Dion Bowles
returned to
block seconds
before breakout

‘@ By NATARIO
‘MCKENZIE

PRISON surveillance footage
shows that officer Dion Bowles
stopped at two particular pris-

~ ons cells and made what may
have been an exchange with an
inmate during his inspection just
seconds before the January 17
prison break occurred.

Little was shown on the pris-
on's surveillance video that was
submitted to the Coroners court
yesterday as to how officer
Bowles was killed. What has
been made confirmed is that
officer Bowles, although accom-
panied by another officer during
an inspection at 10.30 on the
night of January 16, was alone
when he returned at 4.10 on the
morning of January 17.

The video recording of a cam-
era positioned in cell block C of.
the prison shows that officer
Dion Bowles returned to the
block at 4.10 am on January 17
and made what appeared to be
particular stops at two prison
cells which were further away
from the immediate scope of
the surveillance camera. The
footage shows that as officer
Bowles approached one of the
cells, the one which appeared
to have been to his right, the
inmate in that cell stretched out
his arm. Bowles appeared to
stop at that cell only momen-
tarily then turned to walk across
to the opposite cell where he

stood for a few seconds
although it could not be seen
what he did at that time. When
he turned back to the first*cell;
he hesitated briefly and then as
he walked up.the corridor,
towards the camera, he appar-
ently handed something to the
inmate whose hand was still
outstretched, At approximately
4,11 am the lights went out and
seconds later two persons could
be seen scampering across the
corridor. One of the persons
had on what appeared to be
shorts, socks and tennis shoes,
while the other appeared to
have on longer trousers. At that
point the footage became par-

- ticularly dark. The video was

already.in black and white and
the images could only be seen
from the waist down. from that
point on. Those. two persons
appeared to go to another cell
and seconds later, a third indi-
vidual, wearing long trousers,
also appeared. All thrée. indi-

viduals ran out of the view of

the camera.
The video was forwarded to
4.25 am, which is when it

appeared that four prison offi- .

cers came onto cell block C and

apparently discovered officer’
~Bowles' body. One of the offi-
cers had a flashlight and the.

others appeared to lift Bowles
out of the cell block.

FREEPORT - A recent break-in at the Jack
Hayward High School could have resulted in a
nationwide recall of national exams and an addi-
tional $2 million in cost to the government this
week, according to Ministry. of Education offi-
cials.

Lionel Sands, assistant director: of education
with the Testing and Evaluation in New Provi-
dence, was sent to Freeport on Wednesday after
being informed by education officials in Freeport ©
of a break-in at the school,

“We don’t know how the break-in occurred or
who is responsible,” said Mr Sands. “Our main
concern is to ensure that the examination itself was .
not impacted negatively.”

Just under 6,000 students throughout the coun-
try are preparing to sit the BJC and BGCSE
exams, which begins on Friday,

GOVERNMENT is using the

Police Service Act to employ PLP =~

“cronies” at the expense. of the

safety and security of the Bahami-

Kenneth Russell claimed yester-
‘day.

During the morning session of
the House of Assembly, a Bill to
enact the Police Service Act was
debated with heated words being
exchanged between government
and the official opposition.

During one of these verbal
assaults, Mr Russell’s intelligence

questioned by Prime Minister

Perry Christie.
After Deputy Prime Minister
Cynthia Pratt introduced the Bill,

Mr Russell denounced it as mak- .

ing no real contribution other
than simply renaming the Royal
Bahamas Police Force to the
Royal Bahamas Police “Service”.
“Seeing that there are no new
policing incentives, High Rock is
truly concerned about where our
Bahamaland is headed,” said Mr
Russell. “Will we end up like oth-
er Caribbean countries where the
criminal element has taken over?
Or will good men do the right

to express their displeasure at
Government’s attempt to debate
and pass a Bill that affects officers
who were never consulted on
some of its provisions.

While members of the House

the Police Act, Executive Vice
Chairman of‘the Police Staff
Association, Inspector Bradley
Sands, and several plain clothed
officers stood outside holding a
press conference, hoping to draw
attention to the discrepancies in

“If the government wants to

AS THE next general elections
approach, the Christie government
reported its progress to nation after
four years in government....-....-

On Tuesday night, Mr Christie
moderated a PLP mini-convention
at the Wyndham Nassau Resort,
where one. by one, his ministers
gave account of what has taken
place in their respective ministries.

Mr Christie pointed out that the
convention was not a night for
boasting, but a time for them to
“pause in our journey so that we
can take stock of where we are in
the implementation of ‘Our Plan’
for a more prosperous Bahamas, a
safer Bahamas, a better Bahamas
for all of people.” ;

“As we had throughout our
campaign, we pledged to be a gov-
ernment for all Bahamians and
declared that no one need harbour
any fear. of victimisation under a
government led by Perry Christie —
so said, so done. F

“We pledged that integrity
would be the watchword of our,
administration and that we would
serve the Bahamian people hon-
estly, unselfishly and tirelessly — so
said, so done,” he said.

Mr Christie went on to point
what he said were several more
accomplishments achieved during
his time in office. These included:

e The restoration of budgetary
and fiscal discipline to the man-
agement of the nation’s finances .

° The creation of affordable
public housing.

e The laying of foundations for a a
programme of national health
insurance.

@ By KARIN HERIG
Tribune Staff Reporter

MORE than 100 employees.
of‘the Water and Sewerage
Corporation have filed a com-
plamt in protest of what they
claim was an “unfair promotion
exercise.’

Speaking on behalf of the
employees, former president of
the Bahamas Utilities Services
Allied) Workers Union
(BUSAWU) Huedley Moss,
said yesterday that the corpo-
ration has been given until Fri-
day to respond to the action
before the workers take the sit-
uation “to the next level.”

“These 100 employees have
collectively filed a class action
grievance with the WSC. This
came about as a result of an
unfair promotion exercise that
has take place at the WSC,” he
said.

Mr Moss said that employees
feel that the promotion exer-
cise, which took place in Feb-
ruary of this year, ignored the
plight of some 45 “hardwork-
ing and honest workers of the
WSC.”

“Primarily because in 2004,
the past union president of the
BUSAWU initiated a promo-
tion exercise for 80 per cent of
the WSC workforce. The idea
was to promote all members of
the non-management bargain-
ing unit. And so the (recent)
promotion should as a mini-
mum have covered the 20 per
cent not promoted previously,”
he said.

However, the former union
president said that the second
promotion exercise included
many persons who had already
been promoted in 2004.

“You have 56 persons who
received two promotions within
12:months. There are some 45
employees who did not benefit



MORE people around the
world trust the media more
than their own governments,
a new international poll has
revealed.

Although the Bahamas was
not included in the survey, per-
sons interviewed by The Tri-
bune said they believe the
same to be true of the Bahami-
an public.

A survey conducted with
10,230 participants in 10 coun-
tries for the BBG@iRéiitérs and
the US. think tank The Media
Centre, revealed that on.aver-
age, 61 per cent of people trust
the press more than govern-
ments.

Veteran journalist and for-
mer Cabinet Minister Sir
Arthur Foulkes said that
although it‘is difficult to esti-
mate what’kind of results such
a poll would generate in the
Bahamas, he believes that the
majority, of people would also
vote in ‘favour of trusting the
media above the government.

“Especially at this moment
in time I believe that Bahami-
ans would probably trust the
media more,” he said.

Attorney Fayne Thompson
agreed with this assessment.

“Bahamians are very cyni-

cal when it comes to their .

politicians. Me personally, I

and I trust them more than
what the politicians tell me.
We must not forget that what-
ever comes from the govern-
ment has been handled by
their spin doctors,” he said.

In light’ of PLP chairman
Raynard Rigby’s “cautioning”

of the press last week, Sir
Arthur said that he feels that .

the Bahamian people seem. to
better understand the impor-
tance of the media than politi-
cians do.

“As the saying goes, when

striving for the survival of ©

democracy and one ‘has the
choice between getting rid of
the government or the media,
then ‘it is always safer to dis-
pense of the government.

“I think Bahamians under-

Weyer Ve



stand very well what the role of
the media is. It is the media’s

job to report the facts. And the’

public is entitled to access to
the facts,” he said. -

Sir Arthur said he feels that
many politicians today seem
to take criticism too personal-
ly.

“When you enter into poli-

tics you should know that crit-
icism comes with the territo-
ry. It’s not something that
should be railed against. Politi-
cians should grow thicker
skins. .
“T think of all of the govern-
ing party, Mr Christie actually
understands this the best,” he
said.

Sir Arthur and Mr Thomp-
son also both agreed that the
Bahamian media should be
even more vigorous in keep-
ing the public informed about
the country’s business.

Results of the poll varied
across the range of countries
surveyed.

Trust in journalists was high-
est in Nigeria, where 88 per

cent of the people choose the °

media above the government.

In countries such as Indone-
sia and India, more than 80 per
cent said. that they trust the
media more than they do their
governments.

Recalling Mr Mitchell’s political past

IT IS OFTEN said that it depends upon
where a man sits as to where he stands. That is
particularly true of many politicians in the
Bahamas — especially those who have fre-
quently changed their party loyalties.

We are often amused at how passionately
protective some of them now are of the memo-
ry of the late Sir Lynden Pindling — there even
seems to be an attempt in certain quarters to
grant him sainthood. We have no problem with
that if that is what his followers want. The only
problem we have is the hypocrisy that goes with
it in many cases— especially among those whose
opinions bend according to their political for-
tunes.

Early on in his political career we took the
measure of Sir Lynden. Over the years, culmi-
nating with the Commission of Inquiry into
drug smuggling, he gave us no reason to change
our opinion.

This week Fred Mitchell’s former website,
in its Comment of the Week, wants Tribune
managing editor John Marquis’ work permit
cancelled because “he has defamed the found-
ing father of the country Lynden Pindling call-
ing him a petty crook.” This is not true of
course. Mr Marquis has never called Sir Lynden
a “petty crook.” Over the years we have heard
members and former members of Sir Lynden’s
own PLP make such remarks, but never Mr
Marquis, neither privately nor in print.

Maybe,-. the writer. of “Comment of the
week” as he is writing from Mr Mitchell’s for-
mer web site, would like to give an opinion on
Mr Mitchell’s dismissal of Sir Lynden as the
“head slickster of the PLP at his slick best”.
We would also like that writer, as he did in the
case of Mr Marquis, tell us what should have
been done about Mr Mitchell at that time.

. Remember both of them were exercising their
democratic right of free speech — or is it to be

suggested that when a foreigner is employed ~

in this country he must compromise one of his
essential freedoms, while a Bahamian’s remains
intact?

Mr Mitchell, who started his political career
in the PLP, became disenchanted and left that
party to form the PDF. During those years he
was scathing of Sir Lynden.

In September, 1991 he was particularly upset
with the legislation introduced by the PLP to,
according to Mr Mitchell, “limit free speech.”

The legislation was introduced to curb
Bahamians’ political activities in the 1992 elec-
tion.

Mr Mitchell was particularly annoyed by a
provision that would limit a person’s right to
heckle at meetings, and which would compel

persons, identified by the meeting chairman as
trouble makers, to give their names to the police
or face arrest.

“It is strange that the PLP now seeks to lim-
it the very activities which they used as an oppo-
sition party, and make them illegal. No person
in opposition should support or respect these
provisions,” he said.

In the early days of the PLP their “goon
squads” were so out of control that people were
injured, some ending up in hospital during an
election campaign. It was only when these same
tactics were turned on-them that the PLP tried
to protect themselves by legislation. This was the
legislation, to which Mr Mitchell quite rightly
objected.

He reserved his greatest scorn for the pro-
posed Broadcast Council. “This is Pindling’s
trickery at its best,” he said.

This Council was to oversee the work of
ZNS as it related to news coverage at the station
and to the broadcast rules.

“The official Opposition should not partici-
pate in or support this total charade. It is a trap
designed to get them to participate in the biased
coverage of politicians which is evidenced on
ZNS during and before elections,” he said. Mr
Mitchell knew whereof he spoke, because he
was a part of the ZNS team for many of Sir
Lynden’s elections.

He then sneered at the PLP backbenchers’
révolt — “out of some misplaced sense af
nationalism,” he said — at not wanting Com-

monwealth observers here for the 1992 elec-

tion.

“Their view,” Mr Mitchell said, “was that
they did not want foreigners coming and look-
ing at Bahamian democracy. This is nationalis-
tic nonsense,” he said. “If you have nothing to
hide, then you should have no objection to any-
one coming and having a look at your electoral
process.’

So why should Mr Marquis, who was just
reporting the opinions of Bahamians about their
parliamentarians, be driven from the country?
We can assure the PLP that his pen would be
more vitriolic from abroad. He knows this coun-
try and its chief actors well.

Today Mr Mitchell is not only PLP, but he is

‘a member of the PLP government’s Cabinet.

Today, he sees the Bahamas from a different
position than he did in 1991 and so his stand on
various subjects has changed.

That is why most Bahamians don’t take
politicians seriously. They have to look out of
‘4e window when they get up in the morning to
see which way the wind is blowing to know how
some of their politicians’ windmills are tilted.

imported). On all fronts of our
development we have allowed
the wrong people to seize pow-
er and claim this-as God’s holy
work but as the bible says: “By.
their fruits ye shall know them.”

The politicians. have reward-
ed mediocrity, and political loy-
alty and at the same time
ostracised any talent that was
not in awe of them. One need

only look at the appointment

to the boards of this country to
see the same recycled faces
whom no one elected to power.
The political atmosphere has
created an insatiable thirst for
mammon, corruption is every-
where. Is this country really bet-
ter off than it was five or 10 or
even 30 years ago?

We have elected into power
people with no vision for the
future of this nation. We are
now again poised to elect anoth-
er government to run this coun-
try for the next five years. If we
are left only to decide between
the PLP and FNM, then we’d
have no real choices. There is
no leader among them with a
vision or plan they actually
intend to carry out. They are
only interested in holding pow-
er, collecting perks and passing
on the responsibility of govern-
ing with one excuse after the
other. If Bahamians really think

about the future of this coun- —

try they could not possibly
endorse either of these parties.
Yes, they will promise you the
sky before the election and
before the celebration dust is
settled the voters will be back to
their sorry lives complaining
about the same old issues of ille-
gal immigration, crime, poor
education results. Nothing

would have changed. The victor:

would have got what he wanted,
licences to waste the public
purse for five more years unin-
terrupted and the loser defeated
and demotivated to fight on —
because it was never about the
issues only about winning to
control the purse and power.
Are we truly happy with the
direction this country seems
headed in? Do you believe that

‘In defence of:

AFTER reading the article “Young Man’s View” by Adfian
Gibson.in your April 28th edition, I felt compelled to respond. I am
an alumnus of The College of The Bahamas (COB), having grad-
uated in 1987. I would wish to state emphatically that this young
man and.all COB alumni should feel proud of their COB degree.

I surely.am.

it

During my tenure at the College of the: Bahanias! we e too were
beset by controversy and I remember quite vividly the chant,
“Roker playing poker with our future” and the march’to Bay
Street headed by then COBUS president Ian Strachan, now Drilan
Strachan, a lecturer at the College of The Bahamas. This brouha-
ha was brought about after a few of the lecturers and in particular,
Ms Belgrave, were given 24 hours in which to leave the country. In
fact, it was noised abroad on the campus that immigration officials
had entered the classroom in the middle of the lecture. This, of

_course, added more fuel to an already burning fire.

Therefore, Mr Gibson, xenophobia is not new to The, College of
The Bahamas nor is it a lost fixture in our society. ‘ ite

I would urge Mr Gibson to step proudly when the time comes to
accept his degree and to toss his tassel from one side.of his;mor-
tarboard to the next signifying his completion of a level of acade-
mic attainment that can rival most tertiary institutions worldyide.

The events or perceived events at the College of The Bahamas
are just the noise in the market, your degree is the price of the fish
and truth be told, the value of your degree borne out of your GOB

experience is priceless!

In brief

Goverment
looks into

ending hire
moratorium

GOVERNMENT is looking
. into removing the moratorium
on hiring in the public service.

Foreign Affairs and Public
Service Minister Fred Mitchell
said that it may be possible to
create some 1,200 public ser-
vice jobs within the next year.

“The idea will be that those
people who do not have the
basic qualifications, which is the
minimum of five BJCs, will be
able to come onto the service,
receive training with an agree-
ment to upgrade their training,
so that they can be promoted
in the service and not use the
lack of qualifications against
them — that’s what the PLP
plans to do,” said Mr Mitchell.

In an interview with The Tri-
bune, Mr Mitchell said he is
presently holding meetings with
the Ministry of Finance to go
‘over next year’s budget.

He said if the resources per-
mit, the lifting of the moratori-
um will come into effect on July
1.

Roberts predicts to

earn $300 million this year



Hi BRADLEY Roberts



By RUPERT MISSICK Jr
Chief Reporter

THE Bahamas Telecom-
munications Company will
earn $300 million in revenues
this year for the first time in
history, Works and Utilities
Minister Bradley told dele-
gates at the PLP “mini con-
vention” on Tuesday night.

The corporation’s profits, he
said are steadily rising under
the watch of his government.

BTC net profit for the year
ended December 31, 2005,
totaled.$ 34,533,000 compared
to $8,340,000 in 2004.

This he said, was notwith-
standing the major revenue
loss as a result of the unwel-
come use of voice-over Inter-
net protocol schemes.

VoIP, is a technology that
allows you to make telephone
calls using a broadband Inter-
‘net connection instead of a
regular phone line.

capital punishment is lawful
in the Bahamas,” she told par-
ty supporters. :

She also emphasised the
new Swift Justice initiative,
which is geared towards the
prompt capture and punish-
ment of criminals.

Last month, Mrs Maynard-
Gibson launched a pilot pro-

‘gramme for the initiative, as a

first step in her mission to
improve the efficiency ofthe
slow justice system.

The initiative was also
designed to strengthen trans-
parency and accountability,

_she had said.
_. As aresult of the pilot pro-
gramme, it was determined

that weekly meetings should
be held to ensure that forensic
witnesses are properly
briefed, notified and in place
to give their evidence at the
appropriate time.

The minister said at the
time that these meetings will
also allow for co-ordination
and planning well in advance
of trials.

During her convention
speech, Mrs Maynard-Gibson
said: “All of the stakeholders
are on board. The police are

going to turn up and the evi-

receiving leases for crown land
to be sped up.

companies like Vonage which
offers a flat rate for calls to the
US or Canada.

Bahamians have turned to
these services in many
instances because of what they
view as BTC’s high long dis-
tance rates.

However, Mr Roberts point-
ed out that since he has
become the minister responsi-
ble for BTC, the government
has reduced international long
distance rates by up to 70 per
cent and has reduced domestic
long distance rates by up to 55
per cent.

“We now pay interest on
security deposits at BTC and
BEC for the first time in the
history of these government
corporations. May I also add
that for the first time in the
history of BEC, the PLP gov-

ernment reduced the basic

rates on electricity across the
board between 10 per cent and
17 per cent and it is my under-
standing that more reductions



ate to come,” the minister said.

BTC, Mr Roberts said, is in
the process of connecting all
the major islands of the
Bahamas with $66 million
worth of fiber optic cables.

Government has also
installed cellular services in
Grand Cay, Moorse Island and
Harbour Island for the first
time.

More than $35 million, Mr
Roberts said, was spent.to
deploy GSM cellular services
in New Providence and Grand
Bahama..

He said that an additional
$14 million is being spent in
Abaco, $1 million in Bimini
and $6 million in Exuma.

