Officers act after + films are
recorded on mobile phone

@ By MEGAN REYNOLDS
Tribune Staff Reporter

PORNOGRAPHIC videos
made by schoolchildren wear-
ing uniforms in their classroom

are the’subject of a police inves-.--

tigation launched yesterday.

The films, recorded on a
mobile phone, show several
men graphically molesting a
teenage girl in her school uni-
form, and two school pupils
having sex in the classroom.

. The videos have been sent to
pupils across Nassau by mobile
phone, ina frightening new
trend sweeping the nation. .

Asst Supt Paul Rolle, who
heads the Bahamas police
department for high-tech crime,
said pornography produced by
and for underage teens is an
emerging problem in The
_ Bahamas.

He said: “We have seen a
growing number of incidents
involving minors. | |

“But children who have this
material and share it'with others
will find themselves before the
court either criminally or civilly,
as they or their parents can be
sued for creating or possessing
this kind of material.”

_ ASP Rolle’s team launched

the investigation yesterday after
the two films were handed to
The Tribune anonymously.

As well as using technological
advances to track down the per-
petrators, the police team are

- doing pro-active work in the

community to crack down on
digital porn.

He said: “We have been
speaking at schools and church-
es as well as other organisations
in the community to raise the

-issue,.and we..try..to.speak,to.. |.

parents to make them aware of
the things to look out for when
dealing with their children.” |
The investigation launched
during Bahamas Child Protec-
tion Month has brought a new
issue into the public domain.
Pastor Gil Maycock, chair-
man of the National Child Pro-

tection Council, is familiar with’
schoolchildren producing and:

viewing such material, and is
working to educate children of
all ‘ages about the dangers of

- sexual abuse.
He said: “The internet has

made our world a global village,
and more and more of our chil-
dren want to explore the things
they are being exposed to.

“Parents must.take the
responsibility to monitor their
children’s use of the internet
and mobile phones, and prevent
them from accessing certain
websites.”

After speaking to The Tri-
bune, Dr Sandra Dean-Patter-
son, a psychotherapist and
director of the Crisis Centre in
Shirley Street, said she will
include discussions about the
“horrific” videos in the Green
Ribbon campaign, a nationwide

Bahamas Telecommunication
Company needs new leadership
to address its numerous weak-
nesses and shortcomings, the
company’s board of directors said
in a statement issued yesterday
explaining the decision to ask

president and CEO Leon

The board’s statement said that
they came to this decision after
“having had the opportunity to
assess the critical needs of BTC
over the last 10 months.”

“Mr Williams is currently on
leave until April 30, 2008, after
which his service at BTC will
come to an end,” said the board,
also thanking Mr Williams for his
“many years of service at BTC”
and wishing him success in future

Govt ‘must form

plan for climate
change threat’

@ By ALISON LOWE
Tribune Staff Reporter

alowe@tribunemedia.net

THE government must form a strategic Ldepiatiod and mitigation _
plan to prepare for the multiple threats that climate change poses for
the islands, said a ministry of tourism official.

Director of Sustainable Tourism Development Planning Earlston
McPhee suggested that the Bahamas is lagging behind in this regard
compared with many other countries.

This is despite the fact that experts around the world have identi-
fied the Bahamas as one of the countries! topping lists of nations
which stand to lose most from climate change related changes —
including sea levél rise and more intense hurricanes.

Mr McPhee’s observations come as he recently returned from a
seminar on the issue at the UK’s prestigious Oxford University, enti-
tled “Climate change adaptation and mitigation.”

He said that he was really struck by the level of responsiveness in
other countries to the problems that cleats change may cause for
their territories and populations.

“Some of the countries have already started to put in place plans for
adaptation,” he said.

Representatives from 30 countries, including Greece, Turkey,
Puerto Rico and Uganda, participated in discussions on the vulner-
ability of tourism industries, small island states and developing coun-
tries in the face of the worldwide phenomena.

Discussions centred around presentations given by renowned inter-
national climate, environmental and economics experts in sustainable
tourism development.

Mr McPhee said that “the next step” for the Bahamas in address-
ing the issue is for all agencies of government to “come together with
a strategic plan” which must be supported by sufficient resources.

““We have to make sure that those areas where we are vulnerable
we put in place strategies to mitigate those threats,” he said.

In the United States at least five coastal states are working on cli-
mate change preparedness plans, according to the Pew Centre for Cli-
mate Change.

A Miami Dade task force is developing new standards for buildings,
roads, ports, airports and bridges in light of climate change, with
planning assuming sea level rise, saltwater intrusion and severe
weather. “If you look at the amount of hurricanes that are expected

. . what are the possibilities (in the Bahamas) ifwe have a category
five, a category four, in terms of tidal surge? We need to start look-
ing at how best we can maintain the integrity of our wetlands. We
need buildings set back. We need to look at how we develop and
develop sensibly,” said Mr McPhee.

The director said that it is “ludicrous” to imagine that climate
change is something that we do not need to take action on immedi-
ately. ,

“A lot of people think “We don’t have to worry now, this is in the
future. This is in 20 to 30 years. Why do we have to plan now?’
That’s ludicrous,” he said.

A World Bank study released in 2007 labelled the Bahamas as one
country among three for which the expected sea level rises will be

“potentially catastrophic.”

Out of 25 Latin American and Caribbean countries, the study
found that the Bahamas would, by a very significant degree, be the
most severely impacted.

The Tribune tried unsuccessfully to reach Arthur Rolle, chairman
of the Bahamas Environment Science and Technology Commis-
sion’s climate change committee.

Oil refining
company facility
sale ‘set for
completion’



Carl Bethel

@ By PAUL G TURNQUEST
Tribune Staff Reporter —
pturnquest@tribunemedia.net

THE SALE of the Bahamas
Oil Refining Company facility in
Grand Bahama to the First
Reserve Corporation is expected
to be completed by the end of
this month, Minister of Educa-
tion Carl Bethel said yesterday.

While making a contribution
in the House of Assembly on the
more than $9 billion dollars in
projected capital investment
signed by the government over
the past year, Mr Bethel said that
the National Economic Council
(NEC) had given approval for the
$900 million dollar sale that he
expects will be completed by
April 30.

“That is real money Mr Speak-
er, and of that money, I am happy
to inform this House — with the
consent of the minister of finance,
so the Bahamian people will
know what real money looks and
feels like — that the stamp duty
paid for on that transaction of $40
million dollars is now going to be
paid to the government,” Mr
Bethel said.

In addition to purchasing the
fledgling oil plant, Mr Bethel said
that the First Reserve Corpora-
tion has agreed to invest between
$300 million and $600 million dol-
lars in redeveloping the BORCO
facility.

The First Reserve Corporation
is a leading private equity firm
specalising in the energy indus-
try, which has partnered with
Royal Vopak, a Dutch company
that specialises in the storage and
handling of various oil and nat-
ural gas related products.

According to a news statment
from First Reserve “Vopak and
First Reserve agreed that the ter-
minal will be operated by Vopak
and according to Vopak’s global
operating standards and prac-
tices.”

In addition to this, Vopak will
acquire a 20 per cent interest in
the terminal, which will be named
Vopak Terminal Bahamas and
be operated as an “integral part
of the Vopak global network,” it
said.

$60,000 stolen
from City Market
in Freeport

@ BY DENISE MAYCOCK
Tribune Freeport Reporter
dmaycock@tribunemedia.net

FREEPORT - A police inves-
tigation is underway into the theft
of substantial sums of money
from a City Market in Freeport,
The Tribune has learned.

According to sources, six
cashiers are being investigated in
‘connection with the theft of some
$60,000. It is believed that the
sum was removed over a period
of time.

When The Tribune contacted
Chief Supt Basil Rahming about
the matter, he said “it would be
prejudicial to the police investi-
gation to release any information
to the public about this matter at
this time.”

Man jailed for
drug offence

A MAN was sentenced to 30
months in prison and fined
$10,000 after pleading guilty toa
drug charge.

Windsor Bethel, of James Cis-
tern, Eleuthera and also of Ken-
wood Street off Mount Royal
Avenue, pleaded guilty to pos-
session of 13 pounds of marijuana
with the intent to supply the drugs
to another.

Court dockets alleged that on
Sunday, September 17, 2006
Bethel was found in possession
of a quantity of marijuana with
the intent to supply the same to
another.

Bethel, who appeared before
Magistrate Carolita Bethel at
court eight in Bank Lane on
Tuesday, pleaded guilty to the
charge.

He was told by the court that
failure to pay his fine will result in
an additional year in jail.

. ACCIDENT DRAMA: Kenyatta Gibson at the scene of Tuesday evening’s crash

@ By KARIN HERIG
Tribune Staff Reporter
kherig@tribunemedia.net

KENNEDY MP Kenyatta Gibson told The Tri-
bune yesterday that he is recovering “very well”
from his traumatic car crash on Tuesday evening.

Mr Gibson suffered minor facial injuries when
his Ford Expedition SUV veered off East Bay Street
and crashed through a fence near the basketball
court opposite the Hammerheads Bar and Grill.

The MP said yesterday that except for sustaining
a “bad cut” in his mouth, he was mostly unharmed

in the accident.

However, he admitted that although he feels fine
now, the crash was quite a traumatic experience for
him. “I was very scared when it happened. It’s the
kind of thing that makes you reconsider your life.



ly was a loud pop. That’s what witnesses said they
heard as well, a loud popping sound,” he said.

At the time of the accident yesterday evening,
the basketball court was full of players, but none of

the bystanders were injured as the large SUV
careened across a patch of grass and through a
chain-link fence.

One eye-witness speculated that a blow-out in
one of the vehicle’s front tyres could have caused Mr
Gibson to lose control.

After the crash, the visibly shaken MP was taken
to an upstairs room at the Hammerheads bar to
await medical treatment.

Mr Gibson said that although his injuries did not

than it really was, with the blood in my mouth and all

that. I was shaken,” he said.

As to the exact cause of the accident, the Inde-

vehicle swerving off the road. “All I heard sudden-

Doubts over future of $1.8bn project



THE workforce on the site of
the $1.8 billion development on
Mayaguana has been cut down
by two thirds, it has been claimed
— leading to speculation that the
project may be in jeopardy.

At a press conference held on
Tuesday, MICAL MP Alfred
Gray said that during a recent
trip to Mayaguana he was made
aware that the developers have
become “discouraged”.

“They have reduced the work-
force from about 68 when we left
office in 2007 to about 21 today,”
Mr Gray said. “They gave me no
reason and I suspect it must be
known to the government why
they are discouraged.”

The I-Group project, Mr Gray
said, is still going to continue, but
reportedly at a “very slow rate.”

The development is a 50/50
joint venture between the I-

. Group, a Boston based compa-

ny, and the Bahamas Hotel Cor-
poration, which is owned by the
government. Both parties own
the project through the Mayagua-
na Development Company.

The development covers some
10,000 acres and includes an air-
port, utilities, a marina village,
residential lots, private villas and
condos, a boutique resort and
nature preserves.

The Tribune was unable to
reach representatives from the
company yesterday.

The Mayaguana project was
signed under the PLP govern-
ment of Perry Christie, who tout-
ed it as one of the key develop-
ments under his “anchor project”
plan, which aimed to place. one
major resort on as many islands in
the Bahamas as possible.

The plan envisioned these pro-
jects would become a centre for
economic development, encour-
aging Bahamians who had left to
find work in Nassau or abroad to
return to take advantage of new
opportunities.

Why can’t Obama land the knockout blow?

HE’S never going to shake her off. Not all by
himself.

The very fact that he can’t shake her off has
become her best argument against him. “Why
can’t he close the deal?” Hillary taunted at a
polling place on Tuesday.

She’s been running ads about it, suggesting he
doesn’t have “what it takes” to run the country.
Her message is unapologetically emasculating:
If he does not have the gumption to put me in
my place, when superdelegates are deserting
me, money is drying up, he’s outspending me 2-
to-1 on TV ads, my husband’s going crackers
and party leaders are sick of me, how can he be
trusted to totally obliterate Iran and stop

*Osama?

Now that Hillary has won Pennsylvania, it
will take a village to help Obama escape from
the suffocating embrace of his rival. Certainly
Howard Dean will be of no use steering her to
the exit. It’s like Micronesia telling Russia to
denuke. “You know, some people counted me
out and said to drop out,” she said at her victo-
ry party in Philadelphia, with Bill and Chelsea
by her side. “But the American people...well,
the American people don’t quit. And they

deserve a president who doesn’t quit, either.” -

The Democrats are growing ever more des-
perate about the Attack of the 50 Foot Woman.
With gas prices out of control, with the comi-

cally oblivious President Bush shimmying -
aroundNew Orleans =~ the city he-let-drown — *
and. Condi sneaking into’ Baghdad as .rockets |
and mortars hail down on the Green:Zone, \\:

beating the Republicans should be a cinch.
But the Democrats watch in horror as Hillary
continues to scratch up the once silvery sheen on
Obama, and as John McCain not only consoli-
dates his own party but encroaches on theirs by
boldly venturing into Selma, Ala., on Monday to
woo black voters. They also cringe as Bill con-
tinues his honey-crusted-nut-bar meltdown.
With his usual exquisite timing, just as Penn-
sylvanians were about to vote, Hillary’s hus-
band became the first person ever to play the
Caucasian Card. First, he blurted out to a radio
interviewer that the Obama camp had played
the race card against him after he compared
Obama’s strength in South Carolina to Jesse

Jackson’s. And then, with a Brobdingnagian.

finger-wagging on the screen, he denied it to an
NBC News reporter.

“You always follow me around and play these
little games, and I’m not going to play your
games today,” he said, accusing the reporter of
looking for “another cheap story to divert the
American people from the real urgent issues
before us.”

diversions, it’s Bill. But even for him, it was an
embarrassing explosion, capped with some blue
language to an aide that was caught on air.

The Democrats are eager to move on to an
Obama-McCain race. But they can’t because
no one seems to be able to show Hillary the
door. Despite ail his incandescent gifts, Obama
has missed several opportunities to smash the
ball over the net and end the game. Again and
again, he has seemed stuck at deuce. He com-
plains about the politics of scoring points, but to
win, you’ve got to score points.

He knew he tanked in the Philadelphia
debate, but he was so irritated by the modera-
tors — and by having to stand next to Hillary
again — that he couldn’t summon a single mer-
ry dart. Is he skittish around her because he
knows that she detests him and he’s used to
charming everyone? Or does he feel guilty that
he cut in line ahead of her? As the husband of
Michelle, does he know better than to defy the
will of a'strong woman? Or is he simply scared
of Hillary because she’s scary?

He is frantic to get away from her because he
can’t keep carbo-loading to relate to the com-
mon people. In the final days in Pennsylvania,
he dutifully logged time at diners and force-
fed himself waffles, pancakes, sausage and a
Philly cheese steak. He split the pancakes with
Michelle, left some of the waffle and sausage
behind, and gave away the French fries that

came with the cheese steak.

But this is clearly a man who can’t wait to get
back to his organic scrambled egg whites. That
was made plain with his cri de coeur at the Glid-
er Diner in Scranton when a reporter asked
him about Jimmy Carter and Hamas.

“Why,” he pleaded, sounding a bit, dare we

say, bitter, “can’t I just eat my waffle?”

His subtext was obvious: Why can’t I just be
president? Why do I have to keep eating these
gooey waffles and answering these gotcha ques-
tions and debating this gonzo woman?

Before they devour themselves once more,
perhaps the Democrats will take a cue from Dr
Seuss’ “Marvin K. Mooney Will You Please
Go Now!” (The writer once mischievously redid
it for his friend: Art Buchwald as “Richard M

- Nixon Will You Please Go Now!”) They could

sing:

“The time has come. The time has come. The
time is now. Just go...I don’t care how. You can
go by foot. You can go by cow. Hillary R Clin-
ton, will you please go now! You can go on
skates. You can go on skis. ... You can go in an
old blue shoe. Just go, go, GO!” (Maureen
Dowd, New York Times)








COBUS
has a new
president?

EDITOR, The Tribune.

THERE is a famous saying
that “all good things must come
to an end”. This saying became
a reality for students at the Col-
lege of The Bahamas. After
weeks of intense campaigning,
the executive candidates in the
2008-2009 COBUS election had
only two days to petition their
supporters to elect them for the
various positions. Even though
the election excitement was
high at The College of The
Bahamas, the mood came to an
end on March 28th at 9pm even
though there were some con-
troversies, a new President
along with executive members
were announced.

The two days of election like
previous COBUS executive
administration elections were
filled with controversy. On the
first of the election, the polling
stations were not opened on the
allotted time, students’ names
were missing from their school
registers, insufficient ballot

papers were available at one .

polling station and many other
miscellaneous activities that
caused many to question the
integrity of the election process
and the outcome. However, the
COBUS election committee
was hard at work to solve all of
these glitches and by day one
of the elections an unofficial
count of more than 900 students
had come out to cast their votes.
The number of voters who
showed up to vote was a sweep-
ing success according to mem-
bers of COBUS bécause previ-
ous elections saw declining
number of student participation
of less than 10 per cent of the
student population who decided
to vote. Why did so many stu-
dents vote during this election?
Does the turnout in the student
body voting population indicate
that the trust in the COBUS has
been restored?

Moreover, the most contro-
versial argument that one can

use to oppose the election
results was what happened on
day two of the election. The clo-

sure of the polling station at the .

Nursing campus on the final day
on the election could have had.a
major impact on the results. The
reason for this is because a large
proportion of registered nurs-
ing students who did not have
sufficient opportunity to vote
for the candidate of their choice
as other students on the main
college campus site. Also, this is
extremely sad especially when a
large number of nursing stu-
dents have expressed. concern
of feeling a sense of disassocia-
tion and neglect with regard to

_ their concerns as students.

Nevertheless, there has been
no official word of any, Presi-
dential candidates contesting
the election results. Has
COBUS’ election process
proven:to be unfair once again?

The race for COBUS Presi-
dent was a hard one for the stu-
dent body to predict with three
leading candidates namely: Mr
Delvano McIntosh, Mr Perry
Newton and Ms Shaveka
Cleare. All Presidential ‘hope-
fuls campaigned until the very
last minute but reality was final-
ly realized on.the night of
March 28th, 2008 at about
2.30am after the ballots were
counted and with a landslide
victory Mr Perry Newton was
declared the official President
of COBUS, Tavaris Sands as
Vice President and other exec-
utive members. Mr Newton has
made history as being the oldest
elected President in the history

‘of the college. This is of great

significance because many tried
to play that his age disenfran-
chised him and would result in
his defeat. However, his victory
serves as a source of hope not

only for those who are young
at heart but even for the young
people who study at COB. In
addition, his experience and
wisdom as Pastor and former
Superintendent of Police in the
Royal Bahamas Police Force is
a key component that can great-
ly assist the student body espe-
cially with the recent student
security concerns at this critical
stage in COB’s transition to the
University of The Bahamas
along with the other adminis-
trative changes that are cur-
rently underway at this time.
In conclusion, even though
the new appointees may have
seemed to have secured their
positions they would not have
to bear such responsibilities
until July 1, 2008 when they offi-
cially take office but the road
looks great ahead. However,
one responsibility that the new
administration does not have to
worry about is the long over-
due registration problem. After
several failed attempts the out-
going COBUS along with
administration has worked
together to ensure that online
registration was successful for
students for the past few days.
But, if Mr Newton continues on
the path that he is currently on
he can likely provide a powerful
and objective voice for the stu-
dent body on the College Coun-
cil which has been reported by
many former COBUS admin-
istrations as the main reason for
their inability to operate effec- :
tively to the concerns of the stu-
dent body. The future is looking
bright for the dream of our
ancestors and this present gen-
eration which is to see the
authentically Bahamian built
University of The Bahamas
with limited outside input.

FREEPORT - The Grand
Bahama Port Authority has
spent more than half a million
dollars for road improvement
projects in an effort to relieve
traffic congestion at several
intersections in Freeport.

Allison Campbell, an official

has been spent on two new road
installation projects at Britan-

FNM campaign official’s right

to vote in Marco City

@ By BRENT DEAN
Tribune Staff Reporter
bdean@tribunemedia.net

THE CHAIRMAN of the FNM’s
Marco City branch defended the
right of a party campaign ‘general’ to
vote in the constituency yesterday,
telling the Election Court that
Charles Lowe did live in the con-
stituency in the relevant period
before the election.

The court has heard testimony
from numerous witnesses brought
forward by Pleasant Bridegwater,
who stated that the number 91
Adventurers Way home Mr Lowe
registered at was abandoned or dilap-
idated at and after the last election.

Kendal Culmer Jr, who has been
the FNM Marco City chairman since

February 2008, said that he and Mr.

Lowe worked together during the
last campaign. Mr Culmer was a part
of Mr Laing’s campaign for the sev-

en to eight month period leading up
to the May 2 election.

Mr Culmer testified that he
dropped Mr Lowe off at the loca-
tion and picked him up in the morn-
ing on numerous occasions. In his
estimation, Mr Culmer told the court,
the home was livable, which contra-
dicts what other witnesses have said.

The yard was not chronically
unkempt and overgrown, according
to Mr Culmer’s testimony. Rather, he
said, it was usually kept.

From his visits to the house,
though he did not enter, Mr Culmer
said he did not notice broken doors
or windows in the front of the house,
as has been suggested in other testi-
mony.

Melinda Adderley-Davis, who is

being challenged by Ms Bridgewa-

ter, also took the witness stand yes-
terday. She currently lives in Eight
Mile Rock; however she has moved
several times over the last few years.

defended

She lived in Eight Mile Rock with
her husband and his mother in 2005,
but began to go back and forth
between Grand Bahama and Florida
for medical treatment sometime in
the middle of the year after she dis-
covered that she was pregnant. Mrs
Davis was having difficulties with the
pregnancy, she said.

Upon returning to Grand Bahama
in January 2006, the witness said she
lived with her father at 141 Dampier
Drive, which is in Marco City. She
said she lived there until after the
election, while her husband lived in
Eight Mile Rock. During the period
at Dampier Drive she also spent
some time at her mother’s residence
in North Bahamia.

She said she returned to Eight

maleneela le ECG



Mile Rock because her husband
began to insist that they all —- Mrs
Davis, their two children and him —
live under one roof.

Mrs Davis said that she lived at
Dampier Drive when she returned
because the home at Eight Mile
Rock was crowded and she felt com-
fortable at Dampier Drive.

She also said that Dampier Drive
is closer to the Rand hospital and
the airport than Eight Mile Rock.
Mrs Davis said she required follow-
up trips to doctor after she had her
baby.

Fred Smith, Mr Laing’s lead attor-
ney, will continue questioning the
witness this morning.

On Tuesday, Ms Bridgewater
dropped Monica Augustine from her
list of challenged voters. There are
now 81 challenged voters on her list

- and 23 challenged voters on the list of

Mr Laing.

MP blames
economic
problems on.
FNM govt

@ By PAUL TURNQUEST
Tribune Staff Reporter
pturnquest@tribunemedia.net

PLP MP for West End and
Bimini Obie Wilchcombe
charged yesterday that the eco-
nomic problems Bahamians are
facing are not due to the sub-
prime loan troubles in the Unit-
ed States, but rather the sub-
par performance of the FNM
government.

“External factors do not
cause you to surrender. Exter-
nal factors happen, you are to
respond with creativity, with
innovation. You are not to
abandon and blame it on some-
body else, but the truth of the
matter is that is what you we
have been doing,” Mr Wilch-
combe told the FNM in the
House of Assembly yesterday.

He also said Minister of }

Housing Kenneth Russell dis-
played hypocrisy when he
claimed that former minister
of local government Alfred
Gray did nothing while in
office.

Alleging that Mr Russell has
yet to build one house since
taking office, Mr Wilchcombe
said that as this is an Olympic
year, Mr Russell should receive
a medal for having a perfect
season.

“The issue is this Mr Deputy,
there are thousands of Bahami-

ans on a wait list looking for a

house.

“And yet they promised
3,000 houses in their same man-
ifesto that the member for
North Abaco quoted from
today,” he said.

‘Search for drowned.
migrants is closed

‘Il By MEGAN REYNOLDS

Tribune Staff Reporter

A SEARCH for the bodies of
more than 20 Haitian migrants
who drowned at sea on Saturday
was brought to a close at sunset
yesterday when no more were
found.

The Royal Bahamas Defence
Force (RBDF) retrieved the
anonymous bodies of 12 women
and 2 men who died when their
20-25ft motorboat, carrying up
to 25 people from Nassau to
Bimini, sank near the ea
Islands.

No more bodies
found by the RBDF

survived the wreck, as did a Hon-
duran man whose boat sank
when the desperate migrants
piled onto his 14ft fishing boat
as their boat was sinking.
Yesterday, the RBDF con-
cluded their four day search
which extended to Andros,
Eleuthera and the Berry Islands

Nottage addresses House on the
importance of freedom of speech

@ By KARIN HERIG
Tribune Staff Reporter
kherig@tribunemedia.net .

A WEEK after the PLP
walked out of parliament fol-
lowing the Speaker’s refusal to
allow the discussion of the Mona
Vie controversy, Dr Bernard
Nottage yesterday addressed the
House of Assembly on the
importance of freedom of |
speech.

In a special communication,
Dr Nottage, the leader of oppo-
sition business in the House, said
that freedom of speech is a prin-
ciple which the Bahamian par-
liament has upheld for the past
279 years.

“Without the exercise of this
principle, we who sit in here
today would have no legitimacy in this place,” he said.

During last week’s sitting of the House, the opposition members
walked out of parliament in protest after Speaker Alvin Smith attempt-
ed to throw out St Thomas More MP Frank Smith for discussing issues
related to the Mona Vie scandal. |

As a law suit has been filed in the case, the Sodas stated that he con-
sidered the matter to be sub judice and therefore ruled that it should not
be discussed in the House.

Earlier this month, Minister of State for Finance Zhivargo Laing’s
lawyer Fred Smith filed a defamation suit against MPs Bernard Nottage,
Frank Smith and the former Comptroller ‘of Customs John Rolle

The sub judice rule limits public discussion of matters before the court.

However, Dr Nottage told parliament } yesterday that ‘the rule was nev-

Dr Bernard Nottage



~ erintended to prev ent:a member of parliament from spéaking “to any

and all matters that are before the courts.”

“If that were so, it would make a mockery of the very foundation of

parliament and of the principle of freedom of speech,” he said.

St Thomas More MP Mr Smith last week in parliament sought to
address the concerns of his constituents regarding the law suit against
him.

Mr Smith told the House that the matter was not before the courts,
but the Speaker did not allow him to continue with the topic and
ordered him to take his seat.

After a back and forth between members of the government and
opposition side, Mr Smith rose to his feet and attempted to again speak
on the Mona Vie issue. He was ordered by the Speaker to remove
himself from the House for “disrespecting the authority of the Speak-
er.”

Dr Nottage yesterday said that while members should never com-

‘promise the integrity of a matter before the court, the rules of the

House arm the Speaker with the power of using his discretion in deter-
mining when a member has gone too far.

“Surely merely calling a member’s name who claimed to have put a
matter before the court, or getting only as far as to. make one sen-

i, tence, cainot and does not qualify as having gone too far.

“We the opposition are strongly of the view that any ruling by the
chair that prevents a member from exercising his ancient and undoubt-
ed right to speak should — no, must — be made only after the most
considered and thoughtful consideration,” he said.

boaters.

The tragedy has also brewed a
political storm, as the former
PLP government have lashed out
at the ruling FNM party for not
following through with an inter-
national agreement intended to
reduce the number of Haitians
migrating into the country.

A spokesman for the opposi-
tion party said: "The Ingraham
government has been shockingly
inept and insensitive to the need
to be proactive with regard to
the Haitian dilemma and its
impact on the Bahamas.

"Chief among these strategies
ought to be revisiting the agree-
ment between the Haitian gov-
ernment and the Bahamas nego-
tiated by the PLP which awaits
signature by the two govern-
ments."

