into a utility pole on Carmichael

~ Road. Police issued a nation-
wide advisory urging motorists
to take care on the roads.

Patricia Fox, of Mitchell
Street, Adelaide Village, had
been travelling west on
Carmichael Road when the
crash occurred.

Just after passing the Pond
Wash Laundromat, she

appeared to lose control of her
truck, licensed T22001.

Emergency crews pro-
nounced Ms Fox dead at the
scene, making her the 17th
fatality for the year.

Police Inspector Walter
Evans said the death toll is far
too high and claimed police
were taking immediate action
to curb the carnage.

"In light of the two accidents
over the past two days," said
Inspector Evans, "police are
issuing an advisory to the
motoring public to drive within
the speed limit and to take
extreme caution and care.”

Two persons remain in
Princess Margaret Hospital
after a man, yet to be identi-
fied, lost control of his vehicle
on Sir Milo Butler Highway and
crashed into trees lining the
road.

The driver’s foot was severed
in the accident.

The jaws of life were used to
get the victim out of the wreck-
age.

Police have noted that speed
was definitely a factor in the
crash.

Opposition shock? at Keod Smith ING letter

. THE opposition yesterday
expressed “shock and disap-
pointment” at an “inappropri-

Commission chairman Keod

Bahamas. :
Opposition leader Alvin
Smith told The Tribune yester-
day that Mr Smith’s action was

ister Perry Christie is unable
to control the conduct of those '
under him.

“I hope for the sake ae the
Bahamas that someone in that
Cabinet takes control and
brings more discipline and

more compliance with Mr

Christie’s code of ethics,

‘because Mr Christie is unable

to do that,” he said.

added feature that enhances
the theme of luxury suggested
by the yachts.

enduring the long lines asso-
ciated with larger shows.

“Whether they are in the
market for a new yacht or jet
or just want to take a break
and peruse the offerings in a
relaxed tropical paradise, vis-
itors to the TYJS will find
what they are looking for,”
said Mr Bryant.

Bahamians who attend can
get a glimpse inside the luxu-
ry yachts, which will be

Judicial review trial on
development is set for April 26

By KARIN HERIG
Tribune Staff Reporter

A DATE has been set for the judi-
cial review trial on Heads of Agree-
ment for the Guana Cay development.

The review, which will examine the
question of government’s authority to
enter into the controversial deal, will
begin on April 26.

Prime Minister Perry Christie, as
minister responsible for Crown Lands
and Wendal Major, as Secretary to
the National Economic Council, are
named as the respondents.

History

Lawyer for the Save Guana Cay

Reef Association (SGCRA) Fred

‘ Smith said that the review is the first of
its kind in the history of the Bahamas
to be granted on environmental
grounds.

Mr Smith yesterday reiterated that
the Association “is committed to chal-
lenging the central government’s
takeover of their island-culture life
and environment.”

“In particular, the Bahamian resi-
dents of Great Guana Cay are
shocked that the government should
be giving away 150 acres of Crown
Land to foreigners.

“Despite repeated demands for an
explanation from the government, it
has failed to account to the Bahamian
public about this Crown Land issue,”

he said.

Mr Smith pointed out that the min-
ister responsible for local government,
V Alfred Gray, has reaffirmed that
the government is committed to pro-
moting local government and encour-
aging Bahamians to fully participate in
the democratic process of local self-
governance.

“This is one of the big issues con-
cerning the residents of Great Guana
Cay. They consider that they have a
right to determine the future of their
island,” he said.

The association’s lawyer also said
that Mr Christie, proclaiming April
as ‘Coastal Awareness Month’, is
“pure hypocrisy on the part of the
prime minister.”

“On the one hand promoting

awareness for the sensitive coastal
environments, and on the other hand
giving away for free wet lands, beach-
es, and forests for destruction by for-
eign developers,” he said.

Preserve

Co-chairman of the SGCRA Troy
Albury added : “Government should
keep our Crown Land and preserve it
for Bahamians as a national park
under the National Trust. We do not
need to give away Crown Land to.a . ,{
foreign developer to ‘preserve’ for .
Bahamians. That is what the National
Trust is for!” Aw

The residents of Great Guana Cay
are opposing the $500 Passerine devel-
opment, which they claim will cause
irreversible damage to the island’s
environment and sentially fegube
their quality of life.

WORK on the New Providence Road Improvement Project
will begin as soon as the International Development Bank
approves the development strategy proposed by the Ministry of
Works, Deputy Director Khader Alikhan told The .Tribune

yesterday.

-- According to Mr Alikhan, attempts to secure the project’s
completion by just one firm have been so unsuccessful that
the’ Ministry of Works was prompted to take a different

approach.

Mr Alikhan said a proposal to divide the project into "vari-
ous slices," to be awarded to several local as well as international
contractors, has already been subjected to the IDB for its

approval.

The New Providence Road Improvement Project was due to
be completed in March, 2003: However, it was stalled in mid-
2001 when the UK based company Associated Asphalt went

bankrupt.

Associated Asphalt was awarded a $52.2 million contract in
early 2001 to construct some 19 corridors along 13.1 miles of
existing roads as well as improve 9.5 miles.

Ultimately

The contact was ultimately terminated in November, 2002,
and the Works Ministry sought another contractor to com-

plete the project.

Mr Alikhan noted that a five-month bidding period was
implemented between June and November, 2004, to award a
firm the contract to complete the project.

He also noted, however, that at the end of that period no bid
had been completed between the ministry and the only inter-
national contractor to qualify for the completion of the project,

Argentinian Jose Cartellone.

Due to these setbacks, Mr Alikhan said a proposal to divide

the project was ultimately devised.

“Once our strategy is approved by the IDB, we would then
proceed within the next month or two to seek both international
as well as local firms to work on the project,” he said.

The $5.2 million Harrold Road development project, sched-
uled for completion next month, was moved from the stalled
NPRIP and contracted to Bethels Trucking and Heavy Equip-
ment and Bahamas Hotmix in February, 2004.

Sidney Stubbs was elected

constituents, but to date, in
my opinion, he has serve
only his own. It is my under-
standing that Mr. Stubbs
continues to draw his parlia-
mentary salary yet he can-
not vote to effect positive
change for the good people
of the Holy Cross Con-

the way::they,.are in the
Stubbs affair; they are sim-

The PLP know quite well
that their performance to

Morally and ethically they
say “where you put me”. Mr
Christie Can never imagine
the negative moral and
social fallout that his present
cabinet is having on the
youth of this nation.

that Minister Pratt’s words

STEPHEN ROLLE
Nassau,

WHEN a man strives for the top prize he must be careful |,
not to chop at shadows nor should he avoid shaking hands
with the truth. And so it was with Montagu MP Brent:
Symonette’s interview with The Tribune (March 30).

J... Lo illustrate. Hubert Ingraham’s decisiveness he erro-
neously said that when Hubert Ingraham found my actions

|‘Snappropriate”, he said “have your resignation: on my desk'{'

by 5pm or you are fired”.

He did not tell me to have my resignation on his desk by
5pm nor did he mention the word “fired”. He asked that both
Tennyson Well’s and my resignations to be delivered by

6pm.

In fact, the question still remains as to whether my resig- |

nation, which he had asked for, arrived at Government
House before or after Hubert Ingraham informed the Gov-
ernor General that he had decided to fire me. But that sto-. |

ry will be told at another date.

' Knowing the facts I must assume, therefore, that Mr.
Symonette was referring to his own demise as the chair-
man of the Airport Authority. Maybe Mr. Symonette,
who IJ understand was balking at resigning, was told by the
former Prime Minister to have his resignation in by 5pm or

be fired.

It was inappropriate when Mr. Symonette decided to do
business with a company in which he was a shareholder:
He should have known better. This was beyond a shadow of

a doubt inappropriate.

When I became Minister of Agriculture and Fisheries
my first instruction to the Permanent Secretary was to advise
the staff that no transactions by that Ministry were to be car-
ried out with Executive Printers because I was a sharehold-
er in that company. I did the same thing when I transferred

Ministries.

This avoided the charge of “conflict of interest” ever
being levelled at me, as was levelled at Mr. Symonette.
Mr. Symonette would be well advised to take that advice.

COB closes $3.2m_
property deal

@ By KILAH ROLLE
Tribune Staff Reporter

THE College of the
Bahamas yesterday closed a
$3.2 million deal for a
Thompson Blvd commercial
property near the Oakes
Field campus.

College officials say it is
the first in a series of upcom-
ing real estate purchases for
an expansion which it is
hoped will lead to the goal
of university status.

The 40,000 square-foot
property, which formally
housed the Passport Office,
the Criminal Detective Unit
and the Ministry of Housing
-and Social Services, will
undergo renovations costing
four million dollars before
opening it’s doors to the col-
lege community.

