Pasi Cola Bahamas
is shutting down

75 local
employees |.
will lose
their jobs

@ By KARIN HERIG

$

A MAJOR international com-
pany has announced that it is
shutting down its operations in
the Bahamas and letting 75 local
employees go.

Pepsi-Cola Bahamas yester-
day said it is closing the company
due to “ongoing profitability chal-
lenges.”

The company yesterday noti-
fied the Ministry of Labour that
effective from November 14, the

company will cease manufactur- .

ing operations and on December
5 it will close its sales and distrib-
ution operations in the Bahamas.

Rick Wooten, senior vice-pres-
ident of Caribbean operations for
PepsiAmericas, said in a state-
ment that the decision to cease
production and sales in the
Bahamas was not a reflection of
the quality or service provided by
the employees there, but instead,
that the overall business lacks
scale to support continuation of
local manufacturing.

Despite continued investments
in both physical and human capi-
tal, the business has not met
expectations for profitability, the
company said.

“Probably the most difficult
decision a company can make is
to close an operation,” Mr
Wooten said.

“We understand the impact
such a decision has on employ-
ees and on the island of the
Bahamas, and we’re committed
to providing severance assistance
to help those individuals as they
find alternate employment.”

Te INAUGURAL wedding at the Wyndham Nassau Resort's new boardwalk gazebo.

@ By CHESTER ROBARDS
Tribune Staff Reporter

AMIDST an economic downturn and low occu-
pancy rates, Bahamar and Wyndham are contin-
uing their improvement and expansions plans.

Speaking with The Tribune yesterday, Robert
Sands, Senior’ Vice President of Administration
and External Affairs for Bahamar, said though
there have been cuts in this increasingly stagnat-
ing market, they are moving forward with devel-
opments that will be financially viable in the very

near future.

“Being visionaries we have to find those nich-

es to grow sales,” he said.

“Focusing on niche marketing, a market that is
growing, we felt like we were deficient in having
the right type of facilities to adequately cater to it,

MINISTER of National
Security Tommy Turnquest
said he is concerned with the
number of persons accused of
serious offences out on bail and
the backlog in the court sys-
tem.

The constitution of the
Bahamas stipulates that a per-
son charged with a crime must
have their day in court in a rea-
sonable period of time.

Mr Turnquest acknowl-

edged a Supreme Court deci-



hence this investment and this initiative here.”

Two held i in
connection
with murder
of woman

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

POLICE have two men in
custody in connection with the
brutal murder of Sheanda
Lewis, whose body was found
in bushes off Charles Saunders
Highway last week.

Although police are “still
working to put the pieces
together” they say they are fol-
lowing significant leads.

“We are seeing some very
positive and encouraging signs.
However, while we have been
questioning several persons, we
are not at the point yet to place
anyone before the courts,” Act-
ing Assistant Commissioner
Hulan Hanna said.

Man charged
with murder

@ By DENISE MAYCOCK
Tribune Freeport Reporter

On Saturday, the body of
Lewis, a 19-year-old resident of
Blue Hill Road, was found clad
only in red underwear. Her
throat appeared to have been
slit. Police said there were signs
that she struggled with her
killer.

A motive has yet to be estab-
lished, Chief Supt Glenn Miller
told The Tribune yesterday. |

Police have also said it was
too early to tell if there was any
sexual trauma to the victim,
although the circumstances sur-
rounding her death indicate
there may have been.

_ CSP Miller said one man is in
custody and another was picked
up yesterday.

Both are helping police in
their investigations.

Workers pushed themselves to complete a 500
ft boardwalk behind the Wyndham resort to host
a wedding in a grand gazebo, 30ft in diameter,
which anchors the east end of the new addition.

The wedding party comprised 40 cruise ship
passengers and took place around 1.30 pm yes-
terday.

When the boardwalk is completed sometime in
the next two weeks the western side of the resort
will house a daiquiri stand and improvements
will begin to the resort’s pools and restaurants,
said Food and Beverage and Entertainment Man-
ager.Mark Hawken.

Guests can look forward to a bandstand tow-
ering above the pool in the rocks adjacent to the

FREEPORT - A Nassau man was charged
with murder in the Freeport Magistrate’s Court on Friday in connec-
tion with the shooting at the Pepper Pot Restaurant.

Kema Anton Moss, 29, of Wilson Tract, New Providence, ‘appeared
before Deputy Chief Magistrate Helen Jones in Court 2, where he was
charged with the murder of 23-year-old Joseph Andrecko Cooper of
Coral Gardens.

It is alleged that on October 4, the accused intentionally caused
the death of Cooper by means of unlawful harm.

Moss was not required to enter a plea to murder. He was not rep-
resented by counsel.

Magistrate, Jones adjourned the matter to March 11, 2009, for pre-
liminary inquiry. Moss was denied bail and remanded to Her Majesty’s
Prison, Fox Hill.

FREEPORT — Ministry of

Education officials in Freeport

are trying to quickly resolve

major health issues at the Eight

Mile Rock High School, tem-

porarily closed for more than

week.

Over 800 students, teachers,
and. administration staff were
sent home last Tuesday after
almost half of the 40 classrooms
were declared unsafe and unfit
for occupation for various
health reasons.

School Superintendent
Hezekiah Dean, Eight Mile
Rock Principal Benjamin
Stubbs, and members of the
Parents Teachers Association
at Eight Mile Rock were at the
school on Friday to further

assess the situation, and to
determine a suitable rotation
schedule for the return of stu-
dents and teachers at the school.

Troy Garvey, PTA president,
said 18 classrooms, including
the Nutrition and Home Eco-
nomics classes, have been iden-
tified as a health risk because
of the serious rodent, bat, and
pigeon infestation problems
there.

He said that the unpleasant
odour and fecal droppings in
the classrooms were making
students and teachers sick.

In addition to the infestation
problem, Mr Dean said that
major sewage back-ups and
plumbing problems exist at the
school.

“We have contracted three
companies who are now work-
ing to correct these problems,

Man shot in night-time robbery of car wash

i By TANEKA THOMPSON

POLICE are investigating the
night-time robbery of a car-wash
which left a man nursing a gun-
shot wound and several gunmen
on the loose. LN

Assistant Commissioner Hulan
Hanna said that around 8.20 pm
on Thursday, Algernon Turnquest
was at a car wash on Talberth
Street when he was approached
by two o: three men.

“The men reportedly: demanded
cash from Mr Turnquest and in
the process of the robbery he was

shot in the right leg.

Mr Hanna said the victim was _ :
taken to hospital where his condi-
tion is listed as serious but not life-

threatening.

Police also reported that earlier i
in the evening, around 6pm, an :

employee of an establishment on ;

East Bay Street buzzed the door,
allowing an unknown person
entry.

demanded money.

The culprit was able to escape

with cash and a camera.

Police have not made any
arrests, but investigations continue. :

in food crisis, Cuba limits sales so all can eat

i HAVANA



CUBA is limiting how much basic fruits and vegetables people can_;
buy at farmers’ markéts; irritating some customers but ensuring” :
there’s enough — barely — to go around, according to Associated }
Press. ;
The lines are long and some foods are scarce, but because the ;
government has maintained and even increased rations in some :
areas, Cubans who initially worried about getting enough to eat now }
seem confident they won’t go hungry despite the destruction of 30 per- :
cent of the island’s crops by hurricanes Gustav and Ike last month. :

“Of the little there is, there is some for everyone,” 65-year-old Mer- :
cedes Grimau said as queued up behind more than 50 people to }
buy lettuce, limited to two pounds per person. ;

“I’m not afraid that I will be left without food, but it’s a pain to :
think about all the work we are going to have to go through,” Grimau
added. “Two or three months ago the farmers markets were well- ;
stocked.” i

Tribune Staff Reporter
pturnquest@tribunemedia.net

CONSIDERING the eco-
nomic conditions facing the '
country, Obie Wilchcombe,
PLP MP for West End and
Bimini, questioned govern-
ment’s judgment in allowing
78 screeners at Lynden Pin-
dling International Airport to
be fired by the end of the
month.

He pointed out that eco-
nomic conditions in the
Bahamas have fallen to such
a deplorable state that a num-
ber of unemployed women in
Grand Bahama have resorted
to dancing at two of the
island’s local strip clubs. Mr
Wilchcombe cried shame on
government for not coming
to the assistance of Bahami-
ans in such difficult times.

“I want one of the FNMs
to tell me tonight why at this
rough time is the government
deciding to enforce the policy
that the PLP allowed to lay
dormant for several years that
requires police domiciled in
Freeport to remove them-
selves and their families into
private dwellings out of the
police facilities. They have
told them that at the end of
the month they have to be
out.

“Where is our love? Where
is our compassion? And
where is our sensitivity?” he
asked.

Mr Wilchcombe added that
in Grand Bahama over 2,000
people have had to resort to
social service assistance, with
families having to take their
children out of private
schools and put them in pub-
lic schools. As a result, he
said, the public school system

“Where is our love? Where is

Obie Wilchcombe, PLP MP for West End



turned away as there is no
more space available.

“Men and. women
employed at the Sheraton
and Lucaya in Grand
Bahama are living lives of
uncertainty. Many are work-
ing only one day, and if you
are lucky, two days, but only
four hours in any of those
days. They have little or noth-
ing to take home. I asked one
lady how is she making it?
And she told me, ‘I am not. I
am not paying any of my
bills’,” he said.

Himself a former Minister
of Tourism, Mr Wilchcombe
said he hoped Tourism Min-
ister Vincent Vanderpool-
Wallace would find a solution
to the “vexing issues” that
hinder the growth and devel-
opment of the tourism indus-
try.

“He is seeking to place the
country back on course with a
plan that envelopes those
things that were there before
Neko Grant came on the
scene — the worst tourism
minister in the history of the
Commonwealth of the
Bahamas. And I want Minis-

Missed opportunities to show some class

5

THE Republicans are right. Character does
count.

But my guess is that the American people
won’t make ultimate judgments on those hop-
ing to lead our country based on where
they’ve attended church or based on horrific
innuendoes about the patriotism and past
crimes of casual acquaintances.

In fact, John McCain’s and Sarah Palin’s
McCarthyite zeal to slime Barack Obama in
that manner may have made them miss gold-
en opportunities that could have paid politi-
cal dividends.

If each of them had slowed things down
and uttered an appropriate rebuke when peo-
ple in the audiences had shouted hateful epi-
thets, it might have provided exactly the kind
of game-changing occurrence they’ve been so
desperately seeking the past two weeks.

Even Obama supporters would have taken
notice, and it would have scored valour
points. Especially, that is, if both Republi-
cans had just had that reaction as an unscript-
ed instinct.

Would that have meant a couple of points

bump in the polls? A tiny blip? No impact at .

all? I don’t know.

But I’m fairly certain that TV pundits
would still be talking about it. At minimum,
it would have countered, and shared airtime
with, endless chatter about polls that show
McCain lost yet another debate, and others
that show his support slipping in once-red
battleground states.

More important, it would have said some-
thing to impressionable Americans about
McCain’s and Palin’s personal decency, char-
acter and mettle. ,

Similar hate speech has been shouted else-
where, including a joint McCain-Palin rally in
Pennsylvania. But so far, the campaign’s only
response is a lame statement that it does not
condone “inappropriate rhetoric which dis-
tracts.”

McCain apparently missed a similar teach-
ing moment last November when someone,
referring to then-Democratic front-runner
Hilary Clinton, asked, “How do we beat the
bitch?”

McCain chuckled and guffawed with the
crowd before saying, as laughter subsided, it
was “an excellent question.” Much later, he
added, “I respect Senator Clinton.”

There were later some expressions of regret
by the campaign or McCain himself. Too bad

that regret did not include a resolve to handle
similar situations differently.

Politicians don’t get it. But American vot-
ers can respond positively to decency, mag-
nanimity and class, even if cable news pundits
and Internet bloggers get more worked up
over crass attacks and mudslinging.

Far be it from me to tell McCain he should-
n’t go for broke in the waning days of this
campaign.

I know he wants to win, and I suspect that
in his sincerest moments of personal reflec-
tion he genuinely feels the country will be
better off if he does.

At 72, McCain, unlike Obama, doesn’t
have the luxury of entertaining fallback
notions about viability in 2012 if things don’t
work out this time.

If the brightest minds on his strategy team
are telling him he has absolutely no way of

winning without demonizing Obama’s tenu-.

ous connections to William Ayers and Rev.
Jeremiah Wright, while also trying to raise
some legitimate doubts about him as well, I

‘guess I understand. Perhaps, I should keep

my criticism of that campaign strategy some-
what muted. .

