Stabbing death in
Farmers Cay, Exuma

lm BRENT DEAN
Tribune Staff Reporter
bdean@tribunemedia.net

A YOUNG man was stabbed
..to. death.on_the eve of Indepen-
dence Day in Farmers Cay,
Exuma during.a verbal dispute
with another man reportedly
over a woman.

Antonius Brennen was
stabbed in the chest and the
face sometime around 10.30pm
on Wednesday, according to
Acting Assistant Commissioner
Hulan Hanna.

He and another man were
reportedly engaged in the alter-
cation when the murder
occurred. Police were uncertain |
of the cause of the row yester-
day.

However, sources on Farm-
ers Cay told The Tribune yes-

terday that Mr Brennen and his
assailant were fighting after a
female, who was known to the
deceased, was accosted by a
man. The altercation was said to
have taken place at her resi-
dence.

Both men involved in the row.
— which happened in an area
residents describe as “the Vil-
lage” — are reportedly from
Nassau, but lived at Farmers
Cay while they worked at devel-
opments on surrounding cays.

Roosevelt Nixon, owner of
the Farmers Cay Yacht Club
and Marina, who was in church
on the cay when the incident
happened, told The Tribune
that the residents of the island
would like to see the construc-
tion workers from Nassau, who

tion after 40 original Urban
Renewal workers were termi-
nated last week on Grand
Bahama.

THE group of women —
employed with Urban Renew-
al since its inception in 2005 —
claim that they have been
replaced by FNM supporters.

While attending a PLP press
conference on Monday, The
Tribune was approached by
several of the women who
wanted to express their con-
cern about their abrupt dis-
missal.

Melvina Albury said. that
she was among the 42 persons
originally employed with
Urban Renewal under the
PLP government.

She said they received a ver-
bal termination notice last
Monday from a senior Social
Services officer.

The Tribune attempted to
reach the officer on Wednes-
day by telephone for com-
ment, but was told that he was
not in office at the time.

He did not return our calls
up to press time.

Ms Albury said that they
are still awaiting official let-
ters of termination from the

Beryl Bridgewater claims
that they have been replaced
by more than 70 FNM “gen-
erals”. She said she is very dis-
heartened by the situation.

“At this moment I feel sad.
I really think it is political

three years and now they fire
us and replace us with FNM

said. In January, Minister of

KGR officially released a
new CD and DVD package,
“Wave of Glory,” on June 24
to Wal-Mart stores across the

Selling for $16.98, the pack-

Corruption report on Turks and Caicos

WHILE reporting the findings of a House
of Commons foreign affairs committee of a
“palpable climate of fear” in need of investi-
gation in the Turks and Caicos Islands, The
Sunday Telegraph of London also observed
that “thanks to the tourist business, the econ-
omy’s growth rate (in the Turks-Caicos) since
2000 has been one of the highest in the
world.”

“The islands,” said The Sunday Telegraph,
“have become one of the most glamorous
destinations in the Caribbean.” World-class
hotels, reported the London newspaper, have
proliferated and “most tourists are from
Canada and the United States, but the islands
are also popular with British holidaymak-
ers.”

It has been a long time since such a glow-
ing report has been written about the
Bahamas. ;

However, the Turks and Caicos with its
35,000 inhabitants, has its problems, which if
reports are to be believed, could do a great
deal of damage to its international image.

' According to The Telegraph, “behind the
sleek image, the Commons foreign affairs
committee discovered an alarming picture
akin to a Graham Greene novel.”

Unlike the Bahamas, the Turks and
Caicos, still.a British overseas territory under

Foreign Office supervision,.is subject to inves-

tigation for any hint of corruption. One can
imagine the field day such a committee could
have had in the Bahamas over the past 35
years if these islands still had colonial sta-
tus. The UK committee made its discovery
when it was carrying out a routine survey of
Britain’s 14 remaining overseas territories.
During the inquiry the British MPs received
more than 50 letters from islanders com-
plaining of “rampant” corruption in the gov-
ernment, political interference with the judi-
ciary and the suppression of freedom of
speech.

The House of Commons Foreign Affairs
Committee has urged officials to call an
inquiry into the administration of the islands.

“The MPs said they were given a DVD ofa
meeting of Premier Michael Misick’s party
when he denounced the opposition as “trai-
tors”. Maybe we should send them a Hansard
transcript of the House of Assembly when
former MP Bradley Roberts denounced The
Tribune publisher as a terrorist likening her
writings to a “terrorist throwing a bomb into
the first crowd of persons they see.” Or on the

occasion when Prime Minister Hubert Ingra-
ham (in the days when he was still in the
Opposition) was accused of treason by the
Pindling government alleging that he had
given information to a U.S. agency about
drug dealers who came and went in these
islands seemingly with a great deal of free-
dom. It appeared that the document on which
the allegation was based might have been a
forgery.

When the UK MPs visited the Turks and
Caicos to investigate the allegations, their
report said that “alarmingly for a British
overseas territory, many individuals expressed
great concern about being seen to be talking
to British parliamentarians, and some indi-
viduals declined to meet us altogether for
this reason.”

It urged the British government to estab-
lish a commission of inquiry with full pro-
tection for witnesses who come forward.

"We witnessed this climate of fear for our-
selves when we visited the Turks and Caicos
Islands," the report said. ;

According to the Associated Press, “many
of the claims centred on Turks and Caicos
Premier Michael Misick, who is alleged to
have built up a multimillion dollar fortune
since he was elected in 2003.” When elected,
Mr Misick declared assets of only $50,000.

“Tourism is the islands' main industry,”
reported the AP, “and the economy has
grown rapidly since 2000. The legislators said
they had received claims that Premier Misick
and other government ministers had enriched
themselves by selling off government-owned
land to property developers.”

Mr Misick has denied corruption and said
the House of Commons Foreign Affairs
Committee had presented an “unbalanced
view” of his government. He claimed that
the report relied “primarily on allegations
made by political operatives of the PDM
(Opposition party) whose performance con-

tinues to demonstrate that their agenda is -

largely influenced and driven by an unhealthy
desire for power and selfish ambition,” Mr
Misick said.

The fact-finding UK mission condemned
the failure of the Foreign Office or the
island’s governor, Richard Tauwhare, to take
acuion.

In reply a Foreign Office minister has
undertaken to give “each recommendation
the fullest consideration ... and respond to
the committee in due course.”

The Bahamas hold a tradition’
held in their country, but this ~

time it was a very demonstrative
exercise of flying of their nation-
al flag.

July 4th, came and we saw
numerous Vehicles driving
around flying the stars and
stripes.

Our Independence Day is
coming soon and we are already
seeing hundreds flying our
majestic tricolour on their vehi-
cles and displayed and flying
over various buildings.

A Talk Show host this past
week suggested and encouraged
non-Bahamians to fly their flag
of their nations and scolded
callers who said that flags other
than the flag of the Bahamas
were inappropriate.

There is actually an official
flag protocol laid out in two
conventions which governs how
a flag should be respected,
flown and used in representa-
tions.

Only Ambassadors, High
Commissioners; Consul Gener-
als and Honorary Consuls may
fly the flag of a country other
than the host country where
they reside — in the case of
Honorary Consuls they may

only fly the flag of the country ~

they represent when they are
travelling on ‘official busi-
ness’— at no other time may a
foreign flag be flown so what

we witnessed on flag day by the
Haitian community was totally
irregular and any other day
when a group of nationals fly
their flag is actually illegal
unless of course it is within the
grounds of an Embassy or a res-
idence of an Ambassador, High
Commissioner, Consul General
or Honorary Consul as that
property is accepted as sover-
eign territory of that nation.

Regrettably over time hotels
have for example flown the
flags we see outside the Cable
Beach Hotels foreign flags but
really the flying of those flags is
illegal whether or not they have
guests from those countries or
have branches of their hotels in
those countries.

A flag represents a nation
and exclusively a person who
in a foreign country represents
that country — there is no
deviance and no second think-
ing. I was surprised that Nation-
al Security was encouraging
Bahamians overseas to fly the
Bahamian flag on July 10th —
they are totally wrong. At sports
events our athletes actually mis-
use our sovereign flag in the
way they drape it over them-
selves and permit the flag to be
dragged on the ground—that is
a no-no, it is in fact a serious
act of disrespect to the flag.

The flying of a tattered flag
— a flag that faded is also dis-
respectful. Here we see that all
over and no one corrects it.

Flags are required by these
conventions to be of the torrect
colours also. Editor, hoping that
from these points we will start
to respect the Bahamian flag —
go back to the correctness of
the Protocol and ensure that it
is kept. ;

I notice that certain churches
now exhibit flags — that is total-
ly incorrect, the sole flag that
may be exhibited is that of our
Bahamas unless the Head of
State, an Ambassador, High
Commissioner, a Consul Gen-
eral or an Honorary Consul is
present then you may exhibit
the flag of the Nation the per-
sonality represents. In practice
only the Bahamas flag should
be seen. Also for example the
Bahamian National Anthem
there is only one version and
not like we hear when the US
National Anthem is sung we
rarely hear one version but per-
sons singing The Bahamas
Anthem may not descant, har-
monise or change the official
melody of the anthem — of
course we hear this all the time
and Cable TV channel air a
wrong version of the National
Anthem daily when they open
their broadcasting seemingly
impervious to knowing right
from wrong possibly Dr Wis-
dom will change that?

Wilchcombe’s tirade unbelievable!

EDITOR, The Tribune.

I COULD not believe the
tirade spewing from Mr Obie Wil-
chombe as he castigated the Min-
ister of Tourism.

I think the opposition needs a
gentle reminder that you should
only compare apples with apples.

When Obie became Minister
of Tourism there were some
things that he inherited amongst
which the rich legacy left by Mr
Vincent Vanderpool Wallace, the
former Director General.

There were also items over
which the PLP had no contro:

mortgage debacle spreading like
triffords throughout the world.
Our tourism product was buoyant
due, in part, to all of this.

It seems that to whom much is
given much is required; whenever
the present Government assumes
power there is usually some cata-
strophe to hound it, Hurricane
Andrew springs to mind.

I am not sure that the Opposi-
tion is aware that not all Bahami-
ans suffer from short or conve-
nient memory lapses — neither
do we all suffer from ignorance! I

call on them to be better behaved
and stop insulting the intelligence
of the electorate.

With all my mixed Irish and
Scottish ancestry, if it were I Obie
was berating, I might have been
inclined to give him something
outside the halls!

Fashion designer Peter






Nygard receives lifetime
achievement award

CELEBRATED fashion
designer and philanthropist Peter
Nygard received a lifetime
achievement award for his con-
tribution to the country.

The award was presented at a
fashion show held during the 12th
annual Bahamas Fashion Week.

During the show, at the Rain-
forest Theatre at the Whyndam
Crystal Palace Resort, Mr Nygard
was heralded as an inspiration to
emerging designers by Kevin
Strakan, owner of Fifth Avenue
Marketing and Modeling Agency
and organiser of the event.

"This particular event certainly
touches my heart, this place
touches my heart," said Mr
Nygard, a permanent resident in
the Bahamas for the past 25 years.

"It's nice to support the fashion

Fourth CARICOM/Spain Summit
taking place in Madrid today

THE fourth CARICOM/Spain
Summit takes place at the Mon-
cloa Palace in Madrid today.

It is being held against the
backdrop of the celebration of
CARICOM Day at the World’s
Fair in Zaragoza, Spain.

CARICOM chairman Baldwin
Spencer, prime minister of
Antigua and Barbuda and Jose
Luis Zapatero, the prime minister
of Spain, will jointly preside over
the summit, to be held at the

palace housing the offices of the .

Spanish prime minister.

The fourth summit follows the
first in Port of Spain, Trinidad
and Tobago in 1999 and the oth-
er two in Madrid in 2002 and
2006.

Spain has emerged as the major
destination for CARICOM’s
exports to Europe, accounting for
30 per cent of the export trade in
2006, while Spain for its part is
the main European exporter to
the region with exports account-
ing for 20 per cent of the Euro-
pean total in 2006.

Spain has indicated a strong
interest in becoming a member
of the Caribbean Development
Bank (CDB) and in making a

contribution to the CARICOM
Development Fund.

Negotiations are underway in
respect of a proposed Spanish
contribution to the Special Devel-
opment Fund of the CDB.

The Caribbean heads of gov-
ernment will seek to bring their
Spanish counterpart up to date
with respect to: the CARICOM
Single Market and Economy;
heavily indebted emerging mar-
ket countries, of which seven of
the top 10 are CARICOM mem-
ber states; the Caribbean Sea Ini-
tiative which seeks to have the
Caribbean Sea internationally
recognised as a special area in the
context of sustainable develop-
ment; and trade and investment
in the region.

Spain is interested in discussing
the Alliance of Civilisations which
was established in 2005 by Spain
and Turkey to create global polit-
ical space to combat a lack of
mutual understanding and com-
munication between the western
world and the Arab-Islamic
world. A conference on this ini-
tiative was held in Saint Lucia in
2006.

COB's SIS initiative
is applauded by
environmentalist

@ By CAPUCINE DAYEN

THE College of the
Bahamas’ Small Island Sustain-
ability Programme, created in
response to the many environ-
mental issues facing the world
today, is the first of its kind any-
where.

Backed by a $10 million
donation by the Freedom Foun-
dation and the allocation of 10
acres of land by the Bahamian
government, it demonstrates
that COB has taken a proactive
stance in light of the growing
global concern about proper
management of natural
resources.

"We need to find solutions to
the complex challenges we face
as a small island developing

state," explained Janyne Hod- |

der, president of the college.
"To improve the quality of life,
to create sustainable prosperity:
we need problem solvers,
researchers, innovators, inven-
tors, designers, policy makers,
writers, developers and entre-
preneurs. The programme will
produce such change agents."

"This is.a unique opportunity
for countries like the Bahamas
to focus on issues that affect us
specifically," said Eric Carey,
executive director of the
Bahamas National Trust.

"We have 25 national parks,
spanning 700,000 acres of land
in our country. Programmes
such as SIS will bring more
awareness to the importance of
these types of natural
resources."

Mr Carey also explained that

“We need to find
solutions to the
complex
challenges we
face as a small

Janyne Hodder

the programme is significant
from an economic perspective,

as it presents many opportuni- .

ties in areas such as agriculture
and ecotourism.

“Persons with large proper-
ties on the family islands will
now have an opportunity to
develop those properties as eco-
lodges and other types of
ecofriendly projects."

He added that his organisa-
tion, with funding provided by
the European Union, is working
on an ecotourism project in
Andros.

“We will be looking to devel-
op linkages with COB to assist
us to develop our programmes.”

Many environmentalists, like
Eleanor Philips, director of the
Nature Conservancy, have
expressed their delight over the
donation by the Freedom Foun-
dation.

"It is a fantastic initiative and
I'd like to commend the college
for bringing this to the Bahami-
an people," she said.

Jinny McKinney, founder of
Cans 4 Kids, said: "This is an
excellent idea and I believe that
it is a wonderful opportunity for
our country.

“As long as the college focus-
es its attention on finding solu-
tions that are applicable to us —
bearing in mind mind-set, belief
systems and ways of operation —

The SIS undergraduate pro-

vative areas, including two

tems management and one in

ning.

The other we will be bache-
lor of arts degrees: one in eco-
tourism and development and
one in policy studies.

The new complex will include
a main building with conference

an animal science Jab, and ento-
mology lab, a plant pathology
lab, a food chemistry lab, a food

A farm house, a green house
and a chemical storage facility
will also be introduced.

Graduates of the programme
will be able to pursue careers
in environmental policy, agri-

THE elegant and sophisti-

Ball was the setting for the
presentation of the Sir Lyn-

gift of $300,000 to The Col-
lege of The Bahamas. This
sum is the result of fund
raising started seven years
ago, and is allocated to sup-

Library at The College of
The Bahamas. Benefactors
to the Lyford Cay Founda-
tion, College faculty and
staff and other loyal donors
have generously supported
the Library project over the
years and the Sir Lynden
Pindling Foundation joins
this donor group with this
contribution. A spokesman
said the College was delight-
ed to be the prime benefi-

ciary ‘of the’ foundation’ i

generosity aimed at honour-
ing Sir Lynden and support-
ing the vision to create the
University of The Bahamas,
a vision he wholeheartedly
supported.

foundation are very pleased
to make this donation to
The College and are espe-

to President Hodder that we

would give $300,000 this

year and now we are deter-

What should be the role of the writer in
society?

What is the state of writing in The Bahamas
today?

What level of support is there for Bahamian

Claim clause
in EPA ‘offends
constitution’

@ By ALISON LOWE
Tribune Staff Reporter
alowe@tribunemedia.net

ATTORNEYS have
claimed that a certain clause
in the Economic Partnership
Agreement the Bahamas is
set to-sign with Europe
“clearly offends the constitu-
tion.”

Paul Moss and Fayne

Thompson, attorneys and

EPA critics, claim there are
legal precedents that show
that a certain provision of the
agreement cannot be enacted
without a referendum being
put to the Bahamian people.

He claimed on Tuesday that
for this reason the Bahamian
constitution will “save” the
Bahamas from the EPA by
forcing the government to
offer citizens the right to vote
on the trade agreement when
it has otherwise indicated that
it does not intend to do so.

Article 227 of the EPA calls
for the institution of a “joint
CARIFORUM-EC council”
which shall “supervise the
implementation” of the EPA.

The council will be formed
of members of the Council of
the European Union, of the
European commission and
representatives of CARIFO-
RUM states.

The council “shall have the
power to take decisions in
respect of all matters covered
by this agreement. The deci-
sions taken shall be binding
on the parties and the signa-
tory CARIFORUM states,”

Mr Moss claimed that gov-

-ernment’s intention to sign

the agreement in light of this



“It runs counter to our
Constitution where our courts
have inherent jurisdiction.”



_ Attorney Paul Moss on government’s
intention to sign the agreement in light of

provision amounts to an
unconstitutional “attempted
usurpation of (the) authori-
ty” of the Bahamian courts.

“Tt runs counter to our
Constitution where our courts
have inherent jurisdiction,”
he told The Tribune.

Mr Moss and his colleague
Mr Thompson both represent
Bahamians Agitating for a
Referendum on Free Trade
(BARF), an organisation
which was originally formed
in opposition to the Free
Trade Agreement of the
Americas, and later opposed
CARICOM’s Common Sin-
gle Market and Economy
before turning to the EPA.

They have both called for
government to allow a refer-
endum on the EPA but Min-
ister of State for Finance
Zhivargo Laing has previous-
ly indicated that government
is not disposed to such an
option at this stage.

Mr Thompson was a panel-
list at a town meeting on the
EPA held on Tuesday
evening by the Bahamas
Association of Compliance
Officers — with Mr Laing and
Chamber of Commerce trade
consultant, Hank Ferguson —
while Mr Moss spoke when
he stood to ask a question of
the panellists after their pre-
sentations.

Mr Thompson said that a
Jamaican case sets a prece-
dent for the process the
Bahamas would have to fol-
low if it wanted to institute
the agreement given the pro-
vision for the formation of the
decision-making council.

In 2004 the Privy Council
ruled that any attempt by the
Jamaican government to

Caribbean Court of Justice

could only be done if
Jamaican citizens chose to do
so in a referendum as it would
otherwise be unconstitutional.

According to the two attor-
neys, the case reflects the
challenge thet would face the
Bahamas if it goes ahead with
signing the EPA.

“Whenever ihe government
comes to bring this agreement
to parliament (to enact the
enabling legislation) it must
be challenged on the basis

‘that our constitution provides

that the Supreme Court of the
Bahamas has inherent juris-
diction to deal with any mat-
ter touching and concerning
members of the Bahamian
public or those who are in
this jurisdiction,” said Mr
Moss.

“The government may have
its way on signing on to this
‘always delayed’ agreement,
but the Bahamian people with
have the final say,” he
claimed.

Mr Laing responded by say-
ing that any agreement signed
will have to be ratified by par-
liament and would be subject
to judicial review in the
Bahamas.

However, he appeared to
object to Mr Moss and
Thompson’s position when he
stated that the arrangement
insofar as the role of the joint
council acting as an ultimate
arbiter of EPA-related trade
is “how these things generally
work.”

“In the World Trade
Organisation, that is how it
works,” he said, noting the
case involving a complaint to
the WTO against the United
States by Antigua and Barbu-
da over the U.S’ ban on
online-gambling.

Exuma a modern
docking facility and
trans-shipment —

@ By GEORGE A SMITH
Former MP and
Cabinet minister

Bes has over the
years evolved as one

of the most important centres
in all the Family Islands, behind
only Grand Bahama and Aba-
co. But quite obviously — espe-
cially since the development at
Emerald Bay — it is destined to
be second only to New Provi-
dence.

Mindful of this vision, séri-
ous thought, attention, and
planning must now be given to
enhancing every facility in Exu-
ma that can play an important
part in its orderly development.
Most grievously needed in that
regard is a modern docking
facility, which would accommo-
date increased cargo shipping
requirements, and which sensi-
bly ought to be located away
from George Town with its pre-
dominantly touristic outlook
and activities.

New Providence is experi-
encing problems because of the
present location of its docking
facilities and the authorities are
seeking a solution. It would be
wise to use foresight for Exu-
ma. In planning a modern
docking facility for Exuma, con-
sideration should be given to
the following facts:

e It should be constructed at a
location that could be used as a
trans-shipment point to all of
the islands to the south i.e.
Ragged Island, Long Island,
Acklins, Crooked Island, Long
Cay, Mayaguana, Inagua and

possibly the Turks and Caicos -

Islands

e It should be located at a
point that would not necessi-
tate vessels having to enter Exu-
ma Sound in bad weather and
from the Sound into Elizabeth
Harbour

© It shéutd bé located where - ,

it would not cause heavy ground
transportation through George
Town and other touristic
areas

The former naval base site,
which is now under active con-
sideration, has serious flaws. It
is a shallow area that needs and
will continue to need constant
dredging both up to and at the
docking facility. It is in the heav-
ily populated touristic part of

CODING
REQUIRED



Great Exuma. For trans-ship-
ment purposes, when leaving
George Town to go to the

- Southern Islands, one would

have to go east around the
northern tip of Long Island into
the Atlantic Ocean. This is
impossible in bad weather con-
ditions. There is no passage
between Exuma and Long
Island. This circuitous route
necessitates going into the
rough Atlantic or back up to
the northwestern tip of
Baraterre around Pudding Point
and then south to the other
Islands thereby back tracking
many miles.

