Fear in quiet Fox St George family arrives at court No new TB
s esac since


Hill community


after father of


two is shot dead


- By BRENT DEAN
Tribune Staff Reporter.
RESIDENTS of a quiet Fox
Hill suburb are 'in a state of
shock and fear after a 24-year-
old man was gunned down the
latest killing in a record year
for murders in the Bahamas.
Theophilus Dean became the
nation's 50th murder victim this
year in what, according to
neighbours, appeared tp be a
calculated assassination.
Around 10pm on Thursday,
a neighbour said the electric-
ity went off in the Smith
Street area of the Freddy
Munnings sub-division, as
those believed to be involved
in the murder reportedly used
a metal chain to sabotage the
power system.
"Everybody thought that it
was just the current going off,"
she said.
However, after she had put
her children to sleep, around
llpm, "shots went off".
"Everybody thought it was
firecrackers. We didn't know
the man did get kill in his yard.
We heard all the commotion
and two boys came through
here screaming, saying 'Oh lord,
the man dead, the man dead'.
And then everybody came out-
side and saw him over there,"
she added.
The source and police reports
confirm that the victim had
arrived home accompanied by a
female when he was lured to his


back yard by someone calling
his name. Upon going to his
backyard following the myste-
rious call, Mr Dean was shot
multiple times to the right upper
chest.
The critically injured father-
of-two staggered across the
street, struggling to survive,
before collapsing in the dirt in
front of his neighbour' yard,
where he died.
"This disturbs everybody (in
the community) because this is
a nice, quiet place," the rneigh-
bour said.
"Everybody is scared," she
added, indicating that the new
community is relatively safe.
Another neighbour told The
Tribune Friday morning that
she "has not slept yet."
The neighbour said she did
not go near the body, but on
leaving her house to inquire
about all the commotion, she
could see the man lying just a
few yards down the street.
"My heart goes out to his
family, because this is sad," she
said.
"These young people need to
stop and think that's some-
body's father, somebody's son,
somebody's uncle," she said.
Chief Supt Hulan Hanna said
police do not have a. motive at
this time, but believe three men
were involved.
Mr Dean has left behind two
sons. One is a seven-month-old
infant, and the other a three-
year-old toddler.

last week,

says minister

* By BRENT DEAN
Tribune Staff Reporter
THE Minister of Health has
announced that no additional
cases of tuberculosis have been
reported since the four cases
declared last week.
Dr Hubert Minnis yesterday.
updated The Tribune on his
ministry's efforts to contain the
infectious disease.
Last week, the ministry
reported two new cases of TB in
Nassau in recent weeks along
with one in Eleuthera and
another in Abaco.
In addition to treating and
monitoring those infected and
possibly exposed in Nassau, Dr
Minnis said that teams have
travelled to affected islands to
follow the same process..

Voters in Pinewood have flocked to prove

their right to vote, says FNM chairman


* By KARIN HERIG
Tribune Staff Reporter
MOST of those whose names
were submitted to the courts as
having allegedly voted improp-
erly in the Pinewood con-
stituency have contacted FNM
headquarters in a bid to prove
they had the right to vote in the
May 2 election. FNM chairman
Johnley Ferguson said yester-
day.
Mr Ferguson told The Tri-
bune that, of 266 persons list-
ed in the court docket as voters
who allegedly voted improperly,
many had presented the FNM
with documentation to prove
they were entitled to vote in the


constituency.
"They brought all kinds of
receipts, telephone bills, to show
us that they live in Pinewood,
that they had the right to vote,"
he said.
He said that most of the 266
voters had already contacted
the FNM to express their out-
rage at.being named.
"People have been calling
(FNM Pinewood) headquarters
and we've been working with
them trying to sort things out,"
he said.
"To date, most of them have
contacted headquarters to com-
plain, to say that they are insult-
ed that their names were listed
as persons who voted illegally.


They are very upset over the
whole, process," he said.
A press advertisement pub-
lished this week listed 266 peo-
ple reportedly named in the
court docket of the PLP's elec-
tion court case for Pinewood.
The advertisement does not
state explicitly that it was placed
by the FNM, but it advises those
on the list to contact FNM
headquarters in Pinewood if
they were entitled to vote.
One version of the ad says
"Allyson Maynard-Gibson says
'You are not entitled to vote'."
Addressing the matter in the
Senate this week, Mrs May-
nard-Gibson said the advertise-
ment was not placed by her or


anyone associated with her.
"It was a lie. It had in quotes
,words that I never said," she
added.
The former Attorney Gener-
al told the Senate that the
advertisement was one put in
by "cowards who are simply
hiding."
She challenged the FNM to
cease and desist from coercing
the constituents of her former
constituency.
"Stop asking people in
Pinewood to come to your
headquarters to swear lies in
affidavits. That's called per-
jury." she said.

Environmentalist warns valuable wetland

habitats endangered by development

BAHAMIAN wetlands are
disappearing at an alarming
rate, a leading environmentalist
has warned,
Eric Carey, executive director
of the Bahamas National Trust
(BNT), said wetlands are being
filled in to accommodate rapid
development, destroying not
only habitats and wildlife but
also creating flooding night-
mares, especially on New Prov-
idence.
"Collectively, private citizen-
ry, the government, the BNT
and other non-government
organizations have to harness
our energies towards protect-
inm what is left. not only for
wildlife. but most importantly
for people to have quality of
life." Mri (arey said.
"A\ decision should be made


that there be no more develop-
ment on wetlands on this island,
and developments on wetlands
on other islands have to be care-
fully planned and monitored,"
he said.
Mr Carey said the Trust is
also very concerned with
expanding existing national
parks in the country, increasing
their numbers and getting more
funding.
He praised the government
for its donation of $1 million to
the Trust.
"For many years, our donors
have said to us, 'You have to
get the government to really do
more.'
"They see this as a strong sig-
nal sent by government that it
supports the BNT, and we
believe this is going to encour-


age other persons to give the
BNT funding and resources to
do our work," Mr Carey said.
He said the Trust hopes to
put in place $3 million worth of
trails, visitor centres, board-
walks and viewing towers at the
Harrold and Wilson Ponds
National Park.
Mr Carey said the Trust
wants both Bahamians and vis-
itors to have access to national
parks..
He said the director of lands
and surveys had been asked to
grant the Harrold and Wilson
Ponds National Park to tice
Trust so it can properly upkeep
the area as well as put in infra-
structure to make it more acces-
sible to the public.
Mr Carey said that is also the
case with the Bonetish Nation-


al Park in southern New Provi-
dence, which presently cannot
really accommodate the-pub-
lic.
"As we think about how
Bahamians are being crowded
out of beach access, we believe
this creates an incredible oppor-
tunity.

