PM expects process
to be easier than

@ By NEIL HARTNELL
Tribune Business Editor

GOVERNMENT vill likely
begin efforts to privatise the
Bahamas Electricity Corporation
(BEC) in 2009, Prime Minister
Hubert Ingraham said, adding
that he expected the process to
‘be easier than the one involving

‘the Bahamas Telecommunica-
tions Company (BTC).

“BEC is a-much easier corpo-

. ration to privatise than BTC. It
has never had all of BTC’s bad
habits, never had the excess of
employees BTC has had,” Mr

. Ingraham said.

“BEC is probably going to be
the next one to be privatised. It is
almost beyond the capacity of the
state to continue to provide the

PM moves











ieeanen

kind of generation capacity that is

required for the operations of

BEC.”
The Prime Minister also
acknowledged that the multi-mil-

lion dollar subsidies handed out ~

by Government on an annual
basis to the likes of Bahamasair,
the Water & Sewerage Corpora-
tion and the Broadcasting Cor-
poration of the Bahamas was
“unaffordable on a continuing
basis.”

PM rejects claims

By PACO NUNEZ
Tribune News Editor

PRIME Minister Hubert
Ingraham has. rejected claims
that changes made to the tax

regime as part of the 2008/09 |
budget were in any way covert |

or deceptive.

Mr Ingraham said he consid-
ered the claims, made in an arti- |

cle in Monday’ s INSIGHT, to

be insulting — "because none of |

it is true."

The prime minister said the |

budget, which aimed at lessening

the impact of global economic }
challenges — was forthrightly |

presented in parliament.

"We operated in an open

forum. The budget is debated in

live on the radio and television. It is presented at the end of May,
it lays out there in documentary form all during the month of
June and comes into effect on the first of July. How it could then
be clandestine, or covert, or deceptive, escapes my under-

standing,” Mr Ingraham said.

The INSIGHT article claimed the tax hikes were deceptive,
based on the fact that they were not alluded to in the prime min-
ister’s Budget Communication and were not gazetted in the

newspapers.

A number of businesspersons claimed this threw their affairs
into chaos, as they were no longer sure what rates applied to

Bahamas could be testing ground for

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

THE Bahamas could be a testing
ground for the viability of various renew-
able energy initiatives, Environment Min-
ister Earl Deveaux said yesterday.

The government said it is actively seek-
ing to promote partnerships between
itself and private companies who are able
to offer alternative energy solutions, like
wind and solar power, for the Bahamas.

“We can use the Bahamas as a tem-
plate to explore all practical technolo-
gies and establish alternative energy
models,” Dr Deveaux said yesterday at a
renewable energy seminar.

As the Bahamas Electricity Corpora-
tion (BEC) struggles to meet the growing
demand for power, particularly in the
Family Islands, Minister of State for the
Environment Phenton Neymour said that
government “feels that there is an oppor-
tunity right at our fingertips to improve
the supply of energy in the Family Islands
and through New Providence using
renewable energy.”

Mr Neymour said government has
recently met with “a number” of compa-
nies from the United States who are
interested in forging business partner-

ships with the Bahamas in this poten-'

tially lucrative sector.
“One of the criteria of the National
Energy Policy is for us to set a goal for

the penetration or the amount of renew-
able energy that we provide. So we are
taking steps to meet with individuals who
provide renewable energy on a scale that
we need,” he said.

Mr Deveaux and Mr Neymour were
speaking at the United States govern-
ment-sponsored Caribbean Regional Sus-
tainable Energy High Level Seminar,
which took place at the Sheraton Cable
Beach resort in Nassau yesterday.

The event was organised in conjunc-
tion with the Organisation of American
States (OAS), the Inter-American Devel-
opment Bank (IDB) and the Inter-Amer-
ican Institute for Cooperation on Agri-
culture (IICA).

The conference drew Caribbean gov-
ernment ministers and officials, along

with officials from various US govern-
ment departments, multi-lateral organi-
sations and the private sector, to discuss
how the region can move towards greater
energy independence through exploiting

alternative energy sources like wind,.

water, sun, or geothermal power.

While world economies are suffering
from their dependence on oil, the price of
which is continually rising, island nations
in the Caribbean are particularly hard
hit.

In less than four years, the amount the
region is spending on oil imports has
risen by 370 per cent, Assistant Secretary
General of the Organisation of American
States Albert Ramdin said yesterday.

Addressing the opening ceremony of
the seminar, Dr Deveaux, along with

United States’ Ambassador to the
Bahamas Ned Siegei and Mr Ramdin,;
highlighted the many environmental and
economic risks associated with the con-
tinued use of oil as a primary source of
energy.

Dr Deveaux told those attending the
high level seminar that the Bahamas
“waits with baited breath for (their) rec-
ommendations” when it comes to creat-
ing a sustainable and environmentally-
friendly power supply.

“Despite heavy reliance on fossil fuels,
the Bahamas lacks any known
exploitable supply of conventional ener-
gy resources. This severe imbalance
between supply and demand puts our
nation in an extremely vulnerable state,”
he said. ;



renewable energy ideas — Minister

Ambassador Siegel said that rising oil
prices have precipitated a “tipping point”
in the debate over the use of alternative

energy sources versus continuing with |

the world’s current oil dependence.

“The cost of being totally dependent
on fossil fuels (has) gotten to an extent
where we cannot not afford to look at
these alternative energy and renewable
energy sources.”

Mr Ramdin added: “I hope that this
conference can convince and come up
with arguments to convince politicians
that it is wise to do something and it can
convince investors that it is good business
to invest in renewable energies.”

Dr Deveaux was optimistic that solu-
tions to the situation the Bahamas, and
the world, finds itself in, will be forth-
coming,

He referred to an article in ‘the June
edition of the respected international
magazine The Economist, which com-
pared an oncoming alternative energy
“boom” with the multi-billion dollar
information technology boom of the
1990s, which saw. the demand for and
supply of IT products and services sky-
rocket..

He said he believes that the speed with

. Which countries convert to using alter- '

native energy sources, like solar and
wind, “will be a lot faster than any tech-
nological advance the world has experi-
enced before.”

GOLDEN Isles MP Charles
Maynard criticized PLP chairman
and MP for Englerston Glenys
Hanna-Martin in the House of
Assembly yesterday.

Mr Maynard, who was answer-
ing Mrs Hanna-Martin on her
defence of the PLP’s record in
the handling of the Lynden Pin-
dling International Airport,
opened with a quote from the
Ministry of Education’s weekly
newsletter, stating that “convic-

tion is only worthy when backed

up by conduct.”

Upon hearing this, Mrs Han-
na-Martin jumped to her feet and
responded that if Mr Maynard

was suggesting that she was some-_

how insincere or not factual in
her presentation-then Mr, May-
nard should highlight the ‘areas



or not factual.

Mr Maynard answered, how-
ever, that his comments were
directed more toward West End
and Bimini MP Obie Wilchcombe
who had discussed the fact that
increases were coming to the air-

» port by user fees for passengers.

Mr. Maynard also questioned
why a monopoly was allowed to

exist for food services at LPIA
for decades. “She (Mrs Hanna-
Martin) spoke about the renam-
ing of the LPIA. Now I want to
put that into context, because that
was July 2006. And the govern-
ment at that day decided that they
wanted to do a cluster of things
around that time — to me I think
that was the beginning of their
election campaign.

“T say that because it was

rushed events, that were designed
to profile certain key individuals
from the PLP’s past. They
renamed the National Insurance
Building to the Clifford Darling
building. They decided to rename
the airport after Lynden Pindling.

I have no problem with that

either. Except, evendumb: me;

and I say dumb me. because J ain’t **

no aviation expert, but I know

one thing for sure, every single
airport in the world has a call sign,
and.in our case its NAS, and if
you want to change the name of
the airport you have to do more
than put a sign in front of it,” he
said. Mrs Hanna-Martin stood on
a point of order and told Mr May-
nard that he quite rightly
acknowledged that when it comes
to aviation he is “dumb”.

“The airport would continue
to be know as NAS even with the
renaming. The renaming process
is not effected by that. The
renaming process involves
processes such as the notice to
airmen, which was done, also the
relevant notices to international
civil aviation organizations. The

airport has appropriately been —

renathed concurrent with the act
itself, ? she saidy 0)

‘Tendency for
public officers
not to speak to
the press’

THERE is a general ten-
dency on the part of public
officers “not to make them-
selves available to the
press,” Prime Minister Ingra-
ham told The Tribune.

He said this is to some
extent the result of a politi-
cal culture that has devel-
oped in the Bahamas over
the years, “where politicians
have not taken too kindly to
public officers who speak
out.”

However, Mr Ingraham
said that the press should
have access to the head of
every government depart-
ment, “because we encour-
age them to speak.

“There is nothing secret
about this business — this is
public business,” he said.

Man charged —
in connection
with fatal
traffic crash

A MAN charged in con-
nection with a traffic acci-
dent, which claimed the life
of a woman in Long Island
last month, was arraigned in
the Magistrate’s Court yes: :
terday.

Tyrone Romer, 41, of Doc-
tor’s Creek, Long Island, has
been charged with killing in
the course of dangerous dri-
ving.

Romer was yesterday
charged in Magistrate’s
Court 6, Parliament Street,
before Magistrate Renee
McKay.

It is alleged that Romer at
or around 9.23pm on Friday,
June 27, drove a truck with
the license plate number T
792 north on Queens High-
way, Long Island, in a man-
ner dangerous to the public,
thereby causing the death of
Elizabeth Bowles.

According to initial
reports, Bowles, 47, the
country’s 20th traffic fatality,
died after being struck bya .
truck while cycling north
along Queens Highway
sometime around 9.30 pm on
June 27.

Bowles was taken to the
local clinic suffering from
head and chest injuries, but
died around 2.07 am the fol-
lowing day.

Romer pleaded not guilty
to the charge of killing in the
course of dangerous driving
and opted to have his case
tried in the Mapistiate’ s
Court.

He was granted bail in the
sum of $10,000 with two
sureties.

The case was adjourned to
October 6.

In brief |PM pledges to prosecute

corrupt Customs officers,

officials who break law

Ingraham asks the public
to report all complaints

@ By PACO NUNEZ
Tribune News Editor

PRIME Minister Hubert Ingra-
ham says his government will
prosecute all public servants who
break the law.

Responding to complaints
about corrupt Customs officers
printed in Monday’s INSIGHT,
Mr Ingraham admitted that
authorities have not handled the
problem correctly in the past.

“There Has been a reluctance
on the part of government to
prosecute persons engaging in
activities that are dishonest or
fraudulent, which includes a
minority of Customs officers.
That will change,” the prime min-
ister said. He asked members of
the public suffering intimidation
at the hands of rogue officers to
report the situation immediate-
ly, and “test whether or not the
government is willing to enforce
the anti-corruption laws — I think
they will find that we are.”

Mr Ingraham assured the pub-
lic that the identity of all com-
plainants will be kept secret. He
noted that this was the ‘practice
for dealing with reports of ille-
gality under the first FNM gov-
ernment, when the authorities
even offered rewards for infor-
mation on public servants who
accepted or solicited bribes.

The prime minister also point-
ed out that a Customs officer can
only be dishonest if somebody is
willing to pay him. “And the peo-
ple who would normally pay are
not ordinary persons who are just
bringing in a couple hundred dol-
lars worth of goods, because that
is not in their interest. Those who
pay would be big importers, and
over the years, some of them have
been caught and fined.”

Admitting that the Customs
Department is “archaic”, Mr
Ingraham said: “There are many
things to be done, we accept
that.”

To this end, the prime minister
said, the government is provid-
ing the Customs Department with

MAGISTRATE Renee McKay is expected to
make her ruling in the sexual harassment casé of
popular media personality Darold Miller on mee
tember 2, it was announced yesterday.

Mr Miller is accused of soliciting sexual favours from
a female GEMS 105.9FM employee between February
2 and March 22 of last year while he served as the com-

pany’s chief operating officer.

In a final attempt to prove his client’s innocence,
Mr Miller’s attorney Michael Kemp told the court
yesterday that defence believes that the virtual com-
plainant has been thoroughly discredited in the case.

Mr Kemp admitted that Mr Miller had been in a
position of authority over the virtual complainant,
but questioned the evidence that alluded to Mr
Miller offering her job benefits for sexual favours.

“significantly increased
resources,” including 50 new Cus-
toms officers, 25 new guards and
a number of support personnel.

He said: “They should begin
training soon. And hopefully we
are going to be able to deal with
the overtime at the airport for
Customs and Immigration; impact
upon our cost there, by introduc-
ing a shift system.

“These new people who are
being employed, they are

“So over a period of time, we
will get Customs to be the 24/7
operation it needs to be, and the
same thing will apply to immi-
gration.” i
Acting Comptroller of Customs
Anthony Adderley told The Tri-
bune that anyone who has a com-

plaint about Customs should .

report it to his office.

Mr Adderley pledged that he
will “vigorously” seek to address
all concerns, once sufficient evi-
dence is produced. He said the

article were “quite serious” and
that relatively few such reports

said, were unsure of what duty

resulted from the fact-that some

tion” of the tax structure during
the recent budget exercise was to

“J don’t imagine that some
Customs officers were happy with
the changes,” he said.



‘Mr Kemp told the court that the virtual com-

plainant herself testified that Mr Miller had not
promised her anything. Mr Kemp went on to criticise
the virtual complainant, calling her ungrateful.

“Could you imagine someone throwing out a life-
line to you and you drag them through the courts for
political reasons or for a deal,” Mr Kemp said.

Mr Kemp told the court that the virtual com-
plainant was used as a tool by those who were

opposed to his client, noting that the virtual com-

told the court.

plainant herself had told the court that the case had
gone too far. Mr Kemp also questioned whether the
complainant’s distress had, in fact, been genuine.

Magistrate McKay adjourned the
matter to September 2 at 10am, stating that she will
give her ruling at that time.

New funding scheme for airport

THE BEST news coming out of the
House of Assembly yesterday before mem-
bers broke for the summer recess — return-
ing on Wednesday, September 17 — is that
the dead hand of government has at last
been lifted from the development of Lyn-
den Pindling International Airport.

In exchange for the Canadian company,
which has a 30-year airport lease to manage
the Nassau Airport Development Compa-
ny (NAD), being allowed to decide the
user fee structure at the airport, govern-
ment will no longer have to subsidise the
airport’s costs.

Over the past seven years this subsidy’

has totalled $45 million. In future it will
be the airport users who will pay for the air-
port — not government.

The Bahamas’ international airport had
no chance of ever raising its standards as
long as politicians had a say in its manage-
ment,

The airport has always been crippled by
too much political interference — too many
“Bros” who couldn’t say no if one of their
constituents needed a job.

These constituents — few of whom qual-
ified for this type of employment — always
got dumped onan already overstaffed air-
port.

Now airport user charges will be deter-
mined by the NAD based on the cost of the
airport development.

It was either this, or plans for the creation
of one of the best airports of the region
would have collapsed.

The Bahamas government could not
have afforded to underwrite the debt with-
out putting a heavy tax burden on the
Bahamian people.

About $430 million is needed to furid
the terminal project and refinance the cur-
rent debt, which totals $80 million.

And so the Bahamas has wise lenders to
thank for placing government in a posi-
tion where it had no alternative but to
make an equally wise decision — amend
the Airport Authority Act, which it did

yesterday at its final sitting for the sum-

mer.

“The purpose of this amendment is to
limit the current discretion in the setting of
fees at the LPIA by the Airport. Authori-
ty,” Mr Ingraham told the House.

“This limitation of the discretion in fee

setting is viewed as a precondition to the.

successful completion of the non-guaran-
teed financing for the airport redevelop-
ment project.

“The lenders,” said Mr Ingraham, “have

' indicated that they are unwilling to lend

substantial sums which the Airport Author-
ity will be borrowing if the setting of rates
is going to be dependent upon the exercise
of discretion by a minister of the govern-
ment, who is subject to all of the pressures
that politicians come under from time to
time.

“And,” continued the Prime Minister,
“they (the lenders) had as their background
what happened when the Airport Author-
ity gave out a management contract and the

. length of time it took the government to

settle upon the fees which they could
charge.

“And they were unwilling to place them-
selves in such a position ever again.

“If we, therefore, wish to borrow their
money, this is the condition they require.”

As a result the $450 million to redevel-
op the airport is to be funded exclusively
from revenue made at the airport. .

However, regulations will be incorpo-
rated into the commercial contracts
between NAD and the Airport Authority
to set out principles that NAD must take
into consideration when determining the
level of airport charges for any particular
period.

NAD also will be required to notify the

Airport Authority at least once a year of

any pending change — or no change — in

airport charges.

Several Opposition members seemed
concerned that NAD could price LPIA
out of business if it were allowed to deter-
mine the airport’s fare structure. -

That is something that government’s do,
but not private enterprise.

The Canadians who now manage NAD
know only too well that to have higher
user rates than airports of the region would

“put them out of business.

Private enterprise never knowingly
makes decisions that will cripple itself — it

leaves that to politicians who generally put —
. their political survival before the country’s

bottom line.

FNM must be
aware business
as usual will
not cut it

‘EDITOR, The Tribune.

Everyone who resides in the
Commonwealth of The Bahamas
or who would read and listen to
our news media are more than
aware that Ortland H Bodie Jr, is
a long time advocate for and sup-
porter of the Rt Hon Prime Min-
ister, Hubert Alexander Ingra-
ham, MP, PC.

I make absolutely no apologies
for this, despite my occasional
public disagreement over the
direction in which he is seeking to
take the nation. While Mr Ingra-
ham may appear to be a demi-
god to many, I hold no such false
and patently sacrilegious position.

Yes, he is gifted beyond mea-
sure but after several years of
being in the proverbial saddle, it
may well be that the PM is either
not aware that the middle class
Bahamian, et al, is catching eter-
nal hell right here in our beloved
nation.

There are times, in my consid-
ered opinion, when the PM acts
and behaves as if he is a man

from Mars and not a mere mortal :

who lives in The Bahamas. A
measure of apparent insensitivity
and boorishness comes across,
palatably, far too often.

Take for instance the rapidly
increasing cost of living index.
Gasoline for one’s motor vehicle
or business machines is beyond
the reach of many due to high
prices. Our roads and national
infrastructure continue to be ina
disgraceful state of repair.

Check out East Street, from
North to South. Check out
Robinson Road from Blue Hill
Road up to Soldier Road. Check
out the road works down at Milo
Butler Highway which seems to
be taking a generation to com-
plete. Clarence Bain Building is
an eyesore. The Rodney Bain
Building, a national asset, remains
rotting on Parliament Street.

ing, food and other basic necessi-
ties are off the chain and there is
no relief in sight. The FNM has
long regarded itself as a caring
and compassionate government
but, pray tell me, where is the
promised relief that it and it’s
leaders held out to a trusting
Bahamian electorate?

Parliament will soon adjourn
for the summer holidays (some
two to three months) and we have
not heard a single word from the
PM and his administration as to
exactly what sort of relief will he
and his team offer'the people of
the nation over the short and the
long haul. How come? When Par-
liament reconvenes will gasoline
still be under B$6.00 or will it be
in the range of B$8.00 to B$10.00
per gallon?

When will the FNM adminis-

.tration require that all red plated

cars be parked in the govern-
ment’s holding areas on holidays
and weekends? Who pays for the
gasoline-and diesel used by civil
servants on such days, while doing
their personal and family busi-
ness?

Another bone of contention is‘

the seemingly endless spending
of millions of dollars of our mon-
ey to upgrade and improve
telecommunications services at
BaTelCo, if we are supposed to
be privatising it within months?
Are these upgrades and their

_ costs going to be factored in

whenever Blue Water or anyone
else were to purchase BaTelCo?

By the way, who are the prin-
cipals in Blue Water and are there

any Bahamian individuals or busi-

ness houses which are a part of

‘that consortium? If so, who are

they and are they connected polit-

ically? As a Bahamian taxpayer, I

_ demand and will ensure, through

the courts if necessary, that there
is full and frank disclosure to the
people of The Bahamas, no more,
no less.

People always cuss out
Bahamians for not cultivating the .
habit of saving in local banks but
they never opine as to why there .
is a marked reluctance of our peo-
ple to place their hard earned
funds in the same.

Interest rates in this country,
on savings and fixed deposits, are

‘a national disgrace and a joke, to

say the least. The average bank

pays 2 to 3 per cent on savings

accounts. For fixed deposits, one
may get 5 or 5 per cent depending
on the size of the same. The
banks will then lend out our funds
at 15 per cent or more per annum
and the beat goes on. .

Mr Ingraham means well, I am
sure, but good intentions are sim-

’ ply not enough to cut it, from a

consumer point of view. Where
are The Price Control and The
Rent Control Boards?

Since May, 2007 not a single
business or store has been pub-
licly charged with breaching the
regulations of these two obsolete
boards. In fact, who are on the
various statutory boards and
when were the members appoint-
ed? When will the national ener-
gy policy be announced, if ever?

‘What about LNG? What is the
hold up? What did the DPM
agree to during the recent Cari-
com meeting with the British For-
eign Office? The FNM and its
erstwhile leader must be aware,
by now, that business as usual will
no longer cut it. To God then,
The Great Yahweh, in all things,
be the glory.

Transparency and fairness

EDITOR, The Tribune.

I AM concerned that what
should be a transparent and fair
process following the call for pro-
posals by BEC for Proposals for
Alternative Energy means that
certain parties are in discussions
on an unrelated'‘matter — LNG,
which discussions could prejudice

transparency of the process of this:

RFP from BEC.

Mr Samson of AES seems to
think that his appearing on Talk
Show A-B-C-D and being inter-
viewed is the way to go to get the
concessions, etc, they have been

I ask the chair, attorney Got-

. their opinion AES has breached

any line of fairness in the terms
and conditions of the RFP for
Alternative Energy.

Mr Samson is now talking
about wind and other energy
forms outside of LNG which
clearly indicates AES has gone
considerably beyond their previ-
ous discussions. Government
should until the BEC RFP is con-
cluded stop any discussions with
AES if transparency and fairness
will prevail.

that this is dead on arrival.

found it to be uneconomical. I do
accept that unfortunately the US

in brief BEM leadership expresses sadness

over deaths of husband and wife

THE leadership at Bahamas
Faith Ministries (BFM) has
expressed sadness over the deaths
of Bloneva and Asa Bethel, the
husband and wife who died ina
murder and subsequent suicide.

“While we all may have our
thoughts as to what and how such
a tragic event could happen, the
truth is that there is no simple
explanation to any of this and no
doubt there is historical informa-
tion we may never know,” said
the BFM in a statement late on
Tuesday on behalf of Senior Pas-
tor Myles Munroe and Pastor

Richard Pinder.

This statement came hours
after Mr Bethel was found dead
hanging in a shower at Her
Majesty’s Prison.

It is believed that he committed
suicide while on remand at the
prison.

Mrs Bethel, 41, was found
stabbed to death by a steak knife
on July 15 at the couple’s Cox
Way apartment off East Street
south.

Her husband was charged with
killing her.

She had severe and extensive
knife wounds to her right arm and
shoulder.

While expressing sadness over

electrical shortage’

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

FREEPORT - Police believe
that an electrical shortage may
have been the cause of a fire that
destroyed a major foodstore in
Marsh Harbour, Abaco, on Tues-
day.

Chief Supt Basil Rahming,
press liaison officer for the north-
ern region, reported that
Maxwell’s Supermarket on Pow-
erline Road sustained damage
estimated at “several million dol-
lars.”

. Mr Rahming said firefighters
and crime scene officers in Abaco
conducted an investigation into
the fire, which started late Mon-
day evening.

According to reports, a police
officer was on mobile patrol in
Marsh Harbour at about 10.15pm
when he saw a fire blazing in the

- eastern section of the foodstore.

' Mr Rahming said the officer
alerted the volunteer fire brigade.
The fire was brought under con-
trol around 5am on Tuesday.

He said investigations were car-
ried out to determine the cause.

“Scenes-of-crime officers, along
with firefighters, examined the

smoldering remains and deter-
mined that the fire started in an
eastern generator room, possibly
as a result of an electrical short-
age,” said Mr Rahming.

Mr Rahming said the building,
owned by Chad Albury of Marsh:
Harbour, was fully insured.

As a consequence of the fire,

more than 40 people are now out
of a job and many of Abaco’s
communities have lost their pri-
mary grocery supplier.

Residents are predicting that
the loss of Maxwell’s will have a
devastating effect on the island’s
economy.

“People were already experi-
encing difficulties finding basic
things like milk, bread and cheese.
The shelves of the foodstores are

often empty. It was bad enough‘

before, but now with Maxwell’s
gone, it’s going to be even worse,”
said Abaco resident Julian Lock-
hart.

there are limitations to what any
outreach organisation can do in
carrying out its functions.

“The results of our ministry’s
work are evident in the countless
success stories among the young
and the old in our community,”
said BFM. “However, like any
other community organisation,
church, ministry, private or public
company, we are quite aware of
our limitations as to how much
and how far we can go in attempt-
ing to meet the needs of people
who come to us.”

The BFM further said : “We

instances there are situations over
which we have no control or can
take no responsibility for as it

decisions of individuals and must
depend on the wisdom and good
judgment of each in facing their
life’s challenges.”

Referring to the Bethels, the
BFM said that it wished to ensure
“everyone that (the church) did
all in (its) power and God’s grace
to serve them.

In the wake of the death of the
couple, BFM advises couples not
to wait until martial difficulties

reach a crisis point.

Instead, the church said that
those involved should seek help
from a pastor, counselor or other
social service professional.

The BFM also said that indi-
viduals should not let “pride” pre-
vent them from seeking such
help.

“May we all use the incident
as an opportunity to seek to be a
part of the healing to relation-
ships in our nation.”

SEVERE unemployment is driving peo-
ple from the countryside into Haiti's over-
crowded cities and ultimately out of the
country in search of work, as families who
have relatives working abroad are consid-
erably less impoverished than others.

There is no industry in Port-de-Paix and
over 80 per cent of the city's 117,000-
strong population is unemployed.

Men and women can only draw an
income by creating work for themselves,
that is by driving a tap-tap (taxi service via
scooter or modified pick-up truck), ferry-
ing goods in.a wheelbarrow, sifting sand
by the riverbed to sell, or working as
street vendors.

Such limited options mean families are
faced with the harsh reality of needing to
escape Haiti in order to earn an income
tnat will support their loved ones.

Former plantain farmer Georges
Renaud gave up his farm in the outskirts
of Port-de-Paix when he could no longer
find people to work on the land because
so many people moved into the cities,
where they found no relief.

“They barely keep their heads above
water," Mr Renaud said.

"There are no jobs so you have to make
your own job.

"Then you'll have a family with five or
six children and one person working. °
Things are getting worse and worse every



day."

He said it is only the families who have
a relative working in the Bahamas or the
United States who are able to earn
enough to house their families in the cities
and provide them with a sustainable
income. ~

One woman, whose husband moved to
Nassau five years ago, survives by selling
rice and juice he sends her, and has been
able to build a relatively comfortable
home for herself.

Similarly, Lavaud Destinas, a cook who
served the Grace Church Short-Term Mis-
sions Team, survives on the salary her hus-
band earns in the Bahamas.

She moyed to Nassau with him in 1982
and had her two children there, but four
years later Bahamian immigration officials
caught up with the Haitian mother of two,
and she fled back to Haiti in fear ot being
deported.

Madame Lavaud now sees her tusband
only when he visits her in Port-de-Paix for
about a month each year.

She sees her Bahamian children, now
aged 23 and 25, even less.

"Because of the situation in Haiti, if he
stays here he won't find a living, so to
make a living,-we need to get out," she
said. é

"And because he is working and he
sends me money he has earned in the
Bahamas, I am able to survive here, and
my life is more comfortable than many
people here who are starving,” she said.

EDUCATED young men in Port-de-Paix are
tempted to illegally emigrate to the United
States or the Bahamas simply to find work.

They have heard the horror stories of people
who do not make the journey, of the boats over-
crowded with migrants sinking in Bahamian
waters and the number of people who have
drowned.

Many people in Port-de-Paix have lost rela-
tives on such journeys, and yet they are not
deterred.

Louiseize Bersilien has been to Nassau twice
by boat, paying 7,000 Haitian dollars or
US$1,000 for the nine-day voyage, only to be
turned away by Bahamian immigration officials
when he reached land.

But that did not deter the 'tap-tap' scooter
driver from attempting to escape Haiti yet again.
"I don't like the trip but I would do it again,"

he said. :

"[ just want to work, that is the only reason I
was going."

Treguste Wilfred, 25, said he would sail to
Nassau in a matchbox if he had one.

"Even if it will sink I would do it," he said.

"I deny miy life because I have misery in Haiti.
Why should I stay here?"

