Tribune Staff Reporter
PLP OFFICIALS criticised
the policies of the government
as "ruinous" and accused the
FNM of selling lies to the
Bahamian public. Members of
the opposition also refuted
reports from the FNM that pub-
lic workers being laid off were
not properly employed by the
former administration and
therefore not established civil
These statements were made
yesterday at a press conference
held at the office of the Leader
of the Opposition on Parlia-
ment Street in reaction to the
reports that a number of public
workers hired by the former
administration will be out of a

job at the end of September and
to refute statements made by
president of the Bahamas Pub-
lic Services Union (BPSU),
John Pinder, that those persons
hired were not done under
proper protocol.
According to former Educa-
tion Minister Alfred Sears, after
a three year hiring freeze was
lifted in 2005, the Ministry of
Education performed a "needs
assessment" that revealed
"severe shortages of support
staff" throughout various sec-
tions of the ministry. Under
protocol, after an analysis of
this needs assessment by the
Department of Education, a
recommendation was sent to
the Permanent Secretary "seek-

Tribune Staff Reporter
THE YEARS of waiting may soon be over for many foreign
nationals hoping to obtain legal status as their applications are
expected to be ready for review by the end of September.
Minister of National Security and Immigration Tommy Turn-
quest told The Tribune yesterday that all applications for permanent
residency or citizenship by persons who participated in the recent
immigration audit are expected to be ready for approval or denial
by the end of the month.
Mr Turquest explained that his ministry is now in the process of
putting together a special task force which will ensure that the
information on all the applications is complete.

TRAFFIC came to a
halt on Shirley Street yes-
terday when a man'was
stabbed multiple times
about the body and left on
the sidewalk near The Tri-
bune, bleeding and strug-
gling to survive.
The incident occurred
around 1.30pm, and eye-
witnesses told The Tribune
that the injured man and
his attacker began their
argument in front of the
liquor store west of the
100 JAMZ building.
"I was by the hospital
and all of a sudden I saw
these two guys throwing
rocks at each other," the
witness said.
The injured man, who
appeared to be a vagrant,
reportedly hit the other
man in the face with a
stone. However, accord-
ing to the witness, the vic-
tim "ran out of rocks and
the other fella just stabbed
him up."
The victim, who
appeared to be in his 30s
or 40s, was stabbed in his
wrist, legs and all over the
body by what was
described as a pocket
knife about four inches
Police were on the
scene moments after the

TV star brushes off legal threats

from Stern and Birkhead

Cosby, whose new book about
Anna Nicole Smith has caused a
media storm, last night brushed
off threats of legal action by
Howard K Stern and Larry
"The truth needs to come
out," she told The Tribune,
"These guys spend their lives
trying to sue people they
would sue a newspaper boy if
they could."
Ms Cosby's book, Blonde
Ambition: The Untold Story
Behind Anna Nicole Smith's
Death, was yesterday selling fast
at New York bookstores. Some
had queues outside when they
opened for business.
The book claims to reveal
new information about the

I '

deaths of Anna Nicole and her
son Daniel and to throw new
light on the relationship
between Stern and Birkhead.
Ms Cosby said both men
were "in the business of dis-
tracting attention instead of fac-
ing the facts" and accused them
of trying to prevent the truth
from being told.
"We stand by our book and
make no apologies," she said,
"We stand by our sources and
all the facts in the book. Their
actions come as no surprise."

who were engaged in a head-
to-head paternity battle over

CHILDREN REACH out to touch the tail of a beached whale Wednesday March 15, 2000 on the coast of High
Rock in East Grand Bahama, Bahamas. Eight beached whales died the same day the US Navy began testing

Judge allows sonar

tests off California

Tribune Staff Reporter
A US court of appeal has
ruled that the US government
can continue testing sonar off
the coast of California, revers-
ing a ruling by another judge at
the beginning of August who
was swayed by environmental-
ists' arguments.
The sonar in dispute is of the
same kind that is carried out by
the US Naval facility AUTEC
in the deep waters of the
Tongue of the Ocean just off
Andros, which has been the
subject of criticism from
Bahamian and international
Those environmentalists say
that facility's testing actrit ies
are responsible for whale and
dolphin strandings which some-
times result in fatalities.
Scientific evidence, however,
is inconclusive.
In the now-overruled judg-
ment on the matter, a California
justice issued an injunction bar-
ring the US government from
carrying out the testing, which

* Judge overrules environmental concerns
* Equipment same as that used at AUTEC

involves the use of mid-fre-
quency active sonar.
That ruling was a victory for
the Natural Resources Defence
Council and other groups,
which contended that the US
Navy failed to do sufficient
environmental analysis of the
effects of the sonar on marine
Government representatives
argued in response that the test-
ing is critical to US national
security, allowing the training
of navy personnel in detecting
quiet submarines.
However, in the first ruling.
the environmentalists won-out.
While noting that the issues
on both sides are "tremendous-
ly important," the original judge
found there is a "near certainty"
the sonar tests will cause
irreparable harm to the envi-
ronment without effective miti-
gation and decided to put a slop
to them.

In this latest ruling by the 9th
US Circuit Court of Appeals,
Judge Andrew Kleinfeld said:
"The public does indeed have a
very considerable interest in
preserving our natural environ-
ment and especially relatively
scarce whales. But it also has
an interest in national defence.
We are currently engaged in
war in two countries."

state-owned oil compa-

reported to have halted
the sales process that
would have seen it sell
the Grand Bahama-
based Bahamas Oil
Refining Company
International (BOR-
CO), as revealed exclu-
sively by Tribune Busi-
ness more than a week
The oil tiade press
reported that PDVSA
had halted the BORCO
sales process, although
the reasons for doing so
were unclear, leaving a
cloud of uncertainty
hanging over the
Freeport oil storage and
break bulk facility.
Among the BORCO
bidders was Morgan
Stanley, the 'blue chip
Wall Street investment
bank, and other top
financial institutions
and oil companies, and
by pulling the facility
off the market now,
PDVSA risks damaging
its reputation in the
global oil and financial
PDVSA had appoint-
ed Citigroup's invest-

run the open, transpar-
ent 'beauty contest'
process for BORCO's
sale, and all bidders will
have now spent several
million dollars on con-
ducting due diligence,
lawyers and accoun-
tants' fees and such
Any decision by
PDVSA to withdraw
BORCO from sale
would not sit well with
such institutions, given
the financial costs they
will be left to pick up.

Civil service is not a social service

AS FAR BACK as the Pindling era a PLP
cabinet minister of that day advocated prun-
ing the civil service.
Former PLP attorney general Sean
McWeeney told Bahamians then that the civil
service was not only bloated, but was weighed
down by too many dead branches. Fhe country
was investing too much into a generally unpro-
ductive service. He recommended action. And
that action meant improving and streamlining
the service. In other words, the dead wood had
to go. Although what Mr McWeeney said made
sense, his colleagues backed off.
Naturally, nothing was done. The service
was a convenient employment agency for MPs'
constituents, many of whom were uneiploy-
able. We only have to think of the open hiring
policy of former PLP Governor's Harbour MP
Philip Bethel who, while chairman of Bai,,iia-
sair. cluttered the cash-strapped airline. with
many of his unskilled constituents, because.
according to his own admission, Bahamasair
was "almost a social service."
"They have a nickname for me, 'Bro.'" he
told the House. "They say 'Bro, aint nothing you
could do for Sally? Aint nothing you could do
for Harry?' You know how it is..."
Yes, we all know how it is, and how it was.
Bahamian taxpayers were expected to support
big-hearted Bro's social service to ensure the
PLP's victory at the polls.
A-+- Althoughi PorHitWM'V .'Fred Mitchell says
today that government's;hurried hiring of so.
many Bahamians just before the 2007 election'
had nothing-to di with that election'..statemenl
made by him on May 14 suggests that this hiring
had indeed everything to do with an election vic-
"A moratorium (on hiring in the public ser-
vice)," he said, "was put in place by Mr Ingra-
ham when he left the government the last time.
The PLP foolishly followed that policy and end-
ed up out of government with the number one
complaint from the electorate being lack of
jobs, not crime or immigration as it was in the
summer of 2006."
Mr Mitchell's policy to allow unqualified
Bahamians into the public service entrenches
"Bro" Bethel's idea of turning the civil service
into a "social service" at the expense of hard
working Bahamians.
Bahamians constantly complain about the
indifference, insolence, indolence and lack of
service they receive from many civil servants.
One would think that an efficient government
with the interest of all its citizens and the good
of the nation at heart would seek to raise the
* service to the highest standards rather than
water it down to the lowest denominator.

responds that resulted in the proximity between
the new hires in the public service and the date
of the general elections "
If this is true. then it is the best argument for
the civil service to he revamped and supplied

Bahamas in two magazine


Tribune Staff Reporter
THE Bahamas has been fea-
tured in two top travel maga-
zine surveys this week and
made a new entry into one's
"most popular destinations" list.
This country's new placing in
the survey of favoured island
destinations in US-based Cond6
Nast Traveler magazine could
be seen as a promising sign after
numerous discouraging reports
about the nation's declining pop-
ularity to the world's tourists.
The Bahamas appeared in the
magazine's "Favourite Islands"
category, ranking 19th out of
20 as a "new entrant." Howev-
er, some may note it is a low
ranking in a quite specific cate-
The magazine's 10th annual
survey of the world's most pop-
ular tourist destinations covers
five categories 'Favourite
Overseas Cities', 'Favourite
Countries', 'Favourite Islands',
'Favourite Airports' and
'Favourite Long-haul Airlines'.
According to the magazine,
it took the opinions of 30,000
readers into consideration.
A Ministry of Tourism
spokesman said: "The efforts of

- but ranking low

diligent Bahamian residents
have caused the Bahamas to
hold a spot on the Cond6 Nast
Traveler list, which ranks the
Bahamas among the world's
favourite islands this year."
Alongside the Bahamas in
Cond6 Nast Traveller's 20
favourite islands are four other
Caribbean destinations. Barba-
dos ranked highest in the
Caribbean region at 5th place,
St Lucia 9th, Cuba 13th and St
Barts 18th.
Top placed in this section
were the Maldives, the Greek
Islands and the Balearic Islands


Meanwhile, Travel + Leisure
magazine listed two of the coun-
try's hotels in its "World's Best
Awards 2007" survey, in the Top
25 Caribbean Hotels section.
The publication ranked the
One and Only Ocean Club at
19 out of 25 in a survey of the
Caribbean region's best hotels,
while the Pink Sands resort in
Harbour Island rounded out the
survey at 25.
Yesterday Jeff Humes, new
general manager at Pink Sands,
said he was "thrilled" to hear

of the hotel's success.
However, the only two hotels
in the Bahamas to feature in
the ranking both dropped in
popularity from last year, when
they placed 8th and 18th respec-
Alongside the Bahamas in
Travel + Leisure's Top 25 hotels
ranking were hotels in Jamaica
- the most popular Caribbean
destination, according to the
survey, with 5 resorts placed the
Top 25 Anguilla, Barbados,
Turks and Caicos and St Barts.
In its survey of top 100 hotels
worldwide, the Bahamas was
nowhere to be seen.
Other hotels in the Caribbean
which made the grade are the
Jumby Bay resort in Antigua at
14, the Jamaica Inn in Ochos
Rios, Jamaica, at 49, the Mail-
louhana Hotel and Spa in
Anguilla, at 69, and H6tel Saint-
Barth Isle de France in St.
Bart's, at 73.
The Ministry of Tourism yes-
terday said that the surveys
"demonstrate the fiercely com-
petitive nature of modern day
"The lesson... is that every
Bahamian resident is needed to
contribute to giving the
Bahamas a competitive edge in
tourism," said the ministry.