But where is the old John McCain, who
just months ago, vowed a clean campaign
based on issues and a clear articulation of
his vision for the country?

The old John McCain — the highly princi-
pled one — might have reacted differently to
this week’s ugly incidents.

Anyone. with the audacity, bad manners

. and bad taste to shout epithets might have

heard a stern denunciation. McCain most
certainly would not be stirring up the furore
that encourages such inappropriate over exu-
berance.

The old McCain that people of every polit-
ical stripe once admired might be vetoing
negative ads that pass neither the truth nor
fairness test — not debuting new ones day in
and day out.

The new John McCain may very well over-
come all of his political obstacles and become
the 44th president of the United States. But
the sad irony, I suspect, is that the old John
McCain would now be in a much better posi-
tion.

THE TRIBUNE

Martin Marietta’s
Bahama Rock —

EDITOR, The Tribune.

I FELT a strong need to
write this letter and express my
feelings on paper. I believe that
the residents of Grand Bahama
are still very much unaware of
the damaging effects of Martin
Marietta’s Bahama Rock
(MMBR). Recently Bahama
Rock has hosted two commu-
nity town meetings and in all
honesty I must admit that the
meetings were very disappoint-
ing. The second of the two
meetings was especially disap-
pointing'in that the many ques-
tions and concerns that were
presented to the panelists rep-
resenting Martin Marietta’s
Bahama Rock (MMBR) were
either not adequately answered
or not answered at all!

Presently the residents of
Eight Mile Rock have been
experiencing damage to their
homes. Many of the wells in
which residents were able to
pump fresh water have been
contaminated, the pine forests
which depend on fresh water
to grow are drying up, man-
grove swamps where most of
our marine life depend upon
for proliferation are being
destroyed and finally the
ruinous flooding that we have
experienced are in my opinion
all due to the dredging and
blasting by MMBR. The Envi-
ronmental Impactment Assess-
ment (EIA) is yet to be accessi-
ble to the public after numerous
requests for it. Also, I suggest
that the government should
recruit a neutral group of seis-
mologists and environmental
scientists to assess the possible
damage and potential damage
to homes in Eight Mile Rock
rather than accepting the data
from scientists on the MMBR
pay roll.

It is very surprising to me that
MMBR is seeking approval for
expansion to their next phase
(which is expanding west of the
Warren J Levarity Highway)
when they were contracted to
be in operation for a limited
time. They are presently seek-
ing this approval from the Gov-
ernment and the Grand
Bahama Port Authority and no
representatives from either par-
ty were present at the first
meeting.

Mrs Vernae Grant (MP for
the Eight Mile Rock con-
stituency) is to be congratulated
for her attendance to the 2nd
Bahama Rock meeting and also
the last town meeting which
was held by the Grand Bahama
Committee for Concerned Res-
idents. It was during this meet-
ing that Mrs Grant made a
promise to residents that she
will correspond with the Minis-

ters of Environmental Health

and the Minister of Housing to
ensure that they become aware
of the strong opposition
expressed by the majority of
Eight Mile Rock residents in
regards to the expansion of
Bahama Rock west of the War-
ren J Levarity Highway.

Mr Walter Reed, General
Manager of Bahama Rock has
communicated to the residents
of Grand Bahama over and
repeatedly that the expansion
of MMBR will provide thou-
sands of jobs for Grand
Bahama but we have yet to be
told what type of jobs will be
available and their job descrip-
tions? Moreover, the expected
date these jobs will be avail-
able. This would be more ben-
eficial to us rather than import-
ing hundreds of foreign
employees to do the work, if
the government gives approval
but I am hoping they don’t. A
trait that is typical of most for-
eign investors.

Mr Walter Reed stated in the
MMBR’s first town meeting
that the GBPA has issued a
written statement that they
have no interest in the remain-
ing fresh water lenses in west
Grand Bahama. If anyone read-
ing this article was on the island
of Grand Bahama after hurri-
cane Frances in 2004 you will
recall that there was no power
on the island for weeks and
many of us had to revert to
those old water wells to pump
water because the Grand
Bahama Port Authority. could
not supply water to the island.
Therefore, their alleged state-
ment to Mr Reed that they
have no need for these fresh
water lenses does not mean that
we have no need for them! We
would much rather have it and
not need it, than to need it and
not have it!

Should the government and
the GBPA approve this expan-
sion of MMBR west of the
Warren J Levarity Highway;
the following provisions should
be incorporated as to aid the
many Bahamians who will be
affected by this action.

A dowry should be provided
by MMBR for young Bahami-
ans who are willing to study
Marine Biology and Environ-
mental Sciences so that they
can help prevent further dam-
aging effects. We need the gov-
ernment to make MMBR
accountable for proper dispos-
al of waste products.

The MMBR must also devel-

_op solar powered reverse osmo-

sis plants that will aid in the
restoration of our precious nat-
ural resources such as our fresh
water systems, pine forests and
mangroves.

No less than 15 to 20 per cent
of their earnings should be
going to the government to
invest in two of our most crucial
and unfortunately most neglect-
ed issues, education and health-
care. At a minimum, 15 per
cent of earnings should be
invested into programmes to
help relocate, rebuild and aid
in any health related issue of
the resident within a 25-30 mile
radius deemed to be directly
related to or affected by the
actions of the company. This

proposal will be effective from
the first date of the first action
within the radius with no time
limited or ending period as it
is still uncertain the direct neg-
ative result that will come from
the company’s actions.

We all know that the GBPA
will grant approval of the next
phase of blasting for MMBR
(they receive millions of dol-
lars from MMBR annually);
however, the real question is:
Will our government leaders
grant the approval for this
expansion as well? As it stands,
they have allowed MMBR to
continue blasting and dredging
as usual after a cease and desist
order was issued by the former
government. Dr Marcus Bethel
permitted a brief blasting exer-
cise for investigative purposes
only. Is the investigation com-
plete? Who gave Bahama ‘Rock
permission to continue blasting
and dredging! Moreover, in
these extremely difficult eco-
nomic times; the government
has increased the duty rate
from 35 per cent to 45 per cent
and added duty to items that
previously were duty free. (For
example, baby items and school
supplies). Through my research.
I found information stating
explosives and dynamite are
now duty free. If this is not true
will someone please inform the
public because inquiring minds
want to know. How are they
gaining approval from our gov-
ernment? We have to question
the ethics of all those involved
as history has taught us that
many times in our country
money is the underlining fac-
tor of many for the creation of
our unfortunate circumstances.
Therefore, I sincerely hope this
is not a case of history repeating
itself. How can the government
grant approval knowing the
detrimental affects it will have
on the island and also knowing
that the majority of the resi-
dents in Eight Mile Rock are
in strong opposition to this
expansion?

How will we be able to
answer the people whose
homes were affected by the
blasting and our children and
their children when the ques-
tion is presented to us to how
we were able to sit back pas-
sively and allow their God-giv-
en natural resources to be
destroyed!

We need the Prime Minister,
the Minister of Environmental
Health, the Minister of
Tourism, the Minister of Hous-
ing and the six MPs for Grand
Bahama to meet with the resi-
dents of Granél Bahama and
tell us why they are willing to
aid in the disastrous destruc-
tion of our natural resources in
which there is absolutely no
benefit for the Bahamian peo-
ple. Let’s not forget that these
natural resources are the rea-
son Tourism is our No. | indus-
try. Please do not allow Grand
Bahama, which has the sécond
largest marine nursery system
in the Bahamas, to end up like
Bimini Bay or Exuma that can
no longer go and fish for snap-
pers and get fresh water out of
their back yards but now have
to purchase it!

senior PLP Member of Par-

during his address to the par-

are now coming into a market
with reduced employment
opportunities, the news may
not be all bad for the soon-to-
be former Pepsi-Cola workers.

Walter Wells, head of
Caribbean Bottling —- which
holds the local franchise for
Coca-Cola — said that his com-
pany is willing to absorb as
many of the 75 persons as pos-
sible.

Mr Wells said he is more
than happy to help out the for-
mer Pepsi-Cola employees by
offering them jobs at his com-

pany. seat

Although Pepsi-Cola is
ceasing its production opera-
tions in the Bahamas, the com-
pany will continue to service
Pepsi customers using a local
distributor to deliver, sell and
service its customers.

The closure of this major
beverage production company
follows just month’s after the
country’s largest liquor pro-
ducer, Bacardi and Company,
announced its plans to pull out
of the Bahamas.

In August of this year, Bac-
ardi announced that it will
move its Bahamian operations
to Puerto Rico by 2009.

Some 114 Bahamians at
Bacardi were affected by this
decision.

Pepsi-Cola Bahamas is a
majority-owned subsidiary of
PepsiAmericas, which is the
second-largest Pepsi bottler
with operations in 19 states,
’ Central and Eastern Europe,
including Ukraine, Romania,
Poland, Hungary, the Czech
Republic, and Republic of Slo-
vakia, and the Caribbean.

Said Minister Turnquest: "We're still
very concerned at the delays at getting
these persons to trial and there's no

blame to be put on any one agency, so we _

all have to take responsibility for it and as
a government we have to ensure that it
happens. We are also concerned about
the number of persons who have com-
mitted serious offences who are out on
bail.

: "We've determined, or the Supreme

Court has determined, that amending
the bail act is not.the answer. The con-
stitution indicates that someone accused
must be tried in a reasonable period of
time — we have to determine what that

reasonable period of time (is). Obvious-
ly you can't do it in six to eight weeks,
that's difficult to do. But we should be
able to do it within a 24-month period.

"We ought to be able to get those cas-
es through the system, we ought to deter-
mine which cases are able to be dealt
with quickly, which ones are not, and
move them through the process. And so
the attorney general, myself, the police
force, the prosecutor's department, we're
looking at ways to do it. And so the attor-
ney general obviously, because of the
separation of powers between the judi-
ciary and the executive, will have dia-
logue with the chief justice."

When asked what initiatives his min-
istry had on stream to address crime —
particularly the rising number ‘of mur-

ders — Mr Turnquest said he was focus-
ing on breaking up drug cartels and elim-
inating the transshipment of narcotics.
"The actual numbers are not our focus
because really last year we could have
had many more murders if some of (the
victims) who were stabbed or shot did

not survive. What we have to do is reduce..
‘the level of violence within our commu-

nities — a large number are related to the
criminal element, the drug trade in par-
ticular and so our focus is dealing with
that," Mr Turnquest said at the Whyn-
dam Resort before a ceremony celebrat-
ing the end of Public Service Week.

He added that his ministry will con-
tinue carrying out its mandate in terms of
stepping up community policing, police
training, and emphasis on anti-corrup-

tion measures, and acquisition of addi-
tional vessels for the RBDF and reha-
bilitation efforts at Her Majesty's Prison.

When asked what his response was to
recommendations by the Advisory Com-
mittee on Crime, headed by Bishop
Simeon Hall, Mr Turnquest said despite
published reports in another daily a copy

of the final report has not yet crossed his

desk.

Mr Turnquest, who recently returned
from a conference for Public Safety Min-
isters of the Americas in Mexico City,
said while he had seen a "draft" copy a
few weeks ago, he was "pleased with the
level of work" the committee has done.

He expects the committee’s recom-
mendations to reconfirm what his min-
istry is doing.

Mr Garvey said that the min-
istry has been aware of the
problems for the past two years,
but have been dragging its feet.

“These problems have existed -

for some time and there were
two reports issued from the
Department Health over the
past two or three years and
nothing was done to address the
problem,” he said.

Mr Garvey commended Prin-
cipal Stubbs for his decision to
close the school.

“We can’t keep ignoring the
problem.. We have some 860

students who have been out
since Tuesday.

“The teachers want to come
to work, but they need to know
that the environment is safe,”
he said.

Mr Garvey said the PTA has
agreed to alternate students at
the school, using the remaining
22 classrooms, as well as the
auditorium/gymnasium.

“We feel the 18 affected class-
rooms should be condemned
and rebuilt because cleaning
them will not resolve the prob-

actions. We are tired of meet-
ings and consultants. The time
for analysing is over. Now is the
time for action,” Mr Archer said.

He also suggested that the
government provide full paid

scholarships in the fields of geol-
ogy and anthropology.

“Every 40 years, in my opin-
ion, represents a new genera-
tion. So we today must begin to
prepare for the challenges of

tomorrow. We need to expand
the minds of our children so that
they can think beyond their
trained and moulded perception
of life, and there in lies the chal-
lenge,” Mr Archer said.

on the government to
establish an ethanol
production field in
Andros and a new min-
istry to deal directly
with energy and technology in
the Bahamas.

Mr Archer said the govern-
ment should invest heavily in
wind and solar energy and the
production of ethanol.

