Improvement
in BGCSE
examination
results

MByLLOYDALLEN

THERE has been a minor
improvement in the country’s
national grade average of stu-
dents sitting the Bahamas Gen-
eral Certificate of Secondary
Education (BGCSE) examina-
tions, as the average rose from
last year’s “D’ to a ‘D+’, Minis-
ter of Education Carl Bethel said
yesterday.

Mr Bethel announced yester-
day that the 2008 national average
for both the Bahamas Junior Cer-
tificate (BJC) and the BGCSE
examinations have risen.

According to Minister Bethel,
“In expressing pleasure at the
improvements in student achieve-
ment this year over the last year,
particularly in the BJC, but also in
the BGCSE, it must be acknowl;
edged that we are not yet at the
level that we need and earnestly
desire to attain.”

Also commenting on the
results was Philip Simon, Execu-
tive Director at The Chamber of
Commerce. Simon says, “An
upward trend is good news.”
However he adds, “Education
remains one of the top priorities
and business issues for the nation.
The better educated the poten-
tial work force, the better we are
to compete competetively.”

During a press conference at
the Ministry of Education, Mr

SENIOR members of a
political -party
shocked that one of their
colleagues was spotted out-
side a noted local brothel
by police officers last week.

While it was noted that
the party has endured some
degree of sexual scandal in
the past, party supporters
were noticeably taken-
aback as word spread

wildfire yesterday.
According to well-placed
party sources, the parlia-
mentarian was said to have
leadership aspirations —
despite his noticeable lack
of charisma and perceived
drive for the job.
However, as sources indi-
cate, this latest travesty has
undoubtedly scuttled any
future political dreams the

parliamentarian might have

had.

“He is finished,” said one
source. “Where can he go
in the party now? Whenev-
er he opens his mouth they
will say, ‘is this the guy
who got caught in front of
the whore house?’ Come

‘on, he is finished.”

Another political contact
added, that “there is no
coming back from this.

“Tt seems as if these guys
can’t help from getting
themselves into trouble. If
anything, this clears the
way for anyone else who
one day wants to lead this
party,” he said.

Man ‘shot by
_ police’ was —
ym ey: a tT

@ By CAPUCINE DAYEN






THE 22-year-old man who
was reportedly shot by police
in Ridgeland Park on Sunday
was out on bail after being
charged with two murders,
police told The Tribune yes-
terday. ,

The 22-year-old man was
shot in the leg after he alleged-
ly engaged in a shoot-out with
police.

Police on Sunday arrested
one man and shot the 22-year-
old, who was accused of car-
rying handguns in Nassau.

The shooting took place at
around 4pm after concerned
residents reported seeing a
man carrying a gun in Ridge-
land Park, Independence Dri-
ve.

Police officers, who quickly
arrived at the scene, claim a
man pointed a .357 handgun
containing six rounds of
ammunition in their direction
before they fired at him sev-
eral times, shooting him in the
Ieg.

The 22-year-old man was
taken to Princess Margaret
Hospital where he is in stable
condition. The case is under
investigation.

No national party convention for FNM

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

THE Free National Movement
will not have a national party con-
vention this year, party chairman
Johnley Ferguson confirmed yes-
terday.

The governing party has not
had a national convention since

2005, when Hubert Ingraham was
again elected to lead the party.

The FNM will, however, have

“a function” later on in the year,
said Mr Ferguson. The details of
this event will be made public as
soon as it is organised.

When asked if the FNM was
planning a national convention
for next year, the party chairman
did not wish to speculate on this

possibility. When a party is in
government, he explained, con-
ventions are not “as frequent” as
they would be when the party is
in opposition.

Mr Ferguson said that party
members have not been upset
that there hasn’t been a conven-
tion since 2005. The party still has
its monthly meetings, he said.

to the end of Tommy Turnquest’s
term as leader of the party. Mr
Ingraham, who initially said that
he would not enter the race, did
so to the surprise of Mr Turn-
quest, and beat him convincingly
to regain control of the party.

Mr Ingraham received 234 out
of the 373 votes in the race, com-
pared to 99 votes for Mr Turn-
quest and 40 votes for Dion
Foulkes.

Brent Symonette beat Carl
Bethel and Sidney Collie to
become deputy leader of the
FNM. He received 168 votes,
while Mr Bethel only secured 124,
and Mr Collie 79.

Desmond Bannister beat out
Loretta Butler-Turner to win the
party chairmanship. He received
214 votes and she won 155. Mr
Bannister stepped down from the

position after he was elected to
the House of Assembly and
appointed to the Cabinet follow-
ing the FNM’s 2007 electoral vic-
tory. Mr Ferguson took over from
him.

The PLP had its first conven-
tion since 2005 last February
when it elected the country’s first
female party chairman, Glenys
Hanna-Martin.

Cynthia Pratt also announced
then to the country that she will
not run again for the St
Cecilia seat which she has won
on three consecutive occasions
since 1997.

Leadership questions are still
an issue in the opposition party,
however, despite the unopposed
re-cleciton of Mrs Pratt to the
deputy leader post and Perry
Christie to that of party leader.

Claim that BPSU president made
‘last-ditch effort to swing polls’

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

WITH the Bahamas Public Ser-
vice Union (BPSU) elections
looming, some of those opposing
current president John Pinder
claim he has made a “last-ditch
effort to swing” the September
polls by belatedly announcing
major upgrades to the BPSU hall
site.

The plans were announced at a
July ceremony to rename the hall
after PLP stalwart Clement T May-
nard — a move which itself was

‘denounced as a “smokescreen”

tactic on the part on Mr Pinder to
hide his “love affair” with the
FNM, which is alleged to be com-
promising his ability to serve the
membership.

Taking the tone of their cam-
paign up a notch, candidates
Michael Stubbs, Sloane Smith,

Derrick Ferguson and Rudolph -

Stubbs said: “We feel and our
members continue to express that
our president is basically in bed
with the government. This is evi-
dent by his deafening silence on
outstanding issues concerning our
members.”

They added: “The fact that he
has secured architects drawing of
the new BPSU hall less than two
months before elections is seen by
us and our members at Ministry
of Works as just another political

ploy.” .
Mr Stubbs, Mr Smith and Mr
Ferguson announced their inten-
tions in early July to run for Presi-

dent, Vice President and Secre-

tary-General of the country’s sec-
ond largest union.

Rudolph Stubbs joined
the group — who have dubbed
themselves the “Eagle Team” —
shortly afterwards, and also
will be running for Vice
President.

Their platform calls for greater
transparency, consultation and fis-
cal prudence in union business,
and they aim to fix the union’s mal-
functioning medical plan which is
allegedly not accepted at Doctor’s

Hospital and by numerous private:

doctors in light of financial prob-
lems.

Mr Smith told The Tribune it is
irresponsible of Mr Pinder to have
announced that a new BPSU hall
will be built at significant cost to
the union while the member’s
medical plan has not been proper-
ly underwritten.

“It is amazing that a president
should come at this time with that,”
said Mr Smith.

“Why would we invest millions
in this and not try to secure the
people’s medical fund first?”

The team-is also upset about an
alleged lack of consultation on the
part of the incumbent president
about the renovation proposals.

Project

“Whom did he consult and did
he consult our members on the
largest possible scale? He must not
forget we are the ones who have to
pay for this project so we should
have been made aware of this from
at least three years ago.”

Mr Pinder said in July that ren-
ovations would focus on turning
the site into a commercial-type
property which will include prop-
erty rentals, “a 24-hour day care
centre, a wellness centre, a state-of
the-art training centre, a much larg-

er and improved meeting hall, and
will house the administration of
the union and the medical plan.”

Construction, he said, would
begin within a few months, and
costs are projected to reach $4.5
million.

He attributed the decision to
name the hall in Mr Maynard’s
honour4o his commitment to the
development and education of
public workers, and the fact that he
initially purchased the property
where the building now stands.

According to its website, the
BPSU represents around 5,000
public: service workers, although
the Eagle Team claim member-
ship has fallen as a result of dis-
gruntlement with Mr Pinder’s lead-
ership.

Among those represented are
employees located throughout gov-
ernment ministries, corporations
and boards.

The opposing group again
stressed their own independence
from “political alliance with or
commitment to any political party”
yesterday.

This follows an earlier rebuttal

in the wake of claims by Mr Pinder
that he was “hearing that the oppo-
sition is helping to finance some
of his opponents” campaigns. A
message left for Mr Pinder was not
returned yesterday.

that sentence would read “electronic machines”
instead of paper.

Instead, thousands of touchscreen devices
are collecting dust in warehouses from Cali-
fornia to Florida, where officials worried about
hackers and fed up with technical glitches have
replaced the equipment with scanners that will
read paper ballots.

An Associated Press Election Research sur-
vey has found that 57:-per cent of the United
States’ registered voters live in counties that will
be relying on paper ballots this fall.

The number of registered voters in jurisdic-
tions that will rely mainly on electronic voting
machines has fallen from a high of 44 per cent

. during the 2006 mid-term elections to 36 per
cent. Much of the rest of the electorate consists
of voters in New York state, who will be using
old-fashioned pull-lever machines.

In fact, because of growth in the electorate
over the past decade, expansion of absentee
voting rules, and expectations of high turnout
for the contest between Barack Obama and
John McCain, some experts are predicting a
record number of Americans will cast ballots on
paper this year.

“More people will be using computer-read
paper ballots than at any other time in the
nation’s history,” said Kimball Brace, head of
Election Data Services, a consulting firm. “As
you get more registered voters and more peo-
ple in the pool, it exacerbates this bigger issues
of paper.”

In 2000, about 97 million registered voters
lived in counties that relied on some form of
paper ballot, Brace said. That figure is expect-
ed to top 100 million this fall, according to the
AP data.

The return to paper creates extra stress on an
already-strapped election system. Cash-poor
counties will have to spend tens of millions of
dollars printing ballots. Voters, many of them
first-timers, may wind up confused by the bal-
lot formats and frustrated by long lines of peo-
ple waiting to use the scanners. And counting
all the paper could hold up the results of the
election.

“After 2000, there was a widespread revul-
sion about paper — everyone had the mental
image of the guy cross-eyed looking at the
punch-card ballot,” said Doug Chapin, director
of the watchdog organization Electionline. “But
there’s no silver bullet. You’re trading one set.
of problems for another.”

All states but Idaho.have junked the punch-
card ballots that caused so much trouble in
Florida. But many plan to use paper ballots
that require voters to fill in ovals with a pen.
The ballots are then read by digital scanners.

Unlike touchscréens, paper can’t malfunc-
tion or be hacked into. But it has to be printed,

shipped and securely stored before and after
Election Day. Counties already paying to ware-
house electronic machines will have to buy
reams of card stock, print extras in multiple
languages, pay for delivery and eventually
destroy the unused ballots.

In counties. that are on their third system in
three presidential contests, officials are retrain-
ing workers in how to use the equipment and
demonstrate it: to voters. Broward County, Fla.,
which was caught in the punch-card maelstrom
in 2000, has produced guides showing voters
how to feed their paper ballots into the scan-
ners.

Other counties making the switch, including
some of Califiornia’s largest, are planning to
collect ballots at polling places and pay workers
overtime to fee:d them into industrial-size scan-
ners at central offices.

None of that: is likely to prevent voters from
making other s\orts of mistakes, such as filling in
the wrong ova] or using the wrong colour pen.

“A lot of officials are in damage-control
mode because they’re going to try to limit the
problems of switching to paper,” said Mike
Alvarez, an exert in voting technology at Cal-
tech in Pasadena. “You will have ballots not
showing up, be:ing printed wrong, the litany of
mistakes voters make with these ballots, and
then there’s incredible pressure in a crowded
polling place for people who are trying to make
their decision.” ;

As Brace put it: “Paper is traditionally the
device that the jpublic is really good at screwing
up.”

In 2000, about 61 per cent of registered vot-
ers lived in counties that relied on some form of
paper ballot, whether punch-cards or fill-in-
the-oval forms, «according to Election Data Sys-
tems. Only 13 per cent of voters lived in coun-
ties that used touchscreens or other e-voting
devices; the rest used pull-lever machines.

With fewer thzin 100 days until November 4,

the first concern for many election officials is

making sure they will be able to get all their bal-
lots printed between the time the national,
state and local silates have been selected and
Election Day.

California, the nation’s biggest electoral
prize, with more than 16 million people regis-
tered to vote, abruptly outlawed most elec-
tronic machines liast summer, creating a poten-
tial crunch in the highly specialized ballot-print-
ing industry. San Diego contracted with a
Washington state company after local busi-
nesses said they couldn’t produce the 3.5 million
extra ballots in the two-month window.

Many paper ballots may wind up in the
shredder.

Last week, Ohio’s secretary of state ordered
all 53 counties using electronic machines to
print paper ballots to accommodate voters in
November who oj9t out of e-voting. A similar
order during the primary resulted in the pulp-
ing of more than a million unused ballots after
only 14,484 voters: asked for them.

Legislation to
protect beaches,
coastlines, reefs

and wetlands

EDITOR, The Tribune.

PLEASE publish this open
letter to Prime Minister Hubert
Ingraham requesting legislation
to protect Bahamian beaches,
coastlines, reefs and wetlands.

The Rt Hon Hubert A Ingra-
ham, MP

Prime Minister and Minister
of Finance

Office of the Prime Minister

Nassau, The Bahamas

Dear Mr Ingraham:

Over the years, the Bahamian
Government has stated that
coastal ecosystems, including
wetlands, beaches and coral reefs,
are among the country’s most
valuable assets.

The Government demon-
strated its commitment to pro-
tecting these assets by ratifying
the Convention on Biological
Diversity, the Ramsar Conven-
tion and by passing the Conser-
vation and Protection of
the Physical Landscape Act
1997,

However, in spite of interna-
tional agreements, national leg-
islation and frequently stated
proclamations, the Bahamian
Government continues to allow
developers to undertake projects
that destroy beaches, coastlines
and, in some cases, even entire
islands and reef systems. *

The Bahamas First State of
the Environment Report 2005
(GEO Bahamas 2005) reconfirms
this position when it states:

Varying degrees of erosion
can be observed on many of the
beaches in The Bahamas. The
major causes are construction on
the sand dunes, removal of sand
dunes for development and
buiiding in the active beach zone,
inappropriately siting structures
on the coastline in the active
beach zone, and ill-planned
coastal development."

In fact, over the past 20 years,
much of the most permanent
damage to beaches and coastlines
has resulted from development
on or too close to the shoreline.

In keeping with The Bahamas’
obligations and commitments, in
principle and in law, and in the
best interests of preserving the
natural assets of The Bahamas
for future generations, I urge the
Government of The Bahamas to:

e Issue a public statement con-
firming that it supports the pro-
tection of Bahamian beaches and
coastlines;

e Stop immediately the con-
struction of channels, canals
and/or construction on or
through beaches;

e Enact appropriate legislation
to establish minimum setbacks
for construction near the coasts

BEC bills and
fuel surcharge

EDITOR, The Tribune.

August 4, 2008

BEC bills and fuel surcharge are on the lips of most people
today more than the sip-sip of that personality or another as
certainly we cannot continue to be forced to pay these prices for
such a basic commodity.

In Budget 2008-09 it was announced that BEC will no longer,
for two years, pay any Custom Duty or Stamp Tax on their fuel
— Bunker C and Diesel — it might be too early to see whether
this will have positive effect but certainly our last bills indicated
that even with a reduced consumption of units your bill more than
doubled.

If the truth was told during the Budget Debate surely it should
have been told that actually Government does not pay any elec-
tricity bill, per se, as they offset their bill against what BEC’s liability
to Customs Duty and Stamp Tax is.

Minister of State responsible for Utilities indicates that BEC has
a serious cash-flow problem — I can understand that if Govern-
ment has the luxury of not actually paying their bills and unless
they are now paying them, how can BEC have any cash as the fuel
cost even without Duty, etc, have gone up substantially.

Can the Minister of State confirm that BEC is now being paid
for utilities used by Government and its agencies and how much
is their monthly billings?

It is total madness, I suggest Editor, that the Ministry of
Finance cannot perceive and understand by leaving the Duty
on Diesel, this is having an enormous negative impact on the econ-
omy — why increase jitney fares which will hurt hundreds of those
in the lower economic group whilst a simple adjustment of the
Duty will resolve what the Jitney operators need?

Gas Station operators — guys you have to be kidding if you
really mean what you are saying — your margins have not been
changed so what you made at $3.00 a gallon is the same today,
however we appreciate possibly your costs for operating have
increased, as BEC has gone up so much and your pumps run on
electricity.

EPA and its effect
on the Bahamas

EDITOR,
The Tribune.

Can someone tell me how many manufacturers in Europe will stop
selling product to The Bahamas or how many investors will stop
investing here if we do not sign on to the EPA?

Conversely, with the EU threatening to add an 8 per cent import duty ,
on crawfish imports from The Bahamas if we don't sign on, will this pre-
vent Bahamian crawfish exporters from selling to Europe, or will they
simply discount their price or find other buyers?

These actions of buyers and sellers are better known as the free mar-
ket. They transact business every day now without government involve-
ment.

Outside of government mechanisms already in place, like prevention
of fraud and misrepresentation between buyers and sellers, why do we
need an EPA to complicate the issue?

Anger as generator ¢

blocks entrance to
prime tourist spot

CAB-DRIVERS were furious
yesterday after a generator “the
size of a house” was left blocking
the entrance to one of Nassau’s
prime tourist spots.

The huge box-like contraption
and its trailer stopped taxis gain-
ing access to Fort Charlotte,
where visitors get an insight into
18th century Nassau military life.

“The generator was apparent-
ly used at a weekend event and
was just left there,” said Robert
Johnson, known to cab-driving
colleagues as “The Reconciler”.

