Bahamians urged
to prepare for Ike

lm By MEGAN REYNOLDS

BAHAMIANS across the
country should prepare for Hur-
ricane Ike today as it could hit
the southern Bahamas on Sun-
day and move through the
island chain throughout the
week.

Winds up to 150 mph, storm
surges up to 23 feet and heavy
rains can be expected in any of
the islands as the catastrophic
hurricane draws nearer.

CATASTROPHIC damage
brought by Hurricane Ike will
add to the infrastructural decay
not yet repaired after previous

hurricanes.

Prime Minister Hubert
Ingraham said the costly dam-
age caused by hurricanes is
something The Bahamas has
grown accustomed to, and there
is adequate funding to pay the
price of repairs.

He said: “The government
has had to reorder its spending
priorities, we have access to a

that we are policy holders of,
so when damage reaches a cer-
tain point we are able to make a

claim, and we are able to access"

funding from the Inter-Ameri-

can Development Bank.”





However, restoring damage
from hurricanes and tropical
storms is a constant battle.

“We have still not.completed
all the restoration work from
the last set of hurricanes in the

_Bahamas,” Mr Ingraham said,

“so this will add to the incom-

plete infrastructural work.”
Power cuts brought by Hur-

ricane Ike will also force the

_ government to pay the cost of

running generators at poten-
tially all 157 public medical clin-
ics throughout the islands, as
well as other government build-
‘ings.

Mr Ingraham said: “While
we are rather well-off compared
to many other islands, it is also
an expensive business to oper-
ate and manage.”

BAHAMAS ON ALERT: HURRICANE IKE/TROPICAL STORM HANNA

Don't delay ike
preparations
— Ingraham

PRIME Min-
ister Hubert
Ingraham yes-
terday
expressed con-
cern that many
Bahamians may
leave their
preparations for
Hurricane Ike
until the last minute.

“The National Emergency
Management Agency (NEMA)
has been very active and people
have been responsive so far, but
there are always some people
who are last-minute people,” he
said. Regarding the evacuation
of tourists should Hurricane Ike
pose a major threat to the
Bahamas, Mr Ingraham said
that he is satisfied that the coun-
try’s visitors will be safe.

“A good number of tourists
are staying and we would pro-
vide all the safety they require,”
he said. Prime Minister Ingra-
ham reported yesterday that
first assessments show that
- there was no major damage
from Tropical Storm Hanna.

“The Bahamas has a high
building code, and barring any
unforeseen catastrophic event,
our preparations, our buildings
and our ability to move people
to safe locations should min-
imise any fatality in the
Bahamas,” he said.

. The Tribune reported vester-
day that many Bahamians in
vulnerable inner-city communi-
ties seem unconcerned by the
possible impact of Hurricane
Ike. Despite the fact that Ike
may by a category four by the
time it reaches the Bahamas,
residents of flood-prone New
Providence communities are
taking a “wait and see” stance
and said they are confident that
their homes will withstand the
storm.

PRIME) ‘Minister Hubert
Ingraham” Said on Friday that

most aréas‘on'the island of Aba-.

co were not significantly impact-
ed by Tropical Storm Hanna
with the exception of North
Abaco.

"Tropical Storm Hanna has
‘just passed and from all reports,
damage has not been significant,
except in North Abaco where
communities of Sandbank are
flooded and persons have had to
move out, and that didn't hap-
pen until this morning so the
public school in Treasure Cay is
completely flooded and is likely
to be closed for a while,” Mr
Ingraham, MP for North Abaco
said on Friday.

"What happened to the resi-
dents of Sandbank in Abaco
and the school in Treasure Cay
is an example of what can hap-
pen with just a tropical storm
hits," he said.

"Ike is a very serious hurri-
cane and all Bahamas ought to
take it very, very seriously,” Mr
Ingraham added.



. NBy LLOYD ALLEN

SOME Nassau businesses are
being criticised for closing dur-
ing Tropical Storm Hanna.

As the storm made its way
through central and the north-
eastern Bahamas on Thursday,
virtually all private businesses
throughout the nation’s capital
were closed:

Nassau Tourism Development
board chairman Charles Klonaris
told The Tribune yesterday that
he does not think downtown
stores should have been closed.

- “The city should have been
wide open, and IJ see no reason
why most of the businesses should
have been closed when Hanna
came through,” he said.

He said this was especially the
case as the storm had a negative
affect on business, “due to the
absence of cruise ships that were
obviously diverted due to the
storm.”.

However Diamonds Interna-
tional Marketing manager Antho-
ny Smith said that the decision to
close their doors on Thursday was
the right call to make for his com-
pany.

Mr Smith said: “Prevention is
always better than cure.”

He feels that due to the
extreme gusts which are normal-
ly expected in the area during
rough storms, removing employ-
ees from possibly hazardous con-
ditions was a necessary step.

Mr Smith said that because of
various hurricanes and tropical
storms travelling trough the
Caribbean and Atlantic in the
past few weeks, cruise ship pas-
sengers and companies have dra-
matically reduced their arrival to
our shores, resulting in a drop in

sales for many downtown busi-
nesses. :

However the decision for com-
panies to close their doors tem-
porarily due to the storm, he feels
is something that was done in the
best interest of not only employ-
ees, but. also customers.

Trevor Basden, senior deputy
director at the Department of
Meteorology, said: “With a sys-
tem.so close to New Providence,
and with the high winds and rain
experienced Thursday night, if
that storm had sped up just-a lit-
tle, people could have been
caught up in that weather.”

He said that although it was

not the call of the Department of
Meteorology to instruct busi-
nesses to close on Thursday, he
feel it was a good choice to do
so. Quantum Duty Free Jewellery
store was among a handful of pri-
vate establishments in the down-

town area open for business on -

Thursday.

Though the store was‘open for .

the entire day, employees say that
there was “zero business”, which
they attribute to Hanna.

Other businesses open on »

Thursday included Colombian
Emeralds, two liquor stores and a
souvenir store all located near the
straw market.

Orphanages and senior homes
spared Tropical Storm Hanna

@ By LLOYD ALLEN

In gesponse to the possible

4 impactfHurricane Ike on Mon-
3 day, Bahamians are being warned

‘to take precautions to ensure the
protection of home, property, and
family.

' When it comes to members of

our society that are under the.

care of the state — such as those in

orphanages, senior homes, or

statutory homes like the Wille-
mae Pratt and Simpson Penn
Centres — preparedness is a mat-
ter of great importance not only
for officials, but.also for adminis-
trators.

Nakita Smith, administrative
assistant at the Children’s Emer-
gency Hostel, said the facility
hardly felt any ‘effects from Trop-
ical Storm Hanna, but staff are
fully prepared for Hurricane Ike,
which is expected to affect areas
of central and southern Bahamas
as early as Monday.

Ms Smith said: “Once the gen-
erator comes on andthe lights
come on, we are good.”

She noted that for the 33 chil-
dren living at the home, adequate
staffing during a storm is an issue

that has always been arranged
prior to impact.

She'said that apart from per-
sons working at the centre during

normal conditions, there are six.

staff members that are specifical-
ly rostered to be stationed at the
centre should a storm come our
way. Ms Smith said though ade-
quate food and water has already
been acquired for the children,
the centre cdn always use addi-
tional supplies. Director for the
Department of Social Services
Mellany Zonicle told The Tribune
that requests for additional food,
water, and personnel for govern-
ment sponsored facilities have
already been approved.

Mrs Zonicle added that fol-

‘lowing a request by her office,

installation, sand bag placement,
and other measures aimed at
securing structural integrity of the
various homes.

“Tf the hurricane is very severe,

’ and we feel that the buildings are

compromised, persons will be
moved to shelters,” said Mrs Zon-
icle. Mrs Zonicle says now that
Hanna is no longer a threat to
the Bahamas, her officers have

done an assessment of homes in.

the various islands, but are also
preparing for the Hurricane Ike,
which is the 9th named storm for
the 2008 hurricane season.

’ Mrs Zonicle said she spoke ©

with Cat Island social. worker
Shantell Culmer-Deveaux who
confirmed that the children’s cen-
tre on the island had not suffered
any damage from Hanna.

She added that the seniors’
home in North Andros and others
in Grand Bahama were all con-
tacted, and administrators con-
firmed that they were spared by
Tropical Storm Hanna.

Marcquel hopes to inspire with weight loss story




PICTURED (I-r) WILLIAMS Mills, past president of the Rotary Club of
Nassau Sunrise and Marcquel Bethel.

MARCQUEL Bethel spoke
on the topic “achieving weight
loss through medical interven-
tion” at a meeting of the Rotary
Club of Nassau Sunrise in hopes
of inspiring others with weight-
related problems.

From his earliest recollections
Mr Bethel had been overweight
and his life was held hostage
because of it.

In 2005, he tipped the scale at
over 520 lbs and experienced
numerous health complications
as a result of it.

The turning point came in 2006,
after medical consultation and
being told that at 35 years old he
may not see 40. This was a hard
pill to swallow. He had to do
something if he wanted to live

and live a rewarding and fulfilled *

life.

Mr Bethel opted for gastric
bypass surgery (stomach reduc-
tion) and the rest is history.

Today, he has lost more than

250lbs through the combination ~

of surgery, diet and exercise.

Many sacrifices had to be
made, such as his love of coke
soda and Bahamian food, for a
better life - a life with a future
and now a purpose.

As a member of Rotary, “giv-
ing above self” is a motto that he
adheres to.

Telling his story is his way of
“giving of self.” He hopes to
reach out to those who may be
going through extreme weight
issues.

Persons with any questions, can

bethel@hotmail.com.

Airport may

suspend flights on
Sunday evening



OFFICIALS at the Lynden Pindling International Airport
announced yesterday that they may have to suspend air traffic
late on Sunday as Hurricane Ike approaches.

In a statement issued yesterday, the Nassau Airport Develop-
ment Company (NAD) noted that the latest weather informa-
tion obtained from the MET office showed Ike entering the
southeast Bahamas with tropical storm force winds in the early:
morning on Sunday.

It is then predicted to reach hurricane strength around noon
on Sunday and progress through the Bahamas, bringing tropical
storm force winds to the New Providence area in the early morn-
ing on Monday.

NAD said its Air Traffic Services will continue to monitor the
information provided by the MET Office.

The company said that it does not foresee having to suspend
flights before late evening on Sunday, and is therefore projecting
normal operations at LPIA throughout the weekend.

NAD said yesterday’s statement is only intended to provide
information as a guideline, and that the company’s actions will
be directed on an ongoing basis by the progress of Hurricane
Ike.

It said that new information on the operational status of the
airport will be provided as it becomes available.

Bahamasair to offer extra flights



BAHAMASAIR will offer some additional flights this weekend
to clear the backlog of passengers.

Due to the delays and cancellations caused by Tropical Storm
Hanna earlier this week, the national flag carrier has made some
changes to its flight schedule for today and tomorrow.

Today, all flights will operate as scheduled, with Bahamasair
providing one extra service to Crooked Island and one ‘to Provo,
Turks and Caicos.

“These extra sections (flights) are intended to clear any backlog

of passengers who were unable to return to Nassau on their sched-
uled flights as a result of Tropical Storm Hanna,” Bahamasair said
yesterday in a press statement,
The additional séivice from Nassau to Crooked Island will depart
at 6.30am. The retumn flight v ‘willbe at 8am.
The extra flight to Provo will depart from Nassau at 9.15am, and
- depart from Provo and return to Nassau at 11.30am.

PRIME Minister Hubert Ingraham dropped the 'interim' from
Commander Stephen Russell's title to name him director of NEMA
at a live press conference about Hurricane Ike yesterday.

Former Royal Bahamas. Defence Force Officer Commander
Russell was appointed by the cabinet to lead the National Emer-

Evangelicals flock to McCain-Palin

JOHN McCain is, in some ways, an acci-
dental candidate.

Talk to delegates at ‘the Republican
National Convention this week, and many"
will admit that McCain was not their first
choice for president. é

Some will even concede that he was not
their second or even third choice.

Rudy Giuliani, Mitt Romney and Fred
Thompson all outpolled him in the months
leading up to the primaries.

Then in January, Mike Huckabee scored
a stunning victory in the Iowa caucuses
with the support of evangelical Christians.

Going back to the Reagan revolution
and, before it, the Roe decision, Christian
conservatives have filled the grassroots*
ranks of the Republican Party. In the 2004
presidential election, the Pew Research
Centre found they were the largest single
demographic group among voters for
George W. Bush, constituting 35 per cent
of his total.

In 2004, white evangelicals supported
President Bush over John Kerry 69 to 26
per cent, a slight increase over Bush’s large
’ margins over Al Gore in 2000, and enough
to help deliver GOP majorities in crucial
battleground states like Iowa and Ohio.

Until recently, polls had been showing
McCain lagging behind Bush’s levels of
support among Christian conservatives in
both 2004 and 2000.

