Man arrested after
high-speed chase

Another suspect
is still being
sought by police

§ By CHESTER ROBARDS
Tribune Staff Reporter

ONLOOKERS were shocked
to see a high-speed car chase
unfold yesterday near the Nation-
al Insurance Building.

The police were chasing a
white Nissan Maxima in the
Grove around 2.30pm. The inci-
dent resulted in the arrest of one
man. Another is still being sought.

According to Assistant Police
Commissioner Hulan Hanna, offi-
cers responded to what they ini-
tially thought was a stabbing,
howeve., they later determined
it might have been a scuffle.

Individuals residing:in the area
of the chase, contrary to police

reports, say they heard gunshots ©

around the time the men would
have been fleeing the police.

And witnesses on Acklins
Street, where'the suspects ditched
the vehicle, noticed what they
thought might have been a bullet
hole in the lower left of the dri-
ver's door of the Maxima.

An eyewitness at the scene
said after hearing "Pap! pap!
pap!" one of the men ran straight
past him toward the National
Insurance Building.

He said another man who

Government extends payment plan
deadline for electricity consumers

RESIDENTIAL electricity
consumers of the Bahamas Elec-
tricity Corporation and the Grand
Bahama Power Company whose
service has been reconnected
under the Government’s social
assistance initiative now have
until October 31 to set up pay-
ment plans to settle their account
arrears, the Government
announced Thursday.

BEC customers previously had

' until Friday, October 10 and

GBPC customers until Friday,
October 17 to establish payment
plans or face re-disconnection of
their supply.

In order to accommodate per-
sons who may not be able to meet
the previously set deadlines, the
Government has made arrange-
ments to extend the payment plan
deadline for these customers.

Last month Government
directed BEC to immediately

reconnect the service of persons |

whose supply had been discon-
nected for failure to settle their
accounts in full.

Government was advised that

over 5,000 residential consumers
had their supply of electricity dis-
connected, the vast majority of
those with outstanding bills of less
than $1,000.

As of Thursday, 4,231 BEC
customers had their electricity
restored under that directive.

OUT Island hoteliers yester-
day welcomed the Minister of
Tourism’s announcement that
measures would be taken to help
reduce the cost of travel both
from North America and to the
Family Islands, each identifying
cost as the biggest obstacle to
“putting heads in beds” in the
family islands.

However, some rejected the
idea proposed by the Minister
that Family Island visitor num-
bers have been depressed by a
lack of marketing.

agers at resorts in Cat Island,

vate sector organisation, has been

TAXI drivers and tour opera-

audio tours of New Providence
to visitors of all nationalities
thanks to‘a new GPS mapping
of the island.

Minister of Tourism and Avi-
ation Vincent Vanderpool-Wal-

a private company has mapped
the island of New Providence
using the Global Navigation
Satellite System.

Private companies and drivers
can now install GPS systems in
their vehicles and download the-
necessary software in order to
conduct tours in various lan-
guages. “According to where
the vehicle is, there is an auto-
matic voice telling people what
they're looking at. So it is possi-
ble for a taxi driver to conduct a
tour in Japanese without under-
standing a single word-of Japan-
ese,” said the minister.

detention, rape, armed robbery

@ By NATARIO McKENZIE



TWO men appeared in a Magistrate’s Court
yesterday on charges of forcible detention,
rape and armed robbery.

Renardo Bastian,18, of Knowles Drive off
the Tonique Williams Darling Highway; and
Ricardo Alton Knowles, 20, of Butter Street,
Nassau Village, hobbled to Court One in Bank
Lane yesterday afternoon, visibly in pain.

Knowles — who according to his attorney
Roger Gomez Jr, had been shot more than
five times — struggled to breathe, gasping loud-

ly for air until a breathing apparatus was

brought to him.

It is alleged that the two men, being con-
cerned together on Sunday September 21,
forcibly detained and raped a 19-year-old
woman.

\. The prosecution claims that the two men,

being concerned with others and armed with
a handgun, robbed the 19 year old of $5 cash
and a $500 Motorolla Ming cellular phone.
It is also alleged that on the same date,
time and place, the accused robbed Trevor
Heastie of a white 1998 Nissan Maxima valued

at $5,000 and $11 in cash. The prosecution
also claims that the two men were in posses-
sion of an imitation firearm — a Delta Gold
Cup Colt Auto 10 mm pistol, with intent to
commit an indictable offence.

It is also alleged that the two men were
found in possession of a .38 bullet, a 9 mm bul-
let and a .357 bullet.

Court dockets also claim that Bastian was
found in possession of 325 rounds of shotgun
ammunition. :

The men were not required to plead to
these charges. >. ¢

In addition, the, men were charged with
being found in possession of a quantity of
marijuana. Both men pleaded not guilty to
the charge.

It is further alleged that on Sunday, Sep-
tember 7, the two men assaulted Lyndero
Mejias with a handgun, and that on the same
day, they kidnapped Mejias.

Court dockets also claim that the two men
forcibly detained and raped a 17-year-old girl,
as well as robbing her of $200, a $75 LG cel-
lular phone and a $250 digital camera.

Neither man was required to plead to these



funnier.

charges. The case was adjourned to October
16 and transferred to Court 11: in Nassau
Street. Chief Magistrate Roger Gomez
ordered that both men be remanded to Her
Majesty’s Prison.

Bastian’s attorney Willie Moss made an
application seeking to have his client taken
back to hospital before remand. Mr Moss also
requested that a medical report be submitted
to the court before the men are remanded to

‘prison.

Knowles’ attorney Roger Gomez Jr said
his client had been shot more than five times
and needed medication three times daily.

Mr Gomez also told the court that Knowles
had a ruptured lung and needed to use a
breathing apparatus every two to three min-
utes.

He said that Knowles’ bowels had been
ruptured and that two bullets had only been
removed from his body on Wednesday.

Chief Magistrate Gomez ordered that both
men receive medical attention before being
taken to Her Majesty’s Prison.

Thanks to the overwhelming success of Laughfest 2008, WizeGuy
Entertainment and B-Boy Entertainment are set to launch Comedy
Unplugged at Charlie’s Club, a weekly showcase of urban comedians
who have—until this point—only been seen on popular television
shows such as HBO’s Def Comedy Jam, Bad Boys of Comedy and the
ever popular BET’s Comic View.

Starting this Friday, and scheduled to run every Friday thereafter,
Comedy Unplugged will offer Bahamians a chance to see their favourite
performers live onstage. The party is billed as a three-pronged soiree;
6pm-8pm is Happy Hour, then an Open Mic competition will follow
which allows local, amateur and wannabe comedians a chance to show
their skills for weekly prizes. The professional comedians will then take
the stage, followed by an Afterparty with DJ CRX. ;

This week’s comedy headliner is Dexter Angry, who has been fea-
tured in Comedy Central’s Laugh Riot and NBC’s Last Comic Stand-
ing. Dexter was also a finalist for NBC’s Stand Up for Diversity, and
has worked with other famous comedians such as John Witherspoon
and Monique. Opening for Dexter will be Degario “Double D” Turn-
er, who has appeared numerous times on Comic View and opened for
many comedy stars, including Chris Tucker and. Rickey Smiley. _

Plans to put
immigration
forms online

TO save the Bahamian
government a significant
amount of money and ensure
that the collected visitor
information is 100 per cent
accurate, the Ministry of ©
Tourism plans to make
immigration forms available
online.

Speaking at a special pre-
sentation on revitalising
tourism at the British Colo-
nial Hilton on Wednesday,
Tourism and Aviation Minis-
ter Vincent Vanderpool-
Wallace said that visitors will
in future be able to fill out
the necessary immigration
forms and print them out
themselves before they trav-
el to the Bahamas.

This will reduce the num-
ber of forms the government
will have to produce every
year, thereby significantly
cutting costs.

Mr Vanderpool-Wallace

added that this new initiative>»«°

will also ensure that the

information collected will be. ;

more accurate as the visitors
fill out the details them-
selves, at their leisure and
expense.

“T just made it much sim-
pler for the customer, and
also the information in the
data base is much more
accurate.

“T don’t now have to go
and scan the stuff and some-
times have to go and correct
it, I know it’s correct because
the customer put it in them-
selves,” the minister said.

A furious legal battle has broken out
over a $10 million life insurance policy
taken out by Sir Orville Turnquest, with
his trustee accusing Florida-based insur-
ance companies of “misrepresentation.”

In response, Sir Orville has been
accused by one of the defendants of ini-
tiating a “legally and factually baseless”
legal action in an effort to avoid repaying
a newly-matured $1.5 million loan to a
bank in the United States.

This counter-claim was made against
the former Governor General, Deputy
Prime Minister, Minister of Foreign
Affairs and Justice, Bahamas Bar Asso-
ciation president and magistrate by a
defendant in a civil complaint filed by the
trustee for Sir Orville’s trust, Bahamas-
domiciled Dulaw Management Ltd.

Dulaw Management is a successor-
trustee of the Florida-based Sir Orville
Turnquest Irrevocable Insurance Trust.

It filed the civil complaint in the. Cir-

cuit Court for Broward County on June |

23, which was then transferred to the

US District Court for the Southern Dis-

trict on July 23.
The defendants listed are PHL Vari-
able Insurance Company, LaSalle Bank

i National Association, Coventry Capital

I LLC and Boundless Solutions Inc, pre-
viously known as Florida Profiles.

The civil case arose after a $10 mil-
lion insurance policy was taken out on
Sir Orville’s life in 2006, when he was
76.

His wife, Lady Edith Turnquest, was
named as sole beneficiary.

The hefty premiums on the policy
amounted to $540,000 per year, and in
order to pay this and other fees associ-

- ated with the policy, the Sir Orville Turn-

quest Irrevocable Insurance Trust bor-
rowed $1.5 million from US-based
LaSalle Bank, it was claimed in court

Sir Orville involved in battle _
over $10m life insurance policy

Turnquest accused of trying to

avoid repaying

documents.

In its complaint, Dulaw Management
asked for the policy to be rescinded,
claiming alleged breach of agreement,
misrepresentation and conversion.
Unspecified damages were also request-
ed.

Dulaw claimed that during the early
part of 2006, Sir Orville was approached
by Financial Profiles and.“‘induced” into
getting a life insurance policy with the
company that turned out to be “not as
represented”,

According to court documents the rep-
resentation made to induce Sir Orville
Turnquest into entering this transacton
was that “this policy would be a vehicle
whereby Sir Orville Turnquest could
market his insurability im a. way that
would obtain for him a substantial prof-

tee .

However, said the complaint, “by hav-
ing the right to veto the sale of the poli-
cy to a third party at the point of matu-
rity,” the defendants eliminated Sir
Orville’s ability to market the policy as
his own.

Dulaw said the transaction was in fact
a “scheme” by which LaSalle Bank
National Association, Coventry Capital

I LLC and Boundless Solutions Inc.

“could obtain large fees and, in the
process, convert to their own, the insur-
ability of Sir Orville, and ultimately end
up with a substantial policy in an amount
exceeding $10 million on the life of Sir
Orville Turnquest”.

It said this was done “by circumvent-
ing the laws relating to insurable interests

a $1.5m loan

as well as the public policy of the state of
Florida.”

The complaint added: “None of the
defendants herein .... at any time mater-
ial hereto ever possessed an insurable
interest in the life of Sir Orville Turn-
quest.” as

Following this, two defendants, Coven-
try and LaSalle Bank, filed motions to
dismiss the complaint and compel arbi-
tration.

Coventry claimed that what took place
was “a routine transaction by which a
loan was used to finance premiums on a
life insurance policy.”

Sir Orville was accused of “attempting
to extinguish his debt” by invalidating
the transaction.

“Now the loan has matured, Turn-
quest and the Trust are claiming for the
first time that the transaction was a
sham,” said Coventry.

“The core allegation on which all of
the Plaintiff’s claims are based is that
the premium finance transaction trans-
forms a valid insurance policy into an
illegal ‘wagering contract’.”

This allegation was “legally and fac-
tually baseless,” as well as “procedural-
ly improper” in that the contracts

between the parties require disputes to.

be settled by arbitration, not litigation,
added the company’s claim.
Meanwhile, PHL in its counter-claim
said that “if the facts alleged within the
plaintiff's complaint are true” then the
company has a “significant fraud claim”
against the former Governor General,
along with Coventry, LaSalle and

years, the House for 12 of the last 14 years
and the Senate for most of that time as
well. But if trends continue, that run is
about to come to an end.

With less than four weeks to Election
Day, polls today suggest that Democrat
Barack Obama will sit in the White House
come January, enjoying enhanced majori-
ties in both the House and Senate. And if
that’s how things play out, John McCain is _
doomed to be cast as the scapegoat by his
fellow Republicans, in part because they
never really liked him much in the first

piace.

Sarah Palin, by contrast, will reign as the
party’s crown princess.

- You can already see the mythology
beginning to take shape. Palin is being posi-
tioned by conservative media outlets as

- the stalwart defender of the faith, the true
believer who is fighting the infidel with all
her power but lacks a committed partner in
‘McCain.

**Palin’s the one making the arguments
that conservatives most want to hear, such
as accusing Obama of “palling around with
terrorists.” When the McCain campaign
decided to pull out of Michigan, it was
Palin who repeatedly and publicly dis-
agreed, insisting that the cause was not yet
lost and that she could turn things around.
» Palin’s star will shine even brighter in
defeat than in victory, and that would not
bode well for her party.

The GOP’s political problems have many
causes, but distilled to its essence, it can be
stated in one sentence: The Republican
Party hasn’t taken seriously the responsi-
bilities of governing.

In fact, if the Republicans could govern
as expertly and as diligently as they cam-
paign — if they simply cared as much about
governing as campaigning — the country

might today be reaping the benefits of great

prosperity and global respect, and the
Democrats would have gone the way of
the Whigs. _

But look around: That’s not exactly how
things are.

The foundations of Republican success
on the campaign trail have been appeals to
tribal politics — “they” aren’t like “us” —

and the easy answers of ideology. But once
in power, tribal politics, fixed ideology and
a disdain for the hard work of governance
have proved disastrous.

Unfortunately, Palin epitomizes that
mindset. Tribal politics, easy ideology and
disdain for governance define her as a can-
didate. In the wake of Tuesday’s debate,
Joe Biden was making the rounds of the
morning talk shows, chatting up his candi-
date’s performance, while Sarah Palin was
nowhere to be found. Why? Because she is
an icon incapable of conversing as an intel-
ligent adult on the issues of the day. Yet the
Republican base loves her anyway, as a
symbol.

In response to such criticism, Palin’s
defenders point out that Barack Obama is
also short on experience. It’s a legitimate
point — it is certainly fair to question
whether Obama has the experience to do
well as president of the United States.

However, there is no question whatso-
ever that Obama has studied the issues
and knows them backward and forward.
He takes the job seriously. You may dis-
age with the conclusions he, has reached,
but as the campaign has demonstrated, he
knows the issues and has thought them
through.

Palin can’t even make a good pretence of
that. This country needs a more effective
Republican Party. The Democrats need a
more effective Republican Party to pro-
tect them from their own excesses. But to
become effective again, the Republicans
have to change, and they show no sign of
doing so. Quite the contrary.

If the GOP loses seats in the House and

Senate, those losses are likely to come in .

more moderate districts, distilling the GOP
caucus even closer to its ultraconservative
base. If McCain loses, conservatives. will
explain his loss by the fact that he tried to
repudiate rather than celebrate party ide-
ology.

And if Republicans designate Sarah Palin
as the face of the party’s future, as they
se-m eager to do, they will confirm the
be -f that they just aren’t serious enough
to trust with power.

‘Fallen’ lawyers
should have a
chance of
redemption —

EDITOR, The Tribune.

As one of the few disbarred

lawyers in the Commonwealth of

The Bahamas, I was pleased to
note in the press that one of my
fellow ‘fallen’ colleagues, Lec
Smith, had applied for and had
been granted a public hearing for
an application to be readmitted to
the Bar.

Disbarment is the ‘ultimate’
punishment for an attorney who
would have grossly infringed the
ethics of the legal profession
and/or abused his/her client's
trust.

Of course, the misappropria-
tion or co-mingling of clients’
funds has always been cause for
grave disciplinary measures. This
is, dear readers, the way it should
be.

A lawyer, by the very nature
of his/her training and the tradi-
tional respect which attaches to
the profession, is under an almost
sacred duty and obligation
towards his/her client and the
general public.

As an “officer of the court” an
attorney is obliged to conduct
his/her practice in an ethical and

~ honourable manner.

His/her public behaviour and
demeanour must also reflect the
highest possible standards.

I was rightfully disbarred more

than a decade ago for the misap- ,

propriation of less than B15,000.
After the Disciplinary Commit-
tee would have added on interest;
legal costs and a punitive amount
that figured ballooned to over
B$40,000.

Thanks to having a varied eco-
nomic portfolio, I was able to dis-
pgse of some real estate; moto.
vehicles and stocks so as to be

able to discharge, in full, my debt -

with my then client.

It was not. easy but, like
Hezekiah of old, I turned to the
wall and cried out: “Lord remem-
ber thy servant, Ortland.”

He answered my supplication



LETTERS

letters@triounemedia.net




and has, gracefully, put in place a
systematic process by which I am
gradually being publicly rehabili-
tated and accepted again.

Being a disbarred lawyer in
The Bahamas, especially having
such a high public profile as
myself, is no cake walk.

Putative friends and erstwhile
professional colleagues will dump
you like a hot potato.

Many of my relatives (inclusive
of brothers and sisters) promptly
abandoned me and my cause.

For a long time I was forced to
live in my Volkswagon and used
the precincts of the cemetery up
at Mount Carey Baptist Church
on Fox Hill Road, opposite Step
Street, as my personal bathroom.
Chicken snacks (thigh or breast)
was my dietary staple.

I became adept at hustling and
literally begging from the occa-
sional friend or acquaintance.

Like a wild man without a pur-
pose, I travelled up and down the
earth (England; France; Ger-
many; Switzerland and Belgium)
trying to find solace and comfort
from the mental and emotional
stress of being unceremoniously
disbarred and disgraced.

Until I went into the House of
The Lord (literally) in 1991
(Evangelistic Temple pastured by
Reverend Gary Curry and Pas-
tor Vaughan Cash), I was almost
on the brink of becoming a Sandi-
lands patient or worse.

. As soon as I entered the sanc-
tuary up at Evangelistic Temple,
The Spirit of The Lord God came
upon me and I knew that I had
been healed and that the stellar
opportunity was available for me
to call on Yahweh for salvation.
He did not disappoint me as I laid
all of my personal and profes-

sional transgressions at the foot of
the Cross.

I say all of the above to let
young legal practitioner’ realise
that unethical behaviour will
result in some form of discipli-
nary action, even disbarment.
Except you be like Ortland H
Bodie Jr, rough and tough, you
would not be able to survive such
a scenario without the ever pre-
sent help of The Lord.

And so, when I read a portion
of the submissions made by Mil-
ton Evans, Esq, on behalf of his
client for reinstatement in The
Tribune, I was flabbergasted to
say the least.

Yes, Smith must have “suffered
enough” since his disbarment, less
than a few short years ago but
what about me who wouid have
been off the rolls for exactly 20
long, long years, despite having
obtained a Deed of Release from
my former client?

The Devil is still a liar, but I
am more than persuaded that The
Lord will, again, stoop down to
ensure that I obtain justice and
mercy, at His command.

Lawyers who mess up, profes-
sionally, should be allowed to
resume their practices once they
would have made full monetary
restitution and would have paid
public penance.

Of course, such individuals
must also submit to terms and
conditions upon readmission to
the Bar.

In the meantime, however, offi-
cials of the Bar Council should
take stock of the professional
ethics and observance thereof of
themselves and should release a.
detailed list of all of those practi-
tioners who have current and out-
standing complaints against them
post haste.“To God then, in all
things, be the glory.

man, in this country is cut his
or her pay,” said Mr. Archer.
His remarks were also a slap
in the face to all hard working
citizens who pay those same
BTC salaries particularly as
many of us don't consider
BTC a very 'Hard Working'
corporation. Would Mr.
Archer pay his staff for tak-
ing time off work without per-
mission?

What consideration was
given the rest of the country
and our visitors by the union
and their sheep-like followers
before carrying out their dis-
ruptive agenda and what cost
to tax payers and businesses
alike? As long as the unions
and people of Mr. Archer’s
ilk continue to encourage their

followers to engage in activi-
ties of this sort, and they have
nothing to do with freedom of
expression, and so long as the
authorities continue to con-
done or ignore them then this
country’s inevitable slide
towards anarchy will contin-
ue.
Hopefully one day we will

hold politicians and union offi-

cials legally accountable for
the destructive actions of their
minions, and a little jail time, a
hefty fine, or both would give
them a new perspective on the
views of the hard working
common man.

Former BIG

president is new:

PUC executive
director

MICHAEL Symonette, for-
mer president of the Bahamas
Telecommunications Compa-
ny, has been appointed as the
new executive director of the
Public Utilities Commission.

PUC chairman Anthony
Rolle announced that the
appointment became effective
on October 1.

Mr Symonette, who served
as a member of the PUC since
July 2007, succeeds Barrett
Russell who retired in June of
this year.

A graduate of South Hall
College of Technology, he
holds a diploma in electrical
and electronics engineering.

Mr Symonette was
employed with the Bahamas
Telecommunications Corpora-
tion, which later became BTC,
from 1960 to 2006.

He spent his last 11 years at
BTC as president and Chief
Executive Officer.

Mr Symonette also pursued
several management courses
and holds diplomas from the
University of Miami, Harvard
University, and the National
University of Singapore. He is
a member and past, vice-presi-
dent of the Bahamas Institu-
tion of Professional Engineers.

At the PUC, he heads a staff

of over 20, mostly profession-
als. As the executive director
of the telecommunications sec-
tor regulator, his responsibili-
ties include the day-to-day
administration of the affairs of
the PUC.

He will also provide advice
and guidance on executing the
PUC’s functions, develop and
recommend policies affecting °
all PUC activities, and develop
and implement management
‘strategies on regulatory and |
personnel matters.

The PUC was established on

March 1, 2000, under the pro-
visions of the Utilities Com-
mission Act 1993.

PUC was established for the
economic regulation of elec-
tricity, telecommunications,
water and sewerage and
propane gas. To date, it has
only been given the regulatory
authority over telecommunica-
tions. The government will

determine when PUC becomes

the regulator for the other sec-
tors.

15 month sentence for defrauding

the Bahamas Tourist Board in England

A MARKETING executive working in
England for the Bahamas Tourist Board
was convicted on charges of fraud and
theft.

Alexei King, 40, was sentenced to 15

‘months in jail for defrauding the Bahamas

Tourist Board to support an on-line gam-
bling addiction, the Caribbean World News
reported yesterday.

According to the Luton Crown Court
documents, King set up a sideline business
of selling cheap Bahamas vacations using
his employers’ money to finance the scam.

King, of Appledore Road, Bedford, was
hired by the Tourist Board in 1999.

to arrange trips to the Bahamas for people
who could then promote the country as a
holiday destination.

Prosecutor Bozzy Sheffi told the Luton
Crown Court that for several years, King
worked well and was successful in fulfilling
his mandate.

However, last year he began to engage in
fraudulent practices.

One aspect of King’s job was to arrange
trips for ordinary people who would per-
sonally pay him about a third of the actual
cost of the vacation. However, the Tourist
Board was unwittingly picking up the tab.

