Passengers
assaulted and
thrown. of! | ow

By KARIN HERIG:
Tribune Staff Reporter

AN URGENT appeal to.

reform the country’s “unsafe”
public transport system went
out yesterday after three people
were assaulted on a jitney and
thrown off the vehicle while it
was moving at high speed.

The passengers were attacked
and brutally beaten before
being tossed off the bus on Fri-
day evening, it emerged last
night.

Speaking with The Tribune,
one of the victims, Stephanie
Sturrup, 34, of Westchester,
England, said the ordeal began
after she boarded a jitney trav-
elling to Pinewood/Kennedy
Sub-division on Friday evening.

Mrs Sturrup said there were
six people, including the bus dri-
ver, on board at the time and
that two- men attacked her and
two other passengers and threw
them off the bus.

All three victims received
serious injuries, with one pas-

senger still in hospital recover- °

ing last night.
“T was very scared. Where I

come from we don’t know.

about such experiences,” she
said. ©

A second victim, Sharad
Lightfoot, said he was afraid for
his life. “I thought I was going
to die,” he said.

Both victims and their fami-
lies yesterday called for an
immediate reform of the public
transportation system.

Mrs Sturrup, who has been

living in the country for eight
years and is married to a
Bahamian, said this was her first
and last time travelling on a jit-
ney.

“Never, ever again will I ride
on a bus in this country,” she
vowed.

Mr Lightfoot concurred and
said he also would not be using
the public transportation sys-
tem again.

President of the Public Tran-

sit Association (PTA) Rubin -

Rahming yesterday encouraged
all Bahamians who witnes®
crimes occurring on buses, “or
things like the bus driver drink-
ing alcohol at the wheel,” to
write down the licence plate
number and report it to police.

He said his organisation will
be launching a 24-hour hotline
for people to seek assistance
with problems concerning the
public transportation system lat-
er this week.

Mr Rahming said that with
the greater influx of investors
and tourists to the Bahamas,
the bus system had be brought
on par with international stan-
dards.

“We have to bring it to a
higher level. With this upcom-
ing increase of hotels on Par-
adise Island and Cable Beach
we are just creating a greater
venue to display the country’s
negative aspects,” he-said.

Meanwhile, details of Friday’s _

attack were outlined to The Tri-
bune.

Massive manhunt

By KARIN HERIG
Tribune Staff Reporter

POLICE launched a massive
manhunt over the weekend for
an escaped prisoner wanted for
questioning in connection with
several armed robberies and a
rape in New Providence.

Carlos Dexter Conover, 22,
of Winton Meadows, was being
held at the Grove Police Sta-
tion when he made his escape
on Saturday at 8.25am.

Supt Hulan Hanna told The
Tribune that Conover was in his

cell when he asked to use the
bathroom.

An officer who responded to
his request said he was over-
powered by the prisoner just as
he was opening the cell door,
said Mr Hanna.

After his escape, Conover
fled into the Yellow Elder com-
munity.

Police immediately conduct-
ed a big search of the area, but
were unable to recover
the escaped prisoner, said Mr

Conference hears of Bahamas’ successes in drugs fight

By GLADSTONE
THURSTON
Bahamas Information
Services

THE Institute for Social Jus-
tice’s recent conference was
apprised of the Bahamas’ suc-
cesses in the war against illicit
drug trafficking and implemen-
tation of the urban renewal pro-
gramme.

Deputy Commissioner of
Police John Rolle and ASP
Stephen Dean, co-ordinator of
the Farm Road Urban Renewal

Project, were guest presenters at
the Institute’s conference on
‘Breaking the cycle: Violence, ille-
gal drugs and youth crimes in
urban and rural communities.’

The conference was sponsored
by Southern University Criminal
Justice Graduate Programme, the
Nelson Mandela School of Public
Policy, both of Baton Rouge,
Louisiana, and the Institute for
Social Justice.

Convened on February 2, it
was attended by‘criminal justice
professionals, law enforcement
officials, social and public health



workers, community leaders and
university students.

Based in Decatur, Georgia, the
Institute is a non-profit organisa-
tion founded to provide techni-
cal assistance and expertise to
criminal justice, law enforcement
and community-based agencies
through research, training, con-
ferences and seminars.

Deputy Commissioner Rolle
told the conference that the
Bahamas’ response to the threat
of drug trafficking has been “swift
and decisive.”

As the leading law enforce-
ment agency in the Bahamas, the
Royal Bahamas Police Force was
given the “awesome task” of
identifying drug traffickers and
dismantling their operation, he
explained.

“This task, although daunting,
was willingly accepted by the fine
men and women of the Police
Force who, with a zero tolerance
approach to illicit drug trafficking,
rose to the challenge,” said Mr

‘Rolle.

Partners

He confirmed that last year

Bahamian police in conjunction
with their law enforcement part-
ners seized 1,632 pounds of
cocaine, 4,097 pounds of mari-
juana, 1,552 marijuana_plants;
arrested 1,612 persons, and seized
$453,722.75.

In March, 1982, the success of
the interdiction efforts was fur-
ther enhanced when the Bahamas
government joined forces with
the governments of the oui
States and Britain.

They formed a unique, but
highly successful tripartite agree-
ment code name Operation
Bahamas, America and Turks
and Caicos Island (OPBAT), Mr
Rolle explained.

“This innovative OPBAT
arrangement, coupled with the
enactment of new laws and the
aggressiveness of law enforce-
ment officials in the Bahamas,”
said Mr Rolle, “has to date result-
ed in the arrest and prosecution

of numerous major drug traffick-
ers and money launderers in the
Bahamas.”

Drug traffickers’ go-fast boats,
planes, yachts, freighters, vehi-
cles, houses, businesses and mil-
lions of dollars in cash have been

seized, Mr Rolle told the confer-

ence.

Enforcement Administration, the

the United States Department of .

Defence, the United States
Department of State, and the

-Police Force, numerous -notori-.

ous drug traffickers have been
prosecuted and extradited to the
United States. ;

“We in the Royal Bahamas
Police Force have come a long
way in our fight against drug traf-
fickers,” said Mr Rolle, “and have
come to realise that we are fight-
ing a vicious, formidable enemy.

“The battle for our citizens, our
streets, playgrounds, schools and
communities from the ‘angel of
death’ have not been easy. But, I
have come to tell you that the
tide is now turning on our side.

“We have redoubled our

Communities

Asst Supt Dean told of the flag-
ship Farm Road Urban Renewal

Project and its “unprecedented
success” in eleven other commu-
ities in the Bahamas.

The Urban Renewal Commu-
nity Policing Project, said Mr
Dean, is.a direct response to chal-
lenges facing a number of inner-
city communities — crime, poor
housing conditions, joblessness,
illiteracy, homelessness,
HIV/AIDS and other social ills.

“Tt is one of the most ambitious
crime reduction experiments in
the Force’s recent. history,” Mr
Dean told the conference.

“It is a comprehensive
approach to eradicating crime and
social decay.

« “It emphasises both innovation

jand the integration of the efforts

‘and resources of a wide range of
agencies and the community at
large.”

Within six weeks of its incep-
tion, the Farm Road Project, led
by a group of specially selected
police officers, visited every
household and business in the
community collecting informa-
tion about environmental con-

cerns, health issues, housing
problems and _ criminal
activities.

They were joined by represen-
tatives from the Department of
Social Services, the Ministry of
Housing, the Ministry of Health,
and the Ministry of Works.

The team moved derelict vehi-
cles, demolished abandoned
buildings, dismantled street drug
peddling groups, and arrested a
number of criminals, Mr Dean
reported.

In May, 2003, the Royal
Bahamas Police Force team was
awarded the Association of
Caribbean Commissioners of
Police Motorola Community
Policing Award in Bermuda
because of the success of the
Farm Road project.

Last year, the Bahamas Police
won the prestigious International
Association of Chiefs of Police
and ITT Industries. Community
Policing Award in Los Angeles.

“This community-based part-
nership and problem-solving
approach developed among the
government, police and commu-
nity has reduced historical
inequalities and improved the
quality of life in a number of dis-
advantaged urban communities,”
said Mr Dean.

“More importantly, this initia-
tive has developed into one of
the halimarks of the national

offensive against crime and vio-
“lence.”

Pastor Cedric Moss calls for more

=

humane process of repatriation

m@ By RUPERT
MISSICK Jr
Senior Staff Reporter

GOVERNMENT should
make the process of repa-
triation more humane by
providing illegal immi-
grants with the opportunity
to put their lives in order
before they are sent out of
the country, Pastor Cedric
Moss said yesterday.

Pastor Moss, along with
lawyers Fayne Thompson,
Eliezer Regnier and Paul
Moss, said the disruption
recent round-ups of Hait-
ian immigrants has caused
is inhumane.

To truly alleviate the
problem of illegal immigra-
tion, Pastor Moss said that
government must pass
stiff penalties for any per-
son who hires an illegal
alien.

Incentive

If this rule is strictly
enforced, it will eliminate
the incentive to come to
the county illegally and dis-
courage those hiring illegal
immigrants.

“In terms of natural jus-
tice, mercy and grace the
least our government can
do after so many years of
refusing to deal with the
illegal immigration prob-
lem is give notice to those
who must go.

“The minimum we can do
is say toa family sell your
home, sell your belongings,

The Bahamas, he said, is
already a country of two
cultures. “There is nothing
we can do about that. What
we can do is make one peo-

ple from these two cul- .

“The minimum we can do is
say to a family sell your home,

then we can complain.”



The pastor said that
Bahamians ought not do
with the Haitians in their
country what the Germans
did with the Jews in their
country, “use them as a
scapegoats.”
Lawyer Paul Moss said
that in a democracy a gov-
ernment should not seek to
uproot people without
allowing them some chance
to get their life in order.

“We want to make it
clear that we are not con-
doning violence in any form
and it is our hope that the
Nassau Village incidents
are not simulated else-
where in the country.

“But the kind of rhetoric
being exposed recently by

Pastor Cedric Moss

recent round-up of
Haitians, is in our view a
recipe for violence, ” said
Mr Moss.

Explode

Trade and Industry Min-
ister Leslie Miller in the
House of Assembly last
week said the Bahamas is
facing a “catastrophe” and
is sitting on a “timebomb”

which will explode unless '

the country deals realisti-
cally with the issue of ille-
gal immigration.

He claimed that afford-
able rental units are being
removed further from the
grasp of Bahamians
because of the high num-
ber of illegal immigrants in
the country.

Last month Bishop Neil
Ellis, pastor of Mount
‘Tabor Full Gospel Baptist
hurch, gave a sermon urg-
ing Prime Minister Perry
Christie to show “guts” in
dealing decisively with the
apparent lawlessness of
“foreign elements” in the
Bahamas.

Bishop Ellis was respond-

ing to last month’s Nassau
Village riot in which a
police car was burnt and
three members of the pub-
lic were shot and wounded.
Many believe that anti-

Haitian comments were the
“spark which ignited the sit-
‘uation.

Mr Moss said the coun-
try is facing a problem and
government must naturalise
Bahamians born to Haitian
parents “without further
delay”.

“They must also give sta-
tus to those who can estab-
lish ties to the county. They
must then repatriate-all
others who do not fall with-
in those categories,” he
said.

In addition, Mr Thomp-
son said it is imperative
that government seek to
find ways to,naturalise
those persons of Haitian
descent.who only know the
Bahamas as home and who
“are Bahamians but for the
fact that some minister has
yet to sign his citizenship
papers”.

He pointed out that,
based on some of the inter-
national agreements the
Bahamas has signed, no-
one can be stateless.

Mr Moss said the reality
is that children born in the
Bahamas to Haitian parents
are Bahamians.

“Tf some conclude that
they are causing the vio-
lence or packing local
schools we cannot say place
the blame on Haitians.
These are Bahamians. It
makes no sense to refer to
them as Haitian-Bahamians
because many of us do not
refer to.others as Ameri-
can-Bahamian or Afro-
Bahamian. ;

“They are’ Bahdinidad
and if people do not-like it
they must change the law
to fix it.

“And since we live
according to the rule of law
we have an obligation to
uphold it,” said Mr Moss.

Animosity won't solve Haitian problem

IN THE Bahamas there is a growing
atmosphere of xenophobia — fear or hatred
of strangers or foreigners. This comes at a
time in our history when the world commu-
nity is promoting globalization, a coming
together of peoples, of ideas, of commerce
and the shrinking of borders.

It is true that the Bahamas has a very seri-
ous — and delicate — immigration problem;
a neglected problem built up over many
years.

However, inflammatory, emotive words
will only make the situation worse. The recent
riot in Nassau. Village was sparked, it is
alleged, by an ill-considered remark by a
Bahamian police officer. A young Haitian

girl took offence at the words she claimed -

belittled her father and said so'in no uncertain
terms.

The verbal abuse got out of hand, involving
the small community and ending in an
exchange of gunfire, the burning of a police
car, the shooting and wounding of three
members of the public, and the injuring of
two police officers.

Words sparked the riot and intemperate
words, especially from the pulpit and the
halls of parliament will only turn up the heat
and make an: already dangerous situation,
worse.

It is true; in the words of Trade and Indus-
try Minister Leslie Miller that we are facing a
“catastrophe” and “sitting on a time bomb”,
but his fiery words only put a match to that
bomb.