“I think that Andros is the
perfect location to begin, and to
refine ethanol to ship to the
North American market, in par-
ticular to Florida,” he said.

Mr Archer explained that the
fields should be established in
Andros as that island has
enough unused land to sustain
the large cornfields that are nec-
essary for the production of
ethanol.

Ethanol is also known as eth-
yl or grain alcohol. It is a clear,
colorless liquid, and when used
to power vehicles, is a high per-
formance fuel that produces
clean burning exhaust emissions.

For decades, people have
known how to make ethanol
from fermenting and distilling
starch and sugar crops such as
corn wheat, saw dust, compost,
cornstalks, fruit and vegetable
peelings, sugar cane, and pota-
toes. :

However, education officet at
the Bahamas National Trust,
Shelly Cant, although not.a sup-
porter of ethanol and bio-diesel,
considers ethanol a good ‘quick
fix’. She said if we want to be
completely environmentally
friendly, we should lean towards
completely renewable resources

are going completely

ethanol, there are con-
sequences that we have
to seriously reconsider,” Ms
Cant said.

She pointed out that while
Bahamians must focus on the
immediate economic situation,
they must also look to the
future.

Andros is one of the largest
fishing nurseries in the region
and there are vast amounts of
wildlife on the island. It is also
the source of potable water for
New Providence. “I think if we
are going to spend money, let’s
spend it on mass solar power
research,” Ms Cant said.

Mr Archer said a new min-

address the urgent need for an
effective alternative energy pol-

THE TRIBUNE







Sudoku is a number-placing puzzle based on a 9x9 grid with
several given numbers. The object is to place the numbers 1 to
9 in the empty squares so the each row, each column and each
3x3 box contains the same number only once. The difficulty
level of the Conceptis Sudoku increases from Monday to

Edward Schutter v Samuel

London 1860. It is atways
good to win a game in style,
but what is trty historic fs to
have the winning tactic named
after you. Boden was a minor
Victorian master and a regular at
the famous chess restaurant at
Simpson‘s-in-the Strand, but he
was easily demolished by the likes
of the legends Paul Morphy and
Howard Staunton, Here Schutter
has just castled queen's side and
probably had visians of attack,
but Boden's stunning three-move
sequence as Black (to play) ended
the game and is naw immortalised
as “Boden's Mate” Can you work

Best described as a number crossword, the task in Kakuro is to
fill all of the empty squares, using numbers 1 to 9, so the sum of
each horizontal block equals the number to its left, and the sum
of each vertical block equals the number on its top. No number
may be used in the same block more than once. The difficulty
level of the Conceptis Kakuro increases from Monday to Sunday.

The bidding:
South West North East
4% Pass Pass Pass

Opening lead -— three of clubs.

This hand was played in the
European championships in a match
between Switzerland and Italy.

At both tables, the final contract
was four spades, and at both tables,
the three of clubs was led. The play
varied after the first trick, but in each
case South went down one.

The Swiss declarer took the ace of
clubs and led the ace and another dia-
mond, planning to ruff'a diamond in
dummy at his first opportunity. ast
won the diamond with the queen and
returned a trump to dummy’s king.

At this point, declarer decided to
discard a heart on the king of clubs
before returning to his hand to ruffa

Tomorrow:

diamond, But West ruffed the king
and ‘returned a trump. That spelled
the end of the road for South, since
he still had two diamonds to lose, so
he finished with only nine tricks.

The Italian declarer fared just as
badly. He won the club lead with the
ace and promptly crossed to dummy
with a spade in order to discard a
heart on the king of clubs.

He got the discard all right, but
West ruffed the club and returned a
trump. This left South with three dia-
mond losers, so he also went down
one.

Thus the hand wound up as a tic,
the bad play of each declarer being
offset by his counterpart’s equally
bad play. Both should have made the
contract, of course, but they went
down trying for an unimportant over-
trick.

The safest way to play the hand is
to lead the ace and another diamond
after winning the first trick, Against
the normal trump return, declarer
ruffs a low club with the eight and
trumps a diamond in dummy. South
is then on safe ground. He ruffs a
club with the nine, draws trumps and
winds up with 10 tricks consisting of
seven spades, the two minor-suit
aces and a diamond ruff in dummy.

It is odd that two well-known
international stars, playing in an
important event, cach managed to Bo
down on a basically simple hand.
They both forgot that making the
contract is the primary consideration.

Test your play.

Browns’
Winslow in
hospital

@ By TOM WITHERS
AP Sports Writer



BEREA, Ohio (AP) —
Cleveland Browns tight end
Kellen Winslow was hospital-
ized with an undisclosed ill-
ness and could miss Monday
night’s game against the New
York Giants.

Coach Romeo Crennel said
Friday that Winslow was kept
overnight at the Cleveland
Clinic. Winslow practiced
Monday but had been feeling
ill for several days. The team
sent him to the doctor Thurs-
day for further tests and eval-
uation.

Crennel expects the 25-
year-old player to be dis-
charged later in the day, but
said Winslow could be kept
longer. Citing patient privacy
laws, Crennel did not provide
specifics on Winslow’s illness.

“His arms and legs aren’t
falling off or anything like
that,” said Crennel, adding the
Pro Bowler was questionable
for Monday’s game.

Crennel said he has spoken
with Winslow, who has had to
play through pain throughout
most of his four-year NFL
career.

“He’s a competitive play-

> Crennel said. “We all
know he has. had some
injuries that he has had to deal
with and he’s played through
them, and at times we’ve had
to manage him so that he can
play through them. We know
that he’ll be out there (Mon-
day) if at all possible. If it’s
possible that he can be there,
he’ll be there.”

If Winslow can’t play, Steve
Heiden most likely will start
and backup Darnell Dinkins
will get more playing time.

Winslow has had four oper-
ations on his right knee, and
following one of them needed
surgery after he got a staph
infection. He missed the 2005
season because of a near-fatal
motorcycle crash.

Last season, Winslow had
82 receptions for 1,106 yards.

@ By LEONID CHIZHOV
Associated Press Writer

MOSCOW (AP) — Top-
ranked Jelena Jankovic defeat-
ed Flavia Pennetta 7-6 (6), 6-3
Friday to advance to the semi-
finals of the Kremlin Cup. .

“Tt was a tough match for me
today and I didn’t play the way
I wanted to,” Jankovic said. “I
felt a bit tired and was strug-
gling.”

The 23-year-old Serb will
face defending champion Elena
Dementieva, who beat Nadia
Petrova 6-4, 4-6, 7-6 (6).

“She is the strongest player
in the world,” Dementieva said
of Jankovic. “She’s playing ter-
rific tennis and has just won
back-to-back titles on differ-
ent surfaces. It won’t be an
easy match.”

Jankovic took the top rank-
ing from Serena Williams on
Monday after winning back-to-
back titles at the China Open
and Porsche Grand Prix in
Stuttgart, Germany. Jankovic
will retain her top ranking next
week regardless of the results
in Moscow because Williams,
the runner-up in Moscow last
year, pulled out because of
injury.

After trading serves two
times in the first set, Jankovic
broke, Pennetta for a 6-5 lead
but the Italian broke back to
force a tiebreaker. Pennetta
was 3-0 up, then 5-3 down, but
evened it 6-6 before returning
wide on the next two points.

The 18th-ranked Italian, 3-2
up after breaking Jankovic in
the opening game of the sec-
ond set, saved five break points
in the sixth game before
Jankovic finally broken her on
the 12th deuce to even it 3-3.
The Serb won three more con-
secutive games to close the
match.

Petrova went 4-3 up in the
all-Russian match with a break
in the seventh game of the first
set, but Dementieva won three

set. Dementieva was leading 4-

came back strongly and won
five consecutive games to level
the match at one set each.

In the third, Dementieva
again took a 4-1 lead but Petro-
va rallied back to 4-4 and both
players held their serves to

LONDON (AP) — France
coach Raymond Domenech is
in danger of losing his job only
two games into World Cup
qualifying. Carlos Queiroz is
under pressure barely two
months after taking the Por-
tugal job.

The two teams are fourth in
their qualifying groups, fully
knowing that only those
nations finishing atop each
group are sure to go to South
Africa for the 2010 tourna-
ment.

While World Cup holder
Italy, European champion
Spain, Germany and England
are in strong positions even
this early in the qualifying
stage, France and Portugal
have fallen behind and face
tough away games Saturday.

France goes to Romania and
Portugal visits Sweden.
Defeats will put more pressure
on the two coaches.

While Queiroz is new to the
job and almost certainly will
get more time to get things

right, Domenech already is

barely hanging onto his posi-
tion after France’s dismal first-
round elimination at Euro
2008.

The French federation
warned that Domenech could
be out if the team does not get
a good start to World Cup
qualifying. After a 3-1 loss to
Austria, France rallied with a
2-1 victory over Serbia, but a
defeat in Bucharest on Satur-
day will send the team down to
fifth in Group 7, with only the
Faeroe Islands below.

While France faces the
Romanians without defender
William Gallas and midfielder
Lassana Diarra, Portugal
coach Queiroz has four key
players missing because of
injury.

Ricardo Carvalho, Deco,
Maniche and Simao Sabrosa
will all miss the game in Swe-
den. But Cristiano Ronaldo
returns after a long layoff with
an ankle injury. He missed the
4-0 win at Malta and the 3-2

Former Olympic track star
sentenced to five years in

prison for dealing heroin »

@ By STEVE SZKOTAK
Associated Press Writer

NORFOLK, Va. (AP) —
Disgraced former Olympic
track star Tim Montgomery,
once dubbed “the world’s
fastest man,” was sentenced
Friday to five years in. prison
for dealing heroin to an infor-
mant.

“T was blind — I never had a
job in my life,” Montgomery
told U.S. District Judge Jerome
B. Friedman. “I did the wrong
thing.”

Montgomery, 33, will serve
the five-year sentence after he
completes a 46-month prison
term for an unrelated convic-
tion in New York.

Under an agreement with
the government, he pleaded
guilty in July to possession and
distribution of more than 100
grams of heroin. He received
the minimum term under fed-
eral sentencing guidelines.

A prosecutor described
Montgomery’s athletic skills as
“super-human,” but said he
had squandered his talent and
the acclaim and the money that
came with it. Montgomery won
an Olympic gold medal in the
400-meter relay at the 2000
games and a silver in the same
event four years earlier. A dop-
ing scandal wiped his achieve-
ments from the books.

In a nearly empty court-
room, Montgomery accepted
his sentence accompanied only
by his lawyer, James Brocco-
letti. His parents and siblings
traveled in a van from South
Carolina for the sentencing, but
did not arrive before the 20-
minute ‘hearing ended, Broc-
coletti said.

“What we find here is some-
one who has wrecked his life,”
the prosecutor, Eric M. Hurt,
told the court. ;

He noted that Montgomery’s
heroin arrest came as he await-
ed sentencing on a check-kiting
scheme that ultimately sent

him to prison.

“He has chosen to ignore
every benefit given to him,”
Hurt said.

Montgomery, hands clasped
behind his back, softly
addressed Friedman.

“T just want to say I’ve very
sorry for what I’ve done,” he
told the judge. “I’m sorry to
ay ‘community and my fami-
y.”

Friedman ordered five years

of supervised release and drug
testing after Montgomery
serves his heroin sentence. He
also called Montgomery “total-
ly irresponsible” for fathering
four children with four differ-
ent women, including fellow
disgraced Olympian Marion
Jones. ‘ "
Montgomery’s heroin prose-
cution is based on four drug
sales he made in 2007 and 2008
in Norfolk and Virginia Beach.
A Drug Enforcement Agency
informant made buys that were
either electronically video-
taped, tape-recorded or wit-

nessed by agents, according to |

court records.

Montgomery’s Olympic
medals and his world-record
9.78-second performance in the
100-meter dash were wiped
clean after he was linked to the
investigation of BALCO, the
West Coast lab at the center
of the steroid scandal in sports.
He also was banned from track
for two years.

While he never tested posi-
tive for drugs, he retired in
December 2005 after the ban
was imposed.

Last year, he admitted help-
ing his former coach, Olympic
champion Steve Riddick, and
others cash $1.7 million in
stolen and counterfeit checks.

Riddick is serving a five-year
prison term. Montgomery’s for-
m.r companion, Jones, is serv-
ing a six-month prison sentence
for lying to investigators about
the check-fraud scam and using
steroids.

THE stage has been set for the rising
young stars to strut their stuff in the
annual Catholic Diocesan Primary
Schools basketball tournament.

Thé popular tournament that show-
“ cases six competitive teams from the
Catholic Primary Schools will get
underway on Monday, October 20.

