the dancers. He
assisted the group with musical
scores and music that he per-

posed. His humour and down-
to-earth personality made it eas-
ier for all to work together.

Violet Zybine was the critic
and seamstress for the group.
Her input was an invaluable
asset to her husband's success.
Jean Collins was also a valuable
asset as wardrobe mistress.
The group's first performance
was at the Sheraton British
Colonial Hotel, then the Gov-
ernment High School, where
the famous Folklore Shows
were held.
At the beginning of 1972 the
Ministry of Tourism offered the
New Breed Dancers, the
Lucayan Chorale directed by
Virginia Roach, John Chippie

Clement Bethel, Billy Nelson
and Bob Brome the opportuni-
ty to produce the Folklore

participants included Nathanial

sponsorship of the Ministry Of
Tourism, 'Misa Caribe" was
produced at "Le Cabaret The-
atre" on Paradise Island. Music
was composed, written and pro-

duced by Cleophas Adderley

This major event was held
under the patronage of the
Right Rev Michael Eldon, Lord
Bishop of Nassau in the
Bahamas and the Rev Mon-
signor Preston Moss.
The New Breed Dancers core
group performed successful
tours throughout Detroit, Pitts-
burgh, Chicago, Cleveland, Ger-
many, Washington, New
Orleans, Jamaica, Canada,
Mexico and participated in Car-
ifesta and Carnival.
These dancers also partici-

'i -''~~QI~c~~

Bahamas Cq' Sunrise, the
country's only live television
morning show, featured top
executives of Baha Mar and
Sheraton Cable Beach on Mon-
day to highlight the re-flagging
of Radisson Cable Beach and
Golf Resort to Sheraton, a
brand of the Starwood Hotels
and Resorts.
Baha Mar Resorts Ltd.,
together with Starwood Hotels
and Resorts Worldwide Inc.,
marked the official opening of
the new Sheraton Cable Beach
Resort with a flag-raising cere-
Minister of Tourism and Avi-
ation Neko Grant was part of
this ceremony. The resort is
expected to play an instrumen-
tal role in boosting tourism in
Monday's Bahamas @Sunrise

the newly-refurbished Sheraton
Cable Beach Resort, where
senior executives discussed what
persons should expect from the
Additionally, there was a culi-
nary demonstration by Christo-
pher Chea, executive chef for
Don Robinson, president of
Baha Mar Resorts, described
the style of the Sheraton as
being one of "barefoot ele-
Half of the hotel has been
refurbished, which includes
about 350 rooms, the restau-
rants, the lobbies, the lounges
and pool and beach areas. He
said the east wing and the con-
vention centre are presently
being refurbished and the entire
hotel will be completed by
"It's intended to be a place
where guests will come, and
knowing the Sheraton's stan-
dards and the level of service
all around the world will expect
it will be repeated here in The
Bahamas," said Mr Robinson.
Mr Robinson explained that
Sheraton's staff had undergone
training where they were
instructed on service and stan-

dards, as well as how they wel-
come and greet guests. He said
the hotel's restaurants had been
going through test meals and
developing other menus.
Christopher Chea, who pre-
pared Gamberi di Amici (large
shrimp scampi), on Bahamas @
Sunrise, said the resort features
three major restaurants. They
are the Amici, an Italian restau-
rant, The Dolphin Restaurant,
and the Bimini Market, an
international buffet.
Chef Chea explained that, at
the Amici Restaurant, the cook-
ing is "simple, but very tasty."
At Bimini Market visitors can
choose cuisine from the grill sta-
tion; a flex station, where there
are stews, pasta and pizza; and
an oriental station for stir fry, or
Cantonese-style cooked foods.
"The Bimini Market and the
Dolphin Restaurant will feature
some Bahamian cuisine. At the
Dolphin Restaurant, there is
fresh conch salad made every
day, there are conch fritters,
cracked conch with peas and
rice, and conch chowder," said
Chef Chea.
Robert Sands, senior vice-
president government and
external affairs, Baha Mar and
Cable Beach Resorts, said that

99 per cent of staff employed
at the Sheraton are Bahami-
He said that, based on the
multiplier effect, Bahamians
throughout the Bahamas would
benefit from "the prosperity

