POLICE expect to find out

what appeared to be a slit throat

missing over the weekend.

Officers were alerted by a
passer-by to the body of the girl,
believed to. be aged in her late
teens to varly twenties, lying in
bushes vy a dirt track off
Charles Saunders Highway on
' Saturday.

Appearing to have been in
that position for over 24 hours,
she was wearing only red under-
wear, according to police.

Chief Supt Glenn Miller, offi-
cer in charge of the Central
Detective Unit, confirmed there
were signs that the victim strug-
gled to fight off her killer.

Police now await autopsy
results to confirm the cause of
death. It is too early to say

MP calls for govt to squash
BHA endorsement policy

FORMER Tourism
Minister Obie Wilch-
combe has called on
government to squash
a controversial
Bahamas Hotel Asso-
ciation endorsement
policy — a contract
likened to “extortion”
when first introduced
in 1991.

During his parlia-
mentary contribution
Wednesday, Mr.
Wilchcombe told the

pany’s Welcome
Bahamas book, which
promotes the coun-
try’s twin economic
engines — that of
tourism and the finan-
cial service sector.
The former Cabi-
net Minister also dis-
closed how the BHA

50-year-old Bahami-
an company until the

told hoteliers not to.

House of Assembly that the
BHA was again asking for an
endorsement, or “a payback of
sorts,” from Etienne Dupuch Jr.
Publications in order to gain a
BHA endorsement for the com-

paid.

In condemning the BHA’s
actions, Mr. Wilchcombe said:
“The Bahamas Hotel Association
is wrong to be doing it and should
not be doing it: They cannot be
doing that because it starts with
Dupuch Publications, then it goes
to the taxi drivers, the vendors, it
goes to all. You can’t do that.”

The former Tourism Minister
added that such.a move by the
BHA infringes on local business-
es’ freedom to trade in The
Bahamas.

The original BHA endorse-
ment policy, first proposed in
1991, required businesses to pay
the BHA a percentage of their

and much more



sales, in order to conduct busi-
ness with its member hotels.

The BHA policy applied to

“all products and services” and

required endorsed businesses to

Man, 23, is in critical

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

FREEPORT - A 23-year-old man is
in hospital in critical condition following
a shooting in broad daylight at the Pepper
Pot Restaurant on Saturday morning.

Joseph Adrecko Cooper, of Emerald
Drive, Coral Gardens, was shot in the
head during a row with another man at
the popular eatery on East Sunrise High-
way.

He was taken to Rand Memorial Hos-
pital and later airlifted to Princess Mar-
garet Hospital in Nassau for further treat-
ment. Doctors were unable to operate
due to swelling of his brain.

are searching for the suspect, a 29-year-
old resident of Coral Gardens of
Freeport.

According to Chief Supt Basil Rah-
ming, the shooting occurred around
11.52am in the southern parking lot of
the restaurant.

Unconscious

When police arrived at the scene,
Cooper was unconscious, lying on the
ground near the service road in the
Municipal Plaza. He was bleeding from ¢
gunshot wound behind his right ear.

He was transported by EMS personnel
to the trauma section at Rand Memorial
Hospital.

After receiving emergency medical
treatment, Cooper was airlifted to the
Princess Margaret Hospital, where his
condition was described as critical.

This is the third violent incident at the
Pepper Pot Restaurant, where two men
were murdered last month.

On September 12, Jodie Smith was

stabbed to death follcwiug an altercation

with another man.

And, three days before Smith’s stab-
bing, Roland Elidor, 32, of Hanna Hill,
Eight Mile Rock, was shot several times in
the head and back following an argument
at the same location.

According to preliminary investigations

into Saturday’s shooting, a man wearing a
grey hoody jacket walked into the Pepper
Pot and ordered a phone card.

While. he was being served, Cooper
also entered the restaurant and con-
fronted the man about some matter. The
men started arguing and fighting.

Witnesses

_ Supt Rahming said witnesses reported
that the struggle moved to the outside of
the store and into the southern parking
lot, where the man wearing tk > hoody
pulled out a handgun and fired several
shots at Cooper.

The gunman fled the scene or fc t.

Police are investigating the matter. The
Central Detective Unit on Grand
Bahama is seeking the public’s assistance
in locating the suspect.

‘Spirit of optimism prevails’ despite
local housing market uncertainty

@ By LLOYD ALLEN
Tribune Staff Reporter



DESPITE increasing uncer-
tainty looming over the local
housing market due to ongo-
ing struggles within the global
arena, a spirit of optimism still
prevails, a leading businessman
has claimed.

Many believe, despite a Cen-
tral Bank advisory for con-
sumers to “exercise prudence
and constraints in their spend-
ing,” that the time is right for
buying homes and property.

Arawak Homes president
Franklyn Wilson said on Fri-
day: “Banks have money for
their mortgages and want to
lend money for mortgages, and
so it is a good time for persons
because the banks are willing to
do so.”

Mr Wilson explained that

He said because of this the
local market, which up to a few
months ago was limited, now
provided a greater variety —
related to price and location —
to prospective buyers.

According to Mr Wilson, the
current real estate environment
is a classic case of ‘a buyer’s
market’.

Similar sentiments were also
relayed by president of the
Bahamas Real Estate Associa-
tion William Wong.

Mr Wong indicated that, in
addition to small-scale proper-
ties re-entering the market,
recent pull-outs by large devel-
opment groups had also con-
tributed significantly to the
resurgence of the real estate
market.

Mr Wong said the announce-
ment of a Chapter 11 bank-

ers, a major financier for many

local development groups, had
provided Bahamians with
increased home and commer-
cial property choices.

But even with this new
wealth of options, the question
still remained whether
Bahamians were able to weath-
er this global financial imbal-
ance, in being exposed to the
possibility of foreclosure should
they take on a mortgage.

“Financial institutions see
foreclosure as the last straw,
and that’s not an option that
we use or resort to quickly,”
according to Finco managing
director Tanya McCartney.

She said foreclosure was an
extremely long process, which
involved significant expense,
legal factors, and was frankly
not the first option as far as
banks were concerned.

Because of economic
changes which had been in the
works for the past few years,
challenges had continually
increased for mortgage hold-

ers, but Ms McCartney said _

many banks, including Finco,
had set up various resources to
insure that clients were con-
tacted and offered various
options in an attempt to keep
up with loan payments, and
avoid losing their homes.

“Where possible, we are try-
ing to regularise their mort-
gages perhaps extending terms,
putting them on interest pay-
ments only, really we’re trying
to work out situations.”

Ms McCartney added that,
though market conditions may
give the illusion of a decline in

mortgages, “year over year we |

have seen consistent growth in
our mortgage portfolio, which

includes a lot of young profes-
sionals wishing to get their first
homes.”

However, those who are self-
employed, or work in tourism
or construction-related jobs,
had been affected by changes
within the economy.

According to Ms McCart-
ney, the bottom line was if you
are in the market to buy a
property or home, always make
certain that you have a plan
should your personal or gener-
al economic conditions change.

WHILE the purchasing pow-
er of the Bahamian dollar in
Europe and Asia has decreased
because of a weakened Ameri-

can dollar, one financial expert
says it makes economic sense to
uphold the peg between the two
currencies.

The Bahamian dollar has
been pegged to the American
dollar at parity since the late
1960s after the devaluation of
the pound sterling, to which the
local currency was formerly
linked, according to the Central
Bank. ‘

This means the government
has fixed the rate of currency to
that of the American dollar as
opposed to letting it float in the
currency market subject to the
whims of supply and demand.
This also allows for the US dol-
lar to be exchanged within the
country at a rate of $1 to $1.

The policy has raised a few
concerns that, as the US dollar
falls, the value of the Bahamian
dollar does likewise, underscor-

ing the need for the Bahamian
dollar to detach itself from the
US currency.

But former governor of the
Central Bank of the Bahamas
Julian Francis told The Tribune
that, because North America is
the Bahamas’ main trading part-
ner, it makes long-term sense to
maintain the peg.

Said Mr Francis: “Our dol-

‘It makes sense’ to uphold pe:
- between US, Bahamian dollar

lar is not linked to the American

dollar. Our dollar is pegged at
the same value as the American
dollar. Our government decides
by policy to fix the value of our
currency...to that of the US.

“The main reason that the
Bahamas government has main-
tained the US dollar and
Bahamian dollar peg for more
than the last 40 years is that the
Bahamas’ principal trading part-
ner is North America.

“So it makes a lot of sense

that the Bahamian dollar is

pegged at a level which is con-
sistent with the American dollar,
because again maybe about 80
per cent of our business is with
North America, including Cana-
da. So I really don’t believe that
in the short term it would make
a lot of sense for us to change
that.

“In other words it’s not just a
policy issue, it is a fundamental
issue - our economies are linked.

THE Ministry of Tourism ts
taking advantage of a contro-
versial new method of advertis-
ing which will see trips to the
Bahamas promoted all over the
inside of plane cabins ia the
United States.

While the ministry itseit has
yet to officially reveal its plans
for boosting visitor numbers as
the US economy slumps. the
Los Angeles Times said the
adverts were placed on the eee:
it Airlines jets last week

Adverts are being stuck on
tray tables, overhead bius and
actoss cabin walls in alj 28
planes in the company’s fleet in
a deal struck between that air-
line and the Bahamas Ministry
of Tourism, said the LA Times.
' The images, showing tsland
activilies, will be served up toa
captive audience over a two-
month period. The government
will undoubtedly be anticipat-
ing that the move will improve
the country’s already thinning
tourist numbers, and help min-
imise any further fall-off as
Americans ride out an ecanom-
ic CTISIS.

The cast af the new initiative
will be anywhere between
$5,009 and $2 million depend-
ing on the size of the advert aud
how long it is on the plane.

Spirit Airlines carried 7.8 mil:
lion to destinations acress the
US, the Caribbean and Latin
America last year.

The new trend for lining
planes with advertising was
started by low-cost carrier
Ryanair in Ireland.

tray tables, napkins, drinks carts,

soap dispensers and sick bags

are now all being considered for

advertising space by some car-
tiers.

“It’s the next thing,” said Ter-
ry Trippler, an aviation consul-
tant who runs the travel advi-

“JT could picture an airplane

ing stock cars that are often
laden with sponsors’ logos, “It's

While it will be an extra
source of revenue for cash-
strapped airlines and a new pro-
motional tool for organisations
like the Ministry of Tourism,
uot all airlines see it as a good
move.

United Airlines and Ameri-
can Airlines have both said they
would never put advertising
anywhere other than in their in-
flight entertainment for fear of a
passenger backlash.

“The only advertising cus-

tomers will see onboard is dur-
ing the in-flight entertainment
and in the magazine,” said Unit-
ed spokeswoman Robin Urban-
ski Janikowski, according to the
newspaper.

Airline Advertising Bureau
Inc managing partner John
Caldwell said: “They’re sensi-
tive to not putting too much in
front of the passenger.

“They don’t want to trash up
the interior of the aircraft. Pas-
sengers could feel like they are
being taken advantage of by
having too much crammed down
their throats.”

US resident banned from casino

ROBERT HALAT, an American resident
of the Bahamas, decided to celebrate his 78th

birthday doing what he loves best — gambling’

in an air-conditioned casino. Air-conditioning is
important to Mr Halat, who suffers from
emphysema and is on oxygen to assist his
breathing.-

Many Bahamians wondered how this frail,
elderly American could get caught up in a judi-
cial system already so overburdened with cases
that persons charged with murder are released
on bail and sent back into the community
because their cases cannot be heard within a
reasonable time.

But here was Bob Halat, an American resi-
dent of Lyford Cay, pleading not guilty to a
charge of gambling as a Bahamian citizen. He
was granted $2,000 bail, a higher bail than that
granted in-many instances for more heinous
offences.

Mr Halat explained that he was not a
Bahamian citizen. “I consider myself a glori-
fied tourist,” he told us.

When he retired 18 years ago, Mr Halat and
his French wife moved to the Bahamas. One
thing that attracted him to the Bahamas was
its casinos. Having lived in the South of France,
he enjoyed the role of the dice.

He told the magistrate that he was not a
Bahamian, that he had lived here for 18 years,
gambled for 18 years, spent millions of dollars in
the years he had been here, was a law-abiding
resident with no right to vote. Because of his
health there was not much he could do, but
enjoy the company of his friends at the casino.
At his age this was a comfortable life, certainly
better than sitting at home in front of the tele-
vision with nothing to do. Because of his health
he sold his boat and could no longer travel. He
had turned to the casino as a social outlet.

As a foreigner, he said, he had no MP to
represent him. He believed the Bahamas should
have an Ombudsman, to whom people like him-
self could go for help and advice.

By law no resident in the Bahamas — resi-
dency and not nationality being the key — can
gamble in the casinos. Mr Halat could not gam-
ble because he was a resident. Fortunately, the
court had charged him incorrectly, and so, when
lawyer Michael Kemp who was in court realised

‘that Mr Halat was without legal representation

he stepped up and got him off on the fact that
the charge was wrong — he was not a gambling
Bahamian.

It all started about a year ago, around April,
said Mr Halat, when a young man who used to
park his car at the casino told him that an Immi-
gration officer had been around looking at his
car’s registration number. Two. months later,
he said, the casino informed him that the Gam-
ing Board had instructed it not to extend him
any more credit. He thought this very strange,




The more he thought about it, the stranger it
all seemed, and so he went back to the casino
and demanded a copy of the Gaming Board
letter. At first the casino declined because oth-
er names were on the list. He asked that their
names be scratched out — “although I knew
who they were anyway,” he laughed. He was
then given a photo copy with the other names
crossed out, but was later given an official letter
from the Gaming Board. He noted that
nowhere in the casino was there a sign warning
residents against gambling.

He sought the advice of an MP who agreed
to “work” on his problem for him. But, soon
afterwards, the MP was transferred to a new
Ministry. However, he had been told that “they
were working on it” and the law would be
changed.

Although during this period he did not gam-
ble, he did go to the casino to sit with his friends
and have lunch. And then it was his 78th birth-
day. He decided to spend it will his friends at the
casino.

While there he made another decision. “If
they are not going to do anything about it, I’m
going to do something,” he decided. “I just had
to put a little pepper in the soup!”

He decided to bet on a game of poker.

And that is when the Gaming Board dropped
the boom.

When the magistrate set the $2,000 bail, she
demanded a surety. Mr Sidney Strachan, who

heads the newly formed Committee for Gaming a

Reform and is self employed, offered to stand
bail. However, the court refused to accept him
as a surety unless he could prove his standing.
When he returned to court with his letter of
recommendation, the gambling charges had
already been dropped against Mr Halat.

Although, the charge was dropped, this is the
case that will probably force government to
make a decision as to whether the laws against
gambling should be enforced, or whether gam-
bling should be legalised. But whatever the
decision this country cannot continue to be in
the business of selective justice. And judging
from the letters being sent to the Editor — let-
ters that are so outspoken that they will not be
published — Bahamians are not going to toler-
ate this situation much longer.

Malone, an employee of the Men’s Shop for

Our leaders

are devoid

of practical
solutions

EDITOR, 'The Tribune.

It is written: ‘The leader of the
state must remember three things;
first that he reigns over the peo-
ple; second that he reigns accord-
ing to the laws and third that he
will not reign forever...’ (Greek
Philosopher Agathon).

As it was written, I pray that
the Prime Minister and those per-
sons who hold themselves out to
be leaders will give solemn heed.

In recent times in The
Bahamas we who are not asleep
at the wheel or in a drunken stu-
por below deck have come to the
inescapable conclusion that all is
not well in our nation and the
leaders, so far, seem to be devoid
of practical solutions to the prob-
lems that confront us collectively.

Aristotle in his celebrated work
“Politics” opined centuries ago
that: “If the leader is not wise and
just, how can he rule properly?” I
submit for your consideration that
the Prime Minister and the major-
ity of the current members of the
Honourable House of Assembly
are “out of touch” and are mere-
ly ornaments and props on the
stage called The Bahamas.

I say this without fear of con-
tradiction or the so-called political
repercussions. Crime is out of
control and the police are helpless
to do anything concrete about it.

We have now recorded over 54
suspected homicides for the year.

badly. negotiated proposed Euro-
pean Economic Partnership
Agreement (EPA) is about to be
signed off on and the good people
of The Bahamas have been told,
bluntly, by the erstwhile Minis-
ter of State for Finance (the Hon
Zhivargo Laing, MP) that we
must, in essence, “Shut up and
shake!”

Orders and judgments are
made and pronounced by our
courts of-law, but, in the main,
they are flaunted; ignored and
mocked by all and sundry. Count-
less thousands of Bahamian
mothers are left to fend for them-
selves and their illegitimate
(oftentimes legitimate ones also)
while the fathers are living high
on the hog and striving to impreg-
nate even more gullible and naive
women.

The wider society would
appear not be checking for any-
thing or anyone. Lawyers are out
to amass personal wealth as
quickly as possible and to hell
with the ethical or other conse-
quences.

and property are off the chain.
Petty thieving; road rage; illegal
drug sales and usage are so preva-
lent that they rarely make the
front pages or the radio news.
The judiciary is badly broken
down and no one, especially our
parliamentarians, is checking.
School dropouts are at an all time
high and the truant officers are
non existent.

tions for NEMA and nota single

is being sent to our people?

My. God, what manner of men
and women are in leadership

on God for sustenance and pro-

erend Doctor C B Moss and Bish-
op Neil C Ellis?

ology,

The businessperson is chal-
lenged by the extremely high
costs of doing legitimate business
in The Bahamas.

Many of them are stressed out
to the max and may remain in
business merely to continue a
family traditicn or to satisfy their
entrepreneurial yearnings.

Others use their legitimate
business fronts to allegedly laun-

. der ill gotten gains. Who cares?

The very government, elected
on a promise of “law and order”,
is now seen to be accepting such
funds via NEMA.

As a trained lawyer, I have
often wondered about what it is
to be a Bahamian and whether
or not our societal leaders are
serious about governance and the
maintenance of the social fabric.
Yes, we do have an abundance
of laws but there is a severe prob-
lem with enforcement.

There is also too much selec-
tivity in the infrequent applica-
tion of the same.

That iconic Greek Philosopher,
Plato, wrote: “As in a hospital
where drugs and doctors abound
are many diseases, in a city with
many laws there is a great injus-
tice..

To. God then, in all of these
things, even political philosophy,
be the glory.

Why are Bahamians so
afraid of competition?

EDITOR, The Tribune.

MY partner and I have been looking for a place to open a store.
This has been a very trying experience as we always get:

“That will not be a good thing for our other tenants, etc’

*. Why

are Bahamians so afraid of competition?
Wouldn’t it be better if there were more than one store in the
same location as everyone does not want to eat the same food

every day. Come on! -

Competition brings better prices to consumers as well as improv-
ing the excellence in the service industry.
Perhaps the lack of competition leads to laxidasical attitudes! Just

a thought...
Thanks for your time.

Pistol and
ammunition
‘found in stop
and search’

A GLOCK pistol and 16
live rounds of ammunition
are now safely off the streets
after police discovered them
in the vehicle of a 34-year-
old man during a “stop and
search” operation.

Officers from the mobile
division stopped the tan-
coloured 2002 Chevy Tahoe,
driven by the Brigadoon
Estates resident, at around
1am on Saturday in the St
James Road area.

He is expected to appear
in court as early as today to
be charged with the offence.

Father stabbed
while delving
is still alive

POLICE yesterday said
that a father brutally
stabbed while driving
along Sands Road on Fri-
day is still alive in hospi-
tal, but remains in critical
condition.

The father, in his early
40s, was seen stumbling
out of his black Ford
Expedition vehicle at
around midday on Friday
shortly after officers wit-
nessed a younger man -
who turned out to be his
son - holding him around
the neck from behind and
swinging his other arm
towards him in a stabbing
motion.

Police later pulled his
son out of the Expedition,
and found him in posses-
sion of an eight-inch
knife.

Police press liaison offi-
cer Walter Evans, who
described the scene as
“bizarre”, said yesterday
that officers still hope to
be able to speak with the
father about the incident.

‘deteriorating economic conditions’

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



FREEPORT - The PLP lead-
ership on Grand Bahama are very
concerned about the current
“deteriorating economic condi-
tions” on the island, where they
say Bahamian families are strug-
gling, jobs are scarce and busi-
nesses are closing down.

Constance McDonald, PLP
chairman on Grand Bahama, co-
chairman Patrick Davis, and exec-
utive members Forester Carroll
and Brian Seymour criticised
FNM MPs for their alleged silence
and lack of leadership at such a
difficult and challenging time for
Grand Bahamians.

“No-one can deny that, in all of
Grand Bahama’s history, this is
the very worst of times,” the PLP
said yesterday in Freeport.

According to the PLP, business
is slow for vendors in Port Lucaya
who are now considering opening
their shops two days a week on
days when the cruise ships are in
port.

“In recent times we have had
businesses, including many popu-
lar restaurants, close their doors
permanently because they cannot
afford to pay the electricity bills,”

*said Ms McDonald.

“A proprietor of one of those
eateries has given up completely
and opted to advertise all his
restaurant equipment and supplies
for sale,” she said.

Businessman Jeff Butler, owner
of the Harbour Room at Port
Lucaya, recently closed his restau-
rant. And other businesses are
struggling to keep open while

incurring high operational costs.

The PLP leaders said business
owners are also finding it neces-
sary to lay off workers or put them
on short work-weeks in an effort
to try and keep their doors open.

“Many workers on these jobs
tell us that they don’t get their pay
every week. Some have told of
working for as long as three weeks
before getting paid a little some-
thing on what they are owed,” said
the PLP.

Forester Carroll



The Our Lucaya resort, the only
anchor resort in the Port Lucaya
area and on the island, is experi-
encing low occupancy levels.

The PLP also stressed that
many families are hurting. They
claimed that the FNM further
added to stress to Bahamian
households by drastically raising
customs duties across the board.

“The number of ordinarily
proud Bahamians who come by
seeking assistance for school sup-
plies and lunch for their children,
foodstuffs, assistance with their
mortgage payments, their utility
bills, insurance payments, medical
bills and just about everything one
can think of is astonishing.”

The PLP said FNM MPs have
failed to provide good leadership
and representation for the people
of Grand Bahama.

They noted that there are five

‘ elected FNM members of parlia-

ment in Grand Bahama. Among
them, three senators, a deputy
speaker of the House, a parlia-
mentary secretary in the Prime
Minister’s Office, and three cabi-
net ministers.

“What is terribly ironic is that
while Grand Bahama has never
had the degree of representation
as it has presently in parliament
and at cabinet level, it has the
weakest representation ever,”
claimed the PLP.

