Ingraham claims Christie
administration does not have
courage of its convictions



wi By SHIN HERIG -
T ‘ibune Staff Reporter



CRITICISING government;
for'not “having the courage of
their. convictions,” Opposition :
leader: Hubert Ingraham yes-
terday castigated: the Christie
administration:for:not openly:
standing by their decision to
vote for Cuba as a member of
the new United Nations Human

Rights Council.

Mr Ingraham. emphasised
that in the FNM’s view Cuba,
does not meet. the minimum
human rights standards, adding

that when his party regains the
government it will downgrade
the Bahamas Embassy in Cuba
to a consular office.

Minister of Foreign Affairs
Fred Mitchell yesterday in par-
liament revealed that the
Bahamas’ government had fol-
lowed the advice of its Perma-
nent,Mission to the United
Nations.

Although he did not directly
state that the Bahamas voted
for Cuba during the May 9 vote
at the UN’s General Assembly
in New York , the minister
tabled the recommendations by
the Permanent Mission which
showed that Cuba was one of
the eight countties of the group

of Latin American. and '

Caribbean countries for which
government was advised to
Vote.

Speaking with the press yes-
terday, the FNM leader con-
demned Mr Mitchell for tabling

_.a document signed by Nicole
Archer, junior officer of the
Permanent Mission, instead of
iimself stating outright that the
Bahamas voted for Cuba.

“They just can’t say it, don’t
have the courage of their con-
victions: They are able to go up
to the United Nations in our

- name, on our behalf, cast their

vote but they are not men
enough to stand up and say ‘yes
we did it’ and say why.

“Civil servants give ministers
all manner of advice, ministers
must make the decision, once
they make the decision they
own that and they say ‘I decid-
ed this’, no matter who told me
to do it or what advice they
gave me, it is not for the minis-
ter to.come to parliament and
say ‘I got it from officer X or
officer Y,” Mr Ingraham said.

In a press release issued late
yesterday by the FNM, the
Opposition said that it is
amazed that Minister Mitchell
chose to table the specific cor-
respondence received from the
Bahamas’ diplomatic mission
exposing the name of a rela-
tively junior career officer con-
veying the views of the diplo-
matic mission.

“Notably, the correspondence
was not signed by the Bahamas
Ambassador to the United
Nations and notably, the advice
of the Ministry’s senior policy
advisers has not been shared,”
the party said.

Mr Ingraham told the press
yesterday his party sees this as a
most inappropriate move on Mr
Mitchell’s behalf.

“And I. condemn him for
putting her forward as the per-
son who recommended it. It was
decided by the Bahamas gov-
ernment, Perry Christie and his
Cabinet, including Mr Mitchell,

FNM release claims
cronyism ‘is alive
and well today’

GOVERNMENT has allowed
hordes of crony consultants to
populate government corpora-
tions and ministries, the opposi-
tion FNM said in a release on its
website announcing a part of the
its policy agenda for the nation.

“Remnants of the pre-1992
cronyism and lax standards are
alive and well today. At the very
beginning of the present govern-
ment’s tenure their party’s old
guard launched a campaign of vic-
timization at the Bahamas Agri-
cultural and Industrial Corpora-
tion. Other departments have also
witnessed striking examples of
victimization,” the party claimed.

The party claimed that prior to
1992 very few non-PLP cronies
received government contracts.

Mysterious
illness forces
school closure

@ By MARK HUMES

STUDENTS at Inagua All
Age School were hit by a myste-
rious illness yesterday, forcing
officials to close the school until
they.could determine the cause.

Reports to The Tribune say the
mysterious respiratory illness first
began among students in the mid-
dle and high school last week.
However, the seriousness of yes-
terday's outbreak at the primary
school prompted school officials
to act.

A clinic official in Mathew
Town said the school was closed
yesterday and will remain closed
today, but she was not able to
give any information, as investi-
gations were continuing.

mentation of everything from
operational innovations to per-
formance measurements, to

changes in the role of women -

in the Defence Force.
They will also consider an

improved system of rewards

and recognition, conditions of
work, rules of engagement and
the capacity of the Defence
Force to respond quickly and
effectively to an emergency.
However, the deputy prime
minister said that she would not
table the actual report because
national security issues could
arise, but promised that leader
of the opposition Hubert Ingra-
ham, would get a copy.
Nevertheless, Mrs Pratt said
that the review team is of the
view that greater resources are
needed and that more effective
use could be made of the existing

resources of the Defence Force.

It recommended that the
Defence Force should cease the
performance of static duties and
the commando squadron should
be disbanded and replaced by a
rapid reaction squadron capa-
ble of providing relief and sup-
port within a 24-hour period of
the occurrence of a disaster.

The intelligence section; it
said, should focus only on mili-
tary intelligence and a joint
police/ military cell should be
formed to give attention to
internal discipline and investi-
gations.

The review team presented
its findings in a report-in Janu-
ary of this year and said that it
found “tremendous depth of
character” among most of the
Defence Force officers and
marines.

{OTT eT
our-person committee chosen to

eview

But it also found the Defence
Force deficient in organisation-
al effectiveness, noted that :
strengthening was required in
discipline, and said that the
reports of sexual harassment
and allegations of corruption
have led to loss of public trust.

These areas, it said, require
urgent attention.

The review. team made 134
recommendations with the
objective of transforming the

_RBDF into an effective trans-

parent and modern organisa-
tion.

The recommendations fall
into three categories: those made
with the view of improving the ~
human capital of the RBDF,
those designed to improve effi-
ciency levels and those designed
to endow the Defence Force
with new capabilities.

Coroner’s Court yesterday

quently scheduled to be
released from the Royal

- Bahamas Police Force's hold-

ing facility, where he was sched-
uled to stay overnight before
appearing in front of the Coro-
ner again yesterday.

However, since no official
communiqué from: parties
responsible for Officer Mack-

‘ey had been received by the

Coroner's office until after
2.30pm yesterday, Officer
Mackey's whereabouts were
unknown when he was called
to appear at the appointed hour.

In light of what transpired in
the Supreme Court in connec-
tion with Officer Mackey, war-
rants for three inmates found
responsible for causing’ the

death of prison officer Deon.

Bowles were stayed by Coro-
ner Linda Virgill while the
Coroner's Court awaits resolu-
tion of the matter.

The three inmates, Barry
Parcoi, Corey Hepburn and
Forrester Bowe, were told of
the court’s decision. when they
appeared before Coroner Linda
Virgill on what was supposed
to have been the final day of
the inquest into the January
deaths of Deon Bowles and
Neil Brown.

Yesterday, the Coroner
began by informing the inmates
of the reason they were appear-
ing before the court. She told
them that the jury, on Tuesday,
had unanimously found them
jointly and together responsi-
ble for the death of prison offi-
cer Bowles.

She informed the men that
the jury had also returned a
finding against prison officer
Sandy Mackey that found him
responsible for the death of a
fellow inmate, Neil Brown.

In accordance with Section:
31 of the Coroner's Act, the
inmates, at this point, were to
have been remanded to Her
Majesty's Prison so that the
matter could have been taken to
the Supreme Court where they
would have been formally

charged for the murder of Dion |

Bowles,
However, after advising the

-inmates of the jury's verdict, the”

Coroner told the men that until
some direction has been given
in the Supreme Court on the
matter of Sandy Mackey, she
would stay the warrants, read-
ing, and compliances of Section
31 of the Coroner's Act. The
inmates, therefore, were not
remanded for the murder of
Officer Bowles at this time.

In late developments on
Tuesday, the lawyers for Offi-

.cer Sandy Mackey appeared

before Justice Jon Isaacs to
have a stay executed against
the Coroner's jury verdict
that implicated Mackey in the

”

dexth of Neil erovuirns

Asa result of the stay, which
was consented to by the Attor-
ney General's officer, Officer
Mackey is expected to remain
free until May 26th when his”
legal team is expected to appear
before the Supreme Court.

Yesterday, the Coroner told
the men that she was staying
the jury's verdict because,
except for what she has heard
by way of the media, she was
unaware and had not received
any official communiqué of Jus-
tice Isaacs' decision concerning
Mr Mackey. '

Therefore taking into
account that.the jury found.
them and Officer Mackey
responsible alike, the Coroner
told the inmates that it would be
unfair to charge one and not

__the.other. The inmates, who are

presently serving sentences at
Her Majesty Prison, were then
told that they will be required to
return following the decision
that takes place in the Supreme
Court next Friday.

However, before leaving the
courtroom, the inmates, in front

_ of prison officials who accom-
“panied them, pleaded with Coro-

ner Virgill to intervene in the
abuse being perpetrated against
them at the security facility.

Barry Parcoi, recognisably
smaller in size since his previous
appearance before the court a
month ago, told the Coroner
that since their appearance in
court, both he and: Forrester
Bowe were beirig held in a hold:
ing cell without ventilation.

Inmate Corey Hepburn told
the Coroner that he suffers
from an asthma condition, and
in the sealed room in which he
is housed, he is horrified when
his asthma begins "acting up." °

Both Bowe and Parcoi told
Coroner Virgill that they are
being deprived of sleep as offi-
cials have begun flooding their
cell with hot bright lights. Bowe
said: "With the heat and lights
in the cell, it is hot 24-7.”

The inmates complained that
they were having trouble secur-
ing water and other necessities.
"They are using everything as a

“privilege and we have to beg ©

for these things," Parcoi said.

As of last Sunday, Bowe and
Hepburn informed the court
that they were on a hunger
strike. Hepburn, who said he
only gets one meal a day, told
the court that he is not allowed
to exercise and yesterday's vis-
it to the court was only the first
time that he "has seen the sky"
since he last appeared.

The Coroner told the men:
that the jury had also made rec-
ommendations to the Attorney
General's office addressing their
treatment at Her Majesty's
Prison.

In i

Criminal
matters OW:

CRIMINAL matters are
now being brought to trial
within two years, Attorney
General Allyson Maynard-
Gibson announced yester-
day.

Mrs Maynard-Gibson said
this has come about through
the enforcement of the Vol-
untary Bill of Indictment
(VBI) process.

She added that her team
looks forward to the day
when “serious offences will:
enable trials within 12 j;
months”. i

Mrs Maynard-Gibson
made the announcement at
the first of her office’s press’
briefings on the Swift Jus-
tice initiative, which she
pledged to hold on a regular
basis to keep the public
“abreast of the work we are
doing in the public interest.”

She also noted that the

Attorney-General Allyson —

Maynard- -Gibson yesterday
announced: this and other

. new steps that will be taken
OB _ by her office as part of the

; ongoing Swift Justice initia-



homes have set up security
cameras. Too frequently, the
cameras are set up in a way
that the police are unable to
use the tapes in evidence at
trial,” she said. “For exam-
ple, the camera may be
angled in such a way that a
clear identification of the
accused is not possible.”

Mrs Maynard-Gibson said
her office is also determined
to address the backlog of
cases in the Magistrates
Court.

She announced that magis-

' trates have now agreed to
work with the court
reporters to get to her office,
both a list of all Preliminary
Inquiries (PIs) completed |
but not yet transcribed, and
a list of all current PIs and
their status before the Mag-
istrate’s Courts.

“Matters in which there
have been Preliminary
Inquiries cannot be tried in
Supreme Court until prose-
cutors have prepared the
file, an essential part of
which is the PI transcript.

“The delay in this matter
is vexing for both accused
persons and victims.

“The attention of magis-
trates to the problem will
help us to swiftly deal with
the backlog,” she said.

y PHE FNM et ocstorday
accused the government
of using ZNS “asa -
shameless propaganda
tool” as part of the run-up
to the next general elec-
tion.

“This is unfair to the
dedicated professionals of
ZNS, unfair to the opposi-
tion, ‘and more important-.
ly, unfair to the Bahamian
people. But we have seen
this bad movie before.
Prior to 1992 the then
governing party treated
ZNS as its own pubic rela-
tions unit while banning
private broadcast media.

“The FNM put an end
to the unfairness of gov-
ernment’s monopolising
the. airwaves back then
and will again transform
broadcasting in the
Bahamas by putting ZNS
television and radio
beyond political interfer-
ence and manipulation,”
the party said.

Now, if elected, the
FNM said that it will insti-
tute a transparent process
for granting commercial
television and radio

licences.

- “The FNM believes in
fair play. This belief in
fairness.is a core value for
the Free National Move-
ment. Victimisation, rank
favouritism and lax stan-
dards are not our political ©
culture,” the party said.

as employees rallied in front
of the domestic departure con-
course to hear the remarks of
Nelverne Harding, president
of the Airport and Airline

“The letter I addressed to
the prime minister stated that
good faith has to be practiced
on both sides; its a give and
take — but there can’t be con-
cessions to the detriment of
the employees,” said Ms
Harding .

“That’s why we all decided

we all decided to take our

According to union mem-

Nonsense about Public Accounts

THE YEAR 1990 was a year that could be
called the battle for the survival of the Public
Accounts Committee.

; February, 1990 opened with the question of
whether the committee had for more than'a
century exercised without interruption the pow-
ers ‘that government now said it did not, and
néver.did have. According to government an
amendment was needed to give the committee
pawer to send for persons and papers to. exam-
ine the:country’s finances.

‘According to Attorney General Paul ‘Adie:
ley: “The committee has no powers now, in‘our
view, although the committee has sought to

“exercise powers outside of the power which the

House gave it.”

+ Government’s position was that the Public
Accounts Committee (PAC) had the right only
tovexamine the auditor-general’s accounts that
government had laid on the table of the House.

‘Arthur Hanna, (PLP-Ann’s Town), who is
now: Governor- General, disagreed with Mr
Adderley’s position. He told the House that
according to British practice, which is the mod-
el'for the Bahamas, the auditor- general’s report:
isnot the only report that the committee has to
look-at:;

. *] §hink we must be clear on that,” he said,

“because it is impractical to wait on an audi--

tdr’s report that you may never get. So, I-don’t
think, in Britain, it was ever envisaged that the

cammiftee was. restricted.only, to the. auditor's,

report. It cannot be right: It never was.’
- Agreeing with him were Opposition. members
and Dr Matthew Rose (PLP-St Barnabas), who

was a government member on the committee

and who, with the committee’s three Opposition
members had signed the interim report that

complained about how the PAC was being ham-

pered i in its attempts to carry out its statutory
dutiés. By. the end of that year when the question
of the, PAC’s powers was still before the. House,
Dr:Rose announced that if the committee did

not have the necessary powers to function, he

might as well pack his bags, call it a day, and go
home. “We will be wasting our time and I don’t

have any time to waste,” he told his parliamen- '

tary colleagues.
» “If the committee wanis a blank cheque to
éxamine accounts which have not been laid on
the table, we think that is outside the powers of
the committee, which it has never had and we do
hot thik it ought to have cee powers,” insist-
ed. Mr-Adderley.

| =Sir‘Cecil Wallace- Whitfield, Opposition

Leader ‘and. chairman of the PAC, asked Mr.

Adderley about the accounts that the law.said
sliculd: ‘have been laid on the table — four, five,
six, seven years ago — ~ and were not yeto on the

te

Pa a
We He

é

and rec

table of the House.
. “Because you don’t obey the law. then you soe

~ away,” Sir Cecil told Mr Adderley. “The Public .

Accounts Committee cannot examine anything,
because you don’t obey the law.”

Although Mr Adderley. said the committee
should have had the 1988 accounts, it could not
change the rules just because it did not have
them. Sir Cecil informed Mr Adderley that the
PAC had not seen the accounts since 1980. It was
now February 23, 1990:,Government'‘was 10

_ years.behind; 10 years in breach of the law.

