Unanimous
verdict over
murder of

@ By NATARIO McKENZIE

‘4 AFTER a month of star-

‘tling and at times emotional
testimony;.a jury of eight men
and four women found

_-, Cordell Farrington guilty of .
: the murder of 22-year-old

- Jamal Robins.
The decision was unani-
mous, 12-0. When the verdict

‘+. was read family members of
*- the deceased were elated.
'»Some burst into tears, strug-

gling to maintain their com-
_.posure as the judge continued
- the proceedings.

Emotional

Outside the courtroom,

-!Jamal Robins' parents, who
~had been emotional through-

out the trial, expressed their
relief that it was over and
praised the prosecution for its
work. Jamal's parents said
they were happy with the ver-
dict and that when their son's
remains are turned over to
them, they will take them back
to Freeport for a proper bur-

jal.

"Iam very happy with the

“verdict, justice has been
-" served and now my son can

rest. I can now give him a
proper Christian burial and

-..:.have my. mind at ease,"
-1-"-1-Edward Robins,
'.".*- “father said yesterday. "That’s

Jamal's

my only son, he and I were
very close until somehow he

ie drifted off and I lost control

of him," he said. Mr Robins

called for Farrington to face

the gallows. :
"I want to see him hang
because he showed no mer-

-cy," he said.

An emotional Christine

“-. Scott accused Farrington of

‘intentionally "playing crazy."
Mrs Scott said that she would

_. probably be attending the tri-

al or trials into the deaths of

" the four Grand Bahama boys.

"It's because through me
that they found those boys,"

she said. "I was searching, I -

contacted him (Cordell) and
he came and said that he was
going to help me find my child

. ‘because I know he was the last
‘+ person I saw with my Jamal.

‘So he was the one that I was
supposed to look. for to find
Jamal," she said.

Prosecutors will not say if
they plan to have Farrington

. face separate trials into the
‘ murders of each of the, four

Jamal Robins

Grand Bahama boys. Deputy
director of public prosecutions
Cheryl Grant-Bethel said that

within the next three months:

the prosecution plats to start
those proceedings. A sentenc-
ing hearing for Farrington's
conviction for the murder of
Robins has been scheduled for
September 11 at 2.30 pm.
Following the verdict, Far-
rington had been asked if he

‘had anything to say. He told

the court, "I turned myself in
to police because I knew I
committed a crime," (the rest
was incoherent). Farrington
was whisked away from Bank
Lane in an unmarked police

vehicle after he was escorted '

out of court yesterday.
Throughout the month-long
trial, jurors heard testimony
from thirty-two witnesses,
including those who knew the
accused, police investigators,
forensic experts, psychiatrists
as well as the accused man

who earlier this week gave an’
‘unworn statement from the’

prisoner’s dock. Farrington
was charged in Grand
Bahama in October 2003 with
Robins' murder. He was also
charged with the murders of
four Grand Bahama boys.

The case went to the jury
around 12.30pm yesterday. Ii
was after 3.30pm when they
returned to the courtroom
with a guilty verdict.

Jury

In her summation of the
case, Justice Anita Allen
reminded the jurors of the
oath that they had taken when
they were impanelled, which
was to return a true verdict
based on the facts. She told
the jury that they were the
judges of the facts and could
choose to accept or refuse any
evidence or testimony that
had been presented to them.
_ In Farrington’s defence, Ms
Farquharson had argued that
the accused man suffered from

“abnormality of mind” at
the time he murdered Robins.

She leaned heavily on the tes- —
timony of psychiatrist Dr.

Michael Neville. She had
pointed to the accused man’s
claims of a tumultuous child-
hood consisting of physical
and sexual abuse as a mean:
to justify his later personality

Thousands yet to be paid

a By REUBEN SHEARER

THOUSANDS of students
and adult employees have yet
to be paid despite what Youth
and Housing Minister Neville
Wisdom promised.

The buzz about the mass
employment programme,
launched to revolutionise the

Bahamians has now turned into
anger for some waiting for their
pay.

An inside source at the Sum-
mer Youth Experience Pro-
gramme told The Tribune that
Youth Minister Neville Wisdom
announced twice that $1.8 mil-
lion was allocated by govern-
ment to defray the cost of youth

‘programmes.

According to Judith Hep-

the camp at CR Walker High
School, it has been four days
since she and others were
promised their pay at the end of

Polluted water distribution ‘has to be addressed’

& By CRYSTAL JOHNSON-COLLIE
Tribune Staff Reporter

ANGRY Nassau residents claim they con-
tinue to suffer at the hands of persons who
distribute polluted water to consumers.

Several persons have told The Tribune that
this is a common practice and has to be
addressed because of the health problems
involved.

Angela King said she purchased a five-gallon
bottle of water that had paint and debris inside.

She said that when she opened the bottle a
foul smell was released.

She called on health officials to stop persons
who pretend to sell purified water, but instead
fill bottles with well water.

“Suppose I was a blind person and could not

have seen what was at the bottom of that bot-
tle, I would have drank that water and given it
to my small children. | am aware of so many
elderly people who have gotten use to this
because they have no other means of getting
purified water,” Mrs King said,

The problem is a repetition” of a situation
that arose in 2003 when government had to
crack down on persons who sold untreated
water to consumers.

At the time, the issue was said to be of seri-
ous concern to the Department of Health and
Environmental Services, which implemented
new rules to address the issue.

Efforts were made to speak to officials from
the Department of Environmental Health yes-
terday, but no one was available to comment
on the issue.

Govt to ‘update
cultural policies

lm By CRYSTAL
JOHNSON-COLLIE

Tribune Staff Reporter

THE government is in the
process of making plans to
“update” the country’s cul-
tural policies according to
director of cultural affairs Dr
Nicolette Bethel.

Dr Bethel explained that
her department is in the
process of developing an
administrative structure for
junkanoo, “which would serve
as a government-based entity
that is expected to have its
own corporate infrastructure.”

Festival

She said this at a press con-
ference to announce that the’
Bahamas has been chosen to
host Carifesta, a roving multi-
disciplinary arts festival that
began in 1972 in Guyana.

It is to be held in the
Bahamas for the first time
ever in 2008,” she said.

Dr Bethel also announced
the relocation of the Cultural
Affairs Office, which was for-
merly located on Thompson
Boulevard, to building D on
the grounds of the former
Ministry of Education head-

quarters on Shirley Street.

According to Dr Bethel, the
Bahamas Carifesta Commit-
tee aims to attract 5,000 for-
eigners to the event.

Senior cultural affairs officer
Dr Patricia Bazard explained
that Carifesta aims to create
opportunities for talented
Bahamians celebrate the arts.

“The Bahamas has so much
to offer. But many times
Bahamians would look at
another country and consider
that country better than ours,”
said Dr Bazard.

She said Bahamians must
realise that there is a great
deal of talent in the country
and that what is needed is a

greater level of involvement

in the arts.

The overall objective. of '

Carifesta is to deepen aware-
ness and knowledge of the
diverse aspirations of
Caribbean people and to fos-
ter a vision of Caribbean uni-
ty.

Dr Bethel said the only dif-
ficulty facing the department
in hosting the event will be
accommodation.

She also stated that when
choosing venues for the event,
they are likely to consider the
most popular Bahamian
islands.

The committee estimated
that Carifesta will cost about
$1 million to host, pointing out
that junkanoo costs the
Bahamas around $2 million
annually.

Dr Bethel encouraged busi-
ness owners and vendors to
take part in the event, which
has the potential to generate a
great deal of revenue.

Performances

Carifesta will involve per-
formances by numerous local
and Caribbean artists and will
be profit-oriented and sub-
contracted to the promoter of
the event. _

Dr Bethel added that Car-

ifesta is an excellent opportu- |

nity for the Bahamas to build
relationships with neighbor-
ing countries.

Dr Anne Peterson-Higgins,
special events coordinator,
said: “I want to encourage our
Bahamians to get involved in
this event, because our little
Bahamas has so much talent
and we have so much to offer
if we just try.”

Persons interested in par-
ticipating in the event are
asked to contact Dr Peterson-
ae at 326-0152.

Mr Miller explained that corporate clients

prefer to go to FBOs ~— which are much like a,

He said that instead of going to govern-

ment-airports, the FBOs offer private jets

special hotel rooms. :

corporate jets because they don’t want to be

Virgin Islands
refinery seeks to
halt payments to
active duty troops

@ CHARLOTTE AMALIE,

U.S. Virgin Islands Oe

A NEW law requiring com-
pariies in the U.S. Virgin
Islands to pay active-duty
National Guard and reserve
troops the difference between
their military pay and private-
sector salaries is already being
contested by one of the.
world's biggest oil refineries,
according to Associated Press.

The Hovensa oil refinery,
owned by the state oil compa-
ny of Venezuela and New
York-based Amerada Hess
Corporation, is suing to strike
down the law, passed by the
island's legislature in Decem-
ber, saying it's unfair and
open-ended.

"There is no reason why a’

' private employer should have

to bear that burden with no

. limitation," Henry Fuerzeig,

an attorney with Hovensa, the
Western Hemisphere's sec-
ond-largest oil refinery, said
Thursday.

But critics of the lawsuit
‘argue the measure is necessary
to sustain families of soldiers
deployed to Iraq, Afghanistan
and elsewhere.

“We don't want our people
losing their homes or having
quality-of-life issues while
away serving their country,"
said Emmett Hansen, U.S.
Virgin Islands director of the
Employer Support of the
Guard and Reserve. os

Hovensa, the U.S. territo-
ry's largest private employer,
sued on July 28 seeking to

stop making up the salary dif-

ference for at least eight
employees serving in the
National Guard.
Many U.S. states offer to
ay public employees the dif-
erence between their federal

"military pay and state pay, and

many large U.S. employers
voluntarily pay the difference,

* seeing it as a matter of patrio-

tism or good business. .

The new law requires large
private employers in the U.S.
Caribbean territory to do the
same. .

Refinery operators say
that's unfair, since the money
comes out of a corporation's
bottom line, while government
agencies rely on taxpayer dol-
lars.

"If you want to compensate,
make it fair," said Fuerzeig.

_ THE TRIBUNE





In brief

FNM ‘united

firmly behind

Edison Key’

_ THE FNM has united
' firmly behind South Aba-
co candidate Edison Key
and expects to sweep to
victory throughout the
island in the general elec-
tion, say party officials.
Though Mr Key was

seen by some as a contro-
versial choice, he now has
the full support of FNMs
on the island, they added.
. “Mr Key is totally com-
mitted to defeating the
PLP and, whether there
are two or three seats on
Abaco for the election,
we’ll win them all,” said
_ Jack Albury, chairman of

’- the FNM’s South Abaco

constituency branch.

’ His prediction came as
FNM workers on Abaco
geared up for a possible
early election.

At one time, former
administrator Everette
Hart was being touted as
a possible FNM candi-
date.

But Mr Albury said Mr
Hart, a personal friend of
his, had never really
wanted to get involved in
politics.

“Edison Key will be
our candidate and MP for
South Abaco. If there are
two seats on the island,
we’ll win them both. If
there are three, then we’ll
win all three.”

Mr Albury predicted
that Mr Key would beat
the PLP by at least 500
votes, whoever was cho-
sen to run against him.
“Edison has brought a
huge following to the
FNM,” he said. “We have
a united front behind
him.-By the time the elec-
tion is called, a very high
percentage of Abaconi-
ans will vote for him.

