DELIVERING a fiery and
at times emotional speech after
being acquitted of sexual
harassment yesterday, popular
media personality Darold
Miller told his former employ-
er, GEMS Radio, that he “is
coming for (his) money.”

Speaking to a crowd on
Arawak Cay after the acquittal
(see page 3), Mr Miller
thanked those who supported
him during the trial, saying that
the entire ordeal has made him
stronger.

“I have been vindicated, I
am free,” an emotional Miller



shouted as he stood outside his
stall, the Entertainment Shack
on Arawak Cay yesterday, an
hour after being found
not guilty of sexual
harassment.

Flanked by supporters who

cheered and spoke words of

encouragement, Mr Miller first
gave thanks to God, his father,
and especially his mother who
was his biggest supporter
throughout his trial.

“The magistrate in her bril-
liance ruled that there was
absolutely no truth to anything
that was brought against me.

PRISON Superintendent

Dr Elliston Rahming yes-
terday admitted to “signif-
icant” corruption at Her
Majesty’s Prison.

Testifying at the House
of Assembly Select Com-
mittee meeting on crime
yesterday morning, Dr
Rahming told House rep-
resentatives that the issue
of corruption is “at a wor-
risome level” at the prison.

“It’s not out of control,
but if you’ve got 40 to 50
staff members, and you’ve
got a four.to five per cent
corruption factor, that is
‘Significant in a prison envi-
ronment,” he said.

Committee member and
MP Kenyatta Gibson went
further in asking Dr Rah-
ming, “Would you be sur-
prised if it was the general
public’s perception that it
— corruption — was ram-
pant?”

Dr Rahming replied, “I
would be interested in
looking at how that con-
clusion was arrived at.”

In his analysis of the
issue, Dr Rahming indicat-
ed that three of the main
engines for corruption is
the illegal intake of cellular
telephones, weapons and
drugs into the prison facil-
ity.

Sacked hotel

workers march to
court to file writ

@ By MEGAN REYNOLDS
Tribune Staff Reporter



HOTEL workers sacked from
the Wyndham Hotel in Cable
Beach marched to court yesterday
to file a writ against their employer
for breach of contract.

Counsel and attorney Obie Fer-
guson is representing 14 to 18 of
around 60 people who lost their
jobs at the Wyndham Hotel when
two icwers closed as tourism dwin-
dled over the summer.

Mr Ferguson claims the Bahamar
Development Company Ltd and
Cable Beach Resorts Ltd let
employees go unlawfully by pay-

‘ing them.an inadequate redundan-
cy.

Room attendants employed for
25 years were given aroiind $5,000,
just a fraction of the $43,000 they
were entitled to, Mr Ferguson said.

_ "They just threw us out the door when they finished with us
. and that is wrong.
"We want the government to get involved so it doesn’ t hap-

As representing attorney, Mr Ferguson said he believes he has
a strong case.

"Irrespective of who you are, when you breach the law you go
to the court;"-he said.

"I think it is time Bahamian workers got something out of the
system and got treated properly — this was a fundamental breach ~
of contract and will be argued in the courts."

The group of workers represented by Mr Ferguson marched
from his office in Elizabeth Avenue to file their writs at the
Supreme Court.

Among them was Deborah Flowers, 51, a room attendant for
25 years who kept her full-time job when the two towers closed
last summer, but has lost out with a $5,000 pay-off this
year.

MINISTER of State for :
Finance Zhirvargo Laing is :

expected to brief the prime min-

ister today on the outcome of :
a CARICOM meeting in Bar- :
bados on the controversial Eco- :
nomic Partnership Agreement. :

CARICOM leaders met in :
Barbados on Tuesday to ham- :
mer‘ out détails’relating to the :
EPA, 4 week after the original :
signing date and daysvafter :
European Union (EU) agents }
stated that if CARICOM coun- :
tries do not sign on, preferential :
access for their products to the :

European market will be lost.
The Bahamas, Trinidad,
Jamaica, Barbados, the Domini-

can Republic, Belize, and St.
Vingent are in favour of sign- :
ing onto the deal and were said :
to be in serious talks yesterday :
to persuade reluctant regional :

leaders.

In a brief interview from Bar- ;
bados, Mr Laing said he could :
not divulge specifics of the :
meeting before he speaks with :
Prime Minister Hubert Ingra- ;
ham, who is minister of finance. :

"T'm not at liberty to give you }

an update,” he said.

President of Guyana Bharrat :
Jagdeo is said to be leading the :
charge for not signing the agree- :
ment, arguing the deal is notin :

the region's best interests.

St Lucia has reportedly said
they will not sign onto the
agreement while Grenada is ;

asking for an extension.

If the Bahamas does not sign :
onto the EPA by the current :
deadline ~ October 31 - it :
could incur serious trading :

penalties.

The EPA is a broad-based }
pact that is supposed, over the :
next decade-and-a-half, tolead :.,
to reciprocal free trade in goods :
and services between the 27-. :

member EU and the region.

The agreement was initially
slated for a July signing date :
but was post-poned several :

times in August.

It was then assigned a tenta- i

'tive September 2 signing date

which was rescheduled. A-new,-}.
date hangs on the outcome of !

yesterday's meeting.

The deal has met much resis-

tance locally.

A&E ‘took five hours to treat
Cynthia Pratt’s husband’

@ By PAUL TURNQUEST
Tribune Staff Reporter
pturnquest@tribunemedia.net

FORMER Deputy Prime Min-
ister Cynthia Pratt called on gov-
ernment to do something about
the obscenely long waiting times at
the Accident and Emergency sec-
tion of the Princess Mosearet Hos-
pital.

She said that on Tuesday it took °

' five hours for A&E to treat her

i’ husband, Joseph Pratt, who was °

not admitted to the private med-
ical ward until 10pm.

Mrs Pratt said her husband
waited in the A&E section without
being offered anything to eat, and
for the entire time, no credible
explanation was given for the wait.

“{ thought for a moment it
might be a problem with beds, and
I could understand that being in
the system (Mrs Pratt was once a
nurse}. But that was not a prob-
lem, because when I went to the
ward I’asked the nurse if there
was a problem with beds and she
said. ‘No Mother Pratt, they called
us after 5 to say that Mr Pratt was
to be admitted and we wondered
what happened, what took them
so long’,” she said.

Mrs Pratt said was not only
complaining for her husband, but
also for the many other Bahami-
ans who have to deal with such
unprofessionalism at A&E.

“As a diabetic they should have
ensured that food was there so he
could have something to eat at 10
o'clock in the night. But by the
time we got there they said the
cafeteria was closed, so one of the
young men had to go out and look
for food for him at 10 o'clock.
These kind of things are not right.

“J am voicing my concern is for
people in general. It didn’t have to
be my husband, it could have been
anybody. For five hours I was at
A&E and it was like a fish market!

“T could hear this doctor arguing
with this teacher, a foreign doc-
tor. He is telling a teacher that he
is doing her a favour by looking
after her boy. And her and this
doctor got into an argument in the
corridor; I mean it was unprofes-
sional,” she said.

Outside the courtroom Mr Miller appeared so

Decision time for Inaguans

WHAT DEVASTATION!

Take a look at today’s front page and weep
for what remains in the wake of an “act of
God” over which man has no control. A vicious
Hurricane, never before experienced by
Inaguans, settled over that island in the darkness
‘of Sunday morning. It didn’t exhaust its windy
‘fury until late that afternoon.

It had left several lifetimes of hard work
_and much sacrifice in twisted ruins behind it.
The small island’s salt industry, its only liveli-
hood, which had taken more than 70 years to
build, had been destroyed. The Morton Salt
Company, which took over an industry started

' by three pioneering New.England brothers —
Wentworth (Bill), Jim and Doug Erickson —
employed 60 per cent of the island’s popula-
tion. Today these workers are jobless, all hoping
that the company will reopen.

_. Visiting the scene Tuesday, Prime Minister
Hubert Ingraham, hoped that “Morton will see
its way clear to restart its operation.” He point.

ed out that “they are critical to the economy of
Inagua.” As a result, he continued, “Inagua

_ enjoys the highest standard of living of any of ©

the islands in the southeast Bahamas. There
are just under 1,000 souls who live on this island
and they have had a fairly good income as a
result of Morton.”

Of course, some of Morton’s younger work-
ers who know nothing of the struggle to turn
Inagua’s salt pans into profit, took strike action,
closing the plant for two weeks, shortly before

the hurricane. The island’s older heads who
helped build the company shook their heads in
disbelief. “The company-has been good to its
employees,” one of them said. “But we are now
dealing with the twenty-first century genera-
tion — a generation without gratitude and with-
out character.”
One ofthe company’s originals, whose mem-
ory recalls the Erickson days, said that many of
the persons employed by Morton today are the

children and grandchildren of the original wark-

ers who helped build the island’s salt industry.
He said that Inaguans in general were not for
the strike, “thé rank and file are not involved,
but there are a few radicals among the workers
and they are intimidating the rest.” 7%

He hadn’t a good'word to say for the union .

leadership. He believed they lacked “charac-

ter”, were “ill-advised” and “not thinking of

the welfare of the island.”

Yesterday, speaking with a Tribune reporter,
a Morton spokesman in Philadelphia, said that
the company’s present plan is to rebuild their
Inagua plant, but ... And therein lies the sting.
“If further down the line in the next week or two

we find out that there’s something we don’t
know about that changes those plans, I suspect
that we might be having a different answer,” he
said.

The only voice blustering in arrogance
among all this doubt, was that of union leader
Obie Ferguson, adviser to Inagua’s unionists.
He is the only one who is certain that Morton
Salt will not leave Inagua. In essence, he is say-
ing that it can’t leave because of the country’s

“low taxes, low regulations and low proce- .

dures.”

Any multinational company would want to do
business in the Bahamas, he said with confi-
dence. Mr Ferguson is fooling himself, and any-
one who believes these empty words are equal-
ly as foolish.

“Morton Salt will never complain about the
productivity or the efficiency of the workers,”
said Mr Ferguson. This is not true. Morton Salt
has already complained about the productivity
and efficiency of its Inagua workers. It has made
comparisons with its other plants. Last year,
when Morton kept all of its 104 non-manage-
ment staff employed during a 15-week period
when no salt was being harvested, it pointed
out that Morton’s costs were “three tirnes above
normal.”

It said that Mexico produced five million
tonnes of salt a year with the capacity to
increase to seven million compared to Mor-
ton’s Inagua plant that produced only 1.2 million
tonnes. Chile also had better production.

“We’re competing globally in a global mar-
ketplace with Mexico and Chile, and in Mexico
the labour costs are much lower than what we
have here,” Morton’s local managing director

’ Glenn Bannister told workers at the time.

--Morton’s lead office spokesman said yes-

terday that it “cannot say with 100 per cent cer-

tainty” that it will keep operating in Inagua if in
the. coming weeks it “tin ds out that it is not
practical.”

The spokesman said that many things will be

taken into consideration before the final deci- -

sion is made.’

We can assure Mr Ferguson that his attitude
and the attitude of his unionists and their behav-
iour in the past several weeks will be very much
a part of the decision making process. That
behaviour could tip the scales the wrong way.

It is dumb for anyone to think that they are
indispensable.

The world will continue to spin without any of .

us.

And Morton Salt can continue to prosper
without Inagua. Let’s pray that they will decide
to keep Inagua in the family.

EDITOR, The Tribune.

I listened to some of the
radio talk show on Love 97

- Tuesday, 9 September. That

was the same day Prime Min-
ister Hubert Ingraham led a
team to assess the damage at
Inagua after Hurricane Ike.
Wendall Jones' guest was Hal-
ston Moultrie.

It was said that the repre-
sentative for Inagua, Alfred
Gray, had not been called by
the Government in connec-
tion with the approaching hur-
ricane. \

Why would Mr. Gray sit
down and wait for a call from
someone in the Government
instead of picking up the
phone himself and calling
NEMA or going to the press

briefings headed by the Prime

Minister?

In fact, I'm sure the Prime
Minister would have been
happy to take Mr. Gray's call
himself and given him any
information he wanted.

The point is that some peo-
ple — apparently including
Mr. Jones and Mr. Moultrie
— fail to acknowledge that the
FNM does have a superior

record of fair play and decen-.

cy when it comes to national
emergencies like hurricanes,
and how to treat the Opposi-
tion generally.

Mr. Moultrie lamented the
lack of a bipartisan approach
when that is exactly the
approach the FNM has taken
in these matters.

In fact, while they were
holding forth, Mr. Ingraham
had just landed in Inagua with
his team and had taken along
not only Mr. Gray, but also
PLP Leader Perry Christie
and PLP Chairperson Glenys
Hanna Martin!

I understand the Opposi-
tion members had been try-
ing to arrange their own char-

ter when they received the ©

invitation from Mr. Ingraham
to go with him to Inagua.
That's the way our Prime Min-
ister and his Government do
things and it's time people like
Mr. Jones and Mr. Moultrie
acknowledge that.

One other thing. A caller to

the show raised the question
about the PLP plan to build
that. three-million dollar
school in Salina Point, Ack-
lins, as an example of. atleged
PLP vision.

The suggestion was that the
school was also to be a hurri-
cane shelter for Acklins.

Mr. Jones neglected to
explain that $3 million was too
much for a school for just 30
plus students.

Furthermore he could have
explained that if the PLP Gov- °
ernment was interested in.a
storm shelter for the island of
Acklins they would not have
put it in the remotest settle-
ment, Salina Point, but some-
where more central.

The truth is that this project
— which was fortunately
stopped, reviewed and can-
celled by the FNM — would
have been a scandalous waste

‘of taxpayers’ money, just like

the straw market would have
been on a grander scale if it
had not been stopped,
reviewed and cancelled by our
responsible FNM Govern-
ment.

SOLID FNM

We need to pay more attention to
our quality of life, Mr Prime Minister

EDITOR, The Tribune.

Please publish this open let-
ter to the Prime Minister:

Dear Mr Prime Minister:
You seem so on the cutting

edge, so with it. How is it

though that you seem deaf to

the abominable noises vehi-.
cles and buses with music, and.

motor bikes, minus their muf-
flers, with riders minus their
senses, make on the streets of
New Providence especially?
For.a long time I’d been
made aware that New York
had stiffened the penalties
severely to deal with persons
who might choose to disturb

the peace with music boom-" ~~
‘vehicles going about, is one

ing in vehicles.

A recent visit to far away
Guyana, revealed that simi-
larly, the Guyanese Govern-
ment has seen fit to outlaw


























music which disturbs the
peace in vehicles and on buses
on the streets of Guyana as
well.

Iam often made to wonder
about this country of ours
being Paradise — often made
to wonder about it being bet-
ter in The Bahamas.

’ We always seem to be so
late and so slow to embrace
and to implement measures
which have to do with main-
taining and enhancing the
quality of life in our country.

Away from the tourist areas
and often times within these
areas as well, life and condi-
tions are so harsh — so trau-
matic.

Thesé foises in and from

unbearable element. Smoking
in public places is another
unforgivable element.

We often seem so slow to
comply and to conform — so
slow to embrace the loftiest
standards, revealing that we,
our. leadership. included,
beneath our trappings of
wealth and success, are an
insensitive, rude, backward




) eee

people. Forgive my candour..

It. is just so unbearable.

That we can tolerate some
of the things we put up with |
socially and in our environ-
ment, indicate clearly how cal-
lous we are.

Why should anyone have to
grow such very thick skin?
Don’t we cease being human
once our skin adept OeS
into hide?

The lighting of fires, ‘chok-
ing our neighbours without
concern, is another infraction
against which nothing is done.

Guyana seemed so soft in
comparison to here a home,
the people so much more mild
mannered. We need to pay

more attention in our society--~ -

Mr Prime Minister, to the fin-
er things — to.what militates
against the quality of life.-

We are so quantity orien-
tated here. Bahamians all
wanting more and more
resulting without fail, in less
and less.

“We apologise for this incon-
venience; however, this action is
necessary to effect upgrades
across the PHA networks. The
Public Hospitals Authority
remains committed to deliver-
ing the highest quality health-
care to the Bahamas and our
visitors,” said the PHA ina
statement.

Four are rescued from sinking
Bahamian boat by US Coast Guard

Vessel had suffered engine failure

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

A US Coast Guard helicopter rescued
four people from a sinking Bahamian fish-
ing boat that was battling “mountainous”
seas 40 miles off Inagua on Sunday
evening.

The 60-foot fishing boat had suffered
engine failure and was taking on water in

70 knot winds and 30 to 35 foot seas, with
40 foot swells, the Coast Guard report-
ed.

The Jayhawk rescue helicopter reached :

it at around 8pm on Sunday, as Category
four Hurricane Ike was still bearing down
on the Southern Bahamas.

A rescue swimmer was sent down to

the fishermen from the helicopter to hoist
the stranded boaters to safety.

The swimmer, Petty Officer 3rd Class
Jon Geskus, said the winds were so strong
that rain was “coming in sideways” against
the helicopter.

On his first trip down, he lost his fins in
the rough waters and part of his suit. “The



Recommendations made
for prison improvements

’ M By LLOYD ALLEN

IN AN effort to transform Her
Majesty’s Prison from a penal insti-
tution into a correctional facility
that aids in the prevention of crime,
a number of recommendations
were made yesterday by prison
administrators at a House Select
Committee meeting on crime.

According to Prison Superin-
tendent Elliston Rahming, one of
the major issues related to the
prison is the increasing number of
inmates the facility can hold.

Dr Rhaming said that the prison
was built about 40 years ago with a
housing capacity for around 1,350
inmates. However, the present pop-
ulation at the facility is about 1,380
inmates.

During his presentation yester-
day morning, Dr Rahming also said
that often, inmates on remand end
up out-numbering sentenced indi-
viduals.

He revealed that in 2007, some
2,556 persons were admitted to the
institution, out of which 68 per cent
were on remand.

Also reported was out of the
1,751 persons admitted between
January and August of this year,
69 per cent were inmates on
remand, and where 22 per cent
were recidivist inmates.

Dr Rahming also noted that
there are no current laws in effect
which allow for the early release
of long term inmates who “no
longer pose a threat to society.”

Dr Rahming said: “I am not sug-

gesting for one second that those *

who commit serious crimes should
be punished lightly. . . I am sug-

gesting however, that we look at '

the intent, the purpose of custodial
punishment and when that purpose
has been served, we resort to alter-
natives on a case by case basis.”
In his address to the committee,
Dr Rahming provided the follow-



Prison Superintendent
Elliston Rahming

‘ing alternatives to turning the

prison into a correctional institu-
tion:

¢ The introduction of a plea bar-
gaining system

e Alternative sentencing for non-
violent and non-dangerous offend-
ers

e Allotting more time to pay for
indigent offenders who’ve been
fined to avoid incarceration

e Introducing electric monitoring
vs traditional remanding for minor
or non-violent offenders

e Expanding the remand facility

e Systematically assessing the
cases of long term sentenced peo-
ple to determine their suitability
for early release

.Dr Rahming feels these ideas
should be the subject of a parlia-
mentary debate, and then be con-
verted into common practice. “The

prison would quickly become an.

instrument of crime prevention,

and not just a place for incarcera-

tion,” he said.

Thr committee, which introduces
initiatives to be converted into bills
for debate in the House of Assem-
bly, is chaired by Bain Town MP
Bernard Nottage.

waves looked like mountains,” he said.

The aircraft was launched from Provi-
dencialies in Turks and Caicos and had to
battle strong wind and rain to reach the
distressed boaters.

After the four were rescued they were
taken to Providenciales airport. No
injuries were reported.

Hospital drill frightens bystanders

@ By NATARIO McKENZIE

AN evacuation drill brought
operations at the Princess Mar-
garet Hospital to a standstill
briefly yesterday as patients,
staff and visitors were forced to
exit the building.

When the Tribune arrived at
the scene, bystanders claimed
that the building had been evac-
uated sometime around
10.30am because of a supposed
bomb threat.

Patients from the accident
and emergency section were
brought outside where hospital
staff tended to them and used
umbrellas to shade for them
from the sweltering heat.

Sergeant Anton Moss of the
police Fire Services Department
confirmed that there was no
real threat, as it was actually an
evacuation drill.

“What actually happened was

that we had an emergency evac-
uation drill in case there was an
actual emergency here at the
hospital. So it’s basically just.a
drill and we’re going to iron out
-some things and try to improve
on how to effectively evacuate if
needed at any possible time,”
Sergeant Moss said. :

Although he gave the evacu-

Sergeant Moss said that timing .

improvement.

'“T know it’s a challenge moy-

thing is, you have to be as quick

“The goal is actually three

with babies in their hands some
in little cradles so that was good

’ to see that people made an

effort,” Sergeant Moss said.
“This was actually a blind drill
and that was always a challenge.
When people know its a drill
they tend to relax but that was
the problem they didn’t know

and they still relaxed,” Sergeant
Moss said.

He said Fire Services fre-
quently conduct such exercises,
however yesterday was the first

“The management team
wishes to assure the public that
the safety of our patients and

staff were not compromised
during the drill and this remains
a priority,” a hospital statement
said.

One bystander who was visit-
ing a sick sister at the hospital
said the fact that there was no
available facility to house the
patients in the event of such a
circumstance was deplorable.

“My sister is right here on this
trolley she has been here from
Monday with a mild stroke. I
think even though its a bomb
scare and the patients security
comes first, to bring all these
patients out here in the hot sun
is deplorable, there ought to be
a backup in the event of a bomb
scare or have some other facili-
ties available,” the man who

Lyndianna Rahming, a nurse
who was visiting a relative,
praised the hospital’s staff for
moving the patient’s out expe-
ditiously.

Nottage faces 8% pension loss if term not.

extended, says Bar Association President

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

SUPREME Court Justice
Rubie Nottage will receive about
eight per cent less in pension pay-
ments if her term is not extended
by another two years, Bar Asso-
ciation President Wayne Munroe
said.

If her term is not extended, the
government would have to pay
her pension in accordance with
her five months of employment
as a justice, and may also have to
pay a salary and subsequent pen-
sion to her replacement. Mr
Munroe said this move would be a
waste of tax-payer money and is
not cost-effective:

"Pensions are based on time of
service. From my recollection
there is not going to be a signifi-
cant difference in it, she will get
the pension that's appropriate to
someone who has served the time
that she has. It's not as spectacular
as people think, so there would
be very little difference there".

Mr Munroe said Section 8 of
the Judges Remuneration and
Pensions. Act says that everyone
other. than the chief justice gets a
pension at the annual rate of 2/5
of the pensionable emolument (or
the annual basic salary) paid to a
judge plus 1/300 of this amount
in respect to each completed
month.

The annual basic salary for a
judge is between $85,000 to
$95,000 plus benefits, Mr Munroe
said.

Mr Munroe said he expects Mrs
Nottage to return to her previous
job as a college professor: where
she will receive a salary along with

a pension for her time served as a

justice.:

"Nothing prevents her from
getting a pension (if) she returns
to that employment. The only dif-
ference will be that instead of pay-
ing the other 3/5 and having that
judge, you will now pay the
(whole amount) to somebody else.
So it costs the country more
because instead of paying 2/5 of



Rubie Nottage

the pension for the next two years
you could have paid her the full
thing and she could have served as
a judge. Now you're going to pay
her (pension) plus you're going
to pay someone the whole salary
and get into a pension for them.



“In America
judges sit until
80 and on,
once their
minds are
clear and all
the rest.”



Ex-senior parliamentarian

It's not a cost effective move,"
said Mr Munroe, adding that he
would be baffled if the govern-
ment did not extend Mrs Not-
tage's employment.

He said the Bar Association has
not been consulted about not
extending Mrs Nottage's appoint-
ment. Nor has he received any
official notice in regards to such 4
move.

He also expressed concern

about "the poor Bahamian peo-
ple" who have cases before Mrs
Nottage and may have to start
again in front of a new judge if
the matters are not completed
before her 65th birthday.

Yesterday a former senior par-
liamentarian told The Tribune
there is a general feeling within
the legal community that the con-
stitution should be amended to
increase the age of retirement for
judges.

"There is a feeling, and I agree
with this; that that's too young an
age and I think the constitution
should be changed to take that
age up, because we have judges
who are just as experienced at that
age. As a matter of fact I believe
that was one of the things that

‘was put in the referendum; that

the age (of 65) be extended. The
FNM wanted to do that, extend
the age of judges. But today you
know, 65 is not considered old. In
America judges sit until 80 and
on, once their minds are clear and
all the rest".

The Tribune understands that
Mrs Nottage's appointment will
not be extended past her 65th
birthday next month. According
to the constitution a justice who
has reached the age of 65 can have
their term’ extended for two years
until the age of 67, however the
prime minister has to make a
request for this extension to the
governor general after consulta-
tion with the leader of the oppo-
sition.

An extension can also be grant-
ed to allow time for the conclusion
of all open cases before a justice
who is due retire.

‘Prime Minister Hubert Ingra-
ham has said he will allow the law
to take its course and declined to
make any further comment on the
matter. PLP leader Perry Christie °
told The Tribune he was consulted
on the issue, but did not divulge
his recommendations.

Mrs Nottage's appointment in
April was steeped in controversy
because of an indictment in the
United States 20 years ago in con-
nection with money laundering
charges. Her name was also men-

FREEPORT - Shalom

Caribbean International and.

Access Ministries International
have launched a television pro-
gramme aimed at promoting the
pro-Zionist message to millions
of people to pray for the peace
of Jerusalem.