Mr Wilfred has no wife or children, and ;
moved to Port-de-Paix from his parents’ home
in the countryside to find work, but soon
learned there is no employment, even in the
cities. ,

In order to earn enough to survive, Mr Wil-
fred charges people to ferry loads across town in
his wheelbarrow, making $10 or $20 Haitian dol-
lars a day (less than $3 US), which he says is
enough for him to buy food, but not enough to

EVVARD

save for a better life elsewhere.

"The only reason I would like to go there (the
Bahamas), is to work," he said. "I would do any-
thing, just to have a job."

Benedic Balthasar, a 32-year-old father of
three, said he would leave Haiti if that is what it
takes to find employment, but he would prefer
to stay in Port-de-Paix with his family and have
the opportunity to work.

The educated father used to work as a marine
biologist but no longer has an employer or the
equipment to do what he was trained to do.

Mr Balthasar cannot afford to send his chil-
dren, aged six, nine and 11, to school, and
spends his days wandering around, looking for
ways of making enough money to feed his fami-
ly.
Without work, Mr Balthasar relies on friends
who are working to provide his family with food.

"If in any way you can help us J would like
you to help us," he pleaded.

"My children's future is dependent on God
now because | am not able to help them."

Although he has friends in the Bahamas, Mr
Balthasar is not keen to make the voyage him-
self.

"T am not interested in going illegally," he
said. ,

"If I found an organisation who would take
me, I would go, but it would be better to stay
here and have help, not just for me, but for all
the people."

Herard John, 18, agreed he does not want to
be a runaway, he simply wants a chance in life.

Herard's cousin has lived in Nassau for ten
years, but he has not had the opportunity to go
himself.

"Tt must be wonderful," he said.

"No fight like in Haiti — we fight with the gov-
ernment, fight with crime, fight to survive."

removed and the accused sat alone in the
prisoner’s dock dressed in tan pants and a
cream coloured shirt with multi-coloured
stripes. He was quiet and sat still awaiting
the magistrate.

Chief Magistrate Roger Gomez, upon
arrival, read the murder charge to the accused
who was accompanied by his mother. His
only reply was “yes, sir” when asked if he
understood the charge.

Mr Gomez informed the boy that a pre-
liminary inquiry will be held to determine if
there is enough evidence for him to be tried
before the Supreme Court.

He was then remanded in custody pending
the preliminary inquiry, scheduled for Sep-
tember 2. There are 23 witnesses listed on the

court docket in relation to this matter.

Mr Wilson, a 32-year-old Jamaican, was
killed at Gregory House apartment complex
during the early hours of June 3. His body
was found on the second floor of the two-
storey complex in a pool of blood in front of
a neighbour’s door.

The deceased came up to the second floor
— his apartment was on the first floor — seek-
ing assistance for his wounds. Neighbours
were initially hesitant to open the door. How-
ever, they called police for assistance and
eventually came outside to see Mr Wilson in
a pool of blood.

The victim was taken to nearby Princess
Margaret Hospital where he was pronounced
dead. Mr Wilson’s death was classified by
police as the country’s 31st murder of the
year.

Prime minister

moves amendment

to the Airport
Authority Act

FROM page one

Under current Bahamian
law, the Airport Authority,
with the consent of the Minis-
ter responsible, is allowed to
determine the Airport charges
from time to time.

However this limitation,
Prime Minister Ingraham said
is an essential “pre-condition”
to the successful undertaking
of a non-governmental guar-
antee loan to undertake the
extension works at LPIA.

“The lenders have indicated
that they are unwilling to lend
substantial sums which the
Airport Authority will be bor-
rowing if the setting of rates is
going to be dependent upon
the exercise of discretion by
a minister of the government,
who is subject to all of the
pressures that politicians come
under from time to time.

“And they had as their
background what happened
when the Airport Authority
gave out a management con-

tract and the length of time it
took the government to settle
upon the fees which they
could charge.

“And they were unwilling
to place themselves in such a
position ever again. If we
therefore wish to borrow their
money, this is the condition
they require,” Mr Ingraham
said.

The cost of the LPIA Rede-
velopment Project is estimated
at $450 million and is to be
funded exclusively from rev-
enue derived from the airport.

This development Mr Ingra-
ham highlighted does not

require a government guaran- -

tee, and will not require any
tax dollars to pay for it.

A significant portion of the
Nassau Airport Development
Company (NAD)’s revenues
is derived from aeronautical
fees such as landing, and air-
craft parking fees, passenger
facility charges and other fees
applied directly to air carri-
ers, aircraft operators and pas-

sengers.

“The passenger facility fees,
which was implemented last
year, is now $15 for interna-
tional travel, and the fee for.
domestic travel is now $5.
Those fees were set in March
or April 2007,” Mr Ingraham
said.

These fees which NAD
impose currently exclude secu-

‘rity fees, which are collected
to offset the cost of security
services provided by the Air-
port Authority.

“T previously told Parlia-
ment that it was the intention
of the government to bring
security services under the
same umbrella as the man-
agement of the airport and I
expect that, that will be done
not long from now,” he said.

In amending the Airport
Authority Act to allow the
Airport Authority the power
to charge fees, Mr Ingraham
said that the government is
unwilling to give them that
authority without some “con-
ditionality”.

These conditions, Mr Ingra-
ham said, will be procedures
that the Airport Authority
must follow prior to any
approval of any increase in
fees.

“These Regulations or pro-
visions will also be incorpo-
rated into the commercial con-
tracts between NAD and the
Airport Authority and would
set out principles which NAD
will have to take into consid-
eration when determining the
level of Airport Charges for
any particular period of time.
NAD would also, be required
to.notify the Airport: Aasthor-
ity at least once a year of any
pending change or if there will
be no change in airport
charges or the implementa-
tion of any new charge,” he
said. :

The principles that would
be taken into account would
include:

e International Standards
(ICAO’s Policies on Charges

-for Airports and Air Naviga-
tion Systems)

e A comparison of charges
of similar size and level-of-ser-
vice airports in the Caribbean
region and Florida.

Additionally, the amount of
the charges, as determined by
NAD, should be such that the
airport charges in combina-
tion with all other airport rev-
enues shall be sufficient to:

e fund operating and capital
expenditures including fund-
ing of a major maintenance
reserve account,

e generate sufficient rev-
enues for debt service,

e fund debt service reserve
and other required reserve
accounts,

e provide an agreed return,
if any, to the shareholder,
which is now the government
of the Bahamas.

NAD also will be required
to disclose publicly through
newspaper advertisements
and directly to impacted air
carriers a notification of any
intent to change the amount
or application of an airport
charge or the introduction of a
new airport charge.

This airport notification
charge would have to disclose:

e the rationale of the pro-
posed increase or changes,

° it must be issued at least
180 days prior to the proposed
effective date,

¢ it must invite comments
on such proposed changes
from members of the public
and from air carriers,

¢ it will also have to consult
with the impacted air carriers
to discuss the proposed
changes to the airport charges.

NAD would also be
required to provide a response
directly to any comments
received in response to the
proposed increases on its web-
site.

Only once this process is
completed would the Airport
Authority be obliged to con-
sider any increases proposed
by NAD for aeronautical fees.

Firm holds meeting —

with community over
proposed development

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

FREEPORT — Cavalier Con-
struction this week met with mem-
bers of the Hope Town commu-
nity to discuss its proposal to build
a high-end second home develop-
ment on one the island’s cays.

The company is expected to
submit an Environmental Impact
Assessment (EIA) to the govern-
ment and to the Hope Town local
government officials for the Island
Club project on Joe Cay.

In keeping with the govern-
ment’s desire for public consulta-
tion, Cavalier held a preliminary
public meeting last week at the
Hope Town Harbour Lodge.

A large number of residents
and second home owners attend-
ed the meeting and expressed
their concerns about the develop-
ment at Joe Cay.

They were concerned about the
number of mangroves that would
be affected, the size of the boat
basin for the owners’ docks, the
scope of the dredging to be done,
and the planned waste system.
There were also concerns
expressed about the appearance
of the project, and about main-
taining the “quaintness” of the
island.

Cavalier Construction said it
believes that the small 19-home
development project on Joe Cay is

_in keeping with the government’s
desire to build small, yet compat-
ible, projects in the Family Islands.

Vernon Wells, the developer’s
deputy managing director and
owner of a home Hope Town,
said his company plans to build
second homes that fit into the
‘lifestyle of Hope Town.

“Hope Town is a beautiful, idyl-
lic location for a small develop-
ment”, he said. :

During the meeting, chairman
of Cavalier Richard Wilson,
explained the concept of the
development, the estimated time
line of the project, and the com-
pany’s building history.

Ian Fleming, of Bruce LaFleur
Architects, gave a brief overview
‘of the’ design project; iticludin
the: ay6utiittome plans, ari
landscape design using native
plants while assimilating their
design to match the Hope Town
island style. He also unveiled the
first set of conceptual plan alter-
natives.

Environmental consultants for
the project Michelle Bethell of
Bethell Environmental and Keith
Bishop of Islands By Design will
work on the EIA for Joe’s Cay.

They are both approved to do
work in the Bahamas by the gov-
ernment through the BEST
(Bahamas Environment, Science
and Technology) Commission.

The developers and consultants
viewed a mangrove video that had

been arranged by the residents to
help illustrate some of their con-
cerns.

The developers said they will
take into account the concerns of
the residents. They assured the
residents that many of the con-
cerns will be reviewed during the
EIA process and during the
review of project alternatives.

“We felt the night went well,”
said Mr Wilson. “The full time
residents and second home own-
ers had some very valid concerns
that will be addressed in the EIA
study that we are due to com-
mence.

“We are excited about this pro-
ject but we are mindful that we

must respect the locals while also
building a sellable development,”
he said.

Cavalier Construction is well
known in the Bahamas for build-
ing high-end homes throughout
the islands. They have also built
some of the country’s largest pro-
jects, including the Savoie Resi-
dence at the Abaco Club, Bayroc
Condos in New Providence, and
the Atlantis Convention Centre
on Paradise Island, among oth-
ers.

Cavalier has also developed
three projects themselves, includ-
ing Lyford Place, Harbour Breeze,
and the Pineapple Fields in
Eleuthera.

‘well why are you raising this
rate here, why is this so?' and
you answer the question and
so people are edified as to
what you are doing. But that
didn’t happen. The opposition
was quite lazy, quite frankly,
and the merchant class didn’t
do much about it either.

“T have said over and over
again that in places like Bar-
bados and Jamaica, when the
budget is presented, the
accountant firms put out a
paper or the private sector
group puts out a paper, either
critiquing or pointing out to
people what the budget will
do, et cetera. In the Bahamas,
we don’t do such things,” Mr
Ingraham said.

He noted that strictly speak-
ing, newspapers need only be
used as the official gazette
when government feels it is
necessary, as the House is the
real gazette. "So the question
about not disclosing it is total-
ly bogus, totally untrue."

According to Mr Ingraham,
the changes were never con-
scious effort to increase tax-
es, but rather part of an effort
to “rationalise” a confusing
tax regime which was open to
abuse. :

He said: "I gave examples
when J spoke, I gave exam-
ples of some goods that would
go-up by three per cent (from
42 to 45 per cent) and some
that would go down by two
per cent (from 17 to 15 per
cent), and I said that if the
same amount of goods came
in over the year, the net effect
would be an increase of $5
million in revenue.

"I talked about dealing with
things like furniture: if it came
in for a house it had one rate,
if it came in for an office it
had another rate — that was
foolish. I talked about bitu-
men for roads, which if it
came in to tar the road it had
one duty rate, and if it came in
for another (reason) it had
another rate.”

Mr Ingraham said that gov-
ernment determined that a
number of concessions were
needed to offset the effects of
the global economic downturn
and rising oil prices on those
in the Bahamas who were
being hardest hit.

The budget was therefore
crafted to reduce the cost of
living for ordinary people, to
promote energy saving devices
and to provide assistance to
those who want to refinance
their homes or consolidate
mortgage debts.

“A number of people are
hurting, and we also wanted
to provide assistance to first
time homeowners, and we
wanted to provide real prop-

erty tax exemptions for people

who are buying a home for
the first time, and we wanted
to impact upon the cost of
building materials,” Mr Ingra-
ham said. “We wanted to

make sure that BEC did not
pass on the full impact of the

‘increase of energy products

on the surcharge, we wanted
to rationalise thé duties to
reduce the opportunity for
Customs officers to exercise a
discretion and make a choice
as to which rate an item would
be charged at (see Customs
story, page 3).”

During the rationalisation
exercise, he said, the govern-

_ment found a few items which

were inconsistent with their
categories, and therefore more
substantial changes were
made.

He gave the example of
motor oil, which went from 27
to 45 per cent.

‘He said the goods most
impacted were: vehicles; ciga-
rettes, wood furniture, elec-
trical appliances, plastic goods
and beverages.

He added: “The airport,
which no one has complained
about yet, is where the hefty
increase took place, because
baggage did not pay stamp
tax. And when we did the
rationalisation exercise, we
said it does not matter
whether you have a television

shipping company) Betty K,
or at the airport, you will pay

ey

the same rate. . . This would
have taken some items up as
much as 10 per cent. But many
items would have been low-
ered, also."

Mr Ingraham added that
considering the many cuts and
concessions made, the budget
will either turn out to be “rev-
enue neutral” or result in a
loss.

"On balance we felt that we
had done a wonderful thing
for the Bahamas and ordinary
people would benefit most.
And those who would pay
more would be persons who
are better off than ordinary
folks, who are going to buy a
desk for their house, and
would have gotten a low rate
of duty, because they said it
would be for the house and
not for the office.

“We thought that they
ought to pay the same thing,”
he said.

Asked to account ot the
outrage from businesspersons,
Mr Ingraham said: “People
expect free-bees; they believe
we are able to pull out of the

" sky all of these things and give -

Bay Street this vitalisation
thing without any Customs
duty, give the homeowners
this, give the real property tax
that, reduce the food cost,
construction costs, BEC, and
say, ‘Oh, that’s wonderful, that
doesn't cost me anything'."

He added: "What one
would hope in a developed
society, as the Bahamas ought
to be, agencies like the Cham-
ber of Commerce would act .
as a trade representative for
their members, and when the
government produces the bud-
get at the end of May, that
they would themselves go
through it, and inform their
various members as to the
impact it is likely to have upon
the business they are engaged
in. They and the opposition.

"What we have done has
provided substantial relief for
people, for children, for school
lunches, for vegetables, for
healthy lifestyles.”

July 21. Both men pleaded not
guilty to all charges. Gibson also
pleaded not guilty to threats of a
death charge. It is alleged that
he unlawfully threatened
woman police Constable 2895

Inspector Ercell Dorsette told
the court that the men are
alleged to have been found in
possession of 733 pounds of
marijuana. The discovery was
reportedly made near Stuart's
Cove by officers from the
Lyford Cay Police Station while
on patrol. According to initial
police reports, the officers, while
in the area around 1 am,
observed a suspicious sports util-
ity vehicle parked near the
shoreline. Upon approaching
the vehicle, two men reportedly
fled the SUV into nearby bush-
es. The officers. immediately
called for assistance and
searched the SUV, discovering
24 bails of marijuana. Upon fur-
ther search of the area, the two.
men were reportedly appre-
hended and taken into police
custody.

Gibson and Smith were both

New chief executive

officer at Butler Group

GRAND Bahama - Robert “Robbie” Butler,
younger brother of Jeffrey B Butler Sr, has joined
the Butler Group of Companies as its chief executive
officer. Robbie Butler joins his older sibling, who
serves as chairman, to run the Butler Group of
Companies, which comprises Butler’s Specialty
Foods and the Irish Pub Limited, dba Shenanigan’s
Irish Pub and the Harbour Room Restaurant. Both
of these restaurants are located in Port Lucaya.

Butler’s Specialty Foods has been in business on
Grand Bahama for 25 years.

It is a distributor, wholesaler and full-line grocer
serving Freeport’s finest restaurants and hotels, and
carries the largest selection of quality international
health and gourmet foods on the island.

In his new capacity, Robbie Butler will bring to
the table over 25 years experience in sales within the
food and liquor business, carrying on the tradition of
his grandfather Henderson Butler, the founder of
Butler and Sands liquor stores.

These experiences will guide him in the expansion
of Butler’s Specialty throughout the island of Grand
Bahama and the Family Islands.

When asked how he felt about joining the family
business, he said: “I look forward to working with my
brother for the further expansion of Butler’s and to
create an even higher standard for the people of
Grand Bahama.

“Over the next several months it is our intention

to increase our product line while doing our best to.

maintain our high level of quality service. We will do

Royal Oasis Resott |
is still dormant
almost two years
after purchase

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

FREEPORT - IT has been
almost two years since the $30-
million purchase of the Royal
Oasis Resort in Freeport, and
the new owners still remain very
vague about the timeline for
renovating and reopening the
resort property.

The resort, which once pro-
vided employment for over
1,000 Bahamians, lays dormant
and deteriorating, near one of
Freeport’s premier tourist
attractions — the International
Bazaar.

Harcourt Development, an
Irish-based development com-
pany, purchased the property in
November 2007.

At the time, the company
announced that it would make a
significant capital investment to
improve the hotel and its facili-
ties to create a high quality
tourist destination.

The Tribune attempted to
reach executives at Harcourt
Development in Freeport on
Tuesday for an update on the
start of renovations and the
reopening of the Royal Oasis,
however, no one returned our
calls up to press time.

Royal Oasis was the major
lifeblood of Freeport’s econo-
my. When the resort closed in
2004 following extensive hurri-
cane damage, the island lost
one-third of its room invento-
ry.

This has affected tourist
arrivals to the island. And the
once bustling International
Bazaar, with its maze of about
80 shops, is dead. Only a small
number of merchants and straw
vendors have managed to keep
their businesses open.

The straw market at Goom-
bay Park, which is situated at
the back of the resort, is-non-
existent.

Harcourt Development con-
siders itself to be one of Ire-
land’s most successful privately
owned property development
companies.

According to the company, it

REQUIRED

is reportedly involved in a wide-
range of projects across the
globe from Latvia to Las Vegas.

Their projects include a busi-
ness park in Latvia, an interna-

tional financial services centre.

in the Channel Islands, the
largest chain of shopping cen-
tres in Ireland, the Titanic Quar-
ter waterfront development in
Belfast, Northern Ireland, and
an entire residential village in
Las Vegas, among others.
Grand Bahama residents are
curious as to what is taking the
developers so long to begin the
much anticipated reconstruction
of the Royal Oasis in Freeport.
Harcourt’s acquisition of Roy-

al Oasis brings its total invest-
ment in Freeport up to approx-
imately $400 million.

According to a previous com-
pany release, when reopened,
the resort will bring “major ben-
efits to the local area through
increased tourism and employ-
ment.”

Harcourt’s plans include ren-
ovating the resort, creating a
new hotel, casino, convention

and meeting facilities, spa, fit-,

ness centre, food and beverage,
retail, recreation and a host of
other amenities. .
They also plan to restore the
golf courses to their former glo-

ry.

Commonwealth Bank to
begin construction of
Prince Charles branch

THE Commonwealth Bank announced this week that it has
signed a contract for the construction of a new 9,000-square foot,
$3-million branch on Prince Charles Drive.

The signature style stand-alone structure will mirror the huge-
ly successful Golden Gates branch, which opened in 2007, and ear-
lier this year won the 2008 Commonwealth Bank Chairman’s



- Award for Excellence, large branch. Designed and built by archi-

tects Ken Lam and Associates and successful bidders Osprey
Developers, the branch is expected to take 45 weeks to construct
and is tentatively scheduled for a September 2009 grand opening.

Commonwealth Bank expects the Prince Charles branch, locat-
ed just west of the College Garden subdivision, to service the
neighboring Prince Charles, Fox Hill, Yamacraw and Elizabeth
Estates residential areas, as well as the business communities
that surround them.

“We at Commonwealth Bank are committed to taking banking
to the people and we are especially excited about this new branch
in the south-eastern area of New Providence, a geographic area
that has experienced tremendous growth in the past decade.and
is now vastly under-banked,” said Chairman T B Donaldson,
CBE.

“Our experience in the past, and particularly at Golden Gates,
has demonstrated that taking banking into the communities where
people live and work builds loyalty for the bank.

“As the bank grows, it helps the communities it serves grow,
enabling more people to own homes, pay for their children’s col-
lege education, cover medical expenses. Every new branch is a new
shot in the arm for the surrounding community’s economy,” he
said.

When the new branch opens, it will employ up to 40 addition-
al staff and offer full banking services, including walk-up and dri-
ve-through automated banking machines.

Once completed, Commonwealth Bank will have 11 branch
locations serving the Bahamas throughout New Providence,
Grand Bahama and Abaco.

Commonwealth Bank is the nation’s largest publicly-held firm’

- with approximately 6,500 shareholders and more than $1.25 billion

in assets.

The tragedy of a




broken covenant

â„¢ By BISHOP
SIMEON B HALL

THE current social, politi-
cal and religious downturn
being experienced on a nation-
al level is a result of a broken
covenant which the Bahamian
people have committed
between themselves and their
God...

While our founding fathers
were “imperfect” they placed
on paper a perfect vision of
the Bahamas that, had we been
faithful to the original vision;
we could be further on as a
people.

There are some four Christ-
ian references in the preamble
of the Constitution that clear-
ly establishes a covenant with
God — and this covenant was to
have been the matrix of a soci-
ety in which an abiding respect
for Christian values would
have guided our national life.

The glaring and almost con-
temptuous ways in which we

as a nation have broken the:

covenant and strayed as a peo-
ple, is at the core of our
national decay.

The covenant, established in
the 1970’s was born out of a
national rubric to fix the egre-
gious ills of our colonist past.

‘What we need going forward
is a new spirit of nationalism. It
is the kind which appreciates

making news in their

The new patriotic-national-

vice to a cause greater than.

self-interest. It seeks to recov-

‘er the spirit of those founding

fathers, who sought, in all their
human frailty, to establish a
national covenant designed to
cause all Bahamians to
embrace each other regardless

of race, color, religion or eco-

nomic status.

On the occasion of our 35th:

Anniversary, to these noble
ideals, we must recommit our-
selves.

Sir Durward’s book
on sale for charity

SIR Durward Knowles will
sign copies of his book “Dri-
ven By The Stars” on Thurs-
day, July 24, from 3pm to 6pm
at the Logos Bookstore in the

Harbour Bay Shopping Cen-.

tre.
The book, written by Dou-
glas Hanks Jr and first

_released in 1992, chronicles

the eventful life of Sir Dur-
ward, who became a notable
captain and yachtsman.

“Driven By The Stars”, in
addition to documenting the
life of Sir Durward, provides
much history of the Bahamas
from the 1920s. The 1,000
recently printed copies are
being sold to aid the Bahamas
Association for the Physically
Disabled and the One
Bahamas Foundation.

Sir Durward was the Star
World Champion in 1947 and
had an Olympic career that
spanned 40 years from 1948
through 1988; representing

_ England in his 1948 Olympic



Sir Durward Knowles
debut.

‘He won his first Olympic
medal, a bronze, in 1956 at the
Melbourne Olympics and in
1964 at the Tokyo Games he

won the Bahamas’ first ever
Olympic Gold medal sailing

with Cecil Cooke as his crew.

Following his seventh
Olympic appearance in 1972,
everyone thought his Olympic
career was over, but he
returned in 1980 at the age of
70. It was his seventh time rep-
resenting the Bahamas and his
eighth and final Olympic
appearance in the Star. In the
history of the Olympic games,
Sir Durward was the third old-
est competitor.

Sit Durward’s love for sail-

_ ing has been eclipsed only by

his charitable involvement,
and at age 90 he is still active-
ly involved in several benevo-
lent endeavours.

He is Honorary vice-presi-
dent of the Charity Guide No

ciation; president of the

Budget ‘revenue
neutral or loser’

@ By NEIL HARTNELL
Business Editor

. THE 2008-2009 Budget is
“likely to be a revenue neutral
position or a loss of revenue”
to the Government, Prime Min-
ister Hubert Ingraham telling
Tribune Business that the tariff
‘rounding’ exercise would only
generate an extra $5 million that
would be easily offset by the tax
breaks granted.

Responding to the business
community’s concerns that the
tariff rationalisation and round-
ing exercise had resulted in tax
increases for many imported
items, Mr Ingraham and his
team at the Ministry of Finance
said some rates had to be
increased to compensate for the
tax reduction measures
announced in the Budget.

They said the Government,
while seeking to give ordinary
Bahamians relief from the
increased cost of living, induced
by soaring energy, food and
gasoline costs, had to be “fis-
cally responsible”.

BEC privatisation ‘as

he Government will

initiate moves to priva-

tise the Bahamas Elec-

tricity Corporation (BEC) “as

soon as BTC is finished”, Prime

Minister Hubert Ingraham told

Tribune Business, as the state-

owned company’s financial

demands are “almost beyond
the capacity of the state”.

In an exclusive interview, the
Prime Minister said BEC would
need to borrow “anywhere
between $300-$500 million over
the next three years” to expand
its infrastructure and power
generation capacity to meet
national demand.

“BEC is probably going to be
the next one to be privatised,”
Mr Ingraham said. “It is almost

beyond the capacity of the state :

to continue to provide the kind
of generation capacity that is
required for the operations of
BEC.

“Abaco and Eleuthera
together are going to need $150
million. New Providence is
going to need hundreds of mil-
lions...There has to be some-
thing done about BEC’s refi-
nancing during the course of
this financial year.”

Given that the Government
has committed to privatising the
Bahamas Telecommunications
Company (BTC) by year-end
2008, it appears likely that the

Government will begin efforts”

The Prime Minister acknowl-
edged, though, that BEC’s cur-
rent financial condition and
recent annual losses had impact-

was “operating very near the

Minister highlights potential $11m in energy cost savings

m By CARA BRENNEN-
BETHEL
Business Reporter

THE Bahamas could reduce
its fuel import bill by $11 mil-
lion per annum simply by con-
verting to energy-efficient light
bulbs and solar water heaters, a
government minister said yes-

terday.

Speaking at a two-day semi-
nar on Caribbean Regional Sus-
tainable Energy, Dr Earl
Deveaux, minister of the envi-
ronment, said it was estimated
that the Bahamas’ total demand
for electricity was expected to
increase at the rate of 8 per cent
per annum.

Dr Deveaux said simple
changes can have a huge impact
on energy conservation. He
added that replacing four 60-
watt incandescent bulbs with
four 13-watt CFLs in 80,000
households would reduce annu-
al fuel consumption by almost
44,000 barrels, which would yield
an average annual savings of $2

million.

Based on the assumption that
a standard electric water heater
runs an average of two hours per
day, Dr Deveaux said that
replacing 80,000 water heaters
with solar water heaters would
result in a reduction in annual
fuel consumption by 175,000 bar-
rels, yielding an annual savings
of about $9 million.

“These examples highlight the
need for‘national utilities to be
engaged in strengthening the
link between technology and the
consumer,” he added.

Dr Deveaux told conference
delegates that the global ener-
gy challenge is particularly criti-
cal in a fuel-dependent
archipleagic nation like the
Bahamas, which relies entirely
on marine and air transporta-
tion to connect and move goods
and food staples.

“As consumers, our nation
depends on imported petroleum
products to satisfy over 99 per
cent of our consumer energy
demand. It is expected that the

'. demand for electricity through-

out the Bahamas will continue to
grow at a rate of 8 per cent
annually,” Dr Deveaux said.

He added that despite heavy
reliance on fossil fuels, the
Bahamas lacks any known
exploitable supply of conven-
tional energy resources. He said
this severe imbalance between
supply and demand puts the
country in an extremely vulner-
able state.

Effectively, the Caribbean

region and the
Bahamas rep- |}
resent a blank |
state for
renewable
energy oppor-
tunities, partic-
ularly as fuel
prices spiral to
unpfrecedent-
ed heights,
along with the

Earl Deveaux

need to increase environmental.

conservation.

Dr Deveaux said BEC, like
utilities throughout the region,
was a monopoly with a culture
dependent on fossil fuels. “That
culture must also be challenged
to change,” he said.

However, he pointed out that

- to ensure over -strectched utili-

ties are not forced to bear the
burden of huge capital invest-
ment, the preferred option

should be to purchase power -

agreements, whereby companies
make infrastructure investments
to produce energy, and regional

utilities like BEC purchase pow-

er for distribution.
These changes, he said, would

, have to be achieved with. leg-

islative amendments

US Ambassador to the
Bahamas, Ned Siegel, added:
“Now is the time for action on
developing renewable and sus-
tainable energy. Caribbean
economies are especially vul-
nerable to external shocks of this
kind, making planning and eco-
nomic development all the more
difficult.”



He said larger economies in
the Western Hemisphere were

_ by no means immune from the

dislocating effects of high energy
prices.

