Ingraham speaks
at Freeport rally

& By KARAN MINNIS
Tribune Staff Reporter

“GRAND BAHAMA, I
have-come to tell you I am
back!” former prime minister
Hubert Ingraham announced to
a cheering crowd at his first ral-
ly in Freeport since being elect-
ed leader of the FNM.

The Free National Move-
ment, he said, had heard their
cries for help. The party was
ready to answer their call. He
asked Grand Bahama’s support
in helping “the FNM to become
the government again.”

“In the past you have been
good to me,” Mr Ingraham told
supporters at last night’s rally.
“And, you have been good to,
the FNM. You made our Marco
City victory possible in 1990
when the FNM David beat the
PLP Goliath. You showed the
way in 1992 and again in 1997
when the FNM brought deliv-
erance from 26 years of PLP
rule and ushered in nine years
of ‘Better under the FNM’.”

“Some of you parted compa-
ny with us in 2002,” he said.
“That happens in families some-
times. We don’t always see eye-
to-eye and we go our separate
ways for a while. But blood is
thicker than water; and we are
family; and Grand Bahama is
FNM country.”

According to Mr Ingraham,

. the people’s cry for help will be
answered.

“Your FNM sees the jobless-
ness, the neglect and the mis-
management which you are
being made to suffer under the
yolk of this tired, unfocused and
directionless PLP government,”
he said. “I have come to tell
you, that with your help, we will
roll them out next time, roll

them right out of office.”

“We understand that crafty
image makers made Perry
Christie and the PLP look like a
new, finely-tuned working
machine in 2002. But it was all
smoke and mirrors. That fresh
breeze of 2002 turned out to be
an ill-wind without even the
slightest hope for help.”

Mr Ingraham said that the
FNM has “the capacity, the
experience and the know-how
needed to fix Freeport, to fix
Grand Bahama, to fix our
Bahamaland.”

“God willing, following the
next general elections we will
come, once again, to your res-
cue and aid,” he said. “We will
make it better once again for
you in Grand Bahama and for
all in all of Bahamaland.”

Hitting out against the PLP
government, Mr Ingraham said
that “this government has no
idea of what to do.”

“Mr. Christie and his Cabi-
net Ministers now say that our
economy is restored following
the hurricanes; indeed, restored
faster than anyone expected. If
that is the case why are they
granting investment concessions
and tax concessions the likes of
which have never been consid-
ered or seen by any government
of the Bahamas at any time
since these islands of ours were
populated and Woodes Rogers
became the first Royal Gover-
nor in 1629?” he asked.

“The Prime Minister doesn’t
want me to report to the people.
But he won’t report. He talks
a lot. He says a lot of stuff. But
he does not reveal the full
details of the agreements he is

_ Bahamas death
penalty case
goes to the
Privy Council

IN A landmark case for the
Bahamas, the London-based
Privy Council will hear the case
of two convicted murderers who
are contesting the mandatory
death penalty.

A team from'the Attorney
General’s Office will assist
Queen’s Counsel John Ding-
ham, who represents the gov-
ernment of the Bahamas in the
case of convicts Forrester Bowe
and Trono Davis.

As the law stands in the
Bahamas, a person convicted of
murder is automatically sen-
tenced to death.

However, counsel for Howe
and Davis are challenging this
practice, contending that the
death penalty is not mandatory
and that the judge has discre-
tion whether or not the death
penalty should be imposed
upon a person convicted of
murder.

The Privy Council, the final
Court of Appeal for the
Bahamas, will, starting on
Wednesday, hear whether the
death penalty is mandatory or
whether the judge can impose
some other form of punishment

Search for
men lost
at sea is

suspended

THE search for the two men
lost at sea — one of them
believed to be the brother of
Cat Island MP Philip “Brave”
Davis — was suspended yester-
day.

Mervin Davis and Nathaniel
Larimore are believed to be
dead after disappearing off Cat
Island when their boat capsized.

Mr Philip Davis was off the
island yesterday and was unable
to be contacted on the ‘matter of
his missing brother.

Lt Commander Terry Johns,
US Coast Guard press liaison
officer, said that the Coast
Guard has suspended the search
for the two men after an all-day
search on Thursday with an
OPBAT 860 helicopter.

“The men were last seen
clinging to the boat and unfor-
tunately we were not informed
until a day after they went miss-
ing. By the time we arrived on
scene the boat washed on shore.
Because these men had no life
jackets or equipment it is
unlikely for them to tread water
for this amount of time,” Lt
Com Johns said.

The Royal Bahamas Defence
Force, which has the overall
responsibility for rescue mis-
sions in that region, also sus-
pended their search yesterday.

In brief Disabled man

escapes injury
y inches

m@ By KARAN MINNIS
Tribune Staff Reporter

A DISABLED man narrowly escaped injury, and
possibly death, yesterday when a load of water pipes fell
off a truck on Shirley Street.

The pipes crashed into the road and onto the sidewalk
where he was using his mobile chair. He escaped injury
by inches.

The Pinder’s Customs Brokerage (PCB) delivery
truck had just passed The Tribune’s office when the inci-
dent happened.

The pipes got caught in an overhead power line. As
a result, about-15 pipes came crashing to the ground,
narrowly missing disabled Stanley Bethel, 39. He
escaped injury.

The truck, which had been delivering pipes to
Bahamas Hot Mix at the Airport Industrial Park, was
not.damaged in the accident.

Mr Bethel told The Tribune: “The pipes hit the back
of my chair, and my hands hit the iron bars over there,
but other than my chair being twisted, I think am okay.”

Mr Bethel, of South Beach, was heading to Princess
Margaret Hospital for a check-up after visiting his
father at Doctors Hospital when the incident occurred.

“J was on my way to get my (leg) cast checked,” he

said. “As soon as I passed that lamp-pole right there all.

I heard was splat and I felt myself being pushed a bit.”

Mr Bethel-said this was his second near-death expe-
rience for the year as he was also involved in a traffic
accident.

escaped injury yesterday

In brief

Man in court charged with one to kidnap his children, escape to Bahamas

AN AMERICAN man charged with
attempting to kidnap his children and escape
to the Bahamas has appeared ina US court.

It was alleged that if John Kindt Jr had
been successful, he would have permanent-
ly prevented his ex-wife from seeing her
children.

According to a report appearing on the
Ausbury Park press website yesterday,
Kindt has admitted taking his children but
said he didn’t intend to permanently flee
with them.

He said he wanted to disappear and
establish residency in another jurisdiction

* boy and 5-year-old

enforce shared custody of the children with
his ex-wile Anne O°Connor.

The 47-year-old father was described as a
“demanding perfectionist” wh » was upset by
a December 2000 court order granting him
limited time with his children and forcing
him to pay his ex-wife $ £00,000.

It is alleged that he therefore devised a
plan with his new wife Stacey and nephew
Matthew Aronson to take the children on
December 29, 2000, while they visited the
Kindts’ home for the holidays.

The mother reported the then 6-year-old
girl missing the following

22, 2001.

Their boat had broke down off the coast
of North Carolina and they had been forced
to call for help.

It was alleged that their plan included
securing passports and medical records;
withdrawing money, sending explanation
letters to the Kindts’ parents, leaving a mini-
van at the airport when they took a train,
and buying a $40,000 boat under a fake
name.

The vessel was allegedly stocked with

According to the Ausbury Park. press,
Kindt also used two books that outlined
how “to disappear or become invisible”.

Assistant Prosecutor Barry Serebnick
told the jury during his summation at
Kindt’s kidnapping trial hearing that his
dislike for his ex-wife “exceeded his love
for his children”.

“He didn’t want to lose his wife and he
didn’t want to lose his kids. So, he saw that

FREEPORT - Natario Fran-
cis, 18, was charged with the mur-
der of 34-year-old Tanya Penny
Pinder in Freeport Magistrate's
Court on Friday.

Francis, of Beginning Drive,
South Bahamia, appeared in
Court Three before Magistrate
Helen Jones.

It is alleged that on November
25, the accused, being concerned
with others while at Freeport,
Grand Bahama, caused the death
of Ms Pinder.

The body of Ms Pinder, an
office clerk, was found with a gun-
shot wound to the head last Fri-
day at the offices of the Cool
Breeze Apartments on Hudson
Avenue.

Her death is classified as the
14th homicide for the year in
Grand Bahama.

Francis, who was not repre-
sented by legal counsel at his
arraignment, was not required to
enter a plea to the charge.

was adjourned to February 28,

‘Two persons - 22-year-old Ray-
mond Darling and a L7-year-old

juvenile - have also been charged

with Ms Pinder’s murder, as well

cas other related charges, including

firearm and ammunition charges.

Their cases were adjourned to
February 26, 2005.

In other court news. Brian
Davis, 18. was charged with bur-
glary and stealing more than
$14,000 worth of items from a
house on Bahama Reef Boule-
vard.

It is alleged that sometime
between July 31 and August 1,
Davis, being concerned avith oth-
ers, unlawfully entered
the home of Almondo Talbot at
apartment LO7, Cove House.

