Hundreds evacuated after

threatening phone call


* By RUPERT MISSICK Jr
Chief Reporter
A BOMB scare at Lynden
Pindling International Airport
yesterday morning caused the
evacuation of hundreds of per-
sons from the international
departure terminal, the ground-
ing of several flights and hour-
long delays.
Police mobilised their bomb
squad and the fire department
"after a threatening phone call
was made to them at around
10am yesterday.
Officials at the Airport
Authority were forced to imme-
diately put a stop to air traffic
coming in and out of LPIA.
Authorities also cleared out
the departure terminal, includ-
ing persons who were working
in the Customs and Immigra-
tion area.
According to reports, all lug-
gage was searched and couriers
were informed that their pack-






POLICE have a juvenile
suspect in custody in rela-
tion to the murder of 16-
year-old Ulrick Johnson Jr
who was fatally stabbed on
Monday night.
According to Sergeant
Johnson of the CDU, the
suspect in custody is a 16-
year-old resident of Price
Street, Nassau Village.
He is expected to be
charged in court on Thurs-
day, according to the police.


ages would have to be opened.
Police Chief Superintendent
Hulan Hanna said that police
received the anonymous phone
call after 10am claiming that a
bomb was placed at the airport
and was expected to go off
"What we immediately did
was to contact all of the neces-
sary agencies, including the frue
department and officers from
the bomb unit they are doing
the necessary due diligence to
ensure that nothing goes \% wrong.
"We evacuated the airport
based on the information %\e
received just as a precaution-
ary measure and we are going
through our search routine and
our other emergency routines
now," he said.
Speaking with The Tribune,
acting general manager of the
Airport Authority Jerry
Hutchinson said that while he
was pleased with the response
to the threat, he will not be
entirely satisfied until the
response from airport officials is
perfect.
After an emergency meeting
with all of LPIA's stakeholders,
officials resumed the airport's
services early in the afternoon.
Mr Hutchinson said that it
was fortunate that the bomb
scare did not happen during one
of the airport's busier times.
*"Wednesday is not a peek
time for us, so it's not too bad
but it is inconvenient for the
passengers because we have
quite a number of people we
had to evacuate and we have
planes that can't leave and can-
not land because we had to take
all of the people out of immi-
gration and customs," he said.
Mr Hutchinson said yester-
day that he expected the bomb
scare to cause at least an hour
delay on all flights.

Stores being
checked after
food recall in US
* By ALISON LOWE
Tribune Staff Reporter
A RECALL of potentially
botulism-tainted food products
in the US has prompted gov-
ernment officials in Nassau to
check Bahamian food stores
for signs of the products.
According to Marion Rolle,
senior price inspector at gov-
ernment's Consumer Affairs
Unit, inspectors have been
"canvassing food stores for two
days" looking for the products.
However, she could not say
whether any of the recalled
products had been found.
The recall was instigated in
the US following reports of
serious illness resulting in

Christie accuses
FNM of 'politics
of intimidation'
* By BRENT DEAN
Tribune Staff Reporter
AT HIS party's town hall
meeting Tuesday night, PLP
leader Perry Christie accused
the FNM of practising the poli-
tics of intimidation.
More than 200 PLPs gathered
at Workers House to hear from
their leader, and other Bahami-
ans who allege that the FNM
government has victimised, or
unreasonably ended their
employment.
One such person, Christine
Lundy, a former janitress at the
Ministry of Youth, Sports and
Housing for 13 months, said
that despite her commitment to

Kozeny 'made to believe he was not in
violation of Foreign Corrupt Practices Act'


* By NATARIO McKENZIE
IN AN affidavit, Czech-born investor Viktor
Kozeny claims that he was made to believe that
he was not in violation of the Foreign Corrupt
Practices Act while operating in Azerbaijan.
Kozeny's lead defense attorney Clive Nicholls
continued his submissions in Supreme Court
yesterday, highlighting several portions of an
affidavit by Mr Kozeny. In the affidavit Mr
Kozeny detailed his involvement in the Azer-
baijan operation and other events prior to and
after his arrest.


Kozeny has been charged in the US with
conspiracy to violate the Foreign Corrupt Prac-
tices Act (FCPA) which makes it a crime to
offer to pay, to pay, foreign officials in order to
retain business. He is accused of being the driving
force behind a multi-million dollar bribery
scheme, which sought to corrupt Azeri officials
so as to gain a controlling interest in the country's
state owned oil company SOCAR during its pri-
vatisation process in the mid- 1990's. US author-
ities claim that Kozeny and his co-accused Fred-

S Three murders


are committed
in 36 hours
By TANEKA
THOMPSON
A SILENT vigil was held
at St Francis Xavier Cathe-
dral on Wednesday, as the
country comes to grips with
the alarming murder rate,
which rose to 49 by
Wednesday morning after
three murders were com-
mitted in the space of 36
hours.
Two more Bahamian men
were brutally slain
overnight, with a total of
three merciless killings on
the island in a span of less
than 33 hours. As The Tri-
bune reported yesterday,
16-year-old Ulrick Johnson
Jr was fatally stabbed in the
Nassau Village area on
Monday night.
"We thought it would be
.beneficial to our country to
have a vigil at such a time

Concern over illegal
immigrants on
Harbour Island
* By TANEKA THOMPSON
THERE is growing unrest in
the quiet community of Dun-
more Town over the large num-
ber of illegal Haitian immi-
grants flocking to tiny Harbour
Island.
On Friday, around 20 con-
cerned citizens staged a demon-
stration on Dunmore and
Clarence Streets in an effort to
gather national attention over
the growing social problems on
the three and a half mile long
island.
The protest was led by Har-
bour Island business man, Mar-
tin "Lee" Grant, after he wit-
nessed a number of illegal
immigrants obtaining driver's
licenses and driving vehicles
around the island. "In order to

IN TWO of the largest clean-
up efforts in Nassau's harbour
history, several hundred local
volunteers, businesses and spon-
sors removed a staggering
16,180 items of documented
debris.
Organised by the Coastal
Awareness Committee as part
of their national initiative, the
clean-ups took place in an area
of the harbour from the front
of the BASRA headquarters
east towards the bridges to Par-
adise Island.
Hundreds of volunteers
including members of the crew
of US Coast Guard Cutter For-
ward, the Port Authority,, the
Royal Bahamas Defence Force,
Dive Stuart Cove, Dolphin
Encounters, the Department of
Environmental Health, the Har-
bour Pilot's Association, BEST,
the Bahamas National Trust,
BREEF, Atlantis Water Sports
Unit, Kiwanis Club of Cable
Beach, the Nature Conservancy,
Bahamas Marine Construction,
T and K Waste Removal and
the US Embassy joined forces
to clear the harbourt of an over-
whelming amount of debris.
Wes Bastian of Subway,


Chelsea's Choice, Sandals,
Senior Frogs and the Caribbean
Bottling Company sponsored
food and drinks for the hard-
working volunteers.
"The results of the Harbour
clean ups are disturbing," said
Earlston McPhee, director, sus-
tainable development for the
Ministry of Tourism and chair-
man of the Coastal Awareness
Committee. "The amount of
debris and the types of debris -
whole or parts of boats and cars
and refrigerators to name just
a few of the many items we
cleared from the bottom of the
harbour indicate that we have
to make a better effort to pro-
tect our environment, particu-
larly our .marine environment.
These things should simply not
be there and the negative effect
they have on our environment
and tourism is great."
Volunteer divers joined rmem-
bers of Stuart Cove's Dive team
and took to the water to 'gin
clearing the harbour flow of
debris.
Other volunteers helped place
debris from the water onto -he
land to be sorted, bagged or
placed in a receptacle.


A shoreline clean-up also
took place along the harbour
conducted by Bahamas Fast
Ferries, BASRA and Seaboard
Marine.
T and K Trash Removal
cleared the shallow water ways
of small wrecked boats or
pulled larger items out of the
water. Bahamas Marine Con-
struction sponsored a large
barge to remove heavy debris
and to aid divers with larger
pieces from the ocean floor.


Stuart Cove of Dive Stuart
Cove said: "Unfortunately,
there were just so many things
on the harbour floor, but we did
make a big impact. We
removed whole engine blocks,
boats, and countless smaller
items and there is no question
that we made a difference. If
more people could see the dam-
age that trash causes to our
ocean environment they would
think twice about throwing
garbage in the sea."

Man, 78, is

robbed while

tending store
* By TANEKA
THOMPSON
A SECOND elderly per-
son tending a convenience
store has been robbed, police
report.
This incident, an armed'
robbery, took place just
opposite the cemetery on
Infant View Road on Tues-
day afternoon around
5:45pm.
Yernon Grant, 78, of
Grant's Convenience Store,
reported to police that he was
held up and robbed by a man
who struck him on the back
of the heud.
The armed robber report-
edly took Mr Grant's wallet,
as well as cash from the
store's register and fled on
foot.
Police say they suspect that
two individuals were involved
in the robbery, and they are
currently investigating the
matter.
On Monday, a 87-year-old
woman tending a store on
Johnson Road was struck in
the face by a man and robbed
of $400 cash. Investigations
into this incident continue.
AROUND 5pm on
Tuesday evening, a drug
arrest was made at a cay in
the Exuma chain.
DEU marine officers, act-
ing on special information,
arrived at the scene where
they reportedly discovered a
makeshift hut constructed
from freshly cut trees.
After a search, the officers
say they spotted a man lying
among a bed of crocus sacks,
which contained 470 pounds
of suspected marijuana.
A total of 13 crocus sacks
and three five-gallon buckets
containing suspected mari-
juana were seized in the bust.
A 40 year old male resi-
dent of the southern district
of New Providence was taken
into custody in connection
with the incident.
The seized contraband has
an estimated to have a street
value of $500,000.
N A FIREARM arrest was
made in the area of Augusta
Street and Scott Street early
Wednesday morning.
Around 1.10am., officers
from the police central divi-
sion reported observing a
man acting suspiciously.
After conducting a search,
the officers reported discov-
ering a .22 revolver with five
live rounds of ammunition.
A 37-year-old man is cur-
rently in police custody and
helping with the investigation
nto this matter.

Call for

vigilance in

hurricane

season
A LOCAL weather
expert says Bahamians
should remain vigilant
despite the lack of storm
activity so far this hurri-
cane season.
Michael Stubbs, chief
climatological officer at
the Department of
Metrology, said the public
should not be fooled into
getting their guard down
because there have only
been two named storms
since the beginning of July
- neither of which affected
he Bahamas.
Mr Stubbs noted that
August and September,
he peak months of the
hurricane season, are fast
approaching.
Although hurricanes
cause damage and
destruction, Mr Stubbs
aid, they also play a
major role in nature.
"Hurricanes serve as a
mechanism to strike a bal-
ance with nature; its pur-
pose is to transfer heat. It
ransfers the heat from the
tropics where we have
continuous exposure to
unlight. It takes the heat


* By BRENT DEAN
Tribune Staff Reporter

THE leader of the oppo-
sition has questioned if
political interference has
influenced the impending
retirement of Deputy Com-
missioner of Police John
Rolle.
Mr Christie raised this
issue Tuesday night at a par-
ty Town Hall meeting at
Worker's House.
"I'm to understand that
the Deputy Commissioner
of Police, John Rolle will
retire imminently. That was
not my understanding when
we did our restructuring. I
assumed that he was going
to be on for some period of
time into the future. I just
simply hope, against all
hopes, that he is doing this
voluntarily," he said.
"But 1 also go further, it is
my sincere hope as I look to
what else would happen,
and I look to his replace-
ment, that we are not play-
ing politics with his replace-
ment," the opposition leader
added.
Mr Christie's comments
on this issue re-ignite, ques-
tions surrounding the inde-
pendence of the office of
commissioner of police.
Article 119 section six of
the constitution states that
"power to make postings
and appointments on trans-
fer within the police force
of officers in that force shall
be vested in the commis-
sioner of police."
However, on March 19 the
police announced major
changes to the upper core
of the force with officers
such as Marvin Dames and
James Carey becoming
assistant commissioners and
taking over the Airport and
New Providence District
commands respectively, only
to witness these moves and
others, totally reversed after
just a month of the new gov-
ernment coming to power -
Mr Dames has taken over
the New Providence District
and Mr Carey, the Southern
command.
"Just before the elections
. under the advice of the
commissioner of police, we
did a restructuring at the top
of the police force. We
thought we were complete,
and we thought it was done
on the advice of the com-
missioner of police. Just
after the FNM came in, they
,then did another exercise
that the commissioner of
police could not have, in
that short period of time in
my view, change his mind
on the advice he gave us,"
the PLP leader said.
Mr Christie regards the
FNM changes as a "political
exercise" and told the crowd

begins to "doubt' or ques-

Punishments should fit the crime


AT 6 o'clock yesterday morning, the very
hour that St Francis Xavier Cathedral was
opening its doors to start an 18-hour vigil to
"silence the violence", a 33-year-old Chip-
pingham man lay dead. He had been shot, the
victim of a presumed domestic dispute.
His death was the third in the space of 36
hours, bringing the murder total to 48 for the
first six months of this year.
The community is not only in shock, but in
fear.
The police are doing their best, but they
do not know what to do to stem the violence.
The best they can do is to investigate, arrest
and prepare the case for court after the crime
has been committed.
But how to calm the vicious anger that
more and more of our citizens seem unable to
control before it is too late is another matter.
This is a problem for the church, sociologists
and psychiatrists, teachers and parents ... in
short for the whole community.
Should anger control clinics be introduced
into the schools to weed out problem chil-
dren so that their therapy can start at an ear-
ly age?
More preventative solutions have to be
found as well as longer prison sentences for
many vicious crimes. Most people cringe at
the thought of the cat-o-nine tail ripping a
bare back.
Maybe if young people or even older
people realized they had to face "the cat" in
addition to a jail sentence, they might think
twice before breaking the law.
Recently a lawyer filed an appeal against a
judge's order that a rapist of a six-year-old
child should get 10 strokes of the cat ,- five,
when he started his seven-year seritence and
five on his release. His lawyer told The Tri-
bune that the sentence was "excessive and
barbaric."
This plea for mercy for a man who com-
mitted such an "excessive and barbaric" act on
an innocent child, should anger this commu-
nity. Also the plea of a lawyer that the pun-
ishment of eight lashes for his client who had
not only committed a burglary, caused harm,
but attempted to rape an 83-year-old woman
was "excessive" punishment.
If the community had had a say in the mat-
ter, the lashes for both of these men would
have been increased.
These sentences also have to be reconsid-
ered. One of the men got 16 years on the bur-
glary conviction, but only six years for
attempted rape, and two years for causing
harm, in addition to eight strokes of "the cat".
The sentences were to run concurrently, which
means he serves only 16 years for all these
crimes.
These sentences indicate that society con-
siders a crime against property far more seri-


ous than a crime against the person. Our val-
ues are wrong.
Take for example, the brutal rape of the
six-year-old child. The rapist was given the
maximum sentence under the law a mere
seven years. The judge obviously felt that the
deed was so heinous that she added 10 strokes
of "the cat."
This man is luckily to be safely in jail. He
must remember the scuffle outside the court
when this little girl's family wanted to settle
the matter in the public square. If it weren't
for the police, he could have been torn limb
from limb.
The crime was too horrible to think about.
Considered a friend of the family, this brute
took this innocent child out shopping. Instead
of going shopping he took her in the vicinity of
the BEC plant at Big Pond, raped her vicious-
ly, beat her in her face with his fists, and left
her for dead in an abandoned car. The small
girl, drenched in blood, her body battered and
torn, struggled from the car. She was seen by
the security guard at a nearby school. She was
in such a state that he was afraid to touch her.
He called the police. An ambulance took her
to hospital where doctors fought for her life.
As a result of this man's barbaric act on her
tiny body, this child when- grown to woman-
hood will never bear a child. Today she still
suffers from depression, disappearing in floods
of tears to her room, crying that because of
what happened to her she is nobody. She is
still under therapy.
And today, this same man dares ask the
court for mercy. Where was his mercy when he
was brutalising this small, defenceless girl?
This child will be 13 years old when he is
released from prison. Is this another fear that
she has to face? He is not only a threat to
her, but he is a threat to the community.
Lawmakers should consider lengthening
the prison sentence for such cases. And when
these rapists are released back into the com-
munity, the community should be made aware
of who they are so that they can protect them-
selves against them.
In the United States, they have laws to iso-
late paedophiles. We should consider the same
for the Bahamas. So many crimes of this
nature are being committed against our chil-
dren, that the perpetrators should be exposed
before the whole community. A photograph in
the newspaper and an outline of their crime,
might be sufficient embarrassment to deter
some of them.
But surely a vicious bodily crime against a
human being is far more serious than a crime
against property. It should have a far longer
prison sentence a sentence that would be
left to the discretion of the judge. And then
let's hope we have judges who will hand down
punishments to fit the crime.