“What he will bring to
the table will far out-
weigh the few who might -
stay away from the polls.”

Mr Key, a former PLP
stalwart, quit as a senator
to throw his weight
behind the opposition

party.

SURPRISE revelations at
Adelaide Primary School sug-
gest the school may open late
this academic year — due to a

The Tribune learned this
while on a tour of the school,
when contractor ‘Herman

ter of Education Alfred Sears
that he had been forced to use
personal funds to finance some
of the construction.

“T have done all I can do out

Bay Street merchants
‘could lose 20% of
revenue’ due to cruise
ship entering dry dock |

lm KARIN HERIG
Tribune Staff Reporter

BAY Street merchants
estimate that they could lose
up to 20 per cent of their. rev-

enue for two business days:

as the Carnival cruise ship —
which: spilled oil into
Bahamian waters on Tues-
day — was forced to enter dry
dock in Freeport.

-Carnival announced yes-
terday that it has cancelled
the Celebration’s August 21
to 26 cruise so the ship can

_ be repaired.

Oil

The Celebration — which
docks in Nassau twice week-
ly — spilled 53 gallons of
lubricating oil after damag-
ing two-engines during a

failed attempt to berth at
. Prince George Dock.

Although Carnival Cruise
Lines first announced that
the ship would be able to
immediately resume opera-

tions, it now said that the’

extent of damage to the ves-
sel was greater than antici-
pated.

Following this announce-
ment, Bay Street merchants
are now concerned
that it will mean a significant
hit to their revenue in-
take.

“That is a bread-and-but-

ae

ter ship for us. It makes up
for about 15 to 20 per cent of
our business,” one store
owner told The Tribune yes-

soa Sys od
PHO ANS

Business

With. the Celebration
expected not to able to con-
tinue regular operations until
August 26, Nassau will lose
out on two days. of business
from cruise ship passengers.

“We will lose. a Saturday
and a Thursday. Two days of
business, that is very signifi-
cant,” said one shop owner.

After the Celebration’s
propeller hit the ground dur-
ing the docking procedure
earlier this week, the. ship's
scheduled call into Nassau
was immediately cancelled,
and passengers onboard dur-
ing the incident were offered
a $100 shipboard credit and a

ag

‘25 per cent discount on

future three- to seven-day
cruises through December
13, 2007.

A Carnival spokesman

‘said the company expects to

have the Celebration back in:
the water in time for its
August 26 to 31 cruise.

. The Ministry of Transport
said that in the preliminary
reports conducted by the
Royal Bahamas Defence
Force, it was revealed that
the spill was “minimal” and

bished; 30 of those according
to Mr Sturrup are getting

“major repairs”.

These projects will cost $17
million collectively.

T G Glover High is among
the schools that are being
repaired, an will be complete-
ly reconstructed — at a cost of
$10 million. This institution,
Mr Sturrup said, will accom-
modate 800 students.

The tour was one in a series
of exercises that the Ministry
of Education has been under-
taking to look at the progress
of all the schools being refur-
bished, repaired or built in
New Providence and the Fam-
ily Islands.

Surprise test for explosives liquids

SCIENTISTS and engineers at the Pacific

’ Northwest National Laboratory in Richland

have created a device that they say could be
used to rapidly and accurately identify any
suspicious liquids carried on board by air-
plane passengers.

The device, which uses ultrasound, can
even tell the difference between Coke and

Diet Coke. Despite the fact that the research —

was done at a national lab, the device’s exis-
tence appears to have come as news to many
officials at the Department of Homeland
Security and Transportation Security Admin-
istration.

Ever since British authorities announced
they had thwarted a terrorist plot to use dis-
guised liquid explosives on airplanes, spokes-
people forthe federal agencies have repeat-
edly said there is no “operationally viable” or

“feasible” technological way today to rapid-
ly and routinely screen for liquid explosives at .

airports.
Aaron Diaz, a physicist at the Richland

lab, respectfully disagrees.
“We’re making these measurements in
about three to four seconds, but I think we

could get it down to one or two,” said Diaz, .
who led the lab’s effort to develop its patent

pending HAZAID (Hazardous Material
Acoustic Inspection Device).
“We've been getting barraged with calls
about this for the last week,” he said. Some of
those calls have been with Homeland Security
officials anxious to learn more, Diaz said.
“It’s‘very coincidental that this (terror plot)
would come just as we were wrapping the
project up,” he said. TSA officials had been
aware of an earlier, similar prototype the lab

developed years ago, Diaz said, but there

hadn’t been any urgent official interest in
their new-and-improved liquid explosive
detector until last week., ;

“The earlier unit was designed for large
volume containers, based on U.S. Customs
work at:the borders,” said Diaz. “We realized
years ago there was going to be a need for
looking at very small containers.”

The device uses sound waves to precisely

identify liquids. An earlier, larger version of -

this acoustic inspection device was created
in the early 1990s at the Richland lab for
chemical weapons inspections after the 1991
Gulf War. The national lab today trains bor-
der guards from many countries in the use of
this technology as part of an international
treaty prohibiting chemical weapons traf-
ficking. . 8 .

Diaz, working with his team of PNNL sci-
entists, engineers and software programmers,
years ago set out to modify this technology so
it could be used on smaller containers. For
use in airports, he knew the device had to
provide rapid and accurate identification of

liquids contained in almost any kind of mate-
rial.

“We completely redesigned the thing,” he
said. His team had to modify the electronics,
alter the nature of the sound waves and re-
programme the software to increase its sen-

" sitivity.

Unlike the older units, Diaz said, the HAZ-
AID measures both the speed of sound waves
travelling through liquid and the attenuation
— how the waves are altered as they travel.

“This really increases our measurement
sensitivity,“ Diaz said.

But one of the complaints transportation
officials have had with earlier detection meth-
ods is a lack: of specificity — too many false
alarms. — eee ‘

Amy Kudwa, a spokeswoman for TSA,
said in response to media inquiries last week
that it is the high error rate of many of these
new detection technologies. that has pre-
vented the agency from putting them into
wide use. ;

Critics noted, however, that the highly
dubious effectiveness of an airport screen-
ing technique known as “behaviour obser-
vation” didn’t prevent TSA from putting it
into use at a dozen airports. The agency now
has “behaviour detection officers“ who look
for facial features or mannerisms some psy-
chologists believe involuntarily reveal people
up to no good.

Not everyone is convinced the approach '
will ever be viable as a tool for airport screen-
ing. Some members of Congress have said

' they are concerned TSA has emphasized

funding personnel increases while cutting
back on technological developments. .

A 2004 Government Accountability Office
report noted that the agency, in 2003, trans-
ferred more than half of its $110 million
research budget to cover personnel costs.
This directly undermined research projects,
the GAO reported, that were dedicated to
developing new technologies that could,
“detect weapons, liquid explosives and flam-
mables in carry-on luggage or passengers’

~ effects .”

Diaz and his team at PNNL, fortunately,
were not dependent on TSA funding for
development of HAZAID. They won’t reveal

"yet who the client is for the device, but the lab

routinely works on contract for commercial

‘interests to develop new products. The patent

that was filed for HAZAJID is held by the pri-
vate Battelle Memorial Institute.

Diaz said he believes the new device is
nearly ready for prime time, though it may
need to go through more testing to convince
officials that it is highly unlikely to produce
many false alarms.

EDITOR, The Tribune.
THIS past August Monday
weekend, Bahamians cele-
brated that special and histor-
ical day of Emancipation
throughout the Common-
wealth of the Bahamas. After
more than three hundred
years of suffering under the
shackles of slavery, by a Roy-
al proclamation, Queen Vic-
toria ended one of the most
evil chapters in the history of
colonialism. Millions of
Africans had been stolen
from Africa for the purpose
of being sold into slavery in
the colonies. Their basic
human rights and dignity were
taken away. Their lives were
physically controlled with oth-
ers dictating their behaviour.
Emancipation was supposed
to mark the beginning of a
new dawn of liberation in
what is referred to’ as a
civilised world. The former
African slave was “free” and
thus responsible for the
moulding of his own destiny.
The sky was the limit and the
only limit was his imagination.
However, physical slavery was
réplaced by an even greater
and more sinister menace, one

that had no regards for race, »

creed, colour or religion. This
was the concept of mental
slavery. By controlling your
mind and thoughts, an oppres-
sor could abuse and degrade

~ you without any physical

infliction. Psychological scars
are slow to heal and can be
just as painful many years lat-
er as the day they were inflict-
ed. The great reggae legend
Bob Marley sang, “Emanci-
pate yourselves from mental

-slavery...none but ourselves

can free our minds!”. Amaz-
ingly, after 172 years since the
original day of Emancipation,

' far too many of us are still vic-

tims of mental slavery.

_ ,»,Mental slavery has empow-
‘“éred corrupt and misdirected

leaders over the years. By
brainwashing a nation, a “wut-
less” government can get
away with the most barbaric
and demented acts. By ‘skil-
fully controlling the people
with only providing them with
a selective amount of infor-
mation always results in social
disaster and disorder for that
nation. Oftentimes, the nation
pays a terrible price for such
ignorancé, with those exploit-
ing-the masses, abusing both
their privileges and public

trust. Supported by persons. -
. who would believe without

question what is said and done
by those in power who take
advantage of such an unjust
system has been directly
responsible for some of the
worst atrocities in modern
times. Just look at the Red
Tide that swept through China
under Mao Tse-tung when
millions were killed when pro-
moting an ideology that could-
n’t be questioned.

Efforts to eliminate, if not
control men, came out of the
ashes of the holocaust after
World War II. With a com-

mitment of “Never Again”,

the new body called the Unit-
ed Nations, formed in the

-postwar era to unite the

nations of the world, con-
ceived a document to prevent
such world disorders and dis-
asters in an effort to save
mankind from itself. That doc-

ument was named “The Uni- -

versal Declaration of Human
Rights!” One of the most fun-
damental provisions of the
Declaration to promote world
peace and understanding is
the one of freedom of expres-
sion. Anyone has the right to
express their opinion against
any institution or government
without fear or favour.
Whether or not you like what
was being said, doesn’t give
you the right to prevent what

- was being said. You cannot

punish someone for what is
going on in their head!

So important was this pro-
vision of the Declaration, that
many countries, including the
Bahamas, has adopted it as a
part of their Constitution or
the supreme authority of that
country. With Freedom of
Expression enshrined in the
Constitution, democracy will
flourish in that country. Any
effort by any authority or
institution to limit or curtail
such protection must be met
with a ‘determined vigilance.
This is something that under
any circumstances must never

‘be compromised. Journalists,

members of the Opposition
and the average citizen must
be afforded the right to criti-

‘cise the government of the
day or any institution in his‘

country.

> Regrettably, too many lead-
ers have blatantly and per-
versely disregarded this criti-
cal provision of the Declara-
tion by penalising and crimi-

nalising those who try to crit--

icise or promote an opinion
contrary to the status quo.
Journalists and persons who
dared to speak out against the
government soon discovered
that there was a ‘high price
and in some cases the ultimate
price to pay for exercising this
basic human right.