It is expected that $30 mil-
lion more will be spent to com-
plete work in the Faumly
Islands.

“In addition, BTC last year
paid out more than $15 mil-
lion in commissions to resellers
of GSM and TDMA prepaid
cards,” Mr Roberts said.

NEW legislation will trans-
form the Bahamian police force
—which is steeped in strong colo-
nial paramilitary tradition — into
a modern, service-oriented police
department, Deputy Prime Min-
ister Cynthia Pratt told the
House of Assembly yesterday.

Mrs Pratt said the proposed
Police Service Act would
improve the openness, trans-
parency and accountability of
the police department — to
enable it to better discharge its
mandate.

Also included are improved
terms of service for police offi-
cers, including benefits in the
event of an officer being injured
or killed in the line of duty.

In addition, section three of
the draft Bill seeks to change
the name of the Royal Bahamas
Police, Force to the Royal
Bahamas Police Service.

“The name change is more
than symbolic. It embodies the
fundamental cultural shift of the
organisation’s objective to pro-
vide a service to the Bahamian
people without invocation of
fear, of force or authority,” the
deputy prime minister said.

The proposed law also pro-
vides for the appointment of an
external inspector to be paid
with public funds, whose func-
tion will be to report to the min-
ister on the efficiency and effec-
tiveness of the management of
the service.

“This is a novel provision. It
provides the minister with statu-
tory authority to seek a non-
police inspection of a matter
affecting the service,” Mrs Pratt
said, ,

The existing legislation that
governs the police department,
the deputy prime. minister
pointed out, was enacted in
1965 — at the tail-end of the
Bahamas’ colonial experience.

“Essentially the Act bears the
character of the norms and

mores of a colonial environ-

ment. Today is anew Bahamas
with a new Bahamian.

“They are the children of
independence — free, better
educated, better informed,
more expressive of their opin-
ions and knowledgeable of their
rights,” Mrs Pratt said.

It is therefore of great impor-
tance that the legislative frame-

work that governs the police

department ensures that it
remains relevant to today’s real-

ity,” she added.

“The new Police Service Act

recognises the changes in soci-
ety and recognises the need for
organisations to undergo reform
and change.

“To put it differently, for the
police to be effective in what
they do they must first recog-
nise that they are providing a
service to the people and to the
state. I submit that this‘is ‘a sig-
nificant departure from the phi-
losophy in the existing Act,”
Mrs Pratt said.

The process of becoming a
service-oriented institution
requires a paradigm shift in the
ethos of the institution, so that it
reflects the philosophy that
effective policing depends on
the co-operation and partner-
ship between the police and the
community. ~

“The draft legislation there-
fore sums up the philosophy
that focuses on the need to
transform the institution,
steeped in a strong paramilitary
tradition, into a modern service
oriented-police department with
highly trained, technologically-
driven, skilled and equipped

personnel called upon to take .

greater responsibility in the
management and decision mak-
ing process and personnel and
corporate ownership of the suc-

, cess of the, organisation,” Mrs....J
Pratt said. .

Dr Nottage aims for NHI legislation



to be passed sometime this summer

m@ By DENISE MAYCOCK
Tribune Freeport Reporter

FREEPORT - Minister of
Health Dr Bernard Nottage said
he intends to have legislation
enabling the National Health

' Insurance passed in parliament

sometime this summer and ready
for possible implementation by
the end of 2006.

Speaking at Bethel Baptist
Church in Eight Mile Rock yes-
terday, Mr Nottage told the Zion
United Baptist Convention that
NHI is one of the most important
social initiatives that is being
undertaken by the government.

The government is proposing to
raise $235 million, partially
through contributions from citi-
zens, to fund the cost of NHI,
which will allow legal residents in
the country access to comprehen-
sive health care services.

Fund

Contributions to the fund will
be made by employers, employ-
ees, the self-employed, pension-
ers, and the government — which
will contribute on behalf of civil
servants and the poor.

“My focus is to get feqisiation
passed through parliament after

the budget debate sometime in =

July-August.

“And my ministry intends to
have this matter at a point in
December 2006 where we would
then be able to implement it
whenever the government is ready
to do so,” he said.

Dr Nottage noted that efforts

are now underway to put together

a technical advisory group for
NHI, now that the plan’s steering

committee has completed its man-

date.

“We have now moved onto
another phase of the project,” he
explained.

Minister of Health Dr Bernard N ottage

Dr Nottage stressed that it is
important for everyone in the
Bahamas to know what NHI is
about, how it will benefit them,
and why they should support
it.

He believes that the church is
good way to spread the message.

“The church is the social con-
science of the people and they

said.

“I think everybody is very inter-

on Grand Bahama with health.

care professionals and business-

persons, the minister said that

feedback has been positive.

He said: “From the beginning,
we seem to have had the support
of employers even though they
would be required to make an
additional contribution on behalf
of their employees — because
many of them realise that if they
can keep their workers healthy,
productivity on the job would be
better.”

Money

“So even though they may be
paying a little bit more money
they are going to get the return
on their money.

“The intention is that everybody
who is employed belongs to it
because that way the contribution
rate is low and benefits can be
shared with Bveny Ones he
explained.

Employers would be asked to
pay a contribution of 2.65 per cent
of their workers’ salary, employ-
ees would also ‘have to pay 2.65
per cent, and self-employed per-









sons would have to pay the full.
5.3 percent, while pensioners
would pay $1 per day; a provision
which is still under review.

Although health care workers
understand the benefits,. Dr
Bethel stated that the physicians
are a little “wary” about the
objectives that have been set.

“We are working along with

them and I believe ultimately we
will come to an understanding,”
he said.
_ The minister added that the pri-
vate health insurers are also con-
cerned. about how NHI will
impact their business and their
profits.

“We are also working with them
too, but we have an obligation to
provide insurance for everyone,
but they are only able to insure a
small portion of the population
who are able to afford health
insurance — and for us that is not
good enough,” he said.

THE TRIBUNE;




Government accused of breaking
its promises to taxi drivers

THE government was yes-
terday accused of failing to live
up to several promises made to
taxi drivers earlier this year.

Insufficient parking was just
one of the many issues that taxi
driver Mark Sawyer brought up
during a press conference held
at Festival Place on the Prince
George Wharf yesterday.

Parking, facilities and charter
buses named among concerns



members of the press.

The wharf is the prime spot
for drivers seeking customers
off of cruise ships. As it stands
now however, the lack of park-
ing means that many cab dri-
vers are forced to park on Bay
Street if they want to get cus-
tomers, Mr Sawyer said.

He said that he met with the

Ministry of Transport and Avi- '

ation on many occasions to
voice his concerns about this
situation.

Mr Sawyer claimed that on
March 14 of this year, officials
from the Ministry of Trans-
port and Aviation came to
Festival Place and made sev-
eral promises after hearing the
comments of taxi drivers about
the parking situation.

He added that taxi cab dri-
vers have made representation
to the government for the
improvement of the recreation
facilities at Festival Place and
were promised changes, but
nothing was done.

He also pleaded with the
government to allow taxi oper-
ators who are not carrying pas-
sengers to cross the Paradise
Island bridge toll free.

Mr Sawyers also expressed
his concern about-the activi-
ties of charter bus companies —
which, he claimed, pick up
large groups of passengers,
leaving fewer fares for taxi dri-
vers.

He went on to criticise the
fact that vehicles imported for
use as taxis will cease to be
duty free in 2008.

A companion piece Secret School

The One-room Schoolhouse

@ By PATRICIA
GLINTON-MEICHOLAS
© 2006

PART HL

C. I GIBSON, M. W. Gibson,
A. T. Turnquest, J. Burnside, N.
G. M. Major, F. G. S. Morley,
N. Dorsett, G. T. Smith... These
were the masters of the one-
room schoolhouses scattered in
communities throughout the
archipelago. They were so often
noted by just first and middle ini-
tials and surname that it seemed
that they had no given names.
Or, who knows, they may have
kept them from the general pub-
lic; so as to create or preserve
the awe in which the great teach-
ers were held in the days of long
ago when “teacher” was another
term for “honoured elder” and
not a target for hooligans and
armchair politicians. So great was
the esteem of those of this call-
ing, that the term of address was
often just “Teacher”.

But times and attitudes
change. Except for those who by
rare fortune or political favour
had schools named for them,
most of the one-room school-
masters are largely forgotten.
They are enshrined mostly in
fond but failing memories of
those whose lives they touched
directly.

_- In honesty, it must be said that
some are best forgotten, but
many more are eminently worthy
of national record and praise.
‘These were Bahamians and, in
some cases, non Bahamians, who
were posted on islands far away
from their native communities
or even homelands. F. G. S. Mor-
ley came all the way from Eng-
land to teach in South Eleuthera
in 1926. —

yt It was such teachers who pre-
dicted that their charges, though
far away from city lights and
‘amenities, could pass the Cam-
‘bridge Junior and Senior Exam-
‘nations, could reach as high 4s
their courage would stretch, a

q

prediction that often came true in

‘the likes of the hundreds who
‘followed in the footsteps of their

‘uch admired mentors to
‘become teachers and later Min-
4sters of Government, like Liv-
‘ingston Coakley or Ambassadors

slike L. B. Johnson or even Gov-
‘ernor-Generals like Sir Clifford
‘Darling, Sir Henry Milton Taylor
-or Dame Ivy Dumont, nee’ Turn-
‘quest. .

Of social position, many of the

great teachers had little and of
‘money even less, but with nat-
‘ural gifts they were abundantly
» endowed. The great books that

had stood the test of time were

‘constant and treasured compan-

‘ions and the Bahamian teachers
‘of legend could quote their

authors as well as they might a

‘friend whose society they fre-
_quented daily. They played a
' major part in instilling an appre-
“ ciation of heritage and the self-

i esteem, the knowledge and

| appreciation of the right of men
_and women to freedom, good

governance and a place of

_ respect in their own land. At the
, Same time, these “head teach-

ers”, as they were called, knew
and taught that a person’s life
“was not just about rights and get-

ting, but equally about obliga-

: tion to kin, colleague, commu-
: nity and country and, above all,

to God.
Their time was a time when

stories of values and virtues per-

meated the curriculum. The best

' of the head teachers saw it as
‘ their duty to help their pupils see

that the duty to God could only

. be fulfilled, if the obligation to
» others was discharged. One of
' the highest ways of giving back to
- the Almighty was.to fulfill the
' obligation to make the best use
' of the brain, the talents and

hands divinely given. They
instilled the values of self respect,

. Tespect for law, respect for prop-
“erly constituted authority, hon-
i esty and hard work.
' ;sstern Men, who saw no reason
‘fo spare the rod, not if it could
: help to save a young man or

As with the characters from the story

The Secret School, the Bahamas had, and still has,.
the tradition of one-room schoolhouses. Patricia
Glinton-Meicholas, renowned Bahamian author,
shares memories of this tradition, and the role the
schoolhouse played in the life of the community.



better known C. C. Smith. It was
a good tinte for The Bahamas,
if not all Bahamians. Trade in
sponges and pineapples was
thriving and Nassau, the capital,
was about to move into the age
of technology. By the time the
young Eleutheran was fourteen
years old, New Providence had
acquired an undersea cable link
with the United States between

Cable Beach and Jupiter, Flori- |

da. During the same period Hen-
ry Flagler had built his Colonial
Hotel, Nassau had seen its first
car, its first “movie”, first tele-
phone system and first electric
lights. The Royal Bank, of which
Smith would one day become a
client, had also opened its doors
to offer dependable banking ser-
vices. ,

Smith’s early family life had

not been an easy one. His moth- _

er had died when he was very
young and in his early adoles-
cence, he was put in the care of
his maternal uncle N. Dorsett in
a kind of apprenticeship. It.was
hoped that George, as smart a
boy as he was, would become a
teacher, too. And so he did—at
age eighteen and married not
long after in Long Island to a
young woman of the settlement
of Simms, where he had been
assigned by the Board of Edu-
cation. He gathered great learn-
ing along the way. In his youth he
had attended the Boys Central
School like many who went on to
gain fame in the classroom. Boys
Central had, in fact, been estab-
lished for training “assistant
teachers”. In later years, about
1938, he was one. of:a lucky
group who got to do a pro-
gramme at the famed Tuskegee
University.

Colleagues

Like many of his colleagues
posted in what were then called
the “Out Islands”; he would be
posted to an island for a while
and then be reassigned to anoth-
er as needs and vacancies dictat-
ed. During the course of his
career G. T. Smith would come
to know San Salvador, Long
Island, North and Central
Andros, Exuma and, for seven-
teen years, Port Howe, Cat
Island, which was to be his
longest and last official post. A
chart of the birthplaces of his
children could almost constitute
a map of the major islands of the
Bahamian archipelago.

Reassignment for a teacher
meant packing up kith and kin
and taking a sailboat on peril-
filled waters to begin anew in a
new place among strangers.
There was little recourse if the

posting was.not to one’s liking ~

and no question of complaining
about lack of supplies, the
teacher’s residence or the school-
house, no matter their condition.
Moving also separated the head-
master and his family from fast

‘friends and left them counting

on indifferent inter-island mail
to retain ties.

G. T. Smith like many of his
colleagues was a man of all sea-
sons and had to be. They were
responsible for teaching the
whole curriculum. It was a heavy
burden. They knew that their
pupils, unless they became, mon-
itors, would have to leave school
at fourteen. It was teacher’s job
to make certain that young heads
were filled up with as much use-
ful knowledge and as many skills
as they could pack into them.
Like his fellow Eleutherans,
Smith was musical, could read
music with facility and engage in
and teach sight singing, He trea-
sured great literature and books
in general and, when he was not
hard at work, would always be
seen with reading material in
hand.

“Teacher” performed many
roles in the communities in which
he found himself. He was post-
master for the Royal Mail; he
was counselor. He was an
impromptu corrections officer to
whom mothers on their own
brought their boys to be casti-
gated verbally or to be whipped,
when their own fathers were
away working, had died or sim-
ply forsook their responsibilities.
It was Teacher who kept a
barometer and warned of the
“lass falling” signaling the




r



advent of a hurricane and the
need to seek shelter on high
ground. It was he who kept an
almanac and could advise fellow
farmers of the best planting times
for various crops. As the only
public servant resident in most
settlements, it was often he and
his wife, who received visiting
dignitaries, priests and bishops
and the island’s Commissioner.
All of these appearances would
galvanize the teacher’s house-
hold into baking bread and
sweets, killing and cooking the
fatted calf at a moment’s notice,
all out of a natural hospitality
and more than a little desire not
to make a poor showing before
the elevated townsfolk.

Smith would, in one minute,
be rendering first aid in the
absence of resident health care

practitioners, and could turn
round to become the impresario,
the drama and musical coach for
the community’s “programmes”
of which there were a regular
round to mark Christmases,
Empire Days, the King or
Queen’s Birthday and religious
feasts. He was a safety deposit
for valuables and cash where
there was no bank, village scribe

and keeper of records. He was ,

the one who saw that families
got their remittances in respect of
their men’s work on the Con-
tract, by which means they found
employment as migrant labour
in the wartime fields of the Unit-
ed States.
G..T. Smith was an educator
‘by vocation, but an afternoon
and vacation farmer by necessity.
- It was by this means he and oth-

ers like him often covered the
gap between salary and family
needs and thus prevented their
children from going threadbare
or shoeless. He knew great loss.
His first wife died at Arthur’s
Town in childbirth, but it was
also his fortune to meet and mar-
ry a second wife there: Alean
Rowena Smith would remain by

his side for fifty plus years. The .

second Mrs Smith and several of
the Smith children were on
board the Ivalee out of Andros
when this sailing boat sank with-
in sight of Fort Charlotte in the
mid-thirties. The youngest of
them, a babe in arms, did not
reach land alive. The oldest son
was consumed by a sudden and
unrelenting ailment at just 20.
Men of G. T.’s ilk grieved, but
were not broken by adversity.
They took all that came to them
as a part of the grand plan and
did their duty no matter what.

Many left the helm only when.
death, infirmity or official retire-,

ment took them away. In any
case, the teacher’s centrality
greatly decreased as modes of

communication increased and

living on an out island became
less of a trial by ordeal. With the

disappearance of the old guard —

while employment and house-
hold incomes skyrocketed.
Arguably, Grand Bahama is
only keeping afloat today
because of the investments and
economic activity generated
during the time of the FNM.

; nder the FNM, unem-
ployment in Grand

Bahama dropped from 16.9 per
cent in 1992 to 6.4 per cent in
2002; an almost 300 per cent
decline. Grand Bahama’s

unemployment in the first three
years of the PLP rose from 6.4

in 2004. In our first three years
in office, the FNM produced
1,560 jobs in GB while the PLP

420.

published figures from the

Department of Statistics, was

and Grand Bahama could not
get any answers out of the gov-
ernment as to what was hap-
pening. Sixteen hundred jobs in
Grand Bahama were hanging |
in the balance and the govern-
ment was in stunned silence.
When the Christie administra-
tion did say something, it sound-
ed more like people out of
office than people in office.
When the hotel restoration
stopped, once again, the

Christie administration was .

silent. Only after workers agi-

government.

Pees with great politi-
cal pressure, the gov-

decided to pay off some of Bot-

Even in this they were rocky.

Four years later, not only has
the PLP not built the much
needed new Junior-high school,
they have failed to improve the
schools they ‘met in place. In
fact, in many instances there
was not even sufficient effec-

Grand Bahama properly for
opening.

Indeed, the hurricanes that.
struck Grand Bahama proba-

neglect in preparing for school
openings on the island. Rather
than rise to the challenge and
try to respond to the damage
caused by the hurricanes, which
gave them a breather, the gov-
ernment let months and months
go by without addressing that
damage, resulting in teachers
sitting out of the classroom
rather than sitting in them
teaching children.

Things have been difficult for
Grand Bahamians over the last.‘
four years. People are com/

workers are hurting; businesses
are suffering; families are hurt-

“then the government should
have done proper consultation
with the junior members of the
force.”

Mr Sands said the Police Staff
- Association Act, which was
passed in 1997, allows the chair-
man of the association, under arti-
cle 61, to make proper represen-
tation to the government, to the
commission, and any other rele-
vant authorities, on all matters
affecting junior officers.

This government, the Inspec-
tor continued, did not seize the
opportunity to allow this organi-
zation, which travels the length
and breath of the Commonwealth
of the Bahamas, to speak to them
on this issue.

“T have been sitting now as
Chair for the last three years,”
said Mr Sands, “and no‘consulta-
tion has been done with me or
any executive member about the
Act being debated.”

According to Mr Sands, “the
government is laying an act

‘before Parliament, the founda-
* tion of which should be the wel-
. fare of the Royal Bahamas Police
. Force, and when you take care
- of the welfare of the force, then
- you are dealing with the efficien-
cy of the organization on the
» whole.”
In the Bill now before Parlia-
ment, Mr Sands said, there are
- several areas of concerned to offi-
- cers on the front line that the Bill
has neglected. In particular, Mr
> Sands pointed to the Bill’s inabil-
ity to address health insurance

Staff Association

for the officers.

“Last year,” Mr Sands said,
“the government allocated an
additional $2 million to improve
health care for law enforcement
officers. They promised us bet-
ter health coverage.

“The fiscal year is almost over,
and the promises have not been
kept.”

Mr Sands, in his address, stat-
ed: “In April of last year, the
Chief Executive got up in Parlia-
ment and said, ‘Sands knows in
short order that health care is on
the way.’ That was April of last
year. Sir, April of this year is
gone. Where is the health care?
We are tired of lip service.”

