Last-minute shopping rush

lm By TANEKA THOMPSON.

Tribune Staff Reporter
tthompson@tribunemedia.net

RESIDENTS of the north-
eastern Bahamas were stock-
ing up on last minute storm
supplies yesterday, as they
braced for the double

onslaught of Tropical Storm .

Hanna and Hurricane Ike.

Hanna was expected to_

strengthen into.a category one
hurricane by late today or
tomorrow and make land fall
on the north-western islands
of the Bahamas by tonight.
Hurricane Ike is expected to
follow on Hanna’s heels as
early as Monday.
Residents of New Provi-
dence who spoke to The Tri-
bune yesterday seemed to
have a relaxed approach to
their storm preparations, while
people in the Family Islands
were said to be “in high gear".
'. When The Tribune visited
Kelly’s Home Centre yester-
day afternoon, Eleanor But-
ler, of Stapledon-Gardens, was
purchasing batteries and
lanterns to

hurricane
essentials.

here to get the extra things

that I need,” she said.

Ms Butler said that she was

not too worried about the
damage Hanna may cause, as
. She planned to install her

storm shutters by. this after-
noon. -

Eastern Road resident Ayc-
er Ginter said even though she

‘feels that her home is.secure,

her family may evacuate from
the water front when the storm
hits today. She said that she
did not expect the slow-mov-

_ing Hanna to cause a lot of

damage, but said she is wor-

ried about the other storm sys- -
‘tems following close behind.

Grove resident Ivan Major
said he plans to seek refuge
with his family if heavy flood-
ing occurs. —

schools and businesses were
up and running as normal,
Administrator Cox said, but
he was unsure if they will open
today. The settlement of 600
was ‘in a “wait and see mode”
and will activate storm shel-
ters today if deemed neces-

‘sary, said Mr Cox.

Other parts of the Northern
Bahamas were gearing up for
the storm as well.

Chief Councilor ‘Lloyd
Edgecombe said that in Alice
Town, Bimini, everything was
business as usual as the island
was not yet experiencing any
inclement weather.

In tht Berry Islands, Deputy
Chief Councilor Kevin. Wal-
lace said that in Bullock’s Har-
bor in particular , people have’
moved their preparations into
“high gear”, trying to make
sure their properties are _
secure.

“There are two areas in Bul-
locks Harbour — those persons
who are in low-lying areas, we
are trying to get them to use
the shelter or go to family.
Hopefully the initial prepara-
tions will be able to sustain us

(during) both storms,” he said.

‘impac

on the malar Bahamas

@ By NATARIO McKENZIE

ISLANDS in the south-east-
ern Bahamas were reportedly
only “minimally” impacted by
the passage of Tropical Storm
Hanna. .

The Tribune yesterday con-
tacted officials in the islands of
Inagua and Mayaguana, as
well as in Crooked Island,
Long Cay and Acklins to get
an assessment of the damage
caused by the tropical storm.

-According to Preston Cun-
ningham, island administrator
on Inagua, a few blown-off

roof shingles and a couple of |

fallen trees were the extent of
the storm’s impact on that
island.

“We weathered ‘the storm
pretty good.

“We were out of electricity
for a couple: of days, but we
have had electricity from
Tuesday evening.. Water was
off and on:but that is a prob-
lem we have always had here
in Inagua.

“We lost some shingles
from a couple of roofs here in
Inagua. We lost quite a few
from the administrator’s com-
plex roof, ‘a‘couple of trees
fell, but that was basically it
for the most part,” Mr Cun-
ningham said.

“We had some rain initially,
but for the last day anda half
we haven’t had much rain.’

Francita Neely, adminis-
trator for Crooked Island and

_Long Cay, told The Tribune

that her district experienced

strong winds and intermittent

rain, but no down pour..
“We haven’t had any dam-
age, just a lot of little tress and

shrubs were blown down,” she
said.

Mrs Neely added that all the
residents of Crooked Island
and Long Cay had taken the
necessary prerapnens for the
storm.

The Tribune was unable to
reach the island administrator

ifor Inagua, however, Inspector .

V Rahming, officer in-charge

of the Abraham’s Bay police -

station, reported that that
island had also only sustained:
minimal damage, such as the
loss of a few shingles and



Waving goodbye to

some small tress.
According to Inspector
Rahming, the island experi-
enced a “light rain and fluc-
tuating wind gusts.”
“There wasn’t any flooding

or anything like that because

we really haven’t had much
rain. The only damages are
minimal, just some lines were
down earlier,” Inspector Rah-
ming said. Power has since

been restored to Inagua.

The island of Acklins fared
similarly, according to Con-
stable 3006 Emmanuel of the
Salina Point police station.

Mr Emmanuel said yester-
day that Acklins was experi-
encing partly cloudy condi-

‘tions, but that there had been

no flooding and only minimal
damage. =

Trevor Basden, senior
deputy director in the Depart-
ment of Meteorology attached

to NEMA, said that the

islands in the south-eastern
Bahamas were very fortunate,

‘as the nearby Turks and

Caicos Islands had been
severely impacted by Tropi-
cal Storm Hanna.

“When Hanna moved
across the eastern tip of
Mayaguana it would appear
that the eye went over Provi-
denciales and then the centre
was directly over Inagua.

“During that time, most of

the activity and rainfall was to

the east and the south of .the
centre, and, therefore
Mayaguana and Inagua were
on the western side and so
they did not receive as much

of the continuous rainfall,” Mr —

Basden said. “4

REPUBLICAN presidential nominee John
McCain’s selection of Sarah Palin as his run-
ning mate has put in question his judgment
and understanding of the importance of
national leadership.

McCain’s cynical ploy.seems to have been
an effort to win over disenchanted feminists
who had supported Hillary Clinton’s strong
campaign for the Democratic presidential

‘nomination but who have failed to embrace
the nomination of Barack Obama to top the
ticket.

Equally notable was McCain’s desire to
win over members of the evangelical right
— so influential in the Republican Party —
who have been unhappy with the choice of
McCain as their standard bearer j in the first
place.

In addition to her lack of experience, Palin

_ — governor of Alaska for two years — carries

a lot of unexpected baggage: Bristol, her 17-
year-old unmarried pregnant daughter, plus
a gubernatorial ethics problem for ordering a
public safety commissioner to sack her ex-

brother-in-law who had been involved i in. a:

divorce battle with her sister.

Palin also has some explaining to'do about
her good-government image because she has
simultaneously deplored special interest con-
gressional funding called “earmarks” while
hiring lobbyists to seek millions in federal
funds for her town in ‘Alaska.

Aides to McCain insist that. he knew of
Palin’s problems before selecting her to be his
running mate..But the facts give rise to the
conclusion that he gave very little thought
to the issue before precipitously offering her
‘a place on the ticket.

His amazing choice of “Governor who?”
has yet to be explained unless he thinks expe-

rience and an in-depth understanding of the

nation’s pressing foreign policy issues are

_ irrelevant. In view of McCain’s taunts at Oba-

ma for his questionable ability to serve as.
commander in chief, McCain is barking up a
tree. If McCain thinks he has scored a coup in
capturing the women’s vote with the choice of
Palin, I think he has displayed:an incredible
naiveté about the 20th century women’s
movement.
Obama let the women’s liberation move-
ment down when he refused to name Clinton
-as his running mate. It would have taken a
bigger man to anoint a bitter rival for the
nomination. Where’was the audacity? Instead

McCain’s running-mate pick poor reflection

Obama played it safe. His choice of Sen. -



‘ Joseph Biden of Delaware, chairman of the

Senate Foreign Relations Committee, for the
number two spot on the ticket was designed
to bolster Obama’s foreign ‘policy creden-
tials.

.There is precedent for victorious nominees
reaching out to leading rivals in order to'woo
dissidents into the fold. Presidential candidate
John F. Kennedy tapped Lyndon B. John-
son for the vice presidential slot.in 1960.

The Texas delegation to the nominating
convention had already decided that if
Kennedy made the offer it should be reject-
ed. Kennedy summoned the powerful speak-
er of the House of Representatives, Sam Ray-
burn, ‘to his hotel suite and suggested that
Rayburn. pressure Johnson to accept the nom-
ination.

Rayburn told Kennedy that Johnson pre-
ferred to remain in the Senate as’ majority .

leader. “What makes you think he will con-
tinue to be majority. leader?” Kennedy asked.

As.a result, Rayburn gathered with John-
son and the Texas delegation, telling them
Johnson should accept Kerinedy’s offer. “But

yesterday you said he should not take it,” .

they replied.

“Pm a wiser man today,”
responded.

Lady Bird Johnson was also upset about
her husband’s acceptance of the vice. presi-
dential nomination after having felt snubbed
by the Kennedys. Johnson told his wife
prophetically: “Don’t you know I’ll be one
heart beat away from the presidency?”

President Ronald Reagan picked ‘George:

Rayburn

. Herbert Walker Bush; a rival for the GOP

presidential nomination, to be his running
mate in 1980, although there was a lack of
love between them.

I came to Washington in 1942, and three
vice presidents have ascended to the high-
est office in the land since then. Harry Tru-

_ man succeeded Franklin D. Roosevelt, who

died in office in 1945 during his fourth term.
Johnson succeeded Kennedy upon his
assassination in 1963, and Gerald Ford

became president in 1974 when Richard .

Nixon resigned from office because of the
Watergate scandal. I say all this to explain

_why I think vice presidents are hugely impor-

tant in this uncertain world, a point that
appears to have eluded McCain.

THE TRIBUNE



A message to PM:
give us a realistic
cost of living

EDITOR, The Tribune.

I see much of the Bahamian
people have finally awakened.
After numerous complaints and
letters to your newspaper
regarding the corruption in our
government run utility compa-
nies, I see now they have gone
as far in nearly shutting down
businesses and putting the aver-
age man into bankruptcy with
nearly zero response from gov-
ernment. I see in this morning’s
paper a fruitless response from
Minister Neymour explaining
the high costs and that it will

come down soon. He further

explains that it cannot come
down until the present inven-
tories are used up as the cost of

these inventories has been paid

for at the higher price.

Just one question Minister:
Why is it that the surcharge
increased immediately when
world oil prices increased?
Surely BEC hasn’t bought that
fuel and has it delivered here
the following morning? So
while BEC increased the fuel

_ Surcharge immediately, they

chose to wait several months to
lower the surcharge and milk
the Bahamian public eventually
sending us back to the stone
age. The Minister also suggests
that someone has to pay, which
obviously will be us, the
Bahamian public. Once again, if

BEC can’t make a profit or.

break even with these ridicu-
lous rates (second highest in the
world!) along with an unprece-

- dented. monopoly, then there
‘can only be three reasons to

explain this situation;

1) Someone possibly “‘tiefin”, .

2). Certain people in there

must have the IQ ofa puck and ©
- are just plain stupid or

3) (which is the most likely)
A combination of both. The
numerous BEC and BTC
employees I speak to are only
making a few hundred dollars
per week so certainly they
aren’t receiving the funds.

Apparently government isn’t
interested in providing, nor can
it afford any relief. Well they
ran ona platform and created a
mirage budget of lower taxes

and at the end of the day taxes"

on businesses and the cost of
goods went up a minimum of
35+ per cent in this recessed
economy. It is one of the most

deceiving budgets in recent his-

tory from any administration.
Like a pack of lionesses sur-
rounding its prey we are alive
but realise the end is so very
near. Many of us always
thought private enterprise ‘and
capitalism is the enemy, but in
the end it is our own govern-

“ment and their utility cash cows

that will bury us all.

And while we are on the sub-
ject of “milking” the Bahami-
an people, I did finally hear
back from BEC. regarding my
claim. Ironically it came a few
days after my last correspon-
dence to The Editor of The Tri-

“ bune just over two weeks ago. I .

assume many of you know their
that’s right, they are
not honouring the claim. Fur-
thermore a neighbour of mine

has informed me that they

showed up to my residence to
yet again change my meter. I

‘am. assuming the increase will

be. yet another 35+ per cent, at
which a gentle humming sound

will be heard from my residence
in the near future regardless of
the law. Government utility
unions and.their “bigwigs” don’t
follow law and order, why
should any other Bahamian cit-
izen? Attached ‘is my response
to the Deputy General Manag-
er for your perusal. I find it
incredible that the government
is allowed to get away with this
and perhaps “Insight” should
take the “bull by the horns” and
expose this as-it did exposing
our profound legal profession.
’ As for recent comments by
union and certain political lead-
ers regarding the (what should
be) illegal strike(s) over the past
few weeks. I suggest the gov-
ernment take the leaders by
their word. I believe one said
he would go to jail for his union
members, well then send him
off to Fox Hill. I am quite cer-

tain as the cuffs are wrapped — .

around his wrist, quite differ-
ent demeanour will come over
him. If the government does not
act and act forcefully now we

‘will be forever held hostage and

this country will then be. at the
point of no return (at least in
my lifetime). Quite frankly if
there is a strike, I suggest all
consumers of these monopolies
cease and desist from any form

-of payment for a few months.

Oh they will cut the entire
island off, you say!... What is
the difference, we are off most
of the time now.

In the name of God and our

. Bahamaland will the PM and

I HAVE read several letters
of complaint in recent editions
of The Tribune concerning the
closure of some services at the
General Post Office because of
the malfunctioning of the air

that the areas affected were

understanding that closure is at
2.30pm. That was until today.

I happened to go to the base-
ment area of the General Post
Office at about 2pm and found
that the whole operation ‘in that
area was closed from lpm with
the exception of BEC and
National Insurance which close
at 2.30pm. Has it occurred to
anyone that the persons who

vants who are hired to work
from. 9am to 5pm everyday?
These public officers have half-

‘day off everyday. Is the Perma-

nent Secretary of the Ministry
of Public Personnel and the Sec-
retary to the Cabinet aware of
this?

Is anyone aware of the impli-
cations of closing this area of
the post office at 1pm every-
day? All incoming mail is
received in the basement and
all outgoing mail leaves from
this area. Mail is sorted in this
area not only for New Provi-
dence but for the Family Islands
as well. Persons who have writ-
ten in before have complained
that they could not collect pack-

cages because the package deliv- ~

ery counter was closed. That is
only a small part of the prob-
lem.

The post office has never
been noted for good and effi-

cient service. Can the whole
country be held hostage
because a few persons cannot
work in hot conditions? I am
fully aware that public servants
are often expected to work
under appalling conditions, a
circumstance that must be
changed. Can public servants
just walk off the job because it is
too hot? .

After all these weeks why has
the air conditioning system not
been fixed?

I find this to be astounding.
Another astounding fact is-that
mail originating or coming
through the United States to
the Bahamas is routed through —
Jamaica. Is there any wonder
that the mail service in the
Bahamas is so slow?

THE Princess Margaret

However, patient regis-
tration at Princess Mar-
garet Hospital will operate
normally for the foresee-.

able future, the Public Hos- |

said yesterday in a press .
statement.

The scheduled registra-

been postponed due to the
tropical storm systems
affecting the Bahamas.

The registration system
upgrade will be resched-

_ This exercise will require
the system to be taken off-

time, which may result in

potential delays for patients

being registered at the

department.

The PHA will advise the
public on the new date for
the system upgrade.

A 28-YEAR-OLD Bahamian man was arrested in Florida

The United States Immigration and Customs Enforcement
(ICE) branch in Fort Myers worked m conjunction with the

Collier County Sheriff’s Office to round-up the individuals on -

August 28 and August 29 in Collier County. According to a
S Immigration and Customs Enforcement press release, at

‘Emanuel Alce, 28, a Bahamian, was among those picked

Alce was ordered to be deported by an immigration judge ~
in January, but somehow avoided expulsion from the country.

Roker recently took NBC net-

ration of Bahamian plantation
history as he retraced his
Bahamian heritage to Exuma
as part the Today Show’s
“Discover Your Roots” series.

Bahamian historians told’

the famous weatherman that it
is most probable that his
ancestors adopted the name
Roker from Exuma landown-
er Thomas Roker — a slave
owner for whom Roker’s
Point, Exuma, is named.

Records of St Andrew’s
Anglican Church in George

his lineage.

St Andrew’s records led Mr
Roker to information about
his great-great-grandfather

‘ Robert Roker and his great-

grandfather David Roker.

“And then Remelda, that’s

Mr Roker spoke with many
Bahamian sources to complete
his report. ..

Among others, he inter-

businessman Kermit Rolle.
As part of the Today Show’s

Mr Roker also travelled to

to research his family history.
The Today Show segment
included significant excerpts

‘of video from his 1999 trip to

Exuma for his “Travels with

. The television segment
aired August 29, the day of

the day that Barack Obama
accepted a nomination that
made him the United States’

American nominee for presi-

Mr Roker was able to use
interviews and historical doc-

his name.

An estimated 5.6 million
viewers saw the segment. If

American personnel to fly to States.

THE United States Embassy
on yesterday officially autho-
rised all non- emergency Amer-
ican citizen personnel:and all

. family members to depart their
"posts.

The Embassy made this deci-
sion due to the possibility of
adverse weather conditions as
a result of Tropical Depression
Gustav,.and Tropical Storms
Hanna, Ike, and Josephine..

“Under authorised departure,
non-emergency ‘personnel and
family members are permitted
to leave their post of assignment
to return temporarily to the
United States.

“The decision to depart is
their choice, they cannot be
compelled to leave,” the US
Embassy said yesterday ina
statement.

The US Embassy said it took
this precautionary step in order
to protect the welfare of Amer-
ican citizens and to lessen the
potential demand placed on dis-
aster relief resources in the
Bahamas.

“All non US passport hold-
ers wishing to depart the
Bahamas are required to have a
valid US visa.

“Bahamian nationals are
allowed to travel to the US
without a visa only if prior to

- or at boarding'a flight destined

to the US they are cleared by a
Customs Border Protection offi-
cer,” the Embassy said.

“If and when CBP pre-clear-
ance operations in Nassau and
Freeport close, Bahamian
nationals applying for entry
upon arrival into the United
States will be required to have a
valid Bahamian Passport and
US Visa. US visa waivers may
be considered on a case by
basis.

“These individuals will be
subject to paying the visa waiv-
et fee of $545.

“All non-US travelers will
still be subject to inspection and
final entry approval by CBP.”

Florida settles with
supplier in fake
grouper probe

@ TAMPA, Fla..

GROUPER lovers can edt
assured they’re getting the gen- :
uine article at Tampa Bay-area :
restaurants after the Florida :
attorney general's office ;
announced a_ settlement
Wednesday with a national food :

distributor that had been selling :
substitute kinds of fish, accord- :

ing to Associated Press.

Sysco Food Services-West }
Coast Florida, Inc., is alleged to :
have supplied less expensive fish :
to restaurants who advertised it :
as grouper on their menus. An :
investigation into more than 20 }
Tampa Bay restaurants found }
Sysco had supplied a substitute :

fish for 14.

Under the terms of the settle-
ment, Sysco must refrain from :
’ marketing a fish as grouper}
unless it takes steps to deter- :

mine it is in fact genuine.

The company must also:
donate $100,000 worth of food :
items to local soup kitchens and : ©
charities, and pay the state’s :
investigative fees of costs of:

$200,000.

“Grouper is an important part }
of Florida’s market and every-:
one gains from ensuring that our
restaurants are serving the real ;
Attorney General Bill :
McCollum said in. a news:

thing,”

release.

The attorney general office’s :
probe began in 2006. Investiga- :
tors collected -fish from more :
than 20 restaurants and sent the :
specimens to.a St. Augustine lab ;

for DNA testing.

The results confirmed what :-
some had already suspected: :
Seventeen of the restaurants: .
were serving other fish as:
grouper, such as Emperor, Hake :

and Green Weakfish.

said that in signing an assurance :
of voluntary compliance, a com- :
pany does not admit to any:

‘Storm flooding fears fo
- Queens Cove residents

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

FREEPORT - Queens
Cove residents fear that the
movement of Tropical

- Storm Hanna to the east of

Grand Bahama could cause
severe flooding in that resi-
dential subdivision on the
island’s north shore.
Queens Cove, which is
surrounded by water and
man-made canals, has
always been prone to flood-
ing during hurricanes.
Resident Clarence. Bellot
believes the area could
experience flooding if Han-
na remains east of the

island.

Path

He said the storm’s fore-
casted path is very similar
to Hurricane Floyd — a cate-
gory four storm - which
caused flooding in Queens
Cove several years ago.

“We in Queens Cove
don’t want it go east, we
hope it goes west. If it goes
west we should be okay;” he
said.

Mr Bellot said Queen
Cove residents have already
started preparing for the
storm’s arrival.

