Govt assesses

DEFENCE Force officers
will be leaving for Cat Island
today to assist in pumping up
to 13 feet of water from settle-
ments that a number of fami-
lies have been forced to evacu-
ate.
Prime Minister Hubert Ingra-
ham, with Works Minister Earl
Deveaux, went to Cat Island,
Long Island, and Exuma yes-
terday to assess the damage
from Tropical Storm Noel.
In Cat Island, in the settle-
ment of Alligator Bay, some six
families have had to be evacu-
ated due in some instances
- to almost 13 feet of water
settling around their homes.
Much needed drinking water,
also will be flown into the island
today as medical officers on the
ground report that the local
drinking water has been conta-
minated. Residents are advised
to boil their water before using
it.
Also due to the flooding, the
settlements of Devil's Point,
McQueen's, Hawks Nest, and
Port Howe are now completely
cut off from the rest of the
island.
As a result, the Defence


Force has been called in to
assist with the pumping of water
from the roads to make certain
these areas, which are also with-
out electricity, are again acces-
'sible.
In Long Island, the Dead-
man's Cay airport remained
flooded yesterday. Only a small
portion at the northern end was
free of water. The terminal and
surrounding acreage were com-
pletely underwater.
In the settlement of Simm's,
residents had to use boats to get
out of their homes as water had
settled up to 10 feet in some
areas.
Prime Minister Ingraham and
Minister Deveaux were making
an assessment of the area to
ensure that the necessary
resources are made available to
those persons in need.
On the island of Exuma, res-
idents fared much better by
comparison with some flooding
of the golf courses at the Four
Season Resort and residential
areas in and around the island's
capital, George Town.
One government complex in
particular was under water -
blocking access to it from every
angle. However, for the most
part, the island seemed to have
been spared in terms of dam-
age to crops, homes, and infra-
structure.

RESIDENTS throughout the capital may
experience a temporary lull in garbage collec-
tion as the Department of Environmental Health
attempts to catch up on the backlog of trash left
on collection routes because of Tropical Storm
Noel.
The department plans to make an "aggres-
sive" effort over the weekend to return to the
normal collection schedule that was disrupted
as Noel, the deadliest storm of the 2007 Atlantic
season, ripped through the Caribbean earlier in
the week.
"All of our offices have been alerted to the
need for us to try to be as vigilant as we can be
and as aggressive with the collection, so hopefully
if it doesn't rain (over the weekend) we will be on
schedule," Melanie McKenzie, Director of Envi-
ronmental Health, told The Tribune during a
telephone interview yesterday.
Areas on schedule for evening collection this
past Wednesday and Thursday will be paramount
on the department's list as officials re-organize
the disrupted schedule, Ms McKenzie added.

Man killed after running onto highway

FREEPORT A 31-year-
old pedestrian, who had been
seen just minutes before leav-
ing a sports bar, was struck and
killed instantly after running
onto East SunriseHighway on


Thursday evening.
The victim has been identi-
fied by police as Gino
Williams, of 485 Inagua
Avenue, on "The Ridge." His
death is the sixth traffic fatali-
ty on Grand Bahama this year.
Chief Supt Basil Rahming,
press liaison officer, reported
that the accident occurred
around 8.30pm.


According to reports,
Williams had walked out of
'3J's Sports Bar in the East
Sunrise Shopping Centre and
ran towards the highway.
He hit a traffic sign posted
in the median with his hand,
then ran onto the eastbound
lanes of the dual carriageway

Airport operations

back to normal

By NATARIO McKENZIE
WITH operations at the Lyn-
den Pindling International Air-
port resuming yesterday morn-
ing following a two-day standstill,
because of Tropical Storm Noel,
tourism officials said they were
pleased things were "back to e r-
mal."
"Flights were coming in on
schedule and flights were going
out on schedule. I am satisfied
that things are back to normal in
terms of, people's ability to get
into the country and their ability
to get out on a scheduled basis,"
Vernice Walkine Director General of Tourism told The Tri-
bune yesterday.
In an interview with The Tribune, Mrs Walkine noted that the
departure process was of particular concern to tourism officials,
citing the large number of persons who would have been sched-
uled to leave the country earlier this week.
"I think it's fair to say they we are satisfied that things are
going as well as could be expected," Mrs Walkine said.
"My staff at the airport have been reporting in to me pretty
much every hour on the hour about the way the check-in process
has been going because that was our particular concern.
"Obviously there would have been a backlog of people want-
ing to get out and the lines were quite significant this morning
because people decided to go out to the airport early to get the
first available flight they could get out.

