More than 60 hired before

election were below minimum

wage for government staff


* By BRENT DEAN
Tribune Staff Reporter
bdean@tribunemedia.net
THE PRIME Minister yes-
terday tabled in the House of
Assembly a list of temporary
contracts issued by the former
PLP government, which reveals
that more than 60 persons were
hired before the election below
the minimum wage for govern-
ment workers, on short term
contracts.
Mr Ingraham tabled the doc-
ument of Family Island con-
tracts in response to a claim by
MICAL MP Alfred Gray that
the FNM government vic-
timised Nadine Ingraham, caus-
ing her termination from a jan-
itorial post at the All Age
School in Inagua.
This information set off a .
heated exchange between the
Prime Minister and Mr Gray in
which Mr Ingraham questioned

defended his actions as the min-

"I inform the honourable
members that Mrs Ingraham's
employment was not terminat-
ed by my government," the
prime minister said. "Rather,
the short term employment
authorised by the Christie
administration for Mrs Ingra-
ham came to an end on 30 June,
2007."
"I am advised that Mrs Ingra-

Ministry yet to receive 'official'
application for review of'Ninety' case


* By TANEKA THOMPSON
Tribune Staff Reporter
tthompson@tribunemedia.net
ALTHOUGH the media has
received a written request from
alleged "drug kingpin" Samuel
'90' Knowles appealing to the
government for a review of his
extradition case, the Ministry of
Foreign Affairs has yet to
receive an "official" application
for review, officials said yester-
day.
As reported this week, the
alleged drug trafficker forward-
ed a letter to the media earlier
in the week, detailing what he
called a violation of his consti-
tutional rights every day he is
allowed to remain in a US
prison. Knowles also claimed
the former administration was
duped by US authorities during
his extradition and called for a
review of his case by the gov-
ernment.
Yesterday Deputy Prime
Minister and Minister of For-
eign Affairs Brent Symonette
weighed in on the much debat-
ed issue of the extradition of
Knowles to the United States


to face specific drug charges
stemming from an indictment
in 2000.
Mr Symonette told The Tri-
bune during an interview that
while he has seen a copy of the
letter written by Knowles, his
office has not received a formal
application on the matter.
"I don't think this is a mat-
ter to be dealt with in the media
(but) I believe in due course we

Four Bahamians
on Interpol's
fugitive list
By ALISON LOWE
Tribune Staff Reporter
alowe@tribunemedia.net
THERE are four Bahami-
ans currently on Interpol's
fugitive list, it has been
revealed.
The Bahamian nationals
join over four dozen other
Caribbean nationals who fea-
ture on the list, and cause the
Bahamas to come third overall
in the Caribbean region -
despite its small population -
for the number of its citizens
highlighted on the organisa-
tion's website.
On the international police
organisation's list are: Joseph
Anderson, now aged 54 years
old, Yvon George, 38, Michael
Bernard Knowles, 40, and
Samuel Hesakiah Mais, 36.
According to information on
the site, Anderson was born
in Grand Bahama, and is dis-
tinguishable by a scar on his
forehead. George, born in

Some constituents on
Maynard-Gibson's
election court petition
seeking legal advice
By PAUL
TURNQUEST
Tribune Staff Reporter
pturnquest@tribunemedia;net
AT LEAST 10 constituents
whose names have appeared
on the election court petition
filed by PLP Senator Allyson
Maynard-Gibson are now
seeking legal advice about
what recourse they might
have against Mrs Maynard-
Gibson, FNM chairman John-
ley Ferguson confirmed yes-
terday.
Mr Ferguson said that these
residents, with whom he has
personally spoken, are deeply
offended that Mrs Maynard-
Gibson has published their
names. Mr Ferguson said that
in doing so, the PLP chal-
lenger is not only possibly
calling into question these
persons' nationality, but it
might be interpreted as an
assault on their individual
character.
"They are seeking legal
advice as to what they can in
relation to what she has
done," Mr Ferguson said.
"I have spoken to more
than 10 persons whose names
have appeared on that list,
who are very concerned that
their character is being tam-
, pered with, so to speak. And
they are concerned that she
went ahead and put their
names there, and they are
seeking some legal advice as
to what they can do to have
her retract them.
"Because they live in
Kennedy Subdivision, in
Pinewood, they are resident
there, and they have lived
there for many, many years.
So for her to throw their
name about there like that,
they are very, very con-
cerned," he said.

Activist calls for




ban on sodomy


SODOMY should be made
illegal in the Bahamas according
to Clever Duncombe.
SMr Duncome touched on this
.and many other issues when he
appeared on the GEMs radio
show "The Way Forward" yes-
terday.
He called for more legal pro-
tection for fathers and claimed
'that Bahamian mothers have a
disproportionate number of
,,rights with regard to children
:- born out of wedlock.
SMr Duncombe, the leader of
the activist group Bahamian
SFathers for Children Every-
where, was accompanied by fel-
low activist Diamond Harrison.
In recent weeks, Mr Dun-
combe has argued for the gov-
ernment to hold a referendum
, to determine whether the gay
lifestyle should be made illegal.
SYesterday, he said the
Bahamian public should specif-
, ically decide if sodomy in a pri-
vate setting is to remain a legal
act.
SHe argued that if sodomy and
subsequently the homosexual
"lifestyle were made illegal, there
would be no need for the Chris-
tian Council to organise protests
against mo% ies like Brokeback


Mountain, gay cruises, or calls
for a gay television channel.
"I'm here to outlaw it... any
policy that I find to be promot-
ing this (gay) agenda, I will kill
it before it grow," Mr Dun-
combe said, stressing that he is a
proponent of changing the situ-
ation through legislation, not
violence.
The Sexual Offences Act,
which made sodomy between
two men illegal, was repealed
in 1991. Mr Duncombe and his
organisation are seeking to have
that decision reversed.
Mr Duncombe claimed that
the 1991 change was made by


"stealth" as Bahamians were
not allowed to weigh in before
the law was changed. He as-crt-
ed that if asked, the majority of
Bahamians would support the
re-imposition of the Act.
"There were many persons
before Cleaver Duncombe .
who were addressing the issue .
,. but the distinct difference
.between Cleaver Duncombe
and the rest of them, is that the\
were gay bashing. I run a dif-
ferent campaign, I am not bash-
ing on lesbians or gays, what l
am addressing here ... is the
legislation," Mr Duncombe said
yesterday.
He added that his organisa-
tion had made an express
request to the Christian Council
for their support in addressing
the sodomy law, but has not
received any response.
Mr Harrison stated that a
return to "righteousness" would
help the nation rid itself of the
social ills, which come about as
the country becomes more
exposed to alternative lifestyles
through television and the
media.
"If its only me and Mr Dunti
combe prepared to fight this
(war) we will do it," he said. :

,Parents urged to check children's sight


1 By ALISON LOWE
Tribune Staff Reporter
I alowe@tribunemedia.net
SIN recognition of World Sight
"Day today, the Bahamas
Alliance for the Blind and Visu-
ally Impaired has urged parents
Ito realise that their children
might have sight problems and
to take appropriate action.
SAccording to Desmond
,'Brown, president of the BABVI,
"sometimes we fail to realise
recognizee the fact that children
are having sight problems- they
go to school and they are not
learningg properly (and) we do
not attribute that to the fact that
they aren't seeing properly "
He said this can cause the


children to endure unnecessary
hardship.
Mr Brown said that World
Sight Day should be a day to
recognize the "worldwide prob-
lem of avoidable blindness" in
particular, as well as the issues
and problems that exist for
blind and visually impaired peo-
ple in general.
The president said that while
millions of people suffer from
blindness "they wouldn't have
to go blind if the proper pre-
cautions and medication were
given."
In light of this year's theme,
"Blindness and childhood", Mr
Brown appealed to parents,
guardians and teachers "to look
and to realise and recognize


when their children might be
experiencing sight problems and
to take appropriate action by
having your child get help."
Mr Brown said that in thd
Bahamian context, something
that must also be addressed is
the fact that some families will
"hide away" their blind children
and relatives.
"To parents whose children
might be blind or have an
impairment, look upon those
children as human beings," he
said. "Take them out, let them
be exposed to the world and
their surroundings.
"They are persons, who w ith
the right training and opportu-
nities, can achieve their goals
in lile." he said

Petitions being
raised for release
of prisoner featured
in The Tribune
TWO petitions are being
raised to call for the release
of Trent Albury, the 33-year-
old Abaconian whose plight
in Fox Hill Prison was high-
lighted in Monday's Tribune.
Supporters in Abaco and
Grand Bahama will urge the
government to halt extradi-
tion proceedings against Mr
Albury and free him from jail
immediately.
Mr Albury is said by
friends and family to be on
the brink of suicide after
being arrested and jailed 11
months ago pending extradi-
tion proceedings by the US
government.
US authorities want Mr
Albury to be returned to
Florida, where he was being
held under house arrest for
alleged manslaughter follow-
ing a road accident in which a
woman died.
His lawyer, Murrio Ducille,
has argued in court that the
case is not extraditable and
that his client deserves bail.
Family friend Jeanne
Kemp told The Tribune last
nighr ,hat Abaco and Grand
Bahama supporters were rais-
ing petitions calling on the
government to step in.
",'e plan to demonstrate
outside parliament if this
matter is not resolved," said
' s Kemp. who visits Mr
Albury weekly with hot food.
"Feelings are running high at
the:tnmneirit."
Phe said the INSIGHT arti-
cle was "overwhelming" and
ha. lifted Mr Albury's spirits.

Murder charges
to be filed in
missing boater
case in Florida
* MIAMI
FEDERAL prosecutors
planned to file murder charges
Wednesday against two men in
the, killings of the captain and
three crew members of a charter
fishing boat, law enforcement
officials told The Associated
Press.
The charges were expected to
befiled against Kirby Logan
Archer, 35, and Guillermo
Zatabozo, 19, according to two
federal law enforcement officials
wlip spoke on condition of
anonymity because the charging
documents had not yet been
file.
The four people disappeared
aftfr Archer and Zarabozo char-
teted the "Joe Cool" fishing
boat last month purportedly for
a pleasure trip to Bimini,
Bahamas. Both Archer and
Zaabozo, who are in custody,
could get the death penalty or
life in prison if convicted.
Attorneys for Archer and
Z abozo did not immediately '
return telephone calls seeking
coinment. A hearing is sched-
ul d Thursday in federal court
foi;both men.
,The two men were found
fl'arine. in the boat's life raft
negr Cuba with no sign of the
captain and crew.
Zarabozo initially claimed
thht a group of pirates had
attacked them at sea and fatally
shot the crew. Their bodies have
neyer been found, but investi-
gatprs recovered four shell cas-
ings and blood from the boat.
The boat started out on
coitrse for Bimini on Sept. 22
but then turned sharply south
and was found abandoned and
out of fuel north of Cuba, offi-
ciqls have said. Investigators say
the two might have been
attempting to reach Cuba.
Zarabozo, of Hialeah, is now
bdimg held on charges of lying


Rita Cosby hits out at


local activist Lincoln Bain


TV PERSONALITY Rita
Cosby last night lashed out at
local activist Lincoln Bain, claim-
ing he was now trying to change
his views on the Anna Nicole
Smith affair, even though they
had already been recorded on
his own website.
Ms Cosby said Mr Bain, in
referring to her ncti book about
Anna Nicole, had claimed on his
website to "know already" what
she was alleging about
Howard K Stern and Larry Birk-
head in the book, Blonde Ambi-
tion.
And he had cited two Haitian
maids who worked for Anna
Nicole as having confirmed the
claims made in her book, she said.
"It's all there on his Mr Con-
troversy website," said Ms Cosby.
"Now he's trying to say some-
thing different."
An angry Ms Cosby's com-
ments came after a weekend bust-
up with Mr Bain in which she
claimed she was "set up" and
asked for money by the two
Haitians.
Mr Bain, in turn, is now threat-
ening to place video footage on
his website showing the full extent
of what he calls a "sting" opera-
tion aimed at catching Ms Cosby
offering deals to the maids.
Last night, Ms Cosby told The
Tribune that she was "very dis-
appointed" at what happened in
Nassau, adding: "I had come to
the Bahamas looking for the
truth."
Her best-selling book, which
purports to tell the truth about
Ster's friendship with Birkhead,
is now the subject of a US lawsuit.
Stern is claiming $60 million in
damages, alleging that Ms Cosby
had made several untrue state-
ments about him and Birhead.
Birkhead is also threatening to
sue.
Last night, however, Ms Cosby
stood firmly behind the book, say-
ing her information had come


.'




... "




from several sources and not the
Haitian nannies.
"I feel extremely confident that
we have the facts, and am very
confident in my sources, which
have not changed," she added.
"We have even had more cor-
roboration since the book was
published. But it makes me won-
der what happened to those peo-
ple in Nassau.
"Is someone paying them to
change their story?"


_ ii
Ms Cosby said she had noth-
ing to fear from what she termed
Stern's "frivolous" lawsuit. "I am
even more sure today than I ever
was. I stand by my story 100 per
cent."
Ms Cosby said she was dis-
turbed, on arriving in Nassau, to
be asked for payment.
"I don't pay for stories," she
said.
Mr Bain couldn't be reached
for comment.

