Call for alternative model
for Abaco developments

@ By MEGAN REYNOLDS
Tribune Staff Reporter

CONSERVATIONISTS concerned about the damaging envi-
ronmental impact of 14 developments approved for Abaco are
calling on government to consider an alternative model that will
both feed the economy and preserve the island's natural habitat.

Abaco is home to the third largest population and third largest
economy in the country, and therefore pressure is building to pro-
vide jobs for Bahamians in the area.

But as developers push through applications to build second

Judge orders hotel union

of the executive council »

A SUPREME Court judge has ordered that the Bahamas
Hotel Catering and Allied Workers Union pay backpay to mem-
bers of the union’s executive council on or before Friday.

The order by Justice Neville Adderley is the latest development
in a continuing court battle between members of the BHCAWU
executive council and Roy Colebrook, union president; Basil
McKenzie, treasurer, Leo Douglas, secretary general, and Sandra
Ferguson, financial controller. |

On Monday Justice Adderley ordered that the union pay eight
members of the union’s executive council on or before Friday at
4 pm.

The infighting between these two groups is rooted in allegations
brought against Messrs Colebrook, Douglas and McKenzie by
members of the executive council who allege misappropriation of
union funds.

In a previous order, Justice Adderley barred Mr Colebrook
from signing any union cheques or “otherwise disposing of or dis-
sipating the assets of the union.”

Executives, including those who oppose Mr Colebrook, were
at the same time ordered to act in “good faith” with him.

The executive council members, the plaintiffs in, the court
action, allege that they have not been paid their salaries and
allowances in three or four months in some cases.

rices On The Island’

in brief Members of new sroup running for BPSU

‘positions say Pinder ‘needs to step aside’



@ By LLOYD ALLEN



WITH the Bahamas Public Ser-
vice Union set to hold its elections
in September, members of a new
group running for executive posi-
tions say incumbent president John
Pinder “has maximized his poten-
tial” and “needs to step aside and
allow a new breed to take the

‘ helm.”

An email sent to The Tribune on
Monday by Eagle Team member
Michael Stubbs, included numer-
ous concerns purportedly relayed
to the group by members of BPSU.

-Among the estimated 5,000
members in what is the second
largest union in the nation, the
issue of ever increasing dues has
come up time and time again
according to Mr Stubbs.

He claims many members who

work in various ministries and gov-

ernment agencies have decided to

leave because union dues have

rae from $10 back in 2005, to
25.

Construction

The Eagle Team says members
are also disgruntled about the fact
that Mr Pinder has decided to
break ground for the construction
of a new BPSU Hall.

Although according to Mr Pin-
der, the union’s board thinks now
is the best time to begin construc-

tion of the new building, Mr

Stubbs says numerous members
feel the move is untimely.

He said the building should not
be built until the controversy over
the union’s medical plan is

resolved.

Mr Stubbs claimed in his email
that the medical plan is not accept-
ed by Doctors Hospital and is con-
sidered high risk by other private
doctors.

However Mr Pinder has
repeatedly denied that there
are any problems with the
plan.

Objections

The union leader has said that
any objections or disagreements
about the plan are the result of a
lack of understanding about
the issue on the part of its detrac-
tors.

With the union’s elections set to
take place in September, the Eagle
Team members say they are confi-
dent that change will come in the
form of a new executive body.

THE board of the Bahamas
Hotel and Allied Industries
Health and Welfare Benefits
Fund is undertaking an “historic”
health programme which it says
will set-the standard for other
institutions to follow.

The board of trustees says the
programme will be free of charge
to the fund’s 10,000 members.

Hugh Sands, chairman of the
board, launched the “Well on
Your Weigh” programme, to be
facilitated by The Jemi Wellness
Centre, on Friday.

Mr Sands said that while the
Bahamas is considered one of the
most successful small countries in
the world, there is much to be
desired in terms of lifestyle choic-
es that affect overall health.

“Just a few years ago, we
became concerned.that members
of the hotel industry, like many of
their fellow Bahamians, were
falling far short of even the most
modest ideals of wellness.

WEIGHING IN ON HEALTH: Hugh Sails praia Bahamas Hotel and Allied induedtes Health and Welfare Ben-
efits Fund, revealed statistics about the rate of obesity among hotel workers. At his far left is Roy Colebrooke,
trustee and president of the Bahamas Hotel, Catering and Allied Workers Union, in the rear is Louie Dames, direc-
_tor, and to the right is J Barrie Farrington, trustee and president of Bahamas Hotel Employers Association.

“A survey of 2,945 hotel
employees, conducted between
2003-2004, showed that 80 per

cent of this group had a body

mass index greater than 25, which

means that they were overweight, :

42.7 per cent were moderately
obese, and 8.8 per cent were
severely obese.

“Women led the way with
almost 47 per cent of them being
moderately to severely obese as
compared to 33.6 per cent of men
in the same situation,” said Mr
Sands.

The preventable and lifestyle
conditions that Bahamians suffer
from through unhealthy eating
habits and obesity include dia-

- betes, hypertension, high choles-

terol and heart disease.

The Jemi Wellness Programme
is already in progress with partic-
ipating employees.

One of the trustees of the

. board, J Barrie Farrington, stated

that this new programme will not
only benefit participants, but their
families and the entire nation, as

impacted.

“Our idea here is to improve
the quality of life to enable
employees to change their way
of life; in respect of nutrition, exer-
cise, rest and taking care of them-
selves. The health statistics we
have now could be reduced for
the better or substantially elimi-
nated. This is an historic occasion;
it will be a platform for other
organisations to follow because
it is a problem of health that is

persistent in the country. I’m con- ©

vinced that we’re going to save
many lives through this wellness
programme,” said Mr Farrington.
President of Jemi Wellness
Centre, Nurse Janette Isaacs, out-
lined the format of the wellness
programme which includes health
screening, coaching, fitness ses-
sions and health seminars.
There will be individualised
plans for participating employ-
ees; they will have access to satel-

- lite gyms throughout New Provi-

dence including Mystical Fitness,
NatBros and New Providence
Community Centre.

“The employee’s health coach
and personal trainer will contact
them on a weekly basis, will call
them and check to see if they are

_ on point with their goals. Once a
month we are going to re-screen
those persons in the programme;
at that monthly screening we will
have an educational seminar
where employees will be able to
bring their families,” said Nurse
Isaacs.

Nurse Isaacs explained that
there is a sustaining part of the
programme that goes beyond the

Nobel Laureate
warns against
foreign exploitation

NOBEL Laureate Derek
Walcott has warned the
Caribbean region against for-
eign investors who do not facil-
itate or create opportunities for
cultural development.

Speaking at the opening of
the CARIFESTA X Symposia
yesterday, at the Guyana Inter-
national Convention Centre, the
recipient of the 1992 Nobel
Prize for Literature contended
that the Caribbean was being
rapidly exploited under the
guise of development, and
implored CARICOM govern-
ments to strike a balance in an
effort to avoid “prostituting
themselves to foreign investors.”

Mr Walcott asserted that the
region should encourage
investors to put money into the
development of cultural infra-
structure such as museums and
theatres so that the region could
be proud of the legacy it leaves
for its children.

‘... all Iam saying is that
when the investors offer to build
hotels, you need to say, you can
build your hotel but you also
need to build a museum or a
theatre,” he said.

Using his own country as an
example, the Saint Lucian born
poet and playwright condemned
the proposed bridging of his
native island’s twin volcanic
peaks, the Pitons, as a “terrify-
ing obscenity of greed.”

He said although it might be
legal, it would leave a gaping
wound on the Pitons.:

Derek Walcott’s statements
were preceded by a panel pre-
sentation by literary giants Dr
Ian McDonald, Professor David
Dabydeen, Professor Kenneth
Ramchand, Professor Edward
Baugh and Cynthia McLeod, all
of whom spoke on the topic:
Caribbean Culture At the
Crossroads: Seeking the Past,
Living the Present, Exploring
the Future.

Also expressing strong reser-
vations about the relevance and
purpose of the Caribbean Fes-
tival of Arts, Mr Walcott inti-
mated that there was little to
celebrate as many artists were
living in a state of deprivation.
He made an impassioned plea
for stronger support of artists
in the region, particularly in the
form of providing access to
more scholarships for younger
artists

“You are killing our artists
and then celebrating it!” he
exclaimed.

The poet’s statements were
later challenged by Guyana
President Bharrat Jagdeo, him-
self an economist. While
acknowledging that CARICOM
governments needed to sustain
the development of culture,
President Jagdeo argued that it

must be viewed in the context of

the plethora of harsh economic
challenges facing leaders.

The president, who officially
opened the ceremony yester-
day, enumerated the contribu-
tions of artists to the region as

well as the positive impact of

culture in economic develop-
ment.

However he also acknowl-
edged that sustaining those
achievements was a challenge
fox the region especially in the
face of harsh economic realities.

Bah

amas ‘wide open’

for firearm smuggling:

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

THE Bahamas is a “wide
open” country for firearm smug-
gling, police intelligence indicates,
Acting Commissioner of Police
Reginald Ferguson aad yester-
day.

However, Mr Fereison said
that while the police acknowledge
that it is a great challenge to free
the country’s streets of illegal
guns, they do not believe they are
fighting a “losing battle.”

Speaking as a guest on the
Love 97 radio talk show Jones
and Co yesterday, he said that
any type of ammunition and ille-
gal firearm can be found in the
Bahamas, including grenades and
high-powered rifles.

He pointed out, however, that
in the history of the country’s law

enforcement, police never found
a firearm manufacturer or a
gun factory anywhere in the
Bahamas.

When asked if he believed that
Bahamian police were “up to
scratch” in the ongoing fight
against illegal firearms, Acting
Commissioner Ferguson said
there is always room for improve-
ment in anything the police do.

Proactive

He added, however, that the
police had been very proactive in
capturing guns and stopping ille-
gal firearms from entering the
country.

Mr Ferguson said the police’s
intelligence work was not limited
to the Bahamas, but extended to
sources outside of the country as
well.

“We are a part of global net-
works,” :he said.

“We are in co-operation with
different countries in terms of
sharing information and tracking
down firearms.

“But you have to take into con-
sideration that the Bahamas is
a wide open country, (we)
know this from some of the intel-
ligence.

“That’s the facts, that’s what
the intelligence allows us to say,”
he said.

While the police’s intelligence
is greatly aiding police in remov-
ing firearms from the streets, Mr
Ferguson admitted this it not a
“cure-all” forthe problem.

“We are highly vulnerable to
that kind of thing because of our
geographic location and (the
country’s) exposure and connec-
tions (to other countries).

“The Bahamas cannot control

‘All in place’ for new school year

LLOYD ALLEN



WITH public schools set to
reopen Monday, Education
Minister Carl Bethel said all is in
place for the start of the new school

year.

The minister said for the nearly 160
schools throughout the nation, many
i of the major renovation plans have

-. been completed, but there is always

work to be done.

Last week there was a report of van-
dalism at a.new junior high school in
? Freeport, which was to open for this
: school year.
’ Referring to the incident as “an act of md
sabotage,” Mr Bethel said that although
there are some people obviously

opposed to the achievements of the

government and students, it was vital for his min-
istry to continue its effort of improving
the educational experience for Bahamian

students.

According to the minister, other ongoing projects
include additions to various schools and the con-
struction of new schools in communities throughout

the country.

One such school is A F Adderley, which, he said,
will have the addition of 15 classrooms and a new

administration block.

The minister said major works will also continue for

experiencing severe problems with their
sewer systems.

Earlier in the month the minister
announced that, upon completion of T
G Glover school, students from sur-
rounding schools and communities
would be brought in to make up the
enrolment and help reduce over-
crowding. Included in the: recruiting
process would be students from Wood-
cock Primary, Mable Walker and Nao-
mi Blatch.

“The prime minister has anndheed
that, upon the sale of Batelco, whenev-
er that should occur, he had the goal to
see that we begin the process of recon-
stituting a number of the older schools
in the Bahamas...that need to be total-
ly replaced,” said the minister.

Slated for replacement are C C

The Tribune yesterday that although it is fair to say

the school does have continuing repair projects.and
does need to be replaced, as far as the curriculum is
concerned, his school is prepared for reopening Mon-

A FORMER Batelco employ-

convicted on a theft charge in
Supreme Court.

Michelle Lloyd was on trial for
the unauthorised creation of
$9,000 identification numbers for
$20 prepaid phone cards worth
$180,000.

The incident reportedly took
place in October, 2003.

According to evidence pro-

directed to create.

place,” he said.

Mr Ferguson said this was not
an excuse, but just the reality of
the situation.

He added that police do not
feel overwhelmed by the firearms
problem and that his officers dai-
ly rise to the challenge of finding
a solution.

China hosts spectacular Olympics

CONGRATULATIONS a are in order for the
Bahamas’ Olympic team, ‘especially for the
men’s 4x400 relay team, which had Bahamians
cheering lustily for their “boys” as they fought

for second place behind the Americans to bring -

back the Bahamas’ first Olympic'relay medal.
In fact with only two medals, a silver and a
’ bronze, the Bahamas once again— for its third
Olympiad — has retained its first place title as
the country with the most m dals per capita in
the world, while the US wi > most medals —
100 — placed 46th in the pe Apita count. Chi-
na with the most gold medsly was 68th in that
count.
But what mattered even ttiore than medals

was the spirit of the games, a spirit that for 16

days showed that the people of the world can
work together, compete-on friendly terms and
enjoy each others compariy,

In thanking the: athletes as a spectacular
event came to an’ énd, International Olympic
Committee President Jacques Rogge described
them as real role models. “Yu have shown us
the unifying power of sporty” he said: “The
Olympic spirit lives in the: warm embrace of
competitive rivals from nations in conflict. Keep
that spirit alive when you ‘retiirn ponte.

But the greatest praise goes to China, the
host country. The Chineserdisplayed brilliant
imagination, putting on a stufiting show that will
be difficult, if not impossible; for ture Games

to rival. In the words of Presitlent Rogge, they:

were “truly exceptional games,” Through these
Games, he said, “the world learned more about
China, and China’ learhed mote about the
world.”

China was obviously a proud host that found
its best red carpet: to:ptit down to welcome the

world. By opening its doors it displayed its cul-

ture, its discipline; ‘aiid’ the digiity, cleverness
and beauty of its, people: However, what was
most remarkable was how the Chinese cheered
for athletes from other countries and seemed to
take genuine delight:in’ ‘their tritmphs. They
were indeed. magnanimous hosts.

“If you think, of:China 20. years ago,” said
Germany’s deputy foreigri ministry spokesman,
“nothing of the sort would have been possible.
Thousands of journalists were in China, report-
ed about China. I think it.can ‘be said that the
Olympic Games made a Positive: contribution to
the future of China.”

China has received much ctiticism from the
West. We cannot say that it has not been
deserved, but China is changing, it is gradually
opening itself to the world. However, it is doing
so at its own steady pace.

“China is a big country,”
sador to the Bahamas. ‘Hi

fecently. “It’s like a large ship that you have to
turn and manoeuvre carey so that it does
not capsize.”

We could appreciate where he was coming
from when we recalled the fall of the Shah of
Iran, who tried to force reform too quickly on a
country culturally not yet ready for it.

A Newsweek article that asked — What dri-

~ ves China? — concluded that it was “the roots

of a national inferiority complex.” Ifit takes the
impetus of an inferiority complex to drive a
country to excel, then more should acquire such
complexes. China in showing its best face con-
centrated on its history, its beauty, taking man
to the heights of great achievements.

For us the only jarring note in the whole
games was the handover ceremony to Great
Britain, which will host the Games in the next
four years.

“A turn to the bizarre as London handed
Olympic mantle” was the way one reporter
described the arrival of a double- decker Lon-
don bus on centre stage. In our opinion the
whole scene would have been better described
as “depraved.” Next to such spectacular beauty
it symbolised the degradation of western society.

' The Olympic flag was handed by China Pres-
ident Hu Jintao back to Olympic Committee
President Rogge who in turn passed it on to
London Mayor Boris Johnson. Monsieur Rogge
and President Hu Jintao looked elegant as they
strode with dignity down the steps from the’
dais.

They walked erect with coats buttoned. They °
were followed by a lumbering Boris Johnson,
coat flapping open, hands in pockets.

All we can say is that at least on this occasion
he remembered to comb his usually all-over-the-
place shock of blond hair. He looked like an
uncomfortable London yabbo dropped in their
midst.

As for the London bus with humanity, like a
bunch of worms, crawling all over it and a thick-
legged singer, claimed to be the current rage of
London, and an aging guitarist in a rakish out-

fit strumming out “Whole Loota Love” — it.

was like falling from the grandeur of a Mount
Olympus into the pits of Dante’s inferno.
In one sad flash we could sympathise with an

Islamic world that wants to close its doors to the -

crudeness of the West.
We hope that this is not a sad omen of how a

_once great nation — turned sadly into a “Cool

Britannia” — will display its decline and fall in
2012.

For us it was the only embarrassing moment
of the whole games — it let down a glorious flag
that once flew over an empire on whom at one

' time the sun never set.

phone while driving, what is
it that they are doing? Noth-

They are always trying to

traffic; there is no place to go!
They think they can come out
ofa corner quicker than any
oncoming car.

As simple as being on the
highway, it’s like a racetrack,
and they think that everyone
on the highway is trying to
race with them when we’re
minding our own business.

Men drivers are just simply
insane and speed happy.
Though us women might
cause minor accidents by

' putting on makeup or being

on the cell phone, the acci-
dents caused are very minor

only affects us, not resulting
in death either. Yes we might
run over someone’s foot, or
drive our own car into a wall,
but we hardly ever kill or par-
alyze anyone.

What is it that the men.are
doing while driving that they
end up knocking over light
poles, flipping their cars over
four and five times killing the
passenger, overtaking and
causing dangerous collisions.

What is it? All I can say is,
no matter what it is that the
woman may be doing while
driving, we do it as slowly as
possible and/or with caution.
Thus, resulting in very minor

The Bahamas Journal’s editorials
praising Cuba turn my stomach

EDITOR, The Tribune.

The Bahamas’ standard of

living reflects the effect of free ,

trade and a relatively limited
government.

Although | government
keeps expanding, to the detri-
ment of all taxpayers, citizens
here are still far better off than
in many countries in the
region and the world.

However, every now and
then The Bahama Journal edi-
torialises about the virtues of

the Cuban regime. And
_ frankly this turns my stomach.

In their editorial of Satur-

day, August, 16, 2008, they

crow about the fact that they
recently learned that, "A key
United Nations human rights
body on Monday appointed

. as its chairman for the next

three years a Cuban law pro-
fessor who has been a senior
diplomat for the Havana gov-

ernment and a spokesman for .

its foreign ministry."
Throughout the editorial

they try desperately to con-

vey that the way of life in



Cuba was greatly improved by
the so-called Revolution.

If the Revolution was
intended to deprive Cubans
of property rights, the ability
to leave and return to Cuba
at their will, their ability to
vote for the party of their
choice, or freely speak their
mind, Castro and his hench-
men succeeded far beyond
even their wildest dreams.

Further, according to the
babalu blog, there is only one
promise that Castro kept after
his famous march into Havana

on that fateful day of January |

8, 1959.

However, five of the impor-
tant promises he has not et
posted
babalublog.com (http: eet

abalublog.com/archives/00550
Of De es is St
rchives/005506.html> are:

A) “I will lead the country
to economic and cultural

progress without sacrificing

individual freedoms.
B) “There is little room in
Cuba for communist ideas.”

C) Cuban rebels didn’t
preach class war.

D) Promise to restore the
Constitution of 1940

E) The promise. of.free
elections

For a local newspaper to
support the Castro regime in
this manner is shameless.

The "Journal" often prints
derogatory stories about The
Bahamas government, and
they are free to do so.

But if they operated in
Cuba, they would not dare
print any negative things
about the Revolutionary gov-
ernment.

But what am I saying?

The owners of the Bahama
Journal, or anyone else for
that matter, can't own a pri-
vate newspaper or radio sta-
tion in Cuba.

But some facts are just too
inconvenient to mention for
those that support the regime
in Cuba.

‘NO evi

dence’ to suggest third

‘party involved in hanging death

@ By TANEKA THOMPSON
Tribune Staff Reporter
tthompson@tribunemedia.net

THE investigation into the hanging
death of 11-year-old Devante McPhee
is still open but police say there is no
evidence to suggest the boy's injuries
may have been inflicted by a third par-
ty.

Authorities said they are still fol-
lowing "lines of inquiry" into the events
that led to the boy's death.

Police have classified his death as
"accidental" pending the results of an
autopsy.

"The investigation is open and we
have to follow the lines of inquires and
so we haven't found anything at this
stage to suggest that somebody else
might have done it to him.

Authorities following
‘lines of enquiry’



" As it stands now, we haven't found
anything at this stage to suggest that
his injuries were inflicted or caused by
the assistance of some other persons, '
assistant commissioner in charge of
crime Raymond Gibson told The Tri-
bune yesterday.

Mr Gibson made these comments in
response to information reaching The
Tribune that young Devante may have
been playing some sort of "hanging
game" with two other boys when he
died.

Last week, the East Street commu-
nity was left in shock after grandmoth-

er Melina Rolle found Devante's life- -

less body hanging from a post in their
backyard. The young boy had his broth-
er's belt around his neck and a chair
next to his body, according to earlier
reports.

She said she had just returned home
from grocery shopping and had left her
grandson playing in the backyard.

"When I get back from the food
store, (Devante's) mother tell me to

go call him, but I didn't get an answer.
When I came out back here to get the
garbage I saw him hanging there," she
told a Tribune reporter on the scene
as she pointed to. the clothesline post
next to a rusty chair.

Family and friends, who were over-
come: with grief, described Devante as
a "good child" involved in extra-cur-
ricular activities. ,

They do not believe he would have
killed himself.

"It was a freak accident, he was play-
ing. He was always playing by himself
like that, always adventurous," Devan-
te's adopted aunt Debbie Ferguson said
at the family's home on Honeycomb
Street.

A 2008 graduate of Woodcock Pri-
mary School, Devante was due to start
junior high at CC Sweeting next month.

FREEPORT -— A $50-million refur-
bishment project is underway to restore
2.5 million barrels of oil storage capacity
at the former BORCO plant in Freeport,
it was announced yesterday

First Reserve Corporation and Royal
Vopak NV (Vopak) - which acquired all
the shares in the Bahamas Oil Refining
Company International Ltd in April 2008
— provide storage of petroleum products
for major oil clients around the world.

The company now operates as Vopak
Terminal Bahamas, and a new sign has

mer BORCO plant on West Sunrise
Highway. :

T J Huizer, managing director at
Vopak, held a press conference yesterday
to inform the media of its plans in
Freeport.