He accused of stealing a com-
puter, a cell phone, a play station
and jewelry, together valued
$14,500.

Carlson Shurland represented
Davis, who was not required to
enter a plea to the charges.

Magistrate Jones told Davis
that both matters would be dealt
with together at a preliminary
inquiry.

Mr Shurland suggested several
reasons why the court should
grant his client bail. He explained
that Davis: was gainfully
employed as an apprentice at the
Grand Bahama Shipyard and had
no prior charges.

“T don’t think he will abscond
and it would serve no good to
incareerate him at this time as a
person is presumed innocent, and
I ask the court to give him the
benefit of the doubt,” he said.

Speaking on his own behalf,

Davis told Magistrate Jones that
he had been forced to assume the
role of the man in his household,
because he had grown up with-
out a father. He said that he has
been working since he was 13-
years-old to support his mother
and sister.

Magistrate Jones granted Davis
$5,000 bail with one surety and
adjourned to matter to March 14,
2006.

She warned Davis, who lives
at apartment 109, Cove House,
that if he interfered with Mr Tal-
bot, his bail would be revoked.

Concern over
the argument
on firearms

EDITOR, The Tribune.

BEFORE the argument to
allow shopkeepers, business
people to be armed with fire
arms goes too much further
hopefully the Minister of
National Security and the
Commissioner of Police will
denounce the sense of this
proposal.

Attorney Branville McCart-
ney, Chairman of the Safety
Committee of the Chamber
of Commerce is 100 per cent
wrong and he should be
proposing the obvious oppo-
site — disarm the criminal ele-
ment; stop the smuggling of
fire arms and reinforce the
penalties for the illegal pos-
session of an unlicensed fire-
arm and educate the public as
to how you avoid being
robbed?

Having years of practical

experience in how to handle
large amounts of cash I sug-
gest the police or others who
are so qualified in safety and
security measures will offer
seminars and their services as
to the simple how-to of reduc-
ing your liability and danger of
being robbed.

Just in passing — I find it
most interesting that the
Chamber of Commerce opens
its membership and executive
to a member of the legal pro-
fession. When did the
Bahamas Bar Association
open its membership to a
member of the public?

Attorney McCartney in my
opinion you are totally wrong
— God forbid we follow your

suggestion as the public will
be in greater danger as, sir,
isn’t it obvious that the crimi-
nal element’s supply will out
gun you and the shopkeepers
and take no prisoners and kill,
maim on sight to achieve the
success of their criminal
intent?

We need to remove fire.
arms — criminals carrying-out
crimes with a fire-arm should
face longer prison sentences,
add five-years to the sentence
— strengthen the laws for.the
possession of an unlicensed
fire-arm and campaign strong-
ly to educate the business per-
son and citizen how to avoid
robberies.

Views on Paul Adderley

THE EDITOR, The Tribune.

Everybody knows how Mr. Adderley feels

THANKS for reminding the public about
the scandalous attack by Paul Adderley on the
agreement between the FNM Government and
Sol Kerzner for the development of Paradise
Island. Mr. Adderley said he was speaking for
the leadership of the PLP at the time. Now
they have all changed their tune and are giving
away Bahamian land in order to attract
investors!

But you should never be surprised at Mr.
Adderley. Remember how right up to the 1972
election he was so adamantly opposed to the
PLP and right after. the election he abandoned
his NDP and joined up with the PLP? He was
just in time to be included in the delegation for
the independence constitution conference in
London! ~

about representing the Queen and how
opposed he says he is to accepHie Hououts
from Her Majesty.

He didn't even want to give gualstied
Bahamian lawyers like Sir Cecil Wallace
Whitfield their hard-earned QCs Queene
Counsel).

Now just look at him. Presiding at Gow
ernment House as the Representative of Her
Majesty Queen Elizabeth II! He will see noth-
ing wrong with now going to Buckingham
Palace and have the Queen make him Sir Paut.
‘What hypocrisy!

Cuban doctors ‘a good move’

. EDITOR, The Tribune.

MY VIEWS on the govern-
ment bringing Cuban doctors
here are that I believe that is a
very good move because many
of the medical professionals in
this country have no respect for
the Bahamian public — that is as
far as my experience goes with

the medical system in this coun- -

try.
Are the medical doctors more
concerned about the money they
receive rather than the care of
the. patient?
To me that is the wrong atti-

Officials set
for disaster
management
discussions
in the US

BAHAMIAN officials
are to travel to Rhode
Island on Monday for dis-
cussions with the US

National Guard on the sub-

ject of disaster manage-
ment.

The aim of the discus-
sions, according to local
officials, is to establish a
formal State Partnership
Programme (SPP) between
the Bahamas and Rhode
Island.

National Emergency
Management Agency

(NEMA) co-ordinator Carl

Smith will be joined by
Captain Raymond Far-
quharson of the Royal
Bahamas Defence Force
and Assistant Superinten-
dent Michael Barnett of
the Royal Bahamas Police
Force.

The visit is being co-ordi-

nated by.the United States
Navy Liaison Office
(NLO) in Nassau and will
be held December 5 to 9 at
the Rhode Island National
Guard Headquarters in
Cranton, Rhode Island.
The visit is expected to
familiarise key personnel
and members of the NLO
in Nassau with the opera-
tions of the National
Guard, state and local
police agencies, and Rhode

Island’s Emergency Opera-

tions Centre (EOC).

‘It is anticipated that a
three to five-year plan will
be drafted for future SPP
events and projects in
which Rhode Island can
support the Bahamas in its
disaster management

_ efforts.

Also attending will be
officers from the NLO in
Nassau and senior officers
from the United States
Southern Command
(SOUTHCOM).

with CMA canal /

@ By KARAN MINNIS
Tribune Staff Reporter

A BAHAMIAN student is the first person in
44 years to pass the first two parts of the Certified
Management, Accounting (CMA) examination
as an undergraduate.

As a result, University of South Carolina Aiken
senior Steffon Cooper is now being view as a
role model among his peers.

Speaking to The Tribune yesterday, Mr Coop-
er said that since passing the initial phases of
the exam, he has received e-mails from persons
stating that his efforts have encouraged them to
push forward with their ambitions.

The four-part CMA exam aims to cover a
broad range of topics including economics, busi-
ness finance, situational ethics and decision mak-
ing.

Ethics

The exam places a great deal of emphasis on
ethics and is designed to test decision-making
skills and critical thinking.

According to Mr Cooper, it is “an invaluable
credential for professional advancement and for
broadening professional skills and perspective”.

Mr Cooper said he does not want his “whole:

experience to go unnoticed,” and would like for
his achievement to encourage others to excel as
well.

“I just came home to hopefully get other stu-
dents to see that they can excel and can do some-
thing good,” he said. “Its a great investment for

people, especially young students, in the busi-
ness world. This is why I want more people local-
ly to take an interest in it because it is a great
asset for young adults in the business world,”
Mr Cooper said.

He is now attempting to spread information
about the exam through the local media, and
hopes to get a spot on ZNS.

Mr Cooper, who graduated from Nassau Chris-
tian Academy in 2001, was awarded a full schol-
arship from USCA and has been a full time stu-
dent since January 2002.

Expected to graduate this December with a
bachelors degree in business administration, Mr
Cooper is determined to raise awareness about

the CMA exam,

He expects to take the final two parts of the
exam by February 2006 - a challenge he is prepar-
ing for with hard study “and lots of prayer”.

WHY YOU VEX?

WHY YOU VEX?

“I vex with the fact that my
road hasn’t been paved now for
over two years. [’ll give the gov-
ernment the benefit of the
doubt that the road has never
been paved, and they might
want to wait until all the infra-
structure is in place, but two
years? When it rains water set-

‘tles and’ when’ you drive through
‘you ‘constantly dig ‘out’séctions

of the dirt'road. What’s the
worst part is that when it rains
now, mosquitoes will kill you.”

Danottage Resident

“T vex that they fix that traffic
light before KFC on West Bay
Street. Now the traffic is backed
up all the way by the Hilton
now. And why are these police
standing on these boxes direct-
ing traffic — just building up
traffic.”

Brian Major, Cable Beach

“I vex cause Bahamians like
new roads but when the gov-
ernment are repairing the roads
they are complaining about the
traffic that causes. People can’t
even wait until the road is fixed,
they'll be right there blowing
their horn, making a bunch of
noise complaining. Why can’t
we be satisfied?”

Hurricane
relief efforts

BAHAMAS Faith Min-
istries International (BFMI)
joined the list of local and
international organisations
that have contributed to the
Hurricane Wilma relief
efforts by donating more
than $11,000 in money and
supplies.

Pastor Richard Pinder said
the donation is the first of
several initiatives BFMI is
planning to assist the hurri-
cane victims in the Northern
Bahamas.

“We feel their pain, we
feel the loss of those families
who have lost so much, who
have suffered so much in
Grand Bahama and Abaco as
_ aresult of Hurricane
Wilma,” said Pastor Pinder.