"The fact that we have quali-
ty rooms on line means that the
destination will be in a position
to attract a significant number
of guests with discretionary

tainly, that is the fuel that gen-

this country," said Mr Sands.
Hans Altenhoff, general man-
ager of Sheraton Cable Beach.

ward to being a part of the

In a nation where obese
adults make up 60.4 per cent of
the population and one in every
four children is considered
severely overweight, City Mar-
ket joined 120 students in a cel-
ebration of success following
eight weeks of health transfor-
Since March 19, the 120 stu-
dents of Uriah McPhee Primary
School have been a part of the 8
Weeks to Wellness programme.
The children led their families
in practising proper eating
habits, exercising regularly and
building awareness of the
impact of lifestyle on choles-
terol and other health measures.
Students have also been
meeting weekly to get weighed
in, have their cholesterol
checked and participate in a
major exercise routine before
logging in their food and excise
achievements in a diary.
On Thursday, the children
and their families were recog-
nised in a graduation ceremony
at the school.
Bahamas Supermarkets Ltd.,
parent company of City Mar-
ket, partnered with Colinalm-
perial as platinum sponsors of
the programme titled: "Rais-
ing the Standard from Super-
Size Families to Super Healthy
"When the 8 Weeks to Well-
ness progrgmme was bought to
our attention we knew we had
to be a part of it," said Peter"
Goudie, human resources man-
ager of Bahamas Supermarkets.
"We used to say that it's better
in the Bahamas, but if you look
at our population, I'm sure
you'll agree that it is bigger in
the Bahamas.
"In the Forbes health section
earlier this year, I came across a
rather alarming statistic. It was
revealed that the Bahamas is
ranked 39 out of 194 in the most
obese populations worldwide.
That is not something we ought
to be proud of."
Goudie says he is heartbro-
ken when he sees mothers
handing their toddlers bottles

filled with soda or sugar-based
drinks instead of pure fruit
juice, milk or water. He said it's
even harder to watch families
sit with a heavy portion of
greasy chicken and fries then
wolf it down with a soda.
"I enjoy peas and rice and
macaroni and fried chicken just
as much as the other guy but
not all on the same plate,"
admitted Goudie.

"I have
learned to
choose a
lifestyle. I eat
more fruits,
drink more
water and
walk around
school ."

"Adults are for the most part
already set in their ways and it's
hard to teach them to eat right.
It's often said that the health of
the nation determines the
wealth of the nation. Today, as
I look at these successful grad-
uates, I am truly amazed at how
they not only implemented

these practices into their own
lifestyles but also convinced
their family members to join
them in a quest for a healthier
The results of the programme
were more than adequately
summed up by 10-year-old Jan-
nelle Curtis, who says that her
life has changed since joining
"I have learned to choose a
healthier lifestyle," said Curtis.
"I eat more fruits, drink more
water and walk around the
school four to five times a day
with my friends to make sure
we are all healthy. It's not about
us losing a couple of pounds -
it's about us living longer
healthier lives.
"I have my teachers and Dr
Hanna to thank for that. I also
thank City Market for our shirts
because it's now like our exer-
cise uniform. Me and my class-
mates are going to continue
being healthy in the summer by
eating right and even exercise
when commercials come on
during our favourite TV com-
The 8 Weeks to Wellness
programme is spearheaded by
the Adventist Health Profes-
sionals Association, is directed
by Idamae Hanna and involves
some 400 students in the fifth
grades at Uriah McPhee Pri-
mary, E P Roberts Primary and
two Seventh Day Adventist
church schools.

The PLP filed documents to
contest the election results in
Pinewood and Marco City, with
the expected filing of challenges
for Seabreeze, Golden Isles and
Blue Hills expected on Mon-
day, which is the deadline.
The court has the option of
leaving the constituency results
as they are; removing the votes
of ineligible voters who were
allowed to vote, and ordering a
recount which, potentially, can
change the winner.

