A CHINESE firm has
emerged as a major contender
in securing a development con-
tract with the Baha Mar Devel-
opment group, according to
company executives.

Robert Sands, Baha*Mar
Senior vice-president for admin-
istration and external affairs,
yesterday told the media that
the company, China State Con-
struction, is among a number
of groups that have communi-
cated an interest in securing the
development contract for the
company, and is now being seri-
ously. considered.

“Those talks have been going
well, we’ve had a series of dis-
cussions with this particular
group (and) they are progress- _
ing,” said Mr Sands.

“We are encouraged,” he
said, “by what has happened
and we hope that it will materi-
alise into something that we’d

r VEHICLE is towed away from Dowdeswell Street yesterday.

SCORES of people in the Dowdeswell Street
area were furious yesterday to find their vehi-
cles towed by tourism police, while MP Sidney
Collie’s car was left untouched.

Motorists said they were told by some of the
officers that they could not touch that particular
car because it had government plates.

However, The Tribune could find-no regulation
preventing the police from towing an MP’s car,
and the officers conducting the towing exercise
when a reporter arrived on the scene — 1061

refused to speak to the press.

Freeport —
Container Port
staff ‘fall ill after.
being exposed to
- noxious odour’ |

A WORKER at the Freeport
Container Port has called on
Government to investigate
whether the port is a safe place
to work after an alleged 46 peo-
ple had to be sent to hospital
Tuesday suffering from:stom-
ach cramps, burning eyes and
vomiting.

The source said the workers
fell ill after being exposed to a
“noxious odour” being emitted
from a container on the site.

Officials from the Freeport
Container Port confirmed yes-
terday that there was a prob-
lem with the container, which
housed chemicals used to man-
ufacture rubber plastic and resin
products.

They said the container,
which has now been “isolated”
in preparation for onward ship-
ping, showed no signs of leak--
age but they believe the wind

direction may have helped stir
the odour.

The worker said an “ambu-
lance full” of workers had to be
taken from the port, while the
container port bus had to make
two trips to take sickened work-
ers to hospital.

“We don’t know where this
box is that they took off the
property last night. ’m serious,
I want the government to look
into that,” said the worker.

“It’s questionable if the gen-
eral public is at risk. We don’t
know if we take this odour ,
home to our family what is
going to happen...this matter
should not be taken lightly,”
said the worker.

He called on Government “to
go down there and conduct
toxicology reports so we
would know if it’s safe to work
there.”

ROBERT HALAT outside of
court yesterday.






FRAIL Lyford Cay resident
Robert Halat was brought
before the courts yesterday
charged with gambling at
Atlantis on his 78th birthday.
The retired American citizen,
who has lived in the Bahamas
with his French wife for 18
years, was charged with play-
ing poker and betting on the
game at Atlantis casino in Par-
adise Island on September 24.
Mr Halat, dressed in a pale
yellow shirt, khaki trousers,
brown leather boat shoes, and a
gold bracelet, pleaded not guilty
to the charge of gambling as a

Bahamian citizen and explained
to magistrate Guillimina Archer
that he is not a Bahamian citi-
zen.

Ms Archer allowed Mr Halat
to lean on the bench as he stood
before her in Court 10, Nassau
Street, given his frail condition,
as she read the charge.

"I'm not a Bahamian citizen,
your honour," he protested.

BNT pleased with
turtle conservation

SEA Turtle conservation initiatives announced
by the Department of Marine Resources this
week show the government's commitment to
safeguard our land and sea, the Bahamas Nation-

al Trust said.

Government announced it will ban the com-
mercial harvest, purchase or sale of all species of
marine turtle at the end of this year and ban all
harvesting of turtles by April 30, 2009.

The BNT has long called for government to
abolish the commercial harvest of endangered
sea turtles, making an official recommendation to

government in 1993.

And earlier this year, the BNT pressed for a
total ban on taking or selling of sea turtles in the

Bahamas.

A BNT spokesman said: "At this point we
would have preferred to see an immediate total
ban, but we understand the government's rea-
soning for this phased approach.

"We think it is an important and welcome’ step
forward in marine conservation.

"Turtles are a vital part of Bahamian marine
ecology and an important part of our future,
which is why we need to prohibit harvesting."

Sea turtle numbers fall during migration, when
they are threatened by human exploitation, when
they are not able to lay eggs on developed beach-
es, and sea turtle hatchlings take up to 30 years to

reach reproductive age.

DRUG Enforcement Unit
officers on Tuesday arrested a
19-year-old man in connection
with alleged marijuana and
firearm possession.

Assistant Superintendent
Walter Evans said the suspect
tried to throw a package of
marijuana onto the ground
after he saw police officers in
the Kemp Road area.

Officers retrieved the
object, examined it and °
reportedly found “40 pieces”
of marijuana wrapped in silver
foil.

A search was then carried
out at the suspect's Strachan's
Alley home where police
found a 9mm handgun with
nine live rounds of ammuni-
tion. -

The suspect is in police cus-
tody and is likely to be formal-
ly charged in court as early as
today.

Clashes in | Union: BIC violated

House over
human
trafficking

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

Government and opposition
members yesterday bickered
over which party has done more
to protect children and address
the issue of human trafficking in
the Bahamas as a bill to prevent
the trafficking of persons was
debated in the House of Assem-
bly.

The House had to be called to
order by the Speaker on numer-
ous occasions during a particu-
larly unruly and raucous session.

Offering the latest of their
“crime bills”, the government
introduced the Trafficking in
Persons (Pre-
vention and
Suppression)
Act 2008,
which was
supported by
members on
both sides.

It allows the
Bahamas to
live up to its
obligations
under the United Nations pro-
tocol on human trafficking and
to “provide comprehensive
measures to combat that activi-
ty” — which has been described
as “modern day slavery”.

The Bahamas has previously
been fingered by the United
States government as'a “special
case” in its “Tratficking in Per-
sons Report”.

Listing the Bahamas with
eight other “special cases”
including Swaziland, Iraq and
Brunei, that report, in 2006,
stated: “The government... does
not recognise trafficking in per-
sons as a serious problem in the
country and has not made sig-
nificant eiforts to investigate
trafficking of adults. The differ-
ence between alien smuggling
and trafficking in persons is not
widely appreciated in the
Bahamas, incinding among gOv-
ernment officials.”

The Traffic in Persons
Billis intended to fully imple-
ment one of four mstruments
thaf make up the UN Conven-
tion Aga isnational
Organised Crime, known as the
“Palermo Convention”.

Minister of Education, Car]
Bethel said: “This is vet another
step towards the goal of enhanc-
ing the protection afforded, par-
ticularly to women and children,
and the most vulnerable mem-
bers of society, from all forms of
exploitation and abuse.”

“The Bill, once enacted, will
criminalise human trafficking
whether it takes place from
another country to the
Bahamas; or from the Bahamas
to another cxnintry; or within
the Bahamas.”

The Bill provides definitions
of what clements of trafficking
such as “abuse of a position of
vulnerability”, “child pornogra-
phy”, “debt bondage”, “forced
labour”, and “servitude” and
“sexual exploitation” mean,
among otners, and the penalties
that they attract. Mr Bethel said
it will “remove a recurring
source of international criticism
of the Bahannas.”

He lavished criticism on the
PLP for allegedly “doing noth-
ing to prevent the Bahamas
from being cither a staging
point for transnational crime or
a sate haven for transnational
eriminals’.and failing “to intro-
duce any laws to prevent or sup-
press the transnational exploita-
tion or trafficking of the weak
and the vulnerable, particularly
women and children.

“It is entirely shameful and
negligent that the PLP, while in
office, should have continued to
ignore ibe warnings of the inter-
national community” said Mr
Bethel.

However, MP for Yamacraw,
Meianie Griffin, said that the
former Government “did a Jot
to address the issue of traffick-
ing and to protect children in
particular. She further proposed
that rather than the PLP
neglecting its duty to react to a
major problem, a report by the ’
international Organisation on
Migration (TOM) in June 2005
said it only found “anecdotal
evidence” of human trafficking
being a problem in this country,
adding however that it was a
“growing concern.”

“This issue of human traffick-
ing is new (in the Bahamas)”,
said Ms Griffin, deiending her
party. She added that the Child
Protection Act which was
passed by parliament under the
PLP was recognised by the IOM
as in part addressing the issuc of
trafficking in the Bahamas.

"Restraint" is being exercised
by the Bahamas Communications
and Public Officers Union as they
confer with BTC over the disci-
plinary action taken against 514
employees who took part in two
massive demonstrations.in Nas-
sau and Freeport in August. How-
ever, further industrial action
could be on the way.

Union head Robert Farquhar-
son claimed BTC "violated" com-
pany policies by docking the pay
of 514 workers who BTC claims
engaged in "unauthorised work
stoppages" during the demon-
strations.

Yesterday, BTC executives

stood behind the decision to cut
the pay of workers. They said the
executive board "would not
knowingly violate any agree-
ment."

Mr Farquharson, who said he
was informed of the impending
pay cuts about a week ago, said
the corporation did not follow
established guidelines in deter-

mining which employees should



THE Tribune reported in
Tuesday’s paper that Mario
Pinto, 38, of Sapodilla
Boulevard, was charged with
the murder of Jeffrey Gib-
son. In the page three story,
it was reported that Mr Gib-
son was killed when gunmen
reportedly kicked in the
kitchen deor of , his
Pinewood Gardens home as
he slept with his 23-year-old
girlfriend.

This was incorrect.

Quincy Hamilton, 34, of
Jacaranda Street — not Mr
Gibson — was the man shot
dead inside his Pinewood
Gardens home.

Hamilton was on bail for
murder at the time of his
death. The Tribune would
like to apologise for any

He claimed some employees
whose pay was cut were either on
vacation, off sick, ‘or out-of the
country on training. He said the
union is asking employees who
feel they have been unjustly

penalised to come forward so the |

union can present their complaints
to the corporation "case by case"
under the guidelines of the indus-
trial agreement.

Said Mr Farquharson: "The
executive management of (BTC)
called the BCPOU a few days ago,

about a week ago, and indicated
to us that they had intention of
deducting a number of employ-
ces' salary who were abseit from

on (August) 11th and 12th. We
believe that the corporation is in
violation of the policies of the
company because there are cer-
tain procedures that they have to
go through to establish whether
an employee was away from work
more than their (allotted) time or
not.

"We feel very, very strongly
that the corporation ‘made large

employees’ salary, however, we

ment before we take. any action

lowing the procedures outlined in

sure that‘our members' rights are
not infringed upon and they are
treated in a fair way," said Mr

did not provide the information
on which they based their disci-

they have to provide that infor-

He said union members are
prepared to launch another mas-
sive demonstration if necessary.

"They will, if they have to do it
again, they are prepared to do it
again.

“It wasn't a strike (in August).
If we have to do it again to sup-
port this action then we'll do what
we have to. (But) everything that
we do, even the last demonstra-
tion that we had, was in accor-

He said some employees wer

Yesterday, Minister of State for

Tight race or blowout? Depends on debate

YOU GET the sense in watching the
polls that the presidential race may be on
the brink of breaking toward Barack Oba-
ma. The independents and undecideds are
beginning to make up their minds, and
they’re going in Obama’s direction.

By definition, the folks in the middle
harbour doubts and suspicions about both
candidates. The direction they head
depends on which of those doubts are con-
firmed and which are dispelled. In last
week’s presidential debates, and in the pos-
turing over the Wall Street economic crisis,
Obama has seemed to get the better of
that process.

For example, in a Gallup poll taken last
week, before the House’s rejection of the
bailout package but after John McCain’s
announcement that he was “suspending”
his campaign, 53 per cent said they disap-
proved of how McCain was handling the
crisis, compared with a 43 per cent disap-
proval rating for Obama.

Signs of potential movement are appar-
ent in down-ticket races as well. Two suc-
cessive polls here in deep-red,Georgia
report that U.S. Sen. Saxby Chambliss,
once an overwhelming favourite for re-
election, now holds a lead within the mar-
gin of error over his Democratic challenger,
Jim Martin. Nothing has happened at the
state level to produce that kind of swing,
and I’m still not quite sure those polls are
accurate. But if they are, a national trend is
the only plausible explanation.

In addition, there’s the turnout question.
According to Secretary of State Karen
Handel’s office, black turnout in early vot-
ing has been disproportionately strong.
Black Georgians make up 29 per cent of
our population and slightly less of our vot-

-erturneut, but so far they make up almost
40 per cent of those who have voted early
or by absentee. That’s even more signifi-
cant when you consider that in normal
years, black voters have been less likely
than their fellow Georgians to take advan-
tage of early and absentse voting. 7

All that ferment in the electorate puts a
real premium on Sarah Palin’s performance
in the vice presidential debate tonight.

If Palin does OK, the presidential race
should continue to be fairly close in the
next few weeks, with the outcome still in

TELE aU Certs

doubt but Obama holding the advantage.

But if Palin embarrasses herself and her
party and contributes further to the belief
that her nomination was a monumental
mistake, the slow trending toward Obama
could accelerate significantly, in part
because it would further cement doubts
about McCain’s judgment. The presidential
race would be over and the only remaining
question would be the margin of victory.

So how will we know? We’ll hear pundits
analyze the debate afterward, and we'll
see instant polls try to reflect public opin-
ion. But personally, I think the best gauge
will be YouTube.

Palin and Joe Biden both have the poten-

tial to produce moments in the debate wor-
thy of repeated viewing. If one of them is a
YouTube star come Friday morning, that’s
your loser.

So far, Palin has come across as unintel-
ligent in interviews, and she has been lam-
pooned viciously for that shortcoming.
However, it’s an impression that may not
be entirely fair — the more charitable and
accurate word may be “unknowledgeable.”
Perfectly smart people can sound stupid if
asked to expound on topics they have not
studied and thought about, as any amount
of time watching cable news shows will
demonstrate.

Time and again, Palin has shown no real
familiarity or comprehension of national or
international policy.

In fact, her series of interviews with Katie
Couric are destined to become political
legend.

After one segment, i: &{cCain aide tried
to defend Palin’s performance by claim-
ing that Couric had asked Palin “a series of
trapdoor questions.” But they weren’t trap-
door questions, they were basic questions,
and simply put.

As a result, while Palin has greatly low-
ered expectations tonight, she has also fed
a narrative that questions whether she can
handle the job.

In hunting terms, she may have shot
more moose than she can carry home.

Adequate
funds must
be given to
the police

EDITOR, The Tribune.

I AM delighted to write and
express my congratulations to
my Royal Bahamas Police
Force, it’s Commissioner and
Executive Officers and mem-
bers, whose performance con-
tinues to make me proud of
being a part of this great organ-
isation.

In spite of the harsh criticisms
meted out by politicians, who
apparently blame them for the
country’s murder rate and are
critical of the Commissioner
because his brother is a leader
of a political party, the Talk
Show hosts, who very often
malign the Police and accept
complaints from the public,
without any investigation and
all of those persons, who wish to
see foreign (English) officers
here patrolling Bay Street, Bain
Town, Grants Town and Nassau
Village, our Force continues to
ignore the attacks and provide
Police Service that is tops in this
hemisphere.

I speak very. often to detec-
tives working on serious crime
matters. They are unconcerned
about the critics.and all of those
persons, who for political and
other selfish reasons would like
to see a breakdown in Police
administration.

Imagine Talk Show hosts and
their guests discussing and vot-
ing on the selection at a new
Commissioner of Police while
we have a Commissioner in
office, who is doing an excel-
lent job in combating crime and
dealing with corruption, incom-
petence and discipline in our
Police Force.

Anyone reading and listen-
ing to media reports on Police
success, not only in New Provi-
dence, but in our Family Islands
should be proud and thankful
for the work being done by the
members of this great organi-
sation, whose lives are at risk
each day and night protecting
our way of life. The criminals
and their colleagues are delight-
ed when anything negative is
said about the Force. It helps
their case.

Over the years there have
been some problems within the
ranks of the Force and disci-
pline took a nose dive, at the
same time the expectations and
demands on the Police have

increased to the extent that the
Police are finding it difficult at
times to cope with their normal
duties or prevention and detec-
tion of crime.

The functions related to secu-
rity (both persons and places)
have grown out of proportion,
necessitating diversion of the
Force from normal duties to
vital areas.

The Police alone are not to
be blamed for maintaining law.

The Police have to work with-
in a parameter established by
the Law of the Land and sirict-
ly speaking the Police are to be
treated as a most important arm
of the Judicial System, the oth-
er functionaries of the system
being the Courts, Public Prose-
cutors, Prisons and the Public.
Unfortunately for every failure,
there is a tendency to blame the
Police, while the other agencies
jerk away from their responsi-
bilities. The Police are per-
forming in a society which has
undergone change, a society
that is angry, violent and not
particularly concerned about
Law and Order. We are in the
21st Century. The problems we
now face will be entirely differ-
ent and in some instances
beyond comprehension. The
information explosion, avail-
ability of firearms coupled with
rapid social changes will con-
tinue to make things difficult
for all of us. We have to be
more alert, observant and pre-
pared.

The emergence of organised
criminal gangs and their links
with international adventurism,
brightest brains in the form of
legal and financial advisers and
assisted by technology both in
the form of weapons, transport
and communication shall not be
very easy to handle.

Our Force must be provided
with similar equipment.

Adequate funds must be pro-
vided to equip the Police to
meet these challenges.

During my daily chats with
some Police Officers I have
been encouraged to continue
my requests to government to
provide the following items of
crime fighting saupinent

about the work in their divisions

to the dedicated men and

am proud of you and there are
many others like me.

Parliamentarians pay

PARLIAMENTARIANS paid
their respects yesterday to the
memories of the late Harold Ran-
dolph DeGregory and Norman
Solomon, both former members
of the House of Assembly.

Mr Solomon’s body will lay in
state in the House of Assembly
on Friday, and his funeral is
expected to take place on Mon-
day.

As regards to Mr DeGregory,
preparations are still being made
as to where his funeral will be
held — either in New Providence
or Grand Bahama.

Honouring both men, Prime
Minister Hubert Ingraham paid
respects and offered condolences
on behalf of himself and the gov-
ernment.

Describing Mr Solomon as a
man with a “colourful persona”
and someone who led an “extra-
ordinarily productive life” Mr
Ingraham said that the former
parliamentarian was a person of
many gifts.

Norman Solomon

“He was articulate, he was
imaginative, he was enterprising,
he was courageous, and he was
hard-working. And he used those
gifts to the fullest in his many pur-

suits which included not only the .

achievement of his personal aims

respects to DeGregory, Solomon

and objectives but also the fulfil-
ment of the dreams he had for
his country.

“The country has lost a great
Bahamian. I know that all mem:
bers will join my colleagues and
me in expressing our deepest
sympathy to Mrs Solomon and
other members of the family and
also our gratitude for his life and
service,” he said.

Born on February 10, 1924, Mr
DeGregory was a prominent
entrepreneur in the Grand
Bahama community, founding the
Kay-Shel Stores that have
become a fixture on the island.

Mr DeGregory continued in
his public service when he ran in
1959 as an independent candidate
for the Grand Bahama and Bimi-
ni constituency. After being
declared the winner and serving
for three months in the House of
Assembly, he later lost his seat
in the election court.

Running again in 1962, Mr
DeGregory won, and served for

Owner of Red City Entertainment denies
receiving threats over Lil Wayne no-show

@ By ALEX MISSICK



RED City Entertainment owner Lisa ‘Red’ Tot-
tle has denied rumours that threats have been
made against her life by Bahamians as a result of
the no-show of rapper Lil Wayne at the Poppin
Bottles Concert on Saturday.

. According to Ms Tottle, the plans fell through
because one of the organisers of the event was
impolite to some of the sound technicians.

“That’s not a good thing in this country. You
can’t just deal with people any old way and she
was not very nice to the sound people. If I were
them I would have packed my stuff up too,” Ms
Tottle said. ;

She said the organiser “felt as though she could
come here and make people do things, but it is
not done that way. We gave him (Lil Wayne) the
extra money he wanted, we gave him everything he
needed, but (the organiser) started mouthing off
and they just said ‘forget it’. That’s really why the
sound man packed up, and at that point no one
could fix it since the sound man was fed up ...'I
couldn’t blame the man at all,” Ms Tottle said.

Ms Tottle stressed that she has many friends
here in the Bahamas and has asked them to try
and get the word out that she is not trying to take
a “duffle bag of money back to the US and leaving
everyone here clueless.”

“A lot of people have to be angry when they
don’t know what happened. I would never leave
Pencil and Empress (local entertainers) standing on
a stage like two dancing chickens if I didn’t believe
that he was coming,” she said. .

Lil Wayne did make one appearance in Nassau
over the weekend — at the Aura nightclub in
Atlantis.

Ms Tottle said she felt he showed up to Aura

because Atlantis was able to pay him more money
than Red City.

“On Sunday I was still trying to assess what
exactly had happened. Never in a million years
did I think (Lil Wayne) would sit over there in

Aura and not come over and perform,” Ms Tottle ,

said.

As for offering refunds to the persons who paid
for the concert but were not given the chance to see
Lil Wayne, Ms Tottle said she is taking legal steps
with her lawyers, Higgs and Johnson, to try and
recover some of the money and get it back to con-
cert goers. She said the money did not end up in her
hands.

“I’m going to try to get some funds to some
refunds and if I can’t do that then I’m going to do
something free to make up for it,” she said.

As she has lived in the Bahamas before, about
eight years ago, Ms Tottle said she has a fond affec-
tion for this country and is horrified by what hap-
pened.

“I don’t think anybody will trust Red City again,
but at least I need to do something to show them
that I wasn’t out to steal people’s money,” Ms Tot-
tle said.