“This first initiative i
involves food, clothing, water —
and cash, and came together
as a result of our members
and our business persons in
the fellowship, who saw the
need to assist their brothers
and sisters during their time
of need,” he said.

three Bahamian Governors

Christmas
craft show

A WIDE range of native
decorative options for this
festive season are being
offered at the 11th annual
Bahamian Christmas Craft
Show today at the Wyndham
Nassau Resort.

‘Held from 11am to 7pm,
the event is being presented
by the Ministry of Tourism
and the Bahamas Hotel
Association, and will feature

-65 craft booths, a fashion
show, a special culinary cor-
ner as well as a visit from
Santa Claus.

‘In addition to entertaining
the show’s visitors, the event
is further geared towards
creating “linkages in tourism
and other sectors, (increas-
ing) the level of employ-
ment, while also creating a
chain of revenue and cater-
ing to visitors and Bahami-
ans alike,” the show’s organ-
isérs said.

The Ministry of Tourism
said the event has grown
“tremendously” and the
quality of the products has
“greatly improved”. -

» Bahamians are being
urged to enter into this
lucrative market and organ-
isérs hope that eventually,
évery souvenir shop will sup-
ply authentically Bahamian

@ RESIDENTS of South Andros had an opportunity to voice a number of concerns on Thurs-
day when Housing Minister Shane Gibson (second left) visited to hand out building supplies to
families whose homes were damaged by Hurricane Wilma.

@ By TIFFANY GRANT
Tribune Staff Reporter

CONGO TOWN - South
Andros communities are crying
out to government to establish a
water supply in the area.

Concerned South Androsians
told The Tribune on Thursday
that all the communities from
south of the Bluff to Mars Bay
are desperately in need of run-
ning water. .

Residents said they are forced
to depend on rain water tanks
with electrical water pumps, which
can. be very.costly to install.

Cost

Barbara McKinney of Kemp's

Bay said that in some instances, .

installation can cost thousands of
dollars.

She explained that materials for
a water tank can cost up to $1,500

_and a gutter system another $500.

She. added that a holding tank

(BIS photo by Gladstone Thurston)

and electric water pump each cost

$300. Labour alone, she said, can
add up to $2,500.

Ms McKinney said that in times
of drought, she used to be able to
get water from a local school's
pump, but access to this supply
has been discontinued.

Therefore, Ms McKinney said,
she has resorted to travelling to
her mother’s home to stock up on
water.

"It is hard to live in your house.
It is hard to have a modern house
with everything set-up and then
you have to drag water in by con-
tainers and have them there
stored-up. I moved in my house
about 14 years ago, and I have
been waiting for water ever
since," she said.

Rowena Sands of Pleasant Bay .

also struggles because of a lack of
running water.

"I only have a well and the
water is hard. I have to change
fixtures in my bathroom twice a
year, because salt water messes





Residents call for water
supply in South Andros

up everything.

“If the government can send
water here I'll be happy, because
you even can't catch a good bath,"
she said

Chief councillor of South
Andros Zebedee Rolle told The
Tribune that when Prime Minister
Perry Christie and Minister of
Works Bradley Roberts toured
the island in October, they. were
informed of the water plight of
South Andros.

"IT pointed out to Minister
Roberts the need for potable
water at the Deep Creek Primary
School. They expressed their con-
cern and said they will solve the
problem," said Mr Rolle.

The Tribune contacted Mr

“Their full and only explana-
tion for the loss of jobs in Grand
Bahama is that we had two hur-
ricanes last year. And then, we
had another hurricane, Wilma,
this year, and ‘lo and behold’ it
seems this one caught them just
as ‘off guard’ as Frances and
Jeanne did last year,” he said.

“No one ever said running a
government was easy,” said Mr
Ingraham. “It takes work, hard
work, 24/7. No, it ain’t all glam-
our and ceremony. It’s about
leadership. Yes, leadership.
That is what this Government
lacks — leadership.”

“We delivered The Bahamas
from the corrupt, scandal-rid-
den, and compromised pre-1992
PLP government and we are

not now prepared to permit this -

PLP government to take us
down that same old road a sec-
ond time,” said Mr Ingraham.
“Our investment policy facil-
itated the inflow of more than

$4 billion in direct foreign

investment during our two
terms in office, more than $1
billion directly into this island’s
economy creating thousands of

“Under the FNM unemploy-
ment in Grand Bahama fell
from 16.4 per cent in 1992 to
6.4 per cent in 2002.

“In 1992, 3,610 persons were
unemployed in Grand Bahama;
by 2002 the number of unem-
ployed had dropped to 1,610 -
less than half.

“In just the first three years
in office, the FNM created
12,740 new jobs across the coun-
try; 1,560 of those jobs were cre-
ated right here in Grand
Bahama.

“In the first three years in
office they (the PLP) have cre-
ated 5,650 jobs — less than half
that of the FNM.

“In the first three years of
FNM government Grand
Bahama’s unemployment rate
dropped from 16.9 per {cent to
10.2 per cent.

“Under the FNM the num-
ber of employed persons in
Grand Bahama increased from
16,300 in 1992 to 20,533 in 2001;
and, household incomes in
Grand Bahama increased by
more than 50 per cent.

“In their first three years in
office, they have created 420
jobs in Freeport.

“In our first three years in

office we created 1,560 jobs in

Grand Bahama, five times as
many as the PLP.

“Under the PLP, Grand
Bahama’s unemployment rose
from 6.4 per cent in 2002 to 9.3
per cent in 2004;. that’s last
year’s number. That’s before
the Royal Oasis closed putting
some 1,500 persons out of work.

.“In the first three years of
PLP government beginning in
2002 the number of unem-
ployed souls in Grand Bahama
has risen to, in my estimation, at
least 5,000.

“And, you know the kind of
ripple effect of that on other
businesses and hence, jobs!

“In three and a half years
they’ve only managed to facili-
tate or create less than half the
economic activity fostered by
the FNM during our first three
years in office. I tell you they
are sitting down on the job and
they’re getting paid on slack.
That’s not right,” he remarked.

rraham speaks at —
rally in Grand Bahama

“By not creating enough jobs
the PLP has lost the backing of
the people to whom they
promised hope and help.

“The FNM success between
1992 and 2002 was fuelled by
foreign and local investment
and dedicated, responsible and
accountable government: That’s
what made our success possi-
ble,” he reminded them.

“No, the FNM has no argu-
ment with any investor. We
have arguments with the appli-
cation of different rules for dif-
ferent people under the PLP.
And we have an argument with
secret agreements,” he said.

“T say that the failure of this
Government to take advantage
of developments which took
place here in Grand Bahama
between 1992 and 2002 is
astounding. Their attempt to
excuse their non-performance
in Grand Bahama is an insult
to the good people of Grand
Bahama,” Mr Ingraham told
the enthusiastic crowd that filled
and overflowed from East Sun-
rise Shopping Centre’s parking
lot.

Bahamas death penalty case

on a person convicted of murder.

Cheryl Bethell, deputy director of public prosecutions, and
senior counselors Vernal Collie and Stephanie Pintard will travel
to London on behalf of the government. ;

This case comes at a time when an increasing number of countries
are taking the stance that the death penalty is irreconcilable with

human rights awareness.

The debate over the death sentence as the ultimate form of — :

punishment gained new momentum this week as the United States
executed its 1,000th convict since the Supreme Court reinstated the

death penalty in 1976.

A Gallup poll last month showed that while a clear majority —
64 per cent — of Americans still favoured the death penalty, the
support for the capital punishment is at the lowest level in 27 years
and down from a high of 80 per cent in 1994.

try.

After official commis-
sioning of the cable, Mr
Roberts made the first call
— a conference call to
Prime Minister Perry
Christie in Nassau which
came through loud and
clear.

He told the audience
that Bimini had a bright
future, and the opportuni-'
ty to go to new heights.
"Biminites can hold their
chest out, today is a great
day.”

Residents say the new
system will be greatly
appreciated. ens

"Before we had to wait
ten to fifteen minutes just
to get on line," said Tal-
iana Albury an eleventh
grade student at the Bimi-
ni all age school.

"I think it will allow for
better, faster texting and
better online service,"
added Patrinella Levarity
a twelfth grade
student.

Ansil Saunders noted
the service will go a long
way in the further devel-
opment of the island’s
major bonefishing and
tourism industry.

Natasha Bullard-Rolle,

. the island's chief councilor,

said that the new technol-
ogy will ensure that Bimini
is never cut off from the
rest of the country and the
world.

@ VOLLEYBALL ;
By BRENT STUBBS
Senior Sports Reporter

COLUMBUS Primary
made it look so easy in
repeating as boys champi-
ons in the New Providence
Primary Schools Sports
Association’s fourth annual
Tom ‘the Bird’ Grant Vol-
leyball Tournament.

However, the girls cham-
pions from Sir Gerald Cash
Primary School were not so
successful as they fell victim
‘to Claridge Primary. .

The week-long tourna-
ment came to a close on Fri-
day on the makeshift vol-
leyball courts at the Baillou
Hills Sporting Complex.

Skills

In what turned out to be a

true test of their champi-
onship skills, Columbus
swept Yellow Elder 15-3 and
15-6 in the best-of-three
boys’ final.
'. It was a victory that coach
Lawrence Sweeting indicat-
ed was sweeter than last
year, .

