Ambulance staff

stage sick-out

over pay issues


By ALISON LOWE
Tribune Staff Reporter
STAFF from the Emergency
Medical Services in charge
of responding to emergency
calls made to the Princess Mar-
garet Hospital staged a sick-
out between Thursday and Fri-
day, causing the public facility
to have to contract Doctor's
Hospital to cover the shortfall,
The Tribune has learned.
Reports from several sources
yesterday indicated that the
action had-not significantly
affected the level of response
to emergency calls as the period
had not been a busy one, how-
ever, as of Friday afternoon it
was unclear whether the sick-
out would continue into the
active weekend period, as had
been threatened by one source
in case staff members'
"demands are not met."

hits at


FNM
By DENISE

Tribune Freeport
Reporter
FREEPORT The Pro-
gressive Liberal Party initi-
ated a full scale political
attack in Grand Bahama on
Thursday evening, accusing
the FNM government of
violating contractual agree-
ments, alleged victimisation
in the civil service, and dis-
mantling the urban renewal
programme at a pivotal time
in the country's develop-
ment.
PLP leader Perry Christie
and a number of PLP MPs
were in Freeport for a town
meeting hosted by Senator
Pleasant Bridgewater at the
Marco City PLP headquar-
ters the first public meet-
ing held here since the par-
ty lost the elections in May.
Mr Christie, former prime
minister, said there are a
number of issues that con-
cern the opposition party,
particularly the suspension
and cancelling of various
contracts that were "lawful-
ly"' entered into by the for-
mer PLP government
before the election.
The PLP government is

problems with their radio corn-
munication system, and issues
with a senior staff member,
Director of EMS Paul New bold,
who one source described ;,:; a
"tyrant" in the department.
According to the source close
to the EMS, the sickout b guan
at 4pm Thursday.
Mr Newbold said that fiomn
midnight to 8am Friday there
were two ambulances on call--
one each from the Paradise
Island based emergency sei vices
and Doctor's Hospital, while
between 8am and yesterday
afternoon there were a total of
four ambulances in action,
which included two from DIif-
tor's Hospital.
That private medical facili I
was contracted by EMS in
advance of the sickout to cover
the shortfall.

Four tuberculosis cases

reported in the Bahamas


By DENISE MAYCOCK
Tribune Freeport Reporter
MINISTER of Health and Social Develop-
ment Dr Hubert Minnis announced that the
Ministry of Health has documented in recent
weeks four reported cases of tuberculosis in
the Bahamas.
Dr Minnis revealed that two cases of tuber-
culosis have been diagnosed in New Provi-
dence, and one case each in Abaco and
Eleuthera in recent weeks.
He assured the public that the necessary sur-
veillance is being done by the Department of
Public Health in New Providence, Abaco and


Tribune

By TANEKA THOMPSON
THE intended "boycott" of The Tribune, Nas-
sau Guardian, and Freeport News called for by
PLP official Obie Wilchcombe is "ridiculous"
and unwarranted, says Tribune president, Robert
Carron.
"I think it's just ridiculous, quite frankly," Mr
Carron said in an interview Friday morning. "First
of all nothing has been done (by the publications)
to deserve a.boycott. Obie Wilchcombe and the
PLP know that despite The Tribune's point of
view in its editorial column, over the years their
party has received fair and impartial reporting
on every issue in The Tribune's news columns.
Our print and radio airwaves have always been
open to them and they have used them."
Mr Carron, who is also Chief Operating Officer
of the newly formed media group, said The Tri-
bune was never against the PLP's right to present
its point of view in its news columns, but simply
reserved the right to disagree with that party's phi-

Eleuthera.
"It is not uncommon for cases of tuberculo-
sis to be found in The Bahamas. A review of the
reported cases since 1994, indicated a high of 82
cases in 1997," said the Minister in a press
statement issued on Friday.
He noted that it was a decrease between
2001 and 2005 with cases ranging from 40 to 47.
However, in 2006, the number of reported cas-
es rose to 62, he said.
Tuberculosis is a communicable disease that

Guardian

ALTHOUGH PLP MP Obie Wilchcombe isn
entitled to his opinion, Nassau Guardian president
Anthony Ferguson wondered if he would be in a
position, if his proposed boycott were success-
ful, to offer employment or compensation to staff
who could be laid of if the businesses did not sur-
vive.
Mr Ferguson was replying to Mr Wilchcombe's
threatened boycott of The Tribune and The Nas-
sau Guardian because they signed an agreement
to unite their production, printing, distribution,
advertising and accounts departments. This move
was to curtail costs and ensure the survival of
both publications. It was made clear that the
agreement would in no way interfere with the
editorial policy or news gathering of the two
dailies. Mr Wilchcombe does not believe this and
thinks that it threatens democracy and freedom of
speech.
He has called for a boycott to block an agree-
ment that has already been signed.
"Mr Wilchcombe proposed that the business be

No denial

the FNM
By BRENT DEAN
Tribune Staff Reporter
FORMER Independent MP
Whitney Bastian does not deny
that he may be set to join the
FNM.
Published reports in The
Punch last Monday indicated
that Mr Bastian has already
joined the governing party.
When asked if the reports
were true, or if he is about to
align himself with the FNM,
Mr Bastian said: "I will not
deny that."
By the end of this month,
when he makes his formal
announcement about his polit-
ical future at a press confer-
ence, Mr Bastian told The Tri-
bune that he will be accompa-
nied by about 600 members of
the South Andros community

selves with that particular polit-
ical organisation.