Meanwhile, rumours of corruption dogged
the PLP like an unshakeable shadow.

~ Among many other things, the PAC was try-
ing to trace the path of $10 million that one day

took a leave of absence from Bahamasair and .

failed to return. Members were also trying to
uncover ‘government’ s shenanigans on a Far
East trip in 1988, paid for by the Bahamian peo-
ple. It was reported that a member of the dele-
gation was given $10,000 of the people’s money.
He returned to the Bahamas without change. He
claimed he had spent $4,443 on meals and $3,577
- on tips. That’s what one calls stepping out like a
’ real Mid-East potentate! As a government min-
ister commented a short time ago in a different
context, Bahamians must drive out in style so as
_not to let. the country down. One can imagine
that $3,577 in tips would certainly have left the
impression that the good gentleman had in fact

come from a-country flowing'in milk, hotiey and * |"
mountains of dollar bills. He was obviously..}-.
determined to do his. country proud, On top of __

this he spent $1,989 on. miscellaneous items.

_ It was obvious that this was not his money.
However, and, this is what worried:the PAC, it
was reported that another $10,000 was issued
from the Public Treasury to pay for these same
expenses. The PAC wanted to know if the bill
had been paid twice.

No wonder government was twisting and
turning in so many Houdini contortions to keep
the PAC out of its business.

‘ Although, Mr Adderley had told the PAC

‘that it was not “the PLP’s affairs, but the peo-.

ple’s affairs” that it was guarding, his govern-
ment obviously did not agree with him. How-
ever, considering how hard he fought to keep the

door to their secrets barred, we often wandered

if he truly believed his own words.

. “Anytime you start covering up you get deep-
er and deeper into the mire,” Mr Hanna told his
PLP colleagues. “If they do not give this power,

“my charge is going to be that they, are hiding
something.” :

Unless this government: Stabs to cooperate
with today’s PAC, the same ehatse. could be:

laid at its door.

I READ with interest Minister of Works rages
Roberts’ comments in your paper regarding families tak-
ing a more pro-active role in the care of their loved ones’

graves.

What a simple cop-out for Mr. Roberts to take! I have
been visiting the Western Cemetery over the years since.

my family has several grave plots there dating back to the .

1800s. It is a disgrace! I have often remarked that ifa
Government or:nation cannot take care of their dead how
can they possibly take care of their living.

As a young girl growing up I remember accompanying:

my mother and my aunt at least once a month to put fresh i

flowers on my ancestors’ graves. My job was to fill the

flowét containers with sand and water so that the flowers

would last longer. At Christmas time, we used poinsettias

and at Easter time lilies.

When my mother died, we had to hire a slew of garden-
ers to weed the walkways leading up to the grave site or

_ the mourners could not have got to the grave site. That
was not the first time or I fear the last time that we will

cers not to. mix friendship with
the execution of their duties.

“In this business, the peo-
ple’s affairs are the ‘real busi-

Mr Farquharson said he finds
it “very disconcerting” when
members of the public complain
about the bad behaviour of offi-

cers.

“I find it equally unsettling
when it is proven that there are
supervisors that are not doing
their jobs effectively,” he
added.

Mr Farquharson also urged
officers to obtain a copy of the
Police Service Bill 2006, which
is before parliament. He noted
that the bill will impact all
police officers in their daily
operations.

the continuing fight against
crime.

“Drugs, violent crimes includ-
ing murder, rape, robberies,
recklessness on the nation’s
roadways and the exploitation
of our children are all plaguing
our country,” he warned.

’ Mr Farquharson said there
are some officers who view pro-
motions as merely a reward for

to make it clear that the
Bahamian people expect pro-

Bishop backs change in discipline law

@ By DENISE MAYCOCK
Tribune Freeport Reporter

FREEPORT - .Grand
Bahama Christian Council
president Bishop Ricardo
Grant is encouraging Bahami-
ans to support a petition to
amend a law that does not
allow parents to discipline
minors over 16 years of age.

Bishop Grant applauded the
efforts of Rev Glenroy Bethel
of Kingdom Worship Center
for taking the initiative to bring
a heightened awareness of the
need for such legislation by
launching a petition.

Rev Bethel is calling on the

JOURNALISTS and other
staff at Bahamas Information
Services were expected to
attend an emergency meeting
yesterday to discuss their griev-
ances over the agency’s direc-
tor, Edward Ellis.

Tourism Minister Obie Wilch-
combe summoned them togeth-
er to thrash out their gripes over
Mr Ellis’s leadership qualities.

However, some staff were
concerned that the meeting
would be disrupted by heavy
rain. “I’m not sure everyone
will be able to get there,” said
one insider.

The meeting was called fol-
lowing a story in The Tribune
earlier this week highlighting
unease at the government’s
media bureau over Mr Ellis’s
management style.

A letter was handed to. Mr’):
Wilchcombe by staff claiming: -

government to amend Penal
Code Chapter 84 Section 110.
He claims that the law “ties the
hands” of parents — and pre-
vented him from disciplining his
16-year-old son, who refused to
obey rules of the household.

Rev Bethel said his son,
Rishawn Bethel, used the law
to his advantage and slept out
of the house on four days of
every the week without his
parents’ consent.

In February, Rishawn. was
found dead in some bushes in
Lincolnshire Sub-division.

Three young men have been
charged with Bethel’s son’s
murder.

the director was not up to the
job and should be removed.

Yesterday, insiders claimed
the Tribune article was “dyna-
mite”, upsetting the govern-
ment but leaving discontented
staff “full of glee”.

“I think Mr Wilchcombe’s
concern is to quieten things
down. It is understood that the

prime minister is getting.

want disruption as an election
approaches,” said one source.

BIS staff are responsible for
writing press releases and dis-
tributing photographs about
various government activities.

But they claim Mr Ellis is
not the right man to take over
from the late Chris Symmon-
ett, who died two years ago,
and direct the agency’s future.

Rev Bethel believes that the
law should be amended to
make parental control extend
to age 18 since parents are still
liable for the conduct of
minors up to that point.

The Penal Code Chapter 84
Section 110 states that a parent
“may correct his or her legiti-
mate or illegitimate child,
being under 16 years of age,
or any guardian, his ward,
being under 16 years of age,
for misconduct or disobedience
to any lawful command.”

Rev Bethel gained support
of both the Christian Council
in'Nassau, and now the branch
in Grand Bahama.

“I don’t know of any staff mem-
ber who supports him. There

Earlier this week, staff for-
mally expressed “no confi-
dence” in Mr: Ellis, a move
which left the director sur-
prised. “I don’t feel there is
any reason for such senti-
ments,” he said.

He claimed that, since he
took over in 2004, BIS had
grown a lot, turning out a
greater body of work. Mr Ellis
said he had received no infor-
mation about a letter.

said there were no plans to

Examining the Bahamas’ tourism »
performance for the past decade

] HE Ministry of
Tourism is doing a fine

job publishing statistics on its
website www.tourismba-
hamas.org.

The statistics published pro-
vide? an: excellent opportunity
to conduct trend analyses of
what has been taking place in
The Bahamas tourism sector
over the years, insofar as its
iajor visitor and expenditure
figures reveal. I recently con-
ducted such analyses and had
some interesting findings.

GROWTH IN VISITOR
ARRIVALS

Fe 1996 to 2005, The _
Bahamas’ enjoyed

increases in total visitor arrivals

from year to year in all but two

periods. In 1998, the total num-
ber of tourists decreased by
98,698 or by 2.9 per cent over
1997 and in 2001 total visitor
arrivals decreased by 21,078 or
by..5.per.cent over 2000. The
single largest year-to-year
increase of 15.2 per cent
occurred in 2000 when 555,543
more. visits took place than in
1999. The* second largest
increase occurred in 2004 when
409,925 more visits occurred
than in 2003.

The largest year-to-year
growth in air arrivals took place
in 1999; when 134,036 or 10.3
per cent more air arrivals
occurred compared to 1998.
The-Bahamas has not equalled
such. growth in air arrivals since.
infact, the closest such growth
occurred in 2005, when stopover

tourists improved by 4.4 per
cent over the year before.

In terms of sea arrivals, the
best year-to-year increase
occurred in 2000, when 512,938
or 23 per.cent more sea arrivals
took place than in 1999. That
level of growth in sea arrivals
has also not been equalled,
though in 2004, the country
enjoyed a growth of 388,585 or
12.3 per cent over the preceding
year.

Interestingly, despite a reces-
sion in the US in 2001 as well as
the terrible September 11 ter-
rorist attacks, The Bahamas
experienced less than a one per
cent decline in total visitor
arrivals, only a 3.6 per cent
decline in air arrivals and an
increase of 1.2 per cent in sea
arrivals.

GROWTH IN VISITOR
SPENDING

Fe 1996 to 2005, total
visitor spending
increased every year except
two. Not surprisingly, there
were decreases of four per cent
and five per cent in 1998 and
2001. In 1998 a number of hotel
rooms went offline in both
Grand Bahama and Paradise
Island; and, of course, 2001 was
when 9/11 took place. The

largest single year-to-year ~
‘ increase occurred in 1999 when

tourists spent $229 million or
17 per cent more than they did
in 1998; that was followed by a
spending increase of $155.6 mil-
lion or 10 per cent. The

centage increase in spending
since; at least not according to
the latest published statistics. It
did, however, experience an
increase in spending of some
$187.2 million or 1Oper cent in
2005 over 2004.

What was the largest year-to-
year increase in stopover over
the period 1996 to 2005? The
largest increase was 17.6 per
cent or $219.1 million which
occurred, not surprisingly, in
1999. Cruise visitors spent nine
per cent or $9.4 million more
in that same year than the year
before. However, 1999 was not
the stellar year for year-to-year
increase in cruise spending; that
occurred in 2000, when spend-
ing increased by $33 million or
29 per cent over the year
before.

GROWTH IN
DAY-SPENDING

W hen it comes to
what the Ministry of

Tourism labels as “day-spend-

“ing”; this too enjoyed increases

for the most part. The largest
single year-to-year increast of
$2.3 million or 52 per cent
occurred in 2000 and the largest
single period decrease of 22 per
cent occurred, not surprisingly
again, in 2001. There was a 16
per cent decrease in 2003 and
three per cent in 2005.

Indeed, it is for the Ministry
of Tourism to examine more
closely trends in day-spending,
as in five of the ten periods
examined from 1996 to 2005,
there were declines. By the

same token, however, there
have been a similar number of
periods in which there were
increases.

has been a building on the suc-
cess of the previous period.

Outside of a few years of extra-

ordinary external and internal
shocks, The Bahamas’ tourism
sector has been progressing in
so far as the number of tourists
visiting the country is concerned
as well as the amount of money
they spend.

\ N hat has accounted
for this general suc-

cess in tourism growth over the
last ten years? First, it has to be
the substantial improvement in

the tourism product, in particu- ©

lar, hotel properties, that
occurred between 1992 and
2002. That period saw an extra-
ordinary inflow of billions of

- dollars in direct foreign invest-

ment in the tourism sector, pro-
ducing the likes of Atlantis,
Emerald Bay, Sandals, Breezes,
“Our Lucaya and a number of
properties in the scattered cays

__.., and islands of The Bahamas. _

Add to thesé smaller proper-
ties such bonefish lodges that
provide greater variety to the
product. By far, however, the
development of the Paradise.
Island properties of Kerzner
International brought a certain
brilliance and durability to our
tourism plant that continues to
reap enormous benefits for The
Bahamas.

Despite the fact that there
has been no substantial addi-
tion to the tourism plant over
the last four years nor any sub-
stantial improvement to any
existing facility in that plant,
The Bahamas tourism product

created prior to.2002 continues —

to be attractive and appealing
enough to produce year-to-year
improvements in tourist statis-
tics.

Second, the performance of
the global economy, in particu-

lar, the US economy provided -
the disposable income needed ~
for visitors to take to travelling _

to destinations such as The
Bahamas.

From 1996 to 2005,
~ Bahamas has ‘enjoyed positive

economic growth in each-year :

with the average growth rate
over the period being some 3.3
per cent. In: fact, it-was. the
longest and highest sustained

growth in a generation. This -

growth was largely because the
US also enjoyed its longest and
highest sustained growth in a

' generation, averaging growth
-over the period of 3.4 per cent.

Although the events of 9/11
reduced growth in that year and
the following year, recovery was
quick, enabling the IMF to fore-
cast in 2002, growth for The
Bahamas of 2.5 per cent and
three per cent in the years 2003
and 2004 respectively. The
Bahamas has gone on to enjoy
that growth and sustained
improvements in its tourism
performance.

storewide |

The.

Third, the promotional efforts
of the Ministry of Tourism com-
bined with that of the private

. sector.-The-Ministry.of Tourism

has had the benefit of a highly
professional and capable team
of technocrats for more than a
decade, led for the most part
by Vincent Vanderpool-Wal-

‘lace at first and then succeeded

by the able Vernice Walkine.

Working together with polit-
ical directorates and interna-
tional marketing and public
relations companies, they were
able to promote the substan-
tially improved tourism prod-
uct, to a world enjoying good
economic times.

Just prior to 1992, The:

ieee

Bahamas was clumsily market-*~

‘ing a mess to a world in a mess.

Since then, it has sophisticated- . °

ly been marketing a much*
improved product to a world in
a much improved economic cli-,,

mate. That makes for good suc-

cess.

If we can enjoy much higher nN
levels of customer service in the ©
general tourism sector, Ihave; :
no doubt that we can double
and quadruple our success to

date from year to year. That is

_ the challenge and we are up to
task. We simply need.a: —_ s

able programme.

lof eae approach to legislation {

te

@ By PAUL TURNQUEST
Tribune Staff Reporter

THE Commercial Recre-
ational Watercraft Bill was
passed unanimously during yes-
terday’s seating of the Senate.

However the Bill’s passing

was not without incident, as .

opposition leader in the senate
Tommy Turnquest used his
contribution to attack the PLP
government on their “lack of
focus and clarity”.

While admitting, there was
nothing contentious within the
Bill, Mr Turnquest said it is fur-
ther testimony to the govern-
ment’s “piecemeal” approach.

“While I support the gov-
ernment’s efforts to improve
the laws surrounding maritime
activities in our country, I
believe that there must be a
comprehensive approach to
the enactment of legislation to
govern the use of our water-
ways, and any watercraft or
vessel that is registered under
the flag of the Commonwealth
of the Bahamas.

Giant octopus pulls

James Smith, the minister of
state for Finance, said the Bill
is only the first step in a plan to
fully regulate the industry.

“The Commercial Recre-
ational Watercraft Bill is the
major component in a com-
prehensive, two-part package
designed to modernise, regu-
late, and correct deficiencies
in the commercial and private
water craft sectors.

’ “Presently, two separate
pieces of legislation govern the
operation of watercraft in the
country — neither of which
facilitate the level of oversight
and adherence to rules which
are so essential in the water
sports industry.

“The Water Skiing and
Motor Boat Control Act 1971
makes provision for the regis-
tration of private crafts, but
there is no requirement for
inspections, or for taking out
of insurance. This legislation
also incorporates other water-
craft in the broad definition of
motor boats,” he explained.

