A MAN convicted of the high profile 1996 murder of Club
601 manager Joyanne Cartwright was gunned down late Tues-
day night, increasing the murder count for the year to five.

The case, which at one point identified lawyer Obafemi |

Attorney General’s Office.

Public Prosecutions Director Bernard Turner of the Attor- :

Newbold’s death, Cartwright’s murder case is essentially closed.

Mr ‘Turner explained that, after an appeal was lodged by |

‘Appeal overturned the conviction on the basis that the trial |
judge allowed evidence from the accused’s confession into the

ALLEGED TRAVOLTA EXTORTION PLOT



Don't publicly indict politicians
without evidence, say senior PLPs

Claim that corruption allegations should be proven before public office bar.

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

UNLESS allegations of corruption and scan-

dal against members of the Progressive Liberal
Party are proven, they should not be barred
from running for public office, two senior
PLPs said yesterday. -

Former culture minister Neville Wisdom

believes the current system of selecting can-
didates is effective in filtering: ‘out unacceptable
individuals.

He cautioned against public indictments of
politicians without evidence, as this could deter
would-be newcomers to the political fray.

"If you look at the history of the politics in
the Bahamas and look at corruption, there
have been incidences on both sides where peo-
ple have been accused, and sometimes vindi-
cated, from accusations of corruption.

“J don't think any PLP or any sensible think-
ing Bahamian condones acts of corruption but

_natural justice has to.prevail and you cannot.

indict someone or find them guilty before they
have a trial.
"We've got to be cautious in determining

.what is a scandal in terms of truth from spec-

ulation. Because if we don't do that, we're
going to find very‘soon that good people will
not offer themselves for politics because. any-
one could scandalises your name. and very
often there's no foundation of truth to these
_ scandals," he said.

Neville Wisdom V Alfred Gray



MP for the MICAL constituency v Alfred
Gray also weighed i in, saying: "In every'coun-
try whether you're a politician or otherwise,
there will be things said about you (but) the
proof is in the pudding. ‘When you ‘prove‘an’
allegation then it becomes reason for concern,
but people could accuse the prime minister
tomorrow of stealing money; should he resign
because somebody says he stole some mon-
ey? "

The two men were responding to statements
made by PLP hopeful Paul Moss, who argued
that scandal tainted party members should
not run for election in 2012, in’an effort to
help save the party's image.

Mr Wisdom and Mr Gray spoke. to The. Tri-
bune on Bank Lane yesterday, where they

were lending their support to embattled former °

senator Pleasant Bridgewater, who was
arraigned i in Magitnte s Court on ehataes, of

‘day.

abetment to extort and conspiracy to extort.
Last week's arrest of Ms Bridgewater, along
with the questioning of ‘West End and Bimini

_MP Obie Wilchcombe in connection with an
_alleged plot to extort celebrity J ohn Travolta,

rocked the PLP.
-Mr Wilchcombe. was released pending an

‘ongoing police investigation, but Bridgewa-

ter along with ambulance driver Tarino Light-

' bourne were arraigned on related charges this
. week. When considered in addition to the,

many controversies PLP Cabinet ministers
‘found themselves embroiled in during the par.

ty's 2002-2007 term, many wonder if the party:

* can rébound.

"The PLP is a very resilient party} we wil.
move from strength to strength and continue
to prepare for the next general election," saic
Mr Wisdom, who lost his Killarney seat ir
2007 to Health Minister Dr Hubert Minnis.

PLP MP for South Andros Picewell Forber

admitted the party is experiencing "challeng.

ing moments" but predicted a strong message
from the leader Perry Christie in the comin;
days. "Amidst all these challenges that we
are hearing today we are going to hold fas:
because the PLP has a rich history and ha:
done much in this society over the years. ;
"Therefore it is bigger than one or two indj-'
viduals or entities. So it is against this backdrop
that I’m hoping for the very best and I think
you are going to hear something very strong

- Union seeks lo GIISUIFE vulnerable lai Off workers get hack lo work

.M@ By DENISE MAYCOCK
Tribune Freeport Reporter

FREEPORT — The Bahamas
Hotel. Catering and Allied Work-
ers Union is seeking to make sure
that the most vulnerable workers
who were laid off from the Our
Lucaya Resort get back on. the
job..

Kevin Gardiner, a union rep-
resentative in Freeport, said that
the union is trying to help preg-
nant women and péople in the
same household who were among
the 181 persons laid off on Fri-

“We are finding out that there
are persons living in the same

house who were.affected.as,well =;

those who are pregnant,” he said.

“We are addressing these mat-



ters and some of the persons have
been taken back to.work, but we
are still trying to determine how
many persons are affected.”

Mr Gardiner said the union is
also addressing alleged discrep-
ancies in redundancy payments
made to some of the faid off
workers. He reported that 20 of
them are claiming they did not
receive adequate redundancy
packages, and some say they were
not awarded the.Christmas
bonuses they had accrued.

“We have assured those per-
sons that they receive their prop-
er payments this week,” he said.

- President Roy Colebrook could
not be.reached for comment up to

press time. Some’ union execu- ©

tives.in. Freeport have. criticised
Mr Colebrook for failing to warn

- workers about the impending lay-
‘offs before they took place.

Second vice president Lionél
Morley and trustee Ian Neely said

that they were never told about -

the move by: management.

Our Lucaya Resort has been
experiencing low occupancy for
some time. Management said it
did all it could to keep employees
on through Christmas by putting
workers on reduced hours and
work rotation: The Hutchison

» Whampoa Group of Hong Kong
- Owns the property, which includes

a Westin and.a Sheraton hotel.

‘Room rates have been reduced _

~ and séveral amenities at the resort

have been discontinued due to



low occupancy.

Veteran
immigration
officers asked
to retire, say
sources

FREEPORT - A few vet-
eran immigration officers on
Grand Bahama have been
asked to voluntarily retire, it
has been claimed.

According to sources,
Erro] Ferguson, Spence
Dorsett, Roosevelt Newbold
and another senior official
have asked to accept retire-
ment packages.

Fostina Major, assistant
director of immigration for
Freeport, could not be
reached for comment,up to
press time yesterday.

The government has
embarked on a major
restructuring of three of the
country’s law enforcement
agencies — the Royal
Bahamas Police Force and
the Customs and Immigra-
tion departments.

About 15 senior police
officers were asked to volun-
tarily retire this month.

Similar requests have been
made at Customs.

Cuba: closing
Gitmo prison
positive, but

insufficient

Cuban Foreign Minister
Felipe Perez on Wednesday
demanded that the U.S. return
the Guantanamo naval base to
Cuba, though he welcomed .
President Barack Obama’s
order to close the detention
center there, according to the
Associated Press.

‘We have always said that
Cuba expects to recover this
territory,” Perez Roque
of the basé near easternmost






the prison for: terrorism’ sus-
pects within a year is “posi-
tive,” but “insufficient,” the
foreign minister said at a news
cohference.

‘The U.S. naval base was
built on land permanently

leased from Cuba under terms *

imposed when American
troops occupied the island in
1903.

Peréz Roque gave details
about Cuba’s annual human
rights report to the United
Nations’ Human Rights Coun-
cil, which is to be submitted
on Feb. 5. A U.N. vote on the
report is expected in July.

Cuba uses the report to
‘defend its rights record, argu-
ing that its communist govern-
ment answers to the people
and saying its controls on,
unions, social groups and the
media work to strengthen
individual freedoms.

It says free health care, edu-
cation and other government -
subsidies ensure Cubans enjoy
more human rights than peo-
ple in most other nations.

Detractors maintain that
Cuba holds more than 200 -
political prisoners and fails to
respect rights such as freedom
of speech, assembly and the
press. The government dis-
misses those charges and
maintains the prisoners in
question are mercenaries who
were working with foreign
governments to undermine
the island’s political and eco-
nomic system. Perez Roque
also said that the U.N.’s tor-
ture investigator, Manfred

‘Nowak, will be invited to the
visit the island this year.

Although anti-communist
exiles regularly accuse the
communist government of tor-

. ture, Perez Roque said there
have been no cases of torture,
forcible disappearances or
extrajudicial killings on the
island since the triumph of the
Cuban revolution 50 years -
ago. Nowak, an Austrian law
professor, has been in touch
with Obama’s advisers and °
European governments to find
places for Guantanamo
inmates who cannot bé sent
home when the camp. closes.

President Raul Castro last
week also demanded that the
U.S. return the Guantanamo
territory to Cuba.

for sciaal protection bill

B By MEGAN REYNOLDS
Tribune Staff Reporter
mreynolds@tribunemedia.net

BIRDS crammed into cages,
horses in dirty, dilapidated sta-
bles and breeding dogs kept in
tiny spaces will be a thing of the
past under the Animal Protection
and Control Act.

But the Act drawn up by an ad
hoc committee:of animal experts
in 2005 is still in the draft stage
four years on, and animal rights

campaigners are calling on the .

public to end the unnecessary suf-

fering of animals that wilhvéntin=

ue without consequence until a
bill is pushed through parliament.
Executive director of the
Humane Society Stephen Turn-
quest said it is paramount that

‘the legislation be enacted. this

year to protect our feathered and
four-legged friends from the per-
ils of a booming animal trade.
Mr Turnquest said: “The most
important thing in the legislation
is for us to get proper guidelines
for the regulations for pet stores,
guard dog kennels and anyone
running a dog breeding business.
“Everybody seems to want to

be a dog breeder, because it’s a
way of making a couple of dol-
lars. Single mothers will have a
few dogs in the yard and breed

them indiscriminately, but if you ~

are going to be breeding dogs you
should have a particular area, a
kennel, set up for them.

“We don’t have guidelines, and
the new legislation would make
persons more responsible
whether they are a dog breeder, a
pet store owner or have a canine
security business, because some of

those dogs are kept in terrible

conditions.”

Inspectors fromthe Humane °

Society are unable to force animal

breeders to clean up their ani-.

mals’ living conditions without
the legislation to back them up, so
they rely on veterinarians to give
animal owners advice.

The-Act ‘would also heighten
the consequences of mistreating
animals, raising penalties from a
maximum $150 fine and three

months in prison to $5,000 or ©

$10,000 fines and longer jail
terms. Mr Turnquest is urging
animal lovers to lobby their MPs
and the prime minister to bring
the Act to parliament and stop

pet shops from keeping birds in
cramped cages, where distressed
parrots pluck out their feathers,
and horse drivers from keeping
their animals in squalid stables.

Mr Turnquest said: “The state
some of those horses have to go
through is horrible.

“The conditions are really, real-
ly shabby and the Humane Soci-
ety does its best to go around try-
ing to assist these people, telling
them this is what you need to put
in place, but you can’t because
there are no guidelines to enforce.

“And if they have any guide-
lines for farms, they are not
enforcing them because there are
farms where they put as many
pigs as they can all together — it’s
disgusting. But if there are laws
on the books saying this is what a
stable should look like; or what a
breeding kennel area should look
like, and this is what is required of
a pet store, then people would
have to put those in place or give
up their licence.”

Mr Turnquest said the public
could support the Animal Pro-
tection and Control Act by e-
mailing PM Hubert Ingraham at
hubertingraham@bahamas.gov.bs

Local meta criticised for focus on PLP ‘personalities’

m@ By PAUL G TURNQUEST
Tribune Staff Reporter
pturnquest@tribunemedia.net

ARAWAK Homes boss and PLP financier
Franklyn Wilson said he is amazed at how much
ink the local dailies are dedicating to “personali-
ties”. in the PLP — without any mention of: politicians

in the governing party.

“I mean it is just a constant thing, and not just in
the editorials — in the news. I know so much about
the other party that the Bahamian people are total-
ly ignorant to. And the Bahamian people are total-
ly ignorant to it because for whatever reason the
media here do not regard it as news,” Mr Wilson
said. He stressed that he is not trying to downplay
the political fall-out from the predicament former
PLP senator Pleasant Bridgewater finds herself in,
“but I just find it amazing that The Tribune in par-
ticular finds so niuch interest in making the Bahami-
an public so aware of what is wrong in the PLP and
somehow nothing can ever be found or adverse

comment about the FNM.”

The former PLP parliamentarian said that if you
go by the editorials of The Nassau Guardian and The
Tribune, it seems as if the government can never do

any wrong.

Wilson

While Mr Wilson said that there is
no question Ms Bridgewater did the
right thing by resigning her post in
the Senate, he can not comment on
her possible future in the party.

As for the consequences of the
extortion allegations brought by John
Travolta and his family, which Ms

Bridgewater has been charged in connection with, he

said: “I don’t see this as effecting the economic cli-
mate in the Bahamas. I think the minister of nation-
al security was correct and I commend him for his
statement, which in my mind I think was measured,
that this will not have an impact on the economic cir-
cumstance of the country. That is what I under-
stand the minister to have said and I accept that as
a measured and reasonable comment,” he said.
Mr Wilson said the main issue facing the Bahamas
today is not the fortunes of the PLP, but the fact that
the country is not progressing economically thanks
to the “terrible policies” of the FNM government.
“That is fact number one. Two; that trend has

been exacerbated through global,economic forces.

Faction in PLP ‘out of order’

WE WERE shocked by the headline in yes-_.
terday’s Tribune — “Faction in PLP wants May- ~
nard-Gibson out.”

Mrs Gibson will be called on to testify in a
case brought by actor John Travolta against
former senator Pleasant Bridgewater and a
paramedic. Mr Travolta accuses the duo of con-
spiracy to extort $25 million from him after the
tragic death of his teenage son.

Mrs Gibson is the Travolta family’s lawyer.
She is also Ms Bridgewater’s colleague in the
PLP and until Ms Bridgewater’s weekend res-
gnation, her fellow senator.

No one knows what testimony Mrs Gibson
will give in the case. As a fellow PLP Senator
said it could be no more than being called on to
affirm that she is the actor’s lawyer.

However, before kriowing the facts, it is
reported that an “influential faction” of the
PLP has taken exception to Senator Gibson
giving testimony in a case against a member of
her own party.

They are already actively seeking to appoint
a disciplinary committee. to sit in judgment on
Senator Gibson to force her out of the PLP.
And, obviously, to strip her of her position as
Opposition Leader in the Senate.

Is this a move to try to silence Mrs Gibson?
If so the police should be questioning whether
there is an underground movement afoot to try
to obstruct justice in this case, and tamper with
a witness.

Although Mrs Gibson might give evidence
that could help her political colleague, this
“influential” group of party members obvious-
ly assumes that her testimony will not be
favourable.

_ Let’s assume that it is not. Also let us assume
that not only is it not favourable, but what she
might say is true. Is she to be faced with having
to make a choice between telling the truth on
behalf of her client or lying to protect her par-
ty from a “grave injustice.”

If this is in fact the case is it any wonder
that Fox’s news show commentator Bill O’Reil-
ly can sneeringly warn his fellow Americans

_“to be careful” when dealing with Bahamian
officials? Or that CNN’s acid-tongued, Nancy

Grace can dredge up the Anna Nicole scandal.

and drag Bahamian officials through the mud?" >:

We can just imagine where this will go if
O’Reilly or Grace hears about it..In short order
the-world will know that certain persons in the
Bahamas testify and tell the truth at their peril.
It will eclipse the scandal with which we are
presently faced.

PLP Senator Hope Strachan commented yes- |
terday that “Mrs Maynard Gibson is going to .
have to weigh in in order for us to determine

what the truth of what is being reported (about ©

her involvement) is.” Mrs Strachan said the
party has to “rely on the experience of our
leader (Perry Christie) first of all and also of our
National General Council in relation to any
kind of conduct which the party may deem to be
contrary to the good reputation of the party.”

We believe that Mr Christie is the only mem-
ber of that party who has the experience and
maturity to grasp the serious implications of
the kind of reputation the PLP will have if it is
perceived that anyone in that party is interfer-
ing with a witness in a police matter.

As for Mrs Gibson, she not only has a duty to
her client, but she has a duty as an officer of the
court to help the court discover the truth. It
will be a tragedy if that truth hurts a colleague.
However, it would be an even greater travesty
of justice if the PLP is seen to be burying the
truth te protect the party machine. Should this
happen, then not only will the PLP have no
reputation, but it would be a terrible and unfair
smear on the Bahamian people.

Those who were outside the court yester-
day jeering at Ms Bridgewater should also be
ashamed of themselves.

They are destroying this country’s image of
judicial fairness.

They must remember that under our jail
system every person brought before the Bar of
Justice is presumed innocent until proven guilty.
Ms Bridgewater is to be given her day in court
to present her side of the story. She is to be
tried by 12 of her peers, not an unruly, irra-
tional mob.

We recall the case of a PLP MP who was
sent to prison for three months in 1989 for
attempting to bribe a magistrate so that she
would release two of his constituents, charged
with peddling drugs.

The accused MP told Chief Justice Telford °

Georges that he was.sorry, he had made a “slip.”
An annoyed Chief Justice pointed out that
that was what was enone with whole approach
to the case.
_ “You've sent a message to so maniy people as
to what happens here. You have reinforced the
views that are held in so many places about
this country” and its corruption.
-“That isn’t-a slip,” the Chief Justice thun-
dered. “Don’t think of it as a slip. And in the
time that you spend up there, you know, under-
go a conversion of values.”

Many of those “influential” members of the
PLP who want to put Mrs Gibson before a kan-
garoo court should be sent up to HM Prison,
Fox Hill, for three months to sort out theirown
value system..It might do them and this country
some good.



Bahamas being
tarnished by
extortion case

EDITOR, The Tribune.

After listening to CNN this
morning and watching the ticker
tape on Fox News, tears ran down
my cheeks.

It was truly hard to listen as
The Bahamas was being spoken
of in such a degrading way.

What makes it even worse is
that some of the people who are

_ being named.-are actually law

makers.

What kind of message do you
think this is sending out to the
rest of the world?

gives reason for investors not to
do business in The Bahamas.

Hotels are laying off; cutting
back on working hours for staff
and in some cases, one.or two are
closing their doors.

What were these persons think-
ing of when they, if they in fact

did, made the decision to try to .

extort? Did they not see further
than their eyes could see?

The Bahamas Government
must take immediate steps to

punish the wrong doers if they
are found guilty, and to reassure
investors and visitors to The
Bahamas that it does not toler-
ate nor stand behind such hideous
acts, and that this is not “busi-
ness as usual in The Bahamas.”

What makes this even more
difficult is the fact that it hap-.

“Congratulations” to the PLP. Even in oppo-

abroad for the wrong reasons. They say that a

forever linked with corruption.

What you may not know about road works

EDITOR, The Tribune.

IT’S is not always obvious
why roads and speed bumps are
not dealt with right away.

While I cannot speak for the
authorities on the subject, I’ve
learned a few things recently.

Did you know that speed
bumps are not “generally” put

on main roads or major thor-—

ough fares?

Did you ever consider that
wherever speed bumps are
installed it means the slowing
down of emergency vehicles to
and from the area?

Another thing to consider is
that a general consensus is
apparently preferred from all
the residents in the area before
embarking on installing speed
bumps. It may appear to be an
obvious necessity to one resi-
dent, but many others may be
extremely opposed.

It may be a good idea to get
the opinion of your neighbours,
and maybe even do.a vote or
get signatures for or against
speed ‘bumps before requesting
them.

As far as the paving of roads
are concerned, it is the job of
each Ministry, to insure that all

and then having another corpo-

Last, but not least, what may

when we may be right, but what
about when we live in more

FORMER Senator Pleasant
Bridgewater’s PLP colleagues in
the upper chamber yesterday said
that she is an experienced politi-
cian who will be missed in that
House, particularly as a voice for
Grand Bahama.

The senate met yesterday for the
first time without Ms Bridgewater
at around the same time as she was
being brought before the courts
to be arraigned on extortion
charges.

President of the Senate, Lynn
Holowesko, informed the senate
of Ms Bridgewater’s resignation —

which was tendered last Saturday:

after police brought charges against
her — and tabled Her letter of resig-
nation.

That letter, a short handwritten
note on an A4 sheet of loose-leaf
paper dated January 24, offered no
explanation for her decision
beyond that given in a statement
issued to the press on the same
date.

“Please accept this as my letter |

of resignation from the Senate with

‘immediate effect,” it said.

On Saturday, Ms Bridgewater
said she was quitting the upper
chamber to focus her attention on
fighting the legal battle ahead of
her.

Ms Bridgewater’s opposition
senate colleagues said that they

expect a new.senator to be appoint- '

ed to replace her by the next sitting

LOCAL NEWS

In brief PLP senators pay tribute to Bridgewater

of the upper chamber on Febru-
ary 12.

Senators Jerome Fitzgerald and
Hope Strachan said they foresee
another Grand Bahama resident,
who can give voice to that island’s
concerns, being chosen by opposi-
tion leader Perry Christie.

Mr Fitzgerald said that the party
is “somewhat saddened by the loss”
of Ms Bridgewater as a senator.

“Senator Bridgewater was a
valuable asset to the senate team in
opposition. Her views and concern

for Grand Bahama and the

Bahamas as a whole was always
welcomed when she made her con-
tribution, so from that standpoint I
think it’ll be a loss for us in the
Senate.

“We look forward, however, to
the appointment of a new senator
who we have no doubt will bring
the same level of enthusiasm and
concern for Grand Bahama and
forthe Bahamas,” he said.

Ms Strachan-said her prayers are.

with the former senator.

“T thank God that we still have a
democracy and that we have. a
country with a constitution where a
person is innocent until proven
guilty and I am trusting that the
judicial process will not only admin-
ister justice to her but that justice
would also be' seen to be done,

_because that is also important for

us as a country,” said the senator.
She too commended Ms Bridge-
water’s legacy as a senator, calling
her “perhaps the most experienced
senator in the chamber.” B

BTC confident of ‘comfortable cell-phone business share’

By LLOYD ALLEN
Tribune Staff Reporter
lallen@tribunemedia.net

BTC is confident that it will retain a “comfortable
share” of the cell-phone business after
the communications sector opens up to competition.

The privatisation of BTC is expected by. the end of
2009, and in order to take advantage of the fact that the
new owner will enjoy a monopoly on the industry for

at least a year, the company has already started an-

aggressive marketing campaign aimed at cell-phone

users.

Marlon Johnson, vice-president for marketing, sales

_ and business development, said: “All of us who are in
the company who recognise the fact that the market
will become more liberalised, have to prepare the
company for that process. That means that we have to
ensure that our service offerings are on par, that our
service quality is there, and that our prices and struc-
ture are suitable for a competitive environment.”

Mr Johnson said the company will continue to
enhance its services — but at the end of the day, the cus-
tomers will decide who they prefer when competition
enters the market. __

to make the best improvements, and if we pay attention
to customer care and provide attractive packages, I feel
confident that we will be able to hold our own and
maintain a comfortable share of the market,” he said.

One of the first new marketing initiatives by BTC
was launched in 2007, when the company reduced the
price of its SIM cards from $50 to $15.

Months later, during the summer of 2008, the com-
pany launched a campaign that offered an $8 credit on
any $20 GSM card purchase; $20 credit on a $50 card;

‘and $50 credit on a $100 card. .

- The company then initiated a nationwide GSM
upgrade project which focused on enhancing cellular
services, and also brought an end to the older TDMA
service.

With all of its cellular subscribers converted to the
GSM system, the company launched new initiatives
such as its “Internet on the go” service.

Since then, the company has eliminated service
charges on basic cellular options such as voicemail,
call waiting, caller-ID, and multiple party calling.

It has also signed an agreement with AT&T to per-
mit local cell-phone users access to the US telecom
giant’s network While travelling and convinced the

Public Utilities Commission to approve a request for

lower per minute cellular charges.

she always presented Grand
Bahama’s opinion as it relates to
various bills. She was always very
clear about her thoughts and the
direction she thought the country
should be going in, in terms of
Grand Bahama,” she said.

Mrs Holowesko said yesterday
was a “sad day for Pleasant Bridge-
water and for our country.”

She said she is unaware of a sit- :

CHRISTIAN COUNCIL
president Rev Patrick Paul has
declared that capital punishment
should be carried out.

He noted that the practice is
on the law books, but said due-
process should run its course
before anyone is executed.

“The government represents
ministers of God. The Bible says
there should be a degree of fear
to those who seek to do evil and
it is the government’s responsi-
bility to instill a healthy fear in
the country,” Rev Paul said.

- “If you are pressed by other
countries or international bodies

to remove existing laws [from]
the books, you must remember
that you were elected by the
Bahamian people. Bring the
issues to the Bahamian people —
let them make the decisions,”
he said.

Speaking at the annual church

‘service for parliamentarians,

Rev Paul added however that
he does not believe it is fair for
any case to “go on for an infinite

or extended period” before it is

heard by a court.

“It is the government’s
responsibility to fix the system.
Do all that is in your power to
fix it until every case [is] heard
in a timely manner,” he said.

Rev Paul went on to say that
the Bahamas requires “bi-par-
tisan governance and a united
church” to manage the moral,
social and economic problems
it is facing.

He urged senators and mem-
bers of parliament to work
together for the betterment of
the country. ; é

“We live in a beautiful coun-
try and together we -must work
to make it better in the
Bahamas, despite the economic
downturn in the Bahamian
economy,” he said.

“As the government,

”

said

Christian Council president
defends capital punishment

Rev Paul, “you must ensure that
justice and fair play [are] admin-
istrated and carried out in every
aspect of your governance. This

includes adherence to labour |

laws and other laws that are on
the books of this self same pur-
pose. You must assure the
Bahamian people and the world
that due-diligence and due-
processes are carried out.”

Rev Paul advised the parlia-
mentarians that they must
strengthen the judiciary and
“see to it that the crime that is
committed meets its just
reward.” .

Parliamentarians were told
that before laws are passed and
final decisions are made on
national issues such as the legal-
isation of gambling, they should
ask themselves the question: “is
this going to reinforce our core
values or does this undermine
our core values?. -

“Every action has conse-
quences and we will give an

_account first to the Bahamian

people and then to the Almighty
God. Righteousness still exalts a
nation and sin is still a reproach
to any people.

“Let us do the righteous thing
and uphold that which is right,”
he said.

THE TRIBUNE





Bahamian
rotarians

are asked to
continue polio
drive support

BAHAMIAN rotarians
have been asked to contin- |
ue supporting a historic
drive to help polio victims.

In a message from
Rotary International presi-
dent Dong Kurn Lee and
Rotary Foundation chair-
man Jonathan Majiyagbe,
members of local Rotary
clubs were told their‘con-
tinued participation in the

‘fight against polio is

“vital”.

The message followed
the honouring of Rotary
International by philan-
thropist Bill Gates Jr at
Rotary's International
Assembly in San Diego,
California, USA.

Speaking to 2009-10 dis-
trict governors-elect, Mr
Gates congratulated
Rotarians on the success of
the partnership between
Rotary International and
the Bill and Melinda Gates
Foundation to raise funds
for polio.

To date, Rotarians have
already committed more
than $60 million toward
the $100 million Gates
Foundation challenge
grant awarded in Novem-
ber 2007.

In recognition of
Rotary's impressive
fundraising success and
steadfast commitment to
polio eradication, Mr

> Gates announced that his

foundation has decided to
increase its challenge grant
by $255 million —for a
total of $355 million.

By accepting the
increase, Rotary also »
accepts the challenge to

: raise an additional $100

million in matching funds
by 30 June 2012 and raises
the combined Rotary-
Gates Foundation commit-.
ment to a total of $555 mil-
lion. :

All of the resulting $555
million will be spent in
support of immunisation
activities carried out by the
Global Polio Eradication
Initiative in polio-affected
countries.

The initiative is spear-
headed by Rotary, the
World Health Organisa-
tion, the U.S. Centers for
Disease Control and Pre-
vention, and UNICEF.

In another development,
the United Kingdom's .
Department for Interna-
tional Development
pledged £100 million ($150

5 million) and the German

government is giving an
additional $130 million to

. the global initiative.

These contributions are ~
separate and will not count
toward Rotary's match of
the Gates Foundation
challenge grant.

’ The infusion of funds is
crucial if the world is to
finally be rid of polio, a
crippling, sometimes fatal
disease that poses the
highest risk to children.
Although the initiative has
reduced the number of
polio cases by 99 per cent
over the past two decades,
the wild poliovirus still
persists in four countries —
Afghanistan, India, Nige-
ria, and Pakistan — and
imported cases from these
endemic countries threat-
en other developing
nations.

ger as Bridgewater
escorted from court

FROM page one

She was met with angry
chants of "Put her in ‘the bus!
Put her in the bus!" and "'Cuff
her! Cuff her! Send her to jail!"
as the mob passed police barri-
cades and followed her towards
Central police station.