Noel's torrential rain may have to wait a little
longer for garbage collection as sanitation work-
ers assess water levels in those areas.
"The flooded areas are going to be of concern
primarily because we can't collect (from) the
flooded areas because as you know our trucks
will displace a great deal of water and we don't
want to disadvantage the persons in those com-
munities any further. However, we are going to
have to work out some way as the water drains
away to pick (the garbage) up."
Yesterday morning sanitation workers were
dispatched to assess the flooding throughout
New Providence to determine which neighbour-
hoods they could collect waste from without dis-
placing water in the flooded areas, Ms McKenzie
told The Tribune.
Many residents have voiced complaints about
the "irregularity" of garbage collection, calling for
the Department to increase its efforts. While
rioting some neighborhoods experience collec-
tion "like clockwork", Ms McKenzie said the
Department of Environmental Health is awaiting
new collection vehicles in an effort to expedite
the collection process. Approximately 10 new
trucks have been placed on a rush order which
should be shipped in two or three instalments by

WAVES MOVE in from the Atlantic Ocean seen from the beach at Ocracoke Island, N.C. on Friday, Nov.
2, 2007. Wind gusts of nearly 50 mph hit offshore Friday as Hurricane Noel followed a northeastward
path in the Atlantic Ocean that was expected to bring the storm parallel to North Carolina's coast.


Hurricane Noel


moves up Eastern


seaboard of the US


* By KARIN HERIG
Tribune Staff Reporter
kherig@tribunemedia.net
AFTER drenching the
Bahamas, Hurricane Noel yes-
terday moved up the Eastern
seaboard of the United States,
bringing heavy rains and 75 mile
per hour winds to the Caroli-
nas.
Before Tropical Storm Noel
strengthened to a category one
hurricane on Thursday evening,
the system churned through the
Caribbean, killing at least 115
people in Haiti and Dominican
Republic, and one man in the
Bahamas.
US states along the east coast
yesterday experienced winds of
up to 40 mph from the outer
bands of storm.
Forecasters were predicting
that by the time Hurricane Noel
reaches New England and
Rhode Island today, coastal
towns could expect 80 mph
winds, up to three inches of rain
and 20-foot waves.
The storm is expected to
weaken as it moves over colder
water and should become less
organised before it hits Nova
Scotia.


However, meteorologists.
warned that Hurricane Noel
will collide with the jet stream at
some point which will cause the
system to strengthen once
again, creating a huge "ocean
storm".
Hurricane Noel is the dead-
liest storm of the 2007 Atlantic,
storm season. Torrential rains
caused mudslides in Haiti and
the Dominican Republic and
flooded several Family Islands
in the Bahamas.
Worst hit by the storm was
Long Island, where hundreds
of homes were flooded.
In some areas of the island
people found themselves
wading through waist-deep
water.
In Exuma, 33-year-old Kevin
Milford, DJ at the local radio
station "The Breeze", drowned
on his way to work.
The father of three daughters
was reportedly on the way to
work with another person,
when the truck he was in
became submerged in the flood-
ed street.
The two men were forced to
swim, but Mr Milford was said
to have been swept away by the
current.