Towards the end of the year he was

ing people who had previously travelled
to the Bahamas.

He told these holiday makers that if they
made up a party of 10 they could have a
free stay. ©

Many people paid up front, but the fraud
was uncovered before the trips took place.

Ms Sheffi said the Tourist Board com-
pensated everyone who had lost money
and that they had lost £26,450 ($45, 560) ,
through King’s dishonesty.

King pleaded guilty to three charges of _
fraud and two of theft and asked for 16
similar offences to be taken into consider-
ation.

said: “This is a tragedy for a proud man
who has fallen from grace. He saw him-
self as an ambassador for the Bahamas
and had everything going for him. He feels
he has disgraced those he was promoting.

“His gambling had gripped him and he
tried to deal with the problem but the debt
did not go away.

“He knew for several months that he
was going to be arrested but he did not
run away and remained to face the music.”

Judge Barbara Mensah said: “The sheer
dishonesty cannot be ignored. Your breach
of trust had an impact on the standing of

‘those who employed you and on their

finances.”

As part of his job he was given a budget

, Attorney says those wronged

by corrupt lawyers should
file criminal complaints

PERSONS who have been
wronged by corrupt lawyers should
file criminal complaints and agi-
tate for the lawyers in question to
be prosecuted instead of only rely-
ing on the Bar Association to take
disciplinary action, Attorney Gen-
eral Michael Barnett said.

Mr Barnett is also calling for the . °

creation of a special collective fund,
out of which those persons who
were hoodwinked by lawyers can
receive some sort of compensation.

Speaking as a guest on the
GEMS talk show “Tell It Like It
Is” hosted by Sean McWeeney, the
attorney general also addressed the
hot-button issue of repeat or vio-
lent offenders receiving bail,
strengthening the witness protec-
tion programme, and the enforce-
ability of capital punishment.

As it concerns dishonest lawyers,
Mr Barnett said he is right now
reviewing the Legal Profession Act
to detetmine ways to strengthen
the disciplinary clauses.

In the meantime, he advises the
public to be proactive if they have
been swindled.

“Persons who have been aggriev-
ed, wronged by dishonest acts by
lawyers, should not restrict their
efforts to simply disciplinary mat-
ters before the Bar Association.
They should lodge criminal com-
plaints and have these persons
prosecuted for criminal acts.

“They should sue them and
recover damages," said Mr Bar-
nett said.

With regard to his idea for a
compensation fund for lawyer’s vic-

tims, he said: "You may not be able
to restore them to the position that
they were at before, but the pro-
fession as a whole must find a way
to demonstrate that they are con-
cerned about the behaviour of their
colleagues, because the behaviour
of their colleagues reflects on
them.”

Recently, Andrew Thompson
was disbarred after he did not
return hundreds of thousands of
dollars he was accused of misap-
propriating from numerous clients.

Bail

Further addressing the contro-
versial issue of repeat offenders
receiving bail, Mr Barnett said: "I
share the frustration and the con-
cern with members of the public
when persons charged with serious
offenses who are perceived to be
threats to society are permitted to
go on bail.

“Parliament spoke to that in
1996 when they enacted legislation
that sought to restrict the ability of
those persons to obtain bail.

"That statute of provisions has
been construed in a manner which
gives, or preserves discretion to
courts who exercise discretion in a
particular way — I don’t want to
say more because there is present-
ly an appeal with respect to a num-
ber of those decisions. But it is cer-
tainly a matter that the society
ought to be concerned about and
its certainly a matter that warrants
further consideration both by the
executives, by parliament and by

arranging trips for 2008 and was approach-

Michael Barnett

the judiciary,” he said.

Mr Barnett said while capital
punishment still remains on
Bahamian law books, a 2006 Privy
Council ruling that abolished the
mandatory death sentence for per-
sons found guilty of murder means
that the courts have to allow the
appeals of persons on death row
to be heard.

“Now that doesn't say that you
can't execute,” he added, “‘but what
is important is that these persons
who are charged with offenses that
warrant executions, they are tried
and the appellate process is con-
ducted in an expeditious manner
and the law allowed to take its
course," said Mr Barnett.

He also said the protection. of
witnesses in capital cases is a "wider
issue" and an “increasing matter
of concern to the society and the
state" that has to be addressed.

Mario Miller’s mother says

God sustained her through
loss of son, trial collapse

Satellites collect data on
sea temperatures, reefs.

@ WEST PALM BEACH, Fla.

SATELLITES are helping scientists expand a virtual network to
watch for increases in ocean temperatures that can damage or kill
the fragile ecosystems of coral reefs worldwide, according to Asso-
ciated Press.

The National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration said
Thursday its Coral Reef Watch network has been expanded from
24 to 190 locations, including sites in the Florida Keys, the
Caribbean, Gulf of Mexico, the Indian and Pacific oceans, Indone-
sia, Australia and Hawaii.

The agency uses onsite water instruments to monitor ocean tem-
per ratures at about a dozen reefs. The expanded system uses satel-
ites to remotely monitor water temperature and other factors
without the high cost of deploying devices.

A mere 2-degree rise in typical summertime water temperature
can stress corals, causing the tiny marine creatures that form reefs
to expel algae living in their tissues. The so-called bleaching upsets
the symbiotic nature of the ecosystem by exposing their white
skeletons.

Many corals can recover from a mild, short-lived bleaching event.
But if it occurs over a longer period, entire colonies die. The
Caribbean region has lost at least 50 percent of its corals, largely
because of warmer seas. ,

“Bleaching is a major threat to the health of endangered coral
reef ecosystems across the earth,” NOAA administrator and retired
Navy Vice Adm. Conrad C. Lautenbacher said. “The expansion of
this critical climate monitoring tool will help us better track, under-
stand and mitigate the impacts of warming waters that contribute

_to the bleaching damage.”

HELEN MILLER, the moth-
er of Mario Miller, says only
her faith in God has sustained
her through the loss of her son
and the collapse of the trial into
his murder.

Mario was the victim of a
gruesome homicide over six
years ago, and the trial of two
men accused of his killing cap-
tured the attention of the entire
country leading up to the ver-
dict, which was handled down
on Tuesday.

The trial ended in a hung jury
as 11 jurors found the accused
guilty and one found him inno-
cent. The case will have to be
re-tried again early next year.

Throughout this ordeal, Mrs
Miller and her daughter Yas-
mine Miller-Johnson, along
with Mario’s father Leslie
Miller, have been permanent
fixtures in the court room.

During the trial, and even fol-
lowing the disappointing turn
out, Mrs Miller'said faith in
God has sustained her.

“All during the time of the
trial, the Lord told me to just
trust him. And in trusting God.
It means that no matter what
the circumstances are you have
that peace.

“So I was not really that
bothered as Leslie and Yasmine
because I was standing on the
word of God. So I’m just trust-
ing Him, and if that’s the way it

whatever, I know that he is
working it out.

“And this is the first time in
my whole Christian life that I
have learned what it truly
means to trust in God. I feel
that I am fully under the wings

It is this deep and unshakable
devotion to God, Mrs Miller
said, that has sustained her and
kept her strong despite the
great pain she felt throughout
the trial.

“No matter what season I go
through in life, I will always
stand on the hill and tell of the

think of anything that will come
my way that I still cannot say
that God has been faithful and I
can trust him and this is just
another one of those experi-
ences for me,” she said.

Thinking back on the memo-
ry of her son, Mrs Miller said
she knew that Mario loved her
and was always there for her.
It is with this in mind that she
feels that if Mario were alive

today, he would tell her te not
allow anything to cause her
faith to falter.

“This is extremely painful.
Trusting God does not mean
that we don’t feel the pain. It
just means that He helps us to
go through it. And this has been
extremely painful for me and at
times, full of shame. For your
child, simply his name, to be
used with drugs - this is not
what I taught Mario; so this
whole situation has been like a
battering for me.

“Because I spent my entire
life with the youth of the nation
teaching about keeping away
from violence and drtgs and I
am still doing it. Even just imag-
ining that he participated in
something so sinister that in
itself can knock you off your
feet. But I still have to continue
what I’m doing, and I still have
to stand.”

Mrs Miller said that she still
does not know where and how
her son died as she has heard
many different accounts of that

} dreadful day over six years ago.

“T hope to really find out the
real story one day.”

Mario’s younger sister Yas-
mine has also done her best to

handle the ordeal with grace
and dignity. As the siblings
were very close, Mrs Miller said ©
that the family had initially kept
many of the details of the mur-
der away from Yasmine as she
was pregnant when Mario was
killed.

Yasmine said that trial and
its outcome were therefore like
losing Mario “all over again”.
She said the outcome of the tri-
al was extremely disappointing,
as a hung jury brings the family
no closer to resolution.

Reality

“T think I miss him more than
anything now. I don’t think I
truly had an opportunity to
grieve for him because I had to
be strong for my parents and
then at the time I was pregnant
with my second son, Mario. So I
kind of blocked it out, but this
case actually brought everything
to reality for me, and I was able
to truly, at some points, feel the
pain that my brother actually
felt,” she said.

Mrs Miller-Johnson also took
issue with the way her brother
was portrayed during the trial.
She felt he was described as
“less than human”.

“If you listen to some of the
attorneys, one made a state-
ment like, ‘Mario was a drug
dealer, and so shall you live, so
shall you die’. But Mario was
loved. Whatever he was
involved in, he would never dis-
cuss things like that with me,
mommy or daddy, especially
mommy. So he could never
come to us with anything like
that.

“But the brother I had, the
way they tried to portray him,
he was not that type of person.
And in response to what the
attorney said, ‘so shall you live,
so shall you die’, then the good
die young and fast. He was a
human.

' “And I think this whole thing
for me is just devastating,” she
said.

Haiti needs
$107m for
stabilisation

after storms

m@ By LLOYD L ALLEN

Tribune Staff Reporter

HAITI requires a total of
$107 million to stabilise the
country following the
onslaught of several tropical
storms and hurricanes.

Speaking at a consulate
luncheon on Wednesday,
Haitian Ambassador to the
Bahamas Louis Harold
Joseph said that from
August 15 to September 8,
the struggling Caribbean
nation was repeatedly bat-
tered by numerous storms
and hurricanes, which has
lead to an extremely chaotic
environment in the country.

So far, about 22 per cent
of the required sum of
$107,714,621 has been col-
lected. |

However, even with coun-
tries like the United States
and Canada already con-
tributing close to $15 million
collectively, and with the
Bahamas pledging around
$500,000, and CARICOM
promising another $10 mil-
lion, Ambassador Joseph
said there is still a great
need for relief aid.

He explained that the
most of the donated money
is needed for food, shelter,
social and health services.

While other areas are also
in need of assistance, these
are the most important ones,
requiring an immediate -
response, he said.

A month after Haiti was
first hit by Hurricane Fay,
Hurricane Gustav struck,
followed closely by Tropical
Hannah. A final blow was

then dealt by the devastating

Hurricane Ike, which
claimed the lives of almost
800 Haitians.

The ambassador said that

- many.more could still die
due the lack of food and
medical care.

Ambassador Joseph
explained that due to signifi-
cant levels of soil erosion
throughout the country,
many of the major food pro-
ducing areas have been
destroyed.

As agricultural sites have
ceased production, millions
of persons have been left
suffering from a food short-
age.

This situation, the ambas-
sador said, has evolved into

a health crisis, increasing the :

social and economic imbal-
ance in the country.

Ambassador Joseph also
noted that the area of
Gonaives in northern Haiti
has been devastated by the

storms.

Many access roads in that
area are still inaccessible for
vehicles, leaving health and
aid workers with no option
but to travel by helicopters.

As of October 1, Ambas-
sador Joseph said there have
been 793 deaths, 69 missing,
and 307 injured people as
the result of the storms.

A total of 151,421 Haitian
families are affected.in some
way or the other, he said.

The ambassador said that
based on a report by the
United Nations Office for
the Continuation of Human-
itarian Affairs, some 3,069
Ibs of seedlings have already
been distributed to farmers

throughout the country in an

effort to restart the halted
agricultural industry. ,

Though the ambassador
called this effort by the UN
a-“valiant” one, it is still not
enough.

Ambassador Joseph said _

that persons who interested
in donating food, clothes, or

funds to the Haiti, can either é

office, or visit

BY THE end of this month,

the first of these concerns is
“non-revenue water” - water

ENVIRONMENTAL experts
say all Bahamians should be

is dumped, regardless of who they
hired to remove it.

The Bahamas National Trust

responsible for their trash if illegal
dumping is to be stopped.

“At the moment there is an ‘out

towards garbage disposal and any-

their trash should care about where
it ends up,” said the BNT in astate-

Bonefish Pond and areas along
Cowpen Road have been plagued
with illegal dumping for many
years. Two years ago that BNT
took a trucking company to court
for dumping in the park and won a
judgment against the offender.

“Typically, trucks are hired to
take rubbish from a household or a
respectable business, unfortunate-
ly they often do not make it to the
landfill to offload their cargo.
Those visiting the park on Saturday
were shocked to find company
logos visually evident in much of
the garbage found in the park,” the
BNT said.

The landfill on Harrold Road is
the only legal dumpsite on New
Providence. Only loads that are
300lbs and above are charged a
modest fee of $10.

Mr Neymour explained that
an additional reason for
installing the water mains is to
improve customer service.

“Late last year we received a
number of complaints from the
residents from the Eastern Road
and the Fox Hill areas com-

said,

which is financing. I think that’s going to be the fun-
damental question—the government is going to have
to appreciate that for any results that he is seeking to
do they are going to have to spend money to fix the
product,” said Mr Wilchcombe.

Mr Vanderpool-Wallace gave a televised address
laying out his new and in some respects “radical”
master plan for tourism at the British Colonial Hilton
on Wednesday.

Among other changes, he said it involves rebrand-
ing and-more aggressively marketing the Family
Islands, making Bahamas.com the Ministry’s
“tourism office” for the world, taking steps to cause
airlines to reduce the cost of travel to the Bahamas,

_ and targeting new markets like Brazil and China.

He also said he had “re-focused” the Ministry’s
budget, cutting back on “low priority” projects.

While Mr Vanderpool-Wallace did not put a clear
timeline on the roll-out period for the strategy, yes-

. terday Mr Wilchcombe said he sees it as “frankly, a

et



ten to twenty year plan that’s short medium and
longterm.”

“T have a lot of confidence in Vince Vanderpool
Wallace, and I believe in his ability, and I believe he
is a nationalist who wants the best for this country
and he’s going to do all he can. He’s going to burn the:
midnight oil, I’ve worked with him and I have no rea-
son to doubt what he is saying.

“We've got a lot of work to do but it’s obviously
thought out. He obviously knows this Bahamas — he
understands the global tourism picture but it’s not
going to be easy.”

Mr Wilchcombe said Mr Vanderpool-Wallace will
have a particularly hard road ahead of him because
of a lack of foresight displayed by Prime Minister
Hubert Ingraham.

“T criticised the Ingraham administration for one
thing. His first appointment (of Neko Grant). We’re
off target. We could’ve, I think, cushioned the blow
if we were forecasting and looking ahead. We were .

not. And so what happened was we hit rock bottom
and now Vince has to really rebuild the whole thing,”
said the ex-minister.

As for Mr Vanderpool-Wallace’s suggestion that
steps will be taken to reduce the cost of flights from
the U.S. to the Bahamas by, among other things,

‘reducing associated taxes levied on airlines, Mr

Wilchcombe pointed to one major “outstanding
issue” that must be addressed if costs to airlines
landing in this country are to be lowered.

“The overtime that’s paid to customs, it was up to
around $5 million when I was (Minister). That has
impacted (airline’s) arrivals and they have been very
concerned about it. So I suppose (Vanderpool-Wal-
lace) is going to work with the minister responsible
for customs and the union to find a way to reduce

’ that overtime cost and if you could do that all the air-

lines would be impacted significantly,” he said.

As for the idea that there must be greater “brand-
ing” and marketing of individual Family Islands, the
ex-minister said this was something he totally agrees

with and in fact came under fire for when minister

from New Providence-based hotels.

Mr Wilchcombe said he believes Mr Vanderpool-
Wallace will “make a major impact in tourism” if he
can “get his staff performing at the level they really
should and get the technology performing” because
he is “able to get support on all sides of the political
fence, he’s able to get support from the industry, he
understands the public-private sector participation
more so than most politicians do.” ;

He also gave a warning: “What we must do in the
future is that governments must not come in and
just arbitrarily make changes because they have the
power to do:so. It doesn’t make sense because you
mess around with the economy. You don’t under-
stand that just one decision could cause an airline to
pull out, an airline to close its doors or cause you to
lose a piece of the market.”

think that’s the problem.”

Adding that he knows Mr Van-
derpool-Wallace has the
Bahamas’ “best interests at
heart,” Mr Thurston also said he
sees access and cost as the main
prohibiting factors.

After a good first five years,
his resort is down 40 per cent on
bookings this year, Mr Thurston
said.

“T hope his new plaris do come
and do something positive for us
because we do desperately need
it,” he said.

On Wednesday, Mr Vander-
pool Wallace said: “We have
been making the Out Islands look
as if once you have seen one you
have seen them all, and there is
no reason for you to go there. We
are going to make sure that the
products we have available are
much more differentiated than
what we have ever done before in
the islands of the Bahamas.”

He said the Ministry will begin
marketing the Bahamas “as a
region...not a destination.”

He also said that the Ministry
will be strengthening the
Bahamas.com website to make it

more attractive to potential visi-!”!
tors; with more videos and music *"

to entice tourists. ’ :
The Out Islands Promotion
Board has been operating for
“over twenty years” and has its
own user-friendly website which
details the resorts and activities
that are available on individual
Family Islands, including Abaco,
Eleuthera, Acklins and Bimini,
According to President Jeff
Birch, also principal owner of the
Androsia company and the Small
Hope Bay Lodge on Andros, the
Board has in recent years spent
between “$500,000 to $700,000 in
partnership with members and
ministry of tourism” promoting
Out Island tourism each year.
Now, according to Mr Birch,
the board and its members “who
are experts in Family Island
tourism” and represent 65 differ-
ent properties expect to have
input into how $3-5 miillion of

Government money will be spent
promoting the Family Islands.

Mr Thurston says he hopes
money will be spent on encour-
aging more “island hopping” by
visitors, an initiative first pro-
moted by Majestic Tours in the
Bahamas which has “served him
well.”

Mr Birch said he was impressed
by several parts of the new
tourism plan, and thinks there is
an “exciting synergy” now
between the public and private
sector to an extent not seen
before. i

He also praised what he said is

“a “feal business ‘orientation to

tourism that seems to be con-
cerned with the national welfare
and the betterment of all Bahami-
ans and it seems like it is less like-
ly to be interfered with by politi-
cally motivated interests.”

He added that “there’s no
question that (the Minister’s) con-
cept of the fact The Bahamas is a
huge nation in terms of square
miles is true, and that many peo-
ple have to fly over us to get to
their destination and when you
say. ‘The Bahamas’ they just don’t
think of multiple destinations,
they just don’t.”

Both Mr Birch and Mr
Thurston said they have confi-
dence in Mr Vanderpool-Wallace,
with Mr Birch stating that while
he is impressed with \.nat the
Minister has “been able to do in ©
the last two months...what
he is asking to do is a mammoth
task.”

Historian calls for exciting approach
to teaching children in the Caribbean

lm BY LINDSAY THOMPSON

Historian Dr Gail Saunders
called for a more “exciting
approach” to teaching children
in the Caribbean how to
becomé productive citizens.

She made the call in her pre-
sentation, *Rebuilding Societies
Through Education and Cul-
ture” at the 13th Conference of
Presidents and Governors-Gen-
eral of the Caribbean Commu-
nity on Monday.

“What is needed to cabiula
societies through education and
culture is to create excitement
in the classroom,” Dr Saunders
said. .

“Somehow we must learn
how to use new technology and
visual aids, and new methods
to create excitement to teach
our children history, literature,
science and other subjects.”

Dr Saunders took the heads -

of state on a journey through
the history of the Bahamas and
the Caribbean, from pre-eman-
cipation years to the 21st cen-
tury.

She said reforms in education
in the 1890s were followed with
school building programmes,
the introduction of standards
and more practical curricula in
secondary schools.

By the 1900s, the elementary
and secondary system of edu-
cation was firmly established in

HISTORIAN Dr Ga eaiitiers Suaiteesing the 13th Conference e
Presidents and Governors-General of the Caribbean Community on
rebuilding societies through education and culture. °

the British Caribbean, she said.

In The Bahamas, Majority
Rule heralded a new era in edu-
cation, which received the lion’s
share of the government’s bud-
get in 1967.

Additional reforms followed,
new schools were built, sec-
ondary education was expanded
and more attention given to ter-
tiary education including the
establishment of the College of
the Bahamas in 1974.

“The reforms in the Com-

monwealth Caribbean during
the independence era stressed
the need for equality in soci-
eties which suffered from the
effects of enslavement and colo-
nialism resulting in a lack of
confidence among its peoples
and also innate feelings of infe-
riority,” Dr Saunders said.
She noted that nearer to
Independence in 1973, there
was more interest in Bahamian
history and culture, and a thirst
to explore and to preserve the

Bahamian identity. “Bahami-
ans, who are mainly of African
descent, identified with their
African roots through art, poet-
ry, photography, dance, music,
folklore, the holding of festivals
— particularly Junkanoo.

_ “However, perhaps the most
ambitious project to showcase
Bahamian indigenous culture
was Jumbey Village, the brain-
child of parliamentarian
Edmund Moxey, which focused
on displaying traditional
Bahamian village life including
Bahamian music, art, history,
food and craft,” she said.

She pointed out that over the
years the world changed; capi-
talism and market forces have
become the main driving forces
inthe region...

And by the 1990s, the tech-
nological revolution which
resulted in the information age,
as' well as human resource
development, became critical
issues for the Caribbean if it
intends to compete globally.

“Education should teach chil-
dren to think critically, to train
the mind and to develop the
student to his or her full poten-
tial.

“More often than not, teach-
ers are too busy preparing chil-
dren to pass examinations
rather than educating them,”
Dr Saunders said.

Florida mayors welcome Bahamian to address community leaders

THREE Florida mayors were on hand
to welcome Bahamian Dr Myles Munroe
for a one day leadership training seminar.

The seminar drew more than 300 Flori-
da community leaders on Monday. The
mayors in attendance were: James Naugle
of Davie, Tom Truex of Fort Lauderdale
and Debbie Eisinger of Cooper.

Director of religious tourism for the

Ministry of Tourism Linville Johnson was ~

also on hand.

He said: "It was such a delight and
sense of pride to see in Florida yester-
. day a Bahamian impacting leaders of the
second largest state in America. I truly
feel blessed to sit at the feet of one of
the greatest communicators and influ-
encers of the world in modern times."

He added: "Dr Munroe through his

global work continues to support and
marketing efforts of the Ministry of
Tourism."

The event, which was hosted and spon-
sored by the Ministry of Tourism, Myles
Munroe International and the Broward
Pastors Network, addressed the issue of

_ leadership in times of crisis.
"In light of the present economic chal-

lenges facing the United States and its
inevitable effect on the Bahamas econo-
my, the call for this seminar and the
tremendous response of the community
leaders is evidence that this event is time-
ly and necessary," said Dr Munroe.

President of Broward Pastors Network,
Mario Bramnick said: "We need strong
leadership training during economic times
such as these.

“This seminar could not have come at a
better time. It is this kind of training we
need to take into the various sectors of
our community."

