Minister makes

announcement

over counterfeit

product


* By BRENT DEAN
Tribune Staff Reporter
A NATIONWIDE volun-
tary recall has been ordered
of counterfeit Colgate tooth-
paste allegedly manufactured
in South Africa that contains
an anti-freeze ingredient.
Minister of Lands and Local
Government Sidney Collie,
who has responsibility for con-
sumer affairs, made the
announcement yesterday after
a Tribune story reported that
the product was being sold in
New Providence.
The counterfeit product has
made worldwide headlines as
one type contains Diethylene
glycol, which is an ingredient
in anti-freeze, and the other
has been found in Canada to
contain harmful bacterial lev-
els.
Here in the Bahamas, Mr
Collie said, samples of the
toothpaste containing the anti-
freeze ingredient, were found
in the Price Buster retail chain
on sale for $1.99 two of
which he displayed for the
public.
"Any toothpaste on any
food store, or any store shelf
found to be manufactured in
South Africa, we are asking
the merchants and the store
owners to voluntarily pull
them," he said.


Mr Collie emphasized that
the ministry is asking mer-
chants to remove the items
from selves "immediately",
and if this is not done, the gov-
ernment will use its authority
to seize and remove these
products.
"We will be following up
(today)," Mr Collie said.
A consumer provided The
Tribune with a tube of the
counterfeit toothpaste he
claims to have bought in the
Robin Hood retail store.
The minister and his senior
officials confirmed that they
checked the location to deter-
mine whether or not the prod-
uct was being sold there. How-
ever at the time of their check,
none of the toothpaste was
found, officials said, indicat-
ing that it may have been
removed when the store was
alerted about the problem.
Mr Collie also said that no
samples of the toothpaste con-
taining harmful bacterial levels
have been found thus far.
"We are continuing our
checks with the customs
department to ensure that that
is in fact so, and also to keep
an eye out to intercept any
suspected toothpaste at the
borders," he said.

GREED played a
major part in the reason
why the price for the con-
struction of the new straw
market ballooned from
$10 million to over $20
million, former minister
in charge of the construc-
tion of the edifice, Leslie
Miller said yesterday on
More 94's Real Talk Live
hosted by Jeff Lloyd.
Mr Miller, responding
to assertions made by
architect for the new straw
market Michael Foster,
claimed that the straw
market could have been
constructed two years ago
had it not been for the
"hefty" price tag.
Mr Foster dismissed Mr
Miller's assertions as
"absolute foolishness".
He said that his fee for
his services was 40 per
cent lower than all of the
rest.
"The $10 million he
made reference to was a
sum that was put in the
budget and other esti-
mates suggested other-

Prison sentence is upheld for
indecent assault during 'sex therapy'


* By NATARIO McKENZIE
THE Court of Appeal yes-
terday upheld a one year
prison sentence handed down
on a local "physician" for inde-
cently assaulting a woman to
whom he had supposedly
administered sex therapy.
Dr Kevin King's appeal
against a one year prison sen-
tence was dismissed by the
Court of Appeal yesterday.
That sentence which was over
a 2002 conviction for inde-


cently assaulting a female
patient was upheld in a judg-
ment handed down by Court
of Appeal President Dame
Joan Sawyer yesterday. It was
noted that his prison sentence
had been suspended pending'
the prosecution of his direct
appeal to the Court of Appeal.
King was informed by Justice
Sawyer that he now has to
serve a year in jail.

Barbados PM: Bahamas could be integrated
into CARICOM programme rather than CSME
* By KARIN HERIG
Tribune Staff Reporter
INSTEAD of joining the Caribbean Single Market and Econ-
omy (CSME) the Bahamas could in future be integrated into a
CARICOM programme that focuses more on issues such as
health care and education rather than on economic benefits.
CARICOM chairman, Barbados prime minister Owen Arthur,
speaking about the issue of CSME during this week's heads of
government conference in Georgetown, expressed concern over
the fact that some members of the Caribbean Community are not
participating in the region's single market.
As a. solution to this concern, Mr Arthur said, he is recom-
mending "a programme of integration outside and beyond the-
mere economic sphere."

Ministry cites
the Bahamas'
proximity to
US as tourism
advantage
THE proximity and afford-
ability of the Bahamas still
makes it a likely tourist desti-
natioanfor American visitors,
according to the Ministry of
Tourism.
This follows media reports
that the Bahamas has dropped
off a list of the top 15 countries
that Americans would choose
to vacation "if money were no
object."
In a statement issued yester-
day, the ministry stated that
"The Bahamas' comparative
advantage has been and
remains the country's proximity
to the United States which
makes the islands of the
Bahamas highly accessible to
major US cities".
This is an important factor as
this proximity makes it conve-
nient for Americans to visit the
country. The cities along the
eastern coast of the US makes
up 60-65 per cent of visitors to
the Bahamas.
These eastern cities such as
New York and South Florida

PMH announces programme to clean



up areas after publication of photos


* By TANEKA THOMPSON
HOSPITAL officials claim
there is an "ongoing programme
for the rehabilitation of areas"
which are below standard at
Princess Margaret Hospital.
Yesterday, The Tribune was
the first to publish photos that
exposed the unsanitary and
dilapidated conditions at the
public ward of the government
funded Princess Margaret Hos-
pital (PMH).
Responding to this, hospital
officials said that it is a "very
high priority" to get conditions
at the hospital up to scratch.
During the 2007/2008 budget
debate, Minister of Health and
Social Development, Dr Hubert
Minnis stated that a total of
$170,546,945 was allocated to


Hospital making ongoing:

efforts, says administrator


the Public Hospitals Authority
including the corporate office,
Princess Margaret Hospital,
Sandilands Rehabilitation Cen-
tre and Grand Bahama Health
Services.
Coralie Adderley, Chief Hos-
pital Administrator at PMH,
claims that one of the photos
represent hospital conditions in
2005 that were corrected dur-
ing previous renovations within
the building.
She further claimed that it is
"difficult to ascertain" exactly
which ward and bathrooms of


the 405-bed facility were shown
in the remaining pictures, but
assured the public that "what
has not been addressed in terms
of physical upkeep is being
addressed".
"You can appreciate that
with a building this size and this
old, we are always faced with
areas that need work. Some
areas have had extensive reno-
vations, some minor, and in this
budget year we have new areas
up for renovation. But we will
look to see if there is anything
thai could have possibly been
overlooked within that project."
When asked about possible
risk of-infection due to unsani-
tary hospital conditions, Adder-
ley responded that the hospi-
tal's standards for infection con-
trol and maintaining cleanliness
are always being reviewed and-
upgraded, with efforts in place


to ensure that hospital staff
adheres to them.
In response to claims of mal-
treatment and neglect of
patients at PMH, Adderley
advised, the public to contact
the administrative staff at the
hospital with any concerns.
"Anytime a member of the pub-


lic has a complaint regarding
attitude or service of staff we
welcome them to bring it to the
attention of the management
team.
"With 1,900 employees there
may be an instance where a
member of staff may not pro-
vide the level of service that we


expect from everyone, but be
assured of the commitment of
the staff of PMH to provide the
best care possible with the
resources we have," she said.
Administrators at Princess
Margaret Hospital revealed to
The Tribune that they have
"specific initiatives" in place to
open the doors of communica-
tion with the public. "In very
short order we will be formally
announcing some initiatives
where the public will have an
easier opportunity to share with
us their concerns," Mrs Adder-
ley stated, adding that under
the new initiatives, concerns
would be addressed in a timely
and efficient manner.
Last month, Minister of
Health Dr Minnis told parlia-
ment that redevelopment of the
"critical deficiencies" of
Princess Margaret Hospital
would be "accelerated" in an
effort to improve the public
health care system. Several
attempts were made to contact
the minister, but up to press
time he could not be reached
for comment.


PMH acknowledges patient's complaint


* By JEFFARAH GIBSON
PRINCESS Margaret Hospi-
tal has acknowledged the com-,
plaint lodged by patient Kim-
berly Brown, who, alleged ill.
treatment and neglect after suf-
fering severe-burns as a result of:
a faulty hospital bed. :
Mrs Brown told The Tribune
on Monday that after a faulty
bed she was placed in by hospi-
tal staff collapsed upsetting a
cup of extremely hot tea -. she
suffered first and second degrees
burns on her neck and chest.
She claims that she was then
ignored and did not receive the
treatment she needed in a time-
ly fashion.
,.The incident occurred just'
hours after she gave birth to
twins by caesarian section. She
said that what makes the situa-


tion even worse is that her
injuries have left her unable to
breast feed her children.
As a patient, especially one
in the private ward, Mrs Brown
said she should have been given
great care and attention follow-
ing the incident, which she said
should have been treated as an
emergency situation.
Mrs Brown claims that some
of the staff at the hospital
seemed much more interested
in trying to figure out exactly
what happened than taking care
of her and making sure that she
was not seriously hurt.
She said that the few doctors
and nurses who did help her
deserve special praise, but that
the others were "churlish" and
failed to come to her aid.
Mrs'Brown claims that some
nurses even rolled their eyes when


she told them of her distress.
She and her husband, Arthur
Brown, said they complained to
a nurse, who said that a repre-
sentative of the administration
would come to speak to them,
however no one ever showed up.
They theii asked to see the
transcript of an oral complaint
they had dictated about the inci-
dent, but the staff refused to
show it to them.
Mrs Brown also commented
on what she said were the dis-
turbing physical conditions of
the room in which she stayed,
which included fungus growing
on the floors, dilapidated beds,
and broken faucets.
She also claimed that the
room in which she stayed was
mopped only once for the entire
four days she was there.
Mrs Brown said the environ-


ment was unhealthy for anyone
- but especially for someone
who had just given birth and-
was suffering from burns.
Yesterday, Princess Margaret
Hospital issued a statement
acknowledging the complaint
regarding Mrs Brown's injuries.
Coralie Adderly, the Chief
Hospital Administrator, stated
that a "comprehensive investi-
gation is underway to determine
the underlying factors attrib-
uted to this unfortunate experi-
ence at our faculty.
We apologise to Mrs Brown
and her family and will make
every effort to ensure her full
recovery".
Mrs Adderly assured the pub-
lic that she and her staff are
committed to providing the best
quality care to all patients at
Princess Margaret Hospital.

Man faces
charge of
ammunition
possession

* By DENISE MAYCOCK
Tribune Freeport Reporter
FREEPORT A male resi-
dent of Freeport was charged
with possession of ammunition
in Freeport Magistrate's Court
on Wednesday.
Renaldo Jevan Rolle, 23, of
176 Northumberland Avenue
in North Bahamia, appeared
before Acting Deputy Chief
Magistrate Helen Jones.
It is alleged that on July 4, at
about 12.30am, the accused was
found in possession of six live
.38 bullets.
Simeon Brown represented
Rolle, who pleaded not guilty
to the charge of possession of
ammunition without lawful
authorisation. He was granted
$4,000 bail with one surety.
Magistrate Jones adjourned
the matter to March 4, 2008.


Coast Guard
still looking
for woman
missing at sea

THE US Coast Guard yes-
terday continued its search for a
42-year-old American woman
who fell of a yacht about 35
miles off of Grand Bahama.
According to authorities, the
woman a native of Fort Laud-
erdale went missing from the
49-foot sport fisher vessel Do
Diligence on Tuesday afternoon
when the vessel was sailing close
to the southern coast of
Freeport.
Passengers on the yacht
reportedly last saw the woman
at around 4.30pm on Tuesday.
Following the discovery, the
Do Diligence yacht contacted
a nearby boat which alerted the
Coast Guard at 6pm.
The yacht's crew placed an
emergency beacon in the water
by the spot where the woman
might have fallen overboard.
A Coast Guard cutter and a
helicopter searched the area.
The woman was not wearing
a life jacket at the time she went
missing.
Coast Guard officials said
they will not release the name
of the woman until her family is
notified of the situation.

Administrators
attend seminar
on disaster
management
FAMILY island administra-
tors were among those who
attended a four-day seminar
aimed at strengthening the
Bahamas' disaster management
capabilities this week.
The 2007 National Disaster
Management Conference cov-
ered such topics as disaster pre-
paredness and response, shelter
operations, influenza pandem-
ic and Bahamas building codes.
it was partially funded the
United States government,
through the US Southern com-
mand.
Minister of Lands and Local
Government, Sidney Collie,
spoke at the event, representing
Prime Minister Hubert Ingra-
ham, who has ministerial respon-
sibility for disaster management.
"Recent findings of the Inter-
governmental Panel on Climate
Change (IPCC) provide an
alarming picture for the future,"
said Mr Collie. "Temperatures
are increasing globally. If there
is indeed a link between climate
change and a rise in weather-
related disasters, natural disas-
ters are not only here to stay,
but on the rise," he said.
Mr Collie emphasised that
hazards facing the Bahamas
come in forms other than tropi-
cal cyclones, "and the task of
preparing for disasters and mit-
igating the risk to lives and prop-
erty is about more than stock-
piling supplies in strategic loca-
tions or designating shelters."
He said in addition to address-


ing cyclones, Bahamians must
also consider the risk of disas-
ters. triggered by environmental
,or technological incidents, such
as forest fires, chemical and oil
spills, and the threat of an avian
flu and pandemic flu.
"Addressing the complexities
of disasters and ending the
cyclones of vulnerabilities neces-
sitate an integrated approach to
disaster management that would
include disaster planning and
preparedness, risk reduction and
sustained assistance for post-dis-
aster recovery and reconstruc-
tion," said the minister.