“Tt is critical that all of us iden-
tify ways to improve energy effi-
ciency and security,” Mr Siegel
said.

He pointed out that the
Caribbean can reduce its oil
dependency by taking advantage
of the wind and solar power it
has in such abundance.

Mr Siegal reiterated his coun-
try’s pledge to assist the
Caribbean in achieving sustain-
able, secure and affordable
access to energy for all citizens.

The conference is being

petitor airport in the region” in terms of costs to
airlines,” Mr Ingraham told Tribune Business.

He added that the knee-jerk reaction from
some commercial and charter airlines to the 20
per cent fee increase, which was exclusively
revealed by Tribune Business, was not to that in
and of itself, but fears about “what is likely to
come thereafter”.

“It’s important to keep airlines happy and keep
costs down,” the Prime Minister said, explaining
that the Customs and Immigration Departments
were developing a shift system so that airline car-
riers would not have to collectively spend $4 mil-
lion per year on paying overtime fees to officers
in these departments.

“The intention is for the airport to be totally

‘autonomous and self-funding, so that govern-

ment will not have to put any money into the
airport’s redevelopment,” Mr Ingraham added.

“The user fees will be able to take care of all
expenditure and redevelopment costs. It’s [the

Telecommunications Company
(BEC) might enjoy post-pri-
vatisation, Prime Minister
Hubert Ingraham told Tribune
Business.

He added that the commit-
tee appointed by the Govern-
ment to advise it on BTC’s pri-
vatisation believed it had “no
binding legal obligation” to sell

the state-owned cellular monop-:

oly to Bluewater Communica-
tions Holdings, the group that
agreed a deal in principle with
the former Christie administra-
tion just before it demitted
office.

The Prime Minister told Tri-
bune Business that the privati-
sation committee, headed by
Commonwealth Bank chair-
man, T. B. Donaldson, and

BTC chairman Julian Francis, °

were “satisfied” that the previ-
ous government had not locked
them into doing a deal with
Bluewater. .

“They may be their choice,
but there is no binding legal
obligation to sell to Bluewater,
“ Mr Ingraham told Tribune
Business:

Bluewater Communications
Holdings is thought to have
‘ about 14 working days left on its
exclusivity period over talks to
purchase BTC. Yet Mr Ingra-
ham’s comments again indicate

that the current government,
and its privatisation and advi-
sory committees, would like to
open up the process to rival bid-
ders and conduct more of a

‘beauty contest’, in an effort to
maximise BTC’s purchase price.

Bluewater Communications
Holdings had offered ta pay
$225 million up front for a 49
per cent stake in BTC, with a
further $30 million payable after
five years - likely when the cel-
lular exclusivity period it was
seeking expired.

Given that cellular already
accounts for two-thirds of
BTC’s revenues and the bulk
of its profits, Bluewater could
effectively pay for the acquisi-
tion within five years through
its monopoly. A final $5 million
would have been paid in year
Six.

’ The Ingraham administration
has indicated it is open to selling
a majority stake in BTC to the
successful bidder, and not retain
a majority holding.

On the exclusivity period any
purchaser would enjoy, Mr
Donaldson told Tribune Busi-
ness earlier this week that three
years was likely to be the max-
imum.

Mr Ingraham said he thought _

when it came to any exclusivity
period. He added: “We'd like
to maximise the purchase price
of BTC, but at the same time
we'd like to liberalise the
telecommunications sector of
the Bahamas as rapidly as pos-
sible.

“We'd like to strike the
appropriate balance. That’s a
bit long for a monopoly to exist,
especially in the cellular area.
Three years would be an out-
side, upper limit.”

The Prime Minister again
expressed regret that BTC had
not been privatised during his
first term in office. The prob-
lem, he added, was that when
BTC’s accounts were being
audited, its assets “could not be
verified”.

“We did not wish to put on

the market a’public sector enti-
ty without having a clean bill of
health from the audit,” Mr
Ingraham said.

“In retrospect, we should
have sold notwithstanding.”

The Prime Minister said that
if BTC had been placed on the
market without a clean audit,
not only might the Government
and Bahamas’ credibility suf-
fered in international financial
circles, but a lower price would

The Prime Minister made a
distinction between the GBPA,
which holds the regulatory,
licensing and quasi-govern-
mental powers for Freeport,
and its Port Group Ltd affili-
ate, which holds interests in the
city’s main productive assets.

Mr Ingraham hinted that the
Government would prefer a
solution where more than one
investor group acquired Port
Group Ltd, which is 50/50 joint
venture partners with Hutchi-
son Whampoa in Freeport’s
main infrastructure and real
estate holding companies.

The 50/50 partners own the
Grand Bahama Development
Company (Devco), Freeport
Harbour Company and the
Grand Bahama Airport Com-

any. ;

“It would be better if the
ownership of the assets was dis-
persed to more than one party,
and that we never have a situa-
tion where they’re owned by
two investors again,” Mr Ingra-
ham said.

“Tf you have two major
groups that end up with the oth-
er 50 per cent, that would be in
Freeport’s best interests.” »

The Prime Minister’s com-
ments are likely to come as a
blow to Mr Fleming who, along
with Geoffrey Richards, both
resigned earlier this year from
their posts as deputy chairman
and chairman, respectively, of
the former’s family private equi-
ty firm, Fleming Family & Part-
ners, to pursue their GBPA
interest. The company itself is
not directly involved in the
attempt to acquire the GBPA
and Port Group Ltd.

Tribune Business under-
stands that Mr Fleming’s busi-
ness plan for the GBPA and
Freeport, should he prove suc-
cessful, is based on him securing
100 per cent control of both
Port Group Ltd and the Port
Authority - the very thing the

Prime Minister said he will not .

allow.
Sources close to the Fleming
camp indicated that Mr Fleming

and his business partners were -

prepared to invest $1 billion of
their own equity in acquiring
the GBPA/Port Group Ltd and
financing an initial slate of
investments to get Freeport and
Grand Bahama’s economy
moving again.

They believe that this could
act as the catalyst to attract as
much as $25 billion in further
foreign direct investment into
Freeport between the time of
purchase and 2020.

Among the industries being
targeted by Fleming, Tribune

Business understands, is.the cre- ,

ation of Freeport’s own inter-
national financial centre, mod-
elled along the lines of those in
Dubai and Singapore, and
focused on international com-
merce and major capital mar-
kets transactions.
Other developments being

eyed by Fleming include a $1-$3:

billion oil refinery, sources have
told Tribune Business, plus a

new cruise ship harbour and ter-.

minal, new non-US interna-

tional terminal at Grand.

Bahama International Airport,
and a business management and
skills training academy.
Also understood to be on Mr
Fleming’s agenda, should his
purchase be successful, is a $1

Government will ‘definitely not back’ Port sale to Fleming

billion liquefied natural gas
(LNG) terminal and a leading
entertainment centre.

Mr Fleming has been pursu-
ing a Supreme Court order lift- .
ing the stay on Sir Jack Hay- ~
ward’s family trust selling its
GBPA/Port"Group Ltd stake
(found to be SO per cent last
summer by Supreme Court Jus-
tice Anita Allen) to him.

Once that happens, the sale
would likely be completed swift-
ly, and Mr Fleming would use
that shareholding to pressure
the late Edward St George’s
estate into selling to him, too.

The St George estate, for its
part, is seeking court orders
putting the stake held in

~ Edward St George’s name into”

its own. Once this happened, it
would then seek to sell its

shares to Hutchison Whampoa.

Meanwhile, Prime Minister
Hubert Ingraham also con-

. firmed that new Port Group Ltd

chairman, Erik Christiansen,
had authorised the release of

between some $20-$25 million

from the company’s coffers.
Tribune Business had previ-
ously been told by informed
sources that some $14 million
had been released to pay down
Hutchison Whampoa’s loan to
the Grand Bahama Airport
Company, while another $8 mil-
lion had been allocated to cov-
er Port Group Ltd’s share of
work costs at the Freeport Har-

’ bour Company.

Port Group Ltd had previ-
ously been sitting on a $30 mil-
lion-plus cash pile, and the
release of such a substantial
amount is understood not to
have gone down well with the
late Edward St George’s estate,
which relies on dividends for its
income.

On the ownership dispute
with Sir Jack Hayward and his
family trust, Mr Ingraham said
both sides had repeatedly told
the Government and its agen-
cies that they were 50/50 part-
ners, and supplied “an abun-
dance” of evidence in the past

‘ to show this.

“We have had discussions
with all sides [the Haywards and
St Georges]. We are going to
have further discussions with at
least one.side next week. We
are nearer to the end'than we
were before,” the Prime Min-
ister said.

Stocks rise as oil prices decline

@ By TIM PARADIS
AP Business Writer

NEW YORK (AP) — Stocks
rose moderately Wednesday as
another decline in oil prices and
several upbeat profit reports
eased some of Wall Street’s
concerns about the economy.

Investors appeared unfazed
by the Federal Reserve's Beige
Book, which provides readings
on the US economy by region
and indicated that business con-
ditions have slowed in recent
months as consumer spending
has turned sluggish. The report
arrives two weeks before poli-
cymakers’ next meeting but
seemed to hold few surprises
for investors.

Regardless, Wall Street
believes the recent easing of oil
prices, if sustained, could give a
crucial boost to the economy.

Crude has retreated as Hurri-'

cane Dolly looked likely to
spare key oil installations in the
Gulf of Mexico and after the
government reported Wednes-
day that domestic inventories
increased last week as con-
sumers curbed their energy use.
But oil came off its lows — and
stocks pared their gains — after

‘the hurricane strengthened to

a Category 2 storm.

While oil again tugged at
stocks as it has for months,
investors also examined a raft of
earnings reports that indicated
not all corporate profits were
suffering because of the slower
economy. That left some
investors more upbeat about
the prospects for the overall
economy. AT&T Inc., McDon-

-ald’s Corp. and Pfizer Inc., all

among the 30 stocks that make
up the Dow Jones industrial
average, weighed in with
reports that generally pleased
investors.

“Oil is a positive but I think
bigger than that is the earnings
news is not as catastrophic as
people were thinking,” said
Noman Ali, portfolio manager
of US equities for MFC Global
Investment Management. in
Toronto. “Some of the bell-
wethers are reporting earnings
that are better-than-expected.
And outside of the financials
things, aren’t so bad.”

In midafternoon trading, the
Dow rose 52.92, or 0.46 per
cent, to 11,655.42 after rising
nearly 100 points in the early

going. On Tuesday, the blue
chips gained 135 points.

Broader stock indicators
advanced. The Standard &
Poor’s 500 index rose 8.70, or
0.68 per cent, to 1,285.70 and
the technology-laden Nasdaq
composite index rose 21.25, or
0.92 per cent, to 2,325.21.

Advancing issues outnum-
bered decliners by about three
to two on the New York Stock
Exchange, where volume came
to 1.09 billion shares.

Bond prices declined as
investors moved some money
into equities. The yield on the
benchmark 10-year Treasury
note, which moves opposite its
price, rose to 4.15 per cent from
4:10 per cent from late Tues-
day.

. The dollar was mostly higher
against other major currencies,
while gold prices fell.

A barrel of light, sweet crude
fell $2.74 to $125.68 on New
York Mercantile Exchange. Oil
is down more than $20 since hit-

‘ting a record above $147 just

weeks ago.

A drop in energy prices
would benefit a wide spectrum
of companies, including airlines,
manufacturers and even retail-
ers. It also helped distract
investors from some disap-
pointing earnings delivered this
week — especially from strug-
gling banks and brokerages. .

AT&T rose $1.51, or 4.8 per
cent, to $33.33 after the com-
pany said quarterly profits rose
amid a big spike in wireless sub-
scribers that offset its shrinking
landline business. The biggest
US phone company is the offi-
cial carrier of Apple Inc.’s
iPhone, arid that helped add 1.3
million wireless subscribers dur-
ing the period.

Pfizer, the world’s biggest
drug maker, said its second-
quarter earnings more than
doubled as restructuring charges
declined and the weak dollar

helped lift overseas revenue. It.
‘narrowly beat Wall Street

expectations. The stock rose 72
cents, or 3.9 per cent, to $19.07.

McDonald’s credited strong
overseas sales with driving the
company’s second-quarter prof-
it. The nation’s largest restau-
rant chain easily surpassed Wall
Street’s expectations. The stock
fell $1.24, or 2.1 per cent, to

‘$58.88.

Boeing Co. fell $2.56, or 3.7

per cent, to $66.70 after report-
ing that second-quarter earn-
ings fell 19 per cent because a
$248 million charge related toa
defense program. The world’s
second-largest commercial air-
plane maker had already

warned it would book the .

expense.

Washington Mutual Inc. fell
74 cents, or 13 per cent, to $5.08
after the nation’s largest thrift
reported a $3 billion loss due
to increases in its loss reserves
to cover souring loans in its
mortgage portfolio.

Costco Wholesale Corpora-
tion warned that its. fiscal
fourth-quarter and full-year
profits will fall short of Wall
Street’s expectations. The ware-
house club operator expects
higher energy costs to hurt its
results. The stock fell $7.73, or
1t per cent, to $64.26.

Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac
advanced as the House planned
to vote Wednesday on legisla-
tion that would tap the mort-
gage giants’ profits to cover any
losses from saving 400,000
homeowners from foreclosure.
The measure would give the
Treasury Department authority
to extend the companies a tem-
porary lifeline. Fannie Mae rose
$1.31, or 9.8 per cent, to $14.72,
while Freddie Mac rose $1.05,
or 11 per cent, to $10.75.

Ali said the government’s
action to help Fannie Mae and

‘Freddie Mac has reassured

investors that the financial sys-
tem is not in danger of collapse.

“Things are not blowing up
because of Fannie and Freddie
still being in business and the
financial system still being
intact,” he said. “I think you’re
seeing some relief on that.”

Still, he remains cautious.

“Some of the biggest rallies
happen in bear markets. The
outlook for the market is still
pretty negative,” he said, point-
ing to a general decline in earn-
ings, a slowdown in interna-
tional growth, rising prices and
a weak dollar.

The Russell 2000 index of
smaller companies rose 4.79, or
0.67 per cent, to 721.61.

Overseas, Japan’s Nikkei
stock average rose 0.97 per cent.
Britain’s FTSE 100 added 1.60
per cent, Germany’s DAX
index rose 1.45 per cent, and
France’s CAC-40 jumped 1.88

per cent.

Yet for the 2008-2009 Bud-
get year, Bahamasair is set to
receive $28 million in govern-
ment funds, with the Water &
Sewerage Corporation set to
receive $19 million; the Broad-
casting Corporation $11 million;
and the Bahamas Development
Bank and the Bahamas Agri-
cultural and Industrial Corpo-
ration (BAIC), $2.5 million col-
lectively.

“There’s no question that’s
unaffordable on a continuing
basis. We’re taking steps to first-
ly contain it, but secondly to
begin to reduce. it, and in some
cases eliminate it,” Mr Ingra-

ham said of the high subsidies.

“Other things will happen to
reduce those numbers. Those
numbers are too high.”

The Prime Minister said the
Government had “capped”
Bahamasair’s subsidy at $28
million, meaning that if the air-
line required more funding, it
would have to generate the
funds itself.

The airline, he added, had not
been allowed to charge market
or economic passenger fees and
rates by the Government, even
though its fuel bill had “gone
sky high”.

“As a percentage, there is
more money available for pub-
lic services now than there was
10 years ago,” the Prime Minis-
ter said.

“The percentage being trans-
ferred to these losing entities is
still too high, even though in
net terms it’s going down.”

taxes.

“The net effect is going to be
against the Government,” Mr
Ingraham said, explaining that
the impact from the tariff
‘rounding exercise’ would “only
net a difference of $5 million”.

Under the Excise Act and
Tariff Act reforms introduced
in the 2008-2009. Budget, cus-
toms duty and stamp duty rates
were amalgamated into one,
with the number of duty rates
rationalised. This resulted in
some amalgamated rates being
rounded up, for example from
42 per cent to 45 per cent, and
some down, from 17 per cent
to 15 per cent.

The Prime Minister said the
$5 million revenue gain esti-
mated to result from this exer-
cise would immediately .be
“whittled away” by the Bud-
get’s tax concessions, which
included $15 million in revenue
foregone on Bahamas Electric-
ity Corporation (BEC) oil
imports.

Mr Ingraham pointed out
that 10 years ago, in 1998, oil
imports accounted for 10 per
cent of the total value of all
goods imported into the

’ Bahamas. Now, oil-related

imports accounted for 31 per
cent of the total value of oil
imports, due to the global price
rise.

A further $1.3 million in tax-
es were given up via the con-
cessions granted to taxi drivers
on vehicle imports, and Mr
Ingraham added: “On balance,
we felt we had done a wonder-
ful thing for the Bahamas, and
that ordinary people benefit
most. Those that pay more will
be persons better off than ordi-
nary folk.”

The Prime Minister cud that
out of every $100 spent by
Bahamians, some $19-$20.went
to the Government in the form
of taxes. The regressive nature
of the Bahamian tax system was
felt most by “ordinary, poor”
persons because their level of
consumption was so high rela-
tive to their incomes when com-

pared to wealthier people.

The customs and stamp duty
concessions, along with the real
property tax breaks that were
intended to revitalise Bay
Street, would also result in a
loss of revenue for the Govern-
ment.

“We’ve got two applications
in for Bay Street already,” Mr
Ingraham said, “for customs
duty exemptions, which will be
approved between now and
next week. That will be mil-
lions.”

He added that traditionally,
labour accounted for between
50-60 per cent of construction
project costs, with materials
accounting for a further 40 per
cent. Customs duties were typ-
ically worth between 25-30 per
cent of construction project
costs.

Mr Ingraham acknowledged
that taxes paid by airline pas-
sengers on imported goods

brought back into the Bahamas:

via their luggage would increase
by “a much as 10 per cent”, as
Stamp Tax was never paid pre-
viously. Now it.will be included

in the amalgamated rates.

Mr Ingraham said the 2008-
2009 Budget was “a rationali-
sation exercise” and not “a
deliberate decision to increase
duty rates”, intended to elimi-
nate a variety of anomalies.

While intended to reduce the
opportunity for Customs offi-
cers to exercise their discretion
in determining what rate to levy
on a particular item, among the
discrepancies tackled were the
different rates levied on office
and home furniture, and male
and female under garments.

Despite the tax breaks,
Zhivargo Laing, minister of
state for finance, said the Gov-
ernment’s tax breaks could not
do everything when it came to
reducing living costs.

He pointed out that sweet
peppers, between May 20008
and now, had increased by 91
per cent on Grand Bahama and
43 per cent on New Providence.

Going against the grain

in an uncertain CCONOMY:

m@ By TIM PARADIS
AP Business Writer

NEW YORK (AP) — It’s
one of the rare occasions when
it’s OK to gawk at the flaws of
the very old. Designers and

architects are plucking wood .

from old barns and other struc-
tures to give new projects a dose
of character that can otherwise
be hard to come by.

While mixing old with new
isn’t, well; new, the demand for

the beauty of decades-old wood

is helping some people who col-
lect and sell the bones of old

buildings prosper in a difficult .
economy. Interest in the wood .

known as reclaimed lumber
appears to be growing in part
because the boards can fit’
tongue and groove with the
environmental goals of some
projects.

Many construction-related
businesses have had demand
fizzle as the housing market has
retreated, but David Sacia has

seen orders for reclaimed wood -

grow. The owner of Reclaimed

Lumber Co. in Baraboo, Wis., ,

mainly sells to wealthy home-
owners on the East and West
coasts and the designers and
architects they employ. He says
business is still growing, just at'a

slower pace than in recent

years. »

“It’s up five per cent this year.
Every year it’s usually up in the
double digits,” he said. And giv-

- en what’s gone on elsewhere in -

the market with stalled projects
in both the residential and com-
mercial construction markets,
any growth is worth noting.

- But this isn’t a business like a
discount grocery chain or a

- pawn shop that benefits from

tough times. Shoppers for

reclaimed lumber generally pay .

more for their history-stained
wood than for the new stuff.

“To buy the material is as .

much as new lumber and usual-
ly two, three or four times. the
cost,” Sacia said.

_ With the higher price Gs and
ever-shifting tastes, Sacia once
worried that demand for the
wood, which is mainly used in

ORIENTAL AREA RUGS

flooring or in decorative
accents, would prove a fad. But
he’s been comforted as notions
about what can be recycled
have spread beyond soda cans
and newspapers.

“The word ‘green’ has come
into play,” he said, predicting

the environmental bona fides

of old boards could help sus-
tain demand.

Anita Lang, principal at
design firm Interior Motives, in
Scottsdale, Ariz., said clients

are increasingly drawn to the

idea of outfitting a home or

“business with something than

can be reused:

And then there is the wood’s
resume: Its nicks and dents give
it beauty, fans say. And the
wood can be sanded and treated
to preserve or minimize marks
from a former life.

“It just to continues to get

more beautiful as you live with

it,” Lang said.“The other thing .
with a reclaimed floor is it’s nev-

er dated.”
She encourages clients to pay
for the reclaimed wood and
skimp on the more superficial
items when they’re building,
renovating or redecorating.
“You can always come back
and upgrade your sofa down
the road,” she said. “There is
so much character that if a fam-
ily would live on that they
would just be adding to that
patina.” 2
Still, some clients have lately
balked at paying more than $20
a square foot, when, for exam-
ple, they can get a fabricated
floor made to look old for about
$17 per square foot. But the dif-

ference between reclaimed ©

wood and wood made to look
old can be stark, she contends.

“You cannot totally replicate
what 100 years does to some-
thing with factory equipment.”

John Williams, a senior
account representative at
Mountain Lumber Co. in Ruck-
ersville, Va., said he’s seen some
slowdown but that the pedigree
of the wood the company ‘sells
— it’s been installed every-
where from Mount Vernon to
Monticello — is still drawing

business.

“One of our barometers
we’re seeing here is how many -

‘requests we’re getting for sam-
ples. And that’s actually gone
up,” Williams said. :

Tricia Thompson and her
husband, Todd, own Enmar.
Hardwood Flooring Inc. in
Mesa, Ariz. She said the gulf
between those worried about

- their finances and those who

appear undaunted has widened.
And demand for the more
expensive reclaimed wood con-
tinues.

“Your very high- -end custom
homes are still going out here,”
she said.

Big retail home decor stores,

for example, will use reclaimed
wood to add a sense of charac-
ter to their stores and to add to
their green credentials.

But people looking to make a
buck from reclaimed wood
shouldn’t necessarily go ripping
down an old barn or homme.
While standards vary, the wood
has to be in good condition and
buyers can be choosy.

Typically, the best deposits
of lumber ripe for reuse are in
the Eastern US and parts of the
Midwest where barns and
homes were often built using
large, old timbers rather than

‘with more blue chip — and less
aesthetically pleasing — wood
as the country pushed West.

Marc Cree, national sales and

marketing manager at Vintage ©

Lumber Company in Frederick
County, Maryland, ‘sees

increased: demand for people.

hoping to profit from. their old
buildings.
“There? s definitely a larger
scale of people calling in. They
‘want money. I think they’ve
seen the rise in the reclaimed
market and they’ve seen the
prices that certain companies
get for the reclaimed market
_and they expect to make a con-
siderable profit,” Cree said.
But some prices have come
down in recent years as more
supply has hit the market, ‘a
benefit to those collecting ‘the
wood. Many barns can be had
. for SL 000, pe 000.

The $320 million resort,
which acts as Exuma’s ‘anchor
property’, has been in receiver-
ship for more than one year
after its holding company,
Emerald Bay Resort Holdings
(EBRH), defaulted on its loan
repayments in April 2007.

The resort has acted as Exu-
ma’s main economic engine,
attracting additional foreign
direct investment to the island.
It employs almost 500 staff, and
features an 18-hole Greg Nor-
man Golf Course, two restau-
rants, three pools, spa, six meet-
ing rooms and 450-person
capacity ballroom.

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.

Development’s proposed Cat
Island project was due to start
“any day now”.

Other developments seen as
benefiting the Family Islands
were Port St George in Long
Island and a proposed project
for south Eleuthera.

“What we hope not to have is
what happened in Exuma,
where you had too many jobs
for the island to sustain. It did-
n’t have the infrastructure,” Mr
Ingraham said.

Meanwhile, the Florida trio
of investors behind the stalled
$250 million Chub Cay project -
Kaye Pearson, Walt McCrory
and Bob Moss - had contacted
the Prime Minister on Monday
to inform him they thought they —
had found a buyer who would
become the main equity
investor. They, in turn, would
take more of a minor role.

“They think they’ve got a
deal, and will be able to pay-
off local creditors and the Gov-
ernment and start-up again,”
Mr Ingraham said of Chub Cay.

“They think they’ve found a
buyer. The entity they’ve found
has involvement in a number of
places in and outside the region.
They are people well known.”

The Prime Minister, though,
expressed scepticism about the
$1.8 billion Mayaguana project,
which was entered into by the
former Christie administration
as a 50/50 joint venture between

. the Government and the

Boston-based I-Group.

“With respect to Mayaguana,
I’ve always had my views on
Mayaguana. I don ‘t see any-
thing happening to convince me
this will be a very successful
development,” he said.

“The Government is a part-
ner in that. development
through the Hotel Corporation,
we have members on the
Board,. and not much is hap-
pening there now.”

Royal Caribbean Cruises’ shares surge

@ By KRISTEN A LEE
AP Business Writer

NEW YORK (AP) — Royal
Caribbean Cruises’ shares
surged Tuesday after the cruise
operator appeased investors
with its announcement that it is
slashing jobs and taking other
steps to reduce annual expenses
by $125 million.

Royal Caribbean Cruises
Limited shares jumped $3.40,
or 14.9 per cent, to $26.28 in
afternoon trading. They had lost
six per cent Monday as
investors anticipated the Mia-
mi-based company’s second-
quarter earnings report.

In a conference call with
investors on Tuesday, Chair-
man and CEO Richard Fain
said the current situation,
including soaring fuel prices and
the economic downturn, “is
unlike anything we’ve experi-
enced in our industry’s histo-

ry. ”
The company said late Mon-

day that it will cut 400 land-
based jobs and reduce some

“Our goal of $125 million is a

It reported that second-quar-

The jobs to be cut range from

nating an educational pro-

called “The Scholar Ship.”

It expects to incur about $15
million, or seven cents a share,
in third-quarter charges relat-
ed to the restructuring.

Fain said, however, that
cruise demand and bookings are
holding up. He attributed low-
er-than-expected second-quar-
ter yields to a disappointing per-
formance by the company’s
Spanish brand, Pullmantur.

grounding incident and a weak
Spanish economy.

“The good news is that the

and at that time the market was
pretty uniformly seen as being

“We believe management’s

the fact that early reads on 2009
bookings are strong with better

encourage investors that cruise
demand remains _ solid,”
Wieczynski said. ;
Including the restructuring
charges, Royal Caribbean
expects third-quarter earnings

about two per cent.

nies must continue to cut

Pack your bags for Baghdad?
Iraq starts to promote tourism

>

@ By CHRISTOPHER TORCHIA
Associated Press Writer
BAGHDAD

Someone had fun tinkering with the airline board at the old, disused
terminal at Baghdad International Airport, reports The Associated
Press. It advertises a “special flight” on Japan Airlines from Basra to
Sydney, Australia, while a flight from Baghdad to Mexico City is
“delayed.”

In reality, Iraq has been a no-go zone for most civilian aircraft for
almost two decades. First, there were U.N. sanctions after Saddam Hus-
sein’s invasion of Kuwait in 1990. Then U.S.-led forces toppled the dic-
tator in 2003, and violence engulfed the country.

Yet, now that insurgent attacks and sectarian bloodshed have ebbed
over the past year, Iraq’s government is beginning to promote tourism.
It will be a tough sell — and even if officials can grab the attention of
the adventuresome, Iraq’s tourism facilities are shabby.

The opening of a new airport Sunday in the southern city of Najaf is
expected to help boost the number of religious pilgrims, mostly Irani-
ans, visiting Shiite shrines to 1 million this year, double the number that
came in 2007.

Pilgrims are admittedly a special
kind of visitor. “They do not consid-
er any kind of danger or harassment.
They have a religious ideology that
considers any difficulty they face as a
merit and mercy for their piety,” said
Abdul Zahra al-Talaqani, spokesman
for Iraq’s tourism ministry.

Iraq is thinking about more than
pilgrims, though. Last week, officials
displayed tourism posters and said
they are intent on attracting visitors
to Iraq’s fabled archaeological sites,
many of them looted and damaged in
fighting. But they offered few IN THIS JULY 19, 2008 file pho- ; e
specifics about how they would do to, Robert Kelley, left, head of ae at
that. And the venue of the forum? Symmit Global Group, a U.S.- x my

“Safety is still the biggest con- the heavily fortified Green Zone in
cern,” Lt. Cmdr. Christopher Baghdad.

