Bannister claims
Maynard-Gibson made
comments possibly
‘prejudicial’ to
policeman’s case

@ By NATARIO McKENZIE ©

“THE LAWYER represent-

ing the police officer accused
of the March 27 shooting
death of Deron Bethel claims
that. Attorney General
Allyson Maynard-Gibson has
made comments that could be
“prejudicial” to his client’s
case.

Lawyer Desmond Bannis-
ter, who is representing Cor-
poral Nathaniel Charlow, 33,
yesterday also accused the
Attorney General, who is MP
for the Pinewood Gardens
constituency, of bringing the
concerns of her constituents
into her role as attorney gen-
eral. Officer; Charlow was
arraigned on the charge of
manslaughter yesterday.

Noting that he could not
comment on any evidence in
‘officer Charlow’s manslaugh-
ter case, Mr Bannister said:
“In our system of justice it is
wrong for an attorney general
to make statements in public
which can be interpreted as
being prejudicial to someone’s

case who the attorney general

has to consider at some stage.

“It is wrong because it
leaves an impression that jus-
tice is not going to be served.
The attorney'general is an
independent officer and there
ought not.to be constituent
concerns coming into matters

that the attorney general has
to deal with. I believe that this
is|a sad day for the adminis-
tration of justice in our coun-
try. It sends the wrong mes-
sage to police officers whose
lives are on the line every
day,” Mr Bannister said fol-
lowing his client’s arraignment
yesterday.

Mr Bannister said he was
certain that he would be able
to mount a vigorous defence
for his client.

Dozens of plainclothes
police officers returned to

Bank Lane yesterday in

another show of support for
their colleague.

Inspector Bradley Sands,
executive chairman of the
Police Staff Association, made
it clear yesterday that the offi-
cers were not in protest
against any actions by the
attorney general.

“J want to make it quite
clear that the officers of the
force are here to lend support
to their colleague and are not

- protesting any actions of the

attorney general. We are here
to.lend moral support for our
colleague. We do not want
anyone to misinterpret our
support as a demonstration
against the laws of the
Bahamas. .

MP claims Grand Bahama
in precarious position
ahead of hurricane season

@ By RUPERT MISSICK Jr
Chief Reporter

INEFFICIENT and ineffective
management of NEMA funds by
government has put Grand
Bahama in a precarious position
heading into the next hurricane
season, according to MP for
Lucaya Neko Grant.

With the start of the 2006 hur-_

ricane season only days away, Mr
Grant pointed out that the oppo-
sition has yet to receive reports
on NEMA’s expenditure from
2004.

Mr Grant said he was distressed

Disabled group hits out
at minister over eviction

@ By KRYSTEL ROLLE

A GROUP of disabled per-
sons has criticised Minister of
Social Services Melanie Grif-
fin for her “insensitivity”
their plight — after they learned
they would be evicted from
their second home in as many
years.

One cannot see, one cannot
hear and two cannot walk but
they all have wants, needs and
dreams. And one of their
dreams is to find a home where
they can rest their heads per-
manently.

Almost one year ago, on
June 1, 2005, Jerome Thomp-
son, Jervaisian Stuart, Sean

Flowers and Kenneth Storr
were evicted from the Cheshire.
Home on Dolphin Drive,— the
only home in the Bahamas
built specifically to suit the
needs of persons with disabili-
ties.

Next week they will be evict-
ed yet again from the apart- |
ment the government, partic-
ularly the department of social
services and community devel-
opment, set up for them.

Since their problems began

Public asked for feedback on proposed

Family and Child Protection Act

@ By DENISE MAYCOCK
Tribune Freeport Reporter

FREEPORT - The government
is asking for feedback from the
public on the newly-proposed
Family and Child Protection Act,
2006.

If passed, the law would give
single fathers the right to seek cus-
tody of their children.

Department of Social Services
assistant directors Lillian Quant-
Forbes and Paula Marshall
announced that the consultation
will begin in Grand Bahama.

Town meetings have been
planned for Freeport and Eight
Mile Rock to discuss the Act and
to get input from residents before
it becomes law.

Ms Forbes said that the Min-
istry of Social Services and Com-
munity Development has under-
taken to look at various Acts that
affect her department or ‘the
Department of Rehabilitative Ser-
vices.

If the law is passed, it will result
in the repeal of The Children and
Young Persons Act, Chapter 97,
The Maintenance of Emigrants
Act, Chapter 128; The Guardian-
ship and Custody of Infants Act,
Chapter 132;The Affiliation Pro-
ceedings Act, Chapter 133; and
The Infants Relief Act, Chapter
134.

It will also result in some
changes to several sections of the
Penal Code, including Chapter 84,
Sections 4, 15, and 91; and The
Adoption of Children’s Act, Chap-
ter 131, Section 17.

Ms Forbes said Minister
Melanie Griffin and a team from

‘New Providence will attend the

town meeting at Mary Star of the
Sea auditorium at 7pm:on May
31, and the meeting at the
Bartlette Hill Primary School audi-
torium on June 5. ;
“We want the public to be
aware that this proposed Act seeks
to address the issue of the rights of
single fathers seeking custody of
their children in any court; we
need the public to come out and
voice their concerns about what
they would like to see changed or
put in the Act,” she said
Mrs Marshall said that for more

than five years, the department’

has been trying to sensitise the
public to the importance of this
matter. :
“We had a number of seminars
and fathers were able to express
their deep concern about the fact

that the law did not speak to their

"rights as fathers and other persons

in the child’s life,” she said. ,
Ms Marshall said the new Act
also addresses maintenance rights

She noted that under, the new law,

tributing, regardless of the mar-

BFCE calls proposed
act ‘a step backward’

l@ By KRYSTEL ROLLE ii



BAHAMIAN Fathers for Children Everywhere is calling the pro-
posed Family and Child Protection Act, 2006 a step backward.

According to BFCE president Clever Duncombe, the group has
several problems with the Act’and plans to take a stand for children
across the Bahamas.

He said the Department of Social Services appointed a committee to
prepare a Bill for the Act —to protect children from “all forms of dis-
crimination and to ensure that the child will never be separated from
either parent, which is appropriate to his or her evolving capacities.”

“When we look at what is suggested in Section 6 (1), Parental
Responsibility, we believe fundamentally that this is an attempt to
ignore, disrespect, the coalition for education report, im respect to
single parenting and most importantly our international obligations, said
Mr Duncombe in a statement.

According to Duncombe, the suggested recommendations section 6
(1) reads: “Parents have joint primary responsibility for raising the child
but in the case ‘of a child born out of wedlock the father does not
have parental responsibility unless he satisfies the criteria set out in sec-
tion 14 (2). ; a

“This lowers the standards,” according to Mr Duncombe.

BFCE alleged that the proposed recommendations violate five arti-
cles that are critical for social and national development. | :

In 1991, Mr Duncombe said, the ‘Bahamas ratified the United
Nations Treaty to eliminate all forms of discrimination — particularly
against children. nays So FP a

He claimed the proposed Bill is inconsistent with treaty obliga-
tions.

After reviewing the recommendations, Duncombe’s organisation
came up with their own suggestion for Section 6 (1), which they said is
in accordance with the UN’s stipulations:

“Parents should. have joint primary responsibility for raising the

” child and the state shall support them in this. The state shall provide
‘appropriate assistance to parents in child raising.”

The BFCE is a non-profit organisation that has been advocating for
father’s rights for the last three and a half years.

court case



Bi FORMER United States
ambassador Richard
Blankenship

FORMER US Ambassador
to the Bahamas Richard J
Blankenship appeared as a sur-
prise witness in the Federal
Court trial of Grammy award-
winning gospel musician Phil
Driscoll.

Driscoll, Mr Blankenship’s

' brother-in-law, was indicted

with his wife Lynne on charges
of conspiracy from 1995
through 2002 and evading fed-
eral income taxes owed for
1996 through 1999.

Government prosecutors
have accused the couple of fun-
neling personal money through
their music ministry-in a tax-
cheating scheme.

Mrs Chris Blankenship,
mother of Lynne Driscoll and
Richard Blankenship, was also
charged, but she died just
before the trial started, it was

- reported in the US newspaper
~ The Chattanoogan.

Closing its case against
Driscoll and his wife, prosecu-
tors in a surprise move last
week produced Mr Blanken-
ship as one of the last witnesses
to take the stand.

Mr Blankenship testified
that he worked for the couple’s
Cleveland, Tennessee-based

ministry in 1994 and became, |}

concerned about the mie of
ministry and personal £ nd Ss.
“There was little or‘no dif-

IMMIGRATION Minister
Shane Gibson has denied that
any complaints or requests
were made to him in connec-
tion with his controversial raid
on Eleuthera — in which a num-
ber of legal persons were
allegedly detained and trans-
ported to Nassau.

‘Abner Pinder, the chief

councillor for Spanish Wells;
Fred Smith, president of Grand
Bahama Human Rights Asso-
ciation (GBHRA) and FNM
leader Hubert Ingraham all
criticised the seizure of per-
sons who were not illegal
immigrants.

“We haven’t received any
requests from anybody about
any problems — the only person
who complained about it was
Hubert Ingraham; we have not
received one complaint from

' anybody who was affected,”
said Mr Gibson.

The minister added that he
was not aware that any legal
Haitians who were brought to
New Providence were returned
to Eleuthera aboard a vessel
belonging to Bahamas Fast
Ferries.

“T am not aware of what
happened. Nobody made any
representation to me or the
department on this. I can’t say
for sure that what you’re say-
ing is the truth,” Mr Gibson
said when claims to this effect
were put to him.

Abner Pinder claimed he
footed the $9,000 bill for the
ferry which returned the immi-
grants, and made a public
request for Mr Gibson to apol-
ogise for the wrongful deten-
tion of some immigrants.

Mr Pinder also made a
request to the commissioner of

police for reimbursement of
the $9000 — but according to
sources the transaction has not
taken place.

Mr Pinder was off the island
yesterday and could not be
reached for comment.

“Anybody who we would
have picked have a right to ask
us whatever they want to ask
us, so what I’m saying is I
haven’t been asked anything
from anybody who has been
picked up, or from any organ-
isation purporting to be repre-
senting anybody,” Mr Gibson
said.

Criticism

The GBHRA also criticised
government for what it termed
“inhumane and degrading
treatment” of Haitian immi-
grants during the raid.

Government announces plan
to buy extra cemetery space

@ By MARK HUMES

MINISTER of Works
Bradley Roberts yesterday
announced that government
has agreed to purchase addi-
tional property at the West-
ern Cemetery in an effort to
alleviate a shortage of bur-
ial space in New Providence.

Hoping to generate an
additional 1,000 cemetery
plots, Mr Roberts said that
several months ago, govern-
ment made a decision to
acquire the land from the top
of Delancy Street down to
Augusta Street, where it
intersects with the Western
Cemetery.

Additionally, he said that
actions are being undertaken
to expand on the Southern
Graveyard property. »

After reviewing recom-

mendations to enhance the .°

state of government-owned

cemeteries on the island, the ~

minister took an opportunity
yesterday to tour graveyards
to see how they space be
used more efficiently.
Noting the historical sig-
nificance of the architecture
of many mausoleums, Mr
Roberts said; “we will be
consulting persons familiar

i with antiques on how to bet-

ter use the monuments in the
Western Cemetery.”
“Additionally,” he contin-

. uéd, “we willbe bringing in

an expert to advise us on
how. to best preserve some
of the headstones in the both
the, Western and Eastern
cemeteries that will be of his-
torical value to visitors and
other person that are inter-
ested in antiques.”

It was only last week that
Mz Roberts called on family
members with loved ones
buried in government ceme-
teries to assist his ministry in

, the upkeep of the grave sites,

saying, “the government is
responsible to keep the
grounds in reasonable shape.
But if a grave needs some
attending to, it is the fami-
ly’s responsibility to do so.’
He said that his ministry’s
effort to upgrade and

enhance its burial facilities has
been in the making for some
time now, and that he looks for-
ward to the public doing its part

The night the Queen was kept waiting

IN APRIL'S edition of the Commonwealth
Press Union’s quarterly magazine Patsy
Robertson, a former Director of Information
and Public Affairs at the Commonwealth Sec-
retariat, and a member of the CPU executive,
has written a tribute to Queen Elizabeth II on
her eightieth birthday.

Entitled, “Behind the composure, a Queen

of smiles...” she recalls public incidents in the |

Queen’s life to illustrate a pledge she made
fifty years ago “to dedicate herself to the ser-
Nice of the people of the Commonwealth.”

One of the many stories that Ms Robertson
vividly recalls is “the saga of the boat in the
Bahamas in 1987.”

The incident to which she referred hap-
pened during the Queen’s eight-day visit to the
Bahamas in October, 1985 for the meeting of
the Commonwealth Heads of Government
Conference (CHOGM). Although Miss
Robertson attended the event, her 1987 date
is incorrect.

This is what she wrote:

“For some réason there was a security alert
in Nassau, and the Royal Yacht Britannia on
which the Royal party was staying, was heav-
ily guarded at its berth in the harbour.

“On the night of the dinner for leaders,

some heads were advised not to drive by car

through the town to reach the Britannia, and
a group of about seven leaders — including
Prime Minister Rajiv Gandhi of India, Presi-
_dent Kenneth Kaunda and Mrs Kaunda of
Zambia, as well as the Ramphals (Sir Shri-
dath (Sonny) and Lady Ramphal) — elected
to go by yacht to the Britannia. Unfortunate-
ly, the message did not get through to the
security services guarding the Britannia. So,
when the yacht approached, it was ordered
~ to sail out to sea or it would be blown out of
the water.
\“Meanwhile, on the Britannia, the lateness
then the abserice of an important group of
-guests was noticed. The Queen came on deck
to look for them. TV cameramen waiting on
the dockside focused on an anxious Queen
scanning the dark sea and tapping her fingers,

-|. on the rail, a picture that went round the

world. Eventually, connections were made
and the yacht was'allowed to come into port.
As they filed past the gang plank, Lois Ram-
phal quipped to the Queen: ‘We are the boat
people Ma’am.’ ,

“There were many other occasions when
the Queen’s delight in the unexpected pene-
trated her composure.”

The “security alert” to which Ms Robertson
refers was not a security alert as we understand

_ it today against a backdrop of terrorism. The

alert to which she rcfers was a “se@urity alert”
to protect the late prime minister Sir Lynden
Pindling from the embarrassment of his for-
eign guests seeing placards being waved by
angry Bahamians after the release of the Com-
mission of Inquiry report into drug smuggling.

. Her visit came at a time of political unrest
and great dissatisfaction among Bahamians
with the Pindling government. Deputy prime
minister Arthur Hanna, now governor gen-
eral, had resigned from the Pindling cabinet in
the wake of the Commission hearings. He said
at the time that his conscience would not per-
mit him to continue: Sir Lynden had also fired
Perry Christie, now prime minister, and
Hubert Ingraham, now opposition leader,
from his cabinet before they could follow Mr
Hanna’s lead and carry out their own resig-
nation plans.

Demonstrations were organised by the
FNM along the routes taken by the delegates
to let them know that although the Queen
was. most welcome, they wanted her to
“denounce corruption.”

About 500 Opposition supporters cheered
the Queen, and the governor-general, as her
motorcade left the airport, but lustily booed
Sir Lynden and his-cabinet. She was greeted
with signs that read: “Welcome, but please
denounce corruption”; “The chief is a thief”;
and “How L O can you go.”

And so it was to avoid these demonstrators
that delegates’ chauffeurs were instructed on
the night of the Queen’s grand banquet on
HMS Britannia to avoid the Marlborough
Street route, and Prime Minister Pindling
decided that, despite the stormy night, it would
be less embarrassing to approach the royal
yacht by sea.

It was reported that the group started out in
an open boat. It was raining and the seas were
rough. The women started to feel ill. The par-
ty was transferred to a larger boat. According
to reports Lady Ramphal almost fell over-

board.

Mr Michael Shea, sécretary to the Queen.
apologised to the waiting press. He said he
had been told that there had been a bomb
scare on the Pindling yacht.

This was probably the most dramatic excuse
they could concoct to justify being an hour
late for a dinner date with the Queen.

Needless to say it made international news,
and even today it is remembered because it is
unheard of to keep the Queen waiting — but
that is what Sir Lynden Pindling did. And he
did so, not because he was ducking a bomb,
but because he was ducking the ire of Her
Majesty’s Loyal Opposition.

Even though she was ailing

on a quiet Sunday afternoon.
So she lived and so she died.

I met Kayla some twenty-
five years ago, and quickly dis-
covered that she was a rare

@ By KARIN HERIG
Tribune Staff Reporter

A PRIVATE jet carrying a
patient in need of medical
attention crash-landed in Exu-
ma early yesterday morning.

Although the aircraft sus-
tained substantial damage
when it crashed on the side of
the runway at Exuma’s Inter-
national Airport, there were
no fatalities and no injuries.