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



the paucity of materials sup-
plied, schooling was intended
to create a non-combative,
docile citizenry, who held
Britain as the motherland and
the Sovereign as an all-power-
ful but benign parent. For the
satisfaction of these goals the
Royal Readers series, which
could be found in numbers one
through seven in every public
school in the country, was the
perfect vehicle. In the school-
room, the powerful thrust of
the Readers was made even
stronger by several irresistible
talismen designed to produce
devotion to a faraway monar-
chy—the images of a beautiful
young queen and her hand-
some late father on the walls
and a map upon which the per-
vasive areas of pink clearly
demonstrated that the “sun
never set on the British
Empire”. It made a child of an
isolated settlement on an iso-
lated island, separated by water
and official indifference from
the capital and modernity feel a
part of something big and
secure. It made sense, then,
that the school day began with
a heartfelt request to God in
song to “Save our gracious
King or Queen” and grant him
or her long life and continued
dominion over us.

The main business of the
school. day was the, three

seen any other island of their
homeland other than the one
on which they were born and
lived, but they knew the

Crimean Peninsula. They had.

charged into with the “Valley

‘ of Death” with the brave, but

foolishly led British “Six Hun-
dred”. They had wandered
with the famed Ms Nightingale
among those left sadly wound-
ed by that ruinous cavalry
charge. In imagination, they
strolled with the poet
Wordsworth over dales filled
with daffodils, although their
floral reality consisted mainly
of periwinkles and shepherd’s
needle, which had not yet been
praised in poetry.

nia, Bonny Prince Charlie,

Legree across the icy lake with

years before anyone consid-
ered the Bahamians capable of
heroism or worthy of written
record, except for disparage-
ment in local newspapers.
When there was singing in
the schoolrooms of yore, young
voices rang out one minute
with lyrics from Stephen Fos-
ter’s songbook, which extolled
the virtues of slavery and the

next with ditties more suited
to Scottish highlanders and

Irish street vendors. It was.

doubtful that a single child ever
saw the inaptness of speaking
of “darkies” and “longing for
de ol’ plantation”.

Despite the incongruities of a

British-flavoured curriculum ~

for rural Bahamian children,
there are many facets of ‘the
lessons learned ‘in the one-
room schoolhouses that wis-
dom would encourage today’s
curriculum planners to note.
The primary goal was the incul-
cation of solid literacy, devel-
oping the ability to “do sums in

one’s head” and read with °

comprehension and without
moving the lips when engaged
in “silent” silent reading. As
far as numeracy was con-
cerned, a pre-Independence
child of only middling intelli-
gence could put the average
calculator-toting student of
today to shame with ability to

multiply and divide mentally.

This proficiency was enhanced
by daily drills of the multipli-
cation tables to times twenty,
growth of skill and speed often
aided by a judicious flick of a
“switch” of tamarind or anoth-
er tree with strong and flexi-
ble young branches. ~

TOP COP JOINS WE

MR. CARL KEMP. as born in Andros and attended the Long Bay Cays Public School, attained a General Certificate of
Education in English Language at Freeport High School and completed Stages I, II and II Bookkeeping at Sylvia Gillis
College. ;

In February 1965, Mr Kemp jointed the Royal Bahamas Police Force, ultimately attaining the rank of Assistant Superintendent

of Police (A.S.P), and spent the next.thirty years of his life honing his expertise in various areas of policing. His intensive.

training inchided many local and international training courses at the Police Academies in London and Jamaica where he

studied S.I.B Procedures, court Investigations, Espionage, Sabotage, Terrorism, Counter Surveillance and Classification of

Documents.-Mr-Kempalso served-for eteverr years-at-the Security and Intelligence Branch where he was in charge of the

section that covered VIP protection services and intelligence investigations for thosé applying for Bahamian citizenship and
- applicants for governitnent jobs, just to name-a few areas-where his expertise and rigorous training proved advantageous

Perhaps his most important posting as a Police Officer was his service as the principal bodyguard for the late Prime Minister,
the Right Hon. Sir Lynden Pindling, where he served with distinction for eleven years. It was while he was traveling with Sir
Lynden all over the globe and interacting with dignitaries at every level that Mr Kemp truly gained an appreciation for the
finer points of VIP service, a knowledge that he brings to his new position at WEMCO.

... When he retired from the Police Force, Mr Kemp managed his own business in South Andros, but he missed the challenges of his former career, so he moved
_back to’Nassau and reconnected with another former Police Officer who he has known all his life: Mr Henry Wemyss, now the President and CEO of WEMCO.

ore ‘Although WEMCO had always offered VIP services and intelligence investigations, Mr Wemyss, sensitive to the fact that his clients were demanding more and
, more from these two areas, was looking to expand these services into their own full-fledged ‘Department within WEMCO.
“With Mr Kemp, I knew that I had finally found just the persons to head up WEMCO’s new Department,” Mr Wemyss states. “He is honest, reliable, dedicated
and brings a wealth of experience in this area to his new position at WEMCO. Even more importantly, Mr Kemp is a true team player and will enhance WEMCO’s
“portfolio of security services immeasurably. We are. * Mr Wemyss concluded, “expecting great things from him in this most demanding and fast-growing
. department.” ;

Mr Kemp is looking forward to the challenges of his new position, although he will be back in very familiar territory as he utilizes the national and international
investigative network he built up during his Police work to provide full and complete investigations of all kinds for WEMCO’s clients, both in The Bahamas an

4. d abroad. He will also be able to share his extensive knowledge in the area of VIP services and bodyguarding with the select staff of WEMCO that will work
under his supervision, creating a cadre of the most well trained men and women in this field that The Bahamas has to offer.

At long last, thanks to the vision of Mr Henry Wemyss and the proficiency of Mr Carl Kemp, The Bahamas has first class, high quality Intelligence Investigations
and VIP Services that has no competition and will meet all the needs of WEMCO’s 21st century, multi-national clients.

For more inforniation on WEMCO’s new Intelligence Investigations and VIP Services Department, please contact WEMCO’s Customer Service Department

“The PLP Government’s failures are a

poorer execution. The FNM team will once
again usher in an era of competence, effi-
ciency and results,” the party said.

It pointed out that the office of the prime
minister, with access to various policy
experts within and outside government,
must be responsible for advising the gov-
ernment on a variety of policy issues. It
should also assist the government with the
monitoring and evaluation of government
policies and programmes.

assessment, programme that will help the
government monitor long-term trends, and
threats to. the well-being of Bahamians.
While crises:are inevitable, many can be
avoided through long-range planning and
vigilance. Unfortunately, the present gov-
ernment prefers to govern in a constant
crisis mode, many of their own making.”

Mr Mitchell emphasised
that the Bahamas govern-

“On each occasion since

heads race fo

THE bid led by Fidelity

last night emerged as leader in
the race for Winn-Dixie’s 78
per cent Bahamas Supermar-.
kets stake, The Tribune was
told, although the US Bank-
ruptcy Court in Jacksonville
will have the final say when it
rules whether to approve the
group’s offer today. _

Sources said the Fidelity-led
group had leapfrogged ahead
of the original $50 million offer
made, by rival bidder, BK
Foods.

Some suggested that a $54
million offer may have been
made during the auction of
Winn-Dixie’s stake. in. New
York yesterday, but that could
not be confirmed.

However, it is likely that BK
Foods will take an ‘it isn’t over
until it’s over’ approach, and
wait to see whether the US
court gives authorisation for
Winn-Dixie to sell its Bahamas

Supermarkets stake to the

_ & By NEIL HARTNELL
Tribune Business Editor

ALTHOUGH the Paradise
Island Bridge Authority’s net
income increased by 132 per
cent to $964,532 in fiscal 2005,

.its financial performance is
“still far off the mark” from
enabling it to pay off its $28
million bond issues.

Bradley Roberts, minister of
works and public utilities, told
the House of Assembly yes-
terday that net income for the
year to December 31, 2005,
had risen by $548,736 over
:2004’s $415,796.

However, while the Bridge
Authority’s 2005 performance
was “a positive step in the right
direction”, it will eventually
have to repay a $28 million
bond issue that was sold to
institutional and _ public
investors on March 22, 1999.

to 2.3 per cent for the previ-
ous year.

While the: Government was
pinning its hopes on. better
administration to increase tax-
es and other revenues,
ECLAC warned this would
not be enough to control the
recurring fiscal deficits, due to
increased government spend-
ing provoked by public sector
salary increases.

“The increase in collections
will be insufficient to offset the
additional expenditure attrib-
utable to the rises in wages and
benefits paid to civil servants,
as well as to members of the
police and national defence
forces, and to education

expenses,” ECLAC said.
“Improvements in infrastruc-
ture will push up capital expen-
diture.”

And the UN body added:
“The fiscal deficit will add to
the public debt, which is cause
for concern. This debt, which
includes guarantees of debt of
public corporations, stood at
44.3 per cent of GDP at the
end of 2004, and increased by a
nominal 10 per cent in the 12
months to June 2005.”

The ECLAC warning comes
just after the Central Bank of
the Bahamas’ 2005 annual
report revealed that the 2004-
2005 fiscal deficit rose from
$166.4 million in 2003-2004 to

ernment’s forecasts.

APPLICATIONS for building permits
on New Providence increased by 33 per
cent to 846 in the 2006 first quarter, with

the minister of public works and utili- .

ties describing this and other data as evi-
dence of “a significant building boom in
the Bahamas”.

Bradley Roberts told the House of
Assembly that out of the 846 applica-
tions, his ministry had approved 554. The
approvals were for the construction of
buildings with a collective value of
$104.785 million, a rise in value of 14 per
cent compared to the 2005 first quarter.

Bahamas ‘building boom’

Approvals had increased by 26.7 per
cent, Mr Roberts said.

He added that 383 buildings were com-
pleted - and received occupancy certifi-

cates - during the 2006 first quarter, a.

90.5 per cent increase year-on-year,
based on building inspections data.

The value of buildings completed had
decreased. by almost 50 per cent, Mr
Roberts acknowledged, attributing this to
the fact that completions in the 2006 first
quarter consisted largely of smaller pri-
vate residences and apartments, com-
pared to “large commercial resorts” that
were finished in early 2005.

The minister added that 2005’s value
was also boosted by the inclusion of com-

pleted renovation work at the RIU Par-
adise Island resort, formerly the Sheraton
Grand. .

Mr Roberts said there was a 91.7 per
cent increase in construction starts on
New Providence during the 2006 first
quarter, based on 372 inspections car-
ried out by his ministry’s Buildings Con-
trol Division... 2 Ra

The value of these new starts was
$23.421 million greater than that for the
2005 first quarter, which he said repre-
sented a 65 per cent increase.

anteed by the Government. Thus the
administration, and by extension the
Bahamian taxpayer, will likely have to
step in.

Meanwhile, Mr Roberts yesterday laud-
ed the fact that the Bridge Authority’s
external auditors, BDO Mann Judd, had
given unqualified approval to its financial
statements for the fourth consecutive year.

He added that the Bridge Authority’s
current assets as at December 31, 2005,

‘stood at $4.03 million; with current liabil:. °°

ities standing ‘at $695,000 a ratio of 580:1.

A long-term loan of $600,000 was paid off
during the 2005 financial year.

Mr Roberts said the Bridge Authori-
ty’s gross revenues increased by 13.5 per
cent to $5.2 million in 2005; compared to
$4.425 million the year before.

He attributed the improvement to the
increase in vehicular traffic crossing the
bridge caused by Kerzner International’s

and construction projects on Paradise
Island.

Enhanced monitoring and collection
systems were also responsible for the rev-
enue improvement, Mr Roberts said.

COMMONWEALTH OF THE BAHAMAS

IN THE SUPREME COURT
Family Division

BETWEEN
ALBERT E.

@ By CARA BRENNEN
Tribune Staff Reporter

THE Ministry of Finance’s
legal adviser yesterday said she
felt the Bahamian financial ser-
vices regulatory regime had
higher standards than those
found in many OECD-mem-
ber nations, despite these
countries leading the initiative
to ‘blacklist’ the Bahamas in
2000.
Rowena Bethel told: a
Bahamas Institute of Financial
Services seminar that the

regulatory body, or ‘super reg-
ulator’, was about three years
away.

Question

The question, she said, was
who would pay for it and
whether it could be imple-
mented in stages.

Ms Bethel added that there
needed to be changes within
the industry as this was done,
because the “one size fits all
approach to business could not
work”





Financial Transactions Report-
ing Act only related to institu-
tions, while the proceeds of
crime legislation applied to
every person in the Bahamas.
A financial institution, she
explained, was any institution
which provided financial ser-
vices on a commercial basis.
Ms Bethel said institutions ‘
needed to ensure that Know’
Your Customer (KYC) stan-"
dards were in place, and that '
any suspicious transactions‘
were immediately reported to
the Financial Intelligence Unit |

Bahamas needs to ensure it Ms Bethel said there werea (FIV).

Ms Bethel, who is also exec-
utive commissioner at the
Compliance Commission, said
that while the Bahamas had
faced heavy criticism from the
Financial Action Task Force
(FATF), which ultimately led
to its 2000 blacklisting, she per-
sonally felt the Bahamas had
‘higher regulatory standards
than many OECD states. This
was despite the Bahamas per-
forming some of the required
supervisory steps in a differ-
ent way.

Ms Bethel said the percep-
tion amoung the industry was

The Tribune revealed previ-

ings, the Trinidadian industrial

ranging from retail to
services and automo-
dustries, was part of the

food products.
While the US court may

‘approve the Fidelity-structured

offer, that may not be the end
of the story, though. This is
because the National Invest-
ment Policy stipulates that the
retail sector is reserved for 100
per cent Bahamian ownership.

Advantage

BK Foods' main advantage
is that it is an all-Bahamian
offer, meaning that their bid
would not require Cabinet or
National Economic Council
(NEC).approval. The only
approval necessary would be
Exchange Control approval to
allow Winn-Dixie to repatri-
ate its profits on the sale.

Neal & Massy is a foreign-
owned conglomerate, and its
involvement would go against
the Government's National
Investment Policy, which
requires retail to be 100 per
cent Bahamian-owned.

However, Bahamas Super-
markets is already foreign
majority-owned through Winn-
Dixie, so some have pointed
out that allowing in an owner-
ship group with some foreign
involvement would be no dif-

ferent from the ‘situation that

exists today.

Yet with a general election
less than a year away, the Gov-
ernment might find it politi-
cally difficult to approve a bid
for Bahamas Supermarkets
that had a foreign component,
rather than the all- Bahamian
BK Foods offer.

Still, the scene could be set
for a conflict between the US
Bankruptcy Court, if it
approves an offer with some
foreign ownership, and the
Bahamian government and its

investment policy.

The advantage of any group
involving Neal & Massy would
be the huge financial and logis-
tical resources at the disposal,
plus the expertise in operating
and running supermarket
chains, and inventory and sup-
ply chain management.

Several sources have sug-
gested that both groups could
be massively overpaying for
Bahamas Supermarkets, valu-
ing it at between $30-$35 mil-
lion at most.

This is because the company

- owns none of its 12 stores or

headquarters, leasing all the
properties, which means that
the buyer will gain an operat-
ing business, fixtures and fur-
nishings, only.

Value

However, the value of Winn-
Dixie’s stake is based on the
price Bahamas Supermarkets
shares trade at on the over-
the-counter market.

Both bidders are likely to
have valued the company on
a financial basis, based on net
income and dividends. BK
Foods’ $50 million price was
about 8x net income.

recruits”.

In the 2005-2006 Budget,
salaries were forecast to grow
by 11.8 per cent to account for
44.1 per cent of government
spending this fiscal year, due
to “provisions for pay increas-

- es for select groupings of the

civil service, including nurses

. and teachers”.

