hampering operations in both

departments of the island's

m@ By TANEKA THOMPSON

A MOTHER of seven was
taken to hospital yesterday after
a passing neighbour thwarted

what is believed to be her,

attempt to commit suicide. The
neighbour saw the. woman
"hanging from a tree" in the

bushes near her mother's home

on Pitt Road.

According to reports from |

residents of the area, the neigh-
bour was walking along a dirt
path in the bushy area yesterday
morning when he spotted the
‘victim trying to end her life.
After rescuing her, neighbours
called police. Unconfirmed

reports: from residents of the °

area state the victim may have

tried to slit her wrists before she |

tried to hang herself.

The Tribune spoke with the

victim's mother, Princess
Knowles, outside her home. Ms
Knowles said she was asleep
when her 28-year-old daughter,

who she said has long-standing
drug abuse issues, came to her
home to see her.

Ms Knowles said she was
tired from a long work-shift the
night before and told her
daughter to come back in an
hour for breakfast. Minutes lat-
er, Ms Knowles said she was
wakened by the shocking news
of what is believed to be her
daughter's attempt to end her
life.

- "I didn't really see it because ©

where I worked last night I was

_sleepy, but my neighbour called

me and she tell me (my daugh-

ter) tried to kill herself and I

tell them to call the police."
She said the news stunned

' her: "I was very surprised. I did-

n't (think) she would do some-
thing like that. I didn't know it
was that bad. When she (came
here) I tell her, 'Wait ‘lil while,
let me get another hour sleep
man', so I thought she went to

sit out under the tree 'til I wake ©

A MOTHER of two claims she is strug-

delays have set back her pursuit of justice
against a Defence Force officer.

Ernestine Sands, 49, is totally frustrated
after the latest twist in a year and a half
long saga that saw her already postponed
court date — and any potential resolution
to the matter —postponed again on Mon-
day.

She is suing the Defence Force officer for
the return of $3,900, which she said she
gave him for the purchase of a car. She
never received the car.

The mother turned to the civil courts
after the officer failed to comply with a
judgment ordering him to pay his debt,

FORTY-TWO employees of the Casino at the
Emerald Bay Resort, Exuma, have been issued letters
of termination and are demanding their severance
packages before the casino closes.

Yesterday, staff of the Pinnacle Entertainment casi-
no spoke out against the actions of the company,
claiming that Pinnacle was attempting to “hoodwink”
some of them into accepting “temporary employ-

’ ment” through January 2009 instead of their severance
packages. ;

New drive against

Bahamas breast

cancer ‘epidemic’



Local health group teams up with US Embassy and other partners

m@ By LLOYD ALLEN



IN an effort to assist in the
research and treatment of
breast cancer throughout the
Bahamas, the Cancer Society

yesterday announced the launch’

of the Bahamas Breast Cancer
Initiative in conjunction with
the United States Embassy and
other partners.

US Ambassador Ned Siegel, _

along with his wife Stephanie
Siegel, formally announced the

- launch of the new initiative.

Ambassador Siegel said in his
presentation that recent reports
have revealed that more than
40 per cent of Bahamian
women who are diagnosed with
breast cancer, and subsequent-

ly die of the disease, are under

the age of 50.

“Even if we cannot eradicate
this disease, through our efforts
we can certainly improve the
odds for so many Bahamian

. women through early detection,

proper education, and excellent
care,” said Ambassador Siegel.

The ambassador explained
that the main function of the
BBCI is to facilitate collabora-
tion between Bahamian and

American medical profession- .

als in'an united effort to
improve research and Breyeny
tion methods.

‘He said that increased efforts

~ by BBCI and others is the only.

answer to the breast cancer
“epidemic.”

BRCThas also partnered with

the Susan G Komen foundation

‘in its effort to improve breast

cancer education, awareness,
treatment and prevention in the
Bahamas.

President of the foundation

- Hala Moddelmog said that so
far, the Susan G Komen group

has invested more than $100
million in research, treatment,

“Mud, Pigeon Pea ‘will

HAITIAN migrants living
in the Mud and Pigeon Pea
slums in the centre of Marsh
Harbour, Abaco, will not be
repatriated indiscriminately,
Minister of Immigration
Branville McCartney said yes-
terday... ©

A Tribune visit to the com-
munity of up: to 5,000: people
living in dangerous and unsan-
itary conditions on govern-
ment and private land opposite
the Abaco Immigration office
raised concerns about how the
mix of legal and illegal
migrants and their Bahamian
Gesgpndenls will be ordered.

Immigration officers in Marsh
Harbour on Tuesday identi-
fied 20 suspected illegal immi-
grants in Peas and the Mud

detention centre awaiting
Bahamasair flights to Haiti.
-Mr McCartney said there
are regular patrols of the Peas
and the Mud, but the migrant
Haitian community estab-
lished around 30 years ago is a
complicated problem.
He said: "It is not straight-

Cancer. survivor. is

‘a symbol of hope’

BH By LLOYD ALLEN

A BREAST cancer survivor
who lost her father, sister and
daughter to different types of

_cancer, has become a symbol
of hope for a new breast can-
cer awareness initiative in the
Bahamas. 4

Toni Lewis, 37, is a recent
survivor of breast cancer and is
the subject of a painting that is
recognised by the Bahamas
Breast Cancer Initiative
(BBCI) as its “image of hope”.

The BBCI is.a new initiative.
by the Bahamas Cancer Soci-

ety, in conjunction with United

States Embassy and other
partners, to assist in the
research and treatment of
breast cancer.

Mrs Lewis, speaking yester-

day at the launch of the initia-
tive, said that she was faced
with many challenges on her -
toad to recovery.

Her father died from liver
cancer at the age of 30, and
her sister died at the age of 20
from cancer, which was discoy-

ered after she had a tooth
-. removed.

Mrs Lewis was diagnosed
with: breast cancer in Novem-
ber 2006.

Just five months after her
diagnosis, her eight-year-old
daughter Treasure died as a
result of bone cancer.

Mrs Lewis said that through
it all she has learned that a

‘ cancer diagnosis is not the end.

For her, she said, it was only
the beginning and added that
she is proud to be part of the
BBCTI’s efforts.

Mrs Lewis said she hopes
that more Bahamian women
make the effort to become
educated about breast cancer.

Medical researchers have
noted that there is an unusual-
ly high rate of cancer among
Bahamians, particularly young
Bahamians.

They also fear’that an alarm-
ing number of Bahamian
women may carry a gene that
significantly increases the
chances of developing breast
cancer.

like that, and we hope some-
thing can be done about it, but

Our main concern generally i 1S

that Haitians who arrive in the

country are dealt with in terms —

of international law, as in the
past we don't think the gov-

ernment has done enough to -

investigate Haitians with
refugee status."

However, Mr McCartney,
who has taken an aggressive
approach to the repatriation
of Haitian migrants since he
came to office in June, said
care is being taken to distin-
guish genuine refugees escap-
ing political violence in Haiti
which has put their lives in
danger.

He said: "Our officers do
make a distinction between
Haitians who are refugees and

migrants who are here for eCO-

nomic feasons."_
The Bahamas has agreed to
protocols under the office of
the United Nations High Com-
missioner for Refugees which
protects and supports refugees
and assists in their return or
resettlement.
Director of Immigration
Vernon Burrows has said:
"Some people think the most
popular thing to do would be

‘to take drastic measures, but

of course we cannot do that.
We have got to work within
the framework we have signed
up to."

Around $2 anion has been
allocated 'to the Department
of Immigration for repatria-
tion exercises this fiscal
year.

MANY BAHAMIANS now want to know
if BEC is passing on its full fuel costs to the
consumer. The reason for the question is that

citizens know that between its oil spills, and. .

gas guzzling turbines, BEC is not.the most
efficient corporation in trying to keep down
its fuel costs.

Bahamians resent the thought — which is
now a conviction — that in addition to high-
er fuel costs, taxpayers are also paying for
this corporation’s built-in inefficiency.

They want to know if government should
not take this inefficiency into consideration
and shoulder some of the cost.

Of course, in the end it all comes back to
the taxpayer, but at least what’s shaved off
the gas bill can be put somewhere else where
the average citizen will have at least a choice
as to whether he needs the commodity or
can bypass it because he can’t afford it. With
BEC the consumer has no choice.

Unless he wants to go back to the cave
and live in darkness, he has no choice over his
fuel supply. If he wants light, he has to trade
with BEC.

Someone was telling us this week of a’

businessman who ran his generator to reduce
his light bill. After a time, ‘he discovered that
it was cheaper for him to provide fuel for his

generator to keep his lights burning than.to._.

face BEC’s quarterly rates.

Apparently, according to our informant, an
inspector, presumably from BEC, caught on
to what was happening. The businessman
was told he was breaking the law. To be using
his generator when BEC’s electricity was
available was not permitted, he was told.

“It’s not that I could go down the road
and select a cheaper company to do business
with,” he said. He resented the fact that he
was forced to trade with a government-owned
corporation he believed was making no effort -
to protect his interests by trying to operate a
cheaper, more efficient plant, and now that he

‘had decided to assist himself, he was to be
prosecuted.

And so the complaints have porte dai-

ly getting louder.
Jerome Elliott, head of BEC’s internal

renewable energy committee, says the cor-'--

poration has received a lot of interest from
Bahamas-based and international sources on
its Renewable Energy Power Generation
Tender, which closes September 12.

He said the tender invited proposals from _.

solar, wind, hydrokinetic (wave and ocean)
and biomass. “As far as the Bahamas is con-
cerned,” said Mr Elliott, “the world is moving

on towards renewable energy. We have to

be a player, no matter how minimal it is. If
there is a shift away from traditional forms of
generation, we can’t be the last person in
line. We have to be a player in that regard.”

The world is desperate to be free of Mid-
dle East oil and unstable oil-producing
nations, headed by volatile dictators who can

‘hold nations to ransom for an expensive oil

barrel.

Even the once feared nuclear plant is com-
ing into its own. France produces 80 per cent
of its energy needs from nuclear plants and
more Americans are asking: “If France can °
safely do it why can’t we?”

Oil companies are drilling for oil in our —

waters. We think we would prefer a natural
gas storage plant on Ocean Cay than ugly
oil rigs marring our marine landscape.

There is even a marijuana group that
explains that the reason it wants to legalize
“hemp has little to do with getting high, but a
great deal to do with fighting oil giants like
the once-powerful Saddam Hussein, Exxon
and Iran.”

The marijuana lobby claims that hemp is. _ |.

such.a.versatile raw material that its “products
not. only.compete with petroleum, but with
coal, natural gas, nuclear energy, pharma-

ceutical, timber and textile companies.” This ,
_ group has estimated that “methane and

methanol production alone from hemp grown
as bio-mass could replace 90 per cent of the
world’s energy needs.”

We can by-pass that suggestion.

On.-August 12, Russell Miller, Bahamas
Hotel Association president, wrote to Prime
Minister Hubert Ingraham, admitting that
the association hadn’t the resources or exper-
tise to ascertain the environmental impact
of the AES LNG (natural gas) proposal,-but
if it passed government’s due diligence tests, .
then it is “clear that the conversion to natur-
al gas by BEC will significantly reduce our
present level of carbon emissions.

“We are confident,” he told the Prime
Minister, “that any environmental concerns

with this proposal can be adequately .

addressed and that the benefits to businesses
and residents far outweigh any potential lim-
ited impact. Prime Minister, we should note
that outside of payroll costs, energy costs are

‘ EDITOR, The Tribune.

ON Monday, August 4,

~ 2008 (which was the holiday),
I accompanied my sister and —

my four-month-old niece to
the Princess Margaret Hospi-
tal because she was experi-
encing bronchial problems,
lack of appetite and a runny
nose.

In fact she had eeome
quite pale whilst in our care;
all the reason why we consid-
ered our case an extreme
emergency.

Upon our arrival, we fol-

lowed the regular routine and
registered my niece which also

‘entailed informing the nurse
-at the front desk about her

symptoms.
To my disbelief, she told us

to return the following day

because there was not a pae-
diatrician on duty at that time,
and there was not going to be
one scheduled for that day.
Unbelievable!

Do they believe that babies
become ill only when paedia-
tricians are scheduled to

-work?

After gathering my

thoughts, I then ask if another

doctor or nurse could at least
see the baby as there is an
antenatal ward in the hospi-
tal.

More than likely someone

Government: should’ have pulled
the plug on ‘Bahamar saga long ago

_ EDITOR, The Tribune.

THE time has long since
come and gone when the gov-
ernment should have pulled

_ the plug on the Cable Beach

saga involving Bahamar.

It is obvious that the princi-
pals of that company are
“challenged” with many

issues, apparently, such as:

financing; employee morale;
no vision; no credible casino
operator and, of course, pos-
sibly inept Bahamian and for-
eign managers.

The “deal”, made originally - -

under the defunct PLP admin-
istration was a bad-one to start
with. Too much Crown land

“he Haberdusher or Gentlemen’





was “given away” for pittance
money, ab initio (from the
beginning), was an apparent
“problem”.
With the closure of the Nas-

sau Beach Hotel, the “kiss of :

death”: loomed on this fiasco.
The recent dismissal of scores

of long time, hard working |

employees, including my
eldest child, Tamicka Bodie
Johnson (a sous chef with over
10 years experience) was the
straw that broke the camel’s

back. Bahamar in my view, is
not.a good deal for the
Bahamas and should be ter-
minated at the earliest oppor-
tunity.

POLICE will take appropri-
ate action wherever it is deter-
mined that officers are con-
ducting themselves in a “sub-
standard” manner or doing
things that they should not be,

Acting Commissioner of Police

Reginald Ferguson said yester-
day.

According to the commis-
sioner, the fact that a proposed
transfer of numerous officers
from the Central Police Station
in the wake of corruption
claims has yet to go ahead does
not mean that it is not going to.

And in the meantime, an
investigation is underway
despite the fact that the offi-
cers remain, said Mr Ferguson.

The officers were accused
three weeks ago of smuggling
alcohol and drugs into the sta-
tion for inmates detained there,
as well as facilitating visits from
their wives and girlfriends with
whom they were allowed to
have sex at the station.

Jamaican suspect Omar
Smith, wanted in connection
with a drug case, was also able
to escape from the station on
July:21 — allegedly with the help
of certain officers there.

On Tuesday, officer in charge
of Central, Chief Superinten-
dent Bernis Pinder said that the
group of officers had not been
moved in the week and a half
since it was announced they

i . would be because their replace-

ments “have not arrived”.

He previously indicated the
transfer should be finalised by
the end of last week.

Since then, more damaging

-claims have emerged about offi-
cers at the station, with it being
suggested an inmate suffered a
broken arm on Monday after
being “beaten” in a cell at the
station by some officers.

The offending officers includ-
_ed some.of those who were set
to be transferred because of the
_ corruption claims, the daily
reported. ,

queried as to whether the inci-

who are set to be transferred.

However,.he expressed con-
fidence that the officers will yet
be moved, adding that the
investigation into the original
claims is ongoing despite the
fact that they remain at Cen-
tral.

“It was determined they
should be transferred (and)
there are certain procedures to
go through to effect that,” said
Mr Ferguson.

“The transfer process is han-
dled by the officer down there,
Mr Pinder. I’m sure he’s going
to get that done because that’s
the instructions that are out
there, for those officers to be

The police chief downplayed
the injuries suffered by the
inmate during the latest inci-
dent on Monday — claiming that
rather than being beaten until
his arm was broken, his limb
was sprained while he attempt-
ed to resist being searched by
an officer who caught him
smoking at the back of the
prison bus as it returned to Fox
Hill.

“In the process of trying to _

get (the inmate) out of the bus

he put up a resistance,” said Mr

efforts to attract more Bahami-
ans to careers in the maritime
industry.

“There are a lot of opportuni-
ties there. Great careers can be
established,” said John Moyell,
vice-president of Clipper Group
on Monday he prepared for the
first Bahamas International Mar-
itime Conference and Trade
Show scheduled to take place in
Freeport, Grand Bahama.

“We work very closely with the
Bahamas Maritime Cadet Corps
to spread the word around for
young Bahamians-to be more
interested in sea-going careers.

“We have young Bahamian
cadets on some of our ships, but
we sure do not have enough,” he
said: Beginning November 19 at
the Westin at Our Lucaya Resort,
the three-day conference and
trade show will showcase the mul-
tiple facets of the Bahamas’ mar-
itime industry, particularly as they
relate to trans-shipment, trade,
ship ownership, registry services,
ship repair and other things. The
theme is “Opportunities in Trade
and Maritime Services”.

Kamanna Valluri, managing

“look forward to playing an even

a time when stakeholders come

He met with Nassau-based

await qualified Bahamians, and
with the proposed amendment to

can encourage more Bahamians

“There is also a huge and grow-

“-we want to expand our registry

more opportunities for Bahami-

‘High quality desalinated
water comes to Acklins

Large projects planned for Green Turtle Cay and Little Exuma for late 2008

THE residents of Snug Cor-
ner, Mason’s Bay in Central
Acklins and Salina Point in
South Acklins, are enjoying
high quality desalinated water
for the first time in the history
of the island as a result of recent
works completed by the Water
and Sewerage Corporation.

Both communities have
brand new distribution piping
systems supplied by new desali-
nation plants.

Over 100 customers are
already connected and more are
being processed daily accord-
ing to Corporation officials.

“The Corporation is very
appreciative of the support pro-
vided and understanding dis-

played by the communities dur-.

ing the project and it is hoped
that a formal commissioning
ceremony will be scheduled in
the near future to formally
mark this achievement,” said

manager of the Family Islands
and marine operations for the
Water and Sewerage Corpora-
tion. The Acklins project includ-
ed approximately 23,000 feet of
new mains in Snug Corner,
Mason’s Bay, and another
12,000 feet of new water mains
in Salina Point. In addition to
the new water.supply, an oper-
ations centre for Corporation
customers was completed in
Snug Corner which will serve
as.a commercial centre for Cor-
poration customers on the
island and as a staff facility.

Total project expenditure was
well over $1 million.

This project follows on the
heels of the Long Cay desali-

nation plant project that was _

completed in August 2007 and
the Sweetings Cay desalination
plant project that was complet-
ed in March 2008.

Next on the Corporation’s
agenda is a small desalination

plant and distribution system
for Current Island, Eleuthera.

The Corporation has award-
ed a contract to Watermakers
Incorporated for the supply and
operation of the desalination
plant and bidding is now in
progress for the installation of.
the distribution system.

It is hoped that this new

- desalinated water supply could

be operational and ready for
this Christmas:

Meanwhile in Little Exuma, -
the Corporation is preparing to.

extend distribution and trans-
mission mains from Rolletown
to’ Williams Town at a cost of
over $2 million. The tender
process for these works should

_commence shortly. The Corpo- _.
ration has also received the gov-

ernment’s approval to proceed
with a $3.6 million project to
serve all of Green Turtle Cay,
Abaco, via an underwater main
from mainland Abaco. The pro-

Religious leaders call on Governor ener

ject will consist of approxi-
mately 15,000 feet of underwa-

‘ter mains and another 26,000

feet of transmission and distri-
bution mains on the island serv-
ing all potential customers.

This will be a complex pro-
ject due to its many components
and it is projected that the initial
supplies will commence during
the summer of 2009.

“The Corporation will con-
tinue to work with the govern-
ment of the Bahamas as we
seek to bring potable water to
each and every resident of the
Bahamas at the earliest oppor-
tunity while appreciating that
due to the archipelagic nature of
the Bahamas and the inherent
logistical challenges and neces-
sary duplications of key systems,
this will require substantial
investment,” said Godfrey Sher-

. man, general manager at the

Water and Sewerage Corpora-
tion.

Bahamas conference to showcase
opportunities in maritime industry

NASSAU-BASED Ship-
ping companies are intensi-
fying their efforts to attract
.more Bahamians to careers

in the maritime industry.

“There are a lot of oppor-
tunities there,” said John

: Moyell, vice president of
the Clipper Group, as they
prepared for the first
Bahamas International Mar-
‘itime Conference and Trade
Show slated for Freeport,
Grand Bahama. “Great

careers can be established. |

“We work very closely
with the Bahamas Maritime
Cadet Corp to spread the
word around for young
Bahamians.to be more
interested in seagoing

* careers.

“We have young Bahami-

an cadets'on some. of our
‘ ships, but we sure do not
have enough.”

Beginning November 19

at the Westin at Our Lucaya








. Resort, the three-day con-

ference and trade show will
showcase the multiple facets
of the Bahamas’ maritime
industry, particularly as they
relate to transshipment,
trade, ship ownership, reg-

istry services, ship repair

and other things. The theme
is ‘Opportunities in Trade
and Maritime Services’.

Address

The conference will be
opened by Prime Minister
Hubert Ingraham and Inter-
national Maritime Organi-
sation secretary general
Efthimios E Mitropoulos
will deliver the keynote
address.

“This will put the
Bahamas on the map as a
leading maritime country,”
said Mr Moyell. “It is
important that we have

Bahamas L

more activities relating to
the maritime world taking
place here.”

Kamanna Valluri, manag- .

ing director and president
of Dockendale Shipping
said they are “look forward
to playing an even greater
role in promoting Bahamian
maritime cadets and engi-
neers.

“There is a demand for
them, and the Bahamas,
having the third largest ship
registry in the world, should
be taking more advantage
of these opportunities.” :

Minister of the Environ- .

ment Earl Deveaux said the
conference and trade show

“is extremely good news for

the Bahamas. It is a time
when stakeholders come
together to discuss issues

facing the industry.”
He met with Nassau-\

based shippers on Monday.
“There is great interest in

growing the maritime indus-
try and we have an early
indication that people in the
industry are prepared to
substantially support an ini-
tiative to develop the mar-
itime. industry in. the
Bahamas,” he said.

Amendment

“Incredible opportuni-
ties” await qualified
Bahamians, and with the
proposed amendment to the
Boat Registration Act “we
can encourage more

Bahamians to get involved -

in the maritime industry,”
said Mr Deveaux.

“There is also a huge and
growing market for large
yachts and we want to
expand our registry in that

direction which could open

more ‘opportunities for
Bahamians.”

Ross University
begins construction
in Grand Bahama

CONSTRUCTION will

begin on the interim campus -

of Ross University on August
25, only four weeks after the
public announcement of the
Bahamas.campus.

The works to be carried out
consist of the fitting out of
around 30,000 square feet of
space in the Seahorse Shop-
ping Centre in Freeport, con-
struction of administration
and faculty spaces as well as
classrooms.

Other support areas such as
restrooms, storage and. IT

spaces will make up the total °

scope of the work. s

The cost of this work will
be around $2 million. Com-
pletion is slated for Decem-
ber 31.

According to ' Bruce

LaFleur, Ross University's

architect and. construction
manager, emphasis was placed
from the start on, hiring local
Grand Bahama firms for the
construction improvements to
the interim Ross campus.

"I was instructed to identify
all of the local firms that had
the resources to complete such
a large project in such a short

.time period. All of the firms I

identified were provided with
the same information, and
were invited to submit sealed
construction bids," explained



“All Bahamas
Construction Ltd.
is pleased to have
this opportunity
to work with
Ross University
on this important
project.” —



Wolfgang Geiger

LaFleur.

In keeping with Ross poli-
cies regarding an open and fair
bidding process, all bidders
were asked to be present at
the meeting on August 20
when sealed bids were first
presented to Ross, and
opened in front of all bidders.

‘Each bid was read publicly
and Verified for completeness
by. Ross officials and Bruce

. LaFleur and Associates. Once .

this process was completed the
bid was awarded to the lowest
bidder, which was All
Bahamas Construction Co Ltd
(ABC).

"We had two goals for this
process," said Sandi Cutler,
Ross vice president for plan-

ning and business develop-.

Bank Teller
Training

SmartChoice

ment, who is overseeing the
Bahamas project. "The first
was to select a local firm capa-
ble of completing this com-
plex project. The second was
to begin to establish a local

teputation for fair and honest

business dealings. We plan to
build a number of additional
structures over the next few’
years and want the local build-
ing industry to know that
every company will have

equal access to our business.

We plan to use a similar pub-
lic process for future con-
struction projects."

President of ABC Wolfgang ©

-Geiger said: "All Bahamas

Construgtion Ltd. is pleased

_to have this opportunity to

work with Ross University on
this important project, and we
will work diligently and effec-
tively to complete the interim
campus for their January 2009
opening."

Classes for the first semester

' of the Bahamas Ross Univer-

sity interim campus are set to
commence in January 2009
with around 250 students and
50 faculty and staff.

The hiring of staff and fac-’
ulty is already underway. The

Women receive gifts and certificates of
appreciation from Tourism officials

expressed, appreciation for two

long-time visitors to the

with the women recently to
thank them for their lifelong
relationship with the islands

of the Bahamas. She present-
ed them with authentically
Bahamian gifts and certificates
of appreciation.

The women, who both teach
in the New York school sys-
tem, have visited the Bahamas
at least once each year for
more than 30 years.

For several years, they vis-
ited three times in one year.

“Tt used to be every time we
were on break, we were here,”
said Ms Simmons.

“When we weren’t in
school, we were here in Nas-
sau.’

The women made their lat-

. est trip to Nassau this August

IN honour of Independence Day, and ‘in an effort to promote
domestic tourism, Furniture Plus decided to send two customers,
plus one guest each, to the’ country’s “Pineapple Capital” for a
weekend of exploration and enjoyment.

First class Furniture Plus promotion winners Denise Feast of Nas-
sau and Nicole Holbert of Grand Bahama each won an all-expense
paid getaway for two to the Valentine’s Resort in Harbour Island,
Eleuthera, with round-trip transportation provided by Regional Air
and Sky Bahamas, along with Bahamas Fast Ferries.

Customers who made a minimum purchase of $250 during the
month of July were eligible to enter the competition.

Coming out on top were Ms Feast and Ms Holbert.

“These ladies demonstrated their super sense of style and nation-
al pride by accentuating their respective homes with tasteful selec-
tions from Furniture Plus,” the furniture store said i in a press
release.

“Promotion sponsors Bahamas Fast F erries, iene with Region-
al Air and Sky Bahamas, will ensure that Denise, Nicole and their

" guests are transported in total comfort and style to the pristine, pink

shores of Harbour Island. Upon arrival they will be welcomed at
Valentine’s, the island’s premier vacation resort, where they’ll
experience the finest accommodations and highest level of ser-
vice provided at this world renowned yachter’s paradise,” Furniture
Plus said. —

-This year’s “Eleuthera getaway” is the second installment in
the Furniture Plus “Island Hop Series”, where lucky patrons enter

‘to win weekend getaways to locations across the Bahamas.