“People here are running

around battening up (their

homes). There. is a concern \

for flooding whenever a hur-
ricane.is travelling this way.
“Right now, the storm has

been unpredictable for the
past three days and it is
seems to be moving east
which is not good for us

because anything east of

Grand Bahama is going to

flood the north shore,” he
. said.

Mr Bellot said if the storm
continues on its path east of
Grand Bahama like Floyd
did, it is going to send strong
winds from the north north-

.east which. will push the
water level up in Hawksbill
Creek and cause flooding 3 in
Queens Cove.

Wind
He explained that if the
tide is low when the storm
passes, flooding will be

unlikely, “but if we get wind
and an in-coming tide at the

same time we will have a

problem.”

Mr Bellot has ridden out
several storms at his home,
which was under four to five
feet of water during Hurri-
cane Frances.

He said he has cleared
away debris from his prop-

erty and has ensured that his .

vehicle and’ boat are in good
working condition in case he
has to leave.

“Right now, it looks like I
am going to stay, but I have
created a five-point plan,
and right now I am at stage
two — cleaning up things

from the yard and getting

things up as high as I can off
the ground,”

Mr Bellot said he is keep- |

ing a close eye on the storm.

British tour operator

— stops Bahamas s

THE country’s tourism
industry received another
blow yesterday, as a popular
British tour operator discon-
tinued its service to the
Bahamas.

The popular travel site. First
Choice has pulled its Bahamas
programme due to a lack of
demand.

The summer-only pro-
gramme, which used fort-

nightly flights departing from _

New & Pre- Owned
- Vehicles






















Manchester in the United.
Kingdom, will cease at the end
of the summer season in Octo-
ber, the British web site Trav-
el Weekly reported yesterday.

A spokesperson for First
Choice told the travel site that
“as is usual business practice
for any tour operator, First
Choice continually evaluates
the performance of its desti-
nations, ensuring that it under-
stands where it is | performing '
well.

“Unfortunately, a lack of

demand for Bahamas holidays

has greatly detrcasar the prof-
itability of this destination.”
_ In the past, First Choice
offered Bahamas holidays
from $1,471.

The operator | offered stays
at five New Providence and
Paradise Island properties,
including the Atlantis Resort,
the Sandals Royal Bahamian
Hotel, the Paradise Island

Harbour Resort,; SuperClubs. _ :

Island.
‘First Choice will continue
to. run programmes in seven



ervice

/

; other Caribbean destinations .

including Jamaica, Barbados,
the Dominican Republic, Aru-
ba and Cuba.

The decision by the British
operator to discontinue its ser-

-vice.to the Bahamas is anoth-

er setback. for the country’s
tourism industry, which hopes
to attract more European

. travellers in future.
As the United States:econ-: ‘’’



and American travellers have
less disposable income to:
spend on vacations to the des-
tinations such as the Bahamas,

local tourism officials are hop-
ing to capture the strong
Canadian and European mar-
kets.

_ The Ministry of Tourism
has already allocated signifi-
cantly more money of its $86
million budget to promoting

the Bahamas in Canada and

Europe.

rant manager who witnessed the
incident that he hated ducks. .

_The restaurant manager

The northeast
- Bahamas braced
for tropical storm

FROM page one

and was about 670 miles east-

northeast of the Leeward -

Islands up to press time last
night. Ike is expected to batter
the Bahamas as early as Sun-
day morning.

At 5 pm yesterday, the cen-

tre of tropical storm Hanna
was about 100 miles northeast
of Great Inagua and 60 miles
west-northwest of Grand Turk
. Up to. press time last night,
Hanna's tropical force winds
extended outward up to 290
miles mainly to the north of

the centre.

Last night the Department
of Meteorology issued a hur-
ricane warning for the north-
west Bahamas —New Provi-
dence, Grand Bahama,
Eleuthera, Abaco, Andros,
Bimini and the Berry
Islands— anda hurricane
warning for the central
Bahamas — Long Island, Cat
Island, San Salvador,
Eleuthera and:Exuma —
remained in place. The tropi-
cal storm warning for the
southeast Bahamas and Turks
and Caicos-Islands was down-

graded to a tropical storm

watch for those islands. _

Because Hanna is speeding
up, forecasters said they do
not expect heavy flooding in
the warning areas.

"Heavy flooding is always
a concern. because 80 per cent
of the Bahamas is 10 feet or
less above main sea-level. But
with the convection, with all
the rain and thunderstorms,
in more towards the north and
east of the system and also the
speed of the system I don't

ATLAN TIS .

think so. When (Hanna)
moved past Mayaguana and

directly hit Inagua they had>

no flooding because the
weather was more towards the
east and southeast, so we are
always cautious and, yes, there
is the likelihood (of flooding),
but if the system remains as
is but not a great possibility,"
Senior Deputy Director of the
Department of Meteorology
said after a NEMA press con-
ference yesterday.

National Security Ministar
Tommy Turnquest, represen-
tatives from NEMA, the Roy-
al Bahamas Police Force, the
Department of Meteorology
and others were also at the
press conference.

Hanna was projected to.

move directly over the rain-
battered Turks and Caicos at
10:.pm last night, and turn
towards the eastern tip of
Mayaguana at 1 am today and
move very near to San Sal-
vador around 1 pm today,
Senior Deputy Director at the
Department of Meteorology
Trevor Basden said at a

NEMA press conference yes- °

terday.

Although New Providence
is expected to miss the brunt
of the storm, residents in the

‘capital should experience hur-

ricane conditions by 7 o’clock
tonight. Shelters throughout
the country will open at 12
noon today to accommodate
residents who feel their homes
are not secure. Persons with

pets or special needs should.

play close attention to news
broadcasts for specific infor-
mation.

Mr Basden said the increase

in named storms this hurri-

‘cane season is not unprece-

dented.

"During the (wrath) Hurri-
cane Frances, (Hurricane)
Ivan was also on the way and
also (Hurricane) Jean. (The
cause of all these storms) is
really up to debate but I think
that the sophistication of our
meteorological instruments
and our denser network of
satellite systems have allowed

the hurricane centre to be’

able to identify all of these
systems. In years gone past,
the dense network was not
there and I suspect that most
of these systems that are now

. being named would have gone ©

unnamed."
Tropical Storm Hanna
moved over the western tip of

‘Mayaguana and directly over

Inagua on Tuesday, however,
very minimal damage was
reported on these islands,
according to the Department
of Meteorology.

Forecasters are not resting,
however, as their eyes are
already fixed on the strength-
ening Ike, which could reach
category four strength.

"Ike is expected to move
between the central and the

southeast Bahamas between
early Monday morning, but’
- it's still a bit too early to tell.

But the cone of the storm
takes us all the way to the
northern Bahamas and the
southern Bahamas so anyone
of those islands can be affect-
ed by Ike and we do antici-
pate it to be a category one
or category two hurricane,"

meteorologist Wayne Neely |

said.

He said the island can
expect to experience-some
storm conditions by late
Thursday and Friday.

Mr Russell and officials
of the GBDCC held a press

conference at the Adminis-
trator Office in Freeport to
discuss plans that are being
implemented by the com-
mittee.

He said residents should
be monitoring the storm
and making the necessary
preparation to their homes,
and purchasing hurricane
supplies, such as water,

capabilities with the assistance of the Bahamian people. It has -

been said before, the police are the public and the public is the
police.

“In addition to these short-term initiatives, the force will
reactivate a committee to look at a five to 10-year strategic
development plan that will serve as the blueprint to chart the
way forward,” he said.

In 1999, the government commissioned CDR International to
undertake a strategic review of the Royal Bahamas Police
Force’and a re-engineering review of the Criminal Investigation
Department. Upon completion, the report made 140 recom-
mendations. A number of these recommendations have been
fully implemented, while some are at various stages of imple-
mentation, and others have yet to be considered.

Of some of the major implementations, Commissioner Fer-
guson said, are the Commissioner’s Annual Report, ‘the estab-
lishment of the Complaints Branch, investigation of incidents of
use of nolice firearms, tape recording of interviews, the estab-
lishment of a public relations officer, the Internal Security Divi-
sion, and the regular evaluation of crime figures and clear up
rates.

These examples are but a few in list of many, however some

recommendations, such as the removal of the police band and
the fire services from the establishment were not accepted, as it
was thought that these-persons are in fact police officers in the

’ first instance, and specialists otherwise.

“Where these recommendations have been implemented for
the first part they have produced the desired results. A case in
point is the creation of divisional detective units. These have put
police resources where the citizens are,’ ” Commissioner Fergu-

= gon said. ~

-“Sunilarly, | commanders‘now have direct responsibility for the
management: of crimes in their areas,” hé'said.

While this is all noted, the commissioner said that there are
two items that the force would most pressingly like to see;
mainly the implementation of closed circuit television, and the

_ construction of'a state of the art forensic science facility to

includea DNA lab.
“Studies have demonstrated that the use of CCl V has played

an important role in reducing crime and the fear of crime. I am.
- confident that with the proper regulatory controls and the

upkeep of the system, many offenders will be brought to justice
while potential offenders will be prevented from committing
crime.

“While the RBPF is the premier law enforcement agency in
the Bahamas, its work remains incomplete without the assistance
of the public. In this vein, the call goes out to all people of
goodwill to step up to the plate and be counted in the quest to

save our fair land, After all, the buck stops with us all,” Com-

missioner Ferguson said.

With Tropical Storm
Hanna having already
entered the southeastern
Bahamas, residents in cen-
tral and northeastern

Bahamas are now being

set to be closed as a result
of tropical storm Hanna
due to affect. New Provi-
dence later this evening.
Due to the approach of
tropical storm Hanna on
the northeastern Bahamas,
including New Providence,



there are a number of busi-
ness and agencies that have
confirmed that employees

- are exempt from work

today.

General Manager for the
Wyndham Resort Robert
Sands confirms that by 1
pm today, an announce-
ment will be made at the
resort to what actions — in
terms of employees report-
ing for duty — will be made
based on tropical storm
Hanna.

Employees at Wendy’ S
and at SuperValue, are also
exempted from work today.

According to Minister for
National Security Tommy
Turnquest, all government
employees are expected to
show up for work today.

For employees at various
banks throughout Nassau,
up until new times, it was

urged by officials to prop-
erly prepare themselves for
what could be “a’rough
couple of days.”

The unpredictable storm,
which was classified a cate-
gory 1 hurricane on Mon-
day and later downgraded,
is expected today to once

again develop into a cate-.

gory 1 storm according to
meteorologist Mike Stubbs.
And just at the heels of
tropical storm Hanna, is
Hurricane Ike which is set
to follow a similar path as
that of Hanna.
Pre-hurricane prepara-
tions such as stocking up on
canned goods, water, hav-
ing battery operated radios,
and with persons securing
family and property, are
some of the basic things
many people should’ have
done before the storm.

‘Hurricane shelters to

canned goods, flashlights,
and batteries.

Lillian Quant Forbes,
assistant director of the
Department of Social Ser-
vices, with responsibilities
for shelter management,
said persons should only go
to the shelter as a last
resort.

She said the shelter at
Maurice Moore Primary
and the shelter for special
needs persons at Christ the
King Church Hall opened
on Wednesday.

“Not everyone has to
come into the shelter if your

home is sturdy. You should

first contact family or
friends who will be willing
to host you in their homes,
but if that is not possible
then we say come to the
shelter,” said Mrs Forbes.
Mrs Forbes said because
the areas of Hunters, Mac
Town.-and Pinder’s Point
are known as flood zones, a
shelter was established at

the St.Georges High School .

for those residents.

She said shelters have
been identified in Eight
Mile Rock for residents in
West Grand Bahama.

Mrs Forbes said persons
staying at shelters should
take their personal supplies
because only a minimal
amount of food will be pro-
vided.

“We understand (eco-
nomic), conditions experi-
enced in Grand Bahama,
but we are advising them to
bring whatever they can to
the shelter, in addition to
medication or important
documents, papers that they
want.to keep safe,” she said.

Administrator Rufus
Johnson said the Emer-
gency Operation Centre in
Eight Mile Rock will open
at 2pm on Thursday, and
the Eight Mile Rock gym-
nasium shelter will open at
5pm.

He added that the Martin
Town Community Church
and the Bethel Baptist
Church will serve as shel-
ters if the need should arise.

The telephone numbers
for the EOC are 348-1531
and 348-1533.

Minister: Russell said
transportation will be pro-
vided for those persons
needing'to be taken to shel-
ters:

“We are asking citizens
on Grand Bahama to stay
tuned to the radio and be
prepared and ready to
move if they have to,” he
said.

Mr Russell said advisory
for school closures will be
announced when a hurri-
cane warning has been
issued or if tropical storm
conditions are experienced.

GBDCC chairman
Stephanie Rahming said
persons may contact the
EOC in Freeport at 351-

Pakistan says foreign

troops raid village

@ By PAUL ALEXANDER
ISLAMABAD,
Pakistan

Pakistan angrily condemned a
raid on a village that killed at least
15 people Wednesday, claiming
U.S.-led troops flew in from
Afghanistan for the first known
foreign ground assault against a
suspected Taliban haven in this
country’s wild tribal belt, accord-
ing to the Associated Press.

The Foreign Ministry protested
the attack, and an army

spokesman warned that the
apparent escalation from recent
missile strikes on militant targets

along the Afghan border would
further anger Pakistanis and
undercut cooperation in the war
against terrorist groups.

The boldness of the thrust fed
speculation about the intended
target. But it was unclear whether
any extremist leader was killed
or captured in the operation,
which occurred in one of the mil-
itant strongholds dotting a fron-
tier region considered a likely hid-

ing place for Osama bin Laden

and al-Qaida’s No. 2 leader,
Ayman al-Zawahri.

U.S. military and civilian offi-
cials declined to respond to Pak-
istan’s complaints or discuss the

attack, but one official in Wash-

ington said any decision to launch
a mission sure to anger Pakistan
would require, a very important
target.

Suspected U. S. missile attacks
killed at least two al-Qaida com-
manders this year in the same
region, drawing protests from

.Pakistan’s government that its

sovereignty was under attack.
U.S. officials did not acknowl-
edge any involvement in those
attacks.

But American commanders
have been complaining publicly
that Pakistan puts too little pres-
sure on militant groups. that are
blamed for mounting violence in
Afghanistan, stirring speculation
that U.S. forces might lash out
across the frontier.

In other signs of Pakistan’s pre-
carious stability three days before
legislators elect a successor to
Pervez Musharraf as president,
snipers shot at the prime minis-
ter’s limousine near Islamabad
and government troops killed two
dozen militants in another area
of the restive northwest.

Pakistani officials said they
were lodging'strong protests with
the U.S. government and its mil-
itary representative in Islamabad
about Wednesday’s raid in the
South Waziristan area, a,notori-
ous hot bed of militant activity.

. The Foreign ‘Ministry called the
strike “a gross violation of Pak-
istan’s territory,” saying it could
“undermine the very basis of

~ cooperation and may fuel the fire

of hatred and violence that we
are trying to extinguish.”

Government and military offi-
cials insisted that either the
NATO force or the U.S.-led
coalition in Afghanistan — both
commanded by American gener-
als — were responsible.

The army’s spokesman, Maj.
Gen. Athar Abbas, said the
attack was the first incursion onto
Pakistani soil by troops from the
foreign forces that ousted
Afghanistan’s hard-line Taliban
regime after the Sept. 11 attack
on the U.S.

He said the attack would
undermine Pakistan’s efforts to

isolate Islamié eXtrémists and

could threaten NATO’s major

IN THIS PICTURE released by the Press Information Department, bullet marks are seen in a window of the car:
of Pakistan Prime Minister Yousuf Raza Gilani which was attacked in Islamabad, Pakistan, Wednesday, Sept 3,
2008. Pakistan's prime minister survived an apparent assassination attempt Wednesday when at least two shots,
hit his limousine as he drove toward the capital.

Pakistan’s Indian Ocean port of

Karachi through the tribal Tegion

into Afghanistan.

“We cannot afford a huge
uprising at the level of tribe,”
Abbas said. “That would be com-
pletely counterproductive and
doesn’t help the cause of fighting
terrorism in the area.”

A spokesman for the U.S.-led

coalition in Afghanistan, 1st Lt.
Nathan Perry, said he had “no
information to give”
Wednesday’s incident. A
spokesman for NATO troops in
Afghanistan denied any involve-
ment. The Bush administration
allowed the complaint by Pak-
istan’s Foreign Ministry to stand
without a public response, an
indication of the political sensi-
tivities involved.
Officials at the Pentagon,
White House and State Depart-
ment wouldn’t even confirm the
raid occurred. Defense Depart-
ment spokesman Bryan Whitman
said: “I have nothing for you.”
But-one official, a South Asia
expert who agreed to discuss the
situation only if not quoted by
name, suggested the target.of any

' raid like that reported Wednes-

day would have to be extremely
important to risk an almost
assured “big backlash” from Pak-
istan.

“You have to consider that
something like this will be a
more-or-less once-off opportuni-
ty for which we will have to’pay a
price in terms Of Pakistani coop-
eration,” the official said.

The Pakistani anger threatens
to upset efforts by American
commanders to draw Pakistan’s
military into the U.S. strategy of

‘dealing harshly with the militants.

Adm. ‘Mike Mullen, chairman
of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, met
last week with Gen. Ashfaq
Kayani, the Pakistani army chief.

“Mullen said he came away

encouraged that Pakistanis were
becoming more focused on the
problem of militants using the
country-as a safe haven.

_ However, Abbas, the army
spokesman, said Wednesday that
cross-border commando opera-
tions were not discussed and he
reiterated Pakistan’s position that

its forces should be exclusively

responsible for operations on its
territory. Pakistani officials say
the U.S. and NATO should share
intelligence and allow Pakistani
troops to execute any raids need-
ed inside Pakistan. However,

‘Washington has accused rogue

elements in Pakistan’s main intel-
ligence service of leaking sensi-
tive information to militants. .

American officials say destroy-
ing militant sanctuaries in Pak-
istani tribal regions is key to
defeating Taliban-led militants in
Afghanistan whose insurgency
has strengthened every. year since
the fundamentalist militia was
ousted for harboring bin Laden.

But there has been debate in
Washington over how far the U.S.
can go on its own..

The Associated: Press report-‘:..

engagement allow ground troops.
to go a little over six miles into;
Pakistan when in hot pursuit o
insurgents and when forces are*

rules allow aircraft £0 go 10 miles 3
into Pakistan air space.

Abbas said Wednesday’s attack ™
occurred in a village a little over a .
mile inside Pakistan.

Citing witness. and uiteltigénce :

_A-chunk of ice shelf nearly:

the size of Manhattan has bro-
ken away from Ellesmere Island
in Canada’s northern Arctic,
another dramatic indication, of
how warmer temperatures are
changing the polar frontier, sci-
entists said Wednesday, accord-

ing to the Associated Press.

- Derek Mueller, an Arctic ice
shelf specialist at Trent Univer-
sity in Ontario, told The Asso-
ciated Press that the 4,500-year-
old Markham Ice Shelf sepa-

‘rated in early August and the

19-square-mile shelf is now
adrift in the Arctic Ocean.

_ “The Markham Ice Shelf was
a big surprise because it sud-

denly disappeared. We went

under cloud for a bit during our
research and when the weather
cleared up, all of a sudden there
was no more ice shelf. It was a

‘shocking event that underscores |

the rapidity of changes taking

place in the Arctic,” said.

Muller.

‘Muller also said that two
large s sections of ice detached
from the-Serson Ice Shelf,
shrinking that ice feature by 47
square miles — or 60 percent
— and that the Ward Hunt Ice

Shelf has also continued ‘to -

break up, losing an additional
eight square miles.

Muller reported last month
that seven square miles of the
170-square-mile and 130-feet-

thick Ward Hunt shelf had bro-

ken off. This comes on the heels

of unusual cracks in a northern:

Greenland glacier, rapid melt-

ing of a southern Greenland |
glacier, and a near record: loss.

And earlicr this year a 160-
square mile chunk of an Antarc-

’ “Reduced sea ice conditions
and unusually high air temper-

shelf losses this summer,’

Laboratory for Cryospheric .

After Gustav doesn’t deliver, will people

m@ NEW ORLEANS

MILLIONS fled the Gulf Coast in
fear of Hurricane Gustav, billed as the

apocalyptic “mother of all-storms.” It.

didn’t deliver. Now, with three other
storms lining up in the Atlantic, some
fear people might not listen next time,
according to the Associated Press.