The association president told
the media that they have heard
persons repeatedly say, “J can fix
it with the stroke of a pen.”
“But,” he said, “if a police officer
is shot in the line of duty, it is
wrong for that officer to be
healed within 28 days or face
being placed on severance aid
pay. It is wrong and no govern-
ment should proceed to its Par-
liament with an Act that does not
rectify this problem.”

“There is no mention in this
Police Act that deals with offi-
cers injured in the line of duty
being placed on severance aid
pay. We are making the ultimate
sacrifice with our lives, for God’s
sake, show us some love!” the
officer exclaimed.

“When we are going after these
criminals and they are firing at

us,” Inspector Sands continued,
“and we are hit with bullets, then
medical institutions don’t have to
run us away because our health
care is a 1984 fee schedule.”

“If you want to fix anything for
law enforcement officers, fix that.
The urgency that they are putting
behind this police act, put
that behind the insurance,” he
said.

Another area of concern for
police that the Bill does not seem
to address, according to Inspector
Sands, has to do with section 91
of the Act.

Section 91, said Mr Sands,
speaks to the fact that the Minis-
ter has the right to send an officer
home at the age of 45. “Com-
pulsory retirement,” Mr Sands
calls it.

“How could we allow an Act to
be passed that would send a
young man home at 45, and then
when we look at the hierarchy of
the police force, it is close to 70?
Something is definitely wrong
there. It is wrong!” the Inspector
told the media.

Despite the fact that govern-
ment brags that it is a govern-
ment of consultation, Inspector
Sands said, whomever they have
consulted with does not repre-

-sent the junior officers'of the

police force.

“Apparently they believed that
they could speak with someone
way up in the rank, someone who
could say, ‘okay, these fellows
them said proceed.’” However,
the officer continued, “It is not
so. We have not given any green
light.”

“I ask you to stop any officer
along the length and breadth of
this country and ask them if they
have been consulted on this: Act,
and you will get a resounding
‘No,’” said the Inspector.

He said that if the government
proceeds in passing this Bill, as
they have the numbers to: pass

‘the bill, it will be sad, as it does

not address the welfare issues of
the junior officers of the Royal
Bahamas Police Force. Howev-
er, he continued, there is a
recourse that they as officers
have.

Not wanting to say what this
recourse was, the only hint that
Mr Sands offered was: “We are
armed and ready. We will go
from island to island, and we will
educate our members, and we
will sensitize them to the perti-

‘nent issues and. how we will be

going forward.”

While Inspector Sands was
expressing his concerns at gov-
ernment’s lack of consultation

with oificets, Member of paula: y

that he received after consulting
with members of the Royal
Bahamas Police Force.
According to Mr Stubbs, the
officers that he surveyed about
the Police Act, for the most part,
‘say that the Act is “okay,” but
that it needs to be “a little

tighter.”

However, MP Stubbs said,
“nobody was able to explain what
‘a little tighter’ was.’”

The Holy Cross MP added that
he got the surprise of his life
when he:asked senior officers if
they had read the Act, and they

call basically said, “No.” =" -
Yet, during his press confer-
ence yesterday, Inspector San,
said that, had they consulted wit
the small man. who represents
2000 officers, they would have
found out what some of our con-

cerns were. iz 3

“In addition to pursuing any possible negative

Blind receptionist sets an 4);
example to her colleagues. .

RECEPTIONIST Samantha
Bethel juggles upwards of 200
calls a day at the busy Ministry
of Financial Services and Invest-
ments switchboard.

Many callers are surprised
how quickly she recognises their
voice; few realise she is blind.

“A lot of people tell me I
should be receptionist of the
year, and they don’t have any
idea I’m blind,” she laughs.

Staying cool, calm and col-
lected with a dozen lines ringing

would never have been possi- _

ble without the education she
got at the Salvation Army
School for the Blind over nine
years.

“That school brought out of
you what you didn’ t know you
had inside you,” she said.

According to her supervisor
Errole Conliffe, “Ever since she
came here in 2004, Samantha

i SAMANTHA Bethel at work

has shown that she is compe-
tent, independent and focused.
In fact, she motivates the staff.
People gravitate towards her

- because she is so focused.”



Bethel’s request: give more
blind persons a chance to show
what they can do,and when the
opportunity arises, give her
more ofa challenge. .

‘stration of examination at the
Testing and Evaluation Centre at
the Ministry of Education in
Freepoft, reported that there was
no bréach of the national exami-
nation scripts. \

“We want to.advise the public
that all is safe and well as far as
the examination scripts for the
2006 sitting,” she said on Wednes-
day dpring an emergency press
conferénce held at the ministry’s
offices in the Kipling Building.

“Although the area where the
exams was stored was broken
into, we have checked the exam-
ination scripts against the mani-
fest that we received from Cam-

Break-in

order.” ’

Mrs Duncombe assured the
public that all the exams have
been accounted for and are now
back at the ministry’s office.

“We have the papers at pre-
sent and they won’t be reléased
until we can be assured that they
would be safe at the school,” she
said,

Mr Sands was sent to Freeport
to ensure that the integrity of the
examinations are indeed intact.

“My purpose here is to verify
the report submitted to me by the
officers on Grand Bahama, and to
allay fears of people in the com-
munity and to let them know that

all of the examination papers are
intact and in our custody.”

He said that ministry would be
able to proceed with the first
exams on Friday,

Mr Sands explained that if
there was a breach, the ministry
would be forced to recall all of
the papers throughout the coun-
try, and not just in the island
where it happened.

“That would mean expending
considerable additional funds to
have papers developed and
reprinted and back in the country
in time to start examinations. It is
a very costly process to the tune
of maybe $2 million to do that.

In addition to the cost, Mr
Sands said that a breach would
also impact the integrity of the
exams.

Students are
honoured

THE TRIBUNE



after My
Bahamas
competition |

STUDENTS throughout the .

Bahamas who participated in
the My Bahamas School com-
petitions earlier this year were

honoured in a lavish awards cer-

emony at the Bahamas Nation-
al Art Gallery on West Street
on Friday.

My Bahamas consisted of
poetry, essay, photo and poster
contests. And according to the
judges, all of the submissions
were top notch and displayed
the tremendous capacity for tal-
ent among the Bahamian youth.

In the end however, only one
student could win in each cate-
gory,

While New Providence stu-
dents dominated in the poster
and éssay competition, the win-
ning poetry and photo submis-
sions came from Grand
Bahama and Abaco respective-
ly

Geographic photo competition,
the winner hailed from the Aba-
cos. Gabrielle Manni of Forest
Heights School took home this
prize.

For the My Bahamas poster
competition, Anthony Wood-
side of C V Bethel Senior High
School in New Providence
emerged as winner. His stun-
ning depiction “My Nassau”
won over all of the judges.

Winners of the poetry and

_ essay competitions were Tekara

Capron, Walter Parker Primary
School on Grand Bahama and
Candace Darling of Nassau
Christian Academy.

Winners in the competitions
received an array of prizes
including: all-expense paid trips
to.a Family Island, trophies, My
Bahamas memorabilia and cash.

The My Bahamas competi-
tions are part of an overall
thrust to involve students in cul-
tivating and showcasing nation-
al pride.

In the My Bahamas National

It is.just one aspect of a far-
reaching campaign launched by
the Ministry of Tourism in ear-
ly November 2005.

“The ultimate aim of the My
Bahamas campaign is to use the
momentum of Bahamians’ care
and attention to the environ-
ment and the country in gener- :
al to reposition the islands of
the Bahamas as a greatly
improved and more enhanced
tourist destination,” said the
ministry in a press release.

In the broader My Bahamas
campaign, tourism officials are
using well-known Bahamian
sports icons, ‘entertainers,
Cacique awardees and ordinary
citizens to:promote the My
Bahamas concept to the gener-
al public.

The campaign also features a
number of civic volunteer pro-
grammes organised and run by
various non-governmental,
community and environmental
organisations. ;

Congratulating the students
for their participation and the
tremendous amount of work
put into the submissions, Per-
manent Secretary in the Min-
istry of Tourism Colin Higgs:
encouraged the students to con-
tinue to excel both personally’
and scholastically.

He also encouraged them to

cept by demonstrating concern:
for the environment in which:
they live. ERA ei
“We as Bahamians must’
recognise the wonderful trea-
sures we have in the jewels
known as the islands of the
Bahamas,” he said. “Every year
visitors spend billions of dollars
to enjoy just a few days of what
we get to experience for free
every day of our lives. We must
‘cherish and take ownership in
protecting what we have.”

ILO to help develop Bahamas
orkplace safety standards -

& By CARA BRENNEN
Tribune Staff Reporter



ecommendations from

an International

Labour Organisation

(ILO) occupation safe-

ty profile on the

Bahamas will help this nation’s soon-

to-be-established Advisory Council

on Health and Safety at Work to

develop health and safety standards

for the Bahamian workplace, The Tri-
bune was told yesterday.

' Brian Nutt, president of the

Bahamas Employers Confederation

(BECon) told The Tribune that a
team from the ILO’s health and safe-
ty department will visit the Bahamas

to assess working conditions for .
Bahamians as part of a comparative’

study they are conducting in five
Caribbean countries.

The study aims to ensure that basic
health and safety standards are main-
tained in the region’s workplaces. The
Bahamas and other states had par-

ticipated in an ILO meeting last |

December, held in Port-of-Spain,
Trinidad.

Mr Nutt explained that once com-
pleted, the ILO will work with each

, country to point out its strengths and.

weaknesses, and will make recom-
mendations as to how employers can
ensure they provide a safer environ-
ment for their employees.

Mr Nutt said he believed this will be
the first time a study of this kind is
completed in the Bahamas.

“It will be useful, as the country is
on the verge of establishing the Advi-
sory Council on Occupational Safety,”
he said.

The advisory council was estab-
lished in the Health and Safety at
Work Act 2002, passed by the for-
mer FNM government as part if its

labour legislation. This Act regulates
health and safety standards in the
Bahamian workplace.

Mr Nutt explained that the Council

was to be comprised of three repre- |

sentatives from employers, three from
employees, representatives from the
Ministry of Health, the Ministry of
Works, Fire Services and an inspector
appointed by the Ministry of Labour.

Once the ILO completes its pro-
file, it will share its findings with the
Council to assist them as they work to
advise the Minister of Labour on what
the guidelines for occupational health
and safety should be in the Bahamas.





Roberts: BTC 2005 profits up four-fold



’

THE Bahamas Telecommunications
Company (BTC) generated a four-fold
increase in net profits to $34.533 million
during its 2005 financial year, the minis-
ter of works and public utilities told the
PLP Convention.

Bradley Roberts, in what appeared to
be an address against privatising BTC,

. said the state-owned telecoms provider
and cellular monopoly holder had
rebounded from 2004, when its profits

dipped to $8.34 million as a result of

damage caused to its infrastructure-by
Hurricanes Frances and Jeanne.

Mr Roberts said BTC had earned $300
million in revenues for the first time in its
history during the 12 months to Decem-
ber 31, 2005, despite seeing its fixed-line
revenues decrease still further as a result
of competition - both legal and illegal.

_ The arrival of Systems Resource
Group’s (SRG) IndiGO Networks as a
legal competitor in fixed-line service pro-
vision forced BTC to reduce its long-
distarice and inter-island tariffs to make
them competitive. And callback and
Voice over Internet Protocol (VoIP)
have further eroded what was once its
mainstay.

BTC these ae is kept afloat by its

cellular
monopoly,
something that
is unlikely to be
welcomed by
business and
residential con-
sumers.
_ Mr Roberts @
said BTC’s cel- |
lular sub- |
scribers had }
increased in-
number from
115,000 when it
took office in
May 2002 to almost 200,000 today,
breaking these down into 119,000-GSM
users and 80,000 TDMA subscribers.

li B ROBERTS

He added that BTC had spent more

than $35 million to install GSM services

_in Grand Bahama and New Providence,

and it was now investing $14 million to
do the same in Abaco, $1 million in
Bimini-and $6 million in Exuma.

The Bahamas Telecommunications
Company's (BTC) net profits fell by 78.4
per cent in 2004 to just $8.34 million, as
expenses increased by $47.7 million in
comparison to 2003, driven partly by the



cost of: repairs following Hurricanes
Frances ‘and Jeanne.

The accounts reveal that BTC's net
profits had fallen from $38.679 million in
2003, as operating expenses increased
by 22 per cent, rising from $217.057 mil-
lion the year before to $264. 107 million
in 2004.

In his notes in the agile! report,
Michael Symonette, BTC's now former.
president and chief executive, said the
increase in operating expenses was

‘caused by the cost of repairs resulting

from the two hurricanes in September
2004. :
The re-engineering consultants hired
by the Government in 2004, PJP Course-
mark, were brought in to introduce best
industry practices, standards and bench-
marking to BTC, in preparation for
another shot at privatisation.
PJP, according to BTC's annual
reports, earned $2.718 million in fees for

. its work.

Meanwhile, the asset verification exer-
cise had not been completed as at year-

end 2004, but BTC management had set’

Recovery is a very
dull topic. Anybody
who enjoys dis-

For all these people, the first

thing - or very little - in place in
the way of a recovery strategy,
the best place to start is by focus-
ing on Disaster Recovery. If you
haven’t found the time or the
funds to implement the capabili-
ty to recover your data, the
chances of you being able to find
far more time and funds to devel-
op and implement a Business
Continuity Plan are negligible.
So, focus on what is most impor-
tant: your data. Without this, your
ability to operate will be severely
limited.

So, to keep things quite real,
these are the steps that all com-
panies can cost-effectively and
simply follow to develop some
capability to recover from a dis-
aster. These steps will not take
you to the equivalent of a Disas-
ter Recovery utopia; they will,
however, provide you with the
foundation to build on when the
gods smile upon you and grant
you an excess of funds and time.

1. Data Protection

Determine your business’ most
critical application. Protect this
application and ensure you can
restore it again if you lose your IT
systems. Given that the most
common natural disasters in the
Bahamas are hurricanes, get this
data out of your building and out
of harm’s way.

There are many solutions that
can protect your data. In general,
the faster they can get you up and
running, the more costly they are.
In determining your budget, you
may like to calculate how much
down time will cost you in terms
of both productivity and revenue.
There are calculations available
on any Disaster Recovery web-
site, or you may like to get the
auditors in. You can then make a
decision as to which solution

would be the most cost-effective -

for. you.

For example, a state of the art
real-time data replication solu-
tion could be relatively inexpen-

sive given the cost of down time. -

For other businesses, the rela-
tively slow recovery time of tape
backup will be sufficient if their
cost of down time is minimal.
There are solutions to suit
every budget and requirement,
and it is just a matter of under-

standing and jassessing the

options.

ness that you could not do with-

get this business division up and
running quickly. You can think
creatively about different solu-
tions to this: it does not have to be

BAHAMIAN consumers
could benefit from lower prices
via a reduction in import duties
that would result if this nation
became a full World Trade
Organisation (WTO) member,
the minister of state for finance
said.

Addressing the Bahamas
Chamber of Commerce’s glob-
alisation conference, James
Smith said other beneficiaries
from a reduction in import and
customs duties would be busi-
nesses whose cash flows were
eaten up by the tax burden
imposed on imports.

Joining the WTO and other
rules-based trading systems
would force the Bahamas to
drastically alter its tax regime,

A solid foundation has been
built during the past 50 years.
These five decades have wit-
nessed our transition to inde-
pendence, and the diversifica-
tion of ownership and power
among ever greater numbers in
our society.

We have, however, reached a
plateau and must now climb to
the next mountain top if our
people are to truly have their
day in the sun.

and import duties to generate
about 60 per cent of government
revenues.

These duties would be treated
as barriers to trade or tariffs
under the WTO, rather than as
a revenue-raising mechanism,
and ruled as a protectionist mea-
sure. Therefore, import duties
will have to go or be substan-
tially lowered.

Yet Mr Smith said that the
Bahamas would not have to
totally eliminate the Customs
Department or import duties if
it became a full WTO member -
it currently has Observer status.
He explained that the Customs
Department would still be need-
ed to combat the smuggling of
illegal goods and immigrants.

“T don’t forsee the Customs
machinery being dismantled and
reduced to zero,” Mr Smith said.
“IT don’t see the total elimina-

tion of the Customs machinery
or duties.”

He added that full member-
ship in the WTO would cause a
tariff rebalancing, rather than
their total elimination.

Mr Smith said: “The impact
for the Bahamas, if we were to
reduce the average [tariff] rate
from 35 per cent to 10 per cent,
and able to pick up that differ-
ence in VAT, the immediate
benefit in reducing tariffs from
35-10 per cent will be those busi-
nesses which, up till now, prob-
ably had to use cash flow for
inventory up to 30 per cent of
import values.”

He explained that any reduc-
tion in import duties would
improve cash flow for Bahamian
businesses heavily reliant on
imported goods.

In addition, the reduction in
import duty rates might produce

implementation.

1- The school system and its
curriculum should be designed
to prepare a large number of
our young people to be able to
run and work in the businesses
of the Bahamas Inc.

2 —The business licensing reg-
ulations should be altered to

The Government has been
studying the implementation of
a value-added tax (VAT) for
several years, not just because of
potential WTO membership. -

‘Mr Smith has said that the
existing tax system is taxing too
narrow a revenue base, being
primarily a tax on international
goods and trade, and not being
levied on the services sector
which accounts for most eco-
nomic activity in the Bahamas.

The Government’s target has
been to collect revenues equiv-
alent to 20 per cent of this
nation’s gross domestic product

fallen short of this, leading some
to charge that the existing tax
system does not collect enough.

Bahamas disappointed with US over copyright

i By CARA BRENNEN
Tribune Staff Reporter

» ATTORNEY-General Allyson Maynard-
Gibson said the Government was disap-
pointed that the Bahamas remained on the
US. Trade Representative’s (USTR) Spe-
cial 301 Watch List for 2006, especially
because ‘Washington and US-based copy-
right holders had not honoured the terms of
a 2000 agreement.

-The USTR said the‘Bahamias remained

on the list because it has failed to implement
an amendment to the Copyright Act that
was passed in 2004. The amendment nar-
rowed the scope of the compulsory licensing
regime for the reception and transmission of
copyright works broadcast free over the
air. :
Speaking with The Tribune, Mrs May-
nard-Gibson said the listing was disap-
pointing, particularly as the US had not
been as forthcoming in facilitating the trans-
mission of copywright material in the
Bahamas as they could be.

‘She said Cable Bahamas’ and other
Bahamian providers have expressed a will-
ingness to pay copyright fees to broadcast »
English language programming, and urged
the US to honour the commitment made in
2000. |
| Under the terms of that agreement, the
Motion Picture Association of America
(MPAA), its members and other copyright
holders were supposed to enter good faith
negotiations with Cable Bahamas for a com-
mercial agreement that would allow the
Bahamian firm to provide English-speaking
programmes, yet pay royalty and licence
fees to copyright holders.

picked up in the Caribbean due to their

Speaking to the Copyright Amendment
Act 2004, Mrs Maynard Gibson said the
Government remained in negotiations with
service providers, including Cable Bahamas.

She said the amendment to the Act was
passed, and the Government was working
alongside industry partners to ensure they
were enforced with as little impact as pos-
sible.

In placing the Bahamas on the Special
301 watch list, the USTR said: “The Unit-
ed States remains concerned over the
Bahamas’ failure to implement an amend-
ment to the Copyright Act enacted by the
Bahamian government in 2004. The
amendment narrowed the scope of the

compulsory licensing regime for the recep- |

tion and transmission of copyright works
broadcast free over the air.”