But a supervisor at the Antiq-
uities and Monuments Corpora-
tion yesterday said Mr Johnson’s
complaints were unreasonable
as the generator only blocked
access for around five hours
between Sam and 10am on Tues-
day.

And he suggested that, before
complaining, people like Mr
Johnson should look at the big-
ger picture.

The supervisor said events like
the one over the weekend were
necessary for funding the upkeep
of the fort.

“Antiquities and Monuments
is not one of the major govern-
ment corporations, so you can
imagine our budget is substan-
tially smaller. The generator was
a part of a function that we had
rented the grounds out for over
the weekend - it ended at five in
the morning,” said the official.

He said that within 20 minutes
of a complaint reaching the cor-
poration about the generator still

being in place, the equipment
was being unwired, and moved.

“It is my fault that no ‘detour’
sign was put in place,” he admit-
ted, adding that Mr Johnson had
blown the situation out of pro-
portion.

“It’s not something that hap-
pens every day.”

But the taxi-driver was
adamant the affair was “just
slackness on the part of some-
body.”

“The generator was left in the
moat where cab-drivers get
access to the fort entrance. This
was an impediment to tourism.
Passengers were complaining
and wondering why anyone
would do that.”

Mr Johnson and other drivers
were incensed that a major
tourist spot should be obstructed
at a time when business is down.

“It is the ‘don’t care’ attitude
that’s so annoying,” he told The

Tribune, “Tourism is down and
most cab-drivers are hurting.

At a time when Bahamians

was unacceptable that the, fort

“Business is getting so tight

Diver almost killed

THE TRIBUNE





by a speedboat

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

FREEPORT - A diver was almost run
over and killed by a speedboat at Taino
Beach during the Emancipation Day holi-
day, a senior police official reported on
Tuesday.

Christopher Pratt, 42, was out on a rubber
raft about 100 yards from the shore when
the incident occurred at around 6.45pm.

He was able to jump off the raft, barely
escaping serious injury and possible death.

Chief Superintendent Basil Rahming said
that Mr Pratt, a manager at the Grand

Bahama Shipyard, was using his rubber
raft for diving when he saw the speedboat
heading directly towards him at full
throttle.

“He just managed to dive overboard and
barely get out of the way before the boat
crashed into the raft and went hurling over
it,” said Mr Rahming.

He said Mr Pratt escaped unhurt, how-
ever, the raft was badly damaged.

Investigations continue.

Police are also investigating a traffic acci-
dent which occurred on the August Monday
holiday.

A 36-year-old man walked away with
only minor injuries after his vehicle over-

turned on the West End Highway on Mon-
day. ;

According to police, George Duncombe
was driving his Nissan Altima along the
highway around 1.40am on Monday when
he lost control of the vehicle in the vicinity
of Bahama Beach.

Chief Supt Basil Rahming said Mr Dun-
combe was allegedly speeding and failed
to properly negotiate a curve. The vehicle
skidded off the road and overturned sever-
al times before coming to rest several hun-
dred feet in the bushes.

Mr Duncombe sustained only minor lac-
erations to his neck and refused medical
attention.

HERE are petrole-

um deposits being
exploited off the northern
coast of Cuba. There are
petroleum deposits off the
Florida coast.

It therefore seems that it is
only a matter of time before
petroleum will be found
below the waters of The
Bahamas.

In fact it is surprising that

ever franchise is sold with the

bours.

“SEARS ROAD
Safe, tightknit, a community
that makes us feel proud

@ By CAPUCINE DAYEN



UST a few feet away from

the hustle and bustle of
downtown Nassau, members of
tne Sears Road community still
enjoy a bit of quiet.

Elva and Padderson Sweeting
have lived in the same old colo-
nial home on Sears Road for the
past 42 years.

The couple told The Tribune
yesterday that they feel safe in
the area and are proud of the
tight-knit community which exists
in their neighbourhood. ;

A small group of the area’s
residents work together to make
the small park that they all share
as lively as possible.

Twice a month, the whole
neighbourhood comes together
in the park to share their stories
over some hot-dogs and sodas.

On Christmas and Columbus
Day, the Sweetings and their
neighbours manage to get almost
300 people together to celebrate
the holidays.

Gatherings and functions which
take place throughout year in the
neighbourhood allow the com-
munity to raise funds to maintain
the park they all have grown to
cherish.

However, not everything is
perfect for the Sweetings and
their neighbours.

Traffic has had a damaging
effect on the small neighbour-
hood.

There is not much traffic in the
morning, but in the afternoon
people coming off the Paradise
Island Bridge cross over Shirley
Street and then drive through
Sears Road, the Sweetings said.

The jitney buses also use the
road as a short-cut.

The noise the vehicles produce,
the Sweetings said, is very irritat- §
ing for the community, which is
mostly made up of retirees.

The Sweeting’s neighbour
Eugene Higgs moved from Har-
bour Island to the Sears Road
community 25 years ago.

He has kept his home authentic
and appreciates the fact that he
can count on his neighbours for
assistance.

Like the Sweetings, Mr Higgs
said that traffic in the area has
become a nuisance.

“The traffic has changed dras-

When he first moved to the
area there was hardly any traffic
at all. Even though the traffic has
more than doubled in the last
couple of years, Mr Higgs said
that the government has done
nothing to minimise the negative
impact on the residents.

Scotiabank reaches out
to inner-city children

INNER-CITY children were
inspired to participate in after
school activities such as basket-
ball and were given new school
bags during this year’s annual
Southern Recreational Grounds
Summer Youth Camp.

Now into it’s 16th consecutive
year, the camp is spearheaded
by Perry Pratt and a group of
former outstanding athletes from
the area who are committed to
giving back to the community
that once helped to shape them
as young boys.

Among the group, Kingsley
“Boy” Moxey, Courtney “Old
Gal” Strachan, Benny Cooper
as well as others who grew up
around the “government
grounds” basketball courts.

During the summer camp,
which is sponsored by Scotia-
bank Bahamas, sessions were
held Monday through Friday
with complete basic fundamental
drills and pep talks about the
game, friendship and the lessons
of life.

“This was the kind of stuff
that got my attention and
attracted Scotiabank to the
group,” said Michael Munnings,
Scotiabank’s senior manager of
marketing and public relations.

“What Perry Pratt and his fel-
low instructors have been doing
for the past many years for the
inner-city kids is really what our
bank’s social outreach pro-
gramme, called the ‘Bright
Futures Programme’, is all
about.

“We make it our business to
find outstanding services like
this worthwhile summer camp
to partner with and assist those
in our communities who really
need the help,” he said.

Mr Pratt, now in his early for-
ties, said he was inspired to start
the camp 16 years ago when he
got a “burning desire” to do
something for the many young
people who were just “hanging
around” with nothing to do.

“I prayed about it and then
asked myself what could I do to
make a difference. Understand-
ing my limitations, I knew that I
liked basketball and really want-
ed to help the kids, so why not
teach them the little I knew
about the game, and here I am
16 years later still at it,” he said.

“My group of instructors who
do this year in and year out, do it
forthe love of the game and to

make a difference in our com-
munity. This is our way of trying
to stop crime and better the
mindset of our young people.
These are good kids, but they
need nurturing and love. They
need discipline and a helping
hand, that is why I am thankful
and most appreciative that Sco-
tiabank has taken the time out to
do what they do for the camp,”

Mr Pratt said.
This year, Scotiabank through
it’s Bright Futures Programme,

journeyed to the Southern

Recreational Grounds to inspire
the children there.
Scotiabank then treated the

children to a lunch of pizzas, -

chicken and soft drinks. They
also donated fully loaded school
bags to the children.

Mr Rigby said the booklet is “not political” but
addresses the myriad “vexing” issues successive gov-
ernments lost in “political tribalism” have not been
able to fix.

“I believe that we have to somehow move the
politics out of a national conversation (to) how do we
ensure that we build a country where all Bahamians
can be prosperous. Where our children could be
guaranteed of a sound, quality education. Where we
don’t have to be having these empty discussions (on)
how do we fix our health-care system... How do we go
about protecting our borders?"

“Somehow, no matter which political party is in
office, election after election — we have not been
able to fix these small, vexing problems and in the
mainstream what’s happening in’my view is that the
greatest that we ought to be boasting about in our
country is being lost, because we are being labelled by
this political tribalism that exists.”

The 31-page booklet, “A Blueprint for the Future”,
outlines Mr Rigby’s opinions on educational reform,
the justice system, the role of youth, Bahamian fam-
ilies, social advancement, protecting our democratic
principles and institutions, and other topics.

In chapter one of the report, Mr Rigby argues
that the country is facing an economic crisis due to
poor fiscal planning and lack of vision. He claims
the country’s national economic priority is attracting
foreign investments for tourism developments,

instead of encouraging Bahamian ownership of the
economy.

“Bahamians must be the primary beneficiaries of
a growing economy...A new economic model must be
created which will build on the success already
achieved in the tourism and financial services sector,”
he suggests.

The model should include a 30-year national eco-
nomic development plan that addresses in part
Bahamian entrepreneurs, tourism development, the
establishment of a mayor for the city of Nassau,

tax regime and public sector reform.

Ata press briefing yesterday to launch the book-
let, Mr Rigby said the publication “is not intended to
have all of the answers for our present and future
challenges” but should facilitate talks for a “struc-
tured framework for change.”

not a bank loan, it is a non-recourse loan; it’s
about private investors who made private
investment in it,” he said on Wednesday.

Mr Ginn flew to Grand Bahama to reaffirm
his company’s commitment at West End, where
development of key elements of the projects
are beginning to take shape on the southern
ocean shore properties. ,;

He explained that the loan was made on
about 668 of the 868 lots on three tracts of
land situated on the southern shore proper-
ties.

“Two hundred of those lots are sold and

released and they are in the hands of the own-

ers, so the loan is only on 668, and so that
property has an escrow account. We don’t get
paid back for the escrow, part of the per cent of
the proceeds belong to payoff so... this loan is
going to be fine.

“They (CS) don’t have any cost to finish up
those lots and they get 100 per cent of the pro-
ceeds on those lots, so... they are going to be
fine,” Mr Ginn said.

Mr Ginn said that Credit Suisse approached
Ginn and made the loan offer for private
investors.

He stated that $134 million of the money
was put in a bankruptcy protected escrow
account for the sole purpose of completing the
development in the area. He said $36 million
alone was put in escrow for completion of the
first golf course.

He explained that Ginn’s core property and
all north shore property in Old Bahama Bay,
which represents $200 million worth of invest-
ment, fall outside of the credit. :

safe and secure

“This document, too, was born out of a call fora }
clear vision for The Bahamas. There remains the :
perception that this nation is devoid of ideas anda ;

loan on it and that is where all core property
will go. .

“All the money to develop all the facilities is
in place in an escrow account — you can’t get
it any safer than that, said Mr Ginn.

“It is a protected and completion on that
property and everything else associated with
operation facilities. We own both golf courses
and all the land outside the facility, including
the harbour basin outside the facility, hotel,
restaurant, and club houses — all of things it
takes to run that property, and OBB has no
debt on it and all funded by our equity and it
will continue to stay that way,” he said.

Mr Ginn is confident that the Ginn will suc-
ceed in Grand Bahama. He also noted that
two of the three Ginn resorts are completed in
the US.

He said the economy and the housing market
is at an all time low in the US.

“T have been in the business for 40 years and
I have never seen one that got as much pro-
tection for customers that are buying, and much
commitment as our company has put up to
assure that we do what we say we are going to
do.

“Business is business and there are tough
times and the naysayers are going say what
they are gonna say, but at the end of day we are
going to be in the Bahamas for many genera-
tions to come and there is virtually nothing
that I can think now that can stop us from
making that goal become a reality,” he said.

The Ginn project at West End sits on 1,975
acres of property that will consist of 4,400 con-
do and hotel units and 2,800 lots. A 20-storey
tower, mega yacht harbour, casino, and marina,
and two championship golf courses are some of
the key elements of the resort project.

FROM page one

According to reports,
the MP was seated in his
vehicle in the parking lot
of the now infamous
Mayfair Hotel on West
Bay Street around
1.30am.

The MP, whose identity
is being withheld, was
said to be seated in the
front seat with the female
prostitute in the passen-
ger seat when officers
approached the car.

The Jamaican, sources
indicate, got out of the
car as the MP informed
officers that he was there
simply to meet his
“friend”. When asked if
the MP was her friend,
the prostitute is said to
have answered “yes”.

As there was no proof
that the MP was engaged
in any affair with the
prostitute, officers let him
go without incident.

Bahamian men
post nude pictures
on gay social
networking website

FROM page one

The site is an online social
networking site for gay men,
where thousands of men from
around the world create pro-
files of themselves hoping to
meet other men interested in
some sort of relationship.

There is an entire section
dedicated to Bahamians on
the site — as there is for other
countries. Men post pictures
of themselves, often nude,
along with other information
intended to entice potential
viewers to either begin a
friendship or set up a sexual
rendezvous.

Surprisingly, many of the
pictures show the faces of the
men, as the Bahamas is an
extremely homophobic coun-
try, and being identified as a
homosexual can lead to job
loss, ridicule and harassment.

Interesting categories are
used by the men to describe
themselves to potential view-
ers.

Along with traditional infor-
mation such as height, weight
and occupation, the profiles
often state what type of sex is
desired by the man — group or
one-on-one — in addition to
his HIV status.

Genital size and the man’s
preferred sexual position in
the relationship is also a part
of the descriptions.

The site is very similar to
other social networking sites
such. as Facebook and hi5
except that it has many sexu-
ally explicit pictures and it is
specifically geared for gay
men.

Men on the site claim to be
chefs, bankers, businessmen,
nurses and many other pro-
fessions.

“T think that as technology
becomes more widely avail-
able, more and more Bahami-
ans are meeting in virtual
spaces,” said Erin Green, a
local gay, lesbian, bi-sexual

and transgendered (GLBT)
activist yesterday.

The Internet is allowing
Bahamians to experience
globalisation of their “social
lives” said Ms Greene, refer-
ring to the wider phenome-
non of social networking sites
homosexuals participate in a
similar fashion to heterosex-

uals.

Ms Greene said that she
does not believe that these
dating or networking sites are
inherently “unhealthy”
“bad”.

“Any new space for us to
socialise in and interact with
each other is a good thing,”
she said.

The fact that gay people are
barred from, or refuse to enter
traditional real spaces,

she explained, “makes a vir-

tual space even more appeal-
ing.”

Ms Greene, however,
acknowledged that there are
predators on social network-
ing sites who are looking for
illegal sexual experiences.
These include paedophiles
and misguided minors seek-
ing attention and affection.

“This is a vexing problem
for the Bahamas as we are just
really entering the age of com-
puters,” she said, noting that
the country has not yet creat-
ed the necessary infrastruc-
ture to facilitate the safe use of
the Internet.

“So we have a case of
underage boys assuming an
adult persona and initiating
relationships with grown men.
And grown men actively seek-
ing underage and young
boys...on the sites,” she said.

It should not be assumed,
however, that most or many
of the men on the site are sex-
ual deviants.

One man who claims to be
Bahamian said on his profile
that he is merely a “sweet guy
looking for someone who
knows how to treat a real
Bahamian guy.”

“T felt that this partnership
could make a significant con-
tribution to the high-end duty-
free market place for a prod-
uct geared towards women
visitors to our islands focus-
ing on fashion, what’s hot,

.what’s not, skin care, spas,

ties, events and things to do,”
said Tribune president Mr
Robert Carron.

“We were determined to
produce one of _ the
Caribbean’s best high-end
duty-free magazines. Our
team conferred with a leading
team of local photographers,
graphic designers and copy-
writers to produce a magazine
that I’m proud of,” he added.

The magazine is delivered
free room-to-room at all Nas-
sau’s top hotels — and exclu-
sive Family Island resorts, too.

It is read by guests at
Atlantis, Cove, Ocean Club,
British Colonial Hilton, Com-
fort Suites, Sandals, Sheraton,

“We've launched it in a

a bigger bang for their buck!”
said Mr Carron.

The magazine, published
quarterly, has a print run of
120,000 copies. * '

Michael Bethell, sales exec-
utive for the magazine,
believes that advertising in the
magazine is a win-win. “With
our first edition, we have
secured the confidence of

ture a greater number of

Government
plans to invest

Minister says there is ‘a real

@ By KATHRYN

Bahamas Information
Services.

GOVERNMENT is plan-
ning to invest in‘an all-Bahami-

an craft centre to be located.

in the former Bahamas Cus-
toms Department building.
Minister of Education Carl
Bethel said that this centre will
allow Bahamians to have a
market to sell arts and crafts

to tourists.

Addressing the high school
students enrolled in the Min-
istry of Education and RBC
Finco’s summer arts workshop
at the Mall at Marathon, Min-
ister Bethel said that there is ‘“‘a
real market in artistic cre-
ations.” ;

“Artists can make good
money. It’s not only for pret-
ty,” he said.

Hotel Association’s
educator internship
programme all set

IN an effort to expose young
persons to myriad job options in
the tourism sector, this month
over 200 of the nation’s educa-
tors will spend a week in the
industry learning the best way
to prepare young people to take
advantage of those opportuni-
ties.

‘ The experience is part of the
Bahamas Hotel Association’s
fifth Annual Summer Educator
Internship Program, beginning
August 18 in collaboration with
The Ministry of Education and
The Ministry of Tourism and
Aviation.

Public-and private school

_ teachers, principals, counsellors,

and MOE subject specialists
from 31 subject areas and all
grade levels will align with local
business partners to get a hands-
on “snapshot” of the industry.

“We are thrilled to be able
to once again create this oppor-
tunity to strengthen and build
on the relationship we have
with the Ministry of Education
and educators throughout The
Bahamas. While tourism is the

lifeblood of our economy,

teachers are its soul which
touches and influences our
potential employees in pro-
found ways.

