Police investigate |

after shootings —

@ By TIFFANY GRANT and
DENISE MAYCOCK
Tribune Staff Reporters

THE discovery of two bod-
ies in a hotel room at Bimini
Saturday has residents con-
cerned .and police conducting
an extensive investigation.

The bodies of Bernhard
Bolzano, 34, and Barbara Frelln
von Perfall; 32, both of Austria,
who arrived in Bimini on Thurs-
day for a short visit, were dis-
covered around 12.36pm in
Room 6 at the Blue, Water

Resort and marina in Alice -

Town, Bimini. Both had been
shot to death.

It was reported that a maid
discovered the bodies when she
went to clean the room. The
couple’s hotel’ room door was
locked, however the sliding
door, although closed, was not

‘locked.

Mr Bolzano’s hands were tied
behind his back. He was found
on the floor.

Ms von Perfall was found on
one of the two beds with a
wound to the head, and a bullet
wound to the stomach.

‘According to an employee at

‘ the Anchorage Hotel, the cou-

ple was scheduled to check-out
that morning.

Police are trying to deter-
mine the motive for the shoot-
ing. However, it does not
appear to be a robbery. Accord-
ing to reports, a “nice watch”
was still on the bureau in the
room.

The two bodies were flown
to Nassau, where an autopsy
will be performed.

A team of officers from‘Nas-
sau and Grand Bahama is in
Bimini investigating the deaths.

Assistant Commissioner of
Police Reginald Ferguson, who
flew to Bimini yesterday morn-
ing, returning to Nassau later
that day, said the police will

‘hold a press conference this

morning to make an official
statement.

Minister of Tourism Obie
Wilchcombe, MP for Bimini,
told The Tribune that he will
not comment on the matter if it
will affect the tourist industry.

“Any incident, whether a
homicide or poor behaviour,
can hurt the industry,” he said.

is arrested

at airport

AN American visitor was arrested at Nassau
International Airport shortly after 11am yesterday
as he checked in to catch a flight back to his home
in Los Angles.

According to police, a small quantity of marijua-
na was found. ,

The visitor was taken into police custody.

Police are also investigating two armed robberies.
Assistant Commissioner of Police Reginald Fer-

guson said that Narron Pratt of Colony Village was .

held up by a gunman. He told police that he had
been robbed of $580.

At 9.35pm Saturday a merchant of the Olde
Towne Mali Marine station was held up by a gun-
man and robbed of an undetermined amount of
cash.

THE introduction of the Voice over
Internet protocol could cut the profits
of Bahamas Telecommunications
Company by at least $45 million,
according to Works and Utilities Min-

- ister Bradley Roberts.

The VoIP technology, which allows
users to make long distance calls over
the Internet, is a considerable chal-
lenge to the company, he said.

A Sunday guest on Parliament
Street, Mr Roberts told hosts Fayne
Thompson and Anthony Delaney that
there is no way BTC would be able to
compete with VoIP.

He explained that while most long
distance rates are around 99 cents for
three minutes, VoIP offers rates of
one or two cents per minute. Such low .
fares can be offered because the com-
pany has no operating costs.

“How can you deal with a company

which has no operating cost?” he

asked.

Mr Roberts said there is no way to
recapture that market share. He not-
ed that BTC’s profits from long dis-
tance calls are around $90 million.

Ifimplemented VoIP could cut that
profit in half. “That is a serious mat-
ter,” said Mr Roberts. :

This month ‘most active’
for any storm season

@ By CARA BRENNEN
Tribune Staff Reporter
JULY, 2005 has been the

most active month for any
storm season, said Bahamian



meteorologist Geoffrey
Greene,
He warned Bahamians that





they cannot lower their guard
when it comes to hurricane pre-

“This month has been the
most active ever,” he said. At
the moment, Mr Greene said
his department is monitoring
two tropical storms, Franklin
and Gert.

According to Mr Greene,
tropical storm Franklin is slow-
ly making its way toward
Bermuda and should pose no
threat to the Bahamas unless
it makes a southern loop back.

Meanwhile, tropical depres-
sion Gert appears to be head-
ing straight toward Mexico. It
was expected to make landfall
last night. That country is
expected to experience heavy
rainfall along its coast.

Conditions
Mr Greene § said the

Bahamas might experience
some weather conditions such
as thunderstorms as.a result of
the systems, but should not
have a direct hit. However, he
stressed that the Met office
continues to monitor these
storms closely:

He warned the public against
falling into a false sense of secu-
rity, and said Bahamians must
ensure that they have the nec-
essary precautions in place such
as hurricane shutters, flash-

lights, batteries radios, food and
medical supplies.
~-“Weneed-Bahamians: to be

on alert, in case the country

experiences a direct hit.”

said.

predicted that the 2005 season

three being intense — category

Morley is

laid to rest

@ By CARA BRENNEN
Tribune Staff Tabane Staft Reporter: _ —



HUNDREDS of family and
friends gathered at St Matthew’s
Anglican Church Saturday after-
noon for the funeral of Bahamian
real estate pioneer John R Morley.

Mr Morley, 72, died at his Mon-
tagu foreshore home on Sunday
after suffering from a brain
tumour. He had been ill for nine
months.

Persons from all walks of life
and political affiliations filled the
church as dozens more strained to
hear from speakers outside.

While the congregation
acknowledged the many accom-
plishments he made in his profes-
sional life as head of Morley Real-
ty, notably his partnership in
Marathon Mall and the develop-
ment of Westridge Estates and
South Westridge, it was his role
as husband, father and friend that
persons remembered most fondly.

His youngest daughter Sara
Morley, described the incredible
bond she and her father shared,
saying that he had always been
her hero. She said her father was
always there for all of his children
and cherished each one. -

She also said that her father had
passed his love for his country and
fascination with the water on to
her. Her sister Tara said that while
it might appear tragic to lose a
father so young, she preferred the
21 years she had with him to 100
years with another man for a

father. She spoke of the love her
parents, married for 23 years,
shared and said she was very lucky
to have grown up in such a won-
derful home.

Passion

As tributes given by his closest
friends revealed, Mr Morley’s
great passion was fishing and the
beautiful waters of the Bahamas.
Printed:on the last page of the
funeral booklet was a picture of
Mr Morley on his boat with the
simple words underneath, “Gone
Fishing.”

Godfrey Kelly said of his friend,
“his was a life well lived and ful-
filled”, and spoke of Mr Morley’s
fierce determination and persis-
tence when he believed he was
right. ,

Sir Geoffrey Johnstone, one of
his closest friends, said no one
loved the Bahamas more than

together and said he will be sorely

ered you a friend, you were a
friend regardless of political per-
suasion as evidenced by his close
friendship with staunch PLP sup-
porter Franklyn Wilson. The two
were tennis partners and Mr Wil-

funeral.

Friends

Others who, paid tribute were
Ronald Lightbourn and Vincent
D’Aguilar’s son, who spoke on
behalf of his father who is in Lon-

don. Mr Morley and Mr D’Aguilar °

were friends from childhood.

In his sermon, Anglican Arch-
bishop Drexel Gomez, noted that
Mr Morley’s life was fulfilled
because he knew God and made
hima part of his life.

The Bahamas
and its ‘strange
acquaintances’

EDITOR, The Tribune.

THE Bahamas is fast
approaching 300 years of
Democratic rule, but with the
election of the Progressive
Liberal Party (PLP) in 2002,
and the appointment of Mr.
Fred Mitchell as Minister of
Foreign Affairs, and Mr.
Leslie Miller as Minister of
Trade and Industry, the coun-
try has taken a deliberate turn
away from its. traditional
friends.

It is well known that there

is a pervasive anti-United
States sentiment throughout

' the Caribbean and with the

push to join the Caribbean
Single Market and Economy
(CSME), The Bahamas
appears to be quietly forging
stronger relationships with
like Cuba,
Venezuela and China.

Let’s take a brief look at
recent developments:

1. The Bahamas accepted a
$30,000,000 gift from the Chi-
nese for a National Stadium.

2. The Bahamas is getting
set to open Embassies in Cuba
and China.

3. The Minister of Tiade
and Industry has reportedly
signed The Bahamas onto an
oil deal with Venezuela to get
“cheaper oil” on credit.

On the surface these seem
like reasonable arrangements,
but what’s going on behind the
scenes?

First, as a result of the
“sift” from the Chinese, the
country now feels “pressured”
over its reported decision to
support Japan for a permanent
seat at the United Nations
Security Council because the
Chinese see the Japanese as

their adversary.

Second, it is mooted that
we need Embassies in Cuba
and China because:

1. We may have hundreds*

of Bahamians in Cuba at any
given time.

2. We need to keep a closer
eye on Cuba’s fast developing
tourism market, and.

3. The Government is
encouraging Bahamian entre-
preneurs to do business in Chi-
na to take advantage of the
low cost suppliers there.

However, the high costs to
fund and operate these
Embassies might be better
spent here at home. Maybe
The Bahamas Government
should consider a less expen-
sive option like a representa-
tive office in each country
rather than such grandiose

- plans.

And third, The Bahamas
Government has chosen to do
business with a Venezuelan
leader, who is trying to lead
an anti-American coalition,
without any public consulta-
tion, or allegedly the approval
of the Cabinet.

It would also seem prudent

' that the Attorney General’s

Office review the “oil deal” to
ensure it does not conflict with
The Constitution or other
treaties the country might
have signed.

It is interesting to note that
the Energy Cooperation
Agreement PetroCaribe does

not.guarantee a savings on the

price of oil below the market

A scientifically flawed position’

This same old group — very few of them in
numbers probably no more than 10-20 in total
— are challenging, objecting and manifesting
“their” argument over everything whether or |
not there is an advantage to the proposal whilst
doing absolutely nothing to correct the obvious.
' When last did these same folk object to:Nor-
man Solomon and Attorney Jeannie Thomp-
son’s Ardastra Gardens?

As many writers to The Tribune have over
the weeks indicated if these same professional
objectors would actually do something other
than object in writing to everything they might

Alternative for the Americas
(ALBA) seems no less convo-
luted than the political
arrangements of -' the
Caribbean Single Market and
Economy (CSME) or even the
Free Trade Area of The
Americas (FTAA). This is a
major foreign policy decision
that requires careful consider-
ation.

While it is desirable to have
good relations with ail nations,
and in true Libertarian spirit,
the best defence is to have no
enemies, it seems only logical
that The Bahamas, a nation
with a proud history of democ-
racy, would choose to improve
our relations with those
nations that have been our tra-
ditional base of support and
not become entangled with
dictators’ schemes or the Com-
munist doctrine.

Minister of Trade who appear |
to believe they are adept

-enough to play other countries

off against the United States.
’ Why. they would choose to
do this in the first place is yet
unknown, but maybe it will
become self evident with the
passage of time.

In: the meantime, our
strange acquaintances may
leave The Bahamas swimming
in the deep water with the
sharks rather than preserving
The Bahamas independence
and democracy.

By all means weep for London
— but don’t excuse Tony Blair

A FEW days after the
terrorist atrocity that

rocked London on the 7th of
July, a matronly Nigerian
woman, dressed in her tradi-

the whereabouts of her son,

:.whom was displayed behind
her, Mrs Miriam Fatayi-

the: motives, and deplore the
»senselessness of an act of terror
‘that she well knew had proba-

’ Comparing the acts of the
. terrorists with the noble, non-
violent, and ultimately suc-
“cessful, campaigns of Mandela
‘and Gandhi, she questioned

how the attackers could fur-
ther their cause by killing and
maiming innocent people of all
nations, religions and back-
grounds. As a Nigerian
Catholic, married to a Muslim,
she was well placed to ask
these questions.

Hers was, on account of its
eloquence, its pathos, and its
signification of the random and
unselective nature of the
attacks, perhaps the most
poignant expression of the
senselessness and cruelty of the
attacks that most Londoners
will remember.

But no sooner had Mrs.

the politicians were competing
to outdo one another in repeat-

as well as Ken Livingstone, the

dangerous state of the world

today.

denial of the context of the
event is based upon a most
simple-minded fallacy. That
fallacy holds that the moment
some nutcase decides to use an
evil, terroristic tactic, this event
breaks the chain of causation
between western policy and the

anger, much of it justified, that

it provokes around the world.

It is, of course, only when
that violence comes home,
rather than just featuring on
news broadcasts from “over
there”, that the supporters of
the fallacy feel the need to
expend political energy driving
it home. Thus, in Britain imme-
diately following the terror
attacks, the government was
out in force repeating the old
line about those who hate west-
ern values, rather than taking

the opportunity to face the
arguments of those — inside the
west as well as out — who sim-
ply hate western policy and
what it does to others.
Strangely, then, it was with
apparent disbelief that the
British government learned
over last weekend what 75 per
cent of British people (and pos-
sibly 100 per cent of British
garden wildlife) already knew:
that Blair’s aggression in Iraq is
responsible for creating and
enhancing the conditions in
which terror of the sort visited
on London can thrive. This was
the conclusion of a report by
the widely respected Chatham

House, an organisation that’

cannot lightly be dismissed by
anyone, much less a govern-
ment that so regularly defers
to it.

|: describing his “aston-
ishment” at the conclu-
sion of the report, Jack Straw,
the Foreign Secretary,
appeared to suggest that no
right-minded fanatical madman
could actually be motivated by

anything in the real world

when it came to deciding
where, when and upon whom,
to carry out his madness. Noth-
ing done in Baghdad, Basra or
Gaza could actually undermine

the safety of innocent Lon- -

doners. What nonsense!
Whatever the spark, it is

clear that politics is, by defini-

tion, the fuel for political vio-



The justified sense of anger
around the world at the
policies of the west in places
like Iraq must stand
independently of what a few
demented individuals chose
(unilaterally) to do in

outrage.

supposed expression of that



lence. In seeking to deny this
motivation, and replace it with
a supposedly potent perversion
of Islam, Mr. Blair displays a
shocking ignorance of western
history, as well as of Islam

(here in London he is being -

dubbed “Sheikh Tony Blair”
in some papers for his laugh-
able attempts to interpret
Islamic jurisprudence).

Guy Fawkes, John Wilkes
Booth and the Cato Street
plotters, whatever their per-
sonal psychologies, are all fig-
ures whose historical explana-
tion lay in political events of
their day.

That the cause of none of
these men would be judged to
have been right by modern
standards is a matter that
stands independently of the
repugnant tactics they used to
further it.

Similarly, the justified sense
of anger around the world at
the policies of the west in
places like Iraq must stand
independently of what a few
demented individuals chose
(unilaterally) to do in supposed

* expression of that outrage.

Fk: every crazed and -
imbalanced young man

seeking martyrdom, there are
many balanced, intelligent
voices calling Mr Blair to
account for having dragged his
country into one of the most
disgraceful and unjustified wars
of aggression in memory. More
than a million of them marched

‘in London in protest of the

war.
With typical self-righteous-
ness and a flash of what the
Economist magazine rightly
dubs “the most irritating grin in
British politics” the Prime Min-
ister chose to ignore them.
Now that he has succeeded
in making the world, including

the streets of London, so much
more dangerous a place, the
same self-righteousness is back
in use, this time in absolution
of any policy (some of) whose
opponents are terrorists.

Mrs Fatayi-Williams’ voice
was so compelling not just for
the resonance of the emotion
that it conveyed. A mother
from a distant land frantically
grieving a son lost in an act of
apparent senselessness far from
home; the context alone
evokes pathos in all balanced

people.

But more than the context
was the woman herself. The
intelligence, composure and
eloquence with which she
delivered a message of such
universal truth made its truth
all the more poignant. For that,
it is right that it should have
attracted the repetition that it
has among serious people.

But it would be very wrong

,to permit the eloquence, poise

and high feeling elicited by
these horrible attacks to be
highjacked by those politicians

keen to justify murderous,

supremacist and hypocritical
policies in other Peep le; s coun-
tries.

The tactic of terrorising peo-
ple is inhuman and wrong,
whether it is the slaughter of
innocents in a bus in London
or uninformed western politi-
cians deciding, at a safe dis-
tance, to snuff out thousands
of Arab, Muslim lives in an ille-
gal and ill-founded war.

True, never should the use
of terrorism as a tactic make
the public look any more kind-
ly at the cause of the perpetra-

.tors. But equally, never should

it make a thinking public look
any more kindly at the policies
of a government whose actions
have made the world a so
much angrier and more violent

place.

HUNDREDS of Bahami-
ans paid their final respects to
a man who cared for the
Bahamas’-HTV/AID’s victims.

The funeral service for Rev
Glenroy Nottage, director of
the All Saints Camp of Saint
John the Divine, which pro-
vided care for persons inflict-
ed with the HIV/AIDs virus,
was held at Faith United Mis-
sionary Baptist church on Sat-
urday.

Rev Nottage was in the
intensive care unit of the
Princess Margaret Hospital
since June and died on July
10.

In 1986 he established the
All Saints Camp which
“became a place of refuge and
healing to hundreds of
Bahamians” with the dread-
ed disease.

The Valley of
No Return |

__ By John Iomerlin. © 4
Illustrated by Michael Lacapa







AVASU CANYON, an Arizona branch of the
Grand Canyon, is famed for its natural beauty.
However, it is less well-known that floods occasionally





rampage through the valley on their way to the Colorado



River.



