CI Gibson staff /
walk out after

alleged

# By PAUL TURNQUEST
Tribune Staff Reporter

TEACHERS at C I Gibson
Senior High School staged a sit-
out yesterday after a student
allegedly beat up a teacher.

According to union officials,
teachers have given the admin-
istration until Wednesday of
next week to implement a num-
ber of security initiatives - or
face further sit-outs and indus-
trial action.

This announcement comes
following a report on Thursday
that a music teacher at the
school was assaulted by a grade
11 male student.

Speaking to The Tribune,
Bahamas Union of Teachers
(BUT) secretary-general Belin-
da Wilson confirmed that the
teachers staged a sit-out yester-
day as a result of the attack.

“The teachers decided to sit
in today with the permission of
the union, and come up with
some sort of safety plan that is
workable for the entire school.
They will present it to the prin-
cipal at 3pm, and the union’s
area vice-president Donathon
Cox is there helping them to
formulate that plan,” she said.

If the short-term measures of
this strategy are not imple-
mented by Wednesday, Mrs
Wilson reported that the teach-
ers “will take further action”.

“They will put together some
short-term and long-term plans,
and give the principal 72 hours,
or until next week Wednesday,
to have the short-term plans

In Thursday’s attack, the
teacher in question had report-
edly stumbled upon a male and
female student in an “intimate”
sexual setting, and attempted
to intervene.

It is not absolutely clear how
the teacher was assaulted by the
male student, but it is-known
that his shirt was torn in two
places during the scuffle.

Mr Cox said the new initia-
tives teachers are hoping to
implement would ensure the
safety of everyone at C I Gib-
son.

' “Some of the ideas are to
have all visitors stop at the secu-
rity and sign in, and have licence

‘plates of vehicles taken as too .

many persons are just visiting
the school.

“All students must have iden-
tification badges by February 6
- which should be worn at all
times because it is a part of the
school uniform,” he said.

Mr Cox also reported that
they are looking for consistent
punishment from the adminis-
tration for students who do not
adhere to the rules and =e
tions of the school.

“Like if a student cusses a
teacher out, they don’t want any
verbal reprimand saying ‘Don’t
do it again’. We must be con-
sistent with the reprimand. If it
warrants a suspension or expul-
sion we want these things imple-
mented consistently,” he said.

Prison boss is

urged to resign Jink accused
after break-out

@ By RUPERT MISSICK Jr
Chief Reporter

PRISON boss Dr Elliston
Rahming was advised to quit
yesterday by a former inmate
who warned him he would
always have problems while he
is in the job.

The former prisoner said Dr
Rahming should allow those
“who know that jail to run that
jail” following this week’s
deadly escape bid by four crim-
inals.

Stephen Seymour, who
served six and a half years at

Fox Hill Prison on an armed ”

robbery charge, made the com-
ment during Love 97’s Issues
of the Day, where he appeared
alongside former prison super-
intendent Edwin Culmer.

“There is an element in that
fraternity who will not work
with you and it is evident that
they are not working with you.

“See what you can do to get
out of that position and let
those guys who know that jail
run that jail because as long as
you are there you are going to
have problems.

“The blood that is going to

fall in that prison, and it’s going
to‘happen shortly, is going to
fall on the heads of these lead-
ers,” he said.

Mr Seymour said that,
because it was seen as a politi-
cal appointment, Dr Rahming’s
stint as prison superintendent
will not be supportive.

“For some reason the entire
public disagrees with your
appointment. I think it was a

political favour done for you

by the prime minister.

“The prisons system is a fra-
ternity of men who take on a
career. Your appointment is
the same (former Prime Minis-
ter Hubert) Ingraham made
with (former superintendent of
prisons) Philip Turner,” Mr
Seymour said.

However, Dr Rahming, who
joined the show later in its
broadcast, said he was not
offered any favours by the gov-
ernment by being made prison
superintendent and that he was
not earning a cent more than
he earned at the office of the
prime minister. In fact, it was a
sacrifice for him to be there.

DNA experts

to murder

B@ By FELICITY INGRAHAM
Tribune Staff Reporter

DNA experts have linked
Ricardo Miller, also known as
Tamar Lee, to the murder of
Mario Miller through tested
blood samples collected from
the victim's vehicle.

Julie Schurman, a DNA ana-
lyst attached to Broward Coun-
ty Crime Lab at the time the
murder occurred in 2002, said
she tested 10 items she
received from the forensics lab
in Nassau.

The first two items were
"known samples" from the vic-
tim Mario Miller, and one of
the defendant's, called "Tamar
Lee" by the analyst.

Also on trial for the murder
of Cabinet Minister Leslie
Miller's son is Ryan Miller,
brother of Ricardo Miller.

The third item Ms Schurman
received was a portion of tissue
collected from the victim's 1997
Infiniti Jeep. The fourth sample
was taken from the steering
wheel, and the fifth from the
armrest near the driver's seat.

Ms Schurman said the sixth

Nassau and Bahama Islands’ Leading Newspape1

and seventh items were nail
clippings from the victim, and
her final item was a sample tak-
en from the panel of the right
front door of Lee's white Nis-
san Sentra.

She revealed during day four
of the trial that a mixture of
the victim's and the suspect's
blood was found on the sample
taken from the steering wheel
of the Infiniti jeep.

Mario Miller's blood was
also found in Lee's car, Ms
Schurman's tests revealed,
matching at 10 locations.

In item four, where the vic-
tim's and suspect's blood mixed
on Mr Miller's steering wheel,
Ms Schurman placed her infor-
mation into a "population
geneticist".

Investigation (FBI), is relative

Residents’ bid to save well fields

@ By CARA BRENNEN
Tribune Staff Reporter

ACTIVIST and attorney
Fred Smith has been retained
by a group of concerned Per-

pall Tract residents, as they step
up their bid to save a well field
in that area.

Mr Smith told The Tribune
that community is eager to stop
the destruction of the area —

Serious inquires only

which they claim has great eco-
logical value and should
become a protected site.

Perpall Tract was recently
featured in the local media
when Terry Miller and mem-
bers of the Bahamas Associa-
tion for Social Health
expressed concerns that a trac-
tor had been retained by the
Ministry of Housing to demol-
ish.a portion of the area for
the construction of a housing
complex.

“The residents are alarmed
that the Minister of Housing
Shane Gibson still intends to
proceed with the development
when so many are opposed to
t,” Mr Smith said.

He said that it would be irre-
sponsible to completely
destroy the area, which the res-
idents feel is one of the only
“green spaces” left on the
island.

Mr Sinith said it is essential

that developers go through a
structured process, to ensure
that when they develop areas,
“they cannot destroy the envi-
ronment.”

“The Ministry of Housing is-

not exempt just because it is a
government ministry,” he said.

Mr Smith added that Minis-
ter Gibson should be more
sensitive to the environment
even as he advances his goal
to provide affordable housing
for Bahamians.

In his capacity as legal coun-
sel for the residents, Mr Smith
said that where possible, he
will take legal action to stop
the development and assist
with any negations that may
take place.

In addition, Mr Smith noted
that residents have already col-
lected: over 400 names on a

petition against the develop-

ment.
The Bahamas National

Trust has also gone on record
to express their concerns about
the environmental conse-
quences of developing the
area.

He said that Terry Miller has
already made proposals to the
minister on how a compromise
can be reached which would
allow the housing complex to
be built without damaging all
of the well fields.

While acknowledging the
concerns, Housing Minister
Shane Gibson has maintained

- that.the project will go ahead.

He said that any trees which
should be protected in the area
will be — if the residents have a
legitimate concern.

However, he said that the
land is owned by the Water
and Sewerage Corporation and
the government has given his
ministry the “green light” to
move forward with the devel-
opment.

Tribune Staff Reporter

A NEW Bill proposed by
the government for the pro-
tection of the Bahamian con-
sumer “promises more than it
can deliver” and may lead to
far-reaching interpretation
problems in the courts, FNM
Senator Carl Bethel charged.

Criticising the Unfair Terms
in Consumer Contracts Bill,
2003, Mr Bethel said that it is
a piece of “copycat legisla-
tion” which will offer no real
consumer protection.

Addressing the Senate dur-
ing Wednesday’s session, Mr
Bethel said that the Bill is not
“a piece of original thinking
or original drafting by this
but rather a
direct copy — with a few nec-
essary changes — of the Unfair
Terms in Consumer Contracts
Regulations, 1994, formulat-
ed in the United Kingdom. |

He pointed out that the
UK’s version of the Bill is in
turn a copy of a directive
issued by the European Com-
mission to its member states.

“This Bill is the first piece of
European Union Law that
will now be enacted in the
Bahamas,” he said.

Mr Bethel said that in order
to find the correct interpreta-
tion of many of the concepts
in the Bill, Bahamian courts
and lawyers will have to
research European Law and
the decisions of the European
Courts.

“An example of how this
European source for the law
could cause problems is the
question whether or not the
Bill will apply to contracts for
the sale of land. The Bill
before us defines a ‘supplier’
as a person who supplies
‘goods and services’. In Eng-

i FNM Senator Carl Bethel

lish Law and, therefore, in
Bahamian Law, the term
‘goods and services’ does not
apply to land. But in the
French language version of
the directive, a supplier is
defined as a ‘vendeur de
biens’ - which term does
include a seller of land,” he
explained.

Mr Bethel said that the Bill
as it stands now suffers “from
all the defects of its English
and European counterparts.”

In addition to this, further
peculiarities prevent the Bill



from being as effective a piece
of legislation as it could be,
the senator said.

“This is so because the
courts, particularly in Eng-
land, have done much to evis-
cerate; to gut, the practical
impact of this law already,”
he said.

Giving an example of this,
Mr Bethel pointed to the case:
Director General of Fair
Trading v First National Bank
(2002). -

In this case the House of
Lords reviewed a lending con-

tract issued by a bank to every
borrower, in which the bor-
rower had to sign in order to
borrow money.

The contract, said Mr
Bethel, contained a term by
which the unwary consumer
signed away established rights
guaranteed by Common Law,

without being told that “they .

had to sign away their legal
protection when they were
made to sign the lending con-
tracts.”

Mr Bethel said. that the gov-
ernment would'do more for
the benefit of consumers by
allowing judges, “when they
find a borrower who has fallen
on hard times”, to re-open
lending contracts and settle
on more lenient terms on a
case-by-case basis.

This practice, he pointed
out, would especially assist
Grand Bahamians.

“You see the people and
the economy of Freeport,
Grand Bahama, having been
devastated by the ravages of
three hurricanes, really needs
some relief from some terms
of the.loans borrowed during
good times.

“This Bill will not help the
‘good borrowers’ of Freeport
who have fallen on hard times,
lost their jobs by the thou-
sands and who wallow in a 20
per cent jobless rate because
of the inactivity of this gov-
ernment. This Bill will not

provide relief. This Bill can-

not help them.'No help. No
hope for Grand Bahamians,”
he said.

Grand Bahamians, - he
added, would get more prac-
tical help from a law which
allowed the court to re-sched-
ule mortgage payments and
lower the rate of interest on
monthly loan payments.



PM wins praise for Harbour Island stand



@ PERRY Christie































THE Save Harbour Island
Association (SHIA) is congrat-
ulating Prime Minister Perry
Christie for focusing his “aes-
thetic attention” on the small
Family Island.