Inspectors


oison


toothpaste on Grand Bahama


* By DENISE MAYCOCK
Tribune Freeport Reporter

FREEPORT The Depart-
ment of Consumer Affairs in
Freeport is conducting inspec-
tions at supermarkets and con-
venience stores to ensure that
tainted toothpaste is not in cir-
culation in Grand Bahama.
Philip Stubbs, chief price
inspector in Freeport, said his
officers are out on the streets in
full force inspecting toothpaste
inventory at the major food-
stores and smaller convenience
stores throughout the island.
"We are trying as best we
can to inspect the stores, but
we will not be able to check
all of the stores in one day,"
said Mr Stubbs.
There have been concerns
that fake toothpaste is being
sold in stores in the Bahamas.
It is believed that poisonous
chemicals such as diethylene
glycol found in anti-freeze, or
harmful bacteria, are con-
tained in counterfeit colgate
toothpaste.
It has also been claimed that
a tube of toothpaste, which
bears some of the counterfeit
traits that have been identified
by Colgate-Palmolive, has sur-
faced in Nassau.
So far, none of the tainted
toothpaste has been discov-
ered on store shelves in Grand
Bahama.


as misspellings on,the carton,
including 'isclinically', 'SOUTI I
AFRLCA' and South African
I ental Assoxiation.'
The labelling information
pertaining to the product size
is also incorrect. The fake tooth-
paste is labelled as a five ounce
or 100thl tube, a size not made
or sold by Colgate in the US.
They can also identify the


* TAINTED toothpaste has made its way to Bahamian stores


Nevertheless, store owners
in Freeport are keeping a close
eye out for the fake tooth-
paste, which is believed to
have originated in China.
James Williams, manager of
the Winn Dixie Foodstore in
downtown Freeport, said Con-
sumer Affairs officials con-
tacted the store on Wednes-
day to inform them of the sit-
uation check their toothpaste
inventory.
'We are checking our inven-
tory right now as we speak to
make sure.we do not have any
of the fake toothpaste.
"While we carry .the Colgate
brand, we are pretty sure that
our toothpaste products are
safe because our suppliers are
not the same as the supplier
where the fake versions were


hoto: Tim Clarke/Tribune staff)

distributed from," said Mr
Williams.
Shawnya Ramsey of
Krosstown Convenience Store
said that the store has not yet
checked its inventory.
She said she heard some-
thing about the problem, but
was not sure of what to look
for when identifying the coun-
terfeit toothpaste. She was
then referred to relevant arti-
cles published in The Tribune.
which is sold at the conve
nience store.
"We carry Colgate, and after
reading the articles I am going
to check our store inventory
and stocks for the counterfeit
product,' she said.
Storeowners and residents
can also identify the fake tubes
by several characteristics, such


Bird deaths 'may be natural'


* By TANEKA THOMPSON

NATURAL selection may
be behind mysterious bird
deaths in Grand Bahama,
according to experts.
The Tribune reported yes-
terday that a number of mys-
terious bird deaths have
occurred off the southeastern
coast of that island in the past
few weeks.
According to David Lee, a
curator of birds at North Car-
olina State Museum of Natural
Sciences and a former biologist,
mass bird deaths are "actually a
rather well known biological
event". And he has a few theo-
ries about the cause behind this
particular bout of bird deaths,
which is taking place off the
coast of Florida as well.
These include the theory
that adult birds may be aban-


doing their young too early,
leaving the offspring not fully
equipped for survival.
This theory purports when
there is an absence of winds
in the tropics, the inexperi-
enced young shearwater gulls
cannot fly, and because of
the "low productivity of the
oxygen starved tropical
waters" they are unable to
find food.
"By the time they make'it,
into the northern hemisphere,
they are starved and exhaust
ed. In these years we see high _
mortality," Mr Lee said.
He does not believe the
deaths are "disease or chemi-
cal related", but simply attrib-
uted to nature's principal of
"survival of the fittest".
Director of the Ministry of
Agriculture and Fisheries, Sime-
on Pinder, told The Tribune on


Wednesday that he has "no
idea" what happened to the
great shearwaters, but revealed
that initial suspicions of bird flu
have been eliminated.
"It may take quite some
time for the best laboratories
to determine the actual cause
[of the deaths]," he added.
Until the final reports are
released from the lab in the
US, Pinder speculated that
possible toxins may be one
reason for the bird deaths.
Eric Carey, executive direc-
tor of the Bahamas National
Trust; told The Tribune on
yesterday that his organisation
is investigating the unex-
plained bird deaths, but added
that the situation is not uncom-
mon.
"We have reports that it
[mass bird deaths] occurs every
few years." Mr Carey stated.

PAGE 4, THURSDAY, JUYT5,2007 THE TRIBUN
3 **' S-dim


IN A PRESS statement yesterday Tourism
Minister Neko Grant denied former transport
minister Glenys Hanna-Martin's claim that
he was seeking "cheap political gain" for
telling the Bahamian people that the PLP gov-
ernment had known three years ago that cruise
ships would pull out of the Bahamas if Prince
George dock were not lengthened and the
harbour dredged.
Mr Grant replied that his ministry takes
"very seriously" its responsibility to the
"Bahamian public to provide information that
is truthful, complete and necessary to help
establish broad public understanding of issues
of critical national importance."
This was something that Mrs. Martin's gov-
ernment did not do when in 2004 it received its
first letter from Royal Caribbean Cruise Lines,
followed by a second letter in 2005, informing
it that the dredging of Nassau harbour was
"imperative" if its service was to continue to
the Bahamas. Caribbean Cruise Line told gov-
ernment that the harbour's turning basis was
too small for its larger "Freedom Fleet" ves-
sels, which were to enter service this year.
This was the reason given for pulling four
ships from the Bahamas and transferring them
to Europe, South America and Alaska.
Mr Grant in the House, followed by Mr
Dion Foulkes in the Senate, pointed out that
not only did the PLP government not tell the
Bahamian people the difficulty the harbour
was presenting for the country's continued
cruise business, but it did nothing to avert the
danger.
Mr Foulkes said his information was that
even if the harbour were dredged now, there
was no hope of Caribbean Cruise liners return-
ing before 2009 because all cruises were
booked until then.
Mr Foulkes also revealed that the Cunard
company offered to dredge the harbour at its
own expense to accommodate the Queen
Mary 2, the largest passenger liner built.
Bahamians were never told of this offer, nor is
it yet known why it was not gratefully accept-
ed by the PLP government. As a consequence
the Queen Mary 2 cannot include the
Bahamas in its itinerary.
On June 25, flanked by former ministerial
colleagues and former prime minister Perry
Christie, who during his election campaign
had assured Bahamians that their tourism
industry was holding strong, Mrs Martin held
a press conference in the opposition commit-
tee room of the House of Assembly. She chas-
tised Mr Grant for either not knowing the
facts or deliberately misleading the public "for
cheap political gain." Either way, she said, his


"assertions were false... and irresponsible."
She regretted that Royal Caribbean had
been drawn into a "domestic political row"
by the minister whom she accused of "using it
to create political mischief, or to generate mis-
conceptions and innuendoes, or to perpetuate
dishonesty for partisan political reasons."
After all that vitriolic hot air we thought
that if in fact Minister Grant were lying, this
was her opportunity to tell the public the truth.
Not a bit of it. All the public learned was that
the "former government" the FNM had
been planning and preparing for such a dredg-
ing for more than two years. If this were so,
the PLP's inaction was even more unforgivable
- five whole years of doing nothing. Why
didn't the PLP government execute the FNM
plans, especially as they had been warned in
writing by a major cruise company what would
happen if they didn't?
Then there is the case of the TG Glover
school. When Public Works Minister Earl
Deveaux announced that construction at the
school had stopped until his government could
investigate claims that the site was contami-
nated, former works minister Bradley Roberts
lashed out. He accused the FNM government
of trying to "demonise the Christie adminis-
tration", claiming that there was "not a shred
of evidence to support" the FNM's "outra-
geous allegations."
He said that the rash that workers com-
plained of was a case of "monkey tamarind",
it had been cleared up and government should
either produce evidence that the site was con-
taminated or allow the work to continue.
It this were true, and there.was nothing to
fear on the site, why would the contractor,
write to the new government a day after it
was sworn in to complain that for the previous
four months his workers had been ill. It asked
the new government to fully inspect the site
and inform his firm of its findings. Obviously
ER Hanna Construction Company was not
satisfied with Mr Roberts' "monkey tamarind"
story.
As Mr Deveaux pointed out it would have
been irresponsible for his government to have
ignored the request, because if the site were in
fact contaminated it threatened the health of
too many Bahamian children. And so the site
was closed to await a toxicology report.
These two incidents alone are enough to
demonstrate that the Christie government was
not capable of leading .this country. As one
economist remarked recently: If the Bahami-
an economy had not been so robust,
the Christie government would have wrecked
it.

PLP not levelling with the public


EDITOR, The Tribune.
PLEASE allow me to
respond to an article that
appeared in one of the news-
papers a couple of weeks
ago. The article stated that
"Prime Minister Hubert
Ingraham has promised to
review recently implemented
catch limits which he said are
too stringent". It is my sin-
cere hope that the reporter
misquoted the Prime Minis-
ter. How, after two weeks in
office, would the Prime Min-
ister be able to come to this
conclusion? It is my under-
standing that scientists, Gov-
ernment technical officers
and environmental NGOs in
The Bahamas and globally
support more stringent catch
limits, such as are currently
in effect, to reduce the
tremendous threats to fish-
ery stocks in The Bahamas.
The Bahamas is the only
country in the region that
still has viable stocks of
conch, crawfish and several
other important species.
Stocks in other countries of
the region and indeed glob-
ally have crashed due to the
pressures put on them by
overfishing and pollution.
Are we going to follow the
crowd like lemmings or actu-
ally be proactive in our
approach to management of
our fishery stocks with pro-
gressive catch limits. In a
country where poaching and
pollution already threaten
species important to the eco-
noniic well-being of many
Bahatian families as well as
their health, stringent is
good.
As for the statements of
Mr Loran Pyfrom, is he a
fishery scientist? Persons go
around making these gener-
al statements with no
research, facts or authority
to back them up. There was
a problem with the old rules,
they were too liberal. Allow-
ing foreign yachters to come
in and take the large quanti-
ties that they could under
the previous rules is UNAC-
CEPTABLE.
If there is a problem with
enforcement, then let's
address the problem and
give the Department of
Marine Resources and the
Royal Bahamas Defence
Force the manpower and
tools to enforce the law. It is
pointless, absolutely point-
"less, to enact laws and regu-


nations if we are not going
to put in place the mecha-
nisms for them to be
enforced.
Let's just do the math. If a
sportfishing vessel comes to
The Bahamas with four men
on board, under the old rules
they could each catch six
crawfish, 20 pounds of
groupers, snappers and the
like and six dolphin, tuna
and the like as well as conch.
For that one boat, that trans-
lates into 24 crawfish, 80
pounds of grouper and snap-
per, 24 dolphin and tuna as
well as conch. Let's just esti-
mate that we have 500 ves-
sels in The Bahamas every
year. If you multiply those
figures by 500, we lose
12,000 crawfish, 40,000
pounds of grouper and snap-
per, 12,000 dolphin and tuna
and only God knows how
much conch on an annual
basis.
Now one may argue there
is no way they take that
much, but the fact is with the
old rules, they can take that
much because the law allows
them to. With the new rules
the number is reduced to
3,000 crawfish, 10,000
pounds of grouper and snap-
per, 3,000 dolphin and tuna
and no conch. When you:
look at the figures, which
would Bahamians be more
comfortable with? We know
what the foreign sportfish-
ermen are comfortable with.
Mr Pyfrom and his col-
leagues are to be lauded for
raising monies to assist BAS-
RA, but he and many
Bahamians need to stop
being short-sighted. If there
are no fish to catch in 15 to
20 years, there will be NO
sportfishing tournaments
because these "frustrated"
foreign sportfishermen will
take their boats and their
huge disposable incomes
elsewhere.
When are we going to stop
putting our personal bene-
fits before the benefits of
this nation? Too many of us
are selfish in the way we
operate, unwilling to sacri-
fice for the common good.
We fail to recognize that
when we gain in the short

term for selfish reasons, it
comes back to haunt us and
we all suffer in the years to
come.
When are we going to stop
bending the rules because a
white foreigner complains?
They complained about the
yachting fees. They are still
coming. They will complain
about the catch limits, but
they will still come. Why?
Because there is nowhere
else to go. Everywhere else
in this region remotely close
to where they live has poor
or collapsed fishery stocks.
When are we going to
realise that what we have is
priceless? We can develop
this country in the best inter-
est of Bahamian people and
Bahamian natural resources
because the unique qualities
and healthy systems that
exist here are unparalleled
anywhere else. But we have
to keep it that way. We have
to protect them. We cannot
expect foreigners to look out
for our best interest. We
have to look out for our own
and stop cowtowing to every
complaint.
And while I may under-
stand the Prime Minister's
zeal to correct any wrongs
that may have been done by
the previous administration,
that shouldn't mean doing
away with everything they
put in place, especially deci-
sions that are good for this
country like more strin-
gent catch limits.
So I sincerely hope that
the Prime Minister, Mr
Pyfrom, Mr Cartwright and
all those thinking the limits
should be changed to
research the effort that went
behind establishing those
regulations, to understand
the tremendous long-term
benefits such limits will have
for Bahamian fishery stocks
and to make a wise decision
in consultation with appro-
priate experts.
The Bahamian people are
watching and listening and
we will not tolerate a deci-
sion that jeopardises our
well-being and that of our
children to assuage "frus-
trated" sportfishermen who
represent a miniscule per-
centage of the interest in this
matter.

Silence on housing probe


* By ALISON LOWE
Tribune Staff Reporter
A WALL of silence has
descended over the investiga-
tion into allegations of corrup-
tion at the Ministry of Housing
which began in November last
year.
Yesterday, Assistant Com-
missioner Ellison Greenslade
uncharacteristically refused to
comment on the investigation's
status, or elaborate on why that
might be.
Where usually Mr
Greenslade has either com-
mented, stated that investiga-
tions are too sensitive to remark
upon, or admitted that he is not
fully aware of the details of a
situation and referred The Tri-
bune to other police officers
who may be more up to speed,
yesterday Mr Greenslade sim-
ply said "no comment."
"I can't comment on it, I'm
very sorry, I can't say anything
on that at the moment," he said.
When asked to explain why
that is the case, considering his
usual method of handling
inquiries, Mr Greenslade con-
tinued: "No no, I just have no
comment at the moment. "
Pushed on whether this was
because there were no new
developments, he added: "No,
with the greatest respect I just
have no comment. I don't know
what else to say, I just have no
comment."
This follows statements made
at a conference in April, short-
ly after Mr Greenslade took on
the crime portfolio, in which he
said that he hoped to "respond
very soon" to queries as to the
outcome of the Ministry of
Housing investigation.
"I will be looking at that file
today and certainly will be dis-
cussing it with detectives at the
top end," he said at that time.
Yesterday, Commissioner of
Police Paul Farquharson also
declined to speak with The Tri-
bune about the matter, refer-

He suggested that police offi-

scuppered in taking the investi-
gation to its conclusion under
the weight of political influence.
Consequently, he said he felt

Yesterday, the new minister

report on the now eight-month-
old investigation, and has had
no communications with the
police about the matter.


"Now you've reminded me,
I'll find out," said Mr Russell.
The police investigation
began after The Tribune print-

Bright and highly motivated
accounting majors in the Col-
lege of the Bahamas School
of Business can look forward
to financial assistance over the
next five years, courtesy of an
annual $10,000 scholarship
award donated by the
Bahamas Institute of Char-
tered Accountants (BICA).
The award will fund two
outstanding students in their
third or fourth year of study
and is named "The BICA
Scholarship of Excellence".
The first recipient is D'An-
dra Letitia Greenslade who is
about to enter her third year.
A graduate of Bahamas Acad-
emy, Miss Greenslade holds
eight BGCSE passes and has
been on the President's List,
an honours list which requires
a GPA of above 3.5, since she
enrolled at the college.
Kendrick Christie, presi-
dent of BICA, expressed the
institute's pleasure in donat-


ing the scholarship and his
desire to assist the college in
its endeavours to contribute
to the world of accounting in
the Bahamas.
Mary Russell, assistant
director of financial aid at the
college, said how happy she
was that the institute had
decided to make this gener-
ous donation.
Chair of the School of Busi-
ness at the college, Remelda
Moxey, said how gratifying it
was to see college alumni so
tangibly involved in giving
back to their alma mater.
Lawrence Lewis, a council
member of BICA; Theofanis

tary of BICA and Kendrick
Christie, president of the
BICA, all studied at the col-
lege on their way to accoun-
tancy qualifications.
Earlier this year BICA also

Taiwan's VP
launches
tour of Latin
American
m DOMINICAN REPUBLIC
Santo Domingo
TAIWAN'S vice president
kicked off a Latin American
tour Wednesday in the Domini-
can Republic, an ally rapidly
increasing its economic and
political ties with the island's
diplomatic rival, China, accord-
ing to Associated Press.
Vice President Annette Lu's
three-country trip aims to
counter a Chinese push that
bore fruit last month in Costa
Rica, where the government
announced it was switching its
diplomatic recognition to Bei-
jing in hopes of attracting more
trade with China.
Taiwan and communist China
split amid civil war in 1949. Chi-
na refuses to hav6 diplomatic
ties with nations that recognize
Taiwan, which Beijing regards
as a renegade province it plans
to eventually unify with the
mainland.
Costa Rica's defection left
Taiwan with only 24 diplomatic
partners many of them poor
countries in Latin America and
the Caribbean.
China has also been courting
Latin American leaders in a bid
to win their support and weak-
en Taiwan's claims of interna-
tional legitimacy.
The Dominican Republic has
been playing both sides of the
political divide, developing
extensive ties with Taiwan and
China without making any long-
term commitments in their feud.
It has pledged to maintain
official relations with Taiwan
through at least 2008, but For-
eign Minister Carlos Morales
Troncoso told a television pro-
gram in April 2006 that it could
also establish diplomatic rela-
tions with Beijing if it were in
the country's best interest.
Taiwan is helping to build an
information technology campus
on the outskirts of Santo
Domingo, while a Chinese com-
pany is slated to: build a much-
needed coal power plant in the
Caribbean country's northwest.