Shop staff member shot in raid


* By PAUL TURNQUEST
Tribune Staff Reporter
AN employee of Miden's
Wholesale was shot in the leg
on Thursday night after refusing
to hand over a deposit bag to a
masked gunman in the store's
parking lot.
According to Chief Superin-
tendent of Police Hulan Han-
na, the employee has been
treated and discharged from
hospital.
However, despite the
employee's attempts, the
masked gunman still made his
getaway with the store's deposit
bag.
Said Mr Hanna: "An employ-
ee of Midens Wholesale on East
Street had just left the estab-


lishment and was going to his
vehicle when a gold Honda
Accord pulled across the front
of his vehicle.
"A masked gunman exited
the vehicle, approached the
employee and demanded cash."
It was at this point, Mr Hanna
said, that the employee refused
the gunman, and was shot in the
right leg. The gunman took the
deposit bag which reportedly
held a substantial amount of
cash and fled the scene in the
Honda Accord.
Police are still actively search-
ing for the culprit.
In other police news, the
country recorded its 26th traffic
fatality when a 50-year old man
was crushed by a Mack truck in
Andros on Thursday night.


According to Mr Hanna,
Patrick Newton was reportedly
a passenger on a red Mack
truck being driven by Michael
King.
Mr King, he said, was driving
north on Lisborne Creek
around 8.25pm when he hit a
"bump".
Mr King reported exited the
' vehicle to investigate and it was
at this point that he found Mr
Newton who was known to
him laying beneath the vehi-
cle.
Mr Newton reportedly died
instantly from "massive head
injuries".
Investigations into this fatali-
ty are being conducted by traf-
fic personnel in Andros, Mr
Hanna said.

Society

signs for

new home
THE Humane Society of
Grand Bahama announced
yesterday that a contract has
been signed with Albacore
Construction for the building
of a new shelter on Coral
Road in Freeport.
John Gallagher, president
of Albacore Construction,
said mobilisation has already
begun. He expects on site
work to begin on August 6
and estimates a completion
date of March 2008.
"We are looking forward
to working on this project
with the Humane Society and
will make sure this is a state
of the art animal shelter," Mr
Gallagher.
He went on to explain that it
will include 42 inside dog ken-
nels, spacious cat rooms,
offices, food storage and
preparation areas, grooming
and exam areas and noted that
there is plenty of room on the
property for future expansion.
Humane Society president
Chris Johnston thanked the
board, staff and members of
the community who he said
have all worked very hard for
a long time to make this
dream finally become a reality.
"We have completely out-
grown our current premises,
which is antiquated and was
further dilapidated by the
three hurricanes, so we are
extremely excited about work
finally beginning on our new
shelter," Mr Johnston said.
An official groundbreak-
ing ceremony is expected to
take place within the next few
weeks.

na Hill, pleaded guilty to

and attention on July 28, dri-
ving without third party risk
insurance, and driving with-
out a valid driver's licence.
On the first count, Acting
Deputy Chief Magistrate Helen

He was also ordered to pay
$200 or serve one month in
prison on the second count;
to pay $400 or serve three
months in prison on the third
count, and to pay $400 or

Club between July 13 and July
16 with the intent to steal.
He pleaded not guilty to
this charge and the matter
was adjourned to November
12. He was granted $5,000
bail with one surety.


for immigration crackdown


SENATOR Elma Campbell
yesterday moved to dispel fears
that the FNM is about to begin
conducting immigration round-
ups under a new initiative.
She explained that there are
plans for the Department of
Immigration to begin conduct-
ing public audits of applicants
for naturalisation and citizen-
ship in New Providence on
Wednesday, August 8.
'"We want to emphasise that
this public audit exercise is
exactly what we say it is. It is
not by any means an immigra-
tion round-up or any such law
enforcement exercise," she said.
"1 therefore urge all concerned
to take advantage of this oppor-
tunity to regularise their status
in the Bahamas.
She added: "Let me empha-
sise here, however, that in
addressing the public audit and
all immigration matters, this
government will put the nation-
al interest of the Bahamas and
the Bahamian people first."
The audits will be for persons
who submitted applications pri-
or to April 30, 2007, and also
those whose applications
remain outstanding.
Mrs Campbell said the initia-
tive is part of government's
commitment to articulate apd
implement a medium to long-
term immigration policy pro-
viding for timely, transparent
and expeditious application
processes; the regularisation of
the status of long-time residents
and the registration of children
born abroad to married
Bahamian women.
She said public audits will
also be held on the islands of
Grand Bahama and Abaco and
are being conducted "prepara-
tory to the regularisation of the
status of those entitled to natu-
ralisation and citizenship."
Mrs Campbell said the initia-
tive, together with the other
efforts the department is under-
taking with regards to out-
standing work and residency
permits will "put us in a better
position to address the complex
and vexing problem of illegal
immigration a serious and
long-standing issue in our coun-
try.
"We expect that the granti-
ng of Bahamian citizenship to
persons who are entitled or
qualified, will be the principal
outcome of the audit initiative,"
Mrs Campbell said.
She said there have been
appeals for the government to
address the "inordinate delay"
in the processing of persons
entitled to Bahamian status -
particularly with respect to per-
sons of Haitian origin born in
the Bahamas, who in accor-
dance with the constitution,
applied to be registered as citi-
zens within the prescribed peri-
od, but for whom no decision
has yet been taken.
"Consequently, these persons
have difficulty accessing high-
er education and the employ-
ment market and are otherwise
constrained in their aspirations
to be good members of societies
and communities in a country
in which they have lived since
their birth," Mrs Campbell said.



