31-year-old ran from
attackers, turned away help

A 31-YEAR-OLD man beat-
en and stabbed in Mason Addi-
tion, Nassau, ran from his attack-
ers and turned away help from
neighbours before he died in an
unnamed alley on Tuesday night.

Jean Sitney, who frequented
the area in Nassau’s inner city,
was found dead at 8pm on Tues-
day, having sustained traumatic
injuries all over his body.

Neighbours said they tried to
help him as he ran from attack-
ers, but he continued to move,
worsening his state.

They suid Mr Sitney had suf-
fered from mental health issues
and he is thought to have been at
Sandilands Rehabilitation Centre
earlier that day.

“He had a freak-out,” one
neighbour told The Tribune.

“T don't know if he might have
said something to someone in
the street, but a fight broke out
between him and some people
where he was beaten and
stabbed.

“He ran from the scene, he
was still alive, and people said
the ambulance took forever to
get there, and that he might have
lived if the ambulance came on
time.

“Some of the Haitian people
in the community tried to. help
him and hold him still, but he
wouldn’t keep still, so he suc-
cumbed to his injuries and died
there."

Sandilands would not confirm
whether Mr Sitney was a mental
health patient at the facility.

Princess Margaret Hospital
ambulance department was
unable to inform The Tribune of
the time the ambulance was
called, or when it arrived at the
scene.

Police continuing to investi-
gate the matter were uncertain
yesterday of any details of Mr
Sitney’s family or permanent
address, although he is. known
to have frequented Mason Addi-
tion.

Assistant Supt Walter Evans
said: “Police are investigating to
ascertain the motive for this inci-
dent. Three persons, including
one male and two females, are
being questioned by police in
connection with this matter.”

Anyone with any information
that may assist inquiries should
call the Central Detective Unit
on 322-4444 or call Crimestop-
pers anonymously on 328-8477.

Police warning over
danger on the Internet

m@ By CHESTER ROBARDS
Tribune Staff Reporter



POLICE are warning individuals to protect
themselves against Internet predators and not to
engage in illegal activity over the Internet.

This comes after several people, including Obie
Ferguson, president of the Trade Union Con-

gress, Dr Sandra Dean Patterson, director of the -

Women’s Crisis Centre and Dr Desiree Cox, for-
mer head of the Urban Renewal Programme,
have in some way been victims of scams on the
Web. :

During a press conference at Police Head-
quarters, Dr Cox recounted how family and
friends around the world panicked after receiving
and e-mail from her Hotmail account asking for
money to be wired to her in Africa. The false
message alleged that Dr Cox had become strand-
ed with no passport while on a HIV charity mis-
sion.

“It’s a kind of crime that affects people like
me who operates outside of the Bahamas or oper-

ates internationally. These people also seem to be ,

able to target whether this is somebody who has
influence and to go for the particular e-mail and
the particular contacts where they think the influ-
ence is and to shape an e-mail that looks platsi-
ble,” said Dr Cox.

Detective Sergeant Mark Anthony Barrett of
the Cyber Crimes Unit said that Internet crimes
should immediately be reported to an Internet
service provider or the police.

He said criminals engage in things like:

e cyber defamation — posting things on the





Inagua’s flamingo, Bahama parrot
populations survive Hurricane Ike

Internet with the intent to bring disrepute | te
someone’s character

° phishing — developing a fake website in order
to acquire passwords

happy slapping —-when unsuspecting victims
are attacked, filmed, and the images are posted on
the Internet

“Never open an e-mail from someone you don’t
know,” said Det Sgt Barrett. “People send these.
chain mails saying, if you don’t forward this e-mail
to 10 persons you will receive three months of bad
luck — bunch of rubbish.

“These people capture these e-mail accounts
and run encryption devices on them until they get
a password and that’s how they hack into these e-
mail accounts.”

He said individuals should always look out for
pornographic material and especially stay away
from child pornography.

“Tt is an offence and there is criminal liability as
it relates to that,” he said.

‘We do have the capability and we do have
the capacity to deal with these individuals and let.
this serve as a warning. .

“If you do, we are able to track you down and
bring you before the courts.”

“We have a relationship with our counterparts
~ urthe- region, in particular the FBI, and within the
. CARICOM nations we share information as it
relates to cyber crime.’

Assistant Commissioner of Police Hulan Han-
na told reporters that even though “we have not
been seeing an alarming number” of these kinds

. of incidents, people in the community are still
being “duped.”

THE Bahamas National Trust _ ry Nixon and Randolph Burrows
announced that following ground determined that the mangroves
and aerial surveys, it is satisfied in the upper area of Lake Rosa

that the flamingo and parrot pop-
ulations on Inagua were not sig-
nificantly impacted by Hurricane
Ike.

Following the storm, environ-
mentalists.and.bird lovers were
particularly concerned about the
endangered Bahama Parrot,
which was said to be at risk of
starvation because Ike was like-
ly to have destroyed its normal
food source. -

An immediate post-storm
reconnaissance by wardens Hen-

and large areas of coppice were
green and appeared in relatively
good condition, the BNT said.
“Some dead birds were seen,

but it appears that most of the
flamingo population (which
numbers tens of thousands in the
breeding season) and the parrot
population (which totals over
8,000 birds) managed to survive.
While the trees were stripped of
fruit, parrots were found foraging
on the ground within a day or
two of the storm's passage,” said

Post-hurricane studies in Aba-

cycle of the parrots. It can take

two years for the parrots to

resume normal breeding pat-

terns. -

The BNT said while it appre-
ciates offers to provide interim
feed for wildlife on Inagua,
experts say this is neither neces-
sary nor desirable, as it may
cause the birds to rely on humans
for food.

The statement added: “Inagua -
is still a disaster zone — with roads ©
washed out and homes and infra-
structure damaged. The BNT is
working with our president,
Glenn Bannister, and Morton
Salt to help the community
recover. We-have placed flamin-
go expert Dr Nancy Clum and
parrot biologist Caroline Stahala
on full alert and they will be dis-
patched to the Inagua National °
Park as soon as it is practicable to

conduct a more detailed ;

post-storm assessment of the |
bird populations.

“In the case of the parrots, this
will include estimates of damage
to the coppice and available for-
aging for the birds, and the status
of nesting habitat. ‘

“Parrots on Inagua tend to

nest in dead and hollowed-out »

trees. If this habitat has been
severely impacted we. will
explore scientifically sound
methodologies for supplement-
ing nest cavities, which may
include the use of nest boxes.”

Speaking with The Tribune yes-
terday at the British Colonial
Hilton, Mr Vanderpool-Wallace
said that the information gathered
will enable his ministry to know
exactly what kind of experience
tourists are getting at each of the
hotels and resorts.

This information, he said, will
allow the ministry to point out to
the respective properties what they
are doing wrong and advise them.to
fix the problem.

The hotels and resorts which
receive negative visitor reports will
then be given the chance to rectify
any aspect of their services which
are dissatisfactory to tourists.

However, should those hotels

and resorts fail to correct the prob- ,

lems, then reports of the negative
experiences that visitors had at a

visitors’ ‘good and

property will be published in the
media through the “Voice of the
Visitor.”

Mr Vanderpool-Wallace empha-
sised that this is a very new practice,
which to his knowledge is not being
used anywhere else in the world.

“We're going to do something
very risky, we’re going to talk about
publishing something called “The
Voice of the Visitor.” Let the peo-
ple and the community know what
the visitors are saying about their
experience and what they can do
to make sure that they guard that
experience.

“We want the Bahamian people
to be involved, (so) tell them sta-
tistically and anecdotally what is
going on and what they need to do
in terms of helping us,” he said
speaking during the “Meet the Min-
ister” forum yesterday afternoon.

Nadine Sawyer, accounts man-

offering a free shred day today on
RM Bailey Park.

“People can bring their personal

BHA and ‘endorsement’ proposal

WE WERE alarmed to hear former,

tourism minister Obie Wilchcombe raise the
Bahamas Hotel Association’s endorsement
proposal in the House of Assembly last
Wednesday. We thought this had been put to
rest in 1991, although it did have the audaci-
ty to raise its ugly head again in 1998, only to
be again crushed and given the boot.

We are sorry, but no matter what fancy
wings they give this baby, she won’t fly in
the Bahamas. The trickle down effect of such
a policy, if once established, will hurt too
many Bahamians in various businesses —
especially those businesses exclusively
reserved for Bahamians in which foreigners
are not meant to dabble.

Now, according to what Mr Wilchcombe
told the House, there must be new people
in the Association with no memory of the
past. He told the House that the. BHA is

again trying to resurrect the old endorsement

policy.

Mr Wilchcombe laid documents on the
table of the House so that members can
“ensure that this does not happen again.”

“It has to do with the fact that the
Bahamas Hotel Association is again asking
for an endorsement from — or pay back of

sorts —— which was described at the time as -

extortion, asking for Dupuch Publications to
provide them with a payment for any
endorsement and for use of the book ‘Wel-
come Bahamas’ in their properties,” Mr
Wilchcombe said. “All the hotels are being

told not to even consider the company unless.

they do so. Mr Speaker, that was raised
before and we met with the Dupuch group
before on this matter and now it’s back again.
“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 the
Dupuch Publications, then it goes to the taxi
drivers, the vendors, it goes to all. You can’t
do that,” said Mr Wilchcombe, to which a
seated MP commented: “You need to stop
them!”

However on Monday the BHA took strong
exception to Mr Wilchcombe’s statement. It
denied it was attempting to introduce a gen-
eral endorsement programme. It said it had
planned to levy a small fee on Dupuch Pub-
lications to give it the exclusive right to place
its “Welcome” magazine in all of its hotel
rooms. This, it said, would not exclude other
publishers trom distributing their materials as
they presently do in public areas within the
hotels. However, the Dupuch publication
would have exclusivity in each hotel room

for a fee. Proceeds from any partnership with

a publisher would be used to support educa-
tion and environmental projects with young
people, said the BHA.

When the matter came up in 1991 it was
pointed out that payment of endorsement
fees of any kind to the BHA would set a dan-
gerous precedent enabling the BHA to
endorse all other products and/or services
that did business with the hotels, including but
not limited to tour operators, activities, attrac-
tions, stores, printers, taxi drivers, ground
transportation companies and grocers.

On September 26, 1991 Sir Orville Turn-
quest wrote a legal opinion on BHA’s
endorsement policy based on what was being
proposed that year. He said in part:

“It is clear from the letters that the Direc-
tors of the Bahamas Hotel Association and
the members who comply with the letter dat-
ed June 5, 1991 have combined in pursuance
of an agreement to extort payment from firms
which supply products and services to guests
at hotels in the Bahamas which hotels are

* members of the Bahamas Hotel Association.

“It is submitted that this combination is a
combination wilfully to do an act causing
damage to, inter alia, Dupuch Publications.
Further, this combination is unlawful and
upon the occasion of damage to Dupuch Pub-
lications is actionable as a conspiracy.”

The 1991 legal opinion continued at length
pointing out that “apart from any illegality,

_ this new endorsement policy of the Bahamas

Hotel Association is immoral and against
public policy.”

As far as we understand, the idea of this
endorsement policy was started in St Thomas,
US Virgin Islands. It was Americans deal-
ing with Americans. Here in the Bahamas
these hotels are foreign owned. They are no
longer on US territory, but on foreign soil
which excludes them from having any part in
certain businesses that are to be held exclu-
sively by Bahamians.

Daily we hear Bahamians, especially
young Bahamian business persons, complain
that they are being marginalised in their own
country by these big foreign conglomerates.
Resentment is growing. This is neither good
for these foreign companies, nor is it good for
Bahamians.

These companies are needed in the

B »hamas, they are even welcomed, but their

- managers have to show some wisdom. They

have to extend a hand of friendship and coop-
eration to the community if there is to be

i harmony.

Learning from
‘The duck and
the devil’

EDITOR, The Tribune.

Thank you for allowing us
space in your most valuable col-
umn to share once more. We
would like to open by sharing a
story entitled “The duck and the
devil” that was passed on to us
and is most suitable for this pu! -
lication. Here we go.

There was a little boy visiting
his grandparents on their farm
who was given a sling shot to play
with in the woods. He practised in
the woods but could never seem
to hit the targets. Getting a little
discouraged he headed back for
dinner.

On his way in he saw grand-
ma’s pet duck. Just out of impulse
he pulled his sling back and let it
fly hitting the duck square in the
head and killing it.

He was shocked and grieved.
In a panic he hid the dead duck in
the woodpile only to see his sister
watching. Sally said nothing.
After lunch the next day grandma
said, “Sally let’s wash the dish-
es,” but Sally replied grandma,
Johnny told me he wanted to help
in the kitchen. Then she whis-
pered to him, remember the.
duck! So Johnny did the dishes,
after that day grandpa asked i.f
the children wanted to go fishin.g
and grandma said, “I’m sorry but
I need Sally to help make sup-
per.” Sally just smiled and said,
“Well that’s all right because
Johnny told me he wanted to
help.” She whispered again
“remember the duck”, so Siilly
went fishing and Johnny stayed
to help. After several day's of
Johnny doing both his chores, and
Sally’s, he finally couldn’t stand it
any longer. He came to gravidma
knelt and confessed that hic ha
killed her duck. Grandma. knelt
down, gave him a hug anid said
“sweet heart, I know. Youi see, I
was standing at the window and I
saw the whole thing. But tvecause
I love you, I forgave you, but I
was just wondering how long you
would let Sally make a slave of
you.” In its conclusion we learnt
that the moral of this story is
whatever is in your past, no mat-
ter what you may have clone, just
as Jehovah God uses people to
edify, encourage and uplift you,
there are people in this world who
allow the devil to use them to try
to keep you down anc] make you
feel inferior by throwing your past
in your face, be it lying, cheating,
debts, drugs, hatred, incarcera-
tion, anger, abuse, etc. It reminds
us that Jehovah God was standing
at the window and like Grand-
ma, He too saw the whole thing
and still desires to use you.

Wow! How enlightening. we
can all rest assure that Jehovah
God is doing His part. Now we
are asking our governments (both
of them) to do their part. What
we are trying to find out is, if our

goverriing parties are interested in
our cirime situation and us as a
peopl,e and how far are they will-
ing ty go to meet us or will they
harden their hearts and treat us
like Sally did Johnny.

We are coming clean, many
have fallen on the way to maturi-
ty ‘and many know their stories
and are willing to restore them
ba.ck in society. Sure we see the
programmes and hear the nice
sj»eeches and talk shows, oh and

let’s not forget your hugs and acts

of love and affection you show to
us and our families during elec-
tion campaigns.

It hurts our hearts that after
elections, these same politicians

who sat on our porch, eat out our

dirty house, hug our jungles
daughters and sent our sons with
the bad police record to win over
his posse/gangs on the parks, now
they don’t care to be seen near
your house and you are not
allowed to see them even with
appointments.

Well, Mr Government and Mr
Opposition, you say you can’t do
your job and be in the communi-
ty every day. Let us interject here,
even now it’s being said by some
of you that you only checking for
your constituency and you don’t
know why Mr or Mrs So and So
sent us to you because you only
have jobs for your own. We take
this time to remind you, that you
are judged by the words that
come out of your mouth, and the
same people you passed on your
way up, it’s only a matter of time
before you, or your colleagues,
are back in these people’s homes.

You may help my sister in Sea
Breeze, but because you disre-
spected my brother, mom, uncle
or friend in Fox Hill, Bain Town
or Kemp Road, you will be sur-
prised when the bush crack and
man is gone.

Please let’s learn to treat all
Bahamians with respect because
we are all connected.

Please stop giving people the
run-around and playing with their
emotions, if you will not assist
them just say so, you will reap
what you sow.

What we would like to see this
government do, however, is cre-
ate a three-strike programme.
Recall all those police records
and go over them with the mind-
set to really be the government of
a second chance.

Those who were convicted of a
crime over twenty years ago and
have never been in any major
court problem since, give them a
clean slate and a new lease on life
to enjoy with their children or

grandchildren. Those convicted
of a crime ten to fifteen years and
have yet to be in a court, but are

* making a positive contribution to

society give a clean slate and pro-
bation of five years should they
see the need to get caught up
again. Our young people that
sometimes get into heated argu-
ments and fight; or get caught
with two marijuana joints or
more, or are being misused by
others to sell their drugs, let’s
look at some probation. Let’s be
considerate and look at some
strategic record three to five
years.

Let’s say the second offence
for a period of eight to twelve
years and if a third time for a peri-
od of, let’s say, fifteen years or
more, or even the discretions of
the courts.

Mr Prime Minister, members
of parliament and members of
the senate, to be honest with you,
many of us have a problem with
you all making new laws and set-
ting penalties for the same rea-
sons we are disappointed when
our Prime Ministers send single
people to our homes to represent
our constituency.

That reason is you cannot truly
appreciate or identify the true
meaning of the family and we the
struggling man will become a
bother to you.

All because you cannot, will
not or refuse to come down to
his level. Even now with this our
plea, we know we will be met by
those who refuse to hear our
hearts and choose to make light
of our situation. But let them
have a child that is imprisoned
for defending himself, or a child
that cannot join in on family vaca-
tions because of a record that is
there for the rest of his life.

Then there is the mom, dad,
aunts and uncles who would love
to attend college graduations,
men and women who are profes-
sionals, ministers, and business
people, but cannot travel, not
because of a problem with the
rest of the world, but rather
because their very own people,
specifically our government’s
refusal to believe in them and
give them a second chance, How
sad.

We pray you stay tuned as we
prepare to set a day of march
once a year leading to the next
election, in our efforts to get the
government to show their part in
this area of what they are daily
attempting to teach our children,
called Conflict Resolution.

Let’s free up some of our par-
ents so they can travel with their ©
families.

Thank you for your time and
have a blessed week.

PLP meetings on ‘failed leadership’ crisis

0 In brief

Bank employees
charged with
$50,000 theft

TWO employees of First
Caribbean Bank accused of
stealing $50,000 were arraigned
in a Magistrate’s Court yester-
day. Leslie Brian Bethel, 48, of
Sea Breeze Estates along with
Charles Mcphee, 25, of Fox Hill

According to court dockets it
was alleged that the two men,
while being concerned together
on Tuesday July 22, stole from
First Caribbean International
Bank on Shirley Street, cash in
the amount of $50,000. Both
men pleaded not guilty to the
charge and opted to stand trial
in Magistrate’s Court.

The prosecution made no
objection to bail being granted
to the accused and both men
were granted bail in the sum of
$10,000. The case has been

BEGINNING tonight, the
Progressive Liberal Party will
be holding a series of meetings
throughout the country to dis-
cuss the current economic con-

ditions and the crisis of “failed '

leadership”, PLP chairman
Glenys Hanna-Martin
announced yesterday.
Beginning at 7pm tonight at
the Lynden Pindling Centre on
Farrington Road, the meeting
will feature such speakers as
PLP leader Perry Christie,
leader of opposition business in

the House of Assembly Dr:

Bernard Nottage, MP for West
End and Bimini Obie, Wilch-
combe, and the MP for Fort
Charlotte Alfred Sears.

Mrs Hanna-Martin called a
press conference yesterday to
inform the public of this new
initiative, and also to respond
to FNM chairman Johnley Fer-
guson, who recently criticised
the PLP for doing little but
“exacerbate political tensions
along party lines”.

Calling Mr Ferguson “grossly
out of touch” with the hardships
that Bahamians are facing, Mrs
Hanna-Martin reminded the
chairman that when the FNM

took office in May 2007 the

country had a “booming econ-
omy”.

Since then, she said, the gov-
ernment has set about revers-
ing many of the advances the
PLP had left in place.

Mrs Hanna-Martin added
that in just 17 months, Bahami-
ans “in large and unprecedent-
ed numbers” have been forced
to resort to welfare to meet sim-
ple “basic needs”.

“Construction projects which
would have employed thou-
sands have been either delayed
or stopped altogether.

“In at least one case it can be
legitimately argued that this
government has chased away a
potential investor thereby com-
promising a major investment
on the Cable Beach strip.

“Important social initiatives
in vulnerable communities have
been stopped.

“How can we forget all those
Bahamians who were fired
when the FNM took office?
One must wonder how many of

those persons, now form the
army of long lines of people
seeking help at the offices of

vices,” she said.

Mrs.Hanna-Martin added
that while the “out of touch
chairman — Johnley Ferguson —
complains about a past PLP
government moving slowly, he
should be reminded that his
party has formed the govern-
ment for 11 of the last 16 years.

“Today with the largest cabi-
net in Bahamian history we are
facing the worst times in our
country’s history with condi-
tions slipping rapidly.

FREEPORT - Families for

Justice is vehemently opposed °

to the Plea Bargain Bill that gov-
ernment is seeking to pass into
law without, it claims, any
thought for the victims of seri-
ous crimes and their families.

Founder Rev Glenroy Bethel
and the families of murder vic-
tims in Freeport expressed their
disapproval of the bill during a
press conference held at Zion
Baptist Church yesterday.

“We say no to the bill...and
the injustice this bill, if passed,
will bring to thousands of victims

sand their families in this coun-

AWA GUTIM STEN ARLE gH

THE Bahamas Humane Society has
created a special award — the Betty



try,” he said.

Rev Bethel said the bill bene-
fits accused persons by lessening
their sentences and allowing
them to be released back into
society to commit other crimes
after serving much less time in
jail.

He said that many Bahamian
people do no know about the
Plea Bargain Bill, what it is and
what it seeks to do if passed into
law.

The Plea Bargain Bill was
introduced in Parliament in June
by Prime Minister Hubert Ingra-
ham. The Bill — described as a
landmark bill — seeks to create a

legislatively based plea bargain .

system for the first time in the
Bahamas.

Kenning B-Humane award — to recog- |

nise individuals who have given unusu-
al service above and beyond the normal
call of duty to the animals of the coun-
try, BHS president Kim Aranha

announced.

“There are many people in this
nation who have given huge parts of
their lives to the betterment of condi-
tions for animals in the Bahamas. They
are truly our ‘unsung heroes’. This [
award has be specifically created to
honour them for their outstanding com- [
passion and dedication to animals,”

Mrs Aranha said.

The criteria for the Betty Kenning B-
Humane award is to be a person who is truly dedicated to improving the
lives of animals in the Bahamas, the BHS said.
“When being nominated, the person submitting the nomination
must be able.to list all the good works done that have contributed to

improving the animal situation here.

“We are really hoping that the general public will take the time to
nominate persons known to them that work hard and tirelessly and get
little or no recognition. Most of the dedicated animal people here in the
Bahamas do their good work purely for the love of God’s creatures and
do not expect thanks. We think it is nice to publicly recognise them.

“We know that they are happy with just a lick and a wag, or a purr and
a tweet, but they deserve a lot more than that,” the Humane Society said.

The Betty Kenning B-Humane award is designed to give a “big
thank you” to the people from the Bahamas Humane Society on behalf
of the animals who have been saved and helped.

‘Luc award will be presented at the Bahamas Humane Society’s ball
on November 15, held at the British Colonial Hilton.

Persons wishing to nominate somebody are asked to submit the
nomination in writing (250 words or more) to the Bahamas Humane
Society or by e-mail to bhscruelty@gmail.com.

All nominations will be reviewed by the board. Nominations deadline

is October 31 at 6pm.

, Families for Justice strongly —
B'S RASHiONs oppose the Plea Bargain Bill -

The bill is aimed at address-
ing the rising backlog of criminal
cases and rising crime rate in the
Bahamas.

Plea bargaining involves pros-
ecuting officers in conjunction
with a defence attorney offering
a deal or agreement to accused
individuals as an incentive for
the accused to plead guilty in an
effort to avoid the need for trial,
but more often ensure a convic-
tion.

Although lauded as a “revo-
lutionary concept” by the gov-
ernment, the Families for Justice
leader describes it as “injustice”
to law-abiding citizens.

“Tt is a clear violation of every

law-abiding citizens’ constitu-
tional rights,” said Rev Bethel.
The government, Attorney Gen-
eral and every law enforcement
agency in the Bahamas has a
sworn duty, according to the con-
stitution, to protect its citizens.

“We are calling on the gov-
ernment to legislate stiffer penal-
ties for rape, armed robbery,
murder, and all serious crimes
that are committed in this coun-
try,” he said.

Gloria Vardoulis, Sally Var
doulis and Irene Vardoulis, the
mother, wife, and sister, respec-
tively, of a murdered business-
man Konstantino Vardoulis, said
the government should get input
from victims’ families before
introducing such bills to parlia-
ment, and passing laws that do
not take into consideration the

feelings of victims and their fam- ©

ilies.

“T don’t think that MPs really
know what it is like losing a loved
one to murder,” said Sally Var-
doulis.

Bethel said that Families for
Justice will agitate relentlessly
against the Bill and other leg-
islative injustices in the Bahamas,
including the granting of bail to
persons accused of murder.

Bridgette Grant and Charlene
Smith, the mothers of two of the
five missing boys, Monique
Bethel, the mother of murdered
16-year-old Rishawn Bethel, and
the Vardoulis family believe it is
unfair to families that persons
accused of murder are released
back in society where they some-
times commit other crimes while
awaiting trial.