FNM chairman Johnley Fer-
guson said the agreement,
whereby the Bahamian govern-
ment would pay for migrants to
return to Haiti, could not be
implemented while Haitians con-
tinue to escape Haiti illegally.

He said: "We found that when
they go back to Haiti they will
leave again within a week or two.
They just get on a boat and head

' west.

“Some will end up in Florida,
and some in the Bahamas.

"It is a very sad situation for
everybody, but if people want to
take the risk’ to move you
annot blame the government
of the country they pass
through."

Mr Ferguson said the expan-
sion of the RBDF in Inagua and
Mayaguana will increase sea
patrols in the southern Bahamas
and help reduce the number of
tragedies.

He said: "Until that happens
we have a problem and we need
ta recognise that it is not a polit-
ical problem, it is a problem for
the whole of the Bahamas."

Native trees planted in
Grand Bahama schools

@ By DENISE MAYCOCK
Tribune Freeport Reporter
dmaycock@tribunemedia.net

FREEPORT - In awareness of Earth Day,
the Keep Grand Bahama Clean Committee
has planted native trees at the Hugh Campbell
Primary and Tabernacle Baptist Academy.

Kim Miller, public relations officer at the
GB Port Authority, said the tree planting was
held at the schools to sensitise students to the
importance of the environment and to com-
memorate Earth Day, which is observed on
April 22.

Earth Day has been internationally .

observed since 1970 to promote awareness of
environmental issues. Today, more than 500
million people and national governments in
175' countries observe the day.

Ms Miller said that preservation of the envi-
ronment is very important. She stated that
the Grand Bahama Port Authority spear-
headed the ‘Keep Grand Bahama Clean’
Campaign in 2006, in conjunction with the
Department of Environmental Health Ser-

vices, the Urban Renewal Programme and
the Sanitation Services.

She said: “It was felt that the national tree
— the Lignum Vitae — was the best tree for the
tree planting in observation of Earth Day.”

Rico Cargill, environmental officer at the
Port Authority, said the Keep Grand Bahama
Clean Committee aims not just to keep the
environment clean, but also to bring about a
change of culture when it comes to the envi-
ronment.

Culture

“We are faced in the country with trying to
change the culture of Bahamians towards the
environment, and so want to create a complete
paradigm shift so that we as a people can
become better stewards of the environment,”
he said. .

Mr Cargill said that the Port Authority has
introduced several recycling programmes on
the island through its industrial partners and
various schools.

He noted that a used oil programme is
underway at the BORCO, and an aluminum
can recycling pilot project has started at some
schools,,

“We placed recycling bins at some schools
several months ago for the collection of alu-
minum cans. We recently turned over this
programme to another company to manage
for profit and funds will be donated back to
schools,” he said.

Mr Cargill stated that over the next several
weeks they plan to launch the recycling pro-
grammes in several communities.

“Right now, we are using the schools as a
pilot programme ‘to change culture toward
recycling. We feel that over the next five or 10
years, we want to get Bahamians toward the
point where we can be more environmentally
conscious by recycling and reusing, and cre-
ating more sustainable developments and pro-
jects. We want to address the problem, not the
symptom.

“Right now, this is a small step, but we are
hoping that it can spread on the national lev-
el,” he said. ,

BAHAMIAN students aged
eight through 12 have been invited
to participate in the 16th annual
Condé Nast Traveler, “My
Caribbean” essay contest and
speech competition.

After 15 successful years of
backing the contest, the New York
publishing giant, Condé Nast, will
once again sponsor the competi-
tion in conjunction with the .
Caribbean Tourism Organisation,
the Bahamas Ministry of Tourism
and Aviation, the Ministry of Edu-
cation, the Bahamas Hotel Asso-
ciation and the Toastmasters
organisation.

The competition “celebrates the
beauty of the Caribbean region
and the potential of its children,”
according to the magazine’s vice
president and publisher, Lisa
Hughes.

(Abaco); David Ferguson, speech 2nd place winner (Grand Bahama);
Adrianne Kelly, essay 2nd place winner (Abaco); Ferre Cambridge, essay .
1st place winner (GBI).

The 1st place winner will attend
the conference as the main com-
ponent of their grand prize. The
bigger grand prize at stake in the
British Virgin Islands is $2,000 plus
publication of the winner’s speech
in Condé Nast’s Traveler maga-
zine — a periodical with worldwide
distribution. Two runners-up will
also be selected at the CTC-13,
both receiving monetary gifts of
$500.

Entries to the competition must
be handwritten, double-spaced,
on letter-sized, lined paper and be
anywhere from 250 to 500 words —
no more, no less. Essays will be
judged on six characteristics, with
the 20 best essays being presented
in the local speech finals at the
Atlantis Resort on May 22.

The deadline for entries to
school guidance counsellors is
Monday, May 5. More informa-

of this year.

Judges will select one Bahamian
student as winner of the overall
local contest, and then he or she

and a fine dining experience for
3rd place.

Toddler’s death

died at Doctors Hospital on
August 20, 2002, five days
after he was struck by a speed-
boat which had crashed on to
the beach where he slept.
The toddler was on holiday
with his family at the Atlantis
resort on Paradise Island. The
jury was also directed to find
Evangeless Williamson not
guilty on two counts of per-
jury. Acting Justice Lockhart
told the jury to find the men
not guilty on the charges
because of what had tran-
spired in their absence.
_ As the men were being told

that they were free to go, John
McGuckion, the brother of
Andrea Gallagher - the tod-
dler’s mother - raised a
large photo of Paul Gallagher
Jr.

As Acting Justice Lockhart
was leaving the bench,
McGuckion shouted: “Justice
has died in this courtroom
today. This is a complete trav-
esty of justice.”

Paul and Andrea Gallagher,
who were also witnesses at the
trial which was into its second
week, were not present when
the verdicts were handed
down yesterday but were back
at their hotel room, according
to McGuckion, who gave a

statement on their behalf out-
side court.

“Today’s verdict has been a
miscarriage of justice. Justice
has not been delivered today
and this Supreme Court trial
here in Nassau has dealt a
body blow to the law of the
land and the good people of
the Bahamas,” McGuckion
said.

Following the death of their
son, the Gallaghers embarked
on a campaign for justice
which ultimately led to
charges being brought against
Bain, 30, the speedboat dri-
ver, Nottage, 54, and
Williamson, 66 - the owners
of the boat.

schools outreach programme raising aware-
ness of child sexual abuse and violence.
She said: “This material is really horrific
and it is well known that viewing violence
increases violence, and can lead to emo-
tional desensitisation to violence, so view-
ing of this kind will prevent young people
from developing the emotional tools they
need to become good citizens and be the
kind of people we want to live in our

world.”

She added: “I think technology has pro-
pelled our children into a minefield and
they really do not realise the implications it

has.

“When they are capable of understand-
ing what they have done, they will look
back and ask why didn't anybody warn us?
We have to confront it and do what we

can to protect our children.”

Dr Patterson believes the activity, stems
from a normal teenage compulsion to take
risks and push boundaries, but increased
exposure to an adult world through
advances in technology has made their

behaviour more damaging.

She said: “Our children are pretty vul-
nerable because so many of them grow up
without proper supervision, at home and in
school, so they are being raised by their
peer group and get involved in this behav-
iour which is so self-destructive.”

The unsolved murders have received significant
media attention with many calling for police to
intensify their investigations and bring the killer or
killers before the courts.

On Tuesday, Police Commissioner Reginald
Ferguson told The Tribune both cases were still

from the public.

Obie Wilchcombe hits out over
alleged firing of social workers

m@ By PAUL TURNQUEST
Tribune Staff Reporter

PLP MP Obie Wilchcombe lashed out at the alleged firing of
45 social workers from the Ministry of Social Services in the
House of Assembly yesterday.

“These people were working, you would get a return on your
investment,” he said, raising the question of whether the public
is getting an adequate return on the 20- plus Cabinet ministers it
is paying for under the FNM.

The debate became heated at this point, as members of the
opposition and the government began speaking across the floor
from their seats, and the Deputy Speaker had to call for the
House to come to order.

“We must not have illusions of democracy where you start to
speak and then you are stopped from speaking because members
on this side are saying, the cost of electricity is going up, the cost
of oil is going up, commodity prices all over the world are
going up ‘between 80 and 100 per cent,” Mr Wilchcombe con-
tinued.

“Prices continue to be sky high and the only HDS that has
gone down is the cost of Mona Vie,” he said.

Numbers of Kirtland’s warblers
in New Providence double in 2008

@ Report and
Photographs
By LIONEL LEVINE



A LITTLE over a year ago
I was able to report in your
columns that there had been
sighting of the rarest of
Bahamian birds, the Kirt-
land’s Warbler (Dendroica
kirtlandii) in New Provi-
dence.

It was a rare sighting. The
bird summers and nests
amongst the young Jack
Pines in Michigan and win-
ters almost exclusively in the
Bahamas. There are only
some thousands of these
birds. In Michigan they
attempt each May to estimate
from the bird song the num-
ber of pairs of birds prepar-
ing to nest.

Nevertheless the bird in
rarely sighted in the
Bahamas. Occasionally it is
observed in Abaco and
Eleuthera but there had not
been a reported sighting of a
Kirtland’s Warbler on this
island for over a hundred
years It was thought that
amongst all the development
on New Providence there was
no remaining habitat for a
bird that was known in
Michigan to be choosy both
as to its food and the small
size of the young Jack Pine
trees beneath which it could
nest.

Winters

But that is Michigan and
this is the Bahamas. It is
becoming apparent that the
bird leads quite a different
life style when it winters
here. None of the Kirtland’s
Warblers we have seen in
Eleuthera, Abaco and now in
New Providence made its
habitat in or near to pines.

Last year a single bird was
found by chance in Central
New Providence and
although the area was “gone
over” for a couple of days
only one Kirtland’s Warbler
put in an appearance. He was
a handsome male as readers

would have seen for them-
selves from the photographs
I took and you published.

Kirtland’s'Warblers are
noticeably larger than most
other warblers and their
slightly larger size seems to
make them less timid. If not
tame they are positively curi-
ous and seek to pose for the
camera in the open perched
high in bushes and trees par-
ticularly in the Spring when
they are foraging for berries
to build up strength for their
long migration flight back to
Michigan.

The males have blue grey
heads and backs and vivid
yellow undersides all with
black streaking. A field iden-
tification feature is that the
top and bottom white eye-
ring is broken at the sides.

I am able to report that last
week our team of three Paul
Dean Lee Hanna and myself
were able to see two Kirt-
land’s Warblers in the same
location. So the New Provi-
dence population has dou-
bled and there may have
been others in the vicinity.



.Both birds seen were male.
The first one sighted caught.

Paul’s attention by his calls
continuing almost without a
break. He was. maturer and
bigger and more brightly
feathered. Just possibly it
might have been the same
bird we saw last year.

Unique

If so he brought back with
him last autumn at least one
other bird to join in his
colony. The second bird dis-
covered nearby was a
younger male, possibly in its
first year. However this
young bird was unique. He
did not just call but he kept
repeating his full warbler
summer song. He was proba-
bly practicing to be note per-
fect next month in Michigan.

For Paul Dean that was a
first. He has never heard a
Kirtland’s Warbler in full
song in the Bahamas before
nor does he know of any pre-
vious report of this: He was
quick to tape the song. So if



anyone knows of a previous

‘report of a Kirtland’s in full

song in the Bahamas please
let us know.

I was quick to get pho-
tographs of both birds on my
new Canon 1Ds Mk III which
I was taking out on its first
experimental run. One pho-
tograph is alongside this arti-
cle. .
So both birds were first
identified by sound. They
were not found by being
trapped in mist nets nor
homed in on a radio beam.
They were nor attracted with
tape recordings. Neither of
the two birds were banded
nor was the bird last year.
Long may that remain so.

They seemed well fed and
ready for their flight North
which is hard enough even
without both legs laden with
numerous bands and a trans-
mitter on the back. So good
luck and we hope you return
this autumn with friend or
relatives and do not find your
habitat overtaken by a sub-
division.

Oh, to be born free.

Rising food prices, invasive species in
_ focus at plant health directors meeting

At a time when countries the world over are
developing strategies to deal with the chal-
lenges brought on by rising food prices and
the real threat of food shortage, Caribbean
plant health officials will meet this week to
discuss positioning themselves to positively
contribute to the issue of rising food prices.

In this inaugural meeting, regional plant
health officials from across the Caribbean are
expected to engage in discussions on issues of
access to and availability of food.

They say they will strategise on how to for-
mulate the movement of plant and plant prod-
ucts across Caribbean countries.

The meeting, at the CARICOM Secretariat
headquarters in Guyana, js being hosted by
the Secretariat in partnership with the United
States Department of Agriculture Animal and
Plant Health Inspection Service (USDA
APHIS), the Inter-American Institute for Co-
operation on-Agriculture (IICA), the Food
and Agriculture Organisation of the United
Nations (FAO) and CIRAD.

“There is tremendous potential for trade in
plant and plant products in the Caribbean but
the issue of plant pests is one which poses seri-
ous constraints to that potential for trade.
Therefore the focus is oni seeking to find solu-
tions for more effective prevention, manage-
ment and control strategies for pest threats in
the region,” said Ms Margaret Kalloo, deputy

programmer manager for agriculture al the
CARICOM Secretariat.

She added that while countries are seeking to
improve availability and access to food, coun-
tries need to be enabled to “more efficiently
and effectively move agricultural products
across the borders of the Caribbean countries.”

In this regard the issue. of invasive species
will be on the front burner as these continue to
negatively impact on trade in plant and plant
products in the Caribbean.

In the not too distant past, Caribbean couni-
tries were faced with an outbreak of Pink
Hibiscus Mealybug (PHMB) which devastated
crops such as okras, papaya and sorrel. The
countries have also had to deal with infesta-
tions of fruit flies which impact on the export
of most fruits. The outbreak of Black Sigatoka
continues to be a source of concern for banana

_ producers.

Currently, Caribbean countries are faced
with a serious attack on palms, including
coconut trees with the outbreak of the Red
Palm Mite.

This has adversely affected the domestic
trade in and national consumption of coconut
water as prices have increased as a result of
decreased production.

A proposal to deal with the issue of invasive
species will be presented to the meeting, organ-
isers say.

Delta reports $6.4b loss in My Bahamas tour uncovers
first quarter on fuel costs ©



@ ATLANTA

DELTA Air Lines Inc., the
nation’s third-largest carrier, said
Wednesday its loss widened in
the first quarter to a whopping
$6.39 billion because of soaring
fuel prices and the steep decline
in the company’s market value,
according to Associated Press.

The results badly missed Wall
Street expectations, despite a 12
percent increase in sales.

The Atlanta-based company
said the loss is equivalent to
$16.15 a share. That compares
with a loss of $130 million that
Delta reported in the year-ago
January-March quarter, when it
was still in bankruptcy.

Excluding special items, pri-
marily a $6.1 billion non-cash
charge relating to the decline in
Delta’s market value due to sus-
tained record fuel prices, the air-
line lost $274 million, or 69 cents
a share, in the first quarter.

Analysts were expecting a
Delta loss of 49 cents a share,
excluding one-time items.

Revenue in the quarter rose
to $4.77 billion, compared with
$4.24 billion recorded in the

shares rose 10 cents in premar-
ket trading to $6.90, just off a
52-week low of $6.70.

Delta said its first-quarter loss
before special items was driven
by a $585 million year-over-year
increase in the cost of fuel.

Delta’s shares have fallen
nearly 69 percent since the air-
line emerged from Chapter 11
on April 30, 2007.

Delta announced April 14
that it has agreed to acquire
Northwest Airlines Corp. in a
stock-swap deal that, if approved
by regulators and shareholders,
would create the world’s largest
airline. Northwest was also
scheduled to release first-quarter
results Wednesday.

“Our need to respond to the
pressures of dramatically rising
fuel costs and a softening U.S.
economy drove us to take a clos-
er look at all options to protect
Delta’s future,” Chief Executive
Richard Anderson said in a
statement.

“The merger with Northwest
will create an airline with the
size, scale and global presence to
weather economic downturns
and compete long-term in the

MINISTRY of Tourism and

long list of Inagua’s best kept
secrets this week during a
three-day media trip that was
part of the My Bahamas cam-
paign.

“Even as director general,
there are still some surprises,
and Inagua is coming through
with them right away,”
Tourism Director General
Vernice Walkine said on her
first day on the island.

Ms Walkine told a gather-
ing of Inaguans that she would
spend her time on the island
learning about Inagua’s
unique features. She said she
and her staff would look for
opportunities to promote the
island and to suggest ideas for
developing it in ways that are
appropriate to its special char-
acteristics.

west, and some residents
believe the island’s mountain-
ous neighbours have shielded
it from the worst effects of
hurricanes.

Some have Siagested that
the publicising Inagua’s hur-
ricane avoidance record
should encourage businesses
and tourism developments to
be established on the island.

Island Administrator Pre-

ston Cunningham is among
those who believe businesses
could find Inagua attractive.

“Inagua may have had
maybe two hurricanes in the
last 100 years,” he said. “Hur-
ricanes don’t strike here, and
that in itself is a plus.”

Mr Cunningham pointed out
that Inagua also has a large
variety of wildlife which



Derek Smith/BIS

inhabits huge tracts of unde-
veloped land. Many Bahami-
ans do not realise that Inagua
is the country’s third largest
island with 599 square miles
of terrain.

The island is also home to
one of last three kerosene
lighthouses still operating in
the Bahamas.

Mr Cunningham said Inagua





needs to increase the number
of hotel rooms it offers.

“J figure once the rooms are
available, then the Ministry of
Tourism would be in a posi-
tion to properly market
Peaeus as they would need

he said. “You would
aeisand that once you
begin to market, then you
must be in a position to
accommodate. So you must
make sure then that these
rooms are available.”

Charity Armbrister, direc-
tor for the Family Islands in
the Ministry of Tourism and
Aviation, said she saw poten-
tial for developing Inagua’s
nature tourism.

“Obviously, Inagua, like the
song says, is one of the best

_ kept secrets,” she said. “But I

think that while we maintain it

“as one of the best kept secrets,

there are too many opportu-
nities that we have not
embraced. J think this would
be a great trip for school kids
in particular to come and learn
about the National Park here
in Inagua.”

‘Ministry of Tourism and
Aviation recently held
Bahamahost sessions in
Inagua, but Ms Armbrister
said there is a need for more
training.

Ministry officials will have
to focus on increasing the
number of tour guides that are
able to conduct high-quality
tours for visitors on the island,
she said.

‘In addition to Inagua, the

campaign has taken media
representatives to Long Island

Four vehicle crash sees

two police officers,
SU IEMMEL Camm Ute)



TWO police officers and a woman had to
be taken to hospital yesterday after a police
vehicle ended up on top of a pick-up truck fol-
lowing a crash involving four vehicles.

The incident occurred around 12.45pm when
officers responding to a firearms complaint
struck a grey Toyota Camry which allegedly
pulled out in their path as they travelled on
Robinson Road.

As a result of this collision the pales vehicle
mounted a red truck, also damaging a bur-
gundy vehicle parked next to the truck, which

in turn was pushed into a nearby grey Nissan
Bluebird.

No passengers were reported to have been in
those cars at the time, but the police officers
involved were placed on stretchers and one

female passenger from the Toyota suffered a

facial wound.

All were taken to hospital.

Asst Supt Shannador Evans said the male
driver of the Toyota, who is alleged to have
been responsible for the incident, removed the
licence disc from the car and fled on foot.

porations to overcome financial and operational
hurdles facing the organisations, Minister of
State for Utilities Phenton Neymour disclosed.
The news follows confirmation that Leon
Williams, president of the government-owned

telecoms company BTC, has been asked to resign.”

While stressing that no “formal decision” had
been made to date on possible high level restruc-
turing, Minister Neymour dismissed speculation
that certain BEC executives were asked to resign
or be transferred to WSC amid rumblings of an
internal shake-up at BEC.

“We have been reviewing the structure of both
the Water and Sewage Corporation and BEC to
see where the management team can be enhanced
and how the structure can be improved. But no
formal decision has been made to date,” Mr Ney-
mour said during an interview with The Tribune.

While acknowledging there were some mat-
ters concerning financial irregularities and losses
at BEC, Mr Neymour said the evaluation is
geared towards making the hemorrhaging utility
company more efficient.

“This (review) has to do with the performance
of the organisation, we are looking at ways to
make it more efficient. As energy is becoming
more and more costly we have to look at weve to
make BEC more efficient.

“In regards to BEC, I have stated over the last
year that (it) has faced a number of challenges
both operationally and financially...and their

financial situation is going downhill and the gov-
ernment is seriously looking at (how to address)
this.”

Both utility companies have been criticised
recently for significant financial losses.

In his mid-year budget report in March, Mr
Neymour said BEC’s losses for the 2006/2007 fis-

_.cal year - which énded on September 30, 2007 -~

are expected to total $10.2 million.

He also said initial reports indicated losses in
the 2007/2008 fiscal year could reach $11 million.
The government-run electricity company has also
come under heavy criticism for frequent power
outages in the capital and Harbour Island.

During the same address, Minister Neymour
said WSC was. in a “seriously sad position” and
was operating under “cash flow restraints and
gross indebtedness to vendors”.

BEC general manager Kevin Basden said he
was not aware of any employees being asked to
resign and said that “no changes have occurred in
the corporation”.

When asked if he anticipated any high-level
restructuring in the near future, he replied: “Well,
I can't speak to what may or may not happen. I
mean, in any organisations there may be changes
from time to time, who knows what the future

holds? But I am telling you even if there are.

rumours out there that persons have been forced

‘to resign or no longer hold their positions that's

not correct.”

Attempts to secure a comment from WSC gen-
eral manager Godfrey Sherman were unsuccess-
ful up to press time.

Brazil rescuers
Say missing
priest's chances
of survival fading

@ SAO PAULO, Brazil

HOPES for finding a priest
who disappeared after soaring
into the air with hundreds of
colorful balloons are growing
slimmer, rescue officials said
Wednesday, according to Asso-
ciated Press.

Roman Catholic Rev. Adelir
Antonio de Carli has been miss-
ing since Sunday, when he lifted
off from the port city of
Paranagua wearing a helmet,
an aluminum thermal flight suit,
waterproof coveralls and a
parachute. He was seeking to
break a record for the longest
time in-flight with helium-filled
party balloons.

Rescuers in boats, planes and
helicopters continued to search
off Brazil’s southern coast, near
where a cluster of yellow,
orange, pink and white balloons
was found floating in the
Atlantic close to where de Car-
li’s was when he last made con-
tact.

“It is getting harder to hold
on to our optimism,” said John-
ny Coelho, commander of the
Penha Fire Department, which
is searching for the priest. “The
possibilities of finding him alive
are beginning to get smaller and
smaller as each day passes.”

Coelho said some 30 fire
department rescue workers
were also scouring the “thick,
almost impenetrable forests”
covering several 1,300-foot
(400-meter) mountains along
the coast.

But de Carli’s parishioners
remained optimistic.

“We are more confident than
ever they will find him alive,”
Sao Cristovao’parish treasurer
Denise Gallas said. “Hope is
always the last thing to die.”

taught de Carli three years ago
called the priest’s disappear-
ance a “tragedy foretold.”

Marcio Andre Lichtnow
described the 41-year-old priest
as a “headstrong, anxious indi-
vidual who was always in a rush
to get things done.”

“After two or three months,
I asked him to abandon the
course because of these per-
sonality traits, which are not the
ideal profile for a paraglider,”

*Lidhtnow said by telephone.
“So what happened comes as
no pig surprise.”

ichtnow also said de Carli
phoned him days before liftoff.

“T told him that the winds
would carry him all the way to
South Africa,” Lichtnow said.
“He said he had studied every-
thing very carefully and that he
would go ahead. I honestly
thought he was joking.”

‘ De Carli hoped to break a
19-hour flight record and raise
money for a “spiritual” rest-
stop for truckers in Paranagua.

Searchers reached the float-
ing balloons late Tuesday but
there was no sign of the priest,
the Air Force said on its Web
site.



SOME 2,500 participants
flocked to the Montagu Beach
last weekend to join in Atlantic
Medical’s 10th annual ‘Fun
Walk’.

The Bahamas Diabetic
Association and the Bahamas
Cancer Society once again
took part this year, in what was
the biggest ‘Fun Walk’ ever.

Last year more than $36,000
was donated to the two organ-
isations from the event, and
they will again be the benefi-
ciaries of the proceeds.

This year’s overall winner
was Raymond “Breaker”
Rudol. Special mention went
to the Misiewicz family, all of
whom have participated in the
Atlantic Medical Fun Walk for
the past nine years.

Both Misiewicz children
placed in the under 15 catego-
ry, with the family’s son win-
ning and the daughter placing
fifth.

The oldest male and female
walkers, Robert Elliot and
Rosalind Thompson, both 78,
received complimentary Com-
monwealth Drugs gift baskets.

The group award winners in
the 500 plus participants cate-
gory were the staff of the
Bahamas Telecommunications
Company. Group award win-
ners in the less than 500 par-
ticipants category were the
employees of the Common-
wealth Bank. The Central
Bank of the Bahamas placed
second, with the National
Insurance Board coming in at
third place.

The main objective of the
Walk, said Darren Bastian,
senior marketing executive at
Atlantic‘Medical, is “to encour-
age and to create an increased
awareness of living healthy.”

“In our business we often
see a number of lifestyle dis-
eases that can sometimes be
avoided or controlled through
proper diet and exercise. It is
our hope that this event
encouraged the public at large
to ‘walk-the walk’ when it

\comes to living healthy consis-.

tently,” he said.

Corporate organisations,
churches, and individuals from
all walks of life followed the
route from Montagu Beach
heading west on Shirley Street

and turning north on Church

Street over the new Paradise
Island Bridge. The group then
made their way east of the
bridge to the Paradise Island
Golf Course before heading
back to their starting point via
the old Paradise Island Bridge.

Several of the participants

. walked away with prizes.

RATION cards. Genetical-

pile-it-high, sell-it-cheap super-
markets.

These possible solutions to
the first global food crisis since
World War II — which the
World Food Program says

- already threatens ,20 million of

the poorest children — are
complex and controversial.
And they may not even solve
the problem as demand con-
tinues to soar, according to the
Associated Press.

A “silent tsunami” of hunger
is sweeping the world’s most
desperate nations, said Josette
Sheeran, the WFP’s executive
director, speaking Tuesday at a
London summit on the crisis.

The skyrocketing cost of
food staples, stoked by rising
fuel prices, unpredictable
weather and demand from
India and China, has already
sparked sometimes violent
protests across the Caribbean,
Africa and Asia.

than doubled in the last five::

weeks, she said. The World
Bank estimates food prices

EXECUTIVE DIRECTOR of the United Nations World Food Program, Josette Sheeran, third from left, attends a meeting of food producers, retailers and consumers to deal
with the growing world food crisis, at 10 Downing Street in London, Tuesday, April 22, 2008. Food aid for some 20 million of the world’s poorest children will have to be
cut even if rich nations provide emergency funds to relieve pressure from the rapidly spiraling cost of rice, wheat and other staples, Sheeran said Tuesday.

warns of the coming

“What we are seeing now is
affecting more people on every
continent,” Sheeran told a
news.conference.

Hosting talks with Sheeran,
lawmakers and experts, British
Prime Gordon Brown said the
spiraling prices threaten to
plunge millions back into
poverty and reverse progress
on alleviating misery in the
developing world.

“Tackling hunger is a moral
challenge to each of us and it is
also a threat to the political and
economic stability of nations,”
Brown said.

minister is already under pres-

Nepal expels
climber with
Free Tibet’ banner
from Everest

@ KATMANDU, Nepal

AN AMERICAN moun-
tain climber with a “Free
Tibet” banner was forced to
turn back from Mount Ever-
est, which Chinese climbers
carrying the Olympic torch
plan to summit next month,
officials said Wednesday,
according to Associated
Press.