It should be obvious that the
anchorage at Pudding Point on
the northwest tip of Baraterre is
the ideal location for the port.

The Pudding Point site meets
all of the following require-
ments:

e It is protected from the
northwest, north, northeast,
east, southeast and south. The
prevailing winds of any conse-
quence come from those direc-
tions

e It has high land right to the
deep water in the protected
basin

e It has two major deep water
channels from both the north-
west bank (which will minimise
the necessity of entering Exuma
Sound) and the other entrance
from Exuma Sound during
good weather

e The site is just over two
miles from Baraterre and the
continuing road system through

Exuma: Little or .no dredging: -

would have to be done either
initially of on an ongoing basis

e This location would not
require an unreasonable expen-
diture of funds and would yield
many benefits

e A facility at Pudding Point
would infuse economic activity
in the general area inclusive of
the southern Exuma Cays and
contribute to the sustainability
of the area

e The need for and prof-
itability of a container terminal



at the facility would become
obvious This project could be
commenced now on an experi-
mental basis by building a gov-
ernment dock inside Pudding
Point harbour and a road to
Baraterre. The mail boat could
stop there initiating service to
Baraterre, Stuart Manor,
Rolleville, Steventon and south-
eastward to Farmers Hill includ-
ing Emerald Bay. This could be
done at a nominal cost.

It would be remembered that
in years past, mail boats would
stop at Rolleville and Rokers’
Point weather permitting, on
their way to George Town. The
dock at pudding Point would
greatly reduce the vehicular
traffic to George Town and the
mail boat could continue to
George Town if desired.

The Naval Base

As an adjunct to the above,

‘the Naval Base site is in an

unattractive state and it should
be beautified. The vendors at
the Fish Fry should be encour-
aged and financially supported
in improving their businesses.

The site ought to be used for
cultural and civic events, always
mindful that various resort
properties, the primary school
and the mini-hospital, which are
being built, are all in the imme-
diate vicinity. Good judgement
in this matter is imperative.

Elizabeth
Harbour

Elizabeth Harbour should be
re-named the Rolly Gray Har-
bour, it should be cleaned up,
enhanced and promoted as the
Cruising Capital of the south-
ern Bahamas and the home of
sloop sailing in the country.

In consideration of all the
above, I would be privileged to
assist in any way possible which
would cause the projects to
materialise.

workers to enter the country for

a limited period of time.

He said: “What (the clause)
does is it defines very specifical-
ly what arrangements would
exist for about four categories
of people.

“(The first category), we call
them ‘Key personnel’. So if you
are an investor and you estab-
lish an investment in the
Bahamas the opportunity exists
for you to have your key per-
sonnel, CEOs (Chief Executive
Officers), CFOs (Chief Finan-
cial Officers), come and work in
your operation for up to three
years.”

“Graduate trainees” are a sec-
ond. category of workers for
whom the process by which they
can enter the Bahamas to work
is defined in the agreement.

“So for instance if you have
an operation in Germany and a
subsidiary in the Bahamas and
you have a college graduate who
is a trainee there and you want
to give them some exposure in
your operation in the Bahamas
you would be able to provide
some opportunity for them to
be able to do so up to I think 18
months or so.”

Meanwhile, he added, there
are also provisions for workers
called “sales persons.”

These are people who “for a
90-day period can come and
market a product they might
have to a Bahamian market,” he
said.

The minister of state

explained that under the ~

Bahamas’ current immigration
policy there are already
“arrangements for each of
those” kinds of workers to enter
the Bahamas to work.

“The only thing that this
agreement does is define those
in the agreement for the rela-
tionship that exists between
Europe and the Cariforum com-
munity but it doesn’t require you
to do anything beyond what you
now do other than stipulate in
the context of that relationship
how those people would be
treated.”

for instance, that people will

the EPA so I’ve come looking
for a job. I don’t know a gov-
ernment of the Bahamas who
would do such a thing.”

The question of whether
Bahamian jobs would be threat-
ened if the government signs
onto the EPA with Europe
alongside the rest of the Carifo-
rum countries later this year is

one that has exercised the minds,

of numerous concerned Bahami-
ans as public awareness of the
looming trade agreement has
increased over the last few
months.

Bahamians Agitating for a
Referendum on Free Trade
(BARF) founders and attorneys
Paul Moss and Fayne Thomp-
son rallied straw vendors to
protest against the agreement
outside the House of Assembly
on the basis that the EPA would
threaten their livelihoods and
that of future generations of
Bahamians.

They contend the EPA is the
equivalent of “CSME (common
single market and economy) by
the backdoor” and would allow
the “free movement of labour”
from the Caribbean and Europe
to the Bahamas, a suggestion Mr
Laing has emphatically rejected
on many occasions.

He has spoken out against
“misinformation” being spread
about the EPA, also pointing
out that under the agreement
certain service sectors are pro-
tected or “bound”, from foreign
participation, including whole-
sale and retail trade — under
which straw vending falls.

John Pinder hasn’t

ruled out seeking
political office

FROM page one

replied:

"You know something, I have now come to the realisation
that too many people go into politics and they really don't in
particular understand the national issues or certainly they
don't understand the public service.

"I believe certainly I have a contribution I probably can
make at another level but I have to wait on God's calling for
that because J don't see myself having the finances to get in
involved in frontline politics — but if it's God's will - I'll go for
it.

"But I certainly would like to make a contribution on a
higher level, where I could cause some influence to be made on
some policy."

An issue he would like to see addressed is the creation of a
national pension scheme that would allow civil servants to
transfer their pension plan if they decide to relocate to the pri-
vate sector.

"I keep pushing this issue of (introducing) a national pension
scheme for the entire Bahamas to ensure that every worker in
this country has a pension plan in place so that if he or she
wishes to change a job, they can still take their pension bene-
fits with them.

"That's one of the things that's clogging up the public service
there are a number of civil servants who wish to go private or
move on, but the thing that keeps them in the public service is
that they have this pension they are looking forward to. If
that was a pension that could be transferred to another gov-
ernment corporation or a private agency, I believe a lot of them
would move on," he said.

Despite any aspirations to seek political office, Mr Pinder
contended that he has always remained bi-partisan when deal-
ing with union affairs:

"T stayed out of the general elections, I never campaigned for
(any) political party and I didn't campaign for any candidate.
I stayed out of it simply because I always want to have a neu-
tral and an independent position on anything I have to address
concerning a government decision that is not favourable to
workers in our country and particularly in the public service."

Man dies suddenly o

crabbing expedition

TRAGEDY struck at Eight
Mile Rock early on the Inde-
pendence Day holiday, when a
man died suddenly while on a
crabbing expedition in West
Grand Bahama.

Donald Pinder, 42, of
Pinedale, Eight Mile Rock, was
in a bushy area around Bootle
Bay, along with his wife and oth-
er family members, catching
crabs, when he suddenly col-
lapsed at around 9am.

Other persons crabbing in the
vicinity were alerted to the inci-
dent and rushed to the family's
assistance. They help transport
Mr Pinder to the West End Clin-
ic, where he was pronounced
dead upon arrival.

The Central Detective Unit

and West End Police officers _
‘examined the body and saw no

signs of physical injury.

Foul play is not suspected in
this matter at this time. However,
an autopsy will be performed at
the Rand Memorial Hospital in
order to determine the exact
cause of death.

Astronauts handling
explosives on spacewalk

@ CAPE CANAVERAL, Fla.

TWO space station astronauts took a daring spacewalk Thursday to
cut into the insulation of their descent capsule and remove an explo-
sive bolt with firecracker force — enough to blow off their hands,
according to Associated Press.

Flight controllers in Moscow assured Sergei Volkov and Oleg

Kononenko, both Russians, that the bolt would not detonate and.

that the unprecedented job would help ensure their safe return to
Earth in the Soyuz capsule this fall. Nonetheless, Mission Control
repeatedly urged the men to be careful as they worked near the
explosives.

NASA said its own engineers were convinced the spacemen would
be in no danger, and that it would be all right for them to put the explo-
sive bolt in a blast-proof canister and take it into the space station for
eventual return to Earth. ,

The past two Soyuz descents have been steep, off-course and bone-
jarring, and the Russian Space Agency wants to avoid the problem
when Volkov and Kononenko fly home in October. The capsule cur-
rently docked at the, space station ferried up the two Russians in
April.

Kononenko used a serrated knife to cut away the thick shiny insu-
lation surrounding the bolt — a tool normally shunned by space-
walkers because of the possibility of piercing their pressurized suits or

As the spacewalk hit the three-hour mark, the spacewalkers began
installing devices to eliminate static electricity.

They had a wrench for removing the 3-inch pyrotechnic bolt, one of
10 used to separate two parts of the module during re-entry.

During Soyuz descents this past April and in October 2007, these
two sections did not separate properly, leading to so-called ballistic
entries that submitted the crews to far higher gravity forces than nor-

mal.

Russian engineers suspect some of the explosive bolts did not fire.
By disabling the bolts in this suspect location, there should be no ~

mechanical hang-up during the October descent, officials said.

Environmentalists voice concerns despite UN



world heritage site status for butterfly reserve

@ MEXICO CITY

ENVIRONMENTALISTS
fear the decision to list Mex-
ico's wintering grounds of the
Monarch butterfly as a U.N.
world heritage site may do
little to halt deforestation that
threatens the butterflies,
according to Associated Press.

UNESCO bestowed the
global landmark distinction
Monday on the Monarch
reserve, a series of mountain
forests west of Mexico City

where the butterflies spend .

the winter after migrating
thousands of miles (kilome-
ters) from the United States
and Canada.

"The listing isn't going to
produce results unless there is
an integral plan for the
reserve," Mexican environ-
mentalist Ivan Restrepo said
Tuesday. "I hope this serves
as a wake-up call and doesn't



just serve as an advertise-
ment."

The Mexican government
says it has turned the corner
in defending the dense fir
forests that shelter the Mon-
archs from the winter cold.

Ernesto Enkerlin, Mexico's
commissioner of natural pro-
tected areas, said the defor-
estation problem today is
confined to a few small farm-

‘ing communities that account

for about 6 percent of the
139,000-acre (56,259 hectare)
reserve.

Trees

It is mostly in those areas
that the reserve continues to
lose about 100 hectares (247
acres) of trees per year.

He acknowledged "it's a
disaster" in the problem com-
munities where much of the
land is clear-cut, but said

trees are starting to grow
back in the rest of the
reserve, where local residents
are cooperating.

"We are entering into a
new phase of the Monarch
butterfly reserve, one of
recovery," Enkerlin said.

Boundary disputes, indige-
nous issues and local rivalries
are also making it difficult for
authorities to work in those
areas, he said.

Enkerlin acknowledged
that illegal logging was so bad
at the reserve three years ago
that if authorities had pro-
posed it World Heritage sta-
tus, "we would have gotten
absolutely nowhere."

Environmentalist Homero
Aridjis, Mexico's representa-
tive to UNESCO, said the
current government is mak-
ing greater efforts to protect
the butterflies, and that the
UNESCO listing may help by



boosting the flow of tourists
to the reserve, providing
financial incentives for
preservation.,

It also may help change the
attitude of local farmers
whose land constitutes much
of the reserve.,

Journey

Each September, the but-
terflies, begin a 3,400-mile
(5,470-kilometer) journey

. from the forests of eastern

Canada and parts of the Unit-
ed States to the government-
protected reserves in the cen-
tral Mexican mountains.

While the heritage-site
listing is decided by the
U.N. Educational, Scientific
and Cultural Organization,
individual governments
where sites ‘are located are
responsible for protecting
them.

Amid oil boom, iniation

@ By DONNA ABU-NASR
Associated Press Writer

RIYADH, Saudi Arabia —
Sultan al-Mazeen recently
stopped at a gas station to fill
up his SUV, paying 45 cents a
gallon — about one-tenth
what Americans pay these
days.

But the Saudi technician
says Americans shouldn't be
jealous. Inflation that has hit
30-year highs on everything
else in the kingdom is making
Saudis feel poorer despite the
flush of oil money.

While Saudis don't feel the

three years, according to a
report Sfakianakis wrote for

Three artists get creative

Sultan al-Mazeen

that this oil boom will n

pain at the pump, they feel it
everywhere else; paying more
at grocery: stores and restau-
rants and for rent and con-
struction material. While the
country is getting richer selling
oil at prices that climbed to a
record $145 per barrel last
week, inflation has reached
almost 11 percent, breaking
double-digits for the first time
since the late 1970s.

"Gas prices are low here, so
what?" said Muhammad
Abdullah, a 60-year-old
' retiree. "What can I do with

gas? Drink it? Take it with me
to the supermarket?"

Al-Mazeen says his month-
ly grocery bill has doubled —
to $215 — compared to last
year, when oil was at around
$70 a barrel: During that time

‘period, the price of rice has
doubled to about 72 cents a
pound, and a pound of beef
has gone up more than a third
to about $4.”

Moreover, Saudis are grap-’
pling with unemployment —
estimated at 30 perceat among
young people aged 16 to 26
— and a stock market that is
down 10 percent since the
beginning of the year.

in zero gravity; two fall ill

: ml MOSCOW

EVEN the black cat got queasy.
Three British artists tried this week to make art in zero gravity — one

used the cat and a mouse for a performance piece — aboard an aircraft
: used to train cosmonauts, but only one completed his work. The oth-
; er two artists felt ill, according to Associated Press.

The plane made 10 parabola-shaped flights before landing at

: Moscow's Star City cosmonaut training center.

The artists experienced zero gravity in 23-second intervals during the

flight, a series of steep climbs and sharp drops that simulate weight-
: lessness.

While on board, artist Lyn Hagan filmed the predator-prey reactions

: of the cat and mouse in zero-gravity conditions.

Both the cat and Hagan became:sick after about three loops of the

: plane, which cut.the piece short, said Nasser Azam, one of the artists
: to ride the plane, nicknamed a "vomit comet." He said he did not feel

queasy.
"What we found out was that the cat turned into a mouse," Azam

Neither animal was injured during the flight, Azam said. :
Luke Jerram, the third artist on board, became ill and his project was .

cut short.

A free-floating Azam, meanwhile, finished pre-prepared paintings

: of disembodied figures inspired by the artist Francis Bacon. Azam
: said he wanted to pay homage to Bacon's paintings.

"Quite frankly it was euphoric," Azam said after the flight. "There

: were instances when I was painting upside down."

The former Merrill Lynch chief operating officer began his canvas-

es in London using paint and finished them on board using oil pastels.
: Paint would have floated in zero-gravity conditions, he said.

Hagan conceived of the "Life In Space" project in 2004 and subse-

quently contacted the Russian Space Agency, which according to
: Azam offered the flight free of charge.

Azam is now the artist-in-residence at London's County Hall Gallery,

: which covered the project's remaining expenses.

The results of the trip will be on show at the County Hall Gallery in

: October.

Sudoku is a number-placing puzzle based on a 9x9 grid with
several given numbers. The object is to place the numbers 1 to
9 in the empty squares so the each row, each column and each
3x3 box contains the same number only once. The difficulty
ievel of the Conceptis Sudoku increases from. Monday to
Sunday

























©2008 Conceptis Puzzles, Dist. by King Features Syndicate, Inc.

Difficulty Level * *& *

Best described as a number crossword, the task in Kakuro is to
fill all of the empty squares, using numbers 1 to 9, so the sum of
each horizontal block equals the number to its left, and the sum
of each vertical block equals the number on its top. No number
may be used in the same block more than once. The difficulty



level of the Conceptis Kakuro increases from Monday to Sunday.

Artur Timofeev v Ernesto Inarkiev,

. Moscow Open 2008. Russia's oil
- revenues are helping chess. The

winner of today's puzzle stood to
collect $30,000 while the Aeroflot
Open, which immediately followed,
had a still larger prize fund. Not

enough for elite grandmasters, who ‘which white soon mates with king and queen against

stayed away or competed in the
Mexican invitational whose dates
clashed with Aeroflot. But second
line GMs were glad of the
opportunity, and today's game was
bitterly fought for more than 100
moves. It could have ended much
quicker, however, if Timofeev (White,
to move) had found the right choice
in the diagram. Of course rook and
pawn against bishop and pawn can
be tricky, but White's 1 Re8? was

limp and unnecessarily prolonged
the game, Can you find the precise
selection which would have forced
Black's speedy resignation?

Opening lead — nine of spades.

Dear Mr. Becker: | have been a
reader of your column for many
years and have followed with interest
your recounting of the exploits of
some of the most prominent players
in the world.

However, though I’ve never won a
national championship or, for that
matter, any other kind of champi-
onship, I hereby stake my claim to at
least equal recognition as one of the

A Tall Tale

world’s foremost players.

The only catch is that all my mar-
velous bids and plays take place
while I’m asleep, and ] must confess
that there is an enormous difference
between the way | play when I’m
awake and the way | play when I’m
asleep. In case you don’t believe me,
just ask my partners how I play when
I’m not in the land of Nod.

Here is a typical example of my
prowess. I played the hand just last
night — while asleep, of course. |
was West and led the nine of spades.
My wife, Sapphira, won the trick
with the king and continued with the
ace and another spade.

I’m sure everybody would think
that South must now make the con-
tract, since his only losers, as the
cards lie, appear to be two diamond
tricks. But, as | stated earlier, these
players are totally unaware of the
brilliance of my play when I am in
the arms of Morpheus.

On Sapphira’s ace of spades |
discarded the king of diamonds, and
on the third round of spades | dis-
carded the ace of diamonds! As a
result of these two plays, there was
nothing South could do to avoid
going down two.

Cordially yours, Ford E. Winx.

Tomorrow: Bidding quiz.

Hoe a eH
Bay offer likely ‘in
two-three weeks’

‘Mix of players’
changes in
buyer group




@ By NEIL HARTNELL
Tribune Business
Editor






THE $320 million Four
Seasons Emerald Bay
Resort’s receiver has told
The Tribune he is hoping the
hotel’s potential buyer will
submit a revised proposal to
the Government in “the next
two to three weeks”, its
investor mix having changed.

Russell Downs, a London-
based PricewaterhouseC-
oopers (PwC) partner, said a
completed purchase of Exu-
ma’s ‘anchor resort’ proper-
ty was “a little way away”,
given the need for Govern-
ment approval and the trans-
action’s complexity,
although he hoped it would
close “soon”.

“The next sort of two to
three weeks is the window
we are looking at,” Mr
Downs said, when asked
about when the Four Sea-
sons Emerald Bay Resort’s
proposed buyer would sub-
mit a revised bid to the Gov-
ernment, the first one having
been rejected by the Ingra-
ham administration.

He added: “We’re in that
critical stage where my stat-
ed aim is to achieve a sale
of the resort, and hopefully
we will have constructive
news on that pretty soon.”

Mr Downs indirectly con-
firmed Tribune Business’s
previous revelation. that the
Government rejected the
initial $125 million offer. by.
Ambrose Holdings
(Bahamas) due to concerns
over whether the group had
the financial wherewithal
and ability to take the Four
Seasons Emerald Bay
Resort forward and com-
plete its full build-out.

When this sequence of
events was put to Mr
Downs, he replied: “That’s
neatly put.” He also con-
firmed that “the mix of play-
ers has changed” in the buy-
ing group, indicating that
Ambrose Holdings
(Bahamas) may no longer
be playing the lead role and
that other investors, with
greater equity capital and
resort industry expertise,
may have been brought in
to convince the Government
that the deal should be
approved.

Legal action ‘highly likely’
on ‘retroactive’ tax move

@ By NEIL HARTNELL
Tribune Business Editor

IT IS “highly likely” that the Government
and Customs Department will face legal action
over attempts to “retroactively” apply the
higher 2008-2009 Budget tax rates to ‘post
paid’ bonded good sales that occurred dur-

* GBPA licensees see June post-paid duty
submissions rejected by Bahamas Customs °

ing the previous Budget year, a former Grand

Bahama Chamber of Commerce president

told Tribune Business.

Christopher Lowe, operations manager at
Kelly’s (Freeport), who is consulting an attor-
ney on his legal options after the company’s
submission of taxes collected in June on ‘post
paid’ over-the-counter bonded goods sales
was rejected, suggested there were four poten-
tial avenues for seeking legal recourse.

The first, he said, was to seek a Supreme
Court injunction preventing Bahamas Cus-
toms from applying the new — and often high-

‘Many’ real estate sales

delayed by Gazette wait —

Concern expressed about work
permit fees being made retroactive

@ By NEIL HARTNELL
Tribune Business Editor

THE Bahamas Real Estate
Association’s (BREA) presi-
dent has told Tribune Busi-
ness he is receiving calls from
the group’s members express-
ing concern that “many” prop-
erty transactions are being
held up by the wait for the
2008-2009 Budget tax breaks
to become law.

The Budget introduced
numerous real estate and con-
struction industry-related tax
breaks, particularly on the
Stamp Tax and Real Property
Tax, but William Wong said
BREA members and their
clients were still waiting for
these changes to be Gazzetted
and thus become law, so they
could take advantage of them.

“That is an issue, and we’re
waiting for this thing to
become legal,” Mr Wong told
Tribune Business. “It can’t
happen until the Budget is
Gazzetted.