The rising salary bill is likely
to concern fiscal hawks such

as the Nassau Institute, espe-.

cially in light of recent remarks
by the public service minister,
Fred Mitchell, that the Gov-
ernment was looking at
whether to hire an. additional
1200 public servants and waive
the entry qualification require-
ments. —

Mr Mitchell is likely to argue
that this measure is necessary

to help ease the major prob-

lem of youth unemployment
in the Bahamas, but critics are
likely to claim that it will be
no substitute for dealing with

-chronic structural problems,

such as poor skills and a lack of
basic education, among the
workforce.

In addition, the increasingly

bloated civil service is helping :

struction trends were likely to
strengthen, adding: “These sta-
tistics clearly confirm beyond a
shadow of a doubt that there is
a significant building boom in

Looking back at 2005, Mr
Roberts said that year had
seen the completion of 2,347
housing units, a 46.3 per cent
rise over 2004’s 1604 units.

Housing starts for 2005 rose
by 344 units, reaching 1,540,
and representing a 28.7 per
cent growth over 2004.

Occupancy certificates were
received for 1,278 buildings in
2005, which had a total value of
$346.639 million, an 84.59 per

- ‘cent increase, Mr Roberts said.

He added that some 992
construction starts were
recorded for 2005, a 168 appli-
cation increase, generating a

- total value of $151.525 million.

This was a 25.7 per cent or
$31.045 million increase.

Mr Roberts said the con-
struction industry picture was
likely to be even brighter, but

statistics on the industry had |
_not been collected in Grand

Bahama or the Family Islands.

He added that Family Island
Boards had been given instruc-
tions to start obtaining this
data, which was expected to be
included in next year’s building
statistics.

major advantage the Bahamas

Recognitio



for

Tom Grant at last

T SEEMS as if Tom 'the

Bird' Grant may finally .

get the recognition that he
deserves.

For many years, there has
been talk about various-sport-
ing facilities being named after
the living sports icon, but so
far nothing has materalised.

On Monday night at the
Sports Advisory Council's
conclave, Minister Neville
Wisdom disclosed that the
Bahamas Government will
honour Grant by renaming
the park adjacent to the AF
Adderley Junior High School
in honour of him.

Grant has been a legend
around the AF Adderley
School located on Tonique
Williams-Darling Highway,
having served as a physical
education teacher and coach
for more than two decades.

So with the highway being
named after the Olympic and
World Championships' dou-
ble gold medalist, Wisdom
said it's only fitting that they
rename the park after Grant.

The facilities include tennis
and volleyball courts and two
basketball courts.

There is also a softball field

STUBBS



and a large area for parking

and other recreational activi-
ties.

THE Bahamas will field

two teams. at the under 19.

level to compete in the

annual Pony Caribbean

Zone Girls Softball Tour-
nament.

The two teams will com-
prise of members from
both the New Providence
Softball . Association
(NPSA) and the Grand
Bahama Softball Associa-
tion (GBSA).

The Pony Caribbean
Zone tournament is a
Friendship Series, which is
designed to improve the
level of play by offering

the teams more competi-.

tion.

This year’s series will be
held June 29th to July 2nd,
and will be played between
St Maarten and Anguilla.

Participating Caribbean
countries are Aruba, St.
Croix, Bahamas (Nassau
and Freeport), Saba, St.
Eustatius, Dominican

Republic, Panama, and.

host countries Anguilla and
St. Martin Softball Associ-
ation. A guest teams from
the Pony US East Zone
and the Pony US South
Zone will also feature.

Delight

Expressing delight that
teams from the Bahamas
were selected to partici-
pate, president of the
NPSA Steven Coakley
viewed the invitation as
another opportunity for the
younger softball players to
gain exposure and experi-
ence in the Friendship
Series.

He said: “We are com-
mitted to this programme,
our youth development

‘two years.

programme and this is one
tournament we really want
to benefit from.

“We are in the process of
making the announcement

for the team, so all inter-

ested persons can come
and bea part.

“The invitation will not
only be extended to the
players currently under the
New Providence Softball
Association, but: we will be
sending out invitations to
all interested players espe-
cially on the high school
levels. When we make the
announcements we will
also provide a practice
schedule.”

Timing

Admitting that the tim-
ing for the tournament was
slated perfectly with the
NPSA’s goals, Coakley said

that the Pony Caribbean

Zone tournament will be
used a foundation for their
youth development project.

He added: “This is all
apart of the ongoing youth
development programme
that the NPSA is involved
in.

“This is the first tourna-
ment at this level for like
We’ve had
teams go to the other tour-
naments but that was sev-
eral years ago.

“Although we’ve had the
lapse in the programme |]
still believe the participa-
tion will be at a high level.
I think we can attract some
of the top players and the
other players who don’t
even take part in the
NPSA.” —

The team will be under
the leadership of Sidney
‘Bobby’ Fernander, with
Stephen 'Bishop' Beneby
as team manager and
Vernie Curry as head
coach.

majority of his adult years,
he's been a three-time sports-
man, having excelled in track
and field, volleyball and bas-
ketball.

During his earlier years in
sports, Grant was one of the

ory Grounds under the 'Sport-
ing Priest,' Father Marcian
Peters. Grant also left his
mark on the sport as a player,
having scored 48 points in a
game.

top sprinters. He was a mem-
ber of the men's 4 x 100 relay
team that brought home the
first two medals on the track
from any international com-
petition.

He was also instrumental in
the growth and development
in basketball during the days
when it was played at the Pri-

also gained some local and
international recognition. He
was the first Bahamian to
coach a college or university
and he was also the first
Bahamian to become an inter-
national certified volleyball
referee.

_ In addition to being a play-
er in all three sports, Grant

went on to make a further
contribution, serving as an
executive in each of them,
either as a commissioner or
president.

Grant has enjoyed a colour-
ful career in sports and as he
continues to pass on his
knowledge and expertise to
his children, it's only fitting
that he be formally recognised
nationally for his contribu-

tions.

He and Leonard ‘Boston
Blackie’ Miller are probably
the two oldest unsung heroes

still alive, who have spent their |

entire lives assisting our young
people.

Yet, neither of these men
have anything that they can
show from a national recog-
nition perspective.

The park adjacent to the AF
Adderley High School is a
start for Grant.

Hopefully something can be

done for Miller as well.
These men have gone

beyond the call of duty mak-

ing their mark on local sports.
They deserve any and all the
recognition that they can get.

Let's give them their flowers
while they are with us so they
can enjoy it.

ENGLAND striker Michael
Owen said he’ll be fit to play at

‘the World Cup. Wayne Rooney

should learn next week whether
he can play alongside him.
Owen, who has played only
30 minutes for Newcastle since
breaking a bone in his foot on
Dec. 31, has taken part in two
practice matches with his Eng-
land teammates at a training
camp in Portugal this week.

“If there was a World Cup

game tomorrow, I’d be fit and
in condition to play,” Owen said
Wednesday.

The former Liverpool and
Real. Madrid forward said he
was treating his approach to the

‘World Cup, which opens June 9

in Germany, as he would pre-
season training.

“T see it as probably that, only
I’ve got the added advantage
that I’ve been on the treadmills,
bikes, and everything else for



the last three months,” Owen
said. “It’s driven me crackers,
but it’s kept me in good shape.”

With Rooney recovering
from a broken bone in his right
foot, Eriksson said he was
pleased to have at least one key
striker ready.

“It’s very important and he
(Owen) looks 100 percent fit
yesterday and today,” Eriksson
said. “I’m very confident that
he will be absolutely perfect for
the World Cup and very, very
hungry on football, and that’s
good.”

Eriksson said he still hopes
Rooney can play some role in
England’s three group games.
Rooney was injured May 7
playing for Manchester United
against Chelsea. Eriksson said
he will have the foot examined
by doctors on May 25.

“At least we will know much
more how the situation is,”
Eriksson said. “I’ve always been
positive, but not because of
medical reasons, I’m positive
because I think he will do

~ THURSDAY, MAY 18, 2006, PAGE 9B



absolutely everything to try to
get fit as soon as possible.”

England plays Paraguay on
June 10, Trinidad and Tobago
on June 15 and Sweden on June
20. If Rooney misses those
games, he could still come back
for the latter stages of the tour-
nament — if England gets
there.

“Wayne Rooney not in the
World Cup?” Eriksson said. “I
don’t think he even believes
that will be truth. Of course, he
should be there.”

Rooney didn’t travel to Por-
tugal, but stayed in England to
continue rehabilitation under
the supervision of Manchester
United doctors.

Eriksson said Liverpool mid-
fielder Steven Gerrard was a
possible option up front, too.

This will be Eriksson’s last
tournament as England coach.
The Swede, who has spent five
years as England’s first
foreign coach, will be succeeded
by his assistant, Steve
McClaren.

@ BASEBALL
By RENALDO DORSETT
Sports Reporter

THE Bahamas Baseball Feder-
ation is affirming its commitment
towards the development of base-
ball throughout the country by
beginning at the game’s most
basic level.

The BBF, in conjunction with —
Nova Southeastern University,
will conduct a coaching clinic
open to coaches throughout the
country, offering collegiate lev-
eled tutelage in baseball funda-
mentals.

The two-day clinic is scheduled
for Friday, October 20th at the
NSU campus in Ft. Lauderdale,
FL and Saturday, June 3rd at the
Freedom Farm Baseball Com-
plex in Nassau.

: The aim of the clinic is to aid
coaches in their ability to teach
baseball at any age level, with a
greater focus on younger players.

The clinic will focus on basic
fundamentals of teaching young
players the essentials of the game
of baseball, most notably, pitch-
ing, hitting, fielding, base running
and throwing. ;

The NSU coaching staff will
also advise coaches on proper
practice organisation, execution,
and strength and conditioning
practices in order to get the most
out of their young players.

President of the BBF, Greg
Burrows Sr., said the relationship
between the BBF and NSU has
been beneficial to both sides.

“We have had several kids go
over and play for Coach
Mominey at NSU, and they have
been down to watch Nationals for
a few years, and scout some tal-
ent,” he said, “So both sides have
benefited a lot.”

He said the clinic addresses
the necessity of properly prepar-
ing the country’s coaches.

“Tt is the BBF’s job to get our
coaches up to speed,” he said,
“With the coaches becoming
more knowledgeable it will help
to develop the game as a whole”

Located in Ft. Lauderdale, FL,
NSU has made significant
impressions in its Sunshine State
Conference and on the national
level.

NSU baseball has been ranked
as high as number 13 in NCAA
Division II and has averaged 30
wins per season since 2002.

The NSU coaching staff, has
coached together for six years
and brings decades of experience
which should prove beneficial to
Bahamian coaches.

Head Coach.Michael Mon-
imey has coached on the profes- —
sional level for six years and at
the collegiate level for 10-years.

Associate Head Coach Ray
Romero has produced two All-
American pitchers at NSU and
has coached three Major League
Baseball pitchers at the high ~
school level.

Larry Starr, Assistant Athletic
Director for Sports Medicine at
NSU, will also participate in the .
clinic. Starr spent 20 years as
Head Athletic Trainer for the
Cincinnati Reds and nine years as
the Head Athletic Trainer for the
Florida Marlins. He has been
inducted into both Florida’s and
Ohio’s Athletic Trainers Hall of
Fame.

Also attending the clinic will
be first year Assistant Coach Skip
Wiley and sixth year Assistant
Head Coach Ryan Romero.

Burrows said the BBF will
take further steps towards
implanting programs to help pro-
mote and develop baseball
throughout the country.

“We look forward to having
more clinics, perhaps two or three
times per year,” he said, ““We also
plan on watching the way colleges
and universities do things in
order to help our national pro-
gram.”

THE Bahamas under 20
ladies National Team are on
their way to Turks and Caicos
Islands today to participate in
the annual Turks and Caicos
International Football Festi-
val (TCIFA).

The two day tournament,
which is set to take place Fri-
day and Saturday, will feature
a good mix of experienced
and collegiate players for the
Bahamas.

Although the coaching staff
doesn’t have the inside scope
on the teams participating,

- head coach Matthew Green

believes that the team’s blend
will give them the edge over
their competitors.

He said: “We.feel very con-
fident heading into, the tour-
nament. We feel as though
the younger players who have
been coming up through the —
ranks are capable of playing
at this level right now. They
are ready to handle the task.

“We also have a lot of
experienced players on the

-team:and they’ve been work-
‘ing together for like five years
now. We’ve put together
what we feel as though is our
strongest team, which should
propel us for a tournament
win.”

The Bahamas will open
their tournament play on Fri- ;
day against hosts Turks and;
Caicos, and will return on
Saturday to take on the:Cay- :
man Islands.

This will be the first time
the tournament will host
national teams, in the past the
tournament was offered to
‘club teams.

At last year’s champi-
onships, Leandra Ferguson, a ;
member of the Cavalier.-Foot-'
ball Club team, won the most
valuable player award,

Ferguson along with Tal-
itha Wood and Gerrianne
Dorsette will lead this year’s
team. - te toh

Green added: “Although=~
some of the girls just 3*<:
returned, the cohesiveness‘of
the team is still there, when
they were practising it’
seemed as if they’ve been
playing together forever.

“We have a lot of experi-
ence having played in some
tournaments prior to this one.
I know off hand that Turks
and Caicos have recently

played in a tournament:so
they should be tournament
ready. The Cayman Islands
team should be stronger than
the Turks and Caicos Island
team. But we feel very
confident that the our players
are ready for the competition
and will fare well against
them.”

Arnold Ran Arnold's Dept. Store on Bay Street for well over
thirty years and was an avid fisherman and gardener. He loved
being outdoors - either in his boat with his line and a cup of
coffee or out in the yard with his banana and pear trees and
his tomatoes and mangoes. But even more so he was a man
who loved his wife and children passionately and fully. Corned
beef and grits in the morning and steamed conch in the evening |
made him a happy man and a slice of raisin pound cake or his
sister Gloria's bread pudding for dessert sent him over the
moon. He always had juicy fruit gum in his pocket for the
children and a box of chocolates for every occasion.











He was predeceased by his parents John and Mary Ageeb
and his sisters, Gloria and
Theresa Ageeb.






Mr. Ageeb is survived by his wife, Dr. Gloria Ageeb; 2
daughters; E.J. Maria Ageeb and Lupita Ageeb-Rolle, 3 sons,
Jose, Thomas and Antonio Ageeb; 2 grand-daughters, Jazmin
and Lizabeth Ageeb, 2 grandsons: Shelton and Jonathan

Ingraham claims Christie
administration does not have
courage of its convictions



wi By SHIN HERIG -
T ‘ibune Staff Reporter



CRITICISING government;
for'not “having the courage of
their. convictions,” Opposition :
leader: Hubert Ingraham yes-
terday castigated: the Christie
administration:for:not openly:
standing by their decision to
vote for Cuba as a member of
the new United Nations Human

Rights Council.

Mr Ingraham. emphasised
that in the FNM’s view Cuba,
does not meet. the minimum
human rights standards, adding

that when his party regains the
government it will downgrade
the Bahamas Embassy in Cuba
to a consular office.

Minister of Foreign Affairs
Fred Mitchell yesterday in par-
liament revealed that the
Bahamas’ government had fol-
lowed the advice of its Perma-
nent,Mission to the United
Nations.

Although he did not directly
state that the Bahamas voted
for Cuba during the May 9 vote
at the UN’s General Assembly
in New York , the minister
tabled the recommendations by
the Permanent Mission which
showed that Cuba was one of
the eight countties of the group

of Latin American. and '

Caribbean countries for which
government was advised to
Vote.