The classic case in the
Bahamas is that of Lionel
Dorsett who was dragged
before the courts and charged
with the offence of “criminal
libel.” For having made.a
statement questioning the
integrity of Prime Minister
Lynden Pindling, he was
threatened with seven years
imprisonment without the
possibility of parole. —

The 1991 Election Petition
Act forbidding the Bahamas
to discuss
Bahamian political opinion
from abroad was another
gross and blatant violation of

the Bahamian Constitution by | -

the government of the day in

or broadcast.

its evil attempt to prevent per-
sons from freely expressing

. themselves.

Recently, in Cuba, a neigh-
bour of the Bahamas, some
journalists were given as many
as 30 years in prison for pub-
lications contrary to the estab- .
lishment. This is so wrong and
it only serves as a tool of
intimidation and oppression. .
How any country, including: ' ’
the Bahamas, could support a
country such as Cuba to serve
on the United Nations Human

Rights Council is beyond any...

reasonable comprehension.

times, the Press has. been

Turnquest urges
students living

for next election

Tribune Staff Reporter

IN AN effort to boost voter registration, FNM Senator
Tommy Turnquest is urging students who live abroad to
register in time for the next general election.

Slogans like “Rock the Vote” may soon be heard in the
streets, as Senator Turnquest hopes to approach the coun-
try’s young voters in a new and aggressive way.

The number of persons who have registered for the next
election is still low — at last count only 71,000 had signed up
— and Senator Turnquest said he hopes to encourage more
Bahamians to exercise their right to vote, especially uni-

Ss.

He pointed out, however, that the reluctance on the part
of young people to involve themselves in the political

an apparent worldwide apathy for politics among young

people. Perhaps a similar effort by influential young per-

Mr Turnquest said that the large number of Bahamians

“I am encouraging young Bahamians at-home and those
living and studying abroad to register to vote. They will
inherit this great nation, and it is their duty and right as a
citizen of this country to vote to assure that the best party
will be in place to make the best.decisions on their behalf,”

he said.

“We hope that they exercise their right to vote and

that when many of our students return home, they bemoan
the lack of suitable jobs and opportunities — a situation
that we in the FNM will address once elected.

Military jail director |

Hi CARACAS, Venezuela

THE director of a Venezue-
lan military jail was under
investigation Friday in con-
nection with the high-profile
escape of four convicts,
including a key foe of Presi-
dent Hugo Chavez, according
to Associated Press.

Col. Gustavo Busnego,
director of the Ramo Verde

porarily removed from his
position and summoned to

_ testify to a military court, said
Gen. Carlos Acosta Perez,
chief of the armed forces gen-
eral staff.

Prominent labor union
leader Carlos Ortega and
three convicted ex-military
officers escaped from the jail
last weekend. Officials say the
four fugitives may have fled
to the Caribbean islands of

Aruba and Curacao.

A low-ranking National
Guard member working as a
prison guard at the time has
been detained as a primary
suspect, and 14 other mem-
bers of the military are also
being investigated.

Ortega, 60, led a crippling
national strike in 2002-2003
aimed at ousting Chavez's
government and was serving a
16-year sentence for civil
rebellion.

Two of the three ex-mili-
tary officers were serving
nine-year terms for military
rebellion in connection with
an alleged plot by Colombian
paramilitaries to assassinate
Chavez.

The third was arrested for
theft in 2005 after a military
assault rifle was found hidden
in his car's fender. All three
maintained their innocence.

MOVIE
REVIEW

PULSE
Starring: Kristen Bell,
Ian Somerhalder,
Christina Milian

I’M TIRED of movie
ghosts. I’m tired of watching
them clawing at frosted glass,
appearing as grainy images
on computer screens, and
doing that once-was-creepy

_ stop-motion walking thing.

And, after suffering
through Pulse, I’m even tired
of them crawling out of
washing machines.

You’d think it would be
impossible for a film that
starts out as teen horror,
morphs into a_hit-tech
“thriller” and ends as an
apocalyptic drama, to be
dull. But, somehow, Pulse
manages it.

The story centres ona.

group of teens investigating
the mysterious suicide of one

of their friends. We know |

something spooky happened
to him beforehand — thanks
to an opening sequence
which is strangely reminis-
cent of Ghostbusters — but
they don’t, and their investi-
gations soon lead them to a
supernatural website.
Before you can stifle a
yawn, the plot then takes a
huge leap into incomprehen-

sible territory, involving a
mysterious virus, the end of
the civilisation: and ghosts all
over the place. Rubbish
ghosts that is — this bunch
couldn’t be more cliched if

they were wearing sheets |
, with eyeholes. In fact, the

“creepy” bits are like a
greatest hits reel from all the

recent remakes of Japanese
horror films.

To be fair, there is a good
idea in here trying to get out.

The suggestion that the’

undead may take advantage
of our reliance on technology
is an intriguing one and per-
haps the original Japanese
version of the movie (enti-
tled ‘Kairo’) made more
sense.

But Pulse is just too mud-
dled, murky and boring —
and ‘that’s even with a zom-
bie in a washing machine.

No, the. title is not a clever



metaphor, it refers to exact-
ly what you can expect to see
in this one.

But these CGI snakes

strapped in and ordering

‘Instead they’re jumping in
people’s faces and causing
, general mayhem, judging by
the previews.

This looks like it dould be
the cheesefest to end all
cheesefests, but with Samuel

lukewarm early reviews,
maybe it will turn out to be a
guilty pleasure.

At least you'll get what

contract will |
‘go to tender
in 10 days’

i By KAHMILE REID

THE CONTRACT for
the Lowe Sound High
School in North Andros will
go to tender in 10 days
according to Copeland
Moxey, senior architect at
the Ministry of Works.

He told The Tribune on
Tuesday that the construc-

tion of this new high school

is in accordance with the
directions given to the Min-
istry of Education Science
and Technology by the
Cabinet: “to undertake a
systematic overhaul of the
educational intrastructure
‘in Andros.”

*."Mr Moxey, who is also
the co-ordinator of the pro-
ject — which is geared
toward the modernisation
of all the schools in Andros
~ said the school will be
built on 12 acres of land.

Aside from the actual
school buildings, he said,
there will be several physi-
cal education facilities,
including a softball field,
volleyball.and netball
courts, and track and field
facilities.

The institution, according
to Mr Moxey,,will have the
capacity to accommodate
-1,400 students.

The construction period
for this school is thought to
be 18 months, he added.
*."-Mr Moxey said he was

‘unable to confirm the price
tag for the project.

Lowe Sound High is one
of: 10 schools that are being
refurbished in Andros at a,
collective cost of $6 million.

A team from the Ministry
of Education toured
Andros on Tuesday, then
travelled to Bimini on
Wednesday to evaluate the
- progress of school repairs
on that island.

They are set to visit
Eleuthera and Abaco, on
Monday and Wednesday
respectively, to look at
the progress of repairs
there.

“I feel great to be the first

He noted that the develop-

in the 21st century has made
it possible for visually

“There are great possibili-

Mr Hanna is well-known
for his work for the blind in
New Providence and Grand

He believes that more
needs to be done for the
blind in the Bahamas.

“We need the facilities

here to upgrade the standard.
. of education for the blind to

further their vocational train-
ing,” he said.

Despite his disability, Han-
na worked as a switchboard

EDNESDAY,
April 24, 1984 saw

> demonstrations in favour of

bringing in the option of cor-
poral punishment as a penalty
for rape. Now attorney gener-
al, but then co-chair of the
Citizens for a Better Bahamas
Committee Allyson Maynard-
Gibson, brought together
hundreds of Bahamians who
felt strongly that not enough
was being done to deter
rapists, or give women incen-

-. tives to report them — in light

of steadily increasing rape
rates over previous years. Mrs
Maynard-Gibson and co-chair
Mrs Janet Bostwick
“favoured the cat” — that is,
the cat-o-nine tails, as punish-
ment for rape. Currently, the
situation remains that "the
cat" is on the books in the
Bahamas, but is not applied
as a sentence.









& A GROUNDSWELL of support: Despite the pleas by Mrs Janet Boswick MP (pictured front,
centre) that others did not join her due to the risk of arrest, the number of people marching with her
along East Street in the early part of the morning towards parliament grew. The popular support for .
the amendment to the Jaw was substantial.

m@ A MASS MOVEMENT: later that day the anti-rape protesters congregated at the South-
ern recreation ground, waving placards. The issue brought Bahamians from all sectors of society
together in the biggest demonstration to take place in Nassau in years.

































m@ ABOVE: TO THE POINT:

Mrs Janet Bostwick, co-chairman of
CBB emphatically urged Bahami-
ans to inform their political repre-
sentatives that they want judges to

be able to punish.

Mf LEFT: UNITED Against
Rape: As co-chairman of the Con- ,
cerned Citizens for a Better

the historic march on Wednesday
April 4, 1984 demanding heavier
penalties for rapists.

From the beginning, Ms
Farquharson tried to have
the trial into the murders
of Robins and the four

_Grand Bahama boys
‘.joined as one.

It was her argument
that these murders were .
all a part of a series of
events that attested to the
accused man’s psychosis.
Justice Anita Allen, how-
ever, ruled that Farring-
ton had to stand separate
trials. 5

Ms Farquharson then
took her argument to the
Court of Appeal, but was
unsuccessful in having” :
Justice Allen’s’ ruling
overturned.”

The prosecution has
maintained that Farring-
ton was not crazy and
knew right from wrong
when he murdered 22-
year-old, Robins.

Its case was that he had
murdered ie in cold

Coroner Virgill said the eh acripis of that inquest are almost
complete. However her secretary, who is compiling, copying and
stapling several copies of the transcript of some eight weeks of
witness testimony, was on vacation. The coroner also noted that
some 10 different court reporters were attached to the court at
various stages in the inquest and that all of their reports had to
be submitted. Most of these reports, she said, had been sub-
mitted. However, two are still outstanding.

i. aright to petition the court, she argued that Mackey’s lawyers
: knew that the transcripts would take.a considerable amount of

| time to complete.

“Equip me with the people and machines that work,” Mrs
Virgill bluntly stated. “I can’t compile these things; they know

that.”

The programme, which
comes under the Urban
Renewal project, started on
July 20. It was held} daily at
Claridge Primary, CR Walker
High, Sandilands, Queen Eliz-
abeth Sports Centre, and
Kendal G'L Isaacs Gym.

Mrs Hepburn said that about
2,000 students were hired, in
addition to teachers who were
_ taken on to supervise the teen
students.

“This is their first year do
it, and they don’t want the te
to be known so that they can
. bring it off on their own for
everyone to give them credit,”
she said.

“But this is not important

right now because high-school-:

ers who participated need their
monies for school, and college
students need to be paid to
take care of their tuition,” she
said. |

Mrs Hepburn suggested that
government could not have

‘ allocated $1.8 million for the

programme as announced by

Minister Wisdom or else there -
» would have been no difficulty

in paying the workers.
She said the programme is in

_ its third year. For the two pre-'
- vious years it was spearheaded

by the Ministry of Youth and
Culture.

“Now it is under the Ministry
of Youth and Housing, but
Housing takes a majority of the
load since the Prime Minister
switched up the Ministries in
cabinet.

“Some of the student work-
ers went down to the Ministry
yesterday to get their monies,
but Oral LaFleur, the director
of the programme, was not

there.”

Mrs Hepburn said she called
Mr LaFleur once on the matter,
but “he didn’t really give an

‘answer, and kept passing me
on to other people.”
’ She explained that other
workers who participated in the .

programme have made numer-
ous unsuccessful attempts to
contact Mr LaFleur.

