Security guard shot
dead after complying
with attackers’ demands

ll By PACO NUNEZ
Tribune Staff Reporter _

'A-SECURITY guard was
shot in the back of the head and
murdered as he lay on the floor
of a pharmacy during an armed
robbery, police have confirmed.

The cold-blooded killing was .--

described as a “senseless act”
as 28-year-old Richard Petty

had complied with the attack- |

ers’ demands.

He was reportedly defence-
less at the time, and had co-
operated completely with his
murderers throughout the rob-
bery.

Mr Petty, a resident of the

Colony Club area, was the
country’s third murder victim
of 2005.
* Police Superintendent Hulan
Hanna said that the robbery
occurred at 7.30pm, when two
men approached the door to
Wilmac’s Pharmacy on Poin-
ciana Drive and were let in by
Mr Petty, who was the security
officer on duty there at the time.
, The employers and family
members told The Tribune yes-
terday that they are shocked
and enraged by the murder.
They say they have been
robbed of a hard working and
well-loved young man.

“They shot him for nothing,
they already had the money,”

one of his employers said.

Mr Petty was reportedly lying
face down on the floor, in accor-
dance with the wishes of the
robbers, when he was shot in
the back of the head.

“Once on the inside the indi-
widuals placed masks on their
faces, and announced that it was
a hold up,” Mr Hanna said.

He said the suspects ordered
staff and customers to the floor.

The men proceeded to take
money from the cash register,
“then on leaving, they turned

’ their weapon on Mr Petty and

he was shot in the head,” Mr
Hanna said.

He said the suspects are
thought to have escaped the
scene on a motorcycle.

“We’re following some leads
in connection with this matter,”
he said.

Curt McCartney, the owner
of Wilmac’s Pharmacy, told The
Tribune that he and his staff are
extremely upset about Mr Pet-
ty’s death.

“He was a very nice guy, very
protective of us,” he said.

Mr Petty had been a security
officer at Wilmac’s Pharmacy
for nearly a year before the rob-
bery. The Tribune was told yes-
terday that he will be sorely
missed by the community in the

Bahamas joins Haiti justice system delegation

@ By RUPERT MISSICK Jr
Senior Staff Reporter

THE BAHAMAS will be a
part of an international delega-
tion deployed to make recom-
mendations to rebuild the jus-
tice system of Haiti, it was
announced yesterday.

The delegation consists of six
experts from Sweden,
Cameroon, Belgium, the United

States and the Bahamas, who
will be represented by Dr Peter
Maynard, former head of the
Bahamas Bar Association.
The members of the delega-
tion were assembled by the
International Legal Assistance
Consortium (ILAC).
The purpose of the mission
is to conduct an overview of the
current state of the Haitian judi-
cial system and to propose and

Nassau and Bahama Islands’ Leading Newspaper

prioritise the necessary projects
for its reconstruction.

Foreign Affairs Minister Fred
Mitchell said during his address
to the UN Security Council on
Thursday that the “traditional
clamour” for a change in gov-
ernment is once again being
raised.

He pointed out to the council
that instability has an adverse
effect on Haiti’s neighbours,

including the Bahamas and
Jamaica, as it spurs illegal immi-
gration and increases the traf-
ficking of small arms and drugs.

One year ago, CARICOM
leaders expressed grave concern
about the deteriorating politi-
cal and security conditions in
Haiti. With Haitian agreement
and international support, the

Hopes for
KONI
ports move

@ By PAUL G.
TURNQUEST
Tribune Staff Reporter and
NATARIO McKENZIE

THE recent announce-
‘ment by Prime minister Per-
ry Christie to move the con-
tainer ports from their East
Bay Street location to anoth-
er site on the island is being
hailed by officials as one of
many projects that they hope
will transform Nassau into a
more beautiful port of entry.

According to Garth
Rolle, the port manager at

. Tropical Shipping, one of the :

major shipping companies in -

| New Providence, two

options have actually been
proposed as to the relocation
of the container ports.

“Right now I believe it is
between Arawak Cay and
the southern end of the
island. Although Arawak
Cay will only be an immedi-
ate. intermediary until a
proper facility can be con-
structed to accommodate the
shipping companies,” he ;
said.

Charles Klonaris, the
chairman of the Nassau
Tourism and Development

‘ Board, said that the main
objective in moving the con-
tainer terminals is one of
many projects that he hopes
will transfer the city into the
most desirable port destina-
tion in the Caribbean.

Harbour

“We have recommended
ideas and presented them to
the government for the
transformation and beautifi-
cation of the city. The think-
ing now is more focused on
Clifton Pier where the power
station is. It won’t be an
extension out, but rather a
cutting inland to create a
harbour,” he said.

Shipping officials state
that this new harbour could
easily run the government
into more than $150 to $200
million but stated that the
move will solve many of the
issues regarding the backlog
of traffic in the Bay Street
area,

“If you remove the con-
tainers and the big lorries,
and create proper stops for
jitneys, just think of all the
traffic that will be eliminat-
ed. We will have a cleaner
environment and a more liv-
able city. More room for
growth in terms of hotels
and condos, as one thing will
lead to the next,” said Mr
Klonaris.

Mr Rolle stated that
although no definite location
had been approved, the tem-
porary relocation to Arawak
Cay will be ideal to facilitate
the shipping companies and
to also alleviate the move-
ment of containers directly
along Bay Street.

“Even if the government
said that we have to relocate
tomorrow, the actual move
would not be until like 12
months later, as the required

_ infrastructure needs to be in
place, like storage facilities
and proper cement work for
the grounds,” he said.

out over firing from her post

atone
hospital atter
stabbing

@ By PACO NUNEZ
Tribune Staff Reporter

A FRENCH-Canadian
tourist is in serious condition
in hospital after being stabbed
during a robbery attempt,
police report.

The incident is one of four
armed robberies that
occurred on Thursday, one
of which left a 28-year-old
security officer dead.

The injured tourist was yes-
terday identified by police as
44-year-old Luke Leiviella
who was staying at the Holi-
day Inn on West Bay Street
-with his brother Francisco
Leiviella.

Police Superintendent
Hulan Hanna said that the
robbery occurred just outside
the hotel at around 8pm.

“They were conversing
with a security officer, it was
reported, when two persons
confronted them. One was
armed with a knife,” Mr Han-
na said.

He said that when the two
men attempted to rob the
tourists, one of the brothers
resisted.

“As a result Luke was
stabbed about the upper
body,” he said.

Mr Leiviella was taken to
hospital, where he is said to
be in serious but stable con-
dition.

The suspects escaped from
the scene, but police are fol-
lowing “some good leads,”
Mr Hanna said.

Police are also searching
for two men who robbed the
Oakes Field branch of Ken-
tucky Fried Chicken just
before 8pm on Thursday.

Masks

According to Mr Hanna,
the two men entered the
establishment pulling masks
over their faces.

Mr Hanna said the men,
both of whom were armed,
demanded cash from staff.

He said they escaped with’
an undisclosed amount of
money, fleeing over a fence
which separates the KFC:
from an adjacent gas station.

According to Mr Hanna,
police have not ruled out the
possibility that these suspects
are connected to an another
armed robbery at Wilmac’s

- Pharmacy on Poinciana Drive
only minutes before.

This incident left security
officer Richard Petty dead.

As a result of another
armed robbery on Thursday
morning, a 28-year-old
Pinewood Gardens man and
26-year-old man from Nas-
sau village man have been
arrested.

The two men are suspected
of robbing Percy’s Web Cafe
on Carmichael Road of a
large amount of cash.

“The information is that a
female employee went on the
outside to throw out some
garbage.

_ “She was accosted by a
heavy built male who was
clad in a black tam and green
jacket,” Mr Hanna said.

The man reportedly pro-
duced a weapon and ordered
the female back inside.

“He demanded cash. He
was handed over a number
of envelopes containing
cash,” Mr Hanna said.

The man then fled over a
nearby wall and got into a
grey Nissan Maxima.

“This vehicle was later
intercepted in the Faith
Avenue area and two males
were arrested,” Mr Hanna
said.

He said that police also
retrieved a firearm, “and a
large sum of money believed
to be the property of Percy’s
Web Cafe.”

FORMER Registrar Gen-
eral Elizabeth Thompson
yesterday spoke out on her
firing from her post, calling
the incident “a new low” for
Bahamian society.

Ms Thompson, who was
terminated from her position
as Registrar General on
Monday evening, said that
she has not as yet been given
a reason for her firing
“either verbally or in writ-
ing.”

On yesterday’s edition of
the radio talk show Issues of
the Day, Ms Thompson said
that she was merely told that
her three-year contract was
being terminated, effective
January 10, 2004, and that
she will be given one mon-
th’s pay in lieu of notice.

Contract

Ms Thompson, a single
mother and attorney by pro-
fession, said : “I was given
no indication that I did any-
thing wrong. I was given no
indication either verbally or
in writing that I breached
any provisions of my con-
tract.

“There was no indication
that there was a problem
with my performance.”

She conceded that there
was some friction with line
staff and supervisors when
she first assumed the post of
Registrar General on August
3, 2004, but pointed out that
soon after she was able to
establish a rapport with the

Not guilty
plea to
drugs charge

@ By TIFFANY GRANT












































A RESIDENT of South
Beach pleaded not guilty in
Magistrate’s Court yester-
day to possession of dan-
gerous drugs with the intent
to supply.

It was alleged that Mario
Livingston Taylor, 31, was
found in possession of
cocaine with intent to supply
another.

He was granted bail in the
sum of $10,000 and is
required to report to the
South Beach Police Station
every Monday and Friday
before 6pm.

The case was adjourned
to September 20.

Court

Also appearing in court
on drug charges was Romeo
Burrows, alias Romeo
Smith. The 24-year-old
pleaded not guilty to pos-
session of dangerous drugs.

Court records allege that
on January 12, Burrows was
found in possession of Indi-
an hemp.

He was granted $1,000
bail and will reappear in
court on September 20.

In other court news,
Terell Murray pleaded not
guilty to threats of death. It
was alleged that Murray
threatened Kristy Miller
with death.

Bail was set at $3,500 and
the defendant is expected to
reappear in court on June 2.
Michael Russell, 32, pleaded
not guilty to assault. It was

“that I have never experi-
enced before in my profes-
sional career.”

Ms Thompson also con-
firnied that there were con-
cerns regarding her adminis-
tration methods.

“There was criticism, as a
leader you expect criticism,”
she noted.

The former Registrar
General, however, explained
that from a staff of around
70 people, “five or six at the
most” raised concerns about
herconduct.

“Some people were dissat-
isfied. When I came in I
tried as much as possible to
ensure that the rules of pub-
lic service were followed.

“Perhaps I was a little

overzealous, but there came...
a point where. they realised -

that I had their best inter-
ests at heart. The majority
or persons embraced what I
was trying to achieve,” she
said.

Naming some of the
changes she made when she
took office in August, Ms
Thompson said that she

blocked free access to free

long distance telephone
calls.

She explained that she
implemented the use of
codes for the employees to
access the switch board with.

She also said that she cre-
ated a list of all marriage
licences that were deferred
by her office, so that couples
could not go to other reg-
istry offices in the Bahamas
to apply for a marriage per-
mit.

“I stopped the haemor-

sales’ concerns



CONCERNS have been raised that some Bahamian fish-
ermen may be selling the banned Nassau Grouper illegally.

Reports reaching The Tribune revealed that it may be
possible to purchase grouper from the homes of local fish-
ermen simply by “naming your price at the dock.”

One fisherman told a customer that if she wanted grouper
all she had to do was arrange with a fisherman at the dock
and they could get the fish from their home. “You can’t
sell it at the dock but if you ask round and they could help

The Nassau Grouper is the only type of the fish protected
under the ban and although it may be sold if it was caught
and frozen before the ban’s date - December 16, it cannot be

Yesterday, the Deputy Director of the Department of
Fisheries Edison Delevaux, said Bahamian fishermen seem |
to be complying with the grouper ban. He said that many
fishermen and vendors stocked up on grouper before the
ban, took it home and froze it.

“That may be the grouper they are referring to,” he said.

Possession

He told The Tribune that since the ban, which lasts until
February 16, the department had only had one report of
someone in possession of the Nassau Grouper.

He said there are several other varieties of grouper includ-
ing Gag, Red, Mulloway, Red Hind, Rock Hind, Black,
Yellowfin and Scamp which may be what vendors at docks

He reminded the public that the law says that any person’
found illegally in possession of the fish can be charged,
including fishermen who catch the fish, vendors or buyers.

Fines are $3,000, one year imprisonment or both depend-
ing on the extent of the violation.

that the question if she was
only the Registrar General
in name also arose on
numerous occasions.

“The question is, was I
even the leader, the Regis-
trar General, was I allowed
to function?” she said.

She said that her adminis-
trative powers “were
clipped.”

“T was not supported in
my decision with regards to

Opinion

Ms Thompson said that in
her opinion her termination
could have been handled in
a different manner and not
with the “great disrespect”
in which it was.

“I feel:hard-done, hurt
and ignored.

“We should, as a Christ-
ian nation, not deal with
each other in such an

unchristian way,” she said.
The public first heard of

-Ms Thompson’s termination

when she was verbally fired
on December 9, 2004.

This information resulted
in staff at the Registrar Gen-
eral’s office walking off their
jobs in protest.

Following Ms Thompson’s

day, the Ministry of Finan-
cial Services and Invest-

‘Wheelie’ tribute
at biker’s funera

MOTOR-CYCLISTS performed “wheelies” in a Nassau.
cemetery yesterday as a salute to a fellow biker who died in a
road crash two weeks ago.

The bikers “pranced” on one wheel as Patrick “Rock Man”
Lewis was laid to rest at Woodlawn Cemetery with more than

‘250 mourners looking on.

“Tt was a moving tribute to a popular man,” a lifelong friend

said afterwards. “It was their way of showing their respect.”
e
Killed

Mr Lewis, 47, was killed on January 2 when his motor-cycle
spun out of control at Coral Harbour roundabout. He and a
group of bikers had been travelling in a group along the airport
road.

A truck driver with a passion for motor-cycles, Mr Lewis
was also “saluted” by fellow truckers who drove past St Barn-
abas Church, where his funeral was held, blowing their horns.

Housing Minister Shane Gibson, Garden Hills MP Veronica
Owens and Nassau Bikes Association official Germaine Davis
were among mourners.

Childhood friend Rodney Moncur told the congregation that
mM Lewis was a “warrior of steel” and “fearless freedom fight-

r” during his years as a political activist.
nal he said he was a tireless champion in the fight for justice.
Mr Lewis, a father of one, died instantly when his machine
skidded on gravel, sending him headlong onto the roundabout.
He was not wearing a crash helmet at the time, according to
friends. i

Wise islanders shun modern man

OF ALL the images to come forth from
the great tsunami of 2004, most of them of
suffering and catastrophe, consider that of
the naked Sentinelese tribesman on a
remote Andaman island taking a shot with
his bow and arrow at a would-be rescuing
helicopter. It reminded me somehow of
the lone Chinese man standing before a
column of tanks on their way to shoot
down the protesters at Tienanmen Square.