Action plans for




community service




are not new


EDITOR, The Tribune.
I WISH to point out for
the information of the gen-
eral public that there is noth-
ing new about the activities
of an inter-governmental
group working together with
the police and the church on
neighbourhood programmes.
It happens more frequently
than one imagines. Indeed it
certainly did not originate
with any one politician as is
being claimed. This reminds
one of the US politician who
claimed that he invented the
internet. However, he later
retracted. He is now inter-
ested in global warming
issues.
If anyone should take
credit for an action plan for
community service in recent
times it should be Professor
Lawrence C Howard of the
Graduate School of Public
and International Affairs,
University of Pittsburgh.
The Professor conducted
high level courses for Senior
Government Officers on pol-
icy analysis and policy man-
agement. The courses com-
prised not only an academic
component, but also exer-
cises with face to face meet-
ings with residents. These
exercises concerned existing
problems which required
attention such as health
care/hospital, traffic, buses,
fishing, airports, etc.
One exercise conducted
covered the entire island of
New Providence, and
involved teams visiting des-
ignated neighborhoods to
hear from residents about
their social needs and how
government agencies might
alleviate their concerns.
Because of the police pres-
ence, at first there was reti-
cence on the part of resi-
dents in revealing informa-
tion, however, they were
assured that because of the
senior level of the group,
their problems would be
accorded personal attention.
As a result the police
gleaned much information,
on the whereabouts of way-
ward family members, hide-
outs for weapons, drug
groups, etc. Social services
officers were able to advise
of the availability of services
about which the residents
had not known, as well as
exchange of other pertinent


information.
Follow ups ensued. One
result was, for example, the
Ministry of Works was able
to accelerate its programme
of dismantling vacant dilap-
idated buildings where own-
ers could not be found, due
to the illegal use of these
structures. Much good came
out of this project, without
the raucous publicity for
political purposes.
I am also surprised that
some of our neighboring
Caribbean countries felt that
here was something new
which they had not them-
selves pursued.
What we do not need at
this time are town meetings
for political purposes with
persons outfitted in political
shirts and paraphernalia. So


please, let us lower the vol-
ume. This is not the time for
political grandstanding
again. Because within the
Ministries one will find that
from the beginning, there
are .plans and programmes
which may be updated
according to the dictates of
the time. So whether a pro-
ject is labelled "The Grants
Town project" or some oth-
er similar societal plan, the
objective is the same to aid
society. It is not new. ZNS
please note.

St Lucia resort

solar-powered
ferry boat
ST LUCIA
Castries
A SOLAR-POWERED ferry
has been introduced by a resort
in St Lucia that hopes to inspire
others across the Caribbean, the
owner said Tuesday, according
to Associated Press.
The 12-foot Sunshine
Express, which has photovolta-
ic panels mounted on the roof,
carries up to 15 guests of the
Discovery at Marigot Bay resort
to waterfront bars and restau-
rants.
"One resource the Caribbean
has in abundance is solar pow-
er," owner Judith Verity said.
"We hope that the (ferry) will
be the first of many solar-pow-
ered boats not just in St Lucia
but throughout the Caribbean."
Verity said the vessel, touted
as the first of its kind in the
Caribbean, was designed by the
harbour master and built by
local craftsmen.


BIS appointments BED BATH & HOME



of Foulkes and ?


Turner defended


By KARIN HERIG
Tribune Staff Reporter
SENATOR Katherine
Forbes-Smith during a debate
in the upper chamber defend-
ed the appointments of Sir
Arthur Foulkes and Sharon
Turner to key positions with-
in Bahamas Information Ser-
vices stating that no conflict
of interest exists.
Mrs Forbes-Smith, in her
contribution to the debate on
the Speech from the Throne,
told her colleagues that both
Sir Arthur and Mrs Turner, a
former FNM press officer,
were chosen for the posts of
director general and deputy
director, respectively, based
on their merits and capabili-
ties.
Mrs Forbes-Smith, who has
responsibility for ZNS and
BIS, said that Sir Arthur is
without question one of the
country's leading journalists.
"In addition, he has had
vast experience in the service
of his country as a politician in
both political parties and as a
diplomat," she said.
The senator said that those
who fear that Sir Arthur will
subvert the agency for parti-
san purposes, need not fear.
"They are judging him by
their own standards. We
should also recognize what
BIS is. BIS is to promote the
policies of the government. If
the PLP is in office BIS is to
promote the policies of a PLP
government. The FNM is in
office BIS is to promote the
policies of the FNM govern-
' ment.
"Like all the other profes-
sionals at BIS, he knows the
difference between party and
government and he knows the
difference between informa-
tion and political opinion," she
said.
Senator Forbes-Smith said
that a lot of misinformation,
has been circulated by certain


in this country for which she is
qualified."
"If people who have worked
for the PLP can work for the
government, why can't people
who have worked for the FNM
also work for the government?
Are they outcasts, is employ-
ment in the government service
off limits to them?" she asked.
The senator explained
although there are presently still
some failings within BIS, there
is tremendous potential for the
organisation to do the.job for
which it was originally created
and which changing circum-
stances now demand.

Forbes-Smith


persons about Sir Arthur's
alleged appointment as deputy
governor-general with the aim
to create the perception of a
conflict of interest where there
is none.
"The truth is that there is
no such post in the Bahamas
as deputy governor-general.
Certain persons are appointed
from time to time and for
short periods, I repeat, short
periods to act as deputy to the
governor general, and to per-
form the functions of that
office during the absence of
the governor general.
"The previous administra-
tion appointed such persons
from time to time and they'
were not required to give up
their professions nor their
political involvement. Nor
should they have been," she
said.
Mrs Forbes-Smith said that
Sir Arthur has given up writ-
ing his column in The Tribune,
for no other reason than to
concentrate his energies on
improving BIS.
As it concerns Mrs Turner's
appoint to BIS' deputy direc-
tor, the senator said that she is

THE dismantling of the
PLP's 'Swift Justice' pro-
gramme will lead to.decade-
long delays for court cases and
calls into question the FNM's
seriousness about fighting
crime, former attorney general
Senator Alyson Maynard-GIb-
* son said.
Giving her contribution to the
Senate debate on the Speech
from the Throne, Mrs Maynard-
Gibson said that arrests with-
out swift movement to trial and
punishment does not demon-
strate seriousness about crime.
The senator said that the
'Swift Justice' initiative was
working and that the disman-
tling of the programme will
'lead, among other things, to less
co-ordination within the court
system, subpoenas not being
served on time, and witnesses,
including investigating officers,
not turning up for trials.
Mrs Maynard-Gibson also
warned that this move will lead
to incomplete files continuing
to be brought to the Office of
the Attorney General.
"Evidence including photos,
forensics, ballistics et cetera will
not be there on time for trial,"
she said.
Before long, trials for serious
matters, such as rape, will once
again take six to 10 years to
come to court, the senator said.


-
* ALYSON Maynard-Gibson

If matters are not being
brought to court in a timely
fashion, victims of crime will
not be able to achieve closure,
she added.
The former attorney general
said that the FNM's decision as it
concerns 'Swift Justice' will mean
that more people will be out on
bail longer while awaiting trial for
serious offences. The long waiting
time will give such individuals the
opportunity to commit more seri-
ous offences, she said.
Mrs Maynard-Gibson further
questioned the fact that there
seemed to be no move on the
government's side to implement
an electronic tracking system


for those persons out on bail.
"We have to question
whether the FNM is serious
about crime," she said.
The senator emphasised that
while the 'Swift Justice' pro-
gramme is not perfect, "it was a
concrete step to positively
address a real problem.
"Dismantling (the pro-
gramme) is as shocking and dis-
graceful (as) getting rid of
Urban Renewal and the shame-
ful and nakedly disgraceful
attempt to move straw vendors
from Bay Street, and the
shameful and disgraceful shelv-
ing of the National Health
Insurance," she said.

* In brief

Antigua asks
for billions in
sanctions
against US

* GENEVA
THE tiny Caribbean nation
of Antigua and Barbuda asked
the World Trade Organisation
on Tuesday for the right to
authorize $3.4 billion in com-
mercial sanctions against the
United States for its failure to
comply with a WTO ruling
against its web gambling restric-
tions, according to Associated
Press.
Washington acknowledged
that its online betting ban was
ruled illegal by the WTO, but
challenged Antigua's right to
retaliate. The US says it is in
the process of rewriting its
obligations under a 1994 WTO
treaty, removing online gam-
bling from the agreement.
The US also rejected the
amount requested by Antigua
as "patently excessive."
"The level sought by Antigua
and Barbuda is several times
higher than Antigua and Bar-
buda's annual gross domestic
product of all goods and ser-
vices," US trade lawyer Juan
Millan told the WTO's dispute
settlement body.
The WTO set up an arbitra-
tion panel to rule on the matter.
In March, the WTO ruled
that the US had the right to pre-
vent offshore betting, as'a
means of protecting public
order and public morals. But
the trade body said it was illegal
to target online gambling, with-
out equally applying the rules
to American operators offering
remote betting on horse and
dog racing.
Antigua has been promoting
gambling and other kinds of
internet commerce as a way to
end the country's reliance on
tourism, which was hurt by a
series of hurricanes in the late
1990s.

New maritime
school'
planned in
Grenada

N ST MAARTEN
Philipsburg
A MARITIME school in St
Maarten said it plans to open a
second campus in the southern
Caribbean island of Grenada to
handle a rising number of pri-
vate yachts in the region,
according to Associated Press.
The Dutch territory's Mar-
itime School of the West Indies
will open the training school next
year at the new Port Louis resort
and marina, school principal
Veerle Rolus said Tuesday.
"Finding crew, particularly
engineers and cooks, has been a
difficulty," Rolus said. "With
Grenada expanding more har-
bors, we expect that there will
be a strong opportunity for
qualified crew."
Megayachts, or luxury boats
longer than 80 feet, are becom-
ing increasingly popular in the
Caribbean.
Island governments and
entrepreneurs are developing
waterfront property and
expanding marinas to handle
the vessels, each of which may
have dozens of crew members.
Today, there are an estimated
7,000 yachts over 80 feet in use,
according to ShowBoats Inter-
national, a publication that
tracks vessel construction. In
1993, there were fewer than 700.


Inagua shows off its eco side


MATTHEW Town -
Bimini's boast of being the
sports fishing capital of the
Bahamas is being challenged,
Inaguans say.
"When you're talking about
game fishing, we have it all
right at our doorstep," said
local historian and community
co-ordinator Vivian Moultrie.
"Jacks, tunas, snooks, tarpons,
bonitos, wahoos, mahi-mahis.
"We may not be as well
known as Bimini, but that
does not change the fact that
the best game fishing is found
right here."
Andrew Griswold of Essex,
Connecticut, found that out
when, off the seldom-fished
Northeast Point, a hungry three-
foot barracuda took his line.
"I thought I had hooked the
bottom," beamed Griswold of
Connecticut Audubon Eco-
Travel. "It was so big! The
fishing here is great, the bird-
ing is great, and the people
are fantastic."
Now that the best kept
secret in the Bahamas is out,
the Ministry of Tourism is
making a big deal about it.
It wants the world to know
that besides hospitable resi-
dents, raucous flocks of rare
Bahama parrots and tens of
thousands of wild West Indian
flamingos, this southernmost
island in the Bahamas has
some surprises.
Covering nearly 700 square
miles, Great Inagua, Little
Inagua and two cays lie
around 70 miles north of His-
paniola, between Cuba, 50
miles to the southwest, and
the Turks and Caicos Islands,
30 miles due east.
Site of the 184,000-acre
Inagua National Park, Great
Inagua is home to historic
Matthew Town, a port of
entry, washed by the navy


"Training is a big part of what
the ministry can provide to help
Inaguans get to that point
where they are ready for
tourists to come down and . .
really enjoy the island."
Inaguan Ezzard Cartwright


may not be a household name
as is Israel 'Bonefish Foley'
Rolle, but his savvy for outwit-
ting the wily Bahama bonefish
is no less pronounced.
Cartwright's bonefish lodge
is booked full through next year.

The government and the
Inter-American Development
Bank (IDB) in 2004 under-
took a sustainable tourism
assessment of Inagua. This
was done in conjunction with
the Bahamas National Trust
(BNT). Recommendations for
pursuing environmentally and
historically related tourism
were made.
The assessment was under-
taken against the background
of Inagua's economic depen-
dence on the Morton Salt
operation, and the tendency
of youngsters to leave home to
earn a living.
The Bahamas government,
the BNT and IDB agreed on a
plan setting out the frame-

potential.

* By RICK LOWE

FELLOW blogger and
Tribune columnist,
Adrian Gibson opines at
www.weblogbahamas.com
"...that the Bahamas Christian
Council's new president, John
Humes, was out of line with his
recent comments about politics,
the PLP's election court fight,
etc...."
While I agree that a couple of
Rev Humes' comments might
be considered political, like sug-
gesting that the PLP would have
liked the Christian Council to
go on their political platform,
for example, generally speaking
I think he is correct.
Not to put words in Rev
Humes' mouth, but I do think
the PLP's actions are an attempt
to destabilise the country by con-
tinuing to rile supporters up
when the matter is now before
the election court.
In fact, I would not have
thought that the PLP would be
acting in such an immature and
irresponsible manner over the
election, when they were ulti-
mately in charge of organising
it, and particularly when former
Prime Minister Perry Christie
staked his political career on
transforming the PLP and poli-
tics in The Bahamas with a "new
political culture".
If the attitude they are dis-
playing is a new political culture
- God help our great little
country.
Who would have thought
Prime Minister Hubert Ingra-
ham, who we used to refer to as
"Hubiggety", would be looking
like a statesman and Perry
Christie looking like an angry
tyrant, more concerned with
political power than .the coun-
try in general? Talk about role
reversal!
When I supported the elec-
tion of Pierre Dupuch as an
Independent candidate in 2002

EXERIATR


the Chairman of the PLP, Ray-
nard Rigby, had to say about his
comments. But the PLP do not
really believe in free speech for
anyone but themselves in recent
years.
This is truly incredible when
the PLP was the party that
brought majority rule and inde-
pendence by advancing the
cause of free speech and associ-
ation.