The Association’s represen-
tative, Grand Bahama lawyer
Fred Smith, told The Tribune
that he was very encouraged by
the prime minister’s recent com-
ments regarding the Valentine’s
Resort in Harbour Island.

During the January 12 ses-
sion of the House of Assembly,
Mr Christie called the expan-
sion of the resort’s dock and
marina “an obscenity” and
announced that he would order
an re-examination of the pro-
ject.

The prime minister said it was
inconceivable to him that a
development which is so unsuit-
ed to a small island community
was ever approved.

SHIA said it appreciates the
announcement that the expan-
sion of the Valentine’s Resort
will be reviewed.

“The association is pleased
that the prime minister is look-
ing to protect the charm of the

island which is so important to
residents, tourists and future
Bahamians,” Mr Smith said.

He added that government
should go a step further and
create by-laws to stop any
developer who is not envi-
ronmentally sensitive from
building in the Bahamas.

Otherwise, he said, large
developments will continue to
gain approval in small islands —
as in the case of the controver-
sial Bimini Bay Resort and
Casino in Bimini and the Bak-
er’s Bay project in Guana Cay,
Abaco.

“These islands like Bimini
and Guana Cay are being raped
and pillaged and destroyed,”
Mr Smith said.

Last year, the association
called on the government to
implement by-laws which would
allow Harbour Island to govern
its own affairs.

SHIA wrote a letter to the
prime minister asking him to
take steps to create a Harbour
Island By-laws Act, similar to
the Freeport By-laws Act.

The request for the Act came
after some Harbour Islanders

Raider may
have been
shot by
accomplice

A FOODSTORE raider who
was shot dead following a car
chase may have been killed by
his accomplice, it emerged last
night.

Examination of the body
indicated that Kemuel Hepburn
Jr was shot with a “cop killer”
bullet, which explodes inside
‘the victim and leaves a large
exit wound, it is claimed.

This suggested that, instead
of being killed by police, as first
thought, he was dispatched by
his accomplice, who fled with
the money.

The unconfirmed report
came from sources close to
Hepburn’s family.

Hepburn and an accomplice
fled in a white Sentra car after
robbing City Market’s Cable
Beach store of an unspecified
sum. Staff were left in shock
after the men sent customers to
the back of the store and rifled
tills.

Police were quickly on the
scene and gave chase along Sky-
line Drive, where the men
stopped the car and got out.

Hepburn, 32, was’said to have
been killed in an exchange of
gunfire with police. But a source
told The Tribune last night that
it was likely he was shot by his
fellow-raider.

“I am told by people in a
position to know that the
accomplice probably wanted to
get rid of him so he could take
off with all the money,” said the
source.

The victim was.the son of for-
mer assistant. police commis-
sioner, Kemuel Hepburn Sr.

An autopsy has reportedly
been carried out but results
have not been made public.

_ The accomplice is still at
large.

Last night, Assistant Com-
missioner Reginald Ferguson
said he could not comment on
the matter.

“TI can only say that shots
were fired, he. was hit and
received injuries and later suc-
‘cumbed.”

EDITORIAL/LETTERS TO THE EDITOR

EDITOR, The Tribune

ALMOST 1700 murders last
year and with 365 days in a year
that averages out to a whooping
five murders a day, including
Saturdays and Sundays. It is no
wonder that Jamaicans leave
their homeland in the thousands
to find a safer place in the world
to live.

I have been told some hor-
ror stories about certain areas of
that island nation where your
life isn’t worth two plug nick-
les. You wake up in the morn-
ing but there is never any cer-
tainty that you would go to bed
the following night. Trinidad, I
am. told, is now known as the
kidnapping capital of the
Caribbean. Criminals in that
island have apparently found
that they risk less when they
snatch you right off the street
and hold you until you are ran-
somed. Of course, many are
never ransomed and are mur-
dered in the process.

In the Bahamas, in recent
years, we have witnessed a grad-
ual broadening of the kinds of
crimes committed and indeed the
alarming escalation of these vari-
ety of crimes. Growing up in
Long Island in the 50s, as I recall,
we had one petty thief who
plagued our community and only
for a few years until he wandered
off to Nassau. He stole things
like a loaf of bread from your
kitchen or some food from your
pot. If you couldn’t find some-
thing you put down, you could
safely and confidently grab that
guy because he was our only
community criminal and it
always proved true that he was
the guilty one. There was no oth-
er kind of crime committed on
our island that we knew of,
except for a couple drunks fight-
ing every Saturday night after
the rake and scrape dance. A
woman, if she got pregnant and
she wasn’t married, was dis-
graced and would be avoided by
much of the community. I
believe that, that trend contin-
ued through the 60’s and possibly
the early 70’s. Both Jamaicans
and Trinidadians, I am sure, can
say the same of that period of
time in their history; so what has
happened to cause us to be in
the state we are in today?

The Bible tells us that “right-
eousness exalts a nation. But
sin is a reproach to any people”.
“Train up a.child in the way he
should go and when he is old
he will not depart from your
training”. The answer to the
question is plain and simple; we
parents have not been training
our children in the way they

-should go. We make all kinds

of excuses for our shortcomings
in this regard but sadly none of
which is valid. Children from
birth to adult age need to be

loved, fed, clothed, educated,

disciplined, trained, taught the
value of working and their lives
managed, if they are to grow to
be useful citizens of our country.
Conversely, we shouldn't expect
model children if from birth
they are neglected, abused,
unloved and left to fend for
themselves. They. will become
wards of the state and in the
scheme of things, the state was
not meant to rare children. Chil-
dren are not born pre-destined
to become criminals; they devel-
op these bad habits and das-
tardly behavior on their way up
the ladder to adulthood. Their
best chance of becoming good
citizens, lies with their parents.

The unprecedented level of
criminal activity being experi-
enced in the country today is as

Deplorable conditions
at Freeport customs
clearance operation

EDITOR, The Tribune











































RECENTLY I travelled to Freeport on December, 24,
2005 for the Christmas holiday to visit my family. I ama
Bahamian living in Florida. I was appalled and absolutely. dis-
gusted with the customs clearance operation for Discovery,
Cruises at Freeport Harbour.

Thad disembarked the ship at 1. 50pm and Bahamas Immi:
gration went smoothly and I cleared immigration in less than
about eight minutes. As I proceeded downstairs to collect ny
baggage a nice gentleman I was talking to remarked: “Let me
enjoy these last few seconds because for the next four: hours:
it’s going to be hell.” I had no idea at this point what hé was
talking about until I turned the corner and’ saw. the ghaos
occurring at customs.

I must point out that I had only checked in one bag. There,
was no line for families with four or less bags. I was forced 'to,
endure two hours on my feet standing on one single line
that curved all the way back to the building. I had bicycles.
passing over my head, trolleys being pushed into my. back,-
people jumping the lines, etc. There was no customs officer to
keep an eye on the line to ensure that no.one was jumping the:
line. In fact for the hundreds of Bahamians trying to clear cus-
toms, there was only one line where you had to go through
this one female customs officer, When you thought the night-'
mare was all over there was another line to actually clear cus-
toms that you had to go through to actually do your cus-;
toms clearance.

Once I finally cleared customs I got a porter to help me with
my bag and the whole time he was telling me that when the
other porters saw him helping me with my one bag, they all
told him he was wasting his time. Apparently they are being
tipped upwards of $70 or $80 to assist passengers in “jumping
the customs line.” The customs lady at the front of the line
seemed quite aware of what was going on and allowed the
porters to “jump the line.” I tipped him $10 to carry one
bag and he told me that it was not enough when he can get
$70 on one passenger. I do not see why he felt he deserved
more because by the time I got to him I was already at the
front of the line after standing on my feet for two hours.
Someone needs to also look into this type of abuse by these
porters.

There was a lady in front of me that had 11 items to clear
and her husband who was at the front of the line had six addi-
tional bags. The gentleman in the back of me had 10 bags by
himself. There is absolutely nothing wrong with Bahamians
bringing 10, 20 or even 30 checked bags if they like — I
don’t care. All I have to say is that there should and must be:
an express lane for families clearing customs with four bags
or less.

It was not fair to me or other Bahamians living abroad that
are coming over for the holidays or any other day for that,
matter to be subjected to this torture if we just have one or.
two pieces to clear (like many of us had). This was a barbar-
ic and disgraceful experience and I hope that when I come
again to Freeport that there are some significant changes.
Whoever is in charge of the customs operations at Freeport
Harbour must do a better job because right now it is being run
like an absolute dump.

heal for missing inmate

@ By PAUL TURNQUEST
Tribune Staff Reporter

POLICE have placed all
ports in New Providence and
the Family Islands on high
alert as part of the search for
Corey Hepburn, the only
inmate still at large following
Tuesday’s deadly prison
break.

Chief Supt Hulan Hanna
confirmed that since the
break-out, police stations
have received numerous
calls from Family Islanders
who claim to have spotted
Hepburn. However, he said,
police are confident that the
escapee is still in New Prov-
idence.

“When a person escapes
lawful custody they don’t
normally give proper
thought to where they will
go. Their whole idea is to
get out. However, it is not
uncommon to find that there
may be those who have a
well laid out, well thought

out plan once on the outside
of the facility.

“That being the case, we
have taken steps to make
sure that we have put in
strategies so that, if these
persons attempt to leave the
island or jurisdiction via any
exit route, we will be able to
apprehend them,” he said.

Four inmates escaped
from Her Majesty’s Prison
early Tuesday morning.
Convicted murderer Neil
Brown was killed in the
attempt, and two others —
convicted rapist Barry Par-
coi and convicted murderer
Forrester Bowe — were cap-
tured almost immediately.

A prison officer, Corpo-
ral Deon Bowles, was
stabbed to death during the
escape and officers Kenneth
Sweeting and David Arm-
brister were both injured
during the melee.

Mr Hanna assured the
public that it is “only a mat-

ter of time” until Hepburn is ©

back in custody.

“We got calls saying there
were sightings in some Fam-
ily Islands, but we have
alerted all our officers in the
country that we want this

. person; that he is a felon on

the loose. So we take noth-
ing for granted. But I want
to assure the public that we
have considered all of those

4

concerns that they may
have.

“If the public has any
additional information, we
want them to feel free to
bring it forward to us. Some-
times we cannot divulge to
the public the progress that
we are making in an investi-
gation, but the public can be
assured that the investiga-
tion is going extremely
well,” he said.

e Last night, a Tribune
source said Hepburn had
been seen in Bain Town, on
Augusta Street, in the Poin-
ciana Drive area. The sight-
ing took place at about 6am
on Wednesday, a day after
the jailbreak.

The source expressed sur-
prise that no church or com-
munity leaders had appealed
to Hepburn to give himself
up. “I have heard that he
wants to turn himself in, but
that he is afraid of being
killed by police, ” said the
source.

Online registration introduced for companies

AS part of the government’s bid to
promote e-commerce in the Bahamas,
the Registrar General’s Department
has announced the introduction of
online registration for companies.

The move is significant, according to
Financial Services and Investments
Minister Allyson Maynard-Gibson,
because the department “is a pivotal
and vital agency to the proper func-
tioning of the financial services and the
country at large.”