“In the absence of such implementa-
tion, the compulsory licensing plan con-
tains provisions that allow Bahamian cable
operators to retransmit any copyrighted

television programming, including for- pay:

programming whether or not transmitted

’ from the Bahamas or outside the Bahamas

jand whether or not encrypted,” the USTR
said.

It added that under existing Bahamian
regulations, the remuneration system for
copyrighted works under the compulsory
licensing programme included “less than
fair market value rates for hotels and oth-
er commercial enterprises”.

“The United States also urges all inter-
ested parties, including US cable operators
and copyrights holders, to seek commer-
cial solutions that would facilitate the legal
transmission of cable programming by
cable operators in the Bahamas,” the
USTR said.

Date set for Hope Town planning referendum

@ By A FELICITY INGRAHAM
Tribune Business Reporter



NORTH ABACO will host its first
referendum next month, when more
than 600 voters go to the polls to voice
their opinion on the shape that future
development in the area will take.

Chief Councillor of the Hope Town
District Council, Wayne Hall, told
Tribune Business that the Parlia-
mentary Registrar has authorised a
referendum, and it will be held on
May 15, 16 and 17.

It is the first time in district council
history that members have lobbied
so hard that a referendum will be
held, and it will impact future devel-
opments.

According to Mr Hall, it will be a
proud day for North Abaconians,
especially those who are pushing to
have their white paper instituted for
the sake of proper town planning and
zoning.

A white paper was drafted by the
Hope Town District Council in
response to a number of develop-
ments that are springing up through-
out the Bahamas and in their area.

Mr Hall said the lengthy paper has
now been reduced to 30 pages, out-
lining the wishes of the Hope Town
residents and the wider community,
including Man-O-War Cay and Gua-
na Cay.

He called the white paper a “frame-
work for change", and said he was
pleased to have the support of local
government behind them.

The white paper, which can be
found on the website hopetowncoun-
cil.com, begins: "We, the residents
and stake holders of the Hope Town
District, believe in self-determination
as an excellent (and the only) tool for
holding on to the best that the Hope
Town District has to offer.

“We, better than anyone else, know
the pride of taking good care of the

land, air and sea of the Hope Town
District, the thrill of sharing the land,
air and water with the other inhabi-
tants of this space."

Mr Hall said a successful outcome
in the referendum will lead the coun-
cil to press Parliament to have by-
laws instituted, giving them legal
backing to refuse developments that
will change the character of their com-
munity.

At present, Hope Town residents
say they have a quaint, rustic com-
munity with old-fashioned Family
Island charm. Large developments,
which require flattening of the land,
high rises and exclusive vacation sites,
will take away from what makes that

‘ area so unique.

Hope Town, Man-O War and Gua-
na Cay residents say that boutique
hotels with island charm, nature trails
and ‘eco-sensitive developments would
be more suitable not only for them,
but for similar areas throughout the

Bahamas.

Fifty-one per cent of total votes cast
will have to be in favour of the white
paper for it to survive. Mr Hall said
the paper's purpose included encour-
aging orderly and appropriate physi-
cal development; promoting public
health, safety, convenience and gen-
eral welfare; and to classify, desig-
nate, and regulate the location and
use of buildings, structures and land
for agricultural, residential, commer-
cial and industrial uses.

Mr Hall said the paper was their
way of stating that their district is
worth fighting for.

The website states: "There is no
place on earth exactly like the Hope

_ Town District — it cannot be dupli-

cated now or ever. It is worth saving
and we, through our self-determina-
tion, are building a team which can
better understand the elements of its
magic and preserve and enhance it.
“The choices that the Hope Town

District has determined to be the best
for itself in the past have not been
selfish or greedy — far from it. They
have been healthy choices for the
neighborhood and therefore give
health directly to the larger commu-
nity."

pated write-down in asset values that was includ-

ed in the 2004 accounts.

BTC's executives, who apart from Mr Symon-
ette also included former chairman Reno Brown
(now replaced by Fidelity banker Gregory
Bethel) and Leon Williams, its senior vice-pres-
ident and chief operations officer, preferred to
concentrate on the revenue side of the 2004

business.

Total revenues grew by 7.1 per cent com-
pared to 2003, going from $256.268 million to
$274.464 million, due largely to BTC's cellular
monopoly, which saw the launch of GSM ser-
vices and removal of the moratorium.

Mr Symonette said cellular revenues grew by
21 per cent to $126.4 million, while the number
of wireless customers increased by 63,779 to
total 186.007. DSL subscribers grew by 42 per
cent to total 11,109, with revenues up by 30 per

cent over 2003.

However, Mr Williams acknowledged that. .

BTC's long distance and basic telephone services
remained weak as a result.of competition, both

the legal variety from Systems Resource Group

(SRG) and the illegal kind - callback and Voice
over Internet Protocol (VoIP).
Revenues from long distance operations fell -
by 3.7 per cent to $61.8 million, with BTC reduc-
ing its rates to respond -to competition from
SRG's IndiGo Networks - a classic strategy of

predatory pricing to drive the new operator out

‘ of the market.
The total number of fixed lines in service dur-
ing 2004 increased by 1.7 per cent to 133,936,
- compared to 131,682 at the end of 2003. |
Without qualifying its audit opinion, PwC
said BTC had become embroiled in a dispute
with the Bahamas Electricity Corporation
(BEC) over charges for pole attachments. PwC
said no provision for any potential liability for
this had been made in the accounts.’

key for hotel financing

rise in 2006.

The KPMG survey found
that most tourismlenders
placed “place more emphasis
on construction:cost than on -
land, and in‘the case of land,
cost-rather than appraisal val-

ue”. : ms
The survey added: “It was

noted that it is important to

» have a-strong equity partner,

not just in the deal, but with
the resources to come to}the

table again if something goes -

wrong.

“When it comes to pushing
the financing deal through,
pre-sales help but do not solve
the equity position.”

Tourism industry lenders
viewed trade unions injthe

"Hotélsector and the ability to

recruit skilful staff as among
the greatest operational risks
to the industry.

“Banks consistently indicat-
ed that employee trade unions
and recruiting skilful, pleasant
and efficient staff continue to
be a problem,” the KPMG sur-
vey said.

“One bank even went on to
say that part of this problem
is that most often the cream of
the talent ina community is
attracted to other industries.”

Other risk factors cited by
those surveyed included hur-
ricane insurance and.coverage;
maintaining properties and fill-
ing their rooms; competition;
construction cost increases; and
a reliance on tour operators.

The KPMG survey found
that lenders to the industry
believed the Cricket World
Cup, scheduled to be held
from March-April 2007, was
viewed as generating strong
short-term growth andi proyid-
ing wider publicity for the
Caribbean. {

Market |

The conference market was
also seen as having great
potential for the Caribbéan
tourism industry, having ‘the
ability to attract visitors tothe
region during the off-season.

Terrorism-related problems
in the Middle East were also
seen by financiers as a poten-
tial opportunity that the
Caribbean could exploit to
attract more tourists.

Simon Townend, partner
and the Bahamas-based head
of KPMG’s corporate finance
operations in the Caribbean,
said: “The general consensus
for lenders providing loans is
that the short to medium-term
outlook is positive.

“Short-term optimism is pri-
marily because of the 2007
Cricket World Cup, with sev-
eral Caribbean countries host-
ing matches. Key opportuni-
ties also include increases in
several conferences in the
region and optimism about the
condo hotel and fractional
ownership sectors.” 1

The survey covered banks

‘ with more than $2.5 billion in

exposure to the Caribbean
tourism industry, including
Butterfield Bank, Deutsche
Bank, First Caribbean ‘Inter-
national Bank, Royal Bank of
Canada, Scotiabank and
RBTT. Wet

ALTHOUGH THEY LOOK A BIT

1. One notrump. You have to be
careful when partner makes a mini-
mum response to your takeout dou-
ble, because he does not promise any
high-card strength for his bid and
may have a very poor hand.

The one-notrump bid in this
sequence shows about 17 to 19
points and so accurately reflects the
values you hold. It would be wrong
to bid one spade, which would prom-
ise at least a five-card suit and imply
greater distributional values.

2. Two hearts. There is no obliga-
tion on the part of the doubler to bid
again after his partner makes a mini-
mum response. Hence, your raise to
two hearts indicates extra values —
usually, 16 té 18 points. The raise
suggests to partner that there is a pos-
sibility of game despite his discour-
aging response.

NOINETTE John-

son probably has
the easiest job of any incom-
ing president.

She takes over the’ New
Providence Women's Basket-
ball Association from Kim-
berley Rolle.

But the work that was start-
ed four years ago by the initial
president, Mynez Cargill-
Sherman, has made it quite
easy for anybody to continue
in that role.

So when Johnson begins
her tenure, she shouldn't have
to worry about too much of
the logistics because the
NPWBA has been the envy
of all the other leagues since
its inception.

Yet Johnson should be
comforted by the fact that
Cargill-Sherman is back after
a year and a half hiatus to
deal with her family commit-
ments.

Cargill-Sherman will serve
as the third vice president in
Johnson's cabinet, so she will
be able to advise the new
president on just how to con-
tinue at the pace that has
already been set.

And, to top it off, Johnson

will have the services of three

St Paul’s win
BSC men’s
championship

@ BASKETBALL

ST. PAUL'S have won the
Baptist Sports Council's
2006 men's championship
crown.

Making their debut in the
league, St. Paul's out-played
Evangelistic Centre 53-37 to
complete a two-game sweep
in the series last week at the
Baillou Hills Sports Com-
plex.

It was the second straight
‘time that Evangelistic Cen-
tre played in the final.

Daron McKenzie scored a
game high 16 and Leron
Colebrooke had 13, includ-
ing three three-pointers in
the win. Ed White and
Tunde Davis both con-
tributed 10 for St. Paul's.

Lamont Bain and Harry
Sands came up with 11
points apiece for Evangelis-
tic Centre. Keton Hanna
chipped in with eight.

On Saturday, the BSC will
attempt to crown its 15-and-
under division to complete
the season.

Saturday past, both of the
best-of-three series were
split, forcing a third and
deciding game on Saturday
before the championship's
best-of-three series got
underway.

In one half of the semifi-
nals, Golden Gates won the
opener 19-13, but First Bap-
tist bounced back to take
game two, 19-17. The other
half of the draw saw St.
Paul's nip Faith United 14-
13 in game one, but Faith
United rallied back for a 16-
11 win.

Here's a summary of those
games played:

Faith United 16, St. Paul's
11: Mario Dean pumped in a
game high 10 points to sin-
gle-handedly pull Faith Unit-
ed even in the series. Charles
Walker and Reynold Butler
both scored four.

First Baptist 19, Golden
Gates 17: Edmund Curtis hit
the game's winning basket to
finish with five points in
First Baptist’s win as they
evened the series. Donero
Balfour led the way with a
game high eight. Shearo
Nixon scored six points in
the loss.

St. Paul's 14, Faith United
13: Patrick Brice scored six ©
points, including the game
winning basket, to lead St.
Paul's to the nail-biting vic-
tory. Mario Dean scored sev-
en in the loss. ;

Golden Gates 19, First
Baptist 13: Rocco Fernander
scored five points and
Shearo Nixon had four in the
win for Golden Gates as
they opened the series with a
bang.

Donero Balfour came up
with six and Edmond Curits
added five in the loss.

Many people will probably
say that, because it's a female
league, the men should not
get involved. But it was evi-
dent from the make up of the

league, that there was a place *

for the men.

Anthony Swaby served the
association well behind the
scenes and J think he deserves
a pat on the back and a hand-
shake for his contributions.

Maybe Johnson and her
executives might see fit to go
even further and award him
in amore tangible way.

But the NPWBA should

IBF DECISION

At the International Base-
ball Federation's executive
meeting held over the week-
end at the Nassau Beach

Hotel, it was noted that the:

body has decided to continue
to endorse Jim Wood's presi-
dency of the Bahamas Base-
ball Association.

They have every right to do
that because he still holds the
rights to the governing body
of the sport, as recognised by
both the Bahamas Olympic
Association and the Ministry
of Youth, Sports and Hous-
ing.

But while he can come out
of the initial meeting held in
the Bahamas smiling from ear
to ear, he and his executive
body should not rest on their
laurels because. there's
still a lot more work to be
done.

The rift that has rocked the
sport for more than two
decades has to be resolved
once and for all and all the
fragmented pieces put back
together again.

The mere fact that there is a
Bahamas Baseball Federation
that exists with members com-
ing from all of the islands
associated with baseball says
that there is a problem within
the BBA.

And, until the dispute is
over, it won't make that much
of a difference on the local
scene what the international
body thinks about Wood
being at the helm.

It's time for the healing
process to begin.

THE Bahamas Basketball Federation
(BBF) is planning another action packed
weekend, as they make final preparations
to host the national championship for men.

The 1ith annual nations! champi-
onships, named afivr the late
‘Bunny’ Levarity, will be held at the Sir
Kendal Isaacs Gymnasium over a two day
period.

Unlike the females’ national champi-
onship, in which only two teams partici-
pated, the men’s tournament is expected to
host the championship teams in both divi-
sions from New Providence, Grand
Bahama, Abaco, Eleuthera, Exuma aiiu,
for the first time since the tournament’s
inception, a team from Cat Island will take
part.

According to Larry Wilson, vice presi-
dent for the tournament, play is expected

, to be evenly matched with New Provi-

dence’s division I team looking to get
revenge.

Wilson said: “After having to delay the
tournament we can truly say that the play
level will be at an all time high. All the

players are excited andr ynlay so we

“It certainly will be nice
to get back with the guys — |
even if I’m late — and get
everybody in the same
frame of mind,” said Lewis,
a tanned Californian with
the best left foot on the U.S.

‘team.

With the World Cup.in
Germany starting June 9,
Lewis again is torn between
his English club and his
country. Four years ago it
was Fulham FC; this time
it’s Leeds United.

Leeds, which plays at the
level just below the Premier
League, is hoping to win a
playoff and gain promotion
next season to the top flight
of English soccer.

The club faces Preston.
North End on Friday and,
again on Monday with the.
survivor of the two games
— on aggregate score — |
playing Watford or Crystal
Place on May 21. The prize:
a move up to the Premier
League which, in American
terms, would be like Triple-
A baseball team the Toledo
Mud Hens getting promot-
ed to the American League.

“T’ve spent the entire sea-
son trying to get to that
point and I-would never
jeopardize that,” Lewis said.
“I could be a bit late, but
there will still be enough
time in between to get
ready for the World Cup .
finals.”

Two other players will be: ;
absent when training camp |
opens May 10 in Cary, N.C.’
Goalkeeper Kasey Keller:
and defender Steve Cherun
dolo will both still be play-
ing in Germany’s Bundesli-’

a.

Those two will be starting
at familiar positions.

Not Lewis. A left-side
midfielder, he’s being
switched to left back. Strong
on the ball and adept at
crossing passes to strikers,
he’ll now have to defend
and generate offense from
the back.

“T felt it was worth giving
him the opportunity to see:
if he could fit in there,”
coach Bruce Arena said.’ :./')-
“He has to understand how?

Thinking defense — not’
offense — will be a switch.’

. “It’s certainly different,’
and I’d be the first to say it’s
not something I am doing? :
week in, week out,” Lewis:
said. “But it’s an adjustment
a lot players have made.”: * : °

Moving to English club, . .
soccer in 2000, and then
reaching the World Cup
quarterfinals four years ago,
are career milestones for
Lewis, who figures to be
playing in his last World
Cup.

“Once we drew Mexico in
the round of 16, to go on
and beat one of our biggest
rivals — I’m not sure Pll
ever match that feeling,”
said Lewis, practicing at
Leeds’ training facility in ©
north central England.

“The last five or 10 min-
utes were amazing as we got
closer and closer and we
realized we were going to
win. Going to the quarterfi-
nals and knocking out Mex-
ico was a double whammy.”

The U.S. lost to Germany
in the quarters.

This time, the Americans
have been drawn in Group
E, which includes Italy, the
Czech Republic and Ghana.
Though few put stock in

Cadeau saves

Crime Stoppers

@ BASKETBALL
By KELSIE JOHNSON ~
Junior Sports Reporter

RONNIE Cadeau became the
saviour for the Police Crime Stop-
pers on Tuesday night, giving his
team another fighting chance at
the New Providence Basketball
Association (NPBA) division II
championship title.

With his team’s backs against -

the wall, Cadeau blazed to a game
high 42 points to lead the Crime
Stoppers to a 102-95 victory over
the Quick Kick Rockets.

Rockets, who had snatched
game one from the Crime Stop-
pers, came out blazing, connecting
on all their shot attempts.

The quick start brought confi-
dence to the team, who were cer-
tain they would dispose of the
Crime Stoppers and clinch their
first championship title. a

Ronald Glinton had the hot
hands for the Rockets in the
opening minutes of the game, but
after scoring the team’s first seven
points, the Crime Stoppers quick-
ly put a stop to his actions, leaving
Christopher Turnquest and Ter-
rance Brown to take charge.

Turnquest scored his first two
points from the free throw line,
while Brown made his connec-
tions from the outside.

But Brown and Turnquest’s hot
hands weren’t sufficient to close
the gap the Crime Stoppers had.
established.

Although the Crime Stoppers
headed into the second quarter
with a four point lead, the quarter
belonged to Cadeau.

The Crime Stoppers closed the
second quarter by scoring 29
points, Cadeau accounted for 13
of the points, while point guard
Carlose Thompson ended with
five points and 10 assists. ;

By the end of the first half the

Crime Stoppers had a nine point
lead.
Trying to take the team’s load
on his back once again, Turnquest
led the Rockets to a 9-0 run‘in
the opening minutes of the third.
quarter. ia

The Rockets would lose fire:

after closing the gap, but the |

Crime Stoppers were just getting
things started:

Playing a triangle game, which
included Cadeau, Thompson and
Jamal Rose, the Crime Stoppers
jumped back to an eight point
lead which eventually opened up
to the biggest lead of the game, 25
points. The team held the Rockets
to just 17 points in that quarter.

Thompson said: “We came out
playing great defence and hard so.
that’s how we cathe out on top.
“We can win the next game if we
come out playing with the same
intensity. lg

“All we have to do is play hard,
as long as we play hard we can
take the win from them. I think
we had more intensity this game
and as time goes on in the final
game we are going to explode on
them.

“The key to us winning the
championships is gelling. Once we
gel we are unstoppable and they
know that. But when we have a
certain few on the team no one
can beat us.” :

After exploding to 29 points in
the third quarter the Crime Stop-
pers held off'the late charge by
the Rockets, closing the game
with 20 points. ;

Top scorer for the Rockets was
Turnquest with 27 points, Kevin
Fox had 11. , :

Chipping in for the win over
the Rockets was Rose: with 26
points. ;

The third and decisive game
will be played at 8pm at the Sir
Kendal Isaacs today.

@ VOLLEYBALL
By KELSIE JOHNSON
Junior Sports Reporter

THREE times proved.to
be. a charm for the St
Augustine's Big Red
Machines junior.girls, as
they captured their third
consecutive Bahamas
Association of Indepen-
dent Schools Sports
(BAISS) volleyball title.

Having to battle the

’ Prince William Falcons in a

one shake championship
game proved to be a little
strenuous for the team, but
at the end of the match the
Big Red Machines would
come chugging through
with a 25-16, 21-25 and 15-
13 victory.