I wonder if some of the for-
mer PLP leaders are turn-
ing in their graves and if those
still with us are proud of how
their once great party seems to
be retrograding. It appears they
will say anything to regain pow-
er.
As John Locke, the British
philosopher said in 1690:
"The great question which in
all ages, has disturbed mankind,
and brought on them the great-
est part of those mischiefs which
have ruined cities, depopulated
countries, and disordered the
peace of the world, has been,
not whether there be power in
the world nor whence it came,
but who should have it."
I wonder if he saw the future
of the PLP from way back then?
The church and all citizens
should be able to speak their
minds with regard to keeping
our political directorate in check
as guaranteed by our Constitu-
tion.
Many people believe there
would have been no abolition of
slavery or civil rights movement
without the direct involvement
of the church in politics, so we
must be careful about denying
the Church its say. Political par-
tisanship is one thing, speaking
out on serious matters of state is
another. And most of what Rev
Humes was quoted as saying are
serious matters of state.

many of my friends and associ-
ates indicated that my actions
would only help re-elect the PLP
and they still had far too many of
the "old PLP regime" hanging
around to usher in a new politi-
cal culture. At the time I
responded that the FNM had
advanced democracy in many
ways and it would be difficult to
reverse that trend.
Boy was I wrong.
But I digress.

Where were we? Oh
yea, separation of
church and state.
Separation of church and state
in a democracy is a uniquely
American concept, first put for-
ward by Thomas Jefferson in the
late 1700's if I remember cor-
rectly.
The Anglican Church (Church
of England) in The Bahamas is
actually our Church of State.
The role of the Church is mostly
ceremonial but where it becomes
an issue for your not so humble
blogger is when the church,
Anglican or otherwise, becomes
directly involved in political par-
tisanship. But to discuss political
issues and matters of ethics
where Parliamentarians and
politicians are concerned, etc, is
perfectly acceptable.
The more voices holding our
government and opposition
accountable the better.
But fear not, we have a docu-
ment titled The Bahamas Inde-
pendence Order 1973, also
known as The Bahamas Consti-
tution. While it is silent on the
role of tle Church in affairs of
State, their right to free speech
and association is guaranteed
just like the rest of us.
'In the case of comments made
by Rev Humes that I read in the
local print media, I think we
have more to fear about what

istry officials that her contract
was only for a year, and now
she is no longer needed.
"At the time I worked for
the youth department, I went
to the bank and I got a loan of
$10,000," she said, adding that
the loan was only extended
due to her work ethic, as she
initially didn't qualify.
"So now I'm left with my
bank payment,' my rent, my
cable and other things," she
said. However, she was confi-
dent that she would rebound
from her present circumstance.
Another young Bahamian
entrepreneur also spoke pub-
licly of his contract not being
renewed. Reginald Minnis,
told the crowd that he and a
crew of Bahamian employees,
were contracted to clean
parks. However, when his con-
tract expired in June, it was
not renewed by the govern-
ment, and the new contractor
has replaced his Bahamian
crew of five with Haitian
workers.
"I have a wife, I have three
kids and this was helping me a
lot," he said.
Mr Minnis told the audience
that in pursuit of his profes-
sion, he even took out a loan
for equipment, however, now
he said, he has concluded that
this new administration has
"no love for the Bahamians."
Addressing criticism that the
PLP has not accepted the
results of the last election by
remaining in campaign mode,
Mr Christie declared, "We
must and we will speak out for
the rights of Bahamians."
While, PLP Senator Jerome
Fitzgerald told the crowd that
in stopping and reviewing so
many contracts, and especially
small contracts, the FNM gov-
ernment is stopping regular
hardworking Bahamians from
"sitting at the table of pros-
perity."
Mr Christie in his conclud-
ing remarks told the eager
audience that, "any reasonable
Bahamian should be alarmed
by the dog-eat-dog cannibalis-
tic actions of the FNM gov-
ernment, during its first few
week in office.",'

The progranune's objective
is to encourage students' inter-
est in a lifelong career in the
hospitality industry. Four Sea-
sons Resoi t' gec ral manager,
James Kostecky, met with the
students before they began their
internships and shared with
each student his personal career
experience.
Mr Kosteecky s first position
in the hotel industry was in the
housekeeping department and
he worked his way up over the
years to become gene al man-


ager.
He told the interns that if
they work hard, there is a world
of
opportunity at theii finger-
tips.
The management said sever-
al students have already
expressed an interest in becom-
ing full-time employees when
the programme ends on August
10.
"We had so many students
interested in participating in the
programme that next year we


are thinking about splitting the
programme into two sessions to
give more students a chance,"
said Barbara Conliffe, human
resources co-ordinator at Four
Seasons.
Since the beginning of 2007,
there have been 12 managerial
promotions at the resort, a very
positive sign of employee devel-
opment, management said.

moted three times in three
years.
Ms McKenzie will bring her
acquired expertise to Four Sea-
sons Resort Aviara, in Califor-
nia, when she transfers this year
as the assistant director of IT,"
said the Four Seasons in a state-
ment.
Candis Dorsett has also been
promoted several times since
she began working at the resort.
Ms Dorsett started her career
as a purchasing administrative
assistant when the resort
opened. She is now the direc-
tor of purchasing.
"Ms Dorsett also graduated
from Four Seasons Resort man-
agement training course; Exuma
U. This locally developed initia-
tive was created to nurture the
talents of employees who excel in
their roles," said the statement.
"The 12-week intensive pro-
gramme takes students through
the essentials of being an effec-
tive and efficient manager. Sub-
jects covered during the training
include problem solving, using
effective communication skills,
handling guest complaints and
cultural diversity."

* CAYMAN ISLANDS
George Town
FIVE Cuban migrants who
escaped from a Cayman Islands
detention centre have been
recaptured after eluding author-
ities for about a day, the gov-
ernment said Tuesday, accord-
ing to Associated Press.
Police and immigration offi-
cers detained the five Cubans
roughly 24 hours after they
escaped from the facility,
according to a government
statement. The escape is still


under investigation and details
were not disclosed.
Illegal migrants are brought
to the detention center in
Grand Cayman, where most of
the population lives, while they
wait to be repatriated or their
asylum claims are reviewed.
Cuban migrants who set foot
on Cayman shores are general-
ly returned home..If they do not
land, they are monitored but
are usually permitted to contin-
ue their journey.

dency is 150 miles south of Cuba.

Three murders Food stores checked after food recall in US


are committed

in 36 hours

FROM page one
count, there were 49 mur-
ders for the year," said
Paula Mae Lockhart of St
Francis Xavier Cathedral.
"Obviously this is a situa-
tion of epic proportions,
and from a spiritual point
of view, the Church is com-
ing together to say to the
enemy, 'enough is
enough."'
According to Chief
Superintendent of Police
Hulan Hanna, murder
number 48 occurred
sometime after 11 pm
Tuesday in the Yellow
Elder Gardens subdivi-
sion. Police received
information regarding a
shooting in the vicinity of.
Derby Road, in the rear
of house number 233.
Upon arrival, police
found a 54-year-old male
resident of the area, lying
with an "injury to the
back."
"We do not know how
or what was used to deliv-
er the (fatal) injury,
whether it was a gunshot
or some other type of
offensive weapon ... but
we do know that this man
met his death unlawfully,"
Mr Hanna said. Police are
following significant leads
on this case, but asked for
the public's assistance.
Around seven hours lat-
er, another man's life was
taken in the area of Pride
Estates, a new subdivision
off Tonique Williams
Darling Highway. Mr
Hanna said police
responded to reports of
gunshots sometime after
6am.
Once on the scene, offi-
cers found a lifeless male
with braided hair, "lying
bare back", clad only in
boxer shorts, with multi-
ple gunshot injuries to his
upper andlower back
area. A victim of an
apparent "domestic dis-
pute", police identified
him as Carl Russell, a 33-
year-old resident of the
Chippingham area.
"This.young man (is
believed) to have come to
the scene in a Wyndham
vehicle, and he went
inside the house where a
female and male, and per-
haps others, were staying,
and a confrontation fol-
lowed between himself
and another man, which
resulted in this person
being shot," said Chief
Supt. Hanna.
A woman in her early
thirties who is believed to
be another victim of the
domestic squabble, was
taken away from the
scene by ambulance with
some "injuries to the head
area that. might have been
a result of a gun butt."
Police are following sig-
nificant leads in both
murders and the attack on
the woman, but are asking
for the public's assistance
with any information
linked to these cases.
Father Turnquest of St
Francis Xavier Cathedral
urged religious leaders
from all denominations to
work together in an effort
to reach out to troubled
young men who are per-
petrating violent crimes.
"Violence is a by-prod-
uct of something, either
troubled homes or trou-
bled communities...lack of
education sometimes. I
think for a long time the
country has been focusing
on helping (troubled)
youth. Maybe now what
we need to do is have a
multi-tasking of help, in
all areas."
In August 2006, the
country's murder count
was 35; in August 2005,
the murder count was at


28. It is not yet August
and already 49 persons
are dead this year.
According to officials, if
the murder rate continues
to escalate at the current
pace the Bahamas is on
track to reach an unprece-
dented number of 80 mur-
ders by the end of this
year.

the hospitalisation of four per
sons so far traced to hotu
lisin poisoning associated with
eating Castleberry's Hot Dog
Chili Sauce.
The suspect food is made by a
Georgia based company,
Castleberry's Food Products.
The goods include various types
of "hot dog chili sauce", stew.
corned beef hash and "Natural
Balance Eatables" dog food.
"You're talking tens of minil
lions of cans that may have been
involved," said Robert Brackett,
director of the Food and Drug
Administration's Centre for
Food Safety and Applied Nutri-
tion, according to the A.ssocial
ed Press.
When contacted by Ihe Tri-
bune yesterday. neither Thomp-
son's Trading Co. nor Light-
bourn Trading, two major
Bahamian wholesalers, reported
stocking Castleberry products.
However, it is not yet clear
whether the products may have
entered the country by other
grocery outlets.
Botulism is a rare but serious
paralytic illness caused by a


nerve toxin. According to ileO
Federal Drug Administration
press release on the recall
symptoms of botulism poisoning
in humans can begin from six
hours to two weeks after eating
food that contains the toxin.
"Symptoms may include dou-
ble vision, blurred vision, droop
ing eyelids, slurred speech, dil
faculty swallowing, and muscle
weakness that moves progres-
sively down the body, affecting
the shoulders first then descend-
ing to the upper arms, lower
arms, thighs, calves, etcetera.
"Botulism poisoning can also
cause paralysis of the bicathing
muscles which can result in
death unless assistance with
breathing (mechanical ventila
tion) is provided." it said.
Should consumers find they
have purchased any of these
products they are advised by
the IDA to throw them away
immediately

get a license anywhere in the
world you have to go through a
process. All of a sudden (ille-
gal immigrants) have a vehicle
and they're driving (around
town). There has to be a leak-
age in the system or someone is
selling out the country," Mr
Grant told The Tribune.
According to Mr Grant, this
was the breaking point for him
and a number of other 'Brilan-
ders who think government
needs to step in and help locals
on the island.
"We need to address the (ille-
gal immigrant) problem on Har-
bour Island it's gotten out of
hand and we need help imme-
diately," Mr Grant told The Tri-
'bune in an exclusive interview'
yesterday. "There's an epidem-
ic running throughout the island,
and we need the police, defense
force and immigration to come
and address this. Everyday
about 10 new faces are popping
up on the island, and you know,
we can't handle it."
Mr Grant claimed that illegal
immigrants are involved in pros-
titution and live in unsanitary
conditions. He also claimed that'
local landlords are renting apart-
ments to immigrants without
proper "papers."
"We want to see health cer-
tificates and proper work per-
mits. Because one of them have
work permits and 60 of them
living in one house, you know
that's not right," Mr Grant
added.
Mr Grant contends that work


Harbour Island

permits being issued in the area
are granted for farm labourers,
but immigrants are being hired
for construction work, carpen-
try, and masonry because busi-
ness can pay them "little to
nothing."
The tiny island has a police
station with 12 stationed offi-
cers, but Mr Grant claims that
he only sees four or five "work-
ing the beat" on the island.
"We need an increase to
police officers to assist immi-
gration and customs on this
island," Mr Grant said. "Gov-
ernment needs to find a way to
regulate these construction com-
panies (hiring illegal immi-
grants) and landlords who allow
illegal immigrants to live in their
homes. Something has to be
done, man, and I for-one -will
speak out against it until my
tongue is cut out."
Mr Jolton Johnson, adminis-
trator for North Eleuthera, Har-
bour Island and Spanish Wells
told The Tribune that he has
encountered many illegal immi-
grants attempting to obtain cer-
tificates of identity and
travel documents by fraudulent
means.
He also noted that the surge
in illegal Haitian and Jamaican
immigrants is due to lack of
immigration "manpower" in
the waters surrounding the
island.
"Two main problems that I've
seen since I've been (in office),
the immigration department is


understaffed; two, you have
business persons in North
Eleuthera employing these per-
sons," he said. "It's difficult to
monitor the situation in North
Eleuthera."


The government representa-
tive for the area, House Speak-
er Alvin Smith, was in Cabinet
on Tuesday and could not be
reached for comment up to
press time.


Viktor Kozeny

FROM page one

eric Bourke Jr and David Pinker-
ton bribed senior government offi- .
cials of the former Soviet Republic
of Azerbaijan. According to US
authorities, in 1997 Kozney began
directing others to purchase priva-
tization vouchers and requisite
options on behalf of his compa-
nies, Oily Rock and Minaret. These
vouchers and options were pur-
chased using millions of dollars of
cash-fhfit asflown into Azerbai-
jan on Kozeny's private jet and on
planes he chartered.
In his affidavit, Kozeny claims
that the US government and even
the CIA were fully aware of his
investments in Azerbaijan and the
role of the Azeri officials, which N VIKTOR KOZENY
was one of the reasons he never
felt concerned about the FCPA. In
the affidavit, he claims that he was aware of the FCPA and his need
to guard himself against violating the statute. He also said that he
never felt that he had to be concerned about violating the FCPA
because he was told that it didn't apply to foreigners, being that he
was neither a US citizen nor a resident.
In the affidavit, Kozeny claims that when US authorities began
investigating his Azerbaijan operation he fully co-operated. He stat-
ed in the affidavit that he never felt that he was a target for prose-
cution even when his alleged co-conspirators were being arrested.
In the affidavit he stated that he only came to realise his fate
when he was arrested on October 5, 2005 at his home in Lyford Cay.
On Monday Kozeny's defence began its submissions over a
habeas corpus application, challenging the request for his extradi-
tion to the United States.
Last September Magistrate Carolita Bethel approved Kozeny's
extradition to the US where he is wanted to face bribery and mon-
ey laundering charges. Kozeny, 44, was released from Fox Hill
prison on $300,000 bail in April.