“All of the services at.the depart-
ment are now available online. We
expect the WIPO solution to our intel-
lectual property section to commence

in parliament the amendments to leg-

signatures and seals on all documents.

“This will mean that companies
incorporated under the Companies Act
can be incorporated online,” Mrs May-
nard-Gibson explained.

She went on to foreshadow several .

other initiatives aimed at improving effi-
ciency in the Registrar General’s
Department, including a plan to create a
“real-time” electronic payment system.

_ ‘Partnerships
needed’ to
| prevent abuse
of children



# By TIFFANY GRANT

Tribune Staff Reporter

MORE community partnerships are

needed to promote the message that
: child abuse should not be tolerated.

Agnes Mckenzie, chief welfare offi-

: cer for the children and family services
: division of the Department of Social Ser-
: vices, yesterday called on members of
: the public to join her mission to decrease
: the high level of child abuse in the
i Bahamas.

“We do need to move forward — even

: more so with establishing partnerships
: with groups in the community; with
: churches and non-government organi-
i sations. This needs to be done so that
i they themselves can take thé message
: that child abuse, even one, should not be
i tolerated.

Mrs Mckenzie pointed out that

: churches could begin to help by offering
i parenting programmes like the one
i presently offered through the Depart-
: ment of Rehabilitative Welfare Services.

So far this year, the Department of

Social Services has received reports of 15
: cases of-alleged child abuse.

Last year, the problem received a great

: deal of attention. In the first half of 2005,
: 309 cases of child abuse were reported in
: the Bahamas.

“In terms of the numbers that are

i reported, we say that it is a tip of the ice-

; i berg. A lot of people know of situa-
ee aan and cone erane : tions, but don’t report it. Again, this is
: where the community can have a part,”

The minister was speaking yesterday : pores
at a two-day retreat for the Bahamas ; Mrs Mckenzie said.

She added that in her view, many

‘} instances of child abuse could be avoid-
She noted that several offshore banks t edif community members were willing to

an mae i get to know each other and learn to work
recognising that it as an indispensable ! with together to tackle the problem. *

THE TRIBUNE







SO WHY SHOULD THESE KILLERS
LIVE OFF THE REST OF SOCIETY?

CAPITAL punishment needs to be to enforced in the Bahamas
once again.

We have wasted far too much time in English courts arguing
what is obviously stated in the constitution — that someone whg
takes the life of another must be executed by law.

Yet, I wonder, why aren’t the death warrants of these social
menaces not being read?

This week, I write this column heavy-hearted as a dear friend of
mine was killed in a gruesome manner.

Christoph Brown, affectionately known to friends and family as
‘Chris’, was killed in a manner that can only be comparable to the
putting down of a rabies-infested dog.

As I sit and reflect on our times together, I recall a true gen-
tleman, a kindred spirit, a man of few words but an unforgettable
presence. m

It is heart-wrenching as I reminisce and almost hear the light-
hearted laugh of one of the best, brightest young minds this coun
try had to offer.

I was introduced to Chris nine years ago by my brother-itt
law, Harry, and we immediately hit it off. I found. Chris to be a
down-to-earth chap, who was never unwilling to help his friends
when he was called upon. ”

Many persons make saints of people after their deaths, but
Chris was genuinely a unique friend, a brother. On Monday, asif
listened to my sister cry as I told Harry the grisly details sure
rounding Chris’ disappearance and discovery, as relayed to me by
my colleagues at The Tribune, what stands outs prominently in my
mnind is hearing him question “Why, why would someone want ts
kill Chris, he never had any enemies?” - '

For some years, Chris drove a taxi as a hobby, complementing
his work as the then credit and accounts manager at John S
George, Palmdale.

When I enrolled in college, there were many occasions wha
Chris and I ran into each other on campus, as he was taking
evening courses at COB in fulfilment of a bachelor’s degree.
About two years ago, Chris graduated COB and went on to}
become a certified public accountant. ee

Chris was a basketball fan and basketball player. I fondly,
remember playing on the same two-man team with him in a chal
lenge with my brother-in-law and a friend.

If ever Chris could help, whether it was by providing a ride or;
helping financially, he was there. If you ever met Chris, youl
would walk away impressed by his kindred spirit.

Adding to the tragedy of Chris’ death this week was the murder
of prison officer Corporal Deon Bowles at the hands of convict-
ed criminals, two of whom were murderers.

To hear the story of a young, bright officer cut downi in his prime,
is frightening, as we are now seeing the horrid state that our sock,
ety is slipping into. i

Now, more than ever, I lobby for hanging in the Bahamas to. be
resumed. eM

We walk around and boast that we are a Christian nation, but
really, how Christian are we? Is it just when it doesn’t affect our
political careers, is it just when it doesn’t make us the brunt of crit-
icism? |

As.a Christian nation, shouldn’t we know that the Bible says that
if a man should take another man’s life, he should pay with hi
own?!

[have the utmost respect for Deputy Prime Minister Cynthia
‘Mother’, Pratt, who outrightly stated her support of the death
penalty in further alleviating our society of murderers and hard
ened criminals.

Persons such as Barry Parcoi, who has escaped prison and
inflicted harm upon people on several occasions, should not, he
allowed to live gleefully off taxpayers each year for the rest of their
God-forsaken lives.

What does it profit law-abiding Bahamians to pay for these crim-
inal-minded individuals to eat three meals each day, watch cable
TV, live freely and enjoy woodwork and other accommodating
aspects of prison life that are now being adapted from the US?:

Does the Bahamian public know that more than $10,000 of its
tax monies are spent on maintaining each of these convicts per
year?

This fact disgusts me!

To the families of both Christoph and Mr Bowles, I encourage
you to be strong and steadfast. We have again lost two of the best
at the hands of ruthless nuisances who refuse to take a positive,
meaningful place in society.

Chris, may your soul rest in peace, my brother. You will always
hold a special place in my heart and mind. Your impact upon my
life is unforgettable.

a SALVATION Army Advisory Board member Felix Stubbs, left, presents second-place
certificate to Shane Albury during the bell-ringers appreciation lunch on January 18. Albury is
president of Alpha Phi Alpha fraternity, which raised more than $2,800 during the kettle drive —
an amount topped only by the veteran bell-ringers of the Rotary Club of East Nassau.

Salvation Army brings aid
to more than 3,700 people

A RECORD outpouring of
generosity during the annual
Christmas Kettle Drive helped
the Salvation Army provide
for more than 3,700 people this
year, serving hope and help
along with goods and gifts to
hospital patients, needy chil-
_dren, shut-ins and others hard-
ship found and fortune forgot.

“The response this year was
great; it was fantastic, over-
whelming," said Major Lester
Ferguson, Divisional Com-
mander of the Salvation Army.

Ferguson was addressing
representatives on Wednesday
from some 20 civic organisa-
tions invited to the bell-ringers
appreciation lunch at the
Army's headquarters on
Mackey Street, to learn which
club took top honours for most
funds raised - an annual com-
petition that adds spirit and
drive to the kettle campaign.

"We raised just over
$76,000, the highest amount
ever. And of that, more than
$25,000 was raised by clubs
alone,” Ferguson said.

The previous record for
most funds raised was $57,000.

Donations helped the Sal-

vation Army touch the lives of
thousands of Bahamians, pur-
chasing pens, notebooks and
books for schoolchildren, hot
meals for the hungry or home-
less, food packages, toiletries
and other supplies.

Much of what was donated
went to those hard hit by the
hurricanes of 2004 and 2005.

' "We purchased toiletry gift
packs for hospitals and other
institutions that were distrib- -
uted to 1,400 people," said |
Major Ferguson.

"We used a small portion of
the funds for our Christmas
Cheer programme which fed
over 400 people. We also pro-
vided 425 children with edu-
cational supplies and toys, pur-
chased $33,000 worth of food
supplies for needy families and
were able to give 980 food
vouchers.

“People don't realise that
the few pennies put into our
kettles add up in such a large
way," said Major Ferguson.
“We were met with over- -
whelming support from the
public and we wish to take this
opportunity to thank them for
their contribution."

Reverend Sam Boodle, a
bell-ringer for the Rotary Club
of Nassau, said collecting for
the Salvation Army did not
take a lot of arm-twisting.

"Someone told me the only
organisation he knows that can
take a dollar and get $5 out of
it is the Salvation Army," Rev
Boodle told the crowd of vol-
unteers gathered for the
(donated) luncheon. "The
needy will always be with us.
Those who have more should
give to those who have less."

Advisory board chairman
Judy VC Munroe read off the
names of the winning clubs.

Winning the coveted Bell
Ringer Award plaque was the
Rotary Club of East Nassau
which collected $2,961. Alpha
Phi Alpha fraternity was sec-
ond, only a few dollars short of
the winner with a total collec-
tion of $2,839. Third place
went to the Rotary Club of
West

Nassau with $2,426, while
Rotary Club of Nassau placed
third runner-up with $2,282
and the Zonta Club of Nassau
came in fifth with just under
$2,000.

COB hono
retired bis

ATTORNEY General
and Minister of Education
Alfred Sears said retired
Anglican Bishop Michael
Hartley Eldon’s is synony-
mous with “scholarship and
excellence, patriotism and
service, integrity and
warmth”.

Minster Sears’ remarks
were made on Thursday at
the official naming of the
College of the Bahamas
(COB) Thompson Boule-
vard Complex in honour of
Bishop Eldon, who is also
council chairman Emeritus
of COB.

“The College has chosen
the name of a person who
knows the value of educa-
tion and who believes in the
preservation of the Bahami-
an heritage,” Mr Sears said.

He added that the college
has chosen a man who ded-
icated his life to rendering
unselfish service to the people
of the Bahamas, and who has
earned the honour through his
many acts of service.

“We are esteeming this great
son of the Bahamas by entrust-
ing his legacy as a blueprint for
the role this facility is to have in
the advancement of the College
and ultimately University of the
Bahamas.”

Dr Keva Bethel, president
Emeritus of the College of the
Bahamas and sister of Bishop
Eldon, said she was “sad” that
her brother was unable to be
present to “experience this
moment in person and to thank
the college.”

She added that Bishop
Eldon’s involvement in the ear-
ly development of the college
was an important part of his
ministry.

“He viewed his service to the
college as integral component
of his personal contribution to
the full development of the spir-

itual, intellectual and material of ~

a newly independent Bahami-
an people,” Dr Bethel said.

She noted that during his
travels throughout the
Bahamas, her brother came to
know the potential and the aspi-
rations of the Bahamian peo-
ple, and recognised how the
opportunities provided by the
college could enable dreams to
be fulfilled.

“The establishment of the
College of the Bahamas, com-
prehensive in scope, and inclu-
sive in reach, is critical to help
Bahamians develop necessary
skills and knowledge, and not
least of all, character to stand
with pride among their peers,”
said Dr Bethel.

The Michael Eldon Complex
was purchased from Boulevard
Investment Limited, a Bahami-
an company, for $3.2 million.
The purchase marked a signifi-
cant milestone in the life of the
institution, as it became the first

Elliston Rahming is urged to
stand down by former inmate

FROM page one

He said that prisons are man-
aged by persons with a broad
range of knowledge and it was
not uncommon for a prison to
be managed by a criminologist.