COB president Dr Rodney
Smith said the two-story
complex is the first asset that
COB holds in its own name,
with all other college prop-
erties owned by the
Bahamas Treasury.

Schools

He said that once refur-
bished, the building will
accommodate the schools of
social sciences and educa-
tion; a university bookstore
and business centre; a cafe;
lecture rooms and theatres;
the office of graduate stud-
ies; a full service business
centre; a 40-foot boardroom
and “edu-tech” rooms.

Dr Smith said that by the
fall semester, he expects the
building to be occupied by
faculty and some graduate
students. This, he said will
go a long way to “freeing up
much needed space for a
growing institution.”

Chairman of COB
Franklyn Wilson said the

Mr Wilson said that COB

plans to purchase additional }
property in the Thompson :
Blvd area, along with 100 :
acres of property on Glad- :

stone Road.

“This in no way limits our ;
broader vision for the Uni- :
versity of the Bahamas,” Mr }
Wilson continued, “we still

see that as a multi-campus

university and this is simply
one of several throughout :

the Bahamian islands.”
According to Mr Wilson,

the college is presently
undergoing a period of

"assessment and renewal".

"This process will not be :
easy," Mr Wilson said. "But :
at the end of the day the col- }
lege is going to be our Uni- }

versity of The Bahamas.”

Call for legislation

against graffiti

MP hits out
at vandalism

By KARIN HERIG
Tribune Staff Reporter |

CARMICHAEL MP John
Carey said he is concerned about
the amount of vandalism in his
constituency and has called for
anti-graffiti legislation.

Mr Carey, parliamentary sec-
retary in the Ministry of Works
and Utilities, said his constituen-
cy has “a serious problem with
persons defacing public and pri-
vate properties with paint and
spray cans.”

He said: “Over the past few
years, there has been a concerted
effort by persons in our commu-
nities who exhibit anti-social



























shopping centre. This com-
pletely strangles the traffic and





behaviour in the form of graffiti
to deface properties.”

“It is totally unacceptable and
many residents have come to me
to complain about the graffiti and
asked that I do something about
it,” he said.

The MP said that when driving

throughout Nassau, “one would ~

find any number of walls, build-
ings and locations with graffiti on
it. Phd

“This demonstrates that we
have a serious problem on our
island. To a lesser extent this
problem exists in some of the
Family Islands.

“However, if the Bahamas is
to succeed it will have to engage a
more rigid approach to dealing
with certain anti-social behaviour

as it adversely impacts our sur- |

roundings and environment,” he
said.
Mr Carey said that the anti-

- graffiti campaigns in the past have

not been enough, and that it may
be appropriate to introduce anti-
graffiti legislation, which “specif-
ically speaks to the consequences
as a result of violating our beau-
tiful surroundings.” .

“There are too many instances
throughout the city of Nassau
where graffiti is evident. Bahami-
ans must not be tolerant of slack-
ness and unsightly areas that can
be corrected and prevented. Graf-
fiti sends the wrong message to
our citizens.

“It sends the message that it
doesn’t matter how our sur-
roundings look and that criminals
and their evil ways are welcome,”
he said.

Mr Carey has encouraged all



from people who are’
making news in their
neighbourhoods. Perhaps
you are raising funds for a
good cause, campaigning
for improvements in the
area or have won an
award. ©

THE TRIBUNE :

teachers to reduce school viol

@ By CARA BRENNEN
Tribune Staff Reporter

INCREASING the number
of male teachers in the school
system can reduce violence
among students said the
Bahamian Forum following it’s
debate on public education
earlier this month. —

During the discussion, it was
revealed that a local gang is
trying to infiltrate primary
schools.

On April 6, the local think-
_tank hosted a discussion enti-
tled: “Public education: a ser-
vice or disservice to Bahamian
development.”

Meetings

The meeting featured for-
mer principal EJ Bowe, for-
mer teacher Julia Barnwell;
and Cassandra Davenport, the
Bahamian Forum’s executive
committee and lead researcher.

Mr Bowe, who has been an
educator for some 30 years,
said that over the past two
decades, “successive govern-

ments have pushed or caused _ -

many male teachers to exit the

“We all know that more

male models are needed in the ©

primary, junior and senior high
schools. The constant bashing
of the men must cease and fur-
ther, the system must stop
overlooking them when they
are in line and deserving of
promotions.”

Mrs Davenport noted that

over the past several years
~ school violence has escalated

to the point that police are
needed in some schools to
maintain peace.

She pointed out that young

people are often faced with sit-
uations that lead them to

become violent.

“There is a talk of a vicious

gang attempting to penetrate
the primary schools in our
country recruiting members by
using bullying tactics, violating

Mrs Davenport said that

women as principals may not

Research ~~

According to Mrs Daven-

She said verbal abuse of

Mr Bowe noted that good

almost at the exclusion of
everything else, and tragical-
ly, this thinking prevails in
our schools,” he said.

Bishop Hall called for strict
measures to be put in place
“to raise our schools to fields
of learning, rather than fields
of violence.”

In making a comparison
between the Bahamas in the
50’s and 60’s and the country
today, the Bishop said that
education was once the fore-
most tool for positive
progress and community
development, especially for
the masses.

He said the Bahamas is
now becoming an “anti-intel-
lectual Junkanoo society”,
where ignorance is reward-
ed and a lack of interest or
concern “holds sway over
much of our culture.”

national consciousness

Bishop Hall said that edu-
cational exercises such as
drama, intelligent dialogue,
and reading do not receive
public support, while support
for proms and parties is
strong.

Money

He pointed out that the
money spent on these events
and on the latest parapher-
nalia outweighs the money
spent on text books and sup-
port for parent teacher asso-
ciations.

“Adding to our dilemma
is the tragedy in the Bahami-
an Church in which
ignorance is sanctified and
foolishness is used to cater’
to the whims and wishes-
of the crowd,” said Bishop |
Hall.

GOVERNMENT has been
asked for $50,000 to help man-
age the public transportation
system.

Reuben Rahming, president
of the Public Transportation
Association (PTA), said gov-
ernment has never invested in
the system, even though there
are currently hundreds of bus
franchises in operation.

Mr Rahming critised the gov-
ernment for raising fees for
these franchises, and said the
small businesses seem to be
under attack.

"We represent the largest
conglomerate of businesses and
franchise’ owners under one
umbrella," he said, "averaging
more than 250 small businesses,
and what money has any gov-
ernment invested into this?"

According to Mr Rahming,
the PTA is attempting to
revamp the negaiive perception
of jitneys, and change their sta-
tus to that of a vital entity.

Intelligent

"We represent intelligent
individuals," he said, "there are
many doctors, lawyers, and oth-
er professionals who actually
own these franchises. We are
on, our way to completing our
co-operative structure and our
approach is nationalistic, we
cannot operate such a vital enti-
ty ina vacuum."

The proposal submitted to
the government, nicknamed
“Operation Slow Down”, aims
to cut down on the reckless dri-
ving or the "rat race" many dri-
vers compete in on the road, he
said.

"We can, within two weeks,
cause every bus to proceed on
their routes without ever
exceeding the speed limit,” Mr
Rahming claimed.

“This may not answer all
questions but :it will definitely

put a:good dent into some of :

the problems going on today."

Mr Rahming said that there
seems to be a myth that jitneys
are the main contributors to the
traffic congestion in New Prov-
idence.

"This is not the case," he said,
"the reality is that the high vol-
ume of cars is the problem, not
the jitneys."

According to Mr Rahming,
both the number of vehicles and
the general level of vehicle qual-
ity contribute to congestion and
harm the environment. He said
that he is taking proactive steps
to address these problems with-
in his association.

"We can put a significant
dent in the environmental
degradation that is occurring
because of the massive amount
of cars, by starting with improv-
ing our own systems," he said.

Mr Rahming said the associ-
ation is working with a private

‘entity to put in place "ahead of

any governmental regulations,"
an emissions testing system
which will be mandatory for all
their members.

Importance of displaying
an attitude of gratitude

Fre some five years,
mostly in the early
1970s, we were employed in
the personnel department of
Resorts International on Par-
adise Island, having manage-
ment responsibility for train-
ing during the latter period of
our stay with that large com-
pany. It was an experience
that taught us many valuable
lessons, and they have boded
us well ever since.

During that time, we dis- -

covered that the best workers
are not always found in the
management echelon — or
even at the clerical level, for
that matter. Sometimes, they
are more often found among
those who occupy the lower
ranks of the staff totem pole.
Thus, we were pleased that
the company not only recog-
nised this fact, but also con-
sistently rewarded excellence,
irrespective of its employee’s
rank, by demonstrating its
appreciation for the same via
many tangible expressions of
gratitude.