“Right now, that’s holding
up a lot of closings and sales,
because this thing with the
Gazette is not happening.
We’ve been told it’s immi-
nent.”

Although he did not have
numbers, Mr Wong said the
failure to Gazette and bring
into law the tax incentives
designed to stimulate the real
estate industry, especially the
first-time homebuyer market,
had delayed “many sales”
based on the calls he was
receiving from BREA-
licensed realtors.

“In know this is affecting
some of my members,” Mr
Wong said. “I did get calls
from a number of my mem-
bers that there is a hold-up
because this thing has not
been made law yet.”

Christopher Lowe, opera-
tions manager at Kelly’s
(Freeport), told Tribune Busi-
ness that attorneys had
informed him that they were
experiencing difficulty in clos-
ing real estate transactions,
too, due to the failure to pub-
lish and Gazette in the news-
paper the new Stamp Tax and
Real Property Tax amend-
ments.

Wayne Munroe, the
Bahamas Bar Association’s
president, did not return Tri-
bune Business’s call seeking
comment.

In his Budget debate

speech, Mr Ingraham said all
first-time homebuyers would
be exempt from Stamp Tax
on property purchases up to
$500,000 in value for a five-
year period, provided the
property would be used as
their primary residence.

The threshold at which first-
time homebuyers will be
exempt from paying real prop-
erty tax for the first five years
was increased from $250,000

THE costs associated with the Bahamas

‘implementing its. Economic Partnership Agree-

ment obligations (EPA) with the European
Union will possibly be no more than $2 million,
although the minister of state for finance,
Zhivargo Laing, said that he was hesitant to put
an exact figure out.

Speaking at a Bahamas Association of Com-
pliance Officers (BACO) seminar on the EPA,
Mr Laing said much of that expense will go
towards the upgrading of operational systems
such as the Customs Department’s computer
banks, and creating a Standards Bureau and
competition policies. These bodies will have
to be created, plus there is the actual cost
involved in creating EPA legislation and pass-
ing it into law.

However, he pointed out that many of the
changes or upgrades that will be made are ones
that have already been provided for, or ones
that the Government would have had to make

Mr Laing said the Bahamas also had most of
the necessary human resource capital already in
place, and had hired other personnel already.

Hank Ferguson, the trade advisor to the
Bahamas Chamber of Chamber, added that
some of the cost involved will be borne by the
EU through the contributions it makes not
only on a regional basis, but to individual coun-
tries as well.

He also indicated that the Bahamas would
receive some level of compensation for signing
on to the agreement.

Mr Ferguson indicated that two major factors
to be dealt with will be the competition aspect
and the Standards Bureau, which would
create initial costs but have real economic ben-
efit.

Hearing the arguments for and against the
EPA, Mr Ferguson said it has little to do with
politics and less to do with allies, but was relat-
ed to the fact that the Bahamas needs allies so
that it does not always remain on the outside
looking in.

He added that given the fact that services
accounts for so much of the economy, it was

Ambrose Holdings
(Bahamas) ability to finance
the purchase was not in ques-
tion, the company also having
an interest in the nearby
Roker’s Point project in Exu-
ma.

Tribune Business under-
stands the Government’s main
concern is to ensure any buyer
will provide a long-term solu-
tion and the necessary capital.
The last thing the administra-
tion would want is for the Four
Seasons Emerald Bay Resort
to go into receivership again
several years from now.

“We’re moving through to
the final stages of the transac-
tion. We’re working with the
parties to try and bring this to

fruition,” Mr Downs told Tri-

bune Business.

“There’s obviously signifi-
cant complexity in this trans-
action, and a number of people
are working pretty hard to
complete on this. We’re not
there yet, but hopefully we will
be quite soon. I can’t give a
view on time, other than that
we will get there soon.”

The PwC partner said the
Four Seasons Emerald Bay
Resort had been in receiver-
ship for over a year now, and
while its performance had
“dropped off slightly”, this was
due to the state of the tourism
market and global economy,
rather than the receivership.

“The resort has its own
brand, and we structured this
to take the receivership a long
way from that,” Mr Downs
said. “IJ was there the other
week and had a tour with the
manager. It was a lovely day
and the resort looked great.
But people will wait and see
what the next stage in the
resort’s ownership will be.”

Adding that PwC was “work-
ing constantly with a number
of parties to minimize” the
effect the global liquidity/cred-
it market crunch is having on
the search for a buyer, Mr
Downs said: “Receivership is
not a long-term solution. ’m
sure everyone wants a conclu-
sion to the receivership sooner

Revised Emerald Bay offer
likely ‘in two-three weeks’

rather than later, and that’s
what we’re trying to achieve.”

The impending retirement of
his fellow receiver, Nassau-
based PwC partner Wayne
Aranha, would have no impact
on the buyer search; Mr Downs
added.

The Four Seasons property,
considered the model or
“poster child” of the Family
Island anchor investment pro-
jects, entered into receivership
after the ownership company,
Emerald Bay Resort Holdings,
defaulted on its loan repay-
ments in April 2007.

‘The receivers were appoint-
ed at the behest of the resort’s
main creditor, nominee Flint
Securities, which is based im
London. However, the main
creditor, and the entity with
most exposure to the resort, is
said to be the London arm of
the Japanese bank, Mitsui.

Emerald Bay’s owners had
been looking to sell the resort
for some 18 months to two
years before their loan default,
and several potential deals fell
through.

These included a $117 mil-
lion offer from Petters Group
Worldwide, plus a combined
bid from the private equity arm
of Goldman Sachs and Rock-
point. It is estimated that a
potential buyer would need to
spend at least $7 million to
complete proposed plans for
the 23-acre marina.

Emerald Bay has acted as
Exuma’s main economic



nS

WEEKENDS

engine, attracting additional
foreign direct investment to the
island. It employs almost 500
staff, and features an 18-hole
Greg Norman Golf Course,
two restaurants, three pools,
spa, six meeting rooms
and 450-person capacity ball-
room.

Other investment projects
attracted to the Emerald Bay
vicinity include the resort’s Pin-
nacle Entertainment-managed
$5 million casino, the $110 mil-
lion Grand Isle Villas develop-
ment, plus the 80/50 fractional
ownership component.

A shopping complex has also
opened at Emerald Bay, the
anchor retailer being the Emer-
ald Isle supermarket. The com-
plex also includes businesses’
such as Scotiabank and Mail
Boxes Etc.

While Four Seasons, as the
operating/management part-
ner, may be earning a profit
because it collects its money as
a percentage of the gross rev-
enues and operating profits, the
resort’s owners - like so many
in the Bahamas - are not and
are losing money.

Their failure to generate sig-
nificant critical mass through
real estate and land sales, the
sectors most likely to give them
an instant - and greatest -
investment return have also
contributed to the difficulties,
as have the resort’s high con-
struction costs and traditional-
ly high operating costs in the
Bahamas.

China's June trade surplus shrinks

@ BEIJING

CHINA'S rapid export
growth plunged in June, the gov-
ernment reported Thursday, and
analysts said Beijing might
respond by slowing its curren-
cy's rise in defiance of pressure
from Washington and other
trading partners, according to
Associated Press.

Appreciation of China's yuan
against the dollar "will slow sig-

nificantly" in the second half of ~

the year, after the currency rose
at an annualized rate of 12 per-
cent against the dollar in the first
half, said economist Mingchun
Sun of Lehman Brothers.
China's global trade surplus
in June was $21.3 billion, the
biggest monthly gap since
December, but a 20 percent

decline from the same month :
last year, according to the Chi- :
na's General Administration OF;
Customs.

Exports rose by 18.2 percent :
over the year-earlier period to :
$121.5 billion — a sharp drop :
from May's 28 percent growth }
rate, the data showed. Imports :
surged 23.7 percent to $100.1 bil- ;
lion.

The figures reflect weaker |

global demand for Chinese : :
goods amid worries about a pos- :
sible U.S. recession, while Chi- :
na's robust growth and con- }

sumer spending drive imports.

"This is crunch time for Chi- :
na," said Standard Chartered :
economist Stephen Green. "Bei- :
jing is more than a little con- :
cerned about the impact of a }

slowing global economy."

Referendum urged
before EPA signing

m@ By CARA
BRENNEN-BETHEL
Tribune Business
Reporter

THE Government should
not commit the Bahamas to
signing the Economic Part-
nership Agreement (EPA)
with the European Union
(EU) before the Bahamian
people vote on it in a refer-
endum, an asttorney said,
arguing that regional experts
believe the treaty may not
assist the national develop-
ment of individual Caribbean
states.

Fayne Thompson, co-chair
of Bahamians Agitating for a
Referendum on Free Trade
(BARF), the group that has

been very vocal in its oppo-
sition to the EPA, said: “The

Government does not have

the right to make such an
important decision behind
close doors, taken by 40 peo-
ple and maybe a few bureau-
crats.”

Agreement

Addressing a Bahamas
Association of Compliance
Officers (BACO) seminar on
the Economic Partnership
Agreement, Mr Thompson
stressed the whole question
of whether this nation should
sign the trade agreement
with the EU should be put
to the people in a referen-
dum.

Instead, under the current
process, the Government will
first decide whether the
Bahamas will sign the EPA -
the signing ceremony having
been pushed back to Sep-
tember 2008 - before coming
to Parliament to present a
Bill to ratify and give effect
to the treaty’s obligations in
Bahamian law.

Mr Thompson accused the
Government of not being as
forthcoming as it should
have been in providing infor-
mation on the EPA to the
Bahamian public, leading to
much confusion on the goods
and services offers the coun-
try is making.

‘For example, he said that
until that evening [Wednes-
day], he had been unaware
of just how the EPA’s
requirements for the move-
ment of labour would be
implemented.

Mr Thompson argued that
in his view it was irresponsi-
ble to have the Bahamas sign
on to such an agreement,
which various regional
experts have determined is
not one that may significant-
ly aid the Caribbean’s devel-
opment.

He added out that in the
general scheme of things, the
exports the Bahamas sup-
plied to the EU - seafoods
and Polymers - accounted for
less than 0.1 per cent of the

EU’s total imports each year.
Those Bahamian exports are
currently allowed into the
European Union duty and
quota free.

Zhivargo Laing, minister
of state for finance, who was
also a seminar panellist,
countered that whole Family
Island communities were
dependent on supplying lob-
sters (crawfish) to Bahami-
an wholesalers for onward
supply to the EU.

Rights

- They needed that revenue
income to survive, and he
said no responsible govern-
ment could fail to protect the
rights of that sector of soci-
ety by losing duty-free access
to Europe.

Mr Laing also countered
that information on the EPA
was provided on his min-
istry’s website, as this was
the best medium in which to
make it public, given the
sheer size of the agreement
document.

The two men were joined
by the Bahamas Chamber of
Commerce’s advisor on
trade, Hank Ferguson, at the
Town Meeting, which was
well attended.

Both panellists and audi-
ence members were very
vocal and passionate.

only card customers need for an easy,
fast and safe way to pay.”

at any Scotiabank branch or at automat-
ed teller machines (ATMs) across the

machines worldwide.

The Scotiacard with Visa Debit also

tect. This benefit that will be provided
free of charge to all holders of the Scoti-
aCard with Visa Debit, will insure items
bought with the ScotiaCard against theft
and damage. In addition, tickets for an
airplane, ship, train or bus, will be cov-
ered for travel accident insurance.
Scotiabank customers are encouraged

to visit their branch, where the Bank will
replace their existing card, free of charge.
Customers must provide their existing
ScotiaCard and two pieces of identifica-
tion.

i Mr Ingraham said during the Budget debate: “The amend-

i: “These revenue measures will have a significant impact.

“They are being rejected on
the grounds that the new tariff
rates apply retroactively back
through May and June,” Mr
Lowe said of GBPA licensees’
post-paid duty entries.

“July is not when the transac-
tions, upon which the revenue
collection is based, took place.
It’s based on the act of the day. I
could accept the changed rates
and headings for July, but only if
we are notified.”

He added: “They’re [Customs]
holding me responsible for col-
lecting the revenue due to them at
the time of the transaction. They
cannot come back to me a year
later for more money because the

law has changed.

“How can they make it retroac-
tive? At this point, it is highly
likely that there will be-litigation,
unless we receive some commu-
nication from the authorities that
seems to correct the practices of
Customs.

“Not only are they seeking to
make collections for May and
June retroactive to the Act, from
July 1 they will be collecting post-
paid duty submissions for July
when no one will know what to
collect for them.”

The Kelly’s (Freeport) opera-
tions manager estimated that the
overall impact from the Budget
tax changes, which saw many tax
rates ‘rounded up’ — for example,
from 42 per cent to 45 per cent —
would be to increase duty rates

dise by a 20 per cent average.

“In effect, Kelly’s is going to
collect a 40 per cent average rate
for Customs, compared with an
average 30 per cent rate in the
past. That’s generally a rule,” he
said. Customs collected on aver-
age $100 million in duties from
Freeport per annum, with some
40 per cent of that thought to be
generated by post-paid sales, fig-
ures that give an indication of
what is at stake for both the Gov-
ernment finances and GBPA
licensees. ;

Mr Lowe told Tribune Busi-
ness that Kelly’s (Freeport’s)
post-paid duty submission to Cus-
toms for May 2008 had initially
been rejected on June 8, the
department citing the fact that
tariff rates and headings had
changed as a result of the 2008-
2009 Budget.

However, after a phone con-
versation with an official in Cus-
toms’ entry-checking department,
the original submission for May
was put back in, accepted and
paid for on June 23.

Mr Lowe said one critical prob-
lem was that the Customs Depart-

/ment had changed the tariff rates

and headings in its computer sys-
tem to reflect the 2008-2009 Bud-
get changes before the old fiscal
year had been completed.

Now, Customs was unable to
reconcile the rates and tariff
headings in post-paid duty sub-
missions sent in this month for
May and June 2008 because it had
wiped these from its computer
system.

Mr Lowe said the Govern-
ment’s failure to properly inform
both GBPA licensees and
Freeport-based Customs officials
of the tariff rate and heading
changes in a timely manner had
thrown the post-paid duty system
into “confusion”.

“Everyone is very busy trying
to upgrade their systems based
upon the new tariff rate books
that were made available only
after July 1. Those changes are
so broad-based, sweeping and
evolutionary that it’s no overnight
task,” Mr Lowe said.

“It’s across the board. The tar-
iff rates have changed, the head-
ings have changed and they did it
to most line items. A week or two
will be required to change point
of sale systems to reflect and col-
lect the correct duty and excise
rates.”

Two other potential legal chal-
lenges, he suggested, were to seek
Supreme Court declarations on
whether Customs was “the
enforcer of licensee compliance”
on bonded goods, sivénthe terms
of the GBPA licence and Hawks-
bill Creek Agreement.



NOTICE

The GBPA licensees could also
seek a declaration of their stand-
ing on the collection and remit-
tance of post-paid duty, based on
the rates and headings in
existence at the time or the Cus-
toms’ goods entry approval stamp
date.

Mr Lowe said he understood
Customs officers in Freeport only
received copies of the new Tariff
and Excise Act rates and head-
ings on July 2, one day after they
were supposed to take effect.

This left Customs playing catch
up as it familiarized itself with
the new data, and caused clear-
ance of imported items to slow
down.

Mr Lowe added that he himself
was only able to obtain the new
rate book on July 3 by paying
$300 for a copy from the Prime
Minister’s Office, after first check-
ing with Zhivargo Laing, minister
of state for finance, that copies
were available.

Freeport, through the Hawks-
bill Creek Agreement and with
the support of numerous
Supreme Court rulings against
Bahamas Customs, works differ-
ently from all other parts of the
Bahamas when it comes to tax
collection.

Freeport-based wholesalers
and retailers are able to sell bond-
ed goods, meaning that no import
or stamp duties have been paid
on them at the border, to other
GBPA licensees provided the
goods are for use in their own
business.

Yet they also collect ‘post paid’
duties — taxes paid after the prod-
ucts are sold — if the goods and
materials are purchased by
Freeport residents and individuals
for use in their homes.

In this case, Freeport’s mer-
chants calculate the duty due to
the Government ‘post import’ on
its landed cost, and remit the cor-
rect amount to Customs by the

15th of each month.

What has happened to the
Freeport post-paid duty sales sys-
tem, and across the Bahamian
business community generally as
a result of the Budget tax
changes, indicates that imple-
mentation and public relations
were not perhaps all they should
have been.

Still, the business community
seemed to switch off post-Bud-
get communication, and not take
notice of Prime Minister Hubert
Ingraham’s Budget debate
speech, in which he indicated tar-
iff rates would be rounded up as
the Government sought to bal-
ance its tax cuts with fiscal
responsibility and ensure the
administration had enough rev-
enue to meetitsneeds.

THE TRIBUNE

FRIDAY, JULY 11, 2008, PAGE 11B



FROM page one

the extensive investment in infra-
structure, the company’s cash
flow position decreased, with the
result that the Board deemed it
advisable not to declare a divi-
dend,” Mr Sands wrote.

“This was a painful decision
but a prudent one, as the infor-
mation was not readily available.
We are hopeful, however, that
we can resume paying quarterly
dividends as soon as the 2008
financial statements are avail-
able.”

The Bahamas Supermarkets’
chairman’s comments also con-
firmed Tribune Business’s report
that cash flow had been impacted
by a “too aggressive” role-out of
the company’s $4 million in-store
IT upgrades.

His letter also confirmed
another aspect of this newspa-
per’s June 30, 2008, report, name-
ly that the 12-store City Markets
chain operator had suffered an
“invoice backlog”, forcing it to
work its way through a mountain
of inventory and accounts
payables records that have now
been brought up to date.

Although Mr Sands’ letter did
not confirm this, sources had also
previously told Tribune Business
that the cash flow issues had
impacted Bahamas Supermar-
kets’ ability to buy bulk product
shipments from its main US-
based wholesale supplier, Super-
value International. As a result,
the company had been increas-
ingly sourcing product through
Bahamas-based wholesalers in
smaller purchases.

Describing Bahamas Super-
markets’ problems as “tempo-
rary”, and the company as “fun-
damentally sound”, Mr Sands
added: “We fully expect to
restore its financial health in the
ensuing months.”

As for the 2007 financial state-
ments; Mr Sands said the external

auditor, KPMG, had advised that :

all “material aspects of their field-
work” had been completed. Pro-
vided Bahamas Supermarkets
was able to “satisfactorily
respond” to any queries raised
over the audit, the company was
“optimistic” that it could issue
the 2007 audited financial
statements by end-July 2008,
some 13 months after the year
ended.

Mr Sands also confirmed Tri-
bune Business’s exclusive reve-
lation that the main factor behind
the 2007 audit delay was that
KMPG was forced to manually
verify hundreds of point-of-sale
transactions, after no replace-
ment accounting systems were
implemented to replace those

Cash flow woes
confirmed by
City Markets

owner Winn-Dixie when its Tran-
sition Services Agreement was
ended.

Mr Sands explained that after
the BSL Holdings consortium
acquired the majority 78 per cent
stake in Bahamas Supermarkets
from Winn-Dixie for $54 million
in summer 2006, the US-based
grocery chain agreed to continue
providing support services for
one year under a Transition Ser-
vices Agreement.

In return, Bahamas Supermar-
kets would pay Winn-Dixie a flat
$1 million fee, plus a 5 per cent
mark-up on all products the US
grocer supplied it with. Deter-
mined to exit that agreement ear-
ly, Bahamas Supermarkets did
so in January 2007, producing
what Mr Sands said was an esti-
mated $400,000 saving.

That, though, may pale against
the extra audit costs incurred.
The Bahamas Supermarkets
chairman said the Board and its
operating partner, Barbados
Shipping & Trading, “moved
swiftly to separate Bahamas
Supermarkets’ operations from
dependence on Win-Dixie ser-
vices.

“New inventory control sys-
tems were installed, new prod-
ucts sourced to replace Winn-
Dixie’s private brands, and addi-
tional management recruited to
provide ongoing operational sup-
port.... Scanning was introduced
in all locations.”

Yet Mr Sands said “certain
crucial aspects of such a complex
transition in systems and process-
es were not effectively managed,
due to various factors”, although
he did not detail what the
“crucial aspects”, “systems
and processes”, and “factors”
were,

The result was that “the relia-
bility of the books and records
of the company was compro-
mised”, and KPMG had to rely
on manual verification as
Bahamas Supermarkets could
not provide it with computer-gen-
erated data for audit purposes.
Management was further “bur-
dened” by KPMG expanding its
audit procedures because of the
change in systems.

Following the departures of
Ken Burns and Bryan Knowles
as chief executive and chief finan-
cial officer respectively, and their
replacement by Stephen Boyle
and Vangy Rahming, the com-
pany has;hired outside account-
ing consultants. These persons

include Alison Treco from FT
Consulting, plus personnel from
Deloitte & Touche (Bahamas).

Bahamas Supermarkets has
also hired “a well-known super-
market advisor from the US. to
assist us in re-engineering and re-
tooling the company”.

As a result, Mr Sands said the
year-end 2008 audit would be
“more timely” in publication.

Investors will be eager to see
whether Bahamas Supermarkets
has remained profitable, given
that its BSL Holdings majority
owner is reliant on dividends
upstreamed from the company
to service the $5 million prefer-
ence shares and $24 million Roy-
al Bank of Canada debt it took
on to finance the acquisition.

Many observers in the super-
market and financial communi-
ties believe that BSL Holdings
massively overpaid for Winn-
Dixie’s 78 per cent stake, possibly
by as much as $15-$20 million.

In the run-up to the summer
2006 purchase, a number of
sources told Tribune Business
that Bahamas Supermarkets was
valued, at most, at $30-$35 mil-
lion, as the company did not own
any of its stores or head office.
They argued that the company’s
thinly-traded shares on the over-
the-counter market were over-
valued, and not a true reflection
of the company’s worth.

