AG dismisses excuses of some Supreme

ATTORNEY General Michael Barnett dis-
missed excuses by some employees of the
Supreme Court Registry who tried to impede
the public's right to obtain copies of writs filed

Despite the efforts of some civil servants to,
deny The Tribune the right to obtain copies
of the writs — which are public record — The
Tribune was able to see the documents and
bring our readers a front-page story of gov-
ernment's attempt to retrieve millions of dollars
in taxes, which it claims is owed to it by Glob-
al United.

Mr Barnett, who is ‘also Minister of Legal Affairs, has invited The Tri-
bune to present a letter of complaint to The Supreme Court Registrar
after some public servants there attempted to contravene Order 60,
Rule Three of the Supreme Court's regulations. '

"If you look at the rules of the Supreme Court, it clearly states that
those (writs) ate public record," he said.

HARBOUR Island hotels suffered for
three days last week when a combined fail-
ure of landline phone and internet service
left them “stranded”, without any means

_ of receiving bookings for rooms or dining.

A day in, the communications blackout
extended to cable television after dredging
activities in the harbour allegedly cut the
cable line from Eleuthera to the island, a
less serious disturbance which nonetheless
left ’Brilanders frustrated.

Tracy Barry, owner of The Landing hotel
and restaurant on Harbour Island, was light-

. hearted about the whole affair, saying she

accepts that “human error” happens, but
wonders if it was a consequence of care-
lessness.

“It disabled everything! Before, if the
telephone went down, you might be ‘able to
use the internet to call other people, but
then when the internet went down we were
like ‘Wow, the things we take for granted!’

“Tf they called our hotel to make a reser-
vation it didn’t seem like we were answering
but, thankfully, everywhere else they called
it was the same thing!” she laughed.

Ms Barry said she heard the problem
stemmed from a dredging accident in the
harbour. “You’ve got to wonder if they
checked if (the cables) were there,” she
said. Staff at other major hotels on the pop-
ular Eleutheran destination — where

kept up with the island’s tourism and pop-
ulation expansion in recent years — said
the shutdown caused them to lose precious
business in an already difficult economic
climate. One hotel representative, who
wished to, remain anonymous, said: “It did
some damage to us because we couldn’t
receive calls to make reservations for the
past few days. So we never knew if anyone
wanted to come.’

“The phone service was ridiculous,”
added an employee at another high-end
Harbour Island property. “We couldn’t
receive any calls for dinner or hotel reser-
vations. No-one could call out, our guests
‘couldn’t make calls. oleh

“Most-of our dinner reservations we
would usually book over the telephone, so
we didn’t receive any calls and we didn’t
have any bookings. Sometimes people
would come in and say they thought we
were closed.”

Hoteliers and other Disiie es that rely

sitting on their hands until the service

_ But none of those who The Tribune
spoke with were certain if the cause of the
cable shutdown was the same as what had
cut-off phone and internet a day earlier,
with this-in itself a source of frustration.

Mr Wisdom said that BFF “took a

THE government says it has
developed and already begun to
implement a “measured and real-
istic national strategic plan” to
buffer the economy from some of
the challenges facing the United
States and the world.

Prime Minister Hubert Ingra-
ham noted that government spend-
ing can provide an “important

, stimulus”. to. the economy. How-

ever, he said, capital expenditure
plans may have to be revisited if
revenue performance turns out to
be “particularly weak”.
Additionally, the government
will be reviewing its capital invest-
ment programme to “accelerate
those projects that would con-

tribute most” to dealing with the ©

emerging unemployment problem.

He said this will include most if
not all of the following:

Bahamas avoids storm damage

WITH Tropical Storm Paloma having downgraded to a weak area of
low pressure on Sunday, islands in the northeast Bahamas nEpoueG
scattered showers but-no flooding or damage.

Margaret Symonette, assistant administrator of Crooked Island, said
that though residents were prepared for the worst, they were glad to

receive news of the storm dissipating.

“We were expecting for the ponds to overflow because of them being
situated in low lying areas, especially in the Colonel Hill area, Spring

Point, and Majors Cay, but luckily none of that happened,”

she said. -

According to assistant administrator Ellen Newton in Georgetown,
Exuma, there was far less storm activity on the island than expected.

Mrs Newton said; ““We had a lot of rain, but that’s about it, so other
than that we didn’t have bad weather per se.’

She said though some water settled in the Georgetown area, dice were
no other concerns throughout the island.

MICA MP V Alfred Gray confirmed that with other islands in his con-
stituency receiving no notable damage, it is expected that repairs from
Tropical Storm Hanna and Hurricane Ike will be completed by the end

of November.

With the Atlantic Hurricane Season ending on November 30, officials:

at the meteorology office say it is too early to say whether Paloma — the
sixteenth named storm for the 2008 hurricane season — will be the last.

According to forecaster Arnold King of the metec tology office: “It’s
_ pretty late in the season now, but it’s.still too.early to say whether we will

see another storm.”

Cemetery graves are

RELATIVES of those buried

i at the Eastern \Cemetery off

Shirley. Street, adjoining St
Matthew’s cemetery, were
shocked to see the condition of
graves, which are littered with
garbage from vagrants living
among the tombstones.
Blankets, empty juice cartons,
forks, used toilet tissues and items

‘of dirty clothing were strewn on

several graves. There’ was also
evidence of cooking utensils.
Many tombs had been ‘soiled
with human faeces by those living
among the dead.
‘Roy Sands, a grave digger at

‘the Eastern Cemetery for more

than 20-years, said it is not

} «uncommon to find persons disre-
i specting the graveyard. He said

this type of thing had been going
on for a long time.
“Many times I come out here, I

‘ meet people laying down sleeping

in the graveyard. In the day time
you may find them sitting up on
the graves or laying on them
asleep, especially in this grave
yard,” he said.

Mr Sands ‘said he would like to .

see more security at the ceme-
tery.

“The government graveyards
are closed at 6pm and what has
happened on many occasions is
that those who sleep in the grave-
yard jump over the wall and find

- a grave. If they had better securi- -

ty of the grounds, I think people
would not be living here and leav-

He added: “A number of other
public sector projects, including
the development of public recre-
ational spaces, will also be under-
taken. The Bahamas.com website

both more attractive and interac-
tive. We are significantly increasing

Increased promotional initia-
tives are also underway in the UK
and Canada and public relations
efforts are being pursued in Asia

Bahamas to benefit when the econ-
omy improves in those regions.

However, Mr Ingraham warned,
that even the best pump in the
world is of little value “if there is
no water in the well”.

President-elect visits his White House

YESTERDAY morning President-elect
Barack Obama boarded a chartered Amer-
ican Airlines plane sent to Chicago for him
by President George Bush to fly him to
Washington for his first introduction to a
White House that from January 20, 2009
will be his home for the next four years.

While the president and president-elect
talked about the future of the nation, Lau-
ra Bush, Washington’s first lady for the
past eight years, introduced the new first-

* lady-to-be — Michelle Obama — to her
* new home.

President George Bush and his gracious
wife were determined to make the transi-
tion for the president-elect and his wife as
smooth as possible. In fact the meeting was
historic, not only to show a troubled world
how quickly partisan politics can be put
aside for the good of a nation, but to lead
the way in drawing all Americans together
as one people to rebuild their broken coun-
try.

America — a nation of diverse races
and cultures — is truly a beacon of hope. In
little more than 200 years it has been able
to take Europe’s tired, “huddled masses”
and black African slaves — and after a
long, heartbreaking and often violent strug-
gle — build a united nation — a United

States of America. This is something that.

after centuries Europeans still have not
been able to do.

In his victory speech President-elect
Obama expressed it eloquently: .

“If there is anyone out there who still
doubts that America is a place where all
things are possible; who still wonders if
the dream of our founders is alive in our
time; who still questions the power of our
democracy, tonight is your answer.”

“It’s the answer,” he told the nation,
“that led those who have been told for so
-long by so many to be cynical, and fearful,

and doubtful of what we can achieve to: °

put their hands on the arc of history and
bend it once more toward the hope of a
better day.”

As President- elect Obama boarded the
aircraft for Washington yesterday we
thought of another.time and another pres-
ident-elect who in November 1860 took a
slow train journey from Springfield, Illi-
nois for Washington and his Inauguration

Day. This president, a Republican, also
had race as an albatross around his neck.
“Honest Abe” Lincoln was an abolitionist
— he strenuously objected to slavery, and
saw the evil in one man being a chattel to

another. In his famous House Divided "

speech he predicted:
““A house divided against itself cannot

stand.’ I believe this government cannot .

endure permanently half slave and half
free. Ido not expect the Union to be dis-
solved — I do not expect the house to fall

— but I do expect it will cease to be divid-

ed. It will become all one thing, or all the
other.”

Met by jubilant crowds at every whistle
stop along the way to. the White. House,
an unsettling report surfaced as his train
neared Baltimore. There was a plot to kill
him. Much against his will — he didn’t
want the indignity of being called a coward
— he bowed to the orders of his security.
His train’s timetable was changed. It
crawled through Maryland in the dead of
night, reaching Baltimore at 3.30am. At 6

o’clock in the morning Lincoln stepped off.

the train in Washington. “Plums delivered
nuts safely” was the code sent back to
headquarters to report his safe arrival. Lin-
coln, a Republican, had crept into a Demo-
cratic Washington, unannounced. |

‘Yesterday — 148 years later — a Demo-
cratic president-elect, a black man, stepped
off a plane in broad daylight to be wel-
comed by a Republican president, a white
man, to. a White House from which he
would direct the‘nation. And in Lincoln’s
prophetic words the moment Bush and
Obama’s hands met the nation’s house
ceased to be divided.

“Tf we could first:know where we are,
and whither we are tending, we could bet-
ter judge what to do, and how to do it,” said
Lincoln. Lincoln faced a country still stag-
gering under the panic of the previous year
with bank failures, tumbling stocks, and

property values shrinking.

President-elect Obama faces the same
problem, the only distinction is that he has

_competent advisers and is supported by a

united nation. With his defiant battle cry —
“Yes, we can!” — there is every reason to
hope that with time he can eventually get
the ship of state back on even keel.



This is a modest
economic stimulus
package proposal

EDITOR, The Tribune.

All indications are that we are

headed for a global recession and
history, has taught us that sucha
downturn can last between eigh-
teen and thirty-six months so a
fairly comprehensive economic
stimulus package is always nec-
essary to navigate a country
through these challenging times.

This has to be driven by the
government for three reasons.
Firstly, “the happiness and pros-
perity of our citizens ...” according
to Thomas Jefferson and this is
true today as it was back in 1811.

Secondly, the government is
the legal guardian of market effi-
ciency and thirdly, the primary
goal of the firm (or the private
sector) is to maximize sharehold-
er value, not the happiness and
prosperity of the citizenry.

The government cannot rely
on the private sector to lead this
charge.

To offer relief on consump-
tion items, part of the $131 mil-
lion in tax concession given to
businesses (as part of the revital-
ization act) should be repealed
and part of the sweeping and pre-
cipitous customs duties increases
and excise taxes should be rolled
back. This will provide balance
in priming the country's econom-
ic pump.

The. PM did not say that the
excise taxes and the current duty
and stamp tax regimes will
increase government revenue by
10 per cent over 2007 figures or
some $146 million.

How is this possible when the
economic growth for this fiscal
year is pegged at 2 per cent and
the government only collects 20
cents out of every dollar generat-
ed in the Bahamian economy?

At 2 per cent growth rate the
government should realize $28
million in revenue increase over

. 2007.

This was possible only through
sweeping tax increases that will
amount to $250 million per
annum or a cool $1 billion over
the next four years. While I
appreciate the government's strat-
egy of avoiding deficit spending,
the social cost to the country is
too great as poverty, crime and
general loss of hope will increase.

Asking the taxpayers to cough
up $1 billion over the next four

. years is a bit much. We must

remember that the consumers

represent the other ‘half of the

supply and demand equation.
They need disposable income to
support businesses.

The single largest-investment
most Bahamians make is in their
homes and every effort should be
made to assist them in keeping
it. Through a “Community Rein-
vestment Act”, the government
should make available to home
owners mortgage relief'in the
amount of $100 million for a peri-
od of one year. For example,
qualified and struggling home
owners can borrow sufficient
money from the government to

pay off the arrears of their mort-
gage and to cover 50 per cent of
their mortgage payments for’ 12
months. For 12 months thé home-
owner pays 50 per cent of the
original mortgage payment and
the interest on the government.
When economic conditions
improve, the government can eas-
ily sell the debt to commercial
banks (the holder of the mort-
gage). So a homeowner who pays

$1,000 per month will pay $500 .

to the bank and interest to the
government.

This programme could put sev-
eral hundred dollars in the pock-
ets of literally thousands of home-
owners, positively impacting
household income, savings, and
buying power.

This goes a long way in buying
groceries, fuel, and utilities. As
homes in the Bahamas rarely lose
their value and appreciate in val-
ue during times of plenty, the gov-

* ernment.can actually make mon-

ey on this deal.

A variation of this was suc-
cessfully

implemented by
Franklin Roosevelt as part of his
New Deal during the Great
Depression of the 1930's. Lest we
forget, all economies are driven
by credit.

On the issue of energy relief

ment is to do this, it should
reduce the tax on imported diesel
by 10 per cent from 27.5 pre cent
to 24.5 per cent. This will translate
into some $8.0 million being
passed on to persons in the
tourism, construction, and trans-
portation industries.

As a long term strategy, the
government should seriously con-
sider unemployment insurance,
especially for workers in the fish-
ing, farming, tourism, and con-
struction industries. Since our
economy is intrinsically linked to
the United States and US reces-
sions usually last between six and
eight months, the Bahamas could
consider providing unemploy-
ment benefits for 32 weeks. Leg-
islation could empower the cabi-
net to extend it to 36 weeks and
any period beyond that should
require parliamentary approval.

In these challenging economic
times, the government must lead
the way in stimulating the econo-
my. This must include fiscal aus-
terity, an aggressive capital devel-
opment programme, and a bal-
anced tax relief initiative.

Businesses do supply goods

_ and services and generate jobs,

but if the consumer lacks confi-
dence and disposable income who
will the businesses sell to?

This is a modest economic

‘stimulus package proposal.

John Marquis - a champion

for freedom of the press!.

CROSSING the Atlantic, like many before him, instead of bringing
the sword or the slaves, he brought the pen and freedom of the press!

As a young journalist from England, entering the stage on Bahami-
an soil, where the era of change-had turned the page in political his-
tory, John Marquis was immediately sucked into the vortex of the
political culture, only to find that the relics of oppression of the past had
changed the colour of their faces and the method of oppression.

He held on to his pen, like a great sword, and like a swashbuckler

“ swung into motion.

The late, great Sir Etienne Dupuch and The Tribune, champion
among champions, welcomed the young, brave and unique reporter
John Marquis. Many .racial slurs were dumped upon him for calling an
ace an ace, and a spade a spade. ;

For the sake of truth and a free press he was forced out of the
Bahamas. Crossing the Atlantic ocean in grief - knowing he left behind
a people paralysed by fear. Bahamian history would wheel him in |
once more: As Martin Luther King once said: “Truth crushed to the
ground will rise again!” Now here he is again - turning yet another page
in Bahamian journalistic history

As he is about to close the book for the last time - where he again
called an ace an ace, a spade a spade or a jack a jack, in spite of many
who cried out for his removal from these shores, nevertheless, still he
stood and held on to his pen (with the daughter of the late, great Sir Eti-
enne Dupuch, Eileen Dupuch Carron), with the-very essence of The
Tribune motto:- “Nullius addictus iurare in verba magistri - (being
bound to swear to the dogmas of no master)!

: As I understand, John Marquis will be leaving the Bahamas in six
months to cross the Atlantic Ocean once more! “We may stand on the
sands of time, but we can’t hold back the tide!”

To all the reading public, I hope you follow suit and give the man his
“tribute” while he is still with us. I’m certain that it will take more than
six months if everyone who appreciated his Insight, truth and coura-
geous spirit for freedom of the press!

© In brief.
Call for new
school in
West Grand
Bahama

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



FREEPORT - In the wake of
the health and environmental
concerns at the Eight Mile Rock
High School, some stakeholders
believe that a new school should
be constructed at a new site in
West Grand Bahama.

Troy Garvey, PTA president
at the school, said Eight Mile
Rock is the largest settlement in
the country and a new high
school is needed. .

He said that the current cam-
pus is unsuitable and has been
plagued by constant environ-
mental problems, despite
repeated repair works over the
years.

The issues at the school came
to a head last month when sev-
eral classrooms were declared
unfit for use as a result of exten-
sive rodent, pigeon, bat, and
mould infestations.

There were also complaints of
unpleasant odours due to sewer
back-ups in the bathrooms.

The school was closed for
three weeks after students and
teachers became ill. Since then,
health screenings have been
held and the school has been
deemed safe by environmental
officials — except for four class-
rooms which remain closed.

Alternative accommodations
have been arranged for some
students at the Stephen’s Parish
Hall, Bethel Deliverance
Church, and in the school’s

gymnasium.

‘Mr Garvey, who is known as
an outspoken community
activist and resident of Eight
Mile Rock, said a new school
could be built further west.

He also noted that the current
school campus could be used as
a technical and vocational facili-
ty for EMR students.

.“Thave children going to this
school, I think the students here
deserve to have a new school,”

he told Education Minister Carl |

Bethel.

Bahamas Union of Teachers
President Belinda Wilson said
while alternative accommoda-
tions are working out well for
the time being, the government
needs to look closely at the
school campus.

“Tn the long run, there has to
’ be acloser look at EMRHS
with a view for expansion and
going to a new site,” she said.

Although many of the teach-
ers at the school agreed with Mr
Garvey, Minister Carl Bethel
said he does not think it is possi-
ble to relocate the school.

“The reason for the location
of the high school on this partic-
ular site has to do with the pop-
ulation. The current school was

put here for a reason because of,

its centralised location,” he said.

“If there is a need for a pro-
gramme of redevelopment and
renewal that over time will give
you the same impact, that is
something we can certainly look
at in terms of overtime adding
classroom blocks, taking others
out, and reconfiguring the site.

“But the difficulty of moving

_ the high school out of Eight
Mile Rock would result in sig-
nificantly higher recurrent costs,
in terms of having to bus the
bulk of your students to a more
remote location,” he said.

Mr Bethel said that the min-
istry has presented to the union
the fourth draft of a 10-year
strategic plan to address how it
can best serve “far flung” com-
munities in the country.

“What we are working on is
how we can put schools in a
more centralised location
because it is a question that
affects other districts, as well as
the western side of Grand °
Bahama,” he said.

November fuel
surcharge drops
in Grand Bahama

THE Grand Bahama Pow-
er Company announced yes-
terday that the fuel surcharge
for November has dropped to .
16.4 cents, a drop of eight
cents per kwh since Septem-
ber 2008.

This trend is consistent with
the decline in the market price
for oil, the company said, _~
adding that the reduction rep-
resents a decline of over 30
per cent since September.

“Grand Bahama Power
Company purchases fuel in
bulk to reduce costs and to
maintain a consistent supply
for the island’s needs.

The cost of the fuel is
pegged to the market price
and the time of purchase,”
noted the company in a state-
ment.

Teacher: 30 per cent of students suffer





from undiagnosed learning difficulties

@ By LLOYD ALLEN
Tribune Staff Reporter

A SIGNIFICANT number of students in
the Bahamas may be suffering from undi-
agnosed learning disgrders — a fact which
some believe could be a major factor in
the under-performance of the education
system.

Kim Kooskalis, principal of Blairwood
Academy — a special needs school for chil-
dren suffering from learning inhibitors such
as dyslexia and attention deficit and hyper-

tension disorder (ADHD) - said that many.

of the 105 students enrolled at her school
were not diagnosed until grade four. Some
were not diagnosed until high-school.
Estimating that cases of mild to moder-
ate learning challenges exceed 30 per cent
of the overall school population, Mrs
Kooskalis says that often cases of ADHD,
dyslexia, aspergers autism, or even hearing

‘difficulties go undiagnosed due to a num-

ber of factors:
These can include denial by parents, mis-

“Parents don’t want to believe that their child
has a problem, and may think that
acknowledging it makes their child retarded. fi



diagnosis at school, or lack of concern.

“There is huge denial out there, many
parents would say ‘not my child’ — it’s a
common mentality among Bahamians. Par-
ents don’t want to believe that their child
has a problem, and may think that
acknowledging it makes their child retard-
ed, and they feel embarrassed that their
child is not functioning at the appropriate
grade level,” she said.

Mrs Kooskalis pointed out that a child
suffering from any one of these disorders
could have an above-average IQ, and only
lack the ability to learn reading skills like
other students.

She says some of the common signs of

Kim Kooskalis

learning challenges are inability to focus for
extended periods, behavioral problems,
difficulty reading and spelling, unfamiliar-
ity with spelling rules, and varied compre-
hension issues. ;

Though severe dyslexia, ADHD, or
hearing problems are usually identified
right away,:Mrs Kooskalis said mild to
moderate cases often go undetected and
end up getting worse.

Most children spend between one and
two years at her school catching up to their
grade level.

Mrs Kooskalis said more needs to be
done to identify and help children with
special needs.

Assistant director of government’s Spe-
cial Education Unit Carolynn Hall-
Knowles said when students in public
schools are identified as having a learning
disorder, they are temporarily removed to
a centre where they can learn the skills
necessary to function in a regular class-
room.

She added that students who are able
to cope with their learning challenges with-
out leaving a regular school curriculum
still face an obstacle when it comes to

national examinations.

Mrs Hall-Knowles said that for learn-
ing challenged students, there needs to be
an alternative for the BGCSE examina-
tion in particular.

She said there needs to be alternatives
for blind or mute, but otherwise intelli-
gent students, so they can realise their full
potential.

Mrs Hall-Knowles suggests oral exams
for non-readers, interpreters for deaf stu-
dents, and solo or small group testing for
those with other disorders.

Paying homage to the

Laing hails
heroes who

“ASSISTANT Commissioner of Police Eugene Cartwright lays a wreath at FREEPORT - State Minister for Finance Zhivargo Laing
Sunday’s service. paid homage to those Bahamians and the millions around the
| world who have served and died during World Wars I and II to

defend world peace.

Mr Laing said that many have paid the ultimate sacrifice with
their lives for “our freedom.”

“We must be grateful to the leaders of our nation who
fought to defend world peace”, he said on Sunday.

“Tf the outcome was different, we would be living in a far dif-
ferent world than we now live in, a world that would probably ©
have less freedom, less prosperity, and less social advance-
ments.”

Minister Laing was speaking at the annual Remembrance
Day Parade held at 3pm at Martin Town Primary School at
‘Eight Mile Rock, where students from various schools on the
island assembled for a short ceremony.

Bahamian war veteran Cecil Hepburn of Eight Mile Rock

Death toll
rises to 94

in Haiti school
collapse

@ PETIONVILLE, Haiti

U.S., FRENCH and Hait-
ian firefighters used sonar,:
cameras and dogs Monday
in the search for victims at a
collapsed Haitian school,
but as the stench of death
rose from the wreckage,
they no longer expected to
find anyone else alive,

‘ according to Associated
Press...
Three days after the con-
‘ crete building suddenly col-
lapsed during a children's
party, killing at least 94 stu-
‘dents and adults and severe-
ly injuring 150 more, Capt.
Michael Istvan of Fairfax
County, Va., said the chance
of more survivors was
remote. He also said the
death toll won't likely go
much higher. |
Several bodies were

pulled out Monday, caked in ©

concrete,dust, and radar and
cameras located several
more. —

But there have been no
indications of.survivors.since
four.children;were pulled, ;.

from the wreckage Saturday. - : ‘

morning, said Daniel Vigee,
head of a Martinique-based
French rescue team.
‘Rescuers were probing
spots where neighbors
claimed to have heard voic-
es or received cell phone
calls from trapped survivors,
without success. Finally,
before dawn Monday, they
opened up new areas to
search by tearing down a
two-story high concrete slab
that had been hanging pre-
cariously since the collapse.
Istvan's firefighters were
flown in by the U.S. Agency
for International Develop-
ment; and an eight-person
military team from the U.S.
Southern Command also
helped. They had warned

that removing the wall could -

be too dangerous to rescuers
and any potential survivors,
but Haitians removed it any-
way using hand-held power
tools as hopes dimmed.