Knowing that they need-
ed to make a move on the
Falcons early in the first
set, the Big Red. Machines
came with a plan in mind,
and that was to keep the
ball out of the hands of
Falcons’ deadliest player,
Q'Jannis Wilson.

With Wilson starting in
the front court for her
team, the Big .Red
Machines were able to get
three unanswered points

from the services line.
Serving it up was captain

Vanricka Rose.

Fuel

The three points would
fuel the Big Red Machines'
engine and, before the Fal-
cons could call time-out to
adjust their court, the team
had established a 14-9 lead.

But the: Falcons-didn’t
come this far to allow the
Big Red Machines to run -
over them. Assisting Wil-
son with some big point

-breaking hits was Daniqua
-Sherman.

Although the hits would

come every so often from

the duo, the thought of the
girls connecting with the
ball concerned the Big Red
Machines' players.

Rose said: "We wanted
to get to an early start
because we knew if we had
allowed them to come back
into the game we would be
trading points and anything
could have happened once
we did that. So, in the first
set, we played great

, defence and executed like

we were supposed to. Even
though Quey was getting
her hits we stayed focused.
* “But in the second set we
just lost momentum and
started focusing on Quey
and her hits. We weren't
supposed to do that if we
wanted to win.

“All we needed to do
was continue on from the
first set and we could have

swept them."

Wilson became a force to
reckon with in the second
set, destroying the Big Red
Machines from all angles
of the court. eet

Her dominance would
help the Falcons take the
second set.

Wilson said: "I believe
we played great today but
we were just lacking a few
things. All we needed to do
is make sure the ball was
over and let them make the
mistakes but we didn't.

"They have a good team,

together longer than us.
We tried to come and pull
off an upset but it didn't
work."

The Big Red Machines
were able to adjust just in
time in the final set as the
Falcons made one last push
at the title.







Sherman was able to
bring the team within one
from the service line, but
that's as close as the Big
Red Machines would allow
them to come. Rose would
step back to the service
line to seal the victory for
her team.

Dion Bowles
returned to
block seconds
before breakout

‘@ By NATARIO
‘MCKENZIE

PRISON surveillance footage
shows that officer Dion Bowles
stopped at two particular pris-

~ ons cells and made what may
have been an exchange with an
inmate during his inspection just
seconds before the January 17
prison break occurred.

Little was shown on the pris-
on's surveillance video that was
submitted to the Coroners court
yesterday as to how officer
Bowles was killed. What has
been made confirmed is that
officer Bowles, although accom-
panied by another officer during
an inspection at 10.30 on the
night of January 16, was alone
when he returned at 4.10 on the
morning of January 17.

The video recording of a cam-
era positioned in cell block C of.
the prison shows that officer
Dion Bowles returned to the
block at 4.10 am on January 17
and made what appeared to be
particular stops at two prison
cells which were further away
from the immediate scope of
the surveillance camera. The
footage shows that as officer
Bowles approached one of the
cells, the one which appeared
to have been to his right, the
inmate in that cell stretched out
his arm. Bowles appeared to
stop at that cell only momen-
tarily then turned to walk across
to the opposite cell where he

stood for a few seconds
although it could not be seen
what he did at that time. When
he turned back to the first*cell;
he hesitated briefly and then as
he walked up.the corridor,
towards the camera, he appar-
ently handed something to the
inmate whose hand was still
outstretched, At approximately
4,11 am the lights went out and
seconds later two persons could
be seen scampering across the
corridor. One of the persons
had on what appeared to be
shorts, socks and tennis shoes,
while the other appeared to
have on longer trousers. At that
point the footage became par-

- ticularly dark. The video was

already.in black and white and
the images could only be seen
from the waist down. from that
point on. Those. two persons
appeared to go to another cell
and seconds later, a third indi-
vidual, wearing long trousers,
also appeared. All thrée. indi-

viduals ran out of the view of

the camera.
The video was forwarded to
4.25 am, which is when it

appeared that four prison offi- .

cers came onto cell block C and

apparently discovered officer’
~Bowles' body. One of the offi-
cers had a flashlight and the.

others appeared to lift Bowles
out of the cell block.

MINISTER of Agriculture and Marine
Resources Leslie Miller pushed for the forma-
tion of a investigative group to gain further
information into the operations at the US
AUTEC base in Andros during his address to
the House of Assembly yesterday. ©

The group would be comprised of two rep-
resentatives from the Department of Marine
Resources, two from the BEST Commission,
two from the Public Hospitals Authority, two’
from non-governmental organizations, one from
the Department of Environmental Health Ser-
vices, and one from the Ministry of Foreign
Affairs,

This group Mr Miller said, would draw exper-
tise from outside the public sector, both local-

School break-in
‘could have resulted
in recall of exams’

By DENISE MAYCOCK
Tribune Freeport Reporter

FREEPORT - A recent break-in at the Jack
Hayward High School could have resulted in a
nationwide recall of national exams and an addi-
tional $2 million in cost to the government this
week, according to Ministry. of Education offi-
cials.

Lionel Sands, assistant director: of education
with the Testing and Evaluation in New Provi-
dence, was sent to Freeport on Wednesday after
being informed by education officials in Freeport ©
of a break-in at the school,

“We don’t know how the break-in occurred or
who is responsible,” said Mr Sands. “Our main
concern is to ensure that the examination itself was .
not impacted negatively.”

Just under 6,000 students throughout the coun-
try are preparing to sit the BJC and BGCSE
exams, which begins on Friday,

GOVERNMENT is using the

Police Service Act to employ PLP =~

“cronies” at the expense. of the

safety and security of the Bahami-

an people, High Rock FNM MP

Kenneth Russell claimed yester-
‘day.

During the morning session of
the House of Assembly, a Bill to
enact the Police Service Act was
debated with heated words being
exchanged between government
and the official opposition.

During one of these verbal
assaults, Mr Russell’s intelligence

questioned by Prime Minister

Perry Christie.
After Deputy Prime Minister
Cynthia Pratt introduced the Bill,

Mr Russell denounced it as mak- .

ing no real contribution other
than simply renaming the Royal
Bahamas Police Force to the
Royal Bahamas Police “Service”.
“Seeing that there are no new
policing incentives, High Rock is
truly concerned about where our
Bahamaland is headed,” said Mr
Russell. “Will we end up like oth-
er Caribbean countries where the
criminal element has taken over?
Or will good men do the right
_ thing to ensure a society where

Association members went to the
House of Assembly Wednesday
to express their displeasure at
Government’s attempt to debate
and pass a Bill that affects officers
who were never consulted on
some of its provisions.

While members of the House
were filing in to start debate on
the Police Act, Executive Vice
Chairman of‘the Police Staff
Association, Inspector Bradley
Sands, and several plain clothed
officers stood outside holding a
press conference, hoping to draw
attention to the discrepancies in
the Police Act that has them con-
cerned.

“If the government wants to
table an Act that deals with the
junior officers of the police
force,” said Inspector Sands,

AS THE next general elections
approach, the Christie government
reported its progress to nation after
four years in government....-....-

On Tuesday night, Mr Christie
moderated a PLP mini-convention
at the Wyndham Nassau Resort,
where one. by one, his ministers
gave account of what has taken
place in their respective ministries.

Mr Christie pointed out that the
convention was not a night for
boasting, but a time for them to
“pause in our journey so that we
can take stock of where we are in
the implementation of ‘Our Plan’
for a more prosperous Bahamas, a
safer Bahamas, a better Bahamas
for all of people.” ;

“As we had throughout our
campaign, we pledged to be a gov-
ernment for all Bahamians and
declared that no one need harbour
any fear. of victimisation under a
government led by Perry Christie —
so said, so done. F

“We pledged that integrity
would be the watchword of our,
administration and that we would
serve the Bahamian people hon-
estly, unselfishly and tirelessly — so
said, so done,” he said.

Mr Christie went on to point
what he said were several more
accomplishments achieved during
his time in office. These included:

e The restoration of budgetary
and fiscal discipline to the man-
agement of the nation’s finances .

° The creation of affordable
public housing.

e The laying of foundations for a a
programme of national health
insurance.

@ By KARIN HERIG
Tribune Staff Reporter

MORE than 100 employees.
of‘the Water and Sewerage
Corporation have filed a com-
plamt in protest of what they
claim was an “unfair promotion
exercise.’

Speaking on behalf of the
employees, former president of
the Bahamas Utilities Services
Allied) Workers Union
(BUSAWU) Huedley Moss,
said yesterday that the corpo-
ration has been given until Fri-
day to respond to the action
before the workers take the sit-
uation “to the next level.”

“These 100 employees have
collectively filed a class action
grievance with the WSC. This
came about as a result of an
unfair promotion exercise that
has take place at the WSC,” he
said.

Mr Moss said that employees
feel that the promotion exer-
cise, which took place in Feb-
ruary of this year, ignored the
plight of some 45 “hardwork-
ing and honest workers of the
WSC.”

“Primarily because in 2004,
the past union president of the
BUSAWU initiated a promo-
tion exercise for 80 per cent of
the WSC workforce. The idea
was to promote all members of
the non-management bargain-
ing unit. And so the (recent)
promotion should as a mini-
mum have covered the 20 per
cent not promoted previously,”
he said.

However, the former union
president said that the second
promotion exercise included
many persons who had already
been promoted in 2004.

“You have 56 persons who
received two promotions within
12:months. There are some 45
employees who did not benefit



MORE people around the
world trust the media more
than their own governments,
a new international poll has
revealed.

Although the Bahamas was
not included in the survey, per-
sons interviewed by The Tri-
bune said they believe the
same to be true of the Bahami-
an public.

A survey conducted with
10,230 participants in 10 coun-
tries for the BBG@iRéiitérs and
the US. think tank The Media
Centre, revealed that on.aver-
age, 61 per cent of people trust
the press more than govern-
ments.

Veteran journalist and for-
mer Cabinet Minister Sir
Arthur Foulkes said that
although it‘is difficult to esti-
mate what’kind of results such
a poll would generate in the
Bahamas, he believes that the
majority, of people would also
vote in ‘favour of trusting the
media above the government.

“Especially at this moment
in time I believe that Bahami-
ans would probably trust the
media more,” he said.

Attorney Fayne Thompson
agreed with this assessment.

“Bahamians are very cyni-

cal when it comes to their .

politicians. Me personally, I

and I trust them more than

We must not forget that what-
ever comes from the govern-
ment has been handled by
their spin doctors,” he said.

In light’ of PLP chairman
Raynard Rigby’s “cautioning”

of the press last week, Sir
Arthur said that he feels that .

the Bahamian people seem. to
better understand the impor-
tance of the media than politi-
cians do.

“As the saying goes, when

striving for the survival of ©

democracy and one ‘has the
choice between getting rid of
the government or the media,
then ‘it is always safer to dis-
pense of the government.

“I think Bahamians under-

Weyer Ve



stand very well what the role of
the media is. It is the media’s

job to report the facts. And the’

public is entitled to access to
the facts,” he said. -

Sir Arthur said he feels that
many politicians today seem
to take criticism too personal-
ly.

“When you enter into poli-

tics you should know that crit-
icism comes with the territo-
ry. It’s not something that
should be railed against. Politi-
cians should grow thicker
skins. .
“T think of all of the govern-
ing party, Mr Christie actually
understands this the best,” he
said.

Sir Arthur and Mr Thomp-
son also both agreed that the
Bahamian media should be
even more vigorous in keep-
ing the public informed about
the country’s business.

Results of the poll varied
across the range of countries
surveyed.

Trust in journalists was high-
est in Nigeria, where 88 per

cent of the people choose the °

media above the government.

In countries such as Indone-
sia and India, more than 80 per
cent said. that they trust the
media more than they do their
governments.

Recalling Mr Mitchell’s political past

IT IS OFTEN said that it depends upon
where a man sits as to where he stands. That is
particularly true of many politicians in the
Bahamas — especially those who have fre-
quently changed their party loyalties.

We are often amused at how passionately
protective some of them now are of the memo-
ry of the late Sir Lynden Pindling — there even
seems to be an attempt in certain quarters to
grant him sainthood. We have no problem with
that if that is what his followers want. The only
problem we have is the hypocrisy that goes with
it in many cases— especially among those whose
opinions bend according to their political for-
tunes.

Early on in his political career we took the
measure of Sir Lynden. Over the years, culmi-
nating with the Commission of Inquiry into
drug smuggling, he gave us no reason to change
our opinion.

This week Fred Mitchell’s former website,
in its Comment of the Week, wants Tribune
managing editor John Marquis’ work permit
cancelled because “he has defamed the found-
ing father of the country Lynden Pindling call-
ing him a petty crook.” This is not true of
course. Mr Marquis has never called Sir Lynden
a “petty crook.” Over the years we have heard
members and former members of Sir Lynden’s
own PLP make such remarks, but never Mr
Marquis, neither privately nor in print.

Maybe,-. the writer. of “Comment of the
week” as he is writing from Mr Mitchell’s for-
mer web site, would like to give an opinion on
Mr Mitchell’s dismissal of Sir Lynden as the
“head slickster of the PLP at his slick best”.
We would also like that writer, as he did in the
case of Mr Marquis, tell us what should have
been done about Mr Mitchell at that time.

. Remember both of them were exercising their
democratic right of free speech — or is it to be

suggested that when a foreigner is employed ~

in this country he must compromise one of his
essential freedoms, while a Bahamian’s remains
intact?

Mr Mitchell, who started his political career
in the PLP, became disenchanted and left that
party to form the PDF. During those years he
was scathing of Sir Lynden.

In September, 1991 he was particularly upset
with the legislation introduced by the PLP to,
according to Mr Mitchell, “limit free speech.”

The legislation was introduced to curb
Bahamians’ political activities in the 1992 elec-
tion.

Mr Mitchell was particularly annoyed by a
provision that would limit a person’s right to
heckle at meetings, and which would compel

persons, identified by the meeting chairman as
trouble makers, to give their names to the police
or face arrest.

“It is strange that the PLP now seeks to lim-
it the very activities which they used as an oppo-
sition party, and make them illegal. No person
in opposition should support or respect these
provisions,” he said.

In the early days of the PLP their “goon
squads” were so out of control that people were
injured, some ending up in hospital during an
election campaign. It was only when these same
tactics were turned on-them that the PLP tried
to protect themselves by legislation. This was the
legislation, to which Mr Mitchell quite rightly
objected.

He reserved his greatest scorn for the pro-
posed Broadcast Council. “This is Pindling’s
trickery at its best,” he said.

This Council was to oversee the work of
ZNS as it related to news coverage at the station
and to the broadcast rules.

“The official Opposition should not partici-
pate in or support this total charade. It is a trap
designed to get them to participate in the biased
coverage of politicians which is evidenced on
ZNS during and before elections,” he said. Mr
Mitchell knew whereof he spoke, because he
was a part of the ZNS team for many of Sir
Lynden’s elections.

He then sneered at the PLP backbenchers’
révolt — “out of some misplaced sense af
nationalism,” he said — at not wanting Com-

monwealth observers here for the 1992 elec-

tion.

“Their view,” Mr Mitchell said, “was that
they did not want foreigners coming and look-
ing at Bahamian democracy. This is nationalis-
tic nonsense,” he said. “If you have nothing to
hide, then you should have no objection to any-
one coming and having a look at your electoral
process.’

So why should Mr Marquis, who was just
reporting the opinions of Bahamians about their
parliamentarians, be driven from the country?
We can assure the PLP that his pen would be
more vitriolic from abroad. He knows this coun-
try and its chief actors well.

Today Mr Mitchell is not only PLP, but he is

‘a member of the PLP government’s Cabinet.

Today, he sees the Bahamas from a different
position than he did in 1991 and so his stand on
various subjects has changed.

That is why most Bahamians don’t take
politicians seriously. They have to look out of
‘4e window when they get up in the morning to
see which way the wind is blowing to know how
some of their politicians’ windmills are tilted.

EDITOR, The Tribune.

I AM a Bahamian who is as
fed up with the policies of this
government as I was of the last
administration. It is thirty-three
years since independence and
we as a people are more depen-
dent today than ever before (we
can’t even feed ourselves, more
than 80 per cent of our food is
imported). On all fronts of our
development we have allowed
the wrong people to seize pow-
er and claim this-as God’s holy
work but as the bible says: “By.
their fruits ye shall know them.”

The politicians. have reward-
ed mediocrity, and political loy-
alty and at the same time
ostracised any talent that was
not in awe of them. One need

only look at the appointment

to the boards of this country to
see the same recycled faces
whom no one elected to power.
The political atmosphere has
created an insatiable thirst for
mammon, corruption is every-
where. Is this country really bet-
ter off than it was five or 10 or
even 30 years ago?

We have elected into power
people with no vision for the
future of this nation. We are
now again poised to elect anoth-
er government to run this coun-
try for the next five years. If we
are left only to decide between
the PLP and FNM, then we’d
have no real choices. There is
no leader among them with a
vision or plan they actually
intend to carry out. They are
only interested in holding pow-
er, collecting perks and passing
on the responsibility of govern-
ing with one excuse after the
other. If Bahamians really think

about the future of this coun- —

try they could not possibly
endorse either of these parties.
Yes, they will promise you the
sky before the election and
before the celebration dust is
settled the voters will be back to
their sorry lives complaining
about the same old issues of ille-
gal immigration, crime, poor
education results. Nothing

would have changed. The victor:

would have got what he wanted,
licences to waste the public
purse for five more years unin-
terrupted and the loser defeated
and demotivated to fight on —
because it was never about the
issues only about winning to
control the purse and power.

direction this country seems
headed in? Do you believe that

‘In defence of:

EDITOR, The Tribune.

Y

AFTER reading the article “Young Man’s View” by Adfian
Gibson.in your April 28th edition, I felt compelled to respond. I am
an alumnus of The College of The Bahamas (COB), having grad-
uated in 1987. I would wish to state emphatically that this young
man and.all COB alumni should feel proud of their COB degree.

I surely.am.

it

During my tenure at the College of the: Bahanias! we e too were
beset by controversy and I remember quite vividly the chant,
“Roker playing poker with our future” and the march’to Bay
Street headed by then COBUS president Ian Strachan, now Drilan
Strachan, a lecturer at the College of The Bahamas. This brouha-
ha was brought about after a few of the lecturers and in particular,
Ms Belgrave, were given 24 hours in which to leave the country. In
fact, it was noised abroad on the campus that immigration officials
had entered the classroom in the middle of the lecture. This, of

_course, added more fuel to an already burning fire.

Therefore, Mr Gibson, xenophobia is not new to The, College of
The Bahamas nor is it a lost fixture in our society. ‘ ite

I would urge Mr Gibson to step proudly when the time comes to
accept his degree and to toss his tassel from one side.of his;mor-
tarboard to the next signifying his completion of a level of acade-
mic attainment that can rival most tertiary institutions worldyide.

The events or perceived events at the College of The Bahamas
are just the noise in the market, your degree is the price of the fish
and truth be told, the value of your degree borne out of your GOB

experience is priceless!

GOVERNMENT is looking
. into removing the moratorium
on hiring in the public service.

Foreign Affairs and Public
Service Minister Fred Mitchell
said that it may be possible to
create some 1,200 public ser-
vice jobs within the next year.

“The idea will be that those
people who do not have the
basic qualifications, which is the

Roberts predicts to

earn $300 million this year



Hi BRADLEY Roberts



By RUPERT MISSICK Jr
Chief Reporter

THE Bahamas Telecom-
munications Company will
earn $300 million in revenues
this year for the first time in
history, Works and Utilities
Minister Bradley told dele-
gates at the PLP “mini con-
vention” on Tuesday night.