is either wrong with the pic-

Undocumented

immigrant

detained after

testifying in case
SMIAMI
AN UNDOCUMENTED day
laborer was detained after he tes-
(ified in court against a man
accused of attacking him, a move
denounced Friday by immigrant
rights groups, according to Asso-
ciated Press.
Carlos Cruz Gallego. a Colom-
bian immigrant, was taken into
custody at his Miami home short-
ly after he left the stand Thurs-
day.
"This is a horrible precedent
that's set," said Jonathan Fried,
-* executive director for WeCount!,
a social justice organization.
Gallego's detention sends a
message to illegal immigrants that
"if they're a victim of crime, they
- can't testify," Fried said. "And
that's going to hurt the whole
community."
Brooke Greco, an attorney
with the Florida Immigrant Advo-
cacy Center, argued that Gallego
has temporary legal status while
his visa application is pending.
Gallego was eligible for a "U"
visa, given to victims of violent
crime who cooperate with author-
ities. The alleged attack took
place in November 2006.
But an official with U.S. Immi-
gration and Customs Enforce-
ment said Gallego was arrested
in March for overstaying his orig-
inal nonimmigrant visa, and was
granted bond for the sole purpose
of testifying in the assault case.
Gallego was detained after his
testimony because the state attor-
ney's office said they no longer
needed him for the trial, according
to an ICE official familiar with
the case.

'can't recall


worse weather'


in Rum Cay

RETIRED seamstress Advilda Scavella can't recall w orse weath
eri in Rum Cay in all her 92 ears.
The tiny island's oldest resident could t believe her eves when
tropical Storm Noel passed over.
Nearly ever\ house in Rum Cav's main settlement Port Nel-
son --- was flooded. \nd the island's airport was left under two fee!
of water.
Mrs Scavella yesterday left all her doors and windows open to air
her waterlogged home.
Her daughter, Delores Wilson. said: "It rained hard all night. The
thunder and lightning were terrible. It was very frightening.
"My mother, who was born here 92 years ago. can't remember
anything like it in all that time."
At The Mangrove, a nearby sub-division, homes werc left strand
ed by floor water.
Rum Cay's young men were yesterday helping the clean-up
operation throughout the community.
Roads remained flooded, but by last night water levels were
beginning to fall.




Grand Bahama is


virtually untouched


by tropical storm

Reporter

FREEPORT Grand
Bahama was hardly (ouched by
Tropical Storm Noel, which
passed to the northeast of the
island on Thursday.
Kirk James, of the Grand
Bahama Weather Department,
reported that the island got only
0.14 inches of rain from the
storm.
"We got very few feeder
bands and experienced very
light showers," he said.
Schools throughout the island
reopened, and government
offices and businesses resumed
normal hours of operation yes-
terday.
Grand Bahama Internation-
al Airport did not close at any
point during the week and yes-
terday flights from Freeport
continued as usual
The Emergency Operation


Centre in Freeport was report-
edly deactivated on Friday
morning. I''he Tribune attempt
ed to call the EOC, but the calls
were not answered.
The Maurice Moore Primary
School, which was designed to
be a shelter for East End resi-
dents, has also been officially
closed.
Although Grand Bahama was
on the weaker side of the storm,
residents of East End were
expected to experience some
effects from the system as it
passed northeast of the island.
However, there was not
enough deterioration in (he
weather to cause concern in that
area of the island.
"We received only light rain
showers and winds, but nothing
to be concerned about," said
High Rock reside nt Priscilla
Cooper.

EDTRI SA U-T S T HEEITOR


NEW YORK There's a phrase that
C.,ine into vogue a while back: "having it
For a couple of years, magazines, news-
i,,pers and TV were full of stories about
supeiwomen who were doing everything:
workingg full-time jobs, raising perfect chil-
dien, volunteering at their children's
,,ciiools and hosting gourmet dinner parties
iii their spare time.
Those women were meant to be an inspi-
::t;ion. but instead they ended up making
L eryone else feel inadequate and prob-
ably having nervous breakdowns them-
, lives within a few years.
As someone who is often perceived as
"having it all," let me just say this outright:
i hate that phrase. The implication is that
- cry person wants exactly the same thing,
,iich is completely untrue. You don't have
it, marry the lawyer or doctor, win the U.S.
' ~en in tennis and become a CEO all in
it 1, same year in order to find success and
happiness.
Blindly striving to have it all is not the
answer.
Having what I call a 360-degree life isn't