She explained that the event was postponed from
the original Friday date to Saturday because of
sound problems. The management for Lil Wayne
and Buju Banton were contacted and both agreed
to the change.

Red City claims that during the day on Saturday,
Lil Wayne’s management requested additional
money, on top of the original fee of $210,000, to
secure his performance.

Red City Entertainment said they agreed and
provided the funds late Saturday afternoon.

Yet the concert went as planned except without
the headliner — Lil Wayne, Red City claims.

Mr Solomon served as a Mem-

from 1967 to 1982. As a new
opposition party began to emerge
in the 1970s, Mr Solomon partic-

Mr Solomon was one of the

shaping of the Bahamas consti-
tution.

Bahamian hoteliers concerned as US credit crisis bites

AMONG the many ques-

Bahamian economy is the sus-
tainability of small hotels in a

Abaco guest house owner says business has been hit hard

try. Stanley White, who runs a
14 room guest house in Sandy

He said: “This has not been

Mr Comito added that the

Last week, members of the
public complained that the can-

that irritated both Bahamians
and tourists.

They said all their complaints
about the problem had been
ignored.

Over time, the white wooden
casing around the centuries-old
cannon had deteriorated and
cracked open.

Mrs Greene said it was decid-
éd to place the cannon back
into the original wooden cas-
ing, instead of a more durable
cement casing, because they
wanted to keep the cannon
itself in vintage and historic
form.

Woodcock Primary has the dis-
tinction of being one of the oldest
primary schools in the Bahamas
and having some of the most out-
standing Bahamians walk through
its halls.

This community school has
always stressed the importance of
education for advancement in life,
particularly for the people in the
Bain Town area where it is locat-
ed.

The school more recently has —

been heralded for its trailblazing
reading programme initiated by
former US Ambassador Rood in
2005 to help students become bet-
ter readers.

The programme started with ten
volunteers from the US Embassy
who visited the school each
Wednesday between 12.45pm and
1pm to read with the students.

Principal of Woodcock Primary
Dianne Huyler said that the read-

i ing programme has positively

impacted the school in many ways.
“The grade level reading scores
have seen a significant improve-
ment, and the students are more
interested in reading,” Ms Huyler
said.
Additionally, the school’s librar-

ian has started an after-school
reading club which has
been embraced by many of the
students,

The students have been
exposed to many prominent per-
sons within the community who
have read to them and reinforced
the message of how important
reading is, Ms Huyler said.

The children’s appreciation of
reading, she said, increases when
they hear about its importance
from successful persons inthe
community.

Although the reading pg@@iod
takes up a part of their luncydipur,
the students do not comp the
said.

Many of the readers ha¥ _&-
lished, bonds with the classes they
have been assigned to and request
that they remain with a class when
they move to another levei.

Since the inception-of the pro-
gramme, students have been read
to by Bahamian celebrities such
as entertainer Ronnie Butler;
Junkanoo icons Gus Cooper and
Percy ‘Vola’ Francis; Olympians
Debbie Ferguson-McKenzie and
Chris Brown; businessman Ger-
shan Major, and former acting
president of the College of the
Bahamas, Dr Rhonda Chipman-
Johnson.

Legendary actor Sean Connery,
famed for his James Bond 007
character, also participated in the
celebrity reading programme.

$60m marketing campaign for tourism

is proposed by CARICOM ministers

A $60 MILLION annual marketing campaign has been proposed by
CARICOM tourism ministers to aid the regional industry.

Agreement to forge ahead with the campaign came at a special
meeting of the CARICOM Council for Trade and Economic Devel-
opment (COTED) on tourism and transportation held in Trinidad
and Tobago.

An analysis to determine a detailed marketing plan and budget
presentation is to be completed shortly and collection of funds for the
AmB n should begin in the first quarter of 2009.

unds for the campaign are to be managed by the Caribbean
Tourism Development Corporation (CTDC) which ig jointly owned by
the Caribbean Tourism Organisation (CTO) and the Caribbean Hotel
and Tourism Association (CHTA).

Cruise lines and non-CARICOM CTO members are being asked to
contribute to the fund.

The tourism ministers’ meeting was a follow-up to the special one-
day session on tourism during the 29th Meeting of the Conference of
Heads of Government of CARICOM held in St John’s, Antigua and
Barbuda July 1-4 2008.

At that session, leaders agreed to the strategy of promoting the
region as a single destination to capitalise on emerging tourism markets.

They requested the ministers to examine the issues related to the
marketing campaign.

The decision to find a way forward for the region’s tourism industry
was taken against the background of competition from other destina-
tions, the price hike in fuel, and cutbacks by airlines servicing the
region.

The special COTED meeting also gave several mandates to the
CARICOM Secretariat which included following-up with the CTO and
the CHTA towards completion of the marketing plan analysis.

That plan is to be considered at a special meeting of the COTED on
Tourism.scheduled for late October.

The cruise lines and non-CARICOM CTO members are to state-at
that meeting whether they would commit to the requested contribu-
tions.

LIS students achieve ‘above average’

results in their international exams

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

FREEPORT — Lucaya Inter-
national School students continue
to excel in international exami-
nations, achieving’ “above aver-
age” results in the International
Baccalaureate Programme and
the International General Cer-
tificate of Secondary Education
IGCSE examinations of London.

According to the school, results
of the IB Diploma Programme
examination surpassed the inter-
national average pass rate of 78
per cent. Of the 16 LIS gradu-
ates, 10 sat the IB examinations.

In late July, results published
showed that 90 per cent of the
graduates of the 2008 IB class
were awarded the prestigious IB
Diploma.

Headmaster Mark Gifford said
the results are an exceptional

achievement for a small school
such as LIS.

“These LIS students now hold
their own among the 30,000 stu-
dents worldwide who were
awarded their diplomas in the
May examinations.

“The LIS IB students and their
fellow graduates have all now
gone on to attend various inter-
national universities and colleges
of their choice, including the Uni-
versity of Manchester, Edinburgh,
Heriot-Watt and Kingston upon
Thames in the United Kingdom,
McGill University in Canada,
Linden University in Missouri
and University of Tilburg in The
Netherlands,” said Mr Gifford.

The former LIS students are

-now enrolled in majors that

include French, drama and pre-
med (second year entry). One is
pursuing a masters degree in engi-
neering.

Results in the IGCSE exami-

nations, which are set by the Uni-
versity of London, are also above
average. The nine students
entered by the school attained
above the national average with
- five A*s, six As, 13 Bs and 14 Cs.
“The school is also very
pleased with the results from the
Year 11 students who took the
International General Certificate
of Secondary Education (IGCSE)
examinations in May. They all
performed beyond our expecta-
tions and produced some very
encouraging results,” Mr Gifford
said. Student Conner Goodrum
received outstanding results with
five A*s and two As. Natalia
Gonzalez earned three As and
three Bs, while Revanno Smith
earned one A, four Bs and one C.
The IGCSE examinations are
taken in more than 100 countries
worldwide. IGCSE courses are
renowned for developing vital
educational skills, including recall

of knowledge, oral skills, prob-
lem solving, initiative, team work
and investigative skills.

Mr Gifford said that IGCSE
examination was introduced for
the first time this year. He said
the students did very well consid-
ering that they had less than a
year to prepare, instead of the
normal two years.

Nigel Kirkby, LIS high school
co-ordinator, noted that the
exams are around the same level
as the BGCSEs that are taken by
many Bahamian students, but the
IGCSE “is one of the most recog-
nised qualifications in the world.”

According to the school, the
IB programme opens the doors
to some of the finest universities.
The IB Diploma enables students

to gain university credits that

could allow them to cither enter
directly into the second year of a
degree or even a masters pro-
gramme.

contact their main office as soon as possible.

Ross University announces GB housing registry

HUNDREDS of landlords and property
owners turned out to a town meeting on Sep-
tember 29 to pre-register and hear how they
could become eligible to provide housing for
the Ross medical school students who will
begin school in January 2009 at the Seahorse
Plaza interim campus in Freeport.

Sandi Cutler, Ross vice-president for plan-
ning and business development, gave a brief
history on Ross University, and explained the
steps necessary for landlords to become listed
with the Ross University rental registry, which
will be available to all Ross students by Octo-
ber 20 through their housing web site.

As most Ross students cannot take time
off from their studies to travel to a new place
and search for housing, the university's hous-
ing referral service will provide them with
trustworthy information and arrange their
housing conveniently, Ross said in a state-
ment.

This service is voluntary for students, fac-
ulty, staff and landlords, however, 90 per cent
of Ross students use it.

The university will also operate a housing
office that will assist landlords in locating ten-
ants.

This is a service that Ross currently pro-
vides at their Dominica, St Kitts, and Miami
campuses, and one that has been very effective
for both landlords and tenants, the university
said.

“The university takes care to inspect each
rental unit, and provides students with accu-
rate and convenient information.

Ross University operates a small amount of
housing at each of its campuses, but does not

rent units from local landlords on behalf of its
students. “The university does not want to
become a large landlord,” Ross said.

An initial 250 students will be living in
Grand Bahama and those numbers will steadi-
ly increase to approximately 500 in 12 to 18
months time.

Most Ross students will stay in Grand
Bahama for two semesters, which is approxi-
mately eight months. Every four semesters
some will leave as others will arrive.

“Landlords that provide quality affordable
housing are generally able to sustain continu-
ous occupancy because of the steady influx
of new students.

“Ross students are mature students who
have completed four years of undergraduate
study and two semesters of medical school

an employee of BIS, came to
be sent to’the media. y

A more senior-ranking
BIS staff member told The
Tribune on Tuesday that it
was not an official statement
from that organisation, but
did not refute its content at
that time.

Mr Vanderpool-Wallace
said: “We’re not changing
any of the plan because we
already have a plan that is
put together, believe it or.
not, for even the most diré
circumstances. There are
some things we would rec-
ommend that if the world
goes to hell in a handbasket,
we have a recommendation
for that also but we obvious-
ly don’t want to trigger any
such recommendation until
we recognise that there is a
need for it.

“And so there is no desire
to do anything except have
an Opportunity to lay it all
out instead of having it come
out in pockets,” he said.

Asked to respond to the
suggestion that now might be
an appropriate time for the
Ministry to offer some reasi
surance about what is being
done to shore up the sector,
rather than postpone any
statements, Mr Vanderpool-
Wallace said: “We happen to
disagree with that.” iB

He likened talking abou
the Ministry’s strategy at this

time to trying to have a cont

versation with someone
about something unrelated
when a relative of theirs ha
“just died.” rd

“If people are not in the
capacity to receive the mest
sage you are telling them, to
go out there and talk aboutiit

Anger after vehicles
are towed from
Dowdeswell Street

FROM page one

Police station, which witnesses
to the towing exercise claimed
was the man who gave the order
to tow, said he did no such
thing. Then, officers at the
Tourism Police station slammed
the door in the Tribune
reporter’s face.

The vehicle is registered in
Mr Collie’s name, but was yes-
terday being driven by his wife,
Mrs Mavis Johnson-Collie.

One witness said: “The offi-
cer said blatantly to us that he
could not tow Sidney Collie’s
car. Now justice is supposed to
be equal. That is not a govern-
ment car. That is a personal car
with an MP plate. They towed
the cars in front of it, around it
behind it and across from it and
that car is parked on a corner.”

Car owners said they were
not aware that the Dowdeswell
Street area was a no parking
zone, nor was there any warn-
ing or indication. that their cars
would be removed for parking.
However, Mrs Collie said she
had received a notice from the
officers.

“They came and said there
was no parking on Dowdeswell
Street. There are no markings
where they removed vehicles.
I just think it would have been
common courtesy of them to
say effective X-Y-Z, no cars
would be permitted to park on
Dowdeswell Street,” Mrs Collie
said. _

Mrs Collie said there were

only two wreckers towing cars.:

She believes this may have
been the reason that her vehicle
was not removed as quickly as
the others.

“They moved two cars at a
time and they may be coming
back for mine. It has nothing
to do with the vehicle plate,”
Mrs Collie said. However, car
owners said they were told by
the officers that they could not

remove her car, specifically
because of the plates.

Real estate administrator,
Heather Joy Albury, said she
just happened to look out of
her office window and noticed a
tow truck carrying a car away.

Ms Albury said neither her
office nor the neighbouring
offices along the street knew
what was taking place.

“If proper protocol was to be
followed, today all vehicles
should have received a warn-
ing on their windshield alert-
ing us that Dowdeswell Street is
no longer public parking. It just
seems strange that after a year
of being able to park on the

road with no problems, just’

today the rule was enforced,
without any further explana-
tion,” Ms Albury said.

“There are no yellow lines
and no additional signs stating
‘no parking’. They wouldn’t
give me information about the
towing companies. They were
all rude to us. They need to
know that we are citizens and
they are civil servants and that
they work for us. They do not
have a right over us. They are
supposed to be working with
us and for us,” Ms Albury said.

Corporal Bell, Officer in
charge at the Tourism Police
Station, said no parking signs
may not be visible, but
Dowdeswell Street is a no park-
ing zone.

“What had happen was the
signs were marked in the road,
however the roads were
repaved and the signage was
covered and never put back by
Ministry of Works,” Mr Bell
explained.

After this statement, The Tri-
bune could not find any rules
or regulations from either Min-
istry of Works or Road Traffic
to prove the entire Dowdeswell
Street area is a no parking

zone.
Chief Officer Deleveaux-at’
the Tourism Station, said to his

knowledge, those persons who
were towed were causing an
obstruction on Dowdeswell
Street.

“From my understanding the
officers indicated the vehicles
caused, or were likely to cause,
obstruction as they were
parked. They made several
attempts to find owners of the
vehicles who caused the
obstructions. The officers used
their discretion to remove vehi-
cles.

“The law is clear that officers
in uniform can remove vehicles
that are an obstruction. It real-
ly doesn’t matter’ where the car
is or who it belong’ to as long
as.it’s causing an obstruction,”
Mr Deleveaux said.

Apparently, this is not the
first time that towing. without
notice has taken place and
police have been careful as to
whose car is towed.

A downtown merchant told
The Tribune yesterday that on
Frederick Street, Charlotte
Street and Bay Street, officers
from the Tourism Station “tow
who they feel like towing and
do not tow anyone else who
may be causing an obstruction.”

He said he has personally
witnessed officers start to tow a
car that was illegally parked,
until they learned that it
belonged to an off duty senior
police officer, after which, they
released the vehicle.

Ms Albury said she feels that
the.citizen’s rights in that area
were blatantly disregarded and
anyone whose car has been
towed, Century Towing and

‘ Jason Horton Towing can assist

them in getting their vehicles
back.

“It’s getting harder and hard-
er to make ends meet and now
the police officers are messing
with our livelihood,” she said.
“All we are asking is why did.
this happen now all ofa sud-
~ den and why were we not given
notice.” es

’ “to ensure that we are work-
;,ing under a solid framework

vided insight into his charac-
ter, motivation, and passion

* Bahamas.
He also addressed the
. importance and prestige of
an affiliation with Christie’s

Bahamas Waste
‘tightening belts’
after 02 loss

* Company says $500,000
cardboard recycling facility
should be ‘up and running’
in six weeks

* But says even small packer |
price increase not enough —
to cover fuel cost rise, as

@ By NEIL HARTNELL
Tribune Business Editor

BAHAMAS Waste yester-
day said its $500,000 cardboard
recycling facility “should be up
and running in a month and a
half’s time”, as its managing
director pledged to “tighten our
belts and hold the line on every-
thing after incurring a minor
$38,586 loss in the 2008 second
quarter.

Francisco de Cardenas told
Tribune Business that the waste
collection services provider was
‘determined to “ride out” the
current economic downturn,
which had resulted in Bahamas
Waste’s margins being squeezed
by falling revenues and rising
costs.

The company’s 2008 half-year
net income was less than a third
of the previous year’s $600,372,
standing at $189,883, and Mr de
Cardenas said that while
Bahamas Waste had increased
prices for its small commercial
packer bin services by 10 per
cent, intense market competi-

. tion made further across-the-
board rises virtually impossible.

will “proba-

bly” only

take a

definitive
decision on the future of its
hurricane-ravaged Inagua
operations, and whether it will
commit the millions of dollars
in capital investment needed
to rebuild them, in the 2009
first quarter, a spokesman for
its parent company said yes-
terday.

George Bochanski, of
Rohm & Haas, told Tribune
Business: “It might be some
time in the early part of 2009
before a decision is made”

definitively on Morton Salt’s
Inagua future. He later added
that “my guess is that it will
probably be in the first quar-
ter [2009]” before anything
definitive happened.

Mr Bochanski said Morton
Salt and Rohm & Haas rep-
resentatives were “in the
process of trying to piece
together what restoration will
entail and cost us” after Hur-

_ ricane Ike caused. millions of

dollars worth of damage to
the company’s Inagua opera-
tions. .

“I don’t think we’ll have
anything definitive for a
while,” Mr Bochanski said,
adding that Morton Salt was
focused on three separate
issues surrounding the Inagua

plant - the clean-up, assess-
ment of the damages and
what it would take to restore
the operation to its pre-Ike
state, and then start the Bud-
geting process to include any
capital investment costs in
Rohm & Haas/Morton Salt’s
financial plans for next year. ¢

The Rohm & Haas
spokesman added that good
progress was being made on
the damages assessment and
rebuilding evaluation, and
told Tribune Business: “What
we're trying to concentrate on
now is getting things back to
some semblance of.normali-
ty.

“The real challenge is to do
an evaluation of what it will
take to bring things back to

what they were pre-hurricane
- to try and close the gap on
what we need to do and work
that into the company’s Bud-
get process.”

Mr Bochanski explained

. that Morton Salt and Rohm

& Haas were in the initial
stages of the Budget process,
which would assess what kind
of capital investment they
were prepared to make in
rebuilding the Inagua opera-
tions.

“This will require signifi-
cant re-investment in the site
that will move us into the cap-
ital investment planning
process,” Mr Bochanski said.

Currently, Morton Salt was

‘Critical’ to get small resorts sector right

IT is “absolutely critical” to get small

Vital to raise niche Bahamian hotels to ‘a level where they can
compete globally’, and give Bahamians ownership participation



Bahamas-based hotels to “a level where
they can compete globally”, a senior
Bahamas Hotel Association (BHA) exec-
utive told Tribune Business yesterday, as
the sector represented “the future of
Family Island tourism” and provided
Bahamians with ownership possibilities.

Speaking as a BHA and Inter-Ameri-
can Development Bank (IDB) financed
project was holding a one-day seminar
for small resort properties, Frank Comi-
to, the former’s executive vice-president,
said the Internet’s development had giv-
en Bahamian properties an opportunity
to compete on a more level footing with
their larger counterparts when it came

water’ on labour case law

@ By NEIL HARTNELL
Tribune Business Editor

BAHAMIAN employers
must take into account prece-
dent-setting court judgments as
well as statute law when dealing
with latLour issues to avoid
falling ito “hot water due to
legal transgressions”, the
Bahamas Employers Confeder-

ation’s (BECon) president aa,

yesterday.
Brian Nutt explained that

both common law and statute .

law, the latter being legislation
passed by Parliament, together
comprised this nation’s labour
laws, and issues such as wrong-
ful dismissal and public holiday
pay - while not included in the
Employment Act - had been
deal with by legal case prece-
dent.



The BECon president also
pointed out that some labour
law areas were now covered by
common law, rather than
statute, because they had been
omitted from the Employment
Act when it was passed in 2001
to repeal the Fair Labour Stan-
dards Act.

For example, Mr Nutt said
that while the Fair Labour Stan-
dards Act placed in statute the
need for employers to pay
salaried workers for public hol-
idays when they did not work,
the Employment Act that
replaced it was “now silent on
that issue” made no mention of
it, As a result, it is now covered
by common law and case prece-

dent.

“That is one of the prime
areas there to be aware of,” Mr
Nutt told Tribune Business.
“We have 10 public holidays a
year, so it’s going to affect a
salaried employee 10 times a
year. You have to pay them 10
times a year for days when they
do not work.

“If they work on those public
holidays, you have to pay them
double time for hours worked.”

Ditto the issue of wrongful
dismissal. The Employment Act

only provides for unfair dis-

missal, but Mr Nutt said
Bahamian employers had to be
aware that wrongful dismissal.
was covered by common law
and,case precedent, and there-
fore provided another avenue
through which a former
employee could bring a lawsuit
against the company.

“There have been a few cases
of wrongful dismissal that have
attracted media attention since

the time the Employment Act

to marketing.

However, the huge jump in operating
costs was not discriminating between
small and large Bahamas-based resorts,
with small hotel operators spending more
than 10 per cent of their operating
expenses covering utilities costs.

When asked about how crucial the
small hotel sector was to the Bahamian
tourism product and overall economy,
Mr Comito replied: “The importance,
particularly in terms of Bahamian par-
ticipation at the ownership level in the
hotel sector, is absolutely critical. It’s crit-
ical we get this right.”

The ultimate goal of the BHA and

A New Savings Culture .

IDB’s Sustainable Tourism Entrepre-
neurial Management and Marketing
(STEMM) project, he added, was “to get
them [small hotels] to a level where they
can compete globally” in a sustainable
economic and envrionmentally-conscious
manner.

“The future of tourism is, in the Fam-
ily Islands in particular, very much tied to
small hotels, and their product offering
and acceptance by the buying public,”
Mr Comito said.

believe to be the best interests of

Directors, as fiduciaries, must
exercise their powers prudently
and properly, and act in good
faith - not just in the best inter-
ests of the company, but also in
the exercise of their powers, be
they corporate, discretionary,
administrative and otherwise.