Commenting on the Prison
Reform Commission’s report
on the state of HMP, which at
the time was chaired by Dr
Rahming, Mr Culmer said that
the report “belittled his char-
acter” and was devoid of any
recommendations he made to
the commission.

“The only thing made in the
report about me was criticism.
Number one was that I man-
aged the prison poorly. I can
only do my best with the mate-
rial and staff that I have and
once I didn’t get it I couldn’t
do anything,” Mr Culmer said.

However, Dr Rahming said
that Mr Culmer was consulted
during the commission’s fact-
finding exercise. “One of the
first persons the commission
spoke to in great detail was
Edwin Culmer,” he said.

Dr Rahming also said that
wheels are in motion for secu-
rity issues at the prison to be
improved.

“Last August, 50 new recruits
graduated as prison officers. That
was the largest contingent in the
history of HMP. We’ve just fin-
ished interviewing another 290
persons as potential prison offi-
cers and government has agreed
to bring on 75 of them. I think
there is a commitment. -

“If you take the primary wall
for instance. There has been
some agitation for a long period
for the fortification of that.

“The minister has indicated

that the money is now available.
We have requested the funds
for that formally and I expect
that by early next week. The
money will come in incremen-
tally so that we may provide the
kind of fortification that is nec-
essary,” he said.

The superintendent said the
prison is “big enough and man
enough” to conduct an investi-
gation into the escape and that
a report will be shared with the
public when it’s done.

“The police force is conduct-
ing its investigation, we are con-
ducting our investigation and
this investigation will lead to a
report that will be shared with
the public,” Dr Rahming said.

At a press conference follow-

ing the break-out of four
inmates, in which prison guard
Corporal Deon Bowles was
stabbed to death, Dr Rahming
said there were numerous
escapes under his predecessors
— including, he said, 24 under
the watch of Mr Culmer.

Dr Rahming pointed out that
Corey Hepburn, one of those
who escaped on Monday and
who up until press time last
night was still at large, previ-
ously escaped while Mr Culmer
was in charge of the prison.

Mr Culmer denied. that 24
persons escaped under his
watch and said that Dr Rah-
ming was being dishonest.

Dr Rahming said he was try- _

ing to prove the point that by
their very nature prisons are
places where people ny to
escape.

“Prisoners are no respecters
of superintendents. They
escaped under Mr Major, they
escaped under Mr Culmer and
it’s the same thing that is hap-
pening now. So when Mr Cul-
mer begins to pontificate, the
fact is under his watch some 24
inmates escaped,” he said.

“Mr Culmer once again denied
this claim.

DNA evidence in Miller murder case

FROM page one

said the analyst, is one in 170
billion.

The odds of selecting another
individual to fit the suspect's
DNA profile is one in 11,000,
said another DNA expert.

Petros Tsingelis, technical
leader of Broward County's
DNA unit, said on April 11,
2005, he analysed the results
provided by Ms Schurman. He
used Ms Schurman's results to
enter numbers into a special
computer database to obtain a
statistical evaluation. His work
was specifically on itein four,
the only item which contained
the blood of Lee, according to
the experts.

His findings were that the
chances of finding a specific
individual with the same DNA
profile is one in 11,000, com-
pared to the Bahamian popu-
lation database.

Between Ms Schurman and
Mr Tsingelis, the custody officer
handling the information was

Gladys Pena, who also testified
during the trial before Senior
Justice Anita Allen.

Ms Schurman travelled from
Alaska to give evidence in the
trial, while the other two DNA
officers still work in the DNA
Lab in the crime division of
Broward County's sheriff's
office.

Meanwhile, chief prosecutor
Bernard Turner established a
chain of command between the
Bahamian officers who handled
the evidence before it was
shipped abroad.

Sergeant Howard Bethel col-
lected samples from the body
of Mario Miller from the
morgue at Princess Margaret
Hospital.

Corporal 1777 Phyllis Smith,
attached to the forensics science
lab as an exhibit officer, testified
that on June 23, 2002, she
received a tissue, a pair of den-
im trousers, and 14 swabs. She
also received three glass tubes
of blood from Corporal 2179
Stubbs, which were said to

belong to Lee.

She handed the pieces of evi-
dence over to Corporal
Rochelle Deleveaux, who said
she additionally received eight
pieces of carpet, three pieces
of upholstery, two pieces of
duct tape, and 13 pieces of
vinyl.

Detective Constable 2458
Brown gave her a multi-
coloured shirt, a white T-shirt,
fingernail clippings, and debris
from the body.

When cross-examined by
attorney Murrio Duciile, Tama-
ra Taylor,-and Philip Hilton, she
testified that she did the prepa-
ration work for the evidence,
but did not conduct any analy-
sis.

Mr Turner was assisted by
attorneys Neil Brathwaite and
Calvin Seymour.

Minister Miller and his fami-
ly were present in court for yes-
terday’s proceedings.

The trial, with a jury of nine
women and three men, is set to
continue on Monday.

for university status

@ By BRENT STUBBS
Senior Sports Reporter

THE College of the Bahamas is preparing its
move to university status and Greg Harshaw is
making sure that the athletic department does
not get left behind.

On Monday, Harshaw and the college’s Lady
Caribs basketball team returned from a success-
ful trip to the US Virgin Islands, where they went
undefeated in the two games they played.

Back home, Harshaw said while the trip was the
first of a NCAA nature, it certainly will not be the -
last for the Caribs athletic team this year.

“The trip served two purposes,” Harshaw said.
“One, I felt we in the Bahamas had to take the
first step in the introduction of a Caribbean
League, so that was why we took that first step
and went to the Virgin Islands.

“Secondly, I wanted to expose our student ath-
letes here to NCAA competition, so I felt going to
the Virgin Islands could knock out two birds in
one stone. That was the reason behind the trip. I
thought it was very successful.”

Prior to going to the Virgin Islands, Harshaw
said he participated in the NCAA Convention
in Indianapolis, Indiana where he met with five
universities from Puerto Rico with a view of get-
ting them on board the Caribbean League.

“Now that we have this interest, we’re moving
on to the next step, which is how to put it togeth-
er,” he stated.

Because it will not be feasible economically to
travel as often as they should, Harshaw said their
plans include competing against each country at

least once or twice a year on a home or away
basis — not just in basketball, but in volleyball
and soccer.

“We're at the beginning steps, something that
we will have to work out with the other schools in
the Caribbean,” he further noted.

Having to start from scratch to bring the COB’s
athletic programme up to stream with limited
facilities, Harshaw said the Lady Caribs’ basketball
team was the only organisation in full operation
and so they got the first preference to travel.

But in the meantime as he continue to work on
the upgrade of facilities, Harshaw said he have
another task of trying to point out what the
NCAA and inter-collegiate competition is all
about.

“One of the important things about what we are
trying to do is to encourage the Bahamian stu-
dent-athletes to stay on the island and two, it
gives us an opportunity to be represented at the
collegiate level.”

As a part of the ongoing development pro-
gramme, Harshaw said they are first trying to
produce vibrant clubs that they intend to turn in
collegiate teams.

Joining the men and women basketball teams
are the men and women soccer teams, the men’s
tennis team and the track and field team. But
Harshaw said he’s keenly interested in producing
their men and women volleyball teams.

“Our next step is to build a gym,” said Har-
shaw, who indicated that it is one of the main
areas that is hindering the growth and develop-
ment of the programme right now.

“For us to become a part of the parent organ-
isation like the NCAA or NAIA, we have to

have the facilities,” he said. “We can’t take that
next step until we have those things in place.”

Unlike the other Caribbean countries, Har-
shaw said the Bahamas seemed to be the only one
that is behind in its own facilities.

He noted that when they travellled to the Vir-
gin Islands, they played in a $13 million gymna-
sium that was provided by the university they
played against.

“Now that they have that gym, (NBA’s) San
Antonio (Spurs) come down and practise dur-
ing the off-season,” Harshaw said. “They host
what they call Paradise Jam every fall where they
host D1 schools with men and women coming
there.

“The schools we are dealing with in Puerto
Rico have five NCAA members already. So they
already have those facilities. But I haven’t con-

tacted Jamaica and the other countries that we
hope to get involved in this NCAA league.”

Once the league is implemented, Harshaw said
one of the benefits will be the fact that the win-
ning team from the Caribbean would get an auto-
matic bid into the NCAA tournaments in the
sports that they play in.

“To me, that would be exciting,” he said.

“That’s what the Puerto Rican schools realise:

and that is what the UVI school realises. If we can
create that Caribbean league, we can earn that

automatic qualifying bid to play in the NCAA big.

dance.

“So I’m sure a lot of the student athletes and
parents would prefer to stay home. So what we
are trying to do as a programme is to give them
that opportunity.”

As a fundraiser to assist COB’s athletic depart-

iment, Harshaw has been working closely with:
‘Ricardo Richardson, the Bahamian chief execu-
itive officer of the American Basketball Associa-
‘tion, to bring a team here to compete in an exhi:
bition game.

From March.24-26, COB will be hosting the
BTVI Tertiary Basketball Tournament in Grand
Bahama. Assistant athletic director, Sean ‘Bass’
Bastian said they intend to host a team from
Florida and Kentucky.

“We’re looking for those two ABA teams com-
ing down for this tournament and we hope that in
the future is that we can have them come to New
Providence,” Bastian said.

“But the problem is trying to get the use of
the Kendal Isaacs Gymnasium with a date where
we can have that event ‘hosted there.”

However, before that, Bastian said COB will
host the annual Dr. Keva Bethel Basketball Clas-
sic, but unlike the past, this year’s tournament
next month will only cater to the tertiary schools.

Success Training College, BTVI and COB both
here in New Providence and the Grand Bahama’
campus will be participating.

Bernard Thompson, a former NBA and Euro-
pean player/coach, will be the special guest for the
tournament. '

“This is a different type of spin that we are
doing with the Dr Keva Bethel. In the past, we
invited the local teams and high schools,” Bastian
stressed. “But this year, we are focusing on the
tertiary schools,”

While here, Harshaw said Thompson will also
be scouting the local talent to see whether or not
a team can be assembled from the Bahamas to
play in the European League in the fall.

Rupert’
Legend
triumphs
at regatta

THE 2006 New Years Regat-
ta, dedicated to Mack Elijah
Knowles, was held on Sunday
January 15, 2006.

It was meant to be a two day
event, in which C class vessels
would race on Saturday and A
class vessels on Sunday, but due
to high winds, Saturday’s events
were cancelled.

Five C class vessels were
scheduled to sail, including Sac-
rifice, The Vitamalt Thunder-
bird, Lady Ruthnel, Barbarian,
and Lady T.

Organisers said the C class
race will take place in Long
Island during the Long Island
Regatta, and the B class leg will
sail at a later date in Nassau.

The boats that participated
in the A class were the Earl’s,
Rupert’s Legend, Thunderbird,
and New Courageous.

Said the organisers in a press
release: “Sunday’s event includ-
ed three races and they all went
very well without any hitches.
The first race was won by the
Rupert’s Legend, who led from
start to finish, followed by the
Thunderbird and the New
Courageous.

was a great challenge to be sure
not to go aground.

“The second race was well
done as well and was again won
by the Rupert’s Legend fol-
lowed by the Thunderbird and
the New Courageous.