"We have gone three months
now and I -think that's long
enough," he said.
Barrie Farrington, Atlantis'
senior vice-president of man-
agement, said at that time that
although "there are still some
challenges to overcome" Kerzn-

er International believed they
will "be brought to an amica-
ble conclusion."
Colebrooke estimated that
the pay issue may affect up to
40 per cent of all staff working
in the luxury 600-room tower.
He has suggested that reso-
lution of the matter should be of
utmost priority to the hotel, as
"a happy employee equals hap-

Government to assess

"So we are definitely going
to be addressing that issue. That
was a bad decision to remove
what we used to call a school
leaving certificate in my view,"
he said.
Mr Bethel said that he is still
in consultation with officials and
technical officers on the issue.
However, he stressed that
something had to be done so
that students would have some
record of their passage through
This, of course, would only
happen once they met some
minimum level.
"It's not that just because you
were there, you came and stand

up, and you passed that you're
going to get something," Mr
Bethel laughed.
Mr Bethel said the Ministry
of Education would be focus-
ing on raising the national exam
average, which currently stands
at a 'D'.
"The whole question of cur-
riculum needs to be looked at
very carefully going forward -
even if we try to fit in enhanced
vocational and vocational
aspects to the overall offering
in the public school system.
"So we have to look at how
we create an environment for
those students who may learn
differently and who are perhaps
more gifted with their hands
than academically," he said.

duly-elected government, but
they are not, and they will not
be. Not in this period," he said.
Mr Ferguson also said that
the PLP needs to shift focus to
its future, rather that dwelling
on the recent election loss.
"I think the nation has been
calling on them to stop what
they are doing and let's get on
with the running of the coun-
try. A lot of PLPs are now say-
ing that," he said.
He said many PLPs were dis-
gusted with the party's refusal
to accept the election results
and want to rebuild their organ-

court challenges will expand the

electorate, which is something
he has publicly expressed con-
cern about as was witnessed
by the taunting and jeering of
parliamentarians and their
spouses, by supporters of both
parties, at the opening of par-
But the opposition leader said
that his party had attempted to
guide its supporters to accept
their new role in opposition.
"We have tried our best to
get our people to understand
that the results of the election
are the results of the election.
That if there is a case in court,
or two cases in court, and there
is a legitimate basis for moving
forward with those cases, you
move forward with those cases.
But the government is the gov-
ernment and we accept that,"
he said.
In further response to critics
who suggest the PLP is not
"moving on" from the election,
Mr Christie used the recent
budget debate, in which the
opposition interrogated the gov-
ernment's proposals, as an
example of his party's commit-
ment to its constitutional oblig-
ations to constructively oppose
the Government.
"I think we all understand
our obligations to ensure that

the country does not suffer as a
result of either side seeking
their political rights and jus,
tice," Mr Christie said.
Though not being specific, Mr
Christie added that during the
party's post-election analysis of
the election results, they
became aware of "major occur-
rences of irregularities."
Wayne Munroe, one of the
party's lead attorneys, has said
publicly that thousands of non-
citzens may have voted and that
some Bahamians, who were
constitutionally entitled to vote,
may have been barred.
At the time, Mr Christie said,
the party did not know if these
irregularities were sufficient to
launch court challenges.
Consequently, legal advice
was sought by the party to
determine whether their con-
cerns were substantive enough
to launch official court chal-
lenges, and if so, in which con-
Having been advised by the
party's legal team that valid cas-
es existed, Mr Christie said that
he left it up to them to deter-
mine which cases were strong
enough to officially pursue. ,
As of yesterday, the PLP had
filled documents relating to the
Marco City and Pinewood elec-
tion results, with the expecta-
tion that documents will be filed
for three more seats -
Seabreeze, Blue Hills and Gold-
en Isles on Monday.