:Alfred Gray puts up a poor case


APPARENTLY PLP MPs are sticking to
Their story that more than 1,000 Bahamians,
temporarily employed just before the elec-
tion, were victimised by the FNM when their
employment was not extended at the com-
pletion of their PLP-issued contracts.
And the:FNM government is holding firm
to its position that not.only did the PLP gov-
ernment hire these workers at below the legal
minimum wage just before the election, but
also set the date when theirem'ployment was
to end. In other words, they were both.hired..
and fired by the PLP.
Documentary evidence supports the
SFNM's position.
Sln the House of Assembly yesterday Prime
-Minister-Hubert Ingraham, in answering a.
question asked of him on this matter by
MICAL MP Alfred Gray, denied that his go-
erinent had fired anyone who had been hired
,during thheldc(i6n period by Mi Gray.
Mhr Gray is'now asking the public to accept
on faith that he intended that every person
Shared b#.him was to be permanently trans-
terred to the civil service list.
SSuch a proposition is an insult to the aver-
age person's intelligence. If one takes the
trouble to .write a letter of intent, then why'
hold back'any part of that intention"' And
why insult intelligent people by pleading with
Stheif to read Nour mind to'discover your
intentt? .
In the case of Mrs Nadine Ingraham, and
two other ifidividuals, the terns of employ-
ment were amended from the four-month
period originally agreed in letters of employ-
ment dated Fpbruary 2, 2007. to a period of
six months in a later letter dated, March 7,
2007; This shows that some thought was given
Sto some of these hirings. Someone took time
to write two letters, obviously to:make Mr
Gray's intent clear. If they had gone to so
much trouble, why didn't Mr Gray, as Minis-
ter of Local Government, include what he
now, claims he intended all along with a sim-
ple line to the effect that at the end of this
...temporary period of employment the people
were to join.the civil service as permanent
talff? A si~mpleliie in!plain English would
haie avoided all the ho~'air expended in the
.House yesterday. .
.Even Mrs Nadine Ingraham, about whom
the argument arose, understood her letter of
employment --it would seem even better

Ingraham was being deployed to the school on
a short term basis as a janitress- March to
June, 2007. On June 30, the date her letter
said her employment ended, the Prime Min-
ister said he was "advised that Mrs Ingraham
left her job site voluntarily and has not
returned."
Obviously Mrs Ingraham read her letter,
understood the game plan it was election
time after all packed her bag and left with-
out an argument on June 30 when her letter
said her job had ended. You see, she didn't
know what Mr Gray now says he had in his
mind. Nor did anyone else.
But as the PLP has acknowledged in vari-
ous statements made since the election, these
persons were hurriedly hired in positions that
had been left vacant for a period of time and
needed to be filled. It has been admitted that
theywereslior6t-term jobs.
Members of the House burst into laughter
when Mr Ingraham in his Communication to
the House reported that 27 of the 59 general
service workers sent on short term contracts
to MICAL were assigned to the Administra-
tor's office in Mathew Town, Inagua. One
had visions of 27 Bahamians huddled in the
Administrator's small office. Mr Gray shout-
ed back that they were not assigned to the
Administrator for his office, but were to be
deployed by him to other areas of MICAL to
do weeding, painting or whatever job could be
found for them. Obviously, there is only so
much that a person can weed and only so
many posts they can paint. So obviously, these
were very short, part-time prospects.
Everything was so hurried after all
remember elections were only around the
corner and these people had to vote that
two persons were sent to the Administrator at
Nicholls's Town, Andros, to report for three
months of work at the Cabbage Hill Primary
School. There was only one difficulty. They
were in Andros and their job was at a school
in the Acklins/Crooked Island constituency.
It was obvious that there was not enough
money to go around. The monthly minimum
wage paid by the Public Service is $890.
These poor souls, hired during an election
period, were paid between $700 and $800 a
month, with one of them, right at the bottom
of the totem poll, taking home $150 a month.
We don't understand why Mr Gray is
putting up such a fuss. With all the evidence
out there it is difficult if not impossible -
to accept his story. He would be wise to
change the subject and find another political
bone to chew on.

EDITOR, The Tribune.
PLEASE allow us valuable
space in your newspaper to follow
through on a letter published sev-
eral weeks ago about littering on
our precious islands. I have writ-
ten also about the litter scattered
on our roadsides for all of us to
bear but the letter did not make
press.
1 try again after watching this
afternoon the total disregard by
several 'youths' riding in the back
of a white Nissan truck iand
throwing their trash out on to the
road after a visit to the beach in
Coral Harbour. Their total disre-
gard of our surroundings caused
me to honk the horn in distaste,
the truck slowed to near stop and
I decided to pass and ask 'why'.
Verbal abuse and angry, obscene
gestures was all I was going to
receive. Their attitude plainly
very hostile as I left them behind
ine.
This prompted several
thoughts. Firstly about articles
read in your paper about street
cleaners being let go from their
jobs and think how it may be time
instead that we say a "big thank
you' to what must be a thankless
job. Our road to the airport from
Coral Harbour has been reli-
giously cleaned during the last
government by a crew. that we
as residents, truly appreciate.
The street cleaners are a very
valuable asset for every day dri-
vers continue to throw, garbage
out of their vehicles Mostl\ I ast
food clientele.
The cleaners have noticeably
been absent and the trash now\
amounts daily.
I ask again that all the "fast
food' merchants start a campaign
in their establishments askiingi
clients NOT to throw their waste
onto oui roadways.
The other thought coming to
mind is the beaches these delin-
quents frequent in Coral Harbour
on the weekends are pl i\ at
properties, not the 'Public Beach'
that is usually used and also
trashed every week.
Some are fenced but the ones
that are open (closer to the
Defence Force) seem to be fair
game for all to use and abuse.
Can we please have some author-
ities present on the weekends to
police these properties to wheIre
they are not trespassed and
trashed for the rest of' us to live
with.
We can now see why the new
developers of the south western
part of the island (South Ocean
and Albany House) may have
thought how to protect their
investment and somehow dis-
courage 'locals' from having
access to the beaches!
They know all too well this
very small slice of our society will
completely ruin the surroundings

PAHO director

is reelected

DR MIRTA ROSES of
Argentina was re-elected yester-
day to a second five-year term as
director of the Pan American
Health Organisation.
She was elected by ministers
of health at the annual meeting of
the Americas' top health author-
ities, the Pan American Sanitary
Conference.
"I am profoundly and sincere-
ly grateful for this expression of
wholehearted support and the
extraordinary honour that you
have just bestowed upon me," Dr
Roses said.
"Promoting health for all is the
North Star that guides and
inspires us. I am moved by the
renewed energy that the Region
has generated with Primary
Health Care."
As the first woman to head
PAHO, Dr Roses said, her elec-
tion "demonstrates that the com-
mitments to gender equity made
by the member states, PAHO and
WHO, and the entire United
Nations system, can become a
reality."


Claim that Haitians


could form 'nation within

a nation' in 20 years


HAITIAN immigrants could
within 20 years form "a nation
within a nation" in the Bahamas,
destabilising the country with a
second wave of colonisation.
This view came yesterday from
retired teacher Jeffrey Davis, an
author who has studied the Hait-
ian diaspora over many years.
Mr Davis, who wrote the book
Flight from the Third World in
the early 1990s, spoke out in
response to Freeport lawyer Fred
Smith's claim that Bahamians
treat Haitians like dogs.
"He is going to lose his credi-
bility making crass statements
like that," he said. "How do
Haitians treat us? They have
broken our laws with impunity.
Mr Smith must realise that
Haitians in Haiti treat Haitians
like dogs, too."
Mr Davis said there was a real
danger of the Bahamas being
infiltrated to such an extent by
another culture that within 20
years there could be "a Haitian
nation and Bahamian nation in
the heart of the Bahamas."
He felt that Haitians were
intent on recolonising the.
Bahamas to escape their own
ravaged homeland.
"They have been independent
since 1804 and should be show-
ing the rest of us the way," he
added. "But they have had 40
coups in the history of their
nation."
Mr Davis said for every 100
illegal Haitian immigrants sent
back to Haiti, 300 were coming
in to join the "bottom tier" of
the economy.
This process could go on
unchecked until it reached a
point where an alien culture
could achieve "power and per-


Need That Special Dress?

Just What You're Looking For


Retired teacher speaks out


mancnce" in this country.
He said "a more ardent, force-
ful and organised" campaign was
needed to repatriate Haitians in
a human manner.
Unless this was done, there
would soon be two nations in the
"womb" of the Bahamas.
Stressing that he had nothing
against Haitians as individuals,
Mr Davis advised immigrants:
"If you come here, come legally
and get yourself regularised. As
things stand, this is an invasion of
the Bahamas."
He said locals resented.hav-
ing to live by the law when


Haitians clearly felt under no
such obligation. "While I pay
BEC, they use a drop-cord," he
said.
Mr Smith's reference to
Haitians being treated like dogs
came during an attack on the
anti-gay campaign. He ques-
tioned the Bahamas' claim to be
a Christian nation, citing treat-
ment of Haitians as one of sev-
eral forms of discrimination in
this country.

Police find hiding


Haitian women


waiting for boat

SIX Haitian women, waiting for a boat to take them to Mia-
mi, were found by police hiding in an apartment in Bimini.
They were flown to the Detention Centre in Nassau.
Shortly after 3pm Monday, Police and Immigration officers
on duty at the South Bimini International Airport, received
information that a group of suspicious persons were hiding in an
apartment building on that island.
The officers went to the apartment, located on Morgan's
Drive, where they discovered six Haitian women, ranging in age
from 16 to 47 years, none of whom had documents authorising
them to be in the Bahamas.
A male, who is also believed to be an illegal Haitian immi-
grant, fled from the building as the officers entered.
He .escaped into the thick bushes.
Up to press time, he had not been located.
The six women, who told officers that they were awaiting the
.arrival of a boat to take them to Miami, were ferried across to
North Bimini and detained at the Alice Town Police Station for
processing.
They were then flown to
New Providence around 3pm ICAL
Tuesday and taken to the I
Carmichael Road Detention
Centre to await repatriation, IFRPS POBE

More land survey




experts are needed


* By DENISE MAYCOCK
Tribune Freeport Reporter
dmaycock@tribunemedia.net
FREEPORT There is a
"dire need" for more experts to
conduct proper land surveys in
the Bahamas.
Lands and Surveys director
Tex Turnquest said this poses
an enormous challenge to the
government, which is in the
process of surveying thousands
of acres of Crown Land.
"There are very few land sur-
veyors that exist in the Bahamas
and if the numbers are not
there, we would have to go out-
side the country to get the
resources that are vitally need-
ed," he said.
Mr Turnquest said the gov-
ernment has embarked on two
separate projects the Land
Use Policy and Administration
Project (LUPAP) and the
Crown Land Management Sys-
tem (CLMS).
LUPAP seeks to identify
every parcel of land in New
Providence and Grand Bahama.
CLMS will create a digital
record of all Crown Land in the
country.
Experts from International
Lands Systems (ILS) are assist-
ing the Lands and Surveys
Department with the develop-


ment of CLMS.
Minister of Lands and Local
Government Sidney Collie
added that the government,
through a joint venture with
IDB, contracted ILS experts for
$3 million to conduct a Land
Use Policy Administration Pro-
ject and Parcel Information
Management System (PIMS).
Mr Turnquest said the sys-
tems will significantly improve
efficiency in terms of Crown
Land grants, land registration,
and other property-related mat-
ters.
However, the director
stressed that there is a great


demand for trained, technically-
skilled persons at his depart-
ment.
"There is a dire need for
skilled resources for people
to study the technical aspects
involving land surveying, estate
management, and forestry." He
said it is important for young
people to consider careers in
these fields.
"If we begin to employ peo-
ple from elsewhere to do these
jobs, Bahamians will be the first
to have a problem with it. We
need to get serious about land
surveying and training persons
in those areas because the sys-
tem cannot operate unless the
land is surveyed properly," he
said.
Mr Collie added: "The direc-
tor has sent out a call for young
Bahamians who do not see the
wisdom of getting in this busi-
ness. But I can tell you it's not
all real estate agents and
lawyers who do property/land
transactions. There is a lot of
opportunity for young Bahami-
ans who want to get into the
technical aspect of Lands and
Surveys."
Because the research is
incomplete, Mr Turnquest said,
it is difficult to say how many
acres of Crown Land there are
in Grand Bahama.


Home robberies believed connected


* By TANEKA THOMPSON
Tribune Staff Reporter
tthompson@tribunemedia.net
POLICE suspect that three
robberies t different homes yes-
terday morning are connected.
Police press liaison officer
Inspector Walter Evans issued a
warning to members of the pub-
lic to pay careful attention to
their surroundings at all times.
The armed robberies all took
place in eastern New Provi-
dence.
The first incident took place
at around 12.45am, when a man
who just arrived home from
work was approached by two
men armed with a shotgun.