It was unclear how many
people were in the building
when it collapsed, though
the school is believed to
have had about 500 stu-
dents. Haitian officials said -
some had time to escape
when it began to fall, and it
was not known how many
were pulled out unharmed
on Friday.

_ Some students weren't at |
the school during the col-
lapse because La Promesse
was holding a party requir-
ing a donation 25 gourdes
(63 cents) that poorer fami-
lies could not afford, said
Deputy Steven Benoit, who
represents the area in the
Chamber of Deputies.

"A lot of students had
their lives saved because
they couldn't get in," Benoit
said.

The-tragedy at the school
— built along a ravine ina
slum below a relatively
wealthy enclave near Port-
au-Prince — has brought
more attention to chronic
poverty in Haiti, where
neighborhoods rise up in
chaotic jigsaws and building
codes are widely ignored.

President Rene Preval has
made several visits to the
disaster site, blaming the
collapse on constant govern-
ment turnover and a general
disrespect for the law.

"There is a code already,
but they don't follow it.
What we need is political
stability," Preval told the
AP.

Govt to launcha —

jobless relief plan

FROM page one

_ confidence at an all-time low,

the government has had to
move to utilise capital expendi-
ture on major projects through-
out the country to provide some
stimulus to the domestic econo-
my.

“In light of this, my govern-
ment will put in place various

Measures to mitigate the impact

of joblessness or reduced
income. Hence, the government
is considering the implementa-
tion of a temporary unemploy-
ment assistance programme to

‘be administered by the Nation-

al Insurance Board.

“Although unemployment
benefits are not presently
offered, NIB’s primary objec-
tive is to ease the burden. My
government will, therefore,
cause to be allocated some of
the excess funds accumulated in
the Medical Benefit Branch of
the NIB Fund to provide week-
ly unemployment assistance
payments to workers who have
recently become unemployed or
placed on reduced work weeks.

“Since these payments are
being financed from the excess
in the former Industrial Benefit
Branch, the sustainability of
future pensions will not be
affected,” he said.

To access these benefits, per-
sons must have been employed
for an unspecified “minimum
number of years.” There are
also other “rules and stipula-
tions” that have yet tobe for-
mulated, prior to the introduc-
tion of this plan.

However, these “additional
measures” will be introduced as

necessary, and as the evolving
situation dictates, Mr Ingraham
said. y

“My government will contin-
ue to monitor closely ongoing
developments, ensuring that we
are properly positioned to make
the appropriate short-term
responses without damaging the
early return to our medium-
term growth path when the dan-
ger passes. In the early 1990s,
following upon the first Gulf
War when my first. administra-
tion came to office, we faced a
critical economic and social sit-
uation.

“We worked tirelessly to
reverse that situation and we
succeeded. We then dealt with
the crisis caused by the collapse
of the high-tech bubble in 2000
and the crisis caused by the ter-
rorism events of September,
2001.

“Our good management of
the people’s business during
each of these crises facilitated a
quick recovery in the years that
followed. I have no doubt that
my government has the experi-
ence and the expertise to enable
us to recover from yet another
crisis not of our making and
over which we have no control.

Bahamians can trust in our pre- -

paredness and our experience
to do what is right. God willing,
we will succeed,” he said.

Mr Ingraham promised that,
as conditions warrant, in the
weeks and months ahead he will
address the nation with updates
on the evolution of this eco-
nomic crisis - its impact upon
the country, and the effective-
ness of the government’s plans
to the meet these challenges.

All-Share Index, with only a slight increase in the third quarter.
In comparison to last year, this represents an 11.8 per cent
decline for the first two quarters and a small gain of 0.7 per cent
during the third quarter.
Mr Stubbs said the economic meltdown has the potential to
further erode consumer and investor confidence if the current

: - trend in tourism persists.

Already, the tourism downturn has had a multiplier impact on
the rest of the economy, which if it persists will leave persons
unable to meet debt repayments and create a strain on the bank-

* ing sector.

Mr Stubbs added that the international component of the
Bahamian capital markets had been adversely affected by the
international financial meltdown, with investment fund adminis-
trators reporting falling net asset values (NAVs) for the invest-
ment funds they handled as a consequence of exposure to sub-
prime mortgages and the fallout resulting from the global melt-
down.

Mr Stubbs said market participants had further reported falling
revenues as a result of shrinking assets under management.

He added that it was imperative that the Securities Commis-
sion was in a position to ensure that persons operating in the
country were fit and proper, adhered to good corporate gover-
nance principles, were not co-mingling accounts of clients with
their operating account, and that there was the appropriate dis-

_semination of information so that investors can make more
’ informed decisions.

Mr Stubbs said that in this climate the Securities Commission’s

Tole was even more important.

_He added that the Securities Commission expected to enhance
its regulatory. capabilities through the implementation of a new
Securities Industries Act and related regulations, and by the
implementation of recommendations from a recently-completed
operations review of the Commission.

“ Both the Commission and the accounting profession (specifi-
cally through BICA) are required to provide guidance and advice
to participants to the capital markets, to ensure that investors and
the public are properly informed during these uncertain and

challenging times,” he concluded.

when The Tribune asked another
clerk for the copies, the reporter
was told that when it came to "the
newspapers" there were differ-
ent rules to obtain the documents,
and that the employee was not
going to risk getting in trouble by
providing the copies.

A letter of request. subject to
approval by the Supreme Court
Registrar had to be provided
before The Tribune could obtain
copies of the writs, the clerk said.

‘After a passionate telephone
conversation with The Tribune's
news editor, who tried to explain
to the clerk that the matter was a
public record, the clerk said to
take it up'with Supreme Court |
Registrar Donna Newton.

The Tribune was unable to see

tant said to return with the letter

The letter was provided about

was told the registrar had left the

supervisor never spoke with The
Tribune, but sent word with
another clerk that the copies were
unavailable because the original
documents had pu been

However, despite this, The Tri-
bune was able to review the doc-
uments and take copious notes
from the writs, and subsequently
write Monday's lead story about
government's legal action.

ter Hubert Ingraham told the

While the obstruction at the
Supreme Court Registry opened
the way for The Tribune to sug-
gest to Mr Barnett that this was a
reason for government to swiftly
implement a Freedom of Infor-
mation Act, he said a law already
exists that allows the public access
to these documents.

"So you, as a matter of right
have the ability to see a.copy of
any writ and any judgment and
that's what the law says. The law
is very clear," he said.

On Friday, The Tribune tried
to get copies of four civil suits
filed in the Supreme Court by the

Majesty’s Prison.

It is alleged that McNeil,
sometime between Saturday,
November 17, 2007, and Sun-
day, November 18, 2007, by
means of unlawful harm,
intentionally caused the death
of Harl Taylor.

Taylor, 37, an internation-
ally-known handbag designer,
was found stabbed to death at
Mountbatten House, West
Hill Street, nearly a year ago,
two days after Dr Thaddeus
McDonald, 59, a senior acad-
emic at the College of the
Bahamas, was found blud-
geoned to death, apparently
with a clothing iron, in his
Queen Street guest house.

Despite widespread specu-
lation that the two murders
might have been related,
police have not linked them.





THE TRIBUNE



@ BY BISHOP NEIL ELLIS

| he Bahamas _ has
entered one of the

most challenging times of our
history — culturally, socially

and economically. While our.

country has weathered such
storms of life before, there are
many adult Bahamians who
have never before had to con-
front such challenges.

To mark a safe trail through
the present troubling obstacles
will require a multifaceted
approach that addresses the
whole person — mind, body
and spirit.

The way forward will also
demand the earnest and honest
participation of all Bahamians
of goodwill, especially those of
the household of faith.

The current situation afflict-
ing the United States and, con-
sequently, the Bahamas — high
gasoline prices, increased. elec-
tricity prices owing to the astro-
nomical cost of crude oil, the
mortgage crisis and declining
tourism arrivals — has been
pegged as a “financial crisis”.
Because of this, I’m concerned
that our community may search
for relief in ways dealing only
with money matters.

It is laudable that the

Bahamas government is pro-
viding welfare packages and
giving mortgage relief to fore-
stall or preyent a flood of fore-
closures like the crisis in the
United States that has left many
in a desperate search to find
shelter for their families.

- However, handouts are solu-
tions of the moment only. We
have to take the holistic
approach to hold our society
together.

It is very necessary to ‘do so,
unless we'wish to see our coun-
try spiral into hopelessness and
eventual anarchy.

We have already seen an
increasing number of Bahami-
ans working reduced days:

A way forward in
the economic crisis



“This is Bahamas’ opportunity
not to bea statistic of societal
catastrophe, but a light to our
troubled world.



and even job losses.

With the current rate of
financial downtown, there is a
high likelihood that there will
be more budget tightening and
downsizing, as businesses strug-
gle to stay afloat.

Change on this of this magni-
tude will affect the whole coun-
try, but will shake the very foun-
dations of the homes touched
directly.

I propose four main avenues
of structured, positive interven-
tions.

First of all, churches, govern-
ment agencies and the busi-
nesses most nearly affected
must activate their professional
counselling programmes.

If these do not exist, it is
essentjal to secure such services.
This is not a suggestion to be
brushed aside or taken lightly.
Professional counselling will not
only give those who are hurt-
ing a life-line to the emotional
stability. they need. to weather
the hurricane, but will also help
to prevent many from making
unwise decisions from which
there will be no turning back.

I am thankful that Mount
Tabor Full Gospel Baptist
Church has been divinely
inspired to prepare in this
regard.

Not so long ago, we launched
a multifaceted. counselling pro-
gramme, that, provides for all
married, single and

20% &

divorced persons, those who are
experiencing job and financial
crises, for example.

Our doors are open to all in
need in this regard.

Secondly, if we wish to be of

real service to our people and
country in this time of trial, we
will not do anything that will
deepen or extend the culture of
dependence and the sense of
entitlement that already afflicts
so many sectors of our popula-
tion.
- If we run food programmes,
our people should be encour-
aged to see themselves as dig-
nified partners in the venture
and not as recipients of welfare
for which they bear no respon-
sibility. .

Everyone should help in the
programme and everyone
should pay what they can, even

‘if it’s just a dollar:

In this way, the truly indigent

‘will be able to hold their heads

up and have hope.
Thirdly, we must hasten to
educate our people as to how

. to deal beneficially with a finan-

cial crisis — how to get the best
value from out spending, when
to refrain from spending, how to
cook inexpensive but nutritious
meals.

What is of great importance,
we must teach our people that it
is sometimes necessary to delay

. gratification and help them to
see the difference between |

needs and wants.

Fourthly, government,
churches and other non-gov-
ernmental agencies must co-
operate to identify a consistent
approach to our current chal-
lenges.

Bahamians often proclaim
proudly and even fiercely that
we are a Christian nation.

This is our opportunity to
give substance to our boast. We
must all be prepared to open
our hearts, our fund of wisdom,
our pockets to family, friends,
church brethren, neighbours,
colleagues, the man on the
street, the stranger within our
gates. ©

Everyone, even the poorest
among us, has something to
give, whether it be money or a
simple word of encouragement
to buoy up hope.

Finally, it is my view that the
government should cause to
happen a summit focused on
this crises.

I support the president of the
Nassau Guardian, the President
of Colina General and lawyer
John Bostwick IJ in their call
for a non-partisan national dis-
cussion. ,

We are in a season of change.
Change can bring crisis but
every crisis, every problem is
also the foundation for oppor-
tunity, a canvas upon which we
can paint new and improved sit-
uations and lives.

I call all Bahamians of faith to
prayer.

We must pray without ceas-
ing, but God asks us to do what
we can while we pray.

Even in taking action, if we
do so in the will of God, he will
be with us.

This is Bahamas’ opportunity
not to be a statistic of societal
catastrophe, but a light to our
troubled world.

The Word tells us to be
encouraged and trust in the
Lord in all _ things: and let His

». praise continually, be;in our :

mouths.

pendent Secondary Schools’ best-of-three

Yesterday at Freedom Farm, the Saints
marched past the St. Andrew’s Hurri-
canes 4-3 to sneak game one of the junior

Machines rolled past the Bluewaves 24-15

played on Wednesday, starting at 4 p.m.

lH Saints 4, Hurricanes 3: Crachad .

“This was revenge for us,” said Saints’
coach Rev. Stephen Duncombe. “Last
ear we were tied with St. Andrew’s and
St. Augustine’s College in 'the regular sea-
son, but nobody noticed us.
“This year, we wanted to prove that
we are the team to beat. This is our time
to shine.”

Laing, who helped his own cause witha .

single and run scored, said they knew that
they had the team to beat the Hurricanes

and this was just:the beginning of things to.

come.

“We will come back.in game two and
win the title,” he promised.

Weston Saunders came up with a two-
out run-producing single that plated Ian
Fox with the game winning run in the top
of the third.

Kingsway got an unearned run from

Laing in the first and Tameko Williamson —

and Cameron Mingo added two more in
the second.

St. Andrew’ s scored all of thairsune’ in:

the first inning, sparked by -Alex

. Euteneuer’s RBI single. He.along with

Morgan Sounder and Yves Reimann all

- scored in the rally.

Ashton Butler came in relief of Justin
Higgs in the second for the loss.

Coach Pat Chiarello said the Saints got
a good game from Laing and that made
the difference.

teams continue to jostle for late
season playoff seeding in prepa-
ration for the playoffs.

The St Cecilia Strikers
helped their postseason cause
with a decisive 31-16 win over
the Our Lady’s Blue Flames
yesterday on the road.

The Strikers improved.to a
3-2 record.

Despite a slow start by both
teams, St Cecilia’s got out to
an early advantage with a 6-2
lead by the end of the first
quarter.

- The Strikers reserves picked
up the defensive intensity in the
second quarter and with a
swarming defense with active
hands, limited the Flames to no
field goals in the period.

St Cecilia’s led 11-2 heading
into the halt.

With much of the starters
back on the floor in the third
quarter, the Strikers enacted a
full court trap turning good
defense into easy transition bas-
kets on the opposite end of the
floor.

Their defense dominated for
much of the half, forcing the
Flames into rushed shots and
frantic possessions.

A late scoring flurry by the
Flames brought about the
game’s final margin.

Strikers with 11 points while

ished with four.

Simon defeats Federer
Andy Murray beats Roddick

fi By PAUL ALEXANDER
Associated Press Writer

SHANGHAI, China (AP) —
Roger Federer's back was fine.
His game still needs mending.

Gilles Simon defeated Fed-
erer 4-6, 6-4, 6-3 at the Masters
Cup on Monday in the Swiss
star's first match since a sore
back forced him out of his last
tournament.

Later, Andy Murray of
Britain beat Andy Roddick of
the United States 6-4, 1-6, 6-1 in
the other Red group match.

The second-ranked Federer
said earlier he didn't know what
to expect when he played his
first round-robin match in the
season-ending event for the top
eight players.

It turned out to be flashes of
his usual brilliance, then a quick
slide downhill. Federer faltered
late in the second'set with a rash
of errors that allowed Simon to
get back into the match.

"Definitely today shots
maybe I miss I normally don't
miss," Federer said. "I think
that's just lack of practice and
just uncertainty where my back
was today. Now at least I have a
match under my belt, especially
three sets, and I hope I can play
better in the next match."

Federer withdrew from the
Paris Masters 10 days ago
because of his sore back.

"I was sort of skeptical going
into the match because the
practice sessions haven't been

hard at all," Federer said. "I
really tried to not push it at all.
So I was actually happy that the
back felt OK."

The four-time Masters Cup
winner also gave credit to
Simon, who won their only pre-

vious meeting, also in three sets,

in Toronto in July.

"The better you play, the bet-
ter he plays," Federer said.
"He's quite a unique player and
he makes you work hard and
runs very well."

Federer also lost his first
match at last year's Masters
Cup but went on to win the title.

"It's great," he said. "It's the .

only tournament where I really
have a chance after losing first
rounds."

' The ninth-ranked Simon,
added to the field when No. 1
Rafael Nadal withdrew with
knee tendinitis, started finding

‘ the lines and capitalized on Fed-

erer's slip in play in the last two
sets.

Simon ripped a backhand
crosscourt winner on break
point as Federer served at 3-4 in
the third set, then served his
seventh ace on match point.

"It's always hard to win
against Federer," Simon said.
"I know that I have to play my
best tennis. I just wanted to give
everything on the court. I

PHILADELPHIA (AP) —
Underdogs or favourites, the
New York Giants keep finding
waystowin.

Eli Manning threw two
touchdown passes, Brandon
Jacobs had two TD runs and
the Giants held on to beat the
Philadelphia Eagles 36-31 on
Sunday night and further dis-
tance themselves from the pack
in the NFL's toughest division.

If there was any doubt the
Giants rule the NFC East, the
Super Bowl champions erased
it with another hard-fought win
on the road. "This is one of the
toughest places to play," cor-
nerback Sam Madison. said.
"It's extremely tough to come
here and get a win. It wasn't a
statement game, but we needed
to win."

The Eagles had the ball at
their own 45 with 1:55 left, but Brian West-
brook was stopped by Chase Blackburn on
fourth-and-1. "It was exhilarating," Blackburn
said of the clinching tackle.

The Giants (8-1) are two games ahead of
the Washington Redskins and three in front
of the Eagles (5-4) and Dallas Cowboys. New
York is 3-0 against its division rivals, but has
only one other win against an opponent with a
winning record. :

Perhaps the Giants' easy first-half schedule
— their first eight opponents are a combined
27-44 — was a reason oddsmakers made the
Eagles a three-point favorite.

Miffed by the prognosticators' pick, the
Giants proved them wrong. They did get help
from the referees on two close calls in the sec-
ond half.

Jacobs lost the ball at the goal line on his 2-
yard TD run that made it 36-24. The Eagles
challenged, but officials upheld the play.

The Giants went ahead 27-24 two plays after
a reversed call gave them a first down at the
Eagles 3. Manning's 17-yard pass to Kevin Boss
on third-and-10 was initially ruled illegal
because he appeared to release the ball from
beyond the line of scrimmage. Replays showed
Manning's back foot was behind the line, and
Jacobs ran in from the 3 for the go-ahead score.

"I think the way the rule is written, it was
worth taking a shot at it," said Manning, who
urged Coughlin to challenge the call. "If you
have one toe on the line of scrimmage, then it's
a legal pass."

The Eagles were surprised the play was over-
turned. "I don't know what they were looking
at," defensive tackle Mike Patterson said.

Donovan McNabb had three TD passes for
the Eagles, but the Giants shut down West-
brook.

j one timeout remaining — but
they couldn't put together a

back ‘had at least 123 combined

against the Giants.

"T have to find a way of mak-
; ing the first downs," West-
brook said. "I have to do a better job."

Jacobs finished with 126 of New York's 219
yards rushing and the Giants held the ball for
almost 40 minutes.

The Eagles took a 24-20 lead on McNabb's 7-
yard TD pass to Hank Baskett on the opening
drive of the third quarter. ~

Manning led the Giants to three straight
scoring drives after throwing an interception on
the third play from scrimmage and New York

But a fumble by Jacobs helped the Eagles get
back in it. Jacobs lost the ball while hurdling
Asante Samuel as Chris Gocong delivered a
hard hit. Patterson recovered it at the Giants 44.

McNabb hit Jason Avant over the middle
for a 10-yard TD pass to cutitto17-14._.

The Eagles used a trick play to take a 7-0 lead
after Patterson's interception set them up at
the Giants 9. Patterson rumbled 21 yards after
he picked off Manning's pass for his first career
interception.

Wide receiver DeSean Jackson scored on a 9-
yard run, taking the snap out of a shotgun for-
mation with McNabb lined up wide to the left.
The Miami Dolphins rejuvenated the single
wing this season, and it was the first time the
Eagles used a variation of that gimmick offense.

Manning tossed a 17-yard TD pass to Plaxi-
co Burress to tie it at 7. Burress beat safety
Brian Dawkins, who covered the wideout

. because the Eagles sent a cornerback on a blitz.

Giants halfback Ahmad Bradshaw stripped
Quintin Demps on the kickoff and Blackburn
took it to the Eagles 13 after making the recov-
ery. Philadelphia's defense tightened up and
the Giants settled for a 27-yard field goal by
Carney.

were scattered around the near-

and one section was a sea of red

Federer appeared to take a
few points to loosen up. Then,
after wasting three break points
as Simon served at 1-1 in the
first set, he broke through for a
3-2 edge, taking the game with a
forehand that Simon couldn't
touch.

Federer staved off a break
point in the next game and fin-
ished off the set with a second-
serve ace and seemed 'to be
headed for a quick victory.

They traded early breaks in
the second set, and Simon had a
great chance to forge ahead but
squandered three break points
as Federer started to look tight
while serving at 3-4.

Federer smacked a routine

“overhead and an easy forehand

volley into the net to fall behind
0-30, then found the net again
with a swinging forehand off a
short ball at deuce, but man-
aged to hold.

Federer wasn't as lucky in his
next service game, with Simon
breaking to take the set and lev-
el the match with a great back-
hand winner after a long rally.

Federer had to rally from 0-
40 while serving at 2-3 in the
deciding set, pumping his fist
and shouting "Come on!"
Simon replicated the escape act
in the next game, with Federer
helping with two forehands that
sailed way long. Simon got the

Celtics dominate Pistons
in Iverson’s home debut

@ By LARRY LAGE
AP Sports Writer :



AUBURN HILLS, Michigan
(AP) — Allen Iverson was wel-
comed to the Motor City with a
standing ovation so loud that
the public-address announcer
couldn't be heard.

Then, the Boston Celtics qui-
eted the crowd and spoiled Iver-
son's first game at home with
the Detroit Pistons.

Tony Allen scored 12 of his
23 points in the pivotal second
quarter, lifting Boston to an 88-
76 win on Sunday night.

Iverson said he got "chill-
bumps" when he was intro-

duced and heard the roar of the |

crowd.

"That's all you want when
you get traded," said Iverson,
who has been dealt twice in two
years. "You want to get that ini-
tial feeling of how they embrace
and accept you."

A sold-out crowd stayed in
the game during a closely con-
tested first quarter before being
silenced in the second, when
Boston used four reserves to
outscore Detroit 30-10.

"That's our job," Allen said.
"If we don't come in and give
the team a lift, we aren't doing
what we are supposed to do."

The defending champions
didn't have any trouble keep-
ing their big cushion in a
rematch of the Eastern Confer-
ence finals.

Iverson finished with 10
points on 4-of-11 shooting with
four assists and four turnovers.

Detroit acquired the former
league MVP, Denver Nugget
and Philadelphia 76er last week
for All-Star point guard
Chauncey Billups, key reserve
Antonio McDyess and throw-
in Cheikh Samb. .

The Pistons fell to 0-2 with
Iverson. ,;

"I'm not up here to talk
about how long it's going to
take for everything to look
smooth," coach Mike Curry
said. "He did a lot of good
things and I'm going to encour-
age him to be even more

aggressive."

Boston coach Doc Rivers said
the Pistons will be better, but
it's going to take time.

"When you get a new play-
er, especially one that is going
to have his hands on the ball, it
changes 75 percent of your
offense," Rivers said. "The fans
don't understand how hard it is
to change a point guard in the
middle of a season, but it is
tough. It changes everything."

The Pistons miss Billups' abil-
ity to run the offense and:
McDyess' shooting touch off
the bench. McDyess will be
bought out of his contract,
according to his agent Andy
Miller, and the Pistons desper-
ately need the power forward
back.

The Celtics had enough to

eliminate Detroit in Game 6 of -

the conference finals on its
home court and clearly seemed
to be the better team again.

Boston didn't even need all
of its stars to shine in the easy
win.

Ray Allen had 17 points,
Kevin Garnett scored eight on
4-of-15 shooting and Paul Pierce
added seven on 3-of-10 shoot-
ing. Rajon Rondo scored 13
points and Eddie House had
eight points as one of four
reserves with at least six points
for the Celtics.