He announced that the company will
invest well over a quarter of a billion
dollars, which will cover the refurbish-
ment of old tanks and two expansion
projects for the construction of new
tanks. Mr Huizer said that all of the facil-
ity’s existing tank space is being used by
clients. He noted that the site can now
hold 20 million barrels, but that tanks
able to hold an additional five million
barrels are out of service.

“Our clients are crying for more space

BRerey Van ae

Om project to restore oil

and they are relying on Vopak,” he said.
“Our goal is to be one of biggest inde-
pendent third party terminals within a
couple of years.”

Mr Huizer said that refurbishment has
already started with the repair some of
the oil tanks that have remained dor-
mant for 20 years.

“We are spending $50 million to rein-
state about 2.5 million barrels. We have
started that and that will take us well
into 2009,” he said.

According to the executive, Vopak
plans to spend $55 million to increase
storage capacity by additional 2.8 mil-
lion barrels during its Brownfield Expan-
sion Programme.

He said the project will involve the



IULUVAT, AYVUYUS! 20, CUUO, FAUL /

construction of seven new tanks — three
1/2 million barrels and four 330,000 bar-
rels. Mr Huizer’stated that the Green-
field Expansion Programme is more
extensive and will result in an investment
of $250 to $300 million.

He revealed that they are looking to
build an additional 24 to 26 new tanks,
which will have a total capacity of six
million barrels.

“We have a large piece of land which is
part of our lease. That land has basically
been unused for years and we are cur-
rently evaluating to construct a new tank
park in that area — it is under review,” he
said. Mr Huizer said Vopak is a world
leader and works with major oil compa-
nies. They are presently involved with

10 major clients. He pointed out that
Vopak Europe Terminal, which is the
largest independent terminal with 22 mil-
lion barrels storage capacity, is also in
the process. of expansion. Mr Huizer
said that Vopak Terminal Bahamas is
also demolishing and removing the refin-
ery units at BORCO which closed in
1985.

He also noted as terminal storage
capacity grows, the company will have
to look at constructing additional off-
shore jetties. Mr Huizer said that the
company currently employs about 160
workers and is actively seeking additional
Bahamians in key positions.

He noted that the company has
received some 700 applications to date.

the message as he addressed the
graduation ceremony for New
Entry 45 at the HMBS Coral
Harbour base this weekend.

Mr Symonette admonished the
52 marines to render “patriotic
and exemplary service” as they
protect the country’s 100,000
square nautical miles.

“Your accomplishment is built
on the commitment you made,
and which you have kept. It is
built on the demands made of
you, which you have met. It is
built on the sacrifices you made
and the challenges you confront-
ed head on,” he said.

New entry training is an inten-
sive marine recruit training pro-
gramme designed to develop and
improve leadership potential, pro-
fessional skills, academic stan-
dards and physical fitness among
young recruits entering the regu-
lar force. New entry training con-
sists of 16 core subjects conducted
over a period of 16 weeks, accord-
ing to the Defence Force.

Training includes: Defence
Force rules and regulations, mar-
itime law enforcement, coastal
navigation, small arms, survival
at sea, rules of the road (for mar-
itime traffic), parade drills, land
and sea expedition.

The Royal Bahamas Defence
Force mission statement is: “To
become a self-sufficient, multi
mission maritime organisation
with the operational capacity to
respond to threats to national
security, as well as perform
humanitarian tasks inclusive of
maritime search and rescue, dis-
aster relief assistance, and peace-
keeping in co-operation with
regional partners.”

In this vein, Mr Symonette
underscored the importance of
the 28-year-old military agency
to the country’s national security.

“For decades, a persistent illic-
it drug trade and unrelenting flow
of illegal immigration into and
through the country have com-
pounded the country’s national
security problems, challenged law
enforcement on land and sea,
taxed our strength and fortitude
as a nation, and burdened our
national budget and resources,”
Mr Symonette said.

He added that poachers con-
tinue to violate the country’s “ter-
ritorial integrity”, to deplete
marine resources, and to give no
thought to the fisheries manage-
ment and conservation laws and
initiatives.

“Grave new problems are
being packaged with the old,
making our national security
problems at sea and on land
increasingly complex,” he said.
“Tn a country which produces no
guns and which ‘has strict laws
governing the possession of
firearms, the increase in violent
crime using guns, particularly
murder and armed robbery are
undoubtedly (due) to the traffic in
arms.”

golf courses and marinas, some
affecting Crown land and envi-
ronmentally sensitive environ-
ments, scientists at Friends of
the Environment, an Abaco-
based not-for-profit organisa-
tion, are suggesting an alterna-
tive.

The environmental education
organisation established in
Marsh Harbour 20 years ago
facilitates communication
between local people, develop-
ers, and Government, to discuss
the potential impact of plans.

Charlotte Dunn, a marine

biologist and chairwoman of -

Friends' Sustainable Develop-
ment Committee, said: "Our
biggest challenge is to educate
people who don't care about
the environment and will sup-
port any development next to
their community because they
just wantajob.

"We try to tell them that if
the development is downsized,
and the footprint is less, then
they still can have a job and still

‘be able to go out on the boat
_and get conch on the weekend

because it will be more sensi-
tive to the environment."

Eco-friendly resorts are a
growing global trend, Miss
Dunn said, and would provide
more diverse job opportunities
for Bahamians.

She said: "Eco-resorts would
offer jobs in bonefishing, and
to flora and fauna experts. They
would even open up an organic
farm to supply the resort so
people will have to come to the
community to have dinner.

"These places are the oppo-
site’ of a gated community
where the community next to
it is just the workers, and the
people who go there will have

_ more interest in the local people

and their country."
Eco-tourists will pay around
$1,000 a night to stay in a high
quality resort, and expect to
have four staff serving each
room, in addition to wanting

key staff with expert local
knowledge, Miss Dunn said.

"We have the ability to pick
and choose our developments,"
she emphasised.

"We can say these are the
type of people we want to
attract, and we ‘don't have to
sell ourselves out, but with all
these approvals in principle I
can't imagine they have turned
anything down."

Approved developments
include the $160 million trans-
formation of Snake Cay, part
of a vast creek system on the
east coast of Abaco, where
building homes and apartments
and dredging a marina will

Tropical storm

FROM page one

tropical storm around 2 pm yes-
terday. Accuweather forecasters
warned it could strengthen into
a hurricane as early today or
tomorrow.

The Department of Meteo-
rology issued a tropical storm
alert was issued at 6 pm yes-
terday for the southeast
Bahamas (Inagua, Mayagua-
na, Acklins, Ragged Island

and Crooked Island) and the |

Turks and Caicos, Wayne
Neely a forecaster at the
Department of Meteorology
said.

A tropical storm alert
means that tropical storm con-
ditions could be experienced
in those areas within 60 hours.

"On the projected track,
Gustav will become a hurri-
cane by 2 pm (today) as it gets
off the coast of Haiti until it
hits land over Cuba and weak-
ens into a tropical storm," said
Mr Neely.

According to Accuweather
meteorologist Allan Reppert,
the islands of the southern
Bahamas should brace for
heavy rainfall and strong
winds as the storm moves

west.
"It looks like probably by



1. MEDICAL ASSISTING

Friday we could be seeing the
effects in the southern parts
of the Bahamas possibly. Best
chance is probably late in the
week, into the weekend that
we could see effects from the
storm. With it (the storm)
being that many days away
the (projected) track could
change but we do expect the
track to be off to the west and
making landfall over the
southern part of Cuba and
going northwestward, so it
looks like it should be off to
the west for the Bahamas,"
said Mr Reppert.

He added that the southern
Bahamas should brace for
stronger winds and heavy
rainfall as Gustav "could eas-
ily be a hurricane by (this
afternoon)."

Forecasters expect Gustav
to gradually decrease in
forward speed over the next
few days, according to the
NHC. *

At 2 pm yesterday, a tropi-
cal storm warning for the
southwest peninsula of Haiti
from southern border with the
Dominican Republic and
Port-au-Prince, Haiti was
upgraded to a hurricane warn-
ing, according to the National
Hurricane Centre's website.

2. DENTAL ASSISTING |

A hurricane warning means
hurricane conditions are
expected in the warning areas
within the next 24 hours.
The storm is expected to
dump five to seven inches of
rain on Hispaniola and threat-
ens the island with dangerous
flash floods and mudslides.
Haiti is still recovering from

Tropical Storm Fay, which,

battered the island a little
over a week ago and left
dozens dead due to heavy
flooding.

Preparing For A Hurricane

e listen for weather updates;

° prepare a disaster supply
kit;

* refill prescriptions;

e clear yard of potential
debris;

¢ protect windows and glass
doors with plywood or storm
shutters;

e fill car with gas; check

water, oil and tyres

secure your boat;

e get cash - banks and
ATMs will not be in opera-
tion without electricity.

this is just Christie trying to rule by chaos. If I

was Shane Gibson, or Neville Wisdom, Id be |

scared,” the source said.

Speaking about the reference to Mr Gibson
and former MP Wisdom, the source claimed that
both persons were mentioned in the report as
examples of persons involved in scandals that Mr
Christie was too “weak” to handle.

Other examples included the Korean Boat scan-
dal involving foreign fishing boats being given
permission to fish in Bahamian waters, despite
this being an industry reserved exclusively for
Bahamians; and the much publicized Anna Nicole
affair involving Mr Gibson.

However, as the report by Greenberg Quinlan
Rosner points out, the PLP needs to demonstrate
that it is taking action against corruption, and
show the public that it is truly committed to service
if it wants to win at the polls again.

Among the suggestions offered, including devel-

oping and publicizing a party code of conduct,
the surveyors offered some additional insight:

“As popular as some of these measures might
be, nothing would send a stronger signal of the par-
ty’s seriousness about ethics and integrity than to
expel a senior member for corruption. We are
not recommending an unwarranted hunt for some
sacrificial lamb, but the truth is, no action would
have as much political impact as a well known
figure being exposed and punished by his or her
own party,” the report read.

However, as sources explained to The Tribune,
the hard part now for the PLP is to identify which
member would be used to revamp its image and be
exposed on allegations of corruption.

“This is cold, calculated Machiavellianism at
its best and these guys are out for blood. This is
about holding onto power at any cost,” it was
claimed.

Olympic champ
Dementieva opens
with win at US Open

@ TENNIS

NEW YORK

Associated Press

OLYMPIC champion Elena
Dementieva showed her mettle
at the U.S. Open, rallying in the



second set Monday to beat

Akgul Amanmuradova 6-4, 7-5
to start what’s expected to be a
wide-open tournament.

Back from Beijing with her
gold, Dementieva won the final
four games. The fifth-seeded
Russian was glad to win quickly
and give her mind and body a
break.

“It’s very hard not to think
about the Olympic Games,”
Dementieva said. “Very difficult
to refocus. I mean, all my think-
ing is there in Beijing.”

Former champions Lindsay
Davenport and Svetlana
Kuznetsova and fourth-seeded
David Ferrer also opened with

straight-sets victories. Many of |

the stars were in a hurry — they
wanted to beat the rain in the
forecast. ;
Top-seeded Rafael Nadal,
James Blake and Jelena Jankovic

were set to play later Monday.”

Roger Federer, bidding for his
fifth straight U.S. Open title, was
scheduled to begin Tuesday, as
were No.1 Ana Ivanovic and the
Williams sisters.

The final Grand Slam event
of the season figured to be a
scramble, especially on the wom-
en’s side. Justine Henin retired
and is not back to defend her

title and Maria Sharapova is out.

with an injured shoulder.

Six different women have won
the U.S. Open in the last seven
years, and Dementieva is seeking
her first major championship.
But to her, the Olympic singles
title counts.

“The biggest goal for the year

_was Beijing,” she said..“In Rus- '

sia, if you stop anyone in the
street and ask what is a Grand
Slam, I don’t think many people
can tell you. But everyone knows
the Olympic Games. There is
nothing bigger.”

During a quick stopover in
Moscow to see her mom, she
found out how much the gold
_meant.

“People just come to me and

say, Oh, I’m happy for you.
You're always losing in the final.
It’s so great that you finally win
something big,” she said.

Dementieva put together a
workmanlike win over Aman-
muradova. Her opponent from
Uzbekistan served for the sec-
ond ahead 5-3, but Dementieva
still had enough energy.

“T don’t know what is best, to
be a little bit tired but very com-
fortable and very positive, or to
be fresh and not play in the
Olympic Games.”

Li Na, who beat Venus
Williams in Beijing, beat Shahar
Peer of Israel 2-6, 6-0, 6-1. The
No. 23-seeded Davenport defeat-
ed Aleksandra Wozniak of
Canada, 6-4, 6-2 and No. 3
Kuznetsova beat Zhang Shuai of
China 6-4, 6-2.

On the men’s side, the fourth-
seeded Ferrer beat Martin Vas-
sallo Arguello of Argentina 7-6
(1), 6-2, 6-2 and No. 32 Gael
Monfils downed Pablo Cuevas
of Uruguay 6-4, 6-4, 6-1. The No.
29-seeded Juan Monaco of
Argentina lost to Kei Nishikori
of Japan 6-2, 6-2, 5-7, 6-2.

Beijing prepares
for Olympic
venues’ future

@ OLYMPICS
BEIJING
Associated press

WHERE Olympians ran,
swam and slept, Chinese orga-
nizers see pop concerts, a pub-
lic pool, soccer and luxury
apartme fs,

Authorities are scrambling
to make sure the 91,000-seat
Bird’s Nest stadium and other
venues are put to good use
after the Olympics and Sep-
tember’s Paralympics. They
want to avoid the fate of other
Olympic hosts that were left
with empty, debt-burdened
facilities.

The NBA and private devel-
opers have been signed up to
run stadiums and arenas. The
Water Cube swimming center,
due to become a public pool,
raised money by licensing its
name for.a bottled water
brand. The Bird’s Nest is tak-
ing bids from companies for
naming rights.

“We believe that post games
and for a long period of time,
these venues will be used pret-
ty well,” Du Wei, vice presi-
dent of the Beijing Olympic
Economy Research Associa-
tion, a group linked to the Bei-
jing organizers, told reporters.
“The management companies
will immediately open them up
for public use.”

Still, Du and others say it
could take decades for the
Bird’s Nest and other venues to
pay for themselves.

“We can’t expect in the short
term all the investment will be
regained right away,” Du said.

Beijing built 12 permanent
and eight-temporary new
venues and refurbished 11 oth-
ers at a cost of $1.9 billion,
according to the city govern-
ment.

The Bird’s Nest will be the
highest-profile test case for the
city’s ability to make them
financially viable.

It has the advantage that it is
the first big, modern stadium in
a city where the main venue
for rock concerts and sports
has been the drab Workers
Stadium, a 58,000-seat hulk
built in 1959. But the new facil-

ity’s huge size and potentially’

high user fees could put it
beyond the reach of many
events.

The stadium’s deputy gen-
eral manager, Zhang Hengli,
declined to give financial
details or information on
planned events. But he told the
newspaper China Business
News it could take 30 years for
the Bird’s Nest to repay its
$220 million cost. Zhang said it
needs at least $19 million in
annual revenues to cover main-
tenance and debt payments.

Beijing is relying in part ona
timeworn strategy of forcing
state companies to share the
cost of public facilities.

CITIC Group, the invest-
ment arm of China’s Cabinet,
put up 48 percent of the money

to build the Bird’s Nest and.

the CITIC-owned Beijing
Guoan soccer club will make
the stadium its home field.

Zhang, the stadium official,
declined to discuss naming
rights. But China Business
News said as many as seven
companies are bidding. It said
they include non-Chinese bid-
ders, though attaching a for-
eign brand name to a national
symbol that appears on Chi-
na’s 10-yuan note might be
judged politically unacceptable.

The stadium has raised $14.5
million by selling sponsorships
to companies including 3M
Corp. and German drug com-
pany Bayer AG. Their names
appear on seats and other facil-
ities.

The Water Cube was paid
for by donations from ethnic
Chinese abroad, making it
cheaper to convert to public
use. But in a city where the
average income per person is
$4,100 a year, managers say
ticket prices will be kept low,
which leaves less for upkeep
of its pool and its futuristic bub-
ble-wrap exterior:

“If we rely only on swim-
ming pool tickets, we certainly
will lose money,” Kang Wei, a
deputy manager of the gov-
ernment company that owns
the pool, said in comments on
the Beijing organizers’ Web
site. “So we will have other
products to guarantee the oper-
ation in the long run.”

MIAMI DOLPHINS quarterback Chad Pennington drops back to pass during the first quarter of a
preseason football game against the Kansas-City Chiefs Saturday, Aug. 23, 2008 at Dolphin Stadi-

m@ FOOTBALL
DAVIE, Fla.
Associated Press

MIAMI DOLPHINS coach
Tony Sparano couldn’t help but
have a little fun Monday when
he finally announced the winner
of the team’s drawn-out quar-
terback competition.

“It’s Chad,” he said, chuck-
ling.
Chad Pennington or Chad
Henne?

“Pennington,” he added. “I
think the guy will do a great job
of managing our team. And the
team has responded really well
to him, and that’s where we are
going.”

The announcement officially
sets up an intriguing Week 1
matchup in Miami against the

New. York Jets, the team-that- -
cut Pennington to clear*salary::

the starting job. The Jets
released Pennington more than
two. weeks ago when they

acquired Favre from Green Bay. .

Pennington, who learned of
the decision after practice Mon-
day afternoon, was only made
available to speak to the media
before the announcement. But
he released a statement through
the team.

“I’m excited about the oppor-
tunity to lead this team,” Pen-
nington said. “We’ve worked
extremely hard over the last two
weeks, and I’m proud to be a
Miami Dolphin.” |

The decision was hardly sur-
prising.

Pennington was recognized as
the starter when he signed with
Miami. The 32-year-old sepa-
rated himself from Miami’s oth-
er quarterbacks — Henne, Josh
McCown and John Beck — and
has led the Dolphins to consec-
utive preseason wins in convinc-
ing fashion. He is 16-for-21 for

149 yards and one touchdown.

Perhaps more importantly, he
quickly has become one of
Miami’s leaders. Pennington has
held receivers after practice to
work on routes and timing. And
he’s taken teammates out for
dinners and movies just to get
to know them.

“A heck of a leader,” guard
Justin Smiley said last week. “I
mean, he doesn’t know any of
us from the man on the moon
right now, but he comes into the
huddle and says, "Give me your
eyes.’

“We didn’t break the huddle
good one time and he was like,
*Nah, nah, nah. Next time, we’ve
got to stand and break the hud-
dle.’ Just stuff a veteran with
great leadership would do. It’s
pretty exciting.”

. But the Dolphins. have seen

Pennington will be the 13th
starting quarterback for Miami
since Dan Marino announced
his retirement in 2000. And
inconsistency at the position is

perhaps why the Dolphins have

missed the playoffs a record six
straight seasons.

Coming off an embarrassing
1-15 season, the Dolphins are
hoping Pennington can provide
some stability this season and
be a bridge and mentor to
Henne. Pennington ranks first
in NFL history among quarter-
backs with at least 1,500
attempts with a 65.6 completion
percentage.

“We're a young team,” Spara-
no said. “He brings manage-
ment skills to the table. He can
manage a game really well. He’s
a little bit calmer in there. He’s
seen more situations.”

The decision to start Pen-

nington leaves the future of

Beck and McCown in doubt.
Sparano did not announce a

‘backup and has insisted the Dol-

phins could keep four quarter-
backs, but financial reasons and
limited roster space make that
scenario unlikely.

Bahamas
Baskethall
Federation to
host collegiate
competition

@ by RENALDO DORSETT

Sports Reporter ‘

The Bahamas Basketball
Federation will again host
collegiate competition dur-
ing the summer months to
help teams prepare for their
upcoming campaigns and
give local squads an opportu-
nity to face an elite level of
competition. aes

The University of Seattle
Redhawks will play a series
of exhibition games this
week at the Kendal G.L.
Issacs Gymnasium.

Last year the BBF hosted
a number of universities
including Indiana and one-
and-done sensation Eric
Gordon, now with the
NBA’s Los Angeles Clip-
pers.

The Redhawks will face
three Bahamian squads
including the College of the
Bahamas Caribs and the
NPBA runners-up the Elec-
tro Telecom Cybots.

The Redhawks are set to
advance to the NCAA Divi-
sion One in for the 2008-09
season and will use the trip
as a preliminary for their
premiere in one of college
basketball’s top rated pre-
season tournaments, “The
Great Alaska Shootout.”

The Redhawks have also
traveled to Barcelona, Spain
on a similar exhibition tour,
prior to the 2003-04 season.

S WITH ITS TWO MEDALS, TEAM BAHAMAS DID THE NATION PROUD

Proving we belong

@ by RENALDO DORSETT
Sports Reporter

Team Bahamas once again dis-
played its athletic prowess on the
world’s largest stage by equalling
its highest total medal output at
the Olympic Games and finish-
ing as one of the most formidable
countries per capita.

. With the two medals won at
the Beijing Olympics, the
Bahamas equalled their medal
winning efforts from Athens in
2004 and Sydney in 2000 and con-
tinued what has become a tradi-
tion of track and field excellence
since Frank Rutherford won the
country’s first medal in athletics at
the Barcelona Games in 1992.

Triple jumper Leevan Sands
carried the burden of the entire
team into their final individual
event when he won the Bahamas’
first medal of the Beijing
Olympics with a National Record
setting bronze medal jump of
17.59m. Sands’ bronze medal win-
ning jump came just moments
after Chris Brown was denied the
bronze medal in the men’s 400m
when he was edged out on a head
first dive across the line by Amer-
ica’s David Neville.

Brown, with the help of team-

mates Ramon Miller, Avard |,

Moncur, Michael Mathieu, Andre
Williams, and NCAA Indoor and
Outdoor 400m champion,
Andretti Bain, rebounded to
claim the silver medal in the
1600m relay in the final event at
the Bird’s Nest.

_In the official post-games
standings, the Bahamas was one
of six countries tied for 65th posi-
tion, among more than 200 coun-
tries.

With just a 24 member team,
the Bahamas walked away with
two medals, besting much larger
squads. | :

South Africa’s team of 142 fin-
ished with just one medal, Egyp-
t’s team of 104 finished with just

one medal, while Belgium’s team
of 103 athletes finished with two.

Team Manager, Foster Dorsett,
placed the entire team’s perfor-
mance in perspective.

“We had some disappointing
performances. I know Derrick
(Atkins) wanted to get a medal,
but he did not get into the final as
did Chandra (Sturrup) and Don-
ald (Thomas)” he said, “But
when you look at the fact that
Debbie (Ferguson-Mckenzie) got
into two finals and we ended up
with two medals from Leevan and
the men’s 4x4 team we have to
be pleased.”