Many of our readers will recall British
politician Enoch Powell, who at the time of
his death in 1998, was described as the “best
prime minister Britain never had.”

His brilliant political career crashed in 1968°

when, in his “Rivers of Blood” speech in the
House of Commons he warned Britain of
the threat to national unity from the influx of
immigrants from her former colonies. He
predicted an increase in crime, poverty and
the fragmentation of British society.

He was branded as a racist at the time and
removed from Edward Heath’s shadow cab-
inet. His words put an end to his goal of
becoming prime minister.

Of course, many Bahamians who became
former colonists of the Mother Country on
Independence in 1973 and who would have
been included in Powell’s characterisation,
thought he had committed blasphemy. But
Britain was faced with what the Bahamas is

grappling with today — only on a much larg-
er and more complicated scale.

Could Mr Miller qualify for the “racist”
label after his House of Assembly outburst?

“This is my Bahamas,” he told the House,
“this is all I have.” It is true that this is our
Bahamas and this is all we have. But we must
never forget that somewhere in our family
tree an immigrant put down roots and called
these islands “home”. He was assimilated
into society.

For example in 1834 the tailor Stephen
Dillet was not only one of the first three
blacks to sit in the House of Assembly, he was
the first Haitian. And not only was he one of
the first blacks in the Bahamas’ history to sit
on the grand jury, again he was the first Hait-

- ian. Today’s Dillets are his descendants,

whether they spell their name Dillet or Dil-
lette. No one questioned his right to partici-
pate in society then and today his descen-
dants would probably join Mr Miller in claim-
ing: “This is my Bahamas, this is all I have...”

Many Haitians, and foreigners of every
ethnic background, make up the Bahamian
society. However, as the political situation
worsens in Haiti — it was a Haitian revolu-
tion that brought Stephen Dillet to our shores
— Haitians started to arrive in larger num-

bers.

The late Sir Roland Symonette, the
Bahamas’ first premier, sensed future trouble

_ and invited the politicians of the day to direct

their minds to the growing problem. Obvi-
ously, they did not have the foresight to share
his concern, because after his initial attempt
at talks, no more was heard of the potential
problem.

Over the years the Haitians have swamped
our shores. Bahamians see them as a threat to
their future security. Haitians, on the other
hand, unfairly treated, abused and frightened
by the growing animosity don’t know where
to turn.

The fact that the Haitians are here— as
someone commented yesterday — is because
there are jobs to be filled, and these jobs are
available because, according to Bahamians
who don’t want them, these are “Haitian
jobs”.

The Haitians were needed, and so they
came. There was no government regulation
and so too many came. Today the situation is
out of hand.

» e@ We shall continue this discussion tomor-
row.





Covenant in

Constitution

EDITOR, The Tribune.

WITH the Izmerlian Cable
Beach Development proposal
understood under serious
evaluation by Government I
wish to raise an interesting
matter which must be serious-
ly considered before the Gov-

ernment of The Bahamas goes .

ahead again to erroneously
include ‘exclusive’ casino or
other concessions and
covenants which basically
and fundamentally are in con-
travention of The Constitu-
tion.

Refer to the Heads of

International Investments Ltd,
now Kerzner International
and the Government of The

Bahamas as tabled in Parlia- |

ment by Rt Hon Hubert
Ingraham on August 19, 1993
specifically page three of the
Heads of Agreement where
the Agreement deals with

other than the obligation to
the Ramada Resort (South

ther casino Licence would be
issued on the island of New
Providence for 20 years as of
1993 (2013).

December 4, 2004 edition of The Bahama Journal. The cap-
tion read “Disabled Persons Hopeful”. The story espoused
the struggle for disabled persons to be recognised by society,
and to be given equal opportunities in mainstream society in |
The Bahamas. I encourage your readers to read thé story.
While I (reluctantly) cannot fully subscribe to the con-
tention that disabled persons should be treated as equal to
able-bodied persons in society, Iam a proponent of making
the necessary provisions in society ‘which would have the
effect of causing life to be more convenient for our incon-

I only have some idea of what the disabled in The
Bahamas is lobbying the government to do. And so, in my
humble opinion, the story lacked specificity. My guess is
that they (the disabled) have intimate knowledge of what '
(they believe) needs to be done, and have presented those |
proposals to the government. I was especially encouraged (by
the story) that the Minister of Social Services, the Hon
Melanie Griffin, was working along with these persons in
pursuit of (the elusive) equality.

This one Bahamian feels satisfied that the Ministry is tak-
ing into account the plight of these disadvantaged mem-
bers of this society and that (from only a public percep-
tion) the Hon Melanie Griffin empathises with their position

lame the employers

and not the Haitians

S EVERAL stories in
the last few weeks
demonstrate the basic truth
of what many have been
saying for a long time: the
levels of illegal immigration
into this country and the
consequent uncontrolled
formation of Haitian com-
munities throughout our
islands are a recipe for
nothing but trouble.

. But before we resort to a
pogrom against the Haitians
in our midst we must first
ask ourselves who is really
to blame for the way things
have turned out. Why, ina
high- income and expensive
economy like ours, do
apparently endless oppor-
tunities exist for low-
skilled, low-income labour?
“In the case of the Mud,

outside Treasure Cay in
Abaco, the culprits appear
to be the owners of a few
farming operations who
have modelled themselves
on a regressive plantation
business model, in which
unskilled, low-tech employ-
ment is the basis of their
business success. (At least
in one case, the owners
actually live in Florida, far
away from the squalid ghet-
toes and underclass that
their business success
requires).

Typically, employers who ©

favour illegal Haitian
labour make the claim that,
owing to low productivity

and high expectations
among Bahamian workers,
high numbers of migrants
are required to fuel the
economy.

IE reality, many of the
problems associated

_with productivity among

Bahamian blue collar
labour are attributable
directly to business models
which place little or no
emphasis on training, pro-
ductivity and morale.

Motor-cyclist
is year’s 10th
traffic fatality

@ By KARIN HERIG
_ Tribune Staff Reperter

“THE country’ s tenth traffic fatality of the
_ | year was recorded over the weekend when a
| motor-cyclist collided with two vehicles in

| the East Street area.

Police reported that 27-year-old Romeo

times cars don’t take notice of them and
either abruptly stop in front of a. biker, or

said.

| Storr, of Brougham Street, was travelling

| north on East Street South on his purple
| Honda RX Speedbike when near East Street
| Shopping Plaza he collided with a black Ford

| Explorer.

{| “The Ford Explorer, however, did not stop,
| but kept on going,” Supt Hulan Hanna told

The Tribune yesterday.

| ° The officer said the impact propelled Mr
| Storr’s motor-cycle into a second vehicle.

Helmet

“Mr Storr was wearing a helmet, but he
was seriously injured and was brought to
Princess Margaret Hospital where he died
on Saturday at 6.05pm,” Mr Hanna said.

This incident once again caused police to
caution motor-cyclists to “drive defensive-

ly.”

Mr Hanna said that even when a motor-
-| cyclist adheres to the laws of the road and
| wears a helmet, he can still become the victim

of an accident.

“Motor-cyclists are very vulnerable, some-

pull into their pathway without noticing: it, a he

they are especially at risk.

Intertwined

“We have so many intersecting roads and
many are so closely intertwined, if you’re
travelling at a high speed it is difficult to

avoid someone turning in from a corner.

Bikes get out of control at high speeds and
are easily airborne,” he said.

Mr Hanna added, however, that the recent-

ly opened dialogue between the Royal
Bahamas Police Force and the Bahamas
Motorcycle Association is expected to

bring improvement to the road traffic situa-

tion.

“Under the leadership of Jermaine Davis,
we believe that the bikers are heading in the
right direction.

“We look forward to the future
discussions we will perhaps have on how to
make bikes safer and how bikers can better

pass on information to the police,” said Mr

Hanna.

the context of the colonial
model, which sees cheap,
loyal and obedient labour
as the sole and fundamental
basis of comparative advan-

Nepotism and a low
expectation of advancement

traditional Bahamian busi-
nesses and run directly
counter to all of the pro-
gressive workplace devel-
opments taking place in
more advanced countries.
Unsurprisingly, the con-

sequent low emphasis on —

ment has had its most pro-
found effects on those busi-

model.

Unsurprisingly, too, these

greatest pressure to breach

Medical experts say although a person is infected by TB
germs, it does not mean that he/she has the TB disease.

Germs |

According to a TB resource website, after TB germs .
enter the body, in most cases, body defences control the
germs by building a wall around them, the way a scab

forms over a cut.

The germs can stay alive inside these walls for years in

an "inactive" state.

While TB germs are inactive, they can't harm the per-

To protect an infected person from getting TB disease,
the doctor may give the person medicine to take for a
period of time. Medicine is given depending on the infect-
ed person's health, age and closeness of contact to some-

one with active TB disease.

the real motivation for their

The OAS needs modern

and creative leader

l™§ By US AMBASSADOR
JOHN D ROOD

REGIONAL governments
will soon have the opportunity
to choose a dynamic and for-
ward-leaning new leader for a
key hemispheric forum. That
is why the United States is urg-
ing our neighbours and allies
to join us in endorsing former
Salvadoran President Francisco
Flores for the important and
prestigious post of Secretary
General of the Organisation of
American States.

We are proud to stand
behind President Flores. A
modern Central American, he
represents a new generation of

hemispheric leaders who view
the challenges of our 21st cen-
tury, globalised world not as
threats to be feared, but as
opportunities to be embraced.

Demands

As a former president, Fran-
cisco Flores knows the
demands of leadership and the
pressures of decision-making
that are the everyday responsi-
bilities of a chief executive. In
E] Salvador, a country not long
ago racked by civil war and
economic dislocation, he con-
fronted great challenges, made
the tough decisions, and suc-
ceeded — playing a central role

century, globalised world not as

in the birth of a new El Sal-
vador socially at peace, eco-
nomically vibrant and outward-
looking, and politically stable.

On January 27, President
Flores addressed the OAS Per-
manent Council to outline his
program to lead the OAS as a
representative of Central
America, placing specific
emphasis on the need for that
regional body to pay more
attention to the needs and aspi-
rations of smaller states.

He also focused on three
main themes: defeating pover-
ty with economic growth,
improving the OAS role in
preparing for and responding
to natural disasters, and. pro-
viding a vision for the organi-
sation over the next five years.

President Flores suggested
that deeper regional integra-
tion will enhance the competi-
tiveness of small states seeking
to take full advantage of the
benefits of the 21st century
global economy. He offered
as an example the Central
America Free Trade Agree-
ment as to what could be
achieved through concerted
effort.

tilateral financial organisations,

and job creation.

Vision
President Flores’ vision for
the hemisphere is the vision of

the OAS: freedom, democra-
cy, prosperity, and stability for

a region that has known too.

much turmoil. He is a princi-
pled pragmatist with a proven
record, a committed democrat
and a multilateralist, who
embodies the values that are
at the core of the work of the
OAS.

President Flores was chief
executive during a difficult time
in El Salvador’s history. The
United States believes this
experience will allow him to
stand on equal footing with the
region’s leaders as the OAS
confronts great challenges, such
as post-conflict reconstruction
and the painful process of rec-
onciliation. Haiti is one case
that comes to mind.

The United States believes
the OAS needs fresh, creative,
and resolute leadership, based
on a deep appreciation for the
benefits of regional action and

hemispheric unity. We have no

doubt that Francisco Flores can
guide the organisation in its
quest to strengthen the institu-
tions that underpin regional
prosperity so that: all citizens
of the Americas enjoy the ben-
efits of freedom.

FROM page one |

At 6.15pm two male pas-
sengers on the jitney des-
tined for the Kennedy Sub-
division suddenly attacked
a third man, Mrs Sturrup
reported.

In the area of Baillou Hill
Road she then watched as
the two attackers threw the
man, known to her only as
‘Matthew’, out of the mov-
ing bus.

Mrs Sturrup said she
assumed they had removed

“him from the bus because

he had not paid the fare.

Hill Road the bus stopped
and passenger Sharad
Lightfoot boarded.

Mrs Sturrup said she then
witnessed the two men,
who had attacked Matthew
just a few minutes before,
launch an assault on Mr
Lightfoot.

“They punched him in
the face and tackled him,”
she said.

Recalling the incident,
Mr Lightfoot, 25, of
Mahogany Street, said the
men took turns in punch-
ing him in the face.

“They were trying to get
to my wallet and I wouldn’t
let them,” he said.

Mr Lightfoot said he was
finally able to make it to
the door of the bus and
prise it open.

“T kept calling to the bus

‘driver to help and stop the
‘bus, but instead he just

sped up, he was doin
about 50mph.

“They kept pushing me
and then they threw me off
the bus,” he said.

Mrs Sturrup said she saw
Mr Lightfoot hold on to the
outside of the bus door
before he was thrown off in
the Pinewood area.

“T was sliding all over the
road and then I hit my head
on a wall and lost con-
sciousness,” Mr Lightfoot
said.

He said the next thing he
remembered was waking up
in a pool of his ‘own blood

without any memory of the.

for about 10-15 minutes
and then I managed to
struggle home. At home it
finally all came flooding
back what had happened to
me,” he said.

Mr Lightfoot said he
received severe head
injuries.

Mrs Sturrup said after Mr
Lightfoot had been force-
fully removed from the jit-
ney, the two men assaulted
her, demanding that she
hand over her handbag.