The chants sparked a bitter
outcry from her supporters, one
of whom clutched a yellow
pom-pom, and screamed "Ain'
none of us been there! Y'all
wrong fa dat! This ain' no PLP
or FNM ting ‘cause at the end of
the day Perry (Christie) and
(Hubert) Ingraham is sit to the
same table".

Another woman supporter
screamed, "That's why they put
her in front of the judge and
until they say she guilty far as I
concerned she's not guilty."

One long-time PLP support-
er, senior citizen Ceaserinia
Hepburn was brought to tears
by the crowd's "unfair" reac-
tion to Bridgewater.

’ Police quelled the row before
it escalated by directing the mob
behind barricades and onto Par-
liament Street. During the
arraignment, as the throng of
onlookers waited in Bank Lane,
ardent PLP and FNMs argued
over the political significance of
the case.

"Ingraham bring the Tra-

voltas here? Ingraham caused ~

his son to die? Ingraham caused
everything, hey!" an FNM
shouted as he taunted two per-
sons wearing yellow PLP T-
shirts.

They countered with: "We
need to get our country togeth-
er. PLP or FNM, we all live
here."

A number of PLP members,

including PLP MP for Michal, V
Alfred Gray, former Culture
Minister Neville Wisdom, for-
mer MP Keod Smith and
Yamacraw MP Melanie Griffin
were at yesterday's arraignment
in a show‘of solidarity.

port to Bridgewater. He said
she has remained "calm and col-
lected" throughout the ordeal.

Mr Wisdom hopes Bridge-
water emerges unscathed and
if vindicated, able to resume her
political career: "All well think-

_ing Bahamians hope that this

thing is resolved and that Ms
Bridgewater, who is a lovely
person, is able to come out of

. this unscathed. I'm not a lawyer,

I don't know the particulars of
the case, but as a PLP and a
friend of Pleasant I'm here to
stand with her."

Mrs Griffin described her for-
mer colleague as a woman of

‘integrity and character who

gave "great service" to Marco
City, her former constituency.
Bridgewater was arraigned,

Man shot dead Convicted murderer

in the year’s
sixth murder

FROM page one

scene after the shots were fired and investigations are now
underway.

Acting Police Commissioner Reginald Ferguson said that
although police are intensively investigating this latest mur-
der, there is nothing out-of-the-ordinary about the shooting
that happened just hours after another murder.

“The business of crime, especially homicides is a prolifer-
al matter. Sometimes it’s up, sometimes it’s down, our
response is the same, to go after it and try to solve it.
“While I would like to see no crime and no homicides, two
homicides in one night is not anything unusual per se.”

Mr Ferguson explained that a growing trend in violent ©

incidents has been identified, where disputes over,a female,

‘revenge, drug related, or unresolved matters are spawned -

into a deadly attack.

He said what has proven helpful is where police have
partnered with communities in organizing crime watch
groups, or recreation activities that build stronger relation-
ships.

With the crime count already at a concerning level for
the year, police are urging people in the community to report
incidents of crime, and to become more involved in restor-
ing calm to the country.

have the matter stayed.

Detailing the involvement of
Mr Pindling in the case, Mr
Turner explained: “Mr Pindling
was called as a witness in that
matter by the defence and was
cross-examined. With the state-
ments he (Mr Newbold) had
made to the police; which was
not challenged in the last~trial,
made references to Mr Pin-
dling.”

He said that although New-
bold did claim Mr Pindling’s
involvement in Ms Cartwright’s
death, it was only a claim from
an accused which held no
grounds in court. -

According to Tribune files, Mr
Pindling at the time was also
involved in a multi-million dollar
US indictment related to money
laundering.

Business Week, a weekly US
publication, claimed in its March
24, 1997, edition that Mr Pin-
dling played “a pivotal role” in
the 1994/95 scam that left SC

and T International’s stock
worth just pennies.

The 45-page federal indict-
ment linked the alleged scam to
the shooting death of Ms
Cartwright, who was said to be a
nominee of one of the compa-
nies set up by the lawyer.

Ms Cartwright’s murder was
referred to in the indictment.

' The publication claimed she was

killed “months after authorizing

. the transfer of $1.7 million from

an account in the name of a
Bahamian IBC to an account in
Hong Kong, as part of an appar-
ent attempt to embezzle funds
from American Mafia mem-
bers.”

However Mr Pindling has
denied any wrong doing, citing

he had only operated upon

instructions of a client to open
an account.

A Supreme Court jury in the
court of Mr Justice Ricardo
Marques, found Newbold guilty,
and sentenced him to death for
the brutal killing of Joyanne
Cartwright.

Ashley “Seymour” Newbold,

42, was charged with “being
involved with another” in that
1996 murder.

In a statement to the police,
later denied in unsworn testi-
mony in the court, Newbold
implicated Obie Pindling in Ms
Cartwright’s murder.

Although Newbold denied
dictating and signing ‘a statement
to police detailing events leading

up to Ms Cartwright’s death in
an unsworn statement from the -

prisoner’s dock, the jury made
its decision on the statement.

Newbold was first arraigned
and charged on December 21,
2001, for Ms Cartwright’s mur-
der, after the case was first inves-
tigated in 1996.

According to police reports,
Ms Cartwright was killed at her

_Sea Beach Estate home in west-

ern New Providence on Decem-
ber 26, 1996.

The cause of death was listed”

as gunshot wounds to the chest,
the abdomen, right forearm and
neck. She received massive

. Injuries to major organs, includ-

Police alleged that Newbold,
being concerned with another,
murdered the club manager.

Newbold died early yesterday
morning at Princess Margaret '
Hospital after receiving several
gunshot wounds.

Police reports indicated the
shooting of Newbold took place

late Tuesday night in the area

of Toote Shop Corner.

' Shortly after 11pm, police
received a call from a resident
that a man “apparently wound-
ed” was lying in ‘the street.

Upon their arrival, police dis-

covered Newbold ‘lying on the

side of the street with several

wounds. 'He had been left for

dead.

Newbold was still conscious
and ‘was able to provide them
with his name, mother’s name,
and contacts.

Receiving medical assistatice
from EMS personnel at the
scene, he was taken to the hos-
pital, but was pronounced dead
within minutes of his arrival.

hail for
former PLP

senator

FROM page one

Ms Bridgewater, wearing’ a
white skirt suit, was escorted
into’ court shortly before 10
am amidst screams from sup-
porters and detractors on the
outside. Minutes later, police
brought her co-accused, 47-
year-old paramedic Tarino
Lightbourne of Grand
Bahama to court.
Bridgewater, 49, of
Bevans Town, Grand
Bahama is accused of con-
spiring with Lightbourne
between January 2 and 20
of this year to commit
extortion. Ms Bridgewater
is also charged with abet-
ment to extort. It is
alleged that she purposely
facilitated in the attempt
to extort $25 million from
Hollywood actor John
Travolta. Lightbourne
was arraigned again on
_ the charge of attempted
extortion. Ms Bridgewater
is represented by Nassau
lawyer Murrio Ducille
and Lightbourne is repre-
sented lawyer Carlson
Shurland of Grand
Bahama:
Neither accused was
required to plead to the
charges. Lightbourne had
initially pleaded not
guilty to the charges while
Ms Bridgewater, who
announced her resigna-
tion from the Senate over
the weekend, has declared
her innocence and vowed
to fight the charges. Both
accused opted yesterday
to have their case tried in
the Supreme Court before
a judge and jury. The-
prosecution: did/not object,

to Ms Bridgewater being :

extent of Mrs Maynard Gib-
son’s involvement thus far in
the extortion case against Ms
Bridgewater “then it will obvi-
ously have ramifications for
the party.”

On Tuesday sources within
the party proposed that Mrs
Maynard Gibson — who was

‘revealed last weekend as the
attorney for Hollywood actor
John Travolta — could be
removed from the party. under
Article 13 of its constitution
which outlines how a member
can be suspended or expelled
for committing a “grave injus-
tice” against it.

Mrs Maynard Gibson, also
leader of the Opposition. in
the senate, has been listed as a
witness for the prosecution in
Ms Bridgewater’s trial on
charges of abetment to extort «
and conspiracy to extort mil-
lions of dollars from the Tra-
volta family in relation to the
death df their son, 16 year-old
Jett, on January 2. She will not
be involved in the litigation
process itself, however.

Responding to Ms Maynard
Gibson’s detractors outside
the upper chamber yesterday,
Ms Strachan said that “Mrs

Mr Fitzgerald said he would

“Senator Gibson, of course,
is the leader of the Opposi-

“I’m sure at the end of the
day the facts will come to light
and we will all be able to.

assessment of what the situa;

get caught up in any rumours

said.

China's premier
sees eight percent
growth in ‘09

B DAVOS, Switzerland

‘CHINESE Premier Wen
Jiabao called Wednesday for
enhanced U.S.-China cooperation
to tackle the global financial crisis,
saying the meltdown has had a
“big impact” on his country but
would only slightly slow econom-
ic growth to 8 percent this year,
according to Associated Press.

_ Insharp contrast to the gloom
hanging over the annual gathering
of business leaders and politicians
at the annual World Economic
Forum, Wen was upbeat about
China’s prospects, saying he is
confident the country’s economy
will continue to grow fast, which
could help restore confidence in
global markets and stem the
financial crisis.

“We have the confidence, con-
ditions, and ability to maintain
steady and fast economic growth
and continue to contribute to
world economic growth,” he said
in his speech.

Wen conceded that “the cur-
rent crisis has inflicted a rather
big impact on China’s economy.”

“We are facing severe chal-
lenges, including notably shrinking
external demand, overcapacity in
some sectors, difficult conditions
for enterprises, rising unemploy-
ment in urban areas and greater
downward pressure on economic
growth,” he said.

While the Chinese economy
grew at 9 percent last year, it
slowed to 6.8 percent in the fourth
quarter, he said.

China announced a 4 trillion
yuan ($586 billion) plan in
November to boost domestic con-
sumption through higher spending
on construction and other pro-
jects, and Wen said he said seen
“small signs of recovery which
give me hope.”

senior boys bas-
ketball season
wares on, one of
the perennial pow-
erhouses in the league promises to
be one of the teams at the end of
the year positioned to make anoth-
er run at the championship title.

The C I Gibson Rattlers
advanced to a 7-3 record on the
2009 season with a 60-32 win over
the R M Bailey Pacers yesterday at
the D W Davis Gymnasium.

A lopsided 20-4 first quarter was
indicative of what. would come
over the course of the game as the
Rattlers cruised to the easy win. .

CI Gibson placed three players
in double figures led by versatile
post player Drew Rolle who fin-
ished with a game high 15 points.

Floor general Junior Denis fin-
ished with 10 points, his backcourt
mate Rashard Sturrup finished

with 14 while Rashad Ingraham

and Jermaine Hall chipped in with
seven and five points respective-
ly.

Rolle said his team knows they
have a coach with championship
pedigree in Kevin Johnson, and
they have full confidence in his
instructions night after night. “We
just went out there, listened to our

coach and what he wanted us to -

doing it,” he said. “We executed,
and played hard and we know
that’s what we have to continue to
do to do those things and to prove
to ourselves and other teams that
we are the best out there.”

Rolle said with his team in such

.a good flow on both the offensive

and defensive ends of the floor it
was easy for him to choose his
spots and fill the stat sheet.

“T just stayed around the rim
and tried to do better on the offen-

it was important that they com-

Serena crashes all-Russian semifinal

@ By DENNIS PASSA
AP Sports Writer

MELBOURNE, Australia
(AP) — Serena Williams
watched Svetlana Kuznetsova
stroll to the service line, getting
ready to serve for the match.

Failure to break would pre-
vent Williams, a three-time
Australian Open singles cham-

. pion, from having any chance
~ of picking up her coveted 10th
Grand Slam title.

So was Williams trying to fig-
ure out what Kuznetsova might
do with her first serve? Maybe
thinking about whether to stay

. back and slug it out or try to
pressure the Russian by rush-
ing the net?

Nope.

She was looking for motiva-
tion, and she found it by imag-
ining what it would be like to
make the long flight across the
Pacific to the United States as a
quarterfinal loser.

sible, with a lot of time to fume

LONDON (AP) — Aus-
tralian Open semifinalist Sere-
na Williams and her sister
Venus were hot part of the US
roster submitted Wednesday to

of the Fed Cup next month.

tain Mary Joe Fernandez select-
ed Fed Cup rookie Bethanie

prise, Ariz.

The United States, which last
won the Fed Cup in. 2000, will
take on Argentina's Gisela
Dulko, Betina Jozami, Soledad
Esperon and Aranza Salut.

. Dementieva was the only one
of three Russians who reached

champions. She will be joined

Dinara Safina and Vera

Kuznetsova and Zvonareva
teamed with Ekaterina Makaro-

China will counter with 2008

Also in the World Group,
France hosts Italy on outdoor
hard courts in Orleans, and the
Czech Republic hosts Spain on
indoor carpet in Brno.

French veteran Amelie Mau-~

Nathalie Dechy and Severine

Francesca Schiavone, Flavia

Roberta Vinci.

Marion Bartoli, who upset

over a missed opportunity.

"I was thinking, 'OK, if you
lose, you're going to fly coach
all the way back to Florida, how
uncomfortable that would be?'
" Williams said, laughing. "That
motivajed me to do a little bet-
ter.

"I wouldn't allow myself to
have the emergency row either.
I would be so mad, I would
have to sit like (in) the last row,
the tightest row. That way I

‘wouldn't do it again."

No worries. Williams broke
Kuznetsova's service, evened
the set at 5-5, broke a game lat-

er and went on to a‘5-7, 7-5, 6-1

win, ;

She can keep her business-
or first-class ticket for at least
another day — at least until she
plays Elena Dementieva in

. Thursday's semifinal.

Dementieva advanced to the
semis with a 6-2, 6-2 win over
Carla Suarez Navarro in the
other quarterfinal. The unseed-
ed Suarez Navarro beat Sere-
na's sister Venus in the second

top-ranked Jelena Jankovic at

-the Australian Open, was left

off France's team because the
17th-ranked player insists on
having her father, who coaches
her, present at Fed Cup training
sessions. The French team
requires its players to practice
under Fed Cup trainer Alexia
Dechaume-Balleret.

"I think things could change,

and I hope they do so favor-

ably," France captain Nicolas
Escude said.

_ Spain will be represented by
Australian Open quarterfinal-
ist Carla Suarez Navarro, Nuria
Llagostera Vives, Maria-Jose
Martinez Sanchez and Lourdes
Dominguez-Lino in the Czech
Republic against Iveta Beneso-
va, Petra Kvitova, Lucie Safaro-
va and Kveta Peschke.

In World Group II, Jankovic
and Ana Ivanovic will play for
Serbia on hard indoor courts
against Japan in Belgrade.

tion, it's Slovakia against Bel-

Navarro in the first match at
the main show court with the
roof open and the temperatures
just about as hot as when
Williams played. Dementieva,
the Beijing Olympic gold medal
winner, wondered why there
seemed to be a different set of
ground rules for the two match-
es.

"It looks like nobody really
knows how it works here,"
Dementieva said of the heat
policy. "I think when it's 40 (104
degrees) and over you have to
close the roof. But saying that in

“

~ our match, it was like 39 and a

half, well, I don't know. When
you're on the court it feels like
45..."

. Kuznetsova felt the same
way, particularly after she won
the first set with the roof open,
and lost the next two with it
closed.

"It's two different games, one
you play_inside; one you play
outside," Kuznetsova said. "She

Players should get equal opportunity
to make national softball teams —

WHILE’ best wishes are”

extended to Frankie “Cinder-
alla” Sweeting as he continues
to recuperate after surgery, we

offer our condolences to the -
family of the late Hugh “Meat-.

man” Bethell.

While both men would have
excelled on the baseball dia-
mond well ahead of my time in

journalism, I was able to once

again rely-on former sports
writer Godfrey “Goofy” Brown
for his recollection. .
Celebrating his 55th birthday
yesterday, Brown reminded me

that sports was going through °

another period of reflection as
another sporting icon, base-
ball/basketball extraordinaire
Vincent Ferguson was mourn-

ing the death of his beloved

mother.

And this Sunday, the sporting
community will also come
together again to pay their last
respects to the late boxer
turned historian Chris Malakius
as his funeral is set for 1pm at
St Agnes Anglican Church.

We all know that sickness
and death are two things that
are inevitable. We all must face
them one day or the other. So

once we have life, we need'to :

cherish each day as if it is our
last.

Tuesday, Bethell spent his
last day on-earth before he died
at Princess Margaret Hospital
around midnight. The 64-year-

_old was suffering from diabetes.

He left behind his wife, Marion,
and three daughters and three
sons, including bodybuilders
Aaron and Kenny Green.

and the Wood brothers, inclu-

Brad, Trevor and the late Jef-

‘Like I said, I didn't know. of

’ his baseball exploits, but Brown

noted that Bethell certainly
made his mark onthe field:
"People might say he had a
. temper, but that was the nature
of him whenever-he walked out
or trod out on the field," he
pointed out.

"While he might: have

appeared to some to be hot
tempered, anybody who got to
know him off the diamond, he
was another person.

He was quiet, humble and
easy going. I'm sure he helped

years."

SOFTBALL NATIONAL
TEAM

THIS week, the Bahamas
Softball Federation also
released the names of more.
than 50 men and 40 women.
who have. been invited to tryout

:. for the national teams heading

to a series of international tour-
naments during the summer. '
The list is made'up-of a good
mixture.of youth and experi-
enced players, which federation

. first vice president Burkett

Dorsétt indicated is the best
collaboration of athletes, rep-
resenting just about every affil-
iated island association as they
try to come up with the best
team possible 'to represent the’
country.

“The major step for the feder-
ation is to convince:all of the

players on the list that they

would have a fair chance of
making the team and that the
selection is not, just based on
those players who would have
had a little more-exposure than
some of the others. _

If it's truly going to be a
national team, then all of the
players, regardless of what
island they come from, should
be given an equal opportunity
to.make the team. One. of the
ways in'which the federation
can accomplish this is by ensur-.
ing that all of the players go
through the same type of selec-
tion process at the same time. .

It might sound a bit costly for
the federation, but if they are
going to live by. the true mean-

. ing‘of ‘national, then they will

have to find a way to.bring all
of. the :players. under. one
“umbrella for the. tryout selec-
-tion at.the same time...’ *

They. have selected sufficient
“coaches, whom, I assume will





‘ers or outfielders. I: think: it
would bé-a: ‘good sight to see all





together in .the same. ‘atmos-
phere.) 205° 88
There's: no- ieubt that
“Because-of thé Exposure they've
received, the players in New
‘- Providence will.once again fill
up the bulk of the spaces on
the team. But let us insist that
‘the Family Islands are put ina
position where they can chal-
lenge for any and all of the
spots available on:the team...
I think this should be the
trend that is passed down.to all
of the other federations when-
ever they are selecting their
national teams. Every player.
should.be given. an equal



: opportunity regardless of what

island in our archipelago they
come from.

BEIJING

China welcomed the arrival -

Monday of the Year of the Ox
with fireworks-filled celebra-
tions, but the country's eco-
nomic worries have already cast
the new year in amore sober
light, according to the Associat-
ed Press.

Millions of Chinese gave a
boisterous farewell to a tumul-
uous 2008 marked by a mas-
sive earthquake, the Olympics
and a global economic crisis.

But in a somber Lunar New
Year greeting, China's finance
minister warned that balancing
the budget this year would be
increasingly difficult, the offi-
cial Xinhua News Agency
reported.

Xie Xuren described exter-
nal and internal factors affecting
China’ s development as "very
severe" and said more difficul-
ties had to be overcome to
achieve steady and relatively

fast economic growth,-according .

to a statement posted on the
ministry's Web site.

He urged officials‘to’avoid
unnecessary spending this year,

with local governments ordered

to curtail car purchases, cater-
ing, meetings and overseas trav-
él.’ *

The Chinese New Year,
which marks the start of the
Spring Festival, is the country's
most important holiday. It is
generally celebrated with lav-
ish spending on elaborate meals
and exchanges of "hong bao,"
or red envelopes stuffed with
money.

‘ But at the capital's legendary
Quanjude Peking Duck Restau-
rant, marketing manager Yang
Jing said the financial downturn
is already having an effect on
traditional feasting. ,

"People are feeling it's hard-
er to make. money in the eco-

nomic crisis, so now the cus-
tomers are more picky about
details like food quality and
prices. It's not that easy to take
even one penny out of their
pockets," Yang said.

The country's economic out-
look for 2009 has been damp-
ened by the deepening global
financial crisis, with China's

2008 annual growth down to a

seven-year low of nine per cent.
Thousands of factories have
closed in China's export-driven
southeast, and estimates of job
losses exceed two million.”
Commiunist leaders have wor-
ried publicly about rising ten-
sions.and possible unrest as laid-
off workers stream back to their
hometowns. They have

‘ promised to create new jobs and

are pressing employers to avoid
more layoffs.

The State Council, China's
Cabinet, announced measures
Sunday to help college gradu-
ates find jobs, pledging to train
1 million unemployed gradu-
ates over the next three years to
boost their qualifications.

Despite the grim forecast for

the new year, merchants in the

capital said fireworks sales were
up 28 per cent from last year,
with some 230;000 fireworks

_packages sold by Sunday, Xin-

hua reported.

Meanwhile, a quirky chal-
lenge to state television's flashy
Lunar New Year gala was
dropped by Web sites and end-
ed up only being broadcast by a

satellite station-with limited cov- .

erage in China, the show's orga-
nizer said. Shi Mengqi had
designed his show — which was
to feature human beatbox rap-
pers and bicycle stunts — as a
grass-roots, laid-back alterna-
tive to its propaganda‘laden
competition.

Shi, a wedding planner who
produces his own online TV
shows, said he was in talks with
eight or nine Chinese Web sites
to broadcast his New Year show
on Sunday night, but all of them
backed out, claiming they were
warned not to carry the pro-
gram. He declined to identify
the Web sites and said he didn't
know who warned them.

‘andit was.a mix or romanticism.
with modernism,” the Ukrain-’

has a Spanish feel. It drew on all
the designer’s signature ele-

to polka-dot prints to heavy
brocade and matador costumes.

“Tt’s the flowers, the summer,

The AP in a backstage inter-
view. “I take those elements,

- which have been there since my

very first collection, and try to
update them.”

Tufts of crinoline and ornate
appliqués added a baroque
touch to short cocktail dresses
in a rainbow of saturated col-
ors.

Lacroix borrowed from the
wardrobe of Arles’ matadors,
adding toreador touches to
much of the collection. A red
sash punctuated a gorgeous ruf-

polka dots.

Even the bride, who was
swathed in layers of ivory tulle,
wore a matador’s jacket in baby

The show, held at Paris’ Pom-:

hues were given a S&M kick by

patent-leather straps that »

French actress Emmanuelle
Seigner said her favorite look
was a series of dresses made out
of elastic bands draped in ivory
lace:—“‘like ‘a*chic mummy

’ Asked whether she thought
the dresses, which left little to
the imagination, were wearable,
Seigner replied “but of course,”
with a saucy smile. j

through the bust and torso, flared -

out into kicky mermaid tails.

@ BELEM, Brazil

SOME 100,000 activists of all
stripes converged on this steamy
-Amazon city Tuesday, opening
the World Social Forum with a
rambunctious march to the beat
of samba drums.

An afternoon jungle down-
pour could not drown the spirits
of those who came from all cor-
ners of the globe to participate:

Socialists, environmentalists, -
anarchists, Indians, communists °

and even a fellow dressed as a
pirate, according to the Associ-
ated Press.
The massive meeting — com-
ing amid the worst global eco-
nomic crisis in decades — was
held:for the first time in the
Amazon region, an especially
poignant fact for attendees.

“During a financial crisis, the,

environment is the first thing to

be pushed off the agenda of |

most governments,” said
Andrew Riplinger, 22, of Chica-
go. “I think having the social

forum here in Belem, sur-'

rounded by the rain forest —

INTERNATIONAL NEWS



it’s keeping environmentalism
on the table.”

The streets of Belem were
overflowed — by both water
and the activists, who came
wearing. homemade shirts
extolling every social cause
under the sun. Massive banners

were unfurled, trumpets blared °
‘a chaotic chorus as Indians from

across the Amazon performed
traditional dances, barefoot,
bodies ornately painted and
heads adorned with the feathers
of exotic birds.

Local fire officials and media
estimated that 100,000 people
were in Belem for the ninth
World Social Forum and 50,000
took part in the march.

“T'm here to fight for land,
health and education,” said one
parading Indian, an older man
who gave his name only as
Miguel,

Atteidees see this year’s
forum as: more vital than ever,
with participants saying the
world’s economic crisis gave
legitimacy to their demands for
alternative development mod-

els. The celebration in the Ama-
zon was geographically halt a
world away — and ideological-
ly on another planet — from
the World Economic Forum in
Davos, Switzerland, where a
dour mood anda decidedly

slimmer list of global luminaries

was expected to prevail.

The social forum was first
held in 2001 in southern Brazil
as a direct response to that eco-
nomic meeting in Europe.

Standing on the deck of the

’ Greenpeace ship Arctic Sun-

rise, docked in Belem, the envi-
ronmental group’s top Amazon
campaigner Paulo Adario said
this year’s social forum was
being held in the perfect locale.

“The destruction of the Ama-
zon is being propelled by the
globalization of the Brazilian

economy — cattle and soy for

export,” he said.
“Socio-economic problems

and the environment aré ‘inter-'""

connected. That is why it is very
important to have the forum
here, so we can highlight both
issues.”

~ Canada’s government
announces stimulus package

mg OTTAWA

*

~ CANADA’S Conservative
government unveiled a $32 bil-
lion plan to stimulate the flag-
ging economy Tuesday, a move
that could stave off opposition
threats to force Prime Minister
Stephen Harper from office,
according to the Associated
Press.

Finance Minister Jim Flaher-
ty said the stimulus package
includes $9.8 million for infra-
structure over the next two
years. Flaherty is predicting a
deficit in Canada for the first
time in more than a decade.
~ New Liberal Party leader
Michael Ignatieff said he’ll
announce Wednesday whether
he’ll support the package. The
opposition Liberals had vowed
to use a parliamentary confi-
dence vote to topple Harper’s
minority government if the
stimulus plan fell short.

“There are some positive

signs to this budget,” Ignatieff
said, “There’s some things that
we are concerned about.
There’s a negative side.”

The credit crisis and the glob-
al sell-off of commodities have
started to hit Canada hard. The
country lost more than 100,000
jobs in the last two months of
2008, and the central bank is
predicting economic output will
contract 4.8 percent in the first
quarter.

Flaherty called the crisis “the
challenge of our time.”

“Canadians are feeling the
effects of the global recession,
and they are concerned,” he
said. .

The government is providing
money for bridges and high-
ways, high-speed Internet net-
works and home retrofits. The
government also lengthened the

The government has also said

the goals of the stimulus include
protecting the financial system
and ensuring access to credit. It
also promised help for the poor,
the aboriginal population and
struggling industries such as the
auto sector and forestry.

The opposition parties, which
hold a majority of seats in Par-
liament, united against Harper
late last year after he

- announced a plan to scrap gov-

ernment subsidies for political
parties, something the opposi-
tion groups rely on far more
than the Conservatives to. pay
for campaigns and staff salaries.

Although Harper withdrew
the proposal, the opposition
continued to seek his ouster,
arguing he had no economic
stimulus plan to protect Canada
from the global financial crisis.

Harper only avoided defeat
last month by shutting down
Parliament — an unprecedent-
ed tactic that allowed him to
retain power for now.

In brief

Facebook nixes
group seeking
Morales
liquidation’

HBOGOTA, Colombia

THE social-networking
site Facebook removed a
group on Tuesday whose
title advocated raising mon-
ey so a gunman could be
hired to “liquidate” Bolivi-
a’s leftist president, Evo
Morales, according to the
Associated Press.

The Spanish-language
group, created in August,
had 8,069 members and had
drawn the attention of at
least one outraged blogger
as of Tuesday, when The
Associated Press alerted
Facebook about it.

Called “Global collection

to hire a sharpshooter to liq- :

uidate Evo Morales,” the
group’s first description line
stated, “We need to get the
money to inspire someone
to do it.”

Its 20-year-old Bolivian
creator, Hony Pierola,
denied any malice. He told
the AP he started the group
“to laugh a little and would-
n’t be so stupid as to do it
with serious intentions.”

However, many of the
group’s 497 postings were
hateful, violating Face-
book’s terms of use, which
ban threatening violence or
expressing hatred..