“The third race was once
again won by the Rupert’s leg-
end. Coming in second was the
New Courageous followed by
the Thunderbird. The races
were very competitive and very
well done.”

The organisers said they were

honoured to have visitors from
the US and Canada participate
in the A class races, sailing as
part of the, crew of Thunder-
bird. #
The National Champion of
the 2006 New Years Regatta

CI Gibson staff /
walk out after

alleged

# By PAUL TURNQUEST
Tribune Staff Reporter

TEACHERS at C I Gibson
Senior High School staged a sit-
out yesterday after a student
allegedly beat up a teacher.

According to union officials,
teachers have given the admin-
istration until Wednesday of
next week to implement a num-
ber of security initiatives - or
face further sit-outs and indus-
trial action.

This announcement comes
following a report on Thursday
that a music teacher at the
school was assaulted by a grade
11 male student.

Speaking to The Tribune,
Bahamas Union of Teachers
(BUT) secretary-general Belin-
da Wilson confirmed that the
teachers staged a sit-out yester-
day as a result of the attack.

“The teachers decided to sit
in today with the permission of
the union, and come up with
some sort of safety plan that is
workable for the entire school.
They will present it to the prin-
cipal at 3pm, and the union’s
area vice-president Donathon
Cox is there helping them to
formulate that plan,” she said.

If the short-term measures of
this strategy are not imple-
mented by Wednesday, Mrs
Wilson reported that the teach-
ers “will take further action”.

“They will put together some
short-term and long-term plans,
and give the principal 72 hours,
or until next week Wednesday,
to have the short-term plans

Where the Prices are great and there

implemented. These plans must
be at least started or else the

. teachers will take further’

action,” she warned.

In Thursday’s attack, the
teacher in question had report-
edly stumbled upon a male and
female student in an “intimate”
sexual setting, and attempted
to intervene.

It is not absolutely clear how
the teacher was assaulted by the
male student, but it is-known
that his shirt was torn in two
places during the scuffle.

Mr Cox said the new initia-
tives teachers are hoping to
implement would ensure the
safety of everyone at C I Gib-
son.

' “Some of the ideas are to
have all visitors stop at the secu-
rity and sign in, and have licence

‘plates of vehicles taken as too .

many persons are just visiting
the school.

“All students must have iden-
tification badges by February 6
- which should be worn at all
times because it is a part of the
school uniform,” he said.

Mr Cox also reported that
they are looking for consistent
punishment from the adminis-
tration for students who do not
adhere to the rules and =e
tions of the school.

“Like if a student cusses a
teacher out, they don’t want any
verbal reprimand saying ‘Don’t
do it again’. We must be con-
sistent with the reprimand. If it
warrants a suspension or expul-
sion we want these things imple-
mented consistently,” he said.

Prison boss is

urged to resign Jink accused
after break-out

@ By RUPERT MISSICK Jr
Chief Reporter

PRISON boss Dr Elliston
Rahming was advised to quit
yesterday by a former inmate
who warned him he would
always have problems while he
is in the job.

The former prisoner said Dr
Rahming should allow those
“who know that jail to run that
jail” following this week’s
deadly escape bid by four crim-
inals.

Stephen Seymour, who
served six and a half years at

Fox Hill Prison on an armed ”

robbery charge, made the com-
ment during Love 97’s Issues
of the Day, where he appeared
alongside former prison super-
intendent Edwin Culmer.

“There is an element in that
fraternity who will not work
with you and it is evident that
they are not working with you.

“See what you can do to get
out of that position and let
those guys who know that jail
run that jail because as long as
you are there you are going to
have problems.

“The blood that is going to

fall in that prison, and it’s going
to‘happen shortly, is going to
fall on the heads of these lead-
ers,” he said.

Mr Seymour said that,
because it was seen as a politi-
cal appointment, Dr Rahming’s
stint as prison superintendent
will not be supportive.

“For some reason the entire
public disagrees with your
appointment. I think it was a

political favour done for you

by the prime minister.

“The prisons system is a fra-
ternity of men who take on a
career. Your appointment is
the same (former Prime Minis-
ter Hubert) Ingraham made
with (former superintendent of
prisons) Philip Turner,” Mr
Seymour said.

However, Dr Rahming, who
joined the show later in its
broadcast, said he was not
offered any favours by the gov-
ernment by being made prison
superintendent and that he was
not earning a cent more than
he earned at the office of the
prime minister. In fact, it was a
sacrifice for him to be there.

DNA experts

to murder

B@ By FELICITY INGRAHAM
Tribune Staff Reporter

DNA experts have linked
Ricardo Miller, also known as
Tamar Lee, to the murder of
Mario Miller through tested
blood samples collected from
the victim's vehicle.

Julie Schurman, a DNA ana-
lyst attached to Broward Coun-
ty Crime Lab at the time the
murder occurred in 2002, said
she tested 10 items she
received from the forensics lab
in Nassau.

The first two items were
"known samples" from the vic-
tim Mario Miller, and one of
the defendant's, called "Tamar
Lee" by the analyst.

Also on trial for the murder
of Cabinet Minister Leslie
Miller's son is Ryan Miller,
brother of Ricardo Miller.

The third item Ms Schurman
received was a portion of tissue
collected from the victim's 1997
Infiniti Jeep. The fourth sample
was taken from the steering
wheel, and the fifth from the
armrest near the driver's seat.

Ms Schurman said the sixth

and seventh items were nail
clippings from the victim, and
her final item was a sample tak-
en from the panel of the right
front door of Lee's white Nis-
san Sentra.

She revealed during day four
of the trial that a mixture of
the victim's and the suspect's
blood was found on the sample
taken from the steering wheel
of the Infiniti jeep.

Mario Miller's blood was
also found in Lee's car, Ms
Schurman's tests revealed,
matching at 10 locations.

In item four, where the vic-
tim's and suspect's blood mixed
on Mr Miller's steering wheel,
Ms Schurman placed her infor-
mation into a "population
geneticist".

Investigation (FBI), is relative

Residents’ bid to save well fields

@ By CARA BRENNEN
Tribune Staff Reporter

ACTIVIST and attorney
Fred Smith has been retained
by a group of concerned Per-

pall Tract residents, as they step
up their bid to save a well field
in that area.

Mr Smith told The Tribune
that community is eager to stop
the destruction of the area —

Serious inquires only

which they claim has great eco-
logical value and should
become a protected site.

Perpall Tract was recently
featured in the local media
when Terry Miller and mem-
bers of the Bahamas Associa-
tion for Social Health
expressed concerns that a trac-
tor had been retained by the
Ministry of Housing to demol-
ish.a portion of the area for
the construction of a housing
complex.

“The residents are alarmed
that the Minister of Housing
Shane Gibson still intends to
proceed with the development
when so many are opposed to
t,” Mr Smith said.

He said that it would be irre-
sponsible to completely
destroy the area, which the res-
idents feel is one of the only
“green spaces” left on the
island.

Mr Sinith said it is essential

that developers go through a
structured process, to ensure
that when they develop areas,
“they cannot destroy the envi-
ronment.”

“The Ministry of Housing is-

not exempt just because it is a
government ministry,” he said.

Mr Smith added that Minis-
ter Gibson should be more
sensitive to the environment
even as he advances his goal
to provide affordable housing
for Bahamians.

In his capacity as legal coun-
sel for the residents, Mr Smith
said that where possible, he
will take legal action to stop
the development and assist
with any negations that may
take place.

In addition, Mr Smith noted
that residents have already col-
lected: over 400 names on a

petition against the develop-

ment.
The Bahamas National

Trust has also gone on record
to express their concerns about
the environmental conse-
quences of developing the
area.

He said that Terry Miller has
already made proposals to the
minister on how a compromise
can be reached which would
allow the housing complex to
be built without damaging all
of the well fields.

While acknowledging the
concerns, Housing Minister
Shane Gibson has maintained

- that.the project will go ahead.

He said that any trees which
should be protected in the area
will be — if the residents have a
legitimate concern.

However, he said that the
land is owned by the Water
and Sewerage Corporation and
the government has given his
ministry the “green light” to
move forward with the devel-
opment.

Tribune Staff Reporter

A NEW Bill proposed by
the government for the pro-
tection of the Bahamian con-
sumer “promises more than it
can deliver” and may lead to
far-reaching interpretation
problems in the courts, FNM
Senator Carl Bethel charged.

Criticising the Unfair Terms
in Consumer Contracts Bill,
2003, Mr Bethel said that it is
a piece of “copycat legisla-
tion” which will offer no real
consumer protection.

Addressing the Senate dur-
ing Wednesday’s session, Mr
Bethel said that the Bill is not
“a piece of original thinking
or original drafting by this
but rather a
direct copy — with a few nec-
essary changes — of the Unfair
Terms in Consumer Contracts
Regulations, 1994, formulat-
ed in the United Kingdom. |

He pointed out that the
UK’s version of the Bill is in
turn a copy of a directive
issued by the European Com-
mission to its member states.

“This Bill is the first piece of
European Union Law that
will now be enacted in the
Bahamas,” he said.

Mr Bethel said that in order
to find the correct interpreta-
tion of many of the concepts
in the Bill, Bahamian courts
and lawyers will have to
research European Law and
the decisions of the European
Courts.

“An example of how this
European source for the law
could cause problems is the
question whether or not the
Bill will apply to contracts for
the sale of land. The Bill
before us defines a ‘supplier’
as a person who supplies
‘goods and services’. In Eng-

i FNM Senator Carl Bethel

lish Law and, therefore, in
Bahamian Law, the term
‘goods and services’ does not
apply to land. But in the
French language version of
the directive, a supplier is
defined as a ‘vendeur de
biens’ - which term does
include a seller of land,” he
explained.

Mr Bethel said that the Bill
as it stands now suffers “from
all the defects of its English
and European counterparts.”

In addition to this, further
peculiarities prevent the Bill



from being as effective a piece
of legislation as it could be,
the senator said.

“This is so because the
courts, particularly in Eng-
land, have done much to evis-
cerate; to gut, the practical
impact of this law already,”
he said.

Giving an example of this,
Mr Bethel pointed to the case:
Director General of Fair
Trading v First National Bank
(2002). -

In this case the House of
Lords reviewed a lending con-

tract issued by a bank to every
borrower, in which the bor-
rower had to sign in order to
borrow money.

The contract, said Mr
Bethel, contained a term by
which the unwary consumer
signed away established rights
guaranteed by Common Law,

without being told that “they .

had to sign away their legal
protection when they were
made to sign the lending con-
tracts.”

Mr Bethel said. that the gov-
ernment would'do more for
the benefit of consumers by
allowing judges, “when they
find a borrower who has fallen
on hard times”, to re-open
lending contracts and settle
on more lenient terms on a
case-by-case basis.

This practice, he pointed
out, would especially assist
Grand Bahamians.

“You see the people and
the economy of Freeport,
Grand Bahama, having been
devastated by the ravages of
three hurricanes, really needs
some relief from some terms
of the.loans borrowed during
good times.

“This Bill will not help the
‘good borrowers’ of Freeport
who have fallen on hard times,
lost their jobs by the thou-
sands and who wallow in a 20
per cent jobless rate because
of the inactivity of this gov-
ernment. This Bill will not

provide relief. This Bill can-

not help them.'No help. No
hope for Grand Bahamians,”
he said.