Two young people set out one afternoon in the autumn
of 1909 to visit “Dead Man’s Falls,” north of the Supai Vil-
lage. A prank played on them by a young member of the
Havasupais Indian tribe becomes potentially lethal when a






flash flood cuts off their return.




For the next several days the pair must endure cold and




hunger while attempting to make their way to safety; the



situation grows yet more deadly when they discover they




are being stalked by a hungry mountain lion.




This is a story of two young people ftom diverse back- —



grounds - one, the son of a mining engineer, the other, a




daughter of the tribal chief whose people are threatened



with exile from their ancestral land, and of the lessons




learned as they struggle for survival.

will reveal the “true meaning”
of the life worth of Rev Not-
tage.

“Glenroy decided, despite
lack of recognition and accep-

tance, as he saw it, he did it,”

said Mr Christie.

Rev Nottage’s work at the
camp was not without inci-
dent. His obituary stated that
he endured insults and public
ridicule.

Homage

Others paying homage, in
the four and a half hour ser-
vice, included Minister of
Social Services and Commu-
nity Development Melanie
Griffin.

Mrs Griffin recalled a visit
to the Lazaretto Road camp
and her talk with Rev Not-
tage. She said he told her of
the hurts, pain and the holistic
mythology he used.

She likened his life to that of
Mother Theresa “who made

untouchable.”

Rev Nottage’s brother and
leader of the Coalition for
Democratic Reform (CDR),
Dr B J Nottage, reflected.on
Rev Nottage’s childhood days,
his years of entertaining and
his past drug addiction.

“There is nothing like loos-
ing a brother or a sister. Some-
how it feels that the umbilical
cord was cut,” said Dr Not-
tage. a8

Dr Nottage hopes: that the
work of his brother will not
be abandoned. “

Pastor Hugh A Roach in his
sermon talked about God call-
ing on certain persons to make
sacrifices.

“Glenroy’s story is that God
could use anyone at anytime
to do God’s work,” he said."

He also noted the impor-
tance of abstinence and urged
persons who are getting mar-
ried to get “checked out” for
the HIV/AIDS virus. -

Mr Christie said his govern-

three years ago, when he decided
to create a ministry “separate and

Legislation

The Government, through the
Ministry of Social Services and
Community Development, recent-
ly appointed a Working Group to
review draft disability legislation
to promote and safeguard the
rights of persons living with dis-
abilities. Headed by lawyer Dion
Hanna, the group is to make rec-
ommendations for additions, dele-
tions and’ amendments, where
necessary, to the draft legislation.

The Working Group, which is
comprised of representatives from

the church, government, private .

citizens and representatives of var-
ious non-governmental organisa-
tions, are expected to deliver their
report to Minister of Social Ser-
vices Melanie Griffin.
The.content of the draft legis-
lation was the result of two sym-
posiums on disability hosted by
the Ministry in New Providence
and Grand Bahama in conjunc-
tion with the Bahamas National
Council for Disability and the
Northern Bahamas Council for
Disability.

“I selected Melanie Griffin
. specifically for this job. because of

her own Christian spirit and

because I thought that if she, by
her own convictions, understood
the admonition in'the book of
Matthew that ‘Whatever you do
for the least of My brethren, you
do for Me’ that I could-rest
assured that we would have a
messenger who would not only
take the message, but act upon it
because it is a conviction she
shares,” Mr Christie said.

Prime Minister Christie said the

- fact that The Bahamas is a chain

of islands extending over 100,000
square miles, presents adminis-
trators and staff at the Ministry
of Social Services and Communi-
ty Development with some ‘“chal-
lenges in coping with the capital of
New Providence with over 200,000
people” while simultaneously pro-
viding programmes and initiatives
to children and persons in other
islands of the Commonwealth
“with an expanse of water in
between.”

“And so it is an invidious task
for them, but nevertheless I find
that every time we make one step
forward, we are bringing more
comfort to the national good,” he
said.

Prime Minister Christie
applauded Senator Morris for the

Pallet Jac









riehts of persons ing with dis-
abilities ee the region: ‘as



Services), as the Caribbean rép-
resentative on the: JUN Ad Hoc
Committee and as ‘a‘person liv-
ing with a disability.

Senator Morris developed alu
coma:in 1984 while a student af,St
Maty’s High-School, Jamaica. He
became completely ‘blind i in 1989
at the age of 20.



“To see you representing your
country and to have you come
here and speak to our people
must be a source of inspiration, to
them because it makes the point
very eloquently of the importaiice
of our recognising that we are‘all
equal in God’s eyes and we have
to continue to work towards that,”
said Mr Christie." |

“Your efforts to really help sén-
sitise our people throughout the
region is appreciated and, most
certainly, I am able to say ‘that my
Government is committed-to
making progress in ensuring that
we catch up, relative to where we
ought to be,” the Prime Minister
added.

Senator Morris thanked the
Prime Minister for his comments,
adding that the Government of
Jamaica “stands ready” to assist
The Bahamas in whatever way



‘possible to meet the objectives

outlined by Mr Christie.

“We have been introducing ser-
vices for the disabled over:a peri-
od of time and we have some best
practices that I am certain'will be
good to share with you,” said Sen-
ator Morris.

Senator Morris told Prime Min-
ister Christie that the prayers: of
the: Government.and the people
of, Jamaica are with and for
him.

“We were very Sninenied when
we heard of your illness; Because
as Caribbean brothers we'under-
stand the challenges and difficul-
ty that we all face from time! to

Not only is BTC being threat-
ened, he added, but other coun-
tries in the region are being
affected.

Just last week, the Executive
Director at the Public Utilities
Commission (PUC) Barrett
Russell, told The Tribune that
no company other than BTC
has ever had a licence to offer
VoIP services or any other
telecommunications service. He

added that the PUC had no
intention of issuing any other
licence.

This statement came after
San Diego-based Viper Incor-
porated announced its: newest
distribution partner, Viper Sys-
tems Networks (VSN) of the
Bahamas.

The statement said VSN prin-
cipal managing partner Elwood
Rolle and his team “have built a
formidable launch programme

would be a
‘considerable challenge’ to BTC

consisting of print advertising
and other marketing campaigns
to penetrate the Bahamas and
Eastern Caribbean markets and
bring Viper Networks products

_ and services to the region.

However Mr Russell said that
if either company opens up
shop in the country it “would
most certainly be an illegal act.”

Yesterday, Mr Roberts added
that the technical staff at BTC
are looking into the matter.

Austrian tourists shot

FROM page one

Mr. Wilchcombe, who was in
Bimini over the weekend, said
residents are concerned over
the incident, but they are
“strong” and will continue to
welcome persons to the island.

William Butler, a resident of
Bimini told The Tribune that
everyone is “upset” and “dis-
turbed” by what happened.

“It is definitely a concern. It is
a Serious matter because it hap-

pened to a tourist. The whole
Bahamas depends on tourism,”
said Mr Butler.

A resident of Alice Town,

Bimini, who wished to remain

anonymous, said that when
she first heard about the inci-
dent she was a bit concerned.
She questioned what it would
do to the tourism industry,
noting that tourism in Bimini
is “just coming back alive.”
However, she reported that
there are still tourists on the

island enjoying themselves.

“Last night (Saturday night)
at the Complete Angler night
spot, I noticed in there was still
packed with tourists. They still
seem to be carefree and happy.
Even in the streets there were
still tourists passing up and
down.

“T really don’t think it would
affect us too greatly. There are
tourists who will be concerned,
but others will still come because
of what we have to offer.”

PetroCaribe arcontanl
mrerorei (an impact on BEC’

@ By CARA BRENNEN
Tribune Staff Reporter

THE recently signed PetroCaribe agreement
between Venezuela, the Bahamas and several
countries in the region, could have a significant
impact on the profits of the Bahamas Electrici-

ty Corporation.

The deal signed by Trade and Industry Min-
ister Leslie Miller would allow companies to
purchase fuel directly from a manufacturer
rather than a supplier. By cutting out the middle |
man, it was felt that fuel prices, including gaso-
line could then be sold at cheaper prices to the

consumer.

Yesterday, while a guest on Island FM’s talk
show Parliament Street, Works and Utilities
Minister Bradley Roberts said the deal could

have major ramifications for BEC.
He said that if the Corporation was able to

purchase its bulk fuel through PetroCaribe, for
less, then the company would be able to take
those extra funds, pay off their debts at a high-
er rate or refinance their bills.

While electricity rates may not drop, the com- }

pany in the long term would save money, he

said.

Mr Roberts added that he is extremely proud _
of the progress BEC has made.

He noted that there have been less power
outrages considering that the country is in the
middle of summer. He said the challenge now

will be to upgrade facilities so that the corpora-

‘ ‘TOTAL spending by tourists

between 1990 and 2004, the
‘International Monetary Fund

that visitor numbers are

After averaging about 800 newly con-

single-family houses surged to 894 units in

2004, the highest level since 2001. He also
pointed out that multi-family construc-
tion, which ran at relatively low levels in
the early 1990s, has also been‘strong.
The connection between prosperity in
the mortgage industry and the economic

low inflation, had been more than a coin-

countries prone to catastrophes should
save enough to cover the expected
average annual cost.”

However, Mr Smith said that while
the idea of a ‘calamity fund’ and allo-
cating an initial $5 million to it had
been discussed with the IMF, the whole
idea would have to be “worked
through” at various levels of govern-
ment and did not represent a concrete
proposal.

The minister said the talks had come
about through.the Bahamas’ “almost
perennial problem with hurricanes,
being in the zone” and discussions on |
how the National Emergency Man-

- agement Agency (NEMA) would be
funded, such as would it be a part of
recurrent expenditure.

‘The IMF itself noted that funding



of NEMA, which is to have six per-
manent employees, under draft legis-
lation “is left open to donations and
unspecified budget allocations to be
provided by Parliament”.

Mr Smith himself said the whole -
tone of conversations with the IMF
was to ensure that hurricanes and their

Colina suffered $2.6m loss in 2004 last period

@ By NEIL HARTNELL
Tribune Business Editor

inancial analysts
have inferred that
Colina Holdings
(Bahamas), the
holding company
for Colinalmperial Insurance
Company, made a $2.6 million
loss' for'the three months to
December 31, 2004, given its
full-year net income of $313,687
and profit of $2.94 million for
the year to September 30, 2004.
‘Colina Holdings’ 2004 finan-
cial'figures, and the fact that
they were qualified by the exter-
nal auditors, “were not able to
satisfy” themselves that all relat-
ed-party transactions had been
disclosed and accounted, have
been the ‘hot topic’ in financial
and business circles since they
were published last week:
‘Several sources have openly
: spé¢ulated to The Tribune
' about whether the figures and



ments could have an impact on
Colinalmperial’s top A- (Excel-
lent) financial strength rating
from A.M. Best, the interna-
tional insurance rating agency.
Questions have also been
raised about whether the inde-
pendent directors on Colina
Holdings (Bahamas) Board
during 2004 knew of and
approved all the related-party
transactions over which the
auditors raised the red flag.
Those directors include Dr
Timothy McCartney, professor
at Nova Southeastern Univer-
sity’s School of Business and
Entrepreneurship, and Dr
Myles Munroe, the founder and
president of Bahamas Faith
Ministries International.
Several sources suggested .
that instructions issued by Col-
inalmperial in early July 2005
to: both Colina Financial Advi-
sors, the affiliate that acts as its
investment manager, and the
Colina Financial Group, its par-
ent and majority shareholder,

indicated that the regulators
were trying to ‘ring fence’ the
life and health insurer from
related companies in the group.

Colinalmperial asked Colina
Financial Advisors to redeem
all shares it held in investments
funds the latter managed and
administered - worth more than
$6 million - and “a significant
portion of the total value of
such related party investments
as at December 31, 2004”.

Repayment

ColinaImperial also request-
ed repayment of all advances
owing to it by CFG and an
“affiliated borrower”, worth
some $2.374 million, as at
December 31, 2004, plus

accrued interest: As at July 18;

this had not been repaid.
Elsewhere, Colinalmperial is
still awaiting regulatory
approval for its $2.303 million
acquisition of International
Reinsurance Managers (IRM),

- al’s

a US-based underwriting man-
agement company that provides
group health reinsurance to 100
companies in the Caribbean and
Latin America. On the date the
deal was completed, Colina
announced it had sold a 40 per
cent stake in IRM back to that
company’s management, loan-
ing them $737,137 to finance
that transaction.

The notes to ColinaIlmperi-
financial statements
revealed that Colina Holdings
“began assuming ‘an increasing
percentage of” IRM’s under-
writing risk for new business
assumed in a.reinsurance pool.
The amount of risk assumed
had increased from 30 per cent
in the 2003-2004 year to 80 per
cent in the 2004-2005 year.

Colina Holdings’ ‘chairman,
Emanuel Alexiou, struck a pos-
itive note in his message to
shareholders, saying that Coli-
nalmperial’s total asset base
would reach $400 million once

integrated into the company.

Net revenues for the year to
December 31 had risen from
$57.4 million to $91.3 million
through the integration of
Canada Life, but Mr Alexiou
said $5 million of non-recurring
expenses were incurred over
both purchases and the imple-
mentation of new computer sys-
tems. |

Accounting

However, several sources
pointed out that had it not been
for changes in the accounting

treatment of goodwill, which:

subjects this to an annual
impairment test rather than
being amortised over time, Col-
ina Holdings could have record-

ed a net loss for 2004. The.

change helped the company
write-back $1.878 million in
goodwill that had previously

-been amortised. "

It is too soon, though, to pass
judgement on whether Colina
Holdings’ series of acquisitions
has been a success or failure, as
it normally takes 18 months to
two years to complete the inte-
gration process and examine
whether cost savings, economies
of scale and shareholder value
has been delivered.

Colina’s view is that the com-
pany is engaged in a ‘cleaning-
up’ exercise on its balance sheet
following its recent acquisition
spree, plus the bloody and bitter
feud that saw Jimmy Campbell
removed from both CFG and
his position as Colina Holdings’

. president earlier this year.

“Subdued inflation had enabled mortgage
| interest rates to stay relatively low, and
’ together with a robust job market and
healthy gains in income, had increased the
demand for housing.

Since the Association's inception in
December 2003, Mr Smith said members
had attained a 97 per cent'success rate in
getting clients approved for mortgages from

other financial institutions, and the total

amount in dollar terms had exceeded $100
million.

The minister added that the single largest
expenditure by any household in the
Bahamas was the acquisition. of a home,

typically through a mortgage, making it
likely that one of the most important rela-
tionships entered into by households was
the one formed with a mortgage broker
and, ultimately, with a banking institution.

In the Bahamas today, Mr Smith said,
the economy: was poised for.increased

growth propelled by both domestic and for- .

eign investment, which will lead to higher

employment, higher income and an increase.

In these circumstances it was likely that

‘new demands will be placed on the profes- _
sion, and the manner in which mortgage -
brokers respond was likely to determine

the path for the future growth and devel-
opment of the association.

Mr Smith commended Troy Sampson
and James Bostwick for pioneering the idea
of a unified body of brokers. The two

_ approached him, during the association's

infancy stage, with a view to forming an
organisation to recognise mortgage brokers
in the Bahamas.

regulator facing three “diffi-

“a more market-based” form

Among the options faced by
the Central Bank and its Mon-
etary Policy Committee (MPC)
were for the regulator to issue
its own paper for open-market
type operations, with a maturi-
ty shorter than that for Trea-

However, the IMF warned
that the experience in other

The Fund also suggested
converting Bahamian Treasury
Bills into a monetary policy
tool, giving this instrument two
functions - deficit financing and
monetary controls. This,
though, might require the Gov-
ernment to effect a change in
law.

The third option suggested
by the IMF was the auction of
short-term Central Bank
deposits to withdraw liquidity,
and repurchase/reverse repur-
chase agreements of govern-
ment securities to withdraw or

inject liquidity..

Although acknowledsine
that the Central Bank’s port-

: folio was relatively small, lim-

iting its potential impact, the
IMF said its advances to the
Government - limited to 10 per
cent of revenue in the preced-
ing three years - could be secu-
ritised.



“Securitised advances should
be marketable, and the Cen-
tral Bank could consider engag-
ing in repurchase agreements
with the market using its port-
folio of government bonds and
securitised advances,” the IMF
said.

“The maturities of repos
should be shorter than that of
the underlying instrument, in
part to clearly differentiate gov-
ernment financing from mone-

tary operations. It could also ©

auction short-term deposits.”

ticular, the Central Bank

To reform monetary regula-
tion and policy instruments, it
would have to take place in a

way to avoid imposing a finan-. .

lator would also need to devel-
op the ability to forecast mar-
ket liquidity, manage any
excess, let market forces allo-

reserve requirements as a “last

THE TRIBUNE

MONDAY, JULY 25, ZU05, FAGE op



Visitors, from Page 1B

the Bahamas had enjoyed
“impressive growth” in visitor
numbers to reach the Govern-
ment’s much-touted five mil-
lion arrivals in 2004, the IMF
backed up the concerns of
many in the industry by con-
firming this had been driven
largely by cruise ship passen-
gers.

While cruise ship visitors had
increased by 9 per cent per
year on average since 1996,
stopover visitor numbers had
been “stagnant” since the ear-
ly 1990s.