The climber was caught
with the banner in his bags
at Everest’s base camp, said
officials at the Tourism Min-
istry in Nepal’s capital, Kat-
mandu. The officials spoke
on condition of anonymity
because they are not autho-
rized to speak to reporters.

Katmandu-based
Himalayan Guides Treks
and Expeditions, which got
the permit for the climber,
identified him as William
Brant Holland but was not
able to give details on his
age or hometown.

The government has
issued a notice to the agency
seeking clarification on the
incident, said Umid Bhan-
dari, an employee with the
expedition company.

It was not clear what the
government would do about
Holland’s case once he
returned to Katmandu. Offi-
cials said he would proba-
bly be banned from moun-
taineering in Nepal for the
next few years.

Holland is the first moun-
taineer to be stopped by sol-
diers and policemen sta-
tioned on the Nepalese side
of the world’s highest moun-
tain to prevent anti-China
protests during the planned
torch run to the summit.

The climb will take place
on the Chinese side of the
mountain. But the Nepalese
government, complying with
pressure from the Chinese
government, has posted sol-
diers on the southern side
and banned climbing near
the summit between May 1-
10 as a precaution.

Police and soldiers have
been ordered to stop any
protest on the mountain
using whatever means nec-
essary, including use of
weapons, ‘although the use
of deadly force is authorized
only as a last resort.

The torch relay — the
longest in Olympic history
— was meant to highlight
China’s rising economic and
political power. But activists
have seized on it as a plat-
form to protest China’s
human rights record. It has
drawn particular ire from
those denouncing China’s
rule in Tibet following a a
crackdown on demonstra-
tions in the Himalayan
region in March.

There are already dozens _

of mountaineers on Everest
for the popular spring
climbing season. Climbers
spend weeks acclimatizing
and making practice
runs up the slopes before
attempting the 29,035-foot
summit.

Darfur conflict

G ‘ . 9
getting worse’ |

@ By EDITH M. LEDERER
United Nations

THE CONFLICT in Darfur
is getting worse, with full
deployment of a new peace-
keeping force delayed until
2009 and no prospect of a polit-
ical settlement for a war that
has killed perhaps 300,000 peo-
ple in five years, U.N. officials
said Tuesday, according to the
Associated Press.

In grim reports to the Secu-
rity Council, the United
Nations aid chief and the rep-
resentative of the peacekeep-

‘ ing mission said suffering in the

Sudanese region is deteriorat-
ing. Tens of thousands more
have been uprooted from their
homes and food rations to the
needy are about to be cut in
half, they said.

“We continue to see the goal
posts receding, to the point
where peace in Darfur seems
further away today than ever,”
said John Holmes, undersecre-
tary-general for humanitarian
affairs.

The conflict began in early
2003 when ethnic African
rebels took up arms against
Sudan’s Arab-dominated cen-
tral government, accusing it of
discrimination. Many of the
worst atrocities in the war have
been blamed on the janjaweed
militia of Arab nomads allied
with the government.

A joint U.N.-African Union
peacekeeping force took over
duties in Darfur in January
from a beleaguered 7,000-man
AU mission. But only about
9,000 soldiers and police offi-
cers of the authorized 26,000
have deployed.

“We are late and we are try-
ing to speed up the deployment
of this mission, and we facing
many obstacles,” said the U.N.-
AU force’s envoy, Rodolphe

UN report says that

some 300,000 dead
in five-year conflict

Adada. “But eventually, with
the help of some donors, we
could be in a position to achieve
maybe 80 percent of the force
by the end of this year.”

The mission faces major
problems in putting troops into
a very hostile environment,
Adada said. It still lacks five
critical capabilities to become
operational — attack heli-
copters, surveillance aircraft,
transport helicopters, military
engineers and logistical support.

Holmes said further progress

in deploying the joint peace-

keeping force, known as
UNAMID, would help protect
civilians and possibly humani-
tarian convoys.

“But only an end to all vio-
lence and. concrete steps
towards a political settlement
will make the fundamental dif-
ference needed, as the rebei
movements themselves above
all need to recognize,” Holmes
said. “Otherwise the reality is
that the people of Darfur face a
continued steady deterioration
of their conditions of life and
their chances of lasting recov-
ery.”

The U.N. and AU have tried
for months to open new peace
talks between Sudan and rebel
groups following the failure of a
2005 agreement to stem vio-
lence. But most rebel chiefs are
boycotting the negotiations, and

-security in Darfur has further

deteriorated in recent months.
Adada ‘told the council that
“unfortunately, it is commonly




understood today in Darfur that

_ peace is not at all attractive —

neither economically nor polit-
ically.”

Darfur’s main rebel chief said
Tuesday he told Security Coun-
cil representatives last month
that no peace talks can be held
until security is restored.

“Wrong negotiations will
only complicate the matter and
prolong the suffering of the
people of Darfur,” Abdulwahid.

Elnur, head of the Sudan Lib-

eration Movement, told The
Associated Press during.an
interview in Paris, where he
lives in exile.

-When former U.N. humani-
tarian chief Jan Egeland
brought the Darfur conflict to
the Security Council’s attention
in April 2004, he said approxi-

mately 750,000 people were in -

danger.

Today, Holmes told the
council, “of Darfur’s estimated
6 million people, some 4.27 mil-
lion have now been seriously
affected by the conflict,” includ-
ing deaths and injuries, uproot-
ing from homes, illness and
hunger. rc

He said 2.45 million people
who fled their homes are shel-
tering eisewhere in Sudan and
260,000 more took refuge in
neighboring countries. Some
100,000 civilians have been
forced to flee just this year,
Holmes said. Some 60,000 of
them were displaced in West

Darfur, which has seen an,
. upsurge in violence.





















HUNDREDS of protesters raise their painted hands as they gather out-
side Sudanese Embassy in London for a rally calling for the end of cri-
sis in Darfur and to mark the 5th anniversary of the start of the crisis in
Darfur, Sunday, April 13; 2008.

POLITICAL ROW OVER DECISION TO MAKE DALAT LAMA HONORARY CITIZEN

Paris draws China’s wrath even as
France tries to smooth things over

m@ By STEVEN ERLANGER
PARIS

China stepped into an inter-
nal French political spat on
Tuesday, fiercely condemning
a decision by Paris’ Socialist
city council to make the Dalai
Lama an honorary citizen of
Paris, according to the New
York Times News Service.

“China expresses its strong
dissatisfaction and resolute
opposition” to the honor, said
the Foreign Ministry spokes-
woman, Jiang Yu. “This act
of crude interference in Chi-
na’s domestic affairs has seri-
ously damaged the Sino-
French relationship, and in

particular the existing friendly
ties between Paris and Bei-
jing.”

Not only that, Jiang said,
but also, “to make the Dalai
an ‘honorary citizen of Paris’
now can only be considered
as another grave provocation
of 1.3 billion Chinese people,
including the people of Tibet,
and it will further encourage
the arrogance of the Dalai and
Tibet independence ele-
ments.”

The attention Beijing has
now provided will no doubt
please the newly re-elected
mayor of Paris, Bertrand
Delanoe, who is running hard

protest outside a Carrefour supermaket in Hefei, central China’s Anhui province, Saturday, April 19, 2008.
China denounced a decision by the Paris city council to bestow honorary citizenship on the Dalai Lama, say-
ing Tuesday the move was “another insult” that would harm diplomatic relations. Anti-French sentiment has
been growing in China since the Beijing Olympics torch relay was disrupted by protests during a chaotic leg

in Paris on April 7.

Socialist Party, which is in dis-
array after losing the presi-
dency a year ago to Nicolas
Sarkozy and the right.

The gesture allowed Dela-
noe to distinguish himself
from Sarkozy, who has waf-
fled about whether he will
attend the opening ceremony
of the Olympic Games on
Aug. 8 or boycott it in protest.

Sarkozy is under pressure
from French businessmen who
are deeply involved in the Chi-
nese economy. The large
supermarket chain Carrefour
has 112 stores and 2 million
customers in China and has
already been a target for large
Chinese protests, both insti-
gated and not, of the some-
times violent scenes that met
the Olympic. torch in the
streets of Paris on April 7.

LVMH Moet Hennessy-Louis
Vuitton, whose products are
popular with moneyed Chi-
nese, told the newspaper Le
Figaro that he understood
“why the Chinese population
could be affected by the
attacks against its country.”

There have been several
days of anti-France protests
aimed at French companies,
and an Internet-led boycott of
French goods. The Chinese
have disseminated photos of
a Chinese woman athlete in a
wheelchair, carrying the torch,
accosted by a Parisian pro-
tester in a Tibetan hat.

Sarkozy, who led a large
delegation of French busi-
nessmen to China in Novem-
ber, has said that his atten-
dance at the opening ceremo-
ny will depend on whether
China reopens dialogue with
the Dalai Lama, while For-
eign Minister Bernard Kouch-
ner, a human-rights activist in
his youth, has said that “for-
eign policy cannot be reduced
to human rights.”

But in another effort to
dampen Chinese reaction,
Sarkozy also wrote a letter of
apology to the wheelchair-
bound athlete, Jin Jing, offer-
ing sympathy and saying that
he condemned this “painful
moment” in the “strongest
possible terms.” The note was
hand-delivered in Shanghai by
the president of the French
Senate, Christian Poncelet. Jin
was reportedly unimpressed,

’ and Sarkozy appeared to be

kowtowing more to French
commercial interests than to
Beijing. But he was not in the
front lines defending the Dalai
Lama — unlike Mr. Delanoe.

On Sunday, the newly
accredited Chinese ambas-
sador to France, Kong Quan,
tried in vain to dissuade the
City Council, saying that the
vote could “damage the trust,
friendship and cooperative
relations” between the coun-
tries and “worsen the situa-
tion in Tibet.”

istry spokeswoman, Pascale

Andreani, was quick to issue
her own statement on Tues-
day, saying that Paris acted on
its own and implying that
cities do not have foreign poli-
cies. “It is not our place to
interfere with a decision taken
by the city of Paris,” she said.
“Local authorities are fully
independent, and therefore
what towns and municipalities
do is their own responsibili-
ty.”
Sarkozy is sending two oth-
er emissaries to Beijing to
reassure the Chinese — his
diplomatic adviser, Jean-
David Levitte, the former
ambassador to Washington
and the United Nations, and
Jean-Pierre Raffarin, a former
prime minister. The Chinese
traditionally see such emis-
saries as a form of tribute.

In their'own demonstra-
tions, the ‘Chinese called
Napoleon “a pervert” and
Joan of Arc a “prostitute,” but
no apologies have so far been
forthcoming.

China may have another
motive, which is to send a
strong message more broad-
ly. France takes over the six-
month rotating presidency of
the European Union on July 1
and will be in charge of diplo-
matic relations between the
27-country bloc and China
during the Olympics.

“Increasing the pressure on
France is a way for China to
warn Paris against any temp-
tation of taking a bold stance
during the French presiden-
cy,” said Valerie Niquet, direc-
tor of the Asia Institute at the
French Institute of Interna-
tional Relations.

Delanoe defended the vote.
“If Paris doesn’t express its
attachment to values, it’s too
bad,” he said. “Between a
good conscience and cynicism
there’s defending one’s con-
victions.”

In brief

Diplomats: US
compromises
on nuclear
technology
experts

H By GEORGE JAHN
VIENNA, Austria

FACING international oppo-
sition, US negotiators at a
nuclear meeting have dropped
their insistence on a ban of ura-
nium enrichment technology to
non-nuclear states, diplomats
said Tuesday, according to Asso-
ciated Press.

The compromise, which
moves America closer to the
positions of other nations sell-
ing nuclear technology and
material, is important because it
could give ammunition to Iran,
which is under U.N. sanctions
for. defying a Security Council
demand that it give up its enrich-
ment program.

It also could complicate efforts
to put life into a U.S.-Indian deal
that would allow transfers of sen-
sitive nuclear technology to New
Delhi, even though it remains
outside of the Nuclear Nonpro-
liferation Treaty.

The diplomats, who demand-
ed anonymity because their
information was confidential,
said the new U.S. position was
discussed at a Vienna meeting
of the 45-nation Nuclear Supphi-
ers Group, whose gatherings are
meant to set and monitor com-
mon policies on exports of sen-
sitive atomic hardware and
knowledge.

No decision was reached at
the meeting, which ended Tues-
day, said one of the diplomats,
adding that any agreement must
be made by consensus and that
the issue was deferred to the
group’s next full session in Berlin
starting May 19.

While the U.S. had moved
closer to positions favored by
most of the other NSG nations,
the diplomat suggested there
was still a ways to go if that con-
sensus was to be achieved. Still,
he said, Washington appeared
to be prepared for further com-
promise.

“The U.S. will go back to
Washington with some amend-
ments, with some comments we
put forward,” he said. “The aim
is to have a broad discussion in
Berlin.”

The U.S. decision to drop its
insistence on a ban was forced
primarily by Canada, which has
large reserves of uranium and
reserves the right to start up
‘enrichment programs for lucra-
tive export sales, the diplomats
said.

Any ban, as originally
demanded by the U.S., would
thus present an obstacle to
Canadian ambitions to possess
its own enrichment capabilities.

The Americans, however,
apparently remained firm in
their opposition to any transfers
of technology that is replicable
and would allow receiving states
to copy it and create their own
program. A Canadian govern-
ment statement issued while the
meeting was still ongoing indi-
cated that that was the case.

“While we welcome the U.S.
proposal on nuclear enrichment
and reprocessing, the proposal
does not address all of Canada’s
concerns as a nuclear nonprolif-
eration treaty party with impec-
cable nonproliferation creden-
tials and a significant nuclear
industry,” said Foreign Affairs
spokesman Andre Lemay. “We
will continue to work, with all
parties in a nuclear supplies
group to find an acceptable solu-
tion.”

A participant in the meeting
said the United States favored
the “black box approach” that
gives other nations the tech-
nologies without knowing how
they work.

Canada wants the right to
develop its own enrichment
technology, and a ban on exports
of replicable material — or the
“black box approach” — would
hurt it in this regard.

Other regional powers, such
as Brazil, Argentina and South
Africa, also have indicated a pos-
sible interest in selling enriched
uranium fuel.

With nuclear power under-
going a rebirth, additional coun-
tries might seek to join the club,
a development that could lead
to dozens developing enrichment
programs and strengthen Iran’s
claim that it has the right as an
NPT signatory to its own enrich-
ment activities.

The U.S. shift also could hurt
the chances that India can cut a
deal with the suppliers group
giving it greater access to nuclear
technology even though it
remains outside the NPT.

Unusual circumstances some-
times require unusual plays. For a
typical example, consider this deal
where West leads the K-A and an-
other diamond. East ruffs and returns
a club, covered by the queen, king
and ace.

It is true that South would have
failed to make the contract if East
had held the jack of hearts. In fact, he
would have gone down two instead
of one by finessing the ten. But this
would not in any way change the
inherent correcmess of the finesse,
which under the circumstances

Tax policy haunts
Brown as vote on
budget approaches

Political crisis threatens

lm By ALAN COWELL
LONDON

At the time, it seemed like a
political masterstroke, the kind
of move that inspired Tony
Blair to label his successor, Gor-
don Brown, a “great clunking
fist” in the bruising jousts of the
British Parliament, reports the
New York Times News Service.

But now Brown’s surprise
announcement in March 2007
that he was lowering an income
tax rate has struck back venge-
fully, prompting a political crisis
that threatens to unravel the
Labour Party less than two
weeks before a set of critical
local elections. Some analysts

are even questioning Brown’s |

political future.‘
Initially his announcement
seemed to undercut the opposi-
tion Conservatives, appropriat-
ing their historic reputation for
lower taxes. Labor lawmakers
applauded deliriously. But the
problem lay in the detail of
Brown’s last budget as chancel-
lor of the Exchequer before he
took over from Blair last June.
To finance a 2-percentage-

point cut in one rate of income ©

’ tax, from 22 to 20 percent, the
chancellor abolished a lower
rate of 10 percent that benefited
particularly low-paid young
workers without children. —
part of Labor’s most cherished
blue-collar constituency.

Now, as a new tax year
begins, Labor politicians facing
local elections on May 1 have
discovered that over 5 million
Britons may be affected by the
maneuvers, losing hundreds of
dollars of income a year on
already low salaries because
they can no longer claim their

_ old tax rate.

“ Those same disgruntled tax-
payers have been grumbling to
their legislators. The lawmak-
ers have been grumbling with

e

i a
Gordon Brown



increasing volume to Brown.
And, on Tuesday, dissident law-
makers appeared to have gath-
ered sufficient support to vote

‘down the government’s bud-

getary plans in a parliamentary
ballot next week. Defeat would
deeply embarrass Brown, whose
political credentials are rooted
in his decade-long stewardship
of the economy and his oft-
voiced claim to have lifted
Britain’s neediest people out of
poverty.

“We will not allow people to
get into poverty,” he told a
meeting of Labor legislators
Monday night.

“We should be proud that the
poorest people are the biggest
beneficiaries,” Brown went on,
telling legislators: “I understand
how difficult it is out there. I
understand that people are
fighting the elections and ques-
tions are being asked.”

But, he said, according to

Suicide bombings, attacks in Afghanistan kill 13, wound 24



British news reports of the
closed meeting Monday, “We
cannot have the budget defeat-
ed.”

“There is a responsibility on
all of us to unite,” he said.

Brown’s appeal to his party
went some way toward defus-
ing the revolt but did not guar-
antee that Labor would survive
next Monday’s ballot in Parlia-
ment on the budget, which par-
ty officials are comparing to a
confidence vote.

A defeat for Brown in Par-
liament, said Peter Riddell, a
columnist in The Times of Lon-
don, would “not only knock
away a central plank” of the
government’s spending plans,
but also “could trigger a col-
lapse of confidence leading to
his replacement as Prime Min-
ister.”

Riddell concluded that, what-

. ever the outcome, “many peo-

ple — core Labor voters,
activists and members of Par-
liament — are unhappy and dis-
illusioned with Mr. Brown.”
One dissident Labor legisla-
tor, George Pendle, said, “The

‘fact is that if the budget goes

down, if this key clause goes
down, then I don’t think the
government can survive.”
Eailier this month, Brown
visited with President Bush and
with the Democratic and
Republican presidential con-
tenders in Washington. The
journey seemed to stem a slide
in Labor’s fortunes in opinion
surveys, but the surveys show
that the party is still lagging
behind the Conservatives.

Hi KANDAHAR, Afghanistan

A SPATE of suicide bombings and other
attacks on security forces in southern Afghanistan
Wednesday left 13 people dead and 24 others

wounded, officials said, according to Associated |

Press.

In Kandahar province, a suicide bomber blew
himself up next to a vehicle carrying intelligence
agents in the border town of Spin Boldak, killing
three civilians, Kandahar Gov. Assadullah Khalid
said. -

Two children and three intelligence agents were
among the 14 hurt, Khalid said.

Taliban spokesman Qari Yousef Ahmadi said
the insurgent group was behind the attack and
identified the bomber as a man named Gul
Mohammad.

A 16-year-old boy who was wounded in the

explosion said police shot at the bomber before he
detonated explosives.

“Police opened fire at the man after he ran
toward a group of civilians. He then threw his
shawl and then there was a big explosion,” said
Rehmat Ullah.

In neighboring Helmand province, a suicide
bomber struck a police convoy, killing two officers
and wounding three, said district police chief
Khairudin Shuhja. Shuhja was in the convoy but
was not injured in the attack.

As the bomber approached the car, guards
opened fire, wounding the attacker, who then
blew himself up, Shuhja said.

Southern Afghanistan is the center of the Tal-
iban-led insurgency. Militants regularly use suicide
attacks in their fight against Afghan and foreign
troops in the country, but most victims are civil-

nvestors behind a $2.2 billion

mega-resort project proposed

for eastern Grand Bahama are

looking at alternative coun-

tries for the development, The
Tribune has been told, due to the Gov-
ernment’s reluctance to either sell or
lease Crown Land to it.

The Bahamas Golden Beach Devel-
opment Company project, which is
looking to develop a four-hotel, four
casino complex on Crown Land east of
Pelican Point, includes major interna-
tional brand names and casino opera-
tors such as Planet Hollywood and
Foxwoods Development Company,
Tribune Business can reveal.

Yet sources familiar with the situa-

$40m tax windfall Oil prices threaten firm with

tion said the developers aiid their

brand partners were becoming increas- ,

ingly frustrated at their inability to
obtain a definite answer from the Gov-

_ ernment on whether it wanted the pro-

ject or not.
In the continued absence of an
‘approval in principle’, Tribune Busi-
ness was told, Bahamas Golden.Beach
Development Company and its brand
partners were now looking at alterna-
tive locations where they would be able
to obtain government approval much
faster, including one spot in the Turks
& Caicos Islands.

‘The project was inherited by the
Ingraham administration from the for-
mer Christie ’government, and The Tri-
bune was told that the developers had
been waiting for an answer on an

‘approval in principle’ since Noyem-
ber 2006.

“They haven’t given a preliminary -

approval that they like the project,”
one source told The Tribune. “Those
guys are now looking at other coun-
tries.”

The main sticking point, The Tri-
bune has been told, is that the project
would require between 1100-1200 acres

of Crown Land to bring it to fruition.

The developers have offered to pur-
chase the land at market prices, sources
said, or otherwise lease it on commer-
cial terms or lease with an option to
buy later.

However, the Government is
thought likely to be concerned that if
accedes to the developers’ request, it
would be exposed politically to charges
that it was ‘selling too much Bahamian
land to foreigners. There is also a
strong body of opinion that Crown and
other government-owned land should
be used to benefit Bahamians first.

The Tribune, though, has been told
that the developers can find no plots of
private land for their project that are
suitable in either size, scope or location.
The Crown is said to own at least 20-
30,000 acres in eastern Grand Bahama

- that nothing has been done with for

years, with the Bahamas Golden Beach
Development site “in the middle of
nowhere”.

from BORCO deal

m By NEIL HARTNELL
Tribune Business Editor

THE Government will earn
$40 million in Stamp Duty from
the $900 million purchase of the
Bahamas Oil Refining Interna-
tional Company (BORCO), a
government minister told the
House of Assembly yesterday.

Carl Bethel, minister of edu-
cation, youth and sports, said
BORCO’s acquisition by First

Reserve Corporation, the
world’s largest private equity
player in the global oil, gas and
energy industries, would send

$40 million to the Treasury,
with the deal scheduled to close
later this month. ;

Although Zhivargo Laing,
minister of state for finance
could not be contacted for com-
ment yesterday afternoon, it
appears likely that the Stamp
Duty payment in relation to the
BORCO deal could fill a sig-
nificant chunk of the hole in
revenue estimates caused by
Stamp Duty monies being
behind projections. -

‘wrecked financial year’

@ By NEIL HARTNELL
Tribune Business Editor

BAHAMAS Ferries, the
inter-island marine transporta-
tion provider, yesterday said it
would have “a wrecked finan-
cial year” if global oil prices
continued to increase at current
rates, warning that the imposi-
tion of a fuel surcharge on pas-
senger tickets was “imminent”.

Khaalis Rolle, Bahamas Fer-
ries’ chief marketing officer,
said that with per barrel oil
prices having increased almost
five-fold since the company
went into business in 1999, ever-
soaring fuel costs were “mak-

ing the case for us getiing out of -
the traditional meespeee fer-
ry business”.

Only one of the company’s .



three vessels, the Bo Hengy,
falls into the traditional catego-
ry of a high-speed, and that is
due to be replaced by Bahamas
Ferries’ latest new-build, which
is on track for September/Octo-

With convenient locations in:

Grand Bahama: Freeport - Bank Ln & Woodstock St;

Inagua: Matthew Town San Salvador: Cockburn Town
Cat Island: Knowles, and now in Florida: Coral Gables

ber 2008 delivery to the com-
pany.

Mr Rolle yesterday told Tri-
bune Business that while the Bo

Hengy comprised just one-third |.
of the firm’s fleet, it accounted’

for more than 60 per cent of
Bahamas Ferries’ fuel costs.
Hence the need to switch to a
vessel with slower-speed

’ engines that consumes less fuel.

“One of the things we have
been trying to avoid doing is

adding an unbearable fuel sur- ©

charge,” Mr Rolle said. “It’s at
the point where now we see no
option, particularly on the high-
speed routes.

“We're paying $5a gallon for
diesel, and when we started in

THE TRIBUNE



RC: Wow — our country
sure took a hit when Harrah’s
pulled out and left Baha Mar
holding the bag: GDP down
couple of percentage points,
maybe 5,000 construction
jobs lost, Cable Beach stuck
with its same old tired face.
What went wrong?

Joe: Oh, lots of things.
You could pin it on Perry,
who dilly-dallied too long. Or
on Hubert, who shot his
mouth off. Or the US reces-
sion — tight money and fewer
tourists everywhere. Or the
private equity buy-out of
Harrah’s, when the new own-
ers loaded the company with
a mountain of debt. Or the
usual fate of a minnow like
Baha Mar swimming with a
shark like Harrah’s.

RC: Tell me more.

Joe: Well, look. What is
Baha Mar? Three hotels on
Cable Beach, one so run-

.down they had to close it. No
operations outside Nassau.
Lyford Cay’s Dikran Izmir-
lian picked them up with a
few hundred million of spare
pocket money, re-named
them Baha Mar, and put son

“Sarkis Izmirlian in charge, a
young fellow unknown in the

~hotel business. And who is
Harrah’s? Simply the world’s
biggest and best known gam-
ing/hotel outfit, separating
suckers from their cash

through years of operating as

other American cities, with a
buy-out value of $17.7 billion,
and led by chief executive
Gary Loveman, a former

professor who’s been build-
ing Harrah’s since he joined
them in 1998.



RC: But didn’t they have a |

joint venture agreement all
signed up, with everything
looking rosy?

Joe: Sure, it was all rosy
until the shark didn’t like the
way the water smelled and
wanted out of that tank.
Their termination letter of
March 6 said they thought
the deal was taking too long

-and doubted that “land will

be delivered (by Govern-
ment) to the joint venture as
planned”. I bet that was a red
herring. The real issue was
simmering ever since the
Harrah’s privatisation closed
just five weeks earlier on Jan-
uary 28. Right away, the two
buy-out companies, Texas

' Pacific Group and Apollo

Management, learned that
their banks were having a
hard time selling all the
bonds to finance the highly
leveraged deal; and that the
Harrah’s credit rating was
not too strong. Those hard-

Whither Baha Mar? After

Richard Coulson (RC) interviews
Joe Rackrate (a fictional character),

shuttles between Vegas and Nassau...

nosed guys started to look for
any risky deal they could
unload in the shaky debt
environment, and Baha Mar
was the first, soon followed
by a venture in Slovenia.
Loveman, who had spent
years negotiating Baha Mar,
probably wanted to continue,
but now he was only one of
nine directors, and was told
to wield the axe.

. RC: So did Harrah’s have a
legal right to pull the plug?
.Joe: Baha Mar sure doesn’t
think so. That’s why they
filed a51-page complaint in
New York Supreme Court.
Maybe in the hundreds of
pages of joint venture agree-
ments a smart lawyer can find
some fine print that OKs
Harrah’s move. But to a nor-
mal businessman, it’s pretty :
dicey. Look at the timing: on
January 31, Harrah’s signs
the Supplemental Heads of
Agreement with Baha Mar
and the Government, and
Loveman e-mails Sarkis:
“Well done. We look forward
to working with you to bring
Baha Mar to reality.” Both

this abrupt decision at Har-
rah’s head office in Vegas?
Cold feet at the last minute,
knowing they have to put up
some of the $212 million
agreed equity at the closing?

RC: This means Baha Mar
wins its case? What are they
asking for?