The ministry urges all
Bahamians to "work to main-
tain and enhance a clean, com-

fortable, and safe environment
in which we are all proud to live
and welcome guests".

Tribune Freeport Reporter
FREEPORT A prominent
Grand Bahama resident is
speaking out against the neglect
and poor maintenance at the
Grand Bahama Memorial Park.
Attorney Fred Smith said the
condition of the cemetery in
Freeport is not suitable as a
resting place for loved ones who
have passed on.
"There is no dignity in death
here in Freeport," he said. "The
grave yard is an absolute dis-
grace I would not bury my
dog in that graveyard."
The memorial park is being
managed by a committee of vol-
unteers appointed by the Grand
Bahama Port Authority. It has
responsibility for maintenance
and upkeep of the grave yard
on Frobisher Drive.
While at the grave site on
Tuesday, Mr Smith said he was
appalled by its state.
Deep open graves could be
seen, some filled with rubbish;
the landscaping is overgrown
and garbage bins are left out in
plain sight.
"When you go there and
watch funerals take place, peo-
ple are stumbling over rocks
and some are nearly falling into
holes and open graves. It is an
unattractive place there are
no trees, and all you see is bro-
ken up limestone everywhere.
There is no space left to bury
people there," he said.
Mr Smith said that the Port
Authority has refused to grant
licenses to persons, including
himself, who wish to operate
graveyard facilities in Freeport.
"What is happening at the
grave yard is just the tip of the
iceberg of how the rest of
Freeport's infrastructure main-
tenance and management has

collapsed," he added.
According to Mr Smith, the
Port Authority has responsibil-
ities and obligations under the
Hawksbill Creek Agreement
that relate to the maintenance
and management of Freeport.
He said this includes "finding a
decent place to bury bodies."
"Are they going to be pre-
pared to have their loved ones
buried there?" Why is it that
Mr Edward St George is buried
out at Taino Beach? Why is he
not buried where everybody
else has to be buried in
Freeport?" Mr Smith asked.
"Is Sir Jack prepared to bury
himself and his family there?
Rick Hayward, who is a
Bahamian citizen, is he going

to bury himself at the Grand
Bahama Memorial Park?"
"I have nowhere else to go
and I have made Freeport my
home for the last 30 years.
When I die and my children die,
I want me and other people, and
my children and family to have a
decent place to be buried."
Mr Smith believes the com-
mittee that manages the ceme-
tery should not be blamed.
"I do not expect the Port to
be pointing fingers or blaming
anybody in that committee. It
takes money, it takes focus, it
takes attention, and the PA has
failed miserably in its responsi-
bilities and duties to the peo-
ple of Freeport in managing a
decent burial site."

accused of
public funds
Santo Domingo
'AN opposition party has
accused President Leonel Fer-
nandez of misusing public funds
and inappropriately creating
new government positions to
improve his chances of winning
re-election next year, according
to Associated Press.
The Dominican Revolution-
ary Party filed the complaint
Monday with the Organization
of American States, party
spokesman Andres Matos said.
The complaint alleges Fer-
nandez misused $30,000 in gov-
ernment publicity by attaching
his campaign slogan to official
advertisements and appointed
opposition members to govern-
ment posts to win their support.
A Fernandez spokeswoman
declined to comment.
The party asked the OAS to
open an investigation. The
Washington-based organisation
declined to confirm receipt of
the complaint and said it would

case if it chooses to issue a
Fernandez, of the center-right
Dominican Liberation Party, is
in his second, nonconsecutive
term. If he wins elections sched-
uled for May 16, he would be
the first president to succeed
himself since the late Joaquin
Balaguer, who held power for
22 years until 1996.

NINE Latin American
nations with UN peacekeepers

to say when they would remove
their troops, according to Asso-
ciated Press.
The UN Security Council is
expected to renew the mandate
of the 8,800-strong, Brazilian-

On Tuesday, defence minis-

DIVPERS witli many \ears
experience of Balhaminal wai tels
claim the pred;ioci lionfish is
showing up in greater numbers
around Nassaut than cvcr
Over the weekend, seven or
eight were spotted off Salt Cay,
adding to several recent sight-
ings in the Cable Beach area,
where some have been seen in
only four or five feet of water.
Yesterday, bathers were
warned to steer clear of the
colourful creatures, which have
long spines which can inflict
intense pain.
But the real danger from lion-
fish is to the country's marine
resources, as the species is
known to eat smaller fish, baby
fish and fish eggs.
And because it has no natur-
al predators in the area, experts
fear the numbers could grow to
the point where fisheries sup-
plies are threatened.
"At one time, you would
rarely see lionfish locall\" said
one diver, "but they are now
becoming quite comn1oin.
.Ca.llegc of tlh -i lhamas st u
dent Marcy Tuckci revealed
recently that he had speared
dozens of lionfish around Nas-
sau. especially in the Ave's's
Beach, Cable Beach and Saun-
ders Beach areas.
He warned of accidental( ccn
tact w\itih thecm, adding: "'These
fish aren't frightened fish. I Isu-
ally a stingray will move when
you approach, but the lionlish
will allow you to gel pretty close
without moving away."
Another diver. Bruce Purdy.
who suffered a bad sting trom
one, described adult lionfish as
"arrogant", standing their
ground in a confrontation.
The Departmemn of Marine
Resources has posted warnings
around the Bahamas, telling
bathers to steer clear of them.
Yesterday. director of the
department Michael Braynen

IMr BraVnen. ..


iHe said that the minister\ has
been receiving reports from
divers as well as from the Col-
lege of the bahamas, \\heie
someone is collecting data on
the fish.
Nitr Brayncin said that the
department will soon announce
the launch of a website w\lielr
members of the public can visit
to get information about the fish
and report sightings.
Those who do not have
access to the internet can con-
tinue to report the fish to the
department directly, he noted.
The reports of more lionfish
around Nassau come on the
heels of similar reports in the
northern Bahamas.
While lionfish are not known

to attack humans, they use their
spines as defensive weapons
which can cause intense throb-
bing pain that can last for sev-
eral hours.

deaths have ever been attrib-

and have often been seen along

been caused by specimens being

much information that will help me towards my new job title."

material in the course was good and I would definitely refer anyone
asking about computer training to Synergy Bahamas."

ing permission to engage the
persons needed."
Mr Sears added that due to
the "urgent need" for the sup-
port staff the Ministry of Edu-
cation hired persons "by way
of delegated authority and on
temporary month-to-month
basis on lhe advice of the Min-
istry of Public Service." The
practice of hiring persons by
way of delegated authority on
a montlh-lo nionth basis has
behen a consistent practice since
199h and allows the paperwork
to "catch up" with the Public
Service Commission. Mr Sears
This was mean to be a 12-
month probationary period,
allowing employees the oppor-

tunity for "permanent employ-
ment being subject only to
Completing a 12-month proba-
tionary period satisfactorily,"
he added.
While many have dubbed
these new hires as an election
gimmick by the former admin-
istration, the PLP is quick to
refute this allegation. It is in
the slow pace in which the
public service responds that
resulted in the proximity
between the new hires in the
public service and the date of
the general elections, members
of the opposition said.
"This is what angers me,
because there are persons who
are seeking to relate this
employment to the general
elections, when really they
know full well that had nothing
to do with it at all," former

Health Minister Dr Bernard
Nottage argued yesterday,
adding that many of the new
hires had "letters of appoint-
ment" from the permanent
secretary, indicating they were
hired under protocol.
PLP MP for Fox Hill, Fred
Mitchell, slammed the press
statement issued by the Cabi
net office yesterday in
response to the headline of
Tuesday's edition of The Tri-
bune which read "Civil ser-
vants 'to be laid off'."
"Their statement says that
no established civil servant is
being laid off. What they're
not denying is they are in fact
laying off people, and that is
the point that we are seeking
to make. They are laying off
people in circumstances where
the government needs people
to work and they are laying
them off for reasons other than
for genuine cause," Mr
Mitchell said yesterday. He
added that the PLP is consid-
ering challenging some of
these dismissals in court.
"We have to show the
(Bahamian) people that we are
not afraid and that we are
going to stand up for them as
much as we can," he said. Mr
Mitchell also accused the FNM
of "slowing down" the
Bahamian economy and
removing $90 million from the
"You say you are cleaning
up the government and you
are bringing order to the pub-
lic service, and you are also
boasting that you are going to
balance the budget. What you
are in fact doing is balancing
the budget on the backs of
poor people." he continued. "'

Status applications

expected to be

ready for review

by end of month

FROM page one

"We expect to have them
(the applications) to the
point where we can present
them to the immigration
board," he said.
With the information
complete on all the appli-
cations, Mr Turnquest said,
the board can review a
request for legal status and
immediately decide to
grant or deny it.
The immigration audit
was held in New Provi-
dence, Grand Bahama and
Abaco on August 29 and
31 respectively.
The initiative sought to
assist those individuals
who submitted applications
for permanent residence or
citizenship to the Depart-
ment of Immigration prior
to April 30, 2007.
"This exercise is not a
registration programme. It
is not an offer of amnesty
for illegal immigrants. It is
not a repatriation pro-
gramme for illegal immi'
grants to be either volun-
tarily or forcibly repatriat-
ed," government explained
in a statement.
The audit was especially
praised by Haitian commu-
nity leaders.
Haitian lawyer and social
commentator Elizier Reg-
nier told The Tribune in an
earlier interview that such
an exercise should have
been conducted a long time
Mr Regnier said that
over the years many files
for applications seem to
have been lost or mis-
If government is in fact
now taking corrective mea-
sures now, he said, "that is
in itself commendable."
Mr Regnier said that
those who are entitled to
apply for citizenship
should be regularised on a
yearly basis as not to cre-
ate a backlog in applica-


Utility problems

cause uproar on

Harbour Island

A well established pharmacy located in Nassau is presently considering
applications for the following position:

Pharmacy Technician/Pharmacy Assistant

All interested persons are asked to call 380-8220 for further information.