Grand Bahamians, - he
added, would get more prac-
tical help from a law which
allowed the court to re-sched-
ule mortgage payments and
lower the rate of interest on
monthly loan payments.



PM wins praise for Harbour Island stand



@ PERRY Christie































THE Save Harbour Island
Association (SHIA) is congrat-
ulating Prime Minister Perry
Christie for focusing his “aes-
thetic attention” on the small
Family Island.

The Association’s represen-
tative, Grand Bahama lawyer
Fred Smith, told The Tribune
that he was very encouraged by
the prime minister’s recent com-
ments regarding the Valentine’s
Resort in Harbour Island.

During the January 12 ses-
sion of the House of Assembly,
Mr Christie called the expan-
sion of the resort’s dock and
marina “an obscenity” and
announced that he would order
an re-examination of the pro-
ject.

The prime minister said it was
inconceivable to him that a
development which is so unsuit-
ed to a small island community
was ever approved.

SHIA said it appreciates the
announcement that the expan-
sion of the Valentine’s Resort
will be reviewed.

“The association is pleased
that the prime minister is look-
ing to protect the charm of the

island which is so important to
residents, tourists and future
Bahamians,” Mr Smith said.

He added that government
should go a step further and
create by-laws to stop any
developer who is not envi-
ronmentally sensitive from
building in the Bahamas.

Otherwise, he said, large
developments will continue to
gain approval in small islands —
as in the case of the controver-
sial Bimini Bay Resort and
Casino in Bimini and the Bak-
er’s Bay project in Guana Cay,
Abaco.

“These islands like Bimini
and Guana Cay are being raped
and pillaged and destroyed,”
Mr Smith said.

Last year, the association
called on the government to
implement by-laws which would
allow Harbour Island to govern
its own affairs.

SHIA wrote a letter to the
prime minister asking him to
take steps to create a Harbour
Island By-laws Act, similar to
the Freeport By-laws Act.

The request for the Act came
after some Harbour Islanders

Raider may
have been
shot by
accomplice

A FOODSTORE raider who
was shot dead following a car
chase may have been killed by
his accomplice, it emerged last
night.

Examination of the body
indicated that Kemuel Hepburn
Jr was shot with a “cop killer”
bullet, which explodes inside
‘the victim and leaves a large
exit wound, it is claimed.

This suggested that, instead
of being killed by police, as first
thought, he was dispatched by
his accomplice, who fled with
the money.

The unconfirmed report
came from sources close to
Hepburn’s family.

Hepburn and an accomplice
fled in a white Sentra car after
robbing City Market’s Cable
Beach store of an unspecified
sum. Staff were left in shock
after the men sent customers to
the back of the store and rifled
tills.

Police were quickly on the
scene and gave chase along Sky-
line Drive, where the men
stopped the car and got out.

Hepburn, 32, was’said to have
been killed in an exchange of
gunfire with police. But a source
told The Tribune last night that
it was likely he was shot by his
fellow-raider.

“I am told by people in a
position to know that the
accomplice probably wanted to
get rid of him so he could take
off with all the money,” said the
source.

The victim was.the son of for-
mer assistant. police commis-
sioner, Kemuel Hepburn Sr.

An autopsy has reportedly
been carried out but results
have not been made public.

_ The accomplice is still at
large.

Last night, Assistant Com-
missioner Reginald Ferguson
said he could not comment on
the matter.

“TI can only say that shots
were fired, he. was hit and
received injuries and later suc-
‘cumbed.”

EDITORIAL/LETTERS TO THE EDITOR

EDITOR, The Tribune

ALMOST 1700 murders last
year and with 365 days in a year
that averages out to a whooping
five murders a day, including
Saturdays and Sundays. It is no
wonder that Jamaicans leave
their homeland in the thousands
to find a safer place in the world
to live.

I have been told some hor-
ror stories about certain areas of
that island nation where your
life isn’t worth two plug nick-
les. You wake up in the morn-
ing but there is never any cer-
tainty that you would go to bed
the following night. Trinidad, I
am. told, is now known as the
kidnapping capital of the
Caribbean. Criminals in that
island have apparently found
that they risk less when they
snatch you right off the street
and hold you until you are ran-
somed. Of course, many are
never ransomed and are mur-
dered in the process.

In the Bahamas, in recent
years, we have witnessed a grad-
ual broadening of the kinds of
crimes committed and indeed the
alarming escalation of these vari-
ety of crimes. Growing up in
Long Island in the 50s, as I recall,
we had one petty thief who
plagued our community and only
for a few years until he wandered
off to Nassau. He stole things
like a loaf of bread from your
kitchen or some food from your
pot. If you couldn’t find some-
thing you put down, you could
safely and confidently grab that
guy because he was our only
community criminal and it
always proved true that he was
the guilty one. There was no oth-
er kind of crime committed on
our island that we knew of,
except for a couple drunks fight-
ing every Saturday night after
the rake and scrape dance. A
woman, if she got pregnant and
she wasn’t married, was dis-
graced and would be avoided by
much of the community. I
believe that, that trend contin-
ued through the 60’s and possibly
the early 70’s. Both Jamaicans
and Trinidadians, I am sure, can
say the same of that period of
time in their history; so what has
happened to cause us to be in
the state we are in today?

The Bible tells us that “right-
eousness exalts a nation. But
sin is a reproach to any people”.
“Train up a.child in the way he
should go and when he is old
he will not depart from your
training”. The answer to the
question is plain and simple; we
parents have not been training
our children in the way they

Deplorable conditions
at Freeport customs
clearance operation

EDITOR, The Tribune











































RECENTLY I travelled to Freeport on December, 24,
2005 for the Christmas holiday to visit my family. I ama
Bahamian living in Florida. I was appalled and absolutely. dis-
gusted with the customs clearance operation for Discovery,
Cruises at Freeport Harbour.

Thad disembarked the ship at 1. 50pm and Bahamas Immi:
gration went smoothly and I cleared immigration in less than
about eight minutes. As I proceeded downstairs to collect ny
baggage a nice gentleman I was talking to remarked: “Let me
enjoy these last few seconds because for the next four: hours:
it’s going to be hell.” I had no idea at this point what hé was
talking about until I turned the corner and’ saw. the ghaos
occurring at customs.

I must point out that I had only checked in one bag. There,
was no line for families with four or less bags. I was forced 'to,
endure two hours on my feet standing on one single line
that curved all the way back to the building. I had bicycles.
passing over my head, trolleys being pushed into my. back,-
people jumping the lines, etc. There was no customs officer to
keep an eye on the line to ensure that no.one was jumping the:
line. In fact for the hundreds of Bahamians trying to clear cus-
toms, there was only one line where you had to go through
this one female customs officer, When you thought the night-'
mare was all over there was another line to actually clear cus-
toms that you had to go through to actually do your cus-;
toms clearance.

Once I finally cleared customs I got a porter to help me with
my bag and the whole time he was telling me that when the
other porters saw him helping me with my one bag, they all
told him he was wasting his time. Apparently they are being
tipped upwards of $70 or $80 to assist passengers in “jumping
the customs line.” The customs lady at the front of the line
seemed quite aware of what was going on and allowed the
porters to “jump the line.” I tipped him $10 to carry one
bag and he told me that it was not enough when he can get
$70 on one passenger. I do not see why he felt he deserved
more because by the time I got to him I was already at the
front of the line after standing on my feet for two hours.
Someone needs to also look into this type of abuse by these
porters.

There was a lady in front of me that had 11 items to clear
and her husband who was at the front of the line had six addi-
tional bags. The gentleman in the back of me had 10 bags by
himself. There is absolutely nothing wrong with Bahamians
bringing 10, 20 or even 30 checked bags if they like — I
don’t care. All I have to say is that there should and must be:
an express lane for families clearing customs with four bags
or less.

It was not fair to me or other Bahamians living abroad that
are coming over for the holidays or any other day for that,
matter to be subjected to this torture if we just have one or.
two pieces to clear (like many of us had). This was a barbar-
ic and disgraceful experience and I hope that when I come
again to Freeport that there are some significant changes.
Whoever is in charge of the customs operations at Freeport
Harbour must do a better job because right now it is being run
like an absolute dump.

heal for missing inmate

@ By PAUL TURNQUEST
Tribune Staff Reporter

POLICE have placed all
ports in New Providence and
the Family Islands on high
alert as part of the search for
Corey Hepburn, the only
inmate still at large following
Tuesday’s deadly prison
break.

Chief Supt Hulan Hanna
confirmed that since the
break-out, police stations
have received numerous
calls from Family Islanders
who claim to have spotted
Hepburn. However, he said,
police are confident that the
escapee is still in New Prov-
idence.

“When a person escapes
lawful custody they don’t
normally give proper
thought to where they will
go. Their whole idea is to
get out. However, it is not
uncommon to find that there
may be those who have a
well laid out, well thought

out plan once on the outside
of the facility.

“That being the case, we
have taken steps to make
sure that we have put in
strategies so that, if these
persons attempt to leave the
island or jurisdiction via any
exit route, we will be able to
apprehend them,” he said.

Four inmates escaped
from Her Majesty’s Prison
early Tuesday morning.
Convicted murderer Neil
Brown was killed in the
attempt, and two others —
convicted rapist Barry Par-
coi and convicted murderer
Forrester Bowe — were cap-
tured almost immediately.

A prison officer, Corpo-
ral Deon Bowles, was
stabbed to death during the
escape and officers Kenneth
Sweeting and David Arm-
brister were both injured
during the melee.

Mr Hanna assured the
public that it is “only a mat-

ter of time” until Hepburn is ©

back in custody.

“We got calls saying there
were sightings in some Fam-
ily Islands, but we have
alerted all our officers in the
country that we want this

. person; that he is a felon on

the loose. So we take noth-
ing for granted. But I want
to assure the public that we
have considered all of those

concerns that they may
have.

“If the public has any
additional information, we
want them to feel free to
bring it forward to us. Some-
times we cannot divulge to
the public the progress that
we are making in an investi-
gation, but the public can be
assured that the investiga-
tion is going extremely
well,” he said.

e Last night, a Tribune
source said Hepburn had
been seen in Bain Town, on
Augusta Street, in the Poin-
ciana Drive area. The sight-
ing took place at about 6am
on Wednesday, a day after
the jailbreak.

The source expressed sur-
prise that no church or com-
munity leaders had appealed
to Hepburn to give himself
up. “I have heard that he
wants to turn himself in, but
that he is afraid of being
killed by police, ” said the
source.

Online registration introduced for companies

AS part of the government’s bid to
promote e-commerce in the Bahamas,
the Registrar General’s Department
has announced the introduction of
online registration for companies.

The move is significant, according to
Financial Services and Investments
Minister Allyson Maynard-Gibson,
because the department “is a pivotal
and vital agency to the proper func-
tioning of the financial services and the
country at large.”

“All of the services at.the depart-
ment are now available online. We
expect the WIPO solution to our intel-
lectual property section to commence

in parliament the amendments to leg-

“This will mean that companies
incorporated under the Companies Act
can be incorporated online,” Mrs May-
nard-Gibson explained.