One posting, dated Aug.
10, suggested Morales be
“tortured and made to suf- |
fer, like he’s doing indirectly
to many Bolivian people.”
The vast majority of group
members were well under
30, based on the birthdates
and photos they posted.

The first Indian president
of South America’s poorest .
country, Morales has been a
divisive figure as he drives a
socialist agenda. On Sun-
day, Bolivia’s voters
approved a new constitution
that. seeks to empower the
country’s long-suppressed

‘Tnidian majority.

A Facebook. spokes-
woman, Jaime Schopflin,
said Pierola’s group clearly
violated the company’s
terms of use,.and that the
site was removed within 90
minutes of AP’s call. She
said she did not know
whether anyone had previ-
ously alerted the 700-
employee company to its
existence.

Schopflin acknowledged
the challenge of enforcing
user terms amid skyrocket-
ing growth; Facebook’s
users have more than dou-
bled over the past year to
150 million, most outside
the United States. ©

- “We do have a multilin-
gual staff. We are trying to
scale right now,” she said by
telephone from the 5-year-
old company’s headquarters
in Palo Alto, California.
“These things, once they are
reported, we remove them
immediately.”

The accounts of repeat .
violators are disabled,
Schopflin added. Pierola’s
account remained active
“Tuesday. ‘

In an e-mail exchange,
Pierola was unapologetic
and made clear his deep dis-
taste for Morales, telling the :
AP that “in my honest opin-
ion as a human IJ think it’s
not his fault he’s such an
imbecile.”

“Lhope he doesn’t do stu-
pid things and that Bolivia
doesn’t turn into a commu-
nist state,” he said.

for the start of the first election of a patriarch since the fall of the officially atheist Soviet Union.

THE INTERIM leader of
the Russian Orthodox Church,
seen as a modernizer who could
seek a historic reconciliation
with the Vatican and more
autonomy from the state, was
overwhelmingly elected patri-
arch Tuesday, according to the
Associated Press.

Metropolitan Kirill received

508 of the 700 votes cast during
an all-day church congress in
Moscow’s ornate Christ the
Savior Cathedral, the head of
the commission responsible for
the election, Metropolitan
Isidor, said hours after the
secret ballot was over.

Kirill defeated a conservative
rival, Metropolitan Kliment,
who received 169 votes, Isidor
said. Another 23 ballots were
declared invalid,

It was the first vote for a
Russian Orthodox patriarch
since the fall of the officially

. atheist Soviet Union in 1991.

Kirill, 62, will be installed

Sunday as the successor to

Moscow Patriarch Alexy II,
who had headed Russia’s dom-
inant church since 1990. Alexy
II died Dec. 5, at age 79, after
leading the church in a power-
ful post-Soviet revival.

The son of a priest, Kirill has
headed the external relations
department of the world’s
largest Orthodox Christian
church for nearly 20 years,
making him point man for ties
with the Roman Catholic
Church. He met with Pope
Benedict XVI in December
2007.

Catholic missionary activity on
its traditional territory and dis-
putes over property and influ-
ence in Ukraine.

Kirill has echoed Alexy’s
warnings that those disagree-
ments remain obstacles to a
long-awaited meeting between
pope and patriarch — the unre-
alized dream of the late Pope
John Paul H. But he has also
promoted unity with the Roman
Catholic Church against the sec-

- ularism and immorality he says

threatens humanity.

The Vatican “rejoiced” over
Kirill’s election, said ‘its
spokesman, the Rev. Federico
Lombardi. He said Kirill was
esteemed in the Vatican and
expressed hope his service
would “continue to deepen our
path of reciprocal understand-

-ing and collaboration for the

good of humanity.”

In Russia, Kirill is seen as a
politically savvy figure who may
seek a more muscular role for
the church, which has served
the state for much of its 1,000-
year history. Church and state
are officially separate under the
post-Soviet constitution, but ties
have tightened again since
Vladimir Putin came to power
in 2000.

Kirill will face opposition
from a strong conservative
movement within the church
that sees him as too modern and
too eager for a rapprochement
with Catholics.

“He’s perfectly aware of the
risks he will be taking,” political
analyst Stanislav Belkovsky
said. Regarding ties with the
Vatican, Belkovsky said, “He
will go for it if he feels the
moment has come, but he won’t
fast-track it.” ce nind

Opening lead — queen of hearts.

Every declarer occasionally runs
into an unlucky distribution which,
as the cards lic, appears to make the
contract hopeless. But sometimes
what seems an-impossible task may
turn out tobe manageable afer all.

Take this case Where South got to
four spades and West led a heart.
Declarer won with dummy’s king
and cashed the trump ace, on which
East) unexpectedly showed out.
Undaunted, and for want of anything
better to do, South next led a low dia-
mond to his nine.

West won with the ten and shifted

to his singleton club, taken by
dummy’s ace. A second diamond lost
to East’s jack, and a heart was
returned. Declarer won with the ace,
ruffed a heart and ruffed a diamond.
He then cashed the Q-K of trumps,
producing this position with South
on lead needing two more tricks to
make the contract:

Superficially, it might scem that
declarer must lose a spade and a

~ club, but when South now led a club,

the second loser disappeared.

If West ruffed, that would be the
last trick his side could score. If West
discarded a heart instead, declarer
would win the club with the king and
ruff a diamond to produce his 10th
trick. And if West discarded the ace
of diamonds, declarer would take the
club king and lead the established
queen of diamonds, discarding his
remaining club and again finishing
with 10 tricks,

Whatever West did, South could
not be stopped from. scoring two
more tricks to make his contract.

US j ion history preserved on Angel Island

li By TERENCE CHEA
ANGEL ISLAND, STATE PARK,
CALIFORNIA

The Angel Island Immigration Sta-

tion, once known as the "Ellis Island of

the West," is reopening after a multi-
million-dollar restoration of the histor-
ical landmark aimed at showing visitors
a chapter of American history that many
would rather forget, according to the
Associated Press.

Hundreds of thousands of immigrants,
mostly from Asia, were detained on the
largest island in San Francisco Bay for
days,-weeks and sometimes months in
the three decades before World War II.

They were housed in crowded, dingy
barracks while undergoing humiliating
medical exams and grueling interroga-
tions administered by officials intent on
upholding federal laws restricting immi-
gration from China and elsewhere.

"Angel Island is a commentary on the
kind of racist thinking that really impact-

ed how people from Asia were treat-

ed," said Eddie Wong, executive direc-
tor of the Angel Island Immigration Sta-
tion Foundation. "To correct those



errors for other people, not just Asians,
it's important to know that history."
Nearly seven decades after it closed,
the station is set to reopen in mid-Feb-
ruary following completion of the first
phase of a $60 million restoration project

that was started in 2005. The initial work ‘

has focused on restoring the, barracks,
where many immigrants carved poems
into the wooden walls.

The station was built on Angel Island,
a short boat ride from San Francisco,
to help enforce the Chinese Exclusion
Act of 1882 and other laws aimed at

curbing immigration at a time when .

Americans were worried -about immi-
grants stealing jobs and depressing
wages.

From 1910-to 1940, about 1 million

immigrants from some 90 countries —

including an estimated 175,000 from
China — were processed at Angel
Island.

Some passed through fairly quickly,
but many Chinese immigrants were
detained for up to two years while inmi-
gration officials questioned their legal
status.

Don Lee was 11 years old when he

I>ft his rural village in China's Guang-
dong Province to join his father in
America in 1939. After three weeks
crossing the Pacific in the steerage deck
of a steamship, he was held for a month
on Angel Island.

"The whole place is really congested
and full of strangers, so I was more
scared than.anything else," Lee, 81, said
during a recent visit to the renovated
barracks.

The retired civil engineer remembers
long interrogation sessions in which
inspectors asked him detailed questions
about his family, home, village and
neighbors in China.

"They're not there to welcome you.
They're really. there to discourage you.
It's up to them to bounce you," said
Lee, who now lives in Concord, about 30
miles east of San Francisco.

The station was closed in 1940 after
fire destroyed the main administration
building. Then it was used to process
German and Japanese war prisoners
curing World War II, when the U.S.
repealed the Chinese Exclusion Act
because China and the U.S. had become
allies.

The island became a state park in
1954, and until the restoration project
began in 2005 about 200,000 people vis-
ited the station each year even though
they could only see a small section of the
barracks.

Now visitors can tour the entire two-
story facility, including several rooms
furnished with suitcases, clothes, books,
games and other items from the peri-
od. "We're trying to create as accurate
of an experience for the visitor so they

‘can.see what it was actually like to be

detained here," said Katherine Metraux,
a museum curator with the state Depatt-
ment of Parks and Recreation.

The abandoned barracks had been
scheduled to be torn down in 1970, when
a park ranger rediscovered the Chinese
poems — many covered by paint — that
conveyed-the sadness, anger and loneli-
ness of being held captive on the island.

One poem reads: "Imprisoned in the

wooden building day after day, My free-

dom is withheld; how can I bear to talk
about it?

"I look to see who is happy but they
only sit quietly, I am anxious and

‘depressed and cannot fall asleep."

More than 100 Saudis repatriated
from Guantanamo Bay naval base

@ By ANDREW O SELSKY
Associated Press Writer

SAN JUAN, Puerto Rico
(AP) — The re-emergence of
two former Guantanamo Bay
prisoners as al-Qaida terrorists
in the past week won't likely
change US policy on transfers
to Saudi Arabia, the Pentagon
said Monday.

More than 100 Saudis have ;
been repatriated from the U.S.
military's prison at Guan-
tanamo Bay, Cuba, to Saudi
Arabia, where the government .
‘puts them through a rehabilita-
tion programme designed to
encourage them to abandon
Islamic extremism and reinte-
grate into civilian life.

The oniiné boasts by two of
these men that they have joined
al-Qaida in Yemen underscore
that the Saudi system isn't fail
safe, the Pentagon said. A US ©
counterterrorism official in
Washington confirmed the men
had been Guantanamo
detainees. The official spoke on |
condition of anonymity because
he was not authorized to dis-
close that fact on the record.

Another two or three Saudis
who had been transferred from
Guantanamo cannot be locat-
ed by the Saudi government,
said Christopher Boucek, a
researcher at the Carnegie
Endowment for International
Peace.

Navy Cmdr. Jeffrey Gordon,
a Pentagon spokesman, said the
US sees the. Saudi programme
as admirable.

"The best you can do is work
with partner nations in the
international community to
ensure that they take the steps
to mitigate the threat, ex-
detainees pose," he said. "There
are never any absolute guaran-
tees. There's an inherent risk in
all detainee transfers and releas-
es from Guantanamo."

The deprogramming effort —
built on reason, enticements
and lengthy talks with psychia-
trists, Muslim clerics and soci-
ologists — is part of a concerted
Saudi government effort to

counter the ideology that nur- -

tured the 9/11 hijackers and that '
has lured hundreds of Saudis to
join the Iraq insurgency. Fifteen

the United States on Septem-
ber 11, 2001, were Saudis, as is
the mastermind of the attacks,
Osama bin Laden..

A total of 218 men, including
former Guantanamo detainees,
have gone through the reinte-
gration programme, according
to the Saudi Ministry of Interi-
or. Nine were later arrested
again, an "official source" at the
ministry said in a dispatch from
the official Saudi Press Agency.
The report said some of the
nine were former detainees, but
did not give a breakdown.

The Saudi Interior Ministry

official said most of the gradu-

ates "resumed their natural lives
and some of them voluntarily
contributed to the activities of
this programme to help others
return to natural life."

Frank Ciluffo, a researcher
on security issues at George
Washington University, said a
programme that doesn't work
all the time is better than none
because the alternative is an
extended prison sentence, which
only further radicalizes a per-
son.

"I think that just fuels and
gives legitimate grievances to.
the adversary which stick,"
Ciluffo said. He said Singapore,
Indonesia and Yemen have pro-
grammes too, but Yemen's was
suspended for lack of funds.

The two men who went

‘through the Saudi rehabilita-

tion programme and resurfaced
in Yemen were seen in video
clips posted on the Internet last ”
week.

One man gave his name as
Abu al-Hareth Muhammad al-
Oufi, whose prisoner number
when he was held by the US
was 333.

According to documents
released last year, the detainee
claimed he was twice beaten by
Americans, after he was cap-
tured in Pakistan in 2001 and
was being flown to Afghanistan,
and again’after he landed at the
Bagram detention center in
Afghanistan: ”

The other former detainee
said their detention by US
forces only hardened them.

"By Allah, imprisonment
only increased our persistence
in our principles for which we
went out, did jihad for, and
were imprisoned for," said Said
Ali al-Shihri, whose prisoner
number was 372.

The interior ministry official
said the two former: detainees
have made things more difficult
for Saudis who remain at Guan-
tanamo. Those who join
extremist causes after they are
released "reduce the chance of
the return of the rest of the
detainees whose families are
waiting for them and (are) look-
ing forward to their return
home," the official said, accord-
ing to the Saudi Press Agency.

About 22 Saudis are among
the 145 men still locked up at
Guantanamo, according to a
study by the Brookings Institu-

tion, a think tank in Washing-
ton. The largest group of
remaining prisoners is from
Yemen. :

More than 500 men have
been freed from Guantanamo.
Gordon said a total of 62 are
"confirmed or suspected" of
involvement in "terrorist activ-
ities." The Pentagon has not
identified these former
detainees, and has not said how
it defines terrorist activities, oth-
er than excluding actions like
engaging in propaganda.

"The names and identities of
these former detainees will not
be released at this time, due to
the need to protect our sources
and methods of gathering this
information," Gordon said.

Last year at this time 1 was diagnosed with Acute
Promyelocytic Leukemia. | have been through a journey
no child should go through. | always had great health and
was active in equestrian riding, soccer and dance until last

ear. | began to feel tired, sick, lost my appetite. My joints

egan to hurt. | had ongoing mouth infections from my
braces. My orthodontist office said | wasn’t brushing my
teeth properly, how wrong was he! My mom took me to the
doctor who thought my symptoms were from my mouth
infections. | then came back from a school field trip and

‘developed cellulites in my thigh from a bug bite. My mom

again took me to the doctor who agreed with my mom that
| needed a blood test as they thought | was getting too run

down. The results from that test changed my life. | had very

low hemoglobin, platelets and white blood cells counts;
everyone was so surprised | was even walking. | immediately

was hospitalized and received two units of blood. My parents °

were informed that | was receiving blood that was not
irradiated bit if | didn’t receive it | may die. My parents were
told | probably had aplastic anemia but they would need to
do a bone marrow check to conclude. At this point my
parents decided to move me to another hospital as soon
as | was stable enough to fly. .

Lucky for me | was able to go to Toronto, Canada to the
Hospital for Sick Children as | am Canadian/Bahamian. This
hospital is the most amazing place with the most amazing
doctors. My oncologist there is Dr. Sarah Alexander and
she saved my life. The night I landed | was diagnosed based
on my blood that | had APML which was later supported by
a bone marrow aspirate. Over the next six months there
were times | felt so weak | could hardly get out of bed; | was
sO nauseous and had so many mouth sores because | had
mucucitious from the chemo. | lost my hair. | had more
procedures and blood tests. | had lumbar punctures where
they inserted medicine into my spine to make sure the cancer
was not in my spinal fluid and sometimes had the worst
headaches afterwards! | asked God many times why me....!
missed my school, my friends, my horse, my dogs, why
me..... I just wanted to get better and come back to the
Bahamas. You know what...with my doctor’s help | did just
that. She got'me through my protocol and made sure | was
well enough to come back and begin school with all my
friends in September. The day | stepped on the plane to
come back home was one of the best days of my life. | will
ith sere all her efforts and everyone’s at Sick Kids
jospital.

Through it all | had the best support from all my family who
took good care of,me both in and out of the hospital. My
mom never left my side and my aunt (a retired pediatric
nurse) was with me along with the rest of my family in Canada
(my brother, father, uncle’s, aunts, my grandmother, ) always
visited me and called everyday when | was in the hospital.
My cousin even cut her hair from long to short when Piost
mine. My Dad flew back and forth from’ Nassau. My friends
in Nassau always kept in touch with me and | received so
many gifts!! | am very blessed to have such great family and
friends who supported me through a very, very dark time.

Cancer affects everyone in a family. My brother had to leave
school, his baseball and soccer teams and came up north

My name is Hailey Davis.
- [ama thirteen year old cancer
survivor and this is my story.








with me; my mom took six months off work. The community
here-was so great in supporting me and my family. Mrs.
Ranson from Nicole’s Butterfly Kisses called and sent me
presents. My mom's boss, Mr. & Mrs. Donald Tomlinson
and his sister Ms. Elodie Sandford, always called offering
to us their places in Toronto for my Dad and brother to stay

in and for me when | first left the hospital. Even Mr.
Tomlinson’s sons’ Geoff and Chris called, came to see me
and brought me gifts. My mom’s’co-workers, Mr. Adrian
Edgecombe and Mr. Jeremy Morris, covered for her at work
which made took a lot of stress off of my mom. Teachers
from my’school, St. Andrew's, always called and emailed
me. They have been so supportive since | came back. |

_ | feel so much better now!! | am back riding three times a

week and playing soccer twice a week for the school and
once on the weekend for my team the Insurance Management
Bears. My oncologist does not think my cancer will return
which | thank God everyday for healing me. | am so thankful
for being healthy and totally excited about life!! | am a better
person now for all that | have been through.

My leukemia is rare and sadly it was missed in my blood
twice here in Nassau. My parents made a quick decision
to fly me north but what would have happened if they were
unable to do that? 1 want to ensure all kids with cancer
have the same opportunity to receive good health care here
in the Bahamas like | received in Canada. That is everyone's
tight. No one should die, especially a child because they
are diagnosed incorrectly, cannot afford to receive the needed
medicine or the necessary equipment is not on the island.

Now that | am better | am actively involved with Nicole's
Butterfly Kisses as it is my turn to help. When | was ill Nicole’s
Butterfly Kisses along with my soccer league, the Insurance
Management Bears, organized a soccer tournament to help
raise funds to assist with my medical expenses. | will always
be so thankful to them. They demonstrated how a community
cae be. Helping/supporting when you are in that dark
place. ‘

Every year Nicole’s Butterfly Kisses raise funds to help kids
with cancer here in the Bahamas. This year we are combining
efforts with Dairy Queen. 50% of all blizzard sales sold on
Saturday, February 7th and 50% of all proceeds from the
coupons sold will be donated to Nicole's Butterfly Kisses.
You can also purchase Nicole’s Butterfly Kisses t-shirts to
wear on Feb.7th. This year a portion of the proceeds will go
to help a little girl from Harbour Island that just had a brain
tumor removed and the rest will go to assist in supporting
other kids suffering from this horrible disease and purchasing
needed equipment. | am asking all to please purchase a
coupon for a Blizzard or come in on Saturday, February 7th
and purchase one. | will be there seine Harbour Bay
on that day along with others who support this worthy cause.
As good citizens it is our duty to do our part to help others
in need; please support this worthy cause organized by -
Nicole's Butterfly Kisses and Dairy Queen. | feel my future
E ae now, help us make other children’s’ futures just as
right ;

Thank you in advance, Hailey.

Bahamas urged
to ‘reach out to
Obama team’ on
trade relations

* Attornay says nation does
‘not have luxury. of deferring’
Washington trade talks in
favour of Canada deal
_* Also calls on government to
~ ‘engage’ Obama on financial
services, and use line that
harming sector will weaken
Bahamas and compromise
US national interests

By NEIL HARTNELL
Tribune Business Editor

THE Government was yes-
terday urged to “reach out” to
the new Obama administration

- to safeguard the Bahamas’ long-
term trade relationship with the
US, a senior attorney saying this
nation could not “defer” such
a move in favour of trade talks
with Canada.

Brian Moree, senior partner
at McKinney, Bancroft &
Hughes, told Tribune Business
that the Bahamas also needed
to engage the new US govern-
ment as rapidly as possible over
its international financial ser-
vices centre, and protect it from
coming twnder renewed attack
via initiatives such as the Oba-
ma-sponsored Stop Tax Haven
Abuse Bill.

“We should be penchin out
to the Americans and our trad-

_ ing relationship with them,” Mr
Moree said..“The Government
‘js reaching out to the Canadi-
ans, but. I don’t think we have
the luxury of simply deferring
the Americans.”

The Government and the
Bahamas Trade Commission
are currently focused on prepar-
ing for trade negotiations with

Canada, over a replacement for -

the existing CARIBCAN agree-
ment that is set to expire in
2011.

The Bahamas is the fourth

largest CARICOM exporter to _

Canada, sending some $23.274
million worth of goods to that
country in 2006, some 94 per
cent or $21.908 million of which

entered ‘uty-free. Although still .

less then-what the Bahamas
exports to Europe, goods —
mainly crawfish again — that are
sent to Canada still represent a
sizeable export market for this
nation.
However, Mr Moree and oth-
‘ers have argued that the
Bahamas should concentrate on
' - and not appear to ignore - its
trading relationship with the
US, its largest and most impor-
tant trading partner. Around 90
per cent of the products con-
sumed annually in this nation
are made or sourced from the
US.
Mr Moree told Tribune Busi-
ness that the Bahamas had yet

He warned that while the
Bahamian commercial banking
system had been insulated from
the impact of the sub-prime
mortgage crisis, and the illiquid
asset crisis that had affected
global institutions, there was
“no room for complacency”.

This, Mr Bereza said, was due
to the fact that major Bahamian
industries, especially the. hotel
and tourism sectors, were now
experiencing the full force of
the global economic downturn.

“Signs of pressures for com-

s

mercial banks have appearedin .

per cent equity interest in
GBA. That has not changed. It
is no secret that we have

“In the process of doing

Mr Ward, though, was quick

_ to point out that a 100 per cent

Bahamas First takeover was
‘not a done deal’, and that
GBA would retain its inde-
pendence and continue writ-

“Nothing will change with
regard to how business is writ-

on a day-to-day basis,” he said.
On the management agree-

“There’s been agreement by
the shareholders on the initial
efforts taken so far. It’s already
happened, and the staff have
been advised accordingly.”

THE TRIBUNE



@ By NEIL HARTNELL
Tribune Business Editor

THE Road Traffic Depart-
ment’s decision to start the
licensing of company vehicle
fleets a month early - extend-
ing the period to two months - is
a “step in the right direction”,
but. the Chamber of Com-
merce’s president still believes
the process is “too convoluted
and complex”.

Dionisio D’Aguilar, who is
also Superwash’s president, told
Tribune Business that he “could
never get a reason that made
sense to:me why” the Road

- Traffic Department changed the
system for licensing company
vehicle fleets two years ago.

March is the month in which
company vehicle fleets are

‘inspected and registered, and
under the old system firms were
able to issue their drivers with
the necessary, cash, insurance
papers and other documenta-
tion to enable them to pay for
the inspection/licensing when
they drove the relevant vehicle
to the Road Traffic Depart-
ment. >

Now, though, the process

involves companies submitting

all the relevartt documents to:

‘the Road Traffic Department
in advance, then making an
appointment for an Inspector
to come out to their place of
business to inspect every vehi-
cle.

This, Mr D’ Aguilar said, cre-

ated extra bureaucracy for a

company, requiring it to under-
take a mammoth co-ordination
exercise to get all vehicles in
one place at one time. Time and
money was lost in having all
vehicles off the road, and addi-.
tional problems were caused if

one did not pass the inspection

or was in a repair shop being
serviced. —
The situation was raised in

the Chamber’s Vexing Business -

Issues report, and appears to
have caught the Road Traffic
Department’s eye, given the
move to start the company vehi-
cle inspection and licensing
process in February, thus
extending it for an extra month.

Mr D’ Aguilar said: “It’s a

step in the right direction; it’s .

an administrative step, but I
don’t see why they changed it
‘from the.way it was. It’s now,
convoluted and complex. Pre-

that looked like they would not
pass a proper inspection, and it
was felt fewer would slip
through the net if they were
inspected at the company’s
headquarters. Yet he argued
this change would not eliminate
such loopholes.

In its Vexing Business Issue
report, the Chamber said: “In
the past, a company would give
cash and the insurance certifi-
cate to each of its employees
who drove a company vehicle
and instruct them, during the
course of the month of March,
to go down to Road Traffic and

viously, it was very simple.
“It’s taken a very simple
process that worked very. well
and made it into this bureau-
cratic nightmare that takes time
to co-ordinate the vehicles, pho-

‘tocopy all the documents, send

them down to Road Traffic and

license and register the compa-
ny’s vehicle for the upcoming
year. Simple, straightforward
and easy.

“For some silly reason, that
policy was changed. Now, the

-business owner is required to

take the disk off all of his/her

vehicles and make a copy of the
disk. Then the businessowner
must attach the correct insur-
ance certificate to'the correct

was that there were too many

Company vehicle licensing still ‘bureaucratic nightmare’

March will leave all of your reg- -

istration documents stuck in an
overwhelmed bureaucracy at
Road Traffic, and your vehicles
will not be licensed by 31

March, meaning that the busi-

ness owner would either have
to take the vehicles off the road
or operate them with the gen-
uine fear of receiving a signifi-
cant fine for operating an unli-
censed vehicle.”
The Chamber added: “Clear-
ly, a simple process has been
overwhelming complicated for



no apparent reason. What used
to be a single process of giving
some cash and an insurance cer-
tificate to the driver of the com-
pany’s vehicle, is now a process
that requires many steps, many
phone calls to Road Traffic and
staff, much coordination and
massive amounts of time. This is

-an enormous nuisance.

“Return to the old system
and allow the employees of the
company to register the com-
pany’s vehicles at their own dis-
cretion.”

Such monitoring is likely to

Central Bank data released in
its monthly economic and finan-
cial update for November 2008
showed.a tontinued deteriora-
tion in the quality of assets
owned by Bahamian commer-
cial banks, with non-perform-
ing loans increasing by $49.9
million or 14.8 per cent during
that month to strike $387 mil-
lion.

Loans in arrears, meaning
they were between 31-90 days
past due, increased by $43.1 mil-
lion or 13.5 per cent to $361 mil-
lion. Total loans in arrears,
meaning those both non-per-
forming and in arréars,
increased by $93 million — a 14.2
per cent growth — to $749 mil-
lion, accounting for 12.25 per
cent of total outstanding loans.
That compared to 9.27 per cent
as at end-December 2007.

Total consumer loans in
arrears increased by 27.9 per

_ cent in November.

The percentage of loans in
arrears, standing at 11.71 per
cent, compared to just.8.32 per
cent at year-end 2007.

The Central Bank added:

gages encountering arrears also
rose by 12.3 per cent, increasing
the arrears rate to 11.98 per cent

from 10.74 per cent in October
and 10.44 per cent in Decem-
ber 2007.

“Although the value of com-
mercial loans in arrears fell mar-
ginally in November, owing toa
larger net repayment in the total
portfolio, the arrears rate still
advanced to 15.9 per cent from
15.73 per cent and remained sig-
nificantly above the, 9.26 per
cent at end-2007.

“Although banks continued
to increase their provisions for
bad loans, the faster pace of
arrears growth placed the ratio
of provisions to total arrears
lower at 21.87 per cent, from
24.41 per cent in October and
22.77 per cent at December.
2007.”

Mr Bereza, meanwhile: said
the Central Bank had restruc-
tured its Bank Supervision
Department to create a specific
Commercial Bank Unit, specif-
ically focused on oversight of
that category. The regulator
also plans to create ‘an Autho-
risations Unit during the 2009
first quarter "to increase effi-
ciency and allow the technical
staff to focus on the core super-
visory functions".

Although the Unit's functions
and responsibilities are still
being defined, a "core func-
tion" will be to approve new
licence applications. °

THE BAHAMAS Industrial
Engineers, Managerial and
Supervisory Union’s (BIEM-

. SU) negoitiations with Grand
Bahama Power Company are
being hindered by ‘ ‘meddling”
from the Minister of Labour,
the union alleged yesterday,

which said it was forced to file.

an injunction to stop the minis-
ter from conducting a poll next
month that could revoke its
position as the bargaining
agents for the power company’s
managerial employees.

The poll, which was to be
held on February 2, could have

resulted in the BIEMSU losing .

its. position as the recognised
bargaining agent for manageri-
al workers at Grand Bahama
Power Company, if a majority
of voters cast ballots against it.

The ‘ nnouncement of the
poll by Labour Minister Dion
Foulkes proved detrimental to
the union, as Grand Bahama
Power released a statement dis-
continuing its negotiations,
which read: “We are in receipt
of a letter dated January 9,
2009,.from Senator Dion A.
Foulkes, Minister of Labour
and Social Development, advis-,
ing that the Department of
Labour will conduct a poll on
Monday, February 2, 2009, to
determine whether BIEMSU
has the support of the majority
of the members of the bargain-
ing unit: In this regard,.all nego-
tiations with BIEMSU are here-
by suspended.”