The corporation’s profits, he
said are steadily rising under
the watch of his government.

BTC net profit for the year
ended December 31, 2005,
totaled.$ 34,533,000 compared
to $8,340,000 in 2004.

This he said, was notwith-
standing the major revenue
loss as a result of the unwel-
come use of voice-over Inter-
net protocol schemes.

VoIP, is a technology that
allows you to make telephone
calls using a broadband Inter-
‘net connection instead of a
regular phone line.

capital punishment is lawful
in the Bahamas,” she told par-
ty supporters. :

She also emphasised the
new Swift Justice initiative,
which is geared towards the
prompt capture and punish-
ment of criminals.

Last month, Mrs Maynard-
Gibson launched a pilot pro-

‘gramme for the initiative, as a

first step in her mission to
improve the efficiency ofthe
slow justice system.

The initiative was also
designed to strengthen trans-
parency and accountability,

_she had said.
_. As aresult of the pilot pro-
gramme, it was determined

that weekly meetings should
be held to ensure that forensic
witnesses are properly
briefed, notified and in place
to give their evidence at the
appropriate time.

The minister said at the
time that these meetings will
also allow for co-ordination
and planning well in advance
of trials.

During her convention
speech, Mrs Maynard-Gibson
said: “All of the stakeholders
are on board. The police are

companies like Vonage which
offers a flat rate for calls to the
US or Canada.

Bahamians have turned to
these services in many
instances because of what they
view as BTC’s high long dis-
tance rates.

However, Mr Roberts point-
ed out that since he has
become the minister responsi-
ble for BTC, the government
has reduced international long
distance rates by up to 70 per
cent and has reduced domestic
long distance rates by up to 55
per cent.

“We now pay interest on
security deposits at BTC and
BEC for the first time in the
history of these government
corporations. May I also add
that for the first time in the
history of BEC, the PLP gov-

ernment reduced the basic

rates on electricity across the
board between 10 per cent and
17 per cent and it is my under-
standing that more reductions



ate to come,” the minister said.

BTC, Mr Roberts said, is in
the process of connecting all
the major islands of the
Bahamas with $66 million
worth of fiber optic cables.

Government has also
installed cellular services in
Grand Cay, Moorse Island and
Harbour Island for the first
time.

More than $35 million, Mr
Roberts said, was spent.to
deploy GSM cellular services
in New Providence and Grand
Bahama..

He said that an additional
$14 million is being spent in
Abaco, $1 million in Bimini
and $6 million in Exuma.

It is expected that $30 mil-
lion more will be spent to com-
plete work in the Faumly
Islands.

“In addition, BTC last year
paid out more than $15 mil-
lion in commissions to resellers
of GSM and TDMA prepaid
cards,” Mr Roberts said.

NEW legislation will trans-
form the Bahamian police force
—which is steeped in strong colo-
nial paramilitary tradition — into
a modern, service-oriented police
department, Deputy Prime Min-
ister Cynthia Pratt told the
House of Assembly yesterday.

Mrs Pratt said the proposed
Police Service Act would
improve the openness, trans-
parency and accountability of
the police department — to
enable it to better discharge its
mandate.

Also included are improved
terms of service for police offi-
cers, including benefits in the
event of an officer being injured
or killed in the line of duty.

In addition, section three of
the draft Bill seeks to change
the name of the Royal Bahamas
Police, Force to the Royal
Bahamas Police Service.

“The name change is more
than symbolic. It embodies the
fundamental cultural shift of the
organisation’s objective to pro-
vide a service to the Bahamian
people without invocation of
fear, of force or authority,” the
deputy prime minister said.

The proposed law also pro-
vides for the appointment of an
external inspector to be paid
with public funds, whose func-
tion will be to report to the min-
ister on the efficiency and effec-
tiveness of the management of
the service.

“This is a novel provision. It
provides the minister with statu-
tory authority to seek a non-
police inspection of a matter
affecting the service,” Mrs Pratt
said, ,

The existing legislation that
governs the police department,
the deputy prime. minister
pointed out, was enacted in
1965 — at the tail-end of the
Bahamas’ colonial experience.

“Essentially the Act bears the
character of the norms and

mores of a colonial environ-

ment. Today is anew Bahamas
with a new Bahamian.

“They are the children of
independence — free, better
educated, better informed,
more expressive of their opin-
ions and knowledgeable of their
rights,” Mrs Pratt said.

It is therefore of great impor-
tance that the legislative frame-

work that governs the police

department ensures that it
remains relevant to today’s real-

ity,” she added.

“The new Police Service Act

recognises the changes in soci-
ety and recognises the need for
organisations to undergo reform
and change.

“To put it differently, for the
police to be effective in what
they do they must first recog-
nise that they are providing a
service to the people and to the
state. I submit that this‘is ‘a sig-
nificant departure from the phi-
losophy in the existing Act,”
Mrs Pratt said.

The process of becoming a
service-oriented institution
requires a paradigm shift in the
ethos of the institution, so that it
reflects the philosophy that
effective policing depends on
the co-operation and partner-
ship between the police and the
community. ~

“The draft legislation there-
fore sums up the philosophy
that focuses on the need to
transform the institution,
steeped in a strong paramilitary
tradition, into a modern service
oriented-police department with
highly trained, technologically-
driven, skilled and equipped

personnel called upon to take .

greater responsibility in the
management and decision mak-
ing process and personnel and
corporate ownership of the suc-

, cess of the, organisation,” Mrs....J
Pratt said. .

Dr Nottage aims for NHI legislation



to be passed sometime this summer

m@ By DENISE MAYCOCK
Tribune Freeport Reporter

FREEPORT - Minister of
Health Dr Bernard Nottage said
he intends to have legislation
enabling the National Health

' Insurance passed in parliament

sometime this summer and ready
for possible implementation by
the end of 2006.

Speaking at Bethel Baptist
Church in Eight Mile Rock yes-
terday, Mr Nottage told the Zion
United Baptist Convention that
NHI is one of the most important
social initiatives that is being
undertaken by the government.

The government is proposing to
raise $235 million, partially
through contributions from citi-
zens, to fund the cost of NHI,
which will allow legal residents in
the country access to comprehen-
sive health care services.

Fund

Contributions to the fund will
be made by employers, employ-
ees, the self-employed, pension-
ers, and the government — which
will contribute on behalf of civil
servants and the poor.

“My focus is to get feqisiation
passed through parliament after

the budget debate sometime in =

July-August.

“And my ministry intends to
have this matter at a point in
December 2006 where we would
then be able to implement it
whenever the government is ready
to do so,” he said.

Dr Nottage noted that efforts

are now underway to put together

a technical advisory group for
NHI, now that the plan’s steering

committee has completed its man-

date.

“We have now moved onto
another phase of the project,” he
explained.

government is ready to do so.”



Minister of Health Dr Bernard N ottage

Dr Nottage stressed that it is
important for everyone in the
Bahamas to know what NHI is
about, how it will benefit them,
and why they should support
it.

He believes that the church is
good way to spread the message.

“The church is the social con-
science of the people and they
understand the concept of caring
for each other and being one’s
brother’s keeper.

“T think the church isan impor-
tant part of our communication,
to let people know what NHI is

all about because a large number.

of people attend churches on a
regular basis.

“And I think it would help us if
pastors and elders understand the
issues so they can provide the sup-
port we need for it to be accepted
by the people,” Dr Nottage
said.

“I think everybody is very inter-
ested and excited about it. In my
discussion with them (church lead-
ers) they are extremely supportive
of this idea of NHI because so
many of them are taxed by their
members for support.”

on Grand Bahama with health.

care professionals and business-

persons, the minister said that

feedback has been positive.

He said: “From the beginning,
we seem to have had the support
of employers even though they
would be required to make an
additional contribution on behalf
of their employees — because
many of them realise that if they
can keep their workers healthy,
productivity on the job would be
better.”

Money

“So even though they may be
paying a little bit more money
they are going to get the return
on their money.

“The intention is that everybody
who is employed belongs to it
because that way the contribution
rate is low and benefits can be
shared with Bveny Ones he
explained.

Employers would be asked to
pay a contribution of 2.65 per cent
of their workers’ salary, employ-
ees would also ‘have to pay 2.65
per cent, and self-employed per-









sons would have to pay the full.
5.3 percent, while pensioners
would pay $1 per day; a provision
which is still under review.

Although health care workers
understand the benefits,. Dr
Bethel stated that the physicians
are a little “wary” about the
objectives that have been set.

“We are working along with

them and I believe ultimately we
will come to an understanding,”
he said.
_ The minister added that the pri-
vate health insurers are also con-
cerned. about how NHI will
impact their business and their
profits.

“We are also working with them
too, but we have an obligation to
provide insurance for everyone,
but they are only able to insure a
small portion of the population
who are able to afford health
insurance — and for us that is not
good enough,” he said.

Insufficient parking was just

Parking, facilities and charter
buses named among concerns



members of the press.

The wharf is the prime spot
for drivers seeking customers
off of cruise ships. As it stands
now however, the lack of park-
ing means that many cab dri-
vers are forced to park on Bay
Street if they want to get cus-
tomers, Mr Sawyer said.

He said that he met with the

Ministry of Transport and Avi- '

ation on many occasions to
voice his concerns about this
situation.

Mr Sawyer claimed that on
March 14 of this year, officials
from the Ministry of Trans-
port and Aviation came to
Festival Place and made sev-
eral promises after hearing the
comments of taxi drivers about
the parking situation.

He added that taxi cab dri-
vers have made representation
to the government for the
improvement of the recreation
facilities at Festival Place and
were promised changes, but
nothing was done.

He also pleaded with the
government to allow taxi oper-
ators who are not carrying pas-
sengers to cross the Paradise
Island bridge toll free.

Mr Sawyers also expressed
his concern about-the activi-
ties of charter bus companies —
which, he claimed, pick up
large groups of passengers,
leaving fewer fares for taxi dri-
vers.

He went on to criticise the
fact that vehicles imported for
use as taxis will cease to be
duty free in 2008.

The One-room Schoolhouse

PART HL

C. I GIBSON, M. W. Gibson,
A. T. Turnquest, J. Burnside, N.
G. M. Major, F. G. S. Morley,
N. Dorsett, G. T. Smith... These
were the masters of the one-
room schoolhouses scattered in
communities throughout the
archipelago. They were so often
noted by just first and middle ini-
tials and surname that it seemed
that they had no given names.
Or, who knows, they may have
kept them from the general pub-
lic; so as to create or preserve
the awe in which the great teach-
ers were held in the days of long
ago when “teacher” was another
term for “honoured elder” and
not a target for hooligans and
armchair politicians. So great was
the esteem of those of this call-
ing, that the term of address was
often just “Teacher”.

But times and attitudes
change. Except for those who by
rare fortune or political favour
had schools named for them,
most of the one-room school-
masters are largely forgotten.
They are enshrined mostly in
fond but failing memories of
those whose lives they touched
directly.

_- In honesty, it must be said that
some are best forgotten, but
many more are eminently worthy
of national record and praise.
‘These were Bahamians and, in
some cases, non Bahamians, who
were posted on islands far away
from their native communities
or even homelands. F. G. S. Mor-
ley came all the way from Eng-
land to teach in South Eleuthera
in 1926. —

yt It was such teachers who pre-
dicted that their charges, though
far away from city lights and
‘amenities, could pass the Cam-
‘bridge Junior and Senior Exam-
‘nations, could reach as high 4s
their courage would stretch, a

q

prediction that often came true in

‘the likes of the hundreds who
‘followed in the footsteps of their

‘uch admired mentors to
‘become teachers and later Min-
4sters of Government, like Liv-
‘ingston Coakley or Ambassadors

slike L. B. Johnson or even Gov-
‘ernor-Generals like Sir Clifford
‘Darling, Sir Henry Milton Taylor
-or Dame Ivy Dumont, nee’ Turn-
‘quest. .

Of social position, many of the

great teachers had little and of
‘money even less, but with nat-
‘ural gifts they were abundantly
» endowed. The great books that

had stood the test of time were

‘constant and treasured compan-

‘ions and the Bahamian teachers
‘of legend could quote their

authors as well as they might a

‘friend whose society they fre-
_quented daily. They played a
' major part in instilling an appre-
“ ciation of heritage and the self-

i esteem, the knowledge and

| appreciation of the right of men
_and women to freedom, good

governance and a place of

_ respect in their own land. At the
, Same time, these “head teach-

ers”, as they were called, knew
and taught that a person’s life
“was not just about rights and get-

ting, but equally about obliga-

: tion to kin, colleague, commu-
: nity and country and, above all,

to God.
Their time was a time when

stories of values and virtues per-

meated the curriculum. The best

' of the head teachers saw it as
‘ their duty to help their pupils see

that the duty to God could only

. be fulfilled, if the obligation to
» others was discharged. One of
' the highest ways of giving back to
- the Almighty was.to fulfill the
' obligation to make the best use
' of the brain, the talents and

hands divinely given. They
instilled the values of self respect,

. Tespect for law, respect for prop-
“erly constituted authority, hon-
i esty and hard work.
' ;sstern Men, who saw no reason
‘fo spare the rod, not if it could
: help to save a young man or
. woman from the path to perdi-

‘tion onto which their feet were so

" given to straying. They seemed to

know more aphorisms, more of

As with the characters from the story

The Secret School, the Bahamas had, and still has,.
the tradition of one-room schoolhouses. Patricia
Glinton-Meicholas, renowned Bahamian author,
shares memories of this tradition, and the role the
schoolhouse played in the life of the community.



better known C. C. Smith. It was
a good tinte for The Bahamas,
if not all Bahamians. Trade in
sponges and pineapples was
thriving and Nassau, the capital,
was about to move into the age
of technology. By the time the
young Eleutheran was fourteen
years old, New Providence had
acquired an undersea cable link
with the United States between

Cable Beach and Jupiter, Flori- |

da. During the same period Hen-
ry Flagler had built his Colonial
Hotel, Nassau had seen its first
car, its first “movie”, first tele-
phone system and first electric
lights. The Royal Bank, of which
Smith would one day become a
client, had also opened its doors
to offer dependable banking ser-
vices. ,

Smith’s early family life had

not been an easy one. His moth- _

er had died when he was very
young and in his early adoles-
cence, he was put in the care of
his maternal uncle N. Dorsett in
a kind of apprenticeship. It.was
hoped that George, as smart a
boy as he was, would become a
teacher, too. And so he did—at
age eighteen and married not
long after in Long Island to a
young woman of the settlement
of Simms, where he had been
assigned by the Board of Edu-
cation. He gathered great learn-
ing along the way. In his youth he
had attended the Boys Central
School like many who went on to
gain fame in the classroom. Boys
Central had, in fact, been estab-
lished for training “assistant
teachers”. In later years, about
1938, he was one. of:a lucky
group who got to do a pro-
gramme at the famed Tuskegee
University.

Colleagues

Like many of his colleagues
posted in what were then called
the “Out Islands”; he would be
posted to an island for a while
and then be reassigned to anoth-
er as needs and vacancies dictat-
ed. During the course of his
career G. T. Smith would come
to know San Salvador, Long
Island, North and Central
Andros, Exuma and, for seven-
teen years, Port Howe, Cat
Island, which was to be his
longest and last official post. A
chart of the birthplaces of his
children could almost constitute
a map of the major islands of the
Bahamian archipelago.

Reassignment for a teacher
meant packing up kith and kin
and taking a sailboat on peril-
filled waters to begin anew in a
new place among strangers.
There was little recourse if the

posting was.not to one’s liking ~

and no question of complaining
about lack of supplies, the
teacher’s residence or the school-
house, no matter their condition.
Moving also separated the head-
master and his family from fast

‘friends and left them counting

on indifferent inter-island mail
to retain ties.

G. T. Smith like many of his
colleagues was a man of all sea-
sons and had to be. They were
responsible for teaching the
whole curriculum. It was a heavy
burden. They knew that their
pupils, unless they became, mon-
itors, would have to leave school
at fourteen. It was teacher’s job
to make certain that young heads
were filled up with as much use-
ful knowledge and as many skills
as they could pack into them.
Like his fellow Eleutherans,
Smith was musical, could read
music with facility and engage in
and teach sight singing, He trea-
sured great literature and books
in general and, when he was not
hard at work, would always be
seen with reading material in
hand.

“Teacher” performed many
roles in the communities in which
he found himself. He was post-
master for the Royal Mail; he
was counselor. He was an
impromptu corrections officer to
whom mothers on their own
brought their boys to be casti-
gated verbally or to be whipped,
when their own fathers were
away working, had died or sim-
ply forsook their responsibilities.
It was Teacher who kept a
barometer and warned of the
“lass falling” signaling the




r



advent of a hurricane and the
need to seek shelter on high
ground. It was he who kept an
almanac and could advise fellow
farmers of the best planting times
for various crops. As the only
public servant resident in most
settlements, it was often he and
his wife, who received visiting
dignitaries, priests and bishops
and the island’s Commissioner.
All of these appearances would
galvanize the teacher’s house-
hold into baking bread and
sweets, killing and cooking the
fatted calf at a moment’s notice,
all out of a natural hospitality
and more than a little desire not
to make a poor showing before
the elevated townsfolk.

Smith would, in one minute,
be rendering first aid in the
absence of resident health care

practitioners, and could turn
round to become the impresario,
the drama and musical coach for
the community’s “programmes”
of which there were a regular
round to mark Christmases,
Empire Days, the King or
Queen’s Birthday and religious
feasts. He was a safety deposit
for valuables and cash where
there was no bank, village scribe

and keeper of records. He was ,

the one who saw that families
got their remittances in respect of
their men’s work on the Con-
tract, by which means they found
employment as migrant labour
in the wartime fields of the Unit-
ed States.
G..T. Smith was an educator
‘by vocation, but an afternoon
and vacation farmer by necessity.
- It was by this means he and oth-

ers like him often covered the
gap between salary and family
needs and thus prevented their
children from going threadbare
or shoeless. He knew great loss.
His first wife died at Arthur’s
Town in childbirth, but it was
also his fortune to meet and mar-
ry a second wife there: Alean
Rowena Smith would remain by

his side for fifty plus years. The .

second Mrs Smith and several of
the Smith children were on
board the Ivalee out of Andros
when this sailing boat sank with-
in sight of Fort Charlotte in the
mid-thirties. The youngest of
them, a babe in arms, did not
reach land alive. The oldest son
was consumed by a sudden and
unrelenting ailment at just 20.
Men of G. T.’s ilk grieved, but
were not broken by adversity.
They took all that came to them
as a part of the grand plan and
did their duty no matter what.

Many left the helm only when.
death, infirmity or official retire-,

ment took them away. In any
case, the teacher’s centrality
greatly decreased as modes of

communication increased and

living on an out island became
less of a trial by ordeal. With the

disappearance of the old guard —

while employment and house-
hold incomes skyrocketed.
Arguably, Grand Bahama is
only keeping afloat today
because of the investments and
economic activity generated
during the time of the FNM.

; nder the FNM, unem-
ployment in Grand

Bahama dropped from 16.9 per
cent in 1992 to 6.4 per cent in
2002; an almost 300 per cent
decline. Grand Bahama’s

years of. FNM dropped from
16.9 per cent in 1992 to below
10 per cent. Grand Bahama’s
unemployment in the first three
years of the PLP rose from 6.4
per cent in 2002 to 9.3 per cent
in 2004. In our first three years
in office, the FNM produced
1,560 jobs in GB while the PLP

420.

published figures from the

and Grand Bahama could not
get any answers out of the gov-
ernment as to what was hap-
pening. Sixteen hundred jobs in
Grand Bahama were hanging |
in the balance and the govern-
ment was in stunned silence.
When the Christie administra-
tion did say something, it sound-
ed more like people out of
office than people in office.
When the hotel restoration
stopped, once again, the

Christie administration was .

silent. Only after workers agi-

government.