“They grabbed my bag
and I refused to give it to
them,” she recalled.

She said she tried to
appeal to the bus driver for
help, without success.

Mrs Sturrup said she was
thrown out of the bus
somewhere close to the
Kennedy Sub-division.

“Afterwards I went to
South Beach police station
to report the incident and
then I went to the hospi-

‘tal,” she said.

Mrs Sturrup received
fractures to her face and
lacerations “all about the
body.” .

The passenger known as
‘Matthew’ is still in hospital
recovering from his
injuries. ;

According to Mrs Stur-
rup and Mr Lightfoot,
police are holding the bus
driver for questioning.

They wished to commend
the officers of the South
Beach police station for

their “quick and efficient

‘Strength’ of
Atlantis sees
Kerzner EPS
estimate rise

By NEIL HARTNELL
Tribune Business Editor

&
Expectations of “continued
strength” at Paradise Island’s
Atlantis resort have caused a

- Wall Street investment bank to -

raise its first quarter earnings
per share (EPS) estimate for
Kerzner International to $1.17
from $1.15, with its 2005 full-

year EPS forecast also raised -

by $0.02 to $2.66.

Joseph Greer, the Bear
Stearns analyst who covers
Kerzner International, said in
a research note following the

announcement of the.compa-.

ny’s 2004 fourth quarter and full
year figures, that while the Par-
adise Island outlook remained
rosy, it was still retaining its

IndiGO’s Grand
Bahama launch

set for March 1

Urges PUC to prevent more
BTC market ‘manipulation’

By.NEIL HARTNELL
Tribune Business Editor

IndiGO Networks will for-
mally launch fixed-line voice
services on Grand Bahama on
March 1, its president told The
Tribune. He added that while
the company did not oppose the
Bahamas Telecommunications
Company’s (BTC) lower long-
distance and inter-island tariffs,
it was urging regulators to
ensure that the incumbent car-
rier was not allowed to again
“manipulate” the market.

Paul Hutton-Ashkenny said
the company had experienced
“a good steady increase across
the board” in terms of New
Providence business since it first
lauftehed its pre-paid and com-
mi customers services on
D ber 1.

He added that IndiGo Net-
works would have launched its
fixed-line services in Grand
Bahama “before now”, but had
been delayed by waiting for
interconnection circuits to be
provided by BTC.

Those had been installed and
were being tested over the
remainder of February, before
the formal March 1 launch,
which will initially involve pre-
paid cards and services for com-
mercial customers.

Mr Hutton-Ashkenny said
the build out of IndiGo’s wire-
less network was “on track”,

and the company would launch —

services in Abaco “as soon as
BTC gives us the interconnec-
tion circuits. It’s as simple as
that. They were ordered in
December, and as soon as we
get them we'll launch in Aba-
co”

The Abaco wireless network
will cover Marsh Harbour,
Dundas Town, Murphy Town,
Treasure Cay and Man O’-War
Cay.

Mr Hutton-Ashkenny said
IndiGo Networks hoped to pro-
vide a full residential service,
which would involve supplying
the company’s own trunk

phone, to New Providence and .

Grand Bahama customers by
this summer. Currently, they
were having to use a BTC
phone rather than an IndiGo
phone.

Mr Hutton-Ashkenny said
the company had made a sub-
mission to the Public Utilities
Commission (PUC), . the

‘ telecommunications sector, on’

BTC’s application for the lower
long distance rates it'unveiled in
early October, supposedly as
part of a four-month promo-
tion, to be made permanent for
as long as it takes to decide on
BTC’s tariff rebalancing pro-
posal.

the company did not oppose

something it has done fre-

Allyson Maynard-Gibson,
minister of financial services
and investments, whose min-

the passage of the Copyright
Act last year had ensured the

IIPA was not pressing for the ®

Bahamas to be named to any

rowing the scope of the com-

Bahamas specifically
addressed that concern and
that, I am sure, is why the
Bahamas is not on any list.”

But the IIPA gives the
Bahamas no credit for passing
the Copyright Act 2004 in its
2005 submission to the US
“trade representative, claiming
this nation “still has not met
its commitments” under the
2000 agreement to bring the
compulsory licensing regime
into line with “international
copyright norms”.

The agreement was sealed
in an exchange of letters on
October 26 and November 9,
2000, and Mrs Maynard-Gib-
son hit back by saying the
IPA submission was factually
incorrect when The Tribune
brought it to her attention.

Under the terms of that
agreement, the MPAA and its
members were supposed to
enter “good faith negotia-
tions” with Cable Bahamas for
a commercial agreement that
would allow the latter to pro-
vide English-speaking pro-
gramming but pay royalty and
licence fees to the copyright
‘holders.

BTC’s lower rates, as this would benefit Bahamian residential and
business customers, reducing operating costs for the latter.

However, he explained that IndiGo did “stand up and say that
BTC should not have been allowed to manipulate the market in the
way it did. BTC got away with doing what it did”.

Many observers viewed BTC’s. four-month promotion as an
attempt to drive IndiGo out of the market through predatory pric-
ing, something the PUC and telecommunications sector regula-
tors are supposed to prevent. BTC was supposed to have obtained
the PUC’s permission for the lower promotional rates, but never
sought this before introducing them, and was now crying that it
would be placed in commercial difficulties without those rates
becoming permanent.

Mr Hutton-Ashkenny said BTC had now got the PUC to approve
the lower long distance and inter-island tariffs it had been seeking

all along, as it was now claiming that to raise them again following
the four-month promotion’s end would be tantamount to “eco-
nomic suicide”.

Felicity Johnson, BTC's vice-president of legal and regulatory
affairs, wrote in a letter to the PUC on January 20:that by targeting
20 per cent of BTC’s business customers IndiGo could threaten 80
per cent of its long-distance revenues.

‘But Mr Hutton-Ashkenny said: “For the. duration of the time.
when the interim rates are in play, there should be specific instruc-
tions that BTC can offer no more special promotions, discounts that |
would allow them to lower tariffs.

“They’ve got away with it once, they should not be allowed to get
away with it again.’

Winn-Dixie woes create

no ‘issues’ for B

By NEIL HARTNELL
Tribune Business Editor

ahamas Super-
markets’ parent,
Winn-Dixie, has
told The Tribune
that its financial

problems “do not create the |

same issues” for its Bahamian
subsidiary, as concerns mounted
last week over the US grocery
chain’s future following a $399.7
million quarterly loss.

A Winn-Dixie spokeswoman
said Bahamas Supermarkets,
which operates its 12 stores
under the City Markets and
Winn-Dixie brands, had _busi-
ness operations that were sepa-
rate from its US parent. It also
had different lines of credit and
financing from Bahamas-based
banks.

The spokeswoman said:
“Financial issues at Winn-Dixie
do not create the same issues
for stores in the Bahamas. We
have no plans to restructure our
operations in the Bahamas. In
fact, our operations there con-
tinue to be profitable and we
plan to go forward with plans
to improve our store facilities.”

She added that Bahamas
Supermarkets was set to release
its fiscal 2005 second quarter
financial results this week, fol-
lowing a Board of Directors
meeting.

The share price of its US-list-
ed parent, Winn-Dixie stores,
fell by 36 per cent on the New
York Stock Exchange (NYSE)
last Thursday, sparking market
speculation - hotly denied by
the company - that it might
have to file for Chapter 11
bankruptcy protection.

Analysts said the chain was
running out of time to win back
customers and market share,
having lost touch with con-
sumers and being squeezed by
competition from more power-

ful rivals, following years of |

under-investment i in its stores.
However, Winn-Dixie’s
shareholding in Bahamas
Supermarkets, which is around
75 per cent, with the remainder
held by Bahamian public share-
holders, is held through W-D

(Bahamas), a Bahamian com-
pany, thus providing a degree
of separation from the woes in
the US. -

Given its need for cash flow
and profit, Winn-Dixie is
unlikely to want to sell an enti-
ty that still generates a quarter-
ly profit, the latest one’ being
$0.9 million for the first quarter
2005.

It is understood that in the
worst-case scenario, that of a
Chapter 11 bankruptcy filing by
Winn-Dixie in the US, the only

impact on Bahamas Supermar- :

kets might be on its supply
chain.

It could possibly be forced to
seek new suppliers, particularly
for previous home brand prod-
uct, and might be unable to
obtain the same purchasing and
credit terms it enjoyed by being
part of a larger group. However,
its separate lines of credit and
financing, plus overall prof-
itability, mean this is an obstacle
that can be overcome.

And while Bahamas Super-
markets faces similar store-
related issues to its parent, it
told The Tribune earlier this
year that it planned to break
ground on a new Cable Beach
store no later than this month,
part of an $8 million pro-
gramme to upgrade and reno-
vate its New Providence and
Grand Bahama stores over the
next two to three years.

The company's older loca-
tions are expected to receive
the greater part of the capital
investment initiative, with work

already completed on expan-
sion efforts to Bahamas Super-
markets' Harbour Bay location.
Work on the Lyford Cay super-
market is also said to have been
substantially completed.

Meanwhile, Bryan Knowles,
Bahamas Supermarkets' chief
financial officer, previously
blamed competitive pricing ini-
tiatives and promotions for a
reduction in net earnings, which
declined by $412,000 or 31.85
per cent during the 2005 first
quarter.

Mr Knowles said the reduc-
tion in net earnings for the
quarter was due to a decrease in
gross profit, caused by reduced
gross margins relating to pro-
motions. Gross profit as a per-
centage of sales fell from 27.7
per cent to 25.8 per cent.

An increase of $0.1 million
or 2 per cent in operating and
administrative expenses also
added to the reduction in earn-
ings, and was due primarily to
increases in-payroll, utilities and
security expenses.

Looking forward for 2005, Mr
Knowles said the company
would work on providing qual-
ity service in its efforts to sup-
port continued growth in sales,
which increased by 3.3 per cent
to $27.9 million for the three
months to September 22.

Steps are also being taken to
introduce "a wide selection of

’ quality products-at competitive

prices and create a comfortable
shopping environment [as] our

basic strategy for sales growth’

and favourable income results".

ward to that; them honouring
their side of the agreement.”

In its latest missive, the ITPA
changed its line of attack on the
Bahamas, describing copyright
legislation as “poor” and fail-
ing to provide protection for
foreign sound recordings.

It added: “Little or nothing
is currently being done to pro-
vide effective enforcement
against the spread of physical
goods piracy. We are not aware
of any police actions that serve
as real deterrents against the
commercial sale or pirate goods.

“The lack of adequate legis-
lation and enforcement dis-
courages potential local and
international investments and
threatens the growth of a local
music industry.

“The Bahamas has the poten-
tial to be a successful market
for the legitimate recorded
music industry due to high lev-
els of tourism and per capita
income. The legitimate indus-
try is also very interested in the
exploitation of local and inter-
national repertoire in public
locations, including cruise ships,
and by broadcasters.”

The IIPA criticised the
Bahamas for not yet joining the
World Trade Organisation
(WTO) or the Geneva Phono-
grams Convention, nor ratified
or implemented the World

Intellectual Property Organisa- -

tion’s (WIPO) Performances
and Phonograms Treaty. All
these actions would improve
protection for foreign sound
recordings, the ITPA argued.
It added: “The immediate
impact of these inadequacies is
that international sound record-
ings do not receive the same
treatments as local sound
recordings, and the Internet
exploitation of music may be

‘unprotected. Moreover, the

Bahamas may lack border mea-
sures to prevent the trafficking

~ of counterfeit products.”

The DPA urged the Bahamas
to begin enforcement actions to
“discourage the sale of pirate
products” and enhance legisla-
tion by ratifying “at a mini-



mum” the WIPO Treaty, the
WIPO Copyright Treaty and
the Paris Act (1871) of the
Berne Convention, amending
its domestic laws and meeting
the requirements of Trade-
Related Intellectual Property
Rights (TRIPS).

Mrs Maynard-Gibson,
though, told The Tribune that
the IIPA comments on the
Bahamas were all “subjective”
and not backed up by hard or
empirical evidence. When the
Copyright Act 2004 was passed
last year, the Government had
indicated it would convene a
special committee to deal with
other copyright-related issues,
including potential legal amend-
ments.

And she pointed out that the
Bahamas was in good compa-
ny on the I[PA’s ‘special men-
tion’ list, which also included
Spain, Canada and Hong Kong.

But there is little doubt that
the ITPA believes the US gov-
ernment has special leverage it
can bring to bear to force the
Bahamas’ compliance, noting
that this nation participates in
the Caribbean Basin Initiative
(CBI) and is eligible to receive
benefits under the Caribbean
Basin Trade Partnership Act.

One CBI membership criteria
requires the Bahamas to have
adequate laws to protect. and
enforce intellectual property
and copyright rights, with the
IIPA hinting it could press

Washington to withdraw some —

of these benefits.

The IEPA document said $88
million worth of Bahamian-
made. goods were exported to
the US in 2003 under the CBI,
accounting for 16.4 per cent of
total Bahamian exports to the
US..

And during the. first 11
months of 2004, a further $82.5
million worth of Bahamian
goods or 14.3 per cent of total
Bahamian exports to the US
between January-November
2004 entered under the CBI, an
increase of 3.6 per cent on the

amount sent in the same period .

the year-before.