church's effect


on education



Copies given to COB


Canon Dr Kirkley
Sands, chair of the
School of Social
Studies at the
College of the
Bahamas has finished a new
book on the influence of the
Anglican Church on education
in the Bahamas.
He presented copies of the
book to COB officials this
week, including director of
Libraries and Instructional
Media Services Willamae John-
son and executive vice-presi-
dent for academic affairs Dr
Rhonda Chipman-Johnson.
The book, part one of a two-
part series, is entitled: The
Anglican Church and Educa-
tion in the Bahamas; The Angli-
can Contribution to Education
and the Building of Civil Society
in The Bahamas 1725 1890.
It is an exhaustive and


detailed study of what was the.
country's sole source of educa-
tion until after the American
revolutionary wars.
Canon Sands describes his
book as a "historical document
that puts education in the
Bahamas in its wider context"
and says he laboured long and
hard researching in the Depart-
ment of Archives and on the
top floor of the main library.
"The top floor of the library is a
real gold mine for historical
documents," he added.
About to embark on a one
semester sabbatical that will see
him become the senior scholar
in residence at the Overseas
Student Ministry Centre at Yale
University, Canon Sands is
excited at the prospect of being
involved at one of the world's
top universities.
"I shall be conducting
research into the contributions


of Bahamians to the Episco-
palian Church in Florida," he
explained, "and I shall also give
lectures on missiology, the
spreading and expansion of
Christianity, from a religious
and cultural perspective."
The latter is a topic that
Canon Sands is more than qual-
ified to lecture on as, at the
moment, he is proof reading a
second book. This one, Early
Bahamian Slave Spirituality -
The Genesis of Bahamian Cul-
tural Identity, is an investiga-
tion into what has gone into the
creation of Bahamian identity
from a historical and psycho-
logical point of view.
Dr Chipman-Johnson spoke
enthusiastically about the book,
saying that it represented the
"very heart of the type of
research members of the immi-
nent University of the Bahamas
should be conducting".
The second book in the series
is being written by one of
Canon Sands' colleagues in the
School of Social Sciences, the
Reverend Etienne Bowleg
PhD, and will look at the influ-
ence of the Anglican Church on
education up the present day.
Canon Sands, who gained his
doctorate from the University
of Edinburgh in Scotland, will
be in Chapter One Bookstore
to sign copies of his book on
Tuesday, August 14 at 3pm.

WELL REWARDED Gregory Williams' 30 years of service are honoured with
a gift presented by Albert Archer, Carib Insurance Agency's managing director


Carib Insurance Agency is saluting one of its
finest in the insurance industry.
On July 3, family, colleagues and friends cele-
brated the achievements of Giegory Williams
who has given 30 years of dedicated service to
Carib Insurance.
Managing director Albert Archer applauded
Mr Williams' work and expressed appreciation on
this milestone. He was described as a hard work-
ing team player at Carib Insurance.
In his remarks at a cocktail reception, Mr
Archer praised Mr Williams for his invaluable
contribution to Carib Insurance and develop-
ment of the company.
"Greg has been a loyal, honest, respectful,
capable, efficient, hard working team player of
Carib Insurance. He knows how to persevere
and has tenacity, hanging in there during difficult
times.
"His leadership skills come out best during


times of hurricanes this is when he lifts the bar
a bit higher and steps up to the plate. He takes
control of the situation and everyone else fol-
lows, he knows exactly what to do," said Mr
Archer.
Mr Williams began work with the company on
March 14, 1977; he qualified as an associate of the
Chartered Insurance Institute in London on Octo-
ber 1991 and chartered insurer in July 1996.
"Mr Williams was always willing to advance
himself in the profession of insurance," said the
company in a statement. "In his professional life,
Mr Williams has been involved in all the major
accounts handled by Carib Insurance over the
many years; including Bahamas Telecommuni-
cations Corporation, Bahamas Electricity Cor-
poration, the Hotel Corporation, National Insur-
ance Board, Civil Aviation, the Bahamas Defence
Force and the Bahamas Development Bank to
name a few."

Wilchcombe threatens boycott

of Tribune, Nassau Guardian

and Freeport News over joint

operating agreement


By DENISE MAYCOCK
Tribune Freeport Reporter

FREEPORT A PLP MP
and former ZNS
broadcaster/journalist strongly
condemned the recent joint
operation agreement between
three major news publications
in the Bahamas, calling it a
"threat to democracy and free
speech."
Obie Wilchcombe, MP for
West End and Bimini, is threat-
ening to organise a campaign
led by the PLP to stop such an
"undemocratic arrangement" to
remain in place in the Bahamas.
"We must rise up; we must
not allow the voice of the peo-
ple to be stifled in any form," he

The Tribune, The Guardian and
The Freeport News to carry the
same stories, pick the same
angles written by the same
reporters employed by the same
company; we cannot allow that
to happen."
The former ZNS broadcaster
said that "a Tribune monopoly
or dominance is just as bad as a
ZNS monopoly, or even
worse."
"We will be seeing the same
things; we will be hearing only
one voice ... that will be the
side that that paper supports
today, and right today that side
is the FNM," he said.

addition to now controlling the

"Let's do so for the entire

let's continue the boycott

Mr Wilchcombe said that
democracy is fundamental to
the Bahamas, and was fought
for by the country's greatest
leaders, such as Sir Lynden Pin-
dling, AD Hanna, and Sir Milo
Butler.
"We must stand up if we
believe in democracy. I have
been an advocate for free
speech. I stand up for the jour-,
nalists and I fight for journal-
ists, but I have watched many of
my colleagues and I have seen
them endure much from the


media.
"We have seen their dignity
dashed and bruised, and man y

newspapers. Many has sat and
watched, and many Bahamiars
have sat back and laughed and
enjoyed while we saw Bahami-

side as they were assailed,
talked about badly, and accused
of many things."
"Well, my friend, it was on]l

FNM and now we must send
the message that enough is
enough. We, the young PLP -

rise up now and we-must pro-

Moses generation made a real-

"We are not going to turn
back; we will lead a campaign
against this undemocratic ide-