"Our bench has been phe-
nomenal," Rivers said. "We've
started out slow in three or four
games, but the energy of the
bench has been tremendous.
There isn't one guy that carries
them." :

Detroit's Tayshaun Prince
had 23 points and eight
rebounds.

"Through all of this, I love
how Tayshaun is staying aggres-
sive," Curry said.

Rasheed, Wallace had 10

points on 4-of-17 shooting and

11 rebounds. Reserve Will
Bynum added 11 points.
Richard Hamilton, who was
0-for-8, scored just three points
on free throws.
"They do a good job of trap-
ping Rip," Curry said. "They

@ By STEVEN WINE
AP Sports Writer

DAVIE, Florida (AP) — The
Miami Dolphins clung to a one-
point lead early in the fourth
quarter when quarterback Chad
Pennington took the field for a
series he expected to be pivotal.

"In the huddle I said, "This is
the drive to win the game,'"
Pennington recalled later.

Thus began a 16-play, 79-yard

Dolphins beat the Seattle Sea-

hawks 21-19 Sunday.

The strong finish is part of a
pattern for the rejuvenated Dol-
phins (5-4). They have a win-
ning record for the first time
since the end of the 2005 sea-
son, and in the past four victo-
ries they've preserved a lead of
a touchdown or less at the start
of the fourth quarter.

happens again. And then it hap-
pens again. And you start to fig-

_pretty resilient, and I do think

there's good character out

Last year the Dolphins were
rarely ahead, which may be why
they now guard a lead so stub-
bornly. Whatever the explana-
tion, they're good closers.

"I think we are building con-
fidence in ourselves and the
ability to win," Pennington said.
"Instead of having a feeling of
‘here we go again' when things
don't go our way, we focus on
switching the vibe and switching
the momentum."

Even after the long drive
against Seattle that put the Dol-

with overtime — or even defeat.

Still, the Dolphins would pre-

had a chance against Seattle,
scoring on their first two pos-
sessions for a 14-0 lead.

But the offense then began
_to sputter, and an interception

DENVER (AP) — The
Nuggets waived Antonio
McDyess one week after
they obtained him from
Detroit along with Chauncey
Billups and Cheikh Samb in
a swap for Allen Iverson.

The move was expected
as Denver tries to cut costs.
‘McDyess! agent, Andy
Miller, had said the chances
of him playing in Denver
were "very low to zero."

McDyess,.who had two
previous stints with Denver,
hasn't appeared in any
games for the Nuggets since
the trade.

The 34-year-old forward
has averaged 13.4 points and
7.7 rebounds per game in 12
seasons. He averaged 7
points and 4 rebounds in two

‘ games for Detroit before the
trade.

Besides the Nuggets and
Pistons, he has played for
the New York Knicks and
Phoenix Suns.



Allen said. "That's something
that we have to fix and we have
to stop. When we have a team
down, we have to keep mov-
ing."

But if kick coverage and nar-

biggest complaints, that's more

once-woeful Dolphins.

* Almost 14% of commercial

- Chamber chief reiterating
calls for business relief
arid rate cut

* $330m worth of loans now
90 days or more overdue

* Fiscal deficit containment
not possible

~ By NEIL HARTNELL

Business Editor

THE Cen- [|
tral Bank of
the Bahamas
has admitted
the Bahamian
economy
could slip into
recession by
year-end, with
the increase in |}
problem loans
to the business
sector leading
the Chamber of Commerce’s
president to yesterday reiterate
his call for a cut in interest rates.

The Centra! Bank, in its
monthly economic update for
September, said commercial or
business loans had experienced
“the most significant weaken-
ing” out of all loan categories,
with the arrears rate - loans 31
days past due (at least one
repayment missed) - standing
at 13.6 per cent for the private
sector.

This means that! more than

mye

- one in every. lo loans to.the
Bahamian business community -

- 1.4.out of every 10, to be exact
- was in arrears as at end-Sep-

' tember 2008. The banking sec- .

tor has about $1 billion in out-
standing loans to the business

‘sector, with the Central Bank

data indicating that some $136
million is in arrears.

The banking industry regula-
tor said the percentage of com-
mercial loans in arrears had
increased from 9.3 per cent in
December 2007, and from 10.5
per cent as at the year-over-year
comparative for September
2007.

Dionisio D’Aguilar, the
Chambcr president, said the
commerciakloan statistics again
backed his call for the Govern-
ment and Central Bank to cut
the discount rate, the interest
the latter charges on loans to
commercial banks.

That, in turn, would feed into
a reduction in Bahamian Prime,
the rate at which the commer-
cial banks lend to each other
and should, in theory, be passed
on to borrowers via reduced
monthly payments on all loans
whose rates are linked to Prime.

The Chamber chief said that
to ensure any interest rate cut
benefited only those businesses
and, borrowers with existing
loans and debt repayments, and
was not used for credit creation,

ROYAL FIDELITY

Baha Mar absorbing



‘Business Editor

aha Mar is currently

having to absorb net

losses running at a

rate of $10-$15 mil-

lion per annum at its Cable
Beach resorts, sources familiar
with the situation told Tribune
Business, with the two proper-
ties “at least 25 per cent off
where we’d like to be” for the
upcoming Thanksgiving period.
Robert Sands, Baha Mar’s
senior vice-president for gov-
ernment and public affairs,
declined to comment yesterday
when contacted by this news-
paper about the loss figure pro-
vided to Tribune Business by

. informed business sources.

However, he acknowledged
that while it. was too early for a
fully accurate picture to emerge,
with just over two weeks to go
before the Thanksgiving holi-
day period travel market con-
ditions and bookings were “still
extremely soft”.

With room booking windows
having reduced to as little as
one week before travellers tak-
ing their vacation, Mr Sands
told Tribune Business: “We’ve

seen some turn-up in business
based on what’s happening
now, but we’re not seeing the
level of activity we would nor-
mally expect from the Thanks-
giving period.

“It’s still sluggish and very
short-term. It’s still all very ten-
tative. It is still extremely soft at
this time, but I’m hopeful it will
pick up in the short-term. We
will have some better indica-

tions of what Thanksgiving will |

likely be at the end of this week,
but it’ll be less than last year.”
Mr Sands added that “under

normal circumstances” Baha ~

Mar would have had a “fairly
good indication” of how the
Thanksgiving period was look-
ing already, but the shortened
booking windows had made

even short-term hotel industry,
trends much harder to predict.

The Baha Mar executives
emphasised that Thanksgiving

bookings and occupancy pro-’

jections could well pick up over
the next few weeks, but at cur-
rent projections, occupancies
were around 55-60 percent for
the Sheraton and in the “60s-
70s” for the Wyndham.

Those levels were “off from

‘what we'd like it to be by at

least 25 per cent at the
moment”.

“There is quite.a lot of uncer-
tainty, and the strength of
Thanksgiving will give an indi-
cation of how resilient the US
travel market is,” Mr Sands
said.

Adding that Baha Mar hoped
to make no more lay-offs, he
added: “Hopefully, business will
improve going forward. We
have to do everything creative
to reduce losses and drive busi-

ness the way we can in a very —

fragile environment.”

Mr Sands said both Baha Mar
properties had been boosted
this week by Dr Myles
Munroe’s Bahamas Faith Min-
istries International conference,

with the Sheraton’s occupan-

cies in the high 80 per cent
range and the Wyndham in the
50-60 per cent range.’

Baha Mar’s current perfor-
mance, and those of other
major hotel properties, will
come as little surprise, with

-Prime Minister Hubert Ingra-

ham announcing last night that
tourism arrivals to the Bahamas

' were projected to fall‘by 6 per

cent for the 2008 full-year.
Stopover visitors are likely to

10-15m in losses

By NEIL HARTNELL

fall more than cruise passen-
gers.

“Tourism, the principal
engine of the Bahamian econo-
my, experienced an increase in
income up to August of this
year due to increases in room
rates in New Providence, but
hotel occupancy levels then fell
precipitously in September and
October and continue to do so,”
Mr Ingraham said last night.

“Since August, the major
hotels and resorts in New Prov-
idence and Paradise Island have
experienced the lowest occu-
pancy rates in many years while
weakening in Grand Bahama’s
hotel.sector was in-evidence
many months before.

“Advance hotel bookings
offer no sign that the situation
in our hotel sector will be
reversed in the coming months.

“Unemployment‘is now a
most serious concern. Many
workers in the tourism sector
face the prospect of layoffs or
unemployment for a consider-
able period, and at least until

- the global economy, especially

that of the US, is stabilized and
returns to forward movement.”

is now experiencing, Mr Ingra-
ham said government borrow-
ing will “appreciably increase”
as a short-term response to the
crisis, as the administration
seeks to finance public, works
projects and create employment.
Tribune Business sources
have suggested that the Gov-
ernment is trying to raise a $200
million syndicated loan from the
commercial banks to finance
such projects, although that
could not be confirmed before
press time. Zhivargo Laing, min
ister of state for finance,

declined to comment, saying he
wanted the Prime Minister to
speak first.

Yet some of the key capital
works projects identified by Mr
Ingraham are having issues of
their own, the Lynden Pindling
International Airport being a
prime example, with Citibank
and FirstCaribbean finding it
difficult to attract international

THE TRIBUNE



Obama must succeed for us all to prosper

LAST week,'I wrote about
what I described as America’s
“most significant referendum
on the state of race relations”.
Well, I guess that the referen-

dum passed with flying colours |

as Barack Obama is now presi-

dent-elect of the United States -

of America...an accomplish-
ment that I thought I would
never see in my lifetime, but an
event that I remained hopeful
my children could possibly wit-
ness.

I shared and felt
moment’ at about 11pm on

November 4, when CNN:

declared Barack Obama the vic-
tor. As the cameras ‘panned the
crowd’ in Grant Park in Chica-



‘the.

go, the most moving image that

remains with me is not that of ©

Oprah Winfrey leaning on some
person’s shoulder with her face
full of emotion. Nor is it the
image of the Rev Jesse Jackson
with tears streaming down both
cheeks...but rather it is that of a
young, unknown white girl of
about seven or eight years-old.
She sat on her father’s shoul-
der with an American flag in
one hand, her other fist tightly
clenched and jubilantly pump-
ing in the air, and the expression
on her face was one of utmost

achievement, , pride and passion.

Bigger picture
That brief image, which last-



ed all of a couple of seconds at
best, will be immortalised in my
memory because what we were
witnessing was more than a sim-
ple watershed moment in the
history of race relations. Oba-
ma’s victory was not just a

-‘mono-ethnic’ event, wherein

he succeeded only because all
the blacks voted for him. He
succeeded because whites, His-
panics, Native Americans,

Asians and other groupings also
- voted for him'm record num-
bers. Hence the reasons why
that image of the ‘unknown girl’
holds a special place in my
memory of that historic

moment.

I do believe the result of this
recent US presidential election

‘ represented a ‘passing of the
guard’ in how the majority
views race. While I am not
naive enough to believe that
racism is dead, I do believe that

. going forward it is becoming
more and more marginalised.
_One just needs to consider the
composition of the crowd in

Grant Park last Tuesday night.

friends. Among themselves they
do not see colour, but rather,

.they see friendship.

How was this possible?

Many persons are asking the
question: “How was his victory
possible?” After all, he was

unknown with an un-American.

name; most prominent and
influential blacks had thrown
their support behind Hillary
Clinton; he was ‘boxed-out’
from traditional Democrat Par-
ty big financial donors; he was a
newcomer to national politics;
and, finally, he was black.
Notwithstanding,seemingly
insurmountable odds, he suc-
ceeded. When all the “Monday
morning quarterbacking” is
done, I attribute Obama’s suc-
cess to two principle factors:

Renaissance candidate

Some persons described the
president-elect as a modern day
‘renaissance man’ - a term com-
monly used to describe a person

who is well-educated, or who

excels, in a wide variety of sub-
jects or fields.
Obama is a very articulate,

smart, handsome, hardworking -

and energetic candidate. He
also has charm, charisma and
presence. These qualities are
augmented by a willingness to
seek and thoroughly consider
advice.

Finally, I do betieve-the fact
that he is actually bi-racial pro-
vided some quiet comfort to

that slice of America that still |

has a difficulty seeing a ‘non-
Caucasian’ as an equal, never

‘ mind a presiderit.

Campaign team

One is plainly left in awe
when analysing his campaign
team. The job they did is simply
amazing. They revolutionised
the science of political cam-
paigning with their strategic

: planning; understanding of the -

major ‘hot button’ issues; their
ability to incorporatetechnol-

ogy and the Internet; their abil-

ity to understand and craft rel-
evant and clear messages; and
finally the discipline to stay ‘on



' message’ for two full years.

Obama’s campaign team
appeared to have been focused,
cohesive, well-organised and

disciplined.

The big question

The big question is whether
President Obama can bring a
similar degree of focus, cohe-
sion, organisation and discipline
to both the White House and
Congress. ;

America has numerous
‘major’ problems, such as a

financial system in-need of

urgent and costly repair; an
economy in recession; expen-
sive and widely unpopular wars
in Iraq and Afghanistan; bur-
geoning national debt levels;
unprecedented deficit financ-
ing; broken healthcare and edu-
cational systems; and, finally, a

‘dire need for investment in

basic infrastructure such as
roads and bridges:

On the international side,
there is the unfinished ‘war on
terrorism’; continuing instabili-

" ty in the Middle East; and grow-

ing Russian belligerency.

For the Bahamas to prosper,
we need the US to prosper, as
our economic fate is inextrica-
bly intertwined. Therefore,

_ there is more. riding on the suc-

cess of the incoming presidency
for the Bahamas than the casu-

_al observer would detect. _

nental Diversified Corporation
(IDC) (the immediate holding
company for the GBPA and
Port Group Ltd) and Seashells
Investments, the vehicle: that
holds the. Hayward family’s 50
per cent IDC stake.

He found that the St George
estate could not claim it had
been oppressed by how the
GBPA,and Port Group Ltd’s

affairs had been conducted

because they were not share-

“holders in the companies. As a

result, they could not bring the

oppression action under Sec- .

tion 280 of the Companies Act,
as they had tried to do.

“T find that even if the plain-
tiffs or the [St George] estate
and the others mentioned in....

the Originating Summons had -

been the victims of the oppres-
sive action complained of, they
would not be able to avail them-
selves of the remedy-under.Sec-
tion 280 because they are not
shareholders of the Port Com-
panies or otherwise within the
victim class as required by law,”

- Justice Adderley found.
. “Furthermore, insofar as the
first plaintiff [Lady Henrietta

St George] is a ditector of the
Port Companies; even if it had

been pleaded in the Originat-
“ing Summons that if affected

her interest in her capacity as
director, the oppressive act
complained of has been reme-
died by the Court Order dated
March 7, 2008, and the remain-
ing oppressive act.complained
of in 2006 was not acted on by

- the company.”

Justice Adderley hdied that it

was “plain and obvious that the

action under Séction 280 is mis-
conceived and bound to fail,
neither they [the St George
estate trustees] or the Estate
are shareholders of the Port
Companies or otherwise in the

' victim class as required by Sec-

tion 280”.

As a result, he struck seven
paragraphs from the estate’s
Originating Summons, one of
which prevented: Mr Babak
from acting as GBPA and Port
Group chair, and dismissed the
oppression proceedings. .

In his ruling, Justice Adderley
said that in the context of Sec-
tion 280 of the Companies Act,
victims of ‘ oppressive conduct’
in a company’s affairs were any

_shareholder, debenture holder,

creditor, director or officer.

The term ‘shareholder’
“refers to the registered share-
holder”, the ruling stated, with
the Bahamian Companies Act
having omitted “any provision
that a beneficial owner of shares
in a company is a shareholder”.
The-St George estate, though, is
not the registered shareholder.

Justice Adderley also rejected
the estate’s argument that IDC,
Seashells and Fiduciary. Man-
agement Services (FMS) were
affiliates of the GBPA and Port
Group, agreeing. with the
defence arguments that they
were unregistered foreign com-
panies and could not be treated
as affiliates. :

udge strikes out Port:

This defeated the estate’s

argument that it had been

‘ oppressed by IDC’s refusal to

amend its shareholder register
and list the executors - Lady
Henrietta, her brother, Lord
Euston, and attorney Chris Caf-
ferata - as shareholders.

THE TRIBUNE

a se
DHL to cut 9,500 jobs in US

m@ By HARRY R WEBER and
SAMANTHA BOMKAMP
AP Business Writers

ATLANTA (AP) — Delivery
company DHL, hit by heavy
losses and fierce competition, is
significantly reducing its air and
ground operations in the US and
cutting 9,500 American jobs,
leaving rivals like FedEx, UPS
and the US Postal Service to
fight over the customers it will
stop serving.

The decision announced Mon-
day could lead to higher ship-
ping prices and greatly scale back
a possible venture between UPS
and DHL, the fourth-largest
shipper of packages in the US.

Deutsche Post AG, the Ger-

man parent of DHL, said it will
no longer offer US domestic-only
air and ground services as of Jan-
uary 30, though it said interna-
tional shipping to and from the
US would continue:

DHL has tried to be a major
player in the US since it bought
Airborne Inc.'s ground delivery
network for $1.05 billion in 2003,
but it has lagged in the air and
ground markets combined, ana-
lysts said.

Now, as other shippers pick

up some of DHL's business in -

the US, it could cost customers
more but boost the bottom lines
of the shippers.

"The real upside might be two,
three or four years down the
road, when the economy is feel-
ing better and FedEx-and UPS
are able to raise prices, because
they won't have another com-
petitor nipping at their heels,"
said Avondale Partners analyst
Donald Broughton.

Monday's news follows
Deutsche Post's announcement
in May that it was working on a
. deal with UPS to ailow the

Atlanta-based company to carry

some of DHL's air packages.
The DHLU-UPS venture was
expected to last up to 10 years
and generate up to $1 billion in
annual revenue for UPS, the
world's largest shipping carrier.
UPS has said the contract with
DHL, which it has been work-
ing to complete, would mostly
involve the transport of DHL
packages between airports in
North America — not the pickup
or delivery of DHL packages to
- customers.
* UPS spokesman Norman
Black said his company would
.continue to work on an air-haul
vendor:contract with DHL, But,

he added, "Today's announce- -

ment by-DHL certainly could
affect the size and scope of that
contract. We'll go back into talks
and see what develops."

RESORT, from 1B

‘While foreign direct invest-
ment inflows for tourism-relat-
ed projects was up 16 per cent
for the year to September 2008,
Mr Ingraham added: “The
growth of major investment
inflows into resort and hotel
development, which we had
anticipated, is slowing down and
a significant portion may not
materialise for quite a while.”

He said: “We are significant-
_ ly increasing the marketing and
advertising of our destinations
in the television and print
media, and we are also aggres-
sively promoting our country
online.

“Much of this initiative is
directed to the US market as
the closest, friendly, English-
speaking destination which uses
the same currency and enjoys
US customs and immigration
pre-clearance facilities.” —

The Prime Minister added:
“The Bahamas has the consid-
erable advantage of proximity
to the US; we will exploit that
proximity advantage to the
fullest.

“These efforts are being sup-
plemented by aggressive initia-
tives to improve airlift from. the
US to the Bahamas at compet-
itive rates.

“Increased promotional tele-
vision and print marketing ini-
tiatives are also underway in the
UK and Canada. Public rela-
tions initiatives are being pur-
sued in key markets in Asia and
Latin America with a view to
positioning The Bahamas to
benefit as and when the econo-
my begins to improve in those
regions.

“But even the best pump in
the world is of little value if
there is no water in the well.
We must all await the return of
consumer confidence in the
global financial system and most
especially consumer confidence
in the US before we can get our
tourism sector back on track
completely.”

Black cited the part of the
Deutsche Post announcement
that said DHL plans to stop
offering air service between U.S.
cities.

"The only thing that's left is
moving international packages
once they get to the US border,"
Black said. "That's a dramati-
cally lower amount of volume
than what they were originally
talking to us about."

Currently, DHL's total air vol-

ume for shipments from points
between US and international
destinations and between points
within the US is about 1.2 million
shipments a day.

That figure will drop to about
100,000 shipments a day after the
changes go through, Deutsche
Post said. The air volume figures
do not include packages that do
not start or end in the US.

Avondale's Broughton said he
thought the value of the pro-
posed deal between DHL and
UPS had been dwindling even
before Monday's news.

"This just accelerates that
process," he said.

Edward Jones analyst Dan
Ortwerth said Deutsche Post's
decision changes the scope of a
potential DHL-UPS deal, but
doesn't necessarily kill it.

"I don't see any motivation for -

UPS to outright walk away,"
Ortwerth said. "UPS is in the
stronger position, and I'm sure at

the bargaining table they will:

protect their own interests plen-
ty well."

DHL's air and ground opera-
tions generated $3.4 billion in
revenue last year.

"This is a nice piece of the
market for UPS and FedEx to
play jump ball with," Broughton
said.

Customers have already shift-
ed some of their business to UPS
Inc. and Memphis, Tenn.-based
FedEx Corp.

Dell Inc., for example, has
shifted some of its packages to
FedEx, according to spokesman
Venancio Figueroa. But the com-
pany also delivers packages
through rival UPS and other ven-
dors.as well. Figueroa said Mon-
day's DHL announcement would
have a minimal effect on the
computer maker, since it has
contingency plans. ~

"Global shippers have told us
they are looking for unparalleled

global reach, and FedEx is the -
global leader in express trans-

portation," FedEx said in a state-

‘ment.

UPS expects it will be able to
pick up DHL customers in the
future, as it has in the past, Black
said. t _

DHL's current providers of air

service within the US, ABX and

ASTAR Air Cargo, have been
opposed to the DHL-UPS deal,
saying it would cost thousands
of jobs if it went through. Now,
given the extent of Deutsche
Post's announcement, many jobs

could be lost at the two compa- |

nies even if the DHL-UPS deal
isn't completed.

To satisfy federal rules pro-
hibiting more than a 25 per cent
stake in US airlines by foreign
owners, Airborne and DHL had

spun off Airborne's air opera-

tions as ABX Air.

ABX spokeswoman Beth
Huber said Monday's decision
by Deutsche Post will affect
ABX' work force and opera-
tions. Just how much of an
impact has yet to be determined,
she said. ABX has about 7 ,000
employees.

“The Government can tackle
this in two ways. It can let busi-
nesses lay people off and then
help them, or prevent business-
es from laying people off by giv-

breaks,” Mr D’ Aguilar told Tri-

“The critical thing is to keep
people employed. Give busi-

D’ Aguilar said. “The Govern-
ment’s emphasis should be on
keeping people employed.
They’ve got to focus on the pri-
vate sector, especially small and
medium-sized businesses.

“T don’t see why, by reduc- «

ing interest rates by 1 per cent,
we can’t get them current and
cap the amount of loans that
banks can make. Give it a one-
year life.” . 2)
Meanwhile, the Central Bank

said total non-performing loans -

(those 90 days past due with
three payments or more missed)
had increased by 30.9 per cent

since the start of 2008, reach- .

ing $330 million as at end Sep-

tember 2008.
Over the same nine-month

period, total bank loans in

' arrears climbed by 17.4 per cent

to $622 million, with the ratio of
arrears to total loans increasing
to 10.4 per cent compared to
9.3 per cent as at December
2007, and 8.6 per cent for Sep-
tember. 2007.

Prime Minister Hubert Ingra-
ham last night said the deterio-
ration in the banking system’s
asset quality further exposed
the current “weakness” in this
nation’s economy.

He said: “Non-performing
loans, that is, loans on which
payments have not been made
for at least three months, have

Bahamas’ current fiscal position,
this move will relieve some of

the economic pressures and not .

lead to the creation of an unsus-
tainable debt burden: or down-
grades from the international
credit rating agencies. .

The 2008 year-over-year

increase in the national debt was
faster than the 4.7 per cent
growth seen in the 12 months
to October 31, 2007.

The Central Bank; mean-

while, yesterday delivered a fis-
cal warning of its own, revealing
that the fiscal deficit had

increased by 20.9 per cent to $28.

increased by nearly 40 per cent.