32-25


Elma Campbell announces

'public audit' of applicants


"We would not want such
persons to become inflamed
through frustration, nor would
we want deep, ethnic divisions
to develop in our country. At
the same time, we expect those
who would express a strong
desire to become Bahamian
nationals to have a clear-cut
commitment to this country, its
ideals and values and to make
their necessary contribution to
nation-building.

Expectations

"We would expect them to
uphold the constitution and
laws of our country, including
those against illegal immigra-
tion," she said. "As for all
Bahamian citizens, we would
want their clear understanding
that continuing illegal immigra-
tion will adversely affect our
stability, national security and
our quality and standard of life
and therefore must not be con-
doned or encouraged."
Mrs Campbell said the gov-
ernment is "heeding the call"
to put in place a comprehensive
and realistic immigration policy


and a strategy to implement
that policy.
"A critical part of that strate-
gy is a transparent, efficient and
effective process, applied in an
impartial way for the regulari-
sation of persons legally enti-
tled to status in the Bahamas.
Our public audits move this
process along," she added.
The New Providence audits
will be held August 8 to 9
between the hours of 10am and
6pm at the C R Walker Senior
High School Auditorium on
Baillou Hill Road.
Public audits will be conduct-
ed in Grand Bahama on
Wednesday, August 29, and
Abaco on Friday, August 31, at
venues to be announced at a
later date.
To ensure that all outstanding
applications are dealt with in
an efficient and expeditious
manner, applicants are request-
ed, where possible, to be in pos-
session of their original receipts
and/or letters issued by the
Department of Immigration,
along with copies of all other
relevant documents that were
submitted with their applica-
tions.

A recent ABC News/Washington Post
poll revealed that 71 per cent of Americans
favour the increased use of public surveil-
lance cameras as part of an effort to deter
crime and apprehend criminals and ter-
rorists.
Only 25 per cent of Americans oppose
government plans to install more surveil-
lance cameras.
That's good news for those citizens who
support the will of the majority, because
surveillance cameras are proliferating like
bunnies in many of the nation's larger
cities.
No doubt their use will trickle down to
smaller cities and villages.
Part of the nation's newfound love of
self-surveillance stems from a fear of ter-
rorism. Americans figure more terrorist
attacks are coming. It's a matter of when,
not if.
The British government first turned to
surveillance cameras in an attempt to curb
terrorist bombings by the Irish Republi-
can Army. Now the. surveillance cameras
are on the lookout for Islamic fundamen-
talist terrorists.
There were fewer than a dozen surveil-
lance cameras in Britain in 1991. Today,
there are more than four million, including
nearly a quarter of a million cameras in
London.
New York City officials are planning to
emulate London's Ring of Steel surveil-
lance system in Lower Manhattan.
The Lower Manhattan Security Initia-
tive calls for the purchase of license plate
readers and 3,000 public and private sur-
veillance cameras.
There also will be a new police surveil-


lance centre and movable roadblocks.
The New York Civil Liberties Union
estimates that there are 4,000 public and
private surveillance cameras in use now in
downtown Manhattan.
Opponents of the New York plan argue
that surveillance cameras will not prevent
suicide bombers. They note that all the
surveillance cameras in London did not
prevent the bomb attacks on the city's
transportation system or did anything to
stop the recent attempted car bombings
by Muslim doctors and health care workers.
Supporters argue that surveillance cam-
eras might catch terrorists before they act
if other information is developed in
advance of a planned attack.
Besides, the British surveillance cameras
were invaluable in assisting authorities to
apprehend the terrorists and their sup-
porters following the attacks.
Combating terrorism is not the only rea-
son surveillance cameras are becoming
more popular in the United States.
The Chicago Police Department has
installed more than 500 surveillance cam-
eras that officials say have resulted in more
than 1,200 arrests since February 2006.
Chicago officials report that citizens com-
plain if the police attempt to move sur-
veillance cameras from their neighbour-
hoods to another part of the city.
The popular support of surveillance cam-
eras in Chicago mirrors the recent nation-
al polls.
A large majority of Americans believe
the added security provided by surveil-
lance cameras outweighs the loss of priva-
cy some citizens might feel when their pub-
lic movements are captured by remote-
controlled cameras and scrutinized by
police and security officials.
Los Angeles, Baltimore and other cities
are planning to expand the use of public
surveillance cameras.
For citizens who fear the tyranny of the
majority, this is not a happy turn of events.
Safeguards must be built into the sur-
veillance systems to prevent improper
snooping into the private activities of law-
abiding citizens.

Tribute to a





Bahamian





educator


EDITOR, The Tribune.
THANK you for this space
in your valuable column.
I thought I must take the time
to write about a great Bahami-
an educator, and priest who
passed earlier this year. The
person of whom I speak is
Canon Dudley Strachan.
I first came into contact with
this great Bahamian who hailed
from Rum Cay during the
month of September, 1970
when I entered Saint John's
College High School which was
situated on Market Street.
The rules of Saint John's
were inflexible. Socks must be
white; shoes must be either
black or brown, not a combina-
tion of both. Shirts and blouses
were to be tucked away neatly
always, no exceptions. Only the
Physical Education uniform
authorized by the school could
be worn, and that only at P.E.
classes. If your P.E. Class ended
shortly before 3.00 pm, you had
to changeover as you were not
allowed to leave the school's
premises and walk the streets
of New Providence in sport rig.
For the female students, the
skirts had to be at an accept-
able length, and if they were
not so, the matter was reme-
died on the spot by Mrs Stra-
chan and her ubiquitous scis-
sors.
Tardiness was not tolerated,
hence, if one was late more than
once within one week, deten-
tion was inevitable, You were
given two demerits for tardi-
ness. Three demerits earned
you a detention. Three deten-
tions earned you corporal pun-
ishment and a suspension.
Three suspensions and you
were seen as incorrigible and
you were expelled. One could
get a week of detentions for
defaulting on a home work
assignment.
The staffs (expats and
Bahamians) were of a high stan-