Directors have a duty to exer-
cise their powers for a proper
purpose, as courts fairly and
objectivelyassess the propriety
of the decisions and actions of
company directors. This is par-
ticularly important given that
the notion of what is actually “in

the best interests of the compa-
ny” is more a subjective test and,
arguably, more suitably deter-
mined by the judgment of direc-
tors who operate and manage
their companies.

Directors must exercise their
discretionary powers indepen-
dently and fairly in all matters,
particularly those involving their
shareholders and in contractual
relationships with external and
internal parties.

Conflict of Interest

While the case of Movitex Ltd
vs Bullfield established that
directors do not have a duty not
to place themselves in a position
of conflict, in and of itself, they
should not place themselves in a
position where their personal
interests, or duties to third par-
ties, conflict with their duties to
the company without the clear,
unequivocal consent of the com-
pany.

Directors may be given such
consent in the provisions of the
company’s Articles of Associa-
tion, or by an ordinary resolu-
tion of the company.

As a corollary to the princi-
ple under which the conflict of
interest notion operates, direc-
tors are also prohibited from
profiting or obtaining some ben-
efit by using proprietary infor-
mation, trade secrets or oppor-
tunities that may belong to or
derive from the company for
which they act as directors.

Duty to manage the

company

Section 84 of the Companies
Act 1992 and Section 40 of the
International Business Compa-
nies Act 2000 detail the duty of
directors to manage the business
and affairs of the company, sub-
ject to any limitations or restric-
tions within the Memorandum
and Articles of Association. In
certain instances, and specifical-
ly for Companies Act compa-
nies, this can be laid ouf in an
unanimous shareholders agree-
ment.

Duty to treat different
classes of shareholders fairly
One of the primary fiduciary

duties of directors is to treat dif-
ferent classes of shareholders
fairly, particularly in cases where
it would be in the best interests
of the company.

As established in the case of
Mutual Life Insurance vs Rank
Organisation, it is imperative
that the shareholders of the com-
pany, as one of the primary
stakeholders within the corpo-

“rate governance regime, be

treated fairly in the distribution
of dividends and, where applic-
able, the allotment of shares;
access to company information;
and in corporate decisions made
in accordance with the compa-
ny’s Memorandum and Articles
of Association.

The challenges of good cor-
porate governance, increasing
shareholder rights, improper
actions by directors and the per-
vasive legal liabilities of risk
exposure for the performance
and propriety of companies,
make it more challenging for
directors to clearly define their
roles in the ever-changing envi-
ronment of modern-day com-
merce.

As recent case law has reflect-
ed, the ambit of directors’ fidu-
ciary duties extends to share-
holders, creditors and employ-
ees of companies, making the
expectations, responsibilities and
accountability of directors that
much greater and more demand-
ing.

Money sent home hy Mexicans
in US drops 12 per cent

@ By TRACI CARL
Associated Press Writer _

MEXICO CITY (AP) —
Mexicans living in the US sent
home 12 per cent less money in
August, the largest drop on
record since the Bank of Mexico
began tracking remittances 12
years ago, the central bank
reported yesterday.

After years of record gains,
remittances have dropped across
Latin America. In Brazil, immi-
gration to the US dropped dra-
matically after the real rose in
value against the dollar.

In Mexico, Mexicans began
sending less money home this
year, economically stranding
many small towns and neigh-
bourhoods that live off the
stipends. The Bank of Mexico
said remittances will likely con-
tinue to fall in the coming
months because of the “difficult
problems the US economy
faces.”

The bank said remittances in
August dropped 12 per cent to
US$1.9 billion. That compares
to US$2.2 billion in August 2007.

Migrants living in the US have
sent home US$15.5 billion in the
first eight months of this year,
four per cent less than the same
period the year before.

A slowing US economy and
stepped up immigration enforce-
ment by the US government,
including record deportations
and increased border security,
are behind the drop.

Remittances are Mexico's sec-
ond-largest source of foreign
income, next to oil exports.

Nearly all of it comes from the
United States, home to 98 per
cent of Mexicans living abroad.
At least 11 million Mexicans live

in the United States.

_Mexico’s economy has largely
weathered the global economic
crisis, buoyed by a national hous-
ing boom and government-fund-
ed infrastructure programmes.

But Treasury Secretary -
Agustin Carstens said this week .
that Mexico will still be hit by
the global crisis, as tourism drops
and continued volatility deflates
oil and other commodity prices.
He has lowered his annual
growth forecast for Mexico to
2.5 per cent.

Mexico’s IPC stock index
rebounded Tuesday, then
slipped 1.5 per cent on Wednes-
day, evidence that the US crisis
is still rattling markets here.

President Felipe Calderon has
boasted that Mexico is no longer
economically dependent on its
powerful northern neighbor,
arguing against the old adage:
“If the US economy catches a
cold, Mexico gets pneumonia.”

But George Grayson, a Mex-
ico expert at the College of
William & Mary in Virginia, said
there is no way Mexico can
escape being hit hard by the US
crisis, which comes as the coun-
try struggles with rising drug and
street violence and falling oil
production. “I think Calderon is
sort.of like a deer caught in the
headlights of four onrushing
tractor trailers,” he said.

While illegal immigration to
the US has fallen off recently,
he predicted that many Mexi-
cans would again turn to the US
as the Mexican economy weak-
ens. “It’s going to mean an out-
pouring of illegal immigrants to
the US,” he said.

Utility bills eat 25% of hotel costs

@ By CARA BRENNEN-
BETHEL ;
Tribune Business

Reporter

UTILITY bills ‘are on aver-
age eating up 25 per cent of
small Bahamian hotels’ operat-
ing expenses, an industry con-
sultant said yesterday, with solar
water heating holding perhaps
the greatest untapped potential
to reduce this cost.

William Meade, president of
PA Consultants, whose compa-
ny has been instrumental in
positioning the Caribbean as an
environmentally-conscious des-
tination, said that using solar
panels would have a tremen-
dous impact when it came to
reducing resort expenses, par-
ticularly as the region relies so
heavily on fossil fuels.

As a result, external factors
will always be driving the hotel
industry’s costs.

Mr Meade, who was address- °

ing Bahamian small hotel oper-
ators at a seminar yesterday,
said that despite the initial
investment cost, solar energy

had tremendous benefits and
would likely repay those costs
itself within five years.

He explained that even a
small amount of usage - such as
relying on it to heat laundry
cycles - would reduce costs sub-
stantially.

A representative from the
Island School at Cape
Eleuthera told delegates that
when they installed solar panels,

it reduced their utility bills by 25.

per cent, and they saw a return
on their investment within two
years.

Mr Meade said that. when
environmental measures are
taken, it is important that the
true impact is measured - for
the hotel as a whole, and the
savings per individual room, for
example.

“It can be as simple as asking
employees to switch off lights,

. putting water on a timer, or

installing panels, but you need
to measure the impact,” Mr
Meade said.

He pointed out that hoteliers
needed to understand their base
low cost, which is the amount

of energy needed to operate at
the lowest level with just one
guest or no guests, as well as
what is needed when the hotel
is at full occupancy.

Mr Meade added that it was
the job of the hotel to ensure
that the message of what they
were doing was passed on to
employees and guests.

He said, for example, that at
one property he worked with,
guests were asked to hang their
towels for reuse as part of the
hotel’s conservation programe,
but the staff had not been fully
informed.of the policy, so
housekeepers would still
remove them. Mr Meade said
this led to the guests feeling
their conservation efforts were

~ in vain.

On the other side, Mr Meade
said guests from major cities
often had a hard time under-
standing water shortages or
why they should conserve on

‘smaller islands.

“It is up to you to get the
message across and make them
understand and feel a part of
the efforts,” Mr Meade said.

Bahamas requires development plan

@ By CARA BRENNEN-
BETHEL
Tribune Business

Reporter

THE Bahamas is in desperate
need of a National Economic
Development Plan to facilitate
its future growth.

Owen Bethel, chief executive
of the Montaque Group, told
persons attending the Abaco
Business Outlogk conference
that every aspect of the coun-
try’s development needs to stem
from such a plan so that devei-
opment is not haphazard.

He added that it was time to
change the mindset Bahamians
_ have, where they wish to have
the money derived from foreign
investors but do not wish to
have the investors remain or
have ties in the country.

Mr Bethel said the Bahamas
has sometimes suffered from
the political tendency to “throw
the baby oui with the bath
water every five years, simply
becanse the baby was born ina

previous administration”.

- However, if there was a:

National Economic

Plan,
regardless of the political party
in power, there would be a clear
and pre-determined path for
where the country should be
and needs to go.

As the economy improves,
Mr Bethe! said, it may also
reduce the level of brain drain

extend the project beyond the

Yesterday’s conference saw
the STEMM project present
small hoteliers with the results
of research done on the sector
earlier this year, with the semi-
nar designed to discuss the
information presented and how
properties could maximise rev-
enues and be operated more
efficiently. oe
The research was carried out

they will remain.

The company was said to
have been angered by the latest
bout of industrial unrest at its
Inagua plant, especially given
the labour productivity and high
operating cost issues it is faced
with in the Bahamas. In addi-
tion, Rohm & Haas is being
acquired by Dow Chemical,
which is unlikely to have been
endeared to Inagua by the
union action and does not have
the same emotional attachment
to the island.

Morton Salt’s closure would -
be disastrous for Inagua and
leave it without an economy, as
60 per cent of the island’s work-
force is employed by the com-
pany and all other economic
activity a spin-off from that. The
island would likely see depopu-
lation if that scenario came to
pass.

Abolish existing LPG price contro

know why they put themselves
through this agony,” Mr
D’Aguilar told Tribune Busi-
ness. “Every time the propane
price goes up [on the world
market], the propane retailers
and wholesalers have to go back
tothe Government.

“It’s not good politically for
the Government to give price
increases, so the propane com-
panies end up making a loss and
subsidising the price paid by
consumers.”

Then, when the price increas-
es proved too great a burden
for the Bahamian LPG industry
to bear, the Government was
forced to “give dramatic” 30-40
per cent price increases. It has
just done this, with the price of
a‘100-pound LPG cylinder sold
on New Providence increasing

from $75 to $100, a 33 per cent
or one-third rise. On the Fami-
ly Island, the same cylinder now
costs $110. ,

To solve the problem, Mr
D’ Aguilar recommended that
if the Government wanted to
price control LPG, it should
switch from the existing system
that imposed a flat maximum
price to one that was based on
LPG’s landed price, with a fixed
mark-up agreed to that retailers
and wholesalers would have a
big enough margin to make
profits.

This was the same model
applied to the Bahamian gaso-
line industry, which allowed
prices to account for global oil
prices. The Government’s taxes
were based upon the landed
cost of fuel, upon which it
imposed $1.16 per gallon and a
7 per cent Stamp Duty. Retail
and wholesale margins were
fixed at $0.44 and $0.33 per gal-

lon respectively.

Suggesting that this should be
the model employed for the
LPG industry, Mr D’Aguilar
explained: “There’s enormous
volatility inthe market, and it’s
extremely unfair to expect
propane companies to accept a

fixed maximum price given that:

volatility. The Government
should do exactly what they do
for gasoline. They should abol-
ish that system and go to the
system on gasoline.”

Mr D’ Aguilar said his busi-
ness, the Superwash laundro-
mat chain, which is the second
largest consumer of LPG in
New Providence behind Kerzn-
er International, would not be
affected by the latest price
increase.

This was because he had
agreed a deal where the price of
his LPG purchases was tied to
the global market price. Once
the LPG was landed in the

‘tightening belts’
after Q2 loss

FROM page 1B

Indicating that further price
increases could make Bahamas
Waste uncompetitive against its
rivals and cost it clients and
market share, Mr de Cardenas
confirmed: “We had a small
price increase on the packer
side, and on the commercial
roll-off side, because there’s so
much competition out there, it’s
a one-on-one negotiation.

“] just can’t increase across-
the-board because I would
shoot myself in the foot.” Mr
de Cardenas added that the $7-
$8 increase on the company’s
small commercial side would
still “not even cover fuel
increases”.

Bahamas Waste’s business -

model has been heavily impact-
ed by the soaring cost of diesel
gasoline, which powers its vehi-
cle fleet, and steel and tyre price
increases. That came through
in the 11.8 per cent increase in

the company’s cost of sales and

- direct expenses, which rose

from $2.445 million in 2007 to
$2.733 million for the 2008 first
half.

Sales, by contrast, dipped
every so Slightly, falling 3 per
cent to $3.879 million from
$3.996 million in 2007. With the
two-way squeeze on Bahamas
Waste’s profit margins, it was
little surprise that gross profits
fell from $1.55 million in the
2007 first half to $1.146 million
this year.

“We just need to try and hold
our own and ride this out,” Mr
de Cardenas told Tribune Busi-
ness. “I have very little control
over what’s going on.

“We’re tightening our belts,
and trying to hold the line on

everything, trying to reduce

costs every way we can, reduc-
ing the internal pilferage that is
so prevalent in our society, and
reminding our employees - all
of them - that it’s tough out
there.”

PROCLAMATION

Bahamas Waste experienced
an 11.5 per cent increase in its
accounts receivables to $1.545
million in the 2008 first half,
compared to $1.386 million last
year, an indication that more of
its customers are having trou-
ble in making timely vill pay-
ments.

Mr de Cardenas described
Bahamas Waste’s accounts
receivables as “a huge prob-
lem”, adding: “It’s always been
a problem, and now you can
imagine.”

He said: “I don’t have the
luxury of being a monopoly. We
feel we have some good, loyal
customers, and will work with
them through these hard times.
We will stay vigilant on our
receivables, knowing what
everyone is going through.”

Meanwhile, Bahamas Waste
continues to make progress on
its biodiesel and cardboard
waste recycling expansion pro-
jects, acquiring four acres of
land adjacent to its existing
Gladstone Road base to house
these facilities.

The company paid $100,000
of the $500,000 purchase price
from its own resources, with the
balance coming from a $400,000
Royal Bank of Canada loan
that is for five years »t 7 per
cent interest.

While Bahamas Waste still
has to hear from the Govern-
ment as to whether its biodiesel
joint venture has been
approved, Mr de Cardenas said
the cardboard recycling facility
should be completed and oper-
ational in six weeks’ time.

“By the time we finish the
building, the land and the
equipment, it’s a pretty sub-
stantial investment; I would say
a good half-a-million dollars
with all the land included,” Mr
de Cardenas said of the card-
board recycling project. .

The facility will aim to recycle
500 tons of cardboard per
month in its initial stages, with
the Far East the likeliest target
export market for this product.

EE ES EEE ee

The Nassau Airport Development Company (NAD) is about to embark ona transformation of the
Lynden Pindling International Airport in Nassau, The Bahamas. :

The design will evoke the spectacular beauty of The Bahamas and the mission of NAD is to operate
the airport to be safe, friendly, clean, efficient and profitable with a local sense of place.

NAD invites interested Contractors and Suppliers to attend a Contractors Briefing to review
impending expansion plans. The airport will be expanded in 3 stages over the next 5 years and





acquire land and property;
demolish or rehabilitate aban-
doned properties; and to offer
downpayment and closing cost
assistance to low- and moder-
ate-income homebuyers.
Grantees also can create
“land banks,” assembling, man-
aging and ultimately disposing
of vacant land to stimulate rede-
velopment of urban property.
“To those areas trying. to
recover from the effects of fore-
closure and declining property
values, help is on the way,”
HUD Secretary Steve Preston
said in a news release. “Clearly,

the intent is to put this money

to work in communities with
the highest need.”

Grant amounts were deter-
mined by factoring each
region’s rates of foreclosures,
subprime mortgages and mort-
gage defaults. Officials also
weighed local abandonment
risk. :

HUD said the states receiving
the most money were Florida,
California, Michigan and Ohio.

The state of Georgia will
receive funds totaling more
than $77 million; nine other
cities and counties will receive
the remainder, roughly $76 m:i-
lion.

DeKalb County, labeled at
“high” local abandonment risk
amid a 6.4 per cent foreclosure
rate, will receive the largest
grant at $18.5 million.

That money could bolster the
area’s fledgling affordable hous-
ing programme, designed to
locate more economical homes

around the region’s business .

hubs, according,to Burrell Ellis,
county CEO elect. More afford-
able housing also could enable
more police officers, teachers
and others in vital — but some-
times underpaid — positions, to
live in the communities where
they work, he said.

“It would give a wonderful
jump-start to our affordable
housing programme,” said Ellis,
who acknowledged even he
can’t afford to live near his job
in the suburban Atlanta county.

Atlanta will receive $12.3 mil-
lion; Fulton and Gwinnett coun-
ties each will gain more than
$10 million. Clayton County will
receive more than $9 million;
Augusta, Columbus-Muscogee
and Savannah, as well as Cobb
County, also will receive mon-
ey.
The statewide foreclosure
rate is estimated at 5.2 per cent,
high, according to HUD, which
estimates the national foreclo-
sure rate at 4.8 per cent.

Georgia was among the Top
10 in the nation for foreclosures
through August, according to
RealityTrac, a California-based
online marketplace for home
foreclosures.

Throughout the Atlanta
region, the sting of the housing
market crunch is apparent both
in abandoned homes and
homes remaining on the mar-
ket longer than usual.

“I’m seeing very much of a
slowdown in my resale inven-
tory and my foreclosure inven-
tory,” said Lin Sadler-Perry, a
Gwinnett County real estate
agent affiliated with Century
21. “Our showing numbers in
the past three weeks are down
at least 50 per cent compared to
what they were, say, six months

“ago.”

HUD estimates Gwinnett
County’s local foreclosure rate
at 4.6 per cent.

Regional leaders have until
December 1 to present spend-
ing plans to HUD. Grant funds
must be used within 18 months.

RealityTrac estimated one in
every 416 American households
received a foreclosure filing in
August.

clients’ tax details

m@ By LYNNLEY BROWNING
c.2008 New York Times
News Service

THE veil of Swiss banking
secrecy is quietly being lifted —
by Switzerland.

Switzerland’s tax authorities,
under pressure from a growing
US investigation into the Swiss
bank giant UBS, are expected
to hand over confidential data
on wealthy American clients of
UBS to the Justice Department,
two people briefed on the mat-
ter said Tuesday.

The move would represent a
significant shift in Switzerland’s
banking secrecy laws, whose
tradition dates to the Middle
Ages.

UBS began handing over
data on hundreds of American
clients with offshore private
banking accounts to the Swiss
taxing authority starting in
August, these people said.

The delivery to the Justice
Department, expected to take
place within several months,
would place American client
names in the hands of federal
prosecutors seeking to build
criminal cases against wealthy
Americans they suspect of tax
evasion.

UBS is under a widening fed-
eral investigation into whether it

helped up to 20,000 wealthy —

American clients illegally evade
taxes by stashing $20 billion in
overseas accounts that were not
declared to the Internal Rev-
enue Service.

UBS declined to comment,
saying only that it is cooperating
with the investigation.

In July, a federal judge in
Miami approved a Justice
Department request seeking to
force UBS to turn over certain
client names. The summons is
thought to be the first issued to
a foreign bank.

Swiss law makes disclosure
of client data or names a crime
unless the Swiss authorities
think that the client has com-
mitted a serious crime, like
money laundering or tax fraud.
Unlike in the United States,
Switzerland does not consider
tax evasion to be a crime,

though both countries have
largely similar definitions of tax
fraud.

Under pressure in recent
months from the Justice
Department, Switzerland’s jus-
tice ministry, taxing authority
and banking regulator have
adopted the view that some
American clients of UBS may
have committed tax fraud.

Justice Department officials
hope to prove that the Ameri-
can clients committed fraud and
engaged in tax evasion by con-
cealing their ownership of off-
shore assets, in part by creating
sham entities and then filing
IRS forms that falsely claimed
the entities were the owners of
the accounts.

US law requires American
taxpayers, including trusts and
partnerships, to report all finan-
cial accounts held in a foreign
country if their total value
exceeds $10,000 during the year.
Not doing so can result in a
penalty of up to 50 per cent of
the amount in the account at
the time. In a new tactic, the
Justice Department is focusing
on failure by UBS’s American
clients to file those reports.

The investigation is being aid- -

ed by a former top UBS private
banker, Bradley C Birkenfeld,
who pleaded guilty in June to
helping a client, [gor Olenicoff,
a property developer, conceal
about $200 million in offshore
accounts that were undeclared
to.the IRS. Both men, who are
US citizens, are cooperating
with the investigation.

As part of the inquiry, the
IRS’s criminal division is scru-

clients of UBS and of LGT, a
private bank in Liechtenstein,
and is likely to send some of
those cases to. the Justice
Department for prosecution,

‘according to two people briefed

on the matter. ,

In addition, about 100 clients
of LGT and of UBS are under
active investigation by the IRS’s
civil division, but their names
have not been referred to the
criminal unit for further scruti-
ny. The IRS and the Justice
Department declined to com-
ment on ‘Tuesday.

The 100 client names and
data came trom a former LGT
employee, Heinrich Kieber,
who in 2002 stole company data
on 1,400 worldwide clients and
later turned it over to the IRS
and other countries.

UBS gave the client records
to the Swiss taxing authority
after being urged to do so by
the Swiss banking industry reg-
ulator known as the EBK. The
Swiss “are taking the view that
the client, not UBS, is mostly
to blame,” one of the people
briefed on the matter said.

The data includes account
names, assets, contact informa-
tion, records of foreign entities
incorporated for the purposes
of hiding assets and client
authorizations of trades. Under
Swiss law, the Swiss taxing
authority is required to inform
UBS clients of any disclosures.
American clients can appeal to
the Swiss tax authority not to
turn over the data to the Jus-
tice Department, a process that
can take weeks or even months.