The assailants reportedly
robbed him of cash, a cell phone
and a hand chain before flee-
ing in a red Honda Civic.
Shortly before 3am, two men
in a red Honda Civic robbed a
man trying to close his front
gate. The culprits took a wallet
containing cash.
Some time later, a husband
and wife were reportedly
robbed of cellular phones and a
pack of cigarettes by two men
who got out of a white vehicle
and ran over to them as they
were attempting to enter their
home. After the robbery, the
assailants sped off.
Mr Evans recommended peo-
ple make sure their home area


is well lit and free of hiding
spaces for criminals, and that
they can call someone at night
to help enter their home.
"When people (are travelling)
in the night hours, always look in
the rear-view mirror and if there
is anything you feel uncomfort-
able with, we are asking them
not to go to their residence,
(instead) call the police for fur-
ther help," Mr Evans added.
He also stated that the police
force will be increasing patrols
and performing a number of
"covert" operations to target
criminals.
Mr Evans said the public can
also help by implementing
neighbourhood crime watches.

raises censors


By ALISON LOWE
Tribune Staff Reporter
alowe@tribunemedia.net
THERE is a role for censor-
ship in this country but it should
not be to determine what
movies can and cannot, be
viewed by adults, according to
some members of the public.
CEO of Galleria Cinemas
Chris Mortimer, who is among
those who hold this opinion, sat
on a panel last Thursday at
COB to discuss the role of the
6 Bahamas Play and Films Con-
trol Board in society. The meet-
ing was called by the new board
chairperson Cheryl Cartwright.
Mr Mortimer and others in the
room suggested that the most seri-
ous problems which the Bahamas
faces murder, rape, violence -
have nothing to do with what is
shown in movie theatres.
"The problem is that we have
parents who do not play an
active role in the lives of their
kids," said the businessman,
who feels that censorship by
adults of what their children can
and cannot see is important -
and indeed, advisable.
Furthermore, he said that to
allow the Board to practise cen-
sorship in its most extreme form
is to 1'presume that one person
or group can make better deci-
sions for another group of
adults" adults who have been
deemed mature enough to vote,
for their own government.
However, Pastor Lyall Bethel
of Grace Community Church,
said that to allow certain movies
to be shown is essentially an
endorsement of their content
by Bahamian society.
Church elder Andy Knowles
said with any subject matter,
"the more you watch it the more
you are going to think it's okay".
The word "censorship" has
problematic and negative con-
notations, said Pastor Bethel.
He suggested that the board's
work should be thought of more
as the "setting of standards".
Affirming his "unapologetic
support"' for the work of the
board, .be aded: ""Standarads
he .., to im higher, t6 strive
f, ence .', ,- -
He claimed that the board's
actions do not qualify as "true
censorship" as this would entail
the "total repression" of some-
thing. With Bahamians still free
to purchase any films to view
in their own homes, this is not
what is occurring, he said.
The religious leader charged
that the standards which must
be set and upheld by the board
should be based upon Christ-
ian values, as the preamble to
the constitution designates this
country as a "Christian nation".
Erin Greene, spokesperson for
the gay rights group the Rainbow
Alliance said it was hypocritical of
the board to ban Brokeback
Mountain a movie about a "love
affair between two men" in the
words of COB professor and pan-
elist Michael Stevenson but reg-
ularly approve movies with
extremely violent content.
"Let's focus our energies on
where they need to be focused,"
said Ms Greene.
The board is made up of 40
persons and falls under the Min-
istry of National Security. It
therefore turns :to the minister
of national security currently
Tommy Turnquest for the res-
olution of disputes over what
censorship is and is not justifi-
able in a democratic society.
According to Lester Mor-
timer, an attorney with law firm
Callenders and Co, there are
several reasons why Bahamians
should have cause for concern
about the workings of the board.
A "very wide power" given


to the minister to "censor plays
and films without any refer-
ence" to what restrictions on
freedom are permissible in the
constitution is one such reason,
he suggested.
For example, while the con-
stitution permits infringements
of freedom for reasons of "pub-
lic safety, public order or public
morality" the act which man-
dates the board adds that films
can be censored if they are con-
trary to "public morality or the
public interest."
Mr Mortimer presented evi-
dence from numerous historic
rulings on freedom of expres-
sion, to the overall effect that
for the greater good, one must
err on the side of freedom of
expression rather than censor-
ship in a democratic society.
To allow adults to make up
their own mind about what they
see in the movie theatre, for
example, helps them to attain
"self fulfillment", assists in the
"discovery of truth", strength-
ens their decision-making capac-
ity, and helps societies adapt to
change, one ruling claimed.
However Pastor Bethel said
that the board's function is not
to limit the "personal freedom"
of persons interested in seeing
such films, but rather is focused
on the protection of the "public
good".
He said that to allow "unlim-
ited personal freedoms", such
as the.right to view certain films,
would allow a few'to detrimen-
tally infringe on the rights of
others in society.
COB associate professor
Michael Stevenson, who con-
demned what he described as
the board's "unconstitutional"
decision to ban films, spoke in
favour of the need for "deep
dialogue and conversation" on
matters such as the censorship
of films or plays.
To allow more persons to
engage in debate about the
issue would foster "mutual
understanding and ultimately
the formation of consensus."


He said that public knowledge
of the board's decisions on which
films are censored and why has
traditionally been restricted in
this country by "powerful reli-
gious interests ... that choose to
govern questions of morality
from afar and in the dark and
whom the government chooses
not to subject to the scrutiny of
democratic dialogue."
Having been "robbed of the
chance to engage in democratic
dialogue about morality" per-
sons become less understand-

mately more prone to harming
those around them, he said.
According to Mr Stevenson,
"Brokeback Mountain is not the
only critically acclaimed movie
to have been shut away from
the eyes of the Bahamian".
City of God, a movie which
won numerous accolades, also
faced the axe at their hands.
Board chairwoman Cheryl
Cartwright told those gathered
that she sees the board's work
as a necessary form of "public
service", pointing out that none
of those on the board are paid
for the time they put into it.
Whether Bahamians want to
"see what we would like to see
or who we are" is an issue that
the board has to take into con-
sideration, she suggested.
The 40 board members have
held their positions for two and
a half months.

British American Financial Breast Cancer Tip
A mastectomy'is no small matter. The surgical removal of a breast can be frightening, and B tr3 abb~t feelings of
Sanger, frustration,. ahd loss for the woman who undergoes this procedure. Some women struggle with feelings of
being unattractive once the procedure is done. Clothes might not fit the same as before and the shock of waking
up "breast-less" after surgery can be as heartbreaking as the breast cancer diagnosis itself.


You can survive breast cancer. Early detection through regular breast self-exams and a regular program of
mammogram and physical exams are crucial steps that every woman should employ.

THE TRIBUNE


A challenge to the African






Diaspora in the Bahamas


* By Arthur Foulkes
(The article printed below is
from a speech by Sir Arthur
Foulkes in Gambier Village on
the occasion of the Gambier
Homecoming Festival in
August)


T hank you for inviting
me to this opening cer-
emony of the annual Home-
coming Festival on Gambier
Day and for the opportunity to
share some thoughts with you.
- I have lived many places in
the Bahamas from Inagua to
Andros .from Chippingham to
Hawkins Hill, and places in
between but for most of the
time my family and I have been
living right here in the Gam-
bier neighbourhood.
I cannot lay claim to a con-
nection with the founding
fathers of this Village. The boat
that brought my African ances-
tors landed somewhere else.
But I can claim to be a resident
and a neighbour for nearly 40
years.
And so I am proud to see the
flowering of awareness and the
determined efforts to take hold
of, to conserve, and to celebrate


our cultural and historical her-
itage here in Gambier. I con-
gratulate all who were instru-
mental in getting this Festival
on to our national calendar,
especially Mr Neville Wisdom.
What we are about is a cele-
bration of our culture, and I
should like to recall the words
of two men who were 19th cen-
tury contemporaries.
"Human culture is the art of
revealing to a man the true idea
of his being, his endowment, his
possessions, and of fitting him
to use these for the growth,
renewal, and perfection of his
spirit. It is the art of completing
a man."
Those words were written by
Bronson Alcott; and this is what
Thomas Carlyle said:
"The great law of culture is,
let each become all that he was
created capable of being;
expand, if possible, to his full
growth; resisting all impedi-
ments, casting all foreign, espe-
cially all noxious adhesions..."
Every branch of human cul-
ture is influenced and shaped
by many elements including
geography, climate and histo-
ry. I say branch advisedly
because all human culture is
shaped by another powerful

element, and that is the human
spirit, the essence that is shared
by all humankind, the thing
which gives meaning to the
words: We are one.
So any particular culture is a
variation of a broader human
culture just as there are varia-
tions on a musical theme. We
all recognize the grand theme
when we see it and we are fas-
cinated by the multitude of vari-
ations of which it is capable.
When we hear a form of
Asian music, for instance, we
recognize it as music. The same
when we hear African music,
or Middle Eastern music or
European music, or our own
Caribbean music.
We want to appreciate and
enjoy them all. So I do not
entirely agree with Thomas
Carlyle about casting foreign
influences. But we must cer-
tainly be wary of what he calls
the noxious adhesions, the ones
that poison the best that is in
us, that tend to disfigure the
best that we are

Iam talking about the
influences that encourage
us to poison our bodies with
drugs, to exchange our tradi-
tional Bahamian manners for
the crude behavior and the


language of the American
hood, to exchange the beauty
that we are capable of creating
for sheer ugliness, to reinforce
the self-hatred that the slave
master used to control the slave.
So while we appreciate all
that the world and human his-
tory has to offer that is posi-
tive, we must reject the negative
- and every culture has its neg-
atives. And we must also be
honest and determined to deal
with the negative aspects of our
own culture
We must root out ugly home-
grown habits before we come
to accept them as a necessary
part of Bahamian culture. They
are not. They are nothing but
weeds.
We are fortunate inasmuch
as our Bahamian culture has
benefited from the rest of the
world. For instance, some of
the chords in our theme speak
of the European experience in
political and economic devel-
opment.
But we are ever-conscious of
the powerful influence of our
African heritage and the some-
times overwhelming and con-
fusing history of slavery.
The founders of Gambier
Village were not slaves in this
community, but like tens of
thousands before them, they

were in shackles for the long
and tortuous Middle Passage
journey. They were part of a
society that was largely con-
structed around slavery and dis-
figured by it.
That experience can no more
be eliminated from our psyche
and consciousness than the ter-
rible experiences of other peo-
ples that continue to influence
their outlook and their destiny.
And why is that so? Simply
because we are human.

he Jews are a good
example. But one dif-
ference between the Jews and
us, at least in most of Western
society today, is that there is a
strong movement to exorcise
all the demons of anti-Semitism
- in language and in art. Some
go so far as to advocate making
the denial of the Holocaust a
crime. -
By contrast, many of the
roots of prejudice against
Africans.and their descendants
in the West are still very much
in place. You are familiar with
some the language used even
by people who regard them-
selves as liberal -expressions
such as "black-on-black vio-
lence".
Did-you ever -hear-anyone
talk about on white-on-white
violence? And do you wonder
why it never occurs to them to
examine the reason for this?
Then there is the persistent
stereotyping, as if all African
Americans, for instance, think
or act alike, or see themselves in
precisely the same way, or use
the same language as the crim-
inals and pimps in the hood.
During the controversy over
the Don Imus insult to some
very fine African American
women, there were those who
were all too ready to blame the
rap artists instead of the racist
culprit. They even blamed the
overt racism of a German sol-
dier on the rappers! ,, :
The one that irritates me
most is the assertion by so
many, including some so-called
conservative intellectuals (black
and white)-that disadvantaged -
African Americans are to'
blame for their state because
other people hiaive survived slav-
ery and are doing just fine.

The truth is that no oth-
er people in the history
of humankind have suffered
anything like the Middle Pas-
sage slave trade and the
enslavement of black Africans
in the Americas.
It was, in its totality, unprece-
dented.
It was unprecedented in that
it was based on race.
It was unprecedented in its
intensity, in its brutality and in
its duration.
It was unprecedented in that
Sthe slaves were cut off from
their land and from their kin-
folk, from their language, from
their culture and from their reli-
gion.
It was unprecedented in that
for generations they were not
only treated as inferior but sys-
tematically. subjected to brain-
washing to make them believe
that they were inferior.
Never before nor since has a
race of people been subjected
to such a sustained onslaught
of misery, terror and dehuman-
isation as Africans in the New
World. And much of it contin-
ued after slavery."
What is remarkable, there-
fore, is not that many of them
act as if they have been trau-
matised; after all, they are only
human. What is remarkable is
that they have survived at all.
This brings me to the message I
should like to leave with you.