While this wholesome trend
has continued throughout the
local hotel industry, it remains
the exception rather than the
rule in far too many other

offered the following admo-
nition: “We must learn to
develop an attitude of grati-
tude.” Spoken in his crisp
Palmetto Point, Eleuthera,
accent, the letter ‘h’ always
preceded the letter ‘a’ in atti-
tude, seemingly as if for
emphasis.

Bee time we heard
that admonition, wé
never failed to reflect upon
the discrimination meted out
to deserving workers at the
lower employment level in this
country, and that reflection
only served to accentuate the
profoundness of Mr Bethel’s
serious advice. Thus, it was
our pleasure last weekend to
attend an event that so mag-
nificently depicted the impor-
tance of displaying an attitude
of gratitude, especially to one
such worker who had given
long and exemplary service to
his employer.

We refer to the farewell

areas of employment, howev-
er. There, through blatant sta-
tus discrimination in the staff
structure, the best performers
at the lower levels are rarely
afforded any public recogni-
tion for their contribution to
their respective company’s
success, let alone given any
tangible expression of grati-
tude for the same.Such hon-
ours seem always to be
reserved for those in the upper
levels of employment.

reception given by the Antiq-
uities, Monuments and Muse-
ums Corporation (AMMC) in
honour and appreciation of
Mr Rufus George Johnson. A
retiring tour guide at Fort
Charlotte, he had faithfully
performed as such at that his-
torical site for almost a half
century — having commenced
his exemplary service long
before either the AMMC or
even the Department of
Archives had been estab-
lished.

Mr Johnson was born on
February 21, 1940, at Little
Harbour, in the Berry Islands.

In January, 1958, he com-

menced his Public Service
employment with the Devel-
opment Board, of which the



MACKEY

late Sir Stafford Sands was .-

chairman. The Development
Board was then located in a
small wooden building in
Rawson Square. The board,
which later moved to new

offices at the Carlton House in ©

East Street, eventually
became the Ministry of
Tourism in, 1964, when inter-
nal self-government (Cabinet-
style) was accorded The
Bahamas, then a British
colony.

The event was held appro-

priately in the moat area of
the fort, under decorative
white tents, and with old-fash-
ioned kerosene lamps on each
table. The staff at the fort had

done a remarkable job at |

making the scene befitting the

occasion, all in appreciation |

of their retiring colleague’s

comradeship, exemplary

deportment, and willingness

to impart his narrative skills .
to them over the years. The ®

AMMC proposes to offer the
fort to facilitate weddings par-
ties and similar functions in
that historic and yet generally
secure setting.

sentation of AMMC.

staff, joining Mr Johnson on
this special evening were his
wife, family members and oth-
er well-wishers. Included
among the latter was the Rev-
erend Fr Michael Kelly, the
rector of his beloved Our
Lady’s Roman Catholic

» Church, who gave the invoca-

Z

‘tion. Master of ceremonies for

the occasion Was his faithful
protégé Mr Byron Trotman,
himself an outstanding tour
guide at Fort Charlotte. The
evening’s only damper was the
absence of Mr Johnson’s long-
time friend and fellow tour
guide, the late Mr Wenzel Git-
tens, who died three years ago.
During the reception, a tape
recording of one of Mr John-
son’s guided tours was played
over the sound system. It pre-
sented him at his best, while
giving a detailed account of
the fort to one of the many
thousands of visitor groups he
was privileged to escort
through that historical site.
Given the ease with which
Mr Johnson came over that
tape performing his task, one
can safely imagine that, if
awoken at midnight, he could
readily give an encore with-

out omitting the minutest
detail.

One of the highlights of the
evening was a moving tribute
to Mr Johnson by Dr Keith
Tinker, the AMMC’s manag-
ing director, for his long and
exemplary service to that cor-
poration and the other gov-
ernment agencies that were
previously entrusted with the

shirking from a challenge. He
is truly an ambassador of
goodwill for the corporation,
ever willing to assist wherever
he can.”

Continuing, Dr Tinker
added: “His knowledge of the
fort extends beyond this his-
toric site to world affairs. Mr
Johnson is indeed a Bahamian
hero of distinction.” Dr Tinker



“One of the highlights of the

responsibility for our coun-
try’s historical sites.

“In his remarks, Dr Tinker,
among other sentiments, com-
mented thus:

“Mr Johnson is the essence
of humility and professional-
ism. He has always presented
himself with dignity, never

concluded his tribute by
declaring Mr Johnson the

Smith and Miss Lavette Col-
lie, respectfully, with his trib-
ute in songs. In so doing, he
treated all in attendance with
beautiful renditions of two
lovely songs that were most
appropriate for the occasion.

Afterwards, Mr Johnson, in
expressing his gratitude to all,
admonished his former col-
leagues to always give their
best in attempting to maintain
the high standard of service
that he had imparted to them
by instruction and example
over the years.

All things considered, it was
truly a delightful occasion, one
that was totally enjoyed by Mr
Johnson’s family, his friends
and colleagues. A glow of sat-
isfaction and hope radiated
from the faces of the latter
group, as they seemingly envi-
sioned a similar display of that
attitude of gratitude when
their respective retirement

‘times roll around. Finally, in

conveying our congratulations
to Mr Johnson, we pray that
God will continue to bless him
with good health, thereby
enabling him to fully enjoy his
retirement years.

However, Mr Gibson said the matter is before
Cabinet, as the Cable Beach sale is being dealt
with directly under the auspices of Prime Min-
ister Perry Christie.

“J am sure that whatever sale.occurs the
Bahamian people’s revenues would be given
‘to the Treasury,” said Mr Gibson.

Each casino is required to pay into the Trea-
sury on winnings of up to $20 million, a mini-
mum of $4.3 million.

However, Mr Gibson pointed out that the
gaming board does not collect taxes.

“The. Public Treasury is the only statutory
authority that has the power to collect gaming
taxes. We have no power to collect taxes or
force people to pay their taxes. The only power
we have is to,revoke licences for the breach of
regulations,” he said.

Government is said to be working. on legisla-
tion to give the board this authority.

Point number five encour-
aged the company to engage in
discussions with the Bahamas
Chamber of Commerce and “
designated group of persons”
from Hepburn Town and the
Grand Bahama Port Authority
to “review the viability of relo-
cating residents of Hepburn
Town.”

Alvin Smith said he was
shocked by this letter because
an ambassador to the environ-
ment should not be advising a
company how to proceed if they
wanted his blessing. Had he
done it with all the companies
involved “the perception may
not be as it is now,” he added.

He questioned why the BEST
chairman would want this par-
ticular company to “receive
such favour.”

Security departments.
The new policy required
_all US citizens and foreigners
visiting the Bahamas,
Caribbean countries, Central
and South America, and re-
entering the US to present a
valid passport as of January
1, 2006.

The rule was also proposed
for Canada and Mexico,
which were to be given until
January 1, 2008, to comply
with the new requirements.

The Bahamas, in addition
to other countries in the
region, said it feared the
implementation date would
not give the tourism indus-

try sufficient time to adjust-

to the change and would ulti-
mately have a detrimental
impact on visitor arrivals.
President Bush said he was
concerned this new policy
could hinder the flow of traf-
fic between the US and oth-

er countries mentioned in
the new rule.

“If people have to have.a
passport, it’s going to disrupt
the honest flow of traffic..I
think there’s some flexibility
in the law, and that’s what
we’re checking out right
now. -

“I thought there was a bet-
ter way to expedite the legal
flow of traffic and people,”
he said.

The US president said he
has now ordered a review of ,

the rules.

Earlier this week, tourism
officials told The Tribune
that the period until Decem-
ber was insufficient to devel-
opment an awareness of the
new policy within the indus-
try.

The Bahamas Hotel Asso-
ciation also wrote letters to

‘Relive the moment’

A ollege of the Bahamas Student Gala Ball -

he College of the

Bahamas Union of

recently welcomed

members of the
public to the second annual COB

“Over the past few years,
COBUS has made powerful
strides in promoting the student
voice and signaling a new devel-
opment in interactions between
students, faculty, staff and admin-
istrators.

“Leadership is a choice, one
that your organisation has accept-
ed whole-heartedly and to the
best of your abilities,” said Colyn
Major, vice-president of Student
Affairs.

Ballroom

The event was held in the
Grand Ballroom of SuperClubs
Breezes resort, Cable Beach,
under the theme, “Relive The
Moment”. -

Said Theo Cooper, president
of COBUS: “As we leave office
in short order, and as I reflect on
the year, certainly I can say that
God has indeed been good.
Through all of the rough times
and the challenges, tonight is tes-
tament that despite, we have
made it over.

“T would like to personally con-
gratulate COBUS 2004-2005 for a
job well done. You have certain-
ly left an indelible legacy at the
college, and I challenge those
coming after us to follow suit.”

game,” said Wood after he
‘scored the game’s winning
‘run. “Once I saw the passed
ball, that was it.”