As the first of the 2 million people
who fled Gustav began to trickle home
Tuesday from shelters, many grumbled
about the food, the heat, the over-
crowding, the uncertainty and the frus-
trating wait for the all-clear. Some evac-
uees, particularly in Texas, on the far
fringes of the storm’s path, suggested
authorities overreacted in demanding
they leave their homes.

“Next time, it’s going to be bad
because people who evacuated like us
aren’t going to evacuate,” Catherine
Jones, 53, of Silsbee, Texas, who spent
three days on a cot at a church shelter
with her disabled son. “They jumped
the gun.”

Emergency officials strongly defend-
ed the decision to evacuate coastal
areas, saying that with something as
unpredictatle as a hurricane, it is better
to be safe than sorry — a lesson driven
home by Katrina, which killed 1,600
people in the U.S. in 2005, compared
with nine deaths attributed to Gustav.

Officials noted’ that, yes, New
Orleans’ levees held, and Gustav struck
only a glancing blow. But when trees
fell on homes, power lines went down
and roads were washed out, there was

no one around to get hurt. And there

was significant damage: Early insur-
ance industry estimates put the expect-
ed damage to covered properties at

if



anywhere from $2 billion to $10 bil-
lion. That’s high, but well short of Katri-
na’s $41 billion.

“The reasons you’re not seeing dra-
matic stories of rescue is because we
had a successful evacuation,” said

Homeland Security Secretary Michael.

Chertoff. “The only reason we don’t
have more tales of people in grave dan-
ger is because everyone heeded the
instructions.to get out of town.”.

At the same time, a top emergency
planner in Louisiana acknowledged
that authorities run of the risk of being
accused of crying wolf.

“At all levels, that is a tremendous
concern,” said Col. Pat Griffin, head

of logistics for the state. “After one or '

two or three of these, I think the lead-
ership on the local and state level are
going to have to push even harley to
convince the people.”

With three months left in the Atlantic
hurricane season, the question of
whether residents will heed an evacua-

to New Orleans,La., in Slidell, La., Tuesday,
Sept. 2, 2008. Peterson and her grandchil-
dren evacuated New Orleans to escape
Hurricane Gustav:



tion order is a serious matter. Three
storms are lining up in the Atlantic,
with Tropical Storm Hanna leading the
way. Hanna could strengthen into a
hurricane and hit Florida and Georgia
later in the week.

New Orleans Mayor Ray Nagin, who
ordered the city evacuated and warned
that the “mother of all storms” was
approaching, strongly stood by his deci-
sion, and: said’he would make do the
same thing all over again.

“We were faced with a Category 5
potential, a huge storm; which would

have been really bad news for our citi-

zens,” Nagin said. “And there was a
complacency.”

Similarly, some evacuees said author-
ities made the right call.

James Katicich, a 49-year-old |

BRIE said his stay at a shelter in
Birmingham, Ala., was rough —

Tationed portions of food and sleéping .

just inches away from strangers.
“But it’s better to be safe than sorry,”

he said. “We needed to evacuate
because no one really knows how bad
the hurricane can be until it hits.”
The damage assessments coming in
Tuesday from the coast provided fur-
ther evidence Gustav was no Katrina.
Initial inspections showed little dam-
age to the Gulf Coast’s extensive oil
and gas installations, though resump-

-tion of production and refining could

still take a few days. Reflecting confi-
dence that the industry suffered little
damage, oil prices fell $5.75 a barrel.

In some places, such as Texas, Gus-
tav barely brought a sprinkle, leading to
frustration among those who had to
spend days on a cot. The Beaumont
Enterprise went as far as to taunt “Gus-
tav Who?” on the front page the day
after the storm.

“My brother went to ‘Atlanta. He
can’t get back. He’s not happy,” said
Rod Ferrand, who lives in the New

_Orleans suburb. of Harahan, as he cut

up a stately live oak split by the storm.
‘And there’s not a branch on his lawn.
Now no one can come back in. The
next big storm that comes in, nobody’s
going to want to leave.”

Many evacuees grew frustrated Tues-

‘day as the waited for word on whether

they could return to their homes. New
Orleans officials said it would be at
least Thursday before people would be
allowed back, because the city lacked
many vital services.
Across the state, more than 1 mil-

- lion: people were without electricity,
,and cellular and Internet service was

spotty. Gas stations were unable to
pump. fuel because of the power out-
ages. The threat of severe weather had
yet to fully pass, too. _

Cambridge University
wants to he on TV soaps

LONDON ;

BRITAIN’S soap operas
offer a steady diet of sex, scan-

versity has its way, scholarship,
according to the Associated
Press.

Trying to. shed its elitist
image, Cambridge has
approached the producers of
Britain’s three leading TV soaps
about including it in their story
lines.

Spokesman Greg Hayman
said the idea was part of a bid to
correct the perception that Cam-
bridge was “not for young peo-
ple from ordinary backgrounds.”

“We're very keen to attract
the brightest and best students
regardless of their background,”
Hayman said Tuesday. “One of
the better ways of communicat-
ing directly with potential stu-
dents is to talk to them through
the soaps and other programs
they watch.”

Like almost all British univer-
sities, Cambridge and its rival
Oxford are government-funded,
and. under pressure to become
more inclusive. The government
wants half of all young people
to attend college by 2010, which
means universities need to target
all economic backgrounds.

What better way than through
the travails of characters on
“RastEnders,” “Coronation
Street” and “Emmerdale” — set
respectively, in a gritty London
neighborhood, a:scruffy Man-
chester district and a farming vil-
lage.

In some ways Oxford and
Cambridge — elegant, affluent
universities known collectively

as “Oxbridge” — resemble U.S. ©

Ivy League schools, which have
long tried to attract minority and
less well-off students through

scholarships and outreach pro-.

grams. Several elite U.S, col-
leges, including Harvard and
Yale, have set family income
thresholds below which students
pay no tuition — $45,000 at Yale

and $60,000 at Hatvard for stu-

dents entering this fall.,

“Yale is eager to have as much
diversity as possible, and that
includes socio-economic diver-
sity,”

said spokeswoman Gila »

Reinstein. More than 40 percent
of Yale’s students now get finan-
cial aid and the number is steadi-
ly rising — evidence of more stu-
dents from less well-off back-
grounds. ,

But Harvard and Yale don’t
occupy quite the same central
social perch as Oxbridge, whose
graduates account for 78 percent
of Britain’s High Court judges,
42 percent of its top politicians
and 56 percent of its senior jour-
nalists, according to education
charity the Sutton Trust.

And while 90 percent of
British students attend state
high schools, Oxford anda

Cambridge draw only about -

half their student body from
there.

Many in Britain’s poorer
neighborhoods still view attend-
ing Oxford or Cambridge as an
impossible dream.

“The money definitely puts
me off,” said Matt Ryan, a t6-
year-old who attends a state
high school in Hampshire in

southern England and hopes to â„¢

study engineering at Cam-
bridge. “I think a lot of people
are put off because Oxford and
Cambridge are the best of the
best. But if any old person could
get in, there’d be no point.” ~

The elitist image is. unfair,
according to university officials.

University administrators
point out that Oxford and Cam-
bridge are not more expensive
than less-esteemed. universities,
because tuition fees are capped
by law at about $5,350 per year.
Ethnic minority students are not
underrepresented — they make
up 16 percent ‘of the student
body at Cambridge, and 13 per-
cent at Oxford, a slightly larger
proportion than i in society asa
whole.

“There’s a perception gap

between reality and how we’ve ~

been perceived previously and
that takes time to:change,” Hay:
man said:

The stone buildings and ele-
gant spires of Oxbridge have
provided the backdrop for
many films and TV shows, from
historical drama “Chariots of

9

Fire,” set in Cambridge, to

Oxford- based detective series

“Inspector ’N Morse.”

m BAGHDAD



SALAM DAWOOD sat in his car stuck in traf-
fic. A mother and her two sons shuffled among the
vehicles, begging for money when a roadside bomb
exploded, according to the Associated Press.

The toll was low by Baghdad standards: Dawood
and another man were dead. The mother, her sons
and five others were wounded, according to police
and hospital officials.

But Tuesday’s blast — a bomb hidden under a
pedestrian bridge — represents the lingering perils
in a city slowly emerging from years of almost
unchecked violence.

Small scale bombings and shootings persist in the
capital — each a reminder that the war is not over
and that Baghdad remains a place where no trip is
routine and residents are still guided by precau-
tions.

Most won’t drive at night. Many try to avoid
heavily clogged streets, remembering that suicide
bombers and other attackers intent on killing large
numbers of civilians favor traffic j Jars or congested
areas.

Baghdad is the key to stability in Iraq as the cen-
ter of government and as a potential symbol of rec-
onciliation among rival groups. This flagship role,
however, also makes it coveted ground for militias

_ and insurgents fighting efforts to fully restore

order.

The U.S. military warns consistently that the
security gains, though dramatic, are not irreversible
and that the relative calm is fragile.

Dawood was two miles from his office in central
Baghdad’s Khilani Square where he worked as a
civil engineer when the bomb exploded. It was
stashed near a police post, although it was unclear
whether that was the target.

The blast killed him and Hameed Miziel, a 37-

_ year-old laborer, according to officials who spoke

on condition of anonymity because they were not
allowed to talk to-the media.

Moments before the blast, mechanic Qassim
Mohammed jumped out of a minibus, deciding to
walk the rest of the way to his shop despite the
punishing Baghdad sun. None of those who stayed
in the bus was hurt.

“I saw the fire of the eenineon and two women
fell on the street. Then, I found myself at the hospi-
tal with wounds to my right shoulder and leg and ~

- shrapnel wounds on my face,” he said later at a
-nearby hospital. The mother, who gave her name

only as “Umm Mohammed” or “mother of
Mohammed,” said she chose to beg in that area —
a busy intersection lined with car and generator
repair shops — because she thought it was safe.

“T used to beg in different areas, but recently I
came to this intersection because I thought it was
safe there. Thank God, my injury and my sons’
were not serious,” the 36-year-old widow said from
the hospital where she was treated for a leg wound.

In Baghdad, however, safe is a relative term.

USS. and Iraqi officials do not routinely release
figures on the number of bombs that explode each

‘month in Baghdad, citing security.

According to Iraqi police, however, at least five
small bombs explode on average each month in the
area where the bombing occurred Tuesday: near

- the intersection on the eastern side of the Tigris
River. Less than two weeks ago, a pair of bombs

exploded:almost simultaneously near the intetgec-
tion, killing three civilians.

Hi MUNICH, German ;



WOMEN typically get heart
disease much later than men, but
not if they smoke, researchers
said Tuesday, according to the
Associated Press.

In fact, women who smoke
have heart attacks nearly 14
years earlier than women who

reported in a study presented to
the European Society of Cardi-

so dramatic; male smokers have
heart attacks about six years ear-
lier than men who don’t smoke.

“This is not a minor differ- -

ence,” said Dr. Silvia Priori, a
cardiologist at the Scientific Insti-
tute in Pavia, Italy. “Women
need to realize they are losing
much more than men when they
smoke,” she said. Priori was not
connected to the research.

Dr. Morten Grundtvig and
colleagues from the Innlandet
Hospital Trust in Lillehammer,
Norway, based their study on
data from 1,784 patients admit-
ted for a first heart attack at a

hospital in Lillehammer.: ©“

Their study found that the
men on average had their first
heart attack at age 72 if they did-
n’t smoke, and at 64 if they did.

Women in the study had their
first heart attack at age 81 if they
didn’t smoke, and at age 66 if
they did.

After adjusting for other heart
risk factors like blood pressure,

- cholesterol and diabetes,

reseatchers found that the dif-
ference for women was about 14
years and for men, about six
years.

Previous studies looking at a
possible gender difference have
been inconclusive.

Doctors have long suspected

‘that female hormones protect

women against heart disease. :
Estrogen is thought to raise the ::
levels of good cholesterol as well :
as enabling blood vessel walls :
to relax more easily, thus low- :
ering the chances of a blockage. :

Nancy Pelosi visits
Hiroshima atomic
bomb memorial

BB HIROSHIMA, Japan



U.S. House Speaker Nan-
cy Pelosi on Tuesday
became the highest-ranking
sitting American official to
visit ground zero of the
world’s first atomic bomb-
ing.

The Democrat, who came
to this western port city for a
two-day annual gathering of
Group of Eight legislative .
heads, joined other speak-
‘ers in paying their respects
at a memorial to the
Hiroshima bombing. One by
one, each bowed, then laid
flowers at a white, arch-
shaped monument contain-
ing the names of more than
200,000 victims of the
nuclear blast.

No serving U.S. president
or vice president has ever
visited Hiroshima. As speak-
er of the House of Repre-
sentatives, Pelosi is second .
in line to the presidency

' after U.S. Vice President

Dick Cheney.

Former U.S. President
Jimmy Carter stopped by
the memorial in 1984, after
his term, asa private citizen.

Yohei Kono, leader of
Japan’s House of Represen-
tatives, said no decisions
were made during the meet-
ing on peace and disarma-
ment, but he emphasized the
symbolic importance of dis-
cussing the future of nuclear
weapons in the city.

“The fact that they all
came to Hiroshima has sig-
nificant meaning,” said
Kono after the group’s day-
long meeting Tuesday.
~“T hope that even more
international political lead-
ers come to: Hiroshima and
Nagasaki and see with their
own eyes, so that they will
be able to strengthen their
resolve for disarmament and
nuclear disarmament going

Pelosi said nothing to
reporters after the ceremo-
ny, a possible reflection of
the lingering sensitivity that
surrounds the history of
Hiroshima.

Americans and others
continue to debate whether
the decision to use the
nuclear bomb was a prag-
matic one that hastened the
war’s end or a brutal, unnec-
essary crime against human-
ity. ;

An estimated 140,000 peo-
ple were killed instantly or
died within a few months
after an American B-29
bomber dropped its lethal
payload on Aug. 6, 1945.
Tens of thousands more died
from radiation poisoning in
the years following.

Three days later on Aug.
9, 1945, the U.S. dropped a
second nuclear bomb on the
city of Nagasaki, killing
some 80,000 people. Japan
surrendered'on Aug. 15,

- ending World War II.

Japan adopted a pacifist

constitution after the war
and has since become one of
the world’s staunchest cru-
saders against nuclear pro-
liferation.
_ For any government offi-
cial visiting Hiroshima, a
statement expressing sym-
pathy could “get taken with-
in the American political
context as some sort of crit-
icism of the decision itself
and thereby extension fight-
ing a good war, a just.war,”
said James J. Orr, chair of
the East Asian Studies
Department at Bucknell
University.

making news in their
neighbourhoods. Perhaps

good cause, campaigning

A DIRECTOR is a person
appointed by the shareholders
to manage a company.

Two general types
of Directors:

Executive Director “
A director who works full-
time in.a company and is
' responsible for the daily opera-
tions, strategic planning, man-
agement and business develop-
ment of a company.

Non-Executive Director
_ A director who does not
work full-time in a company but
attends board meetings and
gives advice to the Board of
Directors.

There is no legal distinction
between an executive director
and a non-executive director.
Both executive and non-exec-
utive directors have the same
legal duties, responsibilities and
potential liabilities.

While the Companies Act
1992 and the International Busi-
ness Companies Act 2000 do

_ not specifically define a ‘direc-
_ tor’, only an ‘officer’ of.a com-
pany, both Acts do legislatively

~ reinforce the general fiduciary
duties of a director to manage
the company, act honestly, in
good faith, and in the best inter-
ests of the company, subject toa -
unanimous shareholder agree-
ment and/or the Memorandum :
and Articles of Association of
the company. ;

Directors are also required
to exercise a duty of care, dili- |
gence and skill that a reason-
ably prudent person would

. exercise in such a position,
whether as an executive director
responsible for the daily opera-
tion and management of the
company, Or as a non-executive
director, acting independently
of the actual day-to-day man-
agement of the company.

As fiduciaries, directors have
a legal duty to act in good faith,

Bahamas tourism
dealt further blow

THE Bahamian tourism
industry’s efforts to further pen-
etrate the European market
have suffered a blow on the air-
lift front, after UK-based tour
operator First Choice blamed
falling demand and profits for
ending its Bahamas service.

First Choice operated fort-
nightly flights to the Bahamas
during the summer, departing
from Manchester, but will shut
this service in October:

First Choice told British web
site Travel Weekly that “as is

usual business practice for any
tour operator, First Choice con-
tinually evaluates the perfor-
mance of its destinations, ensur-
ing that it understands where it
is performing well.

“Unfortunately, a lack of
demand for Bahamas holidays
has greatly decreased the prof-
itability of this destination.”

In the past, First Choice
offered Bahamas holidays from
$1,471.

The operator offered stays at

five New Providence and Par-

adise Island properties, includ-
ing Atlantis, Sandals Royal
Bahamian, the Paradise Island
Harbour Resort, SuperClubs
Breezes and the RIU Paradise
Island.

First Choice will continue to
run programmes in seven other
Caribbean destinations includ-
ing Jamaica, Barbados, the
Dominican Republic, Aruba
and Cuba, indicating that the

Bahamas is becoming increas- .

ingly uncompetitive in the
European market.

Government urged to hold-off
on EPA agreement signing

& By CARA BRENNEN-
BETHEL
Business Reporter

THE main Bahamian pres-
sure group opposing the Eco-
nomic Partnership Agreement
(EPA) yesterday said it was
unimpressed by this nation’s
services offer, and urged the
Government to hold-off on
signing the deal with the Euro-
pean Union (EU) to focus on
trade relations with the US.

Bahamians Agitating for a
Referendum on Free Trade
(BARF) will next week join
other EPA opponents in Bar-
bados for a demonstration
against the proposed agreement
between the EU and CARI-
FORUM region.

Paul Moss, a leading BARF
member, told Tribune Business
yesterday that having seen the
recently-released EPA services
offer for the Bahamas, the
organisation was not impressed
and none of its concerns have
been allayed.

“Tam not impressed with the
services offer. It is just that: An
offer to serve. The Bahamas
was never in control, as evi-

denced by the fact that they do ~

jot even know when they are’

public, itself providing insur-
ance coverage to mitigate the
risk a loan would not be repaid
if the borrower died.
“We're launching a variety of
products and expanding on a

number of fronts,” Ms Her- .

manns said of Family Guardian,
the wholly-owned subsidiary of
BISX-listed FamGuard CoS
ration.

“We want to remain relevant
in the market today and address
the issues that are out there.
What we are trying to do is
expand the product base to
meet the demands from our
customers and the country at
last.”

That has involved the cre-
ation of two new Family
Guardian subsidiaries, FG
Financial, which will provide
pensions and investments ser-
vices, and FG Capital Markets,
which will deliver brokerage
and corporate advisory services.

In addition, - Family
Guardian’s three investment
fund sub-funds - the FG Finan-
cial Preferred Income Fund, the

going to sign it,” Mr Moss said.

He added that BARF had no,

intentions of slowing down its
protest against the EPA.

“Up . and down _ the
Caribbean, organisers are
preparing to demonstrate in
Barbados next week to protest
against governments like the
Bahamas that have demon-
strated their arrogance in this
matter. We, in BARF, will be
there to register our extreme
disapproval of our governmen-
t’s decision to sign this re-
colonising agreement,” Mr
Moss said.

He added that they would
like the Government to recon-
sider the EPA for five basic rea-
sons:

* The fact that the US is the
Bahamas’ most important trad-
ing. partner, and the EU is the
smallest

* The EU is in the process of ©
negotiating with South Ameri-

ca. a
* Several economists have

. condemned this agreement, and

have urged CARIFORUM
countries not to.sign.

* The Bahamas should wait
until after the US presidential
election, and determine the

trading policies of the new,,

Gorn en Creditor Lite launch

* FG Financial Diversified Fund |

and the FG Financial Growth

' Fund - had all been structured .

with diversity in mind, mean-
ing that the returns they deliv-

ered would not be “wiped out” -

by the Bahamian equities mar-
ket decline.

Ms Hermanns explained that
the equity investments made by
the three sub-funds were
“mixed in” with other securi-

ties.and investments, helping to .

dilute the equities market
downturn, which to date has
wiped at least 12 per cent off
the BISX All-Share Index.

The FG Financial Preferred

_ Income Fund is invested pri-

marily in fixed-income securi-
ties, such as government bonds,
mortgages and certificates of
deposit; the FG Financial

_ Diversified Fund is invested in a

mix of equities and fixed
income securities; and the FG
Financial Growth Fund is 75
per cent weighted towards equi-
ties.