Interested persons should submit written offers to be received no later than February 28, 2005 to:

Commercial Credit Collection Unit

Paradise Island, the Atlantis,
The Palm resort in Dubai and
the Morocco hotel/casino joint
venture.

“Valuation is not cheap at

- these levels,” Mr Greer said in

relation to the share price.
Still, Bear Stearns’ positive
projections indicate that
Bahamian institutional and
retail investors who bought into
the Kerzner International
Bahamian Depository Receipt
(BDR) offering when the New

York share price was at $47.1,

are still likely to see capital
appreciation gains above the
39.7 per cent return they have

already enjoyed.

In his analysis of Kerzner
International’s fourth quarter
results, Mr Greer wrote: “Fun-
damentals for Kerzner Interna-
tional remain strong and we
forsee solid performance on
Paradise Island for 2005 and
beyond, driven by leverage to
accelerating leisure demand,
recent capital expenditure ini-
tiatives and increased low-cost
air carrier service.”

Describing the company’ s
EPS news as “clean”, beating
Bear Stearns and the Wall
Street consensus estimate for
the fourth quarter by $0.06,

NOTICE

TO: (1) All adjoining owners and or occupiers

(2) All adverse claimants

The Petition of Jordan Ritchie is respect of the following parcel of land:

ALL THAT piece parcel or lot of land totalling (44.172) Acres being part
of Crown Grant No. D-135 to Susannah Hewitt situate North of Junkey
Landing Road in the vicinity of the Big Gate in the Settlement of Deadman’s
Cay, Long Island one of the Islands of the Commonwealth of The Bahamas.

_ Copies of the filed Plan may be inspected during normal office hours at:-

: Street North, Nassau, Bahamas

(b) The Office of the Island Administrator at Clarence Town,
Long Island, The Bahamas; and .



coming in at $0.06, Mr Greer
said Atlantis had shrugged off
the effects of the third quarter
hurricanes and a slow fourth
quarter start with a “strong per-
formance”.

Paradise Island’s fourth quar-
ter operating income had
increased by 17 per cent to
$27.2 million, some $4.5 million
ahead of Bear Stearns’ own esti-

“mates.

“Outperformance was led by
3 per cent average daily room
rate and revenue per available
room (RevPAR) gains, and a
15 per cent slot win gain,” Mr
Greer said.

Apart from the increase in
low cost air service to the
Bahamas and enhanced leisure
traveller demand, also “under-
pinning strong business trends”
were margin improvements,
involving food and beverage
pricing gains and hotel efficien-
cy improvements.

Paradise Island and Kerzner
International beat almost all
Bear Stearns estimates for the
2004 fourth quarter. Together,
Atlantis and the One & Only
Ocean Club produced net rev-
enues of $117.4 million for the
period which, while flat com-
pared to 2003’s $116.9 million,
was $3.9 million or 3.4 per cent
of the investment bank’s fore-
cast.

On operating income, Par-
adise Island was some 19.8 per ©
cent ahead of Bear Stearns’
$22.7 million prediction.

Assessing Kerzner Interna-
tional’s stock price, Mr Greer

‘said the company’s shares cur-

rently traded at 15.7x and 14.7x
the 2005 and 2006 estimates for
its performance respectively. .

“While we realise that
investors are looking ahead to
2007 and beyond to assess
Kerzner’s fair value, we feel that
valuations are not cheap at
these levels,” the analyst wrote.

“That said, on a 2007 basis,
Kerzner International shares
trade at an 11.2x multiple -
more in line with historical val-

; uation levels - reaffirming our
Nassau, Bahamas or

belief that expected returns
from the Phase ITI development
have been priced in.”

While 2005 EPS estimates
had been increased “given
expectations of continued
improvements on Paradise
. Island”, the Bear. Stearns. ana-

lyst said EPS forecasts for 2006

and 2007 were unchanged “after

offsetting adjustments to oper-
ating income and non-operat-
ing items”.

increase aoa

The Securities Commission |

of the Bahamas has approved

-a doubling in listing fees for the
419 companies listed on the
~ Bahamas International Securi-

~ ties Exchange’s (BISX) domes- |

* tic tier from $2,500 to $5,000.

©

The increase in the fee for

© Domestic Primary Equity List-
‘ings on BISX received heavy

te SS es

Oo t

wow

support from the 19 entities list-
ed on the exchange, with only

‘two unnamed -companies

objecting. The annual listing

. fees had remained set at $2,500
i since BISX first began live trad-

ing in domestic equities in May
2000.
In approving the increase,

! which was requested by BISX’s

Board of Directors, the Securi-

< ties Commission also took into

consideration the listing fees

* charged by other Caribbean-
: based stock exchanges, particu- _

larly Barbados, Jamaica and
Trinidad & Tobago.
The Securities Commission

: said its analysis indicated the

BISX fee increase was “reason-

© able” and would not affect the

Bahamas’ competitiveness in

the capital markets industry.
The Domestic Primary Equi-

ty Listings fee increase raises

» the annual revenue that BISX

generates from this charge to
$95,000 from $47,5000, and will
have relatively little impact in

- turning around the exchange’s
,- financial performance in and of

itself.
And capital markets sources,

. who requested anonymity, apart

from questioning why the fee
increase had been almost five
years in coming, also queried
why BISX had requested an
across-the board flat rate fee.
They suggested that instead,
the BISX Board should have

charged a separate listing” fee

‘ their market capitalisation’ nd!

number of ordinary shares list-
ed on the exchange. As a result,
companies with greater market
capitalisation would end-up pay-
ing more than those that were
smaller in value.

The Securities Commission
itself is understood to levy from
investment funds and compa-
nies launching initial public
offerings (IPOs) fees that mir-
ror supervisory costs.

Regulation Seven of the,

Securities Industry Regulations

2000 mandates that BISX has —

to apply to the Securities Com-
mission for permission to make
any amendments to its fees.

Lucky three qualify for
the annual Carifta games

@ By KELSIE JOHNSON

Junior Sports Reporter

THE third track and field
meet of the year saw three ath-
letes secure spots to compete

Sheldon King, Jamal Stra-
chan and Gabrielle Nixon are
the only three athletes, so far,
to qualify for the games, which
are set to take place in
Trinidad and Tobago, March

All qualifications came from
the field, in high jump and shot
putt.

Nixon, who qualified from
last week’s meet, can have left
no doubt in the Bahamas

in the annual Carifta games. 24th-28th.

Association of Athletic Asso-

THROM Oar ICOMKoa CONtR oNCNTIeTite:

@ By BRENT STUBBS
Senior Sports Reporter

IT WAS another great weekend for sprinter
Grafton ‘G.O.’ Ifill IIT.

On Saturday at the Sykes-Sabok: Challenge at
Penn State, Ifill dropped his own school record

of 21.58 seconds that he set two weeks ago at the ©

Penn State National Open to 21.24.

This time, he picked up his first collegiate
victory for the University of Pennsylvania to
help them to a sixth place finish in a field of 10
participating schools.

“It felt good,” said the sophomore transfer
student, who took a year off from college. “I was
really happy with the performance, really hap-
py with the time.

“T feel like I’m really on track now for sure
with the performance.”

Ifill, who just barely missed the NCAA pro-

‘visional qualifying mark of 21.23 by one one-
hundredth of a‘second, ran out of lane five,
which enabled him to get a really good start
. and he was never caught the rest of the way.

Johnie Drake, a senior at Central Michigan,
who has the leading time in the 60, ran ahead of
Ifill in lane six. He finished second in 21.30.

“T had a pretty good start and I picked him up
pretty quickly and made a dash for the tape,”
said Ifill of Drake. “It was a pretty good race.

“So to run 21.2 indoors and for it to be so ear-
ly in the season, it shows that I should be in
pretty good shape later on in the (outdoor) sea-

son. I’m in good shape right now, so I’m really
motivated and looking forward to outdoors.”

Ifill is now looking forward to competing in
the Big Ten Championships event, set for Feb-
ruary 26-27 in West Lafayette, Indiana.

This weekend was the northeast Conference
Indoor Championships at the Prince COTE S
S&L Complex in Landover.

In the women’s 400, Grand Haliaenian Crista
Strachan, a freshman at Long Island Universi-
ty, came in sixth in a time of 61.90. a winning
time was 56.24.

Faster

Strachan had ran a little faster in the prelim-
inaries when she clocked 61.03 to win her heat
and placed seventh overall in the standings
going into the final.

Her twin sister, Crystal, was scheduled to
compete in the 500, but she had to withdraw
because of a hamstring injury she suffered in .
their last meet a week ago.

Also this weekend, the Bahamian connec-
tion at Dickenson State University, sprinter
Derrick Atkins, quarter-miler Aaron Cleare
and high/long jumper Trevor Barry are all
expected to compete in the DAC-10 Indoor
Championships in Spearfish, South Dakota.

All three are defending champions in their
specialities, but. there’s some uncertainly if
Atkins will be ready to run after he sprained his
groin.in his last meet a week ago.



ciation’s minds that she is the
right woman for the job.

After a throw of 12.39

meters — a personal and sea-
son’s best — Nixon came back
to throw 12.08m, surpassing
the qualification mark of
11.78m.

The only thing Nixon will
need to do to ensure a spot on
the team is to finish in the top
two spots at the Carifta Trials.

She said: “It feels great
being the first. person to quali-
fy for the games, but I know
that I can’t relax, I must keep
throwing the distance, proving
myself.

Focus

“T have no doubt in my mind
that I can finish in the top two,
but my main focus is staying
healthy enough to compete.

“TI would love to throw fur-
ther but today it was cold and
the one or two of the events
took a little time to start. But
overall [am happy with my
performances.”

If Nixon is able to finish in

_ the top two at the trials, and be .

officially named to the team,
this will be her fourth games.

She added: “I am more
focused on the shot putt event
this year, I think I am going to
do very well in that. My goal in
that event is to brig home a
gold medal, nothing less. |

“I am not to sure if I will be
competing in the discus, but

- more than likely I will, so I

have big goals for that event
as well. I haven’t really been

concentrating on that event
as much as J have been
concentrating on the shot, with
a little work it will all come
back.”

Nixon will need to throw
35.40 meters to qualify for the
games in the discus. Two time
qualifiers King and Strachan
had to battle each other for
top spots in the open men’s
high jump event over the
weekend.

King nudged out Strachan
for the victory with a leap of 6

feet 10 inches (2.08m), a clear-

ance on his first attempt. Stra-
chan, who made several
attempts at the height was
knocked out at 6 feet 9 inches
(2.06).

The qualifying mark in this .

event is 2.04 meters.

King was medallist at last
year’s Carifta games, with Stra-
chan finishing just short of a
medal, in fourth place.

Despite there being a change °

in scheduling of the games, and

this being just the third meet of '

the year, coaches and athletes
are optimistic about obtaining
qualifying standards.

Weekend

. Just shy of qualifying over
the weekend were Michelle
Cumberbatch, Sasha Ferguson,
Sasha Joyce,-Gerard Brown,
Kellie Rolle, Taneil Poitier,
Tracy Morrison, Elvin Carey
and Lesley Dorceval.

- Ferguson, who barely missed
out on the games last year is
back to prove herself in the

open women’s discus throw
event. —

She said: “I wanted to qual-
ify today, but I was just shy of
it, the mark was 40.95m and I
threw 40.24m.

“Hopefully next week I will
be able to come out stronger
than this week and surpass the
mark.

Problem

“My only problem was I was
running of my blocks, I wasn’t
squaring up properly. I am
looking to get that down pat
so on Saturday I can come out
strong.”

For Cumberbatch, a gold
medallist at last year’s games,
moving up into the.big ranks
will call for a lot more push.
She is hoping to obtain the
qualifying mark in the open

‘women’s 400m and 400 hur-

dles.

During the meet, Cumber-
batch ran 58.44 seconds in the
400m for a second place finish
and 102:55.00 in the hurdles
for a second and first place fin-
ishing, respectively.

She was beaten in the 400m
by Joyce in a time of 58.23 sec-
onds -: both girls will need to
run a 54.30 second quarter to
qualify.

Cumberbatch said: “Realis-

tically I am more likely to

qualify in the hurdles than in
the 400m.

“Technically I ran a sound
race, even though I didn’t exe-
cute the way I wanted to it was
a pretty smooth race.”

MARK KNOWLES and his
Canadian partner Daniel Nestor
came within one match of winning
their first tournament of the new
year.

Last year’s top ranked duo
remain winless in three outings as
they fell short of defending their
men’s doubles title at the Open 13
Marseille in France yesterday.

The top seeded team reached the
final, only to lose in two straight
sets to the No.4 team of Martin
Damm and Radek Stepanek of the
Czech Republic, 7-6 (4), 7-6 (5):

“We came close, but it was a
tough loss,” said Knowles,
moments after the defeat. “It was a
pretty good match, but we just
came up short.”

Knowles was referring to the fact
that they had six chances at break
point, but Damm and Stepanek
never had one opportunity in the
match.

As a matter of fact, in the first
set, Knowles and Nestor had a set
point on their opponents’ serve,
but they couldn’t capitalise on it.

“Tt obviously comes down to sud-
den death tennis,” Knowles admit-
ted. “We had a few tie breakers,
but they obviously played the tie
breakers a little better than us.

“We could have used any bit of
luck in the tie breaker.”

Advantage

Just as in the second set, “when
Knowles and Nestor had five
opportunities to break, they were
unable to take advantage of their
opponent’s misfortunes.