“We welcome them into our
world to discover our unique-
ness and amazing array of chal-
lenges and opportunities to
build a world-class destination
of choice for us and our cus-
tomers,” said Beverly Saunders,

a member of the BHA execu-
tive committee and vice-presi-
dent of training for Kerzner




International, and the volunteer
chairperson for BHA’s work-

force development initiatives.

With more than 1,000 classi-

fications of jobs within the

tourism industry in The
Bahamas, the internship pro-
gramme presents a powerful
professional development
opportunity for educators to
enhance their understanding of
the industry and the opportu-
nities it presents to young peo-
ple.

According to programme
organisers, it is stimulating edu-
cators to explore new and inno-
vative teaching strategies to
bring tourism into the class-
room.

“We’re encouraged by the
overwhelming response from
educators this year, from both
the public and private schools,
and from Grand Bahama and
the Family Islands as well,” said
Ms Saunders.

For the first time this year,
the internship programme will
also be held on Grand Bahama
concurrent with the New Prov-
idence programme. Over 45
educators have signed up for
the programme on Grand
Bahama and 155 have regis-
tered from New Providence
and the Family Islands.

Economists: Fed stance may prevail into ‘09

@ By MARTIN CRUTSINGER
AP Economics Writer

WASHINGTON (AP) — For a
second straight meeting, the Federal
Reserve has decided to remain on the
sidelines and leave interest rates
alone. In the opinion of many econo-
mists, that stance may prevail not only
for the rest of this year but well into
2009.

The thinking is that the Fed doesn’t
want to cut interest rates further
because of concerns about inflation.
However, at the same time, the
majority of Fed officials don’t want to
start raising interest rates because the
economy is still hobbled by mounting
job losses, a prolonged housing slump
and a severe credit crisis.

‘The Fed cited both worries about
inflation and weak economic activity
in the statement it released after
Tuesday’s meeting explaining its deci-
sion to leave its target for the federal
funds rate, the interest that banks
charge each other, unchanged at two
per cent.

The Fed may not have moved inter-
est rates on Tuesday but it certainly
moved Wall Street. Stocks, already
soaring, extended their advance, with
the Dow Jones industrial average fin-
ishing the day up 331.42 points, or
2.87 per cent. It was the biggest one-
day gain for the Dow since April 1.

Investors were cheered not only by
relief that the central bank did not
signal that rate hikes were imminent
but also by a continued drop in crude
oil prices, which fell as low as $118 a
barrel during the day and are now
down $28 from levels seen on July
1.

The lower oil prices not only help
motorists when they fill up — gasoline
has fallen as well in recent weeks —
but also help the Fed by relieving
inflation pressures.

In a brief statement explaining
Tuesday’s decision, Fed Chairman
Ben Bernanke and his colleagues said
the central bank is still concerned
about the weak.economy and the dan-
gers posed by inflation.

“Although downside risks to

A good business
plan is based on a
sound strategy.

Bernanke testifies on Capitol Hill...

growth remain, the upside risks to
inflation are also of significant con-
cern to the committee,” the Fed said,
splitting the difference between the
two opposing forces battering the
economy.

Analysts said the bottom line mes-
sage from the statement is that the
Fed doesn’t plan to make any changes
in rates any time soon.

“Unless something really weird
happens, I don’t see the Fed moving
before the November election;” said
David Wyss, chief economist at Stan-
dard & Poor’s in New York.

Many economist: believe that the
overall economy, as measured by the
gross domestic product, will post mod-
erate growth of around two per cent
in the current July-September quar-
ter, helped by consumers continuing
to spend the rebate checks sent to
130 million households. But activity is
expected to plunge significantly in the
final three months of this year and
early in 2009 as the impact of the
rebate checks wears off.

Wyss said he is looking for GDP

to actually shrink in both the fourth
quarter and the first quarter of next
year, fulfilling the standard definition
of a recession as back-to-back quar-
ters of negative GDP.

_ However, Wyss looks for growth
to start rebounding next spring as the
problems related to housing begin to
lessen. It is then that he believes the
Fed will start raising interest rates as
it turns its attention to making sure a
rebounding economy doesn’t ignite
inflation.

The November presidential elec-
tion is another reason many econo-
mists believe the Fed will prefer to
keep rates unchanged at its next two
meetings on September 16 and Octo-
ber 28-29.

“The Fed doesn’t like to be in the
spotlight during the heat of a presi-
dential campaign,” said David Jones,
chief economist at DMJ Advisors. “I
think they will prefer waiting now
until they can get a befter view of
how the economy is unfolding and
see if financial markets become less
fragile.”

even as physical media sales

from 48.2 in June. It beat econ-
omists’ prediction of a reading
of 49.0, according to the con-
sensus estimate of Wall Street
economists surveyed by Thom-
son/IFR.

A reading below 50 signals
contraction, while a reading
above 50 indicates growth.

In morning trading, the Dow
Jones industrial average rose
161.53 to 11,445.68. The Nas-
daq composite rose 31.01 to
2,316.57 and the Standard &
Poor’s 500 rose 16.80 to
1,265.81.

The industries that grew
include entertainment, recre-
ation, scientific and technical
services, utilities, hotels and
restaurants.

The survey showed that
prices continued to rise, but at
a slower rate than in June.

In a good sign, companies’
order backlogs grew in July.
New export orders fell, how-
ever.

David Noah, president of
InterMart Inc., an eight-person
import-export software com-
pany, said sales are flat and
“it’s taking longer for compa-
nies to pull the trigger on a pur-
chase.”

them,” said Olly Knowles, assis-
tant director of education and
programme participant.

Response from teachers and
educational professionals who
have participated in the shad-
owing programme in 2007 has
shown positive outcomes.

Many felt the experience
assisted them in being better
prepared for the delivery of
career interest and inventory
assessment tools with an
emphasis on helping students
take greater responsibility for
their careers in the hotel and
tourism related industry in the
future.

The private sector is partici-

pating at several levels, con-
ducting workshops following an
opening ceremony on the
changing workplace, and a ‘con-
versation with industry leaders’
on the final day.
’ More than 35 hotels and
tourism-related businesses will
operate as placement and train-
ing sites for interns during the
targeted summer week of field
study in Nassau and Grand
Bahama.

Commenting on the fifth

‘anniversary of the highly suc-

cessful programme, BHA work-
force development manager
Bridget Murray stated: “We are

delighted to be celebrating our
fifth year of internships for our
educators. Having worked with
our educators over the years,
we are assured, from their com-
ments and commitment to the
programme, that they have ben-
efited tremendously from the
exposure. “The programme has
evolved over the years to
include more properties and
allied businesses, as well as
teachers participating in the
one-week immersion. We are
indebted to our host properties
and take this opportunity to
encourage others to join us in
hosting our esteemed educa-
tors!"

PINNACLE from 1B

Neuquen, Argentina. Adjusted
EBITDA was flat at $2.0 mil-
lion for the second ‘quarter of
2008, reflecting inflation and ris-
ing costs,” the company said.
Pinnacle also reported of its
international holdings: “As of
June 30, 2008, the net book val-
ue of the company's casino
related assets was approxi-
mately $3.4 million. For the
three months ended June 30,
2008 and 2007, the adjusted
EBITDA loss was $746,000 and
$452,000 respectively, and for
the six months ended June 30,
2008 and 2007, adjusted EBIT-
DA loss was $1.2 million and
$936,000, respectively. For the
12 months ended December 31,

ship has been very good,” Sab-
rina Ingraham told Tribune
Business.in an interview yes-
terday. “We have women
come in from 13-80 and it is

‘ideal for them because it is

only 30 minutes a day for three
days a week. It is also afford-
able.”

Ms Ingraham said that, like
other businesses, her gym is
experiencing the effects of the
economy, particulary as
Bahamians seek to prioritise
and stretch their money. “We
have seen a slight decline, par-
ticulary in the summer months.
That is understandable though
because people’s routine
changes in the summer, so
gyms all over see a drop. The
kids are out of school, people
are away, So membership to a

gym may be last on the list.”

She added that the business
is also feeling the cost of just
operating. “The cost of every-
thing is going up, just to main-
tain the machines is an added
expense.”

In particular, said Ms Ingra- .
ham, “right now BEC is my
biggest challenge, because of
the high fuel surcharge I have
to run my air conditioning
from 5am to 8pm each day -
that is essential so my bills are
huge.”

The gym focuses on half-
hour training sessions which
allow women to use several
machines to work various parts
of the body and then do
stretches with a trainer.

They also do figure analysis,
weight, height and body fat
measurements.

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.

Olympics come as
investments fall
short in China

@ By TIM PARADIS
AP Business Writer

NEW YORK (AP) — The
Olympics are bringing fresh
attention and money to China
at a time when some investors
might prefer to forget about
it.

Stocks in the country have
fallen sharply since last fall,
offering a painful reminder
that hard times can come to a
nation where “up” once
seemed like the only direction
for the economy and stocks.
The declines are raising ques-
tions about whetlier the much-
heralded economic expansion
-of the world’s most populous
country is simply on hiatus or

in for a more pronounced a

back.

Frederick Jiang, manager of
the Ivy Pacific Opportunities
Fund, contends the downturn
in stocks could benefit savvy
investors.

“T think it’s going to be a
great opportunity to buy Chi-
nese shares because the long-
term growth will be there. Chi-
na is going to grow probably
three times as fast as the. glob-
al average,” he said.

“It’s a very strong valuation
case,” Jiang said of the decline
that has left stocks down more
than 40 per cent and those
shares restricted to Chinese
investors down more than 50
per cent from their highs last
fall.

Even investors in diversified
vehicles like mutual funds have
taken a hit. China region
mutual funds showed a nega-
tive return of 26.7 per cent this
year through the end of July,
according to fund tracker Lip-
per Inc.

Still, long-term investors
have seen hefty returns. China

region funds are showing a
five-year annualized return of
21.7 per cent as of the end of
July and a 10-year annualized
return of 16.8 per cent.

But while the drop in stocks
has meant investors could be
getting a better deal when they
buy, it doesn’t mean the risks
have disappeared.

Jiang blames a scarcity of
resources from oil to raw
materials like iron ore with
squeezing economic growth.
“In the short-term there are a
lot of headwinds.”

He doesn’t think that an

economy running at a stead- |

ier pace rather than a sprint is
a bad thing. The double-digit
growth seen in the past five
years is too much, he contends.
--“J don’t think China should
go back to the 11 to 12 per
cent rate. That’s overheated.”
He contends it should be clos-
er to nine to LO per cent.

A moderate pullback in the
economy could actually bene-
fit longer-term investors, Jiang
contends.

“This slowdown should help
China to sustain growth for the
longer term,” he said. “When
growth ‘slows down the
demand for energy and the
demand for metal will come
down. That may bring down
the inflation.”

Andrew Foster, acting chief
investment officer of Matthews
Asian Funds, also contends
that China has grown too
quickly but is encouraged that
more of its economic expan-
sion in recent years has come
from domestic.demand, not
simply from exports to the US
and other countries. This sig-
nifies an economy that is
maturing, he said.

That’s not to say that the
world’s factory wouldn't be hit

by a weakening global econo-
my.

“A slowdown in the US and
especially a global slowdown
will hit China,” Foster said.

“Growth hasn’t fallen off a
cliff. It’s holding up reasonably
well*but moderating. That’s
true in corporate earnings as
well as the macro economy,”
he said.

While Foster thinks the drop .

in stocks in response to the
cooling economy has been
somewhat overwrought, he
remains concerned about ris-
ing prices because of their
effect on the economy and for
any disruptions they could
bring to economic reforms of
the past decade.

“Every major political tran-
sition in China has had infla-
tion at either the backdrop or
at the forefront,” he said, high-
lighting the importance of
keeping prices in check.

But Foster hopes the gov-
ernment won’t react hastily as
it tries to control inflation.

“Does an increase in the
inflation rate cause govern-
ment officials to clamp down
on the kinds of reforms that
have so benefited China’s
economy?”

Ultimately, though, regard-
less of how bullish investors
might be on the country’s
prospects it’s not wise to invest
too heavily there, Foster
warned. Instead, as with any
investment, a measured
approach is best.

“I do think investors should
have some part of their port-
folio dedicated to these emerg-
ing growth stories in Asia. I
would question whether most
investors are well-served to
have dedicated exposure to a
single country. It’s just too
volatile.”

Bactria

SCOVERED

> Archaeologists uncover ancient city in Afghanistan

CHESHM-E-SHAFA,
Afghanistan

“i CENTURIES-OLD shards
of pottery mingle with spent

ammunition rounds on a wind-

swept mountainside in north-

> ern Afghanistan where French

archaeologists believe they have
_found a vast ancient city.

» For years, villagers have dug
the baked earth on the heights
of Cheshm-e-Shafa for pottery
and coins to sell to antique
smugglers. Tracts of the site that
locals call the “City of Infidels”
look like a battleground, scarred

Ne

by craters.

But now tribesmen dig angu-
lar trenches and preserve fragile
walls, working as laborers on
an excavation atop a promon-
tory. To the north and east lies
an undulating landscape of bar-
ren red-tinted rock that was
once the ancient kingdom of
Bactria; to the south a still-ver-
dant valley that leads to the
famed Buddhist ruins at
Bamiyan.

Roland Besenval, director of
the French Archaeological Del-
egation in Afghanistan,and

leading the excavation, Is san-:

guine about his helpers’ previ-
ous harvesting of the site. “Gen-
erally the old looters make the
best diggers,” he said with a
shrug.

A trip around the northern
province of Balkh is like an
odyssey through the centuries,
spanning the ancient Persian
empire, the conquests of
Alexander the Great and the
arrival of Islam. The French
mission has mapped some 135
sites of archaeological interest
in the region, best known for
the ancient trove found by a
Soviet archaeologist in the

1970s.

The Bactrian Hoard consisted
of exquisite gold jewelry and
ornaments from graves of
wealthy nomads, dated to the
Ist century A.D. It was con-
cealed by its keepers in the
vaults of the presidential palace
in Kabul from the Taliban
regime and finally unlocked
after the militia’s ouster.

The treasure, currently on
exhibition in the United States,
demonstrates the rich culture
that once thrived here, blending
influences from the web of trails
and trading routes known as the
Silk Road, that spread from
Rome and Greece to the Far
East and India.

But deeper historical under-
standing of ancient Bactria has
been stymied by the recent
decades of war and isolation
that severely restricted visits by
archaeologists.

“It’s a huge task because we
are still facing the problem of
looting,” said Besenval, who
first excavated in Afghanistan
36 years ago and speaks the
local language of Dari fluently.

“We know that objects are
going to Pakistan and on to the
international market. It’s very
urgent work. If we don’t do
something now, it will be too
late.”

Looting was rife during the
civil war of the early 1990s when
Afghanistan lurched into law-
lessness. Locals say it subsided
under the Taliban’s hardline
rule, but the Islamists’ funda-
mentalism took its own toll on
Afghanistan’s cultural history.
They destroyed the towering
Buddha statues of Bamiyan
chiseled more than 1,500 years
ago, and smashed hundreds of
statues in the national museum
simply because they portrayed
the human form.

The opening up. of
Afghanistan did little to curb
the treasure hunters. British
author Rory Stewart, who made
an extraordinary solo hike
across the country in 2002,
wrote how poor tribesmen were
systematically pillaging the
remains of a lost ancient city
dating back to 12th century
around the towering minaret of

Jam in western Afghanistan. -

State control is a little more
pervasive in Balkh but still
patchy. The provincial culture
authority says it has just 50
guards to protect historical sites
across an area nearly the size
of New Jersey.

Saleh Mohammad Khaleeq,
a local poet and historian serv-
ing as the chief of the province’s
cultural department, said the
guards ward off looters, but
concedes the only way to safe-
guard Afghanistan’s rich her-
itage is through public educa-
tion.

“People are so poor. They are
just looking for ways to buy
bread. We need to open their
minds as they don’t know the
value of their history. We have
to give them that knowledge
and then they will protect it.”
he said.

Villagers hired as laborers at
Cheshm-e-Shafa recall how they
too used to be among hundreds
of locals who would scavenge
the site they are now paid 230
afghanis (US$4.60) a day to
excavate.

IN THIS PHOTO provided by the Wildlife Conservation Society, a western lowland gorilla silverback is seen among members of a group in the Republic of Congo Thursday,
July 31, 2008. A new census conducted by WCS and the government of the Republic of Congo tallied more than 125,000 western lowland gorillas in the northern part of the
country. Previous estimates from the 1980s placed the entire population of western lowland gorillas, which occur in seven Central African nations, at less than 100,000.

Scientists cheer gorilla

m EDINBURGH, Scotland

CAN there be more lurking
in the mist? Despite a startling
find announced Tuesday that
‘doubled the estimated number
of western lowland gorillas in
central‘Africa, scientists warned
that hundreds of primate species
remain in danger of extinction,
according to the Associated Press.

A census by the Wildlife Con-
servation Society raised the esti-
mate for gorillas in the Congo
jungle from between 50,000 and
100,000 to around 200,000, sub-
stantially changing the picture of
a great ape population thought
devastated by the Ebola virus,
hunting and deforestation.

Warning

While the news was well
received, scientists gathered at
the 22nd International Primato-
logical Society Congress in Edin-
burgh warned against celebrating
too soon.

“Tf verified, the discovery of
these new populations of gorilla
are hugely significant for our
work as conservationists, but we

very real and present danger
these gorillas are in from man
and Ebola,” said John Oates,
emeritus professor of primatol-

ogy at Hunter College in New

York. © 43 a

Oates, said that while the news
was good for the iconic great
apes made famous by Dian Fos-
sey in “Gorillas in the Mist,”
many lesser known primates are
in deepening peril.