BSL Holdings’ investors
include Barbados Shipping &
Trading, Fidelity’s private equity
arm, the hotel industry pension
funds and well-known Bahami-
an wholesaler and businessman,
Franklyn Butler.

Sources close to BSL Holdings
said the $24 million Royal Bank
loan that helped to finance the
company’s purchase from Winn-
Dixie was not secured on
Bahamas Supermarkets or the
operating company’s assets.
Instead, it was pegged at the BSL
Holdings level, meaning it could
not move to take over the oper-
ating company.

The delay in publishing not just
the 2007 full-year audited finan-
cial statements, but also numbers
for the first three quarters in
2008, is understood to have cre-
ated problems for BSL Holdings
because it put the buyout group
technically in breach of one of
its banking covenants with Royal
Bank.

This particular covenant
required BSL Holdings to pro-
vide financial reporting updates
to Royal Bank within a certain
time period after each quarter
ended.

This it was unable to do
because of the issues at Bahamas

Supermarkets, leading Royal .
. Bank to work more closely with

sits lending counterparty.

THE TRIBUNE



. a as
Realtors told: ‘Use extreme caution’
in dealings with businessman

FROM page one

Real Estate Association’s
(BREA) president, to
numerous leading Bahami-
an realtors, warned “our
entire membership to be on
the lookout for Mr Rudy
King, also known = as
Rudolph Kermit King.
“The company he is using
or trading as is called Lord
and Christies, and Loving
Life Foundation Inc. Mem-
bers are advised to use
extreme caution with any
dealings with this person.”
Mr Wong told Tribune
Business: “I had gotten a
call from one of my mem-
bers that he [Mr King] was
attempting to lease a

names.

“T just wanted to give our
members a warning to be
careful and watch the dif-
ferent names this man
uses.”

Mr King could be reached
for comment before the July
10 Independence celebra-
tions. He is also said to use
the name Tropical Airways.

The colourful Mr King,
who is also Known as Dr
Rudolph King or Rudolph
King-Laroda, is no stranger
to controversy.

Chairman of the self-
styled non-profit King

2 DAYS

Humanitarian and Global
Organisation, Mr King was
last year indicted by a US
federal grand jury for
allegedly filing a false claim
with the Internal Revenue
Service (IRS) for a $2.7 mil-
lion tax refund.

The alleged offence,
which Mr King has denied,
took place in the northern
judicial district of Califor-
nia, and involved him -
using the name Klever Ros-
ales - presenting a tax
refund claim that he
allegedly knew was false.

The US attorney’s office

5 ONI Y July 11 &

for the northern district of
California alleged: “The
false claim asserted that
Rosales is the president of
Salute Greatness, Inc., a
company located in Beverly
Hills, California.

* “On or about July 26,
2007, Mr King, using the
name Klever Rosales, sub-
mitted a fraudulent interna-
tional money order payment
to the IRS in the amount of
$2.7 million.

“Mr King, again using the
name Klever Rosales, con-
tacted the Taxpayer Advo-
cate Service (TAS) and
requested an expedited
refund for $2.7 million. He
claimed the payment was
made in error and wanted
the funds returned as soon

as possible. On September
20, 2007, he faxed a fraudu-
lent claim to the TAS in the
amount of $2.7 million,
along with additional docu-
ments which appeared to be
fraudulent, in order to sub-
stantiate his false claim.”

Mr King was arrested in
Los Angeles on November
16, 2007, but was able to
post bail and return to the
Bahamas.

Fresh legal battles were
not far away, though, as Mr
King and his attorney,
Wayne Munroe, appealed
to the Court of Appeal in
May-June 2008 to set aside
a-2006 verdict by Supreme
Court Justice John Lyons
that declared him bankrupt.

That bankruptcy declara-

tion resulted from a legal
action brought by Cavalier
Construction, which alleged
that Mr King owed them an
$824,938 unpaid debt for
work done on his home.

Mr King had previously
been involved in a separate
2004 Nassau court case, in
which the American
Express credit card compa-
ny alleged he owed it a
$400,000 debt.

And in 2006, controversy
arose over an awards cere-
mony Dr King was staging
in Bermuda, after media in
that country claimed agents
for stars such as Will Smith
and Halle Berry denied
their clients knew about the
event or would be attend-
ing - contrary to his claims.

MVP YOUNG MEN:



YOUNG MEN respond to the call to rise
above their environment and follow their
dreams.



HE Men of Valour and Purpose (MVP)

. Officially launched its male mentorship

programme with a basketball and dominos tour-
nament.

The event was held on the Cynthia "Mother"
Pratt Park, in the heart of the Grove Community
last month. The atmosphere was charged with
positivity as young men competed in the slam
dunk competition, three on three basketball tour-
nament, and in the dominoes competition.

Trophies, phone cards and gifts were awarded
to the winners and runners-up. Musical artists
were invited to bring some flavour, and free hot-
dogs and hamburgers were heartily welcomed.

Elder Reno Brennen addressed the young men,

highlighting the pitfalls and mistakes of his life.



Elder Brennen, a former drug addict, is now using
his testimony to steer young men in a positive
direction. He encouraged the young men to be
dreamers and to rise above the difficulties of their
environment.

The response from the young men was tremen-.
dous and they spoke of the need for more events

of this sort..

MVP is a male mentorship programme that
deals with character development. It targets teens
and young men (ages 13-21) to assist in equipping
them to be good citizens of the Bahamas. This
movement exists to preserve a generation of qual-
ity Bahamian men.

MVP is led by a group of vibrant young men:

e Dave Newbold - director

e Akari Murray - president



MVP BALL 5: Three on three basket-
ball winners.



MVP EXECUTIVE
BOARD:
Members of the
Men of Valour

(MVP) executive
board.

e Jamaal Coleby - vice president

e Gregory Smith - secretary

e Jermaine Wallace - assistant secretary
e Deno Cartwright - treasurer

e Jamaal Knowles - assistant treasurer
¢ Kevin Rolle - chaplain

The programme will continue with weekly
meetings at the Yellow Elder Primary School to
assist with positive male mentorship. The group
meets every Thursday from 6pm to 8pm.

' Several corporate and private sponsors assisted
in making the dream of MVP a reality. They
include: Bahamas Against Crime, headed by Rev
Dr C B Moss: National Student Christian

Can't Get Right!




A movie was made
a few years ago

by the name of “Life”,

which stared _- Eddie
Murphy, Martin Lawrence and a host
of other actors that were prison
inmates. In this movie was also a
young, deaf and dumb inmate who was
known as “Can't Get Right”. This
young man had some amazing talents
as a baseball player; his talents afford-
ed him the opportunity of an early
release from prison to play baseball.

Life! What does it mean to us as a
people who claim to be a Christian
nation, but yet refuses to or just 'Can't
Get Right'?

No, in most cases we choose not to
get it right by blatantly disobeying
God's word. In studying the word of
God I've discovered that there is a
great spiritual parallel between the city
of Corinth and the Bahamas.

Corinth was a wicked, wealthy, com-
mercial centre that was known for its
cosmopolitan culture and luxurious
temples. Likewise, despite all the talks
about the Bahamas being a Christian
nation, nothing could be farther from
the truth. The Bahamas is also a
wicked, wealthy, commercial centre
that is bent on culture; our leaders
(political, religious and civic) spare no
expense in building their luxurious

temples of worship, and palaces to live -

PASTOR
MATTHEW




We do a good job in displaying our
religious Christianity on Sundays or at
various church events and in front of
the crowd, but at the end of the day we
aren't right.

I'm wondering if we, as a people, are
aware of how we've allowed the law of
deterioration to eat away the very core
values of this country; whereas integri-
ty, justice and respect for each other is
a thing of the past.

There was a time throughout the
length and breadth of the Bahamas that
a man's word was as good as gold;
today, not only are the words of some
leaders worthless, but also their signa-
tures. What's sad about all of this is
that our people seem to enjoy and wel-
come this sort of character defect in our

leadership pool straight across the

board.

1. The politicians that are filled with
empty promises and can tell the best
lies are often the ones that the people
choose to represent them.



2. The religious leaders that are con-
stantly lying in God's name and operat-
ing with their ulterior motives are often
the ones that the people look up too
and seek to emulate.

3. The business man that is known to
be crooked in his dealings - and that
may or may not have a close affiliation
with either of the above mentioned -
will always be the community's first
choice to do business with, rather than
an honest businessman who is going to
ask questions.

What does that say about us as a peo-
ple? It literally says that we are a cor-
rupt and wicked people that hide under
the umbrella of Christianity and some
other religions.

The thought and the process of get-
ting things right is a painful one that
would require us to change our wicked
ways and begin to walk in love and
operate in integrity. This can only hap-
pen as a result of a personal encounter
with and submission to. the word of
Yahweh and the teachings of His Son,
Yeshuwa Messiah.

Let's look at a corrupt political/reli-
gious leader who had a life changing
encounter with Yeshuwa Messiah.

Luke 19:5 And when Jesus came to
the place, He looked up and saw him,
and said unto him, Zaccheus, make
haste, and come down: for today I must

abide at thy house. ;
Vs 8: And Zaccheus stood, and said
unto the Lord; Behold, Lord the half of
my goods I give to the poor; and if I
have taken any thing from any man by
false accusation, I restore him fourfold.

One encounter with the Lord can
revolutionize the worst of the worst; it
can also cause a man to humble himself
and do the right thing. With this in
mind, and all the negatives we're expe-
riencing as a nation, it's only fair to ask
the question; How many of our leaders
(especially religious and political) have
truly had an encounter with the Lord?

The answer to that question is rather
simple - not many of them.

For if they did, restoration would be
the order of the day throughout. the
Bahamas instead of corruption and
wickedness.

faith.

In a country reportedly plagued by
terrorism, daily bombings and constant
events of unrest, the travellers to the
Feast of Pentecost Kingdom Summit
2008, walked peacefully throughout the
streets of Israel untouched by any acts
of violence or hostility.

Paving a way of peace between Jew
and Gentile, Dr. Munroe led a team
comprised of some 30 Bahamians,
including pastors and church leaders
from Nassau; Jamaicans, Americans,
Europeans, Canadians, and other
nationalities, on a nine-day journey last
month to experience the virtue of Israel
that is not often expressed by the inter-
national media.

Even near to the time when many
Jews and residents of Israel are headed
into Tisha B'av in July and August,
which is described as a time of mourn-
ing because of the destruction of the
temple of Jerusalem, Mayor Katz was
able to share with Dr Munroe and the
team his hope of the nation being
rebuilt. “I hope to have in my future
peace between Israel and Lebanon,"
Mayor Katz said, "peace for the next
generation of my children, the children
of Metula, and the generation of the
children of Lebanon”.

Dr Munroe and summit attendees
visited Metula, the city directly on the
Lebanese border, on their fourth day of
travel around Israel. In his meeting

with Mayor Katz, Dr Munroe
expressed his sentiments about the
region and the ongoing Israeli crisis.
“For the past 23 years we have been
bringing groups to Israel. We brought
up to 850 in one group at a time, but we
haven't been here for about five years.
That is when some of the difficulties
happened here in Israel, and the people
became very afraid to travel,” Dr
Munroe said.

“This place (Metula) I think is an
important place for us because this is
the northern most part, and it is also
the part that is the most sensitive.
Standing in a spot where we can see
both sides of Lebanon and Israel in the
middle is the greatest testimony
because in the midst of what you call
enemies, there is safety.”

Mayor Katz told Dr Munroe that
positive community growth in Israel
would continue because he felt that his
government could not continue to put
money into tanks and airplanes, but
would instead invest in the well-being
of the Israeli people.

“I am deeply moved and pleased that



‘you, Dr Munroe, and Dr Roni Wexler

defied the image painted by the media
throughout the West and come to this
land that belongs to ali people of faith
to encourage us as a people. My gov-

From Tel Aviv to Nazareth, and from

In I Corinthians 12:12 we read that,
the body is a unit, though all its parts
are many, they form one body (NIV).

service in the Jordan River, Masada,
the Dead Sea, Sea of Galilee, the home
town of Apostle Peter, James and John
- Capernaum, and the assumed place of
the empty tomb of Jesus Christ.

Apostle Leon Wallace, senior pastor
of the Voice of Deliverance Disciple
Centre Temple, who was a first-time
visitor to Israel, described his time on
the Sea of Galilee as "a dream come
true".

“It was almost unbelievable. It was a
dream come true. My entire trip with
Dr Myles Munroe and the Feast of
Pentecost to Israel was very spirit-filled
and enlightening. I certainly enjoyed
myself to the utmost. Every pastor in
the Bahamas should make it a necessi-
ty to visit this land as it makes your
message come alive,” he said.

Pastor Arlington
Christian Discipleship Ministries called
the trip “life-transforming” and was
thankful to Dr Munroe for making it
possible. “I will never be the same and
look forward to returning next year
with all the leaders I can bring,” Pastor
Rahming said.

During the visit, individuals were
able to see former bunkers and hide-
outs of the Hezbollah. In the midst of
the peace and joy described by many
team members, a solemn time experi-
enced was during the visit to the memo-
rial for the soldiers killed by an explo-

On the eighth day of the tour the trip
culminated with a celebration of
Shavuot, the Feast of Pentecost. Team
members visited the fields of Judea to
pick wheat to bring back to the Temple
Mount. They shared in a time of
singing and remembrance in a well-
known tradition of the historic faith.
While some members, including
Bahamians, travelled back home after
the ninth day of the Holy Land experi-

Jerusalem. Bahamian traveller Nicole

GOD'S



W HILE “1. was

writing this
passage Oy you are reading
today I would have been sitting
in the waiting room of the
Princes Margaret Hospital. I
was sitting there waiting on
word about my brother who
was supposed to have a second
surgery.

When one of the nurses came out I
was fearful of the news because of what
they might have been told, however it
was discovered that my brother was too
weak to under go the procedure.

He was admitted eventually. But while
sitting there I remembered the last time I
sat in the same place waiting while he was
in theatre. I reflected on the time he had
the first operation; when I asked myself
the question; "where does your help
come from?”

That question was answered by the
Psalmist, so again I looked to the Psalms
for answers, this time it was Psalms 139.

I don't know about you, but when I am
having a difficult day or having a rocky
start to my day or when I'm wondering
where God's presence is in my life, I turn
to the Psalms. When I want to be com-
forted, I open up the Psalms. After all,
this collection of writings reminds us that
we are God's children, and Psalm 139
tells us that we are fearfully and wonder-
fully made.

But on Tuesday I looked at Psalm 139
through a different lens. Rather than lis-
tening for what the Psalm had to say
about us, I search for what it says about
God and how God relates to us. I would
like for us to look at three distinct ways
God relates to us:

e God knows us intimately

° God created us with a purpose

e God never leaves us.

All three are given freely out of love
and generosity, in other words, we did
nothing to encourage them and we can do
nothing to deserve them. God knows us
intimately, God created us with a pur-
pose, and God never leaves us - all by
God's own initiative. So let's look at
these in turn.

1. First, God knows us intimately -
knows us better than a parent, a spouse,
and even ourselves. For emphasis, the
word “know” is used seven times in this
Psalm. God knows our words before they
are on our tongues; he knows all our
thoughts and actions. Now; is itjust me or
is that a bit unsettling?

If God knows us that well, that means

BY CLEMENT

Â¥ oS TY PRY
Rs iwi
JOTLIN,



God knows all the bad stuff, too. All the
stuff we're not proud of. I'm not sure if I
want to be that honest with God.

The Psalmist writes, “God hems us in,
behind and before.” The word “hem” can
mean not only protect, but it-can also
mean enclose or confine. Is that what

God is doing here: confining us?
Watching our every move in order to
pounce if we make a wrong turn?

God hems us in, in order to shelter and
protect-us. Even though God knows all
our weaknesses and sin, he accepts us and
welcomes us into his family. God knows
all the things we hide and all the stuff we
feel guilty about; even still, he loves us.

God's knowledge is, therefore, not a
threat, but a comfort. The Psalmist recog-



God hems us in, in
order to shelter and
protect us.



nizes how magnificent God's intimacy is.

' He writes, “God's knowledge is too won-

derful for me.”

God knows our secret fears, our strug- .

gles, and our needs. He knows our great-
est joys, our passions and our laughter.
His knowledge is so expansive that we
cannot understand it. But let us rejoice in
this knowledge rather than run from it.
Let us celebrate God's intimacy. After all,
the King of the universe has chosen to be
in relationship with us!

2. The second distinctive feature we see
about God is: God created us with a pur-
pose.

The Psalmist writes, “You knit me
together in my mother's womb.” In the
beginning, God created us, forming our
inward parts. Joy of joys - we are not a
random accident of biology: the colliding
of cells in the universe. We are the work
and will of the benevolent Creator, who
put care into each stitch. We were lov-
ingly made...and made with intention. We
are not left alone to drift tiroueh life aim-
lessly.

The Pealmist writes, “All tig sais






ordained for me were written in your
book.” Again, this part of the Psalm may
make us tense up a little. Ordained? The
thought of someone else being in control
of our lives frighteiis us. It sure scares
me...I'm the one who never liked group |
projects because I had to trust others to
do part of the work. I'm the one who
schedules out every hour of his day and
plans every meal for the week. But when

ability to stop fretting
it comes to God, we have to relearn how about life and just appre-
to trust.

His plan for our lives existed way ciate his Kj Nn g 4
before we did. For me, I confess, this is
not so easy. I am constantly worrying:
God, am I making the right decision, will
my brother get better, will my children
turn out OK as adults, and will I be able
to pay all of my bills on time?

Maybe you're asking some similar
questions: why is my marriage so rocky
right now? Where should my children go
to school? Am [ on the right path, God?
It's hard to find peace about these issues,
and trust God's judgment and timing, but
God communicates with us through many
means, for instance in visions and
through Scripture.

I find that when I am drifting off track
or am just unsure as to the next step,
someone usually reminds me of the pres-
ence of God in my life and in the world.
They communicate God's love and reas-
surance as I make decisions.

There is a friend of mine, Karen Rolle,
whenever I speak with her Iam ee
of the power of God's presence in
world and how, if we stick with God, te
never abandons us. She is always positive
and has an encouraging word. Jesus had
his twelve closest friends; the question we
need to ask ourselves is “who do we turn
to when we need. a reminder of God's
love and faithfulness?

Therefore, the Psalmist celebrates
God's purpose for human life. He con-
cludes that God's. foreknowledge is not
intimidating - but an amazing comfort
because of God's guiding hand.

The Psalmist writes, “How weighty (or
in other translations, how precious) to me
are your thoughts, O God! How vast the
sum of them! I try to count them, they are
more than the sand.”

The Psalmist is in awe of the idea that
God can know and care for and guide
every person so intimately. We must be
able to hear how the Psalmist is enjoying
this beautiful mystery.

I admire the Psalmist's ability to stop
fretting about life and just appreciate his
King. He says, “Wonderful are your
works; that I know very well.” Not only
does God know the Psalmist intimately,
but it seems the Psalmist also knows the
Lord. He has learned of God's mighty
acts and praises him for all of creation.
‘isHowoften do we ponder the-niysteries
of our God? How often do we just sit
with a Psalm and let it seep in? How often:



admire the Psaimist’s



do we write in our day planner: sit in won-
der and awe at God's majesty? Not often.

3. Fortunately for most of us, God is
not discouraged because the third rela-
tional characteristic is God's continual
presence. God is always with us, wanting
us to get to know him.

But wait, the caption in my Bible reads,
“The Inescapable God.” Do I always
want to spend all my time with God, even
when I fall short of his expectations? The
Psalmist writes, “Where can I go from
your spirit? Where can I flee from your
presence?”

We usually hear the word “flee” when
a criminal is fleeing the crime scene or
when an army is fleeing their enemy.
Sometimes I feel like a criminal fleeing
the scene - I think, “If I hide my sin,
maybe God won't see it.”
~ But God isn't some police force waiting
to attack. And he isn't an angry tyrant
handing down sentences from the sky.
Our Lord is the God of the Bible, the
God who created us and redeemed us out
of love. This is the God who sacrificed his
only Son for our sake. This is the God
who wants to be in relationship with us
despite our sin.

Well, in that case, we should not want

o flee. I want to find myself next to this
just and merciful God, the God who is
both lowly Servant and powerful King:
The God who reigns on high in majesty
and who died a shameful death on a
cross; This is our God, the God who is
always with us.

So when I left the hospital that day I
was sure that the God who knows every-
thing and is everywhere would look after
my bother - who was baptized into Christ,
who was altar boy, and who is humble and
giving and loving - he will be remembered
by God and He will decide what happens
to him.

When my brother was admitted to the
hospital again, I stood by his bed trying to
encourage him to pray, the only pray that
came to me was the “Our Father” prayer.
This _prayer sums up for us;why we need
to look to this majestic God - because this
all knowing God will take care of us.

lm BRENT DEAN
Tribune Staff Reporter
bdean@tribunemedia.net

A YOUNG man was stabbed
..to. death.on_the eve of Indepen-
dence Day in Farmers Cay,
Exuma during.a verbal dispute
with another man reportedly
over a woman.

Antonius Brennen was
stabbed in the chest and the
face sometime around 10.30pm
on Wednesday, according to
Acting Assistant Commissioner
Hulan Hanna.

He and another man were
reportedly engaged in the alter-
cation when the murder
occurred. Police were uncertain |
of the cause of the row yester-
day.

However, sources on Farm-
ers Cay told The Tribune yes-

terday that Mr Brennen and his
assailant were fighting after a
female, who was known to the
deceased, was accosted by a
man. The altercation was said to
have taken place at her resi-
dence.

Both men involved in the row.
— which happened in an area
residents describe as “the Vil-
lage” — are reportedly from
Nassau, but lived at Farmers
Cay while they worked at devel-
opments on surrounding cays.