But an August Pew survey showed
’ McCain had solidified his lead over Barack
Obama among this group by 68 to 24 per
cent.

That was before last tnonth’s Saddle-
back Civil Forum on the Presidency with
Pastor Rick Warren, where McCain for
the first time seriously engaged evangelical
voters. And it ‘was before he galvanized
their support by selecting Sarah Palin as his
running mate.

. One bellwether was James Dobson, pres-
ident of Focus on the Family. ‘

The influential evangelical leader said
in February that he could not. vote for
McCain as a matter of conscience.

After McCain’s selection of Palin last
week, Dobson told talk radio host Dennis
Prager, “I would pull that lever.”

McCain may be the presidential nomi-

NOTICE

nee, but the buzz this week was about °

Palin. Far from dampening enthusiasm for
the Alaska governor, news that her 17-
year-old daughter was pregnant — and the
perception that the media were piling on
her family — only seemed to heighten her
popularity.

David Barton, a former vice chairman
of the Republican ‘Party of Texas and

leader of a national evangelical organiza- “
tion, says, “When the announcement was |

made, my e-mail immediately lit up with
adjectives I haven’t seen in a long time
among evangelicals, Christians and con-

servatives.” He says the level of enthusiasm .

is greater thanin 2004.

Texas Lt. Gov. David Dewhurst provid-
‘ed another anecdotal tale. At a breakfast
with Texas delegates Monday morning, he
spoke about a discussion he had with an
evangelical pastor who was on his flight to
St. Paul. The pastor predicted 3 million to
5 million more Christian conservative vot-
ers would turn out for McCain because of
Palin.

In the end, however, it was McCain’s
show in St. Paul.

With the crescendo building all week
from Thompson to Huckabee to Giuliani to
Palin; the question remained: Could
McCain seal the deal — not only with
Christian conservatives, but also. with a
larger audience of Republican and inde-
pendent voters?

The old warrior laid out a plan Thursday
night to reform his own party, battle Wash-
ington corruption and keep. the nation
secure. It wasn’t a traditional partisan cam-
paign speech.

McCain was least convincing rambling
through political talking points. He was
inspiring when making his pledge for
reform, retelling his American elegy and
especially when i issuing his allegorical call to
arms.

One year ago, McCain’s campaign was
close to being vanquished.

With two months to go until the general

election, he has a fighting chance.

The Devil’s
minions
are at work
in Bahamas

EDITOR, The Tribune.

' ONE of the biggest reasons
why The Bahamas seems to
be in an economic and spiri-
tual morass, in my humble
submission, is due to the fact
that over the past two decades
a genre of so-called “men and

women of the cloth” have

emerged in this nation with a

‘vengeance. I make no, apolo-

gies for this bold and. funda-
mental position.

From the days of recon-
struction back in the great
USA, shortly after the fratri-
cidal Civil War, most Ameri-
can blacks from the Southern
States went directly into the
church and the pulpit.

This was seen as the fastest
avenué by which a poor, une-
ducated black man or woman
could advance socially and
economically. In fact, this
trend was so strong that we
witnessed the phenomenon of
the rise (and fall) of outlandish
“Father Divine”, “Daddy
Grace” and, of course, the
Honourable Elijah

Mohammed (The Messenger ,

of Allah). Here in our own
country, the law, the church
and politics have developed
into virtual “growth” indus-
tties. Back in the 1950’s when
few black Bahamians could
read or write, menial labour,

subsistence farming, fishing —

and the hospitality industry
were the normal outlet for the
creative energies of a majority
— black and conchy joe.
With the advent of democ-
racy on the micro level dur-
ing the 1960’s the law and the
church became popular roads
for those to travel who had
economic and social ambi-
tions.
. We saw the development of
pulpiteers like the late. H W
Brown; Reverend Leroy Cole-
brooke; Dr Charles Saunders,
et al. On the political front
people like Lynden Oscar Pin-
dling; Cecil Wallace- Whitfield;
Arthur Foulkes}; Ortland H
Bodie Sr; Randol Fawkes and
Clarence Bain were making
their respective marks.
Economically, few black
Bahamians were prepared or
able to challenge the suprema-

cy of the white Bahamian and
his foreign allies. It was only
during the early 1980’s that
the embryonic black and
conchy joe Bahamian business
person started to come into
the sunshine.

Today, in this blessed year
of Our Lord and Saviour two
thousand and eight, the pul-
pit has taken,over as the
fastest route to fortune and
fame. As a result, everyone —

‘his sister and his brother —

are apostles, bishops, pastors,

reverend doctors, revelators :.

and, of course, evangelists

(witha word from God, no’
less). The problem, I submit, is:

that far too many of these
individuals would not know
Jehovah if He was to be seat-
ed right up in their faces. In
fact, too many of them have
absolutely no knowledge of
Who God is and really could
care less.

So long as they minister and
lord over a “big” church, drive
the best vehicles and are able
to seduce and beguile nubile
young girls, doe-eyed boys,
low down and dirty, rusty men
and, of course, the starry-eyed
female worshippers.

Once “recognised” as a man
or woman of the cloth, the sky
then becomes the limit for
some of them in terms of their
abilities to raise funds, bam-
boozle the corporate world
and to link ‘up, bogusly, with
the politicians of the day. The
innocents are caught up in the
middle and we end up getting
just what Daffy Duck got.

They raise funds for this
cause and this event with no
measurable achievement; no
accountability and a stark
reluctance to share or divide
the income. Another favourite
vehicle whichis utilised by
many clergy is to find a
“cause” be it crime, societal
unrest or some sort of outcry
about sexual immorality and
run with it. People like Jesse
Jackson and the Reverend Al
Sharpton have finessed this

ability to the max. In the USA

Jackson and his Rainbow
Alliance were able to bam-
boozle and intimidate large
companies because they did

not meet racial quotas or did

no invest enough in black
areas. It is reputed that sey-
eral of his sons now own and
operate the largest beer dis-
tributorship in Chicago.

Al Sharpton with his
National Action Committee
has done the same then and
each year corporations
“donate” tens of millions of
dollars to his “causes”, or are
subjected to his tirades and
threatened boycotts. It would
be interesting to know how
many of these “donations”

ever reach the “cause or ben:
efit individuals who are not
connected to the man or
woman of God.

The same problem exists
here in The Bahamas. Crime
is now the whipping boy or
girl of society and its seems
that many are looking for a |
way to raise some easy money
to ‘fight’ crime. Mind you,
crime is supposed to be within
the purview ofthe police and
the elected government of the -
day. Yet, we see the specta-
cle of crime fighting organi-
zations and committees risin

up out of the societal ashes
like so many phoenix. They
are to be seen receiving dona-
tions and sponsoring special
community events but, at the —
end of the day, what has real-
ly been accomplished of a last-
ing value? You be the judge!

Yes, there are layers o
duplicity which conceals th
lack of accountability and/or
responsibilities. You will hear
about a board of directors
which, coincidentally I am
sure, is comprised of political
and social allies of the chair-
man or executive directors of
the so-called crime commit-
tee. The sad thing about this is
some of them actually get
away with fooling many
Bahamians into believing that °
they are about the business of
The Master and that they
actually are concerned with
the well-being and welfare of
the small man and woman.

’ The Devil, I submit, is still a

liar and his minions are at
work-in The Bahamas.

They love to sit up at the
headtable and to be publicly
recognised as a good man or
woman all the while they are
just like their father Diablo:
If 50 per cent of these. corpo-
rate donations to “crime fight-
ing groups” were to be donat-
ed directly to social pro-
grammes, without the middle
man or woman, much more
would and could be achieved.
Until then, however, ‘e char-
latans, tin gods and bogus
community transformers will
continue to prey on gullible
individuals and corporate cit-
izens who merely wish to salve
their collective consciousness.

Many of them, for political
reasons and biasness, will lam-
baste those whom they
oppose. Once the party they
would have supported is. in

power, some of them are

appointed to all sorts of gov-
ernment boards and corpora-
tions.at inflated and often
unknown stipends and hono-
rariums. They will speak, pub-
licly, on the radio and in the
newspapers on issues which
have absolutely nothing to do
with spiritual salvation.

To God then, Who will pull
down the walls of a false Jeri-
cho, in all things, be the glory.

exam results
improvement

THE youth arm of the Free
National Movement, the Torch-
bearers, congratulated the Minis-
ter of Education Carl Bethel and
other ministry officials for the
improvement in the overall
national examination results.
“Not only did the grades improve
in the Bahamas General Certifi-
cate of Education (BGCSE)

examinations but they also did in ©

the Bahamas Junior Certificate
(BJC) examinations.

“More than 60 per cent of the
grades awarded for the BGCSE
examinations were between "A"
and "D", according to informa-
tion released by the Ministry of
Education.on Wednesday.

This year there were 6,294
BGCSE candidates and 7,577
candidates for the BJC examina-
tions.The Torchbearers said thou-
‘sands of candidates who took the’
‘Bahamas Junior Certificate (BJC)
examinations improved this year’s
results and also improved the
overall national average. .

The Ministry of Education’s
Technical Cadet Corps Pro-
gramme held its induction cere-

mony, welcoming 105 students

from both the public and private
schools to the programme.

In attendance and bringing the
keynote address was the Minis-
ter of Education Carl Bethel, who
expressed that he felt inspired by
the young inductees whom he
applauded for making the bold
decision to enter the TCCP.

The minister praised the pro-
gramme, which was established
in September of 1990, and
through its mission seeks to:
“provide opportunities for stu-
dents interested in technology to
acquire skills necessary for suc-
cess in a technologically advanc-
ing society, and to assist in nation-
al development.”

He welcomed the programme’s
partnership with stakeholders
such as: the Water and Sewerage
Corporation; the Bahamas

Broadcasting Corporation; the:

Bahamas Electrical Corporation;
and the Bahamas Telecommuni-
cations Corporation.

Mr Bethel urged the students
to have open minds, as this will
help them to grow personally, and
enrich their education. -

He told the students they had

made the right choice, as those -

who enter the programme
become more disciplined in their
approach to studying, mature
more rapidly in their thinking,
and are generally better students.



Orla mete) itis

This he attributed to the varied
opportunities provided to young
people to discover new interests,
learn.new technical skills, rein-
force knowledge gained in class-
rooms, and further their educa-
tion after the programme. “The
Ministry of Education shares with
the TCCP, the belief that all stu-
dents have abilities.

A LACK of proper ventilation
at the General Post Office is forc-
ing some sections to close three
hours early and slowing down the
delivery of mail by about two
days. :

Employees of the letter sort-
ing, parcel post and Customs sec-
tions of the General Post Office
on East Hill Street are reportedly
working half-day shifts, leaving

~ work hours before knock-off time

due to "unbearable" conditions.

The air-conditioning unit for
the ground floor area is not func-
tioning and has been broken for
weeks. According.to Postmaster
General Godfrey Clark a private
company was contracted by the
Ministry of Works to install the
unit however the problem is still
not fixed.

"The Ministry of Works has
contracted a (private) company
who is installing some air condi-
tioning units in the parcel post

‘and letter processing area. The

contractors are in and .out
attempting to correct the prob-
lem,” he said. aes

Until then, employees in those
sections have been allowed to

‘ leave work early to escape the sti-

fling heat.

"T wish I could say exactly
(when the a/c will be installed) I
hope it can be done today. . .
because they (employees) are
leaving early around 2.30 or 3pm




instead of five. I know it's not the
most ideal situation, working in
an area in an enclosed building
with no air conditioning but we

‘are working as hard as we can to

get the problem solved".

Mr Clark admitted that the
faulty air-conditioning unit is hin-
dering mail processing but did not
specify how much impact the
shorter workdays will have on the
country's postal service.

"Obviously there will be some
slowing of the process," he said.

President of the Bahamas Pub-
lic Service Union John Pinder
placed the blame for the slow
repairs on the private company
which the job was out-sourced to.

He said his members are not
advocating for industrial action,
but would like to see the matter
resolved soon.

"They were awaiting some part
to connect some compressors, that
has been at least four weeks.
What happens is, any time a gov-
ernment agency has a problem
with the air conditioning system
and the a/c malfunctions and they
take a long time to get it correct-
ed, we have kind of a verbal
agreement, whereas they'll allow
those persons to work shifts so
some will work in the morning,
or some will work in the evening
because once the heat becomes
unbearable they'll have to leave.
The post office workers have
decided rather than having a split
shift, to-allow everybody to work
half-days and then go," said Mr
Pinder. - :

ESA spacecraft
completes the
flyby of Steins
asteroid }



â„¢ DARMSTADT, Germany

The Rosetta deep space probe
successfully passed close to an
asteroid 250 million miles from
Earth, the European Space
Agency said Friday night.

In a mission that may bring
man closer to solving the mys-
tery of the solar system’s birth,
the craft completed its flyby of
the Steins asteroid, also known
as Asteroid 2867 — now in the
asteroid belt between the orbits
of Mars and Jupiteg — at
around 3:15 p.m. EDT.