Spirit launches new

service from Fort

Lauderdale to Freeport


SPIRIT Airlines has
announced a daily non-stop ser-
vice between its Fort Laud-
erdale base and Grand Bahama
beginning December 13.
Service will be via the Grand
Bahama International Airport
in Freeport.
Grand Bahama is Spirit's 21st
destination in the Bahamas,
Caribbean and Latin America
region, and its 37th destination
overall.
In addition to non-stop service
from its Fort Lauderdale base,
Spirit also will offer connecting
service to Grand Bahama from
its domestic network.
Spirit serves all routes with
its .fleet of Airbus aircraft, the
youngest in the Americas
according to the company.
"We are very pleased to offer
our terrific low-fare service to
one of the world's most beautiful
destinations," said Barry Biffle,
Spirit Airlines' chief marketing
officer. "We're looking forward
to taking travellers to enjoy
Grand Bahama Island, and, like-
wise, Spirit is providing an excel-
lent low fare option to Bahami-
ans to travel and enjoy the


* MORE Spirit aircraft will be coming to the Bahamas


amenities of South Florida or
any of our other destinations."
* According to Tourism and
Aviation Minister Neko Grant,
"We are delighted to welcome to
Grand Bahama island, the daily
service of Spirit Airlines between
Freeport, the island's capital city,
and Fort Lauderdale. Its addi-
tion will not only broaden our
access to the South Floridian
market, which drives so much
of our business, but will also
mean greater accessibility to oth-
er markets served by Spirit."
Mr Grant added that Grand
Bahama "is home to some of the


world's best beaches, and has
ideal conditions for boating, fish-
ing, diving and a host of authen-
tically Bahamian experiences.
This boost in airlift to Grand
Bahama island will certainly play
a key role in stimulating the
island's stopover market.
"We are pleased to establish
this new relationship with Spir-
it Airlines and the potential for
additional non-stop service to
Grand Bahama island from oth-
er Spirit-originating markets is
certainly noteworthy. We look
forward to a lasting impact on
our tourism industry."

Sailing programme leads list of


THE Ministry of Educa-
tion, Youth, Sports & Cul-
ture is sponsoring many pro-
grammes for the youth of


the nation this summer.
Among them is the Native
Bahamian Sloop Sailing
Programme being held in


Montagu Bay.
The programme began July
9 and closes on Saturday, July
28, with an exciting fun day and


"C" class competitive racing by
the student participants.
Organisers said the pro-
gramme, under the direction of
Dr Philip McPhee (consultant)
and co-ordinated by Sidney
Forbes and Sandi Treco, has
been extremely successful and
truly a learning and fun experi-
ence for the students.
The students were exposed
to many aspects of Bahamian
sloop sailing. They had the
opportunity to visit Phillips Sail-
makers, where owner Larry
Phillips demonstrated how the
sails are made for Bahamian
sailboats.
They also visited the yard of
boat builder Aulice "Tommy"
Thompson, who showed them
how masts and booms,were
constructed, sanded and fin-
ished.
The students also had the
opportunity to watch the
rebuilding of a well known "A"
class Bahamian sloop (The


Lucayan Lady) and Mr Thomp-
son explained the building
process to them.
The students,were able to
meet, chat and spend the day


* AT Phillips Sailmakers


with well known skipper/boat
captain Clement Fox who
talked about his many experi-
ences as a captain.
They also had the opportu-
nity to hear from Captain
Joshua Greene and Sidney
Forbes.
Special teaching sessions on
the history of sloop sailing in
the Bahamas, the rules of sail-
ing, safety in and around the
water, famous boat builders,
icons of Bahamian sloop sail-
ing, outstanding boat captains,
regattas and their economic
benefits to; our islands, the dif-
ferent classes of boats (A, B, C,
D and E), the different building
styles (ie Long Island, Ragged
Island or Exuma), parts of the
boat and how to prepare the
"C" class sloops for actual com-
petition were conducted by Dr

The students were also shown
how to tie knots, how to rig the
"C" class sloops, put the sails
on the masts and properly
anchor the boat after sailing.
After every instructional class
session the students were
allowed to race/sail.
They sailed every day in
Montagu Harbour and were
taught how to ride the pry, hold
the tiller stick in order to steer
the boat and went through
maneuvers like tacking and
reaching off the wind.
It was during this session that
they were taught not just how to
win but how to respond to loos-
ing.
"Hopefully, next year with
the blessing of the Minister of
State, Mr Byran Woodside, the
sailing programme will extend
to several of the family islands
under the capable instruction
of the sailing community and
the ministry," the organizers
said in a statement.

Turkish foreign minister hints



he will run for president again


* TURKEY
Istanbul
FOREIGN Minister Abdul-
lah Gul hinted Wednesday that
he would resume his bid to
become president, despite fierce
opposition from Turkey's mili-
tary-backed, secular establish-
ment, according to Associated
Press.
Gul's party won a strong par-
liamentary majority in weekend
general elections, called early
to defuse political tension ignit-
ed by the Islamic-rooted par-
ty's first attempts to present Gul
as a presidential candidate. At
the time, the army threatened to
intervene to safeguard secular
principles.
But following his party's re-
election, Gul indicated he
would run again.
"I cannot turn a blind eye to
the will of people," Gul said


Candidate from Islamist party to
resume bid despite opposition


Wednesday. "The demand of
the people is clear."
The new Parliament's first
task will be to choose a new
president, whose post is largely
ceremonial, but who has power
to veto government appoint-
ments and legislative bills.
Opposition leader Deniz
Baykal said Tuesday that the
future president must respect
the constitution, which prohibits
mixing religion with politics -
signalling that his party's objec-
tion to Gul remains.
Mustafa Ozyurek, a promi-
nent member of Baykal's
Republican People's Party, said
the party would not support
Gul's candidacy.


Baykal's party boycotted the
parliamentary presidential elec-
tion process in May, depriving
the ruling party of the support
needed to elect Gul as presi-
dent. Gul then abandoned his
bid.
Prime Minister Recep Tayyip
Erdogan called general elec-
tions for July 22, four months
earlier than scheduled, to find a
way out of the deadlock.
On Wednesday, Erdogan
reiterated his party's willingness
to compromise, but said oppo-
sition parties should take into
account the fact that his party
won a strong mandate.
"Compromise does not mean
the minority imposing its will

"The language of the people is
clear."
Erdogan also said it was up to
Gul to decide on whether to
run.


"I have respect for his deci-
sion he was treated unjustly,"
Erdogan said, in reference to
Gul's earlier unsuccessful bid.
His party won more than 46

Arsonists are blamed for



fires in Italy and Greece


* ROME
ITALIAN authorities said
Wednesday they have discov-
ered incendiary devices at the
site of a blaze where a firefight-
ing plane crashed earlier this
week, lending weight to fears
that most of the fires ravaging
Italy and Greece have been
started deliberately, according
to Associated Press.
Authorities in the two coun-


tries say arsonists are behind
fires that have devastated thou-
sands of hectares (acres) of
Greek forest since June and
which have left firefighters bat-
tling to contain blazes across
central and southern Italy.
Giuseppe Vadala, head of an
investigative unit with Italy's
forestry service, said officers
found 'crude incendiary devices
on the side of a road near
Acciano, in the Abruzzo region,


where a Canadair firefighting
plane crashed Monday, killing
the pilot and seriously injuring
the co-pilot.
Vadala declined to give
details on the devices.
While arsonists have been
active in other heat-affected
countries this summer, Italy and
Greece are among those suffer-
ing the most, Vadala told The
Associated Press in a telephone
interview.


"In other countries, like the
United States and Canada, nat-
ural causes are more frequent,
even though there are always
cases of blazes that are started
by negligence or on purpose,"
he said.
In Italy arsonists can spark
fires to clear land for pasture, as
part of criminal vendettas or to
create new construction areas.
Italy passed a law in 2000 ban-
ning construction for 10 years
in any burnt-down areas.
But the rule is not always
enforced, and forestry officials
have recently closed down two
hotels one in the north and
one in the south that were
built over the ashes of forests
ravaged by fires, Vadala said.
"(The law) has had some
deterring effect, but more must
be done to enforce it, as many
towns don't keep track well
enough of fires," he said.
Constructors have also been
regarded as likely culprits in
Greece, the only EU country
that lacks a nationwide land reg-
istry which means that areas
designated as forest land have
sometimes been re-designated
once the forests were gone.
Officials in the two countries
have been struggling to find
those responsible and on
Wednesday, the Italian forestry
created a phone number for cit-
izens to report suspected arson-
ists.
Vadala said one person was
arrested Wednesday in Matera,
in the southern Basilicata
region, for starting a fire. A 28-
year-old construction worker
was arrested Tuesday in Sar-
dinia and another worker was
apprehended south of Rome as
they were caught trying to start
fires, the ANSA news agency
reported.
In Greece, a 39-year-old sus-
pect was arrested Tuesday and
charged with setting a fire near

outside the Sicilian town of Messina, southern Italy, Wednesday,

scattered fires across central and southern Italy, which
authorities believe are largely caused by arsonists. On
Tuesday two people died in a fire which broke out in the
Gargano peninsula in the region of Puglia.


the Athens-Corinth national
road.
The number and magnitude
of fires raging across the coun-
try was such on Tuesday that
the head of Italy's Civil Protec-
tion said it was the country's
worst day ever in for fires.
While officials said the situa-
tion was improving, tanker
planes were still flying across
Italy on Wednesday, putting out
a blaze in the Sicilian city of
Messina, ANSA said, while oth-
er fires were reported in Sar-
dinia, Abruzzo and other

regions.
Scattered fires continued to
rage in the Gargano peninsula,
a spur of land in the north of
the Puglia region, the heel of
the Italian boot, where the situ-
ation has been more critical.
Two elderly people died
there Tuesday, according to the
Civil Protection, with the fires
also destroying hundreds of
hectares (acres) of forest and
causing hundreds of residents
and tourists to flee to the beach,
where they were rescued by
boats.


.- Kenyan aristocrat to



present murder defence


* KENYA
Nairobi
A DESCENDANT of one of
Kenya's most famous white set-
tlers must mount a defense in a
murder case that has stoked
racial tension in this East
African nation, a court ruled
Wednesday, according to Asso-
ciated Press. ,
Thomas Cholmondeley, who
is in his late 30s, has acknowl-


edged fatally shooting a black
man on his vast estate last May,
but says it was in self-defence.
He could face the death penal-
ty if convicted.
Kenya allows courts to end a
trial before the defendant pre-
sents a case if the judge find
prosecutors have not shown
enough evidence. But on
Wednesday, Justice Muga
Apondi said Cholmondeley
must present a defence.
"After carefully considering
the evidence adduced I have
come to the conclusion that the
prosecution has established pri-
ma facie case to require him put
on his defense," Apondi said.
Cholmondeley's lawyer, Fred
Ojiambo said he plans to call
seven witnesses.
The case marks the second
time in just over a year that
Cholmondeley killed a black
man on the family's sprawling
farm in the Rift Valley a
region dubbed "Happy Valley"
because of the decadent
lifestyles of its colonial settlers.
Charges were dropped in the
earlier case, prompting protests
that Cholmondeley got special
treatment.
Cholmondeley was educated
at Eton, one of Britain's most
exclusive schools.
Both cases have exposed
deep tensions about the British
presence in Kenya, with many
citizens resentful that the best
land was taken over by the


British government during colo-
nial times. After Kenya's inde-
pendence in 1963, many depart-
ing'settlers transferred land to
Africans, with Britain under-
writing some of the costs.
Some settlers, including Chol-
mondeley's family, kept their
land and became Kenyan citi-
zens. But now, an increasing
number of Kenyans are saying
the land simply doesn't belong
to whites.
Cholmondeley is the great-
grandson of the third Baron
Delamere, one of Kenya's first
major white settlers more than a
century ago. The farm, to which
Cholmondeley is the only heir,
is largely ungated and has been
estimated to be up to 100,000
acres.
The case has received intense
media scrutiny because of Chol-
mondeley's aristocratic heritage
and his grandfather's place in
Kenyan lore. The fourth Baron
Delamere was married to Diana
Broughton, whose lover was
shot in the head on the outskirts
of Nairobi in the 1940s.
Broughton's first husband,
Jock Broughton, was tried for
murder and acquitted, an
episode that inspired the book
"White Mischief," which also
was made into a 1987 film star-
ring Charles Dance and Greta
Scacchi. The book highlighted
the free-spending, often alco-
holic ways of some of the early
colonialists in Kenya.

Did you know that ever since
Cleopatra's timL ,.Eg.ptian women
had already used a type of tampon?
Interesting isn't it? In every culture
and generation, women have many
responsibilities and obligations. Today, women live
active and stressful lives. During menstruation
days, sanitary pads can be uncomfortable if you
want to exercise, play a sport, or go to the beach.
Tampons have become a highly effective solution
to this problem because they give you the liberty
to enjoy hL I'L- ji'iv'ilC- %thout worrying about
your period. Playtex' tampons are comfortable
and trustworthy because they slide in easily and can

crest Thursday.
Windsor home to Windsor
Castle has been affected but is
thought likely to avoid heavy
flooding because of flood
defences. London is also expect-
ed to escape.
"It's impacted the fun part of
the trip; it hasn't impacted the
business part," said Susan Peter-
son, a literature professor from
Curry College in Quincy, Mass-
achusetts, who was attending a
conference at Oxford.
Oxford's renowned 38 col-
leges, where the academic year
ended for undergraduates in
mid-June, were spared flood
damage. Its many buildings -
particularly the university's
Christ Church Cathedral con-
tinued to draw tourists Wednes-
day. ...
"We've been here for about a
week and a half," said William
Brugger from Rexburg, Idaho.
"We haven't really been affect-
ed, except for the ability to take
trains. We would have liked to
have gone to Stratford," he said
of Shakespeare's birthplace.


Many trains across the regions
were cancelled or suspended.
Streets in Oxford's flooded
areas about a mile from the
university were inundated by
as much as four feet of water.
At the flooded George Inn
pub on Botley Road, a sign pro-
claimed: "Open for business -
cotne hell or high water."
"It's quite good fun, actually.
People are much nicer to each
other than they normally are,"
said Martin Oliver, 47, an
employee at the Courtney
Pianos store.
Britain has had one of its
wettest summers on record a
sharp contrast to last summer,
which was one of its driest and
hottest. Nearly five inches of
rain fell in some areas on Friday
alone. More rain fell Saturday,
Sunday and Monday.
More rain was forecast for
Thursday.
Anthony O'Rourke said he
was resigned to the flooding. "If
*you buy a house next to a
stream, or even a braided net-
work of them, what can you


expect?" O'Rourke said.
Waters receded upstream in
the hard-hit cities of Tewkes-
bury and Gloucester where
nearly 350,000 people were
without fresh water. Authori-
ties said it could be up to two
weeks before services were
restored after the water treat-
ment plant flooded.
Prime Minister Gordon
Brown visited Tewkesbury on
Wednesday afternoon.
One man had died in the
floods and another was still
missing.
A man drowned in Bedford
after jumping into the swollen
River Great Ouse. He was
pulled from the water by res-
cuers, but was later pronounced
dead at a local hospital, Bed-
fordshire police said.
Another man was reported
missing in the floods, Glouces-
tershire police said. Mitchell
Taylor, 19, from Tewkesbury,
was reported missing shortly
after leaving a bar in the del-
uged town in the early hours of
Saturday.

* DALLAS
A SERIES of explosions at a
gas facility sent flaming debris
raining onto highways and
buildings near downtown Dal-
las on Wednesday and serious-
ly injured at least two people,
according to Associated Press.
Authorities evacuated a half-
mile (0.8 kilometer) area sur-
rounding the Southwest Indus-
trial Gases, Inc. facility and
shut down parts nearby Inter-
states 30 and 35. Video footage
showed numerous small fires
burning in the area as stacks of
gas cylinders caught fire and
exploded.
The canisters held acetylene
and propane gas, said Texas
Commission on Enviornmental
Quality spokeswoman Andrea
Morrow. It was not immediate-
ly clear what caused them
begin exploding around 9:30
a.m.
About a dozen cars burned
in a nearby parking lot and a
grassy areas of a highway
median.
"I thought it was artillery. It
was just coming just boom,
boom, boom," said witness
Tony Love, a former Army sol-
dier.
At the edge of the evacua-
tion zone is Dallas County's
main jail and criminal courts
building, but operations con-
tinued there uninterrupted,
said Deputy Michael Ortiz of
the Dallas County Sheriff's
Department.
The Environmental Protec-
tion Agency's emergency
responders were on the way to
the scene, said Dave Bary, a
spokesman for the agency's
regional office. He said they
will assist in monitoring the air,
but had no information yet.
Parkland Hospital
spokesman Robert Behrens
said two people injured by the
explosions had been brought to
his hospital in serious condi-
tion.