Joe: First, specific perfor-
mance. That is, an order for
Harrah’s to take up its agreed
43 per cent stake. Unlikely
they'll get that, so they’re
also claiming damages, close
to $300 million, to cover what
they’ve already spent. I didn’t
say they would win. To me,
it’s a pretty clear case of bad-

: faith dealing by Harrah’s, but

whether bad faith counts in a
New York court, you’ll have

‘ to ask the lawyers. Or better

still, the judge. And I’m sure
Harrah’s will drag up every
reason to fight back.

RC: But let’s assume Baha
Mar wins. Can they all be
happy campers then?

Joe: Far from it, my friend.
So they collect a big pile of
cash, but a lot more than

brochures and glowing web-
sites must be junked. Talent-
ed, expensive staff are
already being sacked.
Bahamian contractors are
bitter. What happens to all
the road-moving schemes,
the Jack Nicklaus golf
course? Baha Mar never dug
a shovel of dirton Cable —
Beach, so all Bahamians saw
was the forced closing of pop-
ular Café Johnny Canoe —
not the smartest PR move.
The A-word is never men-
tioned, but Atlantis remains
unchallenged as the domi-
nant tourist draw in the

Bahamas.

RC: Pretty tough on Sarkis
, since the original November
2005 website said Baha Mar
was “Created by Sarkis
Izmirlian”, then aged 33.

Joe: Yeah, and by all
accounts he’s a real good guy,
got a top Georgetown degree
in finance, energetic, ambi-
tious, lovely wife. A certified
gentleman now that he’s
elected a Governor of Lyford
Cay Club. And an amazing
family: grandfather left home
without a penny and made a
fortune shlepping camel
trains across the Sudan, dad,
they say, cornered the
African peanut market. All

that takes guts and brains!
And they support a charita-
ble foundation back in strug-
gling Armenia.

RC: So Sarkis gets the sym-
pathy vote.

Joe: Sure, but sympathy
doesn’t cut any ice in the
hotel business. The fact is he
lost the deal. Look at Sol
Kerzner, the tough old pro,
compared to young Sarkis,
the nice young amateur.
Everything Sol does on Par-
adise Island turns to gold,

lians like to keep a low pro-
file, but that’s a strange poli-
cy when you’re creating “the
Caribbean’s largest single-

RC: So what’s next for
Baha Mar? Can they get Har-
rah’s to come back? There
was a hint of that in the ter-
mination letter.

ew bite for money
transmission firms

m@ By CARA BRENNEN-
BETHEL
Tribune Business
Reporter

MONEY Transmission service
providers will now be supervised
by a single regulator, and must
comply with new requirements
under the amended provision of
the Banks and Trust Companies
(Regulations) Act.

Rochelle Deleveaux, legal
counsel and secretary to the Cen-
tral Bank of the Bahamas Board,
gave an update on the regula-
tion of non-bank money trans-
mission at a Bahamas Associa-
tion of Compliance Officers

(BACO) and Central Bank joint
half-day forum.

Ms Deleveaux explained that
the Government had decided
that all money transmission oper-
ators (such as Western Union,
MoneyGram and Omni Finan-
cial Services, which send and
receive money) should be placed
under a single regulator.

This came on the heels of rec-
ommendations by the Financial
Action Task Force (FATF) that
money transfer providers should
be licensed, registered and:sub-
ject to all the FATF recommen-
dations that apply to banks and
non-bank financial institutions.

Under the Banks and Trust

‘Companies Act, Ms Deleveaux
said providers needed to be
licensed and registered with the
Central Bank of the Bahamas at
a fee of $5,000.

Stated

She further stated that under
the Act, money transmission
providers, unless otherwise stat-
ed, have to undergo on-site
examinations and sanctions.
They are not, however, subjected
to the same requirements as oth-
er institutions under the Act,
such as licensing requirements,
approval to establish business
outside the Bahamas or the

requirement to publish annual
audited statements.
Additionally, money trans-
mission providers do not have to
be subjected to the requirements
of cross-border inspections, rules

for inspections or dormant

accounts.

Only companies in existence
and operating since 1992, or
groups of individuals of five or
more persons may be licensed.
Existing money transmission
providers have three months
after the regulations come into
force to apply to the Central
Bank for a license. They will
also be required to have a
$50,000 capital requirement, ade-

quate medical insurance, and
submit annual audited state-
ments to the inspector within the
months of the end of the finan-
cial year, unless the Governor of
the Bank gives an extension. The
money transmission provider
must be registered with the Cen-
tral Bank and pay an annual fee

-of $300.

Further, Ms Deleveaux said
such companies must comply
with Exchange Control Regula-
tions, and maintain a head
office and a registered office in
the Bahamas.

Ms Deleveaux said that strict
record keeping will be required
and kept for five years, and must

THE Government yesterday
tabled in the House of Assembly
a list of 90 projects that had
received Cabinet approval since
it took office in May 2007, rep-
resenting a total projected capital
investment of more than $9 bil-
lion - provided all go through to
completion in their entirety.

Minster of Education Carl
Bethel tabled the documents,
which list not only resort devel-
opments and condominiums but
also a horse pasture, multi-media
production facility, residences, a
sports history museum, plastic
surgery clinic and a seafood
hatchery.

However, given the current
world economic climate, it
remains to be seen whether all
these projects will actually come
to fruition or be completed
entirely as planned. For exam-
ple, Kerzner International has
already announced its intent to
scale back.certain’ aspects of its

$500 million Hurricane Hole/
Marina Village 2 expansion. The
project was given National Eco-
nomic Council (NEC) approval
on November 8, 2007.

Other projects of note include:

* The $200 million Barbary
Bay Development Company
project on Grand Bahama, head-
ed by Morgan Stanley, which
would include the construction
of a condo hotel, marina village
casino and residential communi-
ty. That is understood to have
been delayed by the global eco-
nomic climate and ownership dis-
pute at the Grand Bahama Port
Authority (GBPA).

* A $1.2 billion investment by

Cat Island Partners for a mixed-
use golf and beach resort, with a
casino.
. * A resort at Sandyport, the
Grande Palm Beach Resort and
Spa, with 440 rooms at a pro-
jected value of $250 million.

* Cottage Estate on Little
Exuma - some 313 acres of land
situated west of Williams Town
and Salt Pond in Little Exuma,
for the purpose of a mixed-use

resort which would include a
plastic surgery clinic,. luxury
recovery suites, sports and.cardio
rehabiliton facilities and a brand-
ed hotel and resort and residence
complex. It is valued at $950 mil-
lion.

* Imagine Nation Company
(David Copperfield) - a $100
million plan to purchase Musha
Cay, Rudder Cut Cay and Little
Lansing Cay for further devel-
opment to. become a mixed use
resort with a zoo for exotic ani-
mals.

* Monark Investment Enter-
prises - The purchase of 9.154
acres of land for a commercial
equestrian facility including
horse stables, riding arenas, a
dormitory to facile equestrian
camps, club house and restau-
rant.

* Palm Cay Development on

[ET aS
Oil prices threaten firm

FROM page 1B

1999 we were paying $0.79 a
gallon, just under a dollar. Our
costs have increased signifi-
cantly.”

Attempting to put the issue
into perspective, Mr Rolle said
that when the company was
formed, oil cost $25 per barrel,
compared to the $118 per barrel
price it is now trading at on
international markets.

The Bo Hengy operates
arguably Bahamas Ferries’ most
popular route, namely the Nas-
sau-Spanish Wells-Harbour
Island-Governor’s Harbour

route.

Mr Rolle added: “To contin-
ue to operate that at current
trends, we would have to charge
more than $200 per ticket [for a
round-trip on the Eleuthera
route]. Right now, it’s at $115.

“It’s still significantly lower
than the airlines, but it’s becom-
ing unbearable, not only for us
but the consumer as well.

“We’re beyond the point
where we have to implement a
fuel surcharge for the consumer.
We’ve been discussing it inter-
nally, and will be looking to pull
the trigger very shortly in that
matter.”

Mr Rolle confirmed that the
imposition of a fuel surcharge
on Bahamas Ferries’ passenger
tickets was “imminent. It’s just
how much and when.

“We understand we’re not
going to recover all that we’re
losing, but we need to remain
operational. It’s going to be con-
sistent with the need to stay
operational.

“For us it’s the last option.
We'll try to absorb the increase
[in fuel prices] within reason,
but it’s becoming unbearable.
Before the year is out, we may
be paying $6 or $7 per gallon
for fuel, even $8 per gallon.

“We haven’t increased our
prices to match the fuel
increase. Our margins are
squeezed significantly, and we
are finding it difficult to keep

pace.”

The increase in global oil
prices, and by extension gaso-
line prices, will heavily impact
an economy such as the
Bahamas that is heavily reliant
on inter-island transportation
to drive commerce.

Apart from Bahamas Ferries,
mail boat operators, taxi drivers
and jitney drivers are all agitat-
ing for government approval to
increase their fares and rates,
so that they can cover the rising
fuel costs and still maintain mar-
gins and profits.

Airline companies, too, are -
looking to at least pass some of
the fuel price increases on to
consumers through adding fuel
surcharges to ticket prices.

Mr Rolle told Tribune Busi-
ness that Bahamas Ferries’ sit-
uation was not isolated in a
global context, with many high
speed ferry operators forced by
fuel costs to either moor their
boats or go out of business,
unable to find a buyer for the
vessels.

He added that Bahamas Fer-
ries would be “comfortable”
with per barrel of oil prices
between $68-$75, but current
prices were between 42.4 per
cent to 36.5 per cent higher.

“Where it is now, it definitely
puts us out there,” Mr Rolle
added. “If it continues the way
it is, our financial year will be
threatened.” He further
described current trends as pro-
ducing a “wrecked financial

Describing the global oil mar-
ket as presenting “a bleak pic-
ture”, with no relief currently
in sight, Mr Rolle said the mon-
ey Bahamas Ferries was spend-
ing on fuel purchases could
have been used for capital
expenditure instead, reinvested
in upgrading the firm’s facili-
ties, docks and boats.

On a brighter note, customer
demand for Bahamas Ferries
was “still holding steady”, keep-
ing revenue streams constants
with Mr Rolle confident the
company would retain its cus-
tomer base.

“It’s just the fuel costs that
are spiralling out of control,”
Mr Rolle added. “It is the sec-
ond highest line item after
salaries, wages and benefits. It
carves out a big chunk.”

investments in the Office of the
Prime Minister, did not return
The Tribune’s phone calls seek-
ing comment.

Zhivargo Laing, minister of
state for finance, did though
confirm that the Government
had been concerned over the
Bahamas Golden Beach Devel-
opment Company’s Crown
Land needs.

“T think there were concerns
about the significant require-
ment being made for land. I
think something was communi-
cated to them about that, and
they may have sent something
back to the Prime Minister’s
Office about that,” Mr Laing
told Tribune Business yester-
day.

This newspaper has been told
that initial projections for the
Bahamas Golden Beach Devel-
opment project have pegged
peak construction employment
at about just under 3,000 jobs,
with a total annual wage bill of
over $143 million.

When full operations of the
resort complex begin, more
than 3,000 permanent jobs will
be created, The Tribune under-
stands; with the project’s first
phase involving the build-out
of 2,400 rooms.

It is understood the develop-
ers fell that a four-hotel, four-
casino complex is necessary to
build the critical mass that will
attract large numbers of high-
spending tourists to Grand
Bahama, a destination not pre-
viously known for its tourism
industry.

One hotel and casino, they .
feel, will be unable to achieve

this, with the Bahamas Golden
Beach Development project
also eyeing a marina, timeshare

‘options and potential cruise

port.

Apart from Planet Holly-
wood and Foxwoods, the other
strategic partners also include
Omni Hotels; Taubman a $2.5
billion listed US company that

' specialises in gaming retail and

manages more than 30 major
shopping malls across the US;
Baglioni Hotels; and Atlantic
Marina Holdings as the marina
operator.

The developers and their
strategic partners are all under-
stood to be willing to invest a
total of $265 million in equity
into the Bahamas Golden
Beach Development project,
with UBS’s investment banking
arm offering to provide a $500
million credit facility.

Manpower, environmental
and economic assessments are
understood to have been car-
ried out and forwarded to the
Government, which is asking
for the developers to provide a
business plan and evidence of
financing to it. Yet The Tribune
understands that without the
approval in principle, no finan-
cial institution will provide a
guarantee or financing commit-
ment.

The situation is also a poser
for Foxwoods, which only
agreed to become Harcourt
Developments’ casino and hotel
operator for the Royal Oasis on
the understanding that their
main interest - the eastern
Grand Bahama project - would
be approved. Failure to approve
this could place that involve-
ment in jeopardy.

@ By SAUL HANSELL
c.2008 New York Times
News Service

PROFIT at AT&T, the
telecommunications compa- °
ny, jumped 22 per cent in the
first quarter as its wireless
business continued to grow
fast enough to make up for
its shrinking traditional ser-

- vice.

AT&T said it was adding
wireless customers at a faster
pace than a year ago. Rev-
enue grew six per cent from a
year ago, to $30.7 billion, but
that growth masked the con-
tinuing shift among the com-
pany’s business lines. Rev-
enue from wireline voice ser-
vice fell 7.1 per cent, to $9.7
billion, while wireless rev-
enue increased 17.1 per cent,
to $10.6 billion.

The company, which is the
exclusive carrier for Apple’s
iPhone, added 1.3 million

. wireless customers, giving it a

wireless customer base of
71.4 million subscribers.

The growth was not entire-
ly welcome news to analysts.
Craig E Moffett, an analyst
with Sanford C Bernstein &
Company, wrote in a note to
clients on Tuesday that he

- was concerned that the accel-

erating loss in the wireline
business could destabilize the

’ company, despite the growth

in cellphone profit. “More
than ever, wireless is AT&T’s
engine,” Moffett wrote, “but
wireline is its anchor.
“Wireless subscriber
growth and profitability were
better than expected, but
wireline trends — both access
line losses and wireline mar-
gins — were the worst ever,”
he wrote. “AT&T’s contin-

ued access line deterioration
is. putting severe strains on
wireline profitability.”
Moffett calculated that the
rate of lines being discon-
nected was at a record high.
The economic slowdown, he
wrote, is encouraging people
to cancel their landline ser-
vice and use only cellphones.
But he said those customers
would not get their tradition-
al phone service reconnected

when the economy improved.

“Wireless substitution -
appears to have accelerated,
likely due in.part to a weak-
ening economy,” he wrote.
“But to call even this trend
‘cyclical’ would be a mis-
nomer, in.our view; it seems
improbable, at best, to
assume that the consumer
who cut the cord now might
return when the economy
strengthens.”

In a statement, AT&T’s
chief executive, Randall L
Stephenson, expressed opti-
mism about efforts to cut *
costs and shift more business

' to wireless and data service.

“Revenue growth contin-
ues to ramp, we have good
momentum across key
growth areas, major cost ini-
tiatives are on track, and our

operational results reinforce |

the confidence we have in
our outlook,” Stephenson
said.

The company reported net
income of $3.5 billion, or 57
cents a share, up 22 per cent
from the $2. 85 billion, or 45
cents a share, reported in the
year-ago quarter.

AT&T’s income was
reduced by $1.2 billion in
noncash charges related to
various mergers and $374
million in costs related to

er cent in first quarter

recent layoffs. On Friday,
AT&T said it would elimi-
nate 4,650 jobs, or 1.5 per
cent of its work force.

After deducting these non-
recurring charges, AT&T
earned 74 cents a share,
exactly what analysts had
estimated.

Company shares rose 22
cents, closing at $37.81 on the
New York Stock Exchange.

Almost all of AT&™’s
growth in profit came from
its wireless unit, which had
operating earnings of $2.9 bil-
lion, an increase of 96 pér
cent. Wireline profit fell two
per cent, to $2.8 billion.

AT&T continues to gener-
ate a significant amount of
cash, although its capital
expenses are growing even
faster. In the first quarter,
cash flow from operations
was $5 billion, up seven per

. cent. But it invested $4.3 bil-

lion in facilities and equip-

ment, up 27 per cent.
Wireless data was particu-

larly strong, the company

‘said, with revenue increasing

57 per cent to $2.3 billion.
That now represents 22 per
cent of the total wireless rev-
enue, up from 16 per cent a
year ago. The average
monthly revenue for each
subscriber, a measure
watched closely,.increased

- two per cent, to $50.18. ©

In the first quarter, AT&T
customers sent 44 billion text
messages, twice the number a
year ago. The company also
added 148,000 customers for
its U-verse television service,
giving it 379,000 total sub-
scribers. AT&T said it hoped
to have one million sub-

. scribers by the end of :he

year. \

THE TRIBUNE





Bank expands branch
network to eastern NP

FROM page 1B

time you start to completion.”

He explained that Common-
wealth Bank had been encour-
aged to further expand its New
Providence branch network by
the success of its Golden Gates
branch, which opened last year
and, by the bank’s May 16,
.2007, annual general meeting
(AGM) had attracted $5 mil-
lion in deposit accounts and
produced $15 million in loan
receivables.

“We went down south and
that proved quite successful
with Golden Gates,” Mr Don-
aldson said. “The eastern area is
not served - the Jast bank out
that way is way down on Prince
Charles Drive, close to Soldier
Road. There’s a great deal of

live out there.

“It’s a vast area, and we
intend to serve it and pick up
business there. We learned a lot
from the Golden Gates
branch.”

Mr Donaldson told Tribune
Business he did not know what
Commonwealth Bank’s invest-
ment in its latest branch, the
seventh on New Providence,
would be, as the construction
tender had not yet gone out to

* bid.

He added that given the
experience the bank had when
it opened the Golden Gates
branch, it was difficult to predict
the jobs that would be created
by the new Prince Charles Dri-
ve outlet, which will be a full-
service branch.

“We got the shock of our

we thought we were going to
do, we started off with ‘x’ peo-
ple, and in four weeks‘ we had
‘x’ plus ‘y’. The loan depart-
ment could not keep up with
the applications, and we had to
put an additional six people into
that branch,” Mr Donaldson
recalled.

The Commonwealth Bank
chairman confirmed that the
institution is seeking share-
holder approval to amend some
of its Articles of Association
that are “archaic” and “totally
out of step with modern busi-
ness practices”.

Commonwealth Bank’s
shareholders will be asked at
its upcoming May 21, 2008,
annual general meeting
(AGM) to approve changes to

the Articles of Association that
would allow the directors to
decide whether to “split, sub-
divide or consolidate” the
bank’s ordinary shares, rather
than having to first seek their
approval at an Extraordinary
General Meeting (EGM).

“When the bank was incor-
porated years ago, it never
envisaged the things happening
to the bank now,” Mr Donald-
son explained.

“Although we had the Arti-
cles reviewed before, and
made some changes shortly
before we went public in
2000”, every time Common-
wealth Bank wants to embark

on a major initiative it has to ,

seek shareholder approval.
“You can’t keep on going to

the shareholders for something
like that,” Mr Donaldson said
in reference to the bank’s
three-for-one stock split, which
shareholders had to approve
at last year’s October EGM.

“There’s no diminution of
their holdings. When you do a
split, it just means that they’ve
got more shares.”

Mr Donaldson said the 2008
first quarter had been “very
good” for Commonwealth
Bank, adding that he and his
fellow Board directors “are

-Bahamian

feeling very confident” about
its prospects for the full-year,
notwithstanding the ‘doom and
gloom’ enveloping many in the
and global
economies.

However, the Common-
wealth Bank chairman said he
and the institution would not
know until June whether the
impact from the delays to the
Baha Mar and Kerzner Inter-
national projects was going to
filter into and impact the over-
all economy.

SHARING OUR
ENCOUNTERS
WITH GOD

@ By YOLANDA DELEVEAUX
Tribune Features Editor
ybdeleveaux@tribunemedia.net

ow many of us long to hear the voice

H: God? After days, weeks or months

of praying about an important issue

in our lives, we sometimes reach the point of
feeling desperate to hear from the one who
holds the future in the palm of his hands and
who loves us above all else. But
sometimes...there is silence - not the calm of
the Holy Spirit breathing peace into our midst
- but an emptiness, a lack of reassurance, hav-
ing, somehow, failing to connect with the one
that breathed life into our being.

Reverend Angela Bosfield Palacious

OTICE



Drawing from her own walk with
Lord, and the words of spiritual wisdom
given to her - through moments of medi-
tation and reflection - to share with oth-
ers, Reverend Angela Bosfield Palacious
presents Sharing Our Stories of
Encounters With God, in an effort to
help others understand how to enter into
that space where they can hear from and
have relationship with the our Father.

“I was approached by several persons
to share my journey to ordination and
some of my own spiritual journey and I
thought if I could combine it with ques-
tions to be used for personal reflection,
family devotion or small group study that
it would be more about the Lord and the
other persons than about me,” Rev
Palacious said. “My life would be like a
sign post, pointing people to find in other
areas of their own life how the holy spir-
it leads and guides and heals and
restores.” —

Described as autobiographical medita-
tions that have the intention of drawing
readers into dialogue with the author to
foster self reflection and recognise that
God is present in all circumstances,
Encounters With God is about finding
peace and joy in that relationship as we
respond to Him.

Written in three segments; Home and
Family, which focuses on the intimate
experiences in Rev Palacious’ own life;
Travels Abroad, which includes obser-

_ vations that led to spiritual discoveries

‘By CLEMENT JOHNSON

Eo AST: week the Church in the

western world saw Pope
Bénedict XVI visiting America. It was
a blessing to watch the crowds at the
various events as I sat glued to the TV.
I was most moved when I saw the Pope
ministering to the relatives of survivors
at ground zero. Jt showed the world
how all of,us can make a difference in
the lives of each other.

The mass at Yankees stadium was an
awe inspiring moment for me. The
Pope’s reference to the readings of the
Sth Sunday of Easter: where the disci-
ples asked Jesus to show them the
Father. It reminded me of one of the
‘Little Johnny’ jokes I heard some time
ago.

Five-year old Johnny is in the
kitchen with his mother who is prepar-
ing supper. She asks him to go to the
basement and fetch her a can of toma-
to soup. “It's dark in there and I'm
scared,” replies Johnny. The mother
tries to convince him it is safe to go
alone to the basement, but without
- much success. Finally she says “It's all
right, Johnny, Jesus will be in there
with you.” Johnny walks hesitantly to
the door and slowly opens it. He peeps
_ inside, sees that it is still dark, and
- Starts to go back. Then, suddenly he

gets an idea. He opens the basement
door a little and yells: “Jesus, if you're
in there, would you hand me a can of
tomato soup, please?”

Johnny's fear is similar to the fear of
the disciples as the time draws near for
Jesus to leave them. They are afraid to
face the world alone. In today's gospel
reading, Jesus does pretty much what
Johnny's mother tried to.do, namely,
convince the disciples that there is no
need to be afraid, even when he is not
there with them.

“Do not let your hearts be troubled”

(John 14:1a). The Greek text shows
that the disciples are already afraid and
Jesus is asking them here to master
their fears. What reason does Jesus
give them? It is both simple and pro-
found: “You believe in God, .believe
also in me” (14:1b).

It is easy to believe in God, a spiritu-
al being that we cannot see. The chal-
lenge is to believe in ordinary, flesh-
and-blood human beings whom we
know all too well already. The chal-
lenge is to believe in the incarnation,
that the all-knowing, all-loving, and all-
powerful God is present and active in
ordinary human beings who are often

lacking in knowledge, in love, and in -

moral strength. You believe in God
(that is the easy part), believe also in
me, a presumably frail human being
(that is the hard part).

The disciples see God in Jesus. So
long as he is around, there is no fear.
But they do not see God in their fellow
disciples. They are just too human,
subject to the shortcomings and weak-
nesses of ordinary mortals. The disci-
ples set Jesus apart. They put him on a
different platform from themselves. It
is interesting to note that all the rea-
soning that Jesus offers to persuade
them not to fear is pitched on the exact
opposite camp.

Jew: is trying to convince them
that if God could work through

him, Jesus, then God could as well
work through any other human being.
Jesus places himself on the same plat-
form with them so as to make them
believe that God can use them and
work through them in spite of their
human deficiencies.

In fact, in order to drive home this
point, Jesus even goes as far as placing
the disciples on a higher platform than
himself as people through whom God
can work: “Very truly, I tell you, the one
who believes in me will also do the
works that I do and, in fact, will do
greater works than these, because I am
going to the Father” (verse 12).

Today, many of us are like Philip; our
prayer is, “Lord, show us the Father,
and we will be satisfied” (verse 8).
Show us that. God is with us in the

church. Show us that God is alive and

actively involved in events in our world |
today. What does Jesus answer? “How -
can you say, 'Show us the Father?'”
(verse 9) when God is so deeply
involved in the events and crises of the
church and of the world.

You see, the incarnation (God
becoming flesh) has removed the wall
of division between the divine and the
human. The history of God and the
history of humanity have become inex-
tricably intertwined. The story of the
kingdom of God, which Jesus came to
inaugurate, cannot be told apart from
the story of the church in the world.
God took a risk when God decided to
become human. Whether the divine
risk will issue in success or failure is up
to us.

When we see things happening in the
church or in our world the way they
should not, it is not time to blame God
for abandoning us to our own whims
and caprices. No, God is always with
us. It is rather a time for serious soul
searching, a time for us as individuals
and as a church to ask ourselves:
Where did we miss it?

How can we get back on God's
track? What is God saying to us in
these events and crises?

We should not let our hearts be trou-
bled. We believe in God, let us now
believe in men and women made in the
image and likeness of God.

Calvary Deliverance Church ‘For Life’ Fun, Run/Walk-a-Thon

D O we take into consideration how important
our health is on a daily basis and the benefits

of good health in the long run? Our body is the temple
of the Lord therefore we should keep it clean, healthy
and holy.

In light of this, the family of Calvary Deliverance
Church would like to announce that we are holding our
4th Annual "For Life” Run/Walk Competition and
Health Fair this coming Saturday, April 26 on the
church grounds, East Street South.

This health fair is designed to encourage, promote
and practice healthy lifestyles whether we are young or
old, man, woman or child. The Minister of Health and
Social Development Dr Hubert A Minnis will be joining
us during the walk and will assist in the presentation of
trophies.

Registration is now in progress and part of the pro-
ceeds will go to Faith Village Sénior Citizen's Complex,
which the church is preparing to construct.

The fun, run and walk competition commences at

6:30am from the church grounds on East Street South.
Runners and walkers have two slightly different routes

and it goes as follows:

Walker’s route

e South from the church

° West onto Zion Blvd

° North onto Blue Hill Road

° East onto Malcolm Road

¢ South onto East Street back to the church

Runner’s route

e South from the church

e West onto Zion Blvd

e North onto Blue Hill Road

e East onto Soldier Road

e South onto East Street back to the church

A trophy will be presented to the top three finishers
in five categories for walking and running. Also, there is
an overall trophy for the very first walker and runner
that crosses the finish line, regardless of age or gender.

The health fair begins at 9am, climaxing at 2pm. We
have free eats, drinks and on site consultations from
doctors and various health care professionals including

massage therapists, chiropractors and an ear, nose and
throat specialist.

Already lined up to participate in the event are vari-
ous health organisations including the Bahamas Heart
Association, Bahamas National Drug Counsel, Doctors
Hospital, the Ministry of Health’s healthy lifestyles sec-
tions and the Bahamas Association of Physiotherapist.

Testing of glucose and cholesterol will be performed,
in addition to blood pressure checks. A dietitian will be
on site to tell everyone how, what and when to eat and
the necessity of drinking eight glasses of water a day.

There will also be a fitness instructor who will speak
to the importance of daily exercise and how it helps to
keep our heart and lungs in good shape, healthy and
strong.

Entertainment and games, like egg and spoon races,
and whool-la-hoop dancing will be provided for the chil-
dren’s enjoyment. There will also be a bouncing castle, a
clown, and lots more to enjoy at no cost.