Grover, a Navy officer working with

Iraq’s tourism board on behalf of the U.S. government, wrote in an e-
mail. “It will take a few risk-takers to invest in Iraq, but when that hap-
pens others should follow.” :

One risk-taker is Robert Kelley, an American businéssman who
stood at the edge of a field in Baghdad’s Green Zone on Saturday and
said a luxury, $100 million hotel would be built there. The zone hous-
es Iraqi government offices and American diplomatic and military
facilities. Officials from Iraq’s National Investment Commission joined
Kelley in the shade of a tent, where they slathered wet concrete onto
bricks in a “cornerstone-laying” ceremony. Some Iraqi observers
joked that the structure looked like a gravestone.

“We think the Iraqi people want to get along with each other,”
said Kelley, head of Summit Global Group, a U.S.-based investment
company. He did not identify the-investors, but said-construction
could begin soon after city officials do a survey in 30 to 45 days. &

Despite his expréssion of confidence, many hotels in the capital
are virtually empty, and the National Museum, full of relics from
thousands of years of history, remains closed to the public.

“We’re worried about reopening the museum, in case a suicide
bomber with an explosive vest infiltrates,” a government expert on
archaeology said, insisting on arionymity because he is not authorized
to speak to the media. “We should wait until the spread of peace and
security in the country.” :

Hundréds of hotels in the holy cities of Najaf and Karbala are usu-
ally packed, but tourism officials say the buildings badly need upgrad-
ing. War has reduced places like Babylon, where the Hanging Gardens
were located, to decrepit, virtually inaccessible outposts of ancient
culture. The northern city of Mosul is near the remnants of Ninevah and
Nimrud, cities of the Assyrian empire. But Mosul is one of the more
violent places in Iraq these days. Ur, capital of the Sumerian civiliza-
tion ‘and the Biblical home of the prophet Abraham, lies in the south,
where Shiite militias have been active. “Its turbulent and extreme
domestic situation makes Iraq one of the least desirable places in the
world to be,” reads the online edition of the Lonely Planet travel
guide. Many countries warn their citizens against going to Iraq. ©

Years ago, the few foreign tourists who came during Saddam’s bru-
tal rule generally felt safe in the streets. Saddam’s image was every-
where. So were informers, and Iraqis did not speak freely to visitors.

Baghdad is much calmer than it was just a year ago, but anybody,
Iraqi or foreigner, who goes into the streets recognizes the potential for
danger. The loud boom of a roadside bomb targeting an Iraqi police
patrol was audible along the Tigris river Sunday morning. One civilian
was killed.An Iraqi resident, who didn’t want to be quoted by name
because of concerns for his safety, said he had personally witnessed
attacks on military or government convoys in 2004, in 2007 and then last
week. In each case, he did a U-turn along with other frantic drivers and
sped away from the fray; collisions were common in the traffic mayhem.

Besides the threat to safety, tourists would face other problems,
including a lack of infrastructure such as the rundown hotels and
overstretched medical facilities. Iraq, in short, is not a place for most
tourists. ;

In the midst of a cruel sum-

The number of televisions

A SOUTH FLORIDA motorist looks at a. TV monitor as she fuels up her car
in Miami, Friday, July 11, 2008. In the midst of a cruel summer for Amer-
ica’s drivers, there’s a diversion: TV at the gas station. The number of tele-

visions atop gas pumps have skyrocketed since their introduction at a

handful of stations in 2006. Now, three companies have placed more than
20,000 screens at thousands of stations from the Massachusetts Turnpike

to Southern California.



“T actually
have several
customers a
day saying,
‘Hey, I saw our
ad on TV as I

eivew time,



make ends
meet however
possible.”



David Yegenian

is based in Detroit. “The cus-
tomer is tied to the screen with
an eight-foot rubber hose for
five minutes.”

It also appears that people
remember what they see on the
pump TVs: according to a Gas
Station TV and Nielsen Media
Research study, 70 percent of
the people who watched the ads
remembered the products
advertised, and 89 percent of
consumers surveyed were will-
ing to buy a product after seeing
an ad atop the pump.

“You can push people into
the store,” says John McLean,

CEO of Fuelcast, which is based

the entire store! All Summer!

in Santa Monica, California.
Which is good news for retail-
ers, who often have trouble lur-
ing customers inside.
“One of the pitfalls for con-

venience store owners these

days is that people pay at the
pump,” said Richard Divine,

-head of the marketing depart-

ment at Central Michigan Uni-

: versity. “People don’t want to

go inside the store anymore.
But at the gas pump, you’ve got
a captive audience.”
On a recent workday at a
Shell station in Miami, the Fuel-

cast screen..above the pump
aired 15-second ads for fuel-effi-

cient Chevy cars, Norwegian
Cruise Lines, and, of course,
Shell gasoline. Anna DaSilva,
a 59-year-old retiree from
Doral, Fla., said she had never
seen the screens at gas stations
until this month; when she
fueled up at a Shell station near
her home. DaSilva said she
liked the idea not because of
the ads but because it distracted
her from the high gas prices.

“T think that’s the whole pur-
pose of the TVs,” she said.

Orlando Garcia, a Miami
engineer, didn’t even look at
the TV screen as it broadcast a
Norwegian Cruise Lines ad at
the Shell station on a recent
workday. He was too busy
pumping $75 into the tank of
his Range Rover.

“Tt doesn’t bother me, but I’m
not really paying much atten-
tion to it,” shrugged the 37-year-
old Garcia, a Miami engineer.
“$4.15 gas, now that bothers
me.”

Women on antidepressants may benefit from Viagra

Viagra’s effect in women has been disap-

arousal.”

The research involving 98 premenopausal
women found Viagra helped with orgasm.

But the benefits did not extend to other
aspects of sex such as desire, researchers report
in Wednesday’s Journal of the American Med-

“For women on antidepressants with orgasm
problems, this may provide some wonderful
relief,” said psychologist Stanley Althof, direc-
tor of the Center for Marital and Sexual Health
of South Florida in West Palm Beach, who was

Antidepressants can interfere with sex drive

and performance even as the drugs help lift erip-
pling depression. Switching drugs or reducing the

dose can help. But many people, men and
women, stop taking them because of their sexual
side effects.

The complaints are common. More than half
the people who take antidepressants develop
sexual problems, prior studies have found, espe-
cially for people taking Prozac, Paxil, Celexa
and other drugs that work by increasing the
chemical serotonin in the brain.

Serotonin is thought to slow down orgasm,
perhaps by diminishing the release of another
brain chemical, dopamine. Viagra increases
blood flow to sex organs.

Pfizer Inc. spokeswoman Sally Beatty said
the company currently has no plans to pursue
FDA approval for using its drug Viagra as a
treatment for female sexual dysfunction. The
company ended its internal research on Viagra
for women in 2004.

While Viagra was found to be safe, the results
were inconclusive, Beatty said in an e-mail.

The search for a Viagra equivalent for women
has been disheartening.

Rising prices at the gas pump
appear to be having at least one
positive effect: Traffic deaths
around the country are plum-
meting, just as they did during
the Arab oil embargo three
decades ago, according to the
Associated Press.

Researchers with the National
Safety Council report a 9 percent
drop in motor vehicle deaths
overall through May compared
with the first five months of 2007,
including a drop of 18 percent in
March and 14 percent in April.

Preliminary figures obtained
by The Associated Press show
that some states have reported
declines of 20 percent or more.
Thirty-one states have seen
declines of at least 10 percent,
and eight states have reported an
increase, according to the council.

No one can say definitively why
road fatalities are falling, but it
is happening as Americans cut

_ back sharply on driving because
of record-high gas prices.

Fewer people on the road
means fewer fatalities, said Gus
Williams, 52,-of Albany, Ga., who
frequently drives to northern
Ohio. “That shows a good thing
coming out of this crisis.” He has
also noticed that many motorists
are going slower.

The federal government
reported in April that miles trav-
eled fell 1.8 percent in April com-
pared with a year earlier, contin-
uing a trend that began in
November.

Experts say a slumping econo-
my and fuel prices have brought
down the number of road fatali-
ties in a hurry.

“When the economy is in the

typically see a decline in miles
driven and traffic deaths,” said
John Ulezycki, the council’s exec-
utive director for transportation
safety.

also were reported more often by thé women
taking Viagra. Psychologist Leonore Tiefer of
New York University School of Medicine said
industry-funded research has oversimplified
women’s sexual experience. S

The new Viagra findings are based on an

eight-week experiment.

he noted the new study, funded by a Pfizer
grant, found more side effects than benefits.

The 98 women were using antidepressants
successfully but were having sexual problems.
Their average age was 37.

The women agreed to attempt sexual activity
at least once each week.

Each time, they took a pill, not knowing
whether it was Viagra or a matching dummy
pill.

While 72 percent of the women taking Viagra
reported improvement on an overall scale, only
27 percent of the women taking the placebo
reported improvement.

Althof said it’s “worrisome” that 43 percent of
the women on Viagra experienced headaches,
compared to 27 percent of the women on dum-

“Where’s the question to the women: Is it
worth it?” Tiefer said.

An earlier study in men taking antidepres-
sants found more pronounced sexual benefits
with Viagra than the benefits found for women,
said lead author Dr. George Nurnberg, a psy-
chiatrist at the University of New Mexico School
of Medicine in Albuquerque.

But the message for men and women who
need antidepressants is that Viagra may help
them stay on the drugs, he said.

“We're not talking about a lifestyle issue.
We’re talking about a medical necessity issue,”
Nurnberg said. Pfizer had no influence on the
design, findings or manuscript, Nurnberg said.

He and several of the other authors disclosed

MOTORISTS leave the city of Indianapolis at rush hour Monday, July 7,

Darron Cummings/AP Photo

2008. Traffic deaths in many states this year are on track to post their
biggest percentage decline since theArab oil embargo in the 1970s as
motorists reduce their driving amid record-setting gas prices.

States also cite other factors
such as police stepping up their
pursuit of speeders and drunken
drivers, as well as better teen-
licensing programs, safer vehicles
and winter weather that kept
many drivers at home. The Gov-
ernors Highway Safety Associa-
tion also says seat belt use is prob-
ably at record levels and will top
90 percent in several states when
figures are released later this year.

But the last time road deaths
fell this fast and this sharply was
during the Arab oil embargo in
1973-1974, when fatalities tum-
bled 17 percent, from about
55,100 to 46,000; and as states
raised the, drinking age to 21 in
1982-83, when fatalities fell 11
percent, from roughly 49,300 to
44,000.

Chuck Hurley, a former offi-
cial with the National Safety
Council and the Insurance Insti-
tute for Highway Safety, said half
of the decline in road deaths dur-
ing the 1970s was attributed to
high gas prices. The remainder
was linked to the lowering of free-
way speed limits to 55 mph.

Republican Sen. John Warner
of Virginia has said Congress
might want to consider reimpos-

ing a national speed limit.

Hurley, now chief executive of
Mothers Against Drunk Driving,
said gas prices have helped curb
drunken driving, too.

Even considering new safety
measures by states, it is now clear
that, just like in the early 1970s,
motorists are cutting discretionary
travel and reducing the kind of
late-night outings-for alcohol that
often lead to deadly accidents,
Hurley said. :

“People are going home early
or stopping by a store and buying
a case of beer and taking it
home,” said Maj. Daniel Lons-
dorf of the Wisconsin State
Patrol.

Peg Withrow, 48, of Columbus,
said she does more walking and
has canceled or delayed trips,
including a planned visit to see
her parents in South Carolina.
When she does get in a car, With-
row and her fiancee discuss
whether it’s cheaper to take a
freeway or city streets.

“Before we leave the house,
we plan a route,” Withrow said as
she loaded groceries into her
Ford F-250 pickup truck, a vehicle
she calls a “gas hog.”

Fatality rates have remained

‘

“Traffic deaths fall.
as gas prices climb

relatively flat over the last 15
years or so, totalling 42,642 in
2006, the last year for which com-
plete figures from the National
Highway Traffic Safety Admin-
istration are available.

Regulators say a better gauge
of road fatalities is the number
per 100 million miles traveled, a
rate that has been declining even
as Americans drive more. In 2006,
that figure fell to its lowest level:
1.42 deaths. i

Yet the drop-off this year is
even greater and appears to be
accelerating.

Indiana fatalities are down 26
percent and on pace to surpass
the lowest level since the state
first began keeping records 18
years ago: 792 fatalities in 2002.

Ohio’s rate is off 20 percent,
and the state recorded just six
deaths over the Memorial Day
weekend, the fewest in 38 years.
Illinois’ total also is off 20 per-
cent, and Wisconsin is down
about 30 percent. 8 = #"s
Preliminary figures show death
rates are down 20 percent in Ten-
nessee, 22 percent in New Jersey,
13 percent in Washington state,
11 percent in Florida and 21 per-
cent in New Mexico, where the
state effort to cut alcohol-
involved fatalities has resulted in
a 35 percent decline in such
deaths so far this year, from 83
to 54.

After the energy crisis of the
1970s, traffic fatalities gradually
crept up in the 1980s as gas prices
dropped and speed limits began
to rise again.

But the number of fatalities
may continue falling if oil futures
contracts are any indication. Most
energy traders do not foresee a
long-term decline in prices,
despite a big decrease last week
and another one Tuesday.

“People aren’t driving as much.
We're definitely seeing a differ-
ence” in crashes, said Pam Fisch-
er, director of the New Jersey
Division of Highway Safety.

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

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.

idential. candidate, Sen. Barack Obama hand out invitations for Obama’s speech at the Victory Column in
Barlin, Germany, Tuesday, July 22, 2008. Obama will visit Berlin on Thursday, July 24, 2008 and will also meet
with German Chancellor Angela Merkel and Foreign Minister Frank-Walter Steinmeier.

@ By MATT MOORE
BERLIN

Barack Obama comes face to
face this week with a con-
stituency truly eager for change
after eight years of George W.
Bush: Europeans, reports The
Associated Press. ,

Obama can expect an enthu-
siastic welcome when he speaks
at one of Berlin’s most famous
landmarks, the Victory Column,
on Thursday — the first of three
stops in Europe, where polls
show him as people’s over-
whelming favorite in the U.S.
election.

Obama’s youth, eloquence
and energy have turned heads
across the Atlantic, as has his
callfor change. _

For Europeans, America
offers two faces: one of cyni-
cism, big business and bullying

aggression, another of freedom,

fairness and nothing-is-impos-
sible dynamism.

If Bush was seen as embody-
ing that first America, Obama is
viewed as fitting the second role
— one that Europe has histori-
cally loved, respected and relied
on. :
On top of that comes his
charisma. The German news
magazine Der Spiegel splashed
the headline “Germany meets
. the superstar” over a photo of
Obama on its cover this. week.

“Americans need a change,
and what’s good for America is
good for.the whole world,” said
Maike Smerling, a physician
who was born and raised in the
former East Germany.

Juergen Trittin, a leading law-
maker with Germany’s opposi-
tion Greens, pinpointed the
contrast between Obama’s tour
and Bush’s much-protested vis-
its over the years.

“We should be glad that an
American is coming who people
don’t have to demonstrate
against,” Trittin said on N24

television. “The rest of Europe

is jealous that Barack Obama
is speaking here in Berlin.”



MONDAY — FRIDAY

DEMOCRATIC presidential candidate Sen. Barack Obama, D-IIl.,



Jae C. Hong/AP Photo



walks through Ben Gurion Airport in Tel Aviv, Israel, Tuesday, July 22,
2008, after making a statement to the media on the tarmac upon
arrival. Obama spoke of a “historic and special relationship between
the United States and Israel, one that cannot be broken” and one ii-at

he hoped to strengthen as president.

Obama, who will continue to
France and Britain after his
Berlin stop, strikes a chord with
European admirers of the
American ideal that all should
have equal chances of success.

“He’s different from other
politicians. He represents
minorities ‘and he’s down to
earth and smart,” said Ioannis
Ioannidis, a 27-year-old sales-
man in Stockholm, Sweden.
“He comes from nowhere. He
wasn’t born into it, and it’s got
nothing to do with what family
he’s from.” ,

: But beyond that, Obama also
is hitting the right notes with
Europeans on issues that matter
to them. Thursday’s Berlin stop
offers him a chance to reinforce
that impression in a city where
John F. Kennedy, Ronald Rea-
gan and Bill Clinton all made

. famous speeches.

In a speech last week on for-
eign policy, Obama vowed to
fight global warming, stress
diplomacy in dealing with Iran
and produce a clear exit strate-
gy for Iraq — all issues on
which Bush’s_ differing
approaches angered many
Europeans. :

Evoking a time when Europe
looked to America with grati-
tude, Obama called for a 21st
century Marshall Plan to alle-

\

viate world misery because
“that can be our best invest-
ment in increasing the common
security of the entire world.”

Polls in the countries being
visited by Obama make the pre-
sumptive Democratic nominee
Europe’s overwhelming favorite
over his Republican rival, John
McCain.

Some experts have a simple
explanation for Europe’s Oba-
mamania. Josef Braml, an
America expert with the Ger-
man Council on Foreign Rela-
tions, put it bluntly: “He’s not
Bush.”

But Europe’s excitement over
Obama appears to go deeper
than just relief over the prospect
of a break from the acrimonious
Bush years.

For Europeans, perhaps, it
isn’t just that Obama is not
Bush but that he has come to be
seen as the “anti-Bush” — a fig-
ure who represents such a star-
tling contrast to the outgoing
president that there is a sense
the Washington power struc-
ture might be purged of much
that Europeans see as wrong
with American leadership.

Obama “projects the vision
of a better America,” said
Georg Schild, an expert on Ger-
man-American relations at the
University of Tuebingen.

Europeans seem to fecl the
U.S. is on the brink of a funda-

-mental change and see Obama

as the protagonist of that trans-
formation. Such is the sense of
the importance of the Ameri-
can election that France now
has a French Committee to
Support Barack Obama. Paris
Mayor Bertrand Delanoe, fash-
ion designer Sonia Rykiel and
philosopher Bernard Henri-
Levy are in its ranks, as are
ordinary French citizens.

“These elections have reper-
cussions on the whole world,”
said the committee’s president,
Samuel Slovit. “What happens
in the United States will affect
us here. It’s the result of politi-
cal globalization.”

It’s difficult to gauge how
race’is playing out in European
attitudes toward Obama, who
has been anointed by one Ger-
man newspaper as “Der

‘Schwarze JFK” — the black

JFK. But the “feel-good” fac-
tor that many pundits have
identified among educated
white Americans in their sup-
port for Obama may at least in
part be behind Europeans’
eagerness to embrace a black
U.S. presidential candidate.
Despite large minority pop-
ulations across the continent,
only a sprinkling of nonwhites
even hold seats in Europe’s par-
liaments — forget seriously
vying to be a national leader.
“Tt’s a vicarious thrill,” said
Reginald Dale, a senior fellow
at the Center for Strategic and
International Studies’ Europe
Program. “After they’ve
switched off their TV screens
they’re not going to go out and
find a black candidate to put
forward to lead their own coun-

35 year old child

> IN the natural any 35-year
old man or woman who seems
to be digressing rather than
progressing, especially in key
areas of his or her life, is an
individual that is in need of
special/professional help if
they are expected to lead a

productive life.

Next year this same time the
Bahamas will be going through its 36th
Independence exercise and celebra-
tions. As a proud Bahamian I'm some-
what perplexed and very disappointed
at where we are as a nation today as it
relates to our methods of operation,
and our level of immaturity and
advancement in many key areas.

If we're going to be a mature, suc-
cessful nation in the western hemi-
sphere we've got to stop playing the
religious/political games. It's time that
we as a people stop accepting medioc-
rity from our leaders, otherwise we will
forever be nothing more than a nation
filled with Junkanoos.

There was a time whenever someone

was referred to as a Junkanoo, he/she
was meant to be a joker or clown. To
show how committed we are to pro-
ducing Junkanoos - we've established
an entire ministry within’ the
Government to ensure the develop-
ment and to preserve the culture of
jokers and clowns.

Nations that are expecting to make



positive impacts in today's society are
passionate about equipping and
preparing their youth in modern tech-
nologies and discoveries. What do we
really want for the Bahamas of tomor-
row? Is it a nation of Junkanoo or a
nation of trail blazers in technology,

computers, other breakthroughs and.

discoveries?

Look at the hundreds/thousands of
dollars that various educated govern-
ments spend on Junkanoo (senior/jun-
ior) rather than seriously investing that
money in educating and preparing our
children for tomorrow.

Wow! Can you imagine what the
Bahamas of tomorrow would be like if
our leaders had some vision? The
Bahamas would be the envy of nations
worldwide, but unfortunately this is
not the case. It is evident that
advanced technology, serious manufac-
turing, high scaled farming, medical
discoveries and breakthroughs are of

little or no importance to the vision- .

less, eloquent speaking leaders of
today; how sad.

The politicians, both PLP and FNM,
along with their business partners (the
religious leaders) should do right by
the children of tomorrow and apolo-

gise for not having a clear, visionary
plan that they can run with.

It does this nation no good for vari-
ous persons or leaders with ulterior
motives to say that we have a national
vision when it's not clearly written; in
speaking to one of His watchmen of
the city, namely Habakkuk here's what
Yahweh said to him.

Habakkuk 2:2 And the Lerd
answered me and said, "Write the vision
and make it plain upon tables, that he
may run that readeth it.”

Here's what is so frightening about
the forecast of the Bahamas; most of
the notable religious leaders (supposed
to be watchmen) of this country are so
busy merchandising the gospel to the
point that they can't see the Godly
vision of the Bahamas.

I know that this will offend many,
but do I care? No, not one bit, because
I don't have time to play the reli-
gious/political game. Our nation is in
big trouble, families are being
destroyed and negatively impacted
everyday by murders and other serious

crimes. The many facets of lawlessness .

that we're experiencing today are due
to the great lack of vision by our lead-
ership pool straight across the board
(political, religious and civic). The
scripture does not say “that where
there is no vision, the leaders perish”
but rather it says in Proverbs 29:18,
Where there is no vision, the people per-
ish: but he that keepeth the law, happy is
he.

Are our people perishing everyday



on our. streets and in their homes?
(Yes) The politicians have positioned
themselves and are cutting financial
deals left, right and centre so that dur-
ing and after their term in the political
arena they will be financially set.

Thirty five years of independence
and not one of our leaders can con-
vincingly and clearly explain to a 9th or
10th grade student where we're going
as a nation; all they're able to say is
that “on July 10, 1973 the Bahamas
became an independent nation".

Since the passing of the baton from
Sir Lynden O Pindling and the other
forefathers of this great country, the
recipients of the leadership baton have
and are yet doing a very good job in
failing to prepare our nation's youth to
be all that God has called and ordained
them to be.

Due to our leadership's lack of a
national vision, our youth are being
trained to fulfill the visions of every

‘foreign investor that sees the many

golden opportunities that lie through-
out the length and breadth of the
Bahamas. What is independence? How
independent are we? Wake up
Bahamians.

let both of them grow together

>> AND the slaves of the
household came and said to
him, “Master, did you not sow
good seed in your field?
Where, then, did these weeds

come from?”

He answered, “An enemy has done
this.” Thé slaves said to him, “Then do
you want us to go and gather them?”
But he replied, “No; for in gathering the
weeds you would uproot the wheat
along with them.”

And one of the slaves answered, “Not
me, Master, for I know exactly the dif-
ference between wheat and weeds.”
And he went out and began to pull out
the weeds, but some of them turned out
to be wheat as the master had foretold.
Matthew 13:24-43

This was the gospel reading of last
week in many Christian Churches.
There was one striking feature of the
parable of the Wheat and the Weeds
that is easy to overlook - that is the bal-
ance and maturity. of the servants. If
there were immature or unbalanced
servants among them, the parable might
have ended in a different way, such as
this:

Many Christians today are like such
over-zealous servants who could not tol-
erate the evil weeds. In their zeal to



serve God they go on a crusade against
those they perceive as evil with the
intention of cleaning up the church, the
nation or the world. In the end they dis-
cover they have made a big mistake.

_ Imagine the surprise and shock the
servants must have felt when they went
to the farm owner to report the pres-
ence of the wéeds in the farm and asked
for permission to go and pull them out.

As far as the servants were concerned
that was the right thing to do in order to
maximize output, as any good farmer
knows. Why then did the farm owner
restrain them from pulling out the
weeds? We can think of two reasons.

1. The master knew that the wheat
would survive in spite of the presence of
the weeds. The weeds might inconven-
ience the wheat temporarily, but they
would not choke them to death or take
over the farm.

2. Now this is crucial, he knew how
difficult it was to distinguish between
the wheat and the weeds. They look so
much alike. Only at harvest time could
they be distinguished for sure by their
fruits. If it were possible to distinguish

with accuracy the weeds from the wheat
he would probably not have prevented
them. But he prevented them for this
one reason, “lest in gathering the weeds
you root up the wheat along with
them”. Matthew 13:29.

Jesus then went on to explain to his
disciples that “the field is the world,
and the good seed are the children of
the kingdom; the weeds are the chil-
dren of the evil . (Vs 38) .

This explanation makes it clear that
the point of the parable is that
Christians should not try to get rid of
bad people from the world. We must
let good and evil people live side by
side in the world till the day of reckon-
ing when they will be known for sure
by their fruits.

We should be content to let good
and evil people live in the same house,
the same apartment building, the same

neighborhood, the same country and.

in the same world, for the simple rea-
son that we cannot absolutely identify
without error who are the good and
who are bad.

Of course we all have our ideas of
who the good and the bad guys are
but, like the servants, we could be
wrong. Faithful servants are those who
recognise this possibility that they
could be wrong and so are prepared to
suspend judgment and action.

Intolerance, the desire to get rid of evil
people around us, breads fanatics who
end up being unfaithful servants of our
God who “makes his sun rise on the
evil and on the good, and sends rain on
the righteous and on the unrighteous”.
Matthew 5:45

Examples of.such overzealous ser-
vants who want to get rid of people
they perceive as evil, but who end up
going against the mind of God
abound:

e We can think immediately of the
young man Saul who went on to
become St Paul. He undertook a per-
sonal crusade to root out Christianity
because he believed it was a bad idea.

e We can think of those “zealous
Christians” who go about hunting
down abortion providers and homo-
sexuals.

e We can think-of Benjamin Smith
of the White Supremacist World
Church of the Creator who went on a
shooting rampage gunning down Jews,
Blacks and Asians.

To people like these the message of
today's gospel is loud and clear: If you
want to be a faithful servant of God
you must be prepared to make room
for those we perceive as evil.

We must heed the words of the
Master, “Let both of them grow
together until the harvest”.

> Fear thou not; for | am with
thee: be not dismayed; for | am
thy God: | will strengthen thee, |
will help thee; yea, | will uphold
thee with the right hand of my
righteousness. Isaiah 41:10

AS Christians, we experience storms
in our lives from time to time.

Some we tend to cope with more
easily than others depending on the
nature and origin of the storm.
Sometimes we cause these storms in
our lives because of our disobedience.
Sometimes we are warned not to do or
encouraged to do a particular thing

because the consequence might not be ©

palatable, but we ignore these warn-
ings, like many of us do when we are
told to prepare for the storm in the nat-
ural. /

On this Christian journey, however,
it matters not how careful you are, you
will be hit by storms of one kind or
another, but we must remember that
persecution cannot destroy our peace
and joy. Adversities have been the
experience of God's people in all gen-
erations therefore we should not think



it strange if we experience storms in
our lives.

Trouble and calamity do not neces-
sarily mean that God has deserted us
or that he has stopped loving us. On
the contrary, our suffering will open up
the means by which we experience
more of God's love and comfort.

Paul assures us in Romans that in all
of these adversities we will overcome
and be more than conquerors through
Christ.

So my friends, be encouraged
because if God is with you who can be
against you. Many times it would
appear that there is no way out and
that you are going under but this is the
time to hold on to Jesus and not let go.

When Paul was on his way to Rome,
there was a shipwreck. This shipwreck
could have been avoided had the cap-
tain heeded the words of wisdom that
were given to him. However, God was

e storm

with Paul and comforted him and
assured him that all lives would be
spared if everyone stayed on board.

You see, Paul had to go to Rome to
complete his assignment. Because God
was with Paul, everyone survived and
the survivors were able to experience a
miracle on the island - when Paul was
bitten by a poisonous snake and every-
one expected him to die, he shook the
snake into the fire as if nothing hap-
pened. Void of understanding, they
proceeded to call Paul a god.

Do you know that the more the
enemy tries to afflict you, the more you
grow spiritually? ;

As believers, many times we are
falsely accused, but we are admonished
in the Gospel of St Matthew to rejoice
and be exceedingly glad for great is our
reward in heaven for so persecuted
they the prophets which were before
us.