The BIEMSU’s attorney,
Obie Ferguson, said Mr

TSEC] a aE
’ For the stories

. long ‘contractual



Foulkes’ actions amount to
“meddling” in the affairs of the
union, something he said was
unjustified and unwarranted.
“You can’t tell the people Pll
write you a letter on the 9th,
knowing quite well that you just
certified another union on Jan-

_ buary Sth, and knowing quite

well that the union and employ-
er agreed in writing that this
document would be completed
by the end of February, but you
chose to call a poll and disrupt
that,” said Mr Ferguson.

“The minister is meddling in
the affairs of the union and now
we have an injunction that will,
in effect, prevent him from con-
ducting an illegal poll and an

- unwarranted poll.” :

The BIEMSU president,
Pedro Edwards, said he felt Mr
Foulkes was over stepping his
boundaries.

“The minister has engaged in
dialogue and trying to mediate a
dispute
between Grand Bahama Power
and BIEMSU,” he said. “On
one hand claiming to be assist-
ing, but we are now finding out

that while he was assisting - so
to speak - there was another
grouping within the company
that has formed a union.

“He can’t have the company
and another group asking for
him to have a revocation poll
for a union that’s existing, when
the company claims that, in
good faith, it is negotiating with
this union.

“At the end of the exercise
there was no choice but to go
and seek an injunction from the
Supreme Court on this matter
,and fortunately we were able to
get this injunction that would
restrain the minister and his
Labour Department from hav-
ing any poll on February 2nd.”

The Grand Bahama Power
Company released a statement
yesterday saying only: “We

‘have not heard from the

Department of Labour and
Social Development on this
matter, but when we do we will
be guided by their instructions.”

Mr Ferguson said the imple-

mentation of the injunction .
‘Should jump-start negotiations

with the power company again,

Tax loopholes will
cause ‘honest firms
to fully shut down’

FROM page 1B

taxpayers of millions of dollars
per year, said the restructuring
did nothing to hold corrupt Cus-
toms officers and businesses
accountable.

He told Tribuine Business:
“It’s so disappointing to see the
Government doing what they’re
doing, because all they’re doing
is clearing the way for new,
fresh faces to come into Cus-
toms and potentially take
advantage of the loopholes that
already exist.

“They’re not holding anyone
accountable, Customs Officers
and businesses. There’s a host
of businesses that have been
making millions from this over
the years, but no one is reaching
out to find those responsible,
get that money back and take
action for what:has not been

. collected over the years.”

The businessman said that
while, “on the surface”, the Cus-
toms Department restructuring
appeared as if the Government
as trying to do the right thing,
he and others who had seen cus-
toms and tax evasion explode
over the years, “don’t see the

PUBLIC NOTICE

Effective February 3rd2009, The Bridge Authority will eliminate —
tokens as a part of our cash collection process. This change will
better assist all patrons utilizing the western bridge in accessing |
Paradise Island. To improve traffic flow, we are phasing out the

* coin machines and converting to a-coinless toll collection system.

All Transponder and Smartcard device customers will continue

to operate as usual.

To significantly reduce the waiting time and ensure a continuous
smooth flow of traffic, the following measures will be

implemented:

(1) Toll bperkees in Laives 1, 2 and 3 will have change for
small bills ONLY. You are required to have Exact Toll.

(2)
Only Lanes 1, 2, and 3.

(3)

Smartcard users will no longer have access to Lane 4;

All PLL. Residents and other transponder users are

encouraged to use the designated Lane 4 which remains

a cashless Lane.

Frequent patrons are encouraged to apply fora

During this transitional process, installation and testing will be
implemented Lane by Lane which may result in lane down-time.

operational during peak traffic hours (6am to 9am and 3pm to

6 pm).

Government as hate the

backbone to actually fix those
loopholes that exist and contin-
ue to exist”.

Adding that he knew of com-

panies that successfully evaded .

tax payments worth between

$3.5-$6 million per year, the |

businessman said: “It’s sending
the businesspeople involved in
this a clear message that the
Government is not concerned
in dealing with this and hold-
ing people accountable, so
they’re going to continue, in

their own, bold way, to do what,
‘ they’re doing. /

“Tf they’re not willing to deal
with the loopholes, for me that’s
the biggest thing, being able to
shut those down. Even if they
don’t prosecute, it will give me a
fair and level playing field, and
I can compete legitimately
against guys who have been
undercutting me for years.

“That’s the biggest thing for
me - close the flipping loop-
holes. The real essence is to shut
those loopholes a quickly and
effectively as possible - to choke
off the easy access to US cur-
rency.”

The businessman told Tri-

bune Business that the eco-




nomic environment he was fac-
ing was “deteriorating quickly”,

with sales dropping due to the
“fear factor” surrounding jobs
and incomes that was making
Bahamian consumers “pull

back” on spending. Discounts °

were now the order of the day
to.keep customers coming into
stores and holding sales at
acceptable levels, meaning

retailers were having to sacri-

fice margins.

“If we don’t deal with this
soon, you’re going to see legiti-
mate, honest, tax-paying busi-
nesses close down because they
can’t survive. A friend of mine,
who had multiple businesses,
had to shut down, and I guar-
antee that was largely due to
the ability of competitors to
evade taxes,” the businessman
said.

Zhivargo Laing, Minister of
State for Finance and the Public
Service, said this week that 24
people, all “senior” Customs

' Officers who had been in the.
’ civil service for more than 30

years, were offered retirement
packages last week.

He added that while corrup-°

tion was not the main consid-

eration in the decision to insti-

gate significant restructuring at
the Customs Department, the
Government does expect that
last week’s exercise will reduce
its occurrence.

Mr Laing said. the move was
“part and. parcel” of the Gov-
ernment’s expressed intent to

_ bring. about public sector

reform, so that key depart-
ments’ “delivery of service to
the public is of the order that
the public expects and
deserves.”

Confirming that the “overall
objective” of the exercise was
“to bring about effectiveness
and efficiencies in the organi-
sation”, Mr Laing said address-
ing corruption “would not have
been the dominant theme in
respect to this exercise”.

However, he added: “It’s our
hope to the extent that you
have improvements in the lead-
ership and management at
those levels in Customs, you are
able to encourage greater com-
pliance with good work ethics
and also to ensure that people
are doing those things that are
consistent with the law, so that
is part of the expectation that
we have as we continue this re-
organising.”

Bahamas urged
to ‘reach out to
Obama team’ on
trade relations

FROM page 1B

to respond to the helping hand
offered by Charles Rangel,
chair of the US House’s Ways
and Means Committee, who
had repeatedly asked this nation
and other CARICOM states
what their main interests were
with regard to a trade agree-
ment with Washington.

“I don’t think we can defer
such an important issue,” Mr
Moree said of the Bahamas’
trading relationship with the
US, “and while the Govern-
ment and Trade Commission

. are turning their attention to
Canada, we need to engage the
Americans now in discussions
on trading relations going for-
ward.”

The senior attorney also
called on the Government to

talk to the Obama-’administra- ~

. tion about the potential grave
consequences for the US, as
well as the Bahamas, should US
and other international initia-
tives negatively damage the
Bahamian financial services
industry and, by extension, this
nation’s wider economy.

“We need to engage the Oba-

ma administration through the

appropriate channels to make

the case that it’s very much in ©

US national interests to have a
prosperous and healthy democ-
‘racy just off the coast of Flori-
da,” Mr Moree said.

“The ability of the Bahamas
to continue as a vibrant and rel-
atively well-off democracy has a
lot to do with the maintenance
of a healthy financial services
industry. It’s not in the inter-

ests of the US to compromise -

that industry.”
Apart from the Stop Tax
‘ Haven Abuse Bill and other

likely initiatives,.international .
tax experts have argued that Mr_

Obama’s mere ascension to
office would be enough to give
encouragement to the OECD
and its fellow agencies to ratch-
et up the pressure on interna-
tional financial centres.

His presence in office would,
they claim, give a ‘green light’
and ‘nod and a wink’ to the

OECD, backed by high-tax.

European Union (EU) nations,
to re-start its ‘harmful tax prac-
tices’ initiative and those of oth-
er agencies.

Mr Moree said the Bahamas
needed to “prepare ourselves”
over its relationship with the
OECD, Financial Action Task
Force (FATE) and other agen-

cies.

“Everybody in the [financial |

services] industry expects for
the IMF and related agencies
to step up the pressure on inter-
national financial centres going
forward,” Mr Moree said.
'“We need to acknowledge
that, maintain the best and

brightest minds in the country |

today to deal with these inter-
national agencies, understand
their needs and requirements,
what our national interests are,
and identify what trade-offs we
wish to accommodate in our
dealings with these agencies,
rather than end up reacting to
the one or more initiatives these
agencies may take in the coming
months.”

Obama presses for

stimulus ap proval

@ By LIZ SIDOTI
Associated Press Writer

WASHINGTON (AP) —
Looking beyond expected
House approval of his $825 bil-
lion economic stimulus plan,
President Barack Obama said
Wednesday the nation is at a
“perilous moment” requiring
swift and decisive action.

“We don’t have a moment to
spare,” Obama said in the East
Room of the White House, just
hours before a crucial House

‘roll call vote. The measure

intended to steady the rico-
cheting economy was expected
to pass, but likely with little of
the bipartisan support that Oba-
ma wanted. The issue then goes
to the Senate where the new
president hopes to draw more
GOP backing.

Obama tempered the sense
of urgency in his voice with his
observation that he and corpo-
rate leaders “left our meeting
confident that we can still turn
our economy around.”

His brief remarks were
designed to put his stamp on
the debate while the action was
taking place at the other end of
Pennsylvania Avenue.

During his.talk and in the ear-
lier Roosevelt Room Session
with business CEOs, Obama
said the people running the
companies that are the engine
of the American economy are
behind him. Asked at one point
if he was confident of getting
Republican support, he replied
only: “I’m confident we’re going
to get it passed.”

Obama has spent his first
days in office trying to drum up

bipartisan support for his~

expensive and expansive plan
to help pull the country ‘out of
the year-old recession. It’s the
first major test of Obama’s pres-
idency; how he handles the
volatile situation, and the effect
of his stimulus package on the
economy, could well set the
tone for his presidency.

The House measure includes
about $550 billion in spending

and roughly $275 billion in tax °

cuts in hopes of spurring the

yesterday in Roosevelt Room of

‘. White House in Washington during

a meeting with business leaders to
discuss the economy.

Dharapak)

economy and helping those
directly affected. Much of the

‘spending would be for items

such as health care, jobless ben-

efits, food stamps and other .

programs that benefit victims

of the downturn.

On Capitol Hill, a a day of
debate on the measure opened
with most Democrats pressing
for passage and trumpeting the
measure as the elixir for what
ails their jobless constituents;
Republicans generally griped
about “insane” programs that
would be funded in the plan and

“minuscule” tax relief for small
businesses as they urged oppo-
sition.

“We need to address this eco-
nomic crisis head on,” said Rep.
Doris Matsui, D-Calif. “This
package is a substantial step for-
ward.”

“This package before us is
badly flawed,” countered Rep.
David Dreier, R-Calif., who
also lambasted Democrats. “It
appears that there is very little
focus on the merits and most of
the attention is focused on pol-
itics,” he said.

Republican support ranged

_ mostly from tepid to icy.

House Minority Leader John

Boehner wouldn’t say how he

thought the vote would turn
out, He did emphasize anew

that GOP members are worried
about billions in domestic
spending that “has nothing to
do with creating jobs or pre-

‘ serving jobs.”

“We’re for more than just
cutting taxes,” Boehner, R-
Ohio, said on ABC’s “Good
Morning America.”

Senate GOP leader Mitch
McConnell of Kentucky told

‘CNN that “where we have dif-

ferences with the House
Democrats is that the package
just doesn’t seem to reflect our
priorities, nor the president’s.”

McConnell said the propor-
tion of tax cuts versus spending
increases in the version being
pushed by Democrats has been
“crammed down” to about 20
per cent of the total instead of
the 40 per cent envisioned by
both Republicans and Obama.

Congressional leaders have
promised Obama they would
send.him the measure by mid-
February. .

In his remarks, Obama called
on everyone — corporate exec-
utives and factory floor workers,
educators and engineers, health

‘care professionals and elected

officials — to abandon a “sense
of irresponsibility that prevailed
from Wall Street to Washing-
ton.”
And he said his administra-

“tion would make certain the’

money would be spent in full
view of the public, with ways to
check where it goes and how it.
will be used — a nod to skepti-
cism about the “size and scale”
of the plan.

He left no doubt that he

_ means to see it signed into law,
_-and quickly — and that he

thinks those who stand in the
way will suffer the wrath of
angry voters.

“All we can do,.those of us
in Washington, is help create a
favorable climate in which
workers can prosper, businesses
can thrive, and our economy
can grow,” Obama said. “And
that’s exactly what I intend to
achieve - soon.” .

@ By COLLEEN BARRY
and MATT MOORE
AP Business Writers

DAVOS, Switzerland (AP)
— Chinese Premier Wen Jiabao
brought cautious optimism to
business and government lead-
ers pondering the worst finan-
cial crisis since the Great
Depression as the World Eco-
nomic Forum opened Wednes-
day. ;
Wen said China, a key mar-

ket for companies in developed

countries, believed it would be
able to meet its target of eight
per cent economic growth for

2009.

But, he conceded, it is “‘a tall
order.”

“China remains on the track
of steady and fast develop-
ment,” he said but added that in

‘the fourth quarter, growth
slowed to 6.8 per cent.

Eight percent would be phe-
nomenal in many countries, but

. would still represent retrench-
ment for China, where growth
in 2008 hit a seven-year low of
nine per cent. That broke a five-
year streak of double-digit
.. expansion.

Wen spoke to the gathering
of 2,500. political, business and
other leaders in the Swiss Alps
after an opening day of debate
over state-led bailouts and wor-
ries that efforts to counter cli-
mate change would fall by the
wayside.

The annual meeting of politi-
cians, well-heeled business lead-
ers and well-meaning activists
and celebrities gathered under a
pall of gloom that has seen per-
sonal fortunes trimmed, com-
panies shuttered and hundreds
of thousands jobs lost.

People are “depressed and
traumatized,” Rupert Murdoch,

Chinese leade









CHINESE Prime Minister Wen Jiabao speaks in a plenary session during

the opening day of the Annual Meeting of the World Economic Forum, WEF,

in Davos, Switzerland, Wednesday...
(AP Photo: Alessandro Della Bella)

chief executive of News Corp.
said on the first full day of the
World Economic Forum in
Davos, adding that worldwide
some “$50 trillion of personal
wealth” had vanished since the
crisis worsened with the Sep-
tember 15 collapse of US invest-
ment bank Lehman Bros. Co.
“The size of the problem con-
fronting us today is larger than
in the 1930s,” said billionaire
philanthropist George Soros.
The scope of the decline was
evident even among the gift
bags that attendees — who pay
thousands of dollars to partici-
pate — received this year.
Instead of loaded personal dig-
ital assistants, fine Swiss choco-
lates and gadgets they got basic,
blue-hued pedometers instead,

suggesting shoe leather instead .

of limos as a way to get to meet-
ings.

Some of the biggest players
contributing to the economic

slide stayed away, some of them

bankrupt or fired. So did top
economic policy makers in US
President Barack Obama’s new
administration.

Previous yéars saw a raft of
A-list star power — Claudia
Schiffer, Angelina Jolie and U2
frontman Bono. This year it’s
Peter Gabriel and film star Jet
Li. ;

Despite talk of more regula-
tion and government interven-
tion, there were pleas for free
market.

“Don’t let’s lose sight of what
creates wealth. It is open mar-

- kets, it is capitalism,” said Mur-

doch.
Economist Stephen Roach
gave a grim forecast for the

global economic outlook, say-

ing growth worldwide for the
next three years was only likely
to be about 2.5 per cent — what
the Morgan Stanley Asia chair-
man and longtime Davos
attendee termed a “near reces-
sion.” That compares with five
per cent growth over the last
four and a half years.

But even that was deemed
optimistic by some participants.

Experts said stimulus pack-
ages by developed nations
wouldn’t be enough to pull the
world out of the crisis, with
some calling instead for a coor-

_dinated fiscal response with a

greater role for multilateral
institutions like the Group of
20 wealthy and developing
nations.

“Based on our experience, a

capital injection is not enough,”. -
said Heizo Takenaka, the direc-

tor of Global Security Research
Institute at Japan’s Keio Uni-
versity. 4

Not everyone welcomed the
increasing role of governments,
but Martin Sorrell, CEO of the
British advertising company
WPP, said government’s hand
was necessary until the system
can be restored.

“You will get government out
when private industry has re-

established confidence,” he said. ~

“We all know government can-
not run banks but at the
moment no one has confidence
in the financial institutions.”

The crisis already is drying
up investment in developing
nations, said South Africa’s
Finance Minister Trevor
Manuel. He warned that “hur-
ried interventions” — in the
form of huge stimulus packages
— may “lead to naught.”

NTERNATIONAL BUSINESS |



“We see a lemming like
approach trying to get to the
precipice first without having
any idea what that money will
do.”

Among the 2,500 participants
in Davos are over 40 heads of
state who will discuss this year’s
theme of “shaping, the post-cri-
sis world” in fields such as ener-
gy, climate change and free

-trade. They include British

Prime Minister Gordon Brown,
European Commission Presi-
dent Jose Manuel Barroso, Ger-
man Chancellor Angela Merkel
and Japanese Prime Minister

- Taro Aso.

Russian: Prime Minister

* Vladimir Putin was to give the -

keynote address Wednesday,
shortly after Chinese Premier
Wen. p -

In response to Wen’s appear-
ance, dozens of Tibetans and
others met near a Davos train
station, chanted “Free Tibet”
and held signs with similar polit-
ical slogans. One read: “Change
in Tibet W(H)EN?”

receptive crowd on a
few little known
facts about the Is}am
religion and their
following here in the
Bahamas.

There are over
one billion Muslims
(followers of Islam)
in the world,
although the

Bahamas' population is less than one per cent. Its.
decree has the second largest following in the world.
"We reject terrorism," said Dr Rashaad, “all of
these acts of violence run counter to Islam, the reli-

gion of peace."

Islamic following in the Bahamas can be traced

back to the time of slavery, said Dr Rashaad, as seen
in "Aspects of Slavery" that has a letter addressed to
Governor. Sir James Carmichael Smyth from a liber-
ated African living in Adelaide (1831). This cites pas-
sages from the Koran (or Quran), thereby disproving

the notion that all slaves were illiterate (page 25).

The book can be found in the Government Public
Records Office at the Ministry of Education.

Michael Craton, author of "A History of the
Bahamas" said: "Taking into account the usual ship-
ping routes; it is probable that most of the Bahamian
Negroes came from the more northerly -parts of
Africa. There were found the brown-skinned
Mandingoes, Fulani and Hausa." It is sociological
and historical fact that these tribes were predomi-
nantly Muslim, said Dr Rashaad.

‘Due to harshness.and.rigors of slavery, Islam did.

Come with

In Mark 1:17, Our Lord Jesus Christ
says to the disciples: “Come with me
and I will.teach you to catch people.”
This is the next step after the “come and

see” invitation extended to Nathaniel in:

last week’s gospel. It is not enough for
us to come and observe, we are called to
follow and prepare for ministry through
discipleship.

Since we cannot walk the streets of
Galilee with Jesus, this discernment
process takes place in prayer, in faithful
study of the Scriptures, in worship, in
Christian fellowship, in loving sacrificial
service and in close observation of the
ways of God in the world. Spiritual
direction, selective reading, periods of
silence, fasting, and manual labour, all
add to the. ability to draw closer to the
Lord.

We are all called by God to intimate
relationship and prayerful action: “For
it is God who works in you both to will
and to do his good pleasure” (Phil.
- 2:13). We are called to pray for one
another even:as Jesus intercedes for us
in heaven. We are called to transform
our nation through prayerful, fasting,
praise, and loving response to need. It is
a lifelong undertaking that passes from
one generation to the next.

Ask yourself the following questions:

Am I willing to spend one minute a

The in between

I witnessed something amazing and it
made me realise why we accept Jesus
Christ as Lord and Saviour.

On Saturday, I had a beauty moment
and went to have my nails done. When
I walked in, the atmosphere was so sat-
urated with the presence of God it was
therapeutic. If that was a church service;
worship would not been have difficult
- to. accomplish. I walked in on one of the
most powerful conversations ever. One
of the nail technicans (a Christian) was
encouraging a client in the word of God.
As she was speaking life to whatever sit-
uation the client was dealing with, tears
were streaming down her face. The nail
technican told the client that situations
and circumstances do not stay the same
forever. She told her that when the time
comes, God will allow her to do the_
things she needed to do. "You are in the
in between," she said.

. Sitting there waiting to be served, my

eyes welled with tears. There was noth-
ing wrong with me, I wasn't going
through anything, but I could identify
with what was being said. Because we
don't understand how God operates all
the time, and we are an impatient peo-
ple, waiting on Him sometimes seems
hard and like forever. I will-say that
when God says to wait, He knows why.
It's time He takes out to prepare us for
what will happen. Not that I'm out from
being 'in between’, but as time goes on,
it get easier because God reassures you

day praying for our nation? There is a
request circulated as an e-mail suggest-
ing that we all do this at 9pm each
evening.

Am I willing to catch people by quiet-
ly sharing my faith?

Have I identified what God has done
for me in the past month and am I able
to articulate that with gratitude and pas-
sion?

Do I understand what the benefits
and blessings of being a Christian
involves?

Am I undertaking the tasks and
shouldering the responsibilities associ-
ated with my own discipleship and the
discipling of others?

How would I evaluate my past per-
formance as one called to catch people?
How will I do better from now on?

It is never too late to come and see
and certainly never too late to come and
be with Jesus and walk through life with
Him as your constant companion.





that He is with you to the end.

Sometimes you get weary of what you
are waiting on. You can't help think,
"how long, Lord?" and then He lets you
know: “ Just a little while longer and
until then my grace is sufficient.

What was being said was needed: I
once heard a wise man say, ‘we didn't
get saved to only miss hell.’ God has a
work for each of us to do. We have to
find our assignment and complete it. I
think it is very selfish to only do some-
thing for what you can get in return.
God deserves so much more than that.
We should be beyond the place where
we do it because at the end of the day
we will be rewarded.

_ We should do ministry because it was
what we were born to do- always keep-
ing in mind that only what is done for
Christ will last. So what this lady was
doing was the right thing for a believer
of Jesus Christ.

Our main job as children of Godi is to
retrieve souls for the Kingdom of God.
All that we do and are able to do is for
one purpose alone, to bring souls to
God. That is the best contribution we
can ever make as Christians. So let us all
do the work of the evangelist and turn
people to God.

Prosper God’s Way!
Text: Luke Chapters 1:5 — 2:40

The Gospel Message is the method of transforming
the ‘Minds of Men’ to understand the ‘Will of God:’
Psalm 1:1-3 records, “Blessed is the man whose
delight is in the Law of the Lord, whatever he does
shall prosper.” :

The Gospel Message contains God’s Plan for our
Lives: Jeremiah conveys God’s message, “I know well
the plans | have in mind for you, says the Lord, plans
for your welfare, not for woe! Plans to give you a future
full of hope.” Solomon writes a Proverb, “In his mind
aman plans his course, but the Lord directs his steps.”

Pastor Ben Bailey
The Prophetic Voice
P. O. Box N-9518

Tpv.inc@coralwave.com
God has a purpose and a_ plan for every human living
on planet Earth: You were created for a specific
purpose; and when you discover through divine instruction how to position and _
submit yourself to fulfill it: spiritual empowerment will be released from within
you, causing the work you are engaged in, to seemingly take a life of its own,
and prosper beyond your wildest imagination. Personal and Financial resources
will not be a problem, because both will be drawn by the infectious success of
your passion.

Jesus: The Miracle Birth: Luke records, “In the days of Herod, the king of
Judea, there was a certain priest named Zacharias, of the course of Abijah: his
wife was of the daughters of Aaron, and-her name was Elizabeth. They were
both righteous before God, walking blameless in all the commandments and
ordinances of the Lord. They had no child, because Elizabeth was barren, and

- both were advanced in their days. An angel of the Lord appeared to him as he ©

was standing on the right of the altar of incense; and said to him, do not fear,
Zacharias. Your prayer is heard, and your wife Elizabeth shall bear you a son,
and you shall call his name John.

Obvious questions arise: Why was this old’man with an old and barren wife
praying for a child? Why did he ask the angel for a sign: the fact that the angel
appeared to him in answer to a seemingly impossible prayer should have been
sufficient for any reasonable person, don’t you agree? Was his speechless state
a way to keep him from aborting the.conception of the child according to the
divine announcement; because he did not fully believe?

In the sixth month the angel Gabriel was sent from God into a city of Galilee,
named Nazareth, to a virgin betrothed to a man whose name was Joseph, of
the house of David. And the virgin's name was Mary. The angel came in to her
and said, Hail, one receiving grace, the Lord is with you. Blessed are you among
women. When she saw him, she was troubled at his saying, and considered
what kind of greeting this might be. The angel said to her, do not fear, Mary, for
you have found favor with God. Behold! You shall conceive in your womb and
bear a son, and you shall call His name JESUS.

Key Verses: “Behold, your cousin Elizabeth ‘also conceived a son in her old
age. This is the sixth month with her who was called barren, for with God nothing
shall be impossible. The pronouncement of her old and barren cousin being six
months pregnant was sufficient to convince the virgin to submit her will to God’s
plan. The writer is convinced, without Elizabeth’s pregnancy, Mary may have
never conceded. A songwriter penned in legal terms, “I have no other argument,
| have no other plea.” “Mary said, Behold the servant of the Lord. Let it be to
me according to your word, and the angel departed from her.”

Adam Clarke examined Mary’s statement and provided this interpretation, “|
fully credit. what you say, and am perfectly ready to obey your commands, and
to accomplish all the purposes of your grace concerning me. It appears that
at the instant of this act of faith, and purposed obedience, the conception of
the immaculate humanity of Jesus took place; and it was Done unto her
according to his word.”

Jesus: A Powerful Ministry: The Demonic at Gadatanes possessed by Legion
was left behind as a witness. When Jesus returned, all who previously asked
Him to leave had a change of heart, and welcomed Him. The woman with the
issue of Blood was healed by touching His robe. Jairus’ Daughter was raised.
to life. Blind Bartimaeus received his sight.

Consider This: John was beheaded and Jesus was crucified! What sane person
would readily embrace a blessing; if they knew beforehand, these come by
persecutions; and knew further, the greater the blessing the greater the trouble.
The answer is nobody!

Great accomplishments require personal sacrifices; and, are accompanied by
persecutions (troubles)!

Underhill’s Report 1862



In 1861, Edward Bean Underhill of
the English Baptist Society. made a tour
of the West Indies to report on the
social and religious conditions and the
progress of the Baptist Missionaries. He
gave a wonderful description of all the
places he visited and the state of reli-

gion in-each of them. Following are.

edited excerpts of his visit to the
Bahamas:
“The Wesleyans have, in Nassau, a

large and flourishing congregation..

They. were about to erect a new chapel

(Trinity Methodist Church) at a cost of '

£4000, towards which they had secured
a grant of £1000 from the island
Treasury, payable in installments in
three years. The Kirk of Scotland pos-

sesses a handsome church, and the .

Church of England has four congrega-
tions in the island. The Establishment is
presided over by an archdeacon, who is
paid £1000 per annum by the British
Government. Lately, the Bahamas has
been transformed into a bishopric
(1861).

“Our (Baptist) missionary operations
commenced in 1833 with the arrival of
the Rev J Burton, from Jamaica. There
was known to exist a considerable num-
ber of persons calling themselves
Baptists, who traced their religious
belief to the exertions of black men,
brought from the United States. Mr
Burton found that little had been done
for the religious benefit of the slaves.
The Church of England was indifferent,
and the Wesleyan body had confined its
ministrations to the white and free
coloured population. The people were
addicted to all vices incident to West
Indian slavery. The leaders of the so
called (Afro-) Baptist churches were
illiterate men - only one could read. The
people who followed them indulged in
many superstitious practices, and paid
scant regard to the moral precepts of
the gospel. :

“At the time of my visit, missionary
churches had been formed on eighteen
islands, containing 2656 members,
divided into three districts, under the
superintendence of the Reverends J
Davey, W Littlewood, and WK Rycroft.
Moreover, there are scattered through
the islands considerable numbers of
native Baptists, who regard the Rev Mr

Romer, of Nassau, as their pastor. He.

has a congregation of some 600 persons,
assembling in a plain but substantial
chapel, in the capital. I found him to be
a very worthy man, not of much educa-
tion, but devoted, humble, and pious,
and living in fraternal intercourse with
the missionary.