The Westwind jet, carrying
five passengers and three crew

experienced technical difficul-
ties shortly after lam.
Speaking with The Tribune
yesterday, Superintendent
Willard Cunningham, officer in
charge of Exuma and Ragged
Island, said that the jet was fly-
ing over Exuma when it expe-
rienced “electrical problems”.
“They attempted a night
landing here, unfortunately
their landing gear was also
compromised — which led to
the accident,” he said.
Although the airport was

“Tt all went very quick, and
the air traffic controller in Exu-
ma really didn’t have a chance
to respond, but these aircraft
have their own instruments, so
the landing shouldn’t have
been a problem if the landing
gear had functioned properly,”
he said.

Deputy director of Civil
Aviation Ivan Cleare told The
Tribune that the runway at
Exuma’s International Air-
port has the required lighting
to enable landings at night

no fatalities and no one sus-
tained any injuries in the
mishap,” Mr Cunningham said.

As the jet was reportedly
“totalled” as result of the crash
landing, the passengers had to
be flown on to the US in a dif-
ferent airplane.

“A second plane was sent
for. All eight passengers,
including the patient, were able
to travel on to Virginia (yes-
terday) morning, only a few
hours after the crash,” Mr Cun-
ningham said.

EXUMA’S building boom
has raised questions about the
future of the labour and hous-
ing markets — and may be con-
tributing to social tensions on
the quiet island.

Developments such as the
prestigious Emerald Bay resort
by Four Seasons have created
a surplus of jobs for Bahami-
ans, especially Exumians. ,

However some say this may
be too much of a good thing.

“T don’t think a lot of prepa-
ration was put into the eco-
nomic boom that has taken
place on Exuma,” said Antho-

E ny Musgrove, parliamentary

hopeful for the Exumas.
He explained that before
Emerald Bay was completed,

: the government began a com-

prehensive upgrade of infra-
structure on the island to
assuage doubts that the resort
would ever become a reality.

Mr Musgrove said that these
new facilities and amenities
made the island attractive to
other! Bahamians, and as a

? result, “there was a mass influx

of workers.”

In response to the sharp pop-
ulation growth, a new subdivi-
sion is being developed near
Moss Town, according to
Anthony Moss, MP for Exuma.

There are currently only 17

a

building boom on Exuma

occupied houses in the new
Redlands Subdivision, but
another 20 homes are expected '
to go up within months.

With workers coming in to
reap the benefits of the eco-
nomic gold rush, “there is
expected to be some anti-social
behaviour,” said Mr Musgrove.

“I think the reason is that
there were Exumians who kept
the island going when nothing
was happening, now they feel
like second class citizens.”

There are also rumours on
the island that with the
upsurge of economic activity
has come a rise in petty crime.

both agreed with this , but
Police Superintendent Williard
Cunningham did not. “Dispel
that myth immediately,” he told
The Tribune. “Crime is down.”

Though there is disagreement
about the crime rate, it remains
true that the population of Exu-
ma has increased almost 50 per

_cent since the boom. And the

government has responded to
the boom by expanding police
presence in the Exumas.
“With the good comes the
bad,” said Mr Moss. “Years ago
we had less than 20 police offi-
cers on the island, today we
have a total of 40 and over 25
police reservists.” :

in Ministry of Tourism. “The
Tourism Satellite Account devel-
opment committee was estab-
lished after it was decided that
the TSA was the best approach.”

According to the completed
Bahamas TSA, tourism directly
accounted for 21 per cent or
$1.17 billion of the $5.5 billion
GDP in 2003?

Even at its most narrow defi-
nition, tourism accounted for a
much larger portion of the
Bahamas’ economy than any
other economic sector.

“No other sector comes
close,” said Adam Sacks, the
consultant heading the study.

The nearest sector to tourism
was public administration and
defence, which accounted for
only 13.6 per cent of the econo-
my.

Real estate and bus services
accounted tor 13.5 per cent and
banking and insurance brought
in 11.7 per cent, while whole-
sale and retail trade brought
12.2 per cent, industry (mining,
manufacturing, electricity and
water) 8.8 per cent, and con-
struction 7.2 per cent.

Mr Sacks pointed out, how-
ever, that the full economic
impact of tourism activity is sub-
stantially greater than just the
direct earnings from tourism.

the economy include the supply

his concern on youth poverty

@ By Mark Humes

Finding the recipe for a cohesive
and tolerant society that does not pro-
duce angry youths continues to be the
mission of the Commonwealth Sec-
retariat said Secretary-general Donal
McKinnon.

Mr McKinnon is in New Providence
to address the Commonwealth Youth
Ministers Meeting (CYMM).

He told members of the press yes-
terday that high rates of youth unem-
ployment tend to generate more crim-
inal activity among that particular
group.

“There is a tremendous amount of
poverty, and we really have to do what
we can fo give young, people more
opportunity,” said Mr McKinnon.

Marginalised and without opportu-
nities, he warned, these angry young

develops education
programme in St Kitts:

people “can do a lot of damage.”

The secretary-general said that
youths, like all groups in society, must
be made to feel as if they are truly a
part of the community they live in if it
is to be cohesive.

“J guess what we are looking for,”
said Mr McKinnon, “is the perfect
recipe. What is it within a society that
makes everyone feel wanted, makes
everyone feel that they are a part of it,
makes everyone feel like they can
influence the decisions, makes every-
one truly comfortable in that soci-
ety?”

He hopes that this week’s forum

_with generate some answers, as youth

ministers who gather in the Bahamas
will get a chance to hear directly what
youth representatives from their
respective countries expect from polit-
ical leaders.

Mr McKinnon said he wants the
youth ministers meeting to be inter-’
active, with other players being
involved.

Youth participation in the consul-
tation process, Mr McKinnon contin-
ued, should ensure that ministers get
more than just advice from their own
officials.

“When people are marginalised,”
Mr McKinnon told the press, “they
do get angry. And with some of the
angry youths that we have seen in the
world in the last few years, we have to

‘be concerned.”

Part of the secretary-general’s mis-
sion in creating cohesive societies is to
work with Commonwealth nations in
reducing youth marginalisation.

OWING TO INCLEMENT WEATHER,
THE 29TH COMMENCEMENT

@ By Tribune Staff Writer

BAHAMIAN educational
consultant and disability spe-
cialist Dr Beulah Gardiner-Far-
quharson is in St Kitts to devel-
op training programmes for
teachers that will support the
participation of disadvantaged
students, improve the quality
of teaching and enhance learn-
ing opportunities.

According to The St
Kitts/Nevis Sun, access to qual-
ity education for all children is
one of the goals of the Ministry
of Education of that country
and part of an Education
Development Project funded
by the World Bank.

This project includes a com-



ponent to develop programmes
for students with learning sup-
port needs and recognises the
importance of teachers receiv-
ing appropriate training to
make these programmes suc-
cessful.

Dr Gardiner-Farquharson,
who arrived in the country May

_ 13, is accompanied by Bridget

Cooper, a reading specialist,
also from the Bahamas.

Prior to her visit, Dr Gar-
diner-Farquharson collected
data from the Ministry of Edu-
cation, the Teacher Education
Division of the Clarence Fitzroy
Bryant College, teachers of pri-
mary and secondary schools
and students from learning sup-
port departments in secondary

schools.

She will be holding focused
interviews with Ministry of
Education officials, the Teacher
Education Division of the
Clarence Fitzroy Bryant Col-
lege, and principals and teach-
ers of St Kitts/Nevis.

Visits will also be made to
observe reading intervention
programmes in primary schools
and learning support pro-
grammes in secondary schools.

The team will review present
programmes of training and
make recommendations for
future provisions, while consid-
ering the underlying issues con-
tributing to the under-perfor-
mance of some students in the
education system.

SOUTH AUSTRALIA

Australia is home to some
of the most exciting wines
in the world and boasting
some of the oldest individual
vines in the world. Australia
produces a huge range of
styles and qualities of wine.

South Australia is the wine
industry’s powerhouse
State, producing most of the
nation’s wine, but New
South Wales, Victoria and
Western Australia contribute
as well.

In addition to being host to
some of the world’s oldest
vines, the State also has a
diversity of regions ranging
from the relatively warm

temperate climate of the

Barossa Valley through to
the maritime precincts of the
McLaren Vale, Southern
Fleurieu, Currency Creek
and. Langhorne Creek
regions on the Fleurieu
Peninsula and across the
cooler Adelaide Hills region
to the hotter Riverland
region on the Murray River.

The south-eastern part of the
State includes the Limestone
Coast zone and the “terra
rossa” soils overlying
limestone which give rise to
distinct elegant reds of the
Coonawarra region. The
“Limestone Coast” zone-
which also includes the
Padthaway, Wrattonbully
and Mount Benson regions-
is building its own
reputation for wines that are
not only influenced by the
region’s natural limestone
but the tempering breezes
of the nearby Southern
Ocean.

Shiraz is the most famous
Australian red wines variety;
it was the country’s first
modern international
success and has remained a
distinctive claim to fame.
Like Malbec in Argentina,
this Old World grape
‘(known as Syrah in France)
finds a unique expression in
Australia, becoming deeply
concentrated, with nuances
of mint, black pepper and
eucalyptus in some areas.

Australian Cabernet

Sauvignon, Merlot and -

Grenache also have a
devoted following around
the world, and combinations
of all. of these (labeled
Shiraz/Cabernet, for
example, or
Cabernet/Merlot) are most
popular.

Australian white wines tend

to be full-bodied and ripe in.

style, with rounded flavors
and moderate acidity.
Chardonnay is the most
important varietal, with the
best sporting a ‘honeyed’
finish with aromas of apple,
pear and sometimes
butterscotch. French oak
barrel aging is common but
not universal, and when
used is not as great as is
found among, for example,
California Chardonnays.

Semillon is another favorite

Australian wine variety, .

either standing alone or
blended with Chardonnay
in a unique Australian
combination. In cooler
areas, dry, aromatic Riesling
is also on the rise both in
quantity and reputation.
Colombard and Verdelho
both have traditional
devotees. Among popular
and delicious dessert wines
is the classic Australian
White Wine varietal, Muscat
of Alexandria.

Australia’s emerging
powerhouse offers a full
variety of fruity, accessible
wines in all major styles;
from dry table wines
to. sparkling wines, fortified
styles, and even vintage
port. Worldwide,
winemakers and
connoisseurs alike are
paying serious attention
as Australian wines, once
appreciated mostly for their
low prices, become better
and more diverse in style.

Poverty ‘often to
blame’ for crime
and violence

CRIME and violence are
often caused by adverse cir-
cumstances, according to
Mobafa Baker, the new chair-
person of Pan-Commonwealth
Youth Caucus.

Speaking in New Providence
at the ongoing Commonwealth
Youth Ministers Meeting,
Trinidad native Mr Baker said
the links between poverty, frus-
tration and deviant behaviour
need to be further explored.

“Poverty speaks to crime and
violence, because people
become involved in crime and
violence by way of frustration.

“Some people generally are
deviant and how we deal with
that is one thing, but there are a
lot of other people who take it
as a last resort to try to handle
issues that they are dealing
with,” he said.

The PCYC is the youth wing
of the Commonwealth Youth
Programme (CYP) of the Com-
monwealth Secretariat in Lon-
don.

Mr Baker pointed out that.

crime and violence should be
addressed, particularly in rela-
tion to young people, “because

we are not only perpetrators —"

we are also victims of crime and
violence and how we are
allowed to respond to that we
need to look at.”

The new chairman also has
very specific views about unem-
ployment. He said young per-
sons need help when transi-
tioning from the world of edu-
cation to the job market, espe-
cially if they have to accept jobs
that are not commensurate with
their qualifications.

It is sometimes frustrating —

Once we are informed, we are '

In addition, Mr Baker said

Hodder appointment a slap in the face?

Dex I say it? The
appointment of Jayne

tlodder as president of the Col-
iege of The Bahamas is an
affront to everything the Christie
administration has ever said
about Bahamianisation, nation-
alism and putting Bahamians
tirst.

Mrs Hodder is not the issue
here; she is likely quite capable
and I wish her well in her new
capacity at the institution from
which I earned an associates
degree, served on its council and
led iis student government.

However, she has been
‘appointed by political adminis-
tration that mouthed repeatedly
before the 2002 general election
that it would give Bahamians the
opportunity to shine in their own
country.

They shamelessly accused the
former administration of being
“foreign first” and treating
Bahamians like “second class cit-
izens” in their own country.
Now, they are appointing a for-
eigner to lead the highest insti-
tution of learning in our land;
this after being led for decades
by Bahamians.

The government is admitting
that there is no Bahamian avail-
able or who could be found to
‘lead the College of The
Bahamas, our national educa-

‘tion centre of learning. In fact,
the government has conceded
that even Bahamians with the
highest academic credentials and
a career commitment to the Col-
lege of The Bahamas are not
capable of leading the college.
Instead, the college must be led
oy a foreigner and one who does

not have the academic crédential
that was called for when the
position was advertised.

This is the concession of a
group of politicians who arro-
gantly boasted that “Bahamians
can do anything, if they are giv-
en the opportunity to do so”.
Yes they can do anything, except
lead their own national tertiary

Imagine that - The Bahamas’
top college must be led into uni-

hands. If the college achieves
university. status, the current
administration would boast from
dusk till dawn that doing so is a

great national achievement for

our independent nation. Yet,
this same administration sees
nothing contradictory today
about hiring a non-Bahamian on
a three-year contract to lead the
charge.

Only a government that is
firmly committed to Bahamian-
isation could do such a thing.

Once-common coral
on endangered list

= By: Tribune Staff Writer

TWO of the world’s most
common coral species, which in
the past could be found in abun-
dance in the Bahamas, have
been‘ listed as endangered
species.

On May 9, the Fisheries Ser-
vice-of the National Oceano-
graphic and Atmospheric
Agency (NOAA) registered
elkhorn' (Acropora palmata)
and staghorn corals (Acropora
cervicornis) as threatened, with
official listing effective 30 days
later.

This constitutes the first time
a coral species has been listed as
endangered or threatened

under the US’ Endangered’

Species Act (ESA).

John Rollino, principal inves-
tigator of Earthwatch’s Bahami-
an Reef Survey project and
senior ecologist at Earth Tech
-told ‘the Science, Technology,

Physics, Space News that the”
decline of these two species is ©

likely a symptom of global
warming — which is impacting
coral reefs around the world.

Mr Rollino said that during
the last year, huge portions of
reef,in the eastern Caribbean
have undergone drastic decline
duejto coral mortality from
aboye average water tempera-
tures,

“Some of the individual coral
colonies that perished last year
were,alive over a hundred years
ago;;: he said.

Scientists now believe that
the loss of these coral species
could, be the first sign of an
unravelling coral reef ecosys-
tem: .

For.the last 14 years, teams
fronishe international institute
EartHwatch have collected data
on edral decline in the waters
around San Salvador.

Both elkhorn coral and
staghorn coral were common at
the %start, forming massive
branches -which provided cov-
er fora diversity of reef fish.

ryt

eQl,

However, in recent years
these coral species have become
practically absent from San Sal-
vador’s reefs.

Elkhorn and staghorn are the
most abundant groups of coral
in the world and once the most
important reef-building species
in the Caribbean.

Hi TWO species of coral are under threat



TI sae ene



“The overwhelming majori-
ty of the decline of elkhorn and
staghorn corals on San Salvador
was by disease, most notably

with the 1998 mass bleaching

that the attorney general’s office can do and
we are simply saying that we believe that the
matter should be referred to the Coroner’s
court and at the end of the day the recom-
mendations would come from the jury and
then the magistrate. If the attorney general is
minded to use her powers and proceed in
the matter then we suffer it to be so,” Mr
Sands said.
Officer Charlow was expected to be
arraigned at 11am yesterday. However, when
. 1lam came and went and the officer was not
seen, the crowd on Bank Lane grew anxious.
It was not until several minutes before
noon when Tracy Charlow, wife of the
accused officer, called for some of her fami-
ly members to come to Court One that it
became evident that Charlow was already
inside the courtroom.
















At that point the crowd on Bank Lane
paraded upstairs to Chief Magistrate Roger
Gomez’s court.

When the media got to the courtroom,
however, it was made known that the arraign-
ment had already taken place.

The Tribune later learned from officer
Charlow’s lawyer that, because of the large
crowd on Bank Lane, Charlow was taken
into court through another entrance. Charlow
left the court holding hands with his wife and
surrounded by a group of plainclothes offi-
cers.

According to Anthony Delaney, the pros-
ecutor from the attorney general’s office,
Charlow was not required to plead to the
manslaughter charge and was granted bail
in the sum of $10,000 with two sureties.

A preliminary inquiry has been set for July
28 and the case has been transferred to Court
11, Nassau Street.

cerned and stressed because my
constituents in Williams Town and
Russell Town could be in trouble
should another hurricane hit us,”
Mr Grant said.

“There are many homes throughout
Grand Bahama that remain unpre-
pared. One only need drive through
the various settlements and they can
see there is much work to be done,”
Mr Grant said.

Two weeks ago in the House of
Assembly Mr Grant expressed con-
cern over the fact that there were a
number of contractors who were given
contracts to do repairs on homes in
Grand Bahama and the repairs were
halted abruptly.

“They were told in one instance
that there was a change in the minister
which was nonsense and they were
told that the money ran out. I think
that the money ran out. Jerome God-
frey (local coordinator for NEMA in
Grand Bahama) told persons that he
was waiting on a budget and that does
not make sense,” Mr Grant said.