Rev Alexis Wallace, president
of Shalom Caribbean Interna-
tional, announced that the pro-
gramme, Shalom Intercessors
Bulletin, began broadcast from
Grand Bahama to over 40 mil-
lion people across Europe this
past Saturday. Grand Bahama
Christian Council president Rev
Sobig Kemp was present for the

announcement held at Access .

Ministries offices in Coral Gar-
dens, Freeport, on Tuesday.
Rev Wallace said the pro-
gramme is being aired on Faith
TV - a Christian movie, docu-
mentary and biography channel
featuring drama, comedy, action,
and educational programmes.
“We were delighted that our
programme was approved to be
aired there, and we will be com-

ing to the Bahamas soon via a .

local channel,” he said. .

Rev Wallace said Shalom
Intercessors Bulletin is a half-
hour variety TV programme that
was produced and recorded in
Freeport at the Pelican Bay
_ Hotel. ,

“TV producers from Atlanta
were brought to Freeport, where
over the course of two weeks sev-
eral Grand Bahama pastors were
selected to address from a biblical
perspective these ‘end time’ ene-
mies of Judah which have become
strategically entrenched within
our Caribbean,” he said.

Rev Wallace is committed to
seeing that the Caribbean
becomes a “Zionist region.”

“Shalom Caribbean is dedicat-

ed to forming stronger alliances

': sbetween.the nation of {srael and

the Caribbean and this is what
pro-Zionism is all about. Shalom

Intercessors is dedicated to the-

biblical mandate of praying for
the peace of Jerusalem as Psalms
122:6 tells us, ‘pray for the peace

- of Jerusalem: they shall prosper
that love thee’. ”

Rev Wallace noted that the
programme has already received
a lot of local support and will
begin airing in the Bahamas
before the end of the month.

“We have already met with
Cable Bahamas and a local chan-
nel. This media outreach was
strongly supported by the local
business community enabling a

full season of television pro--

grammes to be recorded,” he said.

In addition to the programme,
Rev Wallace said that Shalom
Caribbean has visited many
churches in New Providence, edu-
cating persons about the Judaic
heritage of the Caribbean and the
Bahamas. “We shared a power
point presentation of the rich
Judaic heritage of our region that
dates all the way back to Christo-
pher Columbus. ,

“And these presentations left
audiences more encouraged to
pray for the peace of Jerusalem as
they realise the rich Hebrew her-
itage and current influence that
have been key in'the building of
our nations and region,” he said.

Grand Bahama Christian
Council president Rev Kemp and
other local pastors support the
programme and what Shalom
Caribbean and Access Ministries
are doing to promote the mes-
sage of Pro-Zionism.

“We endorse the ministry of
Shalom Caribbean International
and Shalom Intercessors because
the work they are doing is really
remarkable, and the presentation
Rev Wallace has been making
throughout the churches is very
enlightening, informative, and

very inspirational. “The Bible
teaches us that God will bless’
those who bless his chosen peo-
ple, the Jews. So everyone who
supports Israel is guaranteed a

. blessing from the Lord. If you

look at Israel today considering
what they have experienced,
God’s blessing is definitely evi-
dent and manifest in their lives
like never before, and we now
have come to the realisation and
acknowledgment that we should
support the Jews and every
Israelite,” said Rev Kemp.

GRAND TURK, Turks Island
— Prime Minister Hubert Ingra-
ham, in his capacity as chairman
of the Caribbean Disaster Emer-
gency Response Agency
(CDERA), toured the stormed
ravaged Grand Turk and South
Caicos on Tuesday.

Turks and Caicos Premier
Michael Misick lauded Mr Ingra-
ham’s visit and said it represents
the close bond between his coun-
try and the Bahamas.

Arriving in Grand Turk aboard
a US Coast Guard helicopter, Mr
Ingraham along with Bahamas
National Security Minister Tom-
my Turnquest, were given a first-
hand view of the damage caused
by Hurricane Ike and. Tropical
Storm Hanna. Prior to his arrival
in the Turks and Caicos Islands,
Mr Ingraham toured the island
of Inagua, over which Ike passed
as a category four hurricane.

“We thank Prime Minister
Ingraham for coming and show-
ing his support,” Premier Misick
told reporters at the Grand Turk
International Airport.

“As you know, the Turks and
Caicos and the Bahamas are one
people, we feel each other’s
pain.”

Mr Ingraham also highlighted
the long-standing relationship
between the Bahamas and the
Turks and Caicos.

“We were delighted to have
the opportunity to come down
and show solidarity with our
brothers and sisters here in the
Turks and Caicos,” Mr Ingraham
said. “The relationship between
the Bahamas and the Turks and
Caicos is long-standing and strong
and we in the Bahamas will do
all we can to assist.

“We will be holding discussions
with the Premier to determine
the extent to which assistance
from the Bahamas would be nec-
essary and/or required, and we

would undertake to do all we can °

to ensure that restoration of com-
munities in Grand Turk and
South Caicos is achieved in the
shortest possible time,” he said. -

Many homes and businesses on
Grand Turk sustained varying
degrees of roof and other struc-
tural damage.

During his tour of the island,
Mr Ingraham was met by Lydia
Henfield, who relayed her har-
rowing tale of survival during
Hurricane. Ike, Ms Henfield and

from the wide spread damage left
in Ike’s aftermath.

Morton Salt could close

FROM page one

these difficult economic
times.

“I think we’re committed to
doing what we can do. Right
now our plans are to bring the
plant back up. If we find out
further down the line that
that’s not practical we’d have
to reassess at that time. I know
it’s an equivocal statement,
but we haven’t crossed that
bridge yet.”

Mr Bochanski, a manager
of executive communication
and communication technol-
ogy at Morton International’s

’ parent company Rohm and

Haas, consulted yesterday
with Morton International’s
head office, which was in con-
tact with a team of Morton
executives just back in the
United States from a trip to
Inagua.

Rohm and Haas are cur-
rently in the process of being
taken over by the Dow Chem-
ical Company. :

“We’re focusing on site
assessment and clean up. Our
plan’s to resume operations at
the site as soon as we can. The
site did receive significant
damage. We have some struc-
tural engineers who will be
making assessment of dollar
amount, so I don’t have the

dollar amount, but I can tell
you it is significant.”

Mr Bochanski added:
“Right now based on what
they saw and the plan we have
in place it is our intention to
bring the plant back up. If fur-
ther down the line in the next
week or two we find out that
there’s something we don’t
know about that changes
those plans, I suspect that we
might be having a different
answer.”

He said the company’s main
priority is on working with the
Bahamas Electricity Corpora-
tion, which will be taking over
the operation of the island’s
power plant from Morton Salt
at the end of the month, to
restore the electricity supply.

Meanwhile, with the com-
pany hoping to bring workers
back in a gradual “phased”
way, they are considering
what financial relief they may
offer to Inaguans who will be
out of work for sometime.

“IT can’t tell you what that
will be but probably in the
next day or two we will know.
Whether relief would better
go to employees directly or
maybe to a third party like the
Red Cross will have to be
determined,” he said.

Despite the uncertain state-
ments from Mr Bochanski,

Trade Union Congress leader
Obie Ferguson — who acts as
legal adviser to the Morton
Salt’s union, the Bahamas
Industrial Manufacturers and
Allied Workers Union —
expressed his confidence yes-
terday that Morton Salt will
not pull out of Inagua.

* He said the union is com-
mitted to working with man-
agement to “normalise things
as best as possible so the com-
pany can really get on and
start making money” and he
would “certainly encourage
them to continue to operate
in the Bahamas.”

“Morton Salt (Inagua) is a
major investment for the com-
pany,” said Mr Ferguson.

“The Bahamas is really an
investment area for most
multinational corporations.
It’s low on taxes, low on regu-
lations, low on procedures; so

‘any multinational company

would want to do business in
the Bahamas,” said Mr Fer-
guson..

He also pointed to the pro-
ductivity level of Inaguans at
the plant as another mark in

favour of the company

remaining committed to the
isolated island.

“Morton Salt will never ’

complain about the produc-
tivity or the efficiency of the

workers,” he said.

Mr Ferguson said that the
Trade Union Congress will
also “be doing what we can
do for the people up there” in
terms of also coming up with
some sort of relief offering.

“You don’t just put the
responsibility on the employer
or government as unions we
have responsiblity. We’ve got
to be brothers.”

Although salt plant work-
ers are normally on regular
salaries as defined under their
fixed term industrial agree-
ment, “when you have crises
those rules are relaxed,”
explained the trade union
leader.

“You have to look at the
bigger picture. In order to do
that you have to forget cer-
tain things for the time being.
That’s the recommendation
I’ll be making,” he said.

“The union president would
appreciate the severity of what
happened and will sit down

. intelligently, listen to compa-

ny’s position, the members’
position.

“You want the company to
survive. If the company does-
n’t exist you would have a
problem. So while you want -
to improve your situation you
look at what’s best for
Inagua,” he added.

Darold Miller is acquitted

¢ Providing assistance in the early stage of delinquencies.

FROM page one

The charges were frivolous, vexatious and
a complete waste of the precious time of
the courts," Mr Miller said. “Throughout
the trial I wondered,, how could this be,
where is this society going with such a
travesty of justice.” Mr Miller likened his
prosecution to a.witch hunt, claiming that
it was never about sexual harassment.
“This exercise was like a witch hunt and
it ain’ had nothing to do with sexual

harassment, absolutely nothing. It had to .

do with moneys that were owed to me
that they refused to pay. It happened 40

days before the election, so you know pol-

itics was involved and it had to do with a
stand IJ took against sissyism in this coun-
try. We have lost our moral compass in this
country and when good men and women
stand up, you see what the consequences
can be, but God is a good God and I have
my faith in the Almighty God,” Mr Miller
said.

FROM page one

He explained that within the
prison system, in which
inmates are in a déprived envi-

“I have instructed my brilliant team of
lawyers to move quickly and bring civil
action against those who have maligned

my good character and who have defamed-

me,” Mr Miller said.

“GEMS owes me a lot of money and
God knows I need it. I ain work in 18
months, get my money ready, I comin’,”
Mr Miller said.

“My lawyers will be filing action quick-

ly, if not this day on the next," Mr Miller
said.

Thanking his supporters Mr Miller said
that throughout his experience he came to
know who his true friends were. “It’s been

18 long months and there were many times -

during those18 months that I was broke,
didn’t have a dollar, thank God for people
like Frank Hanna.

“When ‘you go through these valley
experiences you really know who your
friends are,” Mr Miller said.

“My phone used to ring a hundred times
a day, when they brought these false
charges against me it stopped ringing, only

one or two people were calling and Frank
Hanna was one of them,” he said.

“As I consider the options for my future
I think the only option I will consider is to
help the government transform
ZNS into what it ought to be,” Mr Miller
said.

“T have chartered a new course in my life
now. For 37 years I worked tirelessly,
burned the midnight oil running after fire
engine and ambulance, covering straw
market fire and hanging, hurricane and
everything else and never really made any
money. Finally I was about to make some
money and you see what they did," Mr

Miller said.

Mr Miller said that his popular daytime
talk show will return to the airwaves.

"The Darold Miller show will return in
a syndicated: form. It will be carried by
whoever wants to carry it," he said.

"God willing, P’ll be back," Mr Miller
said, although he admitted that because of
the whole ordeal he was tempted to call it
quits.

Wireless

$50 credit after
Hurricane Ike

THE Bahamas Telecommu-
nications Company (BTC) has
announced that it will provide
all wireless customers in Inagua
with a complimentary $50 cred-
it following the devastating
impact of Hurricane Ike.

The company deemed this °
goodwill gesture as “absolutely
necessary”, as residents in this—~
island can only communicate
with family members and loved
ones through their cellular
phones. °

BTC executive vice-presi-
dent, I Kirk Griffin said, “As a
result of the damage on the
island of Inagua, all ‘landline
services are presently down,
however residents are able to
use their GSM:and TDMA cell
phones. We know that this time
is critical to the people of
Inagua, and we hope that this
$50 credit will assist our cus-
tomers during these challeng-
ing times.”

Re-creating the ‘Big Bang’

Scientists in Switzerland
to do the monster smash

@ [1 brief

Kim Jong li: a
familiar face
but a mystery —
to most

H SEOUL, South Korea

UNPREDICTABLE, elo-
quent, a film buff and a gour-
mand. North Korea’s Kim
Jong IJ is infamous for ruling
his impoverished country with
a “military first” policy since
the death of his father, but lit-
tle is known about his daily
life, according to the Associat-
ed Press.

There was no sign of Kim
at a para 2 Tuesday marking
the 60th anniversary of North
Korea’s founding, and West-
ern Officials say the 66-year-
old leader — who has not
appeared publicly for a month
— may be gravely ill.

Abroad, many consider the
pudgy, bouffant-haired Kim a
ruthless dictator who seeks
atomic weapons while starv-
ing his people. But at home,

the state-run media hails the /

“Dear Leader” as a prodigious
general, an ace film director
and the “Lodestar of the 21st
Century.”

Kim’s portrait is found
hanging beside his father’s in
North Korean households and
buildings, and his writings and
philosophy, mainly praise for
his father’s greatness and calls
for the defense of socialism,
are reported and broadcast
daily.

Biographical insight on Kim
is extremely sketchy. He rarely
appears in public and his voice
is seldom broadcast. But
defectors from North Korea

describe him as an eloquent
and tireless orator, primarily
to military units that form the
base of his support.

The reclusive Kim took
power in 1994 after the death
of his father, Kim I] Sung,
North Kv .ea’s founding ruler.
It was communism’s first
hereditary transfer of power,
and both Kims are revered in a
vast personality cult perpe-
trated by the country’s author-
itarian regime, which tolerates
no dissent.

Kim Jong II focused on the
military in his “songun,” or
“military-first” credo — devot-
ing much of the country’s
scarce resources to its troops
— the world’s fifth-largest mil-
itary, the 1.1 million-strong
People’s Army.

The policy was manifested
in Kim’s pursuit of nuclear
weapons that culminated in ©
North Korea’s first nuclear test
explosion in October 2006.

However, Kim shut down
the country’s sole nuclear reac-
tor in July of 2007 after the
U.S. helped resolve a separate
financial ispute.

North Korea suffered
famine and poverty in the mid-
1999s with as many as 2. mil-
lion people believed to have
died due to the loss of Soviet
aid, exacerbated. by natural
disasters and. outdated farm-
ing methods.

Kim has laid the blame for
North Korea’s problems
squarely on outside powers
and the country hurls daily
propaganda tirades at the
United States and Japan.

His image is familiar around
the world: short and rotund at
5-foot 3 inches, he wears plat-
form shoes and a bouffant
hairstyle to appear taller.

‘Khaki jumpsuits and sun-
glasses are his trademark
attire.

He is said to be a movie fan
who owns about 20,000 for-
eign films. He reportedly has
produced several films, mostly
historical epics with an ideo-
logical tinge.

He rarely travels abroad
and then only by train, once
heading all the way by luxury
rail car to Moscow, where he
also was able to indulge his
taste for fine food.



@ GENEVA
Associated Press

SCIENTISTS will launch an
experiment in a tunnel deep
beneath the French-Swiss bor-
der Wednesday, hoping to find
evidence of extra dimensions,
invisible “dark matter,” and an
elusive particle called the “Hig-
gs boson.”

And although leading physi-
cists such as Stephen Hawking
say the atom-smashing experi-
ment will be absolutely safe,
some skeptics fear the proton
collisions could unleash micro-
scopic black holes that would
eventually doom the Earth.

The most powerful atom-
smasher ever built will produce
collisions of protons traveling at
nearly the speed of light in the
circular tunnel, giving off show-
ers of particles that will provide
more clues as to how everything
in the universe is made.

In the $10 billion project —
the most extensive physics
experiment in history — the
Large Hadron Collider will
come ever closer to re-enacting
the “big bang,” the theory that a
colossal explosion created the
cosmos.

The project, organized by the
20 member nations of the Euro-
pean Organization for Nuclear
Research — known by its
French initials CERN — has
attracted researchers of 80
nationalities. Some 1,200 are
from the United States, an
observer country that con-
tributed $531 million.

The collider is designed to

push the proton beam close to.

the speed of light, moving
around the 17-mile tunnel at
11,000 times a second at full
power. Ramping up to full pow-
er is probably a year away.
Smaller colliders have been
used for decades to study the
atom. Scientists once thought
protons and neutrons were the
smallest components of an

‘ atom’s nucleus, but experiments

have shown they were made of
still smaller quarks and gluons,
and that there were other forces
and particles. ‘

The CERN experiments
could reveal more about “dark
matter,” antimatter and possi-
bly hidden dimensions of space
and time. It could also find evi-
dence of the hypothetical parti-
cle — the Higgs boson — which
is sometimes called the “God
particle.” It is believed to give
mass to all other particles, and
thus to matter that makes up
the universe.

The two beams of protons will .

travel in two tubes about the
width of fire hoses, speeding
through a vacuum that is colder
and emptier than outer space.
Their trajectory will be curved
by supercooled magnets — to
guide the beams.

_ The paths of these beams will
cross, and a few protons will col-
lide.

The two largest detectors —
essentially huge digital cameras
weighing thousands of tons —
are capable of taking millions
of snapshots a second.

Some skeptics have said the
collisions could result in tiny
black holes — subatomic ver-
sions of collapsed stars whose
gravity is so strong they can suck
in planets and other stars.

Micro black holes produced
by a collider, the critics theo-
rize, would move mare slowly
and might be trapped inside the
Earth’s gravitational field — and
eventually threaten the planet.

“It’s nonsense,” said CERN
chief‘spokesman James Gillies.

John Ellis, a British theoreti-
cal physicist at CERN, said
doomsayers assume that the col-
lider will create micro black
holes in the first place, which he
called unlikely.

And even if they appeared,
he said, they would instantly
evaporate, as predicted by
Hawking.

@ MEXICO CITY .

MEXICO’S notoriously
unreliable postal service is get-
ting the shock treatment —
shocking pink, that is, accord-
ing to the Associated Press.

Infamous for lost packages
and tardy delivery, the postal
service is getting a hot-pink
makeover to try to brighten up
its image, win back customers
— and pull it out of the red.

Changes include a new logo,

-~new uniforms and pink-and-

lime-green painted post offices.
Some will also sell cut-rate rice,
beans and powdered milk
alongside stamps. Coffee mugs
and envelopes — something
the post office didn’t sell before
— will also be available, but
only in hot pink and lime
green.

The service’s new symbol —
a white carrier pigeon holding a
letter in its beak — hit the
streets Tuesday, a day after

unveiled the new look at a gala
ceremony. The government

because “we want to be very

All 1,450 post offices will be

both inside and out.

But in a country where mail
theft is widespread and letters
often arrive weeks after they’re
sent, the public is skeptical.

City resident Beatriz Stern said

only because she doesn’t
believe anyone bothers to col-
lect mail from the country’s red
street-corner mailboxes.

“They say it was faster in |

colonial times, when they used
horses and carriages,” Stern
said.

The new name, Correos de
Mexico, or Mexican Mail, is
actually a throwback to the
days of the early 20th century,
when the service was trusted
and the government built.a
main post office meant to look
like a Renaissance palace.

While there will be no hors-
es, the new postal uniform
unveiled Tuesday — a visored
cap and shirts of lime green,
hot pink and white — look like
something jockeys would wear.

“T think they’re focusing a
little too much on appearances
and not substance,” he said.

Mexico’s postal service deliv-
ers only about seven pieces of
mail per inhabitant per year;
Americans get an average of
700.

The low volume reflects a
lack of confidence. Federal
officials acknowledge ‘most
businesses won’t send bills,
statements or receipts through
the mail, preferring pricey but
safer private courier services,
about 4,000 of which have
sprung up here, according to
industry estimates.

American
performer:
israeli
security made
me dance.

m By JOSEF FEDERMAN
JERUSALEM

A PERFORMER with the
famed Alvin Ailey dance troupe
on Tuesday said he was twice
forced to perform steps for
Israeli airport security officers
to prove his identity before he
was permitted to enter the
country, according to the Associ-
ated Press. :

Abdur-Rahim Jackson, a
eight-year veteran of the dance
ensemble, said he was singled
out by Israel’s renowned airport
security because he has a Mus-
lim name. He called the experi-
ence embarrassing and said at
one point, one of the officers
even suggested he change his
name.

“To be greeted like this
because of my name, it took me
back a little bit,” said Jackson,
who is black.

_ Israel is the first stop on a six-
nation tour celebrating the New
York-based dance company’s ~
50th anniversary. Earlier this
year, Congress passed a resolu-
tion calling the Alvin Ailey
American Dance Theater a
“vital American cultural ambas-
sador to the world.”

Jackson said he was pulled
aside from‘other members of
the troupe when they arrived at
Israel’s international airport on
Sunday night. He said he was
taken to a holding room, where
he was asked about the origins
of his name. When he explained
he was part of the dance group,
he was asked to perform.

“T stood up. I asked what type
of dance?” he explained. “He
said, “Just do anything.’ I just
moved around.”

Minutes later, he said a
female officer put him through a
similar interrogation and asked
him to dance again.

“The only time I’m really
expected to dance is when I’m
performing,” he said.

Jackson said he received his
name because his father was a
convert to.Islam. Jackson said
he was not raised a Muslim,
does not consider himself reli-
gious and is engaged to a Jewish
woman in the troupe who has
relatives in Israel.

Jackson said he did not plan
to press the matter further, say-
ing the numerous apologies he
has received from American
dignitaries and his Israeli hosts '
is “enough for me.” The Israel
Ports Authority said it had no
comment because it did not
receive a formal complaint.

The incident was reported in
Israel’s largest newspaper and
on an Israeli television news and
interview program. “The securi-
ty guards should be sent home
or (the airport) will become a
mental asylum,” said Motti Kir-
shenbaum, a veteran commen-
tator. and host of the Channel 10
TV program.

Israel is constantly on the
alert for attack because of the
Israel-Palestinian conflict and
extremist Islamic rejection of
the Jewish state’s existence.
Security is strict at all entry
points and-inside the country.

Israel is famous for the effec-
tiveness of its airport security.
But a key element in its security
checks is ethnic profiling.

POTI, Georgia

BOMB craters scar Georgia’s
devastated naval port, and
Russian forces dig in at a
bustling base nearby. Half-emp-
ty beach resorts count the loss-
es from a ruined summer sea-
son, according to the Associated
Press.

Along the former Soviet
republic’s balmy, palm-lined
Black Sea coast, last month’s

- war with Russia has stirred

anger over Moscow’s brazen
occupation and anxiety about
the future of a country still
struggling to its feet after the
Soviet collapse.

The war broke out Aug. 7 in
South Ossetia, far to the east,
when Russia responded to a
Georgian offensive by sending
troops, tanks and warplanes that
soon drove deep into Georgian
territory.

One of the first Russian tar- —

gets was the military port at
Poti, which bore the brunt of
what Georgian officials and
shaken residents say was a mid-
night bombing raid by Russian
warplanes.

-“There were bombs falling
and explosions, and people run-

‘ ning everywhere,” said Zia Kve-

lesiani, a weathered 45-year-old
woman selling sunflower seeds
at the adjacent commercial port
as the flagship of the U.S.
Navy’s 6th Fleet anchored to
deliver humanitarian aid.

The damage was starkly clear.

The flagship of Georgia’s own
tiny naval fleet, the missile boat
Dioskuria, lay submerged at
dockside; only the top protrud-
ed from the water. Another mis-
sile boat was in pieces nearby,
and a white coast guard cutter
lolled at an awkward angle with
part of its deck under water.

A total of eight navy and
coast guard ships. were
destroyed by the Russians, who
set off explosives on board dur-
ing nearly daily intrusions at the
military port, said Capt. Lt.
Alexander Kutateladze, who
served aboard the Dioskuria.

Several small bomb craters

‘dotted the docks. Georgia’s
two-story naval headquarters
building was pocked with bullet

‘and shrapnel marks.

“One of our men was killed
in there,” Kutateladze said,
pointing at a blown-out window.

He said five serviceman were
killed and 25 were wounded in
the Russian attack.

Inside, the building had been
ransacked. A room used for
English lessons provided by a
British government agency was
a jumble of damaged desks, les-

son books and scattered papers.

Officials said five workers
were killed and 40 people
injured at the commercial port,
where walls and two towering
tanks for oil products, were
scarred by shrapnel. Two of the
dead were killed by a bomb that
took out the main power supply,
officials said.

Medvedev promised to withdraw all Russian forces from positions outside Abkhazia and South Ossetia within about a month.





and a razor-wire fence. An
excavator dug new holes in the
earth nearby.

The Russian post is one of
two on the outskirts of Poti, a
presence the U.S. and Euro-
pean Union say violates the

terms of a cease-fire calling for .

a withdrawal to positions they
held before the war...

“They have no right to be
here,” said Ketino Kebuchava, a
shop owner in Poti who fled
Abkhazia, a separatist province
farther north on the coast; when
it broke from Georgian goy-

ernment control in an early
1990s war.

With Russian forces ringing
Abkhazia, she fears she will
never return to her hometown.

On Monday, Georgia accused
Russia of reinforcing its posts
near Poti over the weekend
while French President Nicolas
Sarkozy pressed Moscow to
honor a cease-fire agreement
that included a pledge to with-
draw its troops from Georgia.