d.). it's about achieving balance. It,mneans
ci eatingg a fully rounded existence, one that
ctcompasses deep satisfaction with. your
J, rsonal life. work and family.
Here's a confession: I was a workaholic
in my 20s. I badly wanted not only to
achieve but to overachieve -- to go fur-
w'.r, faster and do more than anyone else.
Whatever it took to get ahead in my career,
hi at's what I spent time doing. I was really
h.ippy during those years, and honestly
don't regret a moment of all that hard
wai k.

black Lab, I have a keener appreciation
for all the non-work pleasures life can
bring.
I still work very hard and travel con-
.:iantly, but when I'm away from work, I'm
tIuly away from it. Even if.you're ambi-
ious, it's not a crime to leave at 5.30 pm on
;ome days. Because the reality is, you're
going to be a better, more effective employ-
ee if you have a satisfying personal life.

self'? How do you determine not only what
you want in your life, but what you can
realistically achieve?
One way is by looking at those questions
from a slightly different angle: Maybe you
can have all the things you want just
not all at the same time. In my case, that
meant focusing mainly on work in my 20s
and 30s and becoming a mother in my 40s.
That choice wouldn't suit everyone, espe-
cially considering the potential age-related
complications of getting pregnant after 40,
but it has worked well for me.
Some women want nothing more than to
stay home with their kids, and some are
dying to get back to work. Most of us fall
somewhere in the middle. The key is to
make the decision that's right for you no
matter what anyone else thinks your right
answer should be. So, let's say you've made
the decision that you want both a family
and a career. How can you do it all?
I went back to work within a couple of
weeks of adopting our son, Duffy (we
adopted our daughter, Alison, four years
later). My husband Tom and I both were
comfortable with making the decision to
have me go back to work full-time. I did
.bring Duffy with me to a few off-site meet-
Sings at USA Today, with nanny or mother-
ii-law in tow, and to his credit, my boss Al
Neuharth who had very progressive
ideas about families and work time -
encouraged parents to bring their children
to work on occasion. But even with those
advantages, I remember what a balancing
act it was to raise our kids, work long hours
and do so much travelling at the same time.
It is possible to have a family and a
career, though time and energy are both
finite, so you'll have to make choices and,
sometimes, sacrifices. Feel free to explore
any solutions to the family-plus-work equa-
tion either traditional or not so tradi-
tional that might work for you. And
remember, it's not about whether you can
do it all, it's about whether you can be hap-
py' whatever you're doing.

lims to reject Jesus outright
than to reinvent him based on
what Muhammad said more
than 600 years after Jesus'
time. On the other hand, it
needs to be made perfectly
clear that true Chrislians can-
not go to war and kill others in
Jesus' name. Jesus in John 18
vs 36 clearly states that his ser-
vants do not fight physically
to advance His Kingdom Dur-
ing this period of time when
God's grace is prevailing., he
true Holy War consists of
preaching the'Gospel, prayer,
praise and worship (Ephesians
6 vs 10- 1 8; 1 Corinthians I vs;
18).
I unfortunately the Muslims
have knowingly or unknow-
ingly sided in the cornei.of
Antichrist by denying that
Jesus is the Son of God and
Word of God in human in


(2 John vs 7-11). I pray that
even still God would open
their understanding to the
truth revealed to John The
Baptist, Peter, James and John
and Paul (Luke 3 vs 31-22;
Luke 9 vs 35 & Acts 9 vs 20).
Bolh Christians and Muslims
alike need to know what Rev-
elations and other scriptures
say about the ultimate
Antichrist of prophecy. He
will crave and receive worship;
he will blaspheme God and
everything and everyone asso-
ciated with God. He will per-
secute the saints and behead
some of them (Rev. 13 vs 4-7
and 20 vs 4). Such a person
could not be a true Christian.
nor a Muslim. May God's
truth shine ever brightly, even
in these latter days before the
coining of the King of Kings%
and His Kingdom reign on
Earth.