As planned, the spacecraft’s
signal was lost for about 90 min-
utes as engineers turned it away
from the sun and because the
craft was moving too fast for its
antennas to transmit.

The resumption of the craft’s
signal transmission was greet-
ed with cheers from ESA engi-
neers and technicians.

“We're extremely happy that
it worked,” mission manager
Gerhard Schwehm said, sipping
a glass of champagne after the
announcement from the control
room. “It’s a big relief. People
can relax a bit now and every-
thing seems fine.”

Schwehm said the agency
would work to get images and
other data collected by the
probe processed as soon as pos-
sible. He said the first images
should be released to the public
Saturday.

“The operation went very
well,” Paolo Ferri, the head of
the solar and planetary missions
division and Rosetta flight oper-
ations director, said in a short
speech after the announcement.

“The spacecraft is in exactly
the condition we expected,
which is good. All indications
are that everything was super
successful.”

Bahamians urged to get
ready for Hurricane Ike

FROM page one

seriously and we ask them not to wait until
Sunday or Monday to ook for items of
food or building materials, but to do so
now and as a matter of urgency.”

As Tropical Storm Hanna passed out of
the northern Bahamas, flooding Sandbank
and Treasure Cay in Abaco on Thursday
night, Hurricane Ike edged closer to the
archipelago and a watch was issued for the
southeastern Bahamas.

Ike was 460 miles east-northeast of
Mayaguana and Turks and Caicos at lati-
tude.22.9 degrees north and longitude 64.1
degrees west yesterday evening. |

The category three storm, with winds of
around 115mph, was moving west-south-
west at 1Smph yesterday, and expected to
continue on this course before it turns back
to the west on Sunday, and hitting
Mayaguana, Inagua, Acklins, Crooked
Island and Rum Cay.



‘Although the storm was a catastrophic
category three yesterday, Arthur Rolle,
director of the Bahamas Department of
Meteorology, said Ike is expected to
strengthen to category four when it takes a

turn through the central Bahamas on Tues-

day.
He said: “Hurricane Ike ig a very dan-
gerous storm. Just stretch your imagina-

_ tion to what an average of 140mph winds

can do.

“It would make sense for people to start
now, to complete whatever preparations
they need to do.”

The prime minister recalled the devas-
tation caused by category two hurricanes
Frances and Jeanne in 2004, and Hurricane

Andrew which battered North Eleuthera —

in 1992 with 155 mph winds and_-.23-foot
sea surges. :

The Department of Meteorology will
issue an advisory at 2pm today, expected to
be the first hurricane watch for the south-
east Bahamas.

Felipé Major/Tribune staff

When a watch is issued residents can
expect hurricane conditions, and winds
above 75mph within 36 hours.

Mr Ingraham said government agencies
are prepared for emergency operations,
drains throughout New Providence have
been upgraded, and local governments
throughout the islands have co-operated.

. Residents throughout the Bahamas are
urged to watch tomorrow’s update live on

ZNS and listen to regular updates on ZNS.

1540.

Commander Stephen Russell, director of
NEMA, said: “I can assure you at NEMA
we are constantly on watch, and will remain
to be activated while this hurricane is on
watch.

“We will continue to monitor Hurricane
Ike as it comes through and until it exits the
Bahamas sometime next week.” ,

To track the storm online log on to the

United States National Hurricane Centre
www.nhc.noaa.gov.

Emergency water supplies sent out

FROM page one

ed by the Red Cross, along with
Defence Force units to both
islands.

“A flight did go out this
morning and we were able to
get 20 cases of water on that
flight for Mayaguana, along
with some supply kits from the
Red Cross. A unit of Defence
Force marines went down to
assist them. Similarly, the same
thing was done with San Sal-
vador. Water and some basic
supplies were sent down there

to help prepare them for the’

approach of the next storm,”
interim director of NEMA
Commander Stephen Russell
told The Tribune.

NEMA has been able to
make contact with island
administrators who highlighted
their immediate needs. Weath-
er permitting, another flight
today or Saturday may be

arranged to send more supplies,
Commander Russell said.

Mayaguana ran low on water
because of an overdue visit
from the mailboat, chief coun-
cillor for the island Earnel
Brown said.

“We haven’t had a mailboat

‘service in quite a while so that

really has contributed to the
problem but we are getting by.

We didn’t have a scheduled stop ©

prior to the storm and since
then because of the weather the
mailboat hasn’t been able to
sail.”

He added that the mailboat is
scheduled to make weekly stops
at the island but can sometimes
take up to three weeks to bring

‘much-needed supplies.

Mr Brown said he is worried
about how long supplies will last
after Hurricane Ike, a strong
category four storm, rips
through the island.

“That really is a major con-

cern because if we have (heavy)

flooding and we lose electrical
power, we will be in a situation
that could be uncomfortable.”
_ According to Mr Brown, oth-
er than a two-day power out-
ige, Mayaguana recorded no
major damage from the storm.

Officer-in-charge of San Sal-
vador and Rum Cay Inspector
Derrick Ferguson said while the
islands under his watch fared as
Hanna churned through the
country necessities like fuel may
run low as they await supplies
from the mailboat.

“We’re doing just fine. We
have no major damage to build-
ings or flooding or loss of prop-
erty (to report) we only experi-
enced strong winds and swelling
of the ocean near the coastal

lines which was very minimal.”

He said residents were not at
a “point of desperation” but
needed extra supplies to meet
the high demand for water and
other basics.

As Ike approaches, Inspec-

’ tor Ferguson believes San Sal-

vador and Rum Cay are ready.

_ “The residents here in San
Salavador, first of all they’re no
strangers to storms, due to,our
location. Nevertheless, I believe
that they are not taking any-
thing lightly as it relates to Ike.

_ We’re all familiar to the damage

that storms can do. They still
have their various properties
battened up...and we at the
police department intend to

intensify our patrols and to’

make sure we are in. constant
communication with the local
community.”

The three shelters on San Sal-
vador and one shelter on Rum
Cay will be remain open to
accommodate persons needing
shelter from Ike. \

Acklins, Crooked Island and
Inagua also received basic sup-
plies from NEMA in the wake
of Tropical Storm Hanna.

Rubie Nottage tenure set to end

FROM page one

course”.
When asked yesterday for

any additional comment on the ~

matter, the prime minister
refused.

Likewise, an invitation was
extended to Chief Justice Sir
Burton Hall, who refused to
comment directly, stating only
that he could not speak on the
matter “at this time”.

Calls to Justice Nottage and
the president of the Bar Asso-
ciation Wayne Munroe were

not returned up to press time
last night .

Appointed in April, Justice
Nottage will turn 65 - the age
justices are constitutionally
required to retire - in October.

According to the Constitu-'

tion, a justice’s term can be
extended until his or her 67th
birthday by the governor gen-
eral, if the prime minister makes
such a recommendation after
consultation with the leader of
the opposition.

Additionally, an extension
can also be granted allowing
time for the conclusion of all

live cases before a justice who is
due for retirement.

The wife of former PLP Cab-
inet minister and MP Kendal
Nottage, Justice Nottage’s
appointment by the Judicial and
Legal Services Commission was
met with both criticism and sup-
port from a cross-section of the
country.

Mrs Rubie Nottage was men-
tioned in the 1984 Commission
of Inquiry into drug trafficking
in the Bahamas and almost 20
years ago she was indicted in
the US on drug money-laun-
dering charges. However, US

Wife accused of throwing ‘corrosive’ solvent

FROM page one

The accused is a nail techni-
cian by profession, and it is
alleged that she threw the ace-
tone — a solvent used to remove
artificial nails and nail polish —
in her husband’s face and on his
back during a domestic dispute.

Sgt Sean Thurston said the
prosecution had no objection

to bail.

He did, however, note the
seriousness of the alleged
offence, saying it carried a max-
imum penalty of 20 years in
prison.

According to the prosecutor,
the accused and victim live
together and have children.

He also told the court that
the victim had been released
from hospital, but medical

reports indicated that he would
need continuous medical treat-
ment.

Noting that the prosecution
did not object to bail, Magis-
trate Gomez set bail in the sum
of $10,000 with one surety.

The case was adjourned to
September 24 and transferred
to Court 10, Nassau Street.

!

authorities have never acted on
the indictment.

While some believed that she
should not have been appointed
until a court indictment against
her in the United States from
the 1980s had been cleared up,
others felt she was eminently
qualified for the position.

Justice Nottage has 38 years
of legal experience behind her,
having served as general coun-
sel to the Grand Bahama Port
Authority and charicellor and
legal adviser to the Anglican
Diocese of the Bahamas and
the Turks and Caicos.

Archer shot

FROM page one

A young man was shot in
Major Road, Yellow Elder, at
around 11pm on Thursday,
when a man in a black hooded
jacket holding a handgun
approached with another man
and fired shots at a 17-year-old
boy, hitting him in the left leg.
He is in stable condition in hos-
pital.

We are ready for
Ike onslaught,
says Ingraham

FROM page one

sau, is being completed today.

Government departments also used yesterday and today to
check generators supplying power to medical clinics are opera-
tional, food and water supplies are adequate and the Department
of Public Works completes all essential jobs.

Mr Ingraham said: “Hurricane Ike is a serious storm and must be
taken very seriously i in the Bahamas.

“The various agencies of the Government are prepared to go into
operation.

“The department of public health, ministry of education, and pub-

‘lic works now has the opportunity to complete things before the

storm hits.

“We are also very pleased with the co-operation and assistance
of local government authorities in the Family Islands.”

A total of 130 shelters will open throughout the Family Islands
in case of emergency, and 26 shelters will open for vulnerable res-

-idents of New Providence.

The largest shelter in Nassau is the Church of God in Joe Far-
rington Road with a capacity to hold over 400 people.

Residents of low-lying areas prone to flooding such as Pinewood
Gardens, Bain Town and parts of the inner-city are encouraged to
seek shelter, as well as people whose houses are unlikely to with-
stand the force of category four hurricane winds.

A special shelter will also open in Nassau to accommodate up to
50 people with physical disabilities at the Bahamas Association for
the Physically Disabled in Dolphin Drive.

Officers from the Royal Bahamas Defence Force and the Red
Cross will manage the shelters, and RBDF officers will be deployed
wherever needed.

RBDF Commander Clifford Scavella said: “We want to ensure
the Bahamian people that their families will be secured and the
RBDF will offer and do whatever is necessary to ensure that all
Bahamians have comfort as we assist the National Emergency

Management Agency (NEMA) in their undertakings.”

As Hurricane Ike headed for the south-eastern Bahamas yes-
terday, Mr Ingraham warned: “Residents of the southern Bahamas,
Inagua, Mayaguana, Rum Cay and Acklins should take seriously
the warnings issued by the Department of Meteorology and com-
plete their preparations forthwith.

“Other areas of the Bahamas should be on alert for other alerts
issued by the department to carry out their preparations today.”

Severe floods
hit low-lying
communities:

FROM page one

Point, blamed the ineffective drainage system in Seco Town — sit-
uated west of Pinder’s Point — as the reason for the flooding ‘in the
area.

“The flap that drains the water out was broken and drains in the
area are blocked and we have a lot of standing water that has set-
tled in the street,” he said during an official island update at the
Administrator’s Office in Freeport.

Various members of the Grand Bahama Disaster Consultative

_ Committee were present.

Rufus Johnson, administrator for West Grand Bahama, report-
ed that'sea water from the bayside came across Bayshore Road.

“We had about eight to 10 foot seas on the southern side of
Bayshore Road, but the water on the road had cleared up in the
afternoon,” he said.

There was no flooding at Fishing Hole Road, he said.

Mr Johnson reported that only 14 persons sought shelter at the
Eight Mile Rock High School gymnasium.

Island administrator Alexander Williams reported that Hanna

did not cause any major damage on the island and no injurics
were reported as a result of the storm.
_ “lam able to report that there was nothing out of the ordinary,
only some localised flooding in areas but nothing to displace any-
one, and from all indications the roads are still passable,” he told
The Tribune.

In addition to the flooding, strong winds were responsible for
some downed powerlines and trees in Freeport, and East Grand
Bahama.

Freeport meteorologist Donna Duncombe reported that winds
reached a high of 47 knots or 55 mph on Grand Bahama.

Weather officials also reported that 2.3 inches of rainfall was
recorded at Grand Bahama International Airport.

Although Hanna had left the Bahamas around noon, Ms Dun-
combe said Grand Bahama remained under tropical storm warning
until 3pm when it would be discontinued during the next advisory
from the Bahamas Meteorology Department.

In Freeport, wind brought down a few tree branches and there
was minor flooding in some streets.

Residents of Queen’s Cove reported no major flooding in that
area, which is vulnerable to flooding from the north shore during
hurricanes. Only two shelters were opened in Freeport. There
were reports that seven persons turned up at the Special Needs shel-
ter at Christ the King Church Hall in Freeport.

