Group claims they

were fired after

eing told to train
younger staff

‘By PAULG

TURNQUEST
and TIFFANY GRANT
Tribune Staff Reporters

TWENTY security officers at

-the WEMCO Security and
: Credit Collections Limited were

: unexpectedly laid off yesterday.

Under the guise of a staff

‘meeting, employees said they
‘were told to report to the

- Collins Avenue office at 1lam
- when they were handed letters

informing them that their posi-
tions had been made redundant

‘due to the company’s present
financial circumstances.

Now a group of officers claim

they were fired by the company
‘after being told to train a
: younger (cheaper) staff.

“But now I don’t have a job.

We were the ones who helped
: them get a steady footing and

now they using that same foot

: to’kick us out,” said Leanamae
' Clare, a security officer who had
‘ been with the company for five
- years.

Ms Clare and about nine oth-

_ er officers demonstrated out-.

side the company’s office yes-

- terday shortly following the ter-

minations.

Said Lythera Roach, a secu-

. rity officer who had been with

*

the company for more than
:‘ three years: “We thought that

es ‘ we would be relocated but they

just gave us these letters say-
ing, ‘here this will explain it’,
and that was it.

“They said it was based on
low performance and poor ser-
vice. But how can that be when
I was just awarded last year for
my good performance, and then
this year I got sick so they cut

me? Why don’t they just tell the |

truth — that they need to down-
size because they lost some con-
tracts.”

Speaking from his car as he
left the office, WEMCO gener-
al manager Paul Thompson said
the company had no choice but

to reduce its staff because it lost -

a large portion of a major con-
tract.

“Up to the last minute we

were trying to see if we could
have found a way where we
could keep (the. officers), but
that isn’t possible. They said the
best thing to do was to make
them redundant.

“Instead of a verbal notice
they are paying them, which the
law said we can do,” explained
Mr Thompson.

The officers were given let-
ters instructing them to turn in
their uniforms and to discuss
their payment with the finan-
cial officer, Mr Thompson
added.

(Photo: Mario ‘Duncanson/Tribune staff)

THE highly udiespated Marina Vil-
lage at Atlantis on Paradise Island
opened for its first day of business yes-
terday.

The 65,000 square foot development,
situated at the eastern end of the exist-
ing Marina at Atlantis, has five restau-

rants, 21 retail outlets, and a collection -

of carts that showcase the artistry of the
Bahamas.

Sol Kerzner, chairman of Kerzner
International and the “master architect”
behind the Marina Village, toured the
development with senior officials of
Kerzner International yesterday.

“It’s even nicer than I anticipated. I
think it is really super, obviously today
is day one... We are looking good and
we are opening one restaurant almost
every day, and they (the restaurants)

are looking pretty exciting. I think we"
have a great variety of restaurants.
here...people seem to be very happy

and excited and I am very pleased,” said
Mr Kerzner.

Speaking of ‘the restaurants,
Carmine’s, a popular New York eatery
known for its Italian dishes, is one of
the exciting features at the Marina Vil-
lage. The team of Atlantis chefs and
restaurant managers who will operate
the branch on Paradise Island recently
travelled to Manhattan where they
received extensive training at two of the
city’s locations.

. Carmine’s at the Marina Village is
the first international branch of the
restaurant.

Bimini

Road, which features:

‘ment against a brightly-coloured back-

drop; Café Martinique, featuring the
gourmet cuisine of French chef, Jean-
Georges Vongerichten; Seafire Steak-
house, featuring seared and grilled fare;
and Johnny Rockets, a hamburger chain
that serves some 22 million hamburgers
per year to its patrons worldwide, make
up the many dining possibilities at the
Marina Village.

While Seafire Steakhouse and Johnny
Rockets opened their doors to the pub-
lic yesterday, Carmine’s opens official-
ly on Tuesday, July 19; Café Martinique,
on Friday, July 29; and Bimini Road,
on Monday, August 1.

tious breads.

The Marina Village is an open-
air marketplace with three main
plazas that are designed to resem-
ble a “quaint” Bahamian settle-
ment.

It is open to the general public
and promises to provide busi-
nesses with excellent sales oppor-
tunities as thousands of cruise
ship visitors will pass through the
Marina to get to the Atlantis
Resort.

Not only will the development
attract Atlantis’ guests, but it is
expected to be a must-see attrac-
tion for all tourists to the country,
even those who do not stay on
Paradise Island.

With big names like Starbucks,
the world famous coffee shop —
for now, the only branch of its
kind in the Bahamas — locals are
sure to be attracted to the Marina
Village. (Starbucks International
is in negotiations with Coffee Cay
Limited, a Bahamian company,
about the latter becoming the
official licensee for the company
in this nation). .

Taking it all in at one glance,
the Marina Village can be
described as a one-stop haven,
as it features a variety of outlets
that provide a broad shopping
and entertainment experience —
arguably unlike anything else in
the Caribbean.

A La Plage, a contemporary
family boutique, carries fashion
lines such as Aqua de Coco, Rygy
and Lenny. Pirana Joe
Resortwear, a fun family shop-
ping experience offers the latest
lines in high quality clothing
designed for the comfort of hotel
guests who will spend a great
portion of their stay touring
the hotels and sites around the
island.

Park Lane Jewellers, known
for antique jewellery, vintage-
style accessories and distinctive
collectables; John Bull; The

Emeralds International join the
line-up of jewellery outlets at the

While international themes are
very much a part of what the
Marina Village offers, giving
guests a taste of the Bahamas has
not been ignored.

Boasting handsome souvenir
and fashion merchandise that
showcase the talents of Bahami-

@ By KARIN HERIG
Tribune Staff Reporter

THE resolution of the months-long
debacle in the Department of the Reg-
istrar General constitutes a “incremen-
tal victory for good governance,” former
Registrar General Elizabeth Thomp-
son said yesterday.

Speaking with the media at the offices
of her lawyer Milton Evans, Ms Thomp-
son said she feels that the country has
“democratically grown” because of the
outcome of the dispute.

As reported by The Tribune, Ms
Thompson tendered her resignation
from the post of Registrar General at
3pm on Thursday after her lawyers
came to an agreement with government
regarding the terms of the financial set-
tlement.

Settlement

Ms Thompson yesterday reiterated
that she did not wish to discuss the “dol-
lars and cents” aspect of the settlement
agreement. She said she was satisfied
with the remuneration she has received.

“T’m a lot better off today then I was
yesterday,” she said.

The former Registrar General was
fired from her post by the Judicial and

. Legal Services Commission (JLSC) in
January of this year.

- However, this decision. was over-:
turned by Supreme Court Justice Hugh
Small, who determined that Ms Thomp-
son was wrongfully terminated. He lat-
er upheld the decision when govern-

Thompson should be awarded damages
and other costs.

Mr Evans yesterday expressed his
regret over the fact that it took the gov-
ernment six weeks to comply with the
court order.

“What began as an interesting legal
matter turned into a very emotional, -
turbulent, and unnecessarily protracted
matter. One disappointment that I have
is that this matter that could have been
resolved within a week, ended up taking
six weeks, but I’m very glad about the
result,” he said.

Mr Evans explained that one of the
difficulties about the case of Ms Thomp-
son was that Justice Small made a spe-
cific finding, but gave no directions.

“He (Justice Small) explained that
once (he) indicated what the law is, (he)
expected that it will be carried out, and”
those who know what they should do,
will do what they ought to do,” Mr
Evans said. .

The lawyer said. that he hopes this
case has the effect of “letting citizens
know that you. have a right to get what
is due to you, not asking for anything
beyond that.”

“That what justice is about, that is
what society is about,” he noted.

Ms Thompson explained that in tak-
ing on the government she risked her
home and the ability to provide’ for her
four sons.

HURRICANE Emily has cut a
path of destruction through Grana-
da and is now threatening to make
landfall in Jamaica.

After gaining enough strength to
become a category four hurricane,
Emily slammed into Grenada mow-
ing down homes and buildings
across the island.

Grenada, which is still recovering
from Hurricane Ivan last year,
received a direct hit from Emily
Thursday afternoon.

At least one person has died on
that island, as the storm caused
extensive flooding and mudslides.

Last year Grenada lost thousands
of homes to Ivan and suffered mil-
lions of dollars worth of damage.

The eye of the storm is predicted
to pass across the southern part of
Jamaica sometime today.



Emily is expected to douse the
island with heavy rains that could
lead to extensive flooding and land-
slides.

Emily, which has now weakened
to a category three hurricane, is the
second storm to achieve hurricane
status this season.

working. The CDR feels that
the failure of Local. Govern-
ment is due in part to the polit-
ical agenda of the FNM who
had introduced it and the PLP
government that is now charged
with the responsibility of main-
taining it. Also, New Providence
where two thirds of the popula-
tion resides should be included
as well. Considering the fact
that the CDR is also a political
party, one can only speculate
as to the motive of their press
release criticising Local Gov-

.. ernment.
..... AS a little-boy growing up in

Acklins, I was aware of the fact
that local government was
defined as the periodic visit of
an Out Island Commissioner.
‘Sometimes these visits could be
just once a month or longer as
the Commissioner had other
jurisdictions and islands to look
after. During such a visit, the
business of government was
conducted, with the Commis-
sioner providing everything

from old age. pension. to-pay--
“ments for public works such as

weeding the graveyard or fix-
ing the roads. Basically, the
Commissioner was dispatched
from the nation’s capital of Nas-
sau with an assigned task and
specific directives as to how he
was to conduct his business. He
was accountable, not.to the
local population that he was

“serving, but. to his boss, the :
_ Department of Local Govern-

ment, which later became the
Ministry of Local Government.
With little discretion to deviate
from his directives, the Com-
missioner had little authority to
assist locals outside the scope
of his duties unless he took his
own personal initiative to assist
in a particular matter.

To further complicate mat-
ters, the Member of Parliament

for an Out Island constituency...
"had vested in him the authority
“to veto any licence application

for business, taxi plates, gov-
ernment jobs, etc.

Oftentimes, as has been doc-
umented so often in the media,
for your application to succeed,
you had to be in the good grace
of the MP. This created an abu-
sive system of political patron-
age, nepotism, corruption and
outright victimisation. To be
successful with your application,
you literally had to kiss the ring
(or the backside) of the MP.

This system was clearly evil
and unjust. In addition, it did
not take into account the con-

cerns of the people most affect-
ed by such policies, the locals.
That’s why one of the promises
that a newly elected PLP gov-
ernment after Majority Rule on
January 10, 1967 had promised
was to implement a proper sys-
tem of local government. To
this end, in 1969, the PLP gov-
ernment of the day produced a
green paper for public discus-

. sion as how to implement a sys-

tem of local government.
Regrettably, for the next twen-
ty-three years, the PLP govern-
ment of the day placed the issue
of the implementation of a true
system of local government on
the back burner.

__ Finally, in 1996, under. the .
FNM government, a system of

local government was imple-
mented. Under this scheme,
those responsible for adminis-
tering local government had to
be locally elected. Not, only
were they to be directly respon-

sible to those who had elected

them, but to be a candidate for

Local Government, one had to:

reside and be registered to vote
in that constituency. Unlike the
Member of Parliament who

could reside in Nassau or else- '
--where and be unavailable to his ~

constituents or simply just
“ducking” them, the elected
Local Government official by
residing in his constituency was
available 24/7 to the public.
Furthermore, such individuals
should have been elected on the
fact that they were caring and

-concerned individuals of that
community. Therefore, there.
“was an interest already estab-

lished in the well being of the
community.

There are those who believe
that Local Government can be
politically manipulated. In 1996

when there was the first local -

government election, the PLP
applauded the fact that many
of those elected were supporters
of the PLP.

