Mass
exodus
if salt
firm
closed

‘ FEARS are growing in
Inagua that the possible closure
of the storm-blasted Morton
Salt plant could lead to depop-
ulation of the island.
Locals believe there would
be a mass exodus if the salt
plant - foundation of Inagua’s
economy for.70 years - ceased
production.
“People are worried,” said
’ resident Ms Janice McKinney,
“What else would people do for
a living here? We can’t grow
anything much. People would
have to leave.”

Morton Salt’s managing
director Glenn Bannister
agreed that. many residents
would have to seek work else-
where if Inagua’s only industry
was closed down in the wake of
Hurricane Ike.

That would leave Inagua — a
large flat island known primar-
ily for its birdlife and salt pans
— with only a scattering of old
folk and subsistence fishermen.

According to locals, it would
be finished as a “viable” com-
munity.

Today, loss adjusters are vis-
iting Inagua to assess damage
to the salt plant, which suffered
badly as it took the brunt of
Ike’s 130mph-winds.

Not only was the roof blown
off the 1930s maintenance shed,
the plant lost part of its dock
and at least 5,000 tons of salt,
which blew off stockpiles back
into the sea.

_The powerful winds also
_damaged Morton property in
Mathew Town itself, causing
one block-built warehouse to
explode.

“Blocks were actually flying
through the air,” said Mr Ban-
nister, “The wind got inside the
building and couldn’t get out.
When that happened, people
taking refuge in the Morton
guesthouse across the road real-
ly began to wonder what was
happening.”

The steeple was blown off St
Philip’s Anglican Church and a

First building materials
shipment off to Inagua



mâ„¢ By MEGAN REYNOLDS
Tribune Staff Reporter.

THE FIRST shipment of building materials
was sent to Inagua yesterday to help rebuild the
island in the aftermath of Hurricane Ike.

The National Emergency Management
Agency (NEMA) arranged for the plywood
and roofing supplies from FYP Builders Mall,
The Tile King and Paint Centre on Wulff Road
to be shipped from Potters Cay on the-vessel my
VI-Nais. The $100,000 donation of supplies
from the companies is being coordinated by
Mr Mark Roberts.

poles and supplies from the Bahamas Telecom-
munications Company (BTC) were also loaded
onto the ship.

Mark Roberts, coordinator of the group of
companies, said: "We have everything they
need to get back in shape."

NEMA will be delivering supplies on the
ground in Inagua.

Commander Stephen Russell, director of
NEMA, said the supplies will be a tremendous
help to those whose homes were destroyed by
the category four hurricane on Sunday.

"There were 300 structures damaged, many
had roof damage, so this will help us in a great
way. It will all be off-loaded on Sunday after-
noon, so we will be ready to distribute it on

hits business
on Bimini

â„¢ By TANEKA THOMPSON
- Tribune Staff Reporter
tthompson@tribunemedia.net

THE drastic rise in BEC's
fuel surcharge is hurting small
businesses on Bimini with
reports that one eatery has
closed because of skyrocketing
fees and others have been
forced to cut staff and operating
hours to stay open.

Although earlier in the week
Phenton Neymour, State Min-
ister for the Environment, said
customers should expect a
reduction in electricity bills in
late September, as the costly
surcharge is expected to
decrease, Bimini residents were
not impressed, saying they've
heard that before.

Island Administrator Sher-
rick Ellis rented shop space to
the owner of Corrit's Deli, who,
he said, was forced to close
because the deli's electricity bills
were higher than its rental fees.
He added that the problem is
badly affecting many on the
island.

"According to a few people
that I spoke with they are saying
that their fuel surcharge is three
times the amount of the actual
bill itself. This is something now
that the average household is

suffering with because of fuel
surcharge. To tell you the truth
I-don't know how they coping
with it, because it's kind of
rough right now."

"A lot of people (are saying)
their light bill is $800 plus a
month, people's light bill: this
month is higher than their mort-
gage. Just an average deli is pay-
ing over $3,000 (in BEC bills),"
Mr Ellis said.

The owner of CJ's Deli in
Alice Town, who asked to have
their name withheld, said rising
fuel surcharges forced manage-
ment to cut their staff and
reduce opening hours.

"They said that before when
they said the fuel surcharges
went, and my bill still was
$1,600, $1,700 or something so I
don't know. This month I paid
them $3,433.51 and the fuel
(sur)charges on that was over
$2,082.72," owner of CJ's Deli
in Alice Town said yesterday.

"Last month I paid $2,714
and the fuel (sur)charges out of
that were $1,522 — which in
they say the kilowatts what I
burn was only $920. So it's the
fuel charges what's killing me".

With the high fuel surcharge

and assist in a major hurricane
relief drive to help those on the
stricken island who were hit by
four major storms in the space
of a month.

tion with the Methodist Church
and other local organisations
and businesses are asking peo-
ple to bring donations of items

like household goods, clothing .

or toys which can be sent to the
country to replace that which
the people have lost.

“After being affected by four
consecutive storms, thousands
in Haiti have lost their homes,

“The church is forming part-
nership with airlines and ship-
ping companies to transport
relief aid to Haiti, so all we need
now is for the hearts of Bahami-
ans to be touched and want to
donate items to the Emergency
Haitian Relief Effort,” said
Henry Knowles, of the
Bahamas Conference of the
Methodist Church.

The Methodist Habitat
organisation will also be assist-
ing in the repair and recon-
struction of homes in Inagua

Haiti as being in “even more
severe humanitarian need.”

A depot has been set up to
receive the items at the Queens

to refrain from donating large
items,” cautioned Mr Knowles.

The church also asks that per-
sons also ensure that clothing
and other items are in good
condition and that they are pre-

alvation Army donates

to Inagua storm relief

DONATIONS are pouring into the
National Emergency Management Agency
(NEMA) operations centre, as the Hurri-
cane Ike relief effort for residents of Math-

ew Town, Inagua continues.

Commander Stephen Russell, director of
NEMA, reiterated his appeal to residents
and corporate Bahamas to donate supplies
to the residents, whose homes and other
properties were damaged by the category
four Hurricane Ike when it struck the island

on Sunday, September 7.

Ministry puts
accident spot
under focus

AN ACCIDENT black spot
is under surveillance by the
Ministry of Works after yet
another smash was highlighted
in The Tribune.

Cars crash into the fence:

around Hammerheads Bar and
Grill on East Bay Street almost
every weekend, says manager
Sheila Pritchard, who estimates
there have been about 30 acci-

dents in the area in the two

years she has worked there.

Ms Pritchard thinks crashes
are caused by drivers who speed
past green lights at the junction
with Dowdeswell Street,
Church Sireet, and the new Par-
adise Island bridge, and lose
control at a dip in the road
between the new tarmac and
the old, crashing into Hammer-
heads or the Elizabeth 'Betty'
Cole park across East Bay
Street.

Basketball players fill the
court in the Betty Cole Park
almost every evening, and
Hammerheads patio is often
filled with customers.

Howard Barnett from the
Ministry of Works surveyed the

road on two days this week to
assess the cause of the accidents.

He discounted the dip in the
road as a danger, but believes it
is more to do with speeding into
the road bend. And statistics
show accidents have been
occurring in the area long
before the new bridge was built.

Mr Barnett said: "My obser-
vation is that the accidents by
the bar are well clear of the
intersection so I don't think the
dip is the cause.

“When the light is green they
come through the intersection

faster than when there is traffic '

or it has been red.

"If you are observing the
speed limit you shouldn't have a
problem but there is a bend in
the road, and it sometimes
means people are breaking and
lose contro! when they are not
driving within the speed limit."

Mr Barnett said he would dis-
cuss the possibilities for improv-
ing road safety with his team
and explore the need for

improved engineering, signage

and enforcement of the speed
limit.

kon Thursday, NEMA accepted a number
of donations from the Salvation Army.
Thosé items included 54 mops; 83 buckets
of cleaning kits; 30 cases of sugar; 28 cases

-of corned beef; 28 cases of sardines.

The Royal Bahamas Defence Force ves-
sel, HMBS Yellow Elder, on Thursday took
the items to the island for immediate dis-
tribution to residents. Donations of simi-
Jar items can be dropped off at the Salvation
Army located on Mackey Street.

The Salvation Army said it also will be

collecting funds to aid the hurricane vic-
tims in Inagua.

NEMA’s list of relief items for Inagua
includes generators, tarpaulin, felt, cots and
blankets.

Commander Russell is also appealing
for volunteers to assist in the relief, restora-
tion and reconstruction efforts.

Persons can also donate to the National
Disaster Relief Fund, account No. 1281013
at the Royal Bank of Canada, main branch,
Bay Street.

Man bailed on underage sex charge

A 30-year-old Lincoln Boule-
vard man accused of having sex
with an 11-year-old girl was
arraigned in Magistrate’s Court.

According to court dockets, it
is alleged that Kendrick Mar-
vin Rolle committed the offence
sometime during the month of
August.

Rolle, who was arraigned
before Magistrate Linda Virgill
at Court 9 in Nassau Street, was
not required to plead to the
charge.

He was granted bail in the
sum of $20,000 with two
sureties. The case was
adjourned to November 5 and

A man was sentenced to two
years in prison yesterday on
weapons and ammunitions
charges.

Court dockets allege that
Jeremy Kemp, 22, of Brougham
Street was found with a
Makarov 9mm pistol and eight
live rounds of 9min ammuni-
tion on Friday, November 3,
2006.

Kemp, who stood trial on the
charges, was convicted and sen-
tenced yesterday to one year in

ask: What

about us?

By LLOYD ALLEN

LOCAL Haitians are ask- |
ing when the Bahamas will
step forward in offering any
aid to ravaged Haiti, after
the country was severely hit
by a slew of storms. |

First Gustav, then Han-
na, then Ike — the country
of Haiti was battered by
these hurricanes, suffering
structural damage, floods,
and an ever increasing death
toll.