“We are appalled, to say the

PM hails the late Harold DeGregory as
‘beacon and servant’ to Grand Bahama

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

PRIME Minister Hubert
Ingraham paid tribute to former
parliamentarian Harold DeGre-
gory during his weekend funer-
al, heralding him as a beacon
and servant to Grand Bahama.

Addressing a congregation of
dignitaries, friends and family
at DeGregory's state service in
West End on Saturday at St
Mary Magdalene Anglican
Church, Mr Ingraham spoke of
his colleague’s entrepreneurial
spirit and “life-long passion for
serving the people” of Grand
Bahama.

This passion was the catalyst
for DeGregory - a former UBP
MP for Grand Bahama - to
enter'the political scene.

Said the prime minister: “His
desire to make even greater con-
tributions to the development
of Grand Bahama led him to
enter the political arena. That

decision placed him in the mid-
dle of a political storm that was
brewing in The Bahamas in
those years.

“His passion for the develop-
ment of Grand Bahama and the
welfare of its people never

waned, and there are many on
this island who have benefited
not only through his business
enterprises but by his personal
generosity.

“Entering the political arena

can be a costly thing, especially °



for a person with a generous
spirit. It was more so back in
the Fifties and Sixties when one
did not get paid to serve. Harold
DeGregory was a gentleman
who maintained his dignity in
all circumstances; he was an
enterprising son of the Grand
Bahama soil, he was a kind and
generous human being.

“His family and friends and,
indeed, ali of Grand Bahama
can take pride in his life, his ser-
vice and his example. I extend
sincere condolences to Mrs -
DeGregory, to the children and
to all the family of Harold
DeGregory. May he rest in
peace.” -

DeGregory, 84, is survived by
his wife Veronica and 17 chil-
dren. He first entered the House
of Assembly in 1960, but lost his
seat three months later after an
Election Court ruled against
election results for his con-
stituency. After a re-election in
1962 he served as MP for Grand
Bahama until 1967.

m By SIR RONALD
SANDERS

(The writer is a business
consultant and former
Caribbean diplomat)

THE many ploys that
the European Commission
(EC) has used to bulldoze
Caribbean countries into
signing the Economic Part-
nership Agreement (EPA)
with the European Union
(EU) are coming to light.

One of the most glaring ©

is a statement by an offi-
cial of the EC who publicly
stated that the Caribbean’s
preferential access to the
EU market would end on
31st October 2008 and
therefore the EPA-had to
be signed by then.

This turns out to be

completely untrue. Indeed, ,

the regulation has no
expiry date.

The following is an offi-
‘cial exchange between a
member of the European
Parliament, David Martin,
and the EC:

“Question: With refer- -

ence to the statement by
the First Secretary of the
Commission office in
Jamaica, as reported in the
Jamaica Gleaner on 29
August, can the Commis-
sion confirm that the Reg-
ulation governing the pref-
erential access to the EU
market for
countries will not expire
but that a decision would
be needed by the Council
before the Regulation
could be withdrawn?
Answer from Commis-
sion: The Commission can
confirm that Council Reg-
ulation 1528/2007 OJ L

3487 .31.12.2007 -has.no-

Due to the death of Norman Solomon,
The Ardastra Gardens, Zoo and
Conservation Centre will be closed on

The Management and Staff of Ardastra salute

Mr. Solomon for his decades of unwavering

dedication and eer and we extend our
deepest condolences to his family.

expiry date and can only
be repealed by a Council
Decision”.

So much for the urgency
of Caribbean countries to
sign the EPA on October
15th; in reality, the signing
could have awaited the
conclusion of the Summit
of African, Carrbbean and
Pacific countries (ACP) in
Ghana on 2 and 3 October
where a thorough discus-

occurred and a consensus
reached.

ly established that the

tialling of the EPA last
December, i.e., ‘the
requirement to impose the
GSP (or higher tariffs) or
crucial Caribbean exports!
was also false. Had the EC
wanted, more time could
have been agreed for fur-
ther negotiations on the
EPA.

Again, the reality is that
because the EC was nego-
tiating with the Caribbean
but had their eyes firmly
fixed on Africa and its vast
resources, they wanted a

so that they could use it as

In this respect, we in the
Caribbean det down Africa
who had stood steadfastly
with us throughout the pre-
vious negotiations with the
EU under the Lomé and
Cotonou treaties. Indeed,
were it not for African
insistence, Caribbean rum
would never have enjoyed
the preferences in the EU
market that it did, and still
does. Africa had insisted
on the rum preferences in
solidarity with the
Caribbean.

This makes it all the
more sad that only one

that the architecture of the
international political
economy resides firmly in
the control of the large,

notwithstanding the recent
economic growth of China,
India and Brazil, and that
small countries, like those
in the Caribbean, will see

If it is that the govern-

partners and to put their

&

belief that the EPA really
is a virtuous agreement,
one has to hope that histo-
ry proves them right or
there will be a high price

to pay.

Delegates

As it is, in tne official
and ministerial meetings
that preceded the ACP
Summit in Ghana, the
Caribbean did not have a
happy time. Reports indi-
cate that, in the corridors,
delegates complained bit-
terly about the Caribbean’s
decision, apart from
Guyana, to sign the full
EPA and the region’s
“inflexibility” during, the
meetings. There were sev-
eral clashes between one
Caribbean delegate, who
stoutly defended the Most
Favoured Nation (MFN)
clause in the EPA, and the
representative of South
Africa and others. ;

The MEN clause has
been a source of con-

itself. Many experts have
argued that because EU
will be able to demand
accelerated tariff liberali-
sation from the Caribbean,
a possible consequence of
trade agreements we make
with other large developed
or developing economies,
exposes Caribbean govern-
ments to the risk of:

e losing revenues: that
will have to be replaced by
direct taxes on their peo-
ple,

e undermining their
efforts to promote South-
South trade and’ strategic
investment policies partic-
ularly with emerging
economies such as China,
India, and Brazil;

- e losing remaining pref-
erences in the EU market
since the EU will have to
extend the same prefer-
ences to other countries
with which it settles trade
agreements. Thus, existing
preferences for bananas
from Dominica, for
instance, will be very short-
lived.

Guyana is the one

tention in the Caribbean

Caribbean country that has
been in limbo over the past
few weeks. All the other
Caribbean countries have
decided to sign the EPA
and they have set October
15th as the date to do so in
Barbados. In a letter to the
EC President, Jose Bar-
roso, Guyana’s President
Bharrat Jagdeo, made it
clear that the Government
is prepared to “sign onto
the ‘Trade in Goods’ Sec-
tion of the Agreement
thereby making it fully
WTO-compatible, and to
continue negotiations with
the EC, on the other disci-
plines covered by the pre-

sent initialled text, with the.

aim of achieving an agree-

ment that would be more.

develo »ment oriented than
the current one”.

Guyana was also active
at the ACP Summit. It was

The

the only Caribbean coun-
try with a senior minister
there. It may yet be possi-
ble for Guyana to sign the
“goods only” agreement -
provided it gives the EU
an undertaking to contin-
ue negotiations on the ser-
vices and other issues in
the EPA.

One thing is for sure —

‘Caribbean governments are

victims of enormous pres-
sure and ploys by the EC.
In the course of it, the
bonds of the ACP have
been broken rendering the

‘group weak and irrelevant,

and shattering the solidar-
ity of developing nations at
a time in the international
community when they des-
perately, need to stick
together.

W hat pops in your
mind when you

think of a real estate contract?
The price, right? It’s the, critical
term, but far from the only important factor to be considered
by buyers or sellers. There are costs, finances, conveyances,
and consequences to consider.

Typical costs include commissions, inspections, stamp tax,
legal fees and so on. Your BREA representative should
firmly negotiate and explain who pays for what.

How about the deposit and financing contingencies?
Unless the buyers can pay cash, an escape clause should.
release them from obligation if financing falls through. Spec-
ifying that the loan will be secured at a certain interest rate
provides further protection.

Also pay close attention to conveyances of personal prop-
erty, such as some appliances, lighting or window treat-
ments, or furnishing. Avoid argument and further negotia-
tion by assuring there is zero confusion about what is includ-
ed in the sale price.

Another factor that should be clearly spelled out is the con-
sequences of a breach in contract by either side. This is a
binding legal document, whereby buyers in breach can lose
their deposit, or sellers in breach can be sued for “specific
performance” to force the sale of the home.

It's best for you and your BREA agent to review a stan-
dard offer before you make or consider an offer. Know
what to expect and be prepared to negotiate to Yes!

negotiations, Mr Greenidge sug-
gested that while the Caribbean
often likes to “think of itself as
very special” in the world, and
therefore worthy of different
treatment, there is little justifi-
cation for this.

His comments are likely to
ruffle the feathers of this coun-
try’s EPA oponents, who see
the agreement as representing
a threat to the country’s future
development and have called for
an alternative way forward.

Speaking at a Globalisation ,

Conference at the Sheraton
Nassau Beach Resort on Friday,
he set out to debunk many of
the criticisms of the EPA and
the alternatives that have been
proposed to signing on as the
region — except Guyana, which
wants a “goods only” EPA, and
Haiti - is expected to do on
October 15.

The conference was organised
by the Bahamas Chamber of

Commerce, in conjunction with
the Bahamas Hotel Association,
the Ministry of Finance and the
Inter-American Development
Bank,

A former Minister of Finance
in Guyana for more than a
decade, Mr Greenidge said the
options that detractors propose
- such as getting a waiver, rene-
gotiating the agreement or stick-
ing with the expired Cotonou
agreement that
Caribbean countries to be treat-
ed in a preferential way - “don’t
exist at all.”

“The search for salvation in
international trade fora is a
dream,” he stated. “The world is
changing. Everything is about
change, especially when it comes
to trade matters.” ~

Whereas critics question why
the government is including ser-
vices in the liberalisation offer
made to Europe, Mr Greenidge

whether she had been sexually assaulted, according to CSP Miller,
although the circumstances in which she was found make it likely

this was the case.

In a statement, police press liaison officer Walter Evans appealed
for the public to come forward and assist police in determining the

victim’s identity.

Yesterday, CSP Miller said police have been approached by
somebody reporting a missing young girl, but they have not yet had
an opportunity to determine whether the victim is that person.

“We'll see if they can do that tomorrow,” said CSP Miller.

allowed.

contends it is in the region’s
interest that services were a part
of the EPA as this is primarily
what its members trade in,
rather than goods, like food or
clothing, and therefore where
we stand to gain an advantage.

As to the complaint that this
is nO win as companies in our
services industries are not posi-
tioned to compete at the Euro-
pean level, Mr Greenidge said:
“That’s the case now but there
are a number of areas in which
the Bahamas already provides
international services and it is
very well-known in these areas.
The point is, if you only stick
with the services you currently
have, why do you think you'll
survive? That is the question to
ask.”

However, Mr Greenidge
admitted the “potential” that
lies within the EPA “does not,
come just from signing it.”

He said countries must “equip
themselves in good time”,
among other things, improving
productivity levels to make the
most of the deal.

He also proposed that while
the challenges associated with
the implementation of the EPA
on the administrative side - for
example, major customs reform
for the Bahamas - will be “enor-
mous” and “burdensome”, they
are nonetheless necessary and
allowing us to access the “exten-
sive benefits” the EPA provides
for.

Contrary to the assertion that
the region was “bullied” by the

European Union into giving up

THE TRIBUNE



its preferential, non-reciprocal
trade jfarrangement, Mr
srecnidge said it was, in fact,
other developing countries like
Colombia and Costa Rica, see-
ing our special treatment as
unfair, that made the initial plea
for change.

Meanwhile, had Europe failed
to come to a new trade agree-
ment with its former colgnies as
mandated by the World Trade
Organisation in light of the pleas
from its member countries, it
would have faced trade sanc-
tions - a prospect we could not
reasonably ask them to bear on
our behalf, said Mr Greenidge.

He suggested that, by enter-
ing into the EPA, countries like
the Bahamas will be better posi-
tioned to undertake much-need-
ed economic diversification.

“This region is quite narrow-
ly focused on tourism (and) it
is one sector. When the US
sneezes you will get pneumonia,
so why do you assume that it’s
safe? Diversification is actually
the protection against that type
of risk. In order to diversify you
diversify into a market that is
sympathetic, you negotiate a
market that is sympathetic, and
that is what you have done
here.”

His comments came as lead-
ers of some countries attending
the African, Caribbean and
Pacific (ACP) Summit in
Ghana, Africa, last week
announced after four days of
intense debate that they would
like the EPA reviewed. Deputy
Prime Minister Brent Symon-
ette attended the meeting,
which saw Africans protest
against the EPA in the Ghana-
ian capital.

mation and all records relating to the endorsed
product.

When the policy was first introduced 17
years ago, outraged local businesses and par-
liamentarians immediately took steps to kill it,
as they were of the view that any efforts by the
BHA to endorse any products and/or services
would be disruptive and counter productive to
the efforts of Bahamian businesses to operate
freely in The Bahamas.

Former FNM MP for Shirlea, Pierre
Dupuch blew the whistle in the House on the
BHA’s endorsement scheme in 1991, and
pointed out that the BHA’s policy would
usurp government’s powers, kill competition
and create monopolies.

He charged that the hotel association want-
ed to take over the government’s responsi-
bility of taxing the people.

“They call this method of extortion and
kickbacks, endorsement,” Mr. Dupuch said
in the House of Assembly in July, 1991.

At that time he told parliamentarians that .
the hotel association was guilty of crea

diabolical system that will make everybody
who does business with them give them —
the only thing you can call it is — a kickback.
And if you are not prepared to give them a
kickback they are not prepared to do busi-
ness with you.”

That same year other businesses, like lead-
ing tour operator William Saunders, strongly
condemned the BHA’s endorsement scheme.

“T wish to go on record to you that we are
against the proposal of having to obtain an
endorsement in order to be able to become a
preferred supplier to the BHA,” Mr. Saunders
said at the time.

“We also feel very strongly that the BHA
would be infringing on the rights of Bahami-
an companies being able to do business in
their own country only through a BHA
endorsement,” Mr Saunders said.

Seven years later, in 1998, the BHA again
attempted to resurrect its endorsement policy,
but failed, as businesses thought the payment
of endorsement fees.of any kind would.set,

that did business with the hotels, including
but not limited to tour operators, activities,
stores, printers, taxi drivers, ground trans-
portation companies and grocers.

Now, in 2008, the endorsement policy has
again resurfaced.

Recently, the BHA contacted their mem-
bers advising them not to sign contracts with
Dupuch Publications unless they are endorsed
by the BHA. The company’s numerous tourist
and business publications provide visitors with
a glimpse into island life and promote tourism
and investment in The Bahamas.

While making his contributions in the
House of Assembly Wednesday, Mr Wilch-
combe strongly condemned the BHA for its
attempted actions.

“T want to lay these on the table of the
House of Assembly, Mr. Speaker, because I
think it’s important to see where it is coming
from,” Mr. Wilchcombe said. “The President
of the Bahamas Hotel Association saying that
you will not be recognized...we will not give

you any business (unless endorsed). That can’t
HEtight in this country. I don’t carewhoiit is.”

an increase in the hurdles.

local banks must remain “vig- :

ing situation at home.

“I can say that our foreclo- ;

“We engaged in this simile

exercise during which we hold up
for emulation the achievement of
our best. Our aim must be to
achieve and maintain a high level
of individual and collective per-
formance,” said Mr Ingraham.

This week was the ninth annu-
al Public Service Week. The
Recognition of Retirees ceremo-
ny took place at the Christ Com-
munity Church on Bellot Road
yesterday morning.

Mr Ingraham said: “Some 221
individuals retired from the Pub-
lic Service during the 2007/2008
year. The majority having com-
pleted 30 or more years of ser-
vice, which is no small accom-
plishment. Thirteen public offi-
cers have been selected by their
respective ministries and depart-
ments for outstanding and exem-
plary performance during the past
year.”

He added: “The theme for this
year’s Public Service Week,
‘Improving the Delivery of Qual-
ity Customer Service,’ appears to
be a challenge today; it used to be
the hallmark of public service.
The retirees we honour today
know of what I speak; so also do
our nominees for Public Officer
of the Year.

“In their working years they
have lived by and honoured the
precept: an honest day’s work for
an honest day’s pay.”

Mr Ingraham recognised ‘that
some of those being honoured
started out at the lower end of

Prime Minister

the public service and worked
their way up through the ranks.

“They were willing to attend ©

evening classes, they were cour-
teous; they were disciplined, they
respected authority, and they
were not afraid of hard work.

“Sadly, these core characteris-
tics are not in abundant supply
in our society today; and unhap-
pily, this is reflected in our public
service which mirrors our soci-
ety.”

Mr Ingraham told those gath-
ered, which included senior pub-
lic officers, retired public officers
and church members, that
Bahamians must continue to
“position The Bahamas, not only
to maintain our economic status,
but also to adapt to any number

_ of unexpected eventualities in the

world’s economy, such as that
being experienced now.’

The prime minister congratu-
lated all of this year’s retirees,
who he said “have made signifi-
cant contributions in their respec-
tive areas over many years.”

“Their dedication and commit-
ment on behalf of the Bahamian
people are indeed highly appre-
ciated,” he added.

He thanked the Public Service
Week Committee for their work,
as well as all serving public offi-
cers for their continued commit-
ment, encouraging each “to make
quality service your hallmark and
in so doing bring high praise to
your profession and to your coun-
try.”

Llewellyn “Gus” Cartwright
Celebrating “35” years of Entrepreneurship
September 1973 — 2008 |

In September, 1973 the Bahamas business sector witnessed the emergence of
a new entrepreneur in the person of Llewellyn “Gus” Cartwright. The sector
would gain a dedicated young spark that made it his mission to contribute
in a meaningful way to the growth and development of Bahamian business.

_ Asa young boy the desire and spirit of an entrepreneur was placed in Gus’s

psyche as he observed his mother working two (2) jobs to take care of their
family. In his early teens Gus was forced to take on employment working

‘two jobs after school and on week-ends in addition to completing his mane

work and chores.

Upon completing his high school education, he went to work with his uncle
Herbert Treco in the construction field where the compensation was little
but the desire to learn the trade was great. In 1971, and more so in 1972,
due to the inconsistency and decline in the construction field, Gus traveled

to Chicago to Martial Arts school where he obtained a 5" degree black’.

belt in Karate earning the designation of Master. Upon his return to New
Providence, he opened his first business, a Karate school, operating out

of a rented building on Shirley Street. The Karate school was the training.

ground for croupiers from Paradise Island, the Defense Force and the man
or woman off the street desiring to become the Bruce Lee’s of the Bahamas.
During this period he remained in the construction field which provided
supplemental income and allowed him to further his knowledge of the
construction industry. The construction industry would be the young Karate
teacher’s saviour when the school on Shirley Street burned down. However,

whilst working construction Gus was able to purchase a building of his own
_ in Bilney Lane where the martial school re-opened.

In 1979, Gus in the spirit of entruepruenership incorporated and opened
Family Fashions, a clothing and shoe store. His Uncle Thomas Treco owner
of Shane’s Department store provided him mentorship in the retail business.

a rebound on the stock mar- i

as preliminary evidence of this.. :

The first store opened in the current FNM headquarters building, and after jf
a few years relocated to the building south of the Headquarters which Gus fi
purchased. The business expanded to a second location in the Madeira

‘While operating Family Fashions Gus continued to manage and teach martial

own roofing company. The management of the clothing business was passed
over to his wife Cassandra.

In 1989, still unsatisfied with his financial situation, Gus incorporated a
second company Checkers Café, a Bahamian food business. His mother
Muriel Cartwright and his uncle Hebert Treco provided the knowledge and f
guidance for this new enterprise which operated out of the Mackey Street ff
property. During the period Gus continued working construction and the _
second retail store remained in operation. Gus realized quite quickly that
this new venture required more attention and focus than any of his other |
business ventures. The restaurant business required very early mornings, late |
nights, determination, perseverance, an inexhaustible amount of patience,
strong management and negotiation skills. The retail clothing business was |
_ closed once Checkers success, became apparent.. Checkers continues to
compete with the American fast-food giants that are operating franchises
within the Bahamas. It now has three (3) strategically placed locations with
an additional location opening in the near future. :

Ten - Dodge Ram 1500's
‘Six - C evy"silverado’s

Seeking to diversify his investments Mr. Cartwright opened Sunrise
Washhouse, a Laundromat business located at Bar 20 corner.

A humanitarian at heart Mr. Cartwright has through the years donated
to individuals and organizations, such as pastors, churches, schools, the
sick, sporting, civic. and rehabilitative organizations. Many students have
also been able to further their tertiary education with. the assistance of Mr.
Cartwright and his businesses.

During the entire span of his business life, some thirty five (35) years, Mr.
Cartwright a man that came from humble beginnings can surely be labeled
as a successful self-employed individual and entrepreneur.

THIS past summer, students in

business skills during their intern-

A major donor to the pro-

three awards for students within
this top merit scholarship pro-
gramme at'COB.

In addition to its financial
donation, the bank has granted
internships to three of the schol-
ars for the past two summers.

FirstCaribbean’s managing
director Sharon Brown said,
“FirstCaribbean’s commitment to
education is well-articulated. We
continue to provide a world-class
experience to our stellar schol-
ars.

“Our team of experts in the
various segments of the bank
guide and support the students,
while ensuring that they complete
real tasks. The three president’s
scholars are truly outstanding.

es to pursue a career in law or

diplomacy. Having worked in the
managing director’s office along-
side the bank’s legal counsel and
the corporate secretary, Delia
said, “I am truly grateful for the
significant knowledge and expe-
rience I gained. I interacted with
a variety of persons and learned
team-building skills, and I also
observed great managers, learned
about my own strengths and
weaknesses, greatly improved my
organisation skills and learned
the efficiencies of corporate cul-
ture.”

A third-year economics and
finance major, Dominic embraced
the opportunity to work in the
bank’s operations department
and was able to practice some of
the theoretical concepts he had
already learned at college, such
as visiting the Central Bank clear-

ing house for processing and
clearing cheques. He said, “Oper-
ations is the nucleus of the bank,
It is behind the scenes and really
constitutes the inner workings of
the business, you get to learn how
everything works.” |

Another third-year scholar,
LaNadia is pursuing studies in
accounting. Describing herself
as shy, she felt this work experi-
ence motivated her to improve
her social and professional skills.
As a result of her FirstCaribbean
internship, LaNadia is considering
combining her accounting major
with banking and finance.

“I worked in the wealth man-
agement segment of the bank and
I learned more about the offshore
sector.”