Bethel, making his return to
ithe New Providence Softball
Association for the first time
in more than a decade, said
he had a difficult decision to
‘make against the loaded
Truckers’ line-up, but he was
‘prepared to deal with them
one by one.

going on in my mind was to

I could,” he insisted. “Unfor-
tunately, we had too many
passed balls that hurt us.”

Bethel, who vowed to turn
the tables on the Truckers in
their next game, was working
on a.no-hit shut-out with a
two-run lead going into the
sixth inning.

But after Adrian Hutchin-
son survived a strike out on a
passed ball, he managed to
scramble around the bases
and broke the ice for the
Truckers on another passed
ball from catcher Tommy
‘Bucker T’ Ferguson.

Then Wood officially greet-
ed Bethel back in the league

OrPRPNNA



with a one-out solo home run
‘that tied the scored at 2-2.

It went down to the extra
inning and the Dorcy Park
Boyz were the first to take
advantage of the Internation-
al Softball Federation’s tie-

breaking rule that calls for the ©

final out in the last inning to
go to second base.

But in their half of the
frame, Hutchinson once again
scored to tie the game on
speedy Van ‘Lil Joe’ John-
son’s RBI triple.

* Johnson then tried to score,
but was thrown out at the
plate.

Wood eventually was put



on base with an intentional |
walk. As was Stephen ‘Slug- ©
ger’ Brown and Jamal ‘Sarge’

Johnson to load the bases for
Winston Seymour.
But Electro Telecom didn’ t

have a catcher that could hold;
- onto Bethel’s hard throwing

pitches...

Mario Ford, ‘who had
switched from short to catch
for starter Mardoche Simon
from the third inning, allowed
a pitch to get away from him
as Wood scooted home with
the game winner.

Wood said they had some-
thing special for Bethel since
he decided to come on their
territory.

“He then been to all of the
islands, except Long Island to
pitch,” "Wood noted. “But we
want him to know that since
he’s here, it’s going to feel
good watching him in the
stands watching the round
robin.”

Bethel took exception to the
remarks, saying that this was
just his first game back.

“If we had a good catcher
tonight, we would have come

out on top,” Bethel declared.
“They got one or two runs on |,

strike outs that the catcher
couldn’t hold onto.

“Only Tougie Wood got a
homer to right field. But come

next game, when we play them
again, it will be a different
game. We will have a catch-
er.”

Bethel indicated that he’s
expecting to bring imhis older
brother Edmund ‘Binks’
Bethel from Eleuthera to

. catch for him.

While the Truckers wait,
Wood said they will enjoy the
win. He was even more elated
about hitting the homer.

Pitcher

“He was looking good the
whole game. He was having a
lot of strike outs,” said Wood
of Bethel. “But the problem
with the Truckers is we

_haven’t seen a fast-pitching

pitcher like him since last year.

“So I was just waiting on
that nice fat riser and once I
hit it, I knew it was gone.”

Ford admitted that their
catching hurt them more than
anything else. .

“I was hoping the catcher
would have been able to hold
the balls, but the ball was get-
ting there much quicker than

- he had anticipated,” Ford said.

“Once we work on the
catching area, we will be right
there battling with them for
the league’s title.”

Ford said they only wanted



Truckers

ampions



to prove a point to the Truck-
ers.

“They were bigging up
themselves saying that they
were going to stop us in three
innings,” he said.

“But they can’t stop this
team in three. We took them
to eight innings. If they want
to beat this team, they should
have beat us long time. We’re
a young team, inexperienced,
but we’re here to have fun
with them.” |

Wood ended up with a 1-
for-3 night with an, RBI and
two runs scored and Van
Johnson was 1-for-4 to lead
the Truckers. Terrance Cul-
mer came in relief of Leroy
Thompson to pitch in the
eighth for the win.

Thompson gave up five hits
and struck out 12, including
the side in both the fifth and
seventh as he went head-to-
head with Bethel.

Bethel went the distance fir-
ing a three hitter, striking out
16 batters in the loss. He
struck out three in the third
(one on a passed ball) and
four in both the fifth and sixth
(on one and two passed balls
respectively).

He also helped his own
cause going 2-for-4 with a run
and Andy Ford was 1-for-4
with a run as well.

Christine has a swinging time
as the DHL Brackettes win

@ By BRENT STUBBS
Senior Sports Reporter

VETERAN infielder Chris-
tine Saunders found herself in
the ideal batter’s situation on
Thursday night at the Churchill
Tener Knowles National Soft-
ball Stadium.

Her DHL Brackettes were
trailing the Proper Care Pool
ladies’ team 8-5 with two out
and the bases loaded in the bot-
tom of the seventh inning.

In her at-bat, Saunders ripped
a shot to right-centrefield, clear-
ing the bases on an in-the-park
home run to lift the Brackettes
to a 10-8 come-from-behind vic-
tory.

Runs)

“All I wanted to do was score
the runs home so we could win
the game,” said Saunders as the
victory kept DHL in fourth
place in the New Providence
Softball Association’s standings
at 2-3.

“We started off slow scoring
runs and we were struggling.
But with the last at-bat, all I
was thinking about was hitting
the ball and advancing the run-
ners.” \

Saunders’ game winning hit
came after Evia Knowles, pinch

The even will begin

“two persons scram-
ble”.

Prizes will be award-
ed to the first gross
winner; net winners of
first; second and third
places. Prizes will also
be awarded for the
longest drive for
ladies, men and
juniors.

The tournament is
intended to attract the
entire golfing commu-
nity within the
Bahamas - golfers of
yesteryear and those
still actively involved
in the game, along with
Ken’s friends from
abroad.

The presentation and
honouring luncheon
will follow immediately
after the tournament
where non-golfers,
family members,
friends and parish-
ioners of Ken’s will
join in for “a special
tribute”.

“Big O” Wood (who led off the
rally with a double), scored on
Lilly McDonald’s one-our run-
producing single.

After McDonald’s single, Ali-
cia Rahming singled and Dor-
nell Butler walked to load the
bases for Saunders.

Losing pitcher Sherry Beneby
said she had one bad inning and
it turned out to be the down-
fall of the Proper Care, who suf-
fered their second straight
defeat.

“Just that one hitting when
they hit the ball,” Beneby
stressed. “I tried to catch the
pitch. I tried to keep the ball
up, but I went down and she
just hit the ball.”

Saunders said it was good to
be the heroine.

“It feels good to see how we
came back from behind and win
the game,” Saunders stressed.
“We’re going some place this
year. We’re going to be a force
in the playoffs.

“We have the team and we
have the pitching. With Ernes-
tine (Stubbs) back on the
mound, we’re a lot better than

- we were last year. We’re going

someplace this year.”
Proper Care, a fragmented

team from last year’s rookie’

runners-up Degeo Bommers,
lost their second straight game,
but Beneby said they’re not

pushing the panic button yet.

“We’re not worrying about
it. When it comes to the end of
the season, we will be right
there,” she summed up.

@ e
Driving

Saunders led DHL’s offen-
sive attack with a 2-for-4 night,
driving in five runs and scoring
once. Wood was 2-for-4 with an
RBI, while McDonald and Rah-
ming were both 2-for-4 with a
RBI and two runs scored.

Stubbs went the distance toss-
ing an 11-hitter, striking out sev-
en to out-duel Beneby, who
gave up 10 hits on five strike
outs.

Stephanie Goodridge was 3-
for-4 with three runs; Vonette
Nairn 1-for-4 with two RBIs
and a run; former Brackettes’
catcher Debbie McClure 2-for-

2 with a RBI and run and Bene-

by helped her own cause going
2-for-4 with a RBI and run
scored.

@ TONIGHT, the battle of
the undefeated will take place at
the stadium as the defending
champions Electro Telecom
Wildcats and the Randella’s

Swingers clash in the feature

contest at 8.30pm.
Both are going into the game
tied for first place at 3-0.

for Queen’s

College

SIX “old boys” of
Queen’s College have
donated a total of $600,000
to help the school’s campus
redevelopment scheme.

Olympic gold medallist
Sir Durward Knowles and
former Cabinet minister Sir
Geoffrey Johnstone are
among those contributing
$100,000 each to the scheme.

‘The others are Captain
Geoffrey Brown, business-
man John Morley, builder
George Mosko and lawyer
Godfrey Kelly.

The donations were
announced at a school
assembly at which Sir Dur-
ward praised the role QC
had played in the develop-

into a utility pole on Carmichael

~ Road. Police issued a nation-
wide advisory urging motorists
to take care on the roads.

Patricia Fox, of Mitchell
Street, Adelaide Village, had
been travelling west on
Carmichael Road when the
crash occurred.

Just after passing the Pond
Wash Laundromat, she

appeared to lose control of her
truck, licensed T22001.