To ram the point home, the
IMF said that in 2004, cruise
ship visitors accounted for 67
per cent of total visitors to the
Bahamas, up from 40 per cent
in the 1990s.

-- Tourism
The Fund added: “Howev-

er, the largest portion of .

tourism expenditure in the
Bahamas comes from stayover
vigitors and total tourism
spending has been stagnant.
This reflects the fact that cruise
ship visitors spend relatively
modest amounts while in the
country, and as a result total
tourism expenditure in real
terms has. barely grown from
1990 to 2004.”

But while the Bahamian
tourism industry and its per-

formance statistics have
become increasingly reliant on
the cruise ship industry, its is
questionable whether the eco-
nomic ‘trickle-down’ benefits
from the sector are felt as much
as the stopover segment.

The Tribune has previously
reported extensively on how
the cruise ships are increasing-
ly using their own private

- islands, where they effectively
control all the excursions and .

activities. They have also
squeezed the margins of
Bahamian tour operators and
attraction providers, making it
difficult for them to invest in
upgrading their amenities.
The IMF detailed how the
Bahamas’ “strategy of targeting
the upscale market” and com-
pletion of the Phase II expan-
sion at Paradise Island’s

Atlantis resort helped gener- -

ate a “sharp recovery” in per
capita stopover visitor spend-
ing, with average daily room
rates in this nation increasing
by 21 per cent between 1998
and 1999. Occupancy rates at
that time rose to 70 per cent. .

“Since then, occupancy rates
have been closer to 60 per cent
due to an increase in room
capacity and as a consequence
of the reduction in stayover
arrivals after the terrorist
attacks of September 11. In
2004, both average daily room

rates and occupancy rates start-

added.

The IMF report also found
that the Atlantis Phase II
expansion boosted casino earn-
ings by 32 per cent in 1999, and
increased Nassau and Paradise
Island’s importance as a tourist
destination compared to the
overall Bahamas. Nassau and
Paradise Island’s share of
stopover arrivals in the
Bahamas rose to 59 per cent in
1999-2004, compared to an
average of 51 per cent between
1991-1998.

Spending

Research by the IMF indi-
cated that private household
spending (consumption) in
tourists’ home countries - espe-
cially the US - was the most
important factor influencing
tourism demand for the
Bahamas.

The IMF said its research
indicated tourism in the
Bahamas was “a luxury good”,
but added that this nation’s rel-
ative price compared to that of
its competitors was not “statis-
tically significant”
mining tourist arrivals.

“A possible interpretation
would be that when competi-
tors lower their prices, the
Bahamas tourism operators are

in deter-:

forced to reduce their prices,
thus reducing stayover expen-
diture but with no impact on
stayover arrivals, as if the oper-
ators were targeting an occu-
pancy rate,” the Fund said.

Apart from the risks posed
by hurricanes and the relative
maturity of the Bahamian
tourism product, the IMF said
this nation’s leading industry
was also vulnerable to its
dependency on the US for its
customer base. The sector’s
position, the Fund warned,
could be jeopardised if there
was a major recession of ter-
ror attack in the US, and rec-
ommended that the Bahamas
seek to broaden its visitor mar-
ket.

Ministry of Tourism statis-
tics employed by the IMF
showed that the percentage of
total visitors to the Bahamas
who came from the US
increased from 83.8 per cent in
2000. to 87.2 per cent in 2004,
with numbers from Canada
declining from 5.4 per cent to
4.4 per cent, and Europeans
dropping from 6.8 per cent to
5.4 per cent, over the same
time period.

. While stopover visitors from
the US increased by 4.3 per
cent in 2004, European stay-

overs fell by 10.3 per cent com- .

pared to a 17.1 per cent
increase in 2003. Canadian

arrivals increased by 8.4 per
cent in 2004.

And the IMF also warned
that while the Bahamas’ strat-

egy of targeting the high end

of the visitor market had been
successful to date, and raised
tourist spending, it risked “sat-
uration and excess capacity”
because this was a “limited seg-
ment”.

Projects

The Fund said: “This risk
may not yet appear to be sig-
nificant, given the pipeline of
luxury tourism projects that
have been proposed to the
Bahamian authorities, but this
also underscores the impor-
tance of not distorting private
investment decisions by gov-
ernment incentives.

“The Bahamas should be
cautious. about building up
excess capacity that could lead



to a price war among opera-
tors and, in the end, jeopardise
this strategy.”

The IMF warning echoes
those given privately by Kerzn-
er International figures last
year, who feared that the $1.2
billion Baha Mar redevelop-
menmt of Cable Beach could
see it go head-to-head with
Atlantis and effectively split
the market for high-end
tourists, leaving both worse off.

Apart from Cable Beach, the
Government has announced a
whole range of high-end
tourism developments target-
ed at the Family Islands as part
of its goal to have an anchor
project for each island. It is
uncertain whether the
Bahamas has the workforce
and infrastructure to cope, and
whether it will be able to fill
all the rooms.

THE TRIBUNE



—_—



Resort, from Page 1B

of administration and external
affairs for Baha Mar, said that
as the group develops its prop-
erties, the convention space
was expected to increase sig-
nificantly.

The main reason behind the
expansion are the potential
benefits set to accrue as a result
of the 2002 signing of a TIEA
between the Bahamas and
Washington, which will permit
US citizens to deduct against
their annual income the
expenses they incur in attend-
ing business conventions held
in this nation from January
2006 onwards.

"This is something many
hotels have anticipated for
many years. It's a significant
move that will boost the
tourism sector simply because
we appreciate that groups and
conventions have a higher
propensity to spend as individ-
uals than other segments. This
augers well for growth in the
sector and we're looking for-
ward to it,” Mr Sands said.

Determine

While the immediate benefit
of the tax break will be difficult
to determine, as most of the
groups which would benefit
from the initiative have planed
their conventions years in
advance, the delay gives the

Bahamian hotel industry an
opportunity to do seme for-
ward planning.

According to Mr Sands, like
most properties in the
Bahamas, the Baha Mar resorts
- the Wyndham Nassau Resort,

the Radisson Cable Beach

Resort and the Nassau Beach
Resort - do not currently have
enough meeting space to sat-
isfy the requirements of many
US-based groups and conven-
tions.

Therefore, it was likely there
will not be a significant amount
of US companies that will be
able to take advantage of the
tax break immediately. That
scenario is likely to change
going forward however, Mr
Sands said.

Doubled

Both the Radisson and the
Wyndham have a principal
meeting room of some 10,000
square feet, along with., addi-
tional break out rooms. Inclu-
sive of the Nassau Beach, the
resorts have some 55,000

' square feet of meeting rooms

which will be doubled in size.
"Group revenue is a signifi-
cant part of our business; on
the food and beverage and
room side it is high. We're
looking for a minimum of
100,000 square feet to double

what we have, and we also
expect to double our rev-
enues,” Mr Sands said.

Meanwhile, Michael Hooper,
general manager of the British
Colonial Hilton Hotel, said the
Bay Street property was doing
extremely well for the summer,
with an occupancy rate of 92
per cent for July.

. Forecasts

He added that initial fore-
casts for August show the prop-
erty at an 82 per cent occupan-
cy level, compared to 77 per
cent for the same period in

2004.

September, however; is
expected to be somewhat slug-
gish, coming in at a 59 per cent
occupancy level, a slight dip
when compared to the. same
period last year, which posted a
61 per cent occupancy as resi-
dents and visitors sought shel-
ter from three hurricanes.

In terms of revenue, the
British Colonial Hilton’s aver-
age room rate for year-to-date
June was up by $18.

Executive

The executive vice-president

of the Bahamas Hotel Associ-
ation (BHA), Frank Comito,
said that with January 2006
start date for the convention
tax coming closer, hotel opera-
tors had been much more
aggressive in their efforts to
capture group sales out of the
US meetings market.

Facilities

"We know we need addi-
tional meeting facilities, and
there are several properties

Dorcy Park Boyz top division.
after victory over New Breed

@ By BRENT STUBBS
Senior Sports Reporter

IT was only a matter of time
before the Electro Telecom Dorcy
Park Boyz blasted into the top spot
in the men’s division of the New
Providence Softball Association.

On Saturday at the Churchill
Tener Knowles National Softball
Stadium, they took advantage of
that opportunity when they
stopped the New Breed 11-1 in the
opening game.

But their position was solidified
in the feature contest when last
year’s runners-up, Delsol Arawaks,
out-slugged the defending cham-
pions TBS Truckers 13-11. It was
the Truckers’ second straight loss
after they were knocked off 3-1 by
the Electro Telecom on Thursday
night.

“Right now we’re just trying to
put the pieces together,” said Elec-
tro Telecom’s player/manager
Mario Ford, “but we’re going to
take it one game at a time.

“Defensively, we’re going to
prove as a team, but once we play
good defence behind our pitchers,
we will hold them to less runs and
hopefully our offence will roll
around.”

With the outcome of Saturday’s
double-header, the Dorcy Park
Boyz are now in control of the
league. But Ford said there is no
stopping them now as they head
towards clinching the pennant and
eventually the league championship
crown. —

one-game suspension after a bench-
clearing brawl against the Truckers
on Thursday night, his brother,
Edmund “Binks” Bethel got the
job done, as he did in the closure of
their last game.

Bethel, who consider himself to
be the “secret weapon” although
he is an old veteran, delivered a
five-hit, seven strike out perfor-
mance.

Offensive

But it was Arthur Thompson Jr,
who is normally in the coaches’
box, who came through offensively
to clinch the player of the game
honours.

Thompson, the son of Interna-
tional Softball Federation’s Hall of
Fame umpire Arthur “Old Art”
Thompson, cracked a three-run
home run in a four-run second
inning for the Dorcy Park Boys.

Playing first base defensively,
Thompson Jr went one for three
with four runs batted in. Binks
Bethel helped his own cause with a
2-for-4 night with a RBI and two
runs scored; left fielder Darren
Bowleg was three for three with
two RBIs and as many runs; and
second baseman Mardoche Simon
was 2-for-3 with a RBI, scoring a
run.

Keiron Munroe was tagged with
the loss for New Breed, who got a
one-for-three production with a run
from Clement Whylly. Their only
run came in the second inning..

Farmer wins
Clash of the
Speedsters

— By KELSIE JOHNSON
Junior Sports Reporter

AN early jump on the cycling
pack yesterday morning helped
Lee Farmer pull off the “Clash
of the Speedsters” title.

Farmer got out well ahead of .
the other cyclers, who had
devised a strategy plan to catch
him during the two- and- a-half-
hour race.

But Farmer’s big lead was to
large for them to close, even
with him cramping about eight
miles into the home stretch. The
lead allowed Framer to relax
and rehydrate his body.

-:He said: “It was a hard ride —
ny legs were sore from Satur-
day’s ride, plus I wasn’t pre-
pared to ride by myself this
morning. The competition was.
‘so far away.

>I got out to’ an early lead, I
think it was a minute and a half

“or two on the pack,.and ended

up getting cramped eight miles
out, just “finishing i in front of
them.

“Twas just feeling, and when
I cramped up it was more pain,
excruciating pain. I am happy
though that I did get out to that
big start, that helped me a lot.

Farmer, who rode more than
five miles on Saturday, clocked

‘ca time of 2h 9m 57s for the win.

Coming in second was Tracey
Sweeting in 2h 18m and 58s,
Canada’s James McDonald was
third in 2h 24m and 59s; Byron
Musgrove was fourth in 2h 28m.

For Sweeting the early morn-
ing ride was better than the race
held in Freeport.

Saying that yesterday’s
weather conditions were per-
fect riding conditions, Sweeting
believed that he would have
been able to catch up with
Farmer if it had not been for a
sluggish start on his part.

He said: “Today’s weather
was perfect, I feel great. The
ride was not has long because I
rode with the pack, but I tried
to pull away from them down
the home stretch.

“I saw it was to late to catch
and over take Lee, but I tried to -
wheel him since he did cramp
up. It was about 100 meters out
of the finish line when I made
my move, I should have made it
earlier but I didn’t.”

The lengthy ride attracted
several tourists who are now
looking to make the Bahamas
their home.

McDonald, a Canadian visit-
ing the Bahamas, joined up with
the cyclers to finish third, but
his greatest joy came when he
saw the amount of juniors riding
the course.

tively.

He said: “I’ve been riding
competitively for about five
years now, I love competing.
Today’s race was great — this
was the perfect weather for the
race, it wasn’t to hot or to cold.

“Where I am from we always
have to compete with the
weather, that’s our main thing. I
don’t think I could have done
any better than I did today.
That Lee Farmer is great, he
rode an excellent course.

“I am excited about moving
down here, I have children, so
seeing the younger riders out
motivated me.’

There were on two riders in
the women’s division: Julianna
Glinton and Carmel Suckey.

Suckey and Glinton rode dif-
ferent routes, the 45 mile and.
55 miles respectively.

Suckey timed 2h 32m 18s for
the official win, Glinton was .
awarded the second prize
although she rode with the men.
Her time was 2h 50m.

The junior division started"
out with more than eight rid-
ers, but only two endured the
45-mile trudge.

Jay Major and Kevin

Johnson returning



o Bahamas for .
volleyball camp

i By BRENT STUBBS
‘Senior Sports Reporter

EVEN since she left the
Bahamas almost two decades ago,
Vanessa Johnson had always
dreamed about returning home
to give something.back to the

. game of volleyball-and basketball.

This week, the former double
sport standout and national team
player will achieve that reality
when she joins a number of visit-
ing coaches participating in the
first Jackie Conyers Volleyball
Camp.

’ Organised by the Bahamas
Volleyball Federation, the camp

_is a “thank you” gesture to Cony-

ers for her dedicated and tireless
representation of the Bahamas in
competition and her superb
arhbassadorship.

The camp will run from today
until Friday at the DW Davis

Gym from 9am to 4pm.

Johnson, who played with
Conyers in both sports, said she is
delighted to finally see a camp of
this nature being instituted by the
federation.

“Vm probably more excited
because I wanted to do this for
the past two to three years and
now it’s at the point where it will
actually happen,” said Johnson,
who currently lives in Atlanta,

Georgia where she is a volleyball
and basketball coach.
Johnson, a graduate of AF
ADDErley High, attended Ten-
nessee Tech University where she
was picked for the
All-Conference team all four
years and she currently hold the

university records for blocks and

kills per game.

Although she has earned her
bachelors, masters and EdS
degrees, Johnson is currently
teaching sports medicine and is
the head varsity volleyball coach
and assistant basketball coach at
North Gwinnett High School in
Atlanta. |

She will be joined by a number

of visiting coaches, including Del .

Hughes, Eric Harris, USAV vol-
leyball director, John Kessel and.
Olympic coach Toshi Yoshida.
Hughes has been coaching for
22 years and is certified at the
CAP II Level. He has enjoyed a

: sting coaching volleyball players

from Arizona, Georgia Tech,
Texas and Florida.

Harris, on the other hand, has
been coaching since 1989. He
recently coached a 17-and-under
club team from the Vertical One
Volleyball Club, based in Suwa-
nee, Georgia, in the national
championships that were held in
Salt Lake City, Utah.

Johnson, who was instrumen-
tal in securing the coaches to
attend, said because this was the
first year hosting the camp, they
wanted to bring in the best avail-
able talent. :

“We want to make this an
annual event and so we want to
make this the best one, as far as
the instructions and basic skills
are concerned,” she stressed.

“We will start off with the
basics and then we will split-them
up into the advanced and begin-
ners groups, so that nobody can
be intimidated.”

Conyers, who was considered
one of the best power hitters in
the Caribbean during her playing
days, said she is. excited about
how things are coming together
for. the opening of the camp.

“We’re still trying to finalise
everything with the coaches and
trying to confirm with everybody
before we get started,” she said.
“We've had some good response
from the schools and so we’re just
waiting to get started.”

However, Conyers was more
thrilled because Johnson will
finally get a chance to showcase
her coaching skills at home.

“It’s been long overdue,” she
said. “This is something she want-
ed to do for a long time, so we
decided to make it happen.”



Culmer content with BSF team prospects

‘@ By BRENT STUBBS
Senior Sports Reporter

“MANAGER Ali Culmer likes what
Ke see in the make-up of the Bahamas
Softball Federation women’s national
team which is heading to the XIII Cen-
ttal American and Caribbean Softball
Championships.

The team will leave town tomor-
row for Cartagena, Colombia, where
they will try to qualify for the VI

an American Softball -Champi-
Onships from November 13- 23 in
‘Guatemala.

“We look good. I’m very impressed
with the restructuring of the team,”
said Culmer, the treasurer of the BSF,
We have aus a few youngsters, who

have been looking very good in prac- |

tice.”

The Bahamas will have to finish in
the top four to advance to the XX Cen-
tral American and Caribbean Sports
Games, scheduled for July 15-30 in
Cartagena.

Based on what he and his coaching
staff, including Gary “Super” Johnson
and Lenny Newton from Grand
Bahama, have to work with, Culmer
said he is confident they can get the
job done.

“We have good pitching and they
have been working a lot with the pitch-
ing machine, so if we can play good
defence, we will be all right,” he said.
“We just need them to apply them-
selves to what we’ve been working on

in practice when they hit the field and
I think we will be okay.”

While the pitching will be the team’s
strength, led.by ace Mary Edgecombe,
Culmer said their offence should come
around, especially bunting, one of the
main areas they have been working
on.