US attorney general faces criticism


WASHINGTON The collapse in confidence
in Attorney General Alberto Gonzales is all but
total among both Democrats and Republicans.
Still, President George W. Bush is standing by his
longtime friend from Texas.
Bush is known for his loyalty, but his reluc-
tance to act this time is baffling Washington.
Gonzales has shouldered the brunt of con-
gressional criticism over Bush's warrantless wire-
tapping programme and the Justice Depart-
ment's firings of U.S. attorneys last year. He
now faces calls for a perjury investigation, and
Democrats are clamouring for a special prose-
cutor.
Rank-and-file Republicans are upset by his
faltering performance before congressional pan-
els. Conservatives object to his views on affir-
mative action for minorities and abortion.
Even FBI Director Robert Mueller, a Gonza-
les subordinate, appeared to contradict Gonza-
les' sworn testimony to senators about a 2004
hospital encounter between Gonzales and then-
Attorney General John Ashcroft.
So why is Gonzales still around?
Two personality traits long identified with
Bush stubbornness and loyalty to those loyal to
him are clearly factors. Also, Bush's advisers
are mindful of the fact that it could be next to
impossible to win Senate confirmation this late in
his term for any possible replacement. Bush has
18 months left in office.
Also, Gonzales has long served as an enabler
for Bush.
Both as White House counsel and now as
attorney general, Gonzales has provided a stream
of written justifications for Bush's anti-terror-
ism tactics from maintaining the prison camp at
Guantanamo Bay to stem treatment of terror
suspects and the administration's domestic sur-
veillance programme.
"The only person he is responsible to is the
president, and the president seems to be standing
by him," said Carl Tobias, a law professor at the
University of Richmond. "I don't see much give
on either side right now. They seem to be digging
in their heels."
Tobias doubts a definitive judicial ruling can
resolve a looming constitutional confrontation
between the administration and Congress, given
the short time left in Bush's term and the law's
usual delay.
Gonzales also serves another useful function:
as a lightning rod.
"There is a body of thought among Republi-
cans that gives Gonzales great credit for drawing
fire and putting up with it so the others in the
Bush Cabinet can do their jobs," said Republican
consultant Rich Galen. "Because, if Gonzales
is gone, they (Democrats) will just look for a

new guy to go after."
Galen said only Bush and Gonzales know the
next act in this drama.
Still, he said, "I suspect there will come a
time here, maybe as early as the August (con-
gressional) recess when everybody's out of town,
when the attorney general decides that his best
course is to go."
Bush could then make a so-called "recess
appointment" of a new attorney general. The
Constitution gives him that authority. Such
appointments, made wheh Congress is in recess,
bypass the Senate confirmation process entirely.
Such an appointee could serve until the next
Congress convenes which coincides with the
inauguration of a new president in January 2009.
But as of now, the administration is standing
fast behind Gonzales, and there is zero talk of a
replacement.
Democrats who now control Congress "have
deliberately had this crusade against him to try to
destroy the attorney general. And we are stand-
ing by the attorney general for his statements,"
White House spokeswoman Dana Perino said
Friday.
Furthermore, White House and Justice
Department officials insisted that what looked
like a contradiction between testimony of Gon-
zales and FBI Director Mueller was more of a
semantical difference, a confusion of terms..
Gonzales is no longer getting much support
from Republicans, some of whom have expressed
embarrassment by his conduct and sometimes
bewildered-appearing demeanour before con-
gressional committees.
"I do not find your testimony credible, can-
didly," Sen. Arlen Specter, the top Republican
on the Senate Judiciary Committee, told Gon-
zales earlier this week. Still, Specter told
reporters there is no sign that Bush's support
for the attorney general was weakening.
"I think that he and Bush are in a kind of
blood pact on this to hang tough," said Bruce
Buchanan, a political science professor at the
University of Texas who has been a longtime
Bush dynasty observer. "And I think that Bush
is leaning on him to stay as well as merely mak-
.ing him feel good by keeping him."
Rather than resign, Gonzales a week ago told
Justice Department employees he planned to
stay and "fix the problems."
Calling himself "a quiet man," Gonzales said:
"No one is more troubled than I am over what
this department has gone through in the past
six months."

The






fun


real






on


Bay Street


EDITOR, The Tribune.
RECENTLY quite a lot has
been said about the suffering
that Atlantis inflicts upon beau-
tiful downtown Nassau. At first
glance, there may not appear
to be all thai much that is
appealing or interesting for vis-
itors to our downtown area.
However, on further reflection,
one can soon, realise just how
many fun tourist attractions,
and potential attractions, there
really are. Some that come to
mind immediately are:
The Bay Street drag races,
nightly from dusk to dawn. Said
to be second in thrills only to
the Collins Avenue races.
Charming and well pre-
served historical buildings and
shipping containers.
Mounds of fetid garbage
that would gladden the heart of


any bacteriologist or epidemi-
ologist.
Alluring restaurants and
watering holes featuring authen-
tic Bahamian fare at reasonable
prices.
Especially fortunate tourists
might get to actually witness an
exciting robbery, mugging or
possibly an escaping prisoner.
Visitors could join a Trea-
sure Hunt to look for, e.g. a
trash container, internet cafe,
or functioning ATM machine
or restroom.
Children, in particular,
would be fascinated by our
abundant wildlife such as rats,
roaches and scavenging pot-


cakes.
Perhaps appearances could
be scheduled for one or two of
our abused and emaciated sur-
rey horses so the kids could
learn to count on their protrud-
ing ribs.
Children could also partake
in games like Spot the Dealer,
Graffiti Artist, Pimp or Cop
(extra points for spotting a
policeman).
Boot scrapers could be
placed strategically to facilitate
the removal of excrement, body
fluids and chewing gum from
footwear.
Finally, tourists seeking
spontaneous standup comedy
could visit our Houses of Par-
liament when in session several
times a year.