“Another revéaling indicator
is the ratio of loans in arrears to
total claims outstanding which

has risen to 10.4 per cent in

2008, compared with 8.6 per
cent in 2007 and 7.6% per cent
in 2006.”

The Central Bank said the
increase in the percentage of
mortgage loans in arrears had
been more marginal, growing
by only 0.1 per cent - from 10.4
per cent to 10.5 per cent - of the

total outstanding portfolio dur-

ing the first nine months of
2008.

Still, the regulator said the
percentage of mortgage loans
currently in arrears was above
September 2007’s 8.9 per cent

‘level. As for consumer loans,

the arrears percentage had
increased to 9.1 per cent in Sep-
tember 2008, compared to -8.3
per cent and 7.8 per cent,
respectively, for December and

. September 2007.

As a result, Bahamian com-
mercial banks had increased
loan loss provisions by 27.4 per
cent since end-December 2007.

The Central Bank acknowl-
edged that the Bahamas’ gross
domestic product (GDP)
growth for 2008 was “likely to
be, at best, very modest to flat,
following on a possible con-
traction in the second half of
the year”.

2008 - the first two months of
the 2008-2009 Budget year.

Total spending, driven by an 8
per cent increase in recurrent
expenditure, rose by 6.9 per cent
to $244.6 million during those
two months. This was despite
capital spending falling by 11.8
per cent. ;

Yet total revenues grew at a
slower rate during those two
months, rising only by 5.3 per
cent to $216.7 million. Revenues
from taxes increased by 6.3 per

cent, but non-tax revenues

dropped by 5.2 per cent. :

_. For:the 2007-2008 Budget .
‘year, Central Bank data showed
that the fiscal deficit for those 12 —

months had fallen by 35.31 per

-cent, dropping from, $183.5 mil-
‘lion to $118.7 million. This
-. Means the Government spent
"$118.7 million more than it earnt

- in that fiscal year. :
"For the 2007-2008 Budget
- year, government revenues and

grants increased by 5.64 per cent

year-on-year to $1.414 million,
compared to $1.338 million the
.-year before. Import duty rev-

enues increased by 2.77 per cent,
owing from $507.5 million to

Government rose by 3.18 per

The word ‘contraction’ is
essentially banker ‘code-speak’
for recession, which is defined
as two consecutive quarters of
negative economic growth.
And, not surprisingly, the neg-
ative growth is likely to last
through 2009.

“ Anecdotal evidence since
September already signalled
attenuated weakness in the
domestic economy during the
fourth quarter, with the aver-
age work week in the hotel sec-
tor reduced below the seasonal
ebb normally expected during
this time of the year, and with
some properties having to
reduce their employment lev-
els,” the Central Bank reported.

“In other real sector activity,
sluggishness in construction out-
put is evident in the scaled back
works on several foreign invest-
ment projects, impacted by con-
stricted credit and capital flows
in the external sector.......

“These conditions and their
consequences will also adverse-
ly impact Government’s rev-
enue collections, and constrain
short-run efforts to reduce the
fiscal deficit. While the rebound
in the US dollar and subsidised
oil prices are expected to tem-
per the domestic inflation rate
during 2009, the Bahamas will
still be faced with the accumu-
lated impact of higher prices
already in the economy.”

ernment can do in the short-
term other than prime the capi-
tal works spending pump.

The speech-was more of.a
‘reality check’, giving Bahami-
ans a sobering assessment of the
current economic situation, and
emphasising the need to pull
together, be productive and pru-
dent when taking on new debt.

Critics, though, are likely to

-point to the fact that there was

little to generate confidence in
either consumers or businesses
at a time when it is badly need-
ed. Yet, in truth, ‘there is little
reason for many to be wildly
optimistic about existing eco-
nomic prospects. -
Notably absent from the
Prime Minister’s address, -
though, was any mention of the

Bahamas Telecommunications’ —

Company (BTC) privatisation
and any potential efforts to sell
other state assets, or plans to
develop renewable energy
sources for BEC. Both could be .
key initiatives tokeep the. econ- .

omy moving. —

The only new initiative —
announced by the Prime Min
ister last night was a proposal .
to re-allocate monies from the
National Insurance Board’s
(NIB) medical benefit branch,
where there is a surplus, to a
“temporary unemployment
assistance programme” that the
Board will administer.

This would not impact the
sustainability of future NIB pen-
sion payments, Mr Ingraham
said. Those able to access. the
unemployment benefits pro-
gramme will have to be unem-
ployed for “a specific period of
time”, and an NIB contributor
for a minimum number of years.

1. Pass. Opening bids of one in a
suit normally contain 12 to 21 high-
card points. So, whenever you open
the bidding with one of a suit, your
partner has no idea whether your
opening is of the weak, strong or
intermediate class.

Most of the time, you get to iden-
tify the strength of your hand at your
next turn to bid. In the present case,
that time is now. Since your opening
bid was clearly of the minimum
class, you can best indicate those val-
ues by passing one spade, implying
that you opened a minimum and that
you have no clear-cut action over
East’s bid.

2. Two hearts. Standing by itself,
this is also a minimum hand, but it
has risen appreciably in value
because of the A-Q-x in partner’s
suit. Such excellent trump support

should not. be suppressed even
though you have only 13 high-card
points.

3. Three clubs. This hand is in the
intermediate range (16 to 18 points)
and can best be described by jump-
ing to three clubs. Game is likely in
clubs, hearts or notrump, although
partner can pass with a minimum
(six or seven points). The final con-
tract depends on what he does next.

4. Two notrump. This hand is‘also
in the intermediate class, but the
available information — at least for
the time being — indicates that
notrump is probably your best spot.
The jump to two notrump shows 18
or 19 points, notrump distribution
and stoppers in both of the oppo-
nents” suits.

However, the final contract is still
an open issue. Partner may be able to
raise notrump, or may prefer a suit
contract. Wherever he leads you fol-
low, because your values are flexible
and can fit any type of hand he holds.

5. Three hearts. ‘Your four-card
trump support, singleton diamond
(worth three points) and potential
four or five club tricks all combine to
put your hand into the intermediate
class, so you jump to three hearts to
invite partner to go on to game. Part-
ner is allowed to pass with the
skimpiest of values, but will seldom
do so in actual practice. ie

m By JEFFARAHGIBSON "Traditional views of manhood
cause many Bahamian men to
withhold their problem

AT some point in our
lives, we have all experi-
enced depression, but for
Bahamian men - who are
typically taught to keep
up a brave front, to nev-
er cry and to never show
weakness - when depres-
sion strikes it can be
incredibly devastating,
and difficult to emerge
out of.

From a medical perspective,
depression comes in two forms,
either clinical depression or
non-clinical depression.

‘Clinical depression is a mental
illness that is characterized by
severe, chronic sadness, dimin-
ishing ability to enjoy interests,
loss of pleasure for things that
you once found fascinating, loss
of energy, difficulty concentrat-
ing, feeling hopeless, a change
of sleep patterns, changes in
appetite, feelings of helpless-
ness, feelings of guilt, and the
most serious, thoughts of sui-
cide, and harming oneself.

“Clinical depression is a con-

sistent feeling of chronic sad-.

ness that may last for more than
two weeks," Angela Ward, a
psychologist at the Renascence
Institute Int’l told Tribune
Health. "In this type of depres-
sion there is no direct source
that triggers the emotions asso-
ciated with it, for example a cur-
rent, unforeseen personal issue.
Clinical depression can also
sometimes be genetic."

Unlike clinical depression,
non-clinical depression needs a
source for the symptoms to be
experienced, and typically arises
from a temporary, unresolved

“circumstance, Ms Ward said.

Depression triggers can include
issues such as feelings of dissat-
isfaction with accomplishments,
stressing over personal issues,
and failure, which is a source of
shame for most men, she noted.

According to Ward, the inci-
‘dence of depression is on the
rise in Bahamian society, and
men are more negatively affect-
ed by the disease than women.

In today’s society men are
seen as beings of strength and

are sometimes inclined to show

no intimation of weakness. This
fact is one of the main reasons
why depression affects men
more negatively than it affects
women. “Men would do any-
thing but appear weak. When
men experience depression they
are unable to express what they
are feeling, they cannot find
words that describe how or what
they feel. Some men have talked
about being in a dark, empty

‘ place," Ms Ward said.

Men who are faced with
depression are unlikely to admit
to it, and they are also likely to
deny that anything is wrong
with them. Although they are
aware of their current emotion-
al status, most men do not want
people to know the condition
they are in mentally and emo-
tionally. :

And not only do men not
want other people to know what
is going on with them, but they
don’t want to face the issues
themselves. “Men often try to
distract themselves with activi-
ties, risky driving, substance
abuse, sexual stimulation, risky

behaviour while driving, irri-
tability and anger.”

The way some men behave
during depression can also lead to
domestic violence, Ms Ward noi-
ed further. These men are often
angry and sometimes take their
anger out on their families.

When trying to get a male rel-
ative or friend to open up, Ms
Ward said that it was important
to remember that men have a
tendency to keep things in
instead of talking about their
problems - which is part of the
reason why depression causes
serious emotional turmoil for
them.

“What you can do is address
the issue. Say to them,.'I notice
you have been acting a little a
strange and I want to know
what the problem is'. You must
make them aware that you are
aware of their changes in atti-
tude, emotions, and behaviour.”

When dealing with a person
that is depressed, you should
not tell them to cheer up, she
said. Depressed people need
permission to feel their feelings,
if they are feeling guilty give.
them the permission to feel
guilty. What they also don’t
need is your advice. It may seem

a little harsh, but they have the

answers - the only thing they
need is your support.



istemper



CANINE distemper is a
highly contagious disease of
dogs, wolves, coyotes, raccoons,
mink and ferrets.

It is caused by a virus that is
easily spread through the air
and by contaminated objects,
much like the cold virus spreads
in people. This virus is excreted
in the saliva, through respira-
tory secretions, urine and feces,
and transmitted through the air
(sneezing and coughing). It is
similar to the human measles
virus.

Though the disease occurs
more often in young dogs, those
of any age may contract dis-
temper. This is especially true

of animals under stress or those
that are relatively isolated from
other dogs. Signs range from
those of a mild respiratory
problem, such as runny eyes
and nose, to severe diarrhea,
vomiting and seizures. Many
recovered dogs are left with
uncontrollable muscle or limb
jerking and/or periodic convul-
sions.

Vaccination is the best means
ot preventing canine distemper.
All dogs should be vaccinated
yearly. Unfortunately, even the
highly effective commercial
vaccines are not 100 per cent
effective and sometimes vacci-
nated dogs become infected.

Important points
in treatment

1. Distemper is a serious dis-
ease that is often fatal. Cur-
rently we have no drugs to
destroy the virus. Treatment
is aimed at supporting general
health and preventing bacteri-
al infections, and in many cas-
es, hospital treatment is nec-
essary.

2. Stricken dogs are treated
with antibiotics to combat
infections that often result
from immunosuppression,
along with fluid therapy and
medications to control diar-

~

rhea and vomiting to counter-
act dehydration.

3. No one treatment.is spe-
cific or always etfective, and it
may take on going therapy for
up to six weeks to conquer the
disease.

4. Sick dogs must be quar-
antined away from healthy
dogs. Plus the virus can live
in a frozen state for many years
and still infect your dog. It is
relatively unstable in hot and
dry conditions and can be
killed by most disinfectants,
such as household bleach.

5. The decision to attempt
to save the dog is based on its
overall health. For some,
symptoms get better then
worsen before recovery. Other
dogs show no improvement
despite aggressive treatment.
Often after consulting your
veterinarian, owners make the
difficult decision to cuthanive
the sick dog.

UNDER the theme. “Take
the Lead”, the organizing
committee of the AIDS Foun-
dation is in final preparations
for their major fundraising
event, the annual Red Rib-
bon Ball. Scheduled to take
place on November 15 at the
Imperial Ballroom of the
Atlantis Resort, Paradise
Island, the ball is the most
anticipated event for the
country's fashion savvy.

Although the ball is a time
of glitz and glamour and danc-

ing until the wee hours of the’

morning, the purpose of the.
ball is to raise funds to fight
HIV/AIDS in the Bahamas
and its effects on society.

The AIDS Foundation has
made many achievements
over the years, realising some

$650,000 raised from past |

balls for the work of the foun-
dation and other national

AIDS programmes and ‘ini- ©

_ tiatives. As the fight contin-
ues however, so does the

magniine costs incurred from
such a community outreach

and it is only with the help of |

corporate partners that these
goals can become a reality.
Doctors Hospital continues
to share the vision of the
AIDS Foundation, that is to
provide education and aware-
ness, to assist in the preven-

_ tion, treatment and cure, and

to provide support for people
living with HIV/AIDS.

For a number.of years Doc-
tors Hospital has been a
patron of the AIDS Founda-
tion of the Bahamas. As the

hospital pledges its commit- -

ment to service within the

Bahamian community, a.

recent check presentation was
made to the AIDS Founda-
tion to assist in the continua-
tion of its excellent work for
the benefit of the entire
Bahamian community.

“By our donation to the

AIDS Foundation, we are

yank the lead' in regards to.

our commitment of service to
the Bahamian community.
Our donation will assist in
providing funding for educa-
tional programmes targeted
at HiV/AIDS prevention
and/or the elimination of prej-
udice and discrimination
against HIV/AIDS-affected
individuals, and for pro-
grammes that provide services
to people living with or at risk
for HIV/AIDS.

"In keeping with our mis-
sion and‘vision, we have to
make a difference by our own
actions. It is our pleasure to
support the AIDS Foundation
as they continue to make such
a lasting difference in the lives
of patients fighting the battle
against HIV/AIDS,” said
Doctors Hospital's VP Oper-
ations, Michele Rassin.

° You don't have to be a cor-
porate sponsor to help, you too
can make a difference, here is



how you can help! Purchase a
ticket for the ball, planned for
Saturday, November 15, and
plan to attend. You can also
make a monetary donation to
the Foundation, whatever you

_can afford is exactly the
amount that they are in need of §

and don't forget to proudly

adorn your red ribbons. Wear- |

THE month of November is
known as Diabetes Awareness
Month. World Diabetes Day,
held on November 14, is a Unit-
ed Nations Day and a global
campaign aimed at raising
awareness and educating the
world about diabetes. The
theme for this year is “Diabetes
in Children and Adolescents"

under the slogan, "Unite for dia-

betes’.

Diabetes is growing at an
alarming rate in the Bahamas.
Approximately 10 per cent of
the Bahamian population
(30,000 plus persons) is living
with diabetes. This figure is
probably much higher as there
are many persons who are living
with diabetes and do not even
know it.

Diabetes is a silent'killer, as
often times persons do not
“feel” the symptoms of high
blood sugar until it is too far
gone or too late. Diabetes
wreaks havoc in the lives of
many Bahamians when not
properly managed, and can lead
to chronic high blood sugar lev-
‘els which are associated with
heart attacks, renal failure,
amputations and blindness.











What is diabetes?

Diabetes, otherwise known as
“sugar’
disease. When a person has dia-
betes, either the pancreas does
not produce the insulin it needs -
this is type 1 diabetes, or the
body cannot make effective use
of the insulin it produces - this is
type 2 diabetes.

Common symptoms of both
type 1 and 2 diabetes include:

_ excessive thirst, frequent urina-

tion, sudden weight loss, extreme
tiredness and blurred vision. Peo-
ple with type 2 diabetes tend to
have symptoms-that are less

_ apparent. Many may have no

symptoms and are only diag-
nosed. after several years with
diabetes.

According to the Internation-
al Diabetes Federation, 50 per
cent of people with type 2 dia-
betes are not aware that they

have the condition. This fact

emphasizes the importance of
screening for early diagnosis

for type 2 diabetes, ie persons
over 40 years of age, persons who
are obese, person who have a
physically inactive lifestyle and

people with a family history of

Diabetes in children.
and adolescents

Children are not spared from
this life long debilitating disease

and its life-threatening compli-

cations. According to the Inter-
national Diabetes Federation,
70,000 children develop type 1
diabetes each year and 440,000
children worldwide under the
age of 14 now live with type 1
diabetes. Furthermore, type 2
diabetes, previously unheard of
in children, is rising rapidly. Dia-
betes in childhood shortens life
expectancy by an average of 10
to 20 years.

Diabetes has a unique impact



2008

on children and their families.
Children with diabetes must
monitor their blood sugar levels,
take medication, and balance the
effect of activity and food.
Imagine a child-or adolescent
having to do this in the school
setting as they try to dodge

‘stigmatization and discrimina-

tion. Imagine-a child in the

- school setting trying to find a

comfortable, clean environment
to prick their finger so that they
can check their blood sugar or
find a spot to take their insulin.
In short, diabetes can and. does
interfere with the normal devel-
opmental tasks of childhood and
adolescence, which include suc-
ceeding in school and transition-
ing to adulthood.

In addition to monitoring blood

sugar levels ‘and taking medica- .

tion, food also plays an important
role in the management of dia-
betes. For proper control of blood
sugars, when a child eats is as
important as what the child eats.
The amount of food also has to be
matched with the amount of

insulin the child is taking. But at.

the same time, children with dia-

betes need to eat the same nutri- °
" tious food that other family mem-

bers should be eating.

It is important to‘understand

however, that children and ado-
lescents with diabetes are not on

a “diet” and their-food calories
should not be restricted. Instead
of restricting calories and
depriving them of certain foods,

assure that the amount of food
’ they eat matches the amount of

insulintheytake.

There are four important
things to remember when it
comes to eating and taking your
insulin.

1. When: How often or how.

frequently food is consumed

2. How much: Always be
.aware of.the amount of food
‘you are eating so that the insulin

dose matches °

3. With what: What is in your
food? How is it prepared? What
are you eating it -with?

4, Is your insulin working: It is
important to have enough
insulin working in the body to
cover the food you eat.

to her heart's desire - hoping for a
chance of her own - until one day fate
popped up on her computer screen.

“T was surfing the Internet for infor-
mation on models and modeling, and
I stumbled across a link to Models242.
They were announcing that Ford

als trying to seduce young girls,
Gabriel's mother refused to allow her
to enter the contest. Unwilling to let
her dream go howéver,’she recruited
her godfather, attorney Desmond

vince her mother. If this was a genuine

“The night that I got the call saying
I was finalists in the Supermodel of
the Bahamas [competition], I ran
around the yard barefoot, laughing. I
was laughing so much that my jaws
starting hurting,” the former Jack
Hayward student said.

“I was surprised because [ lived in
Freeport and didn't have the exact
pictures they were asking for to enter
the contest. I didn't think they would
pick me,” she said. “I really didn't
expect to hear anything back.”

Gabriel jokingly said she bragged to
her friends online, her mother's
friends, and “to anyone else who
would listen”.

Once she got the initial-call that
she had made it into the local finals,
Gabriel immediately moved to Nas-
sau. And even though she didn't need
to, she showed up at the meeting
being held for the Nassau finalists
because she did not want to miss out
on anything.

“T told her about the Nassau meet-
ing and said that we were looking into
bringing her up from Freeport to do
the group publicity shot, but not until
the weekend after the meeting with
the Nassau finalists,” he said.

He remembers checking his email

- before heading out for his meeting

with the Nassau finalists and finding
an email from Gabriel

asking what time she
needed to be there.

“T wasn't sure if l was
reading it right because I
thought that she was still
in Freeport. How could
she be asking me about
what time to show up for
this meeting,” Mr
Humes said.

Gabriel said she
showed up for the meet-
ing in early September
and never returned to

Freeport until after she

won the contest. On the
week leading to the con-
test's grand finale, she
and the nine others final-
ists moved into the Sher-

“Moving into the hotel
was like a sleep over. I

felt like I actually was on America's

Gabriel recalls that it was not until

she got on stage at the grand finale that —

An 'y real sense of Ghunge

, begins with inspiration.

Michelle Miller

THE colourful journey of life
is sprinkled with many opportu-
nities in which any individual,
regardless of circumstance, can
arm themselves with a greater
purpose, a deeper passion to
bring about a new kind of change
- redesigning the landscape of
possibility not only for them-
selves o their country, but for
the entire world.

No doubt this is the dawning of
a brand new day where a bold
dream and a unified belief in
something greater can actually

| become a reality. It is this kind of

confirmation that reinforces my
belief that the glass of life is
always half full rather than half
empty and everything is possi-
ble. Often times, however, much

- of what most people envision as

possible is mostly distorted by
the lens through which they see
themselves - which shapes the

A

way in sihich they see the world.

I believe that every generation
has an inherent responsibility to
usher in a higher degree of
change that inspires the next gen-

eration to raise the bar. We owe .

it to ourselves to embrace this
new wave of possibility by plant-
ing seeds of inspiration into the
hearts and minds of the children
of today, giving them the courage
td aspire beyond any perceived
limitation.

It is indeed a defining moment
in our time when any boy or girl
can become so inspired by the
audacity of hope to rise above
the smallness of circumstances
and obtain the ultimate achieve-
ment. Such a monumental
moment challenges us to adopt a
new way of thinking and recog-
nize that ‘our deepest fear is not
that we are inadequate but that
we are powerful beyond all mea-
sures'. The power is within each
of us to make the impossible, pos-
sible.

But while the world seems

Oss Comte ere mostrar ecole

hungry for a new change, we in
this great Bahamas paradise must
ask ourselves - what change will
we inspire?

Many seem to define nation
building by the number of physi-
cal structures that are erected,
but the true essence of building a

nation is really about building the ~
people, one mind at a time, and
formulating systems and pro- -

grammes that seek not so much
to teach, but to inspire one com-
mon cause that drives the peo-
ple towards a deeper sense of

’ belief in themselves.

Many are so focused on finding
the way, they fail to realize that
they must first find the will - it is
the will that produces the way.
Without the passion to think and
dream big, the masses will con-
tinue to settle for small measures
of success.

We must ask ourselves what is
our collective objective as a peo-
ple, as a nation? What unified
dream, goal or aspiration are we
seeking to inspire?

to begin a journey of her own.

- Until we the people make the
commitment to clearly define,
understand and accept a com-
mon goal that motivates us
towards a personal sense of ser-
vice, our individual efforts, no
matter how great, will remain
fragmented.

Final thoughts...

Unlike animals, human beings
cannot survive off food alone, we
also need words. No, not empty,
loud shouting from the mountain
top, but sincere, reassuring words
of substance that inspire and
ignite our passion to conceive,
believe and achieve something
greater.

A great speaker said, " "you can-
not put a big dream into a small

-life". The first step to building a

new kind of change is to recog-
nize that any real sense of change
starts with the person in the mir-
ror, you must start with yourself.

Such a transition towards a
greater purpose requires much
consideration and introspection

Her initial move e into the Rania industry came after
nearly a decade of designing jewellery. For her, the
idea of incorporating jewellery into.clothing was fasci-
nating. "I wanted to create a more unique look than .
what was already out there, and I suppose there wasa _
hole in the market because so many people were miss-
ing this," she said.

Living i in the Bahamas her whole life, Genie wanted

With a focus on building bet-

said, parents must express

HARBOUR Island hotels suffered for
three days last week when a combined fail-
ure of landline phone and internet service
left them “stranded”, without any means

_ of receiving bookings for rooms or dining.

A day in, the communications blackout
extended to cable television after dredging
activities in the harbour allegedly cut the
cable line from Eleuthera to the island, a
less serious disturbance which nonetheless
left ’Brilanders frustrated.

Tracy Barry, owner of The Landing hotel
and restaurant on Harbour Island, was light-

. hearted about the whole affair, saying she

accepts that “human error” happens, but
wonders if it was a consequence of care-
lessness.

“It disabled everything! Before, if the
telephone went down, you might be ‘able to
use the internet to call other people, but
then when the internet went down we were
like ‘Wow, the things we take for granted!’

“Tf they called our hotel to make a reser-
vation it didn’t seem like we were answering
but, thankfully, everywhere else they called
it was the same thing!” she laughed.