Pees with great politi-
cal pressure, the gov-
ernment seemed to panic and
decided to pay off some of Bot-

Even in this they were rocky.

Four years later, not only has

than rise to the challenge and
try to respond to the damage
caused by the hurricanes, which
gave them a breather, the gov-

“then the government should
have done proper consultation
with the junior members of the
force.”

Mr Sands said the Police Staff
- Association Act, which was
passed in 1997, allows the chair-
man of the association, under arti-
cle 61, to make proper represen-
tation to the government, to the
commission, and any other rele-
vant authorities, on all matters
affecting junior officers.

This government, the Inspec-
tor continued, did not seize the
opportunity to allow this organi-
zation, which travels the length
and breath of the Commonwealth
of the Bahamas, to speak to them
on this issue.

“T have been sitting now as
Chair for the last three years,”
said Mr Sands, “and no‘consulta-
tion has been done with me or
any executive member about the
Act being debated.”

According to Mr Sands, “the
government is laying an act

‘before Parliament, the founda-
* tion of which should be the wel-
. fare of the Royal Bahamas Police
. Force, and when you take care
- of the welfare of the force, then
- you are dealing with the efficien-
cy of the organization on the
» whole.”
In the Bill now before Parlia-
ment, Mr Sands said, there are
- several areas of concerned to offi-
- cers on the front line that the Bill
has neglected. In particular, Mr
> Sands pointed to the Bill’s inabil-
ity to address health insurance

Staff Association

for the officers.

“Last year,” Mr Sands said,
“the government allocated an
additional $2 million to improve
health care for law enforcement
officers. They promised us bet-
ter health coverage.

“The fiscal year is almost over,
and the promises have not been
kept.”

Mr Sands, in his address, stat-
ed: “In April of last year, the
Chief Executive got up in Parlia-
ment and said, ‘Sands knows in
short order that health care is on
the way.’ That was April of last
year. Sir, April of this year is
gone. Where is the health care?
We are tired of lip service.”

The association president told
the media that they have heard
persons repeatedly say, “J can fix
it with the stroke of a pen.”
“But,” he said, “if a police officer
is shot in the line of duty, it is
wrong for that officer to be
healed within 28 days or face
being placed on severance aid
pay. It is wrong and no govern-
ment should proceed to its Par-
liament with an Act that does not
rectify this problem.”

“There is no mention in this
Police Act that deals with offi-
cers injured in the line of duty
being placed on severance aid
pay. We are making the ultimate
sacrifice with our lives, for God’s
sake, show us some love!” the
officer exclaimed.

criminals and they are firing at

us,” Inspector Sands continued,
“and we are hit with bullets, then
medical institutions don’t have to
run us away because our health
care is a 1984 fee schedule.”

“If you want to fix anything for
law enforcement officers, fix that.
The urgency that they are putting
behind this police act, put
that behind the insurance,” he
said.

Another area of concern for
police that the Bill does not seem
to address, according to Inspector
Sands, has to do with section 91
of the Act.

Section 91, said Mr Sands,
speaks to the fact that the Minis-
ter has the right to send an officer
home at the age of 45. “Com-
pulsory retirement,” Mr Sands
calls it.

“How could we allow an Act to
be passed that would send a
young man home at 45, and then
when we look at the hierarchy of
the police force, it is close to 70?
Something is definitely wrong
there. It is wrong!” the Inspector
told the media.

Despite the fact that govern-
ment brags that it is a govern-
ment of consultation, Inspector
Sands said, whomever they have
consulted with does not repre-

-sent the junior officers'of the

police force.

“Apparently they believed that
they could speak with someone
way up in the rank, someone who
could say, ‘okay, these fellows
them said proceed.’” However,
the officer continued, “It is not
so. We have not given any green
light.”

“I ask you to stop any officer
along the length and breadth of
this country and ask them if they
have been consulted on this: Act,
and you will get a resounding
‘No,’” said the Inspector.

He said that if the government
proceeds in passing this Bill, as
they have the numbers to: pass

‘the bill, it will be sad, as it does

not address the welfare issues of
the junior officers of the Royal
Bahamas Police Force. Howev-
er, he continued, there is a
recourse that they as officers
have.

Not wanting to say what this
recourse was, the only hint that
Mr Sands offered was: “We are
armed and ready. We will go
from island to island, and we will
educate our members, and we
will sensitize them to the perti-

‘nent issues and. how we will be

going forward.”

While Inspector Sands was
expressing his concerns at gov-
ernment’s lack of consultation

that he received after consulting
with members of the Royal
Bahamas Police Force.
According to Mr Stubbs, the
officers that he surveyed about
the Police Act, for the most part,
‘say that the Act is “okay,” but
that it needs to be “a little

tighter.”

However, MP Stubbs said,
“nobody was able to explain what
‘a little tighter’ was.’”

The Holy Cross MP added that
he got the surprise of his life
when he:asked senior officers if
they had read the Act, and they

call basically said, “No.” =" -
Yet, during his press confer-
ence yesterday, Inspector San,
said that, had they consulted wit

2000 officers, they would have
found out what some of our con-

cerns were. iz 3

“In addition to pursuing any possible negative
impacts of AUTEC testing, and other naval
activities, on the environment, marine mam-

the most appropriate modality for sharing rel-

Blind receptionist sets an 4);

RECEPTIONIST Samantha
Bethel juggles upwards of 200
calls a day at the busy Ministry
of Financial Services and Invest-
ments switchboard.

Many callers are surprised
how quickly she recognises their
voice; few realise she is blind.

“A lot of people tell me I
should be receptionist of the
year, and they don’t have any
idea I’m blind,” she laughs.

Staying cool, calm and col-
lected with a dozen lines ringing

would never have been possi- _

ble without the education she
got at the Salvation Army
School for the Blind over nine
years.

“That school brought out of
you what you didn’ t know you
had inside you,” she said.

According to her supervisor
Errole Conliffe, “Ever since she
came here in 2004, Samantha

i SAMANTHA Bethel at work

has shown that she is compe-
tent, independent and focused.
In fact, she motivates the staff.
People gravitate towards her

- because she is so focused.”



Bethel’s request: give more
blind persons a chance to show
what they can do,and when the
opportunity arises, give her
more ofa challenge. .

‘stration of examination at the
Testing and Evaluation Centre at
the Ministry of Education in
Freepoft, reported that there was
no bréach of the national exami-
nation scripts. \

“We want to.advise the public
that all is safe and well as far as
the examination scripts for the
2006 sitting,” she said on Wednes-
day dpring an emergency press
conferénce held at the ministry’s
offices in the Kipling Building.

“Although the area where the
exams was stored was broken
into, we have checked the exam-
ination scripts against the mani-
fest that we received from Cam-

Break-in

order.” ’

Mrs Duncombe assured the
public that all the exams have
been accounted for and are now
back at the ministry’s office.

“We have the papers at pre-
sent and they won’t be reléased
until we can be assured that they
would be safe at the school,” she
said,

Mr Sands was sent to Freeport
to ensure that the integrity of the
examinations are indeed intact.

“My purpose here is to verify
the report submitted to me by the
officers on Grand Bahama, and to
allay fears of people in the com-
munity and to let them know that

all of the examination papers are
intact and in our custody.”

He said that ministry would be
able to proceed with the first
exams on Friday,

Mr Sands explained that if
there was a breach, the ministry
would be forced to recall all of
the papers throughout the coun-
try, and not just in the island
where it happened.

“That would mean expending
considerable additional funds to
have papers developed and
reprinted and back in the country
in time to start examinations. It is
a very costly process to the tune
of maybe $2 million to do that.

In addition to the cost, Mr
Sands said that a breach would
also impact the integrity of the
exams.

THE TRIBUNE



after My
Bahamas
competition |

STUDENTS throughout the .

Bahamas who participated in
the My Bahamas School com-
petitions earlier this year were

honoured in a lavish awards cer-

emony at the Bahamas Nation-
al Art Gallery on West Street
on Friday.

My Bahamas consisted of
poetry, essay, photo and poster
contests. And according to the
judges, all of the submissions
were top notch and displayed
the tremendous capacity for tal-
ent among the Bahamian youth.

In the end however, only one
student could win in each cate-
gory,

While New Providence stu-
dents dominated in the poster
and éssay competition, the win-
ning poetry and photo submis-
sions came from Grand
Bahama and Abaco respective-
ly

Geographic photo competition,
the winner hailed from the Aba-
cos. Gabrielle Manni of Forest
Heights School took home this
prize.

For the My Bahamas poster
competition, Anthony Wood-
side of C V Bethel Senior High
School in New Providence
emerged as winner. His stun-
ning depiction “My Nassau”
won over all of the judges.

Winners of the poetry and

_ essay competitions were Tekara

Capron, Walter Parker Primary
School on Grand Bahama and
Candace Darling of Nassau
Christian Academy.

Winners in the competitions
received an array of prizes
including: all-expense paid trips
to.a Family Island, trophies, My
Bahamas memorabilia and cash.

The My Bahamas competi-
tions are part of an overall
thrust to involve students in cul-
tivating and showcasing nation-
al pride.

In the My Bahamas National

It is.just one aspect of a far-
reaching campaign launched by
the Ministry of Tourism in ear-
ly November 2005.

“The ultimate aim of the My
Bahamas campaign is to use the
momentum of Bahamians’ care
and attention to the environ-
ment and the country in gener- :
al to reposition the islands of
the Bahamas as a greatly
improved and more enhanced
tourist destination,” said the
ministry in a press release.

In the broader My Bahamas
campaign, tourism officials are
using well-known Bahamian
sports icons, ‘entertainers,
Cacique awardees and ordinary
citizens to:promote the My
Bahamas concept to the gener-
al public.

The campaign also features a
number of civic volunteer pro-
grammes organised and run by
various non-governmental,
community and environmental
organisations. ;

Congratulating the students
for their participation and the
tremendous amount of work
put into the submissions, Per-
manent Secretary in the Min-
istry of Tourism Colin Higgs:
encouraged the students to con-
tinue to excel both personally’
and scholastically.

He also encouraged them to

~ embrace the My Bahamas con-.

cept by demonstrating concern:
for the environment in which:
they live. ERA ei
“We as Bahamians must’
recognise the wonderful trea-
sures we have in the jewels
known as the islands of the
Bahamas,” he said. “Every year
visitors spend billions of dollars
to enjoy just a few days of what
we get to experience for free
every day of our lives. We must
‘cherish and take ownership in
protecting what we have.”

AN American missionary

couple shot during a robbery in”

central Trinidad were in stable
condition at a hospital near the
capital on Tuesday, authorities
said, according to Associated
Press.

Four gunmen shot Kevin
Prins, 49, and his wife Susan
Prins, 46, on Sunday evening fol-
lowing a struggle over Susan’s
handbag outside the couple’s
home in the town of Las Lomas,
said Constable Marcus Lindsay,
a police spokesman.

The couple from Hudsonville,
Michigan, has lived in Trinidad
for five years, Jack Huisman,

Susan Prins’ brother, told The
Associated Press in a telephone
interview from Michigan.

The couple, directors of the
Trinidad chapter of a ministry
called Youth With a Mission,
were returning to their home
when they were stopped by men
dressed in camouflage and
wearing ski masks. Two of their
children that were with them
were not injured, Lindsay said.

Police have made no arrests
in the case. The couple was

ILO to help develop Bahamas
orkplace safety standards -

& By CARA BRENNEN
Tribune Staff Reporter



ecommendations from

an International

Labour Organisation

(ILO) occupation safe-

ty profile on the

Bahamas will help this nation’s soon-

to-be-established Advisory Council

on Health and Safety at Work to

develop health and safety standards

for the Bahamian workplace, The Tri-
bune was told yesterday.

' Brian Nutt, president of the

Bahamas Employers Confederation

(BECon) told The Tribune that a
team from the ILO’s health and safe-
ty department will visit the Bahamas

to assess working conditions for .
Bahamians as part of a comparative’

study they are conducting in five
Caribbean countries.

The study aims to ensure that basic
health and safety standards are main-
tained in the region’s workplaces. The
Bahamas and other states had par-

ticipated in an ILO meeting last |

December, held in Port-of-Spain,
Trinidad.

Mr Nutt explained that once com-
pleted, the ILO will work with each

, country to point out its strengths and.

weaknesses, and will make recom-
mendations as to how employers can
ensure they provide a safer environ-
ment for their employees.

Mr Nutt said he believed this will be
the first time a study of this kind is
completed in the Bahamas.

“It will be useful, as the country is
on the verge of establishing the Advi-
sory Council on Occupational Safety,”
he said.

The advisory council was estab-
lished in the Health and Safety at
Work Act 2002, passed by the for-
mer FNM government as part if its

labour legislation. This Act regulates
health and safety standards in the
Bahamian workplace.

Mr Nutt explained that the Council

was to be comprised of three repre- |

sentatives from employers, three from
employees, representatives from the
Ministry of Health, the Ministry of
Works, Fire Services and an inspector
appointed by the Ministry of Labour.

Once the ILO completes its pro-
file, it will share its findings with the
Council to assist them as they work to
advise the Minister of Labour on what
the guidelines for occupational health
and safety should be in the Bahamas.





Roberts: BTC 2005 profits up four-fold



’

THE Bahamas Telecommunications
Company (BTC) generated a four-fold
increase in net profits to $34.533 million
during its 2005 financial year, the minis-
ter of works and public utilities told the
PLP Convention.

Bradley Roberts, in what appeared to
be an address against privatising BTC,

. said the state-owned telecoms provider
and cellular monopoly holder had
rebounded from 2004, when its profits

dipped to $8.34 million as a result of

damage caused to its infrastructure-by
Hurricanes Frances and Jeanne.

Mr Roberts said BTC had earned $300
million in revenues for the first time in its
history during the 12 months to Decem-
ber 31, 2005, despite seeing its fixed-line
revenues decrease still further as a result
of competition - both legal and illegal.

_ The arrival of Systems Resource
Group’s (SRG) IndiGO Networks as a
legal competitor in fixed-line service pro-
vision forced BTC to reduce its long-
distarice and inter-island tariffs to make
them competitive. And callback and
Voice over Internet Protocol (VoIP)
have further eroded what was once its
mainstay.

BTC these ae is kept afloat by its

cellular
monopoly,
something that
is unlikely to be
welcomed by
business and
residential con-
sumers.
_ Mr Roberts @
said BTC’s cel- |
lular sub- |
scribers had }
increased in-
number from
115,000 when it
took office in
May 2002 to almost 200,000 today,
breaking these down into 119,000-GSM
users and 80,000 TDMA subscribers.

li B ROBERTS

He added that BTC had spent more

than $35 million to install GSM services

_in Grand Bahama and New Providence,

and it was now investing $14 million to
do the same in Abaco, $1 million in
Bimini-and $6 million in Exuma.

The Bahamas Telecommunications
Company's (BTC) net profits fell by 78.4
per cent in 2004 to just $8.34 million, as
expenses increased by $47.7 million in
comparison to 2003, driven partly by the



cost of: repairs following Hurricanes
Frances ‘and Jeanne.

The accounts reveal that BTC's net
profits had fallen from $38.679 million in
2003, as operating expenses increased
by 22 per cent, rising from $217.057 mil-
lion the year before to $264. 107 million
in 2004.

In his notes in the agile! report,
Michael Symonette, BTC's now former.
president and chief executive, said the
increase in operating expenses was

‘caused by the cost of repairs resulting

from the two hurricanes in September
2004. :
The re-engineering consultants hired
by the Government in 2004, PJP Course-
mark, were brought in to introduce best
industry practices, standards and bench-
marking to BTC, in preparation for
another shot at privatisation.
PJP, according to BTC's annual
reports, earned $2.718 million in fees for

. its work.

Meanwhile, the asset verification exer-
cise had not been completed as at year-

end 2004, but BTC management had set’

For all these people, the first

thing - or very little - in place in
the way of a recovery strategy,
the best place to start is by focus-
ing on Disaster Recovery. If you
haven’t found the time or the
funds to implement the capabili-
ty to recover your data, the
chances of you being able to find
far more time and funds to devel-
op and implement a Business
Continuity Plan are negligible.
So, focus on what is most impor-
tant: your data. Without this, your
ability to operate will be severely
limited.

So, to keep things quite real,
these are the steps that all com-
panies can cost-effectively and
simply follow to develop some
capability to recover from a dis-
aster. These steps will not take
you to the equivalent of a Disas-
ter Recovery utopia; they will,
however, provide you with the
foundation to build on when the
gods smile upon you and grant
you an excess of funds and time.

1. Data Protection

Determine your business’ most
critical application. Protect this
application and ensure you can
restore it again if you lose your IT
systems. Given that the most
common natural disasters in the
Bahamas are hurricanes, get this
data out of your building and out
of harm’s way.

There are many solutions that
can protect your data. In general,
the faster they can get you up and
running, the more costly they are.
In determining your budget, you
may like to calculate how much
down time will cost you in terms
of both productivity and revenue.
There are calculations available
on any Disaster Recovery web-
site, or you may like to get the
auditors in. You can then make a
decision as to which solution

would be the most cost-effective -

for. you.

For example, a state of the art
real-time data replication solu-
tion could be relatively inexpen-

sive given the cost of down time. -

For other businesses, the rela-
tively slow recovery time of tape
backup will be sufficient if their
cost of down time is minimal.
There are solutions to suit
every budget and requirement,
and it is just a matter of under-

standing and jassessing the

options.

BAHAMIAN consumers
could benefit from lower prices
via a reduction in import duties
that would result if this nation
became a full World Trade
Organisation (WTO) member,
the minister of state for finance
said.

Addressing the Bahamas
Chamber of Commerce’s glob-
alisation conference, James
Smith said other beneficiaries
from a reduction in import and
customs duties would be busi-
nesses whose cash flows were
eaten up by the tax burden
imposed on imports.

Joining the WTO and other
rules-based trading systems
would force the Bahamas to
drastically alter its tax regime,

A solid foundation has been
built during the past 50 years.
These five decades have wit-
nessed our transition to inde-
pendence, and the diversifica-
tion of ownership and power
among ever greater numbers in
our society.

We have, however, reached a
plateau and must now climb to
the next mountain top if our
people are to truly have their
day in the sun.

and import duties to generate
about 60 per cent of government
revenues.

These duties would be treated
as barriers to trade or tariffs
under the WTO, rather than as
a revenue-raising mechanism,
and ruled as a protectionist mea-
sure. Therefore, import duties
will have to go or be substan-
tially lowered.

Yet Mr Smith said that the
Bahamas would not have to
totally eliminate the Customs
Department or import duties if
it became a full WTO member -
it currently has Observer status.
He explained that the Customs
Department would still be need-
ed to combat the smuggling of
illegal goods and immigrants.

“T don’t forsee the Customs
machinery being dismantled and
reduced to zero,” Mr Smith said.
“IT don’t see the total elimina-

steps to this mountain top
include a few policies that are

tion of the Customs machinery
or duties.”

He added that full member-
ship in the WTO would cause a
tariff rebalancing, rather than
their total elimination.