The silver medal in the 1600m
relay will turn out to be the sec-
ond relay medals for Moncur and
Brown. With Antonio Pettigrew’s
admission to using banned per-
formance enhancing substances

was stripped of their medals and
the Bahamas’ team of Moncur,
Brown, Carl Oliver, and Tim
Munnings will be awarded the
bronze medal after the results are
officially adjusted. The Bahamas
won its first Olympic medal at the
1956 Games in Australia, when
Sir Durward Knowles teamed
with Sloan Farrington to win the
bronze medal in the Sailing, star
class division.

Knowles returned to take the
gold medal in the same event at
the 1964 Games in Japan along-
side teammate Cecil Cooke.

Following the gold medal tri-
umph, the Bahamas experienced
a medal winning drought which
spanned nearly three decades and
five Olympiads (the country boy-
cotted the 1980 Games in
Moscow) before Rutherford’s
bronze medal performance in
Barcelona.

their fallen
soldiers

@ By ROB GILLIES
WHITBY, Ontario

More than 200 people line an

overpass above a stretch of
.Canada’s busiest thoroughfare
now known as the “Highway of
Heroes” ‘to pay final tribute to
three soldiers killed in
Afghanistan.
. Veterans, families and fire-
fighters respectfully applaud and
wave maple leaf.flags as the
motorcade passes. The soldiers’
families wave back in apprecia-
tion.

The ritual is repeated every
time a fallen soldier returns to
Canada. | —

On Saturday night, as three
bodies moved down the 100-mile-
long section of Highway 401 that
connects the military base in
Trenton, Ontario, to‘the morgue
in Toronto, dozens of bridges
along the way were packed with

Canada has lost 93 soldiers and
one diplomat in Afghanistan ——
including three soldiers killed by
a roadside bomb last Wednesday.
The country first sent troops to
Afghanistan after the 9/11 attacks
and increased the deployment
after declining a U:S. request to
dispatch troops to Iraq. -

As. the death toll in
Afghanistan approaches 100, it
threatens to rekindle a debate
between those who argue a stable
Afghanistan is needed to protect
Canadians and global security and
opponents who say too many sol-
diers are dying for a lost cause.
That debate had largely dissipat-
ed since parliament voted in
March to extend the mission to
2011) 2% WOE Rs



Retired Maj. Gen. Lewis
MacKenzie, the commander of a
U.N. force in the Balkans, said
the milestone could revive debate
about the mission but is not like-
ly to derail it.

: “There will be a lot of atten-
tion but I don’t think it will cause
a change in policy,” he said. “It’s
as tragic at 99 as it is at 101.”

‘ One idea that could fuel the
debate is that some Canadians
lump Afghanistan with the war
in Iraq. ;

, “Here’s a U.N.-sanctioned mis-
gion carried out by NATO and
you still have people referring to
it as Bush’s war and we’re the
lackeys of the Americans,”
MacKenzie said. “That’s just knee
jerk anti-American, anti-Bush
thetoric.”

, Canada’s Conservative gov-
ernment had banned the media
from showing live images of flag-
draped coffins at the Trenton
base in 2006, angering political
opponents and some families who
accused the government of try-
ing to play down the growing
human cost of the mission in
Afghanistan.

' The decision mirrored the
Bush administration policy block-
ing media coverage of the coffins
of slain service members arriving
in the United States.

i; Canada’s government has since
changed its stance on media cov-
erage of coffins in Trenton and
it now lets the families decide if
they want it. .

PEOPLE line a bridge in Whitby, Ontario, Canadajto pay respects to the passing convoy for the three deceased soldiers following their repatriation to

Canada on Saturday, Aug. 23, 2008. A roadside blast Wednesday killed the three soldiers in the southern Afghanistan province of Kandahar,
Canada's Department of National Defense said. Their deaths bring to 93 the number of Canadian soldiers who have died during the Afghan mission

since it began in 2002.

“Tt’s a big number and it’s
growing. Every time I come to
the bridge I always wish it was
my last. But you know in the back
of your mind that it’s not going to
be the last,” said McFarlane,
whose nephew served ‘in
Afghanistan. “It’s the least that
I can do for these guys who are
giving their lives,” he said.

The mounting toll in the fight
against al-Qaida and the Taliban
has exacted an emotional, if not
political, price in Canada — a
country whose traditional role as
peacekeeper has left its citizens
unaccustomed to seeing soldiers
die.

Canada has not lost so many
soldiers since more than 500 were
killed in the Korean War.

Judith Churchill, a 36-year-old
teacher, brought her two kids to
an overpass in Whitby on Satur-
day night but she had no answer
when they asket when the war
would end. ;

“I never thought it would get
that high,” Churchill said of the
death toll. “Canadians are tradi-

tionally peacekeepers and so for
us to lose that many, it’s hard.”
Jim Flaherty, Canada’s Finance
Minister, praised his constituents
who have been showing up each
time a dead soldier is returned.
“It’s a great outpouring of sup-
port by ordinary Canadians. None
of this was orchestrated by the
government or by the town or
anything like that. It’s just people
that want to come out and pay
their respects,” Flaherty said..
' “Tt’s uniquely Canadian. It was
spontaneous.”
Canadians — the majority of
‘whom applauded their govern-
ment for declining to join the
U.S.-led invasion of Iraq — are
increasingly concerned about the
toll in Afghanistan.
In all, there are some 53,000

NATO-led troops from 27 coun- .

tries serving there. But it has been

forces — with support from Den-

mark, Romania, Estonia and non-
NATO Australia — that have
borne the brunt of the Taliban’s
attacks.

Canada has 2,500 soldiers sta-
tioned in Kandahar province, the
former Taliban stronghold that
has again emerged as the epicen-
ter of violence.

This year will likely be the

deadliest for international troops
since the 2001 invasion. Some 188
soldiers from international forces,
including about 101 Americans,
have died so far, according to an
Associated Press count. At that
pace, the year’s total would far
surpass the record 222 troop
deaths in 2007.

At least 500 members of the
U:S. military have died since the
US. invaded Afghanistan in late
2001 for sheltering Osama bin

Laden, according to the U.S. |

Department of. Defense. John
Pierrepont, 55, a retired Toronto
police officer, does not agree with
the mission in Afghanistan but
supports the troops. He’s been to
the “Highway of Heroes” about
20 times.

" “Some people cry. Some peo-
ple clap. It’s just amazing,” Pier-
repont said. “It’s too bad we did-
n’t have morc politicians here that
might be less willing to send them
over there.”

Steve Weiner, a 53-year-old
dentist, pulled off the side of
Highway 401 last week after

another dead soldier was brought,
home. “I don’t think we’re get=
ting accustomed to seeing soldiers’

die. There were 100 people on
the bridge,” he said. “TI left after a
while and every bridge all the way
home had a 100 people on it. It’s
a sign of how special each one of
these people are.”

Real estate project's first phase 58% sold

Caves Heights developer says ‘economy may be rebounding’, as sales rebound from six-month lull

@ By CARA BRENNEN-BETHEL
Tribune Business Reporter

An upscale western New Providence
real estate development has sold 58 per
cent of its first phase units, its developer
told Tribune Business yesterday, after
experiencing a fall- off in demand during
the 2008 first half.

Chris Herrod said the Caves Heights
project, located near the Caves Village
development and the existing Caves con-

. dominium complex, seemed to be

rebounding from the economic chal-

tial developments as a result of the US
economic downturn.

“We. had definitely seen a slowdown
on sales for the first six.months of the
year, but now we have been getting quite
a few inquires. It is a sign that the econ-

omy may be rebounding,” Mr Herrod |

said.
“We have done a lot of pre-selling,

and at the moment I would say that we
-have sold about 58 per cent of the units

in the first two towers.”

Mr Herrod explained that to date,
ground has been broken and construc-
tion has begun on the first phase of the

project, which involves completing the
first two towers.

“We’ve begun pouring the foundation
of the first two towers, which have 44
units, and that is scheduled to be com-
pleted within 18 months.

“Then we will enter phase two - the °
remaining towers - which will have 42 -

units,” he added.
Mr Herod said he was pleased with

‘the progress of Caves Heights, and said

the developers were currently on target

to meet their projected timelines.
Caves Heights also posted this

progress report on its website on Tues-

day August, 19: “The contractors com-
pound is in place.

:Site grading is under way, and block
work is going up.

“We are on track with all construc-
tion. Views are wonderful.

‘We will start with construction of the
sales office and build a road track to
give easy access in the following months,
so clients can easily access the site and
see progress during construction.”

The Caves Heights development is a
private ocean view community, which
sits on seven acres. Unit prices begin at
$695,000.

Family Guardian’s health premium revenues increased 20.per
cent year-on-year for the 2008 first half, its president told Tribune
Business yesterday, but added that its full-year financial perfor-
mance would be directly linked to how the weak Bahamian equi-
ties market performed. |

Patricia Hermanns said that while the BISX-listed life and health
insurer was “optimistic” about continued growth in top-line pre-
mium revenues through the 2008 year-end, the equities market and
its effect on the value of Family Guardian’s investments portfolio
would “impact our results going forward”.

Ms Hermanns told Tribune Business that the increase in claims
paid out as policyholder benefits, which had risen by 21.4 per cent
in the 2008 first half to $22.368 million, would impact the company’s
results “less than the equities market”.

Singapore shows Bahamas

lm BY LARRY GIBSON

nflation in the US is run-

ning at an annual rate of

just under 6 per cent.

Crude oil is up by 46 per
cent, and gasoline by 30 per cent,
so far this year. The major
economies around the world, in
North America, Europe and Asia,
are slowing down.

What does this mean for the
average Bahamian?

This means that'tough times
are ahead for at least the next
nine to 18 months. In recent
years, salary increases have been
averaging around 3 per cent per
year - if you’re lucky! Businesses
are also feeling the pinch, and I
am concerned that many small
businesses are folding.

Talk Shows

On one talk show this week,
the topic was the skyrocketing
cost of electricity. Caller after
caller told horror stories of their
personal.experiences.

On a personal level, my month-
ly bill is up by about 40 per cent
over the past eight months.

This is after getting rid of all
incandescent light bulbs in favor
of fluorescent bulbs; putting the
water heater on a timer; making a
conscious effort to turn off lights
and electronics in unused rooms;
and using air conditioning as spar-
ingly as possible.

invest in a timer for your water

3. Cut out wasteful spending.

lished an 80-page document enti-
tled National Energy Policy

‘Report (NEPR). Two things

immediately struck me about the
report:

1. There seem to: be national
consensus (buy in).

2. It is a plan that goes far
beyond the next election cycle.

Singapore’s NEPR is a com-
prehensive report that lays a clear
blueprint for the future. In the
‘forward’ to the report, the Min-
ister for Trade and Industry
states: “One key challenge is
ensuring our energy security.
Having no energy resources of
our own, we are dependent on
imports of oil and gas for our
energy needs, and hence are vul-
nerable to the risks of supply dis-
ruption. It is imperative that we

manage the security of our ener- |

gy sources. The issues surround-

‘



NOTICE

ing energy security are multi-
faceted, but a key strategy is to
diversify our energy sources.”

The Bahamas faces the same
‘macro’ issues as Singapore, and
in this vein, we should:

1. Aggressively look at approv-
ing one or several of the LNG
proposals on the table (with
appropriate. safeguards and con-
ditions). \

2. Immediately remove all cus-
toms duties and direct taxes on:

* Solar panels and related bat-
tery systems

* Wind turbines

* Ocean turbines

* Equipment used for bonafide
renewable energy plants

However, in doing so we must
ensure we have proper zoning
regulations and permit require-

. ments in place.

3. Further reduce the rate of
duty on hybrids and electric vehi-
cles. ;

-_ Bahamas to host Film Showcase





The Bahamas is to play host
to filmmakers from around
the region during the Second
Travelling Caribbean Film
Showcase, to be held from
October 1-4.

Bahamas FilmInvest Inter-
national, a sponsor and organ-
iser of last year’s event, said
the showcase, which was
established two years ago, is
intended to recognise the

_work and skill of film produc- ©
ers from the Caribbean.

It also provides an avenue
for these producers to expose
their work and creativity to
other members of the broader
Caribbean community.

Owen Bethel, the Bahamian
banker who is president of
Bahamas FilmInvest Interna-
tional, and a member of the
National Coordinating Com-

MC a mittee, said last year’s event

exposed Bahamians for the
first time to the depth of skill
and diversity that exists with-
in the region.

“The calibre of the works
of these producers could stand
parallel to the films out of
well-known Hollywood pro-
ducers. Furthermore, the films
generally contained issues or
subject matter to the which
the local population could

‘relate,” Mr Bethel said.

The showcase this year will
focus on themes that are rele-
vant to children and adoles-
cents, as well as issues that
affect and threaten Caribbean
youth.

Erica James, curator of the
National Art Gallery and a
member of the National
Coordinating Committee,
added: “Given our own cir-
cumstances, regarding the

process with them, and received
all our permits and approvals
this year,” Mr Bentley said.

“We went out to bid on the
construction contracts, and got
started in July. We are under-
taking construction on the mari-
na, and according to Bahamas
Marine its due for a Novem-
ber/December completion.”

Mr Bentley said work had
also begun on enhancing
Romora Bay’s infrastructure,
putting in a wastewater treat-
ment plant, and upgrading park-
ing and the bar and restaurant
area. Bahamas Marine current-
ly has 12-14 construction work-
ers on site.

Romora Bay’s owner, the
Bonachella Investments con-
sortium, endured a more than
three-year wait for all the nec-
essary government permits and
approvals after it acquired the
property in November 2004.

A particular source of frus-
tration, as revealed by Tribune
Business last year, was that
under the former PLP govern-
ment the Docks Committee,
which is responsible for approv-.
ing all Bahamas-based marina
developments, first gave - but
then rescinded - approval for
Romora Bay’s 40-slip marina.

It was thought that the deci-
sion to rescind the approval was
connected to the development

of a ‘Master Plan’ for Harbour
Island’s development that had
been proposed by the Save Har-
bour Island Association
(SHIA).

That group, largely made up
of winter residents and second
homes, was opposing any fur-
ther resort development on
Harbour Island, citing the 60-
slip marina at the nearby Valen-
tine’s Resort - which seemed
completely out of scale with the
island’s size and character - as a
prime example of their con-
cerns.

However, Mr Bentley con-
firmed to Tribune Business yes-
terday that “everything is
squared away” when it came to
the government approvals that
Romora Bay needed. Among
the permits it is understood to
have secured are a seabed lease
and Hotels Encouragement Act
agreement.

“Tt’s an exciting time for us,”
Mr Bentley said. “If anyone
knows Romora Bay, it’s a great
piece of property that’s seen
better days, so we’re excited to
bring it to the level Harbour
Island ‘and the Bahamas
deserve.

“We're being very conscious
of the need to keep to the spir-
it of what Harbour Island is,
and the design bears that in

mind. It’s been a long time com-

ing. We’d have liked to be

where we are now two years
ago, but we’ll take it and push
forward from this.”

Remora Bay currently fea-
tures 26 rooms, and the owners
plan to increase its capacity to a
total of 40 with the addition of
new condo hotel units.

“We’re actually in the process
of upgrading the existing hotel
units, and hopefully next year,
once the marina is completed,

we will start work on the new ~

condo hotel units,” Mr Bentley
said. ;

Although unable to give a
precise figure, he added that
Romora Bay’s expansion was
likely to come close to at least
doubling existing staff numbers
of 25-30 personnel.

In its initial economic projec-
tions for the project, as reported
by Tribune Business last year,
Bonachella Investments pro-
jected that the development
would have a $57.5 million total
economic impact over a three-
year period and create between
90-100 extra jobs.

Over that same three-year
period, it was projected that the
Romora Bay expansion would
generate an extra $9 million in
tax revenues and $27 million in
on and off-property guest

Meanwhile, Mr Bentley told
Tribune Business: “When it
comes to the project itself, we’re
doing everything to be as envi-
ronmentally sensitive as possi-
ble. We plan on this being as
environmentally friendly a mari-
na operation of any in the
Bahamas.”

Mr Bentley said Romora Bay
was “doing all of the compo-
nents of the Blue Flag certifi-
cation” programme for its mari-
na, which is a new build and
should be completed by
November/December 2008.

The certification involves
training all Romora Bay staff
to make sure waste is disposed
of properly; providing sewerage
pumping out stations for all vis-
iting boats; providing recycling
and waste disposal; offering
Blue Flag certification to
boaters; and providing all guest
boats with a dye disc.

The latter initiative, Mr Bent-
ley explained, would enable any
vessels who flushed and emp-
tied out their holding tanks
while in the marina to be cited,
as the dye would detect this and
change colour.

FamGuard health
premiums grow
20% year-on-year

FROM page 1B

And with the BISX All-Share
Index down by around 12 per
cent for the year-to-date, Ms
Hermanns said it was possible
that the decline in value of Fam-
ily Guardian’s equity invest-
ments could continue - and
deepen - during the 2008 sec-
ond half.

“The critical issue for us this
year is the equities market and
its weakness. The equities mar-
ket will impact our performance
going forward, depending on
how far prices decline,” Family
Guardian’s president said.
“That is a constant, but outside
of that we are optimistic about
our continued growth. We
anticipate our being able to
grow through year-end.

“The equities market has the
potential of making increasing
swings against the prior year.
Last year the market went up
quite aggressively, against sig-
nificant declines this year.”

Family Guardian saw the
unrealized value of its invest-
ments in equities (the current
paper value of its existing
investments in stocks and
shares) drop by $817,693 dur-
ing the 2008 first half, compared
to a $1.074 million gain during
the first six months of June
2007.

This $1.9 million swing was
almost entirely responsible for
Family Guardian’s 39 per cent
drop in first half profits to
$3.025 million, compared to the
$4.959 million gained in the
2007 comparative period.

Seemingly preparing Family
Guardian’s shareholders for the
fact that the company’s 2008
financial performance is unlike-
ly to be as buoyant as 2007’s
record-setting year, Ms Her-
manns said the issues raised by

we've been

companies.”

the equities market decline
were not “particular” to her
company.

Rival Bahamian life and
health insurers were all suffer-
ing declines in the value of their
investment portfolios, too, and
Ms Hermanns said Family
Guardian’s equities holdings
were smaller than those of its
competitors - implying the com-
pany was not affected as much.

’ Although Family Guardian
saw a 26.7 per cent spike in ben-
efits paid-out during the 2008
second quarter, rising to $12.059
million from $9.519 million in
2007, Ms Hermanns said there
was “nothing unusual” in this
increase, which was caused by a
rise in death claims.

Pointing out that claims
trends often moved in cycles,
the Family Guardian president
said that based on conversations
with her Bahamian life and
health insurance counterparts,
she understood “that the indus-
try has seen an escalation in
death claims this year”.

Another factor behind the
claims and benefits increase was
the growth in Family
Guardian’s health business, as

increased volumes naturally
translate into a rise in claims
for life and health insurers.

However, Ms Hermanns said
the rate of health premium
growth was outstripping the
increase in medical claims.

She explained: “We have
experienced a substantial
increase in our health business.
We have had a large jump in
health business sold. We are up,
in terms of premium, by more
than 20 per cent over the prior
year on health business.

“That’s not reflective only of
business gained this year. We
have been very aggressive,
through our agency force, in
expanding our reach into the
health market and other mar-
kets. We’ve seen some transfer
of business; we’ve seen new
business, and some of it’s come
from existing business.”

Ms Hermanns added: “Our
premium income has grown
substantially. We’re seeing that
our business volumes are con-
tinuing to expand, and our pre--
mium revenue is growing.

“TI think that’s outstripping
our [growth in] claims by a long
shot. The growth in claims is
related to the growth in busi-
ness volumes - the more busi-
ness you get, the more claims
you get - but the rise in claims is
not outstripping the growth in
premium.”

Ms Hermanns added that
despite the difficult economic
climate, Family Guardian had
not seen any increase in policy
surrenders by its clients.

“We haven’t seen anything
that is a concern. Our premium
growth reflects that,” Ms Her-
manns said. “We haven’t seen
any huge changes in surrenders,
like we’ve been reading about
with other companies. We
haven’t seen any upturn in pol-
icy surrenders.” ‘

positive direction, as opposed to
going in with debt. Ownership
involves more participation by
the fund, and we're looking to be
equity partners in more new ven-
tures.”

Mr Cunningham said the
Bahamas Entrepreneurial Ven-
ture Fund “hasn’t seen the kind of
performance expected over the
last few years” from the debt and
equity investments made in the
dreams of Bahamian entrepre-
neurs.

When it came to loans (debt)
made to start-ups, he added:
“Those are the ones we find are
more trouble than the ones where

we've taken equity stakes.”

Mr Cunningham said the
Bahamas Entrepreneurial Ven-
ture Fund’s Board and its admin-
istrator, Jerome Gomez of Baker
Tilly, Gomez, were currently
working on developing a three-
year “strategic plan” for the fund
that was likely to be presented to
the Government within the next
four to five weeks.

A key component of that three-
year plan is the need to attract
private investors and capital to
invest in the Bahamas Entrepre-
neurial Venture Fund, something
that Mr Cunningham said might
be achieved at the end of those
three years.

Apart from making the fund
less reliant on the Government,

- BUSINESS

which is currently its sole sponsor
through a $1 million annual injec-
tion, attracting private capital
would also enable it to increase
the size of its individual invest-
ments and take on ‘higher-risk,
greater return’ projects.

Currently, the Bahamas Entre-
preneurial Venture Fund is limit-
ed to a maximum $100,000 loan
to any applicant, and a maximum
$200,000 equity stake.

“We're putting together a
three-year strategic plan, and
hopefully in the next three years
we'll get to the point where we
turn the fund around,” Mr Cun-
ningham said.

“The way we're looking at it
going forward, in the not too dis-
tant future, is to get private equi-

ty participation in the fund as well
in the form of shares, and not just
rely on an annual injection from
the Government.

“We don’t want to be highly
dependent on government to
finance the fund itself. We want
to move away from that.

“If we have private capital, we
believe we can get more money to
start off with, and if we get more
funds we can start to venture into
bigger projects.

“Some of the higher risk ones
we feel can do well.”

Mr Cunningham said he knew
of at least one business that need-
ed $500,090 in funding to “get it
where it needs to be. Higher risk
equates to higher return, and
some of the pension funds may

to construct a new tank park in
that area. It is under review,” he
said.

BORCO was acquired earlier
this year, in a deal thought to be
worth $900 million, by a combi-
nation of US-based First Reserve
Corporation, the world’s largest
private equity investor in the oil
and gas industries, and terminal
operator Royal Vopak NV.
Vopak has a 20 per cent equity
interest in the deal, which was
first revealed by Tribune Busi-
ness.