After the meeting with
Sarkozy, Russian President
Dmitry Medvedev said Russian

bad luck to open a hotel a few
blocks from the stony beach in
Batumi, a port and resort city, |

“The hotel was almost full

All but one guest left after

Makharadze hopes the bank

“We can’t have a war every

hand held by a defender who has
entered the bidding. The attentive
declarer simply brings this picture
into focus and proceeds to take
advantage of it.

Assume you’re in three notrump
and West leads the king of spades,
which you duck. West continues with
the queen, East showing out, and you
win with the ace. You lead the J-10-5
of hearts, winning all three finesses,
and, after cashing the ace, you are

cash the A-K of clubs and, if the
queen does not appear, exit from
dummy with the ten of spades in an
effort to endplay West. This play suc-
ceeds whenever West has two or
more diamonds, which is surely a
juicier prospect than taking a finesse
in either minor suit.

In the actual case, both the prem-
ise and the promise pay off because,
after West cashes his spades, he is
forced to lead a diamond from the
king and hand you your ninth trick.

BAGHDAD, IRAQ

AS IRAQI and American diplomats negotiate
how long and under what circumstances American
troops will remain in Iraq, Iraqis are also debating
the issue, according to the c.2008 New York Times
News Service. For Iraqis, as for Americans, the
answer is far more complex than a simple “stay” or

“90.” For both it is about blood, treasure, pride, :

dignity and a nation’s sense of itself and its place in
the world. :

&
But a lot more Iraqi blood than American has .

already been spilled, and stands to be spilled again,
if the politicians get it wrong. On the streets of
Iraq the questions being asked about the continu-
ing’ American presence are about sovereignty, sta-
bility and America’s intentions in Iraq past, present
and future: How many American troops will stay?
How quickly will they go? If they stay, where will
they be based? To do what? With what powers?
And under what restrictions?

For the most part, Itaqis’ views generally fall
into, three categories. One group, which includes
many followers of the Shiite cleric Muqtada al-
Sadr, and some intensely nationalist Sunni Arabs in
parts of the country that havesuffered the worst

. Since the inyasion, simply want the Americans to

. leave, period. ‘They say no amount of American
effort now can make up for the horrors of the
occupation, including the destruction of society
and the killing of innocent civilians.

A second group takes a similarly dim view of the
occupation, but worries that the brief period this
year of improving security in Iraq will be vulnera-
ble if the Americans abruptly withdrew. They say
the United States has a moral obligation to remain,
and that continued presence of the ‘occupiers is
preferable to a return to rule by gangs and militias.
A third group worries that without a referee, Itaq’s
dominant powers — Kurds in the far north and Shi-

AN IRAQI ARMY soldier st

ites in the center and south — will brutally domi-
nate other groups. The Americans are not the first
to face such dilemmas in Iraq. In August 1920,
only two years after his declining colonial power
had emerged from the devastation of World War I,
the British secretary of war, Winston Churchill,
wrote (but did not send) a letter'to his prime min-
ister that contained this assessment of
Mesopotamia: as
“It seems to me so gratuitous that after all the
struggles of war, just when we want to get togeth-
er our slender military resources and re-establish —
our finances and have a little in hand in case of dan-
ger here or there, we should be compelled to go on
pouring armies and treasure into these thankless
deserts.” civ What

A millennium and a half earlier, in A.D. 694, the
Umayyad provincial governor Al-Hajjaj also faced
a fractious Baghdad. His response to one angry
crowd was a speech learned by all Iraqi school-
children: “I see heads before me that are ripe and
ready for the plucking, and I am the one to pluck

‘them, and I see blood glistening between the tur-

bans and the beards.” The turbans melted away.
Five years later, Al-Hajjaj faced a rebellion in a
troublesome region to his east, which forced him to
move troops from Iraq.
That rebellion was in Kabulistan, now part of

- Afghanistan, a historical parallel that drew a wry

smile from Gen. David H. Petraeus, the comman-.

’ der of American forces in Iraq, when it was point-

ed it out to him last month.

Petraeus will soon move up the chain of com- °

mand to take over the Central Command region,
making him responsible for a region that covers

_both Irag and what was Kabulistan.

Names and regimes change, but there is nothing
new under the Mesopotamian sun.

The debate goes on. Following are:some Iraqi
perspectives on whether and how American troops
should stay in their country.

LEAVE?






Mahmoud Rauf Mahmoud, Pool

IRAQI ARMY Maj. Gen. Qassim Atta al-Moussawi, left, spokesman for
Operation Fardh al-Qanoon, gestures as he appears with U.S. military
spokesman. Brig. Gen. David Perkins, during a news conference at the
U.S.-protected Green Zone in Baghdad, Iraq, Sunday, Sept. 7, 2008.

THE CHOICE IS NOT OURS: AMERICA WANTS TO STAY

“J don’t expect that the Americans will leave Iraq because they reached the maximum level of political
influence in the region. America is controlling the future of energy, so I believe it’s not to America’s ben-
efit for it to leave Iraq.”

— ISMAIL KABABCHI, 38 |

a restaurant worker from central Baghdad

“America will not leave Iraq. I think my grandsons’ grandsons will watch Uncle Sam and his blue jeans.
The idea that America will depart is a kind of delusion because America came for its interests in Iraq. Iraq
represents the most important treasure in the struggle among the superpowers for it includes plenty of wealth
in addition to its important geographic location. In the long run, America will not leave Iraq because it
reached the treasure of the world.”

— SAID AL-MAJMAYI, 50

a painter in Baqouba

OR MAYBE IT DOESN'T

“I expect that the Americans will leave Iraq sooner or later because they can’t control the security situ-
ation. I expect their departure within the next few months because of the achievements of the Iraqi secu-
rity forces and the Awakening in terms of seeurity and stability. That will help the American forces leave
Iraq and save the rest of their dignity before the situation turns bad’again like between 2004 and 2005.”

— ABU ABDUL QADER AL-JUMAYLI, 60:

a retired army officer from Fallujah

“The withdrawal is coming, no doubt. America has lost its influence in Iraq to a very great and dangerous
degree. The No. 1 country in the world didn’t imagine that it would become a toy in the hand of radical par-
ties and armed groups, or some powers which will ally with America at daytime and conspire against it at
night.” . :

— MATEEN OMAR OJ, 32

a teacher from Kirkuk ;
AMERICA MUST LEAVE IRAQ NOW

“We want to push them out immediately. We don’t need them and we don’t want them. We ha. - two gov-
ernments, the Iraqi and American governments. We are confused about who we neet!'to obey, the Amer-
icans or Iraqis. And both the American and Iraqi governments are hurting the Iraqi people.”

— ABDUL RAHMAN HAMED HUSSEIN :.

a social worker in Abu Dshir, south of Baghdad, who follows the radical Shiite cleric Muqtada al-Sadr

“T want them to leave because they caused destruction for us, they have robbed us and they never gave
us any of what they had promised to give us, Ifa civil war bréaks out after their departure, it would be. their
doing. It’s going on now because of them. They are inflaming it. *’ eT

Iraqis have proved that they are not being seduced by tlie American actions. Their departure is the begin-
ning of the road toward stability. What ever happens after their-withdrawal, it will be finished within a year.”

— MUHAMMAD SNAD, 36 ;

electrical technician from Mosul

~ WEDON'T LOVE THE AMERICANS, BUT WITHDRAWAL IS WORSE

“T am not with the coalition forces’ withdrawal from Iraqi currently, because chaos and destruction will

be all over Iraq. Even before the Americans came, we used to have genocide, destruction and wars. We know .

that the’ Americans came for their own benefit, yet they are our only solution.”
' —NISREEN HASSAN, 25 Po

a teacher in Sulaimaniya at

“The presence of the American forces will make Iraq a regional and international power. If the Amer-

icans withdraw, Iraq will be subject to domination from neighboring countries which support terrorism in
Iraq to protect their interests, so the departure of the American forces doesn’t serve Iraq’s interest.”

— ABD MUHAMMAD AL-BEDEER ;

from Samawa

IF IT'S NOT THE AMERIGANS, SOMEOWE ELSE WILL TAKE OVER

“The coalition forces are the best solution to Iraq’s situation, they are just like a strong dam against the
outside and the inside enemies and even the neighboring countries. They are all wolves, the Arabs, the Per-

. sians,and the Turks.”

— JALEEL MAHMOOD, 31
Sulaimaniya ‘
“Staying is the best thing for Iraq. If the Americans depart, half of Iraq will go to the Kurds and Iran will
take the other half. We need a safety valve. America occupied Iraq and must solve the problems before its
departure: America’s departure will increase the problems”.
— AMJAD SALAH, 34

a driver from Basra . :
THE DREAM DEFERRED: PLEASE GO, JUST NOT YET

“J don’t want them to leave right now, but I don’t want to see them here forever. Soorier or later the Amer-
icans have to leave Iraq or understand that our policy differs from their policy. They have to recognize the
sovereignty of Iraq. I’d love to-keep good relations with America rather than telling bad stories to my kids
about it.” ,

— HUDA HANI, 33

a Shiite employee of the Ministry of Higher Education in Baghdad

“I’m against the Americans withdrawing before we have a fully independent government and security
forces. I witnessed many terrible things with the Americans and I don’t want the same thing to happen with
the next generations. It would be better for both sides to have a scheduled withdrawal.”

— MUHAMMAD MAHDI, 28

a Sunni graduate of the College of Arts who now works as a taxi driver in Baghdad

“No one accepts the residence of the occupier but the withdrawal should be studied well and not ran-
domly. Things are getting better now and we don’t want anything to affect that. The Americans are prob-
ably one of the reasons behind the previous chaos, but their quick withdrawal will generate bigger chaos.”

— SALIM MUHAMMAD, 40

from Najaf
SAVING NO AND MEANING YES

“All of them declare in public that they are against the Americans remaining in Iraq. They demand
Iraqi liberation. They always raise the same slogan: Independence for Iraq. But in private sessions or
meetings they are always telling me and other reporters that the Americans must stay, and that if they
leave right now it would be a big mistake. The reasons for this political hypocrisy are like a disease.
Most of the Iraqi politicians suffer from it. Their aim is to maintain their reputation in the p' “lic eye.”

— TAREQ MAHER

an employee of The New York Times in Baghdad

“In public we say we do not want American troops, but our hearts say they should stay in Iraq until
we become a state of institutions based on democracy and dialogue, not violence.

Most of our recent leaders are tiny in the political world and the Americans want to teach them how
to be leaders. Really we need them to stay more. They are a fence against Iran’s ambitions toward Iraq.”

— AHMED HASOON, 38

a teacher in Basra
NEVER MIND THE TROOPS, I'M LEAVING IRAQ

“At night in all seasons, especially in summer, it is so very, very hot because we are suffering from
electricity shortages and water shortages. So many times I have to buy my baby’s milk from the black
market. The American forces have been here for such a long time, and still it is not stable and noth-
ing is sure. Sometimes I feel that I should leave Iraq and claim asylum or refugee status, so that lat-
er on I would be lucky enough to get another nationality, which would make me feel respectable and
that I have some rights. As an Iraqi now I cannot help my country improve. But maybe later on with
a new nationality I would be able to come back and do something. Only then will my voice be
heard.” ‘

THE Bahamian private sec-

comes to driving this nation’s
economy, a leading contractor

told Tribune Business yester-:

Fully agreeing with Christo-

this week told this newspaper
that being in business was

Cable’s double
digit growth

@ By NEIL HARTNELL
Tribune Business Editor

CABLE Bahamas saw steady

revenue growth across its three —
main business segments during -

the 2008 first half, with net
income increasing by 25 per
cent to $12.9 million as the com-
pany’s chairman said it was
well-placed to combat the “mar-.
ket declines” experienced to
date. .

Brendan Paddick, in his half-

’ year update to shareholders,

said the company’s core cable
television business generated 5
per cent revenue growth dur-
ing the first-six months of 2008,
when compared to the same
period in 2007.

Total revenues increased
from $21.2 million to $22.3 mil-
lion, with ‘sales of Cable
Bahamas’ Ocean Digital pre-
mium services growing by 669
set-top boxes in the second
quarter.

This, in turn, took digital box
sales for ithe 2008 first half to
3,454, a 7.7 per cent increase for
the year-to-date.

Mr Paddick said: “We can

attribute this increase in boxes

issued to our set-top box rental
programmes, which began in
Eleuthera and Abaco in May

~ 2008. The Nassau rentals gained .

an impressive 2,028 rental box-
es residing with satisfied cus-
tomers.”

Meanwhile, Mr Paddick said

THE Bahamas Telecommu-

give all its Inagua wireless cus-
tomers .a $50 credit to ensure
that they are able to maintain
cellualr service in the devastat-
ing aftermath of Hurricane Ike.

“As a result of the damage
on the island of Inagua, all land-
line services are presently down.
However, residents are able to
use their GSM and TDMA cell
phones. We know that this time
is critical to the a of

‘ing times,”

Inagua, and we hope that this
$50 credit will assist our cus-
tomers during these challeng-
l BTC’s executive
vice-president, Kirk Griffin said
_yesterday..
| The company deemed this
goodwiti gesture as ‘absolutely
‘necessary’, given that Inagua
residents can only communicate
.with family members and loved
‘ones through their cell phones.
BTC said Hurricane Ike had
.caused major damage to homes,
‘BTC equipment and buildings
‘this weekend.
‘| “The latest reports from our
‘technical teams indicate that a
‘“Troposcatter Dish’ in Inagua

was blown from its pad and
struck the roof of the technical
building.

“This roof was damaged, and
as a result, landline services are

presently inoperable,” BTC

said. :

Landline services’ in
Mayaguana and Acklins were
affected for a short time. How-
ever, service has been fully
restored in these islands.

The decision to provide the

Tribune Business Editor

THE Bahamian economy
could be heading for a period of
stagflation, with inflation and
unemployment increasing at
the same time over a long peri-
od, with the Bahamas Cham-
ber of Commerce’s president
again reiterating yesterday that
the business community was
facing “a perfect storm”.

Dioniso D’ Aguilar, who is
also Superwash’s president, told
Tribune Business: “This eco-
nomic downturn is hitting us
from many directions. You
have a mortgage crisis in the
US, and you energy costs and
costs of living are going
upwards, so businesses are
being hit by the perfect storm.

“You’ve got your costs
increasing, and sales decreas-
ing, because external factors
are causing less tourists to come
here and pump money into the
economy.” ,

Mr D’ Aguilar added: “All
these things are coming togeth-
er in a perfect storm to make it
difficult for businesses to com-
pete. If you’re able to maintain

sales, you’re getting hit hard on
profitability.

“In the local economy, when
sales go down and costs go up,
employees clamour for wage
rises. They can’t get it, so it
leads to increases in internal
theft. They need to survive, and
turn to less scrupulous means to
survive.

“Business is all about cycles,
and we’re in a down cycle right
now. It will probably not
improve for another 12 months,
but I honestly believe that it
will turn round again.”

Anwer Sunderji, Fidelity
Bank (Bahamas) chief execu-
tive, yesterday said it was
“inevitable” that the pain being
felt by the business community
would spread to consumers.

“People will see shorter work
weeks, lower salaries, particu-
larly in the tourism sector,” Mr
Sunderji said.

“This year, eompared to last
year, there has been quite a
substantial and visible fall-off
in credit growth.

- “Consumers are paring back
on consumption, borrowing less
and adjusting their lifestyle to
cope with the economy. I think
people will have to adjust or
otherwise there will be a prob-
lem.”

* Zhivargo Laing, minister of
state for finance, and Simon
Wilson, the ministry’s director
of economic planning, have
flown to a Barbados conference
where they will confirm that
the Bahamas will sign the Eco-
nomic Partnership Agreement
(EPA) with the European
Union (EU).

The conference is being held
to thrash out where all
Caribbean nations stand in
signing on to the EPA, with
advocates such as Trinidad,

tion to raise the Tariff and
Excise duty (tax) rates on hun-

Industry

Bahamian businesses and
industry have long called for
better communication with suc-
cessive administrations, urging
that they communicate their
intentions in advance and con-
sult with them on any legisla-
tive or policy changes that might
impact the conduct of business.

Prime Minister Hubert Ingra-
ham had previously said the
Bahamian construction indus-
try was faring better than Mr
Wrinkle and others believed,

Industrial Corporation wishes. to invite
all persons who submitted Tender Bids
for Security Services for the Soldier
Road Industrial Park to attend the
Tender Opening Ceremony on Friday,
September 12, 2008 at the Corporation’s
Fast Bay Street Office. The ceremony
will commence promptly at 10:00 a.m.

based on the number of build-
ing permits approved by the
Ministry of Works.

The Prime Minister said that
many medium-sized commer-
cial and residential develop-
ments had helped to pick up the
slack from major mixed-use
resort projects that had either
not started or slowed down.

However, in response, Mr
Wrinkle said, that while he did
not have access to all the data at
the Prime Minister’s disposal,
“we see a different picture in
the field. What we hear from
our members, suppliers and the
industry is that the volume of
work is just not there.

“On the commercial side, it’s
very slow. There’s a tremen-

dous amount of vacancies in the
island right now, with retail and
commercial office space.

“The private sector residen-
tial developments are by and
large supporting this industry
at the moment, with the build-
ing of houses in private subdi-
visions.”

But Mr Wrinkle said that giv-
en the economic downturn, and
declining asset/loan quality in
the commercial banking sector,
many institutions had tightened
their lending criteria and made
it more difficult for borrowers
to obtain mortgage financing.

“We’re not getting the same
percentage of homeowners
qualified for mortgages as there
were last year, and that’s show-

ing in the market,” Mr Wrinkle
told Tribune Business. ““There’s
nothing o provide a jumpstart

' for the industry.”

He added that the Govern-
ment was effectively the only
‘developer’ in a position to get
works started through the Lyn-
den Pindling International Air-
port and New Providence Road
Improvement projects, some-
thing that was “desperately
needed”.

Mr Wrinkle added that the
BCA was still waiting f r the
Government to supply 1 with
a list of contact numbers for for-
eign developers in the Bahamas,
so its members would have a
better chance of obtaining work
on their projects. !

ehman tries to soothe

Wall Street with asset sale

@ By JOE BEL BRUNO
AP Business Writer

NEW YORK (AP) — Lehman Broth-
ers, in a desperate bid to survive, announced
plans Wednesday to sell a majority stake in
its prized investment management business
and said a sale of the entire company was
possible.

Lehman, battling the nation’s worst finan-
cial crisis since the Depression, also said it

_would spin off a troubled real estate unit

and slash its dividend. Those moves come as
the nation’s fourth largest investment bank
reported an almost $4 billion third-quarter
loss, boosting its losses so far this year to

. about $¢ 35 billion.

The plan was aimed at raising capital and
regaining investor confidence in the 158-
year-old firm.

It was also seen as a reconstruction of
Lehman Brothers, which has been devas-
tated as the housing slump evolved into a
global credit crunch in the past year. Pres-
sure has been mounting on Chief Executive
Richard Fuld to save the firm from the
same fate that felled rival Bear Stearns Cos.

Fuld; the longest serving CEO on Wall
Street, rescued Lehman Brothers from the
fallout of the Russian credit crisis and col-
lapse of Long-Term Capital Management
hedge fund in the late-90s. This time, he’s
hopeful the actions will “de-risk and resize”
the company but concedes the only com-
pany he’s ever worked for could be sold

entirely.

“Tftanybody came with an attractive

proposition that was compelling for share- ,

holder ‘value, it would be brought to the
board, discussed with the board, and eval-
uated,” Fuld told investors on a conference
call. “We remain committed to examining
all strategic alternatives to maximize share-
holder value.”

The company said it will auction a 55 per
cent stake of the investment management
business, which includes fund manager Neu-
berger Berman that it bought in 2003. Fuld
said the firm was in late-stage talks with
potential buyers for the business, which
analysts value at up to $10 billion for the
entire business. °

Lehman will also spin off $25 billion to
$30 billion of commercial real estate invest-
ments into a separate publicly traded com-

gi iny, to be called Real Estate Inyestments

the new company.

Investors got more bad news after the
company slashed its dividend to 5 cents per
share from 68 cents per share in a move
that will save an estimated $450 million a
year.

The stock has plunged more than 80 per
cent this year to lows not seen in more than
a decade. It rose. 12 cents to $7.91 in late
morning trading Wednesday after falling
as low as $7.40 earlier in the session.
Lehman shares pluazed 45 per cent on
Tuesday.

Wall Street remains skittish about finan-
cial stocks since the. near-collapse of Bear
Stearns in March. Like other investment
banks, Lehman has been hit hard by dete-
rioration in the credit and mortgage markets
since the middle of 2007. Global banks have
so far lost more than $300 billion from mort-
gage-backed securities and other risky
investments.

The moyes are intended to prove to Wall
Street that the embattled bank has enough

liquidity to survive. But, there still remains |

uncertainty among analysts if the strategy
will work in the end.

__ If Lehman moves into the future without *
its investment management business, issues

regarding its future and sustainability as a
pure-play investment bank arise,” said

Cubillas Ding, a senior analyst with Boston-
based financial research and consulting firm
Celent. “Finding stable funding sources,
especially when the markets are not looking
to recover in the short-term, is an issue that
senior management needs to provide a com-
pelling solution for.”

Dirig, and other analysts, also points out
that Lehman still has exposure to a high
concentration of risk to real estate and relat-
ed investments. Lehman’s quarterly loss
includes gross write-downs of $5.3 billion on

residential mortgages and $1.7 billion on

commercial real.estate positions.

The results reflect a continued decline in
Lehman’s portfolio — in the second quarter
the company lost $2.8 billion for the period.
It earned $887 million in the third quarter a
year ago.

Lehman said it has reduced its residential

mortgage exposure by 31 per cent to $17.2.

billion, and expects its sale of $4 billion of its

UK residential mortgage portfolio to Black-

Rock. Financial Management Inc. to. be.

completed within the next few weeks.
Lehman also reduced its commercial real
estate exposure by 18 per cent in the third
quarter to $32.6 billion from $39.8 billion.
The results were released earnings a week
earlier than expected after negotiations

with Korea Development Bank about a -

capital infusion ended with no deal. That
places more pressure on Lehman to sell its
investment management business quickly.
Lehman has approached a broad range of
possible investors, including banks in Korea
and Japan. Private-equity firms in the US

have also been contacted about investing in .

the investment-management business.

Besides Neuberger Berman, the business
also includes everything from private client
services to private equity components.
There is also ‘talk that Neuberger’s man-
agement might get an opportunity to buy
back all or part of the company.

Once the biggest US underwriter of mort-

gage-backed securities, concerns about ~

Lehman began to increase after Bear
Stearns nearly collapsed in March. Bear,
once the fifth-largest US. investment bank,
avoided bankruptcy by selling itself to
JPMorgan Chase & Co.

After posting a surprise $2.8 billion loss
during the second quarter, Lehman was

' scrutinized by banks and customers about

liquidity issues, even though the company
has raised $14 billion of capital since last
year. The company also brought on new
top management t0 help boost risk man-
agement.

15% of commercial loans now in default

FROM page 1B

2007. This means that, in
increasing to $147 million, the
amount of all commercial loans
that are delinquent has
increased by 56.3 per cent -
jumping from $94 million to
$147 million - in some seven
months.

In percentage terms, that is a

rise of 5.3 per cent - going from
9.4 per cent to 14.7 per cent.

Having 14.7 per cent of total
loans in default would be
regarded as a material issue on
most individual banks’ balance
sheets, but this is a sector issue
not confined to just one insti-
tution.

In addition, Mr Sunderji said
that just over half the banking
sector’s delinquent commercial

PRACT eA

LEGAL NOTICE

International Business Companies Act _
(N*°45 of 2000)

loans - some $75 million - were
non-performing, meaning they

were 90 days or more past due. _

Describing “a very sharp
deterioration in commercial
loans”, Mr Sunderji told Tri-
bune Business: “Year-to-date,
the credit quality of commer-
cial loans has deteriorated
sharply, even though the actual
loan portfolio size has remained
at the same magnitude.

“It should be concerning to
commercial banks, definitely. I
don’t think the delinquency is
spread equally.”

Mr Sunderji said Bahamian
commercial banks collectively
had more than $300 million in

Joans that were non-perform-

ing - 90 days or more past due.
This was split into $100 million
of consumer loans, $130 million
worth or mortgages, and $75
million in commercial loans.
That totals some $305 million
worth of non-performing loans,
and Mr Sunderji said this fig-
ure had increased by $50 mil-
lion since year-end 2007.
Putting the. commercial loan
situation in context, Mr Sun-

derji said that out of $2.2 bil-
lion in outstanding consumer
loans as at July 31, 2008, some
$197 million or 14 per cent were
delinquent or more than 30 days
past due.

By way of comparison, as at
December 31, 2007, the com-
mercial banking sector had
extended $2 billion worth of
consumer loans, and some $172
million were delinquent then.

“From a percentage point of
view, it’s quite dramatic, and in
dollar terms the delinquency for
consumer loans grew by $24
million for consumer loans, and
grew by $52 for commercial
loans” since year-end 2007,” Mr
Sunderji said.

He added: “I don’t think
we’ve seen the worst yet. Clear-
ly, there’s a downturn in busi-
ness everywhere.

“But we will come out of this,
whether it’s 12 months or 18
months. The economy will
revive. It’s ‘a natural economic
cycle.”

Non-performing loans in the
Bahamian commercial banking
sector increased by $15 million

during July 2008, with delin-
quent loans growing by $70.1
million to hit the $600 million
mark, providing further evi-
dence of an increasing inability
among Bahamian businesses
and consumers to meet debt
repayments.