With the latter fund, Ms Her-°

manns explained that the 25 per
cent held in other investment
assets would help “offset the
negative impact of the market

administration

* The need to put in place an
alternative means of raising tax-
es to replace the customs duties
that the Bahamas would lose
by signing the EPA.

Mr Moss said he had always

advocated income tax-as the pri-
mary means of taxation. On the
possibility of adopting a value-
added tax (VAT), Mr Moss said
that form. of taxation was not
sufficient in itself to meet the
country’s needs and would need
to be combined with, another
form of duty.

He added that Prime Minister
Hubert Ingraham had been
deafeningly quiet on the mat-
ter, and said he needed to
make some sort of statement to
the Bahamian people, consid-
ering the significance of the
EPA.

Minister Micklyn Seymour
supported: Mr Moss’s claims,
and called on the Christian
Council to .speak out on the
matter. |: :

He said he wanted the Gov-
ernment to point out any draw-
backs to signing the EPA to
help Bahamians get a clearer

'. picture of what the agreement
would mean... :

downturn. It is better positioned
to provide a return”.

“We are gaining customers
daily. We are getting a lot of
interest from the public,” Ms

Hermanns said. “On our pen- |.

sions business, our brokerage
business, we are seeing the
numbers grow.”

Meanwhile, the three: new.

products launched by Family
Guardian in its Home Service
division had been,“very well
received” by the market. These
were a death benefits policy to
cover final funeral expenses; a
family policy, to cover .the

whole family; and an endow- se

ment-type investment policy. ©

“They were launched at the
beginning of July and we are
running the numbers now,” Ms
Hermanns said. “There is‘a
demand for the products that
were launched, and we’re antic-
ipating the growth of the busi-
ness from that angle.”

Ms Hermanns said Family
Guardian’s Exuma branch
office was set to open this
month, and the company was
also looking to expand its gen-
eral insurance agency sub-
sidiary.

Re CRT ee |
Bahamas-based dealer takes Emerald Bay lead

FROM page 1B

only complete the purchase, but also
complete the full build-out of Emerald
Bay and take the resort property for-
ward. It was then that Mr Weisfisch
stepped up to the plate and took the
lead role.

Minister

Prime Minister Hubert Ingraham is
said not to have been keen on the
Weisfisch proposal, but is thought to
have been encouraged to reconsider it
via an intense lobbying effort mount-
ed by the Israeli trader’s attorneys.

Mr Weisfisch is understood to have
been keen on hotel ownership in the
Bahamas for some time, Tribune Busi-
ness having revealed several years ago
how he was considering a project on

Hotel Corporation-owned land in
Eleuthera with his brother, Amir.

That, though, seemed to stall after _

the two brothers had a bitter falling
out that resulted in numerous legal
battles and complex cross-border liti-
gation in the courts of the Bahamas
and the UK.

Emerald Bay has acted as Exuma’s
main economic engine, attracting
additional foreign direct investment
to the island. It employs almost 500
staff, and features an 18-hole Greg
Norman Golf Course, two restau-
rants, three pools, spa, six meeting
rooms and 450-person capacity ball-
room.

Other investment projects previ-
ously attracted to the Emerald Bay
vicinity include the resort’s Pinnacle
Entertainment-managed $5 million
casino, the $110 million Grand Isle
Villas development, plus the 80/50

fractional ownership component.

A shopping complex has also
opened at Emerald Bay, the anchor
retailer being the Emerald Isle super-
market. The complex also includes
businesses such as Scotiabank and
Mail Boxes Etc.

general in the Ministry of Tourism

with responsibility for planning,

investment and business develop-
ment, warned last year that the Four
Seasons needed to become a sus-
tainable, profitable resort, and the
Bahamas could not afford for it to
fail.

He said then that factors such as
building costs being about 40 per cent
higher per square foot than they are
in Nassau, had retarded Emerald

Bay’s growth and kept it from reach-
ing the development its owners had
previously predicted.

Mr Johnson said of Emerald Bay:

“The property was conceived to be a
mixed-use project, with 185 keys
under the Four Seasons brand. The
vast majority of the property was to
be for mixed-use, condos and hun-
dreds of lots sold for significant fam-
ily homes.
_ “After four years of operation,
they have developed very little of the
sold inventory. There’s been a lot of
trading of the land by the owners,
but the cost of building is prohibi-
tive.

“The buildings costs, the numbers
suggest, are in excess of 40 per cent
higher per square foot to build.”

Costs to construct such properties
in Nassau were $500 per square foot,

while in Exuma the price was $800
per square foot.

Mr Johnson also underlined the
impact the relatively high building
costs on Exuma, compared to Nas-
sau, were having on Emerald Bay’s
margins. He pointed out that con-
crete there cost $200 per yard, where-
as in Nassau it cost $125 per yard.

“The hotel, with a golf course and
spa, as a 185-room resort of Four
Seasons’ calibre, can only be prof-
itable if it has a much larger customer
base outside those rooms,” Mr John-
son said.

Resort

He added that the resort needed to
build out to 700-800 units to get close
to profitability, whereas it was cur-

_ rently closer to 300-400 units.

PROPERTY FEATURES

Black & Veatch International
has noted instances where indi-
vidual management plans or
practices could be enhanced to
meet US Environmental Pro-
tection Agency or Florida
requirements and standards,
[the Albany developers] and
their consultants have devel-
oped an EMP that adequately

_ addresses the key activities that

are anticipated to present risks
of environmental impacts and

degradation.”

The Black & Veatch report

.said Albany, whose major

shareholders are Lyford Cay
billionaire Joe Lewis, plus
golfers Tiger Woods and Ernie

- Els, had committed to provide

BEST with more plans and
information “at some point in

_ the future”.

This included plans for “an
overhead mist system”,
designed to combat insects and
odour, which are supposed to
be submitted to BEST a mini-

‘mum of 90 days prior to the

start of Phase II construction.

BEST is also supposed to
review and approve a sand
nourishment programme, and
receive plans for Albany’s
Phase II storm water drainage
plans.

In addition, Albany had com-
mitted to informing BEST of
any blasting work required “at
least two weeks’ prior to the
scheduled date, “to enable suf-
ficient time for dialogue and
agreement on this issue”.

Christopher Anand, Albany’s
managing partner, told Tribune
Business in an interview that

b

the project had already com-
plied with one suggestion made
by Black & Veatch in its EMP
review, having named Rochelle
Newbold as the single person
for ensuring all the develop-
ment’s activities met the EMP
requirements.

“My overall view of this envi-
ronmental process is that both
governments held us to the
highest standards,” Mr Anand
said. “That is demonstrated by
the volume of evaluation and
testing to get an Environmental
Impact Assessment approved,
which was contingent on an
EMP approval.”.

He added that under the for-
mer Christie administration,

apart from BEST and Black &

Veatch as its third party review-

‘ er, the then-Prime Minister had

his own environmental consul-
tant, meaning the’ developers’
environmental submissions
were reviewed by three sepa-
rate parties.

“A full and thorough evalua-
tion was conducted,” Mr Anand
said. “This report really vali-
dates what I’ve maintained all
along. We did not sign a Heads
of Agreement until this process
was complete. And it was sub-
ject to an EMP that took two
years to complete.

“We’ve made major design
changes to make this project as
environmentally friendly as pos-
sible.”

Among the changes outlined
by Mr Anand was Albany’s
decision not to proceed with its

canals.in the northern part of
its 565-acre development site,
while the project will be the
‘anchor customer’ for the $15
million wastewater treatment
plant being developed by its
affiliate, New Providence
Development Company.

Mr Anand said Albany had

‘also reduced the amount of

lakes for its golf course from 60

_acres to 20 acres.

To line the golf course lakes,
he said Albany was using a
more expensive material,
sourced from Europe, that had
a 99 per cent success rate in pre-
venting water seepage and pen-
etration. The standard material
used in the Bahamas, Mr
Anand said, often leaked.

He added that Albany was
also using sheet piling in its
marina “at a considerable cost,’
millions of dollars. We’re spend-
ing millions and millions of
extra dollars” on environmental
sustainability.

Mr Anand said that instead
of depleting New Providence’s
water table and resources, as
Albany had been accused of,
the developers were actually
protecting it by using grey. water
- a by-product of the wastewater
treatment process - to irrigate
the golf course.

“There is water under our
lands, but they’re abandoned
wellfields, as they’ve been over-
pumped historically. They
haven’t been producing for a
long time, and the water Sup-
ply has been Seperate My

Pe eee errs
| $1.8bn Mayaguana project still moving

Bye nlt ene



@ By CARA BRENNEN-
BETHEL
Tribune Business Reporter



WORK on the $1.8 billion dol-
lar joint venture project for
Mayaguana appears to be on track

and is continuing, the deputy prime -.

minister told Tribune Business yes-
terday.

Brent Symonette said that as far
as he was aware, there were no con-
cerns regarding the project.

The development is a joint ven-

ture between the Government, in
the shape of the Hotel Corporation,
and the Boston-based I-Group, and
will include a mixed-use resort on
the island. Both parties own the
project through the Mayaguna
Development Company.
Although responsibility for the
development had been transferred
to the Ministry of Tourism during
the last Cabinet reshuffle, Mr
Symonette said that from all
accounts things were progressing
well, particularly following the

pounding the southern Bahamas
has taken with Tropical Storm Han-
na.

Mr Symonette said workmen
were still working on the island, and
a shipment of building supplies
recently arrived in Nassau to be tak-
en to Mayaguana.

He added that Sir Baltron Bethel,
the Hotel Corporation’s managing
director, was recently in Boston'to
meet the I- Group developers.

They were still deeply commit-

~ ted to the people of Mayaguana and

to the project, Mr Symonette said of
the developers.

During the 2008-2009 Budget
debate, Mr Symonette said work
on the development would be done
on a reduced scope due to deterio-
rating worldwide economic condi-
tions.

The development covers some
10,000 acres and includes an air-
port, utilities, marina village, resi-
dential lots, private villas and con-
dos, a boutique resort and nature
preserves.

“T don’t see us being directly

the Americans,” Mr Smith told
Tribune Business.

“The Bahamas doesn’t have
the kind of companies ‘that
would be under the watch the
Obama Bill prescribes. And
because of our TIEA, we’ve
met the IRS criteria for the

“What more could you be

ing their earnings, when we
don’t have any double tax
treaties at all, and are not the

headquarters for large compa-_

nies.
“And if the Americans are
looking for records regarding
their citizens, they can get them
through existing law.” .
Mr Smith said that during his

. time in government office, he

understood that the US had
submitted two to three requests
under the TIEA for informa-
tion on Bahamian financial ser-
vices industry clients who had
been indicted in the US.
“They haven’t really used it
that much,” Mr Smith said of
the TIEA. “Many of our finan-

That would be a powerful

The diplomatic break follows
a five-day war and Moscow's

Boeing workers vote on contract

m@ By TIM KLASS
Associated Press Writer

SEATTLE (AP) — The
workers who assemble The
Boeing Company’s commercial
planes and some of its key
components prepared to vote
Wednesday on the company’s
“best and final” contract offer,
with union leaders recom-
mending they reject the deal
and go out on strike.

Despite $5,000 in signing
bonuses and raises averaging
11 per cent over the proposal’s
three-year span, leaders of the
International Association of
Machinists and Aerospace
Workers have said the offer
falls short.

The contract covers’ more\

than 27,000 commercial air-
plane production workers in
three states — about 25,000
workers in the Puget Sound
region represented by the
union’s District Lodge 751;
about 1,500 in District 24 in
Gresham, Oregon, a Portland
suburb; and about 750 in Dis-
trict 70 in Wichita, Kan.

Key issues include pay, out-
sourcing and retirement and
health care benefits.

On Wednesday, members
are scheduled to cast. two bal-
lots: one to accept or reject
Boeing’s latest offer and anoth-
er on whether to begin a strike.

A simple majority is required
to reject the contract, and a

two-thirds majority is needed
to call a strike, which would
trigger a work stoppage at
12:01am Thursday, when the
current contract expires.

Results of the vote are
expected Wednesday night.

. The average Boeing machin-
ist earns $27 an hour, or about
$56,000 a year, before overtime
and incentives.

In 2005, about 18,400
machinists in the Pacific North-
west and Wichita, Kansas,
struck for four weeks, forcing
the company to halt commer-

- cial airplane production.

The machinists assemble
Boeing’s commercial planes

and some key components.

Gary N Chaison, an indus-

trial relations professor at
Clark University in Worcester,
Mass., said he had been fol-
lowing developments closely
and rated the possibility of a
strike at about 50-50.

“The parties are going right
to the edge of the cliff,” Chai-
son said.

“This is a situation that’s ripe
for miscalculation.”

Boeing has about an eight-
year backlog of deliveries and
would lose as much as $100
million a day in deferred rev-

‘enue as well as further delays in

delivery of the new 787 com-
mercial jet, analysts said,
adding that riveters, electri-
cians, painters and other work-
ers would be hard-pressed to

@ By JOYCE M
ROSENBERG .
AP Business Writer

NEW YORK (AP) — With
gasoline prices expected to
remain uncomfortably high,
many small businesses are let-
ting some of their staffers work
at home. And some owners are
discovering that allowing
employees to telecommute can

‘require a different manage-.

ment style, and,some basic
trust.

Having telecommuters can
be challenging for a boss who’s
used to having everyone in the
office in plain sight — and who

“now has much less control over

someone who’s working in
pajamas with “The View” on
TV in the background. Or a

staffer who takes time away ©

from work during the day to
start cooking dinner or walk
the dog.

Owners can find themselves
worrying about the work get-
ting done, although it should
be clear from telecommuters’
output whether their produc-
tivity is suffering, or whether
they’re meeting deadlines.

Lloyd Princeton, who owns a

‘consulting firm with offices on

both coasts, has seven employ-
ees, including one who
telecommutes.

Princeton said he wonders
about what his home-based
staffer is doing.

“The biggest issue I have is
tracking time and knowing
said
Princeton, the. president of
Design Management Co. “The
doubt starts to happen when
he has offsite meetings — var-
ious doctor appointments or
the vet.”

But, Princeton said, “the gets
the work done. He does quali-
ty work for clients.”

Princeton said he tries to
find a balance in general with

his staffers —
attention to detail, but I do my
best not to, micromanage” —
but a telecommuting situation
presents more of a problem.

“It welcomes and invites the
doubt,” he said.

Of course, onsite workers
may come in late after a doc-

tor’s appointment or run per- .

sonal errands during the after-
noon just as Princeton’s work-
er does. But for many owners,
well, it just seems different
when they can see employees
coming and going.

Companies

Still, there are whole com-
panies and even industries that
now rely on employees who
work at, home, such as cus-
tomer service or telemarket-
ing firms.

And many use high-tech

tools, including conferencing:

and networking systems, to
ease communications between
telecommuters and the office,
arid some use software to help
monitor workflows.

Steve Lundin, who owns
BIGFrontier Communications
Group, a Chicago-based public
relations firm, has learned to
shrug off the doubts.

“You're trusting people to
do the work” Lundin said. “At
the end of the day, there is
some fluff time you’re paying
for, but what you bill out for is
far more than what you’re Pay:
ing them:”

_ But Lundin does see some
downsides to telecommuting:

“One of, the minuses is addi- .
tional management of people.”
He speaks to his telecom:

muters more often over the
phone, and that takes up time.

Lundin noted that his.con-
tact with onsite workers may
be just as non-face-to-face:as it
is with those who are telecom-
muting, so the lack of physical

“I tend to pay ,

contact isn’t a drawback.

“I talk to these people sev-
eral times a day,” he said of
telecommuters. “When I had
them in the office before,
they’d be in their:own office
down the hall and we did most
of our communicating by e-
mail.”

Tory Johnson, CEO of
Women For Hire, a New
York-based recruitment ser-
vices firm, finds that telecom-
muters can end‘up being out ©
the loop, a problem that can
occur no matter how hard the
entire staff works at keeping
everyone in touch. There can
be bruised feelings, whether
the staffer is missing out.on
something work-related, or
even a bit of gossip that every-

-one else was sharing.

That kind of disconnect is
one. of the downsides of
telecommuting in her firm.
“Some of our best ideas, our
most fun conversations come
from spontaneity, working in
a big open office and chitchat,”
Johnson said.

“We are sensitive to the fact

that some people work in dif-

ferent locations, but even with
that sensitivity, there are often
difficulties,” she said. Still, she
noted that her staffers have
chosen to work at home, so
“the onus is on you to maintain
communications.”

Some telecommuters — par-
ticularly if they live quite a'dis-
tance away from the office —
never show up in person, and
that can work quite well for
many companies. Lundin,
however, said he’s concerned
about his telecommuters los-

ing touch with the rest of the

workers.

His solution -is to require
them to put in some face time.
on Mondays and Fridays —
which in effect means there are
no full-time telecommuters i in
his company.

@ By MARTIN
CRUTSINGER -

AP Economics Writer

WASHINGTON (AP) —

Orders to US factories rose by
a larger-than-expected amount
in July as demand for com-
mercial aircraft, heavy machin-

ery and iron and steel all post-

ed solid gains.

The Commerce Depattment
reported Wednesday that new
orders increased by 1.3 per
cent in July; much stronger
than the 0.8 per cent increase
economists had been expect-
ing.

The July advance follows an
even bigger 2.1 per cent
increase in June and represents

Re) M Celato EW)

the fifth straight rise in orders.

Manufacturers have seen a
sharp slowdown in the US
economy offset by strong gains
in foreign demand, helped by a
weaker dollar which makes
their products more competi-
tive overseas.

The July strength was led by
a 28.1 per cent jump in com-
mercial aircraft, which
rebounded from a 21.3 per
cent decline in this volatile cat-
egory in the previous month.

Orders in all transportation
categories rose by 3.2 per cent
in July, the best showing in five
months. It was the second
straight month that orders for
motor vehicles rose, increas-
ing by 0.6 per cent in July fol-
lowing an even bigger. 3.2 per
cent June advance, __

The gains were viewed as
temporary, however, given that
automakers are struggling with
a weak economy and plunging

demand for once-popular

models because of high fuel
prices.:

Excluding transportation,
factory orders would have
risen by one per cent, slightly
below the 1.5 per cent econo-

Orders for ineaets 2
items expected to last at least
three years, rose 1.3 per cent in
July, unchanged from the pre-
liminary estimate the govern-
ment made last week. Orders
for nondurable goods, prod-
ucts such as fuel, food and
chemicals, increased 1.2 per
cent in July.

A number of categories
showed big gains in the month,
too.

Demand for iron and steel
jumped by five per cent, orders
for machinery rose 4.1 per cent
with demand for construction
machinery soaring by 17.9 per
cent. :

Much of this strength reflects
a boom in.US exports, the
standout performer while the
rest of the economy has been
hit by the worst slump in hous-
ing in decades and a severe
credit crunch.

But some economists have

_ expressed worries about how

long the export boom can last
given spreading weakness in
key overseas markets in
Europe and Japan.

Also, the dollar, which had _

been on a long slide, has come
off its recent lows, which could
translate into less of a price
advantage for American prod-
ucts against foreign goods.

_ The government reported
last week that the economy
expanded at an annual rate of
3.3 per cent in the April-June |
quarter, more than three times
the growth rate turned in dur-
ing the first three months of
this year.

The concern is that a slow-
down in exports will dampen
manufacturing activity and
consumer spending will falter
as the effect of $92 billion in
economic stimulus payments
begins to wear off, however.

A closely watched gauge of
manufacturing activity was
down slightly in August at 49.9,
compared to a reading of 50.0
in July, according to a report
Tuesday from the Institute for
Supply.Management. Readings
above 50 are considered a sig-
nal that the manufacturing
economy is expanding and

_ readings below 50 are seen as a

signal that manufacturing! is

Last-minute shopping rush

as Hanna and I

lm By TANEKA THOMPSON.

Tribune Staff Reporter
tthompson@tribunemedia.net

RESIDENTS of the north-
eastern Bahamas were stock-
ing up on last minute storm
supplies yesterday, as they
braced for the double

onslaught of Tropical Storm .

Hanna and Hurricane Ike.

Hanna was expected to_

strengthen into.a category one
hurricane by late today or
tomorrow and make land fall
on the north-western islands
of the Bahamas by tonight.
Hurricane Ike is expected to
follow on Hanna’s heels as
early as Monday.
Residents of New Provi-
dence who spoke to The Tri-
bune yesterday seemed to
have a relaxed approach to
their storm preparations, while
people in the Family Islands
were said to be “in high gear".
'. When The Tribune visited
Kelly’s Home Centre yester-
day afternoon, Eleanor But-
ler, of Stapledon-Gardens, was

lanterns to

hurricane shopping. I’m just
here to get the extra things

that I need,” she said.