They mistakenly believed -

that this was an indication of

-the-political barometer. History”
revealed that in the following

General Election in 1997, the
PLP suffered the worst defeat
of any political party in a post-
independence Bahamas. In
Freeport in 1999, I campaigned
for the team of Independent
candidates against teams that
were supported by both the
FNM and the PLP. The victory
for the Independent team was
virtually unanimous as they
soundly defeated the teams sup-
ported by both the FNM and
the PLP by winning all the posi-
tions in Freeport. ,

“However, despite the success —

ment, the development of this
new form of democratic process
has not been without its grow- —
ing pains. With such a new con-
cept in governing the people’s

’ affairs, it is reasonably expected

that there will be challenges and
that amendments would have
to be made at appropriate
times. If there were problems
with the system, then those
problems should have been
addressed in a sensible and log-
ical manner. The bad judgment
or inappropriate actions of a
few individuals should not be
used, as an excuse to condemn
the whole system, as I believe
may be the justification of the
CDR to change the whole sys-
tem. When one looks at prob-
lems encountered by Local °
Government in places such as .
Harbour Island, Guana Cay,

Bimini, Freeport, etc, we should

_be reminded that Local Gov-

ernment is much bigger than ~

‘any one individual. Rather than

hold the whole community
hostage or to ransom, individu-

.als who. may find themselves in

such a position should do: the
honourable thing and resign.
The public that elected you.
should be the ultimate judge as
to the fairness of your decisions
with their support.

Finally, a fair criticism of
Local Government has been a
lack of proper funding from the

-~€entrak Government: Without. -

the authority to raise its own

- funds, Local Government is at -

the mercy of the Central Gov-
ernment in this respect. Often-

times, it comes up.short of what

was requested. This makes the
balancing of the budget that
much more difficult. With
respect to New Providence that
apparently now wants to be
included in Local Government,
if Local Government is such a"
good thing for the community,
there -is no reason why. they
should not be included. Few can
argue that Local Government
has not been a tremendous ben-
efit to the communities in which
they serve.
Everything from disaster pre-
paredness to maintaining gov-
ernment buildings, school secu-
rity, cultural and educational
summer--job--pro-: -
grammes,.etc, have all fallen

‘under the umbrella of Local

Government responsibility.

These things are:done in a more

efficient, transparent. and.
accountable manner than what

was done prior to the imple-

mentation of Local Govern-
ment. If anything, the role of

Local Government should be

expanded.

‘Additional $4m’ for
restoration work

@ By DENISE MAYCOCK

Tribune Freeport Reporter

FREEPORT - Minister of Housing
and National Insurance Shane Gibson
has announced that an additional $4 mil-
lion has been earmarked by government
to complete the restoration work in

Grand Bahama.

The funds represent half the amount
approved last week by Cabinet for hur-
ricane repair and reconstruction across

the Bahamas.

Hurricanes

More than $15 million has already
been spent on restoration after hurri-
canes Frances and Jeanne last year.

Mr Gibson and Tourism Minister Obie
Wilchcombe, the MP for West End, were
in Grand Bahama earlier this week to get
an update on reconstruction efforts, par-



ticularly those underway at West End.

Mr Gibson said a total of $7.8 million
had been spent so far on repairs and the
purchase of supplies for Grand Bahama.

Of that, $7 million accounted for
labour costs, he said.

“We are more than 50 per cent com-
pleted with restoration on Grand
Bahama and we are very pleased with

tures on stills.

the progress at West End,” he said.
Mr Gibson noted that 50 homes are
currently being rebuilt in West End.
He added that a project is underway in
collaboration with the organisation
USAID to build more homes in low
lying areas, and to place waterfront struc-

“We feel this would avoid homes from

flooding and minimise damage caused
by storm surge” Mr Gibson said.

Mr Wilchcombe said the government
has been in discussions with a town plan-
ner to ensure proper planning in the area
in future.

“Many of the homes just appeared.

and so we have to think about where we «
are going to go, particularly if we are

talking about major development in
West End in the future,” he said.

Melvin. Seymour, undersecretary in
the Ministry of Housing, has been over-
seeing the restoration and repair on
Grand Bahama.

He is being reassigned to Nassau as
th new director of the Urban Renewal
Department.

Mr Gibson announced that Jerome
_Godfrey would replace Mr Seymour.

ENM calls for more government
involvement over casino layoffs

@ By RUPERT MISSICK Jr
Chief Reporter

THE Free National Move-

-ment has called for more

“proactive involvement” from
the PLP government in the
abrupt dismissal of 45 employ-
ees from the Isle of Capri Casi-
no in Grand Bahama.

The party claimed it had’

been aware of the possibility
of lay-offs at the casino, and
pointed out that FNM MP for
Lucaya Neko Grant warned
government about the situa-

.tion during his contribution to

the 2005-2006 budget debate
in the House of Assembly last
month.

“At that time the warning
signs included the closure of
the casino’s restaurant, except
for weekends and reports that
the operating company was
losing money.

“Yet through all that time
and in spite of those warning
signs Minister of Tourism Obie

FNM leader Tommy Turn-

Stuart also had difficulty getting into the
bathroom and moving around in it.

“We felt pressured to accept this
apartment,” Mr Thompson said, explaining
that they were told they had no other
option. .

He said the group would like to thank Mrs
Griffin and the ministry of Social Services
for having begun to respond to their “serious”
concerns that about the apartment, which
they say is not “disabled friendly.”

Mr Thompson went on to thank the public
for their support.

Response

“Until we started to hear response from
people generally, before the home closed in
June 2005, we did not know what their posi-
tions were in our cause of wanting to keep the
home open, as a disabled friendly facility for -
physically disabled adults,” he said.

“We are now increasingly aware, from com-
ments over the past two weeks in particular,
that many more people are understanding
our cause and are quite distressed over the
way we were evicted out of the home,” he
added.

The former Cheshire residents thanked the
public for their prayers and financial support
over the years.

They also thanked the Bahamas National
Council for Disability for its support.

Mr Wilchcombe has

It has been speculated that
further lay-offs are on the hori-

Court 2.

e A 29-year-old Farring-
ton Road man pleaded not
guilty to charges of drug
possession and bribery.

Sean Scavella was alleged-
ly found in possession of 1.5
pounds of marijuana on
Tuesday, July 12 while in the
area of St Agnes Church,
Blue Hill Road.

It is also alleged that Scav-
ella, a resident of Farring-
-ton Road, intended to sup-
ply the drugs to another.
According to the prosecu-
tor at Court 8, the drugs had
an estimated street value of
$1,500.

On that same date, it is
alleged that Scavella, while
in the area of Andros
Avenue, offered two police-
men — Detective Corporal
1908 Rolle and Detective
Constable 2688 Coakley —
$20,000 as inducement from
performing their duties.

ments made by Sir Jack, who
has demanded a full account-
ing of the fate of the $1 million.

“A concern was raised by a
representative of Grand

Bahama about the condition of

the YMCA. And the prime
minister thought it was very
important for us to come down
and see what sort of assistance
we could render,” said Mr Gib-
son.

“The fact of the matter is
when you look at.what the facil-
ity means for residents of Grand
Bahama we thought it was
important for us to step in at
this stage, he said.

‘Although YMCA officials
have raised $100,000, it is
believed that $400,000 is needed
to complete repairs.

Mr Gibson said the YMCA
had never approached his min-
istry for assistance.

“I am sure if we were

“We have now made a com-
mitment to assist them as much
as possible once we find out
exactly what has to be done in
having that building restored
back to a position that they can
begin to use once again.

Focus

, I think we should not focus
what happened in the past, but
on how quickly we can assist
them. We met with Sir Albert
Miller and Albert Gray and we
are willing to provide some sort
of assistance, but was not sure
how much assistance we could
provide until a complete scope
of the work needed is known,”
he said. ©

Mr Gibson explained that the

request of Sir Jack and Mr St
George.

“When you look at the mon-
ey donated by Sir Jack and
Edward St George they said
specifically schools, and'so that
would never have been spent
on the YMCA because it is not
a school,” he said.

Minister of Tourism Obie
Wilchcombe said the govern-
ment has done a significant job
in terms of hurricane restora-
tion on Grand Bahama. He said
millions have been spent to
repair the homes.

“T don’t believe it’s about
what the government did or did
not do.

“The truth of the matter is
when you look at all the work
that was done and is being
done, the government has done
significantly well.”

_ New website
showcases land
=== On Grand Bahama

@ By DENISE MAYCOCK
Tribune Freeport Reporter

FREEPORT - Persons interested in pur-
chasing land in Grand Bahama now have
the opportunity to view available lots
online by logging on to a new and innova-
tive website launched by the Grand
CO Development Company (DEV-
CO).

The website, www.gbdevco.com, offi-
cially went online for the first time on

_ Thursday.

It showcases Grand Bahama Island and
gives details of land slotted by DEVCO for
development and sale to potential clients
and investors around the world.

Responsible

DEVCO is responsible for most of the
land zoned for tourist, commercial and
residential use within the city of Freeport.

As the master developer for Freeport,
DEVCO has developed 40,000 individual
lots in 45 subdivisions and a seven-mile
sea water canal system.

The Grand Bahama Port Authority and
Hutchison Development Bahamas Limited
are also partners with DEVCO in the
development of Grand Bahama.

DEVCO development manager Charles
Pratt said the new website is designed to
improve the level of service the company
provides to customers in the Bahamas and
internationally.

“Jt is our intention to provide potential
customers and potential customers with

greater access to information about Grand
Bahama and this new website is a part of
this ongoing exercise,” he said.

The website, which is designed by
Thyme Design, provides browser access
to.an official locator and land use
map, or C-1 map, which features a
detailed layout of DEVCO’s properties
on. the island.

Each lot can be pinpointed on the map.
While property cannot be purchased
online, general details, such as location,
size, and type of property can be
researched.

Mr Pratt said the easy-to-use search
engine allows searches to be narrowed
down to specific categories, such as indi-
vidual subdivision or price range.

Ed.Rahming, DEVCO financial con-
troller, said 14 residential. sub-divisions
are featured on the website.

He noted that DEVCO is presently
developing new subdivisions such as
Colony Bay and Bristol Bay, which are
also featured.

Mr Pratt said one of Devco’s primary
goals for developing the website is to
attract investors to Grand Bahama.

“We want to provide the world with an
open view of the many attractive land sales
and development opportunities here in
Grand Bahama.”

The website also gives an overview of
local facilities and infrastructure on Grand
Bahama, and includes a special section for
potential investors, a frequently asked
questions page, and an introduction to
DEVCO.

Officers graduate from
Arson ee course

@ By KRISTINA McNEIL

ABOUT 30 police officers
from Nassau and the Family «
Islands graduated from the
first ever Arson Investigation
Course in a ceremony held
yesterday.

The course consisted of a
three-day workshop that
taught officers how to investi-
gate structural and vehicle
fires and how to determine the
cause of a fire.

Power Point presentations
and live practical experience
contributed to the officers’
learning.

Leading Seaman Julian
Smith was the only member of
the Royal Bahamas Defense
Force to take part in the
course.

His participation was
required, but he expressed his
gratitude to the commissioner
of police and commander of
the Defence Force for the
experience.

“In the past the Defence
Force has had a number of
vehicles catch a fire, and one
or two of them was burned
completely,” Mr Smith said.

Sponsored

“This is the first time a
member of the RBDF has par-
ticipated in a course spon-
sored by the police college
and Broward County Sheriff’s
Department.”

ASP Jeffrey Delaveaux said
he was pleased with the semi-
nar and was sure that it was
very rewarding for everyone
who participated in it.

“The commissioner of
police really saw a need for
it,” officer Delaveaux said.
“We have a number of arson
fires that are presently being
investigated, especially vehicle
fires. We see a propensity of
them near Christmas.

“There is a large volume of
vehicles that are being
destroyed by fire and they

point directly to arson: This °°" *"

seminar helped the officers to
become more knowledgeable
to pinpoint fires that have .
happened accidentally or that
were intentionally set,” he
said.