NOTICE is hereby given that SILVIES ESCARMENT of
PETER STREET, NASSAU, BAHAMAS is applying to the
Minister responsible for Nationality and Citizenship, for
registration/naturalization as a citizen of The Bahamas,
and that any person who knows any reason why

Tuesday’s closing prices were
particularly important to money
managers who report their per-

Part of the answer as to
whether tape-painting occurred
may come Wednesday morning
when shares with the largest
moves reopen for trading. Over-
all, the Standard & Poor’s 500-
stock index registered seven per
cent of the day’s gain in the final
five minutes, while the index of
financial stocks in the group
produced 11 per cent of the
day’s gain in the time period.

-For many stocks, the final
move was striking. Sallie Mae,
formally known as SLM, for
example, rose 10 per cent dur-
ing those minutes, accounting
for more than half the day’s rise.
The brokerage firm Charles

Schwab and KeyCorp, a bank-

per cent in the final minutes,
moves that accounted for more
than one-third of their gains for
the day.

Old Republic International,
an insurance company; XL Cap-
ital, another insurance firm; and
Janus Capital, a money man-
agement firm, all jumped more
than five per cent in the final
minutes, moves that accounted
for at least 30 per cent of their
gains for the day.

There were cases of leaps that
could not be sustained. Discov-

dent and chief executive of the
US Chamber of Commerce’s
Institute for 21st Century Ener-

y.

The initiatives were unveiled
in a Fort Collins presentation
to business and academic lead-
ers with northern Colorado
alternative-energy ventures as
a backdrop.

Jones said Fort Collins was
chosen for the event because
the region’s renewable energy
ventures offer a template for
successful public- and private-
sector cooperation.

“The blueprint is not just a
Washington-based, government
solution,” he said. “It builds on
the principals at work here in
Colorado. The ‘unconventional
partnerships in the public and
private sectors are the key to
finding solutions.”

Jones and other speakers cit-
ed Fort Collins-based ventures
such as Solix Biofuels, a firm
working to commercialize fuel
production from algae; engine
and power-systems developer

S

Woodward Governor; nonprofit
energy technology firm Envi-
rofit; and Colorado State Uni-
versity’s Engines and Energy
Conversion Laboratory.

The chamber’s blueprint calls
for $10 billion in federal money
over 10 years for “clean coal”
technology development, exten-
sion of $15 billion in annual
renewable-energy tax credits for
another eight years, and lifting
of restrictions for oil and gas
production on federal lands and
coastal waters.

Chamber officials said they
have not targeted specific fund-
ing mechanisms to cover the
costs, but said that converting
federal and academic research

‘achievements into private-sec-

tor commercialization will stim-
ulate the economy and create
jobs.

The plan is “a little bit vic-
timized” by the credit crisis,
Jones said, “but it doesn’t take
away from the (energy) prob-
lems at hand and our need to |
find solutions.”

Consider this case where an
inspired falsecard enabled declarer to
make a contract that would otherwise
have been defeated.

West led the king of spades, and it
was obvious to South that the con-

tract was safe if West had the king of

clubs, In that case, a successful
finesse would yield five club tricks
and allow him to make at least four

assumed that South had the A-J alone
and so continued with the queen.
Declarer won, led the queen of clubs
and finessed.

East took the king but was
stymied. He had no more spades to
lead, and whatever clse he returned,
declarer had nine tricks.

Note that even if East had had

been on solid ground, since in that
case West would have had only two
more spades to cash.

Lawmakers are upbeat on bailout revival

@ By ANDREW TAYLOR

Associated Press Writer

WASHINGTON (AP) —
Congressional leaders from both
parties said they are hopeful that
a $700 billion financial industry
bailout that derailed in the
House is back on track for quick
passage, thanks partly to a pro-
vision increasing insurance for

‘people’s deposits. President
Bush planned to call lawmakers
asking for their support ahead
of a crucial Senate vote Wednes-
day night.

“T think the Senate thinks it
has the votes and I think it prob-
ably will pass,” House Majority
Leader Steny Hoyer, D-Md.,
said. House Republican Whip

Roy Blunt of Missouri agreed -

that prospects for passage have
improved, and he said he was
particularly heartened by indi-
cations the legislation has
become more appealing to cons
stituents back home.

The plan for Wednesday
night’s vote was set after leaders
there agreed to add tax breaks
for b isinesses and the middle
class and increase deposit insur-
ancé in an attempt to revive the
legislation rejected by the
House.

“No one is glad we have
reached this critical point. ...
Now is our time to work not as

Democrats, not as Republicans,
but as guardians of the public
trust,” said Sen. Harry Reid, D-
Nev. He said he was hopeful the
measure could clear Congress
within days “so that by this
weekend rolling around, we will
have done what we need to do
for the American people.”

Republican Sen. Mitch
McConnell of Kentucky, the
minority leader, said, “We
believe that we have crafted a
way to go forward and to get us
back on track.”

The White House tried to
build support by warning of the
consequences of failure.

“This morning we’re secing
increased evidence of the credit

General. Meeting of

Registered Office of the Comapany, East Hill Street’in the
City of Nassau on the 30th day of October, 2008 at 11:00

of the Liquidators, Mr. Larry Wilson and Mr. Thomas

Albury, showing the manner in which the winding up of

the Company has been conducted, the property of the

Company distributed and the debts and obligations of the

Company discharged, and also to hear any explanation

along and send the measure to
the White House.

Scrambling to revive a pack-
age that met with bitter derision
among constituents who viewed
it as a giveaway to Wall Street,
the Senate added a number of
sweeteners designed to please
rural lawmakers, including dis-
aster aid for hurricane-battered
states and money for rural
schools. The package was hitch-
ing a ride on a popular measure
to require health plans for 51 or
more employees to give equal
treatment to mental health or
addiction if they cover such ill-
nesses.

Tax

Hoyer, though, said on NBC’s
“Today” show he was concerned
that, the tax additions could com-
plicate the chances of final con-
gressional passage when the leg-
islation comes back to the House
floor for a vote.

“There’s no doubt the tax
package is very controversial,”
he said, adding that “there’s no
doubt in my mind that the Sen-
ate added this because they
thought that’s the only way they
could get it passed.” He said he
wasn’t pleased the tax provisions
were attached to the bill. ;

There are concerns that mod-
erate House Democrats known
as “Blue Dogs” will be repulsed
by the tax breaks, and could vote
no because they have been say-
ing they don’t want to see the
deficit run up even further.

Stocks headed for a lower
open Wednesday, indicating
more of this week’s gyrations as
investors prepare for next big
vote in Washington.

Blunt said one of the reasons
he is more optimistic is that law-
makers are hearing less vocal
opposition from their districts.
He said that calls and e-mails to
congressional offices that were
running about 90 per cent
against the measure earlier now
are at about “50-50.”

“It should be before the
House as quickly as it can,”
Blunt said on NBC. “But we
should not set any artificial time
limit here.” He said that is one of
the factors that doomed the bill,
which was defeated 228-205
Monday, sending Wall Street

into a nosedive with the biggest

sell-off since the post-9-11 trad-
ing period.
Both Blunt and Hoyer said

y

they thought the atmosphere on
the Hill was more conducive to
passage now, saying they believe
an emerging consensus on rais-
ing the federal deposit insurance
to $250,000 has helped signifi-
cantly and that a House vote
could come later this week.
Blunt also said he believes
there’s a better chance of get-
ting the legislation enacted in
the wake of a move to ease
Security and Exchange Com-
mission accounting rules in a
way that would give businesses

_more leeway in how they value

their assets.

Senate Banking Committee
Chairman Christopher Dodd, D-
Conn., emerged from a meeting
Tuesday to tell told reporters,
“I’m told a number of people
who voted ’no’ yesterday are
having serious second thoughts
about it.”

Adding a set of popular busi-
ness tax breaks and legislation
to prevent more than 20 million
middle-class taxpayers from feel-
ing the bite of the alternative
minimum tax promised to win
House GOP votes for the plan
even as it angered moderate
Democrats.

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi,
D-Calif., issued a statement that
suggested she does not like the
move but did not reveal her

. plans. “The Senate will vote

tomorrow night and the Con-
gress will work its will,” Pelosi
said Tuesday. The expected sup-
port of both Obama and
McCain, however, makes it dif-
ficult for Pelosi to ship the mea-
sure back to the Senate with a
different set of vote-getting add-
ons.

The Senate legislation will
contain the increase in the gov-
ernment’s $100,000 cap on
insured bank deposits, part of a
move by lawmakers, Bush and
the two presidential candidates
to try to reassure markets that
the plan will pass this week.

The House vote was a stinging
setback to leaders of both par-
ties. The administration’s pro-
posal, still the heart of the legis-
lation under consideration,
would allow the government to
buy bad mortgages and other
deficient assets held by troubled
financial institutions. If success-

ful, advocates of the plan-

believe, that would help Lift a
major weight off the already
sputtering national economy.

The tax plan passed the Sen- +

“TAKING THE CITY”

TOPIC: “THE PROOF IS IN THE FRUIT”
By: Pastor Kenneth H.B. Adderley

“What’s LOVE got to do with it” Part 1
Read: Galatians 5:16-26: John 15:1-8

¢ We are looking in all the wrong places for Love.

¢ Love must start with you loving yourself, then you give that
love that is within you.

¢ The only people that can really hurt you are the one’s you
don’t LOVE.

¢ Everything in life is connected to LOVE. Every ingredient of

Fruit of the Spirit is a byproduct of Love.

¢ God controls the atmosphere by Love. Without Love we are
Spiritual dead.

¢ Selfishness is a force that takes away from your life and
works against Love.

¢ Love is a force that adds to your life.

WHAT IS LOVE?

¢ Jt is goodwill that ALWAYS seeks the highest of others, no
matter what he does. It is giving freely without asking anything
in return. It is love by choice. John 15:12-17;1 Thessalonians
3:12; John 13:34-35; Ephesians 3:14-21

al TO PRACTICE LOVE? 1 Corinthians 13:1-6
¢ The ability to speak well but have no LOVE, you have
nothing.

¢ The ability to prophecy but have no LOVE, you have nothing.

¢ The ability to feed and clothed the poor but have LOVE, you
have nothing.
LOVE ENDURES LONG:

¢ Human love is conditional, the God kind of love is
unconditional.

¢ Begin to allow the Love of God to build your Relationships

¢ Whenever you decide to give up on others, consider that
God did not give up on you.
LOVE IS PATIENT:

¢ Love is always consistent, It always says “I am here for you
even when you fail”.

¢ Your love will be tested over time.
LOVE IS KIND:

¢ To be kind means purpose to do good to others and make
them happy.

¢ Be kind and forgiving just as God is kind and forgiving.

¢ Repent when you realize that you have been unkind.
LOVE IS NOT ENVIOUS:

¢ Envy always leads to strife, confusion and every evil work.
James 3:13-18

¢. To be envious means “to feel pain or discomfort at the sight
of another person’s success”.

¢ Envy keeps you from rejoicing with other being blessed
by God.

PRAYER

“Father, in the name of Jesus Christ, I confess right now, and
realize that I am a sinner. I repent of all my sins. I change my
heart, my mind, my direction and I turn toward Jesus Christ. I
confess with my mouth that God raised Jesus Christ from the
dead, and IJ believe in my heart that Jesus Christ is alive and

operates in my life. I thank you Lord that I am saved. AMEN”

@ By JEFFARAH GIBSON

SOMETIMES it's hard to soften

our hearts to forgive a person
who has wronged or hurt us - but
forgiveness is necessary, since we
ourselves sometimes offend,
whether directly or indirectly, and
wish for pardon to be extended
to us.

Bishop Simeon B Hall, senior pastor of
the New Covenant Baptist Church, gives
his own definition of what it means to for-
give. “Forgiveness is to extend pardon to
a person found guilty of inflicting wrong
or hurt against another individual.” It is
necessary to forgive, Bishop Hall said, ‘pe
since we also seek forgiveness from our -
heavenly father. s
Based on the word of God, human
beings were born in sin and shaped in
iniquity, and as a result, the only thing
we know how to do is commit an
offence against God or our fellow
man. We all stand in need of forgive-
ness at some point in our lives,
which is why it is necessary to for-
give others, Bishop Hall said.
Withholding forgiveness shows a
lack of spiritual maturity and only
when a person has involved them- >
selves spiritually can the process of
forgiveness become easy and more
sincere. By extending grace to
those who have wronged us we
open the way for ourselves to be

REV. ANGELA
PALACIOUS



WHEN we are busy and the
phone begins to ring, we often
ask someone else to answer our
phone and to take a message.
This person stands in the gap as ~-
it were, and receives a message
that was intended for our ears.

The cross is the way in which
Our Lord and Saviour, Jesus
Christ, takes the message of con-
demnation from satan, takes the
verdict of a death sentence for
sin, and takes the punishment of
spiritual separation from God,
His Father.

Another way in which the
phrase “take a message “can be
used is to have someone deliver a
message to someone else. Many
large businesses employ persons
as Messengers so that mail may
be delivered personally to indi-
viduals or other companies.

Similarly, angels, who do God’s
bidding, are sent to earth to
bring messages to us. Think of
some of the best known events in
the Bible and the roles that heav-
enly messengers play:

e The angel Gabriel announces
to Mary, the Mother of our Lord,
that she has been selected by
God to bear the Messiah in her
womb.

e A host of angels sing to shep-
herds of the birth of the Saviour
in Bethlehem ,and offer praise
and glory to God for this gra-
cious act of love

e In the Garden of
Gethsemane, Jesus reprimands
Peter for drawing his sword and
speaks of the legions of angels
that would rescue him if He so
desired,

° Two angels announce to the
women who come to the empty
tomb that the crucified Christ is
the Resurrected Lord.

the visit of three angels to :

Transformational leaders are badly
needed in the Bahamian Church arena

Bi In part two of this three-part series
on transformational leadership, I dis-
cussed the Latin root of the word trans-
formation, which is essential to under-
standing the meaning of transforma-
tional.leadership. I also described what
I understood to be the mind-set of a
transformational leader. Now, in the
final segment, part three, I continue to
discuss ‘principles of transformational
leadership’, as I see them, based upon
my background and experiences.

THE third principle is “trust” which
is the essential currency of transforma-
tional leadership. In other types of set-
tings, genuine trust is often scarce.
People fake it. They only trust their
own. It's a little different in transfor-
mational leadership.

The 'team approach’ to leadership
practiced by transformational leaders
produces a close-knit team, which
functions like soldiers in a combat
zone. Think of leaders in the para-mil-
itary branches. When a decision is
made, the followers cannot afford the
luxury of debate as to the best course
of action while in a combat mode.
They must trust the commander's
orders 100 per cent, in split second
decision-making. With other styles of
church leadership, trust becomes very
laboured and difficult and one must
often skillfully maneuver through land
mines of deceit, manipulation, self-
aggrandizement and abuse of power.



es





cma

Fourthly, transformational leader-
ship is built on the foundation of
integrity, fairness, and character. The
truly transformational leader is always
seeking the greatest good for the great-
est number and is consumed with
doing what is right and honest, avoid-
ing 'stretching the truth’. For example,
there are church leaders who overlook
or re-interpret passages in the Bible in
order to justify their theology, practices
and programmes which promote the
present level of, or future increases in
the offering intake. This is certainly
not transformational leadership and I
believe that the Holy Spirit does not
endorse it. Jesus Christ took a stand
against it in Matthew 21:13, “...My
house shall be called the house of
prayer; but ye have made it a den of
thieves”.

There are leaders who are more con-
cerned about projecting and maintain-
ing a public profile consistent with
public expectations than anything else;
“up close and personal, and on the
inside”, the practical reality is different
because these leaders can exhibit

the Central Church of the Nazarene,

On October 5, Nazarenes in 21,000
congregations will commemorate the
birth of a Church which came from
very humble beginnings in Pilot Point,
Texas, 100 years ago in 1908; and will
celebrate all that God has done in
allowing the Church's message of holi-
ness and its passion for missions to be
felt all around the world.

How thrilling it will be to sense the
bonds of a growing Nazarene family in
this centennial celebration as we unite
in cultural diversity around common
worship content, each pastor knowing
that almost 21,000 fellow pastors are

behaviours which can be described as
tricky, vindictive and carnal, to say the
least.

A new leadership paradigm is
badly needed.

The time has come - and transforma-
tional leaders are keenly aware of this -
that leaders stop viewing the people
they lead as “followers”. The reality is
that in many cases, ‘leaders are leading
leaders’.

A pastor must take a fresh look into
the faces of the people he /she preaches
to on a Sunday/Sabbath. Many of these
people are leaders in their secular life
and they expect that people on the pul-
pits will regard and handle them as
such. Most pastors probably do not
understand what it means to be a sen-
ior-level manager or an executive-level
manager in the corporate arena - that's
probably why some of their minds are
so small when it comes to leadership. -

Every day, senior and executive-level
managers in the corporate world are
leading leaders - the people they lead
are persons who also lead others in their
chain of command. That affects the
nature and quality of their leadership.
Transformational leaders are leaders of
leaders and - they deeply understand
this - not just leaders of followers. The
leading of leaders requires a paradigm
shift as well as new attitudes, approach-
es, skills and techniques.

Conclusion :

If you read parts one, two and three,
I hope I would have whetted your
appetite with regard to looking at this
interesting concept of transformational
leadership further. My observations
span 30 years of observations and
experiences in the corporate world and
religious arena.

In addressing this subject, I believe I
have helped a lot of people to sort out
some things which may_have troubled
their minds for a long time. I hope I
helped many to feel much more com-
fortable, and to accept the label of a
'rebel”, which people are so prone to
call the 'change agents’. It's OK. Many
thought of our master, Jesus, as a rebel.
You have been in very good company
all along.

Now, I can do no more than that as
instructed by Jesus Christ: “Pray ye,
therefore the Lord of the harvest that
he will send forth labourers into his
harvest”. Matthew 9:38

IN the Hebrew the word or name
Ichabod is: y-ka_bo_d, ee-kaw-bode'
which means the glory is departed.

The day that our government, reli-
gious and civic leaders of this hypocrit-
ical Christian nation truly humble
themselves and seek Father Yahweh's
face, the people with whom they're
leading would have no other choice
than to follow their lead.
Unfortunately, true Godly leadership
is definitely not a part of today's
visionless leadership pool. -

From the political perspective as it
relates to preparing and positioning
the Bahamas for generations to come,
we're in bad shape. As grassroots
Bahamians who want to see their chil-
dren's children as stakeholders in this
beautiful Bahamas we've got to stop
looking to and depending upon the

FNM can't see a_ technologically
advanced Bahamas 20 or 30 years from
now.

What's so scary in all of this is that
both of these political parties have
young and upcoming politicians that
may be aspiring to lead this country
one day; yet none of these young
politicians, except for one or two,
seems to possess the fortitude to see
beyond their visionless predecessors.
By the time these young politicians
mature they would have already been
well trained and tainted by the old
guard.

The type of dishonest practices and

‘

unethical behaviour by
politicians/attorneys over the last 20
years has contaminated just about
every integral structure within this
country - to the point that whenever
any form of detency and integrity
shows up it's normally rejected by the
brainwashed, corrupt society.

There was a time when the Bahamas
was considered to be the jewel of the
western hemisphere, but the above
mentioned types of practices and
behaviour has contributed to the glory
of the Bahamas departing - meanwhile
the egotistical political leaders fulfill
their "all for me, baby" agendas.

It is interesting to know that the
word glory in the Hebrew is: ka_bo_d

ka_bo_d, kaw-bode', kaw-bode':
which has several meanings
1) The weight of God,

3) honour-able .

cians today? :

MEMBERS of the graduating class of
RM Bailey Senior High School recently

visited with alumni Pastor Gadville

McDonald of Life Empowering
Ministries International (LEMI).
Inspired by his message on "Growth",

Carlon Bethell; a member of the class, _

said the sermon was timely as Pastor
McDonald spoke on how spiritual
growth is so important in fulfilling God's
purposeful will on earth.

Growth, Pastor McDonald noted, is a
requirement when one looks at life. If
you are not growing or maturing as an
individual you will find yourself in the
same spot where you lifted off year after
year. One is called to be a positive influ-
ence in his or her community, he said,
but if one is not growing then how can
one be what he or she is called to be?

According to Errol Bodie, Pastor
McDonald, who stands as a role model,
spoke words of encouragement and
inspiration that can be used in everyday
life.

Growing and maturing is a positive
sign, the pastor said, that leads to suc-
cess, to change, and that will assist with
the growth and development of not only
ourselves, but with this great country of
ours.

"We enjoyed a good service at Life
Empowering Ministries International
this past Sunday. Pastor McDonald
brought a message of "Growth" that I
am sure spoke to a number of us," Mr
Bodie said.

' Immediately following the service, the
class enjoyed brunch at Coconuts
Bahamas Grill on West Bay Street.

The Class of 88' meets every Wednesday
at 7pm at the school on Robinson Road. A
formal banquet is planned for Octover 25 at
the Atlantis Resort. Tickets are available for
purchase at the meetings. For more informa-
tion call 302.2783. All members of the class
of 88 are invited to attend.



Is it primarily because the politicians
have a ministry assignment or a seat in
the House of Assembly/House of
Jokers?

With all of the mess that's going on
in this country today it's very depress-

_ ing at times to watch and listen to the

visionless elected “children” in the
House of Assembly toot their horns
and argue about which Government is
for the people, as if they've created
opportunities to help empower the
people.

What the political leaders have
working in their favour is the igno-
rance of the masses. The people over
the last 30 years have been methodical-
ly conditioned to depend almost solely
upon the government; this is one of the
reasons why - like a dog and his master
- whichever government, after eating
or storing up all the meat and then
throwing a little naked bone to the
people - is proclaimed a hero.