Threatened

A report released Tuesday by
the International Union for Con-
servation of Nature and other
groups warned that nearly half
of the world’s 634 species and
subspecies of primates are threat-
ened with extinction due to
human activity.

The figures were particularly
grim in Asia, where more than 70
percent of primates were on the
union’s “Red List” of vulnera-
ble or endangered species.

“There is a danger that we
concentrate on the more famous
species,” Oates said. “What
about the other species that
we’ve identified as in danger?
There are so many that are on

the brink of extinction.”

Among them is the highland
gibbon, which counts just 19
known individuals. The review
warned it will be tough battle to
save that Asian primate from
extinction.

Simon Stuart, with Conserva-
tion International, which pro-
vided data for the review, said
primate populations are shrink-
ing in Asia due to hunting and
habitat destruction — some
linked to the booming biofuel
industry.

“In Malaysia, Sumatra and
Borneo the big problem is
destruction of forests to make

‘way for palm oil and biofuels.

Ironically, with biofuels, some-
thing that is nominally associated
with helping the environment
can have harmful unintentional
consequences,” Stuart said.
Scientists working in the
region described an uphill strug-
gle to save eridangered animals.
Vicky Melfi, from the British-
based Whitley Wildlife Conser-
vation Trust, said the macaque
population had plummeted on
the Indonesian island of Sulawe-
si, where she spent three months

as part of a population count.
“In 1980 the population den-

sity (of macaques) was as much

as 300 individuals per square

kilometer. In 10 years this. had

decreased to between 60°to 20
individuals per square kilome-
ter,” she said.

“Imagine the human popula-

tion of the world reduced to that
of one small town. That’s what
we are talking about here,” Me
added. .

A unique find

Oates, the New York-based
primatologist, said:scientists often
stumble on new species, but he
played down the probability of
finding large new hidden primate
populations such as the one iden-
tified in Congo by the Wildlife
Conservation Society, which is
based at the Bronx Zoo in New
York.

“The habitats in which they
live are largely impenetrabie and
we constantly find new species,”
Oates. said. “Having said that,
this (the western lowland goril-
las) remains a unique find. I
don’t know if we’ll ever find
something on this scale again.”

Too young to

MAARRY

Calls for end to Saudi child marriages
@ RIYADH, Saudi Arabia

AN 11-year-old boy gave out
invitations to his classmates for
a big event his family was plan-
ning this summer — and it was-
n’t his birthday party.

It was his wedding to a 10-
year-old cousin.

Muhammad al-Rashidi’s mar-
riage was eventually put on

hold, his father said, after pres- .

sure from the governor of the
northern province of Hail, who
considered the elementary
school student too young to
malty.

The case is among a recent

spate of marriages involving the

very young reported in the
media and by Saudi human
rights groups. They have been
widely denounced by aetivists,
clerics and others who saysuch

unions ¥ré harmful to the ‘chil °

dren and trivialize the institu-
tion of marriage.

Saudi Arabia is already
rocked by a high divorce rate
that has jumped from 25 per-
cent to 60 percent over the past
20 years, according to Noura al-
Shamlan, head of the research
department at the Center of
University Studies for Girls.

“We are studying this issue
so we can put an end to this
phenomenon,” said Zuhair al-
Harithi, board member of the
Human Rights Commission, a
Saudi government-run rights
group. “These marriages vio-
late international agreements
the kingdom has signed.”

Al-Harithi’s group recently
succeeded in delaying the con-
summation of the marriage of a
10-year-old girl after getting
reports from medical centers in

Hail that she and a man in his
60s had showed up for the
mandatory prenuptial medical
tests.

He said the commission
wrote to the province’s gover-
nor and head of Islamic courts
urging them to stop the mar-
riage.

But there are other marriages
involving children that have
gone ahead.

One involved a 15-year-old
girl whose father, Muhammad
Ali al-Zahrani, a death-row
inmate, married her off to a cell
mate who also was sentenced
to death. The father’s sentence
was carried out July 21, when
he was beheaded for killing
another man.

Pictures of the wedding, held
in the prison in Taif for the
men, appeared in several news-
papers. Media reports said
inmates recited poems and
delivered speeches in the pres-
ence of prison officials. The
teenage bride and other
women, as is the custom here,
held a separate reception out-
side the jail.

The groom, Awad al-Harbi,
and his bride were allowed to
spend two nights together in a
special prison quarters after the
wedding, according to Al-
Watan. Al-Harbi told another
newspaper, Al-Madina, recent-
ly that his wife was pregnant.

There are no laws in Saudi
Arabia defining the minimum
age for marriage. Though a
woman’s consent is legally
required, some. marriage offi-
cials do not seek it. For exam-
ple, a father can marry off a 1-
year-old girl as long as sex is
delayed until she reaches puber-

ty, said one marriage official,
Ahmad al-Muabi.

Known as “ma’thoons,” these
officials have legal authority to
preside over marriage contract
ceremonies. They ask the
groom and the woman’s
guardian if they approve of the
marriage and then give them
the marriage papers to sign.

There are no statistics to
show how many marriages
involving children are per-
formed every year. And it’s also
not clear whether these unions
are on the rise or whether peo-
ple are hearing about them
more now because of the preva-
lence of media outlets and easy
access to the Internet.

But the phenomenon is not

‘new, said Sheik Muhammad al-

Nujaimi, a strong opponent of
the marriages. He and other
clerics, activists and writers have
urged the government to pass
legislation setting the minimum
age for marriage and to resolve
differences among the king-
dom’s religious authorities over
the issue.

“There are different (reli-
gious) opinions regarding the
marriages which is why we need
the government to settle the
issue through legislation,” said
al-Nujaimi.

Such marriages occur not
only in Saudi Arabia. In April,
an 8-year-old Yemeni girl
sought out a judge to file for
divorce from a man nearly four
times her age. Her lawyer said
she was one of thousands of
underaged girls who have been
forced into marriages in Yemen,
an impoverished tribal country
at the southern tip of the Ara-
bian Peninsula.



S Korean firm delivers
commercial dog clones

@ SEOUL, South Korea
BOOGER is back.

An American woman.

received five puppies Tuesday
that were cloned from her
beloved late pitbull, becoming
the inaugural customer of a
South Korean company that says
it is the world’s first successful
commercial canine cloning ser-
vice.

Seoul-based RNL Bio said the
clones of Bernanri McKinney’s
dog Booger were born last week
after being cloned in coopera-
tion with a team of Seoul
National University scientists
who created the world’s first
cloned dog in 2005.

“It’s a miracle!” McKinney
repeatedly shouted Tuesday
when she saw the cloned
Boogers for which she paid
$50,000.

“Yes, I know you! You know
me, too!” McKinney said joyful-
ly, hugging the puppies, which
were sleeping with one of their
two surrogate mothers, both
Korean mixed breed dogs.

The team of scientists working
for RNL Bio is headed by Lee
Byeong-chun, a former col-
league of disgraced scientist
Hwang Woo-suk, who scandal-
ized the international scientific
community when his purported
breakthroughs in cloned stem
cells were revealed as fake in

2005.

Independent tests confirmed
the 2005 dog cloning was gen-
uine, and Lee’s team has since
cloned more than 20 canines.

But RNL Bio said that its
cloning was the first successful
commercial cloning of a canine.

“RNL Bio is commencing its
worldwide services with Booger
as its first successful clone,” the
company said in a statement.

McKinney contacted Lee after
Booger died of cancer in April
2006. She had earlier asked U.S.-
based Genetics Savings and
Clone to clone her dog but the
company shut down due to lack
of demand in late 2006 after only

producing a handful of cloned
cats and failing to produce any
dog clones. |

The Korean scientists brought
the dog’s frozen cells to Seoul
in March and nurtured them
before launching formal cloning
work in late May, according to
RNL Bio.

Lee’s team have identified the
puppies as Booger’s genuine
clones, and his university’s foren-
sic medicine team is currently
conducting reconfirmation tests.

McKinney said she was espe-
cially attached to Booger
because he saved her life when
she was attacked by another dog
three times his size.

UK couple wer
‘strapped

to wings of

2 airplanes

B LONDON

IT WAS Katie and Dar-
ren’s wedding day and they
were in the clouds —
strapped to the top of
biplanes reciting vows |.000
feet above the earth, accord-
ing to the Associated Press,

Katie Hodgson, 23, took
to the skics Tuesday ina full
bridal gown on the top wing
of red-and-white plane oper-
ated by Team Guinot, a
group of stunt pilots. Groom
Darren McWalters, 24, flew
by her side on an identical
plane, while Rev. George

: Bringham — flying ahead of

the couple — married them
over an airborne communi-
cations system.

Sky News. television
footage of the ceremony
showed the bride’s dressed
fluttering wildly in foul
weather as the three shouted
to make themselves heard
over the din of the aircraft.

“Task you therefore, will
you love her, honor and
keep her and be faithful to
her so long as you both shall
live?” Bringham yelled.

“T will!” McWalters yelled
back.

The airplanes sent out
trails of white smoke as the
couple belted out their vows
about 1,000 feet above the
ground. Special microphones
relayed the ceremony to
Rendcomb Airfield near the
English city of Cirencester

: — 90 miles west of London
: — where the wedding guests

were waiting. Wind and rain
eventually cut the flight
short, but the couple said
they had a blast.

Hodgson said that as a girl
she never would have imag-
ined she would wed on the
wing of an airplane.

DO you ever won-

donations, seed and faith
offerings, financial pledges
and goodwill gifts when you
give them to local ministries
or send them abroad to fund
the missions of international

go towards “the building of
God’s kingdom here on

earth”?

ity on all levels. The Archbishop
appoints a financial committee
which includes diocesan mem-
bers with special expertise in the
area of finance and economics,
as well as two members (one
priest and one lay person) from
each of the four archdeaconries.

“The body is mandated to
keep tabs on and scrutinize dio-
cese finances. And any invest-
ments to be made, they would do
due diligence to make sure that
money is used in the most cost-
effective manner,” Archdeacon
Palacious explained, adding that
the committee has to produce an
annual budget and report at the
Diocesan Synod in the month of
October.

Along with the general Church
committee, each parish has a
finance committee, with the
vestry of the parish holding the
actual authority to spend money.
Then, at the Annual General
Meeting each year, the parish's
budget is passed, and the finan-
cial statement from the previous
year is given in order to gauge
performance.

On top of that, some parishes
like St Margaret’s post the previ-
ous Sunday’s collection in the
bulletin each week for its mem-

terly statement on the church’s
bulletin board. But a require-

@ WHAT a wonderful sight it
must have been fo see the Lord in
all of his glory while still on earth.
Luke describes what Peter, James
and John saw as follows: And
while he was praying, the appear-
ance of his face changed, and his
clothes became dazzling white
(Luke 9:29). Was this something
that happened every time that Jesus
prayed alone? Was this for the dis-
ciples' benefit? Was this because
Moses and Elijah also “appeared in
glory...speaking of his departure”?
Was this because Jesus was soon
going to die?

REV. ANGELA
_PALACIOUS _





Jesus is as the Son of God, God
visible in human form, and his divini-
ty and humanity are present together
at all times. How it manifests itself
may vary, but we know that this
same glory is going to be ours when
we become like him on our day of
resurrection. Even now, the glory of
God can settle on us when we are in

What's wrong with the Church?

Upon this rock | will build my
church; and the gates of hell shall not
prevail against it. MATTHEW 16:18B

IN the Hebrew the word church is:
ekkle_sia or ek-klay-see'-ah, which
means a chosen or called-out assembly.

As a people, we've been religiously
trained to equate the word church with
some form of building structure where
folks gather on their set day/days of
worship to perform religious rituals.
What's wrong with this? I'm glad you
asked.

There is nothing wrong with believers
having a place where they can come
together and collectively worship (el-o-
heem’') in spirit and in truth. But what

we've got today are thousands of reli-

gious entertainment houses which we
call churches where folks gather to per-
form .and be entertained with good
music,

In many of these settings if the
music/praise does not meet the enter-
taining expectations of the religious
mind-set, it will only be a matter of time
before they leave in search of another
place where their emotional needs can
be met.

The church of old/yesterday may not
have had all of the instruments and
equipment as the church of today, but
what they did have was much more of
God' anointing. The church today is
filled with religious folks who may have
received Jesus the Christ (Yeshuwa
Messiah) as their Saviour, but they've
not surrendered their lives to Him as
Lord.

The ekkle_sia - ek-klay-see'-ah, the
church that. Yeshuwa spoke of in
Matthew 16:18, is a called-out assembly;
those who have been cleansed by the
washing of the word (cf. John 15:3); and
not by music.

The gates of hell are prevailing





PASTOR

against many religious church goers,
marriages and families because of their
shallowness in the word of God for
which they've substituted music and
dance.

There are some folks who only go to
church for the praise and worship seg-
ment, and in some cases they are either
playing a musical instrument or singing
on a praise team; after they would have
performed the word of God is of little
value to them. The only difference
between this type of Christian and the
person in the night club/disco is the
serving of the alcohol beverage.

The question that is often asked is
“Where is the greater works that Jesus
said that the church would do?”

Well! The greater works will never be
seen among this emotional, entertain-
ment seeking generation but rather
among true worshippers. There is little
difference between the religious
church's praise and worship and the
ladies night or happy hour at the Crystal
Pistol Disco; whereas some of the same
musicians that are playing/serving in the
disco on Saturday nights are also play-
ing/serving in their churches on Sunday
mornings (Matt 6:24).

Any and everybody can have a good,
emotional and entertaining time prais-
ing God; but the true worshippers are
the ones who will worship Him in spirit
and in truth.

The reverence/fear of God has long
left. the religious church whereas
preachers and so-called worship leaders
can live any kind of life and boldly get

prayer as it did with Moses: Moses
did not know that the skin of his face
shone because he had been talking
with God (Exodus 34:29). We may
not have to resort to wearing a veil
as he did, but it is possible for others
to know that we have been with God
by our attitude, speech and action.

We are told that the disciples saw
the glory of the Lord because they
stayed awake. How many of us fall
asleep as soon as we begin to pray
and miss what God wished to share
with us? How many of us neglect to
make room in our busy schedules for
God to have our undivided atten-
tion? When last did we see some-
thing glorious in nature, in our life or
in the lives of those around us?

St Peter writes about the transfig-
uration event in this manner: we had
been eye-witnesses of his majesty.
For he received honour and glory

from God the father when that voice

was conveyed to him by the Majestic
Glory, saying, “This is my Son, my



+—

Beloved, with whom I well pleased."
We ourselves heard this voice come
from heaven, while we were with him
on the holy mountain (Ii Peter 1:16-
18). When we are with the Lord
there is no telling what we will hear
or see.

I invite you to spend the next few
days becoming more attentive and
alert to the movement of the Holy
Spirit in your life. Let this transfigu-
ration moment become an inspira-
tion to you. God wants to reveal
mysteries and wonders to you so
that you may be a more effective
messenger about the grace and glory
of God.

Allow your life to be a spiritual
journey. God desires to accompany
you daily. There is no need to
operate in isolation. Become a part
of a Christian fellowship, develop a
life of prayer, stay alert to God’s
glory all around you, and be a light
to shine in the darkness for some-
one else.



TODAY there are thousands of religious entertainment houses which we cali churches
where folks gather to perform and be entertained with good music.

back into the pulpit and perform their
duties. The religious church js nothing
more than a song and dance act to the
enemy; the divorce rate, adultery,
homosexuality, domestic: abuse, gam-
bling and fornication in the church ts
just as high as or even higher than that
of the world.

What's wrong with the church?

If this question is being asked about
the church of Matt 16:18, the answer is
nothing is wrong with Yeshuwa's
church; for the gates of hell shall never
prevail against her. Now, as it relates to
the religious church, despite all of the
conferences, seminars, books that have
been written, tapes, CD's, etc, they are
powerless against the enemy.

The enemy has effectively deceived
the religious church in the area of praise
and worship to the point that they've
placed music and entertainment above

the word of God. If there is no praise
and worship most folks would boldly let
it be known that church is dead, that
ought to let you know where they are
spiritually. It's time to take the flesh and
entertainment out of the church and
restore true spiritual praise and worship
through clean, sanctified vessels of the
Most High God.

Avoiding ‘burnout’ among church
workers and volunteers - Part 1

@ VERY simply put, burn-out is an
ailment (or as they would say in the

church, an ‘affliction') which renders a

worker indifferent to the job, intensely
bored, highly irritable and basically
interested in three things: lunch hour,

"'knock-off' time and pay day.

Please note carefully that at the outset,
burnout is not the same thing as fatigue,

laziness or discouragement. An employ-.

ee suffering from fatigue who takes a
nice, long vacation, will feel renewed
upon his/her return to the job. A church
worker or volunteer suffering from
fatigue or discouragement may feel like a
new person after a fiery and inspirational
sermon and he/she has had a good
‘shout’, a good cry or otherwise experi-
ence some other emotional discharge as a
result of “going forward to the altar for
prayer”. ;

However, a good, long vacation or a
fiery, inspirational sermon will do noth-
ing for a person experiencing burnout
because, essentially, the crux of the mat-
ter is that such a person has the percep-
tion that he or she is giving (out) more
than he/she is receiving.

That perception is, for the person
involved, a firm reality, which brings
much of the person's available enery,es,
inner drive/motivation and overall inter-
est to a near standstill.

Church workers and other volunteers
can get 'burnt-out' when they are:

© over-utilized, that is, made to func-
tion every Sunday /Sabbath, during the
week and on special occasions

e given, and /or allowed to constantly
take on too many tasks

e performing the same routine or
repetitive tasks, everyday or at every
worship event, for a long time

¢ constantly performing in high-stress
areas

° convinced that no one can do the job
better than they can, so delegation or
being a team player is out of the ques-
tion, and

e given little opportunity to exercise
creativity on the job

Obviously, the antidote to burnout is to
effectively re-motivate the church worker

- or the employee. On a secular job, the

manager's job of motivating an employee
is never done; it is an on-going task. In the
church, in most instances, the leader sees
his job of motivating church workers as
completed soon after the person is
appointed or assigned to an area. Therein
is the problem!