Mr Delaveaux explained
that the seminar was a timely
one as it took place shortly
atter the fire that destroyed
the airport at San Andros.

The visiting officials from
the Broward County Sheriffs
Office and Florida State Fire
Marshal’s Office were able to
go over to have a look at it.

Cable Bahamas
announces refinements

i)

to bas

CABLE Bahamas has
announced several refine-
ments to the basic cable
television packages in New
Providence, Grand
Bahama, Abaco and
Eleuthera beginning this
August through September.

According to a company
representative, several new
channels, including the Dis-
covery Channel, Food Net-
work, and Tempo, a new
Caribbean-focused music
network, will be added to
basic cable.

Currently

Sci-Fi and E! Entertain-
ment Television, while cur-
rently on basic cable in
Grand Bahama, Abaco and
Nassau, will become part of
the basic package for all
four islands.

When the changes are
complete all customers on
the four islands will have
identical basic cable pack-
ages for the first time.

Director of marketing

and pay-per-view David
Burrows said Eleuthera
customers will see a near-
complete revamp of their
basic cable package.

In addition to the chan-
nel changes, basic cable will
be realigned so that chan-
nels offering similar pro-
gramming genres are

c cable packages

Several new
channels will
be added to
subscribers in
four islands

grouped together. “For
example, if you are follow-
ing a news story it will be
easier to surf from one
news channel to the next
using your remote control.
With the major networks,
family and children’s chan-
nels grouped together, it
will be easier and faster to
find just what you want.”

Upgrade

Cable Bahmas said the
changes are possible
because of a recently com-
pleted $2 million technical
upgrade investment in the
company’s broadband sig-
nal processing facility in
Nassau.

A detailed overview of
the revised basic channel
list will soon be posted to
the company’s website,
www.cablebahamas.com.

Maturation observed
as Bahamas celebrates
its 32nd anniversary

- [2s been well said -°

that time heals all ills.
The truth of this fact is clearly
revealed when one compares
the mood of this country — as
it celebrated its first anniver-
sary of nationhood some 32
years ago — with all that has
transpired similarly in that

‘regard this past week.

To fully appreciate the
degree of maturation by
Bahamians generally that has
occurred during the past three
decades, one has to reflect
upon the temperament of a
vast number of Bahamians
toward the concept of nation-
al sovereignty for this archi-
pelago when the notion of
change from British colonial
status was first proffered some
two years before its actual
“attainment on July 10, 1973.

Unfortunately, just three

. Short years after majority rule
was attained in the Bahamas
in 1967, a split occurred in the
governing Progressive Liberal
Party (PLP). This. division
took place when eight of its
parliamentary members —
including four Cabinet Minis-
_ters —joined opposition Unit-

Independence did not garner
much support from the older
members of the party at that
time.

Following their expulsion
from the PLP, those eight men
at first formed a political enti-
ty known as the Free PLP,
under which banner they con-
tested the bye-election in
Andros in 1971 brought about
following the death of incum-
bent Mr Clarence A Bain.
That election was also con-
tested by the UBP. Mr Darrell
Rolle emerged as the victori-
ous PLP candidate. Shortly
afterwards, the Free PLP
merged with the UBP to form
the Free National Movement
(FNM).

It was not too long there-
after that the PLP began its
move for Bahamian Indepen-
dence, which was met with

strong opposition from the:

FNM and its supporters. So
intense was some pockets of

fidence, moved by Labour

member Mr Randol Fawkes

against Prime Minister Lyn-
den O Pindling in the House
of Assembly. The Govern-
ment barely survived with a
narrow four-vote margin.

ed by Mr Cecil Wal-
lace-Whitfield, these

men, who later became known .

as the, Dissident Eight, were

subsequently expelled from: 1
the PLP at its convention’

shortly thereafter in October
1970. Other members of the
group included the following:
Messrs Arthur Foulkes, War-
ren Levarity, Elwood Don-
aldson, George Thompson,
Curtis McMillan, James Shep-
herd and Maurice Moore.
Some of these men, as
young Turks, had been advo-

cating Independence for the’

Bahamas since the early

‘1960s, while members of the |

National Committee for Posi-
tive Action (NCPA), an action
group within the PLP. It
should be noted that their

enthusiasm for Bahamian



opposition to Independence
at the time that a secessionist
movement was spawned in
Abaco, whose members advo-
cated their desire to.remain
within the British colonial
structure.

The unfortunate outcome
of all this opposition was that
Independence became such a
partisan political issue. Thus,
the ensuing September 19,
1972 General Election was
contested as a virtual referen-

-dum:.on national sovereignty
for: the Bahamas.

The PLP

thereafter introduced to the
Bahamian populace a Green
Paper on Independence. After
widespread dissemination, this
was followed by the issuance
of a White Paper that outlined
all the details concerning Inde-
pendence.

Not too long afterwards, the
proposed Independence leg-

‘islation was debated and

passed in the House of
Assembly and Senate, follow-
ing which the Independent
nation known as the Com-
monwealth of the Bahamas
came into being on July 10,
1973, seconds after midnight.

MACKEY

Thus, following a spectacular
ceremony at Clifford Park on
that occasion, our nation was
born when the Union Jack
was lowered for the final time
and our own black, gold and
aquamarine flag was initially
raised.

However, following a bitter
election campaign the previ-
ous year on the issue of
national sovereignty, Inde-
pendence. came to a divided
country and, for quite some
time in the years following, its
celebration was regarded —
and treated — as a PLP event
rather than as a national his-
toric occasion. But, as was
stated earlier, time has a way
of healing all ills. This fact was
clearly observed at this year’s
celebration of our nation’s
32nd anniversary:

he appreciable degree

of maturation as a
united and sovereign people
has — over the past three
decades — been a gradual
process. During this time, we
have seen the peaceful trans-
fer of governmental leader-
ship from the PLP to the FNM
on August 19, 1992 and back
to the PLP on May 2, 2002. In
the process, we have seen two
former law partners change
places as Prime Ministers of
the Commonwealth of the

Bahamas in-the persons ‘of **:
» Hubert A Ingraham and Per-

ry G Christie.

Over these past 32 years, we
have produced a Bahamian
Archbishop of the Anglican
Province of the West Indies, in
the. person of His Grace the
Rt Rev Drexel Gomez, and a
Bahamian Archbishop of the
Roman Catholic Church in
this area also, in the person of
His Grace the Rt Rev Patrick
Pinder.

In sports, we have produced
Olympic champions such as

our Golden Girls (Pauline .

Davis Thompson, Eldece
Clarke Lewis, Savatheda
Fynes, Chandra Sturrup and
Debbie Ferguson) and more

recently Tonique Williams-

Darling. We have even pro-
duced a United States Open
tennis champion in Mark
Knowles. All of these athletes
have become our national
heroes, having brought great
international recognition to
our beloved little country, and
— in the process — given us all

more reason for being proud -

to be Bahamian.

So great has been our matu-
rity as a sovereign people that,
a few years ago, our former
High Commissioner to Great
Britain and distinguished
diplomat Sir Arthur Foulkes
admitted on national radio
that the FNM’s opposition to
Independence in 1973 was not
borne out of any misgivings
about national sovereignty,
but was rather due to the fact
that they did not wish to see it

attained under the Pindling

administration. In this regard,

Sir Arthur spoke for thou-
sands of others who now iden-

tify themselves as being proud —

Bahamians.

Thus, when one looks at all
the flags, bunting and other.
trappings that so beautifully
adorned government build-
ings, churches, business estab-

lishments, private homes and °
roundabouts throughout this ..

island over the Independence
holiday weekend, one could
almost touch the patriotism
and national pride they depict-

ed and exuded — although
intangible in nature. So great |

has been our maturation as.a

people over these past 32 .

years.

Finally, we were privileged

to have entertained some vis-
iting friends over this period

their concurrence when we.

told them that there are many

places in the great United .

Body of missing
woman is discovered

FROM page one

In an interview with The Tri-
‘bune Mrs Curtis' mother,
Wescola Larrimore, and her
istep father, Tribune employee

ouglas Larrimore, said they
lidentified her body around 11
am Friday.
i "I could not recognise her.

;she don’t have no face," Mrs
tLarrimore said. She said that
all that was left was a facial
:skeleton as though acid had
ibeen poured on her face so that
ighe would not be recognised.
; i "T recognised her by a heart-
‘shaped tattoo on her thigh —

er hair even fell off her head,"
igaid her mother.

"Her whole body was burnt
from the sun, all her flesh was
black and burnt. And there
were maggots on her body,"
said her mother.

According to reports, Mrs
Curtis was found bent over in a
kneeling. position, her face to
the ground. She was naked. Her
beige coloured security uniform,
which was not torn, was found
next to the body with a screw-
driver and a knife.

The Larrimores said they
learned that their daughter was
missing when her husband told
them she was not at home and
had not reported for work.

He told them he had gone
twice to Paradise Island to look

for her. "I asked him how could
she be missing and it hasn’t
been two or three hours yet,"
Mrs Larrimore said.

Around 12.30pm Saturday,
Mr Curtis went to ZNS to speak
with reporter Clint Watson. Mr
Watson confirmed that Mr Cur-
tis had arrived at the station to
put a missing persons notice on
the air.

Mr Watson asked Mr Curtis
whether he had filed a police
report. Mr Curtis said he had.
Mr Watson said he investigated
Mr Curtis’ claim, but was told
that no report had been filed.

"I told him we would have to
wait for Tuesday, as she could
not be declared missing before

‘Two-week
extension
for MPs to
pay lawyer

FROM page one

Mr Stubbs, MP for Holy.Cross; and Mr Stubbs,

MP for Mount Moriah, owes his law firm thou-
sands of dollars.

Mr Munroe told The Tribune yesterday
that after speaking with Mr Smith, who
acts as Mr Stubbs’ lawyer, he was
referred to another attorney.

As a result of those discussions he said
he has decided to give the two MPs an
extension.

“(The extension was given) out of
courtesy and practicality. You just don’t
go precipitously to. court if you can deal

| With an issue in private. It occupies the

court’s time, and in two weeks hopefully
we will have the matter resolved,” said
Mr Munroe.

Asked if he. was confident that the debt
would be paid in two weeks, Mr Munroe
responded: “I don’t know, but if not the
courts are not going anywhere.”

The Tribune was unable to contact Mr
Smith on Friday. ;

Mr Smith had said previously that

despite Mr Munroe’s assertion that he
and Mr Stubbs owed $6,600 and $30,000
in court fees, respectively, the payment
ordered by the Court of Appeal was nev-
er certified.

Therefore, according to Mr Smith, he
is not obliged to pay the fee.

However, Mr Munroe said that his law
firm will be seeking to enforce the pay-

‘ ment.of the court costs owed by the two

members of parliament.

However, Mr Munroe could not say
when the applications would be filed. “I
know that up until Friday of last week
they had begun drawing up what are
called the debtor summons.to serve on
them.”

When Chief Justice Sir Burton Hall
annulled the order of bankruptcy in the
case of Mr Stubbs, Mr Munroe said his
firm extended 21 days to the MP from
that point. This time expired sometime in
May.

Mr Munroe was the attorney for Gina
Gonzales, whose suit against Mr Stubbs
brought about the bankruptcy proceed-
ings against the Holy Cross MP.

48 hours. Mr Curtis casually left,
promising to return on Tues-
day," he said.

And then the dreams started,
promoting the Larrimore fami-
ly to organize search parties to
search the sites suggested by the
dreams.

Mts Larrimore said she was
told that one of Mr Curtis’ aunts
had a dream "where the spirit

showed Romanda tied down on -

the side of a pink building in
the bushes."

The Larrimores said that
because of this the family
searched the bushes on Paradise
Island for almost a week around
a pink building near "Roman-
da's security booth."

Then on Thursday morning
Mr Curtis' father dreamt "that
Manda was through a corner by
the hospital in a bushy area."
Again Romanda’s family and
friends organised a search party.