RESIDENTS of Harbour
Island are calling for urgent
government action to rectify
water and power problems
which, they say, are ruining
their lives.
"It's hell out here," a resident
told The Tribune, "The infra-
structure is ancient it's falling
Discontent is mounting not
only because of constant elec-
tricity and water problems, but
also approval for the controver-
sial Romora Bay marina resort
project, which critics say will
change the island's way of life.
"I'm planning to sell up and
go," one furious resident said. "1
don't have quality of life here
anymore. There is no peace."
Tension has been rising in
Harbour Island for some years
now because long-term resi-
dents feel development is out-
stripping the island's resources.
"We have no infrastructure,
no place to put the sewage, yet
the government is approving 50
condos and a 50-slip marina,"
said the source.
"Florida developers with no
interest in the island are being
allowed in here to do what they
want to do, sell up and leave.
It's been all downhill for the
last 10 years."
The FNM government has
come in for severe criticism
from residents who feel it has
done nothing to solve chronic
powercuts and sub-standard

water supplies.
Some utilities equipment was
so old and dilapidated that
pieces frequently fell off, it was
"Things are so bad that we
wonder if the central govern-
ment is being ill-advised by our
terrible local government," said
a source.
But area MP Alvin Smith
admitted that he shares the res-
ident's concerns about water
supply, electricity and a possible
utility crisis as a result of fur-
ther development.
"It is valid for them to be con-
cerned," he said. "BEC cannot
adequately meet the demand
for electricity in Eleuthera."
He added that in his opinion,
the telephone services in North

Eleuthera which he called
"the worst in the Bahamas"
must also be improved, along
with the roads.
,r Smith said that he has
been working to bring these
matters to resolution for some
time not just for Harbour
Island, but for the whole of
North Eleuthera.
He said he has already been
given assurances by the minister
of state for works and the chair-
man of the Water and Sewerage
Corporation that the issues will
be addressed.
According to the MP, while
the hold-up in electricity
upgrades is due to BEC's ongo-
ing deliberations on which of
two proposed strategies would
best tackle the problem, lie is
not sure why planned work on
the water system has not been
carried out.
Mr Smith explained that the
former PLP government signed
a number of contracts to replace
water mains across the North
Eleuthera constituency. "but
something went awry". He
assured residents that he is
working to get to the bottom of
the matter.
"1 am happy that there are
cot-cerned persons in the con-
stituency who collectively seek
some resolution to these prob-
lems," Mr Smith added. He
said the FNM urges Bahami-
ans "to express their views" on
all matters.

A group of 135 students from
20 schools on New Providence,
Grand Bahama and Andros
schools took part in an "adven-
turous" sailing expedition to
five Family Islands
They explored caves on
Great Harbour Cay, hiked to
the eastern end of North Bimi-
ni, kayaked in the Lucayan
National park, camped at the
historic Hole-in-the-wall light-
house at Sandy Point, Abaco,
and hunted crabs on Andros.
The eight-day expedition was
one of the requirements for the-
Governor-General's Youth
Award (GGYA), part of an
international network based on

the Duke of Edinburgh's Award.
The GGYA programme is
open for students aged 14 to 25
and involves participation in
community service, skills devel-
opment, physical recreation and
adventurous travelling.
This year's sailing expedition
allowed the young people to
experience life on a different
Family Island, develop leader-
ship skills. and live with people
other than their normal peers.
The students were accompanied
by 25 volunteer instructors and
three staffers.
GGYA executive director
Denise Mortimer said: "It's not
just about sightseeing. On Abaco,

for example. Gold participant
hiked 20 miles over two days. Si
ver groups hiked It miles and
Bronze participants did 10 miles.
They all camped at the lighthouse.
'On Andros the hike was
only three miles to the camp-
site. but Gold participants
undertook a coastal clean-up at
the regatta site."
Participants pay a portion of
the cost for the expedition (the
onl\ part of the programme they
have to pay for) The bulk of
expenses are met by donors, who
have included the Ministry of
Youth, Teekay Shipping, Cable
Ba,~amnas, Lyford Cay, Kerzner
and Royal Bank of Canada.

Daniel s death at Doctors Hos-
pital a year ago.
"My book has a lot of new
information on both cases and
1 am hoping the courts will
look at them again," she said.
"1 know there have been
many delays into the inquest,
with lawyers putting up road-
blocks, but I'm hoping my
book causes both cases to have
another review.'"
She added: "There are some
very interesting facts here and
a lot of people telling very dif-
ferent stories, but the truth
needs to come out wherever it
Ms Cosby's book was pub-
lished on Tuesday, when a
Today show interview with the
author was briskly cancelled
after Stern's lawyer sent "a
bristling, threatening letter" to
the producer.
Attorney Lin Wood "made
it clear he would sue the Today
show for any false facts that
spewed out of Rita's mouth,"
according to the TMZ gossip
Last week, OK! Magazine,
which had an exclusive deal
with Birkhead to cover Dan-
nielynn's first birthday party
tomorrow, severed ties with
him over the Cosby allegations.

ST Cecilia MP Cynthia
"Mother" Pratt held her annual
Back-to-School Jamboree on
Saturday, September 1, to pro-
vide much needed school sup-
plies for hundreds of school
children at the opening of the
new school year.
The Jamboree was held at
two different locations to
accommodate parents and chil-
dren throughout the con-
stituency. Distribution of sup-
plies were also conducted in
Garden Hills, Ridgeland Park
and the Grove. Hundreds of
children showed up to receive
the supplies for the opening of
school. There were also scores

of young men and boys waiting
patiently to get their hair cut by
two professional barbers who
were on site. Children and their
parents had an opportunity to
enjoy games and a free lunch.
"This Jamboree is something
that I look forward to every
year," said Mrs. Pratt, "This is
one way my hardworking team
and I get to demonstrate our
commitment to community liv-
ing in this great constituency of
St. Cecilia. The people of this
area have always been dear to
me. Supporting and giving to
them doesn't even require
thought, it's something that's
done instinctively. .
Mrs Pratt said she was the
first member of parliament to 7'

of this kind. "1 did so in 1997
with the help of Missionary
Horton in St. Cecilia," she said.
"The idea was to assist persons,
especially single mothers, to get
their children prepared for
school. We wanted to take some
of the financial pressure off
them. We also used the Jam-

China takes foreign

reporters on factory

tour to defend

battered image of

toy manufacturers


TOY inspectors set fire to
Elmo's bulging white eyes,
tugged on Dora the Explorer's
arms and scraped paint off a
Barbie play set tests they
called a routine part of efforts
to make sure Chinese products
are safe for American children,
according to Associated Press.
On the defensive after a
series of embarrassing recalls,
China's government invited for-
eign journalists to go on factory
visits Tuesday in hopes of
repairing the image of toy mak-
ers battered by global worries
about the "Made in China"
No facilities tainted by recalls
were visited, and executives
wouldn't talk about troubles at
competitors, but officials por-
trayed the sites on the one-day
trip as fair representations of
the high standards that China
insists are followed by most of
its export manufacturers.
The tour in southern Guang-
dong province China's
biggest toy-making region -
came after Mattel Inc. removed
18.2 million Chinese-made
items from store shelves. The
dolls, cars and action figures
were contaminated with lead
paint or equipped with small,
powerful magnets that could
damage a child's organs if swal-

The Consumer Product Safe-
ty Commission, in cooperation
with Mattel Inc., announced
late Tuesday that it is recalling
more than 700,000 Chinese-
made toys that have excessive
amounts of lead paint.
Mattel's third major recall of
Chinese-made toys because of
lead paint in a a month covers
675,000 units of various Barbie
accessory toys, 90,000 units of
Geo Trax Locomotive Toys and
8,900 Big Big World 6-in-1 Bon-
go Band toys.
Toys have not been China's
only problem products in recent
months. Toxic chemicals have
been found in exports ranging
from toothpaste to pet food
China's leadership has
acknowledged that some of its
manufacturers cut corners and
used substandard materials. But
officials contend the problem
involves only a relatively small
portion of its factories and is
unfairly sullying the reputation
of the entire business.
"China's toy-making industry
is actually very good. It is not
messed up like the Americans
say it is," said Zhong Dechang,
a top inspection official in
Guangdong, which accounted
for 70 percent of China's toy
exports last year.
Tuesday's tour took journal-
ists to two huge factories, a
small plant and a government
inspection center.
At the testing center part
of a network of 60 labs in
Guangdong workers in white
coats and surgical masks
scraped paint off plastic pieces
from boxes labeled "Barbie hot
tub party bus," a Mattel toy.
The paint flecks were collected
on white paper then sent to an
in-house laboratory for chemi-
cal analysis.
"Some factories ask us to do
these tests for them. With oth-
ers, we force them to let us test
their products," said Zhong,
who works in the provincial
capital, Guangzhou, in a tall
new building with gray marble
pillars in the front and two large
stone lions at the entrance.
The toymakers visited
declined to discuss how com-
mon it is for companies to
ignore safety standards.
"This I don't know because I
am busy with my own business,"
said Lin Zhongjian, general
manager of Ball Star Toys Co.
Ltd., a drab four-story factory

with about 100 workers making
balls for soccer, football and
Adam Segal, senior fellow for
China studies at the Council on
Foreign Relations, said rules set
by the central government on
monitoring product safety are
often ignored by local officials,
who are under more pressure
to promote economic growth
than to enforce such laws.
"The central government
can't inspect everything, and
local governments have an
incentive to promote as much
economic growth as possible,
no matter what the conse-
quences are. It's the main crite-
ria they're evaluated on," Segal
Christopher Devereux, a
British businessman based in
Guangzhou not involved with
the tour, said there are plenty of
dubious manufacturers in Chi-
na. But he also said many fac-
tories turn out quality products
at low prices.
Devereux, managing director
of ChinaSavvy, which helps for-
eign companies find Chinese
factories to make plastic parts,
hardware and other products,
said it was important for the
outside companies to monitor
and inspect their Chinese sup-
"I really don't have any sym-
pathy for Mattel," he said.
"There's no excuse to let so
much product go through with
lead in its paint. They should
be testing. It's not difficult.
There are hundreds of quality
control laboratories in China."
Telephone messages left at
Mattel's corporate offices in
California seeking comment
Tuesday were not immediately
The bigger Chinese factories
on the tour had their own test-
ing facilities.
At a sprawling plant in Dong-
guan, about an hour south of
Guangzhou, workers in a spot-
less laboratory inspected a vari-
ety of toys. One technician set
fire to the eyeball on an Elmo
doll and used a stopwatch to
time how long it burned.
Another pulled on the arm of a
Dora the Explorer doll to see
if it could hold up to rough play.
More than 5,000 people work
at the plant the Dong Guan
Da Lang Wealthwise Plastic
Factory, which makes 1 million

toys each week, director Patrick
Ma said.
"We believe the recalls are
isolated cases. It's not a serious
problem," Ma said, standing in
a showroom filled with Winnie
the Pooh, Sesame Street fig-
urines, and Hello Kitty and
Blue's Clues dolls. "We believe
it's a good sign for all manufac-
turers to think about it and
think twice."
Amid lush green banana
fields on the outskirts of
Guangzhou, one of the world's
biggest toymakers Jetta (Chi-
na) Industries, with 40,000
workers in six factories -
churns out Little Mermaids for
Disney, Spiderman figures for
Hasbro and rubber duck bath
toys for Fisher-Price.
On one huge shop floor, the
air was filled with the scent of
glue and fresh cardboard boxes
being packed with blue and
neon green "Planet Hero"
space shuttle toys for Fisher-

The plant has an inspection
center, where a worker in a sur-
gical mask sat at a computer
linked to chemical analysis
equipment testing paint. Anoth-
er woman's job was to stick a
plastic spoon in a baby doll's
mouth 10,000 times to test for
unsafe wear and tear.
Eddie Shum, senior manager
of Jetta's quality department,
said the company has a system
that prevents it from using con-
taminated paint. When paint
arrives from the.supplier, it's
quarantined until it can be test-
ed for lead by the plant's lab,
he said.
"If the paint is substandard,
we will send the whole lot back
to the vendor," he said.
At one toy factory that wasn't
on the tour, plant manager
Ming Tsung Lu echoed a belief
common among many manu-
facturers: The product recalls
have more to do with sloppy
management at Mattel than
with Chinese practices.
"We do our own product test-
ing here," said Lu, who works
for the Song Yih Group in
"You've got to do it, or else
you'll have big trouble, like
Mattel did."