Ms Butler said that she was

not too worried about the
damage Hanna may cause, as
. She planned to install her

storm shutters by. this after-
noon. -

Eastern Road resident Ayc-
er Ginter said even though she

‘feels that her home is.secure,

her family may evacuate from
the water front when the storm
hits today. She said that she
did not expect the slow-mov-

_ing Hanna to cause a lot of

damage, but said she is wor-

ried about the other storm sys- -
‘tems following close behind.

Grove resident Ivan Major
said he plans to seek refuge
with his family if heavy flood-
ing occurs. —

schools and businesses were
up and running as normal,
Administrator Cox said, but
he was unsure if they will open
today. The settlement of 600
was ‘in a “wait and see mode”
and will activate storm shel-
ters today if deemed neces-

‘sary, said Mr Cox.

Other parts of the Northern
Bahamas were gearing up for
the storm as well.

Chief Councilor ‘Lloyd
Edgecombe said that in Alice
Town, Bimini, everything was
business as usual as the island
was not yet experiencing any
inclement weather.

In tht Berry Islands, Deputy
Chief Councilor Kevin. Wal-
lace said that in Bullock’s Har-
bor in particular , people have’
moved their preparations into
“high gear”, trying to make
sure their properties are _
secure.

“There are two areas in Bul-
locks Harbour — those persons
who are in low-lying areas, we
are trying to get them to use
the shelter or go to family.
Hopefully the initial prepara-
tions will be able to sustain us

(during) both storms,” he said.

‘impac

on the malar Bahamas

@ By NATARIO McKENZIE

ISLANDS in the south-east-
ern Bahamas were reportedly
only “minimally” impacted by
the passage of Tropical Storm
Hanna. .

The Tribune yesterday con-
tacted officials in the islands of
Inagua and Mayaguana, as
well as in Crooked Island,
Long Cay and Acklins to get
an assessment of the damage
caused by the tropical storm.

-According to Preston Cun-
ningham, island administrator
on Inagua, a few blown-off

roof shingles and a couple of |

fallen trees were the extent of
the storm’s impact on that
island.

“We weathered ‘the storm
pretty good.

“We were out of electricity
for a couple: of days, but we
have had electricity from
Tuesday evening.. Water was
off and on:but that is a prob-
lem we have always had here
in Inagua.

“We lost some shingles
from a couple of roofs here in
Inagua. We lost quite a few
from the administrator’s com-
plex roof, ‘a‘couple of trees
fell, but that was basically it
for the most part,” Mr Cun-
ningham said.

“We had some rain initially,
but for the last day anda half
we haven’t had much rain.’

Francita Neely, adminis-
trator for Crooked Island and

_Long Cay, told The Tribune

that her district experienced

strong winds and intermittent

rain, but no down pour..
“We haven’t had any dam-
age, just a lot of little tress and

shrubs were blown down,” she
said.

Mrs Neely added that all the
residents of Crooked Island
and Long Cay had taken the
necessary prerapnens for the
storm.

The Tribune was unable to
reach the island administrator

ifor Inagua, however, Inspector .

V Rahming, officer in-charge

of the Abraham’s Bay police -

station, reported that that
island had also only sustained:
minimal damage, such as the
loss of a few shingles and

some small tress.
According to Inspector
Rahming, the island experi-
enced a “light rain and fluc-
tuating wind gusts.”
“There wasn’t any flooding

or anything like that because

we really haven’t had much
rain. The only damages are
minimal, just some lines were
down earlier,” Inspector Rah-
ming said. Power has since

been restored to Inagua.

The island of Acklins fared
similarly, according to Con-
stable 3006 Emmanuel of the
Salina Point police station.

Mr Emmanuel said yester-
day that Acklins was experi-
encing partly cloudy condi-

‘tions, but that there had been

no flooding and only minimal
damage. =

Trevor Basden, senior
deputy director in the Depart-
ment of Meteorology attached

to NEMA, said that the

islands in the south-eastern
Bahamas were very fortunate,

‘as the nearby Turks and

Caicos Islands had been
severely impacted by Tropi-
cal Storm Hanna.

“When Hanna moved
across the eastern tip of
Mayaguana it would appear
that the eye went over Provi-
denciales and then the centre
was directly over Inagua.

“During that time, most of

the activity and rainfall was to

the east and the south of .the
centre, and, therefore
Mayaguana and Inagua were
on the western side and so
they did not receive as much

of the continuous rainfall,” Mr —

Basden said. “4

REPUBLICAN presidential nominee John
McCain’s selection of Sarah Palin as his run-
ning mate has put in question his judgment
and understanding of the importance of
national leadership.

McCain’s cynical ploy.seems to have been
an effort to win over disenchanted feminists
who had supported Hillary Clinton’s strong
campaign for the Democratic presidential

‘nomination but who have failed to embrace
the nomination of Barack Obama to top the
ticket.

Equally notable was McCain’s desire to
win over members of the evangelical right
— so influential in the Republican Party —
who have been unhappy with the choice of
McCain as their standard bearer j in the first
place.

In addition to her lack of experience, Palin

_ — governor of Alaska for two years — carries

a lot of unexpected baggage: Bristol, her 17-
year-old unmarried pregnant daughter, plus
a gubernatorial ethics problem for ordering a
public safety commissioner to sack her ex-

brother-in-law who had been involved i in. a:

divorce battle with her sister.

Palin also has some explaining to'do about
her good-government image because she has
simultaneously deplored special interest con-
gressional funding called “earmarks” while
hiring lobbyists to seek millions in federal
funds for her town in ‘Alaska.

Aides to McCain insist that. he knew of
Palin’s problems before selecting her to be his
running mate..But the facts give rise to the
conclusion that he gave very little thought
to the issue before precipitously offering her
‘a place on the ticket.

His amazing choice of “Governor who?”
has yet to be explained unless he thinks expe-

rience and an in-depth understanding of the

nation’s pressing foreign policy issues are

_ irrelevant. In view of McCain’s taunts at Oba-

ma for his questionable ability to serve as.
commander in chief, McCain is barking up a
tree. If McCain thinks he has scored a coup in
capturing the women’s vote with the choice of
Palin, I think he has displayed:an incredible
naiveté about the 20th century women’s
movement.
Obama let the women’s liberation move-
ment down when he refused to name Clinton
-as his running mate. It would have taken a
bigger man to anoint a bitter rival for the
nomination. Where’was the audacity? Instead

McCain’s running-mate pick poor reflection

Obama played it safe. His choice of Sen. -



‘ Joseph Biden of Delaware, chairman of the

Senate Foreign Relations Committee, for the
number two spot on the ticket was designed
to bolster Obama’s foreign ‘policy creden-
tials.

.There is precedent for victorious nominees
reaching out to leading rivals in order to'woo
dissidents into the fold. Presidential candidate
John F. Kennedy tapped Lyndon B. John-
son for the vice presidential slot.in 1960.

The Texas delegation to the nominating
convention had already decided that if
Kennedy made the offer it should be reject-
ed. Kennedy summoned the powerful speak-
er of the House of Representatives, Sam Ray-
burn, ‘to his hotel suite and suggested that
Rayburn. pressure Johnson to accept the nom-
ination.

Rayburn told Kennedy that Johnson pre-
ferred to remain in the Senate as’ majority .

leader. “What makes you think he will con-
tinue to be majority. leader?” Kennedy asked.

As.a result, Rayburn gathered with John-
son and the Texas delegation, telling them
Johnson should accept Kerinedy’s offer. “But

yesterday you said he should not take it,” .

they replied.

“Pm a wiser man today,”
responded.

Lady Bird Johnson was also upset about
her husband’s acceptance of the vice. presi-
dential nomination after having felt snubbed
by the Kennedys. Johnson told his wife
prophetically: “Don’t you know I’ll be one
heart beat away from the presidency?”

President Ronald Reagan picked ‘George:

Rayburn

. Herbert Walker Bush; a rival for the GOP

presidential nomination, to be his running
mate in 1980, although there was a lack of
love between them.

I came to Washington in 1942, and three
vice presidents have ascended to the high-
est office in the land since then. Harry Tru-

_ man succeeded Franklin D. Roosevelt, who

died in office in 1945 during his fourth term.
Johnson succeeded Kennedy upon his
assassination in 1963, and Gerald Ford

became president in 1974 when Richard .

Nixon resigned from office because of the
Watergate scandal. I say all this to explain

_why I think vice presidents are hugely impor-

tant in this uncertain world, a point that
appears to have eluded McCain.

THE TRIBUNE



A message to PM:
give us a realistic
cost of living

EDITOR, The Tribune.

I see much of the Bahamian
people have finally awakened.
After numerous complaints and
letters to your newspaper
regarding the corruption in our
government run utility compa-
nies, I see now they have gone
as far in nearly shutting down
businesses and putting the aver-
age man into bankruptcy with
nearly zero response from gov-
ernment. I see in this morning’s
paper a fruitless response from
Minister Neymour explaining
the high costs and that it will

come down soon. He further

explains that it cannot come
down until the present inven-
tories are used up as the cost of

these inventories has been paid

for at the higher price.

Just one question Minister:
Why is it that the surcharge
increased immediately when
world oil prices increased?
Surely BEC hasn’t bought that
fuel and has it delivered here
the following morning? So
while BEC increased the fuel

_ Surcharge immediately, they

chose to wait several months to
lower the surcharge and milk
the Bahamian public eventually
sending us back to the stone
age. The Minister also suggests
that someone has to pay, which
obviously will be us, the
Bahamian public. Once again, if

BEC can’t make a profit or.

break even with these ridicu-
lous rates (second highest in the
world!) along with an unprece-

- dented. monopoly, then there
‘can only be three reasons to

explain this situation;

1) Someone possibly “‘tiefin”, .

2). Certain people in there

must have the IQ ofa puck and ©
- are just plain stupid or

, Tesponse...

LETTERS

letters@tribunemedia.net



3) (which is the most likely)
A combination of both. The
numerous BEC and BTC
employees I speak to are only
making a few hundred dollars
per week so certainly they
aren’t receiving the funds.

Apparently government isn’t
interested in providing, nor can
it afford any relief. Well they
ran ona platform and created a
mirage budget of lower taxes

and at the end of the day taxes"

on businesses and the cost of
goods went up a minimum of
35+ per cent in this recessed
economy. It is one of the most

deceiving budgets in recent his-

tory from any administration.
Like a pack of lionesses sur-
rounding its prey we are alive
but realise the end is so very
near. Many of us always
thought private enterprise ‘and
capitalism is the enemy, but in
the end it is our own govern-

“ment and their utility cash cows

that will bury us all.

And while we are on the sub-
ject of “milking” the Bahami-
an people, I did finally hear
back from BEC. regarding my
claim. Ironically it came a few
days after my last correspon-
dence to The Editor of The Tri-

“ bune just over two weeks ago. I .

assume many of you know their
that’s right, they are
not honouring the claim. Fur-
thermore a neighbour of mine

has informed me that they

showed up to my residence to
yet again change my meter. I

‘am. assuming the increase will

be. yet another 35+ per cent, at
which a gentle humming sound

will be heard from my residence
in the near future regardless of
the law. Government utility
unions and.their “bigwigs” don’t
follow law and order, why
should any other Bahamian cit-
izen? Attached ‘is my response
to the Deputy General Manag-
er for your perusal. I find it
incredible that the government
is allowed to get away with this
and perhaps “Insight” should
take the “bull by the horns” and
expose this as-it did exposing
our profound legal profession.
’ As for recent comments by
union and certain political lead-
ers regarding the (what should
be) illegal strike(s) over the past
few weeks. I suggest the gov-
ernment take the leaders by
their word. I believe one said
he would go to jail for his union
members, well then send him
off to Fox Hill. I am quite cer-

tain as the cuffs are wrapped — .

around his wrist, quite differ-
ent demeanour will come over
him. If the government does not
act and act forcefully now we

‘will be forever held hostage and

this country will then be. at the
point of no return (at least in
my lifetime). Quite frankly if
there is a strike, I suggest all
consumers of these monopolies
cease and desist from any form

-of payment for a few months.

Oh they will cut the entire
island off, you say!... What is
the difference, we are off most
of the time now.

In the name of God and our

. Bahamaland will the PM and
‘his cabinet provide us with a

realistic cost of living.

Why are the public being held hostage?

) EDITOR, The Tribune.

I HAVE read several letters
of complaint in recent editions
of The Tribune concerning the
closure of some services at the
General Post Office because of
the malfunctioning of the air

‘ conditioning system. I assumed

that the areas affected were

’ basically Bahamas Customs, the -

package delivery area and the
BEC and National Insurance
desks. Furthermore it was my
understanding that closure is at
2.30pm. That was until today.

I happened to go to the base-
ment area of the General Post
Office at about 2pm and found
that the whole operation ‘in that
area was closed from lpm with
the exception of BEC and
National Insurance which close
at 2.30pm. Has it occurred to
anyone that the persons who
work in this area are public ser-

vants who are hired to work
from. 9am to 5pm everyday?
These public officers have half-

‘day off everyday. Is the Perma-

nent Secretary of the Ministry
of Public Personnel and the Sec-
retary to the Cabinet aware of
this?

Is anyone aware of the impli-
cations of closing this area of
the post office at 1pm every-
day? All incoming mail is
received in the basement and
all outgoing mail leaves from
this area. Mail is sorted in this
area not only for New Provi-
dence but for the Family Islands
as well. Persons who have writ-
ten in before have complained
that they could not collect pack-

cages because the package deliv- ~

ery counter was closed. That is
only a small part of the prob-
lem.

The post office has never
been noted for good and effi-

cient service. Can the whole
country be held hostage
because a few persons cannot
work in hot conditions? I am
fully aware that public servants
are often expected to work
under appalling conditions, a
circumstance that must be
changed. Can public servants
just walk off the job because it is
too hot? .

After all these weeks why has
the air conditioning system not
been fixed?

I find this to be astounding.
Another astounding fact is-that
mail originating or coming
through the United States to
the Bahamas is routed through —
Jamaica. Is there any wonder
that the mail service in the
Bahamas is so slow?

A 28-YEAR-OLD Bahamian man was arrested in Florida
in a two-day operation that netted 25 criminal illegal immi-
grants and documented street gang members.

The United States Immigration and Customs Enforcement
(ICE) branch in Fort Myers worked m conjunction with the

Collier County Sheriff’s Office to round-up the individuals on -

August 28 and August 29 in Collier County. According to a
S Immigration and Customs Enforcement press release, at
least two of those apprehended were documented gang mem-

bers affiliated with gangs La Raza and Sur 13. One was also a

‘Emanuel Alce, 28, a Bahamian, was among those picked

Alce was ordered to be deported by an immigration judge ~
in January, but somehow avoided expulsion from the country.

Roker recently took NBC net-
work. viewers on an explo-
ration of Bahamian plantation
history as he retraced his
Bahamian heritage to Exuma
as part the Today Show’s
“Discover Your Roots” series.

Bahamian historians told’

the famous weatherman that it
is most probable that his
ancestors adopted the name
Roker from Exuma landown-
er Thomas Roker — a slave
owner for whom Roker’s
Point, Exuma, is named.

Records of St Andrew’s
Anglican Church in George
Town gave him specifics on
his lineage.

St Andrew’s records led Mr
Roker to information about
his great-great-grandfather

‘ Robert Roker and his great-

grandfather David Roker.

looking: through official parish
records.

“And then Remelda, that’s

my grandmother. Albert and

Remelda got married and
then had my dad. It’s amaz-

ing to see it here. It kind of
. gives you a chill,” he said.

Mr Roker spoke with many
Bahamian sources to complete
his report. ..

Among others, he inter-

viewed Director of Archives
Dr Gail Saunders.and Exuma °

businessman Kermit Rolle.
As part of the Today Show’s
“Discover Your Roots” series,
Mr Roker also travelled to
Liverpool, United Kingdom,
to research his family history.
The Today Show segment
included significant excerpts

‘of video from his 1999 trip to

Exuma for his “Travels with



Al Roker”, which was origi-

‘nally broadcast on the Food

Network.

. The television segment
aired August 29, the day of
the 45th anniversary of Martin
Luther King Jr’s famous “I
Have a Dream” speech and
the day that Barack Obama
accepted a nomination that
made him the United States’
first major party African
American nominee for presi-
dent.

Mr Roker was able to use
interviews and historical doc-
uments to learn the origin of
his name.

An estimated 5.6 million
viewers saw the segment. If
the segment, which lasted
more than 10 minutes, had
been purchased as an adver-

the Bahamas $256,000, adver-

American personnel to fly to States.

THE United States Embassy
on yesterday officially autho-
rised all non- emergency Amer-
ican citizen personnel:and all

. family members to depart their
"posts.

The Embassy made this deci-
sion due to the possibility of
adverse weather conditions as
a result of Tropical Depression
Gustav,.and Tropical Storms
Hanna, Ike, and Josephine..

“Under authorised departure,
non-emergency ‘personnel and
family members are permitted
to leave their post of assignment
to return temporarily to the
United States.

“The decision to depart is
their choice, they cannot be
compelled to leave,” the US
Embassy said yesterday ina
statement.

The US Embassy said it took
this precautionary step in order
to protect the welfare of Amer-
ican citizens and to lessen the
potential demand placed on dis-
aster relief resources in the
Bahamas.

“All non US passport hold-
ers wishing to depart the
Bahamas are required to have a
valid US visa.

“Bahamian nationals are
allowed to travel to the US
without a visa only if prior to

- or at boarding'a flight destined

to the US they are cleared by a
Customs Border Protection offi-
cer,” the Embassy said.

“If and when CBP pre-clear-
ance operations in Nassau and
Freeport close, Bahamian
nationals applying for entry
upon arrival into the United
States will be required to have a
valid Bahamian Passport and
US Visa. US visa waivers may
be considered on a case by
basis.

“These individuals will be
subject to paying the visa waiv-
et fee of $545.

“All non-US travelers will
still be subject to inspection and
final entry approval by CBP.”

Florida settles with
supplier in fake
grouper probe

@ TAMPA, Fla..

GROUPER lovers can edt
assured they’re getting the gen- :
uine article at Tampa Bay-area :
restaurants after the Florida :
attorney general's office ;
announced a_ settlement
Wednesday with a national food :

distributor that had been selling :
substitute kinds of fish, accord- :

ing to Associated Press.

Sysco Food Services-West }
Coast Florida, Inc., is alleged to :
have supplied less expensive fish :
to restaurants who advertised it :
as grouper on their menus. An :
investigation into more than 20 }
Tampa Bay restaurants found }
Sysco had supplied a substitute :

fish for 14.

Under the terms of the settle-
ment, Sysco must refrain from :
’ marketing a fish as grouper}
unless it takes steps to deter- :

mine it is in fact genuine.

The company must also:
donate $100,000 worth of food :
items to local soup kitchens and : ©
charities, and pay the state’s :
investigative fees of costs of:

$200,000.

“Grouper is an important part }
of Florida’s market and every-:
one gains from ensuring that our
restaurants are serving the real ;
Attorney General Bill :
McCollum said in. a news:

thing,”

release.

The attorney general office’s :
probe began in 2006. Investiga- :
tors collected -fish from more :
than 20 restaurants and sent the :
specimens to.a St. Augustine lab ;

for DNA testing.

The results confirmed what :-

were serving other fish as:
grouper, such as Emperor, Hake :

and Green Weakfish.

- Sandi Copes, press secretary :
for the attorney general’s office, :
said that in signing an assurance :
of voluntary compliance, a com- :
pany does not admit to any:
-wrongdoing but agrees to modi- :

fy practices.

mine, Sysco would fest the fish:
and if it couldn’t determine the :
it assumed it was:
grouper and sold it as such,” she :

‘Storm flooding fears fo
- Queens Cove residents

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

FREEPORT - Queens
Cove residents fear that the
movement of Tropical

- Storm Hanna to the east of

Grand Bahama could cause
severe flooding in that resi-
dential subdivision on the
island’s north shore.
Queens Cove, which is
surrounded by water and
man-made canals, has
always been prone to flood-
ing during hurricanes.
Resident Clarence. Bellot
believes the area could
experience flooding if Han-
na remains east of the

island.

Path

He said the storm’s fore-
casted path is very similar
to Hurricane Floyd — a cate-
gory four storm - which
caused flooding in Queens
Cove several years ago.