However, speaking with The Tri-
bune, Mr Godfrey, pointed out that
budgets are required items when it
comes to government spending and
every penny spent not only has to be
accountable to the government, but
to the people.

“If at a point in time a budget is
not in place it will be put into place. I
believe for the most part we have been
positively received but regrettably




Grand Bahama

there will be people who will not be
satisfied, but I believe in the majority
of cases people have received a level of
relief that has made them more com-
fortable,” Mr Godfrey said.

However, the homes NEMA has
not been able to complete for one rea-
son or another has been a cause of
concern for him.

“We are concerned that in very
short order the season will be upon
us and we would want people to be
comfortable and focus only on pre-
paredness other that the things that
would linger from the last hurricane.
So, as I speak, we are making all
efforts to complete all the repair work
that we have at hand.

“Even if we are not finished before
the hurricane season starts we will
make all efforts to be completed
before the midst of the season, but by
June first we may not be finished, but
we are making all efforts to be com-
pleted before then. A number of fac-
tors have caused the slow down, bud-
getary considerations has been among
them,” Mr Godfrey said.

Pleasant Bridgewater, MP for Mar-
co City, has a less pessimistic outlook
on the situation in Grand Bahama
than does Mr Grant. She agreed that
there was still a significant percentage
of homes not ready for the hurricane
season, but for the most part the
majority of people are ready and
putting themselves in readiness.

“We are not quite there yet, but we

THE TRIBUNE.



are working towards it. A number. of
people are trying to repair their homes
after the last three hurricanes but, toa
large extent, the majority of person’s
homes have been in a better condi-
tion than they have been for a very
long time,” she said.

Steady progress, is being made, she.
said, and now that the season is
approaching, persons are starting to
speed it up.

More people, more so than in the
past, Mrs Bridgewater said have their
insurance paid up and have their prop-
erties insured.

However, the MP said she was still
concerned because of the talk of this
year being an active season. The
National Hurricane Centre predicts
an above average tropical season with
13 to 16 named storms, 8 to10 hurri-
canes and 4 to 6 hurricanes of Cate-
gory 3 strength or above. :

This fact also raises concerns about
the public infrastructure and its abili-
ty to meet the demands of an active
season.

“T am concerned about that as:it
affects both residential and commer-
cial property. In the last hurricane we
were out of electricity for about a

‘month. We have spoken and written

to the Grand Bahama Port Authority
to ensure that if this (the maintenance
of public infrastructure) happens I
don’t know if they have the manpow-
er, but that is another thing,” Ms
Bridgewater said. .

Nevertheless, the presence of
NEMA on the island has been com-
forting to her.

Mrs Russell, however, was
not in office on Wednesday. She
was said to be in New Provi-
dence at the time. She has
denied the allegations against
her of victimisation.

While speaking to the media,
Mr Russell said despite previous
assurances given by Prime Min-
ister Perry Christie victimisa-
tion continues to be committed
against persons at the Prime
Minister’s Office.

“The present prime minister

had heralded many times that
he is not a prime minister of
victimisation, yet still we are
here at his office where victim-
isation has taken place,” said
the MP for High Rock.
’ Mr Russell said that the Free
National Movement govern-
ment removed victimisation
from the country during its past
10 years in office.

“Today is a sad day,” he
said. “We are herein front of

ernment that showed and
committed no victimisation,
in protest to let the rest of our
country know and the people
in Grand Bahama know that
we will not tolerate victimisa-



tion any longer,” he said.

Mr Russell believes that the
action of parliamentary secre-
tary Ann Percentie-Russell was
a blatant and calculated attack
on Lady Whitfield, the widow
of FNM founder and former
party leader, the late Sir Cecil

months later they are faced with
that same daunting task.
“They have nowhere to go,”
Shelia Culmer, president of

‘BNCD, said at a press confer-
_ence yesterday. The contract

they entered into with govern-
ment only allowed assistance
for a year. That same contract
now leaves Thompson, Stuart,
Flowers and Storr without a
place to stay as of June 10.
Their apartment in Sandi-
lands Village not only provides
them with a place to lay their
heads at night, but it also pro-
vides them with an environment
in which they are not ashamed

to be who they are and not

embarrassed fo live with their

Stuart, who is diagnosed with
cerebral palsy, said people often:

the other three men and, in fact,
all persons, whether disabled or
not - independence is the ability
to live as one chooses and with-
in that context of choice there
must be allowances made to suit
the person’s individual needs.

“This struggle is not just for

us,” Thompson said, “but all
disabled people in the Bahamas
even those unborn.”

.To prove this claim the men
appealed to the prime minister
in November and again in
March to ask for Crown land
on which to build a home for
the disabled to live indepen-
dently. A blueprint of the facil-

‘ity has already been designed. If

completed it will accommodate
16 disabled adults.
“Independence doesn’t mean
living on our own or in an apart-
ment, home, or hotel — it’s sim-
ply means to be able to achieve
the goals in life,” Thompson
explained. Their greatest desire
is to live independently but sev-
eral things are stopping them
from making that dream a real-

Thompson places most of the.,

at the door of Minister of Social ,

He believes she could have _

done more to preserve their res-

. “She does not care to under-

The Cheshire Home is to be ; a

home for disabled children in :

the near future. Thompson

argued that the children will’. a

become adults some day. “What

then?” he asked. “Will they be ‘ :

He believes that Mrs Grittia:

is “insensitive to the Teal needs

He said. Prime Minister .

Christie, who is ultimately
responsible for the office, has
failed to live up:to his word.

“We have not attempted to
reach ‘the Prime Minister
because he was told on more
than one occasion that his par-
liamentary secretary in Freeport
was victimising people in Grand
Bahama.

“He was asked over and over

to deal’with this problem and

he promised me personally that
this will not happen again, and I
am disappointed because his
word meant absolutely noth-

“We didn’t demonstrate then,

becausé’ we thought he would -

word and we now have to
ensure that he gets the message
from us in Grand Bahama.”

Study: Almost half of those living
in poverty are children under 15_

@ By NEIL HARTNELL
Tribune Business Editor



Imost half of all peo-

ple living in poverty

in the Bahamas are

children aged under

15 years-old, a paper
published at a World Bank confer-
ence has found.

The study on Protecting Disabled
Children in Vulnerable Families in the
Bahamas, presented at a World Bank
conference in December 2005, found
that the “poverty rates for children
are higher” than those for adults, with
“one half of the poor under the age, of
15”.

The findings by the quartet of Lil-
ian Quant-Forbes, Kim Sawyer, Gul-
‘sana Turusbekova and Henda Lucia

Ducados are likely to fuel concern |

_ that a whole generation of Bahamians

is being left behind, with the pur-
ported economic benefits from the
much-touted foreign direct invest-
ment projects failing to reach those
who need it most.

Minimum wage doubling | Abaco Markets seeks

The paper found that 16.6 per cent
of Bahamian children aged between
0-4 years-old were living in poverty,
meaning that about one in every six
children born in this nation are born
into poverty.

Children in this age group account-
ed for 18 per cent of the total number
living in poverty in this nation.

For children aged between 5-14,

‘some 13.9 per cent were living in

poverty, accounting for 31.9 per cent
of Bahamas residents who were clas-
sified as poor.

This means that some 49. 9p per cent
of Bahamas residents living in pover-
ty are children aged 14 years-old and
younger. ‘

In addition, some 9.1 per cent of

Bahamas residents aged between 15-
19 years-old were living in poverty,
according to the study, accounting for
7.5 per cent of all poor persons. -
When this age group is added in,
some 57.4 per cent or just over 16,000

of all Bahamas residents living in‘

would ‘create havoc’

& By CARA BRENNEN
Tribune. Staff.Reporter

ANY decision to. double the
$150 per week minimum wage
would create economic havoc, the
Bahamas Employers Confedera-
tion’s (BeCON) president told
The Tribune yesterday, after such
an increase was suggested by a
trade union leader.

Brian Nutt said any call to
increase the minimum wage from
$150 to $300 per week would not
be practical or responsible for a
number of reasons.

He said that this figure would
then apply across the board to all
workers, including young persons
just starting to work straight from
high school, and those trying to
learn anew: profession as appren-
tices. ‘



and the woman ‘work and hire a
housekeeper to watch their chil-
dren while they are at work. If
they are forced to pay a $300 a
week salary, many of them would
have to have one person quit their
job to stay with the kids, because
that would make more sense,”
Mr Nutt said.

The BECon president added
that in many cases, the minimum
wage did not recognise employee
salaries that were paid in kind,
such as free lodging, or persons
whose salaries were based on oth-
er factors, such as tips or com-
missions.

The Government should not

“In many households, the man

try to legislate wages, Mr Nutt

. Said, because it.was..best left to

the employee and employer

‘based on the worth and value of

the employees’ performance.
Mr. Nutt’s comments came on
the heels of comments published
in The Tribune yesterday, where
union leaders .Patrick Bain and

Obie Ferguson had. predicted a

grave future for Bahamian work-
ers if things did not change.

The unions are expected to
prepare a list of recommenda-
tions on the labour code, address-
ing issues they believe negatively
affect workers in the Bahamas,
and present it to Labour Minister,
Shane Gibson.

Among the recommendations
was the suggestion that the mini-
mum wage be increased by 100
per cent, from $150 to $300 a
week.

Mr Ferguson’s rationale for the
increase was that “the average
worker cannot survive on the
minimum wage. The cost of living

is too high”.

Mr Gibson said yesterday that
it was difficult for him to com-
ment on the possibility of the

Government increasing the min- °

imum wage at this stage, but
added that he would be very
interested to know how Mr Fer-
guson had arrived at the $300 Pel
week figure.

Mr Gibson said that once he.

Tourism generates
63% of employment

TOURISM accounted for
97,383 jobs or 63 per cent of
total employment in the
Bahamas in 2003, a study of
the industry’s impact has
found, with the sector gener-
ating 61 per cent or $1.6 bil-
lion of all wages.

The first Tourism Satellite
Accounting (TSA) of the
Bahamas, the method used by
the United Nations (UN) and
its World Tourism Organisa-
tion (WTO) to measure touris-
m’s economic impact on a
country, found that the sector’s
total economic contribution to
this nation in 2003 was $2.8 bil-
lion or 51 per cent of GDP.

The study was performed by
Global Insight, the same eco-
nomic forecasting consultancy
that estimated the impact Baha
Mar’s $1.6 billion Cable Beach
redevelopment and the con-
troversial $175 million Baker’s
Bay Golf & Ocean Club would
have for the Bahamas.

Global Insight did not out-
line the methodology it used
to arrive at its 2003 tourism
impact findings in the material
released yesterday by the Min-
istry of Tourism:

However, it found that
tourism was responsible for
generating almost $468 million
in tax revenues for the
Bahamian government during
2003, some 48 per cent or
$223.274 million of that coming
in import duties.

The $468 million would have
been 51 per cent of the Gov-
ernment’s $919 million rev-
enues in the 2002-2003 Budget
year, and 48.8 per cent of the
total 2003-2004 intake of $959
million.

Global Insight estimated
that the tourism industry gen-
erated $70.28 million in depar-
ture taxes during 2003, some

City Markets ‘stake’

The findings are likely to make
grim reading for economic and social
policymakers, as they indicate that a
large percentage of the population is
starting out with a disadvantaged

home background during an era when.

the, global economy, has become
increasingly competitive.

The study prepared for the World
Bank conference said that 9.3 per cent
of Bahamas residents, close to one in
10, were classified as being poor. Pre-
vious studies have shown that chil-
dren from backgrounds of poverty,
particularly in societies such as the
Bahamas where there is great income
inequality, with the wealthy living in
close proximity to the very poor, often
have little option but to find work in
informal professions, suey as the. drug
trade.

The study looked at the social assis-
tance and insurance programmes
operated by the Ministry of Social
Services and Community Develop-
ment in 2002-2003.

It found that the Ministry spent $1.8
million on providing food coupons,

«which gave short and long-term assis-
tance with food purchases, to some
2,149 “beneficiaries” during that fiscal
year.

In addition, the Ministry provided
$71,600 in financial assistance to a

_ further 249 families, which helped to

meet water and electricity bills, plus
clothing and household items, mort-
gages, medical care: and school sup-
plies costs.

Among those targeted for this assis-
tance were poor and indigent per-
sons, and low income earners.

The Ministry also spent $662,000
on providing school lunches to the
children of low income and unem-
ployed parents in 3,171 cases. It also
provided $13,700 to 183 students to

help them buy uniforms and footwear..

And some 226 low income house-
holds received $240,300 to subsidise
their rental of public housing in 2002-
2003.

large part of Bahamian society is in

ABACO Markets last night said it was seeking to buy a “minor-
ity interest” in the group purchasing the majority 78 per cent
stake in chief rival Bahamas Supermarkets, and confirmed it was
selling its Solomon’s SuperCentre in Marsh Harbour to Price

Right.

Craig Symonette, Abaco Markets chairman and chief executive,
said his own investment in BSL Holdings was a “passive” one,
implying that he would take no active role in Bahamas Super-
markets affairs and thus prevent any appearance of a conflict of

interest.

In a statement, he said of Abaco Markets’ investment in BSL
Holdings: “The prospect of a minority investment in BSL Holdings
may present new opportunities for our company in the form of syn-

nce an entrepreneur has
analysed the specific needs of
his business, he must decide on
the business space to run his
operation.
After selecting the appropriate location for
the nature and structure of his business, if he will

be renting space, he must then consider the

legal implications of the lease he will sign with
the landlord or owner of the space.

- A lease is simply a. contractual agreement
between the landlord (person renting the busi-
ness space) and the tenant (person/entity to
whom the business space is rented), which out-
lines the duration of the rental of the business

space, rental amount, and terms and conditions
of the tenancy, including any and all restric-
tions, duties, rights, responsibilities and obliga-
tions of both parties.

A lease may be for the short or long-term.
However, there are certain characteristics that
must exist for a lease to be considered a valid
lease. |

The Essential Characteristics of a Valid Lease

1. The tenant must have the right to exclusive
possession of the premises that is the subject
of the lease. If the person granting the lease
remains in general control of the demised
premises, no tenancy is created.

Additionally, if there is no defined premises
for the lease, only a contractual obligation to
provide storage for goods with no defined space,
this arrangement would be considered a mere
licence and not a tenancy, notwithstanding lan-
guage in the tenancy document indicating the
intention to create a lease.

2. A lease cannot be for an uncertain period.

3. A lease must also be created in the proper
way, following the relevant legal formalities,
particularly if it is a lease to create a legal estate
(which should be made by deed for enforce-
ability and assignment).

Types of Commercial Leases

1. A lease may be granted for a fixed period of
certain duration, whether short or long term.

However, both the commencement and duration .

of the lease’s term must either be certain or be
rendered certain before the lease takes effect. A
lease for a fixed period automatically deter-
mines when the fixed period expires on the
lease.

Study op Abaco Markets seeks City Markets ‘stake’

poverty

with one in five from that age
group neither employed nor in
the education system. As a
result, many were in danger of
being left behind, drifting into

The Royal Bahamas Police
Force (RBPF) _ recently
expressed concern that many

ette saying: “We operate in a highly compet
itive market — one which requires us to think
out of the box when it comes to delivering
on our shareholder investment.

“We are steadfast in our comnutment to
Abaco Markets. focusing on our day-to-day
operations and pursuing strategic interests to
support our return to productivity and prof-
itability.’

The last statement is likely to be an attempt
to reassure Abaco Markets investors that Mr
Symonette remains fully committed to thei
company

Several minority shareholders in the retail
group, which is listed on the Bahamas Inter-
national Securities Exchange (BISX), had
previously expressed concerns that the invest-
ment by Mr Symonette and fellow Abaco
Markets director, Franklyn Butler, in BSL
Holdings were akin to abandoning them for a
better-performing company that was a direct
competitor.

The Tribune was also told yesterday that
the sale of Solomon’s SuperCentre in Marsh
Harbour, Abaco, was not being done to raise
cash that would enable Abaco Markets to
fund its investment in BSL Holdings.

Lesley Davies-Baptista, the company’s vice-
president of marketing, said last night: “The
divestment decision was made prior to BSL.
Abaco is a market, in terms of growth poten-
tial, where we deployed a considerable
amount of capital, and the returns we got for



it performed below expectations.

“We’ve made a ‘conscious decision to focus
on markets we can grow in.’

That will reassure minority shareholders
who may have been feeling that the decision to
sell the Solomon’s SuperCentre could have
been more for BSL Holdings and Bahamas
Supermarkets’ benefit, rather than theirs and
Abaco Markets.

One source said yesterday: “What is the
reason tor this sale? What is the strategic
plan?”

“As we continue to focus our efforts on a
return lo profitability and an increase in our
sharcholder value, it is clear that we need to
reposition our company to grow in the mar-
kets that present the greatest opportunity,”
said Mr Symonette.

“Over the years, we have deployed a sig-
nificant level of capital in Abaco with results
that have been well below expectations. This
strategy gives us the opportunity to redeploy
capital for further debt reduction and for
growth opportunities in New Providence and
Grand Bahama - which we consider to be
our core markets.”
The purchase price being paid for the

_ Solomon’s store in Abaco by Price Right,

headed by business partners Chad Sawyer
and Super Value president Rupert Roberts,
was nol disclosed.