Roosevelt Nixon, owner of
the Farmers Cay Yacht Club
and Marina, who was in church
on the cay when the incident
happened, told The Tribune
that the residents of the island
would like to see the construc-
tion workers from Nassau, who

Renewal workers were termi-
nated last week on Grand
Bahama.

THE group of women —
employed with Urban Renew-
al since its inception in 2005 —
claim that they have been
replaced by FNM supporters.

While attending a PLP press
conference on Monday, The
Tribune was approached by
several of the women who
wanted to express their con-
cern about their abrupt dis-
missal.

Melvina Albury said. that
she was among the 42 persons
originally employed with
Urban Renewal under the
PLP government.

She said they received a ver-
bal termination notice last
Monday from a senior Social
Services officer.

The Tribune attempted to
reach the officer on Wednes-
day by telephone for com-
ment, but was told that he was
not in office at the time.

He did not return our calls
up to press time.

Ms Albury said that they
are still awaiting official let-
ters of termination from the

Beryl Bridgewater claims
that they have been replaced
by more than 70 FNM “gen-

heartened by the situation.

“At this moment I feel sad.
I really think it is political

three years and now they fire
us and replace us with FNM

Corruption report on Turks and Caicos

WHILE reporting the findings of a House
of Commons foreign affairs committee of a
“palpable climate of fear” in need of investi-
gation in the Turks and Caicos Islands, The
Sunday Telegraph of London also observed
that “thanks to the tourist business, the econ-
omy’s growth rate (in the Turks-Caicos) since
2000 has been one of the highest in the
world.”

“The islands,” said The Sunday Telegraph,
“have become one of the most glamorous
destinations in the Caribbean.” World-class
hotels, reported the London newspaper, have
proliferated and “most tourists are from
Canada and the United States, but the islands
are also popular with British holidaymak-
ers.”

It has been a long time since such a glow-
ing report has been written about the
Bahamas. ;

However, the Turks and Caicos with its
35,000 inhabitants, has its problems, which if
reports are to be believed, could do a great
deal of damage to its international image.

' According to The Telegraph, “behind the
sleek image, the Commons foreign affairs
committee discovered an alarming picture
akin to a Graham Greene novel.”

Unlike the Bahamas, the Turks and
Caicos, still.a British overseas territory under

Foreign Office supervision,.is subject to inves-

tigation for any hint of corruption. One can
imagine the field day such a committee could
have had in the Bahamas over the past 35
years if these islands still had colonial sta-
tus. The UK committee made its discovery
when it was carrying out a routine survey of
Britain’s 14 remaining overseas territories.
During the inquiry the British MPs received
more than 50 letters from islanders com-
plaining of “rampant” corruption in the gov-
ernment, political interference with the judi-
ciary and the suppression of freedom of
speech.

The House of Commons Foreign Affairs
Committee has urged officials to call an
inquiry into the administration of the islands.

“The MPs said they were given a DVD ofa
meeting of Premier Michael Misick’s party
when he denounced the opposition as “trai-
tors”. Maybe we should send them a Hansard
transcript of the House of Assembly when
former MP Bradley Roberts denounced The
Tribune publisher as a terrorist likening her
writings to a “terrorist throwing a bomb into
the first crowd of persons they see.” Or on the

occasion when Prime Minister Hubert Ingra-
ham (in the days when he was still in the
Opposition) was accused of treason by the
Pindling government alleging that he had
given information to a U.S. agency about
drug dealers who came and went in these
islands seemingly with a great deal of free-
dom. It appeared that the document on which
the allegation was based might have been a
forgery.

When the UK MPs visited the Turks and
Caicos to investigate the allegations, their
report said that “alarmingly for a British
overseas territory, many individuals expressed
great concern about being seen to be talking
to British parliamentarians, and some indi-
viduals declined to meet us altogether for
this reason.”

It urged the British government to estab-
lish a commission of inquiry with full pro-
tection for witnesses who come forward.

"We witnessed this climate of fear for our-
selves when we visited the Turks and Caicos
Islands," the report said. ;

According to the Associated Press, “many
of the claims centred on Turks and Caicos
Premier Michael Misick, who is alleged to
have built up a multimillion dollar fortune
since he was elected in 2003.” When elected,
Mr Misick declared assets of only $50,000.

“Tourism is the islands' main industry,”
reported the AP, “and the economy has
grown rapidly since 2000. The legislators said
they had received claims that Premier Misick
and other government ministers had enriched
themselves by selling off government-owned
land to property developers.”

Mr Misick has denied corruption and said
the House of Commons Foreign Affairs
Committee had presented an “unbalanced
view” of his government. He claimed that
the report relied “primarily on allegations
made by political operatives of the PDM
(Opposition party) whose performance con-

tinues to demonstrate that their agenda is -

largely influenced and driven by an unhealthy
desire for power and selfish ambition,” Mr
Misick said.

The fact-finding UK mission condemned
the failure of the Foreign Office or the
island’s governor, Richard Tauwhare, to take
acuion.

In reply a Foreign Office minister has
undertaken to give “each recommendation
the fullest consideration ... and respond to
the committee in due course.”



Let us start

respecting

the flag of
the Bahamas

EDITOR, The Tribune.

IN the past few weeks we
saw a group of nationals who
predominantly are illegally in

The Bahamas hold a tradition’
held in their country, but this ~

time it was a very demonstrative
exercise of flying of their nation-
al flag.

July 4th, came and we saw
numerous Vehicles driving
around flying the stars and
stripes.

Our Independence Day is
coming soon and we are already
seeing hundreds flying our
majestic tricolour on their vehi-
cles and displayed and flying
over various buildings.

A Talk Show host this past
week suggested and encouraged
non-Bahamians to fly their flag
of their nations and scolded
callers who said that flags other
than the flag of the Bahamas
were inappropriate.

There is actually an official
flag protocol laid out in two
conventions which governs how
a flag should be respected,
flown and used in representa-
tions.

Only Ambassadors, High
Commissioners; Consul Gener-
als and Honorary Consuls may
fly the flag of a country other
than the host country where
they reside — in the case of
Honorary Consuls they may

only fly the flag of the country ~

they represent when they are
travelling on ‘official busi-
ness’— at no other time may a
foreign flag be flown so what



BOM BEIe

enems@ruielncancclen esl



we witnessed on flag day by the
Haitian community was totally
irregular and any other day
when a group of nationals fly
their flag is actually illegal
unless of course it is within the
grounds of an Embassy or a res-
idence of an Ambassador, High
Commissioner, Consul General
or Honorary Consul as that
property is accepted as sover-
eign territory of that nation.

Regrettably over time hotels
have for example flown the
flags we see outside the Cable
Beach Hotels foreign flags but
really the flying of those flags is
illegal whether or not they have
guests from those countries or
have branches of their hotels in
those countries.

A flag represents a nation
and exclusively a person who
in a foreign country represents
that country — there is no
deviance and no second think-
ing. I was surprised that Nation-
al Security was encouraging
Bahamians overseas to fly the
Bahamian flag on July 10th —
they are totally wrong. At sports
events our athletes actually mis-
use our sovereign flag in the
way they drape it over them-
selves and permit the flag to be
dragged on the ground—that is
a no-no, it is in fact a serious
act of disrespect to the flag.

The flying of a tattered flag
— a flag that faded is also dis-
respectful. Here we see that all
over and no one corrects it.

Flags are required by these
conventions to be of the torrect
colours also. Editor, hoping that
from these points we will start
to respect the Bahamian flag —
go back to the correctness of
the Protocol and ensure that it
is kept. ;

I notice that certain churches
now exhibit flags — that is total-
ly incorrect, the sole flag that
may be exhibited is that of our
Bahamas unless the Head of
State, an Ambassador, High
Commissioner, a Consul Gen-
eral or an Honorary Consul is
present then you may exhibit
the flag of the Nation the per-
sonality represents. In practice
only the Bahamas flag should
be seen. Also for example the
Bahamian National Anthem
there is only one version and
not like we hear when the US
National Anthem is sung we
rarely hear one version but per-
sons singing The Bahamas
Anthem may not descant, har-
monise or change the official
melody of the anthem — of
course we hear this all the time
and Cable TV channel air a
wrong version of the National
Anthem daily when they open
their broadcasting seemingly
impervious to knowing right
from wrong possibly Dr Wis-
dom will change that?

Wilchcombe’s tirade unbelievable!

EDITOR, The Tribune.

I COULD not believe the
tirade spewing from Mr Obie Wil-
chombe as he castigated the Min-
ister of Tourism.

I think the opposition needs a
gentle reminder that you should
only compare apples with apples.

When Obie became Minister
of Tourism there were some
things that he inherited amongst
which the rich legacy left by Mr
Vincent Vanderpool Wallace, the
former Director General.

There were also items over
which the PLP had no contro:

mortgage debacle spreading like
triffords throughout the world.
Our tourism product was buoyant
due, in part, to all of this.

It seems that to whom much is
given much is required; whenever
the present Government assumes
power there is usually some cata-
strophe to hound it, Hurricane
Andrew springs to mind.

I am not sure that the Opposi-
tion is aware that not all Bahami-
ans suffer from short or conve-
nient memory lapses — neither
do we all suffer from ignorance! I

call on them to be better behaved
and stop insulting the intelligence
of the electorate.

With all my mixed Irish and
Scottish ancestry, if it were I Obie
was berating, I might have been
inclined to give him something
outside the halls!

Fashion designer Peter






Nygard receives lifetime
achievement award

CELEBRATED fashion
designer and philanthropist Peter
Nygard received a lifetime
achievement award for his con-
tribution to the country.

The award was presented at a
fashion show held during the 12th
annual Bahamas Fashion Week.

During the show, at the Rain-
forest Theatre at the Whyndam
Crystal Palace Resort, Mr Nygard
was heralded as an inspiration to
emerging designers by Kevin
Strakan, owner of Fifth Avenue
Marketing and Modeling Agency
and organiser of the event.

"This particular event certainly
touches my heart, this place
touches my heart," said Mr
Nygard, a permanent resident in
the Bahamas for the past 25 years.

"It's nice to support the fashion

Fourth CARICOM/Spain Summit
taking place in Madrid today

THE fourth CARICOM/Spain
Summit takes place at the Mon-
cloa Palace in Madrid today.

It is being held against the
backdrop of the celebration of
CARICOM Day at the World’s
Fair in Zaragoza, Spain.

CARICOM chairman Baldwin
Spencer, prime minister of
Antigua and Barbuda and Jose
Luis Zapatero, the prime minister
of Spain, will jointly preside over
the summit, to be held at the

palace housing the offices of the .

Spanish prime minister.

The fourth summit follows the
first in Port of Spain, Trinidad
and Tobago in 1999 and the oth-
er two in Madrid in 2002 and
2006.

Spain has emerged as the major
destination for CARICOM’s
exports to Europe, accounting for
30 per cent of the export trade in
2006, while Spain for its part is
the main European exporter to
the region with exports account-
ing for 20 per cent of the Euro-
pean total in 2006.

Spain has indicated a strong
interest in becoming a member
of the Caribbean Development
Bank (CDB) and in making a

contribution to the CARICOM
Development Fund.

Negotiations are underway in
respect of a proposed Spanish
contribution to the Special Devel-
opment Fund of the CDB.

The Caribbean heads of gov-
ernment will seek to bring their
Spanish counterpart up to date
with respect to: the CARICOM
Single Market and Economy;
heavily indebted emerging mar-
ket countries, of which seven of
the top 10 are CARICOM mem-
ber states; the Caribbean Sea Ini-
tiative which seeks to have the
Caribbean Sea internationally
recognised as a special area in the
context of sustainable develop-
ment; and trade and investment
in the region.

Spain is interested in discussing
the Alliance of Civilisations which
was established in 2005 by Spain
and Turkey to create global polit-
ical space to combat a lack of
mutual understanding and com-
munication between the western
world and the Arab-Islamic
world. A conference on this ini-
tiative was held in Saint Lucia in
2006.

COB's SIS initiative
is applauded by
environmentalist

@ By CAPUCINE DAYEN

THE College of the
Bahamas’ Small Island Sustain-
ability Programme, created in
response to the many environ-
mental issues facing the world
today, is the first of its kind any-
where.

Backed by a $10 million
donation by the Freedom Foun-
dation and the allocation of 10
acres of land by the Bahamian
government, it demonstrates
that COB has taken a proactive
stance in light of the growing
global concern about proper
management of natural
resources.

"We need to find solutions to
the complex challenges we face
as a small island developing

state," explained Janyne Hod- |

der, president of the college.
"To improve the quality of life,
to create sustainable prosperity:
we need problem solvers,
researchers, innovators, inven-
tors, designers, policy makers,
writers, developers and entre-
preneurs. The programme will
produce such change agents."

"This is.a unique opportunity
for countries like the Bahamas
to focus on issues that affect us
specifically," said Eric Carey,
executive director of the
Bahamas National Trust.

"We have 25 national parks,
spanning 700,000 acres of land
in our country. Programmes
such as SIS will bring more
awareness to the importance of
these types of natural
resources."

Mr Carey also explained that

“We need to find

face as a small

Janyne Hodder

the programme is significant
from an economic perspective,

as it presents many opportuni- .

ties in areas such as agriculture
and ecotourism.

“Persons with large proper-
ties on the family islands will
now have an opportunity to
develop those properties as eco-
lodges and other types of
ecofriendly projects."

He added that his organisa-
tion, with funding provided by
the European Union, is working
on an ecotourism project in
Andros.

“We will be looking to devel-
op linkages with COB to assist
us to develop our programmes.”

Many environmentalists, like
Eleanor Philips, director of the
Nature Conservancy, have
expressed their delight over the
donation by the Freedom Foun-
dation.

"It is a fantastic initiative and
I'd like to commend the college
for bringing this to the Bahami-
an people," she said.

Jinny McKinney, founder of
Cans 4 Kids, said: "This is an
excellent idea and I believe that
it is a wonderful opportunity for
our country.

“As long as the college focus-
es its attention on finding solu-
tions that are applicable to us —
bearing in mind mind-set, belief
systems and ways of operation —

The SIS undergraduate pro-

tems management and one in

ning.

The other we will be bache-
lor of arts degrees: one in eco-

one in policy studies.

The new complex will include
a main building with conference

an animal science Jab, and ento-

lab, a food chemistry lab, a food

A farm house, a green house
and a chemical storage facility
will also be introduced.

Graduates of the programme
will be able to pursue careers

THE elegant and sophisti-

Ball was the setting for the
presentation of the Sir Lyn-
den Pindling Foundation’s
gift of $300,000 to The Col-
lege of The Bahamas. This
sum is the result of fund
raising started seven years
ago, and is allocated to sup-
port the Harry C Moore
Library at The College of
The Bahamas. Benefactors
to the Lyford Cay Founda-
tion, College faculty and
staff and other loyal donors
have generously supported
the Library project over the
years and the Sir Lynden
Pindling Foundation joins
this donor group with this
contribution. A spokesman
said the College was delight-
ed to be the prime benefi-

ciary ‘of the’ foundation’ i

generosity aimed at honour-
ing Sir Lynden and support-
ing the vision to create the
University of The Bahamas,
a vision he wholeheartedly
supported.

Monique Pindling-John-

Sir Lynden Pindling Foun-
dation, said, “We at the
foundation are very pleased
to make this donation to
The College and are espe-

to President Hodder that we

would give $300,000 this

year and now we are deter-
mined to raise another

¢ How important are the literary arts to national
development?

What should be the role of the writer in
society?

What is the state of writing in The Bahamas
today?

What level of support is there for Bahamian
writing and publications and how can we gen-

Claim clause
in EPA ‘offends
constitution’

@ By ALISON LOWE
Tribune Staff Reporter
alowe@tribunemedia.net

ATTORNEYS have
claimed that a certain clause
in the Economic Partnership
Agreement the Bahamas is
set to-sign with Europe
“clearly offends the constitu-
tion.”

Paul Moss and Fayne

Thompson, attorneys and

EPA critics, claim there are
legal precedents that show
that a certain provision of the
agreement cannot be enacted
without a referendum being
put to the Bahamian people.

He claimed on Tuesday that
for this reason the Bahamian
constitution will “save” the
Bahamas from the EPA by
forcing the government to
offer citizens the right to vote
on the trade agreement when
it has otherwise indicated that
it does not intend to do so.

Article 227 of the EPA calls
for the institution of a “joint
CARIFORUM-EC council”
which shall “supervise the
implementation” of the EPA.

The council will be formed
of members of the Council of
the European Union, of the
European commission and
representatives of CARIFO-
RUM states.

The council “shall have the
power to take decisions in
respect of all matters covered
by this agreement. The deci-
sions taken shall be binding
on the parties and the signa-
tory CARIFORUM states,”

Mr Moss claimed that gov-

-ernment’s intention to sign

the agreement in light of this



“It runs counter to our
Constitution where our courts
have inherent jurisdiction.”



_ Attorney Paul Moss on government’s
intention to sign the agreement in light of

provision amounts to an
unconstitutional “attempted
usurpation of (the) authori-
ty” of the Bahamian courts.

“Tt runs counter to our
Constitution where our courts
have inherent jurisdiction,”
he told The Tribune.

Mr Moss and his colleague
Mr Thompson both represent
Bahamians Agitating for a
Referendum on Free Trade
(BARF), an organisation
which was originally formed
in opposition to the Free
Trade Agreement of the
Americas, and later opposed
CARICOM’s Common Sin-
gle Market and Economy
before turning to the EPA.

They have both called for
government to allow a refer-
endum on the EPA but Min-
ister of State for Finance
Zhivargo Laing has previous-
ly indicated that government
is not disposed to such an
option at this stage.

Mr Thompson was a panel-
list at a town meeting on the
EPA held on Tuesday
evening by the Bahamas
Association of Compliance
Officers — with Mr Laing and
Chamber of Commerce trade
consultant, Hank Ferguson —
while Mr Moss spoke when
he stood to ask a question of
the panellists after their pre-
sentations.

Mr Thompson said that a
Jamaican case sets a prece-
dent for the process the
Bahamas would have to fol-
low if it wanted to institute
the agreement given the pro-
vision for the formation of the
decision-making council.

In 2004 the Privy Council
ruled that any attempt by the
Jamaican government to
switch its final court of appeal
from the Privy Council to the

Article 227 on EPA

Caribbean Court of Justice

could only be done if
Jamaican citizens chose to do
so in a referendum as it would
otherwise be unconstitutional.

According to the two attor-
neys, the case reflects the
challenge thet would face the
Bahamas if it goes ahead with
signing the EPA.

“Whenever ihe government
comes to bring this agreement
to parliament (to enact the
enabling legislation) it must
be challenged on the basis

‘that our constitution provides

that the Supreme Court of the
Bahamas has inherent juris-
diction to deal with any mat-
ter touching and concerning
members of the Bahamian
public or those who are in
this jurisdiction,” said Mr
Moss.

“The government may have
its way on signing on to this
‘always delayed’ agreement,
but the Bahamian people with
have the final say,” he
claimed.

Mr Laing responded by say-
ing that any agreement signed
will have to be ratified by par-
liament and would be subject
to judicial review in the
Bahamas.

However, he appeared to
object to Mr Moss and
Thompson’s position when he
stated that the arrangement
insofar as the role of the joint
council acting as an ultimate
arbiter of EPA-related trade
is “how these things generally
work.”

“In the World Trade
Organisation, that is how it
works,” he said, noting the
case involving a complaint to
the WTO against the United
States by Antigua and Barbu-
da over the U.S’ ban on
online-gambling.

Exuma a modern
docking facility and
trans-shipment —

@ By GEORGE A SMITH
Former MP and
Cabinet minister

Bes has over the
years evolved as one

of the most important centres
in all the Family Islands, behind
only Grand Bahama and Aba-
co. But quite obviously — espe-
cially since the development at
Emerald Bay — it is destined to
be second only to New Provi-
dence.

Mindful of this vision, séri-
ous thought, attention, and
planning must now be given to
enhancing every facility in Exu-
ma that can play an important
part in its orderly development.
Most grievously needed in that
regard is a modern docking
facility, which would accommo-
date increased cargo shipping
requirements, and which sensi-
bly ought to be located away
from George Town with its pre-
dominantly touristic outlook
and activities.

New Providence is experi-
encing problems because of the
present location of its docking
facilities and the authorities are
seeking a solution. It would be
wise to use foresight for Exu-
ma. In planning a modern
docking facility for Exuma, con-
sideration should be given to
the following facts:

e It should be constructed at a
location that could be used as a
trans-shipment point to all of
the islands to the south i.e.
Ragged Island, Long Island,
Acklins, Crooked Island, Long
Cay, Mayaguana, Inagua and

possibly the Turks and Caicos -

Islands

e It should be located at a
point that would not necessi-
tate vessels having to enter Exu-
ma Sound in bad weather and
from the Sound into Elizabeth
Harbour

© It shéutd bé located where - ,

it would not cause heavy ground
transportation through George
Town and other touristic
areas

The former naval base site,
which is now under active con-
sideration, has serious flaws. It
is a shallow area that needs and
will continue to need constant
dredging both up to and at the
docking facility. It is in the heav-
ily populated touristic part of

CODING
REQUIRED



Great Exuma. For trans-ship-
ment purposes, when leaving
George Town to go to the

- Southern Islands, one would

have to go east around the
northern tip of Long Island into
the Atlantic Ocean. This is
impossible in bad weather con-
ditions. There is no passage
between Exuma and Long
Island. This circuitous route
necessitates going into the
rough Atlantic or back up to
the northwestern tip of
Baraterre around Pudding Point
and then south to the other
Islands thereby back tracking
many miles.

It should be obvious that the
anchorage at Pudding Point on
the northwest tip of Baraterre is
the ideal location for the port.