dard, and they demanded the
same from students. Everyone
started out evenly in Form 1
where the First Forms took the
first initial of the surnames of
their teachers for identification,
for example, 1,S would be the
Home Room of Mrs Strachan
etc. By Second Form, the forms
were categorized as A, B and
C. The persons who came last,
and second to the last (which
were announced at assembly)
had to have a higher average
then those who came first and
second in the group beneath
them or you exchanged places
with them.
Yes, Canon Strachan ran a
disciplined, well organized, aca-
demically respected school. The
most important lessons learned
there (for me) came from the
man himself. I noticed that
although he seemed in pain as
he walked, he never com-
plained. He was a great lover
of sports and despite his handi-
cap, he could play a mean game
of table tennis. He presided at
Mass where he proclaimed the
mercy of God, and was just as
passionate in disciplinary much
needed correction with the
cane. The lesson here was God
is merciful, but God is also just.
I saw an example of justice and
mercy that I have never forgot-
ten. Some students were caught
shoplifting while in uniform
downtown Bay Street. So
respected was Canon Strachan
that the matter was turned over
to him, rather than the police.
The students were given the
option of expulsion, or confess-
ing their misdeed before the
school, being caned, and given
detentions. They opted for the
latter. Canon Strachan had a
passion for education and I am


told that he made it possible for
many deserving underprivileged
family islanders to attend St.
John's. As much as he had a
passion to win at sports, he
would never cheat or cut cor-
ners. If an athlete had trans-
gressed by behaviour or acade-
mically, by not being up to stan-
dard, they were not allowed to
compete. At the time I could
not appreciate any of this as this
caused St. John's the track meet
one year when we were close
to winning. The lesson in prin-
ciple, however, was never for-
gotten by this student. St. John's
was not allowed to boo their
opponents at sporting events.
Other schools booed us unmer-
cifully, but we were only
allowed to cheer our side, and
clap politely for our foes. Canon
Strachan has gone the way of
all the earth, as no doubt we all
shall, but his legacy has immor-
talized him.
He was fond of saying,
(although I believe the origina-
tor was Mrs Eneas, another
great educator), "in this life,
there are not punishments or
rewards, only consequences."
His legacy as was said on a
plaque in St Paul's Cathedral
London, of its architect Sir
Christopher Wren, "Stranger if
you would know his legacy look
around you." This is true also of
*Canon Strachan as you look
about you in our Bahama Land.
From the Halls of Parliament,
to the Civil Service, in Bank-
ing, Education, Health, the
Priesthood and even private
entrepreneurship. His students
bear his indelible stamp of loy-
alty, competence, excellence
and integrity.
In closing I say to him "Ave
et que Vale, Requiscat in pace
magister".

Construction firm's comment


EDITOR, The Tribune
THE purpose of this letter is
to clarify any misconceptions
and rumours that have some-
what been associated with me
and my company in various
news articles and media forums.
Woslee Dominion Construc-
tion is a 100 per cent Bahamian
owned general contracting and
construction management com-


pany which has performed and
been involved in a variety of
private and public projects at
all levels for the past seven
years. It is a professional organ-
isation with a highly qualified
management team which com-
prises of both Bahamians and
expatriates, a make up which is
no different from any of the
large Bahamian based contrac-
tors such as Cavalier, Mosko

and CGT. Gone are the days
when the term contractor is pri-
marily defined as someone who
drives a truck and carries a tool
belt, the construction industry
has evolved to where the man-
agement process has taken
precedence thus requiring pro-
fessional skills both at the
administrative and field level.
It is unfortunate that the major-
ity of these positions have to be
filled by expatriates, but there
are just not enough Bahamians
with the required skills, skills
which are often demanded by
many of the foreign investors
who undertake the large scale
development projects.
I am a qualified construction
professional and civil engineer
who has been directly involved
in managing construction pro-
jects totalling in excess of $250
million both in the Bahamas
and USA. As a businessman I
am offended when my name
and/or my company's name is
used as a political football and
portrayed in a negative light by
professionals and others in an
attempt to gain business or per-
sonal advantages.
Furthermore, we as Bahami-
ans and the public at large owe
it to ourselves to be more dili-
gent in the pursuit of the facts
instead of relying on rumours
and hearsay to draw conclu-
sions, especially when the cred-
ibility of individuals and organ-
isations is at stake.
In concluding, I challenge
and encourage other Bahami-
ans to empower themselves
with the necessary skills to take
advantage of the economic
opportunities that are presented
within the construction indus-
try. As a professional, I will con-
tinue to refrain from any open
discussion on contracts that my
company is currently involved
in so as to respect the confiden-
tiality of these agreements. I do,
however, reserve the right to
make any relevant comments
in the future.

o In brief

Dozens of
doctors
arrested for
licence fraud
* PUERTO RICO
San Juan
DOZENS of foreign-trained
doctors accused of obtaining
Puerto Rican medical licences
through fraud or bribery were
arrested in raids across the
island Thursday, according to
Associated Press.
A federal grand jury indict-
ed 88 doctors following an
investigation into members of
the US Caribbean territory's
medical licensing board who
allegedly altered low-scoring
tests to certify unqualified can-
didates.
The doctors, mostly Puerto
Ricans who studied medicine in
the Dominican Republic, Mex-
ico or Cuba, paid board mem-
bers bribes of as much as
$10,000, according to the indict-
ment. At least 75 of them were
practicing medicine in Puerto
Rico, including some at hospi-
tals or emergency rooms,
authorities said.
The arrests began near dawn.
Some suspects including Pablo
Valentin, a former executive
director of the licensing board -
were seen on television being
led away by local police and
agents of the US Food and
Drug Administration.
The Drug Enforcement
Administration also is checking
pharmacy records to determine
whether the suspects prescribed
medications, which could
prompt felony charges as vio-
lations of the Controlled Sub-
stances Act, spokesman Waldo
Santiago said.
Most of the accused failed the
licensing exam multiple times.
One man who earned a med-
ical degree in Spain failed the
exam 16 times between 1974
and 2001 before he was granted
a medical licence in 2002,
according to the indictment.