Last year, the St Thomas Sparks,
coached by Nkomo Ferguson, turned
the tables on St Bede’s Crushers when
it counted the most to win the title in
the best-of-three championship series.



St Bede’s, coached by Donnie Cul-
mer, and Freemantle posted a 5-0 win-
loss record to finish in the top spot at
the end of the regular season. St
Thomas More suffered their only defeat
at the hands of St Bede’s.

This year, the two championship
teams won’t square off in the season
opener. Instead, St Thomas More will
play host to Xaviers, coached by Nelson
“Mandella” Joseph.

Larry Wilson, former vice president
of the Bahamas Basketball Federation
and now treasurer of the Bahamas
Olympic Association, will deliver the
keynote address during the brief cere-
monies to kick off the season.

League co-ordinator Patricia Coakley

. said this should be another competi-

tive season to watch.

“TI know the teams have been prac-
ticing a lot. | haven’t seen any of them,”
she stated. “I’m sure it’s going to be
competitive because all of the teams
want to win.”

There is one new addition to the
league with Our Lady’s Blue Flames
acquiring the services of Rohan Parks,
who came over from St Vincent De
Paul in Grand Bahama.

“T don’t know what their team look
like, but I know they have been work-
ing very hard and they are eager to play
under coach Parks,” Coakley noted.

This summer, Coakley said a lot of
the coaches encouraged their players

to participate in some of the basket-

ball camps that were held and they have
indicated that they are quite enthused
about their level of play since they
returned to school.

One of the schools to watch is St
Cecilia’s Strikers, whose coach Leo
Delaney has not settled in after getting
his feet wet last year when he was trans-
ferred from St Thomas More in a swipe
with Ferguson.

Delaney has had an impressive
record at St Thomas, who along with St
Bede’s, has won more titles than any of
the other schools in the league.

General Arthur Hanna and
Prime Minister Hubert Ingra- ©
ham afterwards, the athletes
will go on an island-hopping
trip from Wednesday to Fri-
day.

On their return, they will
gear up for the national awards
banquet when the Bahamas
Government will present the
athletes with their cash incen-
tives and other gifts that they
will receive for their achieve-
ments.

The athletes — some will be
getting back to college and oth-
ers starting their preparation:
for next year — are due to
return to the US on Sunday.



Mexico
expects
tougher
match

against
Jamaica

@ By ANTHONY FOSTER
Associated Press Writer






























KINGSTON, Jamaica
(AP) — As expected, Mexi-
co is on the verge of clinch-
ing a place in the last round
of CONCACAF World Cup
qualifying.

A win at Jamaica on Sat-
urday would put Mexico into
the next round.

The Mexicans came away
3-0 winners in a home match
with Jamaica, but anticipate
a harder test this time
around.

“It is very difficult to
understand how Jamaica will
play,” Mexico coach Sven-
Goran Eriksson said. “The
truth is, it is complicated.”

After three matches, Mex-
ico leads the four-team
Group 2 with nine points,
three ahead of Honduras.
Canada and Jamaica drew 1-
1 and have one point each.

Since losing to Mexico,
Jamaica has made several
changes, included firing
Rene Simoes as head coach
and replacing him with inter-
im coach Theodore Whit-
more.

“We know that he (Whit-
more) has called new players
who were not a part of the
first set of games; therefore
they are a rival we know
very little about,” Eriksson
said. é

Giovani dos Santos, Car-
los Vela and Rafael Mar-
quez will lead Mexico’s bid
for victory. “I think we wil
secure qualification aga‘nst
Jamaica,” the Swede added.
“After that I think the game
against Canada wit be very
easy, although al? 23 players
are in consideration for the
games.”

Whitmore believes his
squad, led by Jamal Ryce-
Campbell, Ricardo Fuller,
Luton Shelton and Damion
Stewart, is capable of beat-
ing Mexico. “We're gunning
for those three points and
nothing less,” Whitmore
said. “Nothing less will be
tolerated come Saturday,
and I think the players have
given me the encouragement
that they can take these
three valuable points.”

RBC opens new branch in

ABACO |

THE Royal Bank of Canada this week
unveiled a $1.1 million investment in Abaco
with the opening of its newest branch office.

RBC has had a presence in Abaco since
1988 and has been serving people in the
Bahamas for the past 100 years.

The first branch in Marsh Harbour was
around 2,400 square feet, but RBC’s new
home is nearly three times this size and
demonstrates the bank’s growth in that com-
munity.

Construction for the new banking centre
began in early 2007 and was completed in
September, 2008.

Vice-president and country head of RBC
Nathaniel Beneby said this branch opening
represents yet another historic event in the
long partnership between RBC andthe |
Bahamas, in particular the community of
Abaco.

“This year will make a century since we
began serving clients in the Bahamas,” he '
said.

“We opened our first office in Abaco
exactly 20 years ago, so it is fitting that today
we are relocating our main Abaco branch to
a new and grander facility.

“We are proud to have become a fixture in

this community and to continue serving
clients in this vital community.”

Head of Caribbean Banking for RBC
Ross McDonald added: “RBC’s recent
acquisition of RBTT makes RBC Royal
Bank of Canada one of the largest financial
institutions in the Caribbean. “But more
than size, our goal is to be number one in

client service and satisfaction. As part of this

community, we will continue invest in and
give back to Abaco and the people who live
and work here,” he said.

In keeping with RBC’s commitment to
assist the communities where the bank does
business, a number of special presentations
were made.

Cheques were presented to two organisa-
tions in Abaco. The first donation was made
to Every Child Counts, the Abaco-based
school that supports the learning of children
with special needs.

The second was presented to support the
ongoing needs at Central Abaco Primary
School...

“With this new and expanded office RBC
has the capacity to continue its long and
prosperous partnership with the Abaco com-
munity and RBC’s continued growth in the
Bahamas,” said Joycé Riviere, RBC’s area
manager for Family Islands.



WENDY Craigg, governor for the Central
Bank of the Bahamas, cuts the ribbon at the
opening of RBC’s new branch in Marsh Har-
bour, Abaco, as Ross McDonald, head of

president and country head, Bahamas, Royal

tor, Central Abaco, looks on.



Sandals Royal Bahamian, one of
the Caribbean's leading wedding
destinations, enhanced its creden-
tials with the unveiling of a new
wedding setting - The Grand

Bougainvillea Gazebo.

General manager Bob Keesler was joined
at the ribbon cutting by the resort’s wedding
team and local minister Reverend Dewitt
Hutcheson, who marked the opening with a

short prayer.

The Grand Bougainvillea Gazebo, aptly
named after the vibrant Bahamian garden in
which it is nestled, was constructed from
white marble and accommodates up to 30
_ guests in the surrounding area, compliment-
ing the resort’s current wedding locations.

Mr Keesler said: “We are delighted to
open up this beautiful setting to both the
people of the Bahamas and our visiting

guests.

“The Bahamas is well-renowned for its

' golden beaches, crystal-clear waters and lush,
colorful gardens and we are pleased to offer
all three with the unforgettable wedding

locations we have at our resort.”

Stapledon School
holds special
assembly to
honour parents

UNDER the theme “Parents and Teach-
ers as Partners”, the Stapledon School held
a special assembly in honour of parents.

The goal of the assembly was to encour-
age parents to become more involved in
the lives of their children by taking an active
interest in what they do at school.

Bringing remarks on behalf of Minister of
Education Carl Bethel was director of high-
er education and lifelong learning, Dr Leon
Higgs.

Dr Higgs said that students win when
the home, school and church come togeth-
er.

He commended the staff for taking time
to express gratitude to parents, and indi-
cated that the partnership was beneficial to
the students and the school.

Dr Higgs explained the value of forming
partnerships, indicating that the Ministry of
Education in collaboration with the Nation-
al Commission on Special Education
(NCOSE), and the Inter-American Devel-
opment Bank (IDB), is working to interest
the public in providing better opportunities
for persons with disabilities, and raising
the quality of special education pro-
grammes.

In conclusion, Dr Higgs thanked the prin-
cipal Angela Butler, along with the Staple-
don family, and asked them to continue to
collaborate with parents so that every child
may have the opportunity to learn.

The organ recital of
Dr Sean Jackson

Dies organ recital of Dr Sean Jackson on Sep-
tember 28 begun punctually at 8pm. He per-

: formed to full capacity at the parish church of the
: Most Holy Trinity to an eager and appreciative audi-
: ence.

To set the atmosphere, the audience sung “When

in Our Music God is Glorified.”

Dr Jackson began his recital with delightful com-

: mentaries that were reminiscent of Leonard Bern-
: stein in his musical features.

Immediately, when he sat down, he was quite

composed and his performance was stable and
: devoid of tension.

The first piece was a robust execution of “Now

Thanks We all Our God” by Johnson Sebastian
: Bach.

It was in this work that he demonstrated his obvi-

ous flare for organ playing.

The tune was prominently heard over the back-

ground of intricate and clearly articulated passage
? work.

The melody was interestingly interspersed with

i episodes.

It showed the flamboyant side of its arranger Vir-

gil Fox, the virtuoso organist.

The acoustics in the church were ideal and none of

the clarity of the articulation was lost.

This polished delivery set the pace for the rest of

the performance.

Following this, was a fitting contrast, the “Adagio”

from the “Toccata, Adagio and Fugue in C major”
: also by the same composer.

After a brief dissertation about the work and

establishing a rapport with the audience, Dr Jackson
: performed this piece.

This is a melancholic work that typified others

like Bach’s “Air on a G string.”

Again it was proficient in execution and accurate,

but I thought this piece could have been a little
: more flowing like the aforementioned work.

Dr Jackson’s gift for human relations was in evi-

dence when he invited the audience to participate by
: clapping to the rhythms of the of the “Fugue a la
:; Gigue” by Bach.

We were able to recognise the melody as it reoc-

? curred, becoming grander and grander with each
: successive hearing.

His precise playing and the acoustics made it eas-

In the “Carillon de Westminster” by Louis Vierne,

everybody was able to recognise the London:chimes’
: melody played over the fast-moving notes.

The audience enjoyed the different sound tex-

tures that he was able to get with the playing of the
: popular tune.

The second section was virtuostic in the co-ordi-

nation of both'the hands andthe feet: « u

The following piece, the “Fantasiein E-flat” which

he played just before the interval, was aptly: placed,

It is typical of many of Saint Saens’s works. He is

: playful, light, humorous and whimsical, especially in
: his solo piano works and piano concerti. This work
: is quite pretty and the organist brought out the com-
; poser’s nature. The second part was more rousing in
: contrast.

After the interval, the “Tuba Tune in D major” by

CS Lang begun with a burst of energy.

Dr Jackson went from manual to manual, demon-

: strating the different shades and colours of the work.

In the “Final in B flat major” by César Frank, a

solemn melody begun in the pedals and was inter-
: woven through the piece.

He did a good job in switching from the melody in

the pedals to the manuals without breaking the con-
: tinuity at any point.

This work was quite involved musically and tech-

nically and in both aspects the performer proved
: himself worthy.

Next, we had a reprieve with “Entry of Tore-

: adors” from “Carmen” by George Bizet which was
? more popular and lighter.

The performer executed this with very crisp stac-

catos in the left hand and a delightful melody in the
; right hand capturing the festive mood of the event.

I think that the audience readily took to this work

i because of its familiarity and its immediate appeal.

He ended the programme with “Sortie or Organ

in E-flat major” by Louis J A Lefebure-Wely.

This composer was arguably the most celebrated

: organist of his time and gave the audience what
: they wanted to hear — dazzling improvisations
i according to the fashionable style of that time.

One can see why Dr Jackson wanted to leave this

: impressive display of fireworks for the final piece in
; the programme.

He had enough energy to bring the message

: across.

The encore, “The Winder Toccata from the Sth

: Symphony” was a veritable tour de force and not
: once did the stamina of the performer seem to dimin-
: ish. This toccata is a festive work usually played at
: weddings or at Easter time, celebrating the resur-
: rection of Jesus Christ.

Dr Jackson certainly captured the joyous mood of

the event with a very pretty tune which we kept
: hearing in different guises amidst a rapid moving,
: clear background with arpeggios. There was also a
: continuous three note rhythmic motive which also
: sustained interest.

This show-stopper came to a conclusion with sev-

: eral grand and stately chords.

Lam sure that this recital proved a gratifying expe-

: rience for the entire audience.

There was not one person that was not satisfied.
What was very impressive about Dr Jackson was

: the way he effortlessly executed the challenging
: pieces in the second half of the programme and at the
? end of the evening was unfazed by it all.

His physical and mental stamina are commend-

It is hoped that Bahamians will observe that the

: islands in the region like Barbados, Trinidad and
:; Jamaica are not content to produce just enough to
:; cope, but are going to the extreme limits of their
: potential.