EDITOR, The Tribune.
I WRITE in response to a
letter to The Tribune-dated
October 4, 2007 and published
on October 6, 2007. It was
authored by Sons of Zion
Islamic Alliance (SOZIA). In
the letter the writers addressed
some of our modern day
hypocrisy on a range of sub-
jects. They touched on the
Iraq and Crusade Wars:
Christopher Columbus: Cre-
ation vs haphazard evolution:
alcohol vs marijuana use; the
homosexual agenda, etc. Of
course they concluded with a
long section asserting that
Islam is the one true religion.
They also made a startling
statement (quote) "...in the
book of Revelations it is said
that in the end times the world
will be divided by two main
religions: in these times we see
that they are Islam and Chris-
tianity".
Since they mentioned Rev-
elations, please note some of
the books teachings about
Jesus Christ:
Jesus died and shed his
blood to redeem all who
would believe in Him. (Rev 1
vs 5: 5 vs 9: 7 vs 14: 12 vs 11
(He is the Lamb Of God see
also John I vs 29 & 36).
Jesus is revealed to be The
Son Of God (Rev 2 vs 18);
The First and the last (Rev 1
vs 17; 2 vs 8 and 22 vs 13): the
Alpha and Omega (Rev 1 vs 8
and 11;21 vs 6 & 22 vs 13)
He is also The Faithful
Witness: The Firstborn from
the dead and The ruler over
the Kings of the earth (Rev 1'
vs 5: 3,vs 14: 17 vs 14: 19 vs 11
&19 vs 16) ,
While the Muslims claim to
honour Jesus, they honour
only a "redefined Jesus not
the Jesus honoured and
approved by God. In order to
validate teachings of Muham-
mad, he and they discredited
the teachings of Jesus himself:
the Apostles and the Church
pertaining to the nature, per-
son, work, roles and position
of Jesus Christ. The Old Tes-
tament anticipated and pre-
dicted the birth, ministry,
death resurrection and com-
ing Kingdom of the Messiah
Saviour. We see these things
realized in the New Testa-
ment. The testimony about
Jesus, the Son of Man and Son
of God, is the foundation of
the Church. Perhaps it would
be more honest of the Mus-

Why do we want to


introduce new species?

EDITOR, The Tribune.
PLEASE permit me space in your column to address Mr
Edison Key and Associates. First of all I want let them know that
there are active Animal Rights groups here in the Bahamas and
have been since 1924. We are always talking about invasive
species of animals and plants in this country of ours and the toll
they take on our eco system.
So pray tell me why do we want to introduce new species of
fowl or small animals, for some trigger happy tourist to come
here and spend a couple of dollars.
There is enough gun x violence in our country today, please put
vour focus on tourists who will leaxe their guns at home, We
must teach our children to respect animals., shooting them and
storing them in fi eezers is a very poor example of respecting ani-
mals. In the Bahamas we already have the best form of hunting
and that is fishing, you get the excitement of the hunt, the plea-
sure of the release ot a nice meal. I do not see us making it bet-
ter again by killing defenseless animals. Is not Abaco all about
conservation ?
Our neighbours to the north are famous for going ballistics in
public places wilh their guns. Do we want to take that chance?
A solution lo attracting tourists who have a great gun culture in
them and want to get the edge out or away from a frustrated
busy lifestyle. set up a paintball park and let them shoot at one
another and at the end of the day, they meet new friends,
nobody is hurt and no unnecessary suffering of animals or
exploitation of wildlife.