JUDGE PARKER


APARTMENT 3-G


MARVIN


NON SEQUITUR


Your right-hand opponent opens
with One Club, neither side vulnera-
ble. What would you bid with each
of the following six hands?
1. 4AQJI0 V KJ85 Q96 K3
2. AQ84 V 6 KQJ73 + K82
3. 4 KQJ9852 V 10 Q874 4 6
4. +AQ853 K962 K103 4
5. + KQJ9852 V 10 AQJ4 4 6
6. + A94 V AJ QJ983 + AJ7


1. Double. This tells partner that
you have the values for an opening
bid and support for the unbid suits.
With excellent support for both
majors, the double is preferable to
overcalling with one notrump, which
is a reasonable alternative.
2. One diamond. This is some-
what of an underbid, since an over-
call on the one-level more often than
not denotes less than an opening bid.
However, a takeout double to show
your high-card strength is not an
option, since your partner might
respond in hearts and create an insol-
uble problem. If the bidding devel-
ops favorably, you plan to bid spades
at your next turn and in that way
belatedly show both the strength and
distribution of your hand.
3. Three spades. This is a pre-


emptive bid pure and simple, and
indicates a weak hand with long
spades. It is essentially an effort to
deprive the opponents of bidding
space and make it difficult for them
to reach their best contract.
4. Double. This should work out
better in*the long run than one spade,
which is the alternative bid. In such
situations you weigh the advantage
of doubling and possibly finding a
heart (or diamond) fit against the
advantage of overcalling with one
spade. A majority of experts would
favor the double.
5. Four spades. This leap to game
combines the virtue of pre-emption
with a legitimate chance of making
the contract. The jump to four puts a
lot of pressure on the opponents and
might cause them to make the wrong
decision.
6. One notrump. This is by far the
best way of describing your hand.
True, you have the high-card values
for a double, but with only five cards
in the majors, notrump is by far the
better choice. The notrump overcall
shows 15 to 18 points, balanced dis-
tribution and at least one club stop-
per. That's what you have, and you
can deliver that message in one fell
swoop.


HOW many words of four letters or
more can you make from the letters
shown here?
In making a word, each letter may be
used once only. Each must contain the
centre letter and there must be at least oe
nine-letter word in the list. No plurals or
verb forms ending in s, no words with initial
capitals and no words with a hyphen or
apostrophe are permitted. Thie first word
of a phrase is permitted (eg inkjet in

Naval expedition sets sail to stake Russia's



claims to vast area of Arctic sea bed


* MOSCOW
A RUSSIAN naval expe-
dition has set off for the
North Pole to explore the
bottom of the Arctic Ocean
and stake Russia's claim to
oil and natural gas riches
under the sea bed, according
to Associated Press.
A nuclear-powered ice-
breaker and a huge research
ship set sail from the north-
ern city of Murmansk on
Tuesday for the North Pole,
where scientists expect to
find evidence that the sea
bed is geographically linked
to Russia and thus part of its
territory, expedition leader
Artur Chilingarov said Tues-
day in televised remarks.
"The Arctic is Russian,"
Chilingarov, a member of


Icebreaker and research

ship head for North Pole


parliament and Russia's most
famous explorer, told state-
controlled NTV before set-
ting sail. "We must prove the
North Pole is an extension
of the Russian coastal shelf."
Two mini-submarines will
be launched Sunday from
one of the ships to confirm
the work of an earlier Russ-
ian expedition, which said it
found the link between the
Eurasian continent and the
underwater Lomonosov
Ridge that runs across the
North Pole.


Russian scientists have
long maintained that
Moscow has a right to the
mineral riches beneath a
chunk of the Arctic sea bed
the size of Germany, France
and Italy combined. The
region is estimated to con-
tain up to 10 billion cubic
meters of hydrocarbons,
along with diamonds and
metal ores.
Under international law,
the five Arctic countries -
Russia, the United States,
Canada, Norway and Den-


mark (through Greenland) -
control an economic zone
within 200 miles (320 kilo-
meters) of their continental
shelf. But the definition of
the limits of that shelf are in
dispute.
Russia first laid claim to
wide swaths of undersea
Arctic territory in the United
Nations in 2001. But the four
other polar countries have
objected to this bid. Danish
scientists maintained the
Lomonosov Ridge is an
extension of Greenland,
making Denmark another
claimant to the North Pole
and its environs.
Dividing the undersea land
is difficult and controversial.
The Russian expedition may
take samples of the sea bed
to bolster its claims that the
area is an extension of an


underwater ridge linked to
Russia's mainland.
Under President Vladimir
Putin, Russia, which has
enormous energy resources,
has aspired to restore its
clout as a global power.
Environmentalists say
global warming is opening
up the Arctic to new eco-
nomic pressures, as receding
ice exposes new areas of
ocean and tundra to explo-
ration and ice-free zones
result in shorter shipping
lanes.
After reaching the sea
floor under the North Pole,
Russia's mini-subs will leave
a titanium capsule contain-
ing the Russian flag, Anatoly
Sagalevich, the subs' design-
er, told NTV. The subs will
also collect specimens of
Arctic flora and fauna and


videotape the dives, which
will be broadcast live via a
satellite, he said.
"Russian submarines will
be the first to travel along
the ocean floor under the
North Pole," he claimed,
although Russian, U.S. and
other military submarines
have routinely operated in
the Arctic for decades.
The Soviet Union had
extensive Arctic and Antarc-
tic research and exploration
programs, and Soviet polar
explorers were showered
with accolades and hailed as
national heroes.
Those programs shrank
dramatically in the wake of
the collapse of the Soviet
Union.
This week's polar cruise is
part of the recent revival of
Russian polar programs.

Fidelity developi


funds


for international investing



Company set to apply for US$ allocations in third and fourth quarters, as it moves to exploit

exchange control changes and give Bahamians more choice, flexibility and greater returns


* By NEIL HARTNELL
Tribune Business Editor
idelity Merchant Bank &
Trust is "currently devel-
oping" documents for
two Bahamian dollar
mutual funds that will
give investors access to foreign invest-
ment instruments, its president telling


The Tribune that they were likely to
apply for their first US$ allocations in
the 2007 third and fourth quarters.
Michael Anderson confirmed that
Fidelity Merchant Bank & Trust was
working on the development of two
mutual funds that aim to take advan-
tage of the Government/Central
Bank's decision last year to relax
exchange control restrictions, partic-


ularly the move that allows Bahamian
institutional and retail investors to
invest in equities listed on a recog-
nised exchange via a Bahamian dollar
investment vehicle.
"We're currently developing our
fund documents for two funds that
we will be making available to the
local market," Mr Anderson told The
Tribune.


"We've had them legally reviewed,
and are in the process of finalising.
the documents to send to the Securi-
ties Commission for approval."
Once the funds and their offering
memorandums are approved by the
Securities Commission, the next step
is to apply for them to be listed and
registered on the Bahamas Interna-
tional Securities Exchange (BISX).


I Both these steps are necessary
before Fidelity Merchant Bank &
Trust can apply to the Central Bank,
on-the funds' behalf, for their alloca-
tion of US dollars.

The Spirit of 40,000

tourists for Freeport


* By CARA BRENNEN-
BETHEL
Tribune Business Repqrter
SPIRIT Airlines will begin ser-
vice from Fort Lauderdale to
Grand Bahama at the end of the
year, providing a per annum seat
capacity of 60,000 and a boost for
the island's flagging tourism econ-
omy.
The Ministry of Tourism's
director of airlift, Tyronne
Sawyer, said the impact of the
new service will be tremendous
for Grand Bahama.
"If you look at it, the aircraft
can hold 165 persons and it is dai-
ly service, so that is a seat capac-
ity of 60,000. If you take it by a
load factor of 70 per cent, then it
brings about 40,000 stopovers,"
Mr Sawyer said.
Obviously, however, those
numbers would include the vast
amount of Grand Bahamians who
are likely to take advantage of
Spirit's low fares.
Mr Sawyer added that despite
the challenges created by the
Royal Oasis situation, there are
significant hotel accommodations
on Grand Bahama to accommo-
date the load factor Spirit is
expected to generate.
Mr Sawyer said the arrival of
Spirit will fill an airlift void to
Grand Bahama, considering the
fact that another low-cost carrier,
AirTran, in September will cancel
its Atlanta to Grand Bahama ser-
vice. It has already stopped its
flight between Grand Bahama
and Baltimore, Maryland.
He explained that AirTran


made a business decision to cease
travel to Grand Bahama, so to
compensate,.the Bahamas has
entered into a long-term partner-
ship with Spirit Airlines to ensure
the presence of a low-fare carrier
throughout the country.
"I see great potential for the
Family Islands," Mr Sawyer said
of the possibility for Spirit to
expand service.
Chris Lowe, president of the
Grand Bahama Chamber of
Commerce, told Tribune Busi-
ness that Spirit is basically filling
Air Tran's load.
"What Spirit will definitely
offer is interconnectivity from
major US airports through Ft
Lauderdale to Grand Bahama,"
he added.
However, Mr Lowe stressed
that he would like to see expand-
ed service from larger hubs such
as New'York, Boston and other
major cities.
"That is what we really need,
direct flights, because some peo-
ple don't want to have to change
planes in Florida, they want a
non-stop flight. Spirit will hope-
fully maintain the status quo and
increase visitor arrival rates," Mr
Lowe said.
Spirit said that in addition to
non-stop service from its Fort
Lauderdale base, Spirit also will
offer connecting service to Grand
Bahama from its domestic net-
work. Spirit serves all routes with
its fleet of Airbus aircraft, the
youngest in the Americas.

channel can now say that it
will, at some point, reach every
single visitor coming to the
Bahamas at some point dur-
ing their stay.


He said BTC and NAD's
partnership will begin to
enhance the visitor experience
for visitors arriving at baggage
claim by informing them of a
wealth of experiences and
stores that they can enjoy
while vacationing here.

'Disappointment'


over Port trial's



adjournment


M By NEIL HARTNELL
Tribune Business Editor
The late Edward St
George's. estate is
"extremely disap-
pointed" that the three-day tri-
al over Sir Jack Hayward's
claim to 75 per cent ownership
of the Grand Bahama Port
Authority (GBPA) and Port
Group Ltd did not start yes-
terday as planned, following
its adjournment to next week.
Fred Smith, attorney and
partner at Callender's & Co,
wh6 is representing the St


George estate, told The Tri-
bune: "The plaintiffs are
extremely disappointed that
the trial did not go ahead as
planned.
"They had made arrange-
ments for witnesses from
abroad to travel to Nassau,
court stenographers and hotel
and travel expenses. Tremen-
dous costs have bene incurred
in setting up the trial for today,
and the estate wants to have
their rights vindicated as
quickly as possible."
Mr Smith added: "The
estate is very keen and looks


forward to its day in court next
Tuesday, when we will have
all our witnesses ready, and
intend to prove the estate
owns 50 per cent of the Port
Authority.
"The estate is keen to return
to normality, and end this fight
as soon as possible to get back
into the process of promoting
and developing Freeport for
the benefit of the community,
economy and profits of the
companies.
"The sooner it is ended in
as diplomatic a fashion as pos-
sible, the better."

'Developing' funds for


international investing


FROM page 1

bers of BISX can apply for the
US dollar allocations from the
Central Bank, and Mr Ander-
son said: "In theory, the first
allocation of funds will become
available to broker/dealers this
quarter, before the end of Sep-
tember. Before the end of Sep-
tember, we will apply for our
allocation."
The Central Bank, though,
has imposed restrictions on the
amount of US dollars that will
be made available to Bahami-
an broker/dealers for this pur-
pose, with the amount released
not to exceed $25 million per
annum or 5 per cent of the pre-
vious year-end external reserve
balance.
This means that a maximum
of only $6.25 million will be
released every quarter. But
because there are likely to be
two broker/dealers currently
working on such opportunities
Fidelity and CFAL these
US$ allocations will have to be
split evenly, meaning each can
only get a maximum of $3.125
million per quarter.
Mr Anderson, though,
explained to The Tribune that
the broker/dealers could apply
for their US dollar allocation at
any time during the quarter.
As a result, Fidelity was likely
to apply for its US dollar allo-
cations in the 2007 third and
fourth quarters "within a week
of each other, so we can build
scale more quickly.
"The chances are we will use
both allocations quickly to
strengthen the funds," he
added, meaning they would be
able to access $6.25 million
total in US dollar funding by
year-end.
Mr Anderson said the Fideli-
ty funds, after going to market
to Bahamian investors, would
target "a diverse range of
investments".
"These funds will be avail-
able to different people in the
market," he said. "They're
retail-focused funds. The min-


* KEITH DAVIES


imum investment will be at a
level where most investors will
be able to participate, and
based on their risk/return
requirements, they will be able
to choose between different
investment types.
"We believe there is a
greater demand for these for-
eign securities than there is a
supply of US dollars from the
Central Bank," Mr Anderson
said, indicating that the two
funds were likely to be over-
subscribed by Bahamian
investors due to the limited US
dollars available.
Effectively, Bahamian
investors will be purchasing a
Bahamian dollar security or
interest in a pooled basket of
investment securities denomi-
nated in a foreign currency by
investing in the Fidelity funds.
"What the Bahamian
investor gets in benefits is that
he does not have to pay the
investment currency market
premium [12.5 per cent] to par-
ticipate in the international
markets," Mr Anderson said
of the funds' advantages.
"There's no foreign
. exchange cost on conversion
from Bahamian dollars to US
.dollars, although there is still
the 1.5 per cent in stamp tax to
pay on the transactions."
Mr Anderson said the funds,
coupled with the exchange
control amendments,, would


give Bahamian institutional
and retail investors diversifi-
cation, and access to a greater
breadth and depth of invest-
ment choices abroad.
They would no longer be
confined to the undeveloped
Bahamian capital markets, and
the potential risk if the mar-
ket 'went south', as it was
unlikely all global capital mar-
kets would do so, especially at
the same time.
Mr Anderson said that while
investors only had five banking
stock options to choose from in
the Bahamian capital markets,
there were unlimited such
options abroad, enabling peo-
ple to spread their risk and
diversify, plus seek out higher
returns.
Choice and flexibility will be
the order of the day, the Fideli-
ty Merchant Bank & Trust
president said.
""It's really the ability to
diversify their investments out-
side the Bahamas, and into a
range of investments," Mr
Anderson said. "It's diversifi-
cation in terms of the markets
you can participate in, as well
as the underlying investment
options.
"It's a diversification play
and an opportunity play, as
investors will be able to take
advantage of opportunities not
presently available here."
Bahamians would be able to
split their investments between
the Bahamas and internation-
ally, Mr Anderson said, with
the fund managers able to
choose the instruments and
markets likely to deliver the
greatest returns.
Keith Davies, BISX's chief
executive, said of the move to
develop structured products to
give Bahamians access to inter-
national markets and invest-
ments: "The market needs to
grow. It needs diversification.
Unless we do that, we're not
-giving Bahamians what they
need to save and invest in this
country. That's something
everyone should be concerned
with."