Treasure
hunters knock
out power to
thousands

GUYANA
Georgetown
MINERS searching for gold
and diamonds knocked out
water service to thousands
when they dug up the main
road leading to a remote
Guyanese jungle community,
severing underground pipes,
according to Associated Press.
Guyanese authorities traveled
to the mining village of Mah-
dia near the nation's border
with Brazil to stop dozens of
small-scale miners from churn-
ing up more roads and leaving
deep trenches in their search
for diamonds and gold deposits.
"No mining of roadways will
be allowed. This is unlawful,"
Public Works Minister Robe-
son Benn said Thursday in a
phone interview shortly after
ordering a halt to all unlicensed
mining in the mountain com-
munity about 200 miles south-
west of the capital, Georgetown.
Kellawan Lall, an adviser to
Guyanese President Bharrat
Jagdeo, said the government .
will have to cut a new road
through dense forest due to the
extensive damage by unlicensed
Guyanese miners and Brazilian
prospectors, or "garimpeiros."
"From what we have seen it
would be too costly to repair
the roads," he said.
The illegal prospectors used a
mechanical dredger and tradi-
tional pickaxes in recent days
to excavate sections of the main
road leading into Mahdia,
according to Lall.
Workers on Thursday were
repairing severed underground
water pipes that supply nearly
15,000 inhabitants. Authorities
could not estimate when service
would be restored.

PLP senators back airport act -




but voice their reservations


* By BRENT DEAN
Tribune Staff Reporter
THOUGH supporting the
government's amendment to
the Airport Authority Act,
which gives private entities the
ability to manage security and
fire services at the airport, the
PLP leader in the Senate
argued that the government
needs to be more specific and
declare who will receive the
managerial power.
Allyson Maynard-Gibson
made her contribution to the
debate in the Senate on Thurs-
day, raising this and other ques-
tions regarding the amendment.
Mrs Maynard-Gibson par-
ticularly questioned the lines
of responsibility for security at
the airport once private man-
agement is introduced, partic-
ularly relating to the role of the
police in such an arrangement.


Additionally, she asked,
"what measures are in place
for the people of the Bahamas
to sign off on the operator of
security services? We note,
Madame president, that
YVRAS (Vancouver Airport
Services) is not a security
expert. Indeed, YVRAS does
not operate the security of
Vancouver airport," she said.
Mrs Maynard-Gibson also
raised the issue of whether the
government simply intended to
give YVRAS complete unfet-
tered authority to choose the
security management supplier
of their choice, or if the gov-
ernment has a party already
selected for this contract.
"This decision to privitise the
management of the airport's
security," Mrs Maynard-Gib-
son said, "was not divulged in
the FNM manifesto" -just as,
she added, the decision to dis-


miss Bahamian workers and
cancel the Straw Market con-
tract among others, were too
not in the manifesto.
Mrs Maynard-Gibson's con-
tribution also raised the ques-
tion of how the government
will recoup the $19 million
already spent on airport secu-
rity, if management of this area
transitions into private control
- a question posed to the gov-
ernment by former Transport
Minister Glenys Hanna-Mar-
tin during her contribution on
this debate in the House.
The PLP Senate leader sug-
gest that the government create
a national transportation secu-
rity agency in the Bahamas,
similar to that of the Trans-
portation Security Administra-
tion in the US.
This federal body is a com-
ponent of the department of
Homeland Security and was


* ALLYSON Maynard-Gibson

created after the September 11
terrorist attacks. Currently, it
oversees security for highways,
railroads, buses, mass transit


systems, ports and the 450 US
airports.
The bill passed in the Sen-
ate on Thursday.


Kerzner set to expand One&Only brand


KERZNER International
has entered into an agreement
to operate a new One&Only
resort in Cacique, Costa Rica.
The agreement between
Kerzner International,
through its subsidiaries, and
Revolution Places Develop-
ment, will create a new luxury
resort with 120 villa-style
rooms.
Construction is expected to
be completed by 2010.
"We have been looking to
develop another One&Only
resort in Latin America fol-
lowing the success of
One&Only Palmilla in Los
Cabos, Mexico," said Sol
Kerzner, chairman and chief
executive officer of Kerzner
International.
"When we saw the site in
Costa Rica, we knew that we
found a magnificent location
ideally suited for creating the
One&Only experience in
Central America. We are con-
fident the resort will be well
received by our many loyal
One&Only guests and new
guests alike."
Revolution Places owns the
650-acre site, .known as
Cacique, Costa Rica, on which
the One&Only resort will be


N SOL KERZNER


located.
Cacique offers varying
topography and stunning
views of the Pacific Ocean, of
which the new resort design
will take full advantage.
The new resort will also
incorporate a 12,000 square
foot spa, its own exclusive
beach club, three restaurants
and bars, and a meeting space,
including a boardroom.

based HKS Hill Glazier Stu-

OIn brief

Fear suspects
will flee after
collapse of
bond company

PUERTO RICO
San Juan

THE failure of Puerto
Rico's largest bail bond com-
pany, which held guarantees
on thousands of criminal
defendants, is prompting
fears that some of them may
not show up for trial, accord-
ing to Associated Press.
The local Justice Depart-
ment filed emergency
motions for courts across the
US Caribbean territory to
instruct suspects covered by
the Puerto Rico Bonding Co.
to arrange for substitute bail
this week or risk arrest.
"Obviously this has us wor-
ried," Jose Delgado, acting
chief prosecutor, said
Wednesday. "It becomes a
public safety issue, given some
of these people are accused
of sex crimes and killings."
In exchange for vouching
for defendants, bail bond
companies charge an insur-
ance premium and take a
pledge of collateral, usually
cash or real estate from fam-
ily or friends. If a-defendant
fails to show up for court,
those assets can be seized by
the company.
After Puerto Rico Bond-
ing collapsed in June under
the weight of bad invest-
ments, the government gave
notice it would honor its com-
mitments until July 26 to
allow suspects to make alter-
nate plans for bonding.
The passing of the dead-
line left more than 200 defen-
dants uncovered and poten-
tially prone to fleeing with-
out having to forfeit any col-
lateral, Delgado said.