Many times when we are going
through a storm, the nights seem
unusually long and our days for the
most part are dreary and we are tempt-
ed to ask: ‘Does Jesus care? My friends
I can tell you He cares. He has prom-
ised never to leave us nor forsake us
and he is faithful to his promise.

We cannot forget that the enemy's
job is to steal, kill and to destroy. If he
could steal your joy, you will be that
much more disadvantaged because the
joy of the Lord is our strength. So
when trials come and we are tempted
to lose hope, hold on my brother, hold
on my sister, for the storm is passing
over. It will definitely not last always.

The aftermath of a storm can be as
devastating or more devastating than
the storm itself because when it is all
over we have to face reality. We are
then able to evaluate the extent of the
damage.

Naturally, while a storm is in
progress we are too busy trying to pro-
tect ourselves and our surroundings
from injury which could result from
flying debris and other sources and
with the raging storm we dare not ven-
ture on the outside. But when it is all
over and we examine the damages we
are amazed at what has taken place.

Many individuals find it very diffi-
cult to cope with the aftermath of a
storm and have to receive counselling
while others are grateful that despite
the fact that they would have suffered

Establishing a National Grandparents Day for the Bahamas

>> A GRANDPARENTS Day would be
a perfect time to enhance inter-genera-
tional communication, foster apprecia-
tion for and understanding of senior
citizens, re-live happy memories of
bygone times and to just celebrate
grandparents!

The National Grandparents Day in
the United States of America is cele-
brated on the first Sunday after the
American Labour Day or in other
words, the second Sunday in
September each year. It is a special day
set aside:

a. to honour grandparents

b. to give grandparents an opportunity
to show love for their children's
children, and

¢. to help children become aware of
the strength, information and
guidance older people can offer.
(www.grandparents-day.com)

It seems fitting, on the occasion of the
30th anniversary of the National
Grandparents Day legislation being
passed by the United States Congress
(in 1978), for churches in our beloved
Bahamaland to take the initiative to
establish an annual day to honour
grandparents.

Firstly, I would believe that quite a
number of major religious leaders were
“raised” by grandparents as were many
others in this society today. There were
specific reasons for this.

In the 1940's and 1950's, a number of
Bahamian men /fathers chose to go
abroad, to the southern United States
(they were recruited to work in agricul-




DR ALBERT S.
FERGUS



ture) and to South America largely, to
work and earn a living for their families.

Women from ‘over the hill communi-
ties', and elsewhere, who attended the
Dundas Civic Centre - a school of eti-
quette located on the present site of
Dundas, which trained young women in
the art of being a maid - who were thus
able to obtain that essential credential
necessary to land a maid job ‘out east' or
‘out west', often had to work “on prem-
ises”, a term I believe is equivalent
today to a “live-in maid”.

So it was the grandparents who had to
assume the role of helping to rear the
children - I know this because my (now
88-years old) mother graduated from
"The Dundas’, worked. “on premises”
and | “was raised” by grandparents from
about age eleven years old, along with
my older sister.

I would guess that the spiritual influ-
ence of grandparents upon various lead-
ing religious leaders of today greatly
contributed to their stability, their love
for and appreciation of spiritual things,
as well as for their overall positive char-
acter and integrity.

Anyone involved in pre-schools and
primary schools (for example, with
delivery and collection of such children)
would be aware of the role grandparents

" are playing in the rearing of today's chil-

dren, although it is becoming harder and
harder to distinguish between the child's
grandparents and the child's parents,

since a lot of grandmothers are younger
and younger: and at the other end of the
spectrum, there are grandparents who
have grandchildren of the same ages as
their own young children - mothers and
daughters pregnant at the same time.
Grandparents are playing a very sig-
nificant role in value formation and eco-
nomic support, so a day to celebrate
them might be a great encouragement.
The need for grandparents to educate
the young in their families, neighbour-
hoods and churches about life in the
early days remains a pressing one. How
many New Providence grandparents, for
example, have taken their families to
Collins Wall to relate its history and to
talk about how life was when people
daily walked on the wall and climbed
over the wall using tall ladders in order
to get to/from school or to/from work or

to go to church? (Incidentally, Nassau.

Food Store was on one side of Collins
Wall and City Meat Market was on the
other!)

And people from Family Island settle-
ments have so many rich memories on
which to reminisce and share with the
younger generation.

The need to educate the young in the
community about important contribu-
tions senior citizens have made and are
making to the nation remains unfilled.

The recent profiling by Tribune
Religion of the stories and contributions
of Catholic Sisters in St Martin's
Convent on Nassau Street is a prime
example of community education
efforts which should occur regularly and
on a greater, multi-media scale.

Most churches havelarge populations
of senior citizens who are nation
builders in their own right - from men
who used to climb powerline poles with
spurs (boots with iron spikes) and string

power lines pole to pole before the
power company had “lift' or “bucket”
trucks, to petty-shop owners and opera-
tors who served their communities well,
selling items like a pound of sugar in a
brown paper bag or a 1/4 pound of
sausage in brown wax paper, to civil ser-
vants and teachers who served the
nation - some for 40, 50 and more years. ~

These senior citizens all have their
stories, which, since they are un-request-
ed, un-recorded, untold and un-appreci-
ated, are sadly taken with them into
their graves.

The motion which established the
Canadian National Grandparents Day
in 1995 read as follows:

“That, in the opinion of this House,
the government should consider desig-
nating the second Sunday in September
of each year as grandparents day in
order to acknowledge their importance
to the structure of the family in the nur-
turing, upbringing and education of chil-
dren.”

The motion was agreed to.

Churches do not need the govern-
ment to initiate an. annual occasion to
celebrate our nation's grandparents. I
think it's a good thing - I'd say to church
heads - let's just do it!

Rosary gets pop music makeover by Mich. musicians

@ DETROIT, Michigan

MADONNA is on Jennifer Zablocki’s
iPod. So is “The Madonna.”

The Detroit-area 12th-grade teacher
works up a sweat to the pop diva’s music
as well as songs honoring Mary, the moth-
er of Jesus. ;

Among the hundreds of popular and
Top 40 selections Zablocki has down-
loaded are the Rosary Tapes, a collection
of Roman Catholic prayers and medita-
tions for the rosary set to contemporary
music by a pair of jingle writers better
known for helping Ford Motor Co. sell
cars.

“J don’t make it to church every week,
so it’s just kind of my way of keeping in
touch with my faith,” said Zablocki, a 25-
year-old Catholic.

The Rosary Tapes have helped open
the centuries-old tradition to other
Christian denominations, according to

former rock station disc jockey Bill
Gildenstern and composer John Giaier,
both devout Catholics. The Michigan-
based music consultants have released
the fourth CD in the set and have seen
more than 1 million free downloads of an
earlier CD. 7

“Ti’s not a Catholic prayer, it’s a
Christian prayer,” Gildenstern said. “We
all have our traditions, but the bottom
line is we’re Christians. I see the rosary
not as something to, in any way, replace
our Sunday worship together, but rather
as a way to bring prayer into other areas
of our lives where we may typically not
pray, such as while driving or exercising.”

People with few qualms about listening
to something from a different denomina-
tion will have no trouble getting into the
Rosary Tapes, Zablocki said.

“It’s really nice-sounding music,” she
said. “It’s not like preaching to you or
anything like that. I don’t think anybody

would feel uncomfortable — if they
weren't Catholic — listening to it.”

The rosary is a series of prayers begin-
ning with the Apostle’s Creed, Lord’s
Prayer, three Hail Marys and one Gloria
Patri, also known as “Glory Be to the
Father.” Catholics believe that as the
rosary is recited, it allows a person to see
Jesus through Mary. A string of small
rosary beads typically is used to count
prayers.

Jesus’ birth, baptism, crucifixion and
resurrection are part of the 20 mysteries
that make up the Joyful, Sorrowful,
Glorious and Luminous mysteries in the
rosary.

Gildenstern and Giaier, who. helped
compose “Have You Driven A Ford —
Lately?” and have written thousands of
other advertising jingles in a more than
30-year collaboration, added original
lyrics, music, percussion, acoustic and
electric guitars, organs, pianos anci vocal

harmony to the devotional prayers.

“The mix with contemporary music is
rather unique, and I think it’s an attrac-
tion to the style of prayer for a number of
people,” said the Rev. Bob Konopa, a
priest at Saint Thomas Aquinas Church
in Saginaw, Mich.

‘“We’ve used them in the church during
reconciliation services for children. The
response has been good.”

Gildenstern said he was motivated to

create the Rosary Tapes to help recite the

prayers while driving, but Giaier said he
had to be sold on the project.

“T ~was selfishly thinking of how it
would look in our industry as being reli-
gious fanatics,” Giaier said. “I thought he
was out of his mind. I wanted no part of
it.” But Gildenstern took one of the mys-
teries, tapped out “Silent Night” on the
piano and had his wife sing the tradition-
al Christmas hymn while the rosary was
recited.

“God’s Big Yard”

FROM page 23 ©

The school started on Monday,
June 23 and ended on Friday, July 4
from 9am to lpm daily.

As in past years, VBS experienced
a large enrollment of almost 200 stu-
dents. Registration was free of
charge, and a wholesome hot lunch
was served everyday.

Students came from near and far,
and from many denominations to be
a part of this experience.

Tying in the lesson plan to the
programme's theme, “God’s Big
Backyard", drawn from Mark 12:29-
31, students learned that in God’s
big backyard ordinary people can

have an extraordinary impact on

- those around them by reaching out

in love. They were also encouraged
to serve God, serve their neighbours
and serve their community.

Moving some of the activities not
only outdoors, but beyond the
boundaries of the church, the older
children were treated to a number
of field trips, including:

e Chelsea’s Choice
Water Production Plant

e Mr Pretzels :

e The Harrold and Wilson Ponds
National Park

Vacation Bible School goers also
received special instruction in:

There were five classes in all with
assigned teachers and assistants for
the specific ages and groupings. In
addition to the teaching staff, there
were chaperones and a kitchen staff
of church members who volunteered
their time to prepare and serve
lunch everyday.

The entire staff, headed by our
new principal, Mrs Bernadette
Beneby, is to be commended for

their commitment and dedication to

ministry. Special thanks to our out-

going principal, Mrs Catherine

Roberts, for her many years of

untiring service.

_ Peace in the midst of the storm

FROM page 23

much loss, their lives were spared from

: the wrath of the storm. It is at this time
: that we can truly appreciate the good-
: ness of God and say, ‘if it had not been
: for the Lord on our side, where would

we be'?

When trials come your way let's not
be too quick to ask God to remove the
mountains for it may be his-will to give
us the strength to climb. It is a beautiful
view from the top of the mountain, but
we can only experience this by climbing
to the top. Just like it is in the natural so ~
is. it in the spiritual; when we are at the
top of the mountain not only does
everything below look smaller than it

really is, but from our vantage point we
: can see the beauty of the land around us

and we can also see farther than we can

from ground level.

Just like we experience storms in the

natural, we experience storms in the
: Spiritual. As a Christian, I have experi-

enced many spiritual storms over the

i years, but recently I experienced one
: that was very intensive. It was during
: those times that it appeared as if there
: would be no letting up of the ‘hail-
; stones' that were coming my way.

There were many sleepless nights,

but it was during these night seasons
; that God's presence became so very
: real to me. I talked to God or rather I

questioned him; “What have I done to-
deserve this kind of treatment? How

long God? How long is this going to
: last? There were times I felt like giv-
: ing up, but in those weak moments

God just held me in the hollow of his
hand and kept me safe and secured

from all alarm. Yes, I almost let go, but

God kept me close so I would not let
go.
During these vulnerable periods in

'? our lives we must be aware of the
: enemy's tactic. He will bombard your
: mind with all kinds of negative
: thoughts. But I thank God, for when I
: cried out to him like blind Bartimaeus,

he came to my rescue reassuring me
that all was well.

When God says, “it is well” - it is
WELL. There is no need to ask any-
more questions, just trust him like the
Apostle Paul did on his voyage to
Rome.

My friends, we need to stop trying to
box God in. We have to trust him

enough to know that he will work it

out. So give him the liberty to do it his
way. Sometimes God may chose to
redirect our focus by bringing about

something good and lovely to take our

minds off the storm, and experience
the kind oftpeace that only he can give.
He did it for me and I know that he

! can do it for you and when it is all over

you will be stronger knowing that it
matters not whether you go through
the waters, the flood or the fire, for you
are protected by the blood of Jesus and
God will give you a song in your night
season and all the day long.

if you trust God, my friends, he will

: give’ you the peace that passeth all

understanding - Praise the Lord!

GOVERNMENT vill likely
begin efforts to privatise the
Bahamas Electricity Corporation
(BEC) in 2009, Prime Minister
Hubert Ingraham said, adding
that he expected the process to
‘be easier than the one involving

‘the Bahamas Telecommunica-
tions Company (BTC).

“BEC is a-much easier corpo-

. ration to privatise than BTC. It
has never had all of BTC’s bad
habits, never had the excess of
employees BTC has had,” Mr

. Ingraham said.

“BEC is probably going to be
the next one to be privatised. It is
almost beyond the capacity of the
state to continue to provide the

PM moves











ieeanen

kind of generation capacity that is

required for the operations of

BEC.”
The Prime Minister also
acknowledged that the multi-mil-

lion dollar subsidies handed out ~

by Government on an annual
basis to the likes of Bahamasair,
the Water & Sewerage Corpora-
tion and the Broadcasting Cor-
poration of the Bahamas was
“unaffordable on a continuing
basis.”

PM rejects claims

By PACO NUNEZ
Tribune News Editor

PRIME Minister Hubert
Ingraham has. rejected claims
that changes made to the tax

regime as part of the 2008/09 |
budget were in any way covert |

or deceptive.

Mr Ingraham said he consid-
ered the claims, made in an arti- |

cle in Monday’ s INSIGHT, to

be insulting — "because none of |

it is true."

The prime minister said the |

budget, which aimed at lessening

the impact of global economic }
challenges — was forthrightly |

presented in parliament.

"We operated in an open

forum. The budget is debated in

it lays out there in documentary form all during the month of
June and comes into effect on the first of July. How it could then
be clandestine, or covert, or deceptive, escapes my under-

standing,” Mr Ingraham said.

The INSIGHT article claimed the tax hikes were deceptive,
based on the fact that they were not alluded to in the prime min-
ister’s Budget Communication and were not gazetted in the

newspapers.

A number of businesspersons claimed this threw their affairs
into chaos, as they were no longer sure what rates applied to

Bahamas could be testing ground for

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

THE Bahamas could be a testing
ground for the viability of various renew-
able energy initiatives, Environment Min-
ister Earl Deveaux said yesterday.

The government said it is actively seek-
ing to promote partnerships between
itself and private companies who are able
to offer alternative energy solutions, like
wind and solar power, for the Bahamas.

“We can use the Bahamas as a tem-
plate to explore all practical technolo-
gies and establish alternative energy
models,” Dr Deveaux said yesterday at a
renewable energy seminar.

As the Bahamas Electricity Corpora-
tion (BEC) struggles to meet the growing
demand for power, particularly in the
Family Islands, Minister of State for the
Environment Phenton Neymour said that
government “feels that there is an oppor-
tunity right at our fingertips to improve
the supply of energy in the Family Islands
and through New Providence using
renewable energy.”

Mr Neymour said government has
recently met with “a number” of compa-
nies from the United States who are
interested in forging business partner-

ships with the Bahamas in this poten-'

tially lucrative sector.
“One of the criteria of the National
Energy Policy is for us to set a goal for

the penetration or the amount of renew-
able energy that we provide. So we are
taking steps to meet with individuals who
provide renewable energy on a scale that
we need,” he said.

Mr Deveaux and Mr Neymour were
speaking at the United States govern-
ment-sponsored Caribbean Regional Sus-
tainable Energy High Level Seminar,
which took place at the Sheraton Cable
Beach resort in Nassau yesterday.

The event was organised in conjunc-
tion with the Organisation of American
States (OAS), the Inter-American Devel-
opment Bank (IDB) and the Inter-Amer-
ican Institute for Cooperation on Agri-
culture (IICA).

The conference drew Caribbean gov-
ernment ministers and officials, along

with officials from various US govern-
ment departments, multi-lateral organi-
sations and the private sector, to discuss
how the region can move towards greater
energy independence through exploiting

alternative energy sources like wind,.

water, sun, or geothermal power.

While world economies are suffering
from their dependence on oil, the price of
which is continually rising, island nations
in the Caribbean are particularly hard
hit.

In less than four years, the amount the
region is spending on oil imports has
risen by 370 per cent, Assistant Secretary
General of the Organisation of American
States Albert Ramdin said yesterday.

Addressing the opening ceremony of
the seminar, Dr Deveaux, along with

United States’ Ambassador to the
Bahamas Ned Siegei and Mr Ramdin,;
highlighted the many environmental and
economic risks associated with the con-
tinued use of oil as a primary source of
energy.

Dr Deveaux told those attending the
high level seminar that the Bahamas
“waits with baited breath for (their) rec-
ommendations” when it comes to creat-
ing a sustainable and environmentally-
friendly power supply.

“Despite heavy reliance on fossil fuels,
the Bahamas lacks any known
exploitable supply of conventional ener-
gy resources. This severe imbalance
between supply and demand puts our
nation in an extremely vulnerable state,”
he said. ;



renewable energy ideas — Minister

Ambassador Siegel said that rising oil
prices have precipitated a “tipping point”
in the debate over the use of alternative

energy sources versus continuing with |

the world’s current oil dependence.

“The cost of being totally dependent
on fossil fuels (has) gotten to an extent
where we cannot not afford to look at
these alternative energy and renewable
energy sources.”

Mr Ramdin added: “I hope that this
conference can convince and come up
with arguments to convince politicians
that it is wise to do something and it can
convince investors that it is good business
to invest in renewable energies.”

Dr Deveaux was optimistic that solu-
tions to the situation the Bahamas, and
the world, finds itself in, will be forth-
coming,

He referred to an article in ‘the June
edition of the respected international
magazine The Economist, which com-
pared an oncoming alternative energy
“boom” with the multi-billion dollar
information technology boom of the
1990s, which saw. the demand for and
supply of IT products and services sky-
rocket..

He said he believes that the speed with

. Which countries convert to using alter- '

native energy sources, like solar and
wind, “will be a lot faster than any tech-
nological advance the world has experi-
enced before.”

GOLDEN Isles MP Charles
Maynard criticized PLP chairman
and MP for Englerston Glenys
Hanna-Martin in the House of
Assembly yesterday.

Mr Maynard, who was answer-
ing Mrs Hanna-Martin on her
defence of the PLP’s record in
the handling of the Lynden Pin-
dling International Airport,
opened with a quote from the
Ministry of Education’s weekly
newsletter, stating that “convic-

tion is only worthy when backed

up by conduct.”

Upon hearing this, Mrs Han-
na-Martin jumped to her feet and
responded that if Mr Maynard

was suggesting that she was some-_

how insincere or not factual in
her presentation-then Mr, May-
nard should highlight the ‘areas



or not factual.

Mr Maynard answered, how-
ever, that his comments were
directed more toward West End
and Bimini MP Obie Wilchcombe
who had discussed the fact that
increases were coming to the air-

» port by user fees for passengers.

Mr. Maynard also questioned
why a monopoly was allowed to

exist for food services at LPIA
for decades. “She (Mrs Hanna-
Martin) spoke about the renam-
ing of the LPIA. Now I want to
put that into context, because that
was July 2006. And the govern-
ment at that day decided that they
wanted to do a cluster of things
around that time — to me I think
that was the beginning of their
election campaign.

“T say that because it was

rushed events, that were designed
to profile certain key individuals
from the PLP’s past. They
renamed the National Insurance
Building to the Clifford Darling
building. They decided to rename
the airport after Lynden Pindling.

I have no problem with that

either. Except, evendumb: me;

and I say dumb me. because J ain’t **

no aviation expert, but I know

one thing for sure, every single
airport in the world has a call sign,
and.in our case its NAS, and if
you want to change the name of
the airport you have to do more
than put a sign in front of it,” he
said. Mrs Hanna-Martin stood on
a point of order and told Mr May-
nard that he quite rightly
acknowledged that when it comes
to aviation he is “dumb”.

“The airport would continue
to be know as NAS even with the
renaming. The renaming process
is not effected by that. The
renaming process involves
processes such as the notice to
airmen, which was done, also the
relevant notices to international
civil aviation organizations. The

airport has appropriately been —

renathed concurrent with the act
itself, ? she saidy 0)

‘Tendency for
public officers
not to speak to
the press’

THERE is a general ten-
dency on the part of public
officers “not to make them-
selves available to the
press,” Prime Minister Ingra-
ham told The Tribune.

He said this is to some
extent the result of a politi-
cal culture that has devel-
oped in the Bahamas over
the years, “where politicians
have not taken too kindly to
public officers who speak
out.”

However, Mr Ingraham
said that the press should
have access to the head of
every government depart-
ment, “because we encour-
age them to speak.

“There is nothing secret
about this business — this is
public business,” he said.

Man charged —
in connection
with fatal
traffic crash

A MAN charged in con-
nection with a traffic acci-
dent, which claimed the life
of a woman in Long Island
last month, was arraigned in
the Magistrate’s Court yes: :
terday.

Tyrone Romer, 41, of Doc-
tor’s Creek, Long Island, has
been charged with killing in
the course of dangerous dri-
ving.

Romer was yesterday
charged in Magistrate’s
Court 6, Parliament Street,
before Magistrate Renee
McKay.

It is alleged that Romer at
or around 9.23pm on Friday,
June 27, drove a truck with
the license plate number T
792 north on Queens High-
way, Long Island, in a man-
ner dangerous to the public,
thereby causing the death of
Elizabeth Bowles.

According to initial
reports, Bowles, 47, the
country’s 20th traffic fatality,
died after being struck bya .
truck while cycling north
along Queens Highway
sometime around 9.30 pm on
June 27.

Bowles was taken to the
local clinic suffering from
head and chest injuries, but
died around 2.07 am the fol-
lowing day.

Romer pleaded not guilty
to the charge of killing in the
course of dangerous driving
and opted to have his case
tried in the Mapistiate’ s
Court.

He was granted bail in the
sum of $10,000 with two
sureties.

The case was adjourned to
October 6.

In brief |PM pledges to prosecute

corrupt Customs officers,

officials who break law

Ingraham asks the public
to report all complaints

@ By PACO NUNEZ
Tribune News Editor

PRIME Minister Hubert Ingra-
ham says his government will
prosecute all public servants who
break the law.

Responding to complaints
about corrupt Customs officers
printed in Monday’s INSIGHT,
Mr Ingraham admitted that
authorities have not handled the
problem correctly in the past.

“There Has been a reluctance
on the part of government to
prosecute persons engaging in
activities that are dishonest or
fraudulent, which includes a
minority of Customs officers.
That will change,” the prime min-
ister said. He asked members of
the public suffering intimidation
at the hands of rogue officers to
report the situation immediate-
ly, and “test whether or not the
government is willing to enforce
the anti-corruption laws — I think
they will find that we are.”

Mr Ingraham assured the pub-
lic that the identity of all com-
plainants will be kept secret. He
noted that this was the ‘practice
for dealing with reports of ille-
gality under the first FNM gov-
ernment, when the authorities
even offered rewards for infor-
mation on public servants who
accepted or solicited bribes.

The prime minister also point-
ed out that a Customs officer can
only be dishonest if somebody is
willing to pay him. “And the peo-
ple who would normally pay are
not ordinary persons who are just
bringing in a couple hundred dol-
lars worth of goods, because that
is not in their interest. Those who
pay would be big importers, and
over the years, some of them have
been caught and fined.”

Admitting that the Customs
Department is “archaic”, Mr
Ingraham said: “There are many
things to be done, we accept
that.”

To this end, the prime minister
said, the government is provid-
ing the Customs Department with

MAGISTRATE Renee McKay is expected to
make her ruling in the sexual harassment casé of
popular media personality Darold Miller on mee
tember 2, it was announced yesterday.

Mr Miller is accused of soliciting sexual favours from
a female GEMS 105.9FM employee between February
2 and March 22 of last year while he served as the com-

pany’s chief operating officer.

In a final attempt to prove his client’s innocence,
Mr Miller’s attorney Michael Kemp told the court
yesterday that defence believes that the virtual com-
plainant has been thoroughly discredited in the case.

Mr Kemp admitted that Mr Miller had been in a
position of authority over the virtual complainant,
but questioned the evidence that alluded to Mr
Miller offering her job benefits for sexual favours.

“significantly increased
resources,” including 50 new Cus-
toms officers, 25 new guards and
a number of support personnel.

He said: “They should begin
training soon. And hopefully we
are going to be able to deal with
the overtime at the airport for
Customs and Immigration; impact
upon our cost there, by introduc-
ing a shift system.

“These new people who are

“So over a period of time, we
will get Customs to be the 24/7
operation it needs to be, and the
same thing will apply to immi-
gration.” i
Acting Comptroller of Customs
Anthony Adderley told The Tri-
bune that anyone who has a com-

plaint about Customs should .

report it to his office.

Mr Adderley pledged that he
will “vigorously” seek to address
all concerns, once sufficient evi-
dence is produced. He said the

“J don’t imagine that some

‘Mr Kemp told the court that the virtual com-

plainant herself testified that Mr Miller had not
promised her anything. Mr Kemp went on to criticise
the virtual complainant, calling her ungrateful.

“Could you imagine someone throwing out a life-
line to you and you drag them through the courts for
political reasons or for a deal,” Mr Kemp said.

Mr Kemp told the court that the virtual com-
plainant was used as a tool by those who were

opposed to his client, noting that the virtual com-

told the court.

gone too far. Mr Kemp also questioned whether the
complainant’s distress had, in fact, been genuine.

Magistrate McKay adjourned the
matter to September 2 at 10am, stating that she will

New funding scheme for airport

THE BEST news coming out of the
House of Assembly yesterday before mem-
bers broke for the summer recess — return-
ing on Wednesday, September 17 — is that
the dead hand of government has at last
been lifted from the development of Lyn-
den Pindling International Airport.

In exchange for the Canadian company,
which has a 30-year airport lease to manage
the Nassau Airport Development Compa-
ny (NAD), being allowed to decide the
user fee structure at the airport, govern-
ment will no longer have to subsidise the
airport’s costs.

Over the past seven years this subsidy’

has totalled $45 million. In future it will
be the airport users who will pay for the air-
port — not government.

The Bahamas’ international airport had
no chance of ever raising its standards as
long as politicians had a say in its manage-
ment,

The airport has always been crippled by
too much political interference — too many
“Bros” who couldn’t say no if one of their
constituents needed a job.

These constituents — few of whom qual-
ified for this type of employment — always
got dumped onan already overstaffed air-
port.

Now airport user charges will be deter-
mined by the NAD based on the cost of the
airport development.

It was either this, or plans for the creation
of one of the best airports of the region
would have collapsed.

The Bahamas government could not
have afforded to underwrite the debt with-
out putting a heavy tax burden on the
Bahamian people.

About $430 million is needed to furid
the terminal project and refinance the cur-
rent debt, which totals $80 million.

And so the Bahamas has wise lenders to
thank for placing government in a posi-
tion where it had no alternative but to
make an equally wise decision — amend
the Airport Authority Act, which it did

yesterday at its final sitting for the sum-

mer.

“The purpose of this amendment is to
limit the current discretion in the setting of
fees at the LPIA by the Airport. Authori-
ty,” Mr Ingraham told the House.

“This limitation of the discretion in fee

setting is viewed as a precondition to the.

successful completion of the non-guaran-
teed financing for the airport redevelop-
ment project.

“The lenders,” said Mr Ingraham, “have

' indicated that they are unwilling to lend

substantial sums which the Airport Author-
ity will be borrowing if the setting of rates
is going to be dependent upon the exercise
of discretion by a minister of the govern-
ment, who is subject to all of the pressures
that politicians come under from time to
time.

“And,” continued the Prime Minister,
“they (the lenders) had as their background
what happened when the Airport Author-
ity gave out a management contract and the

. length of time it took the government to

settle upon the fees which they could
charge.

“And they were unwilling to place them-
selves in such a position ever again.

“If we, therefore, wish to borrow their
money, this is the condition they require.”

As a result the $450 million to redevel-
op the airport is to be funded exclusively
from revenue made at the airport. .

However, regulations will be incorpo-
rated into the commercial contracts
between NAD and the Airport Authority
to set out principles that NAD must take
into consideration when determining the
level of airport charges for any particular
period.

NAD also will be required to notify the

Airport Authority at least once a year of

any pending change — or no change — in

airport charges.

Several Opposition members seemed
concerned that NAD could price LPIA
out of business if it were allowed to deter-
mine the airport’s fare structure. -

That is something that government’s do,
but not private enterprise.