Florida community leader Pepe Ram-
nath said: "This is one to the most impor-
tant meeting we have had as one looks at
the present crisis facing our communi-
ties with many losing their jobs, houses
and livelihood.

“We need effective leadership response
to these challenges and Dr Munroe deliv-
ered.

“T look forward along with many of my
fellow leaders to come to the Bahamas
this November to attend the upcoming
Leaders Summit hosted ‘by Dr Myles
Munroe and his organisation. We need
more training."

Raising breast cancer awareness



EMPLOYEES of the Higgs and Johnson law firm participate in
the Lee National Denim Day to raise awareness of breast
cancer in the Bahamas.

THE month of October is National Breast Cancer Awareness
Month. The staff of the Higgs and Johnson law firm joined the
National Breast Cancer Awareness Initiative, the Cancer Society and
the Sister Sister Cancer Support Group by participating in the
annual Lee National Denim Day on October 3, 2008.

This initiative was started in 1996 by Lee Jeans employees and has
grown to become one of the largest single-day fundraisers by raising
more than $70 million in the fight against breast cancer.

The management of Higgs and Johnson relaxed the dress code for
that day and allowed staff members to wear their favorite jeans
with the designated pink or white T-shirts. In addition, pink pins and
wristbands were also purchased and worn. Higgs and Johnson
joined millions around the world on that day in an effort to increase
awareness of breast cancer. It is the ongoing hope that this will help
in one day finding a cure against the disease.

RASHAD MCCANTS scored 13
of his 15 points in the fourth quarter
and Rodney Carney and Ryan
Gomes hit consecutive 3s to help
Minnesota spoil the Oklahoma City
Thunder’s preseason debut with an
88-82 victory Wednesday night.

The game was the Thunder’s first
since the team moved from Seattle
to Oklahoma City during the off-
season.

The Thunder led 71-62 with 9:54
remaining, but McCants scored 11
of Minnesota’s next 14 points, tying
the score at 76 with a dunk with
4:45 remaining.

“IT had a pretty rough first half,”
McCants said. “I really couldn’t get
it going. I got in foul trouble. My
teammates carried me. I needed to
get to the line a little bit more.”

Two free throws by McCants and
the consecutive 3s by Carney and
Gomes gave the Wolves an 84-78
lead with 2:23 remaining.

A basket by Chris Wilcox pulled
the Thunder to 84-80 with 2:11
remaining, but Sebastian Telfair
made a basket and two free throws
to finish the scoring for Minneso-
ta, which had a 22-60 record last
season.

“In the fourth quarter, coach puts
the players on the floor he knows
can sustain runs, play defense, put
some points on the board,”
McCants said. “In the fourth quar-
ter we did all those things. We made
stops. ,

“We withstood their runs and we
were able to make one of our own
and then were able to keep the lead.
In the past, we weren’t able to do
those things. We’d get up and when
we'd lose the lead we'd be finished
for the rest of the game.”



Al Jefferson added 13 points and ‘

nine rebounds for the Wolves (2-0)
and Corey Brewer finished with 11
points. Kevin Love and Carney each
finished with 10.

Damien Wilkins led the Thunder
with 19 points, including a layup to
tie the score at 78 with 3:04 to play.
McCants fouled out on the play, but
Wilkins missed the free throw.
Wilcox added 17 points for the
Thunder, Russell Westbrook had
13 and Kevin Durant finished with
10 points and seven rebounds.

Oklahoma City led 41-40 at half-

‘time after trailing by as many as 12

points in the first quarter.

“We dug a big hole early. I was
really happy with the way we got
back in it on defense,” Thunder
coach P.J. Carlesimo said. “The
defense was good until five-minute
mark in the fourth quarter. Then
we just did a very poor job. We
fouled and compounded it with



sloppy execution. You can’t turn it
over the way we did.”

Still, he said he was encouraged
with the team’s effort after seven
days of practice.

“TY don’t like the loss,” Carlesimo
said. “I especially don’t like the way
we lost.”

But he was happy to hold the

‘Timberwolves to 88 points after

they scored 117 in a win over Mil-
waukee on Monday.

Timberwolves coach Randy
Wittman said his team played solid
as a group, despite some shooting
troubles.

“That was a good game to still
grind out a win when you shoot 37
percent,” he said.

NOTES: Durant made the first
basket for the Thunder with 11:03
left in the first quarter.

* Wilcox followed with an alley-

Heat on Thursday night in an exhibition game.

Michael Beasley, the second overall draft pick in June,
scored 21 points for the Heat but missed a chance to

rested in the third and fourth quarters, while Vince
Carter was limited to only eight points for the Nets.

The Heat led 41-29 in the second quarter, but the

Federer to
play Madrid
Masters
after layoff

@ TENNIS
MADRID, Spain
Associated Press



RO’ ER
FEDERER
will play at
the Madrid
Masters next
week, ending
a three-week
layoff and
setting up a
possible
meeting with
top-ranked
Rafael Nadal.

“Without a doubt it’s a
wonderful thing knowing we
can count on Roger Federer
being here for another year,”
tournament director Manolo
Santana said on Thursday.

The second-ranked Feder-
er won the tournament in
2006 and was runner-up last
year. The Swiss star skipped
this week’s Stockholm Open
saying he needed rest as he
continues to rebound from a
bout of mononucleosis at the
start of the year. :

If the world’s top players
meet in the tournament,
which starts Monday, it
would be the first time since
Nadal ended Federer’s bid
for a sixth straight Wimble-
don crown in June. The
Spaniard then assumed the
No. 1 ranking, which the
Swiss had held for a record
237 weeks.

Fede.cr was knocked out
of the Olympic tournament
in Beijing where Nadal won
the gold medal.

“Madrid’s conditions and
the type of surface are ideal
for Roger’s game,” said San-
tana, a former Wimbledon
winner. “We hope he arrives
refreshed and that he can
allow us to enjoy his best ten-
nis.”

Kohlschreiber advanced
when third-seeded Juan Mar-
tin del Potro pulled out due
to inflammation in his right
toe. Kohlschreiber will meet
fifth-seeded Fernando Ver-
dasco ou Friday.

The eighth-seeded Monfils
beat Radek Stepanek of the
Czech Republic 6-4, 6-3 and
will play second-seeded Fer-
nando Gonzalez of Chile.

Lopez, who won the tour-
nament in 2004, defeated San-
tiago Giraldo of Colombia 7-6
(5), 6-3. He will play Melzer, a
7-6 (4), 6-3 winner over Juan
Carlos Ferrero.

Philipp Petzschner and Car-
los Moya play in the fourth
quarterfinal on Friday.

Montfils had two breaks to
one in the first set. He broke
twice more in the second after
dominating with powerful
forehand groundstrokes.

“My game was very solid
today and I am glad that I
stayed focused throughout the
match,” Monfils said.

Ferreso won just five points
on Melzer’s serve in the open-
ing set and was broken twice
in the second.

“I got the feeling today that
I just couldn’t do anything
wrong,” Melzer said. “I tried
to be the first to take the ini-
tiative in every rally and I was
hitting winners from all
angles.”

Del Potro, who has won
four ATP titles this season,
broke a toe nail at the U.S.

during his win over Martin
Fischer on Wednesday.

He was unable to play

Dushevina won the first set

Davydenko beat Safin in the
final in 2006 for his second title
in Moscow. He also won in 2004
and last season.

“T have nod illusions,” Safin’ ~

said. “Judging from his today’s
match, he (Davydenko) plays
and moves perfectly. I think I
have little chances, but why not
to try? I have nothing to loose.”

The defending champion won
four straight games in the first
set and five straight in the sec-
ond to close out the match in
56 minutes.

“The score speaks for itself,”
Davydenko said. “I played con-
fidently and controlled the
match.” :

Davydenko is looking for his
fourth title this season.

Safin took a 5-2 lead in the
decisive set and served the
match out with an ace.

“It was a strange match,”
Safin said. “I should have
played like I did in the first and
the third set and it could have
been finished in two sets. But
there was something wrong with
me in the second set.”

coach Gary Kubiak knows :
his team will “have its hands :

“You’re preparing for two A

Kubiak said. “You’ve got to

talent of Ronnie Brown, who :

ATLANTA FALCONS
¢ Cowboy Bob Orton has really
ruined a lot of material by actually
becoming a good quarterback. In the
last two weeks, Orton has thrown for

~~555 yards and fivé touchdowns with no |

interceptions. If you had told me
Qrton would finish the complete 16
game season with 5 touchdowns I
would have argued for hours that he

. would only get three. What I didn't
count on was Matt Forte developing

_into a legit starting.running back, what
I didn't count on:yas that Devin Hes-
ter would move to receiver and have
an immediate impact (two touchdowns
in the last two games), but most of all I
didn't count on Cowboy Bob's ability

‘to make the right reads, throw accu-

. rately, throw: with power, lead an
offence, stand upright, walk properly,
remember to snap the ball...

. Ok so we have to adjust the Falcons
theory a little. Maybe it’s not that
they’re bad at home and are good on
the road, maybe it’s that they just can't
sustain being good or terrible for con-
secutive weeks. Will this continue for
the rest of the season until they finish
8-8? This week will either validate the
theory or buck the trend. Incidentally,
every time Matt Ryan throws a touch-
down pass to a streaking Roddy White,
I want Dolphin fans to remember that
could have been Matt Ryan in Miami
throwing to Ted Ginn. ,

INDIANAPOLIS COLTS

e Sage Rosenfels may have
unleashed terror on the rest of the
AFC. Every game you thought, “Well
this has to be weak, the offence breaks
out right?” Thanks to Rosenfels, it
was. Peyton Manning will probably put
forth new rules to the competition

graded from the NFL to the NCAA. I
question Rod Marinelli's judgment, if
your team isn’t winning with Jon Kit-
na, there's no way you're winning with
Dan Orlovsky...none. That has to be
the worst quarterback name of all
time. Incidentally, the best quarterback
name of all time...Joe Theisman.

I watched it and I still\don't under-
stand how the Vikings won last week
with Adrian Peterson doing absolutely
nothing. The only logical answer is the
resurrection of Gus Frerotte. There's
no one better in the history of football
than taking a few years off until you
forget about him, only to come back
and be good again. He's like the
Daniel Day-Lewis of pro football. He
did "The Boxer in 1997" and went
AWOL until 2002 to do "Gangs of
New York" and took another five
years before he did "There Will be
Blood" in 2007. The ramblings chooses
to ignore "The Ballad of Jack and

e The last time the Raiders fired
their head coach four games into the

were also 1-3, and wound up finishing
the season 8-8. Although back then
they had Bo Jackson so we shouldn't
really expect a repeat of history.
McFadden is good, but he's a rookie,
whereas Bo Jackson was considered by
some small countries in Sub Saharan
Africa to be a demigod.

Along with the Chargers, the Saints
have to be the most surprising sub .500
team in the NFL. It depends on how
you approach the situation. Either
they’re one of those good teams that
will turn it around and learn to win
close games or they’ll be a mediocre
team that misses out on the playoffs
because they lost games early in the
season that they should have won.
Don’t blame Mr. Kardashian though,
they wasted a breakout performance

MIAMI DOLPHINS @
HOUSTON TEXANS

e So just when everybody gets used
to the Wildcat offence and thinks it’s
the only trick play in the Dolphins
playbook. Wham! That’s when they
break out the Fumblerooski. You
know what, I think they should just go
with the entire O’Shea playbook from
The Little Giants. Joey Porter can be
Icebox. Here’s the real issue, if the
Wildcat can keep working, Pennington
can continue to pick teams apart with
the play action, and the defence con-
tinues at this pace, then how far can
this team go. Wait a minute....how did I
get sucked into believing in them
again, this wasn’t supposed to happen
for another two years. I drank the
Kool-Aid...there’s no way this ends
well (Or is there? NO!!).

JACKSONVILLE JAGUARS @
DENVER BRONCOS

e The Broncos are reminiscent of
the 2006 Colts. A great offence led by
perhaps the league’s best quarterback,
a defence that can stop the pass but is
absolutely putrid against the run. As
intimidating and explosive the Broncos
offence is, their rush defence is equally
as sheepish and horrendous. Peyton
Manning was able to handle the sus-
tained pressure week in and.week out

‘and the defense played well enough in

two playoff games to propel them to a
Superbowl berth. I don’t know if the
Broncos defence has two good games
in them.

After being held to just 38 yards
rushing last week, the Jaguars running
game will be looking to break out in a
major way against a 25th ranked
defence.

DALLAS COWBOYS @

ARIZONA CARDINALS
e I thought the Cardinals offence

would take a hit without Anquan

Boldin, but as Joey Tribiani would say,

“T was wwwaaayyy off.” The Cards
responded with 41 points and it’s .
become apparent to me that there is no
way to stop a quarterback who wears
two, gloves.

My confidence in the Cowboys con-
tinues to fade because of the holes in
the defence. They’ll get through the
regular season fine and they’ll look
good against the Browns, Bengals,
Packers offences but :how will this
defence holdup against a team when
they’re forced to stop the run and need
to force a turnover. I’m not sold they
can do that. What I am sold on is that
Pac Man Jones will do something stu-

_ pid before the year ends. ®

games in a row including at home to
the Falcons. Bret Farve must be rolling
over in his grave watching what is hap-
pening to Green Bay. The good news
is they drew Seattle on the schedule
this week. There’s nothing better for
confidence, moral and to rebound from
a three game losing streak than to play -
a 1-3 team that has suddenly become |
completely one dimensional. Aaron «
Rodgers passed the fitness test last
week but this team still needs to do.a =
much better job stopping the run hav-~
ing given up at least 175 yards rushing
for three consecutive weeks.

Wasn’t it just two years ago that

THE St. Andrew’s Hurri-
canes are sending a clear mes-
sage that they are not taking
any team for granted in their
bid to win the Bahamas Asso-
ciation of Independent Sec-
ondary Schools’ junor boys
softball tigle that slipped away
from them last year.

The runners-up handed the
defending champions St.
Augustine’s College Big Red
Machines their only loss during
the season opener. Yesterday,
the Hurricanes blew past the
Charles W. Saunders Cougars
to remain undefeated.



Exploding for nine runs on
just three hits as they batted
around the clock in the top of
the fifth inning, St. Andrew’s
pulled off a huge 16-7 win at
Charles W. Saunders to push
their record to 6-0, dropping
the Cougars to 2-2.

“T thought we could have
done a little better. We made a
few errors, but I think we
played okay,” said St.
Andrew’s Justin Higgs, who
secured the win on the mound
and helped his cause on the

.

offensive attack.

On the mound, Higgs had a
pretty good pitching perfor-
mance, throwing a six-hitter
with six strike outs, including

retiring the side in the second. .

And on the offensive end,
Higgs went 2-for-4 with a pair
of runs batted in. His two RBIs
came in the decisive fifth
inning on a two-out single.

It was Higgs’ second at-bat
in the inning as he had a walk
as the second batter. On both
trips, he scored a run.

r



Shortstop Ashland Butler”
had four walks and he crossed .

the plate scoring every time,
while first baseman Leighton
Gibson had a triple, a walk and
was hit by a pitch twice as he
scored two runs.

Catcher Morgan Souder had
a walk and a single, scoring
twice and left fielder Alex

Euteneur singled and scored a

run. Just about every other

batter made a contribution in ~

the win.

About their winning streak,
Higgs said they are proving
that they are “the best team in
the league” and they intend to

“go all the way.’

executive telling Tribune Busi-

ness yesterday that upgrades

tion in coverage quality and.

Marlon Johnson, BTC’s vice-

$42 million that the state-owned

That, he said, should ensure

els when they switch to GSM
cellular service, especially as
TDMA was seen as being the
better, more reliable network.

“One of the things that we’re
doing in the upgrade is over-
laying the current GSM net-
work with a network at the A50
frequency,” Mr Johnson
explained.

“The ASO frequency is where
the TDMA network sits now,
and that will allow the company
to have greater coverage and
greater capacity [for GSM].
When Bahamians go to other
jurisdictions, the GSM network
rests at A5O, so we’re confident
that it will have the capacity and
coverage TDMA customers are
used to.”

Freeport economy now
just like after Frances’

fl Business owner says car sales fallen ‘to nothing’, with gas
sales down by two-thirds, forcing eight to 10 staff lay-offs

@ By NEIL HARTNELL
Tribune Business Editor

Freeport’s economy has fallen into the same
condition today that it was post-Hurricane
Frances in 2004, one businessman told Tribune
Business yesterday, having been forced to let
eight to 10 staff go after sales “dropped to
nothing”.

Larry Albury, general manager of Freeport
Jet Wash and Auto Mart, said: “Car sales have
dropped to nothing. Things are like they were
after Frances.

“We had no sales for six months after
Frances, and that’s what we’re seeing again.
We’ve had the odd one sale here, one sale
there, but before Frances we were selling 35
cars per month.”

Mr Albury added that gasoline sales had
dropped by two--thirds in volume as a result of
the depressed Freeport economy, its state hav-
ing been further exacerbated by the US eco-

nomic malaise, global liquidity/credit crunch
fallout and latest Wall Street meltdown.

The Freeport Jet Wash and Auto Mart boss
said that instead of asking for $20 or $40 to
be pumped into their vehicle’s tanks, drivers
were now only requesting one or two gallon fill-
ups to preserve disposable income and alleviate
the impact of soaring global oil prices.

“I’ve had to let a manager go, and eight to 10
staff members go,” Mr Albury told Tribune
Business, adding that “more and more people
are getting laid-off” as Grand Bahama’s econ-
omy slowed.

While companies such as the Freeport Con-
tainer Port, Grand Bahama Shipyard, former
BORCO oil refinery (Now Vopak Terminal
Bahamas) and Bradford Marine were still
seemingly doing well, Mr Albury said this had
not been enough to pick up the slack caused by

Insurance can be the ‘third and
strongest pillar’ for the Bahamas

@ By NEIL HARTNELL
Tribune Business Editor

Insurance “can be the third
and strongest pillar” of the
Bahamian economy if this
nation was to re-establish itself
as a captive insurance domicile,
a leading executive said yester-
day, as the sector was relatively
immune to the current “wild
fluctuations” in the global econ-

“omy.

Guilden Gilbert, a partner in
Chandler Gilbert Insurance
Associates and former Bahamas
Insurance Brokers and Agents
(BIBA) president, said that
even in the toughest economic
times major companies and
individuals still needed to pur-
chase insurance.

This, he explained, would
ensure the sector would not be
impacted as heavily as tourism
and the Bahamas’ traditional

offshore banking model by

events such as the current glob-
al credit/liquidity crunch and
US economic downturn.

“During an economic down-
turn, companies tend to buy
more insurance, especially pro-
fessional liability and directors’
indemnity insurance, because
in a market downturn that’s typ-
ically when you get more share-
holder lawsuits,” Mr Gilbert
explained, adding that “the
Bahamas would be well-served”
if it re-established itself as a
niche captive and internation-
al insurance jurisdiction.

To do so, Mr Gilbert said the
Bahamas would have to send

Power firm subsidies set
a ‘dangerous precedent’



@ By NEIL HARTNELL
Tribune Business Editor

The Government’s decision to
effectively subsidise the fuel bills
for Grand Bahama Power Com-
pany and the Bahamas Electrici-
ty Corporation (BEC) “sets a
dangerous precedent”, several
businessmen have warned, as it
potentially opens the floodgates
for other industries and private
individuals to demand similar
treatment.

Rick Lowe, a senior figure with
the Nassau Institute think-tank
and operations manager for Nas-
sau Motor Company, questioned
whether the Government would
need to increase taxes or take
away from much-needed spend-
ing in other areas to finance the
power company subsidies.

“It’s unfortunate that the Gov-

al insurance industry that it was
open for business, and strength-
en its regulatory infrastructure.

“The first thing to do is get
interest in the market,” Mr
Gilbert told Tribune Business.
“To do that, you could issue a
statement from the Minister of
Finance in an international
insurance publication, such as
Business Insurance, one of the
most read insurance publica-
tions, that the Bahamas wants
to re-establish itself as a cap-
tive domicile. There would at
least be some interest, some
feelers would be put out and
that in itself would trigger some
inquiries.

“Then, questions will arise;
who is the regulator? What
experience do they have? The
Bahamas may have to look at

for a better life

who fulfills the role of regulator,
but ultimately everyone bene-
fits.”

If the Bahamas wanted to
establish itself as a serious inter-
national insurance player, Mr
Gilbert said it would need a
well-known figure in the market
who was respected by all par-
ticipants to regulate the captive
business. Initially, that person
was likely to come from outside
the Bahamas.

“Maybe we need one Regis-
trar to handle the domestic side
and one that handles the inter-
national side,” Mr Gilbert
added.

The Supreme Court has
approved an application by the

liquidator of a Bahamas-based

broker/dealer, whose principal
is currently serving a US jail
sentence for money laundering,
to pay his costs using - in part -
client assets that the firm held in
trust, the judge finding it would
be “inequitable and completely
unrealistic” for him to be left
“empty-handed”. ‘

Senior Justice John Lyons, in
an October 6, 2008, written
judgment on the application by
BDO Mann Judd accountant,
Clifford Culmer, relating to
costs incurred in the liquidation
of Martin Tremblay’s firm,
Dominion Investments (Nas-
sau), said it would not be fair
to leave liquidators out-of-pock-
et if company assets proved
insufficient to cover their costs.

The verdict sets something of
a legal precedent, as it estab-
lishes that in cases were client
assets are held on trust and
clearly segregated, they can be
used to help fund a liquidator’s
costs if the company’s own
assets are insufficient... The
Companies Act and winding-

_up provisions are slient on the

issue.

The judgment recorded that
some 95.5 per cent of Dominion
Investments (Nassau) assets,
which were spread between the
Bahamas, the US and Canada,
were assets that the company
held on trust for its clients, but
did not own itself.

Of the Bahamas assets, some
85.4 per cent or $3.879 million
were held on trust, with
$662,673 or 14.6 per cent
belonging to Dominion.

When it came to the Canadi-

" an assets, some 99.99 per cent or

enior Justice John Lyons

$10.154 million were client

assets held on trust on their.

behalf, and .01 per cent or $849
belonging to Dominion.

As a result, the assets belong-
ing to Dominion were clearly
nowhere near enough to cover
Mr Culmer’s liquidation costs,
and he proposed that this be
funded in proportion to the per-
centage of total assets account-
ed for by the clients and Mr
Tremblay’s firm respectively.
He then sought Supreme Court
permission for this.

outlined, was probably what
will saves the tourism industry
during these economic times.

However, Mr Sands stressed
that there was a need for mar-
ket diversification. ‘““We have
to find ways to increase our
presence in those other mar-
kets where our competitors
have been able to see some
growth in those areas.”

He said the Ministry also
has to address the issue of
charter opportunities for some
regions that show a propensi-
ty to travel.

Mr Sands said that if
tourism needed to grow,
hotels with a gaming compo-
nent need to be allowed to
come out of the ‘dark ages’.

“We need to be allowed to

-bring in new games as request-

ed by the market, and revamp
procedures. We cannot be

expected to be competitive if
these regulations remain,” Mr
Sands said. '

He said it was time for the
Goveinment to seriously con-
sider opening up the gambling
restrictions for permanent res-
idents and persons with work
permits, as well as moneyed
Bahamians who can prove a
certain income level.

While Mr Sands said some
may consider that controver-
sial, he added that tough times
require tough measures.

He said that if the industry
was to truly grow, a way has to
be found to address local
labour within the sector so
that it becomes productive,
cost effective and efficient.