Emergency crews pro-
nounced Ms Fox dead at the
scene, making her the 17th
fatality for the year.

Police Inspector Walter
Evans said the death toll is far
too high and claimed police
were taking immediate action
to curb the carnage.

"In light of the two accidents
over the past two days," said
Inspector Evans, "police are
issuing an advisory to the
motoring public to drive within
the speed limit and to take
extreme caution and care.”

Two persons remain in
Princess Margaret Hospital
after a man, yet to be identi-
fied, lost control of his vehicle
on Sir Milo Butler Highway and
crashed into trees lining the
road.

The driver’s foot was severed
in the accident.

The jaws of life were used to
get the victim out of the wreck-
age.

Police have noted that speed
was definitely a factor in the
crash.

expressed “shock and disap-
pointment” at an “inappropri-

Commission chairman Keod

Smith to a company wanting .

Bahamas. :
Opposition leader Alvin
Smith told The Tribune yester-
day that Mr Smith’s action was

to control the conduct of those '

“I hope for the sake ae the
Bahamas that someone in that
Cabinet takes control and
brings more discipline and

more compliance with Mr

Christie’s code of ethics,

‘because Mr Christie is unable

to do that,” he said.
Alvin Smith said the letter

On the face of it the letter,
‘sent to the lawyer of the LNG
company Tractebel, gave the
impression that Keod Smith

The letter lists six points to
follow that would allow the
company’s LNG proposal for
Freeport Harbour to “be seen

He said that Monaco’s
annual yacht show attracts
buyers from all over the

Over time, the Bahamas’
show could have a similar
impact, said Mr Bryant.

The jet show, he said, is an
added feature that enhances
the theme of luxury suggested
by the yachts.

The Tribune was invited by
the organisers of the show to
tour many of the boats and
jets on Friday. Ranging in
cost from $1 million to more‘
than $40 million, they feature
every possible amenity. for..
luxurious sailing, from sitk\

and upper deck barbecue pits

Mr Bryant said that unlike
at other mega shows, visitors. .
to the TYJS will be able to
have an up-close and person-
al tour of. the yachts without
enduring the long lines asso-
ciated with larger shows.

“Whether they are in the
market for a new yacht or jet
or just want to take a break
and peruse the offerings in a
relaxed tropical paradise, vis-
itors to the TYJS will find
what they are looking for,”
said Mr Bryant.

Bahamians who attend can
get a glimpse inside the luxu-
ry yachts, which will be
moored at the Hurricane
Hole Marina until Sunday.

In addition, a number of
cocktail parties, fashion shows
and other activities are
planned for the weekend.
There are also booths for
vacation and _ boating
services dotted along the

The jet show ends today at
5pm. The cost is $25 per day

Judicial review trial on
development is set for April 26

By KARIN HERIG
Tribune Staff Reporter

A DATE has been set for the judi-
cial review trial on Heads of Agree-
ment for the Guana Cay development.

The review, which will examine the
question of government’s authority to
enter into the controversial deal, will
begin on April 26.

Prime Minister Perry Christie, as
minister responsible for Crown Lands
and Wendal Major, as Secretary to
the National Economic Council, are
named as the respondents.

History

Lawyer for the Save Guana Cay

Reef Association (SGCRA) Fred

‘ Smith said that the review is the first of
its kind in the history of the Bahamas
to be granted on environmental
grounds.

Mr Smith yesterday reiterated that
the Association “is committed to chal-
lenging the central government’s
takeover of their island-culture life
and environment.”

“In particular, the Bahamian resi-
dents of Great Guana Cay are
shocked that the government should
be giving away 150 acres of Crown
Land to foreigners.

“Despite repeated demands for an
explanation from the government, it
has failed to account to the Bahamian
public about this Crown Land issue,”

he said.

Mr Smith pointed out that the min-
ister responsible for local government,
V Alfred Gray, has reaffirmed that
the government is committed to pro-
moting local government and encour-
aging Bahamians to fully participate in
the democratic process of local self-
governance.

“This is one of the big issues con-
cerning the residents of Great Guana
Cay. They consider that they have a
right to determine the future of their
island,” he said.

The association’s lawyer also said
that Mr Christie, proclaiming April
as ‘Coastal Awareness Month’, is
“pure hypocrisy on the part of the
prime minister.”

“On the one hand promoting

awareness for the sensitive coastal
environments, and on the other hand
giving away for free wet lands, beach-
es, and forests for destruction by for-
eign developers,” he said.

Preserve

Co-chairman of the SGCRA Troy
Albury added : “Government should
keep our Crown Land and preserve it
for Bahamians as a national park
under the National Trust. We do not
need to give away Crown Land to.a . ,{
foreign developer to ‘preserve’ for .
Bahamians. That is what the National
Trust is for!” Aw

The residents of Great Guana Cay
are opposing the $500 Passerine devel-
opment, which they claim will cause
irreversible damage to the island’s
environment and sentially fegube
their quality of life.

WORK on the New Providence Road Improvement Project
will begin as soon as the International Development Bank
approves the development strategy proposed by the Ministry of
Works, Deputy Director Khader Alikhan told The .Tribune

yesterday.

-- According to Mr Alikhan, attempts to secure the project’s
completion by just one firm have been so unsuccessful that
the’ Ministry of Works was prompted to take a different

approach.

Mr Alikhan said a proposal to divide the project into "vari-
ous slices," to be awarded to several local as well as international
contractors, has already been subjected to the IDB for its

approval.

The New Providence Road Improvement Project was due to
be completed in March, 2003: However, it was stalled in mid-
2001 when the UK based company Associated Asphalt went

bankrupt.

Associated Asphalt was awarded a $52.2 million contract in
early 2001 to construct some 19 corridors along 13.1 miles of
existing roads as well as improve 9.5 miles.

Ultimately

The contact was ultimately terminated in November, 2002,
and the Works Ministry sought another contractor to com-

plete the project.

Mr Alikhan noted that a five-month bidding period was
implemented between June and November, 2004, to award a
firm the contract to complete the project.

He also noted, however, that at the end of that period no bid
had been completed between the ministry and the only inter-
national contractor to qualify for the completion of the project,

Argentinian Jose Cartellone.

Due to these setbacks, Mr Alikhan said a proposal to divide

the project was ultimately devised.

“Once our strategy is approved by the IDB, we would then
proceed within the next month or two to seek both international
as well as local firms to work on the project,” he said.

The $5.2 million Harrold Road development project, sched-
uled for completion next month, was moved from the stalled
NPRIP and contracted to Bethels Trucking and Heavy Equip-
ment and Bahamas Hotmix in February, 2004.

WHEN a man strives for the top prize he must be careful |,
not to chop at shadows nor should he avoid shaking hands
with the truth. And so it was with Montagu MP Brent:
Symonette’s interview with The Tribune (March 30).

J... Lo illustrate. Hubert Ingraham’s decisiveness he erro-
neously said that when Hubert Ingraham found my actions

|‘Snappropriate”, he said “have your resignation: on my desk'{'

by 5pm or you are fired”.

He did not tell me to have my resignation on his desk by
5pm nor did he mention the word “fired”. He asked that both
Tennyson Well’s and my resignations to be delivered by

6pm.

In fact, the question still remains as to whether my resig- |

nation, which he had asked for, arrived at Government
House before or after Hubert Ingraham informed the Gov-
ernor General that he had decided to fire me. But that sto-. |

ry will be told at another date.

' Knowing the facts I must assume, therefore, that Mr.
Symonette was referring to his own demise as the chair-
man of the Airport Authority. Maybe Mr. Symonette,
who IJ understand was balking at resigning, was told by the
former Prime Minister to have his resignation in by 5pm or

be fired.

It was inappropriate when Mr. Symonette decided to do
business with a company in which he was a shareholder:
He should have known better. This was beyond a shadow of

a doubt inappropriate.

When I became Minister of Agriculture and Fisheries
my first instruction to the Permanent Secretary was to advise
the staff that no transactions by that Ministry were to be car-
ried out with Executive Printers because I was a sharehold-
er in that company. I did the same thing when I transferred

Ministries.

This avoided the charge of “conflict of interest” ever
being levelled at me, as was levelled at Mr. Symonette.
Mr. Symonette would be well advised to take that advice.

COB closes $3.2m_
property deal

@ By KILAH ROLLE
Tribune Staff Reporter

THE College of the
Bahamas yesterday closed a
$3.2 million deal for a
Thompson Blvd commercial
property near the Oakes
Field campus.

College officials say it is
the first in a series of upcom-
ing real estate purchases for
an expansion which it is
hoped will lead to the goal
of university status.

The 40,000 square-foot
property, which formally
housed the Passport Office,
the Criminal Detective Unit
and the Ministry of Housing
-and Social Services, will
undergo renovations costing
four million dollars before
opening it’s doors to the col-
lege community.