Police look
into AIDS
cure claims of
psychiatrist

DOMINICAN REPUBLIC
Santo Domingo

DOMINICAN police shut.
down the laboratory of a
prominent psychiatrist and
former Santo Domingo may-
or who claims he cured more
than 50 people of AIDS by
injecting them with an
unknown substance, prose-
cutors said Thursday, accord-
ing to Associated Press.
Police raided the lab of
Jose Ramon Baez Acosta on
Wednesday after receiving
complaints from former
patients, said Luisa Matos, a
spokeswoman for the Santo
Domingo Province District
Attorney.
Investigators seized sam-
ples of the formula dubbed
"Uman TS," medical equip-
ment and two pigs and a don-
key that Baez Acosta was
apparently using for tests.
Baez Acosta, who served
as mayor of the Dominican
capital in the mid-1960s, did
not return phone calls to his
office seeking comment. Last
week he told the newspaper
El Caribe he had cured 52
people of AIDS, and that
God revealed the treatment
to him in a dream.


Too big for the big screen?


THE SIMPSONS MOVIE

Starring (voices): Dan
Castel/antcta, .lhlie Kavner,
Nancy Cartwriht, Yeardlev
Smith, Hank Al-aria

THE leap from TV to the
big screen has been a fatal one
for many a popular show and
it's little wonder the process is
so difficult. The running time
has to be expanded consider-
ably, there are the uninitiated
in the audience to worry about
and there's the temptation to
generally overdo all the ele-
ments that have made the
show a hit to justify a ticket
price.
The Simpsons Movie clev-
erly addresses this very prob-
lem early on, when Homer
stands up in a movie theatre
and shouts: "I can't believe
we're paying for something we
get to watch on television for
free!"
It's a good gag but 1, as a
long-time Simpsons fan, did-
n't agree with Homer: I paid in
the hopes of watching exactly
the same thing I get on TV for
free. And, unfortunately, that
isn't what I gotl.
Instead of packing the
longer running time with the
show's usual overflow of gags,


E IN this image released by 20th Century Fox, a scene from The Simpsons Movie is shown.


brilliant peripheral characters
and general mayhem, The
Simpson's Movie seems to
stretch 25 minutes to feature


length. And that leaves a lot
of empty space.
The story focuses loosely on
environmental issues. Exces-

sive pollution in Springfield
leads to a huge dome being
placed over the town to cut it
off from the rest of the world.


Homer, being the chief cre-
ator of the ecological damage,
manages to escape from the
furious residents and, with
family in tow, tries to find
away to save his hometown.
However, plot has never
been the main attribute of The
Simpsons. Instead, it's the dis-
armingly subversive humour
which brought the show such
phenomenal success.
But while there is a reason-
able amount of laughs here -
there's just not as many as
we've been spoiled with in the
show's 17 years on the air.
And, as well as Bart, Lisa,
Maggie and Marge, all the usu-
al suspects make an appear-
ance but, again, they don't
hold as much screen time as
we've come to expect.
In fact, despite being only
87 minutes long, there are
more than a few dips in the
momentum making the whole
thing a frustratingly uneven
experience.
It's still worth seeing for a
some nice key moments, but
with so many great episodes
on the small screen to com-
pare it to, perhaps the tempta-
tion to make that leap to the
cinema should have been
resisted.
JASON DONALD


GB Power Company employees train


ABOUT 60 employees and
contractors of the Grand
Bahama Power Company com-
pleted a two-day seminar
focused on managing safety
issues through the development
of in-house training and safety
compliance programmes.
The company said in a state-
ment that the Electric Utility
Safety Training Seminar was
delivered in two eight-hour ses-
sions and covered information
that will greatly benefit not only
the power company employees.
but also those contractors who
are hired to assist them.
The training session entailed


studies on electrical accidents
and high voltage dangers. The
course also dealt with electrical
injuries, their prevention and
emergency care.
The importance of keeping
electrical conductors properly
covered was also mentioned as
an element of establishing safe
working conditions.
In addition, the course dealt
with electric shock or fire, how
to limit voltage in response to
lightning, line surges or unin-
tentional contact with higher
voltage lines, and how persons
should be encouraged to prop-
erly ground their homes.


"The seminar was a significant
step and a proactive approach
to ensure the safety of our
employees," said Chantel Nes-
bitt, environmental health and
safety co-ordinator at the Grand
Bahama Power Company.
Pam Tompkins, president of
SET Solutions in South Caroli-
na is a certified safety profes-
sional, a certified utility safety
administrator and an authorised
OSHA Training Institute (OTI)
instructor with over 25 years of
electricity utility safety experi-
ence.
She has been instrumental in
assisting electric utility compa-


* PAM Tompkins making a presentation to Grand Bahama Power Company staff


nies throughout the United
States tackle safety procedures,
the company said.
"It was her level of knowl-
edge in safety and training con-
sulting in electric utilities that
made the Grand Bahama Pow-
er Company want to invite her
to our island," said Mr Nesbitt.

Protection

During the sessions, Ms
Tompkins stressed the need for
minimum approach distances
(working space) around equip-
ment and restrictions on access
to,electrical equipmqt, .....
The employee_ learned,that.
they must ,..a la) s Weir:;thir
protective ge'ir and use insiulat-


ed tools.
Carlton Bosfield, environ-
mental, safety and security
director, said: "The training is
focused around the National
Fire Protection Association
(NFPA) Standard 70E which is
the standard for electrical safe-
ty in the workplace.
This standard is relatively
new and covers the most cur-
rent guidelines for safe electrical
work."
Mr Bosfield added that he
feels the training session was
timely for the Grand Bahama
Power Company and its
employees because there is now
.a far greater .emphasis on
employee safety- when working
" around electricity than there has
been in the past 25 years.