A WORKER checks Spiderman dolls assembled at the production line of Dongguan Da Lang Wealth-
wise Plastic Factory in Dongguan, China Tuesday Sept. 4, 2007. Stung by global recalls, China opened
a toy-testing lab to foreign media Tuesday, showing off workers in white lab coats scraping paint off
plastic toys and twisting the legs and arms of action-figure dolls.

Bush backs Australia on APEC climate change

deal, says all polluters must be part of solution

* SYDNEY, Australia
PRESIDENT Bush urged
Pacific Rim nations Wednes-
day to band together on tack-
ling global warming, saying all
major polluters must be part
of any solution. But finding
consensus among Asian lead-
ers at their annual summit has
proven elusive, according to
Associated Press.
Bush backed an Australian
proposal that Asia-Pacific
countries endorse a new, inclu-
sive approach to the divisive
challenge of climate change -
one that unlike the current
Kyoto Protocol would require
firmer action by China and
other developing countries.
"For there to be an effective
climate change policy, China
needs to be at the table," Bush
said at a news conference with
Australian Prime Minister
John Howard. Bush and
Howard issued a joint state-
ment that supported nuclear
energy, new technologies and
lots of dialogue to find a way
forward on global warming.
The climate change issue is
at the top of the agenda for
Bush, Howard and the leaders
of 19 other Asia-Pacific
economies gathering for an
annual summit, held this year
in Sydney's Opera House, far
behind a security cordon police
set up to ward off trouble.
Bush's message wasn't new
- he made the same point at a
Group of Eight summit in
June. His latest statement
comes as momentum builds
toward striking a new interna-
tional framework on global
warming. Bush has invited 12
countries and the European

Manaoes over 12uarleries
Passion Fruit

Union to a climate change
meeting in Washington on
Sept. 27-28, and a larger, U.N.-
backed meeting is due to be
held on the issue in Indonesia
in December.
About 300 protesters, many
of them high school students
on a walkout to protest against
Bush, the Iraq war and
Howard's support for both,
staged an uneventful demon-
stration despite police threats
of arrests for truancy.
Finding consensus on cli-
mate change among a diverse
group that includes rich and
poor countries has bedeviled
senior officials from the Asia
Pacific Economic Cooperation
forum, who tried for a second
day Wednesday to draft a
statement the leaders would
APEC's developing coun-
tries, in particular, were trying
to squelch the inclusion of spe-
cific targets to reduce emis-
sions of the greenhouse gases
that cause global warming,
officials said.
Indonesia dislikes Australi-
a's call for emissions reduc-
tions because it wound under-
mine the U.N.-sponsored
Kyoto accord and an upcoming
successor conference in Bali,
said an Indonesian official
involved in the talks, who
requested anonymity because
he was not authorized to speak
to the media.
The divide between devel-
oped and developing countries
has troubled all climate change
talks. The 1997 Kyoto Protocol
sidestepped the problem by
exempting developing nations
from the emissions goals it set
for industrialized countries.

PRESIDENT BUSH and Australian Prime Minister John Howard
speak to reporters during a press conference in Sydney, Australia,
Wednesday, Sept. 5, 2007.

The exemption in part under-
mined the agreement, causing
the U.S. and Australia to reject
it as unfair.
Supporters of the Australian
proposal on climate change
said it was not meant to sup-
plant U.N. efforts to forge a
successor to Kyoto, which
expires in 2012, but to influ-
ence the discussion.
An APEC endorsement
could carry much weight since
the grouping includes the four
biggest emitters of greenhouse
gases the United States.
China, Russia and Japan.
"All emitters must partici-
pate" in a new agreement, said
Japanese Foreign Ministry
spokesman Mitsuo Sakaba,
whose government was back-
ing the Australian proposal.
"We should express political
will at least."
With Russia already agree-
ing to Kyoto caps, and Japan
and the United States in favor
of a new approach, pressure
was growing on China, whose
President Hu Jintao was set to
hold separate talks with
Howard and Bush on Thurs-

Opening lead queen of spades.
One of the secrets of good dummy
play is not to take the easy hands for
granted. When you are declarer in
what seems to be a safe contract, you
should always stop and ask yourself:
"Is there anything that might jeop-
ardize the contract, and, if so, what
can I do about it?"
This type of thinking often makes

the difference between success and
failure. A "worrier" in bridge has a
huge advantage over a player who
assumes everything will be divided
normally. All too often the non-
worrier neglects to protect against
the unexpected.
Take this case where South is in
six hearts and West leads a spade.
Declarer ruffs in dummy and sees 13
easy tricks consisting of five hearts,
six diamonds, the spade ruff and a
So he starts to draw trumps by
playing the A-K and discovers, to his
horror, that he can no longer make
the slam because the hearts are di-
vided 4-1. The best he can do now is
settle for down one.
But if South is a worrier, this
does not occur. He notes at trick one
that a 4-1 trump split poses a threat to
the contract, and starts to search for a
means of overcoming that division if
it exists.
This does not prove to be a diffi-
cult task. After ruffing the spade; he
leads a trump from dummy and
allows East's nine to hold the trick!
This .safety measure proves to be
effective against any return, and
South scores 12 easy tricks.
Sometimes it pays to worry.

Alexander Morozevich v Nigel
Short, Sarajevo 2007. Two
decades ago Short and London
grandmaster John Nunn
popularised the English Attack,
a direct and formidable system
arising from 1 e4 c5. Earlier still,
Britain's first grandmaster Tony
Miles was successful with the
English Defence, initiated by the
opening moves 1 e4 a6 2 d4 b5.
So it was quite natural that
Short, casting around this spring
for a way to broaden his
repertoire, should experiment
with the move 1 c4, long known
as the English Opening. After a
couple of successes in minor
events, the former title
challenger boldly decided to use
his new weapon against world
number four Morozevich in the
first round at Sarajevo. Alas, the
interesting experiment
boomeranged as the Russian
gained control of key central
squares with his knights. Moro

Bays $25m boos
.~ I'

for Bahamian companies.,

* Great Guana Cay developer spending 'an average of $7-$8m' per month

on project, and says 90 per cent of that spend impacting Bahamians

Tribune Business Editor

firms and individuals
have benefited eco-
nomicallv since 2005
from the Baker's Bay Golf &
Ocean Club development on
Great Guana Cay, project
executives yesterday telling
The Tribune that they had paid
$25 million worth of invoices to
those entities and made "a
pretty significant" impact on
the economy.
Dr Livingstone Marshall,
Baker's Bay's senior vice-pres-
ident of environmental and
community affairs, said he had
just received a seven-page

report on the Bahamian com-
panies and individuals who had
submitted invoices for work
done on the project, showing
"the financial impact is quite
diverse and quite spread out
across the country".
Dr Marshall said the report
listed about 50 firms and indi-
viduals per page, meaning
about 350 in total had benefit-
ed. with Baker's Bay having
paid out up till last month
some $25 million for invoices
submitted by the likes of attor-
neys, engineers, surveyors and
independent businesses.
Steve Adelson, a partner in
the Baker's Bay developer,
San Francisco-based Discov-
ery Land Company, told The

Tribune: "We're spending an
average of $7-$8 million a
month on the project, and 90
per cent of that has a direct
impact, not only on Guana Cay
but the Abacos and the
Bahamas as a whole.
"We've started closing our
lots [sales]. The stamp tax rev-
enues that will be paid into
government coffers is substan-
Meanwhile, Dr Marshall said
the number of Bahamian com-
panies set to benefit from the
Baker's Bay project was set to
increase over time, and would
extend well beyond the 350
firms impacted to date
"I think that is a very signif-
icant number," Dr Marshall

said of Baker's Bay's impact
to date. "We're talking about a
project that has gone into a
new area and opened up a
number of opportunities for
individuals. We regard that as
pretty significant.
"The financial impact is
quite diverse and quite spread
out across the country,
although of course it is con-
centrated in places like Abaco,
Nassau and Freeport."
Dr Marshall said the total
investment in construction of
the project's Marina Village
facilities, including the mari-
na, a retail shopping centre and
condo-style homes that would
be put back into a hotel rental
pool, was likely to be in the

range of $300-$400 million, giv-
en Discovery Land Company's
track record and emphasis on
creating luxury, upscale com-
He added that once the pro-
ject's real estate component
swung into full gear, "signifi-
cant monies will be paid into
the Public Treasury", an eco-
nomic impact assessment hav-
ing shown this was likely to
amount to $540 million over a
10-year period.
Dr Marshall said that at the
end of June 2007, Baker's Bay
itself was employing around
140-145 people, "the vast
majority of those" being
Bahamians. Around 24 were
non-Bahamians, with some 12

US expatriates working on
Great Guana Cay, and anoth-
er 12 staffing the company's
Palm Beach office.
Some 60-75 personnel from
contractors were also working
on the island at that time, a
number Dr Marshall said was
set to increase once purchasers
of Baker's Bay's real estate
began home construction.
The main Bahamian con-
struction companies working
on the Baker's Bay project
were Bahamas Marine.