Local lawyer and Haitian
activist Elizier Regnier says
that although he is very
sympathetic to persons in
Inagua who were severely
affected by Hurricane Han-
na and Ike, and the govern-
ment of the Bahamas is
obligated to ensuring the
dispatch of relief efforts
there first, “What about

“Haiti?”

He argued that although
there is a large local Haitian
population in the Bahamas,
there appears to be a local
attitude which indicates an
indifference to sending
efforts to Haiti.

Mr Regnier noted that
even before the storms, the
country had been undergo-
ing consistent economic

challenges. .

He said that people espe-
cially in Gonaives, Haiti—a

-town which has been heavi-

ly damaged by flood waters
— are dying in large num-
bers due to this infrastruc-
tural unbalance.

For many persons living

there only means of sur-
vival, the lawyer said.

Mr Regnier said although
he is confident that Prime
Minister Hubert Ingraham
will keep his promise to
send aid to Haiti, he hopes
relief arrives sooner than
later, as the death count
there continues to increase.

Reverend Allan Lavern
of the Hearts for Haiti
organisation, says his organ-
isation is currently planning
to send two large contain-
ers filled with water, clothes,
and food to the impover-
ished nation.

He also indicated that a
pcvss conference will be
held on Tuesday next week
at the Catholic Archbishops |
office, where a plea will be
sent to Bahamians for dona-
tions of any kind to be sent
to the country.

United Nations UNICEF
director of emergency pro-
grammes Louis-Georges
Arsenault said in a recent
interview that the death rate
in the country is constantly
rising due to the lack of
clean water, and shelter.

“The issue that we are
facing now in Haiti is access,
It was only up to Septem-
ber 10 that we were able to
start moving into that
region,” said Mr Arsenault. |

IT IS WELL past time for Sarah Palin,
Republican running mate, governor of Alaska
and self-proclaimed reformer, to fill in for the
voting public the gaping blanks about her record
and qualifications to be vice president.

The best way to do that would be exactly
what the campaign of John McCain is avoiding
— an honest news conference. Instead, she has
been the bell-jar candidate, barnstorming safe
crowds with socko punch lines and plans for a
single interview on ABC News built around a
visit to Fairbanks, Alaska, and her hometown of
Wasilla.

Just in time for that appearance, Palin, who
was proclaiming her family’s privacy a week
ago, will make a political event out of her son’s
deployment to Iraq. But as for talking to
reporters in general, the McCain campaign sniff-
ishly says they must fist show “some level of
respect and deference.”

That is a peculiar response for someone who
is campaigning as one tough, transparent politi-
cian who can take the heat.

Why not some detailed questioning? With
deference, we believe many questions will arise
about this largely unknown politician as
reporters properly search beyond the whole-
some anecdotes.

Palin is positioning herself as the kind of politi-
cian who knows. how to manage the people’s
money. She got a big cheer from the Republican

$9.3 million for Mudd and at least $14.1 million
for Syron) unless a federal regulator sensibly
says no.

Neither should be rewarded any more than
they already have been for their failures.

This is the same Mudd and Syron who presided
over the near total wipeout of Fannie and Fred-
die’s shareholders and whose mismanagement
of the mortgage-finance companies has led to
what could become the biggest federal bailout in
American history. te

The severance would come on top of $12.4
million in salary, bonuses and stock-option prof-
its that Mudd has taken home since becoming
Fannie’s chief executive in 2004, according to
Equilar research. Syron also made out big, col-
lecting $17.1 million since he took charge of Fred-
die in 2003.

In search of Governor Palin

convention when McCain said she had put the
Alaska goyernor’s private plane on eBay.

The running mates both failed to mention |

that it did not sell on eBay and that she unloaded
it later to a businessman for a $600,000 loss.
The Chicago Tribune reported that the majori-
ty of the plane’s time was used to transport pris-.

oners from Alaska’s crowded jails to Arizona, a

job now done by federal marshals.
All of which made it vexing to read the dis-
closure by The Washington Post that Palin billed

Alaska taxpayers for more than 300 nights that

she spent at home in her first 18 months in office.
The campaign claims the $60-a-day allowance is
proper, and various states do have differing per-
diem approaches. But voters ought to hear the
candidate answering such questions, not for pur-
poses of petty quibbling, but to help fill out their
skimpy sense of who Palin actually is. She could
explain, as well, why she was for the Bridge to
Nowhere when it was first proposed and
réversed field once it became a symbol of leg-
islative abuse. Even then, the governor helped
cycle the $223 million in federal pork to other

“. state needs.

Voters have a right to hear Palin explain in
detail her qualifications to be standby president
with no national or foreign policy experience.

More is required of any serious candidate for
such a high office than one interview with ques-
tions put by one selected source.

Nice work if you can get it

Lockhart of the Federal Housing Finance ©

Agency, had not yet decided on the payments.
The two men do not bear sole responsibility for
the costly demise of Fannie and Freddie. Wide-
spread regulatory failure allowed the housing
bubble to inflate. And Conzress also failed in its
duty to oversee the companies.
But shared blame is still blame. And as the

chief executives, Mudd and Syron are much to -

blame.

We don’t minimize the difficulty of their jobs:
they had to make profits for their shareholders
while also serving the public by providing a steady
stream of funds to expand home ownership.

They ‘failed to achieve any prudent balance. |

Instead, they took risks that boosted near-term
profits while feeding the housing bubble that has
now burst with such dire consequences for so
many Americans. —

Mudd and Syron are at the centre of an epic
failure. Taxpayers should not be required to give
them a consolation prize on their way out.

EDITORIAL/LETTERS TO THE EDITOR

Reforming

~THE TRIBUNE

ur UNION
pensions

EDITOR, The Tribune.

My dear brothers and sisters
of the Bahamas, after reading
an article on June 28th in The
Nassau Guardian about the dis-
pute of funds at the Nassau
Supermarket and warehouse
union, also the article in The
Bahama Journal on August
26th about Justice Adderley

ordering the Hotei Workers:

Union to be audited and await-
ing the results of the indepen-
dent audit from HLB Galanis
Bain accounting firm. These
articles support and confirm my
concern when having my letter

and radio advertisements in The .

Tribune, Nassau Guardian, The
Punch, Island FM, and Love 97
FM from last year, August 2007,
until presently, September 2008,
requesting the government to
implement accountability, reg-
ulation and reform for all work-
ers’ pension union funds in the

Bahamas. ,

It.is extremely urgent for the
government to have these
guidelines to ensure credibility
and assurance for every

_ Bahamian union worker so that:

they can be confident of col-
lecting a pension cheque upon
retiring or being laid off from
work as happened recently with

the 47 employees terminated |

from the Crystal Palace Hotel in
August 2008 and people losing

their homes in these real hard
economic times. I strongly rec-
ommend that government have
an independent company audit
all union pension funds every
year to bring about transparen-
cy and not secrecy. This system
is presently in place in most
American pension fund com-

_ panies to protect members’

money and ensure it is there
when it is time to collect a pen-
sion.

I would like to share my per-
sonal story as a member of the
Hotel, Pension Management
Fund.

First to clarify their discrimi-
nation policy. If they decide to
choose who to pay and not to
pay by excluding some people
from receiving their pension
cheque before age 65 years old
when leaving the hotel indus-

- try then having other people

qualify to receive a pension
cheque based again on a num-
ber of years employed at the
hotel. This is simply and clearly
discrimination. If everyone had
to wait until age 65 to receive
their pension, then I would not
have been looking to receive
mine like my brothers were able

to do, in receiving all of the
money saved in their pension
funds after their tenure with the
hotel. This was a cheque pay-

ment of all money saved in their :

pension fund. The mistake that

the Hotel Pension Management —

Fund made in regards to this
matter was that they had
already paid my brothers. We
all worked for the same hotel
and department on Paradise

‘Island in the 1980’s. For the

record none of them are 65
years old and we are no longer
working in the hotel industry.
So I was surprised and shocked
when they refused to give me
my pension cheque in August
2007. I then decided that in
order for change to happen you
must be prepared to fight for it.
I am the voice for the voiceless,
David against Goliath, The Peo-
ple’s Champion for Justice
against the Hotel Pension. Man-
agement Fund located on West
Bay Street. °

I wanted to inform, educate,
expose and:share this experi-
ence with the Bahamian peo-
ple in the media so if anyone
hada similar experience they
could write a letter to the editor
of the newspaper.

PEDRO SMITH
New York, —
September, 2008.

Is Moss a fertile
choice for PLP?

EDITOR, The Tribune.

During the last three years or so, Attorney
Paul David Moss has emerged within circles with-
in the great and iconic Progressive Liberal Party
(PLP) as a fairly young man to be reckoned with.
Clearly, he is highly educated; focused and moti-
vated by a zeal to ‘do right by the common man
and womaii’.

While these traits, ordinarily, are no guarantees
that Moss will ever be able to enter the hallowed
halls of parliament, one, especially who may be a
student of Bahamian political and anthropologi-

cal history, could easily caution him that they.

may well turn out to be like an Albatross around
his neck and career as a politician within the
PLP. ' é
Moss, a talented and Croseus like barrister-at-
law, appears, oftentimes, to be an enigma

wrapped up in a puzzle, to quote the venerable Sir_
- Winston Churchill, former thrice Prime Minis-

ter of the United Kingdom of Great Britain.

As an upper middle class scion of a long polit-
ically-orientated family (his late father, Paul Moss
Sr was the founder and proprietor of a chain of
grocery stores in the inner city areas of New
Providence when it was difficult for a black man
to own anything of value in The Bahamas), Moss
could simply rest on his laurels and say to hell
with the masses of the residents of St Cecilia.

Instead, at what must be a great financial and

- personal sacrifice Moss has declared that he is on

a mission to rescue the disorientated Progressive

Liberal Party (PLP) and holds himself out to be |

the great hope for it’s return to high office. While
I wish him well in what appears to be an exercise
similar to that of Don Quixote, Moss is deadly
serious about advancing up the greasy pole.

Moss will, however, have to first slay the drag-
ons of indifference; cannibalism; myopic and
xenophobic which are joined to the hip with the
PLP. He holds himself out to be the ‘Obama’ for
his party, but, like Senator Hillary Clinton found
out, the hard way, perception is not always real-
ity.