. “Nassau, Inagua, and Grand Cay, are
the places of abode of the missionaries,
whence they make excursions to the

tained by the Society; but the native
pastors are supported partly by the con-
tributions of the people, and partly
from the resources of the churches in
the three central islands of the districts.

The Baptist church in Nassau: con-
tains upwards of seven hundred mem-
bers. It has two chapels. The Mission
chapel (Zion) is well situated in the cen-
tre of the town, near the public offices,
with the Mission House close by; the

other (Bethel) is about a mile off, where -

the mass of the black people reside.

“I had the pleasure of addressing
large audiences in both, on several
occasions, as well as the congregation of
Mr Romer. Nothing could exceed the
order, attention, and _ respectable
appearance of the black people who
crowded them. Connected with the
Nassau church are stations in the vil-
lages of Fox Hill, Carmichael, and
Adelaide, the latter a settlement of cap-
tured Africans on the side of the island

_ opposite to Nassau.

Mr Underhill visits San Salvador
(Cat Island). “Entering a small haven,
called Bennett's Harbour, where there
is a village of thirty houses, the resi-
dence of our native pastor, J Laroda,
San Salvador contains about 1900
inhabitants, scattered in ten villages.
They are all Baptists, belonging either
to our mission, or to the native commu-
nity under Mr Romer. There is a meet-
ing house in each village, and the ten
churches number 340 members. Each

church has its leader and elders, who:

conduct the classes, and is independent
of the rest in its church order and disci-
pline. Mr Laroda travels among them as
their common pastor.”

Mr Underhill gives examples of the ©

hymns and comments: “The music was
a kind of chant not wanting in melody,
and had a very exciting effect upon the
singers. They told me that with such
songs, they often comforted and ani-
mated one another in the days of old,
when working in the bush, or cotton
plantation.”

“T was much struck with the excellent
pronunciation of our English tongue,
which prevails throughout these islands.
The captain of our schooner said in
explanation, that it was owing to the
schools, and that the Bahaman Negroes
pride themselves on their good articula-

Out Islands"Fhei missionaties ate ists 4 | fon.”

He visits Matthew Town, Inagua ©
where “Mr Littlewood has erected a
good substantial chapel of stone, with a
shingled roof, that will hold 300 per-
sons. It is always full when he is at
home. There are eighty-four members’
in church fellowship. Much of the tim-
ber, and the panels of the pulpit, came
from the wreck of a steamer. The large
bell was recently purchased from anoth-
er wreck. It was on its way to Cuba,
there to summon the slaves of a sugar
estate to the field.”

“The Church of England has a church
in the town, which is well attended. The
clergyman and the missionary cordially
unite in every public measure for the
moral .and spiritual well being of the
people.

“During the week of our stay, visits
were paid to the various islands and set-
tlements. An excellent chapel has been
built in Grand Cay, which will hold 600
people. The church contains about 150
members, and on the other islands there
are 280 more. A good chapel also exists
at Salt Cay, while in the Caicos Stations,
the places of worship are of a more
humble character.

“Grand Cay enjoys the ministrations
of an excellent clergyman, whose repro-
bation of vice has brought upon him the
enmity of some of the white inhabitants.
The Wesleyans have also a good chapel,
and a flourishing society, said to number
430 persons in the entire colony. The
attendance of all classes on public wor-
ship is. tolerably good, but there are
many in Grand Cay who go nowhere.
The discipline of the Baptist church
appeared to be carefully maintained,
while in all respects its arrangements
were similar to those I have already
described.

“So dissatisfied is Mr Rycroft with the
Government school in the Caicos, that
he has felt obliged to establish one
under the superintendence of the excel-
lent native pastor, Mr S (Shadrach).
Kerr.

“At Governor's Harbour where the
village is built on a rock united to the
island by a strip of sand, we had a good
gathering of the people in the evening,
and were kindly entertained by our.
native brother, Mr McDonald. Religion
here seemed to be. in a languid state.
The chapel was a poor structure of wat-
tle and thatch, a good stone building
near at hand having been begun, but
never completed..

Back in Nassau: “Our gratifying visit
was closed with a.crowded missionary
meeting, in which we enjoyed the assis-
tance of the Presbyterian and Wesleyan
ministers.”

HUNDREDS, including children, attended the eighth annual ‘Sunday School Rally in the
Alley’ that was held on Sunday at the Big Harvest Community Sunday School.

SUNDAY SCHOOL
RALLY IN THE VALLEY

@ By JEFFARAH GIBSON



THE eighth annual ‘Sunday School

Rally in the Alley’ was held on Sunday:

at the Big Harvest Community Sunday
School, to honour seven outstanding
Sunday/Sabbath school teachers who
have contributed to the growth and
development of their respective
schools.

Rivianna Smith, Sunday school
teacher at the Church of God of
Prophecy, Althea Tinker, a Sabbath
School teacher, Betty Clarke, from

Rhodes Memorial Methodist church,

Alice Adams, a Sunday school teacher
at Evangelistic Temple, Willamae
Knowles, a Sunday school teacher at
Chapel on the Hill and Wordell Dean,
a Sunday school teacher at New
Destiny Baptist Church, were all given
‘The Conquering Lion award’.

‘Fhe teachers are well deserving of
such a prestigious award, since they all
have been dedicated and committed to
teaching the fundamentals of Christian
living.

John Ferguson, community Sunday
school superintendent said _ the
awardees have contributed a great deal
to the community, and deserve nothing
less. “The Conquering Lion award was
given to these persons for succeeding
against the odds. These seven teachers
throughout the years have contributed
to Sunday/Sabbath school. They were
teachers who throughout the years,
inspired and shared their Biblical
knowledge and Christian experience
with hundreds of persons, their schools
in particular and the local church. In
general they..are.beacons..of-light in
their respective communities. Because
of their Christian witness, many per-
sons came to know Christ as their per-

sonal savior,” he said.

The guest speaker for the rally was
Pastor Rick Dames from Family Faith
Ministries International who rendered
an electrifying speech on ‘Rebuilding
the Walls’. He spoke on rebuilding the
walls of kindness, the importance of
family, and respect for elders as well as
others. He also: touched a little on the.
sacredness of Church.

With a society and country plagued
by crimes mainly committed by
younger persons, Mr Ferguson said
that there is a demand for Sunday
school, since many people seem to
ignore the laws of love and engage in
activities that totally contrast Christian
living.

“If you look around, the crime in the
Bahamas is very high and it seems as
though the youth and others are
neglecting the teachings of the Bible.
Many of them probably don’t know
what it is to love and show kindness to
the people surrounding them. In order
for them to -learn to love, and care,
they must be taught. what the word
love actual means. And Sunday school
is the only place where children ‘can
learn the fundamentals of . Christian
living. The knowledge needs to be
shared as well as explained,” he said.

He also noted that while there is a
demand for Sunday school, there is
also a demand for dedicated and com-
mitted teachers~just like the ones who
were honoured.

Hundreds of persons came out and
supported the: honourees. Children
were able to come as they were- as

_ there was no formal dress code for the

event.

St Agnes Anglican Church in Orange Creek
Cat Island celebrates its Patronal Festival

The feast day within the octave of St
Agnes was celebrated on Saturday
January 25, on Orange Creek, Cat
Island. Parishioners from. throughout
the island turned out in full force to
hear the sermon delivered by Canon
Neil Roach, once the priest in charge-
of St Saviour's Parish in Cat Island. Fr
Chester Burton in his welcome address
noted that Cannon Roach’s tenure-
1966-1968-occured during a massive
paradigm shift to Majority Rule in
Nassau.

In his sermon Canon Roach
preached on change. He admonished
the congregation that when one comes
in contact with Jesus they aré a-
changed individual. He also commend-
ed the parish and Fr Burton for the
improvements done to the church..-
They included new windows, tiles and
walls. He-said it would have been near
impossible during the sixties for this to

-have taken place. Canon Roach was

instrumental in rebuilding the edifice
after a hurricane:

After the Eucharist mass on Sunday
afternoon parishioners processed
down the main Orange Creek Highway
and around the parking lot of the
Cleare's Food Store Complex located
next to St Agnes and back.





_ Chippingham

The celebration mass held last
Sunday, January 25 launched the 75th
Anniversary celebrations for the St
Joseph's Roman Catholic Church.
Over 800 parishioners and prominent
country leaders were in attendance at
the service which was presided over by °
Father Martin Gomez. Among the
special guests in attendance were
Prime Minister Hubert Ingraham,
Governor General Arthur Hanna and
Deputy Prime Miéinister,- Brent
Symonette. Also in attendance were
Attorney General. Michael Barnett
and Minister of Social Services,
Loretta Butler- Turner. This service
marks the first in a series of year long

events that will be apart of the
anniversary celebrations.
The theme for the year is: “St

Joseph's, Looking Back, Moving
Forward, as a Family of Faith.”
These 75 years have been good to St
Joseph's family, a ministry founded in
the heart of the historic Bain Town and
communities. St
Joseph's continues to be a spiritual and
moral compass in these communities,
and for people born and raised in
them. The church's cornerstone was

laid in 1933 and several generbtions.of %

to ~-

Bahamian families continue
embrace St Joseph's as their spiritual

home.

The parish outreach ministries are
dynamic and vibrant and support the
building up of the members and com-
munity. The adult day care centre,
youth ministries, Saturday soup
kitchen and home visitation ministries

are some’ of the areas in which the’

parish gives support and fellowship to
the parishioners and the communities.

The parish centre is under construc-
tion and progressing steadily. Soon the
communities will have a place to meet
for social and other gatherings.

The school, now amalgamated with
St Francis School as St Francis and St
Joseph's Catholic School, continues to
provide the same excellent quality pri-
mary education it has over the years.

- Through the pioneering work of Fr_

Marcian Peters; the St Bernard's
Sporting Club gave many Bahamian
sports personalities their start. Persons
including Dr BJ Nottage and Tom
(The Bird) Grant were members of the
St Bernard's Sporting Club.

The church will celebrate the

not survive during that era," he contin-
ued, "our forefathers were unable to
practice their faith and consequently
Islam never flourished. Conditions now
are much more conducive f6r the
growth and development of ‘this faith
which emphasises the worship of one
God alone and-the finality of Prophet
Hood with Muhammad, who estab-
lished Islam 1430 years ago in Arabia.".

Muslims maintain that their forefa-
thers from. Africa found the "new
world" an entire century before
Christopher Columbus, a Spaniard tra-
ditionally celebrated as the founder.

"Muslims always knew that the Earth
was round, and that it was possible to
travel the globe by sea," said Dr
Rashaad. ©

Today the Islamic community has
attained two acres of land in the
Carmichael area, in which they have
built their worship center — the masjid,
and plan to build a school for Muslim
children, an Imam's residence and a
business centre where Muslims can con-
duct business.

The Bahamian Muslims recognise
that in order for the growth and devel-
opment of their community, they must











invite people to join them. “The Muslim
community in the Bahamas, though a
relatively small one, has been quite
active and has seen a’steady growth of
its membership. over the years, mainly
due to people embracing the religion,"
he said.

_In reaching their hands out to society,
the Islamic community prepared an
assessment of the crime situation of the
Bahamas,. and outlined a few recom-
mendations which were presented to
government in February, 1995.

"The document was well received by
the Government and the Bahamian
society. The Government is already -
implementing. a number of its recom-
mendations," said Dr Rashaad. There is
also an Islamic presence in Freeport, he
said.

Dr Rashaad finished saying, "Victory
will come with patience and persever-
ance, as Allah says: ‘Surely, along with
every hardship is relief.'| We (Muslims
and non-Muslims) should work for
bridging the gap between words and
actions, between precept and practice,
in the country where we live."

Allah also says, "O you who believe!
Stand out firmly for Allah as just wit-
nesses; and let not the enmity and
hatred of others make you avoid justice.
Be just: that is nearer to piety."

A MAN convicted of the high profile 1996 murder of Club
601 manager Joyanne Cartwright was gunned down late Tues-
day night, increasing the murder count for the year to five.

The case, which at one point identified lawyer Obafemi |

Lynden Pindling, as'a witness, Was still active, according: to the
Attorney General’s Office.

to which the Court of Appeal ordered a retrial.

Public Prosecutions Director Bernard Turner of the Attor- :

Newbold’s death, Cartwright’s murder case is essentially closed.

Mr ‘Turner explained that, after an appeal was lodged by |
‘Newbold against ‘his March, 2003, conviction, the Court of -|_
‘Appeal overturned the conviction on the basis that the trial |
judge allowed evidence from the accused’s confession into the

ALLEGED TRAVOLTA EXTORTION PLOT



Don't publicly indict politicians
without evidence, say senior PLPs

Claim that corruption allegations should be proven before public office bar.

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

UNLESS allegations of corruption and scan-

dal against members of the Progressive Liberal
Party are proven, they should not be barred
from running for public office, two senior
PLPs said yesterday. -

Former culture minister Neville Wisdom

believes the current system of selecting can-
didates is effective in filtering: ‘out unacceptable
individuals.

He cautioned against public indictments of
politicians without evidence, as this could deter
would-be newcomers to the political fray.

"If you look at the history of the politics in
the Bahamas and look at corruption, there
have been incidences on both sides where peo-
ple have been accused, and sometimes vindi-
cated, from accusations of corruption.

“J don't think any PLP or any sensible think-
ing Bahamian condones acts of corruption but

_natural justice has to.prevail and you cannot.

indict someone or find them guilty before they
have a trial.
"We've got to be cautious in determining

.what is a scandal in terms of truth from spec-

ulation. Because if we don't do that, we're
going to find very‘soon that good people will
not offer themselves for politics because. any-
one could scandalises your name. and very
often there's no foundation of truth to these
_ scandals," he said.

Neville Wisdom V Alfred Gray



MP for the MICAL constituency v Alfred
Gray also weighed i in, saying: "In every'coun-
try whether you're a politician or otherwise,
there will be things said about you (but) the
proof is in the pudding. ‘When you ‘prove‘an’
allegation then it becomes reason for concern,
but people could accuse the prime minister
tomorrow of stealing money; should he resign
because somebody says he stole some mon-
ey? "

The two men were responding to statements
made by PLP hopeful Paul Moss, who argued
that scandal tainted party members should
not run for election in 2012, in’an effort to
help save the party's image.

Mr Wisdom and Mr Gray spoke. to The. Tri-
bune on Bank Lane yesterday, where they

were lending their support to embattled former °

senator Pleasant Bridgewater, who was
arraigned i in Magitnte s Court on ehataes, of

‘day.

abetment to extort and conspiracy to extort.
Last week's arrest of Ms Bridgewater, along
with the questioning of ‘West End and Bimini

_MP Obie Wilchcombe in connection with an
_alleged plot to extort celebrity J ohn Travolta,

rocked the PLP.
-Mr Wilchcombe. was released pending an

‘ongoing police investigation, but Bridgewa-

ter along with ambulance driver Tarino Light-

' bourne were arraigned on related charges this
. week. When considered in addition to the,

many controversies PLP Cabinet ministers
‘found themselves embroiled in during the par.

ty's 2002-2007 term, many wonder if the party:

* can rébound.

"The PLP is a very resilient party} we wil.
move from strength to strength and continue
to prepare for the next general election," saic
Mr Wisdom, who lost his Killarney seat ir
2007 to Health Minister Dr Hubert Minnis.

PLP MP for South Andros Picewell Forber

admitted the party is experiencing "challeng.

ing moments" but predicted a strong message
from the leader Perry Christie in the comin;
days. "Amidst all these challenges that we
are hearing today we are going to hold fas:
because the PLP has a rich history and ha:
done much in this society over the years. ;
"Therefore it is bigger than one or two indj-'
viduals or entities. So it is against this backdrop
that I’m hoping for the very best and I think
you are going to hear something very strong

- Union seeks lo GIISUIFE vulnerable lai Off workers get hack lo work

.M@ By DENISE MAYCOCK

FREEPORT — The Bahamas
Hotel. Catering and Allied Work-
ers Union is seeking to make sure
that the most vulnerable workers
who were laid off from the Our
Lucaya Resort get back on. the
job..

Kevin Gardiner, a union rep-
resentative in Freeport, said that
the union is trying to help preg-
nant women and péople in the
same household who were among
the 181 persons laid off on Fri-

“We are finding out that there
are persons living in the same

house who were.affected.as,well =;

those who are pregnant,” he said.

“We are addressing these mat-



ters and some of the persons have
been taken back to.work, but we
are still trying to determine how
many persons are affected.”

Mr Gardiner said the union is
also addressing alleged discrep-
ancies in redundancy payments
made to some of the faid off
workers. He reported that 20 of
them are claiming they did not
receive adequate redundancy
packages, and some say they were
not awarded the.Christmas
bonuses they had accrued.

“We have assured those per-
sons that they receive their prop-
er payments this week,” he said.

- President Roy Colebrook could
not be.reached for comment up to

press time. Some’ union execu- ©

tives.in. Freeport have. criticised
Mr Colebrook for failing to warn

- workers about the impending lay-
‘offs before they took place.

Second vice president Lionél
Morley and trustee Ian Neely said

that they were never told about -

the move by: management.

Our Lucaya Resort has been
experiencing low occupancy for
some time. Management said it
did all it could to keep employees
on through Christmas by putting
workers on reduced hours and
work rotation: The Hutchison

- Owns the property, which includes

a Westin and.a Sheraton hotel.

‘Room rates have been reduced _

~ and séveral amenities at the resort

have been discontinued due to



low occupancy.

Veteran
immigration
officers asked
to retire, say
sources

FREEPORT - A few vet-
eran immigration officers on
Grand Bahama have been
asked to voluntarily retire, it
has been claimed.

According to sources,
Erro] Ferguson, Spence
Dorsett, Roosevelt Newbold
and another senior official
have asked to accept retire-
ment packages.

Fostina Major, assistant
director of immigration for
Freeport, could not be
reached for comment,up to
press time yesterday.

The government has
embarked on a major
restructuring of three of the
country’s law enforcement
agencies — the Royal
Bahamas Police Force and
the Customs and Immigra-
tion departments.

About 15 senior police
officers were asked to volun-
tarily retire this month.

Similar requests have been
made at Customs.

Cuba: closing
Gitmo prison
positive, but

insufficient

Cuban Foreign Minister
Felipe Perez on Wednesday
demanded that the U.S. return
the Guantanamo naval base to
Cuba, though he welcomed .
President Barack Obama’s
order to close the detention
center there, according to the
Associated Press.

‘We have always said that
Cuba expects to recover this
territory,” Perez Roque
of the basé near easternmost






the prison for: terrorism’ sus-
pects within a year is “posi-
tive,” but “insufficient,” the
foreign minister said at a news
cohference.

‘The U.S. naval base was
built on land permanently

leased from Cuba under terms *

imposed when American
troops occupied the island in
1903.

Peréz Roque gave details
about Cuba’s annual human
rights report to the United
Nations’ Human Rights Coun-
cil, which is to be submitted
on Feb. 5. A U.N. vote on the
report is expected in July.

Cuba uses the report to
‘defend its rights record, argu-
ing that its communist govern-
ment answers to the people
and saying its controls on,
unions, social groups and the
media work to strengthen
individual freedoms.

It says free health care, edu-
cation and other government -
subsidies ensure Cubans enjoy
more human rights than peo-
ple in most other nations.

Detractors maintain that
Cuba holds more than 200 -
political prisoners and fails to
respect rights such as freedom
of speech, assembly and the
press. The government dis-
misses those charges and
maintains the prisoners in
question are mercenaries who
were working with foreign
governments to undermine
the island’s political and eco-
nomic system. Perez Roque
also said that the U.N.’s tor-
ture investigator, Manfred

‘Nowak, will be invited to the
visit the island this year.

Although anti-communist
exiles regularly accuse the
communist government of tor-

. ture, Perez Roque said there
have been no cases of torture,
forcible disappearances or
extrajudicial killings on the
island since the triumph of the
Cuban revolution 50 years -
ago. Nowak, an Austrian law
professor, has been in touch
with Obama’s advisers and °
European governments to find
places for Guantanamo
inmates who cannot bé sent
home when the camp. closes.

President Raul Castro last
week also demanded that the
U.S. return the Guantanamo
territory to Cuba.

for sciaal protection bill

B By MEGAN REYNOLDS
Tribune Staff Reporter
mreynolds@tribunemedia.net

BIRDS crammed into cages,
horses in dirty, dilapidated sta-
bles and breeding dogs kept in
tiny spaces will be a thing of the
past under the Animal Protection
and Control Act.

But the Act drawn up by an ad
hoc committee:of animal experts
in 2005 is still in the draft stage
four years on, and animal rights

campaigners are calling on the .

public to end the unnecessary suf-

fering of animals that wilhvéntin=

ue without consequence until a
bill is pushed through parliament.
Executive director of the
Humane Society Stephen Turn-
quest said it is paramount that

‘the legislation be enacted. this

year to protect our feathered and
four-legged friends from the per-
ils of a booming animal trade.
Mr Turnquest said: “The most
important thing in the legislation
is for us to get proper guidelines
for the regulations for pet stores,
guard dog kennels and anyone
running a dog breeding business.
“Everybody seems to want to

be a dog breeder, because it’s a
way of making a couple of dol-
lars. Single mothers will have a
few dogs in the yard and breed

them indiscriminately, but if you ~

are going to be breeding dogs you
should have a particular area, a
kennel, set up for them.

“We don’t have guidelines, and
the new legislation would make
persons more responsible
whether they are a dog breeder, a
pet store owner or have a canine
security business, because some of

those dogs are kept in terrible

conditions.”

Inspectors fromthe Humane °

Society are unable to force animal

breeders to clean up their ani-.

mals’ living conditions without
the legislation to back them up, so
they rely on veterinarians to give
animal owners advice.

The-Act ‘would also heighten
the consequences of mistreating
animals, raising penalties from a
maximum $150 fine and three

months in prison to $5,000 or ©

$10,000 fines and longer jail
terms. Mr Turnquest is urging
animal lovers to lobby their MPs
and the prime minister to bring
the Act to parliament and stop

pet shops from keeping birds in
cramped cages, where distressed
parrots pluck out their feathers,
and horse drivers from keeping
their animals in squalid stables.

Mr Turnquest said: “The state
some of those horses have to go
through is horrible.

“The conditions are really, real-
ly shabby and the Humane Soci-
ety does its best to go around try-
ing to assist these people, telling
them this is what you need to put
in place, but you can’t because
there are no guidelines to enforce.

“And if they have any guide-
lines for farms, they are not
enforcing them because there are
farms where they put as many
pigs as they can all together — it’s
disgusting. But if there are laws
on the books saying this is what a
stable should look like; or what a
breeding kennel area should look
like, and this is what is required of
a pet store, then people would
have to put those in place or give
up their licence.”

Mr Turnquest said the public
could support the Animal Pro-
tection and Control Act by e-
mailing PM Hubert Ingraham at
hubertingraham@bahamas.gov.bs

Local meta criticised for focus on PLP ‘personalities’

m@ By PAUL G TURNQUEST
Tribune Staff Reporter
pturnquest@tribunemedia.net

ARAWAK Homes boss and PLP financier
Franklyn Wilson said he is amazed at how much
ink the local dailies are dedicating to “personali-
ties”. in the PLP — without any mention of: politicians

in the governing party.

“I mean it is just a constant thing, and not just in
the editorials — in the news. I know so much about
the other party that the Bahamian people are total-
ly ignorant to. And the Bahamian people are total-
ly ignorant to it because for whatever reason the
media here do not regard it as news,” Mr Wilson
said. He stressed that he is not trying to downplay
the political fall-out from the predicament former
PLP senator Pleasant Bridgewater finds herself in,
“but I just find it amazing that The Tribune in par-
ticular finds so niuch interest in making the Bahami-
an public so aware of what is wrong in the PLP and
somehow nothing can ever be found or adverse

comment about the FNM.”

The former PLP parliamentarian said that if you
go by the editorials of The Nassau Guardian and The
Tribune, it seems as if the government can never do

any wrong.

Wilson

While Mr Wilson said that there is
no question Ms Bridgewater did the
right thing by resigning her post in
the Senate, he can not comment on
her possible future in the party.

As for the consequences of the
extortion allegations brought by John
Travolta and his family, which Ms

Bridgewater has been charged in connection with, he

said: “I don’t see this as effecting the economic cli-
mate in the Bahamas. I think the minister of nation-
al security was correct and I commend him for his
statement, which in my mind I think was measured,
that this will not have an impact on the economic cir-
cumstance of the country. That is what I under-
stand the minister to have said and I accept that as
a measured and reasonable comment,” he said.
Mr Wilson said the main issue facing the Bahamas
today is not the fortunes of the PLP, but the fact that
the country is not progressing economically thanks
to the “terrible policies” of the FNM government.
“That is fact number one. Two; that trend has

been exacerbated through global,economic forces.

Faction in PLP ‘out of order’

WE WERE shocked by the headline in yes-_.
terday’s Tribune — “Faction in PLP wants May- ~
nard-Gibson out.”

Mrs Gibson will be called on to testify in a
case brought by actor John Travolta against
former senator Pleasant Bridgewater and a
paramedic. Mr Travolta accuses the duo of con-
spiracy to extort $25 million from him after the
tragic death of his teenage son.

Mrs Gibson is the Travolta family’s lawyer.
She is also Ms Bridgewater’s colleague in the
PLP and until Ms Bridgewater’s weekend res-
gnation, her fellow senator.

No one knows what testimony Mrs Gibson
will give in the case. As a fellow PLP Senator
said it could be no more than being called on to
affirm that she is the actor’s lawyer.

However, before kriowing the facts, it is
reported that an “influential faction” of the
PLP has taken exception to Senator Gibson
giving testimony in a case against a member of
her own party.

They are already actively seeking to appoint
a disciplinary committee. to sit in judgment on
Senator Gibson to force her out of the PLP.
And, obviously, to strip her of her position as
Opposition Leader in the Senate.

Is this a move to try to silence Mrs Gibson?
If so the police should be questioning whether
there is an underground movement afoot to try
to obstruct justice in this case, and tamper with
a witness.

Although Mrs Gibson might give evidence
that could help her political colleague, this
“influential” group of party members obvious-
ly assumes that her testimony will not be
favourable.

_ Let’s assume that it is not. Also let us assume
that not only is it not favourable, but what she
might say is true. Is she to be faced with having
to make a choice between telling the truth on
behalf of her client or lying to protect her par-
ty from a “grave injustice.”

If this is in fact the case is it any wonder
that Fox’s news show commentator Bill O’Reil-
ly can sneeringly warn his fellow Americans

_“to be careful” when dealing with Bahamian
officials? Or that CNN’s acid-tongued, Nancy

Grace can dredge up the Anna Nicole scandal.

and drag Bahamian officials through the mud?" >:

We can just imagine where this will go if
O’Reilly or Grace hears about it..In short order
the-world will know that certain persons in the
Bahamas testify and tell the truth at their peril.
It will eclipse the scandal with which we are
presently faced.

PLP Senator Hope Strachan commented yes- |
terday that “Mrs Maynard Gibson is going to .
have to weigh in in order for us to determine

what the truth of what is being reported (about ©

her involvement) is.” Mrs Strachan said the
party has to “rely on the experience of our
leader (Perry Christie) first of all and also of our
National General Council in relation to any
kind of conduct which the party may deem to be
contrary to the good reputation of the party.”

We believe that Mr Christie is the only mem-
ber of that party who has the experience and
maturity to grasp the serious implications of
the kind of reputation the PLP will have if it is
perceived that anyone in that party is interfer-
ing with a witness in a police matter.

As for Mrs Gibson, she not only has a duty to
her client, but she has a duty as an officer of the
court to help the court discover the truth. It
will be a tragedy if that truth hurts a colleague.
However, it would be an even greater travesty
of justice if the PLP is seen to be burying the
truth te protect the party machine. Should this
happen, then not only will the PLP have no
reputation, but it would be a terrible and unfair
smear on the Bahamian people.

Those who were outside the court yester-
day jeering at Ms Bridgewater should also be
ashamed of themselves.

They are destroying this country’s image of
judicial fairness.