She went on to foreshadow several .

other initiatives aimed at improving effi-
ciency in the Registrar General’s
Department, including a plan to create a
“real-time” electronic payment system.

_ ‘Partnerships
needed’ to
| prevent abuse
of children



# By TIFFANY GRANT

Tribune Staff Reporter

MORE community partnerships are

needed to promote the message that
: child abuse should not be tolerated.

Agnes Mckenzie, chief welfare offi-

: cer for the children and family services
: division of the Department of Social Ser-
: vices, yesterday called on members of
: the public to join her mission to decrease
: the high level of child abuse in the
i Bahamas.

“We do need to move forward — even

: more so with establishing partnerships
: with groups in the community; with
: churches and non-government organi-
i sations. This needs to be done so that
i they themselves can take thé message
: that child abuse, even one, should not be
i tolerated.

Mrs Mckenzie pointed out that

: churches could begin to help by offering
i parenting programmes like the one
i presently offered through the Depart-
: ment of Rehabilitative Welfare Services.

So far this year, the Department of

Social Services has received reports of 15
: cases of-alleged child abuse.

Last year, the problem received a great

: deal of attention. In the first half of 2005,
: 309 cases of child abuse were reported in
: the Bahamas.

“In terms of the numbers that are

i reported, we say that it is a tip of the ice-

; i berg. A lot of people know of situa-
ee aan and cone erane : tions, but don’t report it. Again, this is
: where the community can have a part,”

The minister was speaking yesterday : pores
at a two-day retreat for the Bahamas ; Mrs Mckenzie said.

She added that in her view, many

‘} instances of child abuse could be avoid-
She noted that several offshore banks t edif community members were willing to

an mae i get to know each other and learn to work
recognising that it as an indispensable ! with together to tackle the problem. *

THE TRIBUNE







SO WHY SHOULD THESE KILLERS
LIVE OFF THE REST OF SOCIETY?

CAPITAL punishment needs to be to enforced in the Bahamas
once again.

We have wasted far too much time in English courts arguing
what is obviously stated in the constitution — that someone whg
takes the life of another must be executed by law.

Yet, I wonder, why aren’t the death warrants of these social
menaces not being read?

This week, I write this column heavy-hearted as a dear friend of
mine was killed in a gruesome manner.

Christoph Brown, affectionately known to friends and family as
‘Chris’, was killed in a manner that can only be comparable to the
putting down of a rabies-infested dog.

As I sit and reflect on our times together, I recall a true gen-
tleman, a kindred spirit, a man of few words but an unforgettable
presence. m

It is heart-wrenching as I reminisce and almost hear the light-
hearted laugh of one of the best, brightest young minds this coun
try had to offer.

I was introduced to Chris nine years ago by my brother-itt
law, Harry, and we immediately hit it off. I found. Chris to be a
down-to-earth chap, who was never unwilling to help his friends
when he was called upon. ”

Many persons make saints of people after their deaths, but
Chris was genuinely a unique friend, a brother. On Monday, asif
listened to my sister cry as I told Harry the grisly details sure
rounding Chris’ disappearance and discovery, as relayed to me by
my colleagues at The Tribune, what stands outs prominently in my
mnind is hearing him question “Why, why would someone want ts
kill Chris, he never had any enemies?” - '

For some years, Chris drove a taxi as a hobby, complementing
his work as the then credit and accounts manager at John S
George, Palmdale.

When I enrolled in college, there were many occasions wha
Chris and I ran into each other on campus, as he was taking
evening courses at COB in fulfilment of a bachelor’s degree.
About two years ago, Chris graduated COB and went on to}
become a certified public accountant. ee

Chris was a basketball fan and basketball player. I fondly,
remember playing on the same two-man team with him in a chal
lenge with my brother-in-law and a friend.

If ever Chris could help, whether it was by providing a ride or;
helping financially, he was there. If you ever met Chris, youl
would walk away impressed by his kindred spirit.

Adding to the tragedy of Chris’ death this week was the murder
of prison officer Corporal Deon Bowles at the hands of convict-
ed criminals, two of whom were murderers.

To hear the story of a young, bright officer cut downi in his prime,
is frightening, as we are now seeing the horrid state that our sock,
ety is slipping into. i

Now, more than ever, I lobby for hanging in the Bahamas to. be
resumed. eM

We walk around and boast that we are a Christian nation, but
really, how Christian are we? Is it just when it doesn’t affect our
political careers, is it just when it doesn’t make us the brunt of crit-
icism? |

As.a Christian nation, shouldn’t we know that the Bible says that
if a man should take another man’s life, he should pay with hi
own?!

[have the utmost respect for Deputy Prime Minister Cynthia
‘Mother’, Pratt, who outrightly stated her support of the death
penalty in further alleviating our society of murderers and hard
ened criminals.

Persons such as Barry Parcoi, who has escaped prison and
inflicted harm upon people on several occasions, should not, he
allowed to live gleefully off taxpayers each year for the rest of their
God-forsaken lives.

What does it profit law-abiding Bahamians to pay for these crim-
inal-minded individuals to eat three meals each day, watch cable
TV, live freely and enjoy woodwork and other accommodating
aspects of prison life that are now being adapted from the US?:

Does the Bahamian public know that more than $10,000 of its
tax monies are spent on maintaining each of these convicts per
year?

This fact disgusts me!

To the families of both Christoph and Mr Bowles, I encourage
you to be strong and steadfast. We have again lost two of the best
at the hands of ruthless nuisances who refuse to take a positive,
meaningful place in society.

Chris, may your soul rest in peace, my brother. You will always
hold a special place in my heart and mind. Your impact upon my
life is unforgettable.

a SALVATION Army Advisory Board member Felix Stubbs, left, presents second-place
certificate to Shane Albury during the bell-ringers appreciation lunch on January 18. Albury is
president of Alpha Phi Alpha fraternity, which raised more than $2,800 during the kettle drive —
an amount topped only by the veteran bell-ringers of the Rotary Club of East Nassau.

Salvation Army brings aid
to more than 3,700 people

A RECORD outpouring of
generosity during the annual
Christmas Kettle Drive helped
the Salvation Army provide
for more than 3,700 people this
year, serving hope and help
along with goods and gifts to
hospital patients, needy chil-
_dren, shut-ins and others hard-
ship found and fortune forgot.

“The response this year was
great; it was fantastic, over-
whelming," said Major Lester
Ferguson, Divisional Com-
mander of the Salvation Army.

Ferguson was addressing
representatives on Wednesday
from some 20 civic organisa-
tions invited to the bell-ringers
appreciation lunch at the
Army's headquarters on
Mackey Street, to learn which
club took top honours for most
funds raised - an annual com-
petition that adds spirit and
drive to the kettle campaign.

"We raised just over
$76,000, the highest amount
ever. And of that, more than
$25,000 was raised by clubs
alone,” Ferguson said.

The previous record for
most funds raised was $57,000.

Donations helped the Sal-

vation Army touch the lives of
thousands of Bahamians, pur-
chasing pens, notebooks and
books for schoolchildren, hot
meals for the hungry or home-
less, food packages, toiletries
and other supplies.

Much of what was donated
went to those hard hit by the
hurricanes of 2004 and 2005.

' "We purchased toiletry gift
packs for hospitals and other
institutions that were distrib- -
uted to 1,400 people," said |
Major Ferguson.

"We used a small portion of
the funds for our Christmas
Cheer programme which fed
over 400 people. We also pro-
vided 425 children with edu-
cational supplies and toys, pur-
chased $33,000 worth of food
supplies for needy families and
were able to give 980 food
vouchers.

“People don't realise that
the few pennies put into our
kettles add up in such a large
way," said Major Ferguson.
“We were met with over- -
whelming support from the
public and we wish to take this
opportunity to thank them for
their contribution."

Reverend Sam Boodle, a
bell-ringer for the Rotary Club
of Nassau, said collecting for
the Salvation Army did not
take a lot of arm-twisting.

"Someone told me the only
organisation he knows that can
take a dollar and get $5 out of
it is the Salvation Army," Rev
Boodle told the crowd of vol-
unteers gathered for the
(donated) luncheon. "The
needy will always be with us.
Those who have more should
give to those who have less."

Advisory board chairman
Judy VC Munroe read off the
names of the winning clubs.

Winning the coveted Bell
Ringer Award plaque was the
Rotary Club of East Nassau
which collected $2,961. Alpha
Phi Alpha fraternity was sec-
ond, only a few dollars short of
the winner with a total collec-
tion of $2,839. Third place
went to the Rotary Club of
West

Nassau with $2,426, while
Rotary Club of Nassau placed
third runner-up with $2,282
and the Zonta Club of Nassau
came in fifth with just under
$2,000.

COB hono
retired bis

ATTORNEY General
and Minister of Education
Alfred Sears said retired
Anglican Bishop Michael
Hartley Eldon’s is synony-
mous with “scholarship and
excellence, patriotism and
service, integrity and
warmth”.

Minster Sears’ remarks
were made on Thursday at
the official naming of the
College of the Bahamas
(COB) Thompson Boule-
vard Complex in honour of
Bishop Eldon, who is also
council chairman Emeritus
of COB.

“The College has chosen
the name of a person who
knows the value of educa-
tion and who believes in the
preservation of the Bahami-
an heritage,” Mr Sears said.

He added that the college
has chosen a man who ded-
icated his life to rendering
unselfish service to the people
of the Bahamas, and who has
earned the honour through his
many acts of service.

“We are esteeming this great
son of the Bahamas by entrust-
ing his legacy as a blueprint for
the role this facility is to have in
the advancement of the College
and ultimately University of the
Bahamas.”

Dr Keva Bethel, president
Emeritus of the College of the
Bahamas and sister of Bishop
Eldon, said she was “sad” that
her brother was unable to be
present to “experience this
moment in person and to thank
the college.”

She added that Bishop
Eldon’s involvement in the ear-
ly development of the college
was an important part of his
ministry.

“He viewed his service to the
college as integral component
of his personal contribution to
the full development of the spir-

itual, intellectual and material of ~

a newly independent Bahami-
an people,” Dr Bethel said.

She noted that during his
travels throughout the
Bahamas, her brother came to
know the potential and the aspi-
rations of the Bahamian peo-
ple, and recognised how the
opportunities provided by the
college could enable dreams to
be fulfilled.

“The establishment of the
College of the Bahamas, com-
prehensive in scope, and inclu-
sive in reach, is critical to help
Bahamians develop necessary
skills and knowledge, and not
least of all, character to stand
with pride among their peers,”
said Dr Bethel.

The Michael Eldon Complex

an company, for $3.2 million.

Elliston Rahming is urged to
stand down by former inmate

FROM page one

He said that prisons are man-
aged by persons with a broad
range of knowledge and it was
not uncommon for a prison to
be managed by a criminologist.

Commenting on the Prison
Reform Commission’s report
on the state of HMP, which at
the time was chaired by Dr
Rahming, Mr Culmer said that
the report “belittled his char-
acter” and was devoid of any
recommendations he made to
the commission.

“The only thing made in the
report about me was criticism.
Number one was that I man-
aged the prison poorly. I can
only do my best with the mate-
rial and staff that I have and
once I didn’t get it I couldn’t
do anything,” Mr Culmer said.