Lillian Quant-Forbes, assistant director of social services in
Freeport, said the Maurice Moore Primary School shelter, desig-
nated for residents of East End, did not receive any persons up until
1.30am on Friday and was closed.

Flooding was also reported in the east, where East End residents
experienced more intense conditions as Hanna passed east of them
around 2am on Friday.

Lawrence Laing, local government chief councillor for the area,
reported very strong winds and rough seas.

Minister of Housing Kenneth Russell, MP for High Rock, also
reported that there were downed powerlines near the graveyard i in
East End, as well as on Sweeting’s Cay.

He noted that, despite minor flooding of the road between Pel-
ican Point and McCLean’ s Town, everything was fine.

Government offices opened for normal business, but public
and private schools remained closed on Friday. The Grand Bahama
airport also remained closed.

Mr Williams said Grand Bahama residents should continue to

pay close attention to weather reports on Hurricane Ike.

“We are now going to have to gear up and bracing ourselves for
that system,” he said.

Meteorologist Duncombe said that conditions will be good for
the weekend and advised residents to prepare for Ike, “Although
the system is 1,000 miles away, it doesn’t mean that we should
not be concerned,” she said. ~

As forecast models predict that Ike may pass over southern
Andros. Ms Duncombe said Grand Bahama can expect to receive
some tropical storm conditions by late Monday evening and Tues-
day.

o-time champ Serena
back in US Open final

@ By HOWARD FENDRICH
AP Tennis Writer

NEW YORK (AP) — Sere-
na Williams wound up and
smacked a shot directly at
Dinara Safina early in the sec-
ond set of their U.S. Open semi-
final.

The ball hit Safina near her
shoulder, ending the point, and
she quickly turned her back to
the net, muttering as she walked
away, ignoring Williams’
attempts to apologize.

Not much later Friday,
Williams tried again to say “Sor-
ry,” except this time both play-
ers were standing at the net
after the American wrapped up
a 6-3, 6-2 victory. Now Williams
can take aim at a third champi-
onship at Flushing Meadows

and ninth Grand Slam title ©

overall.

Hard to believe her very first
major title came in 1999 at the
U.S; Open.

“I just am excited to obvi-
ously still be here,” Williams
said, “and, 10 years later, still
putting up a major fight.”

It’s her first U.S. Open final
since 2002, when she beat older
sister Venus. This time, they
met in the quarterfinals, and
Venus offered advice about fac-
ing Safina, then sat in the stands
Friday, cheering. The siblings’
parents, who also serve as their
coaches, were there, too, after
skipping the all-Williams match.

“J was thinking to myself,
’°OK, if you’re going to beat
your sister, you have to go all
the way,”’ said their mother,
Oracene Price.

Next up for Williams: Jelena
Jankovic. ;

“Overall, she’s, I think, the

strongest player on the tour,.

together with her sister,” said
the second-seeded Jankovic.
“Nobody has the power that
they*have. We cannot com-
pare.” Bes = ss

Jankovic eliminated Olympic
gold medalist Elena Dementie-
va 6-4, 6-4. It will be Williams’
12th Grand Slam final, and
Jankovic’s first, and in addition
to the silver trophy at stake, the
winner will rise to.No. 1 in the
rankings next week.

The final is scheduled for Sat-
urday night, but forecasts calling
for rain much of the day
prompted tournament organiz-
ers to announce contingency
plans that could include post-
poning the match until Sunday.

“T’m ready to play tomorrow. '

Hopefully we can,” Williams
said. “If not, I’ll be ready for
Sunday, Monday, Tuesday —
doesn’t matter.”

She got off to a shaky start
against Safina, the younger sis-
ter of 2000 U.S. Open men’s
champion Marat Safin. Broken
in her first service game,
Williams fell behind 2-0, but she
won seven of the next eight
games, eventually doing a much
better job than Safina of dealing
with wind that gusted at over
20 mph.

Safina wound up with 41
unforced errors, and she repeat-
edly rolled her eyes or shook
her head or shouted at herself in
English or Russian, much the
way her brother does. A few
points after being pelted by the
ball, Safina hit her fifth double-
fault of the match and yelled,
“J hate the wind!” Two. points
after that, Safina pushed a back-
hand long and Williams broke
to lead 2-1 in the second set.

“T was behaving like a really
spoiled girl,” Safina said.

The whipping air played hav-
oc with serve tosses — the
women combined for 11 dou-
ble-faults — and all manner of
other strokes. The US. flag
above the video board at one

.end of Arthur Ashe Stadium
rippled so loudly that Safina

turned to glare at it before one ©

serve.

“T thought, OK, if it’s so
windy, then I’m not going to go
for sO many winners,” said
Williams, who didn’t produce
her first winning forehand until
the match was 30 minutes old.

Still, she was gritting her
teeth, pumping her fists and hol-
lering, showing the will to win
her mother described as
“unending.”

“Everything,” Price said, “is
supposed to be hers.”

Down 2-1, Williams broke
Safina, but needed three break
points in that game to do it. On
the second, Safina tried a drop
shot that Williams charged, hit-
ting a ball toward her foe’s face.
Safina ducked and the ball went
long. Eventually, a missed fore-
hand by Safina made it 2-2

_ there.

Williams broke to a 5-3 lead
when Safina put a forehand into
the net, and a similar miscue
ended the set in the next game.

Safina‘ didn’t go quietly,

breaking at love to tie the sec-.

ond at 1-all. It was in the next
game; though, that Safina could-
n’t get out of the way after try-
ing another drop shot that
Williams sent back at her body.

Safina said that upset her, but

_she alsq acknowledged, “It’s all

in the rules. I can only be angry
with myself for hitting a bad
drop shot.”

When they spoke after the
match, Williams said: “I didn’t
mean it, OK?”

“T was, you know, nearly
mortified that I hit her,”
Williams said later.

Jankovic, meanwhile, lost
eight of the first nine points and
fell behind 2-0 and 4-2. But as
Dementieva became more ten-
tative and more erratic,
Jankovic reeled off five consec-
utive games to claim the first
set and a 1-0 edge in the sec-

ond.

Jankovic also trailed by. a
break at 3-2 in the second set,
before coming back again. She
got plenty of help — 42 of the
66 points Jankovic won came
from unforced errors by the
fifth-seeded Dementieva.

Jankovic entered the match
with an 0-4 record in major
semifinals, including losses at
this year’s Australian Open and
French Open. But she kept
tracking down balls, running
along the baseline and stretch-
ing her racket, extending points
until Dementieva missed.

- Several times, Jankovic

wound up doing the splits at the -

end of a point. She sometimes
would bend over to catch her
breath between points, or stop
to chat with spectators. When
she got to set point in the first
with Dementieva serving,
Jankovic drew a time violation
warning from chair umpire

-Lynn Welch for pausing to wipe

away sweat with a towel.’
The turning point might have

‘come a little earlier, with

Dementieva up 4-2 and love-30
on Jankovic’s serve. Two more
points, and Dementieva would
have served for the opening set.

Instead, this is how things
went: Dementieva missed three
service returns, and Jankovic’s
backhand winner ended a 21-
stroke point and the game.
Dementieva began the next
game by double-faulting, and
eventually was broken when‘a
67 mph serve put her on the
defensive.

“Mentally, I feel I’m a lot
stronger, because I really
believe in myself. I really want
to do this, and it’s about time
for me to make that step for-
ward to break that barrier,”
Jankovic said. “I want to win a
Grand Slam, and this is why I
came here.”

That’s why Williams came,
too, of course.

“She has a lot of pressure to
win her first Grand Slam,”
Williams said, “and I’m just
enjoying every moment.”

‘Choo Choo’ Mackey and Major
‘Pain’ to headline First Class card

@ By BRENT STUBBS
Senior Sports Reporter
bstubbs@tribunemedia.net

WHILE 'the Bahamian public gets
ready for Hurricane Ike, First Class
Promotions is preparing to host a. dou-
ble whammy on its next professional
boxing show.

On Saturday, September 20 at the
Kendal Isaacs Gymnasium, First Class
Promotions have, announced that
Meacher ‘Pain’ Major and Jermaine

‘Choo Coo’ Mackey, the, country’s top:

two pugilists, will headline the card
being dubbed: “No Stopping Us
Now.”

For Major, who will be featured in
the 10-round main event, his bout will
be:an eliminator-for his shot at the
British Commonwealth lightweight
title.

Mackey, on the other hand; will be -

in the eight-round co-main event in
the aftermath of claiming the British
Commonwealth title in his last bout.

The 26-year-old Major, who cur-
rently have a 15-3 win-loss record, said
he’s been inspired by the performance
of Mackey and intend to make good
on his bid to join him as a Common-
wealth champion.

“I’m grateful for the opportunity
and I want to thank the Lord almighty
and First Class Promotions for get-
ting the fight for us so that we can
move to the next level,” Major stated.

After pulling off an eight round
decision over Luis Bolano in his last
fight on May 25, Major said he’s been
training extensively. But he noted that
he got caught in the rain a couple
mornings this week.

“I’m just staying focussed and keep-
ing my eyes on the prize. I’m not try-
ing to look back on the previous fights
that I had. I just try to learn from
those fights and improve on the mis-
takes that I made,” he stated.

Known for his quick and furious
action in the ring, Major said he is
going to promise the Bahamian public
that it will be a show that they will
not want to miss.

“This is to get me to the Common-
wealth fight, so I’m not taking ‘this
fight lightly,” he insisted. “I’m going
out there real focussed and hopefully
at the end I will be victorious.

“If I see where I can stop him and
take him out, then that’s what it’s

. going to be. I don’t know much about
him. But I know his trainer and all of
his fighters are real smart and good
defenders. So I just have to go out
there and pick him apart.”

Once he’s is successful against the
Dominican, Major said he intend to
travel to Florida to get the necessary
sparring sessions that he will need to
prepare him for the British title fight.

“After watching Jermaine fight for
his title, | saw how tough his oppo-
nent was,” Major said. “I don’t want to
put myself in that predicament.

“It was a good fight and I really
want to congratulate him. It just give
me the desire to go out there and try
to win the British Commonwealth title

in the first round...

As the World Boxing Association’s
FedeCaribe and Bahamas lightweight
championMajor said he;would like to
add the British title to his resume.

“This is another stepping stone for

me to get another title,” he pointed
out. “After the Commonwealth title,
hopefully I can get a chance to fight
for one of those world titles or conti-
nental titles in the US that can prepare
me for a world title shot.”

Despite getting caught in the rain,
Major said it has hampered his train-
ing because he have his own equip-
ment at home and he car still work-
out.

He thanked his coaches Gregory
Storr, Ray Minus Jr and Delvin ‘Blue’
Scott for getting him ready.

Coming off his successful bid to win
the British title fight over African
Michael Gbenga in a grueling 12-
round encounter on July 19, Mackey
said he’s stayed in the gym training.

“As everyone know, it was a tough
fight, but it has prepared me even fur-
ther in boxing,” he charged. “I’m
ready and eager to go out there with
that same hungriness to win.” —

Admitting that he suffered some

deficiencies. that hurt him against

Gbenga, the 28-year-old Mackey said

- he’s looking forward to improving on

what he did against his new opponent.

“The last fight I had too much
offense. I think I overworked myself
and my opponent wasn’t tired .because
I had too much offense,” stressed

_ Mackey; who is 17-3. ’

“It was a good thing and it was a
bad thing. I just hope to improve on
that. I just want to go out there and
put on a good fight.”

To the Bahamas as Hurricane Ike
looms, Major advised everyone to “get
your shutters and make sure that you
have all of your supplies. I also wish
everybody peace and hope that we
can all get together and look out for
our neighbors and live as one.’

Mackey, likewise, stated: “I’ve been
getting the calls to batten up houses,
so it’s a long waiting list. We tend to
wait too late. If we do it early, we will
be much more ready for the hurri-
canes when they come.”

As for the impending inclement
weather, Mackey said rain or not, he
will be training.

MOUNT Tabor Full
Gospel Baptist Church was
transformed into a “Garden

the renewal of wedding vows
by Bishop Neil C Ellis and
his wife of 25 years, Patrice
Ellis, on September 3.

The church was filled with
family, friends and well-wish-
ers for the service, which was
presided over by Reverend
Dr Charles W Saunders.

The charge was given by
Anglican Archbishop Drexel
Gomez. :

Following the service, a
reception was held on the

_ grounds of the church. Fol-
lowing the reception, a pri-
vate dinner party was held
at the Sandals Royal
Bahamian Resort, which was
the site of the reception for
the original exchange of
vows 25 years ago. \

person helped to sum up the

occasion. He described the. :

event as “love in silver.”

“At a time when the con-
cept of a Christian marriage
and the institution of the
family is under virtual attack,
it is not only admirable but
also helpful to the society for
Bishop Ellis to publicly re-
proclaim that he loves his
wife as Christ loved the
church and for Patrice to
publicly re-affirm her love
for her husband,” the cler-
gyman said.