One of the best ways to motivate
church workers is by communicating your
respect and admiration for them as indi-
viduals, demonstrating that you value and
appreciate their work (especially if they
are unpaid volunteers), and providing a
caring environment in which they can
work. Once this happens, a lot of unrelat-
ed things begin to “fall into place” or to
be re-aligned. (Let me add parenthetical-
ly here something I cannot stress enough
as a leadership trainer, and that is that
every person designated as a leader in the
church, whether formally or ‘informally’,



DR ALBERT S.



is making a contribution to the ministry
by virtue of this designation as leader or
people's informal acceptance of such a
leader).

At all times, that leader has a leader-
ship influence, whether positive or nega-
tive. So even a leader without a portfolio,
who is exerting a positive leadership
influence within the ministry community,
should be a target for motivation by the
ministry's chief leader because any posi-
tive behaviour which is not encouraged,
affirmed or (asthe social scientists say,
'reinforced'), soon ceases, and that posi-
tive behaviour will, in fact, soon become
just the opposite (that's a law!).

Once a leader senses or observes signs
of burnout, I would suggest the following

.cight possible amelioration strategies,

based on the knowledge I have gained in
my secular corporate management career
when dealing with 'burnt-out' employees:

1. Broaden the employee's/church
worker's planning responsibilities

2. Involve the employee/church work-
er in departmental problem-solving

3. Broaden the employee's/church
worker's learning base through training
or by providing training opportunities

4. Reward the employee's/church
worker's contributions through recogni-
tion

5. Increase the employee's/church
worker's contact with peers and ‘higher-
ups'

6. Give the employee/church worker
space and time to develop innovative
ideas

7. Communicate regularly and tangibly
your respect for these people as individu-
als

8. Make the working environment as
stimulating and stress-free as possible.

Now, having spent my entire life
around churches, at home and abroad, I
can easily come up with twice as many
ways to de-motivate church workers and
volunteers and hasten their journey
toward becoming 'burnt-out'.

That's the entire substance of my next
exhortation, which I have entitled, “A
dozen and more easy ways to de-moti-
vate workers in the local church”, which
is a continuation of this subject-matter.
Watch for it! ;

Cat Islanders celebrate 52 years
of Home Coming activities

DESCENDANTS of Cat Island
from all walks of life converged on
the pristine, tranquil shores of their
island home in anticipation of :52
years of regatta excellence.

In what is seen as the only home
coming activity of such mammoth
proportions, many Nassau residents
and descendants of Cat Island made
the annual pilgrimage back to their
birthplace.

Vernis Storr, pastor of Mount Sinai

Baptist Church, Douds, New Bight,
Cat Island, and members of her
church opened: their, doors on
Thursday to host a special service
that would invoke God's blessings
. and presence on another Cat Island
regatta.

While Pastor Storr moderated the
event, many of the Nassau-based
committee members who were
responsible for organising the activi-
ties were not in attendance.

Pastor Harrison King said the
opening prayer, and Mrs Grace
Dorsett got the congregation into
the mood of the service with a praise
and worship segment. Catechist
Cedric Wilson, who also serves as
president of the Sailing Club, gave
the welcome address.

Remarks were also given by visit-
ing pastors and clergy, including
Father Chester Burton who brought
greeting from the entire Anglican
communion on the island. Next up
was Ms Valderine Seymour, chief
councilor and member of Mount
Sinai, and lastly Mr Charles D King,
senior island administrator for Cat
Island, who brought greetings.

Bishop Philemon Wilson gave the
charge. His text came from Genesis
4:9 “T do not know; am I my broth-









er's keepers”. Bishop Wilson spoke
of the time in which he grew up as a
little boy when the plans were just in
the making to establish this long
held tradition of home coming.

He admonished the congregation
that we should never stray away
from old traditions that meant so
much to us. And to always realize
the importance of fellowship and
community, and looking out for the
interests of family, friends and neigh-
bours.

Also in attendance was Inspector
Philip Rolle, officer in charge of the

Follow the money

FROM page 19

Archdeacon Palacious’
review.

In regard to salaries, under diocesan
regulations, priests are paid according
to seniority and not according to
church size, and the parish is restricted
in -giving further financial compensa-
tion. So in the end a new priest, though
he heads a large parish, does not make
more money than a senior priest with a
smaller congregation. This is apart
from the Easter offering (given to the
priest), and the Pentecost or Whit
Sunday offering (given to the assistant
priest) each year.

This structure has been put in place
to ensure. accountability on all levels,
and to remove all doubt over whether
or not funds are being misappropriat-
ed.

“Leaders have to be accountable.
And not only that, but they have to do
things transparently. You might not be
ripping off the church, but if you are,
for example, the sole signatory for
church cheques it can be suspicious,”
Archdeacon Palacious said.

While a church receives funds from a
variety of sources including through
public fundraising activities and
donors, tithes and offerings usually
account for the bulk of a church's earn-
ings.

Archdeacon Palacious said that for-
mulating an annual budget is a great
place for each church to start when it
comes to financial stewardship. This
budget, he added, should detail specific
dollar estimates for utilities, charitable

office for

offerings, building costs, etc, that the
church anticipates. The budget is
agreed on by the financial board, and
half of the church’s concerns are
already taken care of.

“You ought to have a budget because
it helps to curb some of the abuses that
could occur. Also, it allows you to see
how you performed in the previous
yea.

“For example, if the budget was
$200,000 and you see at the end that
you spent $250,000, and the extra
$50,000 is placed in ‘miscellaneous’, it
raises some concerns,” Archdeacon
Palacious explained.

Having a ‘miscellaneous’ category in
the church’s budget can be a trap for
even the well-meaning pastor or leader.
For this reason, Archdeacon Palacious
recommends that pastors place each
cost in a specific category - and not sim-
ply stick it into ‘miscellaneous’.

“Say the church allocates money for
charitable donations. The pastor ought
to be accountable there too. You don’t
just don’t say, oh Mary needs rent
money and take $800 without making a
notation. That’s where people get into
problems. Then the books can’t be
properly audited because there is no
documentation,” he noted.

But how many churches have profes-
sional audits?

Though he has never been involved
with helping a church manage its
finances, Owen Bethel, president of
Montaque Corporate Partners in
Centreville (a financial consultancy
firm), suspects that most churches have
their own members who do the finan-

cial advising.
Mr Bethel believes that it is an excel-
lent idea for churches - regardless of

size - to have an independent audit that .

will deal with the issues of accountabil-
ity, not only to parishioners, but will
help to maintain the church’s credibili-
ty in the eyes of external donors who
wish to give funds.

While smaller churches may feel that
securing independent auditing services
is beyond their financial reach, Mr
Bethel said that they need only shop
around for an auditor who is willing to

work with them. They may be surprised .

to find that auditors are flexible.
“There are always ways for a church
to succeed here. To a degree, a church
is considered a charitable organisation,
so it isn’t always that brokers are look-
ing at remuneration; it could be done

pro bono or the audit can simply be

done on the basis of what the returns
are on the investments that are given to
[the auditor] to manage. So payments
can be given to him out of the proceeds
of those investments,” Mr Bethel said.

For charitable organisations like a
church, however, Mr Bethel advises
that you find an investment advisor
who will be compensated on a perform-
ance basis, not a consultancy fee.

“This way, the advisor will be obli-
gated to prove themselves before any
payment is made. Finding a financial
advisor, as with most things, you have
to shop around and find out what fits
best and who is prepared to take on
your services to fit your budget,” he
added.

When it comes to money matters in
any church, Mr Bethel believes that it is
“literally imperative” that the pastors
not have the only say as to how the
church funds are used. For example, it
is widely accepted that when withdraw-

ing funds from the church the pastor
cannot be the only signature. The
church, he said, is perceived not to be
the domain of one man - particularly
when it comes to the financial

resources and assets of the church. ;

“One road to avoid is to create a
committee of members chosen because
they don’t ask questions.

“You need a committee that truly is
independent in thought and can ask the
right questions and demand the neces-
sary answers because at the end of the
day they should all be held accountable
for the use or misuse of. the church’s
funds,” Mr Bethel suggests.

For Archdeacon Palacious, it boils
down to preserving the integrity of the
church - which may in fact be lost in the
public’s eye. A growing number of crit-
ics, within and outside of the church,
believe that churches have become
nothing more than big businesses led
by misers rather than ministers.

In fairness to some pastors though,
Archdeacon Palacious pointed out,
many of them have either started these
churches or currently fund these
churches with their own money and
resources derived from jobs that they

-hold (or held) in the secular world.

“They use their own money to lend
and give to the church. That’s why
some of them believe that they own the
church and can do whatever they want
with the funds... “But the church is
God’s church, and the people’s church,”
he added.

- Pastors should be aware that putting
systems in place for proper fund han-
dling is by no means a reflection of any
guilt on their part. It is, instead, a
means of maintaining the reputation of
the pastor and leaders, and a way to
remove unnecessary suspicion of finan-
cial mismanagement and mistrust.

Improvement
in BGCSE
examination
results

MByLLOYDALLEN

THERE has been a minor
improvement in the country’s
national grade average of stu-
dents sitting the Bahamas Gen-
eral Certificate of Secondary
Education (BGCSE) examina-
tions, as the average rose from
last year’s “D’ to a ‘D+’, Minis-
ter of Education Carl Bethel said
yesterday.

Mr Bethel announced yester-
day that the 2008 national average
for both the Bahamas Junior Cer-
tificate (BJC) and the BGCSE
examinations have risen.

According to Minister Bethel,
“In expressing pleasure at the
improvements in student achieve-
ment this year over the last year,
particularly in the BJC, but also in
the BGCSE, it must be acknowl;
edged that we are not yet at the
level that we need and earnestly
desire to attain.”

Also commenting on the
results was Philip Simon, Execu-
tive Director at The Chamber of
Commerce. Simon says, “An
upward trend is good news.”
However he adds, “Education
remains one of the top priorities
and business issues for the nation.
The better educated the poten-
tial work force, the better we are
to compete competetively.”

the Ministry of Education, Mr

SENIOR members of a
political -party
shocked that one of their
colleagues was spotted out-
side a noted local brothel
by police officers last week.

While it was noted that
the party has endured some
degree of sexual scandal in
the past, party supporters
were noticeably taken-
aback as word spread

wildfire yesterday.
According to well-placed
party sources, the parlia-
mentarian was said to have
leadership aspirations —
despite his noticeable lack
of charisma and perceived
drive for the job.
However, as sources indi-
cate, this latest travesty has
undoubtedly scuttled any
future political dreams the

parliamentarian might have

had.

“He is finished,” said one
source. “Where can he go
in the party now? Whenev-
er he opens his mouth they
will say, ‘is this the guy
who got caught in front of
the whore house?’ Come

‘on, he is finished.”

Another political contact
added, that “there is no
coming back from this.

“Tt seems as if these guys
can’t help from getting
themselves into trouble. If
anything, this clears the
way for anyone else who
one day wants to lead this
party,” he said.

Man ‘shot by
_ police’ was —
ym ey: a tT

@ By CAPUCINE DAYEN






THE 22-year-old man who
was reportedly shot by police
in Ridgeland Park on Sunday
was out on bail after being
charged with two murders,
police told The Tribune yes-
terday. ,

The 22-year-old man was
shot in the leg after he alleged-
ly engaged in a shoot-out with
police.

Police on Sunday arrested
one man and shot the 22-year-
old, who was accused of car-
rying handguns in Nassau.

The shooting took place at
around 4pm after concerned
residents reported seeing a
man carrying a gun in Ridge-
land Park, Independence Dri-
ve.

Police officers, who quickly
arrived at the scene, claim a
man pointed a .357 handgun
containing six rounds of
ammunition in their direction
before they fired at him sev-
eral times, shooting him in the
Ieg.

The 22-year-old man was
taken to Princess Margaret
Hospital where he is in stable
condition. The case is under
investigation.

No national party convention for FNM

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

THE Free National Movement
will not have a national party con-
vention this year, party chairman
Johnley Ferguson confirmed yes-
terday.

The governing party has not
had a national convention since

2005, when Hubert Ingraham was
again elected to lead the party.

The FNM will, however, have

“a function” later on in the year,
said Mr Ferguson. The details of
this event will be made public as
soon as it is organised.

When asked if the FNM was
planning a national convention
for next year, the party chairman
did not wish to speculate on this

possibility. When a party is in
government, he explained, con-
ventions are not “as frequent” as
they would be when the party is
in opposition.

Mr Ferguson said that party
members have not been upset
that there hasn’t been a conven-
tion since 2005. The party still has
its monthly meetings, he said.

to the end of Tommy Turnquest’s
term as leader of the party. Mr
Ingraham, who initially said that
he would not enter the race, did
so to the surprise of Mr Turn-
quest, and beat him convincingly
to regain control of the party.

Mr Ingraham received 234 out
of the 373 votes in the race, com-
pared to 99 votes for Mr Turn-
quest and 40 votes for Dion
Foulkes.

Brent Symonette beat Carl
Bethel and Sidney Collie to
become deputy leader of the
FNM. He received 168 votes,
while Mr Bethel only secured 124,
and Mr Collie 79.

Desmond Bannister beat out
Loretta Butler-Turner to win the
party chairmanship. He received
214 votes and she won 155. Mr
Bannister stepped down from the

position after he was elected to
the House of Assembly and
appointed to the Cabinet follow-
ing the FNM’s 2007 electoral vic-
tory. Mr Ferguson took over from
him.

The PLP had its first conven-
tion since 2005 last February
when it elected the country’s first
female party chairman, Glenys
Hanna-Martin.

Cynthia Pratt also announced
then to the country that she will
not run again for the St
Cecilia seat which she has won
on three consecutive occasions
since 1997.

Leadership questions are still
an issue in the opposition party,
however, despite the unopposed
re-cleciton of Mrs Pratt to the
deputy leader post and Perry
Christie to that of party leader.

Claim that BPSU president made
‘last-ditch effort to swing polls’

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

WITH the Bahamas Public Ser-
vice Union (BPSU) elections
looming, some of those opposing
current president John Pinder
claim he has made a “last-ditch
effort to swing” the September
polls by belatedly announcing
major upgrades to the BPSU hall
site.

The plans were announced at a
July ceremony to rename the hall
after PLP stalwart Clement T May-
nard — a move which itself was

‘denounced as a “smokescreen”

tactic on the part on Mr Pinder to
hide his “love affair” with the
FNM, which is alleged to be com-
promising his ability to serve the
membership.

Taking the tone of their cam-
paign up a notch, candidates
Michael Stubbs, Sloane Smith,

Derrick Ferguson and Rudolph -

Stubbs said: “We feel and our
members continue to express that
our president is basically in bed
with the government. This is evi-
dent by his deafening silence on
outstanding issues concerning our
members.”

They added: “The fact that he
has secured architects drawing of
the new BPSU hall less than two
months before elections is seen by
us and our members at Ministry
of Works as just another political

ploy.” .
Mr Stubbs, Mr Smith and Mr
Ferguson announced their inten-
tions in early July to run for Presi-

dent, Vice President and Secre-

tary-General of the country’s sec-
ond largest union.

Rudolph Stubbs joined
the group — who have dubbed
themselves the “Eagle Team” —
shortly afterwards, and also
will be running for Vice
President.

Their platform calls for greater
transparency, consultation and fis-
cal prudence in union business,
and they aim to fix the union’s mal-
functioning medical plan which is
allegedly not accepted at Doctor’s

Hospital and by numerous private:



Sh YoubR NWEALTRE LAS





A SUBSIDIARY OF

doctors in light of financial prob-
lems.

Mr Smith told The Tribune it is
irresponsible of Mr Pinder to have
announced that a new BPSU hall
will be built at significant cost to
the union while the member’s
medical plan has not been proper-
ly underwritten.

“It is amazing that a president
should come at this time with that,”
said Mr Smith.

“Why would we invest millions
in this and not try to secure the
people’s medical fund first?”

The team-is also upset about an
alleged lack of consultation on the
part of the incumbent president
about the renovation proposals.

Project

“Whom did he consult and did
he consult our members on the
largest possible scale? He must not
forget we are the ones who have to
pay for this project so we should
have been made aware of this from
at least three years ago.”

Mr Pinder said in July that ren-
ovations would focus on turning
the site into a commercial-type
property which will include prop-
erty rentals, “a 24-hour day care
centre, a wellness centre, a state-of
the-art training centre, a much larg-

er and improved meeting hall, and
will house the administration of
the union and the medical plan.”

Construction, he said, would
begin within a few months, and
costs are projected to reach $4.5
million.

He attributed the decision to
name the hall in Mr Maynard’s
honour4o his commitment to the
development and education of
public workers, and the fact that he
initially purchased the property
where the building now stands.

According to its website, the
BPSU represents around 5,000
public: service workers, although
the Eagle Team claim member-
ship has fallen as a result of dis-
gruntlement with Mr Pinder’s lead-
ership.

Among those represented are
employees located throughout gov-
ernment ministries, corporations
and boards.

The opposing group again
stressed their own independence
from “political alliance with or
commitment to any political party”
yesterday.

This follows an earlier rebuttal

in the wake of claims by Mr Pinder
that he was “hearing that the oppo-
sition is helping to finance some
of his opponents” campaigns. A
message left for Mr Pinder was not
returned yesterday.

US also has its ballot paper problems

SAN DIEGO (AP) — Come November,
more Americans might cast their kallots on
paper than in any other election in U.S. histo-
ry.