Woman pleads
guilty to drug
charges

A WOMAN has pled guilty
to drug charges related to the
seizure of over a pound of
cocaine.

Laranda Dorie Charlton,
23, appeared before Chief
Magistrate on Tuesday where
she pleaded guilty to drug
charges stemming from the
seizure of 1.2 pounds of
cocaine. Charlton was
arraigned on Monday along
with Harvey Marcian Kerr, 34,
of Tropical Gardens and

i -Travetha Pyfrom, 28, with

conspiracy to possess cocaine
with the intent to supply, con-
spiracy to export cocaine, tak-
ing preparatory steps to
export cocaine and possession
of cocaine with the intent to
supply.

It is alleged that the accused
committed the offenses on
October 3. All of the accused
initially pleaded not guilty to
the charges.

Charlton however changed
her pleas on Tuesday. She was
fined $6,000. Failure to pay
the fine will result in a six
month prison sentence. Kerr
and Pyfrom have both been
granted bail in the sum of
$10,000. The case has been
adjourned to October 15.

@ A 28-year-old man was
arraigned in a Magistrate’s
Court yesterday on fraud
charges.

According to court dockets,
it is alleged that Yonnic
Mazuir of Miami Street, on
several days between May 1
and September 17, made false
entries on Purity Bakery time
sheets to show that Orlando
Barnett worked a total of
930.05 hours.

It is further alleged that
between May 1 and Septem-
ber 17, Mazuir, while
employed at Purity Bakery at
Market Street, stole
$4,246.16.

Mazuir, who appeared
before Magistrate Guillimena
Archer at Court Nine in Nas-
sau Street, pleaded not guilty
to the charges and was grant-
ed bail in the sum of $5,000
with one surety.

The case has’ been
adjourned to November 21.

Would-be Harbour Island visitors

are warned about powercuts

WOULD-BE winter visitors to
Harbour Island are being warned
in advance that powercuts could
ruin their stay.

Blackouts are now so much
part of island Jife that businesses
fear a marked drop in tourist
trade.

Richard Malcolm, formerly of
Pink Sands, has written to would-
be guests at his tourist lodgings on
Briland warning them of possi-
ble power outages.

He has given them the chance .

to back out of their vacation
arrangements rather than having
to face their wrath later on.

Mr Malcolm.and his wife Lem-
mie have opted for a “total hon-
esty” policy rather than be
embarrassed by unhappy visitors.

In a circular letter, they say
they have waited until “the last
possible moment” to warn poten-
tial guests’ because they were hop-
ing something positive would hap-
pen before the official start of the
winter season on November 1.

Livelihood

“As far as we can determine,
nothing has,” they write, adding:
“It is never easy to have to deal
with negative situations concern-
ing one’s own héme and liveli-
hood.”

They continue: “However, in
all fairness to you, our visitors,
bread and butter, and our friends,
we feel it only fair to advise you
that a few comfort pitfalls may
affect you during your planned
visit to Harbour Island, especial-
ly here at the north end of the
island.

“The blame for the poor elec-
trical supply, planning, and future
approach cannot be placed on
any one organisation, person, or
administration.

“Basically, the rapid and seri-
ous overdevelopment of Harbour
Island has just out-stripped the
country’s ability to maintain cer-
tain infrastructure at the same
pace. Therefore, when the visitor

Businesses fear marked
drop in tourist trade



pressure, ie hotel guests, winter
resident house owners,
rental houses, marinas, etc begins
in another three or four weeks,
it is most probable that the elec-
tric supply will again be unable
to meet demands, as has been the
situation.”

To make the matter worse and
add further frustration, they say,
the electrical grid on the island
is arranged in such a way that any
attempt to shed or “share” a lim-
ited supply of electricity around
equitably is out of the question.

“The only way, BEC tells me,
to lighten the load on the island a
bit is to shut off the same two
rather small sections of the island
all the time. No sharing. We here,
north of the township, are in one

“When there is a problem, we
average about twice as much time
with no supply of electricity as
does most of the rest of the
island.

“Tt is most disconcerting late
at night to look toward the town-
ship, which is very visible from
our hilly location, and see it light-
ed up like a Christmas tree,
including street lights...and we
have nothing, no lights, no water,
or other electrical conveniences.

“In the past few months, we at
times had no electrical supply for
up to 10 and 12 hours at a time at
this end.

“Yes, we do have our own
GENERATOR, two as a matter
of fact, which between them can
supply electricity to our six build-
ings. We feel one of the reasons
that the electrical company is so
relaxed about sharing this end of
the island out of the power supply
is that many in the area do have
auxiliary generators. That is an
incorrect approach.

“Dependence on the aux gen-
erators is a ‘cop oul’. This equip-
ment, while expensive, is not
intended to run that much.

“They start to have problems
and, in fact, our new generator
($38,000 installed) has been out of
service for a couple months now
waiting on an integral part from
Chicago which has been very
hard, and expensive, to locate.

‘Problems

“We are certain to have it
repaired and on online shortly,
but note routine problems can be
expected to shut them down from
time to time, often for periods
waiting on parts or mechanics.

“The main point of all this is to
let you know that there is no way

will do our best, however. We
hope that will be sufficient.
Should any of you wish to cancel
your plans with us, while we hope
you do not, we will be under-
standing.

“On the other hand, some of
you may revert back to the old
days and consider this an adven-
ture!

“In which case you can join us
in your bathrobe at 3am running
around checking engines, load
factors, temps and so on!!

“After some 58 years being in
one form or another of the hos-
pitality business on Harbour
Island we have learned that the
best approach is to be up front
and totally honest with you.

“That is what we are doing
here and we find that normally
that approach turns what could
be a miserable situation into one

Cacique Awards funds
educational dreams

THE Cacique Awards,
known for honouring the
Bahamas’ highest tourism
achievers, is also making a
push for helping students
achieve educational goals
through the Cacique Scholar-
ship Fund. .

Each year, proceeds from
the Cacique Awards ceremo-
ny, a black tie affair, are chan-
neled into the scholarship
fund, which assists students in
pursuing college degrees.

Dennise Newton, the 2007 °

Cacique Scholarship recipi-
ent, recently paid a courtesy
call on the board of the
Cacique Awards programme.

Ms Newton, 21, graduated
from the College of the
Bahamas, where she studied
tourism and hospitality man-
agement.

While pursuing her Bache-
lor of Arts degree at COB,
she spent a semester abroad
at Holland College in Char-
. lottetown, Prince Edward
Island.

She said that her stay
abroad was a “phenomenal
experience” that provided her
with a sound education. She
hopes to further her educa-
tion and obtain an MBA with
a concentration in marketing

at Queens University in
Kingston, Ontario, Canada.

Ms Newton thanked the
executive board and said that
her dreams of further educa-
tion may not have been pos-
sible if it were not for the
Cacique Scholarship Fund.

When asked what advice
she would offer to those com-
ing after her, she said, “Keep
God first. Stay focused and
set your goals.”

Ms Newton now heads to
Dijon, France, for nine
months. While there, she will

FREEPORT - People
flocked to the Department
of Social Services on Tues-
day to receive government
assistance to help settle
their outstanding monthly
electricity bills.

A large number. of per-
sons waited on long lines
outside the Social Services
offices in the National
Insurance Building Com-
plex to see what assistance
they could get under the
new government relief pro-
gramme.

Paula Marshall, assistant
director of Social Services,
said due to the crisis in
Grand Bahama and the
recent power disconnec-
tions, many persons are
coming in to apply for relief
assistance to help pay their
bills.

“We are processing those
persons and at the same
time we are also dealing
with our normal monthly
distribution of food
coupons,” she told The Tri-
bune.

A single mother of three
said she has been struggling
to pay bills since losing her
job at a hotel.

additional assistance
extended to Bahamians is
needed at this hard time,”
she said.

Grand ‘Bahama residents
have been experiencing
tremendous financial hard-

-ship in the last few years as

a result of the downturn of
the island’s economy.

Tourism arrivals are
down, hotel occupancy lev-
els are low, and jobs are
scarce in Freeport.

The high cost of fuel,
gasoline, food, and
increased power rates have
impacted families and busi-
nesses.

In an effort to provide
some relief to struggling
Bahamians, Prime Minister
Hubert Ingraham intro-
duced a new government
relief programme to assist
families in New Providence
whose electricity was dis-
connected due to non-pay-
ment of bills.

On Friday, State Minister
of Finance Zhivargo Laing
and the Grand Bahama
Power ‘Company: vowed to
restore power, to, ‘some, 200°
consumers whose ‘electricity.
was disconnected.

The arrangement reached
between the government
and the Power Company
allows reconnected con-
sumers to enter into a pay-
ment plan with the compa-
ny.

Persons are required to
pay 25 per cent of what they
owe, and the reminder paid
over the next six months,
while continuing to pay the
current bill.

The government has also
agreed to subsidise the fuel
surcharge of GBPC to pro-
vide relief to Freeport con-
sumers.

Minister Laing noted that
from October to December
31, thé government will help
with any charge above 15
cents. The difference will be
paid by the government for
residents who consume no
more than 800kwh per
month. :

Mr Laing said persons
who are having difficulty
meeting the requirements of
the payment plan should
visit Social Services to see
if government relief can be
extended to them.

@ By FELIX F BETHEL

WHETHER for better or worse,
the fact remains that humanity is
today united..And for sure, it is a
fact that whe troubles break out in
one corer of the world, echo and
reverberation are sometimes felt
throughoutthe entire system.

This neatly explains how it now
comes to be that as troubles beset
the United States of America, they
roll out — wave after cruel wave — to
the rest of the world’s peoples and
places.

In other words, the world has
now become — as the saying goes —
our village. In another time, the
boundaries of our quaint little vil-
lages determined and defined the
extent of our known world.

As we can all now truly appreci-
ate nowhere is any longer far away.

There are times int life when those
who struggle for freedom know that
they struggle not against flesh and
blood, but against principalities,
powers and a myriad of evil forces.

In this vein, it is always so dread- ©

fully appalling when I stop and look
at what the greatest power in the
history of the world is doing ia
places like Iraq and in places lite
Cuba.

In the name of freedom, the
United States of America has »wn
the wind and is now reaping a vhirl-
wind of distress. And by thr ‘day,
the grim harvest of hunger, dsease
and death is being reaped. |

In this regard, please not that I
am told that as far back as fie early
sixties US policy towards Cuba was
clear, blunt and to the point: to
bring about hunger, despeation and
overthrow of governmett.

Forty nine years later that effort
continues. :

For my part, J am convinced that
Cuba is today like a ck that can-
not be moved.

_ And soit is today nat I also take
some note of some what some of
my friends in Oakknd California
have had to say atout five brave
Cubans who nowhappen to be
locked up in the United States.

These brothes and sisters of
mine are membes of an organisa-
tion that goes b’ the name, The
Peace and Freedm Party.

Incidentally,ihe names of the
Cuban men whaeare locked up hap-
pen to be: Geardo Hernandez,
Ramon Labafino, Antonio Guer-
rero, FernandcGonzalez and René
Gonzalez.

, Collectivel, they are known to..,

the world as ne Cuban Five.

that somehow and by some means —

that they be freed and returned to
their native land, Cuba.

I understand that I am joined in
this request by a number of Nobel
Laureates and other world celebri-
ties.

Archbishop Desmond Tutu just

_ happens to be one of these fine peo-

ple.

While I might have and perhaps
should have gone into some detail
cencerning who these men are and
why they happen to be locked up in
the United States of America, I will
not. .

What I propose to do is far sim-
pler; that being to share with you
the contents of a resolution that has
been made by some of my friends
who are living, working and strug-
gling in Oakland, California.

That I happen to be about the
same business in the Bahamas
makes these men and women my
brothers and sisters in a larger strug-
gle for bread, dignity and freedom
in this world that we must share.

And so we note the contents of a
resolution that has been made by
The Peace and Freedom Party.

They are convinced that:

e Whereas the US government
has financed, armed, and trained
Cuban right-wing extremists to con-
duct terrorist attacks against the
people of Cuba;

e Whereas 3,478 Cubans have

been killed by hundreds of terrorist
attacks, including bombings, assas-
sinations, biological warfare and
other sabotage, and more than 2,500
injured; :

e Whereas despite Cuba’s urg-
ing to the US government that it
take action to stop the terrorist plots
that emanate from U:S. soil, Wash-
ington has failed to thwart those
attacks;

e Whereas Gerardo Hernandez,

Ramon Labafiino, Antonio Guer- .

rero, Fernando Gonzalez and René
Gonzalez, known as the Cuban
Five, entered the United States in
the early 1990s to infiltrate the ter-
rorist organisations in order to mon-
itor their actions and prevent ter-
rorism against their compatriots;

ii a ee
Ministry aiming to cut costs for |
airlines flying to Bahamas from US

FROM page one

travel for Americans is a pillar of
the government’s new tourism
Strategy.

Mr Vanderpool-Wallace
revealed this during a special
video-recorded presentation,
tited “Revitalising Tourism”,
at the British Colonial Hilton
yesterday, due to be broadcast
later this week.

Asked if he has had a posi-
tive response from airlines to
this proposed move by the min-
istry, in terms of indications
that they would correspond-
ingly cut ticket costs and
increase flights, Mr Vander-
pool Wallace said: “Absolute-
ly.”

“We forget an airline is in

the business to make money
and any place that they can
make money, that is where
they want to fly. That’s some-
thing that I think is very impor-
tant for someone to under-
stand.

“What matters to many car-
riers is making sure that they
have the lowest possible cost
of operating in the Bahamas.
We need to address that.”

He suggested this could in
part be done by cutting back
on the tax that airlines pay to
the government when they land

“If (the airline) can fly a rel-
atively short distance given its
fuel costs and have a (profit)
yield which is quite good, it
would rather travel there than
half way around the world. So
the answer is yes, the airlines
that we have spoken to are
quite excited about this possi-
bility.”

He said he has met with
numerous airlines, who find the
ministry’s proposal “very
attractive”, and the organisa-
tion is at present working out

details of the offer it will make
to them.

However, although he said
the ministry has some “very
specific ways” of achieving this
reduction in costs to the air-
lines, with the hope that it will
have a knock-on effect on tick-
et prices, the minister would
not go into further detail about
how it will be achieved, for risk
of “revealing (it) to the rest of
the world.” |

Numerous US-based airlines
have raised their ticket prices,
reduced the frequency of their
flights to the Bahamas, or cut
back altogether from some US
destinations in view of
increased fuel costs.

Meanwhile, Mr Vanderpool-
Wallace said the ministry also
wants to bring down the cost

_ of travel to the Family Islands

— mainly undertaken by small-
er Bahamian operators.

The ministry believes the
cost of flights within the islands
of the Bahamas, in conjunction
with the idea that all the

°Pool Tiles

e Threshold

islands are very similar, has
been a major prohibitor of
greater travel to the Family
Islands.

He said a change in brand-
ing, which would see each
island marketed as a distinct
tourism product rather than
simply one more branch of the
Bahamas, and bringing down
the cost of inter-island travel,
are key to improving visitor
numbers.

Specifics of how a reduction
in the cost of travel to the
islands would be achieved were
again not detailed.

Mr Vanderpool-Wallace said
that in these tough economic
times, there is a silver lining
for the Bahamas.

“Whenever there is a reces-
sion (Americans) tend to tray-
el still but closer to home...we
think we are best positioned
compared to anyone else in the
region to take advantage in
terms of anyone who may be
thinking of travelling from
North America,” he said.

Mr Vanderpool-Wallace told
The Tribune there are “four or
five things” his ministry would
be doing to boost arrivals that
have “never been done anywhere
else in the world.”

However, the minister admit-
ted that he is prepared to quick-
ly scrap those particular initia-
tives if they do not have the
intended results.

ATG

The minister said improving
visitor experiences, ensuring trav-
el to and within the Bahamas is
of lower cost and higher quality,
delivering information about the
country “efficiently and effec-
tively” to potential visitors, bring-
ing the public and private sector
together, and keeping an eye on
the success of tourism initiatives
will be key to boosting tourism.

will involve marketing the coun-
try as a region, rather than as a
single destination, to ensure it
increases its share of the tourism
pie, said Mr Vanderpool-Wal-
lace. »

With “hyper competition” in
the tourism market, it is vital that
the Bahamas differentiates more
than ever between its numerous
far-flung islands so that tourists
get the feeling that they have
many different vacation options
in the Bahamas.

Mr Vanderpool-Wallace point-
ed out that there are many
Americans embarking on domes-
tic travel who do not realise how
close the Bahamas is. He empha-
sised that his ministry will pro-
mote “combination holidays” for
persons visiting other destina-
tions in the US to also come to
the Bahvmas.

“We're going to invite chem
over,” said Mr Vanderpool-Wal-
lace.

In the long-term, the minister
said, the Bahamas will be target-
ing new markets such as Brazil,
Russia, India and China in
addition to traditional visitor
sources, Europe, Canada and the
US.

priorities, eliminated ineffective
practices and reallocated funds
within the ministry’s budget.

Although there may be a
“period of mourning” for some
initiatives, the ministry had now
stopped funding for less effec-
tive, low priority projects and
redistributed the money to high
priority ones.

According to the minister,

when he and his colleagues ,

began strategising the way for-
ward they started by asking the
question: “If the Ministry of
Tourism did not exist today,
would we create it and what
would be its purpose?”

The answer to this, he said, is
that the ministry must identify

and attract potential visitors and\ }
once they are here, give them a:

“delightful experience” which
leaves them feeling compelled to
go home and tell people “it’s bet-
ter in the Bahamas.”

To reinforce this perception,

‘the ministry is considering send-

ing personal video e-mail mes-
sages from Mr Vanderpool-Wal-
lace himself to visitors once they
have returned home thanking
them for coming.

Mr . Vanderpool-Wallace
stressed the success of the plan
also depended on the commit-
ment of the Bahamian people at
large to improving visitors’ expe-
riences.

Rubie Nottage
FROM page one

would allow the law to “take its
course” on Mrs Nottage’s tenure.
He made no further comment on
the matter. : ,

Mr Barnett summed up pend-
ing additions to and retirements
from the judiciary, saying: “Jus-
tice Hepburn has just been
appointed to the Supreme Court.
bench, Justice © (Faizool)
Mohammed will retire from the
Supreme Court bench at the end
of this year, Justice (Rubie) Not-
tage will retire from the Supreme
Court bench, and I think next
year Justice (Cheryl) Albury will
retire so there will be vacancies

on the bench.

“So we have to make an evalu-
ation as to whether we need to
increase the number of judges or
whether we ought to maintain the
number of judges or whether
there is a need to reduce the num-
ber, I’m not sure - but all those
questions remain outstanding.”

Mr Barnett made these com-
ments as a guest on GFMS ‘Tell
It Like It Is’ hosted by former
attorney general Sean
McWeeney.

Mrs Nottage was appointed in
April amid controversy stemming
from a 1980’s court indictment
against her in the United States
on money-laundering charges,
which were raised in the 1984
Commission of Inquiry into drug
trafficking in the Bahamas. US
authorities never acted on the
indictment.

Critics argued that she should
not have been appointed until the
issue was cleared up, while sup-
porters rallied that she was qual-
ified for the job.

According to the constitution, a
justice’s term can be extended
until his or her 67th birthday by
the Governor General if the
prime minister recommends it,
after consultation with the leader
of the opposition.

_ A former vice-chairman of the
constitutional commission formed
under the former administration,
Mr Barnett said one of his biggest
regrets was that during the 2002
constitutional referendum

proposals to extend the age of

retirement for judges were reject-
ed.

“One of the things I really
regret from the last constitution
exercise that took place in 2002
was that the proposals to increase
the age of retirement were reject-
ed and if it weren’t caught up in

the:politics of th e, [believe
that; objectively senting Severy-

sd? would have Supported that
proposition...but that provision
of the constitution which provides
for the extension of the retire-
ment age from one date to anoth-
er was something that ought to
be changed...so my view is that
the age for retirement should be
increased and that the provision
for an extension should be abol-
ished.”

However, he added that the
issue of constitutional reform is



* not high on government’s agenda.

Currently, the age of retire-
ment for members of the
Supreme Court is 65 and 68 for
‘members. of the members of the
Court of Appeal. Court of
Appeal Justice Gatpansingh
retires this year and Justice Osad-
abey retires, I think, in the begin-
ning of next year.”

Mrs Nottage has previously
declined to speak to The Tribune
regarding her retirement. The Tri-
bune was unable to reach her for
comment yesterday.

San Salvador artisans encouraged
to form a craft association

SAN SALVADOR artisans

have been encouraged to form |

a craft association and tap into
the multi-million-dollar sou-
venir market.

Bahamas Agricultural and
Industrial Corporation (BAIC)
executive chairman Edison M
Key told them they had his
support in that quest.

He was speaking during a
graduation ceremony last
weekend for 60 San Salvadori-
ans who completed the BAIC
training course in straw, shell
and coconut craft.

Mr Key was accompanied by
BAIC general manager Ben-
jamin Rahming, Handicraft

* Development and Marketing

Department head Donnalee
Bowe, Bahamas National
Handicraft Association presi-
dent Melonie Thompson and
other BAIC personnel.

They were welcomed by
administrator Jordan Ritchie,
chief councillor Terrance
Major, San Salvador School
principal and regatta com-
modore Paul Turnquest, local
government officials and resi-
dents.

Trained by Eloise Smith
(straw), April Martin-Fox
(shell) and Howard Bevans
(coconut), the graduates cre-
ated a variety of products —
hats, bags, jewellery and table-
ware. They used ingredients
found at San Salvador.

“Yours is among the best we
have seen,” Mr Key told them.
“Tt is because of artists like you
that we are so proud of our
‘Made in the Bahamas’ label.”

He told them to do whatever

they can to ensure the success
of San Salvador’s tourism
product. |

“Tourists are an outlet to the
world for your products,” he
said. “Many of them may want

to take home memorabilia of

their visits here, and which
could inspire them to return.

“The more tourists come
here and even return, the big-
ger your prospective captive
market. And once quality is
your watchword, your product,
I am convinced, will be appre-
ciated.”

Mr Key urged them to form
an association through which

they can tap into markets else-
where.

“For example,” he said,
“there must be something we
can do to get San Salvador-
made souvenirs displayed in
the Bahamian people’s straw
market in downtown Nassau.

“Perhaps your association
can negotiate with the straw
vendors associations in Nassau
and help make our offerings
to our tourists once more over-
whelmingly Bahamian.”

Hotel operators, he said, are
often looking for uniquely
Bahamian experiences for their
guests.

“Yours is uniquely Bahami-
an, found nowhere else but
here,” he said.

Mr Key encouraged them to
take advantage of the internet
as a marketing tool.

“There is a huge market in
the souvenir industry,” he said.
“Many millions of dollars are
spent each year importing sou-
venirs for our tourists. We
must bring an end to that.
Some of those millions must
start flowing directly into your
pockets. For that, you have our
support at BAIC.”

' He invited them to be a part.
of the week of activities in Nas-
sau, beginning October. 26, set
aside to celebrate the arts and
crafts of the Bahamas.

The 11th annual BahamArts
Festival officially opens
on October 31 at 10am with
Prime Minister Hubert Ingra-
ham delivering the keynote
address.

m@ STOCKHOLM, Sweden

TWO Japanese citizens and
“an American won the 2008
Nobel Prize in physics on Tues-
day for discoveries that help
explain the behavior of the
smallest particles of matter,
according to the Associated
Press.

American Yoichiro Nambu,
87, of the University of Chicago,
won half of the 10 million kro-
nor (US$1.4 million) prize for
the discovery of.a mechanism
called spontaneous broken sym-
metry.

Makoto Kobayashi and
Toshihide Maskawa of Japan
shared the other half Of the
prize for discovering the origin
of the broken symmetry that
predicted the existence of at
least three families of quarks in
nature.

The academy said the trio
“presented theoretical insights
that give us a deeper under-
standing of what happens far
inside the tiniest building blocks
of matter.”

In physics, the idea of sym-
metry refers to a kind of equal-
ity or equivalence in a situation.
At the subatomic level, for
example, you should not be able
to tell whether you are watching
events unfold directly or in a
mirror, or whether a movie of
those events is running forward
or backward. And particles
should behave just like their
alter egss, called antiparticles.

If any of these rules is violat-
ed, the symmetry is broken.

One big broken symmetry
arose immediately after the big
bang, when just a tiny bit more
matter than antimatter was cre-
ated. Because these two kinds
of particles annihilate each oth-
er when they meet, that excess
of matter was responsible for
seeding the visible parts of the
universe.

Nambu _ introduced his
description of spontaneous sym-
metry violation into particle
physics in 1960.

The Nobel citation said Nam-
bu’s theories now permeate the
Standard Model of physics,
which is the basic theory of how
the universe operates. For
example, they help explain why
different particles have differ-

ent masses.

In 1972, Kobayashi and
Maskawa explained why an
experiment eight years before
had found that some subatomic
particles called kaons failed to
follow the rules of symmetry.
Their explanation predicted the
existence of three unknown
subatomic particles called
quarks. In fact, scientists dis-
covered those predicted parti-
cles between 1974 and 1994.

Kobayashi and Maskawa also
predicted that symmetry would
be broken in the behavior of
other particles, called B-mesons.
As early as 2001, scientists con-
firmed that prediction, too.