Leadership ‘out of the box’ is crucial to the

return.of the PLP to high office. Indeed, the

fabled King of Macedonia, Philip I, once opined:
“An army of deer led by a lion is more to be
feared than an army of lions led by a deer.” Moss
says that he is ‘the man’ and we should call his
political bluff. Once St Cecilia would have sent
Moss to the House of Assembly, we will see of
what stuff he is made off. Until then, to God be
the glory in all things.

ORTLAND

H BODIE JR
Nassau,
September 9, 2008.

(The correct quote of Sir Winston Churchill
made in reference to Russia, and to which Mr
Bodie refers in his letter, is:

(“It is a a riddle wrapped in a mystery inside an
engima.” — Ed).

Our politicians must

put their family first

EDITOR, The Tribune.

The theme at the Democrat-
ic National Convention was not
family first but the subtle mes-
sage sent was that politicians
who pretend to serve people
should be family oriented. In
fact they should be married, for
more reasons than not.

The DNC paraded family of
the Presidential and Vice Pres-
idential nominees, the Kennedy
family, Senator Claire

McCaskill family and others. —

This clear message is designed
to say unequivocally that when
you have a family, you are more
sensitive to the needs of moth-
ers, children and fathers. It said
that you are responsible.

A strong family is an ingredi-
ent for a strong community and
certainly a strong country.
Politicians and those with aspi-
rations to be should all be fam-
ily persons. It is uncomfortable

for a single male person to
expect to be invited into the
homes of families, young ladies
and single mothers. Believe it
or not it is even risky to have
our innocent young sons
exposed to some single politi-
cians. The temptation is simply
too great for mischief and
potential exploitation.

A single male should be sus-
pect for other reasons too
numerous to mention. The lev-
el of sensitivity is different when
there has been no experience

in family matters. You need

your own family, not your
mother and father, brothers, sis-
ters, nieces and nephews.

Men who never experience
how it feels to come home to a
wife, who would help him clear
his head of all of the stresses of
the day, would never under-
stand how family works. There
is absolutely no substitute, none
whatsoever.

The Bahamas, like the United
States, should move with
extreme haste to make one of
the criteria for running in an
election to be that all candidates
must be married. If we are seri-
ous about building a better
Bahamas then we must
embrace this necessary practice.

The Bahamian political land-
scape has been littered with sin-
gle men who have no children
and no wife and expect to be
received the same way married
people are.

If the PLP are serious then
they would eliminate all who
are single that are vying for the
top positions. I know this will
cause some “shotgun” weddings
to happen in the next five sec-
onds. We will see who runs
down the aisle first.

THE Chinese Embassy on Village Road will be closed on

The festival has a long history in China.

In the past, emperors followed the rite of offering sacrifices
to the sun in spring, and to the moon in autumn.

By.the Tang Dynasty (618-907), the Mid-Autumn Festival
had been fixed, and became even grander-in the Song
Dynasty (960-1279). In the Ming (1368-1644) and Qing

GB linesmen sent to aid in
ower restoration in Inagua

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

FREEPORT -_ Grand
Bahama Power Company has
sent crew of four linesmen to
Inagua to assist BEC with its
power restoration efforts on that
island.

Excell Ferrell, Power Compa-
ny CEO, and Derek King, direc-
tor of transmission and distribu-
tion, said they are very pleased
to be able to lend assistance to
BEC and the residents of
Inagua.

“We are very saddened by the
devastation and we are sending
four of our finest linesmen to
assist with restoration on the
island,” Mr Ferrell said on Fri-
day during the send-off at the
Regional Air terminal.

Team leader Patrick Laing,
along with Samuel Rolle, Andre
Spence, and Arthur Spencer will
be in Inagua for about two to
three weeks helping to rebuild

the entire power infrastructure, .

which was destroyed by Hurri-
cane Ike.

Mr Laing said his team will
assist with erecting new poles,
stringing new wires, and
installing conductors, among
other things.

“My colleagues and I are very
excited to be going over to help
restore power for residents as
quick as possible,” he said.

Mr King said their team is
ready for the tremendous task
ahead in Inagua.

“We are satisfied that our
highly qualified team is capable
of making a significant contri-
bution to the restoration efforts.

“We have been in contact with
Kevin Basden at BEC and Glen
Bannister at Morton Salt about
accommodations for our men
because we did not want them to
go down-there and not have any
living accommodations,” he said.

Mr Ferrell said the GBPC is
very thankful to BEC for its
assistance in 2004 following the
two hurricanes on Grand
Bahama.

“Co-operation during emer-
gencies is one of the hallmarks of
the Caribbean community, and
in that spirit GB Power is
pleased to be able to assist them
with their restoration.

“It was not long ago Grand
Bahama residents were in a sim-
ilar situation and BEC lent assis-
tance to us in our time of need.
They were quick to respond and
participated in our restoration
efforts, and we are pleased to be
able to reciprocate with that
help, he said.

Mr Ferrell said that the com-
pany is also sending materials
with its crew to assist with the
restoration.

“The cost will be something
less than $10,000 for the materi-
als they will need to begin restor-
ing power,” he said.

Inagua cannot be
sustained without
Morton’s presence

FROM page one

children’s playground was
wiped out.

Another church belonging to
the Church of God of Prophecy
collapsed, leaving a decorated
altar exposed to the road.

And a huge satellite dish and
landline tower fell over outside
the Bahamas Telecommunica-
tions base, which was exten-
sively damaged i in the storm.

At least 90 per cent of roofs
in Mathew Town were badly
damaged and some buildings
were reduced to matchwood.

But it was damage to the
Morton plant that held major
implications for the people’ s
future.

The company is literally the
buttress of the whole island
economy. It provides electricity
for the island, imports food sup-
plies, subsidises medical services
and even runs a convenience
store.

Without it, Inagua would
have nothing to sustain it.

Ms McKinney admitted:
“Because of Inagua’s position,
we can’t grow things in the
same way that our neighbouring
island, Mayaguana, can.

“Tnagua has very thin soil and
is very hot. Nothing very much
grows here. If Morton closed
down, we would have fishing
and nothing else. It is very seri-
ous.”

So far, Morton’s owners have’

said they would try to resurrect
the plant, but have reserved a
final judgment until a full assess-
ment of damage is completed.
Business observers in Nassau

are wondering whether the .

company will use the storm to
justify a withdrawal in light of
recent union tension.

Massive wind damage to the
plant follows close on the heels
of bitter labour unrest, which
will no doubt be taken into
account when Morton plans for
the future.

One hundred and seventy
people — about 70 per cent of
Inagua’s working population —
are employed by Morton.

The rest of the population,
apart from those in government
jobs, have to eke a livelihood
from the sea.

Some residents believe
Inagua’s only chance of a new
industry if Morton leaves is a

' fish-processing and canning

plant, or major investment in
eco-tourism.

At the moment, Inagua’s
tourism industry is virtually
non-existent apart from bird-

watchers who arrive from afar -

to see the island’s varied bird
life.

Yesterday, the signs were that
many of, the flamingos which
apparently took flight before
the storm are returning.

Locals noticed before the
winds hit that nearly all birdlife
— including the large parrot
and flamingo populations —
had vanished.

The parrots returned quickly,
but only in the last two or three
days have the flamingos been
seen again on the island’s lake.

Lynn Gape of the Bahamas
National Trust said wardens
had confirmed that several

‘thousand were now to be seen.

“Fairly high numbers have
returned,” she said, “It’s also
possible many were taking cov-
er in the mangroves during the

storm.”

Mr Bannister said the num-
ber of dead flamingos found in
the wake of the hurricane had
risen from 30 to 50.

Meanwhile there is concern
for the parrots whose food sup-
ply was lost when the island’s
trees were stripped of leaves
and berries as Ike roared
through.

e US Coast Guard marines,
whose patrol vessel was
anchored offshore, were yes-
terday helping to clear debris
from properties in Mathew
Town.

hurting from BEC

FROM page one

the owner doesn't know how
long the restaurant can stay
open.
"Right now things slow, so
what I did was cut down on the
hours and the staff because your
profit goes to BEC, you really
ain' making nothing, not even
breaking' even." said the owner,
who let go two staff members
and now closes the diner at 6
instead of 11 pm.

William 'Yama Bahama' But-

_ ler, owner of the Bimini Breeze

Restaurant & Bar, said

; although he is able to keep his

doors open, he knows of sever-
al entrepreneurs who are sink-
ing under the weight of hefty
electricity bills:

"They need to send someone
down here to understand why
the electricity so high. It's slow-

ing businesses up, a lot of busi-

nesses are closed down more
than they be open, except on

the weekend. I hear some peo-
. ple complaining so much about

the light bill being so high, I
afraid to go pick (mine) up."

He said he has not seen a
profit "in months" because of
costly BEC bills; last month his
fuel surcharge was $800, he said.

"For the last three days since
Sunday, I haven't made one
penny."

On Tuesday, Minister of

State for Environment Phen-:

ton Neymour said BEC cus-
tomers can expect a reduction
in electricity bills as the costly
fuel surcharge should decrease
by the end of the month: He
said he expects this month's sur-
charge rate to be lower than the
current 24 cents consumers are
paying.

He added that the reduction
is.due in part to recent tax cuts
that were approved by govern-
ment during the Budget pre-
sentation and the lowering of
oil prices on the international
market.

again for the branch’s chairman.

The former chairman of the Marathon branch, Mr Neil Per-
centie, who is protesting the previous chairmanship election, will
have a run-off against Mrs Sharon Martin.

This election is scheduled to be held next week Tuesday, Sep-
tember 16, at 7pm at CI Gibson Senior High School.

According to sources within the PLP, Mr Percentie reportedly
had a number of “old PLP’s” against him who were attempting to
use “undue influence” to sway which chairman is elected to ensure
that “their candidate” would represent Marathon for the PLP.