“All around, I think we're pretty
strong,” he said.

If there are any sieanenine Culmer
said it would be their lack of experi-
ence and exposure to some of the
younger ball players playing in a big
tournament.

“But because of our restructuring
and getting them to look ahead to the
future, I think they will rise to our
expectations.”

Joining Edgecombe in the pitching
department are Grand Bahamian Ner-

essa Lockhart, Sherry Beneby and.

Latoya

Humes (also from Grand Bahama).

-Catchers are Dorothy Marshall and
Monique Sears from Grand Bahama.
The infielders are Lakeisha Robinson,
Rita Mackey, Jeannine Wallace, Linda
Knowles, Thela Johnson and Beatrice
Riley.

The outfielders are Neressa Sey-
mour, Christine Hanna and Theresa
Miller. Chryshann Percentie and Alex-

-is Moss are the utility
players. Shervette Taylor will travel.

for the exposure.
Thela Johnson, the youngest mem-
ber of the team at age 17, said she is

“I’m pleased to get this exposure
to see what is expected of me three to
five years down the road,” said John-
son, one of the bright young stars in
the New Providence Softball Associ-
ation.

“T think we have a good team with a
lot of older players who I can look up
to learn rhore about the game of soft-
ball.”

The CR Walker Secondary High
12th grader said she is trying to learn

all the plays right now, but she admit-.

ted that she is nervous as she looks
ahead to making her first major inter-
national trip.

Clifford “Butch” Scavalla will travel

Triumph for

@ By RENALDO DORSETT

THE 10th annual Nelson
Cooper “Peace On Da Streets”
Basketball Classic culminated
with high-flying excitement,
keen competition and the
crowning of two new champi-
ons.

The nation’s premiere sum-
mer basketball tournament end-
ed on Saturday with the Cour-
tesy Food Store Saints and the
Real Deal Shockers capturing
the championship titles in the

junior and senior divisions.

respectively.

The Shockers, three-time
New Providence Basketball
Association Champions defeat-
ed the Heat, a team made up
primarily of Bahamian college
basketball players currently
playing in the United States.

The Shockers, led by Lasario
“Bones” Burrows, scratched
and clawed their way to a gutsy
48-40 win.

Playing like true underdogs
with a chip on their shoulder,
they attacked the basket early



and often. They also had a sti-
fling zone defencce that made
penetration for the Heat virtu-
ally impossible. Burrows set the
tone for the remainder of the
game, nailing a three-pointer
from the corner on the game’s
first play which garnered crowd
support for the Shockers.
They jumped out an early 9-0

lead and maintained their ini-’:

tial defensive intensity through-
out the entire game. -
The Heat seemed startled by

the initial intensity of the Shock- °
ers and were unable to keep’
pace with their speed, which led...

to a number of turnovers. and
easy Shockers’ baskets.

Real Deal led at the half 29- 7

21.

The second half produced
much of the same: the Shockers
were disruptive on the defen-
sive end of the court and
refused to allow the Heat back

into the game.

Heat guard Mitchell Johnson
put on a three-point shooting
display, hitting on three con-
secutive attempts late in the

game, bringing his team to with-

The Saints won 53-37 to take

the title.

Led by Terrence Brown, they
used their quickness to domi-
nate éarly with numerous fast-
break opportunities.

Resolution calls for
Haitian leaders to ©
overcome differences

i ATLANTA

- A RESOLUTION calling for political lead-
ers in Haiti to overcome their differences

and work to end violence in the Caribbean ©

country was signed by about 60 supporters
Saturday, according to Associated Press.
Killings and kidnappings have threatened
| to delay upcoming elections in the country,
but Raymond A. Joseph, Haiti’s ambassador-
designate to the United States, said the reso-
lution is a clear sign of bipartisan desire to
end the violence.
“There is at least some kind of dialogue
taking place,” he said. “For ‘the first time;
there is the idea that people who have dif-

ferent political positions are not your ene-
mies.’

Peace

The two-day conference brought together
about 75 people to discuss ways to.seek peace
and democracy, said Haitian Support Pro-

- ject spokeswoman Ka Flewellen.

“Now is the moment to end business 4s
usual and try to find a new way to move fot-
ward,” Flewellen said. “More Haitians are
hungry, without work, and without the capa¢-
ity to sustain themselves, Violence and pover-
ty are feeding on each other.” rare j

FOR THE RECORD

The release of findings by a special panel considering

pital. The special advisory panel was convened to con-
sider the act of plagiarism committed by Dr Smith and
was scheduled to make its findings public last week.
College of the Bahamas council chairman Franklyn Wil-

potential of thousands of
youth, whose talents, once
cultured, could reap rich ben-
efits for the Bahamas.

it is this sentiment that inspires the
team at the Farm Road Urban
Renewal project, now embarking
upon its fourth year.

This summer, they have taken their
most ambitious steps thus far, to reach
as many children as possible in order
to re-shape their ideas about life, fam-
ily and country.

According to project chief ASP
Stephen Dean of the Royal Bahamas
Police Force, enriching the lives of
the children of the ghetto is a crucial
investment for the government of the
Bahamas.

“We want to resurrect and restore
discipline in these kids the way it was
instilled in myself and persons growing
up in my time,” he said.

He plans to restore manners and
discipline the “old-fashioned” way —
the way he was taught. Therefore,
hundreds of children in the Farm
Road area have been attending local
church youth groups, and the Farm
Road Youth Band has grown to be
one of the most popular and well-liked
marching bands in New Providence.

According to Mr Dean, many of
these children never attended church
in their lives. He recalls one day,
when transportation had failed and
he could not get the boy’s group to
Evangelistic Temple for their regular
Wednesday Bible study and fun ses-
sion.

“They were actually upset with me,”
he said. “Boys wanting to read God’s
word and participate in something
positive.”

This summer, hundreds of Farm
Road youth have been split between
two power-packed summer camps. .

Two hundred children are attending
a special music camp at Evangelistic
Temple. There, band members as well
as newcomers are learning to read

"tt the ghetto lies ihe-untapped

music, and will each be given the
opportunity to learn two instruments,

Eighty new instruments, including
trumpets, saxophones, clarinets, flutes
and trombones, have been donated
to the band, much to the excitement of
the participants.

They are also expected to know
how to.swim by the end of the pro-
gramme.

The other group will attend daily
summer sessions at East Street Gospel
Chapel. There, a tripartite agreement
between the church, the Farm Road
Project and the Ministry of Youth
exists.

Children, once considered “under-
privileged”, are learning arts and

crafts, drama, sports, and Bible.

lessons, as well as being treated to
educational tours.

In fact, through the project, 50
young boys have returned to New
Providence as “‘changed individuals”,
according to Mr Dean.

They spent a week living the “hard
life” in the Berry Islands. Sponsored
by Evangelistic Temple, they were
taken to a cay where no buildings

stood. They lived in tents, and learnt
the true meaning of “working to catch
your food” as they fished every day
for their meal. There, tutors also
trained them in discipline drills, and

held sessions focusing on self-aware-

ness and development, and male
health and hygiene.

Meanwhile, 20 girls went through
a similar experience at Camp Abaco.

Because many of these children
never took a plane ride in their lives, it
was a real adventure and learning
experience for them, ASP Dean said.

“We are providing alternatives for
them so when we say, ‘Don’t be in



gangs’, they have something else to
turn to,” he said.

For the girls, the Farm Road Urban
Renewal Project has given them new
options and opportunities, according
to one of the project coordinators,
Corporal Lisa Rahming.

She explained that all their lives,
their role models have been women
who hang on the blocks, or go club-
bing, and the like. But through the
numerous projects they have designed,
she sees a different group of girls.

“Their eyes have been opened to

see new things and go new places.’

Their experiences have been motiva-

o> ee pve ayy, |





tional, inspirational and spiritual,
which enrich their lives. They are
being steered towards a more pur-

poseful life,” she said.

The project’s mentoring pro-
gramme, she added, has helped
improve the grades of many children
who once showed little or no interest
in even going to school.

How does this affect society? ASP
Dean said changing delinquent kids
into-productive citizens is a step
towards enriching Bahamian life, and

the maturity of society.

In the Farm Road community, for
example, he has seen the crime rate
drop in the area. For the first time, he
said the community has taken a dif-
ferent attitude towards the police.

Today, he can boast of the ability to
gather hundreds of young men in the
area in a relatively short period of
time to assist other community mem-
bers. The project has done this time
and time again in order to clean up
overgrown lots, renovate homes, build
proper bathroom facilities, or clean
up schools.

The community’s relationship with
police has also grown, he added.

Police can now gets tips on criminal

activities in the area, and have even
helped young persons in situations

before the courts.

Recently, when police officer Hen-
ry Curry was gunned down in the area,
Mr Dean said he saw a large out-
pouring of support and even outrage
from community members, including
those whose actions were known in
the past to be of a criminal] nature.

To his surprise, young men in the
area recently approached him to see if
the project would assist in sponsoring
a basketball tournament they wished
to host.

Success

He was able to assist, and the event,
he said, was a success. Two hundred
participants flocked to the Hay Street

Park, and the tournament was held in "

honour of fallen police officer Jeffrey
Tucker.

Ms Rahming said due to the suc-

cess of the programme, businesses,
civic organisations and churches are
calling in and asking how they can
lend a hand.

Businesses

Many of the businesses chose to

remain anonymous, but she pointed ,

out Big One shoe store, because the
company’s donations have helped
many of the children get new school
shoes where they wouldn’t have been
able to get a pair otherwise.

Brand new clothes, school books
and supplies, and instruments are just
some of the perks of being an active
part of a programme that is making
waves in the ghetto.

ASP Dean recalled that former gov-

Allen made a contribution of $15,000
that helped to boost the goals of the
programme as well. Mr Allen, he said,
grew up in Farm Road.

During his time in office, Mr Allen
- has repeatedly called on the private
sector to assist government in help-
ing “the darlings of our nation”
achieve their true potential.’

MP for Farm Road, Prime Minister
Perry Christie, will be visiting the chil-
dren this week.

Surprise

According to Ms Rahming, the
Prime Minister is in for a pleasant sur-
prise.

Another important partner, ASP
Dean added, is the parent of each
child. He said he has found that
although they may come from single

THE TRIBUNE



parent homes, or may have many sib-
lings, parents are excited about the

programme and proud of the leaps

and bounds their children have made.

The children of the ghetto, once
forgotten, have been arisen from a
deep sleep and today, show signs of .
vigor and hope.

Potential

“These children have a wealth of
potential,” said Corporal Rahming.
“However, in their lives there was

no one to push them. But here we are,

saying, ‘I’m watching you and. I’m
going to help you along the way’.
These children have natural talents,
and when they hear the community
applaud them and encourage them,
they do better. They know they re
doing something good.”

ernment Minister Algernon SPB



“Right now our entire focus
and prayers go toward Dr
Smith and his recovery. There is
no set date as to when the pan-
el’s responsibilities will be
resumed, but as of now they are
suspended.”

— Franklyn Wilson, chair-
man of the College of the
Bahamas Council on how COB
president Dr Rodney Smith’s
illness has affected the release
of findings by,a panel consid-
ering Dr Smith’s future at the
college. .

The panel was convened
after the president admitting
to plaigarising a portion of a
speech he delivered at a COB
graduation exercise in May.

“The fishermen here are com-

plaining but there isn’t a thing

“(John Morley was) lover of
his country. If anyone ever had
any doubts about his creden-
tials as a Bahamian let it be said
that he was one of the finest
fishermen ever produced in the
Bahamas and loved it with a
passion.”

— Sir Geoffery Johnstone
on the death of his lifetime
friend, John Morley. Mr Mor-
ley died on Sunday, July 17
after suffering for sometime
with a brain tumour. He was
72.

“On a personal basis, Mr
(John) Morley took a keen
interest in my political develop-
ment over the past 24 years, and
he has been a strong and gener-
ous supporter.

“He was always sincere and
he spoke with the conviction of
his beliefs. I will dearly miss
him.”

— FNM leader Tommy
Turnquest on the death of
Realtor John Morley.

“This man came to the air-
port from Red Bay in an emer-
gency case, but no charter pilot
could bring him into Nassau as
they were warned that they will
be severely dealt with. The pilots
wanted to take the chance but
they couldn’t. So the man died
at the airport — waiting.

“They opened the airport
during the regatta and then
closed it, So I guess the regatta is
more important than any other
normal life time. This incident
happened here today because
of that closure.”

— A source on the death of
Rufus Knowles Jr, 21, who
died at the San Andros airport
last week after waiting for
almost three hours to get an
emergency flight to New Prov-
idence.

According to the source, the
pilots at the closed airport were
warned that they would be
severely punished if any flights
left the runway.

THE Bahamas got its first

real taste of the hurricane sea-
son last week when’ a tropical
storm warning was issued for
Eleuthera, New Providence,
the. Berry Islands, Abaco and
Grand Bahama.

Franklin is the sixth tropical
storm to form for the 2005 hur-

The storm was projected to
move away from the Bahamas
by Saturday; however, some
computer projections showed
the depression turning back
towards the Bahamas on Tues-
day.

RESIDENTS of Moores

Island, a small island just south
of Abaco, are suffering under

“excessive” prices for gasoline,

and other petroleum products,
it was reported last week.

‘s With only days remaining
before the opening of the craw-
.fish Season, the fishermen are
worried that the price could
excéed its current high of $5.50,
and reach well beyond the $6
mark.

Predominantly a fishing com-
munity, residents have been
struggling to cope with the clo-
sure of the only gas station on
' the island following last year’s
active hurricane season.

- Residents on Moores Island
complain that they are also
having to pay $5.50 for a gallon
of kerosene.

Currently the price for.a gal-
lon of gasoline at the pumps in
New Providence averages
about. $3.72. Although
kerosene is not a price con-

trolled item, it is being sold in
Nassau for $4.10 a gallon.

SUCCESSFUL real estate
pioneer, John Morley of
Brown, Morley and Smith Real
Estate, surrounded by his fam-
ily, died peacefully at his
Ryswick, Montagu foreshore
home last week.

Mr Morley, who had suf-
fered for some time with a
brain tumour, was 72 years old.

Voted “Business Person of
the Year” by the Bahamas
Chamber of Commerce in
1999, Mr Morley devoted his
time and energies to the
Bahamas Real Estate Associa-
tion from 1962. Even as a child
Mr Morley possessed a keen
sense for business, working in
his family’s Harbour View
Guest House on West Bay
Street before launching out on
his own.

In 1965 he formed a real
estate partnership, Morley and
O’Brien, specialising in resi-
dential and commercial sales
throughout the Bahamas. Lat-
er the firm was merged with
McPherson and Brown, to
form Real Estates Sales and
Rentals (Bahamas) Limited, a
complete brokerage and prop-
erty management company.

Together the partners con-
tributed substantially to real
estate-development in the
Bahamas.

HENRY Hugh Smith was
acquitted last week of two
charges of murder.

Chief Justice Sir Burton Hall
instructed the three-man, nine-

woman jury to deliver a not:

guilty verdict, finding that the
prosecution, having closed its
case, did not provide sufficient
evidence to convict Smith.
Terah Bethel, 28, and Larry
Fernander, 52, were living
together when they were shot
to death at their home in the

‘Garden of Eden, Love Beach,

on July 21, 2000.

Smith, a former police offi-
cer, was extradited from
Atlanta, Georgia and brought
to Nassau on March 21, 2001.
He was officially charged with
the murders.

This was the third time that

Smith had stood trial for these .
crimes, but it was the first time °

that the case was followed

Privy Council in London on the
decision which the Court of

- Appeal handed down in May.

The decision overturned a rul-
ing made by Justice Hugh
Small in June, 2004 that
Knowles was being unlawfully
detained. A writ of habeas cor-
pus had been issued'on the
grounds that Knowles’ case had

_been prejudiced.

US president George Bush
had designated Knowles a “for-
eign narcotics kingpin”. Justice
Small saw this as “substantial
grounds” for concluding that
Knowles would not receive a
fair trial if extradited to. the
United States.

If allowed to. stand, Justice
Small’s ruling would have
meant that the authorities
would have had to release
Knowles from prison.

In May of this year, however
Appeal Court Justices Joan
Sawyer, Maurice Churaman
and Milton Ganpatsingh over-

turned Justice Small’s decision’

after ruling that he did not have
jurisdiction to hear the matter.

Police investigate |

after shootings —

@ By TIFFANY GRANT and
DENISE MAYCOCK
Tribune Staff Reporters

THE discovery of two bod-
ies in a hotel room at Bimini
Saturday has residents con-
cerned .and police conducting
an extensive investigation.

The bodies of Bernhard
Bolzano, 34, and Barbara Frelln
von Perfall; 32, both of Austria,
who arrived in Bimini on Thurs-
day for a short visit, were dis-
covered around 12.36pm in
Room 6 at the Blue, Water

Resort and marina in Alice -

Town, Bimini. Both had been
shot to death.

It was reported that a maid
discovered the bodies when she
went to clean the room. The
couple’s hotel’ room door was
locked, however the sliding
door, although closed, was not

‘locked.

Mr Bolzano’s hands were tied
behind his back. He was found
on the floor.

Ms von Perfall was found on
one of the two beds with a
wound to the head, and a bullet
wound to the stomach.