They are examples of what can be done in the

: realm of classical music regardless of ethnicity,

Bahamians who have a similar kind of potential
need to realise that there is no viable culture that is

; monolithic.

They need to know that their callings are very

: individualistic and pursue them.

What this nation needs to do is bring out more of

; the younger and receptive minds.

They must imbibe such wonderful disntavs of tal

Pasi Cola Bahamas
is shutting down

75 local
employees |.
will lose
their jobs

@ By KARIN HERIG
Tribune Staff Reporter
kherig@tribunemedia.net

$

A MAJOR international com-
pany has announced that it is
shutting down its operations in
the Bahamas and letting 75 local
employees go.

Pepsi-Cola Bahamas yester-
day said it is closing the company
due to “ongoing profitability chal-
lenges.”

The company yesterday noti-
fied the Ministry of Labour that
effective from November 14, the

company will cease manufactur- .

ing operations and on December
5 it will close its sales and distrib-
ution operations in the Bahamas.

Rick Wooten, senior vice-pres-
ident of Caribbean operations for
PepsiAmericas, said in a state-
ment that the decision to cease
production and sales in the
Bahamas was not a reflection of
the quality or service provided by
the employees there, but instead,
that the overall business lacks
scale to support continuation of
local manufacturing.

Despite continued investments
in both physical and human capi-
tal, the business has not met
expectations for profitability, the
company said.

“Probably the most difficult
decision a company can make is
to close an operation,” Mr
Wooten said.

“We understand the impact
such a decision has on employ-
ees and on the island of the
Bahamas, and we’re committed
to providing severance assistance
to help those individuals as they
find alternate employment.”

Te INAUGURAL wedding at the Wyndham Nassau Resort's new boardwalk gazebo.

@ By CHESTER ROBARDS
Tribune Staff Reporter

AMIDST an economic downturn and low occu-
pancy rates, Bahamar and Wyndham are contin-
uing their improvement and expansions plans.

Speaking with The Tribune yesterday, Robert
Sands, Senior’ Vice President of Administration
and External Affairs for Bahamar, said though
there have been cuts in this increasingly stagnat-
ing market, they are moving forward with devel-
opments that will be financially viable in the very

near future.

“Being visionaries we have to find those nich-

es to grow sales,” he said.

“Focusing on niche marketing, a market that is
growing, we felt like we were deficient in having
the right type of facilities to adequately cater to it,

MINISTER of National

said he is concerned with the
number of persons accused of
serious offences out on bail and
the backlog in the court sys-
tem.

The constitution of the
Bahamas stipulates that a per-

have their day in court in a rea-

Two held i in
connection
with murder
of woman

@ By TANEKA THOMPSON

tthompson@tribunemedia.net

POLICE have two men in
custody in connection with the
brutal murder of Sheanda
Lewis, whose body was found
in bushes off Charles Saunders
Highway last week.

Although police are “still
working to put the pieces
together” they say they are fol-
lowing significant leads.

“We are seeing some very
positive and encouraging signs.
However, while we have been
questioning several persons, we
are not at the point yet to place
anyone before the courts,” Act-
ing Assistant Commissioner
Hulan Hanna said.

Man charged
with murder

@ By DENISE MAYCOCK
Tribune Freeport Reporter

On Saturday, the body of
Lewis, a 19-year-old resident of
Blue Hill Road, was found clad
only in red underwear. Her
throat appeared to have been
slit. Police said there were signs
that she struggled with her
killer.

A motive has yet to be estab-
lished, Chief Supt Glenn Miller
told The Tribune yesterday. |

Police have also said it was
too early to tell if there was any
sexual trauma to the victim,
although the circumstances sur-
rounding her death indicate
there may have been.

_ CSP Miller said one man is in
custody and another was picked
up yesterday.

Both are helping police in
their investigations.

Workers pushed themselves to complete a 500
ft boardwalk behind the Wyndham resort to host
a wedding in a grand gazebo, 30ft in diameter,
which anchors the east end of the new addition.

The wedding party comprised 40 cruise ship
passengers and took place around 1.30 pm yes-
terday.

When the boardwalk is completed sometime in
the next two weeks the western side of the resort
will house a daiquiri stand and improvements
will begin to the resort’s pools and restaurants,
said Food and Beverage and Entertainment Man-
ager.Mark Hawken.

Guests can look forward to a bandstand tow-
ering above the pool in the rocks adjacent to the

FREEPORT - A Nassau man was charged
with murder in the Freeport Magistrate’s Court on Friday in connec-
tion with the shooting at the Pepper Pot Restaurant.

Kema Anton Moss, 29, of Wilson Tract, New Providence, ‘appeared
before Deputy Chief Magistrate Helen Jones in Court 2, where he was
charged with the murder of 23-year-old Joseph Andrecko Cooper of
Coral Gardens.

It is alleged that on October 4, the accused intentionally caused
the death of Cooper by means of unlawful harm.

Moss was not required to enter a plea to murder. He was not rep-
resented by counsel.

Magistrate, Jones adjourned the matter to March 11, 2009, for pre-
liminary inquiry. Moss was denied bail and remanded to Her Majesty’s
Prison, Fox Hill.

FREEPORT — Ministry of

Education officials in Freeport

are trying to quickly resolve

major health issues at the Eight

Mile Rock High School, tem-

porarily closed for more than

week.

Over 800 students, teachers,
and. administration staff were
sent home last Tuesday after
almost half of the 40 classrooms
were declared unsafe and unfit
for occupation for various
health reasons.

School Superintendent
Hezekiah Dean, Eight Mile
Rock Principal Benjamin
Stubbs, and members of the
Parents Teachers Association
at Eight Mile Rock were at the
school on Friday to further

assess the situation, and to
determine a suitable rotation
schedule for the return of stu-
dents and teachers at the school.

Troy Garvey, PTA president,
said 18 classrooms, including
the Nutrition and Home Eco-
nomics classes, have been iden-
tified as a health risk because
of the serious rodent, bat, and
pigeon infestation problems
there.

He said that the unpleasant
odour and fecal droppings in
the classrooms were making
students and teachers sick.

In addition to the infestation
problem, Mr Dean said that
major sewage back-ups and
plumbing problems exist at the
school.

“We have contracted three
companies who are now work-
ing to correct these problems,

Man shot in night-time robbery of car wash

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



POLICE are investigating the
night-time robbery of a car-wash
which left a man nursing a gun-
shot wound and several gunmen
on the loose. LN

Assistant Commissioner Hulan
Hanna said that around 8.20 pm
on Thursday, Algernon Turnquest
was at a car wash on Talberth
Street when he was approached
by two o: three men.

“The men reportedly: demanded
cash from Mr Turnquest and in
the process of the robbery he was

shot in the right leg.

Mr Hanna said the victim was _ :
taken to hospital where his condi-
tion is listed as serious but not life-

threatening.

Police also reported that earlier i
in the evening, around 6pm, an :

employee of an establishment on ;

East Bay Street buzzed the door,
allowing an unknown person
entry.

gun, held up the employee and }

demanded money.

The culprit was able to escape

with cash and a camera.

Police have not made any
arrests, but investigations continue. :

in food crisis, Cuba limits sales so all can eat

i HAVANA



CUBA is limiting how much basic fruits and vegetables people can_;
buy at farmers’ markéts; irritating some customers but ensuring” :
there’s enough — barely — to go around, according to Associated }
Press. ;
The lines are long and some foods are scarce, but because the ;
government has maintained and even increased rations in some :
areas, Cubans who initially worried about getting enough to eat now }
seem confident they won’t go hungry despite the destruction of 30 per- :
cent of the island’s crops by hurricanes Gustav and Ike last month. :

“Of the little there is, there is some for everyone,” 65-year-old Mer- :
cedes Grimau said as queued up behind more than 50 people to }
buy lettuce, limited to two pounds per person. ;

“I’m not afraid that I will be left without food, but it’s a pain to :
think about all the work we are going to have to go through,” Grimau
added. “Two or three months ago the farmers markets were well- ;
stocked.” i

CONSIDERING the eco-
nomic conditions facing the '
country, Obie Wilchcombe,
PLP MP for West End and
Bimini, questioned govern-
ment’s judgment in allowing
78 screeners at Lynden Pin-
dling International Airport to
be fired by the end of the
month.

He pointed out that eco-
nomic conditions in the
Bahamas have fallen to such
a deplorable state that a num-
ber of unemployed women in
Grand Bahama have resorted
to dancing at two of the
island’s local strip clubs. Mr
Wilchcombe cried shame on
government for not coming
to the assistance of Bahami-
ans in such difficult times.

“I want one of the FNMs
to tell me tonight why at this
rough time is the government
deciding to enforce the policy
that the PLP allowed to lay
dormant for several years that
requires police domiciled in
Freeport to remove them-
selves and their families into
private dwellings out of the
police facilities. They have
told them that at the end of
the month they have to be
out.

“Where is our love? Where
is our compassion? And
where is our sensitivity?” he
asked.

Mr Wilchcombe added that
in Grand Bahama over 2,000
people have had to resort to
social service assistance, with
families having to take their
children out of private
schools and put them in pub-
lic schools. As a result, he
said, the public school system
in Grand Bahama is bursting

turned away as there is no
more space available.

“Men and. women
employed at the Sheraton
and Lucaya in Grand
Bahama are living lives of
uncertainty. Many are work-
ing only one day, and if you
are lucky, two days, but only
four hours in any of those
days. They have little or noth-
ing to take home. I asked one
lady how is she making it?
And she told me, ‘I am not. I
am not paying any of my
bills’,” he said.

Himself a former Minister
of Tourism, Mr Wilchcombe
said he hoped Tourism Min-
ister Vincent Vanderpool-
Wallace would find a solution
to the “vexing issues” that
hinder the growth and devel-
opment of the tourism indus-
try.

“He is seeking to place the
country back on course with a
plan that envelopes those
things that were there before
Neko Grant came on the

Missed opportunities to show some class

5

THE Republicans are right. Character does
count.

But my guess is that the American people
won’t make ultimate judgments on those hop-
ing to lead our country based on where
they’ve attended church or based on horrific
innuendoes about the patriotism and past
crimes of casual acquaintances.

In fact, John McCain’s and Sarah Palin’s
McCarthyite zeal to slime Barack Obama in
that manner may have made them miss gold-
en opportunities that could have paid politi-
cal dividends.

If each of them had slowed things down
and uttered an appropriate rebuke when peo-
ple in the audiences had shouted hateful epi-
thets, it might have provided exactly the kind
of game-changing occurrence they’ve been so
desperately seeking the past two weeks.

Even Obama supporters would have taken
notice, and it would have scored valour
points. Especially, that is, if both Republi-
cans had just had that reaction as an unscript-
ed instinct.

Would that have meant a couple of points

bump in the polls? A tiny blip? No impact at .

all? I don’t know.

But I’m fairly certain that TV pundits
would still be talking about it. At minimum,
it would have countered, and shared airtime
with, endless chatter about polls that show
McCain lost yet another debate, and others
that show his support slipping in once-red
battleground states.

More important, it would have said some-
thing to impressionable Americans about
McCain’s and Palin’s personal decency, char-
acter and mettle. ,

Similar hate speech has been shouted else-
where, including a joint McCain-Palin rally in
Pennsylvania. But so far, the campaign’s only
response is a lame statement that it does not
condone “inappropriate rhetoric which dis-
tracts.”

McCain apparently missed a similar teach-
ing moment last November when someone,
referring to then-Democratic front-runner
Hilary Clinton, asked, “How do we beat the
bitch?”

McCain chuckled and guffawed with the
crowd before saying, as laughter subsided, it
was “an excellent question.” Much later, he
added, “I respect Senator Clinton.”

There were later some expressions of regret
by the campaign or McCain himself. Too bad

that regret did not include a resolve to handle
similar situations differently.

Politicians don’t get it. But American vot-
ers can respond positively to decency, mag-
nanimity and class, even if cable news pundits
and Internet bloggers get more worked up
over crass attacks and mudslinging.

Far be it from me to tell McCain he should-
n’t go for broke in the waning days of this
campaign.

I know he wants to win, and I suspect that
in his sincerest moments of personal reflec-
tion he genuinely feels the country will be
better off if he does.

At 72, McCain, unlike Obama, doesn’t
have the luxury of entertaining fallback
notions about viability in 2012 if things don’t
work out this time.

If the brightest minds on his strategy team
are telling him he has absolutely no way of

winning without demonizing Obama’s tenu-.

ous connections to William Ayers and Rev.
Jeremiah Wright, while also trying to raise
some legitimate doubts about him as well, I

‘guess I understand. Perhaps, I should keep

my criticism of that campaign strategy some-
what muted. .