“We in Queens Cove
don’t want it go east, we
hope it goes west. If it goes
west we should be okay;” he
said.

Mr Bellot said Queen
Cove residents have already
started preparing for the
storm’s arrival.

“People here are running

around battening up (their

homes). There. is a concern \

for flooding whenever a hur-
ricane.is travelling this way.
“Right now, the storm has

been unpredictable for the
past three days and it is
seems to be moving east
which is not good for us

because anything east of

Grand Bahama is going to

flood the north shore,” he
. said.

Mr Bellot said if the storm
continues on its path east of
Grand Bahama like Floyd
did, it is going to send strong
winds from the north north-

.east which. will push the
water level up in Hawksbill
Creek and cause flooding 3 in
Queens Cove.

Wind
He explained that if the
tide is low when the storm
passes, flooding will be

unlikely, “but if we get wind
and an in-coming tide at the

same time we will have a

problem.”

Mr Bellot has ridden out
several storms at his home,
which was under four to five
feet of water during Hurri-
cane Frances.

He said he has cleared
away debris from his prop-

erty and has ensured that his .

vehicle and’ boat are in good
working condition in case he
has to leave.

“Right now, it looks like I
am going to stay, but I have
created a five-point plan,
and right now I am at stage
two — cleaning up things

from the yard and getting

things up as high as I can off
the ground,”

Mr Bellot said he is keep- |

ing a close eye on the storm.

British tour operator

— stops Bahamas s

THE country’s tourism
industry received another
blow yesterday, as a popular
British tour operator discon-
tinued its service to the
Bahamas.

The popular travel site. First
Choice has pulled its Bahamas
programme due to a lack of
demand.

The summer-only pro-
gramme, which used fort-

nightly flights departing from _

New & Pre- Owned
- Vehicles






















Manchester in the United.
Kingdom, will cease at the end
of the summer season in Octo-
ber, the British web site Trav-
el Weekly reported yesterday.

A spokesperson for First
Choice told the travel site that
“as is usual business practice
for any tour operator, First
Choice continually evaluates
the performance of its desti-
nations, ensuring that it under-
stands where it is | performing '
well.

“Unfortunately, a lack of

demand for Bahamas holidays

has greatly detrcasar the prof-
itability of this destination.”
_ In the past, First Choice
offered Bahamas holidays
from $1,471.

The operator | offered stays
at five New Providence and
Paradise Island properties,
including the Atlantis Resort,
the Sandals Royal Bahamian
Hotel, the Paradise Island

Island.
‘First Choice will continue
to. run programmes in seven



ervice

/

; other Caribbean destinations .

including Jamaica, Barbados,
the Dominican Republic, Aru-
ba and Cuba.

The decision by the British
operator to discontinue its ser-

-vice.to the Bahamas is anoth-

er setback. for the country’s
tourism industry, which hopes
to attract more European

. travellers in future.
As the United States:econ-: ‘’’



and American travellers have
less disposable income to:
spend on vacations to the des-
tinations such as the Bahamas,

local tourism officials are hop-
ing to capture the strong
Canadian and European mar-
kets.

_ The Ministry of Tourism
has already allocated signifi-
cantly more money of its $86
million budget to promoting

the Bahamas in Canada and

Europe.

The northeast

for tropical storm

FROM page one

and was about 670 miles east-

northeast of the Leeward -

Islands up to press time last
night. Ike is expected to batter
the Bahamas as early as Sun-
day morning.

At 5 pm yesterday, the cen-

tre of tropical storm Hanna
was about 100 miles northeast
of Great Inagua and 60 miles
west-northwest of Grand Turk
. Up to. press time last night,
Hanna's tropical force winds
extended outward up to 290
miles mainly to the north of

the centre.

Last night the Department
of Meteorology issued a hur-
ricane warning for the north-
west Bahamas —New Provi-
dence, Grand Bahama,
Eleuthera, Abaco, Andros,
Bimini and the Berry
Islands— anda hurricane
warning for the central
Bahamas — Long Island, Cat
Island, San Salvador,
Eleuthera and:Exuma —
remained in place. The tropi-
cal storm warning for the
southeast Bahamas and Turks
and Caicos-Islands was down-

graded to a tropical storm

watch for those islands. _

Because Hanna is speeding
up, forecasters said they do
not expect heavy flooding in
the warning areas.

"Heavy flooding is always
a concern. because 80 per cent
of the Bahamas is 10 feet or
less above main sea-level. But
with the convection, with all
the rain and thunderstorms,
in more towards the north and
east of the system and also the

think so. When (Hanna)
moved past Mayaguana and

directly hit Inagua they had>

no flooding because the
weather was more towards the
east and southeast, so we are
always cautious and, yes, there
is the likelihood (of flooding),
but if the system remains as
is but not a great possibility,"
Senior Deputy Director of the
Department of Meteorology
said after a NEMA press con-
ference yesterday.

National Security Ministar
Tommy Turnquest, represen-
tatives from NEMA, the Roy-
al Bahamas Police Force, the
Department of Meteorology
and others were also at the
press conference.

Hanna was projected to.

move directly over the rain-
battered Turks and Caicos at
10:.pm last night, and turn
towards the eastern tip of
Mayaguana at 1 am today and
move very near to San Sal-
vador around 1 pm today,
Senior Deputy Director at the
Department of Meteorology
Trevor Basden said at a

NEMA press conference yes- °

terday.

Although New Providence
is expected to miss the brunt
of the storm, residents in the

‘capital should experience hur-

ricane conditions by 7 o’clock
tonight. Shelters throughout
the country will open at 12
noon today to accommodate
residents who feel their homes
are not secure. Persons with

pets or special needs should.

play close attention to news
broadcasts for specific infor-
mation.

Mr Basden said the increase

dented.

"During the (wrath) Hurri-
cane Frances, (Hurricane)
Ivan was also on the way and
also (Hurricane) Jean. (The
cause of all these storms) is
really up to debate but I think
that the sophistication of our
meteorological instruments
and our denser network of
satellite systems have allowed

the hurricane centre to be’

able to identify all of these
systems. In years gone past,
the dense network was not
there and I suspect that most
of these systems that are now

. being named would have gone ©

unnamed."
Tropical Storm Hanna
moved over the western tip of

‘Mayaguana and directly over

Inagua on Tuesday, however,
very minimal damage was
reported on these islands,
according to the Department
of Meteorology.

Forecasters are not resting,
however, as their eyes are
already fixed on the strength-
ening Ike, which could reach
category four strength.

"Ike is expected to move
between the central and the

southeast Bahamas between
early Monday morning, but’
- it's still a bit too early to tell.

But the cone of the storm
takes us all the way to the
northern Bahamas and the
southern Bahamas so anyone
of those islands can be affect-
ed by Ike and we do antici-
pate it to be a category one
or category two hurricane,"

meteorologist Wayne Neely |

said.

He said the island can
expect to experience-some
storm conditions by late
Thursday and Friday.

Mr Russell and officials
of the GBDCC held a press

conference at the Adminis-
trator Office in Freeport to
discuss plans that are being
implemented by the com-
mittee.

He said residents should

and purchasing hurricane

capabilities with the assistance of the Bahamian people. It has -

been said before, the police are the public and the public is the
police.

“In addition to these short-term initiatives, the force will
reactivate a committee to look at a five to 10-year strategic
development plan that will serve as the blueprint to chart the
way forward,” he said.

In 1999, the government commissioned CDR International to
undertake a strategic review of the Royal Bahamas Police
Force’and a re-engineering review of the Criminal Investigation
Department. Upon completion, the report made 140 recom-
mendations. A number of these recommendations have been
fully implemented, while some are at various stages of imple-
mentation, and others have yet to be considered.

Of some of the major implementations, Commissioner Fer-
guson said, are the Commissioner’s Annual Report, ‘the estab-
lishment of the Complaints Branch, investigation of incidents of
use of nolice firearms, tape recording of interviews, the estab-
lishment of a public relations officer, the Internal Security Divi-
sion, and the regular evaluation of crime figures and clear up
rates.

These examples are but a few in list of many, however some

recommendations, such as the removal of the police band and
the fire services from the establishment were not accepted, as it
was thought that these-persons are in fact police officers in the

’ first instance, and specialists otherwise.

“Where these recommendations have been implemented for
the first part they have produced the desired results. A case in
point is the creation of divisional detective units. These have put
police resources where the citizens are,’ ” Commissioner Fergu-

= gon said. ~

-“Sunilarly, | commanders‘now have direct responsibility for the
management: of crimes in their areas,” hé'said.

While this is all noted, the commissioner said that there are
two items that the force would most pressingly like to see;
mainly the implementation of closed circuit television, and the

_ construction of'a state of the art forensic science facility to

includea DNA lab.
“Studies have demonstrated that the use of CCl V has played

an important role in reducing crime and the fear of crime. I am.
- confident that with the proper regulatory controls and the

upkeep of the system, many offenders will be brought to justice
while potential offenders will be prevented from committing
crime.

“While the RBPF is the premier law enforcement agency in
the Bahamas, its work remains incomplete without the assistance
of the public. In this vein, the call goes out to all people of
goodwill to step up to the plate and be counted in the quest to

save our fair land, After all, the buck stops with us all,” Com-

missioner Ferguson said.

dence later this evening.
Due to the approach of
tropical storm Hanna on
the northeastern Bahamas,
including New Providence,



there are a number of busi-
ness and agencies that have
confirmed that employees

- are exempt from work

today.

General Manager for the
Wyndham Resort Robert
Sands confirms that by 1
pm today, an announce-
ment will be made at the
resort to what actions — in
terms of employees report-
ing for duty — will be made
based on tropical storm
Hanna.

Employees at Wendy’ S
and at SuperValue, are also
exempted from work today.

According to Minister for
National Security Tommy
Turnquest, all government
employees are expected to
show up for work today.

For employees at various
banks throughout Nassau,
up until new times, it was

urged by officials to prop-
erly prepare themselves for
what could be “a’rough
couple of days.”

The unpredictable storm,
which was classified a cate-
gory 1 hurricane on Mon-
day and later downgraded,
is expected today to once

again develop into a cate-.

gory 1 storm according to
meteorologist Mike Stubbs.
And just at the heels of
tropical storm Hanna, is
Hurricane Ike which is set
to follow a similar path as
that of Hanna.
Pre-hurricane prepara-
tions such as stocking up on
canned goods, water, hav-
ing battery operated radios,
and with persons securing
family and property, are
some of the basic things
many people should’ have
done before the storm.

‘Hurricane shelters to

Lillian Quant Forbes,
assistant director of the
Department of Social Ser-

for shelter management,
said persons should only go
to the shelter as a last
resort.

She said the shelter at
Maurice Moore Primary
and the shelter for special

on Wednesday.

“Not everyone has to
come into the shelter if your

home is sturdy. You should

first contact family or
friends who will be willing
to host you in their homes,
but if that is not possible
then we say come to the
shelter,” said Mrs Forbes.
Mrs Forbes said because
the areas of Hunters, Mac
Town.-and Pinder’s Point
are known as flood zones, a
shelter was established at

the St.Georges High School .

for those residents.

She said shelters have
been identified in Eight
Mile Rock for residents in
West Grand Bahama.

Mrs Forbes said persons
staying at shelters should
take their personal supplies
because only a minimal
amount of food will be pro-
vided.

“We understand (eco-
nomic), conditions experi-
enced in Grand Bahama,
but we are advising them to
bring whatever they can to
the shelter, in addition to
medication or important
documents, papers that they
want.to keep safe,” she said.

Administrator Rufus
Johnson said the Emer-
gency Operation Centre in
Eight Mile Rock will open
at 2pm on Thursday, and
the Eight Mile Rock gym-
nasium shelter will open at
5pm.

He added that the Martin

“We are asking citizens
on Grand Bahama to stay

said.

Pakistan says foreign

troops raid village

@ By PAUL ALEXANDER
ISLAMABAD,
Pakistan

Pakistan angrily condemned a
raid on a village that killed at least
15 people Wednesday, claiming
U.S.-led troops flew in from
Afghanistan for the first known
foreign ground assault against a
suspected Taliban haven in this
country’s wild tribal belt, accord-
ing to the Associated Press.

The Foreign Ministry protested
the attack, and an army

spokesman warned that the
apparent escalation from recent
missile strikes on militant targets

along the Afghan border would
further anger Pakistanis and
undercut cooperation in the war
against terrorist groups.

The boldness of the thrust fed
speculation about the intended
target. But it was unclear whether
any extremist leader was killed
or captured in the operation,
which occurred in one of the mil-
itant strongholds dotting a fron-
tier region considered a likely hid-

ing place for Osama bin Laden

and al-Qaida’s No. 2 leader,
Ayman al-Zawahri.

U.S. military and civilian offi-
cials declined to respond to Pak-
istan’s complaints or discuss the

ington said any decision to launch
a mission sure to anger Pakistan
would require, a very important
target.

Suspected U. S. missile attacks
killed at least two al-Qaida com-
manders this year in the same
region, drawing protests from

.Pakistan’s government that its

sovereignty was under attack.
U.S. officials did not acknowl-
edge any involvement in those
attacks.

But American commanders
have been complaining publicly
that Pakistan puts too little pres-
sure on militant groups. that are
blamed for mounting violence in
Afghanistan, stirring speculation
that U.S. forces might lash out
across the frontier.

In other signs of Pakistan’s pre-
carious stability three days before
legislators elect a successor to
Pervez Musharraf as president,
snipers shot at the prime minis-
ter’s limousine near Islamabad
and government troops killed two
dozen militants in another area
of the restive northwest.

Pakistani officials said they
were lodging'strong protests with
the U.S. government and its mil-
itary representative in Islamabad
about Wednesday’s raid in the
South Waziristan area, a,notori-
ous hot bed of militant activity.

. The Foreign ‘Ministry called the
strike “a gross violation of Pak-
istan’s territory,” saying it could
“undermine the very basis of

~ cooperation and may fuel the fire

of hatred and violence that we
are trying to extinguish.”

Government and military offi-
cials insisted that either the
NATO force or the U.S.-led
coalition in Afghanistan — both
commanded by American gener-
als — were responsible.

The army’s spokesman, Maj.
Gen. Athar Abbas, said the
attack was the first incursion onto
Pakistani soil by troops from the
foreign forces that ousted
Afghanistan’s hard-line Taliban
regime after the Sept. 11 attack
on the U.S.

He said the attack would
undermine Pakistan’s efforts to

isolate Islamié eXtrémists and

could threaten NATO’s major





THE TRIBUNE

AP Photo/Press Information Department/HO

IN THIS PICTURE released by the Press Information Department, bullet marks are seen in a window of the car:
of Pakistan Prime Minister Yousuf Raza Gilani which was attacked in Islamabad, Pakistan, Wednesday, Sept 3,
2008. Pakistan's prime minister survived an apparent assassination attempt Wednesday when at least two shots,
hit his limousine as he drove toward the capital.

Pakistan’s Indian Ocean port of

Karachi through the tribal Tegion

into Afghanistan.

“We cannot afford a huge
uprising at the level of tribe,”
Abbas said. “That would be com-
pletely counterproductive and
doesn’t help the cause of fighting
terrorism in the area.”

A spokesman for the U.S.-led

coalition in Afghanistan, 1st Lt.
Nathan Perry, said he had “no
information to give”
Wednesday’s incident. A
spokesman for NATO troops in
Afghanistan denied any involve-
ment. The Bush administration
allowed the complaint by Pak-
istan’s Foreign Ministry to stand
without a public response, an
indication of the political sensi-
tivities involved.
Officials at the Pentagon,
White House and State Depart-
ment wouldn’t even confirm the
raid occurred. Defense Depart-
ment spokesman Bryan Whitman
said: “I have nothing for you.”
But-one official, a South Asia
expert who agreed to discuss the
situation only if not quoted by
name, suggested the target.of any

' raid like that reported Wednes-

day would have to be extremely
important to risk an almost
assured “big backlash” from Pak-
istan.

“You have to consider that
something like this will be a
more-or-less once-off opportuni-
ty for which we will have to’pay a
price in terms Of Pakistani coop-
eration,” the official said.

The Pakistani anger threatens
to upset efforts by American
commanders to draw Pakistan’s
military into the U.S. strategy of

‘dealing harshly with the militants.

Adm. ‘Mike Mullen, chairman
of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, met
last week with Gen. Ashfaq
Kayani, the Pakistani army chief.

“Mullen said he came away

encouraged that Pakistanis were
becoming more focused on the
problem of militants using the
country-as a safe haven.

_ However, Abbas, the army
spokesman, said Wednesday that
cross-border commando opera-
tions were not discussed and he
reiterated Pakistan’s position that

its forces should be exclusively

responsible for operations on its
territory. Pakistani officials say
the U.S. and NATO should share
intelligence and allow Pakistani
troops to execute any raids need-
ed inside Pakistan. However,

‘Washington has accused rogue

elements in Pakistan’s main intel-
ligence service of leaking sensi-
tive information to militants. .

American officials say destroy-
ing militant sanctuaries in Pak-
istani tribal regions is key to
defeating Taliban-led militants in
Afghanistan whose insurgency
has strengthened every. year since
the fundamentalist militia was
ousted for harboring bin Laden.

But there has been debate in
Washington over how far the U.S.
can go on its own..

The Associated: Press report-‘:..

ed last year that U.S: rules of

engagement allow ground troops.
to go a little over six miles into;
Pakistan when in hot pursuit o
insurgents and when forces are*
targeted or come under fire. U.S
rules allow aircraft £0 go 10 miles 3
into Pakistan air space.

Abbas said Wednesday’s attack ™
occurred in a village a little over a .
mile inside Pakistan.

Citing witness. and uiteltigénce :
reports, he said troops flew in on
at least one big CH-47 Chinook
transport helicopter, blasted their
way into several houses.and °
gunned down men they found »





there. He said there was no evi- 3:

dence that any of those killed
were insurgents or that the raiders 5;

abducted any militant leader, but {) °

he acknowledged Pakistan’s mil- ;-
itary had no firsthand account.
There were differing reports
on how many people were killed.
The provincial governor claimed
20 civilians, including women and
children, died. Army.and intelli-

gence officials, as.well.as resi-

dents, said 15 people were killed.
Habib Khan Wazir, an area

‘resident, said he heard heli-

copters, then an exchange of gun-
fire. “Later, [saw 15 bodies inside
and outside two homes. They had
been shot in the head,” Wazir
said by phone. He claimed all the
dead were civilians.

ter, hitting the window of his car

_A-chunk of ice shelf nearly:

the size of Manhattan has bro-
ken away from Ellesmere Island
in Canada’s northern Arctic,
another dramatic indication, of
how warmer temperatures are
changing the polar frontier, sci-
entists said Wednesday, accord-

ing to the Associated Press.

- Derek Mueller, an Arctic ice
shelf specialist at Trent Univer-
sity in Ontario, told The Asso-
ciated Press that the 4,500-year-
old Markham Ice Shelf sepa-

‘rated in early August and the

19-square-mile shelf is now
adrift in the Arctic Ocean.

_ “The Markham Ice Shelf was
a big surprise because it sud-

denly disappeared. We went

under cloud for a bit during our
research and when the weather
cleared up, all of a sudden there
was no more ice shelf. It was a

‘shocking event that underscores |

the rapidity of changes taking

place in the Arctic,” said.

Muller.

‘Muller also said that two
large s sections of ice detached
from the-Serson Ice Shelf,
shrinking that ice feature by 47
square miles — or 60 percent
— and that the Ward Hunt Ice

Shelf has also continued ‘to -

break up, losing an additional
eight square miles.

Muller reported last month
that seven square miles of the
170-square-mile and 130-feet-

thick Ward Hunt shelf had bro-

ken off. This comes on the heels

of unusual cracks in a northern:

Greenland glacier, rapid melt-

ing of a southern Greenland |
glacier, and a near record: loss.

And earlicr this year a 160-
square mile chunk of an Antarc-

’ “Reduced sea ice conditions
and unusually high air temper-

shelf losses this summer,’

Laboratory for Cryospheric .

Research at the University of
Ottawa. “And extensive new

After Gustav doesn’t deliver, will people

m@ NEW ORLEANS

MILLIONS fled the Gulf Coast in
fear of Hurricane Gustav, billed as the

apocalyptic “mother of all-storms.” It.

didn’t deliver. Now, with three other
storms lining up in the Atlantic, some
fear people might not listen next time,
according to the Associated Press.