. This time they went to the

Sands Road. area. It was there
that the body was discovered..

"I want answers, I want to
know what happened, I ask

.God to bring Manda home safe,

‘but he carried her to Him safe,"
said Mrs Larrimore.

Ricardo Curtis was arrested
by officers of the Central Detec-
tive Unit Thursday evening
when he arrived at the area
where his wife’s body was dis-
covered. Before his arrival both
families were locked in an

" uproar of suspicion and angry

accusations.

"Although everything is
pointing at Ricky, I don’t want
to hear hearsay, I want the facts
because a killer could still be

"I want the real killer to suf-

However, the company did issue a press release following the
demonstration, stating that they regretted having to fire the 20

“These were valued staff members Shioi we were forced to

: ‘-VMG Bahamas triathletes
ee ‘travelled to the Big Apple over
- Independence weekend and put
-ontremendous performances at
‘the 2005 Ford New York City
Triathlon.

-Mark Holowesko claimed sec-
ond in his division with an over-
alltime of 2:13:08. Holowesko
‘could not have asked for a better
start to the race. He put in his
second best swim time ever,
emerging out of the water tenth
overall.

Basil Goulandris, who has had
stellar performances throughout
the season, put in yet another
top level finish, coming sixth in
his Division of 250 athletes.
Overall, Goulandris’ time put
him in the top two per cent of
the huge field.

Competing in the Elite Divi-
sion, VMG teammate Bucky

ful race, finishing 17th in his divi-
sion and overall. .

Holowesko, the founder of

“great, great athletes.”

Holowesko said. “It was a real-
ly good race for each of us and I
am very proud of our results.”

Holowesko was also pretty
pleased with his own feat. The
swim portion of the NYC
Triathlon was held in the Hud-
son River. Conditions were fair-
ly choppy and the current quite
strong.

“Being Bahamian,”
Holowesko said, “I wasn’t put
off by the water conditions, as a
lot of the other competitors were.
I knew if I. swam right I could

- use the conditions to my advan-

tage.” That turned out to be an
understatement as Holowesko
beat 1,790 of the 1,800 competi-

’ tors in the event out of the water.

Spoiled by the pristine waters
of the Bahamas, Holowesko has
said on more than: one occasion

that one of the biggest motiva- -

tions for him in the swim por-
tions of triathlons is simply “to
get out of the water as quickly as
possible.”

And he joked, “I only hit one
branch along the route in the
Hudson River.”

pleased with his performance.
He was also able to use the cur-
rent in the river to his advantage

Goulandris had a strong bike,
passing 100 competitors on the
course.

The Ford New York City

Davis we woe
for the Bahama:

@ By BRENT STUBBS
Senior Sports Reporter



DESPITE a gutsy performance from top seed
Marvin Rolle, the Bahamas finds itself in a 0-2
hole against Colombia in the second round of
the American Zone II Davis Cup tie.

In the opening singles matches played yes-
terday at the America Tennis Club in Bogota,
Colombia, Rolle took Colombia’s No.2 seed
Pablo Gonzalez to the wire, losing 3-6, 6-2, 6-2,
3-6, 6-2.

Then in the second match played, Bahamas’
No.2 seed Devin. Mullings was defeated by
Colombia’s No.1 seed Alejandro Falla in three
straight sets, 6-4, 6-2, 6-3.

“I think they gave it a good effort,” said
Bahamas Lawn Tennis Association’s president
Mary Shelley, who was among the small group
of Bahamian spectators in the stands. “I think
they played well.”

Looking at Rolle’s match, Shelley said she
felt “he gave a gutsy performance. I was very
pleased with the way he played. It was a very
good match.”

Shelley, however, said there were one or two
points that separated Rolle from winning the
match. When he had the opportunity to put
away Gonzalez, he didn’t do it.

“He was having some problems physically,”
she admitted. “So he wasn’t able to play as well
as he’s capable of playing. I think he should
have won his match.”

As for Mullings’ match, Shelley said Falla
rode the momentum of Gonzalez and he played
a very smart match. Falla, according to Shelley,
never allowed Munnings to get into the match.

“After the first set, he had some problems
breathing,” Shelley noted.

“But it was a hard fought match. I think he
gave it his best.”

Shelley said Munnings came into Bogota not
at full strength and it has carried over in his
match. But she feels that if he can get sufficient
rest today, he should be better prepared for
the reverse singles on Sunday.

“I feel he can beat Gonzalez,” Shelley reflect-
ed. “I think he just needs to be well rested.”

Today Rolle will team up with Ryan Sweeting
to play in the pivotal doubles. The Bahamas
will have to win in order to extend the tie
through Sunday.

Doubles

If the Bahamas loses the doubles, the order of
play for the reverse singles could change on
Sunday. Sweeting and H’Cone Thompson, the
other member of the team, could end up playing
as their matches won’t make a difference.

But Shelley isn’t conceding defeat just
yet. ;

“T honestly believe that we can win the dou-
bles,” she projected. “We have a good team in
Marvin and Ryan who play very well together.”

The Colombians’ top seeded players are all
ranked, whereas both of the Bahamian play-
ers only have one ATP computer point each,
which makes it even more difficult.

However, Shelley noted that the crowd has
been very supportive of the Bahamian players
and that has helped to keep the team in high
spirits.

“It’s a tough tie, but we’re trying our best,”
Shelley summed up.

Team captain John Farrington, Rolle and
Munnings were practising at presstime and were
unavailable for comment.

John Todd Basketball ¢ Cam. ,



gets 21st event underway

#@ By RENALDO DORSETT
Junior Sports Reporter

FOR more than two
decades, one local basketball
coach, teacher and enthusiast
has continued to extend his
services to the country's youth
without any signs of slowing
down.

The 21st annual John Todd
Basketball Camp got under-
way on Tuesday at the St.
Augustine's College Campus,
with over 30 youngsters eager-
ly anticipating over a week of
basketball tutelage.

The camp, which is open to
boys and girls aged 6-14, will
continue until July 22nd.

One of the oldest summer
basketball camps in existence,
the John Todd Basketball
Camp places on keen empha-
sis on teaching its athletes the
history of Bahamian basket-
ball.

Emphasis on teaching history of
Bahamian involvement in the sport

Camp Director John Todd
said he has seen his camp
grow in leaps and bounds over
two decades.

Prepare

"When we first started the
camp in 1985 we had around
15 campers," he said. “Now
when we prepare for camp we
usually anticipate about 60
kids."

Todd said his camp attempts
to limit numbers in order to
give campers individual atten-
tion.

As always, the camp will
focus on physical basketball
and technical skills so campers
can learn to play the game
while simultaneously learning
about it.

“Every instructor we have
is a teacher, we don't have any
students teaching basketball,"
he said. "We have coaches
here that are also officials so

these kids will learn how to.

play the game the right way."
Todd said his camp prides
itself on pushing Bahamian

_ basketball icons to the fore-

front rather than placing NBA

players on pedestals as so
many young athletes do.

Outstanding

"Our object here is to pro-
mote outstanding Bahamian
basketball players. We try to
teach you about Bahamian
legends like Sharon Storr,
Mychal Thompson, Sterling
Quant, Dexter Cambridge and
so forth," he said. “They are
the ones who kept basketball
in this country alive over a
long period of time."

In the past, the camp has

featured NBA pros Spud
Webb and Dominique
Wilkins.

"This camp doesn't cater to
bringing in NBA players or
big international names, but
if we do happen to get them
here it's a bonus," he said.

Todd said focusing his camp
on the development of
younger players will ensure
the improvement of basket-
ball across the country.

"If you reach the younger
kids, then the game as a whole
will benefit. Back when mini
basketball was more promi-

nent, for the younger players,
our camp had the best talent
in the country," he said,
"We want to develop good
ball handling and shooting

- habits as early as possible.

To ensure campers gain as
much basketball knowledge
as possible and have fun at the
same time, Todd said his camp
features a number of head on
competitions in various bas-
ketball disciplines.

Prizes will be given
to campers for winning
various competitions exhibit-
ing the best lay-up, jump shot,
and free throw shooting
skills.

Other awards given to
campers will-include, Mest
Improved Player, Best Defen-
sive Player, and Most Out-
standing Player.

The camp features a num-
ber of prominent coaches in
the game.

The clinic will provide instructional:

lessons, motivational speaking and
tutelage in fundamental basketball
skills.

Following their on-the-court train-
ing, the youngsters will participate in
the NBA/Miami Heat “Read to
Achieve” initiative which helps chil-
dren realise the importance of read-
ing and encourages adults to read with
children.

Benefits

Jones, who has participated in
Bahamian basketball clinics regularly
for the past 17 years, said this endeav-
our is particularly important because it
strongly promotes educational bene-
fits.

He first visited the Bahamas con-
ducting basketball clinics alongside
Mychal Thompson, Osborne Lockhart
and Deputy Prime Minister, Cynthia
"Mother" Pratt and he says "Shoot for
the Stars" is not your average summer
basketball clinic.

"It's important to realise the Shoot
for the Stars Basketball Clinic isn't just
about basketball," he said. "It's about
getting kids around the world to realise
the importance of reading."

Jones said kids can relate better to
professional athletes because most kids
look up to them and are more recep-
tive to their message.

"The kids know and can identify
with these professional athletes," he
said. "So they will listen more atten-
tively when they see players like Rasu-
al, Shaquille or Dwayne Wade tell
them how important it is to learn how
to read."

Jones said the clinic will serve some-
what as a relationship building process
for coaches and officials here, in
‘order for the program to be able to
continue.

"That's why we get to know these
coaches," he said. "What we're doing is
teaching process skills, nurturing skills,
and teaching skills so this program can
live on for more than one day."

Butler, a key reserve in the Miami
Heat's run at the NBA championship,

, said he supports the program because.

of three very important factors in his
life; education, basketball and reaching



out to inner city youth.

"I came from the inner-city myself,
in Philadelphia, so I know how hard it
can be sometimes," he said. "If it was-
n't for basketball, a kid like myself
would not have had the opportunity
to get an education."

The three-year-veteran, who aver-
aged 6.5 points and 2.3 rebounds per

game last season, said he used basket-
ball as a vehicle to gain an education
and hopes he can help others do the
same.

"Kids need to learn that there is a
life after basketball," he said, "And
they need someone to help them
understand that reading is the most
important fundamental skill for a suc-

ami Heat’s ‘Shoot for the
Stars’ clinic is an educatic

cessful life."

Butler said coming from humble
beginnings will help him to relate to
local children.

He said the youngsters attending the
clinic can expect to learn a number of
skills, including his trademark jump-
shot.

"I'm a good jumpshooter so that's

ing with young kids and that’s a diajor
reason why I'm here."

The Heat Organisation also visited
sick children at the Princess Margaret
Hospital yesterday and hosted a bas-
ketball clinic for children in the St.
Cecilia constituency.

Group claims they

were fired after

eing told to train
younger staff

‘By PAULG

TURNQUEST
and TIFFANY GRANT
Tribune Staff Reporters

TWENTY security officers at

-the WEMCO Security and
: Credit Collections Limited were

: unexpectedly laid off yesterday.

Under the guise of a staff

‘meeting, employees said they
‘were told to report to the

- Collins Avenue office at 1lam
- when they were handed letters

informing them that their posi-
tions had been made redundant

‘due to the company’s present
financial circumstances.

Now a group of officers claim

they were fired by the company
‘after being told to train a
: younger (cheaper) staff.

“But now I don’t have a job.

We were the ones who helped
: them get a steady footing and

now they using that same foot

: to’kick us out,” said Leanamae
' Clare, a security officer who had
‘ been with the company for five
- years.

Ms Clare and about nine oth-

_ er officers demonstrated out-.

side the company’s office yes-

- terday shortly following the ter-

minations.

Said Lythera Roach, a secu-

. rity officer who had been with

*

the company for more than
:‘ three years: “We thought that

es ‘ we would be relocated but they

just gave us these letters say-
ing, ‘here this will explain it’,
and that was it.