Government seeks

more marina policy

. _O consultations

Tribune Business
THE Cabinet is still awaiting
further consultations on the
Government's proposed Mari-
na Policy before it can make
a final decision on what will
be included in the document.
Senator Dion Foulkes, min-
ister of maritime affairs and
labour, said yesterday that con-
sultations with the various
industry stakeholders were
ongoing and their findings
have not yet been released to
"We want to ensure that all
the parties and organizations
have an opportunity to voice
their concerns and opinions
before we make a decision,"
Mr Foulkes said.
The policy first arose under
the former PLP administration,
which felt the Bahamas was
earning a very small portion

of the "potential economic
benefits accruing from the
expanding Bahamian marina
and boating industry".
As a result, the marina poli-
cy suggested a number of taxes
and fees that could be levied to

Albany Phase 1 construction to cost $66. 11 :

Tribune Business Editor
CONSTRUCTION on the Albany Golf
&_Beach.Llub's first phase is estimated
to cost $66.11 million, the project's Envi-
ronmental Impact Assessment (EIA)
reveals, with a warning that the develop-
ment's marina would see an increase in
costs "by millions of dollars" if it was
unable to use concrete floating docks.
The EIA, a copy of which has been seen
by The Tribune, said the greatest costs
for the project's first phase would be
incurred by the golf course and infra-
structure. The former's costs were peggeJd
at $14.5 million, with Albany's own roads,
parks, ponds and lot servicing costing
another $13.17 million.

tial benefits to the Bahamas "far outweigh

Marina costs would rise 'by millions of dollars' and be unc r. o i:, i .

the construction first phase would include:
$3.2 million for modifying Albany
$3.5 million for the clubhouse square
$8.7 million for the marina
$3.6 million for a perimeter wall and
security equipment
$2.9 million on entry gates
$5 million for a water park and adult

ing-oflf period is to see if the
two parties can resolve their
issues without having to take
strike action," Mr Foulkes said.
If it appears that this will not
happen, then Mr Foulkes said it
will be his decision whether to
approve the strike vote. This
cooling-off period should last
another week or so, he
Bank employees convincing-
ly voted to take strike action
because, according to union
president Theresa Mortimer,
the employees in the wallet
area, a highly confidential sec-
tion of the bank, are being
forced to work in a converted
garage area that has no win-
dows and was never intended
for work stations. She alleged
that the area was near a sewer-
age line and was unhealthy.
The matter has been going
on since 2005, she explained,
with a dispute being filed. Ms
Mortimer said the bank had
been given 12 months to relo-
cate the wallet union staff, but
as the matter was not resolved
the union asked the Depart-
Ient of Labour to take a strike
"'The union members voted
convincingly. In Nassau, 238
employees voted 'yes' and two
'no': in Freeport, 45 persons
voted, with 41 'yes' votes, one
spoilt ballot, and three 'no'
votes: in Abaco, there were 12
'yes' and one spoilt ballot; and
in Eleuthera, there were six
'yes' ballots," she explained.
In response to the matter,
First Caribbean issued a state-
ment saving: "We have had a
number of meetings to try and
resolve the matter with the
union but have not been suc-
cessful. Allegations were made
relative to conditions in the cen-
tre, and we wish to advise that


in response thereto major steps
were taken through a local pro-
fessional company to address
and correct the concerns

"It's a very Bahamian dom-
inated project," Dr Marshall
added, pointing out that many
more smaller Bahamian con-
tractors were working on vari-
ous projects at Baker's Bay.
Controversy has surround-
ed the Baker's Bay project
since it was first approved by
the then-Christie administra-
tion, with the Save Guana Cay
Reef Association challenging
the validity of the Heads of
Agreement and seeking to
overturn them via a Judicial
Review case in the Bahamian
Both sides are now awaiting

the Court of Appeal's ruling
on the substantive issues raised
by the case, but in the mean-
time Baker's Bay has been
pushing ahead with its devel-
opment and construction plans.
Mr Adelson said Discovery
Land Company "couldn't be
more pleased" with the
progress made at Baker's Bay,
with the marina "well under
construction" and the golf
course also being worked on.
"We have met or exceeded
every guideline, legal and
moral obligation to the island
and ourselves," Mr Adelson
said. "Once we got restarted
[after the Association success-
fully applied for the courts to
stay construction work], we are
at or ahead of schedule on all

our major infrastructure the
marina and golf course."
He added that no members
of the Save Guana Cay Reef
Association had come to "see
the project first hand" or go
through the development plans
with Baker's Bay executives,
which would have allowed
them to see the project was
"not only meeting but exceed-
ing" the standards and guide-
lines set out in the Environ-
mental Impact Assessment
(EIA) and Environmental
Management Plan (EMP).
"It's disappointing, because
we're doing great things there
and creating a model for sus-
tainable development in an
environmentally sustainable
area," Mr Adelson said.
He added that even the
Association's own environ-
mental expert, Dr Michael
Risk, had acknowledged that
if Discovery Land Company
executed the EIA properly the
project would be successful,
and the standards set by the
Bahamas Environment, Sci-
ence and Technology (BEST)
Commission were being
Dr Marshall said Discovery
Land Company felt "very con-
fident" about the outcome of
the Court of Appeal case, as
the company had complied
with all that had been asked
of them.

Pending sales of existing

homes fell in July to lowest

level since September 2001

AP Business Writer


Pending sales of existing
homes fell in July to the lowest
level in nearly six years as bor-
rowers struggled to finalize

Registration for the 2007-2008 swim year will
take place at Queen's College pool on
Saturday September 8th, 2007 from
9:00a.m. to11:00a.m.

The Federal Deposit Insur-
ance Corp. estimates that 2.5
million mortgages given to bor-
rowers with weak credit will
reset at higher rates and some-
times dramatically higher
monthly payments by the end
of next year.
As of June, 17.5 per cent of
subprime loans given to bor-
rowers with weak credit
nationwide were either 60 or
more days delinquent or in
foreclosure more than double
the last year's rate, according
to FirstAmerican, a research
firm that tracks loans that
aren't backed by Fannie Mae
and Freddie Mac.

home purchases, particularly
in expensive areas.
The National Association of
Realtors said its seasonally
adjusted index of pending
home sales for July fell 16.1
per cent from a year ago and
12.2 per cent from the prior
'July's reading of 89.9 was the
second-lowest ever for the
index and its lowest since Sep-
tember 2001, when the econo-
my was jolted by the terrorist
"Numbers like this should
put to rest the belief that we've
reached the bottom" in the
housing market, said Joel
Naroff, chief economist for
Commerce Bancorp Inc.
"There's still a lot of pain that's
ahead of us."
The index is designed to pre-
dict sales levels over the fol-
lowing two months. A reading
of 100 is equal to the average
level of pending sales activity
in 2001, when the index began.
Lawrence Yun, the Realtors
trade group's senior economist,
called the problems "tempo-
rary," and related to jumbo
home loans above $417,000
that can't be packaged into
securities sold to investors by
government-sponsored mort-
gage giants Fannie Mae and
Freddie Mac.
Some home purchases aren't
closing because mortgage loans
have been "falling through at
the last moment," Yun said in
a statement.
The real estate trade group
found the biggest year-over-
year pending sales declines in
western states, which dropped
21.8 per cent.
The smallest drop was in the
Northeast, which declined 10
per cent.
With defaults rising among
borrowers with weak credit,
lenders have backed off from
all but the safest mortgages.
and many lenders making jum-
bo loans have demanded that
borrowers pay higher rates.
Democratic lawmakers -
and the Realtors' association
- have called for Fannie Mae
and Freddie Mac to be allowed
to purchase loans above the
current limit in high-cost areas
along the East and West
So far the Bush administra-
tion has rejected calls to raise
this limit, as well as limits on
the amount of mortgages and
mortgage-backed securities
that Fannie and Freddie can
hold on their books.
Bush on Friday announced
his administration's first
attempt to help borrowers in
danger of foreclosure.
He detailed plans to help
about 80,000 additional bor-
rowers by using the Federal
Housing Administration, an
agency that backs loans for
low-income borrowers, to
insure more loans.
Investors around the world
have been spooked by the
United States mortgage mar-
ket's problems, amid uncer-
tainty about how much they
will grow.

"Data analysis programs

ing America, but they need to
be tested using dummy data
before being used on real
data," said James Dempsey,
policy director for the Center

for Denoctacy and lechnol-
ogy, a civil liberties group.
"Why this mistake keeps get-
ting made over and over again,
I don't understand."
Among the data sets the pri-
vacy office found had been
plugged into various ADVISE
pilot projects were:
-The no-fly list of people
barred from domestic air trav-
el and the list of people who
require special inspections
before flying.
--More than 3 6 million
shipping recoIds from a com-
meicial data provider with
names of cargo shippers and
-Terrorist Screening Cen-
ter lists of people who attempt-
ed to cross the U.S.-Canadian
border at a port-of-entry.
-Classified intelligence
reports about groups and indi-
viduals involved in illicit traffic
in weapons of mass effect.
Lists of foreign exchange
students, immigrants under
investigation, and people from
special interest countries who
must register with DHS whedl

entering or leaving this couin
-Lists of people wiho aie

Although Knockc said
ADVISE "was never used ill

and DHS had assured ('oi-
gress in 2006 the system w;as
not operational, the inspector
general found that "oil at least;
one occasion, the dala was

"to uncover previously

report quietly made public last

privacy analyses were ignored,
the Privacy Act itself was not
technically violated because
the live data used were cov-

earlier for other programs that

Loan service firms urged to work with mortgage defaulters

AP Economics Writer
The Federal Reserve and oth-
er banking regulators issued
special guidance Tuesday urg-
ing loan service companies to
work with borrowers in dan-
ger of defaulting on their home
The guidelines are not
mandatory, but the regulators
expressed hope that compa-
nies that collect payments on
mortgages would heed the

Federal Deposit Insurance
Corp., said mortgage collec-
tors have the authority under
existing accounting and tax

"More and more consumers

with subprimne and hybrid
mortgage products are lacing
the \,ery real prospect of losing
their homes through foreclo-
sure as their payments reset
and become unaffordable,"
Bair said in a statement. "It is
vital that mortgage services
work proactively with borrow-
ers facing much higher pay-
ments as their interest rates
The banking regulators'
guidance issued by the Fed and
other agencies followed Presi-
dent Bush's announcement
Friday that his administration
was putting forward proposals
aimed at preventing defaults
expected over the next two
years as the housing industry
endures a serious downturn.
The effort by Bush and the
banking agencies is an attempt
to deal with growing anxiety
as more and more homeown-

ers worry about losing theii
homes because they can no
longer pay the mortgage.

adjustable rate mortgages are

of 2008, going from low intro-

Already there have been a
rising number of defaults of
subprime mortgages, loans that

gages are now resetting at
higher interest rates that in
some cases are causing month-
ly payments to double or even
The guidelines were aimed
at addressing the fact that in
many cases the company in
charge of collecting monthly
mortgage payments is not the
same company that originated
the loan.
The guidance said appropri-
ate strategies to ward off
defaults could include modify-
ing the terms of the loan or
deferring payments. Those
modifications could include
converting the loan from an
adjustable rate loan, one in
which the interest rate resets at
periodic intervals, to a fixed-
rate mortgage that would pre-
vent the monthly payments
from rising.
Other possible modifications

would include extending the
length of the loan and rolling
the amount of payments the
borrower has missed into the
total loan amount that must be
paid off.
"Reworking these loans will
achieve long-term sustainable
obligations to provide stability
to borrowers, investors and the
marketplace," Bair said.
Democrats who have criti-
cized the administration's han-
dling of the foreclosure prob-
lem said more must be done.