Speaking with the press yes-
terday, the FNM leader con-
demned Mr Mitchell for tabling

_.a document signed by Nicole
Archer, junior officer of the
Permanent Mission, instead of
iimself stating outright that the
Bahamas voted for Cuba.

“They just can’t say it, don’t
have the courage of their con-
victions: They are able to go up
to the United Nations in our

- name, on our behalf, cast their

vote but they are not men
enough to stand up and say ‘yes
we did it’ and say why.

“Civil servants give ministers
all manner of advice, ministers
must make the decision, once
they make the decision they
own that and they say ‘I decid-
ed this’, no matter who told me
to do it or what advice they
gave me, it is not for the minis-
ter to.come to parliament and
say ‘I got it from officer X or
officer Y,” Mr Ingraham said.

In a press release issued late
yesterday by the FNM, the
Opposition said that it is
amazed that Minister Mitchell
chose to table the specific cor-
respondence received from the
Bahamas’ diplomatic mission
exposing the name of a rela-
tively junior career officer con-
veying the views of the diplo-
matic mission.

“Notably, the correspondence
was not signed by the Bahamas
Ambassador to the United
Nations and notably, the advice
of the Ministry’s senior policy
advisers has not been shared,”
the party said.

Mr Ingraham told the press
yesterday his party sees this as a
most inappropriate move on Mr
Mitchell’s behalf.

“And I. condemn him for
putting her forward as the per-
son who recommended it. It was
decided by the Bahamas gov-
ernment, Perry Christie and his
Cabinet, including Mr Mitchell,

FNM release claims
cronyism ‘is alive
and well today’

GOVERNMENT has allowed
hordes of crony consultants to
populate government corpora-
tions and ministries, the opposi-
tion FNM said in a release on its
website announcing a part of the
its policy agenda for the nation.

“Remnants of the pre-1992
cronyism and lax standards are
alive and well today. At the very
beginning of the present govern-
ment’s tenure their party’s old
guard launched a campaign of vic-
timization at the Bahamas Agri-
cultural and Industrial Corpora-
tion. Other departments have also
witnessed striking examples of
victimization,” the party claimed.

The party claimed that prior to
1992 very few non-PLP cronies
received government contracts.

Mysterious
illness forces
school closure

@ By MARK HUMES

STUDENTS at Inagua All
Age School were hit by a myste-
rious illness yesterday, forcing
officials to close the school until
they.could determine the cause.

Reports to The Tribune say the
mysterious respiratory illness first
began among students in the mid-
dle and high school last week.
However, the seriousness of yes-
terday's outbreak at the primary
school prompted school officials
to act.

A clinic official in Mathew
Town said the school was closed
yesterday and will remain closed
today, but she was not able to
give any information, as investi-
gations were continuing.

mentation of everything from
operational innovations to per-

changes in the role of women -

in the Defence Force.
They will also consider an

improved system of rewards

and recognition, conditions of
work, rules of engagement and
the capacity of the Defence
Force to respond quickly and
effectively to an emergency.
However, the deputy prime
minister said that she would not
table the actual report because
national security issues could
arise, but promised that leader
of the opposition Hubert Ingra-
ham, would get a copy.
Nevertheless, Mrs Pratt said
that the review team is of the
view that greater resources are
needed and that more effective
use could be made of the existing

resources of the Defence Force.

It recommended that the
Defence Force should cease the
performance of static duties and
the commando squadron should
be disbanded and replaced by a
rapid reaction squadron capa-
ble of providing relief and sup-
port within a 24-hour period of
the occurrence of a disaster.

The intelligence section; it
said, should focus only on mili-
tary intelligence and a joint
police/ military cell should be
formed to give attention to
internal discipline and investi-
gations.

The review team presented
its findings in a report-in Janu-
ary of this year and said that it
found “tremendous depth of
character” among most of the
Defence Force officers and
marines.

{OTT eT
our-person committee chosen to

implement Defence Force r

eview

But it also found the Defence
Force deficient in organisation-
al effectiveness, noted that :
strengthening was required in
discipline, and said that the
reports of sexual harassment
and allegations of corruption
have led to loss of public trust.

These areas, it said, require
urgent attention.

The review. team made 134
recommendations with the
objective of transforming the

_RBDF into an effective trans-

parent and modern organisa-
tion.

The recommendations fall
into three categories: those made
with the view of improving the ~
human capital of the RBDF,
those designed to improve effi-
ciency levels and those designed
to endow the Defence Force
with new capabilities.

had been violated during the
proceedings. He was subse-







«



| INMATE Barry Parcoi shouts to: a family member outside the. --

Coroner’s Court yesterday

quently scheduled to be
released from the Royal

- Bahamas Police Force's hold-

ing facility, where he was sched-
uled to stay overnight before
appearing in front of the Coro-
ner again yesterday.

However, since no official
communiqué from: parties
responsible for Officer Mack-

‘ey had been received by the

Coroner's office until after
2.30pm yesterday, Officer
Mackey's whereabouts were
unknown when he was called
to appear at the appointed hour.

In light of what transpired in
the Supreme Court in connec-
tion with Officer Mackey, war-
rants for three inmates found
responsible for causing’ the

death of prison officer Deon.

Bowles were stayed by Coro-
ner Linda Virgill while the
Coroner's Court awaits resolu-
tion of the matter.

The three inmates, Barry
Parcoi, Corey Hepburn and
Forrester Bowe, were told of
the court’s decision. when they
appeared before Coroner Linda
Virgill on what was supposed
to have been the final day of
the inquest into the January
deaths of Deon Bowles and
Neil Brown.

Yesterday, the Coroner
began by informing the inmates
of the reason they were appear-
ing before the court. She told
them that the jury, on Tuesday,
had unanimously found them
jointly and together responsi-
ble for the death of prison offi-
cer Bowles.

She informed the men that
the jury had also returned a
finding against prison officer
Sandy Mackey that found him
responsible for the death of a
fellow inmate, Neil Brown.

In accordance with Section:
31 of the Coroner's Act, the
inmates, at this point, were to
have been remanded to Her
Majesty's Prison so that the
matter could have been taken to
the Supreme Court where they
would have been formally

charged for the murder of Dion |

Bowles,
However, after advising the

-inmates of the jury's verdict, the”

Coroner told the men that until
some direction has been given
in the Supreme Court on the
matter of Sandy Mackey, she
would stay the warrants, read-
ing, and compliances of Section
31 of the Coroner's Act. The
inmates, therefore, were not
remanded for the murder of
Officer Bowles at this time.

In late developments on
Tuesday, the lawyers for Offi-

.cer Sandy Mackey appeared

before Justice Jon Isaacs to
have a stay executed against
the Coroner's jury verdict
that implicated Mackey in the

”

dexth of Neil erovuirns

Asa result of the stay, which
was consented to by the Attor-
ney General's officer, Officer
Mackey is expected to remain
free until May 26th when his”
legal team is expected to appear
before the Supreme Court.

Yesterday, the Coroner told
the men that she was staying
the jury's verdict because,
except for what she has heard
by way of the media, she was
unaware and had not received
any official communiqué of Jus-
tice Isaacs' decision concerning
Mr Mackey. '

Therefore taking into
account that.the jury found.
them and Officer Mackey
responsible alike, the Coroner
told the inmates that it would be
unfair to charge one and not

__the.other. The inmates, who are

presently serving sentences at
Her Majesty Prison, were then
told that they will be required to
return following the decision
that takes place in the Supreme
Court next Friday.

However, before leaving the
courtroom, the inmates, in front

_ of prison officials who accom-
“panied them, pleaded with Coro-

ner Virgill to intervene in the
abuse being perpetrated against
them at the security facility.

Barry Parcoi, recognisably
smaller in size since his previous
appearance before the court a
month ago, told the Coroner
that since their appearance in
court, both he and: Forrester
Bowe were beirig held in a hold:
ing cell without ventilation.

Inmate Corey Hepburn told
the Coroner that he suffers
from an asthma condition, and
in the sealed room in which he
is housed, he is horrified when
his asthma begins "acting up." °

Both Bowe and Parcoi told
Coroner Virgill that they are
being deprived of sleep as offi-
cials have begun flooding their
cell with hot bright lights. Bowe
said: "With the heat and lights
in the cell, it is hot 24-7.”

The inmates complained that
they were having trouble secur-
ing water and other necessities.
"They are using everything as a

“privilege and we have to beg ©

for these things," Parcoi said.

As of last Sunday, Bowe and
Hepburn informed the court

CRIMINAL matters are
now being brought to trial
within two years, Attorney
General Allyson Maynard-
Gibson announced yester-
day.

Mrs Maynard-Gibson said
this has come about through
the enforcement of the Vol-
untary Bill of Indictment
(VBI) process.

She added that her team
looks forward to the day
when “serious offences will:
enable trials within 12 j;
months”. i

Mrs Maynard-Gibson
made the announcement at
the first of her office’s press’
briefings on the Swift Jus-
tice initiative, which she
pledged to hold on a regular
basis to keep the public
“abreast of the work we are
doing in the public interest.”

She also noted that the

Attorney-General Allyson —

Maynard- -Gibson yesterday
announced: this and other

. new steps that will be taken
OB _ by her office as part of the

; ongoing Swift Justice initia-



homes have set up security
cameras. Too frequently, the
cameras are set up in a way
that the police are unable to
use the tapes in evidence at
trial,” she said. “For exam-
ple, the camera may be
angled in such a way that a
clear identification of the
accused is not possible.”

Mrs Maynard-Gibson said
her office is also determined
to address the backlog of
cases in the Magistrates
Court.

She announced that magis-

' trates have now agreed to
work with the court
reporters to get to her office,
both a list of all Preliminary
Inquiries (PIs) completed |
but not yet transcribed, and
a list of all current PIs and
their status before the Mag-
istrate’s Courts.

“Matters in which there
have been Preliminary
Inquiries cannot be tried in
Supreme Court until prose-
cutors have prepared the
file, an essential part of
which is the PI transcript.

“The delay in this matter
is vexing for both accused
persons and victims.

“The attention of magis-
trates to the problem will
help us to swiftly deal with
the backlog,” she said.

y PHE FNM et ocstorday
accused the government
of using ZNS “asa -
shameless propaganda
tool” as part of the run-up
to the next general elec-
tion.

“This is unfair to the
dedicated professionals of
ZNS, unfair to the opposi-
tion, ‘and more important-.
ly, unfair to the Bahamian
people. But we have seen
this bad movie before.
Prior to 1992 the then
governing party treated
ZNS as its own pubic rela-
tions unit while banning
private broadcast media.

“The FNM put an end
to the unfairness of gov-
ernment’s monopolising
the. airwaves back then
and will again transform
broadcasting in the
Bahamas by putting ZNS
television and radio
beyond political interfer-
ence and manipulation,”
the party said.

Now, if elected, the
FNM said that it will insti-
tute a transparent process
for granting commercial
television and radio

licences.

- “The FNM believes in
fair play. This belief in
fairness.is a core value for
the Free National Move-
ment. Victimisation, rank
favouritism and lax stan-
dards are not our political ©
culture,” the party said.

This act of protest grounded
Bahamasair flights to Fort
Lauderdale, Miami, Eleuthera
and Abaco for over an hour,
as employees rallied in front
of the domestic departure con-
course to hear the remarks of
Nelverne Harding, president
of the Airport and Airline
Allied Workers Union.

“The letter I addressed to
the prime minister stated that
good faith has to be practiced
on both sides; its a give and
take — but there can’t be con-
cessions to the detriment of
the employees,” said Ms
Harding .

“That’s why we all decided

today that we’re hungry and |

we all decided to take our
lunch break.”

According to union mem-
bers, Bahamasair workers
were distressed by the size of
pay increase offered by the

Nonsense about Public Accounts

THE YEAR 1990 was a year that could be
called the battle for the survival of the Public
Accounts Committee.

; February, 1990 opened with the question of
whether the committee had for more than'a
century exercised without interruption the pow-
ers ‘that government now said it did not, and
néver.did have. According to government an
amendment was needed to give the committee
pawer to send for persons and papers to. exam-
ine the:country’s finances.

‘According to Attorney General Paul ‘Adie:
ley: “The committee has no powers now, in‘our
view, although the committee has sought to

“exercise powers outside of the power which the

House gave it.”

+ Government’s position was that the Public
Accounts Committee (PAC) had the right only
tovexamine the auditor-general’s accounts that
government had laid on the table of the House.

‘Arthur Hanna, (PLP-Ann’s Town), who is
now: Governor- General, disagreed with Mr
Adderley’s position. He told the House that
according to British practice, which is the mod-
el'for the Bahamas, the auditor- general’s report:
isnot the only report that the committee has to
look-at:;

. *] §hink we must be clear on that,” he said,

“because it is impractical to wait on an audi--

tdr’s report that you may never get. So, I-don’t
think, in Britain, it was ever envisaged that the

cammiftee was. restricted.only, to the. auditor's,

report. It cannot be right: It never was.’
- Agreeing with him were Opposition. members
and Dr Matthew Rose (PLP-St Barnabas), who

was a government member on the committee

and who, with the committee’s three Opposition
members had signed the interim report that

complained about how the PAC was being ham-

pered i in its attempts to carry out its statutory
dutiés. By. the end of that year when the question
of the, PAC’s powers was still before the. House,
Dr:Rose announced that if the committee did

not have the necessary powers to function, he

might as well pack his bags, call it a day, and go
home. “We will be wasting our time and I don’t

have any time to waste,” he told his parliamen- '

tary colleagues.
» “If the committee wanis a blank cheque to
éxamine accounts which have not been laid on
the table, we think that is outside the powers of
the committee, which it has never had and we do
hot thik it ought to have cee powers,” insist-
ed. Mr-Adderley.

| =Sir‘Cecil Wallace- Whitfield, Opposition

Leader ‘and. chairman of the PAC, asked Mr.

Adderley about the accounts that the law.said
sliculd: ‘have been laid on the table — four, five,
six, seven years ago — ~ and were not yeto on the

te

Pa a
We He

=

é

and rec

table of the House.
. “Because you don’t obey the law. then you soe

~ away,” Sir Cecil told Mr Adderley. “The Public .

Accounts Committee cannot examine anything,
because you don’t obey the law.”

Although Mr Adderley. said the committee
should have had the 1988 accounts, it could not
change the rules just because it did not have
them. Sir Cecil informed Mr Adderley that the
PAC had not seen the accounts since 1980. It was
now February 23, 1990:,Government'‘was 10

_ years.behind; 10 years in breach of the law.

Meanwhile, rumours of corruption dogged
the PLP like an unshakeable shadow.

~ Among many other things, the PAC was try-
ing to trace the path of $10 million that one day

took a leave of absence from Bahamasair and .

failed to return. Members were also trying to
uncover ‘government’ s shenanigans on a Far
East trip in 1988, paid for by the Bahamian peo-
ple. It was reported that a member of the dele-
gation was given $10,000 of the people’s money.
He returned to the Bahamas without change. He
claimed he had spent $4,443 on meals and $3,577
- on tips. That’s what one calls stepping out like a
’ real Mid-East potentate! As a government min-
ister commented a short time ago in a different
context, Bahamians must drive out in style so as
_not to let. the country down. One can imagine
that $3,577 in tips would certainly have left the
impression that the good gentleman had in fact

come from a-country flowing'in milk, hotiey and * |"
mountains of dollar bills. He was obviously..}-.
determined to do his. country proud, On top of __

this he spent $1,989 on. miscellaneous items.