Hanging no crime solution


EDITOR, The Tribune.
WHY wasn't I surprised to
hear the minister of national
security state publicly that he was
a proponent of capital punish-
ment? It seems that prime min-
isters always seem to charge per-
sons who are proponents of cap-
ital punishment with responsi-
bility for the prerogative of mer-
cy. The pronouncement by Min-
ister Tommy Turnquest was as
knee jerk as was the similar pro-
nouncement by Wayne Munroe
some months ago. These sim-
plistic reactions are characteristic
of Bahamian responses to com-
plex issues. The end result being
that the society sinks deeper into
a culture of violence. Capital
punishment is indeed a complex
issue. Its judicial purpose is to
punish, but its societal motiva-
tion and reality is revenge. If we
regard human life as God's most
precious gift to mankind then
killing, even by the state, is an
affront to God's gift. Whenever
we murder or execute we
degrade human dignity. When
the state kills it is no less cruel,
inhuman or degrading than the
many senseless murders that now
seem to occur on a daily basis. I
believe that every human being
has the right to life. When the
death penalty is imposed it robs
the convicted killer of that fun-
damental right as much as the
murderer robbed his innocent
victim of his right to life. The


Bahamas has become a very
unforgiving society. It exacts a
terrible toll on its poor, its dis-
abled and the poorly educated.
These are the very persons in the
society who are most victimised
by the biased economic system,
self-serving parliamentarians, a
dysfunctional judicial system and
ironically by violent crimes. Yet
our businessmen, religious lead-
ers. politicians and the President
of the Bar Association cry out
"'Hang 'em high." To pander to
the basest instincts of humans
and to fan the flames of an emo-
tive issue is unbecoming of the
leaders of our country. In the
past the state executed convicted
criminals for all sorts of crimes,
from stealing and gambling to
adultery. In all but the most
backward societies these are no
longer capital crimes. Countries
have progressed and have legis-
lated more enlightened laws, yet
the Bahamas imposes the
mandatory death sentence for
murder even though the Privy
Council had ruled this mandato-
ry sentence as unconstitutional
since 2002. For heaven sakes,
Bahamians, South Africa which
suffered under the apartheid sys-
tem and endured decades of
unspeakable violence and abuse
has abolished the death penalty.
Is there any wonder that
Amnesty International would
speak so disparagingly of
Caribbean leaders in its 2002
report "State Killing in the Eng-
lish Speaking Caribbean: a Lega-
cy of Colonial Times?" The
Report concluded: "Like their
counterparts in the USA and
elsewhere, Caribbean politicians
have found the death penalty a
useful tool in appearing to be
tough on crime. In realty, the
death penalty simply acts as a
distraction to the core issues or
as a sound bite response for
politicians when addressing the
problem of crime." State execu-
tions should not be used as a
political response to the increase
in violent crime. They mask the


real reason why young men
slaughter each other, and they
give the public a false sense of
security. Moreover, in the long
term, executions assist in the
process of dehumanising citizens
and in devaluing human life.
There are countless studies
which show that there is no cor-
relation between state executions
and a reduction in violent crime.
However, there is empirical evi-
dence to demonstrate that the
death penalty is no deterrent to
violent crime. Politicians and the
apologists who support the death
penalty now hide behind the hol-
low claim that state execution is
the law of the land. Well I say if
you believe that it.is a bad law
then you have a duty to repeal
that law. Slavery was once a part
of our laws but it was removed
from the books. The abolition of
slavery had to be forced upon
nineteen century Bahamian
politicians, it would be sad if the
abolition of the death penalty
had to be forced upon twenty
first century politicians. We have
to stop looking and expecting
quick fixes for deep social prob-
lems.
The Antilles Episcopal Con-
ference in 2000 issued a Pastoral
letter which read in part: We
severely reproach politicians who
employ populist rhetoric, at the
expense of moral order and gen-
uine social development...The
gravity of state executions makes
political posturing a grievous
offence against the common
good. Minister Turnquest would
do well to listen to the admon-
ishment of his church leaders.
I believe that we have the
national will to break the cycle of
crime and undo the culture of
violence. Hanging a few black
men every year will not get us
any closer to this national solu-
tion.

US to aid Bahamas financially on



criminal deportee 'reintegration'


By ALISON LOWE
Tribune Staff Reporter
THE Bahamas can soon
expect to benefit from a new
accord with the US that will see
that country providing millions
of dollars to the Caribbean and
Latin America for the "re-inte-
gration" of criminals deported
from the US back to those
regions.
The catalyst for the agree-
ment was a congressional hear-
ing last week Tuesday in Wash-
ington, during which Caribbean
and Latin American represen-
tatives outlined the negative
impact the U S immigration law
has on their societies, accord-
ing to BBC Caribbean.
The law allows for the
mandatory deportation back to
their country of origin of any
non-citizens convicted of crimes
on US soil.
It is not clear precisely how
many criminals have been
deported to the Bahamas under
the law, but senior police
sources have spoken in the past
of the a proportion of those
individual posing a significant
challenge to the force.
Speaking in stronger terms at
the hearing last week, Anne
Marie Barnes, chief technical
adviser at Jamaica's National
Security Ministry, described the
deportation issue as "one of the


Brent Symonette


greatest threats to security in
the Caribbean."
Leaders have argued that the
arrival of criminal deportees


from the US has contributed to
rising crime levels.
Now, under the soon-to-be-
signed agreement, the US will


not only contribute financially
to the nations to which they
deport persons, but will also
share information about the
deportees and their history with
the countries to which they are
being deported.
Money will be put towards
"social re-integration pro-
grammes" to be modelled on
some already piloted in Haiti,
said BBC Caribbean.
Yesterday, a well-placed
police source said that the
agreement will be welcomed by
members of the Royal Bahamas
Police Force who are, thankful
for all the help they can get in
the fight against crime.
Foreign Affairs Minister
Brent Symonette said the
announcement spoke to the suc-
cess of discussions held between
Caribbean leaders and US gov-
ernment officials in June at the
"Conference on the Caribbean"
which both he and Prime Min-
ister Hubert Ingraham attend-
ed.
When returning from a
CARICOM meeting in Barba-
dos in early July, Mr Brent
Symonette said that the law had
been a significant topic of dis-
cussion. He noted that crimi-
nals, some of whom have little
to no familial connection to this
country, do have, in some
instances, significant criminal
knowledge and contacts.