It is a continuing effort on the company’s part to boost domestic
tourism and give more Bahamians a first-hand opportunity to
experience the beauty and bounty of the islands, Furniture Plus said.

There are several more island getaways planned exclusively for,

Furniture Plus customers for the remainder of the year. These
include trips to some of the tourism industry’s “best kept secret”
island destinations.

’ Furniture Plus was founded in December of 1988 by the late Paul
Patrick Tyrone d’Arville and his son, Troy T d’Arville.

Over the past 20 years, Furniture Plus has grown into one of the
Bahamas’ leading furniture stores with a wide selection of furniture
that includes kitchen, bedroom, dining, and living room, as well as
home office furnishings and accessories.

PAIR FILL POSTS OF SECONDARY SCHOOL COORDINATOR AND MIDDLE SCHOOL COORDINATOR

Lucaya International School promotes two
Grand Bahama teachers to key positions

AS all schools prepare for
the new year, Lucaya Inter-
national School (LIS) will
open this Thursday with two
well-known Grand Bahama
teachers promoted to key
positions.

Nigel Kirkby and Catherine
Hindley, who have both
taught in Grand Bahama for
many years, will now take on
the responsibilities of sec-
ondary school coordinator and
middle school coordinator
respectively.

Mr Kirkby began his
Bahamian teaching career at
St Andrew's International
School in Nassau in 1990,
where he was a physical edu-
cation teacher until leaving
the island and moving to
Grand Bahama in 1996.

He transferred to the gov-
ernment system at Walter
Parker Primary for five years.

Mr Kirkby then went on to
teach at the Discovery School,
now renamed Bishop Michael
Eldon, for two years until'he
joined the Lucaya Interna-
tional School staff in 2004 as
the physical education teacher
and CAS coordinator.

"I am very pleased to have
been given this opportunity to
help continue the develop-
ment of the high school pro-
gramme," he said.

"I look forward to helping
provide and improve our first
class international education
with a Bahamian flavour.”

Mr Kirkby will continue to

Mrs Hindley, who is well
known to many former stu-
dents in Grand Bahama will
now become the LIS middle

and has been part of the rapid
development of the school
over the years.

"I am looking forward to
the challenge of this new posi-
tion," said Mrs Hindley.

"I know that with the coop-

Mrs Hindley will be respon-
sible for the middle school
curriculum, assessment and
pastoral care for the students.
She will also coordinate after-
school clubs and CAS up to
year 11, which is an integral
part of the International Bac-
calaureate system.

School Director Mark Gif-



‘The Spectra5/CERATO has a sporty attitude with its sport-

ford noted "Mrs Hindley's in-
depth knowledge of the stu-

dents in her care will be a real.

asset in creating a supportive
environment for the students."
Lucaya International School
is coming off a very successful
year with 90 per cent of the
2008 IB class awarded the
prestigious IB Diploma.
This is an exceptional

’ achievement for a small school

and surpasses the average

international pass rate, which

was at 78 per cent.

The school is now concen-,

trating on the opening of the
International Baccalaureate

Study Centre. This 5,700-
square foot building will give
the school an additional six
classrooms, a study room, and

teacher's office, all on land | .

adjacent to the school.

“We are very excited about

this new school year," said Mr
Gifford.

"With both Mr Kirkby and
Mrs Hindley being able to
make a greater contribution
to the school and the success
of our IGCSE results we look

forward to our school's

increasing growth in the high

Arctic sea ice drops
to the second lowest
level on record

@ WASHINGTON

MORE ominous signs Wednes-
day have scientists saying that a
global warming “tipping point”
in the Arctic seems to ibe hap-
pening before their eyes: Sea ice
in the Arctic Ocean is atjits sec-
ond lowest level in about 30 years,
according to Associated Press.

The National Snow and Ice
Data Center reported that sea ice
in the Arctic now covers about
2.03 million square miles. The
lowest point since satellite mea-
surements-began in 1979 was 1.65

million square miles set last Sep-

tember.

With about three weeks left in
the Arctic summer, this year
could wind up breaking that pre-
vious record, scientists said.

Arctic ice always melts in sum-
mer and refreezes in winter. But
over the years, more of the ice is
lost to the sea with less of it recov-
ered in winter. While ice reflects
the sun’s heat, the open ocean
absorbs more heat and the melt-

ing accelerates warming in other —

- parts of the world.

Sea ice also serves as primary
habitat for threatened polar
bears. |

“We could very well be in that

senior scientist Mark Serreze at

“Tt’s tipping now. We're seeing it
happen now.’

Within “five to less than ‘10
years,” the Arctic could be free of

NASA ice scientist Jay Zwally.

“It also means that climate
warming is also coming larger and
faster than the models are pre-
dicting and nobody’s really taken
into account that change yet,” he
said.

Five climate scientists, four of

told The Associated Press that it
is fair to call what is happening in
the Arctic a “tipping point.”
NASA scientist James Hansen,
who sounded the. alarm about
global warming 20 years ago
before Congress, said the sea ice
melt “is the best current exam-

yesterday morning, the
frustrated morgue employ-
ees claimed they were wor-
ried about their health
because of mould growth,

They are also agitating for

"We need the money,

they were expecting it in
July and it didn't happen,
again in August when they
received their pay and they
didn't see that happening,"

Mr Pinder said outside
Princess Margaret Hospital
yesterday.

"In relation to the laun-
dry department, there is a
whole list of concerns that
were sent to PMH and to
the union to assist with
having some equipment
that needed to be repaired
to actually make the work-
ing environment more con-
ducive to productivity.
We're saddened that it
takes this kind of action for
them to immediately take
steps. They had installed.
some equipment that was
necessary to run the laun- ~

were not operational."

Mr Pinder said the dis-

"We will stay out here

until we are satisfied until

the matter has been prop: »

Once the working environ-

Mr Pinder said yester-

2009. However, some of the employees ~

that The Tribune stoke to yesterday were
hesitant to accept the company’s offer,
claiming that there was “no guarantee”
that the casino would be open a month
from now — let alone January of next
year.

Furthermore, this temporary employ-
ment, employees claimed, could be used
against them when the company finally
shuts down its casino operations as they
would then not be required to pay them
their full severance packages.

‘attempts suicide’

up (to) get her breakfast for her."
She said her daughter was visibly distraught when the police

aoe -arrived-and had to be-ripped from her arms to be taken to-hospital.

The neighbour, who saved her daughter's life, had left the area for
work by the time a Tribune reporter arrived.

Ms Knowles said her daughter's children, ages five to 14, are all
in the care of the Department of Social Services with the exception .
of the oldest who is incarcerated. Her daughter's last visit to see her
children brought the young mother to tears, Ms Knowles said.

The mother said that she and her daughter have a close rela-
tionship, and she continues to pray for a child who she feels fell in
with bad company.

"(Our relationship) is very, very good. I used to send her to
Miami just about every year but she get in with (bad company) and
get on drugs. I pray for her all the time, she tell me pray for her and
I pray for her, and she still ain’ change. She gone change after
today, I guess."

The Tribune attempted to obtain police confirmation of the inci-
dent, but Press Liaison Officer Assistant Supt Walter Evans said he
was not aware of the attempted suicide.

Up to press time last night, the condition of the victim was

' unknown. This suicide attempt comes.a week after 11-year-old

Devante McPhee of East Street was found by his grandmother

_hanging from a clothesline with a rusty chair next to him.

His death prompted speculation that the young boy may have
been playing some sort of "hanging game" with two other boys.
So far, police have classified his death as accidental.

THE PORT Group Limit-. :

ed (PGL) said that it is
delighted to see the progress
that Ross University has
made.

Ross University has, with-
in only a few weeks, been
able to obtain prices from
local Bahamian contractors
and has actually awarded the

_ contract for preparing their

facilities in order to receive

. students beginning January

2009.
“The bidding method was

. transparent and it is of course

to be appreciated that the
contractors invited were all
Bahamian. No doubt this will
be the beginning of.the
tremendous impact that the
establishment of Ross Uni-
versity will have on the econ-
omy of Grand Bahama
Island, and bodes well for the
future of our island,” the

_PGL said in a statement.

E Christiansen, chairman
of PGL said, “It has only
been a month since the
announcement of the Ross
University Bahamas Campus,
and so we are pleased to see

. that Ross is working aggres-

sively to complete its tempo-
rary campus for January
2009, and has drawn on the
pool of local Bahamian tal-
ent for this endeavour.”

m JERUSALEM

SCIENTISTS using American
space technology have started a
huge project to digitally photo-
graph the Dead Sea Scrolls, the
oldest known version of the
Hebrew Bible, and post it on the
Internet for all to see, Israeli
authorities said Wednesday,
according to Associated Press.

High-tech cameras using
infrared photography are being
used to uncover sections of the
2,000-year-old scrolls that have
faded over the centuries and
become indecipherable, the

Israeli Antiquities Authority said.

The project is expected to take
about five years and the goal is to
make the scrolls accessible to sci-
entists and the general public,
Antiquities Authority official
Pnina Shor said. .

“Now for the first time the
scrolls will be a computer click

away,” said Shor, who heads the
authority’s department responsi-
ble for the conservation of arti-
facts. “This will ensure that the
scrolls are preserved for another
2,000 years.”

Experts have complained for
years that. only a small number
of scholars have been allowed
access to the scrolls and the thou-
sands of fragments that were
found in caves near the Dead Sea
in the late 1940s. In recent years,
steps have been taken to widen
access, but many of the findings

are still not properly identified |

and categorized.

To. protect the scrolls, Shor
said, the new imaging will be
done in a setting that minimizes
exposure to light.

A -pilot project started
Wednesday and when it is fin-

ished, it will be possible to deter-

mine how long it will take to dig-

itize the thousands of fragments

POPPY CULTIVATION ‘HAS DROPPED 19 PER CENT SINCE 2007

UN says Afghanistan’s opium
crop shrinks after record high |

m@ By CARLOTTA GALL
c.2008 New York Times
News Service

KABUL, Afghanistan —
Afghanistan’s opium harvest
has dropped from last year’s
record. high,

contending that the tide of
opium that engulfed
Afghanistan/in ever rising
harvests since 2001 was final-
ly showing signs of ebbing.
“The opium floodwaters in
Afghanistan have started to
recede,” Antonio Maria Cos-

‘ta, the executive director of
the U.N. Office on Drugs and .

Crime, wrote in the foreword
to the 2008 edition of the
annual opium survey, pub-

lished Tuesday. “Afghan soci-

ety, has started to make
progress in ‘its fight against
opium,” Costa added.
Poppy cultivation has
dropped by 19 percent since
2007, and has fallen beneath

2006 levels as well, the report .

said. The harvest is also
down, although by a lesser
margin because of greater
yields, dropping by 6 percent
to an estimated’ 8,500 tons.
More than
Afghanistan’s provinces have
now been declared poppy
free — that is, 18 of 34
provinces grow few or no

poppies, up from 13 poppy-

free provinces last year.

The results, gathered by
the United Nations through
satellite imagery and checks

of effective local leadership
and the support of religious
leaders, elders and local
council members, Costa said:
at a news briefing in Kabul
on Tuesday évening.
Nevertheless, Afghanistan’s
poppy crop still remains the
world’s largest, and now 98
percent of the crop is. grown
in the lawless southern and
southwestern regions that are
in the grip of a virulent insur-

gency. Two-thirds of all opi-.

um in Afghanistan in 2008
was grown in Helmand
Province, where the Taliban
control whole districts. Eight

“

thousand Bata troops work-
ing with government soldiers
have failed to make much

‘ headway in curbing either

Taliban activities or the drug
industry.

“If Helmand were a coun-
try, it would once again be
the world’s biggest producer
of illicit drugs,” Costa wrote.

The fact that poppy and
opium production is thriving
in areas where’the insurgency
is strongest shows the link
between drugs and conflict,
he said; contending that both
need to be dealt with at the
same time. The Taliban were
making up to $70 million a

year taxing poppy farmers,
and were collecting their
share of the estimated $3 bil-
lion made yearly by the drug -
traffickers i in Afghanistan, he
said.

Costa called on NATO, the
United States and the Afghan
military to destroy drug lab-
oratories, opium markets and
traffickers’ convoys, without
harming the livelihoods of
struggling farmers. Poor
Afghans risk severe hunger
this year after bad harvests
and price increases, he said,
and should be assisted before
they are tempted to return to
poppy cultivation.

Clooney, Pitt



arrive in

Venice for film festival

@ VENICE, Italy

GEORGE CLOONEY host-
ed a charity event Tuesday night
to raise money for victims in Dar-
fur.

Clooney, who’s in Venice for
the premiere Wednesday at the
Venice Film Festival of the Coen
brothers’ film “Burn After Read-
ing,” swept past reporters as he
arrived for the fundraiser for his
Not On Our Watch charity,
according to Associated Press.

The event was expected to
raise $2 million, said Manuele
Malenotti, the executive director
of the Italian clothing company
Belstaff, which sponsored the
event.

Not On Our Watch has raised
more than $7 million to help vic-
tims both of the humanitarian cri-
sis in the Darfur region of Sudan
and the cyclone in Myanmar,
according to executive director

\lex Wagner.
The charity, which was started
ist year by Clooney, Brad Pitt
and some of their “Ocean’s Thir-
teen” colleagues, uses their
celebrity appeal to bring atten-
tion to human rights abuses, but it
isn’t so easy to get even two of
the founders together because of
filming and family demands,
Wagner conceded.

Pitt, who arrived in Venice ear-
lier with sons Maddox and Pax,
was expected at the event, but
hadn’t arrived by the time cock-
tail hour was over.

He also appear in the Coen
brothers’ film.

“Scheduling is very difficult.
Two of them happened to be in
Venice at the same time because
of the "Burn After Reading’ pre-
miere ... so there was a brain-
storming session,” Wagner said
of the planned joint appearance.

‘ Inside, Clooney was discussing
the issues and where the charity
puts its money at the fundraising
dinner on Venice’s Giudecca
island, where 200 industry insiders

and Italian VIPs were slated to*

attend; Wagner said.
One recent grant by the group

~ was $500,000 in March to keep

helicopters and airplanes flying
aid into Darfur region of Sudan
— topping off a $1 million dona-
tion a year earlier for the same
program.

“We sent out a press. release
one day saying we were on the
verge of closing it down and the
next day we had $500,000,” said
Bettina Luescher, a spokes-
woman for the World Food Pro-
gram at U.N. headquarters in
New York. “They shine the light
on the real emergencies and step
up where we really need help.”

Without that money, Luescher
said, the World Food Program
had been on the verge of shut-
ting down the air service to Dar-

fur, which brings 3,000 aid work- ,

ers a month to the stricken region.
The U.N. food charity fed 3.3 mil-
lion people there last month.

The air service is critical given
deteriorating security, which
makes road convoys vulnerable.
Nearly 100 World Food Program
food trucks have been hijacked
this year.

Clooney has spoken for sever-
al years about the crisis in Darfur,
where more than 200,000 people
have been killed and about -2.5
million people displaced in three
years of fighting between African
rebels and government troops
allied with Arab militia known as
the janjaweed.

He went on a U.N. technical
mission including Darfur and
neighboring Chad in January,
sharing his impressions with
reporters upon his return to draw
attention to the crisis.

Egypt septuplets stir
debate on fertility drugs

â„¢ ALEXANDRIA, Egypt

THE 27-YEAR-OLD woman and her
husband already had three children —
all girls. They badly wanted a boy, and
she had not conceived in five years, so
doctors gave her hormones, according to
the Associated Press. -

The startling result was healthy sep-
tuplets — four boys and three girls —
heralded by Egyptian doctors as a mir-
acle. But debate persists about the ethics
of fertility treatment in a nation where
medical oversight is lax, incubators and
neonatal respirators are rare, and many
families face pressure to have a son.

In addition, Egypt faces concerns
about overpopulation and cheap fertil-

"ity drugs could lead to a wave of multi-

ple births. President Hosni Mubarak
warned in June that growth is hindering
Egypt’s economy, saying Egypt’s popu-
lation of 79 million — mostly crammed
into the’3 percent of the country’s area
around the Nile River — will double by
2050.

For the mother, Ghazala Khamis, the
most pressing question now is how her
impoverished family is going to get by.

“T’m really scared,” she said, lying in
her hospital bed in this Mediterranean
coastal city. “We live in a mud hut with
only two rooms. I don’t know how we’re
going to afford 10 children now.”

Khamis’ husband Farag Mohammed
Ali, a 31-year-old farm laborer, can find
work only a few days a week, she said.
“T’m really worried about what the
future looks like.”

Much about the Aug. 16 birth, by
Caesarean section, was stunning. The
babies are large for a multiple birth,
weighing between 3 pounds 3 ounces
and 4 pounds 10 ounces each. The dura-
tion of.the pregnancy was also the

longest ever for septuplets — 34 weeks. ©

By contrast, the world’s first surviving
septuplets, born to the McCaughey fam-
ily in Iowa in 1997, came at 31 weeks
and the biggest baby weighed about the
same as Khamis’ smallest. There are
two other sets of surviving septuplets,
both born to Saudi women.

‘ Khamis’ doctors waited so long to

deliver the babies because Egypt has .

only a fewrrespifators for newborns, and
none were available. So for weeks, doc-
tors kept Khamis in Alexandria’s Shat-

by Maternity University Hospital, let-
ting the fetuses develop enough that
their lungs could function on their own
after birth. But the wait also increased
the risk to the mother.

“We were simply blessed by God that
no complication happened ... If there
had been a complication, Ghazala would
have died,” Dr. Mahmoud Meleis, who
performed the Caesarean section, told,
The Associated Press.

After their birth, images on television
showed the boys — Mohammad,
Kareem, Bilal and Yassin — and girls —
Israa, Habiba and Do’a — lying side-
by-side in two makeshift incubators, oxy-
gen hoods covering their heads. Four
were then whisked by ambulance to two

- other hospitals because there were not

enough incubators at Shatby.

Except for the television images,
Khamis has not yet seen all her babies;
she has been able to hold and breast-
feed only the three at Shatby. Though
she was ready to leave days after the
birth, she remains hospitalized because
she has nowhere to stay in Alexandria, a
four-hour drive from her farming vil-
lage of Ezbat Emara.

Last week, baby girl Habiba and boys
Yassin and Mohammed were resting in
incubators at Shatby, tiny caps on their
heads — red for the boys and lime green

. for the girl. All were breathing on their

own, though Habiba and Yassin wore
protective eye patches.

Some Western medical ethicists have
questioned the use of fertility drugs by a
young woman who already has three
children, considering the risk of multiple
births. -

“This is a medical failure,” said Guido
Pennings, a professor of- fertility ethics at
the University of Ghent in Belgium.
“You cannot take this risk because of
the complications to the mother and the
babies.”

Pennings, who was not involved in the
case, said Khamis’ doctors should have
been more careful in prescribing fertili-
ty drugs to a woman who.had already
demonstrated she was capable of con-
ceiving.

“Twenty-seven with three children:
That woman is fertile,” he said. “Even if
she had a period of infertility, that’s an
indication that you should be careful
when you stimulate” ovulation.

OBSTACLE |

Hurricane recovery
confronts low literacy rate

m NEW ORLEANS

Marsha Williams had always
hesitated when mail arrived
from the government. After
Hurricane Katrina, she began

to fear the letters, according to

the Associated Press.

One warned that her apart-

ment building could be shut
down because of unrepaired
storm damage. There were legal
notices and forms. What did
they all mean? At age 51,
Williams was embarrassed she
could not read much more than
her own name and address.

Three years after Katrina,
residents of New Orleans are
still buried in a blizzard of gov-
ernment paperwork. But for
thousands of storm victims
seeking federal aid, the chal-
lenge is made more difficult by
a little-known obstacle: More
than 40 percent of the city’s
adults lack the literacy skills to
comprehend basic government
forms. And recovery programs
have done little to ease the bur-
den.

“I didn’t get a lot of school
when I was a child. I guess they
didn’t have enough to go
around,” said Williams, who is
-learning to read ina YMCA
adult-education course.

Rachel B. Nicolosi, program
director for the Literacy
Alliance of Greater New
Orleans, estimates that as many
as 100,000 people from New
Orleans may have had assis-
tance delayed, or they never
applied for help at all, because
they could not read the docu-
ments.

“It’s a paramount issue. -The
rules are almost indecipherable
for everyone,” said Davida Fin-
ger, a staff attorney for Loyola
University’s New Orleans Col-
lege of Law, which has helped
1,000 people seek rebuilding
aid, nearly all of whom had
trouble understanding the

HENRY LEE BURTON
talks with a reporter
while sitting in his
truck before going to
work in New Orleans,
Friday, Aug. 22, 2008.
Burton often brings his
adult literacy course
work to his job. Over-
shadowed by bureau-
cratic failures and.
slow-moving rebuild- .
ing programs, there is
a backstory to New
Orleans’ Katrina recov-
ery rooted in a broken
school system and the
legacy of segregation:
as many as 70 percent
of adults read below a
ninth-grade level and
over 40 percent cannot
comprehend basic
government forms.

forms.
Katrina destroyed 27 adult
literacy programs when it came

ashore in 2005. Only 13 pro-

grams survived, so Nicolosi and
others have asked for govern-

/ment rebuilding agencies to

write aid forms in a “plain lan-
guage” format that is already
used for some federal health
and safety documents.

But some government offi-
cials say too much plain lan-
guage can leave out vital infor-
mation.

“I concede the point that
those who are functionally illit-
erate, they would have chal-
lenges with any form,” said Bri-
an Sullivan, a spokesman for
the Department of Housing and
Urban Development. He said
the agency has trained all of its
37 staff members in New

Orleans to help “those with lit-

eracy disabilities.”

The National Adult Literacy
Survey indicates that 25 percent
of U.S. adults read at the lowest
functional level, medning, for
example, that they can locate
an expiration date on a driver’s
license but cannot fill out most
motor-vehicle forms.

In New Orleans, that figure is
44 percent, according to the sur-
vey, which is performed every
decade and was last conducted
in 2003.

The cornerstone of neigh-
borhood rebuilding efforts is
the $10.3 billion Road Home
program, which asks partici-
pants to review dozens of doc-
uments and sign 18 final legal
papers before aid is approved.

One paragraph reads:
“Homeowner(s) agree(s) to the
filing of certain covenants to
run with the land on the prop-
erty for which this Grant is
awarded requiring generally as
follows: flood insurance to be

maintained if located in Special.

Adirondack museum looks at legacy of opera soprano

@ BOLTON LANDING, N.Y.

SHE HAD the voice of an
angel and used it to negotiate
fast notes with the skill of a
trained gymnast.

After retiring officially from
the opera world, legendary
soprano Marcella Sembrich
taught music lessons on her
lakefront property tucked away
among towering white pines in
the foothills of New York’s
Adirondack Mountains.

Students came to her from
the Curtis Institute in Philadel-
phia and The Juilliard School.

Her teaching studio, a small
pink stucco house with huge
windows: overlooking ‘Lake
George, is now home to a
museum established by her
daughter-in-law, Juliette de
Coppet Stengel, two io after
she died in 1935.

It is one of only a handful of
museums in the U.S. dedicat-
ed to opera and doubles as a

venue for intimate music per-

formances, This year, which
marks Sembrich’s 150th birth-
day and the 100th anniversary
of her farewell performance at
the New York Metropolitan
Opera, the Marcella Sembrich
Memorial Association will host
concerts, lectures and film
showings in her honor.
Recordings of Sembrich’s
voice waft through the rooms of
the 1,400-square-foot teaching
cottage. Photographs and opera
programs combine to create a
sort of time capsule for visitors.

On display is the costume from

when she played Mimi in “La
Boheme,” along with letters
between Sembrich and such
luminaries as Mark Twain,
Thomas Edison and Teddy
Roosevelt. ’

“It’s a picture of the golden
age of song,” said Richard War-
go, the museum’s artistic direc-
tor and composer-in-residence.

‘Sembrich was born Prakse-
da Marcelina Kochanska in a
small Polish village in 1858. As

a child, she began studying
voice, piano and violin. She
took lessons with William Sten-

* gel — whom she ended up mar-

rying.

At 19, using a modified ver-

sion of her mother’s maiden
name as her stage name, she
made her debut in Italian
opera in Athens, Greece,
singing “I Puritani.”

Although she was an accom-
plished pianist and violinist,
she was renowned for her
voice.

When Sembrich performed
for Franz Liszt, singing and
playing the violin and piano,
the composer is said to have
told her, “Sing, sing for the
world. You have the voice of
an angel.”

The museum sits on 4.5
acres of winding trails, offer-
ing scenic views of the Adiron-
dacks from its yearly opening
in June to its closingin Sep-

tember. As a performance

venne, it provides a small

chamber setting that seats
between 50 and 70 people.
Guest musicians perform on
Sembrich’s original 1905 Stein-
way piano.

Sembrich came to the
upstate New York village after
the start of World War I pre-
vented her from.returning to
her summer home in the Swiss
Alps. She first bought a home

Israel to display dead sea

scrolls on the internet

lm By ETHAN BRONNER
JERUSALEM

In a crowded laboratory
painted in gray and cooled like

-a cave, half a dozen specialists

embarked this week on a his-
toric undertaking: digitally pho-
tographing every one of the
thousands of fragments of the

“Dead Sea Scrolls with the aim



among the most sought-after
and examined documents on
Earth — available to all on the
Internet, reports the New York
Times News Service.

Equipped with high-powered
cameras with resolution and
clarity many times greater than
those of conventional models,
and with lights that emit nei-
ther heat nor. ultraviolet rays,
the scientists and technicians
are uncovering previously illeg-
ible sections and letters of the
scrolls, discoveries that could
have significant scholarly
impact.

The 2,000-year-old scrolls,
found in the late 1940s in caves

near the Dead Sea east of |

Jerusalem, contain the earliest
known copies of every book of
the Hebrew Bible (missing only
the Book of Esther), as well as
apocryphal texts and descrip-

- tions of rituals of a Jewish sect

at the time of Jesus. The texts,
most of them on parchment but
some on papyrus, date from the
third century B.C. to the first
century A.D.

Only a handful of the scrolls
exist in large pieces, with sever-

ie

conservation necessity. We wanted

scrolls and realized we needed to -

take precise photographs to watch



al on permanent exhibit at the
Israel Museum here in its dimly
lighted Shrine of the Book.
Most of what was found is sep-
arated into 15,000 fragments
that make up about 900 docu-
ments, fueling a longstanding
debate on how to order the

fragments as well as the origin:

and meaning of what is written
on them.