They must remember that under our jail
system every person brought before the Bar of
Justice is presumed innocent until proven guilty.
Ms Bridgewater is to be given her day in court
to present her side of the story. She is to be
tried by 12 of her peers, not an unruly, irra-
tional mob.

We recall the case of a PLP MP who was
sent to prison for three months in 1989 for
attempting to bribe a magistrate so that she
would release two of his constituents, charged
with peddling drugs.

The accused MP told Chief Justice Telford °

Georges that he was.sorry, he had made a “slip.”
An annoyed Chief Justice pointed out that
that was what was enone with whole approach
to the case.
_ “You've sent a message to so maniy people as
to what happens here. You have reinforced the
views that are held in so many places about
this country” and its corruption.
-“That isn’t-a slip,” the Chief Justice thun-
dered. “Don’t think of it as a slip. And in the
time that you spend up there, you know, under-
go a conversion of values.”

Many of those “influential” members of the
PLP who want to put Mrs Gibson before a kan-
garoo court should be sent up to HM Prison,
Fox Hill, for three months to sort out theirown
value system..It might do them and this country
some good.



Bahamas being
tarnished by
extortion case

EDITOR, The Tribune.

After listening to CNN this
morning and watching the ticker
tape on Fox News, tears ran down
my cheeks.

It was truly hard to listen as
The Bahamas was being spoken
of in such a degrading way.

What makes it even worse is
that some of the people who are

_ being named.-are actually law

makers.

What kind of message do you
think this is sending out to the
rest of the world?

Business in The Bahamas has
dropped tremendously, and this

gives reason for investors not to
do business in The Bahamas.

Hotels are laying off; cutting
back on working hours for staff
and in some cases, one.or two are
closing their doors.

What were these persons think-
ing of when they, if they in fact

did, made the decision to try to .

extort? Did they not see further
than their eyes could see?

The Bahamas Government
must take immediate steps to

punish the wrong doers if they
are found guilty, and to reassure
investors and visitors to The
Bahamas that it does not toler-
ate nor stand behind such hideous
acts, and that this is not “busi-
ness as usual in The Bahamas.”

What makes this even more
difficult is the fact that it hap-.
pened on Grand Bahama island.

An island which is already suf-
fering great financial difficulties
because of the decline in visitor
arrivals, etc.

EDITOR, The Tribune.

“Congratulations” to the PLP. Even in oppo-
sition they managed to make international head-
lines. Once again our country will be known '
abroad for the wrong reasons. They say that a
leopard can’t change its spots, and it seems that no
matter who its leader is or will be, the PLP will be

forever linked with corruption.

Its leaders, current and aspiring, claim that
they care about the poor and the average Bahami-

breaking and entering, US currency in closets,
and much more. «

Now accusations of attenipted: extortion have
been added. Or miaybe it was not added now, it

What you may not know about road works

EDITOR, The Tribune.

IT’S is not always obvious
why roads and speed bumps are
not dealt with right away.

While I cannot speak for the
authorities on the subject, I’ve
learned a few things recently.

Did you know that speed
bumps are not “generally” put

on main roads or major thor-—

ough fares?

Did you ever consider that
wherever speed bumps are
installed it means the slowing
down of emergency vehicles to
and from the area?

Another thing to consider is
that a general consensus is
apparently preferred from all
the residents in the area before
embarking on installing speed
bumps. It may appear to be an
obvious necessity to one resi-
dent, but many others may be
extremely opposed.

It may be a good idea to get
the opinion of your neighbours,
and maybe even do.a vote or
get signatures for or against
speed ‘bumps before requesting
them.

As far as the paving of roads
are concerned, it is the job of
each Ministry, to insure that all

point in paving the road today
and then having another corpo-
ration rip it up tomorrow to
deal with some other important
issue. There are times when the
Ministry of Works must. give

Last, but not least, what may
really seem obvious is that
everyone knows the road needs
to be fixed. Right?

So we just sit around and talk

about it, bad mouthing the gov-
ernment. Well, there are times
when we may be right, but what
about when we live in more
remote areas, or on dead-end
streets where traffic may not be

the government’s duty to inves-

today in the Magistrate’s
Court in connection with a
multiple stabbing incident
at the school this week.

The minors, aged 16 and

ward High School, where
three students were
stabbed.

FORMER Senator Pleasant
Bridgewater’s PLP colleagues in
the upper chamber yesterday said
that she is an experienced politi-
cian who will be missed in that
House, particularly as a voice for
Grand Bahama.

The senate met yesterday for the
first time without Ms Bridgewater
at around the same time as she was
being brought before the courts
to be arraigned on extortion
charges.

President of the Senate, Lynn
Holowesko, informed the senate
of Ms Bridgewater’s resignation —

which was tendered last Saturday:

after police brought charges against
her — and tabled Her letter of resig-
nation.

That letter, a short handwritten
note on an A4 sheet of loose-leaf
paper dated January 24, offered no
explanation for her decision
beyond that given in a statement
issued to the press on the same
date.

“Please accept this as my letter |

of resignation from the Senate with

‘immediate effect,” it said.

On Saturday, Ms Bridgewater
said she was quitting the upper
chamber to focus her attention on
fighting the legal battle ahead of
her.

Ms Bridgewater’s opposition
senate colleagues said that they

expect a new.senator to be appoint- '

ed to replace her by the next sitting

LOCAL NEWS

In brief PLP senators pay tribute to Bridgewater

of the upper chamber on Febru-
ary 12.

Senators Jerome Fitzgerald and
Hope Strachan said they foresee
another Grand Bahama resident,
who can give voice to that island’s
concerns, being chosen by opposi-
tion leader Perry Christie.

Mr Fitzgerald said that the party
is “somewhat saddened by the loss”
of Ms Bridgewater as a senator.

“Senator Bridgewater was a
valuable asset to the senate team in
opposition. Her views and concern

for Grand Bahama and the

Bahamas as a whole was always
welcomed when she made her con-
tribution, so from that standpoint I
think it’ll be a loss for us in the
Senate.

“We look forward, however, to
the appointment of a new senator
who we have no doubt will bring
the same level of enthusiasm and
concern for Grand Bahama and
forthe Bahamas,” he said.

Ms Strachan-said her prayers are.

with the former senator.

“T thank God that we still have a
democracy and that we have. a
country with a constitution where a
person is innocent until proven
guilty and I am trusting that the
judicial process will not only admin-
ister justice to her but that justice
would also be' seen to be done,

_because that is also important for

us as a country,” said the senator.
She too commended Ms Bridge-
water’s legacy as a senator, calling
her “perhaps the most experienced
senator in the chamber.” B

BTC confident of ‘comfortable cell-phone business share’

By LLOYD ALLEN
Tribune Staff Reporter
lallen@tribunemedia.net

BTC is confident that it will retain a “comfortable
share” of the cell-phone business after
the communications sector opens up to competition.

The privatisation of BTC is expected by. the end of
2009, and in order to take advantage of the fact that the
new owner will enjoy a monopoly on the industry for

at least a year, the company has already started an-

aggressive marketing campaign aimed at cell-phone

users.

Marlon Johnson, vice-president for marketing, sales

_ and business development, said: “All of us who are in
the company who recognise the fact that the market
will become more liberalised, have to prepare the
company for that process. That means that we have to
ensure that our service offerings are on par, that our
service quality is there, and that our prices and struc-
ture are suitable for a competitive environment.”

Mr Johnson said the company will continue to
enhance its services — but at the end of the day, the cus-
tomers will decide who they prefer when competition
enters the market. __

to make the best improvements, and if we pay attention
to customer care and provide attractive packages, I feel
confident that we will be able to hold our own and
maintain a comfortable share of the market,” he said.

One of the first new marketing initiatives by BTC
was launched in 2007, when the company reduced the
price of its SIM cards from $50 to $15.

Months later, during the summer of 2008, the com-
pany launched a campaign that offered an $8 credit on
any $20 GSM card purchase; $20 credit on a $50 card;

‘and $50 credit on a $100 card. .

- The company then initiated a nationwide GSM
upgrade project which focused on enhancing cellular
services, and also brought an end to the older TDMA
service.

With all of its cellular subscribers converted to the
GSM system, the company launched new initiatives
such as its “Internet on the go” service.

Since then, the company has eliminated service
charges on basic cellular options such as voicemail,
call waiting, caller-ID, and multiple party calling.

It has also signed an agreement with AT&T to per-
mit local cell-phone users access to the US telecom
giant’s network While travelling and convinced the

Public Utilities Commission to approve a request for

lower per minute cellular charges.

she always presented Grand
Bahama’s opinion as it relates to
various bills. She was always very
clear about her thoughts and the
direction she thought the country
should be going in, in terms of
Grand Bahama,” she said.

Mrs Holowesko said yesterday
was a “sad day for Pleasant Bridge-
water and for our country.”

She said she is unaware of a sit- :

a controversy of this magnitude. ERE O(e ULE

A HEARING on
whether justice campaign-

legal action has been

CHRISTIAN COUNCIL
president Rev Patrick Paul has
declared that capital punishment
should be carried out.

He noted that the practice is
on the law books, but said due-
process should run its course
before anyone is executed.

“The government represents
ministers of God. The Bible says
there should be a degree of fear
to those who seek to do evil and
it is the government’s responsi-
bility to instill a healthy fear in
the country,” Rev Paul said.

- “If you are pressed by other
countries or international bodies

to remove existing laws [from]
the books, you must remember
that you were elected by the
Bahamian people. Bring the
issues to the Bahamian people —
let them make the decisions,”
he said.

Speaking at the annual church

‘service for parliamentarians,

Rev Paul added however that
he does not believe it is fair for
any case to “go on for an infinite

or extended period” before it is

heard by a court.

“It is the government’s
responsibility to fix the system.
Do all that is in your power to
fix it until every case [is] heard
in a timely manner,” he said.

Rev Paul went on to say that
the Bahamas requires “bi-par-
tisan governance and a united
church” to manage the moral,
social and economic problems
it is facing.

He urged senators and mem-
bers of parliament to work
together for the betterment of
the country. ; é

“We live in a beautiful coun-
try and together we -must work
to make it better in the
Bahamas, despite the economic
downturn in the Bahamian
economy,” he said.

“As the government,

”

said

Christian Council president
defends capital punishment

Rev Paul, “you must ensure that
justice and fair play [are] admin-
istrated and carried out in every
aspect of your governance. This

includes adherence to labour |

laws and other laws that are on
the books of this self same pur-
pose. You must assure the
Bahamian people and the world
that due-diligence and due-
processes are carried out.”

Rev Paul advised the parlia-
mentarians that they must
strengthen the judiciary and
“see to it that the crime that is
committed meets its just
reward.” .

Parliamentarians were told
that before laws are passed and
final decisions are made on
national issues such as the legal-
isation of gambling, they should
ask themselves the question: “is
this going to reinforce our core
values or does this undermine
our core values?. -

“Every action has conse-
quences and we will give an

_account first to the Bahamian

people and then to the Almighty
God. Righteousness still exalts a
nation and sin is still a reproach
to any people.

“Let us do the righteous thing
and uphold that which is right,”
he said.

THE TRIBUNE





Bahamian
rotarians

are asked to
continue polio
drive support

BAHAMIAN rotarians
have been asked to contin- |
ue supporting a historic
drive to help polio victims.

In a message from
Rotary International presi-
dent Dong Kurn Lee and
Rotary Foundation chair-
man Jonathan Majiyagbe,
members of local Rotary
clubs were told their‘con-
tinued participation in the

‘fight against polio is

“vital”.

The message followed
the honouring of Rotary
International by philan-
thropist Bill Gates Jr at
Rotary's International
Assembly in San Diego,
California, USA.

Speaking to 2009-10 dis-
trict governors-elect, Mr
Gates congratulated
Rotarians on the success of
the partnership between
Rotary International and
the Bill and Melinda Gates
Foundation to raise funds
for polio.

To date, Rotarians have
already committed more
than $60 million toward
the $100 million Gates
Foundation challenge
grant awarded in Novem-
ber 2007.

In recognition of
Rotary's impressive
fundraising success and
steadfast commitment to
polio eradication, Mr

> Gates announced that his

foundation has decided to
increase its challenge grant
by $255 million —for a
total of $355 million.

By accepting the
increase, Rotary also »
accepts the challenge to

: raise an additional $100

million in matching funds
by 30 June 2012 and raises
the combined Rotary-
Gates Foundation commit-.
ment to a total of $555 mil-
lion. :

All of the resulting $555
million will be spent in
support of immunisation
activities carried out by the
Global Polio Eradication
Initiative in polio-affected
countries.

The initiative is spear-
headed by Rotary, the
World Health Organisa-
tion, the U.S. Centers for
Disease Control and Pre-
vention, and UNICEF.

In another development,
the United Kingdom's .
Department for Interna-
tional Development
pledged £100 million ($150

5 million) and the German

government is giving an
additional $130 million to

. the global initiative.

These contributions are ~
separate and will not count
toward Rotary's match of
the Gates Foundation
challenge grant.

’ The infusion of funds is
crucial if the world is to
finally be rid of polio, a
crippling, sometimes fatal
disease that poses the
highest risk to children.
Although the initiative has
reduced the number of
polio cases by 99 per cent
over the past two decades,
the wild poliovirus still
persists in four countries —
Afghanistan, India, Nige-
ria, and Pakistan — and
imported cases from these
endemic countries threat-
en other developing
nations.

ger as Bridgewater
escorted from court

FROM page one

She was met with angry
chants of "Put her in ‘the bus!
Put her in the bus!" and "'Cuff
her! Cuff her! Send her to jail!"
as the mob passed police barri-
cades and followed her towards
Central police station.

The chants sparked a bitter
outcry from her supporters, one
of whom clutched a yellow
pom-pom, and screamed "Ain'
none of us been there! Y'all
wrong fa dat! This ain' no PLP
or FNM ting ‘cause at the end of
the day Perry (Christie) and
(Hubert) Ingraham is sit to the
same table".

Another woman supporter
screamed, "That's why they put
her in front of the judge and
until they say she guilty far as I
concerned she's not guilty."

One long-time PLP support-
er, senior citizen Ceaserinia
Hepburn was brought to tears
by the crowd's "unfair" reac-
tion to Bridgewater.

’ Police quelled the row before
it escalated by directing the mob
behind barricades and onto Par-
liament Street. During the
arraignment, as the throng of
onlookers waited in Bank Lane,
ardent PLP and FNMs argued
over the political significance of
the case.

"Ingraham bring the Tra-

voltas here? Ingraham caused ~

his son to die? Ingraham caused
everything, hey!" an FNM
shouted as he taunted two per-
sons wearing yellow PLP T-
shirts.

They countered with: "We
need to get our country togeth-
er. PLP or FNM, we all live
here."

A number of PLP members,

including PLP MP for Michal, V
Alfred Gray, former Culture
Minister Neville Wisdom, for-
mer MP Keod Smith and
Yamacraw MP Melanie Griffin
were at yesterday's arraignment
in a show‘of solidarity.

port to Bridgewater. He said
she has remained "calm and col-
lected" throughout the ordeal.

Mr Wisdom hopes Bridge-
water emerges unscathed and
if vindicated, able to resume her
political career: "All well think-

_ing Bahamians hope that this

thing is resolved and that Ms
Bridgewater, who is a lovely
person, is able to come out of

. this unscathed. I'm not a lawyer,

I don't know the particulars of
the case, but as a PLP and a
friend of Pleasant I'm here to
stand with her."

Mrs Griffin described her for-
mer colleague as a woman of

‘integrity and character who

gave "great service" to Marco
City, her former constituency.
Bridgewater was arraigned,

of conspiracy to commit extor-

the charge of abetment to

Man shot dead Convicted murderer

in the year’s
sixth murder

FROM page one

scene after the shots were fired and investigations are now
underway.

Acting Police Commissioner Reginald Ferguson said that
although police are intensively investigating this latest mur-
der, there is nothing out-of-the-ordinary about the shooting
that happened just hours after another murder.

“The business of crime, especially homicides is a prolifer-
al matter. Sometimes it’s up, sometimes it’s down, our
response is the same, to go after it and try to solve it.
“While I would like to see no crime and no homicides, two
homicides in one night is not anything unusual per se.”

Mr Ferguson explained that a growing trend in violent ©

incidents has been identified, where disputes over,a female,

‘revenge, drug related, or unresolved matters are spawned -

into a deadly attack.

He said what has proven helpful is where police have
partnered with communities in organizing crime watch
groups, or recreation activities that build stronger relation-
ships.

With the crime count already at a concerning level for
the year, police are urging people in the community to report
incidents of crime, and to become more involved in restor-
ing calm to the country.

have the matter stayed.

Detailing the involvement of
Mr Pindling in the case, Mr
Turner explained: “Mr Pindling
was called as a witness in that
matter by the defence and was
cross-examined. With the state-
ments he (Mr Newbold) had
made to the police; which was
not challenged in the last~trial,
made references to Mr Pin-
dling.”

He said that although New-
bold did claim Mr Pindling’s
involvement in Ms Cartwright’s
death, it was only a claim from
an accused which held no
grounds in court. -

According to Tribune files, Mr
Pindling at the time was also
involved in a multi-million dollar
US indictment related to money
laundering.

Business Week, a weekly US
publication, claimed in its March
24, 1997, edition that Mr Pin-
dling played “a pivotal role” in
the 1994/95 scam that left SC

and T International’s stock
worth just pennies.

The 45-page federal indict-
ment linked the alleged scam to
the shooting death of Ms
Cartwright, who was said to be a
nominee of one of the compa-
nies set up by the lawyer.

Ms Cartwright’s murder was
referred to in the indictment.

' The publication claimed she was

killed “months after authorizing

. the transfer of $1.7 million from

an account in the name of a
Bahamian IBC to an account in
Hong Kong, as part of an appar-
ent attempt to embezzle funds
from American Mafia mem-
bers.”

However Mr Pindling has
denied any wrong doing, citing

he had only operated upon

instructions of a client to open
an account.

A Supreme Court jury in the
court of Mr Justice Ricardo
Marques, found Newbold guilty,
and sentenced him to death for
the brutal killing of Joyanne
Cartwright.

Ashley “Seymour” Newbold,

42, was charged with “being
involved with another” in that
1996 murder.

In a statement to the police,
later denied in unsworn testi-
mony in the court, Newbold
implicated Obie Pindling in Ms
Cartwright’s murder.

Although Newbold denied
dictating and signing ‘a statement
to police detailing events leading

up to Ms Cartwright’s death in
an unsworn statement from the -

prisoner’s dock, the jury made
its decision on the statement.

Newbold was first arraigned
and charged on December 21,
2001, for Ms Cartwright’s mur-
der, after the case was first inves-
tigated in 1996.

According to police reports,
Ms Cartwright was killed at her

_Sea Beach Estate home in west-

ern New Providence on Decem-
ber 26, 1996.

The cause of death was listed”

as gunshot wounds to the chest,
the abdomen, right forearm and
neck. She received massive

. Injuries to major organs, includ-

Police alleged that Newbold,
being concerned with another,
murdered the club manager.

Newbold died early yesterday
morning at Princess Margaret '
Hospital after receiving several
gunshot wounds.

Police reports indicated the
shooting of Newbold took place

late Tuesday night in the area

of Toote Shop Corner.

' Shortly after 11pm, police
received a call from a resident
that a man “apparently wound-
ed” was lying in ‘the street.

Upon their arrival, police dis-

covered Newbold ‘lying on the

side of the street with several

wounds. 'He had been left for

dead.

Newbold was still conscious
and ‘was able to provide them
with his name, mother’s name,
and contacts.

Receiving medical assistatice
from EMS personnel at the
scene, he was taken to the hos-
pital, but was pronounced dead
within minutes of his arrival.

hail for
former PLP

senator

FROM page one

Ms Bridgewater, wearing’ a
white skirt suit, was escorted
into’ court shortly before 10
am amidst screams from sup-
porters and detractors on the
outside. Minutes later, police
brought her co-accused, 47-
year-old paramedic Tarino
Lightbourne of Grand
Bahama to court.
Bridgewater, 49, of
Bevans Town, Grand
Bahama is accused of con-
spiring with Lightbourne
between January 2 and 20
of this year to commit
extortion. Ms Bridgewater
is also charged with abet-
ment to extort. It is
alleged that she purposely
facilitated in the attempt
to extort $25 million from
Hollywood actor John
Travolta. Lightbourne
was arraigned again on
_ the charge of attempted
extortion. Ms Bridgewater
is represented by Nassau
lawyer Murrio Ducille
and Lightbourne is repre-
sented lawyer Carlson
Shurland of Grand
Bahama:
Neither accused was
required to plead to the
charges. Lightbourne had
initially pleaded not
guilty to the charges while
Ms Bridgewater, who
announced her resigna-
tion from the Senate over
the weekend, has declared
her innocence and vowed
to fight the charges. Both
accused opted yesterday
to have their case tried in
the Supreme Court before
a judge and jury. The-
prosecution: did/not object,

to Ms Bridgewater being :




ted bail and Magis-

ie Carolita Bethel.set 4

at $50,000 with'two

slireties and no.reporting
conditions. After being
granted bail, Ms Bridge-
water was escorted by
police to Central Police
Station. Director. of Pub-
lic Prosecutions Bernard
‘Turper however objected
to, Lightbourne. being
granted bail; claiming that
he did not have.a fixed
address+ , -

‘During Lightbourne’s

bail hearing yesterday
afternoon, prosecutor —
Ambrose Brown raised
the same objection,
adding that Lightbourne
‘lived out of his vehicle.

. The prosecutor also told
the court that Light--

\

bourne. if réleased on bail |

might fail to appear in
court for trial and
obstruct the course of jus-
tice. The prosecutor said
that police had searched
Lightbourne’s vehicle and
matrimonial home at No.

for a “certain piece of evi-
dence” but with negative
results. Mr Brown told
- the court that Light-
bourne himself had con-
firmed the existence of

extent of Mrs Maynard Gib-
son’s involvement thus far in
the extortion case against Ms
Bridgewater “then it will obvi-
ously have ramifications for
the party.”

On Tuesday sources within
the party proposed that Mrs
Maynard Gibson — who was

‘revealed last weekend as the
attorney for Hollywood actor
John Travolta — could be
removed from the party. under
Article 13 of its constitution
which outlines how a member
can be suspended or expelled
for committing a “grave injus-
tice” against it.

Mrs Maynard Gibson, also
leader of the Opposition. in
the senate, has been listed as a
witness for the prosecution in
Ms Bridgewater’s trial on
charges of abetment to extort «
and conspiracy to extort mil-
lions of dollars from the Tra-
volta family in relation to the
death df their son, 16 year-old
Jett, on January 2. She will not
be involved in the litigation
process itself, however.

Responding to Ms Maynard
Gibson’s detractors outside
the upper chamber yesterday,
Ms Strachan said that “Mrs

Mr Fitzgerald said he would
be “very careful not to.rush

“Senator Gibson, of course,
is the leader of the Opposi-

“I’m sure at the end of the
day the facts will come to light
and we will all be able to.
make a more intelligent
assessment of what the situa;

get caught up in any rumours

said.

China's premier
sees eight percent
growth in ‘09

B DAVOS, Switzerland

‘CHINESE Premier Wen
Jiabao called Wednesday for
enhanced U.S.-China cooperation
to tackle the global financial crisis,
saying the meltdown has had a
“big impact” on his country but
would only slightly slow econom-
ic growth to 8 percent this year,
according to Associated Press.

_ Insharp contrast to the gloom
hanging over the annual gathering
of business leaders and politicians
at the annual World Economic
Forum, Wen was upbeat about
China’s prospects, saying he is
confident the country’s economy
will continue to grow fast, which
could help restore confidence in
global markets and stem the
financial crisis.

“We have the confidence, con-
ditions, and ability to maintain
steady and fast economic growth
and continue to contribute to
world economic growth,” he said
in his speech.

Wen conceded that “the cur-
rent crisis has inflicted a rather
big impact on China’s economy.”

“We are facing severe chal-
lenges, including notably shrinking
external demand, overcapacity in
some sectors, difficult conditions
for enterprises, rising unemploy-
ment in urban areas and greater
downward pressure on economic
growth,” he said.

While the Chinese economy
grew at 9 percent last year, it
slowed to 6.8 percent in the fourth
quarter, he said.

China announced a 4 trillion
yuan ($586 billion) plan in
November to boost domestic con-
sumption through higher spending
on construction and other pro-
jects, and Wen said he said seen
“small signs of recovery which
give me hope.”

senior boys bas-
ketball season
wares on, one of
the perennial pow-
erhouses in the league promises to
be one of the teams at the end of
the year positioned to make anoth-
er run at the championship title.

The C I Gibson Rattlers
advanced to a 7-3 record on the
2009 season with a 60-32 win over
the R M Bailey Pacers yesterday at
the D W Davis Gymnasium.

A lopsided 20-4 first quarter was
indicative of what. would come
over the course of the game as the
Rattlers cruised to the easy win. .

CI Gibson placed three players
in double figures led by versatile
post player Drew Rolle who fin-
ished with a game high 15 points.

Floor general Junior Denis fin-
ished with 10 points, his backcourt
mate Rashard Sturrup finished

with 14 while Rashad Ingraham

and Jermaine Hall chipped in with
seven and five points respective-
ly.

Rolle said his team knows they
have a coach with championship
pedigree in Kevin Johnson, and
they have full confidence in his
instructions night after night. “We
just went out there, listened to our

coach and what he wanted us to -

doing it,” he said. “We executed,
and played hard and we know
that’s what we have to continue to
do to do those things and to prove
to ourselves and other teams that
we are the best out there.”

Rolle said with his team in such

.a good flow on both the offensive

and defensive ends of the floor it
was easy for him to choose his
spots and fill the stat sheet.

“T just stayed around the rim
and tried to do better on the offen-

it was important that they com-

Serena crashes all-Russian semifinal

@ By DENNIS PASSA
AP Sports Writer

MELBOURNE, Australia
(AP) — Serena Williams
watched Svetlana Kuznetsova
stroll to the service line, getting
ready to serve for the match.

Failure to break would pre-
vent Williams, a three-time
Australian Open singles cham-

. pion, from having any chance
~ of picking up her coveted 10th
Grand Slam title.

So was Williams trying to fig-
ure out what Kuznetsova might
do with her first serve? Maybe
thinking about whether to stay

. back and slug it out or try to
pressure the Russian by rush-
ing the net?

Nope.

She was looking for motiva-
tion, and she found it by imag-
ining what it would be like to
make the long flight across the
Pacific to the United States as a
quarterfinal loser.

sible, with a lot of time to fume

LONDON (AP) — Aus-
tralian Open semifinalist Sere-
na Williams and her sister
Venus were hot part of the US
roster submitted Wednesday to
face Argentina in the first round
of the Fed Cup next month.

Without Serena Williams,

tain Mary Joe Fernandez select-
ed Fed Cup rookie Bethanie
Mattek, Jill Craybas, Melanie
Oudin and Liezel Huber for the

prise, Ariz.

The United States, which last
won the Fed Cup in. 2000, will
take on Argentina's Gisela
Dulko, Betina Jozami, Soledad
Esperon and Aranza Salut.

. Dementieva was the only one
of three Russians who reached
the Australian Open semifinals
picked to play for the defending
champions. She will be joined

Dinara Safina and Vera

champion Maria Sharapova is

Kuznetsova and Zvonareva
teamed with Ekaterina Makaro-

Spain 4-0 in last year's final.

China will counter with 2008
Wimbledon semifinalist Zheng

Also in the World Group,
France hosts Italy on outdoor
hard courts in Orleans, and the
Czech Republic hosts Spain on
indoor carpet in Brno.

French veteran Amelie Mau-~

_ with 16th-ranked Alize Cornet,

Nathalie Dechy and Severine
Bremond against Italy's
Francesca Schiavone, Flavia

Roberta Vinci.

Marion Bartoli, who upset

over a missed opportunity.

"I was thinking, 'OK, if you
lose, you're going to fly coach
all the way back to Florida, how
uncomfortable that would be?'
" Williams said, laughing. "That
motivajed me to do a little bet-
ter.

"I wouldn't allow myself to
have the emergency row either.
I would be so mad, I would
have to sit like (in) the last row,
the tightest row. That way I

‘wouldn't do it again."

No worries. Williams broke
Kuznetsova's service, evened
the set at 5-5, broke a game lat-

er and went on to a‘5-7, 7-5, 6-1

win, ;

She can keep her business-
or first-class ticket for at least
another day — at least until she
plays Elena Dementieva in

. Thursday's semifinal.