Ms Barry said she heard the problem
stemmed from a dredging accident in the
harbour. “You’ve got to wonder if they
checked if (the cables) were there,” she
said. Staff at other major hotels on the pop-
ular Eleutheran destination — where

power outages as the infrastructure has not
kept up with the island’s tourism and pop-
ulation expansion in recent years — said
the shutdown caused them to lose precious
business in an already difficult economic
climate. One hotel representative, who
wished to, remain anonymous, said: “It did
some damage to us because we couldn’t
receive calls to make reservations for the
past few days. So we never knew if anyone
wanted to come.’

“The phone service was ridiculous,”
added an employee at another high-end
Harbour Island property. “We couldn’t
receive any calls for dinner or hotel reser-
vations. No-one could call out, our guests
‘couldn’t make calls. oleh

“Most-of our dinner reservations we
would usually book over the telephone, so
we didn’t receive any calls and we didn’t
have any bookings. Sometimes people
would come in and say they thought we
were closed.”

The cable shutdown affected all residents,

Hoteliers and other Disiie es that rely

on contact with the outside world were left
sitting on their hands until the service
resumed. Keith Wisdom, Director of Public
Affairs at Cable Bahamas, confirmed that
equipment dredging the harbour to make

Fast Ferries (BFF) damaged their line.
_ But none of those who The Tribune
spoke with were certain if the cause of the
cable shutdown was the same as what had
cut-off phone and internet a day earlier,
with this-in itself a source of frustration.

Mr Wisdom said that BFF “took a

However, BFF’s chief marketing officer
Khaalis Rolle said he was unaware of the

IN AN effort to clean
the Bimini shorelines of
debris, a resort on the
small island has joined
forces with the Ministry of

island clean-up campaign.

The campaign, dubbed
“Make Bimini Beautiful”
aims to attract attention
to the island as the possi-
ble host for the 2009
Bahamas Weather Con-
ference.

island officials, residents
of Bimini and staff of
Bimini Bay Resort spent
the entire day cleaning the
streets of the island,
removing old. boats and
discarded vehicles from
the shoreline and other
debris with heavy duty
equipment donated by
Bimini Bay Resort.

“Bringing the Weather
Conference to Bimini is a
vital contribution to the .
success of our economy,”
said island administrator
Sherrick Ellis. We are
ready to introduce Bimini
to'the entire world and
want the process to run
smoothly throughout.”

THE government says it has
developed and already begun to
implement a “measured and real-
istic national strategic plan” to
buffer the economy from some of
the challenges facing the United
States and the world.

Prime Minister Hubert Ingra-
ham noted that government spend-
ing can provide an “important

, stimulus”. to. the economy. How-

ever, he said, capital expenditure
plans may have to be revisited if
revenue performance turns out to
be “particularly weak”.
Additionally, the government
will be reviewing its capital invest-
ment programme to “accelerate
those projects that would con-

tribute most” to dealing with the ©

emerging unemployment problem.

He said this will include most if
not all of the following:

Bahamas avoids storm damage

WITH Tropical Storm Paloma having downgraded to a weak area of
low pressure on Sunday, islands in the northeast Bahamas nEpoueG
scattered showers but-no flooding or damage.

Margaret Symonette, assistant administrator of Crooked Island, said
that though residents were prepared for the worst, they were glad to

receive news of the storm dissipating.

“We were expecting for the ponds to overflow because of them being
situated in low lying areas, especially in the Colonel Hill area, Spring

Point, and Majors Cay, but luckily none of that happened,”

she said. -

According to assistant administrator Ellen Newton in Georgetown,
Exuma, there was far less storm activity on the island than expected.

Mrs Newton said; ““We had a lot of rain, but that’s about it, so other
than that we didn’t have bad weather per se.’

She said though some water settled in the Georgetown area, dice were
no other concerns throughout the island.

MICA MP V Alfred Gray confirmed that with other islands in his con-
stituency receiving no notable damage, it is expected that repairs from
Tropical Storm Hanna and Hurricane Ike will be completed by the end

of November.

With the Atlantic Hurricane Season ending on November 30, officials:

at the meteorology office say it is too early to say whether Paloma — the
sixteenth named storm for the 2008 hurricane season — will be the last.

According to forecaster Arnold King of the metec tology office: “It’s
_ pretty late in the season now, but it’s.still too.early to say whether we will

see another storm.”

Cemetery graves are
littered with garbage

m By ALEX MISSICK
RELATIVES of those buried

i at the Eastern \Cemetery off

Shirley. Street, adjoining St
Matthew’s cemetery, were
shocked to see the condition of
graves, which are littered with
garbage from vagrants living
among the tombstones.
Blankets, empty juice cartons,
forks, used toilet tissues and items

‘of dirty clothing were strewn on

several graves. There’ was also
evidence of cooking utensils.
Many tombs had been ‘soiled
with human faeces by those living
among the dead.
‘Roy Sands, a grave digger at

‘the Eastern Cemetery for more

than 20-years, said it is not

} «uncommon to find persons disre-
i specting the graveyard. He said

this type of thing had been going
on for a long time.
“Many times I come out here, I

‘ meet people laying down sleeping

in the graveyard. In the day time
you may find them sitting up on
the graves or laying on them
asleep, especially in this grave
yard,” he said.

Mr Sands ‘said he would like to .

see more security at the ceme-
tery.

“The government graveyards
are closed at 6pm and what has
happened on many occasions is
that those who sleep in the grave-
yard jump over the wall and find

- a grave. If they had better securi- -

ty of the grounds, I think people
would not be living here and leav-
ing ‘the place littered with
garbage,” Mr Sands said.

and several hundred houses are

He added: “A number of other
public sector projects, including
the development of public recre-
ational spaces, will also be under-
taken. The Bahamas.com website
has been redesigned making it-
both more attractive and interac-
tive. We are significantly increasing
the marketing and advertising of

and print media and we are also
aggressively promoting our country

ed to the United States market as

ing destination which uses the
same currency and enjoys US cus-
toms and immigration pre-clear-
ance facilities.

“The Bahamas has the consid-

from the US to the Bahamas at
competitive rates.”

Increased promotional initia-
tives are also underway in the UK
and Canada and public relations
efforts are being pursued in Asia
and Latin America to position the
Bahamas to benefit when the econ-
omy improves in those regions.

However, Mr Ingraham warned,
that even the best pump in the
world is of little value “if there is
no water in the well”.

“We must all await the return
of consumer confidence in the:
global financial system and most
especially consumer confidence in
the US before we can. get our
tourism sector back on a track com-
pletely.”

President-elect visits his White House

YESTERDAY morning President-elect
Barack Obama boarded a chartered Amer-
ican Airlines plane sent to Chicago for him
by President George Bush to fly him to
Washington for his first introduction to a
White House that from January 20, 2009
will be his home for the next four years.

While the president and president-elect
talked about the future of the nation, Lau-
ra Bush, Washington’s first lady for the
past eight years, introduced the new first-

* lady-to-be — Michelle Obama — to her
* new home.

President George Bush and his gracious
wife were determined to make the transi-
tion for the president-elect and his wife as
smooth as possible. In fact the meeting was
historic, not only to show a troubled world
how quickly partisan politics can be put
aside for the good of a nation, but to lead
the way in drawing all Americans together
as one people to rebuild their broken coun-
try.

America — a nation of diverse races
and cultures — is truly a beacon of hope. In
little more than 200 years it has been able
to take Europe’s tired, “huddled masses”
and black African slaves — and after a
long, heartbreaking and often violent strug-
gle — build a united nation — a United

States of America. This is something that.

after centuries Europeans still have not
been able to do.

In his victory speech President-elect
Obama expressed it eloquently: .

“If there is anyone out there who still
doubts that America is a place where all
things are possible; who still wonders if
the dream of our founders is alive in our
time; who still questions the power of our
democracy, tonight is your answer.”

“It’s the answer,” he told the nation,
“that led those who have been told for so
-long by so many to be cynical, and fearful,

and doubtful of what we can achieve to: °

put their hands on the arc of history and
bend it once more toward the hope of a
better day.”

As President- elect Obama boarded the
aircraft for Washington yesterday we
thought of another.time and another pres-
ident-elect who in November 1860 took a
slow train journey from Springfield, Illi-
nois for Washington and his Inauguration

Day. This president, a Republican, also
had race as an albatross around his neck.
“Honest Abe” Lincoln was an abolitionist
— he strenuously objected to slavery, and
saw the evil in one man being a chattel to

another. In his famous House Divided "

speech he predicted:
““A house divided against itself cannot

stand.’ I believe this government cannot .

endure permanently half slave and half
free. Ido not expect the Union to be dis-
solved — I do not expect the house to fall

— but I do expect it will cease to be divid-

ed. It will become all one thing, or all the
other.”

Met by jubilant crowds at every whistle
stop along the way to. the White. House,
an unsettling report surfaced as his train
neared Baltimore. There was a plot to kill
him. Much against his will — he didn’t
want the indignity of being called a coward
— he bowed to the orders of his security.
His train’s timetable was changed. It
crawled through Maryland in the dead of
night, reaching Baltimore at 3.30am. At 6

o’clock in the morning Lincoln stepped off.

the train in Washington. “Plums delivered
nuts safely” was the code sent back to
headquarters to report his safe arrival. Lin-
coln, a Republican, had crept into a Demo-
cratic Washington, unannounced. |

‘Yesterday — 148 years later — a Demo-
cratic president-elect, a black man, stepped
off a plane in broad daylight to be wel-
comed by a Republican president, a white
man, to. a White House from which he
would direct the‘nation. And in Lincoln’s
prophetic words the moment Bush and
Obama’s hands met the nation’s house
ceased to be divided.

“Tf we could first:know where we are,
and whither we are tending, we could bet-
ter judge what to do, and how to do it,” said
Lincoln. Lincoln faced a country still stag-
gering under the panic of the previous year
with bank failures, tumbling stocks, and

property values shrinking.

President-elect Obama faces the same
problem, the only distinction is that he has

_competent advisers and is supported by a

united nation. With his defiant battle cry —
“Yes, we can!” — there is every reason to
hope that with time he can eventually get
the ship of state back on even keel.



This is a modest
economic stimulus
package proposal

EDITOR, The Tribune.

All indications are that we are

headed for a global recession and
history, has taught us that sucha
downturn can last between eigh-
teen and thirty-six months so a
fairly comprehensive economic
stimulus package is always nec-
essary to navigate a country
through these challenging times.

This has to be driven by the
government for three reasons.
Firstly, “the happiness and pros-
perity of our citizens ...” according
to Thomas Jefferson and this is
true today as it was back in 1811.

Secondly, the government is
the legal guardian of market effi-
ciency and thirdly, the primary
goal of the firm (or the private
sector) is to maximize sharehold-
er value, not the happiness and
prosperity of the citizenry.

The government cannot rely
on the private sector to lead this
charge.

To offer relief on consump-
tion items, part of the $131 mil-
lion in tax concession given to
businesses (as part of the revital-
ization act) should be repealed
and part of the sweeping and pre-
cipitous customs duties increases
and excise taxes should be rolled
back. This will provide balance
in priming the country's econom-
ic pump.

The. PM did not say that the
excise taxes and the current duty
and stamp tax regimes will
increase government revenue by
10 per cent over 2007 figures or
some $146 million.

How is this possible when the
economic growth for this fiscal
year is pegged at 2 per cent and
the government only collects 20
cents out of every dollar generat-
ed in the Bahamian economy?

At 2 per cent growth rate the
government should realize $28
million in revenue increase over

. 2007.

This was possible only through
sweeping tax increases that will
amount to $250 million per
annum or a cool $1 billion over
the next four years. While I
appreciate the government's strat-
egy of avoiding deficit spending,
the social cost to the country is
too great as poverty, crime and
general loss of hope will increase.

Asking the taxpayers to cough
up $1 billion over the next four

. years is a bit much. We must

remember that the consumers

represent the other ‘half of the

supply and demand equation.
They need disposable income to
support businesses.

The single largest-investment
most Bahamians make is in their
homes and every effort should be
made to assist them in keeping
it. Through a “Community Rein-
vestment Act”, the government
should make available to home
owners mortgage relief'in the
amount of $100 million for a peri-
od of one year. For example,
qualified and struggling home
owners can borrow sufficient
money from the government to

ets of literally thousands of home-
owners, positively impacting
household income, savings, and
buying power.

This goes a long way in buying
groceries, fuel, and utilities. As
homes in the Bahamas rarely lose
their value and appreciate in val-
ue during times of plenty, the gov-

* ernment.can actually make mon-

ey on this deal.

A variation of this was suc-
cessfully

implemented by
Franklin Roosevelt as part of his
New Deal during the Great
Depression of the 1930's. Lest we
forget, all economies are driven
by credit.

On the issue of energy relief

ment is to do this, it should
reduce the tax on imported diesel
by 10 per cent from 27.5 pre cent
to 24.5 per cent. This will translate
into some $8.0 million being
passed on to persons in the
tourism, construction, and trans-
portation industries.

As a long term strategy, the
government should seriously con-
sider unemployment insurance,
especially for workers in the fish-
ing, farming, tourism, and con-
struction industries. Since our
economy is intrinsically linked to
the United States and US reces-
sions usually last between six and
eight months, the Bahamas could
consider providing unemploy-
ment benefits for 32 weeks. Leg-
islation could empower the cabi-
net to extend it to 36 weeks and
any period beyond that should
require parliamentary approval.

In these challenging economic
times, the government must lead
the way in stimulating the econo-
my. This must include fiscal aus-
terity, an aggressive capital devel-
opment programme, and a bal-
anced tax relief initiative.

Businesses do supply goods

_ and services and generate jobs,

but if the consumer lacks confi-
dence and disposable income who
will the businesses sell to?

This is a modest economic

‘stimulus package proposal.

John Marquis - a champion

for freedom of the press!.

CROSSING the Atlantic, like many before him, instead of bringing
the sword or the slaves, he brought the pen and freedom of the press!

As a young journalist from England, entering the stage on Bahami-
an soil, where the era of change-had turned the page in political his-
tory, John Marquis was immediately sucked into the vortex of the
political culture, only to find that the relics of oppression of the past had
changed the colour of their faces and the method of oppression.

He held on to his pen, like a great sword, and like a swashbuckler

“ swung into motion.

The late, great Sir Etienne Dupuch and The Tribune, champion
among champions, welcomed the young, brave and unique reporter
John Marquis. Many .racial slurs were dumped upon him for calling an
ace an ace, and a spade a spade. ;

For the sake of truth and a free press he was forced out of the
Bahamas. Crossing the Atlantic ocean in grief - knowing he left behind
a people paralysed by fear. Bahamian history would wheel him in |
once more: As Martin Luther King once said: “Truth crushed to the
ground will rise again!” Now here he is again - turning yet another page
in Bahamian journalistic history

As he is about to close the book for the last time - where he again
called an ace an ace, a spade a spade or a jack a jack, in spite of many
who cried out for his removal from these shores, nevertheless, still he
stood and held on to his pen (with the daughter of the late, great Sir Eti-
enne Dupuch, Eileen Dupuch Carron), with the-very essence of The
Tribune motto:- “Nullius addictus iurare in verba magistri - (being
bound to swear to the dogmas of no master)!

: As I understand, John Marquis will be leaving the Bahamas in six
months to cross the Atlantic Ocean once more! “We may stand on the
sands of time, but we can’t hold back the tide!”

To all the reading public, I hope you follow suit and give the man his
“tribute” while he is still with us. I’m certain that it will take more than
six months if everyone who appreciated his Insight, truth and coura-
geous spirit for freedom of the press!

© In brief.
Call for new
school in
West Grand
Bahama

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



FREEPORT - In the wake of
the health and environmental
concerns at the Eight Mile Rock
High School, some stakeholders
believe that a new school should
be constructed at a new site in
West Grand Bahama.

Troy Garvey, PTA president
at the school, said Eight Mile
Rock is the largest settlement in
the country and a new high
school is needed. .

He said that the current cam-
pus is unsuitable and has been
plagued by constant environ-
mental problems, despite
repeated repair works over the
years.

The issues at the school came
to a head last month when sev-
eral classrooms were declared
unfit for use as a result of exten-
sive rodent, pigeon, bat, and
mould infestations.

There were also complaints of
unpleasant odours due to sewer
back-ups in the bathrooms.

The school was closed for
three weeks after students and
teachers became ill. Since then,
health screenings have been
held and the school has been
deemed safe by environmental
officials — except for four class-
rooms which remain closed.

Alternative accommodations
have been arranged for some
students at the Stephen’s Parish
Hall, Bethel Deliverance
Church, and in the school’s

gymnasium.

‘Mr Garvey, who is known as
an outspoken community
activist and resident of Eight
Mile Rock, said a new school
could be built further west.

He also noted that the current
school campus could be used as
a technical and vocational facili-
ty for EMR students.

.“Thave children going to this
school, I think the students here
deserve to have a new school,”

he told Education Minister Carl |

Bethel.

Bahamas Union of Teachers
President Belinda Wilson said
while alternative accommoda-
tions are working out well for
the time being, the government
needs to look closely at the
school campus.

“Tn the long run, there has to
’ be acloser look at EMRHS
with a view for expansion and
going to a new site,” she said.

Although many of the teach-
ers at the school agreed with Mr
Garvey, Minister Carl Bethel
said he does not think it is possi-
ble to relocate the school.

“The reason for the location
of the high school on this partic-
ular site has to do with the pop-
ulation. The current school was

put here for a reason because of,

its centralised location,” he said.

“If there is a need for a pro-
gramme of redevelopment and
renewal that over time will give
you the same impact, that is
something we can certainly look
at in terms of overtime adding
classroom blocks, taking others
out, and reconfiguring the site.

“But the difficulty of moving

_ the high school out of Eight
Mile Rock would result in sig-
nificantly higher recurrent costs,
in terms of having to bus the
bulk of your students to a more
remote location,” he said.

Mr Bethel said that the min-
istry has presented to the union
the fourth draft of a 10-year
strategic plan to address how it
can best serve “far flung” com-
munities in the country.

“What we are working on is
how we can put schools in a
more centralised location
because it is a question that
affects other districts, as well as
the western side of Grand °
Bahama,” he said.

November fuel
surcharge drops
in Grand Bahama

THE Grand Bahama Pow-
er Company announced yes-
terday that the fuel surcharge
for November has dropped to .
16.4 cents, a drop of eight
cents per kwh since Septem-
ber 2008.

This trend is consistent with
the decline in the market price
for oil, the company said, _~
adding that the reduction rep-
resents a decline of over 30
per cent since September.

“Grand Bahama Power
Company purchases fuel in
bulk to reduce costs and to
maintain a consistent supply
for the island’s needs.

The cost of the fuel is
pegged to the market price
and the time of purchase,”
noted the company in a state-
ment.

Teacher: 30 per cent of students suffer





from undiagnosed learning difficulties

@ By LLOYD ALLEN
Tribune Staff Reporter

A SIGNIFICANT number of students in
the Bahamas may be suffering from undi-
agnosed learning disgrders — a fact which
some believe could be a major factor in
the under-performance of the education
system.

Kim Kooskalis, principal of Blairwood
Academy — a special needs school for chil-
dren suffering from learning inhibitors such
as dyslexia and attention deficit and hyper-

tension disorder (ADHD) - said that many.

of the 105 students enrolled at her school
were not diagnosed until grade four. Some
were not diagnosed until high-school.
Estimating that cases of mild to moder-
ate learning challenges exceed 30 per cent
of the overall school population, Mrs
Kooskalis says that often cases of ADHD,
dyslexia, aspergers autism, or even hearing

‘difficulties go undiagnosed due to a num-

ber of factors:
These can include denial by parents, mis-

“Parents don’t want to believe that their child
has a problem, and may think that
acknowledging it makes their child retarded. fi



diagnosis at school, or lack of concern.

“There is huge denial out there, many
parents would say ‘not my child’ — it’s a
common mentality among Bahamians. Par-
ents don’t want to believe that their child
has a problem, and may think that
acknowledging it makes their child retard-
ed, and they feel embarrassed that their
child is not functioning at the appropriate
grade level,” she said.

Mrs Kooskalis pointed out that a child
suffering from any one of these disorders
could have an above-average IQ, and only
lack the ability to learn reading skills like
other students.

She says some of the common signs of

Kim Kooskalis

learning challenges are inability to focus for
extended periods, behavioral problems,
difficulty reading and spelling, unfamiliar-
ity with spelling rules, and varied compre-
hension issues. ;

Though severe dyslexia, ADHD, or
hearing problems are usually identified
right away,:Mrs Kooskalis said mild to
moderate cases often go undetected and
end up getting worse.

Most children spend between one and
two years at her school catching up to their
grade level.

Mrs Kooskalis said more needs to be
done to identify and help children with
special needs.

Assistant director of government’s Spe-
cial Education Unit Carolynn Hall-
Knowles said when students in public
schools are identified as having a learning
disorder, they are temporarily removed to
a centre where they can learn the skills
necessary to function in a regular class-
room.

She added that students who are able
to cope with their learning challenges with-
out leaving a regular school curriculum
still face an obstacle when it comes to

national examinations.

Mrs Hall-Knowles said that for learn-
ing challenged students, there needs to be
an alternative for the BGCSE examina-
tion in particular.

She said there needs to be alternatives
for blind or mute, but otherwise intelli-
gent students, so they can realise their full
potential.

Mrs Hall-Knowles suggests oral exams
for non-readers, interpreters for deaf stu-
dents, and solo or small group testing for
those with other disorders.

Paying homage to the

JEFENDERS

Laing hails

“ASSISTANT Commissioner of Police Eugene Cartwright lays a wreath at FREEPORT - State Minister for Finance Zhivargo Laing

defend world peace.

Mr Laing said that many have paid the ultimate sacrifice with
their lives for “our freedom.”

“We must be grateful to the leaders of our nation who
fought to defend world peace”, he said on Sunday.

“Tf the outcome was different, we would be living in a far dif-
ferent world than we now live in, a world that would probably ©
have less freedom, less prosperity, and less social advance-
ments.”

Minister Laing was speaking at the annual Remembrance
Day Parade held at 3pm at Martin Town Primary School at
‘Eight Mile Rock, where students from various schools on the
island assembled for a short ceremony.

Bahamian war veteran Cecil Hepburn of Eight Mile Rock
was among’the five persons honoured. Also honoured were

Death toll
rises to 94

in Haiti school
collapse

@ PETIONVILLE, Haiti

U.S., FRENCH and Hait-
ian firefighters used sonar,:
cameras and dogs Monday
in the search for victims at a
collapsed Haitian school,
but as the stench of death
rose from the wreckage,
they no longer expected to
find anyone else alive,

‘ according to Associated
Press...
Three days after the con-
‘ crete building suddenly col-
lapsed during a children's
party, killing at least 94 stu-
‘dents and adults and severe-
ly injuring 150 more, Capt.
Michael Istvan of Fairfax
County, Va., said the chance
of more survivors was
remote. He also said the
death toll won't likely go
much higher. |
Several bodies were

pulled out Monday, caked in ©

concrete,dust, and radar and
cameras located several
more. —

But there have been no
indications of.survivors.since
four.children;were pulled, ;.

from the wreckage Saturday. - : ‘

morning, said Daniel Vigee,
head of a Martinique-based
French rescue team.
‘Rescuers were probing
spots where neighbors
claimed to have heard voic-
es or received cell phone
calls from trapped survivors,
without success. Finally,
before dawn Monday, they
opened up new areas to
search by tearing down a
two-story high concrete slab
that had been hanging pre-
cariously since the collapse.
Istvan's firefighters were
flown in by the U.S. Agency
for International Develop-
ment; and an eight-person
military team from the U.S.
Southern Command also
helped. They had warned

that removing the wall could -

be too dangerous to rescuers
and any potential survivors,
but Haitians removed it any-
way using hand-held power
tools as hopes dimmed.

It was unclear how many
people were in the building
when it collapsed, though
the school is believed to
have had about 500 stu-
dents. Haitian officials said -
some had time to escape
when it began to fall, and it
was not known how many
were pulled out unharmed
on Friday.