The Central Bank of the
Bahamas’ report on monthly
economic developments for July
2008 continued to show a dete-
riorating economic climate, with
the brunt chiefly being born by
the business sector.

For the period January-July
2008, delinquent commercial
loans - meaning those loans 31-
90 days past due - had almost

tives, growing from $52.6 mil-
lion to $147 million.

Commenting on the Central

Bank report, Ross McDonald,
the Bahamas-based Caribbean
head: for Royal Bank of Cana-
da, said: “Is it just the confir-
mation that the economy is
slowing, and times are more dif-
ficult for business people and
consumers? Yes, there’s the
confirmation. The consumer
and mortgage numbers are
trending the same way.

“We're just getting confirma-
tion of a trend that is not posi-
tive. We’re always sad to see it
happen, but we’re not surprised.
It’s disappointing, but hopeful-
ly things will get better.

“It is a cycle. We’ve had a
good cycle, and the good busi-
nesses will have ‘built up
reserves and the smart con-
sumers will have put away mon-
ey for a rainy day.”

16 per cent, which it attributed
to declines at Nassau/ Paradise

Regardless of port of entry
(first, second or third port of

received fewer cruise passen-
gers in the month of June 2008

than in the same period of 2007,
‘the Ministry of Tourism indi-

cated.

It attributed the declines to
the fact that some cruise lines
made less calls on Nassau/ Par-

fewer passengers to the island as
a first port of call, preferring
instead to use their private
islands. |

increased tremendously the
amount of passengers to the
Out Islands (Half Moon Cay)
as a first port of entry.

Grand Bahama saw for the
first time an increase - 2 per
cent - in cruise arrivals primar-
ily because of increased num-
bers of passengers traveling on
the Discovery Cruise Line.

This was not, however,
enough to offset the air arrival
decrease and arrivals on the
whole were down to that island,
the ministry reported.

The Out Islands received 19

Princess-Cay, which normal-
ly closes at the end of June, .

any cruise passengers after May

arrivals to Eleuthera declined
tremendously.

The Princess ships that nor-
mally went to Princess Cay were

cruise arrivals to the Out Islands

Six ways to save on prescription drugs

@ By CANDICE CHOI
AP Business Writer

NEW YORK (AP) — In
addition to changing leaves, for
many of us, fall means we’re
handed a packet of materials
and asked to ponder our med-
ical benefits as part of open
enrollment season.

So as you review your health
care budget, remember that
you may be able to save big on
prescription drugs. At two
pharmacies just a mile apart,
for example, the price of the
same medication can differ
dramatically.

That’s why doing your
homework before heading to
the drug store is just one way
to cut costs on prescription
drugs. .

As the price of prescription
drugs rises at a steady clip,
here are six tips to keep in
mind.

1. USE GENERIC
MEDICATIONS

The easiest way to cut down
on the cost of drugs is to ask
for yout prescription to be
filled with a generic version.
Despite their no-frills sound,
generic drugs are no less effec-
tive, so you should always find
out if this lower-cost option is
available.

And finding a generic alter-
native shouldn’t be tough;
generics are available for more
than three-quarters of the
11,000 federally approved

drugs on the market, according»

to the Generic Pharmacetitical
Association. Last year, generic
drugs accounted for 65 per
cent of all filled prescriptions,
up from 56 per cent in 2005.

Their growing popularity
comes as the cost prescription
drugs continues to climb. Drug
makers increased their prices
last year by an average.of 7.4
per cent, more than double the
rate of inflation, for brand-
name medicines most com-
monly prescribed to the elder-
ly, according to a study by
AARP.

2. FIND A LOWER-COST

- OPTION

Even if a generic is not avail-
able, you may still be able to”

’ find a cheaper alternative. For

example, someone with heart-
burn could save more than
$100'a month by taking over-




| BED BATH &

the-counter Prilosec instead of
Nexium, said Gail Shearer,
director of Consumer Reports
Best Buy Drugs.

Before changing medica-,
tions, of course, people should
talk to their doctors about any
impact a switch might have on
their condition.

“It’s a starting point to open
a conversation with your doc-
tor or nurse about your
options,” Shearer said. You
can find additional guidance on
lower-cost options for a range
of conditions at www.CRBest-

‘ BuyDrugs.com.

3. SHOP AROUND

Call ahead to nearby phar-
macies to get price quotes
before heading out - especially
if you’re buying a brand-name

. drug.

Several states — among them
Michigan, New Jersey and
New York — offer government-
sponsored Web sites that allow
consumers to browse prices at
area drug stores: For instance,
in New York, the health
department’s drug comparison
site,
http: //rx.nyhealth. gov/pdpw, is
updated every Monday, and
consumers can search by zip
code,

A tecent search for the sleep
aid Ambien in New York City
turned up options including
$140 for a 30-day supply at one
Walgreens and $171 at a Rite
Aid pharmacy just a mile away.

State sites are typically based

on Medicaid prices, but cheap- -

er prices for Medicaid recipi-
ents likely mean lower costs
for non-Medicaid customers
too.

Don’t overlook traditional
retailers such as Target Corp.
and Wal-Mart Stores Inc.,
which both offer $4 prescrip-
tion programs. Target offers
hundreds of generics at $4 for a
30-day supply, $10 for a 90-day
supply.

Wal-Mart’s programme fol-
lows the same pricing, but also
includes some brand-name and
over-the-counter drugs.

Other chains, including
Kroger Co. and Safeway Inc.,
have rolled out similar pro-
grammes. oe

4. ORDER BY MAIL

accustomed to renting movies
by mail. Your health is certain-

)

_ ly more significant, but if you

haven’t tried it you should‘also
look into cutting costs by filling ©
prescriptions by mail. :
If you’re on a daily medica- , ,
tion you’ll certainly want to
investigate. It’s likely that the *

‘pharmacy programme of your

benefits package will offer 90° .
day supplies at discounted
prices, said Charlés Cote,
spokesman for the Pharmaceu- "
tical Care MaAgsemeny ASso- :
ciation.

Ordering prescription drugs.
through the mail is convenient
and could save gas money too, oh
Cote said. ‘

5. RESEARCH STATE’
DISCOUNT .
PROGRAMMES

For those with6ut insurance,
at least 19 states now have pre-.
scription drug discount pre- -
grammes, according to the

National Association of State

Legislatures. These pro-

grammes may be helpful if

you’re recently unemployed,
find your COBRA coverage
ending, or otherwise don’t :

have prescription orus. cover-" .

age.

The discounts and terms fae
eligibility vary, but Arizona,

Oregon, Washington state, and

. Wisconsin have no age or .

income requirements to enroll:

6. BEWARE OF -° .’
FREEBIES, DISCOUNT
PROGRAMMES -

Lastly, proceed carefully

before signing up for commer- -

- cial discount programmes,

coupons or drug freebies.
Upon closer inspection you,
may find that they are backed
by pharmaceutical companies,
and critics say they often steer
consumers toward name-brand
‘drugs.

The problem is that once the
free samples or discount runs
out, users may feel they need
to continue on the same med-
ication — but now at full cost.

Such discount programmes ..
often provide a few generic
options, but it’s unlikely to be
an extensive list.

“Go in with your eyes open,”
said Consumer-Reports’ Shear-
er.

“They sound appealing, but
in many cases, people may save
more money if they just take
the time to go through their
different options.”

Democrats eye offshore drilling - with strings

@ By H JOSEF HEBERT
Associated Press Writer

WASHINGTON (AP) —
With public opinion shifting
toward offshore drilling,
Democrats are looking to
defuse the volatile election issue
by allowing oil companies for
the first time to explore off the
Atlantic and Gulf coasts from
Virginia to Florida — but only
if they foot the bill for new
alternative energy programmes.

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi,
who not long ago staunchly
opposed lifting any of the off-
shore drilling bans, said Tues-

day she now supports an energy
package that would including
drilling in federal waters off the
southeastern coast. She is plan-
ning a vote that could come as
early as Friday.

“If they (the oil companies)
want to drill offshore, we’ll say
OK,” Pelosi told reporters. But
she said the bill also will require
oil companies to give up $13 bil-
lion in tax breaks and agree to
pay billions of dollars in back
royalties that were avoided
because of an Interior Depart-
ment contracting error in deep-
water drilling leases in the late
1990s.

group known as the “Gang of

decades because of environ-

coastal buffer.

Senate Majority Leader Har-
ry Reid reiterated Tuesday his
intention to take up the drilling
measures next week.

Republicans in both the Sen-

_ate and House, meanwhile, are

pushing for broader drilling.

House Republican leader
John Boehner of Ohio, called
Pelosi’s proposal “just more of
the same. It leaves most Amer-
ican energy under lock and key
when we should be doing every-
thing possible to expand energy
production.”

Off-limits areas of the Outer
Continental Shelf on both
coasts are believed to have at
least 18 billion barrels of oil,
but more than half of the
reserve is found off the West
Coast, mainly off California,
according to the Interior
Department. Mid-Atlantic
waters, however, are believed
to have large reserves of natur-
al gas as well as some oil.

Offshore drilling has gained
political momentum since GOP
presidential nominee John
McCain made it a central part
of his energy plan. At the just-
concluded GOP convention,
McCain vowed to push for end-
ing the drilling moratoria as
soon as possible, prompting del-
egates to change, “drill, baby

drill.” Sensing a shift in public
sentiment toward more domes-
tic energy development, Demo-
cratic presidential nominee
Barack Obama has also said he
is open to limited expansion of
offshore drilling.

Congressional Republicans
want to lift all of the drilling
bans that cover the Outer Con-
tinental Shelf waters 50 miles
from shore from New England
to Washington states. Oil and
gas drilling has been allowed
for decades in the western Gulf
of Mexico where US offshore
energy production has concen-
trated.

But Republican leaders are
adamantly opposed to addi-
tional taxes on oil companies.
They repeatedly have blocked
proposals that would rescind oil
industry. tax breaks, arguing that

would inhibit domestic oil pro-
duction.

A possible. compromise
worked out in the Senate by a
group headed by Democratic
Senator Kent Conrad of North
Dakota and Republican Sen.
Saxby Chambliss of Georgia —
the Gang of Ten as it is dubbed
— calls for both limited offshore
drilling and taxing Big Oil, while
funneling billions of dollars into
renewable energy.

Republican leaders have not
embraced the compromise.

“It’s the only (approach) that
has a realistic chance of getting
60 votes,” said Senator John
Thune, R-SD, one of the “Gang
of Ten”, making clear that no
matter that whatever the energy
plan, it will need that much sup-
port to overcome a certain Sen-
ate filibuster.

THE TRIBUNE

@ By BRIAN SKOLOFF
Associated Press Writer

WEST PALM BEACH,
Florida (AP) — A gigantic land
deal for a territory larger than
the city of Chicago, intended to
help restore the dying Ever-
glades, has been delayed as both
sides work out details of the
proposal for the state to buy
some 300 square miles from US
Sugar Corporation, officials said
Wednesday.

Declaring the proposal “as
monumental as the creation of
our nation’s first national park,”
Republican Governor Charlie
Crist made the announcement
about the deal in June while
standing in the Everglades.

The initial announcement
said the state would buy some
300 square miles of US Sugar’s
holdings in the Everglades
south of Lake Okeechobee,
including its cane fields, mill,
refining facilities, citrus groves,
and railroad line.

US Sugar would be allowed
to farm the 187,000 acres for six
more years, after which it would

’ go out of business, leaving some

1,700 workers unemployed.

The state would then protect
the land from development,
which has been encroaching on
the Everglades for decades.

Officials said in June they
planned to sign a contract on
the deal by November.

It likely won’t happen now

until sometime in 2009, accord-
ing to officials with the South
Florida Water Management
District, which oversees Ever-
glades restoration for the state.

The district had planned to
borrow the money through
bonds for the deal and pay off
the debt with property taxes
from its 16 county region
stretching from Orlando to the
Keys.

Officials now say they are
hoping to negotiate simultane-
ous. sales of some of US, Sug-
ar’s assets, such as its mill and
railroad, before completing the
sale. They also say they are
seeking partners in the pur-
chase.

“The word is out on the street

’ and they know that we will not

be holding onto these assets,”
Ruth Clements, the district’s
director of land acquisition, told
board members on Wednesday:
State officials have said they

also planned to build a network .

of reservoirs and marshes on
the land to filter water flowing
into the Everglades and help
restore the River of Grass to a
cleaner, more natural state.
For generations, farming and
development have blocked the
natural flow of water and
allowed fertilizers and other
pollutants to spill into the wet-

lands, slowly killing the ecosys- _

tem. :
But just how long it will take
to seal the deal remains unclear.

THURSDAY, SEPTEMBER 11, 2008, PAGE 158

Large Everglades land deal delayed |

“The deal would not end sugar
production in the Everglades.
Some 300,000 acres of land, or
close to 500 square miles, used .
by other companies would
remain in production.

Still, many residents in the
region around US Sugar’s land,
communities that have relied
on the company as an econom-
ic engine for decades, fear its
shutdown will ruin their liveli-

hoods. “I’m a lifer here, and .

would like to be a real lifer, but
I’m concerned that I may be.
displaced by all of this,” said
attorney Melanie McGahee,
from Clewiston, where US Sug-

ar is based. “We're sitting out
here as business owners and |



and not knowing what our
future holds.”

McGahee said she is con-
cerned that many people,

_ including environmentatists who

have hailed this deal as a huge
step forward for the Everglades,
will simply see the people of
Clewiston “as a small price to

pay.”

“But we are 6,000 families out

here,” she said.

The multibillion Everglades
restoration effort, bogged down
for years by bureaucracy, fund-
ing shortfalls and missteps, is
the largest of its kind in the
world. It is aimed at undoing of
rerouting decades of flood-con-
trol projects that were built to

THE TRIBUNE





British PM

@ By DAVID STRINGER
Associated Press Writer

LONDON (AP) — British
Prime Minister Gordon Brown
yesterday denied he was
endorsing Barack Obama,
despite praising the Democra-
tic presidential candidate in a
published commentary.

In the commentary pub-
lished Wednesday, Brown
praised Obama’s proposals for
a mortgage foreclosure pre-
vention fund and said he
believed Democrats offered
stronger policies for a difficult
economy.

“In the electrifying US pres-
idential campaign, it is the
Democrats who are generat-
ing the ideas to help people
through more difficult times,”
Brown wrote in Parliamentary
Monitor magazine, a monthly
publication that covers parlia-
mentary and government
issues.

“To help prevent people
from losing their home, Barack
Obama has proposed a fore-
closure prevention fund to
increase emergency pre-fore-
closure counseling, and help
families facing repossession.”

Brown’s Labour Party is tra-
‘ditionally allied to Obama’s
Democrats — but under inter-
national conventions, foreign
leaders refrain from interven-
ing in ballots overseas.

Brown later denied he had
breached protocol and said he
was not endorsing anyone.

“T am very proud to know
both Senator (John) McCain
and Senator Obama and I
leave that decision rightly with
the American people,” Brown
said at a news.conference with
Italica Premier Silvio Berlus-
cio.

The Italian leader said Euro-
peans would work in coopera-
tion with whichever candidate
becomes the next US presi-
dent.

“It would be totally absurd

Downing Street in London to receive Italian Prime Minister Silvio

Berlusconi on Wednesday...

to expose ourselves by saying
we prefer someone over some-
one else,” Berlusconi said.

Brown did not comment on
the content of his article at the
news conference. -

In meetings with both Oba-
ma and McCain, Brown has
gone to great lengths to appear
impartial.

During separate visits to
London by the candidates,
Brown refused to greet the
men on the doorstep of his
official residence — an honour
reserved only for elected heads
of government.

But Britain’s main opposi-
tion Conservative Party said
Brown was guilty of a serious
gaffe.

“A responsible British prime
minister needs to be ready to
work with either presidential
candidate after the US elec-
tion, and should neither take

sides nor be seen to be taking
sides,” said Conservative law-
maker William Hague, a for-
mer leader of the party.

McCain’s' spokesman
Michael Goldfarb dismissed
the apparent backing for Oba-
ma in a Web posting titled
“The Coveted Gordon Brown
Endorsement.”

He claimed that in praising
Obama’s housing strategy,
Brown had in fact highlighted
a policy that the Democratic
Party candidate appeared to
have recently dropped.

Jason Furman, Obama’s
economic policy director, told
the AP on Wednesday that the
foreclosure relief fund had not
been shelved.

“It is still an Obama pro-
posal and still on our Web
site,” .said Furman. He
declined to comment on
Brown’s praise. .

US budget deficit
praises Obama _ closing on $500bn

@ By ANDREW TAYLOR
Associated Press Writer

WASHINGTON (AP) —
Amid fresh predictions that

. the economic slump will con-

tinue into next year, Democ-
rats on Tuesday renewed a
promise to try.to advance a
heavy-spending economic
stimulus plan before Election
Day. ,

The effort, however, is
infused with election-year pol-
itics and was rejected by the
White House, which believes
it to be wasteful and unpro-
ductive. ;

The still-emerging Democ-
ratic plan would pile more
than $50 billion worth of new
spending on roads, heating’
subsidies, aid to state govern-
ments and a further extension
of unemployment benefits
onto a deficit for next year
that is already likely to near
$500 billion. Loan guarantees
for the troubled auto industry

‘are also on the table.

“I would be surprised to see
a package that would be less
than, you know, $50 billion to’
$75: billion,” said Senator
Charles Schumer, D-N.Y.

Unlike a collaborative effort

‘early this year to enact tax

rebates for consumers and tax
breaks for business, there’s
been virtually no good-faith
negotiation between Democ-
rats controlling Congress and
the White House over the

contours of a possible compro-

mise.

Instead, the Democratic. ,
effort appears aimed in large
part in casting Republicans —
and GOP presidential nomi-
nee John McCain — as out of
touch on the economy.

“Middle class families are
not fools. They know that the
economy is not strong,”
Schumer said.'“But apparently
the president, his Republican
allies in Congress, and John
McCain do not.”

At the same time, new

MORTGAGES * MUTUAL FUNDS « LIFE INSURANCE
HEALTH INSURANCE * ANNUITIES & PENSION PLANS
FINANCIAL PLANNING & INVESTMENTS

deficit and economic estimates
released by the Congressional
Budget Office on Tuesday
brought fresh evidence of the
nation’s worsening fiscal pic-
ture and predictions of an
economy that could slide into
recession.

The federal government will
run a near-record deficit of
$407 billion this year, CBO
said, with the deficit for 2009
reaching $438 billion — and
could go even higher as the
government takes over mort-
gage giants Fannie Mae and
Freddie Mac and if Congress,
as expected, devotes more
than $60 billion to fix the
alternative minimum tax to
make sure more and more
middle class families aren’t hit

by it.

The worsening deficit is
largely due to continuing
weakness in the economy,

_ high energy and food prices,

and the slump in the housing
and financial markets, CBO
said. And the economy could
still slide into a recession,
according to the forecast.

“The economy is likely to
experience at least several
more months of very slow. -
growth,” the CBO report said.
“Whether this period will ulti-
mately be designated a reces-
sion or not is still uncertain,
but the increase in the unem-
ployment rate and the pace of
economic growth are similar
to conditions during previous
periods of mild recession.”

The CBO predicts that the
economy will grow 1.5 per
cent this year in real terms and
slip to just 1.1 per cent growth
in 2009.

CBO’s gloomy outlook was

_seconded by Harvard Univer-

sity economist Lawrence Sum-
mers and Allen Sinai, chief
economist for Decision Eco-
nomics, Inc., in testimony
before the House Budget
Committee.

““Thestate of the US econo-
my is a recession or recession-

like conditions,” Sinai said,
adding that boosts in inflation
could herald the return of the
so-called stagflation experi-
enced in the late-1970s and
early 1980s.

Summers, a former secre-
tary of Treasury in the Clinton
administration, backed the
idea of a second stimulus bill

. following the outlines pro-

posed by Democratic leaders:
aid to states; home heating
subsidies; food stamp., infra-
structure projects and unem-
ployment benefits.

In all likelihood, Summers
said, the US economy is “a

“year or so away froma

resumption of strong econom-
ic growth.”

The White House and con-
gressional Republicans are
resisting the idea of a new
stimulus bill and instead want
other legislation, including an
energy bill that would open
the Outer continental shelf to
oil and gas drilling and free
trade agreements with Pana-
ma, Colombia and South
Korea, to help the economy.

“We’re not talking about a
stimulus package,” White
House Press Secretary Dana
Perino told reporters.

It’s not clear that Democ-
rats will even be.able to pass a
stimulus bill. Moderate “Blue
Dog” Democrats recoiled at
the new deficit figures and
have vowed that any new
steps to stimulate the econo-
my must not add to the red
ink.

_. Béyond the bleak short-
term prospects for the Democ-
rats’ stimulus bill, the new
deficit numbers promise to
force the next president,
whether it’s Democrat Barack
Obama or GOP nominee John
McCain, to scale back agenda
items like new tax cuts.

The agency’s latest estimate
of total appropriations since
2001 to fight terrorism and for
operations in Iraq and.
Afghanistan is $858 billion.

THE TRIBUNE OBITUARIES THURSDAY, SEPTEMBER 11, 2008, PAGE 23

Qhiuay

MRS Esther Gertrude Ward Barnett, 75, of Opa-locka, Florida, daughter of one of the early
founders of the Seventh-Day Adventist Church in the Bahamas, and a former darkroom
technician with The Tribune and the Nassau Guardian, died on September 3 at Jackson
Memorial Hospital in Miami. A devastating cranial aneurysm left her in a coma from which
she never recovered. §

Known as “Mammy” to her many children, grandchildren, nieces and nephews, Mrs Barnett
grew up serving guests at her family home, including Bahamian dignitaries, Seventh-Day
Adventist pastors, European and American tourists, and poor and needy islanders. Born on
November 9, 1932, in the quiet settlement of Cockburn Town, San Salvador, Mrs Barnett
- was the daughter of the late Pastor Paul and Mother Hilda Ward. They named their daughter
“Esther” after the courageous and righteous Queen Esther in the Bible. The biblical Esther,
whose name means “star”, was a beautiful and graceful queen who was able to save her
people from destruction through her obedience to the will of God. “Mammy” grew up peacefully
and happily with her siblings in a,God-loving home. She was the eleventh of 14 children.
Her parents raised their children with a healthy dose of discipline and love. Her mother's
child rearing mottowas the biblical, “spare the rod and spoil the child.” On the other hand,
her father always wisely said: “The. child has an intellect. Talk to the child and she'll understand
right from wrong.” It is said that her mother rarely had to beat her because, like her biblical
namesake, she was such an obedient child. At the age of 14 or so, she was appointed teacher
_ of the one-room schoolhouse in San Salvador. She taught all children on the island, no matter
if they were oider or younger than she was. Because she had to prepare lessons for her
students and grade papers, her mother said she did not have to participate. any longer in
the daily household responsibilities of cooking, feeding the chickens and goats, planting
crops in the field, drawing water from the well, and sweeping the large yard. Mrs Barnett’s
father, the Rev Paul Ward; was one of the early founders of the Seventh-Day Adventist Church
in the Bahamas.When Mrs Barnett was about 16, her parents allowed her to leave the small
island of San Salvador and go to Nassau t as a nurse at Princess Margaret Hospital.
Later, she became a photographer. She w eventually become the most experienced
woman in photographic development in the. Bahamas, enabling her to become one of the
leading darkroom technicians at the nation’s two largest and competing newspapers, The
Tribune and The Nassau Guardian. “Queen Esther was quite a renaissance woman,” said one of Mrs Barnett’s Gatignters:
Adeyela Bennett, 45, of Pembroke Pines, Florida. “Our home was the hang-out for young leaders in the Progressive Liber:
Party (PLP) movement.” Eventually, the Bahamas gained Independence from British tule on oO 10,.1973.

In 1968, when it was not fashionable for the races to mix, ‘Mrs Barnett met her husband, a British expatriate,

ALL the great religions including
Buddhism, Islam, Christianity and
Judaism are rich with wisdom about
the human condition. They guide and
comfort us in the quest for self fulfill-
ment - in seeking satisfaction in our
work, joy and contentment in life with
the greatest urge to experience perfect
love. .

The poet, who wrote the creation
story in Genesis, portrays the first intu-

not good to be alone _— we yearn to
become one with someone else, love is
the fundamental human longing. God
makes a wonderful home for Adam in

the Garden of Eden but just as the

plants need soil to grow, a human
needs a relationship.

When Adam awakens and sees Eve
it is love at first sight and he sings a
love song, "This one at last is the bone

wholeness? Are you striving for an A

obtain it for achievement?

School: I would venture to say that
God’s vision for the school is that it
is an institution that reinforces the
lessons learnt at home and adds
other experiences necessary for
nation building. Just as the child’s
first year of development sees the
greatest physical changes (from
prone to running), the school years
take the child from alphabet to col-
lege entrance.