The Canadians who now manage NAD
know only too well that to have higher
user rates than airports of the region would

“put them out of business.

Private enterprise never knowingly
makes decisions that will cripple itself — it

leaves that to politicians who generally put —
. their political survival before the country’s

bottom line.

FNM must be
aware business
as usual will
not cut it

‘EDITOR, The Tribune.

Everyone who resides in the
Commonwealth of The Bahamas
or who would read and listen to
our news media are more than
aware that Ortland H Bodie Jr, is
a long time advocate for and sup-
porter of the Rt Hon Prime Min-
ister, Hubert Alexander Ingra-
ham, MP, PC.

I make absolutely no apologies
for this, despite my occasional
public disagreement over the
direction in which he is seeking to
take the nation. While Mr Ingra-
ham may appear to be a demi-
god to many, I hold no such false
and patently sacrilegious position.

Yes, he is gifted beyond mea-
sure but after several years of
being in the proverbial saddle, it
may well be that the PM is either
not aware that the middle class
Bahamian, et al, is catching eter-
nal hell right here in our beloved
nation.

There are times, in my consid-
ered opinion, when the PM acts
and behaves as if he is a man

from Mars and not a mere mortal :

who lives in The Bahamas. A
measure of apparent insensitivity
and boorishness comes across,
palatably, far too often.

Take for instance the rapidly
increasing cost of living index.
Gasoline for one’s motor vehicle
or business machines is beyond
the reach of many due to high
prices. Our roads and national
infrastructure continue to be ina
disgraceful state of repair.

Check out East Street, from
North to South. Check out
Robinson Road from Blue Hill
Road up to Soldier Road. Check
out the road works down at Milo
Butler Highway which seems to
be taking a generation to com-
plete. Clarence Bain Building is
an eyesore. The Rodney Bain
Building, a national asset, remains
rotting on Parliament Street.

ing, food and other basic necessi-
ties are off the chain and there is
no relief in sight. The FNM has
long regarded itself as a caring
and compassionate government
but, pray tell me, where is the
promised relief that it and it’s
leaders held out to a trusting
Bahamian electorate?

Parliament will soon adjourn
for the summer holidays (some
two to three months) and we have
not heard a single word from the
PM and his administration as to
exactly what sort of relief will he
and his team offer'the people of
the nation over the short and the
long haul. How come? When Par-
liament reconvenes will gasoline
still be under B$6.00 or will it be
in the range of B$8.00 to B$10.00
per gallon?

When will the FNM adminis-

.tration require that all red plated

cars be parked in the govern-
ment’s holding areas on holidays
and weekends? Who pays for the
gasoline-and diesel used by civil
servants on such days, while doing
their personal and family busi-
ness?

Another bone of contention is‘

the seemingly endless spending
of millions of dollars of our mon-
ey to upgrade and improve
telecommunications services at
BaTelCo, if we are supposed to
be privatising it within months?
Are these upgrades and their

_ costs going to be factored in

whenever Blue Water or anyone
else were to purchase BaTelCo?

By the way, who are the prin-
cipals in Blue Water and are there

any Bahamian individuals or busi-

ness houses which are a part of

‘that consortium? If so, who are

they and are they connected polit-

ically? As a Bahamian taxpayer, I

_ demand and will ensure, through

the courts if necessary, that there
is full and frank disclosure to the
people of The Bahamas, no more,
no less.

People always cuss out
Bahamians for not cultivating the .
habit of saving in local banks but
they never opine as to why there .
is a marked reluctance of our peo-
ple to place their hard earned
funds in the same.

Interest rates in this country,
on savings and fixed deposits, are

‘a national disgrace and a joke, to

say the least. The average bank

pays 2 to 3 per cent on savings

accounts. For fixed deposits, one
may get 5 or 5 per cent depending
on the size of the same. The
banks will then lend out our funds
at 15 per cent or more per annum
and the beat goes on. .

Mr Ingraham means well, I am
sure, but good intentions are sim-

’ ply not enough to cut it, from a

consumer point of view. Where
are The Price Control and The
Rent Control Boards?

Since May, 2007 not a single
business or store has been pub-
licly charged with breaching the
regulations of these two obsolete
boards. In fact, who are on the
various statutory boards and
when were the members appoint-
ed? When will the national ener-
gy policy be announced, if ever?

‘What about LNG? What is the
hold up? What did the DPM
agree to during the recent Cari-
com meeting with the British For-
eign Office? The FNM and its
erstwhile leader must be aware,
by now, that business as usual will
no longer cut it. To God then,
The Great Yahweh, in all things,
be the glory.

Transparency and fairness

EDITOR, The Tribune.

I AM concerned that what

process following the call for pro-
posals by BEC for Proposals for

certain parties are in discussions
on an unrelated'‘matter — LNG,
which discussions could prejudice

transparency of the process of this:

think that his appearing on Talk

viewed is the way to go to get the

I ask the chair, attorney Got-

any line of fairness in the terms

Mr Samson is now talking
about wind and other energy
forms outside of LNG which
clearly indicates AES has gone
considerably beyond their previ-
ous discussions. Government
should until the BEC RFP is con-
cluded stop any discussions with

in brief BEM leadership expresses sadness

over deaths of husband and wife

THE leadership at Bahamas
Faith Ministries (BFM) has
expressed sadness over the deaths
of Bloneva and Asa Bethel, the
husband and wife who died ina
murder and subsequent suicide.

“While we all may have our
thoughts as to what and how such
a tragic event could happen, the
truth is that there is no simple
explanation to any of this and no
doubt there is historical informa-
tion we may never know,” said
the BFM in a statement late on
Tuesday on behalf of Senior Pas-
tor Myles Munroe and Pastor

PETA I

Richard Pinder.

This statement came hours
after Mr Bethel was found dead
hanging in a shower at Her
Majesty’s Prison.

It is believed that he committed
suicide while on remand at the
prison.

Mrs Bethel, 41, was found
stabbed to death by a steak knife
on July 15 at the couple’s Cox
Way apartment off East Street
south.

Her husband was charged with
killing her.

She had severe and extensive
knife wounds to her right arm and
shoulder.

While expressing sadness over
the deaths, BFM also noted that

electrical shortage’

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

FREEPORT - Police believe
that an electrical shortage may
have been the cause of a fire that
destroyed a major foodstore in
Marsh Harbour, Abaco, on Tues-
day.

Chief Supt Basil Rahming,
press liaison officer for the north-
ern region, reported that
Maxwell’s Supermarket on Pow-
erline Road sustained damage
estimated at “several million dol-
lars.”

. Mr Rahming said firefighters
and crime scene officers in Abaco
conducted an investigation into
the fire, which started late Mon-
day evening.

According to reports, a police
officer was on mobile patrol in
Marsh Harbour at about 10.15pm
when he saw a fire blazing in the

- eastern section of the foodstore.

' Mr Rahming said the officer
alerted the volunteer fire brigade.
The fire was brought under con-
trol around 5am on Tuesday.

He said investigations were car-
ried out to determine the cause.

“Scenes-of-crime officers, along
with firefighters, examined the

smoldering remains and deter-
mined that the fire started in an
eastern generator room, possibly
as a result of an electrical short-
age,” said Mr Rahming.

Mr Rahming said the building,
owned by Chad Albury of Marsh:
Harbour, was fully insured.

As a consequence of the fire,

more than 40 people are now out
of a job and many of Abaco’s
communities have lost their pri-
mary grocery supplier.

Residents are predicting that
the loss of Maxwell’s will have a
devastating effect on the island’s
economy.

“People were already experi-
encing difficulties finding basic
things like milk, bread and cheese.
The shelves of the foodstores are

often empty. It was bad enough‘

before, but now with Maxwell’s
gone, it’s going to be even worse,”
said Abaco resident Julian Lock-
hart.

there are limitations to what any
outreach organisation can do in
carrying out its functions.

“The results of our ministry’s
work are evident in the countless
success stories among the young
and the old in our community,”
said BFM. “However, like any
other community organisation,
church, ministry, private or public
company, we are quite aware of
our limitations as to how much
and how far we can go in attempt-
ing to meet the needs of people
who come to us.”

The BFM further said : “We

decisions of individuals and must
depend on the wisdom and good
judgment of each in facing their
life’s challenges.”

Referring to the Bethels, the
BFM said that it wished to ensure
“everyone that (the church) did
all in (its) power and God’s grace
to serve them.

In the wake of the death of the
couple, BFM advises couples not
to wait until martial difficulties

reach a crisis point.

Instead, the church said that
those involved should seek help
from a pastor, counselor or other
social service professional.

The BFM also said that indi-
viduals should not let “pride” pre-
vent them from seeking such
help.

“May we all use the incident
as an opportunity to seek to be a
part of the healing to relation-
ships in our nation.”

SEVERE unemployment is driving peo-
ple from the countryside into Haiti's over-
crowded cities and ultimately out of the
country in search of work, as families who
have relatives working abroad are consid-
erably less impoverished than others.

There is no industry in Port-de-Paix and
over 80 per cent of the city's 117,000-
strong population is unemployed.

Men and women can only draw an
income by creating work for themselves,
that is by driving a tap-tap (taxi service via
scooter or modified pick-up truck), ferry-
ing goods in.a wheelbarrow, sifting sand
by the riverbed to sell, or working as
street vendors.

Such limited options mean families are
faced with the harsh reality of needing to
escape Haiti in order to earn an income
tnat will support their loved ones.

Former plantain farmer Georges
Renaud gave up his farm in the outskirts
of Port-de-Paix when he could no longer
find people to work on the land because
so many people moved into the cities,
where they found no relief.

“They barely keep their heads above
water," Mr Renaud said.

"There are no jobs so you have to make
your own job.

"Then you'll have a family with five or
six children and one person working. °
Things are getting worse and worse every



day."

He said it is only the families who have
a relative working in the Bahamas or the
United States who are able to earn
enough to house their families in the cities
and provide them with a sustainable
income. ~

One woman, whose husband moved to
Nassau five years ago, survives by selling
rice and juice he sends her, and has been
able to build a relatively comfortable
home for herself.

Similarly, Lavaud Destinas, a cook who
served the Grace Church Short-Term Mis-
sions Team, survives on the salary her hus-
band earns in the Bahamas.

She moyed to Nassau with him in 1982
and had her two children there, but four
years later Bahamian immigration officials
caught up with the Haitian mother of two,
and she fled back to Haiti in fear ot being
deported.

Madame Lavaud now sees her tusband
only when he visits her in Port-de-Paix for
about a month each year.

She sees her Bahamian children, now
aged 23 and 25, even less.

"Because of the situation in Haiti, if he
stays here he won't find a living, so to
make a living,-we need to get out," she
said. é

"And because he is working and he
sends me money he has earned in the
Bahamas, I am able to survive here, and
my life is more comfortable than many
people here who are starving,” she said.

EDUCATED young men in Port-de-Paix are
tempted to illegally emigrate to the United
States or the Bahamas simply to find work.

They have heard the horror stories of people
who do not make the journey, of the boats over-
crowded with migrants sinking in Bahamian
waters and the number of people who have
drowned.

Many people in Port-de-Paix have lost rela-
tives on such journeys, and yet they are not
deterred.

Louiseize Bersilien has been to Nassau twice
by boat, paying 7,000 Haitian dollars or
US$1,000 for the nine-day voyage, only to be
turned away by Bahamian immigration officials
when he reached land.

But that did not deter the 'tap-tap' scooter
driver from attempting to escape Haiti yet again.
"I don't like the trip but I would do it again,"

he said. :

"[ just want to work, that is the only reason I
was going."

Treguste Wilfred, 25, said he would sail to
Nassau in a matchbox if he had one.

"Even if it will sink I would do it," he said.

"I deny miy life because I have misery in Haiti.
Why should I stay here?"

Mr Wilfred has no wife or children, and ;
moved to Port-de-Paix from his parents’ home
in the countryside to find work, but soon
learned there is no employment, even in the
cities. ,

In order to earn enough to survive, Mr Wil-
fred charges people to ferry loads across town in
his wheelbarrow, making $10 or $20 Haitian dol-
lars a day (less than $3 US), which he says is
enough for him to buy food, but not enough to

EVVARD

save for a better life elsewhere.

"The only reason I would like to go there (the
Bahamas), is to work," he said. "I would do any-
thing, just to have a job."

Benedic Balthasar, a 32-year-old father of
three, said he would leave Haiti if that is what it
takes to find employment, but he would prefer
to stay in Port-de-Paix with his family and have
the opportunity to work.

The educated father used to work as a marine
biologist but no longer has an employer or the
equipment to do what he was trained to do.

Mr Balthasar cannot afford to send his chil-
dren, aged six, nine and 11, to school, and
spends his days wandering around, looking for
ways of making enough money to feed his fami-
ly.
Without work, Mr Balthasar relies on friends
who are working to provide his family with food.

"If in any way you can help us J would like
you to help us," he pleaded.

"My children's future is dependent on God
now because | am not able to help them."

Although he has friends in the Bahamas, Mr
Balthasar is not keen to make the voyage him-
self.

"T am not interested in going illegally," he
said. ,

"If I found an organisation who would take
me, I would go, but it would be better to stay
here and have help, not just for me, but for all
the people."

Herard John, 18, agreed he does not want to
be a runaway, he simply wants a chance in life.

Herard's cousin has lived in Nassau for ten
years, but he has not had the opportunity to go
himself.

"Tt must be wonderful," he said.

"No fight like in Haiti — we fight with the gov-
ernment, fight with crime, fight to survive."

court docket in relation to this matter.

Mr Wilson, a 32-year-old Jamaican, was
killed at Gregory House apartment complex
during the early hours of June 3. His body
was found on the second floor of the two-
storey complex in a pool of blood in front of
a neighbour’s door.

The deceased came up to the second floor
— his apartment was on the first floor — seek-
ing assistance for his wounds. Neighbours
were initially hesitant to open the door. How-
ever, they called police for assistance and
eventually came outside to see Mr Wilson in
a pool of blood.

The victim was taken to nearby Princess
Margaret Hospital where he was pronounced
dead. Mr Wilson’s death was classified by
police as the country’s 31st murder of the
year.

Prime minister

moves amendment

to the Airport
Authority Act

FROM page one

Under current Bahamian
law, the Airport Authority,
with the consent of the Minis-
ter responsible, is allowed to
determine the Airport charges
from time to time.

However this limitation,
Prime Minister Ingraham said
is an essential “pre-condition”
to the successful undertaking
of a non-governmental guar-
antee loan to undertake the
extension works at LPIA.

“The lenders have indicated
that they are unwilling to lend
substantial sums which the
Airport Authority will be bor-
rowing if the setting of rates is
going to be dependent upon
the exercise of discretion by
a minister of the government,
who is subject to all of the
pressures that politicians come
under from time to time.

“And they had as their
background what happened
when the Airport Authority
gave out a management con-

tract and the length of time it
took the government to settle
upon the fees which they
could charge.

“And they were unwilling
to place themselves in such a
position ever again. If we
therefore wish to borrow their
money, this is the condition
they require,” Mr Ingraham
said.

The cost of the LPIA Rede-
velopment Project is estimated
at $450 million and is to be
funded exclusively from rev-
enue derived from the airport.

This development Mr Ingra-
ham highlighted does not

require a government guaran- -

tee, and will not require any
tax dollars to pay for it.

A significant portion of the
Nassau Airport Development
Company (NAD)’s revenues
is derived from aeronautical
fees such as landing, and air-
craft parking fees, passenger
facility charges and other fees
applied directly to air carri-
ers, aircraft operators and pas-

sengers.

“The passenger facility fees,
which was implemented last
year, is now $15 for interna-
tional travel, and the fee for.
domestic travel is now $5.
Those fees were set in March
or April 2007,” Mr Ingraham
said.

These fees which NAD
impose currently exclude secu-

‘rity fees, which are collected
to offset the cost of security
services provided by the Air-
port Authority.

“T previously told Parlia-
ment that it was the intention
of the government to bring
security services under the
same umbrella as the man-
agement of the airport and I
expect that, that will be done
not long from now,” he said.

In amending the Airport
Authority Act to allow the
Airport Authority the power
to charge fees, Mr Ingraham
said that the government is
unwilling to give them that
authority without some “con-
ditionality”.

These conditions, Mr Ingra-
ham said, will be procedures
that the Airport Authority
must follow prior to any
approval of any increase in
fees.

“These Regulations or pro-
visions will also be incorpo-
rated into the commercial con-
tracts between NAD and the
Airport Authority and would
set out principles which NAD
will have to take into consid-
eration when determining the
level of Airport Charges for
any particular period of time.
NAD would also, be required
to.notify the Airport: Aasthor-
ity at least once a year of any
pending change or if there will
be no change in airport
charges or the implementa-
tion of any new charge,” he
said. :

The principles that would
be taken into account would
include:

e International Standards
(ICAO’s Policies on Charges

-for Airports and Air Naviga-
tion Systems)

e A comparison of charges
of similar size and level-of-ser-
vice airports in the Caribbean
region and Florida.

Additionally, the amount of
the charges, as determined by
NAD, should be such that the
airport charges in combina-
tion with all other airport rev-
enues shall be sufficient to:

e fund operating and capital
expenditures including fund-
ing of a major maintenance
reserve account,

e generate sufficient rev-
enues for debt service,

e fund debt service reserve
and other required reserve
accounts,

e provide an agreed return,
if any, to the shareholder,
which is now the government
of the Bahamas.

NAD also will be required
to disclose publicly through
newspaper advertisements
and directly to impacted air
carriers a notification of any
intent to change the amount
or application of an airport
charge or the introduction of a
new airport charge.

This airport notification
charge would have to disclose:

e the rationale of the pro-
posed increase or changes,

° it must be issued at least
180 days prior to the proposed
effective date,

¢ it must invite comments
on such proposed changes
from members of the public
and from air carriers,

¢ it will also have to consult
with the impacted air carriers
to discuss the proposed
changes to the airport charges.

NAD would also be
required to provide a response
directly to any comments
received in response to the
proposed increases on its web-
site.

Only once this process is
completed would the Airport
Authority be obliged to con-
sider any increases proposed
by NAD for aeronautical fees.

Firm holds meeting —

with community over
proposed development

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

FREEPORT — Cavalier Con-
struction this week met with mem-
bers of the Hope Town commu-
nity to discuss its proposal to build
a high-end second home develop-
ment on one the island’s cays.

The company is expected to
submit an Environmental Impact
Assessment (EIA) to the govern-
ment and to the Hope Town local
government officials for the Island
Club project on Joe Cay.

In keeping with the govern-
ment’s desire for public consulta-
tion, Cavalier held a preliminary
public meeting last week at the
Hope Town Harbour Lodge.

A large number of residents
and second home owners attend-
ed the meeting and expressed
their concerns about the develop-
ment at Joe Cay.

They were concerned about the
number of mangroves that would
be affected, the size of the boat
basin for the owners’ docks, the
scope of the dredging to be done,
and the planned waste system.
There were also concerns
expressed about the appearance
of the project, and about main-
taining the “quaintness” of the
island.

Cavalier Construction said it
believes that the small 19-home
development project on Joe Cay is

_in keeping with the government’s
desire to build small, yet compat-
ible, projects in the Family Islands.

Vernon Wells, the developer’s
deputy managing director and
owner of a home Hope Town,
said his company plans to build
second homes that fit into the
‘lifestyle of Hope Town.

“Hope Town is a beautiful, idyl-
lic location for a small develop-
ment”, he said. :

During the meeting, chairman
of Cavalier Richard Wilson,
explained the concept of the
development, the estimated time
line of the project, and the com-
pany’s building history.

Ian Fleming, of Bruce LaFleur
Architects, gave a brief overview
‘of the’ design project; iticludin
the: ay6utiittome plans, ari
landscape design using native
plants while assimilating their
design to match the Hope Town
island style. He also unveiled the
first set of conceptual plan alter-
natives.

Environmental consultants for
the project Michelle Bethell of
Bethell Environmental and Keith
Bishop of Islands By Design will
work on the EIA for Joe’s Cay.

They are both approved to do
work in the Bahamas by the gov-
ernment through the BEST
(Bahamas Environment, Science
and Technology) Commission.

The developers and consultants
viewed a mangrove video that had

been arranged by the residents to
help illustrate some of their con-
cerns.

The developers said they will
take into account the concerns of
the residents. They assured the
residents that many of the con-
cerns will be reviewed during the
EIA process and during the
review of project alternatives.

“We felt the night went well,”
said Mr Wilson. “The full time
residents and second home own-
ers had some very valid concerns
that will be addressed in the EIA
study that we are due to com-
mence.

“We are excited about this pro-
ject but we are mindful that we

must respect the locals while also
building a sellable development,”
he said.

Cavalier Construction is well
known in the Bahamas for build-
ing high-end homes throughout
the islands. They have also built
some of the country’s largest pro-
jects, including the Savoie Resi-
dence at the Abaco Club, Bayroc
Condos in New Providence, and
the Atlantis Convention Centre
on Paradise Island, among oth-
ers.

Cavalier has also developed
three projects themselves, includ-
ing Lyford Place, Harbour Breeze,
and the Pineapple Fields in
Eleuthera.

‘well why are you raising this
rate here, why is this so?' and
you answer the question and
so people are edified as to
what you are doing. But that
didn’t happen. The opposition
was quite lazy, quite frankly,
and the merchant class didn’t
do much about it either.

“T have said over and over
again that in places like Bar-
bados and Jamaica, when the
budget is presented, the
accountant firms put out a
paper or the private sector
group puts out a paper, either
critiquing or pointing out to
people what the budget will
do, et cetera. In the Bahamas,
we don’t do such things,” Mr
Ingraham said.

He noted that strictly speak-
ing, newspapers need only be
used as the official gazette
when government feels it is
necessary, as the House is the
real gazette. "So the question
about not disclosing it is total-
ly bogus, totally untrue."

According to Mr Ingraham,
the changes were never con-
scious effort to increase tax-
es, but rather part of an effort
to “rationalise” a confusing
tax regime which was open to
abuse. :

He said: "I gave examples
when J spoke, I gave exam-
ples of some goods that would
go-up by three per cent (from
42 to 45 per cent) and some
that would go down by two
per cent (from 17 to 15 per
cent), and I said that if the
same amount of goods came
in over the year, the net effect
would be an increase of $5
million in revenue.

"I talked about dealing with
things like furniture: if it came
in for a house it had one rate,
if it came in for an office it
had another rate — that was
foolish. I talked about bitu-
men for roads, which if it
came in to tar the road it had
one duty rate, and if it came in
for another (reason) it had
another rate.”

Mr Ingraham said that gov-
ernment determined that a
number of concessions were
needed to offset the effects of
the global economic downturn
and rising oil prices on those
in the Bahamas who were
being hardest hit.

The budget was therefore
crafted to reduce the cost of
living for ordinary people, to
promote energy saving devices
and to provide assistance to
those who want to refinance
their homes or consolidate
mortgage debts.

“A number of people are
hurting, and we also wanted
to provide assistance to first
time homeowners, and we
wanted to provide real prop-

erty tax exemptions for people

who are buying a home for
the first time, and we wanted
to impact upon the cost of
building materials,” Mr Ingra-
ham said. “We wanted to

make sure that BEC did not
pass on the full impact of the

‘increase of energy products

on the surcharge, we wanted
to rationalise thé duties to
reduce the opportunity for
Customs officers to exercise a
discretion and make a choice
as to which rate an item would
be charged at (see Customs
story, page 3).”

During the rationalisation
exercise, he said, the govern-

_ment found a few items which

were inconsistent with their
categories, and therefore more
substantial changes were
made.

He gave the example of
motor oil, which went from 27
to 45 per cent.

‘He said the goods most
impacted were: vehicles; ciga-
rettes, wood furniture, elec-
trical appliances, plastic goods
and beverages.

He added: “The airport,
which no one has complained
about yet, is where the hefty
increase took place, because
baggage did not pay stamp
tax. And when we did the
rationalisation exercise, we
said it does not matter
whether you have a television
that comes in under (local
shipping company) Betty K,
or at the airport, you will pay

eth: sped

ey

the same rate. . . This would
have taken some items up as
much as 10 per cent. But many
items would have been low-
ered, also."

Mr Ingraham added that
considering the many cuts and
concessions made, the budget
will either turn out to be “rev-
enue neutral” or result in a
loss.

"On balance we felt that we
had done a wonderful thing
for the Bahamas and ordinary
people would benefit most.
And those who would pay
more would be persons who
are better off than ordinary
folks, who are going to buy a
desk for their house, and
would have gotten a low rate
of duty, because they said it
would be for the house and
not for the office.

“We thought that they
ought to pay the same thing,”
he said.

Asked to account ot the
outrage from businesspersons,
Mr Ingraham said: “People
expect free-bees; they believe
we are able to pull out of the

" sky all of these things and give -

Bay Street this vitalisation
thing without any Customs
duty, give the homeowners
this, give the real property tax
that, reduce the food cost,
construction costs, BEC, and
say, ‘Oh, that’s wonderful, that
doesn't cost me anything'."

He added: "What one
would hope in a developed
society, as the Bahamas ought
to be, agencies like the Cham-
ber of Commerce would act .
as a trade representative for
their members, and when the
government produces the bud-
get at the end of May, that
they would themselves go
through it, and inform their
various members as to the
impact it is likely to have upon
the business they are engaged
in. They and the opposition.

"What we have done has
provided substantial relief for
people, for children, for school
lunches, for vegetables, for
healthy lifestyles.”

marijuana. The discovery was
reportedly made near Stuart's
Cove by officers from the
Lyford Cay Police Station while
on patrol. According to initial
police reports, the officers, while
in the area around 1 am,
observed a suspicious sports util-
ity vehicle parked near the
shoreline. Upon approaching
the vehicle, two men reportedly
fled the SUV into nearby bush-
es. The officers. immediately
called for assistance and
searched the SUV, discovering
24 bails of marijuana. Upon fur-

New chief executive

officer at Butler Group

GRAND Bahama - Robert “Robbie” Butler,
younger brother of Jeffrey B Butler Sr, has joined
the Butler Group of Companies as its chief executive
officer. Robbie Butler joins his older sibling, who
serves as chairman, to run the Butler Group of
Companies, which comprises Butler’s Specialty
Foods and the Irish Pub Limited, dba Shenanigan’s
Irish Pub and the Harbour Room Restaurant. Both
of these restaurants are located in Port Lucaya.

Butler’s Specialty Foods has been in business on
Grand Bahama for 25 years.

It is a distributor, wholesaler and full-line grocer
serving Freeport’s finest restaurants and hotels, and
carries the largest selection of quality international
health and gourmet foods on the island.

In his new capacity, Robbie Butler will bring to
the table over 25 years experience in sales within the
food and liquor business, carrying on the tradition of
his grandfather Henderson Butler, the founder of
Butler and Sands liquor stores.

These experiences will guide him in the expansion
of Butler’s Specialty throughout the island of Grand
Bahama and the Family Islands.

When asked how he felt about joining the family
business, he said: “I look forward to working with my
brother for the further expansion of Butler’s and to
create an even higher standard for the people of
Grand Bahama.

“Over the next several months it is our intention

to increase our product line while doing our best to.

maintain our high level of quality service. We will do
our best to maintain the lowest possible prices on
Grand Bahama despite the increase in US prod-
ucts and shipping costs. Considering today’s econo-
my, it will be a challenge, but one that I am willing
to take on.”

Jeffrey Butler had this to say about his brother
joining the company: “It is a honour to have my
brother step in and take over the duties of the com-
pany that were previously held by myself.

Mr Butler said he is venturing into other areas of
the corporate sector, but was not able to elaborate in
detail at this time.

“My future endeavors will encompass working

Royal Oasis Resott |
is still dormant
almost two years
after purchase

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

FREEPORT - IT has been
almost two years since the $30-
million purchase of the Royal
Oasis Resort in Freeport, and
the new owners still remain very
vague about the timeline for
renovating and reopening the
resort property.

The resort, which once pro-
vided employment for over
1,000 Bahamians, lays dormant
and deteriorating, near one of
Freeport’s premier tourist
attractions — the International
Bazaar.

Harcourt Development, an
Irish-based development com-
pany, purchased the property in
November 2007.

At the time, the company
announced that it would make a
significant capital investment to
improve the hotel and its facili-
ties to create a high quality
tourist destination.

The Tribune attempted to
reach executives at Harcourt
Development in Freeport on
Tuesday for an update on the
start of renovations and the
reopening of the Royal Oasis,
however, no one returned our
calls up to press time.

Royal Oasis was the major
lifeblood of Freeport’s econo-
my. When the resort closed in
2004 following extensive hurri-
cane damage, the island lost
one-third of its room invento-
ry.