By NEIL HARTNELL
Tribune Business Editor
The apparent closure
of the controversial
TJhe apparent closure
I Pegasus Wireless
Manufacturing facil-
ity shows why the Government
should stop interfering in deci-
sions to grant business licences
in Freeport, an attorney told
The Tribune yesterday, point-
ing out that the Supreme Court
had ruled that the Grand
Bahama Port Authority
(GBPA) had "sole" authority
in this area.
Fred Smith, an attorney and
partner with Callender's & Co,
said the 1984 verdict that he
won on behalf of'his then-busi-
ness, Shangri-La, from Justice
Bertrand Adams gave judicial
underpinning to his assertion
that the Government has "no
jurisdiction" over licensing deci-
sions taken by the GBPA.
The Tribune revealed last
year how heavy pressure from
the Office of the Prime Minister
under Perry Christie's admin-
istration eventually persuaded
the GBPA to issue a business
licence to Pegasus Wireless and
its chief executive, Jasper
SKnabb.
Both Sir Albert Miller, the
GBPA's chief executive, and
< Albert Gray, its executive vice-
president in charge of licensing,
were understood to be reluc-
tant to grant Pegasus Wireless a
licence, given the concerns
swirling around the company,
which included a major decline
in its stock price and a class-
action lawsuit filed against it by
US-based shareholders.
Their reluctance seems to
" have been justified, given the
3 lack of activity at Pegasus Wire-
a less' Freeport plant amid spec-
- ulation that the operation is
- closing. There has been no com-
0 ment or attempt to address the
.- situation by Mr Knabb, with
1' some suggesting his silence
Y speaks volumes.
i Referring to recent comments.
g by Zhivargo Laing, minister of
L state for finance, that the Gov-
ernment did not want to,hinder
the conduct.of business in


Freeport, Mr Smith said: "I'd
like to translate that to a broad-
er position, and suggest that the
Government stays out of deci-
sions by the GBPA to issue and
grant licences."
He urged the Government
"to stay out of the business of
the GBPA's licensing functions.
That way, the Port Authority
can be held accountable by the
Government for decisions on
whether to grant licences or
not."
Mr Smith added "The clos-
ing of Pegasus is a dramatic
example of why the central gov-
ernment and, more importantly,
the Prime Minister should not
get involved in the Port Author-
ity's licensing functions.
"My recollection is that the
Port Authority was reluctant
and opposed to giving Pegasus a
licence, but as a result of direct
intervention by the Govern-
ment, a licence was issued."
In the 1984 ruling that Mr
Smith won. Justice Adams
declared that the Hawksbill
Creek Agreement's true mean-
ing was to give sole licensing
authority for businesses in
Freeport to the Port Authori-
ty.
He declared that no prior
approval to the grant of busi-
ness licences in Freeport was
required from the central gov-
ernment in Nassau.
However, in practice, while
Bahamian-owned business
licence applications for Freeport
only have to be approved by
the GBPA, all applications from
foreign-owned investors also
have to be approved by the
Government in Nassau.
Meanwhile, Christopher
Lowe,. the Grand Bahama
Chamber of Commerce's presi-
dent, yesterday urged Mr
Knabb and Pegasus Wireless's
Bahamian attorney, Pleasant
Bridgewater, the PLP senator
and former MP, to clarify the
company's position.
He told The Tribune in ref-
erence to Mr Knabb: "As pres-
ident of the Chamber, it is
unfortunate that the one voice
..that could.clear this issue up
cannot seem to be found."


And he added in a reference
to Ms Bridgewater: "I would
think that if Pegasus was wrap-
ping up its affairs, their legal
counsel would know, as I
assume she would have received
instructions.
"Obviously, the employees
who gained employment, for
those who were unemployed
and worked there, they will be
unemployed again. The really
unfortunate ones are those who
left good jobs to go there, and
have now lost two jobs the
ones they had and the ones with
Pegasus.
"But without ant comment
from the owner or its legal
counsel, no one knows."
Ms Bridgewater has said she
does not know what is happen-
ing with Pegasus, as she is not
involved in its day-to-day oper-
ations and only handles its legal
affairs.
However, recruiting for Pega-
sus staff took place at her law
offices, and sources who visited
the company's factory during
its early stages have told The
Tribune that Ms Bridgewater
then appeared to be working
from its premises.
The current situation, which
appears to have put 80-100
Grand Bahamians out of work
again, will further stoke claims
that the whole Pegasus invest-
ment which was brought to
Grand Bahama by the Govern-
ment, not the Port Authority -
was merely a ploy to boost Ms
Bridgewater's re-election
prospects on May 2.
* The Tribune also revealed
that Mr Knabb had last year
bought the mother ship for the
Korean fishing boat fleet that
was, in 2003, the downfall for
Sidney Stubbs as Bahamas
Agricultural and Industrial
(BAIC) chairman.
He is since understood to
have used it for 'treasure hunt-
ing' in Bahamian waters, and is
said to be living on the boat as
well.
This situation also shows the
need for the Government to

ond most important month of
the year, is a time when retailers
clear out summer goods to
make room for fall merchan-
dise.
Most obvious for most con-
sumers is how much they're
paying for gasoline prices at
the pump that fell after peaking
in late May are again rising, and
the national average price for
a gallon of unleaded regular is
above $3.
And although teens were
spending again in June after a
slower spring, analyst said it is
still too early to tell how the
season will fare. The improve-
ment was reflected in reports
from retailers including Pacific
Sunwear of California Inc. and
Abercrombie & Fitch. Despite
the concerns about back-to-
school, J.C. Penney Co. said it


saw a good response to its early
fall merchandise.
"The picture for the con-
sumer hasn't changed much,"
said John Morris, managing
director at Wachovia Securities.
"The consumer is facing a lot
of headwinds."
Morris noted that the spend-
ing outlook is also becoming
more uncertain because an
increasing number of schools
are starting classes later. Teens
usually wait to do the bulk of
their shopping until after school
starts because they want to see
what their friends are wearing.
The International Council of
Shopping Centers-UBS sales
tally of 50 stores rose 2.4 per-
cent in June, compared to a 3.0
percent gain in the year-ago
period. The tally is based on
same-store sales, which reflect

AP Business Writer
NEW YORK (AP) Con-
sumers were eager to buy
iPhones and flat-screen TVs in
June, but their reluctance to
purchase clothing and other
non-essentials has retailers wor-
ried about the success of the
back-to-school shopping season.
As merchants reported their
generally modest sales gains
Thursday, it was clear that con-
sumers' uneasiness about high-
er good and gas prices and the
weakening housing market was


business at stores open at least a
year and are considered a key
indicator of a retailer's health.
June's results extended the
slowing trend retailers have
experienced since February.
For some stores, June results
were depressed in part by a shift
in the calender that moved the
Memorial Day weekend busi-
ness into May. But retailers of
what are known as discretionary
merchandise such as apparel
and home goods are also com-
ing under increasing pressure
as consumers are forced to pay
more for food and gas. The still-
weakening housing market is
also making shoppers shy about
spending.
Meanwhile, apparel mer-
chants have problems of their
own, including a continuing
absence of must-have fashions
and competition from the lat-
est electronic gadgets.
Craig R. Johnson, president
of Customer Growth Partners, a
retail consultancy in New
Canaan, Conn., said hot gad-
gets like Apple Inc.'s iPhone
are keeping sales of consumer
electronics strong.
"The fashion must-haves of
the world are not apparel, but
the iPhones of the world," said
Johnson. "They are wearing

The fact that the labor mar-
ket is healthy is lending support
to overall consumer spending
levels. The Labor Department
said Thursday the number of
laid-off workers filing unem-
ployment claims dropped to
308,000 last week, the lowest
level in almost two months and
a decline of 12,000 from the pre-
vious week.
Wal-Mart, the world's largest
retailer, had a 2.4 percent gain
in same-store sales, beating the
0.8 percent predicted by ana-
lysts polled by Thomson Finan-
cial. The company said its
aggressive price reduction strat-
egy helped boost results, and it
promised more aggressive price
cuts for the back-to-school sea-
son.

Florida slump



could be worse



than feared


* By DAVID ROYSE
Associated Press Writer
TALLAHASSEE, Fla. (AP)
- The economic slowdown in
Florida may last a little longer
and the slump may be a little
worse than earlier projections,
government economists said
Thursday.
But state analysts also said
the economy doesn't appear
headed for a recession, and
that in the long view it looks
worse than it is because Flori-
da's housing boom was so far
above normal.
Florida's unemployment
rate, while ticking up a bit in
recent months, also is still
below the national level, econ-
omists noted.
Still, economists from the
governor's office, the Legisla-
ture and the state Department
of Revenue, agreed that their
forecasts made last fall and
earlier this year of how big of a


contraction the state would see
in its economy were too opti-
mistic.
"The slow pace we're at
right now is going to last longer
and be a little bit lower than
we originally anticipated," said
Amy Baker an analyst with the
Legislature's joint Office of
Economic and Demographic
Research.
Rate
The state's unemployment
rate, at about 3.4 per cent last
month, is still significantly
below the majority of the
nation, and is the lowest of the
10 most populous states. But
the end of the housing boom
that Florida ihid enjoyed
through the last several years is
beginning to be felt there too.
"We've begun to see con-
struction employment begin to
finally drop ... at fairly sub-
stantial rates," said Frank
Williams, a legislative eco-
nomic analyst.
If Florida's job grove. th does-
n't continue to grow, it would
end a streak of consecutive
months of adding jobs that
goes back almost five years.
While paychecks aren't
shrinking, as the number of
people getting new jobs levels
off, people spend less, which
in turn has'a ripple effect on
other parts of the economy.
"People are hunkering
down, they're not spending as
much, they're being more cau-
tious in the decisions they're
making, both in terms of pur-


chases and credit," Baker said.
Economists also noted that
Florida's population growth -
which has been one of the fac-
tors driving the housing boom
in recent years appears to
be slowing or possibly leveling
off as well, although analysts
said they don't have good,
clear data on that yet. Prelim-
inary school enrollment data,
however, show that fewer stu-
dents are signing up for the
coming year than previously
expected.
It's not clear yet what impact
lower local property tax rev-
enues may have. The Legisla-
ture recently passed a measure
that will cut tax rates in most
communities and prevent them
from being raised in many cas-
es.
Analysts noted that some
governments are already talk-
ing about hiring freezes. But
it's too early to tell what the
new law will mean for the
economy, because presumably
some property owners may
also have more money to
spend on other things. Ana-
lysts projected that some gov-
ernment projects construct-
ing new buildings, for exam-
ple, are likely not to go for-
ward.
Baker said the slowdown
looks worse, because the last
few years were so good.
"It feels very bleak just
because we've been so high,
but the reality of it is if you
look over 20 years, we're not in
a terrible situation," Baker
said.

Pegasus: Nassau 'must stay out of' Port decisions


FROM page 5

insist that investors coming into
the Bahamas provide some sort
of guailantee for their financial
obligations, such as a perfor-
mance bond, as Mr Knabb is
understood to have no fixed
assets in Freeport. meaning he


can sail away quietly at night
with no one knowing if he so
chose.
Senator Katherine Forbes-
Smith, in her Senate contribu-
tion to the Speech from the
Throne debate, urged that more
due diligence be conducted on
foreign investors coming into


the Bahamas, as "every Gov-
ernment has perhaps allowed
some investment that did not
prove to be in the best interest
of the Bahamas and its citi-
zens".
She added: "In Grand
Bahama last week, some 80 to
100 employees of the Pegasus


Wireless Company were told
abruptly that the plant had
closed its doors, and with little
explanation to the staff.
"The company's interest may
never have been the assembly
of some electronic or computer
device but rather, treasure hunt-
ing.
"Based on the information
received, some of the employ-
ees felt misled and were treated
unfairly. As a Government we
must do a better job of deter-
mining those investments best
suited for the Bahamas, and
those who come to conduct
legitimate business."
Mrs Forbes-Smith added:
"The sad thing about this oper-
ation is that some employees
left companies they had been
working with for a number of
years, thinking working for
Pegasus was a good opportuni-
ty with a future........... The inten-
tion of Pegasus was obviously
not in the best interest of the
Bahamas or the Bahamian peo-
ple."


The Spirit of 40,000


tourists for Freeport


FROM page 1

"We are very pleased to
offer our terrific low-fare ser-
vice to one of the world's most
beautiful destinations," said
Barry Biffle, Spirit Airlines'
chief marketing officer. "We're
looking forward to taking trav-
ellers to enjoy Grand Bahama
Island, and, likewise, Spirit is
providing an excellent low fare
-option to-Bahamians to travel
and enjoy the amenities of
South Florida or any of our
other destinations."
Tourism and Aviation Min-
ister, Neko Grant, said: "We
are delighted to welcome to
Grand Bahama the daily ser-
vice of Spirit Airlines between
Freeport, the island's capital
city, and Fort Lauderdale.
"Its addition will not only
broaden our access to the
South Floridian market, which


drives so much of our business,
but will also mean greater
accessibility to other markets
served by Spirit."
The minister further com-
mented, that "Grand Bahama
Island is home to some of the
world's best beaches; and has
ideal conditions for boating,
fishing, diving and a host of
authentically Bahamian expe-
riences. "This boost in airlift to
Grand Bahama will certainly
play a key role in stimulating
the island's stopover market.
We are pleased to establish this
new relationship with Spirit
Airlines, and the potential for
additional non-stop service to
Grand Bahama Island from
other Spirit-originating mar-
kets is certainly noteworthy.
We look forward to a lasting
impact on our tourism indus-
try." Spirit's non-stop service
is effective December 13,2007.

split evenly 499 each between
Sir Jack and the St George estate.
In his letter, Mr Wilson said
the St George estate had chal-
lenged the "validity" of his com-
pany's appointment, on the basis
that no "valid" Board of Direc-
tors meeting was allegedly held
or could have been held to
appoint him.
The St George estate had
maintained that the single share
that Mr de la Rue transferred to
Sir Jack was held jointly for the
benefit of Mr St George and Fro-
bisher Investments, a company


wholly beneficially-owned by Sir
Jack.
However, Sir Jack and his
attorneys alleged that the advice
they received from FMS's regis-
tered office, Cayman-based
Campbell Corporate Services,
was that the sole share was held
by them on behalf of Mr de la
Rue.
Mr Wilson wrote that he had
been unable to test the St George
estate's claim until Campbell's
indicated that the sole share
transferred to Sir Jack had been
held by them as nominees jointly
for both Frobisher Investments
and Sir Jack.
"In light of this new informa-.
tion, in so far as the transfer by
Mr de la Rue to Sir Jack Hay-
ward is concerned, all corporate
actions taken on the back of the


transfer of this single share, which
held the balance of power in
FMS, seem to be in doubt," Mr
Wilson wrote.
"Additionally, it would appear
to me that the plaintiffs are cor-
rect in arguing that FMS should
be neutral in these proceedings
given the equality of the owner-
ship, and the fight left to Sir Jack
Hayward and the estate of Mr St
George. As presently advised, we
were called upon to advise FMS
in these proceedings. Assuming
a 50/50 ownership, that would be
the advice we would give."
Mr Moss responded to Mr Wil-
son by suggesting that his conclu-
sions might be "premature". But
in an affidavit sworn by one of
his associates, Lena Hield, she
alleged that Sir Jack was putting
Campbell Secretaries "on notice


that they shall be held liable" for
any advice "negligently rendered"
over the de la Rue share.
FMS is central to the dispute
because it effectively acted as a
segregated accounts company,.
managing numerous different
investments for the Hayward and
St George families, and also being
used as a holding vehicle for
assets that include according to
the estate Mr St George's and its
50 per cent stake in Interconti-
nental Diversified Corporation
(IDC), which in turn owns the


GBPA and its Port Group affili-
ate.
Sir Jack, though, is alleging that
through his 50 per cent owner-
ship of FMS, he owns half the
shares the St George estate claims
as its own, giving him 75 per cent
control of the GBPA and Port
Group, a shareholding the estate
claims is 50/50/.
Mr Smith said yesterday of the
adjournment of the three-day tri-
al set to start yesterday: "Justice
Allen felt it was only fair to give a
little more time to Mr Moss, par-


ticularly in view of the dramatic
development involving Mr Wil-
son with respect to FMS.
"They have written a letter to
the parties indicating that they
consider Sir Jack's takeover of
FMS was not correct, and that Sir
Jack is not the majority owner."
During the adjournment hear-
ing, Mr Smith said the estate had
requested that 25 per cent of the
GBPA and Port Group dividends
be paid to it, and 25 per cent to
Sir Jack, until the issue was
resolved.