“They said it was based on
low performance and poor ser-
vice. But how can that be when
I was just awarded last year for
my good performance, and then
this year I got sick so they cut

me? Why don’t they just tell the |

truth — that they need to down-
size because they lost some con-
tracts.”

Speaking from his car as he
left the office, WEMCO gener-
al manager Paul Thompson said
the company had no choice but

to reduce its staff because it lost -

a large portion of a major con-
tract.

“Up to the last minute we

were trying to see if we could
have found a way where we
could keep (the. officers), but
that isn’t possible. They said the
best thing to do was to make
them redundant.

“Instead of a verbal notice
they are paying them, which the
law said we can do,” explained
Mr Thompson.

The officers were given let-
ters instructing them to turn in
their uniforms and to discuss
their payment with the finan-
cial officer, Mr Thompson
added.

THE highly udiespated Marina Vil-
lage at Atlantis on Paradise Island
opened for its first day of business yes-
terday.

The 65,000 square foot development,
situated at the eastern end of the exist-
ing Marina at Atlantis, has five restau-

rants, 21 retail outlets, and a collection -

of carts that showcase the artistry of the
Bahamas.

Sol Kerzner, chairman of Kerzner
International and the “master architect”
behind the Marina Village, toured the
development with senior officials of
Kerzner International yesterday.

“It’s even nicer than I anticipated. I
think it is really super, obviously today
is day one... We are looking good and
we are opening one restaurant almost
every day, and they (the restaurants)

are looking pretty exciting. I think we"
have a great variety of restaurants.
here...people seem to be very happy

and excited and I am very pleased,” said
Mr Kerzner.

Speaking of ‘the restaurants,
Carmine’s, a popular New York eatery
known for its Italian dishes, is one of
the exciting features at the Marina Vil-
lage. The team of Atlantis chefs and
restaurant managers who will operate
the branch on Paradise Island recently
travelled to Manhattan where they
received extensive training at two of the
city’s locations.

. Carmine’s at the Marina Village is
the first international branch of the
restaurant.

Road, which features:

‘ment against a brightly-coloured back-

drop; Café Martinique, featuring the
gourmet cuisine of French chef, Jean-
Georges Vongerichten; Seafire Steak-
house, featuring seared and grilled fare;
and Johnny Rockets, a hamburger chain
that serves some 22 million hamburgers
per year to its patrons worldwide, make
up the many dining possibilities at the
Marina Village.

While Seafire Steakhouse and Johnny
Rockets opened their doors to the pub-
lic yesterday, Carmine’s opens official-
ly on Tuesday, July 19; Café Martinique,
on Friday, July 29; and Bimini Road,
on Monday, August 1.

tious breads.

The Marina Village is an open-
air marketplace with three main
plazas that are designed to resem-
ble a “quaint” Bahamian settle-
ment.

It is open to the general public
and promises to provide busi-
nesses with excellent sales oppor-
tunities as thousands of cruise
ship visitors will pass through the
Marina to get to the Atlantis
Resort.

Not only will the development
attract Atlantis’ guests, but it is
expected to be a must-see attrac-
tion for all tourists to the country,
even those who do not stay on
Paradise Island.

With big names like Starbucks,
the world famous coffee shop —
for now, the only branch of its
kind in the Bahamas — locals are
sure to be attracted to the Marina
Village. (Starbucks International
is in negotiations with Coffee Cay
Limited, a Bahamian company,
about the latter becoming the
official licensee for the company
in this nation). .

Taking it all in at one glance,
the Marina Village can be
described as a one-stop haven,
as it features a variety of outlets
that provide a broad shopping
and entertainment experience —
arguably unlike anything else in
the Caribbean.

A La Plage, a contemporary
family boutique, carries fashion
lines such as Aqua de Coco, Rygy
and Lenny. Pirana Joe
Resortwear, a fun family shop-
ping experience offers the latest
lines in high quality clothing
designed for the comfort of hotel
guests who will spend a great
portion of their stay touring
the hotels and sites around the
island.

Park Lane Jewellers, known
for antique jewellery, vintage-
style accessories and distinctive
collectables; John Bull; The

Emeralds International join the
line-up of jewellery outlets at the

While international themes are
very much a part of what the
Marina Village offers, giving

not been ignored.

@ By KARIN HERIG
Tribune Staff Reporter

THE resolution of the months-long
debacle in the Department of the Reg-
istrar General constitutes a “incremen-
tal victory for good governance,” former
Registrar General Elizabeth Thomp-
son said yesterday.

Speaking with the media at the offices
of her lawyer Milton Evans, Ms Thomp-
son said she feels that the country has
“democratically grown” because of the
outcome of the dispute.

As reported by The Tribune, Ms
Thompson tendered her resignation
from the post of Registrar General at
3pm on Thursday after her lawyers
came to an agreement with government
regarding the terms of the financial set-
tlement.

Settlement

Ms Thompson yesterday reiterated
that she did not wish to discuss the “dol-
lars and cents” aspect of the settlement
agreement. She said she was satisfied
with the remuneration she has received.

“T’m a lot better off today then I was
yesterday,” she said.

The former Registrar General was
fired from her post by the Judicial and

. Legal Services Commission (JLSC) in
January of this year.

- However, this decision. was over-:
turned by Supreme Court Justice Hugh
Small, who determined that Ms Thomp-
son was wrongfully terminated. He lat-
er upheld the decision when govern-
ment sought to achieve a stay of the
tuling.

The court also ordered that Ms

Thompson should be awarded damages
and other costs.

Mr Evans yesterday expressed his
regret over the fact that it took the gov-
ernment six weeks to comply with the
court order.

“What began as an interesting legal
matter turned into a very emotional, -
turbulent, and unnecessarily protracted
matter. One disappointment that I have
is that this matter that could have been
resolved within a week, ended up taking
six weeks, but I’m very glad about the
result,” he said.

Mr Evans explained that one of the
difficulties about the case of Ms Thomp-
son was that Justice Small made a spe-
cific finding, but gave no directions.

“He (Justice Small) explained that
once (he) indicated what the law is, (he)
expected that it will be carried out, and”
those who know what they should do,
will do what they ought to do,” Mr
Evans said. .

The lawyer said. that he hopes this
case has the effect of “letting citizens
know that you. have a right to get what
is due to you, not asking for anything
beyond that.”

“That what justice is about, that is
what society is about,” he noted.

Ms Thompson explained that in tak-
ing on the government she risked her
home and the ability to provide’ for her
four sons.

She thanked: her familyan

HURRICANE Emily has cut a
path of destruction through Grana-
da and is now threatening to make
landfall in Jamaica.

After gaining enough strength to
become a category four hurricane,
Emily slammed into Grenada mow-
ing down homes and buildings
across the island.

Grenada, which is still recovering
from Hurricane Ivan last year,
received a direct hit from Emily
Thursday afternoon.

At least one person has died on
that island, as the storm caused
extensive flooding and mudslides.

Last year Grenada lost thousands
of homes to Ivan and suffered mil-
lions of dollars worth of damage.

The eye of the storm is predicted
to pass across the southern part of
Jamaica sometime today.



Emily is expected to douse the
island with heavy rains that could
lead to extensive flooding and land-
slides.

Emily, which has now weakened
to a category three hurricane, is the
second storm to achieve hurricane
status this season.

The importance of
local government
in the Bahamas

EDITOR, The Tribune.

---ON- JUNE“ 10,°2005, the ~
--Coalition--for Democratic

Reform (CDR) issued a press
release entitled “Local Gov-
ernment (Part 1) Nothing but
a farce!”

The position of the CDR is
basically that Local Govern-
ment as it currently exists is not
working. The CDR feels that
the failure of Local. Govern-
ment is due in part to the polit-
ical agenda of the FNM who
had introduced it and the PLP
government that is now charged
with the responsibility of main-
taining it. Also, New Providence
where two thirds of the popula-
tion resides should be included
as well. Considering the fact
that the CDR is also a political
party, one can only speculate
as to the motive of their press
release criticising Local Gov-

.. ernment.
..... AS a little-boy growing up in

Acklins, I was aware of the fact
that local government was
defined as the periodic visit of
an Out Island Commissioner.
‘Sometimes these visits could be
just once a month or longer as
the Commissioner had other
jurisdictions and islands to look
after. During such a visit, the
business of government was
conducted, with the Commis-
sioner providing everything

from old age. pension. to-pay--
“ments for public works such as

weeding the graveyard or fix-
ing the roads. Basically, the
Commissioner was dispatched
from the nation’s capital of Nas-
sau with an assigned task and
specific directives as to how he
was to conduct his business. He
was accountable, not.to the
local population that he was

“serving, but. to his boss, the :
_ Department of Local Govern-

ment, which later became the
Ministry of Local Government.
With little discretion to deviate
from his directives, the Com-
missioner had little authority to
assist locals outside the scope
of his duties unless he took his
own personal initiative to assist
in a particular matter.

To further complicate mat-
ters, the Member of Parliament

for an Out Island constituency...
"had vested in him the authority
“to veto any licence application

for business, taxi plates, gov-
ernment jobs, etc.

Oftentimes, as has been doc-
umented so often in the media,
for your application to succeed,
you had to be in the good grace
of the MP. This created an abu-
sive system of political patron-
age, nepotism, corruption and
outright victimisation. To be
successful with your application,
you literally had to kiss the ring
(or the backside) of the MP.

This system was clearly evil
and unjust. In addition, it did
not take into account the con-

cerns of the people most affect-
ed by such policies, the locals.
That’s why one of the promises
that a newly elected PLP gov-
ernment after Majority Rule on
January 10, 1967 had promised
was to implement a proper sys-
tem of local government. To
this end, in 1969, the PLP gov-
ernment of the day produced a
green paper for public discus-

. sion as how to implement a sys-

tem of local government.
Regrettably, for the next twen-
ty-three years, the PLP govern-
ment of the day placed the issue
of the implementation of a true
system of local government on
the back burner.

__ Finally, in 1996, under. the .
FNM government, a system of

local government was imple-
mented. Under this scheme,
those responsible for adminis-
tering local government had to
be locally elected. Not, only
were they to be directly respon-

sible to those who had elected

them, but to be a candidate for

Local Government, one had to:

reside and be registered to vote
in that constituency. Unlike the
Member of Parliament who

could reside in Nassau or else- '
--where and be unavailable to his ~

constituents or simply just
“ducking” them, the elected
Local Government official by
residing in his constituency was
available 24/7 to the public.
Furthermore, such individuals
should have been elected on the
fact that they were caring and

-concerned individuals of that
community. Therefore, there.
“was an interest already estab-

lished in the well being of the
community.

There are those who believe
that Local Government can be
politically manipulated. In 1996

when there was the first local -

government election, the PLP
applauded the fact that many
of those elected were supporters
of the PLP.

They mistakenly believed -

that this was an indication of

-the-political barometer. History”
revealed that in the following

General Election in 1997, the
PLP suffered the worst defeat
of any political party in a post-
independence Bahamas. In
Freeport in 1999, I campaigned
for the team of Independent
candidates against teams that
were supported by both the
FNM and the PLP. The victory
for the Independent team was
virtually unanimous as they
soundly defeated the teams sup-
ported by both the FNM and
the PLP by winning all the posi-
tions in Freeport. ,

“However, despite the success —

ment, the development of this
new form of democratic process
has not been without its grow- —
ing pains. With such a new con-
cept in governing the people’s

’ affairs, it is reasonably expected

that there will be challenges and
that amendments would have
to be made at appropriate
times. If there were problems
with the system, then those
problems should have been
addressed in a sensible and log-
ical manner. The bad judgment
or inappropriate actions of a
few individuals should not be
used, as an excuse to condemn
the whole system, as I believe
may be the justification of the
CDR to change the whole sys-
tem. When one looks at prob-
lems encountered by Local °
Government in places such as .
Harbour Island, Guana Cay,

Bimini, Freeport, etc, we should

_be reminded that Local Gov-

ernment is much bigger than ~

‘any one individual. Rather than

hold the whole community
hostage or to ransom, individu-

.als who. may find themselves in

such a position should do: the
honourable thing and resign.
The public that elected you.
should be the ultimate judge as
to the fairness of your decisions
with their support.