Mexico rallies

as hundreds

of thousands

flee Gulf floods
VILLAHERMOSA,
Mexico
HUNDREDS of thousands
of Mexicans fled a flooded
region of the Gulf coast Friday,
"- jumping from rooftops into res-
cue helicopters, scrambling into
boats or swimming out through
murky brown water, according
to Associated Press.
President Felipe Calderon
called the flooding in Tabasco
state one of Mexico's worst
recent natural disasters, and
pledged to rebuild.
A week of heavy rains
caused rivers to overflow,
drownriing at least 80 percent of
the oil-rich state. Much of the
state capital, Villahermosa,
looked like New Orleans after
Hurricane Katrina, with water
.- reaching to second-story
rooftops and desperate people
awaiting rescue.
At least one death was
reported and nearly all services,
including drinking water and
public transportation, were shut
down. The flood affected more
than 900,000 people in the state
of 2 million their homes
flooded, damaged or cut off by
high water.
A 10-inch natural gas
pipeline sprang a leak after
flooding apparently washed
away soil underneath it, but it
was unclear if other facilities
operated by. the state-run
Petroleos Mexicanos were
damaged or if oil production
was affected.
Workers tried to protect Vil-
lahermosa's famous Olmec
statues by placing sandbag col-
lars around their enormous
stone heads, and built sandbag
walls to hold back the Grijalva
River in the state capital.
But the water rose quickly,
surprising residents used to
annual floods and forcing sol-
diers to evacuate the historic
*city center. The dikes failed
Thursday night, and water
swamped the capital's bus sta-
tion and open-air market.


arrives in the Bahamas


US AMBASSADOR-desig-
nate Ned Siegel arrived in the
Bahamas yesterday, saying he
looks forward to starting work.
Mr Siegel said he and his wife
Stephanie are "delighted" to
have arrived.
"We have visited the
Bahamas many times over
many years for family vacations,
celebrations, and business con-
ferences," Mr Siegel said. "We
have always been gratified by
the warmth and friendliness of
the Bahamian people.
Stephanie and I now look for-
ward to living and working in
Nassau and becoming part of
the Bahamian community.
"The ties that bind our peo-
ple and our governments are
deeply rooted in family con-
nections, business links, educa-
tional experience, mutual trav-
el, and personal friendships. I
welcome the opportunity to
deepen and enrich those ties
during my tenure as ambas-
sador," Mr Siegel said.
He said that he looked for-
ward to presenting his creden-
tials to Governor General
Arthur Hanna and working
with the Bahamas government
to represent the United States


and further the many common
interests shared by both coun-
tries.
"We are truly honoured and
humbled to be here in your
beautiful country," he said.
Ned L Siegel has had a very
successful career in real estate
and business, while volunteer-
ing time to personally impor-
tant civic, Jewish, educational
and political causes.
Before this, he practised law,
and served as a law clerk to
Chief Justice Mitchell H Cohen
in the Federal District Court in
Camden, New Jersey, before
moving to join the law firm of
Kimmelman, Wolff and Sam-
son.
In 1977, Mr Siegel left law
behind to pursue his love of
business, joining the Howard
Siegel Companies.
By 1980, he had expanded the
company into one of the largest
residential developers in the
United States and was named
president and managing part-
ner of the Weingarten-Siegel
Group, Inc, where he was pri-
marily responsible for the oper-
ations, overall development and
marketing of residential com-
munities, office parks and retail


centres throughout New Jersey.
In 1984, Mr Siegel expanded

isation, Lady Fawkes was presented with a plaque
and a gift. She said that she still looks forward to con-
tinuing her support for the work of the association
and helping with Phase Three of the YWCA's build-
ing programme.

the beginning of 2008.
Last month officials at the

As soon as the Department

Street home two weeks ago.
They were asking the pub-
lic for assistance in locating
her.
However, Ms Missick yes-
terday said she had never
been missing and that she
had simply been staying with
her older sister, Jennifer
Hanna.
The young woman
explained that she had had
an argument with her moth-
er two weeks ago and decid-
ed to leave her home to
move in with her sister.
Due to a misunderstand-
ing, Ms Missick's family was
not informed that she was
staying with her sister.
Ms Missick said that
although she is not yet pre-
pared to call her mother, she
wants to let her know that
she is safe.
The young woman said
she now wants to meet with
her mother to talk to her
before she moves back
home.
However, Ms' Clark
denies that she had had any
argument with her daughter.
She said when she left home