"We would obviously create
roads and infrastructure to get
people not only to enjoy the
wetland area, but also provide
an opportunity for Bahamians
to be able to access the southern
coast of New Providence," Mr
Carey said.
He said Bahamians would be
able to make use of the park
for recreational bone fishing if
the area had the proper infra-
structure.
BNT president Glenn Ban-
nister added that the national
parks could become "living
classrooms" for students


throughout the country
to learn about wetlandd
resources.
"It is very important for us
to protect our wetl ds and to
teach our children w to pro
tect them and how to become
good stewards of the environ-
ment," Mr Bannister said.
Director of parks :md science
for BNT Tamica Riiming said
that, due to the new infrastruc-
ture at Harrold and Wilson
Ponds, over 250 summer camp
students were able to visit the
park this year.
"This really stresses the
importance of us acquiring the
additional land around these


areas, particularly at Bonefish
Pond, so that we can have that
area accessible to the residents
of New Providence," Ms Rah-
ming said.
"Presently, there are 25
national parks and when you
look at the scope of the
Bahamas that is not nearly
enough, especially in the times
of development.
"We have submitted to the
government new park proposals
for Fowl Cays in the Abacos,
the San Salvador National Park,
as well as in New Providence
for the Perpall Tract area. In
New Providence there is little
green space," she added.

Mr Ferguson said his par-
ty's position was very clear on
this matter and that the names
were published to assist mem-
bers of the Pinewood commu-
nity to prove that they had the
right to vote in the election.
Mr Ferguson said the FNM


had not yet decided if it would
publish names of those who
allegedly voted impi,,perly in
Blue Hills and Maico City6
when they become available
"We would not necessarily
do that. It would be done to
assist the people, but w'

that yet," he said.

"Our surveillance team went
to Eleuthera on Sunday and
screened all those who would
have been in contact with the
particular patient to ensure that
they are treated appropriately,"
he said.
This team, Dr Minnis said,
was scheduled to go to Abaco
yesterday to perform the same
procedure to ensure the disease
is contained.
"We would have had several
(screening tests) that may have
been positive meaning that
they have been exposed but
not diseased," he said.
In these cases, the minister
said the medical team will mon-
itor and treat those who have
been exposed, but not yet dis-
eased, to ensure they do not
become ill.
According to ministry statis-
tics, a review of TB cases since

Limited, which comprise the balance sheet as at January 31, 2007 and 2006, and the statements of
income, changes in shareholders' equity and cash flows for the years then ended, and a summary of
significant accounting policies and other explanatory notes.

Management's Responsibility for the Financial Statements
Management is responsible for the preparation and fair presentation of these financial statements in
accordance with International Financial Reporting Standards This responsibility includes:
designing, implementing and maintaining internal controls relevant to the preparation and fair
presentation of financial statements that are free from material misstatement, whether due to fraud or
error, selecting and applying appropriate accounting policies, and making accounting estimates that
are reasonable in the circumstances.

Auditors' Responsibility
Our responsibility is to express an opinion on these financial statements based on our audits.We
conducted our audit in accordance with International Standard on Auditing.Those standards require
that we comply with ethical requirements and plan perform the audit to obtain reasonable assurance
whether the financial statements are free from material misstatements.


An audit involves performing procedures to obtain evidence about the amounts and disclosures in
the financial statements .The procedures selected depend on the auditors' judgment, including the
assessment of the risks of material misstatements of the financial statements, whether due to fraud or
error. In marking those risk assessments, the auditors consider internal controls relevant to the
entity's preparation and fair presentation of the financial statements in order to design audit
procedures that are appropriate in the circumstances, but not for the purpose of expressing an
opinion on the effectiveness of the entity's internal controls. An audit also includes evaluating the
appropriateness of accounting policies used and the reasonableness of accounting estimates made by
management, as well as evaluating the overall presentation of the financial statements.











We believe that the audit evidence we have obtained is sufficient and appropriate to provide a
basis for our audit opinion.


Opinion
In our opinion, the accompanying financial statements present fairly, in all material respects,
the financial position of Security & General Insurance Company Limited as of January 31,
2007 and 2006 and its financial performance and its cash flows for the years then ended, in
accordance with International Financial Reporting Standards.

2.5 Reinsurance
The Company enters into reinsurance arrangements to provide greater diversification of business
and limit the Company's exposure to losses arising from large individual risks. A large portion of
the reinsurance is effected under contracts known as treaties and in some instances by negotiation
on individual (facultative) risks. In addition to the above, the Company enters into excess of loss
and catastrophe contracts which protect against losses over stipulated amounts arising from any one
occurrence or event. Reinsurance contracts do not relieve the Company of its obligation to the
policyholders.

premiums represent the portion of premiums written applicable to the unexpired terms of policies

to premiums ceded to reinsurers.
iii) Reserves for Outstanding Losses

Outstanding claims comprise the Company's net share of estimated cost of all claims incurred but
not settled as at the balance sheet date, whether reported or not.

Outstanding claims are based on estimates and while management believes that the ainounts are
adequate, the ultimate liability may be in excess of or less than the amounts provided.
The provision for claims incurred but not reported is estimated by the Company's management
based on the gross written premiums for the period and the historical performance for each class of
business.

IS. FINANCIAL RISK MANAGEMENT
The Company's activities expose it to a variety of risks and those activities involve the analysis, evaluation, acceptance and
management of some degree of risk or combination of risks. Taking risk is core to the insurance business, and the operational
risks are an inevitable consequence of being in business.The Company's aim is therefore to achieve an appropriate balance
between risk and return and minimize potential adverse effects on the Company's financial performance.