Additionally Mr Sands said
the Government and private
sector must find.a way-to-deal
with energy costs, which are
a cash drain and frustrate cap-
ital investment.

He said that what keeps
persons coming back to a des-
tination is the injection of
flavour, which comes from
new properties and facilities
being built.

Noting the Ministry’s desire
to ensure that guests venture
off property, rather than
spend all their time at a resort,
Mr Sands said Baha Mar
would promote tours and
activities, such as the proposed
James Bond Tour and the
Cemetery tour.

However, he said that if
hoteliers are to promote those
events, there must be an
acceptable level of service.

Mr Sands said the minister’s
policies represent a “holistic”
approach to tourism that is
greatly needed, and very real-
istic and reflective of what is

Speaking for the Sandals
Royal Bahamian resort, Bob
Keesler, general manager, said
they would welcome any
activity that will ultimately
create more awareness and
increase the number of visi-
tors.

“In addition to this nation's
natural charm and beauty, we
strongly believe that’ its close
proximity to the US is a very
important factor,” Mr Keesler
said.

“Coupled with our Sandals
Luxury-Included offering, this
presents us as a great vacation
option for those visitors who
want to get away but are
maybe considering something
closer to home. Our forecast-
ed arrivals for the remainder
of the year reflect this, and we ~
are very positive for the
future,.” ,

Sandals has been focusing
on having a strong sales and
marketing presence through-
out Europe, including Russia,
with tourists encouraged to
consider the Bahamas as a
destination.

“As our name suggests, San-
dals Royal Bahamian is a very
proud advocate of this nation
and its people, and so we
strive to give our guests a taste
of Bahamian culture through
our entertainment and cuisine
to ensure their experience of

memories,” Mr Keesler said.

Proximity still top tourist advantage

@ By CARA BRENNEN-
BETHEL
Tribune Business
‘Reporter

The Bahamas’ close prox-
imity to the US remains its
greatest asset and must still
be exploited to drive the
tourism industry before look-
ing further afield to target
long-haul destinations, the
minister of tourism said.

Although challenging eco-
nomic times have mandated
that his Ministry target wider
markets such as China, Russia
and India, as well as the west-
ern US and Canada, Vincent
Vanderpool Wallace said they
were still aggressively target-
ing their number one client
market- the Eastern US.

Mr Vanderpool-Wallace
said the Ministry had found
that in times when the US
economy was in trouble, the
Bahamas benefits because
persons who wish to travel can
only afford to go to destina-
tions that are very close, mak-

Freeport economy now
‘just like after Frances’

the continued Royal Oasis closure and hotel sector downturn.
He added that many Freeport hotel workers were working as
little as one day per week, with occupancy at the Sheraton and
Westin Our Lucaya as low as 20 per cent or worse.
Mr Albury was backed up by Christopher Lowe, the former
Grand Bahama Chamber of Commerce president, who
described the Freeport and Grand Bahama economy as “dis-

mal”.

“T am very concerned about it, to put it mildly,” Mr Lowe said.
“But unfortunately it doesn’t appear that the Government is
very capable of doing anything about it.

“Straightening out the Port Authority situation would be
helpful, but it’s a bit late. It will have a long-term effect, but for
the short-term it’s not going to get better.

“Some hands-off from government would help, but other
than that, what can I say? It sure needs a new approach. The
country needs a new approach to its very existence.”

Mr Lowe, who is operations manager at Kelly’s (Freeport),
said his: company was enduring “very flat sales”

ing this country an ideal
choice.

Alternatively, he said that
when the US economy is
doing well, persons can and
do choose to go further afield,
but added that at the same
time, when times are more
prosperous, the Bahamas still
benefits because persons who
previously were unable to
travel may now have the dis-
posable income to make trips,
again choosing destinations
closer to home.

As part of its revitalistation
plans and to drive home its
major proximity Mr Vander-
pool-Wallace said the Ministry
is about to launch a new cam-

announced that the Ministry
had decided to return to the
“It’s better in the Bahamas”
slogan, which is to feature
prominently on
www.bahamas.com.

“ This comes on the heels
of what some critics said was
a less than stellar
‘bahamavention’ campaign
and ‘It’s hip to hop to the
Bahamas’.

Mr Vanderpool-Wallace
said the Ministry will be refo-
cusing its budget to ensure
that its dollars are spent as
effectively as possible.

While he said that some ini-
tiatives have had to be
scrapped, the overall hope is

to have a more efficient Min-
istry. This will include a
remarketing of the ‘Islands of
the Bahamas’ as a region with
multiple destinations, rather
than lumping them all togeth-
er.

This will enable them to
focus on the unique charac-
teristics of each island.

Additionally, the Ministry
proposes that the immigration
cards be put on line for visitors
to fill out at their leisure PTE
to their trip.

Mr Vanderpool- -Wallace
said this will reduce the pro-
cessing time at the airport as
well as the Government’s
paper expense.

Lyons noted that liquidation

costs were usually paid out of

the company’s assets according
to Section 241 of the Compa-
nies Act, with investors in a
financial services company sim-
ply treated as creditors if the
firm held all the assets. They
then shared the liquidation costs
equally.

However, Mr Culmer had
concluded that most of Domin-
ion’s assets did not belong to
the company but were held on
trust for clients, who beneficiall
owned them. As a result, the
liquidator needed court
approval to apply them towards
his payment costs.

While no formal trust deed
existed between Dominion and
its clients, there was nothing in
the company’s records to indi-
cate that clients had conferred
beneficial ownership on the
company. And the way it oper-
ated, with clients as the benefi-
cial owners of accounts and
companies opened for them,
showed “Dominion clearly
intended to hold the funds and
securities in trust”.

“From the material before
me, there is clear differentia-
tion between any of its assets
and the assets of its specific
investors, both as between
Dominion and its investor and
each investor to each other,”
Justice Lyons wrote.

Nor was Dominion a bank,
meaning that the legal princi-
ples applying to banks that held

customer money and property
did not apply in this matter.

With Mr Culmer’s contention
that Dominion held client assets
in trust now established, Justice
Lyons said he had been able to
establish each investor’s bene-
ficial entitlement.

If investor assets had been
co-mingled, a different outcome
may have followed, but the
judge said the only question to
be answered was, in these cir-
cumstances, where the liquida-
tor could turn for payment of
his costs if the company’s assets
were insufficient to cover them.

Justice Lyons said there was
no provision in the Companies
Act.or winding-up rules for pay-
ing liquidator costs other than
out of firm assets, and these
provisions did not déal. with
property held on trust.

“No one expects a man to
labour for nothing or next to
nothing,” Justice Lyons wrote.
“Where the assets available to
pay the liquidator are not com-
pany assets but trust assets then,
on a strict legal interpretation of
the Companies Act, the liq-
uidator would not be paid. This
is hardly equitable.......

Given that Dominion’s liqui-
dation was “not without its con-
troversy and complications”,
and that Mr Culmer had to suc-
cessfully overcome a Canadian
freeze order on some 69.1 per
cent of its assets, Justice Lyons
said: “This was not a ‘garden
variety liquidation’. In my judg-
ment, the majority of the liq-
uidator’s costs have been
incurred in connection with his

successful efforts in gathering
and identifying all the assets of
Dominion, the majority of
which are trust assets.”

With financial services
providers increasingly holding
assets on trust for clients, and
“an increase in recent years in
the number” of such companies
going into liquidation where
their own assets are insufficient
to cover costs, Justice Lyons
said: “Liquidators seldom
realise what they are getting
into until they are actually
involved in the winding-up
operation.

“It is only then that the liq-
uidator, having carried out con-
siderable investigative work, is
able then to determine what the
company assets are and what
the trust assets are.

“It would be both inequitable
and completely unrealistic if
courts were to appoint liquida-
tors, asking them to carry out
their task ‘blind’ as it were and
then, having done so, and
incurred considerable costs,
leave the liquidator empty
handed because the assets of

the company were insufficient.”

Justice Lyons said that if
courts did so, no liquidators

would wish to handle the com-

plex liquidations that came
before them, while investors
could “not fairly expect a liq-
uidator who has done a tremen-
dous amount of work to identi-
fy; isolate and retrieve their
assets to walk away empty
handed and not be paid for his
endeavours”.

General liquidation costs
were $911,574; the Bahamas
costs were $360,414; and the
Canadian costs $603,910.
Another $59,000 in costs was
also incurred.

Stocks plunge again
following late sell-oft

@ By TIM PARADIS
AP Business Writer
NEW YORK

Stocks plunged Thursday,
sending the Dow Jones industrial
average down 679 points — more
than 7 percent — to its lowest
level in five years. Stocks took a
nosedive after a major credit-rat-
ing agency said it might cut its
rating on General Motors and
Ford, further rattling investors
already fretting over the impact of
tight credit on the economy.

The Standard & Poor's 500
index also fell more than 7 per-
cent.

The declines came on the one-
year anniversary of the closing
highs of the Dow and the S&P.
The Dow has lost 5,585 points,
or 39.4 percent, since closing at
14,164.53 on Oct. 9, 2007. It's the
worst run for the Dow since the
nearly two-year bear market that
ended in December 1974 when
the Dow lost 45 percent. The
S&P 500, meanwhile, is off 655
points, or 41.9 percent, since
recording its high of 1,565.15.

U.S. stock market paper losses
totaled $872 billion Thursday and
the value of shares over all has
tumbled a stunning $8.33 trillion
since last year's high. That's based
on figures measured by the Dow
Jones Wilshire 5000 Composite
Index, which tracks 5,000 U.S.-
based companies' stocks and rep-
resents almost all stocks traded
in America. Thursday's sell-off
came as Standard & Poor's Rat-
ings Services put General Motors
Corp. and its finance affiliate
GMAC LLC under review to see
if its rating should be cut. The
action means there is a 50 per-
cent chance that S&P will lower
GM's and GMAC's ratings in the
next three months. GM has been
struggling with weak car sales ip
North America.

S&P also put Ford Motor Co.
on credit watch negative. The rat-
ings agency said that GM and
Ford have adequate liquidity
now, but that could change in
2009.

GM, one of the 30 stocks that
make up the Dow industrials, fell
$2.15, or 31 percent, to $4.76,
while Ford fell 58 cents, or 22 per-
cent, to $2.08.

"The story is getting to be like
that movie 'Groundhog Day,*"

1805

said Arthur Hogan, chief market
analyst at Jefferies & Co. He
pointed to the still-frozen credit
markets, and Libor, the bank-to-
bank lending rate that remains
stubbornly high despite interest
rate cuts this week by the Feder-
al Reserve and other major cen-
tral banks.

"Until that starts coming down,
you'll be hard-pressed to find any-
one getting excited about stocks,"
Hogan said. "Everything we're
seeing is historic. The problem is
historic, the solutions are historic,
and unfortunately, the sell-off is
historic. It's not the kind of his-
tory you want to be making."

The Dow ended the day at its

lows, finishing down 678.91, or
7.3 percent, at 8,579.19. The blue
chips hadn't closed below the
9,000 level since the June 30,
2003.The Dow's tumble in the last
seven sessions is its steepest ever
in terms of points and the worst
percentage decline since a down-
turn ending Oct. 26, 1987, when
the Dow lost 23.8 percent. That
sell-off included Black Monday,
the Oct. 19, 1987 market crash
that saw the Dow fall nearly 23
percent in a single day.
- Broader stock indicators also
tumbled Thursday. The S&P 500
fell 75.02, or 7.6 percent, to
909.92, while the Nasdaq com-
posite index fell 95.21, or 5.5 pgr-
cent, 'to 1,645.12.

The Russell 2000 index of
smaller companies fell 47.37, or
8.7 percent, to 499.20.

A wave of fear about the econ-
omy sent stocks lower in the final
two hours of trading after a
volatile morning in which major
indicators like the Dow and the
S&P 500 index bobbed up and
down. The Nasdaq, with a bevy of
tech stocks, spent much of the
session higher but eventually
declined as the sell-off intensi-
fied. Still, its losses were less
severe because of the relatively
modest drops in names like Intel
Corp. and Microsoft Corp.

On the New York Stock
Exchange, declining issues came
to nearly 3,000, while fewer than
250 advanced.

The sluggishness in the credit
markets that triggered much of
the heavy selling in markets
around the world since mid-Sep-
tember appeared little changed
Thursday following days of efforts
by the Federal Reserve and other

28 PICTET

central banks to resuscitate lend-
ing.

Libor, the bank lending bench-
mark, for three-month dollar
loans rose to 4.75 percent from
4.52 percent on Wednesday. That
signals that banks remain hesi-
tant to make loans for fear they
won't be paid back.

The Fed and other leading cen-
tral banks this week lowered key
interest rates to help unclog the
credit markets and promote lend-
ing to help the global economy.
While a rate cut can take up toa
year to work its way through the
economy, the move was aimed as
a boost to investor sentiment.

"We're stuck in a morass and I
think it's going to take quite some
time to come out of it," said
Stephen Carl, principal and head
of equity trading at The Williams
Capital Group.

Demand remained high for
short-term Treasurys, a refuge for

‘investors willing to trade modest

returns to protect their money.
The yield on the three-month
Treasury bill, which moves oppo-
site its price, fell to 0.51 percent
from 0.63 percent late Wednes-
day. Longer-term debt prices fell,
with the yield on the 10-year note
rising to 3.79 percent from 3.65
percent late Wednesday.

Investors across markets were
mulling a plan being considered
by the Bush administration to
invest in hobbled U.S. banks as a
way to stabilize the financial sec-
tor. The $700 billion rescue pack-
age signed into law last week
allows the Treasury Department
to inject fresh capital into finan-
cial institutions and obtain own-
ership shares in return.

Britain rolled out a similar
plan, though no U.K. bank has
received any investments. In Ice-
land, the government now has
control of the country's three
major banks as it struggles to con-
tain the troubles there.

Wall Street is also looking for
any effects of short selling now
that a three-week ban imposed
by regulators has expired. Short
selling is a technique in which
investors borrow shares in a com-
pany from a broker and sell them,
hoping to buy them back later at
a lower price. Essentially, it's a
bet that a stock's price will fall.
Short sellers can lose money if
they have to repurchase the stock
after it has risen.

tives that insured particular
risks for the Fortune 1000 com-
panies, as Bermuda had done,
Mr Gilbert suggested that the
Bahamas go after business from
companies just below that, who
generated $100-$200 million in
revenues per year.

Those companies were look-
ing for “alternative ways to con-
tain premium costs”, and Mr
Gilbert said: “That would be an
ideal market for the Bahamas,
as the opportunities there are
greater because they can cap-
ture a much greater percentage
of the market than just by focus-
ing on Fortune 1000 compa-
nies.”

Mr Gilbert described
Freeport as an “ideal” location
for a Bahamian captive and
international insurance indus-
try, given its proximity to the

US, existing infrastructure and
ability to accommodate a much
larger population than it did
currently.

Turning to the potential eco-
nomic benefits a captive insur-
ance industry could bring to the
Bahamas, Mr Gilbert said it
would support the accounting,
hotel, legal, office space and
rental markets directly - and just

about any duty in this
nation.

“The trickle down effect is
enormous,” Mr Gilbert told Tri-
bune Business.

“In Carolina, they created
captive legislation six to seven
years ago, and in the first two to
three years some extra $300 mil-
lion in revenue was injected into
the local economy.”

THE TRIBUNE

FRIDAY, OCTOBER 10, 2008, PAGE 7B



Power firm subsidies set a ‘dangerous precedent’.

FROM page 1B

ernment has chosen to do that,”
Mr Lowe told Tribune Business.
“For them to start subsidising one
particular private entity, it sets a
dangerous precedent.

“We're all suffering. What
industry is next?

“Our industry is suffering.
We're all vital assets in one way
or another. Who’s the great
decider?

“You go to the Government

with your hand out and they say :

you're not worthy.

“But how do they decide
whose worthy [of receiving a sub-
sidy] and who isn’t? If a power
plant or private company is wor-
thy, then everyone else is.”

Mr Lowe added that the Gov-
ernment subsidies would “distort
the market mechanism, so to
speak”, and raised the prospect
that it would have to re-allocate
money and taxes from elsewhere
to cover the power company
funding.

“The Government does not
have anything to give unless it
takes it from someone else,” he
added.

He was supported by his name-

_ sake Christopher Lowe, the for-

mer Grand Bahama Chamber of
Commerce president, who said
that while the Government sub-
sidising BEC could arguably be
justified because it 100 per cent
owned the Corporation, it had

extended this to supporting a pri-
vate company. “It’s one thing to
subsidise it through BEC, but
now it’s subsidising it through
Grand Bahama Power Compa-

ny, which is a private company,”

Chris Lowe added.

He said the change of policy in |

New Providence, from one where
BEC customers were cut off for
failing to pay their bills in full,
would merely encourage con-
sumers to make only partial pay-
ments, thus running up significant
arrears and BEC’s accounts
receivables.
Both Messrs Lowe run the risk
of being criticised for insensitivi-
ty towards the plight of ordinary,
poor Bahamians who have been
unable to meet their electricity
bills as a result of soaririg oil costs
that have been passed on to con-
sumers by the power companies
in the form of the fuel surcharge.
Government subsidies now

‘seem to be increasingly the, norm

as a result of the global liquidi-

‘ty/credit crunch in the global

financial system, with government
in the US, UK, Iceland and
Europe nationalising and provid-
ing multi-billion dollar subsidies
to financial institutions to prevent

their collapse and a systemic mielt--

down.

Yet in the Bahaniian context,
the Government is effectively
part-paying the fuel bill for Grand
Bahama Power Company, an

entity that is 80 per cént owned .

by two leading power conglom-

erates - the Japanese company,
Marubeni, which holds 55 per
cent, and the Canadian entity,
Emera, which owns the balance.
The company also recently
paid a dividend to its sharehold-
ers, indicating its financial posi-
tion is sound. , '
With Bahamians increasingly
being hit. by soaring energy and
food costs, combined with rising
job losses, reduced work hours
and a reduction in incomes result-
ing from the global economic
downturn, the Government prob-
ably felt it had no choice but to do
something to alleviate the impact
- and ensure it did not lose votes.
Prime Minister Hubert Ingra-
ham said BEC had disconnected
some 5,000 residential customers
for non-payment of bills, with the
“vast majority” of accounts in
arrears being behind by $1,000 Or
less. ‘
As a result, the Government
moved to cap BEC’s fuel sur-

charge at $0.15 per kilowatt hour
for residential customers whose
monthly consumption is less than
800 kilowatts per hour.

This will last from October 1,
2008, to December 31, 2008, and
the same will be done for Grand
Bahama Power Company cus-
tomers who also use 800 kilowatts
per month or less.

This has entailed a government
subsidy totalling $5.5 million -
some $4 million to BEC, which
it has to repay over two years,
and $1.5 million to Grand

Bahama Power Company.

The Government has directed

BEC to restore power to all cus- ©
tomers who had their electricity

disconnected for failing to pay
their bills in full, while the Cor-
poration has been ordered to
reverse its requirement that all
arrears are paid before recon-
nection.

Previously, only 50 per cent of
arrears had to be paid.

Mr Johnson said BTC had

invested $42 million in its GSM
upgrade and TDMA conver-
sion, that being split into a $22
million investment in the Fam-
ily Islands, with the $20 million
balance going on New Provi-
dence, Grand Bahama and
Abaco.
' “This is to ensure we have
the coverage and capacity to
not only take those customers
over to TDMA, but improve
the quality of service through-
out the Bahamas,” Mr Johnson
said. “TDMA customers will
get that improved footprint.and
capacity when they make that
transition.”

Yet the fact that BTC is
spending more on the GSM
upgrade in the Family Islands,
as opposed to the more densely

populated islands, shows one
dilemma its privatisation part-
ner. will have to address - the
difficulty in getting a return on
capital investment in the sparse-
ly populated southern islands.

Mr Johnson said BTC initial-
ly had about 100,000 TDMA
and 200,000 GSM customers
when the transition began, but
“as of yesterday” only 48,000
TDMA customers remained
active.

Of these, there were some
34,000 pre-paid and 14,000 post-
paid TDMA users, but Mr
Johnson said the number for
those still to make the GSM
switch was like to be smaller
than those figures because a
number of people were “dual
users”- using both TDMA and
GSM phones.

“As of now, we are on tar-
get. It’s been quite as task and
we're going at a fair clip,” Mr

Johnson said of the GSM con-
version. “We’re getting ready
to do our first TDMA turn-off
on Exuma and Long Island on
October 14, and hopefully by
the end of this month we’ll have
turned down all sites.”

BTC is phasing out TDMA
pre-paid customer numbers
beginning with the prefixes ‘395’
and 423’ this week, with the
‘552’ and ‘558’ prefixes turned
off at the end of next week.

Mr Johnson said that BTC
would have invested close to $1
million in marketing dollars into
the GSM conversion “when all
is said and done”, as it was giv-
ing away SIM cards - which nor-
mally-cost $15 per customer -
for free. Staff overtime pay-
ments also entered the equa-
tion, with BTC keeping its wire-
less and Cyber World outlets
open until 8pm, as did public
education and awareness cam-

paigns. The BTC executive said
the decision to discontinue the
TDMA network was effectively
made for the company, as the
system’s technology was no
longer being manufactured.

“It is quickly becoming obso-
lete,” Mr Johnson said.

“We decided to base the plat-
form for the time being on
GSM, which is widely utilised
all over the world, with well
over two billion customers.

Wherever you travel, you’re .

bound to find a GSM network.
Technology has moved on and
we have to make sure our cus-
tomers are in line with global
best practices.”

Mr Johnson said his only con-
cern was that TDMA clients
might wait until the last minute
to switch over, and as a result
the conversion might be
delayed and they could lose
phone service.

Tourism minister
is lead speaker at
Business Outlook

Vincent Vanderpool-Wal-
lace, the minister of tourism,
will be the lead speaker at the
third annual Exuma Business
Outlook conference on Thurs-
day, October 23.

The event will be held at the
Four Seasons Hotel under the
theme The Reality, The Vision,
The New Directions.

Reginald Smith, the
Bahamas Chamber of Com-
merce’s president, said: “Exu-
ma is currently in the dol-

‘drums.

“The highlights are devel-
opment projects that are cur-
rently in progress at Roker’s
Point and Crab Cay.

“However, the Four Sea-
sons Resort has been in
receivership for more than a
year and we have not made
headway with a buyer.
Tourism has slowed signifi-
cantly, real estate sales are
down and the cost of living
continues to escalate.

“During rough times like
these we need to dig down
deep and find new paths to
success. We need to develop a
vision and plan that will revi-
talise Exuma so it will become
a leading destination.”

Conference organiser Joan
Albury, president of The
Counsellors, said Exuma has
not been living up to its full
economic potential.

“Despite the incredible
beauty of the island and its
surrounding waters, and the
fruition of anchor projects
such as the Four Seasons, the
people of Exuma have yet to
develop and reap the full ben-
efits of linkages with the
tourism sector, particularly
through entrepreneurship,”
she said. And: now that the

“Exuma is currently in the
doldrums. The highlights are

currently in progress at
Roker’s Point and Crab Cay.”



Bahamas has begun to feel the
impact of the global financial
crisis, it is especially impor-
tant that we discuss and
understand Exuma’s econom-
ic reality and that Exumians
develop a vision for the island.
This may require doing some
things we’ve never done

Man arrested after
high-speed chase

Another suspect
is still being
sought by police

§ By CHESTER ROBARDS
Tribune Staff Reporter

ONLOOKERS were shocked
to see a high-speed car chase
unfold yesterday near the Nation-
al Insurance Building.