“They came up with huge serves
and they played very well on the
break points,” Knowles reflected.
“So we had our chances. They just
played well on the big points.”

To top it off, Damm and
Stepanek served extremely well
throughout the match, but more
specifically in the tie breakers to
prevail.

“We can’t really fault ourselves.
We didn’t finish one break point,
but we created a few opportuni-
ties. We just didn’t take them. It
was just a tough loss,” Knowles
added.

After losing in the first round of
their first two tournaments for the
year, Knowles proclaimed that they
were just thrilled to be in their first
final.

“Anytime you get to the final
obviously you want to win,”
Knowles stressed:

“But based on how we got off to
a slow start down there in Aus-
tralia, this is obviously a step in the
right direction.

“We got back into the final and if
there’s one thing we did well this
week is we played well.” -

“But we would have loved to
have won it. We just have to get
ready for next week and say that
while this was a tough loss, it was a
great week for us getting into the.
final.”

But now that they are winless so
far, he said the goal right now is
try and get the monkey of their
back.

They hope to redeem themselves
when they travel to Rotterdam,
Holland where they will play in the.
ABN AMRO world Tennis Tour-
nament this week.

“It’s going to be a tough tourna-
ment,” said Knowles, who is still
ranked at No.1 individually with
Nestor at No.2.

“We just hope that we can get
our first victory.”

Passengers
assaulted and
thrown. of! | ow

By KARIN HERIG:
Tribune Staff Reporter

AN URGENT appeal to.

reform the country’s “unsafe”
public transport system went
out yesterday after three people
were assaulted on a jitney and
thrown off the vehicle while it
was moving at high speed.

The passengers were attacked
and brutally beaten before
being tossed off the bus on Fri-
day evening, it emerged last
night.

Speaking with The Tribune,
one of the victims, Stephanie
Sturrup, 34, of Westchester,
England, said the ordeal began
after she boarded a jitney trav-
elling to Pinewood/Kennedy
Sub-division on Friday evening.

Mrs Sturrup said there were
six people, including the bus dri-
ver, on board at the time and
that two- men attacked her and
two other passengers and threw
them off the bus.

All three victims received
serious injuries, with one pas-

senger still in hospital recover- °

ing last night.
“T was very scared. Where I

come from we don’t know.

about such experiences,” she
said. ©

A second victim, Sharad
Lightfoot, said he was afraid for
his life. “I thought I was going
to die,” he said.

Both victims and their fami-
lies yesterday called for an
immediate reform of the public
transportation system.

Mrs Sturrup, who has been

living in the country for eight
years and is married to a
Bahamian, said this was her first
and last time travelling on a jit-
ney.

“Never, ever again will I ride
on a bus in this country,” she
vowed.

Mr Lightfoot concurred and
said he also would not be using
the public transportation sys-
tem again.

President of the Public Tran-

sit Association (PTA) Rubin -

Rahming yesterday encouraged
all Bahamians who witnes®
crimes occurring on buses, “or
things like the bus driver drink-
ing alcohol at the wheel,” to
write down the licence plate
number and report it to police.

He said his organisation will
be launching a 24-hour hotline
for people to seek assistance
with problems concerning the
public transportation system lat-
er this week.

Mr Rahming said that with
the greater influx of investors
and tourists to the Bahamas,
the bus system had be brought
on par with international stan-
dards.

“We have to bring it to a
higher level. With this upcom-
ing increase of hotels on Par-
adise Island and Cable Beach
we are just creating a greater
venue to display the country’s
negative aspects,” he-said.

Meanwhile, details of Friday’s _

attack were outlined to The Tri-
bune.

Massive manhunt

By KARIN HERIG
Tribune Staff Reporter

POLICE launched a massive
manhunt over the weekend for
an escaped prisoner wanted for
questioning in connection with
several armed robberies and a
rape in New Providence.

Carlos Dexter Conover, 22,
of Winton Meadows, was being
held at the Grove Police Sta-
tion when he made his escape
on Saturday at 8.25am.

Supt Hulan Hanna told The
Tribune that Conover was in his

cell when he asked to use the
bathroom.

An officer who responded to
his request said he was over-
powered by the prisoner just as
he was opening the cell door,
said Mr Hanna.

After his escape, Conover
fled into the Yellow Elder com-
munity.

Police immediately conduct-
ed a big search of the area, but
were unable to recover
the escaped prisoner, said Mr

apprised of the Bahamas’ suc-
cesses in the war against illicit
drug trafficking and implemen-
tation of the urban renewal pro-
gramme.

Deputy Commissioner of
Police John Rolle and ASP
Stephen Dean, co-ordinator of
the Farm Road Urban Renewal

Project, were guest presenters at
the Institute’s conference on
‘Breaking the cycle: Violence, ille-
gal drugs and youth crimes in
urban and rural communities.’

The conference was sponsored
by Southern University Criminal
Justice Graduate Programme, the
Nelson Mandela School of Public
Policy, both of Baton Rouge,
Louisiana, and the Institute for
Social Justice.

Convened on February 2, it
was attended by‘criminal justice
professionals, law enforcement
officials, social and public health



workers, community leaders and
university students.

Based in Decatur, Georgia, the
Institute is a non-profit organisa-
tion founded to provide techni-
cal assistance and expertise to
criminal justice, law enforcement
and community-based agencies
through research, training, con-
ferences and seminars.

Deputy Commissioner Rolle
told the conference that the
Bahamas’ response to the threat
of drug trafficking has been “swift
and decisive.”

As the leading law enforce-
ment agency in the Bahamas, the
Royal Bahamas Police Force was
given the “awesome task” of
identifying drug traffickers and
dismantling their operation, he
explained.

“This task, although daunting,
was willingly accepted by the fine
men and women of the Police
Force who, with a zero tolerance
approach to illicit drug trafficking,
rose to the challenge,” said Mr

‘Rolle.

Partners

He confirmed that last year

Bahamian police in conjunction
with their law enforcement part-
ners seized 1,632 pounds of
cocaine, 4,097 pounds of mari-
juana, 1,552 marijuana_plants;
arrested 1,612 persons, and seized
$453,722.75.

In March, 1982, the success of
the interdiction efforts was fur-
ther enhanced when the Bahamas
government joined forces with
the governments of the oui
States and Britain.

They formed a unique, but
highly successful tripartite agree-
ment code name Operation
Bahamas, America and Turks
and Caicos Island (OPBAT), Mr
Rolle explained.

“This innovative OPBAT
arrangement, coupled with the
enactment of new laws and the
aggressiveness of law enforce-
ment officials in the Bahamas,”
said Mr Rolle, “has to date result-
ed in the arrest and prosecution

Drug traffickers’ go-fast boats,
planes, yachts, freighters, vehi-
cles, houses, businesses and mil-
lions of dollars in cash have been

seized, Mr Rolle told the confer-

ence.

“We in the Royal Bahamas

way in our fight against drug traf-
fickers,” said Mr Rolle, “and have
come to realise that we are fight-
ing a vicious, formidable enemy.

“The battle for our citizens, our
streets, playgrounds, schools and
communities from the ‘angel of
death’ have not been easy. But, I
have come to tell you that the
tide is now turning on our side.

Asst Supt Dean told of the flag-
ship Farm Road Urban Renewal

Project and its “unprecedented
success” in eleven other commu-
ities in the Bahamas.

The Urban Renewal Commu-
nity Policing Project, said Mr
Dean, is.a direct response to chal-
lenges facing a number of inner-
city communities — crime, poor
housing conditions, joblessness,
illiteracy, homelessness,
HIV/AIDS and other social ills.

“Tt is one of the most ambitious
crime reduction experiments in
the Force’s recent. history,” Mr
Dean told the conference.

“It is a comprehensive
approach to eradicating crime and
social decay.

« “It emphasises both innovation

jand the integration of the efforts

‘and resources of a wide range of
agencies and the community at
large.”

Within six weeks of its incep-
tion, the Farm Road Project, led
by a group of specially selected
police officers, visited every
household and business in the
community collecting informa-

They were joined by represen-
tatives from the Department of
Social Services, the Ministry of
Housing, the Ministry of Health,
and the Ministry of Works.

The team moved derelict vehi-
cles, demolished abandoned
buildings, dismantled street drug
peddling groups, and arrested a
number of criminals, Mr Dean
reported.

In May, 2003, the Royal
Bahamas Police Force team was
awarded the Association of
Caribbean Commissioners of
Police Motorola Community
Policing Award in Bermuda
because of the success of the
Farm Road project.

Last year, the Bahamas Police
won the prestigious International
Association of Chiefs of Police
and ITT Industries. Community
Policing Award in Los Angeles.

“This community-based part-
nership and problem-solving
approach developed among the
government, police and commu-
nity has reduced historical
inequalities and improved the
quality of life in a number of dis-
advantaged urban communities,”
said Mr Dean.

“More importantly, this initia-
tive has developed into one of
the halimarks of the national

offensive against crime and vio-
“lence.”

Pastor Cedric Moss calls for more

humane process of repatriation

m@ By RUPERT
MISSICK Jr
Senior Staff Reporter

GOVERNMENT should
make the process of repa-
triation more humane by
providing illegal immi-
grants with the opportunity
to put their lives in order
before they are sent out of
the country, Pastor Cedric
Moss said yesterday.

Pastor Moss, along with
lawyers Fayne Thompson,
Eliezer Regnier and Paul
Moss, said the disruption
recent round-ups of Hait-
ian immigrants has caused
is inhumane.

To truly alleviate the
problem of illegal immigra-
tion, Pastor Moss said that
government must pass
stiff penalties for any per-
son who hires an illegal
alien.

Incentive

If this rule is strictly
enforced, it will eliminate
the incentive to come to
the county illegally and dis-
courage those hiring illegal
immigrants.

“In terms of natural jus-
tice, mercy and grace the
least our government can
do after so many years of
refusing to deal with the
illegal immigration prob-
lem is give notice to those
who must go.

“The minimum we can do

The Bahamas, he said, is
already a country of two
cultures. “There is nothing
we can do about that. What
we can do is make one peo-

ple from these two cul- .

“The minimum we can do is

The pastor said that
Bahamians ought not do
with the Haitians in their
country what the Germans
did with the Jews in their
country, “use them as a
scapegoats.”
Lawyer Paul Moss said
that in a democracy a gov-
ernment should not seek to
uproot people without
allowing them some chance
to get their life in order.

“We want to make it
clear that we are not con-
doning violence in any form
and it is our hope that the
Nassau Village incidents
are not simulated else-
where in the country.

“But the kind of rhetoric
being exposed recently by

Pastor Cedric Moss

recent round-up of
Haitians, is in our view a
recipe for violence, ” said
Mr Moss.

Explode

Trade and Industry Min-
ister Leslie Miller in the
House of Assembly last
week said the Bahamas is
facing a “catastrophe” and
is sitting on a “timebomb”

which will explode unless '

the country deals realisti-
cally with the issue of ille-
gal immigration.

He claimed that afford-
able rental units are being
removed further from the
grasp of Bahamians
because of the high num-
ber of illegal immigrants in
the country.

Last month Bishop Neil
Ellis, pastor of Mount
‘Tabor Full Gospel Baptist
hurch, gave a sermon urg-
ing Prime Minister Perry
Christie to show “guts” in
dealing decisively with the
apparent lawlessness of
“foreign elements” in the
Bahamas.

Bishop Ellis was respond-

ing to last month’s Nassau
Village riot in which a
police car was burnt and
three members of the pub-
lic were shot and wounded.
Many believe that anti-

Haitian comments were the
“spark which ignited the sit-
‘uation.

Mr Moss said the coun-
try is facing a problem and
government must naturalise
Bahamians born to Haitian
parents “without further
delay”.

“They must also give sta-
tus to those who can estab-
lish ties to the county. They
must then repatriate-all
others who do not fall with-
in those categories,” he
said.

In addition, Mr Thomp-
son said it is imperative
that government seek to
find ways to,naturalise
those persons of Haitian
descent.who only know the
Bahamas as home and who
“are Bahamians but for the
fact that some minister has
yet to sign his citizenship
papers”.

He pointed out that,
based on some of the inter-
national agreements the
Bahamas has signed, no-
one can be stateless.

Mr Moss said the reality
is that children born in the
Bahamas to Haitian parents
are Bahamians.

“Tf some conclude that
they are causing the vio-
lence or packing local
schools we cannot say place
the blame on Haitians.
These are Bahamians. It
makes no sense to refer to
them as Haitian-Bahamians
because many of us do not
refer to.others as Ameri-
can-Bahamian or Afro-
Bahamian. ;

“They are’ Bahdinidad
and if people do not-like it
they must change the law
to fix it.

“And since we live
according to the rule of law
we have an obligation to
uphold it,” said Mr Moss.

Animosity won't solve Haitian problem

IN THE Bahamas there is a growing
atmosphere of xenophobia — fear or hatred
of strangers or foreigners. This comes at a
time in our history when the world commu-
nity is promoting globalization, a coming
together of peoples, of ideas, of commerce
and the shrinking of borders.

It is true that the Bahamas has a very seri-
ous — and delicate — immigration problem;
a neglected problem built up over many
years.