P people of African
descent must, like the
Jews, demand at least an
acknowledgment of the injus-
tice inflicted upon them..But,


more importantly, they must
celebrate the fact that as a race
they survived their prolonged
holocaust.
Some of the descendants of
black Africans in the New
World in America, in South
America, in the Caribbean, and.
in The Bahamas still wallow in
self-pity and make excuses for
their failures.
It is time to stop that. Many
of our forebears rose above that
-- and they were far worse off
than any of us. They had higher
mountains to climb and wider
rivers to cross. But they
climbed, and they crossed, and
they left us a goodly heritage.
The slaves suffered great
indignities, but the great shame
of slavery is neither for them
nor for us to bear. The shame
belongs entirely to the slave
masters, and to those who
would attempt to sanitise this
awful history.
The people who survived the
worst that the world could
inflict, the people who estab-
lished the Village of Gambier
.and Fox Hill and Adelaide and
Carmichael our African ances-
tors were neither cowards nor
quitters. If they were, we would
not have been here.
There was nothing inferior
about them. They were a most
remarkable people, a coura-
geous race, physically and psy-
chologically powerful; and the
wellsprings of their spirituality
ran deep.
They knew that it was impor-
tant for them to nurture the
next generation, to establish
communities so that they in
turn could survive -even in a
hostile environment.
Do we have any idea of the
difficulties they had to over-
come? Of the courage and
determination they had to sum-
mon up?


S his precious legacy, this
P atrimony,-
tance is now ours. It isTorus
to pass it on to future genera-
tions, to remind them of the
courage and sacrifice of our
noble ancestors.
We must teach our young
people pride in their heritage,
and inspire them to build on
what our forebears established,
not to destroy it with excessive
use of alcohol and drugs, and
crime, and bad manners, and
slothfulness, and disrespect.
We must teach them to
become all that they were cre-
ated capable of being, to
expand to their fill growth, to
overcome all the obstacles, to
resist all the noxious adhe-
sions.
We must teach our young
men and women how to respect
each other, how to honour their
elders, and how to uphold the
dignity and the rights of oth-
ers.
We must teach them that the
art of completing a man is not
about how much weed they can
smoke, not about how much
bad language they can spout,
but about assuming responsi-
bility, and conducting them-
selves with dignity as their fore-
bears did.
We must teach them to get
in touch with the wellsprings
that made Gambier Village pos-
sible. We must teach them that
it is not smart, not Bahamian, to
adopt the vulgar language and
behaviour of some in the Amer-
ican hood.
The success of the nation
depends upon the success of
Gambier Village and other vil-
lages, towns and communities
throughout these islands. The
nation begins right here. If we
allow our communities and our
families to go to hell, the nation
will certainly follow.
But if we honour our ances-
tors, treasure our cultural and
historical heritage, and build
strong communities, strong
families, then there will be no
limit to what we can achieve as
a people.

Bahamas Culture Day


celebrated in New York


BAHAMIAN exiles in
New York have been cele-
brating one of their best sum-
mer cultural programmes
ever.
The Bahamian American
Cultural Society concluded its
schedule on a high note with
its annual Bahamas Culture
Day last month.
And members have vowed
to make the event even better
in years to come.
"The confidence and deter-
mination of the society's
members and ardent friends
were undaunted," said mem-
ber Beryl Edgecombe.
The Culture Day was truly
representative of the society's
mission to expose Bahamian
culture in the interest of peace
and maintaining a strong
bridge between Bahamian-
Americans and their home-
land.
Relaxing with Bahamian
music by Ronnie Butler, KB,,
Elon Moxey and others, and
watching the full moon over
the East River separating
Brooklyn from Manhattan, a
senior Bahamian who has
been in New York for over
50 years smiled and said:
"This reminds me of days
long ago sitting by the beach
in The Bahamas, longing to
go to New York."
A young man in his early
twenties, with a Goombay
punch in his hand, said: "l
was born here.
"I don't know
much


about The Bahamas. How can
I join your group and know
more?"
Three other major events
of BACS this summer were
participation in the African
American Day Parade in Sep-
tember; the International Cul-
tures Expo-Fest and Parade
in June and the provision of
an information and culture
booth during The West Indian
American Carnival on Sep-
tember 4.
In the African American
Day Parade, BACS joined
university bands, union floats
and political personalities in
honouring black heritage and
heroes. An automobile dec-
orated with the Bahamian
colours and flag, pumping out
Junkanoo music, was preced-
ed by two persons carrying
the BACS emblem.
Following were partici-
pants wearing T-shirts bf
aquamarine, yellow and black,
each emblazoned with
"Junkanoo" on the front and
"Bahamas" on the back.
BACS's presentation was
well received along the 30-
block route. People were
moving to the Junkanoo beat,
clapping their hands, and
cheering loudly.
As BACS's cultural cara-
van.danced along 125 Street
near the Adam Clayton Pow-
ell State Building, Radio Sta-
tion WBLS praised BACS for
its presentation and
representation of


The Bahamas culture.
The announcer zeroed in
on The Junkanoo Expres-
sions, and highlighted The
Bahamas as a most preferred
tourist resort.
This successful event was
foreshadowed by BACS's
active participation in the
planning and presentation of
the International Cultural
Festival, held earlier in June.
As a member of the Inter-
national Immigrants Founda-
tion International Cultures
Mission United Nations,
BACS joined other nations.
from Asia, Caribbean,.
Europe and Latin American
in parades along the Avenue
of The Americas, manned a
cultural booth, and present-
ed on stage. The theme was,
"Beautiful Bahamas .... We
make peace not war."
On September 4, US
Labour Day, BACS provid-
ed an information booth
about the societyand to show-
case samples of Bahamas cul-
ture, especially in food. An
estimated 1,500-2,000 people
stopped and made inquiries
about The Bahamas, the soci-
ety and aspects of Bahamas
culture.

THE Ministry of National
Security, in a statement issued
yesterday, said that for the
"most part, the assertions"
made by the family of Fox Hill
inmate Trent Albury of Abaco
and published in The Tribune
on Monday, October 8, "can-
not be supported by facts."
Those assertions were
reported in the Insight feature
by Tribune Managing Editor
John Marquis headed, "Hor-
ror Story Without End Pris-
oner believes death is the only
escape from the hell of Fox,
Hill Prison."
"Contrary to the article,"
said the Ministry's statement,
"there is no reference in any

Annual Reports in 'recent
times that describes Her
Majesty's Prison as 'one of the
worst jails in the western
hemisphere.' Also, Amnesty
International has not visited
Her Majesty's Prison in many
years.
"According to medical
authorities at the Prison, Mr
Albury does not have a heart
condition, nor is there any evi-.
dence of collapsed lungs or
bleeding ulcers.

tion of withholding proper

the Prison (along with a visit-
ing psychiatrist and a dentist).
Mr Albury is regularly seen
by the psychiatrist and he is
seen by the prison physician
as he requests," said the Min-
istry.
"With regard to medication,
Mr Albury is given medication
as prescribed by both the psy-
chiatrist and prison physician,
and receives medication for all
known ailments on a daily
basis. He was being treated for
depression prior to his incar-
ceration at Her Majesty's
Prison. His broken eyeglasses
have been repaired and
returned to lim.
"As a remanded inmate, Mr
Albury receives cooked food
from relatives on a daily basis
and he is allowed a change of
clothing and bedding from rel-
atives every Tuesday.
"With respect to the so-called
piece of rope that an inmate
once used to hang himself and
which now supposedly dangles
from the ceiling of Mr
Albury's cell, this claim is
baseless. There is not now nor
has there been a piece of rope
dangling from the ceiling of
Mr Albury's cell, nor at any
time has Mr Albury been
housed in a cell or a block
within which an inmate com-
mitted suicide.
"While there are many chal-
lenges facing Her Majesty's
Prison, it is clear to the most
cursory observer that there is a
heightened regard for human
rights. This is best illustrated
by the total absence of gangs;
the rarity of fights; the scarci-
ty of escapes; the infrequency
of hunger strikes and suicide
attempts; and the overall
atmosphere of humaneness,
orderliness, containment and
control. Growth and rehabili-
tation opportunities now char-
acterise Her Majesty's Prison,"
said the Ministry of National
Security.

Tribune and Guardian -



'bucking the trends'


THE Tribune and Nassau Guardian are buck-
ing the trends. Tribune circulation continues to
rise steadily and is now consistently very close to
20,000 copies on Thursday, its biggest sales day Of
the week.
The Nassau Guardian is also standing firm on
the best-selling day of the week, reinforcing The
Tribune's and Guardian's positions as market
leaders.
"No other newspapers come close to the
unmatched paid circulation that these two vibrant
titles give an advertiser," said Mr Tony Ferguson,
President of the Nassau Guardian.
"Monday and Thursday have always been the
strongest sales days, but The Tribune's circulation
is now consistently hitting new heights," added Mr
Robert Carron, Chief Operating Officer of The
Nassau Guardian and The Tribune.


"We are very pleased that the Nassau
Guardian circulation has also rebounded
nicely,
"Its dedicated staff, new team, unique design
and team of journalists now headed by Ms Erica
Wells and our President Mr Tony Ferguson have
reinvigorated the product," he added.
"I am also very proud of our wonderful fami-
ly at The Tribune headed by Mr John Marquis
and the job they do each and every day in deliv-
ering the news to the Bahamian public," said Mr
Carron.
"The Tribune's continuing success is down to
the commitment and ability of our staff across the
board, excellent editorial quality, coverage of
issues that Bahamians find important to then,
and an excellent distribution system," said Mr
Paco Nunez, The Tribune's news editor.


Local writers have their voices heard


THE Tribune /College of
the Bahamas Partnership for
Literacy combined with the
National Art Gallery of the
Bahamas to present two very
successful nights of readings
by local writers.
The evenings were organ-
ised as part of the partner-
ship's contribution to Inter-

More than 60 hired



below minimum wage



for government staff


FROM page one

in length from one to six
months for a period between
January .2 and June 30, 2007.
Additionally, the prime min-
ister said that 32 people were
engaged in the former ministry
of local government and con-
sumer affairs for a period from
January 1st to May 10th of this
year.
"I find it interesting, Mr
Speaker, two letters of appoint-
ment on three month contrac-
tual terms issued on two sepa-
rate individuals were issued
'under first sight' of the admin-
istrator at Nicholls Town,
Andros, notwithstanding their
engagement to provide sevict
at Cabbage Hill Primary
School. I am not aware of any
school by that' hain' in
Andros," Mr Ingrahani said.
Of this group of temporary
workers whose, names'and
salaries were"' tabled-
, most were employed at a
salary of $700 per month and
two at $800 per month, which
the prime minister emphasized,
was beneath the.$890 minimum
wage "paid by the public ser-
vice."
The prime minister also
tabled the letters of appoint-
ment for the workers verifying
the time frame of the contracts
issued by the former govern-
ment. He noted that 27 of the
contract workers in ,the
MICAL constituency were
assigned to work in the admin-
istrator's office.
Despite the evidence pre-
sented by the prime minister,
Mr Gray maintained that Mrs
Ingraham was victimised, stat-
ing that she was hired "with
the intention to become per-
manent".
The prime minister chal-
lenged the veracity of this
statement by Mr Gray citing
the letters of appointment for
Mrs Ingraham. On the Febru-


ary 2nd a letter employed her
for four months from January
1st, while a. superseding letter
was issued onr March 7th
extending this period for two
months,
With twoo. letters, only
employing Mrs 'Ingraham for a
few months, the prime minister
said "the question of intention
of taking her on permanently,
is very clear."
SExplaining the short term
contracts issued by the PLP,
Mr Gray responded that the
financial state of Morton Salt
earlier this year, led him to
seek cabinet approval "during
the month of March or there-
abouts" to spend $50,000 in
order to assist the people of
:the constituency.
The prime minister too:chal-
lenged the veracity of this claim
Sby Mr Gray.'
"That approach was ddne in
January 2007, not March," he
-: said. . .
SMr Gray emphasized that he
said in March or thereabouts
,and claimed that he used the
Smney at.fiis'discretion "to
assist as many people that I
could have."
"The basis upon which he
got the $50,000 from the cabi-
net was not about Morton," Mr
Ingraham declared.
"I did not say it was about
Morton," Mr Gray responded.
"What I said was, when Mor-
ton laid off temporarily some
people in March or there-
abouts, I used part 6f that mon-
ey (the $50,000) to assist.those .
people.'That's what I said," Mr
Gray added.
Mr Gray also denied that 27
workers were stationed in the
administrator's office in
Inagua.
"Mister Speaker, I can assure
you that those people did not
work at the administrator's
office, they worked all over
Inagua" he said, informing the
House that the administrator
was to assign duties.to'the


workers in question.
"I do not want the prime
minister or any of his ministers
to minimise the importance
which I attach then, and I
attach now to assisting the peo-
ple of the MICAL constituen-
cy," Mr Gray emphasized..
The MICAL MP did not
back down yesterday from the
heavy assault by the prime
minister, which raised signifi-
cant questions.about the short
term contracts in question.

Gray said. "If that is wrong, I'

have a chance, I'll do it again.
I'll do it again!"