Opening lead two of clubs.
Assume you're in six hearts and
West leads a club. There are many
factors to consider before playing a
card from dummy.
You have 11 sure winners and
numerous chances for a 12th trick,
all depending on how the adverse
cards are divided. You could try a
club or spade finesse, or even a dia-
mond finesse, or you could try to
establish dummy's diamonds.
You can't safely test all these pos-
sibilities, so you must decide at trick
one which line of play to adopt.
The best way to start is by play-
ing a low club from dummy. This

relinquishes the possibility of imme-
diately winning the trick with the
queen, but there are excellent reasons
for rejecting the finesse.
First, West may have led from J-8-
6-2, in which case East might play
the king instead of the ten, handing
you your 12th trick immediately.
Then, too, West might have led low
from the J-10-x-x of clubs, which
will again establish dummy's queen
as a trick after East takes the king.
But the most compelling reason
for playing low is that you retain an
extra entry to dummy that might
come in handy later on. If you were
to finesse the queen, you would lose
this advantage after East won and
returned a club, dislodging dummy's
East wins the first trick with the
jack and returns a spade. Again you
decline the finesse, which offers only
a 50 percent chance. Instead, thanks
to your duck at trick one, you can
now play for a 3-3 or 4-2 diamond
division (an 84 percent chance).
After taking the spade, you cash
the queen of hearts and A-K of dia-
monds. You then ruff a diamond
high, lead a trump to the king and
ruff another diamond, establishing
the jack as a trick. After you draw
West's last trump, your carefully pre-
served ace-of-clubs entry permits
you to discard your spade loser on
the jack of diamonds, and the slam is

ARIES Mar 21/Apr 20
You have R&R on the brain, but you
have to buckle down and get through
another grueling week at work,
Aries. There will be reward enough
for a job well done.
TAURUS Apr 21/May 21
It may feel like everyone is out to get
you this week, Taurus. But it is all just
your imagination. Just focus on the
task at hand and these next few days.
are gdtng to sail by.
GEMINI May 22/Jun 21
Wishing for a change in your
finances will get you nowhere,
Gemini. You have to put a plan in
action to make the changes you
desire. Leo can help with the task.
CANCER Jun 22/Jul 22
Focus on family for the next few
days, Cancer. Afterward, you'll have
some time to devote to yourself.
There are big changes on the horizon,
so enjoy the downtime now.
LEO Jul 23/Aug 23
Hold your head high when you pre-
sent a proposal to your supervisor,
Leo. Your ideas have merit and they
should be taken seriously. Surprises
are in store on Thursday.
VIRGO Aug 24/Sept 22
Make the most of the time spent with
your spouse or romantic partner,
Virgo. The hours will become fleeting
when a work project springs up unex-
pectedly midweek.
LIBRA Sept 23/Oct 23
You'll have trouble focusing on any-
thing this week, Libra. No matter
how hard you try to devote your
attention to one task, you'll end up
working on multiple projects.
SCORPIO Oct 24/Nov 22
Rather than going on the defensive
with a coworker, Scorpio, sit down
and talk to the person about what's
bothering you. It may or may not
work, but at least you'll have tried.
Now is not the time to make a major
life decision because your head is
just not into it, Sagittarius. Put off
heavy thinking for another few days
and skate through this week.
CAPRICORN Dec 22/Jan 20
No matter how hard you try,
Capricorn, you can't get everyone to
like you just accept it. Instead of
trying to win everyone over, spend
your energy on the friends you have.
AQUARIUS Jan 21/Feb 18
There is trouble brewing at home,
but you won't be able to figure out
what's up unless you confront those
you live with. Don't clam up and
avoid confrontation.
PISCES Feb 19/Mar 20
It'll take a lot of effort to get through .
the week, Pisces, because things will
be a struggle for you. Relief comes
when Virgo enters the picture.

Jon Blackburn (South Wales) v
Bernd Rechel (Wood Green), UK
4NCL league 2007. Wood
Green's club rooms are close to
White Hart Lane, but its team
used to be the Chelsea of British
chess, hiring world class
grandmasters to demolish rival
squads. The zenith came at the
end of the 2005-6 season when
the all-time number one
woman, Judith Polgar, was
flown from Budapest for the
decisive match against
championship rivals Guildford-
ADC. Then WG's major sponsor
cut back support, so that in the
season just ended Guildford
triumphed easily while the north
Londoners struggled against
relegation. There were still one
or two hired hands, though
Germany's Rechel is a modest

master rather than an elite GM.
Here as Black (to move) Rechel is
two pawns down but has White's
e3 knight caught in an awkward
pin. How did Black force victory?