As the Chinese man seemed to symbol-

ize the human spirit standing up to brute
force, so did the Andaman islander sym-
bolize for me a contrarian protest: No,
we don’t want to be rescued, we don’t
want your helicopter here, we don’t want
cellphones or television or movies, we
don’t want doctors or psychiatrists, we
don’t need counselling, we are not upset
being left behind by globalization, and we
are not even interested in wearing clothes.
Most of all, we are not interested in you,
SO go away!
' [had read of these remote tribes, Negri-
tos as small as pygmies, who inhabit those
islands and have been warding off mod-
ernization since Marco Polo dropped in on
them in the 13th century. Anthropologists
say they have been isolated from the rest
of humanity for 30,000 to 60,000 years,
and little is known of their languages’ or
their gods.

Just after the wave hit, those in the out-
side world who knew of them worried that
their few- hundreds might have been all
wiped out — a last living link to the Pale-
olithic past. It turned out, however, that
they were quite well, thank you, and said
they didn’t need any of the billions in aid
that are pouring into the region in the
wake of the disaster.

It has been speculated that they, living
closer to nature, might have been able to
anticipate the tsunami, and therefore
moved out of its way in time. They may

have been able to watch the behaviour of .

animals and birds, as creatures are known
to be able to anticipate earthquakes
before any human being can feel the
shock.

Early accounts of them have not been
flattering. Marco Polo said they had the
heads and teeth of dogs — perhaps
because they filed their teeth into sharp
‘points.

The cheerfully racist Victorians were

Bishop Gloria Redd

no kinder. Sir Arthur Conan Doyle, in
“The Sign of the Four,” has Sherlock
Holmes and Dr. Watson encountering an
Andaman islander brought to London by
an escaped convict from the Andaman
penal colony. During a chase on the river
Thames, when Holmes’s boat draws close
to that of the suspects, Watson sees “a
little black man, the smallest I have ever
seen,” with lips writhing back from his
teeth, “which grinned and chattered at us
with half animal fury.”.The fellow takes a
shot at Holmes and Watson with a poi-
soned dart from a blow pipe.

There are very few people left on Earth
who have been so successful at warding
off modernity, a few in the rain forests of
South America, maybe some in the
remote regions of Africa.

As recently as the 1930s a large popu-
lation of men and women living in the
highlands of New Guinea made their first
contact with the modern world when Aus-
tralian gold prospectors stumbled into
their territory.

I have talked to old people in New .

Guinea who could still remember where

they were and what they were doing when -

the news came of the coming of the white
people.

i The photographs these prospeciors took i

of these first contacts show faces filled
with shock, fear, and curiosity. Some of
these island men thought that the white
Australians might be the ghosts of their
dead, and so they asked the Australians
just what the natives of America first
asked Christopher Columbus: Are you
our ancestors?

It is easy to get too romantic about iso-
lated peoples — as I am clearly doing.
Their lives were just as filled with anger,
jealousy, greed, and murder as ours. The
idea of the noble savage was always non-
sense. Human beings are human, whether
they bash each other with arrows or
bombs.

Yet I find it impossible not to admire
the man with the bow and arrow taking a
shot at the helicopter, as his literary pre-
decessor took a shot at Sherlock Holmes,
and the resilience of his people in resisting
the relentless march of modernity.

Salaries and
allowances
of our MPs

EDITOR, The Tribune.

I WROTE a letter to the
editor of The Tribune dated
December 9, 2004, and it
appeared in The Tribune on
December 11, 2004. The
heading over the letter read:
“Revisit MP’s salaries and
allowances”. The letter
(directed to The Prime Minis-
ter) called on the PM to take
the necessary steps to cause
legislation to be brought to
Parliament which would have
the effect of increasing the
salaries of Members of Parlia-
ment from $28,000 to $52,000
annually. And also to cause
the $1,500 a month office
allowance to be increased sig-
nificantly also.

’ The editor’s note accom-

_ panying the letter effectively

disagreed with the positions
taken in the letter. I encourage
your readers to read the letter
as well as the editor’s note.
Be that as it may, while I
appreciate the comments for-
warded, I think it is incum-

bent upon me to address the-

editor’s concerns as they relate
to the reasons why an increase
is not warranted:

(1) Non Cabinet MP’s usu-
ally hold second jobs — It is
my humble opinion that an
MP should be so busy con-
ducting the people’s business
that he would not have the
time to devote to anything
else. MP’s represent the inter-
ests of sometimes more than
3000 constituents. I would
think that that kind of repre-

. Sentation would be very
. demanding; even spilling over
into private life. And the fact’

that it is common practice for
MP’s in The Bahamas to hold
second jobs in order to sup-
plement their income,
although understandable, does
not mean that it should be
condoned. A candidate in the
2002 general election had the
right idea when she
announced by television that if
she had won the seat, then
Member of Parliament would

have been her only job. How- .

ever, she lost.

(2) The House of Assembly
meets only once a week — In
my humble opinion, it seems
surprisingly naive of the editor
to believe that speaking in

- Parliament is the only thing

that these men and women do
in their capacity as MP. I am
sure the editor is able to
appreciate that extensive

research has to be conducted
to be able to competently
speak on any particular topic
or piece of legislation before
the House. That takes time.
What else the editor should
have been able to appreciate is
the different meetings that an
MP would have to attend in
Nassau, the Family Islands,
and internationally. All a part
of conducting the people’s
business. That takes time.
Furthermore, the 3000 plus
constituents would have con-
cerns which the MP would
have to give a good ear to,
and, more importantly,
address. That takes time.
Public speeches, funerals,

weddings, graduations, and ..

any other functions the public
expects him to attend. That
too takes time.

And I’m sure that there are
more time-consuming activi-
ties associated with being an

With all these demands on
his time, the editor should
have been able to appreciate
that the time of an MP is valu-
able and therefore he should
be adequately compensated.

And so, to pigeonhole an
MP’s function as simply

attending House sittings is dis-

playing an uncharacteristic
level of ignorance.

(3) Long holidays — Where
the editor and I are able to
agree is that House sessions
might be.too short and subse-

quently, holidays might be too ‘

long. The business of the peo-
ple must be done.

The’ editor included at the
beginning of the comments an
opinion that any aspiring MP

should not expect so much in,

terms of salary payments. But,
my own assessment of the
political landscape in The
Bahamas reveals _ that,
notwithstanding the present
salary allowances, only the
financially secure persons are
attracted to the office. That
should not be the case. Who is
to say poor and middle-class
Bahamians would not have
anything to contribute to the
forward development of The
Bahamas, even if they are
labelled and ostracised as
being “on the other side”.
And it is this labelling and

Temple Christian High School

ostracisation which would cat-
apult persons back to poverty
if they should lose their seat.

Don’t you think it prudent for |

the government to make pro-
vision for that eventuality for
someone who chooses to serve
their country at that level?
Finally, the editor did not
comment on what the govern-
ment should provide for MPs
when matriculating to that
office. Does silence mean con-
sent? I certainly hope so.

ONCE again the.
Bahamian people are being
held hostage and now it’s
by the gas companies.
These companies that con-
tinue to strike when they
can’t get their way do not
seem to realise that no
company can survive with-
out customers.

I feel they are being
totally unreasonable by not
accepting an increase of

Bahamian public to take a

stand and send.a strong‘);

message that we will not
tolerate a strike every time
these companies do not get
what they want.

I for one will be boy-
cotting all the gas compa-
nies that are on this strike
and only patronise the
companies that are not and
I hope that every Bahami-

_an being affected by this
charade would do the
same.

It’s time for the public to |
get back some sort of pow-
er and not be held hostage -

Let’s see how long their

Hila who il te

suspect KUL

& By CARA BRENNEN
Tribune Staff Reporter

JOHN Ferguson, Super-
intendent of the Complaints
and Corruption unit of the
Royal Bahamas Police
Force, has vowed that the
department will take a
strong stand against officers
who brutalise suspects in
custody.

Mr Ferguson said he was
unaware of complaints being
brought to the unit last year
against officers for that
offence directly, but that
they had investigated claims
of brutality of persons who
felt that they were injured
in the course of being arrest-
ed.

Cases

-When The Tribune told
him of cases of persons
being arraigned in court who
claimed that they had had
billys shoved down their
throats, been kicked in the
stomach and groin and had
plastic bags pulled over their
head while being questioned
in custody, Mr Ferguson was’
adamant that Police Com-
missioner Paul Farquharson
would not tolerate that kind
of behaviour.

He said that his unit
would vigorously investigate
any such claims and if they
turned out to have merit,
| the officers involved would
have to face disciplinary
action from the Police Tri-
bunal which rules on such
matters. He said that
depending on the extent of
the abuse, the Tribunal
would either give the officer



an official reprimand or if |

necessary seek the advice of
the Attorney General’s
office or turn it over to a
criminal court.

Mr Ferguson said “con-
stant training and retrain-
ing” is the only way to
encourage:and enforce that
police officers treat suspects
humanely.

Oasis workers

Reporter

FREEPORT - Workers at
the Royal Oasis Resort demon-
strated for a second consecu-
tive day at the resort on Friday
for six hours to pressure the
government for assistance and
answers regarding the true sta-
tus of the resort.

There have been rumours
among employees that the oper-
ators have abandoned the prop-
erty, which was closed for
reconstruction following the
hurricanes in September.

At 7am, workers assembled
at Ranfurly Circus, where they
picketed with placards until
1pm at the resort’s entrance.

Resort

. Driftwood, the operators of
the resort, was forced to lay off
more than 1,000 workers with-
out pay at the Crowne Plaza
and Sunspree resorts and casino
due to extensive damage caused
by the storms.

While some of the employ-
ees were retained for the recon-
struction phase, many remained
jobless. And, now that recon-

struction work has ceased for ~

are unable to pay their bills.

Many are concerned about
whether the resort will re-open

“Rumour has it that Mr (Sol)
Kerzner will be buying the
property,” said one worker.
“We would like the government
to come forth and give us a def-
inite answer so that we would

I am extremely vex with the Batelco auto-
mated phone system. Have you ever called that
incredibly annoying main number? They ask
you to spell out the person you’re trying to
reach. First their first name.and then their last
name. How in the world am I supposed to know
who’s the assistant director or his assistant’s

niently to someone’s mailbox that is conve-
niently full! Lord knows I want to reach through
the phone sometimes and ‘just grab that per-
son I know is just sitting there laughing as you
get transferred round and round the place.

Fed up with Batelco.





























I vex about all this traffic in the mornings. I sit
in traffic for almost an hour trying to get from
home to work! So I can’t even sleep until like
7.30am. I have to be up at 6am to try to be to
work before 9am. That is crazy! Why-all these
cars in Nassau anyway?

Matson Delancy, of Stapeldon.

What is up with these positions in govern-
ment? Why is there an under secretary and an
assistant secretary, who also has a first secretary
to them. They have more helpers than I could
shake a stick at. So why is it that still govern-
ment can’t get anything done on time or in
good order? Why is service at these offices so
horrible if they have all these “high status” peo-
ple working there? How much do they actually
get paid by the way, because I’ll be damned if
I’m paying for six secretaries to just be sitting by
the phone to tell me that my minister is out to
lunch or “out of office.” I could tell them he out
of office, cause I just saw him down at Fish Fry.
Next time I need to ask them what in the world
they. doing for a change. I once called a ministry
and asked for the minister, who naturally was-
n’t there, so I asked for his secretary. She was-
n’t in. The permanent secretary was out, the
assistant secretary was not at her desk, and they
couldn’t find the under secretary. I had to ask
the lady who actually workin in the office! We
need a list of all these persons with their quali-
fications, because we all know that half of them
are political appointees who just sit around

name? Then it always transfers you conve-.



waiting for pay day anyway. We need to weed
them out now.

A fellow government employee.

I am vex with the way people are, being han-
dled with the government loans programme. I
spent weeks, no months trying to get this loan,
only to be short changed on by the bank |
charges. They tell you its $10,000 but I ended up
with $9,600 something dollars. Now if you real-
ly struggling to go off to school that $400 dif-
ference could really hurt you. And now unfor-
tunately I can’t make it to school this semester
so I have to deal with paying back this loan
that I haven’t even used yet.

Why You Happy?
I happy with the whole world right now. My
work sending me off to school! Finally the
papers reach in.

so I guess they don’t want noth-
ing to do with us,” she said.
Dennis Britton, a casino
worker and president of the
gaming union, and Kendal Pin-
der, spokesmen for the work-
ers, met with Tourism Minister
Obie Wilchcombe, Labour Min-
ister Vincent Peet and Social
Service Minister Melanie Grif-
fin on Thursday evening to try
to get some answers and assis-
tance on behalf of workers.
Because they were unable to
get any definite answers or
assistance from the ministers,
Mr Britton said they continued
with the demonstration on Fri-

day.

“We wanted to know the sta-
tus of the resort or whether it
will be open in April,” he said.

If the resort fails to re-open in
April, Mr Britton said the gov-
ernment should give monetary
assistance for unemployed

_ workers.

“They should be able to pro-
vide some, monetary funding

suchas unemployment pay. [tis
done in the Caribbean and US

and we need to do that for citi-
zens in the Bahamas,” he
stressed. et

Families

Mr Britton said they have
suggested that government give
a stipend of $200 during the
period until the resort is opened
so that workers can provide
properly for their families.

He said that in the event the
hotel does not re-open soon,
workers should be paid off and
given first preference to come
back when the resort opens. ‘

“We could not get a clear
answer from them as to who
owns the hotel. Or, what really
is being done to the hotel or
when operations would resume.

“We were told Driftwood still

-owns it. However, we heard

rumours that some other com-
pany in the US and other enti-
ties from the Bahamas own it,”
he said.

David Buddemeyer, presi-
dent of Driftwood, purchased
the resort property in May 2000
for $25 million. Driftwood Ven-

tures, which is an independent
hotel management company
based in West Palm Beach,
Florida, owns and operates nine
hotels in the United States,
Hawaii, and the Bahamas.

The company also owns and
operates the Holiday Inn and
Astoria Hotel in Nassau, and
Holiday Inn Sunspree on Par-
adise Island.

Mr Britton said that workers
in Freeport deserve to know
what is going on with the resort
in Grand Bahama because they
are under great financial strain.

Answers

Kendal Pinder said it is gov-
ernment's responsibility to seek
answers from the owners and
management as to when work-
ers can get back to work.