Finally, a fair criticism of
Local Government has been a
lack of proper funding from the

-~€entrak Government: Without. -

the authority to raise its own

- funds, Local Government is at -

the mercy of the Central Gov-
ernment in this respect. Often-

times, it comes up.short of what

was requested. This makes the
balancing of the budget that
much more difficult. With
respect to New Providence that
apparently now wants to be
included in Local Government,
if Local Government is such a"
good thing for the community,
there -is no reason why. they
should not be included. Few can
argue that Local Government
has not been a tremendous ben-
efit to the communities in which
they serve.
Everything from disaster pre-
paredness to maintaining gov-
ernment buildings, school secu-
rity, cultural and educational
summer--job--pro-: -
grammes,.etc, have all fallen

‘under the umbrella of Local

Government responsibility.

These things are:done in a more

efficient, transparent. and.
accountable manner than what

was done prior to the imple-

mentation of Local Govern-
ment. If anything, the role of

Local Government should be

expanded.

‘Additional $4m’ for
restoration work

@ By DENISE MAYCOCK

Tribune Freeport Reporter

FREEPORT - Minister of Housing
and National Insurance Shane Gibson
has announced that an additional $4 mil-
lion has been earmarked by government
to complete the restoration work in

Grand Bahama.

The funds represent half the amount
approved last week by Cabinet for hur-
ricane repair and reconstruction across

the Bahamas.

Hurricanes

More than $15 million has already
been spent on restoration after hurri-
canes Frances and Jeanne last year.

Mr Gibson and Tourism Minister Obie
Wilchcombe, the MP for West End, were
in Grand Bahama earlier this week to get
an update on reconstruction efforts, par-



ticularly those underway at West End.

Mr Gibson said a total of $7.8 million
had been spent so far on repairs and the
purchase of supplies for Grand Bahama.

Of that, $7 million accounted for
labour costs, he said.

“We are more than 50 per cent com-
pleted with restoration on Grand
Bahama and we are very pleased with

tures on stills.

the progress at West End,” he said.
Mr Gibson noted that 50 homes are
currently being rebuilt in West End.
He added that a project is underway in
collaboration with the organisation
USAID to build more homes in low
lying areas, and to place waterfront struc-

“We feel this would avoid homes from

flooding and minimise damage caused
by storm surge” Mr Gibson said.

Mr Wilchcombe said the government
has been in discussions with a town plan-
ner to ensure proper planning in the area
in future.

“Many of the homes just appeared.

and so we have to think about where we «
are going to go, particularly if we are

talking about major development in
West End in the future,” he said.

Melvin. Seymour, undersecretary in
the Ministry of Housing, has been over-
seeing the restoration and repair on
Grand Bahama.

He is being reassigned to Nassau as
th new director of the Urban Renewal
Department.

Mr Gibson announced that Jerome
_Godfrey would replace Mr Seymour.

ENM calls for more government
involvement over casino layoffs

@ By RUPERT MISSICK Jr
Chief Reporter

THE Free National Move-

-ment has called for more

“proactive involvement” from
the PLP government in the
abrupt dismissal of 45 employ-
ees from the Isle of Capri Casi-
no in Grand Bahama.

The party claimed it had’

been aware of the possibility
of lay-offs at the casino, and
pointed out that FNM MP for
Lucaya Neko Grant warned
government about the situa-

.tion during his contribution to

the 2005-2006 budget debate
in the House of Assembly last
month.

“At that time the warning
signs included the closure of
the casino’s restaurant, except
for weekends and reports that
the operating company was
losing money.

“Yet through all that time
and in spite of those warning
signs Minister of Tourism Obie

FNM leader Tommy Turn-

Stuart also had difficulty getting into the

“We felt pressured to accept this

that they were told they had no other

He said the group would like to thank Mrs
Griffin and the ministry of Social Services
for having begun to respond to their “serious”
concerns that about the apartment, which
they say is not “disabled friendly.”

Mr Thompson went on to thank the public
for their support.

Response

“Until we started to hear response from
people generally, before the home closed in
June 2005, we did not know what their posi-
tions were in our cause of wanting to keep the
home open, as a disabled friendly facility for -
physically disabled adults,” he said.

“We are now increasingly aware, from com-
ments over the past two weeks in particular,
that many more people are understanding
our cause and are quite distressed over the
way we were evicted out of the home,” he
added.

The former Cheshire residents thanked the
public for their prayers and financial support
over the years.

They also thanked the Bahamas National

Mr Wilchcombe has

government had been blind-

It has been speculated that
further lay-offs are on the hori-

The YMCA sustained severe

30-YEAR-OLD Albert
Archer was charged yester-
day in magistrate’s court
with having sex with a 14-
year-old girl.

Archer, a resident of Jack
Fish Drive, allegedly had sex
with the minor on Thursday,
June 30, according to court
records. |

He was not required to
enter a plea and was granted
$10,000 bail by Magistrate
Roger Gomez in Court 2.

The matter was adjourned
to July 19.

Also in Court 2: :

e Kennedy Kermit Stra-
chan, 39, was charged with
having sex with two minors
in’separate incidents.

. Strachan, a resident of
Fleming Street, allegedly

had sex with a 12-year-ol
girl on Sunday, April 10.’

He was not required to
enter a plea to the charges
and was granted $15,000
bail.

The matter was adjourned
to July 19.

Inspector Ercell Dorsette
prosecuted both cases in
Court 2.

e A 29-year-old Farring-
ton Road man pleaded not
guilty to charges of drug
possession and bribery.

Sean Scavella was alleged-
ly found in possession of 1.5
pounds of marijuana on
Tuesday, July 12 while in the
area of St Agnes Church,
Blue Hill Road.

It is also alleged that Scav-
ella, a resident of Farring-
-ton Road, intended to sup-
ply the drugs to another.
According to the prosecu-
tor at Court 8, the drugs had
an estimated street value of
$1,500.

On that same date, it is
alleged that Scavella, while
in the area of Andros
Avenue, offered two police-
men — Detective Corporal
1908 Rolle and Detective
Constable 2688 Coakley —
$20,000 as inducement from
performing their duties.

Magistrate Carolita
Bethel granted Scavella
$15,000 bail with two
sureties.

The matter was adjourned
to February 7, 2006.

ments made by Sir Jack, who
has demanded a full account-
ing of the fate of the $1 million.

“A concern was raised by a
representative of Grand

Bahama about the condition of

the YMCA. And the prime
minister thought it was very
important for us to come down
and see what sort of assistance
we could render,” said Mr Gib-
son.

“The fact of the matter is
when you look at.what the facil-
ity means for residents of Grand
Bahama we thought it was
important for us to step in at
this stage, he said.

‘Although YMCA officials
have raised $100,000, it is
believed that $400,000 is needed
to complete repairs.

Mr Gibson said the YMCA
had never approached his min-
istry for assistance.

“I am sure if we were

“We have now made a com-
mitment to assist them as much
as possible once we find out
exactly what has to be done in
having that building restored
back to a position that they can
begin to use once again.

Focus

, I think we should not focus
what happened in the past, but
on how quickly we can assist
them. We met with Sir Albert
Miller and Albert Gray and we
are willing to provide some sort
of assistance, but was not sure
how much assistance we could
provide until a complete scope
of the work needed is known,”
he said. ©

Mr Gibson explained that the
$imillion donation was ear-

marked specifically for
educational facilities at the
request of Sir Jack and Mr St
George.

“When you look at the mon-
ey donated by Sir Jack and
Edward St George they said
specifically schools, and'so that
would never have been spent
on the YMCA because it is not
a school,” he said.

Minister of Tourism Obie
Wilchcombe said the govern-
ment has done a significant job
in terms of hurricane restora-
tion on Grand Bahama. He said
millions have been spent to
repair the homes.

“T don’t believe it’s about
what the government did or did
not do.

“The truth of the matter is
when you look at all the work
that was done and is being
done, the government has done
significantly well.”

_ New website
showcases land
=== On Grand Bahama

@ By DENISE MAYCOCK
Tribune Freeport Reporter

FREEPORT - Persons interested in pur-
chasing land in Grand Bahama now have
the opportunity to view available lots
online by logging on to a new and innova-
tive website launched by the Grand
CO Development Company (DEV-
CO).

The website, www.gbdevco.com, offi-
cially went online for the first time on

_ Thursday.

It showcases Grand Bahama Island and
gives details of land slotted by DEVCO for
development and sale to potential clients
and investors around the world.

Responsible

DEVCO is responsible for most of the
land zoned for tourist, commercial and
residential use within the city of Freeport.

As the master developer for Freeport,
DEVCO has developed 40,000 individual
lots in 45 subdivisions and a seven-mile
sea water canal system.

The Grand Bahama Port Authority and
Hutchison Development Bahamas Limited
are also partners with DEVCO in the
development of Grand Bahama.

DEVCO development manager Charles
Pratt said the new website is designed to
improve the level of service the company
provides to customers in the Bahamas and
internationally.

“Jt is our intention to provide potential
customers and potential customers with

greater access to information about Grand
Bahama and this new website is a part of
this ongoing exercise,” he said.

The website, which is designed by
Thyme Design, provides browser access
to.an official locator and land use
map, or C-1 map, which features a
detailed layout of DEVCO’s properties
on. the island.

Each lot can be pinpointed on the map.
While property cannot be purchased
online, general details, such as location,
size, and type of property can be
researched.

Mr Pratt said the easy-to-use search
engine allows searches to be narrowed
down to specific categories, such as indi-
vidual subdivision or price range.

Ed.Rahming, DEVCO financial con-
troller, said 14 residential. sub-divisions
are featured on the website.

He noted that DEVCO is presently
developing new subdivisions such as
Colony Bay and Bristol Bay, which are
also featured.

Mr Pratt said one of Devco’s primary
goals for developing the website is to
attract investors to Grand Bahama.

“We want to provide the world with an
open view of the many attractive land sales
and development opportunities here in
Grand Bahama.”

The website also gives an overview of
local facilities and infrastructure on Grand
Bahama, and includes a special section for
potential investors, a frequently asked
questions page, and an introduction to
DEVCO.

Officers graduate from
Arson ee course

@ By KRISTINA McNEIL

ABOUT 30 police officers
from Nassau and the Family «
Islands graduated from the
first ever Arson Investigation
Course in a ceremony held
yesterday.

The course consisted of a
three-day workshop that
taught officers how to investi-
gate structural and vehicle
fires and how to determine the
cause of a fire.

Power Point presentations
and live practical experience
contributed to the officers’
learning.

Leading Seaman Julian
Smith was the only member of
the Royal Bahamas Defense
Force to take part in the
course.

His participation was
required, but he expressed his
gratitude to the commissioner
of police and commander of
the Defence Force for the
experience.

“In the past the Defence
Force has had a number of
vehicles catch a fire, and one
or two of them was burned
completely,” Mr Smith said.

Sponsored

“This is the first time a
member of the RBDF has par-
ticipated in a course spon-
sored by the police college
and Broward County Sheriff’s
Department.”

ASP Jeffrey Delaveaux said
he was pleased with the semi-
nar and was sure that it was
very rewarding for everyone
who participated in it.

“The commissioner of
police really saw a need for
it,” officer Delaveaux said.
“We have a number of arson
fires that are presently being
investigated, especially vehicle
fires. We see a propensity of
them near Christmas.

“There is a large volume of
vehicles that are being
destroyed by fire and they

point directly to arson: This °°" *"

seminar helped the officers to
become more knowledgeable
to pinpoint fires that have .
happened accidentally or that
were intentionally set,” he
said.