The duo purchased BORCO
from the Venezuelan state oil
company, PDVSA, and inherit-
ed an unused 200-acre site that
was always likely to be used for
future expansion.

Prior to the Greenfield Expan-
sion project, the new owners have
already initiated a $50-million
refurbishment project to restore
2.5 million barrels of oil storage
capacity.

Mr Huizer said all of Vopak
Terminal Bahamas’ tank space
was currently sold out to clients,
but while there was currently 20
million barrels of storage capaci-
ty on site, some five million was
out of service.

“Our clients are crying out for
more space and they are relying
on Vopak,” he said. “Our goal is
to be one of the biggest indepen-
dent third-party terminals with-
in a couple of years.”

Mr Huizer said the upgrade
programme has already started
to repair some of the oil tanks
that have remained dormant for
the past 20 years.

“We are spending $50 million
to reinstate about 2.5. million bar-
rels. We have started that, and
that will take us well into 2009,”
Mr Huizer said.

He added that Vopak plans to
spend another $55 million to
increase storage capacity by 2.8
million barrels during its Brown-
field Expansion Programme.

Mr Huizer said the project will
involve the construction of sev-
en new tanks — three of half a mil-
lion barrels capacity, and another
four able to store 330,000 barrels

plant

Mr Huizer said Vopak worked
with the major oil companies, and
was presently involved with 10
major clients.

He pointed out that Vopak
Europe Terminal, which is the
largest independent terminal in
the world, with 22 million barrels
storage capacity, is also in the
process of expansion.

Mr Huizer said Vopak Termi-
nal Bahamas was demolishing
and removing the refinery units
that closed in 1985.

He added that as terminal stor-
age capacity grows, it will have
to look at constructing additional
offshore jetties.

In terms of employment, Mr
Huizer said the company cur-
rently employs about 160 workers
and is actively seeking additional
Bahamians in key positions. He
noted that the company has
received some 700 applications
to date.

The Bahamas Entrepreneurial
Venture Fund’s chairman said
that the $1 million injection
received from government annu-
ally was adequate to meet the
fund’s financing needs for the
next 12 months, but thereafter
the need to attract private capital
was paramount.

“Bahamians do have a lot of
good ideas, but the management
expertise, savvy, is lacking,” Mr
Cunningham said.

“One of the things we see lack-

don’t have any capital or $1 to
put into their company.

for the fund to go with it.

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.

Understanding your feet



WHEN A foot requires medical
attention, footwear becomes a
factor-in the patient’s treatment,
recovery or rehabilitation.

































Summer sun
* protection for

SUN PROTECTION FOR

BABIES AND TODDLERS

CHILDREN need sunlight
but there must be a balance
‘between getting enough sun
and protecting your child
when they are outside from
the damaging effects of the
sun.

Pink cheeks on a baby look
adorable, but that glow is a
sign of sun damage no matter
how healthy it makes your
child look. This damage accu-
mulates every day throughout
childhood.

Sunlight triggers many
changes in the skin. Early
changes include suntan, sun-
burn, freckles, while late
changes include wrinkles, age
spots and looseness and sag-
ging of the skin. The most seri-
ous change of all is skin cancer
which can be deadly in some
cases. Ninety per cent of all
skin cancers arise from exces-
sive exposure to sunlight. In
fact, one blistering sunburn in
childhood can double a per-
son’s lifetime chances of
developing a serious form of
skin cancer.

OUTDOOR PRECAUTIONS

Your baby should have
fresh air and light but NOT
during the peak time of the
day. Schedule your baby’s
stroll for early morning or late
evening when the sun’s rays
are less powerful.

You should put on a sun hat
or bonnet with a wide brim
whenever the baby is outside.

When outside, find a
shady place for your baby if
possible.

Ensure your baby’s arms
and legs are covered by tight-
ly woven but loose fitting
clothing.

Ensure that the baby’s

“stroller/carriage provides ade-

quate shade with a hood.

CHOOSING A

SUNSCREEN

Look for SPR115 or greater.

Do a “patch test” by putting
a small amount of sunscreen
on the inside of your child’s
wrist to test for irritation or
allergies.

If an irritation or rash devel-
ops, try another product.

A cream or lotion sun-
screen may be better than an
alcohol-based or gel-based
product.

If the sunscreen is scented
and attracts insects, then try
unscented.

APPLYING SUNSCREEN

Sunscreens should NOT be
used on babies under six
months old. In fact, babies
under six months should be
exposed to the sun as little as
possible.

Apply the sunscreen as lib-
erally and evenly as possible.



What is so unique about
the human foot?. It is the
only foot in nature with a
heel bone that touches the
ground; that has a straight-
ahead big toe (instead of a

thumb-like) and that has an ~

arch. The foot has 26 bones.
A pair of feet has 52 bones,
which is more than one-
fourth of all the 206 bones of
the body. This is an indica-
tion of how important nature
regarded the foot when she
designed it.

Taking the structure of the
foot even further, there are
33 joints, and over 100 ten-
dons, muscles and ligaments.
That is an awful lot of places
for pain to occur. When a
foot requires medical atten-
tion, footwear becomes a
factor in the patient’s treat-
ment, recovery or rehabilita-
tion.

When appropriate, doctors
tefer patients to specialists
who are trained in pedor-
thics to address lower-limb-
related problems and
pathologies using footwear.

At a pedorthic facility,
trained pedorthists will fit
your feet with specially
designed inserts for your
particular foot shape and
condition. Trained staff also
have in-depth knowledge of
proper shoe selection and
modification for customers
who suffer from foot prob-

A CREAM or lotion
sunscreen may be
better than an
.alcohol-based or
gel-based product.

Rub in well. If your child is
squirmy, then apply the sun-
screen to your hand then rub
it in.

Apply at least 30 minutes
before going outside.

Sunscreen MUST be reap-
plied every two hours. If your
child is playing in the water
or sweating a lot, reapply
more often.

Ensure that you remember
to apply the sunscreen to the
ear, lips, and nose and around
the eyes.

Try using zinc oxide on
the nose and ears for extra
protection.

An SPF 15 lip balm should
be applied to the lips.and tod-
dlers may enjoy applying it
themselves.

UV blocking sunglasses will
protect the eye region which is
vulnerable.

Avoid putting baby oil on
the skin before going out-
doors, as this makes the skin
translucent. This then allows
more of the sun’s rays to pass
through.

THE human foot is a very complex
organ. In fact, there is no other foot
even closely like it in all nature.



fitted inserts and shoes, we
can reduce stress on the
joints and spine and promote

» proper posture and gait. The
spine will relax as the body:
reaches a healthy state of
ease and balance.

pains are often caused by the
style and fit of your shoes. A
supportive shoe, combined
with a proper orthotic
(insert), will put your foot in
its natural position for walk-
ing and standing. By putting
your foot in balance, the
alignment of other joints will
be improved. Properly
aligned joints mean less pain.
A foot specialist can assist |
you by providing properly
fitted shoes and inserts.
Many musculoskeletal
problems occur from poor
posture and faulty gait pat-
terns (improper walking).
Every day we receive con-
stant shocks to the joints and
spine from walking and
standing on hard, flat and
unyielding surfaces. This cre-
ates foot, ankle and leg prob-
lems and a stooped, passive
posture. Through properly

lems or pain associated with
prolonged standing.

These facilities are
designed to provide custom-
made orthotics (inserts),
extra-depth, therapeutic,
orthopaedic and fashionable
footwear which can be cus-
tom designed to fit your feet.

Trained pedorthists are
skilled at evaluating feet and
fitting footwear. After physi-
cians have determined what
kind of assistance your
footwear should provide for
you, a specialist can fill the
prescription.

What you wear on your
feet is the most important
part of foot care. For the
most part, foot problems are
caused or aggravated by
poorly fitted footwear. A

THE TRIBUNE



MCh ee”

TS SNACK TIME!

Provided by Adelma Penn, Camelta Barnes, Shandera Smith and Lathera Lotmore, Nutritionists from the Department of Public / Health Ministry of Health

WHO doesn’t love to munch on those tasty
delicious and mouth-watering fries, chips
and cookies? Taste great, don’t they?

But do you know that you can get the same deli-.
cious tastes without all the calories, sugar, salt and
fat and without adding extra pounds to your figure?
Oh yes, you can! Let's find out how, read on.

When you hear the word
snacks, what kinds of food do
you think of? Is it chips, cook-

ies, apples, carrot sticks, yogurt,

and chocolate? Well, you are
correct.

However, to promote good
health, we want you to choose
snack foods that are nutrient
dense (lots of nutrients and few
calories) rather than calorie
dense (few nutrients and lots of
calories).

Now schools are about to
open and this means that par-
ents will shop (or already
have!) not only for books, pen-
cils, uniforms and bags but also

for snack foods for their chil-
dren. And not only children are.
into the snacks, but grown ups,
too.

' Imagine it... Your stomach is
growling, but lunch is hours
away. You’re eyeing the cook-
ies on the counter or in your
desk drawer, but you know that
you'll feel guilty if you indulge.

THE BENEFITS OF SNACKS

Snacks aren’t necessarily
bad. In fact, mini-meals sever-
al times a day can be benefi-
cial. Here’s how:

Binge control. If eating sev-
eral low-fat whole-grain crack-

ers, a few pretzels, a piece of
fruit or some raw vegetables
keeps you from taking second
or third helpings at your next
meal, you may actually con-
sume fewer total calories for
the day.

Extra energy and nutrients.
Traditional, made-at-home
meals often lose out to busy
schedules. A grab-and-go
snack can be the difference
between some nourishment
and none at all.

Satisfaction for small
appetites. Young children’s
tiny stomachs can hold only
small portions of food at one
time. Older adults who are
less active and who burn fewer
calories also may feel more
comfortable eating smaller
meals more frequently.

PLANNING SNACKS

1. Use the dietary planning
principles — variety, modera-
tion and balance.

Ensure that the snacks are
low or moderate in sugar, fat
and salt serve a variety of
fruits, vegetables and whole

. grains serve age appropriate

serving sizes.

2. Have a scheduled snack
times. This should be at least
two hours after a meal.

3. Serve combination foods
for snacks. For example,
strawberries with yogurt or
dried fruits and nuts.

4. Serve a variety of foods to
satisfy different appetites:

Sweet: apple slices, grapes,
dilly, scarlet plums, mango.

Crispy: carrot sticks/baby
carrots, cucumber sticks,
sweet pepper strips, toast,
cereals with nuts.

Warmth: vegetable soup,
tomato soup.

Thirst: fruit smoothies, fruit
shakes, yogurt shakes, popsi-
cles.



CHOOSE HEALTHY SNACKS

Here are some of your best
snack picks:

Whole grains. Whole-grain
snacks are rich in fibre and
complex carbohydrates, which
give you energy that has some
staying power. Here are some
examples:

¢ COOKIES
(without icing and fillings)

¢ BAKED CHIPS
© MINI SIZED CHOCOLATE .

Remember, these are okay
once ina while, NOT EVERY
DAY! |

TIPS FOR PARENTS.
Set limits on the number of
sugary snacks allowed and
explain that they are treats and
not for every day...

Offer children a ‘arty of

healthy snacks as this will give
them the opportunity to make
their own choice and get them
in the practice of choosing
more healthy options.

Always have healthy snacks
in the home to decrease the
temptation of having unhealthy
ones.

Don’t give snacks too close
to meal times as this discour-
ages children from eating their
main meal, which leads to a

desire for.snacks later on.

Avoid soft drinks and other
sugary drinks, as they make fill
children feel full and may
therefore take the place of as
healthier snack.

Remember — snacks can be

_a great way to incorporate

more. fruit and.vegetables into

"your child's diet.




@ By SARAH SCHWEITZER

When Meredith White was expecting
her first son, nothing terrified her quite
like a visit to Babies “R” Us. Aisle after
dizzying aisle of baby paraphernalia

beckoned, with dozens of varieties of |

bottles, nipples, wipes (and their warm-
ers), pacifiers, cribs, strollers, and bibs.
She did not want to buy anything with-
out first assessing safety, usefulness,
and developmental appropriateness.
The analysis led the 34-year-old lawyer
to a state verging on despair.

“It was overwhelming,” said White,
who lives in Stow, Mass. with her hus-
band. “I would try to cram all the
research in on weekends, but there was
never enough time.”

Cue the Baby Coordinators, the lat-
est entry in the burgeoning “baby plan-
ning” field that helps expectant parents
prepare for a new baby by advising on
everything from the most absorbent
diapers and sleekest strollers to deco-
rating a nursery and readying a pet. For
a fee of $250, Kristén DiCicco of Natick,
a Baby Coordinators cofounder, walked
White through Babies “R” Us. She
offered the pros and cons of products,
and when White left the store, she had
a baby registry list and peace of mind.

As a growing number of older
women - many professionals, with dis-

‘posable income - join the ranks of
bulging bellies, pregnancy has acquired
a slew of luxurious accoutrements.
There are prenatal spa treatments, per-
sonal pregnancy chefs, prebaby vacation
packages known as “babymoons,”
“push presents” given to a mother to
reward her for carrying and delivering a
baby, prepacked hospital bags contain-
ing items like a hard-cover journal and
breath mints, and now, baby planning -
a kind of full-flight concierge service
for the pregnant.

Baby planning first surfaced in Eng-
land and on the West Coast, in Los
Angeles and Portland, Ore., two years
ago as a variation on the concept of
wedding planning. It has caught on in
other cities, including Boston, where
two start-ups were launched in the last

AVON Wy FMA YD) eR TTEN ENS 8S seortgt

Easing parent-to-
be overload

year by women who say the market is
ripe for their services.

“A baby is so important - so ‘wouldn’ t
you want someone to assist you with
all the research you need to do to get
ready?” said Sandee Tisdale, 29, a social
worker who cofounded Perfecting
Expecting, of the Back Bay. Skeptics
say that baby planning promotes the
commercialization of parenting and the
belief that parenting can be perfected
with products or bought advice, rather
than with reliance on intuition and the
advice of family and friends.

“That’s part of the commercialized
culture: You can’t do this yourself, you
need experts,” said Susan Linn, a psy-
chologist at the Judge Baker Children’s
Center, a Harvard Medical School affil-
iate in Boston’s Mission Hill, who has
studied the effects of marketing on par-
ents and children.

Linn said employing a baby planner
robs parents of the opportunity to learn
to make choices on behalf of a child.

“Part of getting ready for a baby is
having the experience of making deci-
sions that are going to affect someone
else, a child you love,” Linn said.

For Emily Carines, 32, a massage

_ therapist from Brighton, the prospect of

navigating pregnancy and parenthood,
and the ever-growing number of prod-
ucts that now accompany the journey
was daunting.

“Being someone who hasn’t really
been around babies or kid products, I
just didn’t know what to choose,”
Carines said, whose family is in South
Carolina. “I was overwhelmed by the
little things - which toys to buy, which
are developmentally helpful.”

Her baby planner, DiCicco,
proved instrumental on more
than the toy front, she said.
DiCicco helped her choose ;
a diaper pail, opting for a
brand that does not
require special bags -
something Carines hopes
will be a money- and has-
sle-saver.

For other women, the
clincher is the time sav-

ings that baby planners offer.

“To be a really good mom, you want
to pick the best for your baby, and that
takes a while,” said Erica Aguilar, 29, of
Framingham, who works in the mer-
chandising division for TJX Compa-
nies Inc. and said she came across hun-
dreds of baby product reviews online. “I

‘could have spent hours and hours read-

ing. ... I didn’t want to have to read
them all myself.”

So she hired a baby planner.

“It was worth every penny,” Aguilar
said.

Boston-area baby planners say their
clients are working women, in their late
20s to mid 30s. Most look for help
putting together baby registries and
baby-proofing their homes, but a num-
ber of other services are offered, includ-
ing “babymoon” planning, daddy
preparation, and readying birth
announcements.

Perfecting Expecting charges $100
for baby registry consultation and $500
for putting together a complete reg-
istry, $100 for help maternity shopping
and $500 for baby shower preparation.
The Baby Coordinators charge $250 to
compile a baby registry, $300 to arrange
and set up a nursery, and $200 to baby-
proof a home.

DiCicco, of the Baby Coordinators,
who is not a mother, and her partner,
Paula Spurling, a mother of two, said

they learned about baby arrival prepa-
ration from working at day-care cen-
ters and as nannies.

Tisdale, of Perfecting Expecting, and
her partner, Kristen Parker, research
operations manager for Harvard Med-
ical Schoo!’s pathology department, nei-
ther of whom have children, said they
watched pregnant friends struggle to

’ make sense of the array of baby prod- °.

ucts, realized there was a market for
offering expertise, and then burrowed
into research.

“] thought if one person had all the
knowledge,” it would save everyone
“so much time,” Tisdale said.

Both companies have partnerships
with baby-product companies. The
Baby Coordinators receive 10 percent
of the sale proceeds from clients they
send to two companies, Your Bags Are
Packed and Baby-Strong, DiCicco said.
Perfecting Expecting has business part-
ners that give discounts to clients, and
those companies send business to Per-
fecting Expecting, Tisdale said.

Carolyn McLoughlin, 28, a therapist
who lives in Brookline, said that after
watching a friend spend 30 hours
researching strollers, she decided she
would go the baby-planning route.

“We wanted to put a lot of thought |
into adding a new family member, but
we didn’t have the time,” McLoughlin
said. “Also, I don’t like shopping.”

What do you want to be known for?

“Unless you deliberately decide what
you want, you will end up with what
you get.”

Michelle M. Miller

BEING deliberate

about your
approach to life is an
incredibly empowering
experience. It is a way of
boldly stepping to the
music that beats within
your own heart, even if
those around you don’t
quite understand. This is
the art of living the life you
were born fo live.



Sadly, most people have no idea
what this experience is like, having

bought a manufactured lifestyle, driven
solely by external validations. What lies

beneath such facades is the relatively
empty shell that amounts to what they
become known for or the remnants of
what they leave behind.

There are countless stories of infight-

ing over material possessions left
behind by parents or loved ones, even-
tually resulting in family members los-
ing sight of the possible good qualities
their loved one ‘Tay have been ‘known
for’.
Hearing about such sad tragedies

makes you wonder which is better — to

have infighting and be known only for
the ‘things’ you leave behind or to
leave no material things but be known
for the humble qualities that you pos-
sessed.

I suppose that, considering today’s
money-oriented perspective, some may
say that you have a ‘responsibility’ to
leave some form of worldly possessions
for your loved ones, even if it serves to
build hate rather than love.

Such quandary certainly lends value
to the notion to be deliberate about
what you want to be known for.
Because the reality is whether you
decide to be deliberate or not, you are
in fact leaving your footprints wherever
you go.

So, if you could only be known for
one thing, what would it be? Here are a
few thoughts for your consideration:-

Will you be known for:-
Contributing or complaining?
Healing or hurting?
Accepting or rejecting?
Empathy or apathy?

Building up or tearing down?
Adding or depleting value?
Solving or creating problems?
Optimist or pessimist?
Growing or shrinking?
Standing tall or playing small?

IT ALL BEGINS ©
‘WHEN YOU DECIDE

Nothing will change until you
change.

Regardless of your circumstances,
you possess the inherent power to
transform your life and the life of those
you encounter. But it will only begin

when you decide.

Too many ignore the need to discern
the real purpose for which they were
created; busy buying into the illusion
that life is only for the acquisition of
things.

And as it is in their waking moments,

so it is upon their departure. They are

known only for the ‘small’ things in life,

such as the enormous house they own,
the grandiose car they drove, the pres-
tigious titles they held or the exclusive
groups to which they belong.

While these things may hold some
value, seeking to partake in the loftier
goal of life (which is to enrich the
expansion of life itself) requires that
you swim below the surface.

I encourage you make a personal
commitment to become known for
more than mere things. Instead be

. known for the lives you touch, the

hurts you heal, the smiles you shared,
the gratitude you express and the
greatness you inspire.

Remember — you entered into this
world with nothing and you will leave
this earth with nothing.

Today is the perfect day; make up
your mind to make something better
happen.

IT’S IMPORTANT for pregnant women to be true to their own style and wear clothes that uplift them and
make them feel good about being pregant.



Staying

m@ By JEFFARAH GIBSON

YES, there is the unpleas-
ant feeling of morning sick-
ness, nausea and extreme
fatigue, but should oestrogens
and progesterones keep
women from staying fashion-
able during their first, second

_and third trimesters of preg-

nancy.
Most women regard fashion
during pregnancy as non-exis-
tent and exclude it from their
daily lives. The horrible feel-
ings they experience during
their pregnancy sometimes
hinder their inner fashion.
Monique Wilson, 27, insur-
ance worker, said that she has
been pregnant for six months

and it was difficult for her to -

stay fashionable.
“In the beginning, I never
really cared that much about

. my appearance. The morning

fashionable —
while pregnant |

tant women not to look their
best in those nine months.

Monique Wilson said it’s
important for pregnant women
to look good, especially if they
have husbands. “Pregnant
women should try to look
great at every opportunity,
especially if you have. a hus-
band or are living with a
boyfriend® You don’t want
your husband or boyfriend to
become unattracted to you
since you gained a few extra
pounds. So we must continue
to keep ourselves looking fab-
ulous.”

Looking good during preg-
nancy can influence the way
an expectant woman feels. It’s
okay to take your fashion
statement up a notch. Preg-
nant women should revolu-
tionise their hair and change
the style up a bit and rid them-
selves of their uniformed look.

Another expectant mother,



Most women regard fashion
during pregnanacy as non-existent
and exclude it from their aay lives.



sickness had me stricken, I

- never felt like doing anything

really. But after a while I

realised that I should not let ,

myself go and that I should
not look how I felt.”

There are many ways preg-
nant women can stay ravish-
ing during their trimesters.
There are a variety of mater-
nity stores located in Nassau
that cater to women of all
Sizes.

Pregnancy with Elegance,
located on Mount: Royal
Avenue, is a maternity store
that offer maternity apparel
for all occasions, including
career, formal and church
wear. With maternity clothing
available to pregnant women
there is no reason for éxpec-

Agata Duncanson, 34, wait-

ress, said she has been fash-
ion-savvy during her seven
months of pregnancy. She said
she sometimes experiments
with her maternity wardrobe.

“Before I became pregnant I
wore very, light colours but
now that I have a big, rounded
belly I usually stick with dark
shades since they make you
look a little bit slim.”

The rules of fashion can be
broken at any time. It’s impor-

‘tant for pregnant women to be

true to their own style and
wear clothes that uplift them
and make them feel good
about being pregnant.

So if you are satisfied with
hot pink or ruby red, its your
prerogative!

‘WOMEN, usually slgeiaoe

fortunes in their efforts to
stay ravishing.