However, other sources within the party suggest that the election
of these various branch members are seen by some as a ploy being
used by the National Chaitman to ensure that she has ‘ ‘sympathetic
persons” in these key positions to gain.an © “overwhelming majori-

Gender reconsidered

n recent times it

has become obvi-

ous that as soon
as the word gender
is mentioned in
Bahamian public
fora, people’s eyes
glass over and they
drift off. The speaker

has lost them.
. Suddenly, it seems that
gender has been rendered
void of men. That is to say, it
has become the realm of
women’s studies departments
and feminists who wish to
exclude men, at least this is
how those people feel as they
sit there with glassy eyes, half
asleep, but not paying atten-
tion to anything post-gender.
But this is far from true. If
gender is examined it has to
include both men and
women. It cannot be the

exclusive realm of one to the
detriment of the other. And
this is where.as Bahamians
we need to reconsider what
gender means.

Gender is not women’s
studies or feminist studies, it
is in fact the study of relations
between men and women.
We try to understand why
there may be tensions
between men and women in
relationships that could lead
to misunderstandings or even
violence. Further, boys and
girls.are included in the camp
of gender. And this is where
we need to pay extra atten-
tion.

To date, many gender stud-
ies have indeed left men side-

lined in favour of focusing on.
women and their progress or
problems within a patriarchal
society as the Bahamas is.
.What we have neglected to
look at though is how, even
though society may be patri-
archal it nonetheless excludes

‘ many young men from the

. realm of power.

To be concise, young
Bahamian men are facing
serious crisis and because
they do not exist in isolation
many women are facing a
similar reality.

First, we must challenge
the idea that GENDER is
about women. Women are
only 50 per cent of what gen-
der means. If we are to fur-

ther disaggregate gender we
would see that girls and
women make up 50 per cent
and men and boys constitute
the other 50 per cent. They
cannot be Jumped together
because they are of the same
sex.
Girls and boys have very
different needs and prob-
lems than do women and
men. And this is an extreme-
ly urgent point to be dis-
cussed in our very small,
troubled society.

If we look around, we see
that violence is on the rise,
and this is not just male vio-

lence. Women are beginning —

to demonstrate what society
had held as male-like behav-
iour where they fight and
aggressively pursue whatever
they want. Girls in schools
are becoming as violent and
aggressive as the bad boys
are. Gone are the days when
we can easily establish a
dichotomy between male
and female type behaviour.
Most importantly though

\

is the need to recognise that
when we talk about gender
we are talking about males
and females and the inter-
relational dynamic between
them. Furthermore, as boys
are being lost to the margins
of society, the streets, the
dangers of drugs and crime,
we need to examine how it is
that the system is failing the
young men and do some-
thing to fix it. Because, as it
stands, men and women
need each other to have a
functioning society, and if
one half of the equation is
otherwise barred from active
participation in society then
society begins to fall apart.

Therefore, we need to stop
thinking of women and men
as independent of each other
and realise that if we simply
continue to discuss empow-
ering women, at the expense
of men, then society

‘ becomes even more dysfunc-

tional.
Knowing that the intention
of women’s empowerment is

not to exclude men is impor-
tant. Being aware that we
need to rethink how we
relate across gendered lines,
particularly how we relate to
young men and young
women, is essential in trying
to rescue the young men
who are rapidly becoming an
angry and even more disen-
franchised minority.

Gender policy, something
that is sorely missing in the
Bahamas, will work to better
relations between men and
women, boys and girls as
well as identify problems

~ specific to them, such as the

ways in which domestic vio-
lence, gender-based violence
works to marginalise young
women in particular and how
HIV strikes young/adoles-
cent girls more than any oth-
er group.

Better understanding gen-
der will help to reduce the
levels of gender-based vio-
lence in our country and
help to lower the incidence
of HIV. .

OMMUNITY leader and “unofficial Fox Hill histori-
an” Eric Wilmott, BEM, was laid to rest yesterday |
after a funeral service at St Anselm's Roman

Catholic Church.

On Thursday evening, the Fox Hill community
held a memorial service for the deceased on the
Fox Hill Parade.

Giving remarks, Fox Hill MP Fred Mitchell
remembered Mr Wilmott as a “giant of a man”
and a freedom fighter.

“This year was the 20th anniversary of the pre-
sent Fox Hill Festival Committee. He was a hap-
py man that his community and the Committee

had honoured him for all of his work in the com- _

munity. His name was stretched across the ban-
ner acroés the road. His name was proclaimed
across the radio and on television. We named it
the Eric Wilmott Fox Hill Festival. It was inter-
esting that this was met with no protest, but with
universal acclaim,” Mr Mitchell said.

“He believed in this community. He loved this
community. To say it that way does not express
by half how much he supported this community,
its place in the history of the Bahamas and where
he thought it should remain in the Bahamas. He
was always anxious to let the younger people
know what this community, Fox Hill, was and
why it should be protected.”

Mr Mitchell said that Mr Wilmott this year
announced that he was finally retiring from the
Festival Committee after having served for 20
years.

The MP also recalled the time when he was

‘able to help Mr Wilmott obtain the Britis

Empire Medal in 2007. ‘i

“When it was my good fortune to represent
this community in parliament and in the Cabinet,
he came to me once and said there is only one
thing that I wish to get and that is if you have any
kind of influence would you see that I am able to
obtain an honour from Her Majesty the Queen.

“I thank former Prime Minister Perry Christie
and all of my colleagues for making it possible to
honour this son of Fox Hill with the British
Empire Medal from Her Majesty the Queen in
2007,” Mr Mitchell said.

Mr Wilmott died last week at his home. He
was 74.

Mr Wilmott was a crime reporter in the 1960s
and worked his way up to the post of editor of
The Nassau Guardian by the end of the decade.

“Another light has gone out in Fox Hill

tonight. He was a giant of a man. He was this vil-

lage’s unofficial historian. He was a friend to
everyone, from all sides, of all ages. He support-
ed my cause and was a freedom fighter in his ear-
ly years. He never wavered in that cause and in
that fight,” Mr Mitchell said.

“On behalf of the people of the Fox Hill con-
stituency, and in particular the Fox Hill village,
the Progressive Liberal Party Branch, our condo-
lences to his son and his wider family of sisters,
brothers, nephews nieces, grandchildren. God
bless you, Eric, and god speed until we meet

One Play Does It All

This may not seem to be an

South dealer.

Both sides vulnerable. important decision, but the fact is
NORTH that the outcome depends entirely on
'@A103 this one play. If South takes the ace,
Â¥Q82. he goes down one; if he ruffs, he
#QJ103 makes the slam.
#K 53 The trouble with the ace play is
WEST EAST that it forces South to make a discard
@KQ9642 @3875 before he knows precisely what card
VAJ109 97543 to get rid of — and whether he
46 o4 chooses a heart or a club, he is cer-
#106 &Q572 tain to lose two tricks later on.
, SOUTH But if South ruffs the spade lead,
o— he is in full command of the situa-
Â¥K6 tion. After cashing the trump ace at
#AK98752 trick two, he leads the six of hearts
A984 toward dummy’s queen.
The bidding: What can West do? If he plays
South West North East low, dummy’s queen wins. South
1¢ 1% 2NT Pass then discards the king of hearts on
6¢ the spade ace and later loses only a

Opening lead — king of spades.

The bidding by the opponents
frequently points the way to
declarer’s best line of play. For
example, take this deal where South
can take advantage of West’s over-
call to bring home the slam.

West leads the king of spades,
and South must proceed very care-
fully to make the contract. His first
test comes at trick one, when he must
decide whether to play dummy’s ace
of spades or ruff in his hand instead.

Tomorrow:

club trick.

And if West goes up with the ace
of hearts, he is not in any better
shape. In that case, dummy’s ace of
spades and queen of hearts provide
convenient parking places for two of
declarer’s clubs, and the only trick
South loses is a heart.

As happens so often, the key play
occurs at trick one. All South need do
is to credit West, who made a vulner-
able overall, with the ace of hearts,
and he then tailors his play to fit that
assumption.

Bidding quiz.

Smith to head Association
for third consecutive term

@ By BRENT STUBBS °
Senior Sports Reporte
bstubbs@tribunemedia.net

FOR a third consecutive two-year
term, Wayne Smith will head the
vibrant Grand Bahama High School
Athletic Association.

Smith, a physical education teacher
at Bishop Michael Eldon High School,
was voted in unanimously during the
elections earlier this week which were
well attended by all of the 11 member
schools.

Joining him on the board are:

° Kenton Rolle, of St George’s High
School, as vice president

° Sandra Laing, of the Grand
Bahama Catholic High School, as sec-
retary

¢ Ms Palmer, of Sunland Baptist
School, as Laing’s assistant

e Emmit Higgins, of Jack Hayward,

as treasurer

¢ Ossie Simmons, scheduling and
officials coordinator

Smith said they intend to continue
with their six-week block of the core
sports starting with softball, followed
by volleyball, basketball, track and
field and soccer.

“This year for the teachers, we hope
that educational seminars will be the
order of the day,” Smith said. “As a
group, we will have representation
from all of the schools, we will be
attending the National High School
seminar in Tampa.

“But we are hoping that not just
the teachers from Grand Bahama, but
from across the Bahamas can attend
because the more we are educated on
physical education, the better we will
be as a country.”

As a national interest, Smith said
they intend to work closely with the

New Providence schools and the Min-
istry of Youth, Sports and Culture on
the formation of a National High
School Federation. :

“We need to do some exchange
programmes for the betterment of all
sports,” he said. “If we can do that, we
can see an improvement in the coun-
try as a powerhouse in sports in the
region again.”

As a whole, Smith said he doesn’t
see why the government can’t deploy
some of the qualified physical educa-
tion teachers to work on the Family
Islands to help develop the “raw tal-
ent” that is available.

“We have a lot of physical educa-
tion teachers who want to go to the

Family Islands, but they need to be

compensated just as they would for a
foreign teacher coming in,” he said.
“Those are some of the key compo-
nents that I would like to see us

strengthen in the next two years.”