Mr Delaveaux explained
that the seminar was a timely
one as it took place shortly
atter the fire that destroyed
the airport at San Andros.

The visiting officials from
the Broward County Sheriffs
Office and Florida State Fire
Marshal’s Office were able to
go over to have a look at it.

Cable Bahamas
announces refinements

i)

to bas

CABLE Bahamas has
announced several refine-
ments to the basic cable
television packages in New
Providence, Grand
Bahama, Abaco and
Eleuthera beginning this
August through September.

According to a company
representative, several new
channels, including the Dis-
covery Channel, Food Net-
work, and Tempo, a new
Caribbean-focused music
network, will be added to
basic cable.

Currently

Sci-Fi and E! Entertain-
ment Television, while cur-
rently on basic cable in
Grand Bahama, Abaco and
Nassau, will become part of
the basic package for all
four islands.

When the changes are
complete all customers on
the four islands will have
identical basic cable pack-
ages for the first time.

Director of marketing

and pay-per-view David
Burrows said Eleuthera
customers will see a near-
complete revamp of their
basic cable package.

In addition to the chan-
nel changes, basic cable will
be realigned so that chan-
nels offering similar pro-
gramming genres are

c cable packages

Several new
channels will
be added to
subscribers in
four islands

grouped together. “For
example, if you are follow-
ing a news story it will be
easier to surf from one
news channel to the next
using your remote control.
With the major networks,
family and children’s chan-
nels grouped together, it
will be easier and faster to
find just what you want.”

Upgrade

Cable Bahmas said the
changes are possible
because of a recently com-
pleted $2 million technical
upgrade investment in the
company’s broadband sig-
nal processing facility in
Nassau.

A detailed overview of
the revised basic channel
list will soon be posted to
the company’s website,
www.cablebahamas.com.

Maturation observed
as Bahamas celebrates
its 32nd anniversary

- [2s been well said -°

that time heals all ills.
The truth of this fact is clearly
revealed when one compares
the mood of this country — as
it celebrated its first anniver-
sary of nationhood some 32
years ago — with all that has
transpired similarly in that

‘regard this past week.

To fully appreciate the
degree of maturation by
Bahamians generally that has
occurred during the past three
decades, one has to reflect
upon the temperament of a
vast number of Bahamians
toward the concept of nation-
al sovereignty for this archi-
pelago when the notion of
change from British colonial
status was first proffered some
two years before its actual
“attainment on July 10, 1973.

Unfortunately, just three

. Short years after majority rule
was attained in the Bahamas
in 1967, a split occurred in the
governing Progressive Liberal
Party (PLP). This. division
took place when eight of its
parliamentary members —
including four Cabinet Minis-
_ters —joined opposition Unit-

Independence did not garner
much support from the older
members of the party at that
time.

Following their expulsion
from the PLP, those eight men
at first formed a political enti-
ty known as the Free PLP,
under which banner they con-
tested the bye-election in
Andros in 1971 brought about
following the death of incum-
bent Mr Clarence A Bain.
That election was also con-
tested by the UBP. Mr Darrell
Rolle emerged as the victori-
ous PLP candidate. Shortly
afterwards, the Free PLP
merged with the UBP to form
the Free National Movement
(FNM).

It was not too long there-
after that the PLP began its
move for Bahamian Indepen-
dence, which was met with

strong opposition from the:

FNM and its supporters. So
intense was some pockets of

fidence, moved by Labour

member Mr Randol Fawkes

against Prime Minister Lyn-
den O Pindling in the House
of Assembly. The Govern-

ed by Mr Cecil Wal-
lace-Whitfield, these

men, who later became known .

as the, Dissident Eight, were

subsequently expelled from: 1
the PLP at its convention’

shortly thereafter in October
1970. Other members of the
group included the following:
Messrs Arthur Foulkes, War-
ren Levarity, Elwood Don-
aldson, George Thompson,
Curtis McMillan, James Shep-
herd and Maurice Moore.
Some of these men, as
young Turks, had been advo-

cating Independence for the’

Bahamas since the early

‘1960s, while members of the |

National Committee for Posi-
tive Action (NCPA), an action
group within the PLP. It
should be noted that their

enthusiasm for Bahamian



opposition to Independence
at the time that a secessionist
movement was spawned in
Abaco, whose members advo-
cated their desire to.remain
within the British colonial
structure.

The unfortunate outcome
of all this opposition was that
Independence became such a
partisan political issue. Thus,
the ensuing September 19,
1972 General Election was
contested as a virtual referen-

for: the Bahamas.

The PLP

thereafter introduced to the
Bahamian populace a Green
Paper on Independence. After
widespread dissemination, this
was followed by the issuance
of a White Paper that outlined
all the details concerning Inde-
pendence.

Not too long afterwards, the
proposed Independence leg-

‘islation was debated and

passed in the House of
Assembly and Senate, follow-
ing which the Independent
nation known as the Com-
monwealth of the Bahamas
came into being on July 10,
1973, seconds after midnight.

MACKEY

Thus, following a spectacular
ceremony at Clifford Park on
that occasion, our nation was
born when the Union Jack
was lowered for the final time
and our own black, gold and
aquamarine flag was initially
raised.

However, following a bitter
election campaign the previ-
ous year on the issue of
national sovereignty, Inde-
pendence. came to a divided
country and, for quite some
time in the years following, its
celebration was regarded —
and treated — as a PLP event
rather than as a national his-
toric occasion. But, as was
stated earlier, time has a way
of healing all ills. This fact was
clearly observed at this year’s
celebration of our nation’s
32nd anniversary:

he appreciable degree

of maturation as a
united and sovereign people
has — over the past three
decades — been a gradual
process. During this time, we
have seen the peaceful trans-
fer of governmental leader-
ship from the PLP to the FNM
on August 19, 1992 and back
to the PLP on May 2, 2002. In
the process, we have seen two
former law partners change
places as Prime Ministers of
the Commonwealth of the

Bahamas in-the persons ‘of **:
» Hubert A Ingraham and Per-

ry G Christie.

Over these past 32 years, we
have produced a Bahamian
Archbishop of the Anglican
Province of the West Indies, in
the. person of His Grace the
Rt Rev Drexel Gomez, and a
Bahamian Archbishop of the
Roman Catholic Church in
this area also, in the person of
His Grace the Rt Rev Patrick
Pinder.

In sports, we have produced
Olympic champions such as

our Golden Girls (Pauline .

Davis Thompson, Eldece
Clarke Lewis, Savatheda
Fynes, Chandra Sturrup and
Debbie Ferguson) and more

recently Tonique Williams-

Darling. We have even pro-
duced a United States Open
tennis champion in Mark
Knowles. All of these athletes
have become our national
heroes, having brought great
international recognition to
our beloved little country, and
— in the process — given us all

more reason for being proud -

to be Bahamian.

So great has been our matu-
rity as a sovereign people that,
a few years ago, our former
High Commissioner to Great
Britain and distinguished
diplomat Sir Arthur Foulkes
admitted on national radio
that the FNM’s opposition to
Independence in 1973 was not
borne out of any misgivings
about national sovereignty,
but was rather due to the fact
that they did not wish to see it

attained under the Pindling

administration. In this regard,

Sir Arthur spoke for thou-
sands of others who now iden-

tify themselves as being proud —

Bahamians.

Thus, when one looks at all
the flags, bunting and other.
trappings that so beautifully
adorned government build-
ings, churches, business estab-

lishments, private homes and °
roundabouts throughout this ..

island over the Independence
holiday weekend, one could
almost touch the patriotism
and national pride they depict-

ed and exuded — although
intangible in nature. So great |

has been our maturation as.a

people over these past 32 .

years.

Finally, we were privileged

to have entertained some vis-

their concurrence when we.

Body of missing
woman is discovered

FROM page one

In an interview with The Tri-
‘bune Mrs Curtis' mother,
Wescola Larrimore, and her
istep father, Tribune employee

ouglas Larrimore, said they
lidentified her body around 11
am Friday.
i "I could not recognise her.

;she don’t have no face," Mrs
tLarrimore said. She said that
all that was left was a facial
:skeleton as though acid had
ibeen poured on her face so that
ighe would not be recognised.
; i "T recognised her by a heart-
‘shaped tattoo on her thigh —

er hair even fell off her head,"
igaid her mother.

"Her whole body was burnt
from the sun, all her flesh was
black and burnt. And there
were maggots on her body,"
said her mother.

According to reports, Mrs
Curtis was found bent over in a
kneeling. position, her face to
the ground. She was naked. Her
beige coloured security uniform,
which was not torn, was found
next to the body with a screw-
driver and a knife.

The Larrimores said they
learned that their daughter was
missing when her husband told
them she was not at home and
had not reported for work.

He told them he had gone
twice to Paradise Island to look

for her. "I asked him how could
she be missing and it hasn’t
been two or three hours yet,"
Mrs Larrimore said.

Around 12.30pm Saturday,
Mr Curtis went to ZNS to speak
with reporter Clint Watson. Mr
Watson confirmed that Mr Cur-
tis had arrived at the station to
put a missing persons notice on
the air.

Mr Watson asked Mr Curtis
whether he had filed a police
report. Mr Curtis said he had.
Mr Watson said he investigated
Mr Curtis’ claim, but was told
that no report had been filed.

"I told him we would have to
wait for Tuesday, as she could
not be declared missing before

‘Two-week
extension
for MPs to
pay lawyer

FROM page one

Mr Stubbs, MP for Holy.Cross; and Mr Stubbs,

MP for Mount Moriah, owes his law firm thou-
sands of dollars.

Mr Munroe told The Tribune yesterday
that after speaking with Mr Smith, who
acts as Mr Stubbs’ lawyer, he was
referred to another attorney.

As a result of those discussions he said
he has decided to give the two MPs an
extension.

“(The extension was given) out of
courtesy and practicality. You just don’t
go precipitously to. court if you can deal

| With an issue in private. It occupies the

court’s time, and in two weeks hopefully
we will have the matter resolved,” said
Mr Munroe.

Asked if he. was confident that the debt
would be paid in two weeks, Mr Munroe
responded: “I don’t know, but if not the
courts are not going anywhere.”

The Tribune was unable to contact Mr
Smith on Friday. ;

Mr Smith had said previously that

despite Mr Munroe’s assertion that he
and Mr Stubbs owed $6,600 and $30,000
in court fees, respectively, the payment
ordered by the Court of Appeal was nev-
er certified.

Therefore, according to Mr Smith, he
is not obliged to pay the fee.

However, Mr Munroe said that his law
firm will be seeking to enforce the pay-

‘ ment.of the court costs owed by the two

members of parliament.

However, Mr Munroe could not say
when the applications would be filed. “I
know that up until Friday of last week
they had begun drawing up what are
called the debtor summons.to serve on
them.”

When Chief Justice Sir Burton Hall
annulled the order of bankruptcy in the
case of Mr Stubbs, Mr Munroe said his
firm extended 21 days to the MP from
that point. This time expired sometime in
May.

Mr Munroe was the attorney for Gina
Gonzales, whose suit against Mr Stubbs
brought about the bankruptcy proceed-
ings against the Holy Cross MP.

48 hours. Mr Curtis casually left,
promising to return on Tues-
day," he said.

And then the dreams started,
promoting the Larrimore fami-
ly to organize search parties to
search the sites suggested by the
dreams.

Mts Larrimore said she was
told that one of Mr Curtis’ aunts
had a dream "where the spirit

showed Romanda tied down on -

the side of a pink building in
the bushes."

The Larrimores said that
because of this the family
searched the bushes on Paradise
Island for almost a week around
a pink building near "Roman-
da's security booth."

Then on Thursday morning
Mr Curtis' father dreamt "that
Manda was through a corner by
the hospital in a bushy area."
Again Romanda’s family and
friends organised a search party.