The scrolls’ contemporary
shistory has been something of a
tortured one because they are
among the most important
sources of information on Jew-
ish and early Christian life.
After their initial discovery they
were tightly held by.a small cir-
cle of scholars. In the last 20
years, access has improved sig-
nificantly, and in 2001 they were
published in their entirety. But
debate over them seems only
to grow. :

Scholars continually ask the
Israel Antiquities Authority, the
custodian of the scrolls, for
access to them, and museums

around the world seek to dis-
play them. Next month,the Jew-
ish Museum of New York will
scrolls.

The keepers of the scrolls,
people like Pnina Shor, head of
the conservation department of
the antiquities authority, are
delighted by the intense interest
but.say that each time a scroll is
exposed to light, humidity and
heat, it deteriorates. She says
even without such exposure
there is deterioration because
of the ink used on some of the
scrolls as well as the residue
from the Scotch tape used by
the 1950s scholars in piecing
together fragments.

The entire collection was
photographed only once before
— in the 1950s using infrared
— and those photographs are
stored in a climate-controlled
room because they show things
already lost from some of the
scrolls. The old infrared pictures
will also be scanned in the new
digital effort.

“The project began as a con-
servation necessity,” Shor
explained.

“We wanted to monitor the
deterioration of the scrolls and
realized we needed to take pre-
cise photographs to watch the
process.

“That’s when we decided to
do a comprehensive set of pho-
tos, both in color and infrared,
to monitor selectively what is
happening. We realized then
that we could make the entire
set of pictures available online
to everyone, meaning that any-
one will be able to see the
scrolls in the kind of detail that
no one has until now.”

The process will probably
take one to two years — more
before it is available online —
and is being led by Greg Bear-
man, who retired from the Jet
Propulsion Laboratory. Data
collection is directed by Simon
Tanner of Kings College Lon-
don.

Jonathan Ben-Dov, a profes-
sor of biblical studies at the Uni-
versity of Haifa, is taking part in
the digitalization project.
Watching the technicians gin-
gerly move a fragment into
place for a photograph, he said
that it had long been very diffi-
cult for senior scholars to get
access.

Once this project is complet-
ed, he said with wonder, “every
undergraduate will be able to
have a detailed look at them
from numerous angles.”

| Lifting the veil on AIDS

in a Mexican prison

â„¢ By MARC LACEY
MEXICO CITY

Officially, there is no sex
among the male inmates at the
overcrowded Oriente prison on
the outskirts of the Mexican
capital, according to the New
York Times News Service. The
only sexual relations in the male
portion of the facility, adminis-
trators say, occur in the special
rooms set aside for male-female
conjugal visits.

But talk to the prisoners, a
group of 11,300 convicted rob-
bers, murderers and others who
have run afoul of the law, and
another reality emerges.

“We are a population of men,
and it’s normal for men to have
sex with whoever is around,”
said Guillermo, 32, a prisoner
and peer educator who has
HIV, the virus that causes
AIDS. “There are some who
don’t want to see it.”

Even though scientific sur-
veys of AIDS rates in Mexican
prisons do not exist, the myths
associated with the epidemic
are pronounced among prison-
ers, and the sex that takes place
is frequently unsafe, advocates
say. The risk is significant
enough that an American orga-
nization, Population Services

International, has set up an

AIDS awareness program
inside this and four other Mex-
ican lockups. Facts about the
disease are so scarce, said Ricar-
do Roman Vergara, who helps
run the training sessions, that
some inmates think HIV is
spread by mosquitoes, kisses or
shared toothbrushes.

Just getting access to the pris-
ons was no easy feat, since
prison authorities are hesitant
to acknowledge a problem.
Official figures put the number
of HIV-positive inmates in the
capital’s prisons at 62, six of
them women and the rest men.
But no widespread testing of
the tens of thousands of inmates
takes place, so the figure is con-
sidered by experts to substan-
tially understate the danger.

‘In the case of the Reclusorio
Preventivo Oriente, a rough
place that is one of the largest



“We area
population of
men, and it’s
normal for men
to have sex with
whoever is
around.”

Guillermo

prisons in Latin America, the
warden, Ruben Fernandez
Lima, allowed the awareness
sessions here despite playing
down the extent of infections.
“T don’t know the level of
HIV in this prison,” he said dur-
ing a tour that coincided with
the 17th International AIDS
Conference, which was held in
Mexico City in early August. “I
think it’s minimal. It’s almost
nothing.” —.
But the chances of acquiring
the virus inside prison walls are
many, aS a group of prisoners,
all dressed in khaki, learned this

. month during an education ses-

sion in a community room here.
There are the syringes used
to inject drugs, another activity
that prison authorities play
down. There are the needles
that prison tattoo artists employ
to mark up the inmates or
pierce their bodies. Then there
is sex that occurs in and out of
the designated “visita intima”
areas, some of it with prosti-
tutes, both male and female,
who ply their trade within the
prison walls. ’
Indeed, all sorts of supposed-
ly banned activities take place in
Mexico’s prisons, much of it,
experts say, the result of bribes
being slipped to underpaid
guards. During the tour, a pris-
oner was observed talking on a
cell phone, which is banned in
penitentiaries nationwide
because of a history of crime
bosses continuing their illegal
activities while in detention.
Oriente frequently finds itself
on the front pages of Mexico’s
newspapers. It was where Jose
Luis Calva Zepeda, a presumed



serial killer who ate his victims
and then wrote poems about
them, was sent last year. The
so-called Cannibal Poet was lat-
er found hanged in his cell. The
suspicious circumstances of the
death prompted a shakeup in
the prison leadership.

Then in July, a notorious drug
trafficker managed to slip out
of the prison, spurring an inves-
tigation into whether prison
authorities, including the war-
den, might have given lim priv-
ileges that aided his escape.

The trafficker, Luis Gonzaga
Castro Flores, was apparently
allowed to have several women
pay him conjugal visits. He used
one such liaison to change

clothes in the visitors’ area and.

make his escape, authorities say.

The tightest ship appeared to
be run in a part of the prison
set aside for drug addicts. To
wean them off their addictions,
mostly to crack cocaine, prison
officials require the addicts to
engage in military-style march-
es and ban them from having
outside visitors, who are some-
times of the source of contra-
band. Visitors to the prison are
told not to wear khaki, so as not
to be mistaken for a prisoner.
Upon entering, visitors are giv-

en a quick body search, and a:

special ink is put on their hands
to differentiate them from
inmates.

Guillermo, a convicted rob-
ber who for his safety asked that
his last name not be published,
said most of those he counsels
in the prison are hesitant to dis-
cuss their sexual partners when
he first approaches them. But

because he is open about the -

fact that he is bisexual, he said
prisoners soon begin talking.
“In a place like this, the vul-
nerability of getting HIV is very
high,” he said. One of those
who praised the outreach effort
was Hector, 32, who was
halfway through a six-year sen-
tence for robbery. He has a wife
and children on the outside and
male. sexual partners on the
inside. “I don’t know if I have it
or not,” he said of the virus. “I
do it without condoms, but I’m
learning now that I shouldn’t.”

Unionist: ‘Let
chips fall where
they may’ over
illegal actions

@ By NEIL HARTNELL
Tribune Business
Editor "

A LEADING trade
unionist has urged that pub-
lic sector unions “be held to
the same standard” as their
private sector counterparts
when it came to illegal indus-

trial actions, adding: “Let the
chips fall where they may”.

Huedley Moss, the chief
negotiator/adviser to the
Bahamas Beverage and
Water Distributors Union,
told Tribune Business that
there appeared to be a dou-
ble standard in play when it
came to punishing union
members for engaging in ille-

gal industrial actions, with.

public sector unions seem-
ingly getting off ‘scot free’

‘unlike their private sector

counterparts.

Advocating that “there
must be consequences for
illegal industrial actions”, Mr
Moss argued that the
Bahamas did not need any
new laws to deal with such
- situations, but rather must
“enforce the laws that are
there”.

Acknowledging that in his
opinion the recent actions by
. the two Bahamas Telecom-
munications Company
(BTC) unions were an illegal
industrial strike, Mr Moss
said: “Successive govern-
ments seem impotent, to do
anything about public sector

unions not being held to the.

same high standards as pri-
vate. sector unions. ' ,

“The laws that we have on
the books in the Industrial
Relations Act, the laws con-
tained in the Employment
Act, aren’t just for one cate-
gory of workers. They are
for all workers in. both the
' public sector and the private
sector.”

_ Mr Moss added: “One of

the weaknesses we have in
the system in this country is

that over the years it seems © i.
i chain was “not completely out

to me that politicians were
reluctant to chastise unions
that engaged 1 in illegal indus-
trial actions.

“They have done that for |

selfish reasons, mainly that
they were looking out for
their own political careers.
They have a duty to be con-
cerned about the needs of all

Bahamians, not just one cat- }

egory of Bahamians.

“The same standards that
apply to private sector
unions must be applied to

BAHAMAS Supermarkets

chief executive yesterday said .

he was targeting 2010 as the

year in which the company -

would surpass previous annual
profit records of $7-$8 million,

‘with “failure not an option” in

efforts to get the 12-store

i. supermarket chain “back on

Stephen Boyle told Tribune
Business that the City Markets

problems that have plagued
the company over its past two
financial years, but it was now
focused on fiscal 2009 and
“working on delivery of a very
detailed business plan”.

He explained that while City.
Markets was generating posi-

tive cash flow from its opera-

tions, much of this. was being .

eaten up by costs associated
with completing the fiscal 2007
and 2008 audits, and rebuilding
the chain’s back office and

‘accounting systems.

“Are we completely out of
the woods [on cash flow]? No.
Are we generating cash flow
from operations? Yes,” Mr
Boyle told Tribune Business.

“Unfortunately, the remedi-
ation we had to undertake to
bring 2007 to a close and get
2008 up to date is expensive.

“The cash generated from
operations is being invested on
getting reporting back on track,

and getting the finance and . |

accountiny: departments back
on track. You can’t run a busi-
ness without numbers, which
is why it’s an investment, not
an expense. This is why it’s
consuming all our cash.”

Analysts and shareholders |

largely reacted with disap-
pointment to the publication
of Bahamas Supermarkets’
long-awaited 2007 financials,
which were reported by Tri-
bune Business yesterday.

THE attorney representing
former Pioneer Shipping
employees has applied to the
Supreme Court for permission
to file an action against the
company’s owners in the US,
after it allegedly dissolved and
liquidated its Bahamian assets.

Obie Ferguson, who repre-
sents the terminated employ-
ees, told Tribune Business he
had made an application for
leave to the Bahamian
Supreme Court so that that he

could file a writ of summons .

outside the jurisdiction - in this
case, in Florida.

This essentially means that
Mr Ferguson will be going
after the company’s US assets,
since all the Bahamian assets
have allegedly been taken out

-of the jurisdiction.

Mr Ferguson said in asking

age. ;
Mr Ferguson explained that
the Supreme Court applica-
tion process will take several
weeks. If it is successful, he
will then file the necessary
documents in Florida, and Pio-
neer executives could be
ordered to appear in Nassau
because the events complained
of occurred in this jurisdiction.

Pioneer Shipping’s business
was taken over by a partner-

- ship between Laser Interna-

tional Freight Transport and

the Nassau-based Mailboat —

Company earlier this summer.
The employees are upset at
the way their termination was
handled, given the fact that
they were not-given any sev-
erance packages and lost much

Susan Glinton, a buyer for Kelly’s Home Centre, said
sales were going very well with their back-to-school

items.

She said business appears comparable: to last year’s

back-to-school rush, although she added that she had not

seen all the figures as yet. Ms Glinton said sales were
likely to continue as the final week of summer comes to

an end.

“Our sales have been steady” she said.

Arnelle Cooper, the spokeswoman for Solomon’s

SuperCentre said: “ Sales have been going very well. We

are aware of what hasbeen going on in the economy, and
the fact that. a number of persons have lost their jobs and
are financially challenged. We have tried to accommo-
date them by securing items. at the best prices and quality
that are affordable.”

She said that while sales appear to be on track to match
last year, the determing factor will be this weekend, in

“This weekend will be probably be our biggest eek

Tribune Business Reporter

BAHAMIAN landscaping
companies are planning to organ-
ise themselves into a Bahamian
Landscape Association (BLA),

Tribune Business was told yes-

terday, in an effort to raise service
standards and increase career
opportunities. :

Landscaping companies and
professionals have been invited
to participate in an information
session on the benefits of estab-
lishing such an association on
September 4, at the Atlantis Con-
vention Centre.

The association organisers said
in a letter to industry profession-
als that they will be seeking to
align themselves with the Florida
Nursery, Growers & Landscape
Association (FNGLA), in what

Trading assistant —

will be an industry milestone.

_ “It was determined that the
FNGLA was more appropriate
for the BLA, because its respon-
sibility covers the Florida region,
which has many similarities with
the region of the Bahamas,” the
letter said.

“Understanding our quest to
raise the standard of professional
services in the Bahamas, the
FNGLA has fully supported and
ratified the BLA as an official
Allied Member, with future con-
siderations to upgrade its status as
a chapter. Thus all of the
resources that were once only
obtainable in Florida will be avail-
able here in the Bahamas to all
those who choose to become a
member of the BLA.”

The organisets further indicat-
ed that once the BLA is official-
ly established, with assistance
from the FNGLA and other

SHAVONNE
VIOUNTS, a trading
assistant at Gibraltar
Global Securities, has
passed the Series 7
exam in Fort Lauderdale
after studying with the
Nassau-based Securi-
ties Training Institute
(STI).

Michael Miller, STI’s
president, said: “ Our
investment training pro-
grames provide stu-
dents with the concep-
tual foundations and
practical skills neces-
sary to succeed in the
rapidly evolving fields
of securities and finan-
cial services.”

Ms Mounts is pic--
tured with Warren
Davis, managing direc- .
tor of Gibraltar Global
Securities. aS
































FNGLA-approved industry part-
ners, certification courses will be
offered to all interested parties.

“All certification courses
offered by the BLA will continu-
ally be available here in the
Bahamas. The establishment of
the BLA with internationally
recognised certification will be a
mile stone in our industry,” the
letter said.

It further maintained that cer-
tification and continued educa-
tional units (CEU) will strength-
en the ongoing dedication the
BLA membership had in contin-
ued education, and stand as a tes-
tament to the individuals and
businesses that attain certifica-
tion.

“Individuals and businesses
alike may boast and advertise
these accomplishments across the
Bahamas, Caribbean and the
USA,” the letter added.

Over the years, the letter said
the industry had exploded, with
new landscape companies offer-
ing a variely of services to cus-
tomers.- ranging from landscape
installation, maintenance, pest

management, irrigation services,

arboriculture and nurseries.
“For many years we have all

at some point endeavored to

improve our business and profes-
siorial status. Many of us have
explored and pursued avenues to
achieve this by way of attending
seminars, short courses in our
individual fields and trying to
align ourselves with organisations
or associations that have the
resources to help us achieve our
goals,” the letter said.
~ “As professionals in the indus-
try, we will all be a part of this
historic international project that
will afford us the ability to raise
the standards of the industry, and
cause our. customers to develop a
greater sense of trust in our abil-
ity to offer professional and qual-
ity services.”
The letter added that the asso-
ciation can begin to strengthen

the integrity of the industry and .

create a means to attract well-
educated high school graduates,
secondary school graduates and

the growth of the industry.

“This will also provide alterna-
tive career options and will create
a pool of talent for businesses to
choose from,” it said.

The letter also explained that

‘the Bahamas Technical and
Vocational Institute (BT VI) and

the Daytona Beach Community
College have agreed to support
the move, facilitating the train-
ing of existing professionals and
all new interested parties by way
of the BTVI training facility, long-
term instructors and marketing.

The BTVI & Ministry of Edu-
cation have agreed to support the
BLA, and are exploring ways to
provide continued education to
students who may wish to go on
to COB or other colleges to pur-
sue higher levels of education in
the green industry, like a BA in
Landscape Design or a Masters in
Horticulture. ;

Initial training for certifications
will be done in conjunction with
FNGLA -ertified instructors and
professionals from the Bahamas,
who will also become certified
instructors. :

Mrs Thompson pointed to
the fact that electricity in the
Bahamas now cost around
$0.45 per kilowatt hour, a cost
that had gone into orbit com-
pared to other major Western
Hemisphere cities such as
Vancouver, where energy cost
$0.0655 per kilowatt hour.

The 2008-2009 Budget tax
increases could not have come
at a worse time for many lux-
ury goods and other retailers.
Apart from the increased
operating costs, they are also
having to grapple with a
reduction in tourist numbers
and per capita spending, which
has negatively impacted rev-
enue, and a rise in costs asso-
ciated with purchasing Euro-
pean brands.

The latter phenomenon has
occurred because of the euro’s
relative strength against the
US dollar, as Bahamian retail-
ers have to pay for European-
made brands with euros. The
appreciating euro means these
prices have increased.

Mrs Thompson said: “We’re

trying to adjust our operations,
and are taking all the steps we
can. Our margins are down
below what is likely to make a
profit. ;

“We have to cut overheads

to a minimum and operate in a
very conservative way, giving
good value for money. If your
sales and prices don’t give you
the margins you need, you'll
go out of business. When sales
drop, so do margins.”

Mrs Thompson said the 5

"per cent duty increase on all

leather goods imported into

the Bahamas was not levied -°

just on the price of the prod-
uct, but also on the freight
costs - adding to the ‘already
high cost of shipping.

Many Bay Street retailers
are worried that the Budget
tax increases, a portion of
which they are likely to pass
on to consumers, will make
them even more uncompeti-
tive when compared to rival
retailers in Florida, the
Caribbean and on the cruise
ships. Many rely on the tourist
trade for 80 per cent and
upwards of their sales.

that while the Bahamian taxa-

for many years, it was
“unique” in basing its tariff
rates on the CIF bill, rather
than just the product price.

“Every retailer right now on

Thompson told Tribune Busi-

Unionist: ‘Let chips
fall where they may’
over illegal actions

FROM page one

public sector unions, and the powers that be need to step turning i
a deaf ear and stop pandering to union leaders.” i
BTC union leaders have defended their actions, and those of :
their members, and said they were not participating in an illegal :
industrial action. i
Yet Mr Moss said of the BTC strike’s impact: “I think it is :
awful, it is hurting the country and let the chips fall where they ;
ma i
There must be consequences for illegal industrial actions. :
They walk off the job, shut things down and there are no conse- ;
quences. The powers that be don’t have the wherewithal to take
action. . ;
“The private sector union leaders know thete are consequences :
for these types of things. It is hurting the country, sending the ;
wrong example to kids and sending the wrong message to current ;
and future investors.” i
Mr Moss said that under existing Bahamian law, ifa :
union engaged in illegal industrial action, an employer was
free to treat all union members that participated “as they see
fit”. i
For example, under the Employment Act’s provisions, an
employer could summarily dismiss workers for taking part in }
an illegal industrial action. If they were summarily dismissed, the
workers would not be entitled to receive severance pay. :
Such laws, Mr Moss suggested, could be used to “send a good:
message” that, if transmitted often enough, would deter workers a
from engaging in illegal industrial actions. i
“We don’t need any: new laws,” he told Tribune Business, dis- :
agreeing with the Bahamas Employers Confederation’s (BECon) :
_president, Brian Nutt, on that issue. i
“We have laws on:the books, and all we have to dois enforce }
the laws that are there. If all unions are not held to the same stan-_ :
dard, the Bahamas can expect many more illegal industrial :
actions.” i
Mr Moss also disagreed with Mr Nutt over the recent uludical :
action taken by members of the Bahamas Manufacturing and :
Allied Workers Union (BIMAWU), arguing that it was legalas :
defined by Chapter 321 of the Industrial Relations Act. i
He added that this was because the union had filed its dispute:
with the Department of Labour, and the minister responsible had:
supervised a strike vote by the union’s members. . i

proposals from established
renewable energy providers in
four key fields - solar, wind,
hydrokinetic (wave and ‘ocean)
and biomass.

“The RFP document says

we’re going to look at a maxi-”

mum of 10 per cent of genera-
tion capacity on any island”
coming from renewable ener-
gy sources, Mr Elliott told Tri-
bune Business.

“We've got a whole lot of
interest, both locally and inter-
nationally. We think we’re
going to get a lot of responses
in that regard. We look forward
to receiving the responses by
September 12 and evaluating
them.”

Mr Elliott said the Bahamas
could not afford to get left
behind as the world moved
towards renewable energy and
away from more traditional
forms of electricity generation,
such as coal, oil and nuclear.

’ “As far as the Bahamas is
concerned, the world is mov-
ing on towards renewable ener-
gy,” Mr Elliott said. “We have
to be a player, no matter how
minimal it is.

“Tf there is a shift away from
traditional forms of generation,
we can’t be the last person in
line. We have to be a player in
that regard.”

He added that it was “very

important” that the Bahamas:

embrace the’shift towards
renewable energy, especially

given the impact soaring oil '
-prices were having on BEC’s

fuel costs and financial position
and, in turn, the fuel surcharge
and electricity bills faced by
business and. residential con-
sumers.

Both BEC’s chairman, Fred
Gottlieb, and general manag-
er, Kevin Basden, were fully
behind the shift towards sus-

tainable power generation, Mr

Elliott said.

“Our chairman and general
manager are extremely com-
mitted to the process. They are
both very interested in seeing it
go, and expect within the next
year to see some real move-
ment on it,” Mr Elliott said.

renewable power
generation goals

proposals, involving the gener-
ation of energy from waste, are
likely to be submitted in
response to the BEC RFP,
along. with submissions on solar,
wind and hydrokinetic genera-
tion.

Meanwhile, the Bahamas
Hotel Association (BHA) has
thrown its backing behind the

AES Corporation proposal to.

supply BEC with liquefied nat-
ural gas (LNG) from its Ocean
Cay terminal, believing this
could result in a 15-30 per cent
reduction in fuel surcharge

_ costs for business and residen-

tial customers.

In an August 1, 2008, letter to
Prime Minister Hubert Ingra-
ham, the BHA president, Rus-
sell Miller, said that based upon
the presentation given by AES,
“we understand that this
arrangement could result in the
range of a 15 per cent to 30 per
cent reduction in fuel surcharge
costs to BEC customers on
New Providence, based upon
current market conditions. ‘The
savings would be considerable”.

Given that “the escalation of
energy costs has created
tremendous economic pres-
sures on businesses and resi-
dents”, Mr Miller said the BHA
endorsed the AES project “in
principle”.- ~

While the BHA was unable

to determine the environmental ,
impact of the proposed AES

project, Mr Miller pointed out
that responsibility in this area
lay with the Government and
developer..

“However, it is clear that the
conversion to natural gas by
BEC will significantly reduce
our present level of carbon
emissions,” Mr Miller said.

“We are confident that any
environmental concerns with
this proposal can be adequate-
ly addressed, and that the ben-
efits to businesses and residents
far outweigh any potential lim-












Overall Responsibilities

ited impact,

“Prime Minister, we should
note that outside of payroll
costs, energy costs are the
largest expense to hotel opera-
tors.”

Mr Miller added: “The AES

LNG project must be viewed
as part of a broader strategy by
the Bahamas aimed at making -
us more energy efficient, chang-
ing our consumption habits and
aggressively pursuing alterna-
tive renewable energy sources.
Only then will we realise sig-
nificant savings.”

AES previously told Tribune
Business that BEC could save

* between $1.4 billion to $4 bil-+

lion in fuel costs, or between
$80 million-$210 million per
annum, depending on future oil
prices.

THE TRIBUNE

City Markets chief targets

FROM page one

far from smooth, with City

Markets suffering an $8 mil-
lion-plus swing into the red and
a $189,130 loss. There was zero
cash on the company’s balance
sheet at 2007 year-end.

The 2006 year-end had seen
$9.234 million left in cash on
the balance sheet, but Mr
Boyle‘said the last two finan-
cial years had seen some $18
million in cash flow out of
Bahamas Supermarkets.

That figure included some
$5.8 million in dividends until
those payments were suspend-
ed by the Bahamas Supermar-
kets Board.

“The total across the two
years of cash going out of the
business is $18 million,” Mr
Boyle said. “There was an
awful lot spend on capital
expenditure, leasehold
improvements, dividends and
the Cable Beach store. There
was an awful. lot of outflow.”

Looking to put the past
behind City Markets and focus
on the future, Mr Boyle said:
“What I have agreed as chief
executive is to complete the
first quarter [2009], and based
on the first quarter results,
reforecast for the year. That’s
what I’ll be held accountable
for. !

“T’m positive the work done

in the last part of 2008 and cur-

rently will be very good for the
future. I’m certainly looking
during my tenure to pass pre-
vious levels of profitability.
“My initial tenure is for two
years, so that tells you by 2010

we'll hopefully have passed the

-levels achieved in the past.”

Several analysts and capital
markets sources yesterday
questioned the sale and lease-
back agreement, involving $3
million worth of store improve-
ments and equipment, that
Bahamas Supermarkets had
signed with its employees’ pen-
sion plan.

A number questioned
whether this was effectively
using employee pension assets
to provide the supermarket

-chain with working capital,

something several said was not
done in countries with effec-
tive pension legislation - unlike
the Bahamas.
However, Mr Boyle said:
“The bottom line is this. The
pension fund was earning 3 per
cent on those funds. It’s now

earning 9 per cent. We’ve
tripled the rate of return for |

the pension fund.
“While there may be some
individuals who are concerned,
there is nothing to be con-
cerned about. We are going to
generate additional funds for
the pension fund, and as the
stakeholders are all our

‘employees, they will benefit,

too./ .

“The [pension fund’s] cash

has not been utilised properly
in the past. We believe we have
done a good thing, and the
right thing, for the employees
and their future.

“Our head office is owned
by the plan. It isn’t uncommon,
its is custom and practice, for

‘the company to lease assets

from it.”

At year-end 2007, Bahamas
Supermarkets saw a more than
doubling in accounts payables
to $13.654 million - a 133.7 per
cent increase - compared to
$5.841 million at the previous

_ year end. Inventories, too, had

risen to $14.256 million com-
pared to $12.927 million the
year before.

- Mr Boyle said City Markets
was focused on better manag-

ing its inventory, using prac-.

tices such as shipping from the
US crates containing six weeks’
worth of product for two items,
rather than one crate contain-
ing 12 weeks’ worth of one
product. eh
“Our inventory turns at
year-end 2008 were as good as,
or better, than international
standards,” Mr Boyle said.

“One of the first exercises I
_ did after becoming chief exec-

utive in May 2008 was to actu-
ally look at our inventory lev-
els, put some international
benchmarks against them and
work to reduce the level we
have. Our accounts payable is
back to where it should be.”