Dementieva advanced to the
semis with a 6-2, 6-2 win over
Carla Suarez Navarro in the
other quarterfinal. The unseed-
ed Suarez Navarro beat Sere-
na's sister Venus in the second

top-ranked Jelena Jankovic at

-the Australian Open, was left

off France's team because the
17th-ranked player insists on
having her father, who coaches
her, present at Fed Cup training
sessions. The French team
requires its players to practice
under Fed Cup trainer Alexia
Dechaume-Balleret.

"I think things could change,

and I hope they do so favor-

ably," France captain Nicolas
Escude said.

_ Spain will be represented by
Australian Open quarterfinal-
ist Carla Suarez Navarro, Nuria
Llagostera Vives, Maria-Jose
Martinez Sanchez and Lourdes
Dominguez-Lino in the Czech
Republic against Iveta Beneso-
va, Petra Kvitova, Lucie Safaro-
va and Kveta Peschke.

In World Group II, Jankovic
and Ana Ivanovic will play for
Serbia on hard indoor courts
against Japan in Belgrade.

Also in second-tier competi-
tion, it's Slovakia against Bel-
gium, Switzerland against Ger-
many and Ukraine against

Navarro in the first match at
the main show court with the
roof open and the temperatures
just about as hot as when
Williams played. Dementieva,
the Beijing Olympic gold medal
winner, wondered why there
seemed to be a different set of
ground rules for the two match-
es.

"It looks like nobody really
knows how it works here,"
Dementieva said of the heat
policy. "I think when it's 40 (104
degrees) and over you have to
close the roof. But saying that in

“

~ our match, it was like 39 and a

half, well, I don't know. When
you're on the court it feels like
45..."

. Kuznetsova felt the same
way, particularly after she won
the first set with the roof open,
and lost the next two with it
closed.

"It's two different games, one
you play_inside; one you play
outside," Kuznetsova said. "She
has a big serve, and she was
using it very well when the roof
was closed. It was in her favor
very much."

Players should get equal opportunity
to make national softball teams —

WHILE’ best wishes are”

extended to Frankie “Cinder-
alla” Sweeting as he continues
to recuperate after surgery, we

offer our condolences to the -
family of the late Hugh “Meat-.

man” Bethell.

While both men would have
excelled on the baseball dia-
mond well ahead of my time in

journalism, I was able to once

again rely-on former sports
writer Godfrey “Goofy” Brown
for his recollection. .
Celebrating his 55th birthday
yesterday, Brown reminded me

that sports was going through °

another period of reflection as
another sporting icon, base-
ball/basketball extraordinaire
Vincent Ferguson was mourn-

ing the death of his beloved

mother.

And this Sunday, the sporting
community will also come
together again to pay their last
respects to the late boxer
turned historian Chris Malakius
as his funeral is set for 1pm at
St Agnes Anglican Church.

We all know that sickness
and death are two things that
are inevitable. We all must face
them one day or the other. So

once we have life, we need'to :

cherish each day as if it is our
last.

Tuesday, Bethell spent his
last day on-earth before he died
at Princess Margaret Hospital
around midnight. The 64-year-

_old was suffering from diabetes.

He left behind his wife, Marion,
and three daughters and three
sons, including bodybuilders
Aaron and Kenny Green.

Brad, Trevor and the late Jef-

‘Like I said, I didn't know. of

’ his baseball exploits, but Brown

noted that Bethell certainly
made his mark onthe field:
"People might say he had a
. temper, but that was the nature
of him whenever-he walked out
or trod out on the field," he
pointed out.

"While he might: have

appeared to some to be hot

was another person.

He was quiet, humble and

SOFTBALL NATIONAL
TEAM

THIS week, the Bahamas
Softball Federation also
released the names of more.
than 50 men and 40 women.
who have. been invited to tryout

:. for the national teams heading

to a series of international tour-
naments during the summer. '
The list is made'up-of a good
mixture.of youth and experi-
enced players, which federation

. first vice president Burkett

Dorsétt indicated is the best
collaboration of athletes, rep-
resenting just about every affil-
iated island association as they
try to come up with the best
team possible 'to represent the’
country.

“The major step for the feder-
ation is to convince:all of the

players on the list that they

would have a fair chance of
making the team and that the
selection is not, just based on
those players who would have
had a little more-exposure than
some of the others. _

If it's truly going to be a
national team, then all of the
players, regardless of what
island they come from, should
be given an equal opportunity
to.make the team. One. of the
ways in'which the federation
can accomplish this is by ensur-.
ing that all of the players go
through the same type of selec-
tion process at the same time. .

It might sound a bit costly for
the federation, but if they are
going to live by. the true mean-

. ing‘of ‘national, then they will

have to find a way to.bring all
of. the :players. under. one
“umbrella for the. tryout selec-
-tion at.the same time...’ *

They. have selected sufficient
“coaches, whom, I assume will





‘ers or outfielders. I: think: it
would bé-a: ‘good sight to see all





together in .the same. ‘atmos-
phere.) 205° 88
There's: no- ieubt that
“Because-of thé Exposure they've
received, the players in New
‘- Providence will.once again fill
up the bulk of the spaces on
the team. But let us insist that
‘the Family Islands are put ina
position where they can chal-
lenge for any and all of the
spots available on:the team...
I think this should be the
trend that is passed down.to all
of the other federations when-
ever they are selecting their
national teams. Every player.
should.be given. an equal



: opportunity regardless of what

island in our archipelago they
come from.

BEIJING

China welcomed the arrival -

Monday of the Year of the Ox
with fireworks-filled celebra-
tions, but the country's eco-
nomic worries have already cast
the new year in amore sober
light, according to the Associat-
ed Press.

Millions of Chinese gave a
boisterous farewell to a tumul-
uous 2008 marked by a mas-
sive earthquake, the Olympics
and a global economic crisis.

But in a somber Lunar New
Year greeting, China's finance
minister warned that balancing
the budget this year would be
increasingly difficult, the offi-
cial Xinhua News Agency
reported.

Xie Xuren described exter-
nal and internal factors affecting
China’ s development as "very
severe" and said more difficul-
ties had to be overcome to
achieve steady and relatively

fast economic growth,-according .

to a statement posted on the
ministry's Web site.

He urged officials‘to’avoid
unnecessary spending this year,

with local governments ordered

to curtail car purchases, cater-
ing, meetings and overseas trav-
él.’ *

The Chinese New Year,
which marks the start of the
Spring Festival, is the country's
most important holiday. It is
generally celebrated with lav-
ish spending on elaborate meals
and exchanges of "hong bao,"
or red envelopes stuffed with
money.

‘ But at the capital's legendary
Quanjude Peking Duck Restau-
rant, marketing manager Yang
Jing said the financial downturn
is already having an effect on
traditional feasting. ,

"People are feeling it's hard-
er to make. money in the eco-

nomic crisis, so now the cus-
tomers are more picky about
details like food quality and
prices. It's not that easy to take
even one penny out of their
pockets," Yang said.

The country's economic out-
look for 2009 has been damp-
ened by the deepening global
financial crisis, with China's

2008 annual growth down to a

seven-year low of nine per cent.
Thousands of factories have
closed in China's export-driven
southeast, and estimates of job
losses exceed two million.”
Commiunist leaders have wor-
ried publicly about rising ten-
sions.and possible unrest as laid-
off workers stream back to their
hometowns. They have

‘ promised to create new jobs and

are pressing employers to avoid
more layoffs.

The State Council, China's
Cabinet, announced measures
Sunday to help college gradu-
ates find jobs, pledging to train
1 million unemployed gradu-
ates over the next three years to
boost their qualifications.

Despite the grim forecast for

the new year, merchants in the

capital said fireworks sales were
up 28 per cent from last year,
with some 230;000 fireworks

_packages sold by Sunday, Xin-

hua reported.

Meanwhile, a quirky chal-
lenge to state television's flashy
Lunar New Year gala was
dropped by Web sites and end-
ed up only being broadcast by a

satellite station-with limited cov- .

erage in China, the show's orga-
nizer said. Shi Mengqi had
designed his show — which was
to feature human beatbox rap-
pers and bicycle stunts — as a
grass-roots, laid-back alterna-
tive to its propaganda‘laden
competition.

Shi, a wedding planner who
produces his own online TV
shows, said he was in talks with
eight or nine Chinese Web sites
to broadcast his New Year show
on Sunday night, but all of them
backed out, claiming they were
warned not to carry the pro-
gram. He declined to identify
the Web sites and said he didn't
know who warned them.

‘andit was.a mix or romanticism.
with modernism,” the Ukrain-’

has a Spanish feel. It drew on all
the designer’s signature ele-

to polka-dot prints to heavy
brocade and matador costumes.

“Tt’s the flowers, the summer,

The AP in a backstage inter-
view. “I take those elements,

- which have been there since my

very first collection, and try to
update them.”

Tufts of crinoline and ornate
appliqués added a baroque
touch to short cocktail dresses
in a rainbow of saturated col-

Lacroix borrowed from the
wardrobe of Arles’ matadors,
adding toreador touches to
much of the collection. A red
sash punctuated a gorgeous ruf-

Even the bride, who was
swathed in layers of ivory tulle,
wore a matador’s jacket in baby

Airy goddess gowns in pastel
hues were given a S&M kick by

patent-leather straps that »

French actress Emmanuelle
Seigner said her favorite look
was a series of dresses made out
of elastic bands draped in ivory
lace:—“‘like ‘a*chic mummy

’ Asked whether she thought
the dresses, which left little to
the imagination, were wearable,
Seigner replied “but of course,”
with a saucy smile. j

less evening gowns which, tight

through the bust and torso, flared -

out into kicky mermaid tails.

@ BELEM, Brazil

SOME 100,000 activists of all
stripes converged on this steamy
-Amazon city Tuesday, opening
the World Social Forum with a
rambunctious march to the beat
of samba drums.

An afternoon jungle down-
pour could not drown the spirits
of those who came from all cor-
ners of the globe to participate:

Socialists, environmentalists, -
anarchists, Indians, communists °

and even a fellow dressed as a
pirate, according to the Associ-
ated Press.
The massive meeting — com-
ing amid the worst global eco-
nomic crisis in decades — was
held:for the first time in the
Amazon region, an especially
poignant fact for attendees.

“During a financial crisis, the,

environment is the first thing to

be pushed off the agenda of |

most governments,” said
Andrew Riplinger, 22, of Chica-
go. “I think having the social

forum here in Belem, sur-'

rounded by the rain forest —

INTERNATIONAL NEWS



it’s keeping environmentalism
on the table.”

The streets of Belem were
overflowed — by both water
and the activists, who came
wearing. homemade shirts
extolling every social cause
under the sun. Massive banners

were unfurled, trumpets blared °
‘a chaotic chorus as Indians from

across the Amazon performed
traditional dances, barefoot,
bodies ornately painted and
heads adorned with the feathers
of exotic birds.

Local fire officials and media
estimated that 100,000 people
were in Belem for the ninth
World Social Forum and 50,000
took part in the march.

“T'm here to fight for land,
health and education,” said one
parading Indian, an older man
who gave his name only as
Miguel,

Atteidees see this year’s
forum as: more vital than ever,
with participants saying the
world’s economic crisis gave
legitimacy to their demands for
alternative development mod-

els. The celebration in the Ama-
zon was geographically halt a
world away — and ideological-
ly on another planet — from
the World Economic Forum in
Davos, Switzerland, where a
dour mood anda decidedly

slimmer list of global luminaries

was expected to prevail.

The social forum was first
held in 2001 in southern Brazil
as a direct response to that eco-
nomic meeting in Europe.

Standing on the deck of the

’ Greenpeace ship Arctic Sun-

rise, docked in Belem, the envi-
ronmental group’s top Amazon
campaigner Paulo Adario said
this year’s social forum was
being held in the perfect locale.

“The destruction of the Ama-
zon is being propelled by the
globalization of the Brazilian

economy — cattle and soy for

export,” he said.
“Socio-economic problems

and the environment aré ‘inter-'""

connected. That is why it is very
important to have the forum
here, so we can highlight both
issues.”

~ Canada’s government
announces stimulus package

mg OTTAWA

*

~ CANADA’S Conservative
government unveiled a $32 bil-
lion plan to stimulate the flag-
ging economy Tuesday, a move
that could stave off opposition
threats to force Prime Minister
Stephen Harper from office,
according to the Associated
Press.

Finance Minister Jim Flaher-
ty said the stimulus package
includes $9.8 million for infra-
structure over the next two
years. Flaherty is predicting a
deficit in Canada for the first
time in more than a decade.
~ New Liberal Party leader
Michael Ignatieff said he’ll
announce Wednesday whether
he’ll support the package. The
opposition Liberals had vowed
to use a parliamentary confi-
dence vote to topple Harper’s
minority government if the
stimulus plan fell short.

“There are some positive

signs to this budget,” Ignatieff
said, “There’s some things that
we are concerned about.
There’s a negative side.”

The credit crisis and the glob-
al sell-off of commodities have
started to hit Canada hard. The
country lost more than 100,000
jobs in the last two months of
2008, and the central bank is
predicting economic output will
contract 4.8 percent in the first
quarter.

Flaherty called the crisis “the
challenge of our time.”

“Canadians are feeling the
effects of the global recession,
and they are concerned,” he
said. .

The government is providing
money for bridges and high-
ways, high-speed Internet net-
works and home retrofits. The
government also lengthened the
amount of time unemployed
people will be able to collect
insurance if they are laid off.

The government has also said

the goals of the stimulus include
protecting the financial system
and ensuring access to credit. It
also promised help for the poor,
the aboriginal population and
struggling industries such as the
auto sector and forestry.

The opposition parties, which
hold a majority of seats in Par-
liament, united against Harper
late last year after he

- announced a plan to scrap gov-

ernment subsidies for political
parties, something the opposi-
tion groups rely on far more
than the Conservatives to. pay
for campaigns and staff salaries.

Although Harper withdrew
the proposal, the opposition
continued to seek his ouster,
arguing he had no economic
stimulus plan to protect Canada
from the global financial crisis.

Harper only avoided defeat
last month by shutting down
Parliament — an unprecedent-
ed tactic that allowed him to

In brief

Facebook nixes
group seeking
Morales
liquidation’

HBOGOTA, Colombia

THE social-networking
site Facebook removed a
group on Tuesday whose
title advocated raising mon-
ey so a gunman could be
hired to “liquidate” Bolivi-
a’s leftist president, Evo
Morales, according to the
Associated Press.

The Spanish-language
group, created in August,
had 8,069 members and had
drawn the attention of at
least one outraged blogger
as of Tuesday, when The
Associated Press alerted
Facebook about it.

Called “Global collection

to hire a sharpshooter to liq- :

uidate Evo Morales,” the
group’s first description line
stated, “We need to get the
money to inspire someone
to do it.”

Its 20-year-old Bolivian
creator, Hony Pierola,
denied any malice. He told
the AP he started the group
“to laugh a little and would-
n’t be so stupid as to do it
with serious intentions.”

However, many of the
group’s 497 postings were
hateful, violating Face-
book’s terms of use, which
ban threatening violence or
expressing hatred..

One posting, dated Aug.
10, suggested Morales be
“tortured and made to suf- |
fer, like he’s doing indirectly
to many Bolivian people.”
The vast majority of group
members were well under
30, based on the birthdates
and photos they posted.

The first Indian president
of South America’s poorest .
country, Morales has been a
divisive figure as he drives a
socialist agenda. On Sun-
day, Bolivia’s voters
approved a new constitution
that. seeks to empower the
country’s long-suppressed

‘Tnidian majority.

A Facebook. spokes-
woman, Jaime Schopflin,
said Pierola’s group clearly
violated the company’s
terms of use,.and that the
site was removed within 90
minutes of AP’s call. She
said she did not know
whether anyone had previ-
ously alerted the 700-
employee company to its
existence.

Schopflin acknowledged
the challenge of enforcing
user terms amid skyrocket-
ing growth; Facebook’s
users have more than dou-
bled over the past year to
150 million, most outside
the United States. ©

- “We do have a multilin-
gual staff. We are trying to
scale right now,” she said by
telephone from the 5-year-
old company’s headquarters
in Palo Alto, California.
“These things, once they are
reported, we remove them
immediately.”

The accounts of repeat .
violators are disabled,
Schopflin added. Pierola’s
account remained active
“Tuesday. ‘

In an e-mail exchange,
Pierola was unapologetic
and made clear his deep dis-
taste for Morales, telling the :
AP that “in my honest opin-
ion as a human IJ think it’s
not his fault he’s such an
imbecile.”

“Lhope he doesn’t do stu-
pid things and that Bolivia
doesn’t turn into a commu-
nist state,” he said.

THE INTERIM leader of
the Russian Orthodox Church,
seen as a modernizer who could
seek a historic reconciliation
with the Vatican and more
autonomy from the state, was
overwhelmingly elected patri-
arch Tuesday, according to the
Associated Press.

Metropolitan Kirill received

508 of the 700 votes cast during
an all-day church congress in
Moscow’s ornate Christ the
Savior Cathedral, the head of
the commission responsible for
the election, Metropolitan
Isidor, said hours after the
secret ballot was over.

Kirill defeated a conservative
rival, Metropolitan Kliment,
who received 169 votes, Isidor
said. Another 23 ballots were
declared invalid,

It was the first vote for a
Russian Orthodox patriarch
since the fall of the officially

. atheist Soviet Union in 1991.

Kirill, 62, will be installed

Sunday as the successor to

Moscow Patriarch Alexy II,
who had headed Russia’s dom-
inant church since 1990. Alexy
II died Dec. 5, at age 79, after
leading the church in a power-
ful post-Soviet revival.

The son of a priest, Kirill has
headed the external relations
department of the world’s
largest Orthodox Christian
church for nearly 20 years,
making him point man for ties
with the Roman Catholic
Church. He met with Pope
Benedict XVI in December
2007.

Catholic missionary activity on
its traditional territory and dis-
putes over property and influ-
ence in Ukraine.

Kirill has echoed Alexy’s
warnings that those disagree-
ments remain obstacles to a
long-awaited meeting between
pope and patriarch — the unre-
alized dream of the late Pope
John Paul H. But he has also
promoted unity with the Roman
Catholic Church against the sec-

- ularism and immorality he says

threatens humanity.

The Vatican “rejoiced” over
Kirill’s election, said ‘its
spokesman, the Rev. Federico
Lombardi. He said Kirill was
esteemed in the Vatican and
expressed hope his service
would “continue to deepen our
path of reciprocal understand-

-ing and collaboration for the

good of humanity.”

In Russia, Kirill is seen as a
politically savvy figure who may
seek a more muscular role for
the church, which has served
the state for much of its 1,000-
year history. Church and state
are officially separate under the
post-Soviet constitution, but ties
have tightened again since
Vladimir Putin came to power
in 2000.

Kirill will face opposition
from a strong conservative
movement within the church
that sees him as too modern and
too eager for a rapprochement
with Catholics.

“He’s perfectly aware of the
risks he will be taking,” political
analyst Stanislav Belkovsky
said. Regarding ties with the
Vatican, Belkovsky said, “He
will go for it if he feels the
moment has come, but he won’t
fast-track it.” ce nind

Opening lead — queen of hearts.

Every declarer occasionally runs
into an unlucky distribution which,
as the cards lic, appears to make the
contract hopeless. But sometimes
what seems an-impossible task may
turn out tobe manageable afer all.

Take this case Where South got to
four spades and West led a heart.
Declarer won with dummy’s king
and cashed the trump ace, on which
East) unexpectedly showed out.
Undaunted, and for want of anything
better to do, South next led a low dia-
mond to his nine.

West won with the ten and shifted

to his singleton club, taken by
dummy’s ace. A second diamond lost
to East’s jack, and a heart was
returned. Declarer won with the ace,
ruffed a heart and ruffed a diamond.
He then cashed the Q-K of trumps,
producing this position with South
on lead needing two more tricks to
make the contract:

North

Superficially, it might scem that
declarer must lose a spade and a

~ club, but when South now led a club,

the second loser disappeared.

If West ruffed, that would be the
last trick his side could score. If West
discarded a heart instead, declarer
would win the club with the king and
ruff a diamond to produce his 10th
trick. And if West discarded the ace
of diamonds, declarer would take the
club king and lead the established
queen of diamonds, discarding his
remaining club and again finishing
with 10 tricks,

Whatever West did, South could
not be stopped from. scoring two
more tricks to make his contract.

US j ion history preserved on Angel Island

li By TERENCE CHEA
ANGEL ISLAND, STATE PARK,
CALIFORNIA

The Angel Island Immigration Sta-

tion, once known as the "Ellis Island of

the West," is reopening after a multi-
million-dollar restoration of the histor-
ical landmark aimed at showing visitors
a chapter of American history that many
would rather forget, according to the
Associated Press.

Hundreds of thousands of immigrants,
mostly from Asia, were detained on the
largest island in San Francisco Bay for
days,-weeks and sometimes months in
the three decades before World War II.

They were housed in crowded, dingy
barracks while undergoing humiliating
medical exams and grueling interroga-
tions administered by officials intent on
upholding federal laws restricting immi-
gration from China and elsewhere.

"Angel Island is a commentary on the
kind of racist thinking that really impact-

ed how people from Asia were treat-

ed," said Eddie Wong, executive direc-
tor of the Angel Island Immigration Sta-
tion Foundation. "To correct those



errors for other people, not just Asians,
it's important to know that history."
Nearly seven decades after it closed,
the station is set to reopen in mid-Feb-
ruary following completion of the first
phase of a $60 million restoration project

that was started in 2005. The initial work ‘

has focused on restoring the, barracks,
where many immigrants carved poems
into the wooden walls.

The station was built on Angel Island,
a short boat ride from San Francisco,
to help enforce the Chinese Exclusion
Act of 1882 and other laws aimed at

curbing immigration at a time when .

Americans were worried -about immi-
grants stealing jobs and depressing
wages.

From 1910-to 1940, about 1 million

immigrants from some 90 countries —

including an estimated 175,000 from
China — were processed at Angel
Island.

Some passed through fairly quickly,
but many Chinese immigrants were
detained for up to two years while inmi-
gration officials questioned their legal
status.

Don Lee was 11 years old when he

I>ft his rural village in China's Guang-
dong Province to join his father in
America in 1939. After three weeks
crossing the Pacific in the steerage deck
of a steamship, he was held for a month
on Angel Island.

"The whole place is really congested
and full of strangers, so I was more
scared than.anything else," Lee, 81, said
during a recent visit to the renovated
barracks.

The retired civil engineer remembers
long interrogation sessions in which
inspectors asked him detailed questions
about his family, home, village and
neighbors in China.

"They're not there to welcome you.
They're really. there to discourage you.
It's up to them to bounce you," said
Lee, who now lives in Concord, about 30
miles east of San Francisco.

The station was closed in 1940 after
fire destroyed the main administration
building. Then it was used to process
German and Japanese war prisoners
curing World War II, when the U.S.
repealed the Chinese Exclusion Act
because China and the U.S. had become
allies.

The island became a state park in
1954, and until the restoration project
began in 2005 about 200,000 people vis-
ited the station each year even though
they could only see a small section of the
barracks.

Now visitors can tour the entire two-
story facility, including several rooms
furnished with suitcases, clothes, books,
games and other items from the peri-
od. "We're trying to create as accurate
of an experience for the visitor so they

‘can.see what it was actually like to be

detained here," said Katherine Metraux,
a museum curator with the state Depatt-
ment of Parks and Recreation.

The abandoned barracks had been
scheduled to be torn down in 1970, when
a park ranger rediscovered the Chinese
poems — many covered by paint — that
conveyed-the sadness, anger and loneli-
ness of being held captive on the island.

One poem reads: "Imprisoned in the

wooden building day after day, My free-

dom is withheld; how can I bear to talk
about it?

"I look to see who is happy but they
only sit quietly, I am anxious and

‘depressed and cannot fall asleep."

More than 100 Saudis repatriated
from Guantanamo Bay naval base

@ By ANDREW O SELSKY
Associated Press Writer

SAN JUAN, Puerto Rico
(AP) — The re-emergence of
two former Guantanamo Bay
prisoners as al-Qaida terrorists
in the past week won't likely
change US policy on transfers
to Saudi Arabia, the Pentagon
said Monday.

More than 100 Saudis have ;
been repatriated from the U.S.
military's prison at Guan-
tanamo Bay, Cuba, to Saudi
Arabia, where the government .
‘puts them through a rehabilita-
tion programme designed to
encourage them to abandon
Islamic extremism and reinte-
grate into civilian life.

The oniiné boasts by two of
these men that they have joined
al-Qaida in Yemen underscore
that the Saudi system isn't fail
safe, the Pentagon said. A US ©
counterterrorism official in
Washington confirmed the men
had been Guantanamo
detainees. The official spoke on |
condition of anonymity because
he was not authorized to dis-
close that fact on the record.

Another two or three Saudis
who had been transferred from
Guantanamo cannot be locat-
ed by the Saudi government,
said Christopher Boucek, a
researcher at the Carnegie
Endowment for International
Peace.

Navy Cmdr. Jeffrey Gordon,
a Pentagon spokesman, said the
US sees the. Saudi programme
as admirable.

"The best you can do is work
with partner nations in the
international community to
ensure that they take the steps
to mitigate the threat, ex-
detainees pose," he said. "There
are never any absolute guaran-
tees. There's an inherent risk in
all detainee transfers and releas-
es from Guantanamo."

The deprogramming effort —
built on reason, enticements
and lengthy talks with psychia-
trists, Muslim clerics and soci-
ologists — is part of a concerted
Saudi government effort to

counter the ideology that nur- -

tured the 9/11 hijackers and that '
has lured hundreds of Saudis to
join the Iraq insurgency. Fifteen

the United States on Septem-
ber 11, 2001, were Saudis, as is
the mastermind of the attacks,
Osama bin Laden..

A total of 218 men, including
former Guantanamo detainees,
have gone through the reinte-
gration programme, according
to the Saudi Ministry of Interi-
or. Nine were later arrested
again, an "official source" at the
ministry said in a dispatch from
the official Saudi Press Agency.
The report said some of the
nine were former detainees, but
did not give a breakdown.

The Saudi Interior Ministry

official said most of the gradu-

ates "resumed their natural lives
and some of them voluntarily
contributed to the activities of
this programme to help others
return to natural life."

Frank Ciluffo, a researcher
on security issues at George
Washington University, said a
programme that doesn't work
all the time is better than none
because the alternative is an
extended prison sentence, which
only further radicalizes a per-
son.

"I think that just fuels and
gives legitimate grievances to.
the adversary which stick,"
Ciluffo said. He said Singapore,
Indonesia and Yemen have pro-
grammes too, but Yemen's was
suspended for lack of funds.

The two men who went

‘through the Saudi rehabilita-

tion programme and resurfaced
in Yemen were seen in video
clips posted on the Internet last ”
week.

One man gave his name as
Abu al-Hareth Muhammad al-
Oufi, whose prisoner number
when he was held by the US
was 333.

According to documents
released last year, the detainee
claimed he was twice beaten by
Americans, after he was cap-
tured in Pakistan in 2001 and
was being flown to Afghanistan,
and again’after he landed at the
Bagram detention center in
Afghanistan: ”

The other former detainee
said their detention by US
forces only hardened them.

"By Allah, imprisonment
only increased our persistence
in our principles for which we
went out, did jihad for, and
were imprisoned for," said Said
Ali al-Shihri, whose prisoner
number was 372.

The interior ministry official
said the two former: detainees
have made things more difficult
for Saudis who remain at Guan-
tanamo. Those who join
extremist causes after they are
released "reduce the chance of
the return of the rest of the
detainees whose families are
waiting for them and (are) look-
ing forward to their return
home," the official said, accord-
ing to the Saudi Press Agency.

About 22 Saudis are among
the 145 men still locked up at
Guantanamo, according to a
study by the Brookings Institu-

tion, a think tank in Washing-
ton. The largest group of
remaining prisoners is from
Yemen. :

More than 500 men have
been freed from Guantanamo.
Gordon said a total of 62 are
"confirmed or suspected" of
involvement in "terrorist activ-
ities." The Pentagon has not
identified these former
detainees, and has not said how
it defines terrorist activities, oth-
er than excluding actions like
engaging in propaganda.

"The names and identities of
these former detainees will not
be released at this time, due to
the need to protect our sources
and methods of gathering this
information," Gordon said.