Nambu said he was awak-
ened by the academy, which
called to tell him about the
prize.

“Twas surprised and, honored.
I didn’t expect it. I’ve been told
for many years that I was on
the list (to get the award),” he
said. “I had almost given up.”

The Japanese-born Nambu

- moved to the United States in

1952 and is a professor at the
Enrico Fermi Institute at the
University of Chicago, where
he has worked for 40 years. He
became a USS. citizen in 1970.

Kobayashi, 64, works for the
High Energy Accelerator
Research Organization, or
KEK, in Tsukuba, Japan.
Maskawa, 68, is a physics pro-
fessor at Kyoto Sangyo Univer-
sity in Japan’s ancient capital
of Kyoto, who also teaches at
Nagoya University in his home-
town in central Japan.

“I wasn’t expecting the
prize,” Kobayashi said. “I’ve
been only Pusu my inter-
est.”

“It’s an honor to receive the
prize for my work from long
time ago,” Kobayashi said at a
news conference in Japan. “I
wrote that Paper more than 30
years ago.’

Kobayashi seemed to be
astonished by the big crowd of
reporters and said “Looks like
it’s a big deal.”

ed the 64-year-old professor.

JOSE LUIS GARZA, 47, lies in his bed in his home in Monterrey, Mexico, Friday, Oct. 3, 2008.

Garza is getting diet advice from Manuel Uribe, a fellow Mexican who has been fighting to lose his

title as the world’s heaviest man. Both men live around the Monterrey area and are bed-ridden.

m JUAREZ, Mexico

A 450-KILOGRAM (990-
pound), bedridden man who
had appealed on Mexican tele-

vision for help tackling his °

weight problem died Tuesday
of heart failure, his family said,
according to the Associated
Press.

mergency officials had to
knock down Jose Luis Garza-
’s bedroom wall and load him
onto the back of a friend’s
pickup truck as he fought for
his life. The 47-year-old was
pronounced dead on arrival at
a hospital in northern Mexi-
co.|

Garza followed in the foot-
steps of the world’s fattest
man, fellow Mexican Manuel
Uribe of Monterrey, by tak-
ing his weight problem public.
Garza lived about an hour
away from Uribe in the town
of Juarez.

Garza said he always strug-
gled with his weight, but that
he fell into a desperate cycle
of depression and overeating
nine months ago after his par-
ents died of natural causes

within two weeks of each oth-

er. He had been bedridden for

four months. sag
Garza’s condition deterio-

‘rated over the weekend as he

struggled to breathe and eat.
At his funeral, family members
slammed state officials for not
moving Garza to a hospital
before he became critically ill.

“If he had received support
at the time he asked for it, he
would 'still be with us,” said
his brother Pedro Garza.

State officials argued there
was little they could do.

“The attention he would

have received at a hospital
would have been the same he
got at home,” said Julio Cesar

Cano, spokesman for the Nue-
vo Leon state health depart-
ment. “Moving a patient of
that magnitude is very diffi-
cult. A normal ambulance |
won’t work.”
_ Uribe, whose record weight
of 560 kilos (1,230 pounds)
earned him a place in the 2008
Guinness Book of Records,
has claimed to have lost
around 250 kilos (550 pounds)
by following the Zone Diet
invented by Dr. Barry Sears.
Uribe tried to help Garza
by sending him kiwis, grape-
fruit, pears and a protein sup-
plement. Uribe’s fiancee,
Claudia Solis, delivered the
food on Friday evening.

Storm Marco
hits Mexico’s



B VERACRUZ, Mexico

TROPICAL Storm Marco
roared ashore on Mexico’s
Gulf coast with near-hurricane
force winds on Tuesday,
prompting a shutdown of
some oil platforms, according
to the Associated Press.

The storm flooded coastal
highways and brought heavy
rains to the city of Veracruz,
but the busy port appeared to
have escaped most of the stor-
m’s wrath.

Veracruz state authorities
closed schools and set up
some 200 shelters. Soldiers
and rescue officials lined up
buses and prepared to evacu-
ate communities, some in low-
lying areas still trying to recov-
er from heavy flooding caused
by rains last week.

Mexico’s state oil company
said it had evacuated 33 work-
ers from four offshore plat-
forms in the Gulf of Mexico,
closed six wells and shut down
a natural gas processing plant
in Veracruz state ahead of
Marco’s arrival.

Marco was a tightly wound
cyclone with tropical-storm-
force winds extending only
about 15 miles (30 kilometers)
‘from the center, according to
the U.S. National Hurricane
Center in Miami.

Marco hit land about 55
miles (90 kilometers) north of
Veracruz with winds near hur-
ricane strength, but quickly
weakened as it headed inland.
Forecasters said it would dis-
sipate as it Moves Over moun-
tainous terrain, and state offi-
cials warned that rainfall of as
much as 4 inches (10 centime-
ters) in places could unleash
dangerous mudslides.

Mexico’s Communications
and Transportation Depart-
ment ordered the small ports
of Nautla and Alvarado closed
to small vessels.

Ranulfo Marquez, the
state’s top.civil protection offi-
cial, said dozens of shelters
would remain open in south-
ern Veracruz, where rain-
swollen rivers jumped their
banks, leaving the towns of
Minatitlan and Hidalgotitlan
under 10 feet (3 meters) of
water.

“This will be a strong phe-
nomenon (for the state), espe-
cially taking into account that

ulf coast

we already have 43 rivers that
have overflowed,” Marquez
said.

Meanwhile, on the other
side of Mexico, Norbert
strengthened into a Category
1 hurricane over the Pacific
Ocean late Monday and fore-
casters said it could hit the

before bringing rain to the

The hurricane center said
Norbert was centered 555
miles (895 kilometers) south-
southeast of the tip of the

was moving west-northwest at
8 mph (13 kph). It had winds
‘of 80 mph (130 kph) and was

“Let’s Learn Judo with

of collaboration between Putin
— a black belt — and other
judo enthusiasts, including for-

mer World and Olympic judo
‘champion Yasuhiro. Yamashita.
It apparently was privately
made and intended mainly for
Russians studying judo.

Early Tuesday morning, min-
utes into his 56th birthday,
Putin talked about the video at
a presentation before journal-

ists and other guests at a state-
owned venue. Putin said the
video’s title was little more than

an “advertising trick.” Anyone
who watches it “will be learning
not from your humble servant
but from real geniuses” of the
martial art, he said.

Portions of the promotion
and the video were shown on
Russian television later Tues-
day. The video depicted a

Pa. teen ‘plotted to
bomb sleeping family’

mi PITTSBURGH

A SUBURBAN Pittsburgh teenager tried to kill his sleeping
family by placing homemade chlorine bombs while they slept,
police said, according to the Associated Press.

Christopher Janney, 16, of South Fayette, was charged with
attempted homicide for leaving what police described as “chlorine
compression bombs” near the heads of five family members while
they were asleep. Janney is being charged as an adult.

Police said the six devices were made of clear bottles with white
powder that smelled of chlorine. The bottles did not explode and no

one Was injured.

Janney’s mother, Bonnie, told WPXI-TV that her son “has men-

tal problems,

* but that she did not think he would do anything to

-hurt her. A person who answered the phone at the family’s home
told The Associated Press no one would comment.

The one-page complaint spelled out some details of what family
members told police, but did not explain Janney’s purported

motive.

Linda Hippert, superintendent of South Fayette School District
where Janney is a high school junior on the soccer team, called the

incident shocking.

She described Janney
as “just what I would call
your regular everyday
student, and by that I
mean not a student who
was in trouble,” she said.

Police didn’t explain
specifically how the
bombs were assembled
or what kind of injuries
they were capable of
causing.

“It’s an open investi-
gation. We don’t want to
jeopardize what we're |
doing,” South Fayette
Police Chief Louis Volle
said Tuesday. “We’ve
got a lot of unanswered
questions.”

Sgt. Al Wessel of

complaint said.



KDKA-TV that he did not believe such devices would kill, but said
they could cause serious burns and possible blindness.

The criminal complaint also said that Janney had used a pepper-
mill to grind up rat poison. It did not indicate whether he tried to

use the rat poison on his family.

Police said they recovered a chemical gas mask, and text mes-
sages and e-mail from a computer and cell phone in Janney’s home.
He had asked at least one person how to mix chemicals and wrote,

“T went through with my plan,”

the complaint said.

The teen was arrested Sunday, but Volle wouldn’t say where or
how. The complaint said Janney. and an accomplice planned to

leave town by bus.

Janney is charged with five counts each of attempted homicide
and one count each of reckless endangerment and criminal conspir-

acy.



Ryan Hawks/AP Photo

THIS UNDATED image provided by Ryan Hawks shows Tom
and Jackie Hawks. The couple were allegedly bound to the .
anchor of their yacht and tossed overboard four years ago.
Opening statements in the case of former child actor Skylar
Deleon, who is accused of killing the couple, are expected to

begin Tuesday, Oct. 7, 2008.

Defence: Man is ‘guilty
of three murders’

i SANTA ANA, Calif.

THE ATTORNEY for a
man accused of throwing a
couple off their yacht bound
to an anchor told a jury Tues-
day his client is guilty of those
two murders and a third, but
shouldn’t be put to death.

“My goal is simply to save
Skylar Deleon’s life,” defense
attorney Gary Pohlson said in
a 15-minute opening statement
on behalf of his client.

“Skylar is guilty of all three
murders,” he said.

The concession is not the
same as a guilty plea, however,
and Pohlson said he will dis-
pute some details of thé prose-
cution case. The attorney indi-
cated his client should not face
the death penalty because oth-
ers involved will have differ-
ent outcomes of their cases. He
urged life in prison without
possibility of parole instead.

Deleon is accused of killing
the Arizona couple, Tom and
Jackie Hawks, in 2004 in order

to steal their yacht, and killing -

another man from whom he
stole thousands in 2003. He has
pleaded not guilty to murder
and murder for financial gain.
The defense strategy
stunned Ryan Hawks, the 32-
year-old son of Tom Hawks,
who came to hear testimony.
“T was blown away,” Ryan

Hawks said. “Thank God I was
sitting down.”

Earlier, Orange County
prosecutor Matt Murphy told
jurors the couple took a cruise
off Southern California think-
ing they were showing off their
yacht, the Well Deserved, to
an interested buyer and ended
up pleading to be spared.

“The evidence is going to
show that is how Tom and
Jackie Hawks died, begging for
their lives,” Murphy said. “The
evidence is going to show Jack-
ie Hawks was crying and say-
ing ... | have a grandchild.
Please don’t kill me.”

The prosecutor graphically
described the killings.

“Skylar threw the anchor
overboard, the rope goes
taught and it rips Tom and
Jackie Hawks off that (boat),”
he said.

Deleon, 29, is a former child
actor who allegedly boasted
that he was a star on the
“Mighty ‘Morphin Power
Rangers” but apparently only
had a small part in one
episode.

Prosecutors are seeking the
death penalty for Deleon, who
they say drafted a plan to kill
the Hawkses after learning
they were planning to sell their
55-foot yacht in-November
2004 to spend more time with
their baby grandson.

NEPAL’S new Kumari, or living goddess Mateena Shakya, 4, looks
: On, as farewell rituals are performed before taking her to Kumari
i house, in Katmandu, Nepal, Tuesday, Oct. 7, 2008. .





Title:
Work:

HINDU and Buddhist
priests chanted sacred hymns
and cascaded flowers. and
grains of rice over a 3-year-old
girl who was appointed a liv-

- ing goddess in Nepal on Tues-

day, according to the Associat-
ed Press.

Wrapped in red silk and
adorned with red flowers in her

hair, Matani Shakya received .

approval from the priests and
President Ram Baran Yadav
in a centuries-old tradition with
deep ties to Nepal’s monarchy,
which was abolished in’May.

The new “kumari” or living
goddess, was carried from her
parents’ home to an ancient
palatial temple in the heart of
the Nepali capital, Katmandu,
where she will live until she
reaches puberty and loses her
divine status.

She will be worshipped by,

Hindus and Buddhists as an
incarnation of the powerful
Hindu deity Taleju.

A panel of judges conducted
a series of ancient ceremonies
to select the goddess from sev-
eral 2- to 4-year-old girls who
are all members of the impov-

-erished Shakya goldsmith caste.

The: judges read the candi-
dates’ horoscopes and check
each one for physical imper-
fections. The living goddess
must have perfect hair, eyes,
teeth and skin with no scars,
and should not be afraid of the
dark.

As a final test, the living god-
dess must spend a night alone
in a room among the heads of
ritually slaughtered goats and
buffaloes without showing fear.

Having passed all the tests,
the child will stay in almost
complete isolation at the tem-
ple, and will be allowed to
return to her family only at the
onset of menstruation when a

First wan

m@ KATMANDU, Nepal

new goddess will be named to
replace her.

“T feel a bit sad, but since my
child has become a living god-
dess I feel proud,” said her
father Pratap Man Shakya.

Matani Shakya replaces
Sajani Shakya, who sparked a
public debate about the role of
the goddesses.

Sajani was temporarily
stripped of her revered status
in July last year when she trav-
eled to the United States to
promote a documentary about
the living goddesses.

Officials removed her title
while she was overseas because
tradition bars living goddesses
from leaving the homeland.
Popular support for Sajani
apparently forced them to
reverse the decision and rein-
state her. On return to Nepal,
Sajani was met by hundreds of
supporters and followers.

She was retired in March at
the age of 11, nearly a year
after the controversy. Priests
said her retirement had nothing
to do with it and was because
she had “come of age.”

During their time as a god-
desses, they always wear red,
pin up their hair in topknots,
and have a “third eye” painted
on their foreheads.

Devotees touch the girls’ feet
with their foreheads, the high-
est sign of respect among Hin-
dus in Nepal. During religious
festivals the goddesses are
wheeled around on a chariot
pulled by devotees. |

Critics say the tradition vio-
lates both international and
Nepalese laws on child rights.
The girls often struggle to read-
just to normal lives after they
return home.

Nepalese folklore holds that
men who marry a former
kumari will die young, and so
many girls remain unmarried
and face a life of hardship.

Port Authority

(GBPA) and its

affiliate incurred $3
million in costs as a result of
their 15-month receivership, a
Supreme Court judge has
found, in ruling that they and
their immediate holding com-
pany should continue to par-
ticipate actively in the legal dis-
pute over their ownership to
protect their assets.

Justice K. Neville Adderley,
in an October 7, 2008, verdict
refused the late Edward St
George estate’s application for
an injunction to prevent the
GBPA and Port Group Ltd,
plus Intercontinental Diversi-
fied Corporation (IDC), from
playing an active role in the
dispute between itself and the
family trust of Sir Jack Hay-
ward.

However, Justice Adderley
did grant the estate’s applica-
tion for an injunction against
the company that, in many
ways, lies at the heart of the
ownership dispute, Fiduciary
Management Services (FMS),
finding that it should play “a

Her ruling on the ownership
dispute, which found that the
GBPA and Port Group Ltd’
ownership was split 50/50
between the St George Estate
and Hayward family, returned
the verdict that FMS was effec-
tively acting as a trustee for Mr
St George’s shareholding in

The St George estate had
argued that FMS was breach-

refusing to transfer the shares”

and associate director with
KPMG Corporate Finance
(Bahamas), told Tribune Busi-
ness that while the survey find-
ings were not broken down by
country, “for the Bahamas, in
particular, our results lined up
with what is happening in the
Caribbean”. |

She added that the Bahamian



hotel and condo industry, and
the wider tourism industry,
needed to keep a close eye on

what was happening elsewhere ° ,

in the region, especially in
nations like Cuba and the
Dominican Republic, which
were presenting ever- increas-
ing competition to this nation’s
efforts to tap into new visitor
markets.

One of the key findings from
the KPMG 2008 Hotel and
Condominium Benchmarking
Survey was that “significant
room capacity is being added
in the non-English-speaking
Caribbean”, meaning countries

such as Cuba and the Domini- _

can Republic, which are increas-
ingly dominating the market for

-Canadian and European visi-

tors.

That has implications for the
Bahamas, which is itself spend-
ing millions in marketing dol-
lars in its attempts to exploit
the relative strength of the

Canadian and European cur- '
rencies against the US dollar, .

and attract more visitors from
those two areas to diversify its
tourist base away from 85 per
cent reliance on the US.

“At the end of March 2008,
over 65,000 rooms (300-plus)
projects were in the construc-
tion pipeline for the Caribbean,
Mexico and Central America,”
the KPMG survey found, with
some 47 per cent or 127 of those
resort developments slated to
take place in the Caribbean.

Of those Caribbean projects,
some 15 or 20 per cent are ear-
marked for the Dominican
Republic, with another 23 or 16
per cent scheduled to take root
in Puerto Rico. Some 76 pro-

these circumstances that [FMS]
does not have any separate
legitimate interest from that of
its beneficiary.

“When asked by the court
what separate, personal inter-
est [FMS] might now have in
this case, counsel could only
point to its claim as the benefi-
cial owner of the shares in
[IDC].”

In what could be described
as a ‘score draw’, with both
sides able to take something
from Justice Adderley’s ver-

_ dict, he granted the injunction

that forces FMS to play a neu-
tral role, but did not do so for
the GBPA and Port Group
Ltd, or IDC.

The St George estate had
argued, in relation to the
GBPA and Port Group Ltd,
that it was “improper” for a
company that is the subject of a
shareholder dispute to become
involved in’ the row. It also
argued that Evans & Co, the

attorneys for the companies,
had not authority to act on
their behalf.

Justice Adderley said the
evidence before him indicated
that Evans & Co, were
approved to act for the com-
panies after Board meetings
on 8-9 November, 2006. There
was no involvement in their
appointment by Sir Jack Hay-
ward or ousted GBPA chair-
man, Hannes Babak.

While Evans & Co had ini-
tially filed a summons on the
two companies’ behalf seeking
the removal of Clifford and
Myles Culmer as the receivers,
the Boards did not authorise
the continuation of the action
and it was withdrawn.

“There is no question in this
case that there is a divergence
between what is in the inter-
est of [the GBPA and Port
Group Ltd] and what is in the

Chamber president
‘refuses to believe’
we'll see ‘meltdown’

m@ By NEIL HARTNELL
Tribune Business Editor

T H E
Bahamas
Chamber of
Commerce’s
president yes-
terday said he
“refuses to
believe that
we're going to
have our own
economic
meltdown” in
this nation, acknowledging that
while commerce will become
increasingly tough there will not
be “widespread business clo-
sures”.

D’Aguilar

Dionisio D’Aguilar, who is ©

also Superwash’s president, said
that despite the fact that the
Bahamas was increasingly feel-
ing the ripple effects from the
US economic downturn and
Wall Street financial meltdown,
he did not believe this nation’s
economy was in recession yet.

A recession is classed as two
quarters of negative economic
growth, and Mr D’ Aguilar said:
“I’m not convinced yet that
we’re in a full blown depres-
sion. I don’t think we’re there
yet, but there’s nothing we can
do about it.”

The Chamber president
pointed out that downturns
were followed by a recession,
meaning negative economic
growth where the economy con-
tracts, and then a depression.

Acknowledging that the
Bahamas was “in for an eco-
nomic downturn”, Mr
D’ Aguilar said the Government
would do what it could ‘to miti-
gate the worst effects by capital
spending on infrastructure pro-

| jects.



‘While times tough,
Bahamas will avoid
‘widespread business
closures’

These included the $400 mil-
lion Lynden Pindling Interna-
tional Airport redevelopment;
$100 million New Providence
Road Improvement Project; $75
million government housing
programme and government
office complex projects.

Yet Mr D’Aguilar said the
precise impact on the Bahamian
business community would
depend on “how long this goes
on for”, meaning how deep and
protracted the US economic
woes would go - and their sub-
sequent knock-on effects for
tourism and foreign direct
investment.

Trying to strike a more
upbeat note, the Chamber pres-
ident said: “I refuse to believe
that we’re going to have our
own economic meltdown.
Things will get tough, but I
don’t believe we’ll have wide-
spread business closures. I don’t
believe that yet because people
will get creative and find a way
to survive.

“We will not have an eco-
nomic meltdown here; I’m not
at that stage yet. I’ve got too
much invested in this market
for that to happen.

“But things will get tougher.
Certain sectors will be hit, and
this period between now and
Christmas - up to the first week
in December - will be very |
tough. I just got off the phone

Leadenhall card holders

FROM page 1B

liquidator for Leadenhall Bank
& Trust, said an August 25,
2008, Supreme Court Order had
authorised the:successor trustee
for the cardholder deposits to
make the distribution.

“Under the Order, the suc-
cessor trustee is authorised to
make a first distribution on a
pro rata basis to all beneficiaries
in the amount of $9.8 million,

representing 70 per cent of the .

sum of approximately $14 mil-
lion held by the successor
trustee,” Mr Gomez said in a
notice.

That successor trustee is
Turks & Caicos-based First
Financial Caribbean Trust
Company, and indicates that the
more than five-year dispute
between it and Leadenhall
Bank & Trust has come to an
end.

The case had revolved
around a Deed of Retirement,
Appointment and Indemnity
executed_on. March 15, 2002,
appointing First Financial as the


















new trustee for the MasterCard
deposits formerly held by Lead-
enhall.

Those deposits had been held
as security against any unpaid
debts run up by Leadenhall’s
former MasterCard portfolio
clients, the credit cards having
been issued by another former

Bahamas-based entity, Axxess .

International, which had sever-
al directors and shareholders
common to Leadenhall. The
prime mover behind the Axxess
operation, Chris Donnachie, is
also heavily involved with First
Financial. ;

The dispute broke out when
First Financial alleged that
Leadenhall transferred only
$14.25 million of the total $33
million cardholder deposits to
it, forcing it to take out a Mare-
va Injunction to protect and
preserve the assets.

Leadenhall countered that it
had transferred at least $19.7
million to First Financial, with
the balance refunded against
outstanding debts owed by the
Bahamian bank’s cardholders.

Tribune Business
Reporter

TOURISM Minister Vincent
Vanderpool-Wallace yesterday
outlined his ministry’s vision
to transform the country’s num-
ber one industry and secure its
market share amid cece eco-
nomic turmoil.

Saying that the decline in
tourism was a major concern,
Mr Vanderpool Wallace said
his ministry was embarking on
a revolutionary - and possibly
risky - course of action to diver-
sify its target audience, reduce

‘Tenders are invited for a one [1] year contract for the making and
supplying of Uniforms for Security Officers, Screeners and



airlift costs, increase Family
Island activity and improve the

overall visitor experience, all .

resulting in more visitors and
increased visitor spend.
He pointed out that last year

alone, there were about 3, 075

rooms that remained unoccu-

~ pied.each night - the equiva-

lent of one hotel. Mr Vander-
pool-Wallace said those rooms
- and the ones in development

_mode - will need to be filled.

After a thorough canvassing
of the industry following his
appointment earlier this sum-
mer, Mr Vanderpool Wallace
said the Ministry will rely more
on its www.Bahamas.com web-
site and 1-800 Bahamas toll free
hotline to encourage visitors to
pre-plan their entire trip, and
to interact with Bahamians
before even leaving home.

He said the Ministry intends
to work with its private and
public sector partners to
improve the visitor experience
through greater nightlife activ-
ity, increased tour offerings and
a greater emphasis on cultural
and heritage tourism.

Noting that Family Island
destinations have remained
stagnant due to expensive airlift
and inconvenience, Mr Van-
derpool-Wallace said the Min-
istry will now market the
Bahamas as a region rather
than a destination, encourag-
ing visitors to explore multiple
islands, and will work with
locals to promote and market
the unique characteristics of
each.

Affordable airlift is a major
concern, he added, and said the
Ministry was working closely
with the airlines to determine
how to reduce airlift costs and
bring more passengers in at a
cheaper price. and The
Bahamas will also target areas
such as China, India and Russia

for.visitors to diversify its

tourist base.

Those with a more optimistic

: long-term outlook are taking

confidence from the fact that
the Bahamian economy has

unprecedented events - such as

~ the September 11, 2001, attacks

Yet the global liquidity/cred-

down since the Great Depres-
sion.

. This has. impacted the

foreign direct investment. The
latter has almost completely

“My God, it’s going to get
hammered,” Mr D’ Aguilar said
of the Bahamian hotel indus-
try, when asked which sectors of
the economy were most likely

{
i

to be impacted. nai

Retailers selling non-éssen-
tial items were also likely to be
hit, the Chamber president said,
both by the US fallout and soar-

--Ing operating costs, as Bahami-

an consumers conserved their
scarce cash resources for neces-
sity purchases.

Mr,,D’ Aguilar said estab-
lished retailers such as Kelly’s
Home Centre, plus grocery
stores, were better positioned
to ride out any retail decline,
although the latter were likely
to see a drop in the sale of high-
margin products.

The small business sector was
also vulnerable to a reduction in
the disposable income of
Bahamian consumers, Mr
D’ Aguilar said, but commercial
banks were unlikely to foreclose
on business loan defaulters.

This was because the banks
would not want to run these
businesses themselves, and the
downturn meant few buyers
would be available. Banks
would not want to be stuck with
assets where they would be
unable to realise a full recov-
ery, as a liquidation would be
unlikely to produce this out-
come.