It is understood that Price Right had been
planning to construct a new store to replace its
existing one, which was extensively damaged
by the 2004 hurricane season and storm surges.

However, rather than build, the company
decided to approach Abaco Markets to see if
it was interested in selling.

Abaco Markets experienced difficulties with
its Abaco operations late last year, dispatching
its No. 2 executive at its Nassau Solomon’s
SuperCentre to take charge after manage-
ment there lost control of inventory. The Aba-
co operations acted as a drag on the fourth
quarter results.

No mention was made of Abaco Markets’
other Abaco outlets, the Cost Right store and
the Treasure Cay store, the latter of which is
said to be interesting Lowell Albury, one of
Abaco Markets’ first directors.

The Solomon’s store’s disposal will enable
the company to redeploy capital and resources
to achieve a better return.

Mr Symonette said the interest of employ-
ees was key during negotiations:and selling
that operation “to a well grounded competitor

~ and community member with a proven track

record was the best option for our employees
and for the stability of operations there”.

The purchaser has agreed to secure the
employment of most of the Solomon’s Abaco
employees.

Mr Symonette said no disclosure could
come before a US Bankruptcy Court
approved the Bahamas Supermarkets sale to
BSL Holdings, approval for which was
received late last week.

,Abaco Markets confirmed the appropriate
disclosures had been made to both BISX and
the Securities Commission on Monday.

North and South to bid notrump at
any point. :

East wins the heart with the ace.

and returns the ten. He hopes partner
has the K-J, in which case, if dummy
can be forced to ruff a heart, East’s
queen of clubs will become the set-
ting trick.

Declarer covers the ten with the
queen, and West wins with the king.
West does not know at this point that
East has the Q-x of clubs, but he can
easily deduce that the jack-of-hearts
continuation offers the best chance of
defeating the contract.

West arrives at this conclusion
by assuming that South, who bid
clubs three times, must have at least
seven of them. Since declarer has
already produced two hearts, it fol-

‘lows that South’s four unknown

cards, whatever they are, are fully
covered by dummy’s two sets of A-
K’s. ‘

It is therefore clear that no advan-
tage can accrue from retuming a
spade, a diamond or a trump at trick
three. The only real chance is that
East has either the Q-x or J-10 of
clubs, in which case forcing dummy
to ruff a heart will promote a trump
trick for the defense.

If West fails to lead the jack of.

hearts at trick three, declarer makes
the contract, but with that lead, South
must go down one.

STUBBS [Tueres been some

good news and some

bad news in sports this past

week, depending on how
you look at it.

The good news is that

Sherman ‘the Tank’

Williams could get a shot at



news is that Ryan Sweeting
has given up his Bahamian
citizenship.

The timing for the two
announcements couldn’t
have come at a more oppor-
tune time.

Williams is on the verge of
climbing up the ladder in the
heavyweight ranks and a vic-
tory, if the fight is arranged
as planned in Honolulu,
Hawaii in July, it could play
a major part in his future.

Now, many of you might
say that Tyson is a “washed
up, old” fighter, who has had

OPINION

‘Iron’ Mike Tyson. The bad —

.dominated the heavyweight

with his ferocious style back
in the ’90s. J

This will be Tyson’s third
attempt at a comeback and
he would certainly need a
quality fighter like Williams
with a “clean reputation”
and a “decent record” to
spur him on.

Assist

The anticipation is already
building for the showdown

that could work out well for:

both fighters, but it will def-
initely assist Williams with
such a big name on his
resumé.

A victory could help him
boost his chances of secur-
ing a ranking in any of the
four major international
boxing organisations and
eventually get him set up on
the road for a possible world
title shot.

Williams has had a storied
career so far and he’s on the
verge of bigger and better
things. A fight against Tyson
will be more than feather in
his cap. .

While it could turn out to
be a good story to follow,
Bahamians are quite disap-
pointed that rising young
tennis star Ryan Sweeting
has decided to abandon the
Bahamas and will be wear-
ing the American flag in the
future.

Bahamas Lawn Tennis
Association’s. president
Giorgio Baldacci confirmed
that Sweeting had submitted
a letter, indicating that he
will no longer play for the
Bahamas.

His mother, Cindy, said it
was a “tough” decision, but
one that she and her son

_ carefully considered.

debate about whether or not

Bodybuilder -

Stubbs carrying

heavy workload

@ BODYBUILDING
By KELSIE JOHNSON
Junior Sports Reporter

‘SECURING professional status is a dream
for most amateur athletes, but having to bal-
ance that accomplishment with a daily nine-
to-five job can be difficult.

Bahamas’ first professional bodybuilder
Joel Stubbs is currently faced with carrying
out his daily duties for Bahamasair and
adding his weekly work-out sessions to his
schedule.

Stubbs secured his pro-status in 2003 by
winning the top prize at the Central Ameri-
can and Caribbean (CAC) championships,
the next goal on Stubbs’ agenda was to qual-
ify for Mr Olympia.

In his debut show, the Europa Super
Show, Stubbs received special accolades from
fans, judges, journalists and photographers
for his well defined back.

Although he finished up 12th in the com-
petition he was awarded a second opportu-
nity to qualify for the Mr Olympia, but
Stubbs’ lower body wasn’t defined enough
and as a result he didn’t make the cut. |

Stubbs said: “Pretty much I am behind in
my training due to the work load that IJ had.
I was supposed to have competed in a show
earlier this year but I wasn’t in any shape
physically.

“It is very hard, me having a full-time job
and ‘trying to train for competition. But, you
know, balancing the whole thing is not that
big of a problem, I had to do pretty much the
same thing when I was on the amateur status.
' “Training means that I need to put in at
least two and half hours of hard work-outs,
and I can do that. either in the mornings or
afternoons, these hourly training sessions all
depend on my shift at Bahamasair.

. “I’ve learned how to get my training in,
but when you’re working out on a profes-
sional level now the meals are a must. This is
the difficulty when you have to tote around

your six meals a day. You have to get in the

required amount of food, and supplements
on this level, it is not like the amateur level
where you could have probably slack: off one
day and make up the other days.”

Stubbs’ diet plan is an unusual one. Unlike
the ordinary diet plans where the person
tries to eat less, Stubbs must have a daily
intake six times a day, every three hours.
These meals are responsible for keeping the
calorie level high.

Six days out of seven you can find Stubbs in
the gym Planet Fitness working feverishly
on trying to perfect his body.

With the annual Europa Show, set for
Arlington, Texas on August 24th and 25th,
Stubbs is hoping that his double dose of hard
work will pay off.

A particular work-out session for Stubbs is
based on the day of the week. On Monday,
Stubbs works on his shoulders and legs with
Tuesday designated for back and triceps and
Wednesday back and biceps. Thursday’s
work-out is a repeat of Monday’s while on

’ Friday and Saturday he will take on Tuesday ©

and Wednesday’s schedule.

He said: “I am training on a split right now,
where I train every day except Sunday for
two and a half hours.

“The split training means that I have to
split my body working on each body part
twice a week. So on Mondays I will do shoul-
ders and legs and so forth. Sunday is my rest

day since I do have a full time job.
“I haven’t qualified for Mr Olympia. I did ©

one show last year, my first pro-show. I got a
lot of props and accolades from the top body-
builders but I had a downfall my legs. They
did say I need to go back to the drawing
board and balance my legs.”

_ After having his back spread featured in
the Flex Magazine last December, Stubbs
says that he is placing most of his attention
for the upcoming show on developing his
lower body, re-introducing the squats in his
work-out.

ENGLAND won't be
dwelling: on its Ashes thriller at
Edgbaston’ when it meets Sri
Lanka in‘the second test starting
on Thursday.

At the’same ground last year,
England beat ‘Australia by two
runs td'lévelthe series before

Urn i ‘

"Ete as! veantastic ‘bit: to be
honest.with.) you, that was a year
ago," England captain Andrew
Flintoff said Wednesday.
"We" ré not here to dwell on
what ‘Happened i in the Ashes last
year, we've got ‘a test match

tomorrow:

"Wa-sawakast week:.at Lord's
that Sri Lanka: are.a ‘talented,

tomorrew, we can't be thinking
about former, glories."

England has-won just one test
in its’ la eight and knows its'
fielding’ will‘come under scruti-
ny in‘its‘next ‘appearance.

The old: adage "catches win
matches" was particularly apt
when theéhoime team put'down
niné chances:in. the.drawn first
test at Lord’ Ss. earlier this month.
The dropped. catches proved
costly when Sri “Lanka ‘batted
for more. ‘than 14° hours ‘in its
second i innings to'draw a match
England should ‘have won:

After England's first innings
of 551-6, the tourists made just
192 and’ were forced .to follow
on, scoring:537-9 and hailed for
a great escape.

"Obviously, we'd like to go
one further and win the games,





Flintoff, said. "I don't think .

we're ‘that far away. 1 think we

‘lintoff: En



did play some good cricket ...
and a couple of mistakes cost us
winning the game so we're not
that far away and-hopefully it
can come together this week."
Flintoff, who is again stand-
ing in for injured captain
Michael Vaughan, admits he is
learning "all the time." But he
dismissed suggestions he's being
pulled in too many directions
with off-field commitments.

"T'm.a cricketer, I enjoy play-.

ing cricket," Flintoff said. "After
my family, it's probably the
most important thing in my life,
so-I'm not going to lose direc-
tion ... I'm not going to take my
eye off the ball.

"Things off the field come
around by performing on it. If
that stops, there's going to be
nothing there." ~

Policy

Veteran Sri Lanka batsman
Sanath Jayasuriya, who was
called out of retirement and
flown ‘to England during the
first test, will not play in the sec-
ond as the team maintains its
youth policy.

Jayasuriya retired from test
cricket in April to make way for
younger players after amassing
6,613 runs in 102 matches.

"We told the young guys that
we will give them the necessary
opportunities," Sri Lanka cap-
tain Mahela Jayawardene said.
"It's a big decision, but we'll
have to give them the opportu-
nities that they deserve.

"If we realize that is not the
path then we can make a
change, but without giving them
that opportunity, it's not fair."

Jayawardene said Jayasuriya
had accepted the decision and
didn't rule him out of playing

in the third test starting at Trent
Bridge, Nottingham, on June 2.

Paceman Lasith Malinga, who
was overlooked for the Lord's
match, is a possible starter in
Birmingham after being includ-
ed in the tourists’ 12-man squad
for the second test.

The 22-year-old Malinga,

known for his unusual bowling |

action, snared a five-wicket haul
in a tour match against Sussex
last week.

England fast bowler Sajid
Mahmood, who claimed three
wickets in nine balls on debut
in the first test looks set to fea-
ture again at Edgbaston, with

‘first-pick pacemen Steve Harmi-

son (shin) and Simon Jones
(knee) still injured.

Jon Lewis could be 12th man
unless the selectors opt for an
all-pace attack, which would
mean leaving out crowd favorite
Monty Panesar. The left-arm

Brown, Amertil among
favourites for jacxpot

@ TRACK AND FIELD
By RENALDO DORSETT
Sports Reporter

FOR the third year in a row,
Bahamian athletes have
appeared on a short list of
favourites for the International
Association of Athletics Feder-
ations Golden League Jackpot.

Quartermilers Chris Brown
and Christine Amertil have
emerged as two of the

favourites to capture shares of




@



Someone is g going to walk ¢

the sports' coveted $1 million
dollar jackpot.

In the most recent IAAF
rankings released on Monday,
Brown was.ranked second in
the 400m, just behind World
and Olympic champion Jeremy
Wariner of the United States,
while Amertil is ranked fourth
behind American Sanya
Richards, Tonique Williams-
Darling, and Ana Guevara of
Mexico.

Wariner has dominated the *



MIAMI HERALD SPORTS

event since winning the
Olympic title in Athens less
than two years ago.

Brown set a new Bahamian
indoor record in the 400m, post-
ing a time of 45.78s at the IAAF
World Indoor Championships
in Moscow, Russia earlier this
year.

This year's 400m field is
extremely potent with three ath-
letes already posting sub 45s
times.

Ranked just behind Brown in






































































third is Great Britain's Tim
Benjamin.

Benjamin is the last person
to have beaten Wariner in the
event.

Americans Lashawn Merritt
(13), the 2004 World Junior
champion, Wariner's training
partner and collegiate team-
mate Darold Williamson (11),
Gary Kikaya (6) of the Democ-
ratic Republic of Congo and
Canadian Tyler Christopher (5),
who had a breakout season last
year finishing just ahead of
Brown for a bronze medal at
the World Championships, will
all look to contend for the title,
making the mens 400m one of
the more anticipated Golden
League events of the season.

Amertil also has had an
excellent season thus far, post-
ing a time of 50.34s in a third
place finish at the World Indoor
Championships.

Like Brown, she too will face
a deep and star-studded field.

Russia's Svetlana Pospelova, |
European indoor champion and
ranked 7th in the world, Amer-
ican Monique Henderson (6)
and Amy Mbacke Thiam of
Senegal (8) are also top con-
tenders in field. The latter post-
ing the second and third fastest
times on the season of 50.83s
and 50.86s respectively.

Two years ago, Chandra Stur-
rup fell just short of capturing a
share of the million dollar prize,
and last year Tonique Williams-
Darling captivated the country



with her quest for the series of
wins, claiming a significant slice
of the jackpot.

Other 2006 IAAF Golden
League events include the
Men's 100m, 1500m,
3000/5000m, Long Jump and
Javelin.

sporting tourism programme

- i By KELSIE JOHNSON

‘and MARK HUMES

USING the Bahamas’ most attractive assets —

‘sun, sand and sea — to lure some of world’s top ath-
letes, Minister of Youth, Sports and Housing Neville .

Wisdom yesterday announced the newest members
to the sporting tourism programme.

Welcoming Michael Chong, Minister of Inter-
governmental Affairs and Sports for Canada, Wis-
dom took the opportunity to renew, what he hailed
as “a very fruitful and wonderful cooperation with
Canada.”

Wisdom invited Minister Chong to have his coun-
try’s athletes join the Americans in taking advantage
of the attractive training opportunities that the
Bahamas provides, particularly during the difficult
and cold Canadian winters.

He said: “You are aware that you come from a
very cold country, and we have a very warm country.
Part of our sporting tourism policy is to invite coun-
tries like yours, coming from cold climates, to avail
themselves with the opportunity to use our facilities
and to become acquainted with the Bahamas.”

The sporting tourism programme is flourishing
in perfect timing as the Bahamas gets set to build a
state-of-the-art track and field stadium. Along with
the mutli-million dollar stadium the Bahamas will
give world class athletes an opportunity to play in the
newly constructed gymnasium.

The reconstruction of the existing Queen Eliza-

ment’s points in their plan to increase sports involve-
ment and sell the Bahamas.

Wisdom also took the opportunity yesterday to.
highlight the government’s move to upgrade and
construct new sporting facilities in Andros,.

-Eleuthera, and Grand Bahama.

Wisdom added: “It is my intention along with the:
government to take the sporting tourism program
worldwide. One of the initiatives that has. already
been discussed between the two ministers is the
possible establishment of a Commonwealth’ youth,
games, either done by way of an overall games con-
cept or by the way of individual sports. lam looking:
forward to Canada’s support as this ventiite is:
explored further.” :

In conclusion he expressed his gratitude ‘t the:
Canadian sports minister for his commitment:to’a *
renewed acquaintance with the Bahamas in Parties: %
ular, with this new sporting venture.

Before closing out the impromptu press cOnter: ‘
ence, Wisdom told Chong to “send as many Cana?
dians as he can during the winter months to utilise
the facilities we have.”

He added: “Help us to fill our hotels, to get-out:
taxi drivers busy or busier than they are, and.alkof::
the residual benefits that one gets from sports
tourism.”

Some of Canada’s top athletes in track and field:
include Tyler Christopher, Jason Tunks, Peleien

Bannister claims
Maynard-Gibson made
comments possibly
‘prejudicial’ to
policeman’s case

@ By NATARIO McKENZIE ©

“THE LAWYER represent-

ing the police officer accused
of the March 27 shooting
death of Deron Bethel claims
that. Attorney General
Allyson Maynard-Gibson has
made comments that could be
“prejudicial” to his client’s
case.

Lawyer Desmond Bannis-
ter, who is representing Cor-
poral Nathaniel Charlow, 33,
yesterday also accused the
Attorney General, who is MP
for the Pinewood Gardens
constituency, of bringing the
concerns of her constituents
into her role as attorney gen-
eral. Officer; Charlow was
arraigned on the charge of
manslaughter yesterday.

Noting that he could not
comment on any evidence in
‘officer Charlow’s manslaugh-
ter case, Mr Bannister said:
“In our system of justice it is
wrong for an attorney general
to make statements in public
which can be interpreted as
being prejudicial to someone’s

case who the attorney general

has to consider at some stage.