The police were chasing a
white Nissan Maxima in the
Grove around 2.30pm. The inci-
dent resulted in the arrest of one
man. Another is still being sought.

According to Assistant Police
Commissioner Hulan Hanna, offi-
cers responded to what they ini-
tially thought was a stabbing,
howeve., they later determined
it might have been a scuffle.

Individuals residing:in the area
of the chase, contrary to police

reports, say they heard gunshots ©

around the time the men would
have been fleeing the police.

And witnesses on Acklins
Street, where'the suspects ditched
the vehicle, noticed what they
thought might have been a bullet
hole in the lower left of the dri-
ver's door of the Maxima.

Government extends payment plan
deadline for electricity consumers

RESIDENTIAL electricity
consumers of the Bahamas Elec-
tricity Corporation and the Grand
Bahama Power Company whose
service has been reconnected
under the Government’s social
assistance initiative now have
until October 31 to set up pay-
ment plans to settle their account
arrears, the Government
announced Thursday.

BEC customers previously had

' until Friday, October 10 and

GBPC customers until Friday,
October 17 to establish payment
plans or face re-disconnection of
their supply.

In order to accommodate per-
sons who may not be able to meet
the previously set deadlines, the
Government has made arrange-
ments to extend the payment plan
deadline for these customers.

Last month Government
directed BEC to immediately

reconnect the service of persons |

whose supply had been discon-
nected for failure to settle their
accounts in full.

Government was advised that

over 5,000 residential consumers
had their supply of electricity dis-
connected, the vast majority of
those with outstanding bills of less
than $1,000.

As of Thursday, 4,231 BEC
customers had their electricity
restored under that directive.

Reconnection figures per

OUT Island hoteliers yester-

However, some rejected the

Private companies and drivers

the vehicle is, there is an auto-

detention, rape, armed robbery

@ By NATARIO McKENZIE



TWO men appeared in a Magistrate’s Court
yesterday on charges of forcible detention,
rape and armed robbery.

Renardo Bastian,18, of Knowles Drive off
the Tonique Williams Darling Highway; and
Ricardo Alton Knowles, 20, of Butter Street,
Nassau Village, hobbled to Court One in Bank
Lane yesterday afternoon, visibly in pain.

Knowles — who according to his attorney
Roger Gomez Jr, had been shot more than
five times — struggled to breathe, gasping loud-

ly for air until a breathing apparatus was

brought to him.

It is alleged that the two men, being con-
cerned together on Sunday September 21,
forcibly detained and raped a 19-year-old
woman.

\. The prosecution claims that the two men,

being concerned with others and armed with
a handgun, robbed the 19 year old of $5 cash
and a $500 Motorolla Ming cellular phone.
It is also alleged that on the same date,
time and place, the accused robbed Trevor
Heastie of a white 1998 Nissan Maxima valued

at $5,000 and $11 in cash. The prosecution
also claims that the two men were in posses-
sion of an imitation firearm — a Delta Gold
Cup Colt Auto 10 mm pistol, with intent to
commit an indictable offence.

It is also alleged that the two men were
found in possession of a .38 bullet, a 9 mm bul-
let and a .357 bullet.

Court dockets also claim that Bastian was
found in possession of 325 rounds of shotgun
ammunition. :

The men were not required to plead to
these charges. >. ¢

In addition, the, men were charged with
being found in possession of a quantity of
marijuana. Both men pleaded not guilty to
the charge.

It is further alleged that on Sunday, Sep-
tember 7, the two men assaulted Lyndero
Mejias with a handgun, and that on the same
day, they kidnapped Mejias.

Court dockets also claim that the two men
forcibly detained and raped a 17-year-old girl,
as well as robbing her of $200, a $75 LG cel-
lular phone and a $250 digital camera.

Neither man was required to plead to these

charges. The case was adjourned to October
16 and transferred to Court 11: in Nassau
Street. Chief Magistrate Roger Gomez
ordered that both men be remanded to Her
Majesty’s Prison.

Bastian’s attorney Willie Moss made an
application seeking to have his client taken
back to hospital before remand. Mr Moss also
requested that a medical report be submitted
to the court before the men are remanded to

‘prison.

Knowles’ attorney Roger Gomez Jr said
his client had been shot more than five times
and needed medication three times daily.

Mr Gomez also told the court that Knowles
had a ruptured lung and needed to use a
breathing apparatus every two to three min-
utes.

He said that Knowles’ bowels had been
ruptured and that two bullets had only been
removed from his body on Wednesday.

Chief Magistrate Gomez ordered that both
men receive medical attention before being
taken to Her Majesty’s Prison.

Thanks to the overwhelming success of Laughfest 2008, WizeGuy
Entertainment and B-Boy Entertainment are set to launch Comedy
Unplugged at Charlie’s Club, a weekly showcase of urban comedians
who have—until this point—only been seen on popular television
shows such as HBO’s Def Comedy Jam, Bad Boys of Comedy and the
ever popular BET’s Comic View.

Starting this Friday, and scheduled to run every Friday thereafter,
Comedy Unplugged will offer Bahamians a chance to see their favourite
performers live onstage. The party is billed as a three-pronged soiree;
6pm-8pm is Happy Hour, then an Open Mic competition will follow
which allows local, amateur and wannabe comedians a chance to show
their skills for weekly prizes. The professional comedians will then take
the stage, followed by an Afterparty with DJ CRX. ;

This week’s comedy headliner is Dexter Angry, who has been fea-
tured in Comedy Central’s Laugh Riot and NBC’s Last Comic Stand-
ing. Dexter was also a finalist for NBC’s Stand Up for Diversity, and
has worked with other famous comedians such as John Witherspoon
and Monique. Opening for Dexter will be Degario “Double D” Turn-
er, who has appeared numerous times on Comic View and opened for
many comedy stars, including Chris Tucker and. Rickey Smiley. _

Plans to put

forms online

TO save the Bahamian
government a significant
amount of money and ensure
that the collected visitor
information is 100 per cent
accurate, the Ministry of ©
Tourism plans to make
immigration forms available
online.

Speaking at a special pre-
sentation on revitalising
tourism at the British Colo-
nial Hilton on Wednesday,
Tourism and Aviation Minis-
ter Vincent Vanderpool-
Wallace said that visitors will
in future be able to fill out
the necessary immigration
forms and print them out
themselves before they trav-
el to the Bahamas.

This will reduce the num-
ber of forms the government
will have to produce every
year, thereby significantly
cutting costs.

Mr Vanderpool-Wallace

added that this new initiative>»«°

will also ensure that the

information collected will be. ;

more accurate as the visitors
fill out the details them-
selves, at their leisure and
expense.

“T just made it much sim-
pler for the customer, and
also the information in the
data base is much more
accurate.

“T don’t now have to go
and scan the stuff and some-
times have to go and correct
it, I know it’s correct because
the customer put it in them-
selves,” the minister said.

FREEPORT - The death |
of a young teen on Wednes- ;

A furious legal battle has broken out
over a $10 million life insurance policy
taken out by Sir Orville Turnquest, with
his trustee accusing Florida-based insur-
ance companies of “misrepresentation.”

In response, Sir Orville has been
accused by one of the defendants of ini-
tiating a “legally and factually baseless”
legal action in an effort to avoid repaying
a newly-matured $1.5 million loan to a
bank in the United States.

This counter-claim was made against
the former Governor General, Deputy
Prime Minister, Minister of Foreign
Affairs and Justice, Bahamas Bar Asso-
ciation president and magistrate by a
defendant in a civil complaint filed by the
trustee for Sir Orville’s trust, Bahamas-
domiciled Dulaw Management Ltd.

Dulaw Management is a successor-
trustee of the Florida-based Sir Orville
Turnquest Irrevocable Insurance Trust.

It filed the civil complaint in the. Cir-

cuit Court for Broward County on June |

23, which was then transferred to the

US District Court for the Southern Dis-

trict on July 23.
The defendants listed are PHL Vari-
able Insurance Company, LaSalle Bank

i National Association, Coventry Capital

I LLC and Boundless Solutions Inc, pre-
viously known as Florida Profiles.

The civil case arose after a $10 mil-
lion insurance policy was taken out on
Sir Orville’s life in 2006, when he was
76.

His wife, Lady Edith Turnquest, was
named as sole beneficiary.

The hefty premiums on the policy
amounted to $540,000 per year, and in
order to pay this and other fees associ-

- ated with the policy, the Sir Orville Turn-

quest Irrevocable Insurance Trust bor-
rowed $1.5 million from US-based
LaSalle Bank, it was claimed in court

Sir Orville involved in battle _
over $10m life insurance policy

Turnquest accused of trying to

avoid repaying

documents.

In its complaint, Dulaw Management
asked for the policy to be rescinded,
claiming alleged breach of agreement,
misrepresentation and conversion.
Unspecified damages were also request-
ed.

Dulaw claimed that during the early
part of 2006, Sir Orville was approached
by Financial Profiles and.“‘induced” into
getting a life insurance policy with the
company that turned out to be “not as
represented”,

According to court documents the rep-
resentation made to induce Sir Orville
Turnquest into entering this transacton
was that “this policy would be a vehicle
whereby Sir Orville Turnquest could
market his insurability im a. way that
would obtain for him a substantial prof-

tee .

However, said the complaint, “by hav-
ing the right to veto the sale of the poli-
cy to a third party at the point of matu-
rity,” the defendants eliminated Sir
Orville’s ability to market the policy as
his own.

Dulaw said the transaction was in fact
a “scheme” by which LaSalle Bank
National Association, Coventry Capital

I LLC and Boundless Solutions Inc.

“could obtain large fees and, in the
process, convert to their own, the insur-
ability of Sir Orville, and ultimately end
up with a substantial policy in an amount
exceeding $10 million on the life of Sir
Orville Turnquest”.

It said this was done “by circumvent-
ing the laws relating to insurable interests

a $1.5m loan

as well as the public policy of the state of
Florida.”

The complaint added: “None of the
defendants herein .... at any time mater-
ial hereto ever possessed an insurable
interest in the life of Sir Orville Turn-
quest.” as

Following this, two defendants, Coven-
try and LaSalle Bank, filed motions to
dismiss the complaint and compel arbi-
tration.

Coventry claimed that what took place
was “a routine transaction by which a
loan was used to finance premiums on a
life insurance policy.”

Sir Orville was accused of “attempting
to extinguish his debt” by invalidating
the transaction.

“Now the loan has matured, Turn-
quest and the Trust are claiming for the
first time that the transaction was a
sham,” said Coventry.

“The core allegation on which all of
the Plaintiff’s claims are based is that
the premium finance transaction trans-
forms a valid insurance policy into an
illegal ‘wagering contract’.”

This allegation was “legally and fac-
tually baseless,” as well as “procedural-
ly improper” in that the contracts

between the parties require disputes to.

be settled by arbitration, not litigation,
added the company’s claim.
Meanwhile, PHL in its counter-claim
said that “if the facts alleged within the
plaintiff's complaint are true” then the
company has a “significant fraud claim”
against the former Governor General,
along with Coventry, LaSalle and

GOP’s lack of interest in governing

ATLANTA - The Republican Party has
held the White House for the last eight
years, the House for 12 of the last 14 years
and the Senate for most of that time as
well. But if trends continue, that run is
about to come to an end.

With less than four weeks to Election
Day, polls today suggest that Democrat
Barack Obama will sit in the White House
come January, enjoying enhanced majori-
ties in both the House and Senate. And if
that’s how things play out, John McCain is _
doomed to be cast as the scapegoat by his
fellow Republicans, in part because they
never really liked him much in the first

piace.

Sarah Palin, by contrast, will reign as the
party’s crown princess.

- You can already see the mythology
beginning to take shape. Palin is being posi-
tioned by conservative media outlets as

- the stalwart defender of the faith, the true
believer who is fighting the infidel with all
her power but lacks a committed partner in
‘McCain.

**Palin’s the one making the arguments
that conservatives most want to hear, such
as accusing Obama of “palling around with
terrorists.” When the McCain campaign
decided to pull out of Michigan, it was
Palin who repeatedly and publicly dis-
agreed, insisting that the cause was not yet
lost and that she could turn things around.
» Palin’s star will shine even brighter in
defeat than in victory, and that would not
bode well for her party.

The GOP’s political problems have many
causes, but distilled to its essence, it can be
stated in one sentence: The Republican
Party hasn’t taken seriously the responsi-
bilities of governing.

In fact, if the Republicans could govern
as expertly and as diligently as they cam-
paign — if they simply cared as much about
governing as campaigning — the country

might today be reaping the benefits of great

prosperity and global respect, and the
Democrats would have gone the way of
the Whigs. _

But look around: That’s not exactly how
things are.

The foundations of Republican success
on the campaign trail have been appeals to
tribal politics — “they” aren’t like “us” —

a disdain for the hard work of governance
have proved disastrous.

Unfortunately, Palin epitomizes that
mindset. Tribal politics, easy ideology and
disdain for governance define her as a can-
didate. In the wake of Tuesday’s debate,
Joe Biden was making the rounds of the
morning talk shows, chatting up his candi-
date’s performance, while Sarah Palin was
nowhere to be found. Why? Because she is
an icon incapable of conversing as an intel-
ligent adult on the issues of the day. Yet the
Republican base loves her anyway, as a
symbol.

In response to such criticism, Palin’s
defenders point out that Barack Obama is
also short on experience. It’s a legitimate
point — it is certainly fair to question
whether Obama has the experience to do
well as president of the United States.

However, there is no question whatso-
ever that Obama has studied the issues
and knows them backward and forward.
He takes the job seriously. You may dis-
age with the conclusions he, has reached,
but as the campaign has demonstrated, he
knows the issues and has thought them
through.

Palin can’t even make a good pretence of
that. This country needs a more effective
Republican Party. The Democrats need a
more effective Republican Party to pro-
tect them from their own excesses. But to
become effective again, the Republicans
have to change, and they show no sign of
doing so. Quite the contrary.

If the GOP loses seats in the House and

Senate, those losses are likely to come in .

more moderate districts, distilling the GOP
caucus even closer to its ultraconservative
base. If McCain loses, conservatives. will
explain his loss by the fact that he tried to
repudiate rather than celebrate party ide-
ology.

And if Republicans designate Sarah Palin
as the face of the party’s future, as they
se-m eager to do, they will confirm the
be -f that they just aren’t serious enough
to trust with power.

‘Fallen’ lawyers
should have a
chance of
redemption —

EDITOR, The Tribune.

As one of the few disbarred

lawyers in the Commonwealth of

The Bahamas, I was pleased to
note in the press that one of my
fellow ‘fallen’ colleagues, Lec
Smith, had applied for and had
been granted a public hearing for
an application to be readmitted to
the Bar.

Disbarment is the ‘ultimate’
punishment for an attorney who
would have grossly infringed the
ethics of the legal profession
and/or abused his/her client's
trust.

Of course, the misappropria-
tion or co-mingling of clients’
funds has always been cause for
grave disciplinary measures. This
is, dear readers, the way it should
be.

A lawyer, by the very nature
of his/her training and the tradi-
tional respect which attaches to
the profession, is under an almost
sacred duty and obligation
towards his/her client and the
general public.

As an “officer of the court” an
attorney is obliged to conduct
his/her practice in an ethical and

~ honourable manner.

His/her public behaviour and
demeanour must also reflect the
highest possible standards.

I was rightfully disbarred more

than a decade ago for the misap- ,

propriation of less than B15,000.
After the Disciplinary Commit-
tee would have added on interest;
legal costs and a punitive amount
that figured ballooned to over
B$40,000.

Thanks to having a varied eco-
nomic portfolio, I was able to dis-
pgse of some real estate; moto.
vehicles and stocks so as to be

able to discharge, in full, my debt -

with my then client.

It was not. easy but, like
Hezekiah of old, I turned to the
wall and cried out: “Lord remem-
ber thy servant, Ortland.”

He answered my supplication



LETTERS

letters@triounemedia.net




and has, gracefully, put in place a
systematic process by which I am
gradually being publicly rehabili-
tated and accepted again.

Being a disbarred lawyer in
The Bahamas, especially having
such a high public profile as
myself, is no cake walk.

Putative friends and erstwhile
professional colleagues will dump
you like a hot potato.

Many of my relatives (inclusive
of brothers and sisters) promptly
abandoned me and my cause.

For a long time I was forced to
live in my Volkswagon and used
the precincts of the cemetery up
at Mount Carey Baptist Church
on Fox Hill Road, opposite Step
Street, as my personal bathroom.
Chicken snacks (thigh or breast)
was my dietary staple.

I became adept at hustling and
literally begging from the occa-
sional friend or acquaintance.

Like a wild man without a pur-
pose, I travelled up and down the
earth (England; France; Ger-
many; Switzerland and Belgium)
trying to find solace and comfort
from the mental and emotional
stress of being unceremoniously
disbarred and disgraced.

Until I went into the House of
The Lord (literally) in 1991
(Evangelistic Temple pastured by
Reverend Gary Curry and Pas-
tor Vaughan Cash), I was almost
on the brink of becoming a Sandi-
lands patient or worse.

. As soon as I entered the sanc-
tuary up at Evangelistic Temple,
The Spirit of The Lord God came
upon me and I knew that I had
been healed and that the stellar
opportunity was available for me
to call on Yahweh for salvation.
He did not disappoint me as I laid
all of my personal and profes-

sional transgressions at the foot of
the Cross.

I say all of the above to let
young legal practitioner’ realise
that unethical behaviour will
result in some form of discipli-
nary action, even disbarment.
Except you be like Ortland H
Bodie Jr, rough and tough, you
would not be able to survive such
a scenario without the ever pre-
sent help of The Lord.

And so, when I read a portion
of the submissions made by Mil-
ton Evans, Esq, on behalf of his
client for reinstatement in The
Tribune, I was flabbergasted to
say the least.

Yes, Smith must have “suffered
enough” since his disbarment, less
than a few short years ago but
what about me who wouid have
been off the rolls for exactly 20
long, long years, despite having
obtained a Deed of Release from
my former client?

The Devil is still a liar, but I
am more than persuaded that The
Lord will, again, stoop down to
ensure that I obtain justice and
mercy, at His command.

Lawyers who mess up, profes-
sionally, should be allowed to
resume their practices once they
would have made full monetary
restitution and would have paid
public penance.

Of course, such individuals
must also submit to terms and
conditions upon readmission to
the Bar.

In the meantime, however, offi-
cials of the Bar Council should
take stock of the professional
ethics and observance thereof of
themselves and should release a.
detailed list of all of those practi-
tioners who have current and out-
standing complaints against them
post haste.“To God then, in all
things, be the glory.

man, in this country is cut his
or her pay,” said Mr. Archer.
His remarks were also a slap
in the face to all hard working
citizens who pay those same
BTC salaries particularly as
many of us don't consider
BTC a very 'Hard Working'
corporation. Would Mr.
Archer pay his staff for tak-
ing time off work without per-
mission?

What consideration was
given the rest of the country
and our visitors by the union
and their sheep-like followers
before carrying out their dis-
ruptive agenda and what cost
to tax payers and businesses
alike? As long as the unions
and people of Mr. Archer’s
ilk continue to encourage their

followers to engage in activi-
ties of this sort, and they have
nothing to do with freedom of
expression, and so long as the
authorities continue to con-
done or ignore them then this
country’s inevitable slide
towards anarchy will contin-
ue.
Hopefully one day we will

hold politicians and union offi-

cials legally accountable for
the destructive actions of their
minions, and a little jail time, a
hefty fine, or both would give
them a new perspective on the
views of the hard working
common man.

THE TRIBUNE



Former BIG

president is new:

PUC executive
director

MICHAEL Symonette, for-
mer president of the Bahamas
Telecommunications Compa-
ny, has been appointed as the
new executive director of the
Public Utilities Commission.

PUC chairman Anthony
Rolle announced that the
appointment became effective
on October 1.

Mr Symonette, who served
as a member of the PUC since
July 2007, succeeds Barrett
Russell who retired in June of
this year.

A graduate of South Hall
College of Technology, he
holds a diploma in electrical
and electronics engineering.

Mr Symonette was
employed with the Bahamas
Telecommunications Corpora-
tion, which later became BTC,
from 1960 to 2006.

He spent his last 11 years at
BTC as president and Chief
Executive Officer.

Mr Symonette also pursued
several management courses
and holds diplomas from the
University of Miami, Harvard
University, and the National
University of Singapore. He is
a member and past, vice-presi-
dent of the Bahamas Institu-
tion of Professional Engineers.

At the PUC, he heads a staff

of over 20, mostly profession-
als. As the executive director
of the telecommunications sec-
tor regulator, his responsibili-
ties include the day-to-day
administration of the affairs of
the PUC.

He will also provide advice
and guidance on executing the
PUC’s functions, develop and
recommend policies affecting °
all PUC activities, and develop
and implement management
‘strategies on regulatory and |
personnel matters.

The PUC was established on

March 1, 2000, under the pro-
visions of the Utilities Com-
mission Act 1993.

PUC was established for the
economic regulation of elec-
tricity, telecommunications,
water and sewerage and
propane gas. To date, it has
only been given the regulatory
authority over telecommunica-
tions. The government will

determine when PUC becomes

the regulator for the other sec-
tors.

15 month sentence for defrauding

the Bahamas Tourist Board in England

A MARKETING executive working in
England for the Bahamas Tourist Board
was convicted on charges of fraud and
theft.

Alexei King, 40, was sentenced to 15

‘months in jail for defrauding the Bahamas

Tourist Board to support an on-line gam-
bling addiction, the Caribbean World News
reported yesterday.

According to the Luton Crown Court
documents, King set up a sideline business
of selling cheap Bahamas vacations using
his employers’ money to finance the scam.

King, of Appledore Road, Bedford, was
hired by the Tourist Board in 1999.

to arrange trips to the Bahamas for people
who could then promote the country as a
holiday destination.

Prosecutor Bozzy Sheffi told the Luton
Crown Court that for several years, King
worked well and was successful in fulfilling
his mandate.

However, last year he began to engage in
fraudulent practices.

One aspect of King’s job was to arrange
trips for ordinary people who would per-
sonally pay him about a third of the actual
cost of the vacation. However, the Tourist
Board was unwittingly picking up the tab.

Towards the end of the year he was

ing people who had previously travelled
to the Bahamas.

He told these holiday makers that if they
made up a party of 10 they could have a
free stay. ©

Many people paid up front, but the fraud
was uncovered before the trips took place.

Ms Sheffi said the Tourist Board com-
pensated everyone who had lost money
and that they had lost £26,450 ($45, 560) ,
through King’s dishonesty.

King pleaded guilty to three charges of _
fraud and two of theft and asked for 16
similar offences to be taken into consider-
ation.

said: “This is a tragedy for a proud man
who has fallen from grace. He saw him-
self as an ambassador for the Bahamas
and had everything going for him. He feels
he has disgraced those he was promoting.

“His gambling had gripped him and he
tried to deal with the problem but the debt
did not go away.

“He knew for several months that he
was going to be arrested but he did not
run away and remained to face the music.”

Judge Barbara Mensah said: “The sheer
dishonesty cannot be ignored. Your breach
of trust had an impact on the standing of

‘those who employed you and on their

finances.”