The Central Bank’s report on
monthly economic develop-

. ments for the 2008 second quar-

ter revealed that the percent-
age of commercial loans in
arrears - those 30 days past due
- grew from 8.4 per cent in the

Speaking at a Retirement
Service honouring Mrs Millar
in July, the Prime Minister
called her "a fine example of
what a public servant should be.
She has, for many years, been
high in the ranks of this extra-
ordinary contingent. And, truly
in her case, each working day
literally extended well into the
night. She has unstintingly given
of her vast knowledge, experi-
ence and capacity for work over
many crucial years in our coun-
try’s recent history."

In responding to the
announcement, Mrs Millar said:
"I am profoundly grateful for
being selected by BFSB for its
2008 Lifetime Achievement

’ Award. This is a very signifi-

cant recognition of my career
in the Public Service."

Ltd] was contrary to law, and
it was not in the interest of the
companies.

“Lasting as it did for over 15
months, it contributed to the
dissipation of the assets of the
companies by incurring the cost
of the receiver-manager and
related expenses approximat-
ing $3 million, and the loss of
trading and business opportu-
nities still being assessed.”

Damages were recoverable
from the St George estate as a
result of the March 7, 2008,
order discharging the receiver-
ship, Justice Adderley said, not-
ing that it was possible “further
adverse orders” could be made
against the GBPA and Port

-Group Ltd.

This happened when they

- were ordered to pay the cost of

mediation between the Hay-
ward and St George sides,
which lasted from March 7,
2008, and May 8, 2008.

“They were not given an
opportunity to be heard before
that order was made, and would
not be able to be heard on the

matter of recovering the costs
arising out of the appointment
of the receiver-manager or oth-
erwise act in the interest of the
companies if they were required
to act neutrally,” Justice Adder-
ley found.

“If the companies could not
be heard, it would clearly be a
breach of natural justice as well
as a denial of fair hearing guar-
anteed by Article 20 (8) of the
constitution of the Bahamas.”

The GBPA and Port Group
Ltd could not be restrained
from active participation
because “they had legitimate
interests to pursue” that were
distinct from those of their
shareholders.

The same applied to IDC,

' “because there are numerous

claims by the plaintiffs which,
if successful, would result in the

stripping or non-recovery of its

assets, forcing it to deal with its
assets in reulrictive ways, or
affecting existing contractual
relations” that were not in its
interests and separate from the
shareholder dispute.

jects, or 54 per cent of the
Caribbean total, will be con-
structed in the Bahamas and
elsewhere.

Some 70 per cent of the
planned Caribbean resort :pro-
jects had residential compo-
nents, with the US a key feeder
market for buyers, indicating
they are likely to be heavily
impacted by the global credit
crunch and ability of purchasers
- if there are any in the market -
to find financing.

More than half these projects
were expected to ope before
2010, according to the KPMG
survey, but the report’s analysis
“excludes Cuba, whose Tourism
Ministry plans to add 10,000
new rooms (30 projects) over
the next two years.

“Current inventory is esti-
mated at 50,000 rooms. With
more than two million stopover
visitors in 2007, and 15 per cent
growth for the first quarter of
2008, Cuba also has plans to
improve its infrastructure net-
work.”

This, of course, has implica-
tions for the Bahamas, which
has experienced no significant
room inventory growth beyond
the existing 14,000-15,000 since
the mid-1980s.

Ms Lewis said that while
Cuba was not a competitor for
American tourists because of
the US travel embargo, both it
and the Dominican. Republic
“pull a significant percentage”
of Canadian and European vis-
itors”.

This was especially important
given the Bahamas’ renewed

efforts to make deeper inroads

into these markets. “From that
standpoint, we should keep our
eye on Cuba,” Ms Lewis told
Tribune Business.

“Given the current financial
situation in the US, Ministry of
Tourism officials are certainly
currently quite concerned about
the way our tourism base is
[US-dependent] and the need
to diversify it. That’s something
we should bear in mind.

“They’re [Cuba and thé

* Dominican Republic] signifi-

cant competitors. We have to
remain on our ‘Ps’ and ‘Qs’.”

When it came to performance
indicators for the Caribbean .
hotel and condo industry, the
KPMG survey detailed the
impact increased energy costs
and airlift reductions were hav-
ing on the sector as 2008 pro-
gressed.

For the 2008 first quarter,
average occupancy was up by 2
per cent at 76.6 per cent, but at
the July 2008 year-to-date mark,
this had declined against 2007
comparatives by 0.9 per cent to
71.4 per cent.

It was the same pi ‘ure on
the revenue side. Averuze daily
room rate (ADR) was down by
1.5 per cent at $206.1 for the
2008 first quarter, with this gap
widening to finish 4.7 per cent
behind 2007 comparatives after
the first seven months.

Revenue per available room
(RevPAR) went from a 0.4 per
cent increase after the 2008 first
quarter to being 5.6 per cent

* behind 2007 levels at end-July

2008, while room revenue
dropped from being 1.9 per cent
ahead to 4.3 per cent off 2007

levels at end-July.

vice.

Located in the Nassau

branch, like its Rosetta Street
flagship office, will offer com-
plete property-casualty insur-
ance and related services,
including automobile, marine
and home coverage, and busi-
ness insurance.

Lynden Nairn, Colina Gen-

eral’s president, said: “The con-

tinued growth of our policy-
holder base necessitated this

part of Colina General’s strate-
gy to invest in infrastructure in
order to better serve our exist-
ing client base, and to capitalise
on the growth potential of this
market."

Colina General’s general
manager, Howard Knowles,
added: “Business and residen-
tial communities are spreading
across the island but, for the
most part, insurance companies
are still clustered in Palmdale.

We believe that a new branch in ©

another accessible and vibrant
business district will enable us
to provide quality service to our

clients in a convenient, loca-

tion.”

WASHINGTON (AP) — In
a rare coordinated move, the
Federal Reserve and other
major central banks from
around the world slashed inter-
est rates Wednesday to prevent
a mushrooming financial crisis
from becoming a global eco-
nomic meltdown.

The Fed reduced its key rate
from two per cent to 1.5 per
cent. In Europe, which also has
been hard hit by the financial
crisis, the Bank of England cut
its rate by half a point to 4.5 per
cent and the European Central
Bank sliced‘its rate by half a
point to 3.75 per cent.

_. The central banks of China,
Canada, Sweden, and Switzer-
land also cut rates. The Bank

. of Japan said it strongly sup-
ported the actions.

“The recent intensification of
the financial crisis has aug-
mented the downside risks to
growth,” the Fed said in
explaining the coordinated
action, the latest in a series of
bold moves meant to pry open
tight lending and revive the
global economy.

The Fed’s action will reduce
borrowing costs almost imme-
diately for U.S. bank customers
whose home equity and other
floating-rate loans are tied to
the prime interest rate. Bank of

America, Wells Fargo and oth-
er banks cut their prime rate by

half a point to 4.5 per cent after °

the Fed announcement.

White House spokesman
Tony Fratto welcomed the
cooperation among the Fed and
other countries’ central banks
to battle the crisis. “It’s impor-
tant and helpful that central
banks are working in a coordi-
nated way to deal with stress in
the financial system,” Fratto
said.

The country’s presidential
contenders also embraced the
action. “This is a global crisis

that requires a global solution,” -

said Democrat Barack Obama:
Republican rival John McCain
hoped it would contain the
“financial crisis spreading across
the globe.”

As investors pondered the
implications of the orchestrated
rate cuts, stocks on Wall Street
initially opened lower. By mid-
morning, however, the Dow
Jones industrials were seesaw-
ing.
Some analysts were skeptical
that the coordinated rate reduc-
tions would do much to turn
things around.

“At first blush, while this is a
big step, it is unlikely to prove
sufficient to stem the rot. Adui-
tional rate cuts are likely and
further measures to inject liq-
uidity and re-capitalize banks
are needed,” said Marc Chan-
dler, global head of currency

Top central banks slash

strategy at the investment firm
Brown Brothers Harriman.

The rate cuts came against a
backdrop of increasing anxiety
in global financial markets.
Investors have been fleeing
shares on worries that neither
the Fed, nor other central
banks, could move fast enough
to stop the rising turmoil.

In earlier trading Wednesday,
European stocks fell about five
per cent and Asian stock index-
es skidded more than eight per
cent. Japan’s stock market
plummeted 9.4 per cent — its
biggest one-day drop in 21
years. Trading on both Russian
stock markets was suspended
— on one until Friday and the
other until further notice —
after shares plunged within the
first hour of trading.

The worldwide gloom follow
a sell-off in U.S. markets late
Tuesday, where major stock
indexes slid five per cent. The
rout brought the Dow Jones
industrials’ losses to more than
875 points in two days, and its
close was the lowest close in
five years. The blue chip index

‘is now around 33 per cent below

its record close of 14,164.53 a
year ago. |

The Fed’s action Wednesday
was the latest in a long series
of moves over the last several
weeks that the central bank has
taken in coordination with oth-
er federal agencies, Congress
and the White House to shore
up a financial industry stung by
bad loans, mounting losses and
— in many cases — collapse.
President Bush signed a $700
billion financial bailout bill into
law on Friday.

The Fed’s action reversed its
current policy on interest rates,
which had been to hold them
steady out of concern that more
cuts would fuel inflation. Since

interest rates

and his colleagues put a stop to
interest-rate cuts in June, eco

nomic and financial conditions
have deteriorated significant

ly.

“*The pace of economic
activity has slowed markedly
in recent months,” the Fed
said. “Moreover, the intensifi-
cation of financial market tur-
moil is likely to exert addition

al restraint on spending, partly
by further reducing the ability
of households and businesses
to obtain credit.”

Although inflation has been
high, the Fed believes the
recent drop in energy prices
and the weaker prospects for
economic activity have reduced
this threat to the economy.

In addition, the Fed reduced
its emergency lending rate to
banks by half a percentage
point to 1.75 per cent. Given
the intense credit crisis, banks
have been ramping up their
borrowing from the Fed's
emergency “discount” window.

The fact that the Fed felt it
couldn’t wait until its regularly
scheduled meeting on October
28-29, underscored the urgency
of the situation.

One of the goals of the coor-
dinated rate cuts is to spur ner-
vous consumers and businesses
to spend more freely again.
They clamped down as hous-
ing, credit and financial prob-
lems intensified last month,
throwing Wall Street into
chaos. Many believe the Unit-

ed States is on the brink of, or -
already in, its first recession

since 2001, one that could
quickly spread to other coun-
tries around the globe.

The Fed’s last rate cut was in
late April, capping one of the
most aggressive rate-cutting
campaigns in decades as it
scrambled to shore up the fal-
tering economy. After that, the
Fed moved to the sidelines,
holding rates steady as zoom-
ing food and energy prices dur-
ing, that period threatened to

ignite inflation. In the past few
months, energy prices have
retreated from record highs
reached in mid-July, giving ‘the
Fed more leeway to drop rates
agai.

\t its last meeting tn Sep-
tember, the Fed struck a more
dire tone about the economy,
hinting that a rate reduction
once again could be tn the offt-
ng.

Even with the unprecedent-
ed $700 billion financial bailout
plan, the failing economy and
the jobs market probably will
get worse. Many believe the
economy will jolt into reverse
later this year — if it hasn’t
already— and will stay sickly
well into next year.

One of the most crucial pil-
lars of the economy — the jobs
market — has cracked, and
wage growth is slowing. This
means that Consumers will be
even more hard-pressed to
spend in the fashion that helps
grow the economy.

Increasingly skittish employ-

‘ers slashed payrolls by 159,000

in September, the most in
more than five years. A stag-
gering 760,000 jobs, have dis-
appeared so far this year. The
unemployment rate is 6. | per
cent, up sharply trom 4.7 per
cent a year ago.

The U.S. unemployment
rate could hit seven or 7.5 per
cent by late 2009. If that hap-
pens, it would mark the highest
rate of joblessness since the
months immediately following
the 1990-91 recession. Some
economists say the jobless rate
could rise even more before
the situation starts to get bet-
ter.

Mounting job losses, shrink-

\ing paychecks, shriveling nest

eggs and rising foreclosures all
have weighed heavily on
American voters, who will be
electing a new president in
about four weeks. The econo-
my is their No. | concern, polls

Retailers report weak September sales

@ By ANNE D’INNOCENZIO
AP Business Writer

NEW YORK (AP) — Amer-
ican shoppers went into hiding
in September, sticking to buying
the bare-bone essentials and
leading many retailers to report
dismal sales for the month as
skittish consumers grappled
with the financial meltdown
spreading around the globe.

The weak reports on
Wednesday — an alarming
gauge of consumer behavior
since the meltdown began mid-
way through last month — are
fueling more worries about the
holiday season and the overall
economy, since consumer
spending accounts for two-
thirds of all economic activity.

Given the sharp falloff in
sales and customer traffic, many
retailers, including J.C. Penney
Co., Kohl's Corp., Saks Inc. and
Nordstrom Inc. cut their out-
looks as they use aggressive dis-
counts to pull in shell-shocked
shoppers.

"This is not a significant com-
fort going into the holiday sea-
son," said Ken Perkins, presi-
dent of research company
RetailMetrics LLC. "Every-
body across the board is feel-
ing it. Even discounters are
going to have a tough go. Con-
sumers are going to tighten their
purse strings even more.

As retailers reported their
sales figures Wednesday, even
discounters weren't immune to
shoppers’ mounting worries
about their financial.security.

Wal-Mart Stores Inc., the
world's largest retailer, and
wholesale club operator Cost-
co Wholesale Corp. both
reported solid sales but results
were a bit shy of Wall Street
estimates. Target Corp. report-
ed a bigger-than-expected drop
and said it expects problems
with its credit card business to
last through the rest of the year
as customers have trouble mak-
ing payments.

Luxury stores such as Neiman
Marcus Group Inc. and Saks
Inc., which had seen a sales
slowdown, suffered sharp drops
as well-heeled shoppers cut
back on $600 stilettos and other
luxuries. Many mall-based
apparel stores and department
stores including J.C. Penney Co.
and American Eagle Outfitters
Inc. found themselves mired in

a deep sales slump.

Analysts are worried that
spending could deteriorate even
more as the problems on Wall
Street further, filter through the
economy, with layoffs expect-
ed to rise in the coming months
and the credit markets remain-
ing frozen. That means that con-
sumers are having a hard time
getting loans and credit lines.
That's adding to more stress for
shoppers, who were already
contending with high gas and
food prices and a slumping
home market.

And even with a massive gov-
ernment bailout package, the
stock market has kept dropping
—- signaling fears among
investors that the rescue plan
will not prove to be a panacea.
In the last five trading days, the
Dow Jones Industrials lost 1,400
points, wreaking havoc on
Americans’ retirement funds.

On Thursday, The Federal
Reserve ordered an emergency
interest rate cut of a half per-
centage point to cope with the
worst financial crisis since the
1929 stock market crash. The
Dow fell a bit in early trading
Wednesday.

Wal-Mart offered a tepid
sales outlook as it reported a
2.4 per cent gain in same-store
sales, or sales at stores open at
least a year. Analysts had
expected a 2.5 per cent gain.
The company said the impact
from hurricanes Ike, Gustav
and Hanna, which forced the
company to temporarily close
341 stores, depressed same-
store sales by 0.4 percentage
point.

Wal-Mart said it expects
same-store sales at its U.S.
stores to be up from one to two
per cent for October.

The company said Septem-
ber same-store sales were strong
in both grocery and health and
wellness and that customers
continue to look for basics. It
added that children's clothing
sales were positive but sales of
discretionary items were soft.

Wal-Mart, like many U.S.
retailers that operate overseas,
is now also contending with an
international economic slow-
down. The retailer said it had
solid sales figures in many of its
international markets, despite
tough economic conditions. It
noted a 3.8 per cent gain in
nominal same-store sales at

BATHROOM ACCESSORIES



SALE STARTS

Wal-Mart Mexico despite a
slowdown in the Mexican econ-
omy.

The company said it's sticking
with its current earnings esti-
mate for the quarter ending
October 31.

Rival Target Corp., which has
struggled because of its heavy
emphasis on nonessentials like
fashions and home furnishings,
reported a three per cent drop
in same-store sales. That's
worse than the 1.3 per cent
decline that Wall Street ana-
lysts had expected. It also
reduced its third-quarter esti-
mates as mounting defaults on
payments for its store credit
card has led to higher write-offs.

Costco announced a seven
per cent gain in same-store
sales, just below the 7.5 per cent
estimate. Excluding gasoline
price inflation, same-store sales
would have been up six per
cent.

But mall-based apparel and
department stores continued to
see their fortunes unravel.

Luxury stores were hit hard
by the financial meltdown,
which is expected to result in
mounting layoffs in financial
jobs. Saks reported a 10.9 per
cent drop in same-store sales,
worse than the 6.8 per cent
decline expected. Nordstrom
cut its third-quarter earnings
and sales outlook as it reported
a 9.6 per cent decline in same-
store sales, worse than the 7.1
per cent decrease expected.
Neiman Marcus suffered a 12.9
per cent same-store sales drop.

Mid-brow Penney reported a
12.4 per cent drop in same-store
sales, worse than the 9.9 per
cent decline analysts had
expected. The company cut its
earnings and sales outlook for
the third quarter. Kohl's cut its
profit outlook as it reported a
5.5.per cent dip in same-store
sales, though results were not
as‘bad as the 6.1 per cent
decline expected.

Among teen retailers, Pacific
Sunwear of California Inc. had
a five per cent decline in same-
store sales, worse than the 7.3
per cent expected. American
Eagle Outfitters Inc. had a six
per cent drop, worse than the
five per cent decline projected.

utlook: World economy will

slow sharply this year, in ‘09

1 By JEANNINE AVERSA

AP Economics Writer

WASHINGTON (AP) —
the world economy will slow
sharply this year and next, with
the United States likely sliding

- into recession reflecting mount-

ing damage from the most dan-
gerous financial jolt in more
‘han a half-century.

The International Monetary
Fund, in a World Economic
Jutlook released Wednesday,
slashed growth projections for
ihe global economy and pre-
dicted the United States — the
epicenter of the financial melt-
down — will continue to lose



traction.

“The world economy is now
entering a major downturn in
the face of the most dangerous
shock in mature financial mar-
kets since the 1930s,” the IMF
said in its report.

The IMF now projects that
the global economy, which grew
by a hardy five per cent last
year, will lose considerable
speed, slowing to 3.9 per cent
this year. It is forecast to weak-
en even more — to just three
per cent — next year, marking
the worst showing since 2002.
In the past, the IMF has called
global growth of three per cent
or less the equivalent to a glob-

The

al recession.

The IMF’s projection was
made before the Federal
Reserve and six other major
central banks from around the
world slashed interest rates
Wednesday in an attempt to
prevent a financial crisis from
becoming a global economic
meltdown.

The Fed reduced its key rate
from two per cent to 1.5 per
cent. In Europe, which also has
been hard hit by the financial
crisis, the Bank of England cut
its rate by half a point to 4.5 per
cent, while the European Cen-
tral Bank sliced its rate to 3.75
per cent.

Also taking part were the
central banks of China, Canada,
Sweden, and Switzerland. The
Bank of Japan said it strongly
supported the actions.

The financial crisis, which
erupted in the United States in
August 2007 and has quickly
spread around the globe,
entered a tumultuous new
phase last month, badly shak-
ing confidence in global finan-
cial institutions and markets,
the IMF said. It has triggered a
cascading series of bankrupt-
cies, forced mergers and radi-
cal government interventions
— such as the United States’
unprecedented $700 billion
financial bailout — to stem the
fallout.

The new projections come
before a gathering of the

world’s top economic powers
on Friday and the weekend
meetings of the IMF and the
World Bank. The jarring finan-
cial crisis is likely to figure
prominently in those discus-
sions. ;

In the United States, the
economy, which grew by two
per cent last year, is projected to
slow to 1.6 per cent this year.
Growth would screech to a vir-
tual halt in 2009, barely budging
at just 0.1 per cent. That would
mark the worst showing since
1991, when the country was
pulling out of a recession.

“With a recession now look-
ing increasingly likely, the key
questions are, how deep will the
downturn be, when will a recov-
ery get under way and how
strong will it be?” the IMF
asked. Much will hinge on how
effective the United States’
steps to stabilize financial mar-
kets and get credit flowing more
freely again turn out to be.
Another important factor is
whether these and other actions
turn around U.S. consumers,
whose retrenchment is hurting
the economy.

The IMF — and many pri-
vate economists — believe the
U.S. economy will probably
contract in the final three
months of this year and the first
three months of next year,
meeting a classic definition of
a recession. The economy’s last
recession was in 2001.

The government’s bailout
package is aimed at thawing
lending by buying bad mort-
gage-related debt from troubled
financial institutions. The idea is
that the banks’ books would

then be cleaner, putting them |

in a better position to lend and
get the economy moving.

The IMF said this effort
should help to stabilize markets
but even so “the process of bal-
ance-sheet repair will be long
and arduous.” Credit availabil-
ity is likely to remain con-

- strained throughout 2009, the

IMF said.

Fed Chairman Ben Bernanke
warned in a speech Tuesday
that the economy’s outlook for
this year has darkened and the
pain could last for some time.
His remarks were seen as
heralding the rate cut Tuesday.

Looking at other countries,
Germany’s growth will slow to
1.8 per cent this year, down
from 2.5 per cent last year.
France’s growth will weaken to
just 0.8 per cent, compared with
2.2 per cent in 2007. Britain’s
economy will see growth taper
to one per cent, down from
three per cent last year.
Canada’s growth will tail off to
0.7 per cent this year, from 2.7
per cent last year.

In Japan, growth will cool to
just 0.7 per cent, from 2.1 per
cent last year.

Global powerhouses China
and India will see growth clock

in this year at a robust 9.7 per
cent and 7.9 per cent, respec-
tively. Even if those projections
prove correct, they would still
mark downgrades from their
blistering performances last .
year. Russia’s economy should

_ grow by a brisk seven per cent

this year, down from 8.1 per

‘cent last year.

Inflation around the world
remains high, driven up by surg-
ing energy and food prices
through much of this year.

It will be tricky for Bernanke
and his counterparts in other
countries to navigate weak
growth and inflation pressures,
the IMF said.

“The immediate policy chal-
lenge is to stabilize financial
conditions, while nursing
economies through a period of
slow activity and keeping infla-
tion under control,” it said.

ing director for LNG, told Tri-
bune Business that the company
- which is proposing to supply
BEC’s New Providence power
generation plants with LNG
from its terminal on Ocean Cay
near Bimini - had obtained
quotes from a manufacturer on
the cost of converting the spe-
cific turbines employed by BEC
to burn LNG, rather than
diesel.

“We operate 10,000
megawatts (MW) of gas tur-
bines throughout the world,”
Mr Samson said. “We’ve done
our own conversion in the
Dominican Republic, going
from oil to duel burn.

“We’re surprised by the num-
ber [the Government’s conver-
sion cost estimate], but in some
regards its irrelevant. We’ve
offered to do the conversion
ourselves, and the long-term
picture is that with the environ-
mental and economic benefits
package, it’s still a great deal.”

Dr Earl Deveaux, minister of
the environment, told Tribune
Business on Tuesday that con-

NEW YORK (AP) — Oil
prices swung higher Tuesday,
snapping a four-day plunge as
investors temporarily halted
their frantic selling to see
whether the government’s

sweeping economic bailout

verting BEC’s turbines to gen-
erate power from LNG “would
require huge capital invest-
ment” in the region of $100 mil-
lion, with the Government
wanting to submit the proposal
by AES Corporation to a “full
technical review” before reach-
ing a decision on the proposal.

Yet Mr Samson told this
newspaper yesterday: “We’re
confident this number is very
manageable. If it’s so-mething
that does not fit into the Bud-
get, we’ve offered to do it ata
very modest change in sales
price.

“If you look at the Domini-

can Republic and Puerto Rico, .

the two projects in my history,
those countries are looking to
expand their. use of LNG

because of the environmental ,

and economic benefits.

“Countries that have LNG
are better off and those that
don’t are trying to get it. I think
it’s a great opportunity for the
Bahamas.”

Mr Samson had said in June
that the cost of converting
BEC’s seven to eight combus-
tion turbines at Blue Hills to
take LNG had been estimated

at between $1-$1.5 million each,

can stem a widening global
downturn.

_ Light, sweet crude for
November delivery rose $2.25
to'settle at $90.06 a barrel on
the New York Mercantile
Exchange, after earlier trading

making a maximum total of $12
million.

Mr Samson’s message yester-
day was that even if the con-
version costs were closer to
BEC and the Government’s fig-
ures, this was still minimal com-
pared to the potential cost sav-
ings for the electricity supplier.

Mr Samson had projected. -

that BEC could save between
$1.4 billion to $4 billion - $80

- million to $210 million per

annum - in fuel costs over a 15-
year period if it switched to
using LNG, based on two sets
of data for future global oil
prices.

Yet Tribune Business under-
stands that the Government’s
concerns over the AES propos-
al relate to long-term LNG
prices, and whether-they-would
increase at the same rate.- and
reach the same level - as oil
prices as global demand
increased. Such a development
would negate any advantages
from switching BEC to LNG. —

Mr Samson said that AES
was effectively offering the
Government two options -
approving the original LNG ter-
minal and pipeline that would
service Florida only, or giving

as high as $93.02.