“When I called, I didn’t get
through, and when I tried again
they said no one was in the
office to speak with me. I was
told that most of the other
workers had already made
plans to go away before the
programme ended.”

rks & Caicos’ first premier

By FRANKLYN G FERGUSON



ONCE there was a greater Bahamas and per-
haps, in our own lifetime, the Bahamas will be
greater again. Up to 1838, the Turks and Caicos
Islands were a part of the Bahamas.

They were represented by Horatio N. Chipman
and John McIntosh, who in 1836 petitioned the |
House of Assembly in Nassau claiming the
nation, with salt as one of its major industries, was
being treated poorly by the then government
here.

The Turks and Caicos were annexed to
Jamaica in 1847, then, after that country’s inde-
pendence in 1962, the Turks and Caicos had an
association with the Bahamas for over a decade
until it became a British Crown Colony. -

And, on August 9th, 2006, Turks and Caicos
swore in its first Premier, Dr Michael E Misick.
Special guests at the occasion included Dr Den-
zil L Douglas, Prime Minister of St Kitts & Nevis
and Chairman of CARICOM.

THE Bahamas Olympic Association

' put an extra $5,000 into the kitty for the

Bahamas Volleyball Federation’s host-

- ing of the Caribbean Volleyball Cham-
pionships.

The presentation was made on Friday

: in the office of BOA president Arlington
Butler as the championship’s opening on
Sunday draws closer and the federation
aims for its projected target of $200,000.
' “Weare pleased to be able to assist
the. volleyball federation in bringing.
about this tournament, which we are
pleased they brought here because this
will not only provide an opportunity for
our players to improve their skills, but it
will be a worthwhile tournament for the
Bahamian people to watch,” Butler
charged.

“For that reason, we have made a pre-

‘sentation to the volleyball federation,
which we normally do for these various
functions. We are indeed happy that you
will be able to put this on.”

_ Federation president Don Cornish said
every step they make in putting a dent in
their projected expenditure is progress.

“Obviously starting very late didn’t
help us, so we are a little ways off from
meeting our financial obligations,” Cor-
nish revealed. “But we are very pleased
that the Olympic Association is providing
us with some of that support.”

Cornish said they are still appealing to
corporate Bahamas to come forth and
make their financial contribution and for
the Bahamian people to come out and
view the championships that start on Sun-
day night at the Kendal Isaacs Gym so
they can meet their obligations when they
are concluded on Sunday, August 26.

future ahead of her in
track and field.

“When I finished the
race, I was kind of disap-
pointed that I was eighth,
but the coaches told me
that I am still young, so I
shouldn’t feel that bad,”
said Ferguson in an inter-
view with The Tribune
from Beijing yesterday.

Coming off her semifi-
nal appearance in the 100
on the first day of compe-
tition, Ferguson became
the second Bahamian to
make it to a final at the
championships. _

She ran 24.03 seconds
last night for eighth.

The gold went to
Tezdzhan Naimova of
Bulgaria in a personal
best of 22.99 with Vanda
Gomes of Brazil taking
the silver in a season’s
best of 23.59 and Ewelina
Klocek of Poland captur-
ing the bronze in 23.63.

“I got off the curve and
I just went for it,” said
Ferguson, who admitted
that she was right in the
race for the first 100.
“Coming to the end, I
think in the last 50, I felt
I didn’t have any more to

’ give.”

Ferguson said she will
chalk this up as a learn-
ing experience:

’ “Pm very proud. ’m
happy. I’m only 15,” she
reflected. “To make it to
the semifinal and the

_ final is a great achieve--

"+ ment for me.”

As for the competition,
Ferguson said it was
extremely tough.

_ “T didn’t know that it

.. «was going to be as tough

- as it was,” she stressed. -
“But now I know what I
have to do when I come
home. I have to work
harder to get my time
_ 7.7 faster.”
'."-". Before she comes
home, Ferguson will run
on the women’s 4. x.100
__ relay team. During the |
‘interview, neither Fergu-
-"-’son or team manager
Rosie Carey could say
how the team will be set
up. - ;
_. But Ferguson said she’s
.- confident that they
-.- should go out and make
the final on Sunday. The
Bahamas ran out of lane
five in the second of
three heats. The United
States is in lane four and
Great Britain in six.
.) The first two finishers
plus the next two fastest
times will advance to the
final.
T’Shonda Webb, who
ran in the preliminaries
of the women’s 100, was
also expected to compete
on the team. She went.a
little further than Fergu-
son in her predictions.

“This is an awesome
group of girls,” she stat-
ed. “We are going for the
gold. I’m looking forward
to running on the team.
We feel we can win a
medal.”

The men’s 4 x 400 team
also ran in the prelimi-
naries yesterday. They
were in lane one in the
first of three heats with
France in two and the
United States in three.

The first two in each
heat plus the next two
fastest times will advance
to Sunday’s final.

Carey said with all of
the individual perfor-
mances complete, they
are now focussing on the
two relays.

She indicated that all of
the athletes are eager to
compete.

sure everyone
— isa part of
the process"

m@ By BRENT STUBBS
Senior Sports Reporter

ONE of the most difficult tasks of
hosting an event like the Caribbean Vol-
leyball Championships is to make sure
that everybody is properly accredited.

Renee ‘Sunshine’ Curry has been giv-
en that responsibility by the Bahamas
Volleyball Federation and she noted
that it’s a job that has kept.her standing
on her feet.

“Basically, we’ve been having people
coming out in droves to be accredited,”
said Curry, who took a break from pho-
tographing a few people for the inter-
view this week at the Kendal Isaacs
Gymnasium. .

While Curry has had to photograph
the Bahamian teams, dignitaries and
volunteers as they show up, the visit-
ing teams have been emailing their pho-

tos, which will alleviate the long lines

when they arrive in town this weekend.

Curry said that has made it even eas-. -

ier for her to have everybody processed
in time for the start of the champi-
onships on Sunday night.

“Even though we will be at the hotel

makes

that we have everything set up for
them,” said Curry, about the processing
of the visiting teams. :

As for the local personnel to be
processed, Curry said she’s at the gym
almost all day and even through the
evening taking their photographs as
they show up.

Up to the time of the interview, Cur-
ry said she had already processed 250
people. She couldn’t give a final count
of just how many she will have to
accredit. °

But she noted that as fast as they walk
into the press centre in the secretariat at
the gym, she will snap their photos and
they will be on their way out.

“Tt’s not a long process once they get
in,” she said. “The longest they will ©
probably have to wait is on the line out-
side and that’s just because we can only
accommodate one at‘a time in the
room,” she summed up.

Curry, a member of: the defending
national ladies softball champions Elec-
tro Telecom Wildcats, has taken the
entire month off from her job at the
Ministry of Youth, Sports and Culture -
to assist the federation in the accredi-
tation process.

Crystal shines in her

tough job at the CVC

‘@ By BRENT STUBBS

Senior Sports Reporter

SHE’S working as the
brain behind the scenes for
the Caribbean: Volleyball
Federation. But her tough
job is something that Crys-
tal Forbes accepted when she
became the secretary of the
Bahamas Volleyball Feder-
ation,

‘As manager of the games
secretariat, Forbes can be

_seen on a daily basis sitting

behind her desk in her office
at the Kendal Isaacs Gym-
nasium ensuring that all of
the letters are typed and sent
out and the necessary. data
are put into the computer.
It’s a job that has Forbes
working around the clock
since the federation agreed
to host the championships,

which kick off on Sunday. -
“My job entails coordinat-. -

ing all aspects of these

games, from the tournament "

set up, to volunteers, to help-
ing in the gym, helping in the
concession, helping in the
festival that will be held out-
side to even telling people
where to park,” she stated.
“It’s just been crazy.”
Despite the workload that
has been placed in her lap,
Forbes said her main objec-
tive is to remain cool, calm

and collected, advice she has |

been taught all her life, even
in tough situations.

“When I go home at night,
I dream about this place and
when I wake up at 6am, IJ
wake up with the intent of
getting here at 7:30, but I get
here between 8-9 to do the
little things I can do before
the people start coming in
and the phone ringing,” she
stated.

“Somehow, through the
grace of God, I get through.
Thank God. I get things
done. Unbelievably.”

However, with the days
winding down to the start of
the tournament on Sunday,
Forbes said she doesn’t
expect her workload to get
any easier. ,

“T expect my job to get



ml HARD AT WORK:
Crystal Forbes

harder because I’m in charge
of the statisticians and I’m
in charge of the scorers,” she
further pointed out. “So I
will have to leave this job
and moving towards helping
them.

“Right now, Kirk Far-

‘quharson is helping them.
He’s our head official. He’s .

training the statisticians and
scorers. Once his job is done,
I have to take over and coor-
dinate them when the tour-
nament start.”

From day one, Forbes said
she’s been under a lot of
pressure, but people have
been popping in from time
to time assisting her, so it has
made her job a little easier.

Forbes, however, said she’s
excited about the tourna-
ment because, as a volleyball
player, she will enjoy watch-
ing the high level of compe-
tition during the week, long
session.

The bidding:
South ‘West. . North East
3 NT Pass Pass. . Pass

Opening lead — jack of spades.
Bridge is a game:of probabilities:
You make a certain bid because you
think it has a better chance to suc-
ceed than any other bid. You make a

certain play because you think it is —

more likely to work than any other
play.

But a probability, by definition,
is not'a certainty. All you can do in
bridge is rely on the percentages and
hope for the best. You may be wrong
in a particular case if you follow the
percentages, but. in the long run
you'll be right more often than

wrong.
All. of which leads us to this deal,
which is strictly a matter of percent-

ages. Let’s say you win the spade
lead with the king and play the king
of hearts. West takes the ace and
retums a spade, which you win with
the ace.

You have eight certain tricks and

two- ways to try for a ninth. You can
enter dummy with a diamond and
take a club finesse. If the jack wins,
you are home free. You have about a
50-50 chance of making the contract
this way, but in the actual. deal this
approach would fail.

The alternate line of play is to

cash the A-K of clubs and continue
with the jack. This method will suc-

ceed if the clubs are divided 3-3 or if

either the queen. or ten falls as the A-:
K are led. The diamond king pro-
vides the entry to dummy if the nine
of clubs becomes a trick.

Some knowledge of percentages
is required to know which of the two

lines of play has the greater chance. .

of success.

The second approach is much
better. The clubs will break 3-3 about
36 percent of the time, while a
singleton or doubleton queen or ten
will occur in-approximately one deal
out of three...

The combined chance of finding
the clubs 3-3 or otherwise favorably
divided comes to about 70 percent —
20 percent better than the finesse.
Playing the A-K-J of clubs is there-
fore the superior ‘line of play, and
succeeds in the actual deal.

Two American amateurs
reached this tricky position
during a game in Ohio in 1993.
Black (to play) is a pawn down,
but has plenty of compensation
with all his pieces poised to
invade the white defences. He
has to be careful, though, since
White's own rook and knight
are entrenched deep in black
territory. Black narrowed down
his selection to Qd2 and Nd2,
not realising that one move
wins while the other loses.
Unable to decide between
them, he mentally tossed a
coin, and made the wrong
choice. Can you do better, and
demonstrate which move
scores the point and which is a
blunder?