THE TRIBUNE OBITUARIES







PAGE 24, THURSDAY, JULY 26, 2007 THE TRIBUNE OBITUARIES


Text: Proverbs Chapter 3:1-6.

The Book of Proverbs is an exhortation to obedience: This chapter is designed to persuade


ponder:
I us to be righteous, and provides directions in the righteous walk. We want to focus this


The Way to happiness is to be consistent in our Christian Duty.

Pastor Ben Bailey Proverbs 3:1-4: "My son, do not forget My Law, but let your heart keep My Commands:"
The Prophetic Voice You must remember what you hear, because Faith comes by hearing, and hearing comes
P. 0. Box N-9518 by the Word of God; then practice all that you remember: and let your obedience come from
Nassau, Bahamas the heart, keep God's Commandments with your heart, not your head. 'Length of Days,'
tpv.inc@coralwave.com speaks specifically of 'Long Days,' when your focus on Godly Principles becomes single, all
other activities become secondary to your success, and does not demand Power from your
'Vital Source,' this results in 'Long Life,' A long Life and Peace the Scriptures will add to you.
Peace in the Hebrew translates Shalom: meaning Wholeness: Prosperity: which is health, long life, and abundance. 3
John 1:2 expands upon this idea, "Beloved Brethren, I pray that in all things you will prosper, and be healthy, even as
your soul prospers."

Let Mercy and Truth be your constant companions throughout your life; David wrote. "Surely Goodness and Mercy will
follow me all the days of my Life." Bind them around your neck, keeping them constantly in view where you can always
see God's Commandments. Write them on the 'Tablet of your Heart:' God's Living Principles should drive your passions
and desires, revealing the paths of Favour; and 'High Esteem' in the 'Sight of God and man.' When God finds you
acceptable, His Favour is extended. Paul understood this principle and wrote Timothy, "Study to show yourself acceptable
to God, a workman that does not need to be ashamed;" then you will enjoy a sense of His Approval. Men will judge you by
the conduct you display in their presence; examine the characteristics of your motives, and eventually appreciate and give
credit for your sincere and righteous walk. They normally persecute you for your religion in the beginning, because they
are ignorant of the reason for your decision; but eventually they will discover your actions are sincere, and speak highly of
you. God chooses 'Living Witnesses' as positive proof that a person can live a life of excellence, then turn their envy of
you into zeal for a Godly Lifestyle.

We must learn to live totally dependant on God.

Proverbs 3:5-6: "Trust in the Lord with all your heart:" This is the primary lesson of God's Commandments; Trust Him
with your whole mind, will, and emotions. David constantly expressed the thought, "God is Good;" since "Every good and
every perfect gift comes from above, from the Father of Heavenly Lights, in Whom there is no variableness, neither is
there shadow of turning," it is reasonable, therefore, to consider God, 'The Fountain of All Good.' Our part in God's Great
Plan requires that we Desire, Believe, and Receive. "What things so ever you desire when you pray; believe you receive
them, and you have them."

"Lean not on your own understanding:" God has made us to be more intelligent than any other creature; and ensured our
dependence would always be toward Him. Listen to the argument, "God is Light;" again, "The spirit in man is a candle of
the Lord." Jesus proclaimed, "I AM the Light of the world." John chimes in, "I am not that light; I come as a witness of that
Light; He is that Light that Lights every man who comes into the world." Paul offers, "You have been translated from the
kingdom of darkness, into the Kingdom of His Dear Son (The Light of the World)." God promises to supply, "All our needs
according to His Riches in Glory, by Christ Jesus." Therefore we have no reason to lean on another, not even ourselves.
Because, "In Him we live, move, and have our being."

Trusting in man is likened to 'Leaning on a Rod that pierces the Hand of the One that is Leaning; my advice is, whatever
you do, 'Do not Lean.' "The arm of flesh will fail you," we are warned, "You dare not trust your own (flesh)." Turn your
understanding off; Faith works best when you refuse to try to figure things out.

"In all your ways acknowledge Him." The man who fails to depend upon God is a fool. "It is the fool, who says in his heart,
there is no God."

"He shall direct your paths." Start every work, or project with prayer, depending on God to provide a favourable
conclusion: All things work together for good!

* By LAUREL HAMILTON

If you keep saying you can't stand
your job, you might lose your job.
If you keep saying you can't stand
your body, your body can become
sick.
If you keep saying you can't stand
your car, your car could be stolen or
just stop operating.
If you keep saying you're broke,
you'll always be broke.
If you keep saying you can't trust a
man or trust a woman, you will always
find someone in your life to hurt and
betray you.
If you keep saying you can't find a
job, you will remain unemployed.
If you keep saying you can't find
someone to love you or believe in you,
your very thought will attract more
experiences to confirm your beliefs."
The above is an excerpt from
an e-mail sent to me. I share
it with you because it is
important, urgent even, for us to
know the truth about this. For too
long, we have been walking about
saying things are so bad in our lives
and blaming everyone but ourselves.
The truth is that you are the only one
responsible for what is happening in
your life not your evil boss, or your
scheming lover, or your priest, or the
government YOU.
This is the Law of Thinking what
you think about, you bring about.
Jesus of Nazareth put it this way,
"What you believe will be done for
you." (Matt 8:13 TEV)
A belief is simply a thought that
you hold to be true. If you want to
know what you really believe, listen
to what you say. From the abundance
of the heart, the mouth speaks. If you
watch the words you use and the
events in your life, you will realize
that the two always match up. This is

what we call "conscious living" and it
is what the citizens of the Kingdom of
God must do. We have to be con-
scious of what we speak because it
tells us what.we think. We can only
change our thoughts when we know
what they are. For too long, we have
just repeated what was told to us. We
very rarely stop to think about. what
we are believing or saying or doing;
we do it simply because we've always
done it this way. Is this way still work-
ing? Does it apply to your life now?
Is there another way to do it? We do
outgrow and shed some beliefs very
easily, like Santa Claus and the Tooth
Fairy. Other beliefs are harder to let
go of, like "Bey, tings lil tight right
nah", "Nobody loves me" or "All
men cheat".
The Good News is that we can
change our thinking and our belief
patterns and thereby consciously
change our lives for the better. How
dare I say that?! We do it uncon-
sciously every day. Have you ever
denounced something as a myth or an
old wives tale, even though you
believed in it once? Do you still
believe in the Tooth Fairy or Santa
Claus? You have changed your belief.
I invite you to consciously examine
your beliefs. Some beliefs you will
find still serve you well, others you
may choose to discard. You may even
choose to keep all of your current
beliefs and that's fine. But remember,
God says, "I have told my people
they can have what they say, but they
keep saying what they have." Life and
Death are in the power of the tongue
- speak wisely.

Christian court watchers



keep tabs on the judges


* By SAMIRA JAFARI
Associated Press Writer

MANCHESTER, Ky. (AP) John
Becknell enters the courtroom and
finds his usual spot in the front row,
just behind the prosecutor's table.
Becknell a devout Christian
known to many as "Brother John" -
pulls out a pen and an inch-thick dock-
et, mostly of drug and alcohol cases.
For the next three hours, he takes dili-
gent notes on the judge's actions, the
attendance of police officers, repeat
offenders making another appearance,
and so on.
The purpose? To make sure drug
offenders in eastern Kentucky are get-
ting what they deserve.
Frustrated with widespread drug
abuse especially of easily accessible
prescription painkillers a handful of
mountain churches are moving away
from their traditional role as a refuge
for the poor and addicted. Now they're
more interested in law enforcement.
The Community Church of
Manchester is leading the way through
"Court Watch," a program in which
volunteers attend court hearings to
monitor judges overseeing drug-relat-
ed cases.
"It's kind of a new position and very
controversial," said Becknell, who also
runs his church's local Christian televi-
sion station. "A lot of churches shun
getting involved in politics or going to
court."
The Rev. Doug Abner, pastor at
Community Church whose slogan
for a 2004 anti-drug march was "get
saved or get busted" said the pres-
ence of Court Watch volunteers puts
"mild pressure" on judges "to do the
right thing." The volunteers collect
information for a database and look
for trends in drug crimes.
The program concerns some other
people of faith, who say .it cuts against
Christian values.
"The churches have traditionally
been the humanitarian influence in
society," said the Rev. John Rausch,
director of the Catholic Committee on
Appalachia.
Churches should focus on drug
counseling and ministering to inmates,
he said, citing part of the Gospel of
Matthew (25:36) concerning the final
judgment: "When I was in prison, you
came to see me."
"It isn't 'I was up for charges and
you made sure they threw the book at
me,"' Rausch said.
Abner said his church hasn't neglect-
ed its prison ministry or other counsel-
ing programs. Still, he added, "we
believe in giving people chances, but
how many chances do you give them?"


The Community Church, 95 miles
south of Lexington, also has fielded
concerns about the volunteers over-
stepping the bounds of keeping church
and state separate, but he said there's
no reason why congregants should stay
away from the criminal justice system.
Ken Bolin, pastor at Manchester
Baptist Church, said he supports Court
Watch and sees no reason why church-
es and courts can't work together to
combat drug.offenders.
"We're such a major part of moun-
tain life why shut the church out of
the institution?" he said.
Court Watch and Community
Church came together three years ago,
when Christian leaders in Clay County
were overwhelmed by their deep-root-
ed drug problem. As in much of east-
ern Kentucky, drug abuse was a long-
time epidemic in this area of about
25,000 even afflicting members of
Becknell's family.
"Good people have sat back and
done nothing," Abner said.
Desperate for a solution, Becknell
began to work with Operation
UNITE, a federally funded drug task
force that covers 29 counties in south-
eastern Kentucky and which created
Court Watch. He said that during his
first few sessions as a court observer,
he noticed officers not showing up,
cases getting dismissed, judges doling
out lenient sentences and the same
defendants appearing before the same
judge.
-He came to this conclusion: "If
you're waiting for the courts to combat
drugs, how long are you going to
wait?"
Becknell and his fellow volunteers
don't limit themselves to collecting
information they also approach law
enforcement and judges when they
believe something is amiss.
UNITE Executive Director Karen
Engle recalled the time Becknell ques-
tioned the task force about its own
officers not showing up to court in his
county. Turns out the officers hadn't
been properly subpoenaed, she said,
but "we wouldn't have known about
the problem if he hadn't reported it."
Court Watch "holds everyone
accountable, including UNITE," she
said.
Over the years, Becknell has trained
around two dozen churches or church-
sponsored groups in the program.
"The churches have such influence
in the community they're an obvi-
ous place to recruit volunteers," said
Dale Morton, spokesman for UNITE.
"They're a captive audience ... they're

Books of collected sermons, writings


from


ygamous sect leaders rare find


* By JENNIFER DOBNER
Associated Press Writer

SALT LAKE CITY (AP) It's a
book collector's dream rifling
through the shelves of a secondhand
store and finding a valuable text for a
bargain price.
It happened January 31 to a man
who plunked down $40 and took
home eight books of sermons and
writings from elders of a secretive
and polygamous Mormon breakaway
group, the Fundamentalist Church of
Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints.
Adding interest to the find the
books are inked in red with a proper-
ty stamp from Purgatory
Correctional Facility, the jail in
Hurricane where FLDS church presi-
dent Warren Jeffs is awaiting trial on
charges of rape by accomplice.
The volumes are rare and likely
worth much more than the purchaser
paid, say booksellers who trade in
early writings from leaders of the
mainstream Church of Jesus Christ of
Latter-day Saints. It's .still a mystery
how the books made their to the
thrift store.
"Those books are unbelievably
scarce," said Tom Kimball, a collec-
tor and seller. "They could be worth
thousands.- It's every Mormon book
nerd's fantasy."
Members of the FLDS live intense-
ly private lives and shun most inter-
action with outsiders, including mem-

always looking for a mission."
During a recent training session at
the First Baptist Church in Grayson,
Becknell described the transforma-
tion in his community: "If you do,the
crime in Manchester, you do the
time."
"If your circuit and district judges
decided to hold people, accountable
under. the law, your community would
change in 60 days," he told the group.

bers of their own families who leave
the faith. For decades, members have
lived in the remote twins towns of
Hildale, Utah, and Colorado City,
Arizona, dressing in 19th century-
style clothes, rejecting the trappings
of modernity and striving for perfect
obedience to God.
Drawing on the early theology of
the Mormon church, the sect contin-
ues to practice polygamy, believing
that plural marriage brings exaltation
in heaven. They consider church
president Jeffs a prophet who com-
municates with God.
While some fundamentalist works


are available, the nature of the vari-
ous polygamous groups usually
means printed materials circulate
only internally, said Ken Sanders,
owner of a rare books store in Salt
Lake City.
"It's very, very rare," said Stan
Larson, curator of manuscripts at the
University of Utah's Marriott
Library. "We would be very glad to
have them."
The volumes were produced
between 1994 and 2006 by the Twin
City Courier Press, of Hildale, a com-
pany owned and operated by a mem-
ber of the fundamentalist church.
Each of the 8 1/2-by-ll books is
hard-bound in a black cover with its
title printed in gold leaf. Depending
on the volume, publishing credits are
either awarded to Jeffs or his prede-
cessor and father, Rulon Jeffs.
Six of the books are the collected
sermons of former FLDS President
Leroy S Johnson, who led the funda-
mentalist church from 1955 until his
death at age 98 on November 25,
1986. The sermons begin in 1950 and
each reflects the occasion or location
where it was delivered, including the
southern Utah communities original-
ly called Short Creek, Salt Lake City
and a small FLDS enclave in Canada.
Some of the writings appear to be
from Johnson's own hand, imparting
his personal stories, reflections or
anecdotes. Others draw primarily on
scriptural references from either the
Bible or the Book of Mormon, and
cite sermons or speeches from early
leaders including Joseph Smith,
Brigham Young and John Taylor.


While Clay County's judges say
they welcome Court Watch, they also
say they'd operate the same way -
with or without observers.
"They know they're welcome in my
court anytime I'm there," said
District Judge Renee Muncy.
Yet, she added that she doesn't feel
pressured by the presence of Court
Watch participants.
Neither does Circuit Judge R.
Cletus Maricle, who said, "Some
judges probably feel they are there to
intimidate him. If the judge is intimi-
dated, that's his fault."