Mr Boyle said the fiscal 2008 .

audit of Bahamas Supermar-
kets was currently underway,

-and the company intended to

meet the statutory reporting
deadline of October 23.
_ “While there has to be learn-

ing from the past, my job is to”

focus on the future and ensure
fiscal 2009 is where it needs to
be,” Mr Boyle said. “All of my
planning has been for 2009.
“The 2008 audit is underway.
It’s been all-consiming. If you
can imagine the amount of

- 2010 for record profits |

effort from May, when I took
over, to close 2007 and get
2008 to the point where it can
be audited, the effort has been
all-consuming.

“We've very focused on clos-
ing 2008, how it is, what the
results are and getting the com-
pany back to where it needs to
be.

“Failure is not an option, and
we are proceeding against a
very detailed business plan that
we have put in place. We are
working on delivery.”

As revealed previously by
Tribune Business, the main
factor behind the 2007 audit
delay was that KPMG was.
forced to.manually verify hun-
dreds of point-of-sale transac- .

. tions after no replacement

accounting systems were
installed to replace those pro-
vided by Winn-Dixie, whose
Transition Services Agreement
was ended early.

The problems at Bahamas
Supermarkets led Royal Bank °
of Canada, which provided $24
million in debt financing to
finance BSL Holdings’ $54 mil-
lion purchase of a majority 78
per cent stake in the compa-
ny, to work more closely with
the borrower in sorting out the
company’s problems.

The delay in publishing
Bahamas Supermarkets’ annu-
al results put BSL Holdings in
breach of one: of its banking
covenants.

A trouble-shooting team of
accountants has since gone into
Bahamas Supermarkets to
work through the accounts
payable and inventory issues.

Tensions rising
between Port
chair and St
George estate

FROM page one

Port Group Ltd and the
GBPA are basing their case
on the grounds that Mr Smith
acted as their outside coun-
sel for 23 years, and there-
fore has an alleged “conflict
of interest”.

Both companies are seek-
ing an order that Mr Smith
or any Callender’s & Co
attorney be barred from act-
ing as the St George estate’s
attorney.

In response, attorneys for
Mr Smith and Callender’s &
Co have filed separate sum-
monses asking for the action
to be struck out, on the
grounds that it “discloses no
reasonable cause of action”,

“is scandalous, frivalous and :

vexatious”, and could inter-
fere with a fair trial.

Mr Smith is being repre-
sented by Bostwick & Bost-
wick, and Callender’s & Co

by Harry B Sands, Lobosky .

& Company.

Carey Leonard, the GBPA
and Port Group Ltd general
counsel, in an affidavit in sup-
port of the Port’s action,
alleged: “In the course of its
engagement [as GBPA and
Port Group Ltd], the defen-
dant would have been privy
to all sorts of general and
specific information in rela-
tion to the inner workings of
the plaintiffs and their deal-
ings with third parties, so as
to properly carry out its advi-
sory functions as well as its
participation in litigation on
the plaintiffs’ behalf.”

As a result, Mr Leonard
alleged that Mr Smith and
Callender’s & Co were likely
to have received information
“capable of being used to the

detriment” of the GBPA and -

Port Group Ltd in the own-
ership dispute, in which they
had been named as defen-
dants by the St George
estate.

Mr Leonard alleged that
the ownership litigation ini-
tiated by the St George estate
was filed two days after Mr
Smith and Callender’s & Co
resigned as outside counsel,
something he described as
creating a “conflict”.

\

The resumption of the
GBPA and Port Group Ltd’s
legal action to have Mr Smith
removed from the litigation
is understood to have further
exacerbated tensions between
the St George estate and Mr
Christiansen.

Sources close to the situa-
tion have told Tribune Busi-
ness that the St George estate
initially thought Mr Chris-
tiansen would safeguard their
interests, but since his
appointment they perceive
him as acting in the interests
of the-Hayward side and
Roddie Fleming.

The latter is attempting to
acquire the GBPA and Port
Group Ltd, and has an option
to acquire the Hayward fam-
ily trust’s interest in the two

companies for $100 million.
The St George estate, though,

is adamant that it will not sell .

to Fleming.

Among the issues that have
particularly vexed the St
George estate has been Mr
Christiansen’s decision to pay
between $23-$24 million to a
combination of the Freeport
Harbour Company and
Hutchison Whampoa, with
about $16 million of the pro-
ceeds being used to settle a
debt related to the Grand
Bahama Airport Company.

The St George estate
believes this may have
deprived ‘it of dividend
income, which is
sole source of funding it
depends on-to finance the lit-
igation.

Retirees worry on
financial futures

@ By DAVE CARPENTER
AP Business Writer

CHICAGO (AP) — Today’s
‘retirees live in what may be the
waning days of retirement’s
golden age, enjoying the full
benefits of Social Security and
company pensions in many cas-
s.

But their concerns are grow-
ing, and not just because of
advancing age. Living on a fixed

oO

income has gotten’ much

tougher in a turbulent econo-
my, health insurance premiums
are rising and the value of many
of their homes is falling.

Retired teacher Rosie Eng-
man, a delegate to the Democ-
ratic National Convention, is
addressing the challenges.in a
way that mirrors the strategy of
many Americans: Living more
frugally. She and her husband
Larry grow their own vegeta-
bles, combine errands to save
on gas and only eat dinners out
on special occasions.

“You have to budget careful-
ly,” said the 69-year-old resi-
dent of Silver Spring, Md.
“Prices are ridiculous.”

The Associated Press inter-
viewed a handful of retiree del-
egates to get some insight into
the economic issues that mat-
ter most to them. :

The past several. decades

“have been a good time to be

retired in America, historically
speaking. Medicare was intro-
duced in 1965, Social Security
was expanded in the 1970s to
provide ample retirement ben-
efits, and pension programs that
began proliferating after World
War II have provided reliably
for many.

Just over 9 percent of the 65-
and-over population was living

_ in poverty in 2006, according to

U.S. Census data — the lowest
in the more than four decades
of tabulating the category. By
contrast, the figure was between
20 percent and 30 percent in the
late 1960s and early °70s.
“Those 65 or older have long
been the-poor population, and
that really has changed for a
very short window — 30 or at

the most 40 years, ” said Steven .

Sass, research director at the
Center for Retirement
Research at Boston College.
“Now we're seeing a contrac-
tion of those income support
systems that supported the
elderly — namely Social Secu-
rity and worker pensions.”

Retirees in future years.may
be in for a rough ride if they
don’t adapt, he said.

Many current retirees, includ-
ing some chosen for the con-
vention, feel like they’re already
scrambling to live well on jimit-
ed resources.

Just as she has worried about
the war in Iraq and the envi-
ronment, Engman now frets
about the economy and its
impact on her family and others.

“I worry about the huge
national debt that will affect all
of us and the poor economic
outlook,” the Obama delegate
said. “I have five grandchildren
and I wonder, what kind of
world will their grandchildren

have?”
Skill

She and her husband are role
models for thrifty living — a
skill many retirees learn by
necessity to master. She hangs
out their clothes to dry, to save
money as well as be ecological-
ly conscious. Their two cars are
10 years old. They shop at a
farmer’s market every week.
And besides the tomatoes,
cucumbers. and peppers they
grow in their yard, they try to
buy only fruits and vegetables
that are in season and other
items that are on sale. *

Creating more. jobs for man-
ufacturing workers out of work
in their native Ohio and else-
where needs to be a priority,
she said. “We understand how
badly the people are hurting

there because we knew tons of ©
people who worked at those

factories.”

Times are similarly tight for -

Eileen Gallagher of Oceanside,
N.Y., who was elected a Barack
Obama delegate: She is focused
on the economy that has dealt
her a double blow this year.

» First she had to sell her home

of 33 years because of fast-rising
bills that last year included
$7,000 in real estate taxes and
$3,000 in oil bills. Then she had
to scrap her trip to the Democ-
ratic convention in Denver due
to the heavy out-of-pocket
costs, replaced by an alternate
delegate.

“With plane fare, hotel and
extra expenses jt -would have
been way over $1,000 and Pm
on a very fixed income,” ‘said
the 76-year-old retired librarian:

Gallagher says she’s strug-
gling some as she goes through
every penny of her $2,600 |
monthly income, which conies
from Social Security and her
and her late husband’s pensions.

Most goes for utilities, main-
tenance and real estate taxes on
the senior coop apartment she -
bought last year. The rest goes:
for food, gas, phone, ‘TV, com-
puter and credit card payments,
She also treats herself.to New
York theater outings, takes
classes in writing and acting and
travels occasionally to Balti-
more to see her son ue his
wile. oy!

She has some money ina
bank CD, so'the stock market’s «
gyrations haven't bothered her.

Gallagher worked for years
as a secretary before getting a
graduate degree in library sci-
ence at age 52, Now she now
wonders whether it’s possible
for hard-working laborers to be
able to buy a decent home, as
her Irish immigrant grandpar-
ents did.‘

“It’s too bad the days are
gone when hard-working immi-
grants could become part of the
middle class. “And my heatt
goes out to people trying to
keep or buy a house nowadays
since taxes, heating, and other
rising costs are making this less
possible.”

Sidelined from the conven-
tion by costs, she will still be
cheering him on from afar and
retaining her characteristic
feistiness on Democratic issues,

“This Republican trickte-
down idea -— it evaporates
before it gets down to anybody
else,” she scoffed. “Real
Democrats know that.”

Among the new converts
are two Republican sena-
tors facing tough re-elec-
tion bids this fall, under-
scoring the role high ener-

gy prices are playing on the .

campaign trail. By signing
on with the group, Sens.
Norm Coleman of Min-
nesota and John Sununu of
New Hampshire have bro-
ken with the majority of
their party, which like
President Bush, would like
to see the moratorium on

_ drilling lifted along the

entire Atlantic and Pacific
coasts. ie
Sununu said Tuesday
that while he favors lifting
the moratorium entirely,
the bipartisan bill opens up
new areas and has a chance
of being passed this year.
The . other senators

. rounding out the Gang of

16 on Tuesday were

Republican John Warner

of Virginia and Democrats
Tim Johnson of ‘South
Dakota, Tom Carper of
Delaware and Ken Salazar
of Colorado.

Leadership

The coalition, under the
leadership of Sens. Saxby
Chambliss, R-Ga., and
Kent Conrad, D-N.D.,

assembled in early August. -

The other four original
Republican members are
John Thune of South
Dakota, Lindsey Graham
of South Carolina, Johnny
Isakson of Georgia and
Bob Corker of Tennessee.
They were joined by
Democrats Blanche Lin-
coln and Mark Pryor of
Arkansas, Mary Landrieu
of Louisiana and Ben Nel-
son of Nebraska.

Congress broke for its
August recess without find-
ing agreement on how big a
role expanded domestic oil
and gas production
should have in a broader
energy bill. Lawmakers
return Sept. 8 for a
three-week session before
leaving again to campaign
for the November elec-
tions.

When Congress recon-
venes, Republican leaders
want an up-and-down vote
on a bill that would allow

- more extensive offshore

drilling. Senate Majority
Leader Harry Reid, D-

Nev., and House Speaker ©

Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif.,
have indicated in recent

weeks that any bill includ- —

ing drilling would be pack-
aged with other measures
opposed, by Republicans,
such as selling oil from
the country’s emergency
stockpile and raising roy-

-alties paid by oil compa-

nies.

i By JULIA MALONE
Cox News Service .

WASHINGTON -- Ina late-
summer U.S. Capitol where
even tourists were in short sup-
ply, a handful of Republican
House members were once
again at their protest posts
Tuesday.

As they have for 18 straight
weekdays now, the GOP law-

ber of the recessed House,
demanding that the Democrat-
ic majority return to allow an
up-or-down vote on an energy
bill that includes more drilling
for oil and gas, including
along the U.S. outer continental
shelf.

Rep. Tom Price of Roswell, a
Georgian who has played a
leading role in the congression-
al “speak-in,” was back in town
to chide the platform the
Democrats produced at their
presidential nominating con-
vention in Denver. Price said it

supply of gasoline,” which he
called “the number one issue of
the day.” '

_ Other Republicans expressed
concern that Democrats in Den-
ver might draw up a new energy
strategy that would go only part
way toward the GOP position.

Rep. Mac Thornberry of
Texas warned against a “cyni-
cal” political move coming “just

makers held forth in the cham- .

“did not mention increasing the |

because we’ve turned up the
heat.”

The Republicans are insist-
ing on a vote on a bill that pro-
vides for maximum production
of American fuels as well as
promoting new energy sources
and energy conservation. Amid
soaring gasoline prices, they
hold that a bipartisan majority
of House members would
agree.

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi,
D-Calif., has refused to allow a
vote on the Republican pro-
posal. She and many Democra-
tic leaders counter that drilling
for more oil would damage the
environment and provide little
price relief at the gas pumps,

. while prolonging dependence

on fossil fuels.

As part of the energy con-
frontation, the Republican law-
makers also seek an end to the
congressional ban on offshore
drilling. The ban is set to-expire
Sept. 30. The GOP pledged to
resist‘any extension, even if it is
inserted into annual spending
legislation needed to run the
federal government.

Asked if the Republicans
would try to shut down the gov-
ernment over the drilling issue,
Price held that “80 percent o!
the American people” favor the
Republican energy proposals
and added, “If push comes to
shove, that’s (the Democrats’)
decision to make.”

1. Win the jack of diamonds with
the king and draw the defenders’
trumps. Next cash the A-Q of dia-
monds, discarding a> club from
dummy. Then, to assure the contract,
you play the A-Q of clubs!

The defender who wins the queen
of cichs with the king must either
return @ spade — in which case you
lose ouily two spade tricks — or con-
cede a rulf-and-discard by returning
a diamond or a ciub.

The tempting club finesse: should

be deliberately avoided because, if it
fails, a club return might well result
in your losing three spade tricks and
the contract. There is no reason to
incur such a risk when you have a
sure thing by playing otherwise.

Of course, if you run into a 4-0
trump division (a 10 percent possi-
bility), your best chance would lie in
eventually attempting the club
finesse. But if the trumps are divided
2-2 or 3-1, the suggested line of play
is 100 percent certain to succeed.

2. Assuming North has heart
length, the only threat to the contract
is if North has five hearts headed by
the ace and South has the club queen.
In that case, you will go down if you
win the first heart and the club
finesse subsequently loses to South,
who then returns his remaining heart.

To keep this from happening, you
should refuse to win the first heart.
South can’t harm you by shifting to
another suit, so let’s assume he
returns a heart. North can win and
continue hearts, but now if the club
finesse loses, North cannot regain the
lead, so you are sure to finish with at
least nine tricks. ©

Note that if North started with only
four hearts, you can never lose more
than four tricks — three hearts and a
club — no matter how you or the
defenders proceed.

because more people were

“insurance.”

. global trends,

“The gains that occurred
last year were welcome,
but unfortunately, they are
too little, too late,” said
Jared Bernstein, a senior
economist with, the liberal
Economic Policy Institute
in Washington. “The medi-
an household is no better
off now than they were
back in 2000, despite their
deep contribution to the

nation’s economic growth.

during this period.”

- For example, after
adjusting for inflation, last
year’s median ‘household
income of $50,233 was-not
significantly different from

the figure for 2000, which.

was $50,557. “The Ameri-
can work force is baking a
bigger economic pie, but
the slices haven’t grown at
all,” Bernstein said.

But White House
spokesman Tony. Fratto
said the household income
and health insurance num-

' bers are definitely good

news. °
“It’s clear that the long
period of strong economic

growth we Were in had a

positive impact for most
Americans,” Fratto said.
“Obviously today we’re
dealing with higher energy
prices and the downturn in
housing, but the economy
is showing enough
resilience to keep growing
in spite of those chal-
lenges.”

Republican candidate

John McCain distanced

himself from the White
House response, saying in a
statement, “Too many of
our neighbors are living in
poverty, too many can’t
find a job, and too many
are living without health
The Arizona
senator pledged tax cuts
and policy changes to make
health care more afford-
able.

Some analysts said that
not just
administration policies, are
shaping the economic for-

tunes of individual Ameri-
cans.
“Presidents like to take
credit when things go well,
and therefore they should
get the blame when things
don’t go well, but there are

-lots of things driving this,

not all of which are home
grown,” said Douglas
Besharov, an expert on
poverty:-at the business-ori-
ented American Enterprise
Institute. “The oil shocks
are not. And globalization,
which on balance is good
for the country, leaves win-
ners and losers.”
The Census report was
immediately swept up into
presidential politics.
Democratic presidential
candidate Barack Obama’s
campaign fired off a state-
ment blasting what it called
the “failed record” of
Bush’s economic policies
and promising “bottom up
economic growth” if the
Illinois senator is elected.

Census

Overall, the Census

found 37.3 million people °

living in poverty in 2007,
of which 13.3 million were
children. The poverty level
for a four-person family in
2007 was $21,203. Among
age groups, seniors had the
lowest poverty rate at 9.7
percent, while children had
the highest at 18 percent.
The poverty rate for 2006
was 12.3 percent, but the
change in 2007 was not sta-
tistically significant.

The welcome news on

health insurance coverage —

was tempered by the con-
tinued erosion of private
coverage paid for by
employers and individuals.
Government programs —
such as Medicaid for the
poor — picked up the
slack, resulting in the over-
all reduction in people
without health insurance.
The uninsured rate also
fell to 15.3 percent, down

from 15.8 percent.in 2006.

“Private insurance has
been falling (and) public
insurance definitely went
up,” said David Johnson,
who oversees the Census
division that produced the
statistics. The number of
uninsured children also fell
in 2007, after an increase
in 2006 that had interrupt-
ed years of progress in get:

. ting more kids covered.

But seen over a ibnget =
period of time, the health
insurance numbers are not
reassuring. The number of
uninsured — and the rate
— are higher today than
they were at the outset of

the Bush administration in

2001. That year, 39.8 mil-
lion people, or 14.1 per:
cent, were uninsured. —

“The number of unin-
sured is considerably high-
er than when the president
took office, and in each
year since then, employer-
sponsored insurance has

‘continued to diminish,”

said Ron Pollack, executive
director of Families USA, a
liberal group advocating
coverage for all. i

The Census report also

underscored the growing

between the earnings o

shrunk to an all-time. low.
In 2007, women working
full-time, year-round aver-
aged 78 percent of what
men earned. But the gen-
der gap varied considerably

- depending on the indus-

tries and. types of jobs
involved. And the good
news for women may not
necessarily be a positive
for family incomes. The
Census found that a major
reason the gap is shrinking
is that men’s earnings have
been fairly flat.

January Sth, 1975 - August 17, 2005

Your time on earth seemed all too brief because we wanted you in out lives forever.
And although we really miss you.
In our hearts we know that you a re at peace,
Still, countless.times throughout the day
We find ourselves remebering you.
- Although we cannot see or hear you ,
—— Weknow that you are with ws
We will feel you in the warmth of the summer sun
We will see you in the brilliance of autumn leaves
You'll be beside us in the peacefulness of a gentle breeze
And rejoice with us at the emergence
Of the first flower of spring,
We are thankful for the times we shared
And the priceless memories too;
For those memories are a comfort now when we'l lovingly
Remember You
With Love

A Mighty Fortress!

Text: Psalm 46: The Reformer’s Psalm: Theme:
God is our refuge: |



The unshakable confidence with which the Psalm
leaves the believer prompted Martin Luther to pen one
of the great hymns of all time, ““A Mighty Fortress Is
Our God. Martin’Luther wrote the song in 1529; and
Professor Frederick H. Hedge, of Harvard University
translated the song from German to English in 1853.
This hymn was sung at the funeral of American
President Dwight Eisenhower at the National Cathedral
in Washington, DC, March 1969.

Pastor Ben Bailey
The Prophetic Voice
P.O. Box N-9518

Nassau, Bahamas ; .
Tpv.inc@coralwave.com | This Psalm encourages us to hope and trust in God,

and His Power, Providence, and Gracious Presence

with His Church in the worst of times, and directs us
to give Him the glory of what He has done for us and what He will do: It is said
of Luther that, when he heard any discouraging news, he would say, Come let
us sing the forty-sixth Psalm. This Psalm is “To the chief Musician for the sons
of Korah, A Song upon Alamoth.” The word is used in Isaiah 7:14 which says,
“Therefore the Lord himself shall give you a sign; Behold, a virgin shall conceive,
and bear a son, and shall call His Name Immanuel.” Evidently the word means
“sung with virgins” and in this instance speaks of maidens’ voices.

It is important to see this Psalm in its proper setting. It belongs after Psalm 45
and with Psalms 47 and 48. To consider these Psalms apart from each other is
like the little boy who was asked to give a definition of a lie. In his explanation

. the little fellow put together two Scripture verses that were totally unrelated.

He said, “A lie is an abomination unto the Lord, but a very present help in time
of trouble.” He misinterpreted the Scripture: We smile at the little boy, but we
do the same thing by taking this Psalm out of context. Psalm 46 is a wonderful
soprano solo, in which we see the Sufficiency of God, the Security of God, and
the Supremacy of God.

The Sufficiency of God: God is our refuge and strength, a very present
help in trouble: God is our Strength, to bear us up under our burdens, to outfit
us for all our services and sufferings; He will by His Grace put strength in us.
The Psalmist couches his language in reason. Though the earth is removed, and
the mountains are carried into the midst of the sea, nevertheless, Israel [Church]
remains calm. The metaphors of these verses are designed to encompass whatever
violent disturbances Israel (Church) may encounter. What a powerful thought:
Most people think they are the only ones who have ever had trouble. Everyone
has trouble, but God’s People find God Sufficient in times of trouble. -

The Security of God: There is a river, the streams whereof shall make glad
the City of God: This must be understood spiritually; God’s Word and Ordinances
are rivers and streams with which God makes His Saints glad during cloudy
and dark days. Ever since the Garden of Eden, God has always had a river to
bring Peace to His Own; it is the River of God’s Grace. The psalmist is so
certain of God’s Grace in bringing about victory that he exclaims; God shall -
help her, and that right early. Some expositors consider this river symbolic. I
believe the River is a reality that speaks of the Supply and the Refreshment that
God gives even today, and that River is the Word of God: example:

Psalm 1: “The blessed man planted by the rivers of water; which is the Word
of God;” s

Ezekiel 47: “A river that flows out from the House of God.”

Revelation 22:1: John saw, “A pure river of the ‘Water of Life’, clear as crystal,
proceeding out of the Throne of God.” -

If God be for us, if God be with us, we need not be moved at the most violent
attempts made against us. If God lives in our hearts, in the midst of us, with
His Word dwelling richly in us, we shall be established, we shall be helped; let
us therefore trust and not be afraid; all is well, and will end well.

The Supremacy of God: Be still, and know that I am God: It is good for us,
on occasion, just to stand still and watch intently the Mighty Hand of God at
work. He tells us to be calm in the time of storm. Christ, you remember, was
in a storm with His Disciples, and He went to sleep. When they roused Him
from His Sleep, He had more trouble calming the disciples than He had calming
the storm.

I invite you today, whenever any discouraging news arises, “Come let us sing
the forty-sixth Psalm.”

Family must forgive

@ The family is the strongest unit in
any society. When that deteriorates
we have a dilemma on our hands.

Family is a hard relationship.
That's biological or otherwise. I say
that because whenever there is a mis-
understanding or disagreement those
people for whatever reason are the
hardest to forgive. I know that
shouldn't be but unfortunately that's
the way it goes a lot of the time.
When you attend funerals, families
may not be speaking to each other
because arrangements were not made
to their liking or some item didn't get
left for them. So you end up being
mad with dead people. .

Most of the time we allow pride to
get in the way, which makes it more
difficult to apologise. I'm of the firm
belief that we do what the Bible says
(for those who believe in it) in not let-
ting the sun go down on our wrath.
We think that is only for married cou-
ples and that's not so. I think it is the
case for whomever you happen to be
with. I also believe in leaving a gift at
the altar for a brother if he offends
you. This is humbling and says a lot
for a person's character.

We would live better with each
other if we actually did these things.
The sad thing is we do the complete
‘opposite. We let the sun go down on
our wrath and instead of confronting
a person in love who offended us, we

leave situations. in: a negative, state :
and hold this in our hearts for years.

Families die without conversation or

reconciliation, ever happening; and
that not only tragic but sad.

Family comes first which is hon-
ourable in the sight of God, the Bible
tells us. Again people are under the
impression that is for married people
only, not so. What if you never get
married? You wouldn't put the family
that you already have first?

If we don't do all that we can to
preserve the relationship of family we
fail ourselves and our country. I know
this is a process but the step has to be
made. I had a misunderstanding with
one of my sisters and when the whole

‘thing was over I thought about it and

felt horrible. There was an unsettling
within myself. So I picked up the
phone, called her and apologised.
Believe it or not I felt so much better.
Do you know what it would be like if
we were left alone in a room if we
hadn't repented?

We would have gone on with our
lives without speaking to each other
and that would not be good. What
would the excuse be for such bad
behaviour? We have the same parents
and grew up in the same house.
Regardless what happened, I'm glad
it was resolved.

do for God?

I would say that each one of us is
called to love, worship and serve God,
seeking to be holy by the grace of God
and to live a life that brings glory and
honour to God. Psalm 119:9-16 (NIV)
lists some possible responses) to the
question: “How do we keep ourselves
pure in this sin-ridden world?”

9) How can a young man keep his
way pure?
By living according to your word.

10) | seek you with all my heart;
do not let me stray from your ~
commands.

11) | have hidden your word in my
heart that | might not sin against you.

12) Praise be to you, O LORD;
teach me your decrees.

13) With my lips | recount all the
laws that come from your mouth.

14) | rejoice in following your
statutes as one rejoices in great riches.

15) | meditate on your precepts
and consider your ways.

16) | delight in your decrees;
| will not neglect your word.

When we seek God with all of our
heart, we place ourselves in a posi-
tion to be in intimate communion
with our Maker, Redeemer and
Sanctifier. We focus on what God
considers as essential, we want to
help others to enjoy the same gifts of
grace, and we prioritize on what has
eternal merit. What will you permit
God to do in and through you?



FAMILY members need to do all that they can to preserve the relationship of fam-
ily or they will fail ourselves and thevr country.

St. Andrews Preshyterian
Kirk takes on a new
permanent minister

@ By JEFFARAH GIBSON

AFTER many years of unsuccessful
searching, St Andrew’s Presbyterian Kirk

: will finally embrace a permanent minister

on August 26. Rev John Macleod, 36,
became a communicate member of the
Church of Scotland in Scaricta Manish.
Congregation in April 11,1991.

He holds a Master of Arts degree in
Gaelic Studies from Aberdeen University,
Scotland (1992-1995).

He also received a Bachelor of Divinity
Honours degree in 1995-1998.

He covered subjects in church history
such as the Old and New Testament studies
and practical systematic studies.