As part of his job he was given a budget

, Attorney says those wronged

by corrupt lawyers should
file criminal complaints

PERSONS who have been
wronged by corrupt lawyers should
file criminal complaints and agi-
tate for the lawyers in question to
be prosecuted instead of only rely-
ing on the Bar Association to take
disciplinary action, Attorney Gen-
eral Michael Barnett said.

Mr Barnett is also calling for the . °

creation of a special collective fund,
out of which those persons who
were hoodwinked by lawyers can
receive some sort of compensation.

Speaking as a guest on the
GEMS talk show “Tell It Like It
Is” hosted by Sean McWeeney, the
attorney general also addressed the
hot-button issue of repeat or vio-
lent offenders receiving bail,
strengthening the witness protec-
tion programme, and the enforce-
ability of capital punishment.

As it concerns dishonest lawyers,
Mr Barnett said he is right now
reviewing the Legal Profession Act
to detetmine ways to strengthen
the disciplinary clauses.

In the meantime, he advises the
public to be proactive if they have
been swindled.

“Persons who have been aggriev-
ed, wronged by dishonest acts by
lawyers, should not restrict their
efforts to simply disciplinary mat-
ters before the Bar Association.
They should lodge criminal com-
plaints and have these persons
prosecuted for criminal acts.

“They should sue them and
recover damages," said Mr Bar-
nett said.

With regard to his idea for a
compensation fund for lawyer’s vic-

tims, he said: "You may not be able
to restore them to the position that
they were at before, but the pro-
fession as a whole must find a way
to demonstrate that they are con-
cerned about the behaviour of their
colleagues, because the behaviour
of their colleagues reflects on
them.”

Recently, Andrew Thompson
was disbarred after he did not
return hundreds of thousands of
dollars he was accused of misap-
propriating from numerous clients.

Bail

Further addressing the contro-
versial issue of repeat offenders
receiving bail, Mr Barnett said: "I
share the frustration and the con-
cern with members of the public
when persons charged with serious
offenses who are perceived to be
threats to society are permitted to
go on bail.

“Parliament spoke to that in
1996 when they enacted legislation
that sought to restrict the ability of
those persons to obtain bail.

"That statute of provisions has
been construed in a manner which
gives, or preserves discretion to
courts who exercise discretion in a
particular way — I don’t want to
say more because there is present-
ly an appeal with respect to a num-
ber of those decisions. But it is cer-
tainly a matter that the society
ought to be concerned about and
its certainly a matter that warrants
further consideration both by the
executives, by parliament and by

arranging trips for 2008 and was approach-

Michael Barnett

the judiciary,” he said.

Mr Barnett said while capital
punishment still remains on
Bahamian law books, a 2006 Privy
Council ruling that abolished the
mandatory death sentence for per-
sons found guilty of murder means
that the courts have to allow the
appeals of persons on death row
to be heard.

“Now that doesn't say that you
can't execute,” he added, “‘but what
is important is that these persons
who are charged with offenses that
warrant executions, they are tried
and the appellate process is con-
ducted in an expeditious manner
and the law allowed to take its
course," said Mr Barnett.

He also said the protection. of
witnesses in capital cases is a "wider
issue" and an “increasing matter
of concern to the society and the
state" that has to be addressed.

Mario Miller’s mother says

God sustained her through
loss of son, trial collapse

Satellites collect data on
sea temperatures, reefs.

@ WEST PALM BEACH, Fla.

SATELLITES are helping scientists expand a virtual network to
watch for increases in ocean temperatures that can damage or kill
the fragile ecosystems of coral reefs worldwide, according to Asso-
ciated Press.

The National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration said
Thursday its Coral Reef Watch network has been expanded from
24 to 190 locations, including sites in the Florida Keys, the
Caribbean, Gulf of Mexico, the Indian and Pacific oceans, Indone-
sia, Australia and Hawaii.

The agency uses onsite water instruments to monitor ocean tem-
per ratures at about a dozen reefs. The expanded system uses satel-
ites to remotely monitor water temperature and other factors
without the high cost of deploying devices.

A mere 2-degree rise in typical summertime water temperature
can stress corals, causing the tiny marine creatures that form reefs
to expel algae living in their tissues. The so-called bleaching upsets
the symbiotic nature of the ecosystem by exposing their white
skeletons.

Many corals can recover from a mild, short-lived bleaching event.
But if it occurs over a longer period, entire colonies die. The
Caribbean region has lost at least 50 percent of its corals, largely
because of warmer seas. ,

“Bleaching is a major threat to the health of endangered coral
reef ecosystems across the earth,” NOAA administrator and retired
Navy Vice Adm. Conrad C. Lautenbacher said. “The expansion of
this critical climate monitoring tool will help us better track, under-
stand and mitigate the impacts of warming waters that contribute

_to the bleaching damage.”

TURNQUEST
Tribune Staff Reporter

HELEN MILLER, the moth-
er of Mario Miller, says only
her faith in God has sustained
her through the loss of her son
and the collapse of the trial into
his murder.

Mario was the victim of a
gruesome homicide over six
years ago, and the trial of two
men accused of his killing cap-
tured the attention of the entire
country leading up to the ver-
dict, which was handled down
on Tuesday.

The trial ended in a hung jury
as 11 jurors found the accused
guilty and one found him inno-
cent. The case will have to be
re-tried again early next year.

Throughout this ordeal, Mrs
Miller and her daughter Yas-
mine Miller-Johnson, along
with Mario’s father Leslie
Miller, have been permanent
fixtures in the court room.

During the trial, and even fol-
lowing the disappointing turn
out, Mrs Miller'said faith in
God has sustained her.

“All during the time of the
trial, the Lord told me to just
trust him. And in trusting God.
It means that no matter what
the circumstances are you have
that peace.

“So I was not really that
bothered as Leslie and Yasmine
because I was standing on the
word of God. So I’m just trust-
ing Him, and if that’s the way it
happened, then I'm still trusting
Him that He knows what’s best
and He will do it,” she said.

When asked if she could bare
to go through the case once
again, Mrs Miller said that is all
that she can do, and that there
‘© nothing that she can think of
that would deter her from com-
ing out for another trial.

“And this might sound unbe-
lievable, but I was just in a
mode where I was trusting God,
and. in trusting God in spite of

YASMINE MILLER: JOHNSON is contorted outside of court by Helen
Miller. Leslie Miller looks on in the background.

whatever, I know that he is
working it out.

“And this is the first time in
my whole Christian life that I
have learned what it truly
means to trust in God. I feel
that I am fully under the wings
of God. He just has me cov-
ered.”

It is this deep and unshakable
devotion to God, Mrs Miller
said, that has sustained her and
kept her strong despite the
great pain she felt throughout
the trial.

Trust

“No matter what season I go
through in life, I will always
stand on the hill and tell of the
goodness of the Lord. I can’t
think of anything that will come
my way that I still cannot say
that God has been faithful and I
can trust him and this is just
another one of those experi-
ences for me,” she said.

Thinking back on the memo-
ry of her son, Mrs Miller said
she knew that Mario loved her
and was always there for her.
It is with this in mind that she
feels that if Mario were alive

today, he would tell her te not
allow anything to cause her
faith to falter.

“This is extremely painful.
Trusting God does not mean
that we don’t feel the pain. It
just means that He helps us to
go through it. And this has been
extremely painful for me and at
times, full of shame. For your
child, simply his name, to be
used with drugs - this is not
what I taught Mario; so this
whole situation has been like a
battering for me.

“Because I spent my entire
life with the youth of the nation
teaching about keeping away
from violence and drtgs and I
am still doing it. Even just imag-
ining that he participated in
something so sinister that in
itself can knock you off your
feet. But I still have to continue
what I’m doing, and I still have
to stand.”

Mrs Miller said that she still
does not know where and how
her son died as she has heard
many different accounts of that

} dreadful day over six years ago.

handle the ordeal with grace
and dignity. As the siblings
were very close, Mrs Miller said ©
that the family had initially kept
many of the details of the mur-
der away from Yasmine as she
was pregnant when Mario was
killed.

Yasmine said that trial and
its outcome were therefore like
losing Mario “all over again”.
She said the outcome of the tri-
al was extremely disappointing,
as a hung jury brings the family
no closer to resolution.

Reality

“T think I miss him more than
anything now. I don’t think I
truly had an opportunity to
grieve for him because I had to
be strong for my parents and
then at the time I was pregnant
with my second son, Mario. So I
kind of blocked it out, but this
case actually brought everything
to reality for me, and I was able
to truly, at some points, feel the
pain that my brother actually
felt,” she said.

Mrs Miller-Johnson also took
issue with the way her brother
was portrayed during the trial.
She felt he was described as
“less than human”.

“If you listen to some of the
attorneys, one made a state-
ment like, ‘Mario was a drug
dealer, and so shall you live, so
shall you die’. But Mario was
loved. Whatever he was
involved in, he would never dis-
cuss things like that with me,
mommy or daddy, especially
mommy. So he could never
come to us with anything like
that.

“But the brother I had, the
way they tried to portray him,
he was not that type of person.
And in response to what the
attorney said, ‘so shall you live,
so shall you die’, then the good
die young and fast. He was a
human.

' “And I think this whole thing
for me is just devastating,” she
said.

Haiti needs
$107m for
stabilisation

after storms

m@ By LLOYD L ALLEN

Tribune Staff Reporter

HAITI requires a total of
$107 million to stabilise the
country following the
onslaught of several tropical
storms and hurricanes.

Speaking at a consulate
luncheon on Wednesday,
Haitian Ambassador to the
Bahamas Louis Harold
Joseph said that from
August 15 to September 8,
the struggling Caribbean
nation was repeatedly bat-
tered by numerous storms
and hurricanes, which has
lead to an extremely chaotic
environment in the country.

So far, about 22 per cent
of the required sum of
$107,714,621 has been col-
lected. |

However, even with coun-
tries like the United States
and Canada already con-
tributing close to $15 million
collectively, and with the
Bahamas pledging around
$500,000, and CARICOM
promising another $10 mil-
lion, Ambassador Joseph
said there is still a great
need for relief aid.

He explained that the
most of the donated money
is needed for food, shelter,
social and health services.

While other areas are also
in need of assistance, these
are the most important ones,
requiring an immediate -
response, he said.

A month after Haiti was
first hit by Hurricane Fay,
Hurricane Gustav struck,
followed closely by Tropical
Hannah. A final blow was

then dealt by the devastating

Hurricane Ike, which
claimed the lives of almost
800 Haitians.

The ambassador said that

- many.more could still die
due the lack of food and
medical care.

Ambassador Joseph
explained that due to signifi-
cant levels of soil erosion
throughout the country,
many of the major food pro-
ducing areas have been
destroyed.

As agricultural sites have
ceased production, millions
of persons have been left
suffering from a food short-
age.

This situation, the ambas-
sador said, has evolved into

a health crisis, increasing the :

social and economic imbal-
ance in the country.

Ambassador Joseph also
noted that the area of
Gonaives in northern Haiti
has been devastated by the

storms.

Many access roads in that
area are still inaccessible for
vehicles, leaving health and
aid workers with no option
but to travel by helicopters.

As of October 1, Ambas-
sador Joseph said there have
been 793 deaths, 69 missing,
and 307 injured people as
the result of the storms.

A total of 151,421 Haitian
families are affected.in some
way or the other, he said.

The ambassador said that
based on a report by the
United Nations Office for
the Continuation of Human-
itarian Affairs, some 3,069
Ibs of seedlings have already
been distributed to farmers

throughout the country in an

effort to restart the halted
agricultural industry. ,

Though the ambassador
called this effort by the UN
a-“valiant” one, it is still not
enough.

Ambassador Joseph said _

that persons who interested
in donating food, clothes, or

funds to the Haiti, can either é

contact the local Red Cross
office, or visit

ther information.

BY THE end of this month,
the Water and Sewerage Cor-

completed the installation of
water mains in eastern New
Providence at the cost of $2.1
million to tackle two areas of
concern for the Corporation. flay

Minister of State for the Envi- |%

the first of these concerns is
“non-revenue water” - water
either lost due to leaks or unac- &\
counted for and therefore not

The other concern is “rusty
water” or “poor quality water

Neymour explained during a |

Workers from the Corporation are installing 10-

“We have already installed a mile and a half of

view of eliminating rusty water,” Mr Neymour
said.

“We are also completing the side corners off of the

ENVIRONMENTAL experts
say all Bahamians should be
accountable for where their refuse
is dumped, regardless of who they
hired to remove it.

The Bahamas National Trust
and the Department of Environ-
mental Health said both house-
holds and companies must held
responsible for their trash if illegal
dumping is to be stopped.

“At the moment there is an ‘out
of sight, out of mind’ mentality
towards garbage disposal and any-
one who hires someone to take
their trash should care about where
it ends up,” said the BNT in astate-
ment.

Bonefish Pond and areas along
Cowpen Road have been plagued
with illegal dumping for many
years. Two years ago that BNT
took a trucking company to court
for dumping in the park and won a
judgment against the offender.

“Typically, trucks are hired to
take rubbish from a household or a
respectable business, unfortunate-
ly they often do not make it to the
landfill to offload their cargo.
Those visiting the park on Saturday
were shocked to find company
logos visually evident in much of
the garbage found in the park,” the
BNT said.

The landfill on Harrold Road is
the only legal dumpsite on New
Providence. Only loads that are
300lbs and above are charged a
modest fee of $10.

The Department of Environ-
mental Health is encouraging the
public to-defer payment to trucking

Mr Neymour explained that
an additional reason for
installing the water mains is to
improve customer service.

“Late last year we received a
number of complaints from the
residents from the Eastern Road
and the Fox Hill areas com-

said,

“So we felt that it was criti-

“We had challenges a few

which is financing. I think that’s going to be the fun-
damental question—the government is going to have
to appreciate that for any results that he is seeking to
do they are going to have to spend money to fix the
product,” said Mr Wilchcombe.

Mr Vanderpool-Wallace gave a televised address
laying out his new and in some respects “radical”
master plan for tourism at the British Colonial Hilton
on Wednesday.

Among other changes, he said it involves rebrand-
ing and-more aggressively marketing the Family
Islands, making Bahamas.com the Ministry’s
“tourism office” for the world, taking steps to cause
airlines to reduce the cost of travel to the Bahamas,

_ and targeting new markets like Brazil and China.

He also said he had “re-focused” the Ministry’s
budget, cutting back on “low priority” projects.

While Mr Vanderpool-Wallace did not put a clear
timeline on the roll-out period for the strategy, yes-

. terday Mr Wilchcombe said he sees it as “frankly, a

et



ten to twenty year plan that’s short medium and
longterm.”

“T have a lot of confidence in Vince Vanderpool
Wallace, and I believe in his ability, and I believe he
is a nationalist who wants the best for this country
and he’s going to do all he can. He’s going to burn the:
midnight oil, I’ve worked with him and I have no rea-
son to doubt what he is saying.

“We've got a lot of work to do but it’s obviously
thought out. He obviously knows this Bahamas — he
understands the global tourism picture but it’s not
going to be easy.”

Mr Wilchcombe said Mr Vanderpool-Wallace will
have a particularly hard road ahead of him because
of a lack of foresight displayed by Prime Minister
Hubert Ingraham.

“T criticised the Ingraham administration for one
thing. His first appointment (of Neko Grant). We’re
off target. We could’ve, I think, cushioned the blow
if we were forecasting and looking ahead. We were .

not. And so what happened was we hit rock bottom
and now Vince has to really rebuild the whole thing,”
said the ex-minister.

As for Mr Vanderpool-Wallace’s suggestion that
steps will be taken to reduce the cost of flights from
the U.S. to the Bahamas by, among other things,

‘reducing associated taxes levied on airlines, Mr

Wilchcombe pointed to one major “outstanding
issue” that must be addressed if costs to airlines
landing in this country are to be lowered.

“The overtime that’s paid to customs, it was up to
around $5 million when I was (Minister). That has
impacted (airline’s) arrivals and they have been very
concerned about it. So I suppose (Vanderpool-Wal-
lace) is going to work with the minister responsible
for customs and the union to find a way to reduce

’ that overtime cost and if you could do that all the air-

lines would be impacted significantly,” he said.

As for the idea that there must be greater “brand-
ing” and marketing of individual Family Islands, the
ex-minister said this was something he totally agrees

with and in fact came under fire for when minister

from New Providence-based hotels.

Mr Wilchcombe said he believes Mr Vanderpool-
Wallace will “make a major impact in tourism” if he
can “get his staff performing at the level they really
should and get the technology performing” because
he is “able to get support on all sides of the political
fence, he’s able to get support from the industry, he
understands the public-private sector participation
more so than most politicians do.” ;

He also gave a warning: “What we must do in the
future is that governments must not come in and
just arbitrarily make changes because they have the
power to do:so. It doesn’t make sense because you
mess around with the economy. You don’t under-
stand that just one decision could cause an airline to
pull out, an airline to close its doors or cause you to
lose a piece of the market.”

there is a way that-can’ be reduced

that, would probably be of benefit |.

to all the out islands.”

‘Sammy Thurston, owner of
Sammy T’s beach resort in Cat
Island and Vice President of the
Out Island Promotion Board said:
“Marketing the Out Islands is all
we do. We have been aggressive-
ly promoting the islands over the
last five years or so, so I don’t
think that’s the problem.”

Adding that he knows Mr Van-
derpool-Wallace has the
Bahamas’ “best interests at
heart,” Mr Thurston also said he
sees access and cost as the main
prohibiting factors.

After a good first five years,
his resort is down 40 per cent on
bookings this year, Mr Thurston
said.

“T hope his new plaris do come
and do something positive for us
because we do desperately need
it,” he said.

On Wednesday, Mr Vander-
pool Wallace said: “We have
been making the Out Islands look
as if once you have seen one you
have seen them all, and there is
no reason for you to go there. We
are going to make sure that the
products we have available are
much more differentiated than
what we have ever done before in
the islands of the Bahamas.”

He said the Ministry will begin
marketing the Bahamas “as a
region...not a destination.”

He also said that the Ministry
will be strengthening the
Bahamas.com website to make it

more attractive to potential visi-!”!

to entice tourists. ’ :
The Out Islands Promotion
Board has been operating for
“over twenty years” and has its
own user-friendly website which
details the resorts and activities
that are available on individual
Family Islands, including Abaco,
Eleuthera, Acklins and Bimini,
According to President Jeff
Birch, also principal owner of the
Androsia company and the Small
Hope Bay Lodge on Andros, the
Board has in recent years spent
between “$500,000 to $700,000 in
partnership with members and
ministry of tourism” promoting
Out Island tourism each year.
Now, according to Mr Birch,
the board and its members “who
are experts in Family Island
tourism” and represent 65 differ-
ent properties expect to have
input into how $3-5 miillion of

Government money will be spent
promoting the Family Islands.

Mr Thurston says he hopes
money will be spent on encour-
aging more “island hopping” by
visitors, an initiative first pro-
moted by Majestic Tours in the
Bahamas which has “served him
well.”

Mr Birch said he was impressed
by several parts of the new
tourism plan, and thinks there is
an “exciting synergy” now
between the public and private
sector to an extent not seen
before. i

He also praised what he said is

“a “feal business ‘orientation to

tourism that seems to be con-
cerned with the national welfare
and the betterment of all Bahami-
ans and it seems like it is less like-
ly to be interfered with by politi-
cally motivated interests.”

He added that “there’s no
question that (the Minister’s) con-
cept of the fact The Bahamas is a
huge nation in terms of square
miles is true, and that many peo-

Historian calls for exciting approach
to teaching children in the Caribbean

lm BY LINDSAY THOMPSON

Historian Dr Gail Saunders
called for a more “exciting
approach” to teaching children
in the Caribbean how to
becomé productive citizens.

She made the call in her pre-
sentation, *Rebuilding Societies
Through Education and Cul-
ture” at the 13th Conference of
Presidents and Governors-Gen-
eral of the Caribbean Commu-
nity on Monday.

“What is needed to cabiula
societies through education and
culture is to create excitement
in the classroom,” Dr Saunders
said. .

“Somehow we must learn
how to use new technology and
visual aids, and new methods
to create excitement to teach
our children history, literature,
science and other subjects.”

Dr Saunders took the heads -

of state on a journey through
the history of the Bahamas and
the Caribbean, from pre-eman-
cipation years to the 21st cen-
tury.

She said reforms in education
in the 1890s were followed with
school building programmes,
the introduction of standards
and more practical curricula in
secondary schools.

By the 1900s, the elementary
and secondary system of edu-
cation was firmly established in

the British Caribbean, she said.

In The Bahamas, Majority
Rule heralded a new era in edu-
cation, which received the lion’s
share of the government’s bud-
get in 1967.

Additional reforms followed,
new schools were built, sec-
ondary education was expanded
and more attention given to ter-
tiary education including the
establishment of the College of
the Bahamas in 1974.

“The reforms in the Com-

monwealth Caribbean during
the independence era stressed
the need for equality in soci-
eties which suffered from the
effects of enslavement and colo-
nialism resulting in a lack of
confidence among its peoples
and also innate feelings of infe-
riority,” Dr Saunders said.
She noted that nearer to
Independence in 1973, there
was more interest in Bahamian
history and culture, and a thirst
to explore and to preserve the

Bahamian identity. “Bahami-
ans, who are mainly of African
descent, identified with their
African roots through art, poet-
ry, photography, dance, music,
folklore, the holding of festivals
— particularly Junkanoo.

_ “However, perhaps the most
ambitious project to showcase
Bahamian indigenous culture
was Jumbey Village, the brain-
child of parliamentarian
Edmund Moxey, which focused
on displaying traditional
Bahamian village life including
Bahamian music, art, history,
food and craft,” she said.

She pointed out that over the
years the world changed; capi-
talism and market forces have
become the main driving forces
inthe region...

And by the 1990s, the tech-
nological revolution which
resulted in the information age,
as' well as human resource
development, became critical
issues for the Caribbean if it
intends to compete globally.

“Education should teach chil-
dren to think critically, to train
the mind and to develop the
student to his or her full poten-
tial.

“More often than not, teach-
ers are too busy preparing chil-
dren to pass examinations
rather than educating them,”
Dr Saunders said.

Florida mayors welcome Bahamian to address community leaders

THREE Florida mayors were on hand
to welcome Bahamian Dr Myles Munroe
for a one day leadership training seminar.

The seminar drew more than 300 Flori-
da community leaders on Monday. The
mayors in attendance were: James Naugle
of Davie, Tom Truex of Fort Lauderdale
and Debbie Eisinger of Cooper.

Director of religious tourism for the

Ministry of Tourism Linville Johnson was ~

also on hand.

He said: "It was such a delight and
sense of pride to see in Florida yester-
. day a Bahamian impacting leaders of the
second largest state in America. I truly
feel blessed to sit at the feet of one of
the greatest communicators and influ-
encers of the world in modern times."

He added: "Dr Munroe through his

global work continues to support and
marketing efforts of the Ministry of
Tourism."

The event, which was hosted and spon-
sored by the Ministry of Tourism, Myles
Munroe International and the Broward
Pastors Network, addressed the issue of

_ leadership in times of crisis.
"In light of the present economic chal-

lenges facing the United States and its
inevitable effect on the Bahamas econo-
my, the call for this seminar and the
tremendous response of the community
leaders is evidence that this event is time-
ly and necessary," said Dr Munroe.

President of Broward Pastors Network,
Mario Bramnick said: "We need strong
leadership training during economic times
such as these.

“This seminar could not have come at a
better time. It is this kind of training we
need to take into the various sectors of
our community."