COB president Dr Rodney
Smith said the two-story
complex is the first asset that
COB holds in its own name,
with all other college prop-
erties owned by the
Bahamas Treasury.

Schools

He said that once refur-
bished, the building will
accommodate the schools of
social sciences and educa-
tion; a university bookstore
and business centre; a cafe;
lecture rooms and theatres;
the office of graduate stud-
ies; a full service business
centre; a 40-foot boardroom
and “edu-tech” rooms.

Dr Smith said that by the
fall semester, he expects the
building to be occupied by
faculty and some graduate
students. This, he said will
go a long way to “freeing up
much needed space for a
growing institution.”

Chairman of COB
Franklyn Wilson said the

Mr Wilson said that COB

plans to purchase additional }
property in the Thompson :
Blvd area, along with 100 :
acres of property on Glad- :

stone Road.

“This in no way limits our ;
broader vision for the Uni- :
versity of the Bahamas,” Mr }
Wilson continued, “we still

see that as a multi-campus

university and this is simply
one of several throughout :

the Bahamian islands.”
According to Mr Wilson,

the college is presently
undergoing a period of

"assessment and renewal".

"This process will not be :
easy," Mr Wilson said. "But :
at the end of the day the col- }
lege is going to be our Uni- }

versity of The Bahamas.”

Call for legislation

against graffiti

MP hits out
at vandalism

By KARIN HERIG
Tribune Staff Reporter |

CARMICHAEL MP John
Carey said he is concerned about
the amount of vandalism in his
constituency and has called for
anti-graffiti legislation.

Mr Carey, parliamentary sec-
retary in the Ministry of Works
and Utilities, said his constituen-
cy has “a serious problem with
persons defacing public and pri-
vate properties with paint and
spray cans.”

He said: “Over the past few
years, there has been a concerted
effort by persons in our commu-
nities who exhibit anti-social



























shopping centre. This com-
pletely strangles the traffic and





behaviour in the form of graffiti
to deface properties.”

“It is totally unacceptable and
many residents have come to me
to complain about the graffiti and
asked that I do something about
it,” he said.

The MP said that when driving

throughout Nassau, “one would ~

find any number of walls, build-
ings and locations with graffiti on
it. Phd

“This demonstrates that we
have a serious problem on our
island. To a lesser extent this
problem exists in some of the
Family Islands.

“However, if the Bahamas is
to succeed it will have to engage a
more rigid approach to dealing
with certain anti-social behaviour

as it adversely impacts our sur- |

roundings and environment,” he
said.
Mr Carey said that the anti-

- graffiti campaigns in the past have

not been enough, and that it may
be appropriate to introduce anti-
graffiti legislation, which “specif-
ically speaks to the consequences
as a result of violating our beau-
tiful surroundings.” .

“There are too many instances
throughout the city of Nassau
where graffiti is evident. Bahami-
ans must not be tolerant of slack-
ness and unsightly areas that can
be corrected and prevented. Graf-
fiti sends the wrong message to
our citizens.

“It sends the message that it
doesn’t matter how our sur-
roundings look and that criminals
and their evil ways are welcome,”
he said.

Mr Carey has encouraged all



from people who are’
making news in their
neighbourhoods. Perhaps
you are raising funds for a
good cause, campaigning
for improvements in the
area or have won an

THE TRIBUNE :



orum recommends more

teachers to reduce school viol

@ By CARA BRENNEN
Tribune Staff Reporter

INCREASING the number
of male teachers in the school
system can reduce violence
among students said the
Bahamian Forum following it’s
debate on public education
earlier this month. —

During the discussion, it was
revealed that a local gang is
trying to infiltrate primary
schools.

On April 6, the local think-
_tank hosted a discussion enti-
tled: “Public education: a ser-
vice or disservice to Bahamian
development.”

Meetings

The meeting featured for-
mer principal EJ Bowe, for-
mer teacher Julia Barnwell;
and Cassandra Davenport, the
Bahamian Forum’s executive
committee and lead researcher.

Mr Bowe, who has been an
educator for some 30 years,
said that over the past two
decades, “successive govern-

ments have pushed or caused _ -

many male teachers to exit the

public school system where -

“We all know that more

male models are needed in the ©

primary, junior and senior high
schools. The constant bashing
of the men must cease and fur-
ther, the system must stop
overlooking them when they
are in line and deserving of
promotions.”

Mrs Davenport noted that

over the past several years
~ school violence has escalated

to the point that police are
needed in some schools to
maintain peace.

She pointed out that young

people are often faced with sit-
uations that lead them to

become violent.

“There is a talk of a vicious

gang attempting to penetrate
the primary schools in our
country recruiting members by
using bullying tactics, violating
our young girls, threatening the

Mrs Davenport said that
while no one is questioning the
ability of female teachers to
perform as head mistresses,
women as principals may not

’ be able to cope with the par-

ticular problem of violence as it
exists today.

Research ~~

According to Mrs Daven-
port, more research needs to
be done to on the background
of students and a determined
effort must be made to find out
if they suffer any abuse at
home. .

She said verbal abuse of
young boys by women is com-
monplace and sexual abuse of
young girls is endemic.

Mr Bowe noted that good

’ manners and behavior must

come first in any school.
“Students must have self-
respect and respect for others

and other people’s properties.”

He said an orderly class is cer-
tain to receive more tutoring
than a disruptive one.

In addition, he said more

’ extra-curriculum activities need

to be introduced so that stu-
dents can have “down time”,
but at the same time be kept
busy.

Bishop Hall, who is pastor

Bahamians.”

almost at the exclusion of
everything else, and tragical-
ly, this thinking prevails in
our schools,” he said.

Bishop Hall called for strict
measures to be put in place
“to raise our schools to fields
of learning, rather than fields
of violence.”

In making a comparison
between the Bahamas in the
50’s and 60’s and the country
today, the Bishop said that
education was once the fore-
most tool for positive
progress and community
development, especially for
the masses.

He said the Bahamas is
now becoming an “anti-intel-
lectual Junkanoo society”,
where ignorance is reward-
ed and a lack of interest or
concern “holds sway over
much of our culture.”

national consciousness

Bishop Hall said that edu-
cational exercises such as
drama, intelligent dialogue,
and reading do not receive
public support, while support
for proms and parties is
strong.

Money

He pointed out that the
money spent on these events
and on the latest parapher-
nalia outweighs the money
spent on text books and sup-
port for parent teacher asso-
ciations.

“Adding to our dilemma
is the tragedy in the Bahami-
an Church in which
ignorance is sanctified and
foolishness is used to cater’
to the whims and wishes-
of the crowd,” said Bishop |
Hall.

SATURDAY, APRIL 16, 2005, PAGE 7





@ By KILAH ROLLE
Tribune Staff Reporter

GOVERNMENT has been
asked for $50,000 to help man-
age the public transportation
system.

Reuben Rahming, president
of the Public Transportation
Association (PTA), said gov-
ernment has never invested in
the system, even though there
are currently hundreds of bus
franchises in operation.

Mr Rahming critised the gov-
ernment for raising fees for
these franchises, and said the
small businesses seem to be
under attack.

"We represent the largest
conglomerate of businesses and
franchise’ owners under one
umbrella," he said, "averaging
more than 250 small businesses,
and what money has any gov-
ernment invested into this?"

According to Mr Rahming,
the PTA is attempting to
revamp the negaiive perception
of jitneys, and change their sta-
tus to that of a vital entity.

Intelligent

"We represent intelligent
individuals," he said, "there are
many doctors, lawyers, and oth-
er professionals who actually
own these franchises. We are
on, our way to completing our
co-operative structure and our
approach is nationalistic, we
cannot operate such a vital enti-
ty ina vacuum."

The proposal submitted to
the government, nicknamed
“Operation Slow Down”, aims
to cut down on the reckless dri-
ving or the "rat race" many dri-
vers compete in on the road, he
said.

"We can, within two weeks,
cause every bus to proceed on
their routes without ever
exceeding the speed limit,” Mr
Rahming claimed.

“This may not answer all
questions but :it will definitely

put a:good dent into some of :

the problems going on today."

Mr Rahming said that there
seems to be a myth that jitneys
are the main contributors to the
traffic congestion in New Prov-
idence.

"This is not the case," he said,
"the reality is that the high vol-
ume of cars is the problem, not
the jitneys."

According to Mr Rahming,
both the number of vehicles and
the general level of vehicle qual-
ity contribute to congestion and
harm the environment. He said
that he is taking proactive steps
to address these problems with-
in his association.

"We can put a significant
dent in the environmental
degradation that is occurring
because of the massive amount
of cars, by starting with improv-
ing our own systems," he said.