‘According to an employee at

‘ the Anchorage Hotel, the cou-

ple was scheduled to check-out
that morning.

Police are trying to deter-
mine the motive for the shoot-
ing. However, it does not
appear to be a robbery. Accord-
ing to reports, a “nice watch”
was still on the bureau in the
room.

The two bodies were flown
to Nassau, where an autopsy
will be performed.

A team of officers from‘Nas-
sau and Grand Bahama is in
Bimini investigating the deaths.

Assistant Commissioner of
Police Reginald Ferguson, who
flew to Bimini yesterday morn-
ing, returning to Nassau later
that day, said the police will

‘hold a press conference this

morning to make an official
statement.

Minister of Tourism Obie
Wilchcombe, MP for Bimini,
told The Tribune that he will
not comment on the matter if it
will affect the tourist industry.

“Any incident, whether a
homicide or poor behaviour,
can hurt the industry,” he said.

is arrested

at airport

AN American visitor was arrested at Nassau
International Airport shortly after 11am yesterday
as he checked in to catch a flight back to his home
in Los Angles.

According to police, a small quantity of marijua-
na was found. ,

The visitor was taken into police custody.

Police are also investigating two armed robberies.
Assistant Commissioner of Police Reginald Fer-

guson said that Narron Pratt of Colony Village was .

held up by a gunman. He told police that he had
been robbed of $580.

At 9.35pm Saturday a merchant of the Olde
Towne Mali Marine station was held up by a gun-
man and robbed of an undetermined amount of
cash.

THE introduction of the Voice over
Internet protocol could cut the profits
of Bahamas Telecommunications
Company by at least $45 million,
according to Works and Utilities Min-

- ister Bradley Roberts.

The VoIP technology, which allows
users to make long distance calls over
the Internet, is a considerable chal-
lenge to the company, he said.

A Sunday guest on Parliament
Street, Mr Roberts told hosts Fayne
Thompson and Anthony Delaney that
there is no way BTC would be able to
compete with VoIP.

He explained that while most long
distance rates are around 99 cents for
three minutes, VoIP offers rates of
one or two cents per minute. Such low .
fares can be offered because the com-
pany has no operating costs.

“How can you deal with a company

which has no operating cost?” he

asked.

Mr Roberts said there is no way to
recapture that market share. He not-
ed that BTC’s profits from long dis-
tance calls are around $90 million.

Ifimplemented VoIP could cut that
profit in half. “That is a serious mat-
ter,” said Mr Roberts. :

This month ‘most active’
for any storm season

@ By CARA BRENNEN
Tribune Staff Reporter
JULY, 2005 has been the

most active month for any
storm season, said Bahamian



meteorologist Geoffrey
Greene,
He warned Bahamians that





they cannot lower their guard
when it comes to hurricane pre-

“This month has been the
most active ever,” he said. At
the moment, Mr Greene said
his department is monitoring
two tropical storms, Franklin
and Gert.

According to Mr Greene,
tropical storm Franklin is slow-
ly making its way toward
Bermuda and should pose no
threat to the Bahamas unless
it makes a southern loop back.

Meanwhile, tropical depres-
sion Gert appears to be head-
ing straight toward Mexico. It
was expected to make landfall
last night. That country is
expected to experience heavy
rainfall along its coast.

Conditions
Mr Greene § said the

Bahamas might experience
some weather conditions such
as thunderstorms as.a result of
the systems, but should not
have a direct hit. However, he
stressed that the Met office
continues to monitor these
storms closely:

He warned the public against
falling into a false sense of secu-
rity, and said Bahamians must
ensure that they have the nec-
essary precautions in place such
as hurricane shutters, flash-

lights, batteries radios, food and
medical supplies.
~-“Weneed-Bahamians: to be

Morley is

laid to rest

@ By CARA BRENNEN
Tribune Staff Tabane Staft Reporter: _ —



HUNDREDS of family and
friends gathered at St Matthew’s
Anglican Church Saturday after-
noon for the funeral of Bahamian
real estate pioneer John R Morley.

Mr Morley, 72, died at his Mon-
tagu foreshore home on Sunday
after suffering from a brain
tumour. He had been ill for nine
months.

Persons from all walks of life
and political affiliations filled the
church as dozens more strained to
hear from speakers outside.

While the congregation
acknowledged the many accom-
plishments he made in his profes-
sional life as head of Morley Real-
ty, notably his partnership in
Marathon Mall and the develop-
ment of Westridge Estates and
South Westridge, it was his role
as husband, father and friend that
persons remembered most fondly.

His youngest daughter Sara
Morley, described the incredible
bond she and her father shared,
saying that he had always been
her hero. She said her father was
always there for all of his children
and cherished each one. -

She also said that her father had
passed his love for his country and
fascination with the water on to
her. Her sister Tara said that while
it might appear tragic to lose a
father so young, she preferred the
21 years she had with him to 100
years with another man for a

father. She spoke of the love her
parents, married for 23 years,
shared and said she was very lucky
to have grown up in such a won-
derful home.

Passion

As tributes given by his closest
friends revealed, Mr Morley’s
great passion was fishing and the
beautiful waters of the Bahamas.
Printed:on the last page of the
funeral booklet was a picture of
Mr Morley on his boat with the
simple words underneath, “Gone
Fishing.”

Godfrey Kelly said of his friend,
“his was a life well lived and ful-
filled”, and spoke of Mr Morley’s
fierce determination and persis-
tence when he believed he was
right. ,

Sir Geoffrey Johnstone, one of
his closest friends, said no one
loved the Bahamas more than

friendship with staunch PLP sup-

Others who, paid tribute were

Mr Morley’s life was fulfilled
because he knew God and made
hima part of his life.

The Bahamas
and its ‘strange
acquaintances’

EDITOR, The Tribune.

THE Bahamas is fast
approaching 300 years of
Democratic rule, but with the
election of the Progressive
Liberal Party (PLP) in 2002,
and the appointment of Mr.
Fred Mitchell as Minister of
Foreign Affairs, and Mr.
Leslie Miller as Minister of
Trade and Industry, the coun-
try has taken a deliberate turn
away from its. traditional
friends.

It is well known that there

is a pervasive anti-United
States sentiment throughout

' the Caribbean and with the

push to join the Caribbean
Single Market and Economy
(CSME), The Bahamas
appears to be quietly forging
stronger relationships with
like Cuba,
Venezuela and China.

Let’s take a brief look at
recent developments:

1. The Bahamas accepted a
$30,000,000 gift from the Chi-
nese for a National Stadium.

2. The Bahamas is getting
set to open Embassies in Cuba
and China.

3. The Minister of Tiade
and Industry has reportedly
signed The Bahamas onto an
oil deal with Venezuela to get
“cheaper oil” on credit.

On the surface these seem
like reasonable arrangements,
but what’s going on behind the
scenes?

First, as a result of the
“sift” from the Chinese, the
country now feels “pressured”
over its reported decision to
support Japan for a permanent
seat at the United Nations
Security Council because the
Chinese see the Japanese as

their adversary.

Second, it is mooted that
we need Embassies in Cuba
and China because:

1. We may have hundreds*

of Bahamians in Cuba at any
given time.

2. We need to keep a closer
eye on Cuba’s fast developing
tourism market, and.

3. The Government is
encouraging Bahamian entre-
preneurs to do business in Chi-
na to take advantage of the
low cost suppliers there.

However, the high costs to
fund and operate these
Embassies might be better
spent here at home. Maybe
The Bahamas Government
should consider a less expen-
sive option like a representa-
tive office in each country
rather than such grandiose

- plans.

And third, The Bahamas
Government has chosen to do
business with a Venezuelan
leader, who is trying to lead
an anti-American coalition,
without any public consulta-
tion, or allegedly the approval
of the Cabinet.

It would also seem prudent

' that the Attorney General’s

Office review the “oil deal” to
ensure it does not conflict with
The Constitution or other
treaties the country might
have signed.

It is interesting to note that
the Energy Cooperation
Agreement PetroCaribe does

not.guarantee a savings on the

price of oil below the market

A scientifically flawed position’

This same old group — very few of them in
numbers probably no more than 10-20 in total
— are challenging, objecting and manifesting
“their” argument over everything whether or |
not there is an advantage to the proposal whilst
doing absolutely nothing to correct the obvious.
' When last did these same folk object to:Nor-
man Solomon and Attorney Jeannie Thomp-
son’s Ardastra Gardens?

As many writers to The Tribune have over
the weeks indicated if these same professional
objectors would actually do something other
than object in writing to everything they might

Alternative for the Americas

luted than the political
arrangements of -' the
Caribbean Single Market and
Economy (CSME) or even the
Free Trade Area of The
Americas (FTAA). This is a
major foreign policy decision
that requires careful consider-
ation.

While it is desirable to have
good relations with ail nations,
and in true Libertarian spirit,
the best defence is to have no
enemies, it seems only logical
that The Bahamas, a nation
with a proud history of democ-
racy, would choose to improve
our relations with those
nations that have been our tra-
ditional base of support and
not become entangled with
dictators’ schemes or the Com-

do this in the first place is yet
unknown, but maybe it will

The Bahamas independence

By all means weep for London
— but don’t excuse Tony Blair

A FEW days after the
terrorist atrocity that

rocked London on the 7th of
July, a matronly Nigerian
woman, dressed in her tradi-
, tional garb, called a hasty press
» conference.
:, Pleading for information of
the whereabouts of her son,
» Anthony, a large picture of
:.whom was displayed behind
her, Mrs Miriam Fatayi-
- Williams went on to question
the: motives, and deplore the
»senselessness of an act of terror
‘that she well knew had proba-
bly taken his life.
’ Comparing the acts of the
. terrorists with the noble, non-
violent, and ultimately suc-
“cessful, campaigns of Mandela
‘and Gandhi, she questioned

how the attackers could fur-
ther their cause by killing and
maiming innocent people of all
nations, religions and back-
grounds. As a Nigerian
Catholic, married to a Muslim,
she was well placed to ask
these questions.

Hers was, on account of its
eloquence, its pathos, and its
signification of the random and
unselective nature of the
attacks, perhaps the most
poignant expression of the
senselessness and cruelty of the
attacks that most Londoners
will remember.

But no sooner had Mrs.
Fatayi-Williams spoken than
the politicians were competing
to outdo one another in repeat-
ing her words. For Tony Blair,
as well as Ken Livingstone, the



By showing the human

responsible for the appallingly
dangerous state of the world

today.

PERSPECTIVES

AWD RE w Ait BON



Mayor of London, it offered a

* golden opportunity to distance

the events of the 7th of July
from wider events in the world.

By showing the human suf-
fering and senselessness of the
acts so vividly, and in the expe-
rience of a random member of
the world community so tragi-
cally effected by them, the two
men sought to deny that British
policy abroad is in any way
responsible for the appallingly
dangerous state of the world
today.

A: Mr Livingstone
well knows, and Mr

Blair should know (but proba-
bly doesn’t) this self-righteous
denial of the context of the
event is based upon a most
simple-minded fallacy. That
fallacy holds that the moment
some nutcase decides to use an
evil, terroristic tactic, this event
breaks the chain of causation
between western policy and the

anger, much of it justified, that

it provokes around the world.

It is, of course, only when
that violence comes home,
rather than just featuring on
news broadcasts from “over
there”, that the supporters of
the fallacy feel the need to
expend political energy driving
it home. Thus, in Britain imme-
diately following the terror
attacks, the government was
out in force repeating the old
line about those who hate west-
ern values, rather than taking

the opportunity to face the
arguments of those — inside the
west as well as out — who sim-
ply hate western policy and
what it does to others.
Strangely, then, it was with
apparent disbelief that the
British government learned
over last weekend what 75 per
cent of British people (and pos-
sibly 100 per cent of British
garden wildlife) already knew:
that Blair’s aggression in Iraq is
responsible for creating and
enhancing the conditions in
which terror of the sort visited
on London can thrive. This was
the conclusion of a report by
the widely respected Chatham

House, an organisation that’

cannot lightly be dismissed by
anyone, much less a govern-
ment that so regularly defers
to it.

|: describing his “aston-
ishment” at the conclu-
sion of the report, Jack Straw,
the Foreign Secretary,
appeared to suggest that no
right-minded fanatical madman
could actually be motivated by

anything in the real world

when it came to deciding
where, when and upon whom,
to carry out his madness. Noth-
ing done in Baghdad, Basra or
Gaza could actually undermine

the safety of innocent Lon- -

doners. What nonsense!
Whatever the spark, it is

clear that politics is, by defini-

tion, the fuel for political vio-



The justified sense of anger
around the world at the
policies of the west in places
like Iraq must stand

outrage.

supposed expression of that



lence. In seeking to deny this
motivation, and replace it with
a supposedly potent perversion
of Islam, Mr. Blair displays a
shocking ignorance of western
history, as well as of Islam

(here in London he is being -

dubbed “Sheikh Tony Blair”
in some papers for his laugh-
able attempts to interpret
Islamic jurisprudence).

Guy Fawkes, John Wilkes
Booth and the Cato Street
plotters, whatever their per-
sonal psychologies, are all fig-
ures whose historical explana-
tion lay in political events of
their day.

That the cause of none of
these men would be judged to
have been right by modern
standards is a matter that
stands independently of the
repugnant tactics they used to
further it.

Similarly, the justified sense
of anger around the world at
the policies of the west in
places like Iraq must stand
independently of what a few
demented individuals chose
(unilaterally) to do in supposed

* expression of that outrage.

Fk: every crazed and -
imbalanced young man

seeking martyrdom, there are
many balanced, intelligent
voices calling Mr Blair to
account for having dragged his
country into one of the most
disgraceful and unjustified wars
of aggression in memory. More
than a million of them marched

‘in London in protest of the

war.
With typical self-righteous-
ness and a flash of what the
Economist magazine rightly
dubs “the most irritating grin in
British politics” the Prime Min-
ister chose to ignore them.
Now that he has succeeded
in making the world, including

the streets of London, so much
more dangerous a place, the
same self-righteousness is back
in use, this time in absolution
of any policy (some of) whose
opponents are terrorists.

Mrs Fatayi-Williams’ voice
was so compelling not just for
the resonance of the emotion
that it conveyed. A mother
from a distant land frantically
grieving a son lost in an act of
apparent senselessness far from
home; the context alone
evokes pathos in all balanced

people.

But more than the context
was the woman herself. The
intelligence, composure and
eloquence with which she
delivered a message of such
universal truth made its truth
all the more poignant. For that,
it is right that it should have
attracted the repetition that it
has among serious people.

But it would be very wrong

,to permit the eloquence, poise

and high feeling elicited by
these horrible attacks to be
highjacked by those politicians

keen to justify murderous,

supremacist and hypocritical
policies in other Peep le; s coun-
tries.

The tactic of terrorising peo-
ple is inhuman and wrong,
whether it is the slaughter of
innocents in a bus in London
or uninformed western politi-
cians deciding, at a safe dis-
tance, to snuff out thousands
of Arab, Muslim lives in an ille-
gal and ill-founded war.

True, never should the use
of terrorism as a tactic make
the public look any more kind-
ly at the cause of the perpetra-

.tors. But equally, never should

it make a thinking public look
any more kindly at the policies
of a government whose actions
have made the world a so
much angrier and more violent

place.

HUNDREDS of Bahami-
ans paid their final respects to
a man who cared for the
Bahamas’-HTV/AID’s victims.

The funeral service for Rev
Glenroy Nottage, director of
the All Saints Camp of Saint
John the Divine, which pro-
vided care for persons inflict-
ed with the HIV/AIDs virus,
was held at Faith United Mis-
sionary Baptist church on Sat-
urday.

Rev Nottage was in the
intensive care unit of the
Princess Margaret Hospital
since June and died on July
10.

In 1986 he established the
All Saints Camp which
“became a place of refuge and
healing to hundreds of
Bahamians” with the dread-
ed disease.

The Valley of
No Return |

__ By John Iomerlin. © 4
Illustrated by Michael Lacapa







AVASU CANYON, an Arizona branch of the
Grand Canyon, is famed for its natural beauty.
However, it is less well-known that floods occasionally





rampage through the valley on their way to the Colorado



River.



Two young people set out one afternoon in the autumn
of 1909 to visit “Dead Man’s Falls,” north of the Supai Vil-
lage. A prank played on them by a young member of the
Havasupais Indian tribe becomes potentially lethal when a






flash flood cuts off their return.




For the next several days the pair must endure cold and




hunger while attempting to make their way to safety; the



situation grows yet more deadly when they discover they




are being stalked by a hungry mountain lion.




This is a story of two young people ftom diverse back- —



grounds - one, the son of a mining engineer, the other, a




daughter of the tribal chief whose people are threatened



with exile from their ancestral land, and of the lessons




learned as they struggle for survival.

will reveal the “true meaning”
of the life worth of Rev Not-
tage.

“Glenroy decided, despite
lack of recognition and accep-

tance, as he saw it, he did it,”

said Mr Christie.

Rev Nottage’s work at the
camp was not without inci-
dent. His obituary stated that
he endured insults and public
ridicule.

Homage

Others paying homage, in
the four and a half hour ser-
vice, included Minister of
Social Services and Commu-
nity Development Melanie
Griffin.

Mrs Griffin recalled a visit
to the Lazaretto Road camp
and her talk with Rev Not-
tage. She said he told her of
the hurts, pain and the holistic
mythology he used.