“If there is no definite date
for when the resort would open
we would like for government
to seek a severance package for
workers and give first consid-
eration for jobs if it re-opens,”
he said.

In the meantime, the Ministry .
of Social Services has promised
to set up an office so employees
can bring in copies of their bills

so that an assessment can be

conducted.

Mr Britton said it does not
mean they will get assistance.

“We understand that some
workers have been getting
rental assistance from Social
Services. I have seen a voucher
of $30 from Social Services.
What can that get you in Grand
Bahama with one food store
chain and with prices so high?”

“The government needs to
give workers a stipend and let
them decide what they will do
with the money,” he said.

Man struck
by vehicle

A MAN narrowly
escaped becoming the coun-
try’s fourth traffic fatality of
the new year when he was
struck by a vehicle on
Thursday night.

According to reports a
pedestrian became the vic-
tim of a hit-and-run at
9.35pm while walking east
on Bar 20, in the Jerome
Avenue area.

Supt Burkie Wright, in
charge of the Traffic Divi-
sion, told The Tribune yes-
terday that the man was
struck by an unknown vehi-
cle and sustained “severe
injuries to the head and suf-
fered a broken left leg.”

“The ambulance took him
to Princess Margaret Hos-
pital where he is in serious,
but stable condition,” said
Mr Wright.

The superintendent said
that police had not yet been
able to talk to the man to
ascertain his identity, but
believed his first name to be
Richard.

lection of children’s rights the
force of international law and
is considered the most wide-
ly accepted international
human rights instrument.

Scheduled

The 10 countries scheduled
to present reports at the 38th
session are among the 192
that have ratified or acceded
to the Convention. Only
Somalia and the United
States of America have not
ratified the Convention. State
Parties are expected to send
representatives to the Com-
mittee to present periodic
reports on national efforts
advancing children’s rights in
their respective countries.

“The Convention on the
Rights of the Child is a Unit-
ed Nations agreement that
spells out the range of rights
that children everywhere are
entitled to,” said Miss Zoni-
cle. “It sets basic standards
for children’s well-being at
various stages of their devel-
opment. Countries that ratify.
the Convention report regu-
larly to the Expert Commit-
tee on the Rights of the Child
as to the steps they have tak-
en to comply with the provi-
sions of the Convention”.

The Convention is the first
universal, legally binding
code of child rights in history.

It brings together, in one
treaty, all the relevant child
rights issues rather than hav-
ing them scattered among
multiple international
treaties. Aare

It contains 54 articles, each
of which outlines a different
type of right to ensure the
protection of children glob-
ally. These include Survival,
Development, Protection and
Participation rights.

A United Nations
spokesperson said while the

. Convention upholds these

basic rights, it does not
infringe on the rights of par-
ents to decide what is best

. for their children.

‘Instead, it specifically states
that governments shall make
every effort to keep families
intact. and shall provide sup-
port and assistance to par-
ents in fulfilling their prima-
ry responsibility with regards
to the “upbringing and
development” of their chil-
dren.

Once a country ratifies the

‘Convention, it assumes legal

obligation to implement the
rights recognised in the
treaty. Countries incur an
additional obligation to sub-
mit regular reports to.the
Committee on how those
rights are being implement-
ed.

_ Information

To meet their reporting
obligation, States Parties
must provide an initial report

two years after joining and.

every five years thereafter.
In addition to the govern-
ment report, the Committee
receives information on a
country’s human rights situa-
tion from other sources
including non-governmental
organisations, United
Nations agencies, academic
institutions, the media and

inter- -governmental organisa-

tions.

The Committee examines
the report together with gov-
ernment representatives and

@ MINISTER of Social Services and
Community Development Melanie Griffin

based on the dialogue, pub-
lishes its concerns and rec-
ommendations that ‘are
referred to as “concluding
observations.”

Miss Zonicle said The
Bahamas report will be
organised under the topics
identified by the Expert
Committee such as General
Measures of Implementation;
Civil Rights and Freedoms;
Family Environment and
Alternative Care; Basic
Health: .and :7: Welfare;
Education, Leisure: and:Cul-
tural Activities; Special Pro-
tection and General Princi-
ples - a commitment to
the prevention of discrimina-
tion.

The delegation will high-

the Parliament of the
Bahamas with regards to The
Early Childhood Care Act,
2004, The Status of Children
Act, 2002, The Inheritance
Act, 2002 and The Employ-
ment Act of 2001.

The group will also apprise

advancement of children’s
rights and care, among them,

Music star: Haiti too
re for elections

ml PORT-AU- PRINCE, Haiti

CONCLUDING a visit to his native Haiti, hip hop star
Wyclef Jean said Thursday the Caribbean country is too
divided and violent to hold credible elections, according to

General elections are planned for later this year. Gov-
ernment and U.N. peacekeeping mission officials insist they
will do all they can to ensure the vote takes place. Haiti's Par-
liament became powerless last year when a failure to hold
elections because of instability left legislative seats empty.

Dialogue
"Unless there is some form of heavy national dialogue
where there is security and people feel safe, it's going to be

hard to go through with a really positive election,"
year-old singer said in an interview with The Associated

ion efforts

education; the establishment
of the National Commission
on Special Education; the
Urban Renewal Programme
and the Ministry of Health’s
Neuro-developmental clinic
for at-risk babies.

Other avenues for discus-
sion will focus on the Royal
Bahamas Police Force’s Spe-
cial Unit for Missing and
Exploited Children, the
National Drug Plan, parent-
ing programmes for
inner-city areas and the
establishment of the child-
friendly rape suites, among
others.

Adopted

The General Assembly of
the United Nations unani-
mously adopted the Conven-
tion on the Rights of the
Child on November 20, 1989,
thirty years after the adop-
tion of the Declaration of the
Rights of the Child. Work on
drafting the Convention
began in 1979, which marked
the initial commemoration of
the International Year of the
Child.

The Convention was made
available for signature on
January 26, 1990, and entered
into force seven months later
on September 2, 1990.

The Bahamas ratified the
Convention in 1991.

Ratifying the Convention
entails reviewing national
legislation to ensure it con-
forms with the provisions of
the treaty.

Jean said a dialogue including businessmen, gang leaders
and politicians, is essential in addressing recent violence
that has been plaguing Haiti's capital and forced him to
postpone a "concert for peace" planned for last month.

He also visited schools in and around the capital, where he
talked to children about the importance of national unity.

Amnesty International
and the death penalty

AST week we
looked at the issue

of the death penalty and
Amnesty International’s
opposition to its use as
punishment, for any crime.
It is the ultimate denial of
human rights, the right to
life. This week we will look
at other facts concerning
‘he death penalty.
More than 40 countries
1ave abolished the death
venalty for all crimes since
990. They include coun-
ties in Africa (examples
iclude Angola, Céte
Ivoire, Mozambique,
snegal, South Africa), the
mericas (Canada,
araguay), Asia and the
acific (Bhutan, Hong
ong, Samoa, Turk-
enistan) and Europe and
e South Caucasus
Armenia, Azerbaijan,
yprus, Georgia, Poland,
:rbia and Montenegro,
kraine).

loves to Reintroduce the
Death Penalty

O nce abolished, the
death penalty is

Idom reintroduced. Since
85, over 50 countries
ave abolished the death
enalty in law or, having
reviously abolished it for
rdinary crimes, have gone
n to abolish it for all
rimes.

During the same period
mly four abolitionist coun-
ries reintroduced the death

yenalty. One of them -.

Nepal - has since abolished
the death penalty again.
One, the Philippines,

cesumed executions but. has. .

since’ suspended them.
There have been no execu-
tions in the other two
(Gambia, Papua New
Guinea).

Death Sentences
and Executions

D uring 2003, at
least 1,146 prison-

érs were executed in 28
countries and at least 2,756
people were sentenced to
death in 63 countries.
These figures include only

cases known to Amnesty
International. The true fig-
ures are certainly higher.

' In 2003, 84 per cent of all
known executions took
place in China, Iran, the
USA and Vietnam. In Chi-
na, limited and incomplete
records available to
Amnesty International at
the end of the year indicat-
ed that at least 726 people
were executed, but the true
fizure was believed to be
much higher: a senior Chi-
nese legislator suggested in
March, 2004, that China
executes “nearly 10,000”
people each year. At least
108 executions were carried
out in Iran. Sixty-five peo-
ple were executed in the
USA. At least 64 people
were executed in Vietnam.

vention on Human Rights
and the Convention on the
Rights of the Child all have
provisions to this effect.
More than 110 countries
whose laws still provide for
the death penalty for at
least some offences have
laws specifically excluding
the execution of child
offenders or may be pre-
sumed to exclude such exe-
cutions by being parties to
one or another of the above
treaties. A small number of
countries, however, have
continued to execute child
offenders. Oe a es

Eight countries since
1990 are known to have
executed prisoners who
were under 18 years old at
the time of the crime - Chi-
na, the Democratic Repub-
lic of the Congo, Iran,
Nigeria, Pakistan, Saudi
Arabia, the USA and

Yemen. China, Pakistan -

and Yemen have raised the
minimum age to 18 in law,
and Iran is reportedly in
the process of doing so.
The USA has executed
more child offenders than
any other country (19 since
1990).

Amnesty International
recorded four executions of
child offenders in 2004, one
in China and three in Iran.

The Deterrence Argument

S cientific studies have
consistently failed to
find convincing evidence
that the death penalty
deters crime more effec-
tively than other punish-
ments.

relation between the death
penalty and homicide rates,
conducted for the United
Nations in 1988 and updat-

“it is not prudent to accept
the hypothesis that capital
punishment deters murder
to a marginally greater
extent than does the threat
and application of the sup-

not fear sudden and serious

crime if they reduce their

Dependable, Reliable Quality

Recent crime figures
from abolitionist countries

fail to show that abolition |

has harmful effects. In
Canada, the homicide rate
per 100,000 population fell
from a peak of 3.09 in 1975,
the year before the aboli-
tion of the death penalty
for murder, to 2.41 in 1980,
and since then it has
declined further. In 2002,
26 years after abolition, the
homicide rate was 1.85 per
100,000 population, 40 per
cent lower than in 1975.

Execution of the Innocent

s long as. the
death penalty is
maintained, the risk of exe-
cuting the innocent can

never be eliminated.

Since 1973, 117 prisoners
have been released from
death row in the USA, after
evidence emerged of their
innocence of the crimes for
which they were sentenced
to death. There were five °
such cases in 2004.

Some had come close to
execution after spending
many years under sentence
of death. Recurring fea-
tures in their cases include
prosecutorial or police mis-
conduct; the use of unreli-
able witness testimony,
physical evidence, or con-
fessions; and inadequate
defence representation.
Other US prisoners have
gone to their deaths despite
serious doubts over their
guilt.

The then Governor of the.
US state of Illinois, George
Ryan, declared a moratori-
um on executions in Janu-
ary, 2000. His decision fol-
lowed the exoneration of
the 13th death row prisoner
found to have been wrong-
fully convicted in the state
since the USA resumed
executions in 1977. During
the same period, 12 other
Illinois prisoners had been
executed.

In January, 2003, Gover-
nor Ryan pardoned four
death row prisoners and
commuted all 167 other
death sentences in Illinois.

W ITNESSING histo-
ry as it is being

made is a unique experience '

that not too many people are

ever privileged to enjoy in

their lifetime.

Thus, such was our good for-
tune this past Wednesday to
have attended an historic cele-
bration in the St Cecelia con-
stituency, at which the thor-
oughfare formerly known as
Exuma Street was officially
renamed Amos Ferguson

‘Street.

Located in the bowels of
Over-the-Hill, the occasion
highlighted the Government’s
determination to commemo-
rate and perpetuate the cul-
tural contribution of a hum-
ble, but extremely gifted,
native son who has gained
international acclaim as one of
this country’s greatest artists.

Such acclaim has brought.
worldwide recognition to the

Commonwealth of The

- Bahamas.

The uniqueness of Mr Fer-
guson’s style lies in his. tech-
nique, which features the use
of house-paint on cardboard.

. In many instances, the paint is

applied with common objects,
including twigs from trees of
various sizes that form a series
of dots.

Mr Ferguson reportedly
does not recall when he first
began to paint pictures. How-
ever, he said that the ideas for
his themes come by “Divine
inspiration”. Most of his paint-
ings feature religious themes.
Others depict historical, nature
and cultural scenes.

The event was jointly spon-
sored by the Ministry of
Youth, Sports and Culture and

‘the Ministry of Public Works steno amie
resides not to far from the res-

and Utilities. Following a mag-
nificent rendition of our
National Anthem by Ms Pier-
rise Saunders, a member of
both the National Youth Choir
and the Choir of the College of

. The Bahamas, the invocation

was then given by the Rev
Charles W Saunders, pastor of
Salem Union Baptist Church,
the worship home of the hon-
ouree Mr Amos Ferguson.

In thanking God for the life
and talent of this distinguished
artist, Rev Saunders noted Mr
Ferguson’s progressive devel-
opment in his ultimate field of
endeavour from his early
beginnings in The Forest, Exu-
ma, where he was born in 1920,
to his move to Exuma Street,
New Providence, and all that
he has been able to accomplish
since then.

Ne. on the pro-
gramme were intro-

ductory remarks given by Mr
Winston Saunders, chairman
of the National Commission
on Cultural Development. In
his address, Mr Saunders gave
a concise account of Mr Fer-
guson’s professional develop-
ment from his initial stint as a
carpenter and house painter to
his elevation to that of a
renowned artist, whose unique
technique has since brought
him both international fame
and fortune.

Mr Saunders’ remarks pre-
ceded a stirring rendition of
“Great-is Thy Faithfulness”,
one of Mr Ferguson’s favourite
hymns, by Mrs Patricia Biz-
zard. The Hon Bradley
Roberts, Minister of Works
and Utilities, after offering his
personal congratulations to the
honouree, informed the audi-
ence of his ministry’s contri-
bution to the occasion via the
provision of street paving and
the historic signage.

Following a musical selec-
tion, “Everytime I Feel the
Spirit”, by a combined group
from the Cultural Division and
the College of The Bahamas,
who called themselves simply
Friends, the Hon Neville Wis-
dom, Minister Of Youth,
Sports and Culture, then made
his remarks. In his address, the
minister told of his initial intro-
duction to Mr Ferguson, their
relationship since, and his sub-
sequent efforts in making the
honouring ceremony possible.

Mr Wisdom then introduced
Deputy Prime Minister the
Hon Cynthia Pratt, Minister of
National Security and Mem-

ber of Parliament for the St
Cecelia constituency, to deliv-
er the keynote address, which
followed a surprise initial pub-
lic performance by the St
Cecelia Youth Marching Band.