This may include ensuring that the clothing
they wear not only fits perfectly but accentuates ‘
their figure.

While wearing nicely fitting clothes is of con-
siderable importance, obsessing about how the
hair looks is of a greater concern.

Bahamian psychologist Frances Farmer says:
“In society women are valued for the way they

The more insecure they feel about how they

Call for alternative model
for Abaco developments

@ By MEGAN REYNOLDS
Tribune Staff Reporter

CONSERVATIONISTS concerned about the damaging envi-
ronmental impact of 14 developments approved for Abaco are
calling on government to consider an alternative model that will
both feed the economy and preserve the island's natural habitat.

Abaco is home to the third largest population and third largest
economy in the country, and therefore pressure is building to pro-
vide jobs for Bahamians in the area.

But as developers push through applications to build second

Judge orders hotel union

of the executive council »

A SUPREME Court judge has ordered that the Bahamas
Hotel Catering and Allied Workers Union pay backpay to mem-
bers of the union’s executive council on or before Friday.

The order by Justice Neville Adderley is the latest development
in a continuing court battle between members of the BHCAWU
executive council and Roy Colebrook, union president; Basil
McKenzie, treasurer, Leo Douglas, secretary general, and Sandra
Ferguson, financial controller. |

On Monday Justice Adderley ordered that the union pay eight
members of the union’s executive council on or before Friday at
4 pm.

The infighting between these two groups is rooted in allegations
brought against Messrs Colebrook, Douglas and McKenzie by
members of the executive council who allege misappropriation of
union funds.

In a previous order, Justice Adderley barred Mr Colebrook
from signing any union cheques or “otherwise disposing of or dis-
sipating the assets of the union.”

Executives, including those who oppose Mr Colebrook, were
at the same time ordered to act in “good faith” with him.

The executive council members, the plaintiffs in, the court
action, allege that they have not been paid their salaries and
allowances in three or four months in some cases.

rices On The Island’

in brief Members of new sroup running for BPSU

‘positions say Pinder ‘needs to step aside’



@ By LLOYD ALLEN



WITH the Bahamas Public Ser-
vice Union set to hold its elections
in September, members of a new
group running for executive posi-
tions say incumbent president John
Pinder “has maximized his poten-
tial” and “needs to step aside and
allow a new breed to take the

‘ helm.”

An email sent to The Tribune on
Monday by Eagle Team member
Michael Stubbs, included numer-
ous concerns purportedly relayed
to the group by members of BPSU.

-Among the estimated 5,000
members in what is the second
largest union in the nation, the
issue of ever increasing dues has
come up time and time again
according to Mr Stubbs.

He claims many members who

work in various ministries and gov-

ernment agencies have decided to

leave because union dues have

rae from $10 back in 2005, to
25.

Construction

The Eagle Team says members
are also disgruntled about the fact
that Mr Pinder has decided to
break ground for the construction
of a new BPSU Hall.

Although according to Mr Pin-
der, the union’s board thinks now
is the best time to begin construc-

tion of the new building, Mr

Stubbs says numerous members
feel the move is untimely.

He said the building should not
be built until the controversy over
the union’s medical plan is

resolved.

Mr Stubbs claimed in his email
that the medical plan is not accept-
ed by Doctors Hospital and is con-
sidered high risk by other private
doctors.

However Mr Pinder has
repeatedly denied that there
are any problems with the
plan.

Objections

The union leader has said that
any objections or disagreements
about the plan are the result of a
lack of understanding about
the issue on the part of its detrac-
tors.

With the union’s elections set to
take place in September, the Eagle
Team members say they are confi-
dent that change will come in the
form of a new executive body.

THE board of the Bahamas
Hotel and Allied Industries
Health and Welfare Benefits
Fund is undertaking an “historic”
health programme which it says
will set-the standard for other
institutions to follow.

The board of trustees says the
programme will be free of charge
to the fund’s 10,000 members.

Hugh Sands, chairman of the
board, launched the “Well on
Your Weigh” programme, to be
facilitated by The Jemi Wellness
Centre, on Friday.

Mr Sands said that while the
Bahamas is considered one of the
most successful small countries in
the world, there is much to be
desired in terms of lifestyle choic-
es that affect overall health.

“Just a few years ago, we
became concerned.that members
of the hotel industry, like many of
their fellow Bahamians, were
falling far short of even the most
modest ideals of wellness.

WEIGHING IN ON HEALTH: Hugh Sails praia Bahamas Hotel and Allied induedtes Health and Welfare Ben-
efits Fund, revealed statistics about the rate of obesity among hotel workers. At his far left is Roy Colebrooke,
trustee and president of the Bahamas Hotel, Catering and Allied Workers Union, in the rear is Louie Dames, direc-
_tor, and to the right is J Barrie Farrington, trustee and president of Bahamas Hotel Employers Association.

“A survey of 2,945 hotel
employees, conducted between
2003-2004, showed that 80 per

cent of this group had a body

mass index greater than 25, which

means that they were overweight, :

42.7 per cent were moderately
obese, and 8.8 per cent were
severely obese.

“Women led the way with
almost 47 per cent of them being
moderately to severely obese as
compared to 33.6 per cent of men
in the same situation,” said Mr
Sands.

The preventable and lifestyle
conditions that Bahamians suffer
from through unhealthy eating
habits and obesity include dia-

- betes, hypertension, high choles-

terol and heart disease.

The Jemi Wellness Programme
is already in progress with partic-
ipating employees.

One of the trustees of the

. board, J Barrie Farrington, stated

that this new programme will not
only benefit participants, but their
families and the entire nation, as

“Our idea here is to improve
the quality of life to enable
employees to change their way
of life; in respect of nutrition, exer-
cise, rest and taking care of them-
selves. The health statistics we
have now could be reduced for
the better or substantially elimi-
nated. This is an historic occasion;
it will be a platform for other
organisations to follow because
it is a problem of health that is

persistent in the country. I’m con- ©

vinced that we’re going to save
many lives through this wellness
programme,” said Mr Farrington.
President of Jemi Wellness
Centre, Nurse Janette Isaacs, out-
lined the format of the wellness
programme which includes health
screening, coaching, fitness ses-
sions and health seminars.
There will be individualised
plans for participating employ-
ees; they will have access to satel-

- lite gyms throughout New Provi-

dence including Mystical Fitness,

“The employee’s health coach

them on a weekly basis, will call
them and check to see if they are

_ on point with their goals. Once a
month we are going to re-screen
those persons in the programme;
at that monthly screening we will
have an educational seminar
where employees will be able to

Isaacs.

Nurse Isaacs explained that
there is a sustaining part of the

Nobel Laureate
warns against
foreign exploitation

NOBEL Laureate Derek
Walcott has warned the
Caribbean region against for-
eign investors who do not facil-
itate or create opportunities for
cultural development.

Speaking at the opening of
the CARIFESTA X Symposia
yesterday, at the Guyana Inter-
national Convention Centre, the
recipient of the 1992 Nobel
Prize for Literature contended
that the Caribbean was being
rapidly exploited under the
guise of development, and
implored CARICOM govern-
ments to strike a balance in an
effort to avoid “prostituting
themselves to foreign investors.”

Mr Walcott asserted that the
region should encourage
investors to put money into the
development of cultural infra-
structure such as museums and
theatres so that the region could
be proud of the legacy it leaves
for its children.

‘... all Iam saying is that
when the investors offer to build
hotels, you need to say, you can
build your hotel but you also
need to build a museum or a
theatre,” he said.

Using his own country as an
example, the Saint Lucian born
poet and playwright condemned
the proposed bridging of his
native island’s twin volcanic
peaks, the Pitons, as a “terrify-
ing obscenity of greed.”

He said although it might be
legal, it would leave a gaping
wound on the Pitons.:

Derek Walcott’s statements
were preceded by a panel pre-
sentation by literary giants Dr
Ian McDonald, Professor David
Dabydeen, Professor Kenneth
Ramchand, Professor Edward
Baugh and Cynthia McLeod, all
of whom spoke on the topic:
Caribbean Culture At the
Crossroads: Seeking the Past,
Living the Present, Exploring
the Future.

Also expressing strong reser-
vations about the relevance and
purpose of the Caribbean Fes-
tival of Arts, Mr Walcott inti-
mated that there was little to
celebrate as many artists were
living in a state of deprivation.
He made an impassioned plea
for stronger support of artists
in the region, particularly in the
form of providing access to
more scholarships for younger
artists

“You are killing our artists
and then celebrating it!” he
exclaimed.

The poet’s statements were
later challenged by Guyana
President Bharrat Jagdeo, him-
self an economist. While
acknowledging that CARICOM
governments needed to sustain
the development of culture,
President Jagdeo argued that it

must be viewed in the context of

the plethora of harsh economic
challenges facing leaders.

The president, who officially
opened the ceremony yester-
day, enumerated the contribu-
tions of artists to the region as

well as the positive impact of

culture in economic develop-
ment.

However he also acknowl-
edged that sustaining those
achievements was a challenge
fox the region especially in the
face of harsh economic realities.

Bah

amas ‘wide open’

for firearm smuggling:

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

THE Bahamas is a “wide
open” country for firearm smug-
gling, police intelligence indicates,
Acting Commissioner of Police
Reginald Ferguson aad yester-
day.

However, Mr Fereison said
that while the police acknowledge
that it is a great challenge to free
the country’s streets of illegal
guns, they do not believe they are
fighting a “losing battle.”

Speaking as a guest on the
Love 97 radio talk show Jones
and Co yesterday, he said that
any type of ammunition and ille-
gal firearm can be found in the
Bahamas, including grenades and
high-powered rifles.

He pointed out, however, that
in the history of the country’s law

enforcement, police never found
a firearm manufacturer or a
gun factory anywhere in the
Bahamas.

When asked if he believed that
Bahamian police were “up to
scratch” in the ongoing fight
against illegal firearms, Acting
Commissioner Ferguson said
there is always room for improve-
ment in anything the police do.

Proactive

He added, however, that the
police had been very proactive in
capturing guns and stopping ille-
gal firearms from entering the
country.

Mr Ferguson said the police’s
intelligence work was not limited
to the Bahamas, but extended to
sources outside of the country as
well.

“We are a part of global net-
works,” :he said.

“We are in co-operation with
different countries in terms of
sharing information and tracking
down firearms.

“But you have to take into con-
sideration that the Bahamas is
a wide open country, (we)
know this from some of the intel-
ligence.

“That’s the facts, that’s what
the intelligence allows us to say,”
he said.

While the police’s intelligence
is greatly aiding police in remov-
ing firearms from the streets, Mr
Ferguson admitted this it not a
“cure-all” forthe problem.

“We are highly vulnerable to
that kind of thing because of our
geographic location and (the
country’s) exposure and connec-
tions (to other countries).

“The Bahamas cannot control

‘All in place’ for new school year

LLOYD ALLEN



WITH public schools set to
reopen Monday, Education
Minister Carl Bethel said all is in
place for the start of the new school

year.

The minister said for the nearly 160
schools throughout the nation, many
i of the major renovation plans have

-. been completed, but there is always

work to be done.

Last week there was a report of van-
dalism at a.new junior high school in
? Freeport, which was to open for this
: school year.
’ Referring to the incident as “an act of md
sabotage,” Mr Bethel said that although
there are some people obviously

opposed to the achievements of the

government and students, it was vital for his min-
istry to continue its effort of improving
the educational experience for Bahamian

students.

According to the minister, other ongoing projects
include additions to various schools and the con-
struction of new schools in communities throughout

the country.

One such school is A F Adderley, which, he said,
will have the addition of 15 classrooms and a new

administration block.

The minister said major works will also continue for

experiencing severe problems with their
sewer systems.

Earlier in the month the minister
announced that, upon completion of T
G Glover school, students from sur-
rounding schools and communities
would be brought in to make up the
enrolment and help reduce over-
crowding. Included in the: recruiting
process would be students from Wood-
cock Primary, Mable Walker and Nao-
mi Blatch.

“The prime minister has anndheed
that, upon the sale of Batelco, whenev-
er that should occur, he had the goal to
see that we begin the process of recon-
stituting a number of the older schools
in the Bahamas...that need to be total-
ly replaced,” said the minister.

Slated for replacement are C C

The Tribune yesterday that although it is fair to say

concerned, his school is prepared for reopening Mon-

Supreme Court.

Michelle Lloyd was on trial for

The incident reportedly took
place in October, 2003.

According to evidence pro-

Mr Ferguson said this was not
an excuse, but just the reality of
the situation.

feel overwhelmed by the firearms
problem and that his officers dai-
ly rise to the challenge of finding

China hosts spectacular Olympics

CONGRATULATIONS a are in order for the
Bahamas’ Olympic team, ‘especially for the
men’s 4x400 relay team, which had Bahamians
cheering lustily for their “boys” as they fought

for second place behind the Americans to bring -

back the Bahamas’ first Olympic'relay medal.
In fact with only two medals, a silver and a
’ bronze, the Bahamas once again— for its third
Olympiad — has retained its first place title as
the country with the most m dals per capita in
the world, while the US wi > most medals —
100 — placed 46th in the pe Apita count. Chi-
na with the most gold medsly was 68th in that
count.
But what mattered even ttiore than medals

was the spirit of the games, a spirit that for 16

days showed that the people of the world can
work together, compete-on friendly terms and
enjoy each others compariy,

In thanking the: athletes as a spectacular
event came to an’ énd, International Olympic
Committee President Jacques Rogge described
them as real role models. “Yu have shown us
the unifying power of sporty” he said: “The
Olympic spirit lives in the: warm embrace of
competitive rivals from nations in conflict. Keep
that spirit alive when you ‘retiirn ponte.

But the greatest praise goes to China, the
host country. The Chineserdisplayed brilliant
imagination, putting on a stufiting show that will
be difficult, if not impossible; for ture Games

to rival. In the words of Presitlent Rogge, they:

were “truly exceptional games,” Through these
Games, he said, “the world learned more about
China, and China’ learhed mote about the
world.”

China was obviously a proud host that found
its best red carpet: to:ptit down to welcome the

world. By opening its doors it displayed its cul-

ture, its discipline; ‘aiid’ the digiity, cleverness
and beauty of its, people: However, what was
most remarkable was how the Chinese cheered
for athletes from other countries and seemed to
take genuine delight:in’ ‘their tritmphs. They
were indeed. magnanimous hosts.

“If you think, of:China 20. years ago,” said
Germany’s deputy foreigri ministry spokesman,
“nothing of the sort would have been possible.
Thousands of journalists were in China, report-
ed about China. I think it.can ‘be said that the
Olympic Games made a Positive: contribution to
the future of China.”

China has received much ctiticism from the
West. We cannot say that it has not been
deserved, but China is changing, it is gradually
opening itself to the world. However, it is doing
so at its own steady pace.

“China is a big country,”
sador to the Bahamas. ‘Hi

fecently. “It’s like a large ship that you have to
turn and manoeuvre carey so that it does
not capsize.”

We could appreciate where he was coming
from when we recalled the fall of the Shah of
Iran, who tried to force reform too quickly on a
country culturally not yet ready for it.

A Newsweek article that asked — What dri-

~ ves China? — concluded that it was “the roots

of a national inferiority complex.” Ifit takes the
impetus of an inferiority complex to drive a
country to excel, then more should acquire such
complexes. China in showing its best face con-
centrated on its history, its beauty, taking man
to the heights of great achievements.

For us the only jarring note in the whole
games was the handover ceremony to Great
Britain, which will host the Games in the next
four years.

“A turn to the bizarre as London handed
Olympic mantle” was the way one reporter
described the arrival of a double- decker Lon-
don bus on centre stage. In our opinion the
whole scene would have been better described
as “depraved.” Next to such spectacular beauty
it symbolised the degradation of western society.

' The Olympic flag was handed by China Pres-
ident Hu Jintao back to Olympic Committee
President Rogge who in turn passed it on to
London Mayor Boris Johnson. Monsieur Rogge
and President Hu Jintao looked elegant as they
strode with dignity down the steps from the’
dais.

They walked erect with coats buttoned. They °
were followed by a lumbering Boris Johnson,
coat flapping open, hands in pockets.

All we can say is that at least on this occasion
he remembered to comb his usually all-over-the-
place shock of blond hair. He looked like an
uncomfortable London yabbo dropped in their
midst.

As for the London bus with humanity, like a
bunch of worms, crawling all over it and a thick-
legged singer, claimed to be the current rage of
London, and an aging guitarist in a rakish out-

fit strumming out “Whole Loota Love” — it.

was like falling from the grandeur of a Mount
Olympus into the pits of Dante’s inferno.
In one sad flash we could sympathise with an

Islamic world that wants to close its doors to the -

crudeness of the West.
We hope that this is not a sad omen of how a

_once great nation — turned sadly into a “Cool

Britannia” — will display its decline and fall in
2012.

For us it was the only embarrassing moment
of the whole games — it let down a glorious flag
that once flew over an empire on whom at one

' time the sun never set.

causing the lives of persons.

If they are not putting on

phone while driving, what is
it that they are doing? Noth-

They are doing while dri-

on like they are in some kind
of race and causing major acci-

They are always trying to

traffic; there is no place to go!
They think they can come out
ofa corner quicker than any
oncoming car.

As simple as being on the
highway, it’s like a racetrack,
and they think that everyone
on the highway is trying to
race with them when we’re
minding our own business.

Men drivers are just simply
insane and speed happy.
Though us women might
cause minor accidents by

' putting on makeup or being

on the cell phone, the acci-
dents caused are very minor
and a majority of the time

only affects us, not resulting
in death either. Yes we might
run over someone’s foot, or
drive our own car into a wall,
but we hardly ever kill or par-
alyze anyone.

What is it that the men.are
doing while driving that they
end up knocking over light
poles, flipping their cars over
four and five times killing the
passenger, overtaking and
causing dangerous collisions.

What is it? All I can say is,
no matter what it is that the
woman may be doing while
driving, we do it as slowly as
possible and/or with caution.
Thus, resulting in very minor

The Bahamas Journal’s editorials
praising Cuba turn my stomach

EDITOR, The Tribune.

The Bahamas’ standard of

living reflects the effect of free ,

trade and a relatively limited
government.

Although | government
keeps expanding, to the detri-
ment of all taxpayers, citizens
here are still far better off than
in many countries in the
region and the world.

However, every now and
then The Bahama Journal edi-
torialises about the virtues of

the Cuban regime. And
_ frankly this turns my stomach.

In their editorial of Satur-

day, August, 16, 2008, they

crow about the fact that they
recently learned that, "A key
United Nations human rights
body on Monday appointed

. as its chairman for the next

three years a Cuban law pro-
fessor who has been a senior
diplomat for the Havana gov-

ernment and a spokesman for .

its foreign ministry."
Throughout the editorial

they try desperately to con-

vey that the way of life in



Cuba was greatly improved by
the so-called Revolution.

If the Revolution was
intended to deprive Cubans
of property rights, the ability
to leave and return to Cuba
at their will, their ability to
vote for the party of their
choice, or freely speak their
mind, Castro and his hench-
men succeeded far beyond
even their wildest dreams.

Further, according to the
babalu blog, there is only one
promise that Castro kept after
his famous march into Havana

on that fateful day of January |

8, 1959.

However, five of the impor-
tant promises he has not et
posted
babalublog.com (http: eet

abalublog.com/archives/00550
Of De es is St
rchives/005506.html> are:

A) “I will lead the country
to economic and cultural

progress without sacrificing

individual freedoms.
B) “There is little room in
Cuba for communist ideas.”

C) Cuban rebels didn’t
preach class war.

D) Promise to restore the
Constitution of 1940

E) The promise. of.free
elections

For a local newspaper to
support the Castro regime in
this manner is shameless.

The "Journal" often prints
derogatory stories about The
Bahamas government, and
they are free to do so.

But if they operated in
Cuba, they would not dare
print any negative things
about the Revolutionary gov-
ernment.

But what am I saying?

The owners of the Bahama
Journal, or anyone else for
that matter, can't own a pri-
vate newspaper or radio sta-
tion in Cuba.

But some facts are just too
inconvenient to mention for
those that support the regime
in Cuba.

‘NO evi

dence’ to suggest third

‘party involved in hanging death

@ By TANEKA THOMPSON
Tribune Staff Reporter
tthompson@tribunemedia.net

THE investigation into the hanging
death of 11-year-old Devante McPhee
is still open but police say there is no
evidence to suggest the boy's injuries
may have been inflicted by a third par-
ty.

Authorities said they are still fol-
lowing "lines of inquiry" into the events
that led to the boy's death.

Police have classified his death as
"accidental" pending the results of an
autopsy.

"The investigation is open and we
have to follow the lines of inquires and
so we haven't found anything at this
stage to suggest that somebody else
might have done it to him.

Authorities following
‘lines of enquiry’



" As it stands now, we haven't found
anything at this stage to suggest that
his injuries were inflicted or caused by
the assistance of some other persons, '
assistant commissioner in charge of
crime Raymond Gibson told The Tri-
bune yesterday.

Mr Gibson made these comments in
response to information reaching The
Tribune that young Devante may have
been playing some sort of "hanging
game" with two other boys when he
died.

Last week, the East Street commu-
nity was left in shock after grandmoth-

er Melina Rolle found Devante's life- -

less body hanging from a post in their
backyard. The young boy had his broth-
er's belt around his neck and a chair
next to his body, according to earlier
reports.

She said she had just returned home
from grocery shopping and had left her
grandson playing in the backyard.

"When I get back from the food
store, (Devante's) mother tell me to

go call him, but I didn't get an answer.
When I came out back here to get the
garbage I saw him hanging there," she
told a Tribune reporter on the scene
as she pointed to. the clothesline post
next to a rusty chair.

Family and friends, who were over-
come: with grief, described Devante as
a "good child" involved in extra-cur-
ricular activities. ,

They do not believe he would have
killed himself.

"It was a freak accident, he was play-
ing. He was always playing by himself
like that, always adventurous," Devan-
te's adopted aunt Debbie Ferguson said
at the family's home on Honeycomb
Street.

A 2008 graduate of Woodcock Pri-
mary School, Devante was due to start
junior high at CC Sweeting next month.

FREEPORT -— A $50-million refur-
bishment project is underway to restore
2.5 million barrels of oil storage capacity
at the former BORCO plant in Freeport,
it was announced yesterday

First Reserve Corporation and Royal
Vopak NV (Vopak) - which acquired all
the shares in the Bahamas Oil Refining
Company International Ltd in April 2008
— provide storage of petroleum products
for major oil clients around the world.

The company now operates as Vopak
Terminal Bahamas, and a new sign has

mer BORCO plant on West Sunrise
Highway. :

T J Huizer, managing director at
Vopak, held a press conference yesterday
to inform the media of its plans in
Freeport.