Organisation hoping to expose which

companies profited from slave trade


* By ALISON LOWE
Tribune Staff Reporter
AN international organisa-
tion is doing research in the
Caribbean which may bring
descendents of slaves closer to
being compensated for the trau-
ma and indignity their ances-
tors suffered, according to the
BBC.
The Global Afrikan Congress
- a charity which represents the
interests of people from the
African diaspora is seeking to
establish which British compa-
nies were operating in the
region during the slave trade,
and therefore benefited from it,
and what became of them fol-
lowing its abolition 200 years
ago.
After the abolition, many
companies received financial
compensation for their loss of
earnings from the British gov-
ernment, while slaves and their
descendents have so far
received nothing.
The GAC hopes their
detailed investigations will ulti-
mately expose which companies


profited from the trade and help
the organisation in putting a
case to the British government
that reparations should be paid
to the descendants of slaves still
alive today.
The GAC intends to discuss
the issue with Caribbean gov-
ernment leaders and other
international NGOs before tak-
ing the case for reparations to
the new British Prime Minister,
Gordon Brown, said the BBC.
Cikia Thompson, chair of the
organisation said: "The fami-
lies, companies and govern-
ments which were involved in
the slave trade should be held
responsible.
"All African people through-
out the world including those
in the Americas whose ances-
tors were victims of this crime
against humanity should be paid
compensation."
Robert Beckford, a reader in
theology at Oxford Brookes
University in the UK, told BBC
Caribbean he welcomed the
move.
"People have become a lot
more aware of how much the

The roots of out glorious




parliamentary democracy


T HOSE who
had the time
to watch on television
last week the transi-
tion of power from
one prime minister to
another in Britain
would have been
greatly rewarded by
the experience.
It was instructive to
watch this seamless
process in one of the
world's great democ-
racies and the former
imperial power from
which we inherited
our system of parlia-
mentary democracy.
Among those coun-
tries in the world that
can be described as
democracies, about 60
have chosen to be par-
liamentary democra-
cies with Iceland being
the oldest and India
the biggest. Some are
unicameral.
Nearly all of the for-
mer colonial territo-
ries in the Caribbean
chose to be parlia-
mentary democracies,
including Trinidad
and Tobago and
Dominica which are
republics. Guyana is
the exception.
There is obviously a
consensus among them
that this system is to
be preferred over the
presidential republic in which
great power is vested in a direct-
ly-elected head of government
who is also head of state.


The United States is per-
haps the best example
of a successful presidential
republic, but in Latin America,
Africa and Asia the presiden-
tial republic has too often been
synonymous with dictatorship.
A few democracies have a
hybrid system in which there
are elements of both the presi-
dential and parliamentary mod-
els.
France adopted such a hybrid
system after a proliferation of
political parties and consequent.
instability brought about the
collapse of the post-war Fourth
Republic. Charles de Gaulle
wrote the constitution for the
Fifth Republic and became its
first president.
The British system, common-
ly referred to as Westminster
because of the palace in which
both houses of parliament meet,
evolved out of many centuries
of sometime violent struggle
between the monarchy, the
nobility and the commoners.
The British are still trying to
come to terms with the vestiges
of hereditary political office as
represented in the House of
Lords. The genius of the sys-
tem lies in its flexibility and
powerful conventions together
with the marriage of two oppos-
ing political ideas, hereditary
and elected office.
The hereditary monarch no
longer has power in Britain but
is still the symbol of national sta-
bility and unity in what is a very
healthy modern democracy.
The monarch's discretion in
appointing prime ministers has
all but disappeared as the major
political parties have now devel-
oped rules for the selection of
their leaders.
The monarch is still supposed
"to advise, to warn, to guide"
prime ministers but, as com-
mentators pointed out last
week, it is not likely that a very
young Queen Elizabeth II had
any words of advice for the old
war horse she met in office.
More likely Sir Winston
Churchill lectured her on what
was expected of a British
monarch. Counting from Sir
Winston, Gordon Brown last
week became the eleventh
prime minister of Elizabeth's
reign.

T he story of Tony Blair
and Gordon Brown is a
fascinating chapter in recent
British political history. It is said

that they had an arrangement
between them that one would
succeed the other as prime min-
ister of Britain.
Both were powerful figures
in the Labour Party and Mr
Brown served throughout as Mr
Blair's Chancellor of the Exche-
quer. Some say only half jok-"

Mr Blair gets the credit for build-
ing on the work of Neil Kinnock
and making the Labour Party elec-
table again. He led his party to an
unprecedented three straight vic-
tories at the polls.

tion events when some who
were relegated to the role of
opposition were reluctant to
allow a seamless transition from
one government to another.
*

The new administration
has a lot on its plate


but it is important to start
planning now to provide a
suitable home for our parlia-
mentary institutions. Both the
Senate and the House of
Assembly, but especially the
House, has outgrown by many
years the accommodations
into which they are now
crammed.
There is not sufficient office


His popularity waned
considerably in the last
few years because of the
Iraq war but his Conser-
vative opponents were
unable to exploit this
because they supported
Britain's participation in
the invasion of Iraq.
For a while it looked'
as if Mr Blair was reluc-
tant to honour his deal
with his friend and rival
Gordon Brown but no
doubt pressure from
within the party because
of the Iraq war finally
led him to step down.

What is inter-
esting is that
this is not the way prime
ministers as a rule make
their exits. Some go
when their party is
defeated in an election
and others go when they
are chased out of office
by their colleagues, as
was Margaret Thatcher.
In any event, the days
of mounting insurrec-
tions and shedding
blood in order to
achieve political office
seem long gone in
Britain. Mr Blair left 10
Downing Street, and
* went to Buckingham
Palace to inform the
-Queen he was stepping
down.
An hour later he was
followed by Mr Brown who
went to the palace to get his
mandate from the Queen to
form a new government. Then
he went back to Number 10 as
Britain's new prime minister.
The whole thing was smooth as
silk and elegant as a ballet.
This is the glorious tradition
of parliamentary democracy
that we share with Brifain and
most of the world's democra-
cies. Unlike Britain, we have a
codified constitution but we still
have many of the conventions
that are so important to the suc-
cessful operation of the system.

The great challenge for
Bahamians is that we
continue to honour these con-
ventions. It was not at all certain
in 1972 that we could exercise
the restraint and good judgment
that was necessary in the office
of a political attorney general
with ultimate power over pros-
ecutions.
The alternative was a consti-
tutional director of prosecu-
tions. It was Loftus Roker who
convincingly made the argu-
ment that Bahamians had
assimilated the conventions and
that a Bahamian attorney gen-
eral could be trusted just as well
as a British one not to abuse
this power.
We are not out of the woods
yet, as was demonstrated by the
former administration when so
many conventions were disre-
garded, and also by post-elec-

Bahamian public to provide
information that is truthful,
complete and necessary to help
establish broad public under-
standing of issues of critical
national importance.
"Tourism is our country's
number one industry. It impacts
every sector of our economy
and the information disclosed
by my ministry are irrefutable

unequivocally," he said.
He added, that his ministry's

The. minister claimed that the
facts speak for .themselves in
the matter, and accused Mrs
Hanna-Martin of simply trying
to "save face" over the issue.
"The fact of the matter is,
that more than two years ago
the former government was
made well aware, that unless

were made to Nassau's harbour
we would suffer very specific
losses. We are now today faced
with those losses and the chal-
lenge of how do we recoup
nearly six per cent of our cruise
arrivals, which corresponds to
more than $9 million of the

"I simply cannot imagine how

Grant said.

Ministry cites Bahamas' proximity




to the US as tourism advantage


FROM page one

have allowed the islands to
become the "leading offshore
year-round get-away" due to


the large number of visitors
from these areas who often plan
annual trips to the islands.
For Americans to visit other
countries on the list, such as
Europe, Asia, and Australia,
they need to allocate a consid-
erably longer period of time just
for travel purposes alone. Con-
sequently, persons will spend a
longer period of time in the
country if they visit the Bahamas
rather than international desti-
nations further away.
Convenience is also linked to
the affordability of visiting the
Bahamas versus the other inter-
national destinations. The
amount spent on airfare tends to
be one of the more expensive
costs when planning a vacation.
The Ministry has said the often
discounted airlift to the
Bahamas combined with the
accessibility of the islands has
allowed the country to capitalize
their advantages.
One tourism official explained
that "the four-day holiday is dis-
tinct from the extended trip
across the world." Not only
does travelling time create an
obstacle for these trips, but the
cost alone prohibits the average
American from making these
trips to countries in Europe or-
to Australia.
Therefore the public is
reminded to take into consider-
ation that the Harris survey,
which takes costs out of the
equation when surveying per-
sons, gets results of places per-


sons may not choose in reality.
The Ministry believes that this
mav contribute to the reason
the Bahamas was not in the top
15 of the survey.
The Ministry suggests that if
"you compare the islands of the
Bahamas with those high ranked
destinations in the Harris sur-
vey, on the basis of which desti-
nations persons are more likely
to travel to more than once in a
given year, the islands of the
Bahamas would likely out rank
most if not all of them given our
location and other natural
assets."
It is also suggested that
"Egypt and China, the two
countries replacing the Bahamas
and Jamaica in the top 16, are
certainly emerging markets that
have piqued the interests of
travellers worldwide. They con-
stitute what one might consider
part of the emerging less tradi-
tional element of the global trav-
el market, and are increasingly
considered more exotic, than a
Caribbean which arguably has
grown more familiar." This
familiarity can he proven if one
notices the increasing interest
in the Bahamas as a second
home.
The Ministry states "that if
such factors are taken into con-
sideration and the element of
what it costs to get to destina-
tions like those is removed, the
attractiveness of these same des-
tinations then is raised substan-
tially.


"But all of that notwithstand-
ing, it is certainly our practice
to monitor exercises such as
these because they do provide
very useful insight into trends
in the travel market," the
tourism official emph-
asised.
"Product and product devel-


opment remains a top priority of
the Ministry of Tourism and
Aviation, and the industry's abil-
ity to be consistently responsive
to what our country's own
research is telling us about the
needs and concerns of our
guests is critical.
"The Ministry remains vigi-


lant of industry trends and t.ij
loring a Bahamian experience
that showcases the natural,
attributes of our islands whoe
enhancing all things uniqtuel
Bahamian is what the market)
asking for, and we are doing tie
things that would permit us 1
do precisely that."

THE TRIBUNE


Prison sentence
%is upheld for
indecent assault
FROM page one
Sawyer referred to the evi-
dence on which King had
been convicted. According
to that evidence, the com-
plainant was a married
woman who had had a hys-
terectomy and while her sur-
gical wounds had apparently
hlialed, she had developed
keloids which caused her to
experience considerable
pain.
After discussing her prob-
lems with a female friend,
she decided to consult Dr
King who describes himself
as a doctor although he has
had no medical training
whatsoever and is not a reg-
istered medical practitioner
under the laws of the
Bahamas, Justice Sawyer
noted. She further noted
that King apparently deals
with natural medicines and is
a "sex therapist," which she
understood to mean that he
used various methods to
help persons improve their
libido.
O. 'n the complainant's first
visit to Dr King's office, the
two had a discussion about
bhtr problem and on her sec-
ond visit she told the doctor
.that she needed medication
for keloids. The doctor told
hqr that he would stop by
4er house and bring her
spme. He went to her house
later with his bag and sug-
gested that since he had time
to spare, they should do a
"treatment."
The woman, according to
'lihr evidence reluctantly
*Aent into her bedroom and
4Fay on the bed but accord-
'ing to the doctor's evidence
she had done so willingly.
There, the doctor asked for a
socket so that he could put
his machine (a vibrator) plug
in and so the woman
unplugged a television. The
doctor then took some oil
out of his bag came to the
bed and told her to take her
clothes off. The woman took
her trousers partly off and
he then told her to take her
blouse off too and she asked
why it could not be done
Iith the blouse on. Eventu-
aly she took both trousers
and blouse off and Dr King
rubbed oil over her body
massaging her. During that
,time he would stop and use
the machine. Dr King at
some point in the exercise
-apparently became aroused,
either as a result of the
actions of the woman who
"claimed that he had forced
her to place her hand on him
intimately, even though she
.objected to doing so or as a
-result of him administering
,<0e treatment to her. This
resultedd in him ejaculating
onto her chest.
. -, This led to the complaint
by the woman. Eventually
Dr King left her house but
.forgot his cellular phone
which he later called her
about and came to collect.
What he didn't know how-
ever was that at the time
,there were two other people
,in the house with the
,woman, to whom she had
complained about his behav-
-iqur. A formal complaint
was subsequently made to
* police.
: "While there are a num-
b er of interesting arguments
About the case as a whole. It
seems to me that the central
issue was whether the mag-
istrate who heard the case
,had properly directed him-
self on the applicable law, in
-particular the ramifications
, f the virtual complainant's
apparent consent to be treat-
,ed by the appellant," Justice
Sawyer noted.
/. "In accepting the evi-
,dence of the complainant, I
~ind that the defendant did
_ commit an indecent assault
' upon the complainant," she
said. "There was an assault


- accompanied by indecent
:*motives," she said.
* "It is clear from the evi-
.dence that the sex therapy
,was suggested by the defen-
dant. It appeared that the
complainant consented to
this therapy in her despera-
tion to get her 'sexual feel-
ing' back," Justice Sawyer
said in her judgment. She
pointed out that the sex ther-
apy included a manual mas-
sage as well as a massage
with a vibrator which was
rolled or pressed along the
woman's body and in the
areas near her sexual organs.
The agreement was that the
therapy was to be performed
in the manner prescribed,
but the defendant by his
actions departed from that
agreement.