She likened his life to that of
Mother Theresa “who made

untouchable.”

Rev Nottage’s brother and
leader of the Coalition for
Democratic Reform (CDR),
Dr B J Nottage, reflected.on
Rev Nottage’s childhood days,
his years of entertaining and
his past drug addiction.

“There is nothing like loos-
ing a brother or a sister. Some-
how it feels that the umbilical
cord was cut,” said Dr Not-
tage. a8

Dr Nottage hopes: that the
work of his brother will not
be abandoned. “

Pastor Hugh A Roach in his
sermon talked about God call-
ing on certain persons to make
sacrifices.

“Glenroy’s story is that God
could use anyone at anytime
to do God’s work,” he said."

He also noted the impor-
tance of abstinence and urged
persons who are getting mar-
ried to get “checked out” for
the HIV/AIDS virus. -

Legislation

The Government, through the
Ministry of Social Services and
Community Development, recent-
ly appointed a Working Group to
review draft disability legislation
to promote and safeguard the
rights of persons living with dis-
abilities. Headed by lawyer Dion
Hanna, the group is to make rec-
ommendations for additions, dele-
tions and’ amendments, where
necessary, to the draft legislation.

The Working Group, which is
comprised of representatives from

the church, government, private .

citizens and representatives of var-
ious non-governmental organisa-
tions, are expected to deliver their
report to Minister of Social Ser-
vices Melanie Griffin.
The.content of the draft legis-
lation was the result of two sym-
posiums on disability hosted by
the Ministry in New Providence
and Grand Bahama in conjunc-
tion with the Bahamas National
Council for Disability and the
Northern Bahamas Council for
Disability.

“I selected Melanie Griffin
. specifically for this job. because of

her own Christian spirit and

because I thought that if she, by
her own convictions, understood
the admonition in'the book of
Matthew that ‘Whatever you do
for the least of My brethren, you
do for Me’ that I could-rest
assured that we would have a
messenger who would not only
take the message, but act upon it
because it is a conviction she
shares,” Mr Christie said.

Prime Minister Christie said the

- fact that The Bahamas is a chain

of islands extending over 100,000
square miles, presents adminis-
trators and staff at the Ministry
of Social Services and Communi-
ty Development with some ‘“chal-
lenges in coping with the capital of
New Providence with over 200,000
people” while simultaneously pro-
viding programmes and initiatives
to children and persons in other
islands of the Commonwealth
“with an expanse of water in
between.”

“And so it is an invidious task
for them, but nevertheless I find
that every time we make one step
forward, we are bringing more
comfort to the national good,” he
said.

Prime Minister Christie
applauded Senator Morris for the

Pallet Jac









riehts of persons ing with dis-
abilities ee the region: ‘as



Services), as the Caribbean rép-
resentative on the: JUN Ad Hoc
Committee and as ‘a‘person liv-
ing with a disability.

Senator Morris developed alu
coma:in 1984 while a student af,St
Maty’s High-School, Jamaica. He
became completely ‘blind i in 1989
at the age of 20.



“To see you representing your
country and to have you come
here and speak to our people
must be a source of inspiration, to
them because it makes the point
very eloquently of the importaiice
of our recognising that we are‘all
equal in God’s eyes and we have
to continue to work towards that,”
said Mr Christie." |

“Your efforts to really help sén-
sitise our people throughout the
region is appreciated and, most
certainly, I am able to say ‘that my
Government is committed-to
making progress in ensuring that
we catch up, relative to where we
ought to be,” the Prime Minister
added.

Senator Morris thanked the
Prime Minister for his comments,
adding that the Government of
Jamaica “stands ready” to assist
The Bahamas in whatever way



‘possible to meet the objectives

outlined by Mr Christie.

“We have been introducing ser-
vices for the disabled over:a peri-
od of time and we have some best
practices that I am certain'will be
good to share with you,” said Sen-
ator Morris.

Senator Morris told Prime Min-
ister Christie that the prayers: of
the: Government.and the people
of, Jamaica are with and for
him.

“We were very Sninenied when
we heard of your illness; Because
as Caribbean brothers we'under-
stand the challenges and difficul-
ty that we all face from time! to

Not only is BTC being threat-
ened, he added, but other coun-
tries in the region are being
affected.

Just last week, the Executive
Director at the Public Utilities
Commission (PUC) Barrett
Russell, told The Tribune that
no company other than BTC
has ever had a licence to offer
VoIP services or any other
telecommunications service. He

added that the PUC had no
intention of issuing any other
licence.

This statement came after
San Diego-based Viper Incor-
porated announced its: newest
distribution partner, Viper Sys-
tems Networks (VSN) of the
Bahamas.

The statement said VSN prin-
cipal managing partner Elwood
Rolle and his team “have built a
formidable launch programme

would be a
‘considerable challenge’ to BTC

consisting of print advertising
and other marketing campaigns
to penetrate the Bahamas and
Eastern Caribbean markets and
bring Viper Networks products

_ and services to the region.

However Mr Russell said that
if either company opens up
shop in the country it “would
most certainly be an illegal act.”

Yesterday, Mr Roberts added
that the technical staff at BTC
are looking into the matter.

Austrian tourists shot

FROM page one

Mr. Wilchcombe, who was in
Bimini over the weekend, said
residents are concerned over
the incident, but they are
“strong” and will continue to
welcome persons to the island.

William Butler, a resident of
Bimini told The Tribune that
everyone is “upset” and “dis-
turbed” by what happened.

“It is definitely a concern. It is
a Serious matter because it hap-

pened to a tourist. The whole
Bahamas depends on tourism,”
said Mr Butler.

A resident of Alice Town,

Bimini, who wished to remain

anonymous, said that when
she first heard about the inci-
dent she was a bit concerned.
She questioned what it would
do to the tourism industry,
noting that tourism in Bimini
is “just coming back alive.”
However, she reported that
there are still tourists on the

island enjoying themselves.

“Last night (Saturday night)
at the Complete Angler night
spot, I noticed in there was still
packed with tourists. They still
seem to be carefree and happy.
Even in the streets there were
still tourists passing up and
down.

“T really don’t think it would
affect us too greatly. There are
tourists who will be concerned,
but others will still come because
of what we have to offer.”

PetroCaribe arcontanl
mrerorei (an impact on BEC’

@ By CARA BRENNEN
Tribune Staff Reporter

THE recently signed PetroCaribe agreement
between Venezuela, the Bahamas and several
countries in the region, could have a significant
impact on the profits of the Bahamas Electrici-

ty Corporation.

The deal signed by Trade and Industry Min-
ister Leslie Miller would allow companies to
purchase fuel directly from a manufacturer
rather than a supplier. By cutting out the middle |
man, it was felt that fuel prices, including gaso-
line could then be sold at cheaper prices to the

consumer.

Yesterday, while a guest on Island FM’s talk
show Parliament Street, Works and Utilities
Minister Bradley Roberts said the deal could

have major ramifications for BEC.
He said that if the Corporation was able to

purchase its bulk fuel through PetroCaribe, for
less, then the company would be able to take
those extra funds, pay off their debts at a high-
er rate or refinance their bills.

While electricity rates may not drop, the com- }

pany in the long term would save money, he

said.

Mr Roberts added that he is extremely proud _
of the progress BEC has made.

He noted that there have been less power
outrages considering that the country is in the
middle of summer. He said the challenge now

will be to upgrade facilities so that the corpora-

FREEPORT - The
pathologist at Rand Memo-

determine the cause of
death of a 22-year-old man
found floating in a Lucaya
canal on July 14.

An autopsy was per-
formed on the body of Von-
di Curtis McKie on July 21.

However, the cause of:.
death could not be deter-
mined because of the
advanced stage of decom-
position.

Police had classified
McKie's death as suspi-
cious.

The deceased, who was a
resident of Albacore Drive,
was spotted in waters at
Scarborough Place off

Midshipman Road. He

- wore navy blue shorts, a
pair of black sandals and
carried a black back pack.

Investigations are contin- .

Meanwhile, McKie's
body has been released to
his family for burial on July
23.

The public services announce-
ment will include encouraging
pregnant women to go early to
the prenatal clinics to receive
proper care, including having an
HIV test done.

She said if a pregnant woma
tests positive for HIV, she will
be started on medication to pre-
vent the transmission of the virus
from mother to child.

“We are trying to get all per-
sons living in the Bahamas to

“Tf you know you are HIV
infected then you need to under-

Nurse Bain said that the public

She added that the secretariat
‘wants the public service
announcements to be relevant to
all sectors of society, because
“HIV does not discriminate, it is

The campaign will be launched

‘Nothing concrete’ on ‘calamity fund’

a Budgetary allocation of 0.1 per cent
of GDP had come from “brainstorm-

In a report linked to its recent Arti- ture.

‘ ‘TOTAL spending by tourists

between 1990 and 2004, the
‘International Monetary Fund

that visitor numbers are
‘becoming’ increasingly domi-
nated by lower-spending cruise
ship passengers.

An IMF study of tourism

After averaging about 800 newly con-
structed units in 2002 and 2003, starts of

single-family houses surged to 894 units in

2004, the highest level since 2001. He also
pointed out that multi-family construc-
tion, which ran at relatively low levels in
the early 1990s, has also been‘strong.
The connection between prosperity in
the mortgage industry and the economic
performance of recent years, namely the

low inflation, had been more than a coin-

countries prone to catastrophes should
save enough to cover the expected
average annual cost.”

However, Mr Smith said that while
the idea of a ‘calamity fund’ and allo-
cating an initial $5 million to it had
been discussed with the IMF, the whole
idea would have to be “worked
through” at various levels of govern-
ment and did not represent a concrete
proposal.

The minister said the talks had come
about through.the Bahamas’ “almost
perennial problem with hurricanes,
being in the zone” and discussions on |
how the National Emergency Man-

- agement Agency (NEMA) would be
funded, such as would it be a part of
recurrent expenditure.

‘The IMF itself noted that funding



of NEMA, which is to have six per-
manent employees, under draft legis-
lation “is left open to donations and
unspecified budget allocations to be
provided by Parliament”.

Mr Smith himself said the whole -
tone of conversations with the IMF
was to ensure that hurricanes and their

Colina suffered $2.6m loss in 2004 last period

@ By NEIL HARTNELL
Tribune Business Editor

inancial analysts
have inferred that
Colina Holdings
(Bahamas), the
holding company
for Colinalmperial Insurance
Company, made a $2.6 million
loss' for'the three months to
December 31, 2004, given its
full-year net income of $313,687
and profit of $2.94 million for
the year to September 30, 2004.
‘Colina Holdings’ 2004 finan-
cial'figures, and the fact that
they were qualified by the exter-
nal auditors, “were not able to
satisfy” themselves that all relat-
ed-party transactions had been
disclosed and accounted, have
been the ‘hot topic’ in financial
and business circles since they
were published last week:
‘Several sources have openly
: spé¢ulated to The Tribune
' about whether the figures and



ments could have an impact on
Colinalmperial’s top A- (Excel-
lent) financial strength rating
from A.M. Best, the interna-
tional insurance rating agency.
Questions have also been
raised about whether the inde-
pendent directors on Colina
Holdings (Bahamas) Board
during 2004 knew of and
approved all the related-party
transactions over which the
auditors raised the red flag.
Those directors include Dr
Timothy McCartney, professor
at Nova Southeastern Univer-
sity’s School of Business and
Entrepreneurship, and Dr
Myles Munroe, the founder and
president of Bahamas Faith
Ministries International.
Several sources suggested .
that instructions issued by Col-
inalmperial in early July 2005
to: both Colina Financial Advi-
sors, the affiliate that acts as its
investment manager, and the
Colina Financial Group, its par-
ent and majority shareholder,

indicated that the regulators
were trying to ‘ring fence’ the
life and health insurer from
related companies in the group.

Colinalmperial asked Colina
Financial Advisors to redeem
all shares it held in investments
funds the latter managed and
administered - worth more than
$6 million - and “a significant
portion of the total value of
such related party investments
as at December 31, 2004”.

Repayment

ColinaImperial also request-
ed repayment of all advances
owing to it by CFG and an
“affiliated borrower”, worth
some $2.374 million, as at
December 31, 2004, plus

accrued interest: As at July 18;

this had not been repaid.
Elsewhere, Colinalmperial is
still awaiting regulatory
approval for its $2.303 million
acquisition of International
Reinsurance Managers (IRM),

- al’s

a US-based underwriting man-
agement company that provides
group health reinsurance to 100
companies in the Caribbean and
Latin America. On the date the
deal was completed, Colina
announced it had sold a 40 per
cent stake in IRM back to that
company’s management, loan-
ing them $737,137 to finance
that transaction.

The notes to ColinaIlmperi-
financial statements
revealed that Colina Holdings
“began assuming ‘an increasing
percentage of” IRM’s under-
writing risk for new business
assumed in a.reinsurance pool.
The amount of risk assumed
had increased from 30 per cent
in the 2003-2004 year to 80 per
cent in the 2004-2005 year.

Colina Holdings’ ‘chairman,
Emanuel Alexiou, struck a pos-
itive note in his message to
shareholders, saying that Coli-
nalmperial’s total asset base
would reach $400 million once

integrated into the company.

Net revenues for the year to
December 31 had risen from
$57.4 million to $91.3 million
through the integration of
Canada Life, but Mr Alexiou
said $5 million of non-recurring
expenses were incurred over
both purchases and the imple-
mentation of new computer sys-
tems. |

Accounting

However, several sources
pointed out that had it not been
for changes in the accounting

treatment of goodwill, which:

subjects this to an annual
impairment test rather than
being amortised over time, Col-
ina Holdings could have record-

ed a net loss for 2004. The.

change helped the company
write-back $1.878 million in
goodwill that had previously

-been amortised. "

It is too soon, though, to pass
judgement on whether Colina
Holdings’ series of acquisitions
has been a success or failure, as
it normally takes 18 months to
two years to complete the inte-
gration process and examine
whether cost savings, economies
of scale and shareholder value
has been delivered.

Colina’s view is that the com-
pany is engaged in a ‘cleaning-
up’ exercise on its balance sheet
following its recent acquisition
spree, plus the bloody and bitter
feud that saw Jimmy Campbell
removed from both CFG and
his position as Colina Holdings’

. president earlier this year.

“Subdued inflation had enabled mortgage
| interest rates to stay relatively low, and
’ together with a robust job market and
healthy gains in income, had increased the
demand for housing.

Since the Association's inception in
December 2003, Mr Smith said members
had attained a 97 per cent'success rate in
getting clients approved for mortgages from

other financial institutions, and the total

amount in dollar terms had exceeded $100
million.

The minister added that the single largest
expenditure by any household in the
Bahamas was the acquisition. of a home,

typically through a mortgage, making it
likely that one of the most important rela-
tionships entered into by households was
the one formed with a mortgage broker
and, ultimately, with a banking institution.

In the Bahamas today, Mr Smith said,
the economy: was poised for.increased

growth propelled by both domestic and for- .

eign investment, which will lead to higher

employment, higher income and an increase.
- in demand for new houses.

In these circumstances it was likely that

‘new demands will be placed on the profes- _
sion, and the manner in which mortgage -
brokers respond was likely to determine

the path for the future growth and devel-
opment of the association.

Mr Smith commended Troy Sampson
and James Bostwick for pioneering the idea
of a unified body of brokers. The two

_ approached him, during the association's

infancy stage, with a view to forming an
organisation to recognise mortgage brokers
in the Bahamas.

interest rate flexibility and the
ability of the commercial banks
to gain market share, an IMF
report has concluded, with the
regulator facing three “diffi-
cult” options for a transition to
“a more market-based” form
of monetary regulation.

Among the options faced by
the Central Bank and its Mon-
etary Policy Committee (MPC)
were for the regulator to issue
its own paper for open-market
type operations, with a maturi-
ty shorter than that for Trea-
sury Bills.

However, the IMF warned
that the experience in other
countries indicated that Cen-

The Fund also suggested
converting Bahamian Treasury
Bills into a monetary policy
tool, giving this instrument two
functions - deficit financing and
monetary controls. This,
though, might require the Gov-
ernment to effect a change in
law.

The third option suggested
by the IMF was the auction of
short-term Central Bank
deposits to withdraw liquidity,
and repurchase/reverse repur-
chase agreements of govern-
ment securities to withdraw or

inject liquidity..

Although acknowledsine
that the Central Bank’s port-

: folio was relatively small, lim-

iting its potential impact, the
IMF said its advances to the
Government - limited to 10 per
cent of revenue in the preced-
ing three years - could be secu-
ritised.



“Securitised advances should
be marketable, and the Cen-
tral Bank could consider engag-
ing in repurchase agreements
with the market using its port-
folio of government bonds and
securitised advances,” the IMF
said.

“The maturities of repos
should be shorter than that of
the underlying instrument, in
part to clearly differentiate gov-
ernment financing from mone-

tary operations. It could also ©

auction short-term deposits.”

THE TRIBUNE

MONDAY, JULY 25, ZU05, FAGE op



Visitors, from Page 1B

the Bahamas had enjoyed
“impressive growth” in visitor
numbers to reach the Govern-
ment’s much-touted five mil-
lion arrivals in 2004, the IMF
backed up the concerns of
many in the industry by con-
firming this had been driven
largely by cruise ship passen-
gers.