In her remarks, the Deputy
Prime Minister, who still



idence of Mr Amos Ferguson,
gave those in attendance much
food for. thought as she
recounted the life and times of

_ her distinguished constituent.

Included among the many
gems of wisdom that she
uttered was this profound
admonition: “Despite the
international acclaim that Mr
Ferguson had achieved, like
her, he too has elected to
remain in that humble com-
munity and build from within,
rather than move out to more
affluent surroundings and later
refer to it as a ghetto.” She,
too, was most effusive in her
congratulations to Mr Fergu-
son.

The humble being that he
has always been, Mr Ferguson
declined to give any response
to the many tributes accorded
him, deferring instead to be
entertained again by the group
Friends, as they gave a mov-
ing rendition of the late E
Clement Bethel’s song
“Praise”. Afterwards, Cultural
Director Dr Nicolette Bethel,
the late Mr Bethel’s daughter,
gave the vote of thanks.

M: Bernadette
Christie, wife of

Prime Minister the Hon Perry
G Christie, and Lady Mar-
guerite Pindling, widow of the
late former Prime Minister Sir
Lynden O Pindling, then joint-
ly unveiled the new Amos Fer-
guson Street sign, located at
the southern end of the thor-
oughfare. A reception fol-
lowed in tents erected at the
same venue.

What we found to be most
gratifying about the entire
occasion was the fact that the
celebration took place just out-
side the residence of the hon-

- ouree, where the Amos Fer-

guson Art Gallery is also locat-
ed. This wise idea afforded
many of his lifelong neigh-
bours and friends to share in
this historic occasion, at which
one of their very own was the
recipient of a most deserving
honour.

Finally, and for posterity’s
sake, we wish to publish two
items about Mr Amos Fergu-
son, a great Bahamian who is
so internationally known and
acclaimed abroad and yet, per-
haps until this week, was some-
how lesser known and regard-
ed at home.

The first is a copy of a letter

tion’s Anacostia Museum,

interim government was subse-
quently put in place using some
of the elements outlined in the
CARICOM Prior Action Plan.

However, in the view of
CARICOM, the fundamental
tenets of democratic practice
and behaviour had been com-
promised.

* “We cannot vacillate on prin-
ciple since it is essential to our
security as small states. Con-
tinuing violations of the prin-
ciples laid down in the CARI-
COM Charter of Civil Society
have made it impossible for the
community to receive repre-
sentatives of Haiti in its coun-
cils,”. said Mr Mitchell.

Mr Mitchell said that CARI-
COM remains committed to
the people of Haiti. To this end,
the Caribbean Community put
in place mechanisms such as
the Assistance Programme, of
which electoral support is a key

‘DELIVEI

ejectsiin

component.

The minister also had some
strong words to say about
Haiti’s interim administration.

He said that the interim gov-
ernment must be held to inter-
nationally recognised standards
with regard to respect for fun-
damental civil and political
rights, due process and the rule
of law.

“Allegations of egregious
abuses at the hands of the
police must be fully investigat-
ed. The prolonged detention of
Lavalas leaders and activists
without trial or charges, can
only be construed as arbitrary
detention on the basis of polit-
ical affiliation. Such persons
should be released forthwith,”
Mr Mitchell said.

This serious breach of fun-
damental rights, he said, is
exacerbated by a persistent fail-
ure to prosecute the rebels who
led the coup against Mr Aris-
tide for their criminal activity.

“Such an approach also hin-
ders the establishment of an
enabling political climate with-
out which peace and security
cannot be sustained,” the min-
ister said.

The mission on which Dr
Maynard has embarked takes
place until January 22.

ILAC deals with post con-
flict situations and works close-
ly with the UN and its agen-
cies.

In Haiti it will work with the
UN Mission for the stabilisa-
tion of Haiti (MINUSTAH).

Dr Maynard was one of the
funding directors of ILAC and
served on its board of directors
for several years.

ILAC is an umbrella organi-
sation for more than 30 inter-
national law and bar associa-

, tions which between them rep-
resents more than three million
individuals.

Based in Stockholm in Swe-
den,,ILAC has initiated pro-

@ By BRENT STUBBS
Senior Sports Reporter

THE St Andrew’s Hurricanes played their best game of



the-season; but it still wasn’t'good enough to put thenrin:the |.

Bahamas Association of Independent Secondary Schools’
win column.

The hapless Hurricanes couldn’t hold off the weary and
man-shortened Kingsway Academy Saints on Friday at
Kingsway Academy as the Saints marched to a 64-59 over-
time victory.

Kingsway Academy, who improved to 7- 2, had a long day
as their players had to rush from the Thomas A Robinson
Track and Field Stadium where they participated in their
inter-house track and field meet.

But in the extra three minutes, they managed to out-
score St Andrew’s 9-5 to leave the Hurricanes winless in ten
games.

“This was actually the best game my guys played all year,
so it just goes to show that if we had concentrated a little
more, how much better we could be,” said Hurricanes’

coach, Edgar Pickstock.




Pickstock, who was irate with layers so much that he -
was charged with a technical for ii got some relief when
big centre Probese Leo managed to hip in an offensive ©

' rebound just before the buzzer sounded to end the Bante in

regulation.

It was a good redemption for Leo who, only moments. ear- :
lier, missed a big one-handed slam dunk attempt on a ‘fast. |
break. tad 3

But in overtime, the Saints got two consecutive baskets
from Adrian Wilkinson and Clinton Brown and.a pair of.
free throws from Stephen Duncombe Jr to come from a 58-
57 deficit. to snatch a 62-57.

Clock

They were never threatened after that as they worked the
ball around, cutting down time off the clock, to stay ahead
for the win.

While there was some consolation for coach Pidistock and’
his Hurricanes, coach Geno Bullard wasn’t too ETIDTESEEY
with his Saints.

“This was probably the worst game we played all year. P'll

take the win, but I’m not too happy with it,” he said. “T think
our players got too arrogant.

“When you win back-to-back, you get too relaxed. We
just had to shake it off, refocus and get back to the things
that we have been doing all season long.”

- Wilkinson led Kingsway Academy with a side high 17
points. Duncombe had 14; Ira Roker 12; Brown 11 and
Travis Sands chipped in with six.

Did the track meet have that much effect on their ability
to play better than they did?

Duncombe didn’t feel so.

“We came out lackadaisical and took the team for grant-

ed,” he admitted. “Our guys didn’t show our intensity at all.

We felt we could have easily beaten this team.”

Leo ended leading the Hurricanes with a game high 18.
Duran Carey popped two three-pointers to finish with 10;
Dwayne Tucker had nine and K. Williams contributed
eight.

. Despite not playing as well as coach Bullard had antici-
pated, the Saints were still able to aU the Hurricanes
in every facet of the game.

And every time that St Andrew’s made a dent in their
lead, Kingsway Academy were able to come back with a run
of their own to stay out front.

The Saints played a solid defensive game, although they
didn’t shoot as wei! as they are capable of and played like
they wanted the game much more than the Hurricanes.

“But we can’t continue to play like this and expect to win
the big games,” coach Bullard summed up.

As for the Hurricanes, coach Pickstock said they just
have to go back to the drawing board. They came so close
to winning that, maybe in their next game, they will even-
tually succeed.

cKO BULA
CGiumcoitints
f@ LONDON

BRITAIN'S Tim Hen-
| man retired from Davis Cup
tennis on Friday to concen-
trate on winning his first
- Grand Slam, according to
' Associated Press.
; “At this stage in my
3 career the combination of
; the Davis Cup format and
the rigors of the ATP tour
have made it necessary for
me to make this decision,"
Henman said on his Web
site.

"After much deliberation
I'm confident this offers me
the best opportunity to fulfill
some unachieved goals I
have left in the game."

Henman is a four-time
semifinalist at Wimbledon
and has won 11 singles titles
since turning pro in 1993,
but has never reached a
Grand Slam final. He's cur-
rently in Melbourne, Aus-
tralia, preparing for the Aus-
tralian Open which starts
Monday.

Record

Henman had a 36-14
record in Davis Cup. He
played in September's 3-2
loss to Austria in a World
Group playoff. Britain plays
Israel in March in the sec-
ond round of the
Euro/Africa Zone.

"Tim's magnificent record
speaks for itself and while it
is a great loss I completely
understand and respect his
decision to retire from Davis

Cup and focus on the grand |

slams and tour," British
Davis Cup captain Jeremy
Bates said.

Britain hasn't advanced
past the first round of the
top-tier World Group since
1986. The country has see-
sawed between the World
Group and the regional
qualifying groups for 20
years.

Henman's retirement.
from Davis Cup leaves
Canadian-born Greg Rused-
ski as Britain's top-ranked
player for the competition.

"We have a host of tal-
ented players coming
through and despite losing
someone of Tim's caliber, I
remain very optimistic about
the future," Bates said.

Federer
‘confident’
ahead
of Open

@ BASEL, Switzerland

ROGER Federer said Fri-
day that he is confident he can
defend his title in the Aus-
tralian Open, which is set to
begin Monday in Melbourne,
according to Associated Press.

In an interview with his
hometown newspaper Basler
Zeitung, the world tennis No.
1 said he has found an "equi-
librium" on the eve of the sea-
son's first grand slam event.

"I know what I can do _
and J know that I can call on
my strengths when it is neces-
sary,” he told the paper. "I
proved that to myself last
year."

Federer won the Australian
Open, Wimbledon and U.S.
Open in 2004, the first man
since Mats Wilander in 1988
to win three of the season's
four majors.

The 23-year-old Swiss star
said his main challengers for
the Australian Open title will
be 2004 runner-up Marat
Safin, Australian Lleyton
Hewitt, and Americans Andy
Roddick and Andre Agassi,
"if he in fact plays."

Agassi, who has won the
tournament four times, pulled
out of his Kooyong Classic
match Thursday against Andy
Roddick with muscle tight-
ness in his right hip. He is
expected to recover in time
for the start of the Australian
Open.

"I do not expect any sur-
prises" from players outside
the top of the world rankings,
Federer said.

Federer will open against
Fabrice Santoro of France
and could meet Thailand's
Paradorn Srichaphan in the
third round, Agassi in the
quarterfinals and Safin, seed-
ed fourth, in the semifinals.

@ PHILADELPHIA



TERRELL OWENS is on
crutches and probably finished
until next season, according to
Associated Press.

Randy Moss is limping from
a sprained right ankle that has
cost him: practice time, but is
expected to be on the field Sun-
day when his Minnesota
Vikings play the Eagles in a
second-round playoff game.

Advantage Minnesota? Not
so fast.

While Philadelphia certainly

will miss Owens, the team's

most dangerous playmaker —
and lightning rod — the Eagles
likely can handle his absence
because of their staunch
defense. And the key to that
defense is the superb sec-
ondary, which is capable of
shutting down even a healthy
Moss, Minnesota's most dan-
gerous playmaker — and light-
ning rod.

"T think we are kind of com-





ing together and getting on the

same page," All-Pro. corner--

back Lito Sheppard said.
"Maybe it is because of the type
of year we have had so far.
Everybody is feeling comfort-
able and a lot more confident.

"You have to go against the
best in order to be one of the
best. This is another opportu-
nity for me and the rest of the
secondary to prove that we can
play with the best."

Effective

Moss might not be at his best,
but he wasn't completely
healthy last weekend and he
had a big game at Green Bay.
He wasn't so effective in
Philadelphia's 27-16 victory
over Minnesota in Week 2, with
a costly pass interference penal-
ty along with eight receptions
for 69 yards and a 4-yard touch-
down late in the game.

Moss couldn't get open deep
against the secondary, which



had been revamped in the off-__
~season and had new starters at

cornerback in Sheppard and
Sheldon Brown. That sec-
ondary has jelled so well that
free safety Brian Dawkins also
made the All-Pro team, plus
strong safety Michael Lewis,
Dawkins and Sheppard are
going to the Pro Bowl.

So the experience gained by
Sheppard, Brown and Lewis as
starters, and the leadership of
Dawkins, have been critical in
the development of the defen-
sive backfield, perhaps the best
secondary in football.

"They've got a lot of confi-
dence," defensive coordinator
Jim Johnson said. "They might
give up a big play, but they
won't back off. They are very
competitive guys. They'll come
right back and challenge a guy."

They'll be challenging Moss
from the outset, along with
Nate Burleson, who stepped up
his performances when Moss
was sidelined for three games

Defence is key for Philadelphia Ea

_and parts. of.two-others -by-a--

hamstring injury. But it's a
matchup that favors Philly.
"We have come a long way
in a short period of time,"
Dawkins said. "We have come
to a point of trusting each oth-
er and knowing that each guy
can do his job with excellence.

Important

"The most important thing
on a football field, and espe-
cially in the secondary, is trust.
You have to have trust that
each guy can do his job and
have a good time doing it and
not have to worry about a guy."

Minnesota's secondary isn't
nearly in the class of Philadel-
phia's, although Johnson
praised Antoine Winfield,
signed this season as a free
agent. Not having to deal with
Owens will make things easier
for Winfield and the other
defensive backs.

But the Eagles have another







prime weapon, running back
Michael Westbrook, who cre-
ates mismatches against Min-
nesota's unimpressive line-
backers and safeties. Philadel-
phia reached its third straight
NEC championship game with-
out Owens, then with San Fran-
cisco, and the injured West-
brook last year.

Now, the Eagles have a
healthy Westbrook and a better
defense.

So do the Vikings have an
edge?

If they do, offensive coordi-
nator Scott Linehan believes it
stems from not getting blown
out by the Eagles in Game 2.

"We've gone into that envi-
ronment and put ourselves in
position to win the football
game, and didn't do it," Line-
han said. "We still are a young
team, and for our team to have
that experience in their mind,
knowing we've been there
before, is certainly not going to
hurt us."

Security guard shot
dead after complying
with attackers’ demands

ll By PACO NUNEZ
Tribune Staff Reporter _

'A-SECURITY guard was
shot in the back of the head and
murdered as he lay on the floor
of a pharmacy during an armed
robbery, police have confirmed.

The cold-blooded killing was .--

described as a “senseless act”
as 28-year-old Richard Petty

had complied with the attack- |

ers’ demands.

He was reportedly defence-
less at the time, and had co-
operated completely with his
murderers throughout the rob-
bery.

Mr Petty, a resident of the

Colony Club area, was the
country’s third murder victim
of 2005.
* Police Superintendent Hulan
Hanna said that the robbery
occurred at 7.30pm, when two
men approached the door to
Wilmac’s Pharmacy on Poin-
ciana Drive and were let in by
Mr Petty, who was the security
officer on duty there at the time.
, The employers and family
members told The Tribune yes-
terday that they are shocked
and enraged by the murder.
They say they have been
robbed of a hard working and
well-loved young man.

“They shot him for nothing,
they already had the money,”

one of his employers said.