_ Some students weren't at |
the school during the col-
lapse because La Promesse
was holding a party requir-
ing a donation 25 gourdes
(63 cents) that poorer fami-
lies could not afford, said
Deputy Steven Benoit, who
represents the area in the
Chamber of Deputies.

"A lot of students had
their lives saved because
they couldn't get in," Benoit
said.

The-tragedy at the school
— built along a ravine ina
slum below a relatively
wealthy enclave near Port-
au-Prince — has brought
more attention to chronic
poverty in Haiti, where
neighborhoods rise up in
chaotic jigsaws and building
codes are widely ignored.

President Rene Preval has
made several visits to the
disaster site, blaming the
collapse on constant govern-
ment turnover and a general
disrespect for the law.

"There is a code already,
but they don't follow it.
What we need is political
stability," Preval told the
AP.

Govt to launcha —

jobless relief plan

FROM page one

_ confidence at an all-time low,

the government has had to
move to utilise capital expendi-
ture on major projects through-
out the country to provide some
stimulus to the domestic econo-
my.

“In light of this, my govern-
ment will put in place various

Measures to mitigate the impact

of joblessness or reduced
income. Hence, the government
is considering the implementa-
tion of a temporary unemploy-
ment assistance programme to

‘be administered by the Nation-

al Insurance Board.

“Although unemployment
benefits are not presently
offered, NIB’s primary objec-
tive is to ease the burden. My
government will, therefore,
cause to be allocated some of
the excess funds accumulated in
the Medical Benefit Branch of
the NIB Fund to provide week-
ly unemployment assistance
payments to workers who have
recently become unemployed or
placed on reduced work weeks.

“Since these payments are
being financed from the excess
in the former Industrial Benefit
Branch, the sustainability of
future pensions will not be
affected,” he said.

To access these benefits, per-
sons must have been employed
for an unspecified “minimum
number of years.” There are
also other “rules and stipula-
tions” that have yet tobe for-
mulated, prior to the introduc-
tion of this plan.

However, these “additional
measures” will be introduced as

necessary, and as the evolving
situation dictates, Mr Ingraham
said. y

“My government will contin-
ue to monitor closely ongoing
developments, ensuring that we
are properly positioned to make
the appropriate short-term
responses without damaging the
early return to our medium-
term growth path when the dan-
ger passes. In the early 1990s,
following upon the first Gulf
War when my first. administra-
tion came to office, we faced a
critical economic and social sit-
uation.

“We worked tirelessly to
reverse that situation and we
succeeded. We then dealt with
the crisis caused by the collapse
of the high-tech bubble in 2000
and the crisis caused by the ter-
rorism events of September,
2001.

“Our good management of
the people’s business during
each of these crises facilitated a
quick recovery in the years that
followed. I have no doubt that
my government has the experi-
ence and the expertise to enable
us to recover from yet another
crisis not of our making and
over which we have no control.

Bahamians can trust in our pre- -

paredness and our experience
to do what is right. God willing,
we will succeed,” he said.

Mr Ingraham promised that,
as conditions warrant, in the
weeks and months ahead he will
address the nation with updates
on the evolution of this eco-
nomic crisis - its impact upon
the country, and the effective-
ness of the government’s plans
to the meet these challenges.

All-Share Index, with only a slight increase in the third quarter.
In comparison to last year, this represents an 11.8 per cent
decline for the first two quarters and a small gain of 0.7 per cent
during the third quarter.
Mr Stubbs said the economic meltdown has the potential to
further erode consumer and investor confidence if the current

: - trend in tourism persists.

Already, the tourism downturn has had a multiplier impact on
the rest of the economy, which if it persists will leave persons
unable to meet debt repayments and create a strain on the bank-

* ing sector.

Mr Stubbs added that the international component of the
Bahamian capital markets had been adversely affected by the
international financial meltdown, with investment fund adminis-
trators reporting falling net asset values (NAVs) for the invest-
ment funds they handled as a consequence of exposure to sub-
prime mortgages and the fallout resulting from the global melt-
down.

Mr Stubbs said market participants had further reported falling
revenues as a result of shrinking assets under management.

He added that it was imperative that the Securities Commis-
sion was in a position to ensure that persons operating in the
country were fit and proper, adhered to good corporate gover-
nance principles, were not co-mingling accounts of clients with
their operating account, and that there was the appropriate dis-

_semination of information so that investors can make more
’ informed decisions.

Mr Stubbs said that in this climate the Securities Commission’s

Tole was even more important.

_He added that the Securities Commission expected to enhance
its regulatory. capabilities through the implementation of a new
Securities Industries Act and related regulations, and by the
implementation of recommendations from a recently-completed
operations review of the Commission.

“ Both the Commission and the accounting profession (specifi-
cally through BICA) are required to provide guidance and advice
to participants to the capital markets, to ensure that investors and
the public are properly informed during these uncertain and

challenging times,” he concluded.

copies of the writs were available

when The Tribune asked another
clerk for the copies, the reporter
was told that when it came to "the
newspapers" there were differ-
ent rules to obtain the documents,
and that the employee was not
going to risk getting in trouble by
providing the copies.

A letter of request. subject to
approval by the Supreme Court
Registrar had to be provided
before The Tribune could obtain
copies of the writs, the clerk said.

‘After a passionate telephone
conversation with The Tribune's
news editor, who tried to explain
to the clerk that the matter was a
public record, the clerk said to
take it up'with Supreme Court |
Registrar Donna Newton.

The Tribune was unable to see
Ms Newton, however her assis-
tant said to return with the letter
of request before any copies
could be given.

The letter was provided about
an hour later, but The Tribune
was told the registrar had left the
building and to speak with the
supervisor of the registry. This
supervisor never spoke with The
Tribune, but sent word with
another clerk that the copies were
unavailable because the original
documents had pu been
returned."

However, despite this, The Tri-
bune was able to review the doc-
uments and take copious notes
from the writs, and subsequently
write Monday's lead story about
government's legal action.

While the obstruction at the
Supreme Court Registry opened
the way for The Tribune to sug-
gest to Mr Barnett that this was a
reason for government to swiftly
implement a Freedom of Infor-
mation Act, he said a law already
exists that allows the public access
to these documents.

"So you, as a matter of right
have the ability to see a.copy of
any writ and any judgment and
that's what the law says. The law
is very clear," he said.

On Friday, The Tribune tried
to get copies of four civil suits
filed in the Supreme Court by the

Majesty’s Prison.

It is alleged that McNeil,
sometime between Saturday,
November 17, 2007, and Sun-
day, November 18, 2007, by
means of unlawful harm,
intentionally caused the death
of Harl Taylor.

Taylor, 37, an internation-
ally-known handbag designer,
was found stabbed to death at
Mountbatten House, West
Hill Street, nearly a year ago,
two days after Dr Thaddeus
McDonald, 59, a senior acad-
emic at the College of the
Bahamas, was found blud-
geoned to death, apparently
with a clothing iron, in his
Queen Street guest house.

Despite widespread specu-
lation that the two murders
might have been related,
police have not linked them.


THE TRIBUNE



@ BY BISHOP NEIL ELLIS

| he Bahamas _ has
entered one of the

most challenging times of our
history — culturally, socially

and economically. While our.

country has weathered such
storms of life before, there are
many adult Bahamians who
have never before had to con-
front such challenges.

To mark a safe trail through
the present troubling obstacles
will require a multifaceted
approach that addresses the
whole person — mind, body
and spirit.

The way forward will also
demand the earnest and honest
participation of all Bahamians
of goodwill, especially those of
the household of faith.

The current situation afflict-
ing the United States and, con-
sequently, the Bahamas — high
gasoline prices, increased. elec-
tricity prices owing to the astro-
nomical cost of crude oil, the
mortgage crisis and declining
tourism arrivals — has been
pegged as a “financial crisis”.
Because of this, I’m concerned
that our community may search
for relief in ways dealing only
with money matters.

It is laudable that the

Bahamas government is pro-
viding welfare packages and
giving mortgage relief to fore-
stall or preyent a flood of fore-
closures like the crisis in the
United States that has left many
in a desperate search to find
shelter for their families.

- However, handouts are solu-
tions of the moment only. We
have to take the holistic
approach to hold our society
together.

It is very necessary to ‘do so,
unless we'wish to see our coun-
try spiral into hopelessness and
eventual anarchy.

We have already seen an
increasing number of Bahami-
ans working reduced days:

’ We have begun to see layoffs

A way forward in
the economic crisis



“This is Bahamas’ opportunity

catastrophe, but a light to our
troubled world.



and even job losses.

With the current rate of
financial downtown, there is a
high likelihood that there will
be more budget tightening and
downsizing, as businesses strug-
gle to stay afloat.

Change on this of this magni-
tude will affect the whole coun-
try, but will shake the very foun-
dations of the homes touched
directly.

I propose four main avenues
of structured, positive interven-
tions.

First of all, churches, govern-
ment agencies and the busi-
nesses most nearly affected
must activate their professional
counselling programmes.

If these do not exist, it is
essentjal to secure such services.
This is not a suggestion to be
brushed aside or taken lightly.
Professional counselling will not
only give those who are hurt-
ing a life-line to the emotional
stability. they need. to weather
the hurricane, but will also help
to prevent many from making
unwise decisions from which
there will be no turning back.

I am thankful that Mount
Tabor Full Gospel Baptist
Church has been divinely
inspired to prepare in this
regard.

Not so long ago, we launched
a multifaceted. counselling pro-
gramme, that, provides for all
married, single and

20% &

divorced persons, those who are
experiencing job and financial
crises, for example.

Our doors are open to all in
need in this regard.

Secondly, if we wish to be of

real service to our people and
country in this time of trial, we
will not do anything that will
deepen or extend the culture of
dependence and the sense of
entitlement that already afflicts
so many sectors of our popula-
tion.
- If we run food programmes,
our people should be encour-
aged to see themselves as dig-
nified partners in the venture
and not as recipients of welfare
for which they bear no respon-
sibility. .

Everyone should help in the
programme and everyone
should pay what they can, even

‘if it’s just a dollar:

In this way, the truly indigent

‘will be able to hold their heads

up and have hope.
Thirdly, we must hasten to
educate our people as to how

. to deal beneficially with a finan-

cial crisis — how to get the best
value from out spending, when
to refrain from spending, how to
cook inexpensive but nutritious
meals.

What is of great importance,
we must teach our people that it
is sometimes necessary to delay

. gratification and help them to
see the difference between |

needs and wants.

Fourthly, government,
churches and other non-gov-
ernmental agencies must co-
operate to identify a consistent
approach to our current chal-
lenges.

Bahamians often proclaim
proudly and even fiercely that
we are a Christian nation.

This is our opportunity to
give substance to our boast. We
must all be prepared to open
our hearts, our fund of wisdom,
our pockets to family, friends,
church brethren, neighbours,
colleagues, the man on the
street, the stranger within our
gates. ©

Everyone, even the poorest
among us, has something to
give, whether it be money or a
simple word of encouragement
to buoy up hope.

Finally, it is my view that the
government should cause to
happen a summit focused on
this crises.

I support the president of the
Nassau Guardian, the President
of Colina General and lawyer
John Bostwick IJ in their call
for a non-partisan national dis-
cussion. ,

We are in a season of change.
Change can bring crisis but
every crisis, every problem is
also the foundation for oppor-
tunity, a canvas upon which we
can paint new and improved sit-
uations and lives.

I call all Bahamians of faith to
prayer.

We must pray without ceas-
ing, but God asks us to do what
we can while we pray.

Even in taking action, if we
do so in the will of God, he will
be with us.

This is Bahamas’ opportunity
not to be a statistic of societal
catastrophe, but a light to our
troubled world.

The Word tells us to be
encouraged and trust in the
Lord in all _ things: and let His

». praise continually, be;in our :

mouths.

“This year, we wanted to prove that

they had the team to beat the Hurricanes

the difference.

“We didn’t see him when we played
them, so we didn’t know what to expect,”
he said. “He had’a very good game.

“But once we cut down on our mis-

Strikers put out the Blue Flames 31-1 é



AS THE Catholic Diocesan
Primary School Basketball
Tournament winds down,
teams continue to jostle for late
season playoff seeding in prepa-
ration for the playoffs.

The St Cecilia Strikers
helped their postseason cause
with a decisive 31-16 win over
the Our Lady’s Blue Flames
yesterday on the road.

The Strikers improved.to a
3-2 record.

Despite a slow start by both
teams, St Cecilia’s got out to
an early advantage with a 6-2
lead by the end of the first
quarter.

- The Strikers reserves picked
up the defensive intensity in the
second quarter and with a
swarming defense with active
hands, limited the Flames to no
field goals in the period.

St Cecilia’s led 11-2 heading
into the halt.

With much of the starters
back on the floor in the third
quarter, the Strikers enacted a
full court trap turning good
defense into easy transition bas-
kets on the opposite end of the
floor.

Their defense dominated for
much of the half, forcing the
Flames into rushed shots and
frantic possessions.

A late scoring flurry by the
Flames brought about the
game’s final margin.

Marcellas Wilkinson led the
Strikers with 11 points while
team captain Ivoine Ingraham
finished with six. Stephen
Humes had six points off the
bench while Tajare Hudson fin-
ished with four.

Charles Cooper led the Blue
Flames with seven while David
Mackey finished with six.

Simon defeats Federer
Andy Murray beats Roddick

fi By PAUL ALEXANDER
Associated Press Writer

SHANGHAI, China (AP) —
Roger Federer's back was fine.
His game still needs mending.

Gilles Simon defeated Fed-
erer 4-6, 6-4, 6-3 at the Masters
Cup on Monday in the Swiss
star's first match since a sore
back forced him out of his last
tournament.

Later, Andy Murray of
Britain beat Andy Roddick of
the United States 6-4, 1-6, 6-1 in
the other Red group match.

The second-ranked Federer
said earlier he didn't know what
to expect when he played his
first round-robin match in the
season-ending event for the top
eight players.

It turned out to be flashes of
his usual brilliance, then a quick
slide downhill. Federer faltered
late in the second'set with a rash
of errors that allowed Simon to
get back into the match.

"Definitely today shots
maybe I miss I normally don't
miss," Federer said. "I think
that's just lack of practice and
just uncertainty where my back
was today. Now at least I have a
match under my belt, especially
three sets, and I hope I can play
better in the next match."

Federer withdrew from the
Paris Masters 10 days ago
because of his sore back.

"I was sort of skeptical going
into the match because the
practice sessions haven't been

hard at all," Federer said. "I
really tried to not push it at all.
So I was actually happy that the
back felt OK."

The four-time Masters Cup
winner also gave credit to
Simon, who won their only pre-

vious meeting, also in three sets,

in Toronto in July.

"The better you play, the bet-
ter he plays," Federer said.
"He's quite a unique player and
he makes you work hard and
runs very well."

Federer also lost his first
match at last year's Masters
Cup but went on to win the title.

"It's great," he said. "It's the .

only tournament where I really
have a chance after losing first
rounds."

' The ninth-ranked Simon,
added to the field when No. 1
Rafael Nadal withdrew with
knee tendinitis, started finding

‘ the lines and capitalized on Fed-

erer's slip in play in the last two
sets.

Simon ripped a backhand
crosscourt winner on break
point as Federer served at 3-4 in
the third set, then served his
seventh ace on match point.

"It's always hard to win
against Federer," Simon said.
"I know that I have to play my
best tennis. I just wanted to give
everything on the court. I

AP Sports Writer

PHILADELPHIA (AP) —
Underdogs or favourites, the
New York Giants keep finding
waystowin.

Eli Manning threw two
touchdown passes, Brandon
Jacobs had two TD runs and
the Giants held on to beat the
Philadelphia Eagles 36-31 on
Sunday night and further dis-
tance themselves from the pack
in the NFL's toughest division.

If there was any doubt the
Giants rule the NFC East, the
Super Bowl champions erased
it with another hard-fought win
on the road. "This is one of the
toughest places to play," cor-
nerback Sam Madison. said.
"It's extremely tough to come
here and get a win. It wasn't a
statement game, but we needed
to win."

The Eagles had the ball at
their own 45 with 1:55 left, but Brian West-
brook was stopped by Chase Blackburn on
fourth-and-1. "It was exhilarating," Blackburn
said of the clinching tackle.

The Giants (8-1) are two games ahead of
the Washington Redskins and three in front
of the Eagles (5-4) and Dallas Cowboys. New
York is 3-0 against its division rivals, but has
only one other win against an opponent with a
winning record. :

Perhaps the Giants' easy first-half schedule
— their first eight opponents are a combined
27-44 — was a reason oddsmakers made the
Eagles a three-point favorite.

Miffed by the prognosticators' pick, the
Giants proved them wrong. They did get help
from the referees on two close calls in the sec-
ond half.

Jacobs lost the ball at the goal line on his 2-
yard TD run that made it 36-24. The Eagles
challenged, but officials upheld the play.

The Giants went ahead 27-24 two plays after
a reversed call gave them a first down at the
Eagles 3. Manning's 17-yard pass to Kevin Boss
on third-and-10 was initially ruled illegal
because he appeared to release the ball from
beyond the line of scrimmage. Replays showed
Manning's back foot was behind the line, and
Jacobs ran in from the 3 for the go-ahead score.

"I think the way the rule is written, it was
worth taking a shot at it," said Manning, who
urged Coughlin to challenge the call. "If you
have one toe on the line of scrimmage, then it's
a legal pass."

The Eagles were surprised the play was over-
turned. "I don't know what they were looking
at," defensive tackle Mike Patterson said.

Donovan McNabb had three TD passes for
the Eagles, but the Giants shut down West-
brook.

The defense stopped the

back ‘had at least 123 combined

against the Giants.

"T have to find a way of mak-
; ing the first downs," West-
brook said. "I have to do a better job."

Jacobs finished with 126 of New York's 219
yards rushing and the Giants held the ball for
almost 40 minutes.

The Eagles took a 24-20 lead on McNabb's 7-
yard TD pass to Hank Baskett on the opening
drive of the third quarter. ~

But a fumble by Jacobs helped the Eagles get
back in it. Jacobs lost the ball while hurdling
Asante Samuel as Chris Gocong delivered a
hard hit. Patterson recovered it at the Giants 44.

McNabb hit Jason Avant over the middle
for a 10-yard TD pass to cutitto17-14._.

The Eagles used a trick play to take a 7-0 lead
after Patterson's interception set them up at
the Giants 9. Patterson rumbled 21 yards after
he picked off Manning's pass for his first career
interception.

Wide receiver DeSean Jackson scored on a 9-
yard run, taking the snap out of a shotgun for-
mation with McNabb lined up wide to the left.
The Miami Dolphins rejuvenated the single
wing this season, and it was the first time the
Eagles used a variation of that gimmick offense.

Manning tossed a 17-yard TD pass to Plaxi-
co Burress to tie it at 7. Burress beat safety
Brian Dawkins, who covered the wideout

. because the Eagles sent a cornerback on a blitz.

Giants halfback Ahmad Bradshaw stripped
Quintin Demps on the kickoff and Blackburn

Federer appeared to take a
few points to loosen up. Then,
after wasting three break points
as Simon served at 1-1 in the
first set, he broke through for a
3-2 edge, taking the game with a
forehand that Simon couldn't
touch.

Federer staved off a break
point in the next game and fin-
ished off the set with a second-
serve ace and seemed 'to be
headed for a quick victory.

They traded early breaks in
the second set, and Simon had a
great chance to forge ahead but
squandered three break points
as Federer started to look tight
while serving at 3-4.

Federer smacked a routine

“overhead and an easy forehand

volley into the net to fall behind
0-30, then found the net again
with a swinging forehand off a
short ball at deuce, but man-
aged to hold.

Federer wasn't as lucky in his
next service game, with Simon
breaking to take the set and lev-
el the match with a great back-
hand winner after a long rally.

Federer had to rally from 0-
40 while serving at 2-3 in the
deciding set, pumping his fist
and shouting "Come on!"
Simon replicated the escape act
in the next game, with Federer
helping with two forehands that
sailed way long. Simon got the

It was Chelsea's ninth straight

Celtics dominate Pistons
in Iverson’s home debut

@ By LARRY LAGE
AP Sports Writer :



AUBURN HILLS, Michigan
(AP) — Allen Iverson was wel-
comed to the Motor City with a
standing ovation so loud that
the public-address announcer
couldn't be heard.

Then, the Boston Celtics qui-
eted the crowd and spoiled Iver-
son's first game at home with
the Detroit Pistons.

Tony Allen scored 12 of his
23 points in the pivotal second
quarter, lifting Boston to an 88-
76 win on Sunday night.

Iverson said he got "chill-
bumps" when he was intro-

duced and heard the roar of the |

crowd.

"That's all you want when
you get traded," said Iverson,
who has been dealt twice in two
years. "You want to get that ini-
tial feeling of how they embrace
and accept you."

A sold-out crowd stayed in
the game during a closely con-
tested first quarter before being
silenced in the second, when
Boston used four reserves to
outscore Detroit 30-10.

"That's our job," Allen said.
"If we don't come in and give
the team a lift, we aren't doing
what we are supposed to do."

The defending champions
didn't have any trouble keep-
ing their big cushion in a
rematch of the Eastern Confer-
ence finals.

Iverson finished with 10
points on 4-of-11 shooting with
four assists and four turnovers.

Detroit acquired the former
league MVP, Denver Nugget
and Philadelphia 76er last week
for All-Star point guard
Chauncey Billups, key reserve
Antonio McDyess and throw-
in Cheikh Samb. .

The Pistons fell to 0-2 with
Iverson. ,;

"I'm not up here to talk
about how long it's going to
take for everything to look
smooth," coach Mike Curry
said. "He did a lot of good
things and I'm going to encour-
age him to be even more

aggressive."

Boston coach Doc Rivers said
the Pistons will be better, but
it's going to take time.

"When you get a new play-
er, especially one that is going
to have his hands on the ball, it
changes 75 percent of your
offense," Rivers said. "The fans
don't understand how hard it is
to change a point guard in the
middle of a season, but it is
tough. It changes everything."

The Pistons miss Billups' abil-
ity to run the offense and:
McDyess' shooting touch off
the bench. McDyess will be
bought out of his contract,
according to his agent Andy
Miller, and the Pistons desper-
ately need the power forward
back.

The Celtics had enough to

eliminate Detroit in Game 6 of -

the conference finals on its
home court and clearly seemed
to be the better team again.

Boston didn't even need all
of its stars to shine in the easy
win.

Ray Allen had 17 points,
Kevin Garnett scored eight on
4-of-15 shooting and Paul Pierce
added seven on 3-of-10 shoot-
ing. Rajon Rondo scored 13
points and Eddie House had
eight points as one of four
reserves with at least six points
for the Celtics.

"Our bench has been phe-
nomenal," Rivers said. "We've
started out slow in three or four
games, but the energy of the
bench has been tremendous.
There isn't one guy that carries
them." :

Detroit's Tayshaun Prince
had 23 points and eight
rebounds.

"Through all of this, I love
how Tayshaun is staying aggres-
sive," Curry said.

Rasheed, Wallace had 10

points on 4-of-17 shooting and

11 rebounds. Reserve Will
Bynum added 11 points.
Richard Hamilton, who was
0-for-8, scored just three points
on free throws.
"They do a good job of trap-
ping Rip," Curry said. "They

DENVER (AP) — The
Nuggets waived Antonio
McDyess one week after
they obtained him from
Detroit along with Chauncey
Billups and Cheikh Samb in
a swap for Allen Iverson.

The move was expected
as Denver tries to cut costs.
‘McDyess! agent, Andy
Miller, had said the chances
of him playing in Denver
were "very low to zero."

McDyess,.who had two
previous stints with Denver,
hasn't appeared in any
games for the Nuggets since
the trade.

The 34-year-old forward
has averaged 13.4 points and
7.7 rebounds per game in 12
seasons. He averaged 7
points and 4 rebounds in two

‘ games for Detroit before the
trade.

Besides the Nuggets and
Pistons, he has played for
the New York Knicks and
Phoenix Suns.