Cuba says embargo



cost country dearly


IN a one year period between
2006 and 2007, the Cuban food
sector lost $258 million as a
result of the American embar-
go. according to the government
of Cuba.
A new report by Cuban offi-
cials says the country's trans-
port sector lost $208.8 million
in the same period, while the
cultural sector suffered a
$20,365,000 blow.
The damage to the national
health service was estimated at
$30 million.
The report has been released
in the run-up to what has become
an annual exercise in the UN -
the vote on whether the US
should end its embargo on Cuba.
At the end of this month, the
Bahamas will be asked to vote
in the UN on whether the
embargo in place since 1962 -
should continue.
This will follow a submission
of a draft resolution entitled
"Necessity of ending the eco-
nomic, commercial and financial
embargo imposed by the United
States of America against Cuba"
for the consideration of the UN
General Assembly on Tuesday
October. 30.
It will be the 16th year in
which members states have
been asked to vote on the reso-
lution. Last year, 183 member
states out of a total of 191 voted
to end the embargo.
In'the last year, the embargo -


labelled an "economic war" by
the Cuban government has
been intensified, "despite the
express wishes of the international
community," the report said.
The report said the blockade
has had negative repercussions
on every aspect of life from
the food Cubans eat, to public
health, to education, to trans-
port and-culture and equally;
on the opportunities for Amer-
ican citizens and the rest of the
world to benefit from Cuba's
offerings in these areas.
The extraterritorial effects of
the embargo have ,been
increased, making it harder for
Cuba to trade with at least 30
other countries that it has tra-
ditionally turned to for prod-
ucts it is not allowed to pur-
chase in'the US.
"Extraterritorality has been'


taken to such an extreme that
Cuban citizens living abroad
have been obliged to close their
bank accounts, or risk having
them cancelled, at local banks
that have been taken over by
American banks or have some
kind of affiliation with the lat-
ter," the report said.
Sanctions have stopped
Cubans from travelling to acade-
mic and medical conferences they
have been invited to in the US
and the same has been the case
for Americans invited to Cuba.
A growing number of fines
imposed on Americans who
travel to Cuba by their own
government has caused the
number of American visits to
Cuba to drop by 48,000 in the
last four years, said the report.
The Cuban healthcare sys-
tem, hailed as a model by many,
and the transport sector, have
taken a significant blow it said.
Medical equipment and phar-
maceuticals, along with mechan-
ical components, only available
in the US are simply not obtain-
able, to the detriment of the
Cuban public's health and the
economy. Where it is available
elsewhere, it will cost more to
buy and import, noted the report.
Cuba contends that Wash-
ington's policy is ultimately
intended to "deprive the Cuban
people of its sovereignty and of
the exercise of its right to self
determination."


Embargo tightening 'limits medicines'


THE Cuban government says
that as a result of the recent
tightening of the American
embargo, an inhalatory anaes-'
thetic used to prepare children
for surgery cannot be obtained.
A new report says this has
caused doctors to have to use
inferior substitutes that are ulti-
mately more costly.
This is just one of many
examples in the report of how
the embargo has affected life
for the Cubfani populationn;
Even attempts to purchase-
medical equipment from Japan
has been blocked as more than
10 per cent of a particular


device's components were man-
ufactured in the US, it noted.
It said intensified sanctions
have also limited the number.
of websites and services Cubans
can access online, impacting
education.
Google Earth and certain anti-
virus software updates are not
available to Cubans and the
website tells them: "This product
is not available in you? country."
Supplies which would support
educationalInpr6gflamriMes 'are i
-denied- to the-country by- the-J
embargo, impeding the "most
basic academic and educational
freedoms" of its people, said


the report.
Culturally, the ability of
Cubans to perform abroad and
for Americans to visit Cuba to
enjoy its traditions has also been
diminished.
In 2006, not a single Cuban
band was allowed to perform
in the US on the grounds that it
was against US interests.
Cuban artists were stopped
from attending the Grammy
awards to which they were invit-
ed h.>.')T;N.!iJ0 bl 'i f!:r ; 1 ,: ;,L','-w i
- Sales' of-'Catran books iii the'
last year have suffered to the
tune of $100,000, and cultural.
exchanges have been diminished.

desires."
When asked to respond to the
claims made by Knowles that,,
the former administration may
have acted inappropriately and'
was "deceived" by US authori-',
ties, Mr Symonette said that the
paperwork indicated that due'
diligence was performed.
"The (extradition) files indi-
cate that the appropriate pro-
cedure was followed, (howev-I
er) the question to be asked is,11
should he have been extradited.

(before the courts)?"
Previous reports indicate that
during the process of Knowles'
extradition in August, 2006 he '
had an outstanding writ of;
habeas corpus filed with the 1
Bahamas Supreme Court.
Mr Symonette added that
Knowles had the right for his,,
case to be heard before the'.
Bahamian court system.
Attempts were made to con-;
tact Roger Minnis, Knowles'
Bahamian attorney, on'the sta-!,
tus of a formal application, but
up to press time he could not,;
be reached for comment.

Mr Fergiison also advised
that he has personally helped't
some of the residents to find at'
least two lawyers who can assist
them in whatever legal endeav-
our they might pursue.
In her petition, Mrs Maynard-
Gibson alleges that 266 persons,
who voted in the Pinewood con-'
stituency were either not eligi-
ble to vote, or not residents of
the constituency for six months
prior to the election as
required by law.
Since then, the election court
has rejected an application by
Mrs Maynard-Gibson to amend
her petition and ordered her to
pay the legal costs of her polit-
ical opponent, FNM Minister
of State for Youth and Sports
Mr Byran Woodside.
The election challenge is set
to begin on Monday, October'i
15.

between his two front teeth,
and a scar on his right arm.
Knowles, born in Nassau, has
no distinguishable features list-
ed, but is said to be wanted
for "drug related crimes and
drug related crimes conspira-
cy", while Mais, born in
Freeport, is wanted for ques-
tioning in connection with
"crimes against life and
health" and theft.
Nationals of the Domini-
can Republic feature most
prominently on the organi-

page, with 27 people,
including four women.
Jamaica has nine wanted
nationals, including two
women and Guyana, three,
while Haiti and Cuba each
have one fugitive on the. -*
list. .
According to Interpol,
the apprehension of fugi-
tives is "one of the most
important fields of activity
of the global law enforce-
ment community". ; ,.
"Fugitives undermine the';
world's criminal justice sys-
tems. They may have been
charged with a violation of
the law but not been arrest-
ed; they may have been
released on bail and then
fled to avoid prosecution
or, perhaps, they have
escaped from prison.
"When fugitives flee.
from their charges cases
are not adjudicated, con-
victed criminals fail to
meet their obligations, and
crime victims are denied
justice. If fugitives are not
pursued by means of an
aggressive investigation to
locate them, it sends a sub-
tle message to others that
fleeing from the law or fail-
ing to comply with the law
is somehow acceptable,"
said the organisation.

to contact their local

Athletes'


school visits inspire


students and team members


SCHOOL visits by the
award-winning athletes of
Team Bahamas are more
than just an effort to put the
champions on display,
according to Minister of
State for Youth and Sports
Byran Woodside.
"It is so important in our
nation to expose our children
to Team Bahamas as we cel-
ebrate champions in this
National Youth Month," Mr
Woodside said. "It is impor-
tant for them to identify with
Team Bahamas and have
that sense of pride that we
all do throughout this coun-
try.
"It is an opportunity to
instil pride in the young peo-
ple of this country and I
could find no better group
of persons to do that than
Team Bahamas."
Team Bahamas member
and International Associa-
tion of Athletics Federations
(IAAF) silver medalist Chris
Brown said that it is "a joy
and a pleasure" to visit with
students.
"It makes the whole team
and me feel proud to know
that we could come back and
give something back to the
community and the little fans
and the big fans; so it feels
pretty good to come home
and show them love and they
show us love," he said.
Team Bahamas member
Andrae Williams, who was
also an IAAF silver medalist,
added that way the students
react to seeing them makes
him feel good inside.
"It's just something good,
going around and encourag-
ing the students to stay
focused," he said. "They
could be right where we are,
too so, it is something pos-
itive."
Carifta Games silver
medalist and St John's stu-
dent Wayne Cleare said he
S. as "ove-rjoyed" to have
Team Bahamas at his school
and appreciated what effect
their visit will have on the
students.
"With all the negative
things out there for young
people to get into, to have
these people come to our
school and make a positive
impact, it makes me happy,"
he said.
Another St John's College
student athlete, 400-metre
runner Matthew Beckles,
said that itwas great seeing

person.
"As a runner myself, it
really encourages me to
believe that I could make it
and, one day, come back
here to St John's," he said.
"It makes me feel'like I
could do it."
Chris Brown added that he
feels proud that the team's
accomplishments could
inspire and encourage young
male athletes because of his
own personal journey.
"For me, it was a struggle,
from day one, and I am still
striving," he said. "I look out
there and say, 'If I could do
it, anybody else could d& it'."
Bahamas track and field
coach and deputy director of
sports Frank "Pancho" Rah-
ming said: "These students
have dreams and aspirations
and if they look at our ath-
letes, they will realise that
all these athletes had dreams
and aspirations and they
worked hard enough and
they achieved what they
worked hard for.
"It's good for the athletes
themselves to speak to the
youngsters and let them
know that it is not all guns
and knives and being
rogues," he added. "It's
more about striving for
something positive, that's
really what it is."
Chris Brown said: "I just
want to tell our youth, male
or female, but especially to
the young men, to never give
up and always choose the
positive road in life because
you never know where it's
going to take you.

mates on the tarmac as they
exited a Bahamasair aircraft
around 7.50am. They were
then greeted by a receiving
line consisting of high profile
government officials.
A large number of persons,
including the athletes' family
members, were on hand at the
airport for the group's arrival
at the Domestic Terminal,
where a brief welcome cere-
mony was held.
Thomas embraced his moth-
er, Pamela Thomas, who was
waiting with other relatives in
a special seating area on the
tarmac.
Minister of State for Sports
Byron Woodside praised all
of the athletes for their out-
standing performances, which
placed the Bahamas ninth in
the world, among the top 10
of 200 countries that compet-
ed in the World Games in
Osaka, Japan.
The five athletes here on
Grand Bahama Andre
Williams, Nivea Smith, Jacoby
Mitchell, Michael Mathieu,
and Donald Thomas were
specially singled out by Min-


ister Woodside.
"Grand Bahama, you have
so much to be proud of; you
have to be proud of Jacoby
Mitchell, Andre Williams,
Michael Mathieu, Nivea
Smith, and very proud of
Donald Thomas," he said.
Calling Thomas to the podi-
um, Mr Woodside noted that
the Bahamas is extremely
proud of the high jumper.
Thomas cleared 2.35 metres
to capture the gold at the 11th
IAAF World Championship
in Japan, in September.
He is the second Bahamian
to win a world title in the
men's high jump.
"The Bahamas is proud of
this young man a basketball
player now a high jumper.
And not only that, he is on
the top of the world today,"
said Mr Woodside.
"We are proud of all them.
It is no light feat when you
consider a nation such as ours
of some 300,000 persons going
up against countries like
Canada, Cuba, the People's
Republic of China, and
Japan."

German Gerhard Ertl wins ...
T1" _, /-"'' I ER WILHEL'm4
JSTIT 7 Fr r

Nobel chemistry prize for "YSIKALICHE E
SUND FLEKTROCHEMI E

chemical reaction research ...


* STOCKHOLM, Sweden
GERHARD Ertl of Ger-
many won the 2007 Nobel
Prize in chemistry on Wednes-
day for studies of chemical
reactions on solid surfaces,
which are key to understand-
ing questions like how pollu-
tion eats away at the ozone
layer, according to Associated
Press.
Ertl's research laid the foun-
dation of modern surface
chemistry, which has helped
explain how fuel cells produce
energy without pollution, how
catalytic converters clean up
car exhaust and even why iron
rusts, the Royal Swedish Acad-
emy of Sciences said.
His work has paved the way
for development of cleaner
energy sources and will guide
the development of fuel cells,
said Astrid Graslund, secre-
tary of the Nobel Committee
for Chemistry.
Ertl, who won the prize on
his 71st birthday, told reporters
that it "is the best birthday
present that you can give to
somebody."
"I am speechless," Ertl told
The Associated Press from his


office in Berlin. "I was not
counting on this."
Ertl is an emeritus professor
at the Fritz Haber Institute of
the Max Planck Society in
Berlin. Planck and Haber were
themselves Nobel laureates,
winning the physics and chem-
istry prizes in 1918.
The academy said Ertl pro-
vided a detailed description of
how chemical reactions take
place on surfaces and studied
some of the most fundamen-
tal mysteries in that field.
Ertl showed how to obtain
reliable results in this difficult
area of research, and his find-
ings applied in both academic
studies and industrial
development, the academy
said.
"Surface chemistry can even
explain the destruction of the
ozone layer, as vital steps in
the reaction actually take place
on the surfaces of small crys-
tals of ice in the stratosphere,"
the award citation said.
Americans Mario R. Capec-
chi and Oliver Smithies, and
Briton Sir Martin J. Evans,
won the 2007 Nobel Prize in
medicine on Monday for
groundbreaking discoveries


that led to a powerful tech-
nique for manipulating mouse
genes.
On Tuesday, France's Albert
Fert and German Peter Gru-
enberg won the physics award
for discovering a phenomenon
that lets computers and digi-
tal music players store reams
of data on ever-shrinking hard
disks.
German Chancellor Angela
Merkel congratulated both
German winners.
"I am very happy that this
year we managed to get the
Nobel prizes in both disciplines
- physics and chemistry," she
said. "This is a special honor
for Germany's scientists."