The Company's risk management policies are designed to identify and analyze these risks, to set appropriate risk limits and
controls, and to monitor the risks and adherence to limits by means of reliable and up-to-date information systems. The
Company regularly reviews its risk management policies and systems to reflect changes in markets, products and emerging
best practices.
Risk management is carried out by the management under policies approved by the Board of Directors.Thc board provides
written policies for overall risk management as well as written policies covering specific areas such as insurance risk, market
risk, credit risk, interest rate risk and other financial instrument.
The most important types of risks are insurance risk, market risk, credit risk, liquidity risk and other operational risk. Market
risk includes currency risk and interest rate risk.
Insurance risk
The Company takes on exposure to insurance risk, which is the risk under the insurance contracts that the insured event
occurs and the amount of the resulting claim is uncertain. In the normal course of business, the company seeks to limit its
exposure to losses that may rise from any single occurrence. Reinsurance is primarily placed using a combination of
proportional, facultative and excess of loss treaties. However, obtaining reinsurance does not relieve the Company of its
primary obligation to the policy holders, therefore the Company is exposed to the risk that the reinsurers nmay be unable to
fulfil their obligations under the contracts.The Company seeks to mitigate this risk by placing its reinsurance coverage with
reputable companies and syndicates.
Market risk
The Company takes on exposure to market risk, which is the risk that the fair value or future'cash flows of a financial
instrument will fluctuate because of changes in market prices. Market risks arise from open positions in interest rate, currency
and equity products, all of which are exposed to general and specific market movements and changes in the level of volatility
of market rates or prices such as interest rates credit spreads foreign exchange rates and equity prices.The Company's
exposure to market risk is from its financial investment portfolios.
Credit risk
The Company takes on exposure to credit risk, which is the risk that a counterpart will cause a financial loss for the
Company by failing to discharge an obligation. The Company's exposure to credit risk includes the majority of asscs.To
mitigate this risk, the Company places cash with well known high quality financial institutions, monitors the payment of its
agents continuing to do business with them, places reinsurance coverage as noted in above insurance risk note and invests in
debt securities of good credit rating financial institutions.
Liquidity risk
The Company takes on exposure on liquidity risk, which is the risk that the Company is unable to meet its payment
obligations associated with its financial liabilities when they fall due and to replace funds when they are withdrawn. The
Company maintains a level of liquid assets, which mature or could be sold immediately to meet cash requirements for normal
operating purposes.

The bidding:
North East South West
I V Pass 2 + Pass

Opening lead five of hearts.
The opening lead frequently
points the way to declarer's best line
of play. Presumably the opening
leader is attacking in a way he deems
best, but in so doing he reveals at
least to some extent the nature of
his hand.
For example, although South can-
not see West's cards, he can reason-
ably assume that the heart lead is a"
singleton. It is simply not plausible


for West to lead a heart, after North
bid the suit twice, unless it is a sin-
gleton. West would be far more
likely to lead the unbid suit, spades.
South therefore plans his play of
six clubs on the basis that the lead is
a singleton. After winning the heart
with the ace, he does not make the
mistake of leading a low club to the
queen or a high club from his hand.
If he makes either of those plays, he
goes down one when East takes the
ace of clubs and returns a heart.
Whatever South does, West sooner
or later scores a trump trick.
Instead, South crosses to dummy
with a spade at trick two and returns
a low trump. East takes the ace, and
from then on the slam is ice-cold. If
East returns a heart, South ruffs high,
draws trumps and has the rest of the
tricks.
With this trump combination, it
would ordinarily make no difference
whether declarer's first trump lead
came from his hand or from dummy.
But in the actual deal, once he has
been warned by the lead that West's
five of hearts is a singleton, declarer
should institute measures to deal
with that possibility. If he plays a
trump from his-hand at trick two, he
may later have a tough time convince.

SATURDAY,
AUGUST 4


ARIES March 21/April 20
The past few weeks may have been
difficult, but by Wednesday, things
will start looking up. Now's the time
to start making plans for the future.
TAURUS April 21/May 21
No matter how enterprising and
energetic you may be, Taurus, it's
about time you realize that you can't
do everything alone. Friends will be
happy to help you this week.
GEMINI May 22/June 21
You've been working really hard
lately, Gemini. You've only to hang
in there a little while longer by
Friday, you'll be able to kick back
and relax with friends. In the mean-
time, try to get some rest.
CANCER June 22/July 22
You're going to feel pulled in two dif-
ferent directions this week, Cancer,
and you'll have to find a way to sat-
isfy both sides. Choosing only one
side will lead to all sorts of confusion.
LEO July 23/August 23
This week, you'll be able to see
through the irrelevant nonsense and
glimpse what's truly important. A
former flame stops by to say hello
later in the week.
VIRGO Aug 24/Sept 22
This week, avoid the negative emo-
tion of regret. Everything in life is a
learning experience. Realizing this
will make it easier to forgive yourself.
LIBRA Sept 23/Oct 23
This week, spend some time think-
ing about the direction your life
appears to be taking. Make time
for a family friend who needs your
advice. It will be appreciated.
SCORPIO Oct 24/Nov 22
Your desire to get ahead in the
world will be ignited this week,
but if you are sensible, you won't
rush into anything new. Think
ahead, but don't do anything yet.
Timing is everything.
SAGITTARIUS Nov 23/Dec 21
You are coming to the end of a brief
but worrying period when your confi-
dence took a bit of a dive. However,
it returns this week and just in
time to tackle challenges at work.
CAPRICORN Dec 22/Jan 20
If you need help this week, let others
know. Don't expect others to guess
that you are in trouble because even
though the signs may be obvious,
there is no guarantee they will notice.
AQUARIUS Jan 21/Feb 18
Your powers of persuasion will come
in handy this week. Your mastery of
facts, along with your convincing way
with words, can win anyone over.
PISCES Feb 19/March 20
It is time you started thinking less
about the good things in life and
more about your health. You've
been taking your physical well-
being for granted.

Parimarjan Negi v Kateryna
Lahno, sixth match game, Delhi
2006. Negi, just 14, is the
world's youngest grandmaster
while Lahno, 17, is women's
champion of Europe. So an
Indian sponsor signed them up
for an 18-game series, six at
classical time limits, six at 30-
minute rapid, and six at five-
minute blitz. On home ground,
Negi was the heavy favourite for
the most serious classical
section, but Lahno confounded
the odds by defeating the
prodigy 1-0 with five draws.
Negi had a wonderful chance to
level the scores in the final
round, but blew it as White (to
play) in today's diagram where
he is threatened with Ng3 mate
(Black's a7 bishop controls gl)


a b c d e f g h
He chose 1 Rgl?! which looks a
misprint but led to a draw after
Bxgl 2 Be6 Ng3+ 3 Kxgl Ne2+.
White's ingenuity was misplaced.
He has a forced checkmate in the
diagram. It takes several turns, but
every white move is a check. Can
you find the mate?
LEONARD BARDEN


Chess solution 8327:1 Ngb+ Kg7 2 fb+! Kxf6 3 Rfl*
and if Kg5 4 Rd5 mate or Kg7 4 Be8+! Kg8 5 RIB8 mate.
Interposing Black's bishop or knight at f2/f4 only
delays the mate.