But where is the old John McCain, who
just months ago, vowed a clean campaign
based on issues and a clear articulation of
his vision for the country?

The old John McCain — the highly princi-
pled one — might have reacted differently to
this week’s ugly incidents.

Anyone. with the audacity, bad manners

. and bad taste to shout epithets might have

heard a stern denunciation. McCain most
certainly would not be stirring up the furore
that encourages such inappropriate over exu-
berance.

The old McCain that people of every polit-
ical stripe once admired might be vetoing
negative ads that pass neither the truth nor
fairness test — not debuting new ones day in
and day out.

The new John McCain may very well over-
come all of his political obstacles and become
the 44th president of the United States. But
the sad irony, I suspect, is that the old John
McCain would now be in a much better posi-
tion.

THE TRIBUNE

Martin Marietta’s
Bahama Rock —

EDITOR, The Tribune.

I FELT a strong need to
write this letter and express my
feelings on paper. I believe that
the residents of Grand Bahama
are still very much unaware of
the damaging effects of Martin
Marietta’s Bahama Rock
(MMBR). Recently Bahama
Rock has hosted two commu-
nity town meetings and in all
honesty I must admit that the
meetings were very disappoint-
ing. The second of the two
meetings was especially disap-
pointing'in that the many ques-
tions and concerns that were
presented to the panelists rep-
resenting Martin Marietta’s
Bahama Rock (MMBR) were
either not adequately answered
or not answered at all!

Presently the residents of
Eight Mile Rock have been
experiencing damage to their
homes. Many of the wells in
which residents were able to
pump fresh water have been
contaminated, the pine forests
which depend on fresh water
to grow are drying up, man-
grove swamps where most of
our marine life depend upon
for proliferation are being
destroyed and finally the
ruinous flooding that we have
experienced are in my opinion
all due to the dredging and
blasting by MMBR. The Envi-
ronmental Impactment Assess-
ment (EIA) is yet to be accessi-
ble to the public after numerous
requests for it. Also, I suggest
that the government should
recruit a neutral group of seis-
mologists and environmental
scientists to assess the possible
damage and potential damage
to homes in Eight Mile Rock
rather than accepting the data
from scientists on the MMBR
pay roll.

It is very surprising to me that
MMBR is seeking approval for
expansion to their next phase
(which is expanding west of the
Warren J Levarity Highway)
when they were contracted to
be in operation for a limited
time. They are presently seek-
ing this approval from the Gov-
ernment and the Grand
Bahama Port Authority and no
representatives from either par-
ty were present at the first
meeting.

Mrs Vernae Grant (MP for
the Eight Mile Rock con-
stituency) is to be congratulated
for her attendance to the 2nd
Bahama Rock meeting and also
the last town meeting which
was held by the Grand Bahama
Committee for Concerned Res-
idents. It was during this meet-
ing that Mrs Grant made a
promise to residents that she
will correspond with the Minis-

ters of Environmental Health

and the Minister of Housing to
ensure that they become aware
of the strong opposition
expressed by the majority of
Eight Mile Rock residents in
regards to the expansion of
Bahama Rock west of the War-
ren J Levarity Highway.

Mr Walter Reed, General
Manager of Bahama Rock has
communicated to the residents
of Grand Bahama over and
repeatedly that the expansion
of MMBR will provide thou-
sands of jobs for Grand
Bahama but we have yet to be
told what type of jobs will be
available and their job descrip-
tions? Moreover, the expected
date these jobs will be avail-
able. This would be more ben-
eficial to us rather than import-
ing hundreds of foreign
employees to do the work, if
the government gives approval
but I am hoping they don’t. A
trait that is typical of most for-
eign investors.

Mr Walter Reed stated in the
MMBR’s first town meeting
that the GBPA has issued a
written statement that they
have no interest in the remain-
ing fresh water lenses in west
Grand Bahama. If anyone read-
ing this article was on the island
of Grand Bahama after hurri-
cane Frances in 2004 you will
recall that there was no power
on the island for weeks and
many of us had to revert to
those old water wells to pump
water because the Grand
Bahama Port Authority. could
not supply water to the island.
Therefore, their alleged state-
ment to Mr Reed that they
have no need for these fresh
water lenses does not mean that
we have no need for them! We
would much rather have it and
not need it, than to need it and
not have it!

Should the government and
the GBPA approve this expan-
sion of MMBR west of the
Warren J Levarity Highway;
the following provisions should
be incorporated as to aid the
many Bahamians who will be
affected by this action.

A dowry should be provided
by MMBR for young Bahami-
ans who are willing to study
Marine Biology and Environ-
mental Sciences so that they
can help prevent further dam-
aging effects. We need the gov-
ernment to make MMBR
accountable for proper dispos-
al of waste products.

The MMBR must also devel-

_op solar powered reverse osmo-

sis plants that will aid in the
restoration of our precious nat-
ural resources such as our fresh
water systems, pine forests and
mangroves.

No less than 15 to 20 per cent
of their earnings should be
going to the government to
invest in two of our most crucial
and unfortunately most neglect-
ed issues, education and health-
care. At a minimum, 15 per
cent of earnings should be
invested into programmes to
help relocate, rebuild and aid
in any health related issue of
the resident within a 25-30 mile
radius deemed to be directly
related to or affected by the
actions of the company. This

proposal will be effective from
the first date of the first action
within the radius with no time
limited or ending period as it
is still uncertain the direct neg-
ative result that will come from
the company’s actions.

We all know that the GBPA
will grant approval of the next
phase of blasting for MMBR
(they receive millions of dol-
lars from MMBR annually);
however, the real question is:
Will our government leaders
grant the approval for this
expansion as well? As it stands,
they have allowed MMBR to
continue blasting and dredging
as usual after a cease and desist
order was issued by the former
government. Dr Marcus Bethel
permitted a brief blasting exer-
cise for investigative purposes
only. Is the investigation com-
plete? Who gave Bahama ‘Rock
permission to continue blasting
and dredging! Moreover, in
these extremely difficult eco-
nomic times; the government
has increased the duty rate
from 35 per cent to 45 per cent
and added duty to items that
previously were duty free. (For
example, baby items and school
supplies). Through my research.
I found information stating
explosives and dynamite are
now duty free. If this is not true
will someone please inform the
public because inquiring minds
want to know. How are they
gaining approval from our gov-
ernment? We have to question
the ethics of all those involved
as history has taught us that
many times in our country
money is the underlining fac-
tor of many for the creation of
our unfortunate circumstances.
Therefore, I sincerely hope this
is not a case of history repeating
itself. How can the government
grant approval knowing the
detrimental affects it will have
on the island and also knowing
that the majority of the resi-
dents in Eight Mile Rock are
in strong opposition to this
expansion?

How will we be able to
answer the people whose
homes were affected by the
blasting and our children and
their children when the ques-
tion is presented to us to how
we were able to sit back pas-
sively and allow their God-giv-
en natural resources to be
destroyed!

We need the Prime Minister,
the Minister of Environmental
Health, the Minister of
Tourism, the Minister of Hous-
ing and the six MPs for Grand
Bahama to meet with the resi-
dents of Granél Bahama and
tell us why they are willing to
aid in the disastrous destruc-
tion of our natural resources in
which there is absolutely no
benefit for the Bahamian peo-
ple. Let’s not forget that these
natural resources are the rea-
son Tourism is our No. | indus-
try. Please do not allow Grand
Bahama, which has the sécond
largest marine nursery system
in the Bahamas, to end up like
Bimini Bay or Exuma that can
no longer go and fish for snap-
pers and get fresh water out of
their back yards but now have
to purchase it!

_ Turnquest concerned over
the number of persons accused

of serious offences on bail |

Pepsi-Cola Bahamas
is shutting down

were personally informed of
the decision by Mr Wooten.

Although these 75 persons
are now coming into a market
with reduced employment
opportunities, the news may
not be all bad for the soon-to-
be former Pepsi-Cola workers.

Walter Wells, head of
Caribbean Bottling —- which
holds the local franchise for
Coca-Cola — said that his com-
pany is willing to absorb as
many of the 75 persons as pos-
sible.

Mr Wells said he is more
than happy to help out the for-
mer Pepsi-Cola employees by
offering them jobs at his com-

pany. seat

Although Pepsi-Cola is
ceasing its production opera-
tions in the Bahamas, the com-
pany will continue to service
Pepsi customers using a local
distributor to deliver, sell and
service its customers.

The closure of this major
beverage production company
follows just month’s after the
country’s largest liquor pro-
ducer, Bacardi and Company,
announced its plans to pull out
of the Bahamas.

In August of this year, Bac-
ardi announced that it will
move its Bahamian operations
to Puerto Rico by 2009.

Some 114 Bahamians at
Bacardi were affected by this
decision.

Pepsi-Cola Bahamas is a
majority-owned subsidiary of
PepsiAmericas, which is the
second-largest Pepsi bottler
with operations in 19 states,
’ Central and Eastern Europe,
including Ukraine, Romania,
Poland, Hungary, the Czech
Republic, and Republic of Slo-
vakia, and the Caribbean.

FROM page one

Said Minister Turnquest: "We're still
very concerned at the delays at getting
these persons to trial and there's no

blame to be put on any one agency, so we _

all have to take responsibility for it and as
a government we have to ensure that it
happens. We are also concerned about
the number of persons who have com-
mitted serious offences who are out on
bail.

: "We've determined, or the Supreme

Court has determined, that amending
the bail act is not.the answer. The con-
stitution indicates that someone accused
must be tried in a reasonable period of
time — we have to determine what that

reasonable period of time (is). Obvious-
ly you can't do it in six to eight weeks,
that's difficult to do. But we should be
able to do it within a 24-month period.

"We ought to be able to get those cas-
es through the system, we ought to deter-
mine which cases are able to be dealt
with quickly, which ones are not, and
move them through the process. And so
the attorney general, myself, the police
force, the prosecutor's department, we're
looking at ways to do it. And so the attor-
ney general obviously, because of the
separation of powers between the judi-
ciary and the executive, will have dia-
logue with the chief justice."

When asked what initiatives his min-
istry had on stream to address crime —
particularly the rising number ‘of mur-

ders — Mr Turnquest said he was focus-
ing on breaking up drug cartels and elim-
inating the transshipment of narcotics.
"The actual numbers are not our focus
because really last year we could have
had many more murders if some of (the
victims) who were stabbed or shot did

not survive. What we have to do is reduce..
‘the level of violence within our commu-

nities — a large number are related to the
criminal element, the drug trade in par-
ticular and so our focus is dealing with
that," Mr Turnquest said at the Whyn-
dam Resort before a ceremony celebrat-
ing the end of Public Service Week.

He added that his ministry will con-
tinue carrying out its mandate in terms of
stepping up community policing, police
training, and emphasis on anti-corrup-

tion measures, and acquisition of addi-
tional vessels for the RBDF and reha-
bilitation efforts at Her Majesty's Prison.

When asked what his response was to
recommendations by the Advisory Com-
mittee on Crime, headed by Bishop
Simeon Hall, Mr Turnquest said despite
published reports in another daily a copy

of the final report has not yet crossed his

desk.

Mr Turnquest, who recently returned
from a conference for Public Safety Min-
isters of the Americas in Mexico City,
said while he had seen a "draft" copy a
few weeks ago, he was "pleased with the
level of work" the committee has done.

He expects the committee’s recom-
mendations to reconfirm what his min-
istry is doing.

Mr Garvey said that the min-
istry has been aware of the
problems for the past two years,
but have been dragging its feet.

“These problems have existed -

for some time and there were
two reports issued from the
Department Health over the
past two or three years and
nothing was done to address the
problem,” he said.

Mr Garvey commended Prin-
cipal Stubbs for his decision to
close the school.

“We can’t keep ignoring the
problem.. We have some 860

students who have been out
since Tuesday.

“The teachers want to come
to work, but they need to know
that the environment is safe,”
he said.

Mr Garvey said the PTA has
agreed to alternate students at
the school, using the remaining
22 classrooms, as well as the
auditorium/gymnasium.

“We feel the 18 affected class-
rooms should be condemned
and rebuilt because cleaning
them will not resolve the prob-

actions. We are tired of meet-
ings and consultants. The time
for analysing is over. Now is the
time for action,” Mr Archer said.

He also suggested that the
government provide full paid

scholarships in the fields of geol-
ogy and anthropology.

“Every 40 years, in my opin-
ion, represents a new genera-
tion. So we today must begin to
prepare for the challenges of

the minds of our children so that
they can think beyond their
trained and moulded perception

lenge,” Mr Archer said.

on the government to
establish an ethanol
production field in
Andros and a new min-
istry to deal directly
with energy and technology in
the Bahamas.