The Pudding Point site meets
all of the following require-
ments:

e It is protected from the
northwest, north, northeast,
east, southeast and south. The
prevailing winds of any conse-
quence come from those direc-
tions

e It has high land right to the
deep water in the protected
basin

e It has two major deep water
channels from both the north-
west bank (which will minimise
the necessity of entering Exuma
Sound) and the other entrance
from Exuma Sound during
good weather

e The site is just over two
miles from Baraterre and the
continuing road system through

Exuma: Little or .no dredging: -

would have to be done either
initially of on an ongoing basis

e This location would not
require an unreasonable expen-
diture of funds and would yield
many benefits

e A facility at Pudding Point
would infuse economic activity
in the general area inclusive of
the southern Exuma Cays and
contribute to the sustainability
of the area

e The need for and prof-
itability of a container terminal



at the facility would become
obvious This project could be
commenced now on an experi-
mental basis by building a gov-
ernment dock inside Pudding
Point harbour and a road to
Baraterre. The mail boat could
stop there initiating service to
Baraterre, Stuart Manor,
Rolleville, Steventon and south-
eastward to Farmers Hill includ-
ing Emerald Bay. This could be
done at a nominal cost.

It would be remembered that
in years past, mail boats would
stop at Rolleville and Rokers’
Point weather permitting, on
their way to George Town. The
dock at pudding Point would
greatly reduce the vehicular
traffic to George Town and the
mail boat could continue to
George Town if desired.

The Naval Base

As an adjunct to the above,

‘the Naval Base site is in an

unattractive state and it should
be beautified. The vendors at
the Fish Fry should be encour-
aged and financially supported
in improving their businesses.

The site ought to be used for
cultural and civic events, always
mindful that various resort
properties, the primary school
and the mini-hospital, which are
being built, are all in the imme-
diate vicinity. Good judgement
in this matter is imperative.

Elizabeth
Harbour

Elizabeth Harbour should be
re-named the Rolly Gray Har-
bour, it should be cleaned up,
enhanced and promoted as the
Cruising Capital of the south-
ern Bahamas and the home of
sloop sailing in the country.

In consideration of all the
above, I would be privileged to
assist in any way possible which
would cause the projects to
materialise.

workers to enter the country for

a limited period of time.

He said: “What (the clause)
does is it defines very specifical-
ly what arrangements would
exist for about four categories
of people.

“(The first category), we call
them ‘Key personnel’. So if you
are an investor and you estab-
lish an investment in the
Bahamas the opportunity exists
for you to have your key per-
sonnel, CEOs (Chief Executive
Officers), CFOs (Chief Finan-
cial Officers), come and work in
your operation for up to three
years.”

“Graduate trainees” are a sec-
ond. category of workers for
whom the process by which they
can enter the Bahamas to work
is defined in the agreement.

“So for instance if you have
an operation in Germany and a
subsidiary in the Bahamas and
you have a college graduate who
is a trainee there and you want
to give them some exposure in
your operation in the Bahamas
you would be able to provide
some opportunity for them to
be able to do so up to I think 18
months or so.”

Meanwhile, he added, there
are also provisions for workers
called “sales persons.”

These are people who “for a
90-day period can come and
market a product they might
have to a Bahamian market,” he
said.

The minister of state

explained that under the ~

Bahamas’ current immigration
policy there are already
“arrangements for each of
those” kinds of workers to enter
the Bahamas to work.

“The only thing that this
agreement does is define those
in the agreement for the rela-
tionship that exists between
Europe and the Cariforum com-
munity but it doesn’t require you
to do anything beyond what you
now do other than stipulate in
the context of that relationship
how those people would be
treated.”

He said: “That does not mean,
for instance, that people will

the EPA so I’ve come looking
for a job. I don’t know a gov-
ernment of the Bahamas who
would do such a thing.”

The question of whether
Bahamian jobs would be threat-
ened if the government signs
onto the EPA with Europe
alongside the rest of the Carifo-
rum countries later this year is

one that has exercised the minds,

of numerous concerned Bahami-
ans as public awareness of the
looming trade agreement has
increased over the last few
months.

Bahamians Agitating for a
Referendum on Free Trade
(BARF) founders and attorneys
Paul Moss and Fayne Thomp-
son rallied straw vendors to
protest against the agreement
outside the House of Assembly
on the basis that the EPA would
threaten their livelihoods and
that of future generations of
Bahamians.

They contend the EPA is the
equivalent of “CSME (common
single market and economy) by
the backdoor” and would allow
the “free movement of labour”
from the Caribbean and Europe
to the Bahamas, a suggestion Mr
Laing has emphatically rejected
on many occasions.

He has spoken out against
“misinformation” being spread
about the EPA, also pointing
out that under the agreement
certain service sectors are pro-
tected or “bound”, from foreign
participation, including whole-
sale and retail trade — under
which straw vending falls.

John Pinder hasn’t

ruled out seeking
political office

FROM page one

replied:

"You know something, I have now come to the realisation
that too many people go into politics and they really don't in
particular understand the national issues or certainly they
don't understand the public service.

"I believe certainly I have a contribution I probably can
make at another level but I have to wait on God's calling for
that because J don't see myself having the finances to get in
involved in frontline politics — but if it's God's will - I'll go for
it.

"But I certainly would like to make a contribution on a
higher level, where I could cause some influence to be made on
some policy."

An issue he would like to see addressed is the creation of a
national pension scheme that would allow civil servants to
transfer their pension plan if they decide to relocate to the pri-
vate sector.

"I keep pushing this issue of (introducing) a national pension
scheme for the entire Bahamas to ensure that every worker in
this country has a pension plan in place so that if he or she
wishes to change a job, they can still take their pension bene-
fits with them.

"That's one of the things that's clogging up the public service
there are a number of civil servants who wish to go private or
move on, but the thing that keeps them in the public service is
that they have this pension they are looking forward to. If
that was a pension that could be transferred to another gov-
ernment corporation or a private agency, I believe a lot of them
would move on," he said.

Despite any aspirations to seek political office, Mr Pinder
contended that he has always remained bi-partisan when deal-
ing with union affairs:

"T stayed out of the general elections, I never campaigned for
(any) political party and I didn't campaign for any candidate.
I stayed out of it simply because I always want to have a neu-
tral and an independent position on anything I have to address
concerning a government decision that is not favourable to
workers in our country and particularly in the public service."

Astronauts handling
explosives on spacewalk

@ CAPE CANAVERAL, Fla.

TWO space station astronauts took a daring spacewalk Thursday to
cut into the insulation of their descent capsule and remove an explo-
sive bolt with firecracker force — enough to blow off their hands,
according to Associated Press.

Flight controllers in Moscow assured Sergei Volkov and Oleg

Kononenko, both Russians, that the bolt would not detonate and.

that the unprecedented job would help ensure their safe return to
Earth in the Soyuz capsule this fall. Nonetheless, Mission Control
repeatedly urged the men to be careful as they worked near the
explosives.

NASA said its own engineers were convinced the spacemen would
be in no danger, and that it would be all right for them to put the explo-
sive bolt in a blast-proof canister and take it into the space station for
eventual return to Earth. ,

The past two Soyuz descents have been steep, off-course and bone-
jarring, and the Russian Space Agency wants to avoid the problem
when Volkov and Kononenko fly home in October. The capsule cur-
rently docked at the, space station ferried up the two Russians in
April.

Kononenko used a serrated knife to cut away the thick shiny insu-
lation surrounding the bolt — a tool normally shunned by space-
walkers because of the possibility of piercing their pressurized suits or

As the spacewalk hit the three-hour mark, the spacewalkers began
installing devices to eliminate static electricity.

They had a wrench for removing the 3-inch pyrotechnic bolt, one of
10 used to separate two parts of the module during re-entry.

During Soyuz descents this past April and in October 2007, these
two sections did not separate properly, leading to so-called ballistic
entries that submitted the crews to far higher gravity forces than nor-

mal.

Russian engineers suspect some of the explosive bolts did not fire.
By disabling the bolts in this suspect location, there should be no ~

mechanical hang-up during the October descent, officials said.

a heated argument with another
young man, who suddenly pulled
out a knife and stabbed him in
his back.

The 19-year-old was taken to
the government clinic in Alice
Town, where he was treated for
his injuries and later discharged.

At about 1.20am yesterday
morning, a 17-year-old Bailey
Town male resident turned him-
self in to the Alice Town police
station, where he was subse-.
quently arrested and taken into
custody. He is assisting the police
with their investigation into this
incident.

i Bimini Police are searching
for a man wanted for questioning
in connection with striking a
woman in her face with a large
rock.

Khendra Williams, 34, of
South Bimini, was at Club Med:
itation in Bailey Town at around
2.30am on Thursday, when she
got into an argument with a man.

According to police, he
grabbed a large rock and struck

- her in the face with it, knocking

her down.

She was taken to the govern-
ment clinic in Alice Town, where
she was treated and later dis-
charged.

@ Police officers from the
Fight Mile Rock Police station,
executed a search warrant on a
house in Pinedale at 6.30am on
Wednesday.

The house in question is sus-
pected of being operated as a
grocery and retail liquor outlet.

During the search of the
premises, a large quantity of gro-
cery items, alcoholic beverages
and soft drinks, that were report-
edly being offered for sale to the
public, were seized by the police.

As a result, the 39-year-old
female owner and occupier of
that residence was arrested and
taken into custody at the Eight
Mile Rock police station.

After being processed,
she was granted police bail
in the amount of $2,000 with one
surety, to appear in the Eight

10am on Monday in order to be
formally charged.

Environmentalists voice concerns despite UN



world heritage site status for butterfly reserve

@ MEXICO CITY

ENVIRONMENTALISTS
fear the decision to list Mex-
ico's wintering grounds of the
Monarch butterfly as a U.N.
world heritage site may do
little to halt deforestation that
threatens the butterflies,
according to Associated Press.

UNESCO bestowed the
global landmark distinction
Monday on the Monarch
reserve, a series of mountain
forests west of Mexico City

where the butterflies spend .

the winter after migrating
thousands of miles (kilome-
ters) from the United States
and Canada.

"The listing isn't going to
produce results unless there is
an integral plan for the
reserve," Mexican environ-
mentalist Ivan Restrepo said
Tuesday. "I hope this serves
as a wake-up call and doesn't



just serve as an advertise-
ment."

The Mexican government
says it has turned the corner
in defending the dense fir
forests that shelter the Mon-
archs from the winter cold.

Ernesto Enkerlin, Mexico's
commissioner of natural pro-
tected areas, said the defor-
estation problem today is
confined to a few small farm-

‘ing communities that account

for about 6 percent of the
139,000-acre (56,259 hectare)
reserve.

Trees

It is mostly in those areas
that the reserve continues to
lose about 100 hectares (247
acres) of trees per year.

He acknowledged "it's a
disaster" in the problem com-
munities where much of the
land is clear-cut, but said

trees are starting to grow
back in the rest of the
reserve, where local residents
are cooperating.

"We are entering into a
new phase of the Monarch
butterfly reserve, one of
recovery," Enkerlin said.

Boundary disputes, indige-
nous issues and local rivalries
are also making it difficult for
authorities to work in those
areas, he said.

Enkerlin acknowledged
that illegal logging was so bad
at the reserve three years ago
that if authorities had pro-
posed it World Heritage sta-
tus, "we would have gotten
absolutely nowhere."

Environmentalist Homero
Aridjis, Mexico's representa-
tive to UNESCO, said the
current government is mak-
ing greater efforts to protect
the butterflies, and that the
UNESCO listing may help by



boosting the flow of tourists
to the reserve, providing
financial incentives for
preservation.,

It also may help change the
attitude of local farmers
whose land constitutes much
of the reserve.,

Journey

Each September, the but-
terflies, begin a 3,400-mile
(5,470-kilometer) journey

. from the forests of eastern

Canada and parts of the Unit-
ed States to the government-
protected reserves in the cen-
tral Mexican mountains.

While the heritage-site
listing is decided by the
U.N. Educational, Scientific
and Cultural Organization,
individual governments
where sites ‘are located are
responsible for protecting
them.

Amid oil boom, iniation

RIYADH, Saudi Arabia —
Sultan al-Mazeen recently
stopped at a gas station to fill
up his SUV, paying 45 cents a
gallon — about one-tenth
what Americans pay these
days.

But the Saudi technician
says Americans shouldn't be

Saudis feel poorer despite the

that this oil boom will n

pain at the pump, they feel it
everywhere else; paying more
at grocery: stores and restau-
rants and for rent and con-
struction material. While the
country is getting richer selling
oil at prices that climbed to a
record $145 per barrel last
week, inflation has reached
almost 11 percent, breaking
double-digits for the first time
since the late 1970s.

"Gas prices are low here, so
what?" said Muhammad
Abdullah, a 60-year-old
' retiree. "What can I do with

gas? Drink it? Take it with me
to the supermarket?"

Al-Mazeen says his month-
ly grocery bill has doubled —
to $215 — compared to last
year, when oil was at around
$70 a barrel: During that time

‘period, the price of rice has
doubled to about 72 cents a
pound, and a pound of beef
has gone up more than a third
to about $4.”

Moreover, Saudis are grap-’

estimated at 30 perceat among
young people aged 16 to 26
— and a stock market that is

in zero gravity; two fall ill

: ml MOSCOW

EVEN the black cat got queasy.
Three British artists tried this week to make art in zero gravity — one

used the cat and a mouse for a performance piece — aboard an aircraft
: used to train cosmonauts, but only one completed his work. The oth-
; er two artists felt ill, according to Associated Press.

The plane made 10 parabola-shaped flights before landing at

: Moscow's Star City cosmonaut training center.

The artists experienced zero gravity in 23-second intervals during the

flight, a series of steep climbs and sharp drops that simulate weight-
: lessness.

While on board, artist Lyn Hagan filmed the predator-prey reactions

: of the cat and mouse in zero-gravity conditions.

Both the cat and Hagan became:sick after about three loops of the

: plane, which cut.the piece short, said Nasser Azam, one of the artists
: to ride the plane, nicknamed a "vomit comet." He said he did not feel

queasy.
"What we found out was that the cat turned into a mouse," Azam

Neither animal was injured during the flight, Azam said. :
Luke Jerram, the third artist on board, became ill and his project was .

cut short.

A free-floating Azam, meanwhile, finished pre-prepared paintings

: of disembodied figures inspired by the artist Francis Bacon. Azam
: said he wanted to pay homage to Bacon's paintings.

"Quite frankly it was euphoric," Azam said after the flight. "There

: were instances when I was painting upside down."

The former Merrill Lynch chief operating officer began his canvas-

es in London using paint and finished them on board using oil pastels.
: Paint would have floated in zero-gravity conditions, he said.

Hagan conceived of the "Life In Space" project in 2004 and subse-

quently contacted the Russian Space Agency, which according to
: Azam offered the flight free of charge.

Azam is now the artist-in-residence at London's County Hall Gallery,

: which covered the project's remaining expenses.

The results of the trip will be on show at the County Hall Gallery in

: October.

Sudoku is a number-placing puzzle based on a 9x9 grid with
several given numbers. The object is to place the numbers 1 to
9 in the empty squares so the each row, each column and each
3x3 box contains the same number only once. The difficulty
ievel of the Conceptis Sudoku increases from. Monday to
Sunday

























©2008 Conceptis Puzzles, Dist. by King Features Syndicate, Inc.

Difficulty Level * *& *

Best described as a number crossword, the task in Kakuro is to
fill all of the empty squares, using numbers 1 to 9, so the sum of
each horizontal block equals the number to its left, and the sum
of each vertical block equals the number on its top. No number
may be used in the same block more than once. The difficulty



level of the Conceptis Kakuro increases from Monday to Sunday.

- revenues are helping chess. The

winner of today's puzzle stood to
collect $30,000 while the Aeroflot
Open, which immediately followed,
had a still larger prize fund. Not

enough for elite grandmasters, who ‘which white soon mates with king and queen against

stayed away or competed in the
Mexican invitational whose dates
clashed with Aeroflot. But second
line GMs were glad of the
opportunity, and today's game was
bitterly fought for more than 100
moves. It could have ended much
quicker, however, if Timofeev (White,
to move) had found the right choice
in the diagram. Of course rook and
pawn against bishop and pawn can
be tricky, but White's 1 Re8? was

limp and unnecessarily prolonged
the game, Can you find the precise
selection which would have forced
Black's speedy resignation?

Dear Mr. Becker: | have been a
reader of your column for many
years and have followed with interest
your recounting of the exploits of
some of the most prominent players
in the world.

However, though I’ve never won a
national championship or, for that
matter, any other kind of champi-
onship, I hereby stake my claim to at
least equal recognition as one of the

A Tall Tale

world’s foremost players.

The only catch is that all my mar-
velous bids and plays take place
while I’m asleep, and ] must confess
that there is an enormous difference
between the way | play when I’m
awake and the way | play when I’m
asleep. In case you don’t believe me,
just ask my partners how I play when
I’m not in the land of Nod.

Here is a typical example of my
prowess. I played the hand just last
night — while asleep, of course. |
was West and led the nine of spades.
My wife, Sapphira, won the trick
with the king and continued with the
ace and another spade.

I’m sure everybody would think
that South must now make the con-
tract, since his only losers, as the
cards lie, appear to be two diamond
tricks. But, as | stated earlier, these
players are totally unaware of the
brilliance of my play when I am in
the arms of Morpheus.

On Sapphira’s ace of spades |
discarded the king of diamonds, and
on the third round of spades | dis-
carded the ace of diamonds! As a
result of these two plays, there was
nothing South could do to avoid
going down two.

Cordially yours, Ford E. Winx.

Hoe a eH
Bay offer likely ‘in
two-three weeks’

‘Mix of players’
changes in
buyer group




@ By NEIL HARTNELL
Tribune Business
Editor






THE $320 million Four
Seasons Emerald Bay
Resort’s receiver has told
The Tribune he is hoping the
hotel’s potential buyer will
submit a revised proposal to
the Government in “the next
two to three weeks”, its
investor mix having changed.

Russell Downs, a London-
based PricewaterhouseC-
oopers (PwC) partner, said a
completed purchase of Exu-
ma’s ‘anchor resort’ proper-
ty was “a little way away”,
given the need for Govern-
ment approval and the trans-
action’s complexity,
although he hoped it would
close “soon”.

“The next sort of two to
three weeks is the window
we are looking at,” Mr
Downs said, when asked
about when the Four Sea-
sons Emerald Bay Resort’s
proposed buyer would sub-
mit a revised bid to the Gov-
ernment, the first one having
been rejected by the Ingra-
ham administration.

He added: “We’re in that
critical stage where my stat-
ed aim is to achieve a sale
of the resort, and hopefully
we will have constructive
news on that pretty soon.”

Mr Downs indirectly con-
firmed Tribune Business’s
previous revelation. that the
Government rejected the
initial $125 million offer. by.
Ambrose Holdings
(Bahamas) due to concerns
over whether the group had
the financial wherewithal
and ability to take the Four
Seasons Emerald Bay
Resort forward and com-
plete its full build-out.

When this sequence of
events was put to Mr
Downs, he replied: “That’s
neatly put.” He also con-
firmed that “the mix of play-
ers has changed” in the buy-
ing group, indicating that
Ambrose Holdings
(Bahamas) may no longer
be playing the lead role and
that other investors, with
greater equity capital and
resort industry expertise,
may have been brought in
to convince the Government
that the deal should be
approved.

Legal action ‘highly likely’
on ‘retroactive’ tax move

@ By NEIL HARTNELL
Tribune Business Editor

IT IS “highly likely” that the Government
and Customs Department will face legal action
over attempts to “retroactively” apply the
higher 2008-2009 Budget tax rates to ‘post
paid’ bonded good sales that occurred dur-

* GBPA licensees see June post-paid duty
submissions rejected by Bahamas Customs °

ing the previous Budget year, a former Grand

Bahama Chamber of Commerce president

told Tribune Business.

Christopher Lowe, operations manager at
Kelly’s (Freeport), who is consulting an attor-
ney on his legal options after the company’s
submission of taxes collected in June on ‘post
paid’ over-the-counter bonded goods sales
was rejected, suggested there were four poten-
tial avenues for seeking legal recourse.

The first, he said, was to seek a Supreme
Court injunction preventing Bahamas Cus-
toms from applying the new — and often high-

‘Many’ real estate sales

delayed by Gazette wait —

Concern expressed about work
permit fees being made retroactive

@ By NEIL HARTNELL
Tribune Business Editor

THE Bahamas Real Estate
Association’s (BREA) presi-
dent has told Tribune Busi-
ness he is receiving calls from
the group’s members express-
ing concern that “many” prop-
erty transactions are being
held up by the wait for the
2008-2009 Budget tax breaks
to become law.

The Budget introduced
numerous real estate and con-
struction industry-related tax
breaks, particularly on the
Stamp Tax and Real Property
Tax, but William Wong said
BREA members and their
clients were still waiting for
these changes to be Gazzetted
and thus become law, so they
could take advantage of them.

“That is an issue, and we’re
waiting for this thing to
become legal,” Mr Wong told
Tribune Business. “It can’t
happen until the Budget is
Gazzetted.

“Right now, that’s holding
up a lot of closings and sales,
because this thing with the
Gazette is not happening.
We’ve been told it’s immi-
nent.”

Although he did not have
numbers, Mr Wong said the
failure to Gazette and bring
into law the tax incentives
designed to stimulate the real
estate industry, especially the
first-time homebuyer market,
had delayed “many sales”
based on the calls he was
receiving from BREA-
licensed realtors.

“In know this is affecting
some of my members,” Mr
Wong said. “I did get calls
from a number of my mem-
bers that there is a hold-up
because this thing has not
been made law yet.”