Unanimous
verdict over
murder of

@ By NATARIO McKENZIE

‘4 AFTER a month of star-

‘tling and at times emotional
testimony;.a jury of eight men
and four women found

_-, Cordell Farrington guilty of .
: the murder of 22-year-old

- Jamal Robins.
The decision was unani-
mous, 12-0. When the verdict

‘+. was read family members of
*- the deceased were elated.
'»Some burst into tears, strug-

gling to maintain their com-
_.posure as the judge continued
- the proceedings.

Emotional

Outside the courtroom,

-!Jamal Robins' parents, who
~had been emotional through-

out the trial, expressed their
relief that it was over and
praised the prosecution for its
work. Jamal's parents said
they were happy with the ver-
dict and that when their son's
remains are turned over to
them, they will take them back
to Freeport for a proper bur-

jal.

"Iam very happy with the

“verdict, justice has been
-" served and now my son can

rest. I can now give him a
proper Christian burial and

-..:.have my. mind at ease,"
-1-"-1-Edward Robins,
'.".*- “father said yesterday. "That’s

Jamal's

my only son, he and I were
very close until somehow he

ie drifted off and I lost control

of him," he said. Mr Robins

called for Farrington to face

the gallows. :
"I want to see him hang
because he showed no mer-

-cy," he said.

An emotional Christine

“-. Scott accused Farrington of

‘intentionally "playing crazy."
Mrs Scott said that she would

_. probably be attending the tri-

al or trials into the deaths of

" the four Grand Bahama boys.

"It's because through me
that they found those boys,"

she said. "I was searching, I -

contacted him (Cordell) and
he came and said that he was
going to help me find my child

. ‘because I know he was the last
‘+ person I saw with my Jamal.

‘So he was the one that I was
supposed to look. for to find
Jamal," she said.

Prosecutors will not say if
they plan to have Farrington

. face separate trials into the
‘ murders of each of the, four

Jamal Robins

Grand Bahama boys. Deputy
director of public prosecutions
Cheryl Grant-Bethel said that

within the next three months:

the prosecution plats to start
those proceedings. A sentenc-
ing hearing for Farrington's
conviction for the murder of
Robins has been scheduled for
September 11 at 2.30 pm.
Following the verdict, Far-
rington had been asked if he

‘had anything to say. He told

the court, "I turned myself in
to police because I knew I
committed a crime," (the rest
was incoherent). Farrington
was whisked away from Bank
Lane in an unmarked police

vehicle after he was escorted '

out of court yesterday.
Throughout the month-long
trial, jurors heard testimony
from thirty-two witnesses,
including those who knew the
accused, police investigators,
forensic experts, psychiatrists
as well as the accused man

who earlier this week gave an’
‘unworn statement from the’

prisoner’s dock. Farrington
was charged in Grand
Bahama in October 2003 with
Robins' murder. He was also
charged with the murders of
four Grand Bahama boys.

The case went to the jury
around 12.30pm yesterday. Ii
was after 3.30pm when they
returned to the courtroom
with a guilty verdict.

Jury

In her summation of the
case, Justice Anita Allen
reminded the jurors of the
oath that they had taken when
they were impanelled, which
was to return a true verdict
based on the facts. She told
the jury that they were the
judges of the facts and could
choose to accept or refuse any
evidence or testimony that
had been presented to them.
_ In Farrington’s defence, Ms
Farquharson had argued that
the accused man suffered from

“abnormality of mind” at
the time he murdered Robins.

She leaned heavily on the tes- —
timony of psychiatrist Dr.

Michael Neville. She had

Thousands yet to be paid

a By REUBEN SHEARER

THOUSANDS of students
and adult employees have yet
to be paid despite what Youth
and Housing Minister Neville
Wisdom promised.

The buzz about the mass
employment programme,
launched to revolutionise the

Bahamians has now turned into
anger for some waiting for their
pay.

An inside source at the Sum-
mer Youth Experience Pro-
gramme told The Tribune that
Youth Minister Neville Wisdom
announced twice that $1.8 mil-
lion was allocated by govern-
ment to defray the cost of youth

‘programmes.

According to Judith Hep-
burn, an adult counsellor for
the camp at CR Walker High
School, it has been four days
since she and others were
promised their pay at the end of
the programme: However, she

Polluted water distribution ‘has to be addressed’

& By CRYSTAL JOHNSON-COLLIE
Tribune Staff Reporter

ANGRY Nassau residents claim they con-
tinue to suffer at the hands of persons who
distribute polluted water to consumers.

Several persons have told The Tribune that
this is a common practice and has to be
addressed because of the health problems
involved.

Angela King said she purchased a five-gallon
bottle of water that had paint and debris inside.

She said that when she opened the bottle a
foul smell was released.

She called on health officials to stop persons
who pretend to sell purified water, but instead
fill bottles with well water.

“Suppose I was a blind person and could not

have seen what was at the bottom of that bot-
tle, I would have drank that water and given it
to my small children. | am aware of so many
elderly people who have gotten use to this
because they have no other means of getting
purified water,” Mrs King said,

The problem is a repetition” of a situation
that arose in 2003 when government had to
crack down on persons who sold untreated
water to consumers.

At the time, the issue was said to be of seri-
ous concern to the Department of Health and
Environmental Services, which implemented
new rules to address the issue.

Efforts were made to speak to officials from
the Department of Environmental Health yes-
terday, but no one was available to comment
on the issue.

Govt to ‘update
cultural policies

lm By CRYSTAL
JOHNSON-COLLIE

Tribune Staff Reporter

THE government is in the
process of making plans to
“update” the country’s cul-
tural policies according to
director of cultural affairs Dr
Nicolette Bethel.

Dr Bethel explained that
her department is in the
process of developing an
administrative structure for
junkanoo, “which would serve
as a government-based entity
that is expected to have its
own corporate infrastructure.”

Festival

She said this at a press con-
ference to announce that the’
Bahamas has been chosen to
host Carifesta, a roving multi-
disciplinary arts festival that
began in 1972 in Guyana.

It is to be held in the
Bahamas for the first time
ever in 2008,” she said.

Dr Bethel also announced
the relocation of the Cultural
Affairs Office, which was for-
merly located on Thompson
Boulevard, to building D on
the grounds of the former
Ministry of Education head-

quarters on Shirley Street.

According to Dr Bethel, the
Bahamas Carifesta Commit-
tee aims to attract 5,000 for-
eigners to the event.

Senior cultural affairs officer
Dr Patricia Bazard explained
that Carifesta aims to create
opportunities for talented
Bahamians celebrate the arts.

“The Bahamas has so much
to offer. But many times
Bahamians would look at
another country and consider
that country better than ours,”
said Dr Bazard.

She said Bahamians must
realise that there is a great
deal of talent in the country
and that what is needed is a

greater level of involvement

in the arts.

The overall objective. of '

Carifesta is to deepen aware-
ness and knowledge of the
diverse aspirations of
Caribbean people and to fos-
ter a vision of Caribbean uni-
ty.

Dr Bethel said the only dif-
ficulty facing the department
in hosting the event will be
accommodation.

She also stated that when
choosing venues for the event,
they are likely to consider the
most popular Bahamian
islands.

The committee estimated
that Carifesta will cost about
$1 million to host, pointing out
that junkanoo costs the
Bahamas around $2 million
annually.

Dr Bethel encouraged busi-
ness owners and vendors to
take part in the event, which
has the potential to generate a
great deal of revenue.

Performances

Carifesta will involve per-
formances by numerous local
and Caribbean artists and will
be profit-oriented and sub-
contracted to the promoter of
the event. _

Dr Bethel added that Car-

ifesta is an excellent opportu- |

nity for the Bahamas to build
relationships with neighbor-
ing countries.

Dr Anne Peterson-Higgins,
special events coordinator,
said: “I want to encourage our
Bahamians to get involved in
this event, because our little
Bahamas has so much talent
and we have so much to offer
if we just try.”

Persons interested in par-
ticipating in the event are
asked to contact Dr Peterson-

Mr Miller explained that corporate clients

He said that instead of going to govern-

Virgin Islands
refinery seeks to
halt payments to
active duty troops

@ CHARLOTTE AMALIE,

U.S. Virgin Islands Oe

A NEW law requiring com-
pariies in the U.S. Virgin
Islands to pay active-duty
National Guard and reserve
troops the difference between
their military pay and private-
sector salaries is already being
contested by one of the.
world's biggest oil refineries,
according to Associated Press.

The Hovensa oil refinery,
owned by the state oil compa-
ny of Venezuela and New
York-based Amerada Hess
Corporation, is suing to strike
down the law, passed by the
island's legislature in Decem-
ber, saying it's unfair and
open-ended.

"There is no reason why a’

' private employer should have

to bear that burden with no

. limitation," Henry Fuerzeig,

an attorney with Hovensa, the
Western Hemisphere's sec-
ond-largest oil refinery, said
Thursday.

But critics of the lawsuit
‘argue the measure is necessary
to sustain families of soldiers
deployed to Iraq, Afghanistan
and elsewhere.

“We don't want our people
losing their homes or having
quality-of-life issues while
away serving their country,"
said Emmett Hansen, U.S.
Virgin Islands director of the
Employer Support of the
Guard and Reserve. os

Hovensa, the U.S. territo-
ry's largest private employer,
sued on July 28 seeking to

stop making up the salary dif-

ference for at least eight
employees serving in the
National Guard.
Many U.S. states offer to
ay public employees the dif-
erence between their federal

"military pay and state pay, and

many large U.S. employers
voluntarily pay the difference,

* seeing it as a matter of patrio-

tism or good business. .

The new law requires large
private employers in the U.S.
Caribbean territory to do the
same. .

Refinery operators say
that's unfair, since the money
comes out of a corporation's
bottom line, while government
agencies rely on taxpayer dol-
lars.

"If you want to compensate,
make it fair," said Fuerzeig.

In brief

FNM ‘united

firmly behind

Edison Key’

_ THE FNM has united
' firmly behind South Aba-
co candidate Edison Key
and expects to sweep to
victory throughout the
island in the general elec-
tion, say party officials.
Though Mr Key was

seen by some as a contro-
versial choice, he now has
the full support of FNMs
on the island, they added.
. “Mr Key is totally com-
mitted to defeating the
PLP and, whether there
are two or three seats on
Abaco for the election,
we’ll win them all,” said
_ Jack Albury, chairman of

’- the FNM’s South Abaco

constituency branch.

’ His prediction came as
FNM workers on Abaco
geared up for a possible
early election.

At one time, former
administrator Everette
Hart was being touted as
a possible FNM candi-
date.

But Mr Albury said Mr
Hart, a personal friend of
his, had never really
wanted to get involved in
politics.

“Edison Key will be
our candidate and MP for
South Abaco. If there are
two seats on the island,
we’ll win them both. If
there are three, then we’ll
win all three.”

Mr Albury predicted
that Mr Key would beat
the PLP by at least 500
votes, whoever was cho-
sen to run against him.
“Edison has brought a
huge following to the
FNM,” he said. “We have
a united front behind
him.-By the time the elec-
tion is called, a very high
percentage of Abaconi-
ans will vote for him.

“What he will bring to
the table will far out-
weigh the few who might -
stay away from the polls.”

Mr Key, a former PLP
stalwart, quit as a senator
to throw his weight
behind the opposition

party.

SURPRISE revelations at
Adelaide Primary School sug-
gest the school may open late
this academic year — due to a
lack of funds.