Bahamians urged
to prepare for Ike

lm By MEGAN REYNOLDS

BAHAMIANS across the
country should prepare for Hur-
ricane Ike today as it could hit
the southern Bahamas on Sun-
day and move through the
island chain throughout the
week.

Winds up to 150 mph, storm
surges up to 23 feet and heavy
rains can be expected in any of
the islands as the catastrophic
hurricane draws nearer.

CATASTROPHIC damage
brought by Hurricane Ike will
add to the infrastructural decay
not yet repaired after previous

hurricanes.

Prime Minister Hubert
Ingraham said the costly dam-
age caused by hurricanes is
something The Bahamas has
grown accustomed to, and there
is adequate funding to pay the
price of repairs.

He said: “The government
has had to reorder its spending

that we are policy holders of,
so when damage reaches a cer-
tain point we are able to make a

claim, and we are able to access"

funding from the Inter-Ameri-

can Development Bank.”





However, restoring damage
from hurricanes and tropical
storms is a constant battle.

“We have still not.completed
all the restoration work from
the last set of hurricanes in the

_Bahamas,” Mr Ingraham said,

“so this will add to the incom-

plete infrastructural work.”
Power cuts brought by Hur-

ricane Ike will also force the

_ government to pay the cost of

running generators at poten-
tially all 157 public medical clin-
ics throughout the islands, as
well as other government build-
‘ings.

Mr Ingraham said: “While
we are rather well-off compared
to many other islands, it is also
an expensive business to oper-
ate and manage.”

BAHAMAS ON ALERT: HURRICANE IKE/TROPICAL STORM HANNA

Don't delay ike
preparations
— Ingraham

PRIME Min-
ister Hubert
Ingraham yes-
terday
expressed con-
cern that many
Bahamians may
leave their
preparations for
Hurricane Ike
until the last minute.

“The National Emergency
Management Agency (NEMA)
has been very active and people
have been responsive so far, but
there are always some people
who are last-minute people,” he
said. Regarding the evacuation
of tourists should Hurricane Ike
pose a major threat to the
Bahamas, Mr Ingraham said
that he is satisfied that the coun-
try’s visitors will be safe.

“A good number of tourists
are staying and we would pro-
vide all the safety they require,”
he said. Prime Minister Ingra-
ham reported yesterday that
first assessments show that
- there was no major damage
from Tropical Storm Hanna.

“The Bahamas has a high
building code, and barring any
unforeseen catastrophic event,
our preparations, our buildings
and our ability to move people
to safe locations should min-
imise any fatality in the
Bahamas,” he said.

. The Tribune reported vester-
day that many Bahamians in
vulnerable inner-city communi-
ties seem unconcerned by the
possible impact of Hurricane
Ike. Despite the fact that Ike
may by a category four by the
time it reaches the Bahamas,
residents of flood-prone New
Providence communities are
taking a “wait and see” stance
and said they are confident that
their homes will withstand the
storm.

co were not significantly impact-
ed by Tropical Storm Hanna
with the exception of North
Abaco.

"Tropical Storm Hanna has
‘just passed and from all reports,
damage has not been significant,
except in North Abaco where
communities of Sandbank are
flooded and persons have had to
move out, and that didn't hap-
pen until this morning so the
public school in Treasure Cay is
completely flooded and is likely
to be closed for a while,” Mr
Ingraham, MP for North Abaco
said on Friday.

"What happened to the resi-
dents of Sandbank in Abaco
and the school in Treasure Cay
is an example of what can hap-
pen with just a tropical storm
hits," he said.

"Ike is a very serious hurri-
cane and all Bahamas ought to
take it very, very seriously,” Mr
Ingraham added.



. NBy LLOYD ALLEN

SOME Nassau businesses are
being criticised for closing dur-
ing Tropical Storm Hanna.

As the storm made its way
through central and the north-
eastern Bahamas on Thursday,
virtually all private businesses
throughout the nation’s capital
were closed:

Nassau Tourism Development
board chairman Charles Klonaris
told The Tribune yesterday that
he does not think downtown
stores should have been closed.

- “The city should have been
wide open, and IJ see no reason
why most of the businesses should
have been closed when Hanna
came through,” he said.

He said this was especially the
case as the storm had a negative
affect on business, “due to the
absence of cruise ships that were
obviously diverted due to the
storm.”.

However Diamonds Interna-
tional Marketing manager Antho-
ny Smith said that the decision to
close their doors on Thursday was
the right call to make for his com-
pany.

Mr Smith said: “Prevention is
always better than cure.”

He feels that due to the
extreme gusts which are normal-
ly expected in the area during
rough storms, removing employ-
ees from possibly hazardous con-
ditions was a necessary step.

Mr Smith said that because of
various hurricanes and tropical
storms travelling trough the
Caribbean and Atlantic in the
past few weeks, cruise ship pas-
sengers and companies have dra-
matically reduced their arrival to
our shores, resulting in a drop in

sales for many downtown busi-
nesses. :

However the decision for com-
panies to close their doors tem-
porarily due to the storm, he feels
is something that was done in the
best interest of not only employ-
ees, but. also customers.

Trevor Basden, senior deputy
director at the Department of
Meteorology, said: “With a sys-
tem.so close to New Providence,
and with the high winds and rain
experienced Thursday night, if
that storm had sped up just-a lit-
tle, people could have been
caught up in that weather.”

He said that although it was

not the call of the Department of
Meteorology to instruct busi-
nesses to close on Thursday, he
feel it was a good choice to do
so. Quantum Duty Free Jewellery
store was among a handful of pri-
vate establishments in the down-

town area open for business on -

Thursday.

Though the store was‘open for .

the entire day, employees say that
there was “zero business”, which
they attribute to Hanna.

Other businesses open on »

Thursday included Colombian
Emeralds, two liquor stores and a
souvenir store all located near the
straw market.

Orphanages and senior homes
spared Tropical Storm Hanna

@ By LLOYD ALLEN

In gesponse to the possible

4 impactfHurricane Ike on Mon-
3 day, Bahamians are being warned

‘to take precautions to ensure the
protection of home, property, and
family.

' When it comes to members of

our society that are under the.

care of the state — such as those in

orphanages, senior homes, or

statutory homes like the Wille-
mae Pratt and Simpson Penn
Centres — preparedness is a mat-
ter of great importance not only
for officials, but.also for adminis-
trators.

Nakita Smith, administrative
assistant at the Children’s Emer-
gency Hostel, said the facility
hardly felt any ‘effects from Trop-
ical Storm Hanna, but staff are
fully prepared for Hurricane Ike,
which is expected to affect areas
of central and southern Bahamas
as early as Monday.

Ms Smith said: “Once the gen-
erator comes on andthe lights
come on, we are good.”

She noted that for the 33 chil-
dren living at the home, adequate
staffing during a storm is an issue

that has always been arranged
prior to impact.

She'said that apart from per-
sons working at the centre during

normal conditions, there are six.

staff members that are specifical-
ly rostered to be stationed at the
centre should a storm come our
way. Ms Smith said though ade-
quate food and water has already
been acquired for the children,
the centre cdn always use addi-
tional supplies. Director for the
Department of Social Services
Mellany Zonicle told The Tribune
that requests for additional food,
water, and personnel for govern-
ment sponsored facilities have
already been approved.

Mrs Zonicle added that fol-

‘lowing a request by her office,

installation, sand bag placement,
and other measures aimed at
securing structural integrity of the
various homes.

“Tf the hurricane is very severe,

icle. Mrs Zonicle says now that
Hanna is no longer a threat to
the Bahamas, her officers have

the various islands, but are also
preparing for the Hurricane Ike,
which is the 9th named storm for
the 2008 hurricane season.

’ Mrs Zonicle said she spoke ©

with Cat Island social. worker
Shantell Culmer-Deveaux who
confirmed that the children’s cen-
tre on the island had not suffered
any damage from Hanna.

She added that the seniors’
home in North Andros and others
in Grand Bahama were all con-
tacted, and administrators con-
firmed that they were spared by
Tropical Storm Hanna.

Marcquel hopes to inspire with weight loss story




PICTURED (I-r) WILLIAMS Mills, past president of the Rotary Club of
Nassau Sunrise and Marcquel Bethel.

MARCQUEL Bethel spoke
on the topic “achieving weight
loss through medical interven-
tion” at a meeting of the Rotary
Club of Nassau Sunrise in hopes
of inspiring others with weight-
related problems.

From his earliest recollections
Mr Bethel had been overweight
and his life was held hostage
because of it.

In 2005, he tipped the scale at
over 520 lbs and experienced
numerous health complications
as a result of it.

The turning point came in 2006,
after medical consultation and
being told that at 35 years old he
may not see 40. This was a hard
pill to swallow. He had to do
something if he wanted to live

and live a rewarding and fulfilled *

life.

Mr Bethel opted for gastric
bypass surgery (stomach reduc-
tion) and the rest is history.

Today, he has lost more than

250lbs through the combination ~

of surgery, diet and exercise.

Many sacrifices had to be
made, such as his love of coke
soda and Bahamian food, for a
better life - a life with a future
and now a purpose.

As a member of Rotary, “giv-
ing above self” is a motto that he
adheres to.

Telling his story is his way of
“giving of self.” He hopes to
reach out to those who may be
going through extreme weight
issues.

Persons with any questions, can

Airport may

suspend flights on
Sunday evening



OFFICIALS at the Lynden Pindling International Airport
announced yesterday that they may have to suspend air traffic
late on Sunday as Hurricane Ike approaches.

In a statement issued yesterday, the Nassau Airport Develop-
ment Company (NAD) noted that the latest weather informa-
tion obtained from the MET office showed Ike entering the
southeast Bahamas with tropical storm force winds in the early:
morning on Sunday.

It is then predicted to reach hurricane strength around noon
on Sunday and progress through the Bahamas, bringing tropical
storm force winds to the New Providence area in the early morn-
ing on Monday.

NAD said its Air Traffic Services will continue to monitor the
information provided by the MET Office.

The company said that it does not foresee having to suspend
flights before late evening on Sunday, and is therefore projecting
normal operations at LPIA throughout the weekend.

NAD said yesterday’s statement is only intended to provide
information as a guideline, and that the company’s actions will
be directed on an ongoing basis by the progress of Hurricane
Ike.

It said that new information on the operational status of the
airport will be provided as it becomes available.

Bahamasair to offer extra flights



BAHAMASAIR will offer some additional flights this weekend
to clear the backlog of passengers.

Due to the delays and cancellations caused by Tropical Storm
Hanna earlier this week, the national flag carrier has made some
changes to its flight schedule for today and tomorrow.

Today, all flights will operate as scheduled, with Bahamasair
providing one extra service to Crooked Island and one ‘to Provo,
Turks and Caicos.

“These extra sections (flights) are intended to clear any backlog

of passengers who were unable to return to Nassau on their sched-
uled flights as a result of Tropical Storm Hanna,” Bahamasair said
yesterday in a press statement,
The additional séivice from Nassau to Crooked Island will depart
at 6.30am. The retumn flight v ‘willbe at 8am.
The extra flight to Provo will depart from Nassau at 9.15am, and
- depart from Provo and return to Nassau at 11.30am.

Evangelicals flock to McCain-Palin

JOHN McCain is, in some ways, an acci-
dental candidate.

Talk to delegates at ‘the Republican
National Convention this week, and many"
will admit that McCain was not their first
choice for president. é

Some will even concede that he was not
their second or even third choice.

Rudy Giuliani, Mitt Romney and Fred
Thompson all outpolled him in the months
leading up to the primaries.

Then in January, Mike Huckabee scored
a stunning victory in the Iowa caucuses
with the support of evangelical Christians.

Going back to the Reagan revolution
and, before it, the Roe decision, Christian
conservatives have filled the grassroots*
ranks of the Republican Party. In the 2004
presidential election, the Pew Research
Centre found they were the largest single
demographic group among voters for
George W. Bush, constituting 35 per cent
of his total.

In 2004, white evangelicals supported
President Bush over John Kerry 69 to 26
per cent, a slight increase over Bush’s large
’ margins over Al Gore in 2000, and enough
to help deliver GOP majorities in crucial
battleground states like Iowa and Ohio.

Until recently, polls had been showing
McCain lagging behind Bush’s levels of
support among Christian conservatives in
both 2004 and 2000.

But an August Pew survey showed
’ McCain had solidified his lead over Barack
Obama among this group by 68 to 24 per
cent.

That was before last tnonth’s Saddle-
back Civil Forum on the Presidency with
Pastor Rick Warren, where McCain for
the first time seriously engaged evangelical
voters. And it ‘was before he galvanized
their support by selecting Sarah Palin as his
running mate.

. One bellwether was James Dobson, pres-
ident of Focus on the Family. ‘

The influential evangelical leader said
in February that he could not. vote for
McCain as a matter of conscience.