. This time they went to the

Sands Road. area. It was there
that the body was discovered..

"I want answers, I want to
know what happened, I ask

.God to bring Manda home safe,

‘but he carried her to Him safe,"
said Mrs Larrimore.

Ricardo Curtis was arrested
by officers of the Central Detec-
tive Unit Thursday evening
when he arrived at the area
where his wife’s body was dis-
covered. Before his arrival both
families were locked in an

" uproar of suspicion and angry

accusations.

"Although everything is
pointing at Ricky, I don’t want
to hear hearsay, I want the facts
because a killer could still be

"I want the real killer to suf-

When The Tribune attempted to interview the owners of

However, the company did issue a press release following the
demonstration, stating that they regretted having to fire the 20
staff members, but the company had lost a portion of a contract
with one of its major clients.

“These were valued staff members Shioi we were forced to

: ‘-VMG Bahamas triathletes
ee ‘travelled to the Big Apple over
- Independence weekend and put
-ontremendous performances at
‘the 2005 Ford New York City
Triathlon.

-Mark Holowesko claimed sec-
ond in his division with an over-
alltime of 2:13:08. Holowesko
‘could not have asked for a better
start to the race. He put in his
second best swim time ever,
emerging out of the water tenth
overall.

Basil Goulandris, who has had
stellar performances throughout
the season, put in yet another
top level finish, coming sixth in
his Division of 250 athletes.
Overall, Goulandris’ time put
him in the top two per cent of
the huge field.

Competing in the Elite Divi-
sion, VMG teammate Bucky
Schafer had an all-round power-
ful race, finishing 17th in his divi-
sion and overall. .

Holowesko, the founder of

He spoke with enthusiasm and

“great, great athletes.”

Holowesko said. “It was a real-
ly good race for each of us and I
am very proud of our results.”

Holowesko was also pretty
pleased with his own feat. The
swim portion of the NYC
Triathlon was held in the Hud-
son River. Conditions were fair-
ly choppy and the current quite
strong.

“Being Bahamian,”
Holowesko said, “I wasn’t put
off by the water conditions, as a
lot of the other competitors were.
I knew if I. swam right I could

- use the conditions to my advan-

tage.” That turned out to be an
understatement as Holowesko
beat 1,790 of the 1,800 competi-

’ tors in the event out of the water.

Spoiled by the pristine waters
of the Bahamas, Holowesko has
said on more than: one occasion

that one of the biggest motiva- -

tions for him in the swim por-
tions of triathlons is simply “to
get out of the water as quickly as
possible.”

And he joked, “I only hit one
branch along the route in the
Hudson River.”

Goulandris added

Although disappointed that he

pleased with his performance.
He was also able to use the cur-
rent in the river to his advantage
for 13th place in his division.
Goulandris had a strong bike,
passing 100 competitors on the
course.

The Ford New York City
Triathlon falls in the Sprint

Davis we woe
for the Bahama:

@ By BRENT STUBBS
Senior Sports Reporter



DESPITE a gutsy performance from top seed
Marvin Rolle, the Bahamas finds itself in a 0-2
hole against Colombia in the second round of
the American Zone II Davis Cup tie.

In the opening singles matches played yes-
terday at the America Tennis Club in Bogota,
Colombia, Rolle took Colombia’s No.2 seed
Pablo Gonzalez to the wire, losing 3-6, 6-2, 6-2,
3-6, 6-2.

Then in the second match played, Bahamas’
No.2 seed Devin. Mullings was defeated by
Colombia’s No.1 seed Alejandro Falla in three
straight sets, 6-4, 6-2, 6-3.

“I think they gave it a good effort,” said
Bahamas Lawn Tennis Association’s president
Mary Shelley, who was among the small group
of Bahamian spectators in the stands. “I think
they played well.”

Looking at Rolle’s match, Shelley said she
felt “he gave a gutsy performance. I was very
pleased with the way he played. It was a very
good match.”

Shelley, however, said there were one or two
points that separated Rolle from winning the
match. When he had the opportunity to put
away Gonzalez, he didn’t do it.

“He was having some problems physically,”
she admitted. “So he wasn’t able to play as well
as he’s capable of playing. I think he should
have won his match.”

As for Mullings’ match, Shelley said Falla
rode the momentum of Gonzalez and he played
a very smart match. Falla, according to Shelley,
never allowed Munnings to get into the match.

“After the first set, he had some problems
breathing,” Shelley noted.

“But it was a hard fought match. I think he
gave it his best.”

Shelley said Munnings came into Bogota not
at full strength and it has carried over in his
match. But she feels that if he can get sufficient
rest today, he should be better prepared for
the reverse singles on Sunday.

“I feel he can beat Gonzalez,” Shelley reflect-
ed. “I think he just needs to be well rested.”

Today Rolle will team up with Ryan Sweeting
to play in the pivotal doubles. The Bahamas
will have to win in order to extend the tie
through Sunday.

Doubles

If the Bahamas loses the doubles, the order of
play for the reverse singles could change on
Sunday. Sweeting and H’Cone Thompson, the
other member of the team, could end up playing
as their matches won’t make a difference.

But Shelley isn’t conceding defeat just
yet. ;

“T honestly believe that we can win the dou-
bles,” she projected. “We have a good team in
Marvin and Ryan who play very well together.”

The Colombians’ top seeded players are all
ranked, whereas both of the Bahamian play-
ers only have one ATP computer point each,
which makes it even more difficult.

However, Shelley noted that the crowd has
been very supportive of the Bahamian players
and that has helped to keep the team in high
spirits.

“It’s a tough tie, but we’re trying our best,”
Shelley summed up.

Team captain John Farrington, Rolle and
Munnings were practising at presstime and were
unavailable for comment.

John Todd Basketball ¢ Cam. ,



gets 21st event underway

#@ By RENALDO DORSETT
Junior Sports Reporter

FOR more than two
decades, one local basketball
coach, teacher and enthusiast
has continued to extend his
services to the country's youth
without any signs of slowing
down.

The 21st annual John Todd
Basketball Camp got under-
way on Tuesday at the St.
Augustine's College Campus,
with over 30 youngsters eager-
ly anticipating over a week of
basketball tutelage.

The camp, which is open to
boys and girls aged 6-14, will
continue until July 22nd.

One of the oldest summer
basketball camps in existence,
the John Todd Basketball
Camp places on keen empha-
sis on teaching its athletes the
history of Bahamian basket-
ball.

Emphasis on teaching history of
Bahamian involvement in the sport

Camp Director John Todd
said he has seen his camp
grow in leaps and bounds over
two decades.

Prepare

"When we first started the
camp in 1985 we had around
15 campers," he said. “Now
when we prepare for camp we
usually anticipate about 60
kids."

Todd said his camp attempts
to limit numbers in order to
give campers individual atten-
tion.

As always, the camp will
focus on physical basketball
and technical skills so campers
can learn to play the game
while simultaneously learning
about it.

“Every instructor we have
is a teacher, we don't have any
students teaching basketball,"
he said. "We have coaches
here that are also officials so

these kids will learn how to.

play the game the right way."
Todd said his camp prides
itself on pushing Bahamian

_ basketball icons to the fore-

front rather than placing NBA

players on pedestals as so
many young athletes do.

Outstanding

"Our object here is to pro-
mote outstanding Bahamian
basketball players. We try to
teach you about Bahamian
legends like Sharon Storr,
Mychal Thompson, Sterling
Quant, Dexter Cambridge and
so forth," he said. “They are
the ones who kept basketball
in this country alive over a
long period of time."

In the past, the camp has

featured NBA pros Spud
Webb and Dominique
Wilkins.

"This camp doesn't cater to
bringing in NBA players or
big international names, but
if we do happen to get them
here it's a bonus," he said.

Todd said focusing his camp
on the development of
younger players will ensure
the improvement of basket-
ball across the country.

"If you reach the younger
kids, then the game as a whole
will benefit. Back when mini
basketball was more promi-

nent, for the younger players,
our camp had the best talent
in the country," he said,
"We want to develop good
ball handling and shooting

- habits as early as possible.

To ensure campers gain as
much basketball knowledge
as possible and have fun at the
same time, Todd said his camp
features a number of head on
competitions in various bas-
ketball disciplines.

Prizes will be given
to campers for winning
various competitions exhibit-
ing the best lay-up, jump shot,
and free throw shooting
skills.

Other awards given to
campers will-include, Mest
Improved Player, Best Defen-
sive Player, and Most Out-
standing Player.

The camp features a num-

i By RENALDO DORSETT
Junior Sports Reporter



ONE National Basketball Associa-
tion franchise is extending its resources
to help Bahamian youth with funda-
mental basketball skills and encour-
age reading.

The Miami Heat, in conjunction
with FedEx, American Airlines and
Gatorade, will host the Miami Heat
"Shoot for the Stars" Summer 2005
Books and Basketball Clinics today at
the A.F. Adderley Gymnasium at 9am.

The Bahamas is the second of three
Caribbean stops for the organisation,
which conducted clinics in Puerto Rico
last weekend and will visit Trinidad
later this month.

The contingent is led by Heat for-

ward Rasual Butler and Heat Com-
' munity. Affairs Liason and former
NBA star Wali Jones.

The clinic was created to help inner
city youth in South Florida, Latin
America and the Caribbean under-
stand the importance of reading and
education in a festive basketball envi-
ronment they can relate to.

The clinic will provide instructional:

lessons, motivational speaking and
tutelage in fundamental basketball
skills.

Following their on-the-court train-
ing, the youngsters will participate in
the NBA/Miami Heat “Read to
Achieve” initiative which helps chil-
dren realise the importance of read-
ing and encourages adults to read with
children.

Benefits

Jones, who has participated in
Bahamian basketball clinics regularly
for the past 17 years, said this endeav-
our is particularly important because it
strongly promotes educational bene-
fits.

He first visited the Bahamas con-
ducting basketball clinics alongside
Mychal Thompson, Osborne Lockhart
and Deputy Prime Minister, Cynthia
"Mother" Pratt and he says "Shoot for
the Stars" is not your average summer
basketball clinic.

"It's important to realise the Shoot
for the Stars Basketball Clinic isn't just
about basketball," he said. "It's about
getting kids around the world to realise
the importance of reading."

Jones said kids can relate better to
professional athletes because most kids
look up to them and are more recep-
tive to their message.

"The kids know and can identify
with these professional athletes," he
said. "So they will listen more atten-
tively when they see players like Rasu-
al, Shaquille or Dwayne Wade tell
them how important it is to learn how
to read."

Jones said the clinic will serve some-
what as a relationship building process
for coaches and officials here, in
‘order for the program to be able to
continue.

"That's why we get to know these
coaches," he said. "What we're doing is
teaching process skills, nurturing skills,
and teaching skills so this program can
live on for more than one day."

Butler, a key reserve in the Miami
Heat's run at the NBA championship,

, said he supports the program because.

of three very important factors in his
life; education, basketball and reaching



out to inner city youth.

"I came from the inner-city myself,
in Philadelphia, so I know how hard it
can be sometimes," he said. "If it was-
n't for basketball, a kid like myself
would not have had the opportunity
to get an education."

The three-year-veteran, who aver-
aged 6.5 points and 2.3 rebounds per

game last season, said he used basket-
ball as a vehicle to gain an education
and hopes he can help others do the
same.

"Kids need to learn that there is a
life after basketball," he said, "And
they need someone to help them
understand that reading is the most
important fundamental skill for a suc-

ami Heat’s ‘Shoot for the
Stars’ clinic is an educatic

cessful life."

Butler said coming from humble
beginnings will help him to relate to
local children.

He said the youngsters attending the
clinic can expect to learn a number of
skills, including his trademark jump-
shot.

ing with young kids and that’s a diajor
reason why I'm here."

The Heat Organisation also visited
sick children at the Princess Margaret
Hospital yesterday and hosted a bas-
ketball clinic for children in the St.
Cecilia constituency.