On Grand Bahama, Smith said they
are appealing to the corporate spon-
sors to continue their support the way
they have done in the past.

Smith said that their association
intends to name all of their sporting
disciplines, whether it be a tourna-
ment or the league, after various per-
sons who have made valuable contri-
butions to the each sport.

“We would have sponsorship
behind our sports in honour of persons
who would have made a contribu-
tion,” he said.

“We have done well over the past
few years. We have played all of our
sports in Grand Bahama,” he said.
“I’m not saying that we are a perfect
organisation, but we’re getting to be a
very successful association through
the way we execute our sports.”

Although a Grand Bahama team

has not won the prestigious Hugh
Campbell Basketball Classic in a
while, he said they have made the
Final Four just about every year.

As a prelude to the basketball sea-
son, Smith said they will begin with
the Tip-off Basketball Classic in Octo-
ber, followed by the Thanksgiving
International Tournament hosted by
Tabernacle in November.

In December, it’s the grand-daddy
of all tournaments - the Catholic High
Christmas Invitational - and the Eight
Mile Rock Bluejays Tournament.

The junior boys and girls tourna-
ment is slated for the first week in
January after the Christmas break, he
said.

“We hope to do that with all of our
sports where we have a season and at
least one or two tournaments,” Smith
said. “We’re just waiting to get started
with softball.”

Mass
exodus
if salt
firm
closed

‘ FEARS are growing in
Inagua that the possible closure
of the storm-blasted Morton
Salt plant could lead to depop-
ulation of the island.
Locals believe there would
be a mass exodus if the salt
plant - foundation of Inagua’s
economy for.70 years - ceased
production.
“People are worried,” said
’ resident Ms Janice McKinney,
“What else would people do for
a living here? We can’t grow
anything much. People would
have to leave.”

Morton Salt’s managing
director Glenn Bannister
agreed that. many residents
would have to seek work else-
where if Inagua’s only industry
was closed down in the wake of
Hurricane Ike.

That would leave Inagua — a
large flat island known primar-
ily for its birdlife and salt pans
— with only a scattering of old
folk and subsistence fishermen.

According to locals, it would
be finished as a “viable” com-
munity.

Today, loss adjusters are vis-
iting Inagua to assess damage
to the salt plant, which suffered
badly as it took the brunt of
Ike’s 130mph-winds.

Not only was the roof blown
off the 1930s maintenance shed,
the plant lost part of its dock
and at least 5,000 tons of salt,
which blew off stockpiles back
into the sea.

_The powerful winds also
_damaged Morton property in
Mathew Town itself, causing
one block-built warehouse to
explode.

“Blocks were actually flying
through the air,” said Mr Ban-
nister, “The wind got inside the
building and couldn’t get out.
When that happened, people
taking refuge in the Morton
guesthouse across the road real-
ly began to wonder what was
happening.”

The steeple was blown off St
Philip’s Anglican Church and a

THE FIRST shipment of building materials
was sent to Inagua yesterday to help rebuild the
island in the aftermath of Hurricane Ike.

The National Emergency Management
Agency (NEMA) arranged for the plywood
and roofing supplies from FYP Builders Mall,
The Tile King and Paint Centre on Wulff Road
to be shipped from Potters Cay on the-vessel my
VI-Nais. The $100,000 donation of supplies
from the companies is being coordinated by
Mr Mark Roberts.

poles and supplies from the Bahamas Telecom-
munications Company (BTC) were also loaded
onto the ship.

Mark Roberts, coordinator of the group of
companies, said: "We have everything they
need to get back in shape."

NEMA will be delivering supplies on the
ground in Inagua.

Commander Stephen Russell, director of
NEMA, said the supplies will be a tremendous
help to those whose homes were destroyed by
the category four hurricane on Sunday.

"There were 300 structures damaged, many
had roof damage, so this will help us in a great
way. It will all be off-loaded on Sunday after-
noon, so we will be ready to distribute it on

hits business
on Bimini

â„¢ By TANEKA THOMPSON
- Tribune Staff Reporter
tthompson@tribunemedia.net

THE drastic rise in BEC's
fuel surcharge is hurting small
businesses on Bimini with
reports that one eatery has
closed because of skyrocketing
fees and others have been
forced to cut staff and operating
hours to stay open.

Although earlier in the week
Phenton Neymour, State Min-
ister for the Environment, said
customers should expect a
reduction in electricity bills in
late September, as the costly
surcharge is expected to
decrease, Bimini residents were
not impressed, saying they've
heard that before.

Island Administrator Sher-
rick Ellis rented shop space to
the owner of Corrit's Deli, who,
he said, was forced to close
because the deli's electricity bills
were higher than its rental fees.
He added that the problem is
badly affecting many on the
island.

"According to a few people
that I spoke with they are saying
that their fuel surcharge is three
times the amount of the actual
bill itself. This is something now
that the average household is

suffering with because of fuel
surcharge. To tell you the truth
I-don't know how they coping
with it, because it's kind of
rough right now."

"A lot of people (are saying)
their light bill is $800 plus a
month, people's light bill: this
month is higher than their mort-
gage. Just an average deli is pay-
ing over $3,000 (in BEC bills),"
Mr Ellis said.

The owner of CJ's Deli in
Alice Town, who asked to have
their name withheld, said rising
fuel surcharges forced manage-
ment to cut their staff and
reduce opening hours.

"They said that before when
they said the fuel surcharges
went, and my bill still was
$1,600, $1,700 or something so I
don't know. This month I paid
them $3,433.51 and the fuel
(sur)charges on that was over
$2,082.72," owner of CJ's Deli
in Alice Town said yesterday.

"Last month I paid $2,714
and the fuel (sur)charges out of
that were $1,522 — which in
they say the kilowatts what I
burn was only $920. So it's the
fuel charges what's killing me".

With the high fuel surcharge

Henry Knowles, of the
Bahamas Conference of the
Methodist Church.

The Methodist Habitat

to refrain from donating large
items,” cautioned Mr Knowles.

The church also asks that per-
sons also ensure that clothing
and other items are in good

alvation Army donates

to Inagua storm relief

DONATIONS are pouring into the
National Emergency Management Agency
(NEMA) operations centre, as the Hurri-
cane Ike relief effort for residents of Math-

ew Town, Inagua continues.

Commander Stephen Russell, director of
NEMA, reiterated his appeal to residents
and corporate Bahamas to donate supplies
to the residents, whose homes and other
properties were damaged by the category
four Hurricane Ike when it struck the island

on Sunday, September 7.

Ministry puts
accident spot
under focus

AN ACCIDENT black spot
is under surveillance by the
Ministry of Works after yet
another smash was highlighted
in The Tribune.

Cars crash into the fence:

around Hammerheads Bar and
Grill on East Bay Street almost
every weekend, says manager
Sheila Pritchard, who estimates
there have been about 30 acci-

dents in the area in the two

years she has worked there.

Ms Pritchard thinks crashes
are caused by drivers who speed
past green lights at the junction
with Dowdeswell Street,
Church Sireet, and the new Par-
adise Island bridge, and lose
control at a dip in the road
between the new tarmac and
the old, crashing into Hammer-
heads or the Elizabeth 'Betty'
Cole park across East Bay
Street.

Basketball players fill the
court in the Betty Cole Park
almost every evening, and
Hammerheads patio is often
filled with customers.

Howard Barnett from the
Ministry of Works surveyed the

road on two days this week to
assess the cause of the accidents.

He discounted the dip in the
road as a danger, but believes it
is more to do with speeding into
the road bend. And statistics
show accidents have been
occurring in the area long
before the new bridge was built.

Mr Barnett said: "My obser-
vation is that the accidents by
the bar are well clear of the
intersection so I don't think the
dip is the cause.

“When the light is green they
come through the intersection

faster than when there is traffic '

or it has been red.

"If you are observing the
speed limit you shouldn't have a
problem but there is a bend in
the road, and it sometimes
means people are breaking and
lose contro! when they are not
driving within the speed limit."

Mr Barnett said he would dis-
cuss the possibilities for improv-
ing road safety with his team
and explore the need for

improved engineering, signage

and enforcement of the speed
limit.

kon Thursday, NEMA accepted a number
of donations from the Salvation Army.
Thosé items included 54 mops; 83 buckets
of cleaning kits; 30 cases of sugar; 28 cases

-of corned beef; 28 cases of sardines.

The Royal Bahamas Defence Force ves-
sel, HMBS Yellow Elder, on Thursday took
the items to the island for immediate dis-
tribution to residents. Donations of simi-
Jar items can be dropped off at the Salvation
Army located on Mackey Street.

The Salvation Army said it also will be

collecting funds to aid the hurricane vic-
tims in Inagua.

NEMA’s list of relief items for Inagua
includes generators, tarpaulin, felt, cots and
blankets.

Commander Russell is also appealing
for volunteers to assist in the relief, restora-
tion and reconstruction efforts.

Persons can also donate to the National
Disaster Relief Fund, account No. 1281013
at the Royal Bank of Canada, main branch,
Bay Street.

Man bailed on underage sex charge

A 30-year-old Lincoln Boule-
vard man accused of having sex

ask: What

about us?

By LLOYD ALLEN

LOCAL Haitians are ask- |
ing when the Bahamas will
step forward in offering any
aid to ravaged Haiti, after
the country was severely hit
by a slew of storms. |

First Gustav, then Han-
na, then Ike — the country
of Haiti was battered by
these hurricanes, suffering
structural damage, floods,
and an ever increasing death
toll.

Local lawyer and Haitian
activist Elizier Regnier says
that although he is very
sympathetic to persons in
Inagua who were severely
affected by Hurricane Han-
na and Ike, and the govern-
ment of the Bahamas is
obligated to ensuring the
dispatch of relief efforts
there first, “What about

“Haiti?”

He argued that although
there is a large local Haitian
population in the Bahamas,
there appears to be a local
attitude which indicates an
indifference to sending
efforts to Haiti.

Mr Regnier noted that
even before the storms, the
country had been undergo-
ing consistent economic

challenges. .