FROM page one
wise, I over and repeatedly said
that you cannot build that build-
ing with that amount of mon-
ey," Mr Foster said.
The straw market that
went out to tender, he said,
went out for $100 per square
foot which was a remarkable
price.
"Everybody knows that an
architect is paid on the bases
on the percentage of the build-
ing agreed by contract. Maybe
he has a problem with a black
man making money. Maybe he
would like to determine what
my value was and that is what is
wrong with our society today.
Had it been one of the fair
skinned architects it would be
okay to charge 14 per cent, 15
per cent, it's okay, but it's not
okay for a little black architect
like me to charge six per cent,"
he said.
The former minister said that
one of the problems he had with
regard to the price tag of the
straw market centres around
greed.
"The problem we have with
this straw market from the
beginning was greed and that
played a great part as to why
the straw market is at the price
where it is today and it bothers
me greatly as a Bahamian. The
cost was prohibitive. Midway
through some things went down
that caused the price to sky-
rocket.
"The final edifice I saw was
some three stories. The reason
why we went to two stories was
you did not have sufficient
space on the ground for these
stores. A design was in there
for a restaurant/nightclub over-
looking the waterfront so we


could induce the foreigners and
locals alike to migrate to the
second floor. We also had
decided to put some stores on
the second floor on the Bay
Street side so that we could
attract people to go to the sec-
ond floor so that those on the
first floor would not have a dis-
tinct advantage over those on
the second floor. I agree that a
cost in excess of $20 million is
more than excessive for the con-
struction of a straw market.
Three floors was putting a lot of
money on the overall cost which
was not necessary," Mr Miller
said.
Mr Miller said that Mr Foster
submitted his renderings for the
straw market and it was a three-
story structure even though his
ministry specifically said that it
could only be a two- story build-
ing from the studies that were
done.
"It was nonsensical to go with
a three-story or four-story struc-
ture. From the beginning the
straw vendors were complain-
ing from the first straw market
that the problem that they had
was people not wanting to go
one or two floors above the
ground floor to purchase any
straw goods.
"That same committee decid-
ed that the group that was put
together would be responsible
for the interior designs of the
straw market so that the flow
would be beneficial to the straw
vendors appreciating that there
were some 600 straw vendors
that we had to put in there. I
then took a team of persons
from my ministry to China. We
gathered all the information
that was necessary for the kind
of conduits we were going to
have for them to display their
items," he said.

pal Robert Wade told the
campers that they have stud-
ied science, but this week they
are going to focus on "doing"
science.
"The school is so proud to
be associated with Colinalm-
perial, the College of the
Bahamas and the InnoWorks
group. This is the first time this
type of programme has hap-
pened here in the Bahamas,
and I can assure you that it will
not be the last," said Mr Wade.
William Hwang, founder of
InnoWorks, encouraged the
campers to be curious and
inquisitive.
Camp director Peter Blair
III, All Bahamas Merit Schol-
ar and current Harvard PhD
candidate thanked the partici-
pants for being a part of the
camp and told them about
their activities for the day.
After the ceremony,
campers were separated into
groups. Some headed off to
work on activities, while others
filled out a pre-survey and
learning style inventory.
According to Mr. Hwang,


EAGER students begin first experiments at Colinalmpe-
rial's math and science camp.


the learning style inventory
was developed by education


psychologist David Kolb. They
are using it to find out the
learning preferences of the
campers and will use it as a
"spring board" to make the
campers more versatile learn-
ers. .
Some of the scientific and
fun activities scheduled for the
first day were building a ther-
mometer and using sea fire
flies to find out how organisms
use light as a means of com-
munication.
The camp is being facilitated
by members of the InnoWorks
Bahamas Chapter.
During the week, the
campers will explore the world
of science, and further devel-
op their STEM (science, tech-
nology, engineering and math-
ematics) skills.

0 ACHIM Steiner, Executive Direc-
U ofca Cub has tor of the United Nations Environment
UNld-"- V V ole C H* d ub hProgramm, UNEP, attends a press con-


solved its energy crisis



without sacrificing



its environment


* HAVANA

CUBA has solved crippling energy short-
ages that plagued the island as recently as 2004
without sacrificing a long-term commitment
to promoting environmentally friendly fuels,
the head of the U.N. Environment Program
said Wednesday, according to Associated Press.
The electric grid still relies too heavily on
wasteful gas-flare reactors and heavy polluting
diesel generators, but the communist govern-
ment has taken important steps toward devel-
oping wind and solar power, as well as ethanol
from sugar cane, said Achim Steiner, the pro-
gram's executive director.
"Cuba a few years ago was facing a real ener-
gy crisis, 16 hours of ... electricity cuts and
therefore a realization that the economy was
going to collapse under this system," said Stein-
er, in Havana for a conference on the envi-
ronment and development.
"In terms of a short term response, it is quite
remarkable how Cuba, under its economic con-
ditions, managed to solve that crisis," he said.
At a news conference, Steiner said "Cuba
can look proudly at having solved a short-term
crisis with a long-term commitment toward
cleaner energy." He said his organization want-
ed to "put a spotlight on Cuba's efforts."


* CARACAS, Venezuela
AFTER three rocky years
as Washington's top envoy to
Venezuela, Ambassador
William Brownfield ended his
term Wednesday with regrets
he could not do more to
establish a dialogue with Pres-
ident Hugo Chavez's govern-
ment, according to Associated
Press.
Brownfield, who is taking-
over as ambassador to
Colombia, attended a flag-
raising ceremony at the U.S.
Embassy in Caracas as he pre-
pared to depart.
'"I regret that I haven't
managed to establish a direct,
serious, pragmatic dialogue
between the two govern-
ments, a dialogue to resolve
problems that involve both
countries, like drugs, terror-
ism, international crime,"
Brownfield told reporters
Tuesday.
Brownfield took over as
ambassador to Caracas in
August 2004, and his tenure
was marked by growing hos-
tility between the two gov-
ernments. On at least two
occasions, Chavez threatened
to expel Brownfield,'accusing
him of meddling in Venezue-
la's affairs.
A career diplomat from
Texas with a penchant for
understatement that at times
verged on sarcasm, Brown-
field drew Chavez's anger by
voicing Washington's con-
cerns about the Venezuelan
government and handing out


Just three years ago, the country was hit by
blackouts that wounded the economy while
enraging a population suffering through the
merciless summer months without air condi-
tioning, fans or any way to refrigerate food.
The government's response was a sweeping
"energy revolution" that included an overall of
the antiquated electrical grid, as well conser-
vation drives.
Fidel Castro appeared on television nearly
daily to explain improvements in excruciating
detail and government workers went door to
door in many neighborhoods, replacing incan-
descent light bulbs with more-efficient alter-
natives.
Steiner praised the energy revolution, but
noted that things were far from ideal. A gas
reactor throws a plume of dark smoke over
Havana's otherwise idyllic bay and most vehi-
cles here use leaded gasoline and diesel that fill
thb air with pollutants.
Meanwhile, Cuba's economy has recovered
well after the 1991 collapse of the Soviet Union
cost Havana billions in generous subsidies. But
that recovery has largely been fueled by oil-rich
Venezuela, whose socialist president, Hugo
Chavez, provides the island with oil at favorable
prices.


donations to youth baseball
leagues and charities in pro-
Chavez slums.
Chavez first threatened to
expel Brownfield last year
after accusing him of provok-
ing a confrontation by visit-
ing a poor pro-government
area where protesters beat on
the ambassador's car, hurled
eggs and chased his convoy.
Brownifield often responded
to Chavez by saying he hoped
the two countries could find
common ground in areas of
mutual interest.
He said more work is need-
ed on counterterrorism and
counter-drug cooperation -
both of which Washington
says have been severely defi-
cient under Chavez.
Asked about Chavez's
recent spate of arms purchas-
es, Brownfield said it's impor-
tant for Venezuela to be open
about those deals to avoid
"the domino effect producing
a weapons race" in the region.
"I believe the solution is
transparency," he said.
Venezuela has already
bought about US$3 billion
worth of arms from Russia,
including 53 military heli-
copters, 100,000 Kalashnikov
rifles, and 24 SU-30 Sukhoi
fighter jets. Chavez says he is
also considering buying Russ-
ian submarines.
"If the only reason to buy
submarines is to protect
against an attack by the Unit-
ed States, the purchase isn't
necessary because the Unit-
ed States never has attacked,


is not attacking and will never
attack Venezuela," Brown-
field was quoted as saying in
the Venezuelan newspaper El
Universal.
He spoke at the embassy
Tuesday before an Indepen-
dence Day fireworks display.
Chatting with visitors, he
wore a T-shirt poking fun at a
popular pro-Chavez rally
chant with the spoof slogan
suggesting some relief at his
departure. It read: "Uh! Ah!
Brownfield IS going away!"
Brownfield is being
replaced by Patrick Duddy, a
senior official in the State
Department's Latin America
bureau.
In an interview with El Uni-
versal published Sunday,
Brownfield noted that even
during the Cold War, the U.S.
and Soviet Union maintained
communication "to resolve
concrete issues."
"And that should be possi-
ble here, too. I hope my suc-
cessor has more success," he
said.

N A LITTLE boy enjoys a pony ride


THIS year's Anglican Great
Fair turned out to be a great
success, as St Matthew's
Anglican Church kicked off
205 years as part of the
Bahamian community.
The fair was declared open
this past weekend by Gover-
nor General Arthur Hanna,
who is also a member of the
historic parish. A special wel-

Couple have their



day to remember at



Dolohin Encounters


BLUE Lagoon Island -
Something old, something new,
something borrowed, something
wet? Dutch couple Jan and
Charlene Both realized their
wedding day-dream by exchang-
ing their vows in the sparkling
waters of Blue Lagoon Island
with their witnesses Jake and
Fatman, two of Dolphin
Encounters' dolphins looking
on adoringly.
"From the beginning we
knew that we wanted dolphins
to be a part of our wedding. It
was just a matter of finding the
perfect place to do it. We
looked everywhere. We
searched the Internet for so
many places. Then we found
Dolphin Encounters and it was
just perfect everything we
wanted," said Mrs Both.
The couple flew over 5,000
miles from the Netherlands to
exchange vows in the Bahamas,
leaving family and friends
behind as they escaped to par-
adise.
"Many people may think it
strange to get married with dol-
phins, but the truth is dolphin
weddings are what anyone
would wish for their day- it is


special, beautiful, meaningful,
at times tearfully joyful and
always, always fun," said Latoya
Rolle, guest services co-ordina-
tor at Dolphin Encounters.
"Dolphin Encounters has liter-
ally given thousands of people
the chance to make their
dreams come true by swimming
and interacting with dolphins.
When we started receiving
requests for weddings we didn't
hesitate to provide this special


service it was really a natural
extension of what we do every-
day for so many."
The unique wedding day
started with a scenic boat ride
from Paradise Island to Blue
Lagoon Island.
Once on the island, the cou-
ple were greeted by Dolphin
Encounters staff and escorted
to their secluded gazebo swim
area, which was adorned with
colourful tropical flowers and

white decorations. As they
descended in the water and
began the ceremony, Jake (one
of the male dolphins) brought
their wedding bands over as
they silently exchanged vows.
After the minister pronounced
the couple man and wife, the
pair and the dolphins kissed in
unison.
Over the years, Dolphin
Encounters has helped couples
make their dreams come true
by arranging their weddings in
paradise.
Wedding packages include
the service of a minister, deco-
rations on the island and on
platforms, catering, a wedding
cake, champagne and profes-
sional photos and video.
Unlike traditional weddings,
dolphin weddings require a few
unique changes. For example,
florists must provide bouquets
that are capable of being taken
into the water and sometimes
carried by a dolphin, rings must
be placed in a waterproof, float-
able box (provided by Dolphin
Encounters), and there are
times when the officiating min-
ister is required to perform the
ceremony in the water along-
side the dolphins.
Reverend Dr Jackson Miller
of Unforgettable Bahamas
Weddings has married hun-
dreds of couples on Blue
Lagoon Island.
He said the fact that the wed-
ding is performed alongside dol-
phins does not take away from
the beauty and seriousness of
the union.
"I myself hope to get married
here on Blue Lagoon Island one
day. It's truly a wonderful expe-
rience. I wish I could sit here
and do this all day and marry
couples. Being here reminds me
of how I imagine heaven is. It's
just a peaceful, beautiful, calm
paradise," he said.

DTeacon Camarie Curties;
who assisted Dr Miller in per-
forming the wedding, said:
"Weddings here are just as spe-
cial if not more so. It's so inti-
mate and private, and hassle-
free. You can't beat that."
After their swim programme,
the newly married couple
changed into their traditional
wedding attire and Mr Both


reflected on his marriage to his
new bride.
"This feels so incredibly good
right now. I feel like I'm dream-
ing. I'm in paradise with my
new beautiful bride. It doesn't
get better than this. Yesterday
morning I was calling her Ms
Klein and today I'm calling her
Mrs Both. I'm looking forward
to our lives together," he said.

Count Gottfried von



Bismarck, descendant of



'Iron Chancellor', dead at 44


* LONDON
COUNT Gottfried von Bis-
marck, the stylish and troubled
scion of one of Germany's most
-. famous families, has died at the
age of 44, police said Wednes-
day, according to Associated
Press.
The Metropolitan Police said
Bismarck, great-great-grandson
of Prussian Chancellor Otto von
Bismarck, who unified Ger-


many, was found dead at his
apartment in London's tony
Chelsea district on Monday.
A post-mortem examination
was due to be held Wednesday.
Gottfried Alexander Leopold
Graf von Bismarck-Schon-
hausen was born in 1962 and
educated in Germany and
Switzerland before attending
Oxford University in England.
As an undergraduate, he was
known for his lavish parties and


extravagant appearance, which
at times involved dressing in
fishnet stockings or traditional
Bavarian lederhosen.
Bismarck's life was clouded
by two deaths at his homes. In
1986, Olivia Channon, the 22-
year-old daughter of a Conser-
vative government minister,
died of a drug overdose in Bis-
marck's bed at Oxford.
Bismarck who was not in
the bed at the time was not
implicated in the death,
although he was charged and
fined for possessing cocaine and
amphetamine sulfate.
At his trial, his lawyer said
Channon's death "is going to
be a shadow over the head of
Gottfried von Bismarck, prob-
ably for the rest of his life." The
count said years later that some
had accused him of disgracing
the Bismarck name.
Bismarck eventually settled
in London, working in finance
and the telecom business. He
remained out of the headlines
until August, when a 38-year-
old man, Anthony Casey, died'


after falling from a terrace dur-
ing a party at Bismarck's home.
Dr. Paul Knapman, presiding
over an inquest at Westminster
Coroner's Court, said one room
of the apartment contained a
"bizarre" assortment of items
including a large rubber tar-
paulin on the floor, towels,
lubricants, bottles of vodka and
buckets of sex toys.
Police concluded Casey's
death was an accident, and the
coroner's verdict was "death by
misadventure," meaning no one
was to blame.
A coroner's inquest is expect-
ed to be held into Bismarck's
death. Funeral details were not
immediately available.

Spanish survivors

of tourist aflack in

Yemen rPetrn home,

along with bodies

of seven killed

* MADRID, Spain
FIVE bandaged survivors of a
suicide bombing at a Yemeni
temple returned home Wednes-
day one carried on a stretch-
er along with the bodies of
seven fellow tourists who died in
the attack, according to Associ-
ated Press.
Foreign Minister Miguel
Angel Moratinos greeted the
tourists as they debarked a
Spanish Armed Forces plane
just after dawn Wednesday. Rel-
atives hugged their loved ones,
grim looks on their faces, while
a motorcade of hearses removed
the coffins from the air base.
Crown Prince Felipe and his
wife, Princess Letizia, accompa-
nied by Deputy Prime Minister
Maria Teresa Fernandez de la
Vega, later visited grieving rel-
atives of those killed at a hotel in
Madrid.
A sixth wounded Spaniard,
Maria Asuncion Vitorica,
remained in a Yemeni hospital
to undergo a second operation
and was reported to be in seri-
ous condition, Spanish authori-
ties said.
The attack occurred Monday
when a suspected al-Qaida sui-
cide bomber plowed his car into
a group of tourists visiting a tem-
ple linked to the ancient Queen
of Sheba, killing seven Spaniards
and two Yemenis in a part of
Yemen known for its lawless-
ness.
The attack came less than two
weeks after the U.S. Embassy
warned Americans to avoid the
area, which until recent years
was rarely visited because of fre-
quent kidnapping of foreign-
ers.
Yemen remained on high-
alert Wednesday as security
forces deployed to the capital
to protect embassies, govern-
ment buildings and top state
officials. Nine Islamists have
been arrested so far in a gov-
ernment sweep following the
bombing, but they are not con-
sidered suspects, police said.
Yemeni security officials said
Tuesday that they had been
warned about a possible al-Qai-
da attack, but they did not think
it would be a suicide bombing.
They said al-Qaida had warned
it would attack Yemeni oil facil-
ities, government institutions
and foreign embassies.