The Tribune learned this
while on a tour of the school,
when contractor ‘Herman

ter of Education Alfred Sears
that he had been forced to use
personal funds to finance some
of the construction.

“T have done all I can do out

Bay Street merchants
‘could lose 20% of
revenue’ due to cruise
ship entering dry dock |

lm KARIN HERIG
Tribune Staff Reporter

BAY Street merchants
estimate that they could lose
up to 20 per cent of their. rev-

enue for two business days:

as the Carnival cruise ship —
which: spilled oil into
Bahamian waters on Tues-
day — was forced to enter dry
dock in Freeport.

-Carnival announced yes-
terday that it has cancelled
the Celebration’s August 21
to 26 cruise so the ship can

_ be repaired.

Oil

The Celebration — which
docks in Nassau twice week-
ly — spilled 53 gallons of
lubricating oil after damag-
ing two-engines during a

failed attempt to berth at
. Prince George Dock.

Although Carnival Cruise
Lines first announced that
the ship would be able to
immediately resume opera-

tions, it now said that the’

extent of damage to the ves-
sel was greater than antici-
pated.

Following this announce-
ment, Bay Street merchants
are now concerned
that it will mean a significant
hit to their revenue in-
take.

“That is a bread-and-but-

ae

ter ship for us. It makes up
for about 15 to 20 per cent of
our business,” one store
owner told The Tribune yes-

soa Sys od
PHO ANS

Business

With. the Celebration
expected not to able to con-
tinue regular operations until
August 26, Nassau will lose
out on two days. of business
from cruise ship passengers.

“We will lose. a Saturday
and a Thursday. Two days of
business, that is very signifi-
cant,” said one shop owner.

After the Celebration’s
propeller hit the ground dur-
ing the docking procedure
earlier this week, the. ship's
scheduled call into Nassau
was immediately cancelled,
and passengers onboard dur-
ing the incident were offered
a $100 shipboard credit and a

ag

‘25 per cent discount on

future three- to seven-day
cruises through December
13, 2007.

A Carnival spokesman

‘said the company expects to

have the Celebration back in:
the water in time for its
August 26 to 31 cruise.

. The Ministry of Transport
said that in the preliminary
reports conducted by the
Royal Bahamas Defence
Force, it was revealed that
the spill was “minimal” and

rooms and is being extended

pal of the school, David Dean
told The Tribune.

Capacity

Mr Sears said he anticipates
that the school will be ready
for September 4, but added
that this will be dependent on
the capacity of the contractor.

Permanent secretary in the
Ministry of Education
Creswell Sturrup confirmed
that the school is. being
repaired at'a cost of $300,000.

The school expects 128 stu-
dents for the next academic

year. However the school is
being extended to accommo-
date more students.

Over 50 schools in New
Providence are being refur-
bished; 30 of those according
to Mr Sturrup are getting

“major repairs”.

These projects will cost $17
million collectively.

T G Glover High is among
the schools that are being
repaired, an will be complete-
ly reconstructed — at a cost of
$10 million. This institution,
Mr Sturrup said, will accom-
modate 800 students.

The tour was one in a series
of exercises that the Ministry
of Education has been under-
taking to look at the progress
of all the schools being refur-
bished, repaired or built in
New Providence and the Fam-
ily Islands.

Surprise test for explosives liquids

SCIENTISTS and engineers at the Pacific

’ Northwest National Laboratory in Richland

have created a device that they say could be
used to rapidly and accurately identify any
suspicious liquids carried on board by air-
plane passengers.

The device, which uses ultrasound, can
even tell the difference between Coke and

Diet Coke. Despite the fact that the research —

was done at a national lab, the device’s exis-
tence appears to have come as news to many
officials at the Department of Homeland
Security and Transportation Security Admin-
istration.

Ever since British authorities announced
they had thwarted a terrorist plot to use dis-
guised liquid explosives on airplanes, spokes-
people forthe federal agencies have repeat-
edly said there is no “operationally viable” or

“feasible” technological way today to rapid-
ly and routinely screen for liquid explosives at .

airports.
Aaron Diaz, a physicist at the Richland

lab, respectfully disagrees.
“We’re making these measurements in
about three to four seconds, but I think we

could get it down to one or two,” said Diaz, .
who led the lab’s effort to develop its patent

pending HAZAID (Hazardous Material
Acoustic Inspection Device).
“We've been getting barraged with calls
about this for the last week,” he said. Some of
those calls have been with Homeland Security
officials anxious to learn more, Diaz said.
“It’s‘very coincidental that this (terror plot)
would come just as we were wrapping the
project up,” he said. TSA officials had been
aware of an earlier, similar prototype the lab

developed years ago, Diaz said, but there

hadn’t been any urgent official interest in
their new-and-improved liquid explosive
detector until last week., ;

“The earlier unit was designed for large
volume containers, based on U.S. Customs
work at:the borders,” said Diaz. “We realized
years ago there was going to be a need for
looking at very small containers.”

The device uses sound waves to precisely

identify liquids. An earlier, larger version of -

this acoustic inspection device was created
in the early 1990s at the Richland lab for
chemical weapons inspections after the 1991
Gulf War. The national lab today trains bor-
der guards from many countries in the use of
this technology as part of an international
treaty prohibiting chemical weapons traf-
ficking. . 8 .

Diaz, working with his team of PNNL sci-
entists, engineers and software programmers,
years ago set out to modify this technology so
it could be used on smaller containers. For
use in airports, he knew the device had to

liquids contained in almost any kind of mate-
rial.

“We completely redesigned the thing,” he
said. His team had to modify the electronics,
alter the nature of the sound waves and re-
programme the software to increase its sen-

" sitivity.

Unlike the older units, Diaz said, the HAZ-
AID measures both the speed of sound waves
travelling through liquid and the attenuation
— how the waves are altered as they travel.

“This really increases our measurement
sensitivity,“ Diaz said.

But one of the complaints transportation
officials have had with earlier detection meth-
ods is a lack: of specificity — too many false
alarms. — eee ‘

Amy Kudwa, a spokeswoman for TSA,
said in response to media inquiries last week
that it is the high error rate of many of these
new detection technologies. that has pre-
vented the agency from putting them into
wide use. ;

Critics noted, however, that the highly
dubious effectiveness of an airport screen-
ing technique known as “behaviour obser-
vation” didn’t prevent TSA from putting it
into use at a dozen airports. The agency now
has “behaviour detection officers“ who look
for facial features or mannerisms some psy-
chologists believe involuntarily reveal people
up to no good.

Not everyone is convinced the approach '
will ever be viable as a tool for airport screen-
ing. Some members of Congress have said

' they are concerned TSA has emphasized

funding personnel increases while cutting
back on technological developments. .

A 2004 Government Accountability Office
report noted that the agency, in 2003, trans-
ferred more than half of its $110 million
research budget to cover personnel costs.
This directly undermined research projects,
the GAO reported, that were dedicated to
developing new technologies that could,
“detect weapons, liquid explosives and flam-
mables in carry-on luggage or passengers’

~ effects .”

Diaz and his team at PNNL, fortunately,
were not dependent on TSA funding for
development of HAZAID. They won’t reveal

"yet who the client is for the device, but the lab

routinely works on contract for commercial

‘interests to develop new products. The patent

that was filed for HAZAJID is held by the pri-
vate Battelle Memorial Institute.

Diaz said he believes the new device is
nearly ready for prime time, though it may
need to go through more testing to convince
officials that it is highly unlikely to produce
many false alarms.

EDITOR, The Tribune.
THIS past August Monday
weekend, Bahamians cele-
brated that special and histor-
ical day of Emancipation
throughout the Common-
wealth of the Bahamas. After
more than three hundred
years of suffering under the
shackles of slavery, by a Roy-
al proclamation, Queen Vic-
toria ended one of the most
evil chapters in the history of
colonialism. Millions of
Africans had been stolen
from Africa for the purpose
of being sold into slavery in
the colonies. Their basic
human rights and dignity were
taken away. Their lives were
physically controlled with oth-
ers dictating their behaviour.
Emancipation was supposed
to mark the beginning of a
new dawn of liberation in
what is referred to’ as a
civilised world. The former
African slave was “free” and
thus responsible for the
moulding of his own destiny.
The sky was the limit and the
only limit was his imagination.
However, physical slavery was
réplaced by an even greater
and more sinister menace, one

that had no regards for race, »

creed, colour or religion. This
was the concept of mental
slavery. By controlling your
mind and thoughts, an oppres-
sor could abuse and degrade

~ you without any physical

infliction. Psychological scars
are slow to heal and can be
just as painful many years lat-
er as the day they were inflict-
ed. The great reggae legend
Bob Marley sang, “Emanci-
pate yourselves from mental

-slavery...none but ourselves

can free our minds!”. Amaz-
ingly, after 172 years since the
original day of Emancipation,

' far too many of us are still vic-

tims of mental slavery.

_ ,»,Mental slavery has empow-
‘“éred corrupt and misdirected

leaders over the years. By
brainwashing a nation, a “wut-
less” government can get
away with the most barbaric
and demented acts. By ‘skil-
fully controlling the people
with only providing them with
a selective amount of infor-
mation always results in social
disaster and disorder for that
nation. Oftentimes, the nation
pays a terrible price for such
ignorancé, with those exploit-
ing-the masses, abusing both
their privileges and public

trust. Supported by persons. -
. who would believe without

question what is said and done
by those in power who take
advantage of such an unjust
system has been directly
responsible for some of the
worst atrocities in modern
times. Just look at the Red
Tide that swept through China
under Mao Tse-tung when
millions were killed when pro-
moting an ideology that could-
n’t be questioned.

Efforts to eliminate, if not
control men, came out of the
ashes of the holocaust after
World War II. With a com-

mitment of “Never Again”,

the new body called the Unit-
ed Nations, formed in the

-postwar era to unite the

nations of the world, con-
ceived a document to prevent
such world disorders and dis-
asters in an effort to save
mankind from itself. That doc-

ument was named “The Uni- -

versal Declaration of Human
Rights!” One of the most fun-
damental provisions of the
Declaration to promote world
peace and understanding is
the one of freedom of expres-
sion. Anyone has the right to
express their opinion against
any institution or government
without fear or favour.
Whether or not you like what
was being said, doesn’t give
you the right to prevent what

- was being said. You cannot

punish someone for what is
going on in their head!

So important was this pro-
vision of the Declaration, that
many countries, including the
Bahamas, has adopted it as a
part of their Constitution or
the supreme authority of that
country. With Freedom of
Expression enshrined in the
Constitution, democracy will
flourish in that country. Any
effort by any authority or
institution to limit or curtail
such protection must be met
with a ‘determined vigilance.
This is something that under
any circumstances must never

‘be compromised. Journalists,

members of the Opposition
and the average citizen must
be afforded the right to criti-

‘cise the government of the
day or any institution in his‘

country.

> Regrettably, too many lead-
ers have blatantly and per-
versely disregarded this criti-
cal provision of the Declara-
tion by penalising and crimi-

nalising those who try to crit--

icise or promote an opinion
contrary to the status quo.
Journalists and persons who
dared to speak out against the
government soon discovered
that there was a ‘high price
and in some cases the ultimate
price to pay for exercising this
basic human right.