He said that people espe-
cially in Gonaives, Haiti—a

-town which has been heavi-

ly damaged by flood waters
— are dying in large num-
bers due to this infrastruc-
tural unbalance.

For many persons living

there only means of sur-
vival, the lawyer said.

Mr Regnier said although
he is confident that Prime
Minister Hubert Ingraham
will keep his promise to
send aid to Haiti, he hopes
relief arrives sooner than
later, as the death count
there continues to increase.

Reverend Allan Lavern
of the Hearts for Haiti
organisation, says his organ-
isation is currently planning
to send two large contain-
ers filled with water, clothes,
and food to the impover-
ished nation.

He also indicated that a
pcvss conference will be
held on Tuesday next week
at the Catholic Archbishops |
office, where a plea will be
sent to Bahamians for dona-
tions of any kind to be sent
to the country.

United Nations UNICEF
director of emergency pro-
grammes Louis-Georges
Arsenault said in a recent
interview that the death rate
in the country is constantly
rising due to the lack of
clean water, and shelter.

“The issue that we are
facing now in Haiti is access,
It was only up to Septem-
ber 10 that we were able to
start moving into that
region,” said Mr Arsenault. |

IT IS WELL past time for Sarah Palin,
Republican running mate, governor of Alaska
and self-proclaimed reformer, to fill in for the
voting public the gaping blanks about her record
and qualifications to be vice president.

The best way to do that would be exactly
what the campaign of John McCain is avoiding
— an honest news conference. Instead, she has
been the bell-jar candidate, barnstorming safe
crowds with socko punch lines and plans for a
single interview on ABC News built around a
visit to Fairbanks, Alaska, and her hometown of
Wasilla.

Just in time for that appearance, Palin, who
was proclaiming her family’s privacy a week
ago, will make a political event out of her son’s
deployment to Iraq. But as for talking to
reporters in general, the McCain campaign sniff-
ishly says they must fist show “some level of
respect and deference.”

That is a peculiar response for someone who
is campaigning as one tough, transparent politi-
cian who can take the heat.

Why not some detailed questioning? With
deference, we believe many questions will arise
about this largely unknown politician as
reporters properly search beyond the whole-
some anecdotes.

Palin is positioning herself as the kind of politi-
cian who knows. how to manage the people’s
money. She got a big cheer from the Republican






















Nice work if you can get it
~~ DANIEL Mudd and Richard Syron, the oust-
ed chiefs of Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac, could
collect as much as $24 million in exit pay (up to
$9.3 million for Mudd and at least $14.1 million
for Syron) unless a federal regulator sensibly
says no.

Neither should be rewarded any more than
they already have been for their failures.

This is the same Mudd and Syron who presided
over the near total wipeout of Fannie and Fred-
die’s shareholders and whose mismanagement
of the mortgage-finance companies has led to
what could become the biggest federal bailout in
American history. te

The severance would come on top of $12.4
million in salary, bonuses and stock-option prof-
its that Mudd has taken home since becoming
Fannie’s chief executive in 2004, according to
Equilar research. Syron also made out big, col-
lecting $17.1 million since he took charge of Fred-
die in 2003.

convention when McCain said she had put the
Alaska goyernor’s private plane on eBay.

The running mates both failed to mention |

that it did not sell on eBay and that she unloaded
it later to a businessman for a $600,000 loss.
The Chicago Tribune reported that the majori-
ty of the plane’s time was used to transport pris-.

oners from Alaska’s crowded jails to Arizona, a

job now done by federal marshals.
All of which made it vexing to read the dis-
closure by The Washington Post that Palin billed

Alaska taxpayers for more than 300 nights that

she spent at home in her first 18 months in office.
The campaign claims the $60-a-day allowance is
proper, and various states do have differing per-
diem approaches. But voters ought to hear the
candidate answering such questions, not for pur-
poses of petty quibbling, but to help fill out their
skimpy sense of who Palin actually is. She could
explain, as well, why she was for the Bridge to
Nowhere when it was first proposed and
réversed field once it became a symbol of leg-
islative abuse. Even then, the governor helped
cycle the $223 million in federal pork to other

“. state needs.

Voters have a right to hear Palin explain in
detail her qualifications to be standby president
with no national or foreign policy experience.

More is required of any serious candidate for
such a high office than one interview with ques-
tions put by one selected source.

Nice work if you can get it

Lockhart of the Federal Housing Finance ©

Agency, had not yet decided on the payments.
The two men do not bear sole responsibility for
the costly demise of Fannie and Freddie. Wide-
spread regulatory failure allowed the housing
bubble to inflate. And Conzress also failed in its
duty to oversee the companies.
But shared blame is still blame. And as the

chief executives, Mudd and Syron are much to -

blame.

We don’t minimize the difficulty of their jobs:
they had to make profits for their shareholders
while also serving the public by providing a steady
stream of funds to expand home ownership.

They ‘failed to achieve any prudent balance. |

Instead, they took risks that boosted near-term
profits while feeding the housing bubble that has
now burst with such dire consequences for so
many Americans. —

Mudd and Syron are at the centre of an epic
failure. Taxpayers should not be required to give
them a consolation prize on their way out.

EDITORIAL/LETTERS TO THE EDITOR

pensions

EDITOR, The Tribune.

My dear brothers and sisters
of the Bahamas, after reading
an article on June 28th in The
Nassau Guardian about the dis-
pute of funds at the Nassau
Supermarket and warehouse
union, also the article in The
Bahama Journal on August
26th about Justice Adderley

ordering the Hotei Workers:

Union to be audited and await-
ing the results of the indepen-
dent audit from HLB Galanis
Bain accounting firm. These
articles support and confirm my
concern when having my letter

and radio advertisements in The .

Tribune, Nassau Guardian, The
Punch, Island FM, and Love 97
FM from last year, August 2007,
until presently, September 2008,
requesting the government to
implement accountability, reg-
ulation and reform for all work-
ers’ pension union funds in the

Bahamas. ,

It.is extremely urgent for the
government to have these
guidelines to ensure credibility
and assurance for every

_ Bahamian union worker so that:

they can be confident of col-
lecting a pension cheque upon
retiring or being laid off from
work as happened recently with

from the Crystal Palace Hotel in

their homes in these real hard
economic times. I strongly rec-
ommend that government have
an independent company audit
all union pension funds every
year to bring about transparen-
cy and not secrecy. This system
is presently in place in most
American pension fund com-

_ panies to protect members’

money and ensure it is there
when it is time to collect a pen-
sion.

I would like to share my per-
sonal story as a member of the
Hotel, Pension Management
Fund.

First to clarify their discrimi-
nation policy. If they decide to
choose who to pay and not to
pay by excluding some people
from receiving their pension
cheque before age 65 years old
when leaving the hotel indus-

- try then having other people

qualify to receive a pension
cheque based again on a num-
ber of years employed at the
hotel. This is simply and clearly
discrimination. If everyone had
to wait until age 65 to receive
their pension, then I would not
have been looking to receive
mine like my brothers were able

to do, in receiving all of the
money saved in their pension
funds after their tenure with the
hotel. This was a cheque pay-

ment of all money saved in their :

pension fund. The mistake that

the Hotel Pension Management —

Fund made in regards to this
matter was that they had
already paid my brothers. We
all worked for the same hotel
and department on Paradise

‘Island in the 1980’s. For the

record none of them are 65
years old and we are no longer
working in the hotel industry.
So I was surprised and shocked
when they refused to give me
my pension cheque in August
2007. I then decided that in
order for change to happen you
must be prepared to fight for it.
I am the voice for the voiceless,
David against Goliath, The Peo-
ple’s Champion for Justice
against the Hotel Pension. Man-
agement Fund located on West
Bay Street. °

I wanted to inform, educate,
expose and:share this experi-
ence with the Bahamian peo-
ple in the media so if anyone
hada similar experience they
could write a letter to the editor
of the newspaper.

PEDRO SMITH

Is Moss a fertile
choice for PLP?

EDITOR, The Tribune.

During the last three years or so, Attorney
Paul David Moss has emerged within circles with-
in the great and iconic Progressive Liberal Party
(PLP) as a fairly young man to be reckoned with.
Clearly, he is highly educated; focused and moti-
vated by a zeal to ‘do right by the common man
and womaii’.

While these traits, ordinarily, are no guarantees
that Moss will ever be able to enter the hallowed
halls of parliament, one, especially who may be a
student of Bahamian political and anthropologi-

cal history, could easily caution him that they.

may well turn out to be like an Albatross around
his neck and career as a politician within the
PLP. ' é
Moss, a talented and Croseus like barrister-at-
law, appears, oftentimes, to be an enigma

wrapped up in a puzzle, to quote the venerable Sir_
- Winston Churchill, former thrice Prime Minis-

ter of the United Kingdom of Great Britain.

As an upper middle class scion of a long polit-
ically-orientated family (his late father, Paul Moss
Sr was the founder and proprietor of a chain of
grocery stores in the inner city areas of New
Providence when it was difficult for a black man
to own anything of value in The Bahamas), Moss
could simply rest on his laurels and say to hell
with the masses of the residents of St Cecilia.

Instead, at what must be a great financial and

- personal sacrifice Moss has declared that he is on

a mission to rescue the disorientated Progressive

Liberal Party (PLP) and holds himself out to be |

the great hope for it’s return to high office. While
I wish him well in what appears to be an exercise
similar to that of Don Quixote, Moss is deadly
serious about advancing up the greasy pole.

Moss will, however, have to first slay the drag-
ons of indifference; cannibalism; myopic and
xenophobic which are joined to the hip with the
PLP. He holds himself out to be the ‘Obama’ for
his party, but, like Senator Hillary Clinton found
out, the hard way, perception is not always real-
ity.

Leadership ‘out of the box’ is crucial to the

return.of the PLP to high office. Indeed, the

fabled King of Macedonia, Philip I, once opined:
“An army of deer led by a lion is more to be
feared than an army of lions led by a deer.” Moss
says that he is ‘the man’ and we should call his
political bluff. Once St Cecilia would have sent
Moss to the House of Assembly, we will see of
what stuff he is made off. Until then, to God be
the glory in all things.