As the first of the 2 million people
who fled Gustav began to trickle home
Tuesday from shelters, many grumbled
about the food, the heat, the over-
crowding, the uncertainty and the frus-
trating wait for the all-clear. Some evac-
uees, particularly in Texas, on the far
fringes of the storm’s path, suggested
authorities overreacted in demanding
they leave their homes.

“Next time, it’s going to be bad
because people who evacuated like us
aren’t going to evacuate,” Catherine
Jones, 53, of Silsbee, Texas, who spent
three days on a cot at a church shelter
with her disabled son. “They jumped
the gun.”

Emergency officials strongly defend-
ed the decision to evacuate coastal
areas, saying that with something as
unpredictatle as a hurricane, it is better
to be safe than sorry — a lesson driven
home by Katrina, which killed 1,600
people in the U.S. in 2005, compared
with nine deaths attributed to Gustav.

Officials noted’ that, yes, New
Orleans’ levees held, and Gustav struck
only a glancing blow. But when trees
fell on homes, power lines went down
and roads were washed out, there was

no one around to get hurt. And there

was significant damage: Early insur-
ance industry estimates put the expect-
ed damage to covered properties at

if



anywhere from $2 billion to $10 bil-
lion. That’s high, but well short of Katri-
na’s $41 billion.

“The reasons you’re not seeing dra-
matic stories of rescue is because we
had a successful evacuation,” said

Homeland Security Secretary Michael.

Chertoff. “The only reason we don’t
have more tales of people in grave dan-
ger is because everyone heeded the
instructions.to get out of town.”.

At the same time, a top emergency
planner in Louisiana acknowledged
that authorities run of the risk of being
accused of crying wolf.

“At all levels, that is a tremendous
concern,” said Col. Pat Griffin, head

of logistics for the state. “After one or '

two or three of these, I think the lead-
ership on the local and state level are
going to have to push even harley to
convince the people.”

With three months left in the Atlantic
hurricane season, the question of
whether residents will heed an evacua-

to New Orleans,La., in Slidell, La., Tuesday,
Sept. 2, 2008. Peterson and her grandchil-
dren evacuated New Orleans to escape
Hurricane Gustav:



tion order is a serious matter. Three
storms are lining up in the Atlantic,
with Tropical Storm Hanna leading the
way. Hanna could strengthen into a
hurricane and hit Florida and Georgia
later in the week.

New Orleans Mayor Ray Nagin, who
ordered the city evacuated and warned
that the “mother of all storms” was
approaching, strongly stood by his deci-
sion, and: said’he would make do the
same thing all over again.

“We were faced with a Category 5
potential, a huge storm; which would

have been really bad news for our citi-

zens,” Nagin said. “And there was a
complacency.”

Similarly, some evacuees said author-
ities made the right call.

James Katicich, a 49-year-old |

BRIE said his stay at a shelter in
Birmingham, Ala., was rough —

Tationed portions of food and sleéping .

just inches away from strangers.
“But it’s better to be safe than sorry,”

he said. “We needed to evacuate
because no one really knows how bad
the hurricane can be until it hits.”
The damage assessments coming in
Tuesday from the coast provided fur-
ther evidence Gustav was no Katrina.
Initial inspections showed little dam-
age to the Gulf Coast’s extensive oil
and gas installations, though resump-

-tion of production and refining could

still take a few days. Reflecting confi-
dence that the industry suffered little
damage, oil prices fell $5.75 a barrel.

In some places, such as Texas, Gus-
tav barely brought a sprinkle, leading to
frustration among those who had to
spend days on a cot. The Beaumont
Enterprise went as far as to taunt “Gus-
tav Who?” on the front page the day
after the storm.

“My brother went to ‘Atlanta. He
can’t get back. He’s not happy,” said
Rod Ferrand, who lives in the New

_Orleans suburb. of Harahan, as he cut

up a stately live oak split by the storm.
‘And there’s not a branch on his lawn.
Now no one can come back in. The
next big storm that comes in, nobody’s
going to want to leave.”

Many evacuees grew frustrated Tues-

‘day as the waited for word on whether

they could return to their homes. New
Orleans officials said it would be at
least Thursday before people would be
allowed back, because the city lacked
many vital services.
Across the state, more than 1 mil-

- lion: people were without electricity,
,and cellular and Internet service was

spotty. Gas stations were unable to
pump. fuel because of the power out-
ages. The threat of severe weather had
yet to fully pass, too. _

Cambridge University
wants to he on TV soaps

LONDON ;

BRITAIN’S soap operas
offer a steady diet of sex, scan-
dal —.and if Cambridge Uni-
versity has its way, scholarship,
according to the Associated
Press.

Trying to. shed its elitist
image, Cambridge has
approached the producers of
Britain’s three leading TV soaps
about including it in their story
lines.

Spokesman Greg Hayman
said the idea was part of a bid to
correct the perception that Cam-
bridge was “not for young peo-
ple from ordinary backgrounds.”

“We're very keen to attract
the brightest and best students
regardless of their background,”
Hayman said Tuesday. “One of
the better ways of communicat-
ing directly with potential stu-
dents is to talk to them through
the soaps and other programs
they watch.”

Like almost all British univer-
sities, Cambridge and its rival
Oxford are government-funded,
and. under pressure to become
more inclusive. The government
wants half of all young people
to attend college by 2010, which
means universities need to target
all economic backgrounds.

What better way than through
the travails of characters on
“RastEnders,” “Coronation
Street” and “Emmerdale” — set
respectively, in a gritty London
neighborhood, a:scruffy Man-
chester district and a farming vil-
lage.

In some ways Oxford and
Cambridge — elegant, affluent
universities known collectively

as “Oxbridge” — resemble U.S. ©

Ivy League schools, which have
long tried to attract minority and
less well-off students through

scholarships and outreach pro-.

grams. Several elite U.S, col-
leges, including Harvard and
Yale, have set family income
thresholds below which students
pay no tuition — $45,000 at Yale

and $60,000 at Hatvard for stu-

dents entering this fall.,

“Yale is eager to have as much
diversity as possible, and that
includes socio-economic diver-
sity,”

said spokeswoman Gila »

Reinstein. More than 40 percent
of Yale’s students now get finan-
cial aid and the number is steadi-
ly rising — evidence of more stu-
dents from less well-off back-
grounds. ,

But Harvard and Yale don’t
occupy quite the same central
social perch as Oxbridge, whose
graduates account for 78 percent
of Britain’s High Court judges,
42 percent of its top politicians
and 56 percent of its senior jour-
nalists, according to education
charity the Sutton Trust.

And while 90 percent of
British students attend state
high schools, Oxford anda

Cambridge draw only about -

half their student body from
there.

Many in Britain’s poorer
neighborhoods still view attend-
ing Oxford or Cambridge as an
impossible dream.

“The money definitely puts
me off,” said Matt Ryan, a t6-
year-old who attends a state
high school in Hampshire in

southern England and hopes to â„¢

study engineering at Cam-
bridge. “I think a lot of people
are put off because Oxford and
Cambridge are the best of the
best. But if any old person could
get in, there’d be no point.” ~

The elitist image is. unfair,
according to university officials.

University administrators
point out that Oxford and Cam-
bridge are not more expensive
than less-esteemed. universities,
because tuition fees are capped
by law at about $5,350 per year.
Ethnic minority students are not
underrepresented — they make
up 16 percent ‘of the student
body at Cambridge, and 13 per-
cent at Oxford, a slightly larger
proportion than i in society asa
whole.

“There’s a perception gap

between reality and how we’ve ~

been perceived previously and
that takes time to:change,” Hay:
man said:

The stone buildings and ele-
gant spires of Oxbridge have
provided the backdrop for
many films and TV shows, from
historical drama “Chariots of

9

Fire,” set in Cambridge, to

Oxford- based detective series

“Inspector ’N Morse.”

m BAGHDAD



SALAM DAWOOD sat in his car stuck in traf-
fic. A mother and her two sons shuffled among the
vehicles, begging for money when a roadside bomb
exploded, according to the Associated Press.

The toll was low by Baghdad standards: Dawood
and another man were dead. The mother, her sons
and five others were wounded, according to police
and hospital officials.

But Tuesday’s blast — a bomb hidden under a
pedestrian bridge — represents the lingering perils
in a city slowly emerging from years of almost
unchecked violence.

Small scale bombings and shootings persist in the
capital — each a reminder that the war is not over
and that Baghdad remains a place where no trip is
routine and residents are still guided by precau-
tions.

Most won’t drive at night. Many try to avoid
heavily clogged streets, remembering that suicide
bombers and other attackers intent on killing large
numbers of civilians favor traffic j Jars or congested
areas.

Baghdad is the key to stability in Iraq as the cen-
ter of government and as a potential symbol of rec-
onciliation among rival groups. This flagship role,
however, also makes it coveted ground for militias

_ and insurgents fighting efforts to fully restore

order.

The U.S. military warns consistently that the
security gains, though dramatic, are not irreversible
and that the relative calm is fragile.

Dawood was two miles from his office in central
Baghdad’s Khilani Square where he worked as a
civil engineer when the bomb exploded. It was
stashed near a police post, although it was unclear
whether that was the target.

The blast killed him and Hameed Miziel, a 37-

_ year-old laborer, according to officials who spoke

on condition of anonymity because they were not
allowed to talk to-the media.

Moments before the blast, mechanic Qassim
Mohammed jumped out of a minibus, deciding to
walk the rest of the way to his shop despite the
punishing Baghdad sun. None of those who stayed
in the bus was hurt.

“I saw the fire of the eenineon and two women
fell on the street. Then, I found myself at the hospi-
tal with wounds to my right shoulder and leg and ~

- shrapnel wounds on my face,” he said later at a
-nearby hospital. The mother, who gave her name

only as “Umm Mohammed” or “mother of
Mohammed,” said she chose to beg in that area —
a busy intersection lined with car and generator
repair shops — because she thought it was safe.

“T used to beg in different areas, but recently I
came to this intersection because I thought it was
safe there. Thank God, my injury and my sons’
were not serious,” the 36-year-old widow said from
the hospital where she was treated for a leg wound.

In Baghdad, however, safe is a relative term.

USS. and Iraqi officials do not routinely release
figures on the number of bombs that explode each

‘month in Baghdad, citing security.

According to Iraqi police, however, at least five
small bombs explode on average each month in the
area where the bombing occurred Tuesday: near

- the intersection on the eastern side of the Tigris
River. Less than two weeks ago, a pair of bombs

exploded:almost simultaneously near the intetgec-
tion, killing three civilians.

Smoking found to be

riskier to women’s"
hearts than men’s

Hi MUNICH, German ;



WOMEN typically get heart
disease much later than men, but
not if they smoke, researchers
said Tuesday, according to the
Associated Press.

In fact, women who smoke
have heart attacks nearly 14
years earlier than women who

_ don’t smoke, Norwegian doctors

reported in a study presented to
the European Society of Cardi-
ology. For men, the gap is not
so dramatic; male smokers have
heart attacks about six years ear-
lier than men who don’t smoke.

“This is not a minor differ- -

ence,” said Dr. Silvia Priori, a
cardiologist at the Scientific Insti-
tute in Pavia, Italy. “Women
need to realize they are losing
much more than men when they
smoke,” she said. Priori was not
connected to the research.

Dr. Morten Grundtvig and
colleagues from the Innlandet
Hospital Trust in Lillehammer,
Norway, based their study on
data from 1,784 patients admit-
ted for a first heart attack at a

hospital in Lillehammer.: ©“

Their study found that the
men on average had their first
heart attack at age 72 if they did-
n’t smoke, and at 64 if they did.

Women in the study had their
first heart attack at age 81 if they
didn’t smoke, and at age 66 if
they did.

After adjusting for other heart
risk factors like blood pressure,

- cholesterol and diabetes,

reseatchers found that the dif-
ference for women was about 14
years and for men, about six
years.

Previous studies looking at a
possible gender difference have
been inconclusive.

Doctors have long suspected

‘that female hormones protect

women against heart disease. :
Estrogen is thought to raise the ::
levels of good cholesterol as well :
as enabling blood vessel walls :
to relax more easily, thus low- :
ering the chances of a blockage. :

Grundtvig said that smoking :
might make women go through :
menopause earlier, leaving them :
less protected against a heart :
attack. With rising rates of

Nancy Pelosi visits
Hiroshima atomic
bomb memorial

BB HIROSHIMA, Japan



U.S. House Speaker Nan-
cy Pelosi on Tuesday
became the highest-ranking
sitting American official to
visit ground zero of the
world’s first atomic bomb-
ing.

The Democrat, who came
to this western port city for a
two-day annual gathering of
Group of Eight legislative .
heads, joined other speak-
‘ers in paying their respects
at a memorial to the
Hiroshima bombing. One by
one, each bowed, then laid
flowers at a white, arch-
shaped monument contain-
ing the names of more than
200,000 victims of the
nuclear blast.

No serving U.S. president
or vice president has ever
visited Hiroshima. As speak-
er of the House of Repre-
sentatives, Pelosi is second .
in line to the presidency

' after U.S. Vice President

Dick Cheney.

Former U.S. President
Jimmy Carter stopped by
the memorial in 1984, after
his term, asa private citizen.

Yohei Kono, leader of
Japan’s House of Represen-
tatives, said no decisions
were made during the meet-
ing on peace and disarma-
ment, but he emphasized the
symbolic importance of dis-
cussing the future of nuclear
weapons in the city.

“The fact that they all
came to Hiroshima has sig-
nificant meaning,” said
Kono after the group’s day-
long meeting Tuesday.
~“T hope that even more
international political lead-
ers come to: Hiroshima and
Nagasaki and see with their
own eyes, so that they will
be able to strengthen their
resolve for disarmament and
nuclear disarmament going

Pelosi said nothing to
reporters after the ceremo-
ny, a possible reflection of
the lingering sensitivity that
surrounds the history of
Hiroshima.

Americans and others
continue to debate whether
the decision to use the
nuclear bomb was a prag-
matic one that hastened the
war’s end or a brutal, unnec-
essary crime against human-
ity. ;

An estimated 140,000 peo-
ple were killed instantly or
died within a few months
after an American B-29
bomber dropped its lethal
payload on Aug. 6, 1945.
Tens of thousands more died
from radiation poisoning in
the years following.

Three days later on Aug.
9, 1945, the U.S. dropped a
second nuclear bomb on the
city of Nagasaki, killing
some 80,000 people. Japan
surrendered'on Aug. 15,

- ending World War II.

Japan adopted a pacifist

constitution after the war
and has since become one of
the world’s staunchest cru-
saders against nuclear pro-
liferation.
_ For any government offi-
cial visiting Hiroshima, a
statement expressing sym-
pathy could “get taken with-
in the American political
context as some sort of crit-
icism of the decision itself
and thereby extension fight-
ing a good war, a just.war,”
said James J. Orr, chair of
the East Asian Studies
Department at Bucknell
University.

The Tribune wants to hear
from people who are
making news in their
neighbourhoods. Perhaps
you are raising funds for a
good cause, campaigning
for improvements in the
area or have won an

A DIRECTOR is a person
appointed by the shareholders
to manage a company.

Two general types
of Directors:

Executive Director “
A director who works full-
time in.a company and is
' responsible for the daily opera-
tions, strategic planning, man-
agement and business develop-
ment of a company.

Non-Executive Director
_ A director who does not
work full-time in a company but
attends board meetings and
gives advice to the Board of
Directors.

There is no legal distinction
between an executive director
and a non-executive director.
Both executive and non-exec-
utive directors have the same
legal duties, responsibilities and
potential liabilities.

While the Companies Act
1992 and the International Busi-
ness Companies Act 2000 do

_ not specifically define a ‘direc-
_ tor’, only an ‘officer’ of.a com-
pany, both Acts do legislatively

~ reinforce the general fiduciary
duties of a director to manage
the company, act honestly, in
good faith, and in the best inter-
ests of the company, subject toa -
unanimous shareholder agree-
ment and/or the Memorandum :
and Articles of Association of
the company. ;

Directors are also required
to exercise a duty of care, dili- |
gence and skill that a reason-
ably prudent person would

. exercise in such a position,
whether as an executive director
responsible for the daily opera-
tion and management of the
company, Or as a non-executive
director, acting independently
of the actual day-to-day man-
agement of the company.

As fiduciaries, directors have
a legal duty to act in good faith,

Bahamas tourism
dealt further blow

THE Bahamian tourism
industry’s efforts to further pen-
etrate the European market
have suffered a blow on the air-
lift front, after UK-based tour
operator First Choice blamed
falling demand and profits for
ending its Bahamas service.

First Choice operated fort-
nightly flights to the Bahamas
during the summer, departing
from Manchester, but will shut
this service in October:

First Choice told British web
site Travel Weekly that “as is

usual business practice for any
tour operator, First Choice con-
tinually evaluates the perfor-
mance of its destinations, ensur-
ing that it understands where it
is performing well.

“Unfortunately, a lack of
demand for Bahamas holidays
has greatly decreased the prof-
itability of this destination.”

In the past, First Choice
offered Bahamas holidays from
$1,471.

The operator offered stays at

five New Providence and Par-

adise Island properties, includ-
ing Atlantis, Sandals Royal
Bahamian, the Paradise Island
Harbour Resort, SuperClubs
Breezes and the RIU Paradise
Island.

First Choice will continue to
run programmes in seven other
Caribbean destinations includ-
ing Jamaica, Barbados, the
Dominican Republic, Aruba
and Cuba, indicating that the

Bahamas is becoming increas- .

ingly uncompetitive in the
European market.

Government urged to hold-off
on EPA agreement signing

& By CARA BRENNEN-
BETHEL
Business Reporter

THE main Bahamian pres-
sure group opposing the Eco-
nomic Partnership Agreement
(EPA) yesterday said it was
unimpressed by this nation’s
services offer, and urged the
Government to hold-off on
signing the deal with the Euro-
pean Union (EU) to focus on
trade relations with the US.

Bahamians Agitating for a
Referendum on Free Trade
(BARF) will next week join
other EPA opponents in Bar-
bados for a demonstration
against the proposed agreement
between the EU and CARI-
FORUM region.

Paul Moss, a leading BARF
member, told Tribune Business
yesterday that having seen the
recently-released EPA services
offer for the Bahamas, the
organisation was not impressed
and none of its concerns have
been allayed.

“Tam not impressed with the
services offer. It is just that: An
offer to serve. The Bahamas

“We want to remain relevant
in the market today and address
the issues that are out there.
What we are trying to do is
expand the product base to
meet the demands from our
customers and the country at
last.”

That has involved the cre-
ation of two new Family
Guardian subsidiaries, FG
Financial, which will provide
pensions and investments ser-
vices, and FG Capital Markets,
which will deliver brokerage
and corporate advisory services.

In addition, - Family
Guardian’s three investment
fund sub-funds - the FG Finan-
cial Preferred Income Fund, the

He added that BARF had no,

intentions of slowing down its
protest against the EPA.

“Up . and down _ the
Caribbean, organisers are
preparing to demonstrate in
Barbados next week to protest
against governments like the
Bahamas that have demon-
strated their arrogance in this
matter. We, in BARF, will be
there to register our extreme
disapproval of our governmen-
t’s decision to sign this re-
colonising agreement,” Mr
Moss said.

He added that they would
like the Government to recon-
sider the EPA for five basic rea-
sons:

* The fact that the US is the
Bahamas’ most important trad-
ing. partner, and the EU is the
smallest

* The EU is in the process of ©
negotiating with South Ameri-

ca. a

“mixed in” with other securi-

ties.and investments, helping to .

dilute the equities market
downturn, which to date has
wiped at least 12 per cent off
the BISX All-Share Index.

The FG Financial Preferred

_ Income Fund is invested pri-

marily in fixed-income securi-
ties, such as government bonds,
mortgages and certificates of
deposit; the FG Financial

_ Diversified Fund is invested in a

mix of equities and fixed

Financial Growth Fund is 75
per cent weighted towards equi-
ties.

With the latter fund, Ms Her-°

assets would help “offset the

administration

* The need to put in place an
alternative means of raising tax-
es to replace the customs duties
that the Bahamas would lose
by signing the EPA.

Mr Moss said he had always

advocated income tax-as the pri-
mary means of taxation. On the
possibility of adopting a value-
added tax (VAT), Mr Moss said
that form. of taxation was not
sufficient in itself to meet the
country’s needs and would need
to be combined with, another
form of duty.

He added that Prime Minister
Hubert Ingraham had been
deafeningly quiet on the mat-
ter, and said he needed to
make some sort of statement to
the Bahamian people, consid-
ering the significance of the
EPA.