Mr Petty was reportedly lying
face down on the floor, in accor-
dance with the wishes of the
robbers, when he was shot in
the back of the head.

“Once on the inside the indi-
widuals placed masks on their
faces, and announced that it was
a hold up,” Mr Hanna said.

He said the suspects ordered
staff and customers to the floor.

The men proceeded to take
money from the cash register,
“then on leaving, they turned

’ their weapon on Mr Petty and

he was shot in the head,” Mr
Hanna said.

He said the suspects are
thought to have escaped the
scene on a motorcycle.

“We’re following some leads
in connection with this matter,”
he said.

Curt McCartney, the owner
of Wilmac’s Pharmacy, told The
Tribune that he and his staff are
extremely upset about Mr Pet-
ty’s death.

“He was a very nice guy, very
protective of us,” he said.

Mr Petty had been a security
officer at Wilmac’s Pharmacy
for nearly a year before the rob-
bery. The Tribune was told yes-
terday that he will be sorely
missed by the community in the

Bahamas joins Haiti justice system delegation

@ By RUPERT MISSICK Jr
Senior Staff Reporter

THE BAHAMAS will be a
part of an international delega-
tion deployed to make recom-
mendations to rebuild the jus-
tice system of Haiti, it was
announced yesterday.

The delegation consists of six
experts from Sweden,
Cameroon, Belgium, the United

States and the Bahamas, who
will be represented by Dr Peter
Maynard, former head of the
Bahamas Bar Association.
The members of the delega-
tion were assembled by the
International Legal Assistance
Consortium (ILAC).
The purpose of the mission
is to conduct an overview of the
current state of the Haitian judi-
cial system and to propose and

Nassau and Bahama Islands’ Leading Newspaper

prioritise the necessary projects
for its reconstruction.

Foreign Affairs Minister Fred
Mitchell said during his address
to the UN Security Council on
Thursday that the “traditional
clamour” for a change in gov-
ernment is once again being
raised.

He pointed out to the council
that instability has an adverse
effect on Haiti’s neighbours,

including the Bahamas and
Jamaica, as it spurs illegal immi-
gration and increases the traf-
ficking of small arms and drugs.

One year ago, CARICOM
leaders expressed grave concern
about the deteriorating politi-
cal and security conditions in
Haiti. With Haitian agreement
and international support, the

shine’.

Ms Carroll leaves behind
two daughters, Sophia and
Madeleine, six and nine
years old. She is the oldest
of six children of Freeport
businessman Forrester Car-
roll‘and his first wife, Nancy.

Hopes for
KONI
ports move

@ By PAUL G.
TURNQUEST
Tribune Staff Reporter and
NATARIO McKENZIE

THE recent announce-
‘ment by Prime minister Per-
ry Christie to move the con-
tainer ports from their East
Bay Street location to anoth-
er site on the island is being
hailed by officials as one of
many projects that they hope
will transform Nassau into a
more beautiful port of entry.

According to Garth
Rolle, the port manager at

. Tropical Shipping, one of the :

major shipping companies in -

| New Providence, two

options have actually been
proposed as to the relocation
of the container ports.

“Right now I believe it is
between Arawak Cay and
the southern end of the
island. Although Arawak
Cay will only be an immedi-
ate. intermediary until a
proper facility can be con-
structed to accommodate the
shipping companies,” he ;
said.

Charles Klonaris, the
chairman of the Nassau
Tourism and Development

‘ Board, said that the main
objective in moving the con-
tainer terminals is one of
many projects that he hopes
will transfer the city into the
most desirable port destina-
tion in the Caribbean.

Harbour

“We have recommended
ideas and presented them to
the government for the
transformation and beautifi-
cation of the city. The think-
ing now is more focused on
Clifton Pier where the power
station is. It won’t be an
extension out, but rather a
cutting inland to create a
harbour,” he said.

Shipping officials state
that this new harbour could
easily run the government
into more than $150 to $200
million but stated that the
move will solve many of the
issues regarding the backlog
of traffic in the Bay Street
area,

“If you remove the con-
tainers and the big lorries,
and create proper stops for
jitneys, just think of all the
traffic that will be eliminat-
ed. We will have a cleaner
environment and a more liv-
able city. More room for
growth in terms of hotels
and condos, as one thing will
lead to the next,” said Mr
Klonaris.

Mr Rolle stated that
although no definite location
had been approved, the tem-
porary relocation to Arawak
Cay will be ideal to facilitate
the shipping companies and
to also alleviate the move-
ment of containers directly
along Bay Street.

“Even if the government
said that we have to relocate
tomorrow, the actual move
would not be until like 12
months later, as the required

_ infrastructure needs to be in
place, like storage facilities
and proper cement work for
the grounds,” he said.

Former registrar general speaks
out over firing from her post

atone
hospital atter
stabbing

@ By PACO NUNEZ
Tribune Staff Reporter

A FRENCH-Canadian
tourist is in serious condition
in hospital after being stabbed
during a robbery attempt,
police report.

The incident is one of four
armed robberies that
occurred on Thursday, one
of which left a 28-year-old
security officer dead.

The injured tourist was yes-
terday identified by police as
44-year-old Luke Leiviella
who was staying at the Holi-
day Inn on West Bay Street
-with his brother Francisco
Leiviella.

Police Superintendent
Hulan Hanna said that the
robbery occurred just outside
the hotel at around 8pm.

“They were conversing
with a security officer, it was
reported, when two persons
confronted them. One was
armed with a knife,” Mr Han-
na said.

He said that when the two
men attempted to rob the
tourists, one of the brothers
resisted.

“As a result Luke was
stabbed about the upper
body,” he said.

Mr Leiviella was taken to
hospital, where he is said to
be in serious but stable con-
dition.

The suspects escaped from
the scene, but police are fol-
lowing “some good leads,”
Mr Hanna said.

Police are also searching
for two men who robbed the
Oakes Field branch of Ken-
tucky Fried Chicken just
before 8pm on Thursday.

Masks

According to Mr Hanna,
the two men entered the
establishment pulling masks
over their faces.

Mr Hanna said the men,
both of whom were armed,
demanded cash from staff.

He said they escaped with’
an undisclosed amount of
money, fleeing over a fence
which separates the KFC:
from an adjacent gas station.

According to Mr Hanna,
police have not ruled out the
possibility that these suspects
are connected to an another
armed robbery at Wilmac’s

- Pharmacy on Poinciana Drive
only minutes before.

This incident left security
officer Richard Petty dead.

As a result of another
armed robbery on Thursday
morning, a 28-year-old
Pinewood Gardens man and
26-year-old man from Nas-
sau village man have been
arrested.

The two men are suspected
of robbing Percy’s Web Cafe
on Carmichael Road of a
large amount of cash.

“The information is that a
female employee went on the
outside to throw out some
garbage.

_ “She was accosted by a
heavy built male who was
clad in a black tam and green
jacket,” Mr Hanna said.

The man reportedly pro-
duced a weapon and ordered
the female back inside.

“He demanded cash. He
was handed over a number
of envelopes containing
cash,” Mr Hanna said.

The man then fled over a
nearby wall and got into a
grey Nissan Maxima.

“This vehicle was later
intercepted in the Faith
Avenue area and two males
were arrested,” Mr Hanna
said.

He said that police also
retrieved a firearm, “and a
large sum of money believed
to be the property of Percy’s
Web Cafe.”

Tribune Staff Reporter

FORMER Registrar Gen-
eral Elizabeth Thompson
yesterday spoke out on her
firing from her post, calling
the incident “a new low” for
Bahamian society.

Ms Thompson, who was
terminated from her position
as Registrar General on
Monday evening, said that
she has not as yet been given
a reason for her firing
“either verbally or in writ-
ing.”

On yesterday’s edition of
the radio talk show Issues of
the Day, Ms Thompson said
that she was merely told that
her three-year contract was
being terminated, effective
January 10, 2004, and that
she will be given one mon-
th’s pay in lieu of notice.

Contract

Ms Thompson, a single
mother and attorney by pro-
fession, said : “I was given
no indication that I did any-
thing wrong. I was given no
indication either verbally or
in writing that I breached
any provisions of my con-
tract.

“There was no indication
that there was a problem
with my performance.”

She conceded that there
was some friction with line
staff and supervisors when
she first assumed the post of
Registrar General on August
3, 2004, but pointed out that
soon after she was able to
establish a rapport with the

Not guilty
plea to
drugs charge

@ By TIFFANY GRANT












































A RESIDENT of South
Beach pleaded not guilty in
Magistrate’s Court yester-
day to possession of dan-
gerous drugs with the intent
to supply.

It was alleged that Mario
Livingston Taylor, 31, was
found in possession of
cocaine with intent to supply
another.

He was granted bail in the
sum of $10,000 and is
required to report to the
South Beach Police Station
every Monday and Friday
before 6pm.

The case was adjourned
to September 20.

Court

Also appearing in court
on drug charges was Romeo
Burrows, alias Romeo
Smith. The 24-year-old
pleaded not guilty to pos-
session of dangerous drugs.

Court records allege that
on January 12, Burrows was
found in possession of Indi-
an hemp.

He was granted $1,000
bail and will reappear in
court on September 20.

In other court news,
Terell Murray pleaded not
guilty to threats of death. It
was alleged that Murray
threatened Kristy Miller
with death.

Bail was set at $3,500 and
the defendant is expected to
reappear in court on June 2.
Michael Russell, 32, pleaded
not guilty to assault. It was
alleged that on December
31 the accused assaulted
Patrick Louissaint.

Bail was set at $2,000 and
the case was adjourned to
June 2.

“that I have never experi-
enced before in my profes-
sional career.”

Ms Thompson also con-
firnied that there were con-
cerns regarding her adminis-
tration methods.

“There was criticism, as a
leader you expect criticism,”
she noted.

The former Registrar
General, however, explained
that from a staff of around
70 people, “five or six at the
most” raised concerns about
herconduct.

“Some people were dissat-
isfied. When I came in I
tried as much as possible to
ensure that the rules of pub-
lic service were followed.

“Perhaps I was a little

overzealous, but there came...
a point where. they realised -

that I had their best inter-
ests at heart. The majority
or persons embraced what I
was trying to achieve,” she
said.

Naming some of the
changes she made when she
took office in August, Ms
Thompson said that she

blocked free access to free

long distance telephone
calls.

She explained that she
implemented the use of
codes for the employees to
access the switch board with.

She also said that she cre-
ated a list of all marriage
licences that were deferred
by her office, so that couples
could not go to other reg-
istry offices in the Bahamas
to apply for a marriage per-
mit.

“I stopped the haemor-
thages,” she added. i

sales’ concerns



CONCERNS have been raised that some Bahamian fish-
ermen may be selling the banned Nassau Grouper illegally.

Reports reaching The Tribune revealed that it may be
possible to purchase grouper from the homes of local fish-
ermen simply by “naming your price at the dock.”

One fisherman told a customer that if she wanted grouper
all she had to do was arrange with a fisherman at the dock
and they could get the fish from their home. “You can’t
sell it at the dock but if you ask round and they could help

The Nassau Grouper is the only type of the fish protected
under the ban and although it may be sold if it was caught
and frozen before the ban’s date - December 16, it cannot be

Yesterday, the Deputy Director of the Department of
Fisheries Edison Delevaux, said Bahamian fishermen seem |
to be complying with the grouper ban. He said that many
fishermen and vendors stocked up on grouper before the
ban, took it home and froze it.

“That may be the grouper they are referring to,” he said.

Possession

He told The Tribune that since the ban, which lasts until
February 16, the department had only had one report of
someone in possession of the Nassau Grouper.

He said there are several other varieties of grouper includ-
ing Gag, Red, Mulloway, Red Hind, Rock Hind, Black,
Yellowfin and Scamp which may be what vendors at docks

He reminded the public that the law says that any person’
found illegally in possession of the fish can be charged,
including fishermen who catch the fish, vendors or buyers.

Fines are $3,000, one year imprisonment or both depend-
ing on the extent of the violation.

Members of the Royal Bahamas. Defence Force and.
Department of Fisheries inspectors patrol the waters and the
docks daily to ensure the ban is being enforced.

The attorney further said
that the question if she was
only the Registrar General
in name also arose on
numerous occasions.

“The question is, was I
even the leader, the Regis-
trar General, was I allowed
to function?” she said.

She said that her adminis-
trative powers “were
clipped.”

“T was not supported in
my decision with regards to
disciplining the staff,” she
added.

4 @ e
Opinion

Ms Thompson said that in
her opinion her termination
could have been handled in
a different manner and not
with the “great disrespect”
in which it was.

“I feel:hard-done, hurt
and ignored.

“We should, as a Christ-
ian nation, not deal with
each other in such an

unchristian way,” she said.
The public first heard of

-Ms Thompson’s termination

when she was verbally fired
on December 9, 2004.

This information resulted
in staff at the Registrar Gen-
eral’s office walking off their
jobs in protest.

Following Ms Thompson’s
official termination on Mon-
day, the Ministry of Finan-
cial Services and Invest-
ments announced that the
Governor General acting on
the advice of the Judicial
and Legal Service Commis-
sion has appointed Shane

‘Wheelie’ tribute
at biker’s funera

MOTOR-CYCLISTS performed “wheelies” in a Nassau.
cemetery yesterday as a salute to a fellow biker who died in a
road crash two weeks ago.

The bikers “pranced” on one wheel as Patrick “Rock Man”
Lewis was laid to rest at Woodlawn Cemetery with more than

‘250 mourners looking on.

“Tt was a moving tribute to a popular man,” a lifelong friend

said afterwards. “It was their way of showing their respect.”
e
Killed

Mr Lewis, 47, was killed on January 2 when his motor-cycle
spun out of control at Coral Harbour roundabout. He and a
group of bikers had been travelling in a group along the airport
road.

A truck driver with a passion for motor-cycles, Mr Lewis
was also “saluted” by fellow truckers who drove past St Barn-
abas Church, where his funeral was held, blowing their horns.

Housing Minister Shane Gibson, Garden Hills MP Veronica
Owens and Nassau Bikes Association official Germaine Davis
were among mourners.

Childhood friend Rodney Moncur told the congregation that
mM Lewis was a “warrior of steel” and “fearless freedom fight-

r” during his years as a political activist.
nal he said he was a tireless champion in the fight for justice.
Mr Lewis, a father of one, died instantly when his machine
skidded on gravel, sending him headlong onto the roundabout.
He was not wearing a crash helmet at the time, according to
friends. i

Wise islanders shun modern man

OF ALL the images to come forth from
the great tsunami of 2004, most of them of
suffering and catastrophe, consider that of
the naked Sentinelese tribesman on a
remote Andaman island taking a shot with
his bow and arrow at a would-be rescuing
helicopter. It reminded me somehow of
the lone Chinese man standing before a
column of tanks on their way to shoot
down the protesters at Tienanmen Square.