The general public is invited to come and enjoy this
time of fun and fellowship with us while we encourage
healthy lifestyles for healthy living.

Meet us at the finish line!

soned Christians who will engage in
more soul searching,” the author
noted.

Asked about her literary experience,
Rev Palacious, who, with this publica-
tion, has authored her seventh book to
date, said her foray into writing began
before she was ordained. “It was a part
of how God allowed me to wait for

ordination - May 11, 1999 to the dia-
conate and May 31, 2000 to the priest-
hood.”

An even earlier experience with the
exercise of writing was as a literature
major, both at the undergraduate and
graduate levels. And it would be a tal-
ent that traveled the world with her.
“When we went to Eleuthera to take
up ministry [her husband Archdeacon
James Palacious was the priest in
charge at St Patrick’s Parish] I would
write the meditations for the weekly
church bulletins.”

Later, Rev Palacious’ writings would
turn into books as she built up a collec-
tion of meditations that would, over the
years, be grouped in themes. “This is
the first [book] with autobiographical
content. Previously they were either
focused on a particular scripture pas-
sage, event in the parish or country, or
seasonal meditation on some aspect of
the church’s year,” she said, adding that
some of her topics for speaking engage-
ments would later be converted into

short meditations for the bulletins and
then for publication as a column in the
Tribune’s Religion section.

According to Rev Palacious, her
writing process begins with prayer.
“The thoughts flow and it’s written all
as a piece in one sitting - it flows from
start to finish.”

Through this latest effort, which
began in 2003, Rev Palacious said that
she wants to encourage others to also
put down in black and white their expe-
riences with the Lord.

“IT want to encourage other
Bahamians to make the effort to cap-
ture truths in writing that they’ve
learned along the road of life, and par-
ticularly their.experiences of how God
has touched them and what the Lord
Jesus Christ means to them,” she said.

It is important, Rev Palacious noted,
that Christians record how the Holy
Spirit inspires them to accomplish
things far beyond their wildest dreams,
and that we acknowledge, in writing,
that God’s plans for us are wonderful

and intended to bring healing and
wholeness to troubled hearts, broken
homes and nations in conflict.

“As I reread the book, I realised that
so many of the details of my own walk
with the Lord would have been lost if it
had not been captured in print,” she
said. “What is most significant is that I
can see-how God has been with me in
the bright sunshine and in the darkest
days and how blessings flow even in the
midst of the struggle and it continues to
strengthen me, to give me hope, peace,
joy in living and enlarges my capacity
to love others.”

< “. was born

Pauline (Paula) “Margaret Albury on
Harbour Island into a family of
Anglicans.

Except for her older sister, Pauline
was baptized Catholic because her
grandfather had been at odds with the
priest at St John's Anglican Church at
the time of her birth. So it was that, on
Sundays, Pauline would take her
younger siblings*to St John's, while
she proceeded to Mass at the Catholic
Church.

Her parents were George and
Romalia Bethel Albury. Mrs Albury's
name would become legendary in the
Catholic School system. Although
registered at Harbour Island's public
school, Pauline ran away to St
Benedict's Catholic School, convinced
that this was the place for her.

The young Anglican was powerfully
attracted to the Catholic Church and
was finally baptized into the faith on
January 10, 1952 and confirmed on
February 2, 1952.

She knew that she wanted to
become a teacher, nurse or a nun to
help people.

Her sister's application to Blessed
Martin Convent was not successful
through some mishap, so Pauline ful-
filled this wish of her sister on
September 15, just months after her
confirmation. At Saint Martin's
Convent, Sister Regina Francis
(Eileen Maher, SC) told Pauline that
her religious vocation would allow her
to pursue the other two callings that
attracted her.

With entrance to the novitiate on
March 19, 1953, Pauline began to be
called Sister Cecilia. [Like the other
Sisters of the community, she added
‘Mary’ as a forename during the
Marian Year, but later dropped it
c because there was another Mary
: : Cecilia.)

Her first vows were pronounced in
1955 and final vows in 1960. There fol-
lowed her first teaching experiences -
first at Our Lady's (then Holy Name)
in Bimini, and St Bede's in Nassau.

In 1962, Sister Cecilia went to Cold
Spring, Minnesota, where she experi-
enced something of a culture shock.
: She was the only black person among
on , . », the .30-plus Sisters there until .an

American called Sister Joyce joined
: them. :
: She was no less surprised when she
asked one of her classes to do a draw-
2 recs ing one day. Every child, except one
BS aL anaeu iE % boy, represented her as_ white.





Celebrating

As the Sisters of Saint Martin Monastery cele-
brate 70 years of existence, from 1937 to 2008,
Tribune Religion will feature each of the current
members of one Monastery.



Nevertheless, her sunny nature pre-
vailed and she adjusted to the commu-
nity to enjoy four years there teaching
at St Boniface (1962-1966). She was to
make fast friends among the children -
and their parents.

Returning to Nassau in 1966, Sister
Cecilia enrolled in the two-year
teacher education programme at
Bahamas Teachers College, in which
she was endorsed from the University
of the West Indies. She continued her
education at the College of St
Benedict and graduated with a bache-
lor's degree. She studied yet more at
Barry College [now _— Barry
University), Miami Shores.

Further periods of teaching would
include tenures as principal at St
Vincent de Paul, Grand Bahama, St
Joseph in Nassau and Holy Name,
Bimini. —

Gifted with a beautiful singing
voice, Sister Cecilia performed with
the well-known Renaissance Singers,
directed by the renowned
composer/pianist Clement Bethel. She
also became a member of the
Diocesan Chorale under the direction
of noted Bahamian musician Andrew
Curry.

By the time she ealebiied her gold-
en anniversary of religious life in ae
she had recorded 'Mary's Songs’,
CD of her singing - all told, an ave
and fruitful life for someone who had
suffered several bouts of serious ill-
ness.

When she retired from teaching,
Sister Cecilia became administrator of
St Joseph Day Care Centre for the
aged, a role for which she prepared at
St Scholastica Home in Minnesota
and through a gerontology workshop
in South Dakota. ;

During an interview in 2007, Sister
Cecilia thanked God for her vocation
and all the people who she met and
had helped her in the course of her
religious life. Her humour asserted
itself when she pointed out that,
although religious women were no
longer obliged to wear the veil, she
continued to do so. She noted, with
humour, that the veil was a covering
for all the sins she had committed and
would commit in life.

OSB, a native of Eleuthera, came to
Nassau at age 16. She was born in the
settlement of Lower Bogue on the
Eleuthera mainland on January 24 in
the very year that the Saint Martin
religious community was formed. Her
parents, Ralph and Eunice Albury,
gave her a strict but loving upbring-
ing, which made it hard to leave
home.

She received her early education at
Lower Bogue All-Age School and
loved learning. She also demonstrat-
ed a talent and love for crafts from
an early age and became proficient in
such activities as crocheting, knitting
and basket weaving. While still a
school child, she earned four shillings
a day from the latter craft.

She never attended Sunday Mass
as a child, but came within the orbit
of priests of the
Church because
her older sister
was housekeep-
er to Father









appointed principal of Holy Name
School, Bimini, in 1990.

One of the highlights of her life
educationally came when she com-
pleted the two-year programme in
teacher education at Bahamas
Teachers College. Another was her
realization of the stellar achievement
of an endorsed teacher certificate
from the University of the West
Indies UWI, which qualified her to
teach in any school in the Bahamas
and the West Indies. She was also
cited for outstanding performance in
the production of her long study,
which was the culminating project of
the UWI programme. And she was
given a further opportunity for study
in a year at the College of St
Benedict in Minnesota.

matter. Nevertheless, Ena entered
Blessed Martin Convent on March
19, 1953, taking the religious name of
Mary Joseph. She would pronounce
her final vows on August 6, 1960.
Sister Ena was given the opportu-
nity to continue her education at
Aquinas College, where she was
imbued with a love of teaching. Her
first classroom assignment was at St
Joseph School, where she began in
1958. With a preference for teaching
Grades two through four, she
enjoyed imparting such subjects as
art and crafts, English, physical edu-
cation and needlework. Her teaching
career also encompassed stints at St
Bede's in Nassau and St Vincent de
Paul, where she eventually took on
- the role of deputy principal. She was

Duquesne to observe her practice
and she graduated from the
University with a 3.8 cumulative .
average.

Reflecting on the fateful step she
had taken 54 years before, Sister Ena
said that she and a childhood friend
had often dreamed of becoming
brides and having families but she
never regretted becoming a nun. She
noted that she had been so privileged
to have been called by God and to be
given the grace to face the difficulties
encountered in life in a religious .
community and as an individual.
“God has been good, is now good.
and always will be," she said.

Dying, not an option!

S a prophet of Elyown, ‘el-
yone’, the most high God, I
want to say that as you read
this article despite what you have gone
through or are yet to go through, as long

as you can believe and are willing to turn -

away from the religion and tradition of
men - God will do exceedingly, abun-
dantly above all that you can ask or even
imagine.

Our churches are filled with educated,
religious, powerless church folks who
have been taught how to lean on religion
and their way of doing things, but who
are disappointed when God doesn't show
up in their lives the way they believe He
should.

The power of religion would cause a
person to die in their present condition,
despite the fact that God has sent a
rhema to them. It is this religious stance
that makes that word of none effect
(Matthew 7:13).

If the Bahamas chooses to make
America and tourism it's god, then
Elyown, ‘el-yone', has no problem what
so ever in showing this religious nation
who is the true and living God.

The potential recession of America
and the end-time connection of the
European Common Market is just a drop
in the bucket when we think of what this
religious nation is going to face.

There are many ministries that are
doing a good job in talking about God,



but are void of His presence and power
due to their religious beliefs, as a result
many within the four walls of the church-
es are dying. He that hath an ear, let him
hear what the Spirit saith unto the church-
es. Revelations 2:7, 11, 29; Rev. 3:6, 13,
and 22.

Cannibalism

The Bahamas today is likened unto
Israel during the time of Elisha (II Kings
7:3) as Israel was experiencing a famine.
Things were so bad economically in the
land to the point where for survival, acts
of cannibalism were taking place (II
Kings 7:26-29).

Here we are today in the Bahamas,
we're not practicing cannibalism, but due
to the spiritual and economic hardships
there are many gruesome, ungodly acts
taking place. Not being one of the coun-
try's religious leaders, but rather an ora-
cle of the Most High God, I say to those
who would receive this word, “You don't
have to die in your situation or condi-
tion”,

Here's what four men who were termi-
nally ill said to themselves: II Kings 7:3.
And there were four leprous men at the
entering in of the gate: and they said one
to another, Why sit we here until we die?

It's time for you to get up and out of
that religious church mind-set/environ-
ment and become kingdom minded. How
many more conferences or seminars do
you need to attend? What other type of
oil do you need to be anointed with or
who else needs to lay hands upon you?

I want to assure you that God faithful-
ly watches over His word to perform it.
Please don't allow the situation you're in
to determine who you are. Whenever
you feel like giving up and throwing in
the towel, I remind you of Jeremiah
29:11.

It's obvious that today's concept of
leadership is one dimensional and the
principle of passing the leadership baton
has evaded the leadership pool of today’s
government, civic and religious leaders.

Being faced with these facts, it's very
easy to point fingers at one another and
say who is or is not doing the right thing.
The million dollar question is this; what
are you doing? Who are you influencing?
Whether you realise it or not, you're a
leader in one way or another; either lead-
ing in doing something good or evil.

Anybody that sets out to do anything

’ great for God, according as He has called

them, will always face great challenges
and oppositions. Through religion, many
prophetic words have been spoken to

those with itching ears, as to what God
said that He's going to do in and through
their lives, but here's what the prophets
forgot to tell their-listeners, “they've got
to war over the prophetic words they've
received”

In speaking about the revelation upon
which His church shall be built, here's
what Yeshuwa Messiah said; Thou art
Peter, and upon this rock I will build my
church; and the gates of hell shall not pre-
vail against it. Matthew 16:18

As you set your heart to be a disciple
of Yeshuwa's church, He didn't say that
the gates of hell will not come against
you, but rather the gates will not pre-
vail/overcome you. Therefore, whatever
kind of sickness or hardship comes up
against you - you've got to know that
dying is not an option.

Dying or giving up is for the religious,
church-minded set, but those who are of
a kingdom-mind set know that they are
more than conquerors. . ;

May the FOG (Favour of God) be with
you?

@ By MONIKA SCISLOWSKA
WARSAW, Poland

here’s a new commandment for Polish priests:

Thou shall not lift. The Roman Catholic Church
in this nation has published a new book that tells priests
how to find inspiration in already published sermons
without breaking the law by lifting passages from them
verbatim.

The book, “To Plagiarize or Not to Plagiarize?” is an
attempt to set boundaries in ti:e wake of pulpit plagia-
rism claims that have hit not just Catholic clerics in

’ Poland but ministers from other Christian denomina-

tions in the United States.

Temptation is just the click of a mouse away as more
and more churches post their sermons online, not to
mention the availability of books and church-sponsored
magazines that provide inspiration for sermons.

There is a thin line between drawing inspiration and
lifting the text outright, said the Rev. Wieslaw
Przyczyna, one of the book’s editors.

In Charlotte, N.C., the Rev. E. Glenn Wagner, a for-
mer senior evangelical pastor at Calvary Church, admit-
ted lifting parts of sermons and resigned in 2004. Also,
the Rev. Robert Hamm, the former senior minister at
the United Church of Christ in Keene, N.H., admitted to
similar accusations and resigned the same year.

Paul Hasser of the Center for the Liturgy of St. Louis
University. in Missouri said he remembered seeing
priests reading their Sunday sermons directly from a
book when he was a boy.

“That bothered no one then,” said Hasser, who runs
the Center’s sermon Web site.

But with the quick dissemination of sermons on the

AP: RELIGION IN THE I EWS

Internet, and the involvement of copyright law, times
have changed.

Now, in Poland, a priest caught using a plagiarized ser-
mon can face stiff fines or even as long as three years in
prison, though no one has actually been charged or sen-
tenced. The concern about ensuring that priests follow a
righteous path is what led to the publication of the
church’s book last month, said Przyczyna, who helped
edit the 150-page text that is available to Poland’s 28,000
priests for about $13. :

Przyczyna, a sermon expert at Krakow’s Pontifical
Academy of Theology, told The Associated Press that
existing sermons can be used — “but according to rules”
that forbid a word-for-word citation without properly
acknowledging their source.

“You need to give a clear signal: The text is not mine,”
he said. “If priests lack this kind of sensitivity, they
should at least be afraid of the law.” ©

In Poland, he said more and more clergy and church-
goers have reported a “spreading problem” of the lifting
of sermons, but no precise research has been done and
exact figures are just guesses.

It is an issue that is particularly sensitive in this coun-
try of 38 million people, where more than 90 percent of
the population is Catholic and many attend Sunday
Mass. Priests enjoy great moral authority, especially. in
rural areas. Przyczyna said that offending priests “were
not aware” that “they were acting immorally and ignor-
ing the copyright law” but “believed they were using the
Church’s public domain.”

“Saying a sermon means bearing witness to one’s own
faith, and how can you do that using someone else’s
text?” he said. “It is falsehood creeping into the preach-

Polish Catholic church cracks down on copied sermons

ing of truth that God is.” Przyczyna recounted a recent
encounter with a nun-in Krakow who said she had
stopped attending Masses by her favorite priest after he
delivered — word-for-word — a sermon she’d seen on
the Internet written by someone else. Parishioners at
another church — suspecting their priest of plagiarizing
— attended Mass with their own copies of a sermon
posted online for that specific Sunday. When the priest
delivered it verbatim, they met with him afterward and
privately rebuked him for the plagiarism.

The concern is not just local. The Biblioteka
Kaznodziejska, a bimonthly magazine that publishes ser-
mons, was checking whether a Polish text offered for the
February edition was actually a translation from the Rev.
Raniero Cantalamessa, an aide to Pope Benedict XVI.

It’s chief editor, the Rev. Maciej Kubiak, said that the
people lifting sermons mostly have been young priests in
cities who are Web-savvy but lack experience in speak-
ing publicly. “You see it in their approach to the Internet:
You can draw freely from whatever is there,” Kubiak
said. “Preparing a sermon means an effort but you must
be honest in it.”

For others, though, the issue pales to other concerns,
such as fighting poverty and spreading the faith.

“It sounds like tabloid news,” Jozsef Szikora, presi-
dent of the Association of Hungarian Catholic
Journalists, told AP, adding he had not heard of any pla-
giarism among priests in his own country.

Przyczyna, though, hopes the book will increase
awareness about plagiarism and cause priests to “be
afraid and embarrassed” to speak someone else’s words
without due credit.

Officers act after + films are
recorded on mobile phone

@ By MEGAN REYNOLDS
Tribune Staff Reporter

PORNOGRAPHIC videos
made by schoolchildren wear-
ing uniforms in their classroom

are the’subject of a police inves-.--

tigation launched yesterday.

The films, recorded on a
mobile phone, show several
men graphically molesting a
teenage girl in her school uni-
form, and two school pupils
having sex in the classroom.

. The videos have been sent to
pupils across Nassau by mobile
phone, ina frightening new
trend sweeping the nation. .

Asst Supt Paul Rolle, who
heads the Bahamas police
department for high-tech crime,
said pornography produced by
and for underage teens is an
emerging problem in The
_ Bahamas.

He said: “We have seen a
growing number of incidents
involving minors. | |

“But children who have this
material and share it'with others
will find themselves before the
court either criminally or civilly,
as they or their parents can be
sued for creating or possessing
this kind of material.”

_ ASP Rolle’s team launched

Govt ‘must form

plan for climate
change threat’

@ By ALISON LOWE
Tribune Staff Reporter

alowe@tribunemedia.net

THE government must form a strategic Ldepiatiod and mitigation _
plan to prepare for the multiple threats that climate change poses for
the islands, said a ministry of tourism official.

Director of Sustainable Tourism Development Planning Earlston
McPhee suggested that the Bahamas is lagging behind in this regard
compared with many other countries.

This is despite the fact that experts around the world have identi-
fied the Bahamas as one of the countries! topping lists of nations
which stand to lose most from climate change related changes —
including sea levél rise and more intense hurricanes.

Mr McPhee’s observations come as he recently returned from a
seminar on the issue at the UK’s prestigious Oxford University, enti-
tled “Climate change adaptation and mitigation.”

He said that he was really struck by the level of responsiveness in
other countries to the problems that cleats change may cause for
their territories and populations.

“Some of the countries have already started to put in place plans for
adaptation,” he said.

Representatives from 30 countries, including Greece, Turkey,
Puerto Rico and Uganda, participated in discussions on the vulner-
ability of tourism industries, small island states and developing coun-
tries in the face of the worldwide phenomena.

Discussions centred around presentations given by renowned inter-
national climate, environmental and economics experts in sustainable
tourism development.

Mr McPhee said that “the next step” for the Bahamas in address-
ing the issue is for all agencies of government to “come together with
a strategic plan” which must be supported by sufficient resources.

““We have to make sure that those areas where we are vulnerable
we put in place strategies to mitigate those threats,” he said.

In the United States at least five coastal states are working on cli-
mate change preparedness plans, according to the Pew Centre for Cli-
mate Change.

A Miami Dade task force is developing new standards for buildings,
roads, ports, airports and bridges in light of climate change, with
planning assuming sea level rise, saltwater intrusion and severe
weather. “If you look at the amount of hurricanes that are expected

. . what are the possibilities (in the Bahamas) ifwe have a category
five, a category four, in terms of tidal surge? We need to start look-
ing at how best we can maintain the integrity of our wetlands. We
need buildings set back. We need to look at how we develop and
develop sensibly,” said Mr McPhee.

The director said that it is “ludicrous” to imagine that climate
change is something that we do not need to take action on immedi-
ately. ,

“A lot of people think “We don’t have to worry now, this is in the
future. This is in 20 to 30 years. Why do we have to plan now?’
That’s ludicrous,” he said.

A World Bank study released in 2007 labelled the Bahamas as one
country among three for which the expected sea level rises will be

“potentially catastrophic.”

Out of 25 Latin American and Caribbean countries, the study
found that the Bahamas would, by a very significant degree, be the
most severely impacted.

The Tribune tried unsuccessfully to reach Arthur Rolle, chairman
of the Bahamas Environment Science and Technology Commis-
sion’s climate change committee.

Oil refining
company facility
sale ‘set for
completion’



Carl Bethel

@ By PAUL G TURNQUEST
Tribune Staff Reporter —
pturnquest@tribunemedia.net

THE SALE of the Bahamas
Oil Refining Company facility in
Grand Bahama to the First
Reserve Corporation is expected
to be completed by the end of
this month, Minister of Educa-
tion Carl Bethel said yesterday.

While making a contribution
in the House of Assembly on the
more than $9 billion dollars in
projected capital investment
signed by the government over
the past year, Mr Bethel said that
the National Economic Council
(NEC) had given approval for the
$900 million dollar sale that he
expects will be completed by
April 30.

“That is real money Mr Speak-
er, and of that money, I am happy
to inform this House — with the
consent of the minister of finance,
so the Bahamian people will
know what real money looks and
feels like — that the stamp duty
paid for on that transaction of $40
million dollars is now going to be
paid to the government,” Mr
Bethel said.

In addition to purchasing the
fledgling oil plant, Mr Bethel said
that the First Reserve Corpora-
tion has agreed to invest between
$300 million and $600 million dol-
lars in redeveloping the BORCO
facility.

The First Reserve Corporation
is a leading private equity firm
specalising in the energy indus-
try, which has partnered with
Royal Vopak, a Dutch company
that specialises in the storage and
handling of various oil and nat-
ural gas related products.

According to a news statment
from First Reserve “Vopak and
First Reserve agreed that the ter-
minal will be operated by Vopak
and according to Vopak’s global
operating standards and prac-
tices.”

In addition to this, Vopak will
acquire a 20 per cent interest in
the terminal, which will be named
Vopak Terminal Bahamas and
be operated as an “integral part
of the Vopak global network,” it
said.

$60,000 stolen
from City Market
in Freeport

@ BY DENISE MAYCOCK

dmaycock@tribunemedia.net

FREEPORT - A police inves-
tigation is underway into the theft
of substantial sums of money
from a City Market in Freeport,
The Tribune has learned.

According to sources, six
cashiers are being investigated in
‘connection with the theft of some
$60,000. It is believed that the
sum was removed over a period
of time.

When The Tribune contacted
Chief Supt Basil Rahming about
the matter, he said “it would be
prejudicial to the police investi-
gation to release any information
to the public about this matter at
this time.”

Man jailed for
drug offence

A MAN was sentenced to 30
months in prison and fined
$10,000 after pleading guilty toa
drug charge.

Windsor Bethel, of James Cis-
tern, Eleuthera and also of Ken-
wood Street off Mount Royal
Avenue, pleaded guilty to pos-
session of 13 pounds of marijuana
with the intent to supply the drugs
to another.

Court dockets alleged that on
Sunday, September 17, 2006
Bethel was found in possession
of a quantity of marijuana with
the intent to supply the same to
another.

Bethel, who appeared before
Magistrate Carolita Bethel at
court eight in Bank Lane on
Tuesday, pleaded guilty to the
charge.

He was told by the court that
failure to pay his fine will result in
an additional year in jail.

. ACCIDENT DRAMA: Kenyatta Gibson at the scene of Tuesday evening’s crash

@ By KARIN HERIG
Tribune Staff Reporter
kherig@tribunemedia.net

KENNEDY MP Kenyatta Gibson told The Tri-
bune yesterday that he is recovering “very well”
from his traumatic car crash on Tuesday evening.

Mr Gibson suffered minor facial injuries when
his Ford Expedition SUV veered off East Bay Street
and crashed through a fence near the basketball
court opposite the Hammerheads Bar and Grill.

The MP said yesterday that except for sustaining
a “bad cut” in his mouth, he was mostly unharmed

in the accident.

However, he admitted that although he feels fine
now, the crash was quite a traumatic experience for
him. “I was very scared when it happened. It’s the
kind of thing that makes you reconsider your life.



ly was a loud pop. That’s what witnesses said they
heard as well, a loud popping sound,” he said.

At the time of the accident yesterday evening,
the basketball court was full of players, but none of

the bystanders were injured as the large SUV
careened across a patch of grass and through a
chain-link fence.

One eye-witness speculated that a blow-out in
one of the vehicle’s front tyres could have caused Mr
Gibson to lose control.

After the crash, the visibly shaken MP was taken
to an upstairs room at the Hammerheads bar to
await medical treatment.

Mr Gibson said that although his injuries did not

than it really was, with the blood in my mouth and all

that. I was shaken,” he said.

As to the exact cause of the accident, the Inde-

vehicle swerving off the road. “All I heard sudden-

Doubts over future of $1.8bn project



THE workforce on the site of
the $1.8 billion development on
Mayaguana has been cut down
by two thirds, it has been claimed
— leading to speculation that the
project may be in jeopardy.

At a press conference held on
Tuesday, MICAL MP Alfred
Gray said that during a recent
trip to Mayaguana he was made
aware that the developers have
become “discouraged”.

“They have reduced the work-
force from about 68 when we left
office in 2007 to about 21 today,”
Mr Gray said. “They gave me no
reason and I suspect it must be
known to the government why
they are discouraged.”

The I-Group project, Mr Gray
said, is still going to continue, but
reportedly at a “very slow rate.”

The development is a 50/50
joint venture between the I-

. Group, a Boston based compa-

ny, and the Bahamas Hotel Cor-
poration, which is owned by the
government. Both parties own
the project through the Mayagua-
na Development Company.

The development covers some
10,000 acres and includes an air-
port, utilities, a marina village,
residential lots, private villas and
condos, a boutique resort and
nature preserves.

The Tribune was unable to
reach representatives from the
company yesterday.

The Mayaguana project was
signed under the PLP govern-
ment of Perry Christie, who tout-
ed it as one of the key develop-
ments under his “anchor project”
plan, which aimed to place. one
major resort on as many islands in
the Bahamas as possible.

The plan envisioned these pro-
jects would become a centre for
economic development, encour-
aging Bahamians who had left to
find work in Nassau or abroad to
return to take advantage of new
opportunities.

Why can’t Obama land the knockout blow?

HE’S never going to shake her off. Not all by
himself.

The very fact that he can’t shake her off has
become her best argument against him. “Why
can’t he close the deal?” Hillary taunted at a
polling place on Tuesday.

She’s been running ads about it, suggesting he
doesn’t have “what it takes” to run the country.
Her message is unapologetically emasculating:
If he does not have the gumption to put me in
my place, when superdelegates are deserting
me, money is drying up, he’s outspending me 2-
to-1 on TV ads, my husband’s going crackers
and party leaders are sick of me, how can he be
trusted to totally obliterate Iran and stop

*Osama?

Now that Hillary has won Pennsylvania, it
will take a village to help Obama escape from
the suffocating embrace of his rival. Certainly
Howard Dean will be of no use steering her to
the exit. It’s like Micronesia telling Russia to
denuke. “You know, some people counted me
out and said to drop out,” she said at her victo-
ry party in Philadelphia, with Bill and Chelsea
by her side. “But the American people...well,
the American people don’t quit. And they

deserve a president who doesn’t quit, either.” -

The Democrats are growing ever more des-
perate about the Attack of the 50 Foot Woman.
With gas prices out of control, with the comi-

cally oblivious President Bush shimmying -
aroundNew Orleans =~ the city he-let-drown — *
and. Condi sneaking into’ Baghdad as .rockets |
and mortars hail down on the Green:Zone, \\:

beating the Republicans should be a cinch.
But the Democrats watch in horror as Hillary
continues to scratch up the once silvery sheen on
Obama, and as John McCain not only consoli-
dates his own party but encroaches on theirs by
boldly venturing into Selma, Ala., on Monday to
woo black voters. They also cringe as Bill con-
tinues his honey-crusted-nut-bar meltdown.
With his usual exquisite timing, just as Penn-
sylvanians were about to vote, Hillary’s hus-
band became the first person ever to play the
Caucasian Card. First, he blurted out to a radio
interviewer that the Obama camp had played
the race card against him after he compared
Obama’s strength in South Carolina to Jesse

Jackson’s. And then, with a Brobdingnagian.

finger-wagging on the screen, he denied it to an
NBC News reporter.