However, Dr Rahming said
that Mr Culmer was consulted
during the commission’s fact-
finding exercise. “One of the
first persons the commission
spoke to in great detail was
Edwin Culmer,” he said.

Dr Rahming also said that
wheels are in motion for secu-
rity issues at the prison to be
improved.

“Last August, 50 new recruits
graduated as prison officers. That
was the largest contingent in the
history of HMP. We’ve just fin-
ished interviewing another 290
persons as potential prison offi-
cers and government has agreed
to bring on 75 of them. I think
there is a commitment. -

“If you take the primary wall
for instance. There has been
some agitation for a long period
for the fortification of that.

“The minister has indicated

that the money is now available.
We have requested the funds
for that formally and I expect
that by early next week. The
money will come in incremen-
tally so that we may provide the
kind of fortification that is nec-
essary,” he said.

The superintendent said the
prison is “big enough and man
enough” to conduct an investi-
gation into the escape and that
a report will be shared with the
public when it’s done.

“The police force is conduct-
ing its investigation, we are con-
ducting our investigation and
this investigation will lead to a
report that will be shared with
the public,” Dr Rahming said.

At a press conference follow-

ing the break-out of four
inmates, in which prison guard
Corporal Deon Bowles was
stabbed to death, Dr Rahming
said there were numerous
escapes under his predecessors
— including, he said, 24 under
the watch of Mr Culmer.

Dr Rahming pointed out that
Corey Hepburn, one of those
who escaped on Monday and
who up until press time last
night was still at large, previ-
ously escaped while Mr Culmer
was in charge of the prison.

Mr Culmer denied. that 24
persons escaped under his
watch and said that Dr Rah-
ming was being dishonest.

Dr Rahming said he was try- _

ing to prove the point that by
their very nature prisons are
places where people ny to
escape.

“Prisoners are no respecters
of superintendents. They
escaped under Mr Major, they
escaped under Mr Culmer and
it’s the same thing that is hap-
pening now. So when Mr Cul-
mer begins to pontificate, the
fact is under his watch some 24
inmates escaped,” he said.

“Mr Culmer once again denied
this claim.

DNA evidence in Miller murder case

FROM page one

said the analyst, is one in 170
billion.

The odds of selecting another
individual to fit the suspect's
DNA profile is one in 11,000,
said another DNA expert.

Petros Tsingelis, technical
leader of Broward County's
DNA unit, said on April 11,
2005, he analysed the results
provided by Ms Schurman. He
used Ms Schurman's results to
enter numbers into a special
computer database to obtain a
statistical evaluation. His work
was specifically on itein four,
the only item which contained
the blood of Lee, according to
the experts.

His findings were that the
chances of finding a specific
individual with the same DNA
profile is one in 11,000, com-
pared to the Bahamian popu-
lation database.

Between Ms Schurman and
Mr Tsingelis, the custody officer
handling the information was

Gladys Pena, who also testified
during the trial before Senior
Justice Anita Allen.

Ms Schurman travelled from
Alaska to give evidence in the
trial, while the other two DNA
officers still work in the DNA
Lab in the crime division of
Broward County's sheriff's
office.

Meanwhile, chief prosecutor
Bernard Turner established a
chain of command between the
Bahamian officers who handled
the evidence before it was
shipped abroad.

Sergeant Howard Bethel col-
lected samples from the body
of Mario Miller from the
morgue at Princess Margaret
Hospital.

Corporal 1777 Phyllis Smith,
attached to the forensics science
lab as an exhibit officer, testified
that on June 23, 2002, she
received a tissue, a pair of den-
im trousers, and 14 swabs. She
also received three glass tubes
of blood from Corporal 2179
Stubbs, which were said to

belong to Lee.

She handed the pieces of evi-
dence over to Corporal
Rochelle Deleveaux, who said
she additionally received eight
pieces of carpet, three pieces
of upholstery, two pieces of
duct tape, and 13 pieces of
vinyl.

Detective Constable 2458
Brown gave her a multi-
coloured shirt, a white T-shirt,
fingernail clippings, and debris
from the body.

When cross-examined by
attorney Murrio Duciile, Tama-
ra Taylor,-and Philip Hilton, she
testified that she did the prepa-
ration work for the evidence,
but did not conduct any analy-
sis.

Mr Turner was assisted by
attorneys Neil Brathwaite and
Calvin Seymour.

Minister Miller and his fami-
ly were present in court for yes-
terday’s proceedings.

The trial, with a jury of nine
women and three men, is set to
continue on Monday.

for university status

@ By BRENT STUBBS
Senior Sports Reporter

THE College of the Bahamas is preparing its
move to university status and Greg Harshaw is
making sure that the athletic department does
not get left behind.

On Monday, Harshaw and the college’s Lady
Caribs basketball team returned from a success-
ful trip to the US Virgin Islands, where they went
undefeated in the two games they played.

Back home, Harshaw said while the trip was the
first of a NCAA nature, it certainly will not be the -
last for the Caribs athletic team this year.

“The trip served two purposes,” Harshaw said.
“One, I felt we in the Bahamas had to take the
first step in the introduction of a Caribbean
League, so that was why we took that first step
and went to the Virgin Islands.

“Secondly, I wanted to expose our student ath-
letes here to NCAA competition, so I felt going to
the Virgin Islands could knock out two birds in
one stone. That was the reason behind the trip. I
thought it was very successful.”

Prior to going to the Virgin Islands, Harshaw
said he participated in the NCAA Convention
in Indianapolis, Indiana where he met with five
universities from Puerto Rico with a view of get-
ting them on board the Caribbean League.

“Now that we have this interest, we’re moving
on to the next step, which is how to put it togeth-
er,” he stated.

Because it will not be feasible economically to
travel as often as they should, Harshaw said their
plans include competing against each country at

least once or twice a year on a home or away
basis — not just in basketball, but in volleyball
and soccer.

“We're at the beginning steps, something that
we will have to work out with the other schools in
the Caribbean,” he further noted.

Having to start from scratch to bring the COB’s
athletic programme up to stream with limited
facilities, Harshaw said the Lady Caribs’ basketball
team was the only organisation in full operation
and so they got the first preference to travel.

But in the meantime as he continue to work on
the upgrade of facilities, Harshaw said he have
another task of trying to point out what the
NCAA and inter-collegiate competition is all
about.

“One of the important things about what we are
trying to do is to encourage the Bahamian stu-
dent-athletes to stay on the island and two, it
gives us an opportunity to be represented at the
collegiate level.”

As a part of the ongoing development pro-
gramme, Harshaw said they are first trying to
produce vibrant clubs that they intend to turn in
collegiate teams.

Joining the men and women basketball teams
are the men and women soccer teams, the men’s
tennis team and the track and field team. But
Harshaw said he’s keenly interested in producing
their men and women volleyball teams.

“Our next step is to build a gym,” said Har-
shaw, who indicated that it is one of the main
areas that is hindering the growth and develop-
ment of the programme right now.

“For us to become a part of the parent organ-
isation like the NCAA or NAIA, we have to

have the facilities,” he said. “We can’t take that
next step until we have those things in place.”

Unlike the other Caribbean countries, Har-
shaw said the Bahamas seemed to be the only one
that is behind in its own facilities.

He noted that when they travellled to the Vir-
gin Islands, they played in a $13 million gymna-
sium that was provided by the university they
played against.

“Now that they have that gym, (NBA’s) San
Antonio (Spurs) come down and practise dur-
ing the off-season,” Harshaw said. “They host
what they call Paradise Jam every fall where they
host D1 schools with men and women coming
there.

“The schools we are dealing with in Puerto
Rico have five NCAA members already. So they
already have those facilities. But I haven’t con-

tacted Jamaica and the other countries that we
hope to get involved in this NCAA league.”

Once the league is implemented, Harshaw said
one of the benefits will be the fact that the win-
ning team from the Caribbean would get an auto-
matic bid into the NCAA tournaments in the
sports that they play in.

“To me, that would be exciting,” he said.

“That’s what the Puerto Rican schools realise:

and that is what the UVI school realises. If we can
create that Caribbean league, we can earn that

automatic qualifying bid to play in the NCAA big.

dance.

“So I’m sure a lot of the student athletes and
parents would prefer to stay home. So what we
are trying to do as a programme is to give them
that opportunity.”

As a fundraiser to assist COB’s athletic depart-

iment, Harshaw has been working closely with:
‘Ricardo Richardson, the Bahamian chief execu-
itive officer of the American Basketball Associa-
‘tion, to bring a team here to compete in an exhi:
bition game.

From March.24-26, COB will be hosting the
BTVI Tertiary Basketball Tournament in Grand
Bahama. Assistant athletic director, Sean ‘Bass’
Bastian said they intend to host a team from
Florida and Kentucky.

“We’re looking for those two ABA teams com-
ing down for this tournament and we hope that in
the future is that we can have them come to New
Providence,” Bastian said.

“But the problem is trying to get the use of
the Kendal Isaacs Gymnasium with a date where
we can have that event ‘hosted there.”

However, before that, Bastian said COB will
host the annual Dr. Keva Bethel Basketball Clas-
sic, but unlike the past, this year’s tournament
next month will only cater to the tertiary schools.

Success Training College, BTVI and COB both
here in New Providence and the Grand Bahama’
campus will be participating.

Bernard Thompson, a former NBA and Euro-
pean player/coach, will be the special guest for the
tournament. '

“This is a different type of spin that we are
doing with the Dr Keva Bethel. In the past, we
invited the local teams and high schools,” Bastian
stressed. “But this year, we are focusing on the
tertiary schools,”

While here, Harshaw said Thompson will also
be scouting the local talent to see whether or not
a team can be assembled from the Bahamas to
play in the European League in the fall.

Rupert’
Legend
triumphs
at regatta

THE 2006 New Years Regat-
ta, dedicated to Mack Elijah
Knowles, was held on Sunday
January 15, 2006.

It was meant to be a two day
event, in which C class vessels
would race on Saturday and A
class vessels on Sunday, but due
to high winds, Saturday’s events
were cancelled.

Five C class vessels were
scheduled to sail, including Sac-
rifice, The Vitamalt Thunder-
bird, Lady Ruthnel, Barbarian,
and Lady T.

Organisers said the C class
race will take place in Long
Island during the Long Island
Regatta, and the B class leg will
sail at a later date in Nassau.

The boats that participated
in the A class were the Earl’s,
Rupert’s Legend, Thunderbird,
and New Courageous.

Said the organisers in a press
release: “Sunday’s event includ-
ed three races and they all went
very well without any hitches.
The first race was won by the
Rupert’s Legend, who led from
start to finish, followed by the
Thunderbird and the New
Courageous.

tide during the three races so it
was a great challenge to be sure
not to go aground.

“The second race was well
done as well and was again won
by the Rupert’s Legend fol-
lowed by the Thunderbird and
the New Courageous.

“The third race was once
again won by the Rupert’s leg-
end. Coming in second was the
New Courageous followed by
the Thunderbird. The races
were very competitive and very
well done.”

The organisers said they were

honoured to have visitors from
the US and Canada participate
in the A class races, sailing as
part of the, crew of Thunder-
bird. #
The National Champion of
the 2006 New Years Regatta
was Rupert’s Legend, captained
by Mark Knowles.