Two of the books are collections of
"Zion's Light Shining," a monthly
FLDS newsletter that originated with
Rulon Jeffs, who assumed leadership
of the church in the 1980s. The
newsletters, each about 40 pages,
date back to February 1999 and con-
tain similar material, along with writ-
ings from various FLDS elders.
"With Every Breath, Keep Sweet,
No Matter What" and "Perfect
Obedience Produces Perfect Faith,"
the newsletter masthead reads, rein-
forcing two key tenets of FLDS faith.
Ben Bistline, a former FLDS
church member and a historian who
has written two books about the
FLDS, said the volumes are likely
reprints of books first published
about 1980. Then the collected works
of Johnson were churned out in
paperback for church members' per-
sonal use.
"But you had to get permission of
the prophet to buy one," recalled
Bistline, of Cane Beds, Ariz. "They
published the books to promote
polygamy and their way of thinking."
Bistline questions whether the vol-
umes are a complete record. If mem-
ory serves, he said, FLDS leaders
selected the teachings they thought
would be most useful to members.
Although some of the writings tout
the practice of plural marriage and
others warn of government persecu-
tion from the states of Utah and
Arizona, there's not much fire and
brimstone. The collector, a funda-
mentalist from St. George, in south-
western Utah, who spoke only on
condition that his name not be used,
said he bought the volumes because
of his interest in early Mormonism
and because of his own beliefs. He let
a reporter and a photographer from
The Associated Press look at the
books, but said he had no immediate
interest in selling or donating the
books.
"An interesting find for me," he
wrote in an e-mail about the books.
It's unclear when or how the books
made their way to the jail, said
Washington County sheriff's Lt. Jake
Adams.
Jeffs, 51, is charged with two felony
counts of rape as an accomplice for
having forced a religious marriage
between a 14-year-old follower and
her 19-year-old cousin in, 2001. His
trial is scheduled for this September,
roughly a year since he was first
jailed.

received the challenge to "go
forth and do something for
God" when she was awarded
a degree in theology.
Although she worked as a
Sunday school teacher as
well as an elementary school
teacher for many years, she
said -that her first thought
upon hearing the challenge
was, "What could I possibly
do?" She turned to the stu-
dent sitting next to her and
told him that the Lord had
called her to do something,
but she didn't know what it
was. He in turn told her to
get in contact with him when
she got her ministry started.
Although she never did write
the student, The Children's

year later.

Former school teacher ordained




to the Holy Order of Deacons


L ong Islanders
turned out in large
numbers to wit-
ness history being made as
Paulette Maria
Cartwright, a former
school teacher, was
ordained to the Holy
Order of Deacons in the
Anglican Diocese of the
Bahamas and the Turks &
Caicos Islands.
In front of an overflow-
ing congregation at St
Paul's Anglican Church in
Clarence Town, Mrs
Cartwright took the oath
of office, promising to be
"diligent in the reading of
the Holy Scriptures, and
seeking the knowledge of
things to deepen her faith,
and make her stronger and
more able to minister of
Christ."
A large contingent from
Nassau, led by Archbishop
Drexel Gomez, and bish-
ops Laish Boyd and
Gilbert Thompson,
attended the ordination.
The preacher was
Reverend Kingsley
Knowles, Rector of St


George's, in New
Providence.
A native Long Islander,
Paulette was born on
September 1, 1955 to
Arthur and Olga Major in
the settlement of Berry's.
Her early years of aca-
demic learning took place
on Long Island, with sec-
ondary education continu-
ing in Nassau at C C
Sweeting Senior High
School.
Following graduation
from secondary school,
Paulette was employed as
an accounts clerk/cashier
at Barclays Bank in
Nassau for five years,
before joining the teach-
ing profession.
Mrs Cartwright is a 2007
graduate of Codrington
College, Barbados, and
also a graduate of the
College of the Bahamas,
with a degree in secondary
education.
She is married to
Andrew Cartwright and
they are the proud parents
of three sons and a daugh-
ter.

* ARCHBISHOP Drexel Gomez presents Deacon Paulette Cartwright to the congregation


GOD, from 32


Swann told Tribune Religion.
"A crucial step in children being all
that they can be is for parents to meet
their intimate needs. There is a need
to build intimate loving relationships
between parent and child. This needs
to be something that parents do delib-
erately, giving that affection, sense of
appreciation, respect. Sometimes we
as parents want God to do this for us,
but this is what he has charged us with
as parents," she said.
In their parenting training seminar,
the Swanns use the workbook,
"Parenting with Intimacy" from the
Great Commandment Ministry
Resource Collection, that teaches
participants how to re-think their
approach to parenthood.
The book explains how we all were
born as needy individuals who will
have our needs met by God. But the


book also explains that God uses oth-
ers to help meet our needs, and par-
ents, who are really meant to be
God's physical presence in a child's
life, have a responsibility to meet
some of their child's intimacy needs.
"Psalms 127:3 says, 'Behold, chil-
dren are a gift from the Lord'. An
integral part of parenting with intima-
cy is taking your child your gift -
untying the bow, undoing the wrap-
ping, enjoying and getting to know
this child deeply and intimately," the
book reads. It is authored by David
Ferguson, Paul Warren, Jim Walker
and Terri Snead.

Carefully

"..Unwrap your gift carefully with
a sense of awe that you have been
entrusted with such a treasure," the
book continues.
A high stakes venture that should
be considered a very high calling, par-
enting comes with lots of responsibil-


ity and should be undertaken with a
selfless attitude.
Since children are gifts from God,
the ultimate goal in parenting, should
be to train and shape a child's young,
impressionable mind in God's image.
Parents should strive to diligently
implement the command in
Deuteronomy 6, which is to teach
children and speak of the Lord as
they rise up, sit down, and go in and
out. God's plan is for parents to lead
their children to a living faith, even
before the church does.

The impact of poor parenting

The manifestations of poor parent-
ing, Pastor Swann said, can be seen all
around us. The correlation between
poor parenting and the general well-
ness of a society cannot be denied,
since the family is indeed the first
social institution that was created. So
the rise in criminal activity, though
not exclusively, can be in many


instances linked to breakdowns in
parenting within the society.
"The ability for us to relate to each
other as human beings suffers. For
example, when it comes to conflict
resolution it is difficult for someone
to resolve conflicts in other areas of
their life if it is not happening in the
home environment," he said.
Most parents will tell you that the
experience of parenting can be one of
the most challenging of life's tasks.
Still, it has the potential to be one of
life's richest experiences. There is no
real list of do's and don't or checklists
of right's and wrong's here, but rely-
ing on the example of how God par-
ents His children may be a great place
to start.
Behold, children are a heritage from
the Lord, the fruit of the womb is a
reward. Like arrows in the hand of a
warrior, so are the children of one's
youth. Happy is the man who has his
quiver full of them.

Pastor: Void in young people





'can only be filled by God'


* By PETURA BURROWS
Tribune Feature Writer
With the recent spate of
murders coming at the
hands of teenagers and
men in their early twenties, the
Bahamian community has been left
bewildered as to why these acts of
violence are happening. And while
some citizens are looking to the
Government to take a stand, others
are calling on the Church to take a
more proactive role in helping to pre-
serve the youth of this nation.
Nathan Rolle, executive pastor
over all ministries at Living Waters
Kingdom Ministries, located on
Warren Street, said that for a long
time the Church has not be address-
ing the real issues regarding our soci-
ety. He said that the main message
that the church has shared is one that
simply motivates a congregation for'a
period of time. Yet, no lasting change
is seen.
"We as the church should be look-
ing at the real issues, showing young
men that they can be empowered
spiritually, intellectually and econom-
ically," Pastor Rolle said.
"A lot of them want to have stuff.
So their vision is to get what other
people have, and they will do what-
ever it takes to get those things with-
out going through the process that
other people had to go through."
When asked to identify the root
cause of the ongoing rampant crimi-
nal activity in Bahamian society,
Pastor Rolle said that first and fore-
most the perpetrators need to re-
evaluate their relationship with God.
As a byproduct of this strained rela-
tionship, young men are lashing out
because they are lost as to where they
fit into society. They have not con-
sulted God as to what their purpose
is, he explained.
"So you have young people who
are looking for things to fill a void in
their lives. They try drugs and that
fails them. They try women and that
didn't work. There is a longing to fill
a void that can only be filled by
God," Pastor Rolle said.
One of the prevailing issues in the
church however, is that many
Christians have become desensitized
to caring for the community.


* GUESTS attend the first annual "Kingdom Empowerment Dinner"


Speaking on behalf of the church's
senior pastor, Apostle Raymond
Wells, Pastor Rolle believes that the
criminal activity that we are seeing
has a lot to do with Christians not
reaching out to young people and
providing godly training.
"This attitude in the church has
gone so far that some Christians have
become selfish in our thinking.
Within the body of Christ we have
become so segregated where we
think, 'God for us all, but I'm for
myself'. So we do not go into the
community anymore. So we don't
care for each other's children.
"But I also think that because
many of us in the church don't know
who we are, we are intimidated to go
out and empower others. Therefore,
we don't want to unite our efforts and
come together to bring about change
in a community where young men
have so much repressed anger build-
ing over time that when an opportu-
nity to release that comes, they just
explode."
Doing its part to empower men of


all ages, however, Living Waters
Kingdom Ministries recently opened
its doors to men in the community for
a unique dining experience that
emphasized the spirit of brother-
hood, and where the diners were
served food for thought touching on'
how men can revisit and embrace
God's ultimate purpose for their
lives, while stepping into the godly
role that he has ordained for them.
This dining experience, the 1st
Annual "Kingdom Empowdrment
Dinner" was initiated to bring men
from the business sector and the
church together in one forum in
order to mobilize them as entrepre-
neurs and leaders, and to give the
men the tools they need for effective
living. Michael Pintard, Bahamian
poet, spoke at the event, which was
attended by approximately 150 men,
including representatives from spon-
soring companies like Texaco and
Island Gas.
Pastor Rolle said that events like
the Kingdom Men's Dinner are what
the Bahamas needs since men seem


to be losing perspective on their rea-
son for being.
"I believe that we have lost our
identity and we therefore are lacking
in confidence. We let our egos get in
the way, so we don't want to sit at the
feet of people and learn.
"I think change begins with men
really finding out who they are, their
identity. If all men came to under-
stand their original purpose we could
start an army," he said.
Pastor Rolle said further that a
man's godly purpose is to be a
prophet, priest and king over his fam-
ily, and in the wider community.
Living Waters Kingdom
Ministries, which describes itself as
divinely set apart by God to establish
order in the church and individual
lives, has a mission and vision to
develop persons to execute God's
assignment with the "spirit of excel-
lence", and to educate humanity on
ways to achieve and walk in the man-
ifested prosperity of God. Interested

Crime


& Crime


* By PASTOR MATTHEW
ALLEN
Several years ago there
was a movie called,
"A Few Good Men."
The leading stars of the
movie were Tom Cruise,
who starred as Lieutenant
Daniel Kaffee, a young
marine attorney; Demi
Moore as a Navy attorney
and Jack Nicholson as
Marine Colonel Nathan
Jessep. An intense examina-
tion took place of Colonel
Jessep by attorney Kaffee
who was asking the colonel
for the truth; the colonel
replied in a hostile tune,
"You can't handle the
truth".
True
This is also true with us as
a so called Christian nation;
we can't handle the truth,
this is one of the reasons
why we love to put on a
pedestal those persons reli-
gious, government or civic
leaders who are saying that
which we want to hear
rather than dealing with the
truth.
When we think of crime in
this country, we normally
think of a criminal act that's
been committed by a person
or persons who may have
used some kind of weapon
in the commission of such an
act which may or may not
have resulted in the inflict-
ing of harm, injury or even
death to another. The mur-
ders and other serious
crimes that we are seeing


today are just the advanced
level of the other crimes that
we've learnt to accept and
have been closing our eyes
too for years. Let's take a
quick look at some of these
crimes.
1 Children (babies) hav-
ing or giving birth to chil-
dren (babies). The parents
or guardians of these chil-
dren, though they have
failed to be responsible
adults and care for and pro-
tect their children until they
reached the age of consent,
have been allowed to go
unpunished by the law of
the land.
2 Receiving and the pur-
chasing of items that may
have been stolen:
Any person knowing
that the seller of such items
can't produce a proper
receipt showing the pur-
chase of the item, and con-
tinues the transaction or
does not report the same to
the authorities is of a crimi-
nal mind themselves.
Receiving funds as a
result of a counting error eg,
the cashier at a food store,
bank or any other business
gives you more change than
you should receive, and
upon discovering the same
you remain silent that's
being of a criminal mind.

officers fail to carry out their
duties they are partakers of

Shaping 'gifts from God'


* By PETURA BURROWS
Tribune Feature Writer
A s with anything in life,
old habits die hard. And
the realm of parenting
provides no exception.
Many of the traditional views regard-
ing how a parent should respond to a
child or discipline their offspring,
continue to be passed on through
generations though many of them
are not effective in these times.
Ghaly Swann, senior pastor of the
Church of God of Prophecy at
Elizabeth Estates, and his wife,
Angela Swann, both of them direc-
tors of the denomination's National
Family Ministry, believe that many
Bahamian parents should revisit their
view on parenting as God has
ordained it.
Pastor Swann told Tribune Religion
that one of the main observations
that he has made is that parents do
not respect their children.
"What we have done as parents in
previous generations for example, is
tell our child, 'shut up, big people
talking'. So children feel as if they are
less than human and that their voice
is not important,". Pastor Swann
explained.
"We as parents can teach our chil-
dren that there are times when they
shouldn't speak, but we are convey-
ing this message in a way that shows
no respect when we simply shut the
child down."
A parent using respectful parenting
techniques will listen carefully to a
child, especially when the child pro-
vides a well thought-out explanation
for behaviour that has been called
into question. After listening, a par-
ent can respect the child's input by
reconsidering his own position in
view of what the child has suggested.
The parent has to carefully consider
which possibility makes more sense:
the parent's or the child's perspective.
However, treating a child's view

with such respect which many may
consider giving the child too much
authority may seem like a stretch
for parents who themselves were
raised by parents who answered most
why questions with an authoritative,
"because I said so".
Previous generations of parents did
not see the need for explaining what
their reasoning was. Things were the


way they were just because. Thus,
children were told what to do and
how to do it, and if they didn't comply
they were punished. They weren't
taught by example how to reason
things through and decide between a
few options what might work best
and why it might work best.
While the Swanns are not against
discipline, they insist that parents


should discipline their children in
love rather than in wrath.
"Discipline is necessary, but much
of the discipline given [back in the
day] was unreasonable. Beating a
child did not convey love to the child.
The only message being conveyed by
the parent is, 'I will beat you until I'm
satisfied'. So parents should really
discipline in love, not anger," Pastor
Swann explained.
Another way parents show no
respect to their children, Mrs Swann
said, is by failing to keep promises
they've made to their child.
Regardless of the child's age toddler
to teenage or beyond it is the par-
ent's obligation to commit to fulfilling
all promises and not merely disregard
their promises as unimportant.
"Parents are making promises and
they are careless about keeping them.
But then we expect the child to do
what we want," she explained.
. "And how many parents have ever
apologized to their children for
something that they have done
wrong? Parents don't feel the need to
apologize. But they do not really
understand what is happening inside
the child's mind," Pastor Swann
pointed out.
While there are so many parental
dynamics at work here, the Swanns
believe that if Christian parents come
to realize the foundation of how to
parent with intimacy that is meeting
their child's need for affection, appre-
ciation and respect, they would be
building an effective parent-child
relationship.
"We are hoping that parents would
realize that meeting the intimacy
needs of their children, not just their
basic needs, is something that is very
important in the relationship
between parent and child. You don't
want your child to get those intimacy
needs met somewhere else," Mrs