Last year at this time 1 was diagnosed with Acute
Promyelocytic Leukemia. | have been through a journey
no child should go through. | always had great health and
was active in equestrian riding, soccer and dance until last

ear. | began to feel tired, sick, lost my appetite. My joints

egan to hurt. | had ongoing mouth infections from my
braces. My orthodontist office said | wasn’t brushing my
teeth properly, how wrong was he! My mom took me to the
doctor who thought my symptoms were from my mouth
infections. | then came back from a school field trip and

‘developed cellulites in my thigh from a bug bite. My mom

again took me to the doctor who agreed with my mom that
| needed a blood test as they thought | was getting too run

down. The results from that test changed my life. | had very

low hemoglobin, platelets and white blood cells counts;
everyone was so surprised | was even walking. | immediately

was hospitalized and received two units of blood. My parents °

were informed that | was receiving blood that was not
irradiated bit if | didn’t receive it | may die. My parents were
told | probably had aplastic anemia but they would need to
do a bone marrow check to conclude. At this point my
parents decided to move me to another hospital as soon
as | was stable enough to fly. .

Lucky for me | was able to go to Toronto, Canada to the
Hospital for Sick Children as | am Canadian/Bahamian. This
hospital is the most amazing place with the most amazing
doctors. My oncologist there is Dr. Sarah Alexander and
she saved my life. The night I landed | was diagnosed based
on my blood that | had APML which was later supported by
a bone marrow aspirate. Over the next six months there
were times | felt so weak | could hardly get out of bed; | was
sO nauseous and had so many mouth sores because | had
mucucitious from the chemo. | lost my hair. | had more
procedures and blood tests. | had lumbar punctures where
they inserted medicine into my spine to make sure the cancer
was not in my spinal fluid and sometimes had the worst
headaches afterwards! | asked God many times why me....!
missed my school, my friends, my horse, my dogs, why
me..... I just wanted to get better and come back to the
Bahamas. You know what...with my doctor’s help | did just
that. She got'me through my protocol and made sure | was
well enough to come back and begin school with all my
friends in September. The day | stepped on the plane to
come back home was one of the best days of my life. | will
ith sere all her efforts and everyone’s at Sick Kids
jospital.

Through it all | had the best support from all my family who
took good care of,me both in and out of the hospital. My
mom never left my side and my aunt (a retired pediatric
nurse) was with me along with the rest of my family in Canada
(my brother, father, uncle’s, aunts, my grandmother, ) always
visited me and called everyday when | was in the hospital.
My cousin even cut her hair from long to short when Piost
mine. My Dad flew back and forth from’ Nassau. My friends
in Nassau always kept in touch with me and | received so
many gifts!! | am very blessed to have such great family and
friends who supported me through a very, very dark time.

Cancer affects everyone in a family. My brother had to leave
school, his baseball and soccer teams and came up north

My name is Hailey Davis.
- [ama thirteen year old cancer
survivor and this is my story.








with me; my mom took six months off work. The community
here-was so great in supporting me and my family. Mrs.
Ranson from Nicole’s Butterfly Kisses called and sent me
presents. My mom's boss, Mr. & Mrs. Donald Tomlinson
and his sister Ms. Elodie Sandford, always called offering
to us their places in Toronto for my Dad and brother to stay

in and for me when | first left the hospital. Even Mr.
Tomlinson’s sons’ Geoff and Chris called, came to see me
and brought me gifts. My mom’s’co-workers, Mr. Adrian
Edgecombe and Mr. Jeremy Morris, covered for her at work
which made took a lot of stress off of my mom. Teachers
from my’school, St. Andrew's, always called and emailed
me. They have been so supportive since | came back. |

_ | feel so much better now!! | am back riding three times a

week and playing soccer twice a week for the school and
once on the weekend for my team the Insurance Management
Bears. My oncologist does not think my cancer will return
which | thank God everyday for healing me. | am so thankful
for being healthy and totally excited about life!! | am a better
person now for all that | have been through.

My leukemia is rare and sadly it was missed in my blood
twice here in Nassau. My parents made a quick decision
to fly me north but what would have happened if they were
unable to do that? 1 want to ensure all kids with cancer
have the same opportunity to receive good health care here
in the Bahamas like | received in Canada. That is everyone's
tight. No one should die, especially a child because they
are diagnosed incorrectly, cannot afford to receive the needed
medicine or the necessary equipment is not on the island.

Now that | am better | am actively involved with Nicole's
Butterfly Kisses as it is my turn to help. When | was ill Nicole’s
Butterfly Kisses along with my soccer league, the Insurance
Management Bears, organized a soccer tournament to help
raise funds to assist with my medical expenses. | will always
be so thankful to them. They demonstrated how a community
cae be. Helping/supporting when you are in that dark
place. ‘

Every year Nicole’s Butterfly Kisses raise funds to help kids
with cancer here in the Bahamas. This year we are combining
efforts with Dairy Queen. 50% of all blizzard sales sold on
Saturday, February 7th and 50% of all proceeds from the
coupons sold will be donated to Nicole's Butterfly Kisses.
You can also purchase Nicole’s Butterfly Kisses t-shirts to
wear on Feb.7th. This year a portion of the proceeds will go
to help a little girl from Harbour Island that just had a brain
tumor removed and the rest will go to assist in supporting
other kids suffering from this horrible disease and purchasing
needed equipment. | am asking all to please purchase a
coupon for a Blizzard or come in on Saturday, February 7th
and purchase one. | will be there seine Harbour Bay
on that day along with others who support this worthy cause.
As good citizens it is our duty to do our part to help others
in need; please support this worthy cause organized by -
Nicole's Butterfly Kisses and Dairy Queen. | feel my future
E ae now, help us make other children’s’ futures just as
right ;

Thank you in advance, Hailey.

Bahamas urged
to ‘reach out to
Obama team’ on
trade relations

* Attornay says nation does
‘not have luxury. of deferring’
Washington trade talks in
favour of Canada deal
_* Also calls on government to
~ ‘engage’ Obama on financial
services, and use line that
harming sector will weaken
Bahamas and compromise
US national interests

By NEIL HARTNELL
Tribune Business Editor

THE Government was yes-
terday urged to “reach out” to
the new Obama administration

- to safeguard the Bahamas’ long-
term trade relationship with the
US, a senior attorney saying this
nation could not “defer” such
a move in favour of trade talks
with Canada.

Brian Moree, senior partner
at McKinney, Bancroft &
Hughes, told Tribune Business
that the Bahamas also needed
to engage the new US govern-
ment as rapidly as possible over
its international financial ser-
vices centre, and protect it from
coming twnder renewed attack
via initiatives such as the Oba-
ma-sponsored Stop Tax Haven
Abuse Bill.

“We should be penchin out
to the Americans and our trad-

_ ing relationship with them,” Mr
Moree said..“The Government
‘js reaching out to the Canadi-
ans, but. I don’t think we have
the luxury of simply deferring
the Americans.”

The Government and the
Bahamas Trade Commission
are currently focused on prepar-
ing for trade negotiations with

Canada, over a replacement for -

the existing CARIBCAN agree-
ment that is set to expire in
2011.

The Bahamas is the fourth

largest CARICOM exporter to _

Canada, sending some $23.274
million worth of goods to that
country in 2006, some 94 per
cent or $21.908 million of which

entered ‘uty-free. Although still .

less then-what the Bahamas
exports to Europe, goods —
mainly crawfish again — that are
sent to Canada still represent a
sizeable export market for this
nation.
However, Mr Moree and oth-
‘ers have argued that the
Bahamas should concentrate on
' - and not appear to ignore - its
trading relationship with the
US, its largest and most impor-
tant trading partner. Around 90
per cent of the products con-
sumed annually in this nation
are made or sourced from the
US.
Mr Moree told Tribune Busi-
ness that the Bahamas had yet

Central Bank eyes restructured loan monitoring issue |

@ By NEIL HARTNELL
Tribune Business Editor

THE Central Bank of the
Bahamas has moved to
“strengthen” regulatory scruti-
ny of Bahamian commercial
banks in the wake of increased
loan defaults, informing the sec-
tor this week that most institu-
tions still needed to enhance.

ing monitoring systems for

effectively tak- .

eventually result in the carrier .

of GBA, but said the manage- |

7 Bahamas First Holdings, the .

problem loans that have been —

‘restructured.

Stanislaw Bereza, the Central
Bank’s Inspector of Banks and
Trust Companies, in a January
26, 2009, letter to senior
Bahamian commercial bank
executives, said the next 12.
months “will be a very chal-
lenging year for. the Bahamian
financial system in general, and
commercial banks in particu-
lar”.

He warned that while the
Bahamian commercial banking
system had been insulated from
the impact of the sub-prime
mortgage crisis, and the illiquid
asset crisis that had affected
global institutions, there was
“no room for complacency”.

This, Mr Bereza said, was due
to the fact that major Bahamian
industries, especially the. hotel
and tourism sectors, were now
experiencing the full force of
the global economic downturn.

“Signs of pressures for com-

s

mercial banks have appearedin .

2008 in the significant and sus-
tained increases in loan
arrears.....,” Mr Bereza wrote.

* Carrier’s chief says ‘no secret’ that it wants to take over 100%
control at broker/agent, adding to 30% already taken in 2007

bune Business: “We have a 30
per cent equity interest in
GBA. That has not changed. It
is no secret that we have
expressed an interest in acquir-
ing the balance of the shares
that we don’t already own.
“In the process of doing
that, we agreed with the exist-
ing shareholders that in order

for us to do proper due. dili- .

gence as necessary, certain
aspects of tecordkeeping and
certain elements in the way
the business was being man-

change.

“There’s been an agreement
reached where elements of the
day-to-day. management are
going to:be done by a new

. Slate of directors and man-

agers. That may lead to a

change in ownership down the

road.”
Mr Ward, though, was quick

_ to point out that a 100 per cent

Bahamas First takeover was
‘not a done deal’, and that
GBA would retain its inde-
pendence and continue writ-
ing non-general insurance
business as per normal.
“Nothing will change with
regard to how business is writ-
ten for other carriers, as done
on a day-to-day basis,” he said.
On the management agree-
ment, Mr Ward added:
“There’s been agreement by
the shareholders on the initial
efforts taken so far. It’s already
happened, and the staff have
been advised accordingly.”
When asked whether the
management takeover had

up of another large accounts

THE TRIBUNE



@ By NEIL HARTNELL
Tribune Business Editor

THE Road Traffic Depart-
ment’s decision to start the
licensing of company vehicle
fleets a month early - extend-
ing the period to two months - is
a “step in the right direction”,
but. the Chamber of Com-
merce’s president still believes
the process is “too convoluted
and complex”.

Dionisio D’Aguilar, who is
also Superwash’s president, told
Tribune Business that he “could
never get a reason that made
sense to:me why” the Road

- Traffic Department changed the
system for licensing company
vehicle fleets two years ago.

March is the month in which
company vehicle fleets are

‘inspected and registered, and
under the old system firms were
able to issue their drivers with
the necessary, cash, insurance
papers and other documenta-
tion to enable them to pay for
the inspection/licensing when
they drove the relevant vehicle
to the Road Traffic Depart-
ment. >

Now, though, the process

involves companies submitting

all the relevartt documents to:

‘the Road Traffic Department
in advance, then making an
appointment for an Inspector
to come out to their place of
business to inspect every vehi-
cle.

This, Mr D’ Aguilar said, cre-

ated extra bureaucracy for a

company, requiring it to under-
take a mammoth co-ordination
exercise to get all vehicles in
one place at one time. Time and
money was lost in having all
vehicles off the road, and addi-.
tional problems were caused if

one did not pass the inspection

or was in a repair shop being
serviced. —
The situation was raised in

the Chamber’s Vexing Business -

Issues report, and appears to
have caught the Road Traffic
Department’s eye, given the
move to start the company vehi-
cle inspection and licensing
process in February, thus
extending it for an extra month.

Mr D’ Aguilar said: “It’s a

step in the right direction; it’s .

an administrative step, but I
don’t see why they changed it
‘from the.way it was. It’s now,
convoluted and complex. Pre-

that looked like they would not
pass a proper inspection, and it
was felt fewer would slip
through the net if they were
inspected at the company’s
headquarters. Yet he argued
this change would not eliminate
such loopholes.

In its Vexing Business Issue
report, the Chamber said: “In
the past, a company would give
cash and the insurance certifi-
cate to each of its employees
who drove a company vehicle
and instruct them, during the
course of the month of March,
to go down to Road Traffic and

viously, it was very simple.
“It’s taken a very simple
process that worked very. well
and made it into this bureau-
cratic nightmare that takes time
to co-ordinate the vehicles, pho-

‘tocopy all the documents, send

them down to Road Traffic and

license and register the compa-
ny’s vehicle for the upcoming
year. Simple, straightforward
and easy.

“For some silly reason, that
policy was changed. Now, the

-business owner is required to

take the disk off all of his/her

vehicles and make a copy of the
disk. Then the businessowner
must attach the correct insur-
ance certificate to'the correct

Company vehicle licensing still ‘bureaucratic nightmare’

March will leave all of your reg- -

istration documents stuck in an
overwhelmed bureaucracy at
Road Traffic, and your vehicles
will not be licensed by 31

March, meaning that the busi-

ness owner would either have
to take the vehicles off the road
or operate them with the gen-
uine fear of receiving a signifi-
cant fine for operating an unli-
censed vehicle.”
The Chamber added: “Clear-
ly, a simple process has been
overwhelming complicated for



no apparent reason. What used
to be a single process of giving
some cash and an insurance cer-
tificate to the driver of the com-
pany’s vehicle, is now a process
that requires many steps, many
phone calls to Road Traffic and
staff, much coordination and
massive amounts of time. This is

-an enormous nuisance.

and allow the employees of the
company to register the com-
pany’s vehicles at their own dis-
cretion.”

cial banks, with non-perform-
ing loans increasing by $49.9
million or 14.8 per cent during
that month to strike $387 mil-
lion.

Loans in arrears, meaning
they were between 31-90 days
past due, increased by $43.1 mil-

_ cent in November.

The percentage of loans in

from 10.74 per cent in October
and 10.44 per cent in Decem-
ber 2007.

“Although the value of com-
mercial loans in arrears fell mar-
ginally in November, owing toa
larger net repayment in the total
portfolio, the arrears rate still
advanced to 15.9 per cent from
15.73 per cent and remained sig-
nificantly above the, 9.26 per
cent at end-2007.

“Although banks continued
to increase their provisions for
bad loans, the faster pace of
arrears growth placed the ratio
of provisions to total arrears
lower at 21.87 per cent, from
24.41 per cent in October and
22.77 per cent at December.
2007.”

Mr Bereza, meanwhile: said
the Central Bank had restruc-
tured its Bank Supervision
Department to create a specific
Commercial Bank Unit, specif-
ically focused on oversight of
that category. The regulator
also plans to create ‘an Autho-
risations Unit during the 2009
first quarter "to increase effi-
ciency and allow the technical
staff to focus on the core super-
visory functions".

Although the Unit's functions
and responsibilities are still
being defined, a "core func-
tion" will be to approve new

THE BAHAMAS Industrial
Engineers, Managerial and
Supervisory Union’s (BIEM-

Bahama Power Company are
being hindered by ‘ ‘meddling”
from the Minister of Labour,
the union alleged yesterday,

which said it was forced to file.

an injunction to stop the minis-
ter from conducting a poll next
month that could revoke its
position as the bargaining
agents for the power company’s
managerial employees.

The poll, which was to be
held on February 2, could have

resulted in the BIEMSU losing .

its. position as the recognised
bargaining agent for manageri-
al workers at Grand Bahama
Power Company, if a majority
of voters cast ballots against it.

poll by Labour Minister Dion
Foulkes proved detrimental to
the union, as Grand Bahama
Power released a statement dis-
continuing its negotiations,
which read: “We are in receipt
of a letter dated January 9,
2009,.from Senator Dion A.
Foulkes, Minister of Labour
and Social Development, advis-,
ing that the Department of
Labour will conduct a poll on
Monday, February 2, 2009, to
determine whether BIEMSU
has the support of the majority
of the members of the bargain-
ing unit: In this regard,.all nego-
tiations with BIEMSU are here-
by suspended.”

The BIEMSU’s attorney,
Obie Ferguson, said Mr

TSEC] a aE
’ For the stories

. long ‘contractual



Foulkes’ actions amount to
“meddling” in the affairs of the
union, something he said was
unjustified and unwarranted.
“You can’t tell the people Pll
write you a letter on the 9th,
knowing quite well that you just
certified another union on Jan-

_ buary Sth, and knowing quite

well that the union and employ-
er agreed in writing that this
document would be completed
by the end of February, but you
chose to call a poll and disrupt
that,” said Mr Ferguson.

“The minister is meddling in
the affairs of the union and now
we have an injunction that will,
in effect, prevent him from con-
ducting an illegal poll and an

- unwarranted poll.” :

The BIEMSU president,
Pedro Edwards, said he felt Mr
Foulkes was over stepping his
boundaries.

“The minister has engaged in
dialogue and trying to mediate a
dispute
between Grand Bahama Power
and BIEMSU,” he said. “On
one hand claiming to be assist-
ing, but we are now finding out

that while he was assisting - so
to speak - there was another
grouping within the company
that has formed a union.

“He can’t have the company
and another group asking for
him to have a revocation poll
for a union that’s existing, when
the company claims that, in
good faith, it is negotiating with
this union.

“At the end of the exercise
there was no choice but to go
and seek an injunction from the
Supreme Court on this matter
,and fortunately we were able to
get this injunction that would
restrain the minister and his
Labour Department from hav-
ing any poll on February 2nd.”

The Grand Bahama Power
Company released a statement
yesterday saying only: “We

‘have not heard from the

Department of Labour and
Social Development on this
matter, but when we do we will
be guided by their instructions.”

Mr Ferguson said the imple-

mentation of the injunction .

Tax loopholes will
cause ‘honest firms
to fully shut down’

FROM page 1B

taxpayers of millions of dollars
per year, said the restructuring
did nothing to hold corrupt Cus-
toms officers and businesses
accountable.

He told Tribuine Business:
“It’s so disappointing to see the
Government doing what they’re
doing, because all they’re doing
is clearing the way for new,
fresh faces to come into Cus-
toms and potentially take
advantage of the loopholes that
already exist.

“They’re not holding anyone
accountable, Customs Officers
and businesses. There’s a host
of businesses that have been
making millions from this over
the years, but no one is reaching
out to find those responsible,
get that money back and take
action for what:has not been

. collected over the years.”

The businessman said that
while, “on the surface”, the Cus-
toms Department restructuring
appeared as if the Government
as trying to do the right thing,
he and others who had seen cus-
toms and tax evasion explode
over the years, “don’t see the

PUBLIC NOTICE

Effective February 3rd2009, The Bridge Authority will eliminate —
tokens as a part of our cash collection process. This change will
better assist all patrons utilizing the western bridge in accessing |
Paradise Island. To improve traffic flow, we are phasing out the

* coin machines and converting to a-coinless toll collection system.

All Transponder and Smartcard device customers will continue

to operate as usual.

To significantly reduce the waiting time and ensure a continuous
smooth flow of traffic, the following measures will be

implemented:

(1) Toll bperkees in Laives 1, 2 and 3 will have change for
small bills ONLY. You are required to have Exact Toll.

(2)
Only Lanes 1, 2, and 3.

(3)

Smartcard users will no longer have access to Lane 4;

All PLL. Residents and other transponder users are

encouraged to use the designated Lane 4 which remains

a cashless Lane.

Frequent patrons are encouraged to apply fora

During this transitional process, installation and testing will be
implemented Lane by Lane which may result in lane down-time.

However, as far as practical, all traffic lanes will be fully
operational during peak traffic hours (6am to 9am and 3pm to

6 pm).

Government as hate the

backbone to actually fix those
loopholes that exist and contin-
ue to exist”.

Adding that he knew of com-

panies that successfully evaded .

tax payments worth between

$3.5-$6 million per year, the |

businessman said: “It’s sending
the businesspeople involved in
this a clear message that the
Government is not concerned
in dealing with this and hold-
ing people accountable, so
they’re going to continue, in

their own, bold way, to do what,
‘ they’re doing. /

“Tf they’re not willing to deal
with the loopholes, for me that’s
the biggest thing, being able to
shut those down. Even if they
don’t prosecute, it will give me a
fair and level playing field, and
I can compete legitimately
against guys who have been
undercutting me for years.

“That’s the biggest thing for
me - close the flipping loop-
holes. The real essence is to shut
those loopholes a quickly and
effectively as possible - to choke
off the easy access to US cur-
rency.”

The businessman told Tri-

bune Business that the eco-




nomic environment he was fac-
ing was “deteriorating quickly”,

with sales dropping due to the
“fear factor” surrounding jobs
and incomes that was making
Bahamian consumers “pull

back” on spending. Discounts °

were now the order of the day
to.keep customers coming into
stores and holding sales at
acceptable levels, meaning

retailers were having to sacri-

fice margins.

“If we don’t deal with this
soon, you’re going to see legiti-
mate, honest, tax-paying busi-
nesses close down because they
can’t survive. A friend of mine,
who had multiple businesses,
had to shut down, and I guar-
antee that was largely due to
the ability of competitors to
evade taxes,” the businessman
said.

Zhivargo Laing, Minister of
State for Finance and the Public
Service, said this week that 24
people, all “senior” Customs

' Officers who had been in the.
’ civil service for more than 30

years, were offered retirement
packages last week.

He added that while corrup-°

tion was not the main consid-

eration in the decision to insti-

gate significant restructuring at
the Customs Department, the
Government does expect that
last week’s exercise will reduce
its occurrence.

Mr Laing said. the move was
“part and. parcel” of the Gov-
ernment’s expressed intent to

_ bring. about public sector

reform, so that key depart-
ments’ “delivery of service to
the public is of the order that
the public expects and
deserves.”

Confirming that the “overall
objective” of the exercise was
“to bring about effectiveness
and efficiencies in the organi-
sation”, Mr Laing said address-
ing corruption “would not have
been the dominant theme in
respect to this exercise”.

However, he added: “It’s our
hope to the extent that you
have improvements in the lead-
ership and management at
those levels in Customs, you are
able to encourage greater com-
pliance with good work ethics
and also to ensure that people
are doing those things that are
consistent with the law, so that
is part of the expectation that
we have as we continue this re-
organising.”

EUS ase

Bahamas urged
to ‘reach out to
Obama team’ on
trade relations

FROM page 1B

to respond to the helping hand
offered by Charles Rangel,
chair of the US House’s Ways
and Means Committee, who
had repeatedly asked this nation
and other CARICOM states
what their main interests were
with regard to a trade agree-
ment with Washington.

“I don’t think we can defer
such an important issue,” Mr
Moree said of the Bahamas’
trading relationship with the
US, “and while the Govern-
ment and Trade Commission

. are turning their attention to
Canada, we need to engage the
Americans now in discussions
on trading relations going for-
ward.”

The senior attorney also
called on the Government to

talk to the Obama-’administra- ~

. tion about the potential grave
consequences for the US, as
well as the Bahamas, should US
and other international initia-
tives negatively damage the
Bahamian financial services
industry and, by extension, this
nation’s wider economy.

“We need to engage the Oba-

ma administration through the

appropriate channels to make

the case that it’s very much in ©

US national interests to have a
prosperous and healthy democ-
‘racy just off the coast of Flori-
da,” Mr Moree said.

“The ability of the Bahamas
to continue as a vibrant and rel-
atively well-off democracy has a
lot to do with the maintenance
of a healthy financial services
industry. It’s not in the inter-

ests of the US to compromise -

that industry.”
Apart from the Stop Tax
‘ Haven Abuse Bill and other

likely initiatives,.international .
tax experts have argued that Mr_

Obama’s mere ascension to
office would be enough to give
encouragement to the OECD
and its fellow agencies to ratch-
et up the pressure on interna-
tional financial centres.

His presence in office would,
they claim, give a ‘green light’
and ‘nod and a wink’ to the

OECD, backed by high-tax.

European Union (EU) nations,
to re-start its ‘harmful tax prac-
tices’ initiative and those of oth-
er agencies.

Mr Moree said the Bahamas
needed to “prepare ourselves”
over its relationship with the
OECD, Financial Action Task
Force (FATE) and other agen-

cies.

“Everybody in the [financial |

services] industry expects for
the IMF and related agencies
to step up the pressure on inter-
national financial centres going
forward,” Mr Moree said.
'“We need to acknowledge
that, maintain the best and

brightest minds in the country |

today to deal with these inter-
national agencies, understand
their needs and requirements,
what our national interests are,
and identify what trade-offs we
wish to accommodate in our
dealings with these agencies,
rather than end up reacting to
the one or more initiatives these
agencies may take in the coming
months.”

Obama presses for

stimulus ap proval

@ By LIZ SIDOTI
Associated Press Writer

WASHINGTON (AP) —
Looking beyond expected
House approval of his $825 bil-
lion economic stimulus plan,
President Barack Obama said
Wednesday the nation is at a
“perilous moment” requiring
swift and decisive action.

“We don’t have a moment to
spare,” Obama said in the East
Room of the White House, just
hours before a crucial House

‘roll call vote. The measure

intended to steady the rico-
cheting economy was expected
to pass, but likely with little of
the bipartisan support that Oba-
ma wanted. The issue then goes
to the Senate where the new
president hopes to draw more
GOP backing.

Obama tempered the sense
of urgency in his voice with his
observation that he and corpo-
rate leaders “left our meeting
confident that we can still turn
our economy around.”

His brief remarks were
designed to put his stamp on
the debate while the action was
taking place at the other end of
Pennsylvania Avenue.

During his.talk and in the ear-
lier Roosevelt Room Session
with business CEOs, Obama
said the people running the
companies that are the engine
of the American economy are
behind him. Asked at one point
if he was confident of getting
Republican support, he replied
only: “I’m confident we’re going
to get it passed.”

Obama has spent his first
days in office trying to drum up

bipartisan support for his~

expensive and expansive plan
to help pull the country ‘out of
the year-old recession. It’s the
first major test of Obama’s pres-
idency; how he handles the
volatile situation, and the effect
of his stimulus package on the
economy, could well set the
tone for his presidency.

The House measure includes
about $550 billion in spending

and roughly $275 billion in tax °

cuts in hopes of spurring the

yesterday in Roosevelt Room of

‘. White House in Washington during

a meeting with business leaders to
discuss the economy.

Dharapak)

economy and helping those
directly affected. Much of the

‘spending would be for items

such as health care, jobless ben-

efits, food stamps and other .

programs that benefit victims

of the downturn.

On Capitol Hill, a a day of
debate on the measure opened
with most Democrats pressing
for passage and trumpeting the
measure as the elixir for what
ails their jobless constituents;
Republicans generally griped
about “insane” programs that
would be funded in the plan and

“minuscule” tax relief for small
businesses as they urged oppo-
sition.

“We need to address this eco-
nomic crisis head on,” said Rep.
Doris Matsui, D-Calif. “This
package is a substantial step for-
ward.”

“This package before us is
badly flawed,” countered Rep.
David Dreier, R-Calif., who
also lambasted Democrats. “It
appears that there is very little
focus on the merits and most of
the attention is focused on pol-
itics,” he said.

Republican support ranged

_ mostly from tepid to icy.

House Minority Leader John

Boehner wouldn’t say how he

thought the vote would turn
out, He did emphasize anew

that GOP members are worried
about billions in domestic
spending that “has nothing to
do with creating jobs or pre-

‘ serving jobs.”

“We’re for more than just
cutting taxes,” Boehner, R-
Ohio, said on ABC’s “Good
Morning America.”

Senate GOP leader Mitch
McConnell of Kentucky told

‘CNN that “where we have dif-

ferences with the House
Democrats is that the package
just doesn’t seem to reflect our
priorities, nor the president’s.”

McConnell said the propor-
tion of tax cuts versus spending
increases in the version being
pushed by Democrats has been
“crammed down” to about 20
per cent of the total instead of
the 40 per cent envisioned by
both Republicans and Obama.

Congressional leaders have
promised Obama they would
send.him the measure by mid-
February. .

In his remarks, Obama called
on everyone — corporate exec-
utives and factory floor workers,
educators and engineers, health

‘care professionals and elected

officials — to abandon a “sense
of irresponsibility that prevailed
from Wall Street to Washing-
ton.”
And he said his administra-

“tion would make certain the’

money would be spent in full
view of the public, with ways to
check where it goes and how it.
will be used — a nod to skepti-
cism about the “size and scale”
of the plan.

He left no doubt that he

_ means to see it signed into law,
_-and quickly — and that he

thinks those who stand in the
way will suffer the wrath of
angry voters.

“All we can do,.those of us
in Washington, is help create a
favorable climate in which
workers can prosper, businesses
can thrive, and our economy
can grow,” Obama said. “And
that’s exactly what I intend to
achieve - soon.” .