Soyuz rocket


lifts off, carrying


US, Russian and


Malaysian on space ..


station mission


* BAIKONUR, Kazakhstan
A RUSSIAN rocket blasted off
from a launch facility in Kaza-
khstan on Wednesday, carrying
an American, a Russian and a
Malaysian to the international
space station, according to Asso-
ciated Press.
The Soyuz-FG rocket soared
into a darkening sky above the
Kazakh steppe.
Aboard were Peggy Whitson of


Beaconsfield, Iowa, who will be
the first woman to command the
space station, veteran Russian cos-
monaut Yuri Malenchenko, and
Dr. Sheikh Muszaphar Shukor,
the ninth Muslim in space but ihe
first from Malaysia. They will
arrive in two days.
The mission coincides with the
last days of Ramadan, the holy
month when Muslims fast from
dawn until sundown, but
Malaysian clerics decreed that


Sheikh Muszaphar will be excused
from fasting while in space.
His religion also requires that
he face Mecca for prayer a
direction that will change as the
spacecraft orbits the Earth but
clerics decided that the exact loca-
tion matters only for the begin-
ning of the prayer ritual.
Applause broke out among
space officials and other onlookers
at the launch site as the spacecraft
entered orbit. Sheikh Muszaphar's
parents watched the liftoff from
an observation area, praying and
in tears.
"I'm happy for my country, for
Russia, for the United States and
everybody," his father said.
Whitson and Malenchenko will
stay on as the station's new crew,
replacing cosmonauts Fyodor
Yurchikhin and Oleg Kotov, and
will be joined in October by U.S.
astronaut Daniel Tani, who is
arriving with the space shuttle Dis-
covery.
Tani will replace fellow Ameri-
can Clayton Anderson, who has
been at the station since June.
Sheikh Muszaphar, a 35-year-
old orthopedic surgeon, is to spend
about 10 days on the station, per-
forming experiments involving dis-
eases and the effects of micro-
gravity and space radiation on cells
and genes.
On Tuesday, he told reporters
that his trip will be an inspiration
for his southeast Asian nation as
well as to other Muslims all over
the world.
"It's a small step for me, but a
great leap for the Malaysian peo-
ple," he said, paraphrasing
Neil Armstrong's famous words
after the Apollo landing on the
moon.
The $25 million agreement for a
Malaysian astronaut to fly to space
was negotiated in 2003 along with
a $900 million deal for Malaysia to
buy 18 Russian fighter jets.


MALAYSIA'S FIRST cosmonaut Sheikh Muszaphar Shukor, top, Yury Malenchenko of Russia, bottom,
and Peggy Whitson of the United States, center, crew members of the 16th mission for the Interna-
tional Space Station, gesture just before the launch of Soyuz rocket at the Baikonur cosmodrome,
Kazakhstan, Wednesday, Oct 10, 2007. Whitson, who will be the first woman to command the station,
was handed a symbolic Kazakh whip to manage the crew.

Before bridge players learned to
fully appreciate the critical impor-
tance of the number 13, the play of
the hand involved a considerable
amount of guesswork. But now that
everyone is mathematically wiser,
the game is easier to play correctly.
Consider this deal from the 1951
world championship match between
Italy and the United States. The bid-
ding went as shown when the Italians
held the North-South cards, and West
(B.--Jay Becker, playing with John


Crawford) led the deuce of clubs.
Declarer followed low from
dummy, losing to East's king, where-
upon Crawford returned the king of
spades! This sensational play proved
to be a killer. Declarer now had to go
down one, losing three spade tricks, a
club and a diamond. At trick two,
Crawford had played the only card in
his hand that could defeat the con-
tract. Had he led any other spade,
declarer would have made four
notrump.
What inspired Crawford to play
the king of spades seemingly from
out of the blue? Actually, it was an
easy play; he had a sure thing going
for him regardless of who had the
queen of spades.
The clue that led to the spade
return came from both the bidding
and the opening lead. West's deuce-
of-clubs lead, indicating a four-card
suit, marked declarer with three
clubs. Furthermore, systemically,
South's bidding guaranteed five
hearts and four diamonds (or, possi-
bly, four hearts and five diamonds).
This left South with at most one
spade.
The king-of-spades return was
therefore sure to work out success-
fully regardless of South's actual
spade holding. That his singleton
spade happened to be the queen
served merely to dramatize the cor-
rectness ofCrawford's-play.

ARIES Mar 21/Apr 20
Feeling fizzled out, Aries? It could
be because you pushed yourself too
hard partying in the last few weeks.
Take the early part of this year to sit
back and relax.
TAURUS Apr 21/May 21
Something that seems insurmount-
able is actually much easier to
scale than you think, Taurus.
Think positively and you'll reach
great heights.
GEMINI May 22/Jun 21
Think before you speak when you're
called to intervene in a situation,
Gemini. Though you can offer
words of wisdom, let the other par-
ties do the compromising.
CANCER Jun 22/Jul 22
There is success coming your way, you
just need to keep your eyes peeled in
anticipation, Cancer. However, there
are two sides to every coin, and this
good news also brings some bad.
LEO Jul 23/Aug 23
You sometimes have to lose before
you can win, Leo, and this will
become apparent in the next few
days. Stay the course and you will
come out OK.
VIRGO Aug 24/Sept 22
If you have all the answers, Virgo,
why aren't people constantly asking
your advice? Realize that you can
learn a thing or two from someone
else, especially this week.
LIBRA Sept 23/Oct 23.
If you're in the mood for romance,
Libra, then you'll be justly rewarded.
Now is the time to spend quality time
with that special person in your life
because soon you'll be busier than ever.
SCORPIO Oct 24/Nov 22
Quiet comtemplation is the key this
week, Scorpio. Mull over all of
your problems and you'll soon find
that you have the solutions right at
your fingertips.
SAGITTARIUS Nov 23/Dec 21
Silence can be deafening, especially
when you're awaiting an outcome to
a sticky situation, Sagittarius. All
you can do is:be patient and trust that
things will work out.
CAPRICORN Dec 22/Jan 20
A financial folly leaves you coming up
short, Capricorn. It's time to buckle
down and stretch those dollars as far as
they can go. Otherwise, you could end
Sup in a pickle by mid year.
AQUARIUS Jan 21/Feb 18
SWhy wrestle with a concern alone
when you have loved ones you can
trust to assist you, Aquarius? Put
some of your worries in another per-
son's hands.
PISCES Feb 19/Mar20
You will find hidden meanings in
the most mundane things, Pisces.
The trouble will be figuring out
what the big message is.


White mates in seven moves at
latest, against any defence (by
Karol Piltz). Seven moves? What
is this guy expecting of me?
Calm down, dear solver. Today's
puzzle is much easier than most
shorter problems. Look carefully
at the diagram, and you will
spot a peculiarity. Black has only
one man, the a7 pawn, able to
make a legal move. Meanwhile,
White's fl rook looks very
distant from Black's a8 king, but
an offbeat and comical tactical
sequence secures the mate.
There is effectively just a single
line of play, as all Black's side
variations lead to faster and
obvious mates.

SECTION


Unions seek Standard




Work Hours reforms


M By NEIL HARTNELL
Tribune Business Editor
TRADE unions and the
labour movement are seeking
clarifications to the Standard
Hours of Work section in the
Employment Act, a 1L ,dii;i
unionist told The Tribune yes-
terday, believing the way the
law is currently worded creates
a "'nl"l 'I 'crpiLi.ilil'll" when it
comes to the hours worked by
managerial and supervisory staff
employed by Bahamian com-
panies.
Obie Ferguson, a labour
lawyer and the Trades Union
Congress (TUC) president, said
there were discrepancies
between Section 8, Part 2 and
Section 8, Subsection 4 of the
Employment Act that gave rise
to "misinterpretations" by
employers of how the Standard
Hours of Work applied to man-
agerial/supervisory employees.


* Want Act clarified to state managers/supervisors have
40-hour week, and get 'time off in lieu of pay' for excess
* TU.C president says lunch hour's inclusion in 40 hours,
ability to file unfair dismissal action for termination related to
conduct and performance key reforms sought
* Wants employer definition clarified to aid legal actions
against major companies


Mr Ferguson said Section 8,
Part 2 stated that no Bahamian
worker whether a manager or
line worker should work more
than 40 hours per week. Yet
Section 8, Subsection 4 was
being interpreted as :1, ing the
40-hour work week or Standard
Hours of Work "does not apply
to those who held superviso-


ry/managerial positions".
Mr Ferguson added: "The
employers are suggesting that the
40 hours does not apply to man-
agerial workers. They have to
work as many hours as necessary.
"This is not what Part 2 or
Section 8 is saying. Every work-
er is required to work 40 hours,
and the Act was intended to


exempt managerial and super-
visory workers from overtime
and overtime pay.
"That was the intention, but
some employers are reading it
as if it means the 40 hours do
not apply to managerial or
supervisory workers.

THE Industrial Tribunal
must be given the ability to
enforce its own judgments, a
trade union leader told The
Tribune yesterday, as "it
defeats the purpose" if workers
have to go to the Supreme
Court to obtain the fruits of


verdicts they have won against
employers.
Obie Ferguson, the Trades
Union Congress (TUC) presi-
dent, said: "We would like for
the Industrial Tribunal to
enforce its own judgments.
That's a very vexing area.
"If the Tribunal makes a find-
ing and the employer refuses to
pay, the worker is stymied and


has to got to the Supreme Court
to enforce the judgment. That
defeats the purpose."
Mr Fc I LIuson said the Indus-
trial Tribunal should be a court
of finality, with the right for par-
ties to appeal its verdicts all the
way up the court structure.
Currently, if employers
refused to abide by the Indus-
trial Tribunal's rulings, employ-


ees were faced with having to
file the same court papers and
documents with the Supreme
Court in a bid to have judg-
ments enforced a process that
adds time and costs for workers.
"You have to go to the
Supreme Court to get the judge-
ment enforced, and to me it
defeats the purpose," Mr Fer-
guson added.


Trade Commission's chair: 'Hard to escape'


conclusion Bahamas dropped EPA ball


BTC'


Cyber World


store set for


Bay Street


* By NEIL HARTNELL
Tribune Business Editor
THE Bahamas Telecom-
munications Company (BTC)
is hoping to set up its second
full-service Cyber World store
in the former Mike's Shoe
Store outlet on Bay Street by
year-end, the "flagship" outlet
targeting cruise passengers
and land-based tourists seek-
ing to 'roam' and use their cell
phones in the Bahamas.
Marlon Johnson, BTC's
vice-president of marketing
and sales, confirmed to The
Tribune yesterday that the
state-owned telecommunica-
tions provider was planning
to open the Bay Street Cyber
World store, the second full
Service one after the Mall at
Marathon, to serve Bahami-
ans who worked and
shopped in downtown Nas-
sau.
He said: "We're preparing
to establish a Cyber World
store in the former Mike's
Shoe Store. If you drive past,
you can see the BTC adver-
tisements in the windows.
"It will be our second full-
service Cyber World store
after the Mall at Marathon.
We hope to establish it before
the end of the year. This one
is intended to be our-flagship
store."
Mr Johnson said it would
feature a roaming deparimeni,
which would deal with any
issues experienced by
Bahamians when attempting
to use their cell phones
abroad, and problems experi-
enced by tourists and foreign
businessmen here.
The marketing depart-
ment would also have per-
sonnel at the Bay Street
store, Mr Johnson said, and
the BTC store would pro-
vide "a full range of ser-
vices" such as bill paying,
phone cards, cell phones and
SIM cards, and help with
technical inquiries.
When asked why BTC had
chosen Bay Street as the


* Move aims to
provide easy access
to roaming services
for cruise passengers
and tourists
* Opening could
revitalise retail area
East of Bay Street,
with Bristol Cellars
also said to be
planning Bacardi con-
cept store


"flagship" location, Mr John-
son said: "It's still very much
a commercial centre. There's
still quite a lot of commer-
cial activity and corporate
activity on Bay Street, so we
will have a lot of walk-in traf-
fic from persons who work
and shop in the downtown
Nassau area.
"Roaming traffic accounts
for quite a bit of BTC's rev-
enue streams, so we wanted
to have a venue close to
Prince George's Wharf where
cruise-based and land-based
tourists could have easy access
to BTC, have their questions
addressed, and provided with
full access to BTC's roaming
capabilities."

Location

Mr Johnson added: "Bay
Street is still a very critical
part of what happens com-
mercially in the country, and
in New Providence, so there
is keen interest in that part
of Bay Street becoming a
thriving commercial, retail
and cultural hub in New
Providence."