Hundreds of militants surrender





at radical mosque in Pakistan


* ISLAMABAD, Pakistan

ABOUT 700 followers of
radical clerics surrendered
Wednesday to government
forces who encircled the Lal
Masjid, or Red Mosque,
with troops and armored
personnel carriers, accord-
ing to Associated Press.
Sporadic firing erupted
around the mosque and an
adjacent women's seminary
in the early evening while
three helicopter gunships
circled overhead. Clashes
killed at least 16 people
Tuesday, officials said.
Minister of Information
Mohammed Ali Durrani
said that "a few hundred"
militants could remain
inside the mosque, whose
clerics have challenged the
government by trying to
impose a Taliban-style ver-
sion of Islamic law in the
capital.
One of those who decided
to give up, 15-year-old
Maryam Qayyeum, said
,many were not leaving the
seminary. "They are happy.
They only want martyrdom.
They don't want to go
home," she said.
The militants had been
ordered by the government
to lay down their arms and
surrender by 11 a.m.
Wednesday, following a day
of clashes between security
forces and militants living
inside the sprawling mosque
compound.
All women and children
who surrender will be grant-
ed amnesty, but males
involved in killings and oth-
er crimes as well as the top
mosque leaders would face
legal action, said Deputy
Information Minister Tariq
Azim.


PAKISTANI female religious students surrender before a soldier of the paramilitary force, and female police officers Wednesday, July 4,2007 in Islamabad, Pakistan.
Armed militants holed up at a radical mosque in the Pakistani capital must surrender or face punitive action from security forces, a government minister warned, a day after
gun battles left at least nine people dead.


"The deadline has expired
but we are not going to start
any action immediately. We
do not want bloodshed. We
are reasonably sure that

better sense will prevail,"
said the capital's top securi-
ty official Khalid Pervez.
He said the government
is giving about $83 to each
person who surrenders to
help them return home.
As the deadline passed,
the mosque's deputy leader
Abdul Rashid Ghazi said he
was prepared to talk with
the government but added,
"We will continue to defend
ourselves."

Speeches

Qayyeum said mosque
leaders were not trying to
stop students from giving
up. But her mother, who
had come to take her home
said, "They are making
speeches. They want to
incite them."
Johar Ali, 20, who had
come to the mosque to sup-
port the militants several
days ago said there were
still hundreds inside, but he
did not see any suicide
bombers, who the mosque
leaders claimed were ready


to launch attacks.
The violence started
Tuesday when male and
fem'kstudent followers of
the mosque some of
them--Tasked and armed -
rushe'd toward a police
checkpoint. Gunfire broke
out among the students and
security forces, sparking a
daylong series of clashes.
A senior government
spokesman, Anwar Mah-
mood, said the death toll in
Islamabad had risen to 16,
but declined to give a
breakdown of the victims.
Earlier, the government
said they had included mili-
tants, innocent bystanders, a
journalist and members of
the security forces.
Ghazi told The Associat-
ed Press that 20 of his stu-
dents had been killed by
security forces, including
two young men climbing to
the top of the mosque for
morning prayers Wednes-
day.
A young woman was also
shot and wounded on the
roof of the women's semi-
nary, he said.


"She was shot by sniper
fire. They are shooting
directly at us," he said in a
telephoie'interview. "Ghazi
said there were no negotia-
tions under way with the
government to end the
standoff.

Meeting
After a meeting of top
officials early Wednesday
including President Gen.
Pervez Musharraf, Deputy
Interior Minister Zafar
Warriach said the govern-
ment had imposed an imme-
diate curfew on the area
around the mosque. He said
authorities had run out of
patience after a six-month
standoff with the hard-line
clerics at the mosque.
"The government has
decided that those people
from the madrassa who are
defaming Pakistan and
Islam will face an opera-
tion," Warriach said.
In the past six months, the
clerics have challenged the
government by sending stu-


(Photo/Anjum Naveed)

dents from the mosque to
kidnap alleged prostitutes
and police in an anti-vice
campaigng.
lThe bloodshed has added
to a sense of crisis in Pak-
istan, where Musharraf a
major ally of President Bush
- already faces embold-
ened militants near the
Afghan border and a pro-
democracy movement trig-
gered by his botched
attempt to fire the country's
chief justice.
The mosque siege sparked
street protests Tues4ay in
the cities of Lahore and
Quetta organized by radical
religious parties.
On Wednesday, officials
said a suicide car bomber
rammed a vehicle into a
Pakistan army convoy near
the Afghan border, killing
five soldiers and five civil-
ians. And unidentified
assailants fired a rocket at a
police station in northwest-
ern Pakistan, killing one
officer and wounding four.
It was not known if the
two incidents were linked
to the mosque crisis.

I CHES by Lona ~iiTrd BaI~~irden


Rafael Vaganian v Richard Pert,
European championship,
Dresden 2007. Pert's twin
brother Nicholas is already a
grandmaster, so the Ipswich
26-year-old wanted to emulate
him by a strong performance in
the 180-GM European title race.
But in the final round he came
up against a former Soviet
champion who, says the English
Chess Federation report, "gave
Pert a lesson in the King's Indian
Attack". Here Vaganian is just a
pawn up, but Black's pawns on
dark squares open up inviting
gaps for White's queen, knight
and bishop. It took only three
turns for White (to move) to
force resignation. What
happened?

By LINDA BLACK

THURSDAY,
JULY 5
ARIES March 21/April 20
This an ideal tinre for you to make
important strides in your career. You
will inspire the confidence of associ-
ates, however, it's important that you
actually do know what you are doing.
TAURUS April 21/May 21
Feeling adventurous, Taurus?
Now's the time to follow your
dream. Even if you like to stay close
to home, you'll yearn for faraway
places. Get on a plane and go.
GEMINI- May 22/June 21
Like it or not, you may have to rein in
your impulses this week, Gemini,
especially when it comes to shopping.
Put yourself on a budget, and stick to
it as best you can.
CANCER June 22/July 22
It's time to take personal and pro-
fessional relationships more seri-
ously, Cancer, Swallow your pride
and treat everyone as equals -
even those who have treated you
poorly in the past.
LEO July 23/August 23
If you've been thinking about making
changes in your diet or exercise regi-
men, now's your chance. No matter
how strong you are, it still pays to
treat your body with respect.
VIRGO Aug 24/Sept 22
Believe it or not, the good times are
about to get better, this week. You're
feeling confident and for once, you
won't be afraid to take the kinds of
risks that make things happen.
LIBRA Sept 23/Oct 23
You've been moving so fast in
recent weeks that you may not
notice just how lucky you are. It's
high time you slow down and count
your blessings.
SCORPIO Oct 24/Nov 22
Compared with the problems of
some, your concerns seem pretty
minor, Scorpio. Go ahead and put
your worries behind you. A chance
encounter leads to romantic sparks.
SAGITTARIUS Nov 23/Dec 21
.You've been feeling especially
jubilant recently and things will
start to tone down soon, but there's
no need for the fun to stop. Be sure

good times responsibly.
CAPRICORN Dec 22/Jan 20
Remember: good things happen to

feel good about yourself and the future.
AQUARIUS Jan 21/Feb 18
You may find it a little hard to get
back into the swing of things this
week. Don't fret too much, it's bet-
ter for you to make this a time of
quiet contemplation.
PISCES Feb 19/March 20 ,
No matter how blue you may feet
now, you'll feel much better by the
weekend if you don't just sit ai
home by yourself. Join in the festiv-,
ities going on around you.

Rain-swollen rivers crest in Plains,




but flooding may not ease up for days


* MIAMI, Okla.
RAIN had stopped falling
Wednesday and some bloated
rivers had crested, but many
evacuees were still unable to
return to flooded homes in a
three-state region and experts
warned conditions may yet
worsen, according to Associ-
ated Press.
Flood warnings were
remained Wednesday for the
rain-swollen Neosho River,
which forced hundreds of res-
idents to evacuate and blocked
key roads in northeast Okla-
homa.
The river crested at 29.2 feet
at about 1 a.m. Wednesday but
wasn't expected to fall below
its flood stage of 15 feet at
Miami until Sunday, said
Chuck Hodges, a meteorolo-
gist with the National Weath-
er Service in Tulsa.
"The upper system that has
been almost stationary over
Oklahoma and given us all the
rain has drifted well south into
Texas now," Hodges said. "So
for the next several days, there
will only be a 20 to 30 percent
chance of rain just about every
day."
Monday was the 20(th
straight day that rain had fall-
en in Oklahoma City, but
Tuesday was dry.
The Caney River was still
rising just north of Tulsa,
threatening homes northeast
of Collinsville on Wednesday.
More than two weeks of
soaking weather has caused
widespread flooding in Texas,
Oklahoma and Kansas.
While the rain had moved
out of Oklahoma, rain fell
along much of the Texas Gulf
Coast during the morning and
the weather service said more
was likely from South Texas
north to the Dallas-Fort Worth
area.
"We're going to see one of
our heavier rain days of this
event," meteorologist Monte
Oaks said Wednesday morn-

buildings and apartments at a state college.

ing in the weather service's
Austin-San Antonio office.
In addition to the flooding,
the Verdigris River had been
carrying an oil slick of 42,000
gallons of crude oil that spilled
from a flooded Kansas refinery
toward Oklahoma's Lake
Oologah reservoir, which
supplies water to several
cities.
However, environmental


officials who flew over the area
where the Verdigris River
enters Oologah Lake said
*there were no indications
Tuesday the oil had entered
the lake, DEQ spokeswoman
Skylar McElhaney said
Wednesday.
Upstream in Kansas, the
Verdigris was beginning to
recede at Coffeyville, but it
was kept high by water being


released from the Elk City and
Fall River Toronto Lake reser-
voirs, said Jim Miller, Mont-
gomery County emergency
manager.
At least 1,000 people were
out of their homes throughout
southeast Kansas, said Sharon
Watson, spokeswoman for the
Kansas adjutant general.
The evacuees included
Frankie Brewer, whose family


is waiting for water to recede
from their home in
Osawatomie, Kan.
"They say, 'God willing and
the creek don't rise,"' Brewer
said Tuesday.
"Well, the creek went right
through my trailer."
In hard-hit Texas, torrential
downpours caused more flood-
ing early Tuesday in northern
and eastei a sections of the


state, and some people had to
be rescued from vehicles.
The North Texas Municipal
Water District ended more
than two years of mandatory
water restrictions, saying all
lakes in the area were filled to
capacity.
The weather has been
blamed for 11 deaths in Texas
in the past two weeks and two
people are missing.

Freeport economy gets


'a real shot in


the arm'


Customs verdict to allow Freeport wholesale and retail licensees to compete with south Florida
* Ruling will aid Nassau firms in establishing Freeport base, and unlock Hawksbill Creek benefits and transhipment potential

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------


* By NEIL HARTNELL
Tribune Business Editor
mhe Supreme Court
S verdict that
backed the Home
Centre on the dis-
play of bonded
goods at retail has given
Freeport's economy "a real shot
in the arm", an attorney told
The Tribune yesterday, as it will
enable wholesale and retail
licensees of the Grand Bahama
Port Authority (GBPA) to
compete with south Florida
businesses by offering more
competitive prices.
Fred Smith, an attorney and
partner at Callender's & Co,
who had previously won four
separate verdicts against the


Customs Department in rela-
tion to bonded goods, said the
Supreme Court verdict in the
Home Centre case "builds on
the line of cases in which the
court has emphasised that
Freeport is a free port; it is a
tax-free zone".
"This particular decision
makes it a whole lot easier for
retailers and wholesalers in
Freeport to stock merchandise
and sell it to licensees," Mr
Smith told The Tribune.
"This provides them with the
opportunity to bring in inven-
tory without having to pay tax
[customs duties] ahead of time,
and effectively allows them to
compete with the US market.
This means wholesalers and
hardware suppliers can stock a


larger amount of inventory.
"Licensees will be less likely
to feel they have to go to Flori-
da or elsewhere to get a better
deal from wholesalers. This will
help create Freeport as a com-
petitor to south Florida. The
licensees have to have an
advantage in doing business in
Freeport, which was what was
contemplated by the Hawksbill
Creek Agreement.
"It gives a boost to wholesale
and retail licensees in Freeport,
which is exactly what the econ-
omy needs whatever shot in
the arm it can get. We need the
Hawksbill Creek Agreement to
come into its own, so that
licensees can finally enjoy the
benefits intended 50 years ago,
and for the next 50 years."


Mr Smith added that the ver-
dict "paves the wy" for a range
of Nassau-based businesses to
establish operations in Freeport
to take advantage of the fact
they could import inventory and
product as bonded, and not pay
customs duties until the prod-
ucts were moved to Nassau or
sold to non-licensee businesses
or he public.
"That will help boost the
economy here for Nassau busi-
nesses to have a base where
they can do that," Mr Smith
explained. "With the Freeport
Container Port here and its
transhipment potential, it's an
ideal opportunity for Bahamian
businesses to bring in merchan-
dise without paying tax and
export it."