Mr Archer said the govern-
ment should invest heavily in
wind and solar energy and the
production of ethanol.

“I think that Andros is the
perfect location to begin, and to
refine ethanol to ship to the
North American market, in par-
ticular to Florida,” he said.

Mr Archer explained that the
fields should be established in
Andros as that island has
enough unused land to sustain
the large cornfields that are nec-
essary for the production of
ethanol.

Ethanol is also known as eth-
yl or grain alcohol. It is a clear,
colorless liquid, and when used
to power vehicles, is a high per-
formance fuel that produces
clean burning exhaust emissions.

For decades, people have
known how to make ethanol
from fermenting and distilling
starch and sugar crops such as
corn wheat, saw dust, compost,
cornstalks, fruit and vegetable
peelings, sugar cane, and pota-
toes. :

However, education officet at
the Bahamas National Trust,
Shelly Cant, although not.a sup-
porter of ethanol and bio-diesel,
considers ethanol a good ‘quick
fix’. She said if we want to be
completely environmentally
friendly, we should lean towards
completely renewable resources

are going completely

ethanol, there are con-
sequences that we have
to seriously reconsider,” Ms
Cant said.

She pointed out that while
Bahamians must focus on the
immediate economic situation,
they must also look to the
future.

Andros is one of the largest
fishing nurseries in the region
and there are vast amounts of
wildlife on the island. It is also
the source of potable water for
New Providence. “I think if we
are going to spend money, let’s
spend it on mass solar power

Sudoku is a number-placing puzzle based on a 9x9 grid with
several given numbers. The object is to place the numbers 1 to
9 in the empty squares so the each row, each column and each
3x3 box contains the same number only once. The difficulty
level of the Conceptis Sudoku increases from Monday to

Edward Schutter v Samuel

London 1860. It is atways
good to win a game in style,
but what is trty historic fs to
have the winning tactic named
after you. Boden was a minor
Victorian master and a regular at
the famous chess restaurant at
Simpson‘s-in-the Strand, but he
was easily demolished by the likes
of the legends Paul Morphy and
Howard Staunton, Here Schutter
has just castled queen's side and
probably had visians of attack,
but Boden's stunning three-move
sequence as Black (to play) ended
the game and is naw immortalised
as “Boden's Mate” Can you work
out what happened?

Best described as a number crossword, the task in Kakuro is to
fill all of the empty squares, using numbers 1 to 9, so the sum of
each horizontal block equals the number to its left, and the sum
of each vertical block equals the number on its top. No number
may be used in the same block more than once. The difficulty
level of the Conceptis Kakuro increases from Monday to Sunday.

The bidding:

4% Pass Pass Pass

Opening lead -— three of clubs.

This hand was played in the
European championships in a match
between Switzerland and Italy.

At both tables, the final contract
was four spades, and at both tables,
the three of clubs was led. The play
varied after the first trick, but in each
case South went down one.

The Swiss declarer took the ace of
clubs and led the ace and another dia-
mond, planning to ruff'a diamond in
dummy at his first opportunity. ast
won the diamond with the queen and
returned a trump to dummy’s king.

At this point, declarer decided to
discard a heart on the king of clubs
before returning to his hand to ruffa

Tomorrow:

diamond, But West ruffed the king
and ‘returned a trump. That spelled
the end of the road for South, since
he still had two diamonds to lose, so
he finished with only nine tricks.

The Italian declarer fared just as
badly. He won the club lead with the
ace and promptly crossed to dummy
with a spade in order to discard a
heart on the king of clubs.

He got the discard all right, but
West ruffed the club and returned a
trump. This left South with three dia-
mond losers, so he also went down
one.

Thus the hand wound up as a tic,
the bad play of each declarer being
offset by his counterpart’s equally
bad play. Both should have made the
contract, of course, but they went
down trying for an unimportant over-
trick.

The safest way to play the hand is
to lead the ace and another diamond
after winning the first trick, Against
the normal trump return, declarer
ruffs a low club with the eight and
trumps a diamond in dummy. South
is then on safe ground. He ruffs a
club with the nine, draws trumps and
winds up with 10 tricks consisting of
seven spades, the two minor-suit
aces and a diamond ruff in dummy.

It is odd that two well-known
international stars, playing in an
important event, cach managed to Bo
down on a basically simple hand.
They both forgot that making the
contract is the primary consideration.

Test your play.

Browns’
Winslow in
hospital

@ By TOM WITHERS
AP Sports Writer



BEREA, Ohio (AP) —
Cleveland Browns tight end
Kellen Winslow was hospital-
ized with an undisclosed ill-
ness and could miss Monday
night’s game against the New
York Giants.

Coach Romeo Crennel said
Friday that Winslow was kept
overnight at the Cleveland
Clinic. Winslow practiced
Monday but had been feeling
ill for several days. The team
sent him to the doctor Thurs-
day for further tests and eval-
uation.

Crennel expects the 25-
year-old player to be dis-
charged later in the day, but
said Winslow could be kept
longer. Citing patient privacy
laws, Crennel did not provide
specifics on Winslow’s illness.

“His arms and legs aren’t
falling off or anything like
that,” said Crennel, adding the
Pro Bowler was questionable
for Monday’s game.

Crennel said he has spoken
with Winslow, who has had to
play through pain throughout
most of his four-year NFL
career.

“He’s a competitive play-

> Crennel said. “We all
know he has. had some
injuries that he has had to deal
with and he’s played through
them, and at times we’ve had
to manage him so that he can
play through them. We know
that he’ll be out there (Mon-
day) if at all possible. If it’s
possible that he can be there,
he’ll be there.”

If Winslow can’t play, Steve
Heiden most likely will start
and backup Darnell Dinkins
will get more playing time.

Winslow has had four oper-
ations on his right knee, and
following one of them needed
surgery after he got a staph
infection. He missed the 2005
season because of a near-fatal
motorcycle crash.

Last season, Winslow had
82 receptions for 1,106 yards.

@ By LEONID CHIZHOV
Associated Press Writer

MOSCOW (AP) — Top-
ranked Jelena Jankovic defeat-
ed Flavia Pennetta 7-6 (6), 6-3
Friday to advance to the semi-
finals of the Kremlin Cup. .

“Tt was a tough match for me
today and I didn’t play the way
I wanted to,” Jankovic said. “I
felt a bit tired and was strug-
gling.”

The 23-year-old Serb will
face defending champion Elena
Dementieva, who beat Nadia
Petrova 6-4, 4-6, 7-6 (6).

“She is the strongest player
in the world,” Dementieva said
of Jankovic. “She’s playing ter-
rific tennis and has just won
back-to-back titles on differ-
ent surfaces. It won’t be an
easy match.”

Jankovic took the top rank-
ing from Serena Williams on
Monday after winning back-to-
back titles at the China Open
and Porsche Grand Prix in
Stuttgart, Germany. Jankovic
will retain her top ranking next
week regardless of the results
in Moscow because Williams,
the runner-up in Moscow last
year, pulled out because of
injury.

After trading serves two
times in the first set, Jankovic
broke, Pennetta for a 6-5 lead
but the Italian broke back to
force a tiebreaker. Pennetta
was 3-0 up, then 5-3 down, but
evened it 6-6 before returning
wide on the next two points.

The 18th-ranked Italian, 3-2
up after breaking Jankovic in
the opening game of the sec-
ond set, saved five break points
in the sixth game before
Jankovic finally broken her on
the 12th deuce to even it 3-3.
The Serb won three more con-
secutive games to close the
match.

Petrova went 4-3 up in the
all-Russian match with a break
in the seventh game of the first
set, but Dementieva won three

consecutive games to ‘ake the
set. Dementieva was leading 4-
1 in the second set but Petrova
came back strongly and won
five consecutive games to level
the match at one set each.

In the third, Dementieva
again took a 4-1 lead but Petro-
va rallied back to 4-4 and both
players held their serves to
force a tiebreaker. Dementieva
won on her third match point.

LONDON (AP) — France
coach Raymond Domenech is
in danger of losing his job only
two games into World Cup
qualifying. Carlos Queiroz is
under pressure barely two
months after taking the Por-
tugal job.

The two teams are fourth in
their qualifying groups, fully
knowing that only those
nations finishing atop each
group are sure to go to South
Africa for the 2010 tourna-
ment.

While World Cup holder
Italy, European champion
Spain, Germany and England
are in strong positions even
this early in the qualifying
stage, France and Portugal
have fallen behind and face
tough away games Saturday.

France goes to Romania and
Portugal visits Sweden.
Defeats will put more pressure
on the two coaches.

While Queiroz is new to the
job and almost certainly will
get more time to get things

right, Domenech already is

barely hanging onto his posi-
tion after France’s dismal first-
round elimination at Euro
2008.

The French federation
warned that Domenech could
be out if the team does not get
a good start to World Cup
qualifying. After a 3-1 loss to
Austria, France rallied with a
2-1 victory over Serbia, but a
defeat in Bucharest on Satur-
day will send the team down to
fifth in Group 7, with only the
Faeroe Islands below.

While France faces the
Romanians without defender
William Gallas and midfielder
Lassana Diarra, Portugal
coach Queiroz has four key
players missing because of
injury.

Ricardo Carvalho, Deco,
Maniche and Simao Sabrosa
will all miss the game in Swe-
den. But Cristiano Ronaldo

Former Olympic track star
sentenced to five years in

prison for dealing heroin »

@ By STEVE SZKOTAK
Associated Press Writer

NORFOLK, Va. (AP) —
Disgraced former Olympic
track star Tim Montgomery,
once dubbed “the world’s
fastest man,” was sentenced
Friday to five years in. prison
for dealing heroin to an infor-
mant.

“T was blind — I never had a
job in my life,” Montgomery
told U.S. District Judge Jerome
B. Friedman. “I did the wrong
thing.”

Montgomery, 33, will serve
the five-year sentence after he
completes a 46-month prison
term for an unrelated convic-
tion in New York.

Under an agreement with
the government, he pleaded
guilty in July to possession and
distribution of more than 100
grams of heroin. He received
the minimum term under fed-
eral sentencing guidelines.

A prosecutor described
Montgomery’s athletic skills as
“super-human,” but said he
had squandered his talent and
the acclaim and the money that
came with it. Montgomery won
an Olympic gold medal in the
400-meter relay at the 2000
games and a silver in the same
event four years earlier. A dop-
ing scandal wiped his achieve-
ments from the books.

In a nearly empty court-
room, Montgomery accepted
his sentence accompanied only
by his lawyer, James Brocco-
letti. His parents and siblings
traveled in a van from South
Carolina for the sentencing, but
did not arrive before the 20-
minute ‘hearing ended, Broc-
coletti said.

“What we find here is some-
one who has wrecked his life,”
the prosecutor, Eric M. Hurt,
told the court. ;

He noted that Montgomery’s
heroin arrest came as he await-
ed sentencing on a check-kiting
scheme that ultimately sent

him to prison.

“He has chosen to ignore
every benefit given to him,”
Hurt said.

Montgomery, hands clasped
behind his back, softly
addressed Friedman.

“T just want to say I’ve very
sorry for what I’ve done,” he
told the judge. “I’m sorry to
ay ‘community and my fami-
y.”

Friedman ordered five years

of supervised release and drug
testing after Montgomery
serves his heroin sentence. He
also called Montgomery “total-
ly irresponsible” for fathering
four children with four differ-
ent women, including fellow
disgraced Olympian Marion
Jones. ‘ "
Montgomery’s heroin prose-
cution is based on four drug
sales he made in 2007 and 2008
in Norfolk and Virginia Beach.
A Drug Enforcement Agency
informant made buys that were
either electronically video-
taped, tape-recorded or wit-

nessed by agents, according to |

court records.

Montgomery’s Olympic
medals and his world-record
9.78-second performance in the
100-meter dash were wiped
clean after he was linked to the
investigation of BALCO, the
West Coast lab at the center
of the steroid scandal in sports.
He also was banned from track
for two years.

While he never tested posi-
tive for drugs, he retired in
December 2005 after the ban
was imposed.

Last year, he admitted help-
ing his former coach, Olympic
champion Steve Riddick, and
others cash $1.7 million in
stolen and counterfeit checks.

Riddick is serving a five-year
prison term. Montgomery’s for-
m.r companion, Jones, is serv-
ing a six-month prison sentence
for lying to investigators about
the check-fraud scam and using
steroids.

THE stage has been set for the rising
young stars to strut their stuff in the
annual Catholic Diocesan Primary
Schools basketball tournament.