“T expected them to play
at that level and they did.
We had a better team this

year than last year,” Sweet-

ing noted. “We had a really
good team last year, but we
were stronger this year.” _

Columbus went through
the tournament undefeated,
thanks to the outstanding
performances from Alvin St.
Fleur, Deangelo Mortimer
and Deangelo King.

Yellow Elder, who had
their fans on their feet
cheering, suffered their only
losses to Columbus. But
coach Cardinal Moncur was
hoping to turn around the
round robin defeat.

“I thought the boys played
above their level. They over-
achieved because they were
not looking good in practice
at all,” Moncur pointed out.

“When they came out
here and they saw the com-
petition,.I guess it brought
the best in them.”

Moncur said in practice,
the boys were beaten by the



girls, but they surprised him
to get into the final. Yellow
Elder girls, on the other
hand, had to settle for
fourth place.

Despite the loss, Alcindor
McIntosh, Tearge Johnson
and Jonathan Meadows pro-
vided a spark.

In the girls’ final, Claridge

stunned Sir Gerald Cash
with a 15-5 and 15-8 sweep
to win the title. Claridge
rebounded losing their only
game in the tournament to
Sir Gerald Cash in the

.. round robin.

“This one was a sure
thing,” said a confident
coach Nikita Taylor, whose
Claridge team was assisted
by Latoya Bain. “As long as
we bumped the ball, I knew
nobody was going to beat
us.
“On the first day, Gerald
Cash beat us in a close
game, so to come back and
beat them was good
redemption. But all along, I

_ knew nobody could beat

by

us
- Alejandro Tavera made
sure that Claridge not only
won the game, but didn’t
have to go to a third and

’ deciding set when she went

to the service line and reeled
off the final five points to
seal the deal.

Coach

Sir Gerald Cash’s coach
Doris Ramsay said she’s still
trying to determine what
went wrong.

“My girls didn’t serve,”
she reflected. “My big
servers, who I depended on
and who I expected to carry
us through, didn’t serve, so
that hurt us tremendousiy.”

Ramsay said it was a dis-
appointing loss for Kyshan-
ti Beckford, who played on
the previous two champi-
onship teams and was hop-
ing to leave Sir Gerald Cash
with her third straight vic-
tory.

3eckford did all she could,
along with Andeshia Gan-
teaume, but it just wasn’t
enough to pull Sir Gerald
Cash over the hump.

And, in the boys’ conso-

TOM ‘the Bird’ Grant was
not only appreciative that his
name was used in the New
Providence Primary Schools
Sports Association’s volleyball
tournament for the fourth year.

He was also delighted to
have been able to assist in the
development of the many play-
ers who participated in the

? week-long event at the Baillou
i Hills Sporting complex.

“Tt was a honour, but I like
working with these kids
because if we don’t use them,
we will lose a whole generation
of volleyball players,” Grant
lamented.

Prior'to the tournament
being played, Grant said he vis-
ited some of the schools and
conducted clinics to prepare
them. He said he will be willing
to visit the others that he didn’t

_attend.

“This is the level that we
have to work with them
because, from this level, they.
will move to junior high and,
before you know it, they are in
senior high,” Grant stressed.

“At the senior high, they are’
doing their own thing in their
own style. So if we get them

now, we can help to turn them
around. They will only do what
the coaches tell them to do.

“TI like working at this level:
because I had a chance to talk:
to them before and after the
game and it turned out to be a
different ball game,” Grant
summed up.

He also expressed his grati-
tude to NPPSSA’s president
Nigel Ingraham for giving him
the opportunity to work with
their programme.

Ingraham said Grant is the
first of many legends in sports

’ who they hope to use to inspire
the young children.

“He was able to come in and
help us with the rules so that
we can better inform the play-
ers of what to do on the court,”
Ingraham stressed.

“As you can imagine, the
play-has really developed. He
has really fostered the game
from a low level at the begin-
ning to a much higher level this
year.”

In thanking Grant for his
assistance, along with his son,
Tom Jr., who officiated, Ingra-
ham said they hope that there
will names of legends used in
the other sports they will play
next year.

Among those sports are soft-
ball for girls, baseball for boys
and basketball and track and
field for both.

Columbus Primary repeated
as champions as they swept

i aside Yellow Elder in the boys’

i final. Claridge Primary
emerged as the third place fin-
ishers.

And, in the girls’ division,
Claridge Primary denied Sir
Gerald Cash a chance to three-
peat as they clinched the title.
Centreville were the third place
finishers.

e From the tournament, the
following players were named
to the Tom Grant’s All-tour-
nament team:

Girls - Kyshanti Beckford,
Tyesha Rolle, Randya Kemp,
Teshan Oliver and Kana
Joseph.

Boys - Lenny Oscar, Remel
Munroe, George Clarke, Alvin
St. Fleur, Dwight Coleby and
Tearge Johnson.

South Haven
chess national cha:

@ CHESS

THREE students from
South Haven Christian Acad-
emy prevailed in national
competition, receiving medals
in three divisions of the annu-
al Bahamas Chess Federation
National Championships.

These strategists had mar-
shalled their armies to battle
over six games during the
month of November, culmi-
nating in the final game on
Sunday, November 27th,
played in the ballroom of
Government House.

Morgan Worrell won: the

Under 14 division, John Pin- .

tard, took the Under 12 and
the only female in the tour-
nament, Mikala Allen, won
the Under 10 division.

The players are students at
South Haven Christian Acad-
emy, located on site at the
Bahamas Youth Camp facil-
ity on Gladstone Road.

President of the Chess
Federation Mr Warren Sey-
mour confirmed that the
three division victory by one
school was a first in the Chess
Federation’s history.

The school is in its fourth
year and, from the onset, its
players have been a force to
be reckoned with in the
Bahamas chess world. South
Haven won the coveted

Roland Rose Trophy in 2004,

accumulating more points
during the annual Scholastic

England



Championship than any oth-
er school.

Mr Albert Smith, principal
and administrator of the
school, saluted and com-
mended the students.

Frank Gibson maintained
his distinction as the most
outstanding chess player in
the Bahamas by winning the
Open Division.

Gibson, a six time Nation-
al Champion, easily won five
of six games. Mr Seymour
considered the fourth game,
drawn against the young and
promising Elton Joseph, as
the most outstanding game
of the championship.

TRIBUNE SPORIS

VAILUNVAT, VOULCIVIDLI| vu, cuvy, i mun ow



Wisdom
pays tribute
to Father
Marcian

m@ BASKETBALL

THE 21st Father Mar-
cian Peters Invitational
Basketball Classic will
be held from December
8-17 at the Kendal Isaacs
Gymnasium.

Minister of Youth,
Sports and Culture
Neville Wisdom said Fri-
day that the pre-Yule-
tide Classic, co-spon-
sored by the Bahamas
Basketball Federation
and the secondary and
primary schools sports
association, is designed
to honour the contribu-
tions of the late Father
Marcian.

Father Marcian,
according to Wisdom,
assisted in the whole-
some development of
Bahamian youth, utilis-
ing the medium of
organised basketball.

Said Wisdom: “Father
Marcian was affection- :
ately referred to as ‘the ;
Sporting Priest’, symbol-
ising the dedication and
passion which he invest-
ed during the 45 years of
his storied contributions
to the development of
the local sporting com-
munity.”

Objective

Wisdom further stated
that this year’s invita-
tional classic is a contin-
uation of his ministry’s
objective of responding
to the need for addition-
al opportunities of
organised sport and
recreation for primary
and junior level boys
teams and for greater
exposure of junior and
senior level female play-
ers.

“As has been the prac-
tice of the previous 21
years, senior boys teams
will not participate in
the invitational, as an
abundance of tourna-
ments are already in
place to assist in their
development.

“A continued feature
of this year’s invitational
will be an attempt to i
strengthen the compo- ;
nent for primary school
girls teams, aninitiative
introduced in 2004 to i
provide organised tour- :
naments for girls 12.
years and under,” he ;
‘Stressed.

“You will recall that
my ministry undertook a
similar initiative for pri-
mary school boys in
1998.”

In addition to the pri-
mary girls programme,
tournament competition
will occur in four other
general age group classi-
fications:

e Primary Boys Divi-
sion - players bornonor :
after December 31,1994.

e Junior Boys Division
- players born on or
after December 31, 1990.

e Junior Girls Division :
- players born on or i
after December 31, 1991.

e Senior Girls Division
- players born on or
after December 31, 1987.

Based on the min-
istry’s archives, partici-
pation in this develop-
mental programme has
steadily increased, peak-
ing in 1996 when 71
school teams participat-
ed.

It is projected that the
tournament field will
continue to trend
upward, largely as a
result of increased par-
ticipation of New Provi-
dence and Family Island
school teams.

The most prestigious
award offered at the’
classic will be the Father
Marcian Peters Champi-
onship Award, present-
ed each year since 1988
to the school which
accumulated the greatest
aggregate in the course
of the invitational.