“TI was previously thinking only
about accounting, but now I
realise that there are so many



more possibilities,” she said.

Lottis Shearer, director of stu-
dent leadership at COB with
oversight for the PSP, said that
she was “very pleased” to work
with FirstCaribbean Bank as a
partner in the programme.

“They have been enthusiastic
about the programme from day
one and they have followed
through with everything that was
promised, consistently offering
internships to scholars and even
other COB students.

“Scholars who participate in
professional internships, such as
the experience that First-
Caribbean gives its interns, earn
invaluable organisational skills,
helping them to perform even
better in their studies. Moreover,
the experience continues to be
great at building the scholars’ self-
esteem,” she said.

International Day
of Older Persons




is observed

@ By LLONELLA GILBERT
Bahamas Information
Services
THE United Nations esti-

mates that by 2050 older per-

sons will account for a quarter
of the population of the

Caribbean, Minister of Labour

and Social. Development Sen-

~ ator Dion Foulkes said at the

International Day of Older

Persons ‘Church Service held

at the Church of God of

Prophecy East Street Taber-

nacle.

The service éomimended a
month of activities planned by
the Ministry of Labour and
Social Development and the
National Council on Older
Persons to raise awareness
about the concerns and contri-
butions of older persons.

Mr Foulkes said that accord-
ing to the UN, the most rapid
population growth will happen
in countries least able to cope
with the impact of aging, which
could result in increased pover-
ty, isolation, decline in hous-
ing, healthcare and the gener-
al quality of life if nations do
not adequately prepare.

“It is therefore very fitting
that the Bahamas has adopt-
ed the UN theme, ‘Rights of
Older Persons’ while we exam-
ine closely the aging of our
population,” he said.

Mr Foulkes explained that
the country has a small popu-
lation with limited resources,
which must be shared across
an archipelago, so manage-
ment of any service or resource
is very difficult.

: : cz s

“Throughout our history,”
he said, “strong family ties and
cooperation between the gen-
erations has long been the
oe that bound us togeth-

r, Parents would go to work
with the comfort and knowl-
edge that grandparents would
care and nurture their chil-
dren.”

Mr Foulkes added, “During
extreme economic hardship,
parents would also travel to
other islands or abroad, as dur-
ing the days of the contract,
leaving their children in the
care of grandparents in order
for them to earn a better stan-
dard of living.”

He said grandparents not
only helped with child care,
they were also a stabilising
force in the family and the
wider community, ensuring the
continuity and cohesiveness of
the country as a whole.

‘However, as a result of
imported popular culture, we
have exchanged these values
for those which we think are
more sophisticated and we are
reaping its unpleasant results.”

The Minister said family val-
ues have declined in many seg-
ments of the population and
the elderly have been margin-
alised.

Therefore, the etiallese for
the government is to raise the
“collective consciousness of the
Bahamian people” to the sig-
nificance of not only caring for
older persons, but in valuing
and protecting their rights, he
said.

Mr Foulkes noted that the
increased number of older per-



sons as projected by the UN
will signify a decreased labour
force and increased demands
on the healthcare system,
National Insurance, and social
services.

“However, these issues can
be mitigated by a proper plan
of action, inclusive. of proac-

tive education, health care and |

social services,” the Minister
said.

Mr Foulkes explained that
as the government seeks to
address issues pertaining to the
elderly, it must ensure that old-
er persons are included in the

process, as they are a valued

-resource which is too often

overlooked.

Bishop Franklyn Ferguson
Minister of the Gospel Church
of God of Prophecy said if old-
er persons are ignored, the
price will be paid in the future.

“To disrespect their legacy
and to ignore their wisdom and
skill always bring calamity this
is painful and that happens in a
lot of places around the world
and we see this even in our
own country.”

Bishop Ferguson said older
persons should feel loved,
respected and be aware that
someone cares for them.

The upcoming scheduled
event for National Older Per-
sons Month will be held Fri-
day, October.17, where the
government will partner with
the Parkinson Foundation to
host a forum entitled, “Improv-
ing the Quality of Life” at
Transfiguration Baptist
Church Hall, Market and
Vesey Street.

According to conservative

Atlantic romanticism.”

Disillusioned

Barack Obama’s candidacy
comes after two presidential
elections that left many disen-
franchised and disillusioned
American voters, some of
whom now feel that they were
tricked into submission through
scare tactics such as the release
of terrorists’ .tapes to the media
or the apparent elevation of the
threat level at opportune times.
‘The oratorically-gifted Demo-
cratic nominee overcame
numerous odds on his way to
securing his party’s nomination.
particularly since Hillary Clin-
ton, the New York Senator and
former first lady, seems to have
been a prima donna and politi-
cal bully wha appeared to be

manipulative and sought to
change her_party’s nominating

rules, even of it. meant taking

the issue to the convention
floor.

Alter Obama clinched the
nomination, it seems that Mrs
Clinton was urged by Democ-
ratic heavyweights interested in
unifying their party to drop her
challenge and officially with-
draw her candidacy.

Lately, the John McCain-Sarah

Palin ticket has been attempting
to dismiss the Democratic nom
inee as inexperienced ana
unprepared: McCain. also
mockingly referred to as
McBush or MsSame, appears
io be conducting a shrewd, cun-
ning campaign where theatri-
cal surrogates have sought te
concoct stories, scenarios, and
personal and palitical achieve-
ments all in the interest of win-
ning.

The shotgun marriage
between McCain and his cho-
sen running mate — Palla —
seems to have been a plan to
appease the base of the right
wing (Grand Ole Party) and use
Palin as the ‘token female’, with
hopes of appealing to disgrun-
tled Hillary Clinton voters.

Although John MeCain —
who has aligned himself with

“man,

«




Bush with 95 per cent of his
Senatorial votes in the last eight
years — claims to be an agent
of change, he has flip-flopped
on prominent issues and the
Republicans, who have con-
trolled the White House for the
last eight years and the Con-
gress for six of them, have
called the shots for most of
McCain’s 26 years in office.
His seemingly poorly vetted
selection of Alaska Governor
Sarah Palin, who appears to de
a ditzy and wholly unprepaied
to be a heartbeat away frori the
presidency, is possibly MeCain’s
first major blunder.

New York Times columiust
Frank Rich, who reters to
McCain’s VP pick as an “ideo-
logical sell-out,” in addressing
the Palin choice in his Septem-
ber 6 column said:

“He (McCain) wanted to
choose the pro-abortion-rights
Joe Lieberman as his vice-pres-
ident. If he were still a true
maverick, he would have done
so. But instead he chose parti-
sanship and pclitics over coun-
try. ‘God only made one John

heads to frequently compare °

her to dumb blondes. This self-
confessed ‘hockey mum’ and
lover of moose stew has been
propelled into the world spot-
light as a potential saviour of
the Republican party’s presi-
dential hopes.

“We still don’t know a lot
about Palin except that she’s
better at delivering a speech
than McCain and that she
‘defends her own pregnant
daughter’s right to privacy even
as she would have the govern-
ment intrude to police the
reproductive choices of all oth-
er women. Most of the rest of
the biography supplied by her
and the McCain camp is fic-
tion,” Rich asserts.

Mrs Palin, who recently has
seemingly been a_ gaffe
machine, thrilled a dreary
Republican convention, so
much so that they have now lift-
ed Mr Obama’s message of
hope and change. The former
sports reporter, who has served
as mayor of a small town of
5,000 people (Wasilla) and 20
months as governor of a state of
650,000, appeared clueless when
quizzed about the Bush doc-
trine, claims to have foreign
policy experience because Alas-
ka and Canada share a border
and because Alaska and Russia

are relatively close, although |

the Bering Strait clearly sepa-
rate these places and she has
seemingly had little to no inter-
action with any of these coun-
tries in her capacity as gover-
nor. Furthermore, she claims to

have been opposed to congres-
sional earmarks although she
previously accepted federal
pork.

According, to Frank Rich:
“(Palin) didn’t say ‘no thanks’
to the ‘Bridge to Nowhere’ until
after Congress had already
abandoned it but given Alaska
a blank check for $223 million
in taxpayers’ money anyway.

“Far from rejecting federal |

pork, she hired lobbyists to
secure her town a dispropor-
tionate share of earmarks
($1,000 per resident in 2002, 20
times the per capita average in
other states). Though McCain
claimed ‘she has had national
security as one of her primary
responsibilities,’ she has never

issued a single command as °|_

head of the Alaska National
Guard.

As for her ‘executive experi-
ence’ as mayor, she told her

‘hometown paper in Wasilla,

Alaska, in 1996, the year of her
election: ‘It’s not rocket science.
It’s $6 million and 53 employ-
ees.’ Her much-advertised cru-
sade against officials abusing
their office is now compromised
by a bipartisan ethics investiga-
tion into charges that she did
the same.”

Sarah Palin, winner of the
Miss Wasila beauty pageant in
1984, also appears to have been
indecisive or not too bright
even during her college years,
transferring back and forth
between Hawaii Pacific College
(now University), where she
spent one semester (1982); then
on to North Idaho College for
two years of general studies
(1983); then to the University of

Idaho; then to Matanuska-
Susitna College in Alaska, and
finally returning to the Univer-
sity of Idaho, where she gradu-
ated in 1987 with a degree in
journalism and a minor in polit-
ical science.

e HAPPY WORLD TEACH-
ERS DAY TO ALL THOSE
TEACHERS WHO HAVE
HELPED TO MOULD ME
AND COUNTLESS OTHE?
BAHAMIANS!

I’m always perplexed when I encounter rude, uncivil “‘civ-
il’ servants who seemingly forget that their salaries are paid
by taxpayers and that they should always be polite.

Last week Thursday, I visited the Ministry of Housing on
Charlotte Street for a briefing with Minister Kenneth Russell.
After being told by one of the minister’s office staff that he
was not there, I left. However, as I was about to exit the min-
istry, a lady at the front desk told me that she had just seen
the minister and that he had probably not arrived at his
office area as. yet.

Acting on her recommendation that I sit in the lobby until
she could contact him or he walked inside, I waited.

Ten minutes later, a staff member from the minister’s
office came to the front desk and, upon seeing me, proceed-
ed to publicly address me in a discourteous, hostile manner
while staring scowlingly at me.

Frankly, she was so loud and disrespectful — even shout-
ing that she knew the minister’s schedule and that he was out
of the building — that astonished persons from within the
ministry came out, obviously wondering what the commotion
was about.

Taken aback, I spoke to her sternly about her attitude and
sought to discover what could possibly have warranted her
boorish behaviour. She never inquired to discover if I had
been dvised to wait and, frankly, behaved as if she owned the
ministry.

She -ven threatened that any document that is sent to the
minist~r must come across her desk, subtly suggesting that she
can I::se a file or two, or any note that I left. I was livid!

- Immediately after her ear-splitting rudeness, parliamentary
secretary Brensil Rolle exited his office. I expressed my con-
cerns ‘o him and he apologised for this obviously uncouth
public servant. I have also spoken to the minister, who
expressed his objections to his staffer’s behaviour.

As I was leaving, two staffers and the security officers at
the ministry - who witnessed the encounter - expressed their
detestation of the nasty attitude of this “uncivil” servant,
who I’m told has behaved in that manner with other visitors
to the minister. :

Maybe her position in the minister’s office has empowered
her — at least in her mind — in more ways than reality
reflects.

I always wonder why these people are hired and placed in
positions where they must interact with the public. Were
these people ever trained by the Bahama Host programme or,
at least, to give courteous customer service? ‘

Olmert to urge Moscow: Don’t arm Israel’s enemies

@ By AMY TEIBEL
JERUSALEM

Prime Minister Ehud Olmert,
traveling to Russia this week on
one of his last diplomatic mis-
sions, said Sunday he would
urge Moscow not to sell sophis-
ticated weapons to Israel's ene-
mies, according to the Associ-
ated Press.

Iran is interested in buying
anti-aircraft missiles that could
cripple any military strike
against its nuclear program.
Israel is also afraid Moscow
would sell Syria the same mis-
sile defense system.

In an overture before the trip,
Israel's Cabinet voted Sunday
to recognize Russia's claim to
property in downtown
Jerusalem. Russia laid claim to
the site, named for the son of a
Russian czar, on behalf of the
Russian Orthodox Church.

Olmert travels to Russia on
Monday with little diplomatic
clout: Within weeks, he is to
step aside, driven from office
by multiple corruption allega-

tions. But he told his Cabinet
on Sunday that he would use
the two-day visit to bring up
security issues of long-standing
concern in his talks with Russ-
ian leaders.

"We will remind them again
of matters that trouble us great-
ly," including "the supply of
arms to irresponsible elements
whose activities worry us very
much,
in a televised statement, without
elaborating. He also said he
would press to keep working to
resolve "the Iranian problem,
where Russia plays a special
role."

Iranian President Mahmoud
Ahmadinejad has frequently
called for Israel's destruction,
and Israel suspects he means to
carry out that objective by
developing nuclear bombs, with
the help of a Russian-built
nuclear power plant. Iran says
its nuclear-program is for peace-
ful purposes.

Israel hopes international
diplomacy will persuade Iran to
halt its nuclear program but says

"the prime minister said,



INTERNATIONAL NEWS

"all options are on the table" if
diplomacy fails. In 1981, Israeli
warplanes destroyed an Iraqi
nuclear reactor.

The U.N. Security Council
has approved three rounds of
sanctions on Iran. But Russia, a
council member with veto pow-
er, opposes tightening the sanc-
tions any further.

Iran says it plans to buy from
Russia advanced S-300 anti-air-
craft missiles that could detect
aircraft sent to destroy its
nuclear facilities. Syria, which
backs Hezbollah guerrillas who
battled Israel in Lebanon in
2006, reportedly has asked to
buy them, too.

Russia has not confirmed the
reports. But recently, Russia's -
foreign minister, Sergey Lavrov,
said his government was pre-
pared to sell Syria arms with a
"defensive character."

Israel claims Russian missiles
sold to Syria made their way
into the Hezbollah's hands in
the 2006 war, though it has not
accused Russia of directly arm-
ing the guerrilla group.



THE TRIBUNE



ISRAELI PRIME MINISTER Ehud Olmert scale at the ene cabinet oa in Jerusalem, Sunday, Oct.
5, 2008. Israeli prime Minister Ehud Olmert has resigned in a corruption scandal but remains caretaker prime
minister until his successor as head of the ruling Kadima party, Tzipi Livni, forms a coalition.

MMMM oe POMS TYE

Syria is holding indirect peace
negotiations with Israel, but the
two enemies remain in a state of
war.

After four decades of Cold
War animosity, ties between
Moscow and Israel improved
significantly after the disinte-

gration of the Soviet Union in
1991. Israel is also home to
more than | million Soviet emi-
gres. But Moscow's position on
Iran and arms sales to Syria
have strained ties, as have

Israeli weapons sales to Geor- |

gia, which Russia briefly invad-

ed in August in support of pro-
Russia secessionists.

The Cabinet's decision on
Sunday to transfer ownership
over "Sergei's Courtyard" in
downtown Jerusalem was
meant to improve the diplo-
matic climate before the visit.

The site, named for Grand
Duke Sergei Alexandrovich, a
son of Czar Alexander II, was
built in 1890 to accommodate
Russians making pilgrimages to
the Holy Land. Israel bought
other Russian property in the
area 45 years ago.

Rice: US not trying to undermine Russia

1 By ROBERT BURNS

ASTANA, Kazakhstan

U.S. efforts to build closer ties to this

' energy-rich former Soviet republic are not

meant to undermine Russian influence in
Central Asia, Secretary of State Con-
doleezza Rice said Sunday, according to
the Associated Press.

"We don't see any of this as a zero-sum
game," she told reporters flying with her
to the Kazakh capital from India. U.S. gains
need not mean Russian losses, she said.

"First of all, Kazakhstan is an indepen-
dent country. It can have friendships with
whomever it wishes," she said.

"That is, I think, perfectly acceptable in
the 21st century, so we don't see and don't

accept any notion of a-‘special sphere of

influence" for Russia in this region.

Later, at a news conference with Foreign
Minister Marat Tazhin, Rice said no one
should question Kazakhstan's desire to have
good relations with all countries in its

‘6 PACK 12 OZ
REGULAR ONLY

YELLOW
ONIONS _

region. "This is not some kind of contest for
the affection of Kazakhstan," Rice said.

Tazhin said his country's relationship
with the United States was "stable" and
had "strategic character." Kazakh ties with
Russia, he said, are "excellent" and "polit-
ically correct." ;

Asked by a reporter whether he consid-
ered his country to be in a Russian "sphere
of influence," Tazhin said no and that he
believed such a question was of interest
mainly to academics and to journalists. Rice
later met with Prime Minister Karim Masi-
mov and President Nursultan Nazarbayev,
Kazakhstan's autocratic ruler who has main-
tained a military alliance and close rela-
tions with Russia. He also has kept a door
open to the West and looked to develop
new export routes to Europe for Kaza-
khstan's vast energy resources. But that
balancing act has been in doubt since Rus-
sia's invasion of Georgia in August, which
threatened to close off the corridor for
pipelines around Russia. In the interview en

route to Astana, Rice disclosed that Deputy
Secretary of State John Negroponte was in
Iraq over the weekend for talks with the
Iraqi government on planning for the tran-
sition as more U.S. forces withdraw and
Iraqis take on more responsibilities.

The discussions also covered the remain-
ing obstacles to a security agreement that
would govern the U.S. military presence in
Iraq beyond December, when the current
legal authorities expire, Rice said. Negoti-
ations "are going along" and are close to
being finished, she added.

"We are close, but as you might i imag-
ine, because it's an important and difficult
agreement when you're trying to work out
arrangements that are both going to protect
our people and be. responsive to Iraqi sev-
ereignty, that just takes time,"-she said.

Rice said Negroponte was "not doing
anything particularly about it" on this visit
beyond talking with Iraqi leaders. Her char-
acterization of his role did not seem to indi-
cate he was in Iraq to finalize a deal.

New car
sales down
some 29 per
cent year-
on-year

@ By NEIL HARTNELL
Tribune Business Editor

NEW car sales in the
Bahamas were down almost 25
per cent for the first eight
months in 2008, Tribune Busi-
ness was told, the decline having
increased as the year has pro-
gressed with a 40 per cent fall-
off in August.

That month, according to
data gathered by the Bahamas
Motor Dealers Association
(BMDA), new car sales
dropped from 315 in August
2007 to 189 this year. Apart
from January, every month this
year has seen a year-on-year
decline in new car sales, Tri-
bune Business having previous-
ly reported that sales were
down by 43 per cent and 29 per
cent for May and June respec-
tively.’

The new car sales drop pro-
vides further evidence of the
deteriorating economic situa-
tion facing many Bahamians, as
they are among the big-ticket,
high-priced items that are first
to feel the pinch from any
reduction in consumer spend-
ing and confidence.

Rick Lowe, operations man-

- ager at Nassau Motor Company

(NMC), told Tribune Business
that he felt a major factor
behind the decline in new car
sales was the tighter lending cri-
teria imposed by many com-
mercial banks, which had made
it more difficult for consumers
to obtain loans and finance pur-
chases.

Mr Lowe said he based this
observation on the fact that
Nassau Motor Company was
still receiving numerous cus-
tomers who were walking the
showroom and lot floors, look-
ing at and testing new cars.

“From our perspective, we
still have floor traffic,” Mr Lowe
told Tribune Business. “In June,
we had cumulative visits from
117 people, and in July we had
cumulative visits from 170 peo-
ple.

“People are not able to get
loans, it seems. That’s definite-
ly had an impact. People leave
fully expecting to get the loans,
and don’t have any luck. It
takes a week to 10 days for a
purchase to go through, even if
approved.”

Mr Lowe attributed the
industry’s woes to a slowing

revenues
behind prior
year by ‘little
more than

@ By NEIL HARTNELL
Business Editor

GOVERNMENT rev-
enues are lagging behind pri-
or year comparatives “by a
little more than $11-million”,
the minister of state for
finance told Tribune Busi-
ness, although this position
had remained stable since
July.

Zhivargo Laing said: “To
date, revenue has been
behind last year by a little
more than $11 million, but
that entire $11 million was
seen in the month of July.

“Since then, for each
month since July, revenue
has been on par with last
year. There has been no
movement in that shortfall
since July. Naturally, rev-
enues are behind forecast,
but they are behind in a way
that we saw in the previous
year.”

Mr Laing said it was
impossible to say whether
the existing revenue short-
fall would remain, get worse
or be eliminated by the end
of the 2008-2009 fiscal year
on June 30, 2009.

serving clients in the Bahamas.
We opened our first office in-
Abaco exactly 20 years ago, so
it is fitting that today we are
relocating our main Abaco
branch to a new and grander
facility. We are proud to have
become a fixture in this com-
munity and to continue serving
clients in this vital community."

Ross McDonald, head of
Caribbean Banking for Royal

"RBC's recent acquisition of
RBTT makes RBC Royal Bank
of Canada one of the largest
financial institutions in the
Caribbean. But more than size,
our goal is to be number one in
client service and satisfaction.
As part of this community, we
will continue to invest in and

people who live and work
here."

Cheques were presented to

‘two organizations in Abaco.

The first donation was made to
Every Child Counts, the Abaco-

EPA not ‘unique’ as

Tribune Business

Reporter

THE proposed Economic
Partnership Agreement
between the European Union
(EPA) and the CARIFORUM
countries is not the first of its
kind to focus on reciprocity or
have a services-based compo-
nent.

Carl Greenridge, deputy
senior director-general of the
Caribbean Regional Negotiat-
ing Machinery (CRNM), told
persons,attending the Bahamas
Chamber of Commerce’s glob-
alization conference last week
that while there was a lot of
debate about the reciprocity
component in the agreement,
the EPA was not the only trade
deal to include that or a ser-
vices offer.

He pointed out that it was
always important to sign trade
agreements, and: this is some-
thing the Caribbean has to get
used to, with the World Trade
Organisation (WTO) anticipat-
ing that there will be 400 future
free trade agreements.

As far as services is con-
cerned, Mr _ Greenridge
explained that all countries in

Wea 3

the Caribbean are dependent
on services, which is really all
they have to offer for trade.

During a panel discussion,
attorney Brian Moree, who has
been an opponent of the EPA,
noted that while one may argue
about whether the EPA will be
good for the Bahamas, it cannot
be denied that it will bring sig-
nificant change.

It is understood they are -

possible opportunity, especially

_ since it was obtained at a hear-

ing where they were not pre-
sent.