After McCain’s selection of Palin last
week, Dobson told talk radio host Dennis
Prager, “I would pull that lever.”

McCain may be the presidential nomi-

NOTICE

nee, but the buzz this week was about °

Palin. Far from dampening enthusiasm for
the Alaska governor, news that her 17-
year-old daughter was pregnant — and the
perception that the media were piling on
her family — only seemed to heighten her
popularity.

David Barton, a former vice chairman
of the Republican ‘Party of Texas and

leader of a national evangelical organiza- “
tion, says, “When the announcement was |

made, my e-mail immediately lit up with
adjectives I haven’t seen in a long time
among evangelicals, Christians and con-

servatives.” He says the level of enthusiasm .

is greater thanin 2004.

Texas Lt. Gov. David Dewhurst provid-
‘ed another anecdotal tale. At a breakfast
with Texas delegates Monday morning, he
spoke about a discussion he had with an
evangelical pastor who was on his flight to
St. Paul. The pastor predicted 3 million to
5 million more Christian conservative vot-
ers would turn out for McCain because of
Palin.

In the end, however, it was McCain’s
show in St. Paul.

With the crescendo building all week
from Thompson to Huckabee to Giuliani to
Palin; the question remained: Could
McCain seal the deal — not only with
Christian conservatives, but also. with a
larger audience of Republican and inde-
pendent voters?

The old warrior laid out a plan Thursday
night to reform his own party, battle Wash-
ington corruption and keep. the nation
secure. It wasn’t a traditional partisan cam-
paign speech.

McCain was least convincing rambling
through political talking points. He was
inspiring when making his pledge for
reform, retelling his American elegy and
especially when i issuing his allegorical call to
arms.

One year ago, McCain’s campaign was
close to being vanquished.

With two months to go until the general

election, he has a fighting chance.

The Devil’s
minions
are at work
in Bahamas

EDITOR, The Tribune.

' ONE of the biggest reasons
why The Bahamas seems to
be in an economic and spiri-
tual morass, in my humble
submission, is due to the fact
that over the past two decades
a genre of so-called “men and

women of the cloth” have

emerged in this nation with a

‘vengeance. I make no, apolo-

gies for this bold and. funda-
mental position.

From the days of recon-
struction back in the great
USA, shortly after the fratri-
cidal Civil War, most Ameri-
can blacks from the Southern
States went directly into the
church and the pulpit.

This was seen as the fastest
avenué by which a poor, une-
ducated black man or woman
could advance socially and
economically. In fact, this
trend was so strong that we
witnessed the phenomenon of
the rise (and fall) of outlandish
“Father Divine”, “Daddy
Grace” and, of course, the
Honourable Elijah

Mohammed (The Messenger ,

of Allah). Here in our own
country, the law, the church
and politics have developed
into virtual “growth” indus-
tties. Back in the 1950’s when
few black Bahamians could
read or write, menial labour,

subsistence farming, fishing —

and the hospitality industry
were the normal outlet for the
creative energies of a majority
— black and conchy joe.
With the advent of democ-
racy on the micro level dur-
ing the 1960’s the law and the
church became popular roads
for those to travel who had
economic and social ambi-
tions.
. We saw the development of
pulpiteers like the late. H W
Brown; Reverend Leroy Cole-
brooke; Dr Charles Saunders,
et al. On the political front
people like Lynden Oscar Pin-
dling; Cecil Wallace- Whitfield;
Arthur Foulkes}; Ortland H
Bodie Sr; Randol Fawkes and
Clarence Bain were making
their respective marks.
Economically, few black
Bahamians were prepared or
able to challenge the suprema-

cy of the white Bahamian and
his foreign allies. It was only
during the early 1980’s that
the embryonic black and
conchy joe Bahamian business
person started to come into
the sunshine.

Today, in this blessed year
of Our Lord and Saviour two
thousand and eight, the pul-
pit has taken,over as the
fastest route to fortune and
fame. As a result, everyone —

‘his sister and his brother —

are apostles, bishops, pastors,

reverend doctors, revelators :.

and, of course, evangelists

(witha word from God, no’
less). The problem, I submit, is:

that far too many of these
individuals would not know
Jehovah if He was to be seat-
ed right up in their faces. In
fact, too many of them have
absolutely no knowledge of
Who God is and really could
care less.

So long as they minister and
lord over a “big” church, drive
the best vehicles and are able
to seduce and beguile nubile
young girls, doe-eyed boys,
low down and dirty, rusty men
and, of course, the starry-eyed
female worshippers.

Once “recognised” as a man
or woman of the cloth, the sky
then becomes the limit for
some of them in terms of their
abilities to raise funds, bam-
boozle the corporate world
and to link ‘up, bogusly, with
the politicians of the day. The
innocents are caught up in the
middle and we end up getting
just what Daffy Duck got.

They raise funds for this
cause and this event with no
measurable achievement; no
accountability and a stark
reluctance to share or divide
the income. Another favourite
vehicle whichis utilised by
many clergy is to find a
“cause” be it crime, societal
unrest or some sort of outcry
about sexual immorality and
run with it. People like Jesse
Jackson and the Reverend Al
Sharpton have finessed this

ability to the max. In the USA

Jackson and his Rainbow
Alliance were able to bam-
boozle and intimidate large
companies because they did

not meet racial quotas or did

no invest enough in black
areas. It is reputed that sey-
eral of his sons now own and
operate the largest beer dis-
tributorship in Chicago.

Al Sharpton with his
National Action Committee
has done the same then and
each year corporations
“donate” tens of millions of
dollars to his “causes”, or are
subjected to his tirades and
threatened boycotts. It would
be interesting to know how
many of these “donations”

ever reach the “cause or ben:
efit individuals who are not
connected to the man or
woman of God.

The same problem exists
here in The Bahamas. Crime
is now the whipping boy or
girl of society and its seems
that many are looking for a |
way to raise some easy money
to ‘fight’ crime. Mind you,
crime is supposed to be within
the purview ofthe police and
the elected government of the -
day. Yet, we see the specta-
cle of crime fighting organi-
zations and committees risin

up out of the societal ashes
like so many phoenix. They
are to be seen receiving dona-
tions and sponsoring special
community events but, at the —
end of the day, what has real-
ly been accomplished of a last-
ing value? You be the judge!

Yes, there are layers o
duplicity which conceals th
lack of accountability and/or
responsibilities. You will hear
about a board of directors
which, coincidentally I am
sure, is comprised of political
and social allies of the chair-
man or executive directors of
the so-called crime commit-
tee. The sad thing about this is
some of them actually get
away with fooling many
Bahamians into believing that °
they are about the business of
The Master and that they
actually are concerned with
the well-being and welfare of
the small man and woman.

’ The Devil, I submit, is still a

liar and his minions are at
work-in The Bahamas.

They love to sit up at the
headtable and to be publicly
recognised as a good man or
woman all the while they are
just like their father Diablo:
If 50 per cent of these. corpo-
rate donations to “crime fight-
ing groups” were to be donat-
ed directly to social pro-
grammes, without the middle
man or woman, much more
would and could be achieved.
Until then, however, ‘e char-
latans, tin gods and bogus
community transformers will
continue to prey on gullible
individuals and corporate cit-
izens who merely wish to salve
their collective consciousness.

Many of them, for political
reasons and biasness, will lam-
baste those whom they
oppose. Once the party they
would have supported is. in

power, some of them are

appointed to all sorts of gov-
ernment boards and corpora-
tions.at inflated and often
unknown stipends and hono-
rariums. They will speak, pub-
licly, on the radio and in the
newspapers on issues which
have absolutely nothing to do
with spiritual salvation.

To God then, Who will pull
down the walls of a false Jeri-
cho, in all things, be the glory.

THE youth arm of the Free

examinations but they also did in ©

the Bahamas Junior Certificate
(BJC) examinations.

“More than 60 per cent of the
grades awarded for the BGCSE
examinations were between "A"
and "D", according to informa-
tion released by the Ministry of
Education.on Wednesday.

This year there were 6,294
BGCSE candidates and 7,577
candidates for the BJC examina-
tions.The Torchbearers said thou-
‘sands of candidates who took the’
‘Bahamas Junior Certificate (BJC)
examinations improved this year’s
results and also improved the
overall national average. .

The Ministry of Education’s
Technical Cadet Corps Pro-
gramme held its induction cere-

mony, welcoming 105 students

from both the public and private
schools to the programme.

In attendance and bringing the
keynote address was the Minis-
ter of Education Carl Bethel, who
expressed that he felt inspired by
the young inductees whom he
applauded for making the bold
decision to enter the TCCP.

The minister praised the pro-
gramme, which was established
in September of 1990, and
through its mission seeks to:
“provide opportunities for stu-
dents interested in technology to
acquire skills necessary for suc-
cess in a technologically advanc-
ing society, and to assist in nation-
al development.”

He welcomed the programme’s
partnership with stakeholders
such as: the Water and Sewerage
Corporation; the Bahamas

Broadcasting Corporation; the:

Bahamas Electrical Corporation;
and the Bahamas Telecommuni-
cations Corporation.

Mr Bethel urged the students
to have open minds, as this will
help them to grow personally, and
enrich their education. -

He told the students they had

made the right choice, as those -

who enter the programme
become more disciplined in their
approach to studying, mature
more rapidly in their thinking,
and are generally better students.



Orla mete) itis

This he attributed to the varied
opportunities provided to young
people to discover new interests,
learn.new technical skills, rein-
force knowledge gained in class-
rooms, and further their educa-
tion after the programme. “The
Ministry of Education shares with
the TCCP, the belief that all stu-
dents have abilities.

A LACK of proper ventilation
at the General Post Office is forc-
ing some sections to close three
hours early and slowing down the
delivery of mail by about two
days. :

Employees of the letter sort-
ing, parcel post and Customs sec-
tions of the General Post Office
on East Hill Street are reportedly
working half-day shifts, leaving

~ work hours before knock-off time

due to "unbearable" conditions.

The air-conditioning unit for
the ground floor area is not func-
tioning and has been broken for
weeks. According.to Postmaster
General Godfrey Clark a private
company was contracted by the
Ministry of Works to install the
unit however the problem is still
not fixed.

"The Ministry of Works has
contracted a (private) company
who is installing some air condi-
tioning units in the parcel post

‘and letter processing area. The

contractors are in and .out
attempting to correct the prob-
lem,” he said. aes

Until then, employees in those
sections have been allowed to

‘ leave work early to escape the sti-

fling heat.

"T wish I could say exactly
(when the a/c will be installed) I
hope it can be done today. . .
because they (employees) are
leaving early around 2.30 or 3pm




instead of five. I know it's not the
most ideal situation, working in
an area in an enclosed building
with no air conditioning but we

‘are working as hard as we can to

get the problem solved".

Mr Clark admitted that the
faulty air-conditioning unit is hin-
dering mail processing but did not
specify how much impact the
shorter workdays will have on the
country's postal service.

"Obviously there will be some
slowing of the process," he said.

President of the Bahamas Pub-
lic Service Union John Pinder
placed the blame for the slow
repairs on the private company
which the job was out-sourced to.

He said his members are not
advocating for industrial action,
but would like to see the matter
resolved soon.

"They were awaiting some part
to connect some compressors, that
has been at least four weeks.
What happens is, any time a gov-
ernment agency has a problem
with the air conditioning system
and the a/c malfunctions and they
take a long time to get it correct-
ed, we have kind of a verbal
agreement, whereas they'll allow
those persons to work shifts so
some will work in the morning,
or some will work in the evening
because once the heat becomes
unbearable they'll have to leave.
The post office workers have
decided rather than having a split
shift, to-allow everybody to work
half-days and then go," said Mr
Pinder. - :

ESA spacecraft
completes the
flyby of Steins
asteroid }



â„¢ DARMSTADT, Germany

The Rosetta deep space probe
successfully passed close to an
asteroid 250 million miles from
Earth, the European Space
Agency said Friday night.

In a mission that may bring
man closer to solving the mys-
tery of the solar system’s birth,
the craft completed its flyby of
the Steins asteroid, also known
as Asteroid 2867 — now in the
asteroid belt between the orbits
of Mars and Jupiteg — at
around 3:15 p.m. EDT.

As planned, the spacecraft’s
signal was lost for about 90 min-
utes as engineers turned it away
from the sun and because the
craft was moving too fast for its
antennas to transmit.

The resumption of the craft’s
signal transmission was greet-
ed with cheers from ESA engi-
neers and technicians.

“We're extremely happy that
it worked,” mission manager
Gerhard Schwehm said, sipping
a glass of champagne after the
announcement from the control
room. “It’s a big relief. People
can relax a bit now and every-
thing seems fine.”

Schwehm said the agency
would work to get images and
other data collected by the
probe processed as soon as pos-
sible. He said the first images
should be released to the public
Saturday.