financial regulators comes very

Chairman Christopher Dodd,
Sen. Charles Schumer, D-
N.Y., said it was a good move
to get federal regulators to jaw-
bone lenders and banks to help
families get out of bad sub-
prime mortgages. But he said
more federal resources must
be devoted to helping local
nonprofit groups that special-
ize in providing counseling to
prevent foreclosures.
"These groups are effective
mediators between the private
sector and families who need
loan modifications," said
Schumer, who has won Senate
Appropriations Committee
approval for an additional $100
million to support foreclosure
prevention counseling.
The joint statement encour-
aged the mortgage servicing
companies to consider refer-
ring borrowers in trouble to
qualified homeownership
counseling services.
Fed Governor Randall
Kroszner said the joint guid-
ance was meant to encourage
the companies that collect pay-
ments on mortgages packaged
into certain debt securities and
sold in debt markets to "reach
out to financially stressed
"Keeping families in, their
homes is a matter of great
importance to the Federal
Reserve," said Kroszner, one
of the Fed board members
who has taken the lead in deal-
ing with the mortgage crisis.
In addition to the Fed and
the FDIC, which insures
deposits at financial institu-
tions, the other groups who
issued the statement were the

the Currency, the Office of
Thrift Supervision, the Nation-

Credit market squeeze 'has yet to play out'

AP Business Writer

The Iull impact of tlhe upheaval
in financial markets "'has yet to
pla\ out," a top administration
official said Wednesday, while
stressing that the efl'fect will be
dampened somewhat by solid
economic growth.
Robert Steel. Treasury under-
secretary for domestic finance,
appeared before a House com-
mittee as the worst housing
slump in 16 years and roller
coaster financial markets cast a
shadow on the economy.

House proposal. Changes being

Democrats go further, however,

in response to voters' growing
Sen. Christopher Dodd, D-
Conn., who heads the Senate
Banking Committee, jumped in
Wednesday with a legislative
proposal aimed at curbing abu-
sive mortgage lending.
Among other things, it would
expand existing borrower pro-
tections under law to cover
high-cost mortgage loans, and
prohibit "balloon" payments
and prepayment penalties on
in the current home-loan cri-
sis, steep prepayment penalties
have made it difficult for some
to get out of their mortgages.
The bill proposed by Dodd,
who is seeking his party's pres-
idential nomination, also would
bar brokers and lenders from
steering borrowers who quali-
ty for conventional mortgages
into higher-cost subprime loans
meant for people with tarnished
ce edit histories
An estimated two million
adjustable-rate mortgages are
scheduled to "reset" this year
and next. jumping from lo\\
"teaser" rates for the first two
or three years to much steeper
rates that could cost borrowers
theii homes. The wave of resets
could crest during the presi-
dential and congressional elec-
tion campaigns next year, and
the issue already has brought
politically tinged debate over
possible responses by the gov-
Rep. Carolyn Maloney. D-
N.Y., called the administration
plan "an important first step"
but added, "it is not enough."
The plan unveiled Friday at

the White H-ouse would make it
easier for bto Inowci s now hold-
ing adjustable i late mortgages
to refinance those loans using
the resources ol the Federal
Housing Administration, a
Depression-era agency created
to help low- and moderate-
income Americans afford
Under the Bush proposal, an
estimated 60,000 homeowners
who have fallen behind on pay-
ments because their mortgages
have reset would be able to refi-
nance with FHA-insured loans.
That marks a significant change
because FHA is not now per-

emitted to insure rcl inniceCd
loans froiii bonloweis who aic
currently dcliCnquI nt.
Defaults have spiked in
recent months ,on high lisk sub
prime mortgages loais tlhai
were extended to borrowers
with weak credit histories.
The rising tide of soured
loans forced a number of
lenders into bankruptcy, while
hedge fund and other big
investors in securities backed
by subprime mortgages took
deep financial hits.
The turmoil spilled over into
global credit markets in recent
weeks as investors faced the

Ianks 'curried favour' with US colleges to protect student loans

Coi respondent
c. 2007 The Boston Globe

(C I I/INNS thMink nutdc donna

tions or gave referral fees as a
"marketing investment" to curry
favor with colleges in attempts to
protect or increase its student
loan busiiinss, a IS Senate conm-

mittee chaired bv Senalor
Edward M. Kennedy said in ;a
report Tuesday.
The report is from the Sien.ate
Health, Education, Labour and
Pensions (Colnlillec, which has
been investigating questionable
practices in the student loan
It supplements an initial report
in June by providing more exam-
ples of lenders such as Citizens,
Citibank, Nelnet, and Sallic Mac
using financial compensation,
services, donations, and other
perks in an effort to gain market
share for the Federal Family Edu-
cation Loan program, which pro-
vides about $50 billion each year
to finance higher education.
" Citizens, the second-largest
bank in New England, is cited
several times in the report for
questionable practices.
For example, Citizens gave
Duquesne University in Pitts-
burgh $2,900 in 2006 as a "imar-
keting fee" equal to 0.5 per cent
of outstanding private loans from
the campus, a practice that the
report says violates the law
because it would give the school a
financial incentive to recommend
the bank.

The bank ended the deal inl
The report ;also notes a 21003 e-
nmail between C'iizens employees
that discussed a.$3,600 sponsor-
ship for Saint Anseli College, of
Manchester, N.II., as well as a
$2,500 sponsorship of a 2004
diversity scholarship dinner for
Sacied I lea rt Iniversity in'Fair-
field, (onn., to try to maintain
the bank's business on the cam-
Saint Anselm did not com-
Sacred Heart said Citizens had
been a preferred lender one that
the college recommended to par-
ents and students as reliable for
years prior to the dinner. The
sponsorship had no bearing on
its financial aid office's decisions,
the university said.
Citizens' internal e-mails also
show that staff members consid-
ered giving away ice cream or
massages as well as providing
temporary staffing for financial
aid offices as marketing tools to
get preferential treatment.
"The findings of the report
underscore the urgent need for
reform of the student loan sys-
tem," Kennedy said in a news

Citizens released a statements
that said the company has revised
its practices.
"Citizens expects the highest
level of ethical conduct from all
our colleagues," the statement
read. "To ensure we continue to
meet the highest standards, we
previously discontinued the indus-
try marketing practices in the
Senate Committee Report spe-
cific to Citizens.

Scrutiny of relationships
between lenders and colleges has
intensified this year as revelations
that officials at the University of
Texas-Austin, Johns Hopkins
University, University of South-
ern California, and Columbia
University received kickbacks
from lenders concert tickets,
stocks, or compensation for con-
sulting in exchange for prefer-
ential treatment.
In response, the US Depart-

nent of Edutcation recently issued
new rules, and Congress is mov-
ing t( pass laws that would pro-
hibit financial relationships.
Terry I lartle, senior vice pres-
ident of the American Council
on Education, a higher-education
trade association representing
2,000 public and private colleges,
said the report provides more
proof of improper relationships
between lenders and colleges.
He said the federal government
will take strong action to clamp
"Government clearly wants
families to feel comfortable that
they are getting advice in cam-
pus finance offices based only on
the interests of students and fam-
ilies," he said.
Hartle, a former Kennedy staff
member, also said the House and
the Senate have both passed bills
that would cut roughly $18 bil-
lion in subsidies to lenders in the
loan program, which were pro-
vided so that firms would lend to
students with little or no credit
history at reasonable terms.
"The federal government has
realized that if the lenders have
the resources to do these
((improper)) things, lender sub-
sidies are too high," he said.
"There is no doubt that Con-
gress is very upset and they'll take
very strong action."

Bahamas visitor arrivals off 10 per cent

Tribune Business Editor
Total visitor arrivals to
the Bahamas were
down by 10 per cent
for June 2007, with the Family
Islands and Grand Bahama
leading the way, again signify-
ing the continuing weakness of
the Bahamian tourism prod-
uct in a challenging competi-
tive environment.
Although total arrivals to
Nassau/Paradise Island were
down by only 1 per cent for
June, largely thanks to
strengthening in the Bahamas'
cruise tourism product, air
arrivals to this destination -
who are-usually the higher
spending stopover tourists,
paying more than $1,000 per
head fell by 10 per cent.
Overall, for June 2007 air
arrivals to the Bahamas overall
were off by 8 per cent, with

Grand Bahama down 10 per
cent and declines also experi-
enced by Andros, Cat Cay,
Eleuthera and Exuma.
The islands with an
improved air arrivals showing
were Abaco, up just 1 per cent,
Cat Island, Long Island, Bimi-
ni and San Salvador and Berry
Islands, the latter two up 10
per cent.
For the 2007 half-year, which
is the six months to end-June
2007, total air arrivals to the
Bahamas were down by 7 per
cent. Air arrivals to
Nassau/Paradise Island for the
half-year were down. by 9 per
cent, while on Grand Bahama
these arrivals were off by 6 per
Bahamian hotel and tourism
executives have fingered a vari-
ety of reasons for the decline in
both air and cruise.visitors to
this nation, including the US
passport requirements of the

Western Hemisphere Travel
Initiative (WHTI); increased
regional and global competi-
tion; and a soft marketing cam-
paign during early 2007.
On the cruise ship front,
things are not much better
when it comes to arrivals, with
total cruise arrivals by first port
of entry for the 2007 half-year
down 5 per cent for the
Bahamas as a whole.
For Nassau/Paradise Island,
cruise arrivals were off 3 per
cent compared to 2006 figures
for the 2007 half-year, while
arrivals were down 12 per cent
for Grand Bahama and 7 per
cent for the Family Islands.
However, June produced
better news. for Nassau/Par-
adise Island and Grand
Bahama when it came to cruise
arrivals, as these were up 8 per
cent and 4 per cent respective-
ly when it came to comparisons
with 2006.