Prices had lost nearly $13... :

ees to pay for BEC LNG

the go-ahead for that project
and the pipeline to New Provi-
dence. :
He added that AES under-.....
stood the Government’s desire .
to undertake a further technical
review of the New Providence
supply proposal, but added: '
“We’ve got to have an answer.

At this.point, we need an

answer yesterday.”

AES and its attorneys have
been pushing for a government
decision on whether to make
the approval in-principle that
was granted to its project back
in 2001 a full, formalised
approval that would allow it to
proceed.

The US power generation —
giant had initially sought goy-
ernment approval to supply
Florida with LNG via a pipeline

“and regasification terminal at

Ocean Cay, a man-made island
off Bimini.

Yet AES had earlier this year
modified its proposal, in light
of the issues the Bahamas and
BEC were experiencing with
soaring energy costs as a result
of rising global oil prices, and
offered to supply New Provi-
dence with LNG from the Bimi-
ni plant, too.

31-year-old ran from
attackers, turned away help

A 31-YEAR-OLD man beat-
en and stabbed in Mason Addi-
tion, Nassau, ran from his attack-
ers and turned away help from
neighbours before he died in an
unnamed alley on Tuesday night.

Jean Sitney, who frequented
the area in Nassau’s inner city,
was found dead at 8pm on Tues-
day, having sustained traumatic
injuries all over his body.

Neighbours said they tried to
help him as he ran from attack-
ers, but he continued to move,
worsening his state.

They suid Mr Sitney had suf-
fered from mental health issues
and he is thought to have been at
Sandilands Rehabilitation Centre
earlier that day.

“He had a freak-out,” one
neighbour told The Tribune.

“T don't know if he might have
said something to someone in
the street, but a fight broke out
between him and some people
where he was beaten and
stabbed.

“He ran from the scene, he
was still alive, and people said
the ambulance took forever to
get there, and that he might have
lived if the ambulance came on
time.

“Some of the Haitian people
in the community tried to. help
him and hold him still, but he
wouldn’t keep still, so he suc-
cumbed to his injuries and died
there."

Sandilands would not confirm
whether Mr Sitney was a mental
health patient at the facility.

Princess Margaret Hospital
ambulance department was
unable to inform The Tribune of
the time the ambulance was
called, or when it arrived at the
scene.

Police continuing to investi-
gate the matter were uncertain
yesterday of any details of Mr
Sitney’s family or permanent
address, although he is. known
to have frequented Mason Addi-
tion.

Assistant Supt Walter Evans
said: “Police are investigating to
ascertain the motive for this inci-
dent. Three persons, including
one male and two females, are
being questioned by police in
connection with this matter.”

Anyone with any information
that may assist inquiries should
call the Central Detective Unit
on 322-4444 or call Crimestop-
pers anonymously on 328-8477.

THE TRIBUNE



Police warning over
danger on the Internet

m@ By CHESTER ROBARDS
Tribune Staff Reporter



POLICE are warning individuals to protect
themselves against Internet predators and not to
engage in illegal activity over the Internet.

This comes after several people, including Obie
Ferguson, president of the Trade Union Con-

gress, Dr Sandra Dean Patterson, director of the -

Women’s Crisis Centre and Dr Desiree Cox, for-
mer head of the Urban Renewal Programme,
have in some way been victims of scams on the
Web. :

During a press conference at Police Head-
quarters, Dr Cox recounted how family and
friends around the world panicked after receiving
and e-mail from her Hotmail account asking for
money to be wired to her in Africa. The false
message alleged that Dr Cox had become strand-
ed with no passport while on a HIV charity mis-
sion.

“It’s a kind of crime that affects people like
me who operates outside of the Bahamas or oper-

ates internationally. These people also seem to be ,

able to target whether this is somebody who has
influence and to go for the particular e-mail and
the particular contacts where they think the influ-
ence is and to shape an e-mail that looks platsi-
ble,” said Dr Cox.

Detective Sergeant Mark Anthony Barrett of
the Cyber Crimes Unit said that Internet crimes
should immediately be reported to an Internet
service provider or the police.

He said criminals engage in things like:

e cyber defamation — posting things on the





Inagua’s flamingo, Bahama parrot
populations survive Hurricane Ike

Internet with the intent to bring disrepute | te
someone’s character

° phishing — developing a fake website in order
to acquire passwords

happy slapping —-when unsuspecting victims
are attacked, filmed, and the images are posted on
the Internet

“Never open an e-mail from someone you don’t
know,” said Det Sgt Barrett. “People send these.
chain mails saying, if you don’t forward this e-mail
to 10 persons you will receive three months of bad
luck — bunch of rubbish.

“These people capture these e-mail accounts
and run encryption devices on them until they get
a password and that’s how they hack into these e-
mail accounts.”

He said individuals should always look out for
pornographic material and especially stay away
from child pornography.

“Tt is an offence and there is criminal liability as
it relates to that,” he said.

‘We do have the capability and we do have
the capacity to deal with these individuals and let.
this serve as a warning. .

“If you do, we are able to track you down and
bring you before the courts.”

“We have a relationship with our counterparts
~ urthe- region, in particular the FBI, and within the
. CARICOM nations we share information as it
relates to cyber crime.’

Assistant Commissioner of Police Hulan Han-
na told reporters that even though “we have not
been seeing an alarming number” of these kinds

. of incidents, people in the community are still
being “duped.”

THE Bahamas National Trust _ ry Nixon and Randolph Burrows
announced that following ground determined that the mangroves
and aerial surveys, it is satisfied in the upper area of Lake Rosa

that the flamingo and parrot pop-
ulations on Inagua were not sig-
nificantly impacted by Hurricane
Ike.

Following the storm, environ-
mentalists.and.bird lovers were
particularly concerned about the
endangered Bahama Parrot,
which was said to be at risk of
starvation because Ike was like-
ly to have destroyed its normal
food source. -

An immediate post-storm
reconnaissance by wardens Hen-

and large areas of coppice were
green and appeared in relatively
good condition, the BNT said.
“Some dead birds were seen,

but it appears that most of the
flamingo population (which
numbers tens of thousands in the
breeding season) and the parrot
population (which totals over
8,000 birds) managed to survive.
While the trees were stripped of
fruit, parrots were found foraging
on the ground within a day or
two of the storm's passage,” said

Post-hurricane studies in Aba-

cycle of the parrots. It can take

two years for the parrots to

resume normal breeding pat-

terns. -

The BNT said while it appre-
ciates offers to provide interim
feed for wildlife on Inagua,
experts say this is neither neces-
sary nor desirable, as it may
cause the birds to rely on humans
for food.

The statement added: “Inagua -
is still a disaster zone — with roads ©
washed out and homes and infra-
structure damaged. The BNT is
working with our president,
Glenn Bannister, and Morton
Salt to help the community
recover. We-have placed flamin-
go expert Dr Nancy Clum and
parrot biologist Caroline Stahala
on full alert and they will be dis-
patched to the Inagua National °
Park as soon as it is practicable to

conduct a more detailed ;

post-storm assessment of the |
bird populations.

“In the case of the parrots, this
will include estimates of damage
to the coppice and available for-
aging for the birds, and the status
of nesting habitat. ‘

“Parrots on Inagua tend to

nest in dead and hollowed-out »

trees. If this habitat has been
severely impacted we. will
explore scientifically sound
methodologies for supplement-
ing nest cavities, which may
include the use of nest boxes.”

well as the bad.

Speaking with The Tribune yes-
terday at the British Colonial
Hilton, Mr Vanderpool-Wallace
said that the information gathered
will enable his ministry to know
exactly what kind of experience
tourists are getting at each of the
hotels and resorts.

This information, he said, will
allow the ministry to point out to
the respective properties what they
are doing wrong and advise them.to
fix the problem.

The hotels and resorts which
receive negative visitor reports will
then be given the chance to rectify
any aspect of their services which
are dissatisfactory to tourists.

However, should those hotels

and resorts fail to correct the prob- ,

lems, then reports of the negative
experiences that visitors had at a

visitors’ ‘good and
ad’ experiences

property will be published in the
media through the “Voice of the
Visitor.”

Mr Vanderpool-Wallace empha-
sised that this is a very new practice,
which to his knowledge is not being
used anywhere else in the world.

“We're going to do something
very risky, we’re going to talk about
publishing something called “The
Voice of the Visitor.” Let the peo-
ple and the community know what
the visitors are saying about their
experience and what they can do
to make sure that they guard that
experience.

“We want the Bahamian people
to be involved, (so) tell them sta-
tistically and anecdotally what is
going on and what they need to do
in terms of helping us,” he said
speaking during the “Meet the Min-
ister” forum yesterday afternoon.

Nadine Sawyer, accounts man-

BHA and ‘endorsement’ proposal

WE WERE alarmed to hear former,

tourism minister Obie Wilchcombe raise the
Bahamas Hotel Association’s endorsement
proposal in the House of Assembly last
Wednesday. We thought this had been put to
rest in 1991, although it did have the audaci-
ty to raise its ugly head again in 1998, only to
be again crushed and given the boot.

We are sorry, but no matter what fancy
wings they give this baby, she won’t fly in
the Bahamas. The trickle down effect of such
a policy, if once established, will hurt too
many Bahamians in various businesses —
especially those businesses exclusively
reserved for Bahamians in which foreigners
are not meant to dabble.

Now, according to what Mr Wilchcombe
told the House, there must be new people
in the Association with no memory of the
past. He told the House that the. BHA is

again trying to resurrect the old endorsement

policy.

Mr Wilchcombe laid documents on the
table of the House so that members can
“ensure that this does not happen again.”

“It has to do with the fact that the
Bahamas Hotel Association is again asking
for an endorsement from — or pay back of

sorts —— which was described at the time as -

extortion, asking for Dupuch Publications to
provide them with a payment for any
endorsement and for use of the book ‘Wel-
come Bahamas’ in their properties,” Mr
Wilchcombe said. “All the hotels are being

told not to even consider the company unless.

they do so. Mr Speaker, that was raised
before and we met with the Dupuch group
before on this matter and now it’s back again.
“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 the
Dupuch Publications, then it goes to the taxi
drivers, the vendors, it goes to all. You can’t
do that,” said Mr Wilchcombe, to which a
seated MP commented: “You need to stop
them!”

However on Monday the BHA took strong
exception to Mr Wilchcombe’s statement. It
denied it was attempting to introduce a gen-
eral endorsement programme. It said it had
planned to levy a small fee on Dupuch Pub-
lications to give it the exclusive right to place
its “Welcome” magazine in all of its hotel
rooms. This, it said, would not exclude other
publishers trom distributing their materials as
they presently do in public areas within the
hotels. However, the Dupuch publication
would have exclusivity in each hotel room

for a fee. Proceeds from any partnership with

a publisher would be used to support educa-
tion and environmental projects with young
people, said the BHA.

When the matter came up in 1991 it was
pointed out that payment of endorsement
fees of any kind to the BHA would set a dan-
gerous precedent enabling the BHA to
endorse all other products and/or services
that did business with the hotels, including but
not limited to tour operators, activities, attrac-
tions, stores, printers, taxi drivers, ground
transportation companies and grocers.

On September 26, 1991 Sir Orville Turn-
quest wrote a legal opinion on BHA’s
endorsement policy based on what was being
proposed that year. He said in part:

“It is clear from the letters that the Direc-
tors of the Bahamas Hotel Association and
the members who comply with the letter dat-
ed June 5, 1991 have combined in pursuance
of an agreement to extort payment from firms
which supply products and services to guests
at hotels in the Bahamas which hotels are

* members of the Bahamas Hotel Association.

“It is submitted that this combination is a
combination wilfully to do an act causing
damage to, inter alia, Dupuch Publications.
Further, this combination is unlawful and
upon the occasion of damage to Dupuch Pub-
lications is actionable as a conspiracy.”

The 1991 legal opinion continued at length
pointing out that “apart from any illegality,

_ this new endorsement policy of the Bahamas

Hotel Association is immoral and against
public policy.”

As far as we understand, the idea of this
endorsement policy was started in St Thomas,
US Virgin Islands. It was Americans deal-
ing with Americans. Here in the Bahamas
these hotels are foreign owned. They are no
longer on US territory, but on foreign soil
which excludes them from having any part in
certain businesses that are to be held exclu-
sively by Bahamians.

Daily we hear Bahamians, especially
young Bahamian business persons, complain
that they are being marginalised in their own
country by these big foreign conglomerates.
Resentment is growing. This is neither good
for these foreign companies, nor is it good for
Bahamians.

These companies are needed in the

B »hamas, they are even welcomed, but their

- managers have to show some wisdom. They

have to extend a hand of friendship and coop-
eration to the community if there is to be

i harmony.

Learning from
‘The duck and
the devil’

EDITOR, The Tribune.

Thank you for allowing us
space in your most valuable col-
umn to share once more. We
would like to open by sharing a
story entitled “The duck and the
devil” that was passed on to us
and is most suitable for this pu! -
lication. Here we go.

There was a little boy visiting
his grandparents on their farm
who was given a sling shot to play
with in the woods. He practised in
the woods but could never seem
to hit the targets. Getting a little
discouraged he headed back for
dinner.

On his way in he saw grand-
ma’s pet duck. Just out of impulse
he pulled his sling back and let it
fly hitting the duck square in the
head and killing it.

He was shocked and grieved.
In a panic he hid the dead duck in
the woodpile only to see his sister
watching. Sally said nothing.
After lunch the next day grandma
said, “Sally let’s wash the dish-
es,” but Sally replied grandma,
Johnny told me he wanted to help
in the kitchen. Then she whis-
pered to him, remember the.
duck! So Johnny did the dishes,
after that day grandpa asked i.f
the children wanted to go fishin.g
and grandma said, “I’m sorry but
I need Sally to help make sup-
per.” Sally just smiled and said,
“Well that’s all right because
Johnny told me he wanted to
help.” She whispered again
“remember the duck”, so Siilly
went fishing and Johnny stayed
to help. After several day's of
Johnny doing both his chores, and
Sally’s, he finally couldn’t stand it
any longer. He came to gravidma
knelt and confessed that hic ha
killed her duck. Grandma. knelt
down, gave him a hug anid said
“sweet heart, I know. Youi see, I
was standing at the window and I
saw the whole thing. But tvecause
I love you, I forgave you, but I
was just wondering how long you
would let Sally make a slave of
you.” In its conclusion we learnt
that the moral of this story is
whatever is in your past, no mat-
ter what you may have clone, just
as Jehovah God uses people to
edify, encourage and uplift you,
there are people in this world who
allow the devil to use them to try
to keep you down anc] make you
feel inferior by throwing your past
in your face, be it lying, cheating,
debts, drugs, hatred, incarcera-
tion, anger, abuse, etc. It reminds
us that Jehovah God was standing
at the window and like Grand-
ma, He too saw the whole thing
and still desires to use you.

Wow! How enlightening. we
can all rest assure that Jehovah
God is doing His part. Now we
are asking our governments (both
of them) to do their part. What
we are trying to find out is, if our

goverriing parties are interested in
our cirime situation and us as a
peopl,e and how far are they will-
ing ty go to meet us or will they
harden their hearts and treat us
like Sally did Johnny.

We are coming clean, many
have fallen on the way to maturi-
ty ‘and many know their stories
and are willing to restore them
ba.ck in society. Sure we see the
programmes and hear the nice
sj»eeches and talk shows, oh and

let’s not forget your hugs and acts

of love and affection you show to
us and our families during elec-
tion campaigns.

It hurts our hearts that after
elections, these same politicians

who sat on our porch, eat out our

dirty house, hug our jungles
daughters and sent our sons with
the bad police record to win over
his posse/gangs on the parks, now
they don’t care to be seen near
your house and you are not
allowed to see them even with
appointments.

Well, Mr Government and Mr
Opposition, you say you can’t do
your job and be in the communi-
ty every day. Let us interject here,
even now it’s being said by some
of you that you only checking for
your constituency and you don’t
know why Mr or Mrs So and So
sent us to you because you only
have jobs for your own. We take
this time to remind you, that you
are judged by the words that
come out of your mouth, and the
same people you passed on your
way up, it’s only a matter of time
before you, or your colleagues,
are back in these people’s homes.

You may help my sister in Sea
Breeze, but because you disre-
spected my brother, mom, uncle
or friend in Fox Hill, Bain Town
or Kemp Road, you will be sur-
prised when the bush crack and
man is gone.

Please let’s learn to treat all
Bahamians with respect because
we are all connected.

Please stop giving people the
run-around and playing with their
emotions, if you will not assist
them just say so, you will reap
what you sow.

What we would like to see this
government do, however, is cre-
ate a three-strike programme.
Recall all those police records
and go over them with the mind-
set to really be the government of
a second chance.

Those who were convicted of a
crime over twenty years ago and
have never been in any major
court problem since, give them a
clean slate and a new lease on life
to enjoy with their children or

grandchildren. Those convicted
of a crime ten to fifteen years and

society give a clean slate and pro-
bation of five years should they
see the need to get caught up
again. Our young people that
sometimes get into heated argu-
ments and fight; or get caught
with two marijuana joints or
more, or are being misused by
others to sell their drugs, let’s
look at some probation. Let’s be
considerate and look at some
strategic record three to five
years.

Let’s say the second offence
for a period of eight to twelve
years and if a third time for a peri-
od of, let’s say, fifteen years or
more, or even the discretions of
the courts.

Mr Prime Minister, members
of parliament and members of
the senate, to be honest with you,
many of us have a problem with
you all making new laws and set-
ting penalties for the same rea-
sons we are disappointed when
our Prime Ministers send single
people to our homes to represent
our constituency.

That reason is you cannot truly
appreciate or identify the true
meaning of the family and we the
struggling man will become a
bother to you.

All because you cannot, will
not or refuse to come down to
his level. Even now with this our
plea, we know we will be met by
those who refuse to hear our
hearts and choose to make light
of our situation. But let them
have a child that is imprisoned
for defending himself, or a child
that cannot join in on family vaca-
tions because of a record that is
there for the rest of his life.

Then there is the mom, dad,
aunts and uncles who would love
to attend college graduations,
men and women who are profes-
sionals, ministers, and business
people, but cannot travel, not
because of a problem with the
rest of the world, but rather
because their very own people,
specifically our government’s
refusal to believe in them and
give them a second chance, How
sad.

We pray you stay tuned as we
prepare to set a day of march
once a year leading to the next
election, in our efforts to get the
government to show their part in
this area of what they are daily
attempting to teach our children,
called Conflict Resolution.

Let’s free up some of our par-
ents so they can travel with their ©
families.

Thank you for your time and
have a blessed week.

PLP meetings on ‘failed leadership’ crisis

0 In brief

Bank employees
charged with
$50,000 theft

TWO employees of First
Caribbean Bank accused of
stealing $50,000 were arraigned
in a Magistrate’s Court yester-
day. Leslie Brian Bethel, 48, of
Sea Breeze Estates along with
Charles Mcphee, 25, of Fox Hill
Road, were arraigned before
Magistrate Renee McKay at
Court Six in Parliament Street
yesterday, charged with stealing
by reason of employment.

According to court dockets it
was alleged that the two men,
while being concerned together
on Tuesday July 22, stole from
First Caribbean International
Bank on Shirley Street, cash in
the amount of $50,000. Both
men pleaded not guilty to the
charge and opted to stand trial
in Magistrate’s Court.

The prosecution made no
objection to bail being granted
to the accused and both men
were granted bail in the sum of
$10,000. The case has been
adjourned to November 25 for
trial.

A man wanted for question-
ing in connection with an illegal

THE Rotary Club of West

BEGINNING tonight, the
Progressive Liberal Party will
be holding a series of meetings
throughout the country to dis-
cuss the current economic con-

ditions and the crisis of “failed '

leadership”, PLP chairman
Glenys Hanna-Martin
announced yesterday.
Beginning at 7pm tonight at
the Lynden Pindling Centre on
Farrington Road, the meeting
will feature such speakers as
PLP leader Perry Christie,
leader of opposition business in

the House of Assembly Dr:

Bernard Nottage, MP for West
End and Bimini Obie, Wilch-
combe, and the MP for Fort
Charlotte Alfred Sears.

Mrs Hanna-Martin called a
press conference yesterday to
inform the public of this new
initiative, and also to respond
to FNM chairman Johnley Fer-
guson, who recently criticised
the PLP for doing little but
“exacerbate political tensions
along party lines”.

Calling Mr Ferguson “grossly
out of touch” with the hardships
that Bahamians are facing, Mrs
Hanna-Martin reminded the
chairman that when the FNM

took office in May 2007 the

country had a “booming econ-
omy”.

Since then, she said, the gov-
ernment has set about revers-
ing many of the advances the
PLP had left in place.

Mrs Hanna-Martin added
that in just 17 months, Bahami-
ans “in large and unprecedent-
ed numbers” have been forced
to resort to welfare to meet sim-
ple “basic needs”.

“Construction projects which
would have employed thou-
sands have been either delayed
or stopped altogether.

“In at least one case it can be
legitimately argued that this
government has chased away a
potential investor thereby com-
promising a major investment
on the Cable Beach strip.

“Important social initiatives
in vulnerable communities have
been stopped.

“How can we forget all those
Bahamians who were fired
when the FNM took office?
One must wonder how many of

those persons, now form the
army of long lines of people
seeking help at the offices of
the Department of Social Ser-
vices,” she said.

Mrs.Hanna-Martin added
that while the “out of touch
chairman — Johnley Ferguson —
complains about a past PLP
government moving slowly, he
should be reminded that his
party has formed the govern-
ment for 11 of the last 16 years.

“Today with the largest cabi-
net in Bahamian history we are
facing the worst times in our
country’s history with condi-
tions slipping rapidly.

FREEPORT - Families for

Justice is vehemently opposed °

to the Plea Bargain Bill that gov-
ernment is seeking to pass into
law without, it claims, any
thought for the victims of seri-
ous crimes and their families.

Founder Rev Glenroy Bethel
and the families of murder vic-
tims in Freeport expressed their
disapproval of the bill during a
press conference held at Zion
Baptist Church yesterday.

“We say no to the bill...and
the injustice this bill, if passed,
will bring to thousands of victims

sand their families in this coun-

AWA GUTIM STEN ARLE gH

THE Bahamas Humane Society has
created a special award — the Betty



try,” he said.

Rev Bethel said the bill bene-
fits accused persons by lessening
their sentences and allowing
them to be released back into
society to commit other crimes
after serving much less time in
jail.

He said that many Bahamian
people do no know about the
Plea Bargain Bill, what it is and
what it seeks to do if passed into
law.

The Plea Bargain Bill was
introduced in Parliament in June
by Prime Minister Hubert Ingra-
ham. The Bill — described as a
landmark bill — seeks to create a

legislatively based plea bargain .

system for the first time in the
Bahamas.

Kenning B-Humane award — to recog- |

nise individuals who have given unusu-
al service above and beyond the normal
call of duty to the animals of the coun-
try, BHS president Kim Aranha

announced.

“There are many people in this
nation who have given huge parts of
their lives to the betterment of condi-
tions for animals in the Bahamas. They
are truly our ‘unsung heroes’. This [
award has be specifically created to
honour them for their outstanding com- [
passion and dedication to animals,”

Mrs Aranha said.

The criteria for the Betty Kenning B-
Humane award is to be a person who is truly dedicated to improving the
lives of animals in the Bahamas, the BHS said.
“When being nominated, the person submitting the nomination
must be able.to list all the good works done that have contributed to

improving the animal situation here.

“We are really hoping that the general public will take the time to
nominate persons known to them that work hard and tirelessly and get
little or no recognition. Most of the dedicated animal people here in the
Bahamas do their good work purely for the love of God’s creatures and
do not expect thanks. We think it is nice to publicly recognise them.

“We know that they are happy with just a lick and a wag, or a purr and
a tweet, but they deserve a lot more than that,” the Humane Society said.

The Betty Kenning B-Humane award is designed to give a “big
thank you” to the people from the Bahamas Humane Society on behalf
of the animals who have been saved and helped.

‘Luc award will be presented at the Bahamas Humane Society’s ball
on November 15, held at the British Colonial Hilton.

Persons wishing to nominate somebody are asked to submit the
nomination in writing (250 words or more) to the Bahamas Humane
Society or by e-mail to bhscruelty@gmail.com.

All nominations will be reviewed by the board. Nominations deadline

is October 31 at 6pm.

, Families for Justice strongly —
B'S RASHiONs oppose the Plea Bargain Bill -

The bill is aimed at address-
ing the rising backlog of criminal
cases and rising crime rate in the
Bahamas.

Plea bargaining involves pros-
ecuting officers in conjunction
with a defence attorney offering
a deal or agreement to accused
individuals as an incentive for
the accused to plead guilty in an
effort to avoid the need for trial,
but more often ensure a convic-
tion.

Although lauded as a “revo-
lutionary concept” by the gov-
ernment, the Families for Justice
leader describes it as “injustice”
to law-abiding citizens.