Allen said. "That's something
that we have to fix and we have
to stop. When we have a team
down, we have to keep mov-

calls for business relief

* $330m worth of loans now

~ By NEIL HARTNELL

Business Editor

THE Cen- [|
tral Bank of
the Bahamas
has admitted
the Bahamian
economy
could slip into
recession by
year-end, with
the increase in |}
problem loans
to the business
sector leading
the Chamber of Commerce’s
president to yesterday reiterate
his call for a cut in interest rates.

The Centra! Bank, in its
monthly economic update for
September, said commercial or
business loans had experienced
“the most significant weaken-
ing” out of all loan categories,
with the arrears rate - loans 31
days past due (at least one
repayment missed) - standing
at 13.6 per cent for the private
sector.

This means that! more than

mye

- one in every. lo loans to.the
Bahamian business community -

- 1.4.out of every 10, to be exact
- was in arrears as at end-Sep-

' tember 2008. The banking sec- .

tor has about $1 billion in out-
standing loans to the business

‘sector, with the Central Bank

data indicating that some $136
million is in arrears.

The banking industry regula-
tor said the percentage of com-
mercial loans in arrears had
increased from 9.3 per cent in
December 2007, and from 10.5
per cent as at the year-over-year
comparative for September
2007.

Dionisio D’Aguilar, the
Chambcr president, said the
commerciakloan statistics again
backed his call for the Govern-
ment and Central Bank to cut
the discount rate, the interest
the latter charges on loans to
commercial banks.

That, in turn, would feed into
a reduction in Bahamian Prime,
the rate at which the commer-
cial banks lend to each other
and should, in theory, be passed
on to borrowers via reduced
monthly payments on all loans
whose rates are linked to Prime.

The Chamber chief said that
to ensure any interest rate cut
benefited only those businesses
and, borrowers with existing
loans and debt repayments, and
was not used for credit creation,

Baha Mar absorbing



‘Business Editor

aha Mar is currently

having to absorb net

losses running at a

rate of $10-$15 mil-

lion per annum at its Cable
Beach resorts, sources familiar
with the situation told Tribune
Business, with the two proper-
ties “at least 25 per cent off
where we’d like to be” for the
upcoming Thanksgiving period.
Robert Sands, Baha Mar’s
senior vice-president for gov-
ernment and public affairs,
declined to comment yesterday
when contacted by this news-
paper about the loss figure pro-
vided to Tribune Business by

. informed business sources.

However, he acknowledged
that while it. was too early for a
fully accurate picture to emerge,
with just over two weeks to go
before the Thanksgiving holi-
day period travel market con-
ditions and bookings were “still
extremely soft”.

With room booking windows
having reduced to as little as
one week before travellers tak-
ing their vacation, Mr Sands
told Tribune Business: “We’ve

seen some turn-up in business
based on what’s happening
now, but we’re not seeing the
level of activity we would nor-
mally expect from the Thanks-
giving period.

“It’s still sluggish and very
short-term. It’s still all very ten-
tative. It is still extremely soft at
this time, but I’m hopeful it will
pick up in the short-term. We
will have some better indica-

tions of what Thanksgiving will |

likely be at the end of this week,
but it’ll be less than last year.”
Mr Sands added that “under

normal circumstances” Baha ~

Mar would have had a “fairly
good indication” of how the
Thanksgiving period was look-
ing already, but the shortened
booking windows had made

even short-term hotel industry,
trends much harder to predict.

The Baha Mar executives
emphasised that Thanksgiving

bookings and occupancy pro-’

jections could well pick up over
the next few weeks, but at cur-
rent projections, occupancies
were around 55-60 percent for
the Sheraton and in the “60s-
70s” for the Wyndham.

Those levels were “off from

‘what we'd like it to be by at

least 25 per cent at the
moment”.

“There is quite.a lot of uncer-
tainty, and the strength of
Thanksgiving will give an indi-
cation of how resilient the US
travel market is,” Mr Sands
said.

Adding that Baha Mar hoped
to make no more lay-offs, he
added: “Hopefully, business will
improve going forward. We
have to do everything creative
to reduce losses and drive busi-

ness the way we can in a very —

fragile environment.”

Mr Sands said both Baha Mar
properties had been boosted
this week by Dr Myles
Munroe’s Bahamas Faith Min-
istries International conference,

with the Sheraton’s occupan-

cies in the high 80 per cent
range and the Wyndham in the
50-60 per cent range.’

Baha Mar’s current perfor-
mance, and those of other
major hotel properties, will
come as little surprise, with

-Prime Minister Hubert Ingra-

ham announcing last night that
tourism arrivals to the Bahamas

' were projected to fall‘by 6 per

cent for the 2008 full-year.
Stopover visitors are likely to

10-15m in losses

By NEIL HARTNELL

fall more than cruise passen-
gers.

“Tourism, the principal
engine of the Bahamian econo-
my, experienced an increase in
income up to August of this
year due to increases in room
rates in New Providence, but
hotel occupancy levels then fell
precipitously in September and
October and continue to do so,”
Mr Ingraham said last night.

“Since August, the major
hotels and resorts in New Prov-
idence and Paradise Island have
experienced the lowest occu-
pancy rates in many years while
weakening in Grand Bahama’s
hotel.sector was in-evidence
many months before.

“Advance hotel bookings
offer no sign that the situation
in our hotel sector will be
reversed in the coming months.

“Unemployment‘is now a
most serious concern. Many
workers in the tourism sector
face the prospect of layoffs or
unemployment for a consider-
able period, and at least until

- the global economy, especially

that of the US, is stabilized and
returns to forward movement.”

as a short-term response to the
crisis, as the administration
seeks to finance public, works
projects and create employment.
Tribune Business sources
have suggested that the Gov-
ernment is trying to raise a $200
million syndicated loan from the
commercial banks to finance
such projects, although that
could not be confirmed before
press time. Zhivargo Laing, min
ister of state for finance,

declined to comment, saying he
wanted the Prime Minister to
speak first.

Yet some of the key capital
works projects identified by Mr
Ingraham are having issues of
their own, the Lynden Pindling

prime example, with Citibank
and FirstCaribbean finding it

investor interest in the first $310

Obama must succeed for us all to prosper

LAST week,'I wrote about
what I described as America’s
“most significant referendum
on the state of race relations”.
Well, I guess that the referen-

dum passed with flying colours |

as Barack Obama is now presi-

dent-elect of the United States -

of America...an accomplish-
ment that I thought I would
never see in my lifetime, but an
event that I remained hopeful
my children could possibly wit-
ness.

I shared and felt
moment’ at about 11pm on

November 4, when CNN:

declared Barack Obama the vic-
tor. As the cameras ‘panned the
crowd’ in Grant Park in Chica-



‘the.

go, the most moving image that

remains with me is not that of ©

Oprah Winfrey leaning on some
person’s shoulder with her face
full of emotion. Nor is it the
image of the Rev Jesse Jackson
with tears streaming down both
cheeks...but rather it is that of a
young, unknown white girl of
about seven or eight years-old.
She sat on her father’s shoul-
der with an American flag in
one hand, her other fist tightly
clenched and jubilantly pump-
ing in the air, and the expression
on her face was one of utmost

achievement, , pride and passion.

Bigger picture
That brief image, which last-



ed all of a couple of seconds at
best, will be immortalised in my
memory because what we were
witnessing was more than a sim-
ple watershed moment in the
history of race relations. Oba-
ma’s victory was not just a

-‘mono-ethnic’ event, wherein

he succeeded only because all
the blacks voted for him. He
succeeded because whites, His-
panics, Native Americans,

Asians and other groupings also
- voted for him'm record num-
bers. Hence the reasons why
that image of the ‘unknown girl’
holds a special place in my
memory of that historic

moment.

I do believe the result of this
recent US presidential election

‘ represented a ‘passing of the
guard’ in how the majority
views race. While I am not
naive enough to believe that
racism is dead, I do believe that

. going forward it is becoming
more and more marginalised.
_One just needs to consider the
composition of the crowd in

Grant Park last Tuesday night.

friends. Among themselves they
do not see colour, but rather,

.they see friendship.

How was this possible?

Many persons are asking the
question: “How was his victory
possible?” After all, he was

unknown with an un-American.

name; most prominent and
influential blacks had thrown
their support behind Hillary
Clinton; he was ‘boxed-out’
from traditional Democrat Par-
ty big financial donors; he was a
newcomer to national politics;
and, finally, he was black.
Notwithstanding,seemingly
insurmountable odds, he suc-
ceeded. When all the “Monday
morning quarterbacking” is
done, I attribute Obama’s suc-
cess to two principle factors:

Renaissance candidate

Some persons described the
president-elect as a modern day
‘renaissance man’ - a term com-
monly used to describe a person

who is well-educated, or who

excels, in a wide variety of sub-
jects or fields.
Obama is a very articulate,

smart, handsome, hardworking -

and energetic candidate. He
also has charm, charisma and
presence. These qualities are
augmented by a willingness to
seek and thoroughly consider
advice.

Finally, I do betieve-the fact
that he is actually bi-racial pro-
vided some quiet comfort to

that slice of America that still |

has a difficulty seeing a ‘non-
Caucasian’ as an equal, never

‘ mind a presiderit.

Campaign team

One is plainly left in awe
when analysing his campaign
team. The job they did is simply
amazing. They revolutionised
the science of political cam-
paigning with their strategic

: planning; understanding of the -

major ‘hot button’ issues; their
ability to incorporatetechnol-

ogy and the Internet; their abil-

ity to understand and craft rel-
evant and clear messages; and
finally the discipline to stay ‘on



' message’ for two full years.

Obama’s campaign team
appeared to have been focused,
cohesive, well-organised and

disciplined.

The big question

The big question is whether
President Obama can bring a
similar degree of focus, cohe-
sion, organisation and discipline
to both the White House and
Congress. ;

America has numerous
‘major’ problems, such as a

financial system in-need of

urgent and costly repair; an
economy in recession; expen-
sive and widely unpopular wars
in Iraq and Afghanistan; bur-
geoning national debt levels;
unprecedented deficit financ-
ing; broken healthcare and edu-
cational systems; and, finally, a

‘dire need for investment in

basic infrastructure such as
roads and bridges:

On the international side,
there is the unfinished ‘war on
terrorism’; continuing instabili-

" ty in the Middle East; and grow-

ing Russian belligerency.

For the Bahamas to prosper,
we need the US to prosper, as
our economic fate is inextrica-
bly intertwined. Therefore,

_ there is more. riding on the suc-

cess of the incoming presidency
for the Bahamas than the casu-

_al observer would detect. _

‘oppression’ claims

PORT. from 1B »

nental Diversified Corporation
(IDC) (the immediate holding
company for the GBPA and
Port Group Ltd) and Seashells
Investments, the vehicle: that
holds the. Hayward family’s 50
per cent IDC stake.

He found that the St George
estate could not claim it had
been oppressed by how the
GBPA,and Port Group Ltd’s

affairs had been conducted

because they were not share-

“holders in the companies. As a

result, they could not bring the

oppression action under Sec- .

tion 280 of the Companies Act,
as they had tried to do.

“T find that even if the plain-
tiffs or the [St George] estate
and the others mentioned in....

the Originating Summons had -

been the victims of the oppres-
sive action complained of, they
would not be able to avail them-
selves of the remedy-under.Sec-
tion 280 because they are not
shareholders of the Port Com-
panies or otherwise within the
victim class as required by law,”

- Justice Adderley found.
. “Furthermore, insofar as the
first plaintiff [Lady Henrietta

St George] is a ditector of the
Port Companies; even if it had

been pleaded in the Originat-
“ing Summons that if affected

her interest in her capacity as
director, the oppressive act
complained of has been reme-
died by the Court Order dated
March 7, 2008, and the remain-
ing oppressive act.complained
of in 2006 was not acted on by

- the company.”

Justice Adderley hdied that it

was “plain and obvious that the

action under Séction 280 is mis-
conceived and bound to fail,
neither they [the St George
estate trustees] or the Estate
are shareholders of the Port
Companies or otherwise in the

' victim class as required by Sec-

tion 280”.

As a result, he struck seven
paragraphs from the estate’s
Originating Summons, one of
which prevented: Mr Babak
from acting as GBPA and Port
Group chair, and dismissed the
oppression proceedings. .

In his ruling, Justice Adderley
said that in the context of Sec-
tion 280 of the Companies Act,
victims of ‘ oppressive conduct’
in a company’s affairs were any

_shareholder, debenture holder,

creditor, director or officer.

The term ‘shareholder’
“refers to the registered share-
holder”, the ruling stated, with
the Bahamian Companies Act
having omitted “any provision
that a beneficial owner of shares
in a company is a shareholder”.
The-St George estate, though, is
not the registered shareholder.

Justice Adderley also rejected
the estate’s argument that IDC,
Seashells and Fiduciary. Man-
agement Services (FMS) were
affiliates of the GBPA and Port
Group, agreeing. with the
defence arguments that they
were unregistered foreign com-
panies and could not be treated
as affiliates. :

udge strikes out Port:

This defeated the estate’s

argument that it had been

‘ oppressed by IDC’s refusal to

amend its shareholder register
and list the executors - Lady
Henrietta, her brother, Lord
Euston, and attorney Chris Caf-
ferata - as shareholders.

THE TRIBUNE

a se
DHL to cut 9,500 jobs in US

m@ By HARRY R WEBER and
SAMANTHA BOMKAMP
AP Business Writers

ATLANTA (AP) — Delivery
company DHL, hit by heavy
losses and fierce competition, is
significantly reducing its air and
ground operations in the US and
cutting 9,500 American jobs,
leaving rivals like FedEx, UPS
and the US Postal Service to
fight over the customers it will
stop serving.

The decision announced Mon-
day could lead to higher ship-
ping prices and greatly scale back
a possible venture between UPS
and DHL, the fourth-largest
shipper of packages in the US.

Deutsche Post AG, the Ger-

man parent of DHL, said it will
no longer offer US domestic-only
air and ground services as of Jan-
uary 30, though it said interna-
tional shipping to and from the
US would continue:

DHL has tried to be a major
player in the US since it bought
Airborne Inc.'s ground delivery
network for $1.05 billion in 2003,
but it has lagged in the air and
ground markets combined, ana-
lysts said.

Now, as other shippers pick

up some of DHL's business in -

the US, it could cost customers
more but boost the bottom lines
of the shippers.

"The real upside might be two,
three or four years down the
road, when the economy is feel-
ing better and FedEx-and UPS
are able to raise prices, because
they won't have another com-
petitor nipping at their heels,"
said Avondale Partners analyst
Donald Broughton.

Monday's news follows
Deutsche Post's announcement
in May that it was working on a
. deal with UPS to ailow the

Atlanta-based company to carry

some of DHL's air packages.
The DHLU-UPS venture was
expected to last up to 10 years
and generate up to $1 billion in
annual revenue for UPS, the
world's largest shipping carrier.
UPS has said the contract with
DHL, which it has been work-
ing to complete, would mostly
involve the transport of DHL
packages between airports in
North America — not the pickup
or delivery of DHL packages to
- customers.
* UPS spokesman Norman
Black said his company would
.continue to work on an air-haul
vendor:contract with DHL, But,

he added, "Today's announce- -

ment by-DHL certainly could
affect the size and scope of that
contract. We'll go back into talks
and see what develops."

RESORT, from 1B

‘While foreign direct invest-
ment inflows for tourism-relat-
ed projects was up 16 per cent
for the year to September 2008,
Mr Ingraham added: “The
growth of major investment
inflows into resort and hotel
development, which we had
anticipated, is slowing down and
a significant portion may not
materialise for quite a while.”

He said: “We are significant-
_ ly increasing the marketing and
advertising of our destinations
in the television and print
media, and we are also aggres-
sively promoting our country
online.

“Much of this initiative is
directed to the US market as
the closest, friendly, English-
speaking destination which uses
the same currency and enjoys
US customs and immigration
pre-clearance facilities.” —

The Prime Minister added:
“The Bahamas has the consid-
erable advantage of proximity
to the US; we will exploit that
proximity advantage to the
fullest.

“These efforts are being sup-
plemented by aggressive initia-
tives to improve airlift from. the
US to the Bahamas at compet-
itive rates.

“Increased promotional tele-
vision and print marketing ini-
tiatives are also underway in the
UK and Canada. Public rela-
tions initiatives are being pur-
sued in key markets in Asia and
Latin America with a view to
positioning The Bahamas to
benefit as and when the econo-
my begins to improve in those
regions.

“But even the best pump in
the world is of little value if
there is no water in the well.
We must all await the return of
consumer confidence in the
global financial system and most
especially consumer confidence
in the US before we can get our
tourism sector back on track
completely.”

Black cited the part of the
Deutsche Post announcement
that said DHL plans to stop
offering air service between U.S.
cities.

"The only thing that's left is
moving international packages
once they get to the US border,"
Black said. "That's a dramati-
cally lower amount of volume
than what they were originally
talking to us about."

Currently, DHL's total air vol-

ume for shipments from points
between US and international
destinations and between points
within the US is about 1.2 million
shipments a day.

That figure will drop to about
100,000 shipments a day after the
changes go through, Deutsche
Post said. The air volume figures
do not include packages that do
not start or end in the US.

Avondale's Broughton said he
thought the value of the pro-
posed deal between DHL and
UPS had been dwindling even
before Monday's news.

"This just accelerates that
process," he said.

Edward Jones analyst Dan
Ortwerth said Deutsche Post's
decision changes the scope of a
potential DHL-UPS deal, but
doesn't necessarily kill it.

"I don't see any motivation for -

UPS to outright walk away,"
Ortwerth said. "UPS is in the
stronger position, and I'm sure at

the bargaining table they will:

protect their own interests plen-
ty well."

DHL's air and ground opera-
tions generated $3.4 billion in
revenue last year.

"This is a nice piece of the
market for UPS and FedEx to
play jump ball with," Broughton
said.

Customers have already shift-
ed some of their business to UPS
Inc. and Memphis, Tenn.-based
FedEx Corp.

Dell Inc., for example, has
shifted some of its packages to
FedEx, according to spokesman
Venancio Figueroa. But the com-
pany also delivers packages
through rival UPS and other ven-
dors.as well. Figueroa said Mon-
day's DHL announcement would
have a minimal effect on the
computer maker, since it has
contingency plans. ~

"Global shippers have told us
they are looking for unparalleled

global reach, and FedEx is the -
global leader in express trans-

portation," FedEx said in a state-

‘ment.

UPS expects it will be able to
pick up DHL customers in the
future, as it has in the past, Black
said. t _

DHL's current providers of air

service within the US, ABX and

ASTAR Air Cargo, have been
opposed to the DHL-UPS deal,
saying it would cost thousands
of jobs if it went through. Now,
given the extent of Deutsche
Post's announcement, many jobs

could be lost at the two compa- |

nies even if the DHL-UPS deal
isn't completed.

To satisfy federal rules pro-
hibiting more than a 25 per cent
stake in US airlines by foreign
owners, Airborne and DHL had

spun off Airborne's air opera-

tions as ABX Air.

ABX spokeswoman Beth
Huber said Monday's decision
by Deutsche Post will affect
ABX' work force and opera-
tions. Just how much of an
impact has yet to be determined,
she said. ABX has about 7 ,000
employees.

looking for relief,” Mr
D’ Aguilar said. “The Govern-
ment’s emphasis should be on
keeping people employed.
They’ve got to focus on the pri-
vate sector, especially small and
medium-sized businesses.

“T don’t see why, by reduc- «

ing interest rates by 1 per cent,
we can’t get them current and
cap the amount of loans that
banks can make. Give it a one-
year life.” . 2)
Meanwhile, the Central Bank

said total non-performing loans -

(those 90 days past due with
three payments or more missed)
had increased by 30.9 per cent

since the start of 2008, reach- .

ing $330 million as at end Sep-

tember 2008.
Over the same nine-month

period, total bank loans in

' arrears climbed by 17.4 per cent

to $622 million, with the ratio of
arrears to total loans increasing
to 10.4 per cent compared to
9.3 per cent as at December
2007, and 8.6 per cent for Sep-
tember. 2007.

Prime Minister Hubert Ingra-
ham last night said the deterio-
ration in the banking system’s
asset quality further exposed
the current “weakness” in this
nation’s economy.

He said: “Non-performing
loans, that is, loans on which
payments have not been made
for at least three months, have

Bahamas’ current fiscal position,
this move will relieve some of

the economic pressures and not .

lead to the creation of an unsus-
tainable debt burden: or down-
grades from the international
credit rating agencies. .

The 2008 year-over-year

increase in the national debt was
faster than the 4.7 per cent
growth seen in the 12 months
to October 31, 2007.

The Central Bank; mean-

while, yesterday delivered a fis-
cal warning of its own, revealing
that the fiscal deficit had

increased by 20.9 per cent to $28.

increased by nearly 40 per cent.

“Another revéaling indicator
is the ratio of loans in arrears to
total claims outstanding which

has risen to 10.4 per cent in

2008, compared with 8.6 per
cent in 2007 and 7.6% per cent
in 2006.”

The Central Bank said the
increase in the percentage of
mortgage loans in arrears had
been more marginal, growing
by only 0.1 per cent - from 10.4
per cent to 10.5 per cent - of the

total outstanding portfolio dur-

ing the first nine months of
2008.

Still, the regulator said the
percentage of mortgage loans
currently in arrears was above
September 2007’s 8.9 per cent

‘level. As for consumer loans,

the arrears percentage had
increased to 9.1 per cent in Sep-
tember 2008, compared to -8.3
per cent and 7.8 per cent,
respectively, for December and

. September 2007.

As a result, Bahamian com-
mercial banks had increased
loan loss provisions by 27.4 per
cent since end-December 2007.

The Central Bank acknowl-
edged that the Bahamas’ gross
domestic product (GDP)
growth for 2008 was “likely to
be, at best, very modest to flat,
following on a possible con-
traction in the second half of
the year”.

million during July and August
2008 - the first two months of
the 2008-2009 Budget year.

Total spending, driven by an 8
per cent increase in recurrent
expenditure, rose by 6.9 per cent
to $244.6 million during those
two months. This was despite
capital spending falling by 11.8
per cent. ;

Yet total revenues grew at a
slower rate during those two
months, rising only by 5.3 per
cent to $216.7 million. Revenues
from taxes increased by 6.3 per

cent, but non-tax revenues

dropped by 5.2 per cent. :

_. For:the 2007-2008 Budget .
‘year, Central Bank data showed
that the fiscal deficit for those 12 —

months had fallen by 35.31 per

-cent, dropping from, $183.5 mil-
‘lion to $118.7 million. This
-. Means the Government spent
"$118.7 million more than it earnt

- in that fiscal year. :
"For the 2007-2008 Budget
- year, government revenues and

grants increased by 5.64 per cent

year-on-year to $1.414 million,
compared to $1.338 million the
.-year before. Import duty rev-

enues increased by 2.77 per cent,
owing from $507.5 million to

- $521.6 million.

The word ‘contraction’ is
essentially banker ‘code-speak’
for recession, which is defined
as two consecutive quarters of
negative economic growth.
And, not surprisingly, the neg-
ative growth is likely to last
through 2009.

“ Anecdotal evidence since
September already signalled
attenuated weakness in the
domestic economy during the
fourth quarter, with the aver-
age work week in the hotel sec-
tor reduced below the seasonal
ebb normally expected during
this time of the year, and with
some properties having to
reduce their employment lev-
els,” the Central Bank reported.

“In other real sector activity,
sluggishness in construction out-
put is evident in the scaled back
works on several foreign invest-
ment projects, impacted by con-
stricted credit and capital flows
in the external sector.......

“These conditions and their
consequences will also adverse-
ly impact Government’s rev-
enue collections, and constrain
short-run efforts to reduce the
fiscal deficit. While the rebound
in the US dollar and subsidised
oil prices are expected to tem-
per the domestic inflation rate
during 2009, the Bahamas will
still be faced with the accumu-
lated impact of higher prices
already in the economy.”

ernment can do in the short-
term other than prime the capi-
tal works spending pump.

The speech-was more of.a
‘reality check’, giving Bahami-
ans a sobering assessment of the
current economic situation, and
emphasising the need to pull
together, be productive and pru-
dent when taking on new debt.