He announced that the company will
invest well over a quarter of a billion
dollars, which will cover the refurbish-
ment of old tanks and two expansion
projects for the construction of new
tanks. Mr Huizer said that all of the facil-
ity’s existing tank space is being used by
clients. He noted that the site can now
hold 20 million barrels, but that tanks
able to hold an additional five million
barrels are out of service.

“Our clients are crying for more space

BRerey Van ae

Om project to restore oil

and they are relying on Vopak,” he said.
“Our goal is to be one of biggest inde-
pendent third party terminals within a
couple of years.”

Mr Huizer said that refurbishment has
already started with the repair some of
the oil tanks that have remained dor-
mant for 20 years.

“We are spending $50 million to rein-
state about 2.5 million barrels. We have
started that and that will take us well
into 2009,” he said.

According to the executive, Vopak
plans to spend $55 million to increase
storage capacity by additional 2.8 mil-
lion barrels during its Brownfield Expan-
sion Programme.

He said the project will involve the



IULUVAT, AYVUYUS! 20, CUUO, FAUL /

construction of seven new tanks — three
1/2 million barrels and four 330,000 bar-
rels. Mr Huizer’stated that the Green-
field Expansion Programme is more
extensive and will result in an investment
of $250 to $300 million.

He revealed that they are looking to
build an additional 24 to 26 new tanks,
which will have a total capacity of six
million barrels.

“We have a large piece of land which is
part of our lease. That land has basically
been unused for years and we are cur-
rently evaluating to construct a new tank
park in that area — it is under review,” he
said. Mr Huizer said Vopak is a world
leader and works with major oil compa-
nies. They are presently involved with

10 major clients. He pointed out that
Vopak Europe Terminal, which is the
largest independent terminal with 22 mil-
lion barrels storage capacity, is also in
the process. of expansion. Mr Huizer
said that Vopak Terminal Bahamas is
also demolishing and removing the refin-
ery units at BORCO which closed in
1985.

He also noted as terminal storage
capacity grows, the company will have
to look at constructing additional off-
shore jetties. Mr Huizer said that the
company currently employs about 160
workers and is actively seeking additional
Bahamians in key positions.

He noted that the company has
received some 700 applications to date.

the message as he addressed the
graduation ceremony for New
Entry 45 at the HMBS Coral
Harbour base this weekend.

Mr Symonette admonished the
52 marines to render “patriotic
and exemplary service” as they
protect the country’s 100,000
square nautical miles.

“Your accomplishment is built
on the commitment you made,
and which you have kept. It is
built on the demands made of
you, which you have met. It is
built on the sacrifices you made
and the challenges you confront-
ed head on,” he said.

New entry training is an inten-
sive marine recruit training pro-
gramme designed to develop and
improve leadership potential, pro-
fessional skills, academic stan-
dards and physical fitness among
young recruits entering the regu-
lar force. New entry training con-
sists of 16 core subjects conducted
over a period of 16 weeks, accord-
ing to the Defence Force.

Training includes: Defence
Force rules and regulations, mar-
itime law enforcement, coastal
navigation, small arms, survival
at sea, rules of the road (for mar-
itime traffic), parade drills, land
and sea expedition.

The Royal Bahamas Defence
Force mission statement is: “To
become a self-sufficient, multi
mission maritime organisation
with the operational capacity to
respond to threats to national
security, as well as perform
humanitarian tasks inclusive of
maritime search and rescue, dis-
aster relief assistance, and peace-
keeping in co-operation with
regional partners.”

In this vein, Mr Symonette
underscored the importance of
the 28-year-old military agency
to the country’s national security.

“For decades, a persistent illic-
it drug trade and unrelenting flow
of illegal immigration into and
through the country have com-
pounded the country’s national
security problems, challenged law
enforcement on land and sea,
taxed our strength and fortitude
as a nation, and burdened our
national budget and resources,”
Mr Symonette said.

He added that poachers con-
tinue to violate the country’s “ter-
ritorial integrity”, to deplete
marine resources, and to give no
thought to the fisheries manage-
ment and conservation laws and
initiatives.

“Grave new problems are
being packaged with the old,
making our national security
problems at sea and on land
increasingly complex,” he said.
“Tn a country which produces no
guns and which ‘has strict laws
governing the possession of
firearms, the increase in violent
crime using guns, particularly
murder and armed robbery are
undoubtedly (due) to the traffic in
arms.”

The New Entry 45 was also
reminded that they have com-
mitted to being part of the coun-

for Abaco developments

FROM page one

homes, hotels, condos, resorts,
golf courses and marinas, some
affecting Crown land and envi-
ronmentally sensitive environ-
ments, scientists at Friends of
the Environment, an Abaco-
based not-for-profit organisa-
tion, are suggesting an alterna-
tive.

The environmental education
organisation established in
Marsh Harbour 20 years ago
facilitates communication
between local people, develop-
ers, and Government, to discuss
the potential impact of plans.

Charlotte Dunn, a marine

biologist and chairwoman of -

Friends' Sustainable Develop-
ment Committee, said: "Our
biggest challenge is to educate
people who don't care about
the environment and will sup-
port any development next to
their community because they
just wantajob.

"We try to tell them that if
the development is downsized,
and the footprint is less, then
they still can have a job and still

‘be able to go out on the boat
_and get conch on the weekend

because it will be more sensi-
tive to the environment."

Eco-friendly resorts are a
growing global trend, Miss
Dunn said, and would provide
more diverse job opportunities
for Bahamians.

She said: "Eco-resorts would
offer jobs in bonefishing, and
to flora and fauna experts. They
would even open up an organic
farm to supply the resort so
people will have to come to the
community to have dinner.

"These places are the oppo-
site’ of a gated community
where the community next to
it is just the workers, and the
people who go there will have

_ more interest in the local people

and their country."
Eco-tourists will pay around
$1,000 a night to stay in a high
quality resort, and expect to
have four staff serving each
room, in addition to wanting

key staff with expert local
knowledge, Miss Dunn said.

"We have the ability to pick
and choose our developments,"
she emphasised.

"We can say these are the
type of people we want to
attract, and we ‘don't have to
sell ourselves out, but with all
these approvals in principle I
can't imagine they have turned
anything down."

Approved developments
include the $160 million trans-
formation of Snake Cay, part
of a vast creek system on the
east coast of Abaco, where
building homes and apartments
and dredging a marina will
affect Crown land islands, a

Tropical storm
could hit Bahamas
as a hurricane

FROM page one

tropical storm around 2 pm yes-
terday. Accuweather forecasters
warned it could strengthen into
a hurricane as early today or
tomorrow.

The Department of Meteo-
rology issued a tropical storm
alert was issued at 6 pm yes-
terday for the southeast
Bahamas (Inagua, Mayagua-
na, Acklins, Ragged Island

and Crooked Island) and the |

Turks and Caicos, Wayne
Neely a forecaster at the
Department of Meteorology
said.

A tropical storm alert
means that tropical storm con-
ditions could be experienced
in those areas within 60 hours.

"On the projected track,
Gustav will become a hurri-
cane by 2 pm (today) as it gets
off the coast of Haiti until it
hits land over Cuba and weak-
ens into a tropical storm," said
Mr Neely.

According to Accuweather
meteorologist Allan Reppert,
the islands of the southern
Bahamas should brace for
heavy rainfall and strong
winds as the storm moves

west.
"It looks like probably by



1. MEDICAL ASSISTING

Friday we could be seeing the
effects in the southern parts
of the Bahamas possibly. Best
chance is probably late in the
week, into the weekend that
we could see effects from the
storm. With it (the storm)
being that many days away
the (projected) track could
change but we do expect the
track to be off to the west and
making landfall over the
southern part of Cuba and
going northwestward, so it
looks like it should be off to
the west for the Bahamas,"
said Mr Reppert.

He added that the southern
Bahamas should brace for
stronger winds and heavy
rainfall as Gustav "could eas-
ily be a hurricane by (this
afternoon)."

Forecasters expect Gustav
to gradually decrease in
forward speed over the next
few days, according to the
NHC. *

At 2 pm yesterday, a tropi-
cal storm warning for the
southwest peninsula of Haiti
from southern border with the
Dominican Republic and
Port-au-Prince, Haiti was
upgraded to a hurricane warn-
ing, according to the National
Hurricane Centre's website.

2. DENTAL ASSISTING |

A hurricane warning means
hurricane conditions are
expected in the warning areas
within the next 24 hours.
The storm is expected to
dump five to seven inches of
rain on Hispaniola and threat-
ens the island with dangerous
flash floods and mudslides.
Haiti is still recovering from

Tropical Storm Fay, which,

battered the island a little
over a week ago and left
dozens dead due to heavy
flooding.

Preparing For A Hurricane

e listen for weather updates;

° prepare a disaster supply
kit;

* refill prescriptions;

e clear yard of potential
debris;

¢ protect windows and glass
doors with plywood or storm
shutters;

e fill car with gas; check

water, oil and tyres

secure your boat;

e get cash - banks and
ATMs will not be in opera-
tion without electricity.

this is just Christie trying to rule by chaos. If I

was Shane Gibson, or Neville Wisdom, Id be |

scared,” the source said.

Speaking about the reference to Mr Gibson
and former MP Wisdom, the source claimed that
both persons were mentioned in the report as
examples of persons involved in scandals that Mr
Christie was too “weak” to handle.

Other examples included the Korean Boat scan-
dal involving foreign fishing boats being given
permission to fish in Bahamian waters, despite
this being an industry reserved exclusively for
Bahamians; and the much publicized Anna Nicole
affair involving Mr Gibson.

However, as the report by Greenberg Quinlan
Rosner points out, the PLP needs to demonstrate
that it is taking action against corruption, and
show the public that it is truly committed to service
if it wants to win at the polls again.

Among the suggestions offered, including devel-

oping and publicizing a party code of conduct,
the surveyors offered some additional insight:

“As popular as some of these measures might
be, nothing would send a stronger signal of the par-
ty’s seriousness about ethics and integrity than to
expel a senior member for corruption. We are
not recommending an unwarranted hunt for some
sacrificial lamb, but the truth is, no action would
have as much political impact as a well known
figure being exposed and punished by his or her
own party,” the report read.

However, as sources explained to The Tribune,
the hard part now for the PLP is to identify which
member would be used to revamp its image and be
exposed on allegations of corruption.

“This is cold, calculated Machiavellianism at
its best and these guys are out for blood. This is
about holding onto power at any cost,” it was
claimed.

Olympic champ
Dementieva opens
with win at US Open

@ TENNIS

NEW YORK

Associated Press

OLYMPIC champion Elena
Dementieva showed her mettle
at the U.S. Open, rallying in the



second set Monday to beat

Akgul Amanmuradova 6-4, 7-5
to start what’s expected to be a
wide-open tournament.

Back from Beijing with her
gold, Dementieva won the final
four games. The fifth-seeded
Russian was glad to win quickly
and give her mind and body a
break.

“It’s very hard not to think
about the Olympic Games,”
Dementieva said. “Very difficult
to refocus. I mean, all my think-
ing is there in Beijing.”

Former champions Lindsay
Davenport and Svetlana
Kuznetsova and fourth-seeded
David Ferrer also opened with

straight-sets victories. Many of |

the stars were in a hurry — they
wanted to beat the rain in the
forecast. ;
Top-seeded Rafael Nadal,
James Blake and Jelena Jankovic

were set to play later Monday.”

Roger Federer, bidding for his
fifth straight U.S. Open title, was
scheduled to begin Tuesday, as
were No.1 Ana Ivanovic and the
Williams sisters.

The final Grand Slam event
of the season figured to be a
scramble, especially on the wom-
en’s side. Justine Henin retired
and is not back to defend her

title and Maria Sharapova is out.

with an injured shoulder.

Six different women have won
the U.S. Open in the last seven
years, and Dementieva is seeking
her first major championship.
But to her, the Olympic singles
title counts.

“The biggest goal for the year

_was Beijing,” she said..“In Rus- '

sia, if you stop anyone in the
street and ask what is a Grand
Slam, I don’t think many people
can tell you. But everyone knows
the Olympic Games. There is
nothing bigger.”

During a quick stopover in
Moscow to see her mom, she
found out how much the gold
_meant.

“People just come to me and

say, Oh, I’m happy for you.
You're always losing in the final.
It’s so great that you finally win
something big,” she said.

Dementieva put together a
workmanlike win over Aman-
muradova. Her opponent from
Uzbekistan served for the sec-
ond ahead 5-3, but Dementieva
still had enough energy.

“T don’t know what is best, to
be a little bit tired but very com-
fortable and very positive, or to
be fresh and not play in the
Olympic Games.”

Li Na, who beat Venus
Williams in Beijing, beat Shahar
Peer of Israel 2-6, 6-0, 6-1. The
No. 23-seeded Davenport defeat-
ed Aleksandra Wozniak of
Canada, 6-4, 6-2 and No. 3
Kuznetsova beat Zhang Shuai of
China 6-4, 6-2.

On the men’s side, the fourth-
seeded Ferrer beat Martin Vas-
sallo Arguello of Argentina 7-6
(1), 6-2, 6-2 and No. 32 Gael
Monfils downed Pablo Cuevas
of Uruguay 6-4, 6-4, 6-1. The No.
29-seeded Juan Monaco of
Argentina lost to Kei Nishikori
of Japan 6-2, 6-2, 5-7, 6-2.

Beijing prepares
for Olympic
venues’ future

@ OLYMPICS
BEIJING
Associated press

WHERE Olympians ran,
swam and slept, Chinese orga-
nizers see pop concerts, a pub-
lic pool, soccer and luxury
apartme fs,

Authorities are scrambling
to make sure the 91,000-seat
Bird’s Nest stadium and other
venues are put to good use
after the Olympics and Sep-
tember’s Paralympics. They
want to avoid the fate of other
Olympic hosts that were left
with empty, debt-burdened
facilities.

The NBA and private devel-
opers have been signed up to
run stadiums and arenas. The
Water Cube swimming center,
due to become a public pool,
raised money by licensing its
name for.a bottled water
brand. The Bird’s Nest is tak-
ing bids from companies for
naming rights.

“We believe that post games
and for a long period of time,
these venues will be used pret-
ty well,” Du Wei, vice presi-
dent of the Beijing Olympic
Economy Research Associa-
tion, a group linked to the Bei-
jing organizers, told reporters.
“The management companies
will immediately open them up
for public use.”

Still, Du and others say it
could take decades for the
Bird’s Nest and other venues to
pay for themselves.

“We can’t expect in the short
term all the investment will be
regained right away,” Du said.

Beijing built 12 permanent
and eight-temporary new
venues and refurbished 11 oth-
ers at a cost of $1.9 billion,
according to the city govern-
ment.

The Bird’s Nest will be the
highest-profile test case for the
city’s ability to make them
financially viable.

It has the advantage that it is
the first big, modern stadium in
a city where the main venue
for rock concerts and sports
has been the drab Workers
Stadium, a 58,000-seat hulk
built in 1959. But the new facil-

ity’s huge size and potentially’

high user fees could put it
beyond the reach of many
events.

The stadium’s deputy gen-
eral manager, Zhang Hengli,
declined to give financial
details or information on
planned events. But he told the
newspaper China Business
News it could take 30 years for
the Bird’s Nest to repay its
$220 million cost. Zhang said it
needs at least $19 million in
annual revenues to cover main-
tenance and debt payments.

Beijing is relying in part ona
timeworn strategy of forcing
state companies to share the
cost of public facilities.

CITIC Group, the invest-
ment arm of China’s Cabinet,
put up 48 percent of the money

to build the Bird’s Nest and.

the CITIC-owned Beijing
Guoan soccer club will make
the stadium its home field.

Zhang, the stadium official,
declined to discuss naming
rights. But China Business
News said as many as seven
companies are bidding. It said
they include non-Chinese bid-
ders, though attaching a for-
eign brand name to a national
symbol that appears on Chi-
na’s 10-yuan note might be
judged politically unacceptable.

The stadium has raised $14.5
million by selling sponsorships
to companies including 3M
Corp. and German drug com-
pany Bayer AG. Their names
appear on seats and other facil-
ities.

The Water Cube was paid
for by donations from ethnic
Chinese abroad, making it
cheaper to convert to public
use. But in a city where the
average income per person is
$4,100 a year, managers say
ticket prices will be kept low,
which leaves less for upkeep
of its pool and its futuristic bub-
ble-wrap exterior:

“If we rely only on swim-
ming pool tickets, we certainly
will lose money,” Kang Wei, a
deputy manager of the gov-
ernment company that owns
the pool, said in comments on
the Beijing organizers’ Web
site. “So we will have other
products to guarantee the oper-
ation in the long run.”

MIAMI DOLPHINS quarterback Chad Pennington drops back to pass during the first quarter of a
preseason football game against the Kansas-City Chiefs Saturday, Aug. 23, 2008 at Dolphin Stadi-

m@ FOOTBALL
DAVIE, Fla.
Associated Press

MIAMI DOLPHINS coach
Tony Sparano couldn’t help but
have a little fun Monday when
he finally announced the winner
of the team’s drawn-out quar-
terback competition.

“It’s Chad,” he said, chuck-
ling.
Chad Pennington or Chad
Henne?

“Pennington,” he added. “I
think the guy will do a great job
of managing our team. And the
team has responded really well
to him, and that’s where we are
going.”

The announcement officially
sets up an intriguing Week 1
matchup in Miami against the

New. York Jets, the team-that- -
cut Pennington to clear*salary::

the starting job. The Jets
released Pennington more than
two. weeks ago when they

acquired Favre from Green Bay. .

Pennington, who learned of
the decision after practice Mon-
day afternoon, was only made
available to speak to the media
before the announcement. But
he released a statement through
the team.

“I’m excited about the oppor-
tunity to lead this team,” Pen-
nington said. “We’ve worked
extremely hard over the last two
weeks, and I’m proud to be a
Miami Dolphin.” |

The decision was hardly sur-
prising.

Pennington was recognized as
the starter when he signed with
Miami. The 32-year-old sepa-
rated himself from Miami’s oth-
er quarterbacks — Henne, Josh
McCown and John Beck — and
has led the Dolphins to consec-
utive preseason wins in convinc-
ing fashion. He is 16-for-21 for

149 yards and one touchdown.

Perhaps more importantly, he
quickly has become one of
Miami’s leaders. Pennington has
held receivers after practice to
work on routes and timing. And
he’s taken teammates out for
dinners and movies just to get
to know them.

“A heck of a leader,” guard
Justin Smiley said last week. “I
mean, he doesn’t know any of
us from the man on the moon
right now, but he comes into the
huddle and says, "Give me your
eyes.’

“We didn’t break the huddle
good one time and he was like,
*Nah, nah, nah. Next time, we’ve
got to stand and break the hud-
dle.’ Just stuff a veteran with
great leadership would do. It’s
pretty exciting.”

. But the Dolphins. have seen

Pennington will be the 13th
starting quarterback for Miami
since Dan Marino announced
his retirement in 2000. And
inconsistency at the position is

perhaps why the Dolphins have

missed the playoffs a record six
straight seasons.

Coming off an embarrassing
1-15 season, the Dolphins are
hoping Pennington can provide
some stability this season and
be a bridge and mentor to
Henne. Pennington ranks first
in NFL history among quarter-
backs with at least 1,500
attempts with a 65.6 completion
percentage.

“We're a young team,” Spara-
no said. “He brings manage-
ment skills to the table. He can
manage a game really well. He’s
a little bit calmer in there. He’s
seen more situations.”

The decision to start Pen-

nington leaves the future of

Beck and McCown in doubt.
Sparano did not announce a

‘backup and has insisted the Dol-

phins could keep four quarter-
backs, but financial reasons and
limited roster space make that
scenario unlikely.

Bahamas
Baskethall
Federation to
host collegiate
competition

@ by RENALDO DORSETT

Sports Reporter ‘

The Bahamas Basketball
Federation will again host
collegiate competition dur-
ing the summer months to
help teams prepare for their
upcoming campaigns and
give local squads an opportu-
nity to face an elite level of
competition. aes

The University of Seattle
Redhawks will play a series
of exhibition games this
week at the Kendal G.L.
Issacs Gymnasium.

Last year the BBF hosted
a number of universities
including Indiana and one-
and-done sensation Eric
Gordon, now with the
NBA’s Los Angeles Clip-
pers.

The Redhawks will face
three Bahamian squads
including the College of the
Bahamas Caribs and the
NPBA runners-up the Elec-
tro Telecom Cybots.

The Redhawks are set to
advance to the NCAA Divi-
sion One in for the 2008-09
season and will use the trip
as a preliminary for their
premiere in one of college
basketball’s top rated pre-
season tournaments, “The
Great Alaska Shootout.”

The Redhawks have also
traveled to Barcelona, Spain
on a similar exhibition tour,
prior to the 2003-04 season.

Knowles
prepares for
fourth major

& by RENALDO DORSETT
Sports Reporter

Following a pair of less
than stellar showings at the
Beijing Olympics and at his
latest pre-major tune-up,
Mark Knowles diligently
prepares for a run towards a
championship doubles title
in the fourth major of the
season.

_ Knowles and Mahesh Bhu-

pathi fell 7-5, 6-2, to the .
Brazilian team of Marcelo
Melo and Andre Sa; in the
doubles final of the Pilot Pen
Tournament in New Haven,
Connecticut over the week-
end.

Knowles and Bhupathi,
the second ranked team in
the tournament double fault-
ed seven times in an error
filled championship match
which lasted just 82 minutes.

Both Knowles and Bhu-
pahti have had experience
winning U.S. Open finals
and are seeking to add a sec-
ond title to their resume.

Bhupathi teamed with
Max Mirnyi to take the title
in 2002 while Knowles and
Daniel Nestor captured the
_ title in 2004.

Since the 2007 U.S. Open
the pairings have swapped
partners with Nestor and
Nenad Zimonjic now ranked
as the number one team in
the tournament.

Bhupathi and Knowles are
seeded fourth.

Prior to the Pilot Penn
Tournament Knowles and
Devin Mullings lost in the
opening round to Mike and
Bob Bryan, 6-2, 6-1.

the Beijing Olympics, the
Bahamas equalled their medal

2004 and Sydney in 2000 and con-
tinued what has become a tradi-
tion of track and field excellence
since Frank Rutherford won the
country’s first medal in athletics at
the Barcelona Games in 1992.

Triple jumper Leevan Sands
carried the burden of the entire
team into their final individual
event when he won the Bahamas’
first medal of the Beijing
Olympics with a National Record
setting bronze medal jump of
17.59m. Sands’ bronze medal win-
ning jump came just moments
after Chris Brown was denied the
bronze medal in the men’s 400m
when he was edged out on a head
first dive across the line by Amer-
ica’s David Neville.