Mr Smith said countries such
as the Gulf States, Qatar and
the United Arab Emirates, had
set up duty free bazaars that
were doing "huge business",
with buyers coming into look
at the merchandise, order it and
ship it out duty-free.
As revealed by The Tribune,
Supreme Court Justice Isaacs
ruled against Customs on the
definition of 'consumable
stores', deciding that just
because goods were displayed
at retail in public view did not
mean they were 'un-bonded',
with duty liable to be paid on
them.
He also found that goods

US tourist arrivals Morton's costs 'three times above normal'


drop 14% to April


- By NEIL HARTNELL
Tribune Business Editor
UNITED States tourist
arrivals to the Bahamas were
down by 14 per cent for the four
months to April 2007, the peak
of the tourism season, providing
a further sign that the sector is
in trouble as the Bahamas Hotel
Association (BHA) warned its
members there was "a price to
pay for apathy".
Detailing the suspected
impact that the Western Hemi-
sphere Travel Initiative's
(WHTI) passport requirements
had had on the hotel and
tourism industry during what
should be its seasonal high-
point, the BHA said the
Bahamas also saw 10,000 fewer
Spring Break student visitors in
March 2007.
In a letter to Harry Reid,
majority leader of the US Sen-
ate, on June 21, 2007, the BHA
said it suspected that most of
these 'missing' students had
probably opted to take a cruise
or vacation in the US rather


Spring Break
visitors fall by
10,000 in March

than incur the time, hassle and
extra cost of applying for an
obtaining a passport.
The BHA said: "Through
April of this year, tourism
arrivals by Americans are down
by 14 per cent. This decline has
occurred despite our industry's
very aggressive and costly cam-
paign to reimburse the cost of
obtaining passports for travel
to the Bahamas.
"The decrease in business is
most evident in our group, wed-
ding, family and impulse busi-
ness. The time and cost in pro-
cessing passports is turning
Americans away..................
"The cruise industry has
gained a considerable competi-
tive advantage by the delay of

MORTON Salt's costs are "three times
what they would normally be" due to the
company keeping all its 104 nOn-manager-
ial staff employed during a 15-week period
when no salt was harvested, its managing
director telling The Tribune that the com-
pany's current plight showed the need to
diversify Inagua's economy.
Glenn Bannister, Morton (Bahamas)
managing director, said in the wake of the
company announcing its decision to tem-
porarily lay-off staff for three weeks, a move
set to commence in the week beginning
July 16, said the company's per annum rev-
enues had been cut in half by the lack of salt
production.
With the company's salt pans having
received 30 inches of rain in the past few
months, and harvesting come to a halt on
March 13, 2007, Mr Bannister said Morton


Firm hopes to resume salt production in early August
* and close industrial agreement in 'one to two weeks',
as chief calls for diversifying Inagua economy


Salt wo'nld "be lucky to do" 600,000 tonnes
or half its usual per annum target of 1.2
million tonnes in 2007.
. Describing this as "a huge loss for us", he
explained that with salt production cut in
half Morton Bahamas' revenues would also
be slashed in half for 2007, and this was
barring the absence of any more heavy rain-
fall or hurricanes.
Morton Salt employs about 60 per cent of
Inagua's workforce, and Mr Bannister sug-
gested that the island's economy needed
to be diversified to reduce its dependence
on the company for employment and
income.
He added that among the industries that


Inagua's economy should look at was sus-
tainable, eco-tourism, and there is a project
underway with the Inter-American Devel-
opment Bank (IDB) to explore such oppor-
tunities.
"Diversification would definitely help the
island of Inagua, and it is something that
should be looked at relatively seriously," Mr
Bannister told The Tribune. "If there was
some diversification, such as sustainable
tourism, you'd have another source of rev-
enue and income. Salt shaking is agricul-
ture, and the business is weather depen-

Morton union


in strike threat


* By NEIL HARTNELL
Tribune Business Editor
THE union representing the
majority of Morton Salt's 104
non-managerial employees told
The Tribune that the company's
decision to temporarily lay-off
workers for three weeks was
"not necessary", alleging that
some 90,800 tonnes of salt were
harvestable now, and threaten-
ing industrial action over the
move.
Wilfred Seymour, the
Bahamas Industrial, Manufac-
turers and Allied Workers
Union's president, said the tem-
porary lay-offs, which will take
effect in the week beginning
Monday, July 16, following a
19-day notice period, would
impact the entire Inagua econ-
omy and community due to the
fact that the firm directly
employs 60 per cent of the
island's workforce.
He added of the lay-offs: "It's
not good at all because most of
the members feel at this time,
when we are so close to getting
back on full-scale production,
the temporary lay-offs are not
necessary........
"For the past few weeks, we
have had tremendous weather.


Says lay-offs 'not
necessary' and alleges
90,800 tonnes ready
to harvest, as it warns
on industrial talks

I got, from a reliable source that
does the salt measurements,
that there's 90,800 tonnes of salt
there that's harvestable; ready
to be harvested now. That's
enough for four weeks, and if
the weather holds, we will have
another 10-12 tonnes ready
before we get half-way
through."
Mr Seymour threatened that
the union would take strike
action once the lay-offs started,
indicating that Morton Salt's
move could impact the indus-
trial agreement negotiations
that both parties hoped were
drawing to a close.
"It really isn't necessary. As
soon as the lay-off start, we'll
stand the entire job down and
call it that," Mr Seymour said.
"The serious thing about it is
that we are now closing out an

The limits on mergers





and other partnerships


Exempted Limited
Partnerships and
mergers are two
corporate vehicles
that may be used to achieve
specific investment objectives
by-potential investors in the
Bahamas.
The unique features of
these corporate vehicles
allow greater flexibility in the
overall strategic planning and
structuring of investments
within and outside the
Bahamas.
Exempted Limited
Partnerships
The exempted limited part-
nership (ELP) is a limited
partnership comprised of lim-
ited partners, who limit their
liability to their investment
interests in the entity, and
general partners who have


unlimited liability for the
debts of the partnership and
maintain its active manage-
ment.
The operational, financial
and legal obligations, and
corporate maintenance, are
the responsibilities of the
ELP's general partners. It is
they who can sue, and be
sued, in matters related to or
affecting the ELP.
General partners may also
initiate the partnership's dis-
solution. Limited partners
may be liable as general part-
ners if they transact with a
third party in the partner-
ship's name.
In the Bahamas, the
Exempted Limited Partner-
ship Act 1995, and the
Exempted Limited Partner-
ship (Amendment) Act 1998
(referred to collectively as


'the Act'), govern the forma-
tion, operation, corporate
maintenance and legality of
the ELP.
The ELP is required to
have at least one general
partner, who may be a local
resident or a company incor-
porated or registered under
Bahamian companies' legisla-
tion (an IBC under the Inter-
national Business Companies
Act 2000, as amended, or a
foreign registered company
under the Companies Act
1992, as amended).
ELPs are typically, though
not exclusively, used as cor-
porate vehicles for invest-
ment funds in the Bahamas.
The partnership may operate
within the Bahamas or
abroad.
In order to form an ELP,
Section 9 of the Act requires


that information regarding
the name of the ELP, general
nature of the business, the
period of duration, registered
office address, the full names
and addresses of the general
partners, and a declaration
that the ELP shall not under-
take business with the public
in the Bahamas (as defined
by the Act) be filed with the
Registrar General.
The restriction on "under-
taking business with the pub-
lic in the Bahamas" is subject
to certain exceptions, particu-
larly in relation to business
with Bahamian IBCs'and
other related business of an
ancillary nature.
Where the general partner
is a corporate entity, the Cer-
tificate of Incorporation and
a Certificate of Good Stand-
ing must also be filed with
the Registrar General.
The words 'Limited Part-
nership' or the letters 'LP',
must be included in the name
of the ELP.
The registration fee for an
ELP is $850, and the ELP is
required to pay an annual fee
of $475 each year, except in
the year of its initial registra-
tion. Notwithstanding the
fact that the ELP is exempt
from annual business licence
fees, stamp duty and other
local forms of taxation for a
50-year period, it is required
to file a certificate each year
with payment of its annual
fee, indicating it did not do
business with the public in
the Bahamas within the pre-
vious year. The ELP is also
required to file notice of any
changes in its registration
statement.
It is important to note that
for the purposes.of exemp-
tion from local taxation, a
corporate general partner
that is deemed 'Resident' for
exchange control purposes in
the Bahamas, under the
Exchange Control Regula-
tions, will not be exempt
from annual business licence
fees, stamp duty and other
forms of local taxation.
While there is a require-
ment for a partnership agree-i
ment to govern the ELP's
internal and external affairs,
under the Act (as is typically
required for most partnership
arrangements) it is highly
advisable, as a matter of good
corporate practice and to
preserve protection of the
partners' legal interests, for
persons seeking to use ELPs
for their investment or other
commercial purposes to
ensure that a partnership
agreement is drafted and
implemented upon forma-
tion.
A Merger of International
Business Companies and
Foreign Companies
Section 75(6) of the Inter-
national Business Companies


Act 2000 states that a Certifi-
cate of Merger is prima facie
evidence of compliance with
all requirements of the Act in
respect of a merger between
two companies into a surviv-
ing Bahamiani International
Business Company (IBC).
Since the surviving compa-
ny will be a Bahamian IBC, it
will be deemed to be incorpo-
rated under the Act and gov-
erned by Bahamian laws, par-
ticularly in relation to the
efficacy and legitimacy of the
merger. This includes but is
not limited to the effective
date, legal and procedural
requirements for the proper
registration of the merger in
this jurisdiction.
Once the two companies
have been merged into a sur-
viving Bahamian IBC and the
Certificate of Merger issued,
the merger will be irre-
versible.
The Act does not contain
any provisions that address
issues of 'de-merger', which
seeks to allow the merged
company to legally re-organ'-
ise into its original structure
of existing as two separate
companies, as they did prior
to the merger.
Additionally, it is not cus-
tomary in this jurisdiction to
rescind a merger after a Cer-
tificate of Merger has been
issued by the Registrar Gen--
eral, particularly where the
merger involves a Bahamian
IBC and a foreign company.
It is important that the
principals of the merged
company notify the Registrar
of Companies (or his equiva-
lent) in the jurisdiction of the
foreign company that has
merged with the Bahamian
IBC, of the merger, including
the fact that the Bahamian
IBC is now the surviving
company. They should also
submit the relevant docu-
ments (inclusive of corporate
documents, agreements and
resolutions) to the Registrar
of Companies, evidencing the
merger into the surviving
Bahamian IBC.
The beneficial owners of
the merged company should
be aware that the new com-
pany will be a completely dif-
ferent and separate entity
from either of the two com-
panies that existed before,
notwithstanding the possibili-
ty of retaining the same name


and/or similar capital struc-
ture of the previous compa-
nies.
The liabilities, obligations
and legal responsibilities of
the merged company will be
separate from those of the
two legacy companies, and
the contractual relationships
of third parties to the merged
company will also be differ-
ent.
The shareholders of the
two merged companies
should discuss and resolve
any and all issues involving
the continuity of the compa-
nies as a merged entity, inclu-
sive of contractual obliga-
tions, effect of their share-
holding and corporate struc-
turing, before the plan, arti-
cles, and overall process of
the merger are commenced
locally or within the relevant
foreign jurisdiction.
The appropriate Resolu-
tion of Members should be
prepared and executed to
reflect their decision to pro-
ceed with the merger of the
Bahamian IBC and foreign
company into a surviving
Bahamian IBC, the effect of
the merger on the corporate
structure, management and
shareholding of the company,
and any other ancillary mat-
ters incidental to the actions
of the company.
The Memorandum and
Articles of the Bahamian
IBC should also be duly
amended and restated to
reflect the merger into the
surviving IBC.

Tribune Business

Bahamas National
Trust (BNT) has,
not surprisingly perhaps, come
under heavy criticism from
opponents of its controversial
$175 million Baker's Bay Golf
& Ocean Club project, who
appear to have been mobilised
by the Save Great Guana Cay
Reef Association.
In an open letter to Prime
Minister Hubert Ingraham,
Attorney General Claire Hep-
burn, and the BNT's executive
director Eric Carey, Alfredo
Quarto, executive director of
the Mangrove Action Project,
said the donation was designed
to distract from the issues
raised by the project and ques-
tioned why it was made.
Mr Quarto said: World-
wide, environmentalists and
island communities are speak-
ing out against this develop-
ment. Eminent marine biolo-
gists and conservationists
denounce this mega-develop-
ment for the many ways it will
harm crucial reef, mangrove
and terrestrial environments.
"Guana Cay's environment
is unique in this world, and its
elkhorn and staghorn coral
structure is considered one of
the best and last of its type in
the world. National treasures
like Guana Cay need to be
protected, and ensuring this
island is safeguarded is one of


BNT's stewardship responsi-
bilities.
"Guana Cay's marine envi-
ronment has supported a sus-
tainable fishing community for
generations, its beauty draws
international tourism not only
to Guana Cay's small cottage
tourism centre, but its reef
helps fill up hotels and homes
in places like Treasure Cay,
Hopetown and Green Turtle
Cay.
"Beyond the vital economic
importance of Guana Cay's
unique and fragile environ-
ment, is the overriding inter-
national importance of saving
these unique environments
before it is too late; before
these natural treasures are
gone forever."
All these allegations and
concerns have consistently
been rebutted by Baker's Bay
and its developer, San Fran-
cisco-based Discovery Land
Company, who say they have
taken all necessary environ-
mental safeguards and advice,
and that the project will be a
'model' for the entire Bahamas
when it comes to sustainable,
environmentally-friendly
tourism development.
Mr Quarto, though, suggest-
ed that rather than continue
the project, a national marine
and terrestrial park should be
created in the same contested
area.
"The economic and envi-
ronmental benefits will
resound for generations," he
said.
Backing that that letter,
Jeremy Stafford-Deitsch, of


the Shark Trust, said he fully
agreed with Mr Quarto. He
added: "The credibility of the
Commonwealth of the
Bahamas as a place of respon-
sible tourism was brought to a
very low level by the previous
government allowing foreign
developers to destroy the nat-
ural heritage of these islands."
He called upon the new
Prime Minster to act with envi-
ronmental responsibility and
to put the needs of the
Bahamians and the country
first.
Dr Livingston Marshall,
senior vice president of envi-
ronmental and community
affairs for Discovery Land
Company, told The Tribune
that the company had no com-
ment regarding the BNT dona-
tion, saying its reasons were
made clear in the company's
press release on the subject.

The penthouse is available

"When you consider this

a nation with an annual GDP
of $6 billion, there is probably
close to one-sixth taking place

find the kind of extravagance
that we take for granted in the

It is a tax-free zone until 2054,

Coke exploring



buying Snapple



or building its



own tea brand


ATLANTA (AP) The
Coca-Cola Company is
exploring whether to buy
Britain-based Cadbury
Schweppes PLC's Snapple
iced tea brand or build its
own tea brand, a spokesman
said yesterday.
"We're always looking at
whether to build or buy,"
spokesman Dana Bolden
said, confirming a comment
by Chief.Executive Neville
Isdell to a reporter during a
social economic conference
in Geneva.






INSIGHT
FoIth
- tres


Bolden declined to say if
Coca-Cola, the world's largest
beverage maker, has
approached some private
equity funds that have report-
edly been involved in bidding
for Cadbury's United States
drinks business, which
includes the Snapple brand.
Split
Cadbury Schweppes said in
March that it planned to split
in two, separating its confec-:
tionery and soft drinks busi-


nesses, as it apparently bowed
to pressure from investors led
by US billionaire Nelson
Peltz.
Coca-Cola has been work-
ing to expand its non-carbon-
ated beverage portfolio as
more customers migrate to
buying juice, tea and bottled
water.
Last month, it completed
its $4.1 billion purchase of
Glaceau, maker of Vitamin-
water. Glaceau, also known
as Energy Brands, was Coke's
largest acquisition ever.

decision to extend the passport
requirement for US air trav-
ellers until the end of Septem-
ber, permitting them to travel
with some other form of photo
idnetification as long as they
provided proof they had applied
for a passport, was described by
the BHA as "simply too little,

It added: "US citizens are
unable to take full advantage
of the temporary flexibility rule
because it is taking too long for
applicants to receive a tracking
number required for proof........
"The evidence is now over-
whelmingly clear. The WHTI,

dent."
Morton Salt and the Bahamas
Industrial Manufacturers &
Allied Workers Union, which
represents about 85 of the com-
pany's non-managerial staff,
have been engaged in some-
times fractious talks on a new
industrial agreement over the
past two years to replace the
one that previously expired on
October 1, 2005.
The two sides are now close
to finally sealing a new agree-
ment, so the lay-offs announce-
ment could not have come at a
worse time, given the sensitivi-
ty of negotiations.
'- Mr Bannister described the
-; industrial agreement talks as "a
separate matter" from the tem-
porary lay-offs, but added of
the company's general situation:
* "It probably shows the need for
. more and better co-operation
between the union and man-
agement. We need to co-oper-
ate more than in the past to get
'through difficult periods like
this."
On the status of the industri-
al agreement negotiations, he
said: "I feel that in another
week or two, we should have
*J an agreement" with "one or two
y outstanding matters" left to be
resolved.
"We have to get together
again and resolve those," Mr
Bannister said. "I believe that in
one or two weeks you should
be reporting that we have an
. industrial agreement."
t Previously, the main issue
keeping the two sides apart was
productivity-related pay. The


union had initially been seek-
ing basic salary increases for its
members of 9 per cent for 2007
and 2008, with a 6 per cent rise
in 2009, but then moderated its
stance to 5-6 per cent increases.
Morton Salt, though, for
2007-2009, was offering a 3.75
per cent basic salary increase,
along with a 40-hour week pro-
ductivity bonus that was equiv-
alent to 2 per cent of salary.
Mr Bannister said that on
wages, the two sides had "sort
of got that resolved", but the
company wanted to include in
the new industrial agreement
clauses relating to reducing the
work week, whereas the union
did not.
Morton Salt felt its inclusion
would give the company more
options, as under the current
contract the 40-hour work week
can only be reduced with the
consent of both union and com-
pany it cannot be done unilat-
erally.
Mr Bannister said it was
important for Morton Salt to
"contain the costs and encour-
age productivity" to maintain
its long-term presence in
Inagua, hinting that the rela-
tively high labour costs and gen-
eral operating cost environment
in the Bahamas impacted
Inagua's attractiveness as a salt
production location.
"As long as we're productive
and able to compete in the glob-
al marketplace, you'll always
have salt production here," Mr
Bannister said. "Inagua is one
of the few places in the world
where you can make large
quantities of salt."