H BODIE JR
Nassau,
September 9, 2008.

(The correct quote of Sir Winston Churchill
made in reference to Russia, and to which Mr
Bodie refers in his letter, is:

(“It is a a riddle wrapped in a mystery inside an
engima.” — Ed).

Our politicians must

put their family first

EDITOR, The Tribune.

The theme at the Democrat-
ic National Convention was not
family first but the subtle mes-
sage sent was that politicians
who pretend to serve people
should be family oriented. In
fact they should be married, for
more reasons than not.

The DNC paraded family of
the Presidential and Vice Pres-
idential nominees, the Kennedy
family, Senator Claire

McCaskill family and others. —

This clear message is designed
to say unequivocally that when
you have a family, you are more
sensitive to the needs of moth-
ers, children and fathers. It said
that you are responsible.

A strong family is an ingredi-
ent for a strong community and
certainly a strong country.
Politicians and those with aspi-
rations to be should all be fam-
ily persons. It is uncomfortable

for a single male person to
expect to be invited into the
homes of families, young ladies
and single mothers. Believe it
or not it is even risky to have
our innocent young sons
exposed to some single politi-
cians. The temptation is simply
too great for mischief and
potential exploitation.

A single male should be sus-
pect for other reasons too
numerous to mention. The lev-
el of sensitivity is different when
there has been no experience

in family matters. You need

your own family, not your
mother and father, brothers, sis-
ters, nieces and nephews.

Men who never experience
how it feels to come home to a
wife, who would help him clear
his head of all of the stresses of
the day, would never under-
stand how family works. There
is absolutely no substitute, none
whatsoever.

The Bahamas, like the United
States, should move with
extreme haste to make one of
the criteria for running in an
election to be that all candidates
must be married. If we are seri-
ous about building a better
Bahamas then we must
embrace this necessary practice.

The Bahamian political land-
scape has been littered with sin-
gle men who have no children
and no wife and expect to be
received the same way married
people are.

If the PLP are serious then
they would eliminate all who
are single that are vying for the
top positions. I know this will
cause some “shotgun” weddings
to happen in the next five sec-
onds. We will see who runs
down the aisle first.

GB linesmen sent to aid in
ower restoration in Inagua

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

FREEPORT -_ Grand
Bahama Power Company has
sent crew of four linesmen to
Inagua to assist BEC with its
power restoration efforts on that
island.

Excell Ferrell, Power Compa-
ny CEO, and Derek King, direc-
tor of transmission and distribu-
tion, said they are very pleased
to be able to lend assistance to
BEC and the residents of
Inagua.

“We are very saddened by the
devastation and we are sending
four of our finest linesmen to
assist with restoration on the
island,” Mr Ferrell said on Fri-
day during the send-off at the
Regional Air terminal.

Team leader Patrick Laing,
along with Samuel Rolle, Andre
Spence, and Arthur Spencer will
be in Inagua for about two to
three weeks helping to rebuild

the entire power infrastructure, .

which was destroyed by Hurri-
cane Ike.

Mr Laing said his team will
assist with erecting new poles,
stringing new wires, and
installing conductors, among
other things.

“My colleagues and I are very
excited to be going over to help
restore power for residents as
quick as possible,” he said.

Mr King said their team is
ready for the tremendous task
ahead in Inagua.

“We are satisfied that our
highly qualified team is capable
of making a significant contri-
bution to the restoration efforts.

“We have been in contact with
Kevin Basden at BEC and Glen
Bannister at Morton Salt about
accommodations for our men
because we did not want them to
go down-there and not have any
living accommodations,” he said.

Mr Ferrell said the GBPC is
very thankful to BEC for its
assistance in 2004 following the
two hurricanes on Grand
Bahama.

“Co-operation during emer-
gencies is one of the hallmarks of
the Caribbean community, and
in that spirit GB Power is
pleased to be able to assist them
with their restoration.

“It was not long ago Grand
Bahama residents were in a sim-
ilar situation and BEC lent assis-
tance to us in our time of need.
They were quick to respond and
participated in our restoration
efforts, and we are pleased to be
able to reciprocate with that
help, he said.

Mr Ferrell said that the com-
pany is also sending materials
with its crew to assist with the
restoration.

“The cost will be something
less than $10,000 for the materi-
als they will need to begin restor-
ing power,” he said.

Inagua cannot be
sustained without
Morton’s presence

FROM page one

children’s playground was
wiped out.

Another church belonging to
the Church of God of Prophecy
collapsed, leaving a decorated
altar exposed to the road.

And a huge satellite dish and
landline tower fell over outside
the Bahamas Telecommunica-
tions base, which was exten-
sively damaged i in the storm.

At least 90 per cent of roofs
in Mathew Town were badly
damaged and some buildings
were reduced to matchwood.

But it was damage to the
Morton plant that held major
implications for the people’ s
future.

The company is literally the
buttress of the whole island
economy. It provides electricity
for the island, imports food sup-
plies, subsidises medical services
and even runs a convenience
store.

Without it, Inagua would
have nothing to sustain it.

Ms McKinney admitted:
“Because of Inagua’s position,
we can’t grow things in the
same way that our neighbouring
island, Mayaguana, can.

“Tnagua has very thin soil and
is very hot. Nothing very much
grows here. If Morton closed
down, we would have fishing
and nothing else. It is very seri-
ous.”

So far, Morton’s owners have’

said they would try to resurrect
the plant, but have reserved a
final judgment until a full assess-
ment of damage is completed.
Business observers in Nassau

are wondering whether the .

company will use the storm to
justify a withdrawal in light of
recent union tension.

Massive wind damage to the
plant follows close on the heels
of bitter labour unrest, which
will no doubt be taken into
account when Morton plans for
the future.

“Casting our cares upon Him, for He cq

One hundred and seventy
people — about 70 per cent of
Inagua’s working population —
are employed by Morton.

The rest of the population,
apart from those in government
jobs, have to eke a livelihood
from the sea.

Some residents believe
Inagua’s only chance of a new
industry if Morton leaves is a

' fish-processing and canning

plant, or major investment in
eco-tourism.

At the moment, Inagua’s
tourism industry is virtually
non-existent apart from bird-

watchers who arrive from afar -

to see the island’s varied bird
life.

Yesterday, the signs were that
many of, the flamingos which
apparently took flight before
the storm are returning.

Locals noticed before the
winds hit that nearly all birdlife
— including the large parrot
and flamingo populations —
had vanished.

The parrots returned quickly,
but only in the last two or three
days have the flamingos been
seen again on the island’s lake.

Lynn Gape of the Bahamas
National Trust said wardens
had confirmed that several

‘thousand were now to be seen.

“Fairly high numbers have
returned,” she said, “It’s also
possible many were taking cov-
er in the mangroves during the

storm.”

Mr Bannister said the num-
ber of dead flamingos found in
the wake of the hurricane had
risen from 30 to 50.

Meanwhile there is concern
for the parrots whose food sup-
ply was lost when the island’s
trees were stripped of leaves
and berries as Ike roared
through.

e US Coast Guard marines,
whose patrol vessel was
anchored offshore, were yes-
terday helping to clear debris
from properties in Mathew
Town.

hurting from BEC

FROM page one

the owner doesn't know how
long the restaurant can stay
open.
"Right now things slow, so
what I did was cut down on the
hours and the staff because your
profit goes to BEC, you really
ain' making nothing, not even
breaking' even." said the owner,
who let go two staff members
and now closes the diner at 6
instead of 11 pm.

William 'Yama Bahama' But-

_ ler, owner of the Bimini Breeze

Restaurant & Bar, said

; although he is able to keep his

doors open, he knows of sever-
al entrepreneurs who are sink-
ing under the weight of hefty
electricity bills:

"They need to send someone
down here to understand why
the electricity so high. It's slow-

ing businesses up, a lot of busi-

nesses are closed down more
than they be open, except on

the weekend. I hear some peo-
. ple complaining so much about

the light bill being so high, I
afraid to go pick (mine) up."

He said he has not seen a
profit "in months" because of
costly BEC bills; last month his
fuel surcharge was $800, he said.

"For the last three days since
Sunday, I haven't made one
penny."

On Tuesday, Minister of

State for Environment Phen-:

ton Neymour said BEC cus-
tomers can expect a reduction
in electricity bills as the costly
fuel surcharge should decrease
by the end of the month: He
said he expects this month's sur-
charge rate to be lower than the
current 24 cents consumers are
paying.

He added that the reduction
is.due in part to recent tax cuts
that were approved by govern-
ment during the Budget pre-
sentation and the lowering of
oil prices on the international
market.

again for the branch’s chairman.

The former chairman of the Marathon branch, Mr Neil Per-
centie, who is protesting the previous chairmanship election, will
have a run-off against Mrs Sharon Martin.

This election is scheduled to be held next week Tuesday, Sep-
tember 16, at 7pm at CI Gibson Senior High School.

According to sources within the PLP, Mr Percentie reportedly
had a number of “old PLP’s” against him who were attempting to
use “undue influence” to sway which chairman is elected to ensure
that “their candidate” would represent Marathon for the PLP.

However, other sources within the party suggest that the election
of these various branch members are seen by some as a ploy being
used by the National Chaitman to ensure that she has ‘ ‘sympathetic
persons” in these key positions to gain.an © “overwhelming majori-
y of support on the ground level.

Gender reconsidered

n recent times it

has become obvi-

ous that as soon
as the word gender
is mentioned in
Bahamian public
fora, people’s eyes
glass over and they
drift off. The speaker

has lost them.
. Suddenly, it seems that
gender has been rendered
void of men. That is to say, it
has become the realm of
women’s studies departments
and feminists who wish to
exclude men, at least this is
how those people feel as they
sit there with glassy eyes, half
asleep, but not paying atten-
tion to anything post-gender.
But this is far from true. If
gender is examined it has to
include both men and
women. It cannot be the

exclusive realm of one to the
detriment of the other. And
this is where.as Bahamians
we need to reconsider what
gender means.