It is quite obvious that both of these
“wutless” political parties have very lit-
tle idea of and compassion for what the
average grassroots Bahamian family is

@ BY 1670, all that remained of the
Puritan Eleutheran Adventurers were
ten families spread between Preacher's
Cave, Harbour Island and 'a small
island at the East end of Eleuthera’. By
this time New Providence, recently
granted to the Lord Proprietors, boast-
ed 500 ex-Bermudian inhabitants living
in fear of their lives from Spanish incur-
sions. Their religious persuasion: is not
recorded. These early settlers fled after
the Spanish sacked and burned
Charlestown in 1682.

Two years later another congregation
of Puritans arrived from Jamaica led by
a conventicle preacher, Thomas Bridges,
who became governor. His father-in-law,
a Whig Lawyer named Pattison framed
a new constitution which excluded Jews,
Quakers and Roman Catholics.

The first recorded Anglican Church in
the newly renamed town of Nassau was
probably located on the property that is
now the Greycliff Restaurant. [t is
believed that this church was destroyed
by the Spanish attack of 1703.

On his arrival in 1721, Governor
Phenney repaired Fort Nassau for the
security of the people and planned a lit-
tle church for their moral well-being. In
those days the Anglican Church was
closely bound to royal authority and
acted in tandem with local government
in recording births, marriages, deaths as
well as giving spiritual guidance.

Phenney was assisted by Thomas
Curphey, appointed as chaplain to the
armed forces in New Providence. Over
and above his army duties, Curphey

' worked zealously to perform the rites of
passage to the local 60 families. And at
his own expense paid an annual visit to
Harbcur Island and Eleuthera to preach
and perform marriages, baptisms and
burials.

Curphey began a subscription with

the site of the present day Christ Church
Cathedral. It is described as a shingled
five windowed nave capable of holding
300 people. It had a three windowed
chancel and porch - its spire was topped
with gilded vane.

Phenney then requested from the
Crown a plate, communion table and
church ornamenis, which didn't arrive
until Woodes Rogers returned in 1729.
Further furnishings were given or
bequeathed by residents. John Graves,
collector of taxes, willed his large Bible
in Quarto, one new large Damask table
Moth and two Damask napkins. The
church was maintained by imposing 40
shilling fines for misdemeanours by the
inhabitants.

With the importation of 295 slaves in
1721, Governor Phenney felt that he
needed to tighten up sccial/racial rela-
tions. The 1723 regulations stipulated
that slaves should be baptized and sent
to Rev Curphey on Saturday and
Sunday for instruction in the principles
of the Christian religion. Phenney led by
example and had his eight slaves bap-
tized. Rev Curphey also made a special
trip to Harbour Island to baptize the
mulatto Force family - an event attend-
ed by all the leading families at Harbour
Island.

Although there was no school or

set aside for the instruction of the chil-
dren and the worship of God, and
Samuel Flavell, the schcoimaster on the
island, read prayers and a sermon every
Sunday. Governor Phenney re marked,
"Flavell, a sober person, reads the
prayer book daily at Harbour Island -
North Eleuthera - to interest the chil-
dren, making it his whole employment
with what books he has of his own. |
have given him a New ‘festament and
Tillotson's sermons."

In 1729, the Church of England in the
Bahamas was established by law under
the Bishop of London, Edmund Gibson
and missionaries sent by “The United
Society for the Propagation of the
Gospel’ (USPG) which continued the
yearly round of baptisms, marriages and
burials.

Woodes Rogers brought in Reverend
Guy from his mission post at St
Andrew's in: Carolina to replace
Curphey. In the two months he stayed in
the Bahamas he baptized 128 people,
mostly children, and administered holy
sacrament twice, but was disappointed
that he had only 10 communicants each
time.

The president, council and infivential
inhabitants informed the USPG about
their commodius church and that they
could now offer a ‘convenient house for
a clergyman of the Church of England’
at a salary of £40 per year. Rev William
Smith arrived to find that in addition to
his usual religious duties he was to assist
to conduct a census to bring the records
up to date as they had fallen into a
deplorable state.

It is interesting to note that an old
map of New Providence, circa 1750,
shows a church located in a village at
Old Fort Bay. The settlers there had
been brought over by Wooded Rogers
on a three year contract as agricultural
labourers. They were termed
Huguenots -Protestants expelled from

Switzerland by the Roman Catholic
authorities.

But by 1761, it was reported that the
new inissionary, Reverend Carter, oper-
ated from the only church in Nassau in
an Anglican parish that embraced New
Providence, Eleuthera and Harbour
Island. Moreover, Carter was paying
regular visits to a ‘house for public wor-
ship’ for his numerous eastward parish-
ioners as only one of them had a pew in
Christ Church. This was probably the
nucleus of what was to be St Matthew: s
Parish.

Recognizing that 'more ehouner: in
the vineyard’ were needed, Rev Carter
and Governor Shirley were inspired to
write to the USPG:

I have often regretted the want of a cat-
echist’ or schoolmaster on Harbour
fsland and Istathera...They are both at
present in a lamentable state....

They may be reckoned among the
dark corners of the earth with iile hopes
of being enlightened as long as
they remain in their present state.

e In part three next week we will dis-
cover how the USPG, formed in 1701,
answered the call, and Harbour Island
gained its own minister, Richard Moss,
and became the head of the newly con-
stituted St John's Parish in the same
year, 1767/8.

@ | WOULD like to share a story
with you that | heard sometime ago:
An associate pastor, new to the
parish, saw the need to start a Bible
study group where people could
learn to read the word of God and
deepen their faith. After service one
morning he presented the idea to the
people and received a unanimous
and enthusiastic feedback.

"It is a wonderful idea," they all
said.

Then the: young associate pastor
went and told the pastor that the
people. were happy with the idea of
starting a Bible class. The older and
more experienced pastor told the
associate to rephrase the question
and consult the people again.

The following day the young priest
asked the same congregation, "Who
would like to sign up for the Bible
study group?" Only four hands went
up. Then it dawned on the young

man that saying yes to an idea is one »

thing and doing what is required is
another.

In the gospel last week we heard
Jesus telling the parable of two sons
who say one thing and do another.

Asked by the father to go and
work in the vineyard the first son
said no, but later reconsidered his
decision and did the work. The sec-
ond son on the other hand courte-
ously said yes to the father but failed
to do the work. Who actually did
what his father wanted? Clearly it is
the first son, the same one who had
said no to him.

Jesus told this parable in the tem-
ple. in Jerusalem just days before
they would arrest him and put him to
death. For three years he had been

going through because if they did, dur-
ing the various sittings of the House of
Assembly they would be more focused
on bringing relief and positive changes

rather than these elected fools arguing
about which is the better Government:
FNM or PLP

I agree that not all politicians were
born with a silver spoon in their mouths
and might I say also that there is noth-
ing wrong with being so born. But what
we've got today are leaders who are

preaching to the people, inviting
them to repent and believe the Good
News. He had discovered that, in
fact, it. was public sinners like the
tax-collectors and prostitutes who
responded to his invitation.

The religious leaders, the scribes
and Pharisees, even after they per-
ceived the divine origin of the mes-
sage of Jesus, still opposed it rather
than believing it. They had greeted
John the Baptist with the same atti-
tude. They knew John's teaching was
from God but they would not admit
it. As Jesus said to them, “even after
you saw it, you did not change your
minds and believe him" (Matthew
21:32).

Religious people are sometimes so
bent on proving that they are right
that they fail to hear the voice of rea-
son and the voice of God.

The parable likens the tax-collec-
tors and prostitutes to the son who
first said no, but later did what the
father wanted, and the Pharisees and
scribes to the son who enthusiastical-
ly said yes, but did not go. One group
has no fine words but they have good
deeds. The other group has fine
words but no corresponding good
deeds. They represent two kinds of
people and the different ways they
try to relate to God.

There are those who have no fine
words: like those who profess no
faith, who do not go to church, who
do not pray. But sometimes when
there is injustice in the city they will

totally out of touch with the reality and
plight of the poor - Mr Ingraham/Mr
Christie - times have drastically
changed from when you were little
boys; some of your actions and behav-
iours may not have, but times have.

If the politicians really want to con-
nect, identify with and speak with
authority and conviction on behalf of
the grassroots they should leave their
fine homes for a month and live with
some of the people in Bain Town,
Coconut Grove, Kemp Road, etc.

As a result of this living experience
among the people I can assure you that
the prime minister and the leader of the
opposition would greatly reconsider
the little $100 - $200 increase they're
proudly boasting about in helping the
people.

: Forgiveness is earned and it takes time.

“Forgiveness is not cheap and it also

ITH gospel heavyweights Donnie

McClurkin, Andrae Crouch and Mary

Mary on board, the 2008 BahamafFest,
slated for Wednesday, October 8, at 5pm is expected
to see thousands of Bahamians descend on Clifford
Park for the mega extravaganza.

The one day grand concert/minister-
ing opportunity is a part of PraiseFest
Ministries’ "Cruise with a Cause" that
aims to "take a vacation and change a
nation". Landing in Nassau for the sec-
ond straight year on a mission to spread
the word of God - the group will be
aboard Carnival's Imagination from
October 6-10 - PraiseFest Ministries,
along with the Bahamas Ministry of
Tourism and the Bahamas Christian
Council, will be throwing a bash to top
all bashes in an effort to bring the life
changing message of Jesus Christ to
Bahamians.

This year two famous speakers,
Paula White and Dr Tony Evans, along
with more than tem musical performers,
including Byron Cage and Michael
English, will be sharing their gifts with
the Bahamian crowd.

Last year, the group's mission proved
so Stccessful, with 4,100 new pledges to
Christ, that they decided to visit the
Bahamas again, with plans of making
the mission an annual event. The fact
that they could positively affect two per
cent of the population in just one day,
Dr Matthew Dunaway, president of
PraiseFest Ministries, said, is a blessing
from God.

It is also a blessing, he said, for the
missionaries to reach out to an entire
nation, something that would take
months or years in the US because of
that country's size and state of multi-
faith. The new allegiances to Christ are
seen as a huge accomplishment when it
affects such a high percentage of the
population.

"There are too many distractions in
this time and age, and PraiseFest will
be providing something positive at a
time when rates of ‘truancy from
Sunday school' is on the rise," he said,
adding that "We can turn around what
we see happening in our youth," from
violence, to teenage pregnancy, murder
rates and stealing.

Some 20,000 Bahamians attended
BahamaFest 2007, which was held: in
June. This year the event will be in
October, a time that is decidedly more

available for students - who traditional-
ly face exams in June - which means
that the ministry event has the possibil-
ity of an even higher rate of atten-
dance.

At this year's BahamaFest free
school supplies will be distributed to
Bahamian students as long as they last,
and the lineup for the event is one of
the biggest ever assembled for a one
night performance full of Grammy
Award winners. Speaking at the event
will be Paula White and Dr Tony
Evans. And performing will be Michael
English, Ayiesha Woods, Anthony
Evans, Larnelle Harris, The Crabb
Family, Mary Mary, Byron Cage,
Martha Munizzi, Donnie McClurkin
and Andrae Crouch among others.

"This is a family event, and we want
to bless the Bahamian people. We
would love for this event to be the
largest assembling of Bahamians ever,"
Dr Dunaway said, encouraging all fam-
ilies, teachers and priests to come out
for what has been labeled - a free, fun,
family event.

Mr Dow Warner, the founding direc-

tor of the Sons of Salvation Ministry
and a partner of PraiseFest Ministries,
said it is an amazing opportunity to
help bring groups in and "to touch the
youth of a nation in a day". This is also
an opportunity for the American minis-
ters, he said, to show the US what can
happen when people take Christ into
their hearts, and what happens when
people join together to believe.

While BahamaFest 2008 is expected
to be a great opportunity to hear the
simple message of Jesus Christ both
through the word and song, evangelism
teams will visiting Nassau schools and
communities throughout the day. Each
school visited is expected to have artists
and speakers who will conduct assem-
blies.

Freeport —
Container Port
staff ‘fall ill after.
being exposed to
- noxious odour’ |

A WORKER at the Freeport
Container Port has called on
Government to investigate
whether the port is a safe place
to work after an alleged 46 peo-
ple had to be sent to hospital
Tuesday suffering from:stom-
ach cramps, burning eyes and
vomiting.

The source said the workers
fell ill after being exposed to a
“noxious odour” being emitted
from a container on the site.

Officials from the Freeport
Container Port confirmed yes-
terday that there was a prob-
lem with the container, which
housed chemicals used to man-
ufacture rubber plastic and resin
products.

They said the container,
which has now been “isolated”
in preparation for onward ship-
ping, showed no signs of leak--
age but they believe the wind

direction may have helped stir
the odour.

The worker said an “ambu-
lance full” of workers had to be
taken from the port, while the
container port bus had to make
two trips to take sickened work-
ers to hospital.

“We don’t know where this
box is that they took off the
property last night. ’m serious,
I want the government to look
into that,” said the worker.

“It’s questionable if the gen-
eral public is at risk. We don’t
know if we take this odour ,
home to our family what is
going to happen...this matter
should not be taken lightly,”
said the worker.

He called on Government “to
go down there and conduct
toxicology reports so we
would know if it’s safe to work
there.”

FRAIL Lyford Cay resident
Robert Halat was brought

charged with gambling at
Atlantis on his 78th birthday.
The retired American citizen,
who has lived in the Bahamas
with his French wife for 18
years, was charged with play-

game at Atlantis casino in Par-

Mr Halat, dressed in a pale

to the charge of gambling as a

Bahamian citizen and explained
to magistrate Guillimina Archer
that he is not a Bahamian citi-

turtle conservation

SEA Turtle conservation initiatives announced
by the Department of Marine Resources this
week show the government's commitment to
safeguard our land and sea, the Bahamas Nation-

al Trust said.

Government announced it will ban the com-
mercial harvest, purchase or sale of all species of
marine turtle at the end of this year and ban all
harvesting of turtles by April 30, 2009.

The BNT has long called for government to
abolish the commercial harvest of endangered
sea turtles, making an official recommendation to

government in 1993.

And earlier this year, the BNT pressed for a
total ban on taking or selling of sea turtles in the

Bahamas.

A BNT spokesman said: "At this point we
would have preferred to see an immediate total
ban, but we understand the government's rea-
soning for this phased approach.

"We think it is an important and welcome’ step
forward in marine conservation.

"Turtles are a vital part of Bahamian marine
ecology and an important part of our future,
which is why we need to prohibit harvesting."

Sea turtle numbers fall during migration, when
they are threatened by human exploitation, when
they are not able to lay eggs on developed beach-
es, and sea turtle hatchlings take up to 30 years to

reach reproductive age.

DRUG Enforcement Unit
officers on Tuesday arrested a
19-year-old man in connection
with alleged marijuana and
firearm possession.

Assistant Superintendent
Walter Evans said the suspect
tried to throw a package of
marijuana onto the ground
after he saw police officers in
the Kemp Road area.

Officers retrieved the
object, examined it and °
reportedly found “40 pieces”
of marijuana wrapped in silver
foil.

A search was then carried
out at the suspect's Strachan's
Alley home where police
found a 9mm handgun with
nine live rounds of ammuni-
tion. -

The suspect is in police cus-
tody and is likely to be formal-

Clashes in | Union: BIC violated

House over
human
trafficking

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

Government and opposition
members yesterday bickered
over which party has done more
to protect children and address
the issue of human trafficking in
the Bahamas as a bill to prevent
the trafficking of persons was
debated in the House of Assem-
bly.

The House had to be called to
order by the Speaker on numer-
ous occasions during a particu-
larly unruly and raucous session.

Offering the latest of their
“crime bills”, the government
introduced the Trafficking in
Persons (Pre-
vention and
Suppression)
Act 2008,
which was
supported by
members on
both sides.

It allows the
Bahamas to
live up to its
obligations
under the United Nations pro-
tocol on human trafficking and
to “provide comprehensive
measures to combat that activi-
ty” — which has been described
as “modern day slavery”.

The Bahamas has previously
been fingered by the United
States government as'a “special
case” in its “Tratficking in Per-
sons Report”.

Listing the Bahamas with
eight other “special cases”
including Swaziland, Iraq and
Brunei, that report, in 2006,
stated: “The government... does
not recognise trafficking in per-
sons as a serious problem in the
country and has not made sig-
nificant eiforts to investigate
trafficking of adults. The differ-
ence between alien smuggling
and trafficking in persons is not
widely appreciated in the
Bahamas, incinding among gOv-
ernment officials.”

The Traffic in Persons
Billis intended to fully imple-
ment one of four mstruments
thaf make up the UN Conven-
tion Aga isnational
Organised Crime, known as the
“Palermo Convention”.

Minister of Education, Car]
Bethel said: “This is vet another
step towards the goal of enhanc-
ing the protection afforded, par-
ticularly to women and children,
and the most vulnerable mem-
bers of society, from all forms of
exploitation and abuse.”

“The Bill, once enacted, will
criminalise human trafficking
whether it takes place from
another country to the
Bahamas; or from the Bahamas
to another cxnintry; or within
the Bahamas.”

The Bill provides definitions
of what clements of trafficking
such as “abuse of a position of
vulnerability”, “child pornogra-
phy”, “debt bondage”, “forced
labour”, and “servitude” and
“sexual exploitation” mean,
among otners, and the penalties
that they attract. Mr Bethel said
it will “remove a recurring
source of international criticism
of the Bahannas.”

He lavished criticism on the
PLP for allegedly “doing noth-
ing to prevent the Bahamas
from being cither a staging
point for transnational crime or
a sate haven for transnational
eriminals’.and failing “to intro-
duce any laws to prevent or sup-
press the transnational exploita-
tion or trafficking of the weak
and the vulnerable, particularly
women and children.

“It is entirely shameful and
negligent that the PLP, while in
office, should have continued to
ignore ibe warnings of the inter-
national community” said Mr
Bethel.

However, MP for Yamacraw,
Meianie Griffin, said that the
former Government “did a Jot
to address the issue of traffick-
ing and to protect children in
particular. She further proposed
that rather than the PLP
neglecting its duty to react to a
major problem, a report by the ’
international Organisation on
Migration (TOM) in June 2005
said it only found “anecdotal
evidence” of human trafficking
being a problem in this country,
adding however that it was a
“growing concern.”

“This issue of human traffick-
ing is new (in the Bahamas)”,
said Ms Griffin, deiending her
party. She added that the Child
Protection Act which was
passed by parliament under the
PLP was recognised by the IOM
as in part addressing the issuc of
trafficking in the Bahamas.

"Restraint" is being exercised
by the Bahamas Communications
and Public Officers Union as they
confer with BTC over the disci-
plinary action taken against 514
employees who took part in two
massive demonstrations.in Nas-
sau and Freeport in August. How-
ever, further industrial action
could be on the way.

Union head Robert Farquhar-
son claimed BTC "violated" com-
pany policies by docking the pay
of 514 workers who BTC claims
engaged in "unauthorised work
stoppages" during the demon-
strations.

Yesterday, BTC executives

stood behind the decision to cut
the pay of workers. They said the
executive board "would not
knowingly violate any agree-
ment."

Mr Farquharson, who said he
was informed of the impending
pay cuts about a week ago, said
the corporation did not follow
established guidelines in deter-

mining which employees should



THE Tribune reported in
Tuesday’s paper that Mario
Pinto, 38, of Sapodilla
Boulevard, was charged with
the murder of Jeffrey Gib-
son. In the page three story,
it was reported that Mr Gib-
son was killed when gunmen
reportedly kicked in the
kitchen deor of , his
Pinewood Gardens home as
he slept with his 23-year-old
girlfriend.

This was incorrect.

Quincy Hamilton, 34, of
Jacaranda Street — not Mr
Gibson — was the man shot
dead inside his Pinewood
Gardens home.

Hamilton was on bail for
murder at the time of his
death. The Tribune would
like to apologise for any

be penalised.

He claimed some employees
whose pay was cut were either on
vacation, off sick, ‘or out-of the
country on training. He said the
union is asking employees who
feel they have been unjustly

penalised to come forward so the |

union can present their complaints
to the corporation "case by case"
under the guidelines of the indus-
trial agreement.

Said Mr Farquharson: "The
executive management of (BTC)
called the BCPOU a few days ago,

In brief

about a week ago, and indicated
to us that they had intention of
deducting a number of employ-
ces' salary who were abseit from
work more than their lunch period
on (August) 11th and 12th. We
believe that the corporation is in
violation of the policies of the
company because there are cer-
tain procedures that they have to
go through to establish whether
an employee was away from work
more than their (allotted) time or
not.

"We feel very, very strongly
that the corporation ‘made large
amount of mistakes in deducting
employees’ salary, however, we
are restrained to make sure that
we follow the industrial agree-
ment before we take. any action
against the corporation. We're fol-
lowing the procedures outlined in
the industrial agreement to make
sure that‘our members' rights are
not infringed upon and they are
treated in a fair way," said Mr
Farquharson, also claiming BTC
did not provide the information
on which they based their disci-
plinary action.

Magistrate’s Court yesterday on charges of stealing and causing

grievous harm. .

According to court dockets, it is alléped that on Sunday, August
31, Dereck Russell caused grievous harm to Dexton Curry.

It is further alleged that on the same day, Russell stole $6,000.

they base their (cuts) on and
they have to provide that infor-
mation to us."

He said union members are
prepared to launch another mas-
sive demonstration if necessary.

"They will, if they have to do it
again, they are prepared to do it
again.

“It wasn't a strike (in August).
If we have to do it again to sup-
port this action then we'll do what
we have to. (But) everything that
we do, even the last demonstra-
tion that we had, was in accor-

dance with the industrial agree
ment. That was not an illegal
strike — everybody has the righ
to do what they want on their

He said some employees wer
docked a half hour, some docked
fifteen minutes, etc. It's a rang
— it's no one figure.