Brown, with the help of team-

mates Ramon Miller, Avard |,

Moncur, Michael Mathieu, Andre
Williams, and NCAA Indoor and
Outdoor 400m champion,
Andretti Bain, rebounded to
claim the silver medal in the
1600m relay in the final event at
the Bird’s Nest.

_In the official post-games
standings, the Bahamas was one
of six countries tied for 65th posi-
tion, among more than 200 coun-
tries.

their fallen
soldiers

@ By ROB GILLIES
WHITBY, Ontario

More than 200 people line an

overpass above a stretch of
.Canada’s busiest thoroughfare
now known as the “Highway of
Heroes” ‘to pay final tribute to
three soldiers killed in
Afghanistan.
. Veterans, families and fire-
fighters respectfully applaud and
wave maple leaf.flags as the
motorcade passes. The soldiers’
families wave back in apprecia-
tion.

The ritual is repeated every
time a fallen soldier returns to
Canada. | —

On Saturday night, as three
bodies moved down the 100-mile-
long section of Highway 401 that
connects the military base in
Trenton, Ontario, to‘the morgue
in Toronto, dozens of bridges
along the way were packed with

Canada has lost 93 soldiers and
one diplomat in Afghanistan ——
including three soldiers killed by
a roadside bomb last Wednesday.
The country first sent troops to
Afghanistan after the 9/11 attacks
and increased the deployment
after declining a U:S. request to
dispatch troops to Iraq. -

As. the death toll in
Afghanistan approaches 100, it
threatens to rekindle a debate
between those who argue a stable
Afghanistan is needed to protect
Canadians and global security and
opponents who say too many sol-
diers are dying for a lost cause.
That debate had largely dissipat-
ed since parliament voted in
March to extend the mission to
2011) 2% WOE Rs



Retired Maj. Gen. Lewis
MacKenzie, the commander of a
U.N. force in the Balkans, said
the milestone could revive debate
about the mission but is not like-
ly to derail it.

: “There will be a lot of atten-
tion but I don’t think it will cause
a change in policy,” he said. “It’s
as tragic at 99 as it is at 101.”

‘ One idea that could fuel the
debate is that some Canadians
lump Afghanistan with the war
in Iraq. ;

, “Here’s a U.N.-sanctioned mis-
gion carried out by NATO and
you still have people referring to
it as Bush’s war and we’re the
lackeys of the Americans,”
MacKenzie said. “That’s just knee
jerk anti-American, anti-Bush
thetoric.”

, Canada’s Conservative gov-
ernment had banned the media
from showing live images of flag-
draped coffins at the Trenton
base in 2006, angering political
opponents and some families who
accused the government of try-
ing to play down the growing
human cost of the mission in
Afghanistan.

' The decision mirrored the
Bush administration policy block-
ing media coverage of the coffins
of slain service members arriving
in the United States.

i; Canada’s government has since
changed its stance on media cov-
erage of coffins in Trenton and
it now lets the families decide if
they want it. .

PEOPLE line a bridge in Whitby, Ontario, Canadajto pay respects to the passing convoy for the three deceased soldiers following their repatriation to

Canada on Saturday, Aug. 23, 2008. A roadside blast Wednesday killed the three soldiers in the southern Afghanistan province of Kandahar,
Canada's Department of National Defense said. Their deaths bring to 93 the number of Canadian soldiers who have died during the Afghan mission

since it began in 2002.

“Tt’s a big number and it’s
growing. Every time I come to
the bridge I always wish it was
my last. But you know in the back
of your mind that it’s not going to
be the last,” said McFarlane,
whose nephew served ‘in
Afghanistan. “It’s the least that
I can do for these guys who are
giving their lives,” he said.

The mounting toll in the fight
against al-Qaida and the Taliban
has exacted an emotional, if not
political, price in Canada — a
country whose traditional role as
peacekeeper has left its citizens
unaccustomed to seeing soldiers
die.

Canada has not lost so many
soldiers since more than 500 were
killed in the Korean War.

Judith Churchill, a 36-year-old
teacher, brought her two kids to
an overpass in Whitby on Satur-
day night but she had no answer
when they asket when the war
would end. ;

“I never thought it would get
that high,” Churchill said of the
death toll. “Canadians are tradi-

tionally peacekeepers and so for
us to lose that many, it’s hard.”
Jim Flaherty, Canada’s Finance
Minister, praised his constituents
who have been showing up each
time a dead soldier is returned.
“It’s a great outpouring of sup-
port by ordinary Canadians. None
of this was orchestrated by the
government or by the town or
anything like that. It’s just people
that want to come out and pay
their respects,” Flaherty said..
' “Tt’s uniquely Canadian. It was
spontaneous.”
Canadians — the majority of
‘whom applauded their govern-
ment for declining to join the
U.S.-led invasion of Iraq — are
increasingly concerned about the
toll in Afghanistan.
In all, there are some 53,000

NATO-led troops from 27 coun- .

tries serving there. But it has been

forces — with support from Den-

mark, Romania, Estonia and non-
NATO Australia — that have
borne the brunt of the Taliban’s
attacks.

Canada has 2,500 soldiers sta-
tioned in Kandahar province, the
former Taliban stronghold that
has again emerged as the epicen-
ter of violence.

This year will likely be the

deadliest for international troops
since the 2001 invasion. Some 188
soldiers from international forces,
including about 101 Americans,
have died so far, according to an
Associated Press count. At that
pace, the year’s total would far
surpass the record 222 troop
deaths in 2007.

At least 500 members of the
U:S. military have died since the
US. invaded Afghanistan in late
2001 for sheltering Osama bin

Laden, according to the U.S. |

Department of. Defense. John
Pierrepont, 55, a retired Toronto
police officer, does not agree with
the mission in Afghanistan but
supports the troops. He’s been to
the “Highway of Heroes” about
20 times.

" “Some people cry. Some peo-
ple clap. It’s just amazing,” Pier-
repont said. “It’s too bad we did-
n’t have morc politicians here that
might be less willing to send them
over there.”

Steve Weiner, a 53-year-old
dentist, pulled off the side of
Highway 401 last week after

another dead soldier was brought,
home. “I don’t think we’re get=
ting accustomed to seeing soldiers’

die. There were 100 people on
the bridge,” he said. “TI left after a
while and every bridge all the way
home had a 100 people on it. It’s
a sign of how special each one of
these people are.”

Real estate project's first phase 58% sold

Caves Heights developer says ‘economy may be rebounding’, as sales rebound from six-month lull

@ By CARA BRENNEN-BETHEL
Tribune Business Reporter

An upscale western New Providence
real estate development has sold 58 per
cent of its first phase units, its developer
told Tribune Business yesterday, after
experiencing a fall- off in demand during
the 2008 first half.

Chris Herrod said the Caves Heights
project, located near the Caves Village
development and the existing Caves con-

. dominium complex, seemed to be

rebounding from the economic chal-

tial developments as a result of the US
economic downturn.

“We. had definitely seen a slowdown
on sales for the first six.months of the
year, but now we have been getting quite
a few inquires. It is a sign that the econ-

omy may be rebounding,” Mr Herrod |

said.
“We have done a lot of pre-selling,

and at the moment I would say that we
-have sold about 58 per cent of the units

in the first two towers.”

Mr Herrod explained that to date,
ground has been broken and construc-
tion has begun on the first phase of the

project, which involves completing the
first two towers.

“We’ve begun pouring the foundation
of the first two towers, which have 44
units, and that is scheduled to be com-
pleted within 18 months.

“Then we will enter phase two - the °
remaining towers - which will have 42 -

units,” he added.
Mr Herod said he was pleased with

‘the progress of Caves Heights, and said

the developers were currently on target

to meet their projected timelines.
Caves Heights also posted this

progress report on its website on Tues-

day August, 19: “The contractors com-
pound is in place.

:Site grading is under way, and block
work is going up.

“We are on track with all construc-
tion. Views are wonderful.

‘We will start with construction of the
sales office and build a road track to
give easy access in the following months,
so clients can easily access the site and
see progress during construction.”

The Caves Heights development is a
private ocean view community, which
sits on seven acres. Unit prices begin at
$695,000.

Family Guardian’s health premium revenues increased 20.per
cent year-on-year for the 2008 first half, its president told Tribune
Business yesterday, but added that its full-year financial perfor-
mance would be directly linked to how the weak Bahamian equi-
ties market performed. |

Patricia Hermanns said that while the BISX-listed life and health
insurer was “optimistic” about continued growth in top-line pre-
mium revenues through the 2008 year-end, the equities market and
its effect on the value of Family Guardian’s investments portfolio
would “impact our results going forward”.

Ms Hermanns told Tribune Business that the increase in claims
paid out as policyholder benefits, which had risen by 21.4 per cent
in the 2008 first half to $22.368 million, would impact the company’s
results “less than the equities market”.

Singapore shows Bahamas
the way on energy policy

lm BY LARRY GIBSON

nflation in the US is run-

ning at an annual rate of

just under 6 per cent.

Crude oil is up by 46 per
cent, and gasoline by 30 per cent,
so far this year. The major
economies around the world, in
North America, Europe and Asia,
are slowing down.

What does this mean for the
average Bahamian?

This means that'tough times
are ahead for at least the next
nine to 18 months. In recent
years, salary increases have been
averaging around 3 per cent per
year - if you’re lucky! Businesses
are also feeling the pinch, and I
am concerned that many small
businesses are folding.

Talk Shows

On one talk show this week,
the topic was the skyrocketing
cost of electricity. Caller after
caller told horror stories of their
personal.experiences.

On a personal level, my month-
ly bill is up by about 40 per cent
over the past eight months.

This is after getting rid of all
incandescent light bulbs in favor
of fluorescent bulbs; putting the
water heater on a timer; making a
conscious effort to turn off lights
and electronics in unused rooms;
and using air conditioning as spar-
ingly as possible.

The fuel surcharge element of
our BEC bill is.actually through
the roof. It is not something that
BEC or the consumer has any
real control over in the short
term.

long-term fundamental change in

remedial action

At the household level, this is

All of us will have to tighten our

1. Cut out unnecessary driving.
Plan your trips more efficiently

2. Turn off lights in rooms not
being used. It is not uncommon to
see every room lit up in every
house as you drive through our
neighbourhoods at night. Also
invest in a timer for your water
heater. :

3. Cut out wasteful spending.
Bahamians have great difficulty
separating ‘true needs’ from
wants.

4. Carry your lunch from home
instead of buying lunch each day.
Most workplaces have kitchens

Long-term policy
_ requirements

The Government needs to
devise and publish a National
Energy Policy. Last November,
the Singapore Government pub-
lished an 80-page document enti-
tled National Energy Policy

‘Report (NEPR). Two things

immediately struck me about the
report:

1. There seem to: be national
consensus (buy in).

2. It is a plan that goes far
beyond the next election cycle.

Singapore’s NEPR is a com-
prehensive report that lays a clear
blueprint for the future. In the
‘forward’ to the report, the Min-
ister for Trade and Industry
states: “One key challenge is
ensuring our energy security.
Having no energy resources of
our own, we are dependent on
imports of oil and gas for our
energy needs, and hence are vul-
nerable to the risks of supply dis-
ruption. It is imperative that we

manage the security of our ener- |

gy sources. The issues surround-

‘



NOTICE

ing energy security are multi-
faceted, but a key strategy is to
diversify our energy sources.”

The Bahamas faces the same
‘macro’ issues as Singapore, and
in this vein, we should:

-_ Bahamas to host Film Showcase





The Bahamas is to play host
to filmmakers from around
the region during the Second
Travelling Caribbean Film
Showcase, to be held from
October 1-4.

Bahamas FilmInvest Inter-
national, a sponsor and organ-
iser of last year’s event, said
the showcase, which was
established two years ago, is
intended to recognise the

_work and skill of film produc- ©
ers from the Caribbean.

It also provides an avenue
for these producers to expose
their work and creativity to
other members of the broader
Caribbean community.

Owen Bethel, the Bahamian
banker who is president of
Bahamas FilmInvest Interna-
tional, and a member of the
National Coordinating Com-

MC a mittee, said last year’s event

exposed Bahamians for the
first time to the depth of skill
and diversity that exists with-
in the region.

“The calibre of the works
of these producers could stand
parallel to the films out of
well-known Hollywood pro-
ducers. Furthermore, the films
generally contained issues or
subject matter to the which
the local population could

‘relate,” Mr Bethel said.

The showcase this year will
focus on themes that are rele-
vant to children and adoles-
cents, as well as issues that
affect and threaten Caribbean
youth.

Erica James, curator of the
National Art Gallery and a
member of the National
Coordinating Committee,
added: “Given our own cir-
cumstances, regarding the

process with them, and received
all our permits and approvals
this year,” Mr Bentley said.

“We went out to bid on the
construction contracts, and got
started in July. We are under-
taking construction on the mari-
na, and according to Bahamas
Marine its due for a Novem-
ber/December completion.”

Mr Bentley said work had
also begun on enhancing
Romora Bay’s infrastructure,
putting in a wastewater treat-
ment plant, and upgrading park-
ing and the bar and restaurant
area. Bahamas Marine current-
ly has 12-14 construction work-
ers on site.

Romora Bay’s owner, the
Bonachella Investments con-
sortium, endured a more than
three-year wait for all the nec-
essary government permits and
approvals after it acquired the
property in November 2004.

A particular source of frus-
tration, as revealed by Tribune
Business last year, was that
under the former PLP govern-
ment the Docks Committee,
which is responsible for approv-.
ing all Bahamas-based marina
developments, first gave - but
then rescinded - approval for
Romora Bay’s 40-slip marina.

It was thought that the deci-
sion to rescind the approval was
connected to the development

of a ‘Master Plan’ for Harbour
Island’s development that had
been proposed by the Save Har-
bour Island Association
(SHIA).

That group, largely made up
of winter residents and second
homes, was opposing any fur-
ther resort development on
Harbour Island, citing the 60-
slip marina at the nearby Valen-
tine’s Resort - which seemed
completely out of scale with the
island’s size and character - as a
prime example of their con-
cerns.

However, Mr Bentley con-
firmed to Tribune Business yes-
terday that “everything is
squared away” when it came to
the government approvals that
Romora Bay needed. Among
the permits it is understood to
have secured are a seabed lease
and Hotels Encouragement Act
agreement.

“Tt’s an exciting time for us,”
Mr Bentley said. “If anyone
knows Romora Bay, it’s a great
piece of property that’s seen
better days, so we’re excited to
bring it to the level Harbour
Island ‘and the Bahamas
deserve.

“We're being very conscious
of the need to keep to the spir-
it of what Harbour Island is,
and the design bears that in

mind. It’s been a long time com-

ing. We’d have liked to be

where we are now two years
ago, but we’ll take it and push
forward from this.”

Remora Bay currently fea-
tures 26 rooms, and the owners
plan to increase its capacity to a
total of 40 with the addition of
new condo hotel units.

“We’re actually in the process
of upgrading the existing hotel
units, and hopefully next year,
once the marina is completed,

we will start work on the new ~

condo hotel units,” Mr Bentley
said. ;

Although unable to give a
precise figure, he added that
Romora Bay’s expansion was
likely to come close to at least
doubling existing staff numbers
of 25-30 personnel.

In its initial economic projec-
tions for the project, as reported
by Tribune Business last year,
Bonachella Investments pro-
jected that the development
would have a $57.5 million total
economic impact over a three-
year period and create between
90-100 extra jobs.

Over that same three-year
period, it was projected that the
Romora Bay expansion would
generate an extra $9 million in
tax revenues and $27 million in
on and off-property guest

Meanwhile, Mr Bentley told
Tribune Business: “When it
comes to the project itself, we’re
doing everything to be as envi-
ronmentally sensitive as possi-
ble. We plan on this being as
environmentally friendly a mari-
na operation of any in the
Bahamas.”

Mr Bentley said Romora Bay
was “doing all of the compo-
nents of the Blue Flag certifi-
cation” programme for its mari-
na, which is a new build and
should be completed by
November/December 2008.

The certification involves
training all Romora Bay staff
to make sure waste is disposed
of properly; providing sewerage
pumping out stations for all vis-
iting boats; providing recycling
and waste disposal; offering
Blue Flag certification to
boaters; and providing all guest
boats with a dye disc.

The latter initiative, Mr Bent-
ley explained, would enable any
vessels who flushed and emp-
tied out their holding tanks
while in the marina to be cited,
as the dye would detect this and
change colour.

FamGuard health
premiums grow
20% year-on-year

FROM page 1B

And with the BISX All-Share
Index down by around 12 per
cent for the year-to-date, Ms
Hermanns said it was possible
that the decline in value of Fam-
ily Guardian’s equity invest-
ments could continue - and
deepen - during the 2008 sec-
ond half.

“The critical issue for us this
year is the equities market and
its weakness. The equities mar-
ket will impact our performance
going forward, depending on
how far prices decline,” Family
Guardian’s president said.
“That is a constant, but outside
of that we are optimistic about
our continued growth. We
anticipate our being able to
grow through year-end.

“The equities market has the
potential of making increasing
swings against the prior year.
Last year the market went up
quite aggressively, against sig-
nificant declines this year.”

Family Guardian saw the
unrealized value of its invest-
ments in equities (the current
paper value of its existing
investments in stocks and
shares) drop by $817,693 dur-
ing the 2008 first half, compared
to a $1.074 million gain during
the first six months of June
2007.

This $1.9 million swing was
almost entirely responsible for
Family Guardian’s 39 per cent
drop in first half profits to
$3.025 million, compared to the
$4.959 million gained in the
2007 comparative period.

Seemingly preparing Family
Guardian’s shareholders for the
fact that the company’s 2008
financial performance is unlike-
ly to be as buoyant as 2007’s
record-setting year, Ms Her-
manns said the issues raised by

we've been

companies.”

the equities market decline
were not “particular” to her
company.

Rival Bahamian life and
health insurers were all suffer-
ing declines in the value of their
investment portfolios, too, and
Ms Hermanns said Family
Guardian’s equities holdings
were smaller than those of its
competitors - implying the com-
pany was not affected as much.

’ Although Family Guardian
saw a 26.7 per cent spike in ben-
efits paid-out during the 2008
second quarter, rising to $12.059
million from $9.519 million in
2007, Ms Hermanns said there
was “nothing unusual” in this
increase, which was caused by a
rise in death claims.

Pointing out that claims
trends often moved in cycles,
the Family Guardian president
said that based on conversations
with her Bahamian life and
health insurance counterparts,
she understood “that the indus-
try has seen an escalation in
death claims this year”.

Another factor behind the
claims and benefits increase was
the growth in Family
Guardian’s health business, as

increased volumes naturally
translate into a rise in claims
for life and health insurers.

However, Ms Hermanns said
the rate of health premium
growth was outstripping the
increase in medical claims.

She explained: “We have
experienced a substantial
increase in our health business.
We have had a large jump in
health business sold. We are up,
in terms of premium, by more
than 20 per cent over the prior
year on health business.

“That’s not reflective only of
business gained this year. We
have been very aggressive,
through our agency force, in
expanding our reach into the
health market and other mar-
kets. We’ve seen some transfer
of business; we’ve seen new
business, and some of it’s come
from existing business.”

Ms Hermanns added: “Our
premium income has grown
substantially. We’re seeing that
our business volumes are con-
tinuing to expand, and our pre--
mium revenue is growing.

“TI think that’s outstripping
our [growth in] claims by a long
shot. The growth in claims is
related to the growth in busi-
ness volumes - the more busi-
ness you get, the more claims
you get - but the rise in claims is
not outstripping the growth in
premium.”

Ms Hermanns added that
despite the difficult economic
climate, Family Guardian had
not seen any increase in policy
surrenders by its clients.

“We haven’t seen anything
that is a concern. Our premium
growth reflects that,” Ms Her-
manns said. “We haven’t seen
any huge changes in surrenders,
like we’ve been reading about
with other companies. We
haven’t seen any upturn in pol-
icy surrenders.” ‘

positive direction, as opposed to
going in with debt. Ownership
involves more participation by
the fund, and we're looking to be
equity partners in more new ven-
tures.”

Mr Cunningham said the
Bahamas Entrepreneurial Ven-
ture Fund “hasn’t seen the kind of
performance expected over the
last few years” from the debt and
equity investments made in the
dreams of Bahamian entrepre-
neurs.

When it came to loans (debt)
made to start-ups, he added:
“Those are the ones we find are
more trouble than the ones where

we've taken equity stakes.”

Mr Cunningham said the
Bahamas Entrepreneurial Ven-
ture Fund’s Board and its admin-
istrator, Jerome Gomez of Baker
Tilly, Gomez, were currently
working on developing a three-
year “strategic plan” for the fund
that was likely to be presented to
the Government within the next
four to five weeks.

A key component of that three-
year plan is the need to attract
private investors and capital to
invest in the Bahamas Entrepre-
neurial Venture Fund, something
that Mr Cunningham said might
be achieved at the end of those
three years.

Apart from making the fund
less reliant on the Government,

- BUSINESS

which is currently its sole sponsor
through a $1 million annual injec-
tion, attracting private capital
would also enable it to increase
the size of its individual invest-
ments and take on ‘higher-risk,
greater return’ projects.

Currently, the Bahamas Entre-
preneurial Venture Fund is limit-
ed to a maximum $100,000 loan
to any applicant, and a maximum
$200,000 equity stake.

“We're putting together a
three-year strategic plan, and
hopefully in the next three years
we'll get to the point where we
turn the fund around,” Mr Cun-
ningham said.

“The way we're looking at it
going forward, in the not too dis-
tant future, is to get private equi-

ty participation in the fund as well
in the form of shares, and not just
rely on an annual injection from
the Government.

“We don’t want to be highly
dependent on government to
finance the fund itself. We want
to move away from that.

“If we have private capital, we
believe we can get more money to
start off with, and if we get more
funds we can start to venture into
bigger projects.

“Some of the higher risk ones
we feel can do well.”

Mr Cunningham said he knew
of at least one business that need-
ed $500,090 in funding to “get it
where it needs to be. Higher risk
equates to higher return, and
some of the pension funds may

to construct a new tank park in
that area. It is under review,” he
said.

BORCO was acquired earlier
this year, in a deal thought to be
worth $900 million, by a combi-
nation of US-based First Reserve
Corporation, the world’s largest
private equity investor in the oil
and gas industries, and terminal
operator Royal Vopak NV.
Vopak has a 20 per cent equity
interest in the deal, which was
first revealed by Tribune Busi-
ness.

The duo purchased BORCO
from the Venezuelan state oil
company, PDVSA, and inherit-
ed an unused 200-acre site that
was always likely to be used for
future expansion.