* By NEIL HARTNELL
Tribune Business Editor
THE Trade Commission's
chairman said yesterday that it
was "hard to escape the con-
clusion" that the Bahamas had
'dropped the ball' on the Eco-
nomic Partnership Agreement
(EPA) talks with the European
Union (EU), adding that there
was too little time to prepare
the private sector's position on
it with less-than three months
left before the treaty is due to
take effect,
John Delaney, the former
FNM Senator and Higgs &
Johnson managing partner, said
the Trade Commission's "big
priority" and the "bigger pic-
ture issue" was the Bahamas
move to accede to full mem-
bership in the World Trade
Organisation (WTO), although
the, EPA was the trade issue
with "the shortest fuse".
Mr Delaney said the WTO
was the ,inmllii denomina-
tor" that underpinned and over-
shadowed all trade agreements,
and he understood that the
Bahamas' accession to full
membership in the body that
sets and administers the rules
of global trade may happen
"within the next five years" -
before the FNM government's
term in office ends.
When asked whether the
Trade Commission had enough
time between now and Decem-
ber 31, 2007, when the EPA
between the EU and 77-menm-
ber African, Pacific and
Caribbean (ACP) group of
nations is supposed to take
effect, to prepare a position on
what the Bahamas should do
for the Government, Mr
Delaney replied: "I don't see
how it can be said we have a
reasonable period of lime
between now and the end of the

When asked whether the
Bahamas had 'dropped the ball'


WTO accession

may happen

'within next

five years'


on the EPA negotiations and
done too little, too late to adopt
a position and prepare for it,
Mr Delaney said: "That con-
clusion is hard to escape.........
, "We are where we are, a cou-
ple of months from the target
date for signing. We have to
acknowledge that the EPA is
not something that has been
sprung on the Bahamas. It
would have been on our plate
for many years, but the Trade
Commission only now has to
look at it. 1 am advised that no
work has been done on this by
any previous Trade Commis-
sion."

IF you find that starting a
business from scratch is
too much for you, then direct
selling is a tried and tested way
to get into business. However,
you will need to be cautious.
Just like buying a franchise,
there are several steps you need
to consider to make this process
as risk-free as possible.
Direct selling is where a man-
ufacturer cuts out the retailer
and sells direct to the customer
through independent sales peo-
ple. It is a business that suits
motivated, outgoing people,
who enjoy selling and want to
work from home full or part-
time. Many products are sold
this way, such as cosmetics,
household products, clothing,
adult products, nutritional and
dietary products, often on a par-
ty plan basis. If you have a
good network of people that
you can sell to, this system may
be suitable for you.
The level of support can also
be high, where your sales and
marketing materials, and sales
pitches, are prepared for you,
making it easier for you to start
selling straight away.
There are three methods of
direct selling that you need to
be aware of.
The first method is selling
door-to-door through cold call-
ing. This is where you trudge
the streets, knock on peoples'
doors, make a presentation and
try to get an order, or leave a
catalogue and come back later
to try and pick up a sale. People
are far less likely now to let you
into their homes.
The second method is
through direct selling to your
network of contacts, such as
friends, family, neighbours,
church groups, Parent-Teacher
Associations(PTAs), schools,
clubs. If you have a wide vari-


sAD-Qpo
irJssau Aafpori
T3f . i-.l~~ur'^";: -^O.'r-TL' .'*'


ety of contacts, then this may
be the way for you. Unlike cold
calling, you would work your
contact list, ask for referrals,
network, market yourself
through advertising and PR to
generate interested leads.
The third way of direct selling

Direct selling
is where a
manufacturer
cuts out the
retailer and sells
direct to the
customer
through
independent
sales people.

is through the tried and tested
party plan method, which was
perfected by Tupperware and
Avon. You arrange a party and
demonstrate the goods in the
hope that people buy there and
then, or give you an order for
fulfillment. Again, this method
would suit you if you have a
wide network of contacts.


S o, what is the process for
becoming a direct sales-
person?
The first step is Choosing a
Product Line. Choose some-
thing that you would personally
use, as this should make it easi-
er to sell to others. Home prod-
ucts, jewellery and cosmetics
are usually a hit with others,
particularly if you can offer the
products at good prices and
people can choose them in the
comfort of your home.
The second step is Doing
Some Research. Research the
various companies that sell the
products you are interested in.
Try the Internet or specialist
publications that offer business
opportunities. Check the
forums. The Internet is a good
place where people post their
review on companies and prod-
uct lines. Request their infor-
mation packs, read the sales lit-
erature carefully and prepare a
shortlist.
The third step is Comparing
the Shortlisted Companies. The
questions you will need to ask
yourself at this stage are: How
long has the company been in
business for? What independent
reviews are there on the com-
pany, its products and its work-
ing practices? Is it a product
that you would use yourself?


You're invited..


...to a public information session on the plans for
developing a world-class airport in the Bahamas. The

respective obligations, and what
is the company going to do for
you? What training do they pro-

get from them in return. Avoid
companies that promise you

the proposition stacks up, and
whether it is worth the initial fee.
The last step is Carrying out
Market Research. Check out
who else is out there selling to
your contacts. If there is no one
else, and the product meets a
need, then you are good to go.

Bahamian title





insurance agency





to give protection


A BAHAMIAN title insur-
ance agency yesterday
announced its creation to meet
the growing demand among
real estate purchasers, driven
by the surge in mixed-use resort
developments, for extra protec-
tion and security against title
problems and other transaction
hazards.
First Bahamas Title Insur-
ance Agency will act as the
Bahamian agent for the world's
oldest title insurance company,
Lawyers Title Insurance Cor-
poration, a LandAmerica
Financial Group Company.
First Bahamas said in a state-


ment that Title insurance is crit-
ical in jurisdictions such as the
Bahamas, where the ,issue of
unregistered land had led to
claims challenging "good root
of title" a continuous chain of
legally valid transfers going
back at least 30 years. If proven,
these can render title defective.
Without a secure policy a
purchaser might be liable lor
liens, judgeennts or claims
brought against the new prop-
erty.
Title insurance, though, cov-
ers the legal cost of defending
such claims and, should the
claim prove valid, rein-iburses

the purchaser for actual loss up
to the face value of the policy.
By purchasing title insurance,
buyers will also avoid the neces-
sity for lawyers' title opinions,
so reducing overall costs in pur-
chasing a house or land.
First Bahamas said title insur-
ance was not a substitute for a
complete title search and exam-
ination of the public records in
order to determine a seller's
right to transfer property own-
ership.
Instead, it was a single premi-
um insurance contract for the
protection, defence and indem-
nification for losses caused by
on-record or off-record title
defects, liens or encumbrances

that a title search failed to reveal.
First Bahamas' administra-
tive officer, Naurel E Watkins,
said the most common faults
overlooked by a title search
include mistakes in the record-
ing of legal documents, forged
documents and undisclosed
heirs with interest in the prop-
erty.
'"Title insurance is the next
step in the evolutionary process
of land title assurance," she
said, "and an added line of
defence against any challenge
to an individual's interest in his
or her property. We are excited
to be able to provide this qual-
ity service to our clients though
our affiliation with Lawyers
Title, whose reputation for
financial strength and an ability
to deliver smooth and timely
closings is renowned."
First Bahamas identifies and
eliminates risks that could
endanger an individual's right
to ownership. Unlike general.
health or life insurance policies,
which require monthly premi-
ums, title insurance generates
a one-time premium, after
which the insurer assumes com-
plete financial responsibility for
the defence of title defects
raised against the insured's
property.
First Bahamas will offer own-
er's policies, which endure for as
long as an individual or his or
her heirs have an interest in the
property.
It will also offer policies for
lenders that indemnify in the
event that the title defect
impacts the lender's ability to
enforce its default remedies on
a property.

Freeport can be land



reform 'guinea pig'


* By NEIL HARTNELL
Tribune Business Editor
FREEPORT could be "used
as a guinea1 pig" if the Bahamas
moves to a Title Registration
Systemn or parcel-based land
recording system, an attorney-
has suggested, hitting out at the
inany layers of unnecessary,
repetitive regulations" that
hamper Bahamian-based real
estate transactions.
Fred Smith, a Freeport-based
partner in Callenders & Co, said
the fact that every single par-.
cel of land within the 230 square
mile Grand Bahama Port
Authority (GB PA) area had
been surveyed and mapped
made the city an ideal testing
ground if the Government fol-
lowed consultants' recommen-
dations to alter the land title
deeds recording and registra-
tion system.
Saying he had been practicing
conveyancing and mortgage law
in Freeport for 30 years, Mr
Smith said of the reforms pro-
posed by consultants Interna-
tional Land Systems (ILS): "I
am in complete agreement with
the proposal to convert to a
Title Registration system as
opposed to the archaic, feudal
conveyancing we now endure.
"Freeport stands in a unique
position to the rest of the
Bahamas. Everything stems
from 1955. We stand uniquely
poised to adopt and effect a par-
cel-based land registration sys-
tem."
Mr Smith said that post-1955
and the Hawksbill Creek
Agreement, "every single parcel
of land in the Port area" was
surveyed and now lies in the
databases of the Grand Bahama
Port Authority (GBPA), Grand
Bahama Development Compa-
ny (Devco) and, development
companies such as Grand
Bahamian Hills, Yorkshire
Development Company,
Tamarind and Princess Realty.
As a result, it would be rela-
tively simple to introduce a par-
cel-based land registration and
indexing system in Freeport, as
the surveying and mapping had
already been done.
Weaknesses in the land
deeds recording system are
costing the private sector $230
million per year, ILS consul-
tants have estimated, prompt-
ing recommendations that the
Bahamas move to comprehen-
sively reform the Registry by
either introducing a Parcel-
based Index system or Title
Registration system.
Mr Smith told The Tribune
that real estate transactions in
the Bahamas often "took
months" to close, due to title
issues coupled with govern-
ment red tape and bureaucra-
cy.
He added: "There are so
many layers of unnecessary,
repetitive regulatory
approvals." With most real
estate transactions in Freeport
involving a foreign purchaser
or seller, among the required
approvals were exchange con-
trol permission from the Cen-
tral Bank of the Bahamas; the
Investments Board (Cabinet)

Certificate of Registration for
foreign buyers; and meeting
the Know Your Customer
(KYC) provisions of the Finan-
cial Transactions Reporting
Act (FTRA).
In addition, Mr Smith said
that builders and investors in
Freeport "have to get approval
from the Port Authority to
transfer approved premises
from their Port Authority
licence".
On the title side, Mr Smith
said many title search compa-
nies were "absolving them-
selves of all liability" for rec-
ommendations based on
records and deeds lodged with
the public land registry at the
Registrar General's Depart-
ment. This was because "some-
times the files in which title is
held cannot be found".
Based on the ILS recom-
mendations, Mr Smith said:
"The opportunity exists for
efficiency and speed in con-
veyancing transactions. Cur-
rently, real estate agents are
starving because it takes six
months for transactions to
close, transaction lawyers are
delayed in getting their fees
and, most importantly, buyers
and sellers are frustrated.
"1 would recommend to the
Government that the Land
Reform Commission be insti-
tuted with the task of working
towards developing a more
efficient system and Freeport
could be used as a guinea pig."
Outlining the reform options
available for the Bahamas, ILS
said one was to "do nothing",
apart from "maybe cleaning
up the statutory language"
used in title and conveyancing
documents to make them more
easily understood by ordinary
Bahamians.
Among the advantages of
this approach, he explained,
was that the well-known pre-
sent system, with its under-
stood responsibilities and lia-
bilities, would be maintained.


The Bahamas would also
avoid the need for any legisla-
tive changes. Yet maintaining
the status quo where the deeds
recording system was con-
cerned, ILS said, would con-
tinue to cost the Bahamian pri-
vate sector attorneys who
specialize in conveyancing, plus
realtors, title searchers and
their clients some $230 mil-
lion per year.
. Even if the Bahamas kept
the present deeds recording
system, ILS suggested that it
should at least move away
from a process that, in the first
instance, used name indexing
and the names of persons
involved in real estate trans-
actions to find the relevant
documents. The existing
process also uses dates, and the
chronological order in which
deeds were filed, to help title
searchers and attorneys find
documents.
ILS said that instead, one
option open to the Bahamas
was to move to'a land parcels
indexing system, with the third
and final option being for the
Bahamas to adopt wholesale
reform by scrapping the deeds
recording system and switch-
ing to a Title Registration Sys-
tem.
This would ultimately
involve bona fide Bahamian
property and title owners being
issued with a Certificate of
Title that disclosed and con-
tained all information on their
property, including encum-
brances such as mortgages and
easements.
The advantage of such a sys-
tem was that it provided more
certainty for property owners
and title holders than the pre-
sent system, increasing securi-
ty of tenure.
The downside, though, was
that it would require changes
in Bahamian statutory law and
be far more expensive for the
Government to operate and
maintain.

Mortgages issued


suffer 6% decline


* By CARA BRENNEN-BETHEL
Tribune Business Reporter
THE total number,of mort-
gages issued in the Bahamas
slowed by 5.8 per cent, narrowing
to $127.8 million during the 2007
second quarter as economic
growth slowed compared to last
year, the Central Bank of the
Bahamas revealed yesterday.
According to its review of
domestic economic developments
for the 2007 second quarter of
the year, both commercial and
residential mortgages issued dur-
ing the period declined by 10 per
cent and 5 per cent.