This particular award
was designed to encour-
age schools to more
strengthen their basket-
ball programmes for pri-
mary, junior and senior
female players.

Ingraham speaks
at Freeport rally

& By KARAN MINNIS
Tribune Staff Reporter

“GRAND BAHAMA, I
have-come to tell you I am
back!” former prime minister
Hubert Ingraham announced to
a cheering crowd at his first ral-
ly in Freeport since being elect-
ed leader of the FNM.

The Free National Move-
ment, he said, had heard their
cries for help. The party was
ready to answer their call. He
asked Grand Bahama’s support
in helping “the FNM to become
the government again.”

“In the past you have been
good to me,” Mr Ingraham told
supporters at last night’s rally.
“And, you have been good to,
the FNM. You made our Marco
City victory possible in 1990
when the FNM David beat the
PLP Goliath. You showed the
way in 1992 and again in 1997
when the FNM brought deliv-
erance from 26 years of PLP
rule and ushered in nine years
of ‘Better under the FNM’.”

“Some of you parted compa-
ny with us in 2002,” he said.
“That happens in families some-
times. We don’t always see eye-
to-eye and we go our separate
ways for a while. But blood is
thicker than water; and we are
family; and Grand Bahama is
FNM country.”

According to Mr Ingraham,

. the people’s cry for help will be
answered.

“Your FNM sees the jobless-
ness, the neglect and the mis-
management which you are
being made to suffer under the
yolk of this tired, unfocused and
directionless PLP government,”
he said. “I have come to tell
you, that with your help, we will
roll them out next time, roll

them right out of office.”

“We understand that crafty
image makers made Perry
Christie and the PLP look like a
new, finely-tuned working
machine in 2002. But it was all
smoke and mirrors. That fresh
breeze of 2002 turned out to be
an ill-wind without even the
slightest hope for help.”

Mr Ingraham said that the
FNM has “the capacity, the
experience and the know-how
needed to fix Freeport, to fix
Grand Bahama, to fix our
Bahamaland.”

“God willing, following the
next general elections we will
come, once again, to your res-
cue and aid,” he said. “We will
make it better once again for
you in Grand Bahama and for
all in all of Bahamaland.”

Hitting out against the PLP
government, Mr Ingraham said
that “this government has no
idea of what to do.”

“Mr. Christie and his Cabi-
net Ministers now say that our
economy is restored following
the hurricanes; indeed, restored
faster than anyone expected. If
that is the case why are they
granting investment concessions
and tax concessions the likes of
which have never been consid-
ered or seen by any government
of the Bahamas at any time
since these islands of ours were
populated and Woodes Rogers
became the first Royal Gover-
nor in 1629?” he asked.

“The Prime Minister doesn’t
want me to report to the people.
But he won’t report. He talks
a lot. He says a lot of stuff. But
he does not reveal the full
details of the agreements he is

_ Bahamas death
penalty case
goes to the
Privy Council

IN A landmark case for the
Bahamas, the London-based
Privy Council will hear the case
of two convicted murderers who
are contesting the mandatory
death penalty.

A team from'the Attorney
General’s Office will assist
Queen’s Counsel John Ding-
ham, who represents the gov-
ernment of the Bahamas in the
case of convicts Forrester Bowe
and Trono Davis.

As the law stands in the
Bahamas, a person convicted of
murder is automatically sen-
tenced to death.

However, counsel for Howe
and Davis are challenging this
practice, contending that the
death penalty is not mandatory
and that the judge has discre-
tion whether or not the death
penalty should be imposed
upon a person convicted of
murder.

The Privy Council, the final
Court of Appeal for the
Bahamas, will, starting on
Wednesday, hear whether the
death penalty is mandatory or
whether the judge can impose
some other form of punishment

Search for
men lost
at sea is

suspended

THE search for the two men
lost at sea — one of them
believed to be the brother of
Cat Island MP Philip “Brave”
Davis — was suspended yester-
day.

Mervin Davis and Nathaniel
Larimore are believed to be
dead after disappearing off Cat
Island when their boat capsized.

Mr Philip Davis was off the
island yesterday and was unable
to be contacted on the ‘matter of
his missing brother.

Lt Commander Terry Johns,
US Coast Guard press liaison
officer, said that the Coast
Guard has suspended the search
for the two men after an all-day
search on Thursday with an
OPBAT 860 helicopter.

“The men were last seen
clinging to the boat and unfor-
tunately we were not informed
until a day after they went miss-
ing. By the time we arrived on
scene the boat washed on shore.
Because these men had no life
jackets or equipment it is
unlikely for them to tread water
for this amount of time,” Lt
Com Johns said.

The Royal Bahamas Defence
Force, which has the overall
responsibility for rescue mis-
sions in that region, also sus-
pended their search yesterday.

A 28-YEAR-OLD Soldier
Road man was arraigned in Mag- :
istrate’s Court yesterday for pos-
session of an unlicensed rifle and
several live rounds of ammunition.

It was alleged that on Wednes-
day, November 30, Marklyn Smith
was found with a MAK-90 Sporter
Norinco 7.62mm rifle (a semi-auto-
matic version of the AK 47 assault
rifle) without being the holder of
the prescribed licence for the
gun.

A second count alleged that he
was found in possession of 30 live
rounds of 7.62mm ammunition.

It was alleged that the rifle and
ammunition were found in Smith’s
backyard by police who were exe-
cuting a search warrant on his
home on Wednesday.

Smith, who denied the charges,
was granted $10,000 bail.

He was represented by lawyer
Godfrey “Pro” Pinder.

The matter was heard before
Magistrate Guillemena Archer and
was adjourned to March 21, 2006.

@ A 30-YEAR-OLD Haitian
man of Bellot Road was arraigned
in Magistrate’s Court yesterday
charged with possession. of a forged
document.

It was alleged that on Thursday,
December 1, Lubin Escarment was
found in possession of a forged
Bahamian certificate of identity
bearing the name Lubin Escar-
ment.

Escarment denied that he knew
the document was falsified.

Magistrate Archer postponed
the question of bail until Monday
and remanded Escarment into
police custody.

In brief Disabled man

escapes injury
y inches

m@ By KARAN MINNIS
Tribune Staff Reporter

A DISABLED man narrowly escaped injury, and
possibly death, yesterday when a load of water pipes fell
off a truck on Shirley Street.

The pipes crashed into the road and onto the sidewalk
where he was using his mobile chair. He escaped injury
by inches.

The Pinder’s Customs Brokerage (PCB) delivery
truck had just passed The Tribune’s office when the inci-
dent happened.

The pipes got caught in an overhead power line. As
a result, about-15 pipes came crashing to the ground,
narrowly missing disabled Stanley Bethel, 39. He
escaped injury.

The truck, which had been delivering pipes to
Bahamas Hot Mix at the Airport Industrial Park, was
not.damaged in the accident.

Mr Bethel told The Tribune: “The pipes hit the back
of my chair, and my hands hit the iron bars over there,
but other than my chair being twisted, I think am okay.”

Mr Bethel, of South Beach, was heading to Princess
Margaret Hospital for a check-up after visiting his
father at Doctors Hospital when the incident occurred.

“J was on my way to get my (leg) cast checked,” he

said. “As soon as I passed that lamp-pole right there all.

I heard was splat and I felt myself being pushed a bit.”

Mr Bethel-said this was his second near-death expe-
rience for the year as he was also involved in a traffic
accident.

In brief

Man in court charged with one to kidnap his children, escape to Bahamas

AN AMERICAN man charged with
attempting to kidnap his children and escape
to the Bahamas has appeared ina US court.

It was alleged that if John Kindt Jr had
been successful, he would have permanent-
ly prevented his ex-wife from seeing her
children.

According to a report appearing on the
Ausbury Park press website yesterday,
Kindt has admitted taking his children but
said he didn’t intend to permanently flee
with them.

He said he wanted to disappear and
establish residency in another jurisdiction

* boy and 5-year-old

enforce shared custody of the children with
his ex-wile Anne O°Connor.

The 47-year-old father was described as a
“demanding perfectionist” wh » was upset by
a December 2000 court order granting him
limited time with his children and forcing
him to pay his ex-wife $ £00,000.

It is alleged that he therefore devised a
plan with his new wife Stacey and nephew
Matthew Aronson to take the children on
December 29, 2000, while they visited the
Kindts’ home for the holidays.

The mother reported the then 6-year-old
girl missing the following

arrested by the US Coast Guard on January
22, 2001.

Their boat had broke down off the coast
of North Carolina and they had been forced
to call for help.

It was alleged that their plan included
securing passports and medical records;
withdrawing money, sending explanation
letters to the Kindts’ parents, leaving a mini-
van at the airport when they took a train,
and buying a $40,000 boat under a fake
name.

The vessel was allegedly stocked with
$1,600 worth of merchandise, a chart of the

According to the Ausbury Park. press,
Kindt also used two books that outlined
how “to disappear or become invisible”.

Assistant Prosecutor Barry Serebnick
told the jury during his summation at
Kindt’s kidnapping trial hearing that his
dislike for his ex-wife “exceeded his love
for his children”.