Yesterday, Minister of State for

Tight race or blowout? Depends on debate

YOU GET the sense in watching the
polls that the presidential race may be on
the brink of breaking toward Barack Oba-
ma. The independents and undecideds are
beginning to make up their minds, and
they’re going in Obama’s direction.

By definition, the folks in the middle
harbour doubts and suspicions about both
candidates. The direction they head
depends on which of those doubts are con-
firmed and which are dispelled. In last
week’s presidential debates, and in the pos-
turing over the Wall Street economic crisis,
Obama has seemed to get the better of
that process.

For example, in a Gallup poll taken last
week, before the House’s rejection of the
bailout package but after John McCain’s
announcement that he was “suspending”
his campaign, 53 per cent said they disap-
proved of how McCain was handling the
crisis, compared with a 43 per cent disap-
proval rating for Obama.

Signs of potential movement are appar-
ent in down-ticket races as well. Two suc-
cessive polls here in deep-red,Georgia
report that U.S. Sen. Saxby Chambliss,
once an overwhelming favourite for re-
election, now holds a lead within the mar-
gin of error over his Democratic challenger,
Jim Martin. Nothing has happened at the
state level to produce that kind of swing,
and I’m still not quite sure those polls are
accurate. But if they are, a national trend is
the only plausible explanation.

In addition, there’s the turnout question.
According to Secretary of State Karen
Handel’s office, black turnout in early vot-
ing has been disproportionately strong.
Black Georgians make up 29 per cent of
our population and slightly less of our vot-

-erturneut, but so far they make up almost
40 per cent of those who have voted early
or by absentee. That’s even more signifi-
cant when you consider that in normal
years, black voters have been less likely
than their fellow Georgians to take advan-
tage of early and absentse voting. 7

All that ferment in the electorate puts a
real premium on Sarah Palin’s performance
in the vice presidential debate tonight.

If Palin does OK, the presidential race
should continue to be fairly close in the
next few weeks, with the outcome still in

TELE aU Certs

doubt but Obama holding the advantage.

But if Palin embarrasses herself and her
party and contributes further to the belief
that her nomination was a monumental
mistake, the slow trending toward Obama
could accelerate significantly, in part
because it would further cement doubts
about McCain’s judgment. The presidential
race would be over and the only remaining
question would be the margin of victory.

So how will we know? We’ll hear pundits
analyze the debate afterward, and we'll
see instant polls try to reflect public opin-
ion. But personally, I think the best gauge
will be YouTube.

Palin and Joe Biden both have the poten-

tial to produce moments in the debate wor-
thy of repeated viewing. If one of them is a
YouTube star come Friday morning, that’s
your loser.

So far, Palin has come across as unintel-
ligent in interviews, and she has been lam-
pooned viciously for that shortcoming.
However, it’s an impression that may not
be entirely fair — the more charitable and
accurate word may be “unknowledgeable.”
Perfectly smart people can sound stupid if
asked to expound on topics they have not
studied and thought about, as any amount
of time watching cable news shows will
demonstrate.

Time and again, Palin has shown no real
familiarity or comprehension of national or
international policy.

In fact, her series of interviews with Katie
Couric are destined to become political
legend.

After one segment, i: &{cCain aide tried
to defend Palin’s performance by claim-
ing that Couric had asked Palin “a series of
trapdoor questions.” But they weren’t trap-
door questions, they were basic questions,
and simply put.

As a result, while Palin has greatly low-
ered expectations tonight, she has also fed
a narrative that questions whether she can
handle the job.

In hunting terms, she may have shot
more moose than she can carry home.

Adequate
funds must
be given to
the police

EDITOR, The Tribune.

I AM delighted to write and
express my congratulations to
my Royal Bahamas Police
Force, it’s Commissioner and
Executive Officers and mem-
bers, whose performance con-
tinues to make me proud of
being a part of this great organ-
isation.

In spite of the harsh criticisms
meted out by politicians, who
apparently blame them for the
country’s murder rate and are
critical of the Commissioner
because his brother is a leader
of a political party, the Talk
Show hosts, who very often
malign the Police and accept
complaints from the public,
without any investigation and
all of those persons, who wish to
see foreign (English) officers
here patrolling Bay Street, Bain
Town, Grants Town and Nassau
Village, our Force continues to
ignore the attacks and provide
Police Service that is tops in this
hemisphere.

I speak very. often to detec-
tives working on serious crime
matters. They are unconcerned
about the critics.and all of those
persons, who for political and
other selfish reasons would like
to see a breakdown in Police
administration.

Imagine Talk Show hosts and
their guests discussing and vot-
ing on the selection at a new
Commissioner of Police while
we have a Commissioner in
office, who is doing an excel-
lent job in combating crime and
dealing with corruption, incom-
petence and discipline in our
Police Force.

Anyone reading and listen-
ing to media reports on Police
success, not only in New Provi-
dence, but in our Family Islands
should be proud and thankful
for the work being done by the
members of this great organi-
sation, whose lives are at risk
each day and night protecting
our way of life. The criminals
and their colleagues are delight-
ed when anything negative is
said about the Force. It helps
their case.

Over the years there have
been some problems within the
ranks of the Force and disci-
pline took a nose dive, at the
same time the expectations and
demands on the Police have

increased to the extent that the
Police are finding it difficult at
times to cope with their normal
duties or prevention and detec-
tion of crime.

The functions related to secu-
rity (both persons and places)
have grown out of proportion,
necessitating diversion of the
Force from normal duties to
vital areas.

The Police alone are not to
be blamed for maintaining law.

The Police have to work with-
in a parameter established by
the Law of the Land and sirict-
ly speaking the Police are to be
treated as a most important arm
of the Judicial System, the oth-
er functionaries of the system
being the Courts, Public Prose-
cutors, Prisons and the Public.
Unfortunately for every failure,
there is a tendency to blame the
Police, while the other agencies
jerk away from their responsi-
bilities. The Police are per-
forming in a society which has
undergone change, a society
that is angry, violent and not
particularly concerned about
Law and Order. We are in the
21st Century. The problems we
now face will be entirely differ-
ent and in some instances
beyond comprehension. The
information explosion, avail-
ability of firearms coupled with
rapid social changes will con-
tinue to make things difficult
for all of us. We have to be
more alert, observant and pre-
pared.

The emergence of organised
criminal gangs and their links
with international adventurism,
brightest brains in the form of
legal and financial advisers and
assisted by technology both in
the form of weapons, transport
and communication shall not be
very easy to handle.

Our Force must be provided
with similar equipment.

Adequate funds must be pro-
vided to equip the Police to
meet these challenges.

During my daily chats with
some Police Officers I have
been encouraged to continue
my requests to government to
provide the following items of
crime fighting saupinent

Parliamentarians pay

PARLIAMENTARIANS paid
their respects yesterday to the
memories of the late Harold Ran-
dolph DeGregory and Norman
Solomon, both former members
of the House of Assembly.

Mr Solomon’s body will lay in
state in the House of Assembly
on Friday, and his funeral is
expected to take place on Mon-
day.

As regards to Mr DeGregory,
preparations are still being made
as to where his funeral will be
held — either in New Providence
or Grand Bahama.

Honouring both men, Prime
Minister Hubert Ingraham paid
respects and offered condolences
on behalf of himself and the gov-
ernment.

Describing Mr Solomon as a
man with a “colourful persona”
and someone who led an “extra-
ordinarily productive life” Mr
Ingraham said that the former
parliamentarian was a person of
many gifts.

Norman Solomon

“He was articulate, he was
imaginative, he was enterprising,
he was courageous, and he was
hard-working. And he used those
gifts to the fullest in his many pur-

suits which included not only the .

achievement of his personal aims

respects to DeGregory, Solomon

and objectives but also the fulfil-
ment of the dreams he had for
his country.

“The country has lost a great
Bahamian. I know that all mem:
bers will join my colleagues and
me in expressing our deepest
sympathy to Mrs Solomon and
other members of the family and
also our gratitude for his life and
service,” he said.

Born on February 10, 1924, Mr
DeGregory was a prominent
entrepreneur in the Grand
Bahama community, founding the
Kay-Shel Stores that have
become a fixture on the island.

Mr DeGregory continued in
his public service when he ran in
1959 as an independent candidate
for the Grand Bahama and Bimi-
ni constituency. After being
declared the winner and serving
for three months in the House of
Assembly, he later lost his seat
in the election court.

Running again in 1962, Mr
DeGregory won, and served for

Owner of Red City Entertainment denies
receiving threats over Lil Wayne no-show

@ By ALEX MISSICK



RED City Entertainment owner Lisa ‘Red’ Tot-
tle has denied rumours that threats have been
made against her life by Bahamians as a result of
the no-show of rapper Lil Wayne at the Poppin
Bottles Concert on Saturday.

. According to Ms Tottle, the plans fell through
because one of the organisers of the event was
impolite to some of the sound technicians.

“That’s not a good thing in this country. You
can’t just deal with people any old way and she
was not very nice to the sound people. If I were
them I would have packed my stuff up too,” Ms
Tottle said. ;

She said the organiser “felt as though she could
come here and make people do things, but it is
not done that way. We gave him (Lil Wayne) the
extra money he wanted, we gave him everything he
needed, but (the organiser) started mouthing off
and they just said ‘forget it’. That’s really why the
sound man packed up, and at that point no one
could fix it since the sound man was fed up ...'I
couldn’t blame the man at all,” Ms Tottle said.

Ms Tottle stressed that she has many friends
here in the Bahamas and has asked them to try
and get the word out that she is not trying to take
a “duffle bag of money back to the US and leaving
everyone here clueless.”

“A lot of people have to be angry when they
don’t know what happened. I would never leave
Pencil and Empress (local entertainers) standing on
a stage like two dancing chickens if I didn’t believe
that he was coming,” she said. .

Lil Wayne did make one appearance in Nassau
over the weekend — at the Aura nightclub in
Atlantis.

Ms Tottle said she felt he showed up to Aura

fecal)

because Atlantis was able to pay him more money
than Red City.

“On Sunday I was still trying to assess what
exactly had happened. Never in a million years
did I think (Lil Wayne) would sit over there in

Aura and not come over and perform,” Ms Tottle ,

said.

As for offering refunds to the persons who paid
for the concert but were not given the chance to see
Lil Wayne, Ms Tottle said she is taking legal steps
with her lawyers, Higgs and Johnson, to try and
recover some of the money and get it back to con-
cert goers. She said the money did not end up in her
hands.

“I’m going to try to get some funds to some
refunds and if I can’t do that then I’m going to do
something free to make up for it,” she said.

As she has lived in the Bahamas before, about
eight years ago, Ms Tottle said she has a fond affec-
tion for this country and is horrified by what hap-
pened.

“I don’t think anybody will trust Red City again,
but at least I need to do something to show them
that I wasn’t out to steal people’s money,” Ms Tot-
tle said.

She explained that the event was postponed from
the original Friday date to Saturday because of
sound problems. The management for Lil Wayne
and Buju Banton were contacted and both agreed
to the change.

Red City claims that during the day on Saturday,
Lil Wayne’s management requested additional
money, on top of the original fee of $210,000, to
secure his performance.

Red City Entertainment said they agreed and
provided the funds late Saturday afternoon.

Yet the concert went as planned except without
the headliner — Lil Wayne, Red City claims.

He leaves behind his wife,

Mr Solomon served as a Mem-
ber of Parliament for 15 years,
from 1967 to 1982. As a new
opposition party began to emerge
in the 1970s, Mr Solomon partic-

UBP and the formation of the

Mr Solomon was one of the

icant contributions to the
shaping of the Bahamas consti-
tution.

Bahamian hoteliers concerned as US credit crisis bites

AMONG the many ques-

Bahamian economy is the sus-

Abaco guest house owner says business has been hit hard

14 room guest house in Sandy

year.

He said that although his

and rising fuel costs have com-
bined to hit him hard.

He said: “This has not been
one of our best years at all
because of the downturn in
the U S economy, because the
majority of my business comes
from the continental USA.”

Mr White only one of many
small hotel owners and man-
agers who are concerned
about the future.

Mr Comito added that the

Last week, members of the
public complained that the can-
non had become an eyesore
that irritated both Bahamians
and tourists.

They said all their complaints
about the problem had been
ignored.

Over time, the white wooden
casing around the centuries-old
cannon had deteriorated and
cracked open.

Mrs Greene said it was decid-
éd to place the cannon back
into the original wooden cas-
ing, instead of a more durable
cement casing, because they
wanted to keep the cannon
itself in vintage and historic
form.

during these erratic financial

Woodcock Primary School.

GRADE reading scores have
significantly improved at the
Woodcock Primary School thanks

to the reading programme initiat--

ed by former United States
Ambassador John Rood.

Located on Hospital Lane,
Woodcock Primary has the dis-
tinction of being one of the oldest
primary schools in the Bahamas
and having some of the most out-
standing Bahamians walk through
its halls.

This community school has
always stressed the importance of
education for advancement in life,
particularly for the people in the
Bain Town area where it is locat-
ed.

The school more recently has —

been heralded for its trailblazing
reading programme initiated by
former US Ambassador Rood in
2005 to help students become bet-
ter readers.

The programme started with ten
volunteers from the US Embassy
who visited the school each
Wednesday between 12.45pm and
1pm to read with the students.

Principal of Woodcock Primary
Dianne Huyler said that the read-

i ing programme has positively

impacted the school in many ways.
“The grade level reading scores
have seen a significant improve-
ment, and the students are more
interested in reading,” Ms Huyler
said.

been embraced by many of the

The students have been
exposed to many prominent per-
sons within the community who
have read to them and reinforced
the message of how important
reading is, Ms Huyler said.

The children’s appreciation of
reading, she said, increases when
they hear about its importance
from successful persons inthe
community.

Although the reading pg@@iod
takes up a part of their luncydipur,
the students do not comp the

Many of the readers ha¥ _&-

have been assigned to and request
that they remain with a class when
they move to another levei.

Since the inception-of the pro-

as entertainer Ronnie Butler;
Junkanoo icons Gus Cooper and
Percy ‘Vola’ Francis; Olympians
Debbie Ferguson-McKenzie and
Chris Brown; businessman Ger-

president of the College of the
Bahamas, Dr Rhonda Chipman-

Legendary actor Sean Connery,
famed for his James Bond 007
character, also participated in the

$60m marketing campaign for tourism

is proposed by CARICOM ministers

A $60 MILLION annual marketing campaign has been proposed by
CARICOM tourism ministers to aid the regional industry.

Agreement to forge ahead with the campaign came at a special
meeting of the CARICOM Council for Trade and Economic Devel-
opment (COTED) on tourism and transportation held in Trinidad
and Tobago.

An analysis to determine a detailed marketing plan and budget
presentation is to be completed shortly and collection of funds for the
AmB n should begin in the first quarter of 2009.

unds for the campaign are to be managed by the Caribbean
Tourism Development Corporation (CTDC) which ig jointly owned by
the Caribbean Tourism Organisation (CTO) and the Caribbean Hotel
and Tourism Association (CHTA).

Cruise lines and non-CARICOM CTO members are being asked to
contribute to the fund.

The tourism ministers’ meeting was a follow-up to the special one-
day session on tourism during the 29th Meeting of the Conference of
Heads of Government of CARICOM held in St John’s, Antigua and
Barbuda July 1-4 2008.

At that session, leaders agreed to the strategy of promoting the
region as a single destination to capitalise on emerging tourism markets.

They requested the ministers to examine the issues related to the
marketing campaign.

The decision to find a way forward for the region’s tourism industry
was taken against the background of competition from other destina-
tions, the price hike in fuel, and cutbacks by airlines servicing the
region.

The special COTED meeting also gave several mandates to the
CARICOM Secretariat which included following-up with the CTO and
the CHTA towards completion of the marketing plan analysis.

That plan is to be considered at a special meeting of the COTED on

LIS students achieve ‘above average’

results in their international exams

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

FREEPORT — Lucaya Inter-
national School students continue
to excel in international exami-
nations, achieving’ “above aver-
age” results in the International
Baccalaureate Programme and
the International General Cer-
tificate of Secondary Education
IGCSE examinations of London.

According to the school, results
of the IB Diploma Programme
examination surpassed the inter-
national average pass rate of 78
per cent. Of the 16 LIS gradu-
ates, 10 sat the IB examinations.

In late July, results published
showed that 90 per cent of the
graduates of the 2008 IB class
were awarded the prestigious IB
Diploma.

Headmaster Mark Gifford said
the results are an exceptional

achievement for a small school
such as LIS.

“These LIS students now hold
their own among the 30,000 stu-
dents worldwide who were
awarded their diplomas in the
May examinations.

“The LIS IB students and their
fellow graduates have all now
gone on to attend various inter-
national universities and colleges
of their choice, including the Uni-
versity of Manchester, Edinburgh,
Heriot-Watt and Kingston upon
Thames in the United Kingdom,
McGill University in Canada,
Linden University in Missouri
and University of Tilburg in The
Netherlands,” said Mr Gifford.

The former LIS students are

-now enrolled in majors that

include French, drama and pre-
med (second year entry). One is
pursuing a masters degree in engi-
neering.

Results in the IGCSE exami-

nations, which are set by the Uni-
versity of London, are also above
average. The nine students
entered by the school attained
above the national average with
- five A*s, six As, 13 Bs and 14 Cs.
“The school is also very
pleased with the results from the
Year 11 students who took the
International General Certificate
of Secondary Education (IGCSE)
examinations in May. They all
performed beyond our expecta-
tions and produced some very
encouraging results,” Mr Gifford
said. Student Conner Goodrum
received outstanding results with
five A*s and two As. Natalia
Gonzalez earned three As and
three Bs, while Revanno Smith
earned one A, four Bs and one C.
The IGCSE examinations are
taken in more than 100 countries
worldwide. IGCSE courses are
renowned for developing vital
educational skills, including recall

of knowledge, oral skills, prob-
lem solving, initiative, team work
and investigative skills.

Mr Gifford said that IGCSE
examination was introduced for
the first time this year. He said
the students did very well consid-
ering that they had less than a
year to prepare, instead of the
normal two years.

Nigel Kirkby, LIS high school
co-ordinator, noted that the
exams are around the same level
as the BGCSEs that are taken by
many Bahamian students, but the
IGCSE “is one of the most recog-
nised qualifications in the world.”

According to the school, the
IB programme opens the doors
to some of the finest universities.
The IB Diploma enables students

to gain university credits that

could allow them to cither enter
directly into the second year of a
degree or even a masters pro-
gramme.

Sunbound Bahamas would like for the following persons to
contact their main office as soon as possible.
We appreciate the public’s assistance in this matter.

Ross University announces GB housing registry

HUNDREDS of landlords and property
owners turned out to a town meeting on Sep-
tember 29 to pre-register and hear how they
could become eligible to provide housing for
the Ross medical school students who will
begin school in January 2009 at the Seahorse
Plaza interim campus in Freeport.

Sandi Cutler, Ross vice-president for plan-
ning and business development, gave a brief
history on Ross University, and explained the
steps necessary for landlords to become listed
with the Ross University rental registry, which
will be available to all Ross students by Octo-
ber 20 through their housing web site.

As most Ross students cannot take time
off from their studies to travel to a new place
and search for housing, the university's hous-
ing referral service will provide them with
trustworthy information and arrange their
housing conveniently, Ross said in a state-
ment.

This service is voluntary for students, fac-
ulty, staff and landlords, however, 90 per cent
of Ross students use it.

The university will also operate a housing
office that will assist landlords in locating ten-
ants.

This is a service that Ross currently pro-
vides at their Dominica, St Kitts, and Miami
campuses, and one that has been very effective
for both landlords and tenants, the university
said.

“The university takes care to inspect each
rental unit, and provides students with accu-
rate and convenient information.

Ross University operates a small amount of
housing at each of its campuses, but does not

rent units from local landlords on behalf of its
students. “The university does not want to
become a large landlord,” Ross said.

An initial 250 students will be living in
Grand Bahama and those numbers will steadi-
ly increase to approximately 500 in 12 to 18
months time.

Most Ross students will stay in Grand
Bahama for two semesters, which is approxi-
mately eight months. Every four semesters
some will leave as others will arrive.

“Landlords that provide quality affordable
housing are generally able to sustain continu-
ous occupancy because of the steady influx
of new students.

“Ross students are mature students who
have completed four years of undergraduate
study and two semesters of medical school

Leslie Musgrove, Ross University off-site

lords inquired about offering housing prior
to the meeting.

She stressed the need for accommodations
to include linens, bedding, appliances, pots
and pans. Internet access is a must for all
rentals, as the students study at all hours, she
said.

Joy Adrien, events and customer service
manager, visiting from the Ross Dominica

an employee of BIS, came to
be sent to’the media. y

A more senior-ranking
BIS staff member told The
Tribune on Tuesday that it
was not an official statement
from that organisation, but
did not refute its content at
that time.

Mr Vanderpool-Wallace
said: “We’re not changing
any of the plan because we
already have a plan that is
put together, believe it or.
not, for even the most diré
circumstances. There are
some things we would rec-
ommend that if the world
goes to hell in a handbasket,
we have a recommendation
for that also but we obvious-
ly don’t want to trigger any
such recommendation until
we recognise that there is a
need for it.

“And so there is no desire
to do anything except have
an Opportunity to lay it all
out instead of having it come
out in pockets,” he said.

Asked to respond to the
suggestion that now might be
an appropriate time for the
Ministry to offer some reasi
surance about what is being
done to shore up the sector,
rather than postpone any
statements, Mr Vanderpool-
Wallace said: “We happen to
disagree with that.” iB

He likened talking abou
the Ministry’s strategy at this

time to trying to have a cont

versation with someone
about something unrelated
when a relative of theirs ha
“just died.” rd

“If people are not in the
capacity to receive the mest
sage you are telling them, to
go out there and talk aboutiit
is going to fall on deaf ears.
They are distracted, they are

Anger after vehicles
are towed from
Dowdeswell Street

FROM page one

Police station, which witnesses
to the towing exercise claimed
was the man who gave the order
to tow, said he did no such
thing. Then, officers at the
Tourism Police station slammed
the door in the Tribune
reporter’s face.