Described as a dedicated family man,
Rev Macleod is married to Carol and has
two children, Andrew and Bethany. Not
only is he dedicated to his family, but he
has dedicated himself to a number of out-
reach programmes.

As he is a very spiritual person, members
of St Andrew’s Presbyterian Kirk are very
confident that he will have an impact on
the church community.

Dr Davidson Hepburn, an elder at St
Andrew’s Presbyterian Kirk, said he is
looking forward to his arrival. “We have
had an interim of ministers before we
found a permanent minister,” he said.

Members at St Andrew Presbyterian
Kirk are also anticipating his arrival. Dr
Hepburn said members pester him about
the arrival of the new minister. He said they
would always ask: “When is the new minis-
ter coming?”

While his arrival is very good for the
church, the elder stressed that the new min-
ister by himself cannot make any changes,
but members must also make an effort to
help.

Rev Macleod sees his- move from
Scotland to the Bahamas as excellent
opportunity for growth.

Dr Hepburn wants the public to come
and hear him speak. His first sermon is on
September 7.

SCORES of Cat islanders paid their last respects to veteran Catechist John

Armbrister.

Cat Island Catechi
- [aid to rest at
~ Christ the King N.P.

Scores of Cat Islanders residing in

Nassau converged on Christ the King .

Anglican Church grounds in
Ridgeland Park on Saturday to pay
their last fond farewells to veteran
Catechist John Armbrister.

Catechist Armbrister started his
ministry at an early age. Since being a
Cat Islander he would travel from St.
Luke's Anglican Church, Smith's Bay
and far north as St. Agnes in Orange
Creek.

. During the Eucharistic Funeral cele-
bration presided over by Co-Adjutor
Bishop Laish Boyd, Fr. Chester
Burton, priest in charge of Cat Island,
received Catechist |Armbrister’s
remains from the foyer of the Church.

Afterwards, Christ the King Senior
Choir serenaded the mourners.

Also in attendance at the funeral

_ mass were a number of clergy Fr.
Rodney Burrows (Priest. in Charge of
Christ the King), Fr. Ivan 'Timmy'
Eldon, Deacon Bradley Miller, Canon
Warren Rolle (native of Cat Island
whose father was a catechist also) and
Archdeacon I. Ranfurly Brown
(Archdeacon for the East Central
Archdeaconry of which Cat Island is
under his jurisdiction.)

In his sermon Archdeacon Brown
took his text from Matthew's gospel
which states that the greatest among
the disciples should be the servant of

al. Brown — saluted Catechist
Armbrister for the yeoman service he
delivered to the Anglican -Church in
Cat Island and to our diocese.

He reflected that in the 1970s when
they went to Cat Island to replace St.
Andrew's Anglican Church roof in
Arthur's Town it was -Catechist
Armbrister who was at the forefront of
the work relief to assist the residents.
Archdeacon Brown acknowledged the
task was Herculean but he was always
accompanied by his wife Avis
Armbrister who was with him until the

very end and offered him spiritual and —

moral support. Catechist was laid to
rest in Woodlawn Gardens Cemetery.

On Sunday morning Fr. Burton told
the Anglican Communion in the
Northern area of Cat Island who were
unable to attend the funeral service
what transpired.

Fr. Burton informed the members
of both St. Agnes Orange Creek and
St. Andrew's Arthur's Town where
Catechist Armbrister served for many

‘years that after the singing of the

recessional hymn there would be a
minute of silence for our fallen war-
rior. The bell would then toll for a
minute for the legacy that Catechist
Armbrister left behind; if it weren’t for
catechists back in the earlier days,

many church doors would remain

closed.

The Papa John Family

FROM page 18

The production is about a family
whose name is “The Papa John
Family”, and the mother and father of
the family are celebrating their 45th
anniversary. They have two daughters,
August and Monday. Monday is the
obese daughter that struggles with her
weight while August is the daughter
blessed with a beautiful voice who is
working on her singing career. Henry is
the father and Gloria is the mother.
Donald is the husband of August and
they have a daughter by the name of
Juju. Both Donald and August are
having their own family problems
which August chooses to neglect.
Donald on the other hand wants to
solve the family disputes and continue
with the happy life that he and August
held. Mavis is considered the friend of
the family. The youth department
Final Hour Ministries all take on the

roles of those characters.

Heath Fowler, writer and producer
of the production, says that the youth
departmenat of the church have been
working very diligently to learn their

lines. He also notes that they are very

versatile. “They are very good at
improvising; if they forget their'lines in
practice you probably wouldn’t notice
it. They work very hard to learn their
lines and bring out the characters that
they play.”

The entire-church is looking forward
to watching the play and they also
anticipate it will be a great success.

“We do believe that the play will be
a success. Networking has also been
playing to our advantage since people
on various websites like Facebook and
Hi5 have already confirmed that they
will be present at the show.”

Along with the production Final
Hour Minstries also have a sitcom that

airs on ZNS and Cable 12. The name is ©

also The Papa John Family but is

slightly different from the Production.
The sitcom will be aired on ZNS on
Friday at 8pm.

This is about the last testament of

MRS. KENRIS CAREY’S time as
President of the Bahamas Conference
of the Methodist Church has expired
and she will be honoured at a service
on September 6, 2008.

Mrs. Carey, a native of Staniard
Creek, Andros and a veteran of World
Methodism, was elected as the first
Vice President of the Conference. She
served in this position for six years, the
longest term allowed for a Conference
Officer to serve in an elected position.

Mrs. Carey was later elected as
President of the Conference at the
Annual Conference in May 2002 when
the General Conference met in James’
Cistern, Eleuthera. She succeeded
Rev. Charles Sweeting who served as
the second President. Mrs. Carey has



served the maximum term as President
and retires from the presidency on
August 31, 2008.

She made history when she was
appointed to the highest position in
the BCMC. She was the first. woman
and the first lay person elected into
leadership of the Methodist Church.

The BCMC Constitution allows for
a Lay Person or a member of the
Clergy to serve in any and all posi-
tions in the Conference. Mrs. Carey
has given many years of her life to the
Methodist Church first. as a Lay
Preacher and then as a member of the
International World Methodist
Council.

The newly elected President, Rev.
William Bill Higgs, will be installed on
September 7, 2008 at the Ebenezer
Methodist Church.

Minnesota prosperity gospel preacher blasts IRS inquiry

m@ BROOKLYN PARK, Minn.

THE PASTOR of one of Minnesota’s
largest churches said an IRS investigation
into his ministry’s finances is “politically
motivated.”

The Rev. Mac Hammond is recogniza-
ble to’a wide audience through Sunday

morning TV broadcasts of his services-at -

Living Word Christian Center in Brooklyn
Park.

Hammond wrote in a letter to congre-
gants that “enemies of the gospel” are
behind the inquiry. He preaches the pros-
perity gospel, which says that God wants
his faithful mllowers to be rewarded spiri-
tually and financially.

Churches offer free gas.

@ VALLEY CITY, N.D.



CAROL UMSTED got more than the word of
God during services this summer at the
Congregational United Church of Christ of Valley

City, according to the Associated Press.
She also got $50 worth of free gas. For the local
farmer, it was a nice side benefit, at a time when gas

was more than $4 a gallon.

Churches nationwide are making sim-
ilar offers, ranging from gas card raffles
to 99 cent gas sales at local stations, to
boost attendance during the vacation
season and attract new members.

But some Christians question whether
a financial incentive should be used to
draw people into church.

Robert Kruschwitz, director of The
Center for Christian Ethics at Baylor
University, called the promotions
“unseemly” and “misguided.”

Umstead, a church official, said a cou-
ple of Valley City congregants stopped
attending because they considered it “a
bribe.” But the Rev. Carl Borden, pastor
of the congregation, said the overriding
goal is to have a little fun and remind
people that the church is there.

“It’s a method of marketing for the
church,” he said. “For a $200 investment
we’ve made, we got featured in the local
newspaper once, twice on TV, and it’s the
buzz around town. I can’t get a quarter-
page ad for $200.”

Church leaders have debated for years
whether modern marketing techniques
cheapen the faith or are an effective —
and necessary — means of evangelizing.
Even those Christians who believe some
marketing is helpful disagree about how
far they should take the approach.

David T. Olson, director of the
American Church Research Project and
head of church planting for. the
Evangelical Covenant Church, said inde-
pendent, Pentecostal and Baptist
churches with nontraditional ways of
attracting new members are more likely
to use promotions like the gas raffles.
But he said there are other more effec-
tive ways of drawing newcomers.

“I personally would encourage them

» thatyhaving people from their. chiirch.
build relationships with :their ‘friends ~
who do not attend church, and invite

them as their friend, would be a much |
better strategy,” Olson said.

Nathan White, an Atlanta-area
Baptist, was troubled by a church gas
card raffle he learned about at a Baptist
church in Snellville, Ga. The corporate
executive, who plans to become a pastor,
thinks gas giveaways are shameful finan-
cial gimmicks that undermine the
Gospel.

“They are appealing to the natural
corruptions in unbelieving people ... .
The Bible warns very explicitly about
the dangers of greed, the love of money
being the root of all evil,” said White.
“Appealing to the selfish motives of
people is not Christianity.”

The © nondenominational Liquid
Church in Morristown, N.J., took its gas
promotion outside of the church. -
Members went to a local service station
in August, bought $10,000 worth of fuel
and sold it for 99 cents a gallon.

“We canceled services that day, and
said our service to the community will
be our service,” said the Rev. Tim
Lucas.

“This wasn’t a gimmick, "Hey, come to
our church.’ There was no_bait-and-
switch. We didn’t try to convert people.
We just wanted to show we care,” he.
said. - aS

He noted that the church also pro-
vides money to drill wells in-African
countries.

There, “water is the most precious liq-
uid,” Lucas said. “In New Jersey, it’s
gas.” ;

Michael Cromartie, vice president of
the Ethics and Public Policy Center, a
Washington, D.C., think tank, said there
is a fine line between advertising a
church and using what he called “huck-
ster” means to entice outsiders.

He called the gas promotions in gen+
eral “a clever tool.”

walked off the job yesterday,
hampering operations in both

departments of the island's

m@ By TANEKA THOMPSON

tthompson@tribunemedia.net

A MOTHER of seven was
taken to hospital yesterday after
a passing neighbour thwarted

what is believed to be her,

attempt to commit suicide. The
neighbour saw the. woman
"hanging from a tree" in the

bushes near her mother's home

on Pitt Road.

According to reports from |

residents of the area, the neigh-
bour was walking along a dirt
path in the bushy area yesterday
morning when he spotted the
‘victim trying to end her life.
After rescuing her, neighbours
called police. Unconfirmed

reports: from residents of the °

area state the victim may have

tried to slit her wrists before she |

tried to hang herself.

The Tribune spoke with the

victim's mother, Princess
Knowles, outside her home. Ms
Knowles said she was asleep
when her 28-year-old daughter,

who she said has long-standing
drug abuse issues, came to her
home to see her.

Ms Knowles said she was
tired from a long work-shift the
night before and told her
daughter to come back in an
hour for breakfast. Minutes lat-
er, Ms Knowles said she was
wakened by the shocking news
of what is believed to be her
daughter's attempt to end her
life.

- "I didn't really see it because ©

where I worked last night I was

_sleepy, but my neighbour called

me and she tell me (my daugh-

ter) tried to kill herself and I

tell them to call the police."
She said the news stunned

' her: "I was very surprised. I did-

n't (think) she would do some-
thing like that. I didn't know it
was that bad. When she (came
here) I tell her, 'Wait ‘lil while,
let me get another hour sleep
man', so I thought she went to

sit out under the tree 'til I wake ©

Yesterday, staff of the Pinnacle Entertainment casi-

some of them into accepting “temporary employ-

New drive against

Bahamas breast

cancer ‘epidemic’



Local health group teams up with US Embassy and other partners

m@ By LLOYD ALLEN



IN an effort to assist in the
research and treatment of
breast cancer throughout the
Bahamas, the Cancer Society

yesterday announced the launch’

of the Bahamas Breast Cancer
Initiative in conjunction with
the United States Embassy and
other partners.

US Ambassador Ned Siegel, _

along with his wife Stephanie
Siegel, formally announced the

- launch of the new initiative.

Ambassador Siegel said in his
presentation that recent reports
have revealed that more than
40 per cent of Bahamian
women who are diagnosed with
breast cancer, and subsequent-

ly die of the disease, are under

the age of 50.

“Even if we cannot eradicate
this disease, through our efforts
we can certainly improve the
odds for so many Bahamian

. women through early detection,

proper education, and excellent
care,” said Ambassador Siegel.

The ambassador explained
that the main function of the
BBCI is to facilitate collabora-
tion between Bahamian and

American medical profession- .

als in'an united effort to
improve research and Breyeny
tion methods.

‘He said that increased efforts

~ by BBCI and others is the only.

answer to the breast cancer
“epidemic.”

BRCThas also partnered with

the Susan G Komen foundation

‘in its effort to improve breast

cancer education, awareness,
treatment and prevention in the
Bahamas.

President of the foundation

- Hala Moddelmog said that so
far, the Susan G Komen group

has invested more than $100
million in research, treatment,

about breast cancer.,

“Mud, Pigeon Pea ‘will

HAITIAN migrants living

A Tribune visit to the com-
munity of up: to 5,000: people
living in dangerous and unsan-

ment and private land opposite
the Abaco Immigration office

Cancer. survivor. is

‘a symbol of hope’

BH By LLOYD ALLEN

A BREAST cancer survivor
who lost her father, sister and
daughter to different types of

_cancer, has become a symbol
of hope for a new breast can-
cer awareness initiative in the
Bahamas. 4

Toni Lewis, 37, is a recent
survivor of breast cancer and is
the subject of a painting that is
recognised by the Bahamas
Breast Cancer Initiative
(BBCI) as its “image of hope”.

The BBCI is.a new initiative.
by the Bahamas Cancer Soci-

ety, in conjunction with United

States Embassy and other
partners, to assist in the
research and treatment of
breast cancer.

Mrs Lewis, speaking yester-

day at the launch of the initia-
tive, said that she was faced
with many challenges on her -
toad to recovery.

Her father died from liver
cancer at the age of 30, and
her sister died at the age of 20
from cancer, which was discoy-

ered after she had a tooth
-. removed.

Mrs Lewis was diagnosed
with: breast cancer in Novem-
ber 2006.

Just five months after her
diagnosis, her eight-year-old
daughter Treasure died as a
result of bone cancer.

Mrs Lewis said that through
it all she has learned that a

‘ cancer diagnosis is not the end.

For her, she said, it was only
the beginning and added that
she is proud to be part of the
BBCTI’s efforts.

Mrs Lewis said she hopes
that more Bahamian women
make the effort to become
educated about breast cancer.

Medical researchers have
noted that there is an unusual-
ly high rate of cancer among
Bahamians, particularly young
Bahamians.

They also fear’that an alarm-
ing number of Bahamian
women may carry a gene that
significantly increases the
chances of developing breast
cancer.

like that, and we hope some-

Our main concern generally i 1S

that Haitians who arrive in the

past we don't think the gov-

ernment has done enough to -

However, Mr McCartney,
who has taken an aggressive
approach to the repatriation
of Haitian migrants since he
came to office in June, said
care is being taken to distin-
guish genuine refugees escap-
ing political violence in Haiti
which has put their lives in
danger.

He said: "Our officers do

Haitians who are refugees and

migrants who are here for eCO-

Vernon Burrows has said:
"Some people think the most

MANY BAHAMIANS now want to know
if BEC is passing on its full fuel costs to the
consumer. The reason for the question is that

citizens know that between its oil spills, and. .

gas guzzling turbines, BEC is not.the most
efficient corporation in trying to keep down
its fuel costs.

Bahamians resent the thought — which is
now a conviction — that in addition to high-
er fuel costs, taxpayers are also paying for
this corporation’s built-in inefficiency.

They want to know if government should
not take this inefficiency into consideration
and shoulder some of the cost.

Of course, in the end it all comes back to
the taxpayer, but at least what’s shaved off
the gas bill can be put somewhere else where
the average citizen will have at least a choice
as to whether he needs the commodity or
can bypass it because he can’t afford it. With
BEC the consumer has no choice.

Unless he wants to go back to the cave
and live in darkness, he has no choice over his
fuel supply. If he wants light, he has to trade
with BEC.

Someone was telling us this week of a’

businessman who ran his generator to reduce
his light bill. After a time, ‘he discovered that
it was cheaper for him to provide fuel for his

generator to keep his lights burning than.to._.

face BEC’s quarterly rates.

Apparently, according to our informant, an
inspector, presumably from BEC, caught on
to what was happening. The businessman
was told he was breaking the law. To be using
his generator when BEC’s electricity was
available was not permitted, he was told.

“It’s not that I could go down the road
and select a cheaper company to do business
with,” he said. He resented the fact that he
was forced to trade with a government-owned
corporation he believed was making no effort -
to protect his interests by trying to operate a
cheaper, more efficient plant, and now that he

‘had decided to assist himself, he was to be
prosecuted.

And so the complaints have porte dai-

ly getting louder.
Jerome Elliott, head of BEC’s internal

renewable energy committee, says the cor-'--

poration has received a lot of interest from
Bahamas-based and international sources on
its Renewable Energy Power Generation
Tender, which closes September 12.

He said the tender invited proposals from _.

cerned,” said Mr Elliott, “the world is moving

on towards renewable energy. We have to

be a player, no matter how minimal it is. If
there is a shift away from traditional forms of
generation, we can’t be the last person in
line. We have to be a player in that regard.”

The world is desperate to be free of Mid-
dle East oil and unstable oil-producing
nations, headed by volatile dictators who can

‘hold nations to ransom for an expensive oil

barrel.

Even the once feared nuclear plant is com-
ing into its own. France produces 80 per cent
of its energy needs from nuclear plants and
more Americans are asking: “If France can °
safely do it why can’t we?”

Oil companies are drilling for oil in our —

waters. We think we would prefer a natural
gas storage plant on Ocean Cay than ugly
oil rigs marring our marine landscape.

There is even a marijuana group that
explains that the reason it wants to legalize
“hemp has little to do with getting high, but a
great deal to do with fighting oil giants like
the once-powerful Saddam Hussein, Exxon
and Iran.”

The marijuana lobby claims that hemp is. _ |.

such.a.versatile raw material that its “products
not. only.compete with petroleum, but with
coal, natural gas, nuclear energy, pharma-

ceutical, timber and textile companies.” This ,
_ group has estimated that “methane and

methanol production alone from hemp grown
as bio-mass could replace 90 per cent of the
world’s energy needs.”

We can by-pass that suggestion.

On.-August 12, Russell Miller, Bahamas
Hotel Association president, wrote to Prime
Minister Hubert Ingraham, admitting that
the association hadn’t the resources or exper-
tise to ascertain the environmental impact
of the AES LNG (natural gas) proposal,-but
if it passed government’s due diligence tests, .
then it is “clear that the conversion to natur-
al gas by BEC will significantly reduce our
present level of carbon emissions.

“We are confident,” he told the Prime
Minister, “that any environmental concerns

with this proposal can be adequately .

and residents far outweigh any potential lim-
ited impact. Prime Minister, we should note

‘ EDITOR, The Tribune.

ON Monday, August 4,

~ 2008 (which was the holiday),
I accompanied my sister and —

my four-month-old niece to
the Princess Margaret Hospi-
tal because she was experi-
encing bronchial problems,
lack of appetite and a runny
nose.

In fact she had eeome
quite pale whilst in our care;
all the reason why we consid-
ered our case an extreme
emergency.

Upon our arrival, we fol-

lowed the regular routine and
registered my niece which also

‘entailed informing the nurse
-at the front desk about her

symptoms.
To my disbelief, she told us

to return the following day

because there was not a pae-
diatrician on duty at that time,
and there was not going to be
one scheduled for that day.
Unbelievable!

Do they believe that babies
become ill only when paedia-
tricians are scheduled to

-work?

After gathering my

thoughts, I then ask if another

doctor or nurse could at least
see the baby as there is an
antenatal ward in the hospi-
tal.

More than likely someone
who also is a trained profes-
sional can assist, even if he/she
was an intern.

The nurse’s response was
“you will have to. wait five to
six hours and that doctor can’t
help you because you will still
need to see a paediatrician.”.
This nurse did not seem sym-

| pathetic to any degree.

we then had to take the sick
child home and prayed to God
that she did not worsen during
the night.

The following morning, she
looked even worse and we

rushed her back to the hospi- "

tal.
After seeing her condition,
they immediately gave her

.oxygen.and. authorised a few

other tests including x-rays.

The results proved that my

niece had pneumonia, an
internal fever and sinus.

.. Although it is no secret that
most of the staff at: the

Princess Margaret Hospital:

are disgruntled or fed up with
the procedures of health care,
why must-they pass this on to
the patients?

Also what about the doc-

Government: should’ have pulled
the plug on ‘Bahamar saga long ago

_ EDITOR, The Tribune.

THE time has long since
come and gone when the gov-
ernment should have pulled

_ the plug on the Cable Beach

saga involving Bahamar.

It is obvious that the princi-
pals of that company are
“challenged” with many

issues, apparently, such as:

financing; employee morale;
no vision; no credible casino
operator and, of course, pos-
sibly inept Bahamian and for-
eign managers.

The “deal”, made originally - -

under the defunct PLP admin-
istration was a bad-one to start
with. Too much Crown land

“he Haberdusher or Gentlemen’





was “given away” for pittance
money, ab initio (from the
beginning), was an apparent
“problem”.
With the closure of the Nas-

sau Beach Hotel, the “kiss of :

death”: loomed on this fiasco.
The recent dismissal of scores

of long time, hard working |

employees, including my
eldest child, Tamicka Bodie
Johnson (a sous chef with over
10 years experience) was the
straw that broke the camel’s

back. Bahamar in my view, is
not.a good deal for the
Bahamas and should be ter-
minated at the earliest oppor-
tunity.

POLICE will take appropri-
ate action wherever it is deter-
mined that officers are con-
ducting themselves in a “sub-
standard” manner or doing
things that they should not be,

Acting Commissioner of Police

Reginald Ferguson said yester-
day.

According to the commis-
sioner, the fact that a proposed
transfer of numerous officers
from the Central Police Station
in the wake of corruption
claims has yet to go ahead does
not mean that it is not going to.

And in the meantime, an
investigation is underway
despite the fact that the offi-
cers remain, said Mr Ferguson.

The officers were accused
three weeks ago of smuggling
alcohol and drugs into the sta-
tion for inmates detained there,
as well as facilitating visits from
their wives and girlfriends with
whom they were allowed to
have sex at the station.

Jamaican suspect Omar
Smith, wanted in connection
with a drug case, was also able
to escape from the station on
July:21 — allegedly with the help
of certain officers there.

On Tuesday, officer in charge
of Central, Chief Superinten-
dent Bernis Pinder said that the
group of officers had not been
moved in the week and a half
since it was announced they

i . would be because their replace-

ments “have not arrived”.

He previously indicated the
transfer should be finalised by
the end of last week.

Since then, more damaging

-claims have emerged about offi-
cers at the station, with it being
suggested an inmate suffered a
broken arm on Monday after
being “beaten” in a cell at the
station by some officers.

The offending officers includ-
_ed some.of those who were set
to be transferred because of the
_ corruption claims, the daily
reported. ,

who are set to be transferred.

However,.he expressed con-

claims is ongoing despite the
fact that they remain at Cen-
tral.

“It was determined they
should be transferred (and)
there are certain procedures to
go through to effect that,” said
Mr Ferguson.

“The transfer process is han-

Mr Pinder. I’m sure he’s going
to get that done because that’s
the instructions that are out
there, for those officers to be

The police chief downplayed
the injuries suffered by the
inmate during the latest inci-
dent on Monday — claiming that
rather than being beaten until
his arm was broken, his limb
was sprained while he attempt-
ed to resist being searched by
an officer who caught him

NASSAU-based shipping com-

efforts to attract more Bahami-
ans to careers in the maritime
industry.

“There are a lot of opportuni-
ties there. Great careers can be
established,” said John Moyell,
vice-president of Clipper Group
on Monday he prepared for the
first Bahamas International Mar-
itime Conference and Trade
Show scheduled to take place in
Freeport, Grand Bahama.

“We work very closely with the
Bahamas Maritime Cadet Corps
to spread the word around for
young Bahamians-to be more
interested in sea-going careers.

“We have young Bahamian
cadets on some of our ships, but
we sure do not have enough,” he
said: Beginning November 19 at
the Westin at Our Lucaya Resort,
the three-day conference and
trade show will showcase the mul-
tiple facets of the Bahamas’ mar-
itime industry, particularly as they
relate to trans-shipment, trade,
ship ownership, registry services,
ship repair and other things. The
theme is “Opportunities in Trade
and Maritime Services”.

‘High quality desalinated
water comes to Acklins

Large projects planned for Green Turtle Cay and Little Exuma for late 2008

THE residents of Snug Cor-
ner, Mason’s Bay in Central
Acklins and Salina Point in
South Acklins, are enjoying
high quality desalinated water
for the first time in the history
of the island as a result of recent
works completed by the Water
and Sewerage Corporation.

Both communities have
brand new distribution piping
systems supplied by new desali-
nation plants.

Over 100 customers are
already connected and more are
being processed daily accord-
ing to Corporation officials.

“The Corporation is very
appreciative of the support pro-
vided and understanding dis-

played by the communities dur-.

ing the project and it is hoped
that a formal commissioning
ceremony will be scheduled in
the near future to formally
mark this achievement,” said

manager of the Family Islands
and marine operations for the
Water and Sewerage Corpora-
tion. The Acklins project includ-
ed approximately 23,000 feet of
new mains in Snug Corner,
Mason’s Bay, and another
12,000 feet of new water mains
in Salina Point. In addition to
the new water.supply, an oper-
ations centre for Corporation
customers was completed in
Snug Corner which will serve
as.a commercial centre for Cor-
poration customers on the
island and as a staff facility.

Total project expenditure was
well over $1 million.

This project follows on the
heels of the Long Cay desali-

nation plant project that was _

completed in August 2007 and
the Sweetings Cay desalination
plant project that was complet-
ed in March 2008.

Next on the Corporation’s
agenda is a small desalination

plant and distribution system
for Current Island, Eleuthera.

The Corporation has award-
ed a contract to Watermakers
Incorporated for the supply and
operation of the desalination
plant and bidding is now in
progress for the installation of.
the distribution system.