_ It was obvious that this was not his money.
However, and, this is what worried:the PAC, it
was reported that another $10,000 was issued
from the Public Treasury to pay for these same
expenses. The PAC wanted to know if the bill
had been paid twice.

No wonder government was twisting and
turning in so many Houdini contortions to keep
the PAC out of its business.

‘ Although, Mr Adderley had told the PAC

‘that it was not “the PLP’s affairs, but the peo-.

ple’s affairs” that it was guarding, his govern-
ment obviously did not agree with him. How-
ever, considering how hard he fought to keep the

door to their secrets barred, we often wandered

if he truly believed his own words.

. “Anytime you start covering up you get deep-
er and deeper into the mire,” Mr Hanna told his
PLP colleagues. “If they do not give this power,

“my charge is going to be that they, are hiding
something.” :

Unless this government: Stabs to cooperate
with today’s PAC, the same ehatse. could be:

laid at its door.

cemetery conditions

I READ with interest Minister of Works rages
Roberts’ comments in your paper regarding families tak-
ing a more pro-active role in the care of their loved ones’

graves.

What a simple cop-out for Mr. Roberts to take! I have
been visiting the Western Cemetery over the years since.

my family has several grave plots there dating back to the .

1800s. It is a disgrace! I have often remarked that ifa
Government or:nation cannot take care of their dead how
can they possibly take care of their living.

As a young girl growing up I remember accompanying:

my mother and my aunt at least once a month to put fresh i

flowers on my ancestors’ graves. My job was to fill the

flowét containers with sand and water so that the flowers

would last longer. At Christmas time, we used poinsettias

and at Easter time lilies.

When my mother died, we had to hire a slew of garden-
ers to weed the walkways leading up to the grave site or

_ the mourners could not have got to the grave site. That
was not the first time or I fear the last time that we will
‘have to conduct that exercise. The shepherd needle

bushes and prickles are waist high at times and I'am not
talking about the empty: beer bottles, cans,'and condoms,
étc, that are always:present.. Then there is ae robbery
and rape to take into consideration.

When I visit. ny family plots now I have-to go. with |

‘more than one:person out of fear of being accosted. *
In fact, I was at the Western Cemetery’ on May 8th. The

cemetery had been weeded recently but the beer bottles,

well.

rum bottles, Red Bull cans, were still there and doing

I could go on ‘and on but these days, my voice is just

SAILORS from the Navy
cruiser USS Monterey — part
of an aircraft carrier group on a
two-month deployment to the
Caribbean — completed a two-
day training program with the
Jamaican military, officials said,
according to Associated Press.

The crew of the Monterey,
which is based in Norfolk, Vir-

Tuesday in ways to stem the flow

said Glen Guimond, public

Washington dispatched the

which includes the Monterey,
in April to the Caribbean to
conduct naval exercises and
training programs. Venezuelan
President Hugo Chavez, a fierce
critic of US policies, has called
the deployment a threat to his

Fidel Castro has said the exer-
cises were an attempt to intim-
idate his country with.a show

POLICE Commissioner Paul
Farquharson warned his offi-
cers not to. mix friendship with
the execution of their duties.

“In this business, the peo-
ple’s affairs are the ‘real busi-
ness that you ought to be
about,” he said.

Mr Farquharson said he finds
it “very disconcerting” when
members of the public complain
about the bad behaviour of offi-

cers.

“I find it equally unsettling
when it is proven that there are
supervisors that are not doing
their jobs effectively,” he
added.

Mr Farquharson also urged
officers to obtain a copy of the
Police Service Bill 2006, which
is before parliament. He noted
that the bill will impact all
police officers in their daily
operations.

The commissioner was speak-

Police warned not to mix business and pleasure ---

ing at a promotion exercise for
280 officers, who he admon-
ished to not only view their
advancement in terms of what
they had done but to be mindful
of what was expected of them in
the continuing fight against
crime.

“Drugs, violent crimes includ-
ing murder, rape, robberies,
recklessness on the nation’s
roadways and the exploitation
of our children are all plaguing
our country,” he warned.

’ Mr Farquharson said there
are some officers who view pro-
motions as merely a reward for
past service, but said he wanted
to make it clear that the
Bahamian people expect pro-
moted officers to continue fight-
ing against crime.

During yesterday’s ceremo-
ny, held at police headquarters,
200 constables were promoted
to corporal and 80 corporals
were made sergeants. Included
were 60 female officers.



Bishop backs change in discipline law

Tourism Minister Obie Wilch-

However, some staff were
concerned that the meeting
would be disrupted by heavy
rain. “I’m not sure everyone
will be able to get there,” said
one insider.

The meeting was called fol-

Rev Bethel believes that the
law should be amended to
make parental control extend
to age 18 since parents are still
liable for the conduct of
minors up to that point.

The Penal Code Chapter 84
Section 110 states that a parent
“may correct his or her legiti-

THE TRIBUNE



Examining the Bahamas’ tourism »
performance for the past decade

] HE Ministry of
Tourism is doing a fine

job publishing statistics on its
website www.tourismba-
hamas.org.

The statistics published pro-
vide? an: excellent opportunity
to conduct trend analyses of
what has been taking place in
The Bahamas tourism sector
over the years, insofar as its
iajor visitor and expenditure
figures reveal. I recently con-
ducted such analyses and had
some interesting findings.

GROWTH IN VISITOR
ARRIVALS

Fe 1996 to 2005, The _
Bahamas’ enjoyed

increases in total visitor arrivals

from year to year in all but two

periods. In 1998, the total num-
ber of tourists decreased by
98,698 or by 2.9 per cent over
1997 and in 2001 total visitor
arrivals decreased by 21,078 or
by..5.per.cent over 2000. The
single largest year-to-year
increase of 15.2 per cent
occurred in 2000 when 555,543
more. visits took place than in
1999. The* second largest
increase occurred in 2004 when
409,925 more visits occurred
than in 2003.

The largest year-to-year
growth in air arrivals took place
in 1999; when 134,036 or 10.3
per cent more air arrivals
occurred compared to 1998.
The-Bahamas has not equalled
such. growth in air arrivals since.
infact, the closest such growth
occurred in 2005, when stopover

tourists improved by 4.4 per
cent over the year before.

In terms of sea arrivals, the
best year-to-year increase
occurred in 2000, when 512,938
or 23 per.cent more sea arrivals
took place than in 1999. That
level of growth in sea arrivals
has also not been equalled,
though in 2004, the country
enjoyed a growth of 388,585 or
12.3 per cent over the preceding
year.

Interestingly, despite a reces-
sion in the US in 2001 as well as
the terrible September 11 ter-
rorist attacks, The Bahamas
experienced less than a one per
cent decline in total visitor
arrivals, only a 3.6 per cent
decline in air arrivals and an
increase of 1.2 per cent in sea
arrivals.

GROWTH IN VISITOR
SPENDING

Fe 1996 to 2005, total
visitor spending
increased every year except
two. Not surprisingly, there
were decreases of four per cent
and five per cent in 1998 and
2001. In 1998 a number of hotel
rooms went offline in both
Grand Bahama and Paradise
Island; and, of course, 2001 was
when 9/11 took place. The

largest single year-to-year ~
‘ increase occurred in 1999 when

tourists spent $229 million or
17 per cent more than they did
in 1998; that was followed by a
spending increase of $155.6 mil-
lion or 10 per cent. The
Bahamas has not. enjoyed any

centage increase in spending
since; at least not according to
the latest published statistics. It
did, however, experience an
increase in spending of some
$187.2 million or 1Oper cent in
2005 over 2004.

What was the largest year-to-
year increase in stopover over
the period 1996 to 2005? The
largest increase was 17.6 per
cent or $219.1 million which
occurred, not surprisingly, in
1999. Cruise visitors spent nine
per cent or $9.4 million more
in that same year than the year
before. However, 1999 was not
the stellar year for year-to-year
increase in cruise spending; that
occurred in 2000, when spend-
ing increased by $33 million or
29 per cent over the year
before.

GROWTH IN
DAY-SPENDING

W hen it comes to
what the Ministry of

Tourism labels as “day-spend-

“ing”; this too enjoyed increases

for the most part. The largest
single year-to-year increast of
$2.3 million or 52 per cent
occurred in 2000 and the largest
single period decrease of 22 per
cent occurred, not surprisingly
again, in 2001. There was a 16
per cent decrease in 2003 and
three per cent in 2005.

Indeed, it is for the Ministry
of Tourism to examine more
closely trends in day-spending,
as in five of the ten periods
examined from 1996 to 2005,
there were declines. By the

same token, however, there
have been a similar number of
periods in which there were

cess of the previous period.

Outside of a few years of extra-

ordinary external and internal
shocks, The Bahamas’ tourism
sector has been progressing in
so far as the number of tourists
visiting the country is concerned
as well as the amount of money
they spend.

Looking at the last four years,
that is 2002 to 2005, the cumu-
lative numbers reveal a definite

_....Jmprovement over the previous

four years, that is, 1998 to 2001,
of 3.7 million or 23.8. per cent
more tourist visits and $388.9

million or 6.7 per cent more

spending. Similarly, the period
of 1998 to 2001 saw a cumula-
tive increase over the four years
prior, that is, 1994 to 1997, of
942,149 or 6.5 per cent visitor
arrivals and $707.1 million or
13.9 per cent more spending.

.WHY THIS GENERAL
SUCCESS IN TOURISM
OVER THE PERIOD?

\ N hat has accounted
for this general suc-

cess in tourism growth over the
last ten years? First, it has to be
the substantial improvement in

the tourism product, in particu- ©

lar, hotel properties, that
occurred between 1992 and
2002. That period saw an extra-
ordinary inflow of billions of

- dollars in direct foreign invest-

ment in the tourism sector, pro-
ducing the likes of Atlantis,
Emerald Bay, Sandals, Breezes,
“Our Lucaya and a number of
properties in the scattered cays

__.., and islands of The Bahamas. _

Add to thesé smaller proper-
ties such bonefish lodges that
provide greater variety to the
product. By far, however, the
development of the Paradise.
Island properties of Kerzner
International brought a certain
brilliance and durability to our
tourism plant that continues to
reap enormous benefits for The
Bahamas.

Despite the fact that there
has been no substantial addi-
tion to the tourism plant over
the last four years nor any sub-
stantial improvement to any
existing facility in that plant,
The Bahamas tourism product

created prior to.2002 continues —

to be attractive and appealing
enough to produce year-to-year
improvements in tourist statis-
tics.

Second, the performance of
the global economy, in particu-

lar, the US economy provided -
the disposable income needed ~
for visitors to take to travelling _

to destinations such as The
Bahamas.

From 1996 to 2005,
~ Bahamas has ‘enjoyed positive

economic growth in each-year :

with the average growth rate
over the period being some 3.3
per cent. In: fact, it-was. the
longest and highest sustained

growth in a generation. This -

growth was largely because the
US also enjoyed its longest and
highest sustained growth in a

' generation, averaging growth
-over the period of 3.4 per cent.

Although the events of 9/11
reduced growth in that year and
the following year, recovery was
quick, enabling the IMF to fore-
cast in 2002, growth for The
Bahamas of 2.5 per cent and
three per cent in the years 2003
and 2004 respectively. The
Bahamas has gone on to enjoy
that growth and sustained
improvements in its tourism
performance.

storewide |

The.

Third, the promotional efforts
of the Ministry of Tourism com-
bined with that of the private

. sector.-The-Ministry.of Tourism

has had the benefit of a highly
professional and capable team
of technocrats for more than a
decade, led for the most part
by Vincent Vanderpool-Wal-

‘lace at first and then succeeded

by the able Vernice Walkine.

Working together with polit-
ical directorates and interna-
tional marketing and public
relations companies, they were
able to promote the substan-
tially improved tourism prod-
uct, to a world enjoying good
economic times.

Just prior to 1992, The:

ieee

Bahamas was clumsily market-*~

‘ing a mess to a world in a mess.

Since then, it has sophisticated- . °

ly been marketing a much*
improved product to a world in
a much improved economic cli-,,

mate. That makes for good suc-

cess.

If we can enjoy much higher nN
levels of customer service in the ©
general tourism sector, Ihave; :
no doubt that we can double
and quadruple our success to

date from year to year. That is

_ the challenge and we are up to

lof eae approach to legislation {

@ By PAUL TURNQUEST
Tribune Staff Reporter

THE Commercial Recre-
ational Watercraft Bill was
passed unanimously during yes-
terday’s seating of the Senate.

However the Bill’s passing

was not without incident, as .

opposition leader in the senate
Tommy Turnquest used his
contribution to attack the PLP
government on their “lack of
focus and clarity”.

While admitting, there was
nothing contentious within the
Bill, Mr Turnquest said it is fur-
ther testimony to the govern-
ment’s “piecemeal” approach.

“While I support the gov-
ernment’s efforts to improve
the laws surrounding maritime
activities in our country, I
believe that there must be a
comprehensive approach to
the enactment of legislation to
govern the use of our water-
ways, and any watercraft or
vessel that is registered under
the flag of the Commonwealth
of the Bahamas.

James Smith, the minister of
state for Finance, said the Bill
is only the first step in a plan to
fully regulate the industry.

“The Commercial Recre-
ational Watercraft Bill is the
major component in a com-
prehensive, two-part package
designed to modernise, regu-
late, and correct deficiencies
in the commercial and private
water craft sectors.

’ “Presently, two separate
pieces of legislation govern the
operation of watercraft in the
country — neither of which
facilitate the level of oversight
and adherence to rules which
are so essential in the water
sports industry.

“The Water Skiing and
Motor Boat Control Act 1971
makes provision for the regis-
tration of private crafts, but
there is no requirement for
inspections, or for taking out
of insurance. This legislation
also incorporates other water-
craft in the broad definition of
motor boats,” he explained.

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



the paucity of materials sup-
plied, schooling was intended
to create a non-combative,
docile citizenry, who held
Britain as the motherland and
the Sovereign as an all-power-
ful but benign parent. For the
satisfaction of these goals the
Royal Readers series, which
could be found in numbers one
through seven in every public
school in the country, was the
perfect vehicle. In the school-
room, the powerful thrust of
the Readers was made even
stronger by several irresistible
talismen designed to produce
devotion to a faraway monar-
chy—the images of a beautiful
young queen and her hand-
some late father on the walls
and a map upon which the per-
vasive areas of pink clearly
demonstrated that the “sun
never set on the British
Empire”. It made a child of an
isolated settlement on an iso-
lated island, separated by water
and official indifference from
the capital and modernity feel a
part of something big and
secure. It made sense, then,
that the school day began with
a heartfelt request to God in
song to “Save our gracious
King or Queen” and grant him
or her long life and continued
dominion over us.

The main business of the
school. day was the, three

homeland other than the one
on which they were born and

charged into with the “Valley

‘ of Death” with the brave, but

foolishly led British “Six Hun-
dred”. They had wandered
with the famed Ms Nightingale
among those left sadly wound-
ed by that ruinous cavalry
charge. In imagination, they
strolled with the poet
Wordsworth over dales filled
with daffodils, although their
floral reality consisted mainly
of periwinkles and shepherd’s
needle, which had not yet been
praised in poetry.

voices rang out one minute

to Scottish highlanders and

doubtful that a single child ever
saw the inaptness of speaking
of “darkies” and “longing for
de ol’ plantation”.