In addition, Tribune Business
understands that Mr Olsen’s
side is alleging that responsibil-
ity for any loan repayment
default lies squarely with Mi
Gonzalez. They are claiming

that he failed to live up to sev- ,

eral obligations, one of which
was to provide New Hope
Holdings with $12 million in
working capital - over and
above the initial purchase price
- to fund its operations.

This, Mr Olsen is alleging,
never happened, and without

.that capital New Hope ended

up defaulting. Essentially, the
core allegation in their argu-
ments rests on the claim that
any responsibility for the loan
default lies with Mr Gonzalez
himself.

Tribune Business also under-
stands that another issue in dis-

pute is whether Mr Gonzalez

was ever a shareholder in New
Hope and the Grand Bahama
projects. Mr Gonzalez and his
team are arguing that he never
was, while Mr Olsen’s attorneys
are alleging just the opposite.

The legal dispute, which has
the potential to run for many
months, risks inflicting further
damage on Grand Bahamia’s
already battered economy. It
has yet to recover from the 2004
hurricane season and subse-
quent Royal Oasis closure, plus
the internal ownership feud at
the Grand Bahama Port
Authority (GBPA).

That continuing battle,;cou-
pled with the fall-out:fromsthe
global credit crunch and €So-
nomic downturn, has negative-
ly impacted proposed projects
for Grand Bahama, such as
Morgan Stanley’s Barbary
Beach development, the Raven

These littered plastic bags are an
eyesore and send a poor message to
visitors about The Bahamas. However,
these bags not only mar the beauty

from the latest Wall Street melt-
down, meaning that the battle
over New Hope Holdings’
assets, which could possibly tie

them up for, some time, is the .

last thing Freeport and Grand
Bahama need just now.

Any receivership would seek
.o protect and preserve New
Hope Holdings’ assets until the
court rules on which party is
correct, but the situation would
undoubtedly unsettle staff and
the marinas’ customers and oth-
er creditors.

It would also stymie — at least
for the moment — the plans Mr
Olsen and New Hope Holdings
had to develop their Freeport
properties through construction
of facilities such as condo hotels.

New Hope Holdings and Mr
Olsen acquired the 115-slip Port
Lucaya Marina in August, 2006,
amid much fanfare, with a sign-
ing ceremony that was attended
by then Prime Minister Perry
Christie and senior. Grand
Bahama Port Authority
(GBPA) executives.

Together with the Grand
Bahama Yacht Club and other
associated facilities, the Port
Lucaya Marina was, according
to press releases issued at the
time, intended to be the center-

piece of a $500 million, 70-acre-

‘in our oceans.

That project was slated to
include 300 yacht slips and 300
new waterfront condos, town-
houses and private residences,
with New Hope Holdings also
intended to dredge the Bell .
Channel to 13 feet in depth to
accommodate the latest class of
mega yachts.

Yet the litigation is likely to
set this project back by months,
if not years.

Mr Olsen and New Hope
Holdings purchased the Port
Lucaya Marina from fellow
investor Erik Christiansen, the
latter now having been appoint-
ed Port Group Ltd chair.
Sources suggested the initial
purchase price was around $26
million, but Mr Christiansen lat-
er dropped this to around $22
million.

and New Hope Holdings had .

and Port Group Ltd to acquire

However, no progress was
made and these negotiations

Hotels industry
‘very concerned’

@ By CARA BRENNEN-
BETHE
Tribune Business
Reporter

THE Bahamas Hotel Asso-
ciation (BHA) has moved from
being ‘cautiously optimistic’ to
being ‘very concerned’ about
the ability of its members to sur-
vive the current economic cli-
mate, its president saying it feels
it has at least another six to nine
months before things look bet-
ter.

In an interview following the
opening ceremony of BHA’s
trade show and expo, Russell
Miller said: “No sense trying to
sugar coat it or paint a picture
that is not realistic - these are
tough times. Some people may
not get through these times. We
hope it will not get to that, but
these are difficult times.”

Mr Miller said the BHA was
particularly concerned about
the smaller Bahamian hotels,
who were challenged by oper-
ating costs and limited
resources.

With many properties decid-
ing to limit work weeks or

Yer endy ie

reduce staff, Mr Miller said that
they are being urged to embrace
creativity and marketing initia-
tives to make things better.

“It’s the reality of the busi-
ness. We try to educate our peo-
ple for times that are coming
that will not be as productive. In
a lot of situations they go back
to the classroom and improve
on services and training, so that
when the economy is more
encouraging, they are ready,”
Mr Miller said.

“It is a difficult time and the
unfortunate thing is that it is
affecting everyone in a global
sense. It is across the board, and
I think the way we get through
this is the service we offer.”

Mr Miller said people will
continue to travel, even if not in
the numbers they did before,
and good service will bring
them back.

“We’ve got to continue to”

work with the Ministry of
Tourism, but this will probably
take us at least six to nine
months to get over this. We will
get through it,” he added.
Speaking about the Trade
Show, Mr Miller said it provid-

“Despite what may be

“You face this from time to
time,” he explained. “I per-
sonally wish I had a crystal
ball. We’re on four and five
month order cycles, and when
the money supply slows, four
and five months of vehicles
coming in puts a lot of stress
on people. It’s not turning
over like it was.”

The future sales outlook for
the Bahamian auto dealer
industry was “not looking too
sprightly” for the remainder
of 2008, Mr Lowe said, point-
ing out that almost two sales
weeks were lost in September
due to Hurricane Ike and oth-
er storms that “shut down”
much commercial activity.

“Everyone seems to be
preparing for a long, hard win-

. ter,” Mr Lowe told Tribune

Business. “But we’ve been
through it before, and will get’

through it again. I don’t want .

the pessimism to take over our
lives.”

He agreed that new cars
were “big ticket items” and
among the first products to
feel the recessionary chill, but
pointed out that ‘in the

Bahamian context “it’s a’

necessity, because we don’t
have public transport like in
other countries. So people
depend on their cars”.

There is also likely to have
been a shift away from new
cars to used cars, which are
relatively cheaper for hard-
pressed consumers and seen
as giving greater value for
money.

Yet Mr Lowe did not feel
that increased competition
from the used car market was
having a major impact on new
car sales, describing the two
markets as “completely dif-
ferent”.

He added that used cars had
a shorter life expectancy, hav-
ing already been driven for a
number of years, and also
caused greater pollution.

said.

He explained that Gencom
intends to pursue every option
to find financing, and in partic-
ular is looking at several Cana-
dian and British banks.

“We are talking to some

Canadian and British banks.
Some of these have purchased
other banks. Barclays‘just
bought out some parts of
Lehman, so there are conver-
sations happening across the
board. We are looking at every
possible option,” Mr Miller
added.
* While Mr Miller said it was
unclear how long. securing the
necessary financing will take,
or how long the Ritz-Carlton
Rose Island development will
be affected, Gencom will con-
tinue with the first phase of the
project.

“We will continue with the
work we are doing on Rose
Island, which is with the marina.
That is huge and was the right
thing for us to do at the first
stage of the project. It adds at
least a $ 40-50 million price tag:
to the project and we will con-
tinue to do it,” Mr Miller said.

revenues behind

FROM page 1B

the Government’s finances as
it is traditionally the period
when some 60 per cent or more
of revenues are collected, coin-
ciding with the tourism sector
peak in the first quarter.

Adding that government
spending was “within limits”
and the administration did not
“have any concerns” on this
issue, Mr Laing said: “What we
are trying to do is move forward
with the infrastructure projects
of government, so we are try-
ing to accelerate capital spend-
ing.”

With government spending
accounting for a significant per-
centage of the Bahamian econ-
omy’s annual gross domestic
product (GDP), the Govern-
ment has to move quickly to
cushion the blow to tourism and
other industries from the US
downturn and global credit
crunch.

Among the key projects are
the $450 million Lynden Pin-
dling International Airport
(LPIA) pee eaa $131

million New Providence Road
Improvement Project; govern-
‘ment housing project, which is
being financed from $75 million
worth of Bahamas Mortgage
Corporation bonds; and the
construction of government
office complexes.

Represent

“They would represent a
means of providing some addi-
tional injection into the econo-
my at a time when things are
slowing, so we intend to move
those projects along,” Mr Laing
said.

“They provide prospects for
construction jobs, which in turn
provide for a great deal of mon-
ey to flow to various parts of
the economy.”

Mr Laing said a key indicator
of how the Bahamas, and in
particular its tourism/hotel
industry, had been impacted by
the latest Wall Street meltdown
and subsequent $700 billion
‘bailout’ package would “ with-
out question” be the occupancy
and room rate numbers

VACANCY
FOR A GENERAL MANAGER

achieved during the ‘Phanksgiv
ing and Christmas holiday peti-
ods.

Asked whether the Govern-
ment agreed with the Central
Bank of the Bahamas’ assess
ment that revenue collections
were likely to be negatively
impacted by global events and a
Bahamian economic downturn,
Mr Laing replied: “For the
moment, we’re just maintain
ing vigilance in respect of our
performance. We're constantly
reviewing what is happening
with revenue trends.

“At the moment, we don’t
have any major concerns, but
we’re watchful. It’s safe to say
that in quarter one of next year,
we will certainly have a better

idea of what the outlook will be

for the next 12 months.”

In an economic downturn,
there is generally less spending
by businesses and consumers
on imported goods. This, in
turn, generally leads to a reduc
tion in revenue for the Govern-
ment, as some 60 per cent of its
revenues are obtained from
duties imposed on imports.

Yet Mr Laing said it was
“hard to tell” what the precise
impact of the $700 billion
‘bailout’ package would be for
the US financial system, wider
economy and the consumer.
and whether thus might encour
age persons to travel again.

He pointed out that its effects
would start to be felt in the
fourth quarter, in the run up to
the Christmas shopping season
and peak travel period for
Americans.

tion. We still expect ICB to turn
a profit at the end of the year,
but it will not be as good as last
year.”

ICB has become particularly
important to BISX-listed J.S.
Johnson’s financial perfor-
mance, boosting the latter’s
profits still further in years
when it is not impacted by hur-
ricane-related claims and pay-
outs.

For the 2008 first half ICB
has again played a key role,
helping to minimize the impact
of a 31 per cent reduction in
net income at J.S. Johnson’s
core agency and brokerage
business with a 6 per cent prof-
its rise of its own. +

While the agency and bro-
kerage business saw net income
fall year-over-year to $2.252
million, compared to $3.22 mil-
lion in 2007, ICB’s profits rose
from $1.221 million to $1.303
million.

“With the economy the way it
is, | guess there’s no surprise
that income is under some pres-
sure,” Mr Bethell told Tribune
Business. “The impact was a lit-
tle bit more than we had antic-
ipated at that time of the year.”

He added that J.S. Johnson
was optimistic that it could
“reverse” some of the year-on-
year net income decline during
the third quarter, the fallout
from the latest Wall Street
financial collapse was likely to
have put paid to any hopes of
catching up to 2007’s full-year



performance in the fourth quar-
ter.

Mr Bethell said J.S. Johnson’s
agency and brokerage business
had been impacted by both a
reduction in new business
inquiries and a slowdown in
premium renewals as a result
of the deteriorating Bahamian
economy.

“If you go by what we’ve
heard in relation to’ new car
sales, most auto dealers are
reporting that sales are down

and many people are unable to |

afford new cars as much as they
have been in the past,” he
explained. “Although numbers
are not dropping significantly,
premiums will drop” because it
costs less to insure a used car
than a new model that is more
expensive.

“Percentage wise, I can’t say _

what the drop in new business
inquiries might be, but the num-
bers are not significant,” Mr
Bethell said. “The actual dollar
value is” as a result of the old
for new car substitution effect.
And catastrophe insurance pre-
miums for property had also
reduced year-on-year.

“People are renewing more
slowly than they did in the
past,” Mr Bethell said. ““They’re
not refusing to insure, but
instead of coming in within five
days of the renewal coming due,
they’re coming in within a
month. They’re waiting a little
longer until they have the cash
to pay.”

Although J.S. Johnson had
not measured the slowdown in
existing business renewals, Mr
Bethell said that “off hand”, it
was at least 10 per cent of poli-

cies that had been impacted. |

“We know what the problem:
is, and in most cases, when we!
talk to the client, it’s not that

‘they don’t intend to renew or

moved the business. They
intend to renew, and will come
in when the cash is available,”
he added.

Other insurance companies
were being impacted in a similar
way, Mr Bethell said. He added:
“Banks have noticed a lot of
clients are not renewing [insur-
ance] on a timely basis, and the

loss payee will not always step

in to pay the premium on behalf
of the client.”

This meant a number of
Bahamians were placing them-
selves at risk of losing home and
auto assets by not renewing
their insurance on a timely
basis. ;

Mr Bethell said underinsuring
was also becoming a significant
issue, as Bahamians unable to
afford premiums in line with
their home’s replacement val-
ue were either not insuring or
paying for less coverage than
required.

“That’s been a problem for a
number of years since rates
have escalated as a result of the
hurricanes,” Mr Bethell said of
underinsuring. “That’s another
of the big problems we and oth-
ers have.

“Clients cannot afford to
increase the sums insured in line
with inflation. They may have
bought a house for $200,000 and

aid a premium to cover a

250,000 replacement value, but
with construction costs increas-
ing to replace that house now
costs $300,000. In many cases,
clients are inclined to reduce.”

For the 2008 first half, J.S.
Johnson saw total revenues
remain relatively flat:at-$13.339)
million, dropping just 2 per cent
year-on-year from $13.497 mil-
lion. ICB’s net earned premi-'
ums actually increased by 5 per
cent to $4.653 million, with fees
and commissions —earned large-
ly by the agency and brokerage
business — also up narrowly at:
$8.045 million. Other income,

, though, fell from $1.065 million

in 2007 to $641,000 this time
around.

Total expenses, though, rose
by 8 per cent to $9.785 million,
due to increases in both staff
costs and insurance expenses.
“Generally, we give salary
increases on an annual basis,”
Mr Bethell explained, “and as
we’ve expanded we have to
beef up staff to deal with the
additional workload and give
the level of service required.”

He pointed out that if rev-
enues “had increased the way
they would have done for the ©
last couple of years”, the
increase in expenses would not
have been as noticeable.

“We've had several good
years in a row, and it’s difficult
to keep topping that,” Mr
Bethell said. “If the current eco-
nomic climate allows, it would
certainly be good to have close
to [last year’s figures]. We’re
not expecting growth like that at
this time. We have to hope for
the best and ride out the
storm.”

Gay elders’
listinctive
challenges
get closer
look

@ By DAVID CRARY
AP National Writer

NEW YORK (AP) — Frank
Carter was once a globe-trot-
ting professional dancer; his
world is smaller now. He bat-
tles multiple health problems,
walks with a cane and rarely
leaves his compact Manhattan
apartment.

As an 86-year-old gay man,
with no family nearby and many
acquaintances long since dead,
he’d seem a likely prospect for
isolation.

Instead, he has kindled a
deep, five-year friendship with
Gigi Stoll, a fashion model-
turned-photographer half his
age. Stoll helps Carter with
medical arrangements, writes
to him when she travels over-
seas, and sat with him for six
hours during his most recent
hospitalization.

“The other guys in the hospi-
tal, no one was coming in to see
them,” Carter said. “To get that
gift, you have to be lucky.”

It’s not just luck. Stoll came
into his life though a program
that matches infirm gays and
lesbians with volunteers who
commit to making weekly visits.

Long overlooked by society
at large, and even by younger
gays, elderly gays and lesbians
are emerging as distinct com-
munity, getting more help and
attention as they confront chal-
lenges that differ in many ways
from their heterosexual coun-

terparts.

’ Advocacy groups say the esti-
mated 2.5 million gay seniors in

‘ America are twice as likely to
live alone, four times less likely
to have adult children to help
them, and far more fearful of
discrimination from health care
workers.

Many fear anti-gay animosity
or bias at senior centers, in nurs-
ing homes and from health care
providers. Some gay elders even
keep their sexual orientation
secret from the home health
aides who may provide their
only sustained company.

A watershed moment comes
this month, when-the AARP —
the largest advocacy group for

Americans over 50 — for the °

first time sponsors a major
national conference focused on
gay and lesbian aging. It’s being
organized by SAGE (Service
and Advocacy for GLBT
Elders), the New York-based
organization which counts
Carter and Stoll among its thou-
sands of clients and volunteers.

AARP’s involvement is “a
big breakthrough,” SAGE exec-
utive director Michael Adams
said. “To step forward and
sponsor a conference of this
high profile and splash your
name all over, it’s a quantum
leap.”

There will be workshops on a
whole array of issues: mental
health care and suicide preven-
tion, transgender seniors, rising
levels of HIV/AIDS among gay
men over 50, and special chal-
lenges facing elderly gays in
suburbs and small towns.

“There are very particular
areas that make us a more vul-
nerable constituency of old peo-
ple,” said Amber Hollibaugh,
62, an expert on aging with the
National Gay and Lesbian Task
Force.

“We tend to age alone, with
no one to call on in times of
need,” she said. “We don’t have
a daughter to move in with us
— we don't have a kid to call
when we're admitted to the hos-
pital because we fall and break
a hip.”

Yet some of the somber
dynamics are beginning to
change. Today’s gay elderly do
face unique problems — but
they also remember the bad old
days in the closet,and many cel-
ebrate the joys of gay life in the
2|st century.

@ By ERIC TUCKER
Associated Press Writer

NORTH KINGSTOWN,
R.I. (AP) — Ann Burke saw
signs of trouble with her daugh-
ter’s boyfriend.

He’d incessantly call her at
night, keep her from her fami-
ly, and, ultimately, physically
abuse her during a tumultuous
relationship that ended with
her death three years ago.

Burke’s 23-year-old daugh-
ter, Lindsay, may not have
understood the dynamics of an
abusive relationship, but her
death is helping to ensure that
other young people do.

Beginning with this school
year, a new law called the Lind-
say Ann Burke Act requites
all public middle and high
schools in Rhode Island to
teach students about dating
violence in their health classes.

The initiative was spear-
headed by Burke and her hus-
band, Chris, who say schools
should be obligated to teach
teens the warning signs of abu-
sive relationships and broach
the subject head-on so victims
feel empowered to get help and
leave violent partners.

“If this could happen to her,
this could happen to anyone,”
said Ann Burke, a health
teacher who runs a memorial
fund to raise money for dating
violence workshops for parents
and educators.

One other state, Texas, man-
dates unspecified awareness
education on dating violence
for students and parents, while
several other states encourage
it. But the Rhode Island mea-
sure goes further by requiring
the topic be incorporated annu-
ally into the curriculum for stu-
dents in seventh through 12th
grade.

Burke says such education
would have allowed her daugh-
ter to recognize the danger in
her relationship earlier.
Though her daughter left her
boyfriend several times, she
didn’t change her phone num-
ber or have a plan for safely
cutting off contact for good.

She also believed she could
be friends with her boyfriend if
the romance ended.

“T said, ‘No, he said that to
you before, Lindsay. You can’t
just be friends,”’ Burke
recalled. '

Rhode Island Attorney Gen-
eral Patrick Lynch, who shep-
herded the proposal through
the legislature last year, said
domestic violence is a dis-
turbingly common crime, yet
education about it is scarce and
haphazard.

“You teach sex ed, you teach
‘don’t do drugs,’ you teach

‘don’t drink,’ you should also
be teaching ‘don’t be a victim
of domestic violence,” said
Lynch, whose office receives
about 5,000 cases a year.

The law is gaining traction
around the country, with mem-
bers of the National Associa-
tion of Attorneys General
unanimously adopting a reso-
lution encouraging the educa-
tion in their states. Nebraska’s
top prosecutor said he intends
to submit legislation modeled
after Rhode Island’s law, and
apparel maker Liz Claiborne
Inc. has helped promote it
around the country.

The education focuses as
much on nurturing good rela-
tionships as avoiding abusive
ones.

In a recent sophomore
health class at South
Kingstown High School,
teacher Karen Murphy
reviewed communication skills
for friendships and romantic
relationships, including wait-
ing until you’re calm before
confronting someone with a
problem and openly express-
ing your feelings.

“You've just found out that
somebody spread a rumor
about you and you approach
them at their locker,” Murphy
told the class. “Are you going
to want to start talking to her
when you're extremely angry
after you’ve just found out
about it?”

“No,” the class replied in
unison. ;

Alex Butler, a 15-year-old
sophomore, said he didn’t
think dating violence was a
problem at his school but that
the education has helped him
identify stages of abusive rela-
tionships.

“It’s nice ‘cause then you can
warn other people even if you
don’t know them,” he said.

Even if the lessons seem
obvious, teachers hope stu-
dents will recognize that some
behaviors they may tolerate in
their relationships — obsessive
text messaging, for instance, or
physical control — are unac-
ceptable and possible precur-
sors to violence.

Ann Burke said Lindsay fell
hard for Gerardo Martinez
after meeting him at a wedding,
and though he seemed respect-
ful and nice, problems emerged
after Martinez began exerting
control over her daughter.

Ann Burke became so dis-
traught that she couldn’t sleep
and she sought the advice of
counselors. Fearing the worst,
she even told Lindsay she
couldn’t bear to live without
her.

One day in September 2005,

Readers have

their say on

‘Sarah Mania’
insight

Re: Sarah Mania
(Sarah Palin)

I THOUGHT your mean-
spirited, one-sided diatribe on
Sarah Palin was disgusting.

You clearly have no interest

in an article by someone who
actually knows Governor
Palin -
http://churchformen.blogspot.
com/ - but I’m hoping you
may grudgingly reprint the
final paragraph:

“So, is she ready to lead the
free world? I have no doubt
Sarah Palin would be a tough-
as-nails negotiator during any
political crisis. She’s stood up
to corruption in her own par-
ty. She’s stared down Exxon
and won. Heck, she even got
me to lower my production
rates! I see in her the grit,
resolve and complete lack of
political pretence that brought
Teddy Roosevelt to power a
century ago. I think she’s
ready to.be Vice-President,
and will be prepared to
assume the Oval Office if the
need arises”.

— Ronald Lightbourn

An interesting Sarah Palin
article in Monday’s Tribune -
here’s more info for your arse-
nal (article enclosed). Any
chance you can write a com-
prehensive account on the
effects of illegal immigration
in the Bahamas or an in-depth
expose concerning why the
Bahamian educational system
has failed?

— INSIGHT Friend

Interesting that you suggest
that the selection of Sarah
Palin is a cynical act of voter
manipulation.

Does that mean you think
that the McCain/Palin team
may win the election and that
disappoints you?

Calling all Americans insu-
lar and unlikely to know
where Alaska is akin to using
the “N” word in polite compa-
ny. That kind of intellectual
snobbery is why socialist/liber-
als will never win at the ballot
box in America. (But if they
do, they will be tossed out
very soon thereafter).