“Tt is a clear violation of every

law-abiding citizens’ constitu-
tional rights,” said Rev Bethel.
The government, Attorney Gen-
eral and every law enforcement
agency in the Bahamas has a
sworn duty, according to the con-
stitution, to protect its citizens.

“We are calling on the gov-
ernment to legislate stiffer penal-
ties for rape, armed robbery,
murder, and all serious crimes
that are committed in this coun-
try,” he said.

Gloria Vardoulis, Sally Var
doulis and Irene Vardoulis, the
mother, wife, and sister, respec-
tively, of a murdered business-
man Konstantino Vardoulis, said
the government should get input
from victims’ families before
introducing such bills to parlia-
ment, and passing laws that do
not take into consideration the

feelings of victims and their fam- ©

ilies.

“T don’t think that MPs really
know what it is like losing a loved
one to murder,” said Sally Var-
doulis.

Bethel said that Families for
Justice will agitate relentlessly
against the Bill and other leg-
islative injustices in the Bahamas,
including the granting of bail to
persons accused of murder.

Bridgette Grant and Charlene
Smith, the mothers of two of the
five missing boys, Monique
Bethel, the mother of murdered
16-year-old Rishawn Bethel, and
the Vardoulis family believe it is
unfair to families that persons
accused of murder are released
back in society where they some-
times commit other crimes while
awaiting trial.



Woman pleads
guilty to drug
charges

A WOMAN has pled guilty
to drug charges related to the
seizure of over a pound of
cocaine.

Laranda Dorie Charlton,
23, appeared before Chief
Magistrate on Tuesday where
she pleaded guilty to drug
charges stemming from the
seizure of 1.2 pounds of
cocaine. Charlton was
arraigned on Monday along
with Harvey Marcian Kerr, 34,
of Tropical Gardens and

i -Travetha Pyfrom, 28, with

conspiracy to possess cocaine
with the intent to supply, con-
spiracy to export cocaine, tak-
ing preparatory steps to
export cocaine and possession
of cocaine with the intent to
supply.

It is alleged that the accused
committed the offenses on
October 3. All of the accused
initially pleaded not guilty to
the charges.

Charlton however changed
her pleas on Tuesday. She was
fined $6,000. Failure to pay
the fine will result in a six
month prison sentence. Kerr
and Pyfrom have both been
granted bail in the sum of
$10,000. The case has been
adjourned to October 15.

@ A 28-year-old man was
arraigned in a Magistrate’s
Court yesterday on fraud
charges.

According to court dockets,
it is alleged that Yonnic
Mazuir of Miami Street, on
several days between May 1
and September 17, made false
entries on Purity Bakery time
sheets to show that Orlando
Barnett worked a total of
930.05 hours.

It is further alleged that
between May 1 and Septem-
ber 17, Mazuir, while
employed at Purity Bakery at
Market Street, stole
$4,246.16.

Mazuir, who appeared
before Magistrate Guillimena
Archer at Court Nine in Nas-
sau Street, pleaded not guilty
to the charges and was grant-
ed bail in the sum of $5,000
with one surety.

The case has’ been
adjourned to November 21.

Would-be Harbour Island visitors

are warned about powercuts

WOULD-BE winter visitors to
Harbour Island are being warned
in advance that powercuts could
ruin their stay.

Blackouts are now so much
part of island Jife that businesses
fear a marked drop in tourist
trade.

Richard Malcolm, formerly of
Pink Sands, has written to would-
be guests at his tourist lodgings on
Briland warning them of possi-
ble power outages.

He has given them the chance .

to back out of their vacation
arrangements rather than having
to face their wrath later on.

Mr Malcolm.and his wife Lem-
mie have opted for a “total hon-
esty” policy rather than be
embarrassed by unhappy visitors.

In a circular letter, they say
they have waited until “the last
possible moment” to warn poten-
tial guests’ because they were hop-
ing something positive would hap-
pen before the official start of the
winter season on November 1.

Livelihood

“As far as we can determine,
nothing has,” they write, adding:
“It is never easy to have to deal
with negative situations concern-
ing one’s own héme and liveli-
hood.”

They continue: “However, in
all fairness to you, our visitors,
bread and butter, and our friends,
we feel it only fair to advise you
that a few comfort pitfalls may
affect you during your planned
visit to Harbour Island, especial-
ly here at the north end of the
island.

“The blame for the poor elec-
trical supply, planning, and future
approach cannot be placed on
any one organisation, person, or
administration.

“Basically, the rapid and seri-
ous overdevelopment of Harbour
Island has just out-stripped the
country’s ability to maintain cer-
tain infrastructure at the same
pace. Therefore, when the visitor

Businesses fear marked
drop in tourist trade



pressure, ie hotel guests, winter
resident house owners,
rental houses, marinas, etc begins
in another three or four weeks,
it is most probable that the elec-
tric supply will again be unable
to meet demands, as has been the
situation.”

To make the matter worse and
add further frustration, they say,
the electrical grid on the island
is arranged in such a way that any
attempt to shed or “share” a lim-
ited supply of electricity around
equitably is out of the question.

“The only way, BEC tells me,
to lighten the load on the island a
bit is to shut off the same two
rather small sections of the island
all the time. No sharing. We here,
north of the township, are in one
of those sections.

“When there is a problem, we
average about twice as much time
with no supply of electricity as
does most of the rest of the
island.

“Tt is most disconcerting late
at night to look toward the town-
ship, which is very visible from
our hilly location, and see it light-
ed up like a Christmas tree,
including street lights...and we
have nothing, no lights, no water,
or other electrical conveniences.

“In the past few months, we at
times had no electrical supply for
up to 10 and 12 hours at a time at
this end.

“Yes, we do have our own
GENERATOR, two as a matter
of fact, which between them can
supply electricity to our six build-
ings. We feel one of the reasons
that the electrical company is so
relaxed about sharing this end of
the island out of the power supply
is that many in the area do have
auxiliary generators. That is an
incorrect approach.

“Dependence on the aux gen-
erators is a ‘cop oul’. This equip-
ment, while expensive, is not
intended to run that much.

“They start to have problems
and, in fact, our new generator
($38,000 installed) has been out of
service for a couple months now
waiting on an integral part from
Chicago which has been very
hard, and expensive, to locate.

‘Problems

“We are certain to have it
repaired and on online shortly,
but note routine problems can be
expected to shut them down from
time to time, often for periods
waiting on parts or mechanics.

“The main point of all this is to
let you know that there is no way
We can guarantee you constant
electrical service during your stay.
WE CAN GUARANTEE we
will do our best, however. We
hope that will be sufficient.
Should any of you wish to cancel
your plans with us, while we hope
you do not, we will be under-
standing.

“On the other hand, some of
you may revert back to the old
days and consider this an adven-
ture!

“In which case you can join us
in your bathrobe at 3am running
around checking engines, load
factors, temps and so on!!

“After some 58 years being in
one form or another of the hos-
pitality business on Harbour
Island we have learned that the
best approach is to be up front
and totally honest with you.

“That is what we are doing
here and we find that normally
that approach turns what could
be a miserable situation into one

Cacique Awards funds
educational dreams

THE Cacique Awards,
known for honouring the
Bahamas’ highest tourism
achievers, is also making a
push for helping students
achieve educational goals
through the Cacique Scholar-
ship Fund. .

Each year, proceeds from
the Cacique Awards ceremo-
ny, a black tie affair, are chan-
neled into the scholarship
fund, which assists students in
pursuing college degrees.

Dennise Newton, the 2007 °

Cacique Scholarship recipi-
ent, recently paid a courtesy
call on the board of the
Cacique Awards programme.

Ms Newton, 21, graduated
from the College of the
Bahamas, where she studied
tourism and hospitality man-
agement.

While pursuing her Bache-
lor of Arts degree at COB,
she spent a semester abroad
at Holland College in Char-
. lottetown, Prince Edward
Island.

She said that her stay
abroad was a “phenomenal
experience” that provided her
with a sound education. She
hopes to further her educa-
tion and obtain an MBA with
a concentration in marketing

Ms Newton thanked the

her dreams of further educa-

sible if it were not for the
Cacique Scholarship Fund.

When asked what advice
she would offer to those com-

Ms Newton now heads to

FREEPORT - People
flocked to the Department
of Social Services on Tues-
day to receive government
assistance to help settle
their outstanding monthly
electricity bills.

A large number. of per-
sons waited on long lines
outside the Social Services
offices in the National
Insurance Building Com-
plex to see what assistance
they could get under the
new government relief pro-
gramme.

Paula Marshall, assistant
director of Social Services,
said due to the crisis in
Grand Bahama and the
recent power disconnec-
tions, many persons are
coming in to apply for relief
assistance to help pay their
bills.

“We are processing those
persons and at the same
time we are also dealing
with our normal monthly
distribution of food
coupons,” she told The Tri-
bune.

A single mother of three
said she has been struggling
to pay bills since losing her
job at a hotel.

“T have been receiving
assistance and I feel that the

additional assistance
extended to Bahamians is
needed at this hard time,”
she said.

Grand ‘Bahama residents
have been experiencing
tremendous financial hard-

-ship in the last few years as

a result of the downturn of
the island’s economy.

Tourism arrivals are
down, hotel occupancy lev-
els are low, and jobs are
scarce in Freeport.

The high cost of fuel,
gasoline, food, and
increased power rates have
impacted families and busi-
nesses.

In an effort to provide
some relief to struggling
Bahamians, Prime Minister
Hubert Ingraham intro-
duced a new government
relief programme to assist
families in New Providence
whose electricity was dis-
connected due to non-pay-
ment of bills.

On Friday, State Minister
of Finance Zhivargo Laing
and the Grand Bahama
Power ‘Company: vowed to
restore power, to, ‘some, 200°
consumers whose ‘electricity.
was disconnected.

The arrangement reached
between the government
and the Power Company
allows reconnected con-
sumers to enter into a pay-
ment plan with the compa-
ny.

Persons are required to
pay 25 per cent of what they
owe, and the reminder paid
over the next six months,
while continuing to pay the
current bill.

The government has also
agreed to subsidise the fuel
surcharge of GBPC to pro-
vide relief to Freeport con-
sumers.

Minister Laing noted that
from October to December
31, thé government will help
with any charge above 15
cents. The difference will be
paid by the government for
residents who consume no
more than 800kwh per
month. :

Mr Laing said persons
who are having difficulty
meeting the requirements of
the payment plan should
visit Social Services to see
if government relief can be
extended to them.

THE TRIBUNE

@ By FELIX F BETHEL

WHETHER for better or worse,
the fact remains that humanity is
today united..And for sure, it is a
fact that whe troubles break out in
one corer of the world, echo and
reverberation are sometimes felt
throughoutthe entire system.

This neatly explains how it now
comes to be that as troubles beset
the United States of America, they
roll out — wave after cruel wave — to
the rest of the world’s peoples and
places.

In other words, the world has
now become — as the saying goes —
our village. In another time, the
boundaries of our quaint little vil-
lages determined and defined the
extent of our known world.

As we can all now truly appreci-
ate nowhere is any longer far away.

There are times int life when those
who struggle for freedom know that
they struggle not against flesh and
blood, but against principalities,
powers and a myriad of evil forces.

In this vein, it is always so dread- ©

fully appalling when I stop and look
at what the greatest power in the
history of the world is doing ia
places like Iraq and in places lite
Cuba.

In the name of freedom, the
United States of America has »wn
the wind and is now reaping a vhirl-
wind of distress. And by thr ‘day,
the grim harvest of hunger, dsease
and death is being reaped. |

In this regard, please not that I
am told that as far back as fie early
sixties US policy towards Cuba was
clear, blunt and to the point: to
bring about hunger, despeation and
overthrow of governmett.

Forty nine years later that effort
continues. :

For my part, J am convinced that
Cuba is today like a ck that can-
not be moved.

_ And soit is today nat I also take
some note of some what some of
my friends in Oakknd California
have had to say atout five brave
Cubans who nowhappen to be
locked up in the United States.

These brothes and sisters of
mine are membes of an organisa-
tion that goes b’ the name, The
Peace and Freedm Party.

Incidentally,ihe names of the
Cuban men whaeare locked up hap-
pen to be: Geardo Hernandez,
Ramon Labafino, Antonio Guer-
rero, FernandcGonzalez and René
Gonzalez.

, Collectivel, they are known to..,

the world as ne Cuban Five.

that somehow and by some means —
inclusive of Divine intervention —
that they be freed and returned to
their native land, Cuba.

I understand that I am joined in
this request by a number of Nobel
Laureates and other world celebri-
ties.

Archbishop Desmond Tutu just

_ happens to be one of these fine peo-

ple.

While I might have and perhaps
should have gone into some detail
cencerning who these men are and
why they happen to be locked up in
the United States of America, I will
not. .

What I propose to do is far sim-
pler; that being to share with you
the contents of a resolution that has
been made by some of my friends
who are living, working and strug-
gling in Oakland, California.

That I happen to be about the
same business in the Bahamas
makes these men and women my
brothers and sisters in a larger strug-
gle for bread, dignity and freedom
in this world that we must share.

And so we note the contents of a
resolution that has been made by
The Peace and Freedom Party.

They are convinced that:

e Whereas the US government
has financed, armed, and trained
Cuban right-wing extremists to con-
duct terrorist attacks against the
people of Cuba;

e Whereas 3,478 Cubans have

been killed by hundreds of terrorist
attacks, including bombings, assas-
sinations, biological warfare and
other sabotage, and more than 2,500
injured; :

e Whereas despite Cuba’s urg-
ing to the US government that it
take action to stop the terrorist plots
that emanate from U:S. soil, Wash-
ington has failed to thwart those
attacks;

e Whereas Gerardo Hernandez,

Ramon Labafiino, Antonio Guer- .

rero, Fernando Gonzalez and René
Gonzalez, known as the Cuban
Five, entered the United States in
the early 1990s to infiltrate the ter-
rorist organisations in order to mon-
itor their actions and prevent ter-
rorism against their compatriots;

ii a ee
Ministry aiming to cut costs for |
airlines flying to Bahamas from US

FROM page one

travel for Americans is a pillar of
the government’s new tourism
Strategy.

Mr Vanderpool-Wallace
revealed this during a special
video-recorded presentation,
tited “Revitalising Tourism”,
at the British Colonial Hilton
yesterday, due to be broadcast
later this week.

Asked if he has had a posi-
tive response from airlines to
this proposed move by the min-
istry, in terms of indications
that they would correspond-
ingly cut ticket costs and
increase flights, Mr Vander-
pool Wallace said: “Absolute-
ly.”

“We forget an airline is in

the business to make money
and any place that they can
make money, that is where
they want to fly. That’s some-
thing that I think is very impor-
tant for someone to under-
stand.

“What matters to many car-
riers is making sure that they
have the lowest possible cost
of operating in the Bahamas.
We need to address that.”

He suggested this could in
part be done by cutting back
on the tax that airlines pay to
the government when they land

“If (the airline) can fly a rel-
atively short distance given its
fuel costs and have a (profit)
yield which is quite good, it
would rather travel there than
half way around the world. So
the answer is yes, the airlines
that we have spoken to are
quite excited about this possi-
bility.”

He said he has met with
numerous airlines, who find the
ministry’s proposal “very
attractive”, and the organisa-
tion is at present working out

details of the offer it will make
to them.

However, although he said
the ministry has some “very
specific ways” of achieving this
reduction in costs to the air-
lines, with the hope that it will
have a knock-on effect on tick-
et prices, the minister would
not go into further detail about
how it will be achieved, for risk
of “revealing (it) to the rest of
the world.” |

Numerous US-based airlines
have raised their ticket prices,
reduced the frequency of their
flights to the Bahamas, or cut
back altogether from some US
destinations in view of
increased fuel costs.

Meanwhile, Mr Vanderpool-
Wallace said the ministry also
wants to bring down the cost

_ of travel to the Family Islands

— mainly undertaken by small-
er Bahamian operators.

The ministry believes the
cost of flights within the islands
of the Bahamas, in conjunction
with the idea that all the

°Pool Tiles

e Threshold

islands are very similar, has
been a major prohibitor of
greater travel to the Family
Islands.

He said a change in brand-
ing, which would see each
island marketed as a distinct
tourism product rather than
simply one more branch of the
Bahamas, and bringing down
the cost of inter-island travel,
are key to improving visitor
numbers.

Specifics of how a reduction
in the cost of travel to the
islands would be achieved were
again not detailed.

Mr Vanderpool-Wallace said
that in these tough economic
times, there is a silver lining
for the Bahamas.

“Whenever there is a reces-
sion (Americans) tend to tray-
el still but closer to home...we
think we are best positioned
compared to anyone else in the
region to take advantage in
terms of anyone who may be
thinking of travelling from
North America,” he said.

Mr Vanderpool-Wallace told
The Tribune there are “four or
five things” his ministry would
be doing to boost arrivals that
have “never been done anywhere
else in the world.”

However, the minister admit-
ted that he is prepared to quick-
ly scrap those particular initia-
tives if they do not have the
intended results.

The minister said improving
visitor experiences, ensuring trav-
el to and within the Bahamas is
of lower cost and higher quality,
delivering information about the
country “efficiently and effec-
tively” to potential visitors, bring-
ing the public and private sector
together, and keeping an eye on
the success of tourism initiatives
will be key to boosting tourism.

try as a region, rather than as a
single destination, to ensure it
increases its share of the tourism
pie, said Mr Vanderpool-Wal-
lace. »

With “hyper competition” in
the tourism market, it is vital that
the Bahamas differentiates more
than ever between its numerous
far-flung islands so that tourists
get the feeling that they have
many different vacation options
in the Bahamas.

Mr Vanderpool-Wallace point-
ed out that there are many
Americans embarking on domes-
tic travel who do not realise how
close the Bahamas is. He empha-
sised that his ministry will pro-
mote “combination holidays” for
persons visiting other destina-
tions in the US to also come to
the Bahvmas.

“We're going to invite chem
over,” said Mr Vanderpool-Wal-
lace.

In the long-term, the minister
said, the Bahamas will be target-
ing new markets such as Brazil,
Russia, India and China in
addition to traditional visitor
sources, Europe, Canada and the
US.

priorities, eliminated ineffective
practices and reallocated funds
within the ministry’s budget.

Although there may be a
“period of mourning” for some
initiatives, the ministry had now
stopped funding for less effec-
tive, low priority projects and
redistributed the money to high
priority ones.

According to the minister,

when he and his colleagues ,

began strategising the way for-
ward they started by asking the
question: “If the Ministry of
Tourism did not exist today,
would we create it and what
would be its purpose?”

The answer to this, he said, is
that the ministry must identify

and attract potential visitors and\ }
once they are here, give them a:

“delightful experience” which
leaves them feeling compelled to

would allow the law to “take its
course” on Mrs Nottage’s tenure.
He made no further comment on
the matter. : ,

Mr Barnett summed up pend-
ing additions to and retirements
from the judiciary, saying: “Jus-
tice Hepburn has just been
appointed to the Supreme Court.
bench, Justice © (Faizool)
Mohammed will retire from the
Supreme Court bench at the end
of this year, Justice (Rubie) Not-
tage will retire from the Supreme
Court bench, and I think next
year Justice (Cheryl) Albury will
retire so there will be vacancies

on the bench.

“So we have to make an evalu-
ation as to whether we need to
increase the number of judges or
whether we ought to maintain the
number of judges or whether
there is a need to reduce the num-
ber, I’m not sure - but all those
questions remain outstanding.”

Mr Barnett made these com-
ments as a guest on GFMS ‘Tell
It Like It Is’ hosted by former
attorney general Sean
McWeeney.

Mrs Nottage was appointed in
April amid controversy stemming
from a 1980’s court indictment
against her in the United States
on money-laundering charges,
which were raised in the 1984
Commission of Inquiry into drug
trafficking in the Bahamas. US
authorities never acted on the
indictment.

Critics argued that she should
not have been appointed until the
issue was cleared up, while sup-
porters rallied that she was qual-
ified for the job.

According to the constitution, a
justice’s term can be extended
until his or her 67th birthday by
the Governor General if the
prime minister recommends it,
after consultation with the leader
of the opposition.

_ A former vice-chairman of the
constitutional commission formed
under the former administration,
Mr Barnett said one of his biggest
regrets was that during the 2002
constitutional referendum

proposals to extend the age of

retirement for judges were reject-
ed.

“One of the things I really
regret from the last constitution
exercise that took place in 2002
was that the proposals to increase
the age of retirement were reject-
ed and if it weren’t caught up in

the:politics of th e, [believe
that; objectively senting Severy-

sd? would have Supported that
proposition...but that provision
of the constitution which provides
for the extension of the retire-
ment age from one date to anoth-
er was something that ought to
be changed...so my view is that
the age for retirement should be
increased and that the provision
for an extension should be abol-
ished.”

However, he added that the
issue of constitutional reform is



* not high on government’s agenda.

Currently, the age of retire-
ment for members of the
Supreme Court is 65 and 68 for
‘members. of the members of the
Court of Appeal. Court of
Appeal Justice Gatpansingh
retires this year and Justice Osad-
abey retires, I think, in the begin-
ning of next year.”

Mrs Nottage has previously
declined to speak to The Tribune
regarding her retirement. The Tri-
bune was unable to reach her for
comment yesterday.

San Salvador artisans encouraged
to form a craft association

SAN SALVADOR artisans

have been encouraged to form |

a craft association and tap into
the multi-million-dollar sou-
venir market.

Bahamas Agricultural and
Industrial Corporation (BAIC)
executive chairman Edison M
Key told them they had his
support in that quest.

He was speaking during a
graduation ceremony last
weekend for 60 San Salvadori-
ans who completed the BAIC
training course in straw, shell
and coconut craft.

Mr Key was accompanied by
BAIC general manager Ben-
jamin Rahming, Handicraft

* Development and Marketing

Department head Donnalee
Bowe, Bahamas National
Handicraft Association presi-
dent Melonie Thompson and
other BAIC personnel.

They were welcomed by
administrator Jordan Ritchie,
chief councillor Terrance
Major, San Salvador School
principal and regatta com-
modore Paul Turnquest, local
government officials and resi-
dents.

Trained by Eloise Smith
(straw), April Martin-Fox
(shell) and Howard Bevans
(coconut), the graduates cre-
ated a variety of products —
hats, bags, jewellery and table-
ware. They used ingredients
found at San Salvador.

“Yours is among the best we
have seen,” Mr Key told them.
“Tt is because of artists like you
that we are so proud of our
‘Made in the Bahamas’ label.”

He told them to do whatever

they can to ensure the success
of San Salvador’s tourism
product. |

“Tourists are an outlet to the
world for your products,” he
said. “Many of them may want

to take home memorabilia of

their visits here, and which
could inspire them to return.

“The more tourists come
here and even return, the big-
ger your prospective captive
market. And once quality is
your watchword, your product,
I am convinced, will be appre-
ciated.”

Mr Key urged them to form
an association through which

they can tap into markets else-
where.

“For example,” he said,
“there must be something we
can do to get San Salvador-
made souvenirs displayed in
the Bahamian people’s straw
market in downtown Nassau.

“Perhaps your association
can negotiate with the straw
vendors associations in Nassau
and help make our offerings
to our tourists once more over-
whelmingly Bahamian.”

Hotel operators, he said, are
often looking for uniquely
Bahamian experiences for their
guests.

“Yours is uniquely Bahami-
an, found nowhere else but
here,” he said.

Mr Key encouraged them to
take advantage of the internet
as a marketing tool.

“There is a huge market in
the souvenir industry,” he said.
“Many millions of dollars are
spent each year importing sou-
venirs for our tourists. We
must bring an end to that.
Some of those millions must
start flowing directly into your
pockets. For that, you have our
support at BAIC.”

' He invited them to be a part.
of the week of activities in Nas-
sau, beginning October. 26, set
aside to celebrate the arts and
crafts of the Bahamas.

The 11th annual BahamArts
Festival officially opens
on October 31 at 10am with
Prime Minister Hubert Ingra-
ham delivering the keynote
address.

m@ STOCKHOLM, Sweden

TWO Japanese citizens and
“an American won the 2008
Nobel Prize in physics on Tues-
day for discoveries that help
explain the behavior of the
smallest particles of matter,
according to the Associated
Press.

American Yoichiro Nambu,
87, of the University of Chicago,
won half of the 10 million kro-
nor (US$1.4 million) prize for
the discovery of.a mechanism
called spontaneous broken sym-
metry.

Makoto Kobayashi and
Toshihide Maskawa of Japan
shared the other half Of the
prize for discovering the origin
of the broken symmetry that
predicted the existence of at
least three families of quarks in
nature.

The academy said the trio
“presented theoretical insights
that give us a deeper under-
standing of what happens far
inside the tiniest building blocks
of matter.”

In physics, the idea of sym-
metry refers to a kind of equal-
ity or equivalence in a situation.
At the subatomic level, for
example, you should not be able
to tell whether you are watching
events unfold directly or in a
mirror, or whether a movie of
those events is running forward
or backward. And particles
should behave just like their
alter egss, called antiparticles.

If any of these rules is violat-
ed, the symmetry is broken.