“It is wrong because it
leaves an impression that jus-
tice is not going to be served.
The attorney'general is an
independent officer and there
ought not.to be constituent
concerns coming into matters

that the attorney general has
to deal with. I believe that this
is|a sad day for the adminis-
tration of justice in our coun-
try. It sends the wrong mes-
sage to police officers whose
lives are on the line every
day,” Mr Bannister said fol-
lowing his client’s arraignment
yesterday.

Mr Bannister said he was
certain that he would be able
to mount a vigorous defence
for his client.

Dozens of plainclothes
police officers returned to

Bank Lane yesterday in

another show of support for
their colleague.

Inspector Bradley Sands,
executive chairman of the
Police Staff Association, made
it clear yesterday that the offi-
cers were not in protest
against any actions by the
attorney general.

“J want to make it quite
clear that the officers of the
force are here to lend support
to their colleague and are not

- protesting any actions of the

attorney general. We are here
to.lend moral support for our
colleague. We do not want
anyone to misinterpret our
support as a demonstration
against the laws of the
Bahamas. .

MP claims Grand Bahama
in precarious position
ahead of hurricane season

@ By RUPERT MISSICK Jr
Chief Reporter

INEFFICIENT and ineffective
management of NEMA funds by
government has put Grand
Bahama in a precarious position
heading into the next hurricane
season, according to MP for
Lucaya Neko Grant.

With the start of the 2006 hur-_

ricane season only days away, Mr
Grant pointed out that the oppo-
sition has yet to receive reports
on NEMA’s expenditure from
2004.

Mr Grant said he was distressed
at the conditions of the south side
of Grand Bahama, particularly in

that the Ministry of Works had

something, nothing has been

Kenneth Russell and party sup-

an end to political victimisation

Mr Russell led a group of

Disabled group hits out
at minister over eviction

@ By KRYSTEL ROLLE

A GROUP of disabled per-
sons has criticised Minister of
Social Services Melanie Grif-
fin for her “insensitivity”
their plight — after they learned
they would be evicted from
their second home in as many
years.

One cannot see, one cannot
hear and two cannot walk but
they all have wants, needs and
dreams. And one of their
dreams is to find a home where
they can rest their heads per-
manently.

Almost one year ago, on
June 1, 2005, Jerome Thomp-
son, Jervaisian Stuart, Sean

Flowers and Kenneth Storr
were evicted from the Cheshire.
Home on Dolphin Drive,— the
only home in the Bahamas
built specifically to suit the
needs of persons with disabili-
ties.

Next week they will be evict-
ed yet again from the apart- |
ment the government, partic-
ularly the department of social
services and community devel-
opment, set up for them.

Since their problems began
last year, the Bahamas Nation-
al Council for Disability
(BNCD) has assisted these four
disabled men to find some-

Public asked for feedback on proposed

Family and Child Protection Act

@ By DENISE MAYCOCK
Tribune Freeport Reporter

FREEPORT - The government
is asking for feedback from the
public on the newly-proposed
Family and Child Protection Act,
2006.

If passed, the law would give
single fathers the right to seek cus-
tody of their children.

Department of Social Services
assistant directors Lillian Quant-
Forbes and Paula Marshall
announced that the consultation
will begin in Grand Bahama.

Town meetings have been
planned for Freeport and Eight
Mile Rock to discuss the Act and
to get input from residents before
it becomes law.

Ms Forbes said that the Min-
istry of Social Services and Com-
munity Development has under-
taken to look at various Acts that
affect her department or ‘the
Department of Rehabilitative Ser-
vices.

If the law is passed, it will result
in the repeal of The Children and
Young Persons Act, Chapter 97,
The Maintenance of Emigrants
Act, Chapter 128; The Guardian-
ship and Custody of Infants Act,
Chapter 132;The Affiliation Pro-
ceedings Act, Chapter 133; and
The Infants Relief Act, Chapter
134.

It will also result in some
changes to several sections of the
Penal Code, including Chapter 84,
Sections 4, 15, and 91; and The
Adoption of Children’s Act, Chap-
ter 131, Section 17.

Ms Forbes said Minister
Melanie Griffin and a team from

‘New Providence will attend the

town meeting at Mary Star of the
Sea auditorium at 7pm:on May
31, and the meeting at the
Bartlette Hill Primary School audi-
torium on June 5. ;
“We want the public to be
aware that this proposed Act seeks
to address the issue of the rights of
single fathers seeking custody of
their children in any court; we
need the public to come out and
voice their concerns about what
they would like to see changed or
put in the Act,” she said
Mrs Marshall said that for more

than five years, the department’

has been trying to sensitise the
public to the importance of this
matter. :
“We had a number of seminars
and fathers were able to express
their deep concern about the fact

}

that the law did not speak to their

"rights as fathers and other persons

in the child’s life,” she said. ,
Ms Marshall said the new Act
also addresses maintenance rights

BFCE calls proposed
act ‘a step backward’

l@ By KRYSTEL ROLLE ii



BAHAMIAN Fathers for Children Everywhere is calling the pro-
posed Family and Child Protection Act, 2006 a step backward.

According to BFCE president Clever Duncombe, the group has
several problems with the Act’and plans to take a stand for children
across the Bahamas.

He said the Department of Social Services appointed a committee to
prepare a Bill for the Act —to protect children from “all forms of dis-
crimination and to ensure that the child will never be separated from
either parent, which is appropriate to his or her evolving capacities.”

“When we look at what is suggested in Section 6 (1), Parental
Responsibility, we believe fundamentally that this is an attempt to
ignore, disrespect, the coalition for education report, im respect to
single parenting and most importantly our international obligations, said
Mr Duncombe in a statement.

According to Duncombe, the suggested recommendations section 6
(1) reads: “Parents have joint primary responsibility for raising the child
but in the case ‘of a child born out of wedlock the father does not
have parental responsibility unless he satisfies the criteria set out in sec-
tion 14 (2). ; a

“This lowers the standards,” according to Mr Duncombe.

BFCE alleged that the proposed recommendations violate five arti-
cles that are critical for social and national development. | :

In 1991, Mr Duncombe said, the ‘Bahamas ratified the United
Nations Treaty to eliminate all forms of discrimination — particularly
against children. nays So FP a

He claimed the proposed Bill is inconsistent with treaty obliga-
tions.

After reviewing the recommendations, Duncombe’s organisation
came up with their own suggestion for Section 6 (1), which they said is
in accordance with the UN’s stipulations:

“Parents should. have joint primary responsibility for raising the

” child and the state shall support them in this. The state shall provide
‘appropriate assistance to parents in child raising.”

The BFCE is a non-profit organisation that has been advocating for
father’s rights for the last three and a half years.

Bi FORMER United States

FORMER US Ambassador
to the Bahamas Richard J
Blankenship appeared as a sur-
prise witness in the Federal
Court trial of Grammy award-
winning gospel musician Phil
Driscoll.

Driscoll, Mr Blankenship’s

' brother-in-law, was indicted

with his wife Lynne on charges
of conspiracy from 1995
through 2002 and evading fed-
eral income taxes owed for
1996 through 1999.

Government prosecutors
have accused the couple of fun-
neling personal money through
their music ministry-in a tax-
cheating scheme.

Mrs Chris Blankenship,
mother of Lynne Driscoll and
Richard Blankenship, was also
charged, but she died just
before the trial started, it was

- reported in the US newspaper
~ The Chattanoogan.

Closing its case against
Driscoll and his wife, prosecu-

IMMIGRATION Minister
Shane Gibson has denied that
any complaints or requests
were made to him in connec-
tion with his controversial raid
on Eleuthera — in which a num-
ber of legal persons were
allegedly detained and trans-
ported to Nassau.

‘Abner Pinder, the chief

councillor for Spanish Wells;
Fred Smith, president of Grand
Bahama Human Rights Asso-
ciation (GBHRA) and FNM
leader Hubert Ingraham all
criticised the seizure of per-
sons who were not illegal
immigrants.

“We haven’t received any
requests from anybody about
any problems — the only person
who complained about it was
Hubert Ingraham; we have not
received one complaint from

' anybody who was affected,”
said Mr Gibson.

The minister added that he
was not aware that any legal
Haitians who were brought to
New Providence were returned
to Eleuthera aboard a vessel
belonging to Bahamas Fast
Ferries.

“T am not aware of what
happened. Nobody made any
representation to me or the
department on this. I can’t say
for sure that what you’re say-
ing is the truth,” Mr Gibson
said when claims to this effect
were put to him.

Abner Pinder claimed he
footed the $9,000 bill for the
ferry which returned the immi-
grants, and made a public
request for Mr Gibson to apol-
ogise for the wrongful deten-
tion of some immigrants.

Mr Pinder also made a
request to the commissioner of

police for reimbursement of
the $9000 — but according to
sources the transaction has not
taken place.

Mr Pinder was off the island
yesterday and could not be
reached for comment.

“Anybody who we would
have picked have a right to ask
us whatever they want to ask
us, so what I’m saying is I
haven’t been asked anything
from anybody who has been
picked up, or from any organ-
isation purporting to be repre-
senting anybody,” Mr Gibson
said.

Criticism

The GBHRA also criticised
government for what it termed
“inhumane and degrading
treatment” of Haitian immi-
grants during the raid.

Government announces plan
to buy extra cemetery space

@ By MARK HUMES

MINISTER of Works
Bradley Roberts yesterday
announced that government
has agreed to purchase addi-
tional property at the West-
ern Cemetery in an effort to
alleviate a shortage of bur-
ial space in New Providence.

Hoping to generate an
additional 1,000 cemetery
plots, Mr Roberts said that
several months ago, govern-
ment made a decision to
acquire the land from the top
of Delancy Street down to
Augusta Street, where it
intersects with the Western
Cemetery.

Additionally, he said that
actions are being undertaken
to expand on the Southern
Graveyard property. »

After reviewing recom-

mendations to enhance the .°

state of government-owned

cemeteries on the island, the ~

minister took an opportunity
yesterday to tour graveyards
to see how they space be
used more efficiently.
Noting the historical sig-
nificance of the architecture
of many mausoleums, Mr
Roberts said; “we will be
consulting persons familiar

i with antiques on how to bet-

ter use the monuments in the
Western Cemetery.”
“Additionally,” he contin-

. uéd, “we willbe bringing in

an expert to advise us on
how. to best preserve some
of the headstones in the both
the, Western and Eastern
cemeteries that will be of his-
torical value to visitors and
other person that are inter-
ested in antiques.”

It was only last week that
Mz Roberts called on family
members with loved ones
buried in government ceme-
teries to assist his ministry in

, the upkeep of the grave sites,

saying, “the government is
responsible to keep the
grounds in reasonable shape.
But if a grave needs some
attending to, it is the fami-
ly’s responsibility to do so.’
He said that his ministry’s
effort to upgrade and

enhance its burial facilities has
been in the making for some
time now, and that he looks for-
ward to the public doing its part

The night the Queen was kept waiting

IN APRIL'S edition of the Commonwealth
Press Union’s quarterly magazine Patsy
Robertson, a former Director of Information
and Public Affairs at the Commonwealth Sec-
retariat, and a member of the CPU executive,
has written a tribute to Queen Elizabeth II on
her eightieth birthday.

Entitled, “Behind the composure, a Queen

of smiles...” she recalls public incidents in the |

Queen’s life to illustrate a pledge she made
fifty years ago “to dedicate herself to the ser-
Nice of the people of the Commonwealth.”

One of the many stories that Ms Robertson
vividly recalls is “the saga of the boat in the
Bahamas in 1987.”

The incident to which she referred hap-
pened during the Queen’s eight-day visit to the
Bahamas in October, 1985 for the meeting of
the Commonwealth Heads of Government
Conference (CHOGM). Although Miss
Robertson attended the event, her 1987 date
is incorrect.

This is what she wrote:

“For some réason there was a security alert
in Nassau, and the Royal Yacht Britannia on
which the Royal party was staying, was heav-
ily guarded at its berth in the harbour.

“On the night of the dinner for leaders,

some heads were advised not to drive by car

through the town to reach the Britannia, and
a group of about seven leaders — including
Prime Minister Rajiv Gandhi of India, Presi-
_dent Kenneth Kaunda and Mrs Kaunda of
Zambia, as well as the Ramphals (Sir Shri-
dath (Sonny) and Lady Ramphal) — elected
to go by yacht to the Britannia. Unfortunate-
ly, the message did not get through to the
security services guarding the Britannia. So,
when the yacht approached, it was ordered
~ to sail out to sea or it would be blown out of
the water.
\“Meanwhile, on the Britannia, the lateness
then the abserice of an important group of
-guests was noticed. The Queen came on deck
to look for them. TV cameramen waiting on
the dockside focused on an anxious Queen
scanning the dark sea and tapping her fingers,

-|. on the rail, a picture that went round the

world. Eventually, connections were made
and the yacht was'allowed to come into port.
As they filed past the gang plank, Lois Ram-
phal quipped to the Queen: ‘We are the boat
people Ma’am.’ ,

“There were many other occasions when
the Queen’s delight in the unexpected pene-
trated her composure.”

The “security alert” to which Ms Robertson
refers was not a security alert as we understand

_ it today against a backdrop of terrorism. The

alert to which she rcfers was a “se@urity alert”
to protect the late prime minister Sir Lynden
Pindling from the embarrassment of his for-
eign guests seeing placards being waved by
angry Bahamians after the release of the Com-
mission of Inquiry report into drug smuggling.

. Her visit came at a time of political unrest
and great dissatisfaction among Bahamians
with the Pindling government. Deputy prime
minister Arthur Hanna, now governor gen-
eral, had resigned from the Pindling cabinet in
the wake of the Commission hearings. He said
at the time that his conscience would not per-
mit him to continue: Sir Lynden had also fired
Perry Christie, now prime minister, and
Hubert Ingraham, now opposition leader,
from his cabinet before they could follow Mr
Hanna’s lead and carry out their own resig-
nation plans.

Demonstrations were organised by the
FNM along the routes taken by the delegates
to let them know that although the Queen
was. most welcome, they wanted her to
“denounce corruption.”

About 500 Opposition supporters cheered
the Queen, and the governor-general, as her
motorcade left the airport, but lustily booed
Sir Lynden and his-cabinet. She was greeted
with signs that read: “Welcome, but please
denounce corruption”; “The chief is a thief”;
and “How L O can you go.”

And so it was to avoid these demonstrators
that delegates’ chauffeurs were instructed on
the night of the Queen’s grand banquet on
HMS Britannia to avoid the Marlborough
Street route, and Prime Minister Pindling
decided that, despite the stormy night, it would
be less embarrassing to approach the royal
yacht by sea.

It was reported that the group started out in
an open boat. It was raining and the seas were
rough. The women started to feel ill. The par-
ty was transferred to a larger boat. According
to reports Lady Ramphal almost fell over-

board.

Mr Michael Shea, sécretary to the Queen.
apologised to the waiting press. He said he
had been told that there had been a bomb
scare on the Pindling yacht.

This was probably the most dramatic excuse
they could concoct to justify being an hour
late for a dinner date with the Queen.

Needless to say it made international news,
and even today it is remembered because it is
unheard of to keep the Queen waiting — but
that is what Sir Lynden Pindling did. And he
did so, not because he was ducking a bomb,
but because he was ducking the ire of Her
Majesty’s Loyal Opposition.

inquiry

FREEPORT - Two Ameri-
cans were detained at the

alleged discovery of nearly eight

pounds of cocaine.

According to police reports, a
33-year-old man and 22-year-

forced landing in Exuma

@ By KARIN HERIG
Tribune Staff Reporter

A PRIVATE jet carrying a
patient in need of medical
attention crash-landed in Exu-
ma early yesterday morning.

Although the aircraft sus-
tained substantial damage
when it crashed on the side of
the runway at Exuma’s Inter-
national Airport, there were
no fatalities and no injuries.

The Westwind jet, carrying
five passengers and three crew

experienced technical difficul-
ties shortly after lam.
Speaking with The Tribune
yesterday, Superintendent
Willard Cunningham, officer in
charge of Exuma and Ragged
Island, said that the jet was fly-
ing over Exuma when it expe-
rienced “electrical problems”.
“They attempted a night
landing here, unfortunately
their landing gear was also
compromised — which led to
the accident,” he said.
Although the airport was

“Tt all went very quick, and
the air traffic controller in Exu-
ma really didn’t have a chance
to respond, but these aircraft
have their own instruments, so
the landing shouldn’t have
been a problem if the landing
gear had functioned properly,”
he said.

Deputy director of Civil
Aviation Ivan Cleare told The
Tribune that the runway at
Exuma’s International Air-
port has the required lighting
to enable landings at night

no fatalities and no one sus-
tained any injuries in the
mishap,” Mr Cunningham said.

As the jet was reportedly
“totalled” as result of the crash
landing, the passengers had to
be flown on to the US in a dif-
ferent airplane.

“A second plane was sent
for. All eight passengers,
including the patient, were able
to travel on to Virginia (yes-
terday) morning, only a few
hours after the crash,” Mr Cun-
ningham said.

EXUMA’S building boom
has raised questions about the
future of the labour and hous-
ing markets — and may be con-
tributing to social tensions on
the quiet island.

Developments such as the
prestigious Emerald Bay resort
by Four Seasons have created
a surplus of jobs for Bahami-
ans, especially Exumians. ,

However some say this may
be too much of a good thing.