Bahamas committed to strong


partnership with Europeans


THE Bahamas is committed
to a successful partnership with
the European Union in areas
of human rights, sustainable
development, peace and social
justice, Governor General
Arthur Hanna told the Ambas-
sador of the European Com-
mission.
His Excellency Marco Maz-
zocchi Alemanni presented his
credentials to the Governor-
General in a ceremony in the
Ballroom at Government
House this week. He is head of
the delegation of the European
Commission to the Bahamas.
The governor-~general
thanked the EU for its support



FOR iPESTPROBLE'M'
PHNE I 2 25


through a number of develop-
ment initiatives, including hur-
ricane reconstruction, eco-
tourism projects, infrastructure
such as road works and airport
facilities.
"The Bahamas also looks for-
ward to the implementation of
the Eugene Dupuch Law
School project to be undertaken
in co-operation with Caricom
and the European Union," the
governor general said.
He reiterated the Bahamas'
commitment to a successful
partnership with the EU in the
areas of trade and economics, as
affirmed in the Cotonou Agree-
ment of the African Caribbean
and Pacific (ACP) States, and
the Council of the European
Commission.
"I am confident that your
tenure will prove productive in
furthering multilateral co-oper-
ation between the Bahamas and


the European Union," he said.
Ambassador Alemanni
expressed "great respect and
conveyed sincere wishes for
good health, happiness, pros-
perity and welfare" to the
Bahamas. "I am delighted to be
appointed to represent the
European Commission to your
country, which has such a rich
and diversified potential of
human and natural resources,"
he said.
He mentioned the EU's assis-
tance to the Bahamas' efforts
to rebuild infrastructure dam-
aged by Hurricane Frances in
2004, by financing construction
works in Lowe Sound, North
Andros.
"Be assured about my per-
sonal dedication during my tour
of duty to do the utmost to
develop further the excellent
co-operation existing between
the Commonwealth of the


Bahamas and the European
Commission," Ambassador
Alemanni said.
An Italian, Ambassador Ale-
manni was born July 6, 1948.
He also serves as head of dele-
gation of the European Com-
mission to Jamaica, Belize, the
Cayman Islands and Turks and
Caicos Islands.


International media reports
have noted that previous rep-
resentation made to the US by
the region requesting an
amendment of the law has not
succeeded in achieving that aim.
Therefore, Mr Symonette
said at that time that Caribbean
governments were seeking to
have the US provide resettle-
ment funds to aid with the rein-
tegration of deportees many
of whom will be homeless and
jobless when they arrive.
The law has been in place
since 1997. Since that time a
reported 670,000 non-citizen.
immigrants have been deported,


despite the fact that 65 per cent
of them are said to have com-
mitted only minor, non-violent
crimes, according to advocacy
group Human Rights Watch.
That organisation has
described the law as "cruel" due
to its reported effect on an esti-
mated 1.7 million persons in
America who have experienced
the deportation of a family
member and has called for
those in a position to be deport-
ed under the law to be afforded
a hearing where they can lay
out their case as to why they
should be allowed to remain on
US soil.

PROUD parents watched as students dished up a delicious lunch
they prepared at the College of the Bahamas School of Hospital-
ity's Choices Restaurant on July 20.
The children, who range from 10 to 14 years, took part in a five-
day training programme in New Providence and Grand Bahama
aimed at sharpening their.culinary skills.
The children served a three course meal to specially invited
guests during the luncheon.
During the course of the five-day training workshop they were
taught how to prepare mAin course meals, soups and deserts, along
with the important elements of food preparation, storage and pre-
sentation.
A trained instructor guided the children throughout the work-
shop.
The children each took a table and listened to the guest choose
an item from the menu before serving up a delicious meal.

'in heart'


of


fight for youth's


soul


By TANEKA THOMPSON
THE Delta Lambda chapter of Sigma Pi
Phi Fraternity organised a conference for
education reform with a collection of the
country's educational leaders.
As part of the chapter's new "strategic,
plan mandate", the Delta Lambda chapter
decided to tackle Bahamian education with
efforts to create a dialogue on educational
reform with the aim to foster the develop-
ment of Bahamian youth.
"For more than a year we have either
met with or made contact with nearly all the
major stakeholders in Bahamian education,
obtaining their views on where education in
the Bahamas is today and where it can go,"
said Alpheus Finlayson, president of his
chapter and key organiser of the event.
"The first step in our project was to deter-
mine what we would do, (whether to focus
on) crime, immigration or education we
decided on education," he added. "The sec-
ond step was to bring all the stakeholders
together and determine what it is we are
doing. The next step is to determine where
to go from here."
A few of the stakeholders present at
Thursday's conference were the Ministry
of Education, the Bahamas Union of Teach-
ers, the College of the Bahamas, Board of
Catholic Education, Coalition for Education
Reform and the National School Board
Association.