Serving in Vietnam does not
a hero make. Kerry’s com-
rades believed him to be a liar
and said so. Many agreed with
the Swift Boaters and note
that he still has not provided
his Navy discharge papers or
his medical records. However,
he did admit to lying about his
comrades raping, mutilating,
and otherwise abusing inno-
cents. Oliver Stone has yet to
do the same, hence the ongo-
ing misinformation.

They say that everyone ina
“foxhole” is a believer. Your
lack of understanding and dis-
respect for Christianity iS
obvious. However, most
Christians would pray for your
forgiveness. Even those who
speak in tongues and perhaps
handle snakes would treat you
better than you treat Mrs

- Palin, despite your ugly

rhetoric. I'd let you play with
some of our local reptiles any-
time.

Finally, you should prepare
yourself for the fact that most
people in the United States
simply don’t agree with you
and it is likely that Palin and
McCain will win the next elec-
tion.

You have every right to
your opinion and I encourage
you to keep it up. This will
ensure a Republican
victory. Thanks in advance.

FEEDBACK

of the United States; and once
again I find myself compelled
to comment.

Frankly, “Sara Mania”
reads like a defence attorney’s
opening or closing statement
where the objective is to get
the best plea bargain possible
or to convince that one juror
who will produce an impasse
in the jury’s deliberations.

‘So, the true facts are often
obscured or distorted because
in these circumstances “the
ends justify the means”.

It also reads like many of
the current statements of both
presidential contenders in the
US election. They are in the
sprint to the finish where once
again “the end justifies the
means”; the facts are distorted
with the hope that the unde-
cided will respond favourably.

With that in mind let’s turn
to “Sarah Mania” wherein you
state -

Sara Palin is a good-looker
with sex-appeal but is superfi-
cial and without substance, a
glamour-puss, a slick talker
from the Alaskan tundra, a
hockey-mum with a primeval
mindset, an insult to America
and the free world. And
“Sara’s Supporters are, thou-
sands of ‘Wal-Mart Women’,
groupies without working
brains engaging in infantile
adulation.”

Then you generalise even
further. You contend that it is
no accident that women have
never been left in charge of
world affairs during the entire
history of mankind. Of course,

_ you overlook Margaret

Thatcher and Golda Mier.

To me these statements are
a sexist diatribe and not a fact-
orientated argument. They are
superficial, intellectually arro-
gant and condescending.

They also are a “holding
action”. In “Sarah Mania” you
speculate about the Palin fam-
ily’s problems, problems simi-
lar to those faced by all fami-
lies in today’s world. You hold
out great hope that those now
sweeping the Alaskan tundra,
the National Enquirer, et al,
will discover enough damning
evidence (facts, near facts and
speculation) so that a success-
ful “swift boat campaign” can
‘-be mounted against the
McCain-Palin ticket in late
October.

The second very clear prob-
lem with “Sarah Mania” is
Governor Palin’s Christian
beliefs as seen in how she lives
her life. These beliefs do not
conform to the social progres-
sive stereotype embraced by
the left and the far-left.

One should remember that
in 1960 the big question was
“Can we trust John F
Kennedy, a practising Roman
Catholic, to be President?”
Unfortunately, his time in
office lasted only two years.
Nevertheless, no-one now
believes that in the affairs of
state he would have placed
the interests of Rome, what-
ever that may be, above the
interests of his country.

Yes, Governor Palin was a
relative unknown among the
nation’s governors and hope-
fully we will know more about
her after the upcoming
debates and a more compre-
hensive exposure to the press.

The bottom line is that
“Sarah Mania” is less like a
reasoned discourse and more
like attack journalism. It con-
tains the speculation and innu-
endo of one making a case
without all the facts being
known. Your readers deserve
a more balanced discourse.

— Ralph J Massey

WHEN [read your first
hostile piece on Sarah Palin, |
thought you had gone over
the top on too little evidence.
When I read the second
broadside on the “hockey



san



mom”, I thought: “This guy is
being unfair.”

Did you know something
we didn’t? Palin’s interview
with Katie Couric was so
embarrassing, I had to go out
and make a coffee. The
woman is coming apart at the
joints. She is way out of her
league.

The Republicans gave us a
“know nothing” president for
eight years, now they want us
to swallow a “know nothing”
vice-president.

—JPO Lowe

I FAVOURED John
McCain over Barack Obama
until he picked Sarah Palin as
his running mate. If he can
make such a ridiculous deci-
sion while under little or no
pressure, what kind of pig’s
ear will he make of the really
big decisions he would have to
take as president? In my opin-
ion, this race is over. It’s Oba-
ma-Biden for The White
House.

— James Robertson

PALIN is a big-mouthed
political novice with the intel-
lectual grasp of a foodstore

., check-out girl. The fact that

America should even be con-
sidering such a person for the
vice-presidency says much
about that country’s current
state.

— Obama Man

IF I were looking for a pres-
ident with a good pair of legs,
then I’d.vote for Sarah Palin.

— TM, Nassau

Another mindless liberal
opinion, so universally perpet-
uated by the pseudo-intellec-
tual and factually barren jour-
nalists amongst us. An opin-
ion which is based upon half-
truths, lies, sexism, religious
intolerance and the internet's
loony blog sites twisted inven-
tions. All intertwined with an
existing individual bias and.
liberally sprinkled with imma-
ture personal insults usually
heard in a schoolyard. An
interesting example of the
mind’s struggle to achieve
rational conclusions from irra-
tional thoughts.

Perhaps in future articles we
can look forward to you inves-
tigating and addressing less
prejudiced and more immedi-
ate, relevant issues, such as
why BEC is continuously
being allowed to rip-off the
public.

HAVING watched the
Palin-Biden debate, I'd sum
up as follows:

Biden - informed, courte-
ous, in control of his material,
focused and fully capable of
answering the questions being
asked.

Palin - coached, off-topic
when faced with a question
she couldn’t answer, careful
not to mention God, short on
substance, a deficiency she
tried to overcome by winking
at the camera and loading on
the feminine charm.

Judged on the basis that this
was about the future of the
USA, and not a morning TV
quiz show, there is no doubt
that Biden won hands-down.

Palin gave the kind of
answers you might expect
from any moderately
informed middle-class mom
who has been told to keep
talking at all costs because
silence suggests ignorance.

On several occasions she
brushed aside the question at
hand and launched into anoth-
er presentation of her record
as Alaska’s governor.

ee ae ere
Solomon’s wisdom: Eloquent

INSIGHT

MP was ‘a reporter’s dream’

FROM page 16

As a businessman, Solomon
owned Mademoiselle on Bay
Street and the Wendy’s fast
food franchise, as well as retain-
ing ownership of Ardastra Gar-
dens Zoo until his death.

He also imported Fashion
Fair beauty products for black
women, displaying a sensitive
side of himself that always
found favour with the fair sex.

“He was a very emotional
man,” said a friend, “you got
the impression that his feelings
were always close to the sur-
face. In his younger days, he
enjoyed ladies’ company and
they enjoyed his.”

Inevitably, Solomon - a kind
of political hybrid - found him-
self at the centre of the turmoil
which followed the disintegra-
tion of the UBP in the early
1970s.

He was initially drawn to the
new Free National Movement,
but fell out with leader Cecil

guage that reflected a keen and
incisive mind.

Former Tribune news editor
Athena Damianos described
him as “a reporter’s dream”
who always responded with
intelligent comments.

“It was a joy to interview
him,” she told INSIGHT, “You
will not see that calibre of per-
son again. In terms of debating
skills, the only others in the
same class were Lynden Pin-
dling, Arthur Foulkes and
Orville Turnquest.

“Politically, he was a maver-
ick. He bucked the UBP. Intel-
lectually, he was above the rest
and he was not afraid to speak
his mind.”

Doubt

She said he was “without a
doubt one of the most accom-
plished politicians of his time.
His quick wit and prowess on
the floor of the House, coupled
with his investigative skills as a

less promoter of tourism. As a
zoo owner, he visited the ani-
mals in his care daily, knowing
every creature by name.

As owner of a fashion house,
department store and food
chain, he was never less than a
businessman with flair and judg-
ment who was ready to take
risks and explore new fields.

In his last few years, however,
illness slowed him down. He
was 78 when he passed away at
a Florida hospital after a gru-
elling battle with Parkinson’s
disease and cancer.

On a personal note, Norman
Solomon first earned my affec-
tion and regard in the late 1960s
when he wrote pleasant things
about me in his column.

As I was the target of much
political flak at the time (so
what’s changed?) I readily
imbibed any compliment com-
ing my away.

“An enthusiastic amateur,”
he wrote, apparently regarding
himself as such when it came to

The stories behind the news





Solomon’s wisdom
Eloquent MP was ‘a reporter’s dream’
nasi" __ NORMAN SOLOMON’S death deprives The Bahamas of one
of its most intelligent, courageous and principled politicians -
a man who, though technically a Bay Street Boy, was always
out of step with his parliamentary colleagues and invariably

@ By JOHN MARQUIS
Managing Editor



ven when he
became an MP
for the first time
in 1967, Norman
Solomon was
swimming against the tide. It
was entirely typical of the man.

It was the year when the PLP
came to power and the Bay
Street Boys were consigned to
history.

In the aftermath of what
many caucasians saw as a Cata-
clysmic event, Sir Stafford
Sands - the Mr Big of the Unit-
ed Bahamian Party - made
preparations to leave The
Bahamas forever.

Other wealthy whites began
hedging their bets, making
arrangements to flee to foreign
shores, and even predicting a
headlong plunge into Third
World chaos for the country
they had run for 300 years.

Solomon, a bearded white
man with a talent for persua-
sive oratory, arrived in the halls
of power just as others of his
complexion were on the-way
out.

On the face of it, he had
turned up too late, an aberra-
tion in the modern scheme of
things, a white blip on what was
to become an increasingly black
political class. .

For those who knew him best,
however, the journalist-cum-
businessman with a colourful
turn of phrase was entirely in
tune with the times. He was.a
. progressive who made his par-
liamentary debut in one of the
most progressive years of the
twentieth century when flower
power was at its height and love
not war was the prevailing
theme.

Solomon, with his clipped
beard, flowing locks and ever-
present carnation in his button-
hole, was the hippie of Bahami-
. an politics. He was invariably
at odds with colleagues, and saw
things in a,way that suggested
he was much more switched on
than the dimmer lights around
him.

I can remember exactly how I
felt when the House of Assem-
bly re-convened after that
momentous January 10 election.

Deposed premier Sir Roland
Symonette earned my respect
for breasting his way through a
hostile crowd to take his seat
as leader of the opposition.
Solomon impressed me as the
liberal 1960s face of a party that
was still stuck in the 1930s.

Together, they boldly confront- _

ed the changing times.

To a young man’s eyes in
those days, the United Bahami-
an Party was an entrenched
cabal of reactionary merchants
and lawyers whose interests
rarely extended beyond their
own bank balances.

There was little by way of
intellectual prowess in their
ranks, and social progress was
so far down their list of priori-
ties that it was out of sight.



ahead of his time. INSIGHT reports...

as others of his complexion were on the way out...

Their arrogance was palpa-
ble and their agenda almost
exclusively self-serving. If ever a
group needed uprooting and
tossing on to the bonfire of his-
tory it was them. .

Norman Solomon, however,
was not really one of their kind.
Though born of comfortable
middle-class stock (his influen-
tial family arrived in The
Bahamas in 1799) and destined
to become a wealthy man in his
own right, he always

empathised with those less for-

tunate than himself.

With his casually affable man-

ner, his astute mind and a will-
ingness to say whatever he felt,
he was refreshingly free of the
prejudices and constraints that
seemed to bind the rest of his
party together.

Above all, he was passionate
about The Bahamas and its wel-
fare. He was opposed to all
those who sought to undermine
it. '

“He was a nationalist who
shot from the hip,” a friend told
INSIGHT. “The country always
came first for him. He was a
very liberal and progressive part
of the UBP. He was very left



. NORMAN SOLOMON, a bearded white man with a talent for pastes oratory, arrived in the halls of power just

of centre.”

As a Nassau Guardian
columnist in the 1960s, and a
Tribune contributor into the
1980s, he wrote eloquently and
fearlessly about perceived
wrongs in society, and often
came close to going overboard
legally when his passion got the
better of him.

Once he became involved in

a street protest against Lynden:

Pindling’s administration when
placards were displayed saying:
“The Chief is a Thief.” It was a
claim he tried to repeat in his
column, and he was genuinely

EXECUTE
MOTORS LTD

perplexed when told that such a
defamatory claim could not go
in.

So consumed was he by what
he considered to be the right-
ness of the cause that he failed
to see the dangers of libel, even
though he had long experience
of the press and its ways.

By far his greatest moment
came, however, when the
Colombian drug barons began
openly using the scattered isles
of The Bahamas for cocaine
trans-shipment activities in the
1980s.

Aptly enough, the focus of

these activities became a pic- -

turesque dot of land called Nor-
man’s Cay in the Exumas where
the drug lord Carlos Lehder set
up headquarters for his nefari-
ous trade.

These were the days when
the foreign press was plumbing
the depths of PLP decadence,
exposing Pindling as a leader
willing to trade his country’s
integrity for financial reward.

The headlines “Paradise
Lost” and “Nation for Sale”
were parroted everywhere as
The Bahamas was being depict-
ed with increasing frequency as
a land where common decency
counted for nought.

Pindling, once the darling of

‘the liberal media, had now

become just another Third
World pariah, heading a gov-
ernment that was rampantly
corrupt.

Solomon took considerable
personal risk in investigating
the Norman’s Cay situation for
himself. He actually ran his boat
up close against beaches
manned by shaded, blue-
chinned heavies who wanted to
know what he was doing there.
Swimming ashore, he managed
to establish that a piece of his
beloved homeland was, in fact,
a. bandit hideaway, with vicious
guard dogs on hand to deter the
inquisitive.

It became clear to him that
the nation’s sovereignty was
being crucially undermined
either by government complici-
ty, slackness or both, and that
Pindling was either benefiting
financially from the arrange-
ment, or being dangerously
compliant in his dealings with
international vagabonds.

From that point on, Solomon
was the key figure in the expo-
sure and elimination of drug-

trafficking on a cay which I
recall personally as being a
delightful haven in the early
1970s.

In those days, a single palm-
thatched clubhouse served
freshly caught grouper and
powerful dark rum, just the fare
one yearned for after an uplift-
ing run across the island’s blue-
green shallows in a Boston
Whaler.

By 1978, however, Lehder
and his thugs had moved in, giv-
en carte blanche, it seems, by'a
Bahamas government steeped
in greed and venality. They
stayed for four shameful years
until Solomon rumbled them
and got on their case.

Asa keen nationalist,
Solomon might have been
expected to view Pindling’s
apparent willingness to consort
with Colombian wide-boys as
inexcusable dereliction of duty.

But, though deeply critical at
the time, his attitude towards
the prime’ minister was always
ambiguous. Appalled by some .
aspects of Pindling’s nature, he
seemed to be beguiled by oth-
ers, seeing the PLP leader as
one who, for all his faults,
wrought major political changes
when they were most needed.

Interestingly, Solomon went
out of his way to be at Pindling’s
bedside when the former leader
lay dying at his Skyline Drive
hilltop mansion in August, 2000.

There, he wept openly, saying

his final farewells to a man who,
though a political enemy, was
also his personal friend.

Photographer Franklyn G
Ferguson believes Solomon -
along with businessman Fayne
Solomon and Bobby Symon-
ette, former Speaker of the
House - was among Pindling’s
most trusted white confidants.

“T think Pindling was the kind
of person who understood the
difference between politics and
friendship,” he said. “Those
three, though all UBPs, were
his close friends, with Symon-
ette serving as chairman of the
Hotel Corporation during the
PLP administration.

“Norman Solomon could get
Pindling to do practically any-
thing he wanted him to do, For
some reason, they had this spe-
cial friendship and politics did
not get in the way of it.”

Police to
determine
if victim is
feniale
reported-
missing

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

POLICE expect to find out
tomorrow if the body of a half-
naked girl found in a bush with
what appeared to be a slit throat
is that of a female reported
missing over the weekend.

Officers were alerted by a
passer-by to the body of the girl,
believed to. be aged in her late
teens to varly twenties, lying in
bushes vy a dirt track off
Charles Saunders Highway on
' Saturday.

Appearing to have been in
that position for over 24 hours,
she was wearing only red under-
wear, according to police.

Chief Supt Glenn Miller, offi-
cer in charge of the Central
Detective Unit, confirmed there
were signs that the victim strug-
gled to fight off her killer.

Police now await autopsy
results to confirm the cause of
death. It is too early to say

MP calls for govt to squash
BHA endorsement policy

FORMER Tourism
Minister Obie Wilch-
combe has called on
government to squash
a controversial
Bahamas Hotel Asso-
ciation endorsement
policy — a contract
likened to “extortion”
when first introduced
in 1991.

During his parlia-
mentary contribution
Wednesday, Mr.
Wilchcombe told the

pany’s Welcome
Bahamas book, which
promotes the coun-
try’s twin economic
engines — that of
tourism and the finan-
cial service sector.
The former Cabi-
net Minister also dis-
closed how the BHA

do business with the
50-year-old Bahami-
an company until the
endorsement was

Obie Wilchcombe



told hoteliers not to.

House of Assembly that the
BHA was again asking for an
endorsement, or “a payback of
sorts,” from Etienne Dupuch Jr.
Publications in order to gain a
BHA endorsement for the com-

paid.

In condemning the BHA’s
actions, Mr. Wilchcombe said:
“The Bahamas Hotel Association
is wrong to be doing it and should
not be doing it: They cannot be
doing that because it starts with
Dupuch Publications, then it goes
to the taxi drivers, the vendors, it
goes to all. You can’t do that.”

The former Tourism Minister
added that such.a move by the
BHA infringes on local business-
es’ freedom to trade in The
Bahamas.

The original BHA endorse-
ment policy, first proposed in
1991, required businesses to pay
the BHA a percentage of their

and much more



sales, in order to conduct busi-
ness with its member hotels.

The BHA policy applied to

“all products and services” and

required endorsed businesses to

provide the association with

- audited financial statements,

shareholder and ownership infor-

Man, 23, is in critical

lm By DENISE MAYCOCK

dmaycock@tribunemedia.net

FREEPORT - A 23-year-old man is
in hospital in critical condition following
a shooting in broad daylight at the Pepper
Pot Restaurant on Saturday morning.

Joseph Adrecko Cooper, of Emerald
Drive, Coral Gardens, was shot in the
head during a row with another man at
the popular eatery on East Sunrise High-
way.

He was taken to Rand Memorial Hos-
pital and later airlifted to Princess Mar-
garet Hospital in Nassau for further treat-
ment. Doctors were unable to operate
due to swelling of his brain.

are searching for the suspect, a 29-year-
old resident of Coral Gardens of
Freeport.

According to Chief Supt Basil Rah-
ming, the shooting occurred around
11.52am in the southern parking lot of
the restaurant.

Unconscious

When police arrived at the scene,
Cooper was unconscious, lying on the
ground near the service road in the
Municipal Plaza. He was bleeding from ¢
gunshot wound behind his right ear.

He was transported by EMS personnel
to the trauma section at Rand Memorial
Hospital.

After receiving emergency medical
treatment, Cooper was airlifted to the
Princess Margaret Hospital, where his
condition was described as critical.

This is the third violent incident at the
Pepper Pot Restaurant, where two men
were murdered last month.

On September 12, Jodie Smith was

stabbed to death follcwiug an altercation

with another man.

And, three days before Smith’s stab-
bing, Roland Elidor, 32, of Hanna Hill,
Eight Mile Rock, was shot several times in
the head and back following an argument
at the same location.

According to preliminary investigations

into Saturday’s shooting, a man wearing a
grey hoody jacket walked into the Pepper
Pot and ordered a phone card.

While. he was being served, Cooper
also entered the restaurant and con-
fronted the man about some matter. The
men started arguing and fighting.

Witnesses

_ Supt Rahming said witnesses reported
that the struggle moved to the outside of
the store and into the southern parking
lot, where the man wearing tk > hoody
pulled out a handgun and fired several
shots at Cooper.

The gunman fled the scene or fc t.

Police are investigating the matter. The
Central Detective Unit on Grand

‘Spirit of optimism prevails’ despite
local housing market uncertainty

@ By LLOYD ALLEN
Tribune Staff Reporter



DESPITE increasing uncer-
tainty looming over the local
housing market due to ongo-
ing struggles within the global
arena, a spirit of optimism still
prevails, a leading businessman
has claimed.

Many believe, despite a Cen-
tral Bank advisory for con-
sumers to “exercise prudence
and constraints in their spend-
ing,” that the time is right for
buying homes and property.

Arawak Homes president
Franklyn Wilson said on Fri-
day: “Banks have money for
their mortgages and want to
lend money for mortgages, and
so it is a good time for persons
because the banks are willing to
do so.”

Mr Wilson explained that

He said because of this the
local market, which up to a few
months ago was limited, now
provided a greater variety —
related to price and location —
to prospective buyers.

According to Mr Wilson, the
current real estate environment
is a classic case of ‘a buyer’s
market’.

Similar sentiments were also
relayed by president of the
Bahamas Real Estate Associa-
tion William Wong.

Mr Wong indicated that, in
addition to small-scale proper-
ties re-entering the market,
recent pull-outs by large devel-
opment groups had also con-
tributed significantly to the
resurgence of the real estate
market.

local development groups, had
provided Bahamians with
increased home and commer-
cial property choices.

But even with this new
wealth of options, the question
still remained whether
Bahamians were able to weath-
er this global financial imbal-
ance, in being exposed to the
possibility of foreclosure should
they take on a mortgage.

“Financial institutions see
foreclosure as the last straw,
and that’s not an option that
we use or resort to quickly,”
according to Finco managing
director Tanya McCartney.

She said foreclosure was an
extremely long process, which
involved significant expense,
legal factors, and was frankly
not the first option as far as
banks were concerned.

Because of economic
changes which had been in the
works for the past few years,
challenges had continually
increased for mortgage hold-

ers, but Ms McCartney said _

many banks, including Finco,
had set up various resources to
insure that clients were con-
tacted and offered various
options in an attempt to keep
up with loan payments, and
avoid losing their homes.

“Where possible, we are try-
ing to regularise their mort-
gages perhaps extending terms,
putting them on interest pay-
ments only, really we’re trying
to work out situations.”

Ms McCartney added that,
though market conditions may
give the illusion of a decline in

mortgages, “year over year we |

have seen consistent growth in
our mortgage portfolio, which

includes a lot of young profes-
sionals wishing to get their first
homes.”