“You always follow me around and play these
little games, and I’m not going to play your
games today,” he said, accusing the reporter of
looking for “another cheap story to divert the
American people from the real urgent issues
before us.”

If there’s one person who knows about crass
diversions, it’s Bill. But even for him, it was an
embarrassing explosion, capped with some blue
language to an aide that was caught on air.

The Democrats are eager to move on to an
Obama-McCain race. But they can’t because
no one seems to be able to show Hillary the
door. Despite ail his incandescent gifts, Obama
has missed several opportunities to smash the
ball over the net and end the game. Again and
again, he has seemed stuck at deuce. He com-
plains about the politics of scoring points, but to
win, you’ve got to score points.

He knew he tanked in the Philadelphia
debate, but he was so irritated by the modera-
tors — and by having to stand next to Hillary
again — that he couldn’t summon a single mer-
ry dart. Is he skittish around her because he
knows that she detests him and he’s used to
charming everyone? Or does he feel guilty that
he cut in line ahead of her? As the husband of
Michelle, does he know better than to defy the
will of a'strong woman? Or is he simply scared
of Hillary because she’s scary?

He is frantic to get away from her because he
can’t keep carbo-loading to relate to the com-
mon people. In the final days in Pennsylvania,
he dutifully logged time at diners and force-
fed himself waffles, pancakes, sausage and a
Philly cheese steak. He split the pancakes with
Michelle, left some of the waffle and sausage
behind, and gave away the French fries that

came with the cheese steak.

But this is clearly a man who can’t wait to get
back to his organic scrambled egg whites. That
was made plain with his cri de coeur at the Glid-
er Diner in Scranton when a reporter asked
him about Jimmy Carter and Hamas.

“Why,” he pleaded, sounding a bit, dare we

say, bitter, “can’t I just eat my waffle?”

His subtext was obvious: Why can’t I just be
president? Why do I have to keep eating these
gooey waffles and answering these gotcha ques-
tions and debating this gonzo woman?

Before they devour themselves once more,
perhaps the Democrats will take a cue from Dr
Seuss’ “Marvin K. Mooney Will You Please
Go Now!” (The writer once mischievously redid
it for his friend: Art Buchwald as “Richard M

- Nixon Will You Please Go Now!”) They could

sing:

“The time has come. The time has come. The
time is now. Just go...I don’t care how. You can
go by foot. You can go by cow. Hillary R Clin-
ton, will you please go now! You can go on
skates. You can go on skis. ... You can go in an
old blue shoe. Just go, go, GO!” (Maureen
Dowd, New York Times)

the executive candidates in the
2008-2009 COBUS election had
only two days to petition their
supporters to elect them for the
various positions. Even though
the election excitement was
high at The College of The
Bahamas, the mood came to an
end on March 28th at 9pm even
though there were some con-
troversies, a new President
along with executive members
were announced.

The two days of election like
previous COBUS executive
administration elections were
filled with controversy. On the
first of the election, the polling
stations were not opened on the
allotted time, students’ names
were missing from their school
registers, insufficient ballot

papers were available at one .

polling station and many other
miscellaneous activities that
caused many to question the
integrity of the election process
and the outcome. However, the
COBUS election committee
was hard at work to solve all of
these glitches and by day one
of the elections an unofficial
count of more than 900 students
had come out to cast their votes.
The number of voters who
showed up to vote was a sweep-
ing success according to mem-
bers of COBUS bécause previ-
ous elections saw declining
number of student participation
of less than 10 per cent of the
student population who decided
to vote. Why did so many stu-
dents vote during this election?
Does the turnout in the student
body voting population indicate
that the trust in the COBUS has
been restored?

Moreover, the most contro-
versial argument that one can

use to oppose the election
results was what happened on
day two of the election. The clo-

sure of the polling station at the .

Nursing campus on the final day
on the election could have had.a
major impact on the results. The
reason for this is because a large
proportion of registered nurs-
ing students who did not have
sufficient opportunity to vote
for the candidate of their choice
as other students on the main
college campus site. Also, this is
extremely sad especially when a
large number of nursing stu-
dents have expressed. concern
of feeling a sense of disassocia-
tion and neglect with regard to

_ their concerns as students.

Nevertheless, there has been
no official word of any, Presi-
dential candidates contesting
the election results. Has
COBUS’ election process
proven:to be unfair once again?

The race for COBUS Presi-
dent was a hard one for the stu-
dent body to predict with three
leading candidates namely: Mr
Delvano McIntosh, Mr Perry
Newton and Ms Shaveka
Cleare. All Presidential ‘hope-
fuls campaigned until the very
last minute but reality was final-
ly realized on.the night of
March 28th, 2008 at about
2.30am after the ballots were
counted and with a landslide
victory Mr Perry Newton was
declared the official President
of COBUS, Tavaris Sands as
Vice President and other exec-
utive members. Mr Newton has
made history as being the oldest
elected President in the history

‘of the college. This is of great

significance because many tried
to play that his age disenfran-
chised him and would result in
his defeat. However, his victory
serves as a source of hope not

only for those who are young
at heart but even for the young
people who study at COB. In
addition, his experience and
wisdom as Pastor and former
Superintendent of Police in the
Royal Bahamas Police Force is
a key component that can great-
ly assist the student body espe-
cially with the recent student
security concerns at this critical
stage in COB’s transition to the
University of The Bahamas
along with the other adminis-
trative changes that are cur-
rently underway at this time.
In conclusion, even though
the new appointees may have
seemed to have secured their
positions they would not have
to bear such responsibilities
until July 1, 2008 when they offi-
cially take office but the road
looks great ahead. However,
one responsibility that the new
administration does not have to
worry about is the long over-
due registration problem. After
several failed attempts the out-
going COBUS along with
administration has worked
together to ensure that online
registration was successful for
students for the past few days.
But, if Mr Newton continues on
the path that he is currently on
he can likely provide a powerful
and objective voice for the stu-
dent body on the College Coun-
cil which has been reported by
many former COBUS admin-
istrations as the main reason for
their inability to operate effec- :
tively to the concerns of the stu-
dent body. The future is looking
bright for the dream of our
ancestors and this present gen-
eration which is to see the
authentically Bahamian built
University of The Bahamas
with limited outside input.

FREEPORT - The Grand

spent more than half a million
dollars for road improvement
projects in an effort to relieve
traffic congestion at several

Allison Campbell, an official

FNM campaign official’s right

to vote in Marco City

@ By BRENT DEAN
Tribune Staff Reporter
bdean@tribunemedia.net

THE CHAIRMAN of the FNM’s
Marco City branch defended the
right of a party campaign ‘general’ to
vote in the constituency yesterday,
telling the Election Court that
Charles Lowe did live in the con-
stituency in the relevant period
before the election.

The court has heard testimony
from numerous witnesses brought
forward by Pleasant Bridegwater,
who stated that the number 91
Adventurers Way home Mr Lowe
registered at was abandoned or dilap-
idated at and after the last election.

Kendal Culmer Jr, who has been
the FNM Marco City chairman since

February 2008, said that he and Mr.

Lowe worked together during the
last campaign. Mr Culmer was a part
of Mr Laing’s campaign for the sev-

en to eight month period leading up
to the May 2 election.

Mr Culmer testified that he
dropped Mr Lowe off at the loca-
tion and picked him up in the morn-
ing on numerous occasions. In his
estimation, Mr Culmer told the court,
the home was livable, which contra-
dicts what other witnesses have said.

The yard was not chronically
unkempt and overgrown, according
to Mr Culmer’s testimony. Rather, he
said, it was usually kept.

From his visits to the house,
though he did not enter, Mr Culmer
said he did not notice broken doors
or windows in the front of the house,
as has been suggested in other testi-
mony.

Melinda Adderley-Davis, who is

being challenged by Ms Bridgewa-

ter, also took the witness stand yes-
terday. She currently lives in Eight
Mile Rock; however she has moved
several times over the last few years.

defended

She lived in Eight Mile Rock with
her husband and his mother in 2005,
but began to go back and forth
between Grand Bahama and Florida
for medical treatment sometime in
the middle of the year after she dis-
covered that she was pregnant. Mrs
Davis was having difficulties with the
pregnancy, she said.

Upon returning to Grand Bahama
in January 2006, the witness said she
lived with her father at 141 Dampier
Drive, which is in Marco City. She
said she lived there until after the
election, while her husband lived in
Eight Mile Rock. During the period
at Dampier Drive she also spent
some time at her mother’s residence
in North Bahamia.

She said she returned to Eight

maleneela le ECG



Mile Rock because her husband
began to insist that they all —- Mrs
Davis, their two children and him —
live under one roof.

Mrs Davis said that she lived at
Dampier Drive when she returned
because the home at Eight Mile
Rock was crowded and she felt com-
fortable at Dampier Drive.

She also said that Dampier Drive
is closer to the Rand hospital and
the airport than Eight Mile Rock.
Mrs Davis said she required follow-
up trips to doctor after she had her
baby.

Fred Smith, Mr Laing’s lead attor-
ney, will continue questioning the
witness this morning.

On Tuesday, Ms Bridgewater
dropped Monica Augustine from her
list of challenged voters. There are
now 81 challenged voters on her list

- and 23 challenged voters on the list of

Mr Laing.

MP blames
economic
problems on.
FNM govt

@ By PAUL TURNQUEST
Tribune Staff Reporter
pturnquest@tribunemedia.net

PLP MP for West End and
Bimini Obie Wilchcombe
charged yesterday that the eco-
nomic problems Bahamians are
facing are not due to the sub-
prime loan troubles in the Unit-
ed States, but rather the sub-
par performance of the FNM
government.

“External factors do not
cause you to surrender. Exter-
nal factors happen, you are to
respond with creativity, with
innovation. You are not to
abandon and blame it on some-
body else, but the truth of the
matter is that is what you we
have been doing,” Mr Wilch-
combe told the FNM in the
House of Assembly yesterday.

He also said Minister of }

Housing Kenneth Russell dis-
played hypocrisy when he
claimed that former minister
of local government Alfred
Gray did nothing while in
office.

Alleging that Mr Russell has
yet to build one house since
taking office, Mr Wilchcombe
said that as this is an Olympic
year, Mr Russell should receive
a medal for having a perfect
season.

“The issue is this Mr Deputy,
there are thousands of Bahami-

ans on a wait list looking for a

house.

“And yet they promised
3,000 houses in their same man-
ifesto that the member for
North Abaco quoted from
today,” he said.

Nottage addresses House on the
importance of freedom of speech

@ By KARIN HERIG
Tribune Staff Reporter
kherig@tribunemedia.net .

A WEEK after the PLP
walked out of parliament fol-
lowing the Speaker’s refusal to
allow the discussion of the Mona
Vie controversy, Dr Bernard
Nottage yesterday addressed the
House of Assembly on the
importance of freedom of |
speech.

In a special communication,
Dr Nottage, the leader of oppo-
sition business in the House, said
that freedom of speech is a prin-
ciple which the Bahamian par-
liament has upheld for the past
279 years.

“Without the exercise of this
principle, we who sit in here
today would have no legitimacy in this place,” he said.

During last week’s sitting of the House, the opposition members
walked out of parliament in protest after Speaker Alvin Smith attempt-
ed to throw out St Thomas More MP Frank Smith for discussing issues
related to the Mona Vie scandal. |

As a law suit has been filed in the case, the Sodas stated that he con-
sidered the matter to be sub judice and therefore ruled that it should not
be discussed in the House.

Earlier this month, Minister of State for Finance Zhivargo Laing’s
lawyer Fred Smith filed a defamation suit against MPs Bernard Nottage,
Frank Smith and the former Comptroller ‘of Customs John Rolle

The sub judice rule limits public discussion of matters before the court.

However, Dr Nottage told parliament } yesterday that ‘the rule was nev-

Dr Bernard Nottage



~ erintended to prev ent:a member of parliament from spéaking “to any

and all matters that are before the courts.”

“If that were so, it would make a mockery of the very foundation of

parliament and of the principle of freedom of speech,” he said.

St Thomas More MP Mr Smith last week in parliament sought to
address the concerns of his constituents regarding the law suit against
him.

Mr Smith told the House that the matter was not before the courts,
but the Speaker did not allow him to continue with the topic and
ordered him to take his seat.

After a back and forth between members of the government and
opposition side, Mr Smith rose to his feet and attempted to again speak
on the Mona Vie issue. He was ordered by the Speaker to remove
himself from the House for “disrespecting the authority of the Speak-
er.”

Dr Nottage yesterday said that while members should never com-

‘promise the integrity of a matter before the court, the rules of the

House arm the Speaker with the power of using his discretion in deter-
mining when a member has gone too far.

“Surely merely calling a member’s name who claimed to have put a
matter before the court, or getting only as far as to. make one sen-

i, tence, cainot and does not qualify as having gone too far.

“We the opposition are strongly of the view that any ruling by the
chair that prevents a member from exercising his ancient and undoubt-
ed right to speak should — no, must — be made only after the most
considered and thoughtful consideration,” he said.

boaters.

The tragedy has also brewed a
political storm, as the former
PLP government have lashed out
at the ruling FNM party for not
following through with an inter-
national agreement intended to
reduce the number of Haitians
migrating into the country.

A spokesman for the opposi-
tion party said: "The Ingraham
government has been shockingly
inept and insensitive to the need
to be proactive with regard to
the Haitian dilemma and its
impact on the Bahamas.

"Chief among these strategies
ought to be revisiting the agree-
ment between the Haitian gov-
ernment and the Bahamas nego-
tiated by the PLP which awaits
signature by the two govern-
ments."

FNM chairman Johnley Fer-
guson said the agreement,
whereby the Bahamian govern-
ment would pay for migrants to
return to Haiti, could not be
implemented while Haitians con-
tinue to escape Haiti illegally.

He said: "We found that when
they go back to Haiti they will
leave again within a week or two.
They just get on a boat and head

' west.

“Some will end up in Florida,
and some in the Bahamas.

"It is a very sad situation for
everybody, but if people want to
take the risk’ to move you
annot blame the government
of the country they pass
through."

Mr Ferguson said the expan-
sion of the RBDF in Inagua and
Mayaguana will increase sea
patrols in the southern Bahamas
and help reduce the number of
tragedies.

He said: "Until that happens
we have a problem and we need
ta recognise that it is not a polit-
ical problem, it is a problem for
the whole of the Bahamas."

Native trees planted in
Grand Bahama schools

@ By DENISE MAYCOCK
Tribune Freeport Reporter
dmaycock@tribunemedia.net

FREEPORT - In awareness of Earth Day,
the Keep Grand Bahama Clean Committee
has planted native trees at the Hugh Campbell
Primary and Tabernacle Baptist Academy.

Kim Miller, public relations officer at the
GB Port Authority, said the tree planting was
held at the schools to sensitise students to the
importance of the environment and to com-
memorate Earth Day, which is observed on
April 22.

Earth Day has been internationally .

observed since 1970 to promote awareness of
environmental issues. Today, more than 500
million people and national governments in
175' countries observe the day.

Ms Miller said that preservation of the envi-
ronment is very important. She stated that
the Grand Bahama Port Authority spear-
headed the ‘Keep Grand Bahama Clean’
Campaign in 2006, in conjunction with the
Department of Environmental Health Ser-

vices, the Urban Renewal Programme and
the Sanitation Services.

She said: “It was felt that the national tree
— the Lignum Vitae — was the best tree for the
tree planting in observation of Earth Day.”

Rico Cargill, environmental officer at the
Port Authority, said the Keep Grand Bahama
Clean Committee aims not just to keep the
environment clean, but also to bring about a
change of culture when it comes to the envi-
ronment.

Culture

“We are faced in the country with trying to
change the culture of Bahamians towards the
environment, and so want to create a complete
paradigm shift so that we as a people can
become better stewards of the environment,”
he said. .

Mr Cargill said that the Port Authority has
introduced several recycling programmes on
the island through its industrial partners and
various schools.

He noted that a used oil programme is
underway at the BORCO, and an aluminum
can recycling pilot project has started at some
schools,,

“We placed recycling bins at some schools
several months ago for the collection of alu-
minum cans. We recently turned over this
programme to another company to manage
for profit and funds will be donated back to
schools,” he said.

Mr Cargill stated that over the next several
weeks they plan to launch the recycling pro-
grammes in several communities.

“Right now, we are using the schools as a
pilot programme ‘to change culture toward
recycling. We feel that over the next five or 10
years, we want to get Bahamians toward the
point where we can be more environmentally
conscious by recycling and reusing, and cre-
ating more sustainable developments and pro-
jects. We want to address the problem, not the
symptom.

“Right now, this is a small step, but we are
hoping that it can spread on the national lev-
el,” he said. ,

BAHAMIAN students aged
eight through 12 have been invited
to participate in the 16th annual
Condé Nast Traveler, “My
Caribbean” essay contest and
speech competition.

After 15 successful years of
backing the contest, the New York
publishing giant, Condé Nast, will
once again sponsor the competi-
tion in conjunction with the .
Caribbean Tourism Organisation,
the Bahamas Ministry of Tourism
and Aviation, the Ministry of Edu-
cation, the Bahamas Hotel Asso-
ciation and the Toastmasters
organisation.

The competition “celebrates the
beauty of the Caribbean region
and the potential of its children,”
according to the magazine’s vice
president and publisher, Lisa
Hughes.

soring the essay/ speech competi-

The 1st place winner will attend
the conference as the main com-
ponent of their grand prize. The
bigger grand prize at stake in the
British Virgin Islands is $2,000 plus
publication of the winner’s speech
in Condé Nast’s Traveler maga-
zine — a periodical with worldwide
distribution. Two runners-up will
also be selected at the CTC-13,
both receiving monetary gifts of
$500.

Entries to the competition must
be handwritten, double-spaced,
on letter-sized, lined paper and be
anywhere from 250 to 500 words —
no more, no less. Essays will be
judged on six characteristics, with
the 20 best essays being presented
in the local speech finals at the
Atlantis Resort on May 22.

Toddler’s death

died at Doctors Hospital on
August 20, 2002, five days
after he was struck by a speed-
boat which had crashed on to
the beach where he slept.
The toddler was on holiday
with his family at the Atlantis
resort on Paradise Island. The
jury was also directed to find
Evangeless Williamson not
guilty on two counts of per-
jury. Acting Justice Lockhart
told the jury to find the men
not guilty on the charges
because of what had tran-
spired in their absence.
_ As the men were being told

that they were free to go, John
McGuckion, the brother of
Andrea Gallagher - the tod-
dler’s mother - raised a
large photo of Paul Gallagher
Jr.

As Acting Justice Lockhart
was leaving the bench,
McGuckion shouted: “Justice
has died in this courtroom
today. This is a complete trav-
esty of justice.”

Paul and Andrea Gallagher,
who were also witnesses at the
trial which was into its second
week, were not present when
the verdicts were handed
down yesterday but were back
at their hotel room, according
to McGuckion, who gave a

statement on their behalf out-
side court.

“Today’s verdict has been a
miscarriage of justice. Justice
has not been delivered today
and this Supreme Court trial
here in Nassau has dealt a
body blow to the law of the
land and the good people of
the Bahamas,” McGuckion
said.

Following the death of their
son, the Gallaghers embarked
on a campaign for justice
which ultimately led to
charges being brought against
Bain, 30, the speedboat dri-
ver, Nottage, 54, and
Williamson, 66 - the owners
of the boat.

ness of child sexual abuse and violence.
She said: “This material is really horrific
and it is well known that viewing violence
increases violence, and can lead to emo-
tional desensitisation to violence, so view-
ing of this kind will prevent young people
from developing the emotional tools they
need to become good citizens and be the
kind of people we want to live in our

world.”

She added: “I think technology has pro-
pelled our children into a minefield and
they really do not realise the implications it

has.

“When they are capable of understand-
ing what they have done, they will look
back and ask why didn't anybody warn us?
We have to confront it and do what we

can to protect our children.”

Dr Patterson believes the activity, stems
from a normal teenage compulsion to take
risks and push boundaries, but increased
exposure to an adult world through
advances in technology has made their

behaviour more damaging.

She said: “Our children are pretty vul-
nerable because so many of them grow up
without proper supervision, at home and in
school, so they are being raised by their
peer group and get involved in this behav-
iour which is so self-destructive.”

The unsolved murders have received significant
media attention with many calling for police to
intensify their investigations and bring the killer or
killers before the courts.

On Tuesday, Police Commissioner Reginald
Ferguson told The Tribune both cases were still
active, but more time and patience were needed

from the public.

“T would like nothing more than to arraign some-
body. But one of the key elements on investigations

is patience and we have got to do a whole lot of

exploration and take time.”
In an earlier interview, ASP Leon Bethel said
forensic evidence uncovered at the scene needs

to be corroborated by witnesses in order for the

investigations to move forward.

Obie Wilchcombe hits out over
alleged firing of social workers

m@ By PAUL TURNQUEST
Tribune Staff Reporter

PLP MP Obie Wilchcombe lashed out at the alleged firing of
45 social workers from the Ministry of Social Services in the
House of Assembly yesterday.

“These people were working, you would get a return on your
investment,” he said, raising the question of whether the public
is getting an adequate return on the 20- plus Cabinet ministers it
is paying for under the FNM.

The debate became heated at this point, as members of the
opposition and the government began speaking across the floor
from their seats, and the Deputy Speaker had to call for the
House to come to order.

“We must not have illusions of democracy where you start to
speak and then you are stopped from speaking because members
on this side are saying, the cost of electricity is going up, the cost
of oil is going up, commodity prices all over the world are
going up ‘between 80 and 100 per cent,” Mr Wilchcombe con-
tinued.

“Prices continue to be sky high and the only HDS that has
gone down is the cost of Mona Vie,” he said.

Numbers of Kirtland’s warblers
in New Providence double in 2008

@ Report and

A LITTLE over a year ago
I was able to report in your

Bahamian birds, the Kirt-
land’s Warbler (Dendroica
kirtlandii) in New Provi-
dence.

It was a rare sighting. The
bird summers and nests

some thousands of these

from the bird song the num-

Nevertheless the bird in
rarely sighted in the
Bahamas. Occasionally it is
observed in Abaco and
Eleuthera but there had not
been a reported sighting of a
Kirtland’s Warbler on this
island for over a hundred
years It was thought that
amongst all the development
on New Providence there was
no remaining habitat for a
bird that was known in
Michigan to be choosy both
as to its food and the small
size of the young Jack Pine
trees beneath which it could
nest.

But that is Michigan and
this is the Bahamas. It is
becoming apparent that the
bird leads quite a different
life style when it winters
here. None of the Kirtland’s
Warblers we have seen in
Eleuthera, Abaco and now in
New Providence made its
habitat in or near to pines.

Last year a single bird was
found by chance in Central
New Providence and
although the area was “gone
over” for a couple of days
only one Kirtland’s Warbler
put in an appearance. He was

would have seen for them-
selves from the photographs
I took and you published.

Kirtland’s'Warblers are
noticeably larger than most
other warblers and their
slightly larger size seems to
make them less timid. If not
tame they are positively curi-
ous and seek to pose for the
camera in the open perched
high in bushes and trees par-
ticularly in the Spring when
they are foraging for berries
to build up strength for their
long migration flight back to
Michigan.

The males have blue grey
heads and backs and vivid
yellow undersides all with
black streaking. A field iden-
tification feature is that the
top and bottom white eye-
ring is broken at the sides.

I am able to report that last
week our team of three Paul
Dean Lee Hanna and myself
were able to see two Kirt-
land’s Warblers in the same
location. So the New Provi-
dence population has dou-
bled and there may have
been others in the vicinity.



.Both birds seen were male.
The first one sighted caught.

Paul’s attention by his calls
continuing almost without a
break. He was. maturer and
bigger and more brightly
feathered. Just possibly it
might have been the same
bird we saw last year.

Unique

If so he brought back with
him last autumn at least one
other bird to join in his
colony. The second bird dis-
covered nearby was a
younger male, possibly in its
first year. However this
young bird was unique. He
did not just call but he kept
repeating his full warbler
summer song. He was proba-
bly practicing to be note per-
fect next month in Michigan.

For Paul Dean that was a
first. He has never heard a
Kirtland’s Warbler in full
song in the Bahamas before
nor does he know of any pre-
vious report of this: He was
quick to tape the song. So if



anyone knows of a previous

‘report of a Kirtland’s in full

song in the Bahamas please
let us know.

I was quick to get pho-
tographs of both birds on my
new Canon 1Ds Mk III which
I was taking out on its first
experimental run. One pho-
tograph is alongside this arti-
cle. .
So both birds were first
identified by sound. They
were not found by being
trapped in mist nets nor
homed in on a radio beam.
They were nor attracted with
tape recordings. Neither of
the two birds were banded
nor was the bird last year.
Long may that remain so.

They seemed well fed and
ready for their flight North
which is hard enough even
without both legs laden with
numerous bands and a trans-
mitter on the back. So good
luck and we hope you return
this autumn with friend or
relatives and do not find your
habitat overtaken by a sub-
division.

Oh, to be born free.

Rising food prices, invasive species in
_ focus at plant health directors meeting

At a time when countries the world over are
developing strategies to deal with the chal-
lenges brought on by rising food prices and
the real threat of food shortage, Caribbean
plant health officials will meet this week to
discuss positioning themselves to positively
contribute to the issue of rising food prices.

In this inaugural meeting, regional plant
health officials from across the Caribbean are
expected to engage in discussions on issues of
access to and availability of food.

They say they will strategise on how to for-
mulate the movement of plant and plant prod-
ucts across Caribbean countries.

The meeting, at the CARICOM Secretariat
headquarters in Guyana, js being hosted by
the Secretariat in partnership with the United
States Department of Agriculture Animal and
Plant Health Inspection Service (USDA
APHIS), the Inter-American Institute for Co-
operation on-Agriculture (IICA), the Food
and Agriculture Organisation of the United
Nations (FAO) and CIRAD.

“There is tremendous potential for trade in
plant and plant products in the Caribbean but
the issue of plant pests is one which poses seri-
ous constraints to that potential for trade.
Therefore the focus is oni seeking to find solu-
tions for more effective prevention, manage-
ment and control strategies for pest threats in
the region,” said Ms Margaret Kalloo, deputy

programmer manager for agriculture al the
CARICOM Secretariat.

She added that while countries are seeking to
improve availability and access to food, coun-
tries need to be enabled to “more efficiently
and effectively move agricultural products
across the borders of the Caribbean countries.”

In this regard the issue. of invasive species
will be on the front burner as these continue to
negatively impact on trade in plant and plant
products in the Caribbean.

In the not too distant past, Caribbean couni-
tries were faced with an outbreak of Pink
Hibiscus Mealybug (PHMB) which devastated
crops such as okras, papaya and sorrel. The
countries have also had to deal with infesta-
tions of fruit flies which impact on the export
of most fruits. The outbreak of Black Sigatoka
continues to be a source of concern for banana

_ producers.

Currently, Caribbean countries are faced
with a serious attack on palms, including
coconut trees with the outbreak of the Red
Palm Mite.

This has adversely affected the domestic
trade in and national consumption of coconut
water as prices have increased as a result of
decreased production.

A proposal to deal with the issue of invasive
species will be presented to the meeting, organ-
isers say.

Delta reports $6.4b loss in My Bahamas tour uncovers
first quarter on fuel costs ©



@ ATLANTA

DELTA Air Lines Inc., the
nation’s third-largest carrier, said
Wednesday its loss widened in
the first quarter to a whopping
$6.39 billion because of soaring
fuel prices and the steep decline
in the company’s market value,
according to Associated Press.