While a range of subjects are stud-
ied, emotional and hormonal

changes have to be mastered, friend-
ships cultivated, and life questions of
origin, identity, and future contribu-
tions have to be answered to some
degree. Teachers, therefore, serve as

each other. ,

And as every young couple finds,
‘settling down' is unsettling — the rela~

uncomfortable and painful. This is
where real intimacy begins and love
becomes intentional. Now the couple
finds that love has a. dynamic range
between spontaneity and boredom,
empathy -and selfishness, acceptance
and rejection and the relationship
swings from solid to fragile and hope-

a relationship, especially marriage is a
lot of work. It is certainly a learning
experience about yourself and your
partner — it seems to be a never ending
dance between loneliness and connec-

-and in modern times, "should I stay or

The most common problems faced in
any relationship are financial, sexual,
interference by relatives or friends and
poor communication. These problems
are compounded by criticism, con-

The marriage vows encapsulate the
yearning for. love in any relationship:
"To have and to hold, from this day
forward, for better for worse, for rich-
er for poorer, in sickness and in health,
to love and to cherish, till death us do

love is relevant:

Love is patient, love is kind. It does
not envy, it does not boast, it is not
proud. It is not rude, it is not self-seek-
ing, it is not easily angered, it keeps no

group, gathered their congrega-
tions and met at the Pastel

Monday to offer prayers and
praise of thanks for the sparing of
life during the deadly double hur-

President of Pastors in Prayer

several other items were discussed
and prayers were offered for the
nation, children and Pastel
Gardens community, people must

offer thanks to God for safety

during the storms.

Pastor Kathleen Butler celebrates
her Srd pastoral anniversary

MEMBERS of Rival Time
Highway Church of God, Bullocks
Harbour, Berry Islands, would like
to extend their sincere thanks and
appreciation to their pastor,
Kathleen Butler, who has been a
pillar of strength in the community
and in the church.

Called to mission and ministry,
Pastor Butler has been used by
God in a mighty way, and is known
as a minister of the gospel who
preaches the word of God from her
heart.

As friends and relatives pray her
strength in the Lord, understanding
that the road may get rough some-
times, they’ nevertheless believe
strongly that God will keep Pastor
Butler "keeping on".

Also sending their heartfelt con-

gratulations is. Mother Agnes
Knowles, all of her sisters, broth-
ers, aunts, uncles, grandchildren,



and Ike passed over the region,
some 300 people died in Haiti
alone. Some of the images that
have been sent over the Internet
and television are simply heart
wrenching, especially the scene in
a muddy morgue where a preg-
nant woman had her little girl still
tight in her arms - both of them
dead.

“We are a low-lying nation of
islands and when we look at some-
thing like that or the devastation

after Hurricane Katrina, we have .

no choice but to thank God for his

grace and goodness because we

only lost buildings and those can
be repaired or rebuilt. Life, on the

_ other hand, can not.”

Now is the time for Bahamians
to be their brothers' keeper, added
the pastors, and pour out support
through prayer and through
donating much needed necessities.

“In order for the Salvation
Army, NEMA and the Red Cross

to do what they do, we need to be
better in terms of donating
because if we were hit, we'd
expect prompt aid,” they said.
“That's why, we are encouraging
our members to each bring an
item so that we can donate.a large
portion of these items to such
organisations to distribute them as
necessary. Whatever we don't dis-
tribute, we will add to our store-
house to help those who need help
in hard times. ;

"A small tin of something or
pack of noodles may seem like a
pauper’ s meal to some but to oth-
ers it's a three-course meal, so let
us give of ourselves toward each
other.”

Living together

For the earnest expectation of the
creature waiteth for the manifestation of
the sons of God. Romans 8:19

I WAS at the laundry mat recently,
doing laundry of course and minding
my own business, and this man walks
up to me jand says, "Miss, could I ask
you a question?"

"Sure!" I said.

"From the time Adam and Eve was
living and died, do you know how
many people died since then?
Countless. They (Adam and Eve) met
the world here and they left it here.
We meet the world here and we will
leave it here. Why we all can't live
good with each other?"

True, there are many answers to that
question, but let me tell you my
answer. Everyone believes that the
world is theirs to conquer. We...just



like Adam and Eve...met this world
here and will leave it here.

So, since all of us are sharing the
same world, I don't understand why
we all can't live good with each other.
This man had a valid point. I explained
to the gentleman that we let our flesh -
that the bible says, "no good thing
dwells in" - come in our way.

Whether we want to face it or not no
individual is an island. This one killing
that one, this one stealing from the
next. You can't even say anything to
the children these days. Yesterday it
used to take a village to raise a child,

but these days it requires the will of a
nation. We all need each other and the
sooner we realise that- this life will be
better for all of us. ;

The bible says that creation groans
for the manifestation of the sons of
God. All that God has created is wait-
ing for mankind to take on the mind of
Christ - then we would live as God
would have us to. It is with that mind
we would always, be aware that we are
our brother's keeper.

I would never intentionally hurt a
brother or sister of mine, but would
always look out for their welfare. The

. good things that I want for my family,

I would want for other people. But as
long as we feel, “every man for himself
and God for us all", we will continue
to live like my grandmother used to
say when my sisters and I would fight,
"like cats and dogs."

I have come to realise that it is not-

hard to be nice or kind to people.
Even though we feel at times that
some people make it impossible to
love them, what I have learned is that
you have to meet some persons
halfway. i

There is an individual in my, family
who is, less than kind I'll say, for lack
of a better word. I finally understand
that this person has to be met-halfway.
I will have to be the one to call:and say,
"how you doing to day?" Honestly,
that won't take anything off of me.
Now if I let pride get in the way...it will
never happen.

Whether we want to admit it or not
we all live in a world that we have to
share, so why not do it peaceably with
one another.

Freeport Bible Church dedicates new edifice

IN the midst of Grand Bahama
being in hurricane mode with the
passing of Tropical Storm Hanna and
the threat posed by Hurricane Ike,
this past Saturday, September 6, a
grand celebration took place at a
newly constructed, magnificent edi-
fice on John Tinker Road, Freeport.

The pastor, officers, members, fol-
lowers and friends of Freeport Bible
Church (FBC) were “Realizing the
Dream Together” as they held the
blessing and ribbon-cutting ceremony
of their new church building.

Hundreds of well-wishers, including
local members of parliament and cler-
gymen, packed the five hundred seat
building, with additional chairs having
to be brought in. The whole atmos-
phere was festive, warm, and welcom-
ing; from the friendly parking atten-
dants, to the greeters at the entrance
of the building and the foyer, to the
ushers on the inside. People in
Freeport Bible shirts of various
colours, representing the different
committees, excitedly moved around
ensuring that everything was in order.
The décor of the building was attrac-
tively yet modestly done not to take
away from the already beautifully
sculptured architecture of the building
itself.

The service was indeed one worthy
of a celebration of thanksgiving hon-
ouring God; from the melodious voic-
es of the praise and worship team, the
choirs and the soloists to the inspira-
tional message delivered by guest
speaker Dr Evan Burrows, senior pas-
tor at First Baptist Church of College
Hill, Tampa, Florida.



Pastor Burrows played an integral
part in the early years of FBC where
he served as assistant pastor. In his
message, while praising the pastor and
members of FBC for being able to
construct such a spectacular building,
Dr Burrows reminded them that the
building is a visible manifestation of
the ministry and a tool for the expan-
sion of the Kingdom of God.

He spoke also of a winning team,
saying that winners celebrate vision,
leadership and commitment.

Bishop Sobig Kemp, president of
the Grand Bahama Christian Council,
brought greetings on behalf of all cler-
gymen present, saying that many peo-
ple criticize churches for building big
buildings, he congratulated the family

! SENIOR Pastor
Wilbur and
| Barbara Outten

of FBC for having such a great vision
and for not being afraid to think big,
adding that the building will allow
them to do even greater works for
God's Kingdom.

Minister of Works and Transport
Neko Grant, and Minister of State for
Finance Zhivargo Laing, both mem-
bers of FBC, also brought greetings.

Senior pastor of FBC Wilbur

‘Outten and his wife, Barbara Outten,

together cut the ribbon, officially
opening the doors to the church prior

to the service. During the service they _

presented the keys to the building to
the elders of the church. Pastor
Outten performed the act of dedica-
tion. Gees

’ During his moments of reflection, a

somewhat emotional Pastor Outten
paid homage to his mentor, Rev
Edward Godet, who founded
Freeport Bible Church 32 years ago.

Rev Godet,. who now resides in
New Providence, was unable to be in
attendance at the service as he has
been ailing for some time, however his
wife was at the celebration.

Pastor Outten also choked up when
speaking of his mother who died only
a few weeks ago. She too had played
her part in sharing in her son's vision
but unfortunately did not live to see it
to completion.

Pastor Outten reminisced about the
journey to that day; the joys and the
challenges, thanking his members for
their trust and support.

He said that four years ago he
shared his vision with his church fam-
ily asking them to make a three year
commitment to sacrificially give to a
building campaign. The members will-
ing embraced the vision which God
had revealed to him and on Saturday
they all realized the dream together as
the $2.5 million edifice, of which
Pastor Outten said a little more than
$800,000 had been sacrificially given
by members thus far, was dedicated to
the honour and glory of God.

Freeport Bible Church was estab-
lished in April of 1976 with eight
members worshiping at a home on
Poinciana Drive. Today, it has an
enrollment of approximately 470
members. The church's vision is
“Love God, Love People, Serve the

World”. It is a member of the
Bahamas Evangelical Church
Association.

sive position is automatically taken. .
Maybe four or five generations down

the road the Bahamas will have a level

of mediocrity and containment.

The question has always been asked
as to why itis that we (our governments)
are constantly paying foreign consult-
ants, thousands of dollars to come in
and tell us things which we already or
should have already known about the

our own country?

The fact of the matter is, it's not that.

all of our leaders and professionals are
incompetent, but rather, are just too
afraid to be pro-active in thinking and

they should fail no fingers can be point-
ed at them (you bunch of wimps/sissies).

Real leaders are never afraid to fail;
failure is not a person, but rather it is an
event. It is better to fail in trying to bring
about a positive solution, than to fail in
not doing anything at all.

With the amount of money that flows
through this country-annually and the

comprehensive evacuation plan if need
be.

We can spend the next ten years argu-
ing and splitting hairs about which gov-
ernment did what or which didn't do
anything; meanwhile the condition of
our islands are still the same from king
hatchet was a hammer.

Then, to add insult to injury and paci-
fy the situation, we've been religiously
trained to ignorantly throw in a few
scripture verses and prayer after the
fact.

The events of September 11, where
the Twin Towers came down, taught the

. authorities of America a valuable lesson

from which they've learned and have
updated and revised their entire securi-
ty system.

Hurricane Katrina taught the author-

ities of New Orleans a valuable lesson
which enabled them to come up with a
comprehensive evacuation plan for that
city; unfortunately the. leadership pool
of the Bahamas, due to their lack of
vision, can't see that far enough to be
truly pro-active.

What will it take?

Would it take a national disaster or
some other catastrophic event before
our leaders change their ancient meth-
ods of operation?

_ During the closing training session
Archdeacon Ranfurly Brown, rector

prayer ministry for accepting his first
challenge to them. He advised’ the

adopted and conformed to the ancient
methods and are too afraid to speak.of
new ideas and visions in order to be
accepted by the old guard (God, help
us).

With all that is going on in this coun-
try there should be a unified, clarion
cry/call from the church that will cause
our elected officials to perform expedi-
tiously; this will-‘never happen because”
the church is so divided. /

The hurricanes/storms, wars and
rumors of wars, the murders and other
serious crimes that are being committed
are the beginning of the sorrows that are
to come (Matthew 24:1-51).

Preparation is the key, both naturally

- and spiritually. As the prophet Jeremiah

began to complain to God about the
state/condition of Israel due to their
wickedness‘and how he was tired of
things being the way they were, here
was God's reply, [f thou hast run with the
footmen, and they have wearied thee,
then how canst thou contend with hors-
es? And if in the land of peace, wherein
thou trustedst, they wearied thee, then

how wilt thou do in the swelling of -

Jordan? JEREMIAH 12:5

In other words “Jeremiah, if you can't
tun with the foot soldiers, how are you
going to run when the horsemen come
or if you think its bad now; then what
will you do when things get worse?

Likewise I say to the Bahamas, keep
playing politics, keep on playing church;
if you think it's bad now, just wait.
Hurricanes Jane, Floyd, Wilma, Hanna
and Ike are a joke as to what's coming.

DELIVERING a fiery and
at times emotional speech after
being acquitted of sexual
harassment yesterday, popular
media personality Darold
Miller told his former employ-
er, GEMS Radio, that he “is
coming for (his) money.”

Speaking to a crowd on
Arawak Cay after the acquittal
(see page 3), Mr Miller
thanked those who supported
him during the trial, saying that
the entire ordeal has made him
stronger.

“I have been vindicated, I
am free,” an emotional Miller



shouted as he stood outside his
stall, the Entertainment Shack
on Arawak Cay yesterday, an
hour after being found
not guilty of sexual
harassment.

Flanked by supporters who

cheered and spoke words of

encouragement, Mr Miller first
gave thanks to God, his father,
and especially his mother who
was his biggest supporter
throughout his trial.

“The magistrate in her bril-
liance ruled that there was
absolutely no truth to anything
that was brought against me.

PRISON Superintendent

Dr Elliston Rahming yes-
terday admitted to “signif-
icant” corruption at Her
Majesty’s Prison.

Testifying at the House
of Assembly Select Com-
mittee meeting on crime
yesterday morning, Dr
Rahming told House rep-
resentatives that the issue
of corruption is “at a wor-
risome level” at the prison.

“It’s not out of control,
but if you’ve got 40 to 50
staff members, and you’ve
got a four.to five per cent
corruption factor, that is
‘Significant in a prison envi-
ronment,” he said.

Committee member and
MP Kenyatta Gibson went
further in asking Dr Rah-
ming, “Would you be sur-
prised if it was the general
public’s perception that it
— corruption — was ram-
pant?”

Dr Rahming replied, “I
would be interested in
looking at how that con-
clusion was arrived at.”

In his analysis of the
issue, Dr Rahming indicat-
ed that three of the main
engines for corruption is
the illegal intake of cellular
telephones, weapons and
drugs into the prison facil-
ity.

Sacked hotel

@ By MEGAN REYNOLDS
Tribune Staff Reporter



HOTEL workers sacked from
the Wyndham Hotel in Cable
Beach marched to court yesterday
to file a writ against their employer
for breach of contract.

Counsel and attorney Obie Fer-
guson is representing 14 to 18 of
around 60 people who lost their
jobs at the Wyndham Hotel when
two icwers closed as tourism dwin-
dled over the summer.

Mr Ferguson claims the Bahamar
Development Company Ltd and
Cable Beach Resorts Ltd let
employees go unlawfully by pay-

‘ing them.an inadequate redundan-
cy.

Room attendants employed for
25 years were given aroiind $5,000,
just a fraction of the $43,000 they
were entitled to, Mr Ferguson said.

_ "They just threw us out the door when they finished with us
. and that is wrong.
"We want the government to get involved so it doesn’ t hap-

Attorney _

As representing attorney, Mr Ferguson said he believes he has
a strong case.

"Irrespective of who you are, when you breach the law you go
to the court;"-he said.

"I think it is time Bahamian workers got something out of the
system and got treated properly — this was a fundamental breach ~
of contract and will be argued in the courts."

The group of workers represented by Mr Ferguson marched
from his office in Elizabeth Avenue to file their writs at the
Supreme Court.

Among them was Deborah Flowers, 51, a room attendant for
25 years who kept her full-time job when the two towers closed
last summer, but has lost out with a $5,000 pay-off this
year.

MINISTER of State for :

ister today on the outcome of :
a CARICOM meeting in Bar- :
bados on the controversial Eco- :
nomic Partnership Agreement. :

CARICOM leaders met in :
Barbados on Tuesday to ham- :
mer‘ out détails’relating to the :
EPA, 4 week after the original :
signing date and daysvafter :
European Union (EU) agents }
stated that if CARICOM coun- :
tries do not sign on, preferential :
access for their products to the :

European market will be lost.
The Bahamas, Trinidad,
Jamaica, Barbados, the Domini-

can Republic, Belize, and St.
Vingent are in favour of sign- :
ing onto the deal and were said :
to be in serious talks yesterday :
to persuade reluctant regional :

leaders.

In a brief interview from Bar- ;
bados, Mr Laing said he could :
not divulge specifics of the :
meeting before he speaks with :
Prime Minister Hubert Ingra- ;
ham, who is minister of finance. :

"T'm not at liberty to give you }

an update,” he said.

President of Guyana Bharrat :
Jagdeo is said to be leading the :
charge for not signing the agree- :
ment, arguing the deal is notin :

the region's best interests.

St Lucia has reportedly said
they will not sign onto the
agreement while Grenada is ;

asking for an extension.

If the Bahamas does not sign :
onto the EPA by the current :
deadline ~ October 31 - it :
could incur serious trading :

penalties.

The EPA is a broad-based }
pact that is supposed, over the :
next decade-and-a-half, tolead :.,
to reciprocal free trade in goods :
and services between the 27-. :

member EU and the region.

The agreement was initially
slated for a July signing date :
but was post-poned several :

times in August.

It was then assigned a tenta- i

which was rescheduled. A-new,-}.

A&E ‘took five hours to treat
Cynthia Pratt’s husband’

@ By PAUL TURNQUEST
Tribune Staff Reporter
pturnquest@tribunemedia.net

FORMER Deputy Prime Min-
ister Cynthia Pratt called on gov-
ernment to do something about
the obscenely long waiting times at
the Accident and Emergency sec-
tion of the Princess Mosearet Hos-
pital.

She said that on Tuesday it took °

' five hours for A&E to treat her

i’ husband, Joseph Pratt, who was °

not admitted to the private med-
ical ward until 10pm.

Mrs Pratt said her husband
waited in the A&E section without
being offered anything to eat, and
for the entire time, no credible
explanation was given for the wait.

“{ thought for a moment it
might be a problem with beds, and
I could understand that being in
the system (Mrs Pratt was once a
nurse}. But that was not a prob-
lem, because when I went to the
ward I’asked the nurse if there
was a problem with beds and she
said. ‘No Mother Pratt, they called
us after 5 to say that Mr Pratt was
to be admitted and we wondered
what happened, what took them
so long’,” she said.

Mrs Pratt said was not only
complaining for her husband, but
also for the many other Bahami-
ans who have to deal with such
unprofessionalism at A&E.

“As a diabetic they should have
ensured that food was there so he
could have something to eat at 10
o'clock in the night. But by the
time we got there they said the
cafeteria was closed, so one of the
young men had to go out and look
for food for him at 10 o'clock.
These kind of things are not right.

“J am voicing my concern is for
people in general. It didn’t have to
be my husband, it could have been
anybody. For five hours I was at
A&E and it was like a fish market!

“T could hear this doctor arguing
with this teacher, a foreign doc-
tor. He is telling a teacher that he
is doing her a favour by looking
after her boy. And her and this
doctor got into an argument in the
corridor; I mean it was unprofes-
sional,” she said.

Decision time for Inaguans

WHAT DEVASTATION!

Take a look at today’s front page and weep
for what remains in the wake of an “act of
God” over which man has no control. A vicious
Hurricane, never before experienced by
Inaguans, settled over that island in the darkness
‘of Sunday morning. It didn’t exhaust its windy
‘fury until late that afternoon.

It had left several lifetimes of hard work
_and much sacrifice in twisted ruins behind it.
The small island’s salt industry, its only liveli-
hood, which had taken more than 70 years to
build, had been destroyed. The Morton Salt
Company, which took over an industry started

' by three pioneering New.England brothers —
Wentworth (Bill), Jim and Doug Erickson —
employed 60 per cent of the island’s popula-
tion. Today these workers are jobless, all hoping
that the company will reopen.

_. Visiting the scene Tuesday, Prime Minister
Hubert Ingraham, hoped that “Morton will see
its way clear to restart its operation.” He point.

ed out that “they are critical to the economy of
Inagua.” As a result, he continued, “Inagua

_ enjoys the highest standard of living of any of ©

the islands in the southeast Bahamas. There
are just under 1,000 souls who live on this island
and they have had a fairly good income as a
result of Morton.”

Of course, some of Morton’s younger work-
ers who know nothing of the struggle to turn
Inagua’s salt pans into profit, took strike action,
closing the plant for two weeks, shortly before

the hurricane. The island’s older heads who
helped build the company shook their heads in
disbelief. “The company-has been good to its
employees,” one of them said. “But we are now
dealing with the twenty-first century genera-
tion — a generation without gratitude and with-
out character.”
One ofthe company’s originals, whose mem-
ory recalls the Erickson days, said that many of
the persons employed by Morton today are the

children and grandchildren of the original wark-

ers who helped build the island’s salt industry.
He said that Inaguans in general were not for
the strike, “thé rank and file are not involved,
but there are a few radicals among the workers
and they are intimidating the rest.” 7%

He hadn’t a good'word to say for the union .

leadership. He believed they lacked “charac-

ter”, were “ill-advised” and “not thinking of

the welfare of the island.”

Yesterday, speaking with a Tribune reporter,
a Morton spokesman in Philadelphia, said that
the company’s present plan is to rebuild their
Inagua plant, but ... And therein lies the sting.
“If further down the line in the next week or two

we find out that there’s something we don’t
know about that changes those plans, I suspect
that we might be having a different answer,” he
said.

The only voice blustering in arrogance
among all this doubt, was that of union leader
Obie Ferguson, adviser to Inagua’s unionists.
He is the only one who is certain that Morton
Salt will not leave Inagua. In essence, he is say-
ing that it can’t leave because of the country’s

“low taxes, low regulations and low proce- .

dures.”

Any multinational company would want to do
business in the Bahamas, he said with confi-
dence. Mr Ferguson is fooling himself, and any-
one who believes these empty words are equal-
ly as foolish.

“Morton Salt will never complain about the
productivity or the efficiency of the workers,”
said Mr Ferguson. This is not true. Morton Salt
has already complained about the productivity
and efficiency of its Inagua workers. It has made
comparisons with its other plants. Last year,
when Morton kept all of its 104 non-manage-
ment staff employed during a 15-week period
when no salt was being harvested, it pointed
out that Morton’s costs were “three tirnes above
normal.”

It said that Mexico produced five million
tonnes of salt a year with the capacity to
increase to seven million compared to Mor-
ton’s Inagua plant that produced only 1.2 million
tonnes. Chile also had better production.

“We’re competing globally in a global mar-
ketplace with Mexico and Chile, and in Mexico
the labour costs are much lower than what we
have here,” Morton’s local managing director

’ Glenn Bannister told workers at the time.

--Morton’s lead office spokesman said yes-

terday that it “cannot say with 100 per cent cer-

tainty” that it will keep operating in Inagua if in
the. coming weeks it “tin ds out that it is not
practical.”

The spokesman said that many things will be

taken into consideration before the final deci- -

sion is made.’

We can assure Mr Ferguson that his attitude
and the attitude of his unionists and their behav-
iour in the past several weeks will be very much
a part of the decision making process. That
behaviour could tip the scales the wrong way.

It is dumb for anyone to think that they are
indispensable.

The world will continue to spin without any of .

us.

And Morton Salt can continue to prosper
without Inagua. Let’s pray that they will decide
to keep Inagua in the family.

THE TRIBUNE





FNM made
bipartisan
gesture after
Hurricane Ike

EDITOR, The Tribune.

I listened to some of the
radio talk show on Love 97

- Tuesday, 9 September. That

was the same day Prime Min-
ister Hubert Ingraham led a
team to assess the damage at
Inagua after Hurricane Ike.
Wendall Jones' guest was Hal-
ston Moultrie.

It was said that the repre-
sentative for Inagua, Alfred
Gray, had not been called by
the Government in connec-
tion with the approaching hur-
ricane. \

Why would Mr. Gray sit
down and wait for a call from
someone in the Government
instead of picking up the
phone himself and calling
NEMA or going to the press

briefings headed by the Prime

Minister?

In fact, I'm sure the Prime
Minister would have been
happy to take Mr. Gray's call
himself and given him any
information he wanted.

The point is that some peo-
ple — apparently including
Mr. Jones and Mr. Moultrie
— fail to acknowledge that the
FNM does have a superior

record of fair play and decen-.

Gage eS

letters@tribunemedia.net



cy when it comes to national
emergencies like hurricanes,
and how to treat the Opposi-
tion generally.

Mr. Moultrie lamented the
lack of a bipartisan approach
when that is exactly the
approach the FNM has taken
in these matters.

In fact, while they were
holding forth, Mr. Ingraham
had just landed in Inagua with
his team and had taken along
not only Mr. Gray, but also
PLP Leader Perry Christie
and PLP Chairperson Glenys
Hanna Martin!

I understand the Opposi-
tion members had been try-
ing to arrange their own char-

ter when they received the ©

invitation from Mr. Ingraham
to go with him to Inagua.
That's the way our Prime Min-
ister and his Government do
things and it's time people like
Mr. Jones and Mr. Moultrie
acknowledge that.

One other thing. A caller to

the show raised the question
about the PLP plan to build
that. three-million dollar
school in Salina Point, Ack-
lins, as an example of. atleged
PLP vision.

The suggestion was that the
school was also to be a hurri-
cane shelter for Acklins.

Mr. Jones neglected to
explain that $3 million was too
much for a school for just 30
plus students.

Furthermore he could have
explained that if the PLP Gov- °
ernment was interested in.a
storm shelter for the island of
Acklins they would not have
put it in the remotest settle-
ment, Salina Point, but some-
where more central.

The truth is that this project
— which was fortunately
stopped, reviewed and can-
celled by the FNM — would
have been a scandalous waste

‘of taxpayers’ money, just like

the straw market would have
been on a grander scale if it
had not been stopped,
reviewed and cancelled by our
responsible FNM Govern-
ment.

SOLID FNM

We need to pay more attention to
our quality of life, Mr Prime Minister

EDITOR, The Tribune.