“T don’t think a lot of prepa-
ration was put into the eco-
nomic boom that has taken
place on Exuma,” said Antho-

E ny Musgrove, parliamentary

hopeful for the Exumas.
He explained that before
Emerald Bay was completed,

: the government began a com-

prehensive upgrade of infra-
structure on the island to
assuage doubts that the resort
would ever become a reality.

Mr Musgrove said that these
new facilities and amenities
made the island attractive to
other! Bahamians, and as a

? result, “there was a mass influx

of workers.”

In response to the sharp pop-
ulation growth, a new subdivi-
sion is being developed near
Moss Town, according to
Anthony Moss, MP for Exuma.

There are currently only 17

occupied houses in the new
Redlands Subdivision, but
another 20 homes are expected '
to go up within months.

With workers coming in to
reap the benefits of the eco-
nomic gold rush, “there is
expected to be some anti-social
behaviour,” said Mr Musgrove.

“I think the reason is that
there were Exumians who kept
the island going when nothing
was happening, now they feel
like second class citizens.”

There are also rumours on
the island that with the
upsurge of economic activity
has come a rise in petty crime.

both agreed with this , but
Police Superintendent Williard
Cunningham did not. “Dispel
that myth immediately,” he told
The Tribune. “Crime is down.”

Though there is disagreement
about the crime rate, it remains
true that the population of Exu-
ma has increased almost 50 per

_cent since the boom. And the

government has responded to
the boom by expanding police
presence in the Exumas.
“With the good comes the
bad,” said Mr Moss. “Years ago
we had less than 20 police offi-
cers on the island, today we
have a total of 40 and over 25
police reservists.” :

eral manager of special projects
in Ministry of Tourism. “The
Tourism Satellite Account devel-
opment committee was estab-
lished after it was decided that
the TSA was the best approach.”

According to the completed
Bahamas TSA, tourism directly
accounted for 21 per cent or
$1.17 billion of the $5.5 billion
GDP in 2003?

Even at its most narrow defi-
nition, tourism accounted for a
much larger portion of the
Bahamas’ economy than any
other economic sector.

“No other sector comes
close,” said Adam Sacks, the
consultant heading the study.

The nearest sector to tourism
was public administration and
defence, which accounted for
only 13.6 per cent of the econo-
my.

Real estate and bus services
accounted tor 13.5 per cent and
banking and insurance brought
in 11.7 per cent, while whole-
sale and retail trade brought
12.2 per cent, industry (mining,
manufacturing, electricity and
water) 8.8 per cent, and con-
struction 7.2 per cent.

Mr Sacks pointed out, how-
ever, that the full economic
impact of tourism activity is sub-
stantially greater than just the
direct earnings from tourism.

The indirect contributions to
the economy include the supply
chains of organisations that are
directly involved with the indus-
iry. The wages of direct tourism

“Hotel employees are spend-

together brings us to 51 per cent

tourism.”

That 51 per cent of GDP was
tallied at $2.8 billion in 2003. .

The total impact of tourism on
the economy in terms of wages
was 61 per cent, or $1.6 billion.

































‘In terms of employment,
tourism is the catalyst for

compiling the report was
laborious but rewarding.

“We appreciated the way in
which all the organisations, par-

worked so well together,” Ms
Dorsett said. “The whole coun-

we can have that continued co-

his concern on youth poverty

@ By Mark Humes

Finding the recipe for a cohesive
and tolerant society that does not pro-
duce angry youths continues to be the
mission of the Commonwealth Sec-
retariat said Secretary-general Donal
McKinnon.

Mr McKinnon is in New Providence
to address the Commonwealth Youth
Ministers Meeting (CYMM).

He told members of the press yes-
terday that high rates of youth unem-
ployment tend to generate more crim-
inal activity among that particular
group.

“There is a tremendous amount of
poverty, and we really have to do what
we can fo give young, people more
opportunity,” said Mr McKinnon.

Marginalised and without opportu-
nities, he warned, these angry young

programme in St Kitts:

people “can do a lot of damage.”

The secretary-general said that
youths, like all groups in society, must
be made to feel as if they are truly a
part of the community they live in if it
is to be cohesive.

“J guess what we are looking for,”
said Mr McKinnon, “is the perfect
recipe. What is it within a society that
makes everyone feel wanted, makes
everyone feel that they are a part of it,
makes everyone feel like they can
influence the decisions, makes every-
one truly comfortable in that soci-
ety?”

He hopes that this week’s forum

_with generate some answers, as youth

ministers who gather in the Bahamas
will get a chance to hear directly what
youth representatives from their
respective countries expect from polit-
ical leaders.

Mr McKinnon said he wants the
youth ministers meeting to be inter-’
active, with other players being
involved.

Youth participation in the consul-
tation process, Mr McKinnon contin-
ued, should ensure that ministers get
more than just advice from their own
officials.

“When people are marginalised,”
Mr McKinnon told the press, “they
do get angry. And with some of the
angry youths that we have seen in the
world in the last few years, we have to

‘be concerned.”

Part of the secretary-general’s mis-
sion in creating cohesive societies is to
work with Commonwealth nations in
reducing youth marginalisation.

consultant and disability spe-
cialist Dr Beulah Gardiner-Far-
quharson is in St Kitts to devel-
op training programmes for
teachers that will support the
participation of disadvantaged
students, improve the quality
of teaching and enhance learn-
ing opportunities.

According to The St
Kitts/Nevis Sun, access to qual-
ity education for all children is
one of the goals of the Ministry
of Education of that country
and part of an Education
Development Project funded
by the World Bank.

This project includes a com-



ponent to develop programmes
for students with learning sup-
port needs and recognises the
importance of teachers receiv-
ing appropriate training to
make these programmes suc-
cessful.

Dr Gardiner-Farquharson,
who arrived in the country May

_ 13, is accompanied by Bridget

Cooper, a reading specialist,
also from the Bahamas.

Prior to her visit, Dr Gar-
diner-Farquharson collected

observe reading intervention
programmes in primary schools
and learning support pro-
grammes in secondary schools.

SOUTH AUSTRALIA

Australia is home to some
of the most exciting wines
in the world and boasting
some of the oldest individual
vines in the world. Australia
produces a huge range of
styles and qualities of wine.

South Australia is the wine
industry’s powerhouse
State, producing most of the
nation’s wine, but New
South Wales, Victoria and
Western Australia contribute
as well.

In addition to being host to
some of the world’s oldest
vines, the State also has a
diversity of regions ranging
from the relatively warm

temperate climate of the

Barossa Valley through to
the maritime precincts of the
McLaren Vale, Southern
Fleurieu, Currency Creek
and. Langhorne Creek
regions on the Fleurieu
Peninsula and across the
cooler Adelaide Hills region
to the hotter Riverland
region on the Murray River.

The south-eastern part of the
State includes the Limestone
Coast zone and the “terra
rossa” soils overlying
limestone which give rise to
distinct elegant reds of the
Coonawarra region. The
“Limestone Coast” zone-
which also includes the
Padthaway, Wrattonbully
and Mount Benson regions-
is building its own
reputation for wines that are
not only influenced by the
region’s natural limestone
but the tempering breezes
of the nearby Southern
Ocean.

Shiraz is the most famous
Australian red wines variety;
it was the country’s first
modern international
success and has remained a
distinctive claim to fame.
Like Malbec in Argentina,
this Old World grape
‘(known as Syrah in France)
finds a unique expression in
Australia, becoming deeply
concentrated, with nuances
of mint, black pepper and
eucalyptus in some areas.

Australian Cabernet

Sauvignon, Merlot and -

Grenache also have a
devoted following around
the world, and combinations
of all. of these (labeled
Shiraz/Cabernet, for
example, or
Cabernet/Merlot) are most
popular.

Australian white wines tend

to be full-bodied and ripe in.

style, with rounded flavors
and moderate acidity.
Chardonnay is the most
important varietal, with the
best sporting a ‘honeyed’
finish with aromas of apple,
pear and sometimes
butterscotch. French oak
barrel aging is common but
not universal, and when
used is not as great as is
found among, for example,
California Chardonnays.

Semillon is another favorite

Australian wine variety, .

either standing alone or
blended with Chardonnay
in a unique Australian
combination. In cooler
areas, dry, aromatic Riesling
is also on the rise both in
quantity and reputation.
Colombard and Verdelho
both have traditional
devotees. Among popular
and delicious dessert wines
is the classic Australian
White Wine varietal, Muscat
of Alexandria.

Australia’s emerging
powerhouse offers a full
variety of fruity, accessible
wines in all major styles;
from dry table wines
to. sparkling wines, fortified
styles, and even vintage
port. Worldwide,
winemakers and
connoisseurs alike are
paying serious attention
as Australian wines, once
appreciated mostly for their
low prices, become better
and more diverse in style.

Poverty ‘often to
blame’ for crime
and violence

CRIME and violence are
often caused by adverse cir-
cumstances, according to
Mobafa Baker, the new chair-
person of Pan-Commonwealth
Youth Caucus.

Speaking in New Providence
at the ongoing Commonwealth
Youth Ministers Meeting,
Trinidad native Mr Baker said
the links between poverty, frus-
tration and deviant behaviour
need to be further explored.

“Poverty speaks to crime and
violence, because people
become involved in crime and
violence by way of frustration.

“Some people generally are
deviant and how we deal with
that is one thing, but there are a
lot of other people who take it
as a last resort to try to handle
issues that they are dealing
with,” he said.

The PCYC is the youth wing
of the Commonwealth Youth
Programme (CYP) of the Com-
monwealth Secretariat in Lon-
don.

Mr Baker pointed out that.

crime and violence should be
addressed, particularly in rela-
tion to young people, “because

we are not only perpetrators —"

we are also victims of crime and
violence and how we are
allowed to respond to that we
need to look at.”

The new chairman also has
very specific views about unem-
ployment. He said young per-
sons need help when transi-
tioning from the world of edu-
cation to the job market, espe-
cially if they have to accept jobs
that are not commensurate with
their qualifications.

Hodder appointment a slap in the face?

Dex I say it? The
appointment of Jayne

tlodder as president of the Col-
iege of The Bahamas is an
affront to everything the Christie
administration has ever said
about Bahamianisation, nation-
alism and putting Bahamians
tirst.

Mrs Hodder is not the issue
here; she is likely quite capable
and I wish her well in her new
capacity at the institution from
which I earned an associates
degree, served on its council and
led iis student government.

However, she has been
‘appointed by political adminis-
tration that mouthed repeatedly
before the 2002 general election
that it would give Bahamians the
opportunity to shine in their own
country.

They shamelessly accused the
former administration of being
“foreign first” and treating
Bahamians like “second class cit-
izens” in their own country.
Now, they are appointing a for-
eigner to lead the highest insti-
tution of learning in our land;
this after being led for decades
by Bahamians.

The government is admitting
that there is no Bahamian avail-
able or who could be found to
‘lead the College of The
Bahamas, our national educa-

‘tion centre of learning. In fact,
the government has conceded
that even Bahamians with the
highest academic credentials and
a career commitment to the Col-
lege of The Bahamas are not
capable of leading the college.
Instead, the college must be led
oy a foreigner and one who does

not have the academic crédential
that was called for when the
position was advertised.

This is the concession of a
group of politicians who arro-
gantly boasted that “Bahamians
can do anything, if they are giv-
en the opportunity to do so”.
Yes they can do anything, except
lead their own national tertiary

Imagine that - The Bahamas’
top college must be led into uni-
versity glory piloted by foreign
hands. If the college achieves
university. status, the current
administration would boast from
dusk till dawn that doing so is a

great national achievement for

our independent nation. Yet,
this same administration sees
nothing contradictory today
about hiring a non-Bahamian on
a three-year contract to lead the
charge.

Only a government that is
firmly committed to Bahamian-
isation could do such a thing.
Only a government dedicated to
nationalism, that its prime min-

Once-common coral
on endangered list

= By: Tribune Staff Writer

TWO of the world’s most
common coral species, which in
the past could be found in abun-
dance in the Bahamas, have
been‘ listed as endangered
species.

On May 9, the Fisheries Ser-
vice-of the National Oceano-
graphic and Atmospheric
Agency (NOAA) registered
elkhorn' (Acropora palmata)
and staghorn corals (Acropora
cervicornis) as threatened, with
official listing effective 30 days
later.

This constitutes the first time
a coral species has been listed as
endangered or threatened

under the US’ Endangered’

Species Act (ESA).

John Rollino, principal inves-
tigator of Earthwatch’s Bahami-
an Reef Survey project and
senior ecologist at Earth Tech
-told ‘the Science, Technology,

Physics, Space News that the”
decline of these two species is ©

likely a symptom of global
warming — which is impacting
coral reefs around the world.

Mr Rollino said that during
the last year, huge portions of
reef,in the eastern Caribbean
have undergone drastic decline
duejto coral mortality from
aboye average water tempera-
tures,

“Some of the individual coral
colonies that perished last year
were,alive over a hundred years
ago;;: he said.

Scientists now believe that
the loss of these coral species
could, be the first sign of an
unravelling coral reef ecosys-
tem: .

For.the last 14 years, teams
fronishe international institute
EartHwatch have collected data
on edral decline in the waters
around San Salvador.

Both elkhorn coral and
staghorn coral were common at
the %start, forming massive
branches -which provided cov-
er fora diversity of reef fish.

ryt

eQl,

However, in recent years
these coral species have become
practically absent from San Sal-
vador’s reefs.

Elkhorn and staghorn are the
most abundant groups of coral
in the world and once the most
important reef-building species
in the Caribbean.

Hi TWO species of coral are under threat



TI sae ene



“The overwhelming majori-
ty of the decline of elkhorn and
staghorn corals on San Salvador
was by disease, most notably
white band disease, coupled
with the 1998 mass bleaching

that the attorney general’s office can do and
we are simply saying that we believe that the
matter should be referred to the Coroner’s
court and at the end of the day the recom-
mendations would come from the jury and
then the magistrate. If the attorney general is
minded to use her powers and proceed in
the matter then we suffer it to be so,” Mr
Sands said.
Officer Charlow was expected to be
arraigned at 11am yesterday. However, when
. 1lam came and went and the officer was not
seen, the crowd on Bank Lane grew anxious.
It was not until several minutes before
noon when Tracy Charlow, wife of the
accused officer, called for some of her fami-
ly members to come to Court One that it
became evident that Charlow was already
inside the courtroom.
















At that point the crowd on Bank Lane
paraded upstairs to Chief Magistrate Roger
Gomez’s court.

When the media got to the courtroom,
however, it was made known that the arraign-
ment had already taken place.

The Tribune later learned from officer
Charlow’s lawyer that, because of the large
crowd on Bank Lane, Charlow was taken
into court through another entrance. Charlow
left the court holding hands with his wife and
surrounded by a group of plainclothes offi-
cers.

According to Anthony Delaney, the pros-
ecutor from the attorney general’s office,
Charlow was not required to plead to the
manslaughter charge and was granted bail
in the sum of $10,000 with two sureties.

A preliminary inquiry has been set for July
28 and the case has been transferred to Court
11, Nassau Street.

cerned and stressed because my
constituents in Williams Town and
Russell Town could be in trouble
should another hurricane hit us,”
Mr Grant said.

“There are many homes throughout
Grand Bahama that remain unpre-
pared. One only need drive through
the various settlements and they can
see there is much work to be done,”
Mr Grant said.

Two weeks ago in the House of
Assembly Mr Grant expressed con-
cern over the fact that there were a
number of contractors who were given
contracts to do repairs on homes in
Grand Bahama and the repairs were
halted abruptly.

“They were told in one instance
that there was a change in the minister
which was nonsense and they were
told that the money ran out. I think
that the money ran out. Jerome God-
frey (local coordinator for NEMA in
Grand Bahama) told persons that he
was waiting on a budget and that does
not make sense,” Mr Grant said.

However, speaking with The Tri-
bune, Mr Godfrey, pointed out that
budgets are required items when it
comes to government spending and
every penny spent not only has to be
accountable to the government, but
to the people.

“If at a point in time a budget is
not in place it will be put into place. I
believe for the most part we have been
positively received but regrettably




Grand Bahama

there will be people who will not be
satisfied, but I believe in the majority
of cases people have received a level of
relief that has made them more com-
fortable,” Mr Godfrey said.

However, the homes NEMA has
not been able to complete for one rea-
son or another has been a cause of
concern for him.

“We are concerned that in very
short order the season will be upon
us and we would want people to be
comfortable and focus only on pre-
paredness other that the things that
would linger from the last hurricane.
So, as I speak, we are making all
efforts to complete all the repair work
that we have at hand.

“Even if we are not finished before
the hurricane season starts we will
make all efforts to be completed
before the midst of the season, but by
June first we may not be finished, but
we are making all efforts to be com-
pleted before then. A number of fac-
tors have caused the slow down, bud-
getary considerations has been among
them,” Mr Godfrey said.

Pleasant Bridgewater, MP for Mar-
co City, has a less pessimistic outlook
on the situation in Grand Bahama
than does Mr Grant. She agreed that
there was still a significant percentage
of homes not ready for the hurricane
season, but for the most part the
majority of people are ready and
putting themselves in readiness.