The vehicle is registered in
Mr Collie’s name, but was yes-
terday being driven by his wife,
Mrs Mavis Johnson-Collie.

One witness said: “The offi-
cer said blatantly to us that he
could not tow Sidney Collie’s
car. Now justice is supposed to
be equal. That is not a govern-
ment car. That is a personal car
with an MP plate. They towed
the cars in front of it, around it
behind it and across from it and
that car is parked on a corner.”

Car owners said they were
not aware that the Dowdeswell
Street area was a no parking
zone, nor was there any warn-
ing or indication. that their cars
would be removed for parking.
However, Mrs Collie said she
had received a notice from the
officers.

“They came and said there
was no parking on Dowdeswell
Street. There are no markings
where they removed vehicles.
I just think it would have been
common courtesy of them to
say effective X-Y-Z, no cars
would be permitted to park on
Dowdeswell Street,” Mrs Collie
said. _

Mrs Collie said there were

only two wreckers towing cars.:

She believes this may have
been the reason that her vehicle
was not removed as quickly as
the others.

“They moved two cars at a
time and they may be coming
back for mine. It has nothing
to do with the vehicle plate,”
Mrs Collie said. However, car
owners said they were told by
the officers that they could not

remove her car, specifically
because of the plates.

Real estate administrator,
Heather Joy Albury, said she
just happened to look out of
her office window and noticed a
tow truck carrying a car away.

Ms Albury said neither her
office nor the neighbouring
offices along the street knew
what was taking place.

“If proper protocol was to be
followed, today all vehicles
should have received a warn-
ing on their windshield alert-
ing us that Dowdeswell Street is
no longer public parking. It just
seems strange that after a year
of being able to park on the

road with no problems, just’

today the rule was enforced,
without any further explana-
tion,” Ms Albury said.

“There are no yellow lines
and no additional signs stating
‘no parking’. They wouldn’t
give me information about the
towing companies. They were
all rude to us. They need to
know that we are citizens and
they are civil servants and that
they work for us. They do not
have a right over us. They are
supposed to be working with
us and for us,” Ms Albury said.

Corporal Bell, Officer in
charge at the Tourism Police
Station, said no parking signs
may not be visible, but
Dowdeswell Street is a no park-
ing zone.

“What had happen was the
signs were marked in the road,
however the roads were
repaved and the signage was
covered and never put back by
Ministry of Works,” Mr Bell
explained.

After this statement, The Tri-
bune could not find any rules
or regulations from either Min-
istry of Works or Road Traffic
to prove the entire Dowdeswell
Street area is a no parking

zone.
Chief Officer Deleveaux-at’
the Tourism Station, said to his

knowledge, those persons who
were towed were causing an
obstruction on Dowdeswell
Street.

“From my understanding the
officers indicated the vehicles
caused, or were likely to cause,
obstruction as they were
parked. They made several
attempts to find owners of the
vehicles who caused the
obstructions. The officers used
their discretion to remove vehi-
cles.

“The law is clear that officers
in uniform can remove vehicles
that are an obstruction. It real-
ly doesn’t matter’ where the car
is or who it belong’ to as long
as.it’s causing an obstruction,”
Mr Deleveaux said.

Apparently, this is not the
first time that towing. without
notice has taken place and
police have been careful as to
whose car is towed.

A downtown merchant told
The Tribune yesterday that on
Frederick Street, Charlotte
Street and Bay Street, officers
from the Tourism Station “tow
who they feel like towing and
do not tow anyone else who
may be causing an obstruction.”

He said he has personally
witnessed officers start to tow a
car that was illegally parked,
until they learned that it
belonged to an off duty senior
police officer, after which, they
released the vehicle.

Ms Albury said she feels that
the.citizen’s rights in that area
were blatantly disregarded and
anyone whose car has been
towed, Century Towing and

‘ Jason Horton Towing can assist

them in getting their vehicles
back.

“It’s getting harder and hard-
er to make ends meet and now
the police officers are messing
with our livelihood,” she said.
“All we are asking is why did.
this happen now all ofa sud-
~ den and why were we not given
notice.” es

Success at H G Christie’s first
Annual Agents Conference

Over 30 agents from around
the islands of Bahamas attend

first annual agents conference
with resounding success.

Over 30 agents from H G
Christie’s offices throughout
the islands of the Bahamas
were brought together under
the theme “Realising Success
through Education; Motiva-
tion and Innovation.”

On Friday, September 19,
agents met for the first day
oi the-conference in the ‘Ado-
nis room at the newly opened
Atlantis Convention Centre.
The day focused on educa-
tional sessions designed. to
senhance individual knowl-

gédge and company cohesive-
ness.

John Christie, vice- »-presi-
dent of H G Christie Ltd,
emphasised that the purpose
of the conference was to
“broaden knowledge,” and,

’ “to ensure that we are work-
;,ing under a solid framework
with a true team approach.”

1: HG Christie hosted guest

‘speaker Rodney Dillard, of

Illustrated Properties Real

Estate, Palm Beach, Florida.
* Mr Dillard was also repre-
senting Christie’s Great
Estates of which H G Christie
is the-exclusive affiliate in the
Bahamas.

Mr Dillard spoke of his
relationship with the late Sir
Harold G Christie and pro-
vided insight into his charac-
ter, motivation, and passion
for the development of the

* Bahamas.
He also addressed the
. importance and prestige of
an affiliation with Christie’s

“The combination of H G

Christie and the exclusive
“ representation of. Christie’s

; affiliation you could have,”
. he said. “It emanates success

ing was a special presentation

dinner at Graycliff’s Brazil-
ian-style steakhouse, The
Humidor Churrascaria, where
awards were presented to the
agents while they all were
pampered by Graycliff staff
and dined in style.

‘tightening belts’
after 02 loss

* Company says $500,000
cardboard recycling facility
should be ‘up and running’
in six weeks

@ By NEIL HARTNELL
Tribune Business Editor

BAHAMAS Waste yester-
day said its $500,000 cardboard
recycling facility “should be up
and running in a month and a
half’s time”, as its managing
director pledged to “tighten our
belts and hold the line on every-
thing after incurring a minor
$38,586 loss in the 2008 second
quarter.

Francisco de Cardenas told
Tribune Business that the waste
collection services provider was
‘determined to “ride out” the
current economic downturn,
which had resulted in Bahamas
Waste’s margins being squeezed
by falling revenues and rising
costs.

The company’s 2008 half-year
net income was less than a third
of the previous year’s $600,372,
standing at $189,883, and Mr de
Cardenas said that while
Bahamas Waste had increased
prices for its small commercial
packer bin services by 10 per
cent, intense market competi-

. tion made further across-the-
board rises virtually impossible.

will “proba-

bly” only

take a

definitive
decision on the future of its
hurricane-ravaged Inagua
operations, and whether it will
commit the millions of dollars
in capital investment needed
to rebuild them, in the 2009
first quarter, a spokesman for
its parent company said yes-
terday.

George Bochanski, of
Rohm & Haas, told Tribune
Business: “It might be some
time in the early part of 2009
before a decision is made”

definitively on Morton Salt’s
Inagua future. He later added
that “my guess is that it will
probably be in the first quar-
ter [2009]” before anything
definitive happened.

Mr Bochanski said Morton
Salt and Rohm & Haas rep-
resentatives were “in the
process of trying to piece
together what restoration will
entail and cost us” after Hur-

_ ricane Ike caused. millions of

dollars worth of damage to
the company’s Inagua opera-
tions. .

“I don’t think we’ll have
anything definitive for a
while,” Mr Bochanski said,
adding that Morton Salt was
focused on three separate
issues surrounding the Inagua

plant - the clean-up, assess-
ment of the damages and
what it would take to restore
the operation to its pre-Ike
state, and then start the Bud-
geting process to include any
capital investment costs in
Rohm & Haas/Morton Salt’s
financial plans for next year. ¢

The Rohm & Haas
spokesman added that good
progress was being made on
the damages assessment and
rebuilding evaluation, and
told Tribune Business: “What
we're trying to concentrate on
now is getting things back to
some semblance of.normali-
ty.

“The real challenge is to do
an evaluation of what it will
take to bring things back to

what they were pre-hurricane
- to try and close the gap on
what we need to do and work
that into the company’s Bud-
get process.”

Mr Bochanski explained

. that Morton Salt and Rohm

& Haas were in the initial
stages of the Budget process,
which would assess what kind
of capital investment they
were prepared to make in
rebuilding the Inagua opera-
tions.

“This will require signifi-
cant re-investment in the site
that will move us into the cap-
ital investment planning
process,” Mr Bochanski said.

‘Critical’ to get small resorts sector right

Vital to raise niche Bahamian hotels to ‘a level where they can
compete globally’, and give Bahamians ownership participation



Bahamas-based hotels to “a level where
they can compete globally”, a senior
Bahamas Hotel Association (BHA) exec-
utive told Tribune Business yesterday, as
the sector represented “the future of
Family Island tourism” and provided
Bahamians with ownership possibilities.

Speaking as a BHA and Inter-Ameri-
can Development Bank (IDB) financed
project was holding a one-day seminar
for small resort properties, Frank Comi-
to, the former’s executive vice-president,
said the Internet’s development had giv-
en Bahamian properties an opportunity
to compete on a more level footing with
their larger counterparts when it came

water’ on labour case law

@ By NEIL HARTNELL
Tribune Business Editor

BAHAMIAN employers
must take into account prece-
dent-setting court judgments as
well as statute law when dealing
with latLour issues to avoid
falling ito “hot water due to
legal transgressions”, the
Bahamas Employers Confeder-

ation’s (BECon) president aa,

yesterday.
Brian Nutt explained that

both common law and statute .

law, the latter being legislation
passed by Parliament, together
comprised this nation’s labour
laws, and issues such as wrong-
ful dismissal and public holiday
pay - while not included in the
Employment Act - had been
deal with by legal case prece-
dent.



The BECon president also
pointed out that some labour
law areas were now covered by
common law, rather than
statute, because they had been
omitted from the Employment
Act when it was passed in 2001
to repeal the Fair Labour Stan-
dards Act.

For example, Mr Nutt said
that while the Fair Labour Stan-
dards Act placed in statute the
need for employers to pay
salaried workers for public hol-
idays when they did not work,
the Employment Act that
replaced it was “now silent on
that issue” made no mention of
it, As a result, it is now covered
by common law and case prece-

dent.

“That is one of the prime
areas there to be aware of,” Mr
Nutt told Tribune Business.
“We have 10 public holidays a
year, so it’s going to affect a
salaried employee 10 times a
year. You have to pay them 10
times a year for days when they
do not work.

“If they work on those public
holidays, you have to pay them
double time for hours worked.”

Ditto the issue of wrongful
dismissal. The Employment Act

only provides for unfair dis-

missal, but Mr Nutt said
Bahamian employers had to be
aware that wrongful dismissal.
was covered by common law
and,case precedent, and there-
fore provided another avenue
through which a former
employee could bring a lawsuit
against the company.

“There have been a few cases
of wrongful dismissal that have
attracted media attention since

the time the Employment Act

to marketing.

However, the huge jump in operating
costs was not discriminating between
small and large Bahamas-based resorts,
with small hotel operators spending more
than 10 per cent of their operating
expenses covering utilities costs.

When asked about how crucial the
small hotel sector was to the Bahamian
tourism product and overall economy,
Mr Comito replied: “The importance,
particularly in terms of Bahamian par-
ticipation at the ownership level in the
hotel sector, is absolutely critical. It’s crit-
ical we get this right.”

The ultimate goal of the BHA and

“The future of tourism is, in the Fam-

De Eee eer a
Company directors must keep the faith

AS fiduciaries, directors have
a legal duty to act in good faith.
They must not make a profit
from their fiduciary position, or
place themselves in positions
where their duties a8 directors
conflict with their own interests.
They cannot act for their own
benefit or the benefit of others
without clear, unequivocal con-
sent from the principals of the
company. Instead, they must act
in accordance with the compa-
ny’s Memorandum and Articles
of Association, plus deal with
and treat fairly, the different
classes of shareholders.

The main underpinning of the






















fiduciary relationship that a
director OWes to a company 1s
one of trust, loyalty and integri-

ty, in acting in the company’s

best interests.

Duty to Act in Good Faith

As espoused by Lord Greene
MR, in the case of Re Smith and
Fawcett Ltd, directors must act
in the best interests of the com-
pany, and cannot use their pow-
ers to benefit themselves or third
parties.

The legal test of whether a
director has acted in good faith,
is one in which a director acts
in good faith in what “he

believes to be in the best inter-
ests of the company”, notwith-
standing the fact that his deci-
sion may, in fact, also promote
his own interests. However,

powers for the purpose for
which those powers were given.
It is not enough that they simply

believe to be the best interests of
the company.

Directors, as fiduciaries, must
exercise their powers prudently
and properly, and act in good
faith - not just in the best inter-
ests of the company, but also in
the exercise of their powers, be
they corporate, discretionary,
administrative and otherwise.

Directors have a duty to exer-
cise their powers for a proper
purpose, as courts fairly and
objectivelyassess the propriety
of the decisions and actions of
company directors. This is par-
ticularly important given that
the notion of what is actually “in

the best interests of the compa-
ny” is more a subjective test and,
arguably, more suitably deter-
mined by the judgment of direc-
tors who operate and manage
their companies.

Directors must exercise their
discretionary powers indepen-
dently and fairly in all matters,
particularly those involving their
shareholders and in contractual
relationships with external and
internal parties.

Conflict of Interest

While the case of Movitex Ltd
vs Bullfield established that
directors do not have a duty not
to place themselves in a position
of conflict, in and of itself, they
should not place themselves in a
position where their personal
interests, or duties to third par-
ties, conflict with their duties to
the company without the clear,
unequivocal consent of the com-
pany.

Directors may be given such
consent in the provisions of the
company’s Articles of Associa-
tion, or by an ordinary resolu-
tion of the company.

As a corollary to the princi-
ple under which the conflict of
interest notion operates, direc-
tors are also prohibited from
profiting or obtaining some ben-
efit by using proprietary infor-
mation, trade secrets or oppor-
tunities that may belong to or
derive from the company for
which they act as directors.

Duty to manage the

company

Section 84 of the Companies
Act 1992 and Section 40 of the
International Business Compa-
nies Act 2000 detail the duty of
directors to manage the business
and affairs of the company, sub-
ject to any limitations or restric-
tions within the Memorandum
and Articles of Association. In
certain instances, and specifical-
ly for Companies Act compa-
nies, this can be laid ouf in an
unanimous shareholders agree-
ment.

Duty to treat different
classes of shareholders fairly
One of the primary fiduciary

duties of directors is to treat dif-
ferent classes of shareholders
fairly, particularly in cases where
it would be in the best interests
of the company.

As established in the case of
Mutual Life Insurance vs Rank
Organisation, it is imperative
that the shareholders of the com-
pany, as one of the primary
stakeholders within the corpo-

“rate governance regime, be

treated fairly in the distribution
of dividends and, where applic-
able, the allotment of shares;
access to company information;
and in corporate decisions made
in accordance with the compa-
ny’s Memorandum and Articles
of Association.

The challenges of good cor-
porate governance, increasing
shareholder rights, improper
actions by directors and the per-
vasive legal liabilities of risk
exposure for the performance
and propriety of companies,
make it more challenging for
directors to clearly define their
roles in the ever-changing envi-
ronment of modern-day com-
merce.

As recent case law has reflect-
ed, the ambit of directors’ fidu-
ciary duties extends to share-
holders, creditors and employ-
ees of companies, making the
expectations, responsibilities and
accountability of directors that
much greater and more demand-
ing.

Money sent home hy Mexicans
in US drops 12 per cent

@ By TRACI CARL
Associated Press Writer _

MEXICO CITY (AP) —
Mexicans living in the US sent
home 12 per cent less money in
August, the largest drop on
record since the Bank of Mexico
began tracking remittances 12
years ago, the central bank
reported yesterday.

After years of record gains,
remittances have dropped across
Latin America. In Brazil, immi-
gration to the US dropped dra-
matically after the real rose in
value against the dollar.

In Mexico, Mexicans began
sending less money home this
year, economically stranding
many small towns and neigh-
bourhoods that live off the
stipends. The Bank of Mexico
said remittances will likely con-
tinue to fall in the coming
months because of the “difficult
problems the US economy
faces.”

The bank said remittances in
August dropped 12 per cent to
US$1.9 billion. That compares
to US$2.2 billion in August 2007.

Migrants living in the US have
sent home US$15.5 billion in the
first eight months of this year,
four per cent less than the same
period the year before.

A slowing US economy and
stepped up immigration enforce-
ment by the US government,
including record deportations
and increased border security,
are behind the drop.

Remittances are Mexico's sec-
ond-largest source of foreign
income, next to oil exports.

Nearly all of it comes from the
United States, home to 98 per
cent of Mexicans living abroad.
At least 11 million Mexicans live

in the United States.

_Mexico’s economy has largely
weathered the global economic
crisis, buoyed by a national hous-
ing boom and government-fund-
ed infrastructure programmes.

But Treasury Secretary -
Agustin Carstens said this week .
that Mexico will still be hit by
the global crisis, as tourism drops
and continued volatility deflates
oil and other commodity prices.
He has lowered his annual
growth forecast for Mexico to
2.5 per cent.

Mexico’s IPC stock index
rebounded Tuesday, then
slipped 1.5 per cent on Wednes-
day, evidence that the US crisis
is still rattling markets here.

President Felipe Calderon has
boasted that Mexico is no longer
economically dependent on its
powerful northern neighbor,
arguing against the old adage:
“If the US economy catches a
cold, Mexico gets pneumonia.”

But George Grayson, a Mex-
ico expert at the College of
William & Mary in Virginia, said
there is no way Mexico can
escape being hit hard by the US
crisis, which comes as the coun-
try struggles with rising drug and
street violence and falling oil
production. “I think Calderon is
sort.of like a deer caught in the
headlights of four onrushing
tractor trailers,” he said.

While illegal immigration to
the US has fallen off recently,
he predicted that many Mexi-
cans would again turn to the US
as the Mexican economy weak-
ens. “It’s going to mean an out-
pouring of illegal immigrants to
the US,” he said.

Utility bills eat 25% of hotel costs

@ By CARA BRENNEN-
BETHEL ;
Tribune Business

Reporter

UTILITY bills ‘are on aver-
age eating up 25 per cent of
small Bahamian hotels’ operat-
ing expenses, an industry con-
sultant said yesterday, with solar
water heating holding perhaps
the greatest untapped potential
to reduce this cost.

William Meade, president of
PA Consultants, whose compa-
ny has been instrumental in
positioning the Caribbean as an
environmentally-conscious des-
tination, said that using solar
panels would have a tremen-
dous impact when it came to
reducing resort expenses, par-
ticularly as the region relies so
heavily on fossil fuels.

As a result, external factors
will always be driving the hotel
industry’s costs.

Mr Meade, who was address- °

ing Bahamian small hotel oper-
ators at a seminar yesterday,
said that despite the initial
investment cost, solar energy

had tremendous benefits and
would likely repay those costs
itself within five years.

He explained that even a
small amount of usage - such as
relying on it to heat laundry
cycles - would reduce costs sub-
stantially.

A representative from the
Island School at Cape
Eleuthera told delegates that
when they installed solar panels,

it reduced their utility bills by 25.

per cent, and they saw a return
on their investment within two
years.

Mr Meade said that. when
environmental measures are
taken, it is important that the
true impact is measured - for
the hotel as a whole, and the
savings per individual room, for
example.

“It can be as simple as asking
employees to switch off lights,

. putting water on a timer, or

installing panels, but you need
to measure the impact,” Mr
Meade said.

He pointed out that hoteliers
needed to understand their base
low cost, which is the amount

of energy needed to operate at
the lowest level with just one
guest or no guests, as well as
what is needed when the hotel
is at full occupancy.

Mr Meade added that it was
the job of the hotel to ensure
that the message of what they
were doing was passed on to
employees and guests.

He said, for example, that at
one property he worked with,
guests were asked to hang their
towels for reuse as part of the
hotel’s conservation programe,
but the staff had not been fully
informed.of the policy, so
housekeepers would still
remove them. Mr Meade said
this led to the guests feeling
their conservation efforts were

~ in vain.

On the other side, Mr Meade
said guests from major cities
often had a hard time under-
standing water shortages or
why they should conserve on

‘smaller islands.

“It is up to you to get the
message across and make them
understand and feel a part of
the efforts,” Mr Meade said.

Bahamas requires development plan

@ By CARA BRENNEN-
BETHEL
Tribune Business

Reporter

THE Bahamas is in desperate
need of a National Economic
Development Plan to facilitate
its future growth.

Owen Bethel, chief executive
of the Montaque Group, told
persons attending the Abaco
Business Outlogk conference
that every aspect of the coun-
try’s development needs to stem
from such a plan so that devei-
opment is not haphazard.

He added that it was time to
change the mindset Bahamians
_ have, where they wish to have
the money derived from foreign
investors but do not wish to
have the investors remain or
have ties in the country.

Mr Bethel said the Bahamas
has sometimes suffered from
the political tendency to “throw
the baby oui with the bath
water every five years, simply
becanse the baby was born ina

previous administration”.

- However, if there was a:

National Economic

Plan,
regardless of the political party
in power, there would be a clear
and pre-determined path for
where the country should be
and needs to go.