However, inflammatory, emotive words
will only make the situation worse. The recent
riot in Nassau. Village was sparked, it is
alleged, by an ill-considered remark by a
Bahamian police officer. A young Haitian

girl took offence at the words she claimed -

belittled her father and said so'in no uncertain
terms.

The verbal abuse got out of hand, involving
the small community and ending in an
exchange of gunfire, the burning of a police
car, the shooting and wounding of three
members of the public, and the injuring of
two police officers.

Words sparked the riot and intemperate
words, especially from the pulpit and the
halls of parliament will only turn up the heat
and make an: already dangerous situation,
worse.

It is true; in the words of Trade and Indus-
try Minister Leslie Miller that we are facing a
“catastrophe” and “sitting on a time bomb”,
but his fiery words only put a match to that
bomb.

Many of our readers will recall British
politician Enoch Powell, who at the time of
his death in 1998, was described as the “best
prime minister Britain never had.”

His brilliant political career crashed in 1968°

when, in his “Rivers of Blood” speech in the
House of Commons he warned Britain of
the threat to national unity from the influx of
immigrants from her former colonies. He
predicted an increase in crime, poverty and
the fragmentation of British society.

He was branded as a racist at the time and
removed from Edward Heath’s shadow cab-
inet. His words put an end to his goal of
becoming prime minister.

Of course, many Bahamians who became
former colonists of the Mother Country on
Independence in 1973 and who would have
been included in Powell’s characterisation,
thought he had committed blasphemy. But
Britain was faced with what the Bahamas is

grappling with today — only on a much larg-
er and more complicated scale.

Could Mr Miller qualify for the “racist”
label after his House of Assembly outburst?

“This is my Bahamas,” he told the House,
“this is all I have.” It is true that this is our
Bahamas and this is all we have. But we must
never forget that somewhere in our family
tree an immigrant put down roots and called
these islands “home”. He was assimilated
into society.

For example in 1834 the tailor Stephen
Dillet was not only one of the first three
blacks to sit in the House of Assembly, he was
the first Haitian. And not only was he one of
the first blacks in the Bahamas’ history to sit
on the grand jury, again he was the first Hait-

- ian. Today’s Dillets are his descendants,

whether they spell their name Dillet or Dil-
lette. No one questioned his right to partici-
pate in society then and today his descen-
dants would probably join Mr Miller in claim-
ing: “This is my Bahamas, this is all I have...”

Many Haitians, and foreigners of every
ethnic background, make up the Bahamian
society. However, as the political situation
worsens in Haiti — it was a Haitian revolu-
tion that brought Stephen Dillet to our shores
— Haitians started to arrive in larger num-

bers.

The late Sir Roland Symonette, the
Bahamas’ first premier, sensed future trouble

_ and invited the politicians of the day to direct

their minds to the growing problem. Obvi-
ously, they did not have the foresight to share
his concern, because after his initial attempt
at talks, no more was heard of the potential
problem.

Over the years the Haitians have swamped
our shores. Bahamians see them as a threat to
their future security. Haitians, on the other
hand, unfairly treated, abused and frightened
by the growing animosity don’t know where
to turn.

The fact that the Haitians are here— as
someone commented yesterday — is because
there are jobs to be filled, and these jobs are
available because, according to Bahamians
who don’t want them, these are “Haitian
jobs”.

The Haitians were needed, and so they
came. There was no government regulation
and so too many came. Today the situation is
out of hand.

» e@ We shall continue this discussion tomor-
row.

Ministry and
the plight of
the disabled

I READ a story with interest which appeared in the
December 4, 2004 edition of The Bahama Journal. The cap-
tion read “Disabled Persons Hopeful”. The story espoused
the struggle for disabled persons to be recognised by society,
and to be given equal opportunities in mainstream society in |
The Bahamas. I encourage your readers to read thé story.
While I (reluctantly) cannot fully subscribe to the con-
tention that disabled persons should be treated as equal to
able-bodied persons in society, Iam a proponent of making
the necessary provisions in society ‘which would have the
effect of causing life to be more convenient for our incon-

I only have some idea of what the disabled in The
Bahamas is lobbying the government to do. And so, in my
humble opinion, the story lacked specificity. My guess is
that they (the disabled) have intimate knowledge of what '
(they believe) needs to be done, and have presented those |
proposals to the government. I was especially encouraged (by
the story) that the Minister of Social Services, the Hon
Melanie Griffin, was working along with these persons in
pursuit of (the elusive) equality.

This one Bahamian feels satisfied that the Ministry is tak-
ing into account the plight of these disadvantaged mem-
bers of this society and that (from only a public percep-
tion) the Hon Melanie Griffin empathises with their position

S EVERAL stories in
the last few weeks
demonstrate the basic truth
of what many have been
saying for a long time: the
levels of illegal immigration
into this country and the
consequent uncontrolled
formation of Haitian com-
munities throughout our
islands are a recipe for
nothing but trouble.

. But before we resort to a
pogrom against the Haitians
in our midst we must first
ask ourselves who is really
to blame for the way things
have turned out. Why, ina
high- income and expensive
economy like ours, do
apparently endless oppor-
tunities exist for low-
skilled, low-income labour?

Motor-cyclist
is year’s 10th
traffic fatality

@ By KARIN HERIG
_ Tribune Staff Reperter

“THE country’ s tenth traffic fatality of the
_ | year was recorded over the weekend when a
| motor-cyclist collided with two vehicles in

| the East Street area.

Police reported that 27-year-old Romeo

times cars don’t take notice of them and
either abruptly stop in front of a. biker, or

said.

| Storr, of Brougham Street, was travelling

Helmet

“Mr Storr was wearing a helmet, but he
was seriously injured and was brought to
Princess Margaret Hospital where he died
on Saturday at 6.05pm,” Mr Hanna said.

This incident once again caused police to
caution motor-cyclists to “drive defensive-

ly.”

Mr Hanna said that even when a motor-

| wears a helmet, he can still become the victim

of an accident.

“We have so many intersecting roads and
many are so closely intertwined, if you’re
travelling at a high speed it is difficult to

avoid someone turning in from a corner.

Bikes get out of control at high speeds and
are easily airborne,” he said.

Mr Hanna added, however, that the recent-

ly opened dialogue between the Royal
Bahamas Police Force and the Bahamas
Motorcycle Association is expected to

bring improvement to the road traffic situa-

tion.

“Under the leadership of Jermaine Davis,
we believe that the bikers are heading in the
right direction.

Medical experts say although a person is infected by TB
germs, it does not mean that he/she has the TB disease.

Germs |

According to a TB resource website, after TB germs .
enter the body, in most cases, body defences control the
germs by building a wall around them, the way a scab

forms over a cut.

The germs can stay alive inside these walls for years in

an "inactive" state.

While TB germs are inactive, they can't harm the per-
son and they can't spread to other people: The person is
infected but not sick and peepaon won't even know that

he/she is infected.

To protect an infected person from getting TB disease,
the doctor may give the person medicine to take for a
period of time. Medicine is given depending on the infect-
ed person's health, age and closeness of contact to some-

one with active TB disease.

More than 150 students and a number of teachers and
staff who came into contact with an infected ninth-grade
girl were tested on Wednesday. In addition 28 straw ven-
dors who worked in close proximity with the relative of

the girl were also tested.

and low-skilled employment

No matter what he
offending employers say,
the real motivation for their
hiring cheaper and more
pliant and hungry migrants
rather than hiring and train-
ing professional Bahamians
is an ingrained resistance to
the natural movement away

The OAS needs modern

and creative leader

l™§ By US AMBASSADOR
JOHN D ROOD

REGIONAL governments
will soon have the opportunity
to choose a dynamic and for-
ward-leaning new leader for a
key hemispheric forum. That
is why the United States is urg-
ing our neighbours and allies
to join us in endorsing former
Salvadoran President Francisco
Flores for the important and
prestigious post of Secretary
General of the Organisation of
American States.

We are proud to stand
behind President Flores. A
modern Central American, he
represents a new generation of

hemispheric leaders who view
the challenges of our 21st cen-
tury, globalised world not as
threats to be feared, but as
opportunities to be embraced.

Demands

As a former president, Fran-
cisco Flores knows the
demands of leadership and the
pressures of decision-making
that are the everyday responsi-
bilities of a chief executive. In
E] Salvador, a country not long
ago racked by civil war and
economic dislocation, he con-
fronted great challenges, made
the tough decisions, and suc-
ceeded — playing a central role

century, globalised world not as

threats to be feared, but as
opportunities to be embraced.”



in the birth of a new El Sal-
vador socially at peace, eco-
nomically vibrant and outward-
looking, and politically stable.

On January 27, President
Flores addressed the OAS Per-
manent Council to outline his
program to lead the OAS as a
representative of Central
America, placing specific
emphasis on the need for that
regional body to pay more
attention to the needs and aspi-
rations of smaller states.

He also focused on three
main themes: defeating pover-
ty with economic growth,
improving the OAS role in
preparing for and responding
to natural disasters, and. pro-
viding a vision for the organi-
sation over the next five years.

President Flores suggested
that deeper regional integra-
tion will enhance the competi-
tiveness of small states seeking
to take full advantage of the
benefits of the 21st century
global economy. He offered
as an example the Central
America Free Trade Agree-
ment as to what could be
achieved through concerted
effort.

He also highlighted the need
for regional integration in the

tilateral financial organisations,
private sector banks, and pri-
vate capital flows in fostering
regional development, growth,
and job creation.

Vision
President Flores’ vision for
the hemisphere is the vision of

the OAS: freedom, democra-
cy, prosperity, and stability for

a region that has known too.

much turmoil. He is a princi-
pled pragmatist with a proven
record, a committed democrat
and a multilateralist, who
embodies the values that are
at the core of the work of the
OAS.

President Flores was chief
executive during a difficult time
in El Salvador’s history. The
United States believes this
experience will allow him to
stand on equal footing with the
region’s leaders as the OAS
confronts great challenges, such
as post-conflict reconstruction
and the painful process of rec-
onciliation. Haiti is one case
that comes to mind.

The United States believes
the OAS needs fresh, creative,
and resolute leadership, based
on a deep appreciation for the
benefits of regional action and

hemispheric unity. We have no

doubt that Francisco Flores can
guide the organisation in its
quest to strengthen the institu-
tions that underpin regional
prosperity so that: all citizens
of the Americas enjoy the ben-
efits of freedom.

On jitney

FROM page one |

At 6.15pm two male pas-
sengers on the jitney des-
tined for the Kennedy Sub-
division suddenly attacked
a third man, Mrs Sturrup
reported.

In the area of Baillou Hill
Road she then watched as
the two attackers threw the
man, known to her only as
‘Matthew’, out of the mov-
ing bus.

Mrs Sturrup said she
assumed they had removed

“him from the bus because

he had not paid the fare.

Hill Road the bus stopped
and passenger Sharad
Lightfoot boarded.

Mrs Sturrup said she then
witnessed the two men,
who had attacked Matthew
just a few minutes before,
launch an assault on Mr
Lightfoot.

“They punched him in
the face and tackled him,”
she said.

Recalling the incident,
Mr Lightfoot, 25, of
Mahogany Street, said the
men took turns in punch-
ing him in the face.

“They were trying to get
to my wallet and I wouldn’t
let them,” he said.

Mr Lightfoot said he was
finally able to make it to
the door of the bus and
prise it open.

“T kept calling to the bus

‘driver to help and stop the
‘bus, but instead he just

sped up, he was doin
about 50mph.

“They kept pushing me
and then they threw me off
the bus,” he said.

Mrs Sturrup said she saw
Mr Lightfoot hold on to the
outside of the bus door
before he was thrown off in
the Pinewood area.

“T was sliding all over the
road and then I hit my head
on a wall and lost con-
sciousness,” Mr Lightfoot
said.

He said the next thing he
remembered was waking up
in a pool of his ‘own blood

without any memory of the.

for about 10-15 minutes
and then I managed to
struggle home. At home it
finally all came flooding
back what had happened to
me,” he said.

Mr Lightfoot said he
received severe head
injuries.

Mrs Sturrup said after Mr
Lightfoot had been force-
fully removed from the jit-
ney, the two men assaulted
her, demanding that she
hand over her handbag.

“They grabbed my bag
and I refused to give it to
them,” she recalled.

She said she tried to
appeal to the bus driver for
help, without success.

Mrs Sturrup said she was
thrown out of the bus
somewhere close to the
Kennedy Sub-division.

“Afterwards I went to
South Beach police station
to report the incident and
then I went to the hospi-

‘tal,” she said.

Mrs Sturrup received
fractures to her face and
lacerations “all about the
body.” .

The passenger known as
‘Matthew’ is still in hospital
recovering from his
injuries. ;

According to Mrs Stur-
rup and Mr Lightfoot,
police are holding the bus
driver for questioning.

They wished to commend
the officers of the South
Beach police station for

their “quick and efficient
“work.” ~ 3

‘Strength’ of
Atlantis sees
Kerzner EPS
estimate rise

By NEIL HARTNELL
Tribune Business Editor

&
Expectations of “continued
strength” at Paradise Island’s
Atlantis resort have caused a

- Wall Street investment bank to -

raise its first quarter earnings
per share (EPS) estimate for
Kerzner International to $1.17
from $1.15, with its 2005 full-

year EPS forecast also raised -

by $0.02 to $2.66.