Critics, though, are likely to

-point to the fact that there was

little to generate confidence in
either consumers or businesses
at a time when it is badly need-
ed. Yet, in truth, ‘there is little
reason for many to be wildly
optimistic about existing eco-
nomic prospects. -
Notably absent from the
Prime Minister’s address, -
though, was any mention of the

Bahamas Telecommunications’ —

Company (BTC) privatisation
and any potential efforts to sell
other state assets, or plans to
develop renewable energy
sources for BEC. Both could be .
key initiatives tokeep the. econ- .

omy moving. —

The only new initiative —
announced by the Prime Min
ister last night was a proposal .
to re-allocate monies from the
National Insurance Board’s
(NIB) medical benefit branch,
where there is a surplus, to a
“temporary unemployment
assistance programme” that the
Board will administer.

This would not impact the
sustainability of future NIB pen-
sion payments, Mr Ingraham
said. Those able to access. the
unemployment benefits pro-
gramme will have to be unem-
ployed for “a specific period of
time”, and an NIB contributor
for a minimum number of years.

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
Sunday

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.

1. Pass. Opening bids of one in a
suit normally contain 12 to 21 high-
card points. So, whenever you open
the bidding with one of a suit, your
partner has no idea whether your
opening is of the weak, strong or
intermediate class.

Most of the time, you get to iden-
tify the strength of your hand at your
next turn to bid. In the present case,
that time is now. Since your opening
bid was clearly of the minimum
class, you can best indicate those val-
ues by passing one spade, implying
that you opened a minimum and that
you have no clear-cut action over
East’s bid.

2. Two hearts. Standing by itself,
this is also a minimum hand, but it
has risen appreciably in value
because of the A-Q-x in partner’s
suit. Such excellent trump support

should not. be suppressed even
though you have only 13 high-card
points.

3. Three clubs. This hand is in the
intermediate range (16 to 18 points)
and can best be described by jump-
ing to three clubs. Game is likely in
clubs, hearts or notrump, although
partner can pass with a minimum
(six or seven points). The final con-
tract depends on what he does next.

4. Two notrump. This hand is‘also
in the intermediate class, but the
available information — at least for
the time being — indicates that
notrump is probably your best spot.
The jump to two notrump shows 18
or 19 points, notrump distribution
and stoppers in both of the oppo-
nents” suits.

However, the final contract is still
an open issue. Partner may be able to
raise notrump, or may prefer a suit
contract. Wherever he leads you fol-
low, because your values are flexible
and can fit any type of hand he holds.

5. Three hearts. ‘Your four-card
trump support, singleton diamond
(worth three points) and potential
four or five club tricks all combine to
put your hand into the intermediate
class, so you jump to three hearts to
invite partner to go on to game. Part-
ner is allowed to pass with the
skimpiest of values, but will seldom
do so in actual practice. ie

THE TRIBUNE

In today's society men
are seen as beings of

strength and are some-

times inclined to show

no intimation of weak
ness. This fact is one of

the main reasons why

depression affects men
more negatively than it

atfects women. 5 5

TUESDAY, NOVEMBER 11, 2008, PAGE 95

m By JEFFARAHGIBSON "Traditional views of manhood
cause many Bahamian men to
withhold their problem

AT some point in our
lives, we have all experi-
enced depression, but for
Bahamian men - who are
typically taught to keep
up a brave front, to nev-
er cry and to never show
weakness - when depres-
sion strikes it can be
incredibly devastating,
and difficult to emerge
out of.

From a medical perspective,
depression comes in two forms,
either clinical depression or
non-clinical depression.

‘Clinical depression is a mental
illness that is characterized by
severe, chronic sadness, dimin-
ishing ability to enjoy interests,
loss of pleasure for things that
you once found fascinating, loss
of energy, difficulty concentrat-
ing, feeling hopeless, a change
of sleep patterns, changes in
appetite, feelings of helpless-
ness, feelings of guilt, and the
most serious, thoughts of sui-
cide, and harming oneself.

“Clinical depression is a con-

sistent feeling of chronic sad-.

ness that may last for more than
two weeks," Angela Ward, a
psychologist at the Renascence
Institute Int’l told Tribune
Health. "In this type of depres-
sion there is no direct source
that triggers the emotions asso-
ciated with it, for example a cur-
rent, unforeseen personal issue.
Clinical depression can also
sometimes be genetic."

Unlike clinical depression,
non-clinical depression needs a
source for the symptoms to be
experienced, and typically arises
from a temporary, unresolved

“circumstance, Ms Ward said.

Depression triggers can include
issues such as feelings of dissat-
isfaction with accomplishments,
stressing over personal issues,
and failure, which is a source of
shame for most men, she noted.

According to Ward, the inci-
‘dence of depression is on the
rise in Bahamian society, and
men are more negatively affect-
ed by the disease than women.

In today’s society men are
seen as beings of strength and

are sometimes inclined to show

no intimation of weakness. This
fact is one of the main reasons
why depression affects men
more negatively than it affects
women. “Men would do any-
thing but appear weak. When
men experience depression they
are unable to express what they
are feeling, they cannot find
words that describe how or what
they feel. Some men have talked
about being in a dark, empty

‘ place," Ms Ward said.

Men who are faced with
depression are unlikely to admit
to it, and they are also likely to
deny that anything is wrong
with them. Although they are
aware of their current emotion-
al status, most men do not want
people to know the condition
they are in mentally and emo-
tionally. :

And not only do men not
want other people to know what
is going on with them, but they
don’t want to face the issues
themselves. “Men often try to
distract themselves with activi-
ties, risky driving, substance
abuse, sexual stimulation, risky

behaviour while driving, irri-
tability and anger.”

The way some men behave
during depression can also lead to
domestic violence, Ms Ward noi-
ed further. These men are often
angry and sometimes take their
anger out on their families.

When trying to get a male rel-
ative or friend to open up, Ms
Ward said that it was important
to remember that men have a
tendency to keep things in
instead of talking about their
problems - which is part of the
reason why depression causes
serious emotional turmoil for
them.

“What you can do is address
the issue. Say to them,.'I notice
you have been acting a little a
strange and I want to know
what the problem is'. You must
make them aware that you are
aware of their changes in atti-
tude, emotions, and behaviour.”

When dealing with a person
that is depressed, you should
not tell them to cheer up, she
said. Depressed people need
permission to feel their feelings,
if they are feeling guilty give.
them the permission to feel
guilty. What they also don’t
need is your advice. It may seem

a little harsh, but they have the

answers - the only thing they
need is your support.



istemper



CANINE distemper is a
highly contagious disease of
dogs, wolves, coyotes, raccoons,
mink and ferrets.

It is caused by a virus that is
easily spread through the air
and by contaminated objects,
much like the cold virus spreads
in people. This virus is excreted
in the saliva, through respira-
tory secretions, urine and feces,
and transmitted through the air
(sneezing and coughing). It is
similar to the human measles
virus.

Though the disease occurs
more often in young dogs, those
of any age may contract dis-
temper. This is especially true

of animals under stress or those
that are relatively isolated from
other dogs. Signs range from
those of a mild respiratory
problem, such as runny eyes
and nose, to severe diarrhea,
vomiting and seizures. Many
recovered dogs are left with
uncontrollable muscle or limb
jerking and/or periodic convul-
sions.

Vaccination is the best means
ot preventing canine distemper.
All dogs should be vaccinated
yearly. Unfortunately, even the
highly effective commercial
vaccines are not 100 per cent
effective and sometimes vacci-
nated dogs become infected.

Important points
in treatment

1. Distemper is a serious dis-
ease that is often fatal. Cur-
rently we have no drugs to
destroy the virus. Treatment
is aimed at supporting general
health and preventing bacteri-
al infections, and in many cas-
es, hospital treatment is nec-
essary.

2. Stricken dogs are treated
with antibiotics to combat
infections that often result
from immunosuppression,
along with fluid therapy and
medications to control diar-

~

rhea and vomiting to counter-
act dehydration.

3. No one treatment.is spe-
cific or always etfective, and it
may take on going therapy for
up to six weeks to conquer the
disease.

4. Sick dogs must be quar-
antined away from healthy
dogs. Plus the virus can live
in a frozen state for many years
and still infect your dog. It is
relatively unstable in hot and
dry conditions and can be
killed by most disinfectants,
such as household bleach.

5. The decision to attempt
to save the dog is based on its
overall health. For some,
symptoms get better then
worsen before recovery. Other
dogs show no improvement
despite aggressive treatment.
Often after consulting your
veterinarian, owners make the
difficult decision to cuthanive
the sick dog.

UNDER the theme. “Take
the Lead”, the organizing
committee of the AIDS Foun-
dation is in final preparations
for their major fundraising
event, the annual Red Rib-
bon Ball. Scheduled to take
place on November 15 at the
Imperial Ballroom of the
Atlantis Resort, Paradise
Island, the ball is the most
anticipated event for the
country's fashion savvy.

Although the ball is a time
of glitz and glamour and danc-

ing until the wee hours of the’

morning, the purpose of the.
ball is to raise funds to fight
HIV/AIDS in the Bahamas
and its effects on society.

The AIDS Foundation has
made many achievements
over the years, realising some

$650,000 raised from past |

balls for the work of the foun-
dation and other national

AIDS programmes and ‘ini- ©

_ tiatives. As the fight contin-
ues however, so does the

magniine costs incurred from
such a community outreach

and it is only with the help of |

corporate partners that these
goals can become a reality.
Doctors Hospital continues
to share the vision of the
AIDS Foundation, that is to
provide education and aware-
ness, to assist in the preven-

_ tion, treatment and cure, and

to provide support for people
living with HIV/AIDS.

For a number.of years Doc-
tors Hospital has been a
patron of the AIDS Founda-
tion of the Bahamas. As the

hospital pledges its commit- -

ment to service within the

Bahamian community, a.

recent check presentation was
made to the AIDS Founda-
tion to assist in the continua-
tion of its excellent work for
the benefit of the entire
Bahamian community.

“By our donation to the

AIDS Foundation, we are

yank the lead' in regards to.

our commitment of service to
the Bahamian community.
Our donation will assist in
providing funding for educa-
tional programmes targeted
at HiV/AIDS prevention
and/or the elimination of prej-
udice and discrimination
against HIV/AIDS-affected
individuals, and for pro-
grammes that provide services
to people living with or at risk
for HIV/AIDS.

"In keeping with our mis-
sion and‘vision, we have to
make a difference by our own
actions. It is our pleasure to
support the AIDS Foundation
as they continue to make such
a lasting difference in the lives
of patients fighting the battle
against HIV/AIDS,” said
Doctors Hospital's VP Oper-
ations, Michele Rassin.

THE month of November is
known as Diabetes Awareness
Month. World Diabetes Day,
held on November 14, is a Unit-
ed Nations Day and a global
campaign aimed at raising
awareness and educating the
world about diabetes. The
theme for this year is “Diabetes
in Children and Adolescents"

under the slogan, "Unite for dia-

betes’.

Diabetes is growing at an
alarming rate in the Bahamas.
Approximately 10 per cent of
the Bahamian population
(30,000 plus persons) is living
with diabetes. This figure is
probably much higher as there
are many persons who are living
with diabetes and do not even
know it.

Diabetes is a silent'killer, as
often times persons do not
“feel” the symptoms of high
blood sugar until it is too far
gone or too late. Diabetes
wreaks havoc in the lives of
many Bahamians when not
properly managed, and can lead
to chronic high blood sugar lev-
‘els which are associated with
heart attacks, renal failure,
amputations and blindness.











What is diabetes?

Diabetes, otherwise known as
“sugar’
disease. When a person has dia-
betes, either the pancreas does
not produce the insulin it needs -
this is type 1 diabetes, or the
body cannot make effective use
of the insulin it produces - this is
type 2 diabetes.

Common symptoms of both
type 1 and 2 diabetes include:

_ excessive thirst, frequent urina-

tion, sudden weight loss, extreme
tiredness and blurred vision. Peo-
ple with type 2 diabetes tend to
have symptoms-that are less

_ apparent. Many may have no

symptoms and are only diag-
nosed. after several years with
diabetes.

According to the Internation-
al Diabetes Federation, 50 per
cent of people with type 2 dia-
betes are not aware that they

have the condition. This fact

emphasizes the importance of
screening for early diagnosis

for type 2 diabetes, ie persons

physically inactive lifestyle and

people with a family history of

Diabetes in children.
and adolescents

Children are not spared from
this life long debilitating disease

and its life-threatening compli-

cations. According to the Inter-
national Diabetes Federation,
70,000 children develop type 1
diabetes each year and 440,000
children worldwide under the
age of 14 now live with type 1
diabetes. Furthermore, type 2
diabetes, previously unheard of
in children, is rising rapidly. Dia-
betes in childhood shortens life
expectancy by an average of 10
to 20 years.

Diabetes has a unique impact



2008

on children and their families.
Children with diabetes must
monitor their blood sugar levels,
take medication, and balance the
effect of activity and food.
Imagine a child-or adolescent
having to do this in the school
setting as they try to dodge

‘stigmatization and discrimina-

tion. Imagine-a child in the

- school setting trying to find a

comfortable, clean environment
to prick their finger so that they
can check their blood sugar or
find a spot to take their insulin.
In short, diabetes can and. does
interfere with the normal devel-
opmental tasks of childhood and
adolescence, which include suc-
ceeding in school and transition-
ing to adulthood.

In addition to monitoring blood

sugar levels ‘and taking medica- .

tion, food also plays an important
role in the management of dia-
betes. For proper control of blood
sugars, when a child eats is as
important as what the child eats.
The amount of food also has to be
matched with the amount of

insulin the child is taking. But at.

the same time, children with dia-

betes need to eat the same nutri- °
" tious food that other family mem-

bers should be eating.

It is important to‘understand

however, that children and ado-
lescents with diabetes are not on

a “diet” and their-food calories
should not be restricted. Instead
of restricting calories and
depriving them of certain foods,

assure that the amount of food
’ they eat matches the amount of

insulintheytake.

There are four important
things to remember when it
comes to eating and taking your
insulin.

1. When: How often or how.

frequently food is consumed

2. How much: Always be
.aware of.the amount of food
‘you are eating so that the insulin

dose matches °

3. With what: What is in your
food? How is it prepared? What
are you eating it -with?

4, Is your insulin working: It is
important to have enough
insulin working in the body to
cover the food you eat.

Young Bahamian model Gabriel Moss

WHEN Trya ean s reality series, America's Next Top
Model (ANTM) hit the UPN airwaves in 2003, it became
an overnight sensation. Week after week, season after

ig eed ‘fairy godmother” to hundreds of fanatical
young women all clamoring to become the next superstar

of the modeling world.

For millions of teenage girls around
the world, including Bahamian
Gabriel Moss, winner of the Mod-
Eyez tame of the Bahamas’
competition, ANTM gave them an
opportunity to dream of what could
possibly be.

RYofes corel (crete g METS Coey mr Cole es
eling reality, Gabriel heads to Mon-
tenegro, located in southeastern Euro-

pean, as the latest addition to the Ford .

Models family and the Bahamas’ first
tepresentative in the legendary agen-
cy's Supermodel of the World inter-
national competition.

Just 12-years-old when ANTM first
debuted, Gabriel, who hails from
aces lived a Srrate away from
Banks' American base. But the show
gave her a reason to believe that she
could possibly be a fashion model -
something she had dreamed of since
the age of seven.

Week after week, season after sea-
son Gabriel lived the model life vic-
ariously through her idol's television
show. And she continued to hold on
to her heart's desire - hoping for a
chance of her own - until one day fate
popped up on her computer screen.

“T was surfing the Internet for infor-
mation on models and modeling, and
I stumbled across a link to Models242.
They were announcing that Ford
Models’ was in the Bahamas recruit-
ing new faces,” Gabriel told Tribune
Woman.

“I thought that I had stumbled onto

the opportunity of a lifetime and 1.

was so excited about it, so I told my
mom,” she said.

Having knowledge of modeling
“scams” that involve shady individu-
als trying to seduce young girls,
Gabriel's mother refused to allow her
to enter the contest. Unwilling to let
her dream go howéver,’she recruited
her godfather, attorney Desmond
Edwards, and dispatched him to con-
vince her mother. If this was a genuine
opportunity, she reasoned, she did
not want to miss out on the chance to

“The night that I got the call saying
I was finalists in the Supermodel of
the Bahamas [competition], I ran
around the yard barefoot, laughing. I
was laughing so much that my jaws
starting hurting,” the former Jack
Hayward student said.

“I was surprised because [ lived in
Freeport and didn't have the exact
pictures they were asking for to enter
the contest. I didn't think they would
pick me,” she said. “I really didn't
expect to hear anything back.”

Gabriel jokingly said she bragged to
her friends online, her mother's
friends, and “to anyone else who
would listen”.

Once she got the initial-call that
she had made it into the local finals,
Gabriel immediately moved to Nas-
sau. And even though she didn't need
to, she showed up at the meeting
being held for the Nassau finalists
because she did not want to miss out
on anything.

tions for Models242, remembers call-

the weekend after the meeting with
the Nassau finalists.

“T told her about the Nassau meet-
ing and said that we were looking into
bringing her up from Freeport to do
the group publicity shot, but not until
the weekend after the meeting with
the Nassau finalists,” he said.

He remembers checking his email

- before heading out for his meeting

with the Nassau finalists and finding
an email from Gabriel

asking what time she
needed to be there.

“T wasn't sure if l was
reading it right because I
thought that she was still
in Freeport. How could
she be asking me about
what time to show up for
this meeting,” Mr
Humes said.

Gabriel said she
showed up for the meet-
ing in early September
and never returned to

Freeport until after she

won the contest. On the
week leading to the con-
test's grand finale, she
and the nine others final-
ists moved into the Sher-
aton Cable Beach.
“Moving into the hotel
was like a sleep over. I

felt like I actually was on America's
Next Top Model,” she said. “Getting
up early for photo shoots, having to be
up early for hair and makeup, going to
dinner at Coconuts with the group in
the evenings. Sometimes we would sit in
our room and actually wonder if it was
tapped like how they do it on America's

Gabriel recalls that it was not until

she got on stage at the grand finale that —

she got scared and started to doubt her-

An 'y real sense of Ghunge

, begins with inspiration.

Michelle Miller

THE colourful journey of life
is sprinkled with many opportu-
nities in which any individual,
regardless of circumstance, can
arm themselves with a greater
purpose, a deeper passion to
bring about a new kind of change
- redesigning the landscape of
possibility not only for them-
selves o their country, but for
the entire world.

No doubt this is the dawning of
a brand new day where a bold
dream and a unified belief in
something greater can actually

| become a reality. It is this kind of

confirmation that reinforces my
belief that the glass of life is
always half full rather than half
empty and everything is possi-
ble. Often times, however, much

- of what most people envision as

possible is mostly distorted by
the lens through which they see
themselves - which shapes the

A

way in sihich they see the world.

I believe that every generation
has an inherent responsibility to
usher in a higher degree of
change that inspires the next gen-

eration to raise the bar. We owe .

it to ourselves to embrace this
new wave of possibility by plant-
ing seeds of inspiration into the
hearts and minds of the children
of today, giving them the courage
td aspire beyond any perceived
limitation.

It is indeed a defining moment
in our time when any boy or girl
can become so inspired by the
audacity of hope to rise above
the smallness of circumstances
and obtain the ultimate achieve-
ment. Such a monumental
moment challenges us to adopt a
new way of thinking and recog-
nize that ‘our deepest fear is not
that we are inadequate but that
we are powerful beyond all mea-
sures'. The power is within each
of us to make the impossible, pos-
sible.

But while the world seems

Oss Comte ere mostrar ecole

hungry for a new change, we in
this great Bahamas paradise must
ask ourselves - what change will
we inspire?

Many seem to define nation
building by the number of physi-
cal structures that are erected,
but the true essence of building a

nation is really about building the ~
people, one mind at a time, and
formulating systems and pro- -

grammes that seek not so much
to teach, but to inspire one com-
mon cause that drives the peo-
ple towards a deeper sense of

’ belief in themselves.

Many are so focused on finding
the way, they fail to realize that
they must first find the will - it is
the will that produces the way.
Without the passion to think and
dream big, the masses will con-
tinue to settle for small measures
of success.

We must ask ourselves what is
our collective objective as a peo-
ple, as a nation? What unified
dream, goal or aspiration are we
seeking to inspire?

to begin a journey of her own.

- Until we the people make the
commitment to clearly define,
understand and accept a com-
mon goal that motivates us
towards a personal sense of ser-
vice, our individual efforts, no
matter how great, will remain
fragmented.

Final thoughts...

Unlike animals, human beings
cannot survive off food alone, we
also need words. No, not empty,
loud shouting from the mountain
top, but sincere, reassuring words
of substance that inspire and
ignite our passion to conceive,
believe and achieve something
greater.

A great speaker said, " "you can-
not put a big dream into a small

-life". The first step to building a

new kind of change is to recog-
nize that any real sense of change
starts with the person in the mir-
ror, you must start with yourself.

Such a transition towards a
greater purpose requires much
consideration and introspection

FOLLOWING in the footsteps of great |
women in her life, designer Genie Nut-
tall would draw inspiration from her

made clothing for their families, when
she created her resort line, Jeannie
McQueeny, four years ago. A featured
designer at the islands of the World
Fashion Week, held last week at the
British Colonial. Hotel, Genie's fashions
reflect a sense of old world style, with —
luxurious fabrics used to create contem-

St Lucia.
"These two women really instilled in mé a great
sense of colour and fashion," Genie said, "and the .

Her initial move e into the Rania industry came after
nearly a decade of designing jewellery. For her, the
idea of incorporating jewellery into.clothing was fasci-
nating. "I wanted to create a more unique look than .
what was already out there, and I suppose there wasa _
hole in the market because so many people were miss-
ing this," she said.

Living i in the Bahamas her whole life, Genie wanted
to design clothing for people who both live in paradise, '

herself, but every time a friend, family member and
even stranger would ask where she got her beautiful,
flowing tops and elegant lace blouses, she felt a tug
towards the fashion industry, where she could create

contribute to every facet of a
child’s character and well being.
However they turn out, whether
good or bad, is a reflection of
the effort, time, and energy that
parents actually exert into blue
printing their child’s identity.
With a focus on building bet-
ter relationships between par-

_ ents and their children, the

Department of Social Services
hosted a parenting forum held
at CR Walker High School last
week. There, Bahamian parents

were told that providing for their '

children and ensuring that they

_live in a safe, secure environ-

ment is the basic requirement of
parenting.

of development - that is know-
ing how to deal with them as

_ they transition from the terri-_

into childhood‘and then onto

Linda Craigie Brown of Par-
enting Partners Caribbean, and
a forum presenter, said that par-
ents must learn to understand
their children as they mature.
“You need to know that’ your
children change as they grow.

They change their looks, they .

change their behaviour, and the
way they react to certain situa-
tions may be a bit different. But

parents must ensure that are

children to feel loved, and that.

allows them to express love to
their children. And this love,

Ms Craigie Brown said, does |
not necessarily have to be a
~ verbal statement, it can be

physical affection like hugging
or kissing, and it must be done
on a regular basis.

Between the ages of 2 and

. 4, parents may begin to notice

that their child is. developing

new habits. During these »

years, Mrs Craigie Brown
said, parents must express
love to their children, because
even at this tender age they
often sense whether they are
fully loved and accepted or
their parents are alienated
from them. A genuine expres-
sion of: love somehow
improves a child’s ability to
show love and affection
towards other people.

"If you see that your child is

"Whether yachting through the beautiful Bahamian
waters, or reclining in an elegant Swiss Chaiet, the
emphasis i is on luxurious fabrics with exquisite crafts:

resort to-another.

She uses a lot of animal prints, something she believes
will never‘go out of style. Zebra and leopard print
dresses are perfect for lounging around the house or
even going out on errands for the day. Bright turquois-

with rich colours of relaxation.

"The aim is to create clothes that are easy to wear, yet

The Jeannie McQueeny line also shows in fashion