“The operation went very
well,” Paolo Ferri, the head of
the solar and planetary missions
division and Rosetta flight oper-
ations director, said in a short
speech after the announcement.

“The spacecraft is in exactly
the condition we expected,
which is good. All indications
are that everything was super
successful.”

Bahamians urged to get
ready for Hurricane Ike

FROM page one

seriously and we ask them not to wait until
Sunday or Monday to ook for items of
food or building materials, but to do so
now and as a matter of urgency.”

As Tropical Storm Hanna passed out of
the northern Bahamas, flooding Sandbank
and Treasure Cay in Abaco on Thursday
night, Hurricane Ike edged closer to the
archipelago and a watch was issued for the
southeastern Bahamas.

Ike was 460 miles east-northeast of
Mayaguana and Turks and Caicos at lati-
tude.22.9 degrees north and longitude 64.1
degrees west yesterday evening. |

The category three storm, with winds of
around 115mph, was moving west-south-
west at 1Smph yesterday, and expected to
continue on this course before it turns back
to the west on Sunday, and hitting
Mayaguana, Inagua, Acklins, Crooked
Island and Rum Cay.



‘Although the storm was a catastrophic
category three yesterday, Arthur Rolle,
director of the Bahamas Department of
Meteorology, said Ike is expected to
strengthen to category four when it takes a

turn through the central Bahamas on Tues-

day.
He said: “Hurricane Ike ig a very dan-
gerous storm. Just stretch your imagina-

_ tion to what an average of 140mph winds

can do.

“It would make sense for people to start
now, to complete whatever preparations
they need to do.”

The prime minister recalled the devas-
tation caused by category two hurricanes
Frances and Jeanne in 2004, and Hurricane

Andrew which battered North Eleuthera —

in 1992 with 155 mph winds and_-.23-foot
sea surges. :

The Department of Meteorology will
issue an advisory at 2pm today, expected to
be the first hurricane watch for the south-
east Bahamas.

Felipé Major/Tribune staff

When a watch is issued residents can
expect hurricane conditions, and winds
above 75mph within 36 hours.

Mr Ingraham said government agencies
are prepared for emergency operations,
drains throughout New Providence have
been upgraded, and local governments
throughout the islands have co-operated.

. Residents throughout the Bahamas are
urged to watch tomorrow’s update live on

ZNS and listen to regular updates on ZNS.

1540.

Commander Stephen Russell, director of
NEMA, said: “I can assure you at NEMA
we are constantly on watch, and will remain
to be activated while this hurricane is on
watch.

“We will continue to monitor Hurricane
Ike as it comes through and until it exits the
Bahamas sometime next week.” ,

To track the storm online log on to the

United States National Hurricane Centre

Emergency water supplies sent out

FROM page one

ed by the Red Cross, along with
Defence Force units to both
islands.

“A flight did go out this
morning and we were able to
get 20 cases of water on that
flight for Mayaguana, along
with some supply kits from the
Red Cross. A unit of Defence
Force marines went down to
assist them. Similarly, the same
thing was done with San Sal-
vador. Water and some basic
supplies were sent down there

to help prepare them for the’

approach of the next storm,”
interim director of NEMA
Commander Stephen Russell
told The Tribune.

NEMA has been able to
make contact with island
administrators who highlighted
their immediate needs. Weath-
er permitting, another flight
today or Saturday may be

arranged to send more supplies,
Commander Russell said.

Mayaguana ran low on water
because of an overdue visit
from the mailboat, chief coun-
cillor for the island Earnel
Brown said.

“We haven’t had a mailboat

‘service in quite a while so that

really has contributed to the
problem but we are getting by.

We didn’t have a scheduled stop ©

prior to the storm and since
then because of the weather the
mailboat hasn’t been able to
sail.”

He added that the mailboat is
scheduled to make weekly stops
at the island but can sometimes
take up to three weeks to bring

‘much-needed supplies.

Mr Brown said he is worried
about how long supplies will last
after Hurricane Ike, a strong
category four storm, rips
through the island.

“That really is a major con-

cern because if we have (heavy)

flooding and we lose electrical
power, we will be in a situation
that could be uncomfortable.”
_ According to Mr Brown, oth-
er than a two-day power out-
ige, Mayaguana recorded no
major damage from the storm.

Officer-in-charge of San Sal-
vador and Rum Cay Inspector
Derrick Ferguson said while the
islands under his watch fared as
Hanna churned through the
country necessities like fuel may
run low as they await supplies
from the mailboat.

“We’re doing just fine. We
have no major damage to build-
ings or flooding or loss of prop-
erty (to report) we only experi-
enced strong winds and swelling
of the ocean near the coastal

lines which was very minimal.”

He said residents were not at
a “point of desperation” but
needed extra supplies to meet
the high demand for water and
other basics.

As Ike approaches, Inspec-

’ tor Ferguson believes San Sal-

vador and Rum Cay are ready.

_ “The residents here in San
Salavador, first of all they’re no
strangers to storms, due to,our
location. Nevertheless, I believe
that they are not taking any-
thing lightly as it relates to Ike.

_ We’re all familiar to the damage

that storms can do. They still
have their various properties
battened up...and we at the
police department intend to

intensify our patrols and to’

make sure we are in. constant
communication with the local
community.”

The three shelters on San Sal-
vador and one shelter on Rum
Cay will be remain open to
accommodate persons needing
shelter from Ike. \

Acklins, Crooked Island and
Inagua also received basic sup-
plies from NEMA in the wake
of Tropical Storm Hanna.

Rubie Nottage tenure set to end

course”.
When asked yesterday for

any additional comment on the ~

matter, the prime minister
refused.

Likewise, an invitation was
extended to Chief Justice Sir
Burton Hall, who refused to
comment directly, stating only
that he could not speak on the
matter “at this time”.

Calls to Justice Nottage and
the president of the Bar Asso-
ciation Wayne Munroe were

not returned up to press time
last night .

Appointed in April, Justice
Nottage will turn 65 - the age
justices are constitutionally
required to retire - in October.

According to the Constitu-'

tion, a justice’s term can be
extended until his or her 67th
birthday by the governor gen-
eral, if the prime minister makes
such a recommendation after
consultation with the leader of
the opposition.

Additionally, an extension
can also be granted allowing
time for the conclusion of all

live cases before a justice who is
due for retirement.

The wife of former PLP Cab-
inet minister and MP Kendal
Nottage, Justice Nottage’s
appointment by the Judicial and
Legal Services Commission was
met with both criticism and sup-
port from a cross-section of the
country.

Mrs Rubie Nottage was men-
tioned in the 1984 Commission
of Inquiry into drug trafficking
in the Bahamas and almost 20
years ago she was indicted in
the US on drug money-laun-
dering charges. However, US

Wife accused of throwing ‘corrosive’ solvent

FROM page one

The accused is a nail techni-
cian by profession, and it is
alleged that she threw the ace-
tone — a solvent used to remove
artificial nails and nail polish —
in her husband’s face and on his
back during a domestic dispute.

Sgt Sean Thurston said the
prosecution had no objection

to bail.

He did, however, note the
seriousness of the alleged
offence, saying it carried a max-
imum penalty of 20 years in
prison.

According to the prosecutor,
the accused and victim live
together and have children.

He also told the court that
the victim had been released
from hospital, but medical

reports indicated that he would
need continuous medical treat-
ment.

Noting that the prosecution
did not object to bail, Magis-
trate Gomez set bail in the sum
of $10,000 with one surety.

The case was adjourned to
September 24 and transferred
to Court 10, Nassau Street.

!

authorities have never acted on
the indictment.

While some believed that she
should not have been appointed
until a court indictment against
her in the United States from
the 1980s had been cleared up,
others felt she was eminently
qualified for the position.

Justice Nottage has 38 years
of legal experience behind her,
having served as general coun-
sel to the Grand Bahama Port
Authority and charicellor and
legal adviser to the Anglican
Diocese of the Bahamas and
the Turks and Caicos.

Archer shot

FROM page one

A young man was shot in
Major Road, Yellow Elder, at
around 11pm on Thursday,
when a man in a black hooded
jacket holding a handgun
approached with another man
and fired shots at a 17-year-old
boy, hitting him in the left leg.
He is in stable condition in hos-
pital.

We are ready for

says Ingraham

FROM page one

sau, is being completed today.

Government departments also used yesterday and today to
check generators supplying power to medical clinics are opera-
tional, food and water supplies are adequate and the Department
of Public Works completes all essential jobs.

Mr Ingraham said: “Hurricane Ike is a serious storm and must be
taken very seriously i in the Bahamas.

“The various agencies of the Government are prepared to go into
operation.

“The department of public health, ministry of education, and pub-

‘lic works now has the opportunity to complete things before the

storm hits.

“We are also very pleased with the co-operation and assistance
of local government authorities in the Family Islands.”

A total of 130 shelters will open throughout the Family Islands
in case of emergency, and 26 shelters will open for vulnerable res-

-idents of New Providence.

The largest shelter in Nassau is the Church of God in Joe Far-
rington Road with a capacity to hold over 400 people.

Residents of low-lying areas prone to flooding such as Pinewood
Gardens, Bain Town and parts of the inner-city are encouraged to
seek shelter, as well as people whose houses are unlikely to with-
stand the force of category four hurricane winds.

A special shelter will also open in Nassau to accommodate up to
50 people with physical disabilities at the Bahamas Association for
the Physically Disabled in Dolphin Drive.

Officers from the Royal Bahamas Defence Force and the Red
Cross will manage the shelters, and RBDF officers will be deployed
wherever needed.

RBDF Commander Clifford Scavella said: “We want to ensure
the Bahamian people that their families will be secured and the
RBDF will offer and do whatever is necessary to ensure that all
Bahamians have comfort as we assist the National Emergency

Management Agency (NEMA) in their undertakings.”

As Hurricane Ike headed for the south-eastern Bahamas yes-
terday, Mr Ingraham warned: “Residents of the southern Bahamas,
Inagua, Mayaguana, Rum Cay and Acklins should take seriously
the warnings issued by the Department of Meteorology and com-
plete their preparations forthwith.

“Other areas of the Bahamas should be on alert for other alerts
issued by the department to carry out their preparations today.”

Severe floods
hit low-lying
communities:

FROM page one

Point, blamed the ineffective drainage system in Seco Town — sit-
uated west of Pinder’s Point — as the reason for the flooding ‘in the
area.

“The flap that drains the water out was broken and drains in the
area are blocked and we have a lot of standing water that has set-
tled in the street,” he said during an official island update at the
Administrator’s Office in Freeport.

Various members of the Grand Bahama Disaster Consultative

_ Committee were present.

Rufus Johnson, administrator for West Grand Bahama, report-
ed that'sea water from the bayside came across Bayshore Road.

“We had about eight to 10 foot seas on the southern side of
Bayshore Road, but the water on the road had cleared up in the
afternoon,” he said.

There was no flooding at Fishing Hole Road, he said.

Mr Johnson reported that only 14 persons sought shelter at the
Eight Mile Rock High School gymnasium.

Island administrator Alexander Williams reported that Hanna

did not cause any major damage on the island and no injurics
were reported as a result of the storm.
_ “lam able to report that there was nothing out of the ordinary,
only some localised flooding in areas but nothing to displace any-
one, and from all indications the roads are still passable,” he told
The Tribune.

In addition to the flooding, strong winds were responsible for
some downed powerlines and trees in Freeport, and East Grand
Bahama.

Freeport meteorologist Donna Duncombe reported that winds
reached a high of 47 knots or 55 mph on Grand Bahama.

Weather officials also reported that 2.3 inches of rainfall was
recorded at Grand Bahama International Airport.

Although Hanna had left the Bahamas around noon, Ms Dun-
combe said Grand Bahama remained under tropical storm warning
until 3pm when it would be discontinued during the next advisory
from the Bahamas Meteorology Department.

In Freeport, wind brought down a few tree branches and there
was minor flooding in some streets.

Residents of Queen’s Cove reported no major flooding in that
area, which is vulnerable to flooding from the north shore during
hurricanes. Only two shelters were opened in Freeport. There
were reports that seven persons turned up at the Special Needs shel-
ter at Christ the King Church Hall in Freeport.

Lillian Quant-Forbes, assistant director of social services in
Freeport, said the Maurice Moore Primary School shelter, desig-
nated for residents of East End, did not receive any persons up until
1.30am on Friday and was closed.

Flooding was also reported in the east, where East End residents
experienced more intense conditions as Hanna passed east of them
around 2am on Friday.

Lawrence Laing, local government chief councillor for the area,
reported very strong winds and rough seas.

Minister of Housing Kenneth Russell, MP for High Rock, also
reported that there were downed powerlines near the graveyard i in
East End, as well as on Sweeting’s Cay.

He noted that, despite minor flooding of the road between Pel-
ican Point and McCLean’ s Town, everything was fine.

Government offices opened for normal business, but public
and private schools remained closed on Friday. The Grand Bahama
airport also remained closed.