“He didn’t want to lose his wife and he
didn’t want to lose his kids. So, he saw that

and I’m taking the kids on my terms’, ” Mr
Serebnick said.

FREEPORT - Natario Fran-
cis, 18, was charged with the mur-
der of 34-year-old Tanya Penny
Pinder in Freeport Magistrate's
Court on Friday.

Francis, of Beginning Drive,
South Bahamia, appeared in
Court Three before Magistrate
Helen Jones.

It is alleged that on November
25, the accused, being concerned
with others while at Freeport,
Grand Bahama, caused the death
of Ms Pinder.

The body of Ms Pinder, an
office clerk, was found with a gun-
shot wound to the head last Fri-
day at the offices of the Cool
Breeze Apartments on Hudson
Avenue.

Her death is classified as the
14th homicide for the year in
Grand Bahama.

Francis, who was not repre-
sented by legal counsel at his
arraignment, was not required to
enter a plea to the charge.

Bail was denied and the matter
was adjourned to February 28,
2005 for a preliminary inquiry.

‘Two persons - 22-year-old Ray-
mond Darling and a L7-year-old

juvenile - have also been charged

with Ms Pinder’s murder, as well

cas other related charges, including

firearm and ammunition charges.

Their cases were adjourned to
February 26, 2005.

In other court news. Brian
Davis, 18. was charged with bur-
glary and stealing more than
$14,000 worth of items from a
house on Bahama Reef Boule-
vard.

It is alleged that sometime
between July 31 and August 1,
Davis, being concerned avith oth-
ers, unlawfully entered
the home of Almondo Talbot at
apartment LO7, Cove House.

He accused of stealing a com-
puter, a cell phone, a play station
and jewelry, together valued
$14,500.

Carlson Shurland represented
Davis, who was not required to
enter a plea to the charges.

Magistrate Jones told Davis
that both matters would be dealt
with together at a preliminary
inquiry.

Mr Shurland suggested several
reasons why the court should
grant his client bail. He explained
that Davis: was gainfully
employed as an apprentice at the
Grand Bahama Shipyard and had
no prior charges.

“T don’t think he will abscond
and it would serve no good to
incareerate him at this time as a
person is presumed innocent, and
I ask the court to give him the
benefit of the doubt,” he said.

Speaking on his own behalf,

Davis told Magistrate Jones that
he had been forced to assume the
role of the man in his household,
because he had grown up with-
out a father. He said that he has
been working since he was 13-
years-old to support his mother
and sister.

Magistrate Jones granted Davis
$5,000 bail with one surety and
adjourned to matter to March 14,
2006.

She warned Davis, who lives
at apartment 109, Cove House,
that if he interfered with Mr Tal-
bot, his bail would be revoked.

Concern over
the argument
on firearms

EDITOR, The Tribune.

BEFORE the argument to
allow shopkeepers, business
people to be armed with fire
arms goes too much further
hopefully the Minister of
National Security and the
Commissioner of Police will
denounce the sense of this
proposal.

Attorney Branville McCart-
ney, Chairman of the Safety
Committee of the Chamber
of Commerce is 100 per cent
wrong and he should be
proposing the obvious oppo-
site — disarm the criminal ele-
ment; stop the smuggling of
fire arms and reinforce the
penalties for the illegal pos-
session of an unlicensed fire-
arm and educate the public as
to how you avoid being
robbed?

Having years of practical

experience in how to handle
large amounts of cash I sug-
gest the police or others who
are so qualified in safety and
security measures will offer
seminars and their services as
to the simple how-to of reduc-
ing your liability and danger of
being robbed.

Just in passing — I find it
most interesting that the
Chamber of Commerce opens
its membership and executive
to a member of the legal pro-
fession. When did the
Bahamas Bar Association
open its membership to a
member of the public?

Attorney McCartney in my
opinion you are totally wrong
— God forbid we follow your

suggestion as the public will
be in greater danger as, sir,
isn’t it obvious that the crimi-
nal element’s supply will out
gun you and the shopkeepers
and take no prisoners and kill,
maim on sight to achieve the
success of their criminal
intent?

We need to remove fire.
arms — criminals carrying-out
crimes with a fire-arm should
face longer prison sentences,
add five-years to the sentence
— strengthen the laws for.the
possession of an unlicensed
fire-arm and campaign strong-
ly to educate the business per-
son and citizen how to avoid
robberies.

Views on Paul Adderley

THE EDITOR, The Tribune.

Everybody knows how Mr. Adderley feels

THANKS for reminding the public about
the scandalous attack by Paul Adderley on the
agreement between the FNM Government and
Sol Kerzner for the development of Paradise
Island. Mr. Adderley said he was speaking for
the leadership of the PLP at the time. Now
they have all changed their tune and are giving
away Bahamian land in order to attract
investors!

But you should never be surprised at Mr.
Adderley. Remember how right up to the 1972
election he was so adamantly opposed to the
PLP and right after. the election he abandoned
his NDP and joined up with the PLP? He was
just in time to be included in the delegation for
the independence constitution conference in
London! ~

about representing the Queen and how
opposed he says he is to accepHie Hououts
from Her Majesty.

He didn't even want to give gualstied
Bahamian lawyers like Sir Cecil Wallace
Whitfield their hard-earned QCs Queene
Counsel).

Now just look at him. Presiding at Gow
ernment House as the Representative of Her
Majesty Queen Elizabeth II! He will see noth-
ing wrong with now going to Buckingham
Palace and have the Queen make him Sir Paut.

Cuban doctors ‘a good move’

. EDITOR, The Tribune.

MY VIEWS on the govern-
ment bringing Cuban doctors
here are that I believe that is a
very good move because many
of the medical professionals in
this country have no respect for
the Bahamian public — that is as
far as my experience goes with

the medical system in this coun- -

try.
Are the medical doctors more
concerned about the money they
receive rather than the care of
the. patient?
To me that is the wrong atti-

be held December 5 to 9 at
the Rhode Island National
Guard Headquarters in
Cranton, Rhode Island.
The visit is expected to
familiarise key personnel
and members of the NLO
in Nassau with the opera-
tions of the National
Guard, state and local
police agencies, and Rhode

Island’s Emergency Opera-

tions Centre (EOC).

‘It is anticipated that a
three to five-year plan will
be drafted for future SPP
events and projects in
which Rhode Island can
support the Bahamas in its
disaster management

with CMA canal /

@ By KARAN MINNIS
Tribune Staff Reporter

A BAHAMIAN student is the first person in
44 years to pass the first two parts of the Certified
Management, Accounting (CMA) examination
as an undergraduate.

As a result, University of South Carolina Aiken
senior Steffon Cooper is now being view as a
role model among his peers.

Speaking to The Tribune yesterday, Mr Coop-
er said that since passing the initial phases of
the exam, he has received e-mails from persons
stating that his efforts have encouraged them to
push forward with their ambitions.

The four-part CMA exam aims to cover a
broad range of topics including economics, busi-
ness finance, situational ethics and decision mak-
ing.

Ethics

The exam places a great deal of emphasis on
ethics and is designed to test decision-making
skills and critical thinking.

According to Mr Cooper, it is “an invaluable
credential for professional advancement and for
broadening professional skills and perspective”.

Mr Cooper said he does not want his “whole:

experience to go unnoticed,” and would like for
his achievement to encourage others to excel as
well.

“I just came home to hopefully get other stu-
dents to see that they can excel and can do some-
thing good,” he said. “Its a great investment for

people, especially young students, in the busi-
ness world. This is why I want more people local-
ly to take an interest in it because it is a great
asset for young adults in the business world,”
Mr Cooper said.

He is now attempting to spread information
about the exam through the local media, and
hopes to get a spot on ZNS.

Mr Cooper, who graduated from Nassau Chris-
tian Academy in 2001, was awarded a full schol-
arship from USCA and has been a full time stu-
dent since January 2002.

Expected to graduate this December with a
bachelors degree in business administration, Mr
Cooper is determined to raise awareness about

WHY YOU VEX?

@ By PAUL G TURNQUEST
Tribune Staff Reporter

WHY YOU VEX?

“I vex with the fact that my
road hasn’t been paved now for
over two years. [’ll give the gov-
ernment the benefit of the
doubt that the road has never
been paved, and they might
want to wait until all the infra-
structure is in place, but two
years? When it rains water set-

‘tles and’ when’ you drive through
‘you ‘constantly dig ‘out’séctions

of the dirt'road. What’s the
worst part is that when it rains
now, mosquitoes will kill you.”

Danottage Resident

“T vex that they fix that traffic
light before KFC on West Bay
Street. Now the traffic is backed
up all the way by the Hilton
now. And why are these police
standing on these boxes direct-
ing traffic — just building up
traffic.”

Brian Major, Cable Beach

“I vex cause Bahamians like
new roads but when the gov-
ernment are repairing the roads
they are complaining about the
traffic that causes. People can’t
even wait until the road is fixed,
they'll be right there blowing
their horn, making a bunch of
noise complaining. Why can’t
we be satisfied?”

Karen Poitier, Blair.