Florida community leader Pepe Ram-
nath said: "This is one to the most impor-
tant meeting we have had as one looks at
the present crisis facing our communi-
ties with many losing their jobs, houses
and livelihood.

“We need effective leadership response
to these challenges and Dr Munroe deliv-
ered.

“T look forward along with many of my
fellow leaders to come to the Bahamas
this November to attend the upcoming
Leaders Summit hosted ‘by Dr Myles
Munroe and his organisation. We need
more training."

Raising breast cancer awareness



EMPLOYEES of the Higgs and Johnson law firm participate in
the Lee National Denim Day to raise awareness of breast
cancer in the Bahamas.

THE month of October is National Breast Cancer Awareness
Month. The staff of the Higgs and Johnson law firm joined the
National Breast Cancer Awareness Initiative, the Cancer Society and
the Sister Sister Cancer Support Group by participating in the
annual Lee National Denim Day on October 3, 2008.

This initiative was started in 1996 by Lee Jeans employees and has
grown to become one of the largest single-day fundraisers by raising
more than $70 million in the fight against breast cancer.

The management of Higgs and Johnson relaxed the dress code for
that day and allowed staff members to wear their favorite jeans
with the designated pink or white T-shirts. In addition, pink pins and
wristbands were also purchased and worn. Higgs and Johnson
joined millions around the world on that day in an effort to increase
awareness of breast cancer. It is the ongoing hope that this will help
in one day finding a cure against the disease.

RASHAD MCCANTS scored 13
of his 15 points in the fourth quarter
and Rodney Carney and Ryan
Gomes hit consecutive 3s to help
Minnesota spoil the Oklahoma City
Thunder’s preseason debut with an
88-82 victory Wednesday night.

The game was the Thunder’s first
since the team moved from Seattle
to Oklahoma City during the off-
season.

The Thunder led 71-62 with 9:54
remaining, but McCants scored 11
of Minnesota’s next 14 points, tying
the score at 76 with a dunk with
4:45 remaining.

“IT had a pretty rough first half,”
McCants said. “I really couldn’t get
it going. I got in foul trouble. My
teammates carried me. I needed to
get to the line a little bit more.”

Two free throws by McCants and
the consecutive 3s by Carney and
Gomes gave the Wolves an 84-78
lead with 2:23 remaining.

A basket by Chris Wilcox pulled
the Thunder to 84-80 with 2:11
remaining, but Sebastian Telfair
made a basket and two free throws
to finish the scoring for Minneso-
ta, which had a 22-60 record last
season.

“In the fourth quarter, coach puts
the players on the floor he knows
can sustain runs, play defense, put
some points on the board,”
McCants said. “In the fourth quar-
ter we did all those things. We made
stops. ,

“We withstood their runs and we
were able to make one of our own
and then were able to keep the lead.
In the past, we weren’t able to do
those things. We’d get up and when
we'd lose the lead we'd be finished
for the rest of the game.”

nine rebounds for the Wolves (2-0)
and Corey Brewer finished with 11
points. Kevin Love and Carney each
finished with 10.

Damien Wilkins led the Thunder
with 19 points, including a layup to
tie the score at 78 with 3:04 to play.
McCants fouled out on the play, but
Wilkins missed the free throw.
Wilcox added 17 points for the
Thunder, Russell Westbrook had
13 and Kevin Durant finished with
10 points and seven rebounds.

Oklahoma City led 41-40 at half-

‘time after trailing by as many as 12

points in the first quarter.

“We dug a big hole early. I was
really happy with the way we got
back in it on defense,” Thunder
coach P.J. Carlesimo said. “The
defense was good until five-minute
mark in the fourth quarter. Then
we just did a very poor job. We
fouled and compounded it with



sloppy execution. You can’t turn it
over the way we did.”

Still, he said he was encouraged
with the team’s effort after seven
days of practice.

“TY don’t like the loss,” Carlesimo
said. “I especially don’t like the way
we lost.”

But he was happy to hold the

‘Timberwolves to 88 points after

they scored 117 in a win over Mil-
waukee on Monday.

Timberwolves coach Randy
Wittman said his team played solid
as a group, despite some shooting
troubles.

“That was a good game to still
grind out a win when you shoot 37
percent,” he said.

NOTES: Durant made the first
basket for the Thunder with 11:03
left in the first quarter.

* Wilcox followed with an alley-
oop dunk on an assist by Nick Col-

DEVIN HARRIS scored 21 points to lead the New
Jersey Nets to a 100-98 overtime victory over the Miami
Heat on Thursday night in an exhibition game.

Michael Beasley, the second overall draft pick in June,
scored 21 points for the Heat but missed a chance to
force a second overtime when he the second of his two
free throws rattled out in the closing seconds. Dwyane
Wade also scored 21 points for Miami and was largely
rested in the third and fourth quarters, while Vince
Carter was limited to only eight points for the Nets.

The Heat led 41-29 in the second quarter, but the
Nets rallied to take an 87-77 lead with less than 5 minutes
left in regulation. Miami fought back before Stromile
Swift’s dunk put the Nets ahead 91-89 with 30 seconds

Federer to
play Madrid
Masters
after layoff

@ TENNIS
MADRID, Spain
Associated Press



RO’ ER
FEDERER
will play at
the Madrid
Masters next
week, ending
a three-week
layoff and
setting up a
possible
meeting with
top-ranked
Rafael Nadal.

“Without a doubt it’s a
wonderful thing knowing we
can count on Roger Federer
being here for another year,”
tournament director Manolo
Santana said on Thursday.

The second-ranked Feder-
er won the tournament in
2006 and was runner-up last
year. The Swiss star skipped
this week’s Stockholm Open
saying he needed rest as he
continues to rebound from a
bout of mononucleosis at the
start of the year. :

If the world’s top players
meet in the tournament,
which starts Monday, it
would be the first time since
Nadal ended Federer’s bid
for a sixth straight Wimble-
don crown in June. The
Spaniard then assumed the
No. 1 ranking, which the
Swiss had held for a record
237 weeks.

Fede.cr was knocked out
of the Olympic tournament
in Beijing where Nadal won
the gold medal.

“Madrid’s conditions and
the type of surface are ideal
for Roger’s game,” said San-
tana, a former Wimbledon
winner. “We hope he arrives
refreshed and that he can
allow us to enjoy his best ten-
nis.”

Kohlschreiber advanced
when third-seeded Juan Mar-
tin del Potro pulled out due
to inflammation in his right
toe. Kohlschreiber will meet
fifth-seeded Fernando Ver-
dasco ou Friday.

The eighth-seeded Monfils
beat Radek Stepanek of the
Czech Republic 6-4, 6-3 and
will play second-seeded Fer-
nando Gonzalez of Chile.

Lopez, who won the tour-
nament in 2004, defeated San-
tiago Giraldo of Colombia 7-6
(5), 6-3. He will play Melzer, a
7-6 (4), 6-3 winner over Juan
Carlos Ferrero.

Philipp Petzschner and Car-
los Moya play in the fourth
quarterfinal on Friday.

Montfils had two breaks to
one in the first set. He broke
twice more in the second after
dominating with powerful
forehand groundstrokes.

“My game was very solid
today and I am glad that I
stayed focused throughout the
match,” Monfils said.

Ferreso won just five points
on Melzer’s serve in the open-
ing set and was broken twice
in the second.

“I got the feeling today that
I just couldn’t do anything
wrong,” Melzer said. “I tried
to be the first to take the ini-
tiative in every rally and I was
hitting winners from all
angles.”

Del Potro, who has won
four ATP titles this season,
broke a toe nail at the U.S.
Open. The injury worsened
during his win over Martin
Fischer on Wednesday.

He was unable to play

Davydenko beat Safin in the

“T have nod illusions,” Safin’ ~

The defending champion won
four straight games in the first
set and five straight in the sec-

56 minutes.

“The score speaks for itself,”
Davydenko said. “I played con-

Davydenko is looking for his
fourth title this season.

Safin took a 5-2 lead in the
decisive set and served the
match out with an ace.

“It was a strange match,”
Safin said. “I should have
played like I did in the first and
the third set and it could have

there was something wrong with

Houston is trying to erase }
the sting of last week’s col- }

San Diego behind the suc- :
cess of their unorthodox sin- }
gle wing or Wilcat formation, :
coach Gary Kubiak knows :
his team will “have its hands :

full” this week.

“You’re preparing for two A

offensive football teams,”
Kubiak said. “You’ve got to
be really sharp and diagnose

and identify formations and :
those types of things. Nor- ;
mally, you’ve got one guy :
leading the defensive group, :
but you’ve got to have:
eleven guys watching how }
they break the huddle, who :
comes out and what’s going :
on. So, confusion is ani

issue.”

Kubiak isn’t surprised :
they’ve had success with the :

talent of Ronnie Brown, who :
runs the offense out of that :

figures the Dolphins will add :

this week.

ple of weeks,” Brown said. :

Brown thinks it will be

cat as teams get used to it.

“The more defenses see it, :

“At the same time, that’s just :

’ CHICAGO BEARS @
ATLANTA FALCONS
¢ Cowboy Bob Orton has really
ruined a lot of material by actually
becoming a good quarterback. In the
last two weeks, Orton has thrown for

~~555 yards and fivé touchdowns with no |

interceptions. If you had told me
Qrton would finish the complete 16
game season with 5 touchdowns I
would have argued for hours that he

. would only get three. What I didn't
count on was Matt Forte developing

_into a legit starting.running back, what
I didn't count on:yas that Devin Hes-
ter would move to receiver and have
an immediate impact (two touchdowns
in the last two games), but most of all I
didn't count on Cowboy Bob's ability

‘to make the right reads, throw accu-

. rately, throw: with power, lead an
offence, stand upright, walk properly,
remember to snap the ball...

. Ok so we have to adjust the Falcons
theory a little. Maybe it’s not that
they’re bad at home and are good on
the road, maybe it’s that they just can't
sustain being good or terrible for con-
secutive weeks. Will this continue for
the rest of the season until they finish
8-8? This week will either validate the
theory or buck the trend. Incidentally,
every time Matt Ryan throws a touch-
down pass to a streaking Roddy White,
I want Dolphin fans to remember that
could have been Matt Ryan in Miami
throwing to Ted Ginn. ,

BALTIMORE RAVENS @.
INDIANAPOLIS COLTS

e Sage Rosenfels may have
unleashed terror on the rest of the
AFC. Every game you thought, “Well
this has to be weak, the offence breaks
out right?” Thanks to Rosenfels, it
was. Peyton Manning will probably put
forth new rules to the competition

graded from the NFL to the NCAA. I
question Rod Marinelli's judgment, if
your team isn’t winning with Jon Kit-
na, there's no way you're winning with
Dan Orlovsky...none. That has to be
the worst quarterback name of all
time. Incidentally, the best quarterback
name of all time...Joe Theisman.

I watched it and I still\don't under-
stand how the Vikings won last week
with Adrian Peterson doing absolutely
nothing. The only logical answer is the
resurrection of Gus Frerotte. There's
no one better in the history of football
than taking a few years off until you
forget about him, only to come back
and be good again. He's like the
Daniel Day-Lewis of pro football. He
did "The Boxer in 1997" and went
AWOL until 2002 to do "Gangs of
New York" and took another five
years before he did "There Will be
Blood" in 2007. The ramblings chooses
to ignore "The Ballad of Jack and
Rose," lets all pretend it didn't happen.

OAKLAND RAIDERS @
NEW ORLEANS SAINTS

e The last time the Raiders fired
their head coach four games into the
season (Mike Shanahan in 1989) they
were also 1-3, and wound up finishing
the season 8-8. Although back then
they had Bo Jackson so we shouldn't
really expect a repeat of history.
McFadden is good, but he's a rookie,
whereas Bo Jackson was considered by
some small countries in Sub Saharan
Africa to be a demigod.

Along with the Chargers, the Saints
have to be the most surprising sub .500
team in the NFL. It depends on how
you approach the situation. Either
they’re one of those good teams that
will turn it around and learn to win
close games or they’ll be a mediocre
team that misses out on the playoffs
because they lost games early in the
season that they should have won.
Don’t blame Mr. Kardashian though,
they wasted a breakout performance
by him.

CINCINNATI BENGALS @
NEW YORK JETS

¢ A 56 point outing, a bye-week, and

hood means the Jets will be just a game
behind the idle Bills in the division |
race.

Carson Palmer came back, Chad
Ocho Cinco is healthy, T.J. is playing

MIAMI DOLPHINS @
HOUSTON TEXANS

e So just when everybody gets used
to the Wildcat offence and thinks it’s
the only trick play in the Dolphins
playbook. Wham! That’s when they
break out the Fumblerooski. You
know what, I think they should just go
with the entire O’Shea playbook from
The Little Giants. Joey Porter can be
Icebox. Here’s the real issue, if the
Wildcat can keep working, Pennington
can continue to pick teams apart with
the play action, and the defence con-
tinues at this pace, then how far can
this team go. Wait a minute....how did I
get sucked into believing in them
again, this wasn’t supposed to happen
for another two years. I drank the
Kool-Aid...there’s no way this ends
well (Or is there? NO!!).

JACKSONVILLE JAGUARS @
DENVER BRONCOS

e The Broncos are reminiscent of
the 2006 Colts. A great offence led by
perhaps the league’s best quarterback,
a defence that can stop the pass but is
absolutely putrid against the run. As
intimidating and explosive the Broncos
offence is, their rush defence is equally
as sheepish and horrendous. Peyton
Manning was able to handle the sus-
tained pressure week in and.week out

‘and the defense played well enough in

two playoff games to propel them to a
Superbowl berth. I don’t know if the
Broncos defence has two good games
in them.

After being held to just 38 yards
rushing last week, the Jaguars running
game will be looking to break out in a
major way against a 25th ranked
defence.

JAGUARS - 27

DALLAS COWBOYS @

ARIZONA CARDINALS
e I thought the Cardinals offence

would take a hit without Anquan

Boldin, but as Joey Tribiani would say,

“T was wwwaaayyy off.” The Cards
responded with 41 points and it’s .
become apparent to me that there is no
way to stop a quarterback who wears
two, gloves.

My confidence in the Cowboys con-
tinues to fade because of the holes in
the defence. They’ll get through the
regular season fine and they’ll look

games in a row including at home to
the Falcons. Bret Farve must be rolling
over in his grave watching what is hap-

is they drew Seattle on the schedule
this week. There’s nothing better for
confidence, moral and to rebound from
a three game losing streak than to play -
a 1-3 team that has suddenly become |
completely one dimensional. Aaron «
Rodgers passed the fitness test last
week but this team still needs to do.a =
much better job stopping the run hav-~
ing given up at least 175 yards rushing
for three consecutive weeks.

THE St. Andrew’s Hurri-
canes are sending a clear mes-
sage that they are not taking
any team for granted in their
bid to win the Bahamas Asso-
ciation of Independent Sec-
ondary Schools’ junor boys
softball tigle that slipped away
from them last year.

The runners-up handed the
defending champions St.
Augustine’s College Big Red
Machines their only loss during
the season opener. Yesterday,
the Hurricanes blew past the
Charles W. Saunders Cougars
to remain undefeated.



Exploding for nine runs on
just three hits as they batted
around the clock in the top of
the fifth inning, St. Andrew’s
pulled off a huge 16-7 win at
Charles W. Saunders to push
their record to 6-0, dropping
the Cougars to 2-2.

“T thought we could have
done a little better. We made a
few errors, but I think we
played okay,” said St.
Andrew’s Justin Higgs, who
secured the win on the mound
and helped his cause on the

.

offensive attack.

On the mound, Higgs had a
pretty good pitching perfor-
mance, throwing a six-hitter
with six strike outs, including

retiring the side in the second. .

And on the offensive end,
Higgs went 2-for-4 with a pair
of runs batted in. His two RBIs
came in the decisive fifth
inning on a two-out single.

It was Higgs’ second at-bat
in the inning as he had a walk
as the second batter. On both
trips, he scored a run.

r



Shortstop Ashland Butler”
had four walks and he crossed .

the plate scoring every time,
while first baseman Leighton
Gibson had a triple, a walk and
was hit by a pitch twice as he
scored two runs.

Catcher Morgan Souder had
a walk and a single, scoring
twice and left fielder Alex

Euteneur singled and scored a

run. Just about every other

batter made a contribution in ~

the win.

About their winning streak,
Higgs said they are proving
that they are “the best team in
the league” and they intend to

“go all the way.’

“One of the things that we’re
doing in the upgrade is over-
laying the current GSM net-

explained.

“The ASO frequency is where
the TDMA network sits now,
and that will allow the company
to have greater coverage and
greater capacity [for GSM].
When Bahamians go to other
jurisdictions, the GSM network
rests at A5O, so we’re confident
that it will have the capacity and

Freeport economy now
just like after Frances’

fl Business owner says car sales fallen ‘to nothing’, with gas
sales down by two-thirds, forcing eight to 10 staff lay-offs

@ By NEIL HARTNELL
Tribune Business Editor

Freeport’s economy has fallen into the same
condition today that it was post-Hurricane
Frances in 2004, one businessman told Tribune
Business yesterday, having been forced to let
eight to 10 staff go after sales “dropped to
nothing”.

Larry Albury, general manager of Freeport
Jet Wash and Auto Mart, said: “Car sales have
dropped to nothing. Things are like they were
after Frances.

“We had no sales for six months after
Frances, and that’s what we’re seeing again.
We’ve had the odd one sale here, one sale
there, but before Frances we were selling 35
cars per month.”

Mr Albury added that gasoline sales had
dropped by two--thirds in volume as a result of
the depressed Freeport economy, its state hav-
ing been further exacerbated by the US eco-

nomic malaise, global liquidity/credit crunch
fallout and latest Wall Street meltdown.

The Freeport Jet Wash and Auto Mart boss
said that instead of asking for $20 or $40 to
be pumped into their vehicle’s tanks, drivers
were now only requesting one or two gallon fill-
ups to preserve disposable income and alleviate
the impact of soaring global oil prices.

“I’ve had to let a manager go, and eight to 10
staff members go,” Mr Albury told Tribune
Business, adding that “more and more people
are getting laid-off” as Grand Bahama’s econ-
omy slowed.

While companies such as the Freeport Con-
tainer Port, Grand Bahama Shipyard, former
BORCO oil refinery (Now Vopak Terminal
Bahamas) and Bradford Marine were still
seemingly doing well, Mr Albury said this had
not been enough to pick up the slack caused by

Insurance can be the ‘third and
strongest pillar’ for the Bahamas

@ By NEIL HARTNELL
Tribune Business Editor

Insurance “can be the third
and strongest pillar” of the
Bahamian economy if this
nation was to re-establish itself
as a captive insurance domicile,
a leading executive said yester-
day, as the sector was relatively
immune to the current “wild
fluctuations” in the global econ-

“omy.

Guilden Gilbert, a partner in
Chandler Gilbert Insurance
Associates and former Bahamas
Insurance Brokers and Agents
(BIBA) president, said that
even in the toughest economic
times major companies and
individuals still needed to pur-
chase insurance.

This, he explained, would
ensure the sector would not be
impacted as heavily as tourism
and the Bahamas’ traditional

offshore banking model by

events such as the current glob-
al credit/liquidity crunch and
US economic downturn.

“During an economic down-
turn, companies tend to buy
more insurance, especially pro-
fessional liability and directors’
indemnity insurance, because
in a market downturn that’s typ-
ically when you get more share-
holder lawsuits,” Mr Gilbert
explained, adding that “the
Bahamas would be well-served”
if it re-established itself as a
niche captive and internation-
al insurance jurisdiction.

To do so, Mr Gilbert said the
Bahamas would have to send

Power firm subsidies set
a ‘dangerous precedent’



@ By NEIL HARTNELL
Tribune Business Editor

The Government’s decision to
effectively subsidise the fuel bills
for Grand Bahama Power Com-
pany and the Bahamas Electrici-
ty Corporation (BEC) “sets a
dangerous precedent”, several
businessmen have warned, as it
potentially opens the floodgates
for other industries and private
individuals to demand similar
treatment.

Rick Lowe, a senior figure with
the Nassau Institute think-tank
and operations manager for Nas-
sau Motor Company, questioned
whether the Government would
need to increase taxes or take
away from much-needed spend-
ing in other areas to finance the
power company subsidies.

“It’s unfortunate that the Gov-

al insurance industry that it was
open for business, and strength-
en its regulatory infrastructure.

“The first thing to do is get
interest in the market,” Mr
Gilbert told Tribune Business.
“To do that, you could issue a
statement from the Minister of
Finance in an international
insurance publication, such as
Business Insurance, one of the
most read insurance publica-
tions, that the Bahamas wants
to re-establish itself as a cap-
tive domicile. There would at
least be some interest, some
feelers would be put out and
that in itself would trigger some
inquiries.

“Then, questions will arise;
who is the regulator? What
experience do they have? The
Bahamas may have to look at

for a better life

who fulfills the role of regulator,
but ultimately everyone bene-
fits.”

If the Bahamas wanted to
establish itself as a serious inter-
national insurance player, Mr
Gilbert said it would need a
well-known figure in the market
who was respected by all par-
ticipants to regulate the captive
business. Initially, that person
was likely to come from outside
the Bahamas.

“Maybe we need one Regis-
trar to handle the domestic side
and one that handles the inter-
national side,” Mr Gilbert
added.

The Supreme Court has
approved an application by the

liquidator of a Bahamas-based

broker/dealer, whose principal
is currently serving a US jail
sentence for money laundering,
to pay his costs using - in part -
client assets that the firm held in
trust, the judge finding it would
be “inequitable and completely
unrealistic” for him to be left
“empty-handed”. ‘

Senior Justice John Lyons, in
an October 6, 2008, written
judgment on the application by
BDO Mann Judd accountant,
Clifford Culmer, relating to
costs incurred in the liquidation
of Martin Tremblay’s firm,
Dominion Investments (Nas-
sau), said it would not be fair
to leave liquidators out-of-pock-
et if company assets proved
insufficient to cover their costs.

The verdict sets something of
a legal precedent, as it estab-
lishes that in cases were client
assets are held on trust and
clearly segregated, they can be
used to help fund a liquidator’s
costs if the company’s own
assets are insufficient... The
Companies Act and winding-

_up provisions are slient on the

issue.

The judgment recorded that
some 95.5 per cent of Dominion
Investments (Nassau) assets,
which were spread between the
Bahamas, the US and Canada,
were assets that the company
held on trust for its clients, but
did not own itself.

Of the Bahamas assets, some
85.4 per cent or $3.879 million
were held on trust, with
$662,673 or 14.6 per cent
belonging to Dominion.

When it came to the Canadi-

" an assets, some 99.99 per cent or

enior Justice John Lyons

$10.154 million were client

assets held on trust on their.

behalf, and .01 per cent or $849
belonging to Dominion.

As a result, the assets belong-
ing to Dominion were clearly
nowhere near enough to cover
Mr Culmer’s liquidation costs,
and he proposed that this be
funded in proportion to the per-
centage of total assets account-
ed for by the clients and Mr
Tremblay’s firm respectively.
He then sought Supreme Court
permission for this.

outlined, was probably what
will saves the tourism industry
during these economic times.

However, Mr Sands stressed
that there was a need for mar-
ket diversification. ‘““We have
to find ways to increase our
presence in those other mar-
kets where our competitors
have been able to see some
growth in those areas.”

He said the Ministry also
has to address the issue of
charter opportunities for some
regions that show a propensi-
ty to travel.

Mr Sands said that if
tourism needed to grow,
hotels with a gaming compo-
nent need to be allowed to
come out of the ‘dark ages’.