He added that Inagua's
weather, climate, flat land, usu-
ally low rainfall and proximity
to the Windward Passage were
all advantages, saying: "These
are all benefits that make
Inagua a strategic place for salt
making, and you don't have
many places like that."
However, Mr Bannister
warned that Morton Salt's costs
were "three times what they
would normally be because of
the lack of salt production and
keeping everybody on".
Labour costs were already
much higher than in competi-
tive salt production nations,
such as Mexico and Chile, with
the former producing five mil-
lion tonnes of salt per annum
and having the capacity to
increase this to seven million.
Morton's Bahamas production,
in contrast, was 1.2 million
tonnes per annum.
"We'r competing globally in a
global marketplace with Mexico
and Chile, and in Mexico the
labour costs are much lower
than what we have here," Mr
Bannister said.
In his notice to employees
regarding the three-week lay-
off plan, Mr Bannister said:
"This unprecedented amount
of rainfall has negatively affect-
ed the growth of harvestable
salt cake in the salt pans, and
has. forced the discontinuation
of the harvest.
"Projections indicate that
with no more significant rain-
fall, there might be enough salt
growth in August to re-com-
mence the harvest."
Mr Bannister said that in the


best case scenario, harvesting
could restart in early August in
some six weeks' time barring
any major rainfall or storms.
Since March 13, the company
had placed its entire staff in
maintenance work, and the
Morton Salt managing director
said supervisors were "finding it
difficult to find things for people
to do" because all tasks were
completed.
To reduce the cost burden on
the company, from keeping all


staff employed on a 40-hour,
five-day working week, Morton
Salt decided it had no choice
but to activate a clause in the
previous industrial agreement,
which expired in September
2005, allowing it to temporarily
lay-off workers during seasonal
downturns.
In his letter to employees, Mr
Bannister said the three-week
lay-offs, after the 10-day notice
period, was "the only option"
the company had. Morton Salt


encouraged employees to take
their annual vacation during this
period, and offered to finance
this by advancing a loan against
accrued vacation pay.
Mr Bannister said some of
the 104 line staff and 26 man-
agerial staff would be kept on
during the lay-off period, as
Morton Salt had retained
enough salt to load up the ship
that brought in its food and oth-
er provisions for the return jour-
ney back to Florida.

son at Higgs & Johnson, were
supposed to come back to the
union and minister responsible
for labour, Dion Foulkes, with-
in a week.
Response
He claimed that no response
had yet been received by the
union, which is being repre-
sented by Trades Union Con-
gress (TUC) president, Obie
Ferguson.
Mr Seymour said the union
was only waiting to hear from
Mr Bannister and executives at
Morton Salt's Chicago-based
parent, Rohm and Haas, that
"we can get together and get
this agreement signed".
Urging Mr Foulkes and
Prime Minister Hubert Ingra-
ham to intervene in the Mor-
ton Salt talks,.Mr Seymour said
the company, which is respon-
sible for supplying electricity on
Inagua had just raised the fuel
surcharge and electric bills.
"We are paying the highest
surcharge and light bill in the
entire Western Hemisphere,"
Mr Seymour said.
He added that the lay-offs
would have "a very, very, very
negative impact, because it will


affect all sectors of this com-
munity, all organizations in this
community, the churches, gro-
cery stores, you name it.
"We are gearing up for our
homecoming, which will be at
the end of July and early
August. The Salty Festival will
also be negatively impacted as a
result of these lay-offs Morton is
expected to implement."
Glenn Bannister, Morton
Salt's managing director, said
the company had called in
union leaders on Tuesday to
discuss the temporary lay-offs
with them.
Union
He added that the union had
raised several questions and
issues they wanted answers to,
which the company had asked
them to document and present
in writing so that there were no
"misunderstandings".
Mr Bannister said Morton
Salt's production in the
Bahamas, which was expected
to be reduced by 50 per cent to
600,000 tonnes in 2007 as a
result of the unusually heavy
rainfall, had been "outsourced"
to the company's other sites
globally.

'It is all for Jesus or nothing at all'


* By CLEMENT JOHNSON
The other day I heard a story
about how a guard in charge-of
a lighthouse along a dangerous
coast was given enough oil for one
month and told to keep the light burn-
ing every night.
One day a woman asked for oil so
that her children could stay warm.
Then a farmer came. His son needed
oil for a lamp so he could read.
Another needed some for an engine.
The guard saw each as a worthy
request and gave some oil to satisfy all.
By the end of the month, the tank in
the lighthouse was dry. That night the
beacon was dark and three ships
crashed on the rocks. More than one
hundred lives were lost. The lighthouse
attendant explained what he had done
and why. But the prosecutor replied,
"You were given only one task: to keep
the light burning. Every other thing
was secondary. You have no excuse."
Temptation is a choice between good
and evil. But perhaps more insidious
than temptation is conflict where one
must choose between two good
options. The lighthouse keeper in our


story found himself in such a conflict.
So also are the would-be disciples in
today's gospel story. In such cases the
good easily becomes the enemy of the
best. One must then say no to a good
thing in order to say yes to the one
thing necessary. Today's gospel is a
sequence of four incidents and encoun-
ters with people who could have
become followers of Jesus, but who
were held back by ulterior concerns
and motives. Each encounter high-
lights a different concern.
The first incident is the encounter
between the messengers of Jesus and
the Samaritan villagers. The concern
that holds the Samaritans back from
accepting and following Jesus is patri-
otism. Samaritans and Jews were bitter
enemies. The Samaritan villagers had
probably heard about J.esus and what
he was doing.and were interested. But
as soon as they learnt that Jesus and his
disciples were Jews and were heading
for Jerusalem, their admiration turned
into opposition.
Patriotism and devotion to the
national cause is, of course, a good
thing. But when national interest
becomes the spectacle through which


one sees all reality, including spiritual
and eternal reality, then one is in dan-
ger of losing perspective.
The second incident involves a man
who says to Jesus, "I will follow you
wherever you go."
Jesus replies, "Foxes have holes, and
birds of the air have nests; but the Son
of Man has nowhere to lay his head,"
Luke (9:57-58. Why did Jesus say that?
Probably because he perceived that
here was a man who valued financial
independence and security. It is a good
thing to have high economic goals so
that one can provide adequately for
oneself and for those under one's care.
Yet when this stands in the way of
wholeheartedly following and render-
ing service to God, then something is
wrong.
The third incident is that of the man
who wanted first to go bury his father
before following Jesus. Burying one's
parents is part of the command to
"Honour your father and your moth-
er," Exodus 20:12. So this is a man with
high moral principles, a man who
keeps the law and who is highly con-
cerned for his religious duties. Again
this is a very good virtue. Yet Jesus is


saying that we should not allow reli-
gious observance to immobilise us and
keep us from following Christ who is
always on the move into new territo-
ries and new challenges.
Finally there is the man who wants
to go and say farewell to his family
before following Jesus. He wants to
follow the example of Elisha (1st read-
ing) who bid his family farewell before
becoming Elijah's disciple. This man
has high social and family values. One
could only wish that all men could be
this sensitive to let their families know
their whereabouts at all times! Yet,
Before the urgent call of the kingdom
of God, social and family concerns
take a back seat. "No one who puts a
hand to the plow and looks back is fit
for the kingdom of God." Luke 9:62.
These stories show that to follow
Christ is to follow him unconditionally.
Can you complete the sentence: "I will
follow Christ on the condition that..."
If you can complete the sentence then
you are in the same situation as any of
these well-meaning but mistaken disci-
ples. Jesus will not accept second place
in our lives. He will be first or nothing.
It is all for Jesus or nothing at all.

Let Freedom Ring


By DR WILLAMAE C MILLER
Child Evangelism Fellowship Bahamas
THE line "Let freedom ring" taken from the
patriotic hymn "God bless our Sunny Clime", writ-
ten by Rev Dr Phillip Rahming is very appropriate
at this time as the Bahamas celebrates 34 years of
independence.
As we come each year to the time when we cel-
ebrate the birth of our country, independence day,
we should feel renewed faith and hope in the
future.
God has graciously protected and cared for the
Bahamas and poured out many blessings and gifts
on our country. We have a heritage that is truly
great and glorious. Therefore we must be faithful
to teach our children about the heritage of free-
dom.


Our road is smoother because others who went
before us treasured freedom and fought to pre-
serve it.
In Leviticus 25:10 we read, "Proclaim liberty
throughout all the lands unto all the inhabitants
thereof."
Liberty
To keep our liberty we must be loyal. Are we
willing to pay the price of obedience and loyalty to
have a Christian land? If we would be free we need
to depend on God who gave us this land, who guid-
ed our forefathers in the way to make it free and
great.
Alexander Blackburn penned the poem, 'What
Makes a Great Nation Great':
The land's great which knows the Lord whose


IS WIFE, LEE


songs are guided by His word.
Where justice rules, twix man and man, where
love controls in art and plan.
Where breathing in his native air, each soul finds
joy in praise and prayer.
Thus may our country good and great, be God's
delight man's best estate.
Let's thank God for the Bahamas. It isn't a per-
fect land, and the people aren't perfect, but the
Bahamas is a great nation and we can be proud of
it and love it.
Let's pray for our leaders and the men and
women who defend this country. We should pray
for those who lead this great country not just on
Independence Day, but everyday.
Happy July 10
God bless the Bahamas

N By UNIVERSAL TRUTH MINISTRIES
n order to survive, we must change. We must
release old memories, habits and other past tra-
ditions. Only freed from past burdens can we
take advantage of the present. The conundrum
here is that we do not like change. We see change as the
enemy. Humans are creatures of habit, and no matter
how destructive our habits are, we love them and we
want them and we do not want to let them go.
This is not the way it was designed to be. Life is a
process it is a journey. That means constant change.
Really, it means the only thing we can depend on is that
things will change. That means that we have to learn to
appreciate change and to work within the flow of
change.
If we look around us at Mother Nature, we see that
nothing remains the same. Summer wanes into autumn,
which becomes winter, then blooms into spring and
waxes again into summer. The sand on the beach once
formed mountains; the water was once ice and clouds.
The trees used to be seeds. Can you imagine if Mother
Nature stubbornly held on to the status quo and resisted
change the way we do? There would be neither planet
nor any life on it. The truth is that without change, there
is no life. There is no living without this precious process
because the two are one and the same.
Rhythmic
Life is a rhythmic flow, and it serves us well to realize
this and to flow with it. Jesus, our way-shower, taught
the principle of non-resistance because he understood
that life is not stagnant we never "arrive"; we are
always traveling on the road towards perfection.
When he spoke of turning the other cheek, he was not
referring to violence or to being passive, but he was
speaking of working with the process, of letting the
change happen so that life could move forward more
smoothly. Things happen that we don't enjoy so much -
people we love pass away, we lose jobs and houses, we
injure our bodies, we hurt the ones we love. We fight
against events like these, but these are the "evils" that
we must not resist, the blows against which we are to
"turn the other cheek". These are the changes through
which we grow and become more and more glorious
representations of God in the earth.
In order to grow from glory to glory, though, it is
essential that we understand that what is happening
when we experience these things is not that we are being
punished, but that we are being stretched beyond our
comfort zone. There is no growth in the comfort zone,
and if we are to represent an infinite God, we can never
be still in life. Infinity means that there is always more -
there is no destination. We might as well enjoy the trip.
It has been said that life is a one way street even if
you take a wrong turn, you can't go back. It is true. You
can not reverse any experience. Every experience
changes you. For better or for worse, you have already
been changed by every experience in your life. What are
you going to do with the change? Are going to flow or
are you going to resist? Resistance causes pain while
non-resistance opens you to growth. The choice is yours.

Toastmasters begin their



calendar year with worship


t was fitting that this year the toastmas-
ters' calendar began on a Sunday.
Toastmasters used Sunday, July 1 as an
opportunity for the division council, club
executives and members to worship
together, asking God's guidance for the upcoming
year. Division Governor, Distinguished
Toastmaster George Taylor and his team of lead-
ers led nearly 60 toastmasters in worship at the St

Father Glen Rolle delivered a soul-searching mes-
sage as the country approached its 34th anniver-
sary of independence.
Persons
Father Rolle spoke of how many persons in the
country may be materialistically rich, but are spir-


itually impoverished. He encouraged the congre-
gation'to go back to the days when everyone knew
their neighbours and cared about each other, and
added that true freedom comes when we love our
neighbours as ourselves.
Toastmasters left encouraged- to. cooperate and
live as one, as the communication and leadership
organisation prepares to take on a new year filled
with new goals and aspirations.

turning


* By FATHER JAMES MOULTRIE
No one who puts a hand to the plough and looks
back is fit for the Kingdom of God. (Luke 9:62)
This is not a political slogan. This is what
Jesus said in effect in our text as He
described those who would be His disci-
ples.
I want to share a story with you from the auto-
biography of an Irish writer named Frank
O'Conner. In his book he vividly recalls the night
that he decided to become a writer. He had lost
his job with the Great Southern Railway and had
no money. Hope was fading fast and he had no
one to turn to for help. All who knew him regard-
ed him as a mad, good-for-nothing man. He had
to make a decision about his future.
Here is what he wrote in "An Only Child":
What mattered was the act of faith, the hope that
somehow, somewhere, I would be able to prove
that I was neither mad nor good-for-nothing;
because now I realized that whatever it might cost
me, there was no turning back. When as kids we
came to an orchard wall that seemed too high to
climb, we took off our caps and tossed them over
the wall, and then had no choice but to follow
them. I had tossed my cap over the wall of life, and
I knew I must follow it, wherever it had fallen.
MANY of us can relate to that story for we did
the same thing at Collins Wall before it was
opened up to pedestrian and vehicular traffic.
Many of us recall climbing over that high wall in
Centerville, bicycle or any other valuables in
hand, to get to the other side of town. The mission
was to get to East Street and beyond, and on top
of that wall you dared not look down or turn
back. Once up there, there was no turning back. It
was a short cut between east and west, just as the
God-forsaken wall represented the separation of
the middle class from the lower class. Thank God
that wall is no longer a barrier! But it reminds us
of the story of Jesus in the Gospel for today and
the story of Frank O'Conner that once we get to
the other side of life we are on a mission for God
and there can be no turning back.
In the Gospel for today Jesus dealt in a some-
what similar fashion with three persons who
believed that they had what it took to be disciples.
One volunteered, and Jesus called two, but each
had an excuse. When put to the test, they failed
completely. He said to these would-be disciples,
"No one who puts a hand to the plough and looks
back is fit for the Kingdom of God". Jesus was
highlighting the need for commitment to God,
and saying that there could be no turning back.
If you wish to plough a straight row, you must
give your undivided attention to what you are
doing. If you keep on looking back you would not
do a good job. You need dedication and commit-
ment. If you begin such a task, you should give it
your all. All of us have put our hands to some
"plough" or other: young people to their studies,
husbands and wives to their marriage, priests to
their ministry, to mention but a few. Once we put
our hands to the plough, there is no turning back.
If we keep looking back while on our mission,


* JAMES MOULTRIE


"Remember that each
of us has but one soul.
If we had two we
could cuss some
people out and lose
one. But we have
only one soul, so we
cannot allow anyone or
anything to cause us to
be separated from the
God who calls us and
who will ultimately

grant us salvation."
Father James Moultrie


our attention will be divided. So too will our ener-
gy. We would not be fully committed. We will only
be half-hearted. We are likely to lose time, to lose
sight of our goal, and be tempted to turn back or
even quit altogether.
To look back suggests that we are having sec-
ond thoughts, and perhaps doubts and regrets.