As the economy improves,
Mr Bethe! said, it may also
reduce the level of brain drain

they covered more space.
Yesterday’s conference saw
the STEMM project present
small hoteliers with the results
of research done on the sector
earlier this year, with the semi-
nar designed to discuss the
information presented and how
properties could maximise rev-
enues and be operated more
efficiently. oe
The research was carried out
on more than 100 small hotels

they will remain.

The company was said to
have been angered by the latest
bout of industrial unrest at its
Inagua plant, especially given
the labour productivity and high
operating cost issues it is faced
with in the Bahamas. In addi-
tion, Rohm & Haas is being
acquired by Dow Chemical,
which is unlikely to have been
endeared to Inagua by the
union action and does not have
the same emotional attachment
to the island.

Morton Salt’s closure would -
be disastrous for Inagua and
leave it without an economy, as
60 per cent of the island’s work-
force is employed by the com-
pany and all other economic
activity a spin-off from that. The
island would likely see depopu-
lation if that scenario came to
pass.

Abolish existing LPG price contro

FROM page 1B

know why they put themselves
through this agony,” Mr
D’Aguilar told Tribune Busi-
ness. “Every time the propane
price goes up [on the world
market], the propane retailers
and wholesalers have to go back
tothe Government.

“It’s not good politically for
the Government to give price
increases, so the propane com-
panies end up making a loss and
subsidising the price paid by
consumers.”

Then, when the price increas-
es proved too great a burden
for the Bahamian LPG industry
to bear, the Government was
forced to “give dramatic” 30-40
per cent price increases. It has
just done this, with the price of
a‘100-pound LPG cylinder sold
on New Providence increasing

from $75 to $100, a 33 per cent
or one-third rise. On the Fami-
ly Island, the same cylinder now
costs $110. ,

To solve the problem, Mr
D’ Aguilar recommended that
if the Government wanted to
price control LPG, it should
switch from the existing system
that imposed a flat maximum
price to one that was based on
LPG’s landed price, with a fixed
mark-up agreed to that retailers
and wholesalers would have a
big enough margin to make
profits.

This was the same model
applied to the Bahamian gaso-
line industry, which allowed
prices to account for global oil
prices. The Government’s taxes
were based upon the landed
cost of fuel, upon which it
imposed $1.16 per gallon and a
7 per cent Stamp Duty. Retail
and wholesale margins were
fixed at $0.44 and $0.33 per gal-

lon respectively.

Suggesting that this should be
the model employed for the
LPG industry, Mr D’Aguilar
explained: “There’s enormous
volatility inthe market, and it’s
extremely unfair to expect
propane companies to accept a

fixed maximum price given that:

volatility. The Government
should do exactly what they do
for gasoline. They should abol-
ish that system and go to the
system on gasoline.”

Mr D’ Aguilar said his busi-
ness, the Superwash laundro-
mat chain, which is the second
largest consumer of LPG in
New Providence behind Kerzn-
er International, would not be
affected by the latest price
increase.

This was because he had
agreed a deal where the price of

Bahamas Waste

‘tightening belts’
after Q2 loss

FROM page 1B

Indicating that further price
increases could make Bahamas
Waste uncompetitive against its
rivals and cost it clients and
market share, Mr de Cardenas
confirmed: “We had a small
price increase on the packer
side, and on the commercial
roll-off side, because there’s so
much competition out there, it’s
a one-on-one negotiation.

“] just can’t increase across-
the-board because I would
shoot myself in the foot.” Mr
de Cardenas added that the $7-
$8 increase on the company’s
small commercial side would
still “not even cover fuel
increases”.

Bahamas Waste’s business -

model has been heavily impact-
ed by the soaring cost of diesel
gasoline, which powers its vehi-
cle fleet, and steel and tyre price
increases. That came through
in the 11.8 per cent increase in

the company’s cost of sales and

- direct expenses, which rose

from $2.445 million in 2007 to
$2.733 million for the 2008 first
half.

Sales, by contrast, dipped
every so Slightly, falling 3 per
cent to $3.879 million from
$3.996 million in 2007. With the
two-way squeeze on Bahamas
Waste’s profit margins, it was
little surprise that gross profits
fell from $1.55 million in the
2007 first half to $1.146 million
this year.

“We just need to try and hold
our own and ride this out,” Mr
de Cardenas told Tribune Busi-
ness. “I have very little control
over what’s going on.

“We’re tightening our belts,
and trying to hold the line on

everything, trying to reduce

costs every way we can, reduc-
ing the internal pilferage that is
so prevalent in our society, and
reminding our employees - all
of them - that it’s tough out
there.”

PROCLAMATION

Bahamas Waste experienced
an 11.5 per cent increase in its
accounts receivables to $1.545
million in the 2008 first half,
compared to $1.386 million last
year, an indication that more of
its customers are having trou-
ble in making timely vill pay-
ments.

Mr de Cardenas described
Bahamas Waste’s accounts
receivables as “a huge prob-
lem”, adding: “It’s always been
a problem, and now you can
imagine.”

He said: “I don’t have the
luxury of being a monopoly. We
feel we have some good, loyal
customers, and will work with
them through these hard times.
We will stay vigilant on our
receivables, knowing what
everyone is going through.”

Meanwhile, Bahamas Waste
continues to make progress on
its biodiesel and cardboard
waste recycling expansion pro-
jects, acquiring four acres of
land adjacent to its existing
Gladstone Road base to house
these facilities.

The company paid $100,000
of the $500,000 purchase price
from its own resources, with the
balance coming from a $400,000
Royal Bank of Canada loan
that is for five years »t 7 per
cent interest.

While Bahamas Waste still
has to hear from the Govern-
ment as to whether its biodiesel
joint venture has been
approved, Mr de Cardenas said
the cardboard recycling facility
should be completed and oper-
ational in six weeks’ time.

“By the time we finish the
building, the land and the
equipment, it’s a pretty sub-
stantial investment; I would say
a good half-a-million dollars
with all the land included,” Mr
de Cardenas said of the card-
board recycling project. .

The facility will aim to recycle
500 tons of cardboard per
month in its initial stages, with
the Far East the likeliest target
export market for this product.

Employment Act itself had

“A person who reads the

The Nassau Airport Development Company (NAD) is about to embark ona transformation of the
Lynden Pindling International Airport in Nassau, The Bahamas. :

The design will evoke the spectacular beauty of The Bahamas and the mission of NAD is to operate
the airport to be safe, friendly, clean, efficient and profitable with a local sense of place.

NAD invites interested Contractors and Suppliers to attend a Contractors Briefing to review
impending expansion plans. The airport will be expanded in 3 stages over the next 5 years and





acquire land and property;
demolish or rehabilitate aban-
doned properties; and to offer
downpayment and closing cost
assistance to low- and moder-
ate-income homebuyers.
Grantees also can create
“land banks,” assembling, man-
aging and ultimately disposing
of vacant land to stimulate rede-
velopment of urban property.
“To those areas trying. to
recover from the effects of fore-
closure and declining property
values, help is on the way,”
HUD Secretary Steve Preston
said in a news release. “Clearly,

the intent is to put this money

to work in communities with
the highest need.”

Grant amounts were deter-
mined by factoring each
region’s rates of foreclosures,
subprime mortgages and mort-
gage defaults. Officials also
weighed local abandonment
risk. :

HUD said the states receiving
the most money were Florida,
California, Michigan and Ohio.

The state of Georgia will
receive funds totaling more
than $77 million; nine other
cities and counties will receive
the remainder, roughly $76 m:i-
lion.

DeKalb County, labeled at
“high” local abandonment risk
amid a 6.4 per cent foreclosure
rate, will receive the largest
grant at $18.5 million.

That money could bolster the
area’s fledgling affordable hous-
ing programme, designed to
locate more economical homes

around the region’s business .

hubs, according,to Burrell Ellis,
county CEO elect. More afford-
able housing also could enable
more police officers, teachers
and others in vital — but some-
times underpaid — positions, to
live in the communities where
they work, he said.

“It would give a wonderful
jump-start to our affordable
housing programme,” said Ellis,
who acknowledged even he
can’t afford to live near his job
in the suburban Atlanta county.

Atlanta will receive $12.3 mil-
lion; Fulton and Gwinnett coun-
ties each will gain more than
$10 million. Clayton County will
receive more than $9 million;
Augusta, Columbus-Muscogee
and Savannah, as well as Cobb
County, also will receive mon-
ey.
The statewide foreclosure
rate is estimated at 5.2 per cent,
high, according to HUD, which
estimates the national foreclo-
sure rate at 4.8 per cent.

Georgia was among the Top
10 in the nation for foreclosures
through August, according to
RealityTrac, a California-based
online marketplace for home
foreclosures.

Throughout the Atlanta
region, the sting of the housing
market crunch is apparent both
in abandoned homes and
homes remaining on the mar-
ket longer than usual.

“I’m seeing very much of a
slowdown in my resale inven-
tory and my foreclosure inven-
tory,” said Lin Sadler-Perry, a
Gwinnett County real estate
agent affiliated with Century
21. “Our showing numbers in
the past three weeks are down
at least 50 per cent compared to
what they were, say, six months

“ago.”

HUD estimates Gwinnett
County’s local foreclosure rate
at 4.6 per cent.

Regional leaders have until
December 1 to present spend-
ing plans to HUD. Grant funds
must be used within 18 months.

RealityTrac estimated one in
every 416 American households
received a foreclosure filing in
August.

clients’ tax details

m@ By LYNNLEY BROWNING
c.2008 New York Times
News Service

THE veil of Swiss banking
secrecy is quietly being lifted —
by Switzerland.

Switzerland’s tax authorities,
under pressure from a growing
US investigation into the Swiss
bank giant UBS, are expected
to hand over confidential data
on wealthy American clients of
UBS to the Justice Department,
two people briefed on the mat-
ter said Tuesday.

The move would represent a
significant shift in Switzerland’s
banking secrecy laws, whose
tradition dates to the Middle
Ages.

UBS began handing over
data on hundreds of American
clients with offshore private
banking accounts to the Swiss
taxing authority starting in
August, these people said.

The delivery to the Justice
Department, expected to take
place within several months,
would place American client
names in the hands of federal
prosecutors seeking to build
criminal cases against wealthy
Americans they suspect of tax
evasion.

UBS is under a widening fed-
eral investigation into whether it

helped up to 20,000 wealthy —

American clients illegally evade
taxes by stashing $20 billion in
overseas accounts that were not
declared to the Internal Rev-
enue Service.

UBS declined to comment,
saying only that it is cooperating
with the investigation.

In July, a federal judge in
Miami approved a Justice
Department request seeking to
force UBS to turn over certain
client names. The summons is
thought to be the first issued to
a foreign bank.

Swiss law makes disclosure
of client data or names a crime
unless the Swiss authorities
think that the client has com-
mitted a serious crime, like
money laundering or tax fraud.
Unlike in the United States,
Switzerland does not consider
tax evasion to be a crime,



SHEET SETS

~~ COMFORTER SETS
_ SHOWER CURTAINS
~ BATHROOM ACCESSORIES



though both countries have
largely similar definitions of tax
fraud.

Under pressure in recent
months from the Justice
Department, Switzerland’s jus-
tice ministry, taxing authority
and banking regulator have
adopted the view that some
American clients of UBS may
have committed tax fraud.

Justice Department officials
hope to prove that the Ameri-
can clients committed fraud and
engaged in tax evasion by con-
cealing their ownership of off-
shore assets, in part by creating
sham entities and then filing
IRS forms that falsely claimed
the entities were the owners of
the accounts.

US law requires American
taxpayers, including trusts and
partnerships, to report all finan-
cial accounts held in a foreign
country if their total value
exceeds $10,000 during the year.
Not doing so can result in a
penalty of up to 50 per cent of
the amount in the account at
the time. In a new tactic, the
Justice Department is focusing
on failure by UBS’s American
clients to file those reports.

The investigation is being aid- -

ed by a former top UBS private
banker, Bradley C Birkenfeld,
who pleaded guilty in June to
helping a client, [gor Olenicoff,
a property developer, conceal
about $200 million in offshore
accounts that were undeclared
to.the IRS. Both men, who are
US citizens, are cooperating
with the investigation.

As part of the inquiry, the
IRS’s criminal division is scru-

clients of UBS and of LGT, a
private bank in Liechtenstein,
and is likely to send some of
those cases to. the Justice
Department for prosecution,

‘according to two people briefed

on the matter. ,

In addition, about 100 clients
of LGT and of UBS are under
active investigation by the IRS’s
civil division, but their names
have not been referred to the
criminal unit for further scruti-
ny. The IRS and the Justice
Department declined to com-
ment on ‘Tuesday.

The 100 client names and
data came trom a former LGT
employee, Heinrich Kieber,
who in 2002 stole company data
on 1,400 worldwide clients and
later turned it over to the IRS
and other countries.

UBS gave the client records
to the Swiss taxing authority
after being urged to do so by
the Swiss banking industry reg-
ulator known as the EBK. The
Swiss “are taking the view that
the client, not UBS, is mostly
to blame,” one of the people
briefed on the matter said.

The data includes account
names, assets, contact informa-
tion, records of foreign entities
incorporated for the purposes
of hiding assets and client
authorizations of trades. Under
Swiss law, the Swiss taxing
authority is required to inform
UBS clients of any disclosures.
American clients can appeal to
the Swiss tax authority not to
turn over the data to the Jus-
tice Department, a process that
can take weeks or even months.

dent and chief executive of the
US Chamber of Commerce’s
Institute for 21st Century Ener-

y.

The initiatives were unveiled
in a Fort Collins presentation
to business and academic lead-
ers with northern Colorado
alternative-energy ventures as
a backdrop.

Jones said Fort Collins was
chosen for the event because
the region’s renewable energy
ventures offer a template for
successful public- and private-
sector cooperation.

“The blueprint is not just a
Washington-based, government
solution,” he said. “It builds on
the principals at work here in
Colorado. The ‘unconventional
partnerships in the public and
private sectors are the key to
finding solutions.”

Jones and other speakers cit-
ed Fort Collins-based ventures
such as Solix Biofuels, a firm
working to commercialize fuel
production from algae; engine
and power-systems developer

S

Woodward Governor; nonprofit
energy technology firm Envi-
rofit; and Colorado State Uni-
versity’s Engines and Energy
Conversion Laboratory.

The chamber’s blueprint calls
for $10 billion in federal money
over 10 years for “clean coal”
technology development, exten-
sion of $15 billion in annual
renewable-energy tax credits for
another eight years, and lifting
of restrictions for oil and gas
production on federal lands and
coastal waters.

Chamber officials said they
have not targeted specific fund-
ing mechanisms to cover the
costs, but said that converting
federal and academic research

‘achievements into private-sec-

tor commercialization will stim-
ulate the economy and create
jobs.

The plan is “a little bit vic-
timized” by the credit crisis,
Jones said, “but it doesn’t take
away from the (energy) prob-
lems at hand and our need to |
find solutions.”

nity for a relatively rare falsecard.

Consider this case where an
inspired falsecard enabled declarer to
make a contract that would otherwise
have been defeated.

West led the king of spades, and it
was obvious to South that the con-

tract was safe if West had the king of

clubs, In that case, a successful
finesse would yield five club tricks
and allow him to make at least four

assumed that South had the A-J alone
and so continued with the queen.
Declarer won, led the queen of clubs
and finessed.

East took the king but was
stymied. He had no more spades to
lead, and whatever clse he returned,
declarer had nine tricks.

Note that even if East had had

* another'spade, South would still have

been on solid ground, since in that
case West would have had only two
more spades to cash.

Lawmakers are upbeat on bailout revival

@ By ANDREW TAYLOR

Associated Press Writer

WASHINGTON (AP) —
Congressional leaders from both
parties said they are hopeful that
a $700 billion financial industry
bailout that derailed in the
House is back on track for quick
passage, thanks partly to a pro-
vision increasing insurance for

‘people’s deposits. President
Bush planned to call lawmakers
asking for their support ahead
of a crucial Senate vote Wednes-
day night.

“T think the Senate thinks it
has the votes and I think it prob-
ably will pass,” House Majority
Leader Steny Hoyer, D-Md.,
said. House Republican Whip

Roy Blunt of Missouri agreed -

that prospects for passage have
improved, and he said he was
particularly heartened by indi-
cations the legislation has
become more appealing to cons
stituents back home.

The plan for Wednesday
night’s vote was set after leaders
there agreed to add tax breaks
for b isinesses and the middle
class and increase deposit insur-
ancé in an attempt to revive the
legislation rejected by the
House.

“No one is glad we have
reached this critical point. ...
Now is our time to work not as

Democrats, not as Republicans,
but as guardians of the public
trust,” said Sen. Harry Reid, D-
Nev. He said he was hopeful the
measure could clear Congress
within days “so that by this
weekend rolling around, we will
have done what we need to do
for the American people.”

Republican Sen. Mitch
McConnell of Kentucky, the
minority leader, said, “We
believe that we have crafted a
way to go forward and to get us
back on track.”

The White House tried to
build support by warning of the
consequences of failure.

“This morning we’re secing
increased evidence of the credit
squeeze on small businesses and
municipalities all across the
country, so it’s critically impor-
tant that we approve legislation
this week and limit further dam-
age to our economy,” White
House spokesman Tony Fratto
said. ,

Democratic presidential nom-
inee Barack Obama and his
GOP rival, John McCain,

* planned to fly to Washington for

the Senate vote, as did Democ-
ratic vice presidential nominee
Joe Biden.

Reid and’ McConnell
appeared likely to win a big vote
in the Senate that would put
pressure on the House to go

along and send the measure to
the White House.

Scrambling to revive a pack-
age that met with bitter derision
among constituents who viewed
it as a giveaway to Wall Street,
the Senate added a number of
sweeteners designed to please
rural lawmakers, including dis-
aster aid for hurricane-battered
states and money for rural
schools. The package was hitch-
ing a ride on a popular measure
to require health plans for 51 or
more employees to give equal
treatment to mental health or
addiction if they cover such ill-
nesses.

Tax

Hoyer, though, said on NBC’s
“Today” show he was concerned
that, the tax additions could com-
plicate the chances of final con-
gressional passage when the leg-
islation comes back to the House
floor for a vote.

“There’s no doubt the tax
package is very controversial,”
he said, adding that “there’s no
doubt in my mind that the Sen-
ate added this because they
thought that’s the only way they
could get it passed.” He said he
wasn’t pleased the tax provisions
were attached to the bill. ;

There are concerns that mod-
erate House Democrats known
as “Blue Dogs” will be repulsed
by the tax breaks, and could vote
no because they have been say-
ing they don’t want to see the
deficit run up even further.

Stocks headed for a lower
open Wednesday, indicating
more of this week’s gyrations as
investors prepare for next big
vote in Washington.

Blunt said one of the reasons
he is more optimistic is that law-
makers are hearing less vocal
opposition from their districts.
He said that calls and e-mails to
congressional offices that were
running about 90 per cent
against the measure earlier now
are at about “50-50.”

“It should be before the
House as quickly as it can,”
Blunt said on NBC. “But we
should not set any artificial time
limit here.” He said that is one of
the factors that doomed the bill,
which was defeated 228-205
Monday, sending Wall Street

into a nosedive with the biggest

sell-off since the post-9-11 trad-
ing period.
Both Blunt and Hoyer said

y

they thought the atmosphere on
the Hill was more conducive to
passage now, saying they believe
an emerging consensus on rais-
ing the federal deposit insurance
to $250,000 has helped signifi-
cantly and that a House vote
could come later this week.
Blunt also said he believes
there’s a better chance of get-
ting the legislation enacted in
the wake of a move to ease
Security and Exchange Com-
mission accounting rules in a
way that would give businesses

_more leeway in how they value

their assets.

Senate Banking Committee
Chairman Christopher Dodd, D-
Conn., emerged from a meeting
Tuesday to tell told reporters,
“I’m told a number of people
who voted ’no’ yesterday are
having serious second thoughts
about it.”

Adding a set of popular busi-
ness tax breaks and legislation
to prevent more than 20 million
middle-class taxpayers from feel-
ing the bite of the alternative
minimum tax promised to win
House GOP votes for the plan
even as it angered moderate
Democrats.

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi,
D-Calif., issued a statement that
suggested she does not like the
move but did not reveal her

. plans. “The Senate will vote

tomorrow night and the Con-
gress will work its will,” Pelosi
said Tuesday. The expected sup-
port of both Obama and
McCain, however, makes it dif-
ficult for Pelosi to ship the mea-
sure back to the Senate with a
different set of vote-getting add-
ons.

The Senate legislation will
contain the increase in the gov-
ernment’s $100,000 cap on
insured bank deposits, part of a
move by lawmakers, Bush and
the two presidential candidates
to try to reassure markets that
the plan will pass this week.

The House vote was a stinging
setback to leaders of both par-
ties. The administration’s pro-
posal, still the heart of the legis-
lation under consideration,
would allow the government to
buy bad mortgages and other
deficient assets held by troubled
financial institutions. If success-

ful, advocates of the plan-

believe, that would help Lift a
major weight off the already
sputtering national economy.

The tax plan passed the Sen- +

THE TRIBUNE OBITUARIES

ig emembering | )

To bein y you final journey home
We did not want to say good-bye. —
We could not help ourselves.
We cried...oh, how we cried.

We should have let go

You were hee o a —
and we, we were left to treasure
Your memory —
again... and again
And so we do. —

A We see your smile in.
“the twinkling eye of a kindly man,
_ We see your joy ina grandfather
laughing witha child
We hear your words as you comforted us —
And we hold on to your strength
With all the strength that we have °
Though we miss you so
Never are you far away
For we think of you with love
Every hour, every day.