“We are not quite there yet, but we

THE TRIBUNE.



are working towards it. A number. of
people are trying to repair their homes
after the last three hurricanes but, toa
large extent, the majority of person’s
homes have been in a better condi-
tion than they have been for a very
long time,” she said.

Steady progress, is being made, she.
said, and now that the season is
approaching, persons are starting to
speed it up.

More people, more so than in the
past, Mrs Bridgewater said have their
insurance paid up and have their prop-
erties insured.

However, the MP said she was still
concerned because of the talk of this
year being an active season. The
National Hurricane Centre predicts
an above average tropical season with
13 to 16 named storms, 8 to10 hurri-
canes and 4 to 6 hurricanes of Cate-
gory 3 strength or above. :

This fact also raises concerns about
the public infrastructure and its abili-
ty to meet the demands of an active
season.

“T am concerned about that as:it
affects both residential and commer-
cial property. In the last hurricane we
were out of electricity for about a

‘month. We have spoken and written

to the Grand Bahama Port Authority
to ensure that if this (the maintenance
of public infrastructure) happens I
don’t know if they have the manpow-
er, but that is another thing,” Ms
Bridgewater said. .

Nevertheless, the presence of
NEMA on the island has been com-
forting to her.

“No victimisation in FNM coun-

Mrs Russell, however, was
not in office on Wednesday. She
was said to be in New Provi-
dence at the time. She has
denied the allegations against
her of victimisation.

While speaking to the media,
Mr Russell said despite previous
assurances given by Prime Min-
ister Perry Christie victimisa-
tion continues to be committed
against persons at the Prime
Minister’s Office.

“The present prime minister

had heralded many times that
he is not a prime minister of
victimisation, yet still we are
here at his office where victim-
isation has taken place,” said
the MP for High Rock.
’ Mr Russell said that the Free
National Movement govern-
ment removed victimisation
from the country during its past
10 years in office.

committed no victimisation,
in protest to let the rest of our
country know and the people
in Grand Bahama know that
we will not tolerate victimisa-



tion any longer,” he said.

Mr Russell believes that the
action of parliamentary secre-
tary Ann Percentie-Russell was
a blatant and calculated attack
on Lady Whitfield, the widow
of FNM founder and former
party leader, the late Sir Cecil

months later they are faced with
that same daunting task.
“They have nowhere to go,”
Shelia Culmer, president of

‘BNCD, said at a press confer-
_ence yesterday. The contract

they entered into with govern-
ment only allowed assistance
for a year. That same contract
now leaves Thompson, Stuart,
Flowers and Storr without a
place to stay as of June 10.
Their apartment in Sandi-
lands Village not only provides
them with a place to lay their

vides them with an environment
in which they are not ashamed

to be who they are and not

embarrassed fo live with their

Another dream of these four

Stuart, who is diagnosed with
cerebral palsy, said people often:

the other three men and, in fact,
all persons, whether disabled or
not - independence is the ability
to live as one chooses and with-
in that context of choice there
must be allowances made to suit
the person’s individual needs.

“This struggle is not just for

us,” Thompson said, “but all
disabled people in the Bahamas
even those unborn.”

.To prove this claim the men
appealed to the prime minister
in November and again in
March to ask for Crown land
on which to build a home for
the disabled to live indepen-
dently. A blueprint of the facil-

‘ity has already been designed. If

completed it will accommodate
16 disabled adults.
“Independence doesn’t mean
living on our own or in an apart-
ment, home, or hotel — it’s sim-
ply means to be able to achieve
the goals in life,” Thompson
explained. Their greatest desire
is to live independently but sev-
eral things are stopping them
from making that dream a real-

Thompson places most of the.,
blame for their present dilemma ,
at the door of Minister of Social ,

He believes she could have _

done more to preserve their res-

. “She does not care to under-

The Cheshire Home is to be ; a

home for disabled children in :

the near future. Thompson

argued that the children will’. a

become adults some day. “What

then?” he asked. “Will they be ‘ :

kicked out as we have?”

He believes that Mrs Grittia:

is “insensitive to the Teal needs

of disabled persons.”

Mr Russell claims that it is
not the first time that: Lady
Whitfield has been locked out
of her office. He also noted that
other persons have complained
from time to time. of victimisa-
tion at the office.

He said. Prime Minister .

Christie, who is ultimately
responsible for the office, has
failed to live up:to his word.

“We have not attempted to
reach ‘the Prime Minister
because he was told on more
than one occasion that his par-
liamentary secretary in Freeport
was victimising people in Grand
Bahama.

“He was asked over and over

to deal’with this problem and

he promised me personally that
this will not happen again, and I
am disappointed because his
word meant absolutely noth-
ing.” -!

“We didn’t demonstrate then,

becausé’ we thought he would -

live up to his word. Unfortu-
nately, lie did not live up to his
word and we now have to
ensure that he gets the message
from us in Grand Bahama.”
Mr Russell said he has proof
that Mrs Russell had the lock

Study: Almost half of those living
in poverty are children under 15_

@ By NEIL HARTNELL
Tribune Business Editor



Imost half of all peo-

ple living in poverty

in the Bahamas are

children aged under

15 years-old, a paper
published at a World Bank confer-
ence has found.

The study on Protecting Disabled
Children in Vulnerable Families in the
Bahamas, presented at a World Bank
conference in December 2005, found
that the “poverty rates for children
are higher” than those for adults, with
“one half of the poor under the age, of
15”.

The findings by the quartet of Lil-
ian Quant-Forbes, Kim Sawyer, Gul-
‘sana Turusbekova and Henda Lucia

Ducados are likely to fuel concern |

_ that a whole generation of Bahamians

is being left behind, with the pur-
ported economic benefits from the
much-touted foreign direct invest-
ment projects failing to reach those
who need it most.

Minimum wage doubling | Abaco Markets seeks

The paper found that 16.6 per cent
of Bahamian children aged between
0-4 years-old were living in poverty,
meaning that about one in every six
children born in this nation are born
into poverty.

Children in this age group account-
ed for 18 per cent of the total number
living in poverty in this nation.

For children aged between 5-14,

‘some 13.9 per cent were living in

poverty, accounting for 31.9 per cent
of Bahamas residents who were clas-
sified as poor.

This means that some 49. 9p per cent
of Bahamas residents living in pover-
ty are children aged 14 years-old and
younger. ‘

In addition, some 9.1 per cent of

Bahamas residents aged between 15-
19 years-old were living in poverty,
according to the study, accounting for
7.5 per cent of all poor persons. -
When this age group is added in,
some 57.4 per cent or just over 16,000

of all Bahamas residents living in‘
poverty, are either teenagers or young:

children.

would ‘create havoc’

& By CARA BRENNEN
Tribune. Staff.Reporter

ANY decision to. double the
$150 per week minimum wage
would create economic havoc, the
Bahamas Employers Confedera-
tion’s (BeCON) president told
The Tribune yesterday, after such
an increase was suggested by a
trade union leader.

Brian Nutt said any call to
increase the minimum wage from
$150 to $300 per week would not
be practical or responsible for a
number of reasons.

He said that this figure would
then apply across the board to all
workers, including young persons
just starting to work straight from
high school, and those trying to
learn anew: profession as appren-
tices. ‘



and the woman ‘work and hire a
housekeeper to watch their chil-
dren while they are at work. If
they are forced to pay a $300 a
week salary, many of them would
have to have one person quit their
job to stay with the kids, because
that would make more sense,”
Mr Nutt said.

The BECon president added
that in many cases, the minimum
wage did not recognise employee
salaries that were paid in kind,
such as free lodging, or persons
whose salaries were based on oth-
er factors, such as tips or com-
missions.

The Government should not

“In many households, the man

try to legislate wages, Mr Nutt

. Said, because it.was..best left to

the employee and employer

‘based on the worth and value of

the employees’ performance.
Mr. Nutt’s comments came on
the heels of comments published
in The Tribune yesterday, where
union leaders .Patrick Bain and

Obie Ferguson had. predicted a

grave future for Bahamian work-
ers if things did not change.

The unions are expected to
prepare a list of recommenda-
tions on the labour code, address-
ing issues they believe negatively
affect workers in the Bahamas,
and present it to Labour Minister,
Shane Gibson.

Among the recommendations
was the suggestion that the mini-
mum wage be increased by 100
per cent, from $150 to $300 a
week.

Mr Ferguson’s rationale for the
increase was that “the average
worker cannot survive on the
minimum wage. The cost of living

is too high”.

Mr Gibson said yesterday that
it was difficult for him to com-
ment on the possibility of the

Government increasing the min- °

imum wage at this stage, but
added that he would be very
interested to know how Mr Fer-
guson had arrived at the $300 Pel
week figure.

Mr Gibson said that once he.

Tourism generates
63% of employment

TOURISM accounted for
97,383 jobs or 63 per cent of
total employment in the
Bahamas in 2003, a study of
the industry’s impact has
found, with the sector gener-
ating 61 per cent or $1.6 bil-
lion of all wages.

The first Tourism Satellite
Accounting (TSA) of the
Bahamas, the method used by
the United Nations (UN) and
its World Tourism Organisa-
tion (WTO) to measure touris-
m’s economic impact on a
country, found that the sector’s
total economic contribution to
this nation in 2003 was $2.8 bil-
lion or 51 per cent of GDP.

The study was performed by
Global Insight, the same eco-
nomic forecasting consultancy
that estimated the impact Baha
Mar’s $1.6 billion Cable Beach
redevelopment and the con-
troversial $175 million Baker’s
Bay Golf & Ocean Club would
have for the Bahamas.

Global Insight did not out-
line the methodology it used
to arrive at its 2003 tourism
impact findings in the material
released yesterday by the Min-
istry of Tourism:

However, it found that
tourism was responsible for
generating almost $468 million
in tax revenues for the
Bahamian government during
2003, some 48 per cent or
$223.274 million of that coming
in import duties.

The $468 million would have
been 51 per cent of the Gov-
ernment’s $919 million rev-
enues in the 2002-2003 Budget
year, and 48.8 per cent of the
total 2003-2004 intake of $959
million.

Global Insight estimated
that the tourism industry gen-
erated $70.28 million in depar-
ture taxes during 2003, some

City Markets ‘stake’

The findings are likely to make
grim reading for economic and social
policymakers, as they indicate that a
large percentage of the population is
starting out with a disadvantaged

home background during an era when.

the, global economy, has become
increasingly competitive.

The study prepared for the World
Bank conference said that 9.3 per cent
of Bahamas residents, close to one in
10, were classified as being poor. Pre-
vious studies have shown that chil-
dren from backgrounds of poverty,
particularly in societies such as the
Bahamas where there is great income
inequality, with the wealthy living in
close proximity to the very poor, often
have little option but to find work in
informal professions, suey as the. drug
trade.

The study looked at the social assis-
tance and insurance programmes
operated by the Ministry of Social
Services and Community Develop-
ment in 2002-2003.

It found that the Ministry spent $1.8
million on providing food coupons,

«which gave short and long-term assis-
tance with food purchases, to some
2,149 “beneficiaries” during that fiscal
year.

In addition, the Ministry provided
$71,600 in financial assistance to a

_ further 249 families, which helped to

meet water and electricity bills, plus
clothing and household items, mort-
gages, medical care: and school sup-
plies costs.

Among those targeted for this assis-
tance were poor and indigent per-
sons, and low income earners.

The Ministry also spent $662,000
on providing school lunches to the
children of low income and unem-
ployed parents in 3,171 cases. It also
provided $13,700 to 183 students to

help them buy uniforms and footwear..

And some 226 low income house-
holds received $240,300 to subsidise
their rental of public housing in 2002-
2003.

The study’s statistics indicate how a
large part of Bahamian society is in
danger of being excluded from the

ABACO Markets last night said it was seeking to buy a “minor-
ity interest” in the group purchasing the majority 78 per cent
stake in chief rival Bahamas Supermarkets, and confirmed it was
selling its Solomon’s SuperCentre in Marsh Harbour to Price

Right.

Craig Symonette, Abaco Markets chairman and chief executive,
said his own investment in BSL Holdings was a “passive” one,
implying that he would take no active role in Bahamas Super-
markets affairs and thus prevent any appearance of a conflict of

interest.

In a statement, he said of Abaco Markets’ investment in BSL
Holdings: “The prospect of a minority investment in BSL Holdings
may present new opportunities for our company in the form of syn-

ergies.”

That leaves the way open for a potential future merger between

nce an entrepreneur has
analysed the specific needs of
his business, he must decide on
the business space to run his
operation.
After selecting the appropriate location for
the nature and structure of his business, if he will

be renting space, he must then consider the

legal implications of the lease he will sign with
the landlord or owner of the space.

- A lease is simply a. contractual agreement
between the landlord (person renting the busi-
ness space) and the tenant (person/entity to
whom the business space is rented), which out-
lines the duration of the rental of the business

space, rental amount, and terms and conditions
of the tenancy, including any and all restric-
tions, duties, rights, responsibilities and obliga-
tions of both parties.

A lease may be for the short or long-term.
However, there are certain characteristics that
must exist for a lease to be considered a valid
lease. |

The Essential Characteristics of a Valid Lease

1. The tenant must have the right to exclusive
possession of the premises that is the subject
of the lease. If the person granting the lease
remains in general control of the demised
premises, no tenancy is created.

Additionally, if there is no defined premises
for the lease, only a contractual obligation to
provide storage for goods with no defined space,
this arrangement would be considered a mere
licence and not a tenancy, notwithstanding lan-
guage in the tenancy document indicating the
intention to create a lease.

2. A lease cannot be for an uncertain period.

3. A lease must also be created in the proper
way, following the relevant legal formalities,
particularly if it is a lease to create a legal estate
(which should be made by deed for enforce-
ability and assignment).

Types of Commercial Leases

1. A lease may be granted for a fixed period of
certain duration, whether short or long term.

However, both the commencement and duration .

of the lease’s term must either be certain or be
rendered certain before the lease takes effect. A
lease for a fixed period automatically deter-
mines when the fixed period expires on the
lease.

5. A tenancy at will is where a tenant, with thee
consent of the landlord, occupies premises as oe

under a tenancy at will agree that the tenancy *,
will be rent free, the landlord in entitled tox

duration, a commercial lease should specify the*’

instances, the sub-tenant). The parties may, also" -
agree to be bound the “usual covenants”. ;

Study op Abaco Markets seeks City Markets ‘stake’

poverty

with one in five from that age
group neither employed nor in
the education system. As a
result, many were in danger of
being left behind, drifting into
a lifestyle’ of drugs and crime.

The Royal Bahamas Police
Force (RBPF) _ recently
expressed concern that many
house break-ins were being
committed during the day by
academically-challenged
teenagers who should have
been attending school.

A previous World Bank
study in 2004 forecast that a 1
per cent decrease in youth
_ crime in the Bahamas would
increase tourist receipts by 2.3
per cent per annum, while
deaths from AIDS contracted
during adolescence cost this
nation 0.17 per cent of gross
- domestic product (GDP) in
2000. -

Meanwhile, the Coalition for
Education reform, a group
formed ‘from various employer
and trade union organisations,
revealed last year that students
from New Providence public
high schools achieved an aver-
age grade of ‘F’ in their 2004
BGCSE exams.

The Coalition described this
as “truly disturbing” and

ette saying: “We operate in a highly compet
itive market — one which requires us to think
out of the box when it comes to delivering
on our shareholder investment.

“We are steadfast in our comnutment to
Abaco Markets. focusing on our day-to-day
operations and pursuing strategic interests to
support our return to productivity and prof-
itability.’

The last statement is likely to be an attempt
to reassure Abaco Markets investors that Mr
Symonette remains fully committed to thei
company

Several minority shareholders in the retail
group, which is listed on the Bahamas Inter-
national Securities Exchange (BISX), had
previously expressed concerns that the invest-
ment by Mr Symonette and fellow Abaco
Markets director, Franklyn Butler, in BSL
Holdings were akin to abandoning them for a
better-performing company that was a direct
competitor.

The Tribune was also told yesterday that
the sale of Solomon’s SuperCentre in Marsh
Harbour, Abaco, was not being done to raise
cash that would enable Abaco Markets to
fund its investment in BSL Holdings.

Lesley Davies-Baptista, the company’s vice-
president of marketing, said last night: “The
divestment decision was made prior to BSL.
Abaco is a market, in terms of growth poten-
tial, where we deployed a considerable
amount of capital, and the returns we got for



it performed below expectations.

“We’ve made a ‘conscious decision to focus
on markets we can grow in.’

That will reassure minority shareholders
who may have been feeling that the decision to
sell the Solomon’s SuperCentre could have
been more for BSL Holdings and Bahamas
Supermarkets’ benefit, rather than theirs and
Abaco Markets.

One source said yesterday: “What is the
reason tor this sale? What is the strategic
plan?”

“As we continue to focus our efforts on a
return lo profitability and an increase in our
sharcholder value, it is clear that we need to
reposition our company to grow in the mar-
kets that present the greatest opportunity,”
said Mr Symonette.