Christopher Lowe, opera-
tions manager at Kelly’s
(Freeport), told Tribune Busi-
ness that attorneys had
informed him that they were
experiencing difficulty in clos-
ing real estate transactions,
too, due to the failure to pub-
lish and Gazette in the news-
paper the new Stamp Tax and
Real Property Tax amend-
ments.

Wayne Munroe, the
Bahamas Bar Association’s
president, did not return Tri-
bune Business’s call seeking
comment.

In his Budget debate

speech, Mr Ingraham said all
first-time homebuyers would
be exempt from Stamp Tax
on property purchases up to
$500,000 in value for a five-
year period, provided the
property would be used as
their primary residence.

The threshold at which first-
time homebuyers will be
exempt from paying real prop-
erty tax for the first five years
was increased from $250,000
to $500,000, again provided

THE costs associated with the Bahamas

‘implementing its. Economic Partnership Agree-

ment obligations (EPA) with the European
Union will possibly be no more than $2 million,
although the minister of state for finance,
Zhivargo Laing, said that he was hesitant to put
an exact figure out.

Speaking at a Bahamas Association of Com-
pliance Officers (BACO) seminar on the EPA,
Mr Laing said much of that expense will go
towards the upgrading of operational systems
such as the Customs Department’s computer
banks, and creating a Standards Bureau and
competition policies. These bodies will have
to be created, plus there is the actual cost
involved in creating EPA legislation and pass-
ing it into law.

However, he pointed out that many of the
changes or upgrades that will be made are ones
that have already been provided for, or ones
that the Government would have had to make

Mr Laing said the Bahamas also had most of
the necessary human resource capital already in
place, and had hired other personnel already.

Hank Ferguson, the trade advisor to the
Bahamas Chamber of Chamber, added that
some of the cost involved will be borne by the
EU through the contributions it makes not
only on a regional basis, but to individual coun-
tries as well.

He also indicated that the Bahamas would
receive some level of compensation for signing
on to the agreement.

Mr Ferguson indicated that two major factors
to be dealt with will be the competition aspect
and the Standards Bureau, which would
create initial costs but have real economic ben-
efit.

Hearing the arguments for and against the
EPA, Mr Ferguson said it has little to do with
politics and less to do with allies, but was relat-
ed to the fact that the Bahamas needs allies so
that it does not always remain on the outside
looking in.

He added that given the fact that services
accounts for so much of the economy, it was

Ambrose Holdings
(Bahamas) ability to finance
the purchase was not in ques-
tion, the company also having
an interest in the nearby
Roker’s Point project in Exu-
ma.

Tribune Business under-
stands the Government’s main
concern is to ensure any buyer
will provide a long-term solu-
tion and the necessary capital.
The last thing the administra-
tion would want is for the Four
Seasons Emerald Bay Resort
to go into receivership again
several years from now.

“We’re moving through to
the final stages of the transac-
tion. We’re working with the
parties to try and bring this to

fruition,” Mr Downs told Tri-

bune Business.

“There’s obviously signifi-
cant complexity in this trans-
action, and a number of people
are working pretty hard to
complete on this. We’re not
there yet, but hopefully we will
be quite soon. I can’t give a
view on time, other than that
we will get there soon.”

The PwC partner said the
Four Seasons Emerald Bay
Resort had been in receiver-
ship for over a year now, and
while its performance had
“dropped off slightly”, this was
due to the state of the tourism
market and global economy,
rather than the receivership.

“The resort has its own
brand, and we structured this
to take the receivership a long
way from that,” Mr Downs
said. “IJ was there the other
week and had a tour with the
manager. It was a lovely day
and the resort looked great.
But people will wait and see
what the next stage in the
resort’s ownership will be.”

Adding that PwC was “work-
ing constantly with a number
of parties to minimize” the
effect the global liquidity/cred-
it market crunch is having on
the search for a buyer, Mr
Downs said: “Receivership is
not a long-term solution. ’m
sure everyone wants a conclu-
sion to the receivership sooner

Revised Emerald Bay offer
likely ‘in two-three weeks’

rather than later, and that’s
what we’re trying to achieve.”

The impending retirement of
his fellow receiver, Nassau-
based PwC partner Wayne
Aranha, would have no impact
on the buyer search; Mr Downs
added.

The Four Seasons property,
considered the model or
“poster child” of the Family
Island anchor investment pro-
jects, entered into receivership
after the ownership company,
Emerald Bay Resort Holdings,
defaulted on its loan repay-
ments in April 2007.

‘The receivers were appoint-
ed at the behest of the resort’s
main creditor, nominee Flint
Securities, which is based im
London. However, the main
creditor, and the entity with
most exposure to the resort, is
said to be the London arm of
the Japanese bank, Mitsui.

Emerald Bay’s owners had
been looking to sell the resort
for some 18 months to two
years before their loan default,
and several potential deals fell
through.

These included a $117 mil-
lion offer from Petters Group
Worldwide, plus a combined
bid from the private equity arm
of Goldman Sachs and Rock-
point. It is estimated that a
potential buyer would need to
spend at least $7 million to
complete proposed plans for
the 23-acre marina.

Emerald Bay has acted as
Exuma’s main economic



nS

WEEKENDS

engine, attracting additional
foreign direct investment to the
island. It employs almost 500
staff, and features an 18-hole
Greg Norman Golf Course,
two restaurants, three pools,
spa, six meeting rooms
and 450-person capacity ball-
room.

Other investment projects
attracted to the Emerald Bay
vicinity include the resort’s Pin-
nacle Entertainment-managed
$5 million casino, the $110 mil-
lion Grand Isle Villas develop-
ment, plus the 80/50 fractional
ownership component.

A shopping complex has also
opened at Emerald Bay, the
anchor retailer being the Emer-
ald Isle supermarket. The com-
plex also includes businesses’
such as Scotiabank and Mail
Boxes Etc.

While Four Seasons, as the
operating/management part-
ner, may be earning a profit
because it collects its money as
a percentage of the gross rev-
enues and operating profits, the
resort’s owners - like so many
in the Bahamas - are not and
are losing money.

Their failure to generate sig-
nificant critical mass through
real estate and land sales, the
sectors most likely to give them
an instant - and greatest -
investment return have also
contributed to the difficulties,
as have the resort’s high con-
struction costs and traditional-
ly high operating costs in the
Bahamas.

China's June trade surplus shrinks

@ BEIJING

CHINA'S rapid export
growth plunged in June, the gov-
ernment reported Thursday, and
analysts said Beijing might
respond by slowing its curren-
cy's rise in defiance of pressure
from Washington and other
trading partners, according to
Associated Press.

Appreciation of China's yuan
against the dollar "will slow sig-

nificantly" in the second half of ~

the year, after the currency rose
at an annualized rate of 12 per-
cent against the dollar in the first
half, said economist Mingchun
Sun of Lehman Brothers.
China's global trade surplus
in June was $21.3 billion, the
biggest monthly gap since
December, but a 20 percent

decline from the same month :
last year, according to the Chi- :
na's General Administration OF;
Customs.

Exports rose by 18.2 percent :
over the year-earlier period to :
$121.5 billion — a sharp drop :
from May's 28 percent growth }
rate, the data showed. Imports :
surged 23.7 percent to $100.1 bil- ;
lion.

The figures reflect weaker |

global demand for Chinese : :
goods amid worries about a pos- :
sible U.S. recession, while Chi- :
na's robust growth and con- }

sumer spending drive imports.

"This is crunch time for Chi- :
na," said Standard Chartered :
economist Stephen Green. "Bei- :
jing is more than a little con- :
cerned about the impact of a }

slowing global economy."

Referendum urged
before EPA signing

m@ By CARA
BRENNEN-BETHEL
Tribune Business
Reporter

THE Government should
not commit the Bahamas to
signing the Economic Part-
nership Agreement (EPA)
with the European Union
(EU) before the Bahamian
people vote on it in a refer-
endum, an asttorney said,
arguing that regional experts
believe the treaty may not
assist the national develop-
ment of individual Caribbean
states.

Fayne Thompson, co-chair
of Bahamians Agitating for a
Referendum on Free Trade
(BARF), the group that has

been very vocal in its oppo-
sition to the EPA, said: “The

Government does not have

the right to make such an
important decision behind
close doors, taken by 40 peo-
ple and maybe a few bureau-
crats.”

Agreement

Addressing a Bahamas
Association of Compliance
Officers (BACO) seminar on
the Economic Partnership
Agreement, Mr Thompson
stressed the whole question
of whether this nation should
sign the trade agreement
with the EU should be put
to the people in a referen-
dum.

Instead, under the current
process, the Government will
first decide whether the
Bahamas will sign the EPA -
the signing ceremony having
been pushed back to Sep-
tember 2008 - before coming
to Parliament to present a
Bill to ratify and give effect
to the treaty’s obligations in
Bahamian law.

Mr Thompson accused the
Government of not being as
forthcoming as it should
have been in providing infor-
mation on the EPA to the
Bahamian public, leading to
much confusion on the goods
and services offers the coun-
try is making.

‘For example, he said that
until that evening [Wednes-
day], he had been unaware
of just how the EPA’s
requirements for the move-
ment of labour would be
implemented.

Mr Thompson argued that
in his view it was irresponsi-
ble to have the Bahamas sign
on to such an agreement,
which various regional
experts have determined is
not one that may significant-
ly aid the Caribbean’s devel-
opment.

He added out that in the
general scheme of things, the
exports the Bahamas sup-
plied to the EU - seafoods
and Polymers - accounted for
less than 0.1 per cent of the

EU’s total imports each year.
Those Bahamian exports are
currently allowed into the
European Union duty and
quota free.

Zhivargo Laing, minister
of state for finance, who was
also a seminar panellist,
countered that whole Family
Island communities were
dependent on supplying lob-
sters (crawfish) to Bahami-
an wholesalers for onward
supply to the EU.

Rights

- They needed that revenue
income to survive, and he
said no responsible govern-
ment could fail to protect the
rights of that sector of soci-
ety by losing duty-free access
to Europe.

Mr Laing also countered
that information on the EPA
was provided on his min-
istry’s website, as this was
the best medium in which to
make it public, given the
sheer size of the agreement
document.

The two men were joined
by the Bahamas Chamber of
Commerce’s advisor on
trade, Hank Ferguson, at the
Town Meeting, which was
well attended.

Both panellists and audi-
ence members were very
vocal and passionate.

colm, Managing Director, Scotiabank

imising the need to carry cash or cheques.
That adds up to 14 million locations
worldwide.

new opportunities that our card will give
customers who prefer to shop online, by
mail or by phone. The ScotiaCard is the

only card customers need for an easy,
fast and safe way to pay.”

ScotiaCard to access their bank accounts
at any Scotiabank branch or at automat-
ed teller machines (ATMs) across the
Bahamas. Now they will also have access
to over 900,000 Visa/Plus branded bank
machines worldwide.

The Scotiacard with Visa Debit also

has the added benefit of ScotiaCard Pro-

tect. This benefit that will be provided
free of charge to all holders of the Scoti-
aCard with Visa Debit, will insure items
bought with the ScotiaCard against theft
and damage. In addition, tickets for an
airplane, ship, train or bus, will be cov-
ered for travel accident insurance.
Scotiabank customers are encouraged

to visit their branch, where the Bank will
replace their existing card, free of charge.
Customers must provide their existing
ScotiaCard and two pieces of identifica-
tion.

Scotiabank has been in the Bahamas
since 1956, and has 20 branches and units.
The bank has 656 employees in the
Bahamas. -

i Mr Ingraham said during the Budget debate: “The amend-
: ment to the Real Property Tax Act removes the cap of $35,000
: as the maximum tax payable on real property valued .over
: $3.75 million, and provides for a reduced tax of 3/4 of 1 per cent
i (reduced from 1 per cent) for homes valued at $5 million or

i: “These revenue measures will have a significant impact.
: We expect the extensive changes to Stamp Tax and to the Real

: inexpensive mortgages, and to assist them to develop their own

i Meanwhile, Mr Lowe said the business community was also

: introduced. ee

i He added that work permits approved before July 1, 2008,
: and carrying an approval stamp dated before then, but not
: received before July 1, were being charged the new, higher fees

“They are being rejected on
the grounds that the new tariff
rates apply retroactively back
through May and June,” Mr
Lowe said of GBPA licensees’
post-paid duty entries.

“July is not when the transac-
tions, upon which the revenue
collection is based, took place.
It’s based on the act of the day. I
could accept the changed rates
and headings for July, but only if
we are notified.”

He added: “They’re [Customs]
holding me responsible for col-
lecting the revenue due to them at
the time of the transaction. They
cannot come back to me a year
later for more money because the

law has changed.

“How can they make it retroac-
tive? At this point, it is highly
likely that there will be-litigation,
unless we receive some commu-
nication from the authorities that
seems to correct the practices of
Customs.

“Not only are they seeking to
make collections for May and
June retroactive to the Act, from
July 1 they will be collecting post-
paid duty submissions for July
when no one will know what to
collect for them.”

The Kelly’s (Freeport) opera-

overall impact from the Budget

rates ‘rounded up’ — for example,
from 42 per cent to 45 per cent —

dise by a 20 per cent average.

“In effect, Kelly’s is going to
collect a 40 per cent average rate
for Customs, compared with an
average 30 per cent rate in the
past. That’s generally a rule,” he
said. Customs collected on aver-
age $100 million in duties from
Freeport per annum, with some
40 per cent of that thought to be
generated by post-paid sales, fig-
ures that give an indication of
what is at stake for both the Gov-
ernment finances and GBPA
licensees. ;

Mr Lowe told Tribune Busi-
ness that Kelly’s (Freeport’s)
post-paid duty submission to Cus-
toms for May 2008 had initially
been rejected on June 8, the
department citing the fact that
tariff rates and headings had
changed as a result of the 2008-
2009 Budget.

However, after a phone con-
versation with an official in Cus-
toms’ entry-checking department,
the original submission for May
was put back in, accepted and
paid for on June 23.

Mr Lowe said one critical prob-
lem was that the Customs Depart-

/ment had changed the tariff rates

and headings in its computer sys-
tem to reflect the 2008-2009 Bud-
get changes before the old fiscal
year had been completed.

Now, Customs was unable to
reconcile the rates and tariff
headings in post-paid duty sub-
missions sent in this month for
May and June 2008 because it had
wiped these from its computer
system.

Mr Lowe said the Govern-
ment’s failure to properly inform
both GBPA licensees and
Freeport-based Customs officials
of the tariff rate and heading
changes in a timely manner had
thrown the post-paid duty system
into “confusion”.

“Everyone is very busy trying
to upgrade their systems based
upon the new tariff rate books
that were made available only
after July 1. Those changes are
so broad-based, sweeping and
evolutionary that it’s no overnight
task,” Mr Lowe said.

“It’s across the board. The tar-
iff rates have changed, the head-
ings have changed and they did it
to most line items. A week or two
will be required to change point
of sale systems to reflect and col-
lect the correct duty and excise
rates.”

Two other potential legal chal-
lenges, he suggested, were to seek
Supreme Court declarations on
whether Customs was “the
enforcer of licensee compliance”
on bonded goods, sivénthe terms
of the GBPA licence and Hawks-
bill Creek Agreement.



NOTICE

The GBPA licensees could also
seek a declaration of their stand-
ing on the collection and remit-
tance of post-paid duty, based on
the rates and headings in
existence at the time or the Cus-
toms’ goods entry approval stamp
date.

Mr Lowe said he understood
Customs officers in Freeport only
received copies of the new Tariff
and Excise Act rates and head-
ings on July 2, one day after they
were supposed to take effect.

This left Customs playing catch
up as it familiarized itself with
the new data, and caused clear-
ance of imported items to slow
down.

Mr Lowe added that he himself
was only able to obtain the new
rate book on July 3 by paying
$300 for a copy from the Prime
Minister’s Office, after first check-
ing with Zhivargo Laing, minister
of state for finance, that copies
were available.

Freeport, through the Hawks-
bill Creek Agreement and with
the support of numerous
Supreme Court rulings against
Bahamas Customs, works differ-
ently from all other parts of the
Bahamas when it comes to tax
collection.

Freeport-based wholesalers
and retailers are able to sell bond-
ed goods, meaning that no import
or stamp duties have been paid
on them at the border, to other
GBPA licensees provided the
goods are for use in their own
business.

Yet they also collect ‘post paid’
duties — taxes paid after the prod-
ucts are sold — if the goods and
materials are purchased by
Freeport residents and individuals
for use in their homes.

In this case, Freeport’s mer-
chants calculate the duty due to
the Government ‘post import’ on
its landed cost, and remit the cor-
rect amount to Customs by the

15th of each month.

What has happened to the
Freeport post-paid duty sales sys-
tem, and across the Bahamian
business community generally as
a result of the Budget tax
changes, indicates that imple-
mentation and public relations
were not perhaps all they should
have been.

Still, the business community
seemed to switch off post-Bud-
get communication, and not take
notice of Prime Minister Hubert
Ingraham’s Budget debate
speech, in which he indicated tar-
iff rates would be rounded up as
the Government sought to bal-
ance its tax cuts with fiscal
responsibility and ensure the
administration had enough rev-
enue to meetitsneeds.

dividends as soon as the 2008
financial statements are avail-
able.”

The Bahamas Supermarkets’
chairman’s comments also con-
firmed Tribune Business’s report
that cash flow had been impacted
by a “too aggressive” role-out of
the company’s $4 million in-store
IT upgrades.

His letter also confirmed
another aspect of this newspa-
per’s June 30, 2008, report, name-
ly that the 12-store City Markets
chain operator had suffered an
“invoice backlog”, forcing it to
work its way through a mountain
of inventory and accounts
payables records that have now
been brought up to date.

Although Mr Sands’ letter did
not confirm this, sources had also
previously told Tribune Business
that the cash flow issues had
impacted Bahamas Supermar-
kets’ ability to buy bulk product
shipments from its main US-
based wholesale supplier, Super-
value International. As a result,
the company had been increas-
ingly sourcing product through
Bahamas-based wholesalers in
smaller purchases.

Describing Bahamas Super-
markets’ problems as “tempo-
rary”, and the company as “fun-
damentally sound”, Mr Sands
added: “We fully expect to
restore its financial health in the
ensuing months.”

As for the 2007 financial state-
ments; Mr Sands said the external

auditor, KPMG, had advised that :

all “material aspects of their field-
work” had been completed. Pro-
vided Bahamas Supermarkets
was able to “satisfactorily
respond” to any queries raised
over the audit, the company was
“optimistic” that it could issue
the 2007 audited financial
statements by end-July 2008,
some 13 months after the year
ended.

Mr Sands also confirmed Tri-
bune Business’s exclusive reve-
lation that the main factor behind
the 2007 audit delay was that
KMPG was forced to manually
verify hundreds of point-of-sale
transactions, after no replace-
ment accounting systems were
implemented to replace those
removed by former majority.

Cash flow woes
confirmed by
City Markets

owner Winn-Dixie when its Tran-
sition Services Agreement was
ended.

Mr Sands explained that after
the BSL Holdings consortium
acquired the majority 78 per cent
stake in Bahamas Supermarkets
from Winn-Dixie for $54 million
in summer 2006, the US-based
grocery chain agreed to continue
providing support services for
one year under a Transition Ser-
vices Agreement.

In return, Bahamas Supermar-
kets would pay Winn-Dixie a flat
$1 million fee, plus a 5 per cent
mark-up on all products the US
grocer supplied it with. Deter-
mined to exit that agreement ear-
ly, Bahamas Supermarkets did
so in January 2007, producing
what Mr Sands said was an esti-
mated $400,000 saving.

That, though, may pale against
the extra audit costs incurred.
The Bahamas Supermarkets
chairman said the Board and its
operating partner, Barbados
Shipping & Trading, “moved
swiftly to separate Bahamas
Supermarkets’ operations from
dependence on Win-Dixie ser-
vices.

“New inventory control sys-
tems were installed, new prod-
ucts sourced to replace Winn-
Dixie’s private brands, and addi-
tional management recruited to
provide ongoing operational sup-
port.... Scanning was introduced
in all locations.”

Yet Mr Sands said “certain
crucial aspects of such a complex
transition in systems and process-
es were not effectively managed,
due to various factors”, although
he did not detail what the
“crucial aspects”, “systems
and processes”, and “factors”
were,

The result was that “the relia-
bility of the books and records
of the company was compro-
mised”, and KPMG had to rely
on manual verification as
Bahamas Supermarkets could
not provide it with computer-gen-
erated data for audit purposes.
Management was further “bur-
dened” by KPMG expanding its
audit procedures because of the
change in systems.

Following the departures of
Ken Burns and Bryan Knowles
as chief executive and chief finan-
cial officer respectively, and their
replacement by Stephen Boyle
and Vangy Rahming, the com-
pany has;hired outside account-
ing consultants. These persons

include Alison Treco from FT
Consulting, plus personnel from
Deloitte & Touche (Bahamas).

Bahamas Supermarkets has
also hired “a well-known super-
market advisor from the US. to
assist us in re-engineering and re-
tooling the company”.

As a result, Mr Sands said the
year-end 2008 audit would be
“more timely” in publication.

Investors will be eager to see
whether Bahamas Supermarkets
has remained profitable, given
that its BSL Holdings majority
owner is reliant on dividends
upstreamed from the company
to service the $5 million prefer-
ence shares and $24 million Roy-
al Bank of Canada debt it took
on to finance the acquisition.

Many observers in the super-
market and financial communi-
ties believe that BSL Holdings
massively overpaid for Winn-
Dixie’s 78 per cent stake, possibly
by as much as $15-$20 million.

In the run-up to the summer
2006 purchase, a number of
sources told Tribune Business
that Bahamas Supermarkets was
valued, at most, at $30-$35 mil-
lion, as the company did not own
any of its stores or head office.
They argued that the company’s
thinly-traded shares on the over-
the-counter market were over-
valued, and not a true reflection
of the company’s worth.