It is hoped that this new

- desalinated water supply could

be operational and ready for
this Christmas:

Meanwhile in Little Exuma, -
the Corporation is preparing to.

extend distribution and trans-
mission mains from Rolletown
to’ Williams Town at a cost of
over $2 million. The tender
process for these works should

_commence shortly. The Corpo- _.
ration has also received the gov-

ernment’s approval to proceed
with a $3.6 million project to
serve all of Green Turtle Cay,
Abaco, via an underwater main
from mainland Abaco. The pro-

Religious leaders call on Governor ener

ject will consist of approxi-
mately 15,000 feet of underwa-

‘ter mains and another 26,000

feet of transmission and distri-
bution mains on the island serv-
ing all potential customers.

This will be a complex pro-
ject due to its many components
and it is projected that the initial
supplies will commence during
the summer of 2009.

“The Corporation will con-
tinue to work with the govern-
ment of the Bahamas as we
seek to bring potable water to
each and every resident of the
Bahamas at the earliest oppor-
tunity while appreciating that
due to the archipelagic nature of
the Bahamas and the inherent
logistical challenges and neces-
sary duplications of key systems,
this will require substantial
investment,” said Godfrey Sher-

. man, general manager at the

Water and Sewerage Corpora-
tion.

Bahamas conference to showcase
opportunities in maritime industry

NASSAU-BASED Ship-
ping companies are intensi-
fying their efforts to attract
.more Bahamians to careers

in the maritime industry.

“There are a lot of oppor-
tunities there,” said John

: Moyell, vice president of
the Clipper Group, as they
prepared for the first
Bahamas International Mar-
‘itime Conference and Trade
Show slated for Freeport,
Grand Bahama. “Great

careers can be established. |

“We work very closely
with the Bahamas Maritime
Cadet Corp to spread the
word around for young
Bahamians.to be more
interested in seagoing

* careers.

“We have young Bahami-

an cadets'on some. of our
‘ ships, but we sure do not
have enough.”

Beginning November 19

at the Westin at Our Lucaya








. Resort, the three-day con-

ference and trade show will
showcase the multiple facets
of the Bahamas’ maritime
industry, particularly as they
relate to transshipment,
trade, ship ownership, reg-

istry services, ship repair

and other things. The theme
is ‘Opportunities in Trade
and Maritime Services’.

Address

The conference will be
opened by Prime Minister
Hubert Ingraham and Inter-
national Maritime Organi-
sation secretary general
Efthimios E Mitropoulos
will deliver the keynote
address.

“This will put the
Bahamas on the map as a
leading maritime country,”
said Mr Moyell. “It is
important that we have

Bahamas L

more activities relating to
the maritime world taking
place here.”

Kamanna Valluri, manag- .

ing director and president
of Dockendale Shipping
said they are “look forward
to playing an even greater
role in promoting Bahamian
maritime cadets and engi-
neers.

“There is a demand for
them, and the Bahamas,
having the third largest ship
registry in the world, should
be taking more advantage
of these opportunities.” :

Minister of the Environ- .

ment Earl Deveaux said the
conference and trade show

“is extremely good news for

the Bahamas. It is a time
when stakeholders come
together to discuss issues

facing the industry.”
He met with Nassau-\

based shippers on Monday.
“There is great interest in

growing the maritime indus-
try and we have an early
indication that people in the
industry are prepared to
substantially support an ini-
tiative to develop the mar-
itime. industry in. the
Bahamas,” he said.

Amendment

“Incredible opportuni-
ties” await qualified
Bahamians, and with the
proposed amendment to the
Boat Registration Act “we
can encourage more

Bahamians to get involved -

in the maritime industry,”
said Mr Deveaux.

“There is also a huge and
growing market for large
yachts and we want to
expand our registry in that

direction which could open

more ‘opportunities for
Bahamians.”

Ross University
begins construction
in Grand Bahama

CONSTRUCTION will

begin on the interim campus -

of Ross University on August
25, only four weeks after the
public announcement of the
Bahamas.campus.

The works to be carried out
consist of the fitting out of
around 30,000 square feet of
space in the Seahorse Shop-
ping Centre in Freeport, con-
struction of administration
and faculty spaces as well as
classrooms.

Other support areas such as
restrooms, storage and. IT

spaces will make up the total °

scope of the work. s

The cost of this work will
be around $2 million. Com-
pletion is slated for Decem-
ber 31.

According to ' Bruce

LaFleur, Ross University's

architect and. construction
manager, emphasis was placed
from the start on, hiring local
Grand Bahama firms for the
construction improvements to
the interim Ross campus.

"I was instructed to identify
all of the local firms that had
the resources to complete such
a large project in such a short

.time period. All of the firms I

identified were provided with
the same information, and
were invited to submit sealed
construction bids," explained



“All Bahamas
Construction Ltd.
is pleased to have
this opportunity
to work with
Ross University
on this important
project.” —



Wolfgang Geiger

LaFleur.

In keeping with Ross poli-
cies regarding an open and fair
bidding process, all bidders
were asked to be present at
the meeting on August 20
when sealed bids were first
presented to Ross, and
opened in front of all bidders.

‘Each bid was read publicly
and Verified for completeness
by. Ross officials and Bruce

. LaFleur and Associates. Once .

this process was completed the
bid was awarded to the lowest
bidder, which was All
Bahamas Construction Co Ltd
(ABC).

"We had two goals for this
process," said Sandi Cutler,
Ross vice president for plan-

ning and business develop-.

Bank Teller
Training

SmartChoice

ment, who is overseeing the
Bahamas project. "The first
was to select a local firm capa-
ble of completing this com-
plex project. The second was
to begin to establish a local

teputation for fair and honest

business dealings. We plan to
build a number of additional
structures over the next few’
years and want the local build-
ing industry to know that
every company will have

equal access to our business.

We plan to use a similar pub-
lic process for future con-
struction projects."

President of ABC Wolfgang ©

-Geiger said: "All Bahamas

Construgtion Ltd. is pleased

_to have this opportunity to

work with Ross University on
this important project, and we
will work diligently and effec-
tively to complete the interim
campus for their January 2009
opening."

Classes for the first semester

' of the Bahamas Ross Univer-

sity interim campus are set to
commence in January 2009
with around 250 students and
50 faculty and staff.

The hiring of staff and fac-’
ulty is already underway. The

pus until the official campus
is completed and opened in.

relationship with the islands

of the Bahamas. She present-
ed them with authentically
Bahamian gifts and certificates

The women, who both teach
in the New York school sys-
tem, have visited the Bahamas
at least once each year for
more than 30 years.

For several years, they vis-
ited three times in one year.

“Tt used to be every time we
were on break, we were here,”
said Ms Simmons.

“When we weren’t in
school, we were here in Nas-
sau.’

The women made their lat-

. est trip to Nassau this August

IN honour of Independence Day, and ‘in an effort to promote
domestic tourism, Furniture Plus decided to send two customers,
plus one guest each, to the’ country’s “Pineapple Capital” for a
weekend of exploration and enjoyment.

First class Furniture Plus promotion winners Denise Feast of Nas-
sau and Nicole Holbert of Grand Bahama each won an all-expense
paid getaway for two to the Valentine’s Resort in Harbour Island,
Eleuthera, with round-trip transportation provided by Regional Air
and Sky Bahamas, along with Bahamas Fast Ferries.

Customers who made a minimum purchase of $250 during the
month of July were eligible to enter the competition.

Coming out on top were Ms Feast and Ms Holbert.

“These ladies demonstrated their super sense of style and nation-
al pride by accentuating their respective homes with tasteful selec-
tions from Furniture Plus,” the furniture store said i in a press
release.

“Promotion sponsors Bahamas Fast F erries, iene with Region-
al Air and Sky Bahamas, will ensure that Denise, Nicole and their

" guests are transported in total comfort and style to the pristine, pink

shores of Harbour Island. Upon arrival they will be welcomed at
Valentine’s, the island’s premier vacation resort, where they’ll
experience the finest accommodations and highest level of ser-
vice provided at this world renowned yachter’s paradise,” Furniture
Plus said. —

-This year’s “Eleuthera getaway” is the second installment in
the Furniture Plus “Island Hop Series”, where lucky patrons enter

‘to win weekend getaways to locations across the Bahamas.

It is a continuing effort on the company’s part to boost domestic
tourism and give more Bahamians a first-hand opportunity to
experience the beauty and bounty of the islands, Furniture Plus said.

There are several more island getaways planned exclusively for,

Furniture Plus customers for the remainder of the year. These
include trips to some of the tourism industry’s “best kept secret”
island destinations.

’ Furniture Plus was founded in December of 1988 by the late Paul
Patrick Tyrone d’Arville and his son, Troy T d’Arville.

Over the past 20 years, Furniture Plus has grown into one of the
Bahamas’ leading furniture stores with a wide selection of furniture
that includes kitchen, bedroom, dining, and living room, as well as
home office furnishings and accessories.

PAIR FILL POSTS OF SECONDARY SCHOOL COORDINATOR AND MIDDLE SCHOOL COORDINATOR

Lucaya International School promotes two
Grand Bahama teachers to key positions

AS all schools prepare for
the new year, Lucaya Inter-
national School (LIS) will
open this Thursday with two
well-known Grand Bahama
teachers promoted to key
positions.

Nigel Kirkby and Catherine
Hindley, who have both
taught in Grand Bahama for
many years, will now take on
the responsibilities of sec-
ondary school coordinator and
middle school coordinator
respectively.

Mr Kirkby began his
Bahamian teaching career at
St Andrew's International
School in Nassau in 1990,
where he was a physical edu-
cation teacher until leaving
the island and moving to
Grand Bahama in 1996.

He transferred to the gov-
ernment system at Walter
Parker Primary for five years.

Mr Kirkby then went on to
teach at the Discovery School,
now renamed Bishop Michael
Eldon, for two years until'he
joined the Lucaya Interna-
tional School staff in 2004 as
the physical education teacher
and CAS coordinator.

"I am very pleased to have
been given this opportunity to
help continue the develop-
ment of the high school pro-
gramme," he said.

"I look forward to helping
provide and improve our first
class international education
with a Bahamian flavour.”

Mr Kirkby will continue to

Mrs Hindley, who is well
known to many former stu-
dents in Grand Bahama will
now become the LIS middle
school coordinator.

She began her Bahamian
teaching career in the govern-

ment education system in 1984 -

at the West End All Age

and has been part of the rapid
development of the school
over the years.

"I am looking forward to
the challenge of this new posi-
tion," said Mrs Hindley.

"I know that with the coop-
eration and support of col-
leagues and parents alike, the
middle school years at LIS will
be rewarding as we develop
the curriculum and provide
new challenges for the stu-
dents in preparation fdr the

high school." :

Mrs Hindley will be respon-
sible for the middle school
curriculum, assessment and
pastoral care for the students.
She will also coordinate after-
school clubs and CAS up to
year 11, which is an integral
part of the International Bac-
calaureate system.

School Director Mark Gif-



‘The Spectra5/CERATO has a sporty attitude with its sport-

ford noted "Mrs Hindley's in-
depth knowledge of the stu-

dents in her care will be a real.

asset in creating a supportive
environment for the students."
Lucaya International School
is coming off a very successful
year with 90 per cent of the
2008 IB class awarded the
prestigious IB Diploma.
This is an exceptional

’ achievement for a small school

and surpasses the average

international pass rate, which

was at 78 per cent.

The school is now concen-,

trating on the opening of the
International Baccalaureate

Study Centre. This 5,700-
square foot building will give
the school an additional six
classrooms, a study room, and

teacher's office, all on land | .

adjacent to the school.

“We are very excited about

this new school year," said Mr
Gifford.

"With both Mr Kirkby and

Arctic sea ice drops
to the second lowest
level on record

@ WASHINGTON

MORE ominous signs Wednes-
day have scientists saying that a
global warming “tipping point”
in the Arctic seems to ibe hap-
pening before their eyes: Sea ice
in the Arctic Ocean is atjits sec-
ond lowest level in about 30 years,
according to Associated Press.

The National Snow and Ice
Data Center reported that sea ice
in the Arctic now covers about
2.03 million square miles. The
lowest point since satellite mea-
surements-began in 1979 was 1.65

million square miles set last Sep-

tember.

With about three weeks left in
the Arctic summer, this year
could wind up breaking that pre-
vious record, scientists said.

Arctic ice always melts in sum-
mer and refreezes in winter. But
over the years, more of the ice is
lost to the sea with less of it recov-
ered in winter. While ice reflects
the sun’s heat, the open ocean
absorbs more heat and the melt-

ing accelerates warming in other —

- parts of the world.

Sea ice also serves as primary
habitat for threatened polar
bears. |

“We could very well be in that
quick slide downward in terms of

' passing a tipping point,” said
senior scientist Mark Serreze at
the data center in Boulder, Colo.
“Tt’s tipping now. We're seeing it
happen now.’

Within “five to less than ‘10
years,” the Arctic could be free of

- sea ice in the summer, said

NASA ice scientist Jay Zwally.

“It also means that climate
warming is also coming larger and
faster than the models are pre-
dicting and nobody’s really taken
into account that change yet,” he
said.

Five climate scientists, four of
them specialists on the Arctic,
told The Associated Press that it
is fair to call what is happening in
the Arctic a “tipping point.”
NASA scientist James Hansen,
who sounded the. alarm about
global warming 20 years ago
before Congress, said the sea ice
melt “is the best current exam-
ple” of that. :

‘Last year was an unusual year
when wind currents and other

weather conditions coincided with —

global warming to worsen sea ice
melt, Serreze said. Scientists won-

~. dered iflast year was an-unusual
“event or’ the start of a new and

disturbing trend.

— outside
Princess Margaret Hospi-
tal's administration block
yesterday morning, the
frustrated morgue employ-
ees claimed they were wor-
ried about their health
because of mould growth,
poot ventilation and a leak-
ing roof in the Rand Lab.
They are also agitating for
the hospital administration
to approve a career path

ted last year to allow job

workers.

"We need the money,
yes, but we need a better

er (is too) small, the dis-
secting area is not big

morgue staff feel "used"
and "misled" after broken
promises from hospital offi-
Clals. 3):

"They felt as though

‘they've been used and mis-
led, and as % a result they're

now taking action. They've
been promised some com-
pensation for working in a
hazardous environment,

they were expecting it in
July and it didn't happen,
again in August when they
received their pay and they
didn't see that happening,"

Mr Pinder said outside
Princess Margaret Hospital
yesterday.

"In relation to the laun-
dry department, there is a
whole list of concerns that
were sent to PMH and to
the union to assist with
having some equipment
that needed to be repaired
to actually make the work-
ing environment more con-
ducive to productivity.
We're saddened that it
takes this kind of action for
them to immediately take
steps. They had installed.
some equipment that was
necessary to run the laun- ~
dry department, but they
were not operational."

Mr Pinder said the dis-
gruntled staff would con-
tinue to strike until next
week if need be.

"We will stay out here

until we are satisfied until

the matter has been prop: »
erly addressed. It could be
all day today, could be all
day tomorrow, it could be
next week. Sometime you
got to make sacrifices to
get the matters resolved.
Once the working environ-
ment is conducive to pro-.,
ductivity, we will ask our
workers to return to work."
Mr Pinder said yester-

_ day's protest spurred hos-

pital staff to install some of
the equipment the laundry -
department needs to per-
form their duties. .

2009. However, some of the employees ~

that The Tribune stoke to yesterday were
hesitant to accept the company’s offer,
claiming that there was “no guarantee”
that the casino would be open a month
from now — let alone January of next
year.

Furthermore, this temporary employ-

against them when the company finally
shuts down its casino operations as they
would then not be required to pay them
their full severance packages.

‘attempts suicide’

FROM page one

up (to) get her breakfast for her."
She said her daughter was visibly distraught when the police

aoe -arrived-and had to be-ripped from her arms to be taken to-hospital.

The neighbour, who saved her daughter's life, had left the area for
work by the time a Tribune reporter arrived.

Ms Knowles said her daughter's children, ages five to 14, are all
in the care of the Department of Social Services with the exception .
of the oldest who is incarcerated. Her daughter's last visit to see her
children brought the young mother to tears, Ms Knowles said.

The mother said that she and her daughter have a close rela-
tionship, and she continues to pray for a child who she feels fell in
with bad company.

"(Our relationship) is very, very good. I used to send her to
Miami just about every year but she get in with (bad company) and
get on drugs. I pray for her all the time, she tell me pray for her and
I pray for her, and she still ain’ change. She gone change after
today, I guess."

The Tribune attempted to obtain police confirmation of the inci-
dent, but Press Liaison Officer Assistant Supt Walter Evans said he
was not aware of the attempted suicide.

Up to press time last night, the condition of the victim was

' unknown. This suicide attempt comes.a week after 11-year-old

Devante McPhee of East Street was found by his grandmother

_hanging from a clothesline with a rusty chair next to him.

His death prompted speculation that the young boy may have
been playing some sort of "hanging game" with two other boys.
So far, police have classified his death as accidental.

‘Ross University

THE PORT Group Limit-. :

ed (PGL) said that it is
delighted to see the progress
that Ross University has
made.

Ross University has, with-
in only a few weeks, been
able to obtain prices from
local Bahamian contractors
and has actually awarded the

_ contract for preparing their

facilities in order to receive

. students beginning January

2009.
“The bidding method was

. transparent and it is of course

to be appreciated that the
contractors invited were all
Bahamian. No doubt this will
be the beginning of.the
tremendous impact that the
establishment of Ross Uni-
versity will have on the econ-
omy of Grand Bahama
Island, and bodes well for the
future of our island,” the

_PGL said in a statement.

E Christiansen, chairman
of PGL said, “It has only
been a month since the
announcement of the Ross
University Bahamas Campus,
and so we are pleased to see

. that Ross is working aggres-

sively to complete its tempo-
rary campus for January
2009, and has drawn on the
pool of local Bahamian tal-
ent for this endeavour.”

m JERUSALEM

SCIENTISTS using American
space technology have started a
huge project to digitally photo-
graph the Dead Sea Scrolls, the
oldest known version of the
Hebrew Bible, and post it on the
Internet for all to see, Israeli
authorities said Wednesday,
according to Associated Press.

High-tech cameras using
infrared photography are being
used to uncover sections of the
2,000-year-old scrolls that have
faded over the centuries and
become indecipherable, the

Israeli Antiquities Authority said.

The project is expected to take
about five years and the goal is to
make the scrolls accessible to sci-
entists and the general public,
Antiquities Authority official
Pnina Shor said. .

“Now for the first time the
scrolls will be a computer click

Dead Sea Scrolls to be displayed on Internet

away,” said Shor, who heads the
authority’s department responsi-
ble for the conservation of arti-
facts. “This will ensure that the
scrolls are preserved for another
2,000 years.”

Experts have complained for
years that. only a small number
of scholars have been allowed
access to the scrolls and the thou-
sands of fragments that were
found in caves near the Dead Sea
in the late 1940s. In recent years,
steps have been taken to widen
access, but many of the findings

are still not properly identified |

and categorized.

To. protect the scrolls, Shor
said, the new imaging will be
done in a setting that minimizes
exposure to light.

A -pilot project started
Wednesday and when it is fin-

ished, it will be possible to deter-

mine how long it will take to dig-

itize the thousands of fragments

POPPY CULTIVATION ‘HAS DROPPED 19 PER CENT SINCE 2007

UN says Afghanistan’s opium
crop shrinks after record high |

m@ By CARLOTTA GALL
c.2008 New York Times
News Service

KABUL, Afghanistan —
Afghanistan’s opium harvest
has dropped from last year’s
record. high,

contending that the tide of
opium that engulfed
Afghanistan/in ever rising
harvests since 2001 was final-
ly showing signs of ebbing.
“The opium floodwaters in
Afghanistan have started to
recede,” Antonio Maria Cos-

‘ta, the executive director of
the U.N. Office on Drugs and .

Crime, wrote in the foreword
to the 2008 edition of the
annual opium survey, pub-

lished Tuesday. “Afghan soci-

ety, has started to make
progress in ‘its fight against
opium,” Costa added.
Poppy cultivation has
dropped by 19 percent since
2007, and has fallen beneath

2006 levels as well, the report .

said. The harvest is also
down, although by a lesser
margin because of greater
yields, dropping by 6 percent
to an estimated’ 8,500 tons.
More than
Afghanistan’s provinces have
now been declared poppy
free — that is, 18 of 34
provinces grow few or no

poppies, up from 13 poppy-

free provinces last year.

The results, gathered by
the United Nations through
satellite imagery and checks
on the ground, are a success
for the Afghan government’s
strategy of weaning farmers

from the illicit crop through ,

persuasion, incentives and
local leadership. A drought
in northern Afghanistan also
helped bring numbers down,
although it has also increased
the hardship for farmers.
The report underscores a

free this year, a consequence
of effective local leadership
and the support of religious
leaders, elders and local
council members, Costa said:
at a news briefing in Kabul
on Tuesday évening.
Nevertheless, Afghanistan’s
poppy crop still remains the
world’s largest, and now 98
percent of the crop is. grown
in the lawless southern and
southwestern regions that are
in the grip of a virulent insur-

gency. Two-thirds of all opi-.

um in Afghanistan in 2008
was grown in Helmand
Province, where the Taliban
control whole districts. Eight

“

thousand Bata troops work-
ing with government soldiers
have failed to make much

‘ headway in curbing either

Taliban activities or the drug
industry.

“If Helmand were a coun-
try, it would once again be
the world’s biggest producer
of illicit drugs,” Costa wrote.

The fact that poppy and
opium production is thriving
in areas where’the insurgency
is strongest shows the link
between drugs and conflict,
he said; contending that both
need to be dealt with at the
same time. The Taliban were
making up to $70 million a

year taxing poppy farmers,
and were collecting their
share of the estimated $3 bil-
lion made yearly by the drug -
traffickers i in Afghanistan, he
said.

Costa called on NATO, the
United States and the Afghan
military to destroy drug lab-
oratories, opium markets and
traffickers’ convoys, without
harming the livelihoods of
struggling farmers. Poor
Afghans risk severe hunger
this year after bad harvests
and price increases, he said,
and should be assisted before
they are tempted to return to
poppy cultivation.

Clooney, Pitt



arrive in

Venice for film festival

@ VENICE, Italy

GEORGE CLOONEY host-
ed a charity event Tuesday night
to raise money for victims in Dar-
fur.

Clooney, who’s in Venice for
the premiere Wednesday at the
Venice Film Festival of the Coen
brothers’ film “Burn After Read-
ing,” swept past reporters as he
arrived for the fundraiser for his
Not On Our Watch charity,
according to Associated Press.

The event was expected to
raise $2 million, said Manuele
Malenotti, the executive director
of the Italian clothing company
Belstaff, which sponsored the
event.

Not On Our Watch has raised
more than $7 million to help vic-
tims both of the humanitarian cri-
sis in the Darfur region of Sudan
and the cyclone in Myanmar,
according to executive director

\lex Wagner.
The charity, which was started
ist year by Clooney, Brad Pitt
and some of their “Ocean’s Thir-
teen” colleagues, uses their
celebrity appeal to bring atten-
tion to human rights abuses, but it
isn’t so easy to get even two of
the founders together because of
filming and family demands,
Wagner conceded.

Pitt, who arrived in Venice ear-
lier with sons Maddox and Pax,
was expected at the event, but
hadn’t arrived by the time cock-
tail hour was over.

He also appear in the Coen
brothers’ film.

“Scheduling is very difficult.
Two of them happened to be in
Venice at the same time because
of the "Burn After Reading’ pre-
miere ... so there was a brain-
storming session,” Wagner said
of the planned joint appearance.

‘ Inside, Clooney was discussing
the issues and where the charity
puts its money at the fundraising
dinner on Venice’s Giudecca
island, where 200 industry insiders

and Italian VIPs were slated to*

attend; Wagner said.
One recent grant by the group

~ was $500,000 in March to keep

helicopters and airplanes flying
aid into Darfur region of Sudan
— topping off a $1 million dona-
tion a year earlier for the same
program.

“We sent out a press. release
one day saying we were on the
verge of closing it down and the
next day we had $500,000,” said
Bettina Luescher, a spokes-
woman for the World Food Pro-
gram at U.N. headquarters in
New York. “They shine the light
on the real emergencies and step
up where we really need help.”

Without that money, Luescher
said, the World Food Program
had been on the verge of shut-
ting down the air service to Dar-

fur, which brings 3,000 aid work- ,

ers a month to the stricken region.
The U.N. food charity fed 3.3 mil-
lion people there last month.

The air service is critical given
deteriorating security, which
makes road convoys vulnerable.
Nearly 100 World Food Program
food trucks have been hijacked
this year.

Clooney has spoken for sever-
al years about the crisis in Darfur,
where more than 200,000 people
have been killed and about -2.5
million people displaced in three
years of fighting between African
rebels and government troops
allied with Arab militia known as
the janjaweed.

He went on a U.N. technical
mission including Darfur and
neighboring Chad in January,
sharing his impressions with
reporters upon his return to draw
attention to the crisis.

Egypt septuplets stir
debate on fertility drugs

â„¢ ALEXANDRIA, Egypt

THE 27-YEAR-OLD woman and her
husband already had three children —
all girls. They badly wanted a boy, and
she had not conceived in five years, so
doctors gave her hormones, according to
the Associated Press. -

The startling result was healthy sep-
tuplets — four boys and three girls —
heralded by Egyptian doctors as a mir-
acle. But debate persists about the ethics
of fertility treatment in a nation where
medical oversight is lax, incubators and
neonatal respirators are rare, and many
families face pressure to have a son.

In addition, Egypt faces concerns
about overpopulation and cheap fertil-

"ity drugs could lead to a wave of multi-

ple births. President Hosni Mubarak
warned in June that growth is hindering
Egypt’s economy, saying Egypt’s popu-
lation of 79 million — mostly crammed
into the’3 percent of the country’s area
around the Nile River — will double by
2050.

For the mother, Ghazala Khamis, the
most pressing question now is how her
impoverished family is going to get by.

“T’m really scared,” she said, lying in
her hospital bed in this Mediterranean
coastal city. “We live in a mud hut with
only two rooms. I don’t know how we’re
going to afford 10 children now.”

Khamis’ husband Farag Mohammed
Ali, a 31-year-old farm laborer, can find
work only a few days a week, she said.
“T’m really worried about what the
future looks like.”

Much about the Aug. 16 birth, by
Caesarean section, was stunning. The
babies are large for a multiple birth,
weighing between 3 pounds 3 ounces
and 4 pounds 10 ounces each. The dura-
tion of.the pregnancy was also the

longest ever for septuplets — 34 weeks. ©

By contrast, the world’s first surviving
septuplets, born to the McCaughey fam-
ily in Iowa in 1997, came at 31 weeks
and the biggest baby weighed about the
same as Khamis’ smallest. There are
two other sets of surviving septuplets,
both born to Saudi women.