That wasn’t supposed to happen. If every-
thing had gone according to the government’s
$3 billion plan to upgrade voting technology
after the hanging-chad fias¢o in Florida in 2000,
that sentence would read “electronic machines”
instead of paper.

Instead, thousands of touchscreen devices
are collecting dust in warehouses from Cali-
fornia to Florida, where officials worried about
hackers and fed up with technical glitches have
replaced the equipment with scanners that will
read paper ballots.

An Associated Press Election Research sur-
vey has found that 57:-per cent of the United
States’ registered voters live in counties that will
be relying on paper ballots this fall.

The number of registered voters in jurisdic-
tions that will rely mainly on electronic voting
machines has fallen from a high of 44 per cent

. during the 2006 mid-term elections to 36 per
cent. Much of the rest of the electorate consists
of voters in New York state, who will be using
old-fashioned pull-lever machines.

In fact, because of growth in the electorate
over the past decade, expansion of absentee
voting rules, and expectations of high turnout
for the contest between Barack Obama and
John McCain, some experts are predicting a
record number of Americans will cast ballots on
paper this year.

“More people will be using computer-read
paper ballots than at any other time in the
nation’s history,” said Kimball Brace, head of
Election Data Services, a consulting firm. “As
you get more registered voters and more peo-
ple in the pool, it exacerbates this bigger issues
of paper.”

In 2000, about 97 million registered voters
lived in counties that relied on some form of
paper ballot, Brace said. That figure is expect-
ed to top 100 million this fall, according to the
AP data.

The return to paper creates extra stress on an
already-strapped election system. Cash-poor
counties will have to spend tens of millions of
dollars printing ballots. Voters, many of them
first-timers, may wind up confused by the bal-
lot formats and frustrated by long lines of peo-
ple waiting to use the scanners. And counting
all the paper could hold up the results of the
election.

“After 2000, there was a widespread revul-
sion about paper — everyone had the mental
image of the guy cross-eyed looking at the
punch-card ballot,” said Doug Chapin, director
of the watchdog organization Electionline. “But
there’s no silver bullet. You’re trading one set.
of problems for another.”

All states but Idaho.have junked the punch-
card ballots that caused so much trouble in
Florida. But many plan to use paper ballots
that require voters to fill in ovals with a pen.
The ballots are then read by digital scanners.

Unlike touchscréens, paper can’t malfunc-
tion or be hacked into. But it has to be printed,

shipped and securely stored before and after
Election Day. Counties already paying to ware-
house electronic machines will have to buy
reams of card stock, print extras in multiple
languages, pay for delivery and eventually
destroy the unused ballots.

In counties. that are on their third system in
three presidential contests, officials are retrain-
ing workers in how to use the equipment and
demonstrate it: to voters. Broward County, Fla.,
which was caught in the punch-card maelstrom
in 2000, has produced guides showing voters
how to feed their paper ballots into the scan-
ners.

Other counties making the switch, including
some of Califiornia’s largest, are planning to
collect ballots at polling places and pay workers
overtime to fee:d them into industrial-size scan-
ners at central offices.

None of that: is likely to prevent voters from
making other s\orts of mistakes, such as filling in
the wrong ova] or using the wrong colour pen.

“A lot of officials are in damage-control
mode because they’re going to try to limit the
problems of switching to paper,” said Mike
Alvarez, an exert in voting technology at Cal-
tech in Pasadena. “You will have ballots not
showing up, be:ing printed wrong, the litany of
mistakes voters make with these ballots, and
then there’s incredible pressure in a crowded
polling place for people who are trying to make
their decision.” ;

As Brace put it: “Paper is traditionally the
device that the jpublic is really good at screwing
up.”

In 2000, about 61 per cent of registered vot-
ers lived in counties that relied on some form of
paper ballot, whether punch-cards or fill-in-
the-oval forms, «according to Election Data Sys-
tems. Only 13 per cent of voters lived in coun-
ties that used touchscreens or other e-voting
devices; the rest used pull-lever machines.

With fewer thzin 100 days until November 4,

the first concern for many election officials is

making sure they will be able to get all their bal-
lots printed between the time the national,
state and local silates have been selected and
Election Day.

California, the nation’s biggest electoral
prize, with more than 16 million people regis-
tered to vote, abruptly outlawed most elec-
tronic machines liast summer, creating a poten-
tial crunch in the highly specialized ballot-print-
ing industry. San Diego contracted with a
Washington state company after local busi-
nesses said they couldn’t produce the 3.5 million
extra ballots in the two-month window.

Many paper ballots may wind up in the
shredder.

Last week, Ohio’s secretary of state ordered
all 53 counties using electronic machines to
print paper ballots to accommodate voters in
November who oj9t out of e-voting. A similar
order during the primary resulted in the pulp-
ing of more than a million unused ballots after
only 14,484 voters: asked for them.

Legislation to
protect beaches,
coastlines, reefs

and wetlands

EDITOR, The Tribune.

PLEASE publish this open
letter to Prime Minister Hubert
Ingraham requesting legislation
to protect Bahamian beaches,
coastlines, reefs and wetlands.

The Rt Hon Hubert A Ingra-
ham, MP

Prime Minister and Minister
of Finance

Office of the Prime Minister

Nassau, The Bahamas

Dear Mr Ingraham:

Over the years, the Bahamian
Government has stated that
coastal ecosystems, including
wetlands, beaches and coral reefs,
are among the country’s most
valuable assets.

The Government demon-
strated its commitment to pro-
tecting these assets by ratifying
the Convention on Biological
Diversity, the Ramsar Conven-
tion and by passing the Conser-
vation and Protection of
the Physical Landscape Act
1997,

However, in spite of interna-
tional agreements, national leg-
islation and frequently stated
proclamations, the Bahamian
Government continues to allow
developers to undertake projects
that destroy beaches, coastlines
and, in some cases, even entire
islands and reef systems. *

The Bahamas First State of
the Environment Report 2005
(GEO Bahamas 2005) reconfirms
this position when it states:

Varying degrees of erosion
can be observed on many of the
beaches in The Bahamas. The
major causes are construction on
the sand dunes, removal of sand
dunes for development and
buiiding in the active beach zone,
inappropriately siting structures
on the coastline in the active
beach zone, and ill-planned
coastal development."

In fact, over the past 20 years,
much of the most permanent
damage to beaches and coastlines
has resulted from development
on or too close to the shoreline.

In keeping with The Bahamas’
obligations and commitments, in
principle and in law, and in the
best interests of preserving the
natural assets of The Bahamas
for future generations, I urge the
Government of The Bahamas to:

e Issue a public statement con-
firming that it supports the pro-
tection of Bahamian beaches and
coastlines;

e Stop immediately the con-
struction of channels, canals
and/or construction on or
through beaches;

e Enact appropriate legislation
to establish minimum setbacks
for construction near the coasts

BEC bills and
fuel surcharge

EDITOR, The Tribune.

August 4, 2008

BEC bills and fuel surcharge are on the lips of most people
today more than the sip-sip of that personality or another as
certainly we cannot continue to be forced to pay these prices for
such a basic commodity.

In Budget 2008-09 it was announced that BEC will no longer,
for two years, pay any Custom Duty or Stamp Tax on their fuel
— Bunker C and Diesel — it might be too early to see whether
this will have positive effect but certainly our last bills indicated
that even with a reduced consumption of units your bill more than
doubled.

If the truth was told during the Budget Debate surely it should
have been told that actually Government does not pay any elec-
tricity bill, per se, as they offset their bill against what BEC’s liability
to Customs Duty and Stamp Tax is.

Minister of State responsible for Utilities indicates that BEC has
a serious cash-flow problem — I can understand that if Govern-
ment has the luxury of not actually paying their bills and unless
they are now paying them, how can BEC have any cash as the fuel
cost even without Duty, etc, have gone up substantially.

Can the Minister of State confirm that BEC is now being paid
for utilities used by Government and its agencies and how much
is their monthly billings?

It is total madness, I suggest Editor, that the Ministry of
Finance cannot perceive and understand by leaving the Duty
on Diesel, this is having an enormous negative impact on the econ-
omy — why increase jitney fares which will hurt hundreds of those
in the lower economic group whilst a simple adjustment of the
Duty will resolve what the Jitney operators need?

Gas Station operators — guys you have to be kidding if you
really mean what you are saying — your margins have not been
changed so what you made at $3.00 a gallon is the same today,
however we appreciate possibly your costs for operating have
increased, as BEC has gone up so much and your pumps run on
electricity.

EPA and its effect
on the Bahamas

EDITOR,
The Tribune.

Can someone tell me how many manufacturers in Europe will stop
selling product to The Bahamas or how many investors will stop
investing here if we do not sign on to the EPA?

Conversely, with the EU threatening to add an 8 per cent import duty ,
on crawfish imports from The Bahamas if we don't sign on, will this pre-
vent Bahamian crawfish exporters from selling to Europe, or will they
simply discount their price or find other buyers?

These actions of buyers and sellers are better known as the free mar-
ket. They transact business every day now without government involve-
ment.

Outside of government mechanisms already in place, like prevention
of fraud and misrepresentation between buyers and sellers, why do we
need an EPA to complicate the issue?

Anger as generator ¢

blocks entrance to
prime tourist spot

CAB-DRIVERS were furious
yesterday after a generator “the
size of a house” was left blocking
the entrance to one of Nassau’s
prime tourist spots.

The huge box-like contraption
and its trailer stopped taxis gain-
ing access to Fort Charlotte,
where visitors get an insight into
18th century Nassau military life.

“The generator was apparent-
ly used at a weekend event and
was just left there,” said Robert
Johnson, known to cab-driving
colleagues as “The Reconciler”.

But a supervisor at the Antiq-
uities and Monuments Corpora-
tion yesterday said Mr Johnson’s
complaints were unreasonable
as the generator only blocked
access for around five hours
between Sam and 10am on Tues-
day.

And he suggested that, before
complaining, people like Mr
Johnson should look at the big-
ger picture.

The supervisor said events like
the one over the weekend were
necessary for funding the upkeep
of the fort.

“Antiquities and Monuments
is not one of the major govern-
ment corporations, so you can
imagine our budget is substan-
tially smaller. The generator was
a part of a function that we had
rented the grounds out for over
the weekend - it ended at five in
the morning,” said the official.

He said that within 20 minutes
of a complaint reaching the cor-
poration about the generator still

being in place, the equipment
was being unwired, and moved.

“It is my fault that no ‘detour’
sign was put in place,” he admit-
ted, adding that Mr Johnson had
blown the situation out of pro-
portion.

“It’s not something that hap-
pens every day.”

But the taxi-driver was
adamant the affair was “just
slackness on the part of some-
body.”

“The generator was left in the
moat where cab-drivers get
access to the fort entrance. This
was an impediment to tourism.
Passengers were complaining
and wondering why anyone
would do that.”

Mr Johnson and other drivers
were incensed that a major
tourist spot should be obstructed
at a time when business is down.

“It is the ‘don’t care’ attitude
that’s so annoying,” he told The

Tribune, “Tourism is down and
most cab-drivers are hurting.

At a time when Bahamians
were struggling for business, it
was unacceptable that the, fort

“Business is getting so tight

in downtown Nassau in the hope
of getting an early tour.

Diver almost killed

THE TRIBUNE





by a speedboat

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

FREEPORT - A diver was almost run
over and killed by a speedboat at Taino
Beach during the Emancipation Day holi-
day, a senior police official reported on
Tuesday.

Christopher Pratt, 42, was out on a rubber
raft about 100 yards from the shore when
the incident occurred at around 6.45pm.

He was able to jump off the raft, barely
escaping serious injury and possible death.

Chief Superintendent Basil Rahming said
that Mr Pratt, a manager at the Grand

Bahama Shipyard, was using his rubber
raft for diving when he saw the speedboat
heading directly towards him at full
throttle.

“He just managed to dive overboard and
barely get out of the way before the boat
crashed into the raft and went hurling over
it,” said Mr Rahming.

He said Mr Pratt escaped unhurt, how-
ever, the raft was badly damaged.

Investigations continue.

Police are also investigating a traffic acci-
dent which occurred on the August Monday
holiday.

A 36-year-old man walked away with
only minor injuries after his vehicle over-

turned on the West End Highway on Mon-
day. ;

According to police, George Duncombe
was driving his Nissan Altima along the
highway around 1.40am on Monday when
he lost control of the vehicle in the vicinity
of Bahama Beach.

Chief Supt Basil Rahming said Mr Dun-
combe was allegedly speeding and failed
to properly negotiate a curve. The vehicle
skidded off the road and overturned sever-
al times before coming to rest several hun-
dred feet in the bushes.

Mr Duncombe sustained only minor lac-
erations to his neck and refused medical
attention.

HERE are petrole-

um deposits being
exploited off the northern
coast of Cuba. There are
petroleum deposits off the
Florida coast.

It therefore seems that it is
only a matter of time before
petroleum will be found
below the waters of The
Bahamas.

In fact it is surprising that

ever franchise is sold with the

bours.

“SEARS ROAD
Safe, tightknit, a community
that makes us feel proud

@ By CAPUCINE DAYEN



UST a few feet away from

the hustle and bustle of
downtown Nassau, members of
tne Sears Road community still
enjoy a bit of quiet.

Elva and Padderson Sweeting
have lived in the same old colo-
nial home on Sears Road for the
past 42 years.

The couple told The Tribune
yesterday that they feel safe in
the area and are proud of the
tight-knit community which exists
in their neighbourhood. ;

A small group of the area’s
residents work together to make
the small park that they all share
as lively as possible.

Twice a month, the whole
neighbourhood comes together
in the park to share their stories
over some hot-dogs and sodas.

On Christmas and Columbus
Day, the Sweetings and their
neighbours manage to get almost
300 people together to celebrate
the holidays.

Gatherings and functions which
take place throughout year in the
neighbourhood allow the com-
munity to raise funds to maintain
the park they all have grown to
cherish.

However, not everything is
perfect for the Sweetings and
their neighbours.

Traffic has had a damaging
effect on the small neighbour-
hood.

There is not much traffic in the
morning, but in the afternoon
people coming off the Paradise
Island Bridge cross over Shirley
Street and then drive through
Sears Road, the Sweetings said.

The jitney buses also use the
road as a short-cut.

The noise the vehicles produce,
the Sweetings said, is very irritat- §
ing for the community, which is
mostly made up of retirees.

The Sweeting’s neighbour
Eugene Higgs moved from Har-
bour Island to the Sears Road
community 25 years ago.

He has kept his home authentic
and appreciates the fact that he
can count on his neighbours for
assistance.

Like the Sweetings, Mr Higgs
said that traffic in the area has
become a nuisance.

“The traffic has changed dras-
tically,” he said.

When he first moved to the
area there was hardly any traffic
at all. Even though the traffic has
more than doubled in the last
couple of years, Mr Higgs said
that the government has done
nothing to minimise the negative
impact on the residents.

Scotiabank reaches out
to inner-city children

INNER-CITY children were
inspired to participate in after
school activities such as basket-
ball and were given new school
bags during this year’s annual
Southern Recreational Grounds
Summer Youth Camp.

Now into it’s 16th consecutive
year, the camp is spearheaded
by Perry Pratt and a group of
former outstanding athletes from
the area who are committed to
giving back to the community
that once helped to shape them
as young boys.

Among the group, Kingsley
“Boy” Moxey, Courtney “Old
Gal” Strachan, Benny Cooper
as well as others who grew up
around the “government
grounds” basketball courts.

During the summer camp,
which is sponsored by Scotia-
bank Bahamas, sessions were
held Monday through Friday
with complete basic fundamental
drills and pep talks about the
game, friendship and the lessons
of life.

“This was the kind of stuff
that got my attention and
attracted Scotiabank to the
group,” said Michael Munnings,
Scotiabank’s senior manager of
marketing and public relations.

“What Perry Pratt and his fel-
low instructors have been doing
for the past many years for the
inner-city kids is really what our
bank’s social outreach pro-
gramme, called the ‘Bright
Futures Programme’, is all
about.

“We make it our business to
find outstanding services like
this worthwhile summer camp
to partner with and assist those
in our communities who really
need the help,” he said.

Mr Pratt, now in his early for-
ties, said he was inspired to start
the camp 16 years ago when he
got a “burning desire” to do
something for the many young
people who were just “hanging
around” with nothing to do.

“I prayed about it and then
asked myself what could I do to
make a difference. Understand-
ing my limitations, I knew that I
liked basketball and really want-
ed to help the kids, so why not
teach them the little I knew
about the game, and here I am
16 years later still at it,” he said.

“My group of instructors who
do this year in and year out, do it
forthe love of the game and to

make a difference in our com-
munity. This is our way of trying
to stop crime and better the
mindset of our young people.
These are good kids, but they
need nurturing and love. They
need discipline and a helping
hand, that is why I am thankful
and most appreciative that Sco-
tiabank has taken the time out to
do what they do for the camp,”

Mr Pratt said.
This year, Scotiabank through
it’s Bright Futures Programme,

journeyed to the Southern

Recreational Grounds to inspire
the children there.
Scotiabank then treated the

children to a lunch of pizzas, -

chicken and soft drinks. They
also donated fully loaded school
bags to the children.

can be downloaded at www.blueprintbahamas.com.

Mr Rigby said the booklet is “not political” but
addresses the myriad “vexing” issues successive gov-
ernments lost in “political tribalism” have not been
able to fix.

“I believe that we have to somehow move the
politics out of a national conversation (to) how do we
ensure that we build a country where all Bahamians
can be prosperous. Where our children could be
guaranteed of a sound, quality education. Where we
don’t have to be having these empty discussions (on)
how do we fix our health-care system... How do we go
about protecting our borders?"