One big broken symmetry
arose immediately after the big
bang, when just a tiny bit more
matter than antimatter was cre-
ated. Because these two kinds
of particles annihilate each oth-
er when they meet, that excess
of matter was responsible for
seeding the visible parts of the
universe.

Nambu _ introduced his
description of spontaneous sym-
metry violation into particle
physics in 1960.

The Nobel citation said Nam-
bu’s theories now permeate the
Standard Model of physics,
which is the basic theory of how
the universe operates. For
example, they help explain why
different particles have differ-

ent masses.

In 1972, Kobayashi and
Maskawa explained why an
experiment eight years before
had found that some subatomic
particles called kaons failed to
follow the rules of symmetry.
Their explanation predicted the
existence of three unknown
subatomic particles called
quarks. In fact, scientists dis-
covered those predicted parti-
cles between 1974 and 1994.

Kobayashi and Maskawa also
predicted that symmetry would
be broken in the behavior of
other particles, called B-mesons.
As early as 2001, scientists con-
firmed that prediction, too.

Nambu said he was awak-
ened by the academy, which
called to tell him about the
prize.

“Twas surprised and, honored.
I didn’t expect it. I’ve been told
for many years that I was on
the list (to get the award),” he
said. “I had almost given up.”

The Japanese-born Nambu

- moved to the United States in

1952 and is a professor at the
Enrico Fermi Institute at the
University of Chicago, where
he has worked for 40 years. He
became a USS. citizen in 1970.

Kobayashi, 64, works for the
High Energy Accelerator
Research Organization, or
KEK, in Tsukuba, Japan.
Maskawa, 68, is a physics pro-
fessor at Kyoto Sangyo Univer-
sity in Japan’s ancient capital
of Kyoto, who also teaches at
Nagoya University in his home-
town in central Japan.

“I wasn’t expecting the
prize,” Kobayashi said. “I’ve
been only Pusu my inter-
est.”

“It’s an honor to receive the
prize for my work from long
time ago,” Kobayashi said at a
news conference in Japan. “I
wrote that Paper more than 30
years ago.’

Kobayashi seemed to be
astonished by the big crowd of
reporters and said “Looks like
it’s a big deal.”

His news conference was °

interrupted several times by a
phone call from Prime Minis-
ter Taro Aso, who congratulat-
ed the 64-year-old professor.

A 450-KILOGRAM (990-
pound), bedridden man who
had appealed on Mexican tele-

vision for help tackling his °

weight problem died Tuesday
of heart failure, his family said,
according to the Associated
Press.

mergency officials had to
knock down Jose Luis Garza-
’s bedroom wall and load him
onto the back of a friend’s
pickup truck as he fought for
his life. The 47-year-old was
pronounced dead on arrival at
a hospital in northern Mexi-
co.|

Garza followed in the foot-
steps of the world’s fattest
man, fellow Mexican Manuel
Uribe of Monterrey, by tak-
ing his weight problem public.
Garza lived about an hour
away from Uribe in the town
of Juarez.

Garza said he always strug-
gled with his weight, but that
he fell into a desperate cycle
of depression and overeating
nine months ago after his par-
ents died of natural causes

within two weeks of each oth-

er. He had been bedridden for

four months. sag
Garza’s condition deterio-

‘rated over the weekend as he

struggled to breathe and eat.
At his funeral, family members
slammed state officials for not
moving Garza to a hospital
before he became critically ill.

“If he had received support
at the time he asked for it, he
would 'still be with us,” said
his brother Pedro Garza.

State officials argued there
was little they could do.

“The attention he would

have received at a hospital
would have been the same he
got at home,” said Julio Cesar

Cano, spokesman for the Nue-

_ Uribe, whose record weight
of 560 kilos (1,230 pounds)
earned him a place in the 2008
Guinness Book of Records,
has claimed to have lost
around 250 kilos (550 pounds)
by following the Zone Diet

Uribe tried to help Garza
by sending him kiwis, grape-

plement. Uribe’s fiancee,
Claudia Solis, delivered the
food on Friday evening.

Storm Marco
hits Mexico’s



B VERACRUZ, Mexico

TROPICAL Storm Marco
roared ashore on Mexico’s
Gulf coast with near-hurricane
force winds on Tuesday,
prompting a shutdown of
some oil platforms, according
to the Associated Press.

The storm flooded coastal
highways and brought heavy
rains to the city of Veracruz,
but the busy port appeared to
have escaped most of the stor-
m’s wrath.

Veracruz state authorities
closed schools and set up
some 200 shelters. Soldiers
and rescue officials lined up
buses and prepared to evacu-
ate communities, some in low-
lying areas still trying to recov-
er from heavy flooding caused
by rains last week.

Mexico’s state oil company
said it had evacuated 33 work-
ers from four offshore plat-
forms in the Gulf of Mexico,
closed six wells and shut down
a natural gas processing plant
in Veracruz state ahead of
Marco’s arrival.

Marco was a tightly wound
cyclone with tropical-storm-
force winds extending only
about 15 miles (30 kilometers)
‘from the center, according to
the U.S. National Hurricane
Center in Miami.

Marco hit land about 55
miles (90 kilometers) north of
Veracruz with winds near hur-
ricane strength, but quickly
weakened as it headed inland.
Forecasters said it would dis-
sipate as it Moves Over moun-
tainous terrain, and state offi-
cials warned that rainfall of as
much as 4 inches (10 centime-
ters) in places could unleash
dangerous mudslides.

Mexico’s Communications
and Transportation Depart-
ment ordered the small ports
of Nautla and Alvarado closed
to small vessels.

“Let’s Learn Judo with
Vladimir Putin” is the product
of collaboration between Putin
— a black belt — and other
judo enthusiasts, including for-

mer World and Olympic judo
‘champion Yasuhiro. Yamashita.
It apparently was privately
made and intended mainly for
Russians studying judo.

Early Tuesday morning, min-
utes into his 56th birthday,
Putin talked about the video at
a presentation before journal-

ists and other guests at a state-
owned venue. Putin said the
video’s title was little more than

an “advertising trick.” Anyone
who watches it “will be learning
not from your humble servant
but from real geniuses” of the
martial art, he said.

Portions of the promotion
and the video were shown on
Russian television later Tues-
day. The video depicted a
black-clad Putin talking about

the history and philosophy of

judo, as well as a white-robed

Pa. teen ‘plotted to
bomb sleeping family’

mi PITTSBURGH

A SUBURBAN Pittsburgh teenager tried to kill his sleeping
family by placing homemade chlorine bombs while they slept,
police said, according to the Associated Press.

Christopher Janney, 16, of South Fayette, was charged with
attempted homicide for leaving what police described as “chlorine
compression bombs” near the heads of five family members while
they were asleep. Janney is being charged as an adult.

Police said the six devices were made of clear bottles with white
powder that smelled of chlorine. The bottles did not explode and no

one Was injured.

Janney’s mother, Bonnie, told WPXI-TV that her son “has men-

tal problems,

* but that she did not think he would do anything to

-hurt her. A person who answered the phone at the family’s home
told The Associated Press no one would comment.

The one-page complaint spelled out some details of what family
members told police, but did not explain Janney’s purported

motive.

Linda Hippert, superintendent of South Fayette School District
where Janney is a high school junior on the soccer team, called the

incident shocking.

She described Janney
as “just what I would call
your regular everyday
student, and by that I
mean not a student who
was in trouble,” she said.

Police didn’t explain
specifically how the
bombs were assembled
or what kind of injuries
they were capable of
causing.

“It’s an open investi-
gation. We don’t want to
jeopardize what we're |
doing,” South Fayette
Police Chief Louis Volle
said Tuesday. “We’ve
got a lot of unanswered
questions.”

complaint said.



KDKA-TV that he did not believe such devices would kill, but said
they could cause serious burns and possible blindness.

The criminal complaint also said that Janney had used a pepper-
mill to grind up rat poison. It did not indicate whether he tried to

use the rat poison on his family.

Police said they recovered a chemical gas mask, and text mes-
sages and e-mail from a computer and cell phone in Janney’s home.
He had asked at least one person how to mix chemicals and wrote,

“T went through with my plan,”

the complaint said.

The teen was arrested Sunday, but Volle wouldn’t say where or
how. The complaint said Janney. and an accomplice planned to

leave town by bus.

Janney is charged with five counts each of attempted homicide
and one count each of reckless endangerment and criminal conspir-

acy.

THIS UNDATED image provided by Ryan Hawks shows Tom
and Jackie Hawks. The couple were allegedly bound to the .
anchor of their yacht and tossed overboard four years ago.
Opening statements in the case of former child actor Skylar
Deleon, who is accused of killing the couple, are expected to

begin Tuesday, Oct. 7, 2008.

Defence: Man is ‘guilty
of three murders’

i SANTA ANA, Calif.

THE ATTORNEY for a
man accused of throwing a
couple off their yacht bound
to an anchor told a jury Tues-
day his client is guilty of those
two murders and a third, but
shouldn’t be put to death.

“My goal is simply to save
Skylar Deleon’s life,” defense
attorney Gary Pohlson said in
a 15-minute opening statement
on behalf of his client.

“Skylar is guilty of all three
murders,” he said.

The concession is not the
same as a guilty plea, however,
and Pohlson said he will dis-
pute some details of thé prose-
cution case. The attorney indi-
cated his client should not face
the death penalty because oth-
ers involved will have differ-
ent outcomes of their cases. He
urged life in prison without
possibility of parole instead.

Deleon is accused of killing
the Arizona couple, Tom and
Jackie Hawks, in 2004 in order

to steal their yacht, and killing -

another man from whom he
stole thousands in 2003. He has
pleaded not guilty to murder
and murder for financial gain.
The defense strategy
stunned Ryan Hawks, the 32-
year-old son of Tom Hawks,
who came to hear testimony.
“T was blown away,” Ryan

Hawks said. “Thank God I was
sitting down.”

Earlier, Orange County
prosecutor Matt Murphy told
jurors the couple took a cruise
off Southern California think-
ing they were showing off their
yacht, the Well Deserved, to
an interested buyer and ended
up pleading to be spared.

“The evidence is going to
show that is how Tom and
Jackie Hawks died, begging for
their lives,” Murphy said. “The
evidence is going to show Jack-
ie Hawks was crying and say-
ing ... | have a grandchild.
Please don’t kill me.”

The prosecutor graphically
described the killings.

“Skylar threw the anchor
overboard, the rope goes
taught and it rips Tom and
Jackie Hawks off that (boat),”
he said.

Deleon, 29, is a former child
actor who allegedly boasted
that he was a star on the
“Mighty ‘Morphin Power
Rangers” but apparently only
had a small part in one
episode.

Prosecutors are seeking the
death penalty for Deleon, who
they say drafted a plan to kill
the Hawkses after learning
they were planning to sell their
55-foot yacht in-November
2004 to spend more time with
their baby grandson.

NEPAL’S new Kumari, or living goddess Mateena Shakya, 4, looks
: On, as farewell rituals are performed before taking her to Kumari
i house, in Katmandu, Nepal, Tuesday, Oct. 7, 2008. .





Title:
Work:

HINDU and Buddhist
priests chanted sacred hymns
and cascaded flowers. and
grains of rice over a 3-year-old
girl who was appointed a liv-

- ing goddess in Nepal on Tues-

day, according to the Associat-
ed Press.

Wrapped in red silk and
adorned with red flowers in her

hair, Matani Shakya received .

approval from the priests and
President Ram Baran Yadav
in a centuries-old tradition with
deep ties to Nepal’s monarchy,
which was abolished in’May.

The new “kumari” or living
goddess, was carried from her
parents’ home to an ancient
palatial temple in the heart of
the Nepali capital, Katmandu,
where she will live until she
reaches puberty and loses her
divine status.

She will be worshipped by,

Hindus and Buddhists as an
incarnation of the powerful
Hindu deity Taleju.

A panel of judges conducted
a series of ancient ceremonies
to select the goddess from sev-
eral 2- to 4-year-old girls who
are all members of the impov-

-erished Shakya goldsmith caste.

The: judges read the candi-
dates’ horoscopes and check
each one for physical imper-
fections. The living goddess
must have perfect hair, eyes,
teeth and skin with no scars,
and should not be afraid of the
dark.

As a final test, the living god-
dess must spend a night alone
in a room among the heads of
ritually slaughtered goats and
buffaloes without showing fear.

Having passed all the tests,
the child will stay in almost
complete isolation at the tem-
ple, and will be allowed to
return to her family only at the
onset of menstruation when a

First wan

new goddess will be named to
replace her.

“T feel a bit sad, but since my
child has become a living god-
dess I feel proud,” said her
father Pratap Man Shakya.

Matani Shakya replaces
Sajani Shakya, who sparked a
public debate about the role of
the goddesses.

Sajani was temporarily
stripped of her revered status
in July last year when she trav-
eled to the United States to
promote a documentary about
the living goddesses.

Officials removed her title
while she was overseas because
tradition bars living goddesses
from leaving the homeland.
Popular support for Sajani
apparently forced them to
reverse the decision and rein-
state her. On return to Nepal,
Sajani was met by hundreds of
supporters and followers.

She was retired in March at
the age of 11, nearly a year
after the controversy. Priests
said her retirement had nothing
to do with it and was because
she had “come of age.”

During their time as a god-
desses, they always wear red,
pin up their hair in topknots,
and have a “third eye” painted
on their foreheads.

Devotees touch the girls’ feet
with their foreheads, the high-
est sign of respect among Hin-
dus in Nepal. During religious
festivals the goddesses are
wheeled around on a chariot
pulled by devotees. |

Critics say the tradition vio-
lates both international and
Nepalese laws on child rights.
The girls often struggle to read-
just to normal lives after they
return home.

Nepalese folklore holds that
men who marry a former
kumari will die young, and so
many girls remain unmarried
and face a life of hardship.

Port Authority

(GBPA) and its

affiliate incurred $3
million in costs as a result of
their 15-month receivership, a
Supreme Court judge has
found, in ruling that they and
their immediate holding com-
pany should continue to par-
ticipate actively in the legal dis-
pute over their ownership to
protect their assets.

Justice K. Neville Adderley,
in an October 7, 2008, verdict
refused the late Edward St
George estate’s application for
an injunction to prevent the
GBPA and Port Group Ltd,
plus Intercontinental Diversi-
fied Corporation (IDC), from
playing an active role in the
dispute between itself and the
family trust of Sir Jack Hay-
ward.

However, Justice Adderley
did grant the estate’s applica-
tion for an injunction against
the company that, in many
ways, lies at the heart of the
ownership dispute, Fiduciary
Management Services (FMS),
finding that it should play “a

Her ruling on the ownership
dispute, which found that the
GBPA and Port Group Ltd’
ownership was split 50/50
between the St George Estate
and Hayward family, returned
the verdict that FMS was effec-
tively acting as a trustee for Mr
St George’s shareholding in
IDC.

The St George estate had
argued that FMS was breach-
ing its role as trustee for its
IDC, and by extension GBPA
and Port Group Ltd stake, “by -
refusing to transfer the shares”
from Mr St George’s name into
its own.

Bahamas ‘lines up with region
average’ on hotel performance

@ By NEIL HARTNELL
Tribune Business Editor

THE Bahamian hotel and
condominium industry “lined
up with the average” for the
Caribbean region in terms of
financial performance for 2007
and 2u08 year-to-date, a
researcher who compiled
KPMG’s 2008 benchmarking
survey on the sector said yes-
terday.

Charlene Lewis, a manager
and associate director with
KPMG Corporate Finance
(Bahamas), told Tribune Busi-
ness that while the survey find-
ings were not broken down by
country, “for the Bahamas, in
particular, our results lined up
with what is happening in the
Caribbean”. |

She added that the Bahamian



hotel and condo industry, and
the wider tourism industry,
needed to keep a close eye on

what was happening elsewhere ° ,

in the region, especially in
nations like Cuba and the
Dominican Republic, which
were presenting ever- increas-
ing competition to this nation’s
efforts to tap into new visitor
markets.

One of the key findings from
the KPMG 2008 Hotel and
Condominium Benchmarking
Survey was that “significant
room capacity is being added
in the non-English-speaking
Caribbean”, meaning countries

such as Cuba and the Domini- _

can Republic, which are increas-
ingly dominating the market for

-Canadian and European visi-

tors.

That has implications for the
Bahamas, which is itself spend-
ing millions in marketing dol-
lars in its attempts to exploit
the relative strength of the

Canadian and European cur- '
rencies against the US dollar, .

and attract more visitors from
those two areas to diversify its
tourist base away from 85 per
cent reliance on the US.

“At the end of March 2008,
over 65,000 rooms (300-plus)
projects were in the construc-
tion pipeline for the Caribbean,
Mexico and Central America,”
the KPMG survey found, with
some 47 per cent or 127 of those
resort developments slated to
take place in the Caribbean.

Of those Caribbean projects,
some 15 or 20 per cent are ear-
marked for the Dominican
Republic, with another 23 or 16
per cent scheduled to take root
in Puerto Rico. Some 76 pro-

these circumstances that [FMS]
does not have any separate
legitimate interest from that of
its beneficiary.

“When asked by the court
what separate, personal inter-
est [FMS] might now have in
this case, counsel could only
point to its claim as the benefi-
cial owner of the shares in
[IDC].”

In what could be described
as a ‘score draw’, with both
sides able to take something
from Justice Adderley’s ver-

_ dict, he granted the injunction

that forces FMS to play a neu-
tral role, but did not do so for
the GBPA and Port Group
Ltd, or IDC.

The St George estate had
argued, in relation to the
GBPA and Port Group Ltd,
that it was “improper” for a
company that is the subject of a
shareholder dispute to become
involved in’ the row. It also
argued that Evans & Co, the

@ By NEIL HARTNELL

Tribune Business Editor

attorneys for the companies,
had not authority to act on
their behalf.

Justice Adderley said the
evidence before him indicated
that Evans & Co, were
approved to act for the com-
panies after Board meetings
on 8-9 November, 2006. There
was no involvement in their
appointment by Sir Jack Hay-
ward or ousted GBPA chair-
man, Hannes Babak.

While Evans & Co had ini-
tially filed a summons on the
two companies’ behalf seeking
the removal of Clifford and
Myles Culmer as the receivers,
the Boards did not authorise
the continuation of the action
and it was withdrawn.

“There is no question in this
case that there is a divergence
between what is in the inter-
est of [the GBPA and Port
Group Ltd] and what is in the

Chamber president
‘refuses to believe’
we'll see ‘meltdown’

m@ By NEIL HARTNELL
Tribune Business Editor

T H E
Bahamas
Chamber of
Commerce’s
president yes-
terday said he
“refuses to
believe that
we're going to
have our own
economic
meltdown” in
this nation, acknowledging that
while commerce will become
increasingly tough there will not
be “widespread business clo-
sures”.

D’Aguilar

Dionisio D’Aguilar, who is ©

also Superwash’s president, said
that despite the fact that the
Bahamas was increasingly feel-
ing the ripple effects from the
US economic downturn and
Wall Street financial meltdown,
he did not believe this nation’s
economy was in recession yet.

A recession is classed as two
quarters of negative economic
growth, and Mr D’ Aguilar said:
“I’m not convinced yet that
we’re in a full blown depres-
sion. I don’t think we’re there
yet, but there’s nothing we can
do about it.”

The Chamber president
pointed out that downturns
were followed by a recession,
meaning negative economic
growth where the economy con-
tracts, and then a depression.

Acknowledging that the
Bahamas was “in for an eco-
nomic downturn”, Mr
D’ Aguilar said the Government
would do what it could ‘to miti-
gate the worst effects by capital
spending on infrastructure pro-

| jects.



‘While times tough,
Bahamas will avoid
‘widespread business
closures’

These included the $400 mil-
lion Lynden Pindling Interna-
tional Airport redevelopment;
$100 million New Providence
Road Improvement Project; $75
million government housing
programme and government
office complex projects.

Yet Mr D’Aguilar said the
precise impact on the Bahamian
business community would
depend on “how long this goes
on for”, meaning how deep and
protracted the US economic
woes would go - and their sub-
sequent knock-on effects for
tourism and foreign direct
investment.

Trying to strike a more
upbeat note, the Chamber pres-
ident said: “I refuse to believe
that we’re going to have our
own economic meltdown.
Things will get tough, but I
don’t believe we’ll have wide-
spread business closures. I don’t
believe that yet because people
will get creative and find a way
to survive.

“We will not have an eco-
nomic meltdown here; I’m not
at that stage yet. I’ve got too
much invested in this market
for that to happen.

“But things will get tougher.
Certain sectors will be hit, and
this period between now and
Christmas - up to the first week
in December - will be very |
tough. I just got off the phone

Leadenhall card holders

FROM page 1B

liquidator for Leadenhall Bank
& Trust, said an August 25,
2008, Supreme Court Order had
authorised the:successor trustee
for the cardholder deposits to
make the distribution.

“Under the Order, the suc-
cessor trustee is authorised to
make a first distribution on a
pro rata basis to all beneficiaries
in the amount of $9.8 million,

representing 70 per cent of the .

sum of approximately $14 mil-
lion held by the successor
trustee,” Mr Gomez said in a
notice.

That successor trustee is
Turks & Caicos-based First
Financial Caribbean Trust
Company, and indicates that the
more than five-year dispute
between it and Leadenhall
Bank & Trust has come to an
end.

The case had revolved
around a Deed of Retirement,
Appointment and Indemnity
executed_on. March 15, 2002,
appointing First Financial as the


















new trustee for the MasterCard
deposits formerly held by Lead-
enhall.

Those deposits had been held
as security against any unpaid
debts run up by Leadenhall’s
former MasterCard portfolio
clients, the credit cards having
been issued by another former

Bahamas-based entity, Axxess .

International, which had sever-
al directors and shareholders
common to Leadenhall. The
prime mover behind the Axxess
operation, Chris Donnachie, is
also heavily involved with First
Financial. ;

The dispute broke out when
First Financial alleged that
Leadenhall transferred only
$14.25 million of the total $33
million cardholder deposits to
it, forcing it to take out a Mare-
va Injunction to protect and
preserve the assets.

Leadenhall countered that it
had transferred at least $19.7
million to First Financial, with
the balance refunded against
outstanding debts owed by the
Bahamian bank’s cardholders.

Tribune Business
Reporter

TOURISM Minister Vincent
Vanderpool-Wallace yesterday
outlined his ministry’s vision
to transform the country’s num-
ber one industry and secure its
market share amid cece eco-
nomic turmoil.

Saying that the decline in
tourism was a major concern,
Mr Vanderpool Wallace said
his ministry was embarking on
a revolutionary - and possibly
risky - course of action to diver-
sify its target audience, reduce






































NINN TAICUT BNET



‘Tenders are invited for a one [1] year contract for the making and
supplying of Uniforms for Security Officers, Screeners and



airlift costs, increase Family
Island activity and improve the

overall visitor experience, all .

resulting in more visitors and
increased visitor spend.
He pointed out that last year

alone, there were about 3, 075

rooms that remained unoccu-

~ pied.each night - the equiva-

lent of one hotel. Mr Vander-
pool-Wallace said those rooms
- and the ones in development

_mode - will need to be filled.

After a thorough canvassing
of the industry following his
appointment earlier this sum-
mer, Mr Vanderpool Wallace
said the Ministry will rely more
on its www.Bahamas.com web-
site and 1-800 Bahamas toll free
hotline to encourage visitors to
pre-plan their entire trip, and
to interact with Bahamians
before even leaving home.

He said the Ministry intends
to work with its private and
public sector partners to
improve the visitor experience
through greater nightlife activ-
ity, increased tour offerings and
a greater emphasis on cultural
and heritage tourism.

Noting that Family Island
destinations have remained
stagnant due to expensive airlift
and inconvenience, Mr Van-
derpool-Wallace said the Min-
istry will now market the
Bahamas as a region rather
than a destination, encourag-
ing visitors to explore multiple
islands, and will work with
locals to promote and market
the unique characteristics of
each.

Affordable airlift is a major
concern, he added, and said the
Ministry was working closely
with the airlines to determine
how to reduce airlift costs and
bring more passengers in at a
cheaper price. and The
Bahamas will also target areas
such as China, India and Russia

for.visitors to diversify its

tourist base.

_ September.”

Those with a more optimistic

: long-term outlook are taking

confidence from the fact that
the Bahamian economy has

-been through such down cycles

before, and has come through
unprecedented events - such as

~ the September 11, 2001, attacks

fallout - relatively unscathed.
Yet the global liquidity/cred-

_it crunch, and unprecedented

changes in the international
banking industry, with. long-
standing names collapsing into
bankrupcty and/or being

acquired for a pittance, have
been. likened by some to the
worst global economic melt-
down since the Great Depres-
sion.

. This has. impacted the
Bahamas’ two greatest foreign
exchange earners - tourism and
foreign direct investment. The
latter has almost completely
dried up, having tapered off

. since the beginning of the year,

as developers find it increasing-
ly hard to obtain construction
financing.

“My God, it’s going to get
hammered,” Mr D’ Aguilar said
of the Bahamian hotel indus-
try, when asked which sectors of
the economy were most likely

{
i

to be impacted. nai

Retailers selling non-éssen-
tial items were also likely to be
hit, the Chamber president said,
both by the US fallout and soar-

--Ing operating costs, as Bahami-

an consumers conserved their
scarce cash resources for neces-
sity purchases.