Joseph Greer, the Bear
Stearns analyst who covers
Kerzner International, said in
a research note following the

announcement of the.compa-.

ny’s 2004 fourth quarter and full
year figures, that while the Par-
adise Island outlook remained
rosy, it was still retaining its

IndiGO’s Grand
Bahama launch

set for March 1

Urges PUC to prevent more
BTC market ‘manipulation’

By.NEIL HARTNELL
Tribune Business Editor

IndiGO Networks will for-
mally launch fixed-line voice
services on Grand Bahama on
March 1, its president told The
Tribune. He added that while
the company did not oppose the
Bahamas Telecommunications
Company’s (BTC) lower long-
distance and inter-island tariffs,
it was urging regulators to
ensure that the incumbent car-
rier was not allowed to again
“manipulate” the market.

Paul Hutton-Ashkenny said
the company had experienced
“a good steady increase across
the board” in terms of New
Providence business since it first
lauftehed its pre-paid and com-
mi customers services on
D ber 1.

He added that IndiGo Net-
works would have launched its
fixed-line services in Grand
Bahama “before now”, but had
been delayed by waiting for
interconnection circuits to be
provided by BTC.

Those had been installed and
were being tested over the
remainder of February, before
the formal March 1 launch,
which will initially involve pre-
paid cards and services for com-
mercial customers.

Mr Hutton-Ashkenny said
the build out of IndiGo’s wire-
less network was “on track”,

and the company would launch —

services in Abaco “as soon as
BTC gives us the interconnec-
tion circuits. It’s as simple as
that. They were ordered in
December, and as soon as we
get them we'll launch in Aba-
co”

The Abaco wireless network
will cover Marsh Harbour,
Dundas Town, Murphy Town,
Treasure Cay and Man O’-War
Cay.

Mr Hutton-Ashkenny said
IndiGo Networks hoped to pro-
vide a full residential service,
which would involve supplying
the company’s own trunk

phone, to New Providence and .

Grand Bahama customers by
this summer. Currently, they
were having to use a BTC
phone rather than an IndiGo
phone.

Mr Hutton-Ashkenny said
the company had made a sub-
mission to the Public Utilities
Commission (PUC), . the

‘ telecommunications sector, on’

BTC’s application for the lower
long distance rates it'unveiled in
early October, supposedly as
part of a four-month promo-
tion, to be made permanent for
as long as it takes to decide on
BTC’s tariff rebalancing pro-
posal.

the company did not oppose

Allyson Maynard-Gibson,

the passage of the Copyright

Bahamas to be named to any

addressed that concern and
that, I am sure, is why the
Bahamas is not on any list.”

But the IIPA gives the
Bahamas no credit for passing
the Copyright Act 2004 in its
2005 submission to the US
“trade representative, claiming
this nation “still has not met
its commitments” under the
2000 agreement to bring the
compulsory licensing regime
into line with “international

The agreement was sealed
in an exchange of letters on
October 26 and November 9,
2000, and Mrs Maynard-Gib-
son hit back by saying the
IPA submission was factually
incorrect when The Tribune
brought it to her attention.

Under the terms of that
agreement, the MPAA and its
members were supposed to
enter “good faith negotia-
tions” with Cable Bahamas for
a commercial agreement that
would allow the latter to pro-
vide English-speaking pro-
gramming but pay royalty and
licence fees to the copyright
‘holders.

BTC’s lower rates, as this would benefit Bahamian residential and
business customers, reducing operating costs for the latter.

However, he explained that IndiGo did “stand up and say that
BTC should not have been allowed to manipulate the market in the
way it did. BTC got away with doing what it did”.

Many observers viewed BTC’s. four-month promotion as an
attempt to drive IndiGo out of the market through predatory pric-
ing, something the PUC and telecommunications sector regula-
tors are supposed to prevent. BTC was supposed to have obtained
the PUC’s permission for the lower promotional rates, but never
sought this before introducing them, and was now crying that it
would be placed in commercial difficulties without those rates
becoming permanent.

Mr Hutton-Ashkenny said BTC had now got the PUC to approve
the lower long distance and inter-island tariffs it had been seeking

all along, as it was now claiming that to raise them again following
the four-month promotion’s end would be tantamount to “eco-
nomic suicide”.

Felicity Johnson, BTC's vice-president of legal and regulatory
affairs, wrote in a letter to the PUC on January 20:that by targeting
20 per cent of BTC’s business customers IndiGo could threaten 80
per cent of its long-distance revenues.

‘But Mr Hutton-Ashkenny said: “For the. duration of the time.
when the interim rates are in play, there should be specific instruc-
tions that BTC can offer no more special promotions, discounts that |
would allow them to lower tariffs.

“They’ve got away with it once, they should not be allowed to get
away with it again.’

Winn-Dixie woes create

no ‘issues’ for B

By NEIL HARTNELL
Tribune Business Editor

ahamas Super-
markets’ parent,
Winn-Dixie, has
told The Tribune
that its financial

problems “do not create the |

same issues” for its Bahamian
subsidiary, as concerns mounted
last week over the US grocery
chain’s future following a $399.7
million quarterly loss.

A Winn-Dixie spokeswoman
said Bahamas Supermarkets,
which operates its 12 stores
under the City Markets and
Winn-Dixie brands, had _busi-
ness operations that were sepa-
rate from its US parent. It also
had different lines of credit and
financing from Bahamas-based
banks.

The spokeswoman said:
“Financial issues at Winn-Dixie
do not create the same issues
for stores in the Bahamas. We
have no plans to restructure our
operations in the Bahamas. In
fact, our operations there con-
tinue to be profitable and we
plan to go forward with plans
to improve our store facilities.”

She added that Bahamas
Supermarkets was set to release
its fiscal 2005 second quarter
financial results this week, fol-
lowing a Board of Directors
meeting.

The share price of its US-list-
ed parent, Winn-Dixie stores,
fell by 36 per cent on the New
York Stock Exchange (NYSE)
last Thursday, sparking market
speculation - hotly denied by
the company - that it might
have to file for Chapter 11
bankruptcy protection.

Analysts said the chain was
running out of time to win back
customers and market share,
having lost touch with con-
sumers and being squeezed by
competition from more power-

ful rivals, following years of |

under-investment i in its stores.
However, Winn-Dixie’s
shareholding in Bahamas
Supermarkets, which is around
75 per cent, with the remainder
held by Bahamian public share-
holders, is held through W-D

(Bahamas), a Bahamian com-
pany, thus providing a degree
of separation from the woes in
the US. -

Given its need for cash flow
and profit, Winn-Dixie is
unlikely to want to sell an enti-
ty that still generates a quarter-
ly profit, the latest one’ being
$0.9 million for the first quarter
2005.

It is understood that in the
worst-case scenario, that of a
Chapter 11 bankruptcy filing by
Winn-Dixie in the US, the only

impact on Bahamas Supermar- :

kets might be on its supply
chain.

It could possibly be forced to
seek new suppliers, particularly
for previous home brand prod-
uct, and might be unable to
obtain the same purchasing and
credit terms it enjoyed by being
part of a larger group. However,
its separate lines of credit and
financing, plus overall prof-
itability, mean this is an obstacle
that can be overcome.

And while Bahamas Super-
markets faces similar store-
related issues to its parent, it
told The Tribune earlier this
year that it planned to break
ground on a new Cable Beach
store no later than this month,
part of an $8 million pro-
gramme to upgrade and reno-
vate its New Providence and
Grand Bahama stores over the
next two to three years.

The company's older loca-
tions are expected to receive
the greater part of the capital
investment initiative, with work

already completed on expan-
sion efforts to Bahamas Super-
markets' Harbour Bay location.
Work on the Lyford Cay super-
market is also said to have been
substantially completed.

Meanwhile, Bryan Knowles,
Bahamas Supermarkets' chief
financial officer, previously
blamed competitive pricing ini-
tiatives and promotions for a
reduction in net earnings, which
declined by $412,000 or 31.85
per cent during the 2005 first
quarter.

Mr Knowles said the reduc-
tion in net earnings for the
quarter was due to a decrease in
gross profit, caused by reduced
gross margins relating to pro-
motions. Gross profit as a per-
centage of sales fell from 27.7
per cent to 25.8 per cent.

An increase of $0.1 million
or 2 per cent in operating and
administrative expenses also
added to the reduction in earn-
ings, and was due primarily to
increases in-payroll, utilities and
security expenses.

Looking forward for 2005, Mr
Knowles said the company
would work on providing qual-
ity service in its efforts to sup-
port continued growth in sales,
which increased by 3.3 per cent
to $27.9 million for the three
months to September 22.

Steps are also being taken to
introduce "a wide selection of

’ quality products-at competitive

prices and create a comfortable
shopping environment [as] our

basic strategy for sales growth’

and favourable income results".

ward to that; them honouring
their side of the agreement.”

In its latest missive, the ITPA
changed its line of attack on the
Bahamas, describing copyright
legislation as “poor” and fail-
ing to provide protection for
foreign sound recordings.

It added: “Little or nothing
is currently being done to pro-
vide effective enforcement
against the spread of physical
goods piracy. We are not aware
of any police actions that serve
as real deterrents against the
commercial sale or pirate goods.

“The lack of adequate legis-
lation and enforcement dis-
courages potential local and
international investments and
threatens the growth of a local
music industry.

“The Bahamas has the poten-
tial to be a successful market
for the legitimate recorded
music industry due to high lev-
els of tourism and per capita
income. The legitimate indus-
try is also very interested in the
exploitation of local and inter-
national repertoire in public
locations, including cruise ships,
and by broadcasters.”

The IIPA criticised the
Bahamas for not yet joining the
World Trade Organisation
(WTO) or the Geneva Phono-
grams Convention, nor ratified
or implemented the World

Intellectual Property Organisa- -

tion’s (WIPO) Performances
and Phonograms Treaty. All
these actions would improve
protection for foreign sound
recordings, the ITPA argued.
It added: “The immediate
impact of these inadequacies is
that international sound record-
ings do not receive the same
treatments as local sound
recordings, and the Internet
exploitation of music may be

‘unprotected. Moreover, the

Bahamas may lack border mea-
sures to prevent the trafficking

~ of counterfeit products.”

The DPA urged the Bahamas
to begin enforcement actions to
“discourage the sale of pirate
products” and enhance legisla-
tion by ratifying “at a mini-



mum” the WIPO Treaty, the
WIPO Copyright Treaty and
the Paris Act (1871) of the
Berne Convention, amending
its domestic laws and meeting
the requirements of Trade-
Related Intellectual Property
Rights (TRIPS).

Mrs Maynard-Gibson,
though, told The Tribune that
the IIPA comments on the
Bahamas were all “subjective”
and not backed up by hard or
empirical evidence. When the
Copyright Act 2004 was passed
last year, the Government had
indicated it would convene a
special committee to deal with
other copyright-related issues,
including potential legal amend-
ments.

And she pointed out that the
Bahamas was in good compa-
ny on the I[PA’s ‘special men-
tion’ list, which also included
Spain, Canada and Hong Kong.

But there is little doubt that
the ITPA believes the US gov-
ernment has special leverage it
can bring to bear to force the
Bahamas’ compliance, noting
that this nation participates in
the Caribbean Basin Initiative
(CBI) and is eligible to receive
benefits under the Caribbean
Basin Trade Partnership Act.

One CBI membership criteria
requires the Bahamas to have
adequate laws to protect. and
enforce intellectual property
and copyright rights, with the
IIPA hinting it could press

Washington to withdraw some —

of these benefits.

The IEPA document said $88
million worth of Bahamian-
made. goods were exported to
the US in 2003 under the CBI,
accounting for 16.4 per cent of
total Bahamian exports to the
US..

And during the. first 11
months of 2004, a further $82.5
million worth of Bahamian
goods or 14.3 per cent of total
Bahamian exports to the US
between January-November
2004 entered under the CBI, an
increase of 3.6 per cent on the

amount sent in the same period .

the year-before.

Interested persons should submit written offers to be received no later than February 28, 2005 to:

Commercial Credit Collection Unit

Paradise Island, the Atlantis,
The Palm resort in Dubai and
the Morocco hotel/casino joint
venture.

“Valuation is not cheap at

- these levels,” Mr Greer said in

relation to the share price.
Still, Bear Stearns’ positive
projections indicate that
Bahamian institutional and
retail investors who bought into
the Kerzner International
Bahamian Depository Receipt
(BDR) offering when the New

York share price was at $47.1,

are still likely to see capital
appreciation gains above the
39.7 per cent return they have

already enjoyed.

In his analysis of Kerzner
International’s fourth quarter
results, Mr Greer wrote: “Fun-
damentals for Kerzner Interna-
tional remain strong and we
forsee solid performance on
Paradise Island for 2005 and
beyond, driven by leverage to
accelerating leisure demand,
recent capital expenditure ini-
tiatives and increased low-cost
air carrier service.”

Describing the company’ s
EPS news as “clean”, beating
Bear Stearns and the Wall
Street consensus estimate for
the fourth quarter by $0.06,

NOTICE

TO: (1) All adjoining owners and or occupiers

(2) All adverse claimants

The Petition of Jordan Ritchie is respect of the following parcel of land:

ALL THAT piece parcel or lot of land totalling (44.172) Acres being part
of Crown Grant No. D-135 to Susannah Hewitt situate North of Junkey
Landing Road in the vicinity of the Big Gate in the Settlement of Deadman’s
Cay, Long Island one of the Islands of the Commonwealth of The Bahamas.