‘ Khamis’ doctors waited so long to

deliver the babies because Egypt has .

only a fewrrespifators for newborns, and
none were available. So for weeks, doc-
tors kept Khamis in Alexandria’s Shat-

Saturday, Aug. 16,

by Maternity University Hospital, let-
ting the fetuses develop enough that
their lungs could function on their own
after birth. But the wait also increased
the risk to the mother.

“We were simply blessed by God that
no complication happened ... If there
had been a complication, Ghazala would
have died,” Dr. Mahmoud Meleis, who
performed the Caesarean section, told,
The Associated Press.

After their birth, images on television
showed the boys — Mohammad,
Kareem, Bilal and Yassin — and girls —
Israa, Habiba and Do’a — lying side-
by-side in two makeshift incubators, oxy-
gen hoods covering their heads. Four
were then whisked by ambulance to two

- other hospitals because there were not

enough incubators at Shatby.

Except for the television images,
Khamis has not yet seen all her babies;
she has been able to hold and breast-
feed only the three at Shatby. Though
she was ready to leave days after the
birth, she remains hospitalized because
she has nowhere to stay in Alexandria, a
four-hour drive from her farming vil-
lage of Ezbat Emara.

Last week, baby girl Habiba and boys
Yassin and Mohammed were resting in
incubators at Shatby, tiny caps on their
heads — red for the boys and lime green

. for the girl. All were breathing on their

own, though Habiba and Yassin wore
protective eye patches.

Some Western medical ethicists have
questioned the use of fertility drugs by a
young woman who already has three
children, considering the risk of multiple
births. -

“This is a medical failure,” said Guido
Pennings, a professor of- fertility ethics at
the University of Ghent in Belgium.
“You cannot take this risk because of
the complications to the mother and the
babies.”

Pennings, who was not involved in the
case, said Khamis’ doctors should have
been more careful in prescribing fertili-
ty drugs to a woman who.had already
demonstrated she was capable of con-
ceiving.

“Twenty-seven with three children:
That woman is fertile,” he said. “Even if
she had a period of infertility, that’s an
indication that you should be careful
when you stimulate” ovulation.

OBSTACLE |

Hurricane recovery
confronts low literacy rate

m NEW ORLEANS

Marsha Williams had always
hesitated when mail arrived
from the government. After
Hurricane Katrina, she began

to fear the letters, according to

the Associated Press.

One warned that her apart-

ment building could be shut
down because of unrepaired
storm damage. There were legal
notices and forms. What did
they all mean? At age 51,
Williams was embarrassed she
could not read much more than
her own name and address.

Three years after Katrina,
residents of New Orleans are
still buried in a blizzard of gov-
ernment paperwork. But for
thousands of storm victims
seeking federal aid, the chal-
lenge is made more difficult by
a little-known obstacle: More
than 40 percent of the city’s
adults lack the literacy skills to
comprehend basic government
forms. And recovery programs
have done little to ease the bur-
den.

“I didn’t get a lot of school
when I was a child. I guess they
didn’t have enough to go
around,” said Williams, who is
-learning to read ina YMCA
adult-education course.

Rachel B. Nicolosi, program
director for the Literacy
Alliance of Greater New
Orleans, estimates that as many
as 100,000 people from New
Orleans may have had assis-
tance delayed, or they never
applied for help at all, because
they could not read the docu-
ments.

“It’s a paramount issue. -The
rules are almost indecipherable
for everyone,” said Davida Fin-
ger, a staff attorney for Loyola
University’s New Orleans Col-
lege of Law, which has helped
1,000 people seek rebuilding
aid, nearly all of whom had
trouble understanding the

work to his job. Over-
shadowed by bureau-
cratic failures and.
slow-moving rebuild- .
ing programs, there is
a backstory to New
Orleans’ Katrina recov-
ery rooted in a broken
school system and the
legacy of segregation:
as many as 70 percent
of adults read below a
ninth-grade level and
over 40 percent cannot
comprehend basic
government forms.

forms.
Katrina destroyed 27 adult
literacy programs when it came

ashore in 2005. Only 13 pro-

grams survived, so Nicolosi and
others have asked for govern-

/ment rebuilding agencies to

write aid forms in a “plain lan-
guage” format that is already
used for some federal health
and safety documents.

But some government offi-
cials say too much plain lan-
guage can leave out vital infor-
mation.

“I concede the point that
those who are functionally illit-
erate, they would have chal-
lenges with any form,” said Bri-
an Sullivan, a spokesman for
the Department of Housing and
Urban Development. He said
the agency has trained all of its
37 staff members in New

Orleans to help “those with lit-

eracy disabilities.”

The National Adult Literacy
Survey indicates that 25 percent
of U.S. adults read at the lowest
functional level, medning, for
example, that they can locate
an expiration date on a driver’s
license but cannot fill out most
motor-vehicle forms.

In New Orleans, that figure is
44 percent, according to the sur-
vey, which is performed every
decade and was last conducted
in 2003.

The cornerstone of neigh-
borhood rebuilding efforts is
the $10.3 billion Road Home
program, which asks partici-
pants to review dozens of doc-
uments and sign 18 final legal
papers before aid is approved.

One paragraph reads:
“Homeowner(s) agree(s) to the
filing of certain covenants to
run with the land on the prop-
erty for which this Grant is
awarded requiring generally as
follows: flood insurance to be

maintained if located in Special.

Adirondack museum looks at legacy of opera soprano

@ BOLTON LANDING, N.Y.

SHE HAD the voice of an
angel and used it to negotiate
fast notes with the skill of a
trained gymnast.

After retiring officially from
the opera world, legendary
soprano Marcella Sembrich
taught music lessons on her
lakefront property tucked away
among towering white pines in
the foothills of New York’s
Adirondack Mountains.

Students came to her from
the Curtis Institute in Philadel-
phia and The Juilliard School.

Her teaching studio, a small
pink stucco house with huge
windows: overlooking ‘Lake
George, is now home to a
museum established by her
daughter-in-law, Juliette de
Coppet Stengel, two io after
she died in 1935.

It is one of only a handful of
museums in the U.S. dedicat-
ed to opera and doubles as a

venue for intimate music per-

formances, This year, which
marks Sembrich’s 150th birth-
day and the 100th anniversary
of her farewell performance at
the New York Metropolitan
Opera, the Marcella Sembrich
Memorial Association will host
concerts, lectures and film
showings in her honor.
Recordings of Sembrich’s
voice waft through the rooms of
the 1,400-square-foot teaching
cottage. Photographs and opera
programs combine to create a
sort of time capsule for visitors.

On display is the costume from

when she played Mimi in “La
Boheme,” along with letters
between Sembrich and such
luminaries as Mark Twain,
Thomas Edison and Teddy
Roosevelt. ’

“It’s a picture of the golden
age of song,” said Richard War-
go, the museum’s artistic direc-
tor and composer-in-residence.

‘Sembrich was born Prakse-
da Marcelina Kochanska in a
small Polish village in 1858. As

a child, she began studying
voice, piano and violin. She
took lessons with William Sten-

* gel — whom she ended up mar-

rying.

At 19, using a modified ver-

sion of her mother’s maiden
name as her stage name, she
made her debut in Italian
opera in Athens, Greece,
singing “I Puritani.”

Although she was an accom-
plished pianist and violinist,
she was renowned for her
voice.

When Sembrich performed
for Franz Liszt, singing and
playing the violin and piano,
the composer is said to have
told her, “Sing, sing for the
world. You have the voice of
an angel.”

The museum sits on 4.5
acres of winding trails, offer-
ing scenic views of the Adiron-
dacks from its yearly opening
in June to its closingin Sep-

tember. As a performance

venne, it provides a small

chamber setting that seats
between 50 and 70 people.
Guest musicians perform on
Sembrich’s original 1905 Stein-
way piano.

Sembrich came to the
upstate New York village after
the start of World War I pre-
vented her from.returning to
her summer home in the Swiss
Alps. She first bought a home
farther up in the Adirondacks
in Lake Placid.

In Bolton Landing some
years later, she helped estab-
lish somewhat of an artists
colony for singers. The home

_of Flonzaley quartet founder

Edward J. de Coppet, daugh-
ter-in-law Juliette’s father, was
nearby, and fellow opera
singer Louise Homer owned a
summer home in the neigh-
boring village of Lake George.

Sembrich’ s estate, Bay View,
once occupied a sprawling 14
acres but the house is now
gone and. only the studios
remain.

Israel to display dead sea

scrolls on the internet

lm By ETHAN BRONNER
JERUSALEM

In a crowded laboratory
painted in gray and cooled like

-a cave, half a dozen specialists

embarked this week on a his-
toric undertaking: digitally pho-
tographing every one of the
thousands of fragments of the

“Dead Sea Scrolls with the aim



among the most sought-after
and examined documents on
Earth — available to all on the
Internet, reports the New York
Times News Service.

Equipped with high-powered
cameras with resolution and
clarity many times greater than
those of conventional models,
and with lights that emit nei-
ther heat nor. ultraviolet rays,
the scientists and technicians
are uncovering previously illeg-
ible sections and letters of the
scrolls, discoveries that could
have significant scholarly
impact.

The 2,000-year-old scrolls,
found in the late 1940s in caves

near the Dead Sea east of |

Jerusalem, contain the earliest
known copies of every book of
the Hebrew Bible (missing only
the Book of Esther), as well as
apocryphal texts and descrip-

- tions of rituals of a Jewish sect

at the time of Jesus. The texts,
most of them on parchment but
some on papyrus, date from the
third century B.C. to the first
century A.D.

Only a handful of the scrolls
exist in large pieces, with sever-

ie

take precise photographs to watch



al on permanent exhibit at the
Israel Museum here in its dimly
lighted Shrine of the Book.
Most of what was found is sep-
arated into 15,000 fragments
that make up about 900 docu-
ments, fueling a longstanding
debate on how to order the

fragments as well as the origin:

and meaning of what is written
on them.

The scrolls’ contemporary
shistory has been something of a
tortured one because they are
among the most important
sources of information on Jew-
ish and early Christian life.
After their initial discovery they
were tightly held by.a small cir-
cle of scholars. In the last 20
years, access has improved sig-
nificantly, and in 2001 they were
published in their entirety. But
debate over them seems only
to grow. :

Scholars continually ask the
Israel Antiquities Authority, the
custodian of the scrolls, for
access to them, and museums

around the world seek to dis-
play them. Next month,the Jew-
ish Museum of New York will
scrolls.

The keepers of the scrolls,
people like Pnina Shor, head of
the conservation department of
the antiquities authority, are
delighted by the intense interest
but.say that each time a scroll is
exposed to light, humidity and
heat, it deteriorates. She says
even without such exposure
there is deterioration because
of the ink used on some of the
scrolls as well as the residue
from the Scotch tape used by
the 1950s scholars in piecing
together fragments.

The entire collection was
photographed only once before
— in the 1950s using infrared
— and those photographs are
stored in a climate-controlled
room because they show things
already lost from some of the
scrolls. The old infrared pictures
will also be scanned in the new
digital effort.

“The project began as a con-
servation necessity,” Shor
explained.

“We wanted to monitor the
deterioration of the scrolls and
realized we needed to take pre-
cise photographs to watch the
process.

“That’s when we decided to
do a comprehensive set of pho-
tos, both in color and infrared,
to monitor selectively what is
happening. We realized then
that we could make the entire
set of pictures available online
to everyone, meaning that any-
one will be able to see the
scrolls in the kind of detail that
no one has until now.”

The process will probably
take one to two years — more
before it is available online —
and is being led by Greg Bear-
man, who retired from the Jet
Propulsion Laboratory. Data
collection is directed by Simon
Tanner of Kings College Lon-
don.

Jonathan Ben-Dov, a profes-
sor of biblical studies at the Uni-
versity of Haifa, is taking part in
the digitalization project.
Watching the technicians gin-
gerly move a fragment into
place for a photograph, he said
that it had long been very diffi-
cult for senior scholars to get
access.

Once this project is complet-
ed, he said with wonder, “every
undergraduate will be able to
have a detailed look at them
from numerous angles.”

| Lifting the veil on AIDS

in a Mexican prison

â„¢ By MARC LACEY
MEXICO CITY

Officially, there is no sex
among the male inmates at the
overcrowded Oriente prison on
the outskirts of the Mexican
capital, according to the New
York Times News Service. The
only sexual relations in the male
portion of the facility, adminis-
trators say, occur in the special
rooms set aside for male-female
conjugal visits.

But talk to the prisoners, a
group of 11,300 convicted rob-
bers, murderers and others who
have run afoul of the law, and
another reality emerges.

“We are a population of men,
and it’s normal for men to have
sex with whoever is around,”
said Guillermo, 32, a prisoner
and peer educator who has
HIV, the virus that causes
AIDS. “There are some who
don’t want to see it.”

Even though scientific sur-
veys of AIDS rates in Mexican
prisons do not exist, the myths
associated with the epidemic
are pronounced among prison-
ers, and the sex that takes place
is frequently unsafe, advocates
say. The risk is significant
enough that an American orga-
nization, Population Services

International, has set up an

AIDS awareness program
inside this and four other Mex-
ican lockups. Facts about the
disease are so scarce, said Ricar-
do Roman Vergara, who helps
run the training sessions, that
some inmates think HIV is
spread by mosquitoes, kisses or
shared toothbrushes.

Just getting access to the pris-
ons was no easy feat, since
prison authorities are hesitant
to acknowledge a problem.
Official figures put the number
of HIV-positive inmates in the
capital’s prisons at 62, six of
them women and the rest men.
But no widespread testing of
the tens of thousands of inmates
takes place, so the figure is con-
sidered by experts to substan-
tially understate the danger.

‘In the case of the Reclusorio
Preventivo Oriente, a rough
place that is one of the largest



“We area
population of
men, and it’s
normal for men
to have sex with
whoever is
around.”

Guillermo

prisons in Latin America, the
warden, Ruben Fernandez
Lima, allowed the awareness
sessions here despite playing
down the extent of infections.
“T don’t know the level of
HIV in this prison,” he said dur-
ing a tour that coincided with
the 17th International AIDS
Conference, which was held in
Mexico City in early August. “I
think it’s minimal. It’s almost
nothing.” —.
But the chances of acquiring
the virus inside prison walls are
many, aS a group of prisoners,
all dressed in khaki, learned this

. month during an education ses-

sion in a community room here.
There are the syringes used
to inject drugs, another activity
that prison authorities play
down. There are the needles
that prison tattoo artists employ
to mark up the inmates or
pierce their bodies. Then there
is sex that occurs in and out of
the designated “visita intima”
areas, some of it with prosti-
tutes, both male and female,
who ply their trade within the
prison walls. ’
Indeed, all sorts of supposed-
ly banned activities take place in
Mexico’s prisons, much of it,
experts say, the result of bribes
being slipped to underpaid
guards. During the tour, a pris-
oner was observed talking on a
cell phone, which is banned in
penitentiaries nationwide
because of a history of crime
bosses continuing their illegal
activities while in detention.
Oriente frequently finds itself
on the front pages of Mexico’s
newspapers. It was where Jose
Luis Calva Zepeda, a presumed



serial killer who ate his victims
and then wrote poems about
them, was sent last year. The
so-called Cannibal Poet was lat-
er found hanged in his cell. The
suspicious circumstances of the
death prompted a shakeup in
the prison leadership.

Then in July, a notorious drug
trafficker managed to slip out
of the prison, spurring an inves-
tigation into whether prison
authorities, including the war-
den, might have given lim priv-
ileges that aided his escape.

The trafficker, Luis Gonzaga
Castro Flores, was apparently
allowed to have several women
pay him conjugal visits. He used
one such liaison to change

clothes in the visitors’ area and.

make his escape, authorities say.

The tightest ship appeared to
be run in a part of the prison
set aside for drug addicts. To
wean them off their addictions,
mostly to crack cocaine, prison
officials require the addicts to
engage in military-style march-
es and ban them from having
outside visitors, who are some-
times of the source of contra-
band. Visitors to the prison are
told not to wear khaki, so as not
to be mistaken for a prisoner.
Upon entering, visitors are giv-

en a quick body search, and a:

special ink is put on their hands
to differentiate them from
inmates.

Guillermo, a convicted rob-
ber who for his safety asked that
his last name not be published,
said most of those he counsels
in the prison are hesitant to dis-
cuss their sexual partners when
he first approaches them. But

because he is open about the -

fact that he is bisexual, he said
prisoners soon begin talking.
“In a place like this, the vul-
nerability of getting HIV is very
high,” he said. One of those
who praised the outreach effort
was Hector, 32, who was
halfway through a six-year sen-
tence for robbery. He has a wife
and children on the outside and
male. sexual partners on the
inside. “I don’t know if I have it
or not,” he said of the virus. “I
do it without condoms, but I’m
learning now that I shouldn’t.”

Unionist: ‘Let
chips fall where
they may’ over
illegal actions

@ By NEIL HARTNELL
Tribune Business
Editor "

A LEADING trade
unionist has urged that pub-
lic sector unions “be held to
the same standard” as their
private sector counterparts
when it came to illegal indus-

trial actions, adding: “Let the
chips fall where they may”.

Huedley Moss, the chief
negotiator/adviser to the
Bahamas Beverage and
Water Distributors Union,
told Tribune Business that
there appeared to be a dou-
ble standard in play when it
came to punishing union
members for engaging in ille-

gal industrial actions, with.

public sector unions seem-
ingly getting off ‘scot free’

‘unlike their private sector

counterparts.

Advocating that “there
must be consequences for
illegal industrial actions”, Mr
Moss argued that the
Bahamas did not need any
new laws to deal with such
- situations, but rather must
“enforce the laws that are
there”.

Acknowledging that in his
opinion the recent actions by
. the two Bahamas Telecom-
munications Company
(BTC) unions were an illegal
industrial strike, Mr Moss
said: “Successive govern-
ments seem impotent, to do
anything about public sector

unions not being held to the.

same high standards as pri-
vate. sector unions. ' ,

“The laws that we have on
the books in the Industrial
Relations Act, the laws con-
tained in the Employment
Act, aren’t just for one cate-
gory of workers. They are
for all workers in. both the
' public sector and the private
sector.”

_ Mr Moss added: “One of

the weaknesses we have in
the system in this country is

that over the years it seems © i.
i chain was “not completely out

to me that politicians were
reluctant to chastise unions
that engaged 1 in illegal indus-
trial actions.

“They have done that for |

selfish reasons, mainly that
they were looking out for
their own political careers.
They have a duty to be con-
cerned about the needs of all

Bahamians, not just one cat- }

egory of Bahamians.

“The same standards that
apply to private sector
unions must be applied to

BAHAMAS Supermarkets

chief executive yesterday said .

he was targeting 2010 as the

year in which the company -

would surpass previous annual
profit records of $7-$8 million,

‘with “failure not an option” in

efforts to get the 12-store

i. supermarket chain “back on

Stephen Boyle told Tribune
Business that the City Markets

problems that have plagued
the company over its past two
financial years, but it was now
focused on fiscal 2009 and
“working on delivery of a very
detailed business plan”.

He explained that while City.
Markets was generating posi-

tive cash flow from its opera-

tions, much of this. was being .

eaten up by costs associated
with completing the fiscal 2007
and 2008 audits, and rebuilding
the chain’s back office and

‘accounting systems.

“Are we completely out of
the woods [on cash flow]? No.
Are we generating cash flow
from operations? Yes,” Mr
Boyle told Tribune Business.

“Unfortunately, the remedi-
ation we had to undertake to
bring 2007 to a close and get
2008 up to date is expensive.

“The cash generated from
operations is being invested on
getting reporting back on track,

and getting the finance and . |

accountiny: departments back
on track. You can’t run a busi-
ness without numbers, which
is why it’s an investment, not
an expense. This is why it’s
consuming all our cash.”

Analysts and shareholders |

largely reacted with disap-
pointment to the publication
of Bahamas Supermarkets’
long-awaited 2007 financials,
which were reported by Tri-
bune Business yesterday.

THE attorney representing
former Pioneer Shipping
employees has applied to the
Supreme Court for permission
to file an action against the
company’s owners in the US,
after it allegedly dissolved and
liquidated its Bahamian assets.

Obie Ferguson, who repre-
sents the terminated employ-
ees, told Tribune Business he
had made an application for
leave to the Bahamian
Supreme Court so that that he

could file a writ of summons .

outside the jurisdiction - in this
case, in Florida.

This essentially means that
Mr Ferguson will be going
after the company’s US assets,
since all the Bahamian assets
have allegedly been taken out

-of the jurisdiction.

Mr Ferguson said in asking

age. ;
Mr Ferguson explained that
the Supreme Court applica-
tion process will take several
weeks. If it is successful, he
will then file the necessary
documents in Florida, and Pio-
neer executives could be
ordered to appear in Nassau
because the events complained
of occurred in this jurisdiction.

Pioneer Shipping’s business
was taken over by a partner-

- ship between Laser Interna-

tional Freight Transport and

the Nassau-based Mailboat —

Company earlier this summer.
The employees are upset at
the way their termination was
handled, given the fact that
they were not-given any sev-
erance packages and lost much
needed medical coverage.
The employees said that

Susan Glinton, a buyer for Kelly’s Home Centre, said
sales were going very well with their back-to-school

items.

She said business appears comparable: to last year’s

back-to-school rush, although she added that she had not

seen all the figures as yet. Ms Glinton said sales were
likely to continue as the final week of summer comes to

an end.

“Our sales have been steady” she said.

Arnelle Cooper, the spokeswoman for Solomon’s

SuperCentre said: “ Sales have been going very well. We

are aware of what hasbeen going on in the economy, and
the fact that. a number of persons have lost their jobs and
are financially challenged. We have tried to accommo-
date them by securing items. at the best prices and quality
that are affordable.”

She said that while sales appear to be on track to match
last year, the determing factor will be this weekend, in

“This weekend will be probably be our biggest eek

BAHAMIAN landscaping
companies are planning to organ-
ise themselves into a Bahamian
Landscape Association (BLA),

Tribune Business was told yes-

terday, in an effort to raise service
standards and increase career
opportunities. :

Landscaping companies and
professionals have been invited
to participate in an information
session on the benefits of estab-
lishing such an association on
September 4, at the Atlantis Con-
vention Centre.

The association organisers said
in a letter to industry profession-
als that they will be seeking to
align themselves with the Florida
Nursery, Growers & Landscape
Association (FNGLA), in what

will be an industry milestone.

_ “It was determined that the
FNGLA was more appropriate
for the BLA, because its respon-
sibility covers the Florida region,
which has many similarities with
the region of the Bahamas,” the
letter said.

“Understanding our quest to
raise the standard of professional
services in the Bahamas, the
FNGLA has fully supported and
ratified the BLA as an official
Allied Member, with future con-
siderations to upgrade its status as
a chapter. Thus all of the
resources that were once only
obtainable in Florida will be avail-
able here in the Bahamas to all
those who choose to become a
member of the BLA.”

The organisets further indicat-
ed that once the BLA is official-
ly established, with assistance

FNGLA-approved industry part-
ners, certification courses will be
offered to all interested parties.

“All certification courses
offered by the BLA will continu-
ally be available here in the
Bahamas. The establishment of
the BLA with internationally
recognised certification will be a
mile stone in our industry,” the
letter said.

It further maintained that cer-
tification and continued educa-
tional units (CEU) will strength-
en the ongoing dedication the
BLA membership had in contin-
ued education, and stand as a tes-
tament to the individuals and
businesses that attain certifica-
tion.

“Individuals and businesses
alike may boast and advertise
these accomplishments across the
Bahamas, Caribbean and the
USA,” the letter added.

Over the years, the letter said
the industry had exploded, with
new landscape companies offer-
ing a variely of services to cus-
tomers.- ranging from landscape
installation, maintenance, pest

management, irrigation services,

arboriculture and nurseries.
“For many years we have all

at some point endeavored to

improve our business and profes-
siorial status. Many of us have
explored and pursued avenues to
achieve this by way of attending
seminars, short courses in our
individual fields and trying to
align ourselves with organisations
or associations that have the
resources to help us achieve our
goals,” the letter said.
~ “As professionals in the indus-
try, we will all be a part of this
historic international project that
will afford us the ability to raise
the standards of the industry, and
cause our. customers to develop a
greater sense of trust in our abil-
ity to offer professional and qual-
ity services.”
The letter added that the asso-
ciation can begin to strengthen

the integrity of the industry and .

create a means to attract well-
educated high school graduates,
secondary school graduates and

the growth of the industry.

“This will also provide alterna-
tive career options and will create
a pool of talent for businesses to
choose from,” it said.

The letter also explained that

‘the Bahamas Technical and
Vocational Institute (BT VI) and

the Daytona Beach Community
College have agreed to support
the move, facilitating the train-
ing of existing professionals and
all new interested parties by way
of the BTVI training facility, long-
term instructors and marketing.

The BTVI & Ministry of Edu-
cation have agreed to support the
BLA, and are exploring ways to
provide continued education to
students who may wish to go on
to COB or other colleges to pur-
sue higher levels of education in
the green industry, like a BA in
Landscape Design or a Masters in
Horticulture. ;

Initial training for certifications
will be done in conjunction with
FNGLA -ertified instructors and
professionals from the Bahamas,
who will also become certified
instructors. :

Mrs Thompson pointed to
the fact that electricity in the
Bahamas now cost around
$0.45 per kilowatt hour, a cost
that had gone into orbit com-
pared to other major Western
Hemisphere cities such as
Vancouver, where energy cost
$0.0655 per kilowatt hour.

The 2008-2009 Budget tax
increases could not have come
at a worse time for many lux-
ury goods and other retailers.
Apart from the increased
operating costs, they are also
having to grapple with a
reduction in tourist numbers
and per capita spending, which
has negatively impacted rev-
enue, and a rise in costs asso-
ciated with purchasing Euro-
pean brands.

The latter phenomenon has
occurred because of the euro’s
relative strength against the
US dollar, as Bahamian retail-
ers have to pay for European-
made brands with euros. The
appreciating euro means these
prices have increased.

Mrs Thompson said: “We’re

trying to adjust our operations,
and are taking all the steps we
can. Our margins are down
below what is likely to make a
profit. ;

“We have to cut overheads

to a minimum and operate in a
very conservative way, giving
good value for money. If your
sales and prices don’t give you
the margins you need, you'll
go out of business. When sales
drop, so do margins.”

Mrs Thompson said the 5

"per cent duty increase on all

leather goods imported into

the Bahamas was not levied -°

just on the price of the prod-
uct, but also on the freight
costs - adding to the ‘already
high cost of shipping.