Please publish this open let-
ter to the Prime Minister:

Dear Mr Prime Minister:
You seem so on the cutting

edge, so with it. How is it

though that you seem deaf to

the abominable noises vehi-.
cles and buses with music, and.

motor bikes, minus their muf-
flers, with riders minus their
senses, make on the streets of
New Providence especially?
For.a long time I’d been
made aware that New York
had stiffened the penalties
severely to deal with persons
who might choose to disturb

the peace with music boom-" ~~
‘vehicles going about, is one

ing in vehicles.

A recent visit to far away
Guyana, revealed that simi-
larly, the Guyanese Govern-
ment has seen fit to outlaw


























music which disturbs the
peace in vehicles and on buses
on the streets of Guyana as
well.

Iam often made to wonder
about this country of ours
being Paradise — often made
to wonder about it being bet-
ter in The Bahamas.

’ We always seem to be so
late and so slow to embrace
and to implement measures
which have to do with main-
taining and enhancing the
quality of life in our country.

Away from the tourist areas
and often times within these
areas as well, life and condi-
tions are so harsh — so trau-
matic.

Thesé foises in and from

unbearable element. Smoking
in public places is another
unforgivable element.

We often seem so slow to
comply and to conform — so
slow to embrace the loftiest
standards, revealing that we,
our. leadership. included,
beneath our trappings of
wealth and success, are an
insensitive, rude, backward




) eee

people. Forgive my candour..

It. is just so unbearable.

That we can tolerate some
of the things we put up with |
socially and in our environ-
ment, indicate clearly how cal-
lous we are.

Why should anyone have to
grow such very thick skin?
Don’t we cease being human
once our skin adept OeS
into hide?

The lighting of fires, ‘chok-
ing our neighbours without
concern, is another infraction
against which nothing is done.

Guyana seemed so soft in
comparison to here a home,
the people so much more mild
mannered. We need to pay

more attention in our society--~ -

Mr Prime Minister, to the fin-
er things — to.what militates
against the quality of life.-

We are so quantity orien-
tated here. Bahamians all
wanting more and more
resulting without fail, in less
and less.

Four are rescued from sinking
Bahamian boat by US Coast Guard

Vessel had suffered engine failure

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

A US Coast Guard helicopter rescued
four people from a sinking Bahamian fish-
ing boat that was battling “mountainous”
seas 40 miles off Inagua on Sunday
evening.

The 60-foot fishing boat had suffered
engine failure and was taking on water in

70 knot winds and 30 to 35 foot seas, with
40 foot swells, the Coast Guard report-
ed.

The Jayhawk rescue helicopter reached :

it at around 8pm on Sunday, as Category
four Hurricane Ike was still bearing down
on the Southern Bahamas.

A rescue swimmer was sent down to

the fishermen from the helicopter to hoist
the stranded boaters to safety.

The swimmer, Petty Officer 3rd Class
Jon Geskus, said the winds were so strong
that rain was “coming in sideways” against
the helicopter.

On his first trip down, he lost his fins in
the rough waters and part of his suit. “The



Recommendations made
for prison improvements

’ M By LLOYD ALLEN

IN AN effort to transform Her
Majesty’s Prison from a penal insti-
tution into a correctional facility
that aids in the prevention of crime,
a number of recommendations
were made yesterday by prison
administrators at a House Select
Committee meeting on crime.

According to Prison Superin-
tendent Elliston Rahming, one of
the major issues related to the
prison is the increasing number of
inmates the facility can hold.

Dr Rhaming said that the prison
was built about 40 years ago with a
housing capacity for around 1,350
inmates. However, the present pop-
ulation at the facility is about 1,380
inmates.

During his presentation yester-
day morning, Dr Rahming also said
that often, inmates on remand end
up out-numbering sentenced indi-
viduals.

He revealed that in 2007, some
2,556 persons were admitted to the
institution, out of which 68 per cent
were on remand.

Also reported was out of the
1,751 persons admitted between
January and August of this year,
69 per cent were inmates on
remand, and where 22 per cent
were recidivist inmates.

Dr Rahming also noted that
there are no current laws in effect
which allow for the early release
of long term inmates who “no
longer pose a threat to society.”

Dr Rahming said: “I am not sug-

gesting for one second that those *

who commit serious crimes should
be punished lightly. . . I am sug-

gesting however, that we look at '

the intent, the purpose of custodial
punishment and when that purpose
has been served, we resort to alter-
natives on a case by case basis.”
In his address to the committee,
Dr Rahming provided the follow-



Prison Superintendent
Elliston Rahming

‘ing alternatives to turning the

prison into a correctional institu-
tion:

¢ The introduction of a plea bar-
gaining system

e Alternative sentencing for non-
violent and non-dangerous offend-
ers

e Allotting more time to pay for
indigent offenders who’ve been
fined to avoid incarceration

e Introducing electric monitoring
vs traditional remanding for minor
or non-violent offenders

e Expanding the remand facility

e Systematically assessing the
cases of long term sentenced peo-
ple to determine their suitability
for early release

.Dr Rahming feels these ideas
should be the subject of a parlia-
mentary debate, and then be con-
verted into common practice. “The

prison would quickly become an.

instrument of crime prevention,

and not just a place for incarcera-

tion,” he said.

Thr committee, which introduces
initiatives to be converted into bills
for debate in the House of Assem-
bly, is chaired by Bain Town MP
Bernard Nottage.

waves looked like mountains,” he said.

The aircraft was launched from Provi-
dencialies in Turks and Caicos and had to
battle strong wind and rain to reach the
distressed boaters.

After the four were rescued they were
taken to Providenciales airport. No
injuries were reported.

Hospital drill frightens bystanders

@ By NATARIO McKENZIE

AN evacuation drill brought
operations at the Princess Mar-
garet Hospital to a standstill
briefly yesterday as patients,
staff and visitors were forced to
exit the building.

When the Tribune arrived at
the scene, bystanders claimed
that the building had been evac-
uated sometime around
10.30am because of a supposed
bomb threat.

Patients from the accident
and emergency section were
brought outside where hospital
staff tended to them and used
umbrellas to shade for them
from the sweltering heat.

Sergeant Anton Moss of the
police Fire Services Department
confirmed that there was no
real threat, as it was actually an
evacuation drill.

“What actually happened was

that we had an emergency evac-
uation drill in case there was an
actual emergency here at the
hospital. So it’s basically just.a
drill and we’re going to iron out
-some things and try to improve
on how to effectively evacuate if
needed at any possible time,”
Sergeant Moss said. :

’ to see that people made an

effort,” Sergeant Moss said.
“This was actually a blind drill
and that was always a challenge.
When people know its a drill
they tend to relax but that was
the problem they didn’t know

and they still relaxed,” Sergeant
Moss said.

He said Fire Services fre-
quently conduct such exercises,
however yesterday was the first
at the Princess Margaret Hos-
pital in quite some time.

“The management team
wishes to assure the public that
the safety of our patients and

staff were not compromised
during the drill and this remains
a priority,” a hospital statement
said.

One bystander who was visit-
ing a sick sister at the hospital
said the fact that there was no
available facility to house the
patients in the event of such a
circumstance was deplorable.

“My sister is right here on this
trolley she has been here from
Monday with a mild stroke. I
think even though its a bomb
scare and the patients security
comes first, to bring all these
patients out here in the hot sun
is deplorable, there ought to be
a backup in the event of a bomb
scare or have some other facili-
ties available,” the man who
chose anonymity said.

Lyndianna Rahming, a nurse
who was visiting a relative,
praised the hospital’s staff for
moving the patient’s out expe-
ditiously.

“I was upstairs, they was get-:
ting everybody out as quickly
as possible, I can’t complain,’
she said.

“The nurses doing their best,
they got the people out fast,
upstairs and downstairs.”

Nottage faces 8% pension loss if term not.

extended, says Bar Association President

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

SUPREME Court Justice
Rubie Nottage will receive about
eight per cent less in pension pay-
ments if her term is not extended
by another two years, Bar Asso-
ciation President Wayne Munroe
said.

If her term is not extended, the
government would have to pay
her pension in accordance with
her five months of employment
as a justice, and may also have to
pay a salary and subsequent pen-
sion to her replacement. Mr
Munroe said this move would be a
waste of tax-payer money and is
not cost-effective:

"Pensions are based on time of
service. From my recollection
there is not going to be a signifi-
cant difference in it, she will get
the pension that's appropriate to
someone who has served the time
that she has. It's not as spectacular
as people think, so there would
be very little difference there".

Mr Munroe said Section 8 of
the Judges Remuneration and
Pensions. Act says that everyone
other. than the chief justice gets a
pension at the annual rate of 2/5
of the pensionable emolument (or
the annual basic salary) paid to a
judge plus 1/300 of this amount
in respect to each completed
month.

The annual basic salary for a
judge is between $85,000 to
$95,000 plus benefits, Mr Munroe
said.

Mr Munroe said he expects Mrs
Nottage to return to her previous
job as a college professor: where
she will receive a salary along with

a pension for her time served as a

justice.:

"Nothing prevents her from
getting a pension (if) she returns
to that employment. The only dif-
ference will be that instead of pay-
ing the other 3/5 and having that
judge, you will now pay the
(whole amount) to somebody else.
So it costs the country more
because instead of paying 2/5 of



Rubie Nottage

the pension for the next two years
you could have paid her the full
thing and she could have served as
a judge. Now you're going to pay
her (pension) plus you're going
to pay someone the whole salary
and get into a pension for them.



“In America
judges sit until
80 and on,
once their
minds are
clear and all
the rest.”



Ex-senior parliamentarian

It's not a cost effective move,"
said Mr Munroe, adding that he
would be baffled if the govern-
ment did not extend Mrs Not-
tage's employment.

He said the Bar Association has
not been consulted about not
extending Mrs Nottage's appoint-
ment. Nor has he received any
official notice in regards to such 4
move.

He also expressed concern

about "the poor Bahamian peo-
ple" who have cases before Mrs
Nottage and may have to start
again in front of a new judge if
the matters are not completed
before her 65th birthday.

Yesterday a former senior par-
liamentarian told The Tribune
there is a general feeling within
the legal community that the con-
stitution should be amended to
increase the age of retirement for
judges.

"There is a feeling, and I agree
with this; that that's too young an
age and I think the constitution
should be changed to take that
age up, because we have judges
who are just as experienced at that
age. As a matter of fact I believe
that was one of the things that

‘was put in the referendum; that

the age (of 65) be extended. The
FNM wanted to do that, extend
the age of judges. But today you
know, 65 is not considered old. In
America judges sit until 80 and
on, once their minds are clear and
all the rest".

The Tribune understands that
Mrs Nottage's appointment will
not be extended past her 65th
birthday next month. According
to the constitution a justice who
has reached the age of 65 can have
their term’ extended for two years
until the age of 67, however the
prime minister has to make a
request for this extension to the
governor general after consulta-
tion with the leader of the oppo-
sition.

An extension can also be grant-
ed to allow time for the conclusion
of all open cases before a justice
who is due retire.

‘Prime Minister Hubert Ingra-
ham has said he will allow the law
to take its course and declined to
make any further comment on the
matter. PLP leader Perry Christie °
told The Tribune he was consulted
on the issue, but did not divulge
his recommendations.

Mrs Nottage's appointment in
April was steeped in controversy
because of an indictment in the
United States 20 years ago in con-
nection with money laundering
charges. Her name was also men-

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

FREEPORT - Shalom

Caribbean International and.

Access Ministries International
have launched a television pro-
gramme aimed at promoting the
pro-Zionist message to millions
of people to pray for the peace
of Jerusalem.

Rev Alexis Wallace, president
of Shalom Caribbean Interna-
tional, announced that the pro-
gramme, Shalom Intercessors
Bulletin, began broadcast from
Grand Bahama to over 40 mil-
lion people across Europe this
past Saturday. Grand Bahama
Christian Council president Rev
Sobig Kemp was present for the

announcement held at Access .

Ministries offices in Coral Gar-
dens, Freeport, on Tuesday.
Rev Wallace said the pro-
gramme is being aired on Faith
TV - a Christian movie, docu-
mentary and biography channel
featuring drama, comedy, action,
and educational programmes.
“We were delighted that our
programme was approved to be
aired there, and we will be com-

ing to the Bahamas soon via a .

local channel,” he said. .

Rev Wallace said Shalom
Intercessors Bulletin is a half-
hour variety TV programme that
was produced and recorded in
Freeport at the Pelican Bay
_ Hotel. ,

“TV producers from Atlanta
were brought to Freeport, where
over the course of two weeks sev-
eral Grand Bahama pastors were
selected to address from a biblical
perspective these ‘end time’ ene-
mies of Judah which have become
strategically entrenched within
our Caribbean,” he said.

Rev Wallace is committed to
seeing that the Caribbean
becomes a “Zionist region.”

“Shalom Caribbean is dedicat-

ed to forming stronger alliances

': sbetween.the nation of {srael and

the Caribbean and this is what
pro-Zionism is all about. Shalom

Intercessors is dedicated to the-

biblical mandate of praying for
the peace of Jerusalem as Psalms
122:6 tells us, ‘pray for the peace

- of Jerusalem: they shall prosper
that love thee’. ”

Rev Wallace noted that the
programme has already received
a lot of local support and will
begin airing in the Bahamas
before the end of the month.

“We have already met with
Cable Bahamas and a local chan-
nel. This media outreach was
strongly supported by the local
business community enabling a

full season of television pro--

grammes to be recorded,” he said.

In addition to the programme,
Rev Wallace said that Shalom
Caribbean has visited many
churches in New Providence, edu-
cating persons about the Judaic
heritage of the Caribbean and the
Bahamas. “We shared a power
point presentation of the rich
Judaic heritage of our region that
dates all the way back to Christo-
pher Columbus. ,

“And these presentations left
audiences more encouraged to
pray for the peace of Jerusalem as
they realise the rich Hebrew her-
itage and current influence that
have been key in'the building of
our nations and region,” he said.

Grand Bahama Christian
Council president Rev Kemp and
other local pastors support the
programme and what Shalom
Caribbean and Access Ministries
are doing to promote the mes-
sage of Pro-Zionism.

“We endorse the ministry of
Shalom Caribbean International
and Shalom Intercessors because
the work they are doing is really
remarkable, and the presentation
Rev Wallace has been making
throughout the churches is very
enlightening, informative, and

very inspirational. “The Bible
teaches us that God will bless’
those who bless his chosen peo-
ple, the Jews. So everyone who
supports Israel is guaranteed a

. blessing from the Lord. If you

look at Israel today considering
what they have experienced,
God’s blessing is definitely evi-
dent and manifest in their lives
like never before, and we now
have come to the realisation and
acknowledgment that we should
support the Jews and every
Israelite,” said Rev Kemp.

GRAND TURK, Turks Island
— Prime Minister Hubert Ingra-
ham, in his capacity as chairman
of the Caribbean Disaster Emer-
gency Response Agency
(CDERA), toured the stormed
ravaged Grand Turk and South
Caicos on Tuesday.

Turks and Caicos Premier
Michael Misick lauded Mr Ingra-
ham’s visit and said it represents
the close bond between his coun-
try and the Bahamas.

Arriving in Grand Turk aboard
a US Coast Guard helicopter, Mr
Ingraham along with Bahamas
National Security Minister Tom-
my Turnquest, were given a first-
hand view of the damage caused
by Hurricane Ike and. Tropical
Storm Hanna. Prior to his arrival
in the Turks and Caicos Islands,
Mr Ingraham toured the island
of Inagua, over which Ike passed
as a category four hurricane.

“We thank Prime Minister
Ingraham for coming and show-
ing his support,” Premier Misick
told reporters at the Grand Turk
International Airport.

“As you know, the Turks and
Caicos and the Bahamas are one
people, we feel each other’s
pain.”

Mr Ingraham also highlighted
the long-standing relationship
between the Bahamas and the
Turks and Caicos.

“We were delighted to have
the opportunity to come down
and show solidarity with our
brothers and sisters here in the
Turks and Caicos,” Mr Ingraham
said. “The relationship between
the Bahamas and the Turks and
Caicos is long-standing and strong
and we in the Bahamas will do
all we can to assist.

“We will be holding discussions
with the Premier to determine
the extent to which assistance
from the Bahamas would be nec-
essary and/or required, and we

would undertake to do all we can °

to ensure that restoration of com-
munities in Grand Turk and
South Caicos is achieved in the
shortest possible time,” he said. -

Many homes and businesses on
Grand Turk sustained varying
degrees of roof and other struc-
tural damage.

During his tour of the island,
Mr Ingraham was met by Lydia
Henfield, who relayed her har-
rowing tale of survival during
Hurricane. Ike, Ms Henfield and

under a small kitchen table for
hours as their home was

her loss, the Grand Turk resident
exhibited an attitude of thankful-
ness and praise — it was a stance
seen in many residents still reeling
from the wide spread damage left
in Ike’s aftermath.

Morton Salt could close

FROM page one

these difficult economic
times.

“I think we’re committed to
doing what we can do. Right
now our plans are to bring the
plant back up. If we find out
further down the line that
that’s not practical we’d have
to reassess at that time. I know
it’s an equivocal statement,
but we haven’t crossed that
bridge yet.”

Mr Bochanski, a manager
of executive communication
and communication technol-
ogy at Morton International’s

’ parent company Rohm and

Haas, consulted yesterday
with Morton International’s
head office, which was in con-
tact with a team of Morton
executives just back in the
United States from a trip to
Inagua.

Rohm and Haas are cur-
rently in the process of being
taken over by the Dow Chem-
ical Company. :

“We’re focusing on site
assessment and clean up. Our
plan’s to resume operations at
the site as soon as we can. The
site did receive significant
damage. We have some struc-
tural engineers who will be
making assessment of dollar
amount, so I don’t have the

dollar amount, but I can tell
you it is significant.”

Mr Bochanski added:
“Right now based on what
they saw and the plan we have
in place it is our intention to
bring the plant back up. If fur-
ther down the line in the next
week or two we find out that
there’s something we don’t
know about that changes
those plans, I suspect that we
might be having a different
answer.”

He said the company’s main
priority is on working with the
Bahamas Electricity Corpora-
tion, which will be taking over
the operation of the island’s
power plant from Morton Salt
at the end of the month, to
restore the electricity supply.

Meanwhile, with the com-
pany hoping to bring workers
back in a gradual “phased”
way, they are considering
what financial relief they may
offer to Inaguans who will be
out of work for sometime.

“IT can’t tell you what that
will be but probably in the
next day or two we will know.
Whether relief would better
go to employees directly or
maybe to a third party like the
Red Cross will have to be
determined,” he said.

Despite the uncertain state-
ments from Mr Bochanski,

Trade Union Congress leader
Obie Ferguson — who acts as
legal adviser to the Morton
Salt’s union, the Bahamas
Industrial Manufacturers and
Allied Workers Union —
expressed his confidence yes-
terday that Morton Salt will
not pull out of Inagua.

* He said the union is com-
mitted to working with man-
agement to “normalise things
as best as possible so the com-
pany can really get on and
start making money” and he
would “certainly encourage
them to continue to operate
in the Bahamas.”

“Morton Salt (Inagua) is a
major investment for the com-
pany,” said Mr Ferguson.

“The Bahamas is really an
investment area for most
multinational corporations.
It’s low on taxes, low on regu-
lations, low on procedures; so

‘any multinational company

would want to do business in
the Bahamas,” said Mr Fer-
guson..

He also pointed to the pro-
ductivity level of Inaguans at
the plant as another mark in

favour of the company

remaining committed to the
isolated island.

“Morton Salt will never ’

complain about the produc-
tivity or the efficiency of the

workers,” he said.

Mr Ferguson said that the
Trade Union Congress will
also “be doing what we can
do for the people up there” in
terms of also coming up with
some sort of relief offering.

“You don’t just put the
responsibility on the employer
or government as unions we
have responsiblity. We’ve got
to be brothers.”

Although salt plant work-
ers are normally on regular
salaries as defined under their
fixed term industrial agree-
ment, “when you have crises
those rules are relaxed,”
explained the trade union
leader.

“You have to look at the
bigger picture. In order to do
that you have to forget cer-
tain things for the time being.
That’s the recommendation
I’ll be making,” he said.

“The union president would
appreciate the severity of what
happened and will sit down

. intelligently, listen to compa-

ny’s position, the members’
position.

“You want the company to
survive. If the company does-
n’t exist you would have a
problem. So while you want -
to improve your situation you
look at what’s best for
Inagua,” he added.

Darold Miller is acquitted

¢ Providing assistance in the early stage of delinquencies.

FROM page one

The charges were frivolous, vexatious and
a complete waste of the precious time of
the courts," Mr Miller said. “Throughout
the trial I wondered,, how could this be,
where is this society going with such a
travesty of justice.” Mr Miller likened his
prosecution to a.witch hunt, claiming that
it was never about sexual harassment.
“This exercise was like a witch hunt and
it ain’ had nothing to do with sexual

harassment, absolutely nothing. It had to .

do with moneys that were owed to me
that they refused to pay. It happened 40

days before the election, so you know pol-

itics was involved and it had to do with a
stand IJ took against sissyism in this coun-
try. We have lost our moral compass in this
country and when good men and women
stand up, you see what the consequences
can be, but God is a good God and I have
my faith in the Almighty God,” Mr Miller
said.

FROM page one

He explained that within the
prison system, in which
inmates are in a déprived envi-

“I have instructed my brilliant team of
lawyers to move quickly and bring civil
action against those who have maligned

my good character and who have defamed-

me,” Mr Miller said.

“GEMS owes me a lot of money and
God knows I need it. I ain work in 18
months, get my money ready, I comin’,”
Mr Miller said.

“My lawyers will be filing action quick-

ly, if not this day on the next," Mr Miller
said.

Thanking his supporters Mr Miller said
that throughout his experience he came to
know who his true friends were. “It’s been

18 long months and there were many times -

during those18 months that I was broke,
didn’t have a dollar, thank God for people
like Frank Hanna.

“When ‘you go through these valley
experiences you really know who your
friends are,” Mr Miller said.

“My phone used to ring a hundred times
a day, when they brought these false
charges against me it stopped ringing, only

one or two people were calling and Frank
Hanna was one of them,” he said.

“As I consider the options for my future
I think the only option I will consider is to
help the government transform
ZNS into what it ought to be,” Mr Miller
said.

“T have chartered a new course in my life
now. For 37 years I worked tirelessly,
burned the midnight oil running after fire
engine and ambulance, covering straw
market fire and hanging, hurricane and
everything else and never really made any
money. Finally I was about to make some
money and you see what they did," Mr

Miller said.

Mr Miller said that his popular daytime
talk show will return to the airwaves.

that a number of fail-safe

These include the installa-

Superintendent Rahming
also noted that an internal

which also assists in the detec-

action, including corruption at
the facility.

Dr Rahming said, “The fact
is that I’d like to be associated

“The battle is far from

THE Bahamas Telecommu-

The company deemed this °

BTC executive vice-presi-

island of Inagua, all ‘landline
services are presently down,
however residents are able to
use their GSM:and TDMA cell

is critical to the people of
Inagua, and we hope that this
$50 credit will assist our cus-
tomers during these challeng-

Re-creating the ‘Big Bang’

Scientists in Switzerland
to do the monster smash

@ [1 brief

Kim Jong li: a
familiar face
but a mystery —
to most

H SEOUL, South Korea

UNPREDICTABLE, elo-
quent, a film buff and a gour-
mand. North Korea’s Kim
Jong IJ is infamous for ruling
his impoverished country with
a “military first” policy since
the death of his father, but lit-
tle is known about his daily
life, according to the Associat-
ed Press.

There was no sign of Kim
at a para 2 Tuesday marking
the 60th anniversary of North
Korea’s founding, and West-
ern Officials say the 66-year-
old leader — who has not
appeared publicly for a month
— may be gravely ill.

Abroad, many consider the
pudgy, bouffant-haired Kim a
ruthless dictator who seeks
atomic weapons while starv-
ing his people. But at home,

the state-run media hails the /

“Dear Leader” as a prodigious
general, an ace film director
and the “Lodestar of the 21st
Century.”

Kim’s portrait is found
hanging beside his father’s in
North Korean households and
buildings, and his writings and
philosophy, mainly praise for
his father’s greatness and calls
for the defense of socialism,
are reported and broadcast
daily.

Biographical insight on Kim
is extremely sketchy. He rarely
appears in public and his voice
is seldom broadcast. But
defectors from North Korea

describe him as an eloquent
and tireless orator, primarily
to military units that form the
base of his support.

The reclusive Kim took
power in 1994 after the death
of his father, Kim I] Sung,
North Kv .ea’s founding ruler.
It was communism’s first
hereditary transfer of power,
and both Kims are revered in a
vast personality cult perpe-
trated by the country’s author-
itarian regime, which tolerates
no dissent.

Kim Jong II focused on the
military in his “songun,” or
“military-first” credo — devot-
ing much of the country’s
scarce resources to its troops
— the world’s fifth-largest mil-
itary, the 1.1 million-strong
People’s Army.

The policy was manifested
in Kim’s pursuit of nuclear
weapons that culminated in ©
North Korea’s first nuclear test
explosion in October 2006.

However, Kim shut down
the country’s sole nuclear reac-
tor in July of 2007 after the
U.S. helped resolve a separate
financial ispute.

North Korea suffered
famine and poverty in the mid-
1999s with as many as 2. mil-
lion people believed to have
died due to the loss of Soviet
aid, exacerbated. by natural
disasters and. outdated farm-
ing methods.