Mr Rahming said the associ-
ation is working with a private

‘entity to put in place "ahead of

any governmental regulations,"
an emissions testing system
which will be mandatory for all
their members.

Importance of displaying
an attitude of gratitude

Fre some five years,
mostly in the early
1970s, we were employed in
the personnel department of
Resorts International on Par-
adise Island, having manage-
ment responsibility for train-
ing during the latter period of
our stay with that large com-
pany. It was an experience
that taught us many valuable
lessons, and they have boded
us well ever since.

During that time, we dis- -

covered that the best workers
are not always found in the
management echelon — or
even at the clerical level, for
that matter. Sometimes, they
are more often found among
those who occupy the lower
ranks of the staff totem pole.
Thus, we were pleased that
the company not only recog-
nised this fact, but also con-
sistently rewarded excellence,
irrespective of its employee’s
rank, by demonstrating its
appreciation for the same via
many tangible expressions of
gratitude.

While this wholesome trend
has continued throughout the
local hotel industry, it remains
the exception rather than the
rule in far too many other

offered the following admo-
nition: “We must learn to
develop an attitude of grati-
tude.” Spoken in his crisp
Palmetto Point, Eleuthera,
accent, the letter ‘h’ always
preceded the letter ‘a’ in atti-
tude, seemingly as if for
emphasis.

Bee time we heard
that admonition, wé
never failed to reflect upon
the discrimination meted out
to deserving workers at the
lower employment level in this
country, and that reflection
only served to accentuate the
profoundness of Mr Bethel’s
serious advice. Thus, it was
our pleasure last weekend to
attend an event that so mag-
nificently depicted the impor-
tance of displaying an attitude
of gratitude, especially to one
such worker who had given
long and exemplary service to
his employer.

We refer to the farewell

areas of employment, howev-
er. There, through blatant sta-
tus discrimination in the staff
structure, the best performers
at the lower levels are rarely
afforded any public recogni-
tion for their contribution to
their respective company’s
success, let alone given any
tangible expression of grati-
tude for the same.Such hon-
ours seem always to be
reserved for those in the upper
levels of employment.

reception given by the Antiq-
uities, Monuments and Muse-
ums Corporation (AMMC) in
honour and appreciation of
Mr Rufus George Johnson. A
retiring tour guide at Fort
Charlotte, he had faithfully
performed as such at that his-
torical site for almost a half
century — having commenced
his exemplary service long
before either the AMMC or
even the Department of
Archives had been estab-
lished.

Mr Johnson was born on
February 21, 1940, at Little
Harbour, in the Berry Islands.

In January, 1958, he com-

menced his Public Service
employment with the Devel-
opment Board, of which the



MACKEY

late Sir Stafford Sands was .-

chairman. The Development
Board was then located in a
small wooden building in
Rawson Square. The board,
which later moved to new

offices at the Carlton House in ©

East Street, eventually
became the Ministry of
Tourism in, 1964, when inter-
nal self-government (Cabinet-
style) was accorded The
Bahamas, then a British
colony.

The event was held appro-

priately in the moat area of
the fort, under decorative
white tents, and with old-fash-
ioned kerosene lamps on each
table. The staff at the fort had

done a remarkable job at |

making the scene befitting the

occasion, all in appreciation |

of their retiring colleague’s

comradeship, exemplary

deportment, and willingness

to impart his narrative skills .
to them over the years. The ®

AMMC proposes to offer the
fort to facilitate weddings par-
ties and similar functions in
that historic and yet generally
secure setting.

sentation of AMMC.

staff, joining Mr Johnson on
this special evening were his
wife, family members and oth-
er well-wishers. Included
among the latter was the Rev-
erend Fr Michael Kelly, the
rector of his beloved Our
Lady’s Roman Catholic

» Church, who gave the invoca-

Z

‘tion. Master of ceremonies for

the occasion Was his faithful
protégé Mr Byron Trotman,
himself an outstanding tour
guide at Fort Charlotte. The
evening’s only damper was the
absence of Mr Johnson’s long-
time friend and fellow tour
guide, the late Mr Wenzel Git-
tens, who died three years ago.
During the reception, a tape
recording of one of Mr John-
son’s guided tours was played
over the sound system. It pre-
sented him at his best, while
giving a detailed account of
the fort to one of the many
thousands of visitor groups he
was privileged to escort
through that historical site.
Given the ease with which
Mr Johnson came over that
tape performing his task, one
can safely imagine that, if
awoken at midnight, he could
readily give an encore with-

out omitting the minutest
detail.

One of the highlights of the
evening was a moving tribute
to Mr Johnson by Dr Keith
Tinker, the AMMC’s manag-
ing director, for his long and
exemplary service to that cor-
poration and the other gov-
ernment agencies that were
previously entrusted with the

shirking from a challenge. He
is truly an ambassador of
goodwill for the corporation,
ever willing to assist wherever
he can.”

Continuing, Dr Tinker
added: “His knowledge of the
fort extends beyond this his-
toric site to world affairs. Mr
Johnson is indeed a Bahamian
hero of distinction.” Dr Tinker



“One of the highlights of the
evening was a moving tribute

responsibility for our coun-
try’s historical sites.

“In his remarks, Dr Tinker,
among other sentiments, com-
mented thus:

“Mr Johnson is the essence
of humility and professional-
ism. He has always presented
himself with dignity, never

concluded his tribute by
declaring Mr Johnson the
AMMC?’s tour guide emeritus,

The young and talented
Osano Neely interspersed the

to Mr Johnson and a bouquet
of flowers to Mrs Johnson by

Mr Trotman, Miss Althea.

Smith and Miss Lavette Col-
lie, respectfully, with his trib-
ute in songs. In so doing, he
treated all in attendance with
beautiful renditions of two
lovely songs that were most
appropriate for the occasion.

Afterwards, Mr Johnson, in
expressing his gratitude to all,
admonished his former col-
leagues to always give their
best in attempting to maintain
the high standard of service
that he had imparted to them
by instruction and example
over the years.

All things considered, it was
truly a delightful occasion, one
that was totally enjoyed by Mr
Johnson’s family, his friends
and colleagues. A glow of sat-
isfaction and hope radiated
from the faces of the latter
group, as they seemingly envi-
sioned a similar display of that
attitude of gratitude when
their respective retirement

‘times roll around. Finally, in

conveying our congratulations
to Mr Johnson, we pray that
God will continue to bless him
with good health, thereby
enabling him to fully enjoy his
retirement years.

During an explosive meeting
on Cat Cay last month, Keod
Smith reportedly chose to sit
with LNG protester, investor
Manuel Diaz, instead of the
government contingent led by
Trade and Industry Minister
Leslie Miller.

Written on December 22,
2004, the letter refers to a meet-

December 21, with Jim Ebling,
Tractebel’s vice-president of
business development, with Dr
Doswell Coakley, and Mr Gre-

attempted to silence a member
of the BEST Commission from
making a presentation in Cat
Cay that was favourable to the
AES project planned for Ocean
Cay. ©

A letter to Dr Ronald Coop-
er by Keod Smith said that the
latter was “shocked” to learn
of Dr Cooper’s intended pre-
sentation to Cat Cay residents
without his knowledge or
approval.

The letter read: “You are not
permitted or otherwise allowed
to discuss any matter which is
being governed by the BEST
Commission. _

“This is to include but not be
limited to any of the LNG
pipeline proposals.”

However, in the second letter,
sent by Mr Smith to Tractebel’s
lawyer, point number four of
the recommendation reads:
“Address socio-economic

However, Mr Gibson said the matter is before

with directly under the auspices of Prime Min-
ister Perry Christie.

“J am sure that whatever sale.occurs the
Bahamian people’s revenues would be given
‘to the Treasury,” said Mr Gibson.

Each casino is required to pay into the Trea-
sury on winnings of up to $20 million, a mini-
mum of $4.3 million.

However, Mr Gibson pointed out that the
gaming board does not collect taxes.

“The. Public Treasury is the only statutory
authority that has the power to collect gaming
taxes. We have no power to collect taxes or
force people to pay their taxes. The only power
we have is to,revoke licences for the breach of
regulations,” he said.

Alvin Smith said he was
shocked by this letter because
an ambassador to the environ-

company how to proceed if they
wanted his blessing. Had he
done it with all the companies
involved “the perception may
not be as it is now,” he added.

He questioned why the BEST

Security departments.
The new policy required
_all US citizens and foreigners
visiting the Bahamas,
Caribbean countries, Central
and South America, and re-
entering the US to present a
valid passport as of January
1, 2006.

The rule was also proposed
for Canada and Mexico,
which were to be given until
January 1, 2008, to comply
with the new requirements.

The Bahamas, in addition
to other countries in the
region, said it feared the
implementation date would
not give the tourism indus-

try sufficient time to adjust-

to the change and would ulti-
mately have a detrimental
impact on visitor arrivals.
President Bush said he was
concerned this new policy
could hinder the flow of traf-
fic between the US and oth-

er countries mentioned in
the new rule.