Thé popular tournament that show-
“ cases six competitive teams from the
Catholic Primary Schools will get
underway on Monday, October 20.

Last year, the St Thomas Sparks,
coached by Nkomo Ferguson, turned
the tables on St Bede’s Crushers when
it counted the most to win the title in
the best-of-three championship series.



St Bede’s, coached by Donnie Cul-
mer, and Freemantle posted a 5-0 win-
loss record to finish in the top spot at
the end of the regular season. St
Thomas More suffered their only defeat
at the hands of St Bede’s.

This year, the two championship
teams won’t square off in the season
opener. Instead, St Thomas More will
play host to Xaviers, coached by Nelson
“Mandella” Joseph.

Larry Wilson, former vice president
of the Bahamas Basketball Federation
and now treasurer of the Bahamas
Olympic Association, will deliver the
keynote address during the brief cere-
monies to kick off the season.

League co-ordinator Patricia Coakley

. said this should be another competi-

tive season to watch.

“TI know the teams have been prac-
ticing a lot. | haven’t seen any of them,”
she stated. “I’m sure it’s going to be
competitive because all of the teams
want to win.”

There is one new addition to the
league with Our Lady’s Blue Flames
acquiring the services of Rohan Parks,
who came over from St Vincent De
Paul in Grand Bahama.

“T don’t know what their team look
like, but I know they have been work-
ing very hard and they are eager to play
under coach Parks,” Coakley noted.

This summer, Coakley said a lot of
the coaches encouraged their players

to participate in some of the basket-

ball camps that were held and they have
indicated that they are quite enthused
about their level of play since they
returned to school.

One of the schools to watch is St
Cecilia’s Strikers, whose coach Leo
Delaney has not settled in after getting
his feet wet last year when he was trans-
ferred from St Thomas More in a swipe
with Ferguson.

Delaney has had an impressive
record at St Thomas, who along with St
Bede’s, has won more titles than any of
the other schools in the league.

Prime Minister Hubert Ingra- ©
ham afterwards, the athletes
will go on an island-hopping
trip from Wednesday to Fri-
day.

On their return, they will
gear up for the national awards
banquet when the Bahamas
Government will present the
athletes with their cash incen-
tives and other gifts that they
will receive for their achieve-
ments.

The athletes — some will be
getting back to college and oth-
ers starting their preparation:

Mexico
expects
tougher
match

against
Jamaica

@ By ANTHONY FOSTER
Associated Press Writer






























KINGSTON, Jamaica
(AP) — As expected, Mexi-
co is on the verge of clinch-
ing a place in the last round
of CONCACAF World Cup
qualifying.

A win at Jamaica on Sat-
urday would put Mexico into
the next round.

The Mexicans came away
3-0 winners in a home match
with Jamaica, but anticipate
a harder test this time
around.

“It is very difficult to
understand how Jamaica will
play,” Mexico coach Sven-
Goran Eriksson said. “The
truth is, it is complicated.”

After three matches, Mex-
ico leads the four-team
Group 2 with nine points,
three ahead of Honduras.
Canada and Jamaica drew 1-
1 and have one point each.

Since losing to Mexico,
Jamaica has made several
changes, included firing
Rene Simoes as head coach
and replacing him with inter-
im coach Theodore Whit-
more.

“We know that he (Whit-
more) has called new players
who were not a part of the
first set of games; therefore
they are a rival we know
very little about,” Eriksson
said. é

Giovani dos Santos, Car-
los Vela and Rafael Mar-
quez will lead Mexico’s bid
for victory. “I think we wil
secure qualification aga‘nst
Jamaica,” the Swede added.
“After that I think the game
against Canada wit be very
easy, although al? 23 players
are in consideration for the
games.”

Whitmore believes his
squad, led by Jamal Ryce-
Campbell, Ricardo Fuller,
Luton Shelton and Damion
Stewart, is capable of beat-
ing Mexico. “We're gunning
for those three points and
nothing less,” Whitmore
said. “Nothing less will be
tolerated come Saturday,
and I think the players have
given me the encouragement
that they can take these
three valuable points.”

RBC opens new branch in

ABACO |

THE Royal Bank of Canada this week
unveiled a $1.1 million investment in Abaco
with the opening of its newest branch office.

RBC has had a presence in Abaco since
1988 and has been serving people in the
Bahamas for the past 100 years.

The first branch in Marsh Harbour was
around 2,400 square feet, but RBC’s new
home is nearly three times this size and
demonstrates the bank’s growth in that com-
munity.

Construction for the new banking centre
began in early 2007 and was completed in
September, 2008.

Vice-president and country head of RBC
Nathaniel Beneby said this branch opening
represents yet another historic event in the
long partnership between RBC andthe |
Bahamas, in particular the community of
Abaco.

“This year will make a century since we
began serving clients in the Bahamas,” he '
said.

“We opened our first office in Abaco
exactly 20 years ago, so it is fitting that today
we are relocating our main Abaco branch to
a new and grander facility.

“We are proud to have become a fixture in

this community and to continue serving
clients in this vital community.”

Head of Caribbean Banking for RBC
Ross McDonald added: “RBC’s recent
acquisition of RBTT makes RBC Royal
Bank of Canada one of the largest financial
institutions in the Caribbean. “But more
than size, our goal is to be number one in

client service and satisfaction. As part of this

community, we will continue invest in and
give back to Abaco and the people who live
and work here,” he said.

In keeping with RBC’s commitment to
assist the communities where the bank does
business, a number of special presentations
were made.

Cheques were presented to two organisa-
tions in Abaco. The first donation was made
to Every Child Counts, the Abaco-based
school that supports the learning of children
with special needs.

The second was presented to support the
ongoing needs at Central Abaco Primary
School...

“With this new and expanded office RBC
has the capacity to continue its long and
prosperous partnership with the Abaco com-
munity and RBC’s continued growth in the
Bahamas,” said Joycé Riviere, RBC’s area
manager for Family Islands.



WENDY Craigg, governor for the Central
Bank of the Bahamas, cuts the ribbon at the
opening of RBC’s new branch in Marsh Har-
bour, Abaco, as Ross McDonald, head of
Caribbean Banking; Nathaniel Beneby, vice-
president and country head, Bahamas, Royal

Mr Cephas Cooper, senior island administra-
tor, Central Abaco, looks on.



Sandals Royal Bahamian, one of
the Caribbean's leading wedding
destinations, enhanced its creden-
tials with the unveiling of a new
wedding setting - The Grand

Bougainvillea Gazebo.

General manager Bob Keesler was joined
at the ribbon cutting by the resort’s wedding
team and local minister Reverend Dewitt
Hutcheson, who marked the opening with a

short prayer.

The Grand Bougainvillea Gazebo, aptly
named after the vibrant Bahamian garden in
which it is nestled, was constructed from
white marble and accommodates up to 30
_ guests in the surrounding area, compliment-
ing the resort’s current wedding locations.

Mr Keesler said: “We are delighted to
open up this beautiful setting to both the
people of the Bahamas and our visiting

guests.

“The Bahamas is well-renowned for its

' golden beaches, crystal-clear waters and lush,
colorful gardens and we are pleased to offer
all three with the unforgettable wedding

locations we have at our resort.”

Stapledon School
holds special
assembly to
honour parents

UNDER the theme “Parents and Teach-
ers as Partners”, the Stapledon School held
a special assembly in honour of parents.

The goal of the assembly was to encour-
age parents to become more involved in
the lives of their children by taking an active
interest in what they do at school.

Bringing remarks on behalf of Minister of
Education Carl Bethel was director of high-
er education and lifelong learning, Dr Leon
Higgs.

Dr Higgs said that students win when
the home, school and church come togeth-
er.

He commended the staff for taking time
to express gratitude to parents, and indi-
cated that the partnership was beneficial to
the students and the school.

Dr Higgs explained the value of forming
partnerships, indicating that the Ministry of
Education in collaboration with the Nation-
al Commission on Special Education
(NCOSE), and the Inter-American Devel-
opment Bank (IDB), is working to interest
the public in providing better opportunities
for persons with disabilities, and raising
the quality of special education pro-
grammes.

In conclusion, Dr Higgs thanked the prin-
cipal Angela Butler, along with the Staple-
don family, and asked them to continue to
collaborate with parents so that every child
may have the opportunity to learn.

The first piece was a robust execution of “Now

Thanks We all Our God” by Johnson Sebastian
: Bach.

It was in this work that he demonstrated his obvi-

ous flare for organ playing.

The tune was prominently heard over the back-

ground of intricate and clearly articulated passage
? work.

The melody was interestingly interspersed with

i episodes.

It showed the flamboyant side of its arranger Vir-

gil Fox, the virtuoso organist.

The acoustics in the church were ideal and none of

the clarity of the articulation was lost.

This polished delivery set the pace for the rest of

the performance.

Following this, was a fitting contrast, the “Adagio”

from the “Toccata, Adagio and Fugue in C major”
: also by the same composer.

After a brief dissertation about the work and

establishing a rapport with the audience, Dr Jackson
: performed this piece.

This is a melancholic work that typified others

like Bach’s “Air on a G string.”

Again it was proficient in execution and accurate,

but I thought this piece could have been a little
: more flowing like the aforementioned work.

Dr Jackson’s gift for human relations was in evi-

dence when he invited the audience to participate by
: clapping to the rhythms of the of the “Fugue a la
:; Gigue” by Bach.

We were able to recognise the melody as it reoc-

? curred, becoming grander and grander with each
: successive hearing.

His precise playing and the acoustics made it eas-

In the “Carillon de Westminster” by Louis Vierne,

everybody was able to recognise the London:chimes’
: melody played over the fast-moving notes.

The audience enjoyed the different sound tex-

tures that he was able to get with the playing of the
: popular tune.

The second section was virtuostic in the co-ordi-

nation of both'the hands andthe feet: « u

The following piece, the “Fantasiein E-flat” which

he played just before the interval, was aptly: placed,

It is typical of many of Saint Saens’s works. He is

: playful, light, humorous and whimsical, especially in
: his solo piano works and piano concerti. This work
: is quite pretty and the organist brought out the com-
; poser’s nature. The second part was more rousing in
: contrast.

After the interval, the “Tuba Tune in D major” by

CS Lang begun with a burst of energy.

Dr Jackson went from manual to manual, demon-

: strating the different shades and colours of the work.

In the “Final in B flat major” by César Frank, a

solemn melody begun in the pedals and was inter-
: woven through the piece.

He did a good job in switching from the melody in

the pedals to the manuals without breaking the con-
: tinuity at any point.

This work was quite involved musically and tech-

nically and in both aspects the performer proved
: himself worthy.

Next, we had a reprieve with “Entry of Tore-

: adors” from “Carmen” by George Bizet which was
? more popular and lighter.

The performer executed this with very crisp stac-

catos in the left hand and a delightful melody in the
; right hand capturing the festive mood of the event.

I think that the audience readily took to this work

i because of its familiarity and its immediate appeal.

He ended the programme with “Sortie or Organ

in E-flat major” by Louis J A Lefebure-Wely.

This composer was arguably the most celebrated

: organist of his time and gave the audience what
: they wanted to hear — dazzling improvisations
i according to the fashionable style of that time.

One can see why Dr Jackson wanted to leave this

: impressive display of fireworks for the final piece in
; the programme.

He had enough energy to bring the message

: across.

The encore, “The Winder Toccata from the Sth

: Symphony” was a veritable tour de force and not
: once did the stamina of the performer seem to dimin-
: ish. This toccata is a festive work usually played at
: weddings or at Easter time, celebrating the resur-
: rection of Jesus Christ.

Dr Jackson certainly captured the joyous mood of

the event with a very pretty tune which we kept
: hearing in different guises amidst a rapid moving,
: clear background with arpeggios. There was also a
: continuous three note rhythmic motive which also
: sustained interest.

This show-stopper came to a conclusion with sev-

: eral grand and stately chords.

Lam sure that this recital proved a gratifying expe-

: rience for the entire audience.

There was not one person that was not satisfied.
What was very impressive about Dr Jackson was

: the way he effortlessly executed the challenging
: pieces in the second half of the programme and at the
? end of the evening was unfazed by it all.

His physical and mental stamina are commend-

It is hoped that Bahamians will observe that the

: islands in the region like Barbados, Trinidad and
:; Jamaica are not content to produce just enough to
:; cope, but are going to the extreme limits of their
: potential.

They are examples of what can be done in the

: realm of classical music regardless of ethnicity,

Bahamians who have a similar kind of potential
need to realise that there is no viable culture that is

; monolithic.

They need to know that their callings are very

: individualistic and pursue them.

What this nation needs to do is bring out more of

; the younger and receptive minds.

They must imbibe such wonderful disntavs of tal