No


back!


Perhaps we are finding the cost too high. Maybe
other things that we thought we had given up are
still tugging at our hearts. But if we keep looking
forward, we will give our undivided attention to
the chosen task. We will be completely commit-
ted. We will be whole-hearted. That will give us
great strength and energy. All our resources will
be enlisted and harnessed to the task. We will not
easily be sidetracked. And so we have an excel-
lent chance of completing the task.
Those who are whole-hearted will find joy in
the task, despite the hardships. There is no such
joy for the half-hearted. So the message is: don't
turn back; don't even look back!
The first reading shows how Elisha obeyed the
call of Elijah. By throwing his cloak over him
Elijah was transferring power to Elisha (I Kings
19:19). It was a call to leadership from one great
prophet to another. Eliaha's response was total,
and by killing his oxen and burning the plough he
was precluding a return to his old life.
In the Gospel we see the best example of Jesus
Himself being totally committed to the will of the
Father. He set His face towards Jerusalem, even
though He knew that rejection, betrayal, and
death awaited Him there. He would not be
deflected from His path. He has given an example
to His followers of the kind of dedication that is
required of discipleship. '
This kind of dedication is a great challenge,
especially today when there are so may distracting'
voices in the marketplace. So many voices are
clamoring for our attention that it is difficult
sometimes to hear even the voice of God calling
us to discipleship. And even when we hear His
voice and we intend to follow there are so many
things competing for our attention that we get
frustrated and want to give up.
Sometimes we are frustrated by church people
who are only there to criticize rather than offer
words of encouragement. To be sure, God has
called each one of us and given us gifts to be used
in ministry, but we do not always persevere. We
need to be total in our service to God and not to
be distracted by those who seek to deter us.
Some of us Christians are easily turned off and
we allow people or things to get between us and
God. Some of us give up easily because of a com-
ment of a fellow Christian. And some people just
seem to thrive on making others who are trying- to
serve God miserable. They get right between us
and God. And when we let that happen we know
who is nearest to God! We cannot allow anyone
or anything to get between us and God and our
service to Him. God is depending on.us to be His
hands and feet in the world, and He will not
accept as an excuse that someone took our minds
off Him and his call on our lives.
Remember that each of us has but one soul. If
we had two we could cuss some people out and
lose one. But we have only one soul, so we cannot
allow anyone or anything to cause us to be sepa-
rated from the God who calls us and who will ulti-
mately grant us salvation.
May God grant you the grace to persevere in
your ministry that when this life is over God will
grant you a place in His eternal Kingdom.

Let's


identify and


talk about the poor!


* By PASTOR MATTHEW ALLEN
Matthew 26:11 For ye have the poor always with
you; but me ye have not always.

acronym for the word poor: People
Overlooking Opportunities
Repeatedly. What a profound state-
ment Yeshuwa Messiah (Jesus the Christ) made in
Matthew 26:11.
There are some persons among us that are in no
position to do for themselves as a result of some
kind of physical disability or sickness. Religion and
tradition have labeled such persons as The Poor,
but nothing could be further from the truth. If
these persons could do anything to bring about
relief, comfort and restoration to their situation I-
have no doubt that they would do so immediately;
therefore these persons can and should not be
deemed as The Poor.
Whenever the hundreds of powerless and divid-
ed churches in this country stop competing against
one another in building their huge sanctuaries and
in having their many conferences where their reli-
*gious superstars are paid handsomely for a few
hours of religious entertainment and spiritual aero-
bics, then they might be able to hear the cries and
meet the needs of the disabled and the sick.
A united church partnering with the Red Cross,
Salvation Army, the Government and corporate
Bahamas is likened to the hand of God ministering
to the many needs of the downtrodden in our soci-
ety. In order for this to happen all of the religious
bishops, apostles and pastors would have to die to
self and let God be glorified in this work, without
their names and churches being highlighted.
Now let's identify and talk about the poor! .
For years erroneous religious teachings have
filled the hearts and minds of church folks as
they've been preached to that it was Judas Iscariot,
which stated in Matthew 26:9 that "The ointment
might have been sold for much, and given to the
poor" during the anointing .of Jesus' head with the
precious ointment because he kept the money bag
or he was the treasurer. As good as this may sound
because we know of what Judas did, the bible does
not support such teaching.
Watch this!
Matthew 26:8 But when his disciples saw it, they
had indignation, saying, To what purpose is this
waste?
:9. For this ointment might have been sold for
much, and given to the poor.
Judas has been named as the one making such
statements, whereas the bible said that His disci-
ples (all of them) were responsible for the saying.
Twisted religious leaders have been emotionalis-
ing their messages to move a people in the direc-
tion they would have them to go, especially if
they're preaching on prosperity and the members


N MATTHEW ALLEN


are sowing seeds into the man of God's life. This
consistent ignorance of God's word has caused
many well meaning saints to live a life of poverty.
Our churches are filled with poor saints people
who have overlooked opportunities repeatedly -
and as a result have failed to live the abundant suc-
cessful life that Jesus gave to them. These are the
folks who claim to know the bible from cover to
cover yet they continue to live from pay-check to
pay-check. When hard times, disaster or calamity
hits, they are quick to blame any and everybody for
the situation they find themselves in; despite the
fact that they've failed to make the necessary
preparation for such hard times.
Religious church folks are some of the laziest,
ignorant and powerless people one can ever meet
or try to do business with. A person with this kind
of mind set can never see him or herself as an
owner of anything great, but rather always as one
receiving a pay-check or hand out.
Ignorant religious people can often be heard dis-
playing their ignorance of Jesus' teachings in John
17:1-26 as He prays for His disciples not for His
Father to take them out of the world, but rather to


keep them from the evil that's in the world. Then
He sent them into the world to do business and to
make disciples.
It's always the poor, broke, busted and disgusted
religious Christian that misquotes this potion of
scripture, here they go; "The bible says that we
should not be of the world" as to say that they
should not be doing business with the world, how
foolish.
Watch this!
In Luke 19:13 Jesus told a parable of a nobleman
who was going away and he gave ten of his servants
a pound each and said unto them, "Occupy till I
come" or in other words "do business until I come
back".- Obviously this business was not to be con-
ducted among themselves, they were to go into the
world's systems and do business. In reading this
article if you happen to be a religious Christian
who has been operating on erroneous teachings,
it's not too late for transformation to take place by
the renewing of your mind.
The teachers and preachers who have taught you
to think and operate the way you've been doing for
years may have been sincere, but I submit to you
that they were sincerely wrong, and that's why in
many areas of your life there has been a constant
famine.
Don't spend another year blaming, binding and
rebuking the devil when it's your ignorance to
God's word that has kept you in the same broke sit-
uation year after year.
Remember, Kingdom Minded Fellowship
Centre's acronym for poor is people overlooking
opportunity repeatedly. In Matthew 26:11, Jesus
did not say that you have to be one of the poor, so
stop the complaining, murmuring and blaming of
others, get over what you need too, then get up and
do something for yourself.
Your family, friends and neighbors are tired of
hearing you blaming the PLP, the FNM or some-
body else for the dumb decisions you've made and
then in some cases not having the guts and wisdom
to make an intelligent decision.
Always remember that man's extremity is God's
opportunity. In speaking to the church about wis-
dom and doing business, here's what Jesus said in
Luke 16:9 And I say unto you, make to yourselves
friends of the mammon of unrighteousness; that,
when ye fail, they may receive you into everlasting
habitations.
You have the power to stop being POOR.
Stay in the FOG (Favour of God)

Shaping our destiny


* By REV ANGELA PALACIOUS
As we celebrate our sta-
tus as an independent
people, we have to
count our many bless-
ings, evaluate our present status, and
determine our future course of
action. Since the true wealth of a
nation is its people, an honest assess-
ment of poverty and destitution
enables us to judge just how pros-
perous we really are.
Throughout the year, there are
weeks and months when particular
agencies or needs in the community
are highlighted in order to attract
volunteers and donations. They help
us to become more aware of areas
where change is needed. Sometimes
change is not forthcoming because
the persons concerned are quite sat-
isfied to remain just as they are. It is
we who have a problem with their
situation, not them!
Some want a better way of life but
do not know where to turn; others
know what to do but cannot be


"What is your
position in this
regard? Are you
seeking to reach out
to those in need?
Are you building a
personal kingdom or
helping to shape the
destiny of a people
by building up the
Kingdom of God?"

Rev A B Palacious


bothered to exert the effort needed
to acquire the fruit of a disciplined
life; and quite a few like things just


the way they are, whether illegal, or
immoral, or both.
If we begin with a consideration of
our Bahamian context, we have to
asses the current trends, past tradi-
tions, and desired goals. Do we have
a unified vision for ourselves as a
people? Do we have similar ideas
about what is to be the best way for-
ward? How much influence does the
Church really have?
Who are the people who have the
real power in a country? If govern-
ments change with the whim of the
voters, is it possible to maintain sus-
tained long-term dreams and goals?
Is there such a thing as a national
policy that remains in tact? Do we
need a referendum to decide our
future? Will everyone subscribe to
any one thing? If indeed some of our
citizens are intent on destroying our
country while others are struggling
to build it, how do we protect the
rights and freedoms of individuals
while promoting the welfare of the
people as a whole?
If we return to our constitution


and we decide that certain moral
and spiritual values are foundational
principles on which to build, then we
may examine all new developments
in light of the benefit given to these
expectations. The context needs to
be understood before we seek to
bring change. Let us think about the
values that we see being eroded, and
determine how best to restore that
which is being lost, and protect that
which is endangered.
If we all agree that the need for
healthy family life is nonnegotiable,
a strong work ethic is indisputable,
and a faith-based attitude to life is
vital, then we will have to work to
educate our people to come to share
these common objectives, to mentor
them, to acquire them, and to sup-
port them, to maintain them as an
ongoing reality.
What is your position in this
regard? Are you seeking to reach
out to those in need? Are you build-
ing a personal kingdom or helping to
shape the destiny of a people by
building up the Kingdom of God?

'This day is prophetic'



Churches to host national prayer and praise rally


he Commonwealth &
Global Prayer Grotto, in
conjunction with Trinity
'City of Praise' Church
and other churches throughout New
Providence will host a national
Prayer and Praise Rally on Saturday,
July 7 from 6am to 9am, on the
grounds of Trinity 'City of Praise'.
Calling it a day of divine release,
and an important bookmark in the
history of the nation and for God's
people, host pastor Ed Watson said
the prayer and praise rally is the
result of a command from the Lord,
who is expected to release a mighty
blessing and open the doors of deliv-
erance for the people of God.
"We believe this day, 7.7.7. is
prophetic. It is a day of release for
the people of God, for the provision
that God is releasing in this time, and
a day of healing for the nation.
"I really want to see the people's
spirits stir, to see the spiritual life of
the nation catapult to another level
and restoration of jobs and the
opportunities the Lord plans to
release deliverance in family life
and nation. We want to experience
change in our nation, and we believe
as we declare and decree that each
will bring particular release to the
body of Christ also unity of the
body of Christ."
Examining the scriptures,
Deuteronomy 15, where the Lord
calls on the Israelites to release those
who they have an odd against at the
end of every seven years, Apostle
Watson said that not only is 7.7.7. a
time of fulfillment and completion,
but, as the Lord directed the
Israelites, it is a time of forgiving and
to be forgiven.
With hundreds expected in atten-
dance joining in the prayer and
praise service, the atmosphere will
be saturated with the presence of the
Lord. Through declarations and
releasing prayer into the atmos-
phere, he said, there will be a renew-
al of the believer's spirit and it will


PASTOR ED WATSON
with his wife, Lee

have the effect of bringing them to a
place of acceptance in the Lord.
"This is a prophetic time. It only
comes by every 100 years and we
thank God for this release at this
time," Apostle Watson said.
Joining Apostles Ed and Lee
Watson and the members of Trinity,
will be a number of covenant part-
ners, churches and friends, including
Bishop Ros Davis of Golden Gates
World Outreach Ministries; Bishop
Simeon Hall of New Covenant
Baptist Church; Apostle Paul Butler
of Bahamas Christian Fellowship;
Pastor Cardinal McIntosh from
Eleuthera; Prophetess Mattie
Nottage of Believer's Faith Outreach
Ministries; Rev Ivan Rolle of
Comfort House Ministries; Rev Dr
Antoine St Louis of Victory Chapel
Church of the Nazarene and
Evangelist Colamae Collymore of
Women of Influence, along with
their congregations and prayer part-
ners from throughout New
Providence.
While 7.7.7. will be a day of release
for the individual believer, Apostle
Watson said the prayer and praise
rally will also focus on areas of
national importance for national
repentance and national salvation,
for a release for the family, the


Church, for a financial release for
the nation, for the nation's youth, for
the nation of Haiti and other nation-
als residing in the Bahamas, and for
the blessing of the Government of
the Bahamas.
One important aspect that Apostle
Watson highlighted will be the blow-
ing of the shofar, which is a trumpet
made of a ram's horn, blown by the
ancient Hebrews during religious
ceremonies. The sound will be
released in the air and through that
sound the gathering will tap into
what God has purposed and declared
on this day. "It will bring in redeem-
ing grace, break the demonic forces.
I believe if we can get together at the
top of the hill there just might be a
release in the Bahamas."
While the prayer and praise rally is
a one time event, Trinity also holds a
prayer and worship service every
Tuesday morning between 5am and
6am, where people can come to fol-
low up with what they need individu-
ally. The word of God is released in a
short 15 to 10 minute period and
then there is prayer time. The hour,
Apostle Watson said, gives life and
hope for the day and each week.
Preparing for this day since
October, Apostle Watson said that
this is the time for this nation.
"We encourage all citizens, both
church and non-church people, to
come and be in a position to access
this divine release. This is the year to
unlock and release God's abundance
to the people of God. We believe
that this day and this year is a year of
definition and a defining moment for
our nation.
"People can be prepared to
embrace and receive God's abun-
dance for their lives. And we encour-
age and ask for prayers and support
from all and sundry."

Praise Rally are encouraged to call