As the Chinese man seemed to symbol-

ize the human spirit standing up to brute
force, so did the Andaman islander sym-
bolize for me a contrarian protest: No,
we don’t want to be rescued, we don’t
want your helicopter here, we don’t want
cellphones or television or movies, we
don’t want doctors or psychiatrists, we
don’t need counselling, we are not upset
being left behind by globalization, and we
are not even interested in wearing clothes.
Most of all, we are not interested in you,
SO go away!
' [had read of these remote tribes, Negri-
tos as small as pygmies, who inhabit those
islands and have been warding off mod-
ernization since Marco Polo dropped in on
them in the 13th century. Anthropologists
say they have been isolated from the rest
of humanity for 30,000 to 60,000 years,
and little is known of their languages’ or
their gods.

Just after the wave hit, those in the out-
side world who knew of them worried that
their few- hundreds might have been all
wiped out — a last living link to the Pale-
olithic past. It turned out, however, that
they were quite well, thank you, and said
they didn’t need any of the billions in aid
that are pouring into the region in the
wake of the disaster.

It has been speculated that they, living
closer to nature, might have been able to
anticipate the tsunami, and therefore
moved out of its way in time. They may

have been able to watch the behaviour of .

animals and birds, as creatures are known
to be able to anticipate earthquakes
before any human being can feel the
shock.

Early accounts of them have not been
flattering. Marco Polo said they had the
heads and teeth of dogs — perhaps
because they filed their teeth into sharp
‘points.

The cheerfully racist Victorians were

Bishop Gloria Redd

no kinder. Sir Arthur Conan Doyle, in
“The Sign of the Four,” has Sherlock
Holmes and Dr. Watson encountering an
Andaman islander brought to London by
an escaped convict from the Andaman
penal colony. During a chase on the river
Thames, when Holmes’s boat draws close
to that of the suspects, Watson sees “a
little black man, the smallest I have ever
seen,” with lips writhing back from his
teeth, “which grinned and chattered at us
with half animal fury.”.The fellow takes a
shot at Holmes and Watson with a poi-
soned dart from a blow pipe.

There are very few people left on Earth
who have been so successful at warding
off modernity, a few in the rain forests of
South America, maybe some in the
remote regions of Africa.

As recently as the 1930s a large popu-
lation of men and women living in the
highlands of New Guinea made their first
contact with the modern world when Aus-
tralian gold prospectors stumbled into
their territory.

I have talked to old people in New .

Guinea who could still remember where

they were and what they were doing when -

the news came of the coming of the white
people.

i The photographs these prospeciors took i

of these first contacts show faces filled
with shock, fear, and curiosity. Some of
these island men thought that the white
Australians might be the ghosts of their
dead, and so they asked the Australians
just what the natives of America first
asked Christopher Columbus: Are you
our ancestors?

It is easy to get too romantic about iso-
lated peoples — as I am clearly doing.
Their lives were just as filled with anger,
jealousy, greed, and murder as ours. The
idea of the noble savage was always non-
sense. Human beings are human, whether
they bash each other with arrows or
bombs.

Yet I find it impossible not to admire
the man with the bow and arrow taking a
shot at the helicopter, as his literary pre-
decessor took a shot at Sherlock Holmes,
and the resilience of his people in resisting
the relentless march of modernity.

Salaries and
allowances
of our MPs

EDITOR, The Tribune.

I WROTE a letter to the
editor of The Tribune dated
December 9, 2004, and it
appeared in The Tribune on
December 11, 2004. The
heading over the letter read:
“Revisit MP’s salaries and
allowances”. The letter
(directed to The Prime Minis-
ter) called on the PM to take
the necessary steps to cause
legislation to be brought to
Parliament which would have
the effect of increasing the
salaries of Members of Parlia-
ment from $28,000 to $52,000
annually. And also to cause
the $1,500 a month office
allowance to be increased sig-
nificantly also.

’ The editor’s note accom-

_ panying the letter effectively

disagreed with the positions
taken in the letter. I encourage
your readers to read the letter
as well as the editor’s note.
Be that as it may, while I
appreciate the comments for-
warded, I think it is incum-

bent upon me to address the-

editor’s concerns as they relate
to the reasons why an increase
is not warranted:

(1) Non Cabinet MP’s usu-
ally hold second jobs — It is
my humble opinion that an
MP should be so busy con-
ducting the people’s business
that he would not have the
time to devote to anything
else. MP’s represent the inter-
ests of sometimes more than
3000 constituents. I would
think that that kind of repre-

. Sentation would be very
. demanding; even spilling over
into private life. And the fact’

that it is common practice for
MP’s in The Bahamas to hold
second jobs in order to sup-
plement their income,
although understandable, does
not mean that it should be
condoned. A candidate in the
2002 general election had the
right idea when she
announced by television that if
she had won the seat, then
Member of Parliament would

have been her only job. How- .

ever, she lost.

(2) The House of Assembly
meets only once a week — In
my humble opinion, it seems
surprisingly naive of the editor
to believe that speaking in

- Parliament is the only thing

that these men and women do
in their capacity as MP. I am
sure the editor is able to
appreciate that extensive

research has to be conducted
to be able to competently
speak on any particular topic
or piece of legislation before
the House. That takes time.
What else the editor should
have been able to appreciate is
the different meetings that an
MP would have to attend in
Nassau, the Family Islands,
and internationally. All a part
of conducting the people’s
business. That takes time.
Furthermore, the 3000 plus
constituents would have con-
cerns which the MP would
have to give a good ear to,
and, more importantly,
address. That takes time.
Public speeches, funerals,

weddings, graduations, and ..

any other functions the public
expects him to attend. That
too takes time.

And I’m sure that there are
more time-consuming activi-
ties associated with being an

With all these demands on
his time, the editor should
have been able to appreciate
that the time of an MP is valu-
able and therefore he should
be adequately compensated.

And so, to pigeonhole an
MP’s function as simply

attending House sittings is dis-

playing an uncharacteristic
level of ignorance.

(3) Long holidays — Where
the editor and I are able to
agree is that House sessions
might be.too short and subse-

quently, holidays might be too ‘

long. The business of the peo-
ple must be done.

The’ editor included at the
beginning of the comments an
opinion that any aspiring MP

should not expect so much in,

terms of salary payments. But,
my own assessment of the
political landscape in The
Bahamas reveals _ that,
notwithstanding the present
salary allowances, only the
financially secure persons are
attracted to the office. That
should not be the case. Who is
to say poor and middle-class
Bahamians would not have
anything to contribute to the
forward development of The
Bahamas, even if they are
labelled and ostracised as
being “on the other side”.
And it is this labelling and

ostracisation which would cat-
apult persons back to poverty
if they should lose their seat.

Don’t you think it prudent for |

the government to make pro-
vision for that eventuality for
someone who chooses to serve
their country at that level?
Finally, the editor did not
comment on what the govern-
ment should provide for MPs
when matriculating to that
office. Does silence mean con-
sent? I certainly hope so.

ONCE again the.
Bahamian people are being
held hostage and now it’s
by the gas companies.
These companies that con-
tinue to strike when they
can’t get their way do not
seem to realise that no
company can survive with-
out customers.

I feel they are being
totally unreasonable by not
accepting an increase of
$15 and J think it’s for the
Bahamian public to take a

stand and send.a strong‘);

message that we will not
tolerate a strike every time
these companies do not get
what they want.

I for one will be boy-
cotting all the gas compa-
nies that are on this strike
and only patronise the
companies that are not and
I hope that every Bahami-

_an being affected by this
charade would do the
same.

It’s time for the public to |
get back some sort of pow-
er and not be held hostage -
every Christmas by one
company or the other.

Let’s see how long their
company will remain in
business without thd pub-
lic’s support.

Hila who il te

suspect KUL

& By CARA BRENNEN
Tribune Staff Reporter

JOHN Ferguson, Super-
intendent of the Complaints
and Corruption unit of the
Royal Bahamas Police
Force, has vowed that the
department will take a
strong stand against officers
who brutalise suspects in
custody.

Mr Ferguson said he was
unaware of complaints being
brought to the unit last year
against officers for that
offence directly, but that
they had investigated claims
of brutality of persons who
felt that they were injured
in the course of being arrest-
ed.

Cases

-When The Tribune told
him of cases of persons
being arraigned in court who
claimed that they had had
billys shoved down their
throats, been kicked in the
stomach and groin and had
plastic bags pulled over their
head while being questioned
in custody, Mr Ferguson was’
adamant that Police Com-
missioner Paul Farquharson
would not tolerate that kind
of behaviour.

He said that his unit
would vigorously investigate
any such claims and if they
turned out to have merit,
| the officers involved would
have to face disciplinary
action from the Police Tri-
bunal which rules on such
matters. He said that
depending on the extent of
the abuse, the Tribunal
would either give the officer



an official reprimand or if |

necessary seek the advice of
the Attorney General’s
office or turn it over to a
criminal court.

Mr Ferguson said “con-
stant training and retrain-
ing” is the only way to
encourage:and enforce that
police officers treat suspects
humanely.

Oasis workers

@ By DENISE MAYCOCK

Reporter

FREEPORT - Workers at
the Royal Oasis Resort demon-
strated for a second consecu-
tive day at the resort on Friday
for six hours to pressure the
government for assistance and
answers regarding the true sta-
tus of the resort.

There have been rumours
among employees that the oper-
ators have abandoned the prop-
erty, which was closed for
reconstruction following the
hurricanes in September.

At 7am, workers assembled
at Ranfurly Circus, where they
picketed with placards until
1pm at the resort’s entrance.

Resort

. Driftwood, the operators of
the resort, was forced to lay off
more than 1,000 workers with-
out pay at the Crowne Plaza
and Sunspree resorts and casino
due to extensive damage caused
by the storms.

While some of the employ-
ees were retained for the recon-
struction phase, many remained
jobless. And, now that recon-

struction work has ceased for ~

are unable to pay their bills.

Many are concerned about
whether the resort will re-open
in April.

“Rumour has it that Mr (Sol)
Kerzner will be buying the
property,” said one worker.
“We would like the government
to come forth and give us a def-
inite answer so that we would

know if we will be able to feed

our children, pay school fees.

and keep our light and water
on.”

The woman, who has been
employed for 15 years, said the

I am extremely vex with the Batelco auto-
mated phone system. Have you ever called that
incredibly annoying main number? They ask
you to spell out the person you’re trying to
reach. First their first name.and then their last
name. How in the world am I supposed to know
who’s the assistant director or his assistant’s

niently to someone’s mailbox that is conve-
niently full! Lord knows I want to reach through
the phone sometimes and ‘just grab that per-
son I know is just sitting there laughing as you
get transferred round and round the place.

Fed up with Batelco.





























I vex about all this traffic in the mornings. I sit
in traffic for almost an hour trying to get from
home to work! So I can’t even sleep until like
7.30am. I have to be up at 6am to try to be to
work before 9am. That is crazy! Why-all these
cars in Nassau anyway?

Matson Delancy, of Stapeldon.

What is up with these positions in govern-
ment? Why is there an under secretary and an
assistant secretary, who also has a first secretary
to them. They have more helpers than I could
shake a stick at. So why is it that still govern-
ment can’t get anything done on time or in
good order? Why is service at these offices so
horrible if they have all these “high status” peo-
ple working there? How much do they actually
get paid by the way, because I’ll be damned if
I’m paying for six secretaries to just be sitting by
the phone to tell me that my minister is out to
lunch or “out of office.” I could tell them he out
of office, cause I just saw him down at Fish Fry.
Next time I need to ask them what in the world
they. doing for a change. I once called a ministry
and asked for the minister, who naturally was-
n’t there, so I asked for his secretary. She was-
n’t in. The permanent secretary was out, the
assistant secretary was not at her desk, and they
couldn’t find the under secretary. I had to ask
the lady who actually workin in the office! We
need a list of all these persons with their quali-
fications, because we all know that half of them
are political appointees who just sit around

name? Then it always transfers you conve-.



waiting for pay day anyway. We need to weed
them out now.

A fellow government employee.

I am vex with the way people are, being han-
dled with the government loans programme. I
spent weeks, no months trying to get this loan,
only to be short changed on by the bank |
charges. They tell you its $10,000 but I ended up
with $9,600 something dollars. Now if you real-
ly struggling to go off to school that $400 dif-
ference could really hurt you. And now unfor-
tunately I can’t make it to school this semester
so I have to deal with paying back this loan
that I haven’t even used yet.

Derek, from Elizabeth Estates.

Why You Happy?
I happy with the whole world right now. My
work sending me off to school! Finally the
papers reach in.

so I guess they don’t want noth-
ing to do with us,” she said.
Dennis Britton, a casino
worker and president of the
gaming union, and Kendal Pin-
der, spokesmen for the work-
ers, met with Tourism Minister
Obie Wilchcombe, Labour Min-
ister Vincent Peet and Social
Service Minister Melanie Grif-
fin on Thursday evening to try
to get some answers and assis-
tance on behalf of workers.
Because they were unable to
get any definite answers or
assistance from the ministers,
Mr Britton said they continued
with the demonstration on Fri-

day.

“We wanted to know the sta-
tus of the resort or whether it
will be open in April,” he said.

If the resort fails to re-open in
April, Mr Britton said the gov-
ernment should give monetary
assistance for unemployed

_ workers.

“They should be able to pro-
vide some, monetary funding

suchas unemployment pay. [tis
done in the Caribbean and US

and we need to do that for citi-
zens in the Bahamas,” he
stressed. et

Families

Mr Britton said they have
suggested that government give
a stipend of $200 during the
period until the resort is opened
so that workers can provide
properly for their families.

He said that in the event the
hotel does not re-open soon,
workers should be paid off and
given first preference to come
back when the resort opens. ‘

“We could not get a clear
answer from them as to who
owns the hotel. Or, what really
is being done to the hotel or
when operations would resume.

“We were told Driftwood still

-owns it. However, we heard

rumours that some other com-
pany in the US and other enti-
ties from the Bahamas own it,”
he said.

David Buddemeyer, presi-
dent of Driftwood, purchased
the resort property in May 2000
for $25 million. Driftwood Ven-

tures, which is an independent
hotel management company
based in West Palm Beach,
Florida, owns and operates nine
hotels in the United States,
Hawaii, and the Bahamas.

The company also owns and
operates the Holiday Inn and
Astoria Hotel in Nassau, and
Holiday Inn Sunspree on Par-
adise Island.

Mr Britton said that workers
in Freeport deserve to know
what is going on with the resort
in Grand Bahama because they
are under great financial strain.

Answers

Kendal Pinder said it is gov-
ernment's responsibility to seek
answers from the owners and
management as to when work-
ers can get back to work.