“Somehow, no matter which political party is in
office, election after election — we have not been
able to fix these small, vexing problems and in the
mainstream what’s happening in’my view is that the
greatest that we ought to be boasting about in our
country is being lost, because we are being labelled by
this political tribalism that exists.”

The 31-page booklet, “A Blueprint for the Future”,
outlines Mr Rigby’s opinions on educational reform,
the justice system, the role of youth, Bahamian fam-
ilies, social advancement, protecting our democratic
principles and institutions, and other topics.

In chapter one of the report, Mr Rigby argues
that the country is facing an economic crisis due to
poor fiscal planning and lack of vision. He claims
the country’s national economic priority is attracting
foreign investments for tourism developments,

instead of encouraging Bahamian ownership of the
economy.

“Bahamians must be the primary beneficiaries of
a growing economy...A new economic model must be
created which will build on the success already
achieved in the tourism and financial services sector,”
he suggests.

The model should include a 30-year national eco-
nomic development plan that addresses in part
Bahamian entrepreneurs, tourism development, the
establishment of a mayor for the city of Nassau,

tax regime and public sector reform.

Ata press briefing yesterday to launch the book-
let, Mr Rigby said the publication “is not intended to
have all of the answers for our present and future
challenges” but should facilitate talks for a “struc-
tured framework for change.”

not a bank loan, it is a non-recourse loan; it’s
about private investors who made private
investment in it,” he said on Wednesday.

Mr Ginn flew to Grand Bahama to reaffirm
his company’s commitment at West End, where
development of key elements of the projects
are beginning to take shape on the southern
ocean shore properties. ,;

He explained that the loan was made on
about 668 of the 868 lots on three tracts of
land situated on the southern shore proper-
ties.

“Two hundred of those lots are sold and

released and they are in the hands of the own-

ers, so the loan is only on 668, and so that
property has an escrow account. We don’t get
paid back for the escrow, part of the per cent of
the proceeds belong to payoff so... this loan is
going to be fine.

“They (CS) don’t have any cost to finish up
those lots and they get 100 per cent of the pro-
ceeds on those lots, so... they are going to be
fine,” Mr Ginn said.

Mr Ginn said that Credit Suisse approached
Ginn and made the loan offer for private
investors.

He stated that $134 million of the money
was put in a bankruptcy protected escrow
account for the sole purpose of completing the
development in the area. He said $36 million
alone was put in escrow for completion of the
first golf course.

He explained that Ginn’s core property and
all north shore property in Old Bahama Bay,
which represents $200 million worth of invest-
ment, fall outside of the credit. :

the harbour basin outside the facility, hotel,
restaurant, and club houses — all of things it
takes to run that property, and OBB has no
debt on it and all funded by our equity and it
will continue to stay that way,” he said.

Mr Ginn is confident that the Ginn will suc-
ceed in Grand Bahama. He also noted that
two of the three Ginn resorts are completed in
the US.

He said the economy and the housing market
is at an all time low in the US.

“T have been in the business for 40 years and
I have never seen one that got as much pro-
tection for customers that are buying, and much
commitment as our company has put up to
assure that we do what we say we are going to
do.

“Business is business and there are tough
times and the naysayers are going say what
they are gonna say, but at the end of day we are
going to be in the Bahamas for many genera-
tions to come and there is virtually nothing
that I can think now that can stop us from
making that goal become a reality,” he said.

The Ginn project at West End sits on 1,975
acres of property that will consist of 4,400 con-
do and hotel units and 2,800 lots. A 20-storey
tower, mega yacht harbour, casino, and marina,
and two championship golf courses are some of
the key elements of the resort project.

FROM page one

According to reports,
the MP was seated in his
vehicle in the parking lot
of the now infamous
Mayfair Hotel on West
Bay Street around
1.30am.

The MP, whose identity
is being withheld, was
said to be seated in the
front seat with the female
prostitute in the passen-
ger seat when officers
approached the car.

The Jamaican, sources
indicate, got out of the
car as the MP informed
officers that he was there
simply to meet his
“friend”. When asked if
the MP was her friend,
the prostitute is said to
have answered “yes”.

As there was no proof
that the MP was engaged
in any affair with the
prostitute, officers let him
go without incident.

Bahamian men
post nude pictures
on gay social
networking website

FROM page one

The site is an online social
networking site for gay men,
where thousands of men from
around the world create pro-
files of themselves hoping to
meet other men interested in
some sort of relationship.

There is an entire section
dedicated to Bahamians on
the site — as there is for other
countries. Men post pictures
of themselves, often nude,
along with other information
intended to entice potential
viewers to either begin a
friendship or set up a sexual
rendezvous.

Surprisingly, many of the
pictures show the faces of the
men, as the Bahamas is an
extremely homophobic coun-
try, and being identified as a
homosexual can lead to job
loss, ridicule and harassment.

Interesting categories are
used by the men to describe
themselves to potential view-
ers.

Along with traditional infor-
mation such as height, weight
and occupation, the profiles
often state what type of sex is
desired by the man — group or
one-on-one — in addition to
his HIV status.

Genital size and the man’s
preferred sexual position in
the relationship is also a part
of the descriptions.

The site is very similar to
other social networking sites
such. as Facebook and hi5
except that it has many sexu-
ally explicit pictures and it is
specifically geared for gay
men.

Men on the site claim to be
chefs, bankers, businessmen,
nurses and many other pro-
fessions.

“T think that as technology
becomes more widely avail-
able, more and more Bahami-
ans are meeting in virtual
spaces,” said Erin Green, a
local gay, lesbian, bi-sexual

and transgendered (GLBT)
activist yesterday.

The Internet is allowing
Bahamians to experience
globalisation of their “social
lives” said Ms Greene, refer-
ring to the wider phenome-
non of social networking sites
homosexuals participate in a
similar fashion to heterosex-

uals.

Ms Greene said that she
does not believe that these
dating or networking sites are
inherently “unhealthy”
“bad”.

“Any new space for us to
socialise in and interact with
each other is a good thing,”
she said.

The fact that gay people are
barred from, or refuse to enter
traditional real spaces,

she explained, “makes a vir-

tual space even more appeal-
ing.”

Ms Greene, however,
acknowledged that there are
predators on social network-
ing sites who are looking for
illegal sexual experiences.
These include paedophiles
and misguided minors seek-
ing attention and affection.

“This is a vexing problem
for the Bahamas as we are just
really entering the age of com-
puters,” she said, noting that
the country has not yet creat-
ed the necessary infrastruc-
ture to facilitate the safe use of
the Internet.

“So we have a case of
underage boys assuming an
adult persona and initiating
relationships with grown men.
And grown men actively seek-
ing underage and young
boys...on the sites,” she said.

It should not be assumed,
however, that most or many
of the men on the site are sex-
ual deviants.

One man who claims to be
Bahamian said on his profile
that he is merely a “sweet guy
looking for someone who
knows how to treat a real
Bahamian guy.”

said Tribune president Mr
Robert Carron.

“We were determined to

It is read by guests at

Government
plans to invest

@ By KATHRYN

Bahamas Information
Services.

GOVERNMENT is plan-
ning to invest in‘an all-Bahami-

an craft centre to be located.

in the former Bahamas Cus-
toms Department building.
Minister of Education Carl
Bethel said that this centre will
allow Bahamians to have a
market to sell arts and crafts

to tourists.

Addressing the high school
students enrolled in the Min-
istry of Education and RBC
Finco’s summer arts workshop
at the Mall at Marathon, Min-
ister Bethel said that there is ‘“‘a
real market in artistic cre-
ations.” ;

“Artists can make good
money. It’s not only for pret-
ty,” he said.

Hotel Association’s
educator internship
programme all set

IN an effort to expose young
persons to myriad job options in
the tourism sector, this month
over 200 of the nation’s educa-
tors will spend a week in the
industry learning the best way
to prepare young people to take
advantage of those opportuni-
ties.

‘ The experience is part of the
Bahamas Hotel Association’s
fifth Annual Summer Educator
Internship Program, beginning
August 18 in collaboration with
The Ministry of Education and
The Ministry of Tourism and
Aviation.

Public-and private school

_ teachers, principals, counsellors,

and MOE subject specialists
from 31 subject areas and all
grade levels will align with local
business partners to get a hands-
on “snapshot” of the industry.

“We are thrilled to be able
to once again create this oppor-
tunity to strengthen and build
on the relationship we have
with the Ministry of Education
and educators throughout The
Bahamas. While tourism is the

lifeblood of our economy,

teachers are its soul which
touches and influences our
potential employees in pro-
found ways.

“We welcome them into our
world to discover our unique-
ness and amazing array of chal-
lenges and opportunities to
build a world-class destination
of choice for us and our cus-
tomers,” said Beverly Saunders,

a member of the BHA execu-
tive committee and vice-presi-
dent of training for Kerzner




International, and the volunteer
chairperson for BHA’s work-

force development initiatives.

With more than 1,000 classi-

fications of jobs within the

tourism industry in The
Bahamas, the internship pro-
gramme presents a powerful
professional development
opportunity for educators to
enhance their understanding of
the industry and the opportu-
nities it presents to young peo-
ple.

According to programme
organisers, it is stimulating edu-
cators to explore new and inno-
vative teaching strategies to
bring tourism into the class-
room.

“We’re encouraged by the
overwhelming response from
educators this year, from both
the public and private schools,
and from Grand Bahama and
the Family Islands as well,” said
Ms Saunders.

For the first time this year,
the internship programme will
also be held on Grand Bahama
concurrent with the New Prov-
idence programme. Over 45
educators have signed up for
the programme on Grand
Bahama and 155 have regis-
tered from New Providence
and the Family Islands.

Economists: Fed stance may prevail into ‘09

@ By MARTIN CRUTSINGER
AP Economics Writer

WASHINGTON (AP) — For a
second straight meeting, the Federal
Reserve has decided to remain on the
sidelines and leave interest rates
alone. In the opinion of many econo-
mists, that stance may prevail not only
for the rest of this year but well into
2009.

The thinking is that the Fed doesn’t
want to cut interest rates further
because of concerns about inflation.
However, at the same time, the
majority of Fed officials don’t want to
start raising interest rates because the
economy is still hobbled by mounting
job losses, a prolonged housing slump
and a severe credit crisis.

‘The Fed cited both worries about
inflation and weak economic activity
in the statement it released after
Tuesday’s meeting explaining its deci-
sion to leave its target for the federal
funds rate, the interest that banks
charge each other, unchanged at two
per cent.

The Fed may not have moved inter-
est rates on Tuesday but it certainly
moved Wall Street. Stocks, already
soaring, extended their advance, with
the Dow Jones industrial average fin-
ishing the day up 331.42 points, or
2.87 per cent. It was the biggest one-
day gain for the Dow since April 1.

Investors were cheered not only by
relief that the central bank did not
signal that rate hikes were imminent
but also by a continued drop in crude
oil prices, which fell as low as $118 a
barrel during the day and are now
down $28 from levels seen on July
1.

The lower oil prices not only help
motorists when they fill up — gasoline
has fallen as well in recent weeks —
but also help the Fed by relieving
inflation pressures.

In a brief statement explaining
Tuesday’s decision, Fed Chairman
Ben Bernanke and his colleagues said
the central bank is still concerned
about the weak.economy and the dan-
gers posed by inflation.

“Although downside risks to

A good business
plan is based on a
sound strategy.

Bernanke testifies on Capitol Hill...

growth remain, the upside risks to
inflation are also of significant con-
cern to the committee,” the Fed said,
splitting the difference between the
two opposing forces battering the
economy.

Analysts said the bottom line mes-
sage from the statement is that the
Fed doesn’t plan to make any changes
in rates any time soon.

“Unless something really weird
happens, I don’t see the Fed moving
before the November election;” said
David Wyss, chief economist at Stan-
dard & Poor’s in New York.

Many economist: believe that the
overall economy, as measured by the
gross domestic product, will post mod-
erate growth of around two per cent
in the current July-September quar-
ter, helped by consumers continuing
to spend the rebate checks sent to
130 million households. But activity is
expected to plunge significantly in the
final three months of this year and
early in 2009 as the impact of the
rebate checks wears off.

Wyss said he is looking for GDP

to actually shrink in both the fourth
quarter and the first quarter of next
year, fulfilling the standard definition
of a recession as back-to-back quar-
ters of negative GDP.

_ However, Wyss looks for growth
to start rebounding next spring as the
problems related to housing begin to
lessen. It is then that he believes the
Fed will start raising interest rates as
it turns its attention to making sure a
rebounding economy doesn’t ignite
inflation.

The November presidential elec-
tion is another reason many econo-
mists believe the Fed will prefer to
keep rates unchanged at its next two
meetings on September 16 and Octo-
ber 28-29.

“The Fed doesn’t like to be in the
spotlight during the heat of a presi-
dential campaign,” said David Jones,
chief economist at DMJ Advisors. “I
think they will prefer waiting now
until they can get a befter view of
how the economy is unfolding and
see if financial markets become less
fragile.”

Cost cutting, including a five
per cent staff cut between 2006

even as physical media sales
slumped and the company sold

“That’s the future,” he said,

from 48.2 in June. It beat econ-
omists’ prediction of a reading
of 49.0, according to the con-
sensus estimate of Wall Street
economists surveyed by Thom-
son/IFR.

A reading below 50 signals
contraction, while a reading
above 50 indicates growth.

In morning trading, the Dow
Jones industrial average rose
161.53 to 11,445.68. The Nas-
daq composite rose 31.01 to
2,316.57 and the Standard &
Poor’s 500 rose 16.80 to
1,265.81.

The industries that grew
include entertainment, recre-
ation, scientific and technical
services, utilities, hotels and
restaurants.

The survey showed that
prices continued to rise, but at
a slower rate than in June.

In a good sign, companies’
order backlogs grew in July.
New export orders fell, how-
ever.

David Noah, president of
InterMart Inc., an eight-person

pany, said sales are flat and
“it’s taking longer for compa-
nies to pull the trigger on a pur-
chase.”

them,” said Olly Knowles, assis-
tant director of education and
programme participant.

Response from teachers and
educational professionals who
have participated in the shad-
owing programme in 2007 has
shown positive outcomes.

Many felt the experience
assisted them in being better
prepared for the delivery of
career interest and inventory
assessment tools with an
emphasis on helping students
take greater responsibility for
their careers in the hotel and
tourism related industry in the
future.

The private sector is partici-

pating at several levels, con-
ducting workshops following an
opening ceremony on the
changing workplace, and a ‘con-
versation with industry leaders’
on the final day.
’ More than 35 hotels and
tourism-related businesses will
operate as placement and train-
ing sites for interns during the
targeted summer week of field
study in Nassau and Grand
Bahama.

Commenting on the fifth

‘anniversary of the highly suc-

cessful programme, BHA work-
force development manager
Bridget Murray stated: “We are

delighted to be celebrating our
fifth year of internships for our
educators. Having worked with
our educators over the years,
we are assured, from their com-
ments and commitment to the
programme, that they have ben-
efited tremendously from the
exposure. “The programme has
evolved over the years to
include more properties and
allied businesses, as well as
teachers participating in the
one-week immersion. We are
indebted to our host properties
and take this opportunity to
encourage others to join us in
hosting our esteemed educa-
tors!"

PINNACLE from 1B

Neuquen, Argentina. Adjusted
EBITDA was flat at $2.0 mil-
lion for the second ‘quarter of
2008, reflecting inflation and ris-
ing costs,” the company said.
Pinnacle also reported of its
international holdings: “As of
June 30, 2008, the net book val-
ue of the company's casino
related assets was approxi-
mately $3.4 million. For the
three months ended June 30,
2008 and 2007, the adjusted
EBITDA loss was $746,000 and
$452,000 respectively, and for
the six months ended June 30,
2008 and 2007, adjusted EBIT-
DA loss was $1.2 million and
$936,000, respectively. For the
12 months ended December 31,

loss was $1.6 million.”

ship has been very good,” Sab-
rina Ingraham told Tribune
Business.in an interview yes-
terday. “We have women
come in from 13-80 and it is

‘ideal for them because it is

only 30 minutes a day for three
days a week. It is also afford-
able.”

Ms Ingraham said that, like
other businesses, her gym is
experiencing the effects of the
economy, particulary as
Bahamians seek to prioritise
and stretch their money. “We
have seen a slight decline, par-
ticulary in the summer months.
That is understandable though
because people’s routine
changes in the summer, so
gyms all over see a drop. The
kids are out of school, people
are away, So membership to a

gym may be last on the list.”

She added that the business
is also feeling the cost of just
operating. “The cost of every-
thing is going up, just to main-
tain the machines is an added
expense.”

In particular, said Ms Ingra- .
ham, “right now BEC is my
biggest challenge, because of
the high fuel surcharge I have
to run my air conditioning
from 5am to 8pm each day -
that is essential so my bills are
huge.”

The gym focuses on half-
hour training sessions which
allow women to use several
machines to work various parts
of the body and then do
stretches with a trainer.

They also do figure analysis,
weight, height and body fat
measurements.

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.

Olympics come as
investments fall
short in China

@ By TIM PARADIS
AP Business Writer

NEW YORK (AP) — The
Olympics are bringing fresh
attention and money to China
at a time when some investors
might prefer to forget about
it.

Stocks in the country have
fallen sharply since last fall,
offering a painful reminder
that hard times can come to a
nation where “up” once
seemed like the only direction
for the economy and stocks.
The declines are raising ques-
tions about whetlier the much-
heralded economic expansion
-of the world’s most populous
country is simply on hiatus or

in for a more pronounced a

back.

Frederick Jiang, manager of
the Ivy Pacific Opportunities
Fund, contends the downturn
in stocks could benefit savvy
investors.

“T think it’s going to be a
great opportunity to buy Chi-
nese shares because the long-
term growth will be there. Chi-
na is going to grow probably
three times as fast as the. glob-
al average,” he said.