While cruise ship visitors had
increased by 9 per cent per
year on average since 1996,
stopover visitor numbers had
been “stagnant” since the ear-
ly 1990s.

To ram the point home, the
IMF said that in 2004, cruise
ship visitors accounted for 67
per cent of total visitors to the
Bahamas, up from 40 per cent
in the 1990s.

-- Tourism
The Fund added: “Howev-

er, the largest portion of .

tourism expenditure in the
Bahamas comes from stayover
vigitors and total tourism
spending has been stagnant.
This reflects the fact that cruise
ship visitors spend relatively
modest amounts while in the
country, and as a result total
tourism expenditure in real
terms has. barely grown from
1990 to 2004.”

But while the Bahamian
tourism industry and its per-

formance statistics have
become increasingly reliant on
the cruise ship industry, its is
questionable whether the eco-
nomic ‘trickle-down’ benefits
from the sector are felt as much
as the stopover segment.

The Tribune has previously
reported extensively on how
the cruise ships are increasing-
ly using their own private

- islands, where they effectively
control all the excursions and .

activities. They have also
squeezed the margins of
Bahamian tour operators and
attraction providers, making it
difficult for them to invest in
upgrading their amenities.
The IMF detailed how the
Bahamas’ “strategy of targeting
the upscale market” and com-
pletion of the Phase II expan-
sion at Paradise Island’s

Atlantis resort helped gener- -

ate a “sharp recovery” in per
capita stopover visitor spend-
ing, with average daily room
rates in this nation increasing
by 21 per cent between 1998
and 1999. Occupancy rates at
that time rose to 70 per cent. .

“Since then, occupancy rates
have been closer to 60 per cent
due to an increase in room
capacity and as a consequence
of the reduction in stayover
arrivals after the terrorist
attacks of September 11. In
2004, both average daily room

rates and occupancy rates start-

added.

The IMF report also found
that the Atlantis Phase II
expansion boosted casino earn-
ings by 32 per cent in 1999, and
increased Nassau and Paradise
Island’s importance as a tourist
destination compared to the
overall Bahamas. Nassau and
Paradise Island’s share of
stopover arrivals in the
Bahamas rose to 59 per cent in
1999-2004, compared to an
average of 51 per cent between
1991-1998.

Spending

Research by the IMF indi-
cated that private household
spending (consumption) in
tourists’ home countries - espe-
cially the US - was the most
important factor influencing
tourism demand for the
Bahamas.

The IMF said its research
indicated tourism in the
Bahamas was “a luxury good”,
but added that this nation’s rel-
ative price compared to that of
its competitors was not “statis-
tically significant”
mining tourist arrivals.

“A possible interpretation
would be that when competi-
tors lower their prices, the
Bahamas tourism operators are

in deter-:

forced to reduce their prices,
thus reducing stayover expen-
diture but with no impact on
stayover arrivals, as if the oper-
ators were targeting an occu-
pancy rate,” the Fund said.

Apart from the risks posed
by hurricanes and the relative
maturity of the Bahamian
tourism product, the IMF said
this nation’s leading industry
was also vulnerable to its
dependency on the US for its
customer base. The sector’s
position, the Fund warned,
could be jeopardised if there
was a major recession of ter-
ror attack in the US, and rec-
ommended that the Bahamas
seek to broaden its visitor mar-
ket.

Ministry of Tourism statis-
tics employed by the IMF
showed that the percentage of
total visitors to the Bahamas
who came from the US
increased from 83.8 per cent in
2000. to 87.2 per cent in 2004,
with numbers from Canada
declining from 5.4 per cent to
4.4 per cent, and Europeans
dropping from 6.8 per cent to
5.4 per cent, over the same
time period.

. While stopover visitors from
the US increased by 4.3 per
cent in 2004, European stay-

overs fell by 10.3 per cent com- .

pared to a 17.1 per cent
increase in 2003. Canadian

arrivals increased by 8.4 per
cent in 2004.

And the IMF also warned
that while the Bahamas’ strat-

egy of targeting the high end

of the visitor market had been
successful to date, and raised
tourist spending, it risked “sat-
uration and excess capacity”
because this was a “limited seg-
ment”.

Projects

The Fund said: “This risk
may not yet appear to be sig-
nificant, given the pipeline of
luxury tourism projects that
have been proposed to the
Bahamian authorities, but this
also underscores the impor-
tance of not distorting private
investment decisions by gov-
ernment incentives.

“The Bahamas should be
cautious. about building up
excess capacity that could lead



to a price war among opera-
tors and, in the end, jeopardise
this strategy.”

The IMF warning echoes
those given privately by Kerzn-
er International figures last
year, who feared that the $1.2
billion Baha Mar redevelop-
menmt of Cable Beach could
see it go head-to-head with
Atlantis and effectively split
the market for high-end
tourists, leaving both worse off.

Apart from Cable Beach, the
Government has announced a
whole range of high-end
tourism developments target-
ed at the Family Islands as part
of its goal to have an anchor
project for each island. It is
uncertain whether the
Bahamas has the workforce
and infrastructure to cope, and
whether it will be able to fill
all the rooms.

THE TRIBUNE



—_—



Resort, from Page 1B

of administration and external
affairs for Baha Mar, said that
as the group develops its prop-
erties, the convention space
was expected to increase sig-
nificantly.

The main reason behind the
expansion are the potential
benefits set to accrue as a result
of the 2002 signing of a TIEA
between the Bahamas and
Washington, which will permit
US citizens to deduct against
their annual income the
expenses they incur in attend-
ing business conventions held
in this nation from January
2006 onwards.

"This is something many
hotels have anticipated for
many years. It's a significant
move that will boost the
tourism sector simply because
we appreciate that groups and
conventions have a higher
propensity to spend as individ-
uals than other segments. This
augers well for growth in the
sector and we're looking for-
ward to it,” Mr Sands said.

Determine

While the immediate benefit
of the tax break will be difficult
to determine, as most of the
groups which would benefit
from the initiative have planed
their conventions years in
advance, the delay gives the

Bahamian hotel industry an
opportunity to do seme for-
ward planning.

According to Mr Sands, like
most properties in the
Bahamas, the Baha Mar resorts
- the Wyndham Nassau Resort,

the Radisson Cable Beach

Resort and the Nassau Beach
Resort - do not currently have
enough meeting space to sat-
isfy the requirements of many
US-based groups and conven-
tions.

Therefore, it was likely there
will not be a significant amount
of US companies that will be
able to take advantage of the
tax break immediately. That
scenario is likely to change
going forward however, Mr
Sands said.

Doubled

Both the Radisson and the
Wyndham have a principal
meeting room of some 10,000
square feet, along with., addi-
tional break out rooms. Inclu-
sive of the Nassau Beach, the
resorts have some 55,000

' square feet of meeting rooms

which will be doubled in size.
"Group revenue is a signifi-
cant part of our business; on
the food and beverage and
room side it is high. We're
looking for a minimum of
100,000 square feet to double

what we have, and we also
expect to double our rev-
enues,” Mr Sands said.

Meanwhile, Michael Hooper,
general manager of the British
Colonial Hilton Hotel, said the
Bay Street property was doing
extremely well for the summer,
with an occupancy rate of 92
per cent for July.

. Forecasts

He added that initial fore-
casts for August show the prop-
erty at an 82 per cent occupan-
cy level, compared to 77 per
cent for the same period in

2004.

September, however; is
expected to be somewhat slug-
gish, coming in at a 59 per cent
occupancy level, a slight dip
when compared to the. same
period last year, which posted a
61 per cent occupancy as resi-
dents and visitors sought shel-
ter from three hurricanes.

In terms of revenue, the
British Colonial Hilton’s aver-
age room rate for year-to-date
June was up by $18.

Executive

The executive vice-president

of the Bahamas Hotel Associ-
ation (BHA), Frank Comito,
said that with January 2006
start date for the convention
tax coming closer, hotel opera-
tors had been much more
aggressive in their efforts to
capture group sales out of the
US meetings market.

Facilities

"We know we need addi-
tional meeting facilities, and
there are several properties
that are upgrading and creating
additional meeting space in
anticipation of this new mar-

ket. There are efforts under-
way to capture more of that
market and there is some
expansion underway, with
Kerzner in particular, directed
toward attracting more meet-
ings business,” Mr Comito said.

Properties

He noted that smaller prop-
erties and Family Island resorts
were also looking to tap into
this lucrative market, with
hotels such as the Abaco Beach
Resort looking to expand their
facilities and create additional
meeting space.

@ By BRENT STUBBS
Senior Sports Reporter

IT was only a matter of time
before the Electro Telecom Dorcy
Park Boyz blasted into the top spot
in the men’s division of the New
Providence Softball Association.

On Saturday at the Churchill
Tener Knowles National Softball
Stadium, they took advantage of
that opportunity when they
stopped the New Breed 11-1 in the
opening game.

But their position was solidified
in the feature contest when last
year’s runners-up, Delsol Arawaks,
out-slugged the defending cham-
pions TBS Truckers 13-11. It was
the Truckers’ second straight loss
after they were knocked off 3-1 by
the Electro Telecom on Thursday
night.

“Right now we’re just trying to
put the pieces together,” said Elec-
tro Telecom’s player/manager
Mario Ford, “but we’re going to
take it one game at a time.

“Defensively, we’re going to
prove as a team, but once we play
good defence behind our pitchers,
we will hold them to less runs and
hopefully our offence will roll
around.”

With the outcome of Saturday’s
double-header, the Dorcy Park
Boyz are now in control of the
league. But Ford said there is no
stopping them now as they head
towards clinching the pennant and
eventually the league championship
crown. —

Heat” Bethel, who was serving a
one-game suspension after a bench-
clearing brawl against the Truckers
on Thursday night, his brother,
Edmund “Binks” Bethel got the
job done, as he did in the closure of
their last game.

Bethel, who consider himself to
be the “secret weapon” although
he is an old veteran, delivered a
five-hit, seven strike out perfor-
mance.

Offensive

But it was Arthur Thompson Jr,
who is normally in the coaches’
box, who came through offensively
to clinch the player of the game
honours.

Thompson, the son of Interna-
tional Softball Federation’s Hall of
Fame umpire Arthur “Old Art”
Thompson, cracked a three-run
home run in a four-run second
inning for the Dorcy Park Boys.

Playing first base defensively,
Thompson Jr went one for three
with four runs batted in. Binks
Bethel helped his own cause with a
2-for-4 night with a RBI and two
runs scored; left fielder Darren
Bowleg was three for three with
two RBIs and as many runs; and
second baseman Mardoche Simon
was 2-for-3 with a RBI, scoring a
run.

Keiron Munroe was tagged with
the loss for New Breed, who got a
one-for-three production with a run
from Clement Whylly. Their only
run came in the second inning..

Farmer wins
Clash of the
Speedsters

— By KELSIE JOHNSON
Junior Sports Reporter

AN early jump on the cycling
pack yesterday morning helped
Lee Farmer pull off the “Clash
of the Speedsters” title.

Farmer got out well ahead of .
the other cyclers, who had
devised a strategy plan to catch
him during the two- and- a-half-
hour race.

But Farmer’s big lead was to
large for them to close, even
with him cramping about eight
miles into the home stretch. The
lead allowed Framer to relax
and rehydrate his body.

-:He said: “It was a hard ride —
ny legs were sore from Satur-
day’s ride, plus I wasn’t pre-
pared to ride by myself this
morning. The competition was.
‘so far away.

>I got out to’ an early lead, I
think it was a minute and a half

“or two on the pack,.and ended

up getting cramped eight miles
out, just “finishing i in front of
them.

“Twas just feeling, and when
I cramped up it was more pain,
excruciating pain. I am happy
though that I did get out to that
big start, that helped me a lot.

Farmer, who rode more than
five miles on Saturday, clocked

‘ca time of 2h 9m 57s for the win.

Coming in second was Tracey
Sweeting in 2h 18m and 58s,
Canada’s James McDonald was
third in 2h 24m and 59s; Byron
Musgrove was fourth in 2h 28m.

For Sweeting the early morn-
ing ride was better than the race
held in Freeport.

Saying that yesterday’s
weather conditions were per-
fect riding conditions, Sweeting
believed that he would have
been able to catch up with
Farmer if it had not been for a
sluggish start on his part.

He said: “Today’s weather
was perfect, I feel great. The
ride was not has long because I
rode with the pack, but I tried
to pull away from them down
the home stretch.

“I saw it was to late to catch
and over take Lee, but I tried to -
wheel him since he did cramp
up. It was about 100 meters out
of the finish line when I made
my move, I should have made it
earlier but I didn’t.”

The lengthy ride attracted
several tourists who are now
looking to make the Bahamas
their home.

McDonald, a Canadian visit-
ing the Bahamas, joined up with
the cyclers to finish third, but
his greatest joy came when he
saw the amount of juniors riding
the course.

tively.

He said: “I’ve been riding
competitively for about five
years now, I love competing.
Today’s race was great — this
was the perfect weather for the
race, it wasn’t to hot or to cold.

“Where I am from we always
have to compete with the
weather, that’s our main thing. I
don’t think I could have done
any better than I did today.
That Lee Farmer is great, he
rode an excellent course.

“I am excited about moving
down here, I have children, so
seeing the younger riders out
motivated me.’

There were on two riders in
the women’s division: Julianna
Glinton and Carmel Suckey.

Suckey and Glinton rode dif-
ferent routes, the 45 mile and.
55 miles respectively.

Suckey timed 2h 32m 18s for
the official win, Glinton was .
awarded the second prize
although she rode with the men.
Her time was 2h 50m.

The junior division started"
out with more than eight rid-
ers, but only two endured the
45-mile trudge.

Johnson returning



o Bahamas for .
volleyball camp

i By BRENT STUBBS
‘Senior Sports Reporter

EVEN since she left the
Bahamas almost two decades ago,
Vanessa Johnson had always
dreamed about returning home
to give something.back to the

. game of volleyball-and basketball.

This week, the former double
sport standout and national team
player will achieve that reality
when she joins a number of visit-
ing coaches participating in the
first Jackie Conyers Volleyball
Camp.

’ Organised by the Bahamas
Volleyball Federation, the camp

_is a “thank you” gesture to Cony-

ers for her dedicated and tireless
representation of the Bahamas in
competition and her superb
arhbassadorship.

The camp will run from today
until Friday at the DW Davis

Gym from 9am to 4pm.

Johnson, who played with
Conyers in both sports, said she is
delighted to finally see a camp of
this nature being instituted by the
federation.

“Vm probably more excited
because I wanted to do this for
the past two to three years and
now it’s at the point where it will
actually happen,” said Johnson,
who currently lives in Atlanta,

Georgia where she is a volleyball
and basketball coach.
Johnson, a graduate of AF
ADDErley High, attended Ten-
nessee Tech University where she
was picked for the
All-Conference team all four
years and she currently hold the

university records for blocks and

kills per game.

Although she has earned her
bachelors, masters and EdS
degrees, Johnson is currently
teaching sports medicine and is
the head varsity volleyball coach
and assistant basketball coach at
North Gwinnett High School in
Atlanta. |

She will be joined by a number

of visiting coaches, including Del .

Hughes, Eric Harris, USAV vol-
leyball director, John Kessel and.
Olympic coach Toshi Yoshida.
Hughes has been coaching for
22 years and is certified at the
CAP II Level. He has enjoyed a

: sting coaching volleyball players

from Arizona, Georgia Tech,
Texas and Florida.

Harris, on the other hand, has
been coaching since 1989. He
recently coached a 17-and-under
club team from the Vertical One
Volleyball Club, based in Suwa-
nee, Georgia, in the national
championships that were held in
Salt Lake City, Utah.

Johnson, who was instrumen-
tal in securing the coaches to
attend, said because this was the
first year hosting the camp, they
wanted to bring in the best avail-
able talent. :

“We want to make this an
annual event and so we want to
make this the best one, as far as
the instructions and basic skills
are concerned,” she stressed.

“We will start off with the
basics and then we will split-them
up into the advanced and begin-
ners groups, so that nobody can
be intimidated.”

Conyers, who was considered
one of the best power hitters in
the Caribbean during her playing
days, said she is. excited about
how things are coming together
for. the opening of the camp.

“We’re still trying to finalise
everything with the coaches and
trying to confirm with everybody
before we get started,” she said.
“We've had some good response
from the schools and so we’re just
waiting to get started.”

However, Conyers was more
thrilled because Johnson will
finally get a chance to showcase
her coaching skills at home.

“It’s been long overdue,” she
said. “This is something she want-
ed to do for a long time, so we
decided to make it happen.”



Culmer content with BSF team prospects

‘@ By BRENT STUBBS
Senior Sports Reporter

“MANAGER Ali Culmer likes what
Ke see in the make-up of the Bahamas
Softball Federation women’s national
team which is heading to the XIII Cen-
ttal American and Caribbean Softball
Championships.

The team will leave town tomor-
row for Cartagena, Colombia, where
they will try to qualify for the VI

an American Softball -Champi-
Onships from November 13- 23 in
‘Guatemala.

“We look good. I’m very impressed
with the restructuring of the team,”
said Culmer, the treasurer of the BSF,
We have aus a few youngsters, who

have been looking very good in prac- |

tice.”