However, those who are self-
employed, or work in tourism
or construction-related jobs,
had been affected by changes
within the economy.

According to Ms McCart-
ney, the bottom line was if you
are in the market to buy a
property or home, always make
certain that you have a plan
should your personal or gener-
al economic conditions change.

WHILE the purchasing pow-
er of the Bahamian dollar in
Europe and Asia has decreased
because of a weakened Ameri-

can dollar, one financial expert
says it makes economic sense to
uphold the peg between the two
currencies.

The Bahamian dollar has
been pegged to the American
dollar at parity since the late
1960s after the devaluation of
the pound sterling, to which the
local currency was formerly
linked, according to the Central
Bank. ‘

This means the government
has fixed the rate of currency to
that of the American dollar as
opposed to letting it float in the
currency market subject to the
whims of supply and demand.
This also allows for the US dol-
lar to be exchanged within the
country at a rate of $1 to $1.

The policy has raised a few
concerns that, as the US dollar
falls, the value of the Bahamian
dollar does likewise, underscor-

ing the need for the Bahamian
dollar to detach itself from the
US currency.

But former governor of the
Central Bank of the Bahamas
Julian Francis told The Tribune
that, because North America is
the Bahamas’ main trading part-
ner, it makes long-term sense to
maintain the peg.

Said Mr Francis: “Our dol-

- between US, Bahamian dollar

lar is not linked to the American

dollar. Our dollar is pegged at
the same value as the American
dollar. Our government decides
by policy to fix the value of our
currency...to that of the US.

“The main reason that the
Bahamas government has main-
tained the US dollar and
Bahamian dollar peg for more
than the last 40 years is that the
Bahamas’ principal trading part-
ner is North America.

“So it makes a lot of sense

that the Bahamian dollar is

pegged at a level which is con-
sistent with the American dollar,
because again maybe about 80
per cent of our business is with
North America, including Cana-
da. So I really don’t believe that
in the short term it would make
a lot of sense for us to change
that.

“In other words it’s not just a
policy issue, it is a fundamental
issue - our economies are linked.

Adverts are being stuck on

' The images, showing tsland

While it will be an extra
source of revenue for cash-
strapped airlines and a new pro-

uot all airlines see it as a good
move.

United Airlines and Ameri-
can Airlines have both said they
would never put advertising
anywhere other than in their in-
flight entertainment for fear of a
passenger backlash.

“The only advertising cus-

tomers will see onboard is dur-

US resident banned from casino

ROBERT HALAT, an American resident
of the Bahamas, decided to celebrate his 78th

birthday doing what he loves best — gambling’

in an air-conditioned casino. Air-conditioning is
important to Mr Halat, who suffers from
emphysema and is on oxygen to assist his
breathing.-

Many Bahamians wondered how this frail,
elderly American could get caught up in a judi-
cial system already so overburdened with cases
that persons charged with murder are released
on bail and sent back into the community
because their cases cannot be heard within a
reasonable time.

But here was Bob Halat, an American resi-
dent of Lyford Cay, pleading not guilty to a
charge of gambling as a Bahamian citizen. He
was granted $2,000 bail, a higher bail than that
granted in-many instances for more heinous
offences.

Mr Halat explained that he was not a
Bahamian citizen. “I consider myself a glori-
fied tourist,” he told us.

When he retired 18 years ago, Mr Halat and
his French wife moved to the Bahamas. One
thing that attracted him to the Bahamas was
its casinos. Having lived in the South of France,
he enjoyed the role of the dice.

He told the magistrate that he was not a
Bahamian, that he had lived here for 18 years,
gambled for 18 years, spent millions of dollars in
the years he had been here, was a law-abiding
resident with no right to vote. Because of his
health there was not much he could do, but
enjoy the company of his friends at the casino.
At his age this was a comfortable life, certainly
better than sitting at home in front of the tele-
vision with nothing to do. Because of his health
he sold his boat and could no longer travel. He
had turned to the casino as a social outlet.

As a foreigner, he said, he had no MP to
represent him. He believed the Bahamas should
have an Ombudsman, to whom people like him-
self could go for help and advice.

By law no resident in the Bahamas — resi-
dency and not nationality being the key — can
gamble in the casinos. Mr Halat could not gam-
ble because he was a resident. Fortunately, the
court had charged him incorrectly, and so, when
lawyer Michael Kemp who was in court realised

‘that Mr Halat was without legal representation

he stepped up and got him off on the fact that
the charge was wrong — he was not a gambling
Bahamian.

It all started about a year ago, around April,
said Mr Halat, when a young man who used to
park his car at the casino told him that an Immi-
gration officer had been around looking at his
car’s registration number. Two. months later,
he said, the casino informed him that the Gam-
ing Board had instructed it not to extend him
any more credit. He thought this very strange,




The more he thought about it, the stranger it
all seemed, and so he went back to the casino
and demanded a copy of the Gaming Board
letter. At first the casino declined because oth-
er names were on the list. He asked that their
names be scratched out — “although I knew
who they were anyway,” he laughed. He was
then given a photo copy with the other names
crossed out, but was later given an official letter
from the Gaming Board. He noted that
nowhere in the casino was there a sign warning
residents against gambling.

He sought the advice of an MP who agreed
to “work” on his problem for him. But, soon
afterwards, the MP was transferred to a new
Ministry. However, he had been told that “they
were working on it” and the law would be
changed.

Although during this period he did not gam-
ble, he did go to the casino to sit with his friends
and have lunch. And then it was his 78th birth-
day. He decided to spend it will his friends at the
casino.

While there he made another decision. “If
they are not going to do anything about it, I’m
going to do something,” he decided. “I just had
to put a little pepper in the soup!”

He decided to bet on a game of poker.

And that is when the Gaming Board dropped
the boom.

When the magistrate set the $2,000 bail, she
demanded a surety. Mr Sidney Strachan, who

heads the newly formed Committee for Gaming a

Reform and is self employed, offered to stand
bail. However, the court refused to accept him
as a surety unless he could prove his standing.
When he returned to court with his letter of
recommendation, the gambling charges had
already been dropped against Mr Halat.

Although, the charge was dropped, this is the
case that will probably force government to
make a decision as to whether the laws against
gambling should be enforced, or whether gam-
bling should be legalised. But whatever the
decision this country cannot continue to be in
the business of selective justice. And judging
from the letters being sent to the Editor — let-
ters that are so outspoken that they will not be
published — Bahamians are not going to toler-
ate this situation much longer.

Malone, an employee of the Men’s Shop for

Our leaders

are devoid

of practical
solutions

EDITOR, 'The Tribune.

It is written: ‘The leader of the
state must remember three things;
first that he reigns over the peo-
ple; second that he reigns accord-
ing to the laws and third that he
will not reign forever...’ (Greek
Philosopher Agathon).

As it was written, I pray that
the Prime Minister and those per-
sons who hold themselves out to
be leaders will give solemn heed.

In recent times in The
Bahamas we who are not asleep
at the wheel or in a drunken stu-
por below deck have come to the
inescapable conclusion that all is
not well in our nation and the
leaders, so far, seem to be devoid
of practical solutions to the prob-
lems that confront us collectively.

Aristotle in his celebrated work
“Politics” opined centuries ago
that: “If the leader is not wise and
just, how can he rule properly?” I
submit for your consideration that
the Prime Minister and the major-
ity of the current members of the
Honourable House of Assembly
are “out of touch” and are mere-
ly ornaments and props on the
stage called The Bahamas.

I say this without fear of con-
tradiction or the so-called political
repercussions. Crime is out of
control and the police are helpless
to do anything concrete about it.

We have now recorded over 54
suspected homicides for the year.

badly. negotiated proposed Euro-
pean Economic Partnership
Agreement (EPA) is about to be
signed off on and the good people
of The Bahamas have been told,
bluntly, by the erstwhile Minis-
ter of State for Finance (the Hon
Zhivargo Laing, MP) that we
must, in essence, “Shut up and
shake!”

Orders and judgments are
made and pronounced by our
courts of-law, but, in the main,
they are flaunted; ignored and
mocked by all and sundry. Count-
less thousands of Bahamian
mothers are left to fend for them-
selves and their illegitimate
(oftentimes legitimate ones also)
while the fathers are living high
on the hog and striving to impreg-
nate even more gullible and naive
women.

The wider society would
appear not be checking for any-
thing or anyone. Lawyers are out
to amass personal wealth as
quickly as possible and to hell
with the ethical or other conse-
quences.

wont to sit,up at the head table

on bail. Crimes against the person
and property are off the chain.
Petty thieving; road rage; illegal
drug sales and usage are so preva-
lent that they rarely make the
front pages or the radio news.
The judiciary is badly broken
down and no one, especially our
parliamentarians, is checking.
School dropouts are at an all time
high and the truant officers are
non existent.

Alleged “number barons” are
being tapped for cash contribu-
tions for NEMA and nota single

cil much less the Minister of
Finance (the Prime Minister).
What sort of subliminal message
is being sent to our people?

My. God, what manner of men
and women are in leadership
positions in this so-called Christ-
ian nation, which, allegedly, relies
on God for sustenance and pro-
tection?

Where are the loquacious Rev-
erend Doctor C B Moss and Bish-
op Neil C Ellis?

Indeed, some of them are like
roaring lions who go to and fro in

Bad spiritual counseling, atro-
cious marital instructions and, of
course, a bogus man-based the-
ology,

The businessperson is chal-
lenged by the extremely high
costs of doing legitimate business
in The Bahamas.

Many of them are stressed out
to the max and may remain in
business merely to continue a
family traditicn or to satisfy their
entrepreneurial yearnings.

Others use their legitimate
business fronts to allegedly laun-

. der ill gotten gains. Who cares?

The very government, elected
on a promise of “law and order”,
is now seen to be accepting such
funds via NEMA.

As a trained lawyer, I have
often wondered about what it is
to be a Bahamian and whether
or not our societal leaders are
serious about governance and the
maintenance of the social fabric.
Yes, we do have an abundance
of laws but there is a severe prob-
lem with enforcement.

There is also too much selec-
tivity in the infrequent applica-
tion of the same.

That iconic Greek Philosopher,
Plato, wrote: “As in a hospital
where drugs and doctors abound
are many diseases, in a city with
many laws there is a great injus-
tice..

To. God then, in all of these
things, even political philosophy,
be the glory.

Why are Bahamians so
afraid of competition?

EDITOR, The Tribune.

MY partner and I have been looking for a place to open a store.
This has been a very trying experience as we always get:

“That will not be a good thing for our other tenants, etc’

*. Why

are Bahamians so afraid of competition?
Wouldn’t it be better if there were more than one store in the
same location as everyone does not want to eat the same food

every day. Come on! -

Competition brings better prices to consumers as well as improv-
ing the excellence in the service industry.
Perhaps the lack of competition leads to laxidasical attitudes! Just

a thought...
Thanks for your time.

Pistol and
ammunition
‘found in stop
and search’

A GLOCK pistol and 16
live rounds of ammunition
are now safely off the streets
after police discovered them
in the vehicle of a 34-year-
old man during a “stop and
search” operation.

Officers from the mobile
division stopped the tan-
coloured 2002 Chevy Tahoe,
driven by the Brigadoon
Estates resident, at around
1am on Saturday in the St
James Road area.

He is expected to appear
in court as early as today to
be charged with the offence.

Father stabbed
while delving
is still alive

POLICE yesterday said
that a father brutally
stabbed while driving
along Sands Road on Fri-
day is still alive in hospi-
tal, but remains in critical
condition.

The father, in his early
40s, was seen stumbling
out of his black Ford
Expedition vehicle at
around midday on Friday
shortly after officers wit-
nessed a younger man -
who turned out to be his
son - holding him around
the neck from behind and
swinging his other arm
towards him in a stabbing
motion.

Police later pulled his
son out of the Expedition,
and found him in posses-
sion of an eight-inch
knife.

Police press liaison offi-
cer Walter Evans, who
described the scene as
“bizarre”, said yesterday
that officers still hope to
be able to speak with the
father about the incident.

d over Grand Bahama’s

‘deteriorating economic conditions’

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



FREEPORT - The PLP lead-
ership on Grand Bahama are very
concerned about the current
“deteriorating economic condi-
tions” on the island, where they
say Bahamian families are strug-
gling, jobs are scarce and busi-
nesses are closing down.

Constance McDonald, PLP
chairman on Grand Bahama, co-
chairman Patrick Davis, and exec-
utive members Forester Carroll
and Brian Seymour criticised
FNM MPs for their alleged silence
and lack of leadership at such a
difficult and challenging time for
Grand Bahamians.

“No-one can deny that, in all of
Grand Bahama’s history, this is
the very worst of times,” the PLP
said yesterday in Freeport.

According to the PLP, business
is slow for vendors in Port Lucaya
who are now considering opening
their shops two days a week on
days when the cruise ships are in
port.

“In recent times we have had
businesses, including many popu-
lar restaurants, close their doors
permanently because they cannot
afford to pay the electricity bills,”

*said Ms McDonald.

“A proprietor of one of those
eateries has given up completely
and opted to advertise all his
restaurant equipment and supplies
for sale,” she said.

Businessman Jeff Butler, owner
of the Harbour Room at Port
Lucaya, recently closed his restau-
rant. And other businesses are
struggling to keep open while

incurring high operational costs.

The PLP leaders said business
owners are also finding it neces-
sary to lay off workers or put them
on short work-weeks in an effort
to try and keep their doors open.

“Many workers on these jobs
tell us that they don’t get their pay
every week. Some have told of
working for as long as three weeks
before getting paid a little some-
thing on what they are owed,” said
the PLP.

Forester Carroll



The Our Lucaya resort, the only
anchor resort in the Port Lucaya
area and on the island, is experi-
encing low occupancy levels.

The PLP also stressed that
many families are hurting. They
claimed that the FNM further
added to stress to Bahamian
households by drastically raising
customs duties across the board.

“The number of ordinarily
proud Bahamians who come by
seeking assistance for school sup-
plies and lunch for their children,
foodstuffs, assistance with their
mortgage payments, their utility
bills, insurance payments, medical
bills and just about everything one
can think of is astonishing.”

The PLP said FNM MPs have
failed to provide good leadership
and representation for the people
of Grand Bahama.

They noted that there are five

‘ elected FNM members of parlia-

ment in Grand Bahama. Among
them, three senators, a deputy
speaker of the House, a parlia-
mentary secretary in the Prime
Minister’s Office, and three cabi-
net ministers.

“What is terribly ironic is that
while Grand Bahama has never
had the degree of representation
as it has presently in parliament
and at cabinet level, it has the
weakest representation ever,”
claimed the PLP.

“We are appalled, to say the

PM hails the late Harold DeGregory as
‘beacon and servant’ to Grand Bahama

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

PRIME Minister Hubert
Ingraham paid tribute to former
parliamentarian Harold DeGre-
gory during his weekend funer-
al, heralding him as a beacon
and servant to Grand Bahama.

Addressing a congregation of
dignitaries, friends and family
at DeGregory's state service in
West End on Saturday at St
Mary Magdalene Anglican
Church, Mr Ingraham spoke of
his colleague’s entrepreneurial
spirit and “life-long passion for
serving the people” of Grand
Bahama.

This passion was the catalyst
for DeGregory - a former UBP
MP for Grand Bahama - to
enter'the political scene.

Said the prime minister: “His
desire to make even greater con-
tributions to the development
of Grand Bahama led him to
enter the political arena. That

Magdalene's Anglican Church, West End, Grand Bahama on Saturday,

decision placed him in the mid-
dle of a political storm that was
brewing in The Bahamas in
those years.

“His passion for the develop-
ment of Grand Bahama and the
welfare of its people never

waned, and there are many on
this island who have benefited
not only through his business
enterprises but by his personal
generosity.

“Entering the political arena

can be a costly thing, especially °



for a person with a generous
spirit. It was more so back in
the Fifties and Sixties when one
did not get paid to serve. Harold
DeGregory was a gentleman
who maintained his dignity in
all circumstances; he was an
enterprising son of the Grand
Bahama soil, he was a kind and
generous human being.

“His family and friends and,
indeed, ali of Grand Bahama
can take pride in his life, his ser-
vice and his example. I extend
sincere condolences to Mrs -
DeGregory, to the children and
to all the family of Harold
DeGregory. May he rest in
peace.” -

DeGregory, 84, is survived by
his wife Veronica and 17 chil-
dren. He first entered the House
of Assembly in 1960, but lost his
seat three months later after an
Election Court ruled against
election results for his con-
stituency. After a re-election in
1962 he served as MP for Grand
Bahama until 1967.

m By SIR RONALD
SANDERS

(The writer is a business
consultant and former
Caribbean diplomat)

THE many ploys that
the European Commission
(EC) has used to bulldoze
Caribbean countries into
signing the Economic Part-
nership Agreement (EPA)
with the European Union
(EU) are coming to light.

One of the most glaring ©

is a statement by an offi-
cial of the EC who publicly
stated that the Caribbean’s
preferential access to the
EU market would end on
31st October 2008 and
therefore the EPA-had to
be signed by then.

This turns out to be

completely untrue. Indeed, ,

the regulation has no
expiry date.

The following is an offi-
‘cial exchange between a
member of the European
Parliament, David Martin,
and the EC:

“Question: With refer- -

ence to the statement by
the First Secretary of the
Commission office in
Jamaica, as reported in the
Jamaica Gleaner on 29
August, can the Commis-
sion confirm that the Reg-
ulation governing the pref-
erential access to the EU
market for
countries will not expire
but that a decision would
be needed by the Council
before the Regulation
could be withdrawn?
Answer from Commis-
sion: The Commission can
confirm that Council Reg-
ulation 1528/2007 OJ L

deepest condolences to his family.

expiry date and can only
be repealed by a Council
Decision”.

So much for the urgency
of Caribbean countries to

that the architecture of the
international political
economy resides firmly in
the control of the large,
industrialised nations
notwithstanding the recent
economic growth of China,
India and Brazil, and that
small countries, like those
in the Caribbean, will see
no advantageous change in
the architecture unless they
join other countries of the
South in a common effort.

If it is that the govern-

tries have chosen to eschew
their African and Pacific
partners and to put their

belief that the EPA really
is a virtuous agreement,
one has to hope that histo-
ry proves them right or
there will be a high price

to pay.

Delegates

As it is, in tne official
and ministerial meetings
that preceded the ACP
Summit in Ghana, the
Caribbean did not have a
happy time. Reports indi-
cate that, in the corridors,
delegates complained bit-
terly about the Caribbean’s
decision, apart from
Guyana, to sign the full
EPA and the region’s
“inflexibility” during, the
meetings. There were sev-
eral clashes between one
Caribbean delegate, who
stoutly defended the Most
Favoured Nation (MFN)
clause in the EPA, and the
representative of South
Africa and others. ;

The MEN clause has
been a source of con-

itself. Many experts have
argued that because EU
will be able to demand
accelerated tariff liberali-
sation from the Caribbean,
a possible consequence of
trade agreements we make
with other large developed
or developing economies,
exposes Caribbean govern-
ments to the risk of:

e losing revenues: that
will have to be replaced by
direct taxes on their peo-
ple,

e undermining their
efforts to promote South-
South trade and’ strategic
investment policies partic-
ularly with emerging
economies such as China,
India, and Brazil;

- e losing remaining pref-
erences in the EU market
since the EU will have to
extend the same prefer-
ences to other countries
with which it settles trade
agreements. Thus, existing
preferences for bananas
from Dominica, for
instance, will be very short-
lived.

Guyana is the one

tention in the Caribbean

Caribbean country that has
been in limbo over the past
few weeks. All the other
Caribbean countries have
decided to sign the EPA
and they have set October
15th as the date to do so in
Barbados. In a letter to the
EC President, Jose Bar-
roso, Guyana’s President
Bharrat Jagdeo, made it
clear that the Government
is prepared to “sign onto
the ‘Trade in Goods’ Sec-
tion of the Agreement
thereby making it fully
WTO-compatible, and to
continue negotiations with
the EC, on the other disci-
plines covered by the pre-

sent initialled text, with the.

aim of achieving an agree-

ment that would be more.

develo »ment oriented than
the current one”.

Guyana was also active
at the ACP Summit. It was

The

the only Caribbean coun-
try with a senior minister
there. It may yet be possi-
ble for Guyana to sign the
“goods only” agreement -
provided it gives the EU
an undertaking to contin-
ue negotiations on the ser-
vices and other issues in
the EPA.

One thing is for sure —

‘Caribbean governments are

victims of enormous pres-
sure and ploys by the EC.
In the course of it, the
bonds of the ACP have
been broken rendering the

‘group weak and irrelevant,

and shattering the solidar-
ity of developing nations at
a time in the international
community when they des-
perately, need to stick
together.

W hat pops in your
mind when you

think of a real estate contract?
The price, right? It’s the, critical
term, but far from the only important factor to be considered
by buyers or sellers. There are costs, finances, conveyances,
and consequences to consider.

Typical costs include commissions, inspections, stamp tax,
legal fees and so on. Your BREA representative should
firmly negotiate and explain who pays for what.

How about the deposit and financing contingencies?
Unless the buyers can pay cash, an escape clause should.
release them from obligation if financing falls through. Spec-
ifying that the loan will be secured at a certain interest rate
provides further protection.

Also pay close attention to conveyances of personal prop-
erty, such as some appliances, lighting or window treat-
ments, or furnishing. Avoid argument and further negotia-
tion by assuring there is zero confusion about what is includ-
ed in the sale price.

Another factor that should be clearly spelled out is the con-
sequences of a breach in contract by either side. This is a
binding legal document, whereby buyers in breach can lose
their deposit, or sellers in breach can be sued for “specific
performance” to force the sale of the home.

It's best for you and your BREA agent to review a stan-
dard offer before you make or consider an offer. Know
what to expect and be prepared to negotiate to Yes!

negotiations, Mr Greenidge sug-
gested that while the Caribbean
often likes to “think of itself as
very special” in the world, and
therefore worthy of different
treatment, there is little justifi-
cation for this.

His comments are likely to
ruffle the feathers of this coun-
try’s EPA oponents, who see
the agreement as representing
a threat to the country’s future
development and have called for
an alternative way forward.

Speaking at a Globalisation ,

Conference at the Sheraton
Nassau Beach Resort on Friday,
he set out to debunk many of
the criticisms of the EPA and
the alternatives that have been
proposed to signing on as the
region — except Guyana, which
wants a “goods only” EPA, and
Haiti - is expected to do on
October 15.