“Over the years, we have deployed a sig-
nificant level of capital in Abaco with results
that have been well below expectations. This
strategy gives us the opportunity to redeploy
capital for further debt reduction and for
growth opportunities in New Providence and
Grand Bahama - which we consider to be
our core markets.”
The purchase price being paid for the

_ Solomon’s store in Abaco by Price Right,

headed by business partners Chad Sawyer
and Super Value president Rupert Roberts,
was nol disclosed.

It is understood that Price Right had been
planning to construct a new store to replace its
existing one, which was extensively damaged
by the 2004 hurricane season and storm surges.

However, rather than build, the company
decided to approach Abaco Markets to see if
it was interested in selling.

Abaco Markets experienced difficulties with
its Abaco operations late last year, dispatching
its No. 2 executive at its Nassau Solomon’s
SuperCentre to take charge after manage-
ment there lost control of inventory. The Aba-
co operations acted as a drag on the fourth
quarter results.

No mention was made of Abaco Markets’
other Abaco outlets, the Cost Right store and
the Treasure Cay store, the latter of which is
said to be interesting Lowell Albury, one of
Abaco Markets’ first directors.

The Solomon’s store’s disposal will enable
the company to redeploy capital and resources
to achieve a better return.

Mr Symonette said the interest of employ-
ees was key during negotiations:and selling
that operation “to a well grounded competitor

~ and community member with a proven track

record was the best option for our employees
and for the stability of operations there”.

The purchaser has agreed to secure the
employment of most of the Solomon’s Abaco
employees.

Mr Symonette said no disclosure could
come before a US Bankruptcy Court
approved the Bahamas Supermarkets sale to
BSL Holdings, approval for which was
received late last week.

,Abaco Markets confirmed the appropriate
disclosures had been made to both BISX and
the Securities Commission on Monday.

FROM page 1B

The parties to a lease should
ensure that certain provisions
for repairs, insurances, indem-
nification, leasehold improve-
ments, options to renew,
notices and termination of the
lease are explicit and discussed
‘in detail before execution.

In the absence of express
terms and conditions or the
usual covenants, there are
implied covenants for quiet
enjoyment, which allow ten-
ants to recover damages from
the landlord if the person to
whom the covenant extends,
physically and substantially
interferes with the tenant’s
enjoyment of the demised
premises.

In addition to the implied
covenant of quiet enjoyment, a
landlord has an obligation not
to derogate from his grant to
the demised premises, and in
some instances, to ensure that
certain premises are fit and in
good repair.

The tenant has an obligation
to pay rent, rates and assess-
. ments, not to commit waste,
and allow the landlord to view
the demised premises to make
repairs, in the absence of the
express terms and conditions.

To be a good defender, you must

Fortunately, there are nearly always

North and South to bid notrump at
any point. :

East wins the heart with the ace.

and returns the ten. He hopes partner
has the K-J, in which case, if dummy
can be forced to ruff a heart, East’s
queen of clubs will become the set-
ting trick.

Declarer covers the ten with the
queen, and West wins with the king.
West does not know at this point that
East has the Q-x of clubs, but he can
easily deduce that the jack-of-hearts
continuation offers the best chance of
defeating the contract.

West arrives at this conclusion
by assuming that South, who bid
clubs three times, must have at least
seven of them. Since declarer has
already produced two hearts, it fol-

‘lows that South’s four unknown

cards, whatever they are, are fully
covered by dummy’s two sets of A-
K’s. ‘

It is therefore clear that no advan-
tage can accrue from retuming a
spade, a diamond or a trump at trick
three. The only real chance is that
East has either the Q-x or J-10 of
clubs, in which case forcing dummy
to ruff a heart will promote a trump
trick for the defense.

If West fails to lead the jack of.

hearts at trick three, declarer makes
the contract, but with that lead, South
must go down one.

STUBBS [Tueres been some

good news and some

bad news in sports this past

week, depending on how
you look at it.

The good news is that

Sherman ‘the Tank’

Williams could get a shot at



news is that Ryan Sweeting
has given up his Bahamian
citizenship.

The timing for the two
announcements couldn’t
have come at a more oppor-
tune time.

Williams is on the verge of
climbing up the ladder in the
heavyweight ranks and a vic-
tory, if the fight is arranged
as planned in Honolulu,
Hawaii in July, it could play
a major part in his future.

Now, many of you might
say that Tyson is a “washed
up, old” fighter, who has had

.dominated the heavyweight

with his ferocious style back
in the ’90s. J

This will be Tyson’s third
attempt at a comeback and
he would certainly need a
quality fighter like Williams
with a “clean reputation”
and a “decent record” to
spur him on.

Assist

The anticipation is already
building for the showdown

that could work out well for:

both fighters, but it will def-
initely assist Williams with
such a big name on his
resumé.

A victory could help him
boost his chances of secur-
ing a ranking in any of the
four major international
boxing organisations and
eventually get him set up on
the road for a possible world
title shot.

Williams has had a storied
career so far and he’s on the
verge of bigger and better
things. A fight against Tyson
will be more than feather in
his cap. .

While it could turn out to
be a good story to follow,
Bahamians are quite disap-
pointed that rising young
tennis star Ryan Sweeting
has decided to abandon the
Bahamas and will be wear-
ing the American flag in the
future.

Bahamas Lawn Tennis
Association’s. president
Giorgio Baldacci confirmed
that Sweeting had submitted
a letter, indicating that he
will no longer play for the
Bahamas.

His mother, Cindy, said it
was a “tough” decision, but
one that she and her son

_ carefully considered.

There’s been a lot of
debate about whether or not

Bodybuilder -

Stubbs carrying

heavy workload

@ BODYBUILDING
By KELSIE JOHNSON
Junior Sports Reporter

‘SECURING professional status is a dream
for most amateur athletes, but having to bal-
ance that accomplishment with a daily nine-
to-five job can be difficult.

Bahamas’ first professional bodybuilder
Joel Stubbs is currently faced with carrying
out his daily duties for Bahamasair and
adding his weekly work-out sessions to his
schedule.

Stubbs secured his pro-status in 2003 by
winning the top prize at the Central Ameri-
can and Caribbean (CAC) championships,
the next goal on Stubbs’ agenda was to qual-
ify for Mr Olympia.

In his debut show, the Europa Super
Show, Stubbs received special accolades from
fans, judges, journalists and photographers
for his well defined back.

Although he finished up 12th in the com-
petition he was awarded a second opportu-
nity to qualify for the Mr Olympia, but
Stubbs’ lower body wasn’t defined enough
and as a result he didn’t make the cut. |

Stubbs said: “Pretty much I am behind in
my training due to the work load that IJ had.
I was supposed to have competed in a show
earlier this year but I wasn’t in any shape
physically.

“It is very hard, me having a full-time job
and ‘trying to train for competition. But, you
know, balancing the whole thing is not that
big of a problem, I had to do pretty much the
same thing when I was on the amateur status.
' “Training means that I need to put in at
least two and half hours of hard work-outs,
and I can do that. either in the mornings or
afternoons, these hourly training sessions all
depend on my shift at Bahamasair.

. “I’ve learned how to get my training in,
but when you’re working out on a profes-
sional level now the meals are a must. This is
the difficulty when you have to tote around

your six meals a day. You have to get in the

required amount of food, and supplements
on this level, it is not like the amateur level
where you could have probably slack: off one
day and make up the other days.”

Stubbs’ diet plan is an unusual one. Unlike
the ordinary diet plans where the person
tries to eat less, Stubbs must have a daily
intake six times a day, every three hours.
These meals are responsible for keeping the
calorie level high.

Six days out of seven you can find Stubbs in
the gym Planet Fitness working feverishly
on trying to perfect his body.

With the annual Europa Show, set for
Arlington, Texas on August 24th and 25th,
Stubbs is hoping that his double dose of hard
work will pay off.

A particular work-out session for Stubbs is
based on the day of the week. On Monday,
Stubbs works on his shoulders and legs with
Tuesday designated for back and triceps and
Wednesday back and biceps. Thursday’s
work-out is a repeat of Monday’s while on

’ Friday and Saturday he will take on Tuesday ©

and Wednesday’s schedule.

He said: “I am training on a split right now,
where I train every day except Sunday for
two and a half hours.

“The split training means that I have to
split my body working on each body part
twice a week. So on Mondays I will do shoul-
ders and legs and so forth. Sunday is my rest

day since I do have a full time job.
“I haven’t qualified for Mr Olympia. I did ©

one show last year, my first pro-show. I got a
lot of props and accolades from the top body-
builders but I had a downfall my legs. They
did say I need to go back to the drawing
board and balance my legs.”

_ After having his back spread featured in
the Flex Magazine last December, Stubbs
says that he is placing most of his attention
for the upcoming show on developing his
lower body, re-introducing the squats in his
work-out.

ENGLAND won't be
dwelling: on its Ashes thriller at
Edgbaston’ when it meets Sri
Lanka in‘the second test starting
on Thursday.

At the’same ground last year,
England beat ‘Australia by two
runs td'lévelthe series before
goirtg on’ atm win cricket's prized
Urn i ‘

"Ete as! veantastic ‘bit: to be
honest.with.) you, that was a year
ago," England captain Andrew
Flintoff said Wednesday.
"We" ré not here to dwell on
what ‘Happened i in the Ashes last
year, we've got ‘a test match
against. Sa aks starting
tomorrow:

"Wa-sawakast week:.at Lord's
that Sri Lanka: are.a ‘talented,

tomorrew, we can't be thinking
about former, glories."

England has-won just one test
in its’ la eight and knows its'
fielding’ will‘come under scruti-
ny in‘its‘next ‘appearance.

The old: adage "catches win
matches" was particularly apt
when theéhoime team put'down
niné chances:in. the.drawn first
test at Lord’ Ss. earlier this month.
The dropped. catches proved
costly when Sri “Lanka ‘batted
for more. ‘than 14° hours ‘in its
second i innings to'draw a match
England should ‘have won:

After England's first innings
of 551-6, the tourists made just
192 and’ were forced .to follow
on, scoring:537-9 and hailed for
a great escape.

"Obviously, we'd like to go
one further and win the games,





Flintoff, said. "I don't think .

we're ‘that far away. 1 think we

‘lintoff: En



did play some good cricket ...
and a couple of mistakes cost us
winning the game so we're not
that far away and-hopefully it
can come together this week."
Flintoff, who is again stand-
ing in for injured captain
Michael Vaughan, admits he is
learning "all the time." But he
dismissed suggestions he's being
pulled in too many directions
with off-field commitments.

"T'm.a cricketer, I enjoy play-.

ing cricket," Flintoff said. "After
my family, it's probably the
most important thing in my life,
so-I'm not going to lose direc-
tion ... I'm not going to take my
eye off the ball.

"Things off the field come
around by performing on it. If
that stops, there's going to be
nothing there." ~

Policy

Veteran Sri Lanka batsman
Sanath Jayasuriya, who was
called out of retirement and
flown ‘to England during the
first test, will not play in the sec-
ond as the team maintains its
youth policy.

Jayasuriya retired from test
cricket in April to make way for
younger players after amassing
6,613 runs in 102 matches.

"We told the young guys that
we will give them the necessary
opportunities," Sri Lanka cap-
tain Mahela Jayawardene said.
"It's a big decision, but we'll
have to give them the opportu-
nities that they deserve.

"If we realize that is not the
path then we can make a
change, but without giving them
that opportunity, it's not fair."

Jayawardene said Jayasuriya
had accepted the decision and
didn't rule him out of playing

in the third test starting at Trent
Bridge, Nottingham, on June 2.

Paceman Lasith Malinga, who
was overlooked for the Lord's
match, is a possible starter in
Birmingham after being includ-
ed in the tourists’ 12-man squad
for the second test.

The 22-year-old Malinga,

known for his unusual bowling |

action, snared a five-wicket haul
in a tour match against Sussex
last week.

England fast bowler Sajid

wickets in nine balls on debut
in the first test looks set to fea-
ture again at Edgbaston, with

‘first-pick pacemen Steve Harmi-

son (shin) and Simon Jones
(knee) still injured.

Jon Lewis could be 12th man
unless the selectors opt for an
all-pace attack, which would
mean leaving out crowd favorite

Brown, Amertil among
favourites for jacxpot

@ TRACK AND FIELD
By RENALDO DORSETT
Sports Reporter

FOR the third year in a row,
Bahamian athletes have
appeared on a short list of
favourites for the International
Association of Athletics Feder-
ations Golden League Jackpot.

Quartermilers Chris Brown
and Christine Amertil have
emerged as two of the

favourites to capture shares of




@



Someone is g going to walk ¢

the sports' coveted $1 million
dollar jackpot.

In the most recent IAAF
rankings released on Monday,
Brown was.ranked second in
the 400m, just behind World
and Olympic champion Jeremy
Wariner of the United States,
while Amertil is ranked fourth
behind American Sanya
Richards, Tonique Williams-
Darling, and Ana Guevara of
Mexico.

Wariner has dominated the *



MIAMI HERALD SPORTS

event since winning the
Olympic title in Athens less
than two years ago.

Brown set a new Bahamian
indoor record in the 400m, post-
ing a time of 45.78s at the IAAF
World Indoor Championships
in Moscow, Russia earlier this
year.

This year's 400m field is
extremely potent with three ath-
letes already posting sub 45s
times.

Ranked just behind Brown in






































































third is Great Britain's Tim
Benjamin.

Benjamin is the last person
to have beaten Wariner in the
event.

Americans Lashawn Merritt
(13), the 2004 World Junior
champion, Wariner's training
partner and collegiate team-
mate Darold Williamson (11),
Gary Kikaya (6) of the Democ-
ratic Republic of Congo and
Canadian Tyler Christopher (5),
who had a breakout season last
year finishing just ahead of
Brown for a bronze medal at
the World Championships, will
all look to contend for the title,
making the mens 400m one of
the more anticipated Golden
League events of the season.

Amertil also has had an
excellent season thus far, post-
ing a time of 50.34s in a third
place finish at the World Indoor
Championships.

Like Brown, she too will face
a deep and star-studded field.

Russia's Svetlana Pospelova, |
European indoor champion and
ranked 7th in the world, Amer-
ican Monique Henderson (6)
and Amy Mbacke Thiam of
Senegal (8) are also top con-
tenders in field. The latter post-
ing the second and third fastest
times on the season of 50.83s
and 50.86s respectively.

Two years ago, Chandra Stur-
rup fell just short of capturing a
share of the million dollar prize,
and last year Tonique Williams-
Darling captivated the country



with her quest for the series of
wins, claiming a significant slice
of the jackpot.

Other 2006 IAAF Golden
League events include the
Men's 100m, 1500m,
3000/5000m, Long Jump and
Javelin.

The IAAF Golden League
Jackpot has established a new
slate of rules for this year's sea-
son.

Previously, the $1 million
prize was shared by athletes
who won their event at

sporting tourism programme

- i By KELSIE JOHNSON

‘and MARK HUMES

USING the Bahamas’ most attractive assets —

‘sun, sand and sea — to lure some of world’s top ath-
letes, Minister of Youth, Sports and Housing Neville .

Wisdom yesterday announced the newest members
to the sporting tourism programme.

Welcoming Michael Chong, Minister of Inter-
governmental Affairs and Sports for Canada, Wis-
dom took the opportunity to renew, what he hailed
as “a very fruitful and wonderful cooperation with
Canada.”

Wisdom invited Minister Chong to have his coun-
try’s athletes join the Americans in taking advantage
of the attractive training opportunities that the
Bahamas provides, particularly during the difficult
and cold Canadian winters.

He said: “You are aware that you come from a
very cold country, and we have a very warm country.
Part of our sporting tourism policy is to invite coun-
tries like yours, coming from cold climates, to avail
themselves with the opportunity to use our facilities
and to become acquainted with the Bahamas.”

The sporting tourism programme is flourishing
in perfect timing as the Bahamas gets set to build a
state-of-the-art track and field stadium. Along with
the mutli-million dollar stadium the Bahamas will
give world class athletes an opportunity to play in the
newly constructed gymnasium.

The reconstruction of the existing Queen Eliza-

ment’s points in their plan to increase sports involve-
ment and sell the Bahamas.

Wisdom also took the opportunity yesterday to.
highlight the government’s move to upgrade and
construct new sporting facilities in Andros,.

-Eleuthera, and Grand Bahama.

Wisdom added: “It is my intention along with the:
government to take the sporting tourism program
worldwide. One of the initiatives that has. already
been discussed between the two ministers is the
possible establishment of a Commonwealth’ youth,
games, either done by way of an overall games con-
cept or by the way of individual sports. lam looking:
forward to Canada’s support as this ventiite is:
explored further.” :

In conclusion he expressed his gratitude ‘t the:
Canadian sports minister for his commitment:to’a *
renewed acquaintance with the Bahamas in Parties: %
ular, with this new sporting venture.

Before closing out the impromptu press cOnter: ‘
ence, Wisdom told Chong to “send as many Cana?
dians as he can during the winter months to utilise
the facilities we have.”

He added: “Help us to fill our hotels, to get-out:
taxi drivers busy or busier than they are, and.alkof::
the residual benefits that one gets from sports
tourism.”

Some of Canada’s top athletes in track and field:
include Tyler Christopher, Jason Tunks, Peleien