Yet the Bahamas overall saw
a 10 per cent reduction in
cruise arrivals, thanks to a stag-
gering 40 per cent drop in
Family Island arrivals, indicat-
ing the cruise lines drastically
reduced their private island
The Ministry of Tourism
said cruise arrivals to Nas-
sau/Paradise Island increased
in june because Carnival and
Norwegian Cruise Lines
brought in more passengers,
more than offsetting the reduc-
tion in arrivals brought in by
Imperial Majesty Cruises and
Royal Caribbean Internation-
The Ministry of Tourism
said: "Carnival brought in 11
per cent more cruise passen-
gers than in the same period
of 2006. Norwegian Cruises
brought in 156 per cent more
passengers than in the same
period of 2006.
"This increase in cruise
arrivals to Nassau/Paradise
Island by Carnival and Nor-
wegian was not enough, how-
ever, to offset the June year-to-

date decline for the island hut
it did improve the overall out-
look for cruise arrivals to the
On Grand Bahama, Carni-
val brought in 56 per cent more
passengers by first port of
entry than they did in June
2006, while Discovery Cruise
Line brought in 18 per cent
more passengers.
"The increase in the num-
ber of cruise arrivals brought in
by Carnival and Discovery
Cruise lines during the month
of June were enough to offset
the decline in cruise passen-
gers by Royal Caribbean,
Cunard Cruises and Windjam-
mer Cruises for the month,"
the Ministry of Tourism said.
In the Family Islands, sea
arrivals in June fell 37 per cent
because of the 40 per cent drop
in cruise passenger arrivals by
first port of entry.
The Ministry of Tourism
said: "Major cruise lines like
Disney Cruises, Norwegian
Cruises and Carnival Cruises
brought in significantly fewer
passengers to these islands as a

first port of entry. Carnival
Cruises and Norwegian Cruise
lines opted to go to
Nassau/Paradise Island more
as a first port of entry in the
month of June than in the
same period of 2006.
"Disney Cruises Disney
Magic was re-routed to the
Mediterranean and therefore
did not visit Castaway Cay at
all as a first or second port of
entry during the month of June
"This is one of the major
reasons for the decline in the
number of Cruise arrivals to
the Out Islands.
"Carnival Cruises brought in
61 per cent less passengers to
Half Moon Cay as a first Port
of entry than they had in June
2006, as the Fantasy and Ela-
tion were not sent to the island.
"The Norwegian Dawn did
not go into Great Stirrup Cay
as a first port of entry but as a
second port of call.
"The Norwegian Dawn
made calls to Nassau/Paradise
Island first before going on to
Great Stirrup Cay."

cent shareholding, neither does
the paper trail.
"There is no evidence of any
such assertion prior to 2006
and, indeed, on one occasion
after 2006 the first defendant
[Sir Jack] contradicted that
assertion. The preponderance
of evidence points to a share-
holding of 50-50 between the
first defendant and Mr St
George, and to a trust of Mr St
George's IDC shares by Fidu-
ciary Management Srvices

FMS was central to the case.
The St George estate had
argued that it was a segregated
accounts company, acting as
nominee and trustee for vari-
ous accounts and investments
ultimately beneficially owned
by the Hayward and St George
Among those investments
was Mr St George's 50 per cent
stake in IDC, and the estate
argued that beneficial owner-
ship of FMS did not translate
into ownership of its invest-
ments portfolio. Sir Jack.
though, had argued that
because FMS was owned 50/50
by himself and Mr St George,
together with the fact that his
wholly-owned company.
Seashells Investments. owned
the other 50 per cent of IDC.
this gave him 75 per cent own-
Justice Allen, though, shot
down Sir Jack's claim that his
IDC shareholding was
increased by 25 per cent as a
result of Donald de la Rue, the
GBPA's former chief financial
officer, transferring one share
to him that effectively held the
balance of power in FMS -
both Sir Jack and Mr St
George having owned 499
shares each.
Justice Allen found that Mr
de la Rue did not have the
authority to transfer that share.
as it was being held by Camp-
bell Secretaries, the Caymans
Islands-registered agent for
FMS, on behalf of Sir Jack and
Mr St George jointly.
But even if Mr de la Rue did
have that authority. Justice
Allen said she accepted his evi-
dence and that of his succes-
sor, lan Barry, that FMS's only

income was management fees
earned from managing the
investments of Sir Jack, Mr St
George and those belonging
to their friends and families.
"I am satisfied, then, that
shares in FMS have no bearing
on the ownership of the assets
of IDC, GBPA or Port Group
Ltd, and that the transfer of a
share in FMS could not
increase the first defendant's
shareholding in IDC as
alleged." Justice Allen found.
Mr de la Rue said the fax
request from Sir Jack for him
to transfer the one FMS share
he held to him had come 'out
of the blue' in October 2006,
and he complied although no
reason was given for the
Justice Allen also found that
Mr St George and Sir Jack
orally agreed that the former
would run the GBPA in
exchange for a 50 per cent
stake in its then-holding com-
pany. IDC Panama, and that
the March 11, 1982, letter
heavily relied upon by the
plaintiffs to support their case
as evidence of such an agree-
ment, was "signed by [Sir Jack]
with full knowledge and under-
standing of its contents and
Both Willie Moss and Carey
Leonard, former and current
general counsel for the GBPA,
identified Sir Jack's signature
on various documents, saying
they had seen it on many occa-
sions "and commented on [his]
reluctance to sign any docu-
ment unless he was fully
briefed about the contents".
Sir Jack, they added, would
never sign a document he did
not understand.

Patrice Ellis receives certification

it was expected that children

Today, we are faced with a
generation of young people
that are being raised by the
standards that they see on

at them in the pop music of

the order of the day to a great

with, are having a difficult

young people like them are doing pos-
itive things. A lot of them simply don't
have a good example to follow, so we
want to show them that they are bet-

said Mr Sumner.
CAU is hoping that through their
music they can encourage other young
people to pursue musical endeavours
and quit wasting their time and ener-

gy on activities that will not produce
good results in their lives. Music, Mr
Sumner said, can be one positive way
for young people and older folks
alike to release their frustrations.
"A lot of what's going on in our
communities is pent up frustration
and people not having a way to
release it. Hopefully, we can help to
sort of release that tension, then, we'll
be able to see some productivity in
their lives," Mr Sumner added.
As members of Christian Artists

to unite the communities in hopes of
creating a better Bahamas. Pointing to
the 53 murders to date in the
Bahamas, organizers say that this level
of violence is unacceptable and "cuts
at the very fibre of our Christian
based society".


For CAU, the blending of such a
diverse group of artists something
that is happening for the first time in

that gospel artists in the country are
not competing with each other, but
are instead dedicated to following the

'Let's blame the devil!'


My people are destroyed for
lack of knowledge.
Hosea 4:6
This portion of scrip-
ture is often quoted
by the religious mind-
set throughout the Bahamas -
in our homes, on the streets,
in our churches and even in
the clubs. In most cases
because we are a religious
Christian nation our igno-
rance and rebellion to the
essence of this scripture is
always displayed. This scrip-
ture goes on to say: because
thou hast rejected knowledge,
I will also reject thee, that thou
shalt be no priest to me: seeing
thou hast forgotten the law of
thy God, I will also forget thy

As it is known everything
rises and falls upon leader-
ship, so it follows that this
country takes it's direction
based upon the leading of its
leaders. It's not the politicians
that I'm concerned about
however, but rather the reli-
gious leaders of the country.
Those who stand behind pul-
pits testy-lying and prophet-
lying in Father Yahweh's
name; whenever Israel drifted
off course Father Yahweh
always held His designated
authority, the priest, account-
able for the nation.
The Bahamas is so steeped
in religion and tradition that
as a people, some of us have
made major decisions based
upon a favourite scripture
verse of the bible without
studying the entire chapter to

. '


get a full understanding of
their favorite verse. Then,
when things don't turn out
the way they expected, they
resort to blaming the devil.
Hosea 4:6 starts of by say-
ing "My People", II
Chronicles 7:14 starts of by
saying "If my people". Father
Yahweh is neither talking
about or too the heathens,
but rather to those who are
called by His name. I will
never hold the police or the
Government responsible for
the high murder rate and
other crimes committed in
this country. Notwithstanding
that they do have a job and
responsibility to enact and
enforce the laws of the land.
The blame for the wicked,
evil spirit of crime and other
ill's that are wreaking havoc
throughout the Bahamas is
due to the lack of true Godly
First of all, God is not
impressed with the size of
buildings and congregations
that the religious leaders are
so interested in; He's not
moved by the sales of our
tapes, books and other mate-
rials; what really moves God
is obedience to His word. The
disunity, strife, envy, confu-
sion, competition and rebel-
lion that exists within and
among the churches have
opened the door to every evil
work that's taking place here
in the Bahamas. (James 3:16 -
For where envying and strife
is, there is con fusion and
every evil work).

As statistics will show there
are over 4,)000 churches
throughout the Bahamas, and
in some communities there
are seven or eight churches

which are all supposed to be
calling on the same God.
Despite what you religious
leaders may think about this,
all of these churches are not
called and ordained of Father
Yahweh. God is not the
author of confusion. (I
Corinthians 14:33, 40 For
God is not the author of con-
fusion, but of peace, as in all
churches of the saints. And
whenever He does anything it
is done decently and in order).
So, as a Christian nation we
can pray and fast all we want
and when that does not yield
the desired results, we can
change the Government
again. Why don't we just add
the word insane before the
word Christian, and call the
Bahamas an Insane Christian
The definition of insanity
is: continually doing the same
thing, and expecting a differ-
ent result.
Looking very closely at this
definition, a clear picture of
the Bahamas and its systems
emerges. Again, I don't and
can't blame the politicians for
the moral and spiritual decay
of this once beautiful
Bahamas, but rather I do
blame the selfish, religious
leaders whose passion and
motives are to get all they
can and can all they get.
These leaders have been
lying in bed with the politi-
cians for years and this is one
of the reasons the church
seems so powerless in the
land because the politicians
know that they've got their
PLP or FNM bishop, apostle,
prophet and pastor to convey
their political agenda and
messages to the people. This
nation is in such a deplorable
spiritual state to the point
that we're constantly selling
our inheritance to the devil
while the religious come
together in prayer agreement
for the prosperity and well
being of the country.
Every evil work one can
think of or imagine will come
upon us as a result of wicked
church leadership (James
3:16). Religious leaders and
people don't want to hear the
truth; they would prefer to
hear about how God's going
to bless them with a house, a
car, a new job or some money
as they continue to live life as
they please. I'm sorry! But

for thatgpe of message, ask
your religious leader to pub-
lish what you want to hear.
Since coming back to the
Bahamas I've heard so much
foolishness from the mouth of
religious leaders which the
people are happily eating and
saying amen too. Religion has
taught the people to blame
the devil for everything that's
going wrong in their lives.
Nobody wants to be held
accountable for the results
they're experiencing based
upon the decisions and choic-
es they've made.
Instead of doing what I
John 1:9 says: "If we confess
our sins, he is faithful and just
to forgive us our sins, and to
cleanse us from all unright-
eousness". Most people feel
better blaming the devil, the
Government or whoever for
their condition in life. Rather
than just quoting a portion of
Hosea 4:6. study the entire
chapter and see what Father
Yahweh said to the children
of Israel and how He rebuked
the priests.
Here are a few verses of
Hosea 4 from the NLT:
v2 You curse and lie and
kill and steal and commit
adultery. There is violence
everywhere, with one murder
after another.
v4 Don't point your finger
at someone else and try to
pass the blame! Look, you
priests, my complaint is with
v5 As a sentence for your
crimes, you will stumble in
broad daylight, just as you
might at night, and so will
your false prophets. And I will
destroy your mother, Israel.

You religious leaders can
get on the television or radio
stations, hack, hoop, scream
and prophet-lie all you want
about how God's going to
bless this land. Let me tell
you, God won't bless any
mess. The devil is a lair.