The conference was organised
by the Bahamas Chamber of

Commerce, in conjunction with
the Bahamas Hotel Association,
the Ministry of Finance and the
Inter-American Development
Bank,

A former Minister of Finance
in Guyana for more than a
decade, Mr Greenidge said the
options that detractors propose
- such as getting a waiver, rene-
gotiating the agreement or stick-
ing with the expired Cotonou
agreement that
Caribbean countries to be treat-
ed in a preferential way - “don’t
exist at all.”

“The search for salvation in
international trade fora is a
dream,” he stated. “The world is
changing. Everything is about
change, especially when it comes
to trade matters.” ~

Whereas critics question why
the government is including ser-
vices in the liberalisation offer
made to Europe, Mr Greenidge

whether she had been sexually assaulted, according to CSP Miller,
although the circumstances in which she was found make it likely

this was the case.

In a statement, police press liaison officer Walter Evans appealed
for the public to come forward and assist police in determining the

victim’s identity.

Yesterday, CSP Miller said police have been approached by
somebody reporting a missing young girl, but they have not yet had
an opportunity to determine whether the victim is that person.

“We'll see if they can do that tomorrow,” said CSP Miller.

contends it is in the region’s
interest that services were a part
of the EPA as this is primarily
what its members trade in,
rather than goods, like food or
clothing, and therefore where
we stand to gain an advantage.

As to the complaint that this
is nO win as companies in our
services industries are not posi-
tioned to compete at the Euro-
pean level, Mr Greenidge said:
“That’s the case now but there
are a number of areas in which
the Bahamas already provides
international services and it is
very well-known in these areas.
The point is, if you only stick
with the services you currently
have, why do you think you'll
survive? That is the question to
ask.”

However, Mr Greenidge
admitted the “potential” that
lies within the EPA “does not,
come just from signing it.”

He said countries must “equip
themselves in good time”,
among other things, improving
productivity levels to make the
most of the deal.

He also proposed that while
the challenges associated with
the implementation of the EPA
on the administrative side - for
example, major customs reform
for the Bahamas - will be “enor-
mous” and “burdensome”, they
are nonetheless necessary and
allowing us to access the “exten-
sive benefits” the EPA provides
for.

Contrary to the assertion that
the region was “bullied” by the

European Union into giving up

THE TRIBUNE



its preferential, non-reciprocal
trade jfarrangement, Mr
srecnidge said it was, in fact,
other developing countries like
Colombia and Costa Rica, see-
ing our special treatment as
unfair, that made the initial plea
for change.

Meanwhile, had Europe failed
to come to a new trade agree-
ment with its former colgnies as
mandated by the World Trade
Organisation in light of the pleas
from its member countries, it
would have faced trade sanc-
tions - a prospect we could not
reasonably ask them to bear on
our behalf, said Mr Greenidge.

He suggested that, by enter-
ing into the EPA, countries like
the Bahamas will be better posi-
tioned to undertake much-need-
ed economic diversification.

“This region is quite narrow-
ly focused on tourism (and) it
is one sector. When the US
sneezes you will get pneumonia,
so why do you assume that it’s
safe? Diversification is actually
the protection against that type
of risk. In order to diversify you
diversify into a market that is
sympathetic, you negotiate a
market that is sympathetic, and
that is what you have done
here.”

His comments came as lead-
ers of some countries attending
the African, Caribbean and
Pacific (ACP) Summit in
Ghana, Africa, last week
announced after four days of
intense debate that they would
like the EPA reviewed. Deputy
Prime Minister Brent Symon-
ette attended the meeting,
which saw Africans protest
against the EPA in the Ghana-
ian capital.

mation and all records relating to the endorsed
product.

When the policy was first introduced 17
years ago, outraged local businesses and par-
liamentarians immediately took steps to kill it,
as they were of the view that any efforts by the
BHA to endorse any products and/or services
would be disruptive and counter productive to
the efforts of Bahamian businesses to operate
freely in The Bahamas.

Former FNM MP for Shirlea, Pierre
Dupuch blew the whistle in the House on the
BHA’s endorsement scheme in 1991, and
pointed out that the BHA’s policy would
usurp government’s powers, kill competition
and create monopolies.

He charged that the hotel association want-
ed to take over the government’s responsi-
bility of taxing the people.

“They call this method of extortion and
kickbacks, endorsement,” Mr. Dupuch said
in the House of Assembly in July, 1991.

At that time he told parliamentarians that .
the hotel association was guilty of crea

ting, “a

BHA endorsement policy

diabolical system that will make everybody
who does business with them give them —
the only thing you can call it is — a kickback.
And if you are not prepared to give them a
kickback they are not prepared to do busi-
ness with you.”

That same year other businesses, like lead-
ing tour operator William Saunders, strongly
condemned the BHA’s endorsement scheme.

“T wish to go on record to you that we are
against the proposal of having to obtain an
endorsement in order to be able to become a
preferred supplier to the BHA,” Mr. Saunders
said at the time.

“We also feel very strongly that the BHA
would be infringing on the rights of Bahami-
an companies being able to do business in
their own country only through a BHA
endorsement,” Mr Saunders said.

Seven years later, in 1998, the BHA again
attempted to resurrect its endorsement policy,
but failed, as businesses thought the payment
of endorsement fees.of any kind would.set,

to endorse all other products and/or services
that did business with the hotels, including
but not limited to tour operators, activities,
stores, printers, taxi drivers, ground trans-
portation companies and grocers.

Now, in 2008, the endorsement policy has
again resurfaced.

Recently, the BHA contacted their mem-
bers advising them not to sign contracts with
Dupuch Publications unless they are endorsed
by the BHA. The company’s numerous tourist
and business publications provide visitors with
a glimpse into island life and promote tourism
and investment in The Bahamas.

While making his contributions in the
House of Assembly Wednesday, Mr Wilch-
combe strongly condemned the BHA for its
attempted actions.

“T want to lay these on the table of the
House of Assembly, Mr. Speaker, because I
think it’s important to see where it is coming
from,” Mr. Wilchcombe said. “The President
of the Bahamas Hotel Association saying that
you will not be recognized...we will not give

you any business (unless endorsed). That can’t
HEtight in this country. I don’t carewhoiit is.”

“We engaged in this simile

exercise during which we hold up
for emulation the achievement of
our best. Our aim must be to
achieve and maintain a high level
of individual and collective per-
formance,” said Mr Ingraham.

This week was the ninth annu-
al Public Service Week. The
Recognition of Retirees ceremo-
ny took place at the Christ Com-
munity Church on Bellot Road
yesterday morning.

Mr Ingraham said: “Some 221
individuals retired from the Pub-
lic Service during the 2007/2008
year. The majority having com-
pleted 30 or more years of ser-
vice, which is no small accom-
plishment. Thirteen public offi-
cers have been selected by their
respective ministries and depart-
ments for outstanding and exem-
plary performance during the past
year.”

He added: “The theme for this
year’s Public Service Week,
‘Improving the Delivery of Qual-
ity Customer Service,’ appears to
be a challenge today; it used to be
the hallmark of public service.
The retirees we honour today
know of what I speak; so also do
our nominees for Public Officer
of the Year.

“In their working years they
have lived by and honoured the
precept: an honest day’s work for
an honest day’s pay.”

Mr Ingraham recognised ‘that
some of those being honoured
started out at the lower end of

Prime Minister

the public service and worked
their way up through the ranks.

“They were willing to attend ©

evening classes, they were cour-
teous; they were disciplined, they
respected authority, and they
were not afraid of hard work.

“Sadly, these core characteris-
tics are not in abundant supply
in our society today; and unhap-
pily, this is reflected in our public
service which mirrors our soci-
ety.”

Mr Ingraham told those gath-
ered, which included senior pub-
lic officers, retired public officers
and church members, that
Bahamians must continue to
“position The Bahamas, not only
to maintain our economic status,
but also to adapt to any number

_ of unexpected eventualities in the

world’s economy, such as that
being experienced now.’

The prime minister congratu-
lated all of this year’s retirees,
who he said “have made signifi-
cant contributions in their respec-
tive areas over many years.”

“Their dedication and commit-
ment on behalf of the Bahamian
people are indeed highly appre-
ciated,” he added.

He thanked the Public Service
Week Committee for their work,
as well as all serving public offi-
cers for their continued commit-
ment, encouraging each “to make
quality service your hallmark and
in so doing bring high praise to
your profession and to your coun-
try.”

Llewellyn “Gus” Cartwright
Celebrating “35” years of Entrepreneurship
September 1973 — 2008 |

In September, 1973 the Bahamas business sector witnessed the emergence of
a new entrepreneur in the person of Llewellyn “Gus” Cartwright. The sector
would gain a dedicated young spark that made it his mission to contribute
in a meaningful way to the growth and development of Bahamian business.

_ Asa young boy the desire and spirit of an entrepreneur was placed in Gus’s

psyche as he observed his mother working two (2) jobs to take care of their
family. In his early teens Gus was forced to take on employment working

‘two jobs after school and on week-ends in addition to completing his mane

work and chores.

Upon completing his high school education, he went to work with his uncle
Herbert Treco in the construction field where the compensation was little
but the desire to learn the trade was great. In 1971, and more so in 1972,
due to the inconsistency and decline in the construction field, Gus traveled

to Chicago to Martial Arts school where he obtained a 5" degree black’.

belt in Karate earning the designation of Master. Upon his return to New
Providence, he opened his first business, a Karate school, operating out

of a rented building on Shirley Street. The Karate school was the training.

ground for croupiers from Paradise Island, the Defense Force and the man
or woman off the street desiring to become the Bruce Lee’s of the Bahamas.
During this period he remained in the construction field which provided
supplemental income and allowed him to further his knowledge of the
construction industry. The construction industry would be the young Karate
teacher’s saviour when the school on Shirley Street burned down. However,

whilst working construction Gus was able to purchase a building of his own
_ in Bilney Lane where the martial school re-opened.

In 1979, Gus in the spirit of entruepruenership incorporated and opened
Family Fashions, a clothing and shoe store. His Uncle Thomas Treco owner
of Shane’s Department store provided him mentorship in the retail business.

own roofing company. The management of the clothing business was passed
over to his wife Cassandra.

In 1989, still unsatisfied with his financial situation, Gus incorporated a
second company Checkers Café, a Bahamian food business. His mother
Muriel Cartwright and his uncle Hebert Treco provided the knowledge and f
guidance for this new enterprise which operated out of the Mackey Street ff
property. During the period Gus continued working construction and the _
second retail store remained in operation. Gus realized quite quickly that
this new venture required more attention and focus than any of his other |
business ventures. The restaurant business required very early mornings, late |
nights, determination, perseverance, an inexhaustible amount of patience,
strong management and negotiation skills. The retail clothing business was |
_ closed once Checkers success, became apparent.. Checkers continues to
compete with the American fast-food giants that are operating franchises
within the Bahamas. It now has three (3) strategically placed locations with
an additional location opening in the near future. :

Ten - Dodge Ram 1500's
‘Six - C evy"silverado’s

Seeking to diversify his investments Mr. Cartwright opened Sunrise
Washhouse, a Laundromat business located at Bar 20 corner.

A humanitarian at heart Mr. Cartwright has through the years donated
to individuals and organizations, such as pastors, churches, schools, the
sick, sporting, civic. and rehabilitative organizations. Many students have
also been able to further their tertiary education with. the assistance of Mr.
Cartwright and his businesses.

During the entire span of his business life, some thirty five (35) years, Mr.
Cartwright a man that came from humble beginnings can surely be labeled
as a successful self-employed individual and entrepreneur.

A major donor to the pro-

three awards for students within
this top merit scholarship pro-

In addition to its financial
donation, the bank has granted
internships to three of the schol-
ars for the past two summers.

FirstCaribbean’s managing
director Sharon Brown said,
“FirstCaribbean’s commitment to
education is well-articulated. We
continue to provide a world-class
experience to our stellar schol-
ars.

“Our team of experts in the
various segments of the bank

es to pursue a career in law or

diplomacy. Having worked in the
managing director’s office along-
side the bank’s legal counsel and
the corporate secretary, Delia
said, “I am truly grateful for the
significant knowledge and expe-
rience I gained. I interacted with
a variety of persons and learned
team-building skills, and I also
observed great managers, learned
about my own strengths and
weaknesses, greatly improved my
organisation skills and learned
the efficiencies of corporate cul-
ture.”

A third-year economics and
finance major, Dominic embraced
the opportunity to work in the
bank’s operations department
and was able to practice some of
the theoretical concepts he had
already learned at college, such
as visiting the Central Bank clear-

ing house for processing and
clearing cheques. He said, “Oper-
ations is the nucleus of the bank,
It is behind the scenes and really
constitutes the inner workings of
the business, you get to learn how
everything works.” |

Another third-year scholar,
LaNadia is pursuing studies in
accounting. Describing herself
as shy, she felt this work experi-
ence motivated her to improve
her social and professional skills.
As a result of her FirstCaribbean
internship, LaNadia is considering
combining her accounting major
with banking and finance.

“I worked in the wealth man-
agement segment of the bank and
I learned more about the offshore
sector.”

“TI was previously thinking only
about accounting, but now I
realise that there are so many



more possibilities,” she said.

Lottis Shearer, director of stu-
dent leadership at COB with
oversight for the PSP, said that
she was “very pleased” to work
with FirstCaribbean Bank as a
partner in the programme.

“They have been enthusiastic
about the programme from day
one and they have followed
through with everything that was
promised, consistently offering
internships to scholars and even
other COB students.

“Scholars who participate in
professional internships, such as
the experience that First-
Caribbean gives its interns, earn
invaluable organisational skills,
helping them to perform even
better in their studies. Moreover,
the experience continues to be
great at building the scholars’ self-
esteem,” she said.

International Day
of Older Persons




is observed

@ By LLONELLA GILBERT
Bahamas Information
Services
THE United Nations esti-

mates that by 2050 older per-

sons will account for a quarter
of the population of the

Caribbean, Minister of Labour

and Social. Development Sen-

~ ator Dion Foulkes said at the

International Day of Older

Persons ‘Church Service held

at the Church of God of

Prophecy East Street Taber-

nacle.

The service éomimended a
month of activities planned by
the Ministry of Labour and
Social Development and the
National Council on Older
Persons to raise awareness
about the concerns and contri-
butions of older persons.

Mr Foulkes said that accord-
ing to the UN, the most rapid
population growth will happen
in countries least able to cope
with the impact of aging, which
could result in increased pover-
ty, isolation, decline in hous-
ing, healthcare and the gener-
al quality of life if nations do
not adequately prepare.

“It is therefore very fitting
that the Bahamas has adopt-
ed the UN theme, ‘Rights of
Older Persons’ while we exam-
ine closely the aging of our
population,” he said.

Mr Foulkes explained that
the country has a small popu-
lation with limited resources,
which must be shared across
an archipelago, so manage-
ment of any service or resource
is very difficult.

: : cz s

“Throughout our history,”
he said, “strong family ties and
cooperation between the gen-
erations has long been the
oe that bound us togeth-

r, Parents would go to work
with the comfort and knowl-
edge that grandparents would
care and nurture their chil-
dren.”

Mr Foulkes added, “During
extreme economic hardship,
parents would also travel to
other islands or abroad, as dur-
ing the days of the contract,
leaving their children in the
care of grandparents in order
for them to earn a better stan-
dard of living.”

He said grandparents not
only helped with child care,
they were also a stabilising
force in the family and the
wider community, ensuring the
continuity and cohesiveness of
the country as a whole.

‘However, as a result of
imported popular culture, we
have exchanged these values
for those which we think are
more sophisticated and we are
reaping its unpleasant results.”

The Minister said family val-
ues have declined in many seg-
ments of the population and
the elderly have been margin-
alised.

Therefore, the etiallese for
the government is to raise the
“collective consciousness of the
Bahamian people” to the sig-
nificance of not only caring for
older persons, but in valuing
and protecting their rights, he
said.

Mr Foulkes noted that the
increased number of older per-



sons as projected by the UN
will signify a decreased labour
force and increased demands
on the healthcare system,
National Insurance, and social
services.

“However, these issues can
be mitigated by a proper plan
of action, inclusive. of proac-

tive education, health care and |

social services,” the Minister
said.

Mr Foulkes explained that
as the government seeks to
address issues pertaining to the
elderly, it must ensure that old-
er persons are included in the

process, as they are a valued

-resource which is too often

overlooked.

Bishop Franklyn Ferguson
Minister of the Gospel Church
of God of Prophecy said if old-
er persons are ignored, the
price will be paid in the future.

“To disrespect their legacy
and to ignore their wisdom and
skill always bring calamity this
is painful and that happens in a
lot of places around the world
and we see this even in our
own country.”

Bishop Ferguson said older
persons should feel loved,
respected and be aware that
someone cares for them.

The upcoming scheduled
event for National Older Per-
sons Month will be held Fri-
day, October.17, where the
government will partner with
the Parkinson Foundation to
host a forum entitled, “Improv-
ing the Quality of Life” at
Transfiguration Baptist
Church Hall, Market and
Vesey Street.

Barack Obama’s candidacy
comes after two presidential
elections that left many disen-
franchised and disillusioned
American voters, some of
whom now feel that they were
tricked into submission through
scare tactics such as the release
of terrorists’ .tapes to the media
or the apparent elevation of the
threat level at opportune times.
‘The oratorically-gifted Demo-

numerous odds on his way to
securing his party’s nomination.

sen running mate — Palla —
seems to have been a plan to
appease the base of the right
wing (Grand Ole Party) and use
Palin as the ‘token female’, with
hopes of appealing to disgrun-
tled Hillary Clinton voters.

Although John MeCain —
who has aligned himself with

“man,

«




Bush with 95 per cent of his
Senatorial votes in the last eight
years — claims to be an agent
of change, he has flip-flopped
on prominent issues and the
Republicans, who have con-
trolled the White House for the
last eight years and the Con-
gress for six of them, have
called the shots for most of
McCain’s 26 years in office.
His seemingly poorly vetted
selection of Alaska Governor
Sarah Palin, who appears to de
a ditzy and wholly unprepaied
to be a heartbeat away frori the
presidency, is possibly MeCain’s
first major blunder.

New York Times columiust
Frank Rich, who reters to
McCain’s VP pick as an “ideo-
logical sell-out,” in addressing
the Palin choice in his Septem-
ber 6 column said:

“He (McCain) wanted to
choose the pro-abortion-rights
Joe Lieberman as his vice-pres-
ident. If he were still a true
maverick, he would have done
so. But instead he chose parti-
sanship and pclitics over coun-
try. ‘God only made one John
MeCain, and lie is his own
“said the shafted Licher-
man if his cwn tedious con-
vention speech last week,

“What a pathetic cupe.



McCain is now the man of

re

James Dobson and ‘Pony
Perkins. The ‘no surrender’
warrior surrendered tu ihe
agents of intolerance not just
by dumping his pal for Palin
but by moving so far to the nght
on abortion that even Cindy

McCain seemed unaware oi nis,

radical shift when being inter-
viewed by Katie Couric last
week.”
Rich went on to say:

“His spec ed- cating of Palin tout
firmed a more dangers
sonality tic that has dogged his
entire career. His decision mak-
ing process is mmpetuous and,
in tts Bush-like ee erence for

Us pre t-



gut jstinet over facts, poten
tially reckless.

heads to frequently compare °

her to dumb blondes. This self-
confessed ‘hockey mum’ and
lover of moose stew has been
propelled into the world spot-
light as a potential saviour of
the Republican party’s presi-
dential hopes.

“We still don’t know a lot
about Palin except that she’s
better at delivering a speech
than McCain and that she
‘defends her own pregnant
daughter’s right to privacy even
as she would have the govern-
ment intrude to police the
reproductive choices of all oth-
er women. Most of the rest of
the biography supplied by her
and the McCain camp is fic-
tion,” Rich asserts.

Mrs Palin, who recently has
seemingly been a_ gaffe
machine, thrilled a dreary
Republican convention, so
much so that they have now lift-
ed Mr Obama’s message of
hope and change. The former
sports reporter, who has served
as mayor of a small town of
5,000 people (Wasilla) and 20
months as governor of a state of
650,000, appeared clueless when
quizzed about the Bush doc-
trine, claims to have foreign
policy experience because Alas-
ka and Canada share a border
and because Alaska and Russia

are relatively close, although |

the Bering Strait clearly sepa-
rate these places and she has
seemingly had little to no inter-
action with any of these coun-
tries in her capacity as gover-
nor. Furthermore, she claims to

have been opposed to congres-
sional earmarks although she
previously accepted federal
pork.

According, to Frank Rich:
“(Palin) didn’t say ‘no thanks’
to the ‘Bridge to Nowhere’ until
after Congress had already
abandoned it but given Alaska
a blank check for $223 million
in taxpayers’ money anyway.

“Far from rejecting federal |

pork, she hired lobbyists to
secure her town a dispropor-
tionate share of earmarks
($1,000 per resident in 2002, 20
times the per capita average in
other states). Though McCain
claimed ‘she has had national
security as one of her primary
responsibilities,’ she has never

issued a single command as °|_

head of the Alaska National
Guard.

As for her ‘executive experi-
ence’ as mayor, she told her

‘hometown paper in Wasilla,

Alaska, in 1996, the year of her
election: ‘It’s not rocket science.
It’s $6 million and 53 employ-
ees.’ Her much-advertised cru-
sade against officials abusing
their office is now compromised
by a bipartisan ethics investiga-
tion into charges that she did
the same.”

Sarah Palin, winner of the
Miss Wasila beauty pageant in
1984, also appears to have been
indecisive or not too bright
even during her college years,
transferring back and forth
between Hawaii Pacific College
(now University), where she
spent one semester (1982); then
on to North Idaho College for
two years of general studies
(1983); then to the University of

Idaho; then to Matanuska-
Susitna College in Alaska, and
finally returning to the Univer-
sity of Idaho, where she gradu-
ated in 1987 with a degree in
journalism and a minor in polit-
ical science.

Reckless.

e HAPPY WORLD TEACH-
ERS DAY TO ALL THOSE
TEACHERS WHO HAVE
HELPED TO MOULD ME
AND COUNTLESS OTHE?
BAHAMIANS!

I’m always perplexed when I encounter rude, uncivil “‘civ-
il’ servants who seemingly forget that their salaries are paid
by taxpayers and that they should always be polite.

Last week Thursday, I visited the Ministry of Housing on
Charlotte Street for a briefing with Minister Kenneth Russell.
After being told by one of the minister’s office staff that he
was not there, I left. However, as I was about to exit the min-
istry, a lady at the front desk told me that she had just seen
the minister and that he had probably not arrived at his
office area as. yet.

Acting on her recommendation that I sit in the lobby until
she could contact him or he walked inside, I waited.