Minister Micklyn Seymour
supported: Mr Moss’s claims,
and called on the Christian
Council to .speak out on the
matter. |: :

He said he wanted the Gov-
ernment to point out any draw-
backs to signing the EPA to
help Bahamians get a clearer

would mean... :

to provide a return”.

“We are gaining customers
daily. We are getting a lot of
interest from the public,” Ms

Hermanns said. “On our pen- |.

sions business, our brokerage
business, we are seeing the
numbers grow.”

Meanwhile, the three: new.

products launched by Family
Guardian in its Home Service
division had been,“very well
received” by the market. These
were a death benefits policy to
cover final funeral expenses; a
family policy, to cover .the

whole family; and an endow- se

ment-type investment policy. ©

“They were launched at the
beginning of July and we are
running the numbers now,” Ms
Hermanns said. “There is‘a
demand for the products that
were launched, and we’re antic-
ipating the growth of the busi-
ness from that angle.”

Ms Hermanns said Family
Guardian’s Exuma branch
office was set to open this
month, and the company was
also looking to expand its gen-
eral insurance agency sub-
sidiary.

THE TRIBUNE



Re CRT ee |
Bahamas-based dealer takes Emerald Bay lead

FROM page 1B

only complete the purchase, but also
complete the full build-out of Emerald
Bay and take the resort property for-
ward. It was then that Mr Weisfisch
stepped up to the plate and took the
lead role.

Minister

Prime Minister Hubert Ingraham is
said not to have been keen on the
Weisfisch proposal, but is thought to
have been encouraged to reconsider it
via an intense lobbying effort mount-
ed by the Israeli trader’s attorneys.

Mr Weisfisch is understood to have
been keen on hotel ownership in the
Bahamas for some time, Tribune Busi-
ness having revealed several years ago
how he was considering a project on

Hotel Corporation-owned land in
Eleuthera with his brother, Amir.

That, though, seemed to stall after _

the two brothers had a bitter falling
out that resulted in numerous legal
battles and complex cross-border liti-
gation in the courts of the Bahamas
and the UK.

Emerald Bay has acted as Exuma’s
main economic engine, attracting
additional foreign direct investment
to the island. It employs almost 500
staff, and features an 18-hole Greg
Norman Golf Course, two restau-
rants, three pools, spa, six meeting
rooms and 450-person capacity ball-
room.

Other investment projects previ-
ously attracted to the Emerald Bay
vicinity include the resort’s Pinnacle
Entertainment-managed $5 million
casino, the $110 million Grand Isle
Villas development, plus the 80/50

fractional ownership component.

A shopping complex has also
opened at Emerald Bay, the anchor
retailer being the Emerald Isle super-
market. The complex also includes
businesses such as Scotiabank and
Mail Boxes Etc.

Deputy

David Johnson, deputy director-_
general in the Ministry of Tourism

with responsibility for planning,

investment and business develop-
ment, warned last year that the Four
Seasons needed to become a sus-
tainable, profitable resort, and the
Bahamas could not afford for it to
fail.

He said then that factors such as
building costs being about 40 per cent
higher per square foot than they are
in Nassau, had retarded Emerald

Bay’s growth and kept it from reach-
ing the development its owners had
previously predicted.

Mr Johnson said of Emerald Bay:

“The property was conceived to be a
mixed-use project, with 185 keys
under the Four Seasons brand. The
vast majority of the property was to
be for mixed-use, condos and hun-
dreds of lots sold for significant fam-
ily homes.
_ “After four years of operation,
they have developed very little of the
sold inventory. There’s been a lot of
trading of the land by the owners,
but the cost of building is prohibi-
tive.

“The buildings costs, the numbers
suggest, are in excess of 40 per cent
higher per square foot to build.”

Costs to construct such properties
in Nassau were $500 per square foot,

while in Exuma the price was $800
per square foot.

Mr Johnson also underlined the
impact the relatively high building
costs on Exuma, compared to Nas-
sau, were having on Emerald Bay’s
margins. He pointed out that con-
crete there cost $200 per yard, where-
as in Nassau it cost $125 per yard.

“The hotel, with a golf course and
spa, as a 185-room resort of Four
Seasons’ calibre, can only be prof-
itable if it has a much larger customer
base outside those rooms,” Mr John-
son said.

Resort

He added that the resort needed to
build out to 700-800 units to get close
to profitability, whereas it was cur-

_ rently closer to 300-400 units.

BEST, from 1B

environmental lobby opposed
to Albany, led by reearth’s Sam
Duncombe.

The report noted, in particu-
lar, that marina and land spill

management protocols in the
EMP were “not as detailed or
comprehensive” as those includ-
ed in spill prevention, control
and countermeasures embod-
ied in US regulations, or up to
what was “generally recognised

_as standard industry practice”.

The report concluded: “While

UNION WHARF

Prime development site located in the heart of Downtown,
Nassau, provides an excellent opportunity for a comméreial,
residential or mixed use development within the proposed re-
urbanization master plan for DowntoWn Nassau and the
Harbourfront. This parcel is located in the. Living Waterfront
District which will consist mainly of residential developments
_with supporting retail, commercial and marina facilities.

PROPERTY FEATURES

Black & Veatch International
has noted instances where indi-
vidual management plans or
practices could be enhanced to
meet US Environmental Pro-
tection Agency or Florida
requirements and standards,
[the Albany developers] and
their consultants have devel-
oped an EMP that adequately

_ addresses the key activities that

are anticipated to present risks
of environmental impacts and

degradation.”

The Black & Veatch report

.said Albany, whose major

shareholders are Lyford Cay
billionaire Joe Lewis, plus
golfers Tiger Woods and Ernie

- Els, had committed to provide

BEST with more plans and
information “at some point in

_ the future”.

This included plans for “an
overhead mist system”,
designed to combat insects and
odour, which are supposed to
be submitted to BEST a mini-

‘mum of 90 days prior to the

start of Phase II construction.

BEST is also supposed to
review and approve a sand
nourishment programme, and
receive plans for Albany’s
Phase II storm water drainage
plans.

In addition, Albany had com-
mitted to informing BEST of
any blasting work required “at
least two weeks’ prior to the
scheduled date, “to enable suf-
ficient time for dialogue and
agreement on this issue”.

Christopher Anand, Albany’s
managing partner, told Tribune
Business in an interview that

NOTICE

IN THE ESTATES OF ANTHONY WHYLLY
AND ARRON WINFIELD WHYLLY both of
Mount Pleasant Village in the Western District
of the Island of New Providence one of the
Islands of the Commonwealth of The Bahamas,

Deceased

NOTICE is hereby given that all persons having claim or
demand against the above Estates are required to send the
same the duly certified in writing to the Undersigned on or
before Friday the 3rd day of October A.D., 2008 after which
date the Executrix will proceed to distribute the assets having

regard only to the claims of which she shall then have had notice

b

the project had already com-
plied with one suggestion made
by Black & Veatch in its EMP
review, having named Rochelle
Newbold as the single person
for ensuring all the develop-
ment’s activities met the EMP
requirements.

“My overall view of this envi-
ronmental process is that both
governments held us to the
highest standards,” Mr Anand
said. “That is demonstrated by
the volume of evaluation and
testing to get an Environmental
Impact Assessment approved,
which was contingent on an
EMP approval.”.

He added that under the for-
mer Christie administration,

apart from BEST and Black &

Veatch as its third party review-

‘ er, the then-Prime Minister had

his own environmental consul-
tant, meaning the’ developers’
environmental submissions
were reviewed by three sepa-
rate parties.

“A full and thorough evalua-
tion was conducted,” Mr Anand
said. “This report really vali-
dates what I’ve maintained all
along. We did not sign a Heads
of Agreement until this process
was complete. And it was sub-
ject to an EMP that took two
years to complete.

“We’ve made major design
changes to make this project as
environmentally friendly as pos-
sible.”

Among the changes outlined
by Mr Anand was Albany’s
decision not to proceed with its

canals.in the northern part of
its 565-acre development site,
while the project will be the
‘anchor customer’ for the $15
million wastewater treatment
plant being developed by its
affiliate, New Providence
Development Company.

Mr Anand said Albany had

‘also reduced the amount of

lakes for its golf course from 60

_acres to 20 acres.

To line the golf course lakes,
he said Albany was using a
more expensive material,
sourced from Europe, that had
a 99 per cent success rate in pre-
venting water seepage and pen-
etration. The standard material
used in the Bahamas, Mr
Anand said, often leaked.

He added that Albany was
also using sheet piling in its
marina “at a considerable cost,’
millions of dollars. We’re spend-
ing millions and millions of
extra dollars” on environmental
sustainability.

Mr Anand said that instead
of depleting New Providence’s
water table and resources, as
Albany had been accused of,
the developers were actually
protecting it by using grey. water
- a by-product of the wastewater
treatment process - to irrigate
the golf course.

“There is water under our
lands, but they’re abandoned
wellfields, as they’ve been over-
pumped historically. They
haven’t been producing for a
long time, and the water Sup-
ply has been Seperate My
Anand said.

Pe eee errs
| $1.8bn Mayaguana project still moving

Bye nlt ene



@ By CARA BRENNEN-
BETHEL
Tribune Business Reporter



WORK on the $1.8 billion dol-
lar joint venture project for
Mayaguana appears to be on track

and is continuing, the deputy prime -.

minister told Tribune Business yes-
terday.

Brent Symonette said that as far
as he was aware, there were no con-
cerns regarding the project.

The development is a joint ven-

ture between the Government, in
the shape of the Hotel Corporation,
and the Boston-based I-Group, and
will include a mixed-use resort on
the island. Both parties own the
project through the Mayaguna
Development Company.
Although responsibility for the
development had been transferred
to the Ministry of Tourism during
the last Cabinet reshuffle, Mr
Symonette said that from all
accounts things were progressing
well, particularly following the

pounding the southern Bahamas
has taken with Tropical Storm Han-
na.

Mr Symonette said workmen
were still working on the island, and
a shipment of building supplies
recently arrived in Nassau to be tak-
en to Mayaguana.

He added that Sir Baltron Bethel,
the Hotel Corporation’s managing
director, was recently in Boston'to
meet the I- Group developers.

They were still deeply commit-

~ ted to the people of Mayaguana and

to the project, Mr Symonette said of
the developers.

During the 2008-2009 Budget
debate, Mr Symonette said work
on the development would be done
on a reduced scope due to deterio-
rating worldwide economic condi-
tions.

The development covers some
10,000 acres and includes an air-
port, utilities, marina village, resi-
dential lots, private villas and con-
dos, a boutique resort and nature
preserves.

“T don’t see us being directly

targeted, but you never know:

the Americans,” Mr Smith told
Tribune Business.

“The Bahamas doesn’t have
the kind of companies ‘that
would be under the watch the
Obama Bill prescribes. And
because of our TIEA, we’ve
met the IRS criteria for the
exchange of information on tax

“What more could you be

you’re going to go after tax

don’t have any double tax
treaties at all, and are not the

headquarters for large compa-_

nies.
“And if the Americans are
looking for records regarding
their citizens, they can get them
through existing law.” .
Mr Smith said that during his

. time in government office, he

understood that the US had
submitted two to three requests
under the TIEA for informa-
tion on Bahamian financial ser-
vices industry clients who had
been indicted in the US.
“They haven’t really used it
that much,” Mr Smith said of
the TIEA. “Many of our finan-

While the Bahamas would
need to watch an Obama presi-

That would be a powerful
weapon, as removing QI status

Mr Paton added that he was
“a bit dismayed” by the fact that
the US and its politicians con-
tinued to push forward with an

said the‘ministry is considering

The diplomatic break follows
a five-day war and Moscow's
recognition of two separatist
Georgia regions, South Ossetia
and Abkhazia, as independent
nations. The conflict has
brought tensions between
Moscow and the West to their
highest level since the end of
the Soviet Union.

already sent two military ships
bearing aid to Georgia, and the
USS Mount Whitney steamed
through the Dardanelles early
Wednesday and was expected
to pass through the Bosporus
later in the day. The two Turk-

Mediterranean to the Black

Boeing workers vote on contract

m@ By TIM KLASS
Associated Press Writer

SEATTLE (AP) — The
workers who assemble The
Boeing Company’s commercial
planes and some of its key
components prepared to vote
Wednesday on the company’s
“best and final” contract offer,
with union leaders recom-
mending they reject the deal
and go out on strike.

Despite $5,000 in signing
bonuses and raises averaging
11 per cent over the proposal’s
three-year span, leaders of the
International Association of
Machinists and Aerospace
Workers have said the offer
falls short.

The contract covers’ more\

than 27,000 commercial air-
plane production workers in
three states — about 25,000
workers in the Puget Sound
region represented by the
union’s District Lodge 751;
about 1,500 in District 24 in
Gresham, Oregon, a Portland
suburb; and about 750 in Dis-
trict 70 in Wichita, Kan.

Key issues include pay, out-
sourcing and retirement and
health care benefits.

On Wednesday, members
are scheduled to cast. two bal-
lots: one to accept or reject
Boeing’s latest offer and anoth-
er on whether to begin a strike.

A simple majority is required
to reject the contract, and a

two-thirds majority is needed
to call a strike, which would
trigger a work stoppage at
12:01am Thursday, when the
current contract expires.

Results of the vote are
expected Wednesday night.

. The average Boeing machin-
ist earns $27 an hour, or about
$56,000 a year, before overtime
and incentives.

In 2005, about 18,400
machinists in the Pacific North-
west and Wichita, Kansas,
struck for four weeks, forcing
the company to halt commer-

- cial airplane production.

The machinists assemble
Boeing’s commercial planes

and some key components.

Gary N Chaison, an indus-

trial relations professor at
Clark University in Worcester,
Mass., said he had been fol-
lowing developments closely
and rated the possibility of a
strike at about 50-50.

“The parties are going right
to the edge of the cliff,” Chai-
son said.

“This is a situation that’s ripe
for miscalculation.”

Boeing has about an eight-
year backlog of deliveries and
would lose as much as $100
million a day in deferred rev-

‘enue as well as further delays in

delivery of the new 787 com-
mercial jet, analysts said,
adding that riveters, electri-
cians, painters and other work-
ers would be hard-pressed to

@ By JOYCE M
ROSENBERG .
AP Business Writer

NEW YORK (AP) — With
gasoline prices expected to
remain uncomfortably high,
many small businesses are let-
ting some of their staffers work
at home. And some owners are
discovering that allowing
employees to telecommute can

‘require a different manage-.

ment style, and,some basic
trust.

Having telecommuters can
be challenging for a boss who’s
used to having everyone in the
office in plain sight — and who

“now has much less control over

someone who’s working in
pajamas with “The View” on
TV in the background. Or a

staffer who takes time away ©

from work during the day to
start cooking dinner or walk
the dog.

Owners can find themselves
worrying about the work get-
ting done, although it should
be clear from telecommuters’
output whether their produc-
tivity is suffering, or whether
they’re meeting deadlines.

Lloyd Princeton, who owns a

‘consulting firm with offices on

both coasts, has seven employ-
ees, including one who
telecommutes.

Princeton said he wonders
about what his home-based
staffer is doing.

“The biggest issue I have is
tracking time and knowing
said
Princeton, the. president of
Design Management Co. “The
doubt starts to happen when
he has offsite meetings — var-
ious doctor appointments or
the vet.”

But, Princeton said, “the gets
the work done. He does quali-
ty work for clients.”

Princeton said he tries to
find a balance in general with

his staffers —
attention to detail, but I do my
best not to, micromanage” —
but a telecommuting situation
presents more of a problem.

“It welcomes and invites the
doubt,” he said.

Of course, onsite workers
may come in late after a doc-

tor’s appointment or run per- .

sonal errands during the after-
noon just as Princeton’s work-
er does. But for many owners,
well, it just seems different
when they can see employees
coming and going.

Companies

Still, there are whole com-
panies and even industries that
now rely on employees who
work at, home, such as cus-
tomer service or telemarket-
ing firms.

And many use high-tech

tools, including conferencing:

and networking systems, to
ease communications between
telecommuters and the office,
arid some use software to help
monitor workflows.

Steve Lundin, who owns
BIGFrontier Communications
Group, a Chicago-based public
relations firm, has learned to
shrug off the doubts.

“You're trusting people to
do the work” Lundin said. “At
the end of the day, there is
some fluff time you’re paying
for, but what you bill out for is
far more than what you’re Pay:
ing them:”

_ But Lundin does see some
downsides to telecommuting:

“One of, the minuses is addi- .
tional management of people.”
He speaks to his telecom:

muters more often over the
phone, and that takes up time.

Lundin noted that his.con-
tact with onsite workers may
be just as non-face-to-face:as it
is with those who are telecom-
muting, so the lack of physical

“I tend to pay ,

contact isn’t a drawback.

“I talk to these people sev-
eral times a day,” he said of
telecommuters. “When I had
them in the office before,
they’d be in their:own office
down the hall and we did most
of our communicating by e-
mail.”

Tory Johnson, CEO of
Women For Hire, a New
York-based recruitment ser-
vices firm, finds that telecom-
muters can end‘up being out ©
the loop, a problem that can
occur no matter how hard the
entire staff works at keeping
everyone in touch. There can
be bruised feelings, whether
the staffer is missing out.on
something work-related, or
even a bit of gossip that every-

-one else was sharing.

That kind of disconnect is
one. of the downsides of
telecommuting in her firm.
“Some of our best ideas, our
most fun conversations come
from spontaneity, working in
a big open office and chitchat,”
Johnson said.

“We are sensitive to the fact

that some people work in dif-

ferent locations, but even with
that sensitivity, there are often
difficulties,” she said. Still, she
noted that her staffers have
chosen to work at home, so
“the onus is on you to maintain
communications.”

Some telecommuters — par-
ticularly if they live quite a'dis-
tance away from the office —
never show up in person, and
that can work quite well for
many companies. Lundin,
however, said he’s concerned
about his telecommuters los-

ing touch with the rest of the

workers.

His solution -is to require
them to put in some face time.
on Mondays and Fridays —
which in effect means there are
no full-time telecommuters i in
his company.

@ By MARTIN
CRUTSINGER -

AP Economics Writer

WASHINGTON (AP) —

Orders to US factories rose by
a larger-than-expected amount
in July as demand for com-
mercial aircraft, heavy machin-

ery and iron and steel all post-

ed solid gains.

The Commerce Depattment
reported Wednesday that new
orders increased by 1.3 per
cent in July; much stronger
than the 0.8 per cent increase
economists had been expect-
ing.

The July advance follows an
even bigger 2.1 per cent
increase in June and represents

INSIGHT

For the stories —
behind the news,
read Insight
Re) M Celato EW)

the fifth straight rise in orders.

Manufacturers have seen a
sharp slowdown in the US
economy offset by strong gains
in foreign demand, helped by a
weaker dollar which makes
their products more competi-
tive overseas.

The July strength was led by
a 28.1 per cent jump in com-
mercial aircraft, which
rebounded from a 21.3 per
cent decline in this volatile cat-
egory in the previous month.

Orders in all transportation
categories rose by 3.2 per cent
in July, the best showing in five
months. It was the second
straight month that orders for
motor vehicles rose, increas-
ing by 0.6 per cent in July fol-
lowing an even bigger. 3.2 per
cent June advance, __

The gains were viewed as
temporary, however, given that
automakers are struggling with
a weak economy and plunging

demand for once-popular

models because of high fuel
prices.:

Excluding transportation,
factory orders would have
risen by one per cent, slightly
below the 1.5 per cent econo-

Orders for ineaets 2
items expected to last at least
three years, rose 1.3 per cent in
July, unchanged from the pre-
liminary estimate the govern-
ment made last week. Orders
for nondurable goods, prod-
ucts such as fuel, food and
chemicals, increased 1.2 per
cent in July.

A number of categories
showed big gains in the month,
too.

Demand for iron and steel
jumped by five per cent, orders
for machinery rose 4.1 per cent
with demand for construction
machinery soaring by 17.9 per
cent. :

Much of this strength reflects
a boom in.US exports, the
standout performer while the
rest of the economy has been
hit by the worst slump in hous-
ing in decades and a severe
credit crunch.

But some economists have

_ expressed worries about how

long the export boom can last
given spreading weakness in
key overseas markets in
Europe and Japan.

Also, the dollar, which had _

been on a long slide, has come
off its recent lows, which could
translate into less of a price
advantage for American prod-
ucts against foreign goods.

_ The government reported
last week that the economy
expanded at an annual rate of
3.3 per cent in the April-June |
quarter, more than three times
the growth rate turned in dur-
ing the first three months of
this year.

The concern is that a slow-