The classic case in the
Bahamas is that of Lionel
Dorsett who was dragged
before the courts and charged
with the offence of “criminal
libel.” For having made.a
statement questioning the
integrity of Prime Minister
Lynden Pindling, he was
threatened with seven years
imprisonment without the
possibility of parole. —

The 1991 Election Petition
Act forbidding the Bahamas
to discuss
Bahamian political opinion
from abroad was another
gross and blatant violation of

the Bahamian Constitution by | -

the government of the day in

or broadcast.

its evil attempt to prevent per-
sons from freely expressing

. themselves.

Recently, in Cuba, a neigh-
bour of the Bahamas, some
journalists were given as many
as 30 years in prison for pub-
lications contrary to the estab- .
lishment. This is so wrong and
it only serves as a tool of
intimidation and oppression. .
How any country, including: ' ’
the Bahamas, could support a
country such as Cuba to serve
on the United Nations Human

Rights Council is beyond any...

reasonable comprehension.

times, the Press has. been
under fire, especially the dai- _

Tribune Staff Reporter

IN AN effort to boost voter registration, FNM Senator
Tommy Turnquest is urging students who live abroad to
register in time for the next general election.

Slogans like “Rock the Vote” may soon be heard in the
streets, as Senator Turnquest hopes to approach the coun-
try’s young voters in a new and aggressive way.

The number of persons who have registered for the next
election is still low — at last count only 71,000 had signed up
— and Senator Turnquest said he hopes to encourage more
Bahamians to exercise their right to vote, especially uni-

Ss.

He pointed out, however, that the reluctance on the part

Mr Turnquest said that the large number of Bahamians

citizen of this country to vote to assure that the best party
will be in place to make the best.decisions on their behalf,”

he said.

that when many of our students return home, they bemoan

Military jail director |
in Venezuelan prison escape

Hi CARACAS, Venezuela

THE director of a Venezue-
lan military jail was under
investigation Friday in con-
nection with the high-profile
escape of four convicts,
including a key foe of Presi-
dent Hugo Chavez, according
to Associated Press.

Col. Gustavo Busnego,
director of the Ramo Verde
military prison, has been tem-
porarily removed from his
position and summoned to

_ testify to a military court, said
Gen. Carlos Acosta Perez,
chief of the armed forces gen-
eral staff.

Prominent labor union
leader Carlos Ortega and
three convicted ex-military
officers escaped from the jail
last weekend. Officials say the
four fugitives may have fled
to the Caribbean islands of

Aruba and Curacao.

A low-ranking National
Guard member working as a
prison guard at the time has
been detained as a primary
suspect, and 14 other mem-
bers of the military are also
being investigated.

Ortega, 60, led a crippling
national strike in 2002-2003
aimed at ousting Chavez's
government and was serving a
16-year sentence for civil
rebellion.

Two of the three ex-mili-
tary officers were serving
nine-year terms for military
rebellion in connection with
an alleged plot by Colombian
paramilitaries to assassinate
Chavez.

The third was arrested for
theft in 2005 after a military
assault rifle was found hidden
in his car's fender. All three
maintained their innocence.

contract will |
‘go to tender
in 10 days’

i By KAHMILE REID

THE CONTRACT for
the Lowe Sound High
School in North Andros will
go to tender in 10 days
according to Copeland
Moxey, senior architect at
the Ministry of Works.

He told The Tribune on
Tuesday that the construc-

tion of this new high school

is in accordance with the
directions given to the Min-
istry of Education Science
and Technology by the
Cabinet: “to undertake a
systematic overhaul of the
educational intrastructure
‘in Andros.”

*."Mr Moxey, who is also
the co-ordinator of the pro-
ject — which is geared
toward the modernisation
of all the schools in Andros
~ said the school will be
built on 12 acres of land.

Aside from the actual
school buildings, he said,
there will be several physi-
cal education facilities,
including a softball field,
volleyball.and netball
courts, and track and field
facilities.

The institution, according
to Mr Moxey,,will have the
capacity to accommodate
-1,400 students.

The construction period
for this school is thought to
be 18 months, he added.
*."-Mr Moxey said he was

‘unable to confirm the price
tag for the project.

Lowe Sound High is one
of: 10 schools that are being
refurbished in Andros at a,
collective cost of $6 million.

A team from the Ministry
of Education toured
Andros on Tuesday, then
travelled to Bimini on
Wednesday to evaluate the
- progress of school repairs
on that island.

They are set to visit
Eleuthera and Abaco, on
Monday and Wednesday
respectively, to look at
the progress of repairs
there.

“I feel great to be the first
blind minister in the church

preaching, teaching and’

exalting the word of God,”
he said.

Mr Hanna, who has been
blind since he was 17, said
that blind persons can
achieve their goals through
proper education, determi-

He noted that the develop-
ment of modern equipment
in the 21st century has made
it possible for visually
impaired persons to get a col-
lege education.

“There are great possibili-

‘ties for the blind and I am a

great example of that, said
Mr Hanna, who has complet-'
ed business courses in Eng-
land and Canada.

“I always believed in fight-
ing for my rights, and I was

Mr Hanna is well-known
for his work for the blind in
New Providence and Grand
Bahama, where he served as
president of the Northern
Council For the Disabled and
president of the Blind
and Visually Impaired in
Freeport.

He believes that more
needs to be done for the
blind in the Bahamas.

“We need the facilities

here to upgrade the standard.
. of education for the blind to

further their vocational train-
ing,” he said.

Despite his disability, Han-
na worked as a switchboard
operator at the Rand Memo-
rial Hospital. He is now
retired.

Rev Hanna, who held the
position of Elder at First

Holiness Church of God, was -

one of two persons that were
ordained at the church’s con-
vention by church overseer
Bishop Edward Missick of
Nassau.

* With his ordination to such

a high office in the church,

Hanna has set a precedent
for the blind and continues
to be pacesetter.

eral Superintendent Bishop
Edward Missick and local
pastor Lucile Woodside,”

EDNESDAY,
April 24, 1984 saw

> demonstrations in favour of

bringing in the option of cor-
poral punishment as a penalty
for rape. Now attorney gener-
al, but then co-chair of the
Citizens for a Better Bahamas
Committee Allyson Maynard-
Gibson, brought together
hundreds of Bahamians who
felt strongly that not enough
was being done to deter
rapists, or give women incen-

-. tives to report them — in light

of steadily increasing rape
rates over previous years. Mrs
Maynard-Gibson and co-chair
Mrs Janet Bostwick
“favoured the cat” — that is,
the cat-o-nine tails, as punish-
ment for rape. Currently, the
situation remains that "the
cat" is on the books in the
Bahamas, but is not applied
as a sentence.









& A GROUNDSWELL of support: Despite the pleas by Mrs Janet Boswick MP (pictured front,
centre) that others did not join her due to the risk of arrest, the number of people marching with her
along East Street in the early part of the morning towards parliament grew. The popular support for .
the amendment to the Jaw was substantial.

m@ A MASS MOVEMENT: later that day the anti-rape protesters congregated at the South-
ern recreation ground, waving placards. The issue brought Bahamians from all sectors of society
together in the biggest demonstration to take place in Nassau in years.

































m@ ABOVE: TO THE POINT:

Mrs Janet Bostwick, co-chairman of
CBB emphatically urged Bahami-
ans to inform their political repre-
sentatives that they want judges to

be able to punish.

Mf LEFT: UNITED Against
Rape: As co-chairman of the Con- ,
cerned Citizens for a Better
Bahamas (CBB), Allyson Maynard-
Gibson (holding placard) headed
the historic march on Wednesday
April 4, 1984 demanding heavier
penalties for rapists.

From the beginning, Ms
Farquharson tried to have
the trial into the murders
of Robins and the four

_Grand Bahama boys
‘.joined as one.

It was her argument
that these murders were .
all a part of a series of
events that attested to the
accused man’s psychosis.
Justice Anita Allen, how-
ever, ruled that Farring-
ton had to stand separate
trials. 5

Ms Farquharson then
took her argument to the
Court of Appeal, but was
unsuccessful in having” :
Justice Allen’s’ ruling
overturned.”

The prosecution has
maintained that Farring-
ton was not crazy and
knew right from wrong
when he murdered 22-
year-old, Robins.

Its case was that he had
murdered ie in cold

Coroner Virgill said the eh acripis of that inquest are almost
complete. However her secretary, who is compiling, copying and
stapling several copies of the transcript of some eight weeks of
witness testimony, was on vacation. The coroner also noted that
some 10 different court reporters were attached to the court at
various stages in the inquest and that all of their reports had to
be submitted. Most of these reports, she said, had been sub-
mitted. However, two are still outstanding.

The programme, which
comes under the Urban
Renewal project, started on
July 20. It was held} daily at
Claridge Primary, CR Walker
High, Sandilands, Queen Eliz-
abeth Sports Centre, and
Kendal G'L Isaacs Gym.

Mrs Hepburn said that about
2,000 students were hired, in
addition to teachers who were
_ taken on to supervise the teen
students.

“This is their first year do
it, and they don’t want the te
to be known so that they can
. bring it off on their own for
everyone to give them credit,”
she said.

“But this is not important

right now because high-school-:

ers who participated need their
monies for school, and college
students need to be paid to
take care of their tuition,” she
said. |

Mrs Hepburn suggested that
government could not have

‘ allocated $1.8 million for the

programme as announced by

Minister Wisdom or else there -
» would have been no difficulty

in paying the workers.
She said the programme is in

_ its third year. For the two pre-'

by the Ministry of Youth and
Culture.

“Now it is under the Ministry
of Youth and Housing, but
Housing takes a majority of the
load since the Prime Minister
switched up the Ministries in
cabinet.

“Some of the student work-
ers went down to the Ministry
yesterday to get their monies,
but Oral LaFleur, the director
of the programme, was not

there.”

Mrs Hepburn said she called
Mr LaFleur once on the matter,
but “he didn’t really give an

‘answer, and kept passing me
on to other people.”
’ She explained that other
workers who participated in the .

programme have made numer-
ous unsuccessful attempts to
contact Mr LaFleur.

“When I called, I didn’t get
through, and when I tried again
they said no one was in the
office to speak with me. I was
told that most of the other
workers had already made
plans to go away before the
programme ended.”

rks & Caicos’ first premier



1


























By FRANKLYN G FERGUSON



ONCE there was a greater Bahamas and per-
haps, in our own lifetime, the Bahamas will be
greater again. Up to 1838, the Turks and Caicos
Islands were a part of the Bahamas.

They were represented by Horatio N. Chipman
and John McIntosh, who in 1836 petitioned the |
House of Assembly in Nassau claiming the
nation, with salt as one of its major industries, was
being treated poorly by the then government
here.

The Turks and Caicos were annexed to
Jamaica in 1847, then, after that country’s inde-
pendence in 1962, the Turks and Caicos had an
association with the Bahamas for over a decade
until it became a British Crown Colony. -

And, on August 9th, 2006, Turks and Caicos
swore in its first Premier, Dr Michael E Misick.
Special guests at the occasion included Dr Den-
zil L Douglas, Prime Minister of St Kitts & Nevis
and Chairman of CARICOM.

American rival Sanya Richards yes-

The meet also saw two other

a time of 50.18 seconds.

Bahamian Christine Amertil also

THE Bahamas Olympic Association

' put an extra $5,000 into the kitty for the

Bahamas Volleyball Federation’s host-

- ing of the Caribbean Volleyball Cham-
pionships.