“I vex with the government
workers who complain about
overtime pay and it’s these
same workers who leave direct-
ly at 5 o’clock. They don’t even
work overtime but they coim-
plain that they aren’t getting
their pay. Some people don’t
even have that open of making
overtime.”

Underpaid private worker

WHY YOU HAPPY?

“I’m happy because the
Christmas season is finally here!
They have the lights out on Bay
Street and you can just feel the
sensation in the air. If only it
could snow, then everything
would be perfect.”

Hurricane
relief efforts

BAHAMAS Faith Min-
istries International (BFMI)
joined the list of local and
international organisations
that have contributed to the
Hurricane Wilma relief
efforts by donating more
than $11,000 in money and
supplies.

Pastor Richard Pinder said
the donation is the first of
several initiatives BFMI is
planning to assist the hurri-
cane victims in the Northern
Bahamas.

“We feel their pain, we
feel the loss of those families
who have lost so much, who
have suffered so much in
Grand Bahama and Abaco as
_ aresult of Hurricane
Wilma,” said Pastor Pinder.

“This first initiative i
involves food, clothing, water —
and cash, and came together
as a result of our members
and our business persons in
the fellowship, who saw the
need to assist their brothers
and sisters during their time
of need,” he said.

Days GONE By



WITH the retirement of
Dame Ivy Dumont this week,
DAYS GONE BY looks back
at the early career of the first
three Bahamian Governors
General, starting from the last
British Governor of the
Bahamas Sir John Paul who
took up his appointment in
April 1972 and retired on
August 1 1973 when Sir Milo
Butler, the country’s first
Bahamian Governor General
was sworn in.

In brief.

Christmas
craft show

A WIDE range of native
decorative options for this
festive season are being
offered at the 11th annual
Bahamian Christmas Craft
Show today at the Wyndham
Nassau Resort.

‘Held from 11am to 7pm,
the event is being presented
by the Ministry of Tourism
and the Bahamas Hotel
Association, and will feature

-65 craft booths, a fashion
show, a special culinary cor-
ner as well as a visit from
Santa Claus.

‘In addition to entertaining
the show’s visitors, the event
is further geared towards
creating “linkages in tourism
and other sectors, (increas-
ing) the level of employ-
ment, while also creating a
chain of revenue and cater-
ing to visitors and Bahami-
ans alike,” the show’s organ-
isérs said.

The Ministry of Tourism
said the event has grown
“tremendously” and the
quality of the products has
“greatly improved”. -

» Bahamians are being
urged to enter into this
lucrative market and organ-
isérs hope that eventually,
évery souvenir shop will sup-
ply authentically Bahamian
hand crafted items.

@ RESIDENTS of South Andros had an opportunity to voice a number of concerns on Thurs-
day when Housing Minister Shane Gibson (second left) visited to hand out building supplies to
families whose homes were damaged by Hurricane Wilma.

@ By TIFFANY GRANT
Tribune Staff Reporter

CONGO TOWN - South
Andros communities are crying
out to government to establish a
water supply in the area.

Concerned South Androsians
told The Tribune on Thursday
that all the communities from
south of the Bluff to Mars Bay
are desperately in need of run-
ning water. .

Residents said they are forced
to depend on rain water tanks
with electrical water pumps, which
can. be very.costly to install.

Cost

Barbara McKinney of Kemp's

Bay said that in some instances, .

installation can cost thousands of
dollars.

She explained that materials for
a water tank can cost up to $1,500

_and a gutter system another $500.

She. added that a holding tank

(BIS photo by Gladstone Thurston)

and electric water pump each cost

$300. Labour alone, she said, can
add up to $2,500.

Ms McKinney said that in times
of drought, she used to be able to
get water from a local school's
pump, but access to this supply
has been discontinued.

Therefore, Ms McKinney said,
she has resorted to travelling to
her mother’s home to stock up on
water.

"It is hard to live in your house.
It is hard to have a modern house
with everything set-up and then
you have to drag water in by con-
tainers and have them there
stored-up. I moved in my house
about 14 years ago, and I have
been waiting for water ever
since," she said.

Rowena Sands of Pleasant Bay .

also struggles because of a lack of
running water.

"I only have a well and the
water is hard. I have to change
fixtures in my bathroom twice a
year, because salt water messes





Residents call for water
supply in South Andros

up everything.

“If the government can send
water here I'll be happy, because
you even can't catch a good bath,"
she said

Chief councillor of South
Andros Zebedee Rolle told The
Tribune that when Prime Minister
Perry Christie and Minister of
Works Bradley Roberts toured
the island in October, they. were
informed of the water plight of
South Andros.

"IT pointed out to Minister
Roberts the need for potable
water at the Deep Creek Primary
School. They expressed their con-
cern and said they will solve the
problem," said Mr Rolle.

Install

The Tribune contacted Mr
Roberts on the matter. He said
the government intends to install
a reverse osmosis plant to accom-
modate the area. :

“Their full and only explana-
tion for the loss of jobs in Grand
Bahama is that we had two hur-
ricanes last year. And then, we
had another hurricane, Wilma,
this year, and ‘lo and behold’ it
seems this one caught them just
as ‘off guard’ as Frances and
Jeanne did last year,” he said.

“No one ever said running a
government was easy,” said Mr
Ingraham. “It takes work, hard
work, 24/7. No, it ain’t all glam-

leadership. Yes, leadership.
That is what this Government
lacks — leadership.”

“We delivered The Bahamas
from the corrupt, scandal-rid-
den, and compromised pre-1992
PLP government and we are

not now prepared to permit this -

PLP government to take us
down that same old road a sec-
ond time,” said Mr Ingraham.
“Our investment policy facil-
itated the inflow of more than

$4 billion in direct foreign

investment during our two

“Under the FNM unemploy-
ment in Grand Bahama fell
from 16.4 per cent in 1992 to

“In 1992, 3,610 persons were
unemployed in Grand Bahama;
by 2002 the number of unem-
ployed had dropped to 1,610 -
less than half.

“In just the first three years
in office, the FNM created
12,740 new jobs across the coun-

“In the first three years in

“In their first three years in
office, they have created 420
jobs in Freeport.

“In our first three years in

office we created 1,560 jobs in

Grand Bahama, five times as
many as the PLP.

“Under the PLP, Grand
Bahama’s unemployment rose
from 6.4 per cent in 2002 to 9.3
per cent in 2004;. that’s last
year’s number. That’s before
the Royal Oasis closed putting
some 1,500 persons out of work.

.“In the first three years of
PLP government beginning in
2002 the number of unem-
ployed souls in Grand Bahama
has risen to, in my estimation, at
least 5,000.

“And, you know the kind of
ripple effect of that on other
businesses and hence, jobs!

“In three and a half years
they’ve only managed to facili-
tate or create less than half the
economic activity fostered by
the FNM during our first three
years in office. I tell you they
are sitting down on the job and
they’re getting paid on slack.
That’s not right,” he remarked.

rraham speaks at —

“By not creating enough jobs
the PLP has lost the backing of
the people to whom they
promised hope and help.

“The FNM success between
1992 and 2002 was fuelled by
foreign and local investment
and dedicated, responsible and
accountable government: That’s
what made our success possi-
ble,” he reminded them.

“No, the FNM has no argu-
ment with any investor. We
have arguments with the appli-
cation of different rules for dif-
ferent people under the PLP.
And we have an argument with
secret agreements,” he said.

“T say that the failure of this
Government to take advantage
of developments which took
place here in Grand Bahama
between 1992 and 2002 is
astounding. Their attempt to
excuse their non-performance
in Grand Bahama is an insult
to the good people of Grand
Bahama,” Mr Ingraham told
the enthusiastic crowd that filled

lot.

Cheryl Bethell, deputy director of public prosecutions, and
senior counselors Vernal Collie and Stephanie Pintard will travel
to London on behalf of the government. ;

This case comes at a time when an increasing number of countries
are taking the stance that the death penalty is irreconcilable with

human rights awareness.

The debate over the death sentence as the ultimate form of — :

punishment gained new momentum this week as the United States
executed its 1,000th convict since the Supreme Court reinstated the

death penalty in 1976.

A Gallup poll last month showed that while a clear majority —
64 per cent — of Americans still favoured the death penalty, the
support for the capital punishment is at the lowest level in 27 years
and down from a high of 80 per cent in 1994.

@ VOLLEYBALL ;
By BRENT STUBBS
Senior Sports Reporter

COLUMBUS Primary
made it look so easy in
repeating as boys champi-
ons in the New Providence
Primary Schools Sports
Association’s fourth annual
Tom ‘the Bird’ Grant Vol-
leyball Tournament.

However, the girls cham-
pions from Sir Gerald Cash
Primary School were not so
successful as they fell victim
‘to Claridge Primary. .

The week-long tourna-
ment came to a close on Fri-
day on the makeshift vol-
leyball courts at the Baillou
Hills Sporting Complex.

Skills

In what turned out to be a

true test of their champi-
onship skills, Columbus
swept Yellow Elder 15-3 and
15-6 in the best-of-three
boys’ final.
'. It was a victory that coach
Lawrence Sweeting indicat-
ed was sweeter than last
year, .