Ten minutes later, a staff member from the minister’s
office came to the front desk and, upon seeing me, proceed-
ed to publicly address me in a discourteous, hostile manner
while staring scowlingly at me.

Frankly, she was so loud and disrespectful — even shout-
ing that she knew the minister’s schedule and that he was out
of the building — that astonished persons from within the
ministry came out, obviously wondering what the commotion
was about.

Taken aback, I spoke to her sternly about her attitude and
sought to discover what could possibly have warranted her
boorish behaviour. She never inquired to discover if I had
been dvised to wait and, frankly, behaved as if she owned the
ministry.

She -ven threatened that any document that is sent to the
minist~r must come across her desk, subtly suggesting that she
can I::se a file or two, or any note that I left. I was livid!

- Immediately after her ear-splitting rudeness, parliamentary
secretary Brensil Rolle exited his office. I expressed my con-
cerns ‘o him and he apologised for this obviously uncouth
public servant. I have also spoken to the minister, who
expressed his objections to his staffer’s behaviour.

As I was leaving, two staffers and the security officers at
the ministry - who witnessed the encounter - expressed their
detestation of the nasty attitude of this “uncivil” servant,
who I’m told has behaved in that manner with other visitors
to the minister. :

Maybe her position in the minister’s office has empowered
her — at least in her mind — in more ways than reality
reflects.

I always wonder why these people are hired and placed in
positions where they must interact with the public. Were
these people ever trained by the Bahama Host programme or,
at least, to give courteous customer service? ‘

Olmert to urge Moscow: Don’t arm Israel’s enemies

@ By AMY TEIBEL
JERUSALEM

Prime Minister Ehud Olmert,
traveling to Russia this week on
one of his last diplomatic mis-
sions, said Sunday he would
urge Moscow not to sell sophis-
ticated weapons to Israel's ene-
mies, according to the Associ-
ated Press.

Iran is interested in buying
anti-aircraft missiles that could
cripple any military strike
against its nuclear program.
Israel is also afraid Moscow
would sell Syria the same mis-
sile defense system.

In an overture before the trip,
Israel's Cabinet voted Sunday
to recognize Russia's claim to
property in downtown
Jerusalem. Russia laid claim to
the site, named for the son of a
Russian czar, on behalf of the
Russian Orthodox Church.

Olmert travels to Russia on
Monday with little diplomatic
clout: Within weeks, he is to
step aside, driven from office
by multiple corruption allega-

tions. But he told his Cabinet
on Sunday that he would use
the two-day visit to bring up
security issues of long-standing
concern in his talks with Russ-
ian leaders.

"We will remind them again
of matters that trouble us great-
ly," including "the supply of
arms to irresponsible elements
whose activities worry us very
much,
in a televised statement, without
elaborating. He also said he
would press to keep working to
resolve "the Iranian problem,
where Russia plays a special
role."

Iranian President Mahmoud
Ahmadinejad has frequently
called for Israel's destruction,
and Israel suspects he means to
carry out that objective by
developing nuclear bombs, with
the help of a Russian-built
nuclear power plant. Iran says
its nuclear-program is for peace-
ful purposes.

Israel hopes international
diplomacy will persuade Iran to
halt its nuclear program but says

"the prime minister said,



INTERNATIONAL NEWS

"all options are on the table" if
diplomacy fails. In 1981, Israeli
warplanes destroyed an Iraqi
nuclear reactor.

The U.N. Security Council
has approved three rounds of
sanctions on Iran. But Russia, a
council member with veto pow-
er, opposes tightening the sanc-
tions any further.

Iran says it plans to buy from
Russia advanced S-300 anti-air-
craft missiles that could detect
aircraft sent to destroy its
nuclear facilities. Syria, which
backs Hezbollah guerrillas who
battled Israel in Lebanon in
2006, reportedly has asked to
buy them, too.

Russia has not confirmed the
reports. But recently, Russia's -
foreign minister, Sergey Lavrov,
said his government was pre-
pared to sell Syria arms with a
"defensive character."

Israel claims Russian missiles
sold to Syria made their way
into the Hezbollah's hands in
the 2006 war, though it has not
accused Russia of directly arm-
ing the guerrilla group.



THE TRIBUNE



ISRAELI PRIME MINISTER Ehud Olmert scale at the ene cabinet oa in Jerusalem, Sunday, Oct.
5, 2008. Israeli prime Minister Ehud Olmert has resigned in a corruption scandal but remains caretaker prime
minister until his successor as head of the ruling Kadima party, Tzipi Livni, forms a coalition.

Syria is holding indirect peace
negotiations with Israel, but the
two enemies remain in a state of
war.

After four decades of Cold
War animosity, ties between
Moscow and Israel improved
significantly after the disinte-

gration of the Soviet Union in
1991. Israel is also home to
more than | million Soviet emi-
gres. But Moscow's position on
Iran and arms sales to Syria
have strained ties, as have

Israeli weapons sales to Geor- |

gia, which Russia briefly invad-

ed in August in support of pro-
Russia secessionists.

The Cabinet's decision on
Sunday to transfer ownership
over "Sergei's Courtyard" in
downtown Jerusalem was
meant to improve the diplo-
matic climate before the visit.

The site, named for Grand
Duke Sergei Alexandrovich, a
son of Czar Alexander II, was
built in 1890 to accommodate
Russians making pilgrimages to
the Holy Land. Israel bought
other Russian property in the
area 45 years ago.

Rice: US not trying to undermine Russia

1 By ROBERT BURNS

ASTANA, Kazakhstan

U.S. efforts to build closer ties to this

' energy-rich former Soviet republic are not

meant to undermine Russian influence in
Central Asia, Secretary of State Con-
doleezza Rice said Sunday, according to
the Associated Press.

"We don't see any of this as a zero-sum
game," she told reporters flying with her
to the Kazakh capital from India. U.S. gains
need not mean Russian losses, she said.

"First of all, Kazakhstan is an indepen-
dent country. It can have friendships with
whomever it wishes," she said.

"That is, I think, perfectly acceptable in
the 21st century, so we don't see and don't

accept any notion of a-‘special sphere of

influence" for Russia in this region.

Later, at a news conference with Foreign
Minister Marat Tazhin, Rice said no one
should question Kazakhstan's desire to have
good relations with all countries in its

‘6 PACK 12 OZ
REGULAR ONLY

YELLOW
ONIONS _

region. "This is not some kind of contest for
the affection of Kazakhstan," Rice said.

Tazhin said his country's relationship
with the United States was "stable" and
had "strategic character." Kazakh ties with
Russia, he said, are "excellent" and "polit-
ically correct." ;

Asked by a reporter whether he consid-
ered his country to be in a Russian "sphere
of influence," Tazhin said no and that he
believed such a question was of interest
mainly to academics and to journalists. Rice
later met with Prime Minister Karim Masi-
mov and President Nursultan Nazarbayev,
Kazakhstan's autocratic ruler who has main-
tained a military alliance and close rela-
tions with Russia. He also has kept a door
open to the West and looked to develop
new export routes to Europe for Kaza-
khstan's vast energy resources. But that
balancing act has been in doubt since Rus-
sia's invasion of Georgia in August, which
threatened to close off the corridor for
pipelines around Russia. In the interview en

route to Astana, Rice disclosed that Deputy
Secretary of State John Negroponte was in
Iraq over the weekend for talks with the
Iraqi government on planning for the tran-
sition as more U.S. forces withdraw and
Iraqis take on more responsibilities.

The discussions also covered the remain-
ing obstacles to a security agreement that
would govern the U.S. military presence in
Iraq beyond December, when the current
legal authorities expire, Rice said. Negoti-
ations "are going along" and are close to
being finished, she added.

"We are close, but as you might i imag-
ine, because it's an important and difficult
agreement when you're trying to work out
arrangements that are both going to protect
our people and be. responsive to Iraqi sev-
ereignty, that just takes time,"-she said.

Rice said Negroponte was "not doing
anything particularly about it" on this visit
beyond talking with Iraqi leaders. Her char-
acterization of his role did not seem to indi-
cate he was in Iraq to finalize a deal.

New car
sales down
some 29 per
cent year-
on-year

@ By NEIL HARTNELL
Tribune Business Editor

NEW car sales in the
Bahamas were down almost 25
per cent for the first eight
months in 2008, Tribune Busi-
ness was told, the decline having
increased as the year has pro-
gressed with a 40 per cent fall-
off in August.

That month, according to
data gathered by the Bahamas
Motor Dealers Association
(BMDA), new car sales
dropped from 315 in August
2007 to 189 this year. Apart
from January, every month this
year has seen a year-on-year
decline in new car sales, Tri-
bune Business having previous-
ly reported that sales were
down by 43 per cent and 29 per
cent for May and June respec-
tively.’

The new car sales drop pro-
vides further evidence of the
deteriorating economic situa-
tion facing many Bahamians, as
they are among the big-ticket,
high-priced items that are first
to feel the pinch from any
reduction in consumer spend-
ing and confidence.

Rick Lowe, operations man-

- ager at Nassau Motor Company

(NMC), told Tribune Business
that he felt a major factor
behind the decline in new car
sales was the tighter lending cri-
teria imposed by many com-
mercial banks, which had made
it more difficult for consumers
to obtain loans and finance pur-
chases.

Mr Lowe said he based this
observation on the fact that
Nassau Motor Company was
still receiving numerous cus-
tomers who were walking the
showroom and lot floors, look-
ing at and testing new cars.

“From our perspective, we
still have floor traffic,” Mr Lowe
told Tribune Business. “In June,
we had cumulative visits from
117 people, and in July we had
cumulative visits from 170 peo-
ple.

“People are not able to get
loans, it seems. That’s definite-
ly had an impact. People leave
fully expecting to get the loans,
and don’t have any luck. It
takes a week to 10 days for a
purchase to go through, even if
approved.”

Mr Lowe attributed the
industry’s woes to a slowing

Government
revenues
behind prior
year by ‘little
more than

@ By NEIL HARTNELL
Business Editor

GOVERNMENT rev-
enues are lagging behind pri-
or year comparatives “by a
little more than $11-million”,
the minister of state for
finance told Tribune Busi-
ness, although this position
had remained stable since
July.

Zhivargo Laing said: “To
date, revenue has been
behind last year by a little
more than $11 million, but
that entire $11 million was
seen in the month of July.

“Since then, for each
month since July, revenue
has been on par with last
year. There has been no
movement in that shortfall
since July. Naturally, rev-
enues are behind forecast,
but they are behind in a way
that we saw in the previous
year.”

Mr Laing said it was
impossible to say whether
the existing revenue short-
fall would remain, get worse
or be eliminated by the end
of the 2008-2009 fiscal year

EPA not ‘unique’ as

Tribune Business

Reporter

THE proposed Economic
Partnership Agreement
between the European Union
(EPA) and the CARIFORUM
countries is not the first of its
kind to focus on reciprocity or
have a services-based compo-
nent.

Carl Greenridge, deputy
senior director-general of the
Caribbean Regional Negotiat-
ing Machinery (CRNM), told
persons,attending the Bahamas
Chamber of Commerce’s glob-
alization conference last week
that while there was a lot of
debate about the reciprocity
component in the agreement,
the EPA was not the only trade
deal to include that or a ser-
vices offer.

He pointed out that it was
always important to sign trade
agreements, and: this is some-
thing the Caribbean has to get
used to, with the World Trade
Organisation (WTO) anticipat-
ing that there will be 400 future
free trade agreements.

As far as services is con-
cerned, Mr _ Greenridge
explained that all countries in

Wea 3

the Caribbean are dependent
on services, which is really all
they have to offer for trade.

During a panel discussion,
attorney Brian Moree, who has
been an opponent of the EPA,
noted that while one may argue
about whether the EPA will be
good for the Bahamas, it cannot
be denied that it will bring sig-
nificant change.

He also expressed concern

It is understood they are -

possible opportunity, especially

_ since it was obtained at a hear-

ing where they were not pre-
sent.

In addition, Tribune Business
understands that Mr Olsen’s
side is alleging that responsibil-
ity for any loan repayment
default lies squarely with Mi
Gonzalez. They are claiming

that he failed to live up to sev- ,

eral obligations, one of which
was to provide New Hope
Holdings with $12 million in
working capital - over and
above the initial purchase price
- to fund its operations.

This, Mr Olsen is alleging,
never happened, and without

.that capital New Hope ended

up defaulting. Essentially, the
core allegation in their argu-
ments rests on the claim that
any responsibility for the loan
default lies with Mr Gonzalez
himself.

Tribune Business also under-
stands that another issue in dis-

pute is whether Mr Gonzalez

was ever a shareholder in New
Hope and the Grand Bahama
projects. Mr Gonzalez and his
team are arguing that he never
was, while Mr Olsen’s attorneys
are alleging just the opposite.

The legal dispute, which has
the potential to run for many
months, risks inflicting further
damage on Grand Bahamia’s
already battered economy. It
has yet to recover from the 2004
hurricane season and subse-
quent Royal Oasis closure, plus
the internal ownership feud at
the Grand Bahama Port
Authority (GBPA).

That continuing battle,;cou-
pled with the fall-out:fromsthe
global credit crunch and €So-
nomic downturn, has negative-
ly impacted proposed projects
for Grand Bahama, such as
Morgan Stanley’s Barbary
Beach development, the Raven
Group project and others.

These littered plastic bags are an
eyesore and send a poor message to
visitors about The Bahamas. However,
these bags not only mar the beauty

from the latest Wall Street melt-
down, meaning that the battle
over New Hope Holdings’
assets, which could possibly tie

them up for, some time, is the .

last thing Freeport and Grand
Bahama need just now.

Any receivership would seek
.o protect and preserve New
Hope Holdings’ assets until the
court rules on which party is
correct, but the situation would
undoubtedly unsettle staff and
the marinas’ customers and oth-
er creditors.

It would also stymie — at least
for the moment — the plans Mr
Olsen and New Hope Holdings
had to develop their Freeport
properties through construction
of facilities such as condo hotels.

New Hope Holdings and Mr
Olsen acquired the 115-slip Port
Lucaya Marina in August, 2006,
amid much fanfare, with a sign-
ing ceremony that was attended
by then Prime Minister Perry
Christie and senior. Grand
Bahama Port Authority
(GBPA) executives.

Together with the Grand
Bahama Yacht Club and other
associated facilities, the Port
Lucaya Marina was, according
to press releases issued at the
time, intended to be the center-

piece of a $500 million, 70-acre-

‘in our oceans.

That project was slated to
include 300 yacht slips and 300
new waterfront condos, town-
houses and private residences,
with New Hope Holdings also
intended to dredge the Bell .
Channel to 13 feet in depth to
accommodate the latest class of
mega yachts.

Yet the litigation is likely to
set this project back by months,
if not years.

Mr Olsen and New Hope
Holdings purchased the Port
Lucaya Marina from fellow
investor Erik Christiansen, the
latter now having been appoint-
ed Port Group Ltd chair.
Sources suggested the initial
purchase price was around $26
million, but Mr Christiansen lat-
er dropped this to around $22
million.

Tribune Business also previ-
ously revealed that Mr Olsen:
and New Hope Holdings had .
been in talks with the GBPA
and Port Group Ltd to acquire
the six-acre Port Lucaya Mar-

Resort and Marina.

However, no progress was
made and these negotiations
yielded no fruit.

Hotels industry
‘very concerned’

@ By CARA BRENNEN-
BETHE
Tribune Business
Reporter

THE Bahamas Hotel Asso-
ciation (BHA) has moved from
being ‘cautiously optimistic’ to
being ‘very concerned’ about
the ability of its members to sur-
vive the current economic cli-
mate, its president saying it feels
it has at least another six to nine
months before things look bet-
ter.

In an interview following the
opening ceremony of BHA’s
trade show and expo, Russell
Miller said: “No sense trying to
sugar coat it or paint a picture
that is not realistic - these are
tough times. Some people may
not get through these times. We
hope it will not get to that, but
these are difficult times.”

Mr Miller said the BHA was
particularly concerned about
the smaller Bahamian hotels,
who were challenged by oper-
ating costs and limited
resources.

With many properties decid-
ing to limit work weeks or

Yer endy ie

reduce staff, Mr Miller said that
they are being urged to embrace
creativity and marketing initia-
tives to make things better.

“It’s the reality of the busi-
ness. We try to educate our peo-
ple for times that are coming
that will not be as productive. In
a lot of situations they go back
to the classroom and improve
on services and training, so that
when the economy is more
encouraging, they are ready,”
Mr Miller said.

“It is a difficult time and the
unfortunate thing is that it is
affecting everyone in a global
sense. It is across the board, and
I think the way we get through
this is the service we offer.”

Mr Miller said people will
continue to travel, even if not in
the numbers they did before,
and good service will bring
them back.

“We’ve got to continue to”

work with the Ministry of
Tourism, but this will probably
take us at least six to nine
months to get over this. We will
get through it,” he added.
Speaking about the Trade
Show, Mr Miller said it provid-

“Despite what may be

He agreed that new cars
were “big ticket items” and
among the first products to
feel the recessionary chill, but
pointed out that ‘in the

Bahamian context “it’s a’

necessity, because we don’t
have public transport like in
other countries. So people
depend on their cars”.

There is also likely to have
been a shift away from new
cars to used cars, which are
relatively cheaper for hard-
pressed consumers and seen
as giving greater value for
money.

Yet Mr Lowe did not feel
that increased competition
from the used car market was
having a major impact on new
car sales, describing the two
markets as “completely dif-
ferent”.

He added that used cars had
a shorter life expectancy, hav-
ing already been driven for a
number of years, and also
caused greater pollution.

said.

He explained that Gencom
intends to pursue every option
to find financing, and in partic-
ular is looking at several Cana-
dian and British banks.

“We are talking to some

Canadian and British banks.
Some of these have purchased
other banks. Barclays‘just
bought out some parts of
Lehman, so there are conver-
sations happening across the
board. We are looking at every
possible option,” Mr Miller
added.
* While Mr Miller said it was
unclear how long. securing the
necessary financing will take,
or how long the Ritz-Carlton
Rose Island development will
be affected, Gencom will con-
tinue with the first phase of the
project.

“We will continue with the
work we are doing on Rose
Island, which is with the marina.
That is huge and was the right
thing for us to do at the first
stage of the project. It adds at
least a $ 40-50 million price tag:
to the project and we will con-
tinue to do it,” Mr Miller said.

revenues behind

the Government’s finances as
it is traditionally the period
when some 60 per cent or more
of revenues are collected, coin-
ciding with the tourism sector
peak in the first quarter.

Adding that government
spending was “within limits”
and the administration did not
“have any concerns” on this
issue, Mr Laing said: “What we
are trying to do is move forward
with the infrastructure projects
of government, so we are try-
ing to accelerate capital spend-
ing.”

With government spending
accounting for a significant per-
centage of the Bahamian econ-
omy’s annual gross domestic
product (GDP), the Govern-
ment has to move quickly to
cushion the blow to tourism and
other industries from the US
downturn and global credit
crunch.

Among the key projects are
the $450 million Lynden Pin-
dling International Airport
(LPIA) pee eaa $131

million New Providence Road
Improvement Project; govern-
‘ment housing project, which is
being financed from $75 million
worth of Bahamas Mortgage
Corporation bonds; and the
construction of government
office complexes.

Represent

“They would represent a
means of providing some addi-
tional injection into the econo-
my at a time when things are
slowing, so we intend to move
those projects along,” Mr Laing
said.

“They provide prospects for
construction jobs, which in turn
provide for a great deal of mon-
ey to flow to various parts of
the economy.”

Mr Laing said a key indicator
of how the Bahamas, and in
particular its tourism/hotel
industry, had been impacted by
the latest Wall Street meltdown
and subsequent $700 billion
‘bailout’ package would “ with-
out question” be the occupancy
and room rate numbers

VACANCY
FOR A GENERAL MANAGER

achieved during the ‘Phanksgiv
ing and Christmas holiday peti-
ods.

Asked whether the Govern-
ment agreed with the Central
Bank of the Bahamas’ assess
ment that revenue collections
were likely to be negatively
impacted by global events and a
Bahamian economic downturn,
Mr Laing replied: “For the
moment, we’re just maintain
ing vigilance in respect of our
performance. We're constantly
reviewing what is happening
with revenue trends.

“At the moment, we don’t
have any major concerns, but
we’re watchful. It’s safe to say
that in quarter one of next year,
we will certainly have a better

idea of what the outlook will be

for the next 12 months.”

In an economic downturn,
there is generally less spending
by businesses and consumers
on imported goods. This, in
turn, generally leads to a reduc
tion in revenue for the Govern-
ment, as some 60 per cent of its
revenues are obtained from
duties imposed on imports.

Yet Mr Laing said it was
“hard to tell” what the precise
impact of the $700 billion
‘bailout’ package would be for
the US financial system, wider
economy and the consumer.
and whether thus might encour
age persons to travel again.

He pointed out that its effects
would start to be felt in the
fourth quarter, in the run up to
the Christmas shopping season
and peak travel period for
Americans.

BUSINESS

JS Johnson ‘impacted
| more than anticipated’
y economy

Yet Mr Bethell said: “We do
expect some impact from Ike
on ICB’s results, but don’t think
the result will be severe enough
to put ICB into a negative posi-
tion. We still expect ICB to turn
a profit at the end of the year,
but it will not be as good as last
year.”

ICB has become particularly
important to BISX-listed J.S.
Johnson’s financial perfor-
mance, boosting the latter’s
profits still further in years
when it is not impacted by hur-
ricane-related claims and pay-
outs.

For the 2008 first half ICB
has again played a key role,
helping to minimize the impact
of a 31 per cent reduction in
net income at J.S. Johnson’s
core agency and brokerage
business with a 6 per cent prof-
its rise of its own. +

While the agency and bro-
kerage business saw net income
fall year-over-year to $2.252
million, compared to $3.22 mil-
lion in 2007, ICB’s profits rose
from $1.221 million to $1.303
million.

“With the economy the way it
is, | guess there’s no surprise
that income is under some pres-
sure,” Mr Bethell told Tribune
Business. “The impact was a lit-
tle bit more than we had antic-
ipated at that time of the year.”

He added that J.S. Johnson
was optimistic that it could
“reverse” some of the year-on-
year net income decline during
the third quarter, the fallout
from the latest Wall Street
financial collapse was likely to
have put paid to any hopes of
catching up to 2007’s full-year



performance in the fourth quar-
ter.

Mr Bethell said J.S. Johnson’s
agency and brokerage business
had been impacted by both a
reduction in new business
inquiries and a slowdown in
premium renewals as a result