_ Copies of the filed Plan may be inspected during normal office hours at:-

(a) The Registry of the Supreme Court, Ansbacher House, East
: Street North, Nassau, Bahamas

(b) The Office of the Island Administrator at Clarence Town,
Long Island, The Bahamas; and .



coming in at $0.06, Mr Greer
said Atlantis had shrugged off
the effects of the third quarter
hurricanes and a slow fourth
quarter start with a “strong per-
formance”.

Paradise Island’s fourth quar-
ter operating income had
increased by 17 per cent to
$27.2 million, some $4.5 million
ahead of Bear Stearns’ own esti-

“mates.

“Outperformance was led by
3 per cent average daily room
rate and revenue per available
room (RevPAR) gains, and a
15 per cent slot win gain,” Mr
Greer said.

Apart from the increase in
low cost air service to the
Bahamas and enhanced leisure
traveller demand, also “under-
pinning strong business trends”
were margin improvements,
involving food and beverage
pricing gains and hotel efficien-
cy improvements.

Paradise Island and Kerzner
International beat almost all
Bear Stearns estimates for the
2004 fourth quarter. Together,
Atlantis and the One & Only
Ocean Club produced net rev-
enues of $117.4 million for the
period which, while flat com-
pared to 2003’s $116.9 million,
was $3.9 million or 3.4 per cent
of the investment bank’s fore-
cast.

On operating income, Par-
adise Island was some 19.8 per ©
cent ahead of Bear Stearns’
$22.7 million prediction.

Assessing Kerzner Interna-
tional’s stock price, Mr Greer

‘said the company’s shares cur-

rently traded at 15.7x and 14.7x
the 2005 and 2006 estimates for
its performance respectively. .

“While we realise that
investors are looking ahead to
2007 and beyond to assess
Kerzner’s fair value, we feel that
valuations are not cheap at
these levels,” the analyst wrote.

“That said, on a 2007 basis,
Kerzner International shares
trade at an 11.2x multiple -
more in line with historical val-

; uation levels - reaffirming our
Nassau, Bahamas or

belief that expected returns
from the Phase ITI development
have been priced in.”

While 2005 EPS estimates
had been increased “given
expectations of continued
improvements on Paradise
. Island”, the Bear. Stearns. ana-

lyst said EPS forecasts for 2006

and 2007 were unchanged “after

offsetting adjustments to oper-
ating income and non-operat-
ing items”.

fees

increase aoa

The Securities Commission |

of the Bahamas has approved

-a doubling in listing fees for the
419 companies listed on the
~ Bahamas International Securi-

~ ties Exchange’s (BISX) domes- |

* tic tier from $2,500 to $5,000.

©

The increase in the fee for

© Domestic Primary Equity List-
‘ings on BISX received heavy

te SS es

Oo t

wow

support from the 19 entities list-
ed on the exchange, with only

‘two unnamed -companies

objecting. The annual listing

. fees had remained set at $2,500
i since BISX first began live trad-

ing in domestic equities in May
2000.
In approving the increase,

! which was requested by BISX’s

Board of Directors, the Securi-

< ties Commission also took into

consideration the listing fees

* charged by other Caribbean-
: based stock exchanges, particu- _

larly Barbados, Jamaica and
Trinidad & Tobago.
The Securities Commission

: said its analysis indicated the

BISX fee increase was “reason-

© able” and would not affect the

Bahamas’ competitiveness in

the capital markets industry.
The Domestic Primary Equi-

ty Listings fee increase raises

» the annual revenue that BISX

generates from this charge to
$95,000 from $47,5000, and will
have relatively little impact in

- turning around the exchange’s
,- financial performance in and of

itself.
And capital markets sources,

. who requested anonymity, apart

from questioning why the fee
increase had been almost five
years in coming, also queried
why BISX had requested an
across-the board flat rate fee.
They suggested that instead,
the BISX Board should have

charged a separate listing” fee

‘ their market capitalisation’ nd!

number of ordinary shares list-
ed on the exchange. As a result,
companies with greater market
capitalisation would end-up pay-
ing more than those that were
smaller in value.

The Securities Commission
itself is understood to levy from
investment funds and compa-
nies launching initial public
offerings (IPOs) fees that mir-
ror supervisory costs.

Regulation Seven of the,

Securities Industry Regulations

2000 mandates that BISX has —

to apply to the Securities Com-
mission for permission to make
any amendments to its fees.

Lucky three qualify for
the annual Carifta games

@ By KELSIE JOHNSON

Junior Sports Reporter

THE third track and field
meet of the year saw three ath-
letes secure spots to compete

Sheldon King, Jamal Stra-
chan and Gabrielle Nixon are
the only three athletes, so far,
to qualify for the games, which
are set to take place in
Trinidad and Tobago, March

All qualifications came from
the field, in high jump and shot
putt.

Nixon, who qualified from
last week’s meet, can have left
no doubt in the Bahamas

in the annual Carifta games. 24th-28th.

Association of Athletic Asso-

THROM Oar ICOMKoa CONtR oNCNTIeTite:

@ By BRENT STUBBS
Senior Sports Reporter

IT WAS another great weekend for sprinter
Grafton ‘G.O.’ Ifill IIT.

On Saturday at the Sykes-Sabok: Challenge at
Penn State, Ifill dropped his own school record

of 21.58 seconds that he set two weeks ago at the ©

Penn State National Open to 21.24.

This time, he picked up his first collegiate
victory for the University of Pennsylvania to
help them to a sixth place finish in a field of 10
participating schools.

“It felt good,” said the sophomore transfer
student, who took a year off from college. “I was
really happy with the performance, really hap-
py with the time.

“T feel like I’m really on track now for sure
with the performance.”

Ifill, who just barely missed the NCAA pro-

‘visional qualifying mark of 21.23 by one one-
hundredth of a‘second, ran out of lane five,
which enabled him to get a really good start
. and he was never caught the rest of the way.

Johnie Drake, a senior at Central Michigan,
who has the leading time in the 60, ran ahead of
Ifill in lane six. He finished second in 21.30.

“T had a pretty good start and I picked him up
pretty quickly and made a dash for the tape,”
said Ifill of Drake. “It was a pretty good race.

“So to run 21.2 indoors and for it to be so ear-
ly in the season, it shows that I should be in
pretty good shape later on in the (outdoor) sea-

son. I’m in good shape right now, so I’m really
motivated and looking forward to outdoors.”

Ifill is now looking forward to competing in
the Big Ten Championships event, set for Feb-
ruary 26-27 in West Lafayette, Indiana.

This weekend was the northeast Conference
Indoor Championships at the Prince COTE S
S&L Complex in Landover.

In the women’s 400, Grand Haliaenian Crista
Strachan, a freshman at Long Island Universi-
ty, came in sixth in a time of 61.90. a winning
time was 56.24.

Faster

Strachan had ran a little faster in the prelim-
inaries when she clocked 61.03 to win her heat
and placed seventh overall in the standings
going into the final.

Her twin sister, Crystal, was scheduled to
compete in the 500, but she had to withdraw
because of a hamstring injury she suffered in .
their last meet a week ago.

Also this weekend, the Bahamian connec-
tion at Dickenson State University, sprinter
Derrick Atkins, quarter-miler Aaron Cleare
and high/long jumper Trevor Barry are all
expected to compete in the DAC-10 Indoor
Championships in Spearfish, South Dakota.

All three are defending champions in their
specialities, but. there’s some uncertainly if
Atkins will be ready to run after he sprained his
groin.in his last meet a week ago.



ciation’s minds that she is the
right woman for the job.

After a throw of 12.39

meters — a personal and sea-
son’s best — Nixon came back
to throw 12.08m, surpassing
the qualification mark of
11.78m.

The only thing Nixon will
need to do to ensure a spot on
the team is to finish in the top
two spots at the Carifta Trials.

She said: “It feels great
being the first. person to quali-
fy for the games, but I know
that I can’t relax, I must keep
throwing the distance, proving
myself.

Focus

“T have no doubt in my mind
that I can finish in the top two,
but my main focus is staying
healthy enough to compete.

“TI would love to throw fur-
ther but today it was cold and
the one or two of the events
took a little time to start. But
overall [am happy with my
performances.”

If Nixon is able to finish in

_ the top two at the trials, and be .

officially named to the team,
this will be her fourth games.

She added: “I am more
focused on the shot putt event
this year, I think I am going to
do very well in that. My goal in
that event is to brig home a
gold medal, nothing less. |

“I am not to sure if I will be
competing in the discus, but

- more than likely I will, so I

have big goals for that event
as well. I haven’t really been

concentrating on that event
as much as J have been
concentrating on the shot, with
a little work it will all come
back.”

Nixon will need to throw
35.40 meters to qualify for the
games in the discus. Two time
qualifiers King and Strachan
had to battle each other for
top spots in the open men’s
high jump event over the
weekend.

King nudged out Strachan
for the victory with a leap of 6

feet 10 inches (2.08m), a clear-

ance on his first attempt. Stra-
chan, who made several
attempts at the height was
knocked out at 6 feet 9 inches
(2.06).

The qualifying mark in this .

event is 2.04 meters.

King was medallist at last
year’s Carifta games, with Stra-
chan finishing just short of a
medal, in fourth place.

Despite there being a change °

in scheduling of the games, and

this being just the third meet of '

the year, coaches and athletes
are optimistic about obtaining
qualifying standards.

Weekend

. Just shy of qualifying over
the weekend were Michelle
Cumberbatch, Sasha Ferguson,
Sasha Joyce,-Gerard Brown,
Kellie Rolle, Taneil Poitier,
Tracy Morrison, Elvin Carey
and Lesley Dorceval.

- Ferguson, who barely missed
out on the games last year is
back to prove herself in the

open women’s discus throw
event. —

She said: “I wanted to qual-
ify today, but I was just shy of
it, the mark was 40.95m and I
threw 40.24m.

“Hopefully next week I will
be able to come out stronger
than this week and surpass the
mark.

Problem

“My only problem was I was
running of my blocks, I wasn’t
squaring up properly. I am
looking to get that down pat
so on Saturday I can come out
strong.”

For Cumberbatch, a gold
medallist at last year’s games,
moving up into the.big ranks
will call for a lot more push.
She is hoping to obtain the
qualifying mark in the open

‘women’s 400m and 400 hur-

dles.

During the meet, Cumber-
batch ran 58.44 seconds in the
400m for a second place finish
and 102:55.00 in the hurdles
for a second and first place fin-
ishing, respectively.

She was beaten in the 400m
by Joyce in a time of 58.23 sec-
onds -: both girls will need to
run a 54.30 second quarter to
qualify.

Cumberbatch said: “Realis-

tically I am more likely to

qualify in the hurdles than in
the 400m.

“Technically I ran a sound
race, even though I didn’t exe-
cute the way I wanted to it was
a pretty smooth race.”

MARK KNOWLES and his
Canadian partner Daniel Nestor
came within one match of winning
their first tournament of the new
year.

Last year’s top ranked duo
remain winless in three outings as
they fell short of defending their
men’s doubles title at the Open 13
Marseille in France yesterday.

The top seeded team reached the
final, only to lose in two straight
sets to the No.4 team of Martin
Damm and Radek Stepanek of the
Czech Republic, 7-6 (4), 7-6 (5):

“We came close, but it was a
tough loss,” said Knowles,
moments after the defeat. “It was a
pretty good match, but we just
came up short.”

Knowles was referring to the fact
that they had six chances at break
point, but Damm and Stepanek
never had one opportunity in the
match.

As a matter of fact, in the first
set, Knowles and Nestor had a set
point on their opponents’ serve,
but they couldn’t capitalise on it.

“Tt obviously comes down to sud-
den death tennis,” Knowles admit-
ted. “We had a few tie breakers,
but they obviously played the tie
breakers a little better than us.

“We could have used any bit of
luck in the tie breaker.”

Advantage

Just as in the second set, “when
Knowles and Nestor had five
opportunities to break, they were
unable to take advantage of their
opponent’s misfortunes.

“They came up with huge serves
and they played very well on the
break points,” Knowles reflected.
“So we had our chances. They just
played well on the big points.”

To top it off, Damm and
Stepanek served extremely well
throughout the match, but more
specifically in the tie breakers to
prevail.

“We can’t really fault ourselves.
We didn’t finish one break point,
but we created a few opportuni-
ties. We just didn’t take them. It
was just a tough loss,” Knowles
added.

After losing in the first round of
their first two tournaments for the
year, Knowles proclaimed that they
were just thrilled to be in their first
final.

“Anytime you get to the final
obviously you want to win,”
Knowles stressed:

“But based on how we got off to
a slow start down there in Aus-
tralia, this is obviously a step in the
right direction.

“We got back into the final and if
there’s one thing we did well this
week is we played well.” -

“But we would have loved to
have won it. We just have to get
ready for next week and say that
while this was a tough loss, it was a
great week for us getting into the.
final.”

But now that they are winless so
far, he said the goal right now is
try and get the monkey of their
back.

They hope to redeem themselves
when they travel to Rotterdam,
Holland where they will play in the.
ABN AMRO world Tennis Tour-
nament this week.

“It’s going to be a tough tourna-
ment,” said Knowles, who is still
ranked at No.1 individually with
Nestor at No.2.

“We just hope that we can get
our first victory.”