Gender is not women’s
studies or feminist studies, it
is in fact the study of relations
between men and women.
We try to understand why
there may be tensions
between men and women in
relationships that could lead
to misunderstandings or even
violence. Further, boys and
girls.are included in the camp
of gender. And this is where
we need to pay extra atten-
tion.

To date, many gender stud-
ies have indeed left men side-

lined in favour of focusing on.
women and their progress or
problems within a patriarchal
society as the Bahamas is.
.What we have neglected to
look at though is how, even
though society may be patri-
archal it nonetheless excludes

‘ many young men from the

. realm of power.

To be concise, young
Bahamian men are facing
serious crisis and because
they do not exist in isolation
many women are facing a
similar reality.

First, we must challenge
the idea that GENDER is
about women. Women are
only 50 per cent of what gen-
der means. If we are to fur-

ther disaggregate gender we
would see that girls and
women make up 50 per cent
and men and boys constitute
the other 50 per cent. They
cannot be Jumped together
because they are of the same
sex.
Girls and boys have very
different needs and prob-
lems than do women and
men. And this is an extreme-
ly urgent point to be dis-
cussed in our very small,
troubled society.

If we look around, we see
that violence is on the rise,
and this is not just male vio-

lence. Women are beginning —

to demonstrate what society
had held as male-like behav-
iour where they fight and
aggressively pursue whatever
they want. Girls in schools
are becoming as violent and
aggressive as the bad boys
are. Gone are the days when
we can easily establish a
dichotomy between male
and female type behaviour.
Most importantly though

\

is the need to recognise that
when we talk about gender
we are talking about males
and females and the inter-
relational dynamic between
them. Furthermore, as boys
are being lost to the margins
of society, the streets, the
dangers of drugs and crime,
we need to examine how it is
that the system is failing the
young men and do some-
thing to fix it. Because, as it
stands, men and women
need each other to have a
functioning society, and if
one half of the equation is
otherwise barred from active
participation in society then
society begins to fall apart.

Therefore, we need to stop
thinking of women and men
as independent of each other
and realise that if we simply
continue to discuss empow-
ering women, at the expense
of men, then society

‘ becomes even more dysfunc-

tional.
Knowing that the intention
of women’s empowerment is

not to exclude men is impor-
tant. Being aware that we
need to rethink how we
relate across gendered lines,
particularly how we relate to
young men and young
women, is essential in trying
to rescue the young men
who are rapidly becoming an
angry and even more disen-
franchised minority.

Gender policy, something
that is sorely missing in the
Bahamas, will work to better
relations between men and
women, boys and girls as
well as identify problems

~ specific to them, such as the

ways in which domestic vio-
lence, gender-based violence
works to marginalise young
women in particular and how
HIV strikes young/adoles-
cent girls more than any oth-
er group.

Better understanding gen-
der will help to reduce the
levels of gender-based vio-
lence in our country and
help to lower the incidence
of HIV. .

had honoured him for all of his work in the com- _

munity. His name was stretched across the ban-
ner acroés the road. His name was proclaimed
across the radio and on television. We named it
the Eric Wilmott Fox Hill Festival. It was inter-
esting that this was met with no protest, but with
universal acclaim,” Mr Mitchell said.

“He believed in this community. He loved this
community. To say it that way does not express
by half how much he supported this community,
its place in the history of the Bahamas and where
he thought it should remain in the Bahamas. He
was always anxious to let the younger people
know what this community, Fox Hill, was and
why it should be protected.”

Mr Mitchell said that Mr Wilmott this year
announced that he was finally retiring from the
Festival Committee after having served for 20
years.

The MP also recalled the time when he was

‘able to help Mr Wilmott obtain the Britis

Empire Medal in 2007. ‘i

A DOCTOR assures the patient that the process of donating blood
will not be painful, but quick and safe. The event was sponsored by

“When it was my good fortune to represent
this community in parliament and in the Cabinet,
he came to me once and said there is only one
thing that I wish to get and that is if you have any
kind of influence would you see that I am able to
obtain an honour from Her Majesty the Queen.

“I thank former Prime Minister Perry Christie
and all of my colleagues for making it possible to
honour this son of Fox Hill with the British
Empire Medal from Her Majesty the Queen in
2007,” Mr Mitchell said.

Mr Wilmott died last week at his home. He
was 74.

Mr Wilmott was a crime reporter in the 1960s
and worked his way up to the post of editor of
The Nassau Guardian by the end of the decade.

“Another light has gone out in Fox Hill

tonight. He was a giant of a man. He was this vil-

lage’s unofficial historian. He was a friend to
everyone, from all sides, of all ages. He support-
ed my cause and was a freedom fighter in his ear-
ly years. He never wavered in that cause and in
that fight,” Mr Mitchell said.

“On behalf of the people of the Fox Hill con-
stituency, and in particular the Fox Hill village,
the Progressive Liberal Party Branch, our condo-
lences to his son and his wider family of sisters,
brothers, nephews nieces, grandchildren. God
bless you, Eric, and god speed until we meet

One Play Does It All

This may not seem to be an

South dealer.

Both sides vulnerable. important decision, but the fact is
NORTH that the outcome depends entirely on
'@A103 this one play. If South takes the ace,
Â¥Q82. he goes down one; if he ruffs, he
#QJ103 makes the slam.
#K 53 The trouble with the ace play is
WEST EAST that it forces South to make a discard
@KQ9642 @3875 before he knows precisely what card
VAJ109 97543 to get rid of — and whether he
46 o4 chooses a heart or a club, he is cer-
#106 &Q572 tain to lose two tricks later on.
, SOUTH But if South ruffs the spade lead,
o— he is in full command of the situa-
Â¥K6 tion. After cashing the trump ace at
#AK98752 trick two, he leads the six of hearts
A984 toward dummy’s queen.
The bidding: What can West do? If he plays
South West North East low, dummy’s queen wins. South
1¢ 1% 2NT Pass then discards the king of hearts on
6¢ the spade ace and later loses only a

Opening lead — king of spades.

The bidding by the opponents
frequently points the way to
declarer’s best line of play. For
example, take this deal where South
can take advantage of West’s over-
call to bring home the slam.

West leads the king of spades,
and South must proceed very care-
fully to make the contract. His first
test comes at trick one, when he must
decide whether to play dummy’s ace
of spades or ruff in his hand instead.

Tomorrow:

club trick.

And if West goes up with the ace
of hearts, he is not in any better
shape. In that case, dummy’s ace of
spades and queen of hearts provide
convenient parking places for two of
declarer’s clubs, and the only trick
South loses is a heart.

As happens so often, the key play
occurs at trick one. All South need do
is to credit West, who made a vulner-
able overall, with the ace of hearts,
and he then tailors his play to fit that
assumption.

Smith to head Association
for third consecutive term

@ By BRENT STUBBS °
Senior Sports Reporte
bstubbs@tribunemedia.net

FOR a third consecutive two-year
term, Wayne Smith will head the
vibrant Grand Bahama High School
Athletic Association.

Smith, a physical education teacher
at Bishop Michael Eldon High School,
was voted in unanimously during the
elections earlier this week which were
well attended by all of the 11 member
schools.

Joining him on the board are:

° Kenton Rolle, of St George’s High
School, as vice president

° Sandra Laing, of the Grand
Bahama Catholic High School, as sec-
retary

¢ Ms Palmer, of Sunland Baptist
School, as Laing’s assistant

e Emmit Higgins, of Jack Hayward,

as treasurer

¢ Ossie Simmons, scheduling and
officials coordinator

Smith said they intend to continue
with their six-week block of the core
sports starting with softball, followed
by volleyball, basketball, track and
field and soccer.

“This year for the teachers, we hope
that educational seminars will be the
order of the day,” Smith said. “As a
group, we will have representation
from all of the schools, we will be
attending the National High School
seminar in Tampa.

“But we are hoping that not just
the teachers from Grand Bahama, but
from across the Bahamas can attend
because the more we are educated on
physical education, the better we will
be as a country.”

As a national interest, Smith said
they intend to work closely with the

New Providence schools and the Min-
istry of Youth, Sports and Culture on
the formation of a National High
School Federation. :

“We need to do some exchange
programmes for the betterment of all
sports,” he said. “If we can do that, we
can see an improvement in the coun-
try as a powerhouse in sports in the
region again.”

As a whole, Smith said he doesn’t
see why the government can’t deploy
some of the qualified physical educa-
tion teachers to work on the Family
Islands to help develop the “raw tal-
ent” that is available.

“We have a lot of physical educa-
tion teachers who want to go to the

Family Islands, but they need to be

compensated just as they would for a
foreign teacher coming in,” he said.
“Those are some of the key compo-
nents that I would like to see us

strengthen in the next two years.”

On Grand Bahama, Smith said they
are appealing to the corporate spon-
sors to continue their support the way
they have done in the past.

Smith said that their association
intends to name all of their sporting
disciplines, whether it be a tourna-
ment or the league, after various per-
sons who have made valuable contri-
butions to the each sport.

“We would have sponsorship
behind our sports in honour of persons
who would have made a contribu-
tion,” he said.

“We have done well over the past
few years. We have played all of our
sports in Grand Bahama,” he said.
“I’m not saying that we are a perfect
organisation, but we’re getting to be a
very successful association through
the way we execute our sports.”

Although a Grand Bahama team

has not won the prestigious Hugh
Campbell Basketball Classic in a
while, he said they have made the
Final Four just about every year.

As a prelude to the basketball sea-
son, Smith said they will begin with
the Tip-off Basketball Classic in Octo-
ber, followed by the Thanksgiving
International Tournament hosted by
Tabernacle in November.

In December, it’s the grand-daddy
of all tournaments - the Catholic High
Christmas Invitational - and the Eight
Mile Rock Bluejays Tournament.

The junior boys and girls tourna-
ment is slated for the first week in
January after the Christmas break, he
said.

“We hope to do that with all of our
sports where we have a season and at
least one or two tournaments,” Smith
said. “We’re just waiting to get started
with softball.”