The presentation was made on Friday

: in the office of BOA president Arlington
Butler as the championship’s opening on
Sunday draws closer and the federation
aims for its projected target of $200,000.
' “Weare pleased to be able to assist
the. volleyball federation in bringing.
about this tournament, which we are
pleased they brought here because this
will not only provide an opportunity for
our players to improve their skills, but it
will be a worthwhile tournament for the
Bahamian people to watch,” Butler
charged.

“For that reason, we have made a pre-

‘sentation to the volleyball federation,
which we normally do for these various
functions. We are indeed happy that you
will be able to put this on.”

_ Federation president Don Cornish said
every step they make in putting a dent in
their projected expenditure is progress.

“Obviously starting very late didn’t
help us, so we are a little ways off from
meeting our financial obligations,” Cor-
nish revealed. “But we are very pleased
that the Olympic Association is providing
us with some of that support.”

Cornish said they are still appealing to
corporate Bahamas to come forth and
make their financial contribution and for
the Bahamian people to come out and
view the championships that start on Sun-
day night at the Kendal Isaacs Gym so
they can meet their obligations when they
are concluded on Sunday, August 26.

~~ Shenique

Ferguson
reflects on
200m final

@ TRACK AND FIELD
By BRENT STUBBS
Senior Sports
Reporter

SHENIQUE ‘Q’ Fer-
guson said she was disap-
pointed that she finished
eighth in the final of the
women’s 200 metres at

.the 11th IAAF World
Junior Championships in

Beijing, China.

But she’s comforted by
the fact that, at age 15,
she still has a bright
future ahead of her in
track and field.

“When I finished the
race, I was kind of disap-
pointed that I was eighth,
but the coaches told me
that I am still young, so I
shouldn’t feel that bad,”
said Ferguson in an inter-
view with The Tribune
from Beijing yesterday.

Coming off her semifi-
nal appearance in the 100
on the first day of compe-
tition, Ferguson became
the second Bahamian to
make it to a final at the
championships. _

She ran 24.03 seconds
last night for eighth.

The gold went to
Tezdzhan Naimova of
Bulgaria in a personal
best of 22.99 with Vanda
Gomes of Brazil taking
the silver in a season’s
best of 23.59 and Ewelina
Klocek of Poland captur-
ing the bronze in 23.63.

“I got off the curve and
I just went for it,” said
Ferguson, who admitted
that she was right in the
race for the first 100.
“Coming to the end, I
think in the last 50, I felt
I didn’t have any more to

’ give.”

Ferguson said she will
chalk this up as a learn-
ing experience:

’ “Pm very proud. ’m
happy. I’m only 15,” she
reflected. “To make it to
the semifinal and the

_ final is a great achieve--

"+ ment for me.”

As for the competition,
Ferguson said it was
extremely tough.

_ “T didn’t know that it

.. «was going to be as tough

- as it was,” she stressed. -
“But now I know what I
have to do when I come
home. I have to work
harder to get my time
_ 7.7 faster.”
'."-". Before she comes
home, Ferguson will run
on the women’s 4. x.100
__ relay team. During the |
‘interview, neither Fergu-
-"-’son or team manager
Rosie Carey could say
how the team will be set
up. - ;
_. But Ferguson said she’s
.- confident that they
-.- should go out and make
the final on Sunday. The
Bahamas ran out of lane
five in the second of
three heats. The United
States is in lane four and
Great Britain in six.
.) The first two finishers
plus the next two fastest
times will advance to the
final.
T’Shonda Webb, who
ran in the preliminaries
of the women’s 100, was
also expected to compete
on the team. She went.a
little further than Fergu-
son in her predictions.

“This is an awesome
group of girls,” she stat-
ed. “We are going for the
gold. I’m looking forward
to running on the team.
We feel we can win a
medal.”

The men’s 4 x 400 team
also ran in the prelimi-
naries yesterday. They
were in lane one in the
first of three heats with
France in two and the
United States in three.

The first two in each
heat plus the next two
fastest times will advance
to Sunday’s final.

Carey said with all of
the individual perfor-
mances complete, they
are now focussing on the
two relays.

She indicated that all of
the athletes are eager to
compete.

sure everyone
— isa part of
the process"

m@ By BRENT STUBBS
Senior Sports Reporter

ONE of the most difficult tasks of
hosting an event like the Caribbean Vol-
leyball Championships is to make sure
that everybody is properly accredited.

Renee ‘Sunshine’ Curry has been giv-
en that responsibility by the Bahamas
Volleyball Federation and she noted
that it’s a job that has kept.her standing
on her feet.

“Basically, we’ve been having people
coming out in droves to be accredited,”
said Curry, who took a break from pho-
tographing a few people for the inter-
view this week at the Kendal Isaacs
Gymnasium. .

While Curry has had to photograph
the Bahamian teams, dignitaries and
volunteers as they show up, the visit-
ing teams have been emailing their pho-

tos, which will alleviate the long lines

when they arrive in town this weekend.

Curry said that has made it even eas-. -

ier for her to have everybody processed
in time for the start of the champi-
onships on Sunday night.

“Even though we will be at the hotel

SPORTS

-e CARIBBEAN VOLLEYBALL CHAMPIONSHIPS

makes

that we have everything set up for
them,” said Curry, about the processing
of the visiting teams. :

As for the local personnel to be
processed, Curry said she’s at the gym
almost all day and even through the
evening taking their photographs as
they show up.

Up to the time of the interview, Cur-
ry said she had already processed 250
people. She couldn’t give a final count
of just how many she will have to
accredit. °

But she noted that as fast as they walk
into the press centre in the secretariat at
the gym, she will snap their photos and
they will be on their way out.

“Tt’s not a long process once they get
in,” she said. “The longest they will ©
probably have to wait is on the line out-
side and that’s just because we can only
accommodate one at‘a time in the
room,” she summed up.

Curry, a member of: the defending
national ladies softball champions Elec-
tro Telecom Wildcats, has taken the
entire month off from her job at the
Ministry of Youth, Sports and Culture -
to assist the federation in the accredi-
tation process.

nasium ensuring that all of
the letters are typed and sent
out and the necessary. data
are put into the computer.
It’s a job that has Forbes
working around the clock
since the federation agreed
to host the championships,

which kick off on Sunday. -
“My job entails coordinat-. -

ing all aspects of these

games, from the tournament "

set up, to volunteers, to help-
ing in the gym, helping in the
concession, helping in the
festival that will be held out-
side to even telling people
where to park,” she stated.
“It’s just been crazy.”
Despite the workload that
has been placed in her lap,
Forbes said her main objec-
tive is to remain cool, calm

and collected, advice she has |

been taught all her life, even
in tough situations.

“When I go home at night,
I dream about this place and
when I wake up at 6am, IJ
wake up with the intent of
getting here at 7:30, but I get
here between 8-9 to do the
little things I can do before
the people start coming in
and the phone ringing,” she
stated.

“Somehow, through the
grace of God, I get through.
Thank God. I get things
done. Unbelievably.”

However, with the days
winding down to the start of
the tournament on Sunday,
Forbes said she doesn’t
expect her workload to get
any easier. ,

“T expect my job to get



ml HARD AT WORK:
Crystal Forbes

harder because I’m in charge
of the statisticians and I’m
in charge of the scorers,” she
further pointed out. “So I
will have to leave this job
and moving towards helping
them.

“Right now, Kirk Far-

‘quharson is helping them.
He’s our head official. He’s .

training the statisticians and
scorers. Once his job is done,
I have to take over and coor-
dinate them when the tour-
nament start.”

From day one, Forbes said
she’s been under a lot of
pressure, but people have
been popping in from time
to time assisting her, so it has
made her job a little easier.

Forbes, however, said she’s
excited about the tourna-
ment because, as a volleyball
player, she will enjoy watch-
ing the high level of compe-
tition during the week, long
session.

The bidding:
South ‘West. . North East
3 NT Pass Pass. . Pass

Opening lead — jack of spades.
Bridge is a game:of probabilities:
You make a certain bid because you
think it has a better chance to suc-
ceed than any other bid. You make a

certain play because you think it is —

more likely to work than any other
play.

But a probability, by definition,
is not'a certainty. All you can do in
bridge is rely on the percentages and
hope for the best. You may be wrong
in a particular case if you follow the
percentages, but. in the long run
you'll be right more often than

wrong.
All. of which leads us to this deal,
which is strictly a matter of percent-

ages. Let’s say you win the spade
lead with the king and play the king
of hearts. West takes the ace and
retums a spade, which you win with
the ace.

You have eight certain tricks and

two- ways to try for a ninth. You can
enter dummy with a diamond and
take a club finesse. If the jack wins,
you are home free. You have about a
50-50 chance of making the contract
this way, but in the actual. deal this
approach would fail.

The alternate line of play is to

cash the A-K of clubs and continue
with the jack. This method will suc-

ceed if the clubs are divided 3-3 or if

either the queen. or ten falls as the A-:
K are led. The diamond king pro-
vides the entry to dummy if the nine
of clubs becomes a trick.

Some knowledge of percentages
is required to know which of the two

lines of play has the greater chance. .

of success.

The second approach is much
better. The clubs will break 3-3 about
36 percent of the time, while a
singleton or doubleton queen or ten
will occur in-approximately one deal
out of three...

The combined chance of finding
the clubs 3-3 or otherwise favorably
divided comes to about 70 percent —
20 percent better than the finesse.
Playing the A-K-J of clubs is there-
fore the superior ‘line of play, and
succeeds in the actual deal.

Two American amateurs
reached this tricky position
during a game in Ohio in 1993.
Black (to play) is a pawn down,
but has plenty of compensation
with all his pieces poised to
invade the white defences. He
has to be careful, though, since
White's own rook and knight
are entrenched deep in black
territory. Black narrowed down
his selection to Qd2 and Nd2,
not realising that one move
wins while the other loses.
Unable to decide between
them, he mentally tossed a
coin, and made the wrong
choice. Can you do better, and
demonstrate which move
scores the point and which is a
blunder?

regret it later. '

CANCER - Jun 22/Jul' 22

You've put all your eggs in one bas-
ket, Cancer, .and now that things
haven’t worked out, you’re left wor- -

dering what to do. Family members

won’t let you down. oo
LEO — Jul 23/Aug 23,
Watch how much you spend this
week, Leo. You could go overboard
if you’re not paying attention.
Better leave the credit at home and
use cash instead. ;

VIRGO — Aug 24/Sept 22!
If you don’t make a move soon in your
love life, you’re going to miss the
opportunity, Virgo. Stop looking for
the perfect Mr. or Ms. Right. Rather,
look outside your comfort zone. 3

LIBRA — Sept 23/Oct 23..-
Now is not the time to make rash
career decisions, Libra. You have too
many responsibilities and bills com-
‘ing in. Even though your job may not
appeal to you anymore, stick with it, :
SCORPIO — Oct 24/Nov 22°
Normally a go-getter, Scorpio, you re
Teady to throw in the towel in regards

CAPRICORN — Dec 22/Jan 30.
Your love life is a mess, Capricorn. ©
You can’t seem to get along with your
partner no matter what you do. Instead

camly and rationally.

AQUARIUS - Jan 21/Feb 18. °-
Stop being argumentative, Aquarius. -
Those around you will grow tired of
hearing how: you’re always, right.
Accept that someone else’s opinion