“We need to be allowed to

-bring in new games as request-

ed by the market, and revamp
procedures. We cannot be

expected to be competitive if
these regulations remain,” Mr
Sands said. '

He said it was time for the
Goveinment to seriously con-
sider opening up the gambling
restrictions for permanent res-
idents and persons with work
permits, as well as moneyed
Bahamians who can prove a
certain income level.

While Mr Sands said some
may consider that controver-
sial, he added that tough times
require tough measures.

He said that if the industry
was to truly grow, a way has to
be found to address local
labour within the sector so
that it becomes productive,
cost effective and efficient.

Additionally Mr Sands said
the Government and private
sector must find.a way-to-deal
with energy costs, which are
a cash drain and frustrate cap-
ital investment.

He said that what keeps
persons coming back to a des-
tination is the injection of
flavour, which comes from
new properties and facilities
being built.

Noting the Ministry’s desire
to ensure that guests venture
off property, rather than
spend all their time at a resort,
Mr Sands said Baha Mar
would promote tours and
activities, such as the proposed
James Bond Tour and the
Cemetery tour.

However, he said that if
hoteliers are to promote those
events, there must be an
acceptable level of service.

policies represent a “holistic”
approach to tourism that is
greatly needed, and very real-
istic and reflective of what is

Speaking for the Sandals
Royal Bahamian resort, Bob
Keesler, general manager, said
they would welcome any
activity that will ultimately
create more awareness and
increase the number of visi-
tors.

“In addition to this nation's
natural charm and beauty, we
strongly believe that’ its close
proximity to the US is a very
important factor,” Mr Keesler
said.

“Coupled with our Sandals
Luxury-Included offering, this
presents us as a great vacation
option for those visitors who
want to get away but are
maybe considering something
closer to home. Our forecast-
ed arrivals for the remainder
of the year reflect this, and we ~
are very positive for the

Sandals has been focusing

Proximity still top tourist advantage

@ By CARA BRENNEN-
BETHEL
Tribune Business
‘Reporter

The Bahamas’ close prox-
imity to the US remains its
greatest asset and must still
be exploited to drive the
tourism industry before look-
ing further afield to target
long-haul destinations, the
minister of tourism said.

Although challenging eco-
nomic times have mandated
that his Ministry target wider
markets such as China, Russia
and India, as well as the west-
ern US and Canada, Vincent
Vanderpool Wallace said they
were still aggressively target-
ing their number one client
market- the Eastern US.

Mr Vanderpool-Wallace
said the Ministry had found
that in times when the US
economy was in trouble, the
Bahamas benefits because
persons who wish to travel can
only afford to go to destina-
tions that are very close, mak-

the continued Royal Oasis closure and hotel sector downturn.
He added that many Freeport hotel workers were working as
little as one day per week, with occupancy at the Sheraton and
Westin Our Lucaya as low as 20 per cent or worse.
Mr Albury was backed up by Christopher Lowe, the former
Grand Bahama Chamber of Commerce president, who
described the Freeport and Grand Bahama economy as “dis-

mal”.

“T am very concerned about it, to put it mildly,” Mr Lowe said.
“But unfortunately it doesn’t appear that the Government is
very capable of doing anything about it.

“Straightening out the Port Authority situation would be
helpful, but it’s a bit late. It will have a long-term effect, but for
the short-term it’s not going to get better.

“Some hands-off from government would help, but other
than that, what can I say? It sure needs a new approach. The
country needs a new approach to its very existence.”

Mr Lowe, who is operations manager at Kelly’s (Freeport),
said his: company was enduring “very flat sales”

ing this country an ideal
choice.

Alternatively, he said that
when the US economy is
doing well, persons can and
do choose to go further afield,
but added that at the same
time, when times are more
prosperous, the Bahamas still
benefits because persons who
previously were unable to
travel may now have the dis-
posable income to make trips,
again choosing destinations
closer to home.

As part of its revitalistation
plans and to drive home its

pool-Wallace said the Ministry
is about to launch a new cam-

announced that the Ministry
had decided to return to the
“It’s better in the Bahamas”
slogan, which is to feature
prominently on
www.bahamas.com.

“ This comes on the heels
of what some critics said was
a less than stellar
‘bahamavention’ campaign
and ‘It’s hip to hop to the
Bahamas’.

Mr Vanderpool-Wallace
said the Ministry will be refo-
cusing its budget to ensure
that its dollars are spent as
effectively as possible.

While he said that some ini-
tiatives have had to be
scrapped, the overall hope is

to have a more efficient Min-
istry. This will include a
remarketing of the ‘Islands of
the Bahamas’ as a region with
multiple destinations, rather
than lumping them all togeth-
er.

This will enable them to
focus on the unique charac-
teristics of each island.

Additionally, the Ministry
proposes that the immigration
cards be put on line for visitors
to fill out at their leisure PTE
to their trip.

Mr Vanderpool- -Wallace
said this will reduce the pro-
cessing time at the airport as
well as the Government’s
paper expense.

Lyons noted that liquidation

costs were usually paid out of

the company’s assets according
to Section 241 of the Compa-
nies Act, with investors in a
financial services company sim-
ply treated as creditors if the
firm held all the assets. They
then shared the liquidation costs
equally.

However, Mr Culmer had
concluded that most of Domin-
ion’s assets did not belong to
the company but were held on
trust for clients, who beneficiall
owned them. As a result, the
liquidator needed court
approval to apply them towards
his payment costs.

While no formal trust deed
existed between Dominion and
its clients, there was nothing in
the company’s records to indi-
cate that clients had conferred
beneficial ownership on the
company. And the way it oper-
ated, with clients as the benefi-
cial owners of accounts and
companies opened for them,
showed “Dominion clearly
intended to hold the funds and
securities in trust”.

“From the material before
me, there is clear differentia-
tion between any of its assets
and the assets of its specific
investors, both as between
Dominion and its investor and
each investor to each other,”
Justice Lyons wrote.

Nor was Dominion a bank,
meaning that the legal princi-
ples applying to banks that held

customer money and property
did not apply in this matter.

With Mr Culmer’s contention
that Dominion held client assets
in trust now established, Justice
Lyons said he had been able to
establish each investor’s bene-
ficial entitlement.

If investor assets had been
co-mingled, a different outcome
may have followed, but the
judge said the only question to
be answered was, in these cir-
cumstances, where the liquida-
tor could turn for payment of
his costs if the company’s assets
were insufficient to cover them.

Justice Lyons said there was
no provision in the Companies
Act.or winding-up rules for pay-
ing liquidator costs other than
out of firm assets, and these
provisions did not déal. with
property held on trust.

“No one expects a man to
labour for nothing or next to
nothing,” Justice Lyons wrote.
“Where the assets available to
pay the liquidator are not com-
pany assets but trust assets then,
on a strict legal interpretation of
the Companies Act, the liq-
uidator would not be paid. This
is hardly equitable.......

Given that Dominion’s liqui-
dation was “not without its con-
troversy and complications”,
and that Mr Culmer had to suc-
cessfully overcome a Canadian
freeze order on some 69.1 per
cent of its assets, Justice Lyons
said: “This was not a ‘garden
variety liquidation’. In my judg-
ment, the majority of the liq-
uidator’s costs have been
incurred in connection with his

successful efforts in gathering
and identifying all the assets of
Dominion, the majority of
which are trust assets.”

With financial services
providers increasingly holding
assets on trust for clients, and
“an increase in recent years in
the number” of such companies
going into liquidation where
their own assets are insufficient
to cover costs, Justice Lyons
said: “Liquidators seldom
realise what they are getting
into until they are actually
involved in the winding-up
operation.

“It is only then that the liq-
uidator, having carried out con-
siderable investigative work, is
able then to determine what the
company assets are and what
the trust assets are.

“It would be both inequitable
and completely unrealistic if
courts were to appoint liquida-
tors, asking them to carry out
their task ‘blind’ as it were and
then, having done so, and
incurred considerable costs,
leave the liquidator empty
handed because the assets of

the company were insufficient.”

Justice Lyons said that if
courts did so, no liquidators

would wish to handle the com-

plex liquidations that came
before them, while investors
could “not fairly expect a liq-
uidator who has done a tremen-
dous amount of work to identi-
fy; isolate and retrieve their
assets to walk away empty
handed and not be paid for his
endeavours”.

General liquidation costs
were $911,574; the Bahamas
costs were $360,414; and the
Canadian costs $603,910.
Another $59,000 in costs was
also incurred.

Stocks plunge again
following late sell-oft

@ By TIM PARADIS
AP Business Writer
NEW YORK

Stocks plunged Thursday,
sending the Dow Jones industrial
average down 679 points — more
than 7 percent — to its lowest
level in five years. Stocks took a
nosedive after a major credit-rat-
ing agency said it might cut its
rating on General Motors and
Ford, further rattling investors
already fretting over the impact of
tight credit on the economy.

The Standard & Poor's 500
index also fell more than 7 per-
cent.

The declines came on the one-
year anniversary of the closing
highs of the Dow and the S&P.
The Dow has lost 5,585 points,
or 39.4 percent, since closing at
14,164.53 on Oct. 9, 2007. It's the
worst run for the Dow since the
nearly two-year bear market that
ended in December 1974 when
the Dow lost 45 percent. The
S&P 500, meanwhile, is off 655
points, or 41.9 percent, since
recording its high of 1,565.15.

U.S. stock market paper losses
totaled $872 billion Thursday and
the value of shares over all has
tumbled a stunning $8.33 trillion
since last year's high. That's based
on figures measured by the Dow
Jones Wilshire 5000 Composite
Index, which tracks 5,000 U.S.-
based companies' stocks and rep-
resents almost all stocks traded
in America. Thursday's sell-off
came as Standard & Poor's Rat-
ings Services put General Motors
Corp. and its finance affiliate
GMAC LLC under review to see
if its rating should be cut. The
action means there is a 50 per-
cent chance that S&P will lower
GM's and GMAC's ratings in the
next three months. GM has been
struggling with weak car sales ip
North America.

S&P also put Ford Motor Co.
on credit watch negative. The rat-
ings agency said that GM and
Ford have adequate liquidity
now, but that could change in
2009.

GM, one of the 30 stocks that
make up the Dow industrials, fell
$2.15, or 31 percent, to $4.76,
while Ford fell 58 cents, or 22 per-
cent, to $2.08.

"The story is getting to be like
that movie 'Groundhog Day,*"

1805

said Arthur Hogan, chief market
analyst at Jefferies & Co. He
pointed to the still-frozen credit
markets, and Libor, the bank-to-
bank lending rate that remains
stubbornly high despite interest
rate cuts this week by the Feder-
al Reserve and other major cen-
tral banks.

"Until that starts coming down,
you'll be hard-pressed to find any-
one getting excited about stocks,"
Hogan said. "Everything we're
seeing is historic. The problem is
historic, the solutions are historic,
and unfortunately, the sell-off is
historic. It's not the kind of his-
tory you want to be making."

The Dow ended the day at its

lows, finishing down 678.91, or
7.3 percent, at 8,579.19. The blue
chips hadn't closed below the
9,000 level since the June 30,
2003.The Dow's tumble in the last
seven sessions is its steepest ever
in terms of points and the worst
percentage decline since a down-
turn ending Oct. 26, 1987, when
the Dow lost 23.8 percent. That
sell-off included Black Monday,
the Oct. 19, 1987 market crash
that saw the Dow fall nearly 23
percent in a single day.
- Broader stock indicators also
tumbled Thursday. The S&P 500
fell 75.02, or 7.6 percent, to
909.92, while the Nasdaq com-
posite index fell 95.21, or 5.5 pgr-
cent, 'to 1,645.12.

The Russell 2000 index of
smaller companies fell 47.37, or
8.7 percent, to 499.20.

A wave of fear about the econ-
omy sent stocks lower in the final
two hours of trading after a
volatile morning in which major
indicators like the Dow and the
S&P 500 index bobbed up and
down. The Nasdaq, with a bevy of
tech stocks, spent much of the
session higher but eventually
declined as the sell-off intensi-
fied. Still, its losses were less
severe because of the relatively
modest drops in names like Intel
Corp. and Microsoft Corp.

On the New York Stock
Exchange, declining issues came
to nearly 3,000, while fewer than
250 advanced.

The sluggishness in the credit
markets that triggered much of
the heavy selling in markets
around the world since mid-Sep-
tember appeared little changed
Thursday following days of efforts
by the Federal Reserve and other

28 PICTET

central banks to resuscitate lend-
ing.

Libor, the bank lending bench-
mark, for three-month dollar
loans rose to 4.75 percent from
4.52 percent on Wednesday. That
signals that banks remain hesi-
tant to make loans for fear they
won't be paid back.

The Fed and other leading cen-
tral banks this week lowered key
interest rates to help unclog the
credit markets and promote lend-
ing to help the global economy.
While a rate cut can take up toa
year to work its way through the
economy, the move was aimed as
a boost to investor sentiment.

"We're stuck in a morass and I
think it's going to take quite some
time to come out of it," said
Stephen Carl, principal and head
of equity trading at The Williams
Capital Group.

Demand remained high for
short-term Treasurys, a refuge for

‘investors willing to trade modest

returns to protect their money.
The yield on the three-month
Treasury bill, which moves oppo-
site its price, fell to 0.51 percent
from 0.63 percent late Wednes-
day. Longer-term debt prices fell,
with the yield on the 10-year note
rising to 3.79 percent from 3.65
percent late Wednesday.

Investors across markets were
mulling a plan being considered
by the Bush administration to
invest in hobbled U.S. banks as a
way to stabilize the financial sec-
tor. The $700 billion rescue pack-
age signed into law last week
allows the Treasury Department
to inject fresh capital into finan-
cial institutions and obtain own-
ership shares in return.

Britain rolled out a similar
plan, though no U.K. bank has
received any investments. In Ice-
land, the government now has
control of the country's three
major banks as it struggles to con-
tain the troubles there.

Wall Street is also looking for
any effects of short selling now
that a three-week ban imposed
by regulators has expired. Short
selling is a technique in which
investors borrow shares in a com-
pany from a broker and sell them,
hoping to buy them back later at
a lower price. Essentially, it's a
bet that a stock's price will fall.
Short sellers can lose money if
they have to repurchase the stock
after it has risen.

tives that insured particular
risks for the Fortune 1000 com-
panies, as Bermuda had done,
Mr Gilbert suggested that the
Bahamas go after business from
companies just below that, who
generated $100-$200 million in
revenues per year.

Those companies were look-
ing for “alternative ways to con-
tain premium costs”, and Mr
Gilbert said: “That would be an
ideal market for the Bahamas,
as the opportunities there are
greater because they can cap-
ture a much greater percentage
of the market than just by focus-
ing on Fortune 1000 compa-
nies.”

Mr Gilbert described
Freeport as an “ideal” location
for a Bahamian captive and
international insurance indus-
try, given its proximity to the

US, existing infrastructure and
ability to accommodate a much
larger population than it did
currently.

Turning to the potential eco-
nomic benefits a captive insur-
ance industry could bring to the
Bahamas, Mr Gilbert said it
would support the accounting,
hotel, legal, office space and
rental markets directly - and just

about any duty in this
nation.

“The trickle down effect is
enormous,” Mr Gilbert told Tri-
bune Business.

“In Carolina, they created
captive legislation six to seven
years ago, and in the first two to
three years some extra $300 mil-
lion in revenue was injected into
the local economy.”

THE TRIBUNE

FRIDAY, OCTOBER 10, 2008, PAGE 7B



Power firm subsidies set a ‘dangerous precedent’.

FROM page 1B

ernment has chosen to do that,”
Mr Lowe told Tribune Business.
“For them to start subsidising one
particular private entity, it sets a
dangerous precedent.

“We're all suffering. What
industry is next?

“Our industry is suffering.
We're all vital assets in one way
or another. Who’s the great
decider?

“You go to the Government

with your hand out and they say :

you're not worthy.

“But how do they decide
whose worthy [of receiving a sub-
sidy] and who isn’t? If a power
plant or private company is wor-
thy, then everyone else is.”

Mr Lowe added that the Gov-
ernment subsidies would “distort
the market mechanism, so to
speak”, and raised the prospect
that it would have to re-allocate
money and taxes from elsewhere
to cover the power company
funding.

“The Government does not
have anything to give unless it
takes it from someone else,” he
added.

He was supported by his name-

_ sake Christopher Lowe, the for-

mer Grand Bahama Chamber of
Commerce president, who said
that while the Government sub-
sidising BEC could arguably be
justified because it 100 per cent
owned the Corporation, it had

extended this to supporting a pri-
vate company. “It’s one thing to
subsidise it through BEC, but
now it’s subsidising it through
Grand Bahama Power Compa-

ny, which is a private company,”

Chris Lowe added.

He said the change of policy in |

New Providence, from one where
BEC customers were cut off for
failing to pay their bills in full,
would merely encourage con-
sumers to make only partial pay-
ments, thus running up significant
arrears and BEC’s accounts
receivables.
Both Messrs Lowe run the risk
of being criticised for insensitivi-
ty towards the plight of ordinary,
poor Bahamians who have been
unable to meet their electricity
bills as a result of soaririg oil costs
that have been passed on to con-
sumers by the power companies
in the form of the fuel surcharge.
Government subsidies now

‘seem to be increasingly the, norm

as a result of the global liquidi-

‘ty/credit crunch in the global

financial system, with government
in the US, UK, Iceland and
Europe nationalising and provid-
ing multi-billion dollar subsidies
to financial institutions to prevent

their collapse and a systemic mielt--

down.

Yet in the Bahaniian context,
the Government is effectively
part-paying the fuel bill for Grand
Bahama Power Company, an

entity that is 80 per cént owned .

by two leading power conglom-

erates - the Japanese company,
Marubeni, which holds 55 per
cent, and the Canadian entity,
Emera, which owns the balance.
The company also recently
paid a dividend to its sharehold-
ers, indicating its financial posi-
tion is sound. , '
With Bahamians increasingly
being hit. by soaring energy and
food costs, combined with rising
job losses, reduced work hours
and a reduction in incomes result-
ing from the global economic
downturn, the Government prob-
ably felt it had no choice but to do
something to alleviate the impact
- and ensure it did not lose votes.
Prime Minister Hubert Ingra-
ham said BEC had disconnected
some 5,000 residential customers
for non-payment of bills, with the
“vast majority” of accounts in
arrears being behind by $1,000 Or
less. ‘
As a result, the Government
moved to cap BEC’s fuel sur-

charge at $0.15 per kilowatt hour
for residential customers whose
monthly consumption is less than
800 kilowatts per hour.

This will last from October 1,
2008, to December 31, 2008, and
the same will be done for Grand
Bahama Power Company cus-
tomers who also use 800 kilowatts
per month or less.

This has entailed a government
subsidy totalling $5.5 million -
some $4 million to BEC, which
it has to repay over two years,
and $1.5 million to Grand

Bahama Power Company.

The Government has directed

BEC to restore power to all cus- ©
tomers who had their electricity

disconnected for failing to pay
their bills in full, while the Cor-
poration has been ordered to
reverse its requirement that all
arrears are paid before recon-
nection.

Previously, only 50 per cent of
arrears had to be paid.

Mr Johnson said BTC had

invested $42 million in its GSM
upgrade and TDMA conver-
sion, that being split into a $22
million investment in the Fam-
ily Islands, with the $20 million
balance going on New Provi-
dence, Grand Bahama and
Abaco.
' “This is to ensure we have
the coverage and capacity to
not only take those customers
over to TDMA, but improve
the quality of service through-
out the Bahamas,” Mr Johnson
said. “TDMA customers will
get that improved footprint.and
capacity when they make that
transition.”

Yet the fact that BTC is
spending more on the GSM
upgrade in the Family Islands,
as opposed to the more densely

populated islands, shows one
dilemma its privatisation part-
ner. will have to address - the
difficulty in getting a return on
capital investment in the sparse-
ly populated southern islands.

Mr Johnson said BTC initial-
ly had about 100,000 TDMA
and 200,000 GSM customers
when the transition began, but
“as of yesterday” only 48,000
TDMA customers remained
active.

Of these, there were some
34,000 pre-paid and 14,000 post-
paid TDMA users, but Mr
Johnson said the number for
those still to make the GSM
switch was like to be smaller
than those figures because a
number of people were “dual
users”- using both TDMA and
GSM phones.

“As of now, we are on tar-
get. It’s been quite as task and
we're going at a fair clip,” Mr

Johnson said of the GSM con-
version. “We’re getting ready
to do our first TDMA turn-off
on Exuma and Long Island on
October 14, and hopefully by
the end of this month we’ll have
turned down all sites.”

BTC is phasing out TDMA
pre-paid customer numbers
beginning with the prefixes ‘395’
and 423’ this week, with the
‘552’ and ‘558’ prefixes turned
off at the end of next week.

Mr Johnson said that BTC
would have invested close to $1
million in marketing dollars into
the GSM conversion “when all
is said and done”, as it was giv-
ing away SIM cards - which nor-
mally-cost $15 per customer -
for free. Staff overtime pay-
ments also entered the equa-
tion, with BTC keeping its wire-
less and Cyber World outlets
open until 8pm, as did public
education and awareness cam-

paigns. The BTC executive said
the decision to discontinue the
TDMA network was effectively
made for the company, as the
system’s technology was no
longer being manufactured.

“It is quickly becoming obso-
lete,” Mr Johnson said.

“We decided to base the plat-
form for the time being on
GSM, which is widely utilised
all over the world, with well
over two billion customers.

Wherever you travel, you’re .

bound to find a GSM network.
Technology has moved on and
we have to make sure our cus-
tomers are in line with global
best practices.”

Mr Johnson said his only con-
cern was that TDMA clients
might wait until the last minute
to switch over, and as a result
the conversion might be
delayed and they could lose
phone service.

Tourism minister
is lead speaker at
Business Outlook

Vincent Vanderpool-Wal-
lace, the minister of tourism,
will be the lead speaker at the
third annual Exuma Business
Outlook conference on Thurs-
day, October 23.

The event will be held at the
Four Seasons Hotel under the
theme The Reality, The Vision,
The New Directions.

Reginald Smith, the
Bahamas Chamber of Com-
merce’s president, said: “Exu-
ma is currently in the dol-

‘drums.

“The highlights are devel-
opment projects that are cur-
rently in progress at Roker’s
Point and Crab Cay.

“However, the Four Sea-
sons Resort has been in
receivership for more than a
year and we have not made
headway with a buyer.
Tourism has slowed signifi-
cantly, real estate sales are
down and the cost of living
continues to escalate.

“During rough times like
these we need to dig down
deep and find new paths to
success. We need to develop a
vision and plan that will revi-
talise Exuma so it will become
a leading destination.”

Conference organiser Joan
Albury, president of The
Counsellors, said Exuma has
not been living up to its full
economic potential.

“Despite the incredible
beauty of the island and its
surrounding waters, and the
fruition of anchor projects
such as the Four Seasons, the
people of Exuma have yet to
develop and reap the full ben-
efits of linkages with the
tourism sector, particularly
through entrepreneurship,”
she said. And: now that the

“Exuma is currently in the
doldrums. The highlights are

currently in progress at
Roker’s Point and Crab Cay.”



Bahamas has begun to feel the
impact of the global financial
crisis, it is especially impor-
tant that we discuss and
understand Exuma’s econom-
ic reality and that Exumians
develop a vision for the island.
This may require doing some
things we’ve never done

some things we’ve done