Despite the incongruities of a

British-flavoured curriculum ~

for rural Bahamian children,
there are many facets of ‘the
lessons learned ‘in the one-
room schoolhouses that wis-
dom would encourage today’s
curriculum planners to note.
The primary goal was the incul-
cation of solid literacy, devel-
oping the ability to “do sums in

one’s head” and read with °

comprehension and without
moving the lips when engaged
in “silent” silent reading. As
far as numeracy was con-
cerned, a pre-Independence
child of only middling intelli-
gence could put the average
calculator-toting student of
today to shame with ability to

multiply and divide mentally.

This proficiency was enhanced
by daily drills of the multipli-
cation tables to times twenty,
growth of skill and speed often
aided by a judicious flick of a
“switch” of tamarind or anoth-
er tree with strong and flexi-
ble young branches. ~

The increasing attrition of lit-

“THE COMPANY YOU KEEP”

TOP COP JOINS WE

MR. CARL KEMP. as born in Andros and attended the Long Bay Cays Public School, attained a General Certificate of
Education in English Language at Freeport High School and completed Stages I, II and II Bookkeeping at Sylvia Gillis
College. ;

In February 1965, Mr Kemp jointed the Royal Bahamas Police Force, ultimately attaining the rank of Assistant Superintendent

of Police (A.S.P), and spent the next.thirty years of his life honing his expertise in various areas of policing. His intensive.

training inchided many local and international training courses at the Police Academies in London and Jamaica where he

studied S.I.B Procedures, court Investigations, Espionage, Sabotage, Terrorism, Counter Surveillance and Classification of

Documents.-Mr-Kempalso served-for eteverr years-at-the Security and Intelligence Branch where he was in charge of the

section that covered VIP protection services and intelligence investigations for thosé applying for Bahamian citizenship and
- applicants for governitnent jobs, just to name-a few areas-where his expertise and rigorous training proved advantageous

Perhaps his most important posting as a Police Officer was his service as the principal bodyguard for the late Prime Minister,
the Right Hon. Sir Lynden Pindling, where he served with distinction for eleven years. It was while he was traveling with Sir
Lynden all over the globe and interacting with dignitaries at every level that Mr Kemp truly gained an appreciation for the
finer points of VIP service, a knowledge that he brings to his new position at WEMCO.

... When he retired from the Police Force, Mr Kemp managed his own business in South Andros, but he missed the challenges of his former career, so he moved
_back to’Nassau and reconnected with another former Police Officer who he has known all his life: Mr Henry Wemyss, now the President and CEO of WEMCO.

ore ‘Although WEMCO had always offered VIP services and intelligence investigations, Mr Wemyss, sensitive to the fact that his clients were demanding more and
, more from these two areas, was looking to expand these services into their own full-fledged ‘Department within WEMCO.
“With Mr Kemp, I knew that I had finally found just the persons to head up WEMCO’s new Department,” Mr Wemyss states. “He is honest, reliable, dedicated
and brings a wealth of experience in this area to his new position at WEMCO. Even more importantly, Mr Kemp is a true team player and will enhance WEMCO’s
“portfolio of security services immeasurably. We are. * Mr Wemyss concluded, “expecting great things from him in this most demanding and fast-growing
. department.” ;

Mr Kemp is looking forward to the challenges of his new position, although he will be back in very familiar territory as he utilizes the national and international
investigative network he built up during his Police work to provide full and complete investigations of all kinds for WEMCO’s clients, both in The Bahamas an

4. d abroad. He will also be able to share his extensive knowledge in the area of VIP services and bodyguarding with the select staff of WEMCO that will work
under his supervision, creating a cadre of the most well trained men and women in this field that The Bahamas has to offer.

At long last, thanks to the vision of Mr Henry Wemyss and the proficiency of Mr Carl Kemp, The Bahamas has first class, high quality Intelligence Investigations
and VIP Services that has no competition and will meet all the needs of WEMCO’s 21st century, multi-national clients.

For more inforniation on WEMCO’s new Intelligence Investigations and VIP Services Department, please contact WEMCO’s Customer Service Department

“Influenza pandemics have

By contrast, it said, the FNM granted con-
tracts to people from every political affili-
ation and those with no affiliation

“Once again the governing party is mov-

ing in the wrong direction by significantly
reducing access to contracts by those who
‘are not their known supporters. We will
award contracts on a fairer basis and bring
more transparency to this process,” the
FNM said.
:» Despite the more than $11 billion worth
of‘heads of agreement announced by the
government the FNM said that it can point
ito very few projects that have started in
‘earnest.

“Unemployment is up. Towards the end
of its single term in office the government
has few things to which it can point to show
they weren’t all show,” the FNM said.

The FNM said that it will create.a

greater culture of strategic planning with-
in government and restore effective plan-
ning and evaluation in the Office of the
Prime Minister.

“The PLP Government’s failures are a
combustible mix of poor planning and even
poorer execution. The FNM team will once
again usher in an era of competence, effi-
ciency and results,” the party said.

It pointed out that the office of the prime
minister, with access to various policy
experts within and outside government,
must be responsible for advising the gov-
ernment on a variety of policy issues. It
should also assist the government with the
monitoring and evaluation of government
policies and programmes.

“One feature of this office will be a risk

assessment, programme that will help the
government monitor long-term trends, and
threats to. the well-being of Bahamians.
While crises:are inevitable, many can be
avoided through long-range planning and
vigilance. Unfortunately, the present gov-
ernment prefers to govern in a constant
crisis mode, many of their own making.”

The FNM said it will also transform the _

Ministry of Public Service into a reorga-
nized Department of Public Service and
Management which will place great empha-
sis on how the service may more effective-
ly manage public resources, achieve greater
productivity and deliver more efficient user
friendly services.

“The present government has talked a
great deal about public sector reform and

transforming government, but, has done
very little.
“Systemic rather than Miccenea trans-

formation is now needed. if we are to pro- .

vide government for the 21st gente ne
party said.) }

Toward this end the FNM said that if it
becomes the next government, taking into
account the advice of consultants and
experts, will look into every area of gov-
ernment operations, listen to the concerns
of all stakeholders and design and imple-
ment improved systems and processes,
including the role to be played by Local
Government.

“Central to all our efforts will be the
achievement of greater efficiencies within
government and the effective delivery of
every service for the Bahamian taxpayer
whom government too often burdens
through chronic delays, poor systems man-
agement and simply bad service,” the par-
ty said.

As Mr Cartwright pointed out, the Marriage Act dictates that a
person is supposed to apply for a licence, receive a certificate, then. post
a notice advertising the intended union, which should be displayed for
at least a week.

In a marriage that involves a foreigner, he said, the foreigner must
be a resident of the area for at least 15 days. However, ‘Mr Cartwright
said that to his knowledge, none of these guidelines“ was followed,
and the woman in question had not been on the island: for more than
a week.

Mr Cartwright promised that he would allow the police to do their

“The ballot was a secret

been said from a political
platform by the leader of the

‘prohibition or prescription

tion with regard to the vote.
We have not announced

the side opposite sought: to

said.
Citing Mr Ingraham’s
statement that if the FNM:

Mitchell said:

“Each year some 20,000

and general business is: .

increasing,” he said. me
Mr Mitchell also criticised.
the FNM for giving the inter-.

impression that the Bahamas
is a divided country.
“Normally, foreign affairs:

of the country to the world.

outside world.

“Perhaps the fact that gen-
eral elections are coming
may be the driving force
behind the comments hop-
ing that this will promote
their political fortunes,” he
said.

Mr Mitchell emphasised
that the Bahamas govern-
ment only accepted the
advice of the Permanent
Mission after extensively
reviewing all the records.

“Before accepting the
advice of our officials, we
wanted to be sure that the
Bahamas’ position at the UN
on May 9 was consistent with
previous positions with

taken by the Bahamas,” he

The minister tabled the

the Bahamas on the embar-
go imposed by the ba
against Cuba.

He pointed out that since,
the FNM came into power

iin 1992, the Bahamas never

took the US’ side on the
issue.

“On each occasion since
1992, save twice in 1992, the
Bahamas voted with the vast
majority of members of the
General Assembly against
the embargo imposed by the
US.

“Even in 1992 and 1993:
the previous administration
did not vote with the US but
abstained. If the Cuban gave

odious then why did he (Mii
Ingraham) not change the;
Bahamas’ position when*it
was his time,” he said. *?

Mr Mitchell said that there;
were country specific reso-
lutions to condemn Cuba for’

: its human rights conduct on:

seven occasions while the:
FNM was in power. +!

“On every one of those:
votes, the Bahamas Embassy:
at the UN was instructed to:

Bank’s net income

BANK of the
Bahamas Interna-

revealed that net
income for the first
nine months of fis-
cal 2006 - had
increased year-
over-year by 36 per

the latter figure
already exceeding
profits for the 2005
full-year.

Paul McWeeney,
the bank’s manag-
ing director, said in
a statement: “The nine-month
results have already surpassed
total performance for all of last
year with net income amount-
ing to $7.8 million, represent-
ing a 36.15 per cent increase
over last year.

performance to the
overall condition of
the Bahamian
economy, with
loans and advances
up more than 40
per cent due to an
aggressive mort-

The bank’s total
assets were ahead
year-on-year by 32
per cent, standing
at $524 million at
the end of the third
quarter on March
31, 2006.

Bank of the Bahamas Inter-
national saw its return on equi-

increase, the latter up to $0.50.
The recent $25 million rights
issue achieved a better than 17

The bank’s prepaid and gift

to a 51.65 per cent rise in non-

also boosted by loan closing

Bridge Authority’s
132% income rise

_ & By NEIL HARTNELL
Tribune Business Editor

ALTHOUGH the Paradise
Island Bridge Authority’s net
income increased by 132 per
cent to $964,532 in fiscal 2005,

.its financial performance is
“still far off the mark” from
enabling it to pay off its $28
million bond issues.

Bradley Roberts, minister of
works and public utilities, told
the House of Assembly yes-
terday that net income for the
year to December 31, 2005,
had risen by $548,736 over
:2004’s $415,796.

However, while the Bridge
Authority’s 2005 performance
was “a positive step in the right
direction”, it will eventually
have to repay a $28 million
bond issue that was sold to
institutional and _ public
investors on March 22, 1999.

The bond issue proceeds

But still ‘far off the
mark’ from being
able to repay $28m

loans and carry out bridge
repairs.

The bond issue was sold in
four tranches, with different
coupons and maturity dates
attached. The first $5 million
slice matures on March 24,
2014, and the remaining
tranches mature on the same
dates in 2019, 2024 and 2029.

the bond principal will be
repaid to bondholders should

to 2.3 per cent for the previ-
ous year.

While the: Government was
pinning its hopes on. better
administration to increase tax-
es and other revenues,
ECLAC warned this would
not be enough to control the
recurring fiscal deficits, due to
increased government spend-
ing provoked by public sector
salary increases.

“The increase in collections
will be insufficient to offset the
additional expenditure attrib-
utable to the rises in wages and
benefits paid to civil servants,
as well as to members of the
police and national defence
forces, and to education

expenses,” ECLAC said.
“Improvements in infrastruc-
ture will push up capital expen-
diture.”

And the UN body added:
“The fiscal deficit will add to
the public debt, which is cause
for concern. This debt, which
includes guarantees of debt of
public corporations, stood at
44.3 per cent of GDP at the
end of 2004, and increased by a
nominal 10 per cent in the 12
months to June 2005.”

The ECLAC warning comes
just after the Central Bank of
the Bahamas’ 2005 annual
report revealed that the 2004-
2005 fiscal deficit rose from
$166.4 million in 2003-2004 to

$175.5 million, some $12.1 mil-

While revenue collections in

Total spending for 2004-2005

APPLICATIONS for building permits
on New Providence increased by 33 per
cent to 846 in the 2006 first quarter, with

the minister of public works and utili- .

ties describing this and other data as evi-
dence of “a significant building boom in
the Bahamas”.

Bradley Roberts told the House of
Assembly that out of the 846 applica-
tions, his ministry had approved 554. The
approvals were for the construction of
buildings with a collective value of
$104.785 million, a rise in value of 14 per
cent compared to the 2005 first quarter.

Bahamas ‘building boom’

Approvals had increased by 26.7 per
cent, Mr Roberts said.

He added that 383 buildings were com-
pleted - and received occupancy certifi-

cates - during the 2006 first quarter, a.

90.5 per cent increase year-on-year,
based on building inspections data.

The value of buildings completed had
decreased. by almost 50 per cent, Mr
Roberts acknowledged, attributing this to
the fact that completions in the 2006 first
quarter consisted largely of smaller pri-
vate residences and apartments, com-
pared to “large commercial resorts” that
were finished in early 2005.

The minister added that 2005’s value
was also boosted by the inclusion of com-

pleted renovation work at the RIU Par-
adise Island resort, formerly the Sheraton
Grand. .

Mr Roberts said there was a 91.7 per
cent increase in construction starts on
New Providence during the 2006 first
quarter, based on 372 inspections car-
ried out by his ministry’s Buildings Con-
trol Division... 2 Ra

The value of these new starts was
$23.421 million greater than that for the
2005 first quarter, which he said repre-
sented a 65 per cent increase.

So, what is the real benefit to _

companies from upgrading
their technology? Benefits can
be minimal if training is not
included when deploying solu-
tions. Technology solutions can
eliminate inefficient work prac-
tices. However, they won’t- if
staff do. not know how to use
them.

A good example of this is e-
mail upgrades. Advanced e-
mail solutions can deliver sig-
nificant productivity gains to
an organisation. However, if
staff are going to only use e-

mail to send and receive, a
company will not get the antic- ©

see a significant improvement

Company managers recog-
nise that their companies are
not seeing the full value
derived from their IT invest-

officers are very tight with their
technology budgets. To gain
funding, a technology solution
must have an immediate return
on investment.

It is not the technology that

ed the fact that the Bridge Authority’s

Mr Roberts said the Bridge Authori-

$4.425 million the year before.

He attributed the improvement to the

THE Ministry of Finance’s
legal adviser yesterday said she
felt the Bahamian financial ser-
vices regulatory regime had
higher standards than those
found in many OECD-mem-
ber nations, despite these
countries leading the initiative
to ‘blacklist’ the Bahamas in
2000.
Rowena Bethel told: a
Bahamas Institute of Financial
Services seminar that the

regulatory body, or ‘super reg-
ulator’, was about three years
away.

Question

The question, she said, was
who would pay for it and
whether it could be imple-
mented in stages.

Ms Bethel added that there
needed to be changes within
the industry as this was done,
because the “one size fits all
approach to business could not

explained, was any institution

that while the Bahamas had
faced heavy criticism from the
Financial Action Task Force
(FATF), which ultimately led
to its 2000 blacklisting, she per-
sonally felt the Bahamas had
‘higher regulatory standards
than many OECD states. This
was despite the Bahamas per-
forming some of the required
supervisory steps in a differ-
ent way.

The Tribune revealed previ-

ings, the Trinidadian industrial

ranging from retail to
services and automo-
dustries, was part of the

food products.
While the US court may

‘approve the Fidelity-structured

offer, that may not be the end
of the story, though. This is
because the National Invest-
ment Policy stipulates that the
retail sector is reserved for 100
per cent Bahamian ownership.

Advantage

BK Foods' main advantage
is that it is an all-Bahamian
offer, meaning that their bid
would not require Cabinet or
National Economic Council
(NEC).approval. The only
approval necessary would be
Exchange Control approval to
allow Winn-Dixie to repatri-
ate its profits on the sale.

Neal & Massy is a foreign-
owned conglomerate, and its
involvement would go against
the Government's National
Investment Policy, which
requires retail to be 100 per
cent Bahamian-owned.