BSL Holdings’ investors
include Barbados Shipping &
Trading, Fidelity’s private equity
arm, the hotel industry pension
funds and well-known Bahami-
an wholesaler and businessman,
Franklyn Butler.

Sources close to BSL Holdings
said the $24 million Royal Bank
loan that helped to finance the
company’s purchase from Winn-
Dixie was not secured on
Bahamas Supermarkets or the
operating company’s assets.
Instead, it was pegged at the BSL
Holdings level, meaning it could
not move to take over the oper-
ating company.

The delay in publishing not just
the 2007 full-year audited finan-
cial statements, but also numbers
for the first three quarters in
2008, is understood to have cre-
ated problems for BSL Holdings
because it put the buyout group
technically in breach of one of
its banking covenants with Royal
Bank.

This particular covenant
required BSL Holdings to pro-
vide financial reporting updates
to Royal Bank within a certain
time period after each quarter
ended.

This it was unable to do
because of the issues at Bahamas

Supermarkets, leading Royal .
. Bank to work more closely with

sits lending counterparty.

in dealings with businessman

FROM page one

Real Estate Association’s
(BREA) president, to
numerous leading Bahami-
an realtors, warned “our
entire membership to be on
the lookout for Mr Rudy
King, also known = as
Rudolph Kermit King.
“The company he is using
or trading as is called Lord
and Christies, and Loving
Life Foundation Inc. Mem-
bers are advised to use
extreme caution with any
dealings with this person.”
Mr Wong told Tribune
Business: “I had gotten a

bers that he [Mr King] was

names.

“T just wanted to give our
members a warning to be
careful and watch the dif-
ferent names this man
uses.”

Mr King could be reached
for comment before the July
10 Independence celebra-
tions. He is also said to use
the name Tropical Airways.

The colourful Mr King,
who is also Known as Dr
Rudolph King or Rudolph
King-Laroda, is no stranger
to controversy.

Chairman of the self-
styled non-profit King

2 DAYS

Humanitarian and Global
Organisation, Mr King was
last year indicted by a US
federal grand jury for
allegedly filing a false claim
with the Internal Revenue
Service (IRS) for a $2.7 mil-
lion tax refund.

The alleged offence,
which Mr King has denied,
took place in the northern
judicial district of Califor-
nia, and involved him -
using the name Klever Ros-
ales - presenting a tax
refund claim that he
allegedly knew was false.

The US attorney’s office

5 ONI Y July 11 &

for the northern district of
California alleged: “The
false claim asserted that
Rosales is the president of
Salute Greatness, Inc., a
company located in Beverly
Hills, California.

* “On or about July 26,
2007, Mr King, using the
name Klever Rosales, sub-
mitted a fraudulent interna-
tional money order payment
to the IRS in the amount of
$2.7 million.

“Mr King, again using the
name Klever Rosales, con-
tacted the Taxpayer Advo-
cate Service (TAS) and
requested an expedited
refund for $2.7 million. He
claimed the payment was
made in error and wanted
the funds returned as soon

as possible. On September
20, 2007, he faxed a fraudu-
lent claim to the TAS in the
amount of $2.7 million,
along with additional docu-
ments which appeared to be
fraudulent, in order to sub-
stantiate his false claim.”

Mr King was arrested in
Los Angeles on November
16, 2007, but was able to
post bail and return to the
Bahamas.

Fresh legal battles were
not far away, though, as Mr
King and his attorney,
Wayne Munroe, appealed
to the Court of Appeal in
May-June 2008 to set aside
a-2006 verdict by Supreme
Court Justice John Lyons
that declared him bankrupt.

That bankruptcy declara-

tion resulted from a legal
action brought by Cavalier
Construction, which alleged
that Mr King owed them an
$824,938 unpaid debt for
work done on his home.

Mr King had previously
been involved in a separate
2004 Nassau court case, in
which the American
Express credit card compa-
ny alleged he owed it a
$400,000 debt.

And in 2006, controversy
arose over an awards cere-
mony Dr King was staging
in Bermuda, after media in
that country claimed agents
for stars such as Will Smith
and Halle Berry denied
their clients knew about the
event or would be attend-
ing - contrary to his claims.

MVP YOUNG MEN:



YOUNG MEN respond to the call to rise
above their environment and follow their
dreams.



HE Men of Valour and Purpose (MVP)

. Officially launched its male mentorship

programme with a basketball and dominos tour-
nament.

The event was held on the Cynthia "Mother"
Pratt Park, in the heart of the Grove Community
last month. The atmosphere was charged with
positivity as young men competed in the slam
dunk competition, three on three basketball tour-
nament, and in the dominoes competition.

Trophies, phone cards and gifts were awarded
to the winners and runners-up. Musical artists
were invited to bring some flavour, and free hot-
dogs and hamburgers were heartily welcomed.

Elder Reno Brennen addressed the young men,

highlighting the pitfalls and mistakes of his life.



Elder Brennen, a former drug addict, is now using
his testimony to steer young men in a positive
direction. He encouraged the young men to be
dreamers and to rise above the difficulties of their
environment.

The response from the young men was tremen-.
dous and they spoke of the need for more events

of this sort..

MVP is a male mentorship programme that
deals with character development. It targets teens
and young men (ages 13-21) to assist in equipping
them to be good citizens of the Bahamas. This
movement exists to preserve a generation of qual-
ity Bahamian men.

MVP is led by a group of vibrant young men:

e Dave Newbold - director

e Akari Murray - president



MVP BALL 5: Three on three basket-
ball winners.



MVP EXECUTIVE
BOARD:
Members of the
Men of Valour
and Purpose's

(MVP) executive
board.

e Jamaal Coleby - vice president

e Gregory Smith - secretary

e Jermaine Wallace - assistant secretary
e Deno Cartwright - treasurer

e Jamaal Knowles - assistant treasurer
¢ Kevin Rolle - chaplain

The programme will continue with weekly
meetings at the Yellow Elder Primary School to
assist with positive male mentorship. The group
meets every Thursday from 6pm to 8pm.

' Several corporate and private sponsors assisted
in making the dream of MVP a reality. They
include: Bahamas Against Crime, headed by Rev
Dr C B Moss: National Student Christian
Movement (SCM); the College of the Bahamas'
SCM; Mr Paul D Moss Jr and Coca-Cola.

Patronal Festival or feast day as it is

that saw members turn out in full force
to hear the sermon delivered by Father

Father Chester Burton, in his wel-

the congregation that it was 25 years
ago that Fr Knowles was priest in
charge of Cat Island. He further saluted
Fr Knowles for the yeoman service he
had rendered, because at that time in
Cat Island there was no electricity, run-
ning water or telephone service.

Fr Knowles, in his sermon, admon-
ished members to be brave and valiant
like St Peter and St Paul who were
never afraid and did not compromise
the gospel of Jesus Christ.

St Peter's Restoration Group also
attended this Patronal Festival. Every

Can't Get Right!




A movie was made
a few years ago

by the name of “Life”,

which stared _- Eddie
Murphy, Martin Lawrence and a host
of other actors that were prison
inmates. In this movie was also a
young, deaf and dumb inmate who was
known as “Can't Get Right”. This
young man had some amazing talents
as a baseball player; his talents afford-
ed him the opportunity of an early
release from prison to play baseball.

Life! What does it mean to us as a
people who claim to be a Christian
nation, but yet refuses to or just 'Can't
Get Right'?

No, in most cases we choose not to
get it right by blatantly disobeying
God's word. In studying the word of
God I've discovered that there is a
great spiritual parallel between the city
of Corinth and the Bahamas.

Corinth was a wicked, wealthy, com-
mercial centre that was known for its
cosmopolitan culture and luxurious
temples. Likewise, despite all the talks
about the Bahamas being a Christian
nation, nothing could be farther from
the truth. The Bahamas is also a
wicked, wealthy, commercial centre
that is bent on culture; our leaders
(political, religious and civic) spare no
expense in building their luxurious

temples of worship, and palaces to live -

PASTOR
MATTHEW




We do a good job in displaying our
religious Christianity on Sundays or at
various church events and in front of
the crowd, but at the end of the day we
aren't right.

I'm wondering if we, as a people, are
aware of how we've allowed the law of
deterioration to eat away the very core
values of this country; whereas integri-
ty, justice and respect for each other is
a thing of the past.

There was a time throughout the
length and breadth of the Bahamas that
a man's word was as good as gold;
today, not only are the words of some
leaders worthless, but also their signa-
tures. What's sad about all of this is
that our people seem to enjoy and wel-
come this sort of character defect in our

leadership pool straight across the

board.

1. The politicians that are filled with
empty promises and can tell the best
lies are often the ones that the people
choose to represent them.



2. The religious leaders that are con-
stantly lying in God's name and operat-
ing with their ulterior motives are often
the ones that the people look up too
and seek to emulate.

3. The business man that is known to
be crooked in his dealings - and that
may or may not have a close affiliation
with either of the above mentioned -
will always be the community's first
choice to do business with, rather than
an honest businessman who is going to
ask questions.

What does that say about us as a peo-
ple? It literally says that we are a cor-
rupt and wicked people that hide under
the umbrella of Christianity and some
other religions.

The thought and the process of get-
ting things right is a painful one that
would require us to change our wicked
ways and begin to walk in love and
operate in integrity. This can only hap-
pen as a result of a personal encounter
with and submission to. the word of
Yahweh and the teachings of His Son,
Yeshuwa Messiah.

Let's look at a corrupt political/reli-
gious leader who had a life changing
encounter with Yeshuwa Messiah.

Luke 19:5 And when Jesus came to
the place, He looked up and saw him,
and said unto him, Zaccheus, make
haste, and come down: for today I must

abide at thy house. ;
Vs 8: And Zaccheus stood, and said
unto the Lord; Behold, Lord the half of
my goods I give to the poor; and if I
have taken any thing from any man by
false accusation, I restore him fourfold.

One encounter with the Lord can
revolutionize the worst of the worst; it
can also cause a man to humble himself
and do the right thing. With this in
mind, and all the negatives we're expe-
riencing as a nation, it's only fair to ask
the question; How many of our leaders
(especially religious and political) have
truly had an encounter with the Lord?

The answer to that question is rather
simple - not many of them.

For if they did, restoration would be
the order of the day throughout. the
Bahamas instead of corruption and
wickedness.

faith.

In a country reportedly plagued by
terrorism, daily bombings and constant
events of unrest, the travellers to the
Feast of Pentecost Kingdom Summit
2008, walked peacefully throughout the
streets of Israel untouched by any acts
of violence or hostility.

Paving a way of peace between Jew
and Gentile, Dr. Munroe led a team
comprised of some 30 Bahamians,
including pastors and church leaders
from Nassau; Jamaicans, Americans,
Europeans, Canadians, and other
nationalities, on a nine-day journey last
month to experience the virtue of Israel
that is not often expressed by the inter-
national media.

Even near to the time when many
Jews and residents of Israel are headed
into Tisha B'av in July and August,
which is described as a time of mourn-
ing because of the destruction of the
temple of Jerusalem, Mayor Katz was
able to share with Dr Munroe and the
team his hope of the nation being
rebuilt. “I hope to have in my future
peace between Israel and Lebanon,"
Mayor Katz said, "peace for the next
generation of my children, the children
of Metula, and the generation of the
children of Lebanon”.

Dr Munroe and summit attendees
visited Metula, the city directly on the
Lebanese border, on their fourth day of
travel around Israel. In his meeting

with Mayor Katz, Dr Munroe
expressed his sentiments about the
region and the ongoing Israeli crisis.
“For the past 23 years we have been
bringing groups to Israel. We brought
up to 850 in one group at a time, but we
haven't been here for about five years.
That is when some of the difficulties
happened here in Israel, and the people
became very afraid to travel,” Dr
Munroe said.

“This place (Metula) I think is an
important place for us because this is
the northern most part, and it is also
the part that is the most sensitive.
Standing in a spot where we can see
both sides of Lebanon and Israel in the
middle is the greatest testimony
because in the midst of what you call
enemies, there is safety.”

Mayor Katz told Dr Munroe that
positive community growth in Israel
would continue because he felt that his
government could not continue to put
money into tanks and airplanes, but
would instead invest in the well-being
of the Israeli people.

“I am deeply moved and pleased that



‘you, Dr Munroe, and Dr Roni Wexler

and your international team, have
defied the image painted by the media
throughout the West and come to this
land that belongs to ali people of faith
to encourage us as a people. My gov-
ernment is grateful and will always

From Tel Aviv to Nazareth, and from
Jerusalem to Metula, the group visited

In I Corinthians 12:12 we read that,
the body is a unit, though all its parts
are many, they form one body (NIV).

Christian faith as it describes the rela-
tionship of our Lord and Saviour Jesus

the Garden of Gethsemane, a baptism
service in the Jordan River, Masada,
the Dead Sea, Sea of Galilee, the home
town of Apostle Peter, James and John
- Capernaum, and the assumed place of
the empty tomb of Jesus Christ.

Apostle Leon Wallace, senior pastor
of the Voice of Deliverance Disciple
Centre Temple, who was a first-time
visitor to Israel, described his time on
the Sea of Galilee as "a dream come
true".

“It was almost unbelievable. It was a
dream come true. My entire trip with
Dr Myles Munroe and the Feast of
Pentecost to Israel was very spirit-filled
and enlightening. I certainly enjoyed
myself to the utmost. Every pastor in
the Bahamas should make it a necessi-
ty to visit this land as it makes your
message come alive,” he said.

Pastor Arlington
Christian Discipleship Ministries called
the trip “life-transforming” and was
thankful to Dr Munroe for making it
possible. “I will never be the same and
look forward to returning next year
with all the leaders I can bring,” Pastor
Rahming said.

During the visit, individuals were
able to see former bunkers and hide-
outs of the Hezbollah. In the midst of
the peace and joy described by many
team members, a solemn time experi-
enced was during the visit to the memo-
rial for the soldiers killed by an explo-
sive enemy attack. Team members

On the eighth day of the tour the trip
culminated with a celebration of
Shavuot, the Feast of Pentecost. Team
members visited the fields of Judea to
pick wheat to bring back to the Temple
Mount. They shared in a time of
singing and remembrance in a well-
known tradition of the historic faith.
While some members, including
Bahamians, travelled back home after
the ninth day of the Holy Land experi-
ence, some stayed yet another day in
Jerusalem. Bahamian traveller Nicole
Miller shared said of the uniqueness of
the tour experience of Kingdom

GOD'S



W HILE “1. was

writing this
passage Oy you are reading
today I would have been sitting
in the waiting room of the
Princes Margaret Hospital. I
was sitting there waiting on
word about my brother who
was supposed to have a second
surgery.

When one of the nurses came out I
was fearful of the news because of what
they might have been told, however it
was discovered that my brother was too
weak to under go the procedure.

He was admitted eventually. But while
sitting there I remembered the last time I
sat in the same place waiting while he was
in theatre. I reflected on the time he had
the first operation; when I asked myself
the question; "where does your help
come from?”

That question was answered by the
Psalmist, so again I looked to the Psalms
for answers, this time it was Psalms 139.

I don't know about you, but when I am
having a difficult day or having a rocky
start to my day or when I'm wondering
where God's presence is in my life, I turn
to the Psalms. When I want to be com-
forted, I open up the Psalms. After all,
this collection of writings reminds us that
we are God's children, and Psalm 139
tells us that we are fearfully and wonder-
fully made.

But on Tuesday I looked at Psalm 139
through a different lens. Rather than lis-
tening for what the Psalm had to say
about us, I search for what it says about
God and how God relates to us. I would
like for us to look at three distinct ways
God relates to us:

e God knows us intimately

° God created us with a purpose

e God never leaves us.

All three are given freely out of love
and generosity, in other words, we did
nothing to encourage them and we can do
nothing to deserve them. God knows us
intimately, God created us with a pur-
pose, and God never leaves us - all by
God's own initiative. So let's look at
these in turn.

1. First, God knows us intimately -
knows us better than a parent, a spouse,
and even ourselves. For emphasis, the
word “know” is used seven times in this
Psalm. God knows our words before they
are on our tongues; he knows all our
thoughts and actions. Now; is itjust me or
is that a bit unsettling?

If God knows us that well, that means

BY CLEMENT

Â¥ oS TY PRY
Rs iwi
JOTLIN,



God knows all the bad stuff, too. All the
stuff we're not proud of. I'm not sure if I
want to be that honest with God.

The Psalmist writes, “God hems us in,
behind and before.” The word “hem” can
mean not only protect, but it-can also
mean enclose or confine. Is that what

God is doing here: confining us?
Watching our every move in order to
pounce if we make a wrong turn?

God hems us in, in order to shelter and
protect-us. Even though God knows all
our weaknesses and sin, he accepts us and
welcomes us into his family. God knows
all the things we hide and all the stuff we
feel guilty about; even still, he loves us.

God's knowledge is, therefore, not a
threat, but a comfort. The Psalmist recog-



God hems us in, in
order to shelter and
protect us.



nizes how magnificent God's intimacy is.

' He writes, “God's knowledge is too won-

derful for me.”

God knows our secret fears, our strug- .

gles, and our needs. He knows our great-
est joys, our passions and our laughter.
His knowledge is so expansive that we
cannot understand it. But let us rejoice in
this knowledge rather than run from it.
Let us celebrate God's intimacy. After all,
the King of the universe has chosen to be
in relationship with us!

2. The second distinctive feature we see
about God is: God created us with a pur-
pose.

The Psalmist writes, “You knit me
together in my mother's womb.” In the
beginning, God created us, forming our
inward parts. Joy of joys - we are not a
random accident of biology: the colliding
of cells in the universe. We are the work
and will of the benevolent Creator, who
put care into each stitch. We were lov-
ingly made...and made with intention. We
are not left alone to drift tiroueh life aim-
lessly.

The Pealmist writes, “All tig sais






ordained for me were written in your
book.” Again, this part of the Psalm may
make us tense up a little. Ordained? The
thought of someone else being in control
of our lives frighteiis us. It sure scares
me...I'm the one who never liked group |
projects because I had to trust others to
do part of the work. I'm the one who
schedules out every hour of his day and
plans every meal for the week. But when

ability to stop fretting
it comes to God, we have to relearn how about life and just appre-
to trust.

His plan for our lives existed way ciate his Kj Nn g 4
before we did. For me, I confess, this is
not so easy. I am constantly worrying:
God, am I making the right decision, will
my brother get better, will my children
turn out OK as adults, and will I be able
to pay all of my bills on time?

Maybe you're asking some similar
questions: why is my marriage so rocky
right now? Where should my children go
to school? Am [ on the right path, God?
It's hard to find peace about these issues,
and trust God's judgment and timing, but
God communicates with us through many
means, for instance in visions and
through Scripture.

I find that when I am drifting off track
or am just unsure as to the next step,
someone usually reminds me of the pres-
ence of God in my life and in the world.
They communicate God's love and reas-
surance as I make decisions.

There is a friend of mine, Karen Rolle,
whenever I speak with her Iam ee
of the power of God's presence in
world and how, if we stick with God, te
never abandons us. She is always positive
and has an encouraging word. Jesus had
his twelve closest friends; the question we
need to ask ourselves is “who do we turn
to when we need. a reminder of God's
love and faithfulness?

Therefore, the Psalmist celebrates
God's purpose for human life. He con-
cludes that God's. foreknowledge is not
intimidating - but an amazing comfort
because of God's guiding hand.

The Psalmist writes, “How weighty (or
in other translations, how precious) to me
are your thoughts, O God! How vast the
sum of them! I try to count them, they are
more than the sand.”

The Psalmist is in awe of the idea that
God can know and care for and guide
every person so intimately. We must be
able to hear how the Psalmist is enjoying
this beautiful mystery.

I admire the Psalmist's ability to stop
fretting about life and just appreciate his
King. He says, “Wonderful are your
works; that I know very well.” Not only
does God know the Psalmist intimately,
but it seems the Psalmist also knows the
Lord. He has learned of God's mighty
acts and praises him for all of creation.
‘isHowoften do we ponder the-niysteries
of our God? How often do we just sit
with a Psalm and let it seep in? How often:



admire the Psaimist’s



do we write in our day planner: sit in won-
der and awe at God's majesty? Not often.

3. Fortunately for most of us, God is
not discouraged because the third rela-
tional characteristic is God's continual
presence. God is always with us, wanting
us to get to know him.

But wait, the caption in my Bible reads,
“The Inescapable God.” Do I always
want to spend all my time with God, even
when I fall short of his expectations? The
Psalmist writes, “Where can I go from
your spirit? Where can I flee from your
presence?”

We usually hear the word “flee” when
a criminal is fleeing the crime scene or
when an army is fleeing their enemy.
Sometimes I feel like a criminal fleeing
the scene - I think, “If I hide my sin,
maybe God won't see it.”
~ But God isn't some police force waiting
to attack. And he isn't an angry tyrant
handing down sentences from the sky.
Our Lord is the God of the Bible, the
God who created us and redeemed us out
of love. This is the God who sacrificed his
only Son for our sake. This is the God
who wants to be in relationship with us
despite our sin.

Well, in that case, we should not want

o flee. I want to find myself next to this
just and merciful God, the God who is
both lowly Servant and powerful King:
The God who reigns on high in majesty
and who died a shameful death on a
cross; This is our God, the God who is
always with us.

So when I left the hospital that day I
was sure that the God who knows every-
thing and is everywhere would look after
my bother - who was baptized into Christ,
who was altar boy, and who is humble and
giving and loving - he will be remembered
by God and He will decide what happens
to him.

When my brother was admitted to the
hospital again, I stood by his bed trying to
encourage him to pray, the only pray that
came to me was the “Our Father” prayer.
This _prayer sums up for us;why we need
to look to this majestic God - because this
all knowing God will take care of us.