Mr Williams said Grand Bahama residents should continue to

pay close attention to weather reports on Hurricane Ike.

“We are now going to have to gear up and bracing ourselves for
that system,” he said.

Meteorologist Duncombe said that conditions will be good for
the weekend and advised residents to prepare for Ike, “Although
the system is 1,000 miles away, it doesn’t mean that we should
not be concerned,” she said. ~

As forecast models predict that Ike may pass over southern
Andros. Ms Duncombe said Grand Bahama can expect to receive
some tropical storm conditions by late Monday evening and Tues-
day.

o-time champ Serena
back in US Open final

@ By HOWARD FENDRICH
AP Tennis Writer

NEW YORK (AP) — Sere-
na Williams wound up and
smacked a shot directly at
Dinara Safina early in the sec-
ond set of their U.S. Open semi-
final.

The ball hit Safina near her
shoulder, ending the point, and
she quickly turned her back to
the net, muttering as she walked
away, ignoring Williams’
attempts to apologize.

Not much later Friday,
Williams tried again to say “Sor-
ry,” except this time both play-
ers were standing at the net
after the American wrapped up
a 6-3, 6-2 victory. Now Williams
can take aim at a third champi-
onship at Flushing Meadows

and ninth Grand Slam title ©

overall.

Hard to believe her very first
major title came in 1999 at the
U.S; Open.

“I just am excited to obvi-
ously still be here,” Williams
said, “and, 10 years later, still
putting up a major fight.”

It’s her first U.S. Open final
since 2002, when she beat older
sister Venus. This time, they
met in the quarterfinals, and
Venus offered advice about fac-
ing Safina, then sat in the stands
Friday, cheering. The siblings’
parents, who also serve as their
coaches, were there, too, after
skipping the all-Williams match.

“J was thinking to myself,
’°OK, if you’re going to beat
your sister, you have to go all
the way,”’ said their mother,
Oracene Price.

Next up for Williams: Jelena
Jankovic. ;

“Overall, she’s, I think, the

strongest player on the tour,.

together with her sister,” said
the second-seeded Jankovic.
“Nobody has the power that
they*have. We cannot com-
pare.” Bes = ss

Jankovic eliminated Olympic
gold medalist Elena Dementie-
va 6-4, 6-4. It will be Williams’
12th Grand Slam final, and
Jankovic’s first, and in addition
to the silver trophy at stake, the
winner will rise to.No. 1 in the
rankings next week.

The final is scheduled for Sat-
urday night, but forecasts calling
for rain much of the day
prompted tournament organiz-
ers to announce contingency
plans that could include post-
poning the match until Sunday.

“T’m ready to play tomorrow. '

Hopefully we can,” Williams
said. “If not, I’ll be ready for
Sunday, Monday, Tuesday —
doesn’t matter.”

She got off to a shaky start
against Safina, the younger sis-
ter of 2000 U.S. Open men’s
champion Marat Safin. Broken
in her first service game,
Williams fell behind 2-0, but she
won seven of the next eight
games, eventually doing a much
better job than Safina of dealing
with wind that gusted at over
20 mph.

Safina wound up with 41
unforced errors, and she repeat-
edly rolled her eyes or shook
her head or shouted at herself in
English or Russian, much the
way her brother does. A few
points after being pelted by the
ball, Safina hit her fifth double-
fault of the match and yelled,
“J hate the wind!” Two. points
after that, Safina pushed a back-
hand long and Williams broke
to lead 2-1 in the second set.

“T was behaving like a really
spoiled girl,” Safina said.

The whipping air played hav-
oc with serve tosses — the
women combined for 11 dou-
ble-faults — and all manner of
other strokes. The US. flag
above the video board at one

.end of Arthur Ashe Stadium
rippled so loudly that Safina

turned to glare at it before one ©

serve.

“T thought, OK, if it’s so
windy, then I’m not going to go
for sO many winners,” said
Williams, who didn’t produce
her first winning forehand until
the match was 30 minutes old.

Still, she was gritting her
teeth, pumping her fists and hol-
lering, showing the will to win
her mother described as
“unending.”

“Everything,” Price said, “is
supposed to be hers.”

Down 2-1, Williams broke
Safina, but needed three break
points in that game to do it. On
the second, Safina tried a drop
shot that Williams charged, hit-
ting a ball toward her foe’s face.
Safina ducked and the ball went
long. Eventually, a missed fore-
hand by Safina made it 2-2

_ there.

Williams broke to a 5-3 lead
when Safina put a forehand into
the net, and a similar miscue
ended the set in the next game.

Safina‘ didn’t go quietly,

breaking at love to tie the sec-.

ond at 1-all. It was in the next
game; though, that Safina could-
n’t get out of the way after try-
ing another drop shot that
Williams sent back at her body.

Safina said that upset her, but

_she alsq acknowledged, “It’s all

in the rules. I can only be angry
with myself for hitting a bad
drop shot.”

When they spoke after the
match, Williams said: “I didn’t
mean it, OK?”

“T was, you know, nearly
mortified that I hit her,”
Williams said later.

Jankovic, meanwhile, lost
eight of the first nine points and
fell behind 2-0 and 4-2. But as
Dementieva became more ten-
tative and more erratic,
Jankovic reeled off five consec-
utive games to claim the first
set and a 1-0 edge in the sec-

ond.

Jankovic also trailed by. a
break at 3-2 in the second set,
before coming back again. She
got plenty of help — 42 of the
66 points Jankovic won came
from unforced errors by the
fifth-seeded Dementieva.

Jankovic entered the match
with an 0-4 record in major
semifinals, including losses at
this year’s Australian Open and
French Open. But she kept
tracking down balls, running
along the baseline and stretch-
ing her racket, extending points
until Dementieva missed.

- Several times, Jankovic

wound up doing the splits at the -

end of a point. She sometimes
would bend over to catch her
breath between points, or stop
to chat with spectators. When
she got to set point in the first
with Dementieva serving,
Jankovic drew a time violation
warning from chair umpire

-Lynn Welch for pausing to wipe

away sweat with a towel.’
The turning point might have

‘come a little earlier, with

Dementieva up 4-2 and love-30
on Jankovic’s serve. Two more
points, and Dementieva would
have served for the opening set.

Instead, this is how things
went: Dementieva missed three
service returns, and Jankovic’s
backhand winner ended a 21-
stroke point and the game.
Dementieva began the next
game by double-faulting, and
eventually was broken when‘a
67 mph serve put her on the
defensive.

“Mentally, I feel I’m a lot
stronger, because I really
believe in myself. I really want
to do this, and it’s about time
for me to make that step for-
ward to break that barrier,”
Jankovic said. “I want to win a
Grand Slam, and this is why I
came here.”

That’s why Williams came,
too, of course.

“She has a lot of pressure to
win her first Grand Slam,”
Williams said, “and I’m just
enjoying every moment.”

‘Choo Choo’ Mackey and Major
‘Pain’ to headline First Class card

@ By BRENT STUBBS
Senior Sports Reporter
bstubbs@tribunemedia.net

WHILE 'the Bahamian public gets
ready for Hurricane Ike, First Class
Promotions is preparing to host a. dou-
ble whammy on its next professional
boxing show.

On Saturday, September 20 at the
Kendal Isaacs Gymnasium, First Class
Promotions have, announced that
Meacher ‘Pain’ Major and Jermaine

‘Choo Coo’ Mackey, the, country’s top:

two pugilists, will headline the card
being dubbed: “No Stopping Us
Now.”

For Major, who will be featured in
the 10-round main event, his bout will
be:an eliminator-for his shot at the
British Commonwealth lightweight
title.

Mackey, on the other hand; will be -

in the eight-round co-main event in
the aftermath of claiming the British
Commonwealth title in his last bout.

The 26-year-old Major, who cur-
rently have a 15-3 win-loss record, said
he’s been inspired by the performance
of Mackey and intend to make good
on his bid to join him as a Common-
wealth champion.

“I’m grateful for the opportunity
and I want to thank the Lord almighty
and First Class Promotions for get-
ting the fight for us so that we can
move to the next level,” Major stated.

After pulling off an eight round
decision over Luis Bolano in his last
fight on May 25, Major said he’s been
training extensively. But he noted that
he got caught in the rain a couple
mornings this week.

“I’m just staying focussed and keep-
ing my eyes on the prize. I’m not try-
ing to look back on the previous fights
that I had. I just try to learn from
those fights and improve on the mis-
takes that I made,” he stated.

Known for his quick and furious
action in the ring, Major said he is
going to promise the Bahamian public
that it will be a show that they will
not want to miss.

“This is to get me to the Common-
wealth fight, so I’m not taking ‘this
fight lightly,” he insisted. “I’m going
out there real focussed and hopefully
at the end I will be victorious.

“If I see where I can stop him and
take him out, then that’s what it’s

. going to be. I don’t know much about
him. But I know his trainer and all of
his fighters are real smart and good
defenders. So I just have to go out
there and pick him apart.”

Once he’s is successful against the
Dominican, Major said he intend to
travel to Florida to get the necessary
sparring sessions that he will need to
prepare him for the British title fight.

“After watching Jermaine fight for
his title, | saw how tough his oppo-
nent was,” Major said. “I don’t want to
put myself in that predicament.

“It was a good fight and I really
want to congratulate him. It just give
me the desire to go out there and try
to win the British Commonwealth title

in the first round...

As the World Boxing Association’s
FedeCaribe and Bahamas lightweight
championMajor said he;would like to
add the British title to his resume.

“This is another stepping stone for

me to get another title,” he pointed
out. “After the Commonwealth title,
hopefully I can get a chance to fight
for one of those world titles or conti-
nental titles in the US that can prepare
me for a world title shot.”

Despite getting caught in the rain,
Major said it has hampered his train-
ing because he have his own equip-
ment at home and he car still work-
out.

He thanked his coaches Gregory
Storr, Ray Minus Jr and Delvin ‘Blue’
Scott for getting him ready.

Coming off his successful bid to win
the British title fight over African
Michael Gbenga in a grueling 12-
round encounter on July 19, Mackey
said he’s stayed in the gym training.

“As everyone know, it was a tough
fight, but it has prepared me even fur-
ther in boxing,” he charged. “I’m
ready and eager to go out there with
that same hungriness to win.” —

Admitting that he suffered some

deficiencies. that hurt him against

Gbenga, the 28-year-old Mackey said

- he’s looking forward to improving on

what he did against his new opponent.

“The last fight I had too much
offense. I think I overworked myself
and my opponent wasn’t tired .because
I had too much offense,” stressed

_ Mackey; who is 17-3. ’

“It was a good thing and it was a
bad thing. I just hope to improve on
that. I just want to go out there and
put on a good fight.”

To the Bahamas as Hurricane Ike
looms, Major advised everyone to “get
your shutters and make sure that you
have all of your supplies. I also wish
everybody peace and hope that we
can all get together and look out for
our neighbors and live as one.’

Mackey, likewise, stated: “I’ve been
getting the calls to batten up houses,
so it’s a long waiting list. We tend to
wait too late. If we do it early, we will
be much more ready for the hurri-
canes when they come.”

As for the impending inclement
weather, Mackey said rain or not, he
will be training.

is renew Vows



MOUNT Tabor Full
Gospel Baptist Church was
transformed into a “Garden
of Eden” on the occasion of
the renewal of wedding vows
by Bishop Neil C Ellis and
his wife of 25 years, Patrice
Ellis, on September 3.

The church was filled with
family, friends and well-wish-
ers for the service, which was
presided over by Reverend
Dr Charles W Saunders.

The charge was given by
Anglican Archbishop Drexel
Gomez. :

Following the service, a
reception was held on the

_ grounds of the church. Fol-
lowing the reception, a pri-
vate dinner party was held
at the Sandals Royal
Bahamian Resort, which was
the site of the reception for
the original exchange of
vows 25 years ago. \

Sharlyn Smith, a foster sis-
ter of Bishop Ellis, was a

junior bridesmaid at the first.

wedding ceremony and now
her daughter was the flower
girl at. the renewal of vows.
Mrs Smith’s daughter was
escorted by Jonathan Ellis,
son of the bride and groom.

A quote from one clergy.

person helped to sum up the

occasion. He described the. :

event as “love in silver.”

“At a time when the con-
cept of a Christian marriage
and the institution of the
family is under virtual attack,
it is not only admirable but
also helpful to the society for
Bishop Ellis to publicly re-
proclaim that he loves his
wife as Christ loved the
church and for Patrice to
publicly re-affirm her love
for her husband,” the cler-
gyman said.







THE bride,
Patrice Ellis, a
former regis-
tered nurse, ina
‘dress designed
by Yoly Munoz
Couture of Palm
Beach, radiates
the charm and
elegance which
are her trade-
marks. The full-
length white
wedding gown
is accentuated
by silver sequins
and elaborate
ruffles. A bolero
jacket with a
high collar-com-
pleted the outfit.