This has affected tourist
arrivals to the island. And the
once bustling International
Bazaar, with its maze of about
80 shops, is dead. Only a small
number of merchants and straw
vendors have managed to keep
their businesses open.

The straw market at Goom-
bay Park, which is situated at
the back of the resort, is-non-
existent.

Harcourt Development con-
siders itself to be one of Ire-
land’s most successful privately
owned property development
companies.

According to the company, it

REQUIRED

is reportedly involved in a wide-
range of projects across the
globe from Latvia to Las Vegas.

Their projects include a busi-
ness park in Latvia, an interna-

tional financial services centre.

in the Channel Islands, the
largest chain of shopping cen-
tres in Ireland, the Titanic Quar-
ter waterfront development in
Belfast, Northern Ireland, and
an entire residential village in
Las Vegas, among others.
Grand Bahama residents are
curious as to what is taking the
developers so long to begin the
much anticipated reconstruction
of the Royal Oasis in Freeport.
Harcourt’s acquisition of Roy-

al Oasis brings its total invest-
ment in Freeport up to approx-
imately $400 million.

According to a previous com-
pany release, when reopened,
the resort will bring “major ben-
efits to the local area through
increased tourism and employ-
ment.”

Harcourt’s plans include ren-
ovating the resort, creating a
new hotel, casino, convention

and meeting facilities, spa, fit-,

ness centre, food and beverage,
retail, recreation and a host of
other amenities. .
They also plan to restore the
golf courses to their former glo-

ry.

Commonwealth Bank to
begin construction of
Prince Charles branch

THE Commonwealth Bank announced this week that it has
signed a contract for the construction of a new 9,000-square foot,
$3-million branch on Prince Charles Drive.

The signature style stand-alone structure will mirror the huge-
ly successful Golden Gates branch, which opened in 2007, and ear-
lier this year won the 2008 Commonwealth Bank Chairman’s



- Award for Excellence, large branch. Designed and built by archi-

tects Ken Lam and Associates and successful bidders Osprey
Developers, the branch is expected to take 45 weeks to construct
and is tentatively scheduled for a September 2009 grand opening.

Commonwealth Bank expects the Prince Charles branch, locat-
ed just west of the College Garden subdivision, to service the
neighboring Prince Charles, Fox Hill, Yamacraw and Elizabeth
Estates residential areas, as well as the business communities
that surround them.

“We at Commonwealth Bank are committed to taking banking
to the people and we are especially excited about this new branch
in the south-eastern area of New Providence, a geographic area
that has experienced tremendous growth in the past decade.and
is now vastly under-banked,” said Chairman T B Donaldson,
CBE.

“Our experience in the past, and particularly at Golden Gates,
has demonstrated that taking banking into the communities where
people live and work builds loyalty for the bank.

“As the bank grows, it helps the communities it serves grow,
enabling more people to own homes, pay for their children’s col-
lege education, cover medical expenses. Every new branch is a new
shot in the arm for the surrounding community’s economy,” he
said.

When the new branch opens, it will employ up to 40 addition-
al staff and offer full banking services, including walk-up and dri-
ve-through automated banking machines.

Once completed, Commonwealth Bank will have 11 branch
locations serving the Bahamas throughout New Providence,
Grand Bahama and Abaco.

Commonwealth Bank is the nation’s largest publicly-held firm’

- with approximately 6,500 shareholders and more than $1.25 billion

in assets.

The tragedy of a




broken covenant

â„¢ By BISHOP
SIMEON B HALL

THE current social, politi-
cal and religious downturn
being experienced on a nation-
al level is a result of a broken
covenant which the Bahamian
people have committed
between themselves and their
God...

While our founding fathers
were “imperfect” they placed
on paper a perfect vision of
the Bahamas that, had we been
faithful to the original vision;
we could be further on as a
people.

There are some four Christ-
ian references in the preamble
of the Constitution that clear-
ly establishes a covenant with
God — and this covenant was to
have been the matrix of a soci-
ety in which an abiding respect
for Christian values would
have guided our national life.

The glaring and almost con-
temptuous ways in which we

as a nation have broken the:

covenant and strayed as a peo-
ple, is at the core of our
national decay.

The covenant, established in
the 1970’s was born out of a
national rubric to fix the egre-
gious ills of our colonist past.

‘What we need going forward
is a new spirit of nationalism. It
is the kind which appreciates



from people who are
making news in their
neighbourhoods. Perhaps

for improvements in the

} area or have won an
award.

The new patriotic-national-

vice to a cause greater than.

self-interest. It seeks to recov-

‘er the spirit of those founding

fathers, who sought, in all their
human frailty, to establish a
national covenant designed to
cause all Bahamians to
embrace each other regardless

of race, color, religion or eco-

nomic status.

On the occasion of our 35th:

Anniversary, to these noble
ideals, we must recommit our-
selves.

Sir Durward’s book
on sale for charity

SIR Durward Knowles will
sign copies of his book “Dri-
ven By The Stars” on Thurs-
day, July 24, from 3pm to 6pm
at the Logos Bookstore in the

Harbour Bay Shopping Cen-.

tre.
The book, written by Dou-
glas Hanks Jr and first

_released in 1992, chronicles

the eventful life of Sir Dur-
ward, who became a notable
captain and yachtsman.

“Driven By The Stars”, in
addition to documenting the
life of Sir Durward, provides
much history of the Bahamas
from the 1920s. The 1,000
recently printed copies are
being sold to aid the Bahamas
Association for the Physically
Disabled and the One
Bahamas Foundation.

Sir Durward was the Star
World Champion in 1947 and
had an Olympic career that
spanned 40 years from 1948
through 1988; representing

_ England in his 1948 Olympic



Sir Durward Knowles
debut.

‘He won his first Olympic
medal, a bronze, in 1956 at the
Melbourne Olympics and in
1964 at the Tokyo Games he

won the Bahamas’ first ever
Olympic Gold medal sailing

with Cecil Cooke as his crew.

Following his seventh
Olympic appearance in 1972,
everyone thought his Olympic
career was over, but he
returned in 1980 at the age of
70. It was his seventh time rep-
resenting the Bahamas and his
eighth and final Olympic
appearance in the Star. In the
history of the Olympic games,
Sir Durward was the third old-
est competitor.

Sit Durward’s love for sail-

_ ing has been eclipsed only by

his charitable involvement,
and at age 90 he is still active-
ly involved in several benevo-
lent endeavours.

He is Honorary vice-presi-
dent of the Charity Guide No

ciation; president of the

Budget ‘revenue
neutral or loser’

@ By NEIL HARTNELL
Business Editor

. THE 2008-2009 Budget is
“likely to be a revenue neutral
position or a loss of revenue”
to the Government, Prime Min-
ister Hubert Ingraham telling
Tribune Business that the tariff
‘rounding’ exercise would only
generate an extra $5 million that
would be easily offset by the tax
breaks granted.

Responding to the business
community’s concerns that the
tariff rationalisation and round-
ing exercise had resulted in tax
increases for many imported
items, Mr Ingraham and his
team at the Ministry of Finance
said some rates had to be
increased to compensate for the
tax reduction measures
announced in the Budget.

They said the Government,
while seeking to give ordinary
Bahamians relief from the
increased cost of living, induced
by soaring energy, food and
gasoline costs, had to be “fis-
cally responsible”.

The Prime Minister acknowl-

recent annual losses had impact-

Minister highlights potential $11m in energy cost savings

m By CARA BRENNEN-
BETHEL
Business Reporter

THE Bahamas could reduce
its fuel import bill by $11 mil-
lion per annum simply by con-
verting to energy-efficient light
bulbs and solar water heaters, a
government minister said yes-

terday.

Speaking at a two-day semi-
nar on Caribbean Regional Sus-
tainable Energy, Dr Earl
Deveaux, minister of the envi-
ronment, said it was estimated
that the Bahamas’ total demand
for electricity was expected to
increase at the rate of 8 per cent
per annum.

Dr Deveaux said simple
changes can have a huge impact
on energy conservation. He
added that replacing four 60-
watt incandescent bulbs with
four 13-watt CFLs in 80,000
households would reduce annu-
al fuel consumption by almost
44,000 barrels, which would yield
an average annual savings of $2

million.

Based on the assumption that
a standard electric water heater
runs an average of two hours per
day, Dr Deveaux said that
replacing 80,000 water heaters
with solar water heaters would
result in a reduction in annual
fuel consumption by 175,000 bar-
rels, yielding an annual savings
of about $9 million.

“These examples highlight the
need for‘national utilities to be
engaged in strengthening the
link between technology and the
consumer,” he added.

Dr Deveaux told conference
delegates that the global ener-
gy challenge is particularly criti-
cal in a fuel-dependent
archipleagic nation like the
Bahamas, which relies entirely
on marine and air transporta-
tion to connect and move goods
and food staples.

“As consumers, our nation
depends on imported petroleum
products to satisfy over 99 per
cent of our consumer energy
demand. It is expected that the

'. demand for electricity through-

out the Bahamas will continue to
grow at a rate of 8 per cent
annually,” Dr Deveaux said.

He added that despite heavy
reliance on fossil fuels, the
Bahamas lacks any known
exploitable supply of conven-
tional energy resources. He said
this severe imbalance between
supply and demand puts the
country in an extremely vulner-
able state.

Effectively, the Caribbean

region and the
Bahamas rep- |}
resent a blank |

renewable
energy oppor-
tunities, partic-
ularly as fuel
prices spiral to
unpfrecedent-
ed heights,
along with the

Earl Deveaux

need to increase environmental.

conservation.

Dr Deveaux said BEC, like
utilities throughout the region,
was a monopoly with a culture
dependent on fossil fuels. “That
culture must also be challenged
to change,” he said.

However, he pointed out that

- to ensure over -strectched utili-

ties are not forced to bear the
burden of huge capital invest-
ment, the preferred option

should be to purchase power -

agreements, whereby companies
make infrastructure investments
to produce energy, and regional

utilities like BEC purchase pow-

er for distribution.
These changes, he said, would

, have to be achieved with. leg-

islative amendments

US Ambassador to the
Bahamas, Ned Siegel, added:
“Now is the time for action on
developing renewable and sus-
tainable energy. Caribbean
economies are especially vul-
nerable to external shocks of this
kind, making planning and eco-
nomic development all the more
difficult.”



He said larger economies in
the Western Hemisphere were

_ by no means immune from the

dislocating effects of high energy
prices.

“Tt is critical that all of us iden-
tify ways to improve energy effi-
ciency and security,” Mr Siegel
said.

He pointed out that the
Caribbean can reduce its oil
dependency by taking advantage
of the wind and solar power it
has in such abundance.

Mr Siegal reiterated his coun-
try’s pledge to assist the
Caribbean in achieving sustain-
able, secure and affordable
access to energy for all citizens.

The conference is being
attended by energy officials and
energy producers from across
the Caribbean, representatives

petitor airport in the region” in terms of costs to
airlines,” Mr Ingraham told Tribune Business.

He added that the knee-jerk reaction from
some commercial and charter airlines to the 20
per cent fee increase, which was exclusively
revealed by Tribune Business, was not to that in
and of itself, but fears about “what is likely to
come thereafter”.

“It’s important to keep airlines happy and keep
costs down,” the Prime Minister said, explaining
that the Customs and Immigration Departments
were developing a shift system so that airline car-
riers would not have to collectively spend $4 mil-
lion per year on paying overtime fees to officers
in these departments.

“The intention is for the airport to be totally

‘autonomous and self-funding, so that govern-

ment will not have to put any money into the
airport’s redevelopment,” Mr Ingraham added.

“The user fees will be able to take care of all
expenditure and redevelopment costs. It’s [the

Telecommunications Company
(BEC) might enjoy post-pri-
vatisation, Prime Minister
Hubert Ingraham told Tribune
Business.

He added that the commit-
tee appointed by the Govern-
ment to advise it on BTC’s pri-
vatisation believed it had “no
binding legal obligation” to sell

the state-owned cellular monop-:

oly to Bluewater Communica-
tions Holdings, the group that
agreed a deal in principle with
the former Christie administra-
tion just before it demitted
office.

The Prime Minister told Tri-
bune Business that the privati-
sation committee, headed by
Commonwealth Bank chair-
man, T. B. Donaldson, and

BTC chairman Julian Francis, °

were “satisfied” that the previ-
ous government had not locked
them into doing a deal with
Bluewater. .

“They may be their choice,
but there is no binding legal
obligation to sell to Bluewater,
“ Mr Ingraham told Tribune
Business:

Bluewater Communications
Holdings is thought to have
‘ about 14 working days left on its
exclusivity period over talks to
purchase BTC. Yet Mr Ingra-
ham’s comments again indicate

that the current government,
and its privatisation and advi-
sory committees, would like to
open up the process to rival bid-
ders and conduct more of a

‘beauty contest’, in an effort to
maximise BTC’s purchase price.

Bluewater Communications
Holdings had offered ta pay
$225 million up front for a 49
per cent stake in BTC, with a
further $30 million payable after
five years - likely when the cel-
lular exclusivity period it was
seeking expired.

Given that cellular already
accounts for two-thirds of
BTC’s revenues and the bulk
of its profits, Bluewater could
effectively pay for the acquisi-
tion within five years through
its monopoly. A final $5 million
would have been paid in year
Six.

’ The Ingraham administration
has indicated it is open to selling
a majority stake in BTC to the
successful bidder, and not retain
a majority holding.

On the exclusivity period any
purchaser would enjoy, Mr
Donaldson told Tribune Busi-
ness earlier this week that three
years was likely to be the max-
imum.

Mr Ingraham said he thought _

when it came to any exclusivity
period. He added: “We'd like
to maximise the purchase price
of BTC, but at the same time
we'd like to liberalise the
telecommunications sector of
the Bahamas as rapidly as pos-
sible.

“We'd like to strike the
appropriate balance. That’s a
bit long for a monopoly to exist,
especially in the cellular area.
Three years would be an out-
side, upper limit.”

The Prime Minister again
expressed regret that BTC had
not been privatised during his
first term in office. The prob-
lem, he added, was that when
BTC’s accounts were being
audited, its assets “could not be
verified”.

“We did not wish to put on

the market a’public sector enti-
ty without having a clean bill of
health from the audit,” Mr
Ingraham said.

“In retrospect, we should
have sold notwithstanding.”

The Prime Minister said that
if BTC had been placed on the
market without a clean audit,
not only might the Government
and Bahamas’ credibility suf-
fered in international financial
circles, but a lower price would

The Prime Minister made a
distinction between the GBPA,
which holds the regulatory,
licensing and quasi-govern-
mental powers for Freeport,
and its Port Group Ltd affili-
ate, which holds interests in the
city’s main productive assets.

Mr Ingraham hinted that the
Government would prefer a
solution where more than one
investor group acquired Port
Group Ltd, which is 50/50 joint
venture partners with Hutchi-
son Whampoa in Freeport’s
main infrastructure and real
estate holding companies.

The 50/50 partners own the
Grand Bahama Development
Company (Devco), Freeport
Harbour Company and the
Grand Bahama Airport Com-

any. ;

“It would be better if the
ownership of the assets was dis-
persed to more than one party,
and that we never have a situa-
tion where they’re owned by
two investors again,” Mr Ingra-
ham said.

“Tf you have two major
groups that end up with the oth-
er 50 per cent, that would be in
Freeport’s best interests.” »

His comments also seemed

would not be averse to splitting
the GBPA, representing

Freeport’s regulatory side, away ~

from the asset ownership on the
Port Group Ltd side.

The Prime Minister’s com-
ments are likely to come as a
blow to Mr Fleming who, along
with Geoffrey Richards, both
resigned earlier this year from
their posts as deputy chairman
and chairman, respectively, of
the former’s family private equi-
ty firm, Fleming Family & Part-
ners, to pursue their GBPA
interest. The company itself is
not directly involved in the
attempt to acquire the GBPA
and Port Group Ltd.

Tribune Business under-
stands that Mr Fleming’s busi-
ness plan for the GBPA and
Freeport, should he prove suc-
cessful, is based on him securing
100 per cent control of both
Port Group Ltd and the Port
Authority - the very thing the

Prime Minister said he will not .

allow.
Sources close to the Fleming
camp indicated that Mr Fleming

and his business partners were -

prepared to invest $1 billion of
their own equity in acquiring
the GBPA/Port Group Ltd and
financing an initial slate of
investments to get Freeport and
Grand Bahama’s economy
moving again.

They believe that this could
act as the catalyst to attract as
much as $25 billion in further
foreign direct investment into
Freeport between the time of
purchase and 2020.

Among the industries being
targeted by Fleming, Tribune

Business understands, is.the cre- ,

ation of Freeport’s own inter-
national financial centre, mod-
elled along the lines of those in
Dubai and Singapore, and
focused on international com-
merce and major capital mar-
kets transactions.
Other developments being

eyed by Fleming include a $1-$3:

billion oil refinery, sources have
told Tribune Business, plus a

new cruise ship harbour and ter-.

minal, new non-US interna-

tional terminal at Grand.

Bahama International Airport,
and a business management and
skills training academy.

Fleming’s agenda, should his
purchase be successful, is a $1

Government will ‘definitely not back’ Port sale to Fleming

billion liquefied natural gas
(LNG) terminal and a leading
entertainment centre.

Mr Fleming has been pursu-
ing a Supreme Court order lift- .
ing the stay on Sir Jack Hay- ~
ward’s family trust selling its
GBPA/Port"Group Ltd stake
(found to be SO per cent last
summer by Supreme Court Jus-
tice Anita Allen) to him.

Once that happens, the sale
would likely be completed swift-
ly, and Mr Fleming would use
that shareholding to pressure
the late Edward St George’s
estate into selling to him, too.

The St George estate, for its
part, is seeking court orders
putting the stake held in

~ Edward St George’s name into”

its own. Once this happened, it
would then seek to sell its

shares to Hutchison Whampoa.

Meanwhile, Prime Minister
Hubert Ingraham also con-

. firmed that new Port Group Ltd

chairman, Erik Christiansen,
had authorised the release of

between some $20-$25 million

from the company’s coffers.
Tribune Business had previ-
ously been told by informed
sources that some $14 million
had been released to pay down
Hutchison Whampoa’s loan to
the Grand Bahama Airport
Company, while another $8 mil-
lion had been allocated to cov-
er Port Group Ltd’s share of
work costs at the Freeport Har-

’ bour Company.

Port Group Ltd had previ-
ously been sitting on a $30 mil-
lion-plus cash pile, and the
release of such a substantial
amount is understood not to
have gone down well with the
late Edward St George’s estate,
which relies on dividends for its
income.

On the ownership dispute
with Sir Jack Hayward and his
family trust, Mr Ingraham said
both sides had repeatedly told
the Government and its agen-
cies that they were 50/50 part-
ners, and supplied “an abun-
dance” of evidence in the past

‘ to show this.

“We have had discussions
with all sides [the Haywards and
St Georges]. We are going to
have further discussions with at
least one.side next week. We
are nearer to the end'than we
were before,” the Prime Min-
ister said.

Stocks rise as oil prices decline

@ By TIM PARADIS
AP Business Writer

NEW YORK (AP) — Stocks
rose moderately Wednesday as
another decline in oil prices and
several upbeat profit reports
eased some of Wall Street’s
concerns about the economy.

Investors appeared unfazed
by the Federal Reserve's Beige
Book, which provides readings
on the US economy by region
and indicated that business con-
ditions have slowed in recent
months as consumer spending
has turned sluggish. The report
arrives two weeks before poli-
cymakers’ next meeting but
seemed to hold few surprises
for investors.

Regardless, Wall Street
believes the recent easing of oil
prices, if sustained, could give a
crucial boost to the economy.

Crude has retreated as Hurri-'

cane Dolly looked likely to
spare key oil installations in the
Gulf of Mexico and after the
government reported Wednes-
day that domestic inventories
increased last week as con-
sumers curbed their energy use.
But oil came off its lows — and
stocks pared their gains — after

‘the hurricane strengthened to

a Category 2 storm.

While oil again tugged at
stocks as it has for months,
investors also examined a raft of
earnings reports that indicated
not all corporate profits were
suffering because of the slower
economy. That left some
investors more upbeat about
the prospects for the overall
economy. AT&T Inc., McDon-

-ald’s Corp. and Pfizer Inc., all

among the 30 stocks that make
up the Dow Jones industrial
average, weighed in with
reports that generally pleased
investors.

“Oil is a positive but I think
bigger than that is the earnings
news is not as catastrophic as
people were thinking,” said
Noman Ali, portfolio manager
of US equities for MFC Global
Investment Management. in
Toronto. “Some of the bell-
wethers are reporting earnings
that are better-than-expected.
And outside of the financials
things, aren’t so bad.”

In midafternoon trading, the
Dow rose 52.92, or 0.46 per
cent, to 11,655.42 after rising
nearly 100 points in the early

going. On Tuesday, the blue
chips gained 135 points.

Broader stock indicators
advanced. The Standard &
Poor’s 500 index rose 8.70, or
0.68 per cent, to 1,285.70 and
the technology-laden Nasdaq
composite index rose 21.25, or
0.92 per cent, to 2,325.21.

Advancing issues outnum-
bered decliners by about three
to two on the New York Stock
Exchange, where volume came
to 1.09 billion shares.

Bond prices declined as
investors moved some money
into equities. The yield on the
benchmark 10-year Treasury
note, which moves opposite its
price, rose to 4.15 per cent from
4:10 per cent from late Tues-
day.

. The dollar was mostly higher
against other major currencies,
while gold prices fell.

A barrel of light, sweet crude
fell $2.74 to $125.68 on New
York Mercantile Exchange. Oil
is down more than $20 since hit-

‘ting a record above $147 just

weeks ago.

A drop in energy prices
would benefit a wide spectrum
of companies, including airlines,
manufacturers and even retail-
ers. It also helped distract
investors from some disap-
pointing earnings delivered this
week — especially from strug-
gling banks and brokerages. .

AT&T rose $1.51, or 4.8 per
cent, to $33.33 after the com-
pany said quarterly profits rose
amid a big spike in wireless sub-
scribers that offset its shrinking
landline business. The biggest
US phone company is the offi-
cial carrier of Apple Inc.’s
iPhone, arid that helped add 1.3
million wireless subscribers dur-
ing the period.

Pfizer, the world’s biggest
drug maker, said its second-
quarter earnings more than
doubled as restructuring charges
declined and the weak dollar

helped lift overseas revenue. It.
‘narrowly beat Wall Street

expectations. The stock rose 72
cents, or 3.9 per cent, to $19.07.

McDonald’s credited strong
overseas sales with driving the
company’s second-quarter prof-
it. The nation’s largest restau-
rant chain easily surpassed Wall
Street’s expectations. The stock
fell $1.24, or 2.1 per cent, to

‘$58.88.

Boeing Co. fell $2.56, or 3.7

per cent, to $66.70 after report-
ing that second-quarter earn-
ings fell 19 per cent because a
$248 million charge related toa
defense program. The world’s
second-largest commercial air-
plane maker had already

warned it would book the .

expense.

Washington Mutual Inc. fell
74 cents, or 13 per cent, to $5.08
after the nation’s largest thrift
reported a $3 billion loss due
to increases in its loss reserves
to cover souring loans in its
mortgage portfolio.

Costco Wholesale Corpora-
tion warned that its. fiscal
fourth-quarter and full-year
profits will fall short of Wall
Street’s expectations. The ware-
house club operator expects
higher energy costs to hurt its
results. The stock fell $7.73, or
1t per cent, to $64.26.

Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac
advanced as the House planned
to vote Wednesday on legisla-
tion that would tap the mort-
gage giants’ profits to cover any
losses from saving 400,000
homeowners from foreclosure.
The measure would give the
Treasury Department authority
to extend the companies a tem-
porary lifeline. Fannie Mae rose
$1.31, or 9.8 per cent, to $14.72,
while Freddie Mac rose $1.05,
or 11 per cent, to $10.75.

Ali said the government’s
action to help Fannie Mae and

‘Freddie Mac has reassured

investors that the financial sys-
tem is not in danger of collapse.

“Things are not blowing up
because of Fannie and Freddie
still being in business and the
financial system still being
intact,” he said. “I think you’re
seeing some relief on that.”

Still, he remains cautious.

“Some of the biggest rallies
happen in bear markets. The
outlook for the market is still
pretty negative,” he said, point-
ing to a general decline in earn-
ings, a slowdown in interna-
tional growth, rising prices and
a weak dollar.

The Russell 2000 index of
smaller companies rose 4.79, or
0.67 per cent, to 721.61.

Overseas, Japan’s Nikkei
stock average rose 0.97 per cent.
Britain’s FTSE 100 added 1.60
per cent, Germany’s DAX
index rose 1.45 per cent, and
France’s CAC-40 jumped 1.88

per cent.

adding: “They’re on their way

Budget

Yet for the 2008-2009 Bud-
get year, Bahamasair is set to
receive $28 million in govern-
ment funds, with the Water &
Sewerage Corporation set to
receive $19 million; the Broad-
casting Corporation $11 million;
and the Bahamas Development
Bank and the Bahamas Agri-
cultural and Industrial Corpo-
ration (BAIC), $2.5 million col-
lectively.

“There’s no question that’s
unaffordable on a continuing
basis. We’re taking steps to first-
ly contain it, but secondly to
begin to reduce. it, and in some
cases eliminate it,” Mr Ingra-

ham said of the high subsidies.

“Other things will happen to
reduce those numbers. Those
numbers are too high.”

The Prime Minister said the
Government had “capped”
Bahamasair’s subsidy at $28
million, meaning that if the air-
line required more funding, it
would have to generate the
funds itself.

The airline, he added, had not
been allowed to charge market
or economic passenger fees and
rates by the Government, even
though its fuel bill had “gone
sky high”.

“As a percentage, there is
more money available for pub-
lic services now than there was
10 years ago,” the Prime Minis-
ter said.

“The percentage being trans-
ferred to these losing entities is
still too high, even though in
net terms it’s going down.”

first-time homeowners could
escape as much as $66,500 in
taxes.

“The net effect is going to be
against the Government,” Mr
Ingraham said, explaining that
the impact from the tariff
‘rounding exercise’ would “only
net a difference of $5 million”.

Under the Excise Act and
Tariff Act reforms introduced
in the 2008-2009. Budget, cus-
toms duty and stamp duty rates
were amalgamated into one,
with the number of duty rates
rationalised. This resulted in
some amalgamated rates being
rounded up, for example from
42 per cent to 45 per cent, and
some down, from 17 per cent
to 15 per cent.

The Prime Minister said the
$5 million revenue gain esti-
mated to result from this exer-
cise would immediately .be
“whittled away” by the Bud-
get’s tax concessions, which
included $15 million in revenue
foregone on Bahamas Electric-
ity Corporation (BEC) oil
imports.

Mr Ingraham pointed out
that 10 years ago, in 1998, oil
imports accounted for 10 per
cent of the total value of all
goods imported into the

’ Bahamas. Now, oil-related

imports accounted for 31 per
cent of the total value of oil
imports, due to the global price
rise.

A further $1.3 million in tax-
es were given up via the con-
cessions granted to taxi drivers
on vehicle imports, and Mr
Ingraham added: “On balance,
we felt we had done a wonder-
ful thing for the Bahamas, and
that ordinary people benefit
most. Those that pay more will
be persons better off than ordi-
nary folk.”

The Prime Minister cud that
out of every $100 spent by
Bahamians, some $19-$20.went
to the Government in the form
of taxes. The regressive nature
of the Bahamian tax system was
felt most by “ordinary, poor”

pared to wealthier people.

The customs and stamp duty
concessions, along with the real
property tax breaks that were
intended to revitalise Bay
Street, would also result in a
loss of revenue for the Govern-
ment.

“We’ve got two applications
in for Bay Street already,” Mr
Ingraham said, “for customs
duty exemptions, which will be
approved between now and
next week. That will be mil-
lions.”

He added that traditionally,
labour accounted for between
50-60 per cent of construction
project costs, with materials
accounting for a further 40 per
cent. Customs duties were typ-
ically worth between 25-30 per
cent of construction project
costs.

Mr Ingraham acknowledged
that taxes paid by airline pas-
sengers on imported goods

brought back into the Bahamas:

via their luggage would increase
by “a much as 10 per cent”, as
Stamp Tax was never paid pre-
viously. Now it.will be included

in the amalgamated rates.

Mr Ingraham said the 2008-
2009 Budget was “a rationali-
sation exercise” and not “a
deliberate decision to increase
duty rates”, intended to elimi-
nate a variety of anomalies.

While intended to reduce the
opportunity for Customs offi-
cers to exercise their discretion
in determining what rate to levy
on a particular item, among the
discrepancies tackled were the
different rates levied on office
and home furniture, and male
and female under garments.

Despite the tax breaks,
Zhivargo Laing, minister of
state for finance, said the Gov-
ernment’s tax breaks could not
do everything when it came to
reducing living costs.