Many Bay Street retailers
are worried that the Budget
tax increases, a portion of
which they are likely to pass
on to consumers, will make
them even more uncompeti-
tive when compared to rival
retailers in Florida, the
Caribbean and on the cruise
ships. Many rely on the tourist
trade for 80 per cent and
upwards of their sales.

that while the Bahamian taxa-

for many years, it was
“unique” in basing its tariff

than just the product price.

“Every retailer right now on

Thompson told Tribune Busi-

Unionist: ‘Let chips
fall where they may’
over illegal actions

FROM page one

public sector unions, and the powers that be need to step turning i
a deaf ear and stop pandering to union leaders.” i
BTC union leaders have defended their actions, and those of :
their members, and said they were not participating in an illegal :
industrial action. i
Yet Mr Moss said of the BTC strike’s impact: “I think it is :
awful, it is hurting the country and let the chips fall where they ;
ma i
There must be consequences for illegal industrial actions. :
They walk off the job, shut things down and there are no conse- ;
quences. The powers that be don’t have the wherewithal to take
action. . ;
“The private sector union leaders know thete are consequences :
for these types of things. It is hurting the country, sending the ;
wrong example to kids and sending the wrong message to current ;
and future investors.” i
Mr Moss said that under existing Bahamian law, ifa :
union engaged in illegal industrial action, an employer was
free to treat all union members that participated “as they see
fit”. i
For example, under the Employment Act’s provisions, an
employer could summarily dismiss workers for taking part in }
an illegal industrial action. If they were summarily dismissed, the
workers would not be entitled to receive severance pay. :
Such laws, Mr Moss suggested, could be used to “send a good:
message” that, if transmitted often enough, would deter workers a
from engaging in illegal industrial actions. i
“We don’t need any: new laws,” he told Tribune Business, dis- :
agreeing with the Bahamas Employers Confederation’s (BECon) :
_president, Brian Nutt, on that issue. i
“We have laws on:the books, and all we have to dois enforce }
the laws that are there. If all unions are not held to the same stan-_ :
dard, the Bahamas can expect many more illegal industrial :
actions.” i
Mr Moss also disagreed with Mr Nutt over the recent uludical :
action taken by members of the Bahamas Manufacturing and :
Allied Workers Union (BIMAWU), arguing that it was legalas :
defined by Chapter 321 of the Industrial Relations Act. i
He added that this was because the union had filed its dispute:
with the Department of Labour, and the minister responsible had:
supervised a strike vote by the union’s members. . i

proposals from established
renewable energy providers in
four key fields - solar, wind,
hydrokinetic (wave and ‘ocean)
and biomass.

“The RFP document says

we’re going to look at a maxi-”

mum of 10 per cent of genera-
tion capacity on any island”
coming from renewable ener-
gy sources, Mr Elliott told Tri-
bune Business.

“We've got a whole lot of
interest, both locally and inter-
nationally. We think we’re
going to get a lot of responses
in that regard. We look forward
to receiving the responses by
September 12 and evaluating
them.”

Mr Elliott said the Bahamas
could not afford to get left
behind as the world moved
towards renewable energy and
away from more traditional
forms of electricity generation,
such as coal, oil and nuclear.

’ “As far as the Bahamas is
concerned, the world is mov-
ing on towards renewable ener-
gy,” Mr Elliott said. “We have
to be a player, no matter how
minimal it is.

“Tf there is a shift away from
traditional forms of generation,
we can’t be the last person in
line. We have to be a player in
that regard.”

He added that it was “very

important” that the Bahamas:

embrace the’shift towards
renewable energy, especially

given the impact soaring oil '
-prices were having on BEC’s

fuel costs and financial position
and, in turn, the fuel surcharge
and electricity bills faced by
business and. residential con-
sumers.

Both BEC’s chairman, Fred
Gottlieb, and general manag-
er, Kevin Basden, were fully
behind the shift towards sus-

tainable power generation, Mr

Elliott said.

“Our chairman and general
manager are extremely com-
mitted to the process. They are
both very interested in seeing it
go, and expect within the next
year to see some real move-
ment on it,” Mr Elliott said.

renewable power
generation goals

proposals, involving the gener-
ation of energy from waste, are
likely to be submitted in
response to the BEC RFP,
along. with submissions on solar,
wind and hydrokinetic genera-
tion.

Meanwhile, the Bahamas
Hotel Association (BHA) has
thrown its backing behind the

AES Corporation proposal to.

supply BEC with liquefied nat-
ural gas (LNG) from its Ocean
Cay terminal, believing this
could result in a 15-30 per cent
reduction in fuel surcharge

_ costs for business and residen-

tial customers.

In an August 1, 2008, letter to
Prime Minister Hubert Ingra-
ham, the BHA president, Rus-
sell Miller, said that based upon
the presentation given by AES,
“we understand that this
arrangement could result in the
range of a 15 per cent to 30 per
cent reduction in fuel surcharge
costs to BEC customers on
New Providence, based upon
current market conditions. ‘The
savings would be considerable”.

Given that “the escalation of
energy costs has created
tremendous economic pres-
sures on businesses and resi-
dents”, Mr Miller said the BHA
endorsed the AES project “in
principle”.- ~

While the BHA was unable

to determine the environmental ,
impact of the proposed AES

project, Mr Miller pointed out
that responsibility in this area
lay with the Government and
developer..

“However, it is clear that the
conversion to natural gas by
BEC will significantly reduce
our present level of carbon
emissions,” Mr Miller said.

“We are confident that any
environmental concerns with
this proposal can be adequate-
ly addressed, and that the ben-
efits to businesses and residents
far outweigh any potential lim-












Overall Responsibilities

ited impact,

“Prime Minister, we should
note that outside of payroll
costs, energy costs are the
largest expense to hotel opera-
tors.”

Mr Miller added: “The AES

LNG project must be viewed
as part of a broader strategy by
the Bahamas aimed at making -
us more energy efficient, chang-
ing our consumption habits and
aggressively pursuing alterna-
tive renewable energy sources.
Only then will we realise sig-
nificant savings.”

AES previously told Tribune
Business that BEC could save

* between $1.4 billion to $4 bil-+

lion in fuel costs, or between
$80 million-$210 million per
annum, depending on future oil
prices.

THE TRIBUNE

City Markets chief targets

FROM page one

far from smooth, with City

Markets suffering an $8 mil-
lion-plus swing into the red and
a $189,130 loss. There was zero
cash on the company’s balance
sheet at 2007 year-end.

The 2006 year-end had seen
$9.234 million left in cash on
the balance sheet, but Mr
Boyle‘said the last two finan-
cial years had seen some $18
million in cash flow out of
Bahamas Supermarkets.

That figure included some
$5.8 million in dividends until
those payments were suspend-
ed by the Bahamas Supermar-
kets Board.

“The total across the two
years of cash going out of the
business is $18 million,” Mr
Boyle said. “There was an
awful lot spend on capital
expenditure, leasehold
improvements, dividends and
the Cable Beach store. There
was an awful. lot of outflow.”

Looking to put the past
behind City Markets and focus
on the future, Mr Boyle said:
“What I have agreed as chief
executive is to complete the
first quarter [2009], and based
on the first quarter results,
reforecast for the year. That’s
what I’ll be held accountable
for. !

“T’m positive the work done

in the last part of 2008 and cur-

rently will be very good for the
future. I’m certainly looking
during my tenure to pass pre-
vious levels of profitability.
“My initial tenure is for two
years, so that tells you by 2010

we'll hopefully have passed the

-levels achieved in the past.”

Several analysts and capital
markets sources yesterday
questioned the sale and lease-
back agreement, involving $3
million worth of store improve-
ments and equipment, that
Bahamas Supermarkets had
signed with its employees’ pen-
sion plan.

A number questioned
whether this was effectively
using employee pension assets
to provide the supermarket

-chain with working capital,

something several said was not
done in countries with effec-
tive pension legislation - unlike
the Bahamas.
However, Mr Boyle said:
“The bottom line is this. The
pension fund was earning 3 per
cent on those funds. It’s now

earning 9 per cent. We’ve
tripled the rate of return for |

the pension fund.
“While there may be some
individuals who are concerned,
there is nothing to be con-
cerned about. We are going to
generate additional funds for
the pension fund, and as the
stakeholders are all our

‘employees, they will benefit,

too./ .

“The [pension fund’s] cash

has not been utilised properly
in the past. We believe we have
done a good thing, and the
right thing, for the employees
and their future.

“Our head office is owned
by the plan. It isn’t uncommon,
its is custom and practice, for

‘the company to lease assets

from it.”

At year-end 2007, Bahamas
Supermarkets saw a more than
doubling in accounts payables
to $13.654 million - a 133.7 per
cent increase - compared to
$5.841 million at the previous

_ year end. Inventories, too, had

risen to $14.256 million com-
pared to $12.927 million the
year before.

- Mr Boyle said City Markets
was focused on better manag-

ing its inventory, using prac-.

tices such as shipping from the
US crates containing six weeks’
worth of product for two items,
rather than one crate contain-
ing 12 weeks’ worth of one
product. eh
“Our inventory turns at
year-end 2008 were as good as,
or better, than international
standards,” Mr Boyle said.

“One of the first exercises I
_ did after becoming chief exec-

utive in May 2008 was to actu-
ally look at our inventory lev-
els, put some international
benchmarks against them and
work to reduce the level we
have. Our accounts payable is
back to where it should be.”

Mr Boyle said the fiscal 2008 .

audit of Bahamas Supermar-
kets was currently underway,

-and the company intended to

meet the statutory reporting
deadline of October 23.
_ “While there has to be learn-

ing from the past, my job is to”

focus on the future and ensure
fiscal 2009 is where it needs to
be,” Mr Boyle said. “All of my
planning has been for 2009.
“The 2008 audit is underway.
It’s been all-consiming. If you
can imagine the amount of

- 2010 for record profits |

effort from May, when I took
over, to close 2007 and get
2008 to the point where it can
be audited, the effort has been
all-consuming.

“We've very focused on clos-
ing 2008, how it is, what the
results are and getting the com-
pany back to where it needs to
be.

“Failure is not an option, and
we are proceeding against a
very detailed business plan that
we have put in place. We are
working on delivery.”

As revealed previously by
Tribune Business, the main
factor behind the 2007 audit
delay was that KPMG was.
forced to.manually verify hun-
dreds of point-of-sale transac- .

. tions after no replacement

accounting systems were
installed to replace those pro-
vided by Winn-Dixie, whose
Transition Services Agreement
was ended early.

The problems at Bahamas
Supermarkets led Royal Bank °
of Canada, which provided $24
million in debt financing to
finance BSL Holdings’ $54 mil-
lion purchase of a majority 78
per cent stake in the compa-
ny, to work more closely with
the borrower in sorting out the
company’s problems.

The delay in publishing
Bahamas Supermarkets’ annu-
al results put BSL Holdings in
breach of one: of its banking
covenants.

A trouble-shooting team of
accountants has since gone into
Bahamas Supermarkets to
work through the accounts
payable and inventory issues.

Tensions rising
between Port
chair and St
George estate

FROM page one

Port Group Ltd and the
GBPA are basing their case
on the grounds that Mr Smith
acted as their outside coun-
sel for 23 years, and there-
fore has an alleged “conflict
of interest”.

Both companies are seek-
ing an order that Mr Smith
or any Callender’s & Co
attorney be barred from act-
ing as the St George estate’s
attorney.

In response, attorneys for
Mr Smith and Callender’s &
Co have filed separate sum-
monses asking for the action
to be struck out, on the
grounds that it “discloses no
reasonable cause of action”,

“is scandalous, frivalous and :

vexatious”, and could inter-
fere with a fair trial.

Mr Smith is being repre-
sented by Bostwick & Bost-
wick, and Callender’s & Co

by Harry B Sands, Lobosky .

& Company.

Carey Leonard, the GBPA
and Port Group Ltd general
counsel, in an affidavit in sup-
port of the Port’s action,
alleged: “In the course of its
engagement [as GBPA and
Port Group Ltd], the defen-
dant would have been privy
to all sorts of general and
specific information in rela-
tion to the inner workings of
the plaintiffs and their deal-
ings with third parties, so as
to properly carry out its advi-
sory functions as well as its
participation in litigation on
the plaintiffs’ behalf.”

As a result, Mr Leonard
alleged that Mr Smith and
Callender’s & Co were likely
to have received information
“capable of being used to the

detriment” of the GBPA and -

Port Group Ltd in the own-
ership dispute, in which they
had been named as defen-
dants by the St George
estate.

Mr Leonard alleged that
the ownership litigation ini-
tiated by the St George estate
was filed two days after Mr
Smith and Callender’s & Co
resigned as outside counsel,
something he described as
creating a “conflict”.

\

The resumption of the
GBPA and Port Group Ltd’s
legal action to have Mr Smith
removed from the litigation
is understood to have further
exacerbated tensions between
the St George estate and Mr
Christiansen.

Sources close to the situa-
tion have told Tribune Busi-
ness that the St George estate
initially thought Mr Chris-
tiansen would safeguard their
interests, but since his
appointment they perceive
him as acting in the interests
of the-Hayward side and
Roddie Fleming.

The latter is attempting to
acquire the GBPA and Port
Group Ltd, and has an option
to acquire the Hayward fam-
ily trust’s interest in the two

companies for $100 million.
The St George estate, though,

is adamant that it will not sell .

to Fleming.

Among the issues that have
particularly vexed the St
George estate has been Mr
Christiansen’s decision to pay
between $23-$24 million to a
combination of the Freeport
Harbour Company and
Hutchison Whampoa, with
about $16 million of the pro-
ceeds being used to settle a
debt related to the Grand
Bahama Airport Company.

The St George estate
believes this may have
deprived ‘it of dividend
income, which is
sole source of funding it
depends on-to finance the lit-
igation.

Retirees worry on
financial futures

@ By DAVE CARPENTER
AP Business Writer

CHICAGO (AP) — Today’s
‘retirees live in what may be the
waning days of retirement’s
golden age, enjoying the full
benefits of Social Security and
company pensions in many cas-
s.

But their concerns are grow-
ing, and not just because of
advancing age. Living on a fixed

oO

income has gotten’ much

tougher in a turbulent econo-
my, health insurance premiums
are rising and the value of many
of their homes is falling.

Retired teacher Rosie Eng-
man, a delegate to the Democ-
ratic National Convention, is
addressing the challenges.in a
way that mirrors the strategy of
many Americans: Living more
frugally. She and her husband
Larry grow their own vegeta-
bles, combine errands to save
on gas and only eat dinners out
on special occasions.

“You have to budget careful-
ly,” said the 69-year-old resi-
dent of Silver Spring, Md.
“Prices are ridiculous.”

The Associated Press inter-
viewed a handful of retiree del-
egates to get some insight into
the economic issues that mat-
ter most to them. :

The past several. decades

“have been a good time to be

retired in America, historically
speaking. Medicare was intro-
duced in 1965, Social Security
was expanded in the 1970s to
provide ample retirement ben-
efits, and pension programs that
began proliferating after World
War II have provided reliably
for many.

Just over 9 percent of the 65-
and-over population was living

_ in poverty in 2006, according to

U.S. Census data — the lowest
in the more than four decades
of tabulating the category. By
contrast, the figure was between
20 percent and 30 percent in the
late 1960s and early °70s.
“Those 65 or older have long
been the-poor population, and
that really has changed for a
very short window — 30 or at

the most 40 years, ” said Steven .

Sass, research director at the
Center for Retirement
Research at Boston College.
“Now we're seeing a contrac-
tion of those income support
systems that supported the
elderly — namely Social Secu-
rity and worker pensions.”

Retirees in future years.may
be in for a rough ride if they
don’t adapt, he said.

Many current retirees, includ-
ing some chosen for the con-
vention, feel like they’re already
scrambling to live well on jimit-
ed resources.

Just as she has worried about
the war in Iraq and the envi-
ronment, Engman now frets
about the economy and its
impact on her family and others.

“I worry about the huge
national debt that will affect all
of us and the poor economic
outlook,” the Obama delegate
said. “I have five grandchildren
and I wonder, what kind of
world will their grandchildren

have?”
Skill

She and her husband are role
models for thrifty living — a
skill many retirees learn by
necessity to master. She hangs
out their clothes to dry, to save
money as well as be ecological-
ly conscious. Their two cars are
10 years old. They shop at a
farmer’s market every week.
And besides the tomatoes,
cucumbers. and peppers they
grow in their yard, they try to
buy only fruits and vegetables
that are in season and other
items that are on sale. *

Creating more. jobs for man-
ufacturing workers out of work
in their native Ohio and else-
where needs to be a priority,
she said. “We understand how
badly the people are hurting

there because we knew tons of ©
people who worked at those

factories.”

Times are similarly tight for -

Eileen Gallagher of Oceanside,
N.Y., who was elected a Barack
Obama delegate: She is focused
on the economy that has dealt
her a double blow this year.

» First she had to sell her home

of 33 years because of fast-rising
bills that last year included
$7,000 in real estate taxes and
$3,000 in oil bills. Then she had
to scrap her trip to the Democ-
ratic convention in Denver due
to the heavy out-of-pocket
costs, replaced by an alternate
delegate.

“With plane fare, hotel and
extra expenses jt -would have
been way over $1,000 and Pm
on a very fixed income,” ‘said
the 76-year-old retired librarian:

Gallagher says she’s strug-
gling some as she goes through
every penny of her $2,600 |
monthly income, which conies
from Social Security and her
and her late husband’s pensions.

Most goes for utilities, main-
tenance and real estate taxes on
the senior coop apartment she -
bought last year. The rest goes:
for food, gas, phone, ‘TV, com-

Among the new converts
are two Republican sena-
tors facing tough re-elec-
tion bids this fall, under-
scoring the role high ener-

gy prices are playing on the .

campaign trail. By signing
on with the group, Sens.
Norm Coleman of Min-
nesota and John Sununu of
New Hampshire have bro-
ken with the majority of
their party, which like
President Bush, would like
to see the moratorium on

_ drilling lifted along the

entire Atlantic and Pacific
coasts. ie
Sununu said Tuesday
that while he favors lifting
the moratorium entirely,
the bipartisan bill opens up
new areas and has a chance
of being passed this year.
The . other senators

. rounding out the Gang of

16 on Tuesday were

Republican John Warner

of Virginia and Democrats
Tim Johnson of ‘South
Dakota, Tom Carper of
Delaware and Ken Salazar
of Colorado.

Leadership

The coalition, under the
leadership of Sens. Saxby
Chambliss, R-Ga., and
Kent Conrad, D-N.D.,

assembled in early August. -

The other four original
Republican members are
John Thune of South
Dakota, Lindsey Graham
of South Carolina, Johnny
Isakson of Georgia and
Bob Corker of Tennessee.
They were joined by
Democrats Blanche Lin-
coln and Mark Pryor of
Arkansas, Mary Landrieu
of Louisiana and Ben Nel-
son of Nebraska.

Congress broke for its
August recess without find-
ing agreement on how big a
role expanded domestic oil
and gas production
should have in a broader
energy bill. Lawmakers
return Sept. 8 for a
three-week session before
leaving again to campaign
for the November elec-
tions.

When Congress recon-
venes, Republican leaders
want an up-and-down vote
on a bill that would allow

- more extensive offshore

drilling. Senate Majority
Leader Harry Reid, D-

Nev., and House Speaker ©

Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif.,
have indicated in recent

weeks that any bill includ- —

ing drilling would be pack-
aged with other measures
opposed, by Republicans,
such as selling oil from
the country’s emergency
stockpile and raising roy-

-alties paid by oil compa-

nies.

i By JULIA MALONE
Cox News Service .

WASHINGTON -- Ina late-
summer U.S. Capitol where
even tourists were in short sup-
ply, a handful of Republican
House members were once
again at their protest posts
Tuesday.

As they have for 18 straight
weekdays now, the GOP law-

ber of the recessed House,
demanding that the Democrat-
ic majority return to allow an
up-or-down vote on an energy
bill that includes more drilling
for oil and gas, including
along the U.S. outer continental
shelf.

Rep. Tom Price of Roswell, a
Georgian who has played a
leading role in the congression-
al “speak-in,” was back in town
to chide the platform the
Democrats produced at their
presidential nominating con-
vention in Denver. Price said it

supply of gasoline,” which he
called “the number one issue of
the day.” '

_ Other Republicans expressed
concern that Democrats in Den-
ver might draw up a new energy
strategy that would go only part
way toward the GOP position.

Rep. Mac Thornberry of
Texas warned against a “cyni-
cal” political move coming “just

makers held forth in the cham- .

“did not mention increasing the |

because we’ve turned up the
heat.”

The Republicans are insist-
ing on a vote on a bill that pro-
vides for maximum production
of American fuels as well as
promoting new energy sources
and energy conservation. Amid
soaring gasoline prices, they
hold that a bipartisan majority
of House members would
agree.

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi,
D-Calif., has refused to allow a
vote on the Republican pro-
posal. She and many Democra-
tic leaders counter that drilling
for more oil would damage the
environment and provide little
price relief at the gas pumps,

. while prolonging dependence

on fossil fuels.

As part of the energy con-
frontation, the Republican law-
makers also seek an end to the
congressional ban on offshore
drilling. The ban is set to-expire
Sept. 30. The GOP pledged to
resist‘any extension, even if it is
inserted into annual spending
legislation needed to run the
federal government.

Asked if the Republicans
would try to shut down the gov-
ernment over the drilling issue,
Price held that “80 percent o!
the American people” favor the
Republican energy proposals
and added, “If push comes to
shove, that’s (the Democrats’)
decision to make.”

1. Win the jack of diamonds with
the king and draw the defenders’
trumps. Next cash the A-Q of dia-
monds, discarding a> club from
dummy. Then, to assure the contract,
you play the A-Q of clubs!

The defender who wins the queen
of cichs with the king must either
return @ spade — in which case you
lose ouily two spade tricks — or con-
cede a rulf-and-discard by returning
a diamond or a ciub.

The tempting club finesse: should

be deliberately avoided because, if it
fails, a club return might well result
in your losing three spade tricks and
the contract. There is no reason to
incur such a risk when you have a
sure thing by playing otherwise.

Of course, if you run into a 4-0
trump division (a 10 percent possi-
bility), your best chance would lie in
eventually attempting the club
finesse. But if the trumps are divided
2-2 or 3-1, the suggested line of play
is 100 percent certain to succeed.

2. Assuming North has heart
length, the only threat to the contract
is if North has five hearts headed by
the ace and South has the club queen.
In that case, you will go down if you
win the first heart and the club
finesse subsequently loses to South,
who then returns his remaining heart.

To keep this from happening, you
should refuse to win the first heart.
South can’t harm you by shifting to
another suit, so let’s assume he
returns a heart. North can win and
continue hearts, but now if the club
finesse loses, North cannot regain the
lead, so you are sure to finish with at
least nine tricks. ©

Note that if North started with only
four hearts, you can never lose more
than four tricks — three hearts and a
club — no matter how you or the
defenders proceed.

“insurance.”

. global trends,

“The gains that occurred
last year were welcome,
but unfortunately, they are
too little, too late,” said
Jared Bernstein, a senior
economist with, the liberal
Economic Policy Institute
in Washington. “The medi-
an household is no better
off now than they were
back in 2000, despite their
deep contribution to the

nation’s economic growth.

during this period.”

- For example, after
adjusting for inflation, last
year’s median ‘household
income of $50,233 was-not
significantly different from

the figure for 2000, which.

was $50,557. “The Ameri-
can work force is baking a
bigger economic pie, but
the slices haven’t grown at
all,” Bernstein said.

But White House
spokesman Tony. Fratto
said the household income
and health insurance num-

' bers are definitely good

news. °
“It’s clear that the long
period of strong economic

growth we Were in had a

positive impact for most
Americans,” Fratto said.
“Obviously today we’re
dealing with higher energy
prices and the downturn in
housing, but the economy
is showing enough
resilience to keep growing
in spite of those chal-
lenges.”

Republican candidate

John McCain distanced

himself from the White
House response, saying in a
statement, “Too many of
our neighbors are living in
poverty, too many can’t
find a job, and too many
are living without health
The Arizona
senator pledged tax cuts
and policy changes to make
health care more afford-
able.

Some analysts said that
not just
administration policies, are
shaping the economic for-

tunes of individual Ameri-
cans.
“Presidents like to take
credit when things go well,
and therefore they should
get the blame when things
don’t go well, but there are

-lots of things driving this,

not all of which are home
grown,” said Douglas
Besharov, an expert on
poverty:-at the business-ori-
ented American Enterprise
Institute. “The oil shocks
are not. And globalization,
which on balance is good
for the country, leaves win-
ners and losers.”
The Census report was
immediately swept up into
presidential politics.
Democratic presidential
candidate Barack Obama’s
campaign fired off a state-
ment blasting what it called
the “failed record” of
Bush’s economic policies
and promising “bottom up
economic growth” if the
Illinois senator is elected.

Census

Overall, the Census

found 37.3 million people °

living in poverty in 2007,
of which 13.3 million were
children. The poverty level
for a four-person family in
2007 was $21,203. Among
age groups, seniors had the
lowest poverty rate at 9.7
percent, while children had
the highest at 18 percent.
The poverty rate for 2006
was 12.3 percent, but the
change in 2007 was not sta-
tistically significant.

The welcome news on

health insurance coverage —

was tempered by the con-
tinued erosion of private
coverage paid for by
employers and individuals.
Government programs —
such as Medicaid for the
poor — picked up the
slack, resulting in the over-
all reduction in people
without health insurance.
The uninsured rate also
fell to 15.3 percent, down

from 15.8 percent.in 2006.

“Private insurance has
been falling (and) public
insurance definitely went
up,” said David Johnson,
who oversees the Census
division that produced the
statistics. The number of
uninsured children also fell
in 2007, after an increase
in 2006 that had interrupt-
ed years of progress in get:

. ting more kids covered.

But seen over a ibnget =
period of time, the health
insurance numbers are not
reassuring. The number of
uninsured — and the rate
— are higher today than
they were at the outset of

the Bush administration in

2001. That year, 39.8 mil-
lion people, or 14.1 per:
cent, were uninsured. —

“The number of unin-
sured is considerably high-
er than when the president
took office, and in each
year since then, employer-
sponsored insurance has

‘continued to diminish,”

said Ron Pollack, executive
director of Families USA, a
liberal group advocating
coverage for all. i

said Butler. 3
The Census report also

underscored the growing

roie of women in the work:

between the earnings o
women and men_has
shrunk to an all-time. low.
In 2007, women working
full-time, year-round aver-
aged 78 percent of what
men earned. But the gen-
der gap varied considerably

- depending on the indus-

tries and. types of jobs
involved. And the good
news for women may not
necessarily be a positive
for family incomes. The
Census found that a major
reason the gap is shrinking
is that men’s earnings have
been fairly flat.