However, Bahamas Super-
markets is already foreign
majority-owned through Winn-
Dixie, so some have pointed
out that allowing in an owner-
ship group with some foreign
involvement would be no dif-

ferent from the ‘situation that

exists today.

Yet with a general election
less than a year away, the Gov-
ernment might find it politi-
cally difficult to approve a bid
for Bahamas Supermarkets
that had a foreign component,
rather than the all- Bahamian
BK Foods offer.

Still, the scene could be set
for a conflict between the US
Bankruptcy Court, if it
approves an offer with some
foreign ownership, and the
Bahamian government and its

investment policy.

The advantage of any group
involving Neal & Massy would
be the huge financial and logis-
tical resources at the disposal,
plus the expertise in operating
and running supermarket
chains, and inventory and sup-
ply chain management.

Several sources have sug-
gested that both groups could
be massively overpaying for
Bahamas Supermarkets, valu-
ing it at between $30-$35 mil-
lion at most.

This is because the company

- owns none of its 12 stores or

headquarters, leasing all the
properties, which means that
the buyer will gain an operat-
ing business, fixtures and fur-
nishings, only.

Value

However, the value of Winn-
Dixie’s stake is based on the
price Bahamas Supermarkets
shares trade at on the over-
the-counter market.

Both bidders are likely to
have valued the company on
a financial basis, based on net
income and dividends. BK
Foods’ $50 million price was
about 8x net income.

44.1 per cent of government
spending this fiscal year, due
to “provisions for pay increas-

- es for select groupings of the

civil service, including nurses

. and teachers”.

The rising salary bill is likely
to concern fiscal hawks such

as the Nassau Institute, espe-.

cially in light of recent remarks
by the public service minister,
Fred Mitchell, that the Gov-
ernment was looking at
whether to hire an. additional
1200 public servants and waive
the entry qualification require-
ments. —

Mr Mitchell is likely to argue
that this measure is necessary

to help ease the major prob-

lem of youth unemployment
in the Bahamas, but critics are
likely to claim that it will be
no substitute for dealing with

-chronic structural problems,

such as poor skills and a lack of
basic education, among the
workforce.

In addition, the increasingly

bloated civil service is helping :

Looking back at 2005, Mr
Roberts said that year had
seen the completion of 2,347
housing units, a 46.3 per cent
rise over 2004’s 1604 units.

Housing starts for 2005 rose
by 344 units, reaching 1,540,
and representing a 28.7 per
cent growth over 2004.

Occupancy certificates were
received for 1,278 buildings in
2005, which had a total value of
$346.639 million, an 84.59 per

He added that some 992
construction starts were
recorded for 2005, a 168 appli-
cation increase, generating a

- total value of $151.525 million.

This was a 25.7 per cent or

Mr Roberts said the con-

likely to be even brighter, but

statistics on the industry had |

He added that Family Island
Boards had been given instruc-

TRIBUNE SPORTS



Recognitio



for

Tom Grant at last

T SEEMS as if Tom 'the

Bird' Grant may finally .

get the recognition that he
deserves.

For many years, there has
been talk about various-sport-
ing facilities being named after
the living sports icon, but so
far nothing has materalised.

On Monday night at the
Sports Advisory Council's
conclave, Minister Neville
Wisdom disclosed that the
Bahamas Government will
honour Grant by renaming
the park adjacent to the AF
Adderley Junior High School
in honour of him.

Grant has been a legend
around the AF Adderley
School located on Tonique
Williams-Darling Highway,
having served as a physical
education teacher and coach
for more than two decades.

So with the highway being
named after the Olympic and
World Championships' dou-
ble gold medalist, Wisdom
said it's only fitting that they
rename the park after Grant.

The facilities include tennis
and volleyball courts and two
basketball courts.

There is also a softball field

and a large area for parking

and other recreational activi-
ties.

ture at AF Adderley for the

softball event

a SOFTBALL.
._By KELSIE JOHNSON
Junior Sports
Reporter

THE Bahamas will field

two teams. at the under 19.

level to compete in the

annual Pony Caribbean

Zone Girls Softball Tour-
nament.

The two teams will com-
prise of members from
both the New Providence
Softball . Association
(NPSA) and the Grand
Bahama Softball Associa-
tion (GBSA).

The Pony Caribbean
Zone tournament is a
Friendship Series, which is
designed to improve the
level of play by offering

the teams more competi-.

tion.

This year’s series will be
held June 29th to July 2nd,
and will be played between
St Maarten and Anguilla.

Participating Caribbean
countries are Aruba, St.
Croix, Bahamas (Nassau
and Freeport), Saba, St.
Eustatius, Dominican

Republic, Panama, and.

host countries Anguilla and
St. Martin Softball Associ-
ation. A guest teams from
the Pony US East Zone
and the Pony US South
Zone will also feature.

Delight

Expressing delight that
teams from the Bahamas
were selected to partici-
pate, president of the
NPSA Steven Coakley
viewed the invitation as
another opportunity for the
younger softball players to
gain exposure and experi-
ence in the Friendship
Series.

He said: “We are com-
mitted to this programme,
our youth development

‘two years.

programme and this is one
tournament we really want
to benefit from.

“We are in the process of
making the announcement

for the team, so all inter-

ested persons can come
and bea part.

“The invitation will not
only be extended to the
players currently under the
New Providence Softball
Association, but: we will be
sending out invitations to
all interested players espe-
cially on the high school
levels. When we make the
announcements we will
also provide a practice
schedule.”

Timing

Admitting that the tim-
ing for the tournament was
slated perfectly with the
NPSA’s goals, Coakley said

that the Pony Caribbean

Zone tournament will be
used a foundation for their
youth development project.

He added: “This is all
apart of the ongoing youth
development programme
that the NPSA is involved
in.

“This is the first tourna-
ment at this level for like
We’ve had
teams go to the other tour-
naments but that was sev-
eral years ago.

“Although we’ve had the
lapse in the programme |]
still believe the participa-
tion will be at a high level.
I think we can attract some
of the top players and the
other players who don’t
even take part in the
NPSA.” —

The team will be under
the leadership of Sidney
‘Bobby’ Fernander, with
Stephen 'Bishop' Beneby
as team manager and
Vernie Curry as head
coach.

majority of his adult years,
he's been a three-time sports-
man, having excelled in track
and field, volleyball and bas-
ketball.

During his earlier years in
sports, Grant was one of the

ory Grounds under the 'Sport-
ing Priest,' Father Marcian
Peters. Grant also left his
mark on the sport as a player,
having scored 48 points in a
game.

And in volleyball, Grant

top sprinters. He was a mem-
ber of the men's 4 x 100 relay
team that brought home the
first two medals on the track
from any international com-
petition.

He was also instrumental in
the growth and development
in basketball during the days
when it was played at the Pri-

also gained some local and
international recognition. He
was the first Bahamian to
coach a college or university
and he was also the first
Bahamian to become an inter-
national certified volleyball
referee.

_ In addition to being a play-
er in all three sports, Grant

went on to make a further
contribution, serving as an
executive in each of them,
either as a commissioner or
president.

Grant has enjoyed a colour-
ful career in sports and as he
continues to pass on his
knowledge and expertise to
his children, it's only fitting
that he be formally recognised
nationally for his contribu-

tions.

He and Leonard ‘Boston
Blackie’ Miller are probably
the two oldest unsung heroes

still alive, who have spent their |

entire lives assisting our young
people.

Yet, neither of these men
have anything that they can
show from a national recog-
nition perspective.

The park adjacent to the AF
Adderley High School is a
start for Grant.

Hopefully something can be

done for Miller as well.
These men have gone

beyond the call of duty mak-

ing their mark on local sports.
They deserve any and all the
recognition that they can get.

Let's give them their flowers
while they are with us so they
can enjoy it.

ENGLAND striker Michael
Owen said he’ll be fit to play at

‘the World Cup. Wayne Rooney

should learn next week whether
he can play alongside him.
Owen, who has played only
30 minutes for Newcastle since
breaking a bone in his foot on
Dec. 31, has taken part in two
practice matches with his Eng-
land teammates at a training
camp in Portugal this week.

“If there was a World Cup

game tomorrow, I’d be fit and
in condition to play,” Owen said
Wednesday.

The former Liverpool and
Real. Madrid forward said he
was treating his approach to the

‘World Cup, which opens June 9

in Germany, as he would pre-
season training.

“T see it as probably that, only
I’ve got the added advantage
that I’ve been on the treadmills,
bikes, and everything else for



the last three months,” Owen
said. “It’s driven me crackers,
but it’s kept me in good shape.”

With Rooney recovering
from a broken bone in his right
foot, Eriksson said he was
pleased to have at least one key
striker ready.

“It’s very important and he
(Owen) looks 100 percent fit
yesterday and today,” Eriksson
said. “I’m very confident that
he will be absolutely perfect for
the World Cup and very, very
hungry on football, and that’s
good.”

Eriksson said he still hopes
Rooney can play some role in
England’s three group games.
Rooney was injured May 7
playing for Manchester United
against Chelsea. Eriksson said
he will have the foot examined
by doctors on May 25.

“At least we will know much
more how the situation is,”
Eriksson said. “I’ve always been
positive, but not because of
medical reasons, I’m positive
because I think he will do

~ THURSDAY, MAY 18, 2006, PAGE 9B



absolutely everything to try to
get fit as soon as possible.”

England plays Paraguay on
June 10, Trinidad and Tobago
on June 15 and Sweden on June
20. If Rooney misses those
games, he could still come back
for the latter stages of the tour-
nament — if England gets
there.

“Wayne Rooney not in the
World Cup?” Eriksson said. “I
don’t think he even believes
that will be truth. Of course, he
should be there.”

Rooney didn’t travel to Por-
tugal, but stayed in England to
continue rehabilitation under
the supervision of Manchester
United doctors.

Eriksson said Liverpool mid-
fielder Steven Gerrard was a
possible option up front, too.

This will be Eriksson’s last
tournament as England coach.
The Swede, who has spent five
years as England’s first
foreign coach, will be succeeded

@ BASEBALL
By RENALDO DORSETT
Sports Reporter

THE Bahamas Baseball Feder-
ation is affirming its commitment
towards the development of base-
ball throughout the country by
beginning at the game’s most
basic level.

The BBF, in conjunction with —
Nova Southeastern University,
will conduct a coaching clinic
open to coaches throughout the
country, offering collegiate lev-
eled tutelage in baseball funda-
mentals.

The two-day clinic is scheduled
for Friday, October 20th at the
NSU campus in Ft. Lauderdale,
FL and Saturday, June 3rd at the
Freedom Farm Baseball Com-
plex in Nassau.

: The aim of the clinic is to aid
coaches in their ability to teach
baseball at any age level, with a
greater focus on younger players.

The clinic will focus on basic
fundamentals of teaching young
players the essentials of the game
of baseball, most notably, pitch-
ing, hitting, fielding, base running
and throwing. ;

The NSU coaching staff will
also advise coaches on proper
practice organisation, execution,
and strength and conditioning
practices in order to get the most
out of their young players.

President of the BBF, Greg
Burrows Sr., said the relationship
between the BBF and NSU has
been beneficial to both sides.

“We have had several kids go
over and play for Coach
Mominey at NSU, and they have
been down to watch Nationals for
a few years, and scout some tal-
ent,” he said, “So both sides have
benefited a lot.”

He said the clinic addresses
the necessity of properly prepar-
ing the country’s coaches.

“Tt is the BBF’s job to get our
coaches up to speed,” he said,
“With the coaches becoming
more knowledgeable it will help
to develop the game as a whole”

Located in Ft. Lauderdale, FL,
NSU has made significant
impressions in its Sunshine State
Conference and on the national
level.

NSU baseball has been ranked
as high as number 13 in NCAA
Division II and has averaged 30
wins per season since 2002.

The NSU coaching staff, has
coached together for six years
and brings decades of experience
which should prove beneficial to
Bahamian coaches.

Head Coach.Michael Mon-
imey has coached on the profes- —
sional level for six years and at
the collegiate level for 10-years.

Associate Head Coach Ray
Romero has produced two All-
American pitchers at NSU and
has coached three Major League
Baseball pitchers at the high ~
school level.

Larry Starr, Assistant Athletic
Director for Sports Medicine at
NSU, will also participate in the .
clinic. Starr spent 20 years as
Head Athletic Trainer for the
Cincinnati Reds and nine years as
the Head Athletic Trainer for the
Florida Marlins. He has been
inducted into both Florida’s and
Ohio’s Athletic Trainers Hall of
Fame.

Also attending the clinic will
be first year Assistant Coach Skip
Wiley and sixth year Assistant
Head Coach Ryan Romero.

Burrows said the BBF will
take further steps towards
implanting programs to help pro-
mote and develop baseball
throughout the country.

“We look forward to having
more clinics, perhaps two or three
times per year,” he said, ““We also
plan on watching the way colleges
and universities do things in
order to help our national pro-
gram.”

Junior Sports Reporter

THE Bahamas under 20
ladies National Team are on
their way to Turks and Caicos
Islands today to participate in
the annual Turks and Caicos
International Football Festi-
val (TCIFA).

The two day tournament,
which is set to take place Fri-
day and Saturday, will feature
a good mix of experienced
and collegiate players for the
Bahamas.

Although the coaching staff
doesn’t have the inside scope
on the teams participating,

- head coach Matthew Green

believes that the team’s blend
will give them the edge over
their competitors.

He said: “We.feel very con-
fident heading into, the tour-
nament. We feel as though
the younger players who have
been coming up through the —
ranks are capable of playing
at this level right now. They
are ready to handle the task.

“We also have a lot of
experienced players on the

-team:and they’ve been work-
‘ing together for like five years
now. We’ve put together
what we feel as though is our
strongest team, which should
propel us for a tournament
win.”

The Bahamas will open
their tournament play on Fri- ;
day against hosts Turks and;
Caicos, and will return on
Saturday to take on the:Cay- :
man Islands.

This will be the first time
the tournament will host
national teams, in the past the
tournament was offered to
‘club teams.

At last year’s champi-
onships, Leandra Ferguson, a ;
member of the Cavalier.-Foot-'
ball Club team, won the most
valuable player award,

Ferguson along with Tal-
itha Wood and Gerrianne
Dorsette will lead this year’s
team. - te toh

Green added: “Although=~
some of the girls just 3*<:
returned, the cohesiveness‘of
the team is still there, when
they were practising it’
seemed as if they’ve been
playing together forever.

“We have a lot of experi-
ence having played in some
tournaments prior to this one.
I know off hand that Turks
and Caicos have recently

played in a tournament:so
they should be tournament
ready. The Cayman Islands
team should be stronger than
the Turks and Caicos Island
team. But we feel very
confident that the our players
are ready for the competition
and will fare well against
them.”

Arnold Ran Arnold's Dept. Store on Bay Street for well over
thirty years and was an avid fisherman and gardener. He loved
being outdoors - either in his boat with his line and a cup of
coffee or out in the yard with his banana and pear trees and
his tomatoes and mangoes. But even more so he was a man
who loved his wife and children passionately and fully. Corned
beef and grits in the morning and steamed conch in the evening |
made him a happy man and a slice of raisin pound cake or his
sister Gloria's bread pudding for dessert sent him over the
moon. He always had juicy fruit gum in his pocket for the
children and a box of chocolates for every occasion.











He was predeceased by his parents John and Mary Ageeb
and his sisters, Gloria and
Theresa Ageeb.






Mr. Ageeb is survived by his wife, Dr. Gloria Ageeb; 2
daughters; E.J. Maria Ageeb and Lupita Ageeb-Rolle, 3 sons,