He pointed out that sweet
peppers, between May 20008
and now, had increased by 91
per cent on Grand Bahama and
43 per cent on New Providence.

Going against the grain

in an uncertain CCONOMY:

m@ By TIM PARADIS
AP Business Writer

NEW YORK (AP) — It’s
one of the rare occasions when
it’s OK to gawk at the flaws of
the very old. Designers and

architects are plucking wood .

from old barns and other struc-
tures to give new projects a dose
of character that can otherwise
be hard to come by.

While mixing old with new
isn’t, well; new, the demand for

the beauty of decades-old wood

is helping some people who col-
lect and sell the bones of old

buildings prosper in a difficult .
economy. Interest in the wood .

known as reclaimed lumber
appears to be growing in part
because the boards can fit’
tongue and groove with the
environmental goals of some
projects.

Many construction-related
businesses have had demand
fizzle as the housing market has
retreated, but David Sacia has

seen orders for reclaimed wood -

grow. The owner of Reclaimed

Lumber Co. in Baraboo, Wis., ,

mainly sells to wealthy home-
owners on the East and West
coasts and the designers and
architects they employ. He says
business is still growing, just at'a

slower pace than in recent

years. »

“It’s up five per cent this year.
Every year it’s usually up in the
double digits,” he said. And giv-

- en what’s gone on elsewhere in -

the market with stalled projects
in both the residential and com-
mercial construction markets,
any growth is worth noting.

- But this isn’t a business like a
discount grocery chain or a

- pawn shop that benefits from

tough times. Shoppers for

reclaimed lumber generally pay .

more for their history-stained
wood than for the new stuff.

“To buy the material is as .

much as new lumber and usual-
ly two, three or four times. the
cost,” Sacia said.

_ With the higher price Gs and
ever-shifting tastes, Sacia once
worried that demand for the
wood, which is mainly used in

ORIENTAL AREA RUGS

flooring or in decorative
accents, would prove a fad. But
he’s been comforted as notions
about what can be recycled
have spread beyond soda cans
and newspapers.

“The word ‘green’ has come
into play,” he said, predicting

the environmental bona fides

of old boards could help sus-
tain demand.

Anita Lang, principal at
design firm Interior Motives, in
Scottsdale, Ariz., said clients

are increasingly drawn to the

idea of outfitting a home or

“business with something than

can be reused:

And then there is the wood’s
resume: Its nicks and dents give
it beauty, fans say. And the
wood can be sanded and treated
to preserve or minimize marks
from a former life.

“It just to continues to get

more beautiful as you live with

it,” Lang said.“The other thing .
with a reclaimed floor is it’s nev-

er dated.”
She encourages clients to pay
for the reclaimed wood and
skimp on the more superficial
items when they’re building,
renovating or redecorating.
“You can always come back
and upgrade your sofa down
the road,” she said. “There is
so much character that if a fam-
ily would live on that they
would just be adding to that
patina.” 2
Still, some clients have lately
balked at paying more than $20
a square foot, when, for exam-
ple, they can get a fabricated
floor made to look old for about
$17 per square foot. But the dif-

ference between reclaimed ©

wood and wood made to look
old can be stark, she contends.

“You cannot totally replicate
what 100 years does to some-
thing with factory equipment.”

John Williams, a senior
account representative at
Mountain Lumber Co. in Ruck-
ersville, Va., said he’s seen some
slowdown but that the pedigree
of the wood the company ‘sells
— it’s been installed every-
where from Mount Vernon to
Monticello — is still drawing

business.

“One of our barometers
we’re seeing here is how many -

‘requests we’re getting for sam-
ples. And that’s actually gone
up,” Williams said. :

Tricia Thompson and her
husband, Todd, own Enmar.
Hardwood Flooring Inc. in
Mesa, Ariz. She said the gulf
between those worried about

- their finances and those who

appear undaunted has widened.
And demand for the more
expensive reclaimed wood con-
tinues.

“Your very high- -end custom
homes are still going out here,”
she said.

Big retail home decor stores,

for example, will use reclaimed
wood to add a sense of charac-
ter to their stores and to add to
their green credentials.

But people looking to make a
buck from reclaimed wood
shouldn’t necessarily go ripping
down an old barn or homme.
While standards vary, the wood
has to be in good condition and
buyers can be choosy.

Typically, the best deposits
of lumber ripe for reuse are in
the Eastern US and parts of the
Midwest where barns and
homes were often built using
large, old timbers rather than

‘with more blue chip — and less
aesthetically pleasing — wood
as the country pushed West.

Marc Cree, national sales and

marketing manager at Vintage ©

Lumber Company in Frederick
County, Maryland, ‘sees

increased: demand for people.

hoping to profit from. their old
buildings.
“There? s definitely a larger
scale of people calling in. They
‘want money. I think they’ve
seen the rise in the reclaimed
market and they’ve seen the
prices that certain companies
get for the reclaimed market
_and they expect to make a con-
siderable profit,” Cree said.
But some prices have come
down in recent years as more
supply has hit the market, ‘a
benefit to those collecting ‘the
wood. Many barns can be had
. for SL 000, pe 000.

The $320 million resort,
which acts as Exuma’s ‘anchor
property’, has been in receiver-
ship for more than one year
after its holding company,
Emerald Bay Resort Holdings
(EBRH), defaulted on its loan
repayments in April 2007.

The resort has acted as Exu-
ma’s main economic engine,
attracting additional foreign
direct investment to the island.
It employs almost 500 staff, and
features an 18-hole Greg Nor-
man Golf Course, two restau-
rants, three pools, spa, six meet-
ing rooms and 450-person
capacity ballroom.

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.

Development’s proposed Cat
Island project was due to start
“any day now”.

Other developments seen as
benefiting the Family Islands
were Port St George in Long
Island and a proposed project
for south Eleuthera.

“What we hope not to have is
what happened in Exuma,
where you had too many jobs
for the island to sustain. It did-
n’t have the infrastructure,” Mr
Ingraham said.

Meanwhile, the Florida trio
of investors behind the stalled
$250 million Chub Cay project -
Kaye Pearson, Walt McCrory
and Bob Moss - had contacted
the Prime Minister on Monday
to inform him they thought they —
had found a buyer who would
become the main equity
investor. They, in turn, would
take more of a minor role.

“They think they’ve got a
deal, and will be able to pay-
off local creditors and the Gov-
ernment and start-up again,”
Mr Ingraham said of Chub Cay.

“They think they’ve found a
buyer. The entity they’ve found
has involvement in a number of
places in and outside the region.
They are people well known.”

The Prime Minister, though,
expressed scepticism about the
$1.8 billion Mayaguana project,
which was entered into by the
former Christie administration
as a 50/50 joint venture between

. the Government and the

Boston-based I-Group.

“With respect to Mayaguana,
I’ve always had my views on
Mayaguana. I don ‘t see any-
thing happening to convince me
this will be a very successful
development,” he said.

“The Government is a part-
ner in that. development
through the Hotel Corporation,
we have members on the
Board,. and not much is hap-
pening there now.”

Royal Caribbean Cruises’ shares surge

@ By KRISTEN A LEE
AP Business Writer

NEW YORK (AP) — Royal
Caribbean Cruises’ shares
surged Tuesday after the cruise
operator appeased investors
with its announcement that it is
slashing jobs and taking other
steps to reduce annual expenses
by $125 million.

Royal Caribbean Cruises
Limited shares jumped $3.40,
or 14.9 per cent, to $26.28 in
afternoon trading. They had lost
six per cent Monday as
investors anticipated the Mia-
mi-based company’s second-
quarter earnings report.

In a conference call with
investors on Tuesday, Chair-
man and CEO Richard Fain
said the current situation,
including soaring fuel prices and
the economic downturn, “is
unlike anything we’ve experi-
enced in our industry’s histo-

ry. ”
The company said late Mon-

day that it will cut 400 land-
based jobs and reduce some

“Our goal of $125 million is a
stretch, but we are determined
to achieve it and to make it

Caribbean’s cost cutting plan.
It reported that second-quar-

The jobs to be cut range from

nating an educational pro-

called “The Scholar Ship.”

It expects to incur about $15
million, or seven cents a share,
in third-quarter charges relat-
ed to the restructuring.

Fain said, however, that
cruise demand and bookings are
holding up. He attributed low-
er-than-expected second-quar-
ter yields to a disappointing per-

Spanish brand, Pullmantur.

grounding incident and a weak
Spanish economy.

“The good news is that the

and at that time the market was
pretty uniformly seen as being

“We believe management’s

charges, Royal Caribbean

Pack your bags for Baghdad?
Iraq starts to promote tourism

>

@ By CHRISTOPHER TORCHIA
Associated Press Writer
BAGHDAD

Someone had fun tinkering with the airline board at the old, disused
terminal at Baghdad International Airport, reports The Associated
Press. It advertises a “special flight” on Japan Airlines from Basra to
Sydney, Australia, while a flight from Baghdad to Mexico City is
“delayed.”

In reality, Iraq has been a no-go zone for most civilian aircraft for
almost two decades. First, there were U.N. sanctions after Saddam Hus-
sein’s invasion of Kuwait in 1990. Then U.S.-led forces toppled the dic-
tator in 2003, and violence engulfed the country.

Yet, now that insurgent attacks and sectarian bloodshed have ebbed
over the past year, Iraq’s government is beginning to promote tourism.
It will be a tough sell — and even if officials can grab the attention of
the adventuresome, Iraq’s tourism facilities are shabby.

The opening of a new airport Sunday in the southern city of Najaf is
expected to help boost the number of religious pilgrims, mostly Irani-
ans, visiting Shiite shrines to 1 million this year, double the number that
came in 2007.

Pilgrims are admittedly a special
kind of visitor. “They do not consid-
er any kind of danger or harassment.
They have a religious ideology that
considers any difficulty they face as a
merit and mercy for their piety,” said
Abdul Zahra al-Talaqani, spokesman
for Iraq’s tourism ministry.

Iraq is thinking about more than
pilgrims, though. Last week, officials
displayed tourism posters and said
they are intent on attracting visitors
to Iraq’s fabled archaeological sites,
many of them looted and damaged in
fighting. But they offered few IN THIS JULY 19, 2008 file pho- ; e
specifics about how they would do to, Robert Kelley, left, head of ae at
that. And the venue of the forum? Symmit Global Group, a U.S.- x my

“Safety is still the biggest con- the heavily fortified Green Zone in
cern,” Lt. Cmdr. Christopher Baghdad.

Grover, a Navy officer working with

Iraq’s tourism board on behalf of the U.S. government, wrote in an e-
mail. “It will take a few risk-takers to invest in Iraq, but when that hap-
pens others should follow.” :

One risk-taker is Robert Kelley, an American businéssman who
stood at the edge of a field in Baghdad’s Green Zone on Saturday and
said a luxury, $100 million hotel would be built there. The zone hous-
es Iraqi government offices and American diplomatic and military
facilities. Officials from Iraq’s National Investment Commission joined
Kelley in the shade of a tent, where they slathered wet concrete onto
bricks in a “cornerstone-laying” ceremony. Some Iraqi observers
joked that the structure looked like a gravestone.

“We think the Iraqi people want to get along with each other,”
said Kelley, head of Summit Global Group, a U.S.-based investment
company. He did not identify the-investors, but said-construction
could begin soon after city officials do a survey in 30 to 45 days. &

Despite his expréssion of confidence, many hotels in the capital
are virtually empty, and the National Museum, full of relics from
thousands of years of history, remains closed to the public.

“We’re worried about reopening the museum, in case a suicide
bomber with an explosive vest infiltrates,” a government expert on
archaeology said, insisting on arionymity because he is not authorized
to speak to the media. “We should wait until the spread of peace and
security in the country.” :

Hundréds of hotels in the holy cities of Najaf and Karbala are usu-
ally packed, but tourism officials say the buildings badly need upgrad-
ing. War has reduced places like Babylon, where the Hanging Gardens
were located, to decrepit, virtually inaccessible outposts of ancient
culture. The northern city of Mosul is near the remnants of Ninevah and
Nimrud, cities of the Assyrian empire. But Mosul is one of the more
violent places in Iraq these days. Ur, capital of the Sumerian civiliza-
tion ‘and the Biblical home of the prophet Abraham, lies in the south,
where Shiite militias have been active. “Its turbulent and extreme
domestic situation makes Iraq one of the least desirable places in the
world to be,” reads the online edition of the Lonely Planet travel
guide. Many countries warn their citizens against going to Iraq. ©

Years ago, the few foreign tourists who came during Saddam’s bru-
tal rule generally felt safe in the streets. Saddam’s image was every-
where. So were informers, and Iraqis did not speak freely to visitors.

Baghdad is much calmer than it was just a year ago, but anybody,
Iraqi or foreigner, who goes into the streets recognizes the potential for
danger. The loud boom of a roadside bomb targeting an Iraqi police
patrol was audible along the Tigris river Sunday morning. One civilian
was killed.An Iraqi resident, who didn’t want to be quoted by name
because of concerns for his safety, said he had personally witnessed
attacks on military or government convoys in 2004, in 2007 and then last
week. In each case, he did a U-turn along with other frantic drivers and
sped away from the fray; collisions were common in the traffic mayhem.

Besides the threat to safety, tourists would face other problems,
including a lack of infrastructure such as the rundown hotels and
overstretched medical facilities. Iraq, in short, is not a place for most
tourists. ;

is based in Detroit. “The cus-
tomer is tied to the screen with
an eight-foot rubber hose for
five minutes.”

It also appears that people
remember what they see on the
pump TVs: according to a Gas
Station TV and Nielsen Media
Research study, 70 percent of
the people who watched the ads
remembered the products
advertised, and 89 percent of
consumers surveyed were will-
ing to buy a product after seeing
an ad atop the pump.

“You can push people into
the store,” says John McLean,

CEO of Fuelcast, which is based

in Santa Monica, California.
Which is good news for retail-
ers, who often have trouble lur-
ing customers inside.
“One of the pitfalls for con-

venience store owners these

days is that people pay at the
pump,” said Richard Divine,

-head of the marketing depart-

ment at Central Michigan Uni-

: versity. “People don’t want to

go inside the store anymore.
But at the gas pump, you’ve got
a captive audience.”
On a recent workday at a
Shell station in Miami, the Fuel-

cast screen..above the pump
aired 15-second ads for fuel-effi-

cient Chevy cars, Norwegian
Cruise Lines, and, of course,
Shell gasoline. Anna DaSilva,
a 59-year-old retiree from
Doral, Fla., said she had never
seen the screens at gas stations
until this month; when she
fueled up at a Shell station near
her home. DaSilva said she
liked the idea not because of
the ads but because it distracted
her from the high gas prices.

“T think that’s the whole pur-
pose of the TVs,” she said.

Orlando Garcia, a Miami
engineer, didn’t even look at
the TV screen as it broadcast a
Norwegian Cruise Lines ad at
the Shell station on a recent
workday. He was too busy
pumping $75 into the tank of
his Range Rover.

“Tt doesn’t bother me, but I’m
not really paying much atten-
tion to it,” shrugged the 37-year-
old Garcia, a Miami engineer.
“$4.15 gas, now that bothers
me.”

Women on antidepressants may benefit from Viagra

Viagra’s effect in women has been disap-

arousal.”

The research involving 98 premenopausal
women found Viagra helped with orgasm.

But the benefits did not extend to other
aspects of sex such as desire, researchers report
in Wednesday’s Journal of the American Med-

“For women on antidepressants with orgasm
problems, this may provide some wonderful
relief,” said psychologist Stanley Althof, direc-
tor of the Center for Marital and Sexual Health
of South Florida in West Palm Beach, who was

Antidepressants can interfere with sex drive

and performance even as the drugs help lift erip-
pling depression. Switching drugs or reducing the

dose can help. But many people, men and
women, stop taking them because of their sexual
side effects.

The complaints are common. More than half
the people who take antidepressants develop
sexual problems, prior studies have found, espe-
cially for people taking Prozac, Paxil, Celexa
and other drugs that work by increasing the
chemical serotonin in the brain.

Serotonin is thought to slow down orgasm,
perhaps by diminishing the release of another
brain chemical, dopamine. Viagra increases
blood flow to sex organs.

Pfizer Inc. spokeswoman Sally Beatty said
the company currently has no plans to pursue
FDA approval for using its drug Viagra as a
treatment for female sexual dysfunction. The
company ended its internal research on Viagra
for women in 2004.

While Viagra was found to be safe, the results
were inconclusive, Beatty said in an e-mail.

The search for a Viagra equivalent for women
has been disheartening.

Rising prices at the gas pump
appear to be having at least one
positive effect: Traffic deaths
around the country are plum-
meting, just as they did during
the Arab oil embargo three
decades ago, according to the
Associated Press.

Researchers with the National
Safety Council report a 9 percent
drop in motor vehicle deaths
overall through May compared
with the first five months of 2007,
including a drop of 18 percent in
March and 14 percent in April.

Preliminary figures obtained
by The Associated Press show
that some states have reported
declines of 20 percent or more.
Thirty-one states have seen
declines of at least 10 percent,
and eight states have reported an
increase, according to the council.

No one can say definitively why
road fatalities are falling, but it
is happening as Americans cut

_ back sharply on driving because
of record-high gas prices.

Fewer people on the road
means fewer fatalities, said Gus
Williams, 52,-of Albany, Ga., who
frequently drives to northern
Ohio. “That shows a good thing
coming out of this crisis.” He has
also noticed that many motorists
are going slower.

The federal government
reported in April that miles trav-
eled fell 1.8 percent in April com-
pared with a year earlier, contin-
uing a trend that began in
November.

Experts say a slumping econo-
my and fuel prices have brought
down the number of road fatali-
ties in a hurry.

“When the economy is in the

typically see a decline in miles
driven and traffic deaths,” said
John Ulezycki, the council’s exec-
utive director for transportation
safety.

also were reported more often by thé women
taking Viagra. Psychologist Leonore Tiefer of
New York University School of Medicine said
industry-funded research has oversimplified
women’s sexual experience. S

The new Viagra findings are based on an

eight-week experiment.

he noted the new study, funded by a Pfizer
grant, found more side effects than benefits.

The 98 women were using antidepressants
successfully but were having sexual problems.
Their average age was 37.

The women agreed to attempt sexual activity
at least once each week.

Each time, they took a pill, not knowing
whether it was Viagra or a matching dummy
pill.

While 72 percent of the women taking Viagra
reported improvement on an overall scale, only
27 percent of the women taking the placebo
reported improvement.

Althof said it’s “worrisome” that 43 percent of
the women on Viagra experienced headaches,
compared to 27 percent of the women on dum-

“Where’s the question to the women: Is it
worth it?” Tiefer said.

An earlier study in men taking antidepres-
sants found more pronounced sexual benefits
with Viagra than the benefits found for women,
said lead author Dr. George Nurnberg, a psy-
chiatrist at the University of New Mexico School
of Medicine in Albuquerque.

But the message for men and women who
need antidepressants is that Viagra may help
them stay on the drugs, he said.

“We're not talking about a lifestyle issue.
We’re talking about a medical necessity issue,”
Nurnberg said. Pfizer had no influence on the
design, findings or manuscript, Nurnberg said.

He and several of the other authors disclosed

MOTORISTS leave the city of Indianapolis at rush hour Monday, July 7,

Darron Cummings/AP Photo

2008. Traffic deaths in many states this year are on track to post their
biggest percentage decline since theArab oil embargo in the 1970s as
motorists reduce their driving amid record-setting gas prices.

States also cite other factors
such as police stepping up their
pursuit of speeders and drunken
drivers, as well as better teen-
licensing programs, safer vehicles
and winter weather that kept
many drivers at home. The Gov-
ernors Highway Safety Associa-
tion also says seat belt use is prob-
ably at record levels and will top
90 percent in several states when
figures are released later this year.

But the last time road deaths
fell this fast and this sharply was
during the Arab oil embargo in
1973-1974, when fatalities tum-
bled 17 percent, from about
55,100 to 46,000; and as states
raised the, drinking age to 21 in
1982-83, when fatalities fell 11
percent, from roughly 49,300 to
44,000.

Chuck Hurley, a former offi-
cial with the National Safety
Council and the Insurance Insti-
tute for Highway Safety, said half
of the decline in road deaths dur-
ing the 1970s was attributed to
high gas prices. The remainder
was linked to the lowering of free-
way speed limits to 55 mph.

Republican Sen. John Warner
of Virginia has said Congress
might want to consider reimpos-

ing a national speed limit.

Hurley, now chief executive of
Mothers Against Drunk Driving,
said gas prices have helped curb
drunken driving, too.

Even considering new safety
measures by states, it is now clear
that, just like in the early 1970s,
motorists are cutting discretionary
travel and reducing the kind of
late-night outings-for alcohol that
often lead to deadly accidents,
Hurley said. :

“People are going home early
or stopping by a store and buying
a case of beer and taking it
home,” said Maj. Daniel Lons-
dorf of the Wisconsin State
Patrol.

Peg Withrow, 48, of Columbus,
said she does more walking and
has canceled or delayed trips,
including a planned visit to see
her parents in South Carolina.
When she does get in a car, With-
row and her fiancee discuss
whether it’s cheaper to take a
freeway or city streets.

“Before we leave the house,
we plan a route,” Withrow said as
she loaded groceries into her
Ford F-250 pickup truck, a vehicle
she calls a “gas hog.”

Fatality rates have remained

‘

“Traffic deaths fall.
as gas prices climb

relatively flat over the last 15
years or so, totalling 42,642 in
2006, the last year for which com-
plete figures from the National
Highway Traffic Safety Admin-
istration are available.

Regulators say a better gauge
of road fatalities is the number
per 100 million miles traveled, a
rate that has been declining even
as Americans drive more. In 2006,
that figure fell to its lowest level:
1.42 deaths. i

Yet the drop-off this year is
even greater and appears to be
accelerating.

Indiana fatalities are down 26
percent and on pace to surpass
the lowest level since the state
first began keeping records 18
years ago: 792 fatalities in 2002.

Ohio’s rate is off 20 percent,
and the state recorded just six
deaths over the Memorial Day
weekend, the fewest in 38 years.
Illinois’ total also is off 20 per-
cent, and Wisconsin is down
about 30 percent. 8 = #"s
Preliminary figures show death
rates are down 20 percent in Ten-
nessee, 22 percent in New Jersey,
13 percent in Washington state,
11 percent in Florida and 21 per-
cent in New Mexico, where the
state effort to cut alcohol-
involved fatalities has resulted in
a 35 percent decline in such
deaths so far this year, from 83
to 54.

After the energy crisis of the
1970s, traffic fatalities gradually
crept up in the 1980s as gas prices
dropped and speed limits began
to rise again.

But the number of fatalities
may continue falling if oil futures
contracts are any indication. Most
energy traders do not foresee a
long-term decline in prices,
despite a big decrease last week
and another one Tuesday.

“People aren’t driving as much.
We're definitely seeing a differ-
ence” in crashes, said Pam Fisch-
er, director of the New Jersey
Division of Highway Safety.

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
level of the Conceptis Sudoku increases from Monday to

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.

Democrats Abroad displays an invitation card as supporters of U.S. Democratic pr
idential. candidate, Sen. Barack Obama hand out invitations for Obama’s speech at the Victory Column in
Barlin, Germany, Tuesday, July 22, 2008. Obama will visit Berlin on Thursday, July 24, 2008 and will also meet
with German Chancellor Angela Merkel and Foreign Minister Frank-Walter Steinmeier.

@ By MATT MOORE
BERLIN

Barack Obama comes face to
face this week with a con-
stituency truly eager for change
after eight years of George W.
Bush: Europeans, reports The
Associated Press. ,

Obama can expect an enthu-
siastic welcome when he speaks
at one of Berlin’s most famous
landmarks, the Victory Column,
on Thursday — the first of three
stops in Europe, where polls
show him as people’s over-
whelming favorite in the U.S.
election.

Obama’s youth, eloquence
and energy have turned heads
across the Atlantic, as has his
callfor change. _

For Europeans, America
offers two faces: one of cyni-
cism, big business and bullying

aggression, another of freedom,

fairness and nothing-is-impos-
sible dynamism.

If Bush was seen as embody-
ing that first America, Obama is
viewed as fitting the second role
— one that Europe has histori-
cally loved, respected and relied
on. :
On top of that comes his
charisma. The German news
magazine Der Spiegel splashed
the headline “Germany meets
. the superstar” over a photo of
Obama on its cover this. week.

“Americans need a change,
and what’s good for America is
good for.the whole world,” said
Maike Smerling, a physician
who was born and raised in the
former East Germany.

Juergen Trittin, a leading law-
maker with Germany’s opposi-
tion Greens, pinpointed the
contrast between Obama’s tour
and Bush’s much-protested vis-
its over the years.

“We should be glad that an
American is coming who people
don’t have to demonstrate
against,” Trittin said on N24

television. “The rest of Europe

is jealous that Barack Obama
is speaking here in Berlin.”



MONDAY — FRIDAY

DEMOCRATIC presidential candidate Sen. Barack Obama, D-IIl.,



Jae C. Hong/AP Photo



walks through Ben Gurion Airport in Tel Aviv, Israel, Tuesday, July 22,
2008, after making a statement to the media on the tarmac upon
arrival. Obama spoke of a “historic and special relationship between
the United States and Israel, one that cannot be broken” and one ii-at

he hoped to strengthen as president.

Obama, who will continue to
France and Britain after his
Berlin stop, strikes a chord with
European admirers of the
American ideal that all should
have equal chances of success.

“He’s different from other
politicians. He represents
minorities ‘and he’s down to
earth and smart,” said Ioannis
Ioannidis, a 27-year-old sales-
man in Stockholm, Sweden.
“He comes from nowhere. He
wasn’t born into it, and it’s got
nothing to do with what family
he’s from.” ,

: But beyond that, Obama also
is hitting the right notes with
Europeans on issues that matter
to them. Thursday’s Berlin stop
offers him a chance to reinforce
that impression in a city where
John F. Kennedy, Ronald Rea-
gan and Bill Clinton all made

. famous speeches.

In a speech last week on for-
eign policy, Obama vowed to
fight global warming, stress
diplomacy in dealing with Iran
and produce a clear exit strate-
gy for Iraq — all issues on
which Bush’s_ differing
approaches angered many
Europeans. :

Evoking a time when Europe
looked to America with grati-
tude, Obama called for a 21st
century Marshall Plan to alle-

\

viate world misery because
“that can be our best invest-
ment in increasing the common
security of the entire world.”

Polls in the countries being
visited by Obama make the pre-
sumptive Democratic nominee
Europe’s overwhelming favorite
over his Republican rival, John
McCain.

Some experts have a simple
explanation for Europe’s Oba-
mamania. Josef Braml, an
America expert with the Ger-
man Council on Foreign Rela-
tions, put it bluntly: “He’s not
Bush.”

But Europe’s excitement over
Obama appears to go deeper
than just relief over the prospect
of a break from the acrimonious
Bush years.

For Europeans, perhaps, it
isn’t just that Obama is not
Bush but that he has come to be
seen as the “anti-Bush” — a fig-
ure who represents such a star-
tling contrast to the outgoing
president that there is a sense
the Washington power struc-
ture might be purged of much
that Europeans see as wrong
with American leadership.

Obama “projects the vision
of a better America,” said
Georg Schild, an expert on Ger-
man-American relations at the
University of Tuebingen.

Europeans seem to fecl the
U.S. is on the brink of a funda-

-mental change and see Obama

as the protagonist of that trans-
formation. Such is the sense of
the importance of the Ameri-
can election that France now
has a French Committee to
Support Barack Obama. Paris
Mayor Bertrand Delanoe, fash-
ion designer Sonia Rykiel and
philosopher Bernard Henri-
Levy are in its ranks, as are
ordinary French citizens.

“These elections have reper-
cussions on the whole world,”
said the committee’s president,
Samuel Slovit. “What happens
in the United States will affect
us here. It’s the result of politi-
cal globalization.”

It’s difficult to gauge how
race’is playing out in European
attitudes toward Obama, who
has been anointed by one Ger-
man newspaper as “Der

‘Schwarze JFK” — the black

JFK. But the “feel-good” fac-
tor that many pundits have
identified among educated
white Americans in their sup-
port for Obama may at least in
part be behind Europeans’
eagerness to embrace a black
U.S. presidential candidate.
Despite large minority pop-
ulations across the continent,
only a sprinkling of nonwhites
even hold seats in Europe’s par-
liaments — forget seriously
vying to be a national leader.
“Tt’s a vicarious thrill,” said
Reginald Dale, a senior fellow
at the Center for Strategic and
International Studies’ Europe
Program. “After they’ve
switched off their TV screens
they’re not going to go out and
find a black candidate to put
forward to lead their own coun-