“If there is no definite date
for when the resort would open
we would like for government
to seek a severance package for
workers and give first consid-
eration for jobs if it re-opens,”
he said.

In the meantime, the Ministry .
of Social Services has promised
to set up an office so employees
can bring in copies of their bills

so that an assessment can be

conducted.

Mr Britton said it does not
mean they will get assistance.

“We understand that some
workers have been getting
rental assistance from Social
Services. I have seen a voucher
of $30 from Social Services.
What can that get you in Grand
Bahama with one food store
chain and with prices so high?”

“The government needs to
give workers a stipend and let
them decide what they will do
with the money,” he said.

Man struck
by vehicle

A MAN narrowly
escaped becoming the coun-
try’s fourth traffic fatality of
the new year when he was
struck by a vehicle on
Thursday night.

According to reports a
pedestrian became the vic-
tim of a hit-and-run at
9.35pm while walking east
on Bar 20, in the Jerome
Avenue area.

Supt Burkie Wright, in
charge of the Traffic Divi-
sion, told The Tribune yes-
terday that the man was
struck by an unknown vehi-
cle and sustained “severe
injuries to the head and suf-
fered a broken left leg.”

“The ambulance took him
to Princess Margaret Hos-
pital where he is in serious,
but stable condition,” said
Mr Wright.

The superintendent said
that police had not yet been
able to talk to the man to
ascertain his identity, but
believed his first name to be
Richard.

MINISTER of Social Ser-
vices and Community Devel-
opment Melanie Griffin, will
lead a high-level delegation
to the 38th Session of the
United Nations Committee
on The Rights of the Child
Meeting in Geneva, Switzer-
land, to present the country’s
initial report on efforts to
protect children’s rights in
the Bahamas.

Minister Griffin and her
delegation will depart Nas-
sau for Geneva on Monday,
January 17, 2005. The dele-
gation will report to the
Expert Committee in two
sessions beginning at 10am
on Wednesday, (January 19).
The opening session will be
held from 10am to 1pm, with
the second session scheduled
from 3pm to 6pm.

Other members of the del-
egation include Andrea
Archer, Deputy Permanent
Secretary, Ministry of Health;
Carnetta Ferguson, Assistant
Director of Education; Kayla
Green, Senior Counsel,
Office of the Attorney-Gen-
eral; and Mellany Zonicle,
Director of Social Services.
They will be joined by Nicole
Archer, Third Secretary at
the Bahamas Mission to the

’ United Nations.

Meeting

The Committee on the
Rights of the Child began
meeting at the Palais Wilson
in Geneva on Monday, Janu-
ary 10, 2005, to review the
promotion and the protection
of children’s rights in a num-
ber of countries including the
Bahamas, Sweden, Albania,
Luxembourg, Austria, Belize,
Tran, Nigeria, Togo and
Bolivia. The meetings will
run through Friday, (January
28).

The Bahamas and Albania
will present their initial
reports to the Committee,
while Austria, Belize, Iran,
Luxembourg, Nigeria and
Togo will present each coun-

/

lead delegation
to Switzerland

try’s second periodic reports.
Bolivia and Sweden will pre-
sent their third periodic
reports.

Established in 1991, the
Committee monitors the rate
at which State Parties are
meeting their obligations
under the Convention on the
Rights of the Child, which
gives a comprehensive col-
lection of children’s rights the
force of international law and
is considered the most wide-
ly accepted international
human rights instrument.

Scheduled

The 10 countries scheduled
to present reports at the 38th
session are among the 192
that have ratified or acceded
to the Convention. Only
Somalia and the United
States of America have not
ratified the Convention. State
Parties are expected to send
representatives to the Com-
mittee to present periodic
reports on national efforts
advancing children’s rights in
their respective countries.

“The Convention on the
Rights of the Child is a Unit-
ed Nations agreement that
spells out the range of rights
that children everywhere are
entitled to,” said Miss Zoni-
cle. “It sets basic standards
for children’s well-being at
various stages of their devel-
opment. Countries that ratify.
the Convention report regu-
larly to the Expert Commit-
tee on the Rights of the Child
as to the steps they have tak-
en to comply with the provi-
sions of the Convention”.

The Convention is the first
universal, legally binding
code of child rights in history.

It brings together, in one
treaty, all the relevant child
rights issues rather than hav-
ing them scattered among
multiple international
treaties. Aare

It contains 54 articles, each
of which outlines a different
type of right to ensure the
protection of children glob-
ally. These include Survival,
Development, Protection and
Participation rights.

A United Nations
spokesperson said while the

. Convention upholds these

basic rights, it does not
infringe on the rights of par-
ents to decide what is best

. for their children.

‘Instead, it specifically states
that governments shall make
every effort to keep families
intact. and shall provide sup-
port and assistance to par-
ents in fulfilling their prima-
ry responsibility with regards
to the “upbringing and
development” of their chil-
dren.

Once a country ratifies the

‘Convention, it assumes legal

obligation to implement the
rights recognised in the
treaty. Countries incur an
additional obligation to sub-
mit regular reports to.the
Committee on how those
rights are being implement-
ed.

_ Information

To meet their reporting
obligation, States Parties
must provide an initial report

two years after joining and.

every five years thereafter.
In addition to the govern-
ment report, the Committee
receives information on a
country’s human rights situa-
tion from other sources
including non-governmental
organisations, United
Nations agencies, academic
institutions, the media and

inter- -governmental organisa-

tions.

ernment representatives and

organised under the topics
identified by the Expert
Committee such as General
Measures of Implementation;
Civil Rights and Freedoms;
Family Environment and
Alternative Care; Basic
Health: .and :7: Welfare;

Music star: Haiti too
re for elections

ml PORT-AU- PRINCE, Haiti

CONCLUDING a visit to his native Haiti, hip hop star
Wyclef Jean said Thursday the Caribbean country is too
divided and violent to hold credible elections, according to

General elections are planned for later this year. Gov-
ernment and U.N. peacekeeping mission officials insist they
will do all they can to ensure the vote takes place. Haiti's Par-
liament became powerless last year when a failure to hold
elections because of instability left legislative seats empty.

Dialogue
"Unless there is some form of heavy national dialogue
where there is security and people feel safe, it's going to be

hard to go through with a really positive election,"
year-old singer said in an interview with The Associated

ion efforts

education; the establishment
of the National Commission
on Special Education; the
Urban Renewal Programme
and the Ministry of Health’s
Neuro-developmental clinic
for at-risk babies.

Other avenues for discus-
sion will focus on the Royal
Bahamas Police Force’s Spe-
cial Unit for Missing and
Exploited Children, the
National Drug Plan, parent-
ing programmes for
inner-city areas and the
establishment of the child-
friendly rape suites, among
others.

Adopted

The General Assembly of
the United Nations unani-
mously adopted the Conven-
tion on the Rights of the
Child on November 20, 1989,
thirty years after the adop-
tion of the Declaration of the
Rights of the Child. Work on
drafting the Convention
began in 1979, which marked
the initial commemoration of
the International Year of the
Child.

The Convention was made
available for signature on
January 26, 1990, and entered
into force seven months later
on September 2, 1990.

The Bahamas ratified the
Convention in 1991.

Ratifying the Convention
entails reviewing national
legislation to ensure it con-
forms with the provisions of
the treaty.

Jean said a dialogue including businessmen, gang leaders

He also visited schools in and around the capital, where he

Amnesty International
and the death penalty

AST week we
looked at the issue

of the death penalty and
Amnesty International’s
opposition to its use as
punishment, for any crime.
It is the ultimate denial of
human rights, the right to
life. This week we will look
at other facts concerning
‘he death penalty.
More than 40 countries
1ave abolished the death
venalty for all crimes since

loves to Reintroduce the
Death Penalty

O nce abolished, the
death penalty is

Idom reintroduced. Since
85, over 50 countries
ave abolished the death
enalty in law or, having
reviously abolished it for
rdinary crimes, have gone
n to abolish it for all
rimes.

During the same period
mly four abolitionist coun-
ries reintroduced the death

yenalty. One of them -.

Nepal - has since abolished
the death penalty again.
One, the Philippines,

cesumed executions but. has. .

since’ suspended them.
There have been no execu-
tions in the other two
(Gambia, Papua New
Guinea).

Death Sentences
and Executions

D uring 2003, at
least 1,146 prison-

érs were executed in 28
countries and at least 2,756
people were sentenced to
death in 63 countries.

cases known to Amnesty
International. The true fig-
ures are certainly higher.

' In 2003, 84 per cent of all
known executions took
place in China, Iran, the
USA and Vietnam. In Chi-
na, limited and incomplete
records available to
Amnesty International at
the end of the year indicat-
ed that at least 726 people
were executed, but the true
fizure was believed to be
much higher: a senior Chi-
nese legislator suggested in
March, 2004, that China
executes “nearly 10,000”
people each year. At least
108 executions were carried
out in Iran. Sixty-five peo-

USA. At least 64 people
were executed in Vietnam.

Dependable, Reliable Quality

Recent crime figures
from abolitionist countries

fail to show that abolition |

has harmful effects. In
Canada, the homicide rate
per 100,000 population fell
from a peak of 3.09 in 1975,
the year before the aboli-
tion of the death penalty
for murder, to 2.41 in 1980,
and since then it has
declined further. In 2002,
26 years after abolition, the
homicide rate was 1.85 per
100,000 population, 40 per
cent lower than in 1975.

Execution of the Innocent

s long as. the
death penalty is
maintained, the risk of exe-
cuting the innocent can

never be eliminated.

Since 1973, 117 prisoners
have been released from
death row in the USA, after
evidence emerged of their
innocence of the crimes for
which they were sentenced
to death. There were five °
such cases in 2004.

Some had come close to
execution after spending
many years under sentence
of death. Recurring fea-
tures in their cases include
prosecutorial or police mis-
conduct; the use of unreli-
able witness testimony,
physical evidence, or con-
fessions; and inadequate
defence representation.
Other US prisoners have
gone to their deaths despite
serious doubts over their
guilt.

The then Governor of the.
US state of Illinois, George
Ryan, declared a moratori-
um on executions in Janu-
ary, 2000. His decision fol-
lowed the exoneration of
the 13th death row prisoner
found to have been wrong-
fully convicted in the state
since the USA resumed
executions in 1977. During
the same period, 12 other
Illinois prisoners had been
executed.

In January, 2003, Gover-
nor Ryan pardoned four
death row prisoners and
commuted all 167 other
death sentences in Illinois.

The balance sheet has been prepared in accordance with International Financial Reporting
Standards. The preparation of the balance sheet in conformity with International Financial

11. CONTINGENT LIABILITIES

In the ordinary course of business, the Company, certain of its directors, and/or its subsidiary
are defendants or co-defendants in various litigation and claims as individuals, legal entities,
and in their capacity as trustees or custodians. Although there can be no assurances, the
Company and its legal counsel believe, based on information available, that they can
successfully defend their position and the ultimate outcome of legal proceedings would not
have a material adverse effect on the financial position of the Company.

f) Cash and cash equivalents — Cash and cash equivalents consist of cash and short-
term deposits from banks.

p) Related parties — Related parties include officers and directors who are related
through having authority and responsibility for directing and contro:'’ng the activities

: During the normal course of business, the Company is exposed to various financial risks.
h) Investment in Subsidiary — ‘The Company’s investment in its Subsidiary was

previously recorded in the balance sheet using the equity method. a) Credit risk - Credit risk arises from the failure of a counter party to perform according

to the terms of the contract. From this perspective, the Company’s significant
exposure to credit risk is primarily concentrated in receivables. Management assesses
its receivable balances on’ a regular basis making specific provision for amounts
considered uncollectible. This provision is further supplemented by general

Fair value of financial instruments included in assets and liabilities, except for the
investment which is carried at cost, are assumed to approximate their carrying values due
to their short-term maturity.

The estimated fair value represents values which financial instruments could be exchanged
for in a current transaction between willing parties. Where there is no available trading
market, fair values are estimated using appropriate valuation methods. :

W ITNESSING histo-
ry as it is being

made is a unique experience '

that not too many people are

ever privileged to enjoy in

their lifetime.

Thus, such was our good for-
tune this past Wednesday to
have attended an historic cele-
bration in the St Cecelia con-
stituency, at which the thor-
oughfare formerly known as
Exuma Street was officially
renamed Amos Ferguson

‘Street.

Located in the bowels of
Over-the-Hill, the occasion
highlighted the Government’s
determination to commemo-
rate and perpetuate the cul-
tural contribution of a hum-
ble, but extremely gifted,
native son who has gained
international acclaim as one of
this country’s greatest artists.

Such acclaim has brought.
worldwide recognition to the

Commonwealth of The

- Bahamas.

The uniqueness of Mr Fer-
guson’s style lies in his. tech-
nique, which features the use
of house-paint on cardboard.

. In many instances, the paint is

applied with common objects,
including twigs from trees of
various sizes that form a series
of dots.

Mr Ferguson reportedly
does not recall when he first
began to paint pictures. How-
ever, he said that the ideas for
his themes come by “Divine
inspiration”. Most of his paint-
ings feature religious themes.
Others depict historical, nature
and cultural scenes.

The event was jointly spon-
sored by the Ministry of
Youth, Sports and Culture and

‘the Ministry of Public Works steno amie
resides not to far from the res-

and Utilities. Following a mag-
nificent rendition of our
National Anthem by Ms Pier-
rise Saunders, a member of
both the National Youth Choir
and the Choir of the College of

. The Bahamas, the invocation

was then given by the Rev
Charles W Saunders, pastor of
Salem Union Baptist Church,
the worship home of the hon-
ouree Mr Amos Ferguson.

In thanking God for the life
and talent of this distinguished
artist, Rev Saunders noted Mr
Ferguson’s progressive devel-
opment in his ultimate field of
endeavour from his early
beginnings in The Forest, Exu-
ma, where he was born in 1920,
to his move to Exuma Street,
New Providence, and all that
he has been able to accomplish
since then.

Ne. on the pro-
gramme were intro-

ductory remarks given by Mr
Winston Saunders, chairman
of the National Commission
on Cultural Development. In
his address, Mr Saunders gave
a concise account of Mr Fer-
guson’s professional develop-
ment from his initial stint as a
carpenter and house painter to
his elevation to that of a
renowned artist, whose unique
technique has since brought
him both international fame
and fortune.

Mr Saunders’ remarks pre-
ceded a stirring rendition of
“Great-is Thy Faithfulness”,
one of Mr Ferguson’s favourite
hymns, by Mrs Patricia Biz-
zard. The Hon Bradley
Roberts, Minister of Works
and Utilities, after offering his
personal congratulations to the
honouree, informed the audi-
ence of his ministry’s contri-
bution to the occasion via the
provision of street paving and
the historic signage.