The results badly missed Wall
Street expectations, despite a 12
percent increase in sales.

The Atlanta-based company
said the loss is equivalent to
$16.15 a share. That compares
with a loss of $130 million that
Delta reported in the year-ago
January-March quarter, when it
was still in bankruptcy.

Excluding special items, pri-
marily a $6.1 billion non-cash
charge relating to the decline in
Delta’s market value due to sus-
tained record fuel prices, the air-
line lost $274 million, or 69 cents
a share, in the first quarter.

Analysts were expecting a
Delta loss of 49 cents a share,
excluding one-time items.

Revenue in the quarter rose
to $4.77 billion, compared with
$4.24 billion recorded in the

shares rose 10 cents in premar-
ket trading to $6.90, just off a
52-week low of $6.70.

Delta said its first-quarter loss
before special items was driven
by a $585 million year-over-year
increase in the cost of fuel.

Delta’s shares have fallen
nearly 69 percent since the air-
line emerged from Chapter 11
on April 30, 2007.

Delta announced April 14
that it has agreed to acquire
Northwest Airlines Corp. in a
stock-swap deal that, if approved
by regulators and shareholders,
would create the world’s largest
airline. Northwest was also
scheduled to release first-quarter
results Wednesday.

“Our need to respond to the
pressures of dramatically rising
fuel costs and a softening U.S.
economy drove us to take a clos-
er look at all options to protect
Delta’s future,” Chief Executive
Richard Anderson said in a
statement.

“The merger with Northwest
will create an airline with the
size, scale and global presence to
weather economic downturns
and compete long-term in the

MINISTRY of Tourism and
Aviation officials soaked up a
long list of Inagua’s best kept
secrets this week during a
three-day media trip that was
part of the My Bahamas cam-
paign.

“Even as director general,
there are still some surprises,
and Inagua is coming through
with them right away,”
Tourism Director General
Vernice Walkine said on her
first day on the island.

Ms Walkine told a gather-
ing of Inaguans that she would
spend her time on the island
learning about Inagua’s
unique features. She said she
and her staff would look for
opportunities to promote the
island and to suggest ideas for
developing it in ways that are
appropriate to its special char-
acteristics.

west, and some residents
believe the island’s mountain-
ous neighbours have shielded
it from the worst effects of
hurricanes.

Some have Siagested that
the publicising Inagua’s hur-
ricane avoidance record
should encourage businesses
and tourism developments to
be established on the island.

Island Administrator Pre-

ston Cunningham is among
those who believe businesses
could find Inagua attractive.

“Inagua may have had
maybe two hurricanes in the
last 100 years,” he said. “Hur-
ricanes don’t strike here, and
that in itself is a plus.”

Mr Cunningham pointed out
that Inagua also has a large
variety of wildlife which



Derek Smith/BIS

inhabits huge tracts of unde-
veloped land. Many Bahami-
ans do not realise that Inagua
is the country’s third largest
island with 599 square miles
of terrain.

The island is also home to
one of last three kerosene
lighthouses still operating in
the Bahamas.

Mr Cunningham said Inagua





needs to increase the number
of hotel rooms it offers.

“J figure once the rooms are
available, then the Ministry of
Tourism would be in a posi-
tion to properly market
Peaeus as they would need

he said. “You would
aeisand that once you
begin to market, then you
must be in a position to
accommodate. So you must
make sure then that these
rooms are available.”

Charity Armbrister, direc-
tor for the Family Islands in
the Ministry of Tourism and
Aviation, said she saw poten-
tial for developing Inagua’s
nature tourism.

“Obviously, Inagua, like the
song says, is one of the best

_ kept secrets,” she said. “But I

think that while we maintain it

“as one of the best kept secrets,

there are too many opportu-
nities that we have not
embraced. J think this would
be a great trip for school kids
in particular to come and learn
about the National Park here
in Inagua.”

‘Ministry of Tourism and
Aviation recently held
Bahamahost sessions in
Inagua, but Ms Armbrister
said there is a need for more
training.

Ministry officials will have
to focus on increasing the
number of tour guides that are
able to conduct high-quality
tours for visitors on the island,
she said.

‘In addition to Inagua, the

_ My Bahamas public awareness

campaign has taken media
representatives to Long Island
and Cat Island this year to
expose more of the islands’
qualities to Bahamians. Direc-
tor General Walkine said she
expects the My Bahamas ini-
tiative to continue into the
next budget year.

Four vehicle crash sees

two police officers,
SU IEMMEL Camm Ute)



TWO police officers and a woman had to
be taken to hospital yesterday after a police
vehicle ended up on top of a pick-up truck fol-
lowing a crash involving four vehicles.

The incident occurred around 12.45pm when
officers responding to a firearms complaint
struck a grey Toyota Camry which allegedly
pulled out in their path as they travelled on
Robinson Road.

As a result of this collision the pales vehicle
mounted a red truck, also damaging a bur-
gundy vehicle parked next to the truck, which

in turn was pushed into a nearby grey Nissan
Bluebird.

No passengers were reported to have been in
those cars at the time, but the police officers
involved were placed on stretchers and one

female passenger from the Toyota suffered a

facial wound.

All were taken to hospital.

Asst Supt Shannador Evans said the male
driver of the Toyota, who is alleged to have
been responsible for the incident, removed the
licence disc from the car and fled on foot.

porations to overcome financial and operational
hurdles facing the organisations, Minister of
State for Utilities Phenton Neymour disclosed.
The news follows confirmation that Leon
Williams, president of the government-owned

telecoms company BTC, has been asked to resign.”

While stressing that no “formal decision” had
been made to date on possible high level restruc-
turing, Minister Neymour dismissed speculation
that certain BEC executives were asked to resign
or be transferred to WSC amid rumblings of an
internal shake-up at BEC.

“We have been reviewing the structure of both
the Water and Sewage Corporation and BEC to
see where the management team can be enhanced
and how the structure can be improved. But no
formal decision has been made to date,” Mr Ney-
mour said during an interview with The Tribune.

While acknowledging there were some mat-
ters concerning financial irregularities and losses
at BEC, Mr Neymour said the evaluation is
geared towards making the hemorrhaging utility
company more efficient.

“This (review) has to do with the performance
of the organisation, we are looking at ways to
make it more efficient. As energy is becoming
more and more costly we have to look at weve to
make BEC more efficient.

“In regards to BEC, I have stated over the last
year that (it) has faced a number of challenges
both operationally and financially...and their

financial situation is going downhill and the gov-
ernment is seriously looking at (how to address)
this.”

Both utility companies have been criticised
recently for significant financial losses.

In his mid-year budget report in March, Mr
Neymour said BEC’s losses for the 2006/2007 fis-

_.cal year - which énded on September 30, 2007 -~

are expected to total $10.2 million.

He also said initial reports indicated losses in
the 2007/2008 fiscal year could reach $11 million.
The government-run electricity company has also
come under heavy criticism for frequent power
outages in the capital and Harbour Island.

During the same address, Minister Neymour
said WSC was. in a “seriously sad position” and
was operating under “cash flow restraints and
gross indebtedness to vendors”.

BEC general manager Kevin Basden said he
was not aware of any employees being asked to
resign and said that “no changes have occurred in
the corporation”.

When asked if he anticipated any high-level
restructuring in the near future, he replied: “Well,
I can't speak to what may or may not happen. I
mean, in any organisations there may be changes
from time to time, who knows what the future

holds? But I am telling you even if there are.

rumours out there that persons have been forced

‘to resign or no longer hold their positions that's

not correct.”

Attempts to secure a comment from WSC gen-
eral manager Godfrey Sherman were unsuccess-
ful up to press time.

Brazil rescuers
Say missing
priest's chances
of survival fading

@ SAO PAULO, Brazil

HOPES for finding a priest
who disappeared after soaring
into the air with hundreds of
colorful balloons are growing
slimmer, rescue officials said
Wednesday, according to Asso-
ciated Press.

Roman Catholic Rev. Adelir
Antonio de Carli has been miss-
ing since Sunday, when he lifted
off from the port city of
Paranagua wearing a helmet,
an aluminum thermal flight suit,
waterproof coveralls and a
parachute. He was seeking to
break a record for the longest
time in-flight with helium-filled
party balloons.

Rescuers in boats, planes and
helicopters continued to search
off Brazil’s southern coast, near
where a cluster of yellow,
orange, pink and white balloons
was found floating in the
Atlantic close to where de Car-
li’s was when he last made con-
tact.

“It is getting harder to hold
on to our optimism,” said John-
ny Coelho, commander of the
Penha Fire Department, which
is searching for the priest. “The
possibilities of finding him alive
are beginning to get smaller and
smaller as each day passes.”

Coelho said some 30 fire
department rescue workers
were also scouring the “thick,
almost impenetrable forests”
covering several 1,300-foot
(400-meter) mountains along
the coast.

But de Carli’s parishioners
remained optimistic.

“We are more confident than
ever they will find him alive,”
Sao Cristovao’parish treasurer
Denise Gallas said. “Hope is
always the last thing to die.”

A paragliding instructor who
taught de Carli three years ago
called the priest’s disappear-
ance a “tragedy foretold.”

Marcio Andre Lichtnow
described the 41-year-old priest
as a “headstrong, anxious indi-
vidual who was always in a rush
to get things done.”

“After two or three months,
I asked him to abandon the
course because of these per-
sonality traits, which are not the
ideal profile for a paraglider,”

*Lidhtnow said by telephone.
“So what happened comes as
no pig surprise.”

ichtnow also said de Carli
phoned him days before liftoff.

“T told him that the winds
would carry him all the way to
South Africa,” Lichtnow said.
“He said he had studied every-
thing very carefully and that he
would go ahead. I honestly
thought he was joking.”

‘ De Carli hoped to break a
19-hour flight record and raise
money for a “spiritual” rest-
stop for truckers in Paranagua.

Searchers reached the float-
ing balloons late Tuesday but
there was no sign of the priest,
the Air Force said on its Web
site.



SOME 2,500 participants
flocked to the Montagu Beach
last weekend to join in Atlantic
Medical’s 10th annual ‘Fun
Walk’.

The Bahamas Diabetic
Association and the Bahamas
Cancer Society once again
took part this year, in what was
the biggest ‘Fun Walk’ ever.

Last year more than $36,000
was donated to the two organ-
isations from the event, and
they will again be the benefi-
ciaries of the proceeds.

This year’s overall winner
was Raymond “Breaker”
Rudol. Special mention went
to the Misiewicz family, all of
whom have participated in the
Atlantic Medical Fun Walk for
the past nine years.

Both Misiewicz children
placed in the under 15 catego-
ry, with the family’s son win-
ning and the daughter placing
fifth.

The oldest male and female
walkers, Robert Elliot and
Rosalind Thompson, both 78,
received complimentary Com-
monwealth Drugs gift baskets.

The group award winners in
the 500 plus participants cate-
gory were the staff of the
Bahamas Telecommunications
Company. Group award win-
ners in the less than 500 par-
ticipants category were the
employees of the Common-
wealth Bank. The Central
Bank of the Bahamas placed
second, with the National
Insurance Board coming in at
third place.

The main objective of the
Walk, said Darren Bastian,
senior marketing executive at
Atlantic‘Medical, is “to encour-
age and to create an increased
awareness of living healthy.”

“In our business we often
see a number of lifestyle dis-
eases that can sometimes be
avoided or controlled through
proper diet and exercise. It is
our hope that this event
encouraged the public at large
to ‘walk-the walk’ when it

\comes to living healthy consis-.

RATION cards. Genetical-

These possible solutions to
the first global food crisis since
World War II — which the
World Food Program says

- already threatens ,20 million of

the poorest children — are
complex and controversial.
And they may not even solve
the problem as demand con-
tinues to soar, according to the
Associated Press.

A “silent tsunami” of hunger
is sweeping the world’s most
desperate nations, said Josette
Sheeran, the WFP’s executive
director, speaking Tuesday at a
London summit on the crisis.

The skyrocketing cost of
food staples, stoked by rising
fuel prices, unpredictable
weather and demand from
India and China, has already
sparked sometimes violent
protests across the Caribbean,
Africa and Asia.

The price of rice has more

than doubled in the last five::

weeks, she said. The World
Bank estimates food prices

EXECUTIVE DIRECTOR of the United Nations World Food Program, Josette Sheeran, third from left, attends a meeting of food producers, retailers and consumers to deal
with the growing world food crisis, at 10 Downing Street in London, Tuesday, April 22, 2008. Food aid for some 20 million of the world’s poorest children will have to be
cut even if rich nations provide emergency funds to relieve pressure from the rapidly spiraling cost of rice, wheat and other staples, Sheeran said Tuesday.

World Food Programme
warns of the coming

hunger crisis

“What we are seeing now is
affecting more people on every
continent,” Sheeran told a
news.conference.

Hosting talks with Sheeran,
lawmakers and experts, British
Prime Gordon Brown said the
spiraling prices threaten to
plunge millions back into
poverty and reverse progress
on alleviating misery in the
developing world.

“Tackling hunger is a moral
challenge to each of us and it is
also a threat to the political and
economic stability of nations,”
Brown said.

Malaysia’s embattled prime
minister is already under pres-
sure over the price increases

Nepal expels
climber with
Free Tibet’ banner
from Everest

@ KATMANDU, Nepal

AN AMERICAN moun-
tain climber with a “Free
Tibet” banner was forced to
turn back from Mount Ever-
est, which Chinese climbers
carrying the Olympic torch
plan to summit next month,
officials said Wednesday,
according to Associated
Press.

The climber was caught
with the banner in his bags
at Everest’s base camp, said
officials at the Tourism Min-
istry in Nepal’s capital, Kat-
mandu. The officials spoke
on condition of anonymity
because they are not autho-
rized to speak to reporters.

Katmandu-based
Himalayan Guides Treks
and Expeditions, which got
the permit for the climber,
identified him as William
Brant Holland but was not
able to give details on his
age or hometown.

The government has
issued a notice to the agency
seeking clarification on the
incident, said Umid Bhan-
dari, an employee with the
expedition company.

It was not clear what the
government would do about
Holland’s case once he
returned to Katmandu. Offi-
cials said he would proba-
bly be banned from moun-
taineering in Nepal for the
next few years.

Holland is the first moun-
taineer to be stopped by sol-
diers and policemen sta-
tioned on the Nepalese side
of the world’s highest moun-
tain to prevent anti-China
protests during the planned
torch run to the summit.

The climb will take place
on the Chinese side of the
mountain. But the Nepalese
government, complying with
pressure from the Chinese
government, has posted sol-
diers on the southern side
and banned climbing near
the summit between May 1-
10 as a precaution.

Police and soldiers have
been ordered to stop any
protest on the mountain
using whatever means nec-
essary, including use of
weapons, ‘although the use
of deadly force is authorized
only as a last resort.

The torch relay — the
longest in Olympic history
— was meant to highlight
China’s rising economic and
political power. But activists
have seized on it as a plat-
form to protest China’s
human rights record. It has
drawn particular ire from
those denouncing China’s
rule in Tibet following a a
crackdown on demonstra-
tions in the Himalayan
region in March.

There are already dozens _

of mountaineers on Everest
for the popular spring
climbing season. Climbers
spend weeks acclimatizing
and making practice
runs up the slopes before
attempting the 29,035-foot
summit.

Darfur conflict

G ‘ . 9
getting worse’ |

@ By EDITH M. LEDERER
United Nations

THE CONFLICT in Darfur
is getting worse, with full
deployment of a new peace-
keeping force delayed until
2009 and no prospect of a polit-
ical settlement for a war that
has killed perhaps 300,000 peo-
ple in five years, U.N. officials
said Tuesday, according to the
Associated Press.

In grim reports to the Secu-
rity Council, the United
Nations aid chief and the rep-
resentative of the peacekeep-

‘ ing mission said suffering in the

Sudanese region is deteriorat-
ing. Tens of thousands more
have been uprooted from their
homes and food rations to the
needy are about to be cut in
half, they said.

“We continue to see the goal
posts receding, to the point
where peace in Darfur seems
further away today than ever,”
said John Holmes, undersecre-
tary-general for humanitarian
affairs.

The conflict began in early
2003 when ethnic African
rebels took up arms against
Sudan’s Arab-dominated cen-
tral government, accusing it of
discrimination. Many of the
worst atrocities in the war have
been blamed on the janjaweed
militia of Arab nomads allied
with the government.

A joint U.N.-African Union
peacekeeping force took over
duties in Darfur in January
from a beleaguered 7,000-man
AU mission. But only about
9,000 soldiers and police offi-
cers of the authorized 26,000
have deployed.

“We are late and we are try-
ing to speed up the deployment
of this mission, and we facing
many obstacles,” said the U.N.-
AU force’s envoy, Rodolphe

UN report says that

some 300,000 dead
in five-year conflict

Adada. “But eventually, with
the help of some donors, we
could be in a position to achieve
maybe 80 percent of the force
by the end of this year.”

The mission faces major
problems in putting troops into
a very hostile environment,
Adada said. It still lacks five
critical capabilities to become
operational — attack heli-
copters, surveillance aircraft,
transport helicopters, military
engineers and logistical support.

Holmes said further progress

in deploying the joint peace-

keeping force, known as
UNAMID, would help protect
civilians and possibly humani-
tarian convoys.

“But only an end to all vio-
lence and. concrete steps
towards a political settlement
will make the fundamental dif-
ference needed, as the rebei
movements themselves above
all need to recognize,” Holmes
said. “Otherwise the reality is
that the people of Darfur face a
continued steady deterioration
of their conditions of life and
their chances of lasting recov-
ery.”

The U.N. and AU have tried
for months to open new peace
talks between Sudan and rebel
groups following the failure of a
2005 agreement to stem vio-
lence. But most rebel chiefs are
boycotting the negotiations, and

-security in Darfur has further

deteriorated in recent months.
Adada ‘told the council that
“unfortunately, it is commonly




understood today in Darfur that

_ peace is not at all attractive —

neither economically nor polit-
ically.”

Darfur’s main rebel chief said
Tuesday he told Security Coun-
cil representatives last month
that no peace talks can be held
until security is restored.

“Wrong negotiations will
only complicate the matter and
prolong the suffering of the
people of Darfur,” Abdulwahid.

Elnur, head of the Sudan Lib-

eration Movement, told The
Associated Press during.an
interview in Paris, where he
lives in exile.

-When former U.N. humani-
tarian chief Jan Egeland
brought the Darfur conflict to
the Security Council’s attention
in April 2004, he said approxi-

mately 750,000 people were in -

danger.

Today, Holmes told the
council, “of Darfur’s estimated
6 million people, some 4.27 mil-
lion have now been seriously
affected by the conflict,” includ-
ing deaths and injuries, uproot-
ing from homes, illness and
hunger. rc

He said 2.45 million people
who fled their homes are shel-
tering eisewhere in Sudan and
260,000 more took refuge in
neighboring countries. Some
100,000 civilians have been
forced to flee just this year,
Holmes said. Some 60,000 of
them were displaced in West

Darfur, which has seen an,
. upsurge in violence.





















HUNDREDS of protesters raise their painted hands as they gather out-
side Sudanese Embassy in London for a rally calling for the end of cri-
sis in Darfur and to mark the 5th anniversary of the start of the crisis in
Darfur, Sunday, April 13; 2008.

France tries to smooth things over

m@ By STEVEN ERLANGER
PARIS

China stepped into an inter-
nal French political spat on
Tuesday, fiercely condemning
a decision by Paris’ Socialist
city council to make the Dalai
Lama an honorary citizen of
Paris, according to the New
York Times News Service.

“China expresses its strong
dissatisfaction and resolute
opposition” to the honor, said
the Foreign Ministry spokes-
woman, Jiang Yu. “This act
of crude interference in Chi-
na’s domestic affairs has seri-
ously damaged the Sino-
French relationship, and in

particular the existing friendly
ties between Paris and Bei-
jing.”

Not only that, Jiang said,
but also, “to make the Dalai
an ‘honorary citizen of Paris’
now can only be considered
as another grave provocation
of 1.3 billion Chinese people,
including the people of Tibet,
and it will further encourage
the arrogance of the Dalai and
Tibet independence ele-
ments.”

The attention Beijing has
now provided will no doubt
please the newly re-elected
mayor of Paris, Bertrand
Delanoe, who is running hard
to become leader of the

protest outside a Carrefour supermaket in Hefei, central China’s Anhui province, Saturday, April 19, 2008.
China denounced a decision by the Paris city council to bestow honorary citizenship on the Dalai Lama, say-
ing Tuesday the move was “another insult” that would harm diplomatic relations. Anti-French sentiment has
been growing in China since the Beijing Olympics torch relay was disrupted by protests during a chaotic leg

in Paris on April 7.

Socialist Party, which is in dis-
array after losing the presi-
dency a year ago to Nicolas
Sarkozy and the right.

The gesture allowed Dela-
noe to distinguish himself
from Sarkozy, who has waf-
fled about whether he will
attend the opening ceremony
of the Olympic Games on
Aug. 8 or boycott it in protest.

Sarkozy is under pressure
from French businessmen who
are deeply involved in the Chi-
nese economy. The large
supermarket chain Carrefour
has 112 stores and 2 million
customers in China and has
already been a target for large
Chinese protests, both insti-
gated and not, of the some-
times violent scenes that met
the Olympic. torch in the
streets of Paris on April 7.

LVMH Moet Hennessy-Louis
Vuitton, whose products are
popular with moneyed Chi-
nese, told the newspaper Le
Figaro that he understood
“why the Chinese population
could be affected by the
attacks against its country.”

There have been several
days of anti-France protests
aimed at French companies,
and an Internet-led boycott of
French goods. The Chinese
have disseminated photos of
a Chinese woman athlete in a
wheelchair, carrying the torch,
accosted by a Parisian pro-
tester in a Tibetan hat.

Sarkozy, who led a large
delegation of French busi-
nessmen to China in Novem-
ber, has said that his atten-
dance at the opening ceremo-
ny will depend on whether
China reopens dialogue with
the Dalai Lama, while For-
eign Minister Bernard Kouch-
ner, a human-rights activist in
his youth, has said that “for-
eign policy cannot be reduced
to human rights.”

But in another effort to
dampen Chinese reaction,
Sarkozy also wrote a letter of
apology to the wheelchair-
bound athlete, Jin Jing, offer-
ing sympathy and saying that
he condemned this “painful
moment” in the “strongest
possible terms.” The note was
hand-delivered in Shanghai by
the president of the French
Senate, Christian Poncelet. Jin
was reportedly unimpressed,

’ and Sarkozy appeared to be

kowtowing more to French
commercial interests than to
Beijing. But he was not in the
front lines defending the Dalai
Lama — unlike Mr. Delanoe.

On Sunday, the newly
accredited Chinese ambas-
sador to France, Kong Quan,
tried in vain to dissuade the
City Council, saying that the
vote could “damage the trust,
friendship and cooperative
relations” between the coun-
tries and “worsen the situa-
tion in Tibet.”

istry spokeswoman, Pascale

Andreani, was quick to issue
her own statement on Tues-
day, saying that Paris acted on
its own and implying that
cities do not have foreign poli-
cies. “It is not our place to
interfere with a decision taken
by the city of Paris,” she said.
“Local authorities are fully
independent, and therefore
what towns and municipalities
do is their own responsibili-
ty.”
Sarkozy is sending two oth-
er emissaries to Beijing to
reassure the Chinese — his
diplomatic adviser, Jean-
David Levitte, the former
ambassador to Washington
and the United Nations, and
Jean-Pierre Raffarin, a former
prime minister. The Chinese
traditionally see such emis-
saries as a form of tribute.

In their'own demonstra-
tions, the ‘Chinese called
Napoleon “a pervert” and
Joan of Arc a “prostitute,” but
no apologies have so far been
forthcoming.

China may have another
motive, which is to send a
strong message more broad-
ly. France takes over the six-
month rotating presidency of
the European Union on July 1
and will be in charge of diplo-
matic relations between the
27-country bloc and China
during the Olympics.

“Increasing the pressure on
France is a way for China to
warn Paris against any temp-
tation of taking a bold stance
during the French presiden-
cy,” said Valerie Niquet, direc-
tor of the Asia Institute at the
French Institute of Interna-
tional Relations.

Delanoe defended the vote.
“If Paris doesn’t express its
attachment to values, it’s too
bad,” he said. “Between a
good conscience and cynicism
there’s defending one’s con-
victions.”

hai, China.

In brief

Diplomats: US
compromises
on nuclear
technology
experts

H By GEORGE JAHN
VIENNA, Austria

FACING international oppo-
sition, US negotiators at a
nuclear meeting have dropped
their insistence on a ban of ura-
nium enrichment technology to
non-nuclear states, diplomats
said Tuesday, according to Asso-
ciated Press.

The compromise, which
moves America closer to the
positions of other nations sell-
ing nuclear technology and
material, is important because it
could give ammunition to Iran,
which is under U.N. sanctions
for. defying a Security Council
demand that it give up its enrich-
ment program.

It also could complicate efforts
to put life into a U.S.-Indian deal
that would allow transfers of sen-
sitive nuclear technology to New
Delhi, even though it remains
outside of the Nuclear Nonpro-
liferation Treaty.

The diplomats, who demand-
ed anonymity because their
information was confidential,
said the new U.S. position was
discussed at a Vienna meeting
of the 45-nation Nuclear Supphi-
ers Group, whose gatherings are
meant to set and monitor com-
mon policies on exports of sen-
sitive atomic hardware and
knowledge.

No decision was reached at
the meeting, which ended Tues-
day, said one of the diplomats,
adding that any agreement must
be made by consensus and that
the issue was deferred to the
group’s next full session in Berlin
starting May 19.

While the U.S. had moved
closer to positions favored by
most of the other NSG nations,
the diplomat suggested there
was still a ways to go if that con-
sensus was to be achieved. Still,
he said, Washington appeared
to be prepared for further com-
promise.

“The U.S. will go back to
Washington with some amend-
ments, with some comments we
put forward,” he said. “The aim
is to have a broad discussion in
Berlin.”

The U.S. decision to drop its
insistence on a ban was forced
primarily by Canada, which has
large reserves of uranium and
reserves the right to start up
‘enrichment programs for lucra-
tive export sales, the diplomats
said.

Any ban, as originally
demanded by the U.S., would
thus present an obstacle to
Canadian ambitions to possess
its own enrichment capabilities.

The Americans, however,
apparently remained firm in
their opposition to any transfers
of technology that is replicable
and would allow receiving states
to copy it and create their own
program. A Canadian govern-
ment statement issued while the
meeting was still ongoing indi-
cated that that was the case.

“While we welcome the U.S.
proposal on nuclear enrichment
and reprocessing, the proposal
does not address all of Canada’s
concerns as a nuclear nonprolif-
eration treaty party with impec-
cable nonproliferation creden-
tials and a significant nuclear
industry,” said Foreign Affairs
spokesman Andre Lemay. “We
will continue to work, with all
parties in a nuclear supplies
group to find an acceptable solu-
tion.”

A participant in the meeting
said the United States favored
the “black box approach” that
gives other nations the tech-
nologies without knowing how
they work.

Canada wants the right to
develop its own enrichment
technology, and a ban on exports
of replicable material — or the
“black box approach” — would
hurt it in this regard.

Other regional powers, such
as Brazil, Argentina and South
Africa, also have indicated a pos-
sible interest in selling enriched
uranium fuel.

With nuclear power under-
going a rebirth, additional coun-
tries might seek to join the club,
a development that could lead
to dozens developing enrichment
programs and strengthen Iran’s
claim that it has the right as an
NPT signatory to its own enrich-
ment activities.

The U.S. shift also could hurt
the chances that India can cut a
deal with the suppliers group
giving it greater access to nuclear
technology even though it
remains outside the NPT.