Mr Smith said: “The impact
for the Bahamas, if we were to
reduce the average [tariff] rate
from 35 per cent to 10 per cent,
and able to pick up that differ-
ence in VAT, the immediate
benefit in reducing tariffs from
35-10 per cent will be those busi-
nesses which, up till now, prob-
ably had to use cash flow for
inventory up to 30 per cent of
import values.”

He explained that any reduc-
tion in import duties would
improve cash flow for Bahamian
businesses heavily reliant on
imported goods.

In addition, the reduction in
import duty rates might produce

implementation.

curriculum should be designed

The Government has been
studying the implementation of
a value-added tax (VAT) for
several years, not just because of
potential WTO membership. -

‘Mr Smith has said that the
existing tax system is taxing too
narrow a revenue base, being
primarily a tax on international
goods and trade, and not being
levied on the services sector
which accounts for most eco-
nomic activity in the Bahamas.

The Government’s target has
been to collect revenues equiv-
alent to 20 per cent of this
nation’s gross domestic product

fallen short of this, leading some
to charge that the existing tax
system does not collect enough.

Bahamas disappointed with US over copyright

Tribune Staff Reporter

» ATTORNEY-General Allyson Maynard-
Gibson said the Government was disap-
pointed that the Bahamas remained on the

cial 301 Watch List for 2006, especially
because ‘Washington and US-based copy-
right holders had not honoured the terms of
a 2000 agreement.

-The USTR said the‘Bahamias remained

on the list because it has failed to implement
an amendment to the Copyright Act that
was passed in 2004. The amendment nar-
rowed the scope of the compulsory licensing
regime for the reception and transmission of
copyright works broadcast free over the
air. :
Speaking with The Tribune, Mrs May-
nard-Gibson said the listing was disap-
pointing, particularly as the US had not
been as forthcoming in facilitating the trans-
mission of copywright material in the
Bahamas as they could be.

‘She said Cable Bahamas’ and other

the US to honour the commitment made in

mercial agreement that would allow the

Speaking to the Copyright Amendment
Act 2004, Mrs Maynard Gibson said the
Government remained in negotiations with
service providers, including Cable Bahamas.

She said the amendment to the Act was
passed, and the Government was working
alongside industry partners to ensure they
were enforced with as little impact as pos-
sible.

In placing the Bahamas on the Special
301 watch list, the USTR said: “The Unit-
ed States remains concerned over the
Bahamas’ failure to implement an amend-
ment to the Copyright Act enacted by the
Bahamian government in 2004. The
amendment narrowed the scope of the

compulsory licensing regime for the recep- |

tion and transmission of copyright works
broadcast free over the air.”

“In the absence of such implementa-
tion, the compulsory licensing plan con-
tains provisions that allow Bahamian cable
operators to retransmit any copyrighted

television programming, including for- pay:

programming whether or not transmitted

’ from the Bahamas or outside the Bahamas

jand whether or not encrypted,” the USTR
said.

It added that under existing Bahamian
regulations, the remuneration system for
copyrighted works under the compulsory
licensing programme included “less than
fair market value rates for hotels and oth-
er commercial enterprises”.

“The United States also urges all inter-
ested parties, including US cable operators
and copyrights holders, to seek commer-
cial solutions that would facilitate the legal
transmission of cable programming by
cable operators in the Bahamas,” the
USTR said.

Date set for Hope Town planning referendum

@ By A FELICITY INGRAHAM
Tribune Business Reporter



NORTH ABACO will host its first
referendum next month, when more
than 600 voters go to the polls to voice
their opinion on the shape that future
development in the area will take.

Chief Councillor of the Hope Town
District Council, Wayne Hall, told
Tribune Business that the Parlia-
mentary Registrar has authorised a
referendum, and it will be held on
May 15, 16 and 17.

It is the first time in district council
history that members have lobbied
so hard that a referendum will be
held, and it will impact future devel-
opments.

According to Mr Hall, it will be a
proud day for North Abaconians,
especially those who are pushing to
have their white paper instituted for
the sake of proper town planning and
zoning.

A white paper was drafted by the
Hope Town District Council in
response to a number of develop-
ments that are springing up through-
out the Bahamas and in their area.

Mr Hall said the lengthy paper has
now been reduced to 30 pages, out-
lining the wishes of the Hope Town
residents and the wider community,
including Man-O-War Cay and Gua-
na Cay.

He called the white paper a “frame-
work for change", and said he was
pleased to have the support of local
government behind them.

The white paper, which can be
found on the website hopetowncoun-
cil.com, begins: "We, the residents
and stake holders of the Hope Town
District, believe in self-determination
as an excellent (and the only) tool for
holding on to the best that the Hope
Town District has to offer.

“We, better than anyone else, know
the pride of taking good care of the

land, air and sea of the Hope Town
District, the thrill of sharing the land,
air and water with the other inhabi-
tants of this space."

Mr Hall said a successful outcome
in the referendum will lead the coun-
cil to press Parliament to have by-
laws instituted, giving them legal
backing to refuse developments that
will change the character of their com-
munity.

At present, Hope Town residents
say they have a quaint, rustic com-
munity with old-fashioned Family
Island charm. Large developments,
which require flattening of the land,
high rises and exclusive vacation sites,
will take away from what makes that

‘ area so unique.

Hope Town, Man-O War and Gua-
na Cay residents say that boutique
hotels with island charm, nature trails
and ‘eco-sensitive developments would
be more suitable not only for them,
but for similar areas throughout the

Bahamas.

Fifty-one per cent of total votes cast
will have to be in favour of the white
paper for it to survive. Mr Hall said
the paper's purpose included encour-
aging orderly and appropriate physi-
cal development; promoting public
health, safety, convenience and gen-
eral welfare; and to classify, desig-
nate, and regulate the location and
use of buildings, structures and land
for agricultural, residential, commer-
cial and industrial uses.

Mr Hall said the paper was their
way of stating that their district is
worth fighting for.

The website states: "There is no
place on earth exactly like the Hope

_ Town District — it cannot be dupli-

cated now or ever. It is worth saving
and we, through our self-determina-
tion, are building a team which can
better understand the elements of its
magic and preserve and enhance it.
“The choices that the Hope Town

District has determined to be the best
for itself in the past have not been
selfish or greedy — far from it. They
have been healthy choices for the
neighborhood and therefore give
health directly to the larger commu-
nity."

ed in the 2004 accounts.

BTC's executives, who apart from Mr Symon-
ette also included former chairman Reno Brown
(now replaced by Fidelity banker Gregory
Bethel) and Leon Williams, its senior vice-pres-
ident and chief operations officer, preferred to
concentrate on the revenue side of the 2004

business.

Total revenues grew by 7.1 per cent com-
pared to 2003, going from $256.268 million to
$274.464 million, due largely to BTC's cellular
monopoly, which saw the launch of GSM ser-
vices and removal of the moratorium.

Mr Symonette said cellular revenues grew by
21 per cent to $126.4 million, while the number
of wireless customers increased by 63,779 to
total 186.007. DSL subscribers grew by 42 per
cent to total 11,109, with revenues up by 30 per

cent over 2003.

However, Mr Williams acknowledged that. .

BTC's long distance and basic telephone services
remained weak as a result.of competition, both

the legal variety from Systems Resource Group

(SRG) and the illegal kind - callback and Voice
over Internet Protocol (VoIP).
Revenues from long distance operations fell -
by 3.7 per cent to $61.8 million, with BTC reduc-
ing its rates to respond -to competition from
SRG's IndiGo Networks - a classic strategy of

predatory pricing to drive the new operator out

‘ of the market.
The total number of fixed lines in service dur-
ing 2004 increased by 1.7 per cent to 133,936,
- compared to 131,682 at the end of 2003. |
Without qualifying its audit opinion, PwC
said BTC had become embroiled in a dispute
with the Bahamas Electricity Corporation

said no provision for any potential liability for

Lenders felt these projects
had done well by attracting a

the key was to have a strong

operator. By being financed
through a combination of equi-

ty, pre-sales and “fixed price

The KPMG survey found

worries about their sustain-

key for hotel financing

rise in 2006.

The KPMG survey found
that most tourismlenders
placed “place more emphasis
on construction:cost than on -
land, and in‘the case of land,
cost-rather than appraisal val-

ue”. : ms
The survey added: “It was

noted that it is important to

» have a-strong equity partner,

not just in the deal, but with
the resources to come to}the

table again if something goes -

wrong.

“When it comes to pushing
the financing deal through,
pre-sales help but do not solve
the equity position.”

Tourism industry lenders
viewed trade unions injthe

"Hotélsector and the ability to

recruit skilful staff as among
the greatest operational risks
to the industry.

“Banks consistently indicat-
ed that employee trade unions
and recruiting skilful, pleasant
and efficient staff continue to
be a problem,” the KPMG sur-
vey said.

“One bank even went on to
say that part of this problem
is that most often the cream of
the talent ina community is
attracted to other industries.”

Other risk factors cited by
those surveyed included hur-
ricane insurance and.coverage;
maintaining properties and fill-
ing their rooms; competition;
construction cost increases; and
a reliance on tour operators.

The KPMG survey found
that lenders to the industry
believed the Cricket World
Cup, scheduled to be held
from March-April 2007, was
viewed as generating strong
short-term growth andi proyid-
ing wider publicity for the
Caribbean. {

Market |

The conference market was
also seen as having great
potential for the Caribbéan
tourism industry, having ‘the
ability to attract visitors tothe
region during the off-season.

Terrorism-related problems
in the Middle East were also
seen by financiers as a poten-
tial opportunity that the
Caribbean could exploit to
attract more tourists.

Simon Townend, partner
and the Bahamas-based head
of KPMG’s corporate finance
operations in the Caribbean,
said: “The general consensus
for lenders providing loans is
that the short to medium-term
outlook is positive.

“Short-term optimism is pri-
marily because of the 2007
Cricket World Cup, with sev-
eral Caribbean countries host-
ing matches. Key opportuni-
ties also include increases in
several conferences in the
region and optimism about the
condo hotel and fractional
ownership sectors.” 1

exposure to the Caribbean
tourism industry, including

national Bank, Royal Bank of

1. One notrump. You have to be
careful when partner makes a mini-
mum response to your takeout dou-
ble, because he does not promise any
high-card strength for his bid and
may have a very poor hand.

The one-notrump bid in this
sequence shows about 17 to 19
points and so accurately reflects the
values you hold. It would be wrong
to bid one spade, which would prom-
ise at least a five-card suit and imply
greater distributional values.

2. Two hearts. There is no obliga-
tion on the part of the doubler to bid
again after his partner makes a mini-
mum response. Hence, your raise to
two hearts indicates extra values —
usually, 16 té 18 points. The raise
suggests to partner that there is a pos-
sibility of game despite his discour-
aging response.

NOINETTE John-

son probably has
the easiest job of any incom-
ing president.

She takes over the’ New
Providence Women's Basket-
ball Association from Kim-
berley Rolle.

But the work that was start-
ed four years ago by the initial
president, Mynez Cargill-
Sherman, has made it quite
easy for anybody to continue
in that role.

So when Johnson begins
her tenure, she shouldn't have
to worry about too much of
the logistics because the
NPWBA has been the envy
of all the other leagues since
its inception.

Yet Johnson should be
comforted by the fact that
Cargill-Sherman is back after
a year and a half hiatus to
deal with her family commit-
ments.

Cargill-Sherman will serve
as the third vice president in
Johnson's cabinet, so she will
be able to advise the new
president on just how to con-
tinue at the pace that has
already been set.

And, to top it off, Johnson

St Paul’s win
BSC men’s
championship

@ BASKETBALL

ST. PAUL'S have won the
Baptist Sports Council's
2006 men's championship
crown.

Making their debut in the
league, St. Paul's out-played
Evangelistic Centre 53-37 to
complete a two-game sweep
in the series last week at the
Baillou Hills Sports Com-
plex.

It was the second straight
‘time that Evangelistic Cen-
tre played in the final.

Daron McKenzie scored a
game high 16 and Leron
Colebrooke had 13, includ-
ing three three-pointers in
the win. Ed White and
Tunde Davis both con-
tributed 10 for St. Paul's.

Lamont Bain and Harry
Sands came up with 11
points apiece for Evangelis-
tic Centre. Keton Hanna
chipped in with eight.

On Saturday, the BSC will
attempt to crown its 15-and-
under division to complete
the season.

Saturday past, both of the
best-of-three series were
split, forcing a third and
deciding game on Saturday
before the championship's
best-of-three series got
underway.

In one half of the semifi-
nals, Golden Gates won the
opener 19-13, but First Bap-
tist bounced back to take
game two, 19-17. The other
half of the draw saw St.
Paul's nip Faith United 14-
13 in game one, but Faith
United rallied back for a 16-
11 win.

Here's a summary of those
games played:

Faith United 16, St. Paul's
11: Mario Dean pumped in a
game high 10 points to sin-
gle-handedly pull Faith Unit-
ed even in the series. Charles
Walker and Reynold Butler
both scored four.

First Baptist 19, Golden
Gates 17: Edmund Curtis hit
the game's winning basket to
finish with five points in
First Baptist’s win as they
evened the series. Donero
Balfour led the way with a
game high eight. Shearo
Nixon scored six points in
the loss.

St. Paul's 14, Faith United
13: Patrick Brice scored six ©
points, including the game
winning basket, to lead St.
Paul's to the nail-biting vic-
tory. Mario Dean scored sev-
en in the loss. ;

Golden Gates 19, First
Baptist 13: Rocco Fernander
scored five points and
Shearo Nixon had four in the
win for Golden Gates as
they opened the series with a
bang.

Donero Balfour came up
with six and Edmond Curits

IBF DECISION

At the International Base-
ball Federation's executive
meeting held over the week-
end at the Nassau Beach

Hotel, it was noted that the:

body has decided to continue
to endorse Jim Wood's presi-
dency of the Bahamas Base-
ball Association.

They have every right to do
that because he still holds the
rights to the governing body
of the sport, as recognised by
both the Bahamas Olympic
Association and the Ministry
of Youth, Sports and Hous-
ing.

But while he can come out
of the initial meeting held in
the Bahamas smiling from ear
to ear, he and his executive
body should not rest on their
laurels because. there's
still a lot more work to be
done.

The rift that has rocked the
sport for more than two
decades has to be resolved
once and for all and all the
fragmented pieces put back
together again.

The mere fact that there is a
Bahamas Baseball Federation
that exists with members com-
ing from all of the islands
associated with baseball says
that there is a problem within
the BBA.

And, until the dispute is
over, it won't make that much
of a difference on the local
scene what the international
body thinks about Wood
being at the helm.

It's time for the healing
process to begin.

According to Larry Wilson, vice presi-

Cadeau saves

Crime Stoppers

@ BASKETBALL
By KELSIE JOHNSON ~
Junior Sports Reporter

RONNIE Cadeau became the
saviour for the Police Crime Stop-
pers on Tuesday night, giving his
team another fighting chance at
the New Providence Basketball
Association (NPBA) division II
championship title.

With his team’s backs against -

the wall, Cadeau blazed to a game
high 42 points to lead the Crime
Stoppers to a 102-95 victory over
the Quick Kick Rockets.

Rockets, who had snatched
game one from the Crime Stop-
pers, came out blazing, connecting
on all their shot attempts.

The quick start brought confi-
dence to the team, who were cer-
tain they would dispose of the
Crime Stoppers and clinch their
first championship title. a

Ronald Glinton had the hot
hands for the Rockets in the
opening minutes of the game, but
after scoring the team’s first seven
points, the Crime Stoppers quick-
ly put a stop to his actions, leaving
Christopher Turnquest and Ter-
rance Brown to take charge.

Turnquest scored his first two
points from the free throw line,
while Brown made his connec-
tions from the outside.

But Brown and Turnquest’s hot
hands weren’t sufficient to close
the gap the Crime Stoppers had.
established.

Although the Crime Stoppers
headed into the second quarter
with a four point lead, the quarter
belonged to Cadeau.

The Crime Stoppers closed the
second quarter by scoring 29
points, Cadeau accounted for 13
of the points, while point guard
Carlose Thompson ended with
five points and 10 assists. ;

By the end of the first half the

Crime Stoppers had a nine point
lead.
Trying to take the team’s load
on his back once again, Turnquest
led the Rockets to a 9-0 run‘in
the opening minutes of the third.
quarter. ia

The Rockets would lose fire:

after closing the gap, but the |

Crime Stoppers were just getting
things started:

Playing a triangle game, which
included Cadeau, Thompson and
Jamal Rose, the Crime Stoppers
jumped back to an eight point
lead which eventually opened up
to the biggest lead of the game, 25
points. The team held the Rockets
to just 17 points in that quarter.

Thompson said: “We came out
playing great defence and hard so.
that’s how we cathe out on top.
“We can win the next game if we
come out playing with the same
intensity. lg

“All we have to do is play hard,
as long as we play hard we can
take the win from them. I think
we had more intensity this game
and as time goes on in the final
game we are going to explode on
them.

“The key to us winning the
championships is gelling. Once we
gel we are unstoppable and they
know that. But when we have a
certain few on the team no one
can beat us.” :

After exploding to 29 points in
the third quarter the Crime Stop-
pers held off'the late charge by
the Rockets, closing the game
with 20 points. ;

Top scorer for the Rockets was
Turnquest with 27 points, Kevin
Fox had 11. , :

Chipping in for the win over
the Rockets was Rose: with 26
points. ;

The third and decisive game
will be played at 8pm at the Sir

come chugging through
with a 25-16, 21-25 and 15-
13 victory.

Knowing that they need-
ed to make a move on the
Falcons early in the first
set, the Big Red. Machines
came with a plan in mind,
and that was to keep the
ball out of the hands of
Falcons’ deadliest player,
Q'Jannis Wilson.

With Wilson starting in
the front court for her
team, the Big .Red
Machines were able to get
three unanswered points

from the services line.
Serving it up was captain

Vanricka Rose.

Fuel

The three points would
fuel the Big Red Machines'
engine and, before the Fal-
cons could call time-out to
adjust their court, the team
had established a 14-9 lead.

But the: Falcons-didn’t
come this far to allow the
Big Red Machines to run -
over them. Assisting Wil-
son with some big point

-breaking hits was Daniqua
-Sherman.

Although the hits would

come every so often from

the duo, the thought of the
girls connecting with the
ball concerned the Big Red
Machines' players.

Rose said: "We wanted
to get to an early start
because we knew if we had
allowed them to come back
into the game we would be
trading points and anything
could have happened once
we did that. So, in the first
set, we played great

, defence and executed like

we were supposed to. Even
though Quey was getting
her hits we stayed focused.
* “But in the second set we
just lost momentum and
started focusing on Quey
and her hits. We weren't
supposed to do that if we
wanted to win.

“All we needed to do
was continue on from the
first set and we could have
:

let charts the
a Bahamian Puppet and
- his sidekick Derek put

some smiles on your

kids’s faces.





MIAMI HERALD SPORTS

swept them."

Wilson became a force to
reckon with in the second
set, destroying the Big Red
Machines from all angles
of the court. eet

Her dominance would
help the Falcons take the
second set.

Wilson said: "I believe
we played great today but
we were just lacking a few
things. All we needed to do
is make sure the ball was
over and let them make the
mistakes but we didn't.

"They have a good team,

together longer than us.
We tried to come and pull
off an upset but it didn't
work."

The Big Red Machines
were able to adjust just in
time in the final set as the
Falcons made one last push
at the title.







Sherman was able to
bring the team within one
from the service line, but
that's as close as the Big
Red Machines would allow
them to come. Rose would
step back to the service
line to seal the victory for
her team.