Kim has laid the blame for
North Korea’s problems
squarely on outside powers
and the country hurls daily
propaganda tirades at the
United States and Japan.

His image is familiar around
the world: short and rotund at
5-foot 3 inches, he wears plat-
form shoes and a bouffant
hairstyle to appear taller.

‘Khaki jumpsuits and sun-
glasses are his trademark
attire.

He is said to be a movie fan
who owns about 20,000 for-
eign films. He reportedly has
produced several films, mostly
historical epics with an ideo-
logical tinge.

He rarely travels abroad
and then only by train, once
heading all the way by luxury
rail car to Moscow, where he
also was able to indulge his
taste for fine food.



@ GENEVA
Associated Press

SCIENTISTS will launch an
experiment in a tunnel deep
beneath the French-Swiss bor-
der Wednesday, hoping to find
evidence of extra dimensions,
invisible “dark matter,” and an
elusive particle called the “Hig-
gs boson.”

And although leading physi-
cists such as Stephen Hawking
say the atom-smashing experi-
ment will be absolutely safe,
some skeptics fear the proton
collisions could unleash micro-
scopic black holes that would
eventually doom the Earth.

The most powerful atom-
smasher ever built will produce
collisions of protons traveling at
nearly the speed of light in the
circular tunnel, giving off show-
ers of particles that will provide
more clues as to how everything
in the universe is made.

In the $10 billion project —
the most extensive physics
experiment in history — the
Large Hadron Collider will
come ever closer to re-enacting
the “big bang,” the theory that a
colossal explosion created the
cosmos.

The project, organized by the
20 member nations of the Euro-
pean Organization for Nuclear
Research — known by its
French initials CERN — has
attracted researchers of 80
nationalities. Some 1,200 are
from the United States, an
observer country that con-
tributed $531 million.

The collider is designed to

push the proton beam close to.

the speed of light, moving
around the 17-mile tunnel at
11,000 times a second at full
power. Ramping up to full pow-
er is probably a year away.
Smaller colliders have been
used for decades to study the
atom. Scientists once thought
protons and neutrons were the
smallest components of an

‘ atom’s nucleus, but experiments

have shown they were made of
still smaller quarks and gluons,
and that there were other forces
and particles. ‘

The CERN experiments
could reveal more about “dark
matter,” antimatter and possi-
bly hidden dimensions of space
and time. It could also find evi-
dence of the hypothetical parti-
cle — the Higgs boson — which
is sometimes called the “God
particle.” It is believed to give
mass to all other particles, and
thus to matter that makes up
the universe.

The two beams of protons will .

travel in two tubes about the
width of fire hoses, speeding
through a vacuum that is colder
and emptier than outer space.
Their trajectory will be curved
by supercooled magnets — to
guide the beams.

_ The paths of these beams will
cross, and a few protons will col-
lide.

The two largest detectors —
essentially huge digital cameras
weighing thousands of tons —
are capable of taking millions
of snapshots a second.

Some skeptics have said the
collisions could result in tiny
black holes — subatomic ver-
sions of collapsed stars whose
gravity is so strong they can suck
in planets and other stars.

Micro black holes produced
by a collider, the critics theo-
rize, would move mare slowly
and might be trapped inside the
Earth’s gravitational field — and
eventually threaten the planet.

“It’s nonsense,” said CERN
chief‘spokesman James Gillies.

John Ellis, a British theoreti-
cal physicist at CERN, said
doomsayers assume that the col-
lider will create micro black
holes in the first place, which he
called unlikely.

And even if they appeared,
he said, they would instantly
evaporate, as predicted by
Hawking.

@ MEXICO CITY .

MEXICO’S notoriously
unreliable postal service is get-
ting the shock treatment —
shocking pink, that is, accord-
ing to the Associated Press.

Infamous for lost packages
and tardy delivery, the postal
service is getting a hot-pink
makeover to try to brighten up
its image, win back customers
— and pull it out of the red.

Changes include a new logo,

-~new uniforms and pink-and-

lime-green painted post offices.
Some will also sell cut-rate rice,
beans and powdered milk
alongside stamps. Coffee mugs
and envelopes — something
the post office didn’t sell before
— will also be available, but
only in hot pink and lime
green.

The service’s new symbol —
a white carrier pigeon holding a
letter in its beak — hit the
streets Tuesday, a day after

-President Felipe Calderon

unveiled the new look at a gala
ceremony. The government

because “we want to be very

But in a country where mail

often arrive weeks after they’re
sent, the public is skeptical.

only because she doesn’t
believe anyone bothers to col-
lect mail from the country’s red
street-corner mailboxes.

“They say it was faster in |

colonial times, when they used
horses and carriages,” Stern
said.

The new name, Correos de
Mexico, or Mexican Mail, is
actually a throwback to the
days of the early 20th century,
when the service was trusted
and the government built.a
main post office meant to look
like a Renaissance palace.

While there will be no hors-
es, the new postal uniform
unveiled Tuesday — a visored
cap and shirts of lime green,
hot pink and white — look like
something jockeys would wear.

wasn’t impressed.

“T think they’re focusing a
little too much on appearances
and not substance,” he said.

Mexico’s postal service deliv-
ers only about seven pieces of
mail per inhabitant per year;
Americans get an average of
700.

The low volume reflects a
lack of confidence. Federal
officials acknowledge ‘most
businesses won’t send bills,
statements or receipts through
the mail, preferring pricey but
safer private courier services,
about 4,000 of which have
sprung up here, according to
industry estimates.

American
performer:
israeli
security made
me dance.

m By JOSEF FEDERMAN
JERUSALEM

A PERFORMER with the
famed Alvin Ailey dance troupe
on Tuesday said he was twice
forced to perform steps for
Israeli airport security officers
to prove his identity before he
was permitted to enter the
country, according to the Associ-
ated Press. :

Abdur-Rahim Jackson, a
eight-year veteran of the dance
ensemble, said he was singled
out by Israel’s renowned airport
security because he has a Mus-
lim name. He called the experi-
ence embarrassing and said at
one point, one of the officers
even suggested he change his
name.

“To be greeted like this
because of my name, it took me
back a little bit,” said Jackson,
who is black.

_ Israel is the first stop on a six-
nation tour celebrating the New
York-based dance company’s ~
50th anniversary. Earlier this
year, Congress passed a resolu-
tion calling the Alvin Ailey
American Dance Theater a
“vital American cultural ambas-
sador to the world.”

Jackson said he was pulled
aside from‘other members of
the troupe when they arrived at
Israel’s international airport on
Sunday night. He said he was
taken to a holding room, where
he was asked about the origins
of his name. When he explained
he was part of the dance group,
he was asked to perform.

“T stood up. I asked what type
of dance?” he explained. “He
said, “Just do anything.’ I just
moved around.”

Minutes later, he said a
female officer put him through a
similar interrogation and asked
him to dance again.

“The only time I’m really
expected to dance is when I’m
performing,” he said.

Jackson said he received his
name because his father was a
convert to.Islam. Jackson said
he was not raised a Muslim,
does not consider himself reli-
gious and is engaged to a Jewish
woman in the troupe who has
relatives in Israel.

Jackson said he did not plan
to press the matter further, say-
ing the numerous apologies he
has received from American
dignitaries and his Israeli hosts '
is “enough for me.” The Israel
Ports Authority said it had no
comment because it did not
receive a formal complaint.

The incident was reported in
Israel’s largest newspaper and
on an Israeli television news and
interview program. “The securi-
ty guards should be sent home
or (the airport) will become a
mental asylum,” said Motti Kir-
shenbaum, a veteran commen-
tator. and host of the Channel 10
TV program.

Israel is constantly on the
alert for attack because of the
Israel-Palestinian conflict and
extremist Islamic rejection of
the Jewish state’s existence.
Security is strict at all entry
points and-inside the country.

Israel is famous for the effec-
tiveness of its airport security.
But a key element in its security
checks is ethnic profiling.

POTI, Georgia

BOMB craters scar Georgia’s
devastated naval port, and
Russian forces dig in at a
bustling base nearby. Half-emp-
ty beach resorts count the loss-
es from a ruined summer sea-
son, according to the Associated
Press.

Along the former Soviet
republic’s balmy, palm-lined
Black Sea coast, last month’s

- war with Russia has stirred

anger over Moscow’s brazen
occupation and anxiety about
the future of a country still
struggling to its feet after the
Soviet collapse.

The war broke out Aug. 7 in
South Ossetia, far to the east,
when Russia responded to a
Georgian offensive by sending
troops, tanks and warplanes that
soon drove deep into Georgian
territory.

One of the first Russian tar- —

gets was the military port at
Poti, which bore the brunt of
what Georgian officials and
shaken residents say was a mid-
night bombing raid by Russian
warplanes.

-“There were bombs falling
and explosions, and people run-

‘ ning everywhere,” said Zia Kve-

lesiani, a weathered 45-year-old
woman selling sunflower seeds
at the adjacent commercial port
as the flagship of the U.S.
Navy’s 6th Fleet anchored to
deliver humanitarian aid.

The damage was starkly clear.

The flagship of Georgia’s own
tiny naval fleet, the missile boat
Dioskuria, lay submerged at
dockside; only the top protrud-
ed from the water. Another mis-
sile boat was in pieces nearby,
and a white coast guard cutter
lolled at an awkward angle with
part of its deck under water.

A total of eight navy and
coast guard ships. were
destroyed by the Russians, who
set off explosives on board dur-
ing nearly daily intrusions at the
military port, said Capt. Lt.
Alexander Kutateladze, who
served aboard the Dioskuria.

Several small bomb craters

‘dotted the docks. Georgia’s
two-story naval headquarters
building was pocked with bullet

‘and shrapnel marks.

“One of our men was killed
in there,” Kutateladze said,
pointing at a blown-out window.

He said five serviceman were
killed and 25 were wounded in
the Russian attack.

Inside, the building had been
ransacked. A room used for
English lessons provided by a
British government agency was
a jumble of damaged desks, les-

son books and scattered papers.

Officials said five workers
were killed and 40 people
injured at the commercial port,
where walls and two towering
tanks for oil products, were
scarred by shrapnel. Two of the

Tamaz Makharadze had the
bad luck to open a hotel a few
blocks from the stony beach in
Batumi, a port and resort city, |
on Aug. 1.

“The hotel was almost full
and we were booked for the
month,” he said. F

the war began, forcing him. to
close and leaving him without
means to pay the $215,000 he
borrowed to prepare for the
opening.

Makharadze hopes the bank

pean support for Georgia will
preclude any further Russian
aggression.

“We can’t have a war every
summer, can we? God forbid,”
he said.

struct an approximate picture of the
hand held by a defender who has
entered the bidding. The attentive
declarer simply brings this picture
into focus and proceeds to take
advantage of it.

Assume you’re in three notrump
and West leads the king of spades,
which you duck. West continues with
the queen, East showing out, and you
win with the ace. You lead the J-10-5
of hearts, winning all three finesses,
and, after cashing the ace, you are

cash the A-K of clubs and, if the
queen does not appear, exit from
dummy with the ten of spades in an
effort to endplay West. This play suc-
ceeds whenever West has two or
more diamonds, which is surely a
juicier prospect than taking a finesse
in either minor suit.

In the actual case, both the prem-
ise and the promise pay off because,
after West cashes his spades, he is
forced to lead a diamond from the
king and hand you your ninth trick.

BAGHDAD, IRAQ

AS IRAQI and American diplomats negotiate
how long and under what circumstances American
troops will remain in Iraq, Iraqis are also debating
the issue, according to the c.2008 New York Times
News Service. For Iraqis, as for Americans, the
answer is far more complex than a simple “stay” or

“90.” For both it is about blood, treasure, pride, :

dignity and a nation’s sense of itself and its place in
the world. :

&
But a lot more Iraqi blood than American has .

already been spilled, and stands to be spilled again,
if the politicians get it wrong. On the streets of
Iraq the questions being asked about the continu-
ing’ American presence are about sovereignty, sta-
bility and America’s intentions in Iraq past, present
and future: How many American troops will stay?
How quickly will they go? If they stay, where will
they be based? To do what? With what powers?
And under what restrictions?

For the most part, Itaqis’ views generally fall
into, three categories. One group, which includes
many followers of the Shiite cleric Muqtada al-
Sadr, and some intensely nationalist Sunni Arabs in
parts of the country that havesuffered the worst

. Since the inyasion, simply want the Americans to

. leave, period. ‘They say no amount of American
effort now can make up for the horrors of the
occupation, including the destruction of society
and the killing of innocent civilians.

A second group takes a similarly dim view of the
occupation, but worries that the brief period this
year of improving security in Iraq will be vulnera-
ble if the Americans abruptly withdrew. They say
the United States has a moral obligation to remain,
and that continued presence of the ‘occupiers is
preferable to a return to rule by gangs and militias.
A third group worries that without a referee, Itaq’s
dominant powers — Kurds in the far north and Shi-

ites in the center and south — will brutally domi-
nate other groups. The Americans are not the first
to face such dilemmas in Iraq. In August 1920,
only two years after his declining colonial power
had emerged from the devastation of World War I,
the British secretary of war, Winston Churchill,
wrote (but did not send) a letter'to his prime min-
ister that contained this assessment of
Mesopotamia: as
“It seems to me so gratuitous that after all the
struggles of war, just when we want to get togeth-
er our slender military resources and re-establish —
our finances and have a little in hand in case of dan-
ger here or there, we should be compelled to go on
pouring armies and treasure into these thankless
deserts.” civ What

A millennium and a half earlier, in A.D. 694, the
Umayyad provincial governor Al-Hajjaj also faced
a fractious Baghdad. His response to one angry
crowd was a speech learned by all Iraqi school-
children: “I see heads before me that are ripe and
ready for the plucking, and I am the one to pluck

‘them, and I see blood glistening between the tur-

bans and the beards.” The turbans melted away.
Five years later, Al-Hajjaj faced a rebellion in a
troublesome region to his east, which forced him to
move troops from Iraq.
That rebellion was in Kabulistan, now part of

- Afghanistan, a historical parallel that drew a wry

smile from Gen. David H. Petraeus, the comman-.

’ der of American forces in Iraq, when it was point-

ed it out to him last month.

Petraeus will soon move up the chain of com- °

mand to take over the Central Command region,
making him responsible for a region that covers

_both Irag and what was Kabulistan.

Names and regimes change, but there is nothing
new under the Mesopotamian sun.

The debate goes on. Following are:some Iraqi
perspectives on whether and how American troops
should stay in their country.

spokesman. Brig. Gen. David Perkins, during a news conference at the
U.S.-protected Green Zone in Baghdad, Iraq, Sunday, Sept. 7, 2008.

THE CHOICE IS NOT OURS: AMERICA WANTS TO STAY

“J don’t expect that the Americans will leave Iraq because they reached the maximum level of political
influence in the region. America is controlling the future of energy, so I believe it’s not to America’s ben-
efit for it to leave Iraq.”

— ISMAIL KABABCHI, 38 |

a restaurant worker from central Baghdad

“America will not leave Iraq. I think my grandsons’ grandsons will watch Uncle Sam and his blue jeans.
The idea that America will depart is a kind of delusion because America came for its interests in Iraq. Iraq
represents the most important treasure in the struggle among the superpowers for it includes plenty of wealth
in addition to its important geographic location. In the long run, America will not leave Iraq because it
reached the treasure of the world.”

— SAID AL-MAJMAYI, 50

a painter in Baqouba

OR MAYBE IT DOESN'T

“I expect that the Americans will leave Iraq sooner or later because they can’t control the security situ-
ation. I expect their departure within the next few months because of the achievements of the Iraqi secu-
rity forces and the Awakening in terms of seeurity and stability. That will help the American forces leave
Iraq and save the rest of their dignity before the situation turns bad’again like between 2004 and 2005.”

— ABU ABDUL QADER AL-JUMAYLI, 60:

a retired army officer from Fallujah

“The withdrawal is coming, no doubt. America has lost its influence in Iraq to a very great and dangerous
degree. The No. 1 country in the world didn’t imagine that it would become a toy in the hand of radical par-
ties and armed groups, or some powers which will ally with America at daytime and conspire against it at
night.” . :

— MATEEN OMAR OJ, 32

a teacher from Kirkuk ;
AMERICA MUST LEAVE IRAQ NOW

“We want to push them out immediately. We don’t need them and we don’t want them. We ha. - two gov-
ernments, the Iraqi and American governments. We are confused about who we neet!'to obey, the Amer-
icans or Iraqis. And both the American and Iraqi governments are hurting the Iraqi people.”

— ABDUL RAHMAN HAMED HUSSEIN :.

a social worker in Abu Dshir, south of Baghdad, who follows the radical Shiite cleric Muqtada al-Sadr

“T want them to leave because they caused destruction for us, they have robbed us and they never gave
us any of what they had promised to give us, Ifa civil war bréaks out after their departure, it would be. their
doing. It’s going on now because of them. They are inflaming it. *’ eT

Iraqis have proved that they are not being seduced by tlie American actions. Their departure is the begin-
ning of the road toward stability. What ever happens after their-withdrawal, it will be finished within a year.”

— MUHAMMAD SNAD, 36 ;

electrical technician from Mosul

~ WEDON'T LOVE THE AMERICANS, BUT WITHDRAWAL IS WORSE

“T am not with the coalition forces’ withdrawal from Iraqi currently, because chaos and destruction will

be all over Iraq. Even before the Americans came, we used to have genocide, destruction and wars. We know .

that the’ Americans came for their own benefit, yet they are our only solution.”
' —NISREEN HASSAN, 25 Po

a teacher in Sulaimaniya at

“The presence of the American forces will make Iraq a regional and international power. If the Amer-

icans withdraw, Iraq will be subject to domination from neighboring countries which support terrorism in
Iraq to protect their interests, so the departure of the American forces doesn’t serve Iraq’s interest.”

— ABD MUHAMMAD AL-BEDEER ;

from Samawa

IF IT'S NOT THE AMERIGANS, SOMEOWE ELSE WILL TAKE OVER

“The coalition forces are the best solution to Iraq’s situation, they are just like a strong dam against the
outside and the inside enemies and even the neighboring countries. They are all wolves, the Arabs, the Per-

. sians,and the Turks.”

— JALEEL MAHMOOD, 31
Sulaimaniya ‘
“Staying is the best thing for Iraq. If the Americans depart, half of Iraq will go to the Kurds and Iran will
take the other half. We need a safety valve. America occupied Iraq and must solve the problems before its
departure: America’s departure will increase the problems”.
— AMJAD SALAH, 34

a driver from Basra . :
THE DREAM DEFERRED: PLEASE GO, JUST NOT YET

“J don’t want them to leave right now, but I don’t want to see them here forever. Soorier or later the Amer-
icans have to leave Iraq or understand that our policy differs from their policy. They have to recognize the
sovereignty of Iraq. I’d love to-keep good relations with America rather than telling bad stories to my kids
about it.” ,

— HUDA HANI, 33

a Shiite employee of the Ministry of Higher Education in Baghdad

“I’m against the Americans withdrawing before we have a fully independent government and security
forces. I witnessed many terrible things with the Americans and I don’t want the same thing to happen with
the next generations. It would be better for both sides to have a scheduled withdrawal.”

— MUHAMMAD MAHDI, 28

a Sunni graduate of the College of Arts who now works as a taxi driver in Baghdad

“No one accepts the residence of the occupier but the withdrawal should be studied well and not ran-
domly. Things are getting better now and we don’t want anything to affect that. The Americans are prob-
ably one of the reasons behind the previous chaos, but their quick withdrawal will generate bigger chaos.”

— SALIM MUHAMMAD, 40

from Najaf
SAVING NO AND MEANING YES

“All of them declare in public that they are against the Americans remaining in Iraq. They demand
Iraqi liberation. They always raise the same slogan: Independence for Iraq. But in private sessions or
meetings they are always telling me and other reporters that the Americans must stay, and that if they
leave right now it would be a big mistake. The reasons for this political hypocrisy are like a disease.
Most of the Iraqi politicians suffer from it. Their aim is to maintain their reputation in the p' “lic eye.”

— TAREQ MAHER

an employee of The New York Times in Baghdad

“In public we say we do not want American troops, but our hearts say they should stay in Iraq until
we become a state of institutions based on democracy and dialogue, not violence.

Most of our recent leaders are tiny in the political world and the Americans want to teach them how
to be leaders. Really we need them to stay more. They are a fence against Iran’s ambitions toward Iraq.”

— AHMED HASOON, 38

a teacher in Basra
NEVER MIND THE TROOPS, I'M LEAVING IRAQ

“At night in all seasons, especially in summer, it is so very, very hot because we are suffering from
electricity shortages and water shortages. So many times I have to buy my baby’s milk from the black
market. The American forces have been here for such a long time, and still it is not stable and noth-
ing is sure. Sometimes I feel that I should leave Iraq and claim asylum or refugee status, so that lat-
er on I would be lucky enough to get another nationality, which would make me feel respectable and
that I have some rights. As an Iraqi now I cannot help my country improve. But maybe later on with
a new nationality I would be able to come back and do something. Only then will my voice be
heard.” ‘

Cable’s double
digit growth

@ By NEIL HARTNELL
Tribune Business Editor

CABLE Bahamas saw steady

revenue growth across its three —
main business segments during -

the 2008 first half, with net
income increasing by 25 per
cent to $12.9 million as the com-
pany’s chairman said it was
well-placed to combat the “mar-.
ket declines” experienced to
date. .

Brendan Paddick, in his half-

’ year update to shareholders,

said the company’s core cable
television business generated 5
per cent revenue growth dur-
ing the first-six months of 2008,
when compared to the same
period in 2007.

Total revenues increased
from $21.2 million to $22.3 mil-
lion, with ‘sales of Cable
Bahamas’ Ocean Digital pre-
mium services growing by 669
set-top boxes in the second
quarter.

This, in turn, took digital box
sales for ithe 2008 first half to
3,454, a 7.7 per cent increase for
the year-to-date.

Mr Paddick said: “We can

attribute this increase in boxes

issued to our set-top box rental
programmes, which began in
Eleuthera and Abaco in May

~ 2008. The Nassau rentals gained .

an impressive 2,028 rental box-

“As a result of the damage

However, residents are able to
use their GSM and TDMA cell

is critical to the a of

$50 credit will assist our cus-

“You’ve got your costs

“In the local economy, when
sales go down and costs go up,
employees clamour for wage
rises. They can’t get it, so it
leads to increases in internal

turn to less scrupulous means to
survive.

“Business is all about cycles,
and we’re in a down cycle right
now. It will probably not
improve for another 12 months,
but I honestly believe that it
will turn round again.”

Anwer Sunderji, Fidelity
Bank (Bahamas) chief execu-
tive, yesterday said it was
“inevitable” that the pain being
felt by the business community
would spread to consumers.

“People will see shorter work
weeks, lower salaries, particu-
larly in the tourism sector,” Mr
Sunderji said.

“This year, eompared to last
year, there has been quite a
substantial and visible fall-off
in credit growth.

- “Consumers are paring back
on consumption, borrowing less
and adjusting their lifestyle to
cope with the economy. I think
people will have to adjust or
otherwise there will be a prob-

The conference is being held

ment should have given at least
60-90 days notice of its inten-
tion to raise the Tariff and
Excise duty (tax) rates on hun-
dreds of imported items, saying
this had caused problems for
construction contracts already
in place and ongoing, as they
were suddenly faced with a rise
in building materials costs.

He referred to one case
where building materials had
been ordered, only to arrive on
the dock on the same day when
the 2008-2009 Budget tax
increases took effect. The com-
pany that had ordered the mate-
rials then found itself unable to
financially meet the tax increas-
es.











Calling for better communi-
cation with the Government,
and the forging of a partnership
between it and the private sec-
tor, Mr Wrinkle urged: “Com-
municate with the contractors.
A government interface is
essential to fix this dilemma, but
at this juncture they don’t seem
inclined to do that.

“Somehow, we have to forge
a partnership with government,
and at this point we don’t have
a partnership. We have two sep-
arate entities going in different
directions, and our country can-
not succeed in that fashion.

“It manifests itself every day

“merce. Government has to

Industry

Bahamian businesses and
industry have long called for
better communication with suc-
cessive administrations, urging
that they communicate their
intentions in advance and con-
sult with them on any legisla-
tive or policy changes that might
impact the conduct of business.

Prime Minister Hubert Ingra-

will commence promptly at 10:00 a.m.

based on the number of build-
ing permits approved by the
Ministry of Works.

The Prime Minister said that
many medium-sized commer-
cial and residential develop-
ments had helped to pick up the
slack from major mixed-use
resort projects that had either
not started or slowed down.

However, in response, Mr
Wrinkle said, that while he did
not have access to all the data at
the Prime Minister’s disposal,
“we see a different picture in
the field. What we hear from
our members, suppliers and the
industry is that the volume of
work is just not there.

“On the commercial side, it’s
very slow. There’s a tremen-

dous amount of vacancies in the
island right now, with retail and
commercial office space.

“The private sector residen-
tial developments are by and
large supporting this industry
at the moment, with the build-
ing of houses in private subdi-
visions.”

But Mr Wrinkle said that giv-
en the economic downturn, and
declining asset/loan quality in
the commercial banking sector,
many institutions had tightened
their lending criteria and made
it more difficult for borrowers
to obtain mortgage financing.