Following a musical selec-
tion, “Everytime I Feel the
Spirit”, by a combined group
from the Cultural Division and
the College of The Bahamas,
who called themselves simply
Friends, the Hon Neville Wis-
dom, Minister Of Youth,
Sports and Culture, then made
his remarks. In his address, the
minister told of his initial intro-
duction to Mr Ferguson, their
relationship since, and his sub-
sequent efforts in making the
honouring ceremony possible.

Mr Wisdom then introduced

ber of Parliament for the St
Cecelia constituency, to deliv-
er the keynote address, which
followed a surprise initial pub-
lic performance by the St
Cecelia Youth Marching Band.

In her remarks, the Deputy
Prime Minister, who still



idence of Mr Amos Ferguson,
gave those in attendance much
food for. thought as she
recounted the life and times of

_ her distinguished constituent.

Included among the many
gems of wisdom that she
uttered was this profound
admonition: “Despite the
international acclaim that Mr
Ferguson had achieved, like
her, he too has elected to
remain in that humble com-
munity and build from within,
rather than move out to more
affluent surroundings and later
refer to it as a ghetto.” She,
too, was most effusive in her
congratulations to Mr Fergu-
son.

The humble being that he
has always been, Mr Ferguson
declined to give any response
to the many tributes accorded
him, deferring instead to be
entertained again by the group
Friends, as they gave a mov-
ing rendition of the late E
Clement Bethel’s song
“Praise”. Afterwards, Cultural
Director Dr Nicolette Bethel,
the late Mr Bethel’s daughter,
gave the vote of thanks.

M: Bernadette
Christie, wife of

Prime Minister the Hon Perry
G Christie, and Lady Mar-

late former Prime Minister Sir

ly unveiled the new Amos Fer-

the southern end of the thor-
oughfare. A reception fol-
lowed in tents erected at the
same venue.

What we found to be most
gratifying about the entire
occasion was the fact that the
celebration took place just out-
side the residence of the hon-

- ouree, where the Amos Fer-

guson Art Gallery is also locat-
ed. This wise idea afforded
many of his lifelong neigh-
bours and friends to share in
this historic occasion, at which
one of their very own was the
recipient of a most deserving
honour.

Finally, and for posterity’s
sake, we wish to publish two
items about Mr Amos Fergu-
son, a great Bahamian who is
so internationally known and
acclaimed abroad and yet, per-
haps until this week, was some-
how lesser known and regard-
ed at home.

The first is a copy of a letter
from the Smithsonian Institu-
tion’s Anacostia Museum,

It reads thus:

ROSS OES

“Mr Amos Ferguson was «
born in Exuma, the Bahamas. ’:
As a young man he moved to ~
Nassau and took a job polish- *
ing furniture to support his |:
family. Mr Ferguson had -:
sketched and drawn since he ''
was a boy, but did not attempt '
painting until he was an adult. |:
He found that he loved mak- «.
ing pictures. Today his paint- ‘
ings cover a wide range of sub- '
jects.

“Mr Ferguson’s first one- ‘.

Wadsworth Atheneum Muse- â„¢

in March, 1985, and it travelled «,

interim government was subse-
quently put in place using some
of the elements outlined in the
CARICOM Prior Action Plan.

However, in the view of
CARICOM, the fundamental
tenets of democratic practice
and behaviour had been com-
promised.

* “We cannot vacillate on prin-
ciple since it is essential to our
security as small states. Con-
tinuing violations of the prin-
ciples laid down in the CARI-
COM Charter of Civil Society
have made it impossible for the
community to receive repre-
sentatives of Haiti in its coun-
cils,”. said Mr Mitchell.

Mr Mitchell said that CARI-
COM remains committed to
the people of Haiti. To this end,
the Caribbean Community put
in place mechanisms such as
the Assistance Programme, of
which electoral support is a key

component.

The minister also had some
strong words to say about
Haiti’s interim administration.

He said that the interim gov-
ernment must be held to inter-
nationally recognised standards
with regard to respect for fun-
damental civil and political
rights, due process and the rule
of law.

“Allegations of egregious
abuses at the hands of the
police must be fully investigat-
ed. The prolonged detention of
Lavalas leaders and activists
without trial or charges, can
only be construed as arbitrary
detention on the basis of polit-
ical affiliation. Such persons
should be released forthwith,”
Mr Mitchell said.

This serious breach of fun-
damental rights, he said, is
exacerbated by a persistent fail-
ure to prosecute the rebels who
led the coup against Mr Aris-
tide for their criminal activity.

“Such an approach also hin-
ders the establishment of an
enabling political climate with-
out which peace and security
cannot be sustained,” the min-
ister said.

The mission on which Dr
Maynard has embarked takes
place until January 22.

ILAC deals with post con-
flict situations and works close-
ly with the UN and its agen-
cies.

In Haiti it will work with the
UN Mission for the stabilisa-
tion of Haiti (MINUSTAH).

Dr Maynard was one of the
funding directors of ILAC and
served on its board of directors
for several years.

ILAC is an umbrella organi-
sation for more than 30 inter-

@ By BRENT STUBBS
Senior Sports Reporter

THE St Andrew’s Hurricanes played their best game of



the-season; but it still wasn’t'good enough to put thenrin:the |.

Bahamas Association of Independent Secondary Schools’
win column.

The hapless Hurricanes couldn’t hold off the weary and
man-shortened Kingsway Academy Saints on Friday at
Kingsway Academy as the Saints marched to a 64-59 over-
time victory.

Kingsway Academy, who improved to 7- 2, had a long day
as their players had to rush from the Thomas A Robinson
Track and Field Stadium where they participated in their
inter-house track and field meet.

But in the extra three minutes, they managed to out-
score St Andrew’s 9-5 to leave the Hurricanes winless in ten
games.

“This was actually the best game my guys played all year,
so it just goes to show that if we had concentrated a little
more, how much better we could be,” said Hurricanes’

coach, Edgar Pickstock.




Pickstock, who was irate with layers so much that he -
was charged with a technical for ii got some relief when
big centre Probese Leo managed to hip in an offensive ©

' rebound just before the buzzer sounded to end the Bante in

regulation.

It was a good redemption for Leo who, only moments. ear- :
lier, missed a big one-handed slam dunk attempt on a ‘fast. |
break. tad 3

But in overtime, the Saints got two consecutive baskets
from Adrian Wilkinson and Clinton Brown and.a pair of.
free throws from Stephen Duncombe Jr to come from a 58-
57 deficit. to snatch a 62-57.

Clock

They were never threatened after that as they worked the
ball around, cutting down time off the clock, to stay ahead
for the win.

While there was some consolation for coach Pidistock and’
his Hurricanes, coach Geno Bullard wasn’t too ETIDTESEEY
with his Saints.

“This was probably the worst game we played all year. P'll

take the win, but I’m not too happy with it,” he said. “T think
our players got too arrogant.

“When you win back-to-back, you get too relaxed. We
just had to shake it off, refocus and get back to the things
that we have been doing all season long.”

- Wilkinson led Kingsway Academy with a side high 17
points. Duncombe had 14; Ira Roker 12; Brown 11 and
Travis Sands chipped in with six.

Did the track meet have that much effect on their ability
to play better than they did?

Duncombe didn’t feel so.

“We came out lackadaisical and took the team for grant-

ed,” he admitted. “Our guys didn’t show our intensity at all.

We felt we could have easily beaten this team.”

Leo ended leading the Hurricanes with a game high 18.
Duran Carey popped two three-pointers to finish with 10;
Dwayne Tucker had nine and K. Williams contributed
eight.

. Despite not playing as well as coach Bullard had antici-
pated, the Saints were still able to aU the Hurricanes
in every facet of the game.

And every time that St Andrew’s made a dent in their
lead, Kingsway Academy were able to come back with a run
of their own to stay out front.

The Saints played a solid defensive game, although they
didn’t shoot as wei! as they are capable of and played like
they wanted the game much more than the Hurricanes.

“But we can’t continue to play like this and expect to win
the big games,” coach Bullard summed up.

As for the Hurricanes, coach Pickstock said they just
have to go back to the drawing board. They came so close
to winning that, maybe in their next game, they will even-
tually succeed.

BRITAIN'S Tim Hen-
| man retired from Davis Cup
tennis on Friday to concen-
trate on winning his first
- Grand Slam, according to
' Associated Press.
; “At this stage in my
3 career the combination of
; the Davis Cup format and
the rigors of the ATP tour
have made it necessary for
me to make this decision,"
Henman said on his Web
site.

"After much deliberation
I'm confident this offers me
the best opportunity to fulfill
some unachieved goals I
have left in the game."

Henman is a four-time
semifinalist at Wimbledon
and has won 11 singles titles
since turning pro in 1993,
but has never reached a
Grand Slam final. He's cur-
rently in Melbourne, Aus-
tralia, preparing for the Aus-
tralian Open which starts
Monday.

Record

Henman had a 36-14
record in Davis Cup. He
played in September's 3-2
loss to Austria in a World
Group playoff. Britain plays
Israel in March in the sec-
ond round of the
Euro/Africa Zone.

"Tim's magnificent record
speaks for itself and while it
is a great loss I completely
understand and respect his
decision to retire from Davis

Cup and focus on the grand |

slams and tour," British
Davis Cup captain Jeremy
Bates said.

Britain hasn't advanced
past the first round of the
top-tier World Group since
1986. The country has see-
sawed between the World
Group and the regional
qualifying groups for 20
years.

Henman's retirement.
from Davis Cup leaves
Canadian-born Greg Rused-
ski as Britain's top-ranked
player for the competition.

"We have a host of tal-
ented players coming
through and despite losing
someone of Tim's caliber, I
remain very optimistic about
the future," Bates said.

Federer
‘confident’
ahead
of Open

@ BASEL, Switzerland

ROGER Federer said Fri-
day that he is confident he can
defend his title in the Aus-
tralian Open, which is set to
begin Monday in Melbourne,
according to Associated Press.

In an interview with his
hometown newspaper Basler
Zeitung, the world tennis No.
1 said he has found an "equi-
librium" on the eve of the sea-
son's first grand slam event.

"I know what I can do _
and J know that I can call on
my strengths when it is neces-
sary,” he told the paper. "I
proved that to myself last
year."

Federer won the Australian
Open, Wimbledon and U.S.
Open in 2004, the first man
since Mats Wilander in 1988
to win three of the season's
four majors.

The 23-year-old Swiss star
said his main challengers for
the Australian Open title will
be 2004 runner-up Marat
Safin, Australian Lleyton
Hewitt, and Americans Andy
Roddick and Andre Agassi,
"if he in fact plays."

Agassi, who has won the
tournament four times, pulled
out of his Kooyong Classic
match Thursday against Andy
Roddick with muscle tight-
ness in his right hip. He is
expected to recover in time
for the start of the Australian
Open.

"I do not expect any sur-
prises" from players outside
the top of the world rankings,
Federer said.

Federer will open against
Fabrice Santoro of France
and could meet Thailand's
Paradorn Srichaphan in the
third round, Agassi in the
quarterfinals and Safin, seed-
ed fourth, in the semifinals.

2

Machines and the Jordan Prince William Falcons

all expectations with SAC claiming a slim 69-

67 victory over the Falcons

@ PHILADELPHIA



TERRELL OWENS is on
crutches and probably finished
until next season, according to
Associated Press.

Randy Moss is limping from
a sprained right ankle that has
cost him: practice time, but is
expected to be on the field Sun-
day when his Minnesota
Vikings play the Eagles in a
second-round playoff game.

Advantage Minnesota? Not
so fast.

While Philadelphia certainly

will miss Owens, the team's

most dangerous playmaker —
and lightning rod — the Eagles
likely can handle his absence
because of their staunch
defense. And the key to that
defense is the superb sec-
ondary, which is capable of
shutting down even a healthy
Moss, Minnesota's most dan-
gerous playmaker — and light-
ning rod.

"T think we are kind of com-





ing together and getting on the

same page," All-Pro. corner--

back Lito Sheppard said.
"Maybe it is because of the type
of year we have had so far.
Everybody is feeling comfort-
able and a lot more confident.

"You have to go against the
best in order to be one of the
best. This is another opportu-
nity for me and the rest of the
secondary to prove that we can
play with the best."

Effective

Moss might not be at his best,
but he wasn't completely
healthy last weekend and he
had a big game at Green Bay.
He wasn't so effective in
Philadelphia's 27-16 victory
over Minnesota in Week 2, with
a costly pass interference penal-
ty along with eight receptions
for 69 yards and a 4-yard touch-
down late in the game.

Moss couldn't get open deep
against the secondary, which



had been revamped in the off-__
~season and had new starters at

cornerback in Sheppard and
Sheldon Brown. That sec-
ondary has jelled so well that
free safety Brian Dawkins also
made the All-Pro team, plus
strong safety Michael Lewis,
Dawkins and Sheppard are
going to the Pro Bowl.

So the experience gained by
Sheppard, Brown and Lewis as
starters, and the leadership of
Dawkins, have been critical in
the development of the defen-
sive backfield, perhaps the best
secondary in football.

"They've got a lot of confi-
dence," defensive coordinator
Jim Johnson said. "They might
give up a big play, but they
won't back off. They are very
competitive guys. They'll come
right back and challenge a guy."

They'll be challenging Moss
from the outset, along with
Nate Burleson, who stepped up
his performances when Moss
was sidelined for three games

Defence is key for Philadelphia Ea

_and parts. of.two-others -by-a--

hamstring injury. But it's a
matchup that favors Philly.
"We have come a long way
in a short period of time,"
Dawkins said. "We have come
to a point of trusting each oth-
er and knowing that each guy
can do his job with excellence.

Important

"The most important thing
on a football field, and espe-
cially in the secondary, is trust.
You have to have trust that
each guy can do his job and
have a good time doing it and
not have to worry about a guy."

Minnesota's secondary isn't
nearly in the class of Philadel-
phia's, although Johnson
praised Antoine Winfield,
signed this season as a free
agent. Not having to deal with
Owens will make things easier
for Winfield and the other
defensive backs.

But the Eagles have another







prime weapon, running back
Michael Westbrook, who cre-
ates mismatches against Min-
nesota's unimpressive line-
backers and safeties. Philadel-
phia reached its third straight
NEC championship game with-
out Owens, then with San Fran-
cisco, and the injured West-
brook last year.

Now, the Eagles have a
healthy Westbrook and a better
defense.

So do the Vikings have an
edge?

If they do, offensive coordi-
nator Scott Linehan believes it
stems from not getting blown
out by the Eagles in Game 2.

"We've gone into that envi-
ronment and put ourselves in
position to win the football
game, and didn't do it," Line-
han said. "We still are a young
team, and for our team to have
that experience in their mind,
knowing we've been there
before, is certainly not going to
hurt us."