With the country still numb from the
series of violent murders most of them
involving young Bahamian men the con-
ference's keynote speaker, Geoffrey Cana-
da, touched on the poignant issue of reach-
ing out to troubled youth through educa-
tional reform.
Mr Canada, a Harvard graduate, author,
and president and CEO of Harlem Chil-
dren's Zone, has spent years "advocating
for children and families in some of Amer-
ica'~ most devastated communities."
During his address, Mr Canada cast
blame on Fortune 500 advertising compa-
nies and the entertainment industry for cre-
ating a "toxic environment" that has made
death and violence a lifestyle for young
men.
He noted that these companies spend bil-
lions of dollars a year in efforts to get their
message out to impressionable youths, and
said that same drive and tenacity must be
applied to the education of young people.
"There's a whole issue going on in our
communities, that if we don't tackle, we're
going to lose our (younger) generation,"
Mr Canada stated. "We have taken a lead
role in our destruction ... we've ignored
this. (The Bahamas) is right in the heart of
this right now with this issue of violence ...
and how lethal the violence has become."
Mr Canada added that the Bahamian
community "must become a positive sup-
port medium" for young people if there is to


be success in alleviating the plague of inner
city crime and violence.
"It's impossible for kids to succeed in
communities that people wouldn't be caught
dead in," he said.
He implored concerned adults to become
more actively invested in the lives of inner
city youth, instead of locking themselves
behind closed doors thinking that it isn't
their problem.
"For drugs and crime to flourish you need
chaos and disorder. Once you start cleaning
that up, people begin to feel differently and
kids grow up with a different sense of what
it means to be in that community."
One of Mr Canada's educational reform
strategies is to implement a strong early
learning programme that put youths on a
positive, structured path that concentrates
on early childhood development instead of
treating behavioral problems and violence
in primary and high school age children.
"I think we have to create a new para-
digm when it comes to education in these
particular communities that are-most vul-
nerable. The first thing I believe you have to
do is to start early. This is critical. You start
early, make sure you create continual sup-
port and support kids straight through col-
lege." Other speakers at the conference
included J Barrie Farrington of the Coali-
tion for Education Reform, Agatha Archer
from the Ministry of Education and Dr Ian
Strachan, from the College of the Bahamas.

well as cut and bruised arms
and legs. The incident sparked
outrage from the victim's fami-
ly and attracted media atten-
tion. Heild was taken into cus-
tody on Thursday after turning
himself into authorities in
Freeport.
Although Heild admitted
yesterday that he robbed the
87-year-old woman, he
adamantly denied assaulting
her.
% "I never touched her," he
told the magistrate. Hield
claimed that after he took the
money, the elderly woman fol-
lowed him to his car and held
on to it. He told the court that
when he pulled of she fell to the
ground.
"I apologise to her and her
family," Heild said. He
expressed deep remorse over
the incident saying that "Mama
Coe" was like a mother to him.
"She used to feed me every-
day," he said.
He told the court that he did-
n't want to rob the elderly
woman but had to.
Heild told the court that
things got rough after he got
fired from his job on Paradise
Island. He told the court of how
he was forced to sleep in his car
and that his father had recently

he had a son age nine and a
five-year-old daughter.
Heild said that he did not
want to waste the court's time
and questioned whether he
could return the money he had
taken. Magistrate Sylvester
asked him whether he had any
previous convictions.
"Just a little drug charge,"
he told the court however, the
prosecution revealed that he in
fact had several prior convic-
tions, particularly for house-
breaking.
Magistrate Sylvester said that
she took into consideration
Heild's plea of guilt, but also
noted that he had at least nine
counts of stealing, receiving,
housebreaking, escape and bur-
glary against him and that he
had already served three years
in jail for housebreaking and
escape in Exuma. She said that
she also took into consideration

an infected person coughs,
sneezes, talks, spits or sings.
This action releases infectious
droplets into the atmosphere.
It should be noted that trans-
mission is more likely to occur
indoors as the bacillus is
destroyed by direct sunlight.
The common symptoms include
a prolonged cough, fever, night
sweats and weight loss.
Dr Minnis advises that upon
confirmation of a diagnosis of
tuberculosis, persons who have
been in close contact with the
confirmed case should be
screened by way of a Mantoux
skin test.
If positive, a chest x-ray and
sputum specimens may be nec-
essary, he said.
"I wish to advise the public
that having a cough does not
necessarily indicate having
tuberculosis, but certainly per-
sons with prolonged coughing


should consult their physician
or visit a health centre."
Dr Minnis, who was in Grand
Bahama on Thursday for a two-
day official visit and tour of the
public health care facilities on
the island, had to cancel the
remainder of his visit due to an
emergency and flew back to
New Providence on Thursday
evening.
It is not known whether the
tuberculosis reports may have
been the reason for his early
departure.
Dr Minnis said that there is
no need for panic or undue con-
cern, but advised the public to
take sensible precautions.
"It is especially advised that
children be kept away from per-
sons who have suspicious symp-
toms such as prolonged cough-
ing," he said.
He said the Ministry of
Health will keep the public
informed as it continues to
monitor these cases.

"Will Mr Wilchcombe be

Ferguson wanted to know.
"He speaks about democracy

Papers respond to Wilchcombe


FROM page one

losophy in its editorial column.
This, he said, will not change.
In response to Minister
Wilchcombe's assertions that
the "identity" of the three
papers will become one under
the joint operating agreement,
Mr Carron reiterated the state-
ment of Tribune publisher
Eileen Dupuch Carron, earlier
in the week that the three pub-
lications will remain distinct
entities.
"The two newspapers will not
change in any way," said Mr
Carron. "The Tribune's phi-
losophy will remain the same
as will The Nassau Guardian's.
Tribune and Nassau Guardian
reporters will cover the news as
they have always done sepa-
rately," Mr Carron said. "We're
not talking about changes of the
identity of the newspapers,
we're talking about combining
production...combining
resources."
Mr Carron said that this type
of joint operation was to be
found in many media houses
the world over from New York,
Denver, Salt Lake City, and
England. The Bahamas, he said,
was simply catching up to glob-
al practices in the industry.
"Change is always difficult


for people to understand," Mr
Carron said. "But I want to
assure everybody that the
philosophies of the papers will
remain the same as they are
now, they will not be merged
or changed. We're not bringing
them together to have one
paper we want to have two
distinct papers, but we want the
'back of the house' to have
more economic success."
"Why is it, that we cannot
have two entities, with differ-
ent points of view working in
the same environment?" Mr
Carron asked. "The only thing I
can say is that the PLP are
judging us by their precon-
ceived notions, because to be
honest, you have to question
what their motives are."
"We're Bahamians just like
everybody else...we've broken
no laws," said Mr Carron.
"This is a democracy, this is not
a dictatorship, like they would
like you to believe. The irony of
it is that under 25 years of the
PLP they banned private
broadcasting, they made it dif-
ficult, and at election time
impossible for opposition voic-
es to have access to ZNS -
they're the ones who know
more about victimization and
how to practice it and deny free
speech than we do."