The number of mortgage com-
mitments for new construction
and repairs fell by 29.9 per cent to
260, and the corresponding val-
ue by 34.2 per cent to $34 mil-
lion. Growth in outstanding mort-
gages declined, slackening to 12.5
per cent from 17 per cent.
The Central Bank said the
Bahamian economy "expanded
at a more moderate pace" when
compared to 2006, due largely to
a weakened tourism performance
affected by the Western Travel
Hemisphere Initiative (WHTI).
Figures showed that total visitor
arrivals declined by 12.1 per cent
to 1.15 million, with both air and


sea visitors falling by 8.8 per cent
and 13.8 per cent at 0.41 million
and 0.74 million respectively.
The decline was mainly attrib-
uted to a cruise decline of 15.6 per
cent in Grand Bahama, while New
Providence was off by 7.6 and the
Family Islands by 19.3 per cent.
The hotel sector was able to
benefit from a 6.6 per cent appre-
ciation in hotel revenues to $118.6
million, due to a 12.6 per cent
hike in average room rates,
which offset the 5.3 per cent
downturn in rooms sold. The out-
run reflected improvements in the
New Providence market, where
overall room revenues expanded
by 8.5 per cent in contrast to
declines in revenues for Grand
Bahama by 1.1 per cent, and the
Family Islands by 2.1 per cent.
The economy was also impact-
ed by reduced growth in con-
sumer demand and tempered for-
eign investment flows.
External current account devel-
opments indicated a marginally
lower deficit, benefiting from a
reduction in the merchandise
tradedeficit, andan improved sur-
plus on the services account. How-
ever, the Central Bank said lower
foreign investment-related inflows
led to a narrowing of the capital
and financial account surplus.
Central Bank statistics indicat-
ed that quarterly consumer price
inflation, as measured by changes
in the average retail price index,
advanced to 2:2 per cent from 1.7
per cent in the previous year. The
largest cost increases were regis-
tered for furniture and house-
hold operations, 5.3 per cent,
food and beverages, 4.15 per cent
,and transport and communica-
tion, 3.2 per cent.
There was also an increase in
average consumer prices, which
firmed by 0.8 per cent to 2.4 per
cent over the previous year,
reflecting the continuing effects of
higher global fuel and commodity
prices.
The capital and financial
account surplus contracted by an
estimated $36.8 million to $98
million, due partly to a slowdown
in net direct investment inflows
by $8.9 million to $91.7 million.
Additionally, other net invest-
ments receipts weakened to $26.3
million from $61 million last year.

"The Standard Hours of

which a worker could bring a
lawsuit for unfair dismissal
broadened in similar fashion to
the UK, and extended beyond
trade union activities, materni-
ty and redundancy.
"If you're terminated for oth-
er reasons, you cannot bring an
action for unfair dismissal. That
cannot be right," Mr Ferguson
added. "If you're terminated for
conduct and performance on
the job, or whatever else, you
should be able to bring an
action for unfair dismissal.
"Most dismissals concern
matters of performance and
conduct. These are the major
issues that should be part of the
unfair dismissal provision, and
we would want that to be
looked at."
The unions are also seeking
to reopen and revisit the issue
of lunch hours and lunch pay,
arguing that a worker's lunch


hour was included in the eight-
hour working day. However,
some employers were treating
the lunch hour as being exclud-
ed from the eight hours or
work, something Mr Ferguson
said went against the intent of
the Employment Act.
"A substantial number of
employers are practicing as if it
is eight hours of actual work,
excluding lunch. So it is a 45-
hour day, not 40 hours, and that
causes problems for those work-
ers who cannot leave their
employer's premises," Mr Fer-
guson said. "That is an area we
have had some difficulty with."
The TUC president added
that the combined trade union
movement would also press for
a much stricter definition of the
term 'employer' in the Employ-
ment Act, believing "the defin-
ition should be so structured
that the employee always knows

Mr Ferguson explained they
were seeking this because of
past problems encountered
when workers brought cases
against resorts and multina-
tional companies operating in
the Bahamas, who operated
through complex corporate and
holding structures involving a
variety of companies. With
major resort developments.
developers often form separate
companies to hold or own dif-
ferent parts of the project, such
as the marina, golf course and
hotel.

one company's name may
appear on the worker's pay
cheque and National Insurance
Board (NIB) contributions, if
an industrial dispute was filed it
was often found that he was
employed by an entirely differ-
ent company
This created a "serious prob-
lem'" if the case ever went to
court, Mr Ferguson added, as
many employees were unaware
of the "intricacies" of their
employer's corporate structure.
If the case was filed against
the wrong company, an entity
not employing the worker, Mr
Ferguson said the employer's
attorney could make a legiti-
mate legal point that the action
was against the wrong firm and
should be thrown out.
Mr Ferguson added that the
trade unions also wanted the
Employment Act to include
provisions requiring Bahamian
employers to provide-their-
workers, and the unions that
represented them, with advance
notices of redundancy so that
an amicable settlement could
be reached and industrial dis-
putes avoided.


FROM page one
The area where the
BTC flagship outlet is
oeing located, east of the
Bay Street/East Street
junction, is seen by many
as being something of a
deprived, rundown com-
mercial and retail area out
of which many businesses
have moved or closed
down. Currently, the main
Bay Street retailing land-
mark east of that road
junction is Hoffer Sport.
Yet the arrival ot the
BTC flagship store could
attract additional con-
sumer and retail traffic to
that part of Bay Street,
helping to revive it in con-
junction with other retail-
ers.
- it is understood that a
further boost for that area
will shortly be provided
when Bristol Cellars
opens a planned Bacardi


concept store al the junction
of Bay Street and Last Slieet.
Bristol Cellars executives yes

Mr JIohnsI1n, imicaiwhMilc.
said BTI'( had no plans to

company was assessing how it
could best deliver products
and services to its cristomers.
"I think we arle keenly look-
ing at our distribution chan-
nels and recognise there is a

tomers more effectively." Mr

FROM page one
Mr Delaney repeated the
line offered by Zhivargo
Laing, minister of state for
finance, that while the
Bahamas wanted to protect
the duty-free market access
to the EU that was enjoyed
by its fisheries industries and
other exporters, such as Poly-

mers International, it had to
be mindful of the EPA's
implications for other sectors
of the Bahamian economy
and safeguard those. To do
so, they are arguing, will take
much consideration and more
time.
The Bahamas was a ser-
vices-based economy, Mr
Delaney said, and as the EPA
dealt with services, invest-
ments and competition, the
wider implications had to be
accounted for.
The EPA also deals with
issues such as subsidies, anti-
dumping, rules of origin and
countervailing duties. Signing
on could impact the National
Investment Policy by opening
up areas of the economy tra-
ditionally reserved for
Bahamian ownership to Euro-
pean firms, and opening up
this market to European
work.
Mr Delaney said: "As it
relates to.the EPA, the fish-
eries group is very concerned
to ensure they have a prefer-
ential arrangement, tariff


advantage that they have
enjoyed for many years under

'Hard to escape' the



dropped EPA ball


L:t. 'Thcv would like to see
some kind of arrangement
that would safeguard their
inteicsl s."
The fisheries industry is
concerned that $60 million
worth of exports to the EU,
chilly France, could be jeop-
ardised by the loss of duty-
Iice access that could result
from f.tlinig to sign on to the
EPA. This could result in
their products being exposed
to the 'Most Favoured
Nation' tariffs, making craw-
fish and other Bahamian
seafood exports uncompeti-
tive on price.
However, Mr Delaney said
the EPA had not been dis-
cussed widely among the
Bahamian private sector, and


before the Trade Commission
could provide a position on it
for government policymakers,
its members first needed to
understand what the EPA
involved themselves.

Priority

With the WTO underpin-
ning and driving the EPA,
forcing its birth to replace
Cotonou. Mr Delaney said:
"The big priority for us are
matters relating to the WTO
in a big sense. It is pretty much
the trading regime through-
out the world. The Bahamas is
part of it, but a policy deci-
sion has already been made
that it is in the interests of the


Bahamas to join the WTO.
We have to come to grips with
that."
Mr Delaney said the
Bahamas had been working
on the WTO accession process
for more than five years, since
the latter part of the first
Ingraham administration.
"I am almost made to
understand that some time
within the next five years, all
the work may be done and
accession may take place," Mr
Delaney added.
"The WTO regime is a com-
mon denominator across the
world. From the big picture
perspective, the WTO is the
most important from the basic
point of view of understanding
the global landscape."

Stocks trade is mixed





and Boeing hurt Dowi


* By TIM PARADISE
AP Business Writer

NEW YORK Wall Street
stumbled through a lopsided
session Wednesday, closing
mixed as profit warnings and
news from blue chip names
Alcoa Inc. and Boeing Co.
dragged down the Dow Jones
industrial average but largely
spared technology stocks.
A pullback was to be expect-
ed after the Dow and the Stan-
dard & Poor's 500 index fin-
ished at new highs Tuesday
amid enthusiasm over com-
ments from Federal Reserve
policymakers about interest
rates, but corporate news
appeared to hasten Wednes-
day's slide.
Declines by Dow components


Boeing and Alcoa, among oth-
ers, hurt the 30-stock index.
Meanwhile, International Paper
Co. and Chevron Corp. moved
lower on profit news.
With investors thumbing
through fresh quarterly results
and company news, the latest
economic readings did little to
dislodge the dichotomy between
blue chips and tech stocks. A
report showed inventories
among U.S. wholesalers ticked
up in August, while a trade
group for real estate agents
warned the drop in sales of
existing homes this year will be
steeper than had been expected.
The stock market's uneven
but still relatively calm trading
Wednesday followed the surge
the day before that was sparked
by release of the minutes from

the Fed's last meeting. Wall
Street initially was ebullient that
the Fed didn't appear to rule
out further rate cuts but, on
reflection, some investors
seemed to be questioning
whether that response was a lit-
tle too optimistic.
"People are looking back-
ward' at what the Fed was dis-
cussing to try and discern
whether or not we're in a reces-
sion," said Kim Caughey, equi-
ty research analyst at Fort Pitt
Capital Group. "Looking in the
rearview mirrorisn't going to
give us that clarity because its
history, so instead I'm really
looking forward to what corpo-
rate earnings will show."
According to preliminary cal-
culations, the Dow fell 85.84, or
0.61 percent, to 14,078.69 after


rising 120 points on Tuesday.
Broader stock indicators were
mixed. The S&P 500 fell 2.68, or
0.17 percent, to 1,562.47, and
the technology-laden Nasdaq
composite index rose 7.70, or
0.27 percent, to 2,811.61.

Bonds

Bond prices were little
changed. The yield on the
benchmark 10-year Treasury
note was unchanged at 4.65 per-
cent, compared with late Tues-
day. The dollar was mixed
against other major currencies,
while gold prices rose.
Light, sweet crude rose $1.04
to settle at $81.30 per barrel on
the New York Mercantile
Exchange following word that

industrial average


workers at Chevron facilities in
Nigeria had staged a surprise
strike and by a report that
demand for gasoline is up.
Wednesday's session came as
investors tried to determine
whether the Fed will make a
move when it meets Oct. 30-31.
Last month's decision to lower
short-term interest rates by a
larger-than-expected half per-
centage point helped stoke a
recovery in stocks after a sharp
summer pullback amid concerns
about tight access to credit and
an economic slowdown.
But corporate, not broad eco-
nomic concerns, appeared to
attract Wall Street's attention
Wednesday. Boeing fell $2.77,
or 2.7 percent, to $98.68 after
announcing it was delaying ini-
tial deliveries of its 787 Dream-
liner commercial aircraft by six


months. The company cited
challenges in finishing assem-
bly of the first airplanes.
Alcoa posted a 3 percent
profit increase as revenue fell.
But excluding a boost to its bot-
tom line from the sale of a stake
in a Chinese aluminum compa-
ny, the aluminum producer's
results fell short of Wall Street's
expectations. Alcoa fell 99
cents, or 2.5 percent, to $38.73.
International Paper lowered
its projection for how much it
expects to take in from sales of
land in the third quarter, news
that sent shares falling 88 cents,
or 2.3 percent, to $36.18.
Chevron fell 72 cents to
$92.08 after the company
warned that its third-quarter
profit will come in well below
the $5.4 billion it earned in the
second quarter.


However, Wall Street also
received some upbeat news
when Costco Wholesale Corp.
reported better-than-expected
results. Shares of the retailer
gave a boost to the Nasdaq, ris-
ing $5.82, or 9.2 percent, to
$69.13.
Declining issues outnum-
bered advancers by about 6 to 5
on the New York Stock
Exchange, where volume came
to 1 billion shares, down from
1.09 billion Tuesday.
The Russell 2000 index of
smaller companies fell 0.53, or
0.06 percent, to 845.19.
Overseas, Japan's Nikkei
stock average rose 0.10 percent.
Britain's FTSE 100 closed up
0.27 percent, Germany's DAX
index rose 0.08 percent, and
France's CAC-40 fell 0.40 per-
cent.