that afternoon to pick up her
five-year-old child from
school, Stacey was quite
happy. Ms Clark said that
before she left they were
watching TV together, eat-
ing, talking and laughing. "I
told her I would be right
back," said Ms Clark. "But
when I got back she was
gone."
Ms Clark said that a
friend of the family went to
Jennifer Hanna's home two
weeks ago to find out if
Stacey were there. "Mrs
Hanna denied that Stacey
was there and said she knew
nothing of her where-
abouts," the friend told Ms
Clark.
"Do you think I would
have been up and down in
all this rain, called the
police, gone to The Tribune
to report her missing, missed
days at work looking for her,
and had all those sleepness
nights if I had known where
she was?" her upset mother
asked last night.
Up until late last night Ms
Clark still had not heard
from her daughter.

Airport operations

FROM page one

"We were provided with a list of all the scheduled flights that the caf-
riers were going to be able to put on today," Mrs Walkine said.
"The last report I got from my staff, which would have been around
3 pm, indicated that people were well accommodated by the carriers
because in some instances the airlines actually put on additional flights,
to really take care of the backlog," she said.
"The check-in process obviously went very well because at 3 pm I .
was informed that there were no lines anywhere in the departure-
area, but what happened as a result was that the lounge upstairs was
pretty crowded because obviously a lot of the flights were attempting
to go out around the same time which was between noon and 3 pm,"
she noted.
"All in all I think it's fair to say that we are pleased with the way.'
things went in the capital," Mrs Walkine said.
Janice Antonson, Vice President of Marketing at LPIA, told The Tri-
bune yesterday that the airport was operational at 8 o'clock Friday, .
morning.
"There is some rescheduling of flights so we are not up to the full
capacity yet, but we anticipate a pretty smooth day," Ms Antonson said, .
"The airlines have to reschedule some of their flights because they,-
have not been operational for two days so not everyone is operating at,'
the exact time that they would normally operate at.
"A lot of airlines are bringing in extra planes and extra sections tc?
move all the passengers that may or may not have been affected by it,",
she said.
Ms Antonson said that the airport, which over the years has been
plagued by flooding, suffered no damage during the storm. I'. i'
"There was no damage at all. We were very fortunate. We could,
have opened a bit sooner, but we had to wait for daylight so that they,, .
could do the runway sweep and the tower has to check all of th,,"
equipment. It's up to the tower actually as to when we have the g9
ahead to resume. We were given the go ahead at eight am this morn-
ing and everything was just fine," Ms Antonson said.
A release by the Department of Civil Aviation said that 13 airport'
in the family islands are operational:
They include airports in Governor's Harbour, Eleuthera, Stella
Maris, Long Island, Great Harbour Cay, Berry Islands, Chub Cayv'
Great Inagua, Congo Town, South Andros, Fresh Creek, Central.
Andros, San Andros, North Andros, Mangrove Cay, San Salvador,
Staniel Cay, Exuma, Acklins, Crooked Island and Bimini.
The release also stated that the airport in North Eleuthera is
closed due to standing water and debris. The airport in New Bight, Cat
Island is also closed because the apron is underwater as well as covered
with debris. The airports in Rum Cay and Rock Sound, Eleuthera, are -
also closed as well as the airport in Ragged Island where the Depart-'
ment of Civil Aviation is still awaiting an assessment report.

If approved by voters
ina Dec. 2 referendum,
the changes would be
Chavez's most radical
move yet in his push to
transform Venezuela
i.'to a socialist state.
:The changes would
allow the government to