“T expected them to play
at that level and they did.
We had a better team this

year than last year,” Sweet-

ing noted. “We had a really
good team last year, but we
were stronger this year.” _

Columbus went through
the tournament undefeated,
thanks to the outstanding
performances from Alvin St.
Fleur, Deangelo Mortimer
and Deangelo King.

Yellow Elder, who had
their fans on their feet
cheering, suffered their only
losses to Columbus. But
coach Cardinal Moncur was
hoping to turn around the
round robin defeat.

“I thought the boys played
above their level. They over-
achieved because they were
not looking good in practice
at all,” Moncur pointed out.

“When they came out
here and they saw the com-
petition,.I guess it brought
the best in them.”

Moncur said in practice,
the boys were beaten by the



girls, but they surprised him
to get into the final. Yellow
Elder girls, on the other
hand, had to settle for
fourth place.

Despite the loss, Alcindor
McIntosh, Tearge Johnson
and Jonathan Meadows pro-
vided a spark.

In the girls’ final, Claridge

stunned Sir Gerald Cash
with a 15-5 and 15-8 sweep
to win the title. Claridge
rebounded losing their only
game in the tournament to
Sir Gerald Cash in the

.. round robin.

“This one was a sure
thing,” said a confident
coach Nikita Taylor, whose
Claridge team was assisted
by Latoya Bain. “As long as
we bumped the ball, I knew
nobody was going to beat
us.
“On the first day, Gerald
Cash beat us in a close
game, so to come back and
beat them was good
redemption. But all along, I

_ knew nobody could beat

by

us
- Alejandro Tavera made
sure that Claridge not only
won the game, but didn’t
have to go to a third and

’ deciding set when she went

to the service line and reeled
off the final five points to
seal the deal.

Coach

Sir Gerald Cash’s coach
Doris Ramsay said she’s still
trying to determine what
went wrong.

“My girls didn’t serve,”
she reflected. “My big
servers, who I depended on
and who I expected to carry
us through, didn’t serve, so
that hurt us tremendousiy.”

Ramsay said it was a dis-
appointing loss for Kyshan-
ti Beckford, who played on
the previous two champi-
onship teams and was hop-
ing to leave Sir Gerald Cash
with her third straight vic-
tory.

3eckford did all she could,
along with Andeshia Gan-
teaume, but it just wasn’t
enough to pull Sir Gerald
Cash over the hump.

TOM ‘the Bird’ Grant was
not only appreciative that his
name was used in the New
Providence Primary Schools
Sports Association’s volleyball
tournament for the fourth year.

He was also delighted to
have been able to assist in the
development of the many play-
ers who participated in the

? week-long event at the Baillou
i Hills Sporting complex.

“Tt was a honour, but I like
working with these kids
because if we don’t use them,
we will lose a whole generation
of volleyball players,” Grant
lamented.

Prior'to the tournament
being played, Grant said he vis-
ited some of the schools and
conducted clinics to prepare
them. He said he will be willing
to visit the others that he didn’t

_attend.

“This is the level that we
have to work with them
because, from this level, they.
will move to junior high and,
before you know it, they are in
senior high,” Grant stressed.

“At the senior high, they are’
doing their own thing in their
own style. So if we get them

now, we can help to turn them
around. They will only do what
the coaches tell them to do.

“TI like working at this level:
because I had a chance to talk:
to them before and after the
game and it turned out to be a
different ball game,” Grant
summed up.

He also expressed his grati-
tude to NPPSSA’s president
Nigel Ingraham for giving him
the opportunity to work with
their programme.

Ingraham said Grant is the
first of many legends in sports

’ who they hope to use to inspire
the young children.

“He was able to come in and
help us with the rules so that
we can better inform the play-
ers of what to do on the court,”
Ingraham stressed.

“As you can imagine, the
play-has really developed. He
has really fostered the game
from a low level at the begin-
ning to a much higher level this
year.”

In thanking Grant for his
assistance, along with his son,
Tom Jr., who officiated, Ingra-
ham said they hope that there
will names of legends used in
the other sports they will play
next year.

Among those sports are soft-
ball for girls, baseball for boys
and basketball and track and
field for both.

Columbus Primary repeated
as champions as they swept

i aside Yellow Elder in the boys’

i final. Claridge Primary
emerged as the third place fin-
ishers.

And, in the girls’ division,
Claridge Primary denied Sir
Gerald Cash a chance to three-
peat as they clinched the title.
Centreville were the third place
finishers.

e From the tournament, the
following players were named
to the Tom Grant’s All-tour-
nament team:

Girls - Kyshanti Beckford,
Tyesha Rolle, Randya Kemp,
Teshan Oliver and Kana
Joseph.

Boys - Lenny Oscar, Remel
Munroe, George Clarke, Alvin
St. Fleur, Dwight Coleby and
Tearge Johnson.

South Haven
chess national cha:

@ CHESS

THREE students from
South Haven Christian Acad-
emy prevailed in national
competition, receiving medals
in three divisions of the annu-
al Bahamas Chess Federation
National Championships.

These strategists had mar-
shalled their armies to battle
over six games during the
month of November, culmi-
nating in the final game on
Sunday, November 27th,
played in the ballroom of
Government House.

Morgan Worrell won: the

Under 14 division, John Pin- .

tard, took the Under 12 and
the only female in the tour-
nament, Mikala Allen, won
the Under 10 division.

The players are students at
South Haven Christian Acad-
emy, located on site at the
Bahamas Youth Camp facil-
ity on Gladstone Road.

President of the Chess
Federation Mr Warren Sey-
mour confirmed that the
three division victory by one
school was a first in the Chess
Federation’s history.

The school is in its fourth
year and, from the onset, its
players have been a force to
be reckoned with in the
Bahamas chess world. South
Haven won the coveted

Roland Rose Trophy in 2004,

accumulating more points
during the annual Scholastic

England



Championship than any oth-
er school.

Mr Albert Smith, principal
and administrator of the
school, saluted and com-
mended the students.

Frank Gibson maintained
his distinction as the most
outstanding chess player in
the Bahamas by winning the
Open Division.

Gibson, a six time Nation-
al Champion, easily won five
of six games. Mr Seymour
considered the fourth game,
drawn against the young and
promising Elton Joseph, as
the most outstanding game
of the championship.

TRIBUNE SPORIS

VAILUNVAT, VOULCIVIDLI| vu, cuvy, i mun ow



Wisdom
pays tribute
to Father
Marcian

m@ BASKETBALL

THE 21st Father Mar-
cian Peters Invitational
Basketball Classic will
be held from December
8-17 at the Kendal Isaacs
Gymnasium.

Minister of Youth,
Sports and Culture
Neville Wisdom said Fri-
day that the pre-Yule-
tide Classic, co-spon-
sored by the Bahamas
Basketball Federation
and the secondary and
primary schools sports
association, is designed
to honour the contribu-
tions of the late Father
Marcian.

Father Marcian,
according to Wisdom,
assisted in the whole-
some development of
Bahamian youth, utilis-
ing the medium of
organised basketball.

Said Wisdom: “Father
Marcian was affection- :
ately referred to as ‘the ;
Sporting Priest’, symbol-
ising the dedication and
passion which he invest-
ed during the 45 years of
his storied contributions
to the development of
the local sporting com-
munity.”

Objective

Wisdom further stated
that this year’s invita-
tional classic is a contin-
uation of his ministry’s
objective of responding
to the need for addition-
al opportunities of
organised sport and
recreation for primary
and junior level boys
teams and for greater
exposure of junior and
senior level female play-
ers.

“As has been the prac-
tice of the previous 21
years, senior boys teams
will not participate in
the invitational, as an
abundance of tourna-
ments are already in
place to assist in their
development.

“A continued feature
of this year’s invitational
will be an attempt to i
strengthen the compo- ;
nent for primary school
girls teams, aninitiative
introduced in 2004 to i
provide organised tour- :
naments for girls 12.
years and under,” he ;
‘Stressed.

“You will recall that
my ministry undertook a
similar initiative for pri-
mary school boys in
1998.”

In addition to the pri-
mary girls programme,
tournament competition
will occur in four other
general age group classi-
fications:

e Primary Boys Divi-
sion - players bornonor :
after December 31,1994.

e Junior Boys Division
- players born on or
after December 31, 1990.

e Junior Girls Division :
- players born on or i
after December 31, 1991.

e Senior Girls Division
- players born on or
after December 31, 1987.

Based on the min-
istry’s archives, partici-
pation in this develop-
mental programme has
steadily increased, peak-
ing in 1996 when 71
school teams participat-
ed.

It is projected that the
tournament field will
continue to trend
upward, largely as a
result of increased par-
ticipation of New Provi-
dence and Family Island
school teams.

The most prestigious
award offered at the’
classic will be the Father
Marcian Peters Champi-
onship Award, present-
ed each year since 1988
to the school which
accumulated the greatest
aggregate in the course
of the invitational.

This particular award
was designed to encour-
age schools to more
strengthen their basket-
ball programmes for pri-
mary, junior and senior
female players.