“If people have to have.a
passport, it’s going to disrupt
the honest flow of traffic..I
think there’s some flexibility
in the law, and that’s what
we’re checking out right
now. -

“I thought there was a bet-
ter way to expedite the legal
flow of traffic and people,”
he said.

The US president said he
has now ordered a review of ,

the rules.

Earlier this week, tourism
officials told The Tribune
that the period until Decem-
ber was insufficient to devel-
opment an awareness of the
new policy within the indus-

Through all of the rough times
and the challenges, tonight is tes-
tament that despite, we have
made it over.

“T would like to personally con-
gratulate COBUS 2004-2005 for a

ithe New Providence Softball
Association for the first time
in more than a decade, said
he had a difficult decision to
‘make against the loaded
Truckers’ line-up, but he was
‘prepared to deal with them
one by one.

“The only thing that was
going on in my mind was to
‘strike out as many of them as

I could,” he insisted. “Unfor-
tunately, we had too many
passed balls that hurt us.”

Bethel, who vowed to turn
the tables on the Truckers in
their next game, was working
on a.no-hit shut-out with a
two-run lead going into the
sixth inning.

But after Adrian Hutchin-
son survived a strike out on a
passed ball, he managed to
scramble around the bases
and broke the ice for the
Truckers on another passed
ball from catcher Tommy
‘Bucker T’ Ferguson.

Then Wood officially greet-
ed Bethel back in the league

OrPRPNNA



with a one-out solo home run
‘that tied the scored at 2-2.

It went down to the extra
inning and the Dorcy Park
Boyz were the first to take
advantage of the Internation-
al Softball Federation’s tie-

breaking rule that calls for the ©

final out in the last inning to
go to second base.

But in their half of the
frame, Hutchinson once again
scored to tie the game on
speedy Van ‘Lil Joe’ John-
son’s RBI triple.

* Johnson then tried to score,
but was thrown out at the
plate.

Wood eventually was put



on base with an intentional |
walk. As was Stephen ‘Slug- ©
ger’ Brown and Jamal ‘Sarge’

Johnson to load the bases for
Winston Seymour.
But Electro Telecom didn’ t

have a catcher that could hold;
- onto Bethel’s hard throwing

pitches...

Mario Ford, ‘who had
switched from short to catch
for starter Mardoche Simon
from the third inning, allowed
a pitch to get away from him
as Wood scooted home with
the game winner.

Wood said they had some-
thing special for Bethel since
he decided to come on their
territory.

“He then been to all of the
islands, except Long Island to
pitch,” "Wood noted. “But we
want him to know that since
he’s here, it’s going to feel
good watching him in the
stands watching the round
robin.”

Bethel took exception to the
remarks, saying that this was
just his first game back.

“If we had a good catcher
tonight, we would have come

out on top,” Bethel declared.
“They got one or two runs on |,

strike outs that the catcher
couldn’t hold onto.

“Only Tougie Wood got a
homer to right field. But come

next game, when we play them
again, it will be a different
game. We will have a catch-
er.”

Bethel indicated that he’s
expecting to bring imhis older
brother Edmund ‘Binks’
Bethel from Eleuthera to

. catch for him.

While the Truckers wait,
Wood said they will enjoy the
win. He was even more elated
about hitting the homer.

Pitcher

“He was looking good the
whole game. He was having a
lot of strike outs,” said Wood
of Bethel. “But the problem
with the Truckers is we

_haven’t seen a fast-pitching

pitcher like him since last year.

“So I was just waiting on
that nice fat riser and once I
hit it, I knew it was gone.”

Ford admitted that their
catching hurt them more than
anything else. .

“I was hoping the catcher
would have been able to hold
the balls, but the ball was get-
ting there much quicker than

- he had anticipated,” Ford said.

“Once we work on the
catching area, we will be right
there battling with them for
the league’s title.”

Ford said they only wanted



Truckers

ampions



to prove a point to the Truck-
ers.

“They were bigging up
themselves saying that they
were going to stop us in three
innings,” he said.

“But they can’t stop this
team in three. We took them
to eight innings. If they want
to beat this team, they should
have beat us long time. We’re
a young team, inexperienced,
but we’re here to have fun
with them.” |

Wood ended up with a 1-
for-3 night with an, RBI and
two runs scored and Van
Johnson was 1-for-4 to lead
the Truckers. Terrance Cul-
mer came in relief of Leroy
Thompson to pitch in the
eighth for the win.

Thompson gave up five hits
and struck out 12, including
the side in both the fifth and
seventh as he went head-to-
head with Bethel.

Bethel went the distance fir-
ing a three hitter, striking out
16 batters in the loss. He
struck out three in the third
(one on a passed ball) and
four in both the fifth and sixth
(on one and two passed balls
respectively).

He also helped his own
cause going 2-for-4 with a run
and Andy Ford was 1-for-4
with a run as well.

Christine has a swinging time
as the DHL Brackettes win

@ By BRENT STUBBS
Senior Sports Reporter

VETERAN infielder Chris-
tine Saunders found herself in
the ideal batter’s situation on
Thursday night at the Churchill
Tener Knowles National Soft-
ball Stadium.

Her DHL Brackettes were
trailing the Proper Care Pool
ladies’ team 8-5 with two out
and the bases loaded in the bot-
tom of the seventh inning.

In her at-bat, Saunders ripped
a shot to right-centrefield, clear-
ing the bases on an in-the-park
home run to lift the Brackettes
to a 10-8 come-from-behind vic-
tory.

Runs)

“All I wanted to do was score
the runs home so we could win
the game,” said Saunders as the
victory kept DHL in fourth
place in the New Providence
Softball Association’s standings
at 2-3.

“We started off slow scoring
runs and we were struggling.
But with the last at-bat, all I
was thinking about was hitting
the ball and advancing the run-
ners.” \

Saunders’ game winning hit
came after Evia Knowles, pinch
running for her mother, Oria

The even will begin

8.00am.

The format will bea
“two persons scram-
ble”.

Prizes will be award-
ed to the first gross
winner; net winners of
first; second and third
places. Prizes will also
be awarded for the
longest drive for
ladies, men and
juniors.

The tournament is
intended to attract the
entire golfing commu-
nity within the
Bahamas - golfers of
yesteryear and those
still actively involved
in the game, along with
Ken’s friends from
abroad.

The presentation and
honouring luncheon
will follow immediately
after the tournament
where non-golfers,
family members,
friends and parish-
ioners of Ken’s will
join in for “a special
tribute”.

Beach Golf Course, or

cy@batelnet.bs
(Agatha Delancy -

“Big O” Wood (who led off the
rally with a double), scored on
Lilly McDonald’s one-our run-
producing single.

After McDonald’s single, Ali-
cia Rahming singled and Dor-
nell Butler walked to load the
bases for Saunders.

Losing pitcher Sherry Beneby
said she had one bad inning and
it turned out to be the down-
fall of the Proper Care, who suf-
fered their second straight
defeat.

“Just that one hitting when
they hit the ball,” Beneby
stressed. “I tried to catch the
pitch. I tried to keep the ball
up, but I went down and she
just hit the ball.”

Saunders said it was good to
be the heroine.

“It feels good to see how we
came back from behind and win
the game,” Saunders stressed.
“We’re going some place this
year. We’re going to be a force
in the playoffs.

“We have the team and we
have the pitching. With Ernes-
tine (Stubbs) back on the
mound, we’re a lot better than

- we were last year. We’re going

someplace this year.”
Proper Care, a fragmented

team from last year’s rookie’

runners-up Degeo Bommers,
lost their second straight game,
but Beneby said they’re not

pushing the panic button yet.

“We’re not worrying about
it. When it comes to the end of
the season, we will be right
there,” she summed up.

@ e
Driving

Saunders led DHL’s offen-
sive attack with a 2-for-4 night,
driving in five runs and scoring
once. Wood was 2-for-4 with an
RBI, while McDonald and Rah-
ming were both 2-for-4 with a
RBI and two runs scored.

Stubbs went the distance toss-
ing an 11-hitter, striking out sev-
en to out-duel Beneby, who
gave up 10 hits on five strike
outs.

Stephanie Goodridge was 3-
for-4 with three runs; Vonette
Nairn 1-for-4 with two RBIs
and a run; former Brackettes’
catcher Debbie McClure 2-for-

2 with a RBI and run and Bene-

by helped her own cause going
2-for-4 with a RBI and run
scored.

@ TONIGHT, the battle of
the undefeated will take place at
the stadium as the defending
champions Electro Telecom
Wildcats and the Randella’s

Swingers clash in the feature

contest at 8.30pm.
Both are going into the game
tied for first place at 3-0.