“It’s a very strong valuation
case,” Jiang said of the decline
that has left stocks down more
than 40 per cent and those
shares restricted to Chinese
investors down more than 50
per cent from their highs last
fall.

Even investors in diversified
vehicles like mutual funds have
taken a hit. China region
mutual funds showed a nega-
tive return of 26.7 per cent this
year through the end of July,
according to fund tracker Lip-
per Inc.

Still, long-term investors
have seen hefty returns. China

region funds are showing a
five-year annualized return of
21.7 per cent as of the end of
July and a 10-year annualized
return of 16.8 per cent.

But while the drop in stocks
has meant investors could be
getting a better deal when they
buy, it doesn’t mean the risks
have disappeared.

Jiang blames a scarcity of
resources from oil to raw
materials like iron ore with
squeezing economic growth.
“In the short-term there are a
lot of headwinds.”

He doesn’t think that an

economy running at a stead- |

ier pace rather than a sprint is
a bad thing. The double-digit
growth seen in the past five
years is too much, he contends.
--“J don’t think China should
go back to the 11 to 12 per
cent rate. That’s overheated.”
He contends it should be clos-
er to nine to LO per cent.

A moderate pullback in the
economy could actually bene-
fit longer-term investors, Jiang
contends.

“This slowdown should help
China to sustain growth for the
longer term,” he said. “When
growth ‘slows down the
demand for energy and the
demand for metal will come
down. That may bring down
the inflation.”

Andrew Foster, acting chief
investment officer of Matthews
Asian Funds, also contends
that China has grown too
quickly but is encouraged that
more of its economic expan-
sion in recent years has come
from domestic.demand, not
simply from exports to the US
and other countries. This sig-
nifies an economy that is
maturing, he said.

That’s not to say that the
world’s factory wouldn't be hit

by a weakening global econo-
my.

“A slowdown in the US and
especially a global slowdown
will hit China,” Foster said.

“Growth hasn’t fallen off a
cliff. It’s holding up reasonably
well*but moderating. That’s
true in corporate earnings as
well as the macro economy,”
he said.

While Foster thinks the drop .

in stocks in response to the
cooling economy has been
somewhat overwrought, he
remains concerned about ris-
ing prices because of their
effect on the economy and for
any disruptions they could
bring to economic reforms of
the past decade.

“Every major political tran-
sition in China has had infla-
tion at either the backdrop or
at the forefront,” he said, high-
lighting the importance of
keeping prices in check.

But Foster hopes the gov-
ernment won’t react hastily as
it tries to control inflation.

“Does an increase in the
inflation rate cause govern-
ment officials to clamp down
on the kinds of reforms that
have so benefited China’s
economy?”

Ultimately, though, regard-
less of how bullish investors
might be on the country’s
prospects it’s not wise to invest
too heavily there, Foster
warned. Instead, as with any
investment, a measured
approach is best.

“I do think investors should
have some part of their port-
folio dedicated to these emerg-
ing growth stories in Asia. I
would question whether most
investors are well-served to
have dedicated exposure to a
single country. It’s just too
volatile.”

Bactria

SCOVERED

> Archaeologists uncover ancient city in Afghanistan

CHESHM-E-SHAFA,
Afghanistan

“i CENTURIES-OLD shards
of pottery mingle with spent

ammunition rounds on a wind-

swept mountainside in north-

> ern Afghanistan where French

archaeologists believe they have
_found a vast ancient city.

» For years, villagers have dug
the baked earth on the heights
of Cheshm-e-Shafa for pottery
and coins to sell to antique
smugglers. Tracts of the site that
locals call the “City of Infidels”
look like a battleground, scarred

Ne

by craters.

But now tribesmen dig angu-
lar trenches and preserve fragile
walls, working as laborers on
an excavation atop a promon-
tory. To the north and east lies
an undulating landscape of bar-
ren red-tinted rock that was
once the ancient kingdom of
Bactria; to the south a still-ver-
dant valley that leads to the
famed Buddhist ruins at
Bamiyan.

Roland Besenval, director of
the French Archaeological Del-
egation in Afghanistan,and

leading the excavation, Is san-:

guine about his helpers’ previ-
ous harvesting of the site. “Gen-
erally the old looters make the
best diggers,” he said with a
shrug.

A trip around the northern
province of Balkh is like an
odyssey through the centuries,
spanning the ancient Persian
empire, the conquests of
Alexander the Great and the
arrival of Islam. The French
mission has mapped some 135
sites of archaeological interest
in the region, best known for
the ancient trove found by a
Soviet archaeologist in the

1970s.

The Bactrian Hoard consisted
of exquisite gold jewelry and
ornaments from graves of
wealthy nomads, dated to the
Ist century A.D. It was con-
cealed by its keepers in the
vaults of the presidential palace
in Kabul from the Taliban
regime and finally unlocked
after the militia’s ouster.

The treasure, currently on
exhibition in the United States,
demonstrates the rich culture
that once thrived here, blending
influences from the web of trails
and trading routes known as the
Silk Road, that spread from
Rome and Greece to the Far
East and India.

But deeper historical under-
standing of ancient Bactria has
been stymied by the recent
decades of war and isolation
that severely restricted visits by
archaeologists.

“It’s a huge task because we
are still facing the problem of
looting,” said Besenval, who
first excavated in Afghanistan
36 years ago and speaks the
local language of Dari fluently.

“We know that objects are
going to Pakistan and on to the
international market. It’s very
urgent work. If we don’t do
something now, it will be too
late.”

Looting was rife during the
civil war of the early 1990s when
Afghanistan lurched into law-
lessness. Locals say it subsided
under the Taliban’s hardline
rule, but the Islamists’ funda-
mentalism took its own toll on
Afghanistan’s cultural history.
They destroyed the towering
Buddha statues of Bamiyan
chiseled more than 1,500 years
ago, and smashed hundreds of
statues in the national museum
simply because they portrayed
the human form.

The opening up. of
Afghanistan did little to curb
the treasure hunters. British
author Rory Stewart, who made
an extraordinary solo hike
across the country in 2002,
wrote how poor tribesmen were
systematically pillaging the
remains of a lost ancient city
dating back to 12th century
around the towering minaret of

Jam in western Afghanistan. -

State control is a little more
pervasive in Balkh but still
patchy. The provincial culture
authority says it has just 50
guards to protect historical sites
across an area nearly the size
of New Jersey.

Saleh Mohammad Khaleeq,
a local poet and historian serv-
ing as the chief of the province’s
cultural department, said the
guards ward off looters, but
concedes the only way to safe-
guard Afghanistan’s rich her-
itage is through public educa-
tion.

“People are so poor. They are
just looking for ways to buy
bread. We need to open their
minds as they don’t know the
value of their history. We have
to give them that knowledge
and then they will protect it.”
he said.

Villagers hired as laborers at
Cheshm-e-Shafa recall how they
too used to be among hundreds
of locals who would scavenge
the site they are now paid 230
afghanis (US$4.60) a day to
excavate.

IN THIS PHOTO provided by the Wildlife Conservation Society, a western lowland gorilla silverback is seen among members of a group in the Republic of Congo Thursday,
July 31, 2008. A new census conducted by WCS and the government of the Republic of Congo tallied more than 125,000 western lowland gorillas in the northern part of the
country. Previous estimates from the 1980s placed the entire population of western lowland gorillas, which occur in seven Central African nations, at less than 100,000.

Scientists cheer gorilla

m EDINBURGH, Scotland

CAN there be more lurking
in the mist? Despite a startling
find announced Tuesday that
‘doubled the estimated number
of western lowland gorillas in
central‘Africa, scientists warned
that hundreds of primate species
remain in danger of extinction,
according to the Associated Press.

A census by the Wildlife Con-
servation Society raised the esti-
mate for gorillas in the Congo
jungle from between 50,000 and
100,000 to around 200,000, sub-
stantially changing the picture of
a great ape population thought
devastated by the Ebola virus,
hunting and deforestation.

Warning

While the news was well
received, scientists gathered at
the 22nd International Primato-
logical Society Congress in Edin-
burgh warned against celebrating
too soon.

“Tf verified, the discovery of
these new populations of gorilla
are hugely significant for our
work as conservationists, but we
must not be distracted from the

very real and present danger
these gorillas are in from man
and Ebola,” said John Oates,
emeritus professor of primatol-

ogy at Hunter College in New

York. © 43 a

Oates, said that while the news
was good for the iconic great
apes made famous by Dian Fos-
sey in “Gorillas in the Mist,”
many lesser known primates are
in deepening peril.

Threatened

A report released Tuesday by
the International Union for Con-
servation of Nature and other
groups warned that nearly half
of the world’s 634 species and
subspecies of primates are threat-
ened with extinction due to
human activity.

The figures were particularly
grim in Asia, where more than 70
percent of primates were on the
union’s “Red List” of vulnera-
ble or endangered species.

“There is a danger that we
concentrate on the more famous
species,” Oates said. “What
about the other species that
we’ve identified as in danger?
There are so many that are on

the brink of extinction.”

Among them is the highland
gibbon, which counts just 19
known individuals. The review
warned it will be tough battle to
save that Asian primate from
extinction.

Simon Stuart, with Conserva-
tion International, which pro-
vided data for the review, said
primate populations are shrink-
ing in Asia due to hunting and
habitat destruction — some
linked to the booming biofuel
industry.

“In Malaysia, Sumatra and
Borneo the big problem is
destruction of forests to make

‘way for palm oil and biofuels.

Ironically, with biofuels, some-
thing that is nominally associated
with helping the environment
can have harmful unintentional
consequences,” Stuart said.
Scientists working in the
region described an uphill strug-
gle to save eridangered animals.
Vicky Melfi, from the British-
based Whitley Wildlife Conser-
vation Trust, said the macaque
population had plummeted on
the Indonesian island of Sulawe-
si, where she spent three months

as part of a population count.
“In 1980 the population den-

sity (of macaques) was as much

as 300 individuals per square

kilometer. In 10 years this. had

decreased to between 60°to 20
individuals per square kilome-
ter,” she said.

“Imagine the human popula-

tion of the world reduced to that
of one small town. That’s what
we are talking about here,” Me
added. .

A unique find

Oates, the New York-based
primatologist, said:scientists often
stumble on new species, but he
played down the probability of
finding large new hidden primate
populations such as the one iden-
tified in Congo by the Wildlife
Conservation Society, which is
based at the Bronx Zoo in New
York.

“The habitats in which they
live are largely impenetrabie and
we constantly find new species,”
Oates. said. “Having said that,
this (the western lowland goril-
las) remains a unique find. I
don’t know if we’ll ever find
something on this scale again.”

Too young to

MAARRY

Calls for end to Saudi child marriages
@ RIYADH, Saudi Arabia

AN 11-year-old boy gave out
invitations to his classmates for
a big event his family was plan-
ning this summer — and it was-
n’t his birthday party.

It was his wedding to a 10-
year-old cousin.

Muhammad al-Rashidi’s mar-
riage was eventually put on

hold, his father said, after pres- .

sure from the governor of the
northern province of Hail, who
considered the elementary
school student too young to
malty.

The case is among a recent

spate of marriages involving the

very young reported in the
media and by Saudi human
rights groups. They have been
widely denounced by aetivists,
clerics and others who saysuch

unions ¥ré harmful to the ‘chil °

dren and trivialize the institu-
tion of marriage.

Saudi Arabia is already
rocked by a high divorce rate
that has jumped from 25 per-
cent to 60 percent over the past
20 years, according to Noura al-
Shamlan, head of the research
department at the Center of
University Studies for Girls.

“We are studying this issue
so we can put an end to this
phenomenon,” said Zuhair al-
Harithi, board member of the
Human Rights Commission, a
Saudi government-run rights
group. “These marriages vio-
late international agreements
the kingdom has signed.”

Al-Harithi’s group recently
succeeded in delaying the con-
summation of the marriage of a
10-year-old girl after getting
reports from medical centers in

Hail that she and a man in his
60s had showed up for the
mandatory prenuptial medical
tests.

He said the commission
wrote to the province’s gover-
nor and head of Islamic courts
urging them to stop the mar-
riage.

But there are other marriages
involving children that have
gone ahead.

One involved a 15-year-old
girl whose father, Muhammad
Ali al-Zahrani, a death-row
inmate, married her off to a cell
mate who also was sentenced
to death. The father’s sentence
was carried out July 21, when
he was beheaded for killing
another man.

Pictures of the wedding, held
in the prison in Taif for the
men, appeared in several news-
papers. Media reports said
inmates recited poems and
delivered speeches in the pres-
ence of prison officials. The
teenage bride and other
women, as is the custom here,
held a separate reception out-
side the jail.

The groom, Awad al-Harbi,
and his bride were allowed to
spend two nights together in a
special prison quarters after the
wedding, according to Al-
Watan. Al-Harbi told another
newspaper, Al-Madina, recent-
ly that his wife was pregnant.

There are no laws in Saudi
Arabia defining the minimum
age for marriage. Though a
woman’s consent is legally
required, some. marriage offi-
cials do not seek it. For exam-
ple, a father can marry off a 1-
year-old girl as long as sex is
delayed until she reaches puber-

ty, said one marriage official,
Ahmad al-Muabi.

Known as “ma’thoons,” these
officials have legal authority to
preside over marriage contract
ceremonies. They ask the
groom and the woman’s
guardian if they approve of the
marriage and then give them
the marriage papers to sign.

There are no statistics to
show how many marriages
involving children are per-
formed every year. And it’s also
not clear whether these unions
are on the rise or whether peo-
ple are hearing about them
more now because of the preva-
lence of media outlets and easy
access to the Internet.

But the phenomenon is not

‘new, said Sheik Muhammad al-

Nujaimi, a strong opponent of
the marriages. He and other
clerics, activists and writers have
urged the government to pass
legislation setting the minimum
age for marriage and to resolve
differences among the king-
dom’s religious authorities over
the issue.

“There are different (reli-
gious) opinions regarding the
marriages which is why we need
the government to settle the
issue through legislation,” said
al-Nujaimi.

Such marriages occur not
only in Saudi Arabia. In April,
an 8-year-old Yemeni girl
sought out a judge to file for
divorce from a man nearly four
times her age. Her lawyer said
she was one of thousands of
underaged girls who have been
forced into marriages in Yemen,
an impoverished tribal country
at the southern tip of the Ara-
bian Peninsula.



S Korean firm delivers
commercial dog clones

@ SEOUL, South Korea
BOOGER is back.

An American woman.

received five puppies Tuesday
that were cloned from her
beloved late pitbull, becoming
the inaugural customer of a
South Korean company that says
it is the world’s first successful
commercial canine cloning ser-
vice.

Seoul-based RNL Bio said the
clones of Bernanri McKinney’s
dog Booger were born last week
after being cloned in coopera-
tion with a team of Seoul
National University scientists
who created the world’s first
cloned dog in 2005.

“It’s a miracle!” McKinney
repeatedly shouted Tuesday
when she saw the cloned
Boogers for which she paid
$50,000.

“Yes, I know you! You know
me, too!” McKinney said joyful-
ly, hugging the puppies, which
were sleeping with one of their
two surrogate mothers, both
Korean mixed breed dogs.

The team of scientists working
for RNL Bio is headed by Lee
Byeong-chun, a former col-
league of disgraced scientist
Hwang Woo-suk, who scandal-
ized the international scientific
community when his purported
breakthroughs in cloned stem
cells were revealed as fake in

2005.

Independent tests confirmed
the 2005 dog cloning was gen-
uine, and Lee’s team has since
cloned more than 20 canines.

But RNL Bio said that its
cloning was the first successful
commercial cloning of a canine.

“RNL Bio is commencing its
worldwide services with Booger
as its first successful clone,” the
company said in a statement.

McKinney contacted Lee after
Booger died of cancer in April
2006. She had earlier asked U.S.-
based Genetics Savings and
Clone to clone her dog but the
company shut down due to lack
of demand in late 2006 after only

producing a handful of cloned
cats and failing to produce any
dog clones. |

The Korean scientists brought
the dog’s frozen cells to Seoul
in March and nurtured them
before launching formal cloning
work in late May, according to
RNL Bio.

Lee’s team have identified the
puppies as Booger’s genuine
clones, and his university’s foren-
sic medicine team is currently
conducting reconfirmation tests.

McKinney said she was espe-
cially attached to Booger
because he saved her life when
she was attacked by another dog
three times his size.

UK couple wer
‘strapped

to wings of

2 airplanes

B LONDON

IT WAS Katie and Dar-
ren’s wedding day and they
were in the clouds —
strapped to the top of
biplanes reciting vows |.000
feet above the earth, accord-
ing to the Associated Press,

Katie Hodgson, 23, took
to the skics Tuesday ina full
bridal gown on the top wing
of red-and-white plane oper-
ated by Team Guinot, a
group of stunt pilots. Groom
Darren McWalters, 24, flew
by her side on an identical
plane, while Rev. George

: Bringham — flying ahead of

the couple — married them
over an airborne communi-
cations system.

Sky News. television
footage of the ceremony
showed the bride’s dressed
fluttering wildly in foul
weather as the three shouted
to make themselves heard
over the din of the aircraft.

“Task you therefore, will
you love her, honor and
keep her and be faithful to
her so long as you both shall
live?” Bringham yelled.

“T will!” McWalters yelled
back.

The airplanes sent out
trails of white smoke as the
couple belted out their vows
about 1,000 feet above the
ground. Special microphones
relayed the ceremony to
Rendcomb Airfield near the
English city of Cirencester

: — 90 miles west of London
: — where the wedding guests

were waiting. Wind and rain
eventually cut the flight
short, but the couple said
they had a blast.

Hodgson said that as a girl
she never would have imag-
ined she would wed on the
wing of an airplane.