The Bahamas will have to finish in
the top four to advance to the XX Cen-
tral American and Caribbean Sports
Games, scheduled for July 15-30 in
Cartagena.

Based on what he and his coaching
staff, including Gary “Super” Johnson
and Lenny Newton from Grand
Bahama, have to work with, Culmer
said he is confident they can get the
job done.

“We have good pitching and they
have been working a lot with the pitch-
ing machine, so if we can play good
defence, we will be all right,” he said.
“We just need them to apply them-
selves to what we’ve been working on

thrilled to be a member of the team.

in practice when they hit the field and
I think we will be okay.”

While the pitching will be the team’s
strength, led.by ace Mary Edgecombe,
Culmer said their offence should come
around, especially bunting, one of the
main areas they have been working
on.

“All around, I think we're pretty
strong,” he said.

If there are any sieanenine Culmer
said it would be their lack of experi-
ence and exposure to some of the
younger ball players playing in a big
tournament.

“But because of our restructuring
and getting them to look ahead to the
future, I think they will rise to our
expectations.”

Joining Edgecombe in the pitching
department are Grand Bahamian Ner-

essa Lockhart, Sherry Beneby and.

Latoya

Humes (also from Grand Bahama).

-Catchers are Dorothy Marshall and
Monique Sears from Grand Bahama.
The infielders are Lakeisha Robinson,
Rita Mackey, Jeannine Wallace, Linda
Knowles, Thela Johnson and Beatrice
Riley.

The outfielders are Neressa Sey-
mour, Christine Hanna and Theresa
Miller. Chryshann Percentie and Alex-

-is Moss are the utility
players. Shervette Taylor will travel.

for the exposure.
Thela Johnson, the youngest mem-
ber of the team at age 17, said she is

“I’m pleased to get this exposure
to see what is expected of me three to
five years down the road,” said John-
son, one of the bright young stars in
the New Providence Softball Associ-
ation.

“T think we have a good team with a
lot of older players who I can look up
to learn rhore about the game of soft-
ball.”

The CR Walker Secondary High
12th grader said she is trying to learn

all the plays right now, but she admit-.

ted that she is nervous as she looks
ahead to making her first major inter-
national trip.

Clifford “Butch” Scavalla will travel

Triumph for

@ By RENALDO DORSETT

THE 10th annual Nelson
Cooper “Peace On Da Streets”
Basketball Classic culminated
with high-flying excitement,
keen competition and the
crowning of two new champi-
ons.

The nation’s premiere sum-
mer basketball tournament end-
ed on Saturday with the Cour-
tesy Food Store Saints and the
Real Deal Shockers capturing
the championship titles in the

junior and senior divisions.

respectively.

The Shockers, three-time
New Providence Basketball
Association Champions defeat-
ed the Heat, a team made up
primarily of Bahamian college
basketball players currently
playing in the United States.

The Shockers, led by Lasario
“Bones” Burrows, scratched
and clawed their way to a gutsy
48-40 win.

Playing like true underdogs
with a chip on their shoulder,
they attacked the basket early



and often. They also had a sti-
fling zone defencce that made
penetration for the Heat virtu-
ally impossible. Burrows set the
tone for the remainder of the
game, nailing a three-pointer
from the corner on the game’s
first play which garnered crowd
support for the Shockers.
They jumped out an early 9-0

lead and maintained their ini-’:

tial defensive intensity through-
out the entire game. -
The Heat seemed startled by

the initial intensity of the Shock- °
ers and were unable to keep’
pace with their speed, which led...

to a number of turnovers. and
easy Shockers’ baskets.

Real Deal led at the half 29- 7

21.

The second half produced
much of the same: the Shockers
were disruptive on the defen-
sive end of the court and
refused to allow the Heat back

into the game.

Heat guard Mitchell Johnson
put on a three-point shooting
display, hitting on three con-
secutive attempts late in the

game, bringing his team to with-

The Saints won 53-37 to take

the title.

Led by Terrence Brown, they
used their quickness to domi-
nate éarly with numerous fast-
break opportunities.

ers in Haiti to overcome their differences

and work to end violence in the Caribbean ©

country was signed by about 60 supporters
Saturday, according to Associated Press.
Killings and kidnappings have threatened
| to delay upcoming elections in the country,
but Raymond A. Joseph, Haiti’s ambassador-
designate to the United States, said the reso-
lution is a clear sign of bipartisan desire to
end the violence.
“There is at least some kind of dialogue
taking place,” he said. “For ‘the first time;
there is the idea that people who have dif-

ferent political positions are not your ene-
mies.’

Peace

The two-day conference brought together
about 75 people to discuss ways to.seek peace
and democracy, said Haitian Support Pro-

- ject spokeswoman Ka Flewellen.

“Now is the moment to end business 4s
usual and try to find a new way to move fot-
ward,” Flewellen said. “More Haitians are
hungry, without work, and without the capa¢-
ity to sustain themselves, Violence and pover-
ty are feeding on each other.” rare j

Samuel “Ninety” . Knowles’

FOR THE RECORD

The release of findings by a special panel considering
the fate of COB president Dr Rodney Smith was sus-
pended last week when Dr Smith was admitted to hos-
pital. The special advisory panel was convened to con-
sider the act of plagiarism committed by Dr Smith and
was scheduled to make its findings public last week.
College of the Bahamas council chairman Franklyn Wil-
son said that the release of these findings were sus-
pended when Dr Smith was admitted to hospital “some
days ago”. The findings will not be revealed until Dr
Smith has recovered. The illness is not believed to be life

potential of thousands of
youth, whose talents, once
cultured, could reap rich ben-
efits for the Bahamas.

it is this sentiment that inspires the
team at the Farm Road Urban
Renewal project, now embarking
upon its fourth year.

This summer, they have taken their
most ambitious steps thus far, to reach
as many children as possible in order
to re-shape their ideas about life, fam-
ily and country.

According to project chief ASP
Stephen Dean of the Royal Bahamas
Police Force, enriching the lives of
the children of the ghetto is a crucial
investment for the government of the
Bahamas.

“We want to resurrect and restore
discipline in these kids the way it was
instilled in myself and persons growing
up in my time,” he said.

He plans to restore manners and
discipline the “old-fashioned” way —
the way he was taught. Therefore,
hundreds of children in the Farm
Road area have been attending local
church youth groups, and the Farm
Road Youth Band has grown to be
one of the most popular and well-liked
marching bands in New Providence.

According to Mr Dean, many of
these children never attended church
in their lives. He recalls one day,
when transportation had failed and
he could not get the boy’s group to
Evangelistic Temple for their regular
Wednesday Bible study and fun ses-
sion.

“They were actually upset with me,”
he said. “Boys wanting to read God’s
word and participate in something
positive.”

This summer, hundreds of Farm
Road youth have been split between
two power-packed summer camps. .

Two hundred children are attending
a special music camp at Evangelistic
Temple. There, band members as well
as newcomers are learning to read

"tt the ghetto lies ihe-untapped

music, and will each be given the
opportunity to learn two instruments,

Eighty new instruments, including
trumpets, saxophones, clarinets, flutes
and trombones, have been donated
to the band, much to the excitement of
the participants.

They are also expected to know
how to.swim by the end of the pro-
gramme.

The other group will attend daily
summer sessions at East Street Gospel
Chapel. There, a tripartite agreement
between the church, the Farm Road
Project and the Ministry of Youth
exists.

Children, once considered “under-
privileged”, are learning arts and

crafts, drama, sports, and Bible.

lessons, as well as being treated to
educational tours.

In fact, through the project, 50
young boys have returned to New
Providence as “‘changed individuals”,
according to Mr Dean.

They spent a week living the “hard
life” in the Berry Islands. Sponsored
by Evangelistic Temple, they were
taken to a cay where no buildings

stood. They lived in tents, and learnt
the true meaning of “working to catch
your food” as they fished every day
for their meal. There, tutors also
trained them in discipline drills, and

held sessions focusing on self-aware-

ness and development, and male
health and hygiene.

Meanwhile, 20 girls went through
a similar experience at Camp Abaco.

Because many of these children
never took a plane ride in their lives, it
was a real adventure and learning
experience for them, ASP Dean said.

“We are providing alternatives for
them so when we say, ‘Don’t be in



gangs’, they have something else to
turn to,” he said.

For the girls, the Farm Road Urban
Renewal Project has given them new
options and opportunities, according
to one of the project coordinators,
Corporal Lisa Rahming.

She explained that all their lives,
their role models have been women
who hang on the blocks, or go club-
bing, and the like. But through the
numerous projects they have designed,
she sees a different group of girls.

“Their eyes have been opened to

see new things and go new places.’

Their experiences have been motiva-

o> ee pve ayy, |





tional, inspirational and spiritual,
which enrich their lives. They are
being steered towards a more pur-

poseful life,” she said.

The project’s mentoring pro-
gramme, she added, has helped
improve the grades of many children
who once showed little or no interest
in even going to school.

How does this affect society? ASP
Dean said changing delinquent kids
into-productive citizens is a step
towards enriching Bahamian life, and

the maturity of society.

In the Farm Road community, for
example, he has seen the crime rate
drop in the area. For the first time, he
said the community has taken a dif-
ferent attitude towards the police.

Today, he can boast of the ability to
gather hundreds of young men in the
area in a relatively short period of
time to assist other community mem-
bers. The project has done this time
and time again in order to clean up
overgrown lots, renovate homes, build
proper bathroom facilities, or clean
up schools.

The community’s relationship with
police has also grown, he added.

Police can now gets tips on criminal

activities in the area, and have even
helped young persons in situations

before the courts.

Recently, when police officer Hen-
ry Curry was gunned down in the area,
Mr Dean said he saw a large out-
pouring of support and even outrage
from community members, including
those whose actions were known in
the past to be of a criminal] nature.

To his surprise, young men in the
area recently approached him to see if
the project would assist in sponsoring
a basketball tournament they wished
to host.

Success

He was able to assist, and the event,
he said, was a success. Two hundred
participants flocked to the Hay Street

Park, and the tournament was held in "

honour of fallen police officer Jeffrey
Tucker.

Ms Rahming said due to the suc-

cess of the programme, businesses,
civic organisations and churches are
calling in and asking how they can
lend a hand.

Businesses

Many of the businesses chose to

remain anonymous, but she pointed ,

out Big One shoe store, because the
company’s donations have helped
many of the children get new school
shoes where they wouldn’t have been
able to get a pair otherwise.

Brand new clothes, school books
and supplies, and instruments are just
some of the perks of being an active
part of a programme that is making
waves in the ghetto.

ASP Dean recalled that former gov-

Allen made a contribution of $15,000
that helped to boost the goals of the
programme as well. Mr Allen, he said,
grew up in Farm Road.

During his time in office, Mr Allen
- has repeatedly called on the private
sector to assist government in help-
ing “the darlings of our nation”
achieve their true potential.’

MP for Farm Road, Prime Minister
Perry Christie, will be visiting the chil-
dren this week.

Surprise

According to Ms Rahming, the
Prime Minister is in for a pleasant sur-
prise.

Another important partner, ASP
Dean added, is the parent of each
child. He said he has found that
although they may come from single

THE TRIBUNE



parent homes, or may have many sib-
lings, parents are excited about the

programme and proud of the leaps

and bounds their children have made.

The children of the ghetto, once
forgotten, have been arisen from a
deep sleep and today, show signs of .
vigor and hope.

Potential

“These children have a wealth of
potential,” said Corporal Rahming.
“However, in their lives there was

no one to push them. But here we are,

saying, ‘I’m watching you and. I’m
going to help you along the way’.
These children have natural talents,
and when they hear the community
applaud them and encourage them,
they do better. They know they re
doing something good.”

ernment Minister Algernon SPB



“Right now our entire focus
and prayers go toward Dr
Smith and his recovery. There is
no set date as to when the pan-
el’s responsibilities will be
resumed, but as of now they are
suspended.”

— Franklyn Wilson, chair-
man of the College of the
Bahamas Council on how COB
president Dr Rodney Smith’s
illness has affected the release
of findings by,a panel consid-
ering Dr Smith’s future at the
college. .

The panel was convened
after the president admitting
to plaigarising a portion of a
speech he delivered at a COB
graduation exercise in May.

“The fishermen here are com-

plaining but there isn’t a thing
they can do. First it was $5 now

“(John Morley was) lover of
his country. If anyone ever had
any doubts about his creden-
tials as a Bahamian let it be said
that he was one of the finest
fishermen ever produced in the
Bahamas and loved it with a
passion.”

— Sir Geoffery Johnstone
on the death of his lifetime
friend, John Morley. Mr Mor-
ley died on Sunday, July 17
after suffering for sometime
with a brain tumour. He was
72.

“On a personal basis, Mr
(John) Morley took a keen
interest in my political develop-
ment over the past 24 years, and
he has been a strong and gener-
ous supporter.

“He was always sincere and
he spoke with the conviction of
his beliefs. I will dearly miss
him.”

— FNM leader Tommy
Turnquest on the death of
Realtor John Morley.

“This man came to the air-
port from Red Bay in an emer-
gency case, but no charter pilot
could bring him into Nassau as
they were warned that they will
be severely dealt with. The pilots
wanted to take the chance but
they couldn’t. So the man died
at the airport — waiting.

“They opened the airport
during the regatta and then
closed it, So I guess the regatta is
more important than any other
normal life time. This incident
happened here today because
of that closure.”

— A source on the death of
Rufus Knowles Jr, 21, who
died at the San Andros airport
last week after waiting for
almost three hours to get an
emergency flight to New Prov-
idence.

According to the source, the
pilots at the closed airport were
warned that they would be
severely punished if any flights
left the runway.

THE Bahamas got its first

real taste of the hurricane sea-
son last week when’ a tropical
storm warning was issued for
Eleuthera, New Providence,
the. Berry Islands, Abaco and
Grand Bahama.

Franklin is the sixth tropical
storm to form for the 2005 hur-

The storm was projected to
move away from the Bahamas
by Saturday; however, some
computer projections showed
the depression turning back
towards the Bahamas on Tues-
day.

RESIDENTS of Moores

Island, a small island just south
of Abaco, are suffering under

“excessive” prices for gasoline,

and other petroleum products,
it was reported last week.

‘s With only days remaining
before the opening of the craw-
.fish Season, the fishermen are
worried that the price could
excéed its current high of $5.50,
and reach well beyond the $6
mark.

Predominantly a fishing com-
munity, residents have been
struggling to cope with the clo-
sure of the only gas station on
' the island following last year’s
active hurricane season.

- Residents on Moores Island
complain that they are also
having to pay $5.50 for a gallon
of kerosene.

Currently the price for.a gal-
lon of gasoline at the pumps in
New Providence averages
about. $3.72. Although
kerosene is not a price con-

trolled item, it is being sold in
Nassau for $4.10 a gallon.

SUCCESSFUL real estate
pioneer, John Morley of
Brown, Morley and Smith Real
Estate, surrounded by his fam-
ily, died peacefully at his
Ryswick, Montagu foreshore
home last week.

Mr Morley, who had suf-
fered for some time with a
brain tumour, was 72 years old.

Voted “Business Person of
the Year” by the Bahamas
Chamber of Commerce in
1999, Mr Morley devoted his
time and energies to the
Bahamas Real Estate Associa-
tion from 1962. Even as a child
Mr Morley possessed a keen
sense for business, working in
his family’s Harbour View
Guest House on West Bay
Street before launching out on
his own.

In 1965 he formed a real
estate partnership, Morley and
O’Brien, specialising in resi-
dential and commercial sales
throughout the Bahamas. Lat-
er the firm was merged with
McPherson and Brown, to
form Real Estates Sales and
Rentals (Bahamas) Limited, a
complete brokerage and prop-
erty management company.

Together the partners con-
tributed substantially to real
estate-development in the
Bahamas.

HENRY Hugh Smith was
acquitted last week of two
charges of murder.

Chief Justice Sir Burton Hall
instructed the three-man, nine-

woman jury to deliver a not:

guilty verdict, finding that the
prosecution, having closed its
case, did not provide sufficient
evidence to convict Smith.
Terah Bethel, 28, and Larry
Fernander, 52, were living
together when they were shot
to death at their home in the

‘Garden of Eden, Love Beach,

on July 21, 2000.

Smith, a former police offi-
cer, was extradited from
Atlanta, Georgia and brought
to Nassau on March 21, 2001.
He was officially charged with
the murders.

This was the third time that

Smith had stood trial for these .
crimes, but it was the first time °

that the case was followed

Privy Council in London on the
decision which the Court of

- Appeal handed down in May.

The decision overturned a rul-
ing made by Justice Hugh
Small in June, 2004 that
Knowles was being unlawfully
detained. A writ of habeas cor-
pus had been issued'on the
grounds that Knowles’ case had

_been prejudiced.

US president George Bush
had designated Knowles a “for-
eign narcotics kingpin”. Justice
Small saw this as “substantial
grounds” for concluding that
Knowles would not receive a
fair trial if extradited to. the
United States.

If allowed to. stand, Justice
Small’s ruling would have
meant that the authorities
would have had to release
Knowles from prison.

In May of this year, however
Appeal Court Justices Joan
Sawyer, Maurice Churaman
and Milton Ganpatsingh over-

turned Justice Small’s decision’

after ruling that he did not have
jurisdiction to hear the matter.