At a PLP rally in Marco
City, Grand Bahama on Thurs-
day night, Mr. Wilchcombe crit-
icized the newly formed joint
operating agreement of the
three major dailies. During his
speech, he encouraged the pub-
lic not to purchase any of the
publications, complain to adver-
tisers, as well as lobby members
of parliament and the Prime
Minister to "intervene" in the
merger of the country's two
leading publications. (See story
page 3).
In an exclusive interview on
Friday, Mr Wilchcombe told
The Tribune that the merger of
the three dailies was a "major
breach of the democratic
ideals" of the country. He
added that he was calling for
"strong national opposition" to
the joint operation and urged
the public to lobby advertisers,
members of parliament, and the
Prime Minister to preserve the
journalist's "freedom of expres-
sion."
Minister Wilchcombe also
told The Tribune that during
the next House of Assembly
meeting, he plans to petition
the government to establish an
anti-trust law that would pre-
vent the formation of a monop-
oly and allow for fair competi-
tion among privately owned


companies.
Johnley Ferguson, Chairman
of the FNM, lambasted Minister
Wilchcombe and the PLP for
what he termed "disgraceful"
remarks.
"Mr. Obie Wilchcombe and
his government were in power
for five years. All the things
they are talking about now, they
have done nothing towards
bringing them into fruition. So
he is in no position to authorise
or to tell this government what
(we) must do. This government
will work in the best interest of
the Bahamian people, and that's
it. We will have no dictation
from Mr Wilchcombe or the
PLP."
Mr Ferguson added that he
did not see how it would alter
the state of competition within
the print media market.
When asked whether the
FNM would "intervene" on the
joint operating agreement, Mr
Ferguson replied, "They
haven't broken any law, I don't
think they intend to break any
law, so Mr Wilchcombe and the
PLP should just leave the
Guardian and The Tribune
alone and go find something
(else) to do."
(See the statement of
Guardian president Anthony
Ferguson on this page).


Doctors Hospital receives overflow ambulance calls


FROM page one

A source with ties to the
EMS told The Tribune Friday
morning that four Princess Mar-
garet Hospital ambulances had
been taken out of action by the
strike. At around noon a
reporter from The Tribune lat-
er saw four emergency vehicles
parked in the car park of the
hospital, apparently inactive.
The staff members' labour
concerns were reportedly laid
out in a June 30th letter to the
Minister of Health, Permanent
Secretary, and Director of Pub-
lic Hospital Authority. Their
concerns have not as yet been
addressed, according to a
*source.
Asked yesterday if Health
Minister Hubert Minnis was
aware of the industrial action
S- the disgrutAled EMS source
said she x is not Sure, adding


lightheartedly that "if someone
dies, he'll know."
Contradicting these claims
yesterday Mr Newbold said that
in actual fact all of the EMS
employees' concerns were dealt
with by Thursday but he
believes some staff may not
have been aware of that fact
and therefore went ahead with
the sickout.
Mr Newbold added that he
does not know where claims of
a "tyrannical" managerial style
are "coming from." The direc-
tor said he only does what's fair,
and when necessary.
Dr Minnis, through his sec-
retary, passed on the message
that he had no comment on the
matter.
Chris Johnson, a technician
in the emergency department
in Doctor's Hospital confirmed
on Friday that the unit had been
receiving the "overflow'" calls
from PMH.


"Everything has been accom-
modated at this point thus far,"
he said. However, he added, the
department was still trying to
ascertain how long the strike
would last.
His comments echoed those
of a source with knowledge of
the operations at the Paradise
Island unit, who said that the
period during which.the action
had been taking place was not
"busy" and the EMS had been
able to respond to emergency
calls in a timely fashion.
Staff are allegedly disgrun-
tled that for over a year the
radio system which they use to
communicate with the despatch
centre has not been fully func-
tioning, with the result that
when in southern New Provi-
dence, or some "over-the-hill"
areas, they have no radio con-
tact at all.
.'The source said that this
'places the staff in danger, par-


ticularly when they enter these
areas in the early hours of the
morning, or late at night.
"We told Mr Brown (Herbert
Brown, director of PHA):
'What if something happens to
us?' we have to go deep in
the bushes sometimes at 2, 3am
in the morning," she said.
Mr Newbold yesterday
responded that staff needed to
be patient, and the multi-mil-
lion dollar system will be up
within a few weeks. He added
that, in the meantime, the EMS.
teams have protocols in place
for dealing with potentially dan-
gerous scenarios.
President of the Bahamas
Public Service, John Pinder, is
said to be aware of the situa-
tion. However, attempts to con-
tact Mr Pinder for comment
yesterday were unsuccessful as
he was off the island, and calls
to his cell phone went unan-
swered.

In connection with the Local Government By-

the Parliamentary Commissioner wishes to remind
the public in Man-O-War Cay, Abaco, Polling
Division #2, that under Section 99 of the
Parliamentary Elections Act 1992, all licences
issued under the provisions of the Liquor Licences
Act within five(5) miles of the boundaries of Polling
Division 2, of the South Abaco Constituence, shall
be suspended in that area during the hours
of the day in which the poll is being held.