A time

to collect memories

T here comes a time
when we all need to
leave our familiar
routines behind and experi-
ence a new rhythm: to stop
working and rest and renew
our energies. We all know
persons whose spouse dies
before retirement. If you
work hard, meet your obliga-
tions, and help others, you
deserve to enjoy some of the
Fruit of your labour.
How do you find Sabbath
rest in your life? When do
you stop to give God thanks
for the gift of leisure and
pleasure? There is a time to
turn off the computer, the
telephone and cell phone, the
television and the radio, and


he still before the Lord in the
beauty of holy silence.
There is a time to stop
being greedy for more and
give the body, mind and spir-
it a rest.
There is a time if at all pos-
sible to see how other people
live, to learn other ways of
handling problems, to be less
insular and petty so as to
appreciate and respect other
people and their cultures.
A time to prepare for
death and to meet
God face to face
When a friend or loved one

is preparing to die, this is the
time to answer questions
honestly and openly, to

remind the person of God's
grace and mercy, to reiterate
the power of G(od's forgive-
ness and love, and to recall
the joy of salvation now and
after death.
Where irc VOLI on your
spiritual journey.'? Are you
waiting g to retire before you
\\ork for the Lord'. Do you
know enough scripture to
face your death with the
quiet assurance that the word
of God is your anchor? Are
you at peace with God right
now? Are you living a godly
life so that other people are
able to see the light of Christ
shining in you and make their
way out of darkness toward
the marvelous light of faith in
Jesus Christ'?
Our time will come and we
will die if Jesus Christ does

not return before. Are you
ready to travel to your home-
land in heaven io are you
clinging too tightly to the
things of this world that will
not last?
There is a time to live live
life to its fullest giving God
the praise and glory in your
living. There is a time to die -
to die in all confidence hav-
ing faith that your Saviour
and Lord, who holds you by
the hand now, will take you in
his arms through the door of
death and into the Promised
Land of eternal life.
"Through all the changing
scenes of life, in trouble and
in joy" praise, thank, wor-
ship, trust and obey God and
your life will possess a secret
power that nothing and no
one can destroy.

Let's Talk: The Omnipresence of God

Presented by Universal
Truth Ministries
LET'S talk about a principle (something that
cannot change) that every Christian should be
familiar with the omnipresence of God. Most of
us would agree that God is everywhere, without
exception, right? Psalm 139: 7-10 reminds us that
even in hell God is there, holding us up with his
right hand.
The omnipresence of God is the first of five
principles on which the Universal Foundation for
Better Living (UFBL) is built. Universal Truth
Ministries (UTM) is a member church of the
UFBL, which is headquartered in Chicago, Illinois.
We are a Bible-based ministry for thinkers, mean-
ing that we use the Bible as our guide to better liv-
ing in an intentional manner, by studying the Bible
and asking questions until we get the revelation
from God.
It is most effective to begin at the beginning
and, "the beginning of knowledge is reverence for
the Lord" (Proverbs 1:7). Ilowever vou see God. I
am sure we can aiglree that nothing can or does or
will exist withouLI (iod.
)Omnipresence is li" e Ilrsl principle lJ c;IU ,c ill
things begin, conlinil ci ] :I l li hc!'in :i .llii n

God. If the house
is to stand, it must PART ONE
be built on order -
you don't build the
walls, then the
foundation. Any house built in this fashion will in
time fall down. In the same way, the foundation of
the spiritual journey called life is the recognition
of God.
A few years ago, I realized that I had been using
this word "omnipresence" all my life, but I did not
really know what it meant, so 1 looked it up in the
dictionary. It means "all presence." Not some pres-
ence, or most presence or only what I call good
presence ALL presence. Then I looked up the
word "all": it means wholee amount or quantity
of, everyone, everything."
The omnipresence of God refers to the illnesss"
or oneness of God. 77here is one hot I, tdil onet
Spirit... one Lord. i, onie 'iAith, one hblptiis, Ou( God
and Fathlli'r- ofall, who is abovc Iall, aInd ihroul]h aill,.

I went to the dictionary because I realized that I
had, for as long as I could remember, said I believe
that God is omnipresent, omnipotent, and omnis-
cient but I never bothered to find out what these
words mean. I just assumed I knew because I had
always heard and used them. I realized that I was
talking, but did not know what I was saying. You
see, when we begin to seriously seek God in our
lives, questions begin to come up.
The question for me was, "What do you
believe?" It was time to find out.
Having defined omnipresence as "all," another
question came up: do I believe that God is ALL
When you seek God, the foundational questions
have to be answered first: you are building a
house, and this house, more than any other you ,
will ever encounter, MUST stand. It must there-
fore be built very carefully, from bottom up.

Prejudice and discrimination very

evident in our society, says bishop

Striking out against the racism
and prejudice that continues
to define an ugly space with
our society, a respected member of
the Christian community said thai
not until Bahamians understand the
concept of being one in Christ, wili
the country be one Bahamas.
Bishop Simeon Hail, pastor of the
New Covenant Baptist Church, in a
recent address, ;aid the issues of
prejudice and discrimination are very
evident in the Bahamian society.
"Take for example the fact that
gender discrimination is alive and
well in the Bahamas.
Notwithstanding the fact that we say
that the Bahamas is a democracy,
women still do not play as large a
role in elective politics as their num-
bers and education might seem to
suggest," said Bishop Hall.
"Also, take note that ours is a
country where tens and thousands of
out newest Bahamians are of Haitian
and Jamaican ancestry, thus effec-
tively changing the mix that we know
of as the Bahamas."
Each Bahamian, he said, must
come to realize that his welfare is
"intimately bound up in that of all
Bahamians" regardless of their
racial background. "This is the new
truth for one Bahamas. Otherwise,
chaos beckons."
Bishop Hall said that men like Sir
Durward Knowles and Sir Orville
Alton Turnquest, would want
Bahamians to know the truth that
whether one is red or yellow, black
or white, he is still precious in the
sight of God.
"For my part, 1 would tell you that
this is the God's truth; namely that
God is no respector of persons and
that those who discriminate in word,
thought or deed against any of God's
creatures is. guilty of sin," he said.

Unfortunately though, the vestiges
of racism still exist here, where the
black man feels inferior to the white
man. But in the concept of one
Bahamas there is no room for such
thinking, said Bishop Hall.
"...God knows that ours is a sin-
sickened society where there are
white and not-so white people who
routinely yield to the temptation of
believing that somehow just because
they are not black, they are superior
to their black cousins, and sometimes
their own brothers and sisters albeit
of the half, quarter or whatever
other fraction of blood you can imag-
Bishop Hall said that in Galatians
3:23-29, Paul is figuring out an
approach as he attempts to integrate

"Take for mP le
the fact that gender
discrimination is alive

and education might
seem to suggest."

Bishop Simeon Hall

his Jewish faith and all of the tradi-
tions that came before Christ with
his experience of Jesus and all that
came after the life, death and resur-
rection of Christ.
As Paul goes through this process
of integrating his Jewish faith and
tradition with his experience of
Christ, he becomes the key
spokesperson of a divided humanity
that is also trying to figure out what
the good news of Jesus Christ really
Paul eventually figures this out as
the early Church faces its first great
crisis a racial crisis. The church is
growing and is now made up of a
diverse group of people who are
seeking to follow Jesus. Sixty years
have passed since Christ's death and

At first as it becomes evident that
God has done something new for
humanity in Jesus Christ, all of the
disciples of Jesus were Jewish. They
naturally took the gospel to the Jews
first in Jerusalem, and then they
spread out to Judea, then Samaria.
"Even in Galilee. the gospel was
first taken to synagogues. It doesn't
take a lot to imagine the divisions
between those Jews who accepted
Jesus as Messiah and those who saw
them as a threat to the faith of
Israel," Bishop Hall said.
"And when Paul took the gospel
to Macedonia, opening up the good
news to the non-Jewish world, he
first went to synagogues where Jews
and Gentile seekers would gather."
As the early church now made up
of Jews and Gentiles began to wres-
tle with the inherent tensions of this
new integration, Paul revealed his
teaching that his mission to new con-

and non-Jewish branches. This con-

have been divided up to this point in
human history belong together in
community. We do so on the basis of
God's faithfulness to keep his prom-

Hall said.

CAU hopes community outreach

will change social fabric of nation

Christian Artists Unite seeks to reach one individual at a time

Tribune Feature Writer
C hristian artists will unite
this weekend for a commu-
nity effort that they hope
will change the social fab-
ric of the entire nation. But rather
than trying to conquer these social ills
in one day, these artists have a strate-
gic plan reach one individual at a
time, one community at a time. And
they begin in Farm Road this
Saturday at the Church of God of
Prophecy East Street Tabernacle. The
event runs from 6pm to 9pm.
"In order to see change in the
nation, we have got to start with the
individual. We are not trying to lbe
superman here. We realize that any
effectiveness will be seen in smaller
communities first as we seek to reach
individuals," said Edison Sumner.
media representative for the group.
Coming together under the banner
of Christian Artists Unite (CAU) a
name that sounds almost militant, and
in many ways their mission is are a
number of Bahamian choirs and
ensembles, including Edison Sumner
and the Voices of Praise, Shaback,
Harmonious Praise, Tabernacle
Concert Choir, Church of God
Incorporated Mass Choir, and
Mountain of Fire.
While each of these ministries has
experienced individual success in the
gospel music industry through record-
ings, local projects, outreach, and
national initiatives, they have put
aside their individual missions to
come together to infiltrate all of the

inner-city communities with the mes-
sage of hope in Jesus Christ without
having to preach. Instead, CAU will
use their music, comedy and brief
exhortations to reach the community.
On Saturday, the residents of the
Farm Road community will be treat-
ed to a free concert featuring the
CAU Mass Choir in the parking lot of

the Church of God of Prophecy on
East Street. The event, which runs
from 6pm to 9pm, will be hosted by
Dynamite Daisy (Terez Davis).
The group will also conduct a walk-
about, and meet and greet in the
Farm Road area from 4:30pm that
day. They will counsel if there is a
need, challenge where necessary, but

above all, they will go with a message
of encouragement to those residents
who may be discouraged and feel as if
they are fighting a losing battle.
"Because of all of the social situa-
tions that are going on now. and the
incidents of homicides, we think that
it is important to use our gifts in order
to offer a better solution to people.
And going into the communities and
having the opportunity to meet the
people and speak with them is anoth-
er way we can do that," Mr Sumner
told Tribune Religion.
"We don't have anything tangible
to give them. but the objective is to
attract t young people to the event.
Christian Artists Unite have already

pi-ogramme. The group will conduct a
walkabout and free concert in each
community they visit." Mr Sumner
l holding concerts in all of these
areas requires money for stage, sound
equipment, etc, but the group is not
waiting on sponsors, donations or any
other organisation to make it happen
for them. Though they will be receiv-
ing no monetary profit from this ven-
ture, the members of Christian Artists
Unite have taken out of their own
pockets to fund their work...and the
reward will come from seeing lives
changed through this outreach effort.
"A lot of these young people just