It is true that South would have

Tax policy haunts
Brown as vote on
budget approaches

Political crisis threatens

lm By ALAN COWELL
LONDON

At the time, it seemed like a
political masterstroke, the kind
of move that inspired Tony
Blair to label his successor, Gor-
don Brown, a “great clunking
fist” in the bruising jousts of the
British Parliament, reports the
New York Times News Service.

But now Brown’s surprise
announcement in March 2007
that he was lowering an income
tax rate has struck back venge-
fully, prompting a political crisis
that threatens to unravel the
Labour Party less than two
weeks before a set of critical
local elections. Some analysts

are even questioning Brown’s |

political future.‘
Initially his announcement
seemed to undercut the opposi-
tion Conservatives, appropriat-
ing their historic reputation for
lower taxes. Labor lawmakers
applauded deliriously. But the
problem lay in the detail of
Brown’s last budget as chancel-
lor of the Exchequer before he
took over from Blair last June.
To finance a 2-percentage-

point cut in one rate of income ©

’ tax, from 22 to 20 percent, the
chancellor abolished a lower
rate of 10 percent that benefited
particularly low-paid young
workers without children. —
part of Labor’s most cherished
blue-collar constituency.

Now, as a new tax year
begins, Labor politicians facing
local elections on May 1 have
discovered that over 5 million
Britons may be affected by the
maneuvers, losing hundreds of
dollars of income a year on
already low salaries because
they can no longer claim their

_ old tax rate.

“ Those same disgruntled tax-
payers have been grumbling to
their legislators. The lawmak-
ers have been grumbling with

e

i a
Gordon Brown



increasing volume to Brown.
And, on Tuesday, dissident law-
makers appeared to have gath-
ered sufficient support to vote

‘down the government’s bud-

getary plans in a parliamentary
ballot next week. Defeat would
deeply embarrass Brown, whose
political credentials are rooted
in his decade-long stewardship
of the economy and his oft-
voiced claim to have lifted
Britain’s neediest people out of
poverty.

“We will not allow people to
get into poverty,” he told a
meeting of Labor legislators
Monday night.

“We should be proud that the
poorest people are the biggest
beneficiaries,” Brown went on,
telling legislators: “I understand
how difficult it is out there. I
understand that people are
fighting the elections and ques-
tions are being asked.”

But, he said, according to

Suicide bombings, attacks in Afghanistan kill 13, wound 24



British news reports of the
closed meeting Monday, “We
cannot have the budget defeat-
ed.”

“There is a responsibility on
all of us to unite,” he said.

Brown’s appeal to his party
went some way toward defus-
ing the revolt but did not guar-
antee that Labor would survive
next Monday’s ballot in Parlia-
ment on the budget, which par-
ty officials are comparing to a
confidence vote.

A defeat for Brown in Par-
liament, said Peter Riddell, a
columnist in The Times of Lon-
don, would “not only knock
away a central plank” of the
government’s spending plans,
but also “could trigger a col-
lapse of confidence leading to
his replacement as Prime Min-
ister.”

Riddell concluded that, what-

. ever the outcome, “many peo-

ple — core Labor voters,
activists and members of Par-
liament — are unhappy and dis-
illusioned with Mr. Brown.”
One dissident Labor legisla-
tor, George Pendle, said, “The

‘fact is that if the budget goes

down, if this key clause goes
down, then I don’t think the
government can survive.”
Eailier this month, Brown
visited with President Bush and
with the Democratic and
Republican presidential con-
tenders in Washington. The
journey seemed to stem a slide
in Labor’s fortunes in opinion
surveys, but the surveys show
that the party is still lagging
behind the Conservatives.

Hi KANDAHAR, Afghanistan

A SPATE of suicide bombings and other
attacks on security forces in southern Afghanistan
Wednesday left 13 people dead and 24 others

wounded, officials said, according to Associated |

Press.

In Kandahar province, a suicide bomber blew
himself up next to a vehicle carrying intelligence
agents in the border town of Spin Boldak, killing
three civilians, Kandahar Gov. Assadullah Khalid
said. -

Two children and three intelligence agents were
among the 14 hurt, Khalid said.

Taliban spokesman Qari Yousef Ahmadi said
the insurgent group was behind the attack and
identified the bomber as a man named Gul
Mohammad.

A 16-year-old boy who was wounded in the

explosion said police shot at the bomber before he
detonated explosives.

“Police opened fire at the man after he ran
toward a group of civilians. He then threw his
shawl and then there was a big explosion,” said
Rehmat Ullah.

In neighboring Helmand province, a suicide
bomber struck a police convoy, killing two officers
and wounding three, said district police chief
Khairudin Shuhja. Shuhja was in the convoy but
was not injured in the attack.

As the bomber approached the car, guards
opened fire, wounding the attacker, who then
blew himself up, Shuhja said.

Southern Afghanistan is the center of the Tal-
iban-led insurgency. Militants regularly use suicide
attacks in their fight against Afghan and foreign
troops in the country, but most victims are civil-

nvestors behind a $2.2 billion

mega-resort project proposed

for eastern Grand Bahama are

looking at alternative coun-

tries for the development, The
Tribune has been told, due to the Gov-
ernment’s reluctance to either sell or
lease Crown Land to it.

The Bahamas Golden Beach Devel-
opment Company project, which is
looking to develop a four-hotel, four
casino complex on Crown Land east of
Pelican Point, includes major interna-
tional brand names and casino opera-
tors such as Planet Hollywood and
Foxwoods Development Company,
Tribune Business can reveal.

Yet sources familiar with the situa-

$40m tax windfall Oil prices threaten firm with

tion said the developers aiid their

brand partners were becoming increas- ,

ingly frustrated at their inability to
obtain a definite answer from the Gov-

_ ernment on whether it wanted the pro-

ject or not.
In the continued absence of an
‘approval in principle’, Tribune Busi-
ness was told, Bahamas Golden.Beach
Development Company and its brand
partners were now looking at alterna-
tive locations where they would be able
to obtain government approval much
faster, including one spot in the Turks
& Caicos Islands.

‘The project was inherited by the
Ingraham administration from the for-
mer Christie ’government, and The Tri-
bune was told that the developers had
been waiting for an answer on an

‘approval in principle’ since Noyem-
ber 2006.

“They haven’t given a preliminary -

approval that they like the project,”
one source told The Tribune. “Those
guys are now looking at other coun-
tries.”

The main sticking point, The Tri-
bune has been told, is that the project
would require between 1100-1200 acres

of Crown Land to bring it to fruition.

The developers have offered to pur-
chase the land at market prices, sources
said, or otherwise lease it on commer-
cial terms or lease with an option to
buy later.

However, the Government is
thought likely to be concerned that if
accedes to the developers’ request, it
would be exposed politically to charges
that it was ‘selling too much Bahamian
land to foreigners. There is also a
strong body of opinion that Crown and
other government-owned land should
be used to benefit Bahamians first.

The Tribune, though, has been told
that the developers can find no plots of
private land for their project that are
suitable in either size, scope or location.
The Crown is said to own at least 20-
30,000 acres in eastern Grand Bahama

- that nothing has been done with for

years, with the Bahamas Golden Beach
Development site “in the middle of
nowhere”.

from BORCO deal

m By NEIL HARTNELL
Tribune Business Editor

THE Government will earn
$40 million in Stamp Duty from
the $900 million purchase of the
Bahamas Oil Refining Interna-
tional Company (BORCO), a
government minister told the
House of Assembly yesterday.

Carl Bethel, minister of edu-
cation, youth and sports, said
BORCO’s acquisition by First

Reserve Corporation, the
world’s largest private equity
player in the global oil, gas and
energy industries, would send

$40 million to the Treasury,
with the deal scheduled to close
later this month. ;

Although Zhivargo Laing,
minister of state for finance
could not be contacted for com-
ment yesterday afternoon, it
appears likely that the Stamp
Duty payment in relation to the
BORCO deal could fill a sig-
nificant chunk of the hole in
revenue estimates caused by
Stamp Duty monies being
behind projections. -

‘wrecked financial year’

@ By NEIL HARTNELL
Tribune Business Editor

BAHAMAS Ferries, the
inter-island marine transporta-
tion provider, yesterday said it
would have “a wrecked finan-
cial year” if global oil prices
continued to increase at current
rates, warning that the imposi-
tion of a fuel surcharge on pas-
senger tickets was “imminent”.

Khaalis Rolle, Bahamas Fer-
ries’ chief marketing officer,
said that with per barrel oil
prices having increased almost
five-fold since the company
went into business in 1999, ever-
soaring fuel costs were “mak-

ing the case for us getiing out of -
the traditional meespeee fer-
ry business”.

Only one of the company’s .



three vessels, the Bo Hengy,
falls into the traditional catego-
ry of a high-speed, and that is
due to be replaced by Bahamas
Ferries’ latest new-build, which
is on track for September/Octo-

With convenient locations in:

Inagua: Matthew Town San Salvador: Cockburn Town
Cat Island: Knowles, and now in Florida: Coral Gables

ber 2008 delivery to the com-
pany.

Mr Rolle yesterday told Tri-
bune Business that while the Bo

Hengy comprised just one-third |.
of the firm’s fleet, it accounted’

for more than 60 per cent of
Bahamas Ferries’ fuel costs.
Hence the need to switch to a
vessel with slower-speed

’ engines that consumes less fuel.

“One of the things we have
been trying to avoid doing is

adding an unbearable fuel sur- ©

charge,” Mr Rolle said. “It’s at
the point where now we see no
option, particularly on the high-
speed routes.

“We're paying $5a gallon for
diesel, and when we started in

Their termination letter of
March 6 said they thought
the deal was taking too long

-and doubted that “land will

planned”. I bet that was a red
herring. The real issue was
simmering ever since the
Harrah’s privatisation closed
just five weeks earlier on Jan-

their banks were having a

leveraged deal; and that the

not too strong. Those hard-

Whither Baha Mar? After

nosed guys started to look for
any risky deal they could
unload in the shaky debt
environment, and Baha Mar
was the first, soon followed
by a venture in Slovenia.
Loveman, who had spent
years negotiating Baha Mar,
probably wanted to continue,
but now he was only one of
nine directors, and was told
to wield the axe.

. RC: So did Harrah’s have a
legal right to pull the plug?
.Joe: Baha Mar sure doesn’t
think so. That’s why they
filed a51-page complaint in
New York Supreme Court.
Maybe in the hundreds of
pages of joint venture agree-
ments a smart lawyer can find
some fine print that OKs
Harrah’s move. But to a nor-
mal businessman, it’s pretty :
dicey. Look at the timing: on
January 31, Harrah’s signs
the Supplemental Heads of
Agreement with Baha Mar
and the Government, and
Loveman e-mails Sarkis:
“Well done. We look forward
to working with you to bring
Baha Mar to reality.” Both

this abrupt decision at Har-
rah’s head office in Vegas?
Cold feet at the last minute,
knowing they have to put up
some of the $212 million
agreed equity at the closing?

RC: This means Baha Mar
wins its case? What are they
asking for?

Joe: First, specific perfor-
mance. That is, an order for
Harrah’s to take up its agreed
43 per cent stake. Unlikely
they'll get that, so they’re
also claiming damages, close
to $300 million, to cover what
they’ve already spent. I didn’t
say they would win. To me,
it’s a pretty clear case of bad-

: faith dealing by Harrah’s, but

whether bad faith counts in a
New York court, you’ll have

‘ to ask the lawyers. Or better

still, the judge. And I’m sure
Harrah’s will drag up every
reason to fight back.

RC: But let’s assume Baha
Mar wins. Can they all be
happy campers then?

Joe: Far from it, my friend.
So they collect a big pile of
cash, but a lot more than

ed, expensive staff are
already being sacked.
Bahamian contractors are
bitter. What happens to all
the road-moving schemes,
the Jack Nicklaus golf
course? Baha Mar never dug
a shovel of dirton Cable —
Beach, so all Bahamians saw
was the forced closing of pop-
ular Café Johnny Canoe —
not the smartest PR move.
The A-word is never men-

RC: Pretty tough on Sarkis
, since the original November
2005 website said Baha Mar
was “Created by Sarkis
Izmirlian”, then aged 33.

Joe: Yeah, and by all
accounts he’s a real good guy,
got a top Georgetown degree
in finance, energetic, ambi-
tious, lovely wife. A certified
gentleman now that he’s
elected a Governor of Lyford
Cay Club. And an amazing
family: grandfather left home
without a penny and made a
fortune shlepping camel
trains across the Sudan, dad,
they say, cornered the
African peanut market. All

that takes guts and brains!
And they support a charita-
ble foundation back in strug-
gling Armenia.

pathy vote.

Joe: Sure, but sympathy
doesn’t cut any ice in the

lost the deal. Look at Sol

ew bite for money
transmission firms

m@ By CARA BRENNEN-
BETHEL
Tribune Business
Reporter

MONEY Transmission service
providers will now be supervised
by a single regulator, and must
comply with new requirements
under the amended provision of
the Banks and Trust Companies
(Regulations) Act.

Rochelle Deleveaux, legal
counsel and secretary to the Cen-
tral Bank of the Bahamas Board,
gave an update on the regula-
tion of non-bank money trans-
mission at a Bahamas Associa-
tion of Compliance Officers

(BACO) and Central Bank joint
half-day forum.

Ms Deleveaux explained that
the Government had decided
that all money transmission oper-
ators (such as Western Union,
MoneyGram and Omni Finan-
cial Services, which send and
receive money) should be placed
under a single regulator.

This came on the heels of rec-
ommendations by the Financial
Action Task Force (FATF) that
money transfer providers should
be licensed, registered and:sub-
ject to all the FATF recommen-
dations that apply to banks and
non-bank financial institutions.

Under the Banks and Trust

‘Companies Act, Ms Deleveaux
said providers needed to be
licensed and registered with the
Central Bank of the Bahamas at
a fee of $5,000.

Stated

She further stated that under
the Act, money transmission
providers, unless otherwise stat-
ed, have to undergo on-site
examinations and sanctions.
They are not, however, subjected
to the same requirements as oth-
er institutions under the Act,
such as licensing requirements,
approval to establish business
outside the Bahamas or the

requirement to publish annual
audited statements.
Additionally, money trans-
mission providers do not have to
be subjected to the requirements
of cross-border inspections, rules

for inspections or dormant

accounts.

Only companies in existence
and operating since 1992, or
groups of individuals of five or
more persons may be licensed.
Existing money transmission
providers have three months
after the regulations come into
force to apply to the Central
Bank for a license. They will
also be required to have a
$50,000 capital requirement, ade-

quate medical insurance, and
submit annual audited state-
ments to the inspector within the
months of the end of the finan-
cial year, unless the Governor of
the Bank gives an extension. The
money transmission provider
must be registered with the Cen-
tral Bank and pay an annual fee

-of $300.

Further, Ms Deleveaux said
such companies must comply
with Exchange Control Regula-
tions, and maintain a head
office and a registered office in
the Bahamas.

Ms Deleveaux said that strict
record keeping will be required
and kept for five years, and must

which list not only resort devel-

also a horse pasture, multi-media
production facility, residences, a
sports history museum, plastic

However, given the current
world economic climate, it
remains to be seen whether all
these projects will actually come
to fruition or be completed
entirely as planned. For exam-
ple, Kerzner International has

been delayed by the global eco-
nomic climate and ownership dis-
pute at the Grand Bahama Port

[ET aS
Oil prices threaten firm

FROM page 1B

1999 we were paying $0.79 a
gallon, just under a dollar. Our
costs have increased signifi-
cantly.”

Attempting to put the issue
into perspective, Mr Rolle said
that when the company was
formed, oil cost $25 per barrel,
compared to the $118 per barrel
price it is now trading at on
international markets.

The Bo Hengy operates
arguably Bahamas Ferries’ most
popular route, namely the Nas-
sau-Spanish Wells-Harbour
Island-Governor’s Harbour

route.

Mr Rolle added: “To contin-
ue to operate that at current
trends, we would have to charge
more than $200 per ticket [for a
round-trip on the Eleuthera
route]. Right now, it’s at $115.

“It’s still significantly lower
than the airlines, but it’s becom-
ing unbearable, not only for us
but the consumer as well.

“We’re beyond the point
where we have to implement a
fuel surcharge for the consumer.
We’ve been discussing it inter-
nally, and will be looking to pull
the trigger very shortly in that
matter.”

Mr Rolle confirmed that the
imposition of a fuel surcharge
on Bahamas Ferries’ passenger
tickets was “imminent. It’s just
how much and when.

“We understand we’re not
going to recover all that we’re
losing, but we need to remain
operational. It’s going to be con-
sistent with the need to stay
operational.

“For us it’s the last option.
We'll try to absorb the increase
[in fuel prices] within reason,
but it’s becoming unbearable.
Before the year is out, we may
be paying $6 or $7 per gallon
for fuel, even $8 per gallon.

“We haven’t increased our
prices to match the fuel
increase. Our margins are
squeezed significantly, and we
are finding it difficult to keep

pace.”

The increase in global oil
prices, and by extension gaso-
line prices, will heavily impact
an economy such as the
Bahamas that is heavily reliant
on inter-island transportation
to drive commerce.

Apart from Bahamas Ferries,
mail boat operators, taxi drivers
and jitney drivers are all agitat-
ing for government approval to
increase their fares and rates,
so that they can cover the rising
fuel costs and still maintain mar-
gins and profits.

Airline companies, too, are -
looking to at least pass some of
the fuel price increases on to
consumers through adding fuel
surcharges to ticket prices.

Mr Rolle told Tribune Busi-
ness that Bahamas Ferries’ sit-
uation was not isolated in a
global context, with many high
speed ferry operators forced by
fuel costs to either moor their
boats or go out of business,
unable to find a buyer for the
vessels.

He added that Bahamas Fer-
ries would be “comfortable”
with per barrel of oil prices
between $68-$75, but current
prices were between 42.4 per
cent to 36.5 per cent higher.

“Where it is now, it definitely
puts us out there,” Mr Rolle
added. “If it continues the way
it is, our financial year will be
threatened.” He further
described current trends as pro-
ducing a “wrecked financial

Describing the global oil mar-
ket as presenting “a bleak pic-
ture”, with no relief currently
in sight, Mr Rolle said the mon-
ey Bahamas Ferries was spend-
ing on fuel purchases could
have been used for capital
expenditure instead, reinvested
in upgrading the firm’s facili-
ties, docks and boats.

On a brighter note, customer
demand for Bahamas Ferries
was “still holding steady”, keep-
ing revenue streams constants
with Mr Rolle confident the
company would retain its cus-
tomer base.

“It’s just the fuel costs that
are spiralling out of control,”
Mr Rolle added. “It is the sec-
ond highest line item after
salaries, wages and benefits. It
carves out a big chunk.”

The Tribune’s phone calls seek-
ing comment.

Zhivargo Laing, minister of
state for finance, did though
confirm that the Government
had been concerned over the
Bahamas Golden Beach Devel-
opment Company’s Crown
Land needs.

“T think there were concerns
about the significant require-
ment being made for land. I
think something was communi-
cated to them about that, and
they may have sent something
back to the Prime Minister’s
Office about that,” Mr Laing
told Tribune Business yester-
day.

This newspaper has been told
that initial projections for the
Bahamas Golden Beach Devel-
opment project have pegged
peak construction employment
at about just under 3,000 jobs,
with a total annual wage bill of
over $143 million.

When full operations of the
resort complex begin, more
than 3,000 permanent jobs will
be created, The Tribune under-
stands; with the project’s first
phase involving the build-out
of 2,400 rooms.

It is understood the develop-
ers fell that a four-hotel, four-
casino complex is necessary to
build the critical mass that will
attract large numbers of high-
spending tourists to Grand
Bahama, a destination not pre-
viously known for its tourism
industry.

One hotel and casino, they .
feel, will be unable to achieve

this, with the Bahamas Golden
Beach Development project
also eyeing a marina, timeshare

‘options and potential cruise

port.

Apart from Planet Holly-
wood and Foxwoods, the other
strategic partners also include
Omni Hotels; Taubman a $2.5
billion listed US company that

' specialises in gaming retail and

manages more than 30 major
shopping malls across the US;
Baglioni Hotels; and Atlantic
Marina Holdings as the marina
operator.

The developers and their
strategic partners are all under-
stood to be willing to invest a
total of $265 million in equity
into the Bahamas Golden
Beach Development project,
with UBS’s investment banking
arm offering to provide a $500
million credit facility.

Manpower, environmental
and economic assessments are
understood to have been car-
ried out and forwarded to the
Government, which is asking
for the developers to provide a
business plan and evidence of
financing to it. Yet The Tribune
understands that without the
approval in principle, no finan-
cial institution will provide a
guarantee or financing commit-
ment.

The situation is also a poser
for Foxwoods, which only
agreed to become Harcourt
Developments’ casino and hotel
operator for the Royal Oasis on
the understanding that their
main interest - the eastern
Grand Bahama project - would
be approved. Failure to approve
this could place that involve-
ment in jeopardy.

@ By SAUL HANSELL
c.2008 New York Times
News Service

PROFIT at AT&T, the
telecommunications compa- °
ny, jumped 22 per cent in the
first quarter as its wireless
business continued to grow
fast enough to make up for
its shrinking traditional ser-

- vice.

AT&T said it was adding
wireless customers at a faster
pace than a year ago. Rev-
enue grew six per cent from a
year ago, to $30.7 billion, but
that growth masked the con-
tinuing shift among the com-
pany’s business lines. Rev-
enue from wireline voice ser-
vice fell 7.1 per cent, to $9.7
billion, while wireless rev-
enue increased 17.1 per cent,
to $10.6 billion.

The company, which is the
exclusive carrier for Apple’s
iPhone, added 1.3 million

. wireless customers, giving it a

wireless customer base of
71.4 million subscribers.

The growth was not entire-
ly welcome news to analysts.
Craig E Moffett, an analyst
with Sanford C Bernstein &
Company, wrote in a note to
clients on Tuesday that he

- was concerned that the accel-

erating loss in the wireline
business could destabilize the

’ company, despite the growth

in cellphone profit. “More
than ever, wireless is AT&T’s
engine,” Moffett wrote, “but
wireline is its anchor.
“Wireless subscriber
growth and profitability were
better than expected, but
wireline trends — both access
line losses and wireline mar-
gins — were the worst ever,”
he wrote. “AT&T’s contin-

ued access line deterioration
is. putting severe strains on
wireline profitability.”
Moffett calculated that the
rate of lines being discon-
nected was at a record high.
The economic slowdown, he
wrote, is encouraging people
to cancel their landline ser-
vice and use only cellphones.
But he said those customers
would not get their tradition-
al phone service reconnected

when the economy improved.

“Wireless substitution -
appears to have accelerated,
likely due in.part to a weak-
ening economy,” he wrote.
“But to call even this trend
‘cyclical’ would be a mis-
nomer, in.our view; it seems
improbable, at best, to
assume that the consumer
who cut the cord now might
return when the economy
strengthens.”

In a statement, AT&T’s
chief executive, Randall L
Stephenson, expressed opti-
mism about efforts to cut *
costs and shift more business

' to wireless and data service.

“Revenue growth contin-
ues to ramp, we have good
momentum across key
growth areas, major cost ini-
tiatives are on track, and our

operational results reinforce |

the confidence we have in
our outlook,” Stephenson
said.

The company reported net
income of $3.5 billion, or 57
cents a share, up 22 per cent
from the $2. 85 billion, or 45
cents a share, reported in the
year-ago quarter.

AT&T’s income was
reduced by $1.2 billion in
noncash charges related to
various mergers and $374
million in costs related to

er cent in first quarter

recent layoffs. On Friday,
AT&T said it would elimi-
nate 4,650 jobs, or 1.5 per
cent of its work force.

After deducting these non-
recurring charges, AT&T
earned 74 cents a share,
exactly what analysts had
estimated.

Company shares rose 22
cents, closing at $37.81 on the
New York Stock Exchange.

Almost all of AT&™’s
growth in profit came from
its wireless unit, which had
operating earnings of $2.9 bil-
lion, an increase of 96 pér
cent. Wireline profit fell two
per cent, to $2.8 billion.

AT&T continues to gener-
ate a significant amount of
cash, although its capital
expenses are growing even
faster. In the first quarter,
cash flow from operations
was $5 billion, up seven per

. cent. But it invested $4.3 bil-

lion in facilities and equip-

ment, up 27 per cent.
Wireless data was particu-

larly strong, the company

‘said, with revenue increasing

57 per cent to $2.3 billion.
That now represents 22 per
cent of the total wireless rev-
enue, up from 16 per cent a
year ago. The average
monthly revenue for each
subscriber, a measure
watched closely,.increased

- two per cent, to $50.18. ©

In the first quarter, AT&T
customers sent 44 billion text
messages, twice the number a
year ago. The company also
added 148,000 customers for
its U-verse television service,
giving it 379,000 total sub-
scribers. AT&T said it hoped
to have one million sub-

. scribers by the end of :he

year. \

THE TRIBUNE





Bank expands branch
network to eastern NP

FROM page 1B

time you start to completion.”

He explained that Common-
wealth Bank had been encour-
aged to further expand its New
Providence branch network by
the success of its Golden Gates
branch, which opened last year
and, by the bank’s May 16,
.2007, annual general meeting
(AGM) had attracted $5 mil-
lion in deposit accounts and
produced $15 million in loan
receivables.

“We went down south and
that proved quite successful
with Golden Gates,” Mr Don-
aldson said. “The eastern area is
not served - the Jast bank out
that way is way down on Prince
Charles Drive, close to Soldier
Road. There’s a great deal of

live out there.

“It’s a vast area, and we
intend to serve it and pick up
business there. We learned a lot
from the Golden Gates
branch.”

Mr Donaldson told Tribune
Business he did not know what
Commonwealth Bank’s invest-
ment in its latest branch, the
seventh on New Providence,
would be, as the construction
tender had not yet gone out to

* bid.

He added that given the
experience the bank had when
it opened the Golden Gates
branch, it was difficult to predict
the jobs that would be created
by the new Prince Charles Dri-
ve outlet, which will be a full-
service branch.

“We got the shock of our

we thought we were going to
do, we started off with ‘x’ peo-
ple, and in four weeks‘ we had
‘x’ plus ‘y’. The loan depart-
ment could not keep up with
the applications, and we had to
put an additional six people into
that branch,” Mr Donaldson
recalled.

The Commonwealth Bank
chairman confirmed that the
institution is seeking share-
holder approval to amend some
of its Articles of Association
that are “archaic” and “totally
out of step with modern busi-
ness practices”.

Commonwealth Bank’s
shareholders will be asked at
its upcoming May 21, 2008,
annual general meeting
(AGM) to approve changes to

the Articles of Association that
would allow the directors to
decide whether to “split, sub-
divide or consolidate” the
bank’s ordinary shares, rather
than having to first seek their
approval at an Extraordinary
General Meeting (EGM).

“When the bank was incor-
porated years ago, it never
envisaged the things happening
to the bank now,” Mr Donald-
son explained.

“Although we had the Arti-
cles reviewed before, and
made some changes shortly
before we went public in
2000”, every time Common-
wealth Bank wants to embark

on a major initiative it has to ,

seek shareholder approval.
“You can’t keep on going to

the shareholders for something
like that,” Mr Donaldson said
in reference to the bank’s
three-for-one stock split, which
shareholders had to approve
at last year’s October EGM.

“There’s no diminution of
their holdings. When you do a
split, it just means that they’ve
got more shares.”

Mr Donaldson said the 2008
first quarter had been “very
good” for Commonwealth
Bank, adding that he and his
fellow Board directors “are

-Bahamian

feeling very confident” about
its prospects for the full-year,
notwithstanding the ‘doom and
gloom’ enveloping many in the
and global
economies.

However, the Common-
wealth Bank chairman said he
and the institution would not
know until June whether the
impact from the delays to the
Baha Mar and Kerzner Inter-
national projects was going to
filter into and impact the over-
all economy.