Any person selling, exposing or offering for sale any
intoxicating liquor during such hours, in the named
area shall be deemed to be so doing while not holding
a licence under the provisions of the Liquor
Licences Act.

from the 2007 poll, that would
give the party a slight edge in the
South Andros seat as Mr Bastian
and Ms Johnson's combined sup-
port is some 1051 votes.
Mr Bastian is a former PLP
member who lost the party's nom-
ination for the South Andros seat
in 2000, reportedly a vote of 15
to 6 at the Candidate Selection
Committee, despite then party
Chairman Obie Wilchcombe's
support.
Mr Bastian is a controversial
figure in the minds of some as he
was convicted of drug related
charges in magistrate court in 1992
- which was later quashed in the
Court of Appeal.
Mr Bastian defeated both the
PLP and FNM candidates in 2002
to shock the nation and win the
South Andros seat.


Eve, Thomas take


medal haul to five


FROM page one
Reminiscent of the clash that
world record holder Javier
Sotomayor had with national
record holder Troy Kemp, Don-
ald went head-to-head with
Cuba's Victor Moya well after
all of the events had finished at
the Joao Havelange Stadium.
When it was all over, Moya
posted a mark of 2.32 metres to
snatch the gold from Thomas,
who wasn't able to respond as
he settled for the silver with
2.30.
Just before their feat, Eve
found enough energy to dig her-
self out of fifth place on her


fourth attempt with her best
toss of 58.10 metres that
enabled her to secure the
bronze.
However, she was unable to
break up the 1-2 Cuban punch
of world record holder Oslei-
dys Menendez, whose season
best of 62.34 captured the gold,
while Sonia Bisset got the sil-
ver with 60.68.
The two medals pushed the
Bahamas' total to five, one gold,
two silver and two bronze, for
15th place in the overall count
and second for the English-
speaking Caribbean behind
Jamaica with eight for 12th
place.

Bastian said:
"I can't join no PLP. I don't
have no friends in the PLP."

The bidding:
North East South West
1 4 Pass 14 Pass
44 Pass 64
Opening lead four of hearts.

Some of the most bothersome
hands to play are those where you are
sure to make the contract, provided
you guess the right way to take a
two-way finesse for a missing queen.
Take this case where six spades is
a cinch to make if declarer knows
which defender has the queen of
clubs. But if he finesses against the
wrong opponent, he goes down,
since the diamond finesse also loses.
Guesses of this type are extremely
aggravating when you come up with


the wrong answer and go down as a
result. They are also embarrassing
because partner always seems to find
a reason why you should have
finessed the other way.
The actual declarer found a way
to improve significantly on his
chances of getting the clubs right
After winning the ace of hearts, he
led a spade to the king, ruffed the
jack of hearts in dummy and played
another round of trumps.
He then cashed the ace of clubs
and led the jack of clubs, playing low
after East followed low. When the
jack held, the slam was home, and
South now tried for seven by taking
the diamond finesse. Although this
lost, declarer had the rest of the
tricks.
Why did South decide to play the
clubs the way he did rather than
finesse West for the queen? The
answer is that he would not only
make the slam whenever East had
started with any number of clubs
including the queen essentially a
50 percent chance but also when-
ever West started with the doubleton
queen, roughly an additional 14 per-
cent chance. In this latter case, West
would be endplayed after winning
the queen, since either a diamond
return into the A-Q or a heart return,
yielding a ruff-and-discard, would
hand South the contract

SATURDAY,
JULY 28
ARIES March 21/April 20
You've got to be aggressive early in
the week, Aries there's a lot to get
done. A close friend has a secret
agenda when he or she asks you out.
TAURUS April 21/May 21
That special someone wants to take
your relationship to a whole new level.
Are you ready, Taurus? Think care-
fully before you answer. An old friend
stops by to say hello on Thursday.
GEMINI May 22/June 21
Be determined this week, Gemini.
Friends and colleagues will try to
distract you from the task at hand. A
loved one gets into trouble and
needs your help. Take time out to
listen and give your best advice.
CANCER June 22/July 22
Your sense of humor draws plenty of
attention. You form a close friend-
ship with an unlikely stranger. A for-
mer colleague will call you for help.
Do what you can, for old time's sake.
LEO July 23/August 23
Although you're sure to get a lot
done before Thursday, it's still
going to be a frustrating week. Keep
working hard; you'll have a chance
to relax this weekend.
VIRGO Aug 24/Sept 22
Don't be overly critical of yourself
after a simple mistake. No one else
thinks worse of you, and dwelling
on it is not very constructive.
LIBRA Sept 23/Oct 23
No, you can't do it yourself. Now's
the time to swallow your pride and
ask a friend for help with a project
that has been giving you trouble.
After all, nobody's perfect.
SCORPIO Oct 24/Nov 22
A loved one needs your advice about
a relationship. Be honest, even
though the truth may be hard to hear.
A work problem will require all of
your craftiness. Go to it!
SAGITTARIUS Nov 23/Dec 21
Don't be surprised if you find your
workload mounting this week,
Sagittarius. Everyone's giving you
more work because they kfiow you
can handle it. Things will settle down
by Thursday.
CAPRICORN Dec 22/Jan 20
This may be a good time to finish a
project you've been putting off for
some time. Your physical and men-
tal energies are at their peak, leav-
ing you well-armed for the task.
AQUARIUS Jan 21/Feb 18
Capricorn plays a role in a sticky
argument at work earlier in the
week. Don't let this person get to
you. He or she is only jealous.
PISCES Feb 19/March 20
Don't be too generous with your
time this week, Pisces. You' have
plenty of your own needs to attend
to. Be sure to leave plenty of time
for fun this weekend!

Boris Spassky v Julius Kozma,

Yesterday's puzzle featured a
rare defeat for the young
Spassky, today's is back to
normal with a win for the later
world champion. Boris (White,
to move) is bishop for pawn
ahead, but appears to have a
problem as Black threatens
Ral + and Qa4+ or even better
Qa4 with Ral mate. White's king
may be able to run to safety at
e3, but Spassky had a much
better idea, forcing a rapid
victory. What should he play? If