Mr,,D’ Aguilar said estab-
lished retailers such as Kelly’s
Home Centre, plus grocery
stores, were better positioned
to ride out any retail decline,
although the latter were likely
to see a drop in the sale of high-
margin products.

The small business sector was
also vulnerable to a reduction in
the disposable income of
Bahamian consumers, Mr
D’ Aguilar said, but commercial
banks were unlikely to foreclose
on business loan defaulters.

This was because the banks
would not want to run these
businesses themselves, and the
downturn meant few buyers
would be available. Banks
would not want to be stuck with
assets where they would be
unable to realise a full recov-
ery, as a liquidation would be
unlikely to produce this out-
come.

The Central Bank’s report on
monthly economic develop-

. ments for the 2008 second quar-

ter revealed that the percent-
age of commercial loans in
arrears - those 30 days past due
- grew from 8.4 per cent in the
2008 quarter to 13.3 per cent in
the period that ended on June

Ltd] was contrary to law, and
it was not in the interest of the
companies.

“Lasting as it did for over 15
months, it contributed to the
dissipation of the assets of the
companies by incurring the cost
of the receiver-manager and
related expenses approximat-
ing $3 million, and the loss of
trading and business opportu-
nities still being assessed.”

Damages were recoverable
from the St George estate as a
result of the March 7, 2008,
order discharging the receiver-
ship, Justice Adderley said, not-
ing that it was possible “further
adverse orders” could be made
against the GBPA and Port

-Group Ltd.

This happened when they

- were ordered to pay the cost of

mediation between the Hay-
ward and St George sides,
which lasted from March 7,
2008, and May 8, 2008.

“They were not given an
opportunity to be heard before
that order was made, and would
not be able to be heard on the

matter of recovering the costs
arising out of the appointment
of the receiver-manager or oth-
erwise act in the interest of the
companies if they were required
to act neutrally,” Justice Adder-
ley found.

“If the companies could not
be heard, it would clearly be a
breach of natural justice as well
as a denial of fair hearing guar-
anteed by Article 20 (8) of the
constitution of the Bahamas.”

The GBPA and Port Group
Ltd could not be restrained
from active participation
because “they had legitimate
interests to pursue” that were
distinct from those of their
shareholders.

The same applied to IDC,

' “because there are numerous

claims by the plaintiffs which,
if successful, would result in the

stripping or non-recovery of its

assets, forcing it to deal with its
assets in reulrictive ways, or
affecting existing contractual
relations” that were not in its
interests and separate from the
shareholder dispute.

jects, or 54 per cent of the
Caribbean total, will be con-
structed in the Bahamas and
elsewhere.

Some 70 per cent of the
planned Caribbean resort :pro-
jects had residential compo-
nents, with the US a key feeder
market for buyers, indicating
they are likely to be heavily
impacted by the global credit
crunch and ability of purchasers
- if there are any in the market -
to find financing.

More than half these projects
were expected to ope before
2010, according to the KPMG
survey, but the report’s analysis
“excludes Cuba, whose Tourism
Ministry plans to add 10,000
new rooms (30 projects) over
the next two years.

“Current inventory is esti-
mated at 50,000 rooms. With
more than two million stopover
visitors in 2007, and 15 per cent
growth for the first quarter of
2008, Cuba also has plans to
improve its infrastructure net-
work.”

This, of course, has implica-
tions for the Bahamas, which
has experienced no significant
room inventory growth beyond
the existing 14,000-15,000 since
the mid-1980s.

Ms Lewis said that while
Cuba was not a competitor for
American tourists because of
the US travel embargo, both it
and the Dominican. Republic
“pull a significant percentage”
of Canadian and European vis-
itors”.

This was especially important
given the Bahamas’ renewed

efforts to make deeper inroads

into these markets. “From that
standpoint, we should keep our
eye on Cuba,” Ms Lewis told
Tribune Business.

“Given the current financial
situation in the US, Ministry of
Tourism officials are certainly
currently quite concerned about
the way our tourism base is
[US-dependent] and the need
to diversify it. That’s something
we should bear in mind.

“They’re [Cuba and thé

* Dominican Republic] signifi-

cant competitors. We have to
remain on our ‘Ps’ and ‘Qs’.”

When it came to performance
indicators for the Caribbean .
hotel and condo industry, the
KPMG survey detailed the
impact increased energy costs
and airlift reductions were hav-
ing on the sector as 2008 pro-
gressed.

For the 2008 first quarter,
average occupancy was up by 2
per cent at 76.6 per cent, but at
the July 2008 year-to-date mark,
this had declined against 2007
comparatives by 0.9 per cent to
71.4 per cent.

It was the same pi ‘ure on
the revenue side. Averuze daily
room rate (ADR) was down by
1.5 per cent at $206.1 for the
2008 first quarter, with this gap
widening to finish 4.7 per cent
behind 2007 comparatives after
the first seven months.

Revenue per available room
(RevPAR) went from a 0.4 per
cent increase after the 2008 first
quarter to being 5.6 per cent

* behind 2007 levels at end-July

2008, while room revenue

WASHINGTON (AP) — In
a rare coordinated move, the
Federal Reserve and other
major central banks from
around the world slashed inter-
est rates Wednesday to prevent
a mushrooming financial crisis
from becoming a global eco-
nomic meltdown.

The Fed reduced its key rate
from two per cent to 1.5 per
cent. In Europe, which also has
been hard hit by the financial
crisis, the Bank of England cut
its rate by half a point to 4.5 per
cent and the European Central
Bank sliced‘its rate by half a
point to 3.75 per cent.

_. The central banks of China,
Canada, Sweden, and Switzer-
land also cut rates. The Bank

. of Japan said it strongly sup-
ported the actions.

“The recent intensification of
the financial crisis has aug-
mented the downside risks to
growth,” the Fed said in
explaining the coordinated
action, the latest in a series of
bold moves meant to pry open
tight lending and revive the
global economy.

The Fed’s action will reduce
borrowing costs almost imme-
diately for U.S. bank customers
whose home equity and other
floating-rate loans are tied to
the prime interest rate. Bank of

America, Wells Fargo and oth-
er banks cut their prime rate by

half a point to 4.5 per cent after °

the Fed announcement.

White House spokesman
Tony Fratto welcomed the
cooperation among the Fed and
other countries’ central banks
to battle the crisis. “It’s impor-
tant and helpful that central
banks are working in a coordi-
nated way to deal with stress in
the financial system,” Fratto
said.

The country’s presidential
contenders also embraced the
action. “This is a global crisis

that requires a global solution,” -

said Democrat Barack Obama:
Republican rival John McCain
hoped it would contain the
“financial crisis spreading across
the globe.”

As investors pondered the
implications of the orchestrated
rate cuts, stocks on Wall Street
initially opened lower. By mid-
morning, however, the Dow
Jones industrials were seesaw-
ing.
Some analysts were skeptical
that the coordinated rate reduc-
tions would do much to turn
things around.

“At first blush, while this is a
big step, it is unlikely to prove
sufficient to stem the rot. Adui-
tional rate cuts are likely and
further measures to inject liq-
uidity and re-capitalize banks
are needed,” said Marc Chan-
dler, global head of currency

~ THE TRIBUNE

Top central banks slash

strategy at the investment firm
Brown Brothers Harriman.

The rate cuts came against a
backdrop of increasing anxiety
in global financial markets.
Investors have been fleeing
shares on worries that neither
the Fed, nor other central
banks, could move fast enough
to stop the rising turmoil.

In earlier trading Wednesday,
European stocks fell about five
per cent and Asian stock index-
es skidded more than eight per
cent. Japan’s stock market
plummeted 9.4 per cent — its
biggest one-day drop in 21
years. Trading on both Russian
stock markets was suspended
— on one until Friday and the
other until further notice —
after shares plunged within the
first hour of trading.

The worldwide gloom follow
a sell-off in U.S. markets late
Tuesday, where major stock
indexes slid five per cent. The
rout brought the Dow Jones
industrials’ losses to more than
875 points in two days, and its
close was the lowest close in
five years. The blue chip index

‘is now around 33 per cent below

its record close of 14,164.53 a
year ago. |

The Fed’s action Wednesday
was the latest in a long series

interest rates

and his colleagues put a stop to
interest-rate cuts in June, eco

nomic and financial conditions
have deteriorated significant

ly.

“*The pace of economic
activity has slowed markedly
in recent months,” the Fed
said. “Moreover, the intensifi-
cation of financial market tur-
moil is likely to exert addition

al restraint on spending, partly
by further reducing the ability
of households and businesses
to obtain credit.”

Although inflation has been
high, the Fed believes the
recent drop in energy prices
and the weaker prospects for
economic activity have reduced
this threat to the economy.

In addition, the Fed reduced
its emergency lending rate to
banks by half a percentage
point to 1.75 per cent. Given
the intense credit crisis, banks
have been ramping up their
borrowing from the Fed's
emergency “discount” window.

The fact that the Fed felt it
couldn’t wait until its regularly
scheduled meeting on October
28-29, underscored the urgency
of the situation.

One of the goals of the coor-
dinated rate cuts is to spur ner-
vous consumers and businesses
to spend more freely again.
They clamped down as hous-
ing, credit and financial prob-
lems intensified last month,
throwing Wall Street into
chaos. Many believe the Unit-

ed States is on the brink of, or -
already in, its first recession

since 2001, one that could
quickly spread to other coun-
tries around the globe.

The Fed’s last rate cut was in
late April, capping one of the
most aggressive rate-cutting
campaigns in decades as it
scrambled to shore up the fal-
tering economy. After that, the
Fed moved to the sidelines,
holding rates steady as zoom-
ing food and energy prices dur-
ing, that period threatened to

ignite inflation. In the past few
months, energy prices have
retreated from record highs
reached in mid-July, giving ‘the
Fed more leeway to drop rates
agai.

\t its last meeting tn Sep-
tember, the Fed struck a more
dire tone about the economy,
hinting that a rate reduction
once again could be tn the offt-
ng.

Even with the unprecedent-
ed $700 billion financial bailout
plan, the failing economy and
the jobs market probably will
get worse. Many believe the
economy will jolt into reverse
later this year — if it hasn’t
already— and will stay sickly
well into next year.

One of the most crucial pil-
lars of the economy — the jobs
market — has cracked, and
wage growth is slowing. This
means that Consumers will be
even more hard-pressed to
spend in the fashion that helps
grow the economy.

Increasingly skittish employ-

‘ers slashed payrolls by 159,000

in September, the most in
more than five years. A stag-
gering 760,000 jobs, have dis-
appeared so far this year. The
unemployment rate is 6. | per
cent, up sharply trom 4.7 per
cent a year ago.

The U.S. unemployment
rate could hit seven or 7.5 per
cent by late 2009. If that hap-
pens, it would mark the highest
rate of joblessness since the
months immediately following
the 1990-91 recession. Some
economists say the jobless rate
could rise even more before
the situation starts to get bet-
ter.

Mounting job losses, shrink-

\ing paychecks, shriveling nest

eggs and rising foreclosures all
have weighed heavily on
American voters, who will be
electing a new president in
about four weeks. The econo-
my is their No. | concern, polls

Retailers report weak September sales

@ By ANNE D’INNOCENZIO
AP Business Writer

NEW YORK (AP) — Amer-
ican shoppers went into hiding
in September, sticking to buying
the bare-bone essentials and
leading many retailers to report
dismal sales for the month as
skittish consumers grappled
with the financial meltdown
spreading around the globe.

The weak reports on
Wednesday — an alarming
gauge of consumer behavior
since the meltdown began mid-
way through last month — are
fueling more worries about the
holiday season and the overall
economy, since consumer
spending accounts for two-
thirds of all economic activity.

Given the sharp falloff in
sales and customer traffic, many
retailers, including J.C. Penney
Co., Kohl's Corp., Saks Inc. and
Nordstrom Inc. cut their out-
looks as they use aggressive dis-
counts to pull in shell-shocked
shoppers.

"This is not a significant com-
fort going into the holiday sea-
son," said Ken Perkins, presi-
dent of research company
RetailMetrics LLC. "Every-
body across the board is feel-
ing it. Even discounters are
going to have a tough go. Con-
sumers are going to tighten their
purse strings even more.

As retailers reported their
sales figures Wednesday, even
discounters weren't immune to
shoppers’ mounting worries
about their financial.security.

Wal-Mart Stores Inc., the
world's largest retailer, and
wholesale club operator Cost-
co Wholesale Corp. both
reported solid sales but results
were a bit shy of Wall Street
estimates. Target Corp. report-
ed a bigger-than-expected drop
and said it expects problems
with its credit card business to
last through the rest of the year
as customers have trouble mak-
ing payments.

Luxury stores such as Neiman
Marcus Group Inc. and Saks
Inc., which had seen a sales
slowdown, suffered sharp drops
as well-heeled shoppers cut
back on $600 stilettos and other
luxuries. Many mall-based
apparel stores and department
stores including J.C. Penney Co.
and American Eagle Outfitters
Inc. found themselves mired in

a deep sales slump.

Analysts are worried that
spending could deteriorate even
more as the problems on Wall
Street further, filter through the
economy, with layoffs expect-
ed to rise in the coming months
and the credit markets remain-
ing frozen. That means that con-
sumers are having a hard time
getting loans and credit lines.
That's adding to more stress for
shoppers, who were already
contending with high gas and
food prices and a slumping
home market.

And even with a massive gov-
ernment bailout package, the
stock market has kept dropping
—- signaling fears among
investors that the rescue plan
will not prove to be a panacea.
In the last five trading days, the
Dow Jones Industrials lost 1,400
points, wreaking havoc on
Americans’ retirement funds.

On Thursday, The Federal
Reserve ordered an emergency
interest rate cut of a half per-
centage point to cope with the
worst financial crisis since the
1929 stock market crash. The
Dow fell a bit in early trading
Wednesday.

Wal-Mart offered a tepid
sales outlook as it reported a
2.4 per cent gain in same-store
sales, or sales at stores open at
least a year. Analysts had
expected a 2.5 per cent gain.
The company said the impact
from hurricanes Ike, Gustav
and Hanna, which forced the
company to temporarily close
341 stores, depressed same-
store sales by 0.4 percentage
point.

Wal-Mart said it expects
same-store sales at its U.S.
stores to be up from one to two
per cent for October.

The company said Septem-
ber same-store sales were strong
in both grocery and health and
wellness and that customers
continue to look for basics. It
added that children's clothing
sales were positive but sales of
discretionary items were soft.

Wal-Mart, like many U.S.
retailers that operate overseas,
is now also contending with an
international economic slow-
down. The retailer said it had
solid sales figures in many of its
international markets, despite
tough economic conditions. It
noted a 3.8 per cent gain in
nominal same-store sales at

BATHROOM ACCESSORIES



SALE STARTS

Wal-Mart Mexico despite a
slowdown in the Mexican econ-
omy.

The company said it's sticking
with its current earnings esti-
mate for the quarter ending
October 31.

Rival Target Corp., which has
struggled because of its heavy
emphasis on nonessentials like
fashions and home furnishings,
reported a three per cent drop
in same-store sales. That's
worse than the 1.3 per cent
decline that Wall Street ana-
lysts had expected. It also
reduced its third-quarter esti-
mates as mounting defaults on
payments for its store credit
card has led to higher write-offs.

Costco announced a seven
per cent gain in same-store
sales, just below the 7.5 per cent
estimate. Excluding gasoline
price inflation, same-store sales
would have been up six per
cent.

But mall-based apparel and
department stores continued to
see their fortunes unravel.

Luxury stores were hit hard
by the financial meltdown,
which is expected to result in
mounting layoffs in financial
jobs. Saks reported a 10.9 per
cent drop in same-store sales,
worse than the 6.8 per cent
decline expected. Nordstrom
cut its third-quarter earnings
and sales outlook as it reported
a 9.6 per cent decline in same-
store sales, worse than the 7.1
per cent decrease expected.
Neiman Marcus suffered a 12.9
per cent same-store sales drop.

Mid-brow Penney reported a
12.4 per cent drop in same-store
sales, worse than the 9.9 per
cent decline analysts had
expected. The company cut its
earnings and sales outlook for
the third quarter. Kohl's cut its
profit outlook as it reported a
5.5.per cent dip in same-store
sales, though results were not
as‘bad as the 6.1 per cent
decline expected.

Among teen retailers, Pacific
Sunwear of California Inc. had
a five per cent decline in same-
store sales, worse than the 7.3
per cent expected. American
Eagle Outfitters Inc. had a six
per cent drop, worse than the
five per cent decline projected.

utlook: World economy will

slow sharply this year, in ‘09

1 By JEANNINE AVERSA

AP Economics Writer

WASHINGTON (AP) —
the world economy will slow
sharply this year and next, with
the United States likely sliding

- into recession reflecting mount-

ing damage from the most dan-
gerous financial jolt in more
‘han a half-century.

The International Monetary
Fund, in a World Economic
Jutlook released Wednesday,
slashed growth projections for
ihe global economy and pre-
dicted the United States — the
epicenter of the financial melt-
down — will continue to lose



traction.

“The world economy is now
entering a major downturn in
the face of the most dangerous
shock in mature financial mar-
kets since the 1930s,” the IMF
said in its report.

The IMF now projects that
the global economy, which grew
by a hardy five per cent last
year, will lose considerable
speed, slowing to 3.9 per cent
this year. It is forecast to weak-
en even more — to just three
per cent — next year, marking
the worst showing since 2002.
In the past, the IMF has called
global growth of three per cent
or less the equivalent to a glob-

The

al recession.

The IMF’s projection was
made before the Federal
Reserve and six other major
central banks from around the
world slashed interest rates
Wednesday in an attempt to
prevent a financial crisis from
becoming a global economic
meltdown.

The Fed reduced its key rate
from two per cent to 1.5 per
cent. In Europe, which also has
been hard hit by the financial
crisis, the Bank of England cut
its rate by half a point to 4.5 per
cent, while the European Cen-
tral Bank sliced its rate to 3.75
per cent.

Also taking part were the
central banks of China, Canada,
Sweden, and Switzerland. The
Bank of Japan said it strongly
supported the actions.

The financial crisis, which
erupted in the United States in
August 2007 and has quickly
spread around the globe,
entered a tumultuous new
phase last month, badly shak-
ing confidence in global finan-
cial institutions and markets,
the IMF said. It has triggered a
cascading series of bankrupt-
cies, forced mergers and radi-
cal government interventions
— such as the United States’
unprecedented $700 billion
financial bailout — to stem the
fallout.

The new projections come
before a gathering of the

world’s top economic powers
on Friday and the weekend
meetings of the IMF and the
World Bank. The jarring finan-
cial crisis is likely to figure
prominently in those discus-
sions. ;

In the United States, the
economy, which grew by two
per cent last year, is projected to
slow to 1.6 per cent this year.
Growth would screech to a vir-
tual halt in 2009, barely budging
at just 0.1 per cent. That would
mark the worst showing since
1991, when the country was
pulling out of a recession.

“With a recession now look-
ing increasingly likely, the key
questions are, how deep will the
downturn be, when will a recov-
ery get under way and how
strong will it be?” the IMF
asked. Much will hinge on how
effective the United States’
steps to stabilize financial mar-
kets and get credit flowing more
freely again turn out to be.
Another important factor is
whether these and other actions
turn around U.S. consumers,
whose retrenchment is hurting
the economy.

The IMF — and many pri-
vate economists — believe the
U.S. economy will probably
contract in the final three
months of this year and the first
three months of next year,
meeting a classic definition of
a recession. The economy’s last
recession was in 2001.

The government’s bailout
package is aimed at thawing
lending by buying bad mort-
gage-related debt from troubled
financial institutions. The idea is
that the banks’ books would

then be cleaner, putting them |

in a better position to lend and
get the economy moving.

The IMF said this effort
should help to stabilize markets
but even so “the process of bal-
ance-sheet repair will be long
and arduous.” Credit availabil-
ity is likely to remain con-

- strained throughout 2009, the

IMF said.

Fed Chairman Ben Bernanke
warned in a speech Tuesday
that the economy’s outlook for
this year has darkened and the
pain could last for some time.
His remarks were seen as
heralding the rate cut Tuesday.

Looking at other countries,
Germany’s growth will slow to
1.8 per cent this year, down
from 2.5 per cent last year.
France’s growth will weaken to
just 0.8 per cent, compared with
2.2 per cent in 2007. Britain’s
economy will see growth taper
to one per cent, down from
three per cent last year.
Canada’s growth will tail off to
0.7 per cent this year, from 2.7
per cent last year.

In Japan, growth will cool to
just 0.7 per cent, from 2.1 per
cent last year.

Global powerhouses China
and India will see growth clock

in this year at a robust 9.7 per
cent and 7.9 per cent, respec-
tively. Even if those projections
prove correct, they would still
mark downgrades from their
blistering performances last .
year. Russia’s economy should

_ grow by a brisk seven per cent

this year, down from 8.1 per

‘cent last year.

Inflation around the world
remains high, driven up by surg-
ing energy and food prices
through much of this year.

It will be tricky for Bernanke
and his counterparts in other
countries to navigate weak
growth and inflation pressures,
the IMF said.

“The immediate policy chal-
lenge is to stabilize financial
conditions, while nursing
economies through a period of
slow activity and keeping infla-
tion under control,” it said.

ing director for LNG, told Tri-
bune Business that the company
- which is proposing to supply
BEC’s New Providence power
generation plants with LNG
from its terminal on Ocean Cay
near Bimini - had obtained
quotes from a manufacturer on
the cost of converting the spe-
cific turbines employed by BEC
to burn LNG, rather than
diesel.

“We operate 10,000
megawatts (MW) of gas tur-
bines throughout the world,”
Mr Samson said. “We’ve done
our own conversion in the
Dominican Republic, going
from oil to duel burn.

“We’re surprised by the num-
ber [the Government’s conver-
sion cost estimate], but in some
regards its irrelevant. We’ve
offered to do the conversion
ourselves, and the long-term
picture is that with the environ-
mental and economic benefits
package, it’s still a great deal.”

Dr Earl Deveaux, minister of
the environment, told Tribune
Business on Tuesday that con-

NEW YORK (AP) — Oil
prices swung higher Tuesday,
snapping a four-day plunge as
investors temporarily halted
their frantic selling to see
whether the government’s

sweeping economic bailout

verting BEC’s turbines to gen-
erate power from LNG “would
require huge capital invest-
ment” in the region of $100 mil-
lion, with the Government
wanting to submit the proposal
by AES Corporation to a “full
technical review” before reach-
ing a decision on the proposal.

Yet Mr Samson told this
newspaper yesterday: “We’re
confident this number is very
manageable. If it’s so-mething
that does not fit into the Bud-
get, we’ve offered to do it ata
very modest change in sales
price.

“If you look at the Domini-

can Republic and Puerto Rico, .

the two projects in my history,
those countries are looking to
expand their. use of LNG

because of the environmental ,

and economic benefits.

“Countries that have LNG
are better off and those that
don’t are trying to get it. I think
it’s a great opportunity for the
Bahamas.”

Mr Samson had said in June
that the cost of converting
BEC’s seven to eight combus-
tion turbines at Blue Hills to
take LNG had been estimated

at between $1-$1.5 million each,

can stem a widening global
downturn.

_ Light, sweet crude for
November delivery rose $2.25
to'settle at $90.06 a barrel on
the New York Mercantile
Exchange, after earlier trading

making a maximum total of $12
million.

Mr Samson’s message yester-
day was that even if the con-
version costs were closer to
BEC and the Government’s fig-
ures, this was still minimal com-
pared to the potential cost sav-
ings for the electricity supplier.

Mr Samson had projected. -

that BEC could save between
$1.4 billion to $4 billion - $80

- million to $210 million per

annum - in fuel costs over a 15-
year period if it switched to
using LNG, based on two sets
of data for future global oil
prices.

Yet Tribune Business under-
stands that the Government’s
concerns over the AES propos-
al relate to long-term LNG
prices, and whether-they-would
increase at the same rate.- and
reach the same level - as oil
prices as global demand
increased. Such a development
would negate any advantages
from switching BEC to LNG. —

Mr Samson said that AES
was effectively offering the
Government two options -
approving the original LNG ter-
minal and pipeline that would
service Florida only, or giving

as high as $93.02.

ees to pay for BEC LNG

the go-ahead for that project
and the pipeline to New Provi-
dence. :
He added that AES under-.....
stood the Government’s desire .
to undertake a further technical
review of the New Providence
supply proposal, but added: '
“We’ve got to have an answer.

At this.point, we need an

answer yesterday.”

AES and its attorneys have
been pushing for a government
decision on whether to make
the approval in-principle that
was granted to its project back
in 2001 a full, formalised
approval that would allow it to
proceed.

The US power generation —
giant had initially sought goy-
ernment approval to supply
Florida with LNG via a pipeline

“and regasification terminal at

Ocean Cay, a man-made island
off Bimini.

Yet AES had earlier this year
modified its proposal, in light
of the issues the Bahamas and
BEC were experiencing with
soaring energy costs as a result
of rising global oil prices, and
offered to supply New Provi-
dence with LNG from the Bimi-
ni plant, too.