“We’re not getting the same
percentage of homeowners
qualified for mortgages as there
were last year, and that’s show-

ing in the market,” Mr Wrinkle
told Tribune Business. ““There’s
nothing o provide a jumpstart

' for the industry.”

He added that the Govern-
ment was effectively the only
‘developer’ in a position to get
works started through the Lyn-
den Pindling International Air-
port and New Providence Road
Improvement projects, some-
thing that was “desperately
needed”.

Mr Wrinkle added that the
BCA was still waiting f r the
Government to supply 1 with
a list of contact numbers for for-
eign developers in the Bahamas,
so its members would have a
better chance of obtaining work

——e a a
ehman tries to soothe

Wall Street with asset sale

@ By JOE BEL BRUNO
AP Business Writer

NEW YORK (AP) — Lehman Broth-
ers, in a desperate bid to survive, announced
plans Wednesday to sell a majority stake in
its prized investment management business
and said a sale of the entire company was
possible.

Lehman, battling the nation’s worst finan-
cial crisis since the Depression, also said it

_would spin off a troubled real estate unit

and slash its dividend. Those moves come as
the nation’s fourth largest investment bank
reported an almost $4 billion third-quarter
loss, boosting its losses so far this year to

. about $¢ 35 billion.

The plan was aimed at raising capital and
regaining investor confidence in the 158-
year-old firm.

It was also seen as a reconstruction of
Lehman Brothers, which has been devas-
tated as the housing slump evolved into a
global credit crunch in the past year. Pres-
sure has been mounting on Chief Executive
Richard Fuld to save the firm from the
same fate that felled rival Bear Stearns Cos.

Fuld; the longest serving CEO on Wall
Street, rescued Lehman Brothers from the
fallout of the Russian credit crisis and col-
lapse of Long-Term Capital Management
hedge fund in the late-90s. This time, he’s
hopeful the actions will “de-risk and resize”
the company but concedes the only com-
pany he’s ever worked for could be sold

entirely.

“Tftanybody came with an attractive

proposition that was compelling for share- ,

holder ‘value, it would be brought to the
board, discussed with the board, and eval-
uated,” Fuld told investors on a conference
call. “We remain committed to examining
all strategic alternatives to maximize share-
holder value.”

The company said it will auction a 55 per
cent stake of the investment management
business, which includes fund manager Neu-
berger Berman that it bought in 2003. Fuld
said the firm was in late-stage talks with
potential buyers for the business, which
analysts value at up to $10 billion for the
entire business. °

Lehman will also spin off $25 billion to
$30 billion of commercial real estate invest-
ments into a separate publicly traded com-

gi iny, to be called Real Estate Inyestments

the new company.

Investors got more bad news after the
company slashed its dividend to 5 cents per
share from 68 cents per share in a move
that will save an estimated $450 million a
year.

The stock has plunged more than 80 per
cent this year to lows not seen in more than
a decade. It rose. 12 cents to $7.91 in late
morning trading Wednesday after falling
as low as $7.40 earlier in the session.
Lehman shares pluazed 45 per cent on
Tuesday.

Wall Street remains skittish about finan-
cial stocks since the. near-collapse of Bear
Stearns in March. Like other investment
banks, Lehman has been hit hard by dete-
rioration in the credit and mortgage markets
since the middle of 2007. Global banks have
so far lost more than $300 billion from mort-
gage-backed securities and other risky
investments.

The moyes are intended to prove to Wall
Street that the embattled bank has enough

liquidity to survive. But, there still remains |

uncertainty among analysts if the strategy
will work in the end.

__ If Lehman moves into the future without *
its investment management business, issues

regarding its future and sustainability as a
pure-play investment bank arise,” said

Cubillas Ding, a senior analyst with Boston-
based financial research and consulting firm
Celent. “Finding stable funding sources,
especially when the markets are not looking
to recover in the short-term, is an issue that
senior management needs to provide a com-
pelling solution for.”

Dirig, and other analysts, also points out
that Lehman still has exposure to a high
concentration of risk to real estate and relat-
ed investments. Lehman’s quarterly loss
includes gross write-downs of $5.3 billion on

residential mortgages and $1.7 billion on

commercial real.estate positions.

The results reflect a continued decline in
Lehman’s portfolio — in the second quarter
the company lost $2.8 billion for the period.
It earned $887 million in the third quarter a
year ago.

Lehman said it has reduced its residential

mortgage exposure by 31 per cent to $17.2.

billion, and expects its sale of $4 billion of its

UK residential mortgage portfolio to Black-

Rock. Financial Management Inc. to. be.

completed within the next few weeks.
Lehman also reduced its commercial real
estate exposure by 18 per cent in the third
quarter to $32.6 billion from $39.8 billion.
The results were released earnings a week
earlier than expected after negotiations

with Korea Development Bank about a -

capital infusion ended with no deal. That
places more pressure on Lehman to sell its
investment management business quickly.
Lehman has approached a broad range of
possible investors, including banks in Korea
and Japan. Private-equity firms in the US

have also been contacted about investing in .

the investment-management business.

Besides Neuberger Berman, the business
also includes everything from private client
services to private equity components.
There is also ‘talk that Neuberger’s man-
agement might get an opportunity to buy
back all or part of the company.

Once the biggest US underwriter of mort-

gage-backed securities, concerns about ~

Lehman began to increase after Bear
Stearns nearly collapsed in March. Bear,
once the fifth-largest US. investment bank,
avoided bankruptcy by selling itself to
JPMorgan Chase & Co.

After posting a surprise $2.8 billion loss
during the second quarter, Lehman was

' scrutinized by banks and customers about

liquidity issues, even though the company
has raised $14 billion of capital since last
year. The company also brought on new
top management t0 help boost risk man-
agement.

15% of commercial loans now in default

FROM page 1B

2007. This means that, in
increasing to $147 million, the
amount of all commercial loans
that are delinquent has
increased by 56.3 per cent -
jumping from $94 million to
$147 million - in some seven
months.

In percentage terms, that is a

rise of 5.3 per cent - going from
9.4 per cent to 14.7 per cent.

Having 14.7 per cent of total
loans in default would be
regarded as a material issue on
most individual banks’ balance
sheets, but this is a sector issue
not confined to just one insti-
tution.

In addition, Mr Sunderji said
that just over half the banking
sector’s delinquent commercial

PRACT eA

LEGAL NOTICE

International Business Companies Act _
(N*°45 of 2000)

loans - some $75 million - were
non-performing, meaning they

were 90 days or more past due. _

Describing “a very sharp
deterioration in commercial
loans”, Mr Sunderji told Tri-
bune Business: “Year-to-date,
the credit quality of commer-
cial loans has deteriorated
sharply, even though the actual
loan portfolio size has remained
at the same magnitude.

“It should be concerning to
commercial banks, definitely. I
don’t think the delinquency is
spread equally.”

Mr Sunderji said Bahamian
commercial banks collectively
had more than $300 million in

Joans that were non-perform-

ing - 90 days or more past due.
This was split into $100 million
of consumer loans, $130 million
worth or mortgages, and $75
million in commercial loans.
That totals some $305 million
worth of non-performing loans,
and Mr Sunderji said this fig-
ure had increased by $50 mil-
lion since year-end 2007.
Putting the. commercial loan
situation in context, Mr Sun-

derji said that out of $2.2 bil-
lion in outstanding consumer
loans as at July 31, 2008, some
$197 million or 14 per cent were
delinquent or more than 30 days
past due.

By way of comparison, as at
December 31, 2007, the com-
mercial banking sector had
extended $2 billion worth of
consumer loans, and some $172
million were delinquent then.

“From a percentage point of
view, it’s quite dramatic, and in
dollar terms the delinquency for
consumer loans grew by $24
million for consumer loans, and
grew by $52 for commercial
loans” since year-end 2007,” Mr
Sunderji said.

He added: “I don’t think
we’ve seen the worst yet. Clear-
ly, there’s a downturn in busi-
ness everywhere.

“But we will come out of this,
whether it’s 12 months or 18
months. The economy will
revive. It’s ‘a natural economic
cycle.”

Non-performing loans in the
Bahamian commercial banking
sector increased by $15 million

during July 2008, with delin-
quent loans growing by $70.1
million to hit the $600 million
mark, providing further evi-
dence of an increasing inability
among Bahamian businesses
and consumers to meet debt
repayments.

The Central Bank of the
Bahamas’ report on monthly
economic developments for July
2008 continued to show a dete-
riorating economic climate, with
the brunt chiefly being born by
the business sector.

For the period January-July
2008, delinquent commercial
loans - meaning those loans 31-
90 days past due - had almost
tripled against 2007 compara-
tives, growing from $52.6 mil-
lion to $147 million.

Commenting on the Central

Bank report, Ross McDonald,
the Bahamas-based Caribbean
head: for Royal Bank of Cana-
da, said: “Is it just the confir-
mation that the economy is
slowing, and times are more dif-
ficult for business people and
consumers? Yes, there’s the
confirmation. The consumer
and mortgage numbers are
trending the same way.

“We're just getting confirma-
tion of a trend that is not posi-
tive. We’re always sad to see it
happen, but we’re not surprised.
It’s disappointing, but hopeful-
ly things will get better.

“It is a cycle. We’ve had a
good cycle, and the good busi-
nesses will have ‘built up
reserves and the smart con-
sumers will have put away mon-
ey for a rainy day.”

received fewer cruise passen-

It attributed the declines to
the fact that some cruise lines

instead to use their private

amount of passengers to the
Out Islands (Half Moon Cay)

Grand Bahama saw for the
first time an increase - 2 per
cent - in cruise arrivals primar-
ily because of increased num-
bers of passengers traveling on
the Discovery Cruise Line.

This was not, however,
enough to offset the air arrival
decrease and arrivals on the
whole were down to that island,

The Princess ships that nor-

Six ways to save on prescription drugs

@ By CANDICE CHOI
AP Business Writer

NEW YORK (AP) — In
addition to changing leaves, for
many of us, fall means we’re
handed a packet of materials
and asked to ponder our med-
ical benefits as part of open
enrollment season.

So as you review your health
care budget, remember that
you may be able to save big on
prescription drugs. At two
pharmacies just a mile apart,
for example, the price of the
same medication can differ
dramatically.

That’s why doing your
homework before heading to
the drug store is just one way
to cut costs on prescription
drugs. .

As the price of prescription
drugs rises at a steady clip,
here are six tips to keep in
mind.

1. USE GENERIC
MEDICATIONS

The easiest way to cut down
on the cost of drugs is to ask
for yout prescription to be
filled with a generic version.
Despite their no-frills sound,
generic drugs are no less effec-
tive, so you should always find
out if this lower-cost option is
available.

And finding a generic alter-
native shouldn’t be tough;
generics are available for more
than three-quarters of the
11,000 federally approved

drugs on the market, according»

to the Generic Pharmacetitical
Association. Last year, generic
drugs accounted for 65 per
cent of all filled prescriptions,
up from 56 per cent in 2005.

Their growing popularity
comes as the cost prescription
drugs continues to climb. Drug
makers increased their prices
last year by an average.of 7.4
per cent, more than double the
rate of inflation, for brand-
name medicines most com-
monly prescribed to the elder-
ly, according to a study by
AARP.

2. FIND A LOWER-COST

- OPTION

Even if a generic is not avail-
able, you may still be able to”

’ find a cheaper alternative. For

example, someone with heart-
burn could save more than
$100'a month by taking over-




| BED BATH &

the-counter Prilosec instead of
Nexium, said Gail Shearer,
director of Consumer Reports
Best Buy Drugs.

Before changing medica-,
tions, of course, people should
talk to their doctors about any
impact a switch might have on
their condition.

“It’s a starting point to open
a conversation with your doc-
tor or nurse about your
options,” Shearer said. You
can find additional guidance on
lower-cost options for a range
of conditions at www.CRBest-

‘ BuyDrugs.com.

3. SHOP AROUND

Call ahead to nearby phar-
macies to get price quotes
before heading out - especially
if you’re buying a brand-name

. drug.

Several states — among them
Michigan, New Jersey and
New York — offer government-
sponsored Web sites that allow
consumers to browse prices at
area drug stores: For instance,
in New York, the health
department’s drug comparison
site,
http: //rx.nyhealth. gov/pdpw, is
updated every Monday, and
consumers can search by zip
code,

A tecent search for the sleep
aid Ambien in New York City
turned up options including
$140 for a 30-day supply at one
Walgreens and $171 at a Rite
Aid pharmacy just a mile away.

State sites are typically based

on Medicaid prices, but cheap- -

er prices for Medicaid recipi-
ents likely mean lower costs
for non-Medicaid customers
too.

Don’t overlook traditional
retailers such as Target Corp.
and Wal-Mart Stores Inc.,
which both offer $4 prescrip-
tion programs. Target offers
hundreds of generics at $4 for a
30-day supply, $10 for a 90-day
supply.

Wal-Mart’s programme fol-
lows the same pricing, but also
includes some brand-name and
over-the-counter drugs.

Other chains, including
Kroger Co. and Safeway Inc.,
have rolled out similar pro-
grammes. oe

Democrats eye offshore drilling - with strings

@ By H JOSEF HEBERT
Associated Press Writer

WASHINGTON (AP) —
With public opinion shifting
toward offshore drilling,
Democrats are looking to
defuse the volatile election issue
by allowing oil companies for
the first time to explore off the
Atlantic and Gulf coasts from
Virginia to Florida — but only
if they foot the bill for new
alternative energy programmes.

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi,
who not long ago staunchly
opposed lifting any of the off-
shore drilling bans, said Tues-

day she now supports an energy
package that would including
drilling in federal waters off the
southeastern coast. She is plan-
ning a vote that could come as
early as Friday.

“If they (the oil companies)
want to drill offshore, we’ll say
OK,” Pelosi told reporters. But
she said the bill also will require
oil companies to give up $13 bil-
lion in tax breaks and agree to
pay billions of dollars in back
royalties that were avoided
because of an Interior Depart-
ment contracting error in deep-
water drilling leases in the late
1990s.

group known as the “Gang of

coastal buffer.

Senate Majority Leader Har-
ry Reid reiterated Tuesday his
intention to take up the drilling
measures next week.

Republicans in both the Sen-

_ate and House, meanwhile, are

pushing for broader drilling.

House Republican leader
John Boehner of Ohio, called
Pelosi’s proposal “just more of
the same. It leaves most Amer-
ican energy under lock and key
when we should be doing every-
thing possible to expand energy
production.”

Off-limits areas of the Outer
Continental Shelf on both
coasts are believed to have at
least 18 billion barrels of oil,
but more than half of the
reserve is found off the West
Coast, mainly off California,
according to the Interior
Department. Mid-Atlantic
waters, however, are believed
to have large reserves of natur-
al gas as well as some oil.

Offshore drilling has gained
political momentum since GOP
presidential nominee John
McCain made it a central part
of his energy plan. At the just-
concluded GOP convention,
McCain vowed to push for end-
ing the drilling moratoria as
soon as possible, prompting del-
egates to change, “drill, baby

drill.” Sensing a shift in public
sentiment toward more domes-
tic energy development, Demo-
cratic presidential nominee
Barack Obama has also said he
is open to limited expansion of
offshore drilling.

Congressional Republicans
want to lift all of the drilling
bans that cover the Outer Con-
tinental Shelf waters 50 miles
from shore from New England
to Washington states. Oil and
gas drilling has been allowed
for decades in the western Gulf
of Mexico where US offshore
energy production has concen-
trated.

But Republican leaders are
adamantly opposed to addi-
tional taxes on oil companies.
They repeatedly have blocked
proposals that would rescind oil
industry. tax breaks, arguing that

would inhibit domestic oil pro-
duction.

A possible. compromise
worked out in the Senate by a
group headed by Democratic
Senator Kent Conrad of North
Dakota and Republican Sen.
Saxby Chambliss of Georgia —
the Gang of Ten as it is dubbed
— calls for both limited offshore
drilling and taxing Big Oil, while
funneling billions of dollars into
renewable energy.

Republican leaders have not
embraced the compromise.

“It’s the only (approach) that
has a realistic chance of getting
60 votes,” said Senator John
Thune, R-SD, one of the “Gang
of Ten”, making clear that no
matter that whatever the energy
plan, it will need that much sup-
port to overcome a certain Sen-

THE TRIBUNE

@ By BRIAN SKOLOFF
Associated Press Writer

WEST PALM BEACH,
Florida (AP) — A gigantic land
deal for a territory larger than
the city of Chicago, intended to
help restore the dying Ever-
glades, has been delayed as both
sides work out details of the
proposal for the state to buy
some 300 square miles from US
Sugar Corporation, officials said
Wednesday.

Declaring the proposal “as
monumental as the creation of
our nation’s first national park,”
Republican Governor Charlie
Crist made the announcement
about the deal in June while
standing in the Everglades.

The initial announcement
said the state would buy some
300 square miles of US Sugar’s
holdings in the Everglades
south of Lake Okeechobee,
including its cane fields, mill,
refining facilities, citrus groves,
and railroad line.

US Sugar would be allowed
to farm the 187,000 acres for six
more years, after which it would

’ go out of business, leaving some

1,700 workers unemployed.

The state would then protect
the land from development,
which has been encroaching on
the Everglades for decades.

Officials said in June they
planned to sign a contract on
the deal by November.

It likely won’t happen now

until sometime in 2009, accord-
ing to officials with the South
Florida Water Management
District, which oversees Ever-
glades restoration for the state.

The district had planned to
borrow the money through
bonds for the deal and pay off
the debt with property taxes
from its 16 county region
stretching from Orlando to the
Keys.

Officials now say they are
hoping to negotiate simultane-
ous. sales of some of US, Sug-
ar’s assets, such as its mill and
railroad, before completing the
sale. They also say they are
seeking partners in the pur-
chase.

“The word is out on the street

’ and they know that we will not

be holding onto these assets,”
Ruth Clements, the district’s
director of land acquisition, told
board members on Wednesday:

doing business in the Bahamas. Hospital managementnd the Board of Directors continue to monitor

rising costs; and in light of increasing costs to acruit and retain healthcare and other specialized

_ professionals, rising utility costs, and the outlay tocontinuously improve patient and employee safety,

THE TRIBUNE





British PM

@ By DAVID STRINGER
Associated Press Writer

LONDON (AP) — British
Prime Minister Gordon Brown
yesterday denied he was
endorsing Barack Obama,
despite praising the Democra-
tic presidential candidate in a
published commentary.

In the commentary pub-
lished Wednesday, Brown
praised Obama’s proposals for
a mortgage foreclosure pre-
vention fund and said he
believed Democrats offered
stronger policies for a difficult
economy.

“In the electrifying US pres-
idential campaign, it is the
Democrats who are generat-
ing the ideas to help people
through more difficult times,”
Brown wrote in Parliamentary
Monitor magazine, a monthly
publication that covers parlia-
mentary and government
issues.

“To help prevent people
from losing their home, Barack
Obama has proposed a fore-
closure prevention fund to
increase emergency pre-fore-
closure counseling, and help
families facing repossession.”

Brown’s Labour Party is tra-
‘ditionally allied to Obama’s
Democrats — but under inter-
national conventions, foreign
leaders refrain from interven-
ing in ballots overseas.

Brown later denied he had
breached protocol and said he
was not endorsing anyone.

“T am very proud to know
both Senator (John) McCain
and Senator Obama and I
leave that decision rightly with
the American people,” Brown
said at a news.conference with
Italica Premier Silvio Berlus-
cio.

The Italian leader said Euro-
peans would work in coopera-
tion with whichever candidate
becomes the next US presi-
dent.

“It would be totally absurd

Downing Street in London to receive Italian Prime Minister Silvio

Berlusconi on Wednesday...

to expose ourselves by saying
we prefer someone over some-
one else,” Berlusconi said.

Brown did not comment on
the content of his article at the
news conference. -

In meetings with both Oba-
ma and McCain, Brown has
gone to great lengths to appear
impartial.

During separate visits to
London by the candidates,
Brown refused to greet the
men on the doorstep of his
official residence — an honour
reserved only for elected heads
of government.

But Britain’s main opposi-
tion Conservative Party said
Brown was guilty of a serious
gaffe.

“A responsible British prime
minister needs to be ready to
work with either presidential
candidate after the US elec-
tion, and should neither take

sides nor be seen to be taking
sides,” said Conservative law-
maker William Hague, a for-
mer leader of the party.

McCain’s' spokesman
Michael Goldfarb dismissed
the apparent backing for Oba-
ma in a Web posting titled
“The Coveted Gordon Brown
Endorsement.”

He claimed that in praising
Obama’s housing strategy,
Brown had in fact highlighted
a policy that the Democratic
Party candidate appeared to
have recently dropped.

Jason Furman, Obama’s
economic policy director, told
the AP on Wednesday that the
foreclosure relief fund had not
been shelved.

“It is still an Obama pro-
posal and still on our Web
site,” .said Furman. He
declined to comment on
Brown’s praise. .

US budget deficit
praises Obama _ closing on $500bn

@ By ANDREW TAYLOR
Associated Press Writer

WASHINGTON (AP) —
Amid fresh predictions that

. the economic slump will con-

tinue into next year, Democ-
rats on Tuesday renewed a
promise to try.to advance a
heavy-spending economic
stimulus plan before Election
Day. ,

The effort, however, is
infused with election-year pol-
itics and was rejected by the
White House, which believes
it to be wasteful and unpro-
ductive. ;

The still-emerging Democ-
ratic plan would pile more
than $50 billion worth of new
spending on roads, heating’
subsidies, aid to state govern-
ments and a further extension
of unemployment benefits
onto a deficit for next year
that is already likely to near
$500 billion. Loan guarantees
for the troubled auto industry

‘are also on the table.

“I would be surprised to see
a package that would be less
than, you know, $50 billion to’
$75: billion,” said Senator
Charles Schumer, D-N.Y.

Unlike a collaborative effort

‘early this year to enact tax

rebates for consumers and tax
breaks for business, there’s
been virtually no good-faith
negotiation between Democ-
rats controlling Congress and
the White House over the

contours of a possible compro-

mise.

Instead, the Democratic. ,
effort appears aimed in large
part in casting Republicans —
and GOP presidential nomi-
nee John McCain — as out of
touch on the economy.

“Middle class families are
not fools. They know that the
economy is not strong,”
Schumer said.'“But apparently
the president, his Republican
allies in Congress, and John
McCain do not.”

At the same time, new

MORTGAGES * MUTUAL FUNDS « LIFE INSURANCE
HEALTH INSURANCE * ANNUITIES & PENSION PLANS
FINANCIAL PLANNING & INVESTMENTS

deficit and economic estimates
released by the Congressional
Budget Office on Tuesday
brought fresh evidence of the
nation’s worsening fiscal pic-
ture and predictions of an
economy that could slide into
recession.

The federal government will
run a near-record deficit of
$407 billion this year, CBO
said, with the deficit for 2009
reaching $438 billion — and
could go even higher as the
government takes over mort-
gage giants Fannie Mae and
Freddie Mac and if Congress,
as expected, devotes more
than $60 billion to fix the
alternative minimum tax to
make sure more and more
middle class families aren’t hit

by it.

The worsening deficit is
largely due to continuing
weakness in the economy,

_ high energy and food prices,

and the slump in the housing
and financial markets, CBO
said. And the economy could
still slide into a recession,
according to the forecast.

“The economy is likely to
experience at least several
more months of very slow. -
growth,” the CBO report said.
“Whether this period will ulti-
mately be designated a reces-
sion or not is still uncertain,
but the increase in the unem-
ployment rate and the pace of
economic growth are similar
to conditions during previous
periods of mild recession.”

The CBO predicts that the
economy will grow 1.5 per
cent this year in real terms and
slip to just 1.1 per cent growth
in 2009.

CBO’s gloomy outlook was

_seconded by Harvard Univer-

sity economist Lawrence Sum-
mers and Allen Sinai, chief
economist for Decision Eco-
nomics, Inc., in testimony
before the House Budget
Committee.

““Thestate of the US econo-
my is a recession or recession-

like conditions,” Sinai said,
adding that boosts in inflation
could herald the return of the
so-called stagflation experi-
enced in the late-1970s and
early 1980s.

Summers, a former secre-
tary of Treasury in the Clinton
administration, backed the
idea of a second stimulus bill

. following the outlines pro-

posed by Democratic leaders:
aid to states; home heating
subsidies; food stamp., infra-
structure projects and unem-
ployment benefits.

In all likelihood, Summers
said, the US economy is “a

“year or so away froma

resumption of strong econom-
ic growth.”

The White House and con-
gressional Republicans are
resisting the idea of a new
stimulus bill and instead want
other legislation, including an
energy bill that would open
the Outer continental shelf to
oil and gas drilling and free
trade agreements with Pana-
ma, Colombia and South
Korea, to help the economy.

“We’re not talking about a
stimulus package,” White
House Press Secretary Dana
Perino told reporters.

It’s not clear that Democ-
rats will even be.able to pass a
stimulus bill. Moderate “Blue
Dog” Democrats recoiled at
the new deficit figures and
have vowed that any new
steps to stimulate the econo-
my must not add to the red
ink.

_. Béyond the bleak short-
term prospects for the Democ-
rats’ stimulus bill, the new
deficit numbers promise to
force the next president,
whether it’s Democrat Barack
Obama or GOP nominee John
McCain, to scale back agenda
items like new tax cuts.

The agency’s latest estimate
of total appropriations since
2001 to fight terrorism and for
operations in Iraq and.
Afghanistan is $858 billion.