Prior to the Greenfield Expan-
sion project, the new owners have
already initiated a $50-million
refurbishment project to restore
2.5 million barrels of oil storage
capacity.

Mr Huizer said all of Vopak
Terminal Bahamas’ tank space
was currently sold out to clients,
but while there was currently 20
million barrels of storage capaci-
ty on site, some five million was
out of service.

“Our clients are crying out for
more space and they are relying
on Vopak,” he said. “Our goal is
to be one of the biggest indepen-
dent third-party terminals with-
in a couple of years.”

Mr Huizer said the upgrade
programme has already started
to repair some of the oil tanks
that have remained dormant for
the past 20 years.

“We are spending $50 million
to reinstate about 2.5. million bar-
rels. We have started that, and
that will take us well into 2009,”
Mr Huizer said.

He added that Vopak plans to
spend another $55 million to
increase storage capacity by 2.8
million barrels during its Brown-
field Expansion Programme.

Mr Huizer said the project will
involve the construction of sev-
en new tanks — three of half a mil-
lion barrels capacity, and another
four able to store 330,000 barrels

plant

Mr Huizer said Vopak worked
with the major oil companies, and
was presently involved with 10
major clients.

He pointed out that Vopak
Europe Terminal, which is the
largest independent terminal in
the world, with 22 million barrels
storage capacity, is also in the
process of expansion.

Mr Huizer said Vopak Termi-
nal Bahamas was demolishing
and removing the refinery units
that closed in 1985.

He added that as terminal stor-
age capacity grows, it will have
to look at constructing additional
offshore jetties.

In terms of employment, Mr
Huizer said the company cur-
rently employs about 160 workers
and is actively seeking additional
Bahamians in key positions. He
noted that the company has
received some 700 applications
to date.

The Bahamas Entrepreneurial
Venture Fund’s chairman said
that the $1 million injection
received from government annu-
ally was adequate to meet the
fund’s financing needs for the
next 12 months, but thereafter
the need to attract private capital
was paramount.

“Bahamians do have a lot of
good ideas, but the management

“One of the things we see lack-

don’t have any capital or $1 to

for the fund to go with it.

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.

Understanding your feet



WHEN A foot requires medical
attention, footwear becomes a
factor-in the patient’s treatment,
recovery or rehabilitation.

































Summer sun
* protection for

SUN PROTECTION FOR

BABIES AND TODDLERS

CHILDREN need sunlight
but there must be a balance
‘between getting enough sun
and protecting your child
when they are outside from
the damaging effects of the
sun.

Pink cheeks on a baby look
adorable, but that glow is a
sign of sun damage no matter
how healthy it makes your
child look. This damage accu-
mulates every day throughout
childhood.

Sunlight triggers many
changes in the skin. Early
changes include suntan, sun-
burn, freckles, while late
changes include wrinkles, age
spots and looseness and sag-
ging of the skin. The most seri-
ous change of all is skin cancer
which can be deadly in some
cases. Ninety per cent of all
skin cancers arise from exces-
sive exposure to sunlight. In
fact, one blistering sunburn in
childhood can double a per-
son’s lifetime chances of
developing a serious form of
skin cancer.

OUTDOOR PRECAUTIONS

Your baby should have
fresh air and light but NOT
during the peak time of the
day. Schedule your baby’s
stroll for early morning or late
evening when the sun’s rays
are less powerful.

You should put on a sun hat
or bonnet with a wide brim
whenever the baby is outside.

When outside, find a
shady place for your baby if
possible.

Ensure your baby’s arms
and legs are covered by tight-
ly woven but loose fitting
clothing.

Ensure that the baby’s

“stroller/carriage provides ade-

quate shade with a hood.

CHOOSING A

SUNSCREEN

Look for SPR115 or greater.

Do a “patch test” by putting
a small amount of sunscreen
on the inside of your child’s
wrist to test for irritation or
allergies.

If an irritation or rash devel-
ops, try another product.

A cream or lotion sun-
screen may be better than an
alcohol-based or gel-based
product.

If the sunscreen is scented
and attracts insects, then try
unscented.

APPLYING SUNSCREEN

Sunscreens should NOT be
used on babies under six
months old. In fact, babies
under six months should be
exposed to the sun as little as
possible.

Apply the sunscreen as lib-
erally and evenly as possible.



What is so unique about
the human foot?. It is the
only foot in nature with a
heel bone that touches the
ground; that has a straight-
ahead big toe (instead of a

thumb-like) and that has an ~

arch. The foot has 26 bones.
A pair of feet has 52 bones,
which is more than one-
fourth of all the 206 bones of
the body. This is an indica-
tion of how important nature
regarded the foot when she
designed it.

Taking the structure of the
foot even further, there are
33 joints, and over 100 ten-
dons, muscles and ligaments.
That is an awful lot of places
for pain to occur. When a
foot requires medical atten-
tion, footwear becomes a
factor in the patient’s treat-
ment, recovery or rehabilita-
tion.

When appropriate, doctors
tefer patients to specialists
who are trained in pedor-
thics to address lower-limb-
related problems and
pathologies using footwear.

At a pedorthic facility,
trained pedorthists will fit
your feet with specially
designed inserts for your
particular foot shape and
condition. Trained staff also
have in-depth knowledge of
proper shoe selection and
modification for customers
who suffer from foot prob-

A CREAM or lotion
sunscreen may be
better than an
.alcohol-based or
gel-based product.

Rub in well. If your child is
squirmy, then apply the sun-
screen to your hand then rub
it in.

Apply at least 30 minutes
before going outside.

Sunscreen MUST be reap-
plied every two hours. If your
child is playing in the water
or sweating a lot, reapply
more often.

Ensure that you remember
to apply the sunscreen to the
ear, lips, and nose and around
the eyes.

Try using zinc oxide on
the nose and ears for extra
protection.

An SPF 15 lip balm should
be applied to the lips.and tod-
dlers may enjoy applying it
themselves.

UV blocking sunglasses will
protect the eye region which is
vulnerable.

Avoid putting baby oil on
the skin before going out-
doors, as this makes the skin
translucent. This then allows
more of the sun’s rays to pass
through.

THE human foot is a very complex
organ. In fact, there is no other foot
even closely like it in all nature.



fitted inserts and shoes, we
can reduce stress on the
joints and spine and promote

» proper posture and gait. The
spine will relax as the body:
reaches a healthy state of
ease and balance.

pains are often caused by the
style and fit of your shoes. A
supportive shoe, combined
with a proper orthotic
(insert), will put your foot in
its natural position for walk-
ing and standing. By putting
your foot in balance, the
alignment of other joints will
be improved. Properly
aligned joints mean less pain.
A foot specialist can assist |
you by providing properly
fitted shoes and inserts.
Many musculoskeletal
problems occur from poor
posture and faulty gait pat-
terns (improper walking).
Every day we receive con-
stant shocks to the joints and
spine from walking and
standing on hard, flat and
unyielding surfaces. This cre-
ates foot, ankle and leg prob-
lems and a stooped, passive
posture. Through properly

lems or pain associated with
prolonged standing.

These facilities are
designed to provide custom-
made orthotics (inserts),
extra-depth, therapeutic,
orthopaedic and fashionable
footwear which can be cus-
tom designed to fit your feet.

Trained pedorthists are
skilled at evaluating feet and
fitting footwear. After physi-
cians have determined what
kind of assistance your
footwear should provide for
you, a specialist can fill the
prescription.

What you wear on your
feet is the most important
part of foot care. For the
most part, foot problems are
caused or aggravated by
poorly fitted footwear. A
trained pedorthist takes into
consideration your foot type,
shape and condition when
selecting foot wear. Many
problems such as aches in
your feet, ankles, knees, low-
er back and even your shoul-
ders stem from improper
care of your feet. These

MCh ee”

TS SNACK TIME!

Provided by Adelma Penn, Camelta Barnes, Shandera Smith and Lathera Lotmore, Nutritionists from the Department of Public / Health Ministry of Health

WHO doesn’t love to munch on those tasty
delicious and mouth-watering fries, chips
and cookies? Taste great, don’t they?

But do you know that you can get the same deli-.
cious tastes without all the calories, sugar, salt and
fat and without adding extra pounds to your figure?
Oh yes, you can! Let's find out how, read on.

When you hear the word
snacks, what kinds of food do
you think of? Is it chips, cook-

ies, apples, carrot sticks, yogurt,

and chocolate? Well, you are
correct.

However, to promote good
health, we want you to choose
snack foods that are nutrient
dense (lots of nutrients and few
calories) rather than calorie
dense (few nutrients and lots of
calories).

Now schools are about to
open and this means that par-
ents will shop (or already
have!) not only for books, pen-
cils, uniforms and bags but also

for snack foods for their chil-
dren. And not only children are.
into the snacks, but grown ups,
too.

' Imagine it... Your stomach is
growling, but lunch is hours
away. You’re eyeing the cook-
ies on the counter or in your
desk drawer, but you know that
you'll feel guilty if you indulge.

THE BENEFITS OF SNACKS

Snacks aren’t necessarily
bad. In fact, mini-meals sever-
al times a day can be benefi-
cial. Here’s how:

Binge control. If eating sev-
eral low-fat whole-grain crack-

ers, a few pretzels, a piece of
fruit or some raw vegetables
keeps you from taking second
or third helpings at your next
meal, you may actually con-
sume fewer total calories for
the day.

Extra energy and nutrients.
Traditional, made-at-home
meals often lose out to busy
schedules. A grab-and-go
snack can be the difference
between some nourishment
and none at all.

Satisfaction for small
appetites. Young children’s
tiny stomachs can hold only
small portions of food at one
time. Older adults who are
less active and who burn fewer
calories also may feel more
comfortable eating smaller
meals more frequently.

PLANNING SNACKS

1. Use the dietary planning
principles — variety, modera-
tion and balance.

Ensure that the snacks are
low or moderate in sugar, fat
and salt serve a variety of
fruits, vegetables and whole

. grains serve age appropriate

serving sizes.

2. Have a scheduled snack
times. This should be at least
two hours after a meal.

3. Serve combination foods
for snacks. For example,
strawberries with yogurt or
dried fruits and nuts.

4. Serve a variety of foods to
satisfy different appetites:

Sweet: apple slices, grapes,
dilly, scarlet plums, mango.

Crispy: carrot sticks/baby
carrots, cucumber sticks,
sweet pepper strips, toast,
cereals with nuts.

Warmth: vegetable soup,
tomato soup.

Thirst: fruit smoothies, fruit
shakes, yogurt shakes, popsi-
cles.



CHOOSE HEALTHY SNACKS

Here are some of your best
snack picks:

Whole grains. Whole-grain
snacks are rich in fibre and
complex carbohydrates, which
give you energy that has some
staying power. Here are some
examples:

¢ COOKIES
(without icing and fillings)

¢ BAKED CHIPS
© MINI SIZED CHOCOLATE .

Remember, these are okay
once ina while, NOT EVERY
DAY! |

TIPS FOR PARENTS.
Set limits on the number of
sugary snacks allowed and
explain that they are treats and
not for every day...

Offer children a ‘arty of

healthy snacks as this will give
them the opportunity to make
their own choice and get them
in the practice of choosing
more healthy options.

Always have healthy snacks
in the home to decrease the
temptation of having unhealthy
ones.

Don’t give snacks too close
to meal times as this discour-
ages children from eating their
main meal, which leads to a

desire for.snacks later on.

Avoid soft drinks and other
sugary drinks, as they make fill
children feel full and may
therefore take the place of as
healthier snack.

Remember — snacks can be

_a great way to incorporate

more. fruit and.vegetables into

"your child's diet.




@ By SARAH SCHWEITZER

When Meredith White was expecting
her first son, nothing terrified her quite
like a visit to Babies “R” Us. Aisle after
dizzying aisle of baby paraphernalia

beckoned, with dozens of varieties of |

bottles, nipples, wipes (and their warm-
ers), pacifiers, cribs, strollers, and bibs.
She did not want to buy anything with-
out first assessing safety, usefulness,
and developmental appropriateness.
The analysis led the 34-year-old lawyer
to a state verging on despair.

“It was overwhelming,” said White,
who lives in Stow, Mass. with her hus-
band. “I would try to cram all the
research in on weekends, but there was
never enough time.”

Cue the Baby Coordinators, the lat-
est entry in the burgeoning “baby plan-
ning” field that helps expectant parents
prepare for a new baby by advising on
everything from the most absorbent
diapers and sleekest strollers to deco-
rating a nursery and readying a pet. For
a fee of $250, Kristén DiCicco of Natick,
a Baby Coordinators cofounder, walked
White through Babies “R” Us. She
offered the pros and cons of products,
and when White left the store, she had
a baby registry list and peace of mind.

As a growing number of older
women - many professionals, with dis-

‘posable income - join the ranks of
bulging bellies, pregnancy has acquired
a slew of luxurious accoutrements.
There are prenatal spa treatments, per-
sonal pregnancy chefs, prebaby vacation
packages known as “babymoons,”
“push presents” given to a mother to
reward her for carrying and delivering a
baby, prepacked hospital bags contain-
ing items like a hard-cover journal and
breath mints, and now, baby planning -
a kind of full-flight concierge service
for the pregnant.

Baby planning first surfaced in Eng-
land and on the West Coast, in Los
Angeles and Portland, Ore., two years
ago as a variation on the concept of
wedding planning. It has caught on in
other cities, including Boston, where
two start-ups were launched in the last

AVON Wy FMA YD) eR TTEN ENS 8S seortgt

Easing parent-to-
be overload

year by women who say the market is
ripe for their services.

“A baby is so important - so ‘wouldn’ t
you want someone to assist you with
all the research you need to do to get
ready?” said Sandee Tisdale, 29, a social
worker who cofounded Perfecting
Expecting, of the Back Bay. Skeptics
say that baby planning promotes the
commercialization of parenting and the
belief that parenting can be perfected
with products or bought advice, rather
than with reliance on intuition and the
advice of family and friends.

“That’s part of the commercialized
culture: You can’t do this yourself, you
need experts,” said Susan Linn, a psy-
chologist at the Judge Baker Children’s
Center, a Harvard Medical School affil-
iate in Boston’s Mission Hill, who has
studied the effects of marketing on par-
ents and children.

Linn said employing a baby planner
robs parents of the opportunity to learn
to make choices on behalf of a child.

“Part of getting ready for a baby is
having the experience of making deci-
sions that are going to affect someone
else, a child you love,” Linn said.

For Emily Carines, 32, a massage

_ therapist from Brighton, the prospect of

navigating pregnancy and parenthood,
and the ever-growing number of prod-
ucts that now accompany the journey
was daunting.

“Being someone who hasn’t really
been around babies or kid products, I
just didn’t know what to choose,”
Carines said, whose family is in South
Carolina. “I was overwhelmed by the
little things - which toys to buy, which
are developmentally helpful.”

Her baby planner, DiCicco,
proved instrumental on more
than the toy front, she said.
DiCicco helped her choose ;
a diaper pail, opting for a
brand that does not
require special bags -
something Carines hopes
will be a money- and has-
sle-saver.

For other women, the
clincher is the time sav-

ings that baby planners offer.

“To be a really good mom, you want
to pick the best for your baby, and that
takes a while,” said Erica Aguilar, 29, of
Framingham, who works in the mer-
chandising division for TJX Compa-
nies Inc. and said she came across hun-
dreds of baby product reviews online. “I

‘could have spent hours and hours read-

ing. ... I didn’t want to have to read
them all myself.”

So she hired a baby planner.

“It was worth every penny,” Aguilar
said.

Boston-area baby planners say their
clients are working women, in their late
20s to mid 30s. Most look for help
putting together baby registries and
baby-proofing their homes, but a num-
ber of other services are offered, includ-
ing “babymoon” planning, daddy
preparation, and readying birth
announcements.

Perfecting Expecting charges $100
for baby registry consultation and $500
for putting together a complete reg-
istry, $100 for help maternity shopping
and $500 for baby shower preparation.
The Baby Coordinators charge $250 to
compile a baby registry, $300 to arrange
and set up a nursery, and $200 to baby-
proof a home.

DiCicco, of the Baby Coordinators,
who is not a mother, and her partner,
Paula Spurling, a mother of two, said

they learned about baby arrival prepa-
ration from working at day-care cen-
ters and as nannies.

Tisdale, of Perfecting Expecting, and
her partner, Kristen Parker, research
operations manager for Harvard Med-
ical Schoo!’s pathology department, nei-
ther of whom have children, said they
watched pregnant friends struggle to

’ make sense of the array of baby prod- °.

ucts, realized there was a market for
offering expertise, and then burrowed
into research.

“] thought if one person had all the
knowledge,” it would save everyone
“so much time,” Tisdale said.

Both companies have partnerships
with baby-product companies. The
Baby Coordinators receive 10 percent
of the sale proceeds from clients they
send to two companies, Your Bags Are
Packed and Baby-Strong, DiCicco said.
Perfecting Expecting has business part-
ners that give discounts to clients, and
those companies send business to Per-
fecting Expecting, Tisdale said.

Carolyn McLoughlin, 28, a therapist
who lives in Brookline, said that after
watching a friend spend 30 hours
researching strollers, she decided she
would go the baby-planning route.

“We wanted to put a lot of thought |
into adding a new family member, but
we didn’t have the time,” McLoughlin
said. “Also, I don’t like shopping.”

What do you want to be known for?

“Unless you deliberately decide what
you want, you will end up with what
you get.”

Michelle M. Miller

BEING deliberate

about your
approach to life is an
incredibly empowering
experience. It is a way of
boldly stepping to the
music that beats within
your own heart, even if
those around you don’t
quite understand. This is
the art of living the life you
were born fo live.



Sadly, most people have no idea
what this experience is like, having

bought a manufactured lifestyle, driven
solely by external validations. What lies

beneath such facades is the relatively
empty shell that amounts to what they
become known for or the remnants of
what they leave behind.

There are countless stories of infight-

ing over material possessions left
behind by parents or loved ones, even-
tually resulting in family members los-
ing sight of the possible good qualities
their loved one ‘Tay have been ‘known
for’.
Hearing about such sad tragedies

makes you wonder which is better — to

have infighting and be known only for
the ‘things’ you leave behind or to
leave no material things but be known
for the humble qualities that you pos-
sessed.

I suppose that, considering today’s
money-oriented perspective, some may
say that you have a ‘responsibility’ to
leave some form of worldly possessions
for your loved ones, even if it serves to
build hate rather than love.

Such quandary certainly lends value
to the notion to be deliberate about
what you want to be known for.
Because the reality is whether you
decide to be deliberate or not, you are
in fact leaving your footprints wherever
you go.

So, if you could only be known for
one thing, what would it be? Here are a
few thoughts for your consideration:-

Will you be known for:-
Contributing or complaining?
Healing or hurting?
Accepting or rejecting?
Empathy or apathy?

Building up or tearing down?
Adding or depleting value?
Solving or creating problems?
Optimist or pessimist?
Growing or shrinking?
Standing tall or playing small?

IT ALL BEGINS ©
‘WHEN YOU DECIDE

Nothing will change until you
change.

Regardless of your circumstances,
you possess the inherent power to
transform your life and the life of those
you encounter. But it will only begin

when you decide.

Too many ignore the need to discern
the real purpose for which they were
created; busy buying into the illusion
that life is only for the acquisition of
things.

And as it is in their waking moments,

so it is upon their departure. They are

known only for the ‘small’ things in life,

such as the enormous house they own,
the grandiose car they drove, the pres-
tigious titles they held or the exclusive
groups to which they belong.

While these things may hold some
value, seeking to partake in the loftier
goal of life (which is to enrich the
expansion of life itself) requires that
you swim below the surface.

I encourage you make a personal
commitment to become known for
more than mere things. Instead be

. known for the lives you touch, the

hurts you heal, the smiles you shared,
the gratitude you express and the
greatness you inspire.

Remember — you entered into this
world with nothing and you will leave
this earth with nothing.

Today is the perfect day; make up
your mind to make something better
happen.

IT’S IMPORTANT for pregnant women to be true to their own style and wear clothes that uplift them and
make them feel good about being pregant.



Staying

m@ By JEFFARAH GIBSON

YES, there is the unpleas-
ant feeling of morning sick-
ness, nausea and extreme
fatigue, but should oestrogens
and progesterones keep
women from staying fashion-
able during their first, second

_and third trimesters of preg-

nancy.
Most women regard fashion
during pregnancy as non-exis-
tent and exclude it from their
daily lives. The horrible feel-
ings they experience during
their pregnancy sometimes
hinder their inner fashion.
Monique Wilson, 27, insur-
ance worker, said that she has
been pregnant for six months

and it was difficult for her to -

stay fashionable.
“In the beginning, I never
really cared that much about

. my appearance. The morning

fashionable —
while pregnant |

tant women not to look their
best in those nine months.

Monique Wilson said it’s
important for pregnant women
to look good, especially if they
have husbands. “Pregnant
women should try to look
great at every opportunity,
especially if you have. a hus-
band or are living with a
boyfriend® You don’t want
your husband or boyfriend to
become unattracted to you
since you gained a few extra
pounds. So we must continue
to keep ourselves looking fab-
ulous.”

Looking good during preg-
nancy can influence the way
an expectant woman feels. It’s
okay to take your fashion
statement up a notch. Preg-
nant women should revolu-
tionise their hair and change
the style up a bit and rid them-
selves of their uniformed look.

Another expectant mother,



Most women regard fashion

and exclude it from their aay lives.



sickness had me stricken, I

- never felt like doing anything

really. But after a while I

realised that I should not let ,

myself go and that I should
not look how I felt.”

There are many ways preg-
nant women can stay ravish-
ing during their trimesters.
There are a variety of mater-
nity stores located in Nassau
that cater to women of all
Sizes.

Pregnancy with Elegance,
located on Mount: Royal
Avenue, is a maternity store
that offer maternity apparel
for all occasions, including
career, formal and church
wear. With maternity clothing
available to pregnant women
there is no reason for éxpec-

Agata Duncanson, 34, wait-

ress, said she has been fash-
ion-savvy during her seven
months of pregnancy. She said
she sometimes experiments
with her maternity wardrobe.

“Before I became pregnant I
wore very, light colours but
now that I have a big, rounded
belly I usually stick with dark
shades since they make you
look a little bit slim.”

The rules of fashion can be
broken at any time. It’s impor-

‘tant for pregnant women to be

true to their own style and
wear clothes that uplift them
and make them feel good
about being pregnant.

So if you are satisfied with
hot pink or ruby red, its your
prerogative!

‘WOMEN, usually slgeiaoe

This may include ensuring that the clothing
they wear not only fits perfectly but accentuates ‘
their figure.

While wearing nicely fitting clothes is of con-
siderable importance, obsessing about how the
hair looks is of a greater concern.