would extend president

Long Island is facing





serious flooding issues


* By ADRIAN GIBSON
ajbahania@hotnlail.coni


H HURRICANES are
one of the most
cataclysmic, ruinous aspects
of Mother Naluie's weath-
er arsenal. Residents of
Long Island, my home, can
attest to the devastating
effects a hurricane, or trop-
ical storm, can have on a
place.
In .'-"-, Long Island was
ravaged byv hurricane
Frances. 1However, as pre-
sent MP arnd Minister of
Agriculture and Marine
Resourni s Larry Cartwrightl
stated in 2005, many
islanders felt like their pleas
for assistance were ignored
by then Minister of Hous-
ing Shane Gibson.
"People's homes and stuff
have been ruined, man, and
they have nothing. When I
first got into parliament (in
2002) the minister (Shane
Gibson) assisted me with a
progiraine here, but there
has beeli nothing since
then." Mr Cartwright said
then.
As Im sure they do now,
back then many residents
feared that any further dam-
age to their homes and
property would have an
unfavourable effect upon
their livelihoods and "shal-
low pockets."
Today, Long Islanders
are again confronted by
enormous losses and exten-
sive uirnmtion of their prop-
erties.
For weeks, the island has
been almost submerged due
to heavy torrenmial down-
pours. 'his week. the island
has faced intense winds :mId

"Man, things rough! Peo-

"There is no electricity

"Throughout Long Island, there

hardly any drainage outlets.
Reportedly, entire families have
been forced to abandon their
homes, and farms and
businesses are severely flooded."

-This is a sign up here!"
Mrs Gibson exclaimed.
She also stated that she,
like many other Long
Islanders, were unable to

members 'in certain parts of
the island (eg Burnt
Ground) ;;. .hi phones \%ere.
abled
. ayl. e Q.i-.s, of


O'Neal's, is also facing dif-
ficult circumstances as every
room in her house is flood-
ed.
Even before the passage
of Tropical Storm Noel, the
heavy rains of two weeks
ago destroyed numerous
farms on the island.

According to local
farmers, they also
lost livestock as many of
their animals got cramps
and either died from the
harsh conditions or
drowned. Although many
livestock farmers attempted
to move their animals to ele-
vated land, they still
incurred many losses.
Long island farmers say
that their crops such as
maize, water melons and
tomatoes are under
water, and have become too
"soggy" and water-logged to
sell.
They say they doubt that
they could even save some
for personal consumption.
Many farmers are concerned
about their huge financial
losses, but they take solace
in having survived the
storm/flooding.
According to fishermen
on the island, their liveli-
hood is on hold. Generally,
they all said that for the past
month, the waters have been
"too muddy" to dive or fish
and that the seas were too
rough.
Many boats throughout
the island have beefi hauled.
o.n-l dH- Jikuluianr -r-mw


Both of the airports on
Long Island are swamped,
possibly cracked and with
debris. There is no air traffic
entering or leaving the
island, and tourists hurried-
ly left earlier this week when
the island was initially noti-
fied of the incoming storm.
Furthermore, the mail-
boat servicing the island is
unable to travel.
Due to the lack of mail-
boat service, islanders now
musr conserve their food
and gas supplies as store and
gas station proprietors are
incapable of immediately
replenishing their stock after
all supplies in their
stockrooms have been
exhausted.
Sadly, the island faces
even more petrifying times
as the water supply is said
to be contaminated due to
flooding and the overflow of
sewage, namely because the
vast majority of islanders
still use personal wells.
Describing the present
state of Long Island, one
resident said:
"There are people in their
roofs, in the attic my broth-
er! You can steer a boat in
some of these yards here,
and if you want, you might
be able to catch a snapper
or a grunt because they are
swimming all over the road.
"For those people that
live near the sea, well, the
sea has become their back-
yards and engulfed their
homes!"
Long Island is again fac-
ing economic peril. Indeed,
the economic fallout from
the storm and the recent
flooding is devastating, but
Long Islanders are industri-
ous and resilient people and,
with the government s assis-
tance, are sure to bounce
back.

zation of women committed to service in
their respective communities. The retire-
ment of the construction loan coincided with a
the celebration of 20 years since the local
chapter was started as an interest group in
The Bahamas.

retirement and 20 years of friendship and
service in a Gala Dinner at the Crown Ball
Room on Saturday 27th October, 2007.....

ment by the National Youth Choir, Ms.
